[What follows is excerpted from an article by attorney Bruce Fein headlined Hillary Clinton’s appalling enthusiasm for war that was published in yesterday’s edition of The Washington Times:]
Hillary Clinton exhibits an appalling enthusiasm for United States wars not in self-defense, i.e., legalized murders on an industrial scale that create enemies while destroying our liberties and prosperity at home.
To William Tecumseh Sherman, war was “hell.” To Abraham Lincoln, war was a “scourge.” But to Hillary Clinton, war is a coveted instrument of foreign policy in which the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.
If she is elected president, the United States will be fighting gratuitous wars every hour of every day of her presidency. That should give pause. (...)
Despite such hallowed wisdom, Mrs. Clinton has supported every war initiated by the United States not in self-defense for more than twenty three years since she first occupied the White House as first lady: Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Yemen, Somalia, and international terrorism generally.

In 2011, then-Secretary of State Clinton championed a “humanitarian” war against Libya to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi after he had abandoned WMD, Libya had been removed as a state sponsor of terrorism, he had handsomely compensated the victims of the Lockerbie bombing, and he posed no threat to the United States. She has fiercely defended the war as “smart power at its best.”
