Editorial – Geoffrey M. Young



Dear Editorial Board of the Lexington Herald-Leader:

I was outside the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia carrying a sign that read, “Clinton is a war criminal.” The main chant of thousands of democracy-loving Americans was, “Hell no, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary.”

Clinton and President Obama became aggressors – war criminals – in 2011 when they destroyed Libya, turned it into a failed state, and created thousands of jihadist terrorists for no sane reason.
Now that Bernie Sanders has endorsed Clinton the warmonger, Jill Stein of the Green Party is by far the best candidate.
Since 1968, my party has been split over the issue of war. Powerful, corrupt Democrats such as the Clintons have merely papered over the split by refusing ever to talk about Washington’s worldwide military empire.

Trump said, “Why should I denounce Putin? Wouldn’t it be nice if we actually got along with Russia, and China, and all these countries?” That’s wiser and more statesmanlike than anything I’ve ever heard Clinton say.

Clinton is violent, aggressive, ignorant, and reckless. She could unintentionally start a nuclear war with Russia, which could wipe out the USA forever. Helping Jill Stein or Donald Trump beat Clinton this fall should be the peace movement’s most urgent priority.
