Sanders Questions Clinton's Judgement in Voting for Iraq War"We both looked at the same evidence about the wisdom of the war... on of us voted the right way."
OK. The fact that the Iraq War was for oil is a fact. There are other facts that Hillary Supporters might find surprising...
Blog post: Rachel Maddow Exposes The Bush Administration's Reason For The Iraq War: Oil
We know the Iraq War was for oil based on documents of the time;
... and we know Halliburton made a ton of money off of the Iraq War and the deaths of 4000+ US Citizens (soldiers) and over 100,000 kills (not to mention its aftermath and side effects, just saying, since media hosts are often careful not to mention this, i.e. true cost of the Iraq War, except for maybe Chris Mathews, while Rachel Maddow seems to be worried about her corporate card or lack of it. God knows what else is going on).
Might seem like a steep price to someone who values the life of humans. But Bush & Cheney were clearly not one of them. Neither was their adviser, Henry Kissinger... who is also friend to Hillary Clinton.
Nation: Henry Kissinger, Hillary Clinton’s Tutor in War and PeaceLast night, Clinton once again praised a man with a lot of blood on his hands.
Let’s consider some of Kissinger’s achievements during his tenure as Richard Nixon’s top foreign policy–maker. He (1) prolonged the Vietnam War for five pointless years; (2) illegally bombed Cambodia and Laos; (3) goaded Nixon to wiretap staffers and journalists; (4) bore responsibility for three genocides in Cambodia, East Timor, and Bangladesh; (5) urged Nixon to go after Daniel Ellsberg for having released the Pentagon Papers, which set off a chain of events that brought down the Nixon White House; (6) pumped up Pakistan’s ISI, and encouraged it to use political Islam to destabilize Afghanistan; (7) began the US’s arms-for-petrodollars dependency with Saudi Arabia and pre-revolutionary Iran; (8) accelerated needless civil wars in southern Africa that, in the name of supporting white supremacy, left millions dead; (9) supported coups and death squads throughout Latin America; and (10) ingratiated himself with the first-generation neocons, such as Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz, who would take American militarism to its next calamitous level. Read all about it in Kissinger’s Shadow!
Hillary actually bragged about her relationship with War Criminal Henry Kissinger, so lets not assume there was nothing ulterior motivating Hillary's vote FOR the Iraq Oil War as that is clearly not the case. They take advice from the same guy (Bush & Clinton).
Even Bill Clinton is known to have lamented not killing innocent women and children to kill Osama Bin Laden, the day before 9/11.
LATIMES: A day before Sept. 11, 2001, former President Bill Clinton told an audience that he could have had Osama bin Laden killed, but chose not to, because an attack could have endangered innocent women and children in Afghanistan.
“I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him.”
(I should point out that Obama got him with ONE Seal team. Or so I heard).
Clearly, killing innocent women and children was not a worry when Hillary Clinton voted for the Iraq War. JUST for that, she shouldn't be President. i.e. no heart

... while this post proves, through Hillary's associations and choices,... she has none. Whether its when she lies about her foreign policy "experience" or when she pretends to have normal worries like other people because her life long experience of wealth has brought her to a point where people are expendable and can be rated on a scale of importance. Some people are simply meant to be servants, why help them when she can help her rich friends get richer? Where else should the money go but to people who know how to use it? Or so she must think, in some way or another.
The following article extracts paint an truly awful picture of the type of person Hillary is;
Of Course Clinton Has Foreign Policy Experience, But Her Experience Has Been a Total Disaster Hillary's foreign policy experience is a series of bellicose missteps.
The most commonly cited mistake was her support for the Iraq war, which is one of the main reasons she lost the nomination the first time around. But the choices she’s made after 2008 show she not only didn’t learn any lessons from that war, but has only grown more bellicose and hawkish. From advocating regime change in Libya to arming dubious opposition forces in Syria to undermining peace with Iran, Clinton has consistently been wrong on foreign policy.

Establishment fighting back:
New Yorker Magazine Shooting Blindly at Bernie SandersIt ran a piece asking, “Should Millennials Get Over Bernie Sanders?”
It’s clear that Bernie Sanders has gotten many mainstream types upset. After all, he is raising issues about the distribution of wealth and income that they would prefer be kept in academic settings, certainly not pushed front and center in a presidential campaign.
Dems, stop lying to yourselves about Hillary: Sure, she “gets s*** done” — atrocious s***, that isThe argument that Clinton can navigate the nightmare of D.C. better than Bernie is simply wrong
Hillary Clinton’s self-satisfied privilege: Her Goldman Sachs problem helps explain the popularity of Bernie Sanders and Donald TrumpShe has a peculiar tone-deafness to how matters of class relate to her personally. It helps explain Sanders's rise
Clinton would do well to contemplate the words of the English writer G.K. Chesterton, in response to the claim that rich politicians cannot be bribed: “The rich man bribed; he has been bribed already. That is why he is a rich man.”
She's so heartless she might this image to understand that the kind of stuff she condoned in foreign policy (i.e. her "experience") is morally and strategically wrong.
But then again, maybe not. There are poor white people too.
