US secretary of state Hilary Clinton stated that Iran is in danger of turning into a military dictatorship, after delivering her latest assessment. The US and other believe that Iran is intending to become nuclear capable. She suggests that the road to stop Iran from developing nuclear warheads will be much tougher.

Too bright to be heard?

Wayne Madison has entirely missed the point. Secretary Clinton is not outraged that the Iranian government is becoming a military dictatorship. She is observing that power is shifting to the military (which is true), so pressure to get "Iran" to change its mind will need to be directed to the new centres of power. That's an intelligent observation: it went over the heads of Madison and the interviewer.
