At a news conference today with incoming British Foreign Secretary William Hague, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that Iran had “proven” the need for sanctions itself by refusing demands to abandon its civilian nuclear program.
“Every step along the way has demonstrated clearly to the world that Iran is not participating in the international arena in the way that we had asked them to,” Clinton claimed, adding that Iran would not knuckle under to US demands without additional UN Security Council sanctions.
Clinton likewise repeated US opposition to Brazilian President Lula’s effort to negotiate a diplomatic settlement with Iran, insisting it was doomed to failure. Brazil and Turkey, along with China and Lebanon, have voiced opposition to the US sanctions.
The US has repeatedly rejected Iranian calls for additional talks while claiming the lack of those talks as vindication for the sanctions. But despite US claims that the sanctions are close, opposition to them has remained virtually unchanged within the security council.

When is someone going to put this creature in jail?
Jail is too good for here. The best place for her is six feet under.
Iran has done nothing illegal, so any sanctions on Iran are in fact illegal. The CIA still say that there´s no evidence that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons. NO EVIDENCE.
Our State Department diva is grinding on in all the old conditioned reflexes from the cold war and all the delusions that the world is going to hop, skip and jump when she snaps her fingers,
when more and more it is singing "It Ain't Me Babe, It Ain't Me."
Oh, what's the matter Little Hil? Did the big bad, Iranian bully not give you your ball? Did he give you a wedgie in gym class? An Nuclear Indian Burn? ( oooh!)
Seriously when are these idiots gonna grow the fuck up?
"Iran is not participating in the international arena the way we asked them to." Well there you go. Madam SecState is going to pitch the histrionic fit on account of Iran won't do what Clinton asked them to. Oh bulls*@t. Iran is in compliance with the NPT and that's all Iran needs do. Gosh, Iran isn't warring on any nation. Killing horrific numbers of innocents. Somebody ask Madam SecState about that Israeli apartheid and Israeli nuclear weapons. Clinton acts like the pissed off school marm and rather churlish one at that.
Iran IS IN compliance with the NPT and IAEA. It's the WARMONGER trouble makers in Israel that are beating the war drums.
Ah yes, Iran cannot prove a NEGATIVE. So, sanctions are "deserved." Why doesn't Clinton just admit that NOTHING Iran does will steer the U.S. away from ultimately attacking Iran?
1- Although every one knows and in regard to all the facts Iran is complying with all the rules and obligations toward IAE and NPT yet Hillary Clinton seams don’t want to understand this fact, perhaps she needs to rise her voice again and again because her campaign contributions payment are due and it is not the Iranian who is going to help her pay back the money owed, in the other hand her husband Bill Clinton is on the road again asking.., as many times before.., asking people who are sided with his and her idea regarding Yugoslavia, Iraq and now Iran for money. Eventually these people will pay her owed money in time, meanwhile they need to be sure that the war drum is up and sounding and that Clinton family is yet proving that their moral, political and social commitment is toward Israel and that Israel is the only friend that US will ever have in Middle East, that Israel is the boss and needs to be protected by all means, even if its cost another few million life.
2- Madeline Albright when asked about the Iraqis newborn babies dying due to US and Europe embargo said, “is worth the price”. If you think that Hillary Clinton is not Madeline Albright or Clinton family is not following Paul Wolfowitz suppression idea in world domination by first bombing a country to death and then rebuilding it…, as US and Europeans government have done to Iraq…,then you are did wrong. My question to Hillary is this: as a secretary of stats department what are you going to do about the crime of mercenaries as Ex – Balckwater “security” company done and still operating in Iraq and Pakistan where State department is paying for their crime.., when in time you are going to ask the justice department preparing the case against Prince and prosecute the company for act against humanity and killing of innocent people, when you are going to stop such inhuman acts toward nations whom don’t agree with your foreign policies, because last I checked American people disagree with what you are doing. Unless you are afraid or to some degree beneficial in what Prince and his mercenaries are doing
then off course you wouldn’t dare to act upon him or what they have done or doing.
What's the use of bitching anymore about the bitch. The inevitable is going to happen and no one can do shit about it.

The great thing about an attack on Iran is that it will be the straw that breaks the imperial camel's back. I will view Iranians as fighting not only for their freedom, but also for the freedom of Americans that are oppressed by the United States government.
When gas is $10 a gallon, it is going to be real interesting to see how any imperial politician can keep the ship of state afloat.
Our government and its police state are enemies of freedom and the people. We need a revolution in this country.
Most of our problems would come to an end if only we would end the Federal Reserve.
Before we went to war with Iraq, the press continually spouted off the lies on a daily basis to demonise the Iraqi government. Now we know it was just lies. They are playing the same game now hoping to falsely sway as many Americans as possible. You know she is just obeying her Isreali masters. Iran bad – Isreal good. We need to separate ourselves from that parasite before it kills us! It might be too late. Sad, very sad.
I'd say Obama and Hillary are less gung-ho about war-making as their legacy than was the vicious dunce, George W. However both parties, in their egomania, don't like to be talked back to. World's only superpower and all that. Ahmadinejad is in the habit of talking back and pointing out the flaws in their logic. This could mean that Israel will eventually get its way (as usual) and it will be bombs away.
Hillary is merely spewing the usual agitprop for the retards in the homeland.
This witch is really toxic. She refuses to be outdone, especially by the Israeli-American criminals such as Perle, Wolfowitz, and others. When the dust settles, will Americans have the guts to lay the blame where it belongs?
