Just What is a Moderate Rebel?
Many people who read my posts have been H. Clinton supporters in the past and perhaps still are. She is the first strong woman candidate for president who is able to command attention beyond her gender. I'm looking past that gender and at the substance of her remarks in the post from the Guardian newspaper where she is making a foreign tour to promote her book, a mere smokescreen for shoring up her foreign policy image in Europe.
clip "I'm not aware of the specifics about any proposal to the British government but like our government I knew there was debate because I was advocating for trying to vet, train and arm Syrian moderates," Clinton said.
Madame Secretary--Just what is the maximum kill level to qualify as a moderate rebel and to avoid moving up to the next level of radical moderate? Is there a proficiency test? Is there a logbook maintained of kills?
Since this is the Independence Day weekend in the USA is it a good time to ask would all-but-named candidate Clinton care to describe the Colonial rebels as moderate or radical in their actions towards George III? Doesn't it really matter who does the defining if one is the target of the rebellion or if one is the supplier of arms for those who are being defined? This is the definition of one who wants to overthrow a government yet stand aloof by appearing moderate. Make no mistake, H. Clinton is a war hawk first and last. She has to prove she carries a strap-on underneath that pantsuit and as much a man is with XY chromosomes.
The Democratic Party, both the Oklahoma and national versions, have been running on the fumes puffed from FDR's famous cigars, now completely dissipated 69 years after his death.
