Bernie's common sense comments on ISIS - August 2015

Last edited Sat Dec 12, 2015, 11:44 AM - Edit history (2)



Very interesting info on Saudi Arabia....the whole conversation is interesting.

He would be, will be, SUCH a good president for US.

Editing to Add, for contrast...

....But now, in late 2011, Hillary Clinton’s State Department was formally clearing the sale, asserting that it was in the national interest. At a press conference in Washington to announce the department’s approval, an assistant secretary of state, Andrew Shapiro, declared that the deal had been “a top priority” for Clinton personally. Shapiro, a longtime aide to Clinton since her Senate days, added that the “U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army have excellent relationships in Saudi Arabia.”

These were not the only relationships bridging leaders of the two nations. In the years before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia contributed at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation, the philanthropic enterprise she has overseen with her husband, former president Bill Clinton. Just two months before the deal was finalized, Boeing -- the defense contractor that manufactures one of the fighter jets the Saudis were especially keen to acquire, the F-15 -- contributed $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to a company press release.

The Saudi deal was one of dozens of arms sales approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department that placed weapons in the hands of governments that had also donated money to the Clinton family philanthropic empire, an International Business Times investigation has found.....

I wonder if we'll hear Hillary say that American taxpayers shouldn't be paying for the majority of costs in the fight against ISIS, on behalf of Saudi Arabia? That maybe Saudi Arabia should be helping US out in our fight which primarily benefits Saudis? Maybe use some of those fighter jets we sent them?

After all, it was Saudi Arabians who attacked US on 9/11.

hmmm....

1. Has he said anything about foreign policy since August?

Can't be president of the US and ignore the rest of the world.

4. Perpetual war

Why do we choose the anxiety of war over the calmness of peace?
