The China Factor in Latin America
"Hats hit the daily signal. This is something that you should be worried about. This is something that you should be talking about or we should be talking about from our biggest adversaries. Why this guy plays for photo ops, China is playing for keeps. Again, had to daily signal. Taiwan relationship matters to America and holding back China. Nowadays our countries are much more than Friends. They are partners in strategic allies at your values and the same vision to create a peaceful democratic and sustainable world. These are the succinct words of president Mario Abdul Benitez of the republic of Paraguay, who is currently leading a delegation to Taiwan on a 5 day state visit. Washington should welcome the constructive and forward looking interaction between America's two critical partners, one in the indo Pacific, a Pacific, and the other in South America. That's because our Latin American neighbors have been a major diplomatic battleground for China and Taiwan, huh? Excuse me? Say what? China has chased after Taiwan's diplomatic allies to switch their recognition of Taiwan as a separate nation independent of China, Beijing has gained 8 conversions in recent years, including Nicaragua, which cut its ties with Taiwan in December 2021.

"Call now 8 three three four Valdez. That's 8 three three four 8 two 5 three three 7 8 three three four Valdez. That's valdes with an S Kim China threatens our sovereignty. We will act to protect our country and we did. Is Biden's Pentagon a war fighting organization amidst the Chinese threat and that's what folks at the heritage foundation are wondering, welcome back, I am rich valdes valdes with an SR telephone numbers 8 three three four Valdez if you want to join the conversation with our guest lieutenant colonel Dakota wood retired, he is a senior research fellow at the heritage foundation. Colonel welcomes her. What a pleasure to be with you. Thanks for having me. Yes, sir. So I'm looking at this piece here. And I want to read this to you. Which I'm sure you're familiar with. It says in a recent memo, general Michael a minahan commander of the U.S. Air Force air mobility command says he has a gut feeling. That the U.S. will be at war with China in 2025. And again, back to that question, is our military ready to take on China when balloons are getting in and they're hanging out for more than a week. Yeah, well, yes and no. It's at the senior levels of The Pentagon. That's where we really have some concerns. About this quite a bit. And then there's the material readiness of the force. So what which is highly questionable. Matter of fact, we do an annual report card on American military power. We just released our 9 tradition this past October and for the first time quarter military is weak. This is an indictment on the men and women. You got old equipment, the military is too small for global responsibilities that we call on it for and it's not able to fire or shoot or drive sufficient to be combat ready. So what general minahan is getting at is trying to motivate his force. His previous billet was as the deputy commander of indo Pacific command. So very, very familiar with everything going on relative to China and North Korea and all of our allies over there, Japan and South Korea, et cetera. Very familiar with that. Now he's in charge of the air mobility command. The air force command that has all the refuelers, the tankers, the cargo aircraft, that sort of thing. And he's looking across the ocean where he just came from, looks at the state of our military, looks at consolidation of power by Xi Jinping and what their objectives are with respect to Taiwan and other places. And he says, well guys, we've got to be ready for war. I mean, this is our job. And so he motivates his people, Napoleon had this great maxim of the moral as the physical is three to one. And you can have a small, fairly ill equipped force, but if it's motivated to fight, look what's going on with the Ukrainians, they can do great things. And so this memo was to focus his people, get them ready for war, which has a deterrent value and the focus of this opinion piece that I wrote was he got all this pushback from The Pentagon. You know that we're not associating ourselves with this comments. That's not how we view China. And so when you look at the senior levels of The Pentagon and the current White House, they try to minimize anything that might possibly seem as provocative. And so what do we get from China? We get surveillance balloons. Buying over the United States for a week. So it just seems that in the capitals of North Korea and Russia and China and Iran. Any sense of weakness on the part of the United States or others is exploited. They're going to take advantage of that. And they don't necessarily want to resolve things diplomatically or with trade relations because they have other objectives. Now, colonel, it seems to me that it's a good idea for the news that we've heard in the last week or so that the United States is acquiring or collaborating with the Philippines and four new bases. We're just say this is enough or not enough in terms of trying to counter what may become a Chinese offensive. Not nearly enough. We used to be in the Philippines in a very big way. We had a massive air base area. We had access to subic bay naval station, the massive deepwater port mount pinatubo erupted, if you recall, some decades ago, it destroyed a lot of things. And the nature of relations between the United States and the Philippines back then, China was nowhere near as capable as this today. It just was felt that there wasn't worth putting the money into kind of rebuilding those bases and maintaining that presence. And so we withdrew these new facilities are being provided by the Philippines are fairly small. They provide kind of operational footprints, but a lot of this has to do with counter terrorism. They're in the Philippines itself. They've been dealing with a lot of insurgent groups and terrorist groups for many decades. And so us working with the Philippines is kind of a good thing for all. But these are not substitutes for actual hard military power in the indo Pacific region. Japan has had a pacifist constitution for many good reasons since the end of World War II, they are waking up to the threat posed by China and have doubled their defense spending in this past year. For the first time they're looking at what they call out of area operations. You know, more deployable, things away from just defending the main islands of Japan itself. Vietnam is waking up to this. Korea would do more, but they are fully focused on the threat posed by North Korea. So the difference between what's going on in Europe with Russia's invasion of Ukraine and what goes on in the western Pacific and the indo Pacific region is that on European continent all the distances are fairly short. We've got a lot of NATO allies over there to get things across the Atlantic takes about ten days and massive rail networks and airfields and all this other sorts of things. When you look on the other side of the planet, distances are measured in thousands of miles in our facilities are a long, long way from defending helping to fit

