    Yes, this is the correct approach to get steam out the boiling kettle. It is better to talk for a whole year than to fight a single day.

    I am sure in Israel and also in the zionist circles in the USA this video will raise bad vibrations. They just cannot understand why we refuse to wipe out Iran to make way to an Israeli hegemony in the ME.
    In my opinion we should not worry about those who may have A-bombs in a few years, we should watch those who have it right now.

      can someone explain what Obama’s iMunich? means.

      Chamerlain’s Munich Pact was an act of appeasement to Hitler’s territorial demands. So, internet + Obama/Ahmadinejad = iMunich (to the Zionists).

      The US has utilized a Virtual or E-Consulate in Gaza for years without imperiling the existence of the Jewish masses.

    Annie, it’s a reference to Neville Chamberlain visiting Munich in 1938 and coming back with his infamous piece of paper.

    How much of this is motivated by a desire to use this virtual embassy for anti-Iranian propaganda? We’ll see.

    Comment from another site:

    I feel ill just watching this insincere bullshit from Secretary Clinton as we clamp down on Iran instead of engaging in diplomacy with it.

    I’m pretty sure that this will be a great place for the Iranian people to virtually “spit” at us for the kind of imperial sanctions which we are about to lay down, sanctions that cripple the most basic rudiments of life for a civilian population already struggling.
