Hillary's bad judment makes her unfit to be Commander-In-Chief.

Hillary supported regime change in Iraq. That policy has resulted in hundreds of thousands killed, thousands of American soldiers killed, countless injuries, and horrific chaos that continues today.

Hillary supported regime change in Libya that has resulted in mass suffering, death, and chaos that continues today. She refers to it as "smart power at its best."

Hillary did not oppose the coup that ousted the democratically elected president in Honduras. That coup fueled the violence in Honduras that contributed to a refugee crisis at our border.

Hillary supported nation-building in Afghanistan and even bigger troop increases in Afghanistan than Obama approved. The approved increase resulted in hundreds of American soldiers losing their lives.

Hillary not only supported the Israeli attacks in Gaza, but was not even willing to condemn Israel for its disproportionate use of force in those attacks.

1. Bernie's poll numbers make is so that her IWR vote will not change the outcome.

 

Unless he draws voters from a broader coalition. I do not think it likely.

5. That's where you'd be wrong. He already has the numbers he needs

 

and it will be a upset in the making similar to Canada's elections which also resulted in a upset that no-one expected.

How do you think he can win without their support?

No, he doesn't have the numbers he needs. For him to succeed, he will have to work much harder than he has been.

82. I would love for Bernie to be President, but, he does NOT have the numbers that count.

Nobody does yet. The numbers that matter are winning State Primaries so you get all the electoral votes from those States. The winner has to get LOTS of the Super Delegates votes too. Fro what I've read, Hillary has quite a few Super Delegate pledges so far. It's a foolish statement to say, at this point, that ANYONE has the number they need.

The other VERY IMPORTANT THING you need to promote is the Dems gaining back contol of the Houe AND THE Senate or no matter who is the Dem elected to the presidency won't matter because with a Pub Congress, the Dem Prez won't be ale o keep ANY of thoe promises!

Instead of arguing among ourselves about who's the better candidate, we ALL need to promote our choice to all our neighbors, fellow employees, relatives, etc. to help our choice candidate WIN those primaries!

her judgement and past political decisions. Campaigns are about ideas and records, not just relationships.

19. It means being worthy to bear the title of "Democratic Nominee"

Obviously some disagree about her basic qualifications to serve and bear that title. That is what this OP is about, not about polls and relationships with groups of the electorate.

Hillary's bad judgement makes her unfit to be Commander-In-Chief.

Third Way candidate who will reverse her leftward positions as soon as she gets her self-entitled victory. It will be because of the thoughtless robotic actions of the voters she has snookered. And THAT is sad for the entire country. Just a further movement to the right.

I did not threaten in ANY way. I can not even conceive of what kind of threat you read into that. I referenced, like the OP, that Hillary has supported many wars and has been in favor of Regime Changes around the world in countries with POC who seem to avoid your notice cause they are not your community as you constantly define it.

This is an observation about your specific post I responded to and your constant posts I have read over the past few days. I have never seen any bit of concern in any of your posts for people outside your community. I could have missed some since I don't read every post. However, you post a lot and your posts all seem to have a common theme.

There is no threat there. Trying to say I threaten you in a post about Hillary's predilection for war is rather unsettling. I can not even imagine what you are thinking. Perhaps you didn't like the substance of the post because it is true. Lots of people have died in wars supported by Hillary even members of your community.

I'd posted in ONE thread supporting you after someone stated you'd received a letter. Point out ONE SINGLE post by me to you or about you that wasn't in support. I think it'll probably end up being made up out of thin air, just like the claims you made up above.

I cannot get that op to load. It is too long for my bandwith.
AK does not have the best internet yet.

Let me guess? About the relationships between certain women and other women and how difficult it would be for them to find girlfriends? It is the way those women attack feminism as weak and something beneath them, they are so much stronger and better than us weak feminists. That is why.
And as the mother of a dead child myself, I hate to watch people use that pain to attack others. I have seen it and it hurts. I have done it and hated myself later. Having close girlfriends helped me make it though. I do not trust women who are so very hard on other women.

