Maxed Out

When I read this stuff, I think that the day when our maxed-out imperial credit card starts being rejected can't come soon enough:
Asked if Washington planned to attack Iran, she replied: "No, we are planning to try to bring the world community together in applying pressure to Iran through sanctions adopted by the United Nations that will be particularly aimed at those enterprises controlled by the Revolutionary Guard, which we believe is, in effect, supplanting the government of Iran."

"That is how we see it. We see that the government of Iran, the supreme leader, the president, the parliament, is being supplanted and that Iran is moving toward a military dictatorship. That is our view," she said, speaking to students in a televised session.
Let us suppose, against all experience, that La Hillary's words are true. If Iran's a military dictatorship, how would that distinguish it from places like Egypt and Saudi Arabia and Yemen, whose wildly undemocratic "governments" are compliant with the empire's wishes, and are therefore cuddly? How would that distinguish Iran from the budding surveillance state we have going right here?

Shut up with those unpatriotic questions, Jim, and let our leaders lead. Hillary nust know better, otherwise she wouldn't have been elected.
What, she wasn't elected?
Oh.

Sorry. There are some things that are just beyond my imagination.
