Behold! A "Progressive" Heroine Who Loves Aggressive War/Intervention in Africa and the Middle East

“I think he has proved that Iraq has these weapons and is hiding them, and I don’t think many informed people doubted that.” (NPR, Feb. 6, 2003) 

“We need to be ready for the possibility that the attack against the U.S. could come in some form against the homeland, not necessarily on the battlefield against our forces. And I think there, too, is an area where the American people need to be better prepared by our leadership. … It’s clear that Iraq poses a major threat. It’s clear that its weapons of mass destruction need to be dealt with forcefully, and that’s the path we’re on. I think the question becomes whether we can keep the diplomatic balls in the air and not drop any, even as we move forward, as we must, on the military side.” (NPR, Dec. 20, 2002) 

“I think the United States government has been clear since the first Bush administration about the threat that Iraq and Saddam Hussein poses. The United States policy has been regime change for many, many years, going well back into the Clinton administration. So it’s a question of timing and tactics. … We do not necessarily need a further Council resolution before we can enforce this and previous resolutions." (NPR, Nov. 11, 2002)



Lately she's been a stalwart defender of Israel's apartheid, ethnic cleansing, and terrorism(occupation, blockade, routine bombings of Gaza)  as the US Ambassador to the United Nations. She was also sponsor of the R2P Resolution passed by UNSC which turned an internal sectarian dispute fueled by Al Qaeda in Libya into a US/NATO led carpet bombing that slaughtered thousands. The recent attack in Benghazi was blowback for not only the drone killing of Al-Libi in Pakistan, but also the detainment of Al Qaeda fighters at a CIA black site near the consulate. 

She learned mass murder's always "worth it" as a protege of Madeleine Albright.
