Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice

The headline reads

Rice, Lavrov quarrel on Iraq

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, speaking unknowingly into an open microphone, chastised her Russian counterpart yesterday for bemoaning the killing of five Russian diplomats in Iraq

Seems to me that Rice has been quarrelling more and more with Russian officials. I’m thinking there’s growing conflict with Russia over how we deal with Iraq and Iran, the USD and the Rubel, Gold (via deliberate higher weighting of Gold in Russia’s forex reserves). This is the second time that Condoleezza has had harsh words with Russian officials in a short time. Could be politics, showing how tough she is, but I sense something more.
