Hillary: ‘I Will Not Hesitate to Take Military Action if Iran’ Tries Building a Nuke

‘— And I will set up my successor to be able to credibly make the same pledge’

"As president, I will take whatever actions are necessary to protect the United States and our allies, I will not hesitate to take military action if Iran attempts to obtain a nuclear weapon and I will set up my successor to be able to credibly make the same pledge. We will make clear to Iran that our national commitment to prevention will not waver depending on who is in office. It’s permanent. And should it become necessary in the future having exhausted peaceful alternatives to turn to military force, we will have preserved and in some cases enhanced our capacity to act. And because we’ve proven our commitment to diplomacy first the world will more likely join us. Then there is the broader issue of countering Iran’s bad behavior.”
