Fresh update on "kissinger" discussed on ToddCast Podcast with Todd Starnes

"You're exactly spot on. Mark, good call, as always, and we're gonna have to watch it here folks. Biden's Biden's debacles on the foreign stage, and thanks for the call Mark. Biden's policies on the foreign stage are literally shoving us down a very dangerous path. Then you've got Mitt Romney, a writing in The New York Times, advocating for nuclear war, a Romney says that NATO could engage in Ukraine, potentially obliterating Russia's military. The Utah senator, again, I'm reading here from The New York Times, so Utah senator also suggested that the west confront China and other Russian allied nations with an ultimatum. You are either with us or you are with Russia, you can not be with both. Quote, Russia's use of a nuclear weapon would unarguably be a redefining reorienting geopolitical event Romney said. Any nation that chose to retain ties with Russia after such an outrage would itself become a global pariah. Romney warned that a cornered and delusional Putin could use nuclear weapons in the war against Ukraine, citing warnings from former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. As well as a CIA director William burns. Burns warned in April that Putin's desperation could result in the use of tactical nuclear weapons or low yield nuclear weapons. So what do we do at that point? I mean, do we engage? I mean, Russia is not stupid. They know they know that the United States is actually fighting this war, not the Ukrainians. Meanwhile, you've got Vladimir zelensky, who's going off he was at was at the Khan's film festival? I mean, the country's the country's been invaded and he's at a film festival. This whole thing never really made much sense to me. It really it really doesn't. And the level of corruption in Ukraine going back to the Obama years. And Joe Biden and Hunter Biden, the whole thing stinks to high heavens. But it concerns me that you have establishment Republicans suggesting that yes, nuclear war is in fact inevitable in the region. Do you really think the Russians are going to stop there? What's the over under that we're going to have nuclear bombs falling in this country? I mean, at that point, everything is off the table. Everything. They're playing a very dangerous game here at ladies and gentlemen, a very dangerous game, and that is why the Republicans have to step in. As a matter of fact, a majority of Republicans, there's a new survey out. A majority of Republicans say that Biden must be impeached if the Republicans take control of the House in the Senate. And for a whole litany of reasons. 8 four four 747 88 68, that's our toll free telephone number that's 8 four four 747 88 68. What do you do if you're Joe Biden? We've already pledged our support to Taiwan do we do we live up to our obligations with Taiwan and defend them from the invading Chinese? Or do we let them or do we fight another proxy war? But again, these proxy wars are going to come back and bite this country on the behind. Because sooner or later, there will be American boots on the ground if there are not already. In Ukraine. And there will be boots on the ground fighting this war in Taiwan when that day comes. And it's going to come. It's going to happen. Because no one is afraid of Joe Biden. Nobody. And they're laughing at Kamala Harris. And that's where we are right now as a country. All.

How Did Rapper Zuby Get to Where He Is Today?

"We've had many, many guests on this show in the last three years. Some of them can be known by their initials like DJT, the former president, but I don't think we've had anybody who just has one name. And we're never going to have Madonna, but today we have zuby with us. He's an entrepreneur. He's a rapper. A man with a fascinating background. I saw him first on my buddy's podcast trigonometry fans foster and constantin Kissinger zuby. Welcome to America first one on one. Hey, how's it going? Happy to be here. It's going very well so far so good. We are 90 seconds into this interview. And it seems to be going all right, but we have a ways to go. Let's start where my buddies Francis and constantin begin there. Superb interviews. How did you get to be where you are today? Where did you grow up? What's your training? What's your background? And perhaps the greatest interest to all of our millions of listeners across the nation. How did you get to be the world heavyweight powerlifter in the female category? Okay, well, that's a lot of questions there. So my name is zuby. I'm an independent rapper, author, host of the real talk with zuby podcast, public speaker and coach. I was born in England, my family background is originally from Nigeria. I actually grew up in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia, lived there for almost two decades and went to school there up until 5th grade. I then went to boarding school in the UK and studied computer science at Oxford University, which is where I also started my music career. And over the course of time, I have released 6 independent albums and EPs, sold tens of thousands of albums, independently, and yeah, I've added a lot of strings to the bow, started my podcast and wrote and released my first book in 2019. And have become well known as well for, I guess what you could call social or cultural commentary. So different people around the world know me for a different things. But I'm someone who is always trying to seek the truth, speak the truth and help motivate and inspire other

How KT McFarland Became the Person She Is Today

"KT McFarland's with me today. I can't been waiting for this one for a while. Got to run into her cpac with the crazy part about it is through all of our travels. We have been on TV together multiple times on interviews, but never in the same place. It seems like at the same time, especially with the last few years going. And so it was so good to be in the same room, not on the same convention center, but there with you in Orlando. It is great to have you on the podcast today. Well, I agree. I mean, I feel like I really know you well because I've been on television with you. We've talked to each other, but we've never actually met in person. And so here we are yet again, not in person, but it's good to be with you. It is. But it works out, great. Well, you know, one of the things is and especially the way life goes these days is we all have our backgrounds and where we come from. And people see us and make judgments, basically, you know, we're on TV or we're on the interviews, one podcast that was kind of like, one of the things I love to do with this podcast has been great to be able to do is sort of people see how we became, you know, you or how you became me and it gives people that background so that when they see you, they say, hey, I know where she came from. I know what was going on. So tell us a little bit about how you became you in a lot of sense. Gosh, that's so nice. Well, I started out as a freshman in college in 1969. I was from Madison, Wisconsin from a working class family, but I got a scholarship to go to George Washington University. But I needed a job. So I was a really fast typist. And through a series of accidents, got a job as the nighttime secretary in The White House situation, freshman in college. And I was working for Henry Kissinger in the Nixon administration. So I went to college during the day, majored in Chinese Chinese studies, wrote my bicycle, went to The White House situation room every afternoon, and then typed the first draft from what was then called the president's daily brief and is still called the president's daily brief. And that was the classified items briefing items that would be on the president of the United States is desk in the Oval Office every morning at 7 a.m.. So I typed the rough draft at night, somebody finished it off in the morning. And I did that all through college, through part of graduate school. And all of a sudden I got promoted after chain. And I was Henry Kissinger's research assistant. At a very young age, and so saw firsthand to some of the most extraordinary periods of American foreign policy. It was the opening to China, the end of the Vietnam War, the Paris peace accords. The detente with the Soviet Union, Middle East peace negotiations. So as a very young person in my late teens, early 20s, was exposed to people and events.

'The President's Man' Author Dwight Chapin on How Nixon Evolved

"Folks, welcome back, the book is the president's man Dwight Chapin. So you were with him from when you were a very young man to the very end of his life. Did Nixon change in your eyes? Was he a different man shortly before his death than he had been in the presidency in any way? Yes. I believe he changed. I met him when he was first after he had just been vice president and like with anyone. With doctor Kissinger, any of these men, I mean, they are getting older. They are getting that thing called wisdom, wiser, and they are working at a different pace. There's more space in discussions and thinking about things. So president Nixon to me was always the same man, but there was just this shifting and more of a relaxed thing about him. In the days when he's running for office and dealing with the political issues, that calls for basically a different kind of psychic than when you've moved to being an author and you're looking back and reflecting Bill Clinton had an interesting comment. He talked about Nixon's trip to Russia right before Nixon died he went to Russia, and he came back and he wrote this very long memorandum to president Clinton analyzing everything that was going on in Russia. So it was kind of a perspective mentality. So Nixon died and what was 2002 or something like that? And you're saying he went so after the Soviet Union had fallen, he Nixon went back. I didn't remember this. And one of the things he always did was to talk to all of the leaders on the way up that were not necessarily in power. So he never just relied on talking to whoever was running a country. He wanted to talk to the opposition and to the others involved.

