China steps up threats to reclaim Taiwan

"China's rise as a great power it showing more and more attention towards reclaiming territory that long regarded as its own witness. Beijing's conduct in the south china sea. The east china sea hong kong the himalayan border with india. And of course. Taiwan fifteen chinese planes were detected flying into taiwan southwest air defense identification zone or on sunday taiwan's ministry of national defense said sunday's incursion involved twelve fighter jets to anti-submarine aircraft and reconnaissance plane. This comes less than twenty four hours. After the people's liberation army air force flew thirteen combat aircraft including chinese bomber planes capable of carrying nuclear weapons into the same region that was from the south korean english language. Every rung account of china's recent intimidation of the lovely liberal democracy of nearly twenty four million people. now one of my guest today has warned the australian defence department. Beijing is highly likely to attempt to take over taiwan using all means short of war as early as twenty. Twenty four ponder that a chinese takeover of taiwan by twenty twenty four. Linda jacobson is the specialist who delivered this assessment to the morrison government. A few months ago linder is founding director and deputy chair of china matters and she joins us from finland. Hello linda welcome back to between the lines. Thank you for having me again. Tom and joining us in sydney. Is natasha qassam. A research fellow at the low institute by the natasha. Thanks for having me tom now. Linda recently published. China matter explores policy brief. Summarize succinctly or faces tom. We've been talking for a long time. That taiwan is possibly explosive issue in our region. I'm saying it again now. Because the president xi jinping has made it clear that contrary to his predecessors he does not think we can leave the unresolved political status of taiwan to future generations. He wants to see movement towards what the chinese say reunification of the mainland and taiwan during his lifetime. That's the first point. The second one is that as of late. Probably because of some of the recent events which you alluded to among others the pfc's actions in hong kong. There's been a lot of talk of war of outright military conflict between taiwan and the pfc. I think these media reports have the problem into the wrong perspective. I think it is unlikely that we will see outright war over taiwan's future but we are very likely to see beijing making a move which is a protractive extensive intensive campaign of pressure using all means short of war to bring the taiwanese political leadership to its knees and agree to negotiate nothing more without preconditions taiwanese leadership has already said they will negotiate. But the pfc wants to negotiate on the basis that there is only one china in other words in negotiations have to end in some sort of agreement about unification so that's in a nutshell is what the policy brief argues. We should appear for this kind of extensive intensive pressure campaign using all means short of a case. i'm not. She heard linda's assessment. There of the chinese threat to taiwan china's military invasion of taiwan's unlikely. Highly unlikely so expect by gene to launch a step by step coercion of taiwan using all main short of war to force taiwan's latest into negotiations to etc unification natasha. What's your response. I'm inclined to agree with linda that this kind of phased coercion with many policy measures that china can easily scale up is the most likely scenario are and we can already see that happening. We can already see china attempting to launch multiple cyber attacks in taiwan to economically co west taiwan to try to put pressure intensive media coverage and even to infiltrate some of those local level groups to try to tan politics in a different way in taiwan. All these measures today have been relatively unsuccessful. China made it very clear that they wa against the current president citing win and that they were going to punish the taiwanese for her. These kinds of measures only encouraged the taiwanese people the vast majority of which do not want to be a part of china to turn out in support and fight to when last year. And at the same time we've also seen the country really come together during this covid nineteen pandemic and we've seen a really incredible of trust in institutions and in that democratic system of government. In a way that perhaps we haven't seen in other countries so i'm inclined to agree with these being the right measures but on the other hand i would say that the military option very much remains on the table not perhaps in the short term but from china's the incredible buildup of the people's liberation army that we've seen over the past decade has very much been directed at a potential taiwan

Tribes and Native advocates praise Joe Biden’s actions to reverse many of the Trump Administration’s environmental policies affecting tribal lands

