ANNE MILLER: Yeah, over the weekend Senator Clinton spoke in Berlin, Concord and Keene, and there were members of our community who were attending obviously all of those events. I went to hear Senator Clinton speak in Concord and was not called on during the meeting, but afterwards approached the Senator and asked her about the comments that she had made at the AIPAC meeting earlier in the week and asked her if she really would leave all options on the table and how could she threaten, in effect, other countries’ children with nuclear genocide. She looked me right in the eye, and she said, “No options are off the table. We cannot abide by a nuclear-armed Iran. It would be an existential threat to the United States.”
And what I found really interesting in that comment, in that use of the word “existential,” is that isn’t a word that’s used very much in US political discourse, but it is used in Israel’s political discourse. And that’s of deep concern to me that we have a Democratic presidential candidate who is a militarist of this nature and that she isn’t coming out and saying we need strong diplomatic action with Iran, which is really the only answer. There are no military solutions with respect to Iran that I can see. (emphasis added).
As long as Senator Clinton leaves the unprovoked use of nuclear weapons against an essentially defenseless nation on the table, she’s off mine. In no way, shape, or form is Iran a threat to the existence of the United States.
Weak Democrats who use threats of force to make themselves look strong are even more dangerous than crackpot, Armaggedon Republicans.
So send Chelsea, Senator Clinton. Or volunteer to fight your %$#*ing war against Iran yourself.
