Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went on the far-left “Rachel Maddow Show” this week to praise President Joe Biden for “leading the world” and to advocate for more U.S. involvement in the war between Russia and Ukraine.
Clinton also made an interesting comment about inflicting pain on the average Russian citizen.
Clinton: ‘I give President Biden and the Biden administration a lot of credit for leading the world to this point’
When host Rachel Maddow commented on the Biden administration’s handling of this crisis, also noting one wonders if the U.S. is doing too much or too little, Clinton replied, “It is remarkable.”
“I give President Biden and the Biden administration a lot of credit for leading the world to this point,” Clinton said. “The strategy of disclosing intelligence, to demonstrate very clearly that Putin was trying to do once again what is done before, use disinformation, false flag operations, in order to try to justify an unjustifiable invasion was incredibly smart.”
“It was unprecedented, and it seems to have really woken up so much of the world and stymied Putin,” the former first lady and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee added.
Clinton then went on to advocate for a larger U.S. role in the foreign conflict, demanding that advanced American weaponry be sent to Ukraine:
And the second point you make, providing necessary weapons to Ukraine has begun. It needs to be accelerated. The Ukrainians need Stinger missiles to shoot down Russian aircraft. They need Javelin missiles to stop tanks. They need a lot of ammunition. They need as much support as they possibly can be given, because it is a two-prong approach now.

Clinton Wants Economic Pain
In one revealing comment, Clinton revealed the lengths and methods she would go to in order to harm Putin, emphasis added:
If the Ukrainians, with our help, can impose enough economic pain on Putin, and, sadly, the Russian people, combined with providing weapons, that that might be the only way that right now I can see us getting to a stalemate that might save the Ukrainian people from even greater tragedy.
