Clinton defends
US support for
Arab Spring nations

Agence France Presse, by Jo Biddle

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/12/2012 5:14:59 PM

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Friday defended US support for Arab Spring nations as "a strategic necessity," vowing never to retreat amid a firestorm over the attack on a US mission in Libya. "We will not return to the false choice between freedom and stability. And we will not pull back our support for emerging democracies when the going gets rough," Clinton told a US think tank. "That would be a costly strategic mistake that would, I believe, undermine both our interests and our values."

Comments:
What the hell is this woman talking about? Greasing the skids for the Muslim Brotherhood (The 0bama/Clinton policy) a/k/a the front for radical islam has WHAT to do with democracy?
These people need to go - post haste.

Emerging democracies?

Look again, twit. "Democracy" is not what's emerging. Try "festering breeding ground for despotic muslim extremism", with a thin veneer of elections smeared over them to fool the useful idiots in the west. Ask the Christian minorities fleeing from their burning homes and stores in Egypt and Syria how much they think their vote will count for in an "Arab Spring Democracy".

No money to countries governed by Islam.

Clinton frames the question incorrectly as a false choice between freedom and stability. No, the choice is between friend and enemy.

Does this somehow explain 4 weeks of spin and lies from Obama about the deadly Al Qaeda terrorist connected assault on our consulate in Benghazi?
Or is this just more smokescreen?

Someone has to take the blame.

Not only Libya but, take a peek at Syria. Latest reports of Al Qaeda fighting along side of the "rebels". It's a civil war. Assad is bad but the Mideast is in a state of entropy. Is Al Qaeda now an ally we are supporting against Assad? What a mess.

#1 - Couldn't have said it better. The Hillbag (in all her Mao tunic glory) is helping to engineer the spread of islamofacism. She is an enabler of an intolerant, totalitarian, brutally violent dictatorship devoid of all decent human rights called a caliphate that is intent on ultimately taking over the world. If anybody thinks that's crazy then look it up - it is their stated intent and has been for 1400 years. It's all about conquest and domination through any means possible. The world has not yet seen the horrors that this "culture" has in store for us should they get their way and this (w)itch is all for it!

Not exactly. FWIW, rumours swirl in the Blogosphere, that the meaning of the word 'support' is:
sending guns which may have gotten to Al-Q types in Libya, in a fast and furious fashion.
Reportedly, these are the weapons that--allegedly-- Amb Stevens was set up by Herself to retrieve from the famously restless natives, before she would find herself in her own custom-made F&F scandal....weapons purportedly used to kill him.
Recently, these suspicions are said to be at the back of her decisions to duck and cover, whilst Bubba lawyers up.

Therefore, under these suppositions, it would appear that the meaning of the word 'democracy' is limited to:
use of our courts and Constitution to protect Herself from liability.

It’s not an early April Fool’s joke -- Business Insider has hired disgraced former NYC Congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner to write a weekly political column, starting Friday. Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.

While I applaud Lean In’s recent launch of their Ban Bossy campaign – some like it, some don’t – I encourage them to do more.(snip)And if we’re “banning” words with this sort of double standard, then the word “articulate” comes to mind. “Articulate” doesn’t have the same negative connotations as “bossy.” But we’re all familiar with the scenario in which someone comments in surprise at how “professional” or “well-spoken” a new black co-worker comes across, or how “articulate” an African-American presidential candidate might be – as then-Sen.

Early NASA diapers forced astronauts to

When NASA astronauts were suiting up to go to space in the 1960s, they had to make a big decision before they explored the world above us: How large of a man are you? Getting it wrong could damage the mission. According to a former NASA life support system expert who helped construct space diapers, otherwise known as Maximum Absorbency Garment systems, each astronaut in the Gemini and Apollo programs had to wear a condom-type sheath with a hole at the end for urination inside their suits. In an interview on the Science Channel´s Moon Machines documentary series about early space travel, engineer

New clever species of praying

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue. In Kenya, we all know the big problem is corruption, but we are addressing virtually everything else but corruption. And so in America, our cousin President Obama dances around serious issues like the typical Kenyan he is. When Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Obama thundered with indignation and a fulsome, righteous — and justified — anger. The people of Georgia thought he would follow through on his fiery words with real action to set their country free of Russia’s torment, but wapi! With Cousin Barry, as with

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has dodged some version of the question countless times before, but that didn´t stop a young woman from asking - and laying on a guilt trip, to boot. "Mrs. Clinton, if you don´t represent women in politics in America as future president, who will?" she asked during a Saturday meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative University in Tempe, Ariz., according to the Wall Street Journal. Talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, who was presiding over the discussion, jumped in: "To add to that, when you do run for president will you use the old Clinton campaign lawn signs?" Mrs.

"We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine," he said in an interview with KNSD in San Diego. "What we are going to do is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we´ve got a strong international coalition that sends a clear message, which is that Ukraine should decide their destiny."

The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,
