Hillary Clinton is a war hawk. Is this what we need?
Hillary Clinton advocates American aggression against nations whose people have not attacked us.
She supports CIA destabilization tactics, unprovoked attacks, invasions, illegal wars, occupations, exploitation and overt imperialism
“War is essentially an evil thing. Its consequences are not confined to the belligerent states alone, but affect the whole world. To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”
– Justice Robert Jackson, Nuremberg Tribunal
The ruling means that the people who initiate or support a war of aggression are guilty of committing every evil (death, maiming, displacement, human rights violations, etc.) that occurs as a result of the war and destabilization caused by the war.
Hillary Clinton has, as a high official in the US government or as First Lady, supported numerous acts of avoidable and unnecessary aggression around the world.

Hillary has “experience” which has cost millions of lives and trillions of dollars in wasted resources.
The Pentagon tried to stop her – unfortunately, to no avail
What’s happening in Libya today is a crime: murder, rape, looting, chaos, a war of all against all. The perpetrator, the one key person who made all this possible, is a well known personage in American politics, a former Secretary of State and the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.
What Hillary Clinton did to Libya is a crime on a scale rivaled only by the crimes of the Bush administration in Iraq – and there is a definite parallel in the methodology of the criminals.
Libya has been pretty much off the public’s radar screen ever since the US intervention that led to Muammar Qaddafi’s downfall – and the ugly aftermath in which the US ambassador was murdered by the very people Washington was intent on “liberating.” Now the aftermath is getting even uglier.
