Republican presidential candidates do guarantee a third world war by losing the White House to Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton, says a former CIA contractor. “It’s just amazing what’s coming out of the Republicans, the GOP’s mouth that’s almost like they really want Hillary Clinton to be elected and guarantee a third world war,” Steven Kelly told Press TV on Monday.
Commenting on the latest remarks made by Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham, Kelly said, “He has absolutely no chance to be president.” Graham lashed out at President Barack Obama over his foreign policy and argued that his policy helped the rise of the ISIL terrorist group in the Middle East. He also criticized Obama for the withdrawal of US military forces from Iraq and said, “He left Iraq too soon.”
Kelly said, “Clearly, I don’t think Iraq has any desire to see America return, especially now that they are having such trouble with ISIL and they are actually finding Mossad and the CIA employees working and actually capturing these people on the ground assisting ISIS (ISIL). So clearly this is nonsense.”
“Obviously this was a stunt intended to bolster his chances to be elected president,” he added. On Friday, Obama mocked the crowded field of Republican presidential candidates, saying “we’ve got some healthy competition in the Democratic Party, but I’ve lost count how many Republicans are running for this job.”
“They’ll have enough for an actual Hunger Games,” said Obama.
The Republican presidential nomination contest currently features 14 candidates. Two others, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Ohio Governor John Kasich, are expected to announce bids later this month.
The candidates have so far spent much of their time to criticize Obama for a sluggish economy and a weak foreign policy.
