Nuke This *itch!
Maybe she was just joking. But I don’t think so. I think she was trying to be tough. But let’s think about this for a second. Iran doesn’t have a single nuclear weapon, Israel does, so who would be the likely aggressor here? Who seems to ALWAYS be the aggressor? That’s right, our buddy, Israel.
So what if Iran has no nukes. Iraq didn’t have any weapons of mass destruction either, (if they did we never found them), and we made a bloody mess over there didn’t we? What bio-weapons and WMDs Saddam had, WE GAVE HIM! That’s right, the United States of America GAVE THEM TO HIM. So of course we knew he had them, at one time…
So, so what if Iran has no nukes, we’ve done it before, there’s precedence, the world will get over it and if not, we’ll send someone like cheney over there to <sarc> talk </sarc> to them… Ya, that’s a great plan…
On primary election day in Pennsylvania, even with polls showing her well ahead in that state, Hillary went lower in her grab for votes. Seizing upon a question as to how she would respond to a nuclear attack by Iran, which doesn’t have nuclear weapons, on Israel, which does, Hillary mocked reasoned discourse by promising to “totally obliterate them,” in an apparent reference to the population of Iran. That is not a word gaffe; it is an assertion of the right of our nation to commit genocide on an unprecedented scale.
Now, in looking up articles to support this information I found quite a few, but the most interesting by far was one from an Arab paper online. The details were much better than any I’d seen on the American side of things. It is a sad day when the news is better somewhere else in the world than here at home. However, maybe that is just because it had to do with threatening an Arab nation???
So, here from the ArabTimesOnline is the following article:
WASHINGTON (Agencies): Democratic presidential candidate 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),” Clinton said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them,” she said. “That’s a terrible thing to say but those people who run Iran need to understand that because that perhaps will deter them from doing something that would be reckless, foolish and tragic,” Clinton said. Her comments appeared harder than a week ago, when during a presidential debate she promised “massive retaliation” against any Iranian attack on Israel. Obama rejected her rhetoric as saber rattling on a day when Pennsylvania Democrats voted in a party primary contest that could help decide which Democrat will face Republican John McCain for the White House in the November general election.
I think this is truly frightening and unforgivable for a candidate to even think this way. In this day and age, knowing that Israel is, more often than not, the aggressor, it is wrong of the USA to even consider this. For a candidate to spout this kind of rhetoric smacks of incompetence from the git go!
I will say it again, none of these candidates deserve to be voted into office. They are irresponsible and more of the same we’ve had for the past 8 years! We don’t need that at all. It is outrageous knowing that Iran has no nuclear weapons she opens her mouth in such a way as this truly shows just how incompetent she is. She knows full well that Tehran has no nuclear weapons, is not developing them, and has no intention of developing them.
It only goes to prove that this woman is insane! It is beyond belief that she would say something this foolish and irresponsible not only in an interview, but on national TV. I suppose she thinks she is being tough, I think she is being moronic.
How dare she do this? And how could any responsible, conscious, thinking, human being even consider this? After bombing hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese she claims she would do this? As the death toll mounts in Iraq for the sake of lies and oil, she could speak so cavalierly about nuking an innocent country? How many innocent lives will be snuffed out in an instant? Lives that may not even agree with the leaders of that country that are so hot for a nuclear war? Husbands, Fathers, Wives, Mothers, Daughters, Sons, Grandchildren, gone in less than a heartbeat! And those that are left, endless suffering and more death. And this is even a consideration?
The people of Iran are innocent victims just as the Iraqi people are. They have done no evil, they have not hurt Americans. They have not harmed us in any way! It is we who are planning and plotting, we who are the terrorists, we who are becoming criminals. And I resent having MY name attached to these or any other statements like this. And you should think about what your name is being attached to. Because if you vote for this person, you are agreeing with their policies. You are supporting them even when they are wrong, dead wrong. And in this case, there is a lot of dead wrong…
Why, why isn’t diplomacy on the table anywhere? Why is everyone speaking in terms of nuclear war when there is talking to do first? When did America become the ENFORCER? Why in the hell are we so afraid to talk?
What gives the United States the right to say that no nation is free of our nuclear weapons? By what right do we have to threaten an entire world? Because, let’s face it, with this statement to a country that doesn’t possess nuclear weapons, that’s exactly what we are saying. Under no conditions should the United States of America threaten another Nation with these weapons before talks have been completed. That is total irresponsibility!
I, at one time, had hopes for the first woman to seriously seek the White House. But this finishes this woman in my book. You may think she is tough, I think she is disgusting. If nothing else, genocide is morally and ethically wrong. And I for one and sick and tired of those who deem human life so cheap.
She has NO right. The United States of American has no right. And Israel has NO RIGHT! Nuke this Bitch! And may God have mercy on your soul!
