Clinton's awful response

Hillary Clinton's reply to the question of how she would respond if Iran launched a nuclear attack on Israel – "…if I'm the president, we will attack Iran…we would be able to totally obliterate them" – (your report, 23 April) I found to be mind-bendingly horrific and colossally stupid. What is equally disturbing about her response is that it was delivered during an election campaign, so, presumably, she reckons that this is what the American people want to hear and is

I have always believed the special relationship between Israel and the United States has been the greatest barrier to a solution of the many problems that assail that benighted region. Mrs Clinton's statement only serves to reinforce my belief.
