This article deftly avoids mentioning that the Khymer Rouge came to power in the wake of the US' extensive bombings, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Cambodians, not to mention the landmines that are still strewn across Cambodian territory and continue to maim and kill today.

"Now I am getting a lot of different information from different places but just wanted to make sure what is true. She is said to be happy in a "new relationship" but she went to dinner with her ex-boyfriend on 12/4 and brought him back to her dorm room. "

Exactly. That was her personal choice, and unfortunately it led to dire consequences.

Funny everyone avoids bringing up Trump...he may be off on a variety of issues (i.e. climate change), but basically what he's been saying pertinent to this issue has turned out to be accurate...other pc politicians have skirted or avoided saying anything to avoid being labeled this or that

Hey CrucialS,

trying to blame the US and ROK for running defensive drills bi-annually due to a hyper aggressive DPRK is ridiculous. Let's not forget who invaded who in the first place*

This shows how little the likes of you know-

[ One of the worst incidents preceded the Korean War, in 1948, when the new Syngman Rhee government installed in Seoul by the United States ordered its army to suppress a leftist revolt on Cheju Island. About 30,000 local people were gunned down...At Taejon, about 140kilometres south of Seoul, prisoners were shuttled out of the city's jail by the army and police, marched with hands bound to the edge of long trenches, made to lie down, and then shot with rifles. Their bodies were rolled in and covered. ] http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/south-korea-owns-up-to-brutal-past/2008/11/14/1226318928410.html

It's those incidents which caused the war to break out between the citizens of Korea and the US-backed Korean elite who had collaborated with the Japanese colonialists 1910-1945.

The US' military industrial complex makes billions per year by keeping the the region in a state of conflict...if you can't figure that out, you may as well hang out in Disneyland.

even as neighboring North Korea has conducted nuclear and missile tests with unprecedented intensity

Anyone intimately familiar with the situation will know that they typically conduct missile tests when the US is running massive war games (involving tens of thousands of troops, attack helicopters, etc) with South Korea's military.

Yes curious that the people involved in declaring her innocent were paid a lot of money and met with Bill for a meeting on an airplane...also interesting that she destroyed her phones and destroyed evidence after being subpoenaed by the US Congress.

Of course the rational conclusion is that she is truly innocent.

Posted in: Clinton lashes out at FBI's handling of new email review See in context

Strangerland-

[ Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received emails from her top aides warning about dangerous security conditions in Benghazi, Libya, in the run-up to the terrorist attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans there in 2012, documents disclosed on Friday show.

The messages were part of a batch of about 300 emails involving Benghazi that were made public by the State Department.

The emails, in addition to what they reveal about the Benghazi attack, offer glimpses into Mrs. Clinton’s thinking and executive style. In an exchange with aides about to testify on Capitol Hill, she wrote: “Well, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (as I have rationalized for years), so just survive and you’ll have triumphed!” ]

Posted in: Clinton lashes out at FBI's handling of new email review See in context

[ The controversy over Clinton’s email practices at the State Department has dogged her for more than a year. The former secretary of state has often been reluctant to weigh in on the matter — and defensive when she’s been pushed to do so.]

There would be no controversy if she had handled her email properly./hadn't deleted over 30,000 emails.

It's also worth noting that if you formulate policies and conduct yourself in ways that get innocent people killed (i.e. US embassy staff in Benghazi), strangely enough those things find a way to get back to you.
