Message to Hillary Clinton: For the sake of the victims, enough with the ‘resets’ already

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

For the Sake of the Victims of Tyranny, No More "Resets"

There's been a lot of coverage regarding former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's "newfound" view to "reset" relations with the Castro regime.

However, there's barely been any coverage about her tenure at the State Department, during which time she consistently displayed poor judgement in "resetting" relations with tyrants.

As regards Syria, Hillary infamously believed that Bashar al-Assad was a "reformer" that the U.S. could work with.

Since then, Assad has led a genocide with a tally of over 160,000 victims.

As regards Burma, Hillary engaged its military dictatorship, traveled to the Southeast Asian nation and led the push to prematurely lift sanctions.

Since then, Burma's military dictatorship has reaped a financial windfall, retrenched on reforms and re-intensified its repression.

As regards Iran, Hillary ignored pleas for help from the "Green Movement," bitterly fought Congress against sanctions from 2009-2013 and pushed for talks with the mullahs.

Since then, Iran' regime brutally suppressed the democracy movement. Yet, in an interesting twist, Clinton now seeks to rewrite history and take credit for the sanctions she fought against and -- as talks flounder -- she's suddenly skeptical.

As regards Russia, Hillary literally pressed a "reset" button in order to "start fresh" bilateral relations.

Since then... Well, we all know how that's turned out.

And now, Clinton wants to lift sanctions and "reset" relations with Cuba.

This has drawn criticism from Cuba's Ladies in White and other democracy activists. And judging from Hillary's record -- for good reason.

Madam Secretary, for the sake of the victims of tyranny -- please step away from the "reset" buttons.
