Libya Is Hillary Clinton's War

According to Assange, Clinton’s emails reveal a plan, hatched months before the West’s intervention in Libya in March 2011, to make it the signature conflict of her tenure as secretary of state, and a podium from which to realize her presidential dreams.

"Libya more than anyone else's war was Hillary Clinton's war. Barack Obama initially opposed it. Who was the person who was championing it? Hillary Clinton. That's documented throughout her emails,” Assange said.

“There's more than 1,700 emails out of the 33,000 of Hillary Clinton's emails we published just about Libya. It's not about that Libya has cheap oil. She perceived the removal of Gaddafi and the overthrow of the Libyan state something that she would use to run in the general election for president. So late 2011, there's an internal document called the "Libya Tick Tock" that is produced for Hillary Clinton, and it's all the... it's a chronological description of how Hillary Clinton was the central figure in the destruction of the Libyan state.”

But the scheme not only failed on a personal level, after Clinton was largely blamed for allowing a jihadist ransacking of a US compound in Benghazi in 2012, but also continues to haunt the country, which remains in a state of civil war, and Europe.

“As a result, there [have been] around 40,000 deaths within Libya. Jihadists moved in, ISIS moved in. That led to the European refugee and migrant crisis, because not only did you have people fleeing Libya, people then fleeing Syria, destabilization of other African countries as a result of arms flows,” said Assange.

Should Hillary win on Tuesday, and should the neo-cons in Washington finally get their day in the sun with the "pacifist" Obama gone, as the WaPo recently reported, we - and many others - expect more "Hillary wars" in America's future.

Endless war or stagnation; those are the choices! :?

Few in Washington are willing to work with Donald Trump. If Trump is elected his autocratic style will not sit well with the current power structure. One might argue that stagnation is better than war, and from a human rights perspective I suppose that is true. Still stagnation will not help the declining fortunes of an angry middle-class, and will most likely lead to a significant increase in internal conflicts tearing this country apart from within.

Small wars on the other hand can escalate quickly and often have unforeseen consequences.

IMHO We truly face a lose-lose choice

On a brighter note, in my household, I've decided to name Nov 8 (or 1st Tue after the 1st Mon on Nov) National Lets get Drunk Day (...or high, or what ever else will get you through the election) :alc:
