Hillary Clinton Serves Us KISSINGER KOOL-AID
Sunday morning newspaper, steaming hot coffee, peaceful reverie, lounge chair on my deck, birdsong chorus in the backgroundbliss until I saw the Outlook section of the Washington Post with two, yes two, life size headshots of Henry Kissinger. My peaceful easy feeling went full throttle grumpy in a matter of seconds. Which was quite justified when I found that this dual image travesty illustrated a review by Hillary Clinton of Kissingers new book (no I wont provide a convenient Amazon link). As a feminist, I am completely in favor of electing a woman president. It is long overdue. But as anyone who has read my work over the years knows, I am no fan of Hillary Clinton. Yes, she has done some good things, but her world outlook is as dangerous as the male politicians who have preceded her. Lest you doubt this, read the following few paragraphs from her very long review:
During the Cold War, Americas bipartisan commitment to protecting and expanding a community of nations devoted to freedom, market economies and cooperation eventually proved successful for us and the world. Kissingers summary of that vision sounds pertinent today: an inexorably expanding cooperative order of states observing common rules and norms, embracing liberal economic systems, forswearing territorial conquest, respecting national sovereignty, and adopting participatory and democratic systems of governance.
This system, advanced by U.S. military and diplomatic power and our alliances with like-minded nations, helped us defeat fascism and communism and brought enormous benefits to Americans and billions of others. Nonetheless, many people around the world today especially millions of young people dont know these success stories, so it becomes our responsibility to show as well as tell what American leadership looks like..."
Success stories? Through what warped lens is she viewing the world and our country? Rare is the book review that could be characterized as chilling. In this case, it is an apt descriptor. Clinton is correct that many people, especially the young, dont know these stories. But those of us who do call foul. This review is nothing short of an alarming adulation of Kissingers damaging tenure.
mouth and says something - I have to wonder about her true feelings
Kissinger created a lot of chaos in the world
She maybe expects it keeps growing, for to "secure" her nomination, by appearing therefore as "the savior"! Her silent towards Fergusson crime spoke already a lot. She was then too busy...promoting her, she and herself!
Just another proof.....
She doesnt care ethics, only her ambitions.
Yup!.....Straight from the war criminal's mouth.....he supports republicans!
