U.S. Foreign Policy ‘Elite’ Eagerly Await an Expansion of Overseas Wars Under Hillary Clinton


Your average American Hillary Clinton supporter will smugly head to the polls on November 8th, entirely self-assured of his or her vital role in the defeat of fascism in these United States. It won’t take long for such childish delusions to be vanquished by the horror of subsequent reckless and unnecessary imperial conflagrations that will be inevitably unleashed by their savior throughout the world.

The extreme dangers faced by the planet as a result of neocon warmonger Hillary Clinton becoming President have been apparent for a very long time. Oliver Stone and many others have vocally warned about it, and I’ve covered the topic on many occasions; including in the following posts:

Lifelong Democrat and Former RFK Speechwriter Comes Out For Trump

Now, courtesy of a newly published article at The Washington Post, we are once again forced to confront this very uncomfortable reality. Here are a few of the more disturbing excerpts from today’s piece:

There is one corner of Washington where Donald Trump’s scorched-earth presidential campaign is treated as a mere distraction and where bipartisanship reigns. In the rarefied world of the Washington foreign policy establishment, President Obama’s departure from the White House — and the possible return of a more conventional and hawkish Hillary Clinton — is being met with quiet relief. 

The Republicans and Democrats who make up the foreign policy elite are laying the groundwork for a more assertive American foreign policy via a flurry of reports shaped by officials who are likely to play senior roles in a potential Clinton White House.

It is not unusual for Washington’s establishment to launch major studies in the final months of an administration to correct the perceived mistakes of a president or influence his successor. But the bipartisan nature of the recent recommendations, coming at a time when the country has never been more polarized, reflect a remarkable consensus among the foreign policy elite.

This consensus is driven by broad-based backlash against a president who has repeatedly stressed the dangers of overreach and the limits of American power, especially in the Middle East. “There’s a widespread perception that not being active enough or recognizing the limits of American power has costs,” said Philip Gordon, a senior foreign policy adviser to Obama until 2015. “So the normal swing is to be more interventionist.”

Taken together, the studies and reports call for more-aggressive American action to constrain Iran, rein in the chaos in the Middle East and check Russia in Europe.

The studies, which reflect Clinton’s stated views and the direction she is likely to take if she is elected, break most forcefully with Obama on Syria. Virtually all these efforts, including a report that will be released Wednesday by the liberal Center for American Progress, call for stepped up military action to deter President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and Russian forces in Syria.

This is what passes off as “liberal” these days.

The proposed military measures include calls for safe zones to protect moderate rebels from Syrian and Russian forces. Most of the studies propose limited American airstrikes with cruise missiles to punish Assad if he continues to attack civilians with barrel bombs, as is currently happening in besieged Aleppo. So far, Obama has staunchly resisted any military action against the Assad regime.

Even pinprick cruise missile strikes designed to hobble the Syrian air force or punish Assad would risk a direct confrontation with Russian forces, which are scattered throughout the key Syrian military bases that would be targeted.

“You can’t pretend you can go to war against Assad and not go to war against the Russians,” said a senior administration official who is involved in Middle East policy and was granted anonymity to discuss internal White House deliberations.

Inside the White House, senior administration officials regularly dismissed calls for military force from the foreign policy establishment as the product of “too much college, not enough knowledge,” writes Derek Chollet, a former top Obama administration official, in his new book “The Long Game.”

Other White House officials derisively referred to Washington’s foreign policy experts as “the Blob.”

As much as I’ve criticized Obama for his many costly foreign adventures, he is an absolute peacenik compared to Clinton. Let’s never forget that the biggest foreign policy disaster of his Presidency, the destruction of Libya, was the brainchild of his then Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Everyone has kind of given up on the Middle East. We have been at it for 15 years, and a lot of Americans think it is hopeless,” Hadley said. “We think it is not.”

What would we do without people like Hadley around to screw things up?

“The dynamic is totally different from what I saw a decade ago” when Democratic and Republican elites were feuding over the invasion of Iraq, said Brian Katulis, a senior Middle East analyst at the Center for American Progress. Today, the focus among the foreign policy elite is on rebuilding a more muscular and more “centrist internationalism,” he said.

This is an absolute disaster waiting to happen. As I tweeted earlier today:

Brace yourselves everyone, the next four years are going to be very, very ugly.

In Liberty,
Michael Krieger

  1. I don’t understand, Mike. If Hillary Clinton virtually guarantees future war and conflict, then doesn’t that compel a vote for Trump?

    What exactly would a vote for Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, Giant Meteor, or any other candidate accomplish?

  2. I vote for people to stop voting , stop paying their mortgages,credit cards,car payments, taxes. I vote for a viral jubilee.

    • THAT is an EXCELLENT idea. Unfortunately, too many Americans are asleep, and don’t realize that by having a viral jubilee, they could literally take back their country. But, take it back, from who, exactly?

      Who, and what exactly, are BEHIND and FINANCING Hitlary Clinton? FIND OUT!

      Who and what actually comprises the CFR/CIA “Shadow Government” embedded within and controlling the U.K., U.S., Saudi, Israeli, & “E.U.” governments, as well as most, if not all of the so-called British Commonwealth governments? FIND OUT, HERE:

  3. As John Michael Greer has pointed out, the US ruling elite cannot imagine losing a war. This does not mean coming home after an inconclusive quagmire like Vietnam. It means losing and signing the treaty pushed in front of you just to get your troops home.Twenty-five hundred years ago Sun Tzu said that when the army marches abroad, the treasury will be empty at home. Hilbama’s signature foreign policy accomplishment has been driving Russia and China into alliance despite centuries of animosity. They are ready. If they were not they would not be standing up to the US as they are. Defeat and insolvency await during a Clinton administration.

  4. Facebook has blocked me from public comment posting of this , Hillary has already been bribed .

    The FBI cover up through Lawless Means shows this .

    What was the US Asset
    that was used as the bribed is the
    Question ?

    Look at the Credits in this video , it is HUGE !!!!!


    If Hillary has already been bribed whatever was bribed is
    grounds for Impeachment as this article shows ;

    For months, I have
    been arguing that Hillary Clinton should be impeached.

    • None of that matters. She appears to untouchable and the election is a waste of time as its fixed. The latest wikileaks release confirms that. Enjoy the days that are remaining.

  5. I support Donald Trump as his foreign policy would avoid interventionism, defund NATO (IOW pay their own way), and peace and perhaps an alliance with Russia against ISIS. At any rate as Trump evaluates US trade deals he’ll undoubtedly be scrapping most while opening and expanding trade deals with Russia. However, none of that really matters!!! The 2016 US presidential election WILL be stolen for Hillary Clinton as all the owners/controllers of US media, US government, indeed, US economy are angling to do this. And, of course, Hillary will impose a no-fly zone over Syria, and the US air force will shoot Syrian and Russian jet out of the sky, AND, of course, we will have war with Russia which will certainly turn nuclear from the get go! I have resigned myself to this. Short of the US military intervening to prevent a Clinton presidency along with US Patriots storming the government offices to administer justice to governmental traitors that will be the end of humanity as the story of life on Earth comes to it’s conclusion.
