Word for the day: obliterate

This is exactly the kind of rhetoric that scares the hell out of me about Hilary.

This morning on the BBC News website:

Speaking in Indiana, Mrs Clinton said she had no regrets about promising to "totally obliterate" Iran if it attacked Israel with nuclear weapons - a scenario that was put to her two weeks ago.

"Why would I have any regrets?" she asked on ABC television.

"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."

That's the same kind of cowboy blanket statement George used to make, and look where that got us. Time to change the record, people!
