Well, not really:
Clinton further displayed tough talk in an interview airing on Good Morning America Tuesday, ABC News’ Chris Cuomo asked Clinton what she would do if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons.
“I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president we will attack Iran,” Clinton said. “In the next ten years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”
“We would be able to” is a bit different then “we will” but she is obviously trying to show that against McCain she can at least hold her own in the national security arena whereas Obama can’t. Its pandering to the Kennedy blues…..and between the Obama and herself, she’s right. But in no way would anyone expect her to actually order the obliteration of Iran if they attacked Israel. But at least she may send a few missiles their way. Obama would give them a strong talking to.
This threat comes on the heels of Obama running like a little girl from the NC debate….pretty good timing.
