Iran complained to the United Nations at the end of April about U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s comment the United States could “totally obliterate” Iran in retaliation for a nuclear strike against Israel. Iran’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations sent a letter to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the president of the Security Council expressing Iran’s condemnation of “such a provocative, unwarranted and irresponsible statement.”
Writing recently in the Boston Globe, James Carroll stated: “When Hillary Clinton offers as her solution to the problem of Iran the threat of “obliteration,” she is in a cell of the same moral prison that prefers war to diplomacy. As any neophyte foreign service officer would know, a threat like hers only reinforces the very impulses that make Iran a problem in the first place.”
Imagine the hysterical response if Iran had made such a statement.
In the US election Barack Obama is the Feminist candidate arguing the issues in a fairly dispassionate way, preferring reason, consensus and the common good over power relations. Clinton on the contrary has become so desperate that she will say anything and do anything to keep the Oval Office which her husband besmirched and pimped while he was there (The Lincoln bedroom) and then has so shamelessly abused as a cash cow in his retirement. This power couple breathe entitlement.
Even Richard Nixon and Harry Truman refused to take a dime as ex-presidents believing correctly that they were rewarded enough with a generous pension and the satisfaction of having achieved the pinnacle in serving their country.
The Clintons have become an embarrassment.
One hopes Americans will vote for the feminist candidate.