"This is national native news. Making camera in print tony gonzalez tribal advocates are praising president. Joe biden's quick action to reverse the last administration's environmental policies the mountain west news bureaus savannah mar reports on inauguration day biden took steps to rejoin the paris climate accord. His administration also placed a sixty day moratorium on new leasing and drilling permits on public lands. Biden has also fulfilled campaign promises that were important to tribes including revoking a permit for the keystone xl pipeline. I think there's a sense of indication. Recognition of treaty promises. Matthew campbell is an attorney with the native american rights fund who fought that project on behalf of tribes. In montana and south dakota campbell also represented tribes in the four corners region in their lawsuit opposing the previous administration shrinking of bears ears in grand staircase escalante national monuments. A move biden has pledged to reconsider important first step an important signal that tribal sovereignty will be recognized. The fossil fuel industry is likely to be among biden's biggest detractors. His climate change plan aims to achieve net zero emissions in the us by twenty fifty four national native news. I'm savannah mar reporting for. The story is part of a collaboration between national native news. In the mountain west news bureau native american tribes praised the biden administration this week. For issuing an executive order stopping the keystone excel pipeline but now they're urging additional action to halt other pipeline projects including the dakota access pipeline. The guardian reported the standing rock sioux tribe and the nonprofit earthjustice urged biden in a video to shutdown dapple biden has not made statements on that pipeline but last year when she was a senator vice president kamala harris signed in a mikus brief calling on a judge to shut it down while an environmental impact study was done. Dapple is already transporting half a billion barrels of crude oil daily last week. Seventy five female indigenous leaders sent biden a letter calling for a halt on fossil fuel projects. That threatened the environment. Culture and security of native american lands activist also want the administration to stop construction of line three which would transport canadian tar sands oil across indigenous lands in minnesota in montana this week the state legislature heard three bills that would continue. Efforts launched in two thousand nineteen to address missing and murdered indigenous people. The cut bank pioneer press reports. The bills faced no opposition. One reauthorize task force created in two thousand nineteen and a grant that went to a tribal college to create a database of every missing indigenous person in the state to other bills create a commission to examine cold cases and provide training for search teams and the kansas city star reports. The kansas house of representatives is also considering a bill that would allow the attorney general to coordinate training on murdered and missing indigenous people with tribes. The state bureau of investigation and other law enforcement organizations advocates. Called a good first step. In the philippines eight catholic bishops are calling for an independent investigation into the killings of nine indigenous leaders. The vatican news reports the military claims they were arresting members of the communist new people's army for alleged possession of firearms and explosives and that they resisted but eyewitnesses say. The men were unarmed and offered no resistance. The indigenous leaders were opposing the construction of a dam that would impact indigenous lands. Human rights groups say the government often labels people communists who are fighting for indigenous rights. Also in the philippines indigenous youths may lose a space where they had been sheltering from the military mugabe reports. A group of sixty eight indigenous students and teachers have taken refuge at the university of the philippines and his on city.

In June, the Defense Department released the new defense space strategy, which noted that the military is embarking on the most significant transformation in the history of the US National Security Space Program China and Russia present the greatest strategic threat due to their development testing and deployment of counter space capabilities. The strategy said. Key strategic objectives for the Pentagon include maintaining space superiority, providing space support to national joint and combined operations and ensuring space ability.

