LAHORE: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Pakistan on Thursday that it would face serious consequences if it continues to deal with Iran.

A private TV channel quoted Clinton as telling the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the Obama administration is moving swiftly to impose new sanctions on Iran amid concerns in Congress that the White House will not be aggressive enough in cracking down on financial institutions that do business with Tehran's Central Bank.

"What we are intending to do is to ratchet up these sanctions as hard and fast as we can," Clinton said.

She said Pakistan was going to reach an agreement with Iran while the US has planned to impose sanction on Tehran. She added that if Pakistan deals with Iran "it would be very destructive for Pakistan".

Clinton said the US administration and Congress were on the same page regarding Iran and sanctions against it.

The inventors of Iraq's WMDs are now inventing WMD s in Iran. Whether or not Iran is going nuclear, the US showed their hunger and greed for OIL when they overthrew and later murdered the democratically elected Dr Mosaddeq and replced him with the puppet Shah. Also their divine claims of Iraq's WMDs and and its ability to successfully attack and destroy the blessed 'WEST' in minutes proved to the whole world that the cowboy is still a cowboy. He has not grown up! Nay, growing up into a civilised human being is NOT in his DNA.!

Besides, the sudden stiffness in the attitude of the puppets in Islamabad means they have stumbled upon plans of Hillary's MUSLIM president which are totally inimical, and any further subservience to Washington is going to bring untold destruction to the whole MUSLIM WORLD! So BYE BYE, COWBOY!