How the Chinese Communist Party Works

"Most of the west learn how Moscow work, not from going to college and taking Stanley Hoffman or Henry Kissinger or anyone else who is talking about how the Soviets worked. And most of what they thought was wrong or they read the long telegram by mister actually turned out to be George cannon early on in the Cold War. No, they weren't Nixon. They weren't studying the briefing papers. They weren't Jimmy Carter who had an inordinate fear of communism. None of that, all those years of the Cold War, that's not how people learn in America. They read time, newsweek, and U.S. news and World Report, and they would routinely report on what was going on or so they thought or some correspondence in Moscow thought. And now people have watched the Americans and they get a view of how sleepers work, which isn't right. That's not how sleepers worked in the United States. They had lots of spies in the 1980s. That was one of my earliest jobs. If you're looking to hear it for the first time, I'm going to give you the quick bio in a second. But after the wall came down in the Soviet Union crumbled, people sort of put their communism studies away, thinking, oh, well, the Chinese are simply evolving to a market capitalism society and we will help them get there and everything will be comfy, hunky Dory in the world. Bill Clinton let them into the world of free trade, we accepted them into the world's institutions. And in fact, they're still letting us. And the country's difficult to understand. It's so big. It's so numerous in the billion people. And so opaque, that very few novelists have dared to try and describe how the country works.

that happened virtually a couple of days ago Right In terms of what's coming next then more from that forum because the Goldman Sachs head will be with us The CEO David Solomon speaking to frosty lacquer in just a few minutes time So do stay tuned for that We're going to bring it to you live Let's also bring you up to speed with the markets this hour European stocks close to record highs but

mentioned in passing the UK inflation story So let's get some details inflation in the UK accelerated faster than expected in the month of October Piling the pressure on the Bank of England to raise interest rates consumer prices rose 4.2% from a year ago the fastest pace in almost a decade and more than double the target rate the pickup was largely driven by temporary factors including natural gas and electricity prices but the Bank of England is concerned inflation could take roots and further squeeze living standards Well we've had more reaction to searching inflation in the U.S. the St. Louis fed president James bullet says that the Central Bank should speed up its reduction of monetary stimulus He told Bloomberg the committee would also have the option to raise rates while the taper is ongoing if it wants to move faster In top corporate news Elon Musk sold their Tesla shares for a 7th consecutive trading day more from Bloomberg's Doug Krishna The latest sale brings mosque roughly halfway to his promise to unload 10% of his stake in the company on Tuesday alone he sold shares worth about $973 million Now to reach the 10% threshold he would need to sell some 17 million Tesla

talking to companies that are in our supply chain and ministers here to say let's collaborate with our partners Tomorrow I'll be in Malaysia A good part of America's supply chain is in Malaysia Some of the factories went down due to COVID outbreaks which had disruptions obviously in America Some of the factories went down due to natural disasters So we're saying okay how do we work better together How do we improve resiliency and transparency So we get rid of these choke points and bottlenecks We have to talk about trades We had from U.S. trade representative Katherine Tai talking about a possible recoupling with China In a new normal in the area of trade but in the U.S. and China what is that exactly How do you define it Yeah Well we want trade obviously We want trade as good for U.S. business exports are good for U.S. business but it needs to be China needs to play by the rules They need to respect our IP They need to live up to their commitments You know right now for example in the so called phase one deal where the Chinese committed to purchase a certain amount of aircraft and agricultural products they're not doing that They're not living up to their commitments So you know we want a level playing field We want everyone to play by the rules and then of course we do want trade and exports Good for American business The U.S. is also talked about using new tools to address Chinese practices What are these new.

"Even Jared Kushner Jason grant. I think had the same view, even though I don't agree with the way that they went about trying to make peace. I still think there was a consistency there. And kissing, I think, often gets a bad rep, both in Israel and in the American church community. And they're raised for that related to the way, in particular, that he pressured Israel in 1975 and pressured Israel at the end of the Yom Kippur War. But in retrospect, we say two things about that. First of all, that it produced the Israeli peace treaty. I played the foundation for that, which is redundant to the immense benefit of Israel. Took Egypt out of the conflict in for all intents and purposes. The state to state conflict between Israel and the Arab states. That eventually to this normalization of the other Arabs. All of that starts with kissing. But it starts with him, having to have knocked down drag out fights, which are detailed in the book. First between prime minister of the mayor, then between prime minister he hit sacrament in his first time as prime minister and Shimon Peres who was defense minister trying to make them understand. Wyatt was in Israel's interest to give up territory in a calculated way. In order to justify the peace process, strengthen America's credibility in the region and by time. And this is the thing that I think is the art in kissing just to plan the city. He strongly believed that Israel needed time. And that giving up pieces of territory to buy time was the best strategy for Israel's survival. And when we look back now, we see how right he wants that time that Israel giving up territory. He brought time to strengthen itself to end its isolation to build its relationships across the world and to give Jewish genius and ability to grow, burden into the high-tech industries and so on that we say today in Israel..

"Solve the French in the way that we did. And so I think a question marked about that. It's not a, I think the guy in the Kissinger would have played, although he didn't have much time for the French. But I think the great lesson of what Kissinger was able to do was that he understood that first there has to be an equilibrium in the balance of power. And then there has to be a mechanism for advancing America's interest. Now, his mechanism was getting Israel to agree to limit it withdrawals in exchange for commitments not to go back to war on the part of the Egyptians in the Syrians. And that was short of peace, but it was a process that he managed very effectively in the analog to that is, but Biden did have handedly with the UK USA Australia agreement. What's really trying to establish an equilibrium in the balance of power with the Chinese. So I give him how much for the concept. It's quite Jerry. But the implementation was problematic. Let me talk to another issue in your book that was quite fascinating to see you write about Kissinger's jewishness. Whatever his level of observance during the years where you're writing. That as a factor in his Middle East peacemaking success. That when negotiating with Israelis and Arabs, his Israeli interlocutors as you describe it, received him as being a member of the family in some sense. And has ever been to marketers saw that perhaps he would have more influence in delivering Israeli concessions were those perceptions and assumptions accurate and from your own experience have the Jewish U.S. Middle East and negotiators who followed Henry Kissinger found this to be the case as well. Yes. I think the Kissinger was very unsure of himself when he started was very defensive and he never visited the Arab world before he went into government, or in his first 5 years in government. When he was national security adviser, it never visited the Arab world his first visit came after the 1973 young people war. He had never written about the Middle East. For all of his brilliant studies of European 19th century order he wrote this brilliant book called the world restored, which was based on a study of castlereagh and met Nick, establishing the post Napoleonic order in Europe. But he'd never written about the Ottoman Empire..

"Without and therefore, if you follow Kissinger's principles, they're made to be a workable piece process between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Which is missing at the moment. And his view of how to do it is worth pondering now because his whole approach was gradual, incremental, step by step diplomacy was his formulation. His concept. And had we stuck to that back in the days of Oslo, everybody kind of trash results like these days. But we forget that Oslo is a gradual incremental process. It had no defined endgame. It was designed to have Israel withdrawing stages. That's exactly what Kissinger did. With Egypt and took Egypt out of the conflict with Israel. But that was abandoned by Al Barack and Bill Clinton. At the end of May I was part of that process. Exactly. I'm so glad you brought yourself into this because I really wanted to ask your own experience, whether you followed that kissing Gerry and gradualism that you describe in your book in your own role in special envoy. Well, let's back up to the time with Clinton when I was part of his place team and I was the time of Camp David, where we went to Camp David to try to resolve the conflict, something Kissinger would never have done because he didn't believe it could be done. He believed in a gradual long game. But we were under the influence of Eric Barack, who had his own calculations politically because he no longer had a majority in the class. And he pressed Clinton to go for it. Clinton was in his last year in office and he decided that he too would go for it, which was an example of what Kissinger warned about. Particularly for American statesman leaders that they are drawn to this idea of immortality and universality. And it's much more attractive than his gradualism and maintenance of the balance of power. And so, you know, Clinton succumbed to the siren song of comprehensive deal, which Aaron Barack was insisting on..

In the beginning of the biden administration the policy was very close to some of the trump administration's policies As i wrote in my column recently at the united nations joe biden made clear that he's reverting back to the appeasement policies they call it. diplomacy oriented but diplomacy in the name of appeasement is still appeasement. And that's what we're beginning to see. There's some welcome of this new policy on wall street which again has been seeking to do business in china for many years under the idea that if we just trade and do business with this communist state that it would have a modifying influence. It's been another failure. A lot of the wall street executives wanna go to that the banks however many of the us and international banks are recognizing that it's time to pull back from china.

So i got a part time typing job in the west wing of the white house and the white house situation room.

