      From the article:

      A Hillary Clinton memo that Wikileaks made public in 2016 has not gotten the attention it deserves.

      It takes us back to 2012 and the early phase of the Syrian war.

      At that point, it was largely an internal affair, although Saudi arms shipments were playing a greater and greater role in bolstering rebel forces. But once the Obama administration decided in favor of intervention, the conflict was quickly internationalized as thousands of holy warriors flooded in from as far away as western China.

      The 1,200-word memo by then-Secretary of State Clinton begins with the subject of Iran, an important patron of Syria.

      She dismisses any notion that nuclear talks will stop Iran “from improving the crucial part of any nuclear weapons program—the capability to enrich uranium.” If it does get the bomb, it goes on, Israel will suffer a strategic setback since it will no longer be able to “respond to provocations with conventional military strikes on Syria and Lebanon, as it can today.” Denied the ability to bomb at will, Israel might leave off secondary targets and strike at the main enemy instead.

      So was Hillary afraid that someone else (Israel) would start a middle eastern war, or that someone else (Israel) would drop a nuke? (that they weren’t supposed to have) That might lead to WW3 (That’s her prerogative – or Theresa May’s)

      remember, Clinton says that the main lessons of Iraq and Libya are certain steps to avoid, not to avoid going in the first place: she had the intel stovepipe ready

      the neocons have always been the more dangerous group than anyone with a tiki torch: they’re the ones in government, they’re the ones persisting beyond any President and even able to oust them, they’re the ones who believe that the public has no right to know what wars they’re about to be sent into, they see the public as the vanguard of the enemy (balking at war, letting the enemy know whatever the public knows), they’re the ones who say the threat of WWIII is just a scare tactic spread by Russkie assets in the media

      Thinking about which Clinton is worse, Bill or Hillary? Bill was a shameless huckster and morally bankrupt, but Hillary is just forking evil. I say Hillary!

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
