In her interview last night with Charles Gibson, Sarah Palin clearly showed that she would not oppose Israel if it decided to attack Iran, and thereby drag the United States into yet another war . . . even a likely World War III.

Here are the exact words, as reported by Fox News at http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/09/11/raw-data-palins-interview-with-abc-news/#comment-659260

GIBSON: Let me turn to Iran. Do you consider a nuclear Iran to be an existential threat to Israel?

PALIN: I believe that under the leadership of Ahmadinejad, nuclear weapons in the hands of his government are extremely dangerous to everyone on this globe, yes.

GIBSON: So, what should we do about a nuclear Iran?

PALIN: We have got to make sure these weapons of mass destruction, that nuclear weapons are not given to those hands of Ahmadinejad, not that he would use them, but that he would allow terrorists to be able to use them. So we have got to put the pressure on Iran.

GIBSON: What if Israel decided it felt threatened and need to take out the Iranian nuclear facilities?

PALIN: Well, first, we are friends of Israel, and I don’t think that we should second guess the measures that Israel has to take to defend themselves, and for their security.

GIBSON: So if we didn’t second guess it and if they decided they needed to do it, because Iran was an existential threat, we would be cooperative or agree with that?

PALIN: I don’t think we can second guess what Israel has to do to secure its nation.

GIBSON: So if it felt necessary, if it felt the need to defend itself by taking out Iranian nuclear facilities, that would be all right?

PALIN: We cannot second guess the steps that Israel has to take to defend itself.

"We cannot second guess the steps that Israel has to take to defend itself."

NOTE: She gave the same answer three times to three slightly different versions of the question, without actually agreeing to the precise words which were asked. By avoiding the exact question, she was able to reframe the question and provide a less chilling, more reasonable-sounding answer.

But sadly, the truth is that she would allow  -- without "second guessing"  -- Israel to drag us into a likely World War III, without even trying to stop it.
