The 2016 US presidential candidates, including Hilary Clinton, are competing against one another by using strong language against China and Russia in order to receive campaign funding from wealthy neoconservative groups, a political analyst from Virginia says.
“The way that American politics works is that the candidate with the most money almost always wins, at least at the national level,” said Keith Preston, chief editor and director of AttacktheSystem.com, a website dedicated to encouraging revolt against domestic and foreign US government policies.
“The candidate that has the most money wins about 90 percent of the time,” Preston told Press TV on Sunday.
“What Ms. Clinton is trying to do is stake out a position for herself as far as picking a hard-line stance against Russia and against China for the sake of gaining the financial backing of all of the neoconservative billionaire plutocrats,” he said.
“We’ve got a lot of Republicans, about 15 or 20 candidates that are all trying to outdo each other in terms of how hawkish they can be on foreign policy and how tough they say they’re going to be on Iran or on Russia or whomever and Ms. Clinton is trying to get on that game as well,” he added.
Preston made the comments after Democratic presidential candidate Clinton criticized both China and Russia for threatening its neighbors and undermining American interests.....Strategic Culture Foundation
