You still don’t get it. I don’t have to defend what Hillary did because every one of the problems you assigned to her were not of her doing. You placed the blame on her without considering any other factors, several of which I provided for you.

That in and of itself obviates your accusations.

I’m a bit of a history buff…so tell me, can you think of any civil war in history that was caused by a foreign diplomat’s statements or lack thereof? I can’t…and the reason’s obvious: with the exception of those caused by surreptitious insertion of military force by other nations (e.g. Ukraine by Russia, Vietnam by America), civil wars are always the result of internal political, social, and/or economic pressures.

Hillary didn’t cause the Syrian civil war — it started in 2011, and we finally chose to support the anti-government forces two years later, after (IIRC) Assad’s use of chemical weapons. If we never sent arms to the rebels until two years after the civil war started, exactly how did Hillary cause the civil war? Hint: she didn’t. Just so you know I’m not giving you anything from a far-left site, Here’s what the Encyclopedia Britannica says about the Syrian civil war.

Hillary didn’t cause the Libyan civil war. What she did do was to engage with the rest of NATO to intervene because both sides were committing atrocities against civilians. NATO essentially chose to side with the rebels. But no, she didn’t cause the Libyan civil war. You really should read up sometime on non-right-wing-shill sites. Just so you know I’m not giving you anything from a far-left site, Here’s what the Encyclopedia Britannica says about the Libyan civil war.

Sir, I recommend you step back for a moment and consider what it is that caused you to blame Hillary for all the world’s ills…especially when the evidence shown on non-political sites shows just the opposite. As I pointed out in my first post on this thread, the Right has vilified Hillary since the early 1990’s, when I was still a Republican. From then on, it became a matter of unquestionable dogma that Hillary was the worst person ever. You read a lot of stuff on right-wing sites — have you EVER seen anything complimentary about her on those sites? What that means is that either Hillary really is evil incarnate…or right-wing media/pundits/preachers/politicians know that she isn’t, but dare not say anything good about her…and so they immediately ostracize and break the career of anyone who breaks ranks.

That, sir, is why so many Republicans believe deep in their hearts that Hillary is bad/evil/terrible/whatever…because they hear nothing else. You yourself are intelligent…but it doesn’t matter how intelligent someone is, if that person can’t or won’t hear the other side. That’s why I like to get information from non-political sites.