"It's I mean, it's not been really fun page news in that Korean. The public discussion here tends to be much more focused on matters that are closer to home this year than the past year or so has been a time of quite a lot of military activity by North Korea and the domestic conversation has also noticed some recent movies by Japan to increase its own military capabilities. Here, I think the government is dealing with a kind of dual priority where the unit administration wants to bolster an image of itself is very committed to these what they call universal values of freedom and democracy in a market economy and as we all know the war in Ukraine is a really kind of a crystallization of the free world versus an aggressive and autocratic country in Russia. And I think South Korea wants to be a vocal proponent of the NATO led efforts and be on the side of the U.S. and on the side of other three democracies. But at the same time, Russia is something of a partner for Korea and there's a number of South Korean companies that have important interests in Russia and so I think the government does want to be supportive, but they are dealing with a kind of slate, a myriad of priority. Tomako lips come to you now. Stoltenberg is in Japan. Do we know yet what's come out of talks there? Well, it's too early to say anything substantial at the moment. I'm afraid you're Gina. But I think the talk between the secretary of general Japanese prime minister kishida will focus slightly more on the indo Pacific aspect, given the fact that NATO has issued its own strategic concept. Focusing on the indo Pacific and Japan has just issued three actually important defense related documents, again focusing on the indo Pacific. So it's going to be as if European land based major authoritarian regimes must be sandwiched if you like between NATO and the indo Pacific based alliance network. Like ROK, Japan or Australia, certainly with the United States. And I think that's the sort of political signal that the secretary general and the Japanese prime minister will both willing to be willing to present to the rest of the world. So we know that Japan's presently constrained by self imposed rules that means it can't send offensive weapons to any country involved in a conflict. Do you think that this rule could be lifted in the future and is that perhaps what Stoltenberg is after? I think the secretary general should voice his interest in that direction because Japan has done nothing of that sort. And the opposition within the Japanese people for against that is still substantial. But I think as a major nation, Japan is responsible of doing its own fair share in times of crisis like this. And I think secretary general should push the Japanese government do do more. Steve, Yun and kushida became the first leaders from their countries to attend a NATO summit. They joined alliance leaders as observers last year, and following that South Korea opened its first diplomatic mission to NATO. Do you think this is laying the path for the North Atlantic treaty to expand to the indo Pacific? Is membership on the agenda? As far as I know, we might be going a little bit too far down the road to speculate about that. I think in a more short term, this union's appearance on this stage, I think, is this in line with and the government overall efforts to carve out a larger and more influential security posture for South Korea

The house is stuck in an endless Groundhog Day like loop of repeatedly voting on the speaker and repeatedly failing to come up with a majority choice for the speaker. They can't do anything as a result of it. They can't set up their committees. They can't move ahead with legislation. They can't do much to help out their constituents.

