of chaos should not throw stones in a glass house
Hillary Clinton's fears concerning her rival candidate appear
to be justified. At
present she seems to be the most likely future president, and there is
good reason for asking the question – Is Mrs. Clinton throwing
stones in a glass house when she viciously attacks Donald Trump? Her efforts as Secretary of State are among the most warmongering in
America's modern history. Should she become president, it
seems highly unlikely that we would ever see the dawn of world peace.
Hillary Clinton become the next U.S. president, the possibility of
continuing wars in the world appears to be dangerously real. We must closely examine the candidates' willingness and
ability to create a better world. Under which one of the two candidates
does world peace seem to be the most likely outcome?
year, political analyst, Diana Johnstone, published her book "Queen of
Chaos: The Misadventures of Hillary Clinton". The purpose of the book was to warn the world of the consequences if
Clinton were to be elected president.
months ago (June, 2016) Hillary Clinton gave an important speech on U.S.
national security. In this speech, she warned us of Donald Trump as being –
"the most dangerous candidate for US presidency ever seen".
She portrayed Trump as a liar with bizarre and
dangerous ideas, a person who very easily (by mistake?) could start a
nuclear war. Electing Trump for president would,
according to Hillary Clinton, be like "playing roulette" with our
Clinton's fears appear to be justified. As in the current situation
she seems to be the most likely presidential candidate, the following question
must be asked: Is Clinton throwing
stones in a glass house when she attacks Donald Trump as a warmonger? Judge
deals and efforts as Secretary of State of the US government have been
among the most militaristic in U.S. modern history. During her term in office when Hillary Clinton was politically
active, there was hardly a single war in which she was not eager to
participate. During the past two decades she has
actively supported all the U.S. war adventures – e.g. her husband's
bombing of Yugoslavia and Kosovo in the late 1990s, the illegal war against
Iraq (2003) and supporting Israel's invasion of Lebanon in 2006.
the 2008 presidential election, Hillary Clinton threatened Iran (80
million people) with a "total obliteration" should Iran attack
Obama's presidency, she unreservedly supported the U.S. bombing of seven mostly
Muslim countries – Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Iraq and
managed to convince President Obama and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to
enter into war with Libya – a war that ultimately led to the devastation of
that country, including the cruel execution of Muammar Gaddafi after brutal torture. Hillary Clinton commented on this occasion with a laugh –
"We came, we saw, he died!"
fully supported the coup in Honduras (2009); she
further supported Israel during the Gaza wars of 2009 and 2014 and
the illegal coup in Ukraine in 2014.
Violation of the US Constitution:
Clinton always unreservedly supported Obama in the U.S. drone warfare.
Clinton has supported Obama's policy of impunity for torturers during GW Bush's
Clinton has used her own private emailer in her correspondence with
foreign politicians and military and in exchange for services.
Clinton has used the family's private foundation (the Clinton Foundation) for the
Pay for Play scheme that rendered political favors to highly dubious dictators
and business dealers in exchange for huge sums of money to the Clinton
Clinton supports U.S. emergency legislation – such as "The Patriot
Act", which was rushed into law in the wake of 9/11. It allows widespread indiscriminate eavesdropping
and the support of military tribunals and indefinite detention
of "terrorist" suspects, even for life.
Clinton has supported mass surveillance of ordinary people, including UN
officials and politicians of friendly countries. This amounts to constitutional
violations which were disclosed by Edward Snowden.
Questionable financial links and support:
Clinton is the prime Candidate for
the military-industrial complex. She enjoys full support from
the Republican Party's most hawkish representatives - such as former Vice
President Dick Cheney and Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, Victoria
us take a look at the Clinton Foundation. Where do the 2 billion $ emanate
from? Contributions in abundance come from people like George Soros and
from dictatorships in the Middle East such as Saudi Arabia. Henry Kissinger, who engineered the military coup in Chile on President
Nixon’s direct orders, supported the military coup in Argentina and Indonesia's
invasion of Timor, now works as her close friend and mentor.
creates chaos and chaos creates refugees. A large number of countries
have been devastated. We are facing a refugee
situation which the West can no longer handle. The risks of a major war between NATO countries and Russia have
increased dramatically. The
probability of Sweden becoming a primary target in such a
conflict has also increased (by the host country agreement, etc.).
being armed to the teeth, especially in
nuclear weapons, NATO military bases encircling Russia and repeatedly
organizing coups d’état on Russia’s doorstep, provocative military exercises
and the demonization of Putin – all this gives Russia a good reason to believe
that US / NATO is preparing for war.
fact that Russia resorts to counter measures should not be difficult to
understand. The combination of US and NATO provocation and their non-stop
propaganda makes for a small incident easily turning into a major disaster.
situation today resembles the one which prevailed just before the outbreak of
the First World War. The great powers were then too heavily armed and
ready to attack following the slightest incident.
thought of an American president provoking a nuclear war would be the
ultimate nightmare. Which one of the presidential candidates do we hope will win -
that is now the question!
