Despite blather from Hillary and her enthusiastic media supporters, the facts are that she is a dangerous warmonger, with all her threatening rhetoric towards Russia and Putin, while Trump has a cool, measured attitude, and thinks in terms of how to cooperate with Russia to destroy ISIS, a much more desirable goal that a thermonuclear war with Moscow, wouldn't you say. Anyhow, here is the post:
In what may seem an odd role-reversal, in this election the Democrat is the war hawk and the Republican is the peace candidate. Donald Trump has laid out his vision for a non-interventionist foreign policy, while Hillary Clinton believes in “humanitarian intervention”, i.e., making war for peace. Trump has rightly called George W. Bush’s Iraq war a disaster, while Clinton still defends the intervention in Libya that destroyed the Libyan state.
In fact, this represents a return to historic patterns. There is an old saying, forgotten in recent decades, that goes, “Vote for a Republican and you get a depression, vote for a Democrat and you get a war.” America’s worst president ever, the Democrat Woodrow Wilson, won re-election in 1916 with the slogan, “He kept us out of war,” then took us into World War I within a month of his second inauguration. He thereby gave the world the Versailles Diktat, Hitler, Stalin, and World War II.
