Back In The USSR

Discussing Iran, the Secretary of State makes the U.S.-Soviet, Cold War analogy:
Citing the U.S. experience throughout the Cold War of “always press[ing]” the Soviet Union on human rights while talking “with them about reducing their nuclear arsenal,” Clinton said that “we’ve been very clear in supporting the legitimate aspirations of Iranian people and speaking out forcefully against irregularities of their electoral process.” The responsibility of statecraft is to support both U.S. interests and human rights, she said.