Why do they keep voting if Kevin McCarthy doesn't have the votes? And no one else seems to either. So because of House rules, they are kind of by default tasked with voting on a speaker until they come up with a speaker. Because there is no speaker to tell them not to do that. So the only thing they can do if they come up with a majority to vote to do something else, like change the rules of the speaker election or briefly adjourn until tomorrow, which they've done a couple of times. They can do that if a majority of the House votes to do that. But even that has proved difficult, it's been hard for Kevin McCarthy to line up a majority of votes to even get them to take a break from voting.

Air Force grounds entire B-2 fleet after emergency landing
"The air force is grounding its entire fleet of B two stealth bombers. It follows an in flight malfunction on a B two earlier this month. It had to make an emergency landing at whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri and caught fire. The fire was put out, there were no injuries. There are fewer than 20 stealth bombers in the entire fleet, an air force spokeswoman says they will all be inspected. In September of last year, another B two at whiteman had to make an emergency landing after the hydraulic system failed, resulting in the bomber's landing gear collapsing. The B two has been regularly deployed to the indo Pacific and more recently to Europe as a show of force. The B two was scheduled to fly over the 2023 rose parade and rose bowl game, but it will be replaced by the B one lancer. Ed Donahue, Washington.

"On Bloomberg television radio I'm David Westin President Biden of course has just returned from his trip over to Asia where he tried to really forge some new alliances over there At the same time we have the ongoing war with Ukraine and all of our efforts to try to dissuade Russia from continuing to prosecute that war So it raises questions for many presidents who come to office hoping it's going to be about domestic politics and they get dragged into foreign affairs We have somebody now who really knows about this area He's bob Zelle Principal in the Brunswick group He served as ambassador he was World Bank president and then U.S. trade representative the deputy trade Secretary of State and he's author of America in the world Bob thanks so much for being with us So we are focused on foreign affairs right now with Asia and with Ukraine Give us your sense You wrote a piece in The Wall Street Journal saying to some extent President Biden has almost a fork in the road between becoming either Harry Truman on the one hand which would be the good alternative or Jimmy Carter the bad What's the difference between those two alternatives Well you know the interesting part is Truman Carter and President Biden all came to office after traumatic presidencies You know the death of FDR Nixon's impeachment and the Trump years And so I think all three wanted to try to stabilize the country but all three faced what are going to turn out to be an interesting set of challenges that all three had some very big inflation which created some trouble on the economic side They struggled with the left wing of their party that's wanted to pull them further to the Flank But then all three had very big national events that they wouldn't have expected when they took office And so Truman decided after losing the Congress in 1946 to really focus on being foreign policy president made some courageous decisions to really sort of set up what became American international foreign policy for the next 40 years Carter tried struggled and failed And so I think if we look at President Biden today you know it's natural when you're in The White House I've been there I was a deputy chief of staff under the first president Bush is that you know you're kind of you're inundated with things going on You're dealing with the tactical questions But the reason I wrote the piece is I think he's going to have to make a switch on this to try to sort of reset his policy for the future So let's talk about the two big issues that we always talk about when it comes to foreign policy China on one hand and Ukraine Russia on the other And specifically in Ukraine Russia we had George Soros over Davos Really saying that the Russia Ukraine thing could be cataclysmic for civilization This is part of what he had to say The invasion may have been the beginning of the third World War And our civilization may not survive it Bob that's pretty dramatic talk You have a lot of experience State Department As you say at The White House otherwise at the World Bank do you think that that's right this could be the start of World War three It's a very serious question issue and obviously I believe I hope we certainly avoid that course But I guess what I would highlight is that all during the Cold War we were always a very sensitive when it came time to a potential conflict with another nuclear power Now right now President Biden has avoided U.S. forces in Ukraine I think that's the proper decision We're trying to support the Ukrainians and their ability to defend themselves But depending on the course of the conflict I think what George Soros and some others would probably at least urge people to be attentive to her What are the risks