U.S. demands Iran respond in days to nuclear report
http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/11/12/us-iran-usa-clinton-idUKTRE7AB03220111112

(Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton demanded on Friday that Iran respond within days to a U.N. nuclear watchdog's accusations of atomic weapons work, and said Washington was consulting allies on further steps to pressure Tehran.

Clinton, speaking at an Asia-Pacific summit in Honolulu, made clear that the United States was seeking to marshal international support for additional sanctions against Iran, but stopped short of specifying actions under consideration.

Her comments followed a report from the International Atomic Energy Agency earlier this week that concluded that Iran had worked on developing an atomic bomb design and may still be conducting such research.

U.S. President Barack Obama was expected to seek a united front against Iran when he meets world leaders, including Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Chinese President Hu Jintao, on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit this weekend.

5. Starting the drumbeat of war,
My guess, Israel starts this off with a bang, a strike on Iran. Iran responds and then we get dragged into the mess.

6. She's become very harsh and dictatorial.
I think AIPAC has taken her over. It's worrysome.
