Sanders equates Clinton with Trump on foreign policy

Hillary Clinton has bathed in accolades from Democrats for her scathing speech against Trump’s foreign policy credentials. But in an interview aired Sunday, her rival for the Democratic nomination Bernie Sanders suggested that Clinton’s own foreign policy judgment raises similar concerns.
...



“I think that her support for the war in Iraq was not just an aberration,” he said. “I think that her willingness to push President Obama to overthrow [Libya's Muammar] Qadhafi and lead to the kind of instability we’re seeing now in Libya, not inconsistent with her views on Syria, where she wants a no-fly zone.”

“Bush’s era, Clinton’s era has caused us incalculable harm,” he added.

there for not graciously excepting the gift of freedom.

She just wants to put sanctions on the governments and force them to trade oil for medicine and food.

I'll wait.

Of course, it's only brown people harmed by Hillary's disastrous war mongering. Ironic name, btw.

8. There is a real racism that enables that warlike aggressive foreign policy posture.

A good portion of liberals have all but turned their backs on the middle east and latin America. When you write off hundreds of thousands of dead as a simple "mistake", you are certainly engaging in a certain type of racism and western privilege.

10. Sanders has guts to be going after Clinton's pro-war record this hard, this late in the game.

It tells me he's an honest broker. He's not "guiding in" his followers in order to hand them over to Hillary. He's not playing the usual game.
