Barring some personal or political tragedy, Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States. [edit: published prior to Bernie Sanders’ campaign launch] She would be the first female commander in chief of the world’s most violent and active military.
Like every other male president in my lifetime with the exception of Jimmy Carter, Hillary will almost certainly follow the time-honored tradition of ordering bombs to rain down on the cities of nations most Americans couldn’t locate on a map.
Let’s be honest, no matter who’s president, we’ll be at perpetual war. Like Frank Zappa said, the White House is just the entertainment division of the Pentagon. Hillary’s made it clear she’s more than willing to push the war-hawk envelope, however. VICE magazine didn’t hold back last August when they characterized her foreign policy as: “Already terrifying.”
