Rice: Military power is ‘not the way to deal in the 21st century.’

Yesterday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice sharply criticized Russia for relying on its “military power” to accomplish its goals. Ironically, she said that it “is not the way to deal in the 21st century.” From her remarks yesterday en route to Belgium:

Salon’s Glenn Greenwald responds to Rice’s remarks: “Just during the time Rice has served in the Bush administration, we bombed, invaded and occupied Afghanistan; did the same to Iraq; repeatedly bombed Somalia, killing all sorts of civilians; fed bombs to Israel as they invaded and bombed Lebanon; top political officials (led by John McCain and Joe Lieberman) have repeatedly threatened, and advocated, that the same be done to a whole host of other countries, including Iran and Syria.”
