U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday the Obama administration believes Iran is becoming a military dictatorship.
In remarks to Arab students at Carnegie Mellon's campus in Qatar, Clinton said the Revolutionary Guard Corps in Iran appears to have gained so much power, saying "the Revolutionary Guard ... we believe is, in effect, supplanting the government of Iran."
"That is how we see it. We see that the government of Iran, the supreme leader, the president, the parliament, is being supplanted and that Iran is moving toward a military dictatorship. That is our view."
Clinton's comments came after it was announced earlier Monday that U.S. Vice President Joe Biden will be arriving in Israel within weeks on an official visit, amid growing regional tensions over Iran's controversial nuclear program.

Sorry, can you edit the headline to : Clinton: Iran is turning into military dictatorship
How about since Iran has been a military dictatorship and quasi-governmental movement since 1979, hiding behind a fake religion, the head line should read
Clinton has finally realized Iran is a Military Dictatorship!
Quote: “The admiral also noted that the U.S. has taken steps to protect several countries in the region from Iranian threats, and mentioned that Patriot air defense missiles had been deployed in the United Arab Emirates. Mullen added that all measures are defensive.”
The economy of Dubai might collapse so far before the Iranians ever strike it would be to the benefit of both the UAE and Iranian investors who own the deeds to the empty hulks of skyscrapers throughout the city. Western insurance companies would be the only losers.
Iran is already a military dictatorship. The mullahcracy was the larva.
And with her words, the O administration is paving the way to bomb Iran.
Nothing is more dangerous than a tyrant who is dropping in the polls.
You couldn't be more right. Because of his lack of experience, he is subject to all kinds of pressure from some ambitious political Wesley Clark type who longs for the cameras and the reflected glow.
I'm not saying we should preclude hitting Iran, but it has to be a sober decision based on the best possible data, rather than a wag the dog thing.
I think that is what’s called a “Hello, McFly!” moment or any other description proving a broken clock is on time twice a day. Sheesh!
Those ‘no pre-conditional talks’ have worked wonders, haven’t they, Clinton?
I agree. I think Obama is going to try to use this as a distraction. The only thing that might possibly keep him from doing so is that he is basically sympathetic to Ahmadinejad and his objectives.
All Hail the New Queen of the Obvious!
Talk about coming late to the party! Where has this ditz been for the past 31 years? Did she think the mullahs were keeping the people at bay all this time simply through sweetness and charm?
The Dragon Lady and her boss, Super Fly, have no inkling of what is really going on in the world. Guess Super Fly will have to flit back over to the Mid East again to give a speech on how evil America and Israel are and kowtow to the Islamic fruitcakes.
That's the upside to this "caliph mentality" the tyrants have over there (and here?)
They all fight amongst themselves, and still have time to hate the jews and attack the persians.
Obama is no different. Just because he hates America, it doesn't mean he's a pacifist.
What a putz.
But, but, I thought Obama could just talk to them and everything was going to be all right. That’s what he told us on the campaign trail. What happened??????
Clinton = MISTRESS OF THE OBVIOUS!!!!!!
Smartest SofS EVAH!!!!!!
It’s about freaking time you woke up Clinton!
They’ve been moving in this direction for the last five years!
Another epiphany brought to you by the folks from "Fatty Bottom".
A little slow on the uptake, Hillary?
WOW!! What took you so long Hildabeast??? Saddam #2. Wow!
Amamamanutjob has consistently proclaimed their newcler work was for peaceful power purposes.
This, IMO is grounds for demanding they shutdown their Newcler work immediately...otherwise, have it dismantled.
That's my strategery.
Get off her back — it wouldn’t do to call it an Islamofascist dicatorship!
THIS JUST IN:
Clinton says Iran is a military dictatorship..
new haedline...’smartest woman in the world gets a cartoon lightbulb overhead’...
muslime brotherhood & all...
Has anyone pointed out the paucity of qualification this woman had/has for the job of Secretary of State? I know she almost made President and Bambi is definitely a pure neophyte, and yes they trash the former Mayor and Governor Palin from dawn to dusk, but for crying out loud, we need some adults to handle some of these chores. Not the Chicago thugs!
this is simply a play for us to hit the protestors and make it look like bambam has military stones...to save some poll losses...nothing more...
** ... the Obama administration believes Iran is becoming a military dictatorship.**
And people scoffed at me when I called Stinky Imaneedastraitjacket “Little Hitler”
I welcome HER THIGHNESS to the party ... BOUT TIME, HIL!!!
And news to Her Thighness.. now that you’re in wake up mode.. your husbands a freekin rapist, your boss a radical marxist and his wife despises you. It must take the callousness of Soron to think you made the right choices.
Go over and fix it Billy boy.
Are you skeeered?
Bush dynasty/GOP: puppets for the OPEC, saudis, military industrial complex and industrial monopolies; their perspective is how to please these entities by doing stupid stuff like taking over Iraq for the saudis or dumping gazillions in Afghanistan and figuring out how to also suck up to the left at the same time
so this makes pefect sense coming from Clinton's lips.. [/sarcastic rant]
What is the US going to do about it? Not a dern thing; nothing!
Well pretend president Obama has mentioned that he wants a Civilian PAra military police force and has budgeted 9 billion dollars for ACORN "community workers."
Perhaps Clinton should consider announcing that the USA is becoming a military dictatorship under Obamas fascist hand. That would reveal the truth that Obama believes military dictatorship is an effective form of government. He already wants to abolish congress, and has called out SCOTUS on prime time TV.Obama wants to be a dictator.
So Clinton's anouncement about Iran is simply a prediction for what she and her master intend for America.
That boy’s about as sharp as a sack of wet mice, he is.
