The U.S. secretary of state had a rare chance to interact with Iran's foreign minister at a Bahrain security conference, which Clinton used to deliver a message to Tehran on the need to engage with the international community over its nuclear program at next week's talks in Geneva.

But while Clinton's keynote speech from the podium directly addressed the  Iranian team led by Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, her attempt at a more personal diplomacy with Mottaki fell distinctly flat.

"I got up to leave and he was sitting a couple of seats down from me and shaking people's hands and he saw me and he stopped and began to turn away," Clinton told reporters on her plane returning to Washington on Saturday.

"I said 'Hello, minister.' He just turned away."

negotiating with these murderors is just an utter waste of time.  The world has given the Islamic Rapist Cultists ample time to rehabilitate their ways.  It has failed for the past 31 years, as we Iranians know it also has failed for the past 1400.  So time for diplomacy and sweet talk with this uncivilized bunch is over.  Get the Armada ready and lets finish them off in under a week.

If true--and that's a big if--what did she expect after the recent Wilileaks disclosures prove that Obama was lying about his sincerity of engaging Iran?

And what does she expect after Iran's scientists were attacked and murdered on the streets of Tehran? A little role reversal- what reaction from the US would there be if American scientists were murdered here in the States?

I mean, let's get real.

Not everyone does have open arms like Maryam.

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.
