Hillary Clinton criticises Barack Obama's policy on Syria and Israel

Distancing herself from President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, potential 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in an interview published on Sunday that the US decision not to intervene early in the Syrian civil war was a “failure”.

Republican critics and others have faulted Obama for doing too little to support Syrians who rose up against President Bashar al-Assad. Syria has been torn apart by a civil war for three years, with Assad staying in power and ...

Oh Hillary...only a year or so ago ya'll were *seemingly* one big happy family--you bit your lip, swallowed your pride with an eye on 2016 and played your consolation prize as secretary of state as best you could.

But alas, campaigning season is upon us, and like the seasoned political veteran that you are, to hell with the rank and file, friendships or alliances that you no longer deem useful--the vampire in you will suck dry anyone who stands in your way and/or does not behoove your goal of being President of the United States.

This is the sad state of our political system and to a larger extent, our lack of evolution (another story for another time). Anyone who wants to be president as badly as you do has relinquished all honesty, authenticity and principle.

And this folks, is someone that should be truly feared...

Anyone who thinks Hillary is qualified to be President, probably voted for Obama too.

She is not qualified to be president. But Americans will probably give her a shot at it. Lord knows the Republicans haven't got a chance, although I did like Rubio's recent comment on his apprehension with dealing with Iran.

I was one of those who thought she was too, until her recent posture and statements regarding her approach to Mid-East problems and her war mongering stand in favor of the Israelis, as if they hadn't murdered enough Palestinians!!

Now, I would NOT vote for her...she showed political immaturity, coldness, on the top of being calculative and unscrupulous. She was disingenuous when she criticized Obama's foreign policy's, since she had been the architect of most of them! She is a hypocrite, who would readily sale herself to the highest bidder!!!

Don't ever be surprised or object to US support for Israel. To be outraged at it is utter stupidity. Given the long relationship that America has with Jews culturally socially, music film, literature, the very socio-cultural heartbeat of America has been driven by Jews.

On the 4th of July every year Nathan's holds the hot dog eating contest. Which is considered to be an ALL-American tradition.

Nathan's is Jewish, Ali! Do you seriously expect the US to EVER side with Palestinians?

Name one Arab who has contributed to any part of America. Besides Jamie Farr "Corporal Klinger" from MASH.

What you are saying, tantamount, in principle, to American support for the Nazis, in WWII, despite knowing that they were genocidal maniacs, but because America has always had great relations with Germany and German people.

You have to draw the line somewhere, and it better be on the "RIGHT" between the right and wrong...or you are deserted and stand alone, when the whole world is moving the other way.

And that, despite the fact that one shouldn't be too exited or crazy about Hamas, the IRI incarnates and bretheren, for what they are doing...But what other alternative(s) do they have, when nothing have been put forward and America, the "mediator" enters the fray with dirty hands!

47 years of humiliating occupation and 10 years of siege is intolerable and murderous...It can cause or create frustrations that, as we have witnessed, the erupts periodically, and like a volcano! Alas, the BEST way to deal with this problem is for the apartheid regime to change direction, and eradicate the cause!

PS: Although, Nathan's hot dog is not too bad. But Katz's, another Jewish restaurant/deli establishment that is more than 120 years old, pastrami, sandwiched between two homemade slices of rye bread is out of this world!

She was a warmongering Republican before she met Bill Clinton, although Democracts proved not to be any better when it comes to Genocidal Jewish regime of Israel.

She didn't need to open her mouth for anyone to know her position on Israel. She needs their votes in NY and Florida and also their money to win the 2016 election. Her position is not not any different from McCain's.

And let's not forget that she was one of the influential architects on both! Hypocrisy is mother's milk of politics!

This clearly indicates that she will run for president, in need of money from Jewish lobbies, i.e. AIPAC and others, and she adheres to no human principles or scruples. like the rest!

I can't forget or forgive Clinton's threat to 'obliterate Iran' during her presidential campaign before.

She should be obliterated.

More important than her, the ruling criminal mullahs in Iran should be obliterated.

Yes, shah was by people of IRAN. Just take a look at high number of shah's related approval comments on this site.

She is really Sarah Palin in a different outfit, with more money behind her, of course.
Sarah Palin is totally dumb, Hillary is a total Puppet, who would say anything at any time to please her Masters.
But they both have one thing in common, they are both total frauds.
The sad part is the Political System in this Country is totally broken and controlled by big money, AIPAC and Military Industrial Complex. No one can get anywhere in Politics here unless they kiss their asses, 100%.

