A prominent economics professor and political thinker has penned an article in which he calls Clinton a “war candidate” in the pocket of the military industrial complex.

Jeffrey Sachs, a world-renowned professor of economics, has authored a column in which he attacks presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton for her ties to the military industrial complex. Sachs, a senior UN advisor, bestselling author, and syndicated columnist, said Clinton’s decisions as Senator and as Secretary of State have put the US in danger and led to an unending state of conflict.

“The idea that she is bad on the corporate issues but good on national security has it wrong,” Sachs writes. “Her so-called foreign policy "experience" has been to support every war demanded by the US deep security state run by the military and the CIA.”

Sachs goes back to the administration of Bill Clinton, noting that the Clintons both have accepted money from both Wall Street and weapons contractors who have an interest in the US taking an active role in conflict around the world.

“Just as the last Clinton presidency set the stage for financial collapse, it also set the stage for unending war. On October 31, 1998 President Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act that made it official US policy to support ‘regime change" in Iraq,” Sachs explains.

Sachs points out that, later in 2003, Hillary voted for war with Iraq in the US Senate, a war which many now criticize for having destabilized the region and helping push the US to financial collapse. 

Going forward in time, Sachs calls Clinton’s “record as Secretary of State is among the most militaristic, and disastrous, of modern US history.”

“Hilary was a staunch defender of the military-industrial-intelligence complex at every turn, helping to spread the Iraq mayhem over a swath of violence that now stretches from Mali to Afghanistan. Two disasters loom largest: Libya and Syria.”

Sachs places a lot of blame on Clinton for the crisis in Syria. 

“Perhaps the crowning disaster of this long list of disasters has been Hillary's relentless promotion of CIA-led regime change in Syria,” he writes. “Once again Hillary bought into the CIA propaganda that regime change to remove Bashir al-Assad would be quick, costless, and surely successful.”

He also charges Clinton with fostering the current situation between the US and Russia.

“Hillary's support at every turn for NATO expansion, including even into Ukraine and Georgia against all common sense, was a trip wire that violated the post-Cold War settlement in Europe in 1991,” Sachs says. “As Senator in 2008, Hillary co-sponsored 2008-SR439, to include Ukraine and Georgia in NATO. As Secretary of State, she then presided over the restart of the Cold War with Russia.”

    Two of the worst women in that world..

    Sachs is a disaster in himself.

    The woman is pure evil. Americans deserve what they get if they elect this satanic nut job.
  • michael
    the republicans must be getting worried..
  • karlof1
    What's nuts is Sachs only scratches the surface of Clinton's evils; her actual record is much worse going back to when she was in love with arch-conservative Republican Barry Goldwater in the 1960s. She's a real Medusa and deserves the same fate!
  • she is psychopath, for sure.
  • Ann
    I don't understand why jihadists will blow up a school or theater full of innocent people, when all they would need is get one suicide bomber next to this witch - the one doing all the damage. The deep state HAS TO control the terrorists too, or someone would've gotten her already.

    karlof1, I too believe the world would be a lot lighter without bill and hillary clinton on it.

    Mitach2002, Vote rigging will get her elected regardless.
  • earlw35
    Even Women who don't vote for her will burn in hell, says Madeline Albright, those who don't better read Roger Stone's "The Clinton's War on Women."
  • Zhukov
    She will be elected because she is the Deep State- aggressive military and predatory banking.
  • Kim Kyu-Un
    Electing Hillary is a term-limit violation of the 22nd amendment,
    if you consider the legal definition of 'husband and wife' as one person.

    little more than a billboard for the military industrial complex

    sixpack6t9, Good Day to you! Your observation is prescient! No business or political leader--except in Pakistan--is targeted by terrorists, only innocent civilians. Sure, innocents make easier targets, but I think there's a reason why that's more important--a scared public is more likely to trade in its rights for increased security--note how the so-called Patriot Act consisting of several hundred pages was all ready to go as soon as the twin towers crumbled to the ground after being demolished by nano-thermite--the explosive that did the work the airliners could never do. All the preparations for 911 were done while Clinton was president. You are correct in your thinking!

    sixpack6t9, Isn't it such a shame we have such thoughts; that if we rid the planet of a few thousand people it would be a much "lighter" place to live. I hope our daughters will be able to live without such darkness shadowing their lives!
  • Ann in reply tokarlof1(Show commentHide comment)
    karlof1, I stress over these thoughts all the time. My Christian side says it's wrong, but my practical, human side says to lay the blame where it belongs. I certainly dislike what mankind has become.

    sixpack6t9, Yes, but not all humans are psychotic animals! You and I are such examples of people capable of wishing the other a Happy Valentine's while we try to educate other folks about what's really happening in the world.
  • Ann in reply tokarlof1(Show commentHide comment)
    karlof1, And I do wish everyone wonderful things, but reality is, we're all going to pay for the greed and stupidity of the few. I wish this world was at peace, free and prosperous. I wish there was no more hate, fear or horror or senseless killing. I wish we could all see each other as equals. Thank you for your time and caring. This is one web site that doesn't feel wrong. I love you guys/gals.
