Clinton: US could ‘totally obliterate’ Iran if it attacks Israel

This is according to Reuters

Hillary Clinton warned Tehran on Tuesday that if she were president, the United States could "totally obliterate" Iran in retaliation for a nuclear strike against Israel.

On the day of a crucial vote in her nomination battle against fellow Democrat Barack Obama, the New York senator said she wanted to make clear to Tehran what she was prepared to do as president in hopes that this warning would deter any Iranian nuclear attack against the Jewish state.

"I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran (if it attacks Israel).

Obama says he would respond "forcefully and swiftly" to an Iranian attack against Israel or any other U.S. ally, whether conventional or nuclear.

Neither one of these approaches is of any comfort.....more unbelievable rhetoric that serves to do nothing but provoke a worsening of the situation in the Middle East.

Israel doesn't need the US as a back up. Israel can blow Iran into next year all by itself.

What's important is that it never comes to pass, Shrillary.

Hi Mary Ann,
You're right it needs to never come to pass. I just wish we The US would stop the blustering, it serves no purpose.
