Hillary Rodham Clinton, claims that the US could totally obliterate” Iran in retaliation for a nuclear strike against Israel. This comment may sound insignificant just as the ‘bomb Iran’ song of John McCain.
My understanding is that Ahmadinejad’s comments on Israel (the wipe Israel off the world’s map..) was taken very seriously by the Western politicians and media and clearly blown out of proportion. However; Ahmadinejad does not represent Iranians, he only represents the bunch of fanatics ‘runing’ Iran now. We shouldn’t be too surprised if someone like him makes ludicrous comments like those, but Hillary ‘Rodham’ Clinton and John McCain are considered to be well educated and experienced individuals that may run a country like the United States. Therefore there’s something wrong with this whole picture. Using such a hostile language seems fine for ‘Rodhams’ and McCains but not for Ahmadinejads. Sometimes such comments by Western politicians are dismissed and played down with an ‘uppsss!!’ but Ahmadinejad comments become ‘imminent threat’. Now, if Iran had ever used atomic weapons against another nations, I’d be very concerned with Ahmadienjad’s comments about Israel, just as I’m very concerned with ‘Hillary Rodham Clinton’ comments about ‘obliterating Iran’. After all the US has used its atomic bombs elsewhere, not once but twice! In all fairness, there’re times I find Ahmadinejd as being wiser than some freak like ‘Rodham’ and I don’t like Ahmadinejad.
