Clinton: No troops in Syria, US must welcome refugees
NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed Thursday to keep American troops out of Syria, saying in a sweeping foreign policy address she would resist sending forces to fight Islamic State militants even if there were an attack within the U.S.
Offering a detailed assessment of the conflict in Syria, the Democratic presidential front-runner said America must lead the effort to fight against IS but called on Arab nations to supply much of the military force on the ground.
During a question-and-answer session, Clinton was asked if the pressure to send in U.S. ground troops to Syria would be “unstoppable” if another terror attack were to occur in the U.S.
“It would certainly grow, but I think it would be a mistake,” she said, noting her support for sending in more U.S. special forces, empowering U.S. trainers in Iraq and the use of an air coalition in the region. “Right now we need to keep the pressure on the people on the ground and get them to change their priorities and work together.” SOURCE
Hillary Clinton does not bow to pressure. She also doesn’t support anyone in dire need of help, rescue or backup, and lest I be remiss in my duty, she is a vile old BITCH and is as close to being certifiably insane as is Barack Hussein Obama.
Hillary Clinton, if elected, would only be an extension of the Obama debacle and would take this nation all the way down with a disastrous civil war.
Speaking just before her primary rival Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was set to address the conflict, Clinton urged Americans to overcome partisan battles and rise above personal fear to combat the threat of jihadism across the globe.
Well golly-darn Hillary, we have seen YOUR brand of leadership, and yes, fear does remain. If there’s no danger why haven’t we seen your daughter, Chelsea Clinton enter the Foreign Service?
“Turning away orphans, applying a religious test, discriminating against Muslims, slamming the door on every Syrian refugee, that is just not who we are. We are better than that,” she said.
Hillary; how is it we seem to have millions, if not billions of dollars to take care of these orphans, widows and refugee males that mostly look like big models for a body-building magazine?
How is it that we can, according to Hillary Clinton, and at least some of the Democrats, take care of these people and not provide for our military veterans that are sick, injured, hungry, homeless and suffering from PTSD?
Hours later, the Republican-led House ignored a veto threat from President Barack Obama and approved a bill mandating fresh barriers for Syrian and Iraqi refugees trying to enter the country. The bill passed on a 289-13 vote with enough Democratic support to override a potential veto and came despite White House officials lobbying members of their party to oppose the proposal.
I was surprised to see that many Democrats standing in direct opposition to Barack Hussein Obama and his VETO threat if the House passed a bill to stop the importation of thousands of refugees that are fully expected to be at least infiltrated by 10% with jihadists and terrorists.
I have seen some say that these Dems were only pandering because there is an election year coming up. Well, is the GOP pandering too, for the same reasons?
I would seriously like to believe that these legislators are doing the RIGHT thing for America and the American people. I may be wrong, they may BE pandering, but I sure hope it’s about taking care of America 1st.
The United States is already thoroughly infested with the Muslim and all of the pestilence, hatred and violence we can stand. Islam is not the religion of peace and we, the American people, will be getting reminders, up close and personal reminders of that very soon.
