Just under three years ago, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted by the Islamic Republic News Agency as agreeing with the notion that Israel "should be wiped off the map." Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has announced via ABC "Good Morning America" that she would respond to an Iranian assault on Israel by obliterating their country. "In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them." Not surprisingly, the Iranians are protesting her commentary, and Iran’s UN ambassador issued a statement "to reiterate my government’s position that the Islamic Republic of Iran has no intention to attack any other nations."
