Secretary of State Clinton on the Iranian election (video)

Here's US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton talking about the Iranian election. Spineless.

Let's go to the videotape.

Allah P. reports that while the United States knows that the fix is in, the Obumbler has decided to move ahead with 'dialogue' with Iran anyway.
The White House says it’s full speed ahead on “dialogue.”
The Obama administration is determined to press on with efforts to engage the Iranian government, senior officials said Saturday, despite misgivings about irregularities in the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad…

“This is the worst result,” said Thomas R. Pickering, a former under secretary of state. “The U.S. will have to worry about being perceived as pandering to a president whose legitimacy is in question. It clearly makes the notion of providing incentives quite unappetizing.”
Presumably the thinking here is that public outrage in Iran will weaken the mullahs’ hand against the U.S. and force them to accept some grand bargain, in which case Obama’s basically offering them legitimacy in exchange for denuclearization. The more likely outcome, though, is that the regime will continue to jerk him around while it builds a bomb and then count on its announcement that Iran has become a nuclear state to stoke national pride and win over its disaffected public. In which case Obama will have given them legitimacy in exchange for nothing. Terrific.
Read the whole thing.

The United States used to be a superpower. It's not one anymore.

Why Israel should put its fate in the hands of the US is the $64,000 question of the century. Obumbler's America is pressing full speed ahead with appeasement of Iran. In view of this, Israel would be foolish to trust America to do anything about Iran's nuclear drive. The writing is on the wall.
