Hillary Assures Escalated Wars As President

Hillary Assures Escalated Wars As President

by Stephen Lendman

Trump is no peacenik, far from it, wanting larger than ever military budgets, used for endless wars.

A previous article discussed a rogue’s gallery neocon hawks infesting national security teams of both candidates, indicating dirty business as usual no matter who succeeds Obama - Hillary the most dangerous, nuclear war possible, maybe likely with her as commander-in-chief.

Commenting on last weekend’s New York and New Jersey bombing incidents, alleged pipe bombs found in a backpack, and a Minnesota man stabbing a reported nine people before being shot, Hillary accused Trump of “giving aid and comfort” to terrorists, promising as president “to go after the bad guys and we are going to get them.”

Claiming she’s the only presidential candidate able to make “hard decisions to take terrorists off the battlefield,” she failed to explain they’re deployed as US imperial foot soldiers.

“We know that Donald Trump’s comments have been used online for the recruitment of terrorists,” she ranted. ISIS is praying for his victory, she claimed, adding foreign adversaries could sway the election in his favor.

A notorious serial liar, it’s hard imagining anyone believing her rantings. Her threat to world peace and security should terrify everyone.

As commander-in-chief, continued US wars of aggression are certain, likely escalated beyond today’s level, possibly challenging Russia, China and Iran militarily, risking unthinkable nuclear war.

Should Americans trust a presidential candidate promising endless wars, threatening humanity’s survival?

A Final Comment

One-sidedly pro-Hillary/anti-Trump neocon Washington Post editors shamelessly said she alone “acted like a leader,” responding to last weekend’s New York, New Jersey and Minnesota attacks.

Instead of reporting what each candidate said, they praised what they called Hillary’s “calm and caution one naturally expects from a leader,” - ignoring her rage for endless imperial wars against invented enemies, certain to escalate dangerously with her as US president.