No, I take back that thank you ... almost caught me there, though.


“I’m sorry you feel that way/feel upset/feel hurt…”


This fake apology really shows a big lack of empathy. The person stating it is actually apologizing to themselves for the fact that you bothered them with your feelings. What it’s really saying is, “Too bad, but it’s your fault if you think there’s anything at all wrong, and in fact, YOU’RE the one bothering ME.” It’s focusing on the wrong person’s behavior and implying that the upset person’s response is inappropriate or abnormal. It also suggests that the speaker intends to do nothing about the matter.

The healthy alternatives to “I’m sorry you feel that way” and “I’m sorry you got upset” are, “I’m sorry I made you feel that way” and “I’m sorry I upset you“.

It is a personal issue. I am sorry that I hurt you personally. But am sorry YOU WERE HURT, by your convo with Steven. His intentions were not what you thought. That is the reason for that wording, Polly.

Going through things does not make one perfect. If I lacked empathy, I'd toss back insults for you lashing out and calling me evil. But since I have been there, I understand. I can take what you say much better than those who have not been there because I get it. It is not an easy load to bear. There was a time when many experienced what we have. Thankfully, it is no longer that way. And we are both glad for that I think. Better us than weaker souls to bear this load. Many would not survive it.

As far as Steven, I know what his intentions were .... we have a history. I judge people by their actions, not just towards me, but towards others. He never once even tried to explain 'to me', or god knows, apologize. He was so 'hurt'!, and you and others have viciously attacked me! for his hurt. Not even once considering mine. I have no illusions as to how hated I am by you and yours and normally it bothers me about as much as knowing the IQ of a gnat, but this .......... this was something I've never experienced before. That level of hatred, sadism, and yes ......... evil.

This board has gotten so hateful. It's nothing like it was years ago. Cruelty like I've never seen anywhere.

From what I understand, the chaotic shithole that is Iraq was not just about the removal of Saddam; but rather, the complete destruction of the entire Iraq government and political system (and army), without any workable plan for re-establishment. Whereas, in Libya ... the removal of Gadhafi, left the political structure and government (and army) in place.

The only fault(s) in saw (again, with the benefit of hindsight) in the removal of Gadhafi was OVER estimating the solidary of the "Revolutionary People Movement" and UNDER estimating the stability of the Libyan political and institutional structures. Immediately after Gadhafi's removal, the Movement's factions, did what faction leaders do, fought to dominate the other factions, and that crippled the political and institutional structure.

And what's your justification for the Honduras coup?


First, I'm not "justifying" anything; but, to your question, I do not know enough about the Honduras coup to offer an opinion.

because he was warned that he would destabilize Iraq, if he killed Sadam. Sadam was an evil man, but he held Iraq together as a country. Things were actually better there under Sadam than they are now, especially for women.


I’m afraid the bitter truth is Iraq and Libya were better off under the tyrants toppled by an arrogant and naive West


Cruel and despotic though he was, Saddam did offer Iraq a measure of stability, which was destroyed by the invasion. This repulsive strongman at least held his country together, which the divisive Shia-dominated government in Baghdad cannot do.

A similar point can be made about the no less repellent Gaddafi. In the Libya over which he presided for more than 40 years, there were no factions of militias killing innocent people and destroying their homes and livelihoods.

Where would you prefer to try to live a half-normal life — in Gaddafi’s mostly peaceable Tripoli or in a city fought over by pitiless gunmen?

Would it be better to inhabit Saddam Hussein’s Mosul or the city now transformed into a killing field by Islamic State? I know where my preferences would lie.

