Hillary Praises Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan

Notice I said "Hillary"

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, praising the former Soviet Union yesterday for its 1979 invasion of Afghanistan, said that the attack helped bring women's rights to the fundamentalist Muslim country.

"The Soviets tried to provide more opportunities for women," Clinton told the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, in a speech billed by her office as "her first major foreign policy address as a U.S. senator."

In quotes picked up by the New York Sun, Mrs. Clinton noted that Afghanistan was "the place where September 11 was conceived and implemented." She then criticized the Bush administration for not focusing more on the former al-Qaeda stronghold.

Contrasting the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan with that of the Evil Empire, Clinton complained, "Too soon the eyes of the administration moved from Kabul to Baghdad."

The former first lady detailed her Thanksgiving Day meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, saying she urged him to implement a high-profile effort to improve maternal health.

Clinton said that such a program would be critical because the people of Afghanistan need to see that America's presence has produced "tangible results" like schools and health clinics - not just electoral and political reforms.

She then suggested that a Soviet-style occupation of Afghanistan, which included the wholesale slaughter of the Afghan people in a bid to install a puppet government, had its merits, since it helped women.

"One of the reasons why we were able to marshal the Mujaheddin and the warlords against the Soviets is because the Soviets tried to provide more opportunities for women," she told the CFR.

New Hillary Revelations

In Hillary's Scheme Limbacher makes dozens of new revelations:

Why Hillary is running in 2004, and not 2008
How Hillary can join the Democratic ticket as the party's VP nominee
Hillary's behind-the-scenes effort to torpedo Al Gore that forced him to withdraw from the 2004 race
Hillary's use of secret investigators to dig up dirt and smear her opponents
The critical mistake the Bush White House made, paving the way for Hillary's presidential quest
A top Hillary aide reveals her private side and her frequent violent rages
the late Barbara Olson's discovery that Hillary, and not Bill, took care of "the dirty stuff."
Dick Morris' shocking revelation of an anti-Semitic slur Hillary made to him
Hillary's never-before-revealed explanation she made directly to Limbacher about her husband's failure to extradite bin Laden.
New details about her husband's sex scandals - scandals that gave her tremendous power and made her a de facto president
Where the millions of dollars she is raising is really going?
And much, much more.

In this book you'll find out how Hillary has lied about her intentions before (once saying she would never run for the Senate), and how she has, inch-by-inch changed her story about running in 2004.

Hillary's Scheme is more than unmasking of Hillary's president ambitions. It's a book making seismic waves as it exposes the former First Lady's greedy ambition and shows her for the power crazed women she is.



Yep, that's a reputable source of unbaised information, that NewsMax.

Isn't "Hillary's Scheme" a book? What does that have to do with Newsmax? Of course they are a slanted organization, but that makes them no less reputable as say Common Dreams or The Guardian.

Pretty much why I believe little of what I see in those publications either. Critical reading appears to be a poorly taught skill amongst you rightards. Very Happy

Seems to be a ringing endorsement by the organisation, 'slanted' is an understatement. Have you actually bothered to take a look at some of the linkings? I originally thought it was some sort of parody site.

Must be tough having to find new reasons to hate Hillary all the time. If only she could be insipid, like the current First Lady...

Ahhh.... I looked deeply into Putin's eyes and I saw: such a good dude. No really!!!! A great man!!!! Sorry, off subject...

Funny how it all seems to work these days. The countries that the US sides with don't seem to have the best track records visa vi democracy. Pakistan is a terrorist supporting dictatorship... but they were on our side against afghanistan. Women had some rights in Afghanistan until we help to un-de-re-stabilize that country. Women in Iraq had more rights under Sadaam the villain than they do now under the provisional supposed to be democracy we are installing.

I don't know mac Gentrix. Are we on the side of democracy? For all? In the modern non sexist sense? Are we?

Is that the republican agenda? Or do women belong in the kitchen?

Hillary is decidedly not in the kitchen. She's about as military as a woman can be. The hard left calls her artillary hillary. She supports Bush's wars. What do you want? Really...

Guys, I AM fuckin' serious. I followed the link given with the first post and found this:

Anne Coulter talking doll offer

I really DID think that this was a parody site, like TheOnion or Landover Baptist. I honestly didn't think that anyone could produce such a product, let alone make it part of a subscription offer!