"The Jerusalem Post this is breaking Saudi Arabia has signed some kind of joint military cooperation agreement, which with Russia And Iran and Russia. Uh, are are going to be involved soon in a, uh Joint military exercises, and this is just the beginning. I think I even think in our own hemisphere south of the border of some of these Communist regime stick around when some of the others I think we're going to see this spread. So much of what we've done under both parties over more than half a century. Um, to establish our Our strength. Has just thought that it's so much of it is just melted away. I'd be curious of your of your opinion. I'm afraid you're right, Mark. You know what's happening now It's just a continuation of what happened in the Obama Biden there now that it's the Biden era, Russia had been a peripheral player in Middle East if a player at all since 1973 when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger help eject them from Middle East, and Obama basically invited invited him back in after the Syrian Red Line fiasco when he refused to enforce his own red line. And now you've got countries like Saudi Arabia, longstanding partner of the United States, who see what's happened with Joe Biden's bug out in Afghanistan were abandoning not just Afghans who helped us but even our own citizens, and they think they need to start cutting side deals to protect their own interests. You know, some people compared what's happened over the last week in Afghanistan. Having decided on in 1975. And remember what happened. Saigon in 1975 small foretaste of what Lay ahead, Laos and Cambodia fell almost immediately. You had the horrors of Paul Pot, then become a rouge. Cuba is sending shock troops all over the All over Latin America and Africa as well. Russia invaded Afghanistan. Um, so for years that reverberated. I'm afraid that Joe Biden's impotence and incompetence in Afghanistan will reverberate for years to come

Rudy Atallah on Evacuating Americans From Afghanistan

"Is he so cold and callous in stubborn. I found the answer today. I think it was reported by richard. Holbrooke it was in. Richard holbrook's diary. He was the special envoy to afghanistan into pakistan and the obama administration. The atlantic reported a revelation from his diary about joe biden. This was back in two thousand ten. According to holbrooke diary when he was asked about he asked about. American obligations to afghans like the girls and the kabul school biden replied with a history lesson. Saying this f. that we don't have to worry about that. We did in vietnam nixon and kissinger got away with it. This is from a credible person. In the obama administration that was two thousand ten and now these remarks we hear until twenty twenty unacceptable. The late richard hall Saying that biden back then said f those people we can just screw them over like we did. In in in in vietnam between eleven and forty thousand american stock in afghanistan. And we're being told by the retired fullest. I'll general who happens to be the secretary of defense that we don't have the capabilities to evacuate them when at the same time rudy. We're hearing that the british with a much smaller armed force a much smaller army is actually rescuing not only their own citizens rudy there. Rescuing the irish citizen to stop there. So can you give us. I'm not talking about politics. Can you give us some factual basis for one. America can cannot do. I mean we. We can definitely evacuate all these people. It's it's the. The problem is as a priority normally. When you do noncombatant evacuations or nieto's. I've done several of them You you delegate.

All that stuff is out there for us and we can. We can definitely leverage our capabilities And do it. The problem we have with this current administration is instead of giving dot the priority to do the evacuation. They've turned that priority over to the state department which is not equipped at all to essentially run a neo. And that's why we're having this discombobulated evacuation it's

How Have US-China Relations Changed Since 1971?

"With president biden now at the helm and the chinese economy predicted to overtake the us. In just a few years. How have relations between the two nations changed since kissinger's visit in nineteen seventy one. And what is the future of these two superpowers who better to ask than vincent. Knee the guardians china affairs correspondent who presented a documentary on bbc world. Service called when kissinger went to china. I started off by asking him. How nineteen seventy-one meeting came about what to some extent. It was a multi year project. Starting with both sides signaled intention of contact. This was initially conducted a very quietly and in a very subtle way beginning with the us. Calling china it's proper name at people's republic of china instead of red china or communist china and in beijing mao also wants to get in touch with richard nixon and his administration so they stay on the media's began to reduce the use of blessed capitalists. The things like this a eventually president. Nixon told pakistani president. Y'all calm and yao coundon tote chairman mao. That's the americans was serious. So that was the beginning of this contact. At in retrospect it was a very practical way of changing the course of the cold war. If you think about in the ninety sixties seventies when richard nixon came to power in ninety sixty eight vietnam. War was still a huge controversy in the us. Adding china around ninety sixty nine. There was a border war between china and the soviet union and around around autumn nineteen. Sixty nine It was rumored that's soviet union wants to to plan a pre emptive strike on china's so chairman mao at the time was really looking for a way out of this. And of course you know for nixon. I going to another communist big power. They wanted to change the triangular relationship between the us soviet union and china

The end of times for conservative rule in australia and wetlands visit to china had sort of served as a punctuation. Mac i guess in some ways and mcmahon reacted. I think it's fair to say fairly emotionally. And then when he realized that he'd been blindsided. And i've just been reading the long speech that he gave to the victorian division of liberal party. That was on the twenty eighth of july seventy one after it emerged that kissinger had indeed gone to picking on the secret mission and embarrassed the australian and government. Which of course was holding fast to. Its its previous policy. His long speech victorian division was an attempt by mc non to get himself out of a policy. Cul de sac at makes interesting reading today and it would be another twelve months before we had a change of government australia but effectively. This as china policy was concerned the die was caused as you mentioned nixon. My that spectacular announcement on july fifteen signed that not only had kissinger bane to john or on a secret mission but that he nixon would also visit china now.

"So excited that you hear him dose of leadership. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Richard lied to be with. You should have some fun today. Yeah it's a true honor really your your expertise in your your the leadership junkie of all junkies. I think i love your book. The leader within uh. It's really good and it speaks resonates with me deeply. You're the first person that use these three terms. And i've been saying this a lot for the past few years about i thought the keys to unlocking transformational leadership. The compassionate side for sure is authenticity. Transparency vulnerability. I saw those three words a coin together. Your book a handful of times. And it just. I just love that so. You're the first person that i've seen. That's coin those three together. So i appreciate very nice you to say. Thank you very much really interesting experience. When i was working at the white house as appointments secretary to president ford and it was one of these times when i'd been appointed. And maybe you've had this experience to richard where you know right away that maybe you're not quite up to the job. You got a lot to learn. And wondering as fast as i could at the people i was hanging out with you know and i don't do this to namedrop to suggest you sort of how i was feeling at the time you know. I was there with don rumsfeld. Dick cheney colin powell. Bob gates brent scowcroft henry kissinger. That was the senior team. Now i was a part of that team. And so i and i was new to the white house. Twenty nine years old new politics and that's didn't feel like i was quite up to it quite good now. So we had a meeting of that group in the oval office one day with the president as they drifted out. I hung behind. Speak to present. I said mr president. I speak with these. Yes sit down. I said mr president not experienced enough. I'm not smart enough. I'm gonna make a mistake. It's going to embarrass you. And and here's my letter of resignation. And i put on his desk and he looked at it for a moment and he swivelled his chair to look out across the south lawn of the white house rose garden and he came back to me and he said you know warned. The very fact that you've said this to new to me makes you qualified to be here. The fact that i was vulnerable transparent and honest with him he knew he could trust me from that point in time as a result of that he trusted this whole farm kid with a lot of stuff that he showed it ever trusted to do but it worked out to be a really nice relationship. I learned early on that. Those three words are key to really deep relationships. I agree a hundred percent. And i love that story. I remember reading that book. You're right. That's where the first time i saw this phrase those three words together based on that story. What a great baptism by fire for for being around the greatness in being the witness as you open up the book to a standing there once nixon official he was going to resign. And you're able to witness ford kind of sit. There process. what was happening the gravity of what was happening and then go into action. I love that kind of inside baseball aspect of that. Of course. I remember that moment when it happened to but just to be there to witness that. It's just amazing when you're in your twenties late twenties but still you know just honored to be there to to witness the transfer of power and the ability of someone to grasp the significance of what was happening. You and then act upon that significant at that moment in time was really a profound leadership lessons for me. It is stayed with me my whole life to to gather in the data and the information the facts and then to have a plan to act on that and In the precise moment when you need to act yeah right is some of us could have said well. Let me step back from this for six months and figure this out that day he said i. I'd like to have the following six people here at seven. Am tomorrow morning for a transition team. Me and we walked into that room the next morning. He pulled from his jacket. Five pages of notes. He had a vision for what that transition was going to be. And that was a significant leadership.

