Senator Hillary Clinton says she has no regrets over her threats to 'totally
obliterate' Iran if Israel is hit with a nuclear bomb.
"Why would I have any regrets?" Senator Clinton said Saturday in response to ABC News' question as to whether she had any regrets about threatening Tehran.
"I am asked a question about what I would do if Iran attacked our ally, a country that many of us have a great deal of, you know, connection with and feeling for," the Democratic hopeful continued.
The former first lady added that she sought to make it 'very clear' for Iranian echelons what to expect if they ever draw up a plan for attacking Israel.
"I sure want to make it abundantly clear to them that they would face a tremendous cost if they did such a thing," Clinton expounded.
Speaking to ABC News on April 22, the 60-year-old Democrat had threatened to attack Iran and 'totally obliterate' it if Tehran were to wage war on Israel in the 'next 10 years'.
Clinton's remarks stirred up fierce controversy both in the US and around the world.
While the recent US National Intelligence Estimate indicates that Iran's nuclear program is not diverting into a military one, it is reputed that with her remarks the senator seeks only to influence public opinion ahead of the nominating showdowns in Indiana and North Carolina.
