Iran Denounces Hillary's 'Obliterate' Comments

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of

Iran is denouncing Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for threatening to “obliterate” the nation and is filing a formal protest over her comments.

Mehdi Danesh-Yazdi called Clinton’s remarks “provocative, unwarranted and irresponsible” and a “flagrant violation” of the U.N Charter in a letter sent to the U.N Security Council, according to the Associated Press.

These actions come after Clinton told ABC News she would take military action against Iran if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons. "I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran," Clinton said. "In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them."

Danesh-Yazdi’s letter said "Iran is a leading nation in rejecting and opposing all kinds of weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons” and described "nuclear weapons as the most lethal and inhumane weapons have no place in the defense doctrine of the country."

Iran’s protest is slightly undermined by the fact Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated he didn’t believe Clinton would ever be elected. At a stop in New Delhi on Tuesday, he said, “Presidency of a woman in a country that boasts its gunmanship is unlikely.”

Ahmadinejad said he didn’t think Clinton’s Democratic rival, Barack Obama, would be elected either. He asked, “Do you think a black candidate would be allowed to be president in the U.S.?"

"We don't think Mr. Obama will be allowed to become the U.S. president,” he said.
