McCain said “these winds of change” also carry warnings for the leaders of Russia and China.
“I would be a little less secure if I was President Hu [Jintao] deciding the fate of 1.3 billion people,” he said of China’s leader. “I don’t think this is confined to the Middle East, just as we believe human rights are universal.”
As for America’s role, McCain said Egyptians “want us to assist, they don’t want us to dictate.”
