Democrat War Party Convention Kicks Off Monday

Democrat War Party Convention Kicks Off Monday

by Stephen Lendman

Both wings of America’s duopoly system support endless wars on humanity. They’ll rage under Trump if elected in November. The difference between him and Clinton is he’s less likely to start WW III. 

Hillary succeeding Obama is too great an unthinkable risk - a Wall Street tool, a war-profiteer’s dream, a ruthless rogue actor, the greatest threat to world peace of any presidential aspirant in US history. 

Don’t let her gender fool you. She’s more demon than Democrat, more war goddess than peace advocate. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance if she’s commander-in-chief of America’s military. 

She and husband Bill urge NATO enlargement, enhancing its power and reach, wanting it used as a global enforcer of US policy, Hillary saying “we cannot afford to let the greatest alliance in history slide into military irrelevance.”

On Saturday, Clinton/Kaine debuted in Miami before a handpicked audience on Florida International University’s campus. Both lied, claiming they’ll promote “a strong progressive agenda.”

Their public record disproves them - pro-Wall Street, pro-war, anti-labor, anti-populist. Kaine saying “we’re going to make the American economy work for everybody, not just those at the top” belies its opposite trajectory since the neoliberal 90s.

Expect silence on the stump about Hillary’s rage for war, orchestrating the rape and destruction of Libya and Syria, as me-first lady urging husband Bill to bomb Belgrade, as US senator and secretary of state backing all America’s wars of aggression. 

She relishes endless conflicts, abhors peace, supports belligerence over diplomacy, premeditated aggression her strategy of choice.

She’s militantly anti-Russia, anti-China, anti-Iran, wanting all sovereign independent nations transformed into US vassal states.

She backs Zionist zealotry, supporting Israel’s regional hegemony as America’s junior partner. Professor Denis Rancourt is right, saying “(y)ou want to see a truly insane USA, then vote Hillary.”

Months earlier, John Pilger asked “(h)ow many people are aware that a world war has begun” - so far just “propaganda…lies and distraction (able to) change instantly” by intent or mistake.

A second Clinton co-presidency makes the unthinkable possible, waging wars with super-weapons able to end life on earth in pursuit of America’s hegemonic aims.

Increasing numbers of US-led NATO combat troops are massed on Russia’s border. Nazi-infested Ukraine in central Europe is a dagger targeting Russia’s heartland. 

So are Pentagon missile defense systems intended solely for offense - able to deliver first-strike nuclear attacks on strategic Russian and Chinese targets, from installations in Romania, Poland, S. Korea and other locations to follow.

Obama’s Asia pivot challenges China belligerently. All independent nations risk being toppled by color revolutions or wars.

America’s empire of bases, its first-strike nuclear policy, its land-based strategic bombers, sea-based warships and submarines, its rage for world dominance together represent a combustible mix risking disaster - especially with war goddess/she devil Hillary in charge, her finger on the nuclear trigger as US commander-in-chief if elected in November.

America’s rage for unchallenged hegemony represents humanity’s greatest threat. A second Clinton co-presidency risks WW III. 

The possibility should terrify US voters to resoundingly reject her. World peace hangs in the balance, perhaps life on earth.
