Hillary To Deliver Syria To Jihadists? – OpEd


According to Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy advisor, Jeremy Bash, if Clinton is elected she will order a “re-set” of US policy toward Syria to emphasize the “murderous” nature of the Assad regime. As the Telegraph reports, Hillary Clinton will breathe new life into the “Assad must go” camp. She will likely launch a full-scale US invasion of Syria.


Said Bash:

“A Clinton administration will not shrink from making clear to the world exactly what the Assad regime is. It is a murderous regime that violates human rights; that has violated international law; used chemical weapons against his own people; has killed hundreds of thousands of people, including tens of thousands of children.”

Of course claims that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people is the long since disproven neocon cri de guerre to push Obama into an attack on the Syrian government. The 2013 gas attack near Ghouta was likely a provocation by the rebels hoping to draw the US directly into their fight.

This “he gassed his own people” line is the Syrian version of Saddam’s “WMDs,” a lie repeated ad infinitum to make the case for war.

As far as violating international law, the entire two year US intervention in Syria is in clear violation of international law. The US has no legal right to bomb Syria.


Clinton’s advisor informs us that as president his boss would involve the US in everyone else’s affairs: “Mrs Clinton believes that problems around the world can more easily be solved when America is involved and in each of those problems or crisis,” he told the Telegraph

If Hillary becomes president and gets her way with a Syria “re-set” the prime beneficiary will be radical Islamists. There literally is no secular, moderate opposition to the Assad government.

How do we know the jihadists will come out on top? Her last great intervention, the “liberation” of Libya should be precedent. Gaddafi was no angel, but until shortly before he was overthrown he was a Washington ally, a secular counterpart to creeping Islamization of the region. After the 2011 “liberation” strongly backed by Hillary, Libya has turned into a hellhole of competing radical Islamist militias and warlords. ISIS and al-Qaeda were unheard of in Libya before Hillary got her hands on it. Now it is rotten with them.

When it comes to Syria, Hillary means war.

    First of all, I do not think she will win the election, because she has nothing but economic lies and agenda that she will forget, fictitious economy depending on financiers, oil, and military industrial complex, phony and weak imperialism, militarism, and patriotism. Mr. Trump will beat her by 6.5 percentage point, because the American people will know her very well. If she wins, her policy will be the same as President Obama’s imperialist policy in the Middle East. She will try to use Muslims against Muslims (and this why she does not use the term Radical Islam), but her Muslim army will not be materialized, and even some terrorist groups may fight US forces. If she uses US troops effectively, then the war will continue and will drag for a long period, because Iran, Hezbollah, and Iraq will not allow Syria to be disintegrated from their region and be controlled by other regimes. This war will be the worst and the most dangerous war that her administration will face. Israel will not get involved because Hezbollah will defeat Israel for the third time. President Obama knows this very well, which has taken the approach of Leading from Behind or by using terrorist groups to fight the Assad regime. Finally, her expected war will weaken the country against China, Russia, and Iran.