Why China’s Move to Rein In Hong Kong Is Just the Start

"China's move to exert greater control over the semi independent city of Hong Kong caused more turmoil over the weekend does protesters to fide social distancing rules and clashed with police who fired tear gas and a water cannon arresting at least one hundred eighty people critics of. Beijing's move to impose a national security law on Hong Kong. Say that it is an attempt to stifle descent putting an end. The city's independence. The White House said yesterday that China will likely face sanctions for its actions in Hong Kong. So admiral the China is becoming more aggressive by day. Fairly remarkable if you look at it just in recent history that they are responsible for the unleashing of a pandemic that has wrecked the world. Economy killed So many people. We don't know where that death count is going to end up and instead of being back on their heels or working aggressively for a vaccine or are reaching out to the world community. They are actually Acting more aggressive whether it's toward Hong Kong toward Vietnam or even in the concentration camps inside their country what what is going on what. How is the United States failed in its response to Shave Power? And why in the world can we do moving forward? Let's start with the premise. Here let's go back to twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty nineteen teams like a long time ago. We already had a rich basket of disagreement. China South China Sea huge body of water. China claims it in its entirety. Five G. The network controversy as you mentioned the territorial disputes around the edges of the South China Sea with Vietnam the Philippines Taiwan additional pressure on them trade and tear disputes. So we have this very rich. Unfortunately basket of disagreement. Now you drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of that which is called Kobe. Nineteen irresponsibility of the regime in allowing that to get into the wild so to speak. And so you really have this witches brew of relationships and Newsflash. It's occurring during an election year in the United States in which the trump administration predictably is going to maximize the ability to use China. Like opinion OUGHTA and beat it for electoral advantage. So terrible fact pattern. At the moment I think the real question you nailed it show is. What do we do about it? And I'll tell you three things very quickly. I we need a strategy that means not just episodic responses but thinking about diplomacy economics military deterrence bringing that Inter Agency sensibility to the challenges of China. Secondly even more important. We need international coalition. That's all of our allies. In the Pacific and many Japan South Korea Australia New Zealand Malaysia Singapore Thailand be at Phnom Increasingly. We need to internationalize the response to China and that includes the response to co did in third and finally we need to recognize. We've got a bend this relationship with China. We've got to change the terms of it. But we don't want to break it. I E get ourselves stumbling into a Cold War. It's going to be complicated and from now to November is going to be a very difficult stretch water. Well as you talk about. Strategy the United States needs to develop a long-term strategy. We just need to start by having a coherent message to send to the Chinese. We've been so erotic if you look at the president's fawning praise of President Shea and of course we always talk about what he said on January twenty four th when he thanked president she for his transparency and all the great work China was doing. That was a bizarre tweet to send out at the time. This is also the same president. Who who saluted she for consolidating power in the past has more power than anybody since Chairman Mao in that country? But you have that fawning praise one moment Max moment you have a continuation of these erratic trade skirmishes where the president doesn't have an overall strategy and then follow that up with occasional master tweets and insults toward the people of China just because seems to be checking that off his list for the campaign. It's really hard to figure out where Donald Trump stands when it comes to China because any any attack of China any critique of China is usually followed up by the president talking about what a wonderful leader Person President Xi is exactly and reference our earlier conversation. What do you want leaders to do? You want them to bring order. Out of the chaos. He want them to have a plan. You want them to communicate in steady waves and what we don't want to do with China is treated like an on and off switch on the wall that we turn on. Oh we love China. Then we turn it off ups. We're going to get into a war with China. We've got a dial it in. It's like estate like the dimmer on the wall. In your dining room we have got to be able to have a coherent strategy. That is steady and finds balance not this jagged on and off. Switch all the time and again. I'll close on this Henry Kissinger said late last year that we were in the foothills of a Cold War I think we are continuing to ascend that mountain. It is a mistake for both nations. We need to confront where we must when the behavior warrants but we ought to try and find ways to cooperate where we can confront where we must cooperate where we can build a strategy Admiral Stavridis.

believing you're hyperbole I once you get your hands on this new book called White House from doctor Tevye Troy bestselling author and former White House adviser okay he's been on the inside he's known as and researched and studied this and he's right about now with his book White House rivalries in the White House from Truman J. trump Dr Troy welcome to the show good to have you with us thanks bill Bradley on talk about played out hello this is this is it this is exciting you know that you know to put this out because you know this conversation has come up from time to time and you always hear from you know the hyperbolic that downhole trump is the worst ever and then you you start bringing back some of the the stories and histories and now here it is you've documented it I imagine if you wanted to go back even before Truman we we have to do episodes inch you know volumes of all the fussing happening in the White House right no absolutely and and we know that they were fighting before experiment where we are perfect I mean you look at the administration of Washington and Hamilton and Jefferson murder each other's throats but the difference is they were cabinet members and when I try to get that in my house how the dynamic change once we had the creation of a White House staff there was no real White House staff before Roosevelt and Truman the first person to enter the White House staff and make change the dynamic in that certainly you have the people who are close to the president meaning in the same building advising him on foreign policy and economic policy and then you might have a treasury secretary or spectators biggest ticked off that somebody else is inviting in his area that was one thing that changed in that that meant that I wasn't quite interesting to note that that the dynamic in the entrance of more humanity just because the more issues right yeah look and government was growing mistake became higher and then also you have this right the best celebrity White House aide the whole idea of a White House staff was supposed to be people with a passion for anonymity but that went away pretty quickly especially in the Kennedy administration when he hired people who are already famous like orcas lessons or to work in the White House is suddenly how celebrity White House they had its own reputation has long ties to the craft and they they could get their word out there if the policies were not going their way and to suddenly you have this idea of leaks and counter leaks you can make you look good in the press and that also at the White House right now make that I talk about the book in the course that is continued and become almost like a to the degree of a tender green black belt when you talk about all this and leaking and stuff going on you know but bad enough that it happens in DC but now of course with the most recent refill we understand that even ambassadors in our state department is running rampant with it as well yeah well you talk about ten degree black belt and that that was Henry Kissinger I'll tell you one great story that's been quite how's that Kissinger was dating Jill St John a very attractive bond girl actress Mandy comes out in the papers that Kissinger's dating this woman and Kissinger ghost and extending complains that his rival Christy William Rogers leaked the information about your retaining but the truth is that your lease it because a he wanted everyone to know he was dating that the truck the bond girl would be he wanted to hurt Rogers any internal wars and bribery deposit so what happened what was it what was the conclusion that well well written exam would rail about all the leaking that happened at the state department and constant complained about it but just not your fat it but at least some of the time we know the kiss your will the guy doing the leaking and then blaming the state department and of course everybody knows because your date of birth second longer up there with a win win corrective measure like you would can degrade black belt in Plato's exactly so he gets the he gets the reward and the award let's talk about president Truman we touched a little bit on that I mean he he he was I guess the modern era of the expanding the staff and and really kind of bringing this into play and of course it's just been kind of kind of a a monolith that like the blob is just been growing unto itself right yes Sir but instrument you have the right there were just unbelievable I don't I'm a presidential historian I've been putting this stuff for decades and the story behind in spite house were were things I'd never even heard of and one breaks during the ministration is that the secretary of state George Marshall as opposed to the recognition of the state of Israel which is flabbergasting to update the business interest on July especially right there at that critical time because it was true and that led the battle for inferred knowledge meant of Israel that would that would be very fight with marshals on the wrong side of it Clark Clifford a junior White House beat it on the right side of it make an argument in front of Clifford Clifford and Truman and Marshall are all arguing out in the White House Clifford wins the argument Truman recognized Israel Marshall is still mad that he never again the clippers or mentions his name for the rest of life right yeah right because so it's pretty petty but yeah such as such as you can't be the government the illusion of the Kennedy Camelot regime you said was not devoid of conflict as well of course in Kennedy do you have this notion of Camelot music wonderful people sitting around a table can you never even heard the term Camelot elections administration that comes from our interview that took place after the administration after he was dead yes but even in the administration there was fighting taking place especially between Lyndon Johnson and Robert F. Kennedy canteen was the product any would be turned general and the president brother Lynn Johnson vice president that you hated each other going back to their time in the Senate together when we can't even the lowly staffer and Johnson with the Senate Majority Leader and they had these nasty nicknames for him brought Robert if they reported Johnson is ruthless corded phone and get a canny referred to by Johnson as bunny boy really didn't like each other and they're always trying well anyway and we've known that that that tension what is it was pretty extreme there between them what else within the Kennedy at Camelot compound anything else that you discovered yeah there was a a a a rivalry between artists less intervention before they collect their prize winning historian who came to the White House when the first intellectual ever worked in the White House and then there was Ted Sorensen it was not as well known but he was closer to Kennedy and there was tension between them that continued even after the administration because the two of them we're kind of bracing to get their books out first hand stories then asked her to stop and stop writing his books but it's different in different book out first plus you're obviously would not agree and there were and the race was on and it it colored their relationship there's tension between them that went on for a long time and I got to imagine especially after the assassination these rivalries it would increase all the more would they not yeah and if there is one great story that dean Rusk with the sector state did not like that Slazenger called him brutalized in silence in meetings during the Kennedy administration implying that he wouldn't say anything that's a rough put it out there the only reason he was silent in meetings this lessons are within the facilities are respected leaker and we would talk about everything that he heard needing three wins Mr this is this is great fun Dr Chevy try I'd say it's good fun because you know the politics is just right for comedy it's it's when we take it too seriously like at times we're doing right now in this current environment then we deprive ourselves of of the little bit of humor in thank you Dr drive for presenting

