Hillary: Reset Button was “Brilliant Stroke” Until Putin Invaded Another Country


You would think that the Clintons, of all people, would have a better grasp on how power works. But like most liberals, they are ruthless domestically and clueless internationally.

QUESTION: “You famously pressed the reset button. Are you embarrassed by that now, that gesture?”

CLINTON: “No I think it was a brilliant stroke which in retrospect it appears even more so, because look at what we accomplished. Between the Russian invasion of Georgia in August 2008, which of course torpedoed relations between United States and the Russia for good reason. We come into office, and for that period of time, the interregnum if you will, Medvedev is President, Putin is Prime Minister, and there were jobs that we wanted to get done. We wanted to get Russia on board with tough sanctions against Iran. We wanted to have a new START Treaty to limit nuclear weapons. We wanted to get their help in transiting across through huge country to get things we needed into Afghanistan. We got all that done. Putin comes back. Look where we are now. He invaded another country, so yes, but while we had that moment, we seized it, we used it, and succeeded.”

It doesn’t occur to Hillary that Putin might not have invaded another country without that silly reset button theater.

And what did the US get in exchange?

1. The worthless sanctions that are letting Iran go nuclear.

2. A treaty to limit nuclear weapons that the Russians are determined to cheat on.

3. The Northern Distribution Network, which is useful, but was a bad idea because a supply line that can be cut off by your geopolitical rival is a weakness. That vulnerability likely gave Putin the confidence to act more aggressively.

Of these only NDN was actually an accomplishment. Unfortunately Afghanistan itself became a disaster under Obama/Hillary.

    All those soldiers in Afghanistan can transit in and out by routes which can be opened or closed at the mercy of the Russians or the Pakis. If both routes are closed at once then they have to be supplied or removed by planes which have to fly over potentially hostile territory. Putting that many troops in Afghanistan and Iraq only really made sense if they were going to invade Iran at some point.
