Albright: Deaths of 500k children “worth it”

20 January 2008
As Monte Asbury asks:
How much does Clinton want to “reverse it”?
clipped from www.aljazeera.com
Clinton stated in that feed that this race was personal instead of political in which she said, “I see what’s happening and we have to reverse it.” To this I would love to ask Sen. Clinton: Do you wish to reverse it back to when your husband was our president in which we sanctioned the Iraqi people thereby killing one million of its citizens?
I keep on harping on this, but former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright –when asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Leslie Stahl if it was worth over 500,000 innocent Iraqi children dying — said, “It was worth it.”
Many supporters of Sen. Clinton will state that she was President Bill Clinton’s true partner, so she must be held responsible for these Iraqi deaths. He saw fit to hold Iraq accountable due to their non-compliance of U.N. resolutions, yet no one is holding Israel accountable for their non-compliance of 71 U.N. resolutions.

While George Bush II was, and is a warmonger, so was Madeleine Albright. The difference, I suppose, for the American electorate, was that Madelien Albright (and her boss Bill Clinton) killed other people, like Iraqis and Serbs, rather than Americans.

So Monte Asbury’s question is right on: Does Hillary Clinton really want to “reverse it”.

    I spoke this morning in worship about how Jesus began his incarnate life as a refugee. We blinked and wondered together if it had anything at all to say to us.

    Seems like we’re in a bubble in the USA, and simply can’t see the horrendous barbarity of our own impact on the world.
