The Times of Israel ^ | September 4, 2012 2:18 am | Sam Ser

Posted on 09/03/2012 4:54:04 PM PDT by xzins

US Secretary of State’s comments come after meeting with Indonesian foreign minister

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton speaking in Benin.

“Iran has a right to the use of peaceful nuclear energy,” US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday, “but Iran must abide by its international obligations and cannot be permitted to get a nuclear weapons.”

Clinton made the remarks in a press conference in Jakarta following meetings with Indonesia’s foreign minister.

She also commented on the fighting in Syria, saying that the United States was committed to “putting an end to the violence, responding to humanitarian need, and helping to facilitate a political, democratic transition that will benefit the Syrian people.”

Who cares that the subterfuge of "nuclear power" has been the means for the spread of nuclear weaponry.

This is exactly the same game the Clintons played with North Korea.

China smiles on North Korea. North Korea helps Iran. Iran helps Hezbollah. Hezbollah helps almost everyone else...

Meanwhile, back at the hood in D. C., our illustrious fearless leader makes plans to destroy the rest of our nuclear arsenal.

Eh, no problem... /s

So much for Hillary being brilliant. Most of us already knew she was stupid but the rest of the country gets to see for themselves except of course the Stepford wives & their Lilly livers husbands.

And WHERE are the radical environmentalists screaming about Iran using nuclear plants for energy????? Hmmmmmm? Yeah. Thought so.

THEY can have it......Westernized countries can’t.

Kinda put the whole thing into perspective, doesn’t it? It’s NOT about the ‘environment’ at all.

Dear Hillary:

When my child was small he had a right to a warm home, but he wasn’t allowed to light the furnace or play with matches.

When Iran can show the world that it’s grown up and has learned to respect the rights of others, it should expect to be welcomed into the adult world of “rights” along with it’s attendant responsibilities. Until then, “No!”

See? That wasn’t so hard.

Hillery and Bill Clintons... traitors aiding and abbetting the enemies of the Jews, Israel and America all for political power.

Hillery and the Democrats HATE Israel and the Jews and they LOVE Islam and Muslims. God keeps His Word and He says they are under His Almighty curse: Genesis 12:3

I saw Bill in an interview a couple of years ago.

He explained in detail why it was necessary for North Korea to have nukes.

It is the only thing they have to stimulate their economy.

That’s what he said.

She certainly appears to be using the same strategy that gave the Norks nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

So some scrambling is occurring in response to Netanyahu's forceful comment to US Amb. Shapiro.

Netanyahu flatly told Shapiro a couple of days ago, "We have run out of time!"

The WH and Hitlery are scared of what Israel is going to do in the next few days IMO. Israel's actions could blast the Dems into real schism.

He's right. Without nuclear weapons, how else can North Korea blackmail the entire world, rather than just South Korea, to fund their military while the civilian population starves?

During the 1930s, a British prime minister thought the Germans had the right to take over Austria and Czechoslovakia. The Austrians and Czechoslovakians didn’t agree and tried to fight back, but they were too weak to defend themselves.

Now an American Secretary of State thinks the Iranians, who have stated that Israel should be destroyed, have the right to develop nuclear weapons. Israel doesn’t agree and wants to fight back by dismantling Iran’s nuclear sites. Let’s hope they succeed.

Surely if the Austrians and Czecks had been strong enough to defeat Hitler, Britain would have cheered them on since Hitler was also a threat to the British. Yet the Obama administration is so anti-Israel that if Israel should succeed in knocking out Iran’s nuclear capability, which is also a threat to America, no one expects Obama to cheer them on but in fact to do just the opposite.

I was going to use sarcastic made up quotations to illustrate how the allies of Piaps are praying 5x/day for Achimamurdererjiad to pull the trigger, and cause World War III...
we are at a point where Hank Kissinger’s grand theory of mutually assured destruction is meaningless. With the forces of Jihad at stake, nothing is out of bounds and all is fair...albeit not according to Almighty God.

If they attack the kooks in Iran owebama will probably order an attack on Israel. I’m not kidding.

Right. A terrorist nation with a history of violence against America run by a raving lunatic who has called for Israel to be wiped off the map deserves “nuclear power”, but an American citizen who has done nothing is a potential criminal if he owns a gun.

Gotta love political logic.

There is one thing we must never let the world forget.

If Israel gets destroyed it is because liberal Democrats refused to help knowing the potential outcome.

And if a Nuclear war erupts/nuke terror occurs, see above.

There is ZERO way around those simple truths.

If it was for self-defense ok, but they will use it on Israel which is why everyone is against this.

I think all signatories to the non-proliferation treaty have the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. It’s the enrichment of uranium beyond that necessary for peaceful purposes that is forbidden.
I think that’s what Secretary Clinton was saying.
I may be mistaken about this
However, this is the first and likely last time I will ever say anything remotely supporting Sec. Edmund Hillary. It certainly isn’t the first and won’t be the last time I may make a mistake.

She means “to become a nuclear power” just as the Clintons were okay with Pakistani and North Korean nukes.

All the while Obama’s policy is to reduce the US nuclear arsenal to ZERO (he’s pushing for 300 for now and has all but removed their actual USE off the table under his administration).

Israel will never be destroyed. We have become a nation so illiterate of what G-d has spoken. It just won’t happen. Barack Obama will bring a judgment of biblical proportions (say HA Ha now,please unbelievers). Obama has not lowered any sea levels. He is a man , not even the anti Christ he wishes to be. But he leads a nation to turn it’s back on Israel and G-d will bless those nations who stand by Israel and curse those who curse it. History records one shepherd boy who came against an army led by Goliath. Enough said.

I tried looking it up on Google and failed. Can you provide some backup in the form of a link. That's good stuff if he said it.... especially considering that the only way it helps the economy is if they are selling something.