349. Libyan rebel ethnic cleansing and lynching of black people

http://humanrightsinvestigations.org/2011/07/07/libya-ethnic-cleansing/


In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, journalist Sam Dagher pointed out the obvious fact that the Libyan war is aggravating ethnic tensions in that country. The article talks about the fate of Tawergha, a small town 25 miles to the south of Misrata, inhabited mostly by black Libyans, a legacy of its 19th-century origins as a transit town in the slave trade:

Ibrahim al-Halbous, a rebel commander leading the fight near Tawergha, says all remaining residents should leave once if his fighters capture the town. “They should pack up,” Mr. Halbous said. “Tawergha no longer exists, only Misrata.”

Other rebel leaders are reported as:

“calling for drastic measures like banning Tawergha natives from ever working, living or sending their children to schools in Misrata.”

In addition, according to the article, as a result of the battle for Misrata:

nearly four-fifths of residents of Misrata’s Ghoushi neighborhood were Tawergha natives. Now they are gone or in hiding, fearing revenge attacks by Misratans, amid reports of bounties for the

http://forward.com/opinion/national/324013/how-i-would-rebuild-ties-to-israel-and-benjamin-neta/

I will do everything I can to enhance our strategic partnership and strengthen America’s security commitment to Israel, ensuring that it always has the qualitative military edge to defend itself. That includes immediately dispatching a delegation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to meet with senior Israeli commanders. I would also invite the Israeli prime minister to the White House in my first month in office.

The dangers facing both our nations in the Middle East require bold and united responses. We must remain committed to preventing Iran from ever acquiring a nuclear weapon, and to vigorously enforcing the new nuclear agreement. I would move to step up our partnership to confront Iran and its proxies across the region, and make sure dangerous Russian and Iranian weapons don’t end up in Hezbollah’s hands or threaten Israel. I also will combat growing efforts to isolate Israel internationally and to undermine its future as a Jewish state, including the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. I’ve spoken out against BDS in the United States and at the U.N., and will continue to do so.

So yeah, we DO know she's got Iran in her eyesight and its proxies - Syria, Russia, China etc - a recipe for eternal war. Her past bad judgement actually IS a predictor of the future but even if we were to just try to dismiss it using the right wing mantra of "hindsight is 20/20", we have her actual words promising more of the same for the future.

No thanks. Even as you and others proclaim to be all about racism in this election, you are supporting the candidate whose promising to chew up and spit out the most POC with a tangible policy that disproportionately targets the poor and disenfranchised.

He was fighting for civil rights during the height of it all. He has fought for women's rights and LGBT rights before it was fashionable. He is a leader on social issues where as Hillary only comes around to agreeing with those rights after she knows the people will accept that position. She does it for political gain where as Bernie does it because it's the right thing to do, he does it because he fights for social justice and has been doing so for decades.

You posted that racist's garbage on Sept. 22. The other OP you are referring to was posted on Oct.15.

Funny how you can just not care about someone being a racist when it suits you to try to score political points. So if someone does something you don't like you deem it okay to throw any principles you may have out the window. Good to know that's the sort of person you are.

And as long as people - yourself included just a few posts up - keep saying Bernie is about economics only you will hear of his record of fighting for civil rights for the last 50 years.

What made it okay to post it before the 'stockholm' post? Why is it okay for you to use a known racist's opinion piece to score political points? The hypocrisy still stands. You are exploiting a very real issue in order to use it to spew hatred towards Bernie attempt to smear him.

And you posted it in all seriousness, calling it interesting and taking what the racist said to heart, believing it. cali posted about the racist who wrote that opinion piece, saying that now we have people posting what a racist says. And that would be you posting what that racist said.

And oopsie... cali's post was from Sept.23 and yours is from Sept.22. In fact, it seems that cali's post was ABOUT YOUR POST. That's the OP that first exposed all the vile hatred over at the Clinton Cave, the 'hate all things Bernie' site where you posted that racist's opinion piece.

So, seriously, as a black woman who's rants are all about racism, why is it okay for you to post a racist's opinion... just because she says unfavorable thing about a man you have irrational hatred for? That shows a lack of principles.