She is a consummate politician! And that makes her an unscrupulous psychopath, who would do and say anything so long as it benefits her!

Anything for $$$ and votes. And I'm not talking about people's vote. The selected ones' vote.

Sad Sad Sad!

She is unscrupulous and will compromise anything/everything for the sake of securing a future presidential election. Her blind allegiance for Netanyahu in the midst of such atrocities is evidence of this. At a point in history where the international community is waking up and realizing that Israel is engaging in apartheid and genocide, she chooses to publicly condone his actions rather than condemn the brutality.

Thanks for the comment. It's really amazing to see the extent to which the public discourse re: Israel has shifted (accelerated by Israel's latest military massacre in Gaza)--I think that it is evident to all of us that more people than ever are openly talking about their feelings and criticizing Israel. Recent surveys show that there is a negative shift in Millennials’ attitude towards Israel. In the future, these young Americans will have a greater say in the politics of the country--so unless Israel commits to doing the right thing (it's a long list), public sympathy for Israel, and the US policy towards her that follows, will slowly but surely be less supportive.

Going back to your comment re: Hillary, I would say that her "blind allegiance" is a "calculated allegiance". Rest assured that if a tipping point of public opinion (votes and $) was firmly against Israel, she would surely jump off the pro-Israeli bandwagon and champion herself as a steadfast advocate of Palestinian rights. Imagine that...

You are absolutely right, Saïd Amin on all of your points. And yes, "calculated allegiance" is better description.

I love the picture, btw. =)

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

She say's "I think that democratic nations have demonstrably better values in a conflict position"

Translation: Gee I really want to be the President of this Democratic System and I know those who can show beyond a shadow of a doubt they believe in the Democratic System are the only ones with any chance of being elected. So I will say anything to support democratic systems, especially when it contradicts reality and history. The USA has better values based on its results in Libya, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. The one thing these 4 victims of US Criminal System have is they are all losing hundreds of innocent people a week and are victims of US instigated organized, armed and funded Political Turmoil and Extremist Armed Violence.

RIDDAM beh Democratic Systems Values, to support and impose mass murder and extremists and hypocritically act to deny this end result you are producing, pretending all of this is just an ACCIDENT. You Hillary show you are worthy of the Leadership of a Democratic Systems and it is no compliment to be among the most vile, genocidal, tyrant, despots and dictators of all time.

The Greatest Violators of Human Rights For Money = Democratic Systems.

Pres. Obama has a master plan, somehow much different than most any president...
something he is well entitled to, and could turn out as "a great legacy for this Presidency" when he achieves it. it seems his agenda is to have "much-less influence" in the worlds day-to-day politics, so in return enables much-greater Savings for America -- something Americans really need.... i.e: what W. Europe been implementing too.

but, that alone, does not mean the rest of involved parties in here (Democrat & Republic) in this well-democratic country would follow or even agree (in great deal) with Pres' agenda!

Hillary is just one of them. she see's it that disengagement of America would be far-less beneficial. thats is just how she is .... and in this equation, some support for Israel is key factor.
Israel has a unique position in the entire mid-east... it is well involved with America in Hi-tech trade, Stock-mkt financials, Intellectual Property Trademarks & most importantly a "well maintained structure-system (Columns) for collecting Reliable Intelligence on their 2-folds of neighbors. which includes "our dear Country" & non-Dear-Gov of Iran or IRI.

Israel is align also with What Traditional America Believes to work with and have a Win-Win benefits from -- No doubt about Israel being a full democratic country -- just as UK, India & etc are ...
so relying in that well-unique country of Israel, is an agenda that seems as scarce-necessity -- which also has 3-large ports for America to operate its Aircraft Carries in case of Emergency-calls to rescue friendly Regimes from militant Jihadis Coup: as Jordan, Saudi, Egypt, Kuwait, Iraq, UAE, and even Turkey.

now, do we expect, that a Group that America & most Europe has called a Terror group of Hamas, which as part of its title, is supposed to "first terrorize" its own citizens in Gaza be on the America's mind ... not forgetting the Hamas is the finger-tips of Iran's Gov. practicing what IRI would end up doing "if given chance" to its own citizens ... lets Not Forget that Hamas been shooting-rockets from residential zone, houses, etc ... and Not shooting from Sandy Beach fronts near the water !