A key aspect of the space forces future is how it will acquire new technology. While the Pentagon has been working to speed up acquisitions across its weapon portfolios. space-related equipment poses a particular challenge because technology development in the sector moves. Quickly, a number of acquisition offices have been folded into the space force that includes the space and Missile System Center which acquires and develops military space systems. The organization's portfolio includes space launch global positioning military, space vehicle communications defense meteorology space vehicles range systems, space vehicle control networks, space-based infrared systems, and space situational awareness capabilities. The Space Rapid Capabilities Office has also been integrated the space development agency, which currently resides under the Office of the Undersecretary for Research and engineering is slated to be integrated into the service by October twenty, twenty two. However officials are in disagreement on whether that should be accelerated or delayed. Another key concern for the service is the training and development of the next generation of space warfighters. One official said. Next. Army medical researchers are waging war on the corona virus. The. US Army at war conjures images of infantry tanks and helicopters fighting on far flung battlefields but covid nineteen has opened up a new front at home. With scientists in the trenches battling the pandemic, the army medical community is now racing to develop vaccines, their repudiates and diagnostic tools, but it is also taking aim at other corona. That may emerge in the hopes of staving off a future outbreak. Army scientists are no strangers to combating deadly diseases for decades. They have tackled some of the most challenging by road threats such as Zeka, Ebola, and HIV. Now, they are a key part of operation warp speed and Inter Agency effort with the goal of having hundreds of millions of Kobe nineteen vaccine doses ready by January twenty, twenty, one, development manufacturing, and distribution are the three key elements of getting countermeasures such as a vaccine to the American public, a senior administration official said. Operation Warp speed will tap into expertise at Walter Reed, Army Institute of Research and Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases the scientists aimed to identify, characterize and develop antibodies for use in diagnostic tests for scientific understanding of the virus and as a product to prevent and treat infection in patients. The army and other Defense Department. Components will also provide critical logistical assistance. Several commercial firms have developed vaccine candidates that will enter various stages of clinical trials. This summer and fall army researchers are ready to assist them. They can lend their clinical and statistical expertise infrastructure understanding of community engagement and know how for the entire life cycle of vaccine development. One official said, however, the army is only interested in assisting other vaccine developers. It has also been hard at work in its own designs that could do more than just stop Kobe nineteen. The services leading vaccine candidate was designed to ward off. Corona, viruses that experts fear will emerge in the future one doctor working with the effort said. The army's leading candidate is unique due to its nanoparticle platform that has been engineered to present specific pieces of the corona virus spike protein the part of the virus that attaches to the lungs to the immune system. It will be paired with proprietary advent developed by Walter. Reed Army. Institute of Research scientists known as the army lipscomb formulation to further boost the immune response while other. Kobe. Vaccines might be ready for deployment sooner. The army's version could be more of a silver bullet against a wider range of viral threats. The first human clinical trial is expected to kick off before the end of the summer depending on the data collected, it could advance to a much larger trial towards the end of the year in support of operation warp speed. In case, the leading vaccine candidate doesn't meet expectations to backup. Candidates are also moving to the next level of research. The top prospect, and it's to backups were selected from more than two dozen prototypes based on their elucidation of the most promising antibody response in preclinical studies. Meanwhile. Some health experts say the timeline for operation warp speed is unrealistic given all of the hurdles involved to have a safe effective mass produced vaccine ready by January. US.

