A graphic illustration of ‘smart power’ in action


Smart power is the essence of the Hilliary Clinton foreign policy, the execution of coups and pother acts of deep politics through the application of coercive force through the use of indigenous opposition forces or through the application of economic extortion.

If you want to see smart power in action, you needn’t cast your gaze on Libya and Syria, where Hillary’s ploys as secretary of state have erupted in violence that’s now crossed the Atlantic.

No, just look closer to home, where the U.S. has been playing the smart power game for a century, most recently under the auspices of institutions like the Central Intelligence Agency, the Agency for International Development, and the National Endowment for Democracy.
