Ahead of a crucial primary in Pennsylvania, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said if she were president and Israel was attacked by Iran with nuclear weapons, the US would "totally obliterate" Iran.

"In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them," Clinton said in an interview for ABC's Good Morning America.

Clinton's opponent Barack Obama accused her of sabre-rattling, saying this was the kind of language that had been used by the Bush administration over the last years.

Iran does not have nuclear weapons and insists that its uranium enrichment programme, which sparks Israel's fierce protests, is purely for civilian purposes.

In support to your argument:
How about the Six Day War in 1967? Israel many to mention. LOL

Super Mario,

You are proof that anyone can say anything on the net and not have a clue!!
"The military manpower of Iran is 11 million."
130,000 regular troops and 220,000 conscripts does not add up to 11 million. The Iraqi army numbered 955,000 before the gulf war and were defeated in a few days. I think you do not have any idea what the US Army is capable of doing and I hope you never find out!

What was the name of the country Clinton invaded?
Oh, thats right! It was NATO and there where quite a few Germans, Canadians etc. involved! NATO, you remember tham? Bulgarians where so mad at NATO for attacking Serbia, they joined!!

That being said, I do agree that the US should stay out of all countries problems, period!!

Bush and Clinton already had a chance in office. What Bill Clinton was you can only expect what Hillary Clinton will be. Barack Obama seems to have the best view on inner works and not concerned about going to war with other countries. Hillary is not in office and she is talkin about "Obliterating" Iran, I'm just curious where these funds and soldiers would come from to fight the war. The United States military manpower is 2 million, as much as the people in prisons in the United States. The military manpower of Iran is 11 million. With the war in Iraq still going on and planned to go on for years ahead, I wonder what exactly she meant by the term obliteration.
