Question in a safe forum:

Does anyone know whether AIPAC is contributing
to HRC and if so why?
Seems to me that that group should be happy
to give support to a first jewish candidate for
the US presidency. The fact that it has been
reported that HRC sent a "love letter" to Bibi
makes me wonder.

I really liked this kind of "debate", because

Rachel asked the more important questions than
what we find on the general debates.

However, no question about the TPP, but I think
MSNBC would not allow for it.

Jus read in the Guardian

that the US refused the Canadian oil company's request
to postpone the decision of the pipeline.

Sorry, I don't know how to bring it here, but it is very
interesting, imo.

Has it occurred to you that are at war?

No,not our silly word wars here.

The whole ME is blowing up, and whoever is elected
to the WH may have a lot to say about it. I still think
that Bernie is the candidate with the least interest in
war, even though he agrees with Obama's plan to keep
more troops in Afgsn.
All of the repugs will keep the wars not only going, but
will intensify them.
HRC's plans for Libya were a disaster, and she proposed
a No-Fly zone for Syria even though Putin's planes soar
right over there. She also was in favor of supplying the
Western Ukraine with weapons, and now approves of
boots on the ground in Syria.
This bothers me. Do all presidents believe in the
American Empire? Or is it possible that the MIC and
CIA have so much power that no president can refuse
their wishes? I would assume that HRC would know, if
that were the case, which may explain her more
aggressive attitude.

My reason for asking this is that I really believe that
Obama wanted the US out of wars, yet could not do
it. Your opinions, please.
