If Iran attacks Israel with the use of nuclear weapons, the United States will destroy Iran completely, presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton stated in her recent interview with ABC channel.
"I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran," Clinton said. "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.
Hillary Clinton released such a harsh statement responding to a question from the TV host, who wondered what Hillary Clinton would do, if Iran attacked Israel with the use of nuclear weapons.
Iranian and Israeli officials have released harsh statements against each other on many occasions claiming that none of the countries will tolerate even an iota of aggression. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert particularly stated that Israel could conduct a military operation against Iran, if the latter was not going to shut down its nuclear developments.
Teheran threatened to destroy Israel in case of any aggression on its part. Deputy commander of the Iranian Army, Mohammad Reza Ashtiani, stated last week that Iran had serious reasons to defend its borders.
“We have to defend our borders and we are ready to eliminate Israel from the world map if they take action against Iran,'' the official said.
