“Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton confirmed Monday that as president she would be willing to use nuclear weapons against Iran if it were to launch a nuclear attack on Israel.”
Is this woman insane or just that incredibly desperate to win the nomination? The lack of judgment that allowed Bush to rush headlong into war with Iraq is rearing ignorant head once again. Has Israel ever shown the world that it is incapable of defending itself? What vital interest does Israel have (or protect) that a United States under Hillary Clinton’s leadership(?) would be willing to risk all out nuclear war to protect? She is sounding more and more like George Bush and his America-owns-the- world-and-answers-to-no-one-foreign policy everyday!
Do we really want to elect someone so thoughtless and dare I say, witless again? Don’t we already have such a personage sitting in the Oval Office? I don’t know about you, but I am so very tired of war and killing, and chest thumping; not to mention American arrogance and short-sightedness. Enough already, ENOUGH!
“Clinton said it was vital that the United States create a new “security umbrella” to reassure Israel and its other allies in the region that they would not be threatened by Iran. She said she would tell them that ‘if you were the subject of an unprovoked nuclear attack by Iran, the United States, and hopefully our NATO allies, would respond to that.’”
And note to Hillary: the Europeans have no love for Israel and I doubt very seriously if they would stand behind the U.S. Israel after all is not part of NATO.