And you posted a racist's opinion about Bernie in all seriousness in an attempt to smear him. And of course at the Clinton Cave it went over like gangbusters, they were all salivating over it. But it was written by a racist who had some choice words about Obama too. So when you go ranting about racism and how Bernie is so bad with that and you use a racist's opinion to bolster your case, well that is hypocrisy and in really bad taste. It shows that you will use a serious issue for political gain when it suits you. That's almost inconceivable, except that I see you do it and defend it over and over.

It doesn't matter what anyone else posted. It matters only what you yourself post, or I myself post. No one makes you post anything, no one makes you decide you don't need to stand by your principles. You decided not to to that all by yourself.

And you posted more than the link. You went on about the contents later in the thread, taking what the racist had to say to heart.

If you would stop trying to smear Sanders and saying he's only about economics when he has been fighting for civil rights since he was in his twenties - he got arrested for it ffs - maybe I would stop having to point out that you exploit racism as tool to smear Sanders.

You say people who criticize you do it because you are a black woman and people want to keep you down. That's not it at all. It's because you consistently spew hatred toward Bernie and his supporters and attempt to smear him by spreading a false meme and then you go and use a racist's opinion to do so.

Bernie thought people would vote strictly based on policy. He thought wrong. He thought he could come back to the black community after 40 years and get votes based off of what he did in the 60s and a few votes here and there for welfare. He was wrong. His grass roots thought they could change our minds by innundating us with Pro Bernie with MLK spam. They were wrong. They thought they could harass our protestors and our civil rights acitivist and shame them into not bugging Bernie. They were wrong. They still think harassing and bugging us and constantly 'correcting the record on Bernie' would be helpful and not crossing any boundaries. They are wrong.
They think they can be rude and uncivil, but since they are self righteous in the rightness, they think that their rightness is a shield to hide their rudeness behind and would save them from the disgust of those they bother. Wrong.

Some sometimes seem to think that piling up on me and harassing me one by one will help Bernie get more recognition. Wrong. Will shut me up. Wrong. Will slow this slide down. Wrong.

Hillary has treated BLM so much worse than Bernie but you just choose to ignore that.

Then you play victim when people call you on your shit and try to make it about you being a black woman that people are trying to shut up. No, this is about you being an abrasive and smear mongering human being who is not telling the truth about Bernie. You have shown on here and on the Clinton Cave that it's all about going after Bernie and his supporters, not about standing up for principles.

I am doing just fine. Just got a 120 on my midterm for my art history class. Boom! Gettin it!!
Now, Bernie? He has no position with the African American community. Period. We decide what position he has with us, not you. We do not want him. Thanks.

Smearing? I like Bernie. I do not like his grassroots. I am fighting against the stuff I see there. And if he cannot control them? How the heck is he gonna run America in a way that is beneficial for blacks? Can't.

Anybody with eyes can see how you guys go after me one by one by one. If ANY BLACK FOLKS read these threads, they can see for themselves what's going on. If you wonder why he does not rise with us? Hee hee! Black folks CAN READ. They can see you. It is no wonder they take one look and go straight back to Hillary. Hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

333. cali's post was on Sept.23, yours was on Sept. 22. How did you steal the article from her?

Also, her OP was about how disgusting it was that people are posting that racist's opinion and it was exposed later in the OP that it was you who had posted it over at the Clinton Cave.

Your OP was presenting the racist's opinion piece for discussion and downthread you said it was interesting and took what that racist said to heart.

Two completely different things. So don't try to sully cali's rep by saying she's posting a racist's opinion when she was saying how disgusting it was that someone would post that shit.

Her OP:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=616648

There is discussion in there about how that racist's opinion was being posted on DU and how you had posted it at the Clinton Cave earlier. So unless there's another OP from cali about this you did not steal this from cali.

337. Because you are saying that cali posted a racist's opinion when she did no such thing.

Why don't just take responsibility for what you did? You posted a racist's opinion just because they said negative things about Bernie. So when it comes to racism, if you can use it against Bernie it's not so bad.

