As if we needed any more evidence that Medvedev was speaking way off script at the UN when he hinted that “sanctions are inevitable” against Iran, Foreign Minister Lavrov took a buzz saw to the whole idea.
“Threats, sanctions, and threats of pressure in the current situation, we are convinced, would be counterproductive,” said Lavrov.
Always a bridesmaid, Hillary! left her meeting in Moscow empty-handed. In fact, Lavrov wasn’t even nice enough to offer the Secretary of State anything resembling a fake plastic prop to symbolize their relationship.
May we remind you, sir, that Hillary’s boss just won the Nobel Prize. Next time, you’d better show some respect, because he’s um, really important and stuff.
(To be fair, however, we do have it on good authority that Lavrov didn't ask the Secretary of State what her husband thought about Iran sanctions.)
