HILLARY CLINTON THREATENS IRAQ-TYPE WAR AGAINST IRAN

Anti War - Citing the disastrous 2003 US invasion of Iraq as an example, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that by continuing to refuse to abandon its civilian nuclear program, Iran was risking the possibility of an invasion by the US or "some other enemy that would do that to them."

The comments came during an interview on ABC's "This Week" program, and when asked by interviewer and former Clinton-era official George Stephanopoulus, Secretary Clinton reiterated "that's right, as a first strike.". . .

Already six years in, the Iraq occupation has killed thousands of US soldiers, sucked trillions from the American economy, and is stretching the military to its limits.

What was that that Obama said again?

Taken out of context.

She was saying if Iran's motivation for a nuclear program is to deter a first strike against it, it's counterproductive. Not a threat. All options are on the table but Obama- like Bush even- nixed Israeli strikes on Iran in favor of diplomacy.

Re:"Taken out of context" So desiring nuclear weapons becaue of the deterrent such a weapon would offer is counterproductive? Don't tell Israel.
