The World's Most Powerful Woman?
I doubt it. But, she is no doubt the world's coldest and most calculating bitch. How does she do it? She's not married; no kids. How does she manage to find the immoral fortitude to lie so often and with such gall?
On her visit to Blackburn and Liverpool, Condoleezza Rice, US secretary of state, told her audience that the citizens of “Baghdad and Beirut and Cairo and yes, Tehran” would realise their “impossible dreams” for democracy . . .She failed to mention that the aid would likely be delivered on the back of a nuclear missile.
“They will remember fondly those other great democracies… who stood with them in their time of need,” she said, in a reference to the war in Iraq.

About 200 protesters at a Blackburn voiced their opposition to Rice's visit, some carrying signs that read: How many lives per gallon? Blood, Lies, Oil, War.
Rice said she wasn't surprised by the protests, calling it an essential element of a healthy democracy.
"People have the right to protest. That's what democracy is all about."

She also said the US was ready to help Iran with humanitarian aid after the country’s earthquake the previous night.