"Of your book from Henry Kissinger one of the major characters in your telling this is a mass of work up detail so I begin with a dramatic moment in your telling is April nineteen seventy three the central cell this is an organization a military organization in North Vietnam I believe the famous general gap is part of it what is the central sell what is its proposition in April of seventy three central cell was a very very secret planning organization formed by journal shop in the in their journal staff and basically what he had asked the several high ranking offers to do was to go out and create a planet to conquer South Vietnam militarily the next couple of years and their job solely with the take a look at historical precedents take a look at the existing balance of forces on the ground the potential for resupply from their own allies and US three intervention and to see if they could calculate a military plan to conquer South Vietnam within two years and bear in mind age signed the Paris peace accords two months earlier saying that they would not do that right so what we have here is the military unit charged with conquering what has just affectively been turned into a cease fires on an armistice with the lengthy negotiations between the U. S. South Vietnam North Vietnam and other players in Paris there are ironies within everything but I take one of the quotes in your book George more than any other a I think it's something like a I've I've got a coalition government is what you agree to in order to destroy a coalition government and that's pretty much that methodology that the north was using what about that all the many common issues they were trying to sort of if they couldn't win militarily they try to win politically which is to make the American force to Q. government out replace them with some sort of neutralists or they called third force people and then once they were in power little while the comic would eventually take over without a shot being fired there are factions in the north in North Vietnam in Hanoi that George identifies and they are all organize themselves around the prime minister in a previous prime minister all one femme femme dong and the other trong Kim now you put this as guns versus potter but with the way I read it George's North Vietnam was exhausted and have been badly bloodied in nineteen seventy two and there wasn't unanimity in committing troops again to taking on South Vietnam is that correct that's correct they were a are very much afraid of destroying the social experiment North Vietnam they weren't sure if they could get their their own resupply frown allies their troops were exhausted they had big battle taken heavy casualties in seventy two and they were just little appetite among a certain group of people in the bowl of beer to restart military well warfare because there was an economic plan and they were very much interested at least part part of the politburo with continuing the conversation with Henry Kissinger because part of the Paris peace accord was a lot of money a lot of U. S. cash to be directed to a Hyundai I and they there were some who wanted the money more than they wanted to shoot well they wanted the money but they wanted the money buying strings attached there was certainly yeah the heavy bombing in seventy two would destroy what little infrastructure they had left up there and so they they didn't want to simply you know because we I'm might be gone back to the stone age but they have go back to rebuild their country Z. past peace accords called for a ceasefire an armistice zone but some parts of the Viet nam the north Vietnamese army the people's army of Vietnam continued to fight you name one particular senior colonel which is like a brigadier general in our ranks in M. R. nine lead doc on and he was insubordinate in in launching attacks is that correct that's correct it would act again what what a surprise to us that then leader gonna actually became the president of North Vietnam about Vietnam combine Vietnam in nineteen eighty seven so obviously is disobedience didn't decorous political career but basically the MRO nine was the lower half the delta the furthest point away from North Vietnam you can possibly get and basically he said I'm not going to stop fighting because to do so we retreat back in the order zones will mean the sure death of us and so he continued to push forward aggressively he pushed forward aggressively and her no I watch this and was looking for ways to read whether they we have whether they had strange to push the fight ugh yeah you mentioned him a very significant figure often given credit is sort of the Napoleon meets Eisenhower of North Vietnam there were all these anecdotes your George in your book to tell me what history might have been for example a for example **** goes to of gallbladder operation in Moscow in January seventy four he was very ill and his sub commanders were also weigh on medical leave so the leadership was not vigorous at this point of the war well he went away his deputy had gone away but there was another deputy who'd gone earlier for some heart issues along when Ty who would come up out of the of the B. two front which is a southern command of us out of Vietnam and he took over he knew what job wanted he was close to the polar bear with so he knew what to do and he did a very good job of monitoring and hearing to build their strangling for without the presence of a job in an event in his own or was it the commander will speak of the Americans in the south Vietnamese in a moment where Jon just identifying the factions and the thinking and the young society that's what I get from your book charge the anxiety in the north to take on this American backed military in the south that have lots of very good equipment and also could call on air which North Vietnam could not call on a detail here also the north Vietnamese continued to act as if they were of following the Paris peace accords in you ironically say that they they tried to find passages that didn't exist to allow them to continue to attack but one of the ways they strongly Americans along was to not talk about M. I. A.'s did they understand American psychology that the M. I. A.'s was a persuasive political issue absolutely they were well aware of the impact of the the MIA issue one Americans in many ways that they have a guesstimate that we would do anything to get our prisoners back so they were trying to use that leverage at least a little bit to gain political confessions economic concessions and also don't forget they want to get some other high ranking cadre that the south Vietnamese of kind of kept back themselves they wanted those guide released to sell in by the late seventy four the politburo has made a decision to go and we're going to speak of a battle that's critical for their understanding of the state of Vietnam a south Vietnam's army at this point but can I have this date written down thirty September nineteen seventy four the politburo votes that they have a small window to overwhelm the south is that the date to where they all you unite on this idea of attack no that actually made a decision to launch military attacks back in may of nineteen seventy three so within three and a half four months of signing in Paris peace accords they made the decision to resume military offensive so from that time until September of seventy four they were planning they were testing if thou be the me there are rebuilding their forces and by that time the timbre of seventy four they decide okay we rebuild our forces the south Vietnamese have dramatically weekend we think it's now time to launch another major offensive the book is black April the fall of South Vietnam is nineteen seventy three to nineteen seventy four George fight is the author when we come back the American as in the south it.

"Richardson and Henry Kissinger wrote it talk to Martin so there at the time put it in their diaries their letters this Kissinger wrote quote deeply insecure Nixon first acted as if cruel fate had singled him out for rejection and then he contrived to make sure that his premonition came to pass it was said of Kissinger though he was a self made man who worships his creator that was not Richard Nixon Nixon was not an easy man to life and he knew it and it hurt he had a Dickens in childhood his dad was brutal and abusive a miserly tyrant two of riches brothers died in childhood won the golden curly haired baby in the family Arthur died in days from tubercular meningitis the oldest the prize the family Harel took years to succumb from tuberculosis splitting the family as his mother took took a what took him away to care for wrecking the family's finances young deck the middle brother made it into Yale and Harvard but his family could not afford to send them and he came to believe that it was his father's stubbornness there was a fault for refusing to describe the family cap who's tubercular tainted milk had killed his brothers his mother was cold should retreat into her closet to pray and is Nixon said famously never once did she tell him that she loved him that was not his family's way he came to feel as you told David frost in the famous television interviews that he wasn't lovable human being I left him plagued by an intense painful insecurity and self doubt he became Iago to his own whispering in his own here your low some creature no one like she no good in so many campaign the campaign with ferocity and ruthless aggression and in doing so he became a truly tragic figure we can glimpse the seeds of Watergate Nixon's actions as the precursor kind of John the Baptist for Joe McCarthy his red baiting campaigns which helped launch the McCarthy era were infamous but no worries that tragic flow clearer than in the matter of race here we come to another and yet well the good that he didn't is present a United States his record on race is checkered and revealing he wrapped in Whittier the quicker outpost in southern California in college he was the founder of a social club that remarkably for the nineteen thirties recruited and accepted black members when he first ran for Congress in nineteen forty six he spoke out for racial justice in the local and double ACP made him an honorary member in the same season that the Klan was burning crosses in southern California to defeat a referendum on fair employment WCS pier from which means someone is first Senate race in nineteen fifty one of his great supporters was guy named Kenny Washington a.

