I’m no fan of Hillary Clinton, but for once, Clinton has gotten something right: if Iran attacks Israel, we could and should launch an offensive to completely destroy the Islamic Republic. From the Times Online:
“Hillary Clinton today threatened to “obliterate” Iran if it launched a nuclear attack on Israel, her most aggressive rhetoric yet against Tehran as she seeks to cast doubts on whether Barack Obama would be a strong commander-in-chief.”
Now, lets be clear, neither Hillary nor Obama has any credibility when compared to John McCain, not only because both lack military experience, but because both have only taken anything close to a hawkish position when it was politically convenient.
All that said, it is good to know that, at the very least, Hillary wouldn’t Iran get away with any attacks on our allies. Iran has to know that for every bullet it points at Israel, it has a missile pointed at Tehran. If I were forced to choose which Democrat I would want as President, I’d have to say Clinton – she is not anything close to good, but she is much better than Barack “meet with our enemies” Obama, who, at the current rate, would be little more than the second incarnation of Jimmy Carter, another failed liberal who created a mess in the middle east and refused to stand up to terrorists.
