Hillary Clinton, the wanna be President, has a new take on what constitutes effective foreign policy. This one is even better than her RESET button for Russia and MUCH better than her “What Difference Does It Make” stance on Benghazi. It seems that Hillary’s newest idea of SMART foreign policy is that we should spend time empathizing with our enemies.
Yes, you read that correctly. Rather than regarding our enemies as exactly that, ENEMIES, Hillary tells us that women need to push the US to conduct therapy sessions with them. Behold:
According to Fox News:
Hillary Clinton raised some eyebrows when she said this week that America must “empathize” with its enemies, calling for the United States to exercise “smart power.”
“This is what we call smart power,” Clinton said at Georgetown on Wednesday.
“Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.”
Empathy huh? Then I guess she was empathizing with those in Libya who attacked and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and the other brave Americans who died defending themselves and their country. I mean she sure as hell didn’t show any empathy when called in front of Congress to answer questions about the events at Benghazi. In fact, she made it clear she didn’t like being questioned about the wrong-headedness of the video story sparking the riots that killed those great Americans.
“What Difference Does It Make?” A great deal of difference as a matter of fact.
If Hillary as President of the United States wants to run this “new” kind of diplomacy, who are we supposed to have joint therapy sessions with? Should we empathize with Iran as they continue to build their nuclear program, rig elections and murder gays ? How about ISIS? Wouldn’t it be just lovely to hold hands and sit in a kumbaya circle with insanely evil terrorists who take such great joy in raping, murdering, and beheading their enemies? Boy I tell you, those therapy sessions will certainly change the prospects for peace.
Quite frankly, Hillary’s idea of SMART power is just as horrendous as her country music video, and that’s saying a lot. Hillary, you have obviously forgotten the many many lessons of history, even recent history, if you even THINK its possible to bend over backwards empathizing with enemies of the US in the belief they will do the same. Because they won’t. They will pay lip service to this idiotic idea of foreign policy of yours and will do everything possible in the background to undermine, attack, and destroy this great country of ours.
Hillary, the fact is, during your tenure as Secretary of State you had exactly ZERO major agreements or treaties put into place. The fact is, your RESET button continues to be a dud. Take my womanly advice Hillary; stay on the lecture circuit and give up the idea of running for President. At the very least the lecture circuit pays you $300,000 a pop, and you can say any laughably dumb thing you want. Plus, keeping you on the money train and out of the White House will ensure that you won’t be enacting a foreign policy of SMART power therapy sessions that would do only one thing, put this country into a dangerously vulnerable position.
