Disinfo: Hillary Clinton is a “warmonger” 

Summary

Hillary Clinton is a “warmonger” which is demonstrated through her alleged quote: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president we will attack Iran and we could obliterate all Iranians.” She put Victoria Nuland in the ministry of foreign affairs so that she could organize the US coup in Ukraine.

Disproof

Hillary Clinton said this in 2009 as a response to a question how she would handle Iran if it used nuclear weapons against Israel.

The claim about the organised coup in Ukraine is a conspiracy theory without evidence and a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative.

Disproof

Neither the US nor other NATO members have intentions to attack Russia.  NATO's decision to increase its military presence in the Eastern part of the Alliance is a response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine. See here for more information.
