Hillary: This plane thing is really Europe’s problem

posted at 10:01 am on July 18, 2014 by Noah Rothman

President Barack Obama’s reaction to the worst attack on a civilian aircraft since September 11, 2001 was …underwhelming. Without even issuing a statement of condemnation, as did his last predecessor to face Russian aggression did, the president devoted all of 38 seconds to addressing what he called a “tragedy” over the skies of Ukraine.

Some of the president’s defenders have suggested that Obama is merely displaying excess caution amid heightened tensions in the midst of a situation that could quickly spiral beyond anyone’s control. Those supporters are quick to add that this caution is a welcome change from the last administration’s shoot first, ask questions later approach to foreign affairs – an unfair and misguided assessment, but one which is nevertheless prevalent among president’s backers.

The individual vying to become his successor, a former Secretary of State no less, put the lie to the notion that Obama was merely being extremely cautious when he did not deviate from his schedule of eating sampling Delaware’s local fare and sermonizing about “roads and bridges” for the umpteenth time.

No, Obama’s caution is another example of the president refusing to address crises in a timely fashion due to what he probably believes is an attachment to the doctrinal fantasy that the United States is overextended in the world. Hillary Clinton confirmed that when she told Charlie Rose on Thursday night that this whole plane mess is really Europe’s problem.

“As you know, the Europeans have tried to figure out the best way forward,” she said when asked how the United States should respond to clear evidence that pro-Russian separatists using Russian hardware killed nearly 300 foreign civilians. “From my perspective — and I have the benefit of not being in the government — if there is evidence linking Russia to this, that should inspire the Europeans to do much more.”

After noting that the world should put “[Russian President Vladimir] Putin on notice” and not “stand idly by,” Clinton reassured Rose that the United States would stand idly by.

“So Europeans have to be the ones to take the lead on this,” said the former secretary. “It was a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur over European territory. There should be outrage in European capitals.”

That sucking sound you hear is the rapid formation of a power vacuum in Europe as the United States signals its noninterest in matters of regional and global security.

As of this writing, the bodies of only 181 of the 298 passengers on board Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 have been recovered. There has been no confirmation from the U.S. government that American citizens were not on that plane. For Clinton, an aspiring President of the United States to suggest that Americans killed on a civilian transport flying over hostile territory — made hostile, by Obama’s own admission, by Russian actions – is not America’s problem is insulting and irresponsible.

Fortunately, at least insofar as the reaction in the British press is concerned, Europe is taking this escalation of hostilities with the seriousness it deserves:

So why did you do all you could to convince Barky to get busy bombing Khaddafy in Libya? Afterall, that was a North African issue.

For some strange and maybe sexist reason the opening of this article strikes me as some kind of metaphor for a Hillary Clinton presidency:

The White House has picked the first female general to head the Air Force in the Pacific, which will make her the first non-pilot to command air power in such a large theater of operation.

The thing is, if the comment were taken in the context of an administration that wasn’t feckless, it would be so very true. Europe does need to step up to the plate on this stuff. We shouldn’t be guaranteeing their regional peace and harmony.

But, with Americans on board? My response would at a minimum involve some big bangs in the middle of the night, as every identified piece of AD hardware the “separatists” have went bye-bye.

This is from the link that Drudge has, the link that states “23″ Americans dead.

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/07/17/ukraine-adviser-malaysian-airlines-jet-shot-down-by-missile-near-ukraine-russia-border/

But it appears the the story has been updated by CBS at that link…

An earlier tally of 295 dead was raised to include three infants in an official list of passengers released by Malaysia Airlines. The bulk of the passengers were from the Netherlands — 154 people. Next highest was 45 from Malaysia and 27 from Australia.

No American passengers have been confirmed dead. There are still 20 passengers whose nationalities have yet to be verified.

I think that someone jumped the gun with the “23″ figure.

Walter L. Newton on July 18, 2014 at 10:25 AM

She kept us out of war.

It would be interesting if there could be found a telegram from Russia to Mexico, asking them to “attack” the USA by flooding the borders. But “Zimmermann” doesn’t sound very Russian.

Shrillary’s a moron and Barky’s an America-hating traitor (both of whom should be wearing orange jumpsuits) but the fact is that this airliner had no business flying over a war zone where other planes had already been shot down and, further, it wasn’t an American plane.

America had an interest in defending Ukraine (because we had made an agreement with them in order to get them to stupidly cough up their nukes) – which Barky ignored – but this Malaysian airliner has nothing to do with us the same way the last lost Malaysian airliner had nothing to do with us and should not have had any American assets used to search for it unless the Malaysian government had begged us to help them.

TSK9 on July 18, 2014 at 10:32 AM

Likewise. Unlike the utterly vapid answer she gave Jon Stewart about American foreign policy, this line of thought could lead to a whole raft of questions to properly reexamine our role in the world. For example, if issues like Ukraine/Crimea, Iraq/ISIS, Libya, etc. are not our problem, then why do we have so many forces forward deployed? And if we don’t need so many forward deployed forces, then why don’t we place our forces on the southern border? And if we don’t think we need to defend our southern border, why do we need such a large military? And if we don’t need such a large military, what exactly are our now-limited vital concerns where we would feel compelled to expend treasure and blood?

Our foreign policy is a shambles, and it is sad to think that the Cold War ended 24 years ago and we have yet to truly adjust our thinking.

So. The Telegraph didn’t make that five minute phone call either? They have a list, no Americans yet. There are 20 people yet accounted for as far as nationality is concerned.

I’m not saying there couldn’t have been Americans on board. And I agree it would be strange if at least one wasn’t (on an international flight). But I also can’t believe that someone is holding back the information.

If the info was being surpressed, then it would have to be suppressed at the source. The Netherlands. I find that a little hard to believe.

Not impossible, but hard to believe.

There are 20 people yet accounted for as far as nationality is concerned.

This is a stupid person. Her husband is vacant. There is no there there. Asking either of these two about anything shows a lack of seriousness by the person asking the questions.

Do you think HIllary’s response might be different if Chelsea had been on that plane?

I heard that 23 americans were aboard. Murdered by Pro Russian insurgents…..
That at least deserves airstrikes on any Pro Russian insurgents rocket launchers….
But Obama won’t do that – his panties are too tight.

If they don’t know who was on the manifest, that is another big problem.

For sure, we knew the truth about Obama before he was elected, and now, once again we know the truth about the Mrs. Will this next election be just another day in the lives of an uniformed, ignorant electorate?

I think the electorate was excited about “the first black president” in the post Bush era, unfortunately for Hillary I don’t think anyone (other than committed feminist) cares whether she is the “first female president”.

A: It would have to be from us.
b: Malaysia airlines.

Obama goes off again to whore for money and Hillary sticks foot in mouth. 4 or 23 Americans, what difference does it make? Your New Democrat Party!

Monica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend’s wife asks:

What difference, at this point, does it make?

It will make liberals feel good about themselves.

And in their feeble minds, that’s all that matters.

For once I agree with her to a point. Europe should get off THEIR welfare asses and take the lead on a major issue in their own backyard.

Like it or not, WE are the world’s lone superpower. But WE aren’t acting like it. The results of that are what we are now seeing.

Somebody in this world will always be top dog. I prefer it be us. Sometimes that means we have to be involved in less-than-optimal situations. It sucks but that’s the way it is.
