Clinton warns of likely Iranian 'stunt' ahead of UN sanctions vote (right she is)
AFP ^ | June 7, 2010

WASHINGTON (AFP) - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday she expects Iran will "pull some stunt in the next couple of days" as a UN vote on tough sanctions against Tehran over its nuclear program looms.

Asked what she expects in the runup to a UN Security Council vote on sanctions on Tehran over its controversial nuclear program, Clinton said "I expect Iran to pull some stunt in the next couple of days."

Iran has in the past taken steps to "avoid being held accountable," Clinton told reporters as she waited to depart on a Latin American trip.

"I don't think anybody should be surprised if they (Iran) try to divert attention once again from the unity within the Security Council," the top US diplomat said.

"I think we'll see Iran say ...'wait a minute, wait a minute look at what we're going to do' in a bid to thwart sanctions," Clinton added. "They've consistently tried to avoid being held accountable."

Clinton added. "They've consistently tried to avoid being held accountable."

And no one should doubt Hillary's expertise in analyzing the subject.

A stunt? Like what? Is Ahmadinejad planning on sending the Queen a birthday card 7 days after her birthday?

Wonder if this stunt might involve the Israeli inspection of ships attempting to make port in Gaza?

My guess would be buzzards Bill and Hillary smell Obama's Political corpse starting to rot a little and are waiting for the feast.

I don’t see Hillary as being much if any better than Obama. She fits right in with bunch of amateurs.

Hitlery is likely helping to organize the 'stunt.'

The Dems badly need a distraction in the run up to the November election.

She is saying it because She and Bill are looking for a way to knock Obama's a@@ out of the saddle. Watch and see if this is not true. She hates the fact she isn't in The White and Obama is.

Amateur Hour-2008. Thought I heard Iran was sending a 'relief' ship in the next few days. This should be fun.

Me, I'd sink it and send out pontoon boats to pick up all the Teddy Bears.

Like peanut butter in my mouth
It is hard to say these words...

Hillary is one of the FEW competent
members in this administration

I can’t stand her,
And she has the moral compass of a sociopath
But she is competent

There, I said it
Must go wash out mouth with soap

And what, exactly, is Hillary the commie-in-hiding doing about it? Condemn Israel?

Brilliant.

She is as incompetent as colostomy bowel and is also an affirmative action hire.

Didn't Iran already announce that they would send ships to the Mediterranean to "protect" flotillas against Israeli attacks?

Hillary is great about predicting things we already know about.

She said this before the news of the ships from Iran. I say sink first, ask questions later.
