Hillary found wanting

The question put recently to Hillary Clinton should have been: "What would your response be as President knowing the United States attacked two defenceless countries?
Would you apologise profusely; call for the immediate withdrawal of troops; pay both countries full reparation costs; and, instead of paying lip-service to glorious ideals, actually work for the betterment of all people in the world from this time forward?"
What we got was a ridiculous question in the context of a ridiculous scenario which played on the fears of an American public for the sole purpose of legitimising a possible future attack on Iran, which would be enacted solely for economic gain and with nothing whatsoever to do with human rights or bringing democracy and freedom to the region, or any other of that dribble we're taught to accept as genuine US intentions.