You think you've explained yourself? No, you haven't. You've said it's fine that you posted it because someone else posted something offensive. You've said you got it from someone else, which you didn't since you posted before her AND because she didn't post the racist's opinion to accept it and discuss it, she posted that others were posting racist shit (you, for one) and provided examples. You posted it as truth and took it to heart, and your fellow Cavers just loved it.

So you keep trying to push off the responsibility of your posting a racist's opinion and excuse it as if it's not offensive and hypocritical and opportunistic. When you constantly rant about racism and then you exploit the issue to score political points it shows what your rants are really about, it's all about smearing Bernie.

You owe cali an apology for trying to sully her and say she posted racist shit.

Sen Sanders wants to solve the problems of racism as well as poverty. He hasn't been successful fighting against the Congress-People that are funded by big money. As a Democrat I would hope you would recognize the dangers in letting billionaires own our government.

History lesson: On the eve of the invasion, she did not object to it on the grounds that it was preemptive war. Instead, she supported Bush's position. She said, "Tonight, the president gave Saddam Hussein one last chance to avoid war, and the world hopes that Saddam Hussein will finally hear this ultimatum, understand the severity of those words, and act accordingly."

so far they seem to think you are wrong and Bernie is stuck. You keep doing and saying the same things but it isn't changing anything. The numbers stay the same. Yet all you can think to do is attack Hillary Clinton despite the fact that it continues to solidifies her enormous lead.

Instead of using a modicum of critical thought and changing your approach, it's back to the same thing that isn't working.

What is working so well for Hillary? Why is she still beating Bernie so badly? Perhaps because she ignores him and runs against the republicans.

Or maybe it's some other reason that seems to make Hillary's support increase whenever she is attacked. Whatever it is, it works for me. I just find it fascinating to watch and read threads like this.

194. Hillary hasn't lived her political life in an Ivory Tower like Bernie.

It's easy to be pure representing a state like Vermont who homogeneous population is smaller than the NJ town I was born in. Hillary was representing her constituents in New Your State when she made her IWV. As well, it wasn't exactly like checking a box that said "go to war". It was a vote to give the President the power to do so if evidence showed it was necessary. Why would anyone presuppose that the POTUS would lie us into a war?

Last night Bernie couldn't even answer a simple question about Isis. Not because he doesn't know what he would do but because he would have to either admit that he would do nothing or that he would fail his purity test. Bernie has never been put to the test in any way. He has always had it very easy and voted for a largely liberal, white and gun owning constituency.

People like Hillary, who have been in powerful positions where decisions have to be made that reflect the millions of diverse people she represents as well as her own beliefs, have to take all of that into account. Just as she had to take into account the POTUS while she ran the State Department.

Bernie has been living and working in a vacuum for decades. Hillary has been living under a microscope. Bernie doesn't seem to have learned much that is new or bothered to listen to anyone else's opinions or ideas. Hillary has been learning from her successes and failures for decades and the people that she works with, know it and endorse her because of it. Bernie???? The only people who seem to think he should be POTUS are his fans and they don't know him at all.

197. I commend you for making an attempt to defend Hillary

Your characterizations of Bernie are extreme hyperbole and way off the mark, but what I find most incredible are the following statements:
Hillary was representing her constituents in New Your State when she made her IWV

I have got to say that is pretty close to the most absurd and ridiculous thing I have ever read on DU. It was a profound disservice to her constituents by any objective and logical measure. Is it necessary to point out to you the consequences of the Iraq war and the fact Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11?

It was a vote to give the President the power to do so if evidence showed it was necessary. Why would anyone presuppose that the POTUS would lie us into a war?

Because the PNAC neocon policymakers in the Bush administration were hell bent on invading Iraq long before 9/11 and the case for war being made by the White House Iraq Group was clearly BS propaganda. If you were at DU in 2002 and were paying attention, you would know that.

Your argument is that Hillary did not know that and was fooled by Bush. Seriously, by October 2002 any intelligent person who dug beneath the rhetoric could see the case for war was bogus.

