Iranian election, will of the people, & Hillary

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won another rigged Presidential election in Iran. The Ayatollah has so decreed.

And here is what Secretary of State Hillary had to say about it:

"The United States has refrained from commenting on the election in Iran. We obviously hope that the outcome reflects the genuine will and desire of the Iranian people..."

Isn't that like saying "I hope the people of Iran want to obliterate Israel" because that is the outcome of this election. The outcome, rigged or not, is that the proponent of obliterating Israel and developing nuclear weapons to carry out that intent won the election. And Hillary hopes this outcome reflects the genuine will and desire of the Iranian people. We know for certain the outcome represents the genuine will and desire of many Iranians. How many we may never know.

Yes, she could have intended the meaning differently, as in hoping a different outcome had occurred to reflect the true will of the people. But this is not the way the words came out. What a mealy mouthed, wishy washy, pandering thing she said.

And why "refrain...from commenting on the election?" How laid back should we be in this matter? What's the matter Hillary and Barack, cats' got your tongue?

How about calling a spade a spade and proclaim a rigged election against the will of the people and against the best interests of the entire middle east region?

Would that be too much to ask?