"Cutting edge, technology, equipment, training, and more at our events visit the schedule of events page at indy. Dot Org for full details end dia promoting national security since nineteen nineteen in this podcast, national defense takes a deep dive into the Air Force's flying cars initiative, the Navy's robotic ship efforts and special operations commands research in biotechnology. I the Air Force wants flying cars. From the jetsons to blade runner to a multitude of other TV shows and films, popular culture has long been fascinated with the idea of flying cars now the US military is pursuing them, and it wants the public to come along for the ride. The Air Force's agility. Prime initiative is racing to acquire electric vertical takeoff and landing platforms that can carry troops and equipment in ways that offer advantages over today's military aircraft and vehicles. There are multiple ideas and designs about how to do that. According to the Air Force's top acquisition official. Most of the designs include thrust vector control that would enable platforms to take off and land vertically like a helicopter, but fly more like an airplane. The concept may sound familiar to the V twenty two. Tilt Rotor aircraft. That Air Force Special Operations Command and the Marine Corps currently use. But. Officials noted that there are significant differences between the envision vehicles and the rotary wing assets in today's inventory. New Systems would be quieter and smaller, less pricey and easier to pilot. Key attributes of advanced air mobility vehicles would include electric or hybrid propulsion and electric power source, manned remote or autonomous operational capability. Vertical takeoff and landing and commercial off the shelf availability. All would hover on motors, but some may also have wings another official. One potential advantage of the vehicles is that they may be much easier to fly than legacy aircraft, which means more troops would be capable of operating them and require less training. In some cases pilots might not be needed at all. As vendors develop autonomous systems, potential missions for advanced air, mobility vehicles besides troop transport include humanitarian assistance and disaster relief intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and cargo. But the technology won't just be for military use a key aim of the. Prime Program is to promote a new commercial flying car industry to both the economy and give consumers new transportation options. The Defense Department brings a lot to the table. When it comes to assisting commercial companies, officials say, and it could help make the technology more widely available for public use sooner than it would have been otherwise. One officials said a number of companies have reached out to the air force touting their technology based on market research. The air. Force believes multiple vendors will be able to provide solutions. The services aiming to host the first full-scale flight of several different vehicles before the end of the year and have system certified and operational by twenty twenty three. Next the navy and industry are eager to develop bigger robotic ships. As the navy's first medium-sized unmanned surface ship see hundred sales the waters off the California coast. It's next. Iteration is being built in a shipyard thousands of miles away in Mississippi. Construction on the next vehicle known as C. Hundred Two will be completed by the end of the year officials at lead contractor. Lido's say the two robotic ships may be a harbinger of things to come as the navy uses the prototypes to develop tactics, techniques and procedures, and ponders how to integrate them into operations. The Office of Navel Research task leaders to develop see hunter to in two thousand seventeen with a forty three point, five million dollar contract, one official said last year that see hunter one is being used by the navy as a learning tool and has influenced other requests for proposals such as one for the medium unmanned surface vehicle. Naval Sea Systems Command released a request for proposal for a detailed design and fabrication contract for a medium unmanned surface vehicle in the summer of two thousand nineteen. The Pentagon is evaluating responses from industry and expects to award. The U. S. V. Contract this fiscal year. The president's twenty twenty one budget request for the navy also includes funding for a second M USB prototype in two, thousand, eight, twenty three. One issue, the unmanned vehicle will need to overcome is the threat of being boarded and captured by enemy forces. An analyst said. A few ways to solve the problem are having unmanned vehicles operating together with manned surface ships, and by having a cluster of USB's that can detect and respond to efforts to capture US platforms. He said. Another member of industry noted that anti-tampering capabilities including cyber hardening are necessary. If the service is deploying manned vehicle ships around the world. It must ensure it isn't feeding and adversaries fleet. He said. And last Special Operations Command is Gung Ho on biotechnologies. Special Operations Command is listed biotechnology as one of the top technology modernization needs, and is examining how it can improve the performance and health of its commandos. The command is partnering with organizations such as the defense health agency the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and academia to get ahead on biotech research, said us. Oh, calm official during the National Defense Industrial Associations Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, which was held virtually in May due to the COVID nineteen pandemic. Investment in biotech is crucial because operators cannot necessarily count on medical evaluation shortly after being wounded, said the command acquisitions chief. The command is particularly interested in providing new capabilities to combat medics projects in this area include. The use of freeze dried plasma. Taking, advantage of artificial intelligence to enable medics to make a rapid diagnosis and new tourniquet designs. The command is also looking at biotechnology to improve human performance. It wants to develop solutions that can prevent injuries before they occur and rehabilitate operators from existing wounds faster. It is also looking at ways to improve cognitive awareness and enhanced rest to optimize warfighters ability to perform the official noted.

I the Pentagon has accelerated its development of hypersonic missiles. A renewed renewed sense of urgency spurred by rivals Russia and China has pushed the U._S. military to speed up the development of hypersonic weapons. The Army Navy and air force are all closely involved in the campaign with more more test flights coming in twenty twenty. The systems are characterized by their maneuverability and ability to reach speeds of Mach five or faster. The Defense Department asked for two point six billion dollars for hypersonic technology development in President Donald Trump's fiscal year twenty twenty budget request and is nearly doubling its long-term investments from six billion dollars to eleven point two billion dollars over the next five years the Pentagon's research. Region engineering chief said hyper sonics have become increasingly important to technology areas to the Defense Department at large they are now the Pentagon's number one research and development priority. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Z. and the air force are developing to hypersonic vehicle prototypes that are due to fly in the coming months. One is part of the Hypersonic Air Breathing Weapon Concept Program while the other is part of the tactical boost glide initiative. You've the programs are both on track to conduct flights by the end of the calendar year. The director of the agency said the advantage of hypersonic weapons is not just time of flight but also the range that would be achieved by the high-speed speed platforms. He said the agency is also engaged with the army on hypersonic related activities. It is working with the service on a program that takes advantage of technology leverage from the tactical boost glide wide effort the system which is formerly known as operational fires is a fifty fifty cost share and will give the service ground-launched capability to penetrate modern enemy air defenses.

