Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Policy

hillary-what-difference-reuters

Hillary Clinton keeps trying to scare the American people on how dangerous Donald Trump would be to America because he would lead us into a world war. The truth is that the Obama and Clinton foreign policy have put this country in the most danger we have been in since before the beginning of World War Two. Their policies and actions in Egypt, Libya, Iraq and especially Syria have brought us closer to a serious confrontation that threatens the entire world than we’ve been since the Cuban missile embargo.

Hillary Clinton said in the presidential debate that she would impose a no-fly zone in Syria. This is the most irresponsible action that America could possibly take now. Obama put America’s reputation on the line and talked tough about attacking Bashar Al-Assad and the Syrian government if they used chemical weapons, calling it a red line. They then backed down and reached out to Russia and opened the door to giving them influence in the Middle East which had been America’s unquestioned sphere of influence. Syria has remained a Russian ally since the cold war and was Russia’s only naval base in the Mediterranean Sea.

Fast forward to today and now Russia has committed not only airpower but ground troops as well to back their former ally. Turkey a NATO ally has already shot down a Russian fighter they claimed violated their airspace raising tensions to a higher level. Meanwhile American airpower is being used to fight ISIS and back the rebels fighting Assad’s regime while the Russians are bombing the rebels we are backing. Trump has said he would meet with Putin which is more of an example of a statesman who would enter into diplomacy than our former Secretary of State.

A no-fly zone over a country in defiance of the long standing government historically backed by Russia would be a provocation that we would not tolerate given a similar situation. What are the chances that at some point American and Russian jets would engage and a shooting war would begin? Putin has been modernizing his nuclear capability while we have not. He has been testing American and NATO defenses with nuclear bombers and buzzing our naval vessels in international waters with no response from this administration. While we have shown weakness, Putin has threatened nuclear war if provoked.

That is the type of poor decisions that Hillary Clinton makes. She touts her experience as Secretary of State as an advantage over Trump yet when pressed to name a single accomplishment in her tenure she is at a loss to name one. In fact her tenure and legacy are a disaster. When she ran against Obama in the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries she had a commercial with a phone ringing and the question was asked if there was an emergency at 3:00 AM who would you want to be on the other end of the line? Now looking back at her record I would say I wouldn’t want it to be either Obama or her.

When that actual call did come on September 11, 2012 from Benghazi, Libya neither bothered to take the call or even consider the consequences important. They sent an unarmed drone to watch as brave Americans risked their lives fighting against overwhelming odds for 13 hours waiting for help that never came. No one to this day has come up with a straight answer as to why nothing was done to help once the attack started or why the State Department ignored their calls for added security when everyone else had evacuated Benghazi.

Obama flew to a fundraiser in Las Vegas being held the next morning where his only comments were,” Yesterday we had a pretty rough day”. Hillary who was the Secretary of State when an American ambassador was killed for the first time in 30 years lied to the families and sent a surrogate in Susan Rice to make the rounds of the Sunday talk shows to lie to the American people. We know she lied because it has come to light that she emailed her daughter and told her it was a terrorist attack.

Yet the most compelling part of this story was her response during the congressional hearings. Her answer should tell you all you need to know about the woman who says she’s fighting for you. When asked about the attack she said, “at this point what difference does it make”. The difference it should make in the minds of American voters is here is a woman who didn’t care about those Americans who died heroically in Libya protecting other Americans waiting for help that never came. To her it made no difference that these people were killed by terrorists while she watched and did nothing. Why should we believe there would be a difference in her caring about us?
