War Goddess Samantha Power to Join Interventionist Biden/Harris Regime
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Like other interventionists chosen to be part of the Biden/Harris regime, Power never met a nation free from US control she didn’t want smashed.
The late Edward Herman once called her a member of “the cruise missile left” for good reason — time and again justifying what’s unjustifiable, adding:
She “never departs from the selectivity dictated by the establishment party line.”
Historian Howard Zinn (1922 – 2010) challenged her imperial rage, saying:
“(S)he claims a moral distinction between ‘inadvertent’ killing of civilians in bombings and ‘deliberate’ targeting of civilians in suicide attacks,” adding:
“Her position is not only illogical, but makes it easier to justify such bombings.”
“The terrorism of the suicide bomber and the terrorism of aerial bombardment are indeed morally equivalent.”
“To say otherwise is to give one moral superiority over the other, and thus serve to perpetuate the horrors of our time.”
Law Professor Francis Boyle once called her husband Cass Sunstein a “lethal neocon.”
The same goes for Power.
Historian Gabriel Kolko (1932 – 2014) called US imperial rage “violen(t), racis(t), repressi(ve) at home and abroad (and) cultural(ly) mendaci(ous).”
The above applies to Power and likeminded apologists for genocide, Herman calling her book “A Problem from Hell:
A “masterpiece of evasion and apologetics for ‘our’ genocides and call for a more aggressive pursuit of ‘theirs.’ ”
Her worldview opposes peace and stability.
In response to earlier John Kerry criticism of US aggression in Southeast Asia before he changed his stripes in support of imperial rage as US senator and secretary of state, Power slammed his earlier incarnation as follows:
“He must have thought that having got shrapnel in his ass out there bought him some credibility. It didn’t.”
She once called US foreign policy “a tool box” with a range of options to advance the nation’s global agenda.
She and fellow Obama/Biden regime neocon Susan Rice urged preemptive “humanitarian” aggression on Libya and
Syria in 2011 — along with likeminded war goddess Hillary.
Civil rights lawyer Chase Madar called called Power’s agenda from hell “a richly instructive example of the weaponization of human rights.”
She called the Clinton co-presidency’s rape and destruction of the former Yugoslavia “a stunning success (sic),” falsely adding:
Mass slaughter and destruction “saved hundreds of thousands of lives (sic).”
Throughout her blood-drenched time in Washington, she glorified US high crimes of war and against humanity — genocides called responsibility to protect and humanitarian interventions.
In response to Russia’s earlier call for an emergency Security Council session to address US aggression in Syria, she shamelessly bashed what she called Moscow’s “uniquely hypocritical and cynical” attempt to make her explain Obama/Biden’s aggression.
Like other hostile to the rule of law US officials, she falsely blamed others for US high crimes of war and against humanity.
She’s chosen to be incoming Biden/Harris regime USAID director.
Along with the undemocratic National Endowment for Democracy and similar groups in Washington, USAID’s mandate is interventionism to advance US imperial interests.
Power is an old hand at involvement in supporting US high crimes of war and against humanity to control, plunder and otherwise exploit targeted nations.
That’s why dark forces behind Biden/Harris chose her for USAID — to advance this interventionist agenda from hell.
