Hillary Clinton threatened to “obliterate” Iran, presumably through a nuclear attack, if Iran attacked Israel.
“I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran,” Senator Clinton told ABC News.
“In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them,” Clinton continued.
She presumably wants to become president for the next 10 years (she might have a constitutional amendment in mind) and she is willing to say that she would launch a nuclear war in the region to get elected.
Clinton’s remarks were the greatest insult to the people of Iran whose collective lives she is willing to sacrifice to win big in Pennsylvania. I believe this type of war-mongering populism should not have a place in the Democratic Party and in this country.
