Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Thursday the United States must continue to lead the world because it represents an ideal of democracy.
Rice — one of the architects of the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq — told a crowd at Norwich University the United States should use counterterrorism operations, including the possible use of attacks with aerial drones, to keep the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant from making territorial gains."We do not want these people in charge of a swath of land the size of Indiana," said Rice, the former National Security Adviser and Secretary of State under George W. Bush.
In my opinion, Condoleeza Rice is the most disgusting American alive today. And I thought that before I learned that she's still spouting wingnut war rhetoric. I mean, the goddamned mushroom cloud lady is actually pushing for another war. It's chutzpah gone mad, and entirely beyond the pale. She is a monster. Obviously, she learned nothing from her recent dabbling in world affairs. Condi, you failed. Big-time.
What must it be like to be that clueless? It's a frightening thought. And some people listened to her quietly -- and maybe even clapped when she was done? Ugh. Condoleeza Rice should be hissed and booed by every human she encounters for the rest of her life.
One last note: I did enjoy a remark made by one of the protesters who was "escorted" from the event:
"We feel that Condoleezza Rice led us into one illegal war and had that not happened, we wouldn't be beating the drums of war that are being beaten right now to go back into Iraq," Zevon said.
Well said, Zevon.
