Madeleine Albright's Fascist Shamelessness

On the front page of the International Edition of The New York Times of Saturday-Sunday April 7-8, 2018, Madeleine Albright asks herself and the readers: 

Can we stop fascism, or is it too late?

On April 28, 1945 — 73 years ago — Italians hung the corpse of their former dictator Benito Mussolini upside down next to a gas station in Milan. Two days later, Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his bunker beneath the streets of war-ravaged Berlin. Fascism, it appeared, was dead.

To guard against a recurrence, the survivors of war and the Holocaust joined forces to create the United Nations, forge global financial institutions and — through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights — strengthen the rule of law. In 1989, the Berlin Wall came down and the honor roll of elected governments swelled not only in Central Europe, but also Latin America, Africa and Asia. Almost everywhere, it seemed, dictators were out and democrats were in. Freedom was ascendant.

Today, we are in a new era, testing whether the democratic banner can remain aloft amid terrorism, sectarian conflicts, vulnerable borders, rogue social media and the cynical schemes of ambitious men. The answer is not self-evident. We may be encouraged that most people in most countries still want to live freely and in peace, but there is no ignoring the storm clouds that have gathered. In fact, fascism — and the tendencies that lead toward fascism — pose a more serious threat now than at any time since the end of World War II.

Albright is a shameless politician, not only because she supported -- being jewish herself -- the zionist terror against the Palestinian people, but first of all because she herself has fascist views, which showed in statements like this: 

'we think the price is worth it,'

which she stated on CBS's 60 Minutes (May 12, 1996) in reply to Lesley Stahl's question: 

'We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?'

Albright was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations at the time.

Just imagine that, according to the United Nations, not half a million Iraqi children under five years were killed, but half a million jewish children in Israel, or half a million christian children under five years old would have been killed by a boycot, what the reaction would be. This only shows how the current racism and fascism works. Semitic children of Arab origin can be killed by the West. It remains 'the price worth it.' 

In 1995 I saw in the biggest hospital in Baghdad children die from cancer as a result of the massive use by western forces of depleted uranium granites and bullets. Because of the boycot there were no painkillers or medicines which could alleviate the pain of the children. And Madeleine Albright still considers this 'the price worth it.' She never even excused herself for this fascism.
