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:

But I just want to emphasize again, Russia is a state that is unfortunately using the one tool that it has always used, that will make it – that – when it wishes to deliver a message, and that’s its military power. That’s not the way to deal in the 21st century. And if Russia wishes to make a different strategic choice, as President Medvedev said, this is a bad way to start.

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.”
