Video: Hillary Clinton threatens 'stricter sanctions'

In the last two minutes of Part 1 of an interview with Venezuela's Globovision at the State Department on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the the United States would never tell another country not to do business with Iran. Then she says that if 'engagement' with Iran is not successful, the West would adopt 'stricter sanctions' against Iran. Good luck with that. If they won't tell another country not to do business with Iran, how will any sanctions ever work?

Earlier in Part 1, Clinton also espouses support for Honduran President Zelaya and says that she's trying to put together a 'mediation process.' Good luck with that too. Honduran democracy seems to have worked just fine from where I'm sitting. What is there to mediate?

By the way, I had some problems playing Part 1. If you have problems too, just hit "play" again.

In Part 2, Clinton gives some implied criticism of Obama's friend Hugo Chavez. Venezuelan blogger Daniel reports that Globovision is an anti-Chavez network. I wonder how Clinton ended up having an interview there. Daniel reports that the Chavismos were livid about the interview.

Let's go to the videotape.

Here's Part 2. Let's go to the videotape.

You'll see at the end of the second tape that her arm is still in a cast. Heh.

US foreign policy is all bark, no bite.

What could go wrong indeed