Rifle program now that the army is said upon going forward with its plan to feel the new squad automatic rifle the services committing to proceed as expeditiously as possible to move the project from the testing stage to the field. Exactly how soon soldier should expect to use. Their new squad weapons in combat is still to be determined. The new weapon would fire a six point eight caliber round, which both the service and representatives from industry who were vying for the contract to build it are embracing the round they say would provide the right balance of the theology required in both close and long range fights proponents say it is both lighter and deadlier than the amunition it would replace. But while the army team that is working on the new weapons development is optimistic that they are right on track. They fully understand that more testing will be necessary before the project emerges from its present prototype stage. The cost concerns. Cannot be underestimated in time every soldier marine and special operator who directly engages the enemy would need the new weapon delivered as close to the same time across the spectrum as reasonably possible. Otherwise troops could be forced to fight under circumstances in which units would be carrying different ammunition. Additionally supply chains would have to change to ensure that new weapons and replacement parts are readily available as such the chief of staff of the army said in October that the new weapons would be distributed. First to the one hundred thousand troops who engage in close quarters combat.

So calm has been pursuing the tactical assault light operator suit anticipated to protect special operators against bullets the suit has been compared to that worn by the iron, man superhero. The command plans to have a prototype of the Xhosa gelatin subsystem in twenty nineteen but many challenges remain in developing the system, including the power and software needed to coordinate, the Xhosa Keleti NHS movements. Some of the research for the suit has also led to spin off technologies that can benefit operators. In the meantime, such as curved armor with high ballistic performance so comments also looking to improve its Bill. To communicate securely with the development of two new radios. These include the next generation hand-held system and a next generation multi channel men pack assured communications allow operators to securely make important decisions based on his sight picture of the battlefield Harris corporation has contracts for both radios and plans to begin deliveries this spring, the hand held system will upgrade the commands legacy devices with one channel two two channels while the next generation multichannel man, Pat contract includes a new power amplifier behavior systems and the radios to counter unmanned aerial systems special operations command is pursuing hand-held mobile devices that can detect and defeat small UA S's. The command is currently working with the military services and various agencies to develop prototypes. Unmanned aerial vehicles have been shown to threaten special operators such as in Syria where the Islamic state has reportedly used armed drones with explosive devices against adversaries to counter these types of threats. The command is pursuing both kinetic and non Connectik solutions. It is also continuing with its thunder drone initiative, which is a series of prototyping events geared towards defensive and offensive counter unmanned aerial system solutions. So calm is also working on biotechnology capabilities such as nutritional supplements and wearable technologies to ensure special operators safely work at peak performance it previously worked with halo neuro science on a headset designed to encourage a more effective, workout or recovery period. The company helicase has also developed products that can cure jetlag. However, the command has stressed that it is not trying to create super soldiers. But as working to optimize performance for long durations and enhance operational effectiveness. The command is also working to replenish precision guided munition stockpiles and prepare for future conflicts in the fiscal year, twenty nineteen budget request it included. The biggest procurement package of precision guided munitions that so calm has attempted to acquire in several years as operators must replace the equipment used and conflicts in the Middle East, the Marine Corps special operations. Command is also considering ground launched precision guided weapons, the command may pair a ground launched munition with a small unmanned aerial system and hopes to push precision strike capabilities down to the squad level. To improve its expeditionary intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance abilities. So calm is eyeing commercial off the shelf unmanned aerial vehicles. These systems vary in size in a recent thunder drone, you A V experiment. Many systems were evaluated for potential use the increased interest in smaller commercial off the shelf. Drones is a trend across the military as special operators and -ticipant future. Conflicts in mega cities with populations over ten million people small quad copters would help the operator search buildings and perform duties that cannot be carried out by fixed wing UAV's special operations. Command is also seeking solutions from industry to reduce the signature footprints of commandos some of these efforts include camouflage and signal reduction a twenty eighteen report outlined these goals. Ads and noted that sometimes operators must accept an undesirable level of risk that they will be detected heightening the importance of these technologies. Saab barracuda has been developing multispectral camouflage nets that can provide a secure cover while operators are stopped arresting. Now, the company is also offering a mobile camouflage systems for BA cold. Expeditionary, logistics is also an area of importance for special operations command. The command is pursuing efforts such as three d printing which can help build structures at four word operating locations and using unmanned systems for resupply. So calm is also working to provide access to medical care in austere locations, and is examining the possibility of using portable freeze dried plasma as a way to prevent blood loss on

