More From the Inconsistent Left... Just What Are Their Values?

Birthplace of Independent Conservatism

The hypocrisy of the left continues to amaze. From Bloomberg.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. won’t enter into the internal conflict in Syria the way it has in Libya.

“No,” Clinton said, when asked on the CBS “Face the Nation” program if the U.S. would intervene in Syria’s unrest. Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s security forces clashed with protesters in several cities yesterday after his promises of freedoms and pay increases failed to prevent dissent from spreading across the country.

Clinton said the elements that led to intervention in Libya -- international condemnation, an Arab League call for action, a United Nations Security Council resolution -- are “not going to happen” with Syria, in part because members of the U.S. Congress from both parties say they believe Assad is “a reformer.”

“What’s been happening there the last few weeks is deeply concerning, but there’s a difference between calling out aircraft and indiscriminately strafing and bombing your own cities,” Clinton said, referring to Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s attacks on the Libyan people, “than police actions which, frankly, have exceeded the use of force that any of us would want to see.”
Unique Situations

“Each of these situations is unique,” Clinton said, referring to the Middle Eastern countries dealing with change and unrest, a list that now includes Yemen, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Syria and Bahrain.

Yup, the liberal hypocrisy of it all. No principles, no values, no consistency. Just fly by the seat of your pants progressivism.

Wonderful! And these are are current and no doubt future leaders? Glad I will be gone soon.

  1. Worse that hypocritical--Dangerous. We've just given Assad the Basher the green light to club, jail, rape and shoot those protesting his regime. He doesn't need to fear Uncle Sam's bombers.

    I am against military intervention in that region, but as a global strategic posture, we should put bad guys on notice that nothing, NOTHING is off the table.

    This administration is one long blunder carried out by a cast of buffoons. It would be funny were it not so deadly serious. His security council people have no international security experience and are woefully ill-equipped. This is national security malpractice.

  2. Intervention in the affairs of another sovereign state state without the provocation of of a direct aggressive action against the USA is in MHO wrong zs well as dangerous.

    The issue with respect to our government's involvement in the region is the blatant lack of consistency.

    But what else can we expect from a Harvard educated professorial idiot?

  3. It's especially dangerous, RN, when those "affairs" are tantamount to a civil war between the evils of 2 lessers.
