For some reason, people keep putting this buffoon on TV
In a discussion on the August 4 edition of CNN Newsroom, Hill attacked Israel’s Iron Dome system, seemingly lamenting the fact that it has limited Israeli deaths, leading to the disproportionate outcome of the war liberals so often mention. He absurdly claimed:
But what the Iron Dome does is it also takes away all of Hamas’s military leverage which is very different than say, 10 years ago or 15 years in other wars like Lebanon, et cetera. As a result, it serves a defensive purpose but de facto serves an offensive purpose. It allows Israel to essentially assault and siege Gaza without any retribution or response on the other side. So again, to some extent, they are not just funding defense, they are funding an offensive war and ultimately an occupation. That for me, is the problem.
In short, it seems Hill objects to U.S. taxpayer funding of Iron Dome because it “serves an offensive purpose” by limiting the ability of the Islamist terror network Hamas to slaughter Israeli citizens in “retribution.” Hill misses the point about military conflicts: the ultimate goal is to win and at the same time limit civilian casualties on your own side.
Hill is a classic example of someone who is educated beyond their hat size. The man has no common sense, no wisdom, he has nothing but a perverse desire for “equality”. In this case it is, apparently, an equality of casualties
