Social media sang praises to alleged US President Hillary Clinton, as current President Donald Trump seemed to be in total war with Iran – even though Clinton was a much more enthusiastic participant in the US wars.
After the Iranian missiles struck several US bases on Tuesday night, twitter #Resistance wasted no time denying the government that they blamed the hostilities, rushing into the arms of its arch rival with the hashtag #IVotedforHillaryClinton.
I am proud to raise my hand and say that I voted for Intelligence. I voted for Leadership. I voted for Experience. I voted for Maturity. I voted for Sanity. I voted for the woman who wouldn't be trying to get us. in a war now.#IvotedforHillaryClinton

But claiming that Clinton was the least warlike of the two candidates, or would have driven the country away from the war with Iran, requires a serious divergence from history. The former secretary of state once told an interviewer that "I want the Iranians to know that if I am president, we will attack Iran."
This was during his 2008 campaign and in the middle of a discussion about Iran possibly attacking Israel. Perhaps its position on the Islamic Republic has declined slightly by 2016, enough to justify it as the smallest of two hawks in Iran?
No. In the months leading up to the election, she repeated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decades-long discussion of Iran "running toward nuclear capability", expanding "secret facilities" and "challenging its international obligations" before enter the nuclear agreement. and solved all the problems.
Except the deal was negotiated after it was replaced by John Kerry as the top US diplomat. Clinton was on Trump's side, demanding even more sanctions, even as the nuclear agreement came into force, this time as a punishment for Iran's ballistic missile program.
In addition to the interventionist Democrats, she was courted by a band of neocons who couldn't stand Trump's anti-interventionist rhetoric. Inveterate war advocates such as Robert Kagan and Richard Armitage fainted over the former First Lady.
Before long, Clinton's infamous clip mocking the brutal assassination of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi – "we came, we saw, he died" – resurfaced on twitter. The so-called "humanitarian" intervention in Libya was largely a creation of the Clinton State Department, complete with Gaddafi's war propaganda about delivering Viagra so that its soldiers could better commit mass rapes, and continued chaos in that state. rather advanced remains a testimony to what the region (or world) might look like.
She wanted a repeat in Syria, calling for – and fortunately failing – a no-fly zone, even admitting that it "would kill many Syrians."
I love Libya's slave markets, prison work, I don't care that 40,000 Americans die each year for lack of medical care, because nothing affects my privilege, so you know very well #IvotedforHillaryClinton

With all this in mind, some speculated that the real reason for the hashtag was to avoid liability.
#IvotedforHillaryClinton There is evidence once again that the ideal liberal scenario is never really win, so you can claim credit for things you think Democrats would or wouldn't do if they had the power.

The fact that #IvotedforHillaryClinton It's trend proves my point … Most Americans are imperialists. Hillary Clinton destroyed millions of lives and promised to annihilate Iran. It is not ignorance but partisanship. To hell with the millions of victims of American imperialism. https://t.co/dTDgyPyNrI

Several tweeters agreed that Clinton was right about Trump – but in a pot case calling the kettle black.
If you are one #IvotedforHillaryClinton, you need to recognize that your war criminal was eager for war with Iran, Iraq, Syria and even Russia. She is an explorer demagogic imperialist demagogic committed to egregiousness. The giant shower-and-grass sandwich are both corrupt shillings. pic.twitter.com/4NA7L1ifCT

Some Clinton voters showed their buyers' remorse.
#IvotedforHillaryClintonAnd it wouldn't have made much difference, because we would have invaded Iran by now, and celebrity bosses like Lena Dunham would be telling you what it's like to wake up and female power invading Iran. A million times darker.

Clinton herself could not resist regretting a smug GIF.
While Trump lost the popular vote for Clinton, he easily beat her at the Electoral College, which decides who occupies the White House. Despite its enormous advantage in political experience, its promises to bring US troops home attracted significant support. Almost four years later, however, the US is on the verge of a catastrophic expansion of its Eternal War.
