No Interventionist is Fit to be President

June 6, 2016—In under two minutes, Jacob Hornberger, president of the Future of Freedom Foundation, sums up and reviews Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy address given in San Diego.

Well, Hillary Clinton gave her much ballyhooed talk in California on foreign policy, but it really turned out to be really just a personal attack on Trump. She didn’t really tell us where she stood, except to essentially say I have experience in foreign policy, and therefore, I should be president. Yeah, experience as an interventionist.

Look what her interventionism did in Libya. It has thrown the entire country to civil war, tens of thousands of people are still dying. She acted like a Roman consul, where she said, I came, I saw, I conquered, I killed Gaddafi, or words to that effect.

And then you’ve got the regime change operation in Iraq, which she was a big supporter of. Of course, she says she regrets it now — it was a mistake, but she treats it like a mistake that you make turning left at an intersection when you should’ve turned right. She has never expressed any remorse for the hundreds of thousands of people that have been killed in Iraq in this illegal war of aggression that was waged against that country.

And then look at her regime change operation in Syria. It is a direct cause of the massive refugee crisis, like the Libya regime change operation, the refugee crisis in Europe. She wants to confront Russia with a no-fly zone in Syria, thereby creating the potential for a nuclear war with that country.

In other words, she doesn’t recognize that it is interventionism itself that is the problem. Let’s face it. No interventionist is fit to be president
