Vote for Hillary Clinton, No Thank You!

So I was doing research for a school paper, and I ran into this interesting link on Google. The page is titled: "Senator Clinton's Remarks to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)." This is straight from Hillary Clinton's Senate website, and is dated February 1, 2007. This speech pretty much sums up what to except in terms of her foreign policy if elected President, so if you want the United States to move towards peace around the world in the next few years, you might want to start looking at another candidate.

Her comments about Iran sound like they came from Fox News or some other right-wing nut case:
"Israel is a beacon of what's right in a neighborhood overshadowed by the wrongs of radicalism, extremism, despotism and terrorism. We need only look to one of Israel's greatest threats: namely, Iran. Make no mistake, Iran poses a threat not only to Israel, but to the entire Middle East and beyond, including the U.S."

She also mentions that the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has:
"...called for Israel to be wiped off the map."

To this day, I still have not seen the evidence that he has said that. If someone has a transcript of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech using that line, please post it in the comments. More on Iran:

"But Iran is a threat not only because of the hateful rhetoric spewed by its president, not only because of its nuclear ambitions, but because it uses its influence and its revenues in the region to support terrorist elements that are attacking innocent Israelis; and now we believe attacking American soldiers. Hezbollah's attacks on Israel this summer using Iranian weapons clearly demonstrate Iran's malevolent influence even beyond its borders."

It sure seems like someone wants a war with Iran badly (and I'm not talking about William Kristol).
