Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska), Republican vice presidential nominee, understands foreign affairs much better than the Democratic presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and certainly much better than the Saturday Night Live foreign policy think tank headed by Tina Fey.
When asked by CBS' perky interviewer Katie Couric to further explain her previously stated remarks that the US should not second guess Israel if Israel were to strike Iran, Palin stressed:
"We shouldn’t second-guess Israel's security efforts because we cannot ever afford to send a message that we would allow a second Holocaust," Palin said. "They are our closest ally in the Middle East and they need us we need them and we shouldn't second-guess them."
Palin said the United States would naturally consult with Israel on such matters, but added that it was Israel's right "to fight against a regime like Iran who would seek to wipe them off the earth."
She added: "It is obvious to me who are the good guys and who are the bad guys."
