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."

And no one should doubt Hillary's expertise in analyzing the subject.
How right that is.
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?
For heaven’s sake, Hitlery, it has been a non-stop stunt from Iran since 1978. Are you just now catching on?????
“For heavens sake, Hitlery, it has been a non-stop stunt from Iran since 1978. “
Yes, but she gets points for coming out & saying it.
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.
Iran is blaming Bush too?
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?
Samson’s name will rise to the tongue of every man.