of escalation What different events could have start to lead this whether chemical weapons nuclear weapons other aspects If you look at president Putin this goes to the core of his view of Russia's place in the world he believes Ukraine really isn't an independent state He's 69 years old This is his place in Russian history This is a man who's not going to back down Now the Ukrainians I think to the surprise of many people and wonderfully have shown great fortitude They'd been supplied They're fighting back But I think it's going to be a bloody battleground for a time to come And so in a sense it's going to be important for the U.S. and allies and others to work with Ukraine but also think about kind of what our real strategic objectives here As the Ukrainians have success or at least they keep the Russians running success does the risk of isolation go up the better the Ukrainians do Well one of the issues I think that the world hasn't been quite enough attention to but will increasingly need to is you know the Ukrainian economy is basically hanging on by a thread And the IMF says it needs about $5 billion a month instead of keep going Now Congress just spent $40 billion for a variety of sources But how many times will Congress or Europe be willing to do that So that's going to be a big issue Now if Ukraine is successful in holding the Russians off they'll probably want to fight for getting the territory back And the question is how much will they try to go under Crimea Will they try to free some of the area in the east Those are some of the potential escalation scenarios that probably a Soros or Kissinger or at least cautioning people to think about But frankly we're at a stage now where we out to help the Ukrainians be successful and holding off the Russians The Russians are trying to frankly squeeze the Ukrainian forces in the east some of the better Ukrainian forces with a pincer movement from the north and the south and they're trying to move across the Black Sea coast and you've been reading about the effects of that with agricultural markets because a lot of the grains come from Russia and Ukraine A lot of developing countries are going to be hurt by this So again I think what part of the point that source is raising is they're ripple or even potential wave effects on this and energy food developing countries And we're just at the start of this Bob finally let's come back to your piece for a moment and analogy to Harry Truman It strikes me there was one big difference between then and now At the end of World War II as I read the history books at least the United States was beside the world I mean it had so much power Economic power military power compared to anybody else That's no longer true It's been evened out quite a bit I believe Does that limit what President Biden can do For example in the Pacific as he wants to put together this indo Pacific economic framework he wants to build up various relationships You see more limited than Harry Truman was But that's a really good point David But if you go back and I know we're talking about the book you've got to read the Truman chapter yet in 47 49 The key for U.S. power after World War II and all during the Cold War was the relations with allies and partners And even if you consider China today with its rise compare its allies North Korea may be Cambodia with the range that the U.S..

"Of inflation Well first David thanks for having me on it's always great to be on with you and to get into some more depth on some of these issues with regard to the indo Pacific economic framework we talked about earlier Unfortunately that does not include market access So it's not a trade agreement per se If it were it would help in terms of inflation that would help in terms of reducing barriers in the region And that's the next step that ought to be taken I'm not saying it's a bad thing I think it's a good way to sort of put our foot in the water again in the indo Pacific region with regard to the tariffs from China Remember those were based on a section three O one investigation which found that China was unfairly trading in those products and others So it's based on fairness It's not based on national security or other things such as section two 32 So we need to deal with that On the other hand I think it's in our strategic interest to have an exclusion process where as an example if you are an importer of one of these products from China you're facing a 25% tariff and you can not find that product here in the United States which is the case in some cases Then that tariff would no longer apply In other words if there's not any competition with an American company making the same product But where there is competition which is most of these cases in China is not playing by the rules I don't think you want to take away this tool of section three O one and the ability to put tariffs on China to help to level the playing field So fair enough on the fairness point on section three O one we start to China Come back to the IPF if we could for right You mentioned market access which is not part of this It's not sort of lowering tariffs as it were Would you be in favor of that and maybe even more important than what you would want Is that politically doable up on Capitol Hill these days.

