Forget those polls and public opinion, says chief spokesperson for the War Pigs branch of the Democratic Party Bill Clinton. Even more than Obama, Bill and Hillary never saw a potential war they didn’t want to provoke, inflame, or join. That includes Syria.
Clinton says Obama would be a “total fool” if he paid attention to polls and then offered convoluted, nonsensical advice, “Okay, see what a big mess it is? Stay out! I think that’s a big mistake. Sometimes it’s just best to get caught trying, as long as you don’t overcommit — like, as long as you don’t make an improvident commitment.”
Right. We should charge into Syria guns blazing intent on overthrowing Assad (and thus installing Jihadists) but be mindful we don’t, y’know, get too involved else things get messy. Inquiring minds want to know how you have a war with American boots on foreign land fighting a seasoned well-trained army without a whole lot of collateral damage and dead US soldiers.
But then, the Clintons have no skin in the game. Chelsea sure isn’t going over there. (It is of course completely possible that Obama asked Clinton to beat war drums for him.)
