Security risk Clinton: What speaks in favour of Trump

Is there at least one single reason to hope for a victory of Donald Trump? Yes: Peace. Hillary Clinton wants to risk the military confrontation with Russia in the Syria war. Germany cannot want that.

A column by Jakob Augstein

An argument for Trump? Inconceivable. The disapproval of this man is common knowledge. He is the devil of politics. Even with the wolf from Grimm’s fairy-tails it would be easier to find any advantages than with the mad narcissistic from New York. Only one point is overlooked in it, and that is one, which is in truth the most important for every non-American: Trump would probably be the better choice than Clinton in the question of war and peace.

The civil war in Syria is the most dangerous conflict of the world. The USA, Russia, Iran, Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia – all are involved. All pursue their own interests. And Hillary Clinton of all people wants to risk the military confrontation with Russia. Clinton has explicitly expressed herself for it, to establish an air prohibitive zone over Syria, or parts of it. In this way, so Clinton’s plan, the suffering of the civil population persecuted by the war is to be, if not removed, so still to be relieved. That sounds like a project of peace. In truth is would be an act of war. The risks are incalculable. Above all the risk of a military conflict with Russia.

Risk? The highest soldier of the United States of America, General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the united staff of the armed forces of the United States, is certain. To control the entire air space over Syria would mean war with Syria and Russia. Dunford’s predecessor in the office estimated a few years ago that an affective air prohibitive zone over Syria would mean the deployment of 70,000 soldiers and monthly costs in the region of a billion dollars.

But Hillary is undeterred. "When I was foreign minister, I was for an air prohibitive zone, and I am still today for it," Clinton has said just a few days ago. And so that no-one could have doubts of it, how she meant that, she added: "We need a lever against the Russians."

Donald Trump has made greatest efforts to prove his unsuitability for the office of US president. But what concerns war and peace, his record is clean. Trump, as far as he has hinted at any foreign politics concept at all, wants to rather keep America out of the haggling of the world, on no account involve it deeper.

But to the majority of Germans the thought of an armed conflict between the USA and Russia should chase a shudder of fear down the back. Nevertheless – if the Germans would have to decide, there would be no doubt about the triumph of the Democrat. Strange. How can it be that the German public ignores this real danger of a Clinton victory?

The reason being that Trump’s candidacy is so shrill that too many people do not perceive the signal, which she really is. Hillary Clinton is exactly that product of the American political establishment, which Trump and his followers see in her. She enjoys the reputation in Europe to stand for foreign political calculability and continuity.

But that means exactly also that she would continue the devastating American foreign politics of military interventions in the truest sense of the word.

Indeed, Donald Trump is a farce. But he points out that already a long time the West overtaxes itself with the look at the crises of this world – morally, militarily, politically.