Personally, I don't believe Hillary was so incompetent or stupid that she couldn't see that as well.

HRC was either on board with the neocon agenda or she stuck her finger in the post-9/11 winds and decided it was better for her political career to appear "strong" on national security rather than have the courage to truly represent her constituents and the rest of the country by standing up and speaking truth to power.

That's a huge disqualifier in my book, as it should be for anyone who recognizes the horrible consequences of the IWR vote and the compelling need to change our country's disastrous military approach to foreign policy.

203. This time you didn't make an attempt to defend Hillary ...

... or to rebut any of the points I made, including your ridiculous statement that Hillary "served her constituents" with her IWR vote. Seriously, if you believe that then you are making a concerted effort to delude yourself.

Instead of a rational defense for Hillary's actual record you lash out in anger and fling the word "pure" as if it actually means something. I've never seen a politician to whom that word accurately applies. The plain fact of the matter is that over a number of decades Bernie has fought his way up through politics from local elections to the Senate, and has continually made pragmatic choices that have his former Socialist allies highly critical of his lack of purity.

Hillary Clinton is also a pragmatic politician, but to what ends? What ends did she have in mind when she voted to put in the hands of the obviously lying neocon administration of GW Bush the decision for invading Iraq? If she was actually fooled by the lies, she's incompetent.

If the "ends" were to serve her constituents and the security of our country, the IWR was wrong.

Not just wrong; disastrously and tragically wrong. Abysmal judgment when it mattered most, but apparently a quality you don't see as negative in a Commander In Chief.

It's not a question of purity or pragmatism, but of judgment and the change our country desperately needs.

Hillary Clinton was a hawk then, and she's a hawk now. She has not changed. She's still wrong.

The President took us to war. Hillary and many other Democrats voted to give the POTUS the power to take the country to war if necessary.

I do not believe that she is a war monger but I do believe that she is capable of using force when our best information deems it necessary. It is not her fault that the Bush administration lied to Congress. It was a difficult vote for her to make but it was up to the President and his cabinet whether to go to war or not. To stop a President from acting to protect the country is almost unheard of.

Bernie's vote was pretty easy. There would be no repercussions for him or the country either way. The votes to pass were most certainly committed long before his Independent vote was official.

If the IWR passed, Bush would take us to war in Iraq. It put the decision in his hands, and that decision was already made.

240. REALITY is what you choose to ignore.

Most of what you typed has absolutely NOTHING to do with what I posted. "Denmark = USA!" is much closer to a Republican talking point than to what Bernie actually said.

Obviously, your mind is closed to the reality of what happened in the run-up to the war in Iraq.

You really need to re-examine your thought process if you think Hillary served her constituents by voting for the IWR, or that it wasn't obvious Bush would invade Iraq once given the authority.

Seriously, you're fooling yourself. It's one thing to support a candidate with serious flaws, but it's something else to convince yourself to believe some of the nonsense you've written about Iraq and the IWR vote.

I think it's doubtful Bernie will win the Democratic nomination. The entrenched establishment is behind Hillary, along with piles of cash from Wall Street. However, I think it's possible because I'd rather hold out some hope for meaningful change than be resigned to more of the disastrous status quo -- and because Bernie generates enthusiasm beyond the Democratic base.

The only reason to vote for Hillary is to keep a Republican out of the White House, but that's not enough reason for millions of voters who are disgusted with the status quo to get out and vote. Bernie may very well have a better chance to win the general election than Hillary. GOTV is the key, and Hillary doesn't have it.

You have a nice day to, but remember to look around (hard to see things, wearing those blinders).

55. How in the hell do you expect Hillary to get elected?

You said it yourself. Democrats who don't like Hillary sound like right-wingers. Half of the Democratic party can't stand her and will be clinically depressed if she is the nominee. That will cause low voter turnout within our own party. It's the BASE of the party--the ones who do the phone banking, the door knocking and are the most motivated to get involved and vote--who can't stand her. HALF of our party--the ones who voted for Obama over Hillary in 2008.

