Hillary Clinton: U.S. is at "war" against "radical jihadist" groups


"Hillary Clinton said she views the battle against terrorism as a “war” against “radical jihadist” groups, in the aftermath of a Bastille Day attack in Nice, France.
In her first interview in the past eight years on Fox News’s O’Reilly Factor program, Clinton also called for an intelligence surge between the U.S. and its closest allies and “strong, tough diplomacy.”
“We've got to do more to understand that this is a war against these terrorist groups, the radical jihadist groups,” Clinton told O’Reilly.
Clinton responded after an attack that killed more than 80 people Thursday night after a truck filled with grenades and weapons plowed through throngs of people in the resort town.

“As we take territory back from ISIS forces they will try to engage in other terrorist attacks,” said Clinton.
She also called in to CNN with the same message."

1. She is absolutely right.

I'm glad to hear Hillary using strong, unambiguous language regarding these terrorist groups. These people cannot be reasoned with - diplomacy is not an option.

3. You want somebody that would fight ISIS in a way that somebody makes lots of money? Elect Trump.

 

You want somebody that will rip out the heart and soul of ISIS and other terrorist groups in the most effective wand quickest way? Elect Hillary Clinton. When she is calling the shots, things will get nasty very quickly for with ISIS and other groups.
