The 9/11 commission report said that Clinton was too busy with politics at home to do what was necessary to stop the attack. OBL noticed a lack of retaliation from our government when attacked and decided that the U.S. was a "paper tiger". We were attacked 9 times in the Clinton years. Retaliation seldom came. The military was raped and national defense was a low priority.
We've been attacked once in the G.W. years. You can call it "cowboy diplomacy" all you want, but that doesn't make it ineffective.
They need to fear us, and at the moment, they do. If she gets elected President, everyone in America understands that she will undo that and go back to the just talk approach that failed in the Clinton years.
Hill needs to understand that the failed policies of her husband's administration cannot be repeated if America is to still stand large in the world.
I have zero confidence that she will understand that. I believe she would have us get small. That's not what I would envision of our great nation.