A Bipartisan Effort Seeks to Create US Presence in the Pacific
"Can you explain a little bit to me what you and senator hirano are up to? Well, I think we see the region in the whole indo Pacific is extremely strategic and vital to America. We see China's very aggressive posture, just look what they recently done in the Solomon island. Signing a security agreement with the Solomon Islands that they are trying to use their typical means of corruption, the debt trap diplomacy they deploy, et cetera, to get more of these smaller nations to fall their way, whether it's to put pressure on Taiwan, whether it's to get more votes in these multilateral organizations like the United Nations. I think the United States needs to be more present and we need to have more connectivity in that region. We certainly have a major presence in Japan. You're well aware of you and I have talked about it many times before, but the largest component of U.S. Military stationed anywhere is based in Japan, why served as U.S. ambassador, most recently, and we have incredible strategic interest in the region. It's a vital area for growth, the busy sea lanes in the world and East China Sea, South China Sea, our interests are very much aligned with keeping a free and open region there in the Pacific.

In Taiwan War Game, Few Good Options for U.S. To Deter China
"Washington Post this morning 5 a.m. Dan lamothe in Taiwan war game few good options for you as to deter China. The center for a new American strategy ran a war game involving the dung shoe island. I'd probably mispronouncing that. Didn't go well. It didn't go well. And in fact, they're even worried about bigger scenarios than that. I'm not surprised that you surprised admiral. No, I'm not. I've participated in several of those war games over the years. U.S. indo Pacific command runs those on a regular basis. And they're increasingly reflecting the reality that China has many more ships much more capability in their aircraft, longer land based ballistic and tactical missiles. That's been on the upswing for a decade and more and it's starting to really bleed into the results of these war games in a negative way. In the end, the article says the best advice is that warn the Chinese ahead of time of the consequences they would face if they moved on any of the islands, including Taiwan, with Japan playing a significant role. Haven't we already done that didn't President Biden sort of accidentally do that in the town hall last week where he said we would defend Taiwan? Well, he certainly said that we would defend Iran and we have a commitment to do so. But then within 24 hours you saw both The White House spokesperson gen sasaki and The Pentagon in Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, kind of returned to this former policy. It's called strategic ambiguity of not telling China exactly what we're going to do. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, my own view is that a, we should, in fact, assist Taiwan aggressively if they are attacked. And B, it's time to tell China that we are going to do that. And I think there is a growing sense of that in the public conversation about this.

"And certainly not to the hill. Other than maybe a few small windows where people are thinking about it, let's not underestimate the human tendency hue to believe that tomorrow is going to look just like today. Maybe just a little bit different. Maybe there'll be a story about a football coach, but things won't really change that much. Except the history of the world tells us again and again and again, tomorrow doesn't look like today. Go back a hundred years ago to the start of World War I and assassin's bullet takes out a member of the royal family, the austro-hungarian empire. Four years later, the austro-hungarian empire is gone. The Russian Empire is gone. The Ottoman Empire is gone. Who could have predicted any of that, but it explodes in front of us tomorrow may not look like today. This is when we ought to be thinking about it. The one clue that I get from that is that you use the term indo paycom. Now, most Americans after 20 years of war are acquainted with scent comm. I really do think if you're a scent in American and you're reading the news or listening, you know what sent comment. Indo paycom not so much. And that is probably, is it the geographically largest command? Admiral? Oh, absolutely. I think half the earth literally is there. The second largest is the one I commanded U.S. European command. And we were large because of Russia being included. But indo Pacific includes the Pacific Ocean and here's a news flash for non Mariners in the crowd. You can take all the land on the earth and it will fit inside the Pacific Ocean. I want to sail across I once sailed across the Pacific, not only did we not visually see another ship for two weeks. We didn't come across one on our radar for a week. And our radar looked out 200 miles. So it's a big body of water. Yes, indo Pacific command is by far the largest of the combatant commands geographically. We have to start focusing on this. Before we run out of time, though, I want to do what I did with general McChrystal. General Odierno passed away over the weekend. I'm sure, like general McChrystal, he is a colleague of yours over many years and different commands. Any comments on general arena? As I'm sure Stan told you, rowdier, no, Stan McChrystal, Jim staff read us all graduated together in 1976. I hope stand by the way, pointed out that the navy football team beat the army football team on which ray Odierno played in 1976. But ray is smiling down hearing me say that. But he was a towering man 6 5 football jeans. Blunt direct, a Jersey kid. Nobody better. Nobody, you know, your finest friend, your worst enemy, if you had to fight him in the field. I loved Rea only or no. On that note admiral James Stanley, thank you so much for joining me again next week. Here we go and here if you're listening to my show for a while, you know I love meat. You know that. I love going to restaurants. I love a great steak. I don't have to go anymore because of Mike box..

