Hillary Clinton Warns: ‘Iran is Moving Toward a Military Dictatorship’
February 15, 2010
(ChattahBox)–Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during her trip to the Middle East, warned that the Islamic regime of Iran was quickly developing into a military dictatorship. The Revolutionary Guard Corps now controls both the military and domestic programs in the country, including the development weapons-grade nuclear technology.
Clinton was on a tour of the Middle East to ensure that China would not see its oil supply reduced, as a result of UN sanctions imposed on Iran. The U.S. and other Western powers are working with the UN to impose a fresh new set of sanctions against Iran, in the wake of its refusal to halt its program to enrich uranium.
China is the only country that intends to veto the UN resolution imposing strict sanctions targeting the financial holdings of the Revolutionary Guard.
During a speech before university students in Qatar, Clinton called on Iran to reconsider its “dangerous” nuclear policy. “Iran is moving toward a military dictatorship,” she said. “That is our view,” said Clinton.
