Introduction and Notes

"Whatever it takes" is a phrase used commonly by politicians.  In this case, it is taken from one of Hillary Clinton's close friends, who used it to characterize what Clinton would do to get a Democrat into the White House.  This report, however, looks at what Clinton is willing to do or support in pursuit of strategic, policy, and other goals, and illustrates that she is quick to capitalize on the US power advantage and apply the standard of "whatever it takes".

This is a record of Hillary Clinton’s support for wars of aggression and other acts of extremism. 

In anticipation of the 2016 election, a principal reason for creating this record is to provide a clear illustration of what is put forth as the supposed "less evil" of the two viable choices in the US system, and examine the consequences this lack of choice has had on the world.

TIME magazine is known as a staple of support and cover for US international criminality.  The famous investigative journalist Carl Bernstein documents that the US government has no external "need to manipulate Time magazine, for example, because there are Agency [CIA] people at the management level."  

However, even TIME has balked at Hillary Clinton's record, reporting that she will almost certainly be a more extreme militant than any Republican opponent.   

At the end of the year in which Clinton left her position as Secretary of State (2013), the Obama regime's USA was voted, in a Win/Gallup poll of 65 countries around the world, as the single greatest threat to world peace, with the runner-up (Pakistan, an Islamic fundamentalist US ally) receiving three times fewer votes, and Russia receiving twelve times fewer votes:



This was largely due to multiple, illegal US attacks that were co-schemed and advocated by Hillary Clinton, and ultimately demanded and perpetrated by Barack Obama.

The record is intended to inform current and potential Clinton supporters who favor international law and peace, but may not have deeply researched the candidate, about what they are actually supporting.  While one may still feel trapped into casting a vote for Clinton to avoid a potential worse fate, her record should prompt us to work towards a reality in which we are not limited to choosing between two evils. 

While "respected conservative political commentator Norman Ornstein" writes in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences journal that the Republican Party is a "radical insurgency – ideologically extreme, scornful of facts and compromise", historian Roger Morris (PhD in government, Harvard), in his unparalleled, best-selling examination of the Clintons and their sleazy deeds along their rise to power, finds that the Democratic Party, although the "lesser of evils", is "equally bereft, corrupt, and unable or unwilling to face itself." (468-9)

Clinton supporters unwilling to address this record will reaffirm his point.
