Hillary Calls for Killing 'a Lot of Civilians' in Syria
by Nick Bernabe - October 12, 2016
The media paid little attention when Hillary Clinton advocated killing civilians and starting a war with Russia during Sunday’s presidential debate — probably because the U.S. media is actively cheering on these very actions. In fact, the only real news coverage generated from the mention of a no-fly zone in Syria was when the media slammed Donald Trump for saying he doesn’t advocate using military aggression against Syria (and by default, Russia) despite Republican Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence’s opinion to the contrary.
“Trump Throws Mike Pence Under The Bus At Debate,” claims the Huffington Post. “Trump Shrugs Off Scandal, Backs Russia, and Throws Pence Under the Bus,” says Foreign Policy magazine. Washington Post had the best title, dumbed-down for the appropriate audience: “Mike Pence says Donald Trump didn’t throw him under the bus on Syria. But Trump really, really did.”
What the Washington Post won’t tell you is that it’s fully backing Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the presidency — and that if she follows through on the promises she made in the debate, America will be facing two new major wars if Hillary becomes president. Judging by the fact that mainstream media has literally not covered or critiqued Clinton’s no-fly zone debate comments, they must really, really want America involved in a couple more wars.
But let me break down my headline — because Hillary Clinton’s promise to create a no-fly zone in Syria sounds pretty harmless, right? First, let’s summarize what a no-fly zone actually is:
A no-fly zone can be scaled from small to large, from a complete ban on enemy aircraft to a partial block on military aircraft. It essentially means controlling the airspace of an entire region or country. A no-fly zone would require bombing out air defenses; attacking airports; destroying aircraft; intercepting aircraft; engaging in air-to-air combat; placing boots on the ground; operating existing military bases while establishing new ones to house equipment and troops; employing radar, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft; and creating all of the infrastructure needed to support this kind of major operation.
And it won’t be just a few hundred boots on the ground, either. According to the New York Times, [I]“mposing a no-fly zone, [Gen. Martin E. Dempsey] said, would require as many as 70,000 American servicemen to dismantle Syria’s sophisticated antiaircraft system and then impose a 24-hour watch over the country.”
That was General Martin E. Dempsey’s estimation before Russia entered the Syrian theater to defend the Assad regime. The number now might be more like 100,000 American boots on the ground.
Creating a no-fly zone in Syria is particularly harmful to Syrian civilians because many of Syria’s air defenses are located in densely populated areas. Hillary Clinton acknowledged as much in a (formerly) secret speech to Goldman Sachs recently leaked by WikiLeaks:
“To have a no-fly zone you have to take out all of the air defense, many of which are located in populated areas. So our missiles, even if they are standoff missiles so we’re not putting our pilots at risk — you’re going to kill a lot of Syrians… So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians.”
So there you have it: by calling for a no-fly zone in Syria, Hillary Clinton, in her own words, is knowingly advocating killing “a lot of civilians.”
But nobody is brazen enough to start a war with nuclear-armed Russia, right? I mean, that’s some terrifyingly apocalyptic absurdity that surely, the media would take seriously. Well, if we’re to take Hillary Clinton’s, Russia’s, and the Obama administration’s policies and statements at face value, that’s exactly what a no-fly zone in Syria would trigger.
Let me explain.
Amid souring relations between the United States and Russia over the Syrian conflict, diplomatic ties have been all but severed. Russia has now moved advanced anti-aircraft weaponry into Syria that it claims will be used to protect its personnel on the ground from air attacks. Russia says it will not hesitate to shoot down American aircraft if it feels its troops in Syria are threatened. In response, the United States has said it “maintains the right to self-defense against advanced anti-aircraft systems sent to Syria by Moscow.”
If Hillary Clinton wants to successfully establish a no-fly zone in Syria, she will have to bomb Russian air defenses. In turn, as Russia has promised, it will shoot down American aircraft that threaten its military presence in Syria.
And there you have it, folks: Hillary Clinton’s war with Russia. But don’t take my word for it — here’s U.S. Marine General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, speaking in September of this year about the implications of controlling Syrian airspace:
This is the "lesser of two evils" the Muslims will be running to vote for and the Muslim organizations are organizing the Muslims to vote for. Just as the Muslims voted for Bush and Obama!!!!