"The Tj approach next would know the basic way, Henry is going to go about it. But then he would not nitpick him. He would have enough confidence that they on the same page that he would let Kissinger carry it out. Well, when we in Beijing, and we were presented in October nineteen seventy-one with the Shanghai communique approach of the Chinese revolutionary and completely driven than what Nixon thought we were going to do that kiss. Joe left Henry had no way of getting back to the White House. And yet, he had enough confidence that the president would back them up that he adopted this radical new approach, and in fact, Nixon it. So essence president Nixon empowered, Dr Kissinger in backed them up. That's what everybody wants from from any boss in closing his. One last issue, I really wanna touch on take advantage of your crate expertise on China, not just having been there for the opening, but having been US ambassador there in the nineteen eighties and your your lifelong work. Where do you see u s Chinese relations going given the current climate in context? I'm glad I got other our interview, first of all, we're at the most serious juncture newest John of elections, I think since the opening, but certainly sends the tenement square massacre, by the way was a mask not an event. And as in as in past, we've had ups and downs in relationship, but it's usually been key to one issue might be Taiwan missiles or could be planes, colliding bombing the long embassy, etc. Now, we have a problem across the board because in previous courses even tenement square we didn't have that much interaction with the Chinese Chinese so much weaker than we were. Now, there is in power the established policy. You got that historical challenge of how we just two other, then you got into dependence across the board both up attorneys and problems. Number one. We're at a very serious situation. I would put the blame primarily trying to be objective on the Chinese because under she they become much more assertive overseas and much more repressive at home. I think the basic turning point started in two thousand and eight the financial crisis. We lost some self confidence and American people began to have a backlash against globalization and feeling populism, even back then, and so or poach some of the economic issues that changing and the Chinese and turn so that would we screwed up financially? They look pretty good at least for the time being, they had more power. They got more Troy ounces, so the problems with China asserting itself. Many of which legitimates because they are rising power. They deserve more seats at the table began, but under she they've really cracked down at a hole in the most agree example, of course, being imprisoning at least a million years with so many other examples could cite their aggressive militarily in the south and East China seas squeezing. Juan squeezing Hong Kong recently seen economic the turning away from the market become predatory America to Listrik and raising influence in some unacceptable ways in America, and other countries domestic societies. So all of this presents a new challenge, it doesn't mean we go to containment or decoupling, which is impossible. It doesn't mean we should be smart competitors. And I think we have enough assets if he got back together at home. And that's a big if then we can compete. Well, with the Chinese future problems, not ten feet too. I wanna numerate them here. So rather than ending into another Cold War. Trying to treat on enemy. We ought to be realistic a little firmer, and certain areas, and we have been, but be willing and being able to compete my Plum with the current approach. I think the Trump administration deserves some credit for recognizing China's. He competitor. We gotta make clue. We don't turn out automatically and the enemy, and they've gotten a Chinese attention in certain areas, but I think we're missing. What I would prescribe three main assets, we need to do with China, they have to relate to foreign policy in general in many respects number one. Get your act together at home not only get over this political pull of his Asian. But also, so we can get together and invest it off your science and technology, infrastructure energy, and so on and also restore the appeal of democracy, which is being destroyed. And so we can, we are soft power is very limited, and we can hardly talk about other countries systems were fooling whether own, so number one is to have a strong domestic base in mall, political and economic terms to work with your allies, for example, in its current trade will be much better off focusing everybody on the legitimate grievances with China. We have more leverage with China, and we should not have pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. I'd like to see rejoin that somehow because it gives us leverage economically, and it's important geopolitically. She want your allies to work with you not pick fights with your allies and talk about love letters with dictators and Thirdly multilateral institutions. We shot us sales on the foot by pulling out of the Rondo, the climate change not to mention the Trans-Pacific Partnership. So if we invigorate our assets at home, work closely with friends and allies and show.

"I have to tell you that contrary to conventional wisdom. I was the first American official in China after twenty two years. We'd Bokan off elation one thousand nine hundred nine no American officials until July seventy-one. We're on a Pakistani plane secretly find Beijing. So all Pakistanis up in the front, I was on the back of the plane with Kissinger, but as we got the Chinese airspace, I went to the front of the airplane, and therefore, I got into China of Henry. But what was it like going to Beijing in July of nineteen seventy-one, because Beijing, certainly doesn't look like what it looks like today skip should of the flavor of what it's like to be there back then why was particularly dramatic for me because my wife was born in Shanghai. And so I had a Chinese wife as the first American into China, of course, on that secret trip, we will hold up in the guest house. We didn't see anything the country, but you could say just driving through the streets, just bicycles. Everyone dressed in blue total. Contrast to the incredible change that has taken place now. But of course, the most dramatic aspect was talks with Joe ally, who immediately impressed with his knowledge, his skill, his charisma the most impressive diplomat. 'cause says he's so you go to the meeting, then, the president visits in February of seventy two and the result of that is the Shanghai communique, which in many ways, still sugar forms of foundation for U S Chinese relations. Why was that? So signage. Vacant. And how did that come because my sense was reading the book, is that it took a lot of work to produce that communicate it was an extraordinary document, because even today, people invoked, how many times you invoke forty five years later, a summit document, that's because it was unique not to mention the earthquake being aspect of this new relationship when we went to China, after the secret ship it, went back publicly on October seventy-one to prepare for the president's trip, the following February, including beginning draft that communicate. That's a lesson. People should learn today. You should have you communicates pretty well in hand before you have a summit. So, you know where you're going to end up not trying to do it out of the pressure of events. So we went over with a draft that was put normal diplomatic communique. We said both sides got along. We wanted to see where we could cooperate. We gave it to Joe the next day he came back and almost threw it on the floor. Literally said check with the chairman and this is absurd. We fought each other on a war. We haven't talked to each other for twenty to us, we hate each other. Now sunny, we got come. And communicate wasn't quite the language was general thrust. We got a different. I do want to have each side state. It's positions. Both an ideological issues and specific regional issues and on Taiwan, most key issue, and then where we can agree, we can put that in as well, but have more credibility, because we've invaded our differences. This will reassure allies, not selling them out, will not confuse publics who have to get used to being friends after being enemies and make much more sense. We immediately saw the virtuous we'll little panic because we had forty eight dollars left. We have to leave. So kissing Azmi redraft the whole thing until foyer, meant told me to wake them up at that point, which you didn't have laptops back. This type anyway. And then couldn't dictate there's nobody there and then he took it over at four o'clock. And we got everything settled, except essentially everything sound except the Taiwan issue, which is a little bit like MRs Lincoln and the play. But so it was a major Jan. It was historic because not only did not Ratto friends and allies. Although, obviously people with supplies new, but it was a much more honest document, but it included issues like anti hegemony which indicated that we were going to balance off the Soviet Union, and it's still invoked even to this day. The key issue was Taiwan, which we sell doing the president's visit and here, the Chinese made the major moves and they were willing to kick this down the mouse said to Nixon, I was in that meeting secretly get back to that, that we can sell this one hundred years, so they won't go into detail now. But basically, they agreed to open up with us while we maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan. Troops on Taiwan and kept it defense treaty with Taiwan, we, of course, had to agree to a vague one China, former I'm not saying we didn't move as well. What made this possible was to put aside for the time being the most intractable issue. So we could get on with other areas. Shouldn't it was present Jimmy Carter who analyze nineteen seventy in the US mutual defense treaty with Taiwan? So obviously, Dr Kissinger had tremendous visibility success as necessarily version, and subsequently. Also, as secretary of state, but he also had a lot of critics. He had critics on the left to complain about his policies, particularly Vietnam, but also in Chile and elsewhere, but he had critics from the right. Who argued that detente was a major mistake and many of those critics from within the Republican party. How do you answer those critics of Dr Kissinger's foreign policy? The Nixon Kissinger form, I admit that inevitably some mistakes. Secondly, that keep in mind, the major achievements. Many richer NS book, the open, China, they taught with the Soviets, which handed off more, stabilized relationship to succeeding administrations, which ended up finally and peacefully, winning a code, Laura, the Middle East shuttles to other aspects get back again, to your question that are not covet his book, as they wouldn't afford ministration. This is only one is southern African diplomacy, which went on for two years, I was also involved in that which we touted majority rule in a continent changing American policy and all but but independence to a coupla countries in Africa. But I think Kissinger's greatest achievement your what he had critics from the right analyst, but even when he was in office. But nevertheless, he managed to hold off on policy together in the wake of Watergate, and executive branch ocean of power as a result of Watergate, and congressional reassertion of tactical oversight people now forget it because he is controversial that he was the most admired and trusted bat on touch my Watergate in the US. So people he sort of an anchor in the middle of a lot of. Anger and anguish and had credibility abroad. So despite Watergate and the bad outcome of yet nam because of the enemies and then talk degree green. We manage to keep the Chinese and Russian channels without losing momentum. We couldn't make major achievements. He participated in some more Middle East diplomacy, and a couple of shuttles began to set the agenda for future ministration. So I think despite all the criticism he was getting he was sufficiently admired that he was able to hold off on policy together and America credibility. Together. He did make some mistakes. Well, what would you say was the most significant well, he would say that he should have moved more quickly after the gyp Shen shadow to Syrians and Jordanians. This is after the October seventy four seventy three. I don't I was not involved. It's not a cop out in the chili operation. My understanding is that essentially Nixon Kissinger aware of the moves against a Yandi. They know where came close to encouraging telling him to do it seems to me much less so than what the Kennedy administration with Deanna says nation, but you could argue that the chili issue fell into gray area in terms of what they're up to. I do not consider one of his mistakes Vietnamese, which I felt was by far the best we could achieve at the time. It was undermined by the fact that congress wouldn't enforce it with North Vietnam, the other one that's often cited as Indo-Pakistan where we leaned toward Pakistan, it wasn't just because they've been helpful in China opening there was intelligence suggests in India was not only looking at what became Bangladesh, but the other parts of Pakistan. So there's real concern. So those are some of the controversial issues, one could start you said down with Dr kitchen you do in the oral interviews along history with each other to anything in the interview surprise you not in substance. What's me was how he managed to call all those in such gr? Granular detail. He, he gives an book, kissing, Joe and Kissinger not only the TJ approach, but also tactical milestones, personal portraits of other leaders and insights on how you conduct foreign policy. So I think it goes, well beyond the event. So what surprise me one I could get six in get and Secondly, that he could recall this for anybody to do that. His man who did it when he was ninety three years old? I think you can read this book almost as, as a leadership business style book about how to get things done a lot of relevant, and it is acceptable with being very brief Ted Sorensen, one set about kissing once you put it down. You can't pick it up. So, but this is not fall to the one thousand memoir, category. Ted was rather rhyme man with always with a good one liner. By the way, I should say, we're going to promote this book, perhaps in a new way has maybe changed the title. We've got this idea from Tom local, towns and old front. I sent him a press. Release about the book coming out Kissinger on kissing. Injure he got it on a small cell phone and it cut off the last two letters of the title. So he got very excited ran out to get a hundred copies thanking the book he was getting with Kissinger on kissing. Okay. So we may use that title booth sale. Okay, I'll leave it up to your publisher. I'm curious just given that issue mentioned, it beginning of our conversation that there's a lot in here. That's relevant for today. Dry you out on that one point, I would take that. It's important to be strategic informed policy. That is I can borrow the framing from the book by Steven Covey secrets of successful people begin with the end minds. The Kissenger version is everything depends, therefore, on some conception of the future. That's on the book opens opens what other lessons, would you sort of see in the book that you wish presidents would take into consideration? Well, first of all, the president doesn't have to be an expert in foreign policy, but he if he's not, he's got to be willing to hire. Good people who can help them and listen to their advice. So that's to any ministry. I won't get into their current issues now. But that's a clear distinction. Are thank you gotta have compatib-. Ability, obviously between the president of the national security adviser, who has to make sure that all agencies get the viewpoint presented before the president, but steel honest broker the honest Boker, but also should have view of his or her own in order to instruct them you have to pay attention, obviously to the domestic scene, and what the freight will bear kissing with various injuries. Typically on background is trying to give the conceptual institute rationale for what we're up to, and I think that helped menu specs and carry out. So that's important. Now, the world is completely changed in so many ways in the most obvious being the internet and technological revolution. And how fat you got to react to events. And so, and so a lot of these lessons more complicated today. But I think the basic need to have the TJ approach as opposed to just tactics. Twitter's to have good people president willing to listen to them, not to have. Yes man, or yes. Women around that president and to make sure all agencies even if it's White House dominate like it was under Kissinger, and Nixon at least have a chance to get views. Aired something lasting lessons. It seems to me just you mentioned, the issue of technology Giardi thought in reading the book, what sort of remarkable how different things are today versus then when you were in Beijing in July of nineteen seventy-one you literally had no way to call on. He was sort of, like, e t. There were no connections. Whereas today, you can livestream Facebook from Tiananmen Square or anywhere else would world has changed remarkably very good example, because it's an example of Nixon Kissinger work together Nixon and Kissinger would agree on us..

