Secret Tapes, Muammar Gaddafi, Chickenhawks and Neoliberalism (Global US-Corporate Domination)



(Exclusive: Secret Tapes Undermine Hillary Clinton on Libyan War)

Hillary is a war hawk, of course, and she's proven herself to be a serious amateur on issues relating to whether or not to place troops in harm's way time and again.


Some of you who do not have selective amnesia may recall that she based her vote in favor of the Iraq War on Bush Jr.'s word alone and didn't bother to investigate the merits of his proposal to go to war independently.

As a Senator from the great state of New York, I would suggest this kind of attention to detail is at the heart of her job duties as a congresswoman. You don't agree to send in troops, knowing that some are going to get hurt and die, based on a president's word.

This was a betrayal of the system of checks and balances that our forefathers set up when our nation was founded, supposedly to protect us from power becoming too concentrated in the hands of a single person or particular branch of government, to protect us from tyranny. That's the official narrative anyway.

What she did to Gaddafi was (and still is) a tragedy. Despite his roughian appearance and nature, Gaddafi was doing some good things for his people.

He was investing in them but being consistently lied about in the Western media, which overwhelmingly serves as heavily biased megaphones for Western governments.

I'm going out on a limb in saying that the fact that he was planning on implementing the use of a different kind of currency, other than the dollar (and deal us out of the equation), was enough to get him killed, indirectly, through the actions of Hillary Clinton.

Like the arrogant, conceited, coward she is, she used his rough appearance and the fact that he had a penis to have him killed. He was, by far, a more honest leader and a better person than Clinton, a man who, despite having psychopathic traits, had enough compassion in his heart to perform good works for the benefit of his people.

He was a rebel with a noble cause and a mission who was painted out to be a madman because his outward appearance lent itself to being manipulated that way by American psychopaths in Gucci suits.

It all goes back to the American Exceptionalist Myth in which our moral and racial superiority are givens. The American people have been indoctrinated into a philosophy which has been retooled to fit the needs of our ruling elites several times throughout our nation's history, a self-touted overly high regard for ourselves at the relative expense of the rest of the world.

After all, you can't get a people to do the bidding of its elites without filling their heads with lies about how above average, righteous, and noble they are in everything they ("we") undertake. And, of course, it goes without saying that the same applies to whatever our ruling class undertakes in our names.

Nothing could be more arrogant than the belief that, somehow, we're the world's indispensable nation when all history proves that there are none. Rome, Athens, Imperial Japan, the Persian Empire, and the Nazi Reich all felt the same about themselves as we feel about ourselves, and they all met the same fate that we will unless our course is radically altered to avert catastrophe, unless we are willing to shed the extra weight that Empire is placing on us all.


Hillary Clinton had Gaddafi executed, murdered by his own people for his plans to bypass us and follow a path other than the one which was dictated to him by the government of the United States of America and its corporate overlords.

He was doing something revolutionary, almost unheard of for his political counterparts, here, in the US, which was to have the best interests of his own citizenry in mind and follow through with his intentions to help them, actions that, ultimately, cost him his life.

We must bear in mind, too, that Libya is the world's fifth largest producer of oil, a fact that serves as a virtual death sentence and a tragic reminder for any Libyans who, like Gaddafi, might be tempted to defy US demands to fall in line with our use of the mafiosi principle, a guiding principle which has been the foundation for our relationships with foreign nations since the end of World War II.




Gadaffi wasn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but he cared enough about his own people to look out for them. This can't be said by most American leaders in this day and age.

If you haven't served in the military, have profound respect for those who have has been my position since I was a young man. This is why my current state of disillusionment is so high.

These wars are not necessary. They are wars of choice. The decision to send men and women into combat should not be taken lightly and only reached as a last resort when a country is in imminent danger of attack.

Unfortunately, for Americans and the global community, Hillary Clinton's misguided neoliberalism, which is founded in a ruthless quest for global corporate domination, her egoisms, vanity and conceit, have all led to a number of cavalier, chickenhawk decisions in the past (and probably will again in the near future) which will forever live in infamy.