No One Messes With the Armed Muslim in Cleveland’s Public Square
By Michelle Goldberg - 7/21/2016
CLEVELAND—On Tuesday afternoon, a bearded man with an AR-15 slung across his back stood in Cleveland’s Public Square, a plaza near the site of the Republican National Convention. That in itself wasn’t that unusual; there are a fair number people with facial hair and weapons milling about downtown. What made him stand out was his white knit skullcap. Micah Naziri, from Yellow Springs, Ohio, was an armed Muslim in a sea of often explicit Islamophobia.
He hadn’t had any confrontations, which, he said, was partly the point. “When there’s bullies, and they say, ‘We’re gonna get the Moslems, creeping sharia, we’re gonna stop it,’ and they’ve got their guns, and then somebody comes who is actually well-trained, actually better armed than them and not the least bit intimidated or afraid, they just don’t seem to feel like they want to talk as much,” he said.
Not far from where he stood, a group of burly men who called themselves Bible Believers ranted against Black Lives Matter. One of them held a giant black sign saying, “EVERY REAL MUSLIM IS A JIHADIST.” Another, who was black, wore a T-shirt saying, “PROUD TO BE AN INFIDEL. Islam is a LIE.”
Naziri and the Bible Believers avoided each other. “I don’t anticipate any violence whatsoever,” Naziri said. “It’s a statement.” All the same, he believes the oppressed should arm themselves. “I think anyone of any historically oppressed group or religious or ethno-religious minority should be arming themselves and training in self-defense,” he said. It will be interesting to see how many of the Second Amendment–loving Republican delegates agree.
Two things to note here.
One, no one picks on a Muslim when they know he can/will fight back.
Two, Muslims who support blacks lives matter movement can see here what these Islamophobes think of Islam and Muslims.
Someone Put A Hitler Quote On Trump’s Picture — His Fans Didn’t Even Notice
by: John Prager - December 31, 2015
You know, it’s easy to say Donald Trump is just like Hitler. Really easy. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the easiest, “Donald Trump is literally Hitler” registers at the lowest point. Perhaps lower.
Trump has become known for being the mouthpiece for everything racist and horrible his bigoted fans want to say. Build a wall to keep brown people out? Sure. All Mexicans are rapists? We’ll go with that. Force Muslims to register in a national database and wear special little badges like a certain moustachioed German dictator? Go Donald! Ban all Muslims from entering the United States even if they are coming back from vacation? Hope they like where they went! Round them up into concentration camps? Don’t worry — it’s only a temporary measure.
Trump’s candidacy has greatly helped the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups recruit. Neo-Nazi playground Stormfront has even had to upgrade its servers to handle all the new traffic Trump is generating, and it’s not abnormal to see fans beat up minorities who speak up for themselves (don’t worry — Trump says they are just people who want to “make America great again”) or scream “White Power” at a rally. He’s even been known to share images of German soldiers marching in front of the White House and Neo-Nazi propaganda on Twitter, and to keep a book of Hitler’s speeches by his bedside for light reading.
It’s also no secret that Trump’s supporters, who polls reveal are mostly racist and uneducated individuals who don’t care if he lies or even forces Jews to register in a national database. So, what happens when you take a photo of a candidate who is just like Hitler, slap one of Adolf’s more famous quotes on it, and present it as if The Donald himself said it? One brave soul decided to find out:
The individual, who asked us to blur his name, shared a meme bearing Hitler’s words to the Facebook group, “The Trump Party,” attributing the words instead to the 2016 GOP presidential hopeful.
The meme was shared 28 times, and accumulated 103 “likes” in 11 hours. It was, in short, wildly popular when compared to other posts in that group. But surely someone noticed? Someone had to have fact-checked the quote. At least one person took a few seconds to verify its authenticity, right? Wrong.
“A sack fulla amens on that one!!!!” one person wrote. “#TRUMPFORPRESIDENT.” Another chimed in, “Amen,” while one lady said “that’s why we love you Mr Trump.” Still others wished him well on his way to the White House, and one even said “his” quote “resembles Thomas Jefferson” and another explained that “no one says it like trump and always proven right.” Another informed everyone that “Obama is a Muslim.” Of 22 individual commenters, not a single person realized that the quote came from Adolf Hitler. Or, of course, it is possible that none of them cared.
Whether you support Clinton or Sanders in the primary, remember — the next President will be nominating at least two Supreme Court Justices — and if Trump becomes President, they might end up being far to the Right of Antonin Scalia. Think about that.
If anyone needs motivation to vote next November, this is it. These people will be almost assuredly going to the polls.
It’s scientifically-backed that conservatives are stupid — but seeing it in action is always depressing.
