Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared on PBS Newshour this evening. The video and transcript are available online: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/world/july-dec11/clinton_12-14.html. I read through the transcript and she touches on a lot of interesting topics -- several issues with China, that the US does not fear a peaceful rise from China, but does want to them follow intellectual copyright, and some issues China may face in the near future, such as rising unemployment as companies look for cheaper labor elsewhere, and the necessity for China to be thoughtful in their industrial development in Africa. She also talks about Iraq. It is interesting to know that Turkey has invested more in Iraq than Iran has. It's well worth a glance.
