In one of my books I talked about how Hillary Clinton, when she was secretary of state, due to her abysmal incompetence, set up Israel for what could be its deadliest and bloodiest war. Some guy came in and gave me a one-star review, saying you can’t talk about this, you are a foreigner.
If that were the case the only topic remaining, as already raised by Rodrigo Duterte, the head of the Philippines, after calling Obama “a son of a whore,” would be how soon does everyone join the Russian-China alliance; this assuming that Hillary gets in to continue the botched policies of Obama around the world. For eight years now, and that includes the watch of Hillary, China has been flexing its muscles in the South China Sea over disputed oil and natural gas resources, which puts both the Philippines and Vietnam in the cross-hairs. Duterte, despite the Philippines having a formal defence treaty with the US, must be figuring that you can’t rely on the US any more; the best approach before the shooting starts is to deal with China directly.
Hillary, if she had been a minister in a parliamentary system, would have had to resign in disgrace for permitting the ambassador to Libya and three others to be killed by terrorists at Benghazi. Her political career would have been over. Under Obama since failures are so ubiquitous, almost standard, no one ever has to pay a price for anything. Eric Holder, former justice secretary, set the bar when in his gunwalking program more innocent foreigners were executed by American arms that at any time since My Lai. The list included a US border patrolman. He did not even get a slap on the wrist.
The UN adopted Resolution 1701 in order to bring to a halt the Second Lebanon War between Israel and Hezbollah, a terrorist organization that works for Iran. A main point was that Hezbollah was not to be rearmed.
When the war ended Hezbollah still had 7,000 missiles, but short-range, not much of a threat. When Hillary became state secretary in 2008, Hezbollah had rebuilt its areas from the rubble and was ready to rearm. The shipments from Iran began in earnest.
Resolution 1701 was an American initiative. If they don’t ride herd on it to make sure it is implemented, no one else will. For four years Hillary watched while Iran supplied to Hezbollah 100,000 of the most advanced and deadliest missiles plus drones. Today they possess probably 120,000 missiles, which can strike at much of Israel with ports and oil refineries in range. That’s an arsenal bigger than any EU nation with the exception of the UK and France. They’ve also got an estimated 8,000 fighters, battle-tested in the Syrian Civil War, that could make offensive actions on the ground if it came to that.
Israel can expect to be hit by 1,500 missiles per day, minimum. In the 2006 war the maximum rate was 180 per day. In the Gaza wars the rate never exceeded 100 per day.
That’s not the worst of it. Salami, commander of the Revolutionary Guards, said that Iran possesses tens of thousands of ballistic missiles stationed in various countries ready to fire when the war with Israel begins. The IDF has confirmed his figures. He said the goal of this war will be the annihilation of Israel.
Obama, meanwhile, was kind enough to promise to free up $150 billion as part of his phoney Iran nuclear deal, so that the Iranians could purchase another 100,000 missiles to supply to Hezbollah.
Hezbollah is bogged down in the Syrian Civil War for the time being. But that does not mean that mishaps can’t happen. When Israel killed an Iranian general Hezbollah fired across the border and killed two soldiers. If they had hit a school bus full of kids, the war would have started right there.
Israel will have no choice but to level Lebanon if attacked. Much of Syria will go too. If the ballistics start to fly, Israel will be within its rights to nuke Tehran.
None of this would have happened if Hillary had done her job. Hezbollah today would have no weapons or at least a lot fewer. All she had to do was issue warnings, perhaps pass another resolution, make a show of force. She did absolutely nothing. Nor has she ever been called to account to explain how she let Hezbollah rearm itself with such huge numbers of missiles.
The messes in both Iraq and Syria where Islamic State, a new and vicious terrorist organization, materialized, also happened on her watch. It will take historians to sort out who’s to blame for this. Obama withdrew all American troops precipitously from Iraq claiming they did not have the legal authority to remain. That’s like the Italian mafia saying they could not get their cut from local hoods running a neighborhood protection racket because they wouldn’t give it to them. Even so, once Islamic state appeared in Iraq, if not in Syria, there was still time to correct course and wipe them out. That kind of action required a strong state secretary who knew what was happening, not Hillary, who was as clueless in Iraq and Syria as she was in Lebanon and Libya. That tells you what you are going to get if she is president; those who do not follow Dutarte and line up with the Russians and Chinese are lost.
While ignoring the troubles of the world, Hillary spent her time as state secretary running her Clinton Foundation racket. They call this a “charity” but only 5.7 per cent goes to help the needy. The rest goes into the pockets of the Clintons. It’s “pay to play.” You pay, you play.
Hillary sold off 20 per cent of US uranium ore to Putin for kickbacks that totalled $145 million. She even required Putin to pay $500,000 to Bill to sing a song, or give a speech, whatever the scam is. She sold weapons to everyone, no questions asked, at twice the pace of the former Bush administration. That brought in another $140 million in kickbacks. Qatar bought far more weapons than it needed, and some experts say that the surplus ended up in the hands of Islamic State.
The worst was what she did in Haiti after the earthquake. Two honest candidates had reached a runoff for president. She ordered the Haitians to replace the second candidate with a crook, with known ties to the disgraced Duvalier dictatorship. They complied, the crook won, and this, the Haitians say today, enabled the Clintons and their friends to steal billions from Haitian relief fund, which did very little in the end for the victims.
None of this you will hear from the US MSM, mainstream media, except from the foreign owned Fox News. The MSM will spotlight a Trump company inquiring in the 1990s at the cost of $68,000 about doing business in Cuba, then illegal. Not a word will be said about the theft by Clintons and friends of billions from Haitian relief funds. They will spotlight Trump calling a Miss Universe who was 60 pounds overweight “Miss Piggy” as if this demonstrates how mean he is to women. They will not talk about Juanita Broaddrick, the nursing home administrator that Clinton raped, nor his other attempted rapes, and how Hillary intimidated and threatened women he abused from going public. Nor will they tell you of the numerous times Clinton travelled after he left office on the private Boeing 727 jet called the “Lolita Express” belonging to paedophile pimp Jeffrey Epstein, later indicted. There was a bed on the plane with underage girls there for the pleasure of the passengers. Hillary knew that Bill was molesting underage girls this whole period and said nothing. Nor did the MSM, at least since the election season started.
The only thing that’s happening in this area now is that Democrats on the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) are now trying to pass a regulation that forbids foreign owned media from advocating for or against a candidate in US elections. That would shut up Fox News. And then Hillary could steal all she wanted while president and Bill could molest as many underage girls as he wanted, and who’s to know? The MSM won’t say a word. I hope that rule doesn’t also ban books. Even getting a one-star review when writing about America’s Criminal Couple is better than that.