"Come join him more than turn bought me over to the NFC. I had an interview in February nineteen sixty nine Kissinger that was only a few minutes, but he made it clear that he welcomed the bait within the administration. But also insisted on loyalty once policy decisions were made for the first year I was sitting in the executive office building. Now, the is now a betting across from the west wing and sending memos. The Kissinger about the future policy considerations contingencies, several of which were critical of Nixon and kissing policy because of the not not, despite that he hired me as a special assistant in February nineteen seventy people, a sense what, what does a special assistant to the national security adviser. Well, it depends on the particular national security about in my case. It was an incredible opportunity because he wanted one person short of himself to have a global view of what the administration. Is trying to do, so I was paired with regional experts, and I got to be involved in all the major issues of the time, including the ones that are treated in this book as join Kissinger. So the Vietnam peace negotiations. The opening of China arms control and taught with Soviet Union and middle shuttles and all of those hours involved, and he wanted to see how all the pieces fit together. He knew better than anyone. So I was very fortunate to be so well pleased, so you were at ground zero for a lot of history. Well, modesty, prevents me from acquiescing net? But I wouldn't deny, well, that's pretty impressive list of events to have had a front row seat at into participated in, let's talk a little bit about the book in how it came about. I will note for readers. This is actually very slim volume. I think people can get through it in, in a sitting or two. So also, they'll -able as an audio book for people like to listen to books, while they're driving, but tell us a little bit about what the book is about a few years ago. Katie mcfarland. I conducted a series of. Video panels on four or five key issues. And the Nixon administration KT foreign who went on to work for Fox News and correct. God and was briefly in the White House is deputy, Nashes, Cody of. And we covered the issues I just mentioned, plus the structure of the NFC. And so, at the end of these panels, I thought it'd be good idea to try to get Henry to look back with forty five year perspective, the thirty thousand feet level on these events. And he had never done it all history. This is first and only one not surprising. As well. And we have to talk them into it to be honest. But after one session, which is always thought we were going to do it was so good, even by his estimate, and we barely scratched the surface, he agreed series of five more. So the book is based on those transcripts that were videotaped, and what's amazing is that, when you read the book you see how ticket he is spontaneously without notes with forty five year old advance and early nineties, so anyone at any age being able to speak, this coherently would be marketable before Hindu, that on these events was really quite extraordinary. And we did very little to the transcripts. There was some repetitions few awkward sentences few trucks, structural changes in terms of placement of the material, but it's almost forbade them and it's really quite extraordinary. I should point out that he not only talks about those four key issues, China Russia, Middle Eastern Vietnam. But I tease out of him his. Thoughts on more generic topics that are relevant even today, for example, the need for strategy on foreign policy, the qualities, you look for in a leader. Hi, you organize administration to conduct foreign policy. What's the best way to negotiate his relationship to the president? So these issues transcend the specific events of the nineteen seventies. Well, let's talk about his relationship with president Nixon, Winston because obviously, for any national security advisor, that's the most important relationship to have in Dr Kissinger's, quite opening Frank about sort of what he brought to the table in what president Nixon brought to the table. It's always unimportant position under Nixon was a crucial position because Nixon wanted to dominate foreign policy as everyone knows he basically ran out of the White House. So this was his most important appointment at it's quite extraordinary, he'd never really met Kissinger, had heard about him and read about here. He was a conservative Californian with distrust of the east coat elite places like Harvard where Dr king. Jewish faculty members that actually and at the same time Kissinger was a Jewish immigrant working for years for Nelson. Rockefeller Nixon's primary opponent and yet a Nixon reached out and tap. The Kissinger turned out to be a perfect marriage. Nixon brought an incredible wealth of knowledge and thinking on foreign policy. I've worked for seven presidencies by far the most well versed, and I think strategic and any president that I've ever seen comes through. I think it is book. He had traveled extensively when it was out of office. And then, of course, he was vice president for many years. So he really knew what he was talking about, and had a strategic approach to foreign policy question that when you see he had a strategic approach, what do you mean by that, that you think of what you want to end up that you see how the pieces fit together whether issues linkages or how one country affects another, and that you don't just react to, discreet bents. Think tactically. That's the shorthand version Kissinger at the same poach Kissinger with. Them historic, or knowledge and philosophic knowledge, Nixon bought, practical knowledge and a sense of the domestic political underpinnings for foreign policy, and quaint with many of the world's leaders. So it was a very good fit to, they complimented each other a good example, both of them independently felt that we should open up to China if we could Nixon wrote about it, and fun affairs magazine in nineteen sixty seven his main motivation for opening Z felt the world couldn't be stable if one fifth of the world's people was left outside the world order. So he was thinking more in terms of world order perations Kissinger, although he would embrace that idea was primarily interested in leverage against the Soviet Union figuring that if we opened up with China, we would have impact on relations with Moscow. So they had the general same worldview sometimes for different reasons, based on different backgrounds, and then finally Nixon struck divide balance between how much he ran on policy how much he delegated so he set this TJ framework, often with the help. Memo's kissing you with my assistants would right? And he would approve a basic approaches, but then he would let kissing do the negotiating and carry out the tactical t tales, he had to make Hickson did the key courageous decisions. But then he was very comfortable with Kissinger implementing those decisions. Well, one of these, she's just mentioned China, and that's often held up as one of the greatest, if not the greatest cheap -ment of president Nixon's foreign policy key tells a little bit about how that came about because I think from today's vantage point where the two societies are integrated people flooded China all the time. There's a challenge tremor, what it was like, in terms of US Chinese relations or non relations in the nineteen sixties, or I think you're younger lesson is in particular, my not fully understand the environment in which Nixon kissing, you're working for generally, but also with respect to China, we had fought a war and career and the fifties with China, we had no contact sanctions mutual enmity for twenty two years. Nixon felt. As I said, in his foreign affairs article that you wanted to move as Kissinger. Now their motivations were the following number one didn't want the communist world to speak with one voice, which Moscow was doing. Secondly, we want a better relations with Moscow, but they were not going well. And we felt that if Nixon Kissinger felt that if we opened up with China, we get Moscow's attention. That was a controversial view wasn't it? Because at my sense was reading the book in other things that many Soviet experts said that, that would actually drive the Soviets further way. Absolutely good point, George Kennan. George Kennan Tommy Thompson for Colo and others. All said that if you open they could see the signals that were coming. I'll get back to hell implemented this decision. So they sense what Nixon was up to an said. If you go ahead with China, like this, you're going to relations with Moscow is an example of both stategic thinking in the courage of the president, not to mention Kissinger, they went ahead anyway, and we're prove invite because within weeks after the announcement of Kissinger's sickle trip in nineteen seventy-one leading toward Nixon summit, and seventy two the Russians who had been dragging their feet on a summit agreed to their summit with us. We made major progress arms control, major progress on Berlin negotiation. So these are the motivations and our side, an addition, we felt that we could get some help from the Chinese, ending Vietnam, war, not that they would really squeeze Hanoi, but the least have an interest in seeing this out of the way, there would be more stable Asia. And I think, in many ways, most significantly, they felt I think this was true that if we open. Nd up dramatically with China. And by way, took a courageous decision people think it was inevitable. It was a little easier for Nixon goes his right. Flank was protected by the Republican party metaphor. Nixon goes to China's example are, but Hubert Humphrey would have had more trouble from the Republican, so but it was still a courageous decision had to be paid with the secret trip. The Vietnam war was clearly going to end it an ambiguous fashion going to be victory parades, down Fifth Avenue and the American people were fatigued. We had tremendous domestic two days of riots, assassinations protests and this dramatic opening served to lift them around the American people could put in context that withdrawal from Phnom in the context of opening up with fifth of the world's people. And also it showed the world that the US wasn't bogged down in a quagmire in Vietnam and couldn't exercise diplomat skill. So I think these cosmic impact as well as the specific ones were important now was a win win situation that Chinese wanted to balance again. The polar bear, the Soviets that just had a border clash with them. And they wanted to break out of the 'isolation at into the United Nations and get more normalized relations with countries. So both sides succeeded in goals. If you could just tell us a little bit about how the opening came about. I mean, the stories that are told the Booker fascinating, particularly at one point, the president wants to communicate to the Chinese that he wants to talk and directions or given to I miss the US ambassador to Poland to go up to his counterpart have a conversation in the ambassadors. First reaction to doing that was heck. No, not gonna do it. That's correct. Well Nixon Kissinger had to challenges if they want to open up China into show. Hi, apology was Nixon sent Kissinger memo on February one sixty nine one week after his inauguration saying, get in touch with the Chinese. So we went onto tracks. The ply attract was the find some intermediary country that could be reliable transmitter of messages between us the Chinese, because we, we had no diplomatic relations way to talk to them. And that was a good example. There were these propaganda exchanges in war, so with the Chinese, but no relationship, and therefore ambassador, what after the Chinese and the guy was so scared he blew him off. So we had to find a way to get in touch with the Chinese secretly. We ended up using the Pakistani chattel, but Secondly at the same time, it was important to signal publicly the direction, we were headed, no one thought that was going to be a secret dramatic trip in July seventy-one. But we wanted to indicate both to the Chinese to American audiences and the world that we were looking for a new relationship. So some speech. These were given some terminology was used like the People's Republic of China. We've relaxed some very modest travel and trade restrictions Chinese after respond. But they got the signal. And so we were preparing audiences for the direction of our policy, even as we were trying to get in touch privately, and we manage in nineteen seventy one to pin down the fact that kissing we go secretly to see whether some, it made sense. And if so what the agenda would be okay. So did you go on the ruling going to secret trip?.

