Last quote by Madeleine Albright

It had not occurred to me, frankly, that I would ever be in a position to break a glass ceiling. Particularly as a woman who is married and the mother of twins. But the turning point did come.feedback

Madeleine Albright quotes

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

They may not be fit for purpose and I do think that some of the way that the different layers of government in Bosnia Herzegovina – the complications of that – then the way that some of the powers for Republika Srpska were interpreted have undermined the problem.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

I wish it had worked faster. I prefer to be positive, and try to figure out where the steps have gone forward. With the War Crimes Tribunal and the International Criminal Court, there is an attempt for there to be a responsible, international approach to genocide and crimes against humanity.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

Well I think, first of all, I think the courts have operated pretty well. The fact that (Radovan) Karadzic, who was one of the major contributors to this, was in fact sentenced, I think is a very big deal because the purpose of the court was to assign individual guilt and erase collective guilt, so in fact there could be reconciliation.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Populism

Well, I think it is different, but I do think that populism / nationalism are very dangerous forces, because they seem to be filled with not just extremism, but based on the fact that you hate somebody else. It's one thing to be proud of who you are, your identity. It's another to decide that the people who live next door to you are unacceptable.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - United Nations

Well, I think 40 years is a long time, especially given his age. I have to say that the War Crimes Tribunal actually worked better than most people thought at the time. It was one of my first votes when I was at the United Nations. People thought nobody would ever be indicted or brought to justice – they were.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

I think what is interesting is that some of the Serbs in Belgrade have been trying, mainly because of the inducement of EU membership, to kind of look at things differently. But I am not going to defend some of things that are happening. In Kosovo for instance, there continue to be issues between the Serbs and the Kosovars.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

Well I think they're wrong. I think that she is a remarkable woman who has been a very good and dedicated public servant. I've known her for a very long time, she's very smart, she works very very hard and she is better, she has more experience than anybody that's ever run for president of the United States. She listens to people, both at home and abroad. She as senator was on the armed services committee, knows how that works, and as secretary of state she restored America's reputation. So I think there's nobody better prepared.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - NATO

I think we actually are in a worse situation than when we were in office, which was during the 1990's when there was a great deal of hope and excitement about the end of the Cold War – looking at how Europe could in fact be a part of NATO and the European Union, and a sense that the United Nations could operate. I think it was really a time of a lot of hope and excitement.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

I do, definitely and I know there are a lot of people critical of it. I actually spent time as a child in Belgrade, my father was the Czechoslovak ambassador to Yugoslavia. I am not welcome in Belgrade these days but I really do think that what we did, because of the kinds of things that Milosevic and Karadzic were doing, that they were justified. And to give the opportunity to the Bosnians and the Kosovars to be able to make decisions about how their country should be run.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

Well I think this is the hardest question at the moment. America is a very unusual country. We are not a colonial power, we don't want to be the policemen of the world. And in many ways it's kind of hard to figure out when we should be involved and when we shouldn't. And we are criticised for both.feedback

Apr 28 2016 - Trump-Putin

In Syria. Well generally. But Secretary Clinton was saying, and she is for a no-fly zone, a safe area, in Syria. I happen to think it would have been easier to do earlier. I do wish that we had sorted out better who some of the rebel groups were earlier. But the hardest part, and I am very careful about this, is that judgments were made about decisions that were made during the Clinton administration, that it's easy to be on the outside and say 'X should have happened.' The people that are in office make decisions based on the information that they have at the time. And I think that… I personally wish that we had done something earlier in Syria.feedback

Apr 28 2016

I've never seen such a combo of simplistic slogans and contradictions and misstatements in one speech.feedback

Sep 21 2012

I think there is basic ignorance about how the people that live in these countries have not been able to have jobs, have been in some ways kind of propagandised to hate somebody.feedback