And you've got the entire Republican party who loathes her.

Just how in the hell is she supposed to win an election with so many who dislike her and don't want her?

Hillary led Obama by whopping margins in all states. She led all national polls as well She even led in Iowa, in November 2007.

We all know how that turned out.

Laugh it up fuzzball. Hillary is faring worse today in the states that vote first in the primaries (Iowa and New Hampshire) than she was in 2008.

26. Calling it bad judgement is very generous.

 

It assumes good intentions and honest mistakes.

Why not just assume that war is the policy Bush and Clinton wanted for some reason? Especially when a few years later Hillary Clinton was Pitching Iraq As a 'Business Opportunity' for US Corporations.

In a less damning view we could consider that the main motive for supporting Bush's invasion of Iraq was just for political expediency. Like maybe she didn't want to seem soft on invasion policy or something. Maybe she thought supporting an illegal invasion and occupation of another country would help her get elected president some day

So yeah "bad judgement" is a very generous explanation.

She even had the distinct advantage of intimate access to the "expert" advice of a former President who had received the highest level of intelligence briefings only a year or two previously. Plus I don't know why she and others in Congress couldn't have gone over to CIA and NSA and demanded to see and hear the raw WMD intelligence for themselves using their own interpreters. (Of course current intel didn't exist because the WMD programs hadn't existed for years.)

Interestingly, before the debate Friday night Rand Paul told Chris Matthews that he considers Hillary a neocon who would likely get the U.S. involved in some wars if elected President.

Bernie polls quite well against Republicans, and he will greatly increase turnout by inspiring people with a genuine campaign, whereas the cynicism of a Hillary campaign will depress turnout.

Amazingly enough, a surprisingly significant number of Republicans and independents realize the Republicans have been lying to them and are seeing the veracity of Bernie''s campaign.

And was it a lapse of judgement when she supported the Patriot Act that she now admits needs to be reeled in?

That would be to actually change her hawkish foreign policy and to acknowledge that these military solutions in the Middle East are destructive to our national security, to our citizens in uniform and people in the countries we bomb, and to desperately needed programs at home that are underfunded to pay for these insane wars.

Hillary's apology was nothing more than political necessity in the wake of the disaster she helped create.

In October 2002 I vowed to never vote in a Democratic primary for any politician who voted for the IWR. I might consider changing my mind if I was convinced the candidate had truly reformed and could be trusted to bring about substantial change in how we conduct our foreign policy.

Sadly, I have seen nothing to convince me that Hillary Clinton has changed.

I refuse to vote for HRC not only because of her record, but because I think she will continue the disastrous militarism.

he says he will use drones, but then drones are produced by Lockheed Martin in which he votes to produce more and F-35's. Sanders is lacking in foreign affairs. He dances on questions on foreign affairs, it is too late to start developing a foreign affairs knowledge.

263. And, I think he's wrong.

 

Hillary is not lacking in foreign affairs. She makes the wrong decisions and institutes bad policies and will probably continue to do so if she is elected. Which is why I won't for her.

265. How many people have died from American military intervention?

 

Some of us actually look at the broader picture - the deaths of millions that we know about in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Syria. The deaths in Mali, Somalia and Yemen in our ongoing covert operations against "terror" that can only be estimated.

We have our bloody hands everywhere and its only made us less safe, created more terrorists, and de-stabilized the ME for many generations to come.

I'm not oblivious to gun violence in the US. I abhor it. But Sanders has an F rating from the NRA precisely because he's pro gun control.

I found the rating on this site

http://www.ontheissues.org/Domestic/Bernie_Sanders_Gun_Control.htm

Honestly if its a D, I'm not quibbling. It means his record on gun control is strong.

Too much gun violence and innocent people getting killed.

275. I hate those getting killed here and the millions we're killing overseas.

 

I notice you've decided to ignore the rest of my post.

