Let's not forget that Hillary Clinton-espoused Republican ideals started this debacle.
"Hillary Clinton will destroy the whole world... Look at her nation building in the Middle East! ...How successful that has been!"
"I like Bernie Sanders."
Faber is likely not joking about Hillary Clinton destroying the whole world, given Clinton's record of repeating past foreign policy mistakes, including support for the overthrow of Qaddafi in Libya and continued support for CIA operations to overthrow Assad in Libya. The power vacuum of Assad leaving power would likely lead to chaos and displacement of millions more around Damascus.
In her book, Clinton spoke fondly of her close relationship with Henry Kissinger, a ruthless statesman that many consider a war criminal. According to Mother Jones, "her bond with Kissinger was personal as well as professional, as she and her husband have for years regularly spent their winter holidays with Kissinger and his wife, Nancy, at the beachfront villa of fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who died in 2014, and his wife, Annette, in the Dominican Republic."

Defends regime change
"I don't think that China is as big a problem as we all say. In fact,
I'm sometimes amused because we designate China and Russia as our enemies. Now, why do we do that? I'm not sure. Is that because of the power that the Hillary Clintons and the business people behind her want?
Is China really our enemy or are we making them our enemy? Do we really believe that if China has possession of a little island in the China Sea that that's going to prevent the world from running boats to do trading with China? I don't think so.
Financial interests of Hillary Clinton:
In the eyes of Hillary Clinton, hawkish foreign policy advisors and intelligence agencies, China oil access in the Spratly Islands might someday threaten Saudi security and the global economy.
"Oil companies never pay any taxes and they have something called depletion. Oil companies... Exxon is really a country. Don't even think of it as a company. It's a country and it behaves like a country, a power hungry country." –Asher Edelman
In the end, U.S. aggression protects financial interests of Big Oil, military industry, and arms sales more than the it does the security of the average American citizen.