So david could you respond to what biden said and also the fact that he seems now to be fulfilling the promise or initiative that obama had a suggested twelve years ago. Which is this idea of a us. Foreign policy pivoting to asia. In a way. I'm a bit tired of biden's words so he said some nice words that the un about diplomacy about humanitarian aid about not wanting a new cold war with china but his actions are very different. And for those of us like myself who supported his withdrawal from. Afghanistan is absolutely the right thing to do and the withdrawal was long overdue. He's turning his back on diplomacy with this announcement. This is far more significant than you know any words. He uttered the un about diplomacy and not wanting new cold war. That is what this represents. He is aligning these three powers against china. And i think we have to again. Ask how chinese leaders. How do we expect chinese leaders to respond china. This really risks setting off a increased arms race and we shouldn't be surprised if china looks to line up alliance of its own again Resembling the cold war and in so many ways this is really cold. War era thinking and in many ways nineteenth century thinking and i i really hope and think biden administration can be much better than that. We are in no position to be building to be spending any time any energy building military alliances at this moment when we have such graves security threats facing us from global warming global pandemics to hunger to inequality global poverty. Those are the kinds of alliances. We should be building and those are the kinds of alliances that the united states can building. I think really we. We have a choice now. We have a choice whether we want to firmly and finally turn our backs on war or more engaged diplomacy and a different kind of alliance-building focused on on the real security threats facing us or whether we want firmly and finally commit to new cold war with china that could be catastrophically damaging to the world. I mean it could make the catastrophe in the last twenty years of war where biased mid four point. Five million people died in the us led wars where we spent eight trillion dollars train with a t on war. This new cold war will strip even more fines from the the needs. They're actually facing us and plough more money into the military. Industrial congressional complex. This is the choice. Where facing so david vine e you have this amazing map in your new piece for the quincy institute highlighting every country where the us hasn't overseas military base around eight hundred us spaces including eighty in south korea. One hundred nineteen in japan. Take us on a tour in this last minute. We have and also talk about africa. Sure but by our estimate now about seven hundred fifty. Us military bases abroad in eighty countries and colonies. Seven hundred and fifty. This is more than any other country in the world and in fact it's probably three times. The number of all the other countries in the world combined probably the largest collection of foreign military bases in world history and as you mentioned there seven bases in australia. In total in the asia pacific region the united states easily has a almost three hundred foreign military bases surrounding china already and now calling for an increased build. There's been a growing collection of us military bases in africa as you mentioned Since around the early days after the attacks of nine eleven and it's a collection of basis that touches every continent except except and article. There is no reason to be building new military bases in australia or any part of the world biden administration needs to move in the other direction and it was moving in that direction by closing bases and withdrawing troops from afghanistan. It's should be building on that by closing more bases that are undermining us and global security. But it's not and again.