"And Russia now is they come back together going against what Kissinger tried to poison. This is part of what they had to say. The Kremlin has aligned Russia with repressive regimes in Cuba, Iran, North Korea Syria, and then as and Moscow is relationship with Beijing is closer than it has been in many decades that of course is Dan Coats, the director national intelligence to share his concern. I do I do think that one of the things that changed things was when there was this. Split between the Russians and the Chinese. I think now for them to try to develop some kind of an alliance, and there are a number of different threats in which both the Russians and Chinese are kind of pushing policies that are contrary to what I think the United States should happen. So I'm very concerned about the fact that the president dismissed what this team of intelligence experts race and kind of said that they didn't know what they were talking about which is ridiculous. These are people that he put into the job. And while I respect the people that preceded this particular group, President Trump is dead really put them down the named his own people. And now he's kind of doing the same thing to them. So I don't know where President Trump thinks that he's getting his information. That was former US secretary of State Madeleine Albright coming up back. Oh, Santan dare chair unavo- team. This is Bloomberg. This data is growing at an unprecedented.

"I max what about the role of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger during Vietnam what we've now got product stolen, these White House tapes, which the last bachelor any release. In fifteen. So it's been mild as I've been one of the first stories able to make good use them. And these White House tapes they providing controversial evidence, and they got Nixon comes into office sixty nine with his national security advisor Kissinger supposed-, the smallest guy that's ever being Washington and all the rest of it these people they knew from the beginning. But the wall was absolutely no chance of winning. But all day were preoccupied like all the other presidents wis to find a way of making it look. Okay. So they could win the seventy two reelection campaign. And the amazing thing on this tapes. Is that Kissinger out supposedly the great academic, intellectual, egghead? He talks more about the seventy two election on the tapes, the Nixon does he's more cynical and want to me one of devastating moments. Is they've been at it for three us kissing just been negotiating secretly with with an all fit means in Paris. Twenty two thousand Americans of died on Nixon's administration and countless more Vietnamese all to find a political way out of this. Well, October seventy two month before the election when Nixon's running against George McGovern, the democratic candidate a Nixon comes rushing Kissinger come rushing into the White House back from Paris. And he said, Mr President he said, I've got a deal better than you could ever imagine. Then he doesn't say this is going to bring peace. It's going to save countless lives. He said, this will absolutely totally screw McGovern and the cynicism of these people. You can say if you want to be generous to Nixon you can say he did what he was paid to do. He did get America out of it now, but any pretends that he got America out with on on some of the conversations again recording on the White House tape when he says things like to one of Nixon's cabinet. He says my dearest wish is. Two Vietnamese nations get each other's throats and kill as many each other as they can't because he was so fed up with negotiating with both of them. It's not pretty I'm chatting with Max Hastings about his new book, Vietnam, he's the author of other groundbreaking books, including all hell, let loose catastrophe and the secret war quick time out here and look at some of these grouping stories you max, the North Vietnamese civilian diet of stewed rat, the US captain who read the US, captain who reads Conrad and Heidi during action patrols the experienced US soldiers who rarely wore underpants because of the humidity is a treasure trove of these anecdotes might what you're you're. You're very kind to say so, but I suddenly realized when I started out writing books about wars. I thought I was writing books about soldiers about which division went which way. But in the course of my career, I'm not only I but a whole generation of historians. I think we've all realized the wall. Doing as much social history as as military history on whenever I'm going through my manuscripts. I Chan cut out as many as I can the divisional names and numbers and all rest of it on the on. I concentrate only human stories because that's what people must fascinated by. And I must fascinated by I still I'm getting old. I may be seventy and I thought when I started out on this book called on Guinea Bill to be traveling around the well doing all these interviews creeping around the middle of night, South Carolina, staying Moto, but actually stories these people tell I mean, I live in England in a middle class bubble..
