Forget Right Or Left: Hillary Clinton Once Said She Would “Totally Obliterate” Iran (Video)
Editor’s Note: I do disagree that this is not about politics. A lot of the things we are told are “national security” and “security of our allies” are all about politics. In fact, it was H.L. Mencken who said, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” Sadly, the American people have learned nothing, no matter if it’s Democrats beating war drums or Republicans.
“WHATEVER STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT THEY MIGHT BE IN THEIR NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS DURING WHICH THEY MAY FOOLISHLY CONSIDER LAUNCHING AN ATTACK ON ISRAEL, WE WOULD BE ABLE TO TOTALLY OBLITERATE THEM.” –HILLARY CLINTON
When President Trump decides to counter an attack on an American embassy, leftists are up in arms.
But look above to what their failed 2016 Presidential candidate once said.
National security and security of our allies is not about politics.
It is about American interests and global justice.
More from Breitbart:
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton warned in 2008 that she was prepared to “obliterate” Iran if it produced a nuclear weapon and promised to retaliate if the country launched a nuclear attack on Israel.
Clips of Clinton’s rhetoric resurfaced after social media users protested President Donald Trump’s decision to kill Iranian Quds force commander Qasem Soleimani which resulted in retaliatory airstrikes from Iran on Tuesday night.
But Clinton may have forgotten her own hawkish rhetoric during the 2008 primary.
Ahead of the Pennsylvania Democratic primary that April, Hillary Clinton was asked by Good Morning America what she would do if Israel was attacked by Iran.
“If Iran were to launch a nuclear attack on Israel, what would our response be?” Clinton said in an interview with then-host Chris Cuomo. “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran. That’s what we will do. There is no safe haven.”
She also warned that if Iran developed a nuclear weapon, the United States had the power to “totally obliterate” the country.
“Whatever stage of development they might be in their nuclear weapons program in the next 10 years during which they may foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them,” she said.
She admitted that her comment was “terrible” but said it was important to “deter” Iran from attacking Israel.
At the time, Sen. Barack Obama criticized Clinton for sounding like a warmonger.
“It’s not the language we need right now, and I think it’s language reflective of George Bush,” Obama said in an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press afterwards.
Of course Obama, in his infinite wisdom, scolded Hillary and went on to lay out the red carpet for Iran.

Don’t forget to throw Jimmy Carter into that nest.
Why is Trump really wrong in the eyes of the left?
It’s all politics.
