Hillary calls for "internationalism" at CFR

Put on your tinfoil hats, all you Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) trackers! On Halloween, Senator Hillary Clinton ghave us all something special —— calling for "a more internationalist foreign policy" at the Council for Foreign Relations, as reported by l'Agence France Presse (no less).

So you think John Kerry stuck his foot in it this week?  Hillary has also dropped a loud cherry bomb.  "Internationalism" is a heavy codeword for the Left, meaning you—know—what for the world. The radical Left used to stand up and sing The Internationale at every CP meeting, in the good old time of Stalin & Co. Hillary knows that from her days as a firebreathing radical. But to drop it into the national debate just before election time, when the dangers of nukes and terrorism are on the minds of voters is not smart. Bill would never have done it. Here are her actual words, 

"First, and most obviously, we must by word and deed renew internationalism for a new century," said Clinton ... Clinton also defended the idea of bilateral talks with nations that Washington has been avoiding, such as Iran and Cuba.

Hmmm...  didn't Jimmy Carter try to talk to the Mullahs for hundreds and hundreds of days? And didn't Hillary's husband Bill give two 2 billion dollar nuclear reactors to Kim Jong Il, if he promised to be nice?  The Democrats haven't actually had much of a track record with either carrots or sticks, when it comes to the goofier variety of lunocracy.

On the substance, is  "internationalism" really going to save us against Kim and Ahmadinejad? Do the Europeans and the UN really care enough about us to protect us when the chips are down?