But I can't ignore that HRC has vowed to continue as a war hawk.

BS has an F rating from the NRA because he's so pro gun control. It's crazy to think he's unconcerned about gun violence in the US with that rating from the NRA. And I 110% agree that too many Congress persons are in bed with the NRA. It's an outrage and I join you in solidarity on that point.

276. Sanders has said he would take military action and use drones also.

He would use drones because it funds one of his favorite corporations, Lockheed Martin, he votes to continue with the F-35 program though the program is flawed. Military contractors, a big portion of corporate welfare.

https://berniesanders.com/issues/war-and-peace/

I agree the use of drones is hideous and the F-35 is bad but he's not a hawk like HRC.

There's no way to spin his positions that way.

282. He has voted for military action more than once. I am not going to deny Clinton

Voted for IWR, she has explained she made a mistake. I still have not heard Sanders say he is sorry for his votes on gun issues. I am going by what Sanders said recently on the military action. In our world today we don't know what we will face next week so it just might be possible action would be needed even for the most peace loving person. I don't like war but sometimes we do things we dislike. We need to get past the poor decision of George W on invading Iraq, we have enough other issues where we need to be making changes without dwelling on which one is more hawkish, they are both hawkish.

218. She is completely unfit without question!

 

Her policies and stances have helped to thousands of people & Iraq is certainly one of those. Anybody who voted for the biggest blunder in our history that is the Iraq war has absolutely no business sitting in the white house.

It's not just that though, there's so much more.

If elected, Hillary's minimum wage stance of $12/hr would enable people to still rely heavily on government assistance simply because it's not a living, where as Bernie is for $15/hr. While it may not seem much, that $3/hr difference is groceries, it's the difference in making rent and it's things like paying your heating bill in winter.

She doesn't support single player and instead favors Obamacare which while a good start, still leaves millions uninsured. That is completely unacceptable.

On and on it goes.....from pot to Libya.
There's only one real solution who can unite us a country. That's Bernie.

219. Can't argue with any of those points. All true. Hillary is a hawk. I wish people would not

try to deny it, because the evidence is so strong there isn't much point in doing so.

She should just admit it and go from there rather than trying to explain it.

All those horrible interventions have failed miserably as far as this country and those countries are concerned.

However a whole lot of Defense Contractors benefited enormously.

223. Hillary has already promised eternal war. She's put it in writing as policy

 


I will do everything I can to enhance our strategic partnership and strengthen America’s security commitment to Israel, ensuring that it always has the qualitative military edge to defend itself. That includes immediately dispatching a delegation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to meet with senior Israeli commanders. I would also invite the Israeli prime minister to the White House in my first month in office.

The dangers facing both our nations in the Middle East require bold and united responses. We must remain committed to preventing Iran from ever acquiring a nuclear weapon, and to vigorously enforcing the new nuclear agreement. I would move to step up our partnership to confront Iran and its proxies across the region, and make sure dangerous Russian and Iranian weapons don’t end up in Hezbollah’s hands or threaten Israel. I also will combat growing efforts to isolate Israel internationally and to undermine its future as a Jewish state, including the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. I’ve spoken out against BDS in the United States and at the U.N., and will continue to do so.

This is a promise for eternal war going forward. Iran's proxies? Russia, Syria, China etc.

It doesn't get any clearer than this. Added on top of her past disasters, she's a grave threat to this country.

225. We need a President who will hesitate to wage war. One that will try diplomacy

and all venues before waging war. War has become a game and our military if too often used to ensure things other than the safety of America and the American people.

although I do somewhat agree I see opinions as valid posts. The points of dissension are valid talking points on all subs. This is a pretty mild post compared to what is coming out of the hill camp and is a true fact...

233. You'll tell people not to vote for her if she's the nominee?

I mean, it's one thing to not get your choice nominated, but if she's "unfit", you have to draw a line.


Or maybe, this is just lazy hyperbole?
