“Iraq has in many ways been a leader in demonstrating to believe and to see that democracy delivers. Is your life better or not? Do your children have a better opportunity or not? And this is clearly not a job for government alone. It is clearly an important partnership that has to be forged. Businesses like those represented here at this table create jobs, provide livelihoods, increase standards of living, give hope to individuals.. and what government should do, whether it’s in the United States or in Iraq is to be a good partner… Iraq is a business opportunity…” Hillary Clinton, Business Forum Promoting Commercial Opportunities in Iraq, 2011
I have often said that Bernie Sanders is doing us no service by simply reminding people Hillary Clinton voted for the Iraq War in 2002.
What she really did was stand up in the senate and regurgitate the lies of Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld and Rice, line for line, word for word, in a speech she gave in support of their illegal war of aggression. She talked about WMDs, chemical weapons, biological weapons and even nuclear weapons. She talked about al Qaeda in Iraq which didn’t exist. None of it did and there were MANY out there who KNEW none of that was true (including members of Bush’s administration… like Colin Powell for example)
She CERTAINLY knew it was all a lie as she spewed the neocon talking points like she was getting paid for it.
And what’s worse is you KNOW this woman was working diligently behind the scenes twisting the arms of every Democratic senator to make them vote for the illegal war of aggression and without their support, without her cheer-leading the cause, IT NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.
She “voted” for it Bernie?!? She MADE it.
The first video features one (ONE) of those speeches she gave on the floor of the senate. It also features her laughing about the “Hard Choices” she had to make which resulted in the Iraq War of Aggression and juxtaposes images of all the suffering she caused as a result of it.
Then, in order to expose her even more, the short video shows her at a the Business Forum Promoting Commercial Opportunities in Iraq, at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., on June 3, 2011. This is where she gleefully says Iraq is a budding business opportunity.
This other video, from the State Department, shows a Q&A session she held with “leading businesses” of America who were all excited to start exploiting the country as best they could, and Hillary and her Deputy Sec. were holding court with them, divying up the loot from the broken nation.
Video from the State Department meeting in 2011. This is amazing. Pure fascist neoliberal agenda laid out right there for you to see and hear for yourselves. Business is the business of our embassies and State Department assets in Iraq and nothing else. She talks about how USAID, Treasury, the Department of Agriculture and all other branches of government are going to dedicate themselves to helping Big Business make Big Bucks in the wasteland that her vote helped create in 2002.
She talks about how Iraqis are the best educated work-force in the Middle East. That’s because we destroyed Iraq because Saddam used the oil revenues in order to provide the people of Iraq universal healthcare and free education. That’s why the “resource” her friend talks about, the “human resource”, is so well educated. Wont be that way for long, so they better jump on that cheap well-educated labor just as fast as they can.
There she was, after lying in congress about WMDs and al Qaeda in Iraq, explaining to Big Business how the whole of the Obama administration was there to serve their needs in the exploitation of the nation she helped decimate. That is the definition of fascism folks.
If after all of this, you vote for this neocon fascist, this lying neocon fascist, then you are a fascist yourself. Just stop pretending and put a Dick Cheney sticker on your bumper. There are no more excuses. This is what she is and if you support her, it’s what you are.
