Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton got into a debate during the Democratic debate that virtually no one saw. After all, if your goal is to attract viewers what exactly do you expect by holding a debate on Saturday evening? Bernie blasted Hillary Clinton for being in favor of ‘regime change.’ “I see that Secretary Clinton is too much into regime change and far too aggressive without knowing wha the consequences can be.” Bernie, you are absolutely right, but you also don’t confront the issue of what happens when people rebel against their government.
Hillary Clinton was wrong to vote for the invasion of Iraq. I have a hunch these days this is one time she wished she had been sick in bed. Secretary Clinton doe raise an interesting issue –if the US does not become engaged in foreign affairs, then who will assume that role? The problem is that America for over decades has interpreted being involved in foreign issues as synonymous with regime change. America DOES have to be engaged in the world, the issue is HOW to be involved?
