Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has conceded that there is a “very serious” split with Brazil over the third party enrichment deal on Iran, saying it is her belief that Iran will only negotiate once the sanctions are in place.
The hypocrisy of the US position, and the absurdity of Clinton’s claims considering Brazil and Turkey just finished negotiating successfully with Iran is not lost on either nation, and both have taken the US and other members of the P5+1 to task for their sudden opposition to diplomacy.
“Who are they to tlak against the idea of having nuclear weapons,” Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan asked. The five permanent members of the UN Security Council all have significant nuclear weapons arsenals.
Tensions with Brazil have been even chippier, as Secretary Clinton accused Brazil of “making the world more dangeorus” by trying to come to a deal with Iran, a claim which Brazilian President Lula responded angrily to, saying the arsenals of the US and others were the real danger.
The deal negotiated by Brazil and Turkey was materially identical to the one the Obama Administration had been demanding Iran sign since October. Now that Iran has signed it, the US has expressed vigorous opposition to the deal.
In fact, not only is the US now fighting the deal, they seem to be angrily fighting Turkey and Brazil, two nations whose only crime is trying to convince Iran to agree to the deal the Obama Administration claimed to have wanted all along.

the USA has ALWAYS been and ALWAYS will be the greatest threat to world peace…they are THE MOST hypocritical and war -mongering nation.[next to Israel ..] [same thing]….but what do you expect.?…their economy is based on supplying arms and all that goes along with war ..they are going to keep war[s] going iin as many countries as possible ..AND will demonize Iran to please and kiss Israel's ass….no wonder they are hated all over the world..NOTHING has changed with Obama…same old ..same old …
America's No.1 Welfare Queen calling the shots on this one…!
Sane peace loving people everywhere on the planet should know who the real enemy is…
The US and Israel have been caught very off-guard and don't know how to handle this sane solution except by threatining as they always do.
The US government, most of its institutions, think tanks and, of course, the military and the Pentagon are slaved to Israel and its geopolitical ambitions. The US does not have a foreign policy.
The US doesn't want a peaceful solution. Obviously.
Madam SecState Crazy Lady concedes to a "very serious" split with Brazil and Turkey. Yup. Brazil and Turkey are serious and Madam SecState is simply crazy. Is the Obama aware how utterly ridiculous Clinton appears?
The World is waking up Ms Clinton.Thye don't give a F* hoot to your belief. They give to your F* action.
Showing its displeasure with what it sees as an overly independent ally, the US Congress today, with only five abstentions, passed a resolution renaming Brazil Nuts "New American Century Nuts."
In an associated resolution, "Turkish Delight" was rechristened "Afghan Surprise".
I just hope Lula and Erdogan will stick to their guns and not back down to US pressure. I would post more about what I think of our Sec. of State, but it would almost certainly have to be deleted.
Very droll – you are kidding, aren’t you?
Next week should be exciting when Obama meets Netanyahou. I wish they would drop all pretense and just have Bibbi drop trousers and Obama kiss his fat ass in public on behalf of all American citizens. After this tip-off, Hillary can have the ball(s).
What's next? Is Hillary going to require her Brazilian and Turkish counterparts to join hands with her, sing Hava Nagila and dance the hora before meetings?
If this doesn't prove to people that the U.S. is negotiating with Iran in bad faith, I don't know what will.
Iran had to be the moment where someone, somewhere in the world stood up and stopped appeasing US hegemonist aggression. I was beginning to lose hope that anyone would. That those that now take the lead in this include one of the world's most respected, even beloved leaders in Brazil's Lula, and one of the US's own "NATO allies" in Turkey would seem to make possible a very healthy and broad-based counter-force coming together. Now the ball is in China, Russia and India's court, do they keep playing footsie with imperialist warmongering or do they shoulder world responsibilities appropriate to nations of their size and power?
Let's do something, lets all the World place nuke missile in Mexico, this probably will pressure the US to change their ARROGANT REGIME which obviously export terrorisms to others countries, always threating other with their weapons, push others to make wars (ex NK), etc)…. does anyone believe the Americans love democracy??
So, while the circus of "let's do something about Iran" is preoccupying the "international community", on Iran's bordes other theater opens its curtain. To quote from Washington Post: "The U.S. military is reviewing options for a unilateral strike in Pakistan in the event that a successful attack on American soil is traced to the country's tribal areas, according to senior military officials". The "successful attack is called the one on Times Square that NYPD declared not to be terrorist attack because they found a non-exposive type of fertilizer, bottles of gasoline, few firecrackers and few alarm clocks. None of that could have caused any damage other then to the car. This looks as real as a three dollar bill. .
Hegemony is evil, even when it is US. Brazil, Turkey and many other nations should threaten to leave the NPT if the Hegemon does not back off, let go of the reigns and start to share global governance. All the fallout (hopefully only literally) should be laid at the foot of the Hegemon and it;s aggressive little partner.
Humanity must do the whole world a favor and push the US off the planet!!!
Thanks Jason for wording the problem so clearly.
Reading between the lines of your post confirms the neocosn are the real problem.
I am losing my faint optimism after Turkey/Brazil/Iran deal, The neocons are so powerful they are going to prevail.
I see another heinous war on the horizons, I truly hope I am dead wrong
Hillary Clinton is Obama's (and America's) BIGGEST mistake.
This woman is mad and is dragging the USA and its people into an unjust and dispickable war with nations who do not have the weapons to defend themselves
What has happened with the Brazil/Turkey deal is that the FedGov and the Zionists have lost their excuse to go to war. That of course doesn't mean that they'll stand down, rather that they will have to resort to their infamous tactic of chutzpah. They will do as they will, throw out the most preposterous "reasons" imaginable and dare the world to stop them.
"The deal negotiated by Brazil and Turkey was materially identical to the one the Obama Administration had been demanding Iran sign since October. Now that Iran has signed it, the US has expressed vigorous opposition to the deal." This is what anybody who believes in America's word can expect.
