Crocodile tears? Hillary Clinton tweets that ‘sickening horror’ in Syria is ‘one man’s fault’ and gets reminded of her deeds

It was during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that the US led a NATO campaign against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on the side of groups seeking to overthrow him.

Via RT…

Hillary Clinton has retweeted a post by an NBC correspondent about ‘atrocities’ unleashed by Turkey’s incursion in Syria, hinting that it’s all President Donald Trump’s fault. Twitter sent her down Memory Lane.

“This sickening horror is one man’s fault,” she tweeted on Saturday night, commenting on a tweet by NBC’s Richard Engel, who said US military officials are concerned that the Turkish offensive “opens the door to BOTH ethnic cleansing of Kurds and return of ISIS/Al-Qaeda.”

Some commenters were not impressed by the ‘crocodile tears’ and ‘faux outrage,’ reminding the former secretary of state of her own role in destabilizing the Middle East.

“This entire horror in Syria wouldn’t even be happening had it not been for you, Obama, Brennan and McCain arming, funding, training and empowering Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists in a fanatical push to overthrow the legitimate Syrian government,” one wrote.

It was during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that the US led a NATO campaign against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on the side of groups seeking to overthrow him. Libya was plunged into chaos, with factions in Tripoli and Benghazi fighting each other, and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) found fertile ground in the country.

Clinton was left open to widespread criticism over her handling of the September 11 attacks on the consulate in Benghazi, which saw the murder of four Americans, including US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. She also advocated for training and equipping moderate Syrian rebels to overthrow Bashar Assad. The arms supplied to ‘moderate’ militant groups in the country ended up with IS.

Trump has been bashed by both Democrats and Republicans for what they call a betrayal of Kurdish allies after Turkey started an operation in Northern Syria against the Kurds, who Ankara considers terrorists. Turkey insists that it wants to create “safe zones” for the return of refugees.

Kurdish problem was the wests fault (including America) for decades. More over Obama was the instigator of Syria which Hillary was involved with. Add to that Benghazi and all the other attrocities stated in the article and you wonder why this hawk still speaks. Trump unfortunately tried something good without appreciating the criticality of being up to your neck in anothers mess.

Benghazi was a small pebble in a sea of Clinton/Obama infamy. Shiploads of Libyan weapons to supply thinly disguised ISIS to occupy Damascus. How people like Clinton can live with themselves, only an expert on psychopathy would know. Anyway, I remember when Saddam was allowed to fly helicopters after the first gulf war and proceeded to slaughter Kurds fleeing through the mountains, again – after the US urged them to rebel. Nothing more than cannon fodder for US ‘realpolitik’. Murad Gazdiev forgot that one on his list. Anyway, they didn’t help us at Normandy, so why should I care? Throw… Read more »

I hope that last line is a joke. The kurds are victim of hubris and the want of a home. Kurds like palestinians are native to the lands they occupy yet imperialism, manifest destiny and globalism have used them as a convenient tool to sow the seeds of discontent (this time as the good guys while palestinians are the would be bad guys). Look at the maps of the Middle East before WW1, before WW2 and the map from 1950 onwards.

True. Humour is taboo these days so it’s rare to recognise when it comes so covertly (not to mention sarcasm never really worked in print). Saying all that Syria has appeared to have gotten off their backsides and are sending troops north to counter Turkey. The Kurds appear to be helping them.

The Kurds have finally realized that they were “hoodwinked” and used by the CIA….and that Assad, whom they were duped against is really the good guy. The main sewer stream fake media across the “west”, still running interference for their “masters”, would have everyone believe otherwise.

If Clinton runs/is allowed to run it is a mockery of our “Democracy” and is the germination of chaos/revolution.
These are truly frightening times……

Disagree. It would be democratic to let her run…and lose. Nothing better than beating them at their own game.

Well, she aided and abetted their run (and ruin with their nazi runes) of Ukraine, so you just inadvertently made the argument that she’s a shoe-in.

Read comments of her supporters and it’s clear there’s a very dangerous kool-aid program being used to make people obedient zombies. Scary how effective her and her supporters filters seem to block facts and evidence with 100% effectiveness. Maybe they all have brain Implants that erase incoming horror on the quantum level?

To be honest I think they know that Biden is now toast and they are trying to resurrect an obscene caricature and put lipstick on a pig .

Oh, I can attest to Americans being zombified, on both the left and the right. I’ve even started wearing garlic necklaces. I refuse to buy my garlic at Whole Foods though. Those Bezos zombies scare the hell out of me.

Why refer to Lybia?
Clinton was advocating war in Syria:

Because Libya was a success (by Hillary’s measure). Syria proved wiser and in turn a failure by Hillary’s standard of overthrow and perpetual chaos.

Clinton shipped shiploads of Libyan arms to Syrian jihadis to kickstart the war, that’s why.

I am shocked to hear that they tried poor Tokyo Rose and not guilty-as-sin Hilary Clinton and her (and her daughter’s) friend, Ghislaine Maxwell.
I know the cynical view is that there is one law for the poor and another for the rich, but they never told us there was no law at all for the rich.