"Had gone well what do we need to do better and more broadly what do we need from others one of things i was struck in reading the declassified version of the national defense strategy in the introduction align here that says let me quote it we are facing increase global disorder characterized by decline in the long standing rulesbased international order that sentence jumped out at me because the rules based order is something a lot of people in the foreign policy establishment talk a lot about these days and they talk about how endangered it is however it's not something that the president united states talks about indeed donald trump on the campaign trail campaign is a critic of the rule spaced international order many ways arguing that it was a system that allowed the nodded states to be exploited by its friends and allies in so as i look at a document that talks about how we have to build a military that allows us to defend the liberal well rulesbased international order i'm trying to square that with the president who's view of how international politics works seems to be fundamentally different absolutely these do seem to be fundamentally different and if you read the national security strategy that came out of the white house in december so i think your argument absolutely translates to that also you know there are these interesting say do gaps that exist with the president less so with many in his team and it's hard when you have do gaps to figure out who to actually believe right there the arguments some make which is well just look at the actions of the institutions there are others who say no no if the president says it it's actually meaningful so i think of the school if the president says it's meaningful i'm absolutely there what it does come down to though is finding a way to help the american people get in english what do we mean when we say rulesbased international order that's like a fuzzy conception that as you're saying is very much that exists in washington and so how do you help the.

"Concepts you have changes in the civilian landscape with railroads with increased telegraph increased communication telegraphs all of that starts to shift command and control relationships and how you think about conflict more broadly this is really the moment in time in which the us military needs to yes aknowledge all that it is learned from the last sixteen years of war and then try to shape that for what these future conflicts might look like to this point we've been talking about what the document says you've been giving your assessments i'm curious is there anything in the national defense strategy that you think they got wrong i think the notion of keeping the middle east in a box may be a little too aspirated we've seen a number of folks who've tried to do this in the past the middle east isn't ankle biter right vegas rules don't apply to the middle east we've seen that obviously most recently with the refugee crisis in europe and constraining the us time time treasure lost and blood lost in the middle east will require a really vigilant look by the secretary of defense personally and that's the only way that it will happen so i'm not the secretary state i'd like to think secretary of state also i mean i think he would have a role to play right now i think you know look we generally don't have a whole lot of ambassadors in the middle east the us military's a presence about thirty five thousand or so military personnel fourstar commander general tells in and out of the region on an extremely consistent basis so if you're in that region you feel the us military profoundly on a regular basis you don't feel the state department as much unfortunately but obviously if you could strike a deal among interested actors diplomatic deal that might bring more stability i don't not going to say stability but a greater degree of stability than you previously have here reasonably that.

"So for the last seventy or so years the us has been a key power in the international system for a long period of time it was the united states and it was the soviet union and then it has been the united states and we are seeing for all sorts of reasons a re balancing of power which means a bunch of countries including the united states i think as we've seen over the last year gets to step back and say so do we like this system or not how's it actually delivering for us i'd argue there's actually a very selfish case for the united states about why it is delivering so well you know people like to speak about a rulesbased international order i've liked to think about it a little bit like a sports analogy the united states over the last seventy or so years has not only gotten to be the big player in the ball game it also has gone to be the referee and if we look at china's actions in recent years we see what asia might look like if china's the referee where the free and we're we're commerce may be stopped where freedom of navigation may not be permitted where air defense identification zones may be called upon at whim that that is option and it's important that the international community recognizes that it can go down that path but there will be a real cost and i think that's why the united states wants to keep playing such a strong role in asia now it's also worth noting the only way this works is through the unparallel networks of allies and partners that the united states has an and the national defense strategy emphasizes this point but it's really worth kinda doubling down on no other country in the world has a network like this across all sorts of regions you know something happens time and time again country say will what is washington wanna do how does washington wanna think about that that is an unparalleled asset it's obviously a frustrating one i mean churchill wasn't wrong in his comment about allies but that said.

"I'll tell you i think there's a lot of good stuff in this one i mean this is easily the bluntest and pithiest of these strategies that i've ever read you know any document that has to be coordinated by folks from across the pentagon with the white house combatant command services you name it it's inevitable that these documents turn a little bit like a un security council resolution and get a little bit pablum like but this one i think is a really nice job of str staying away from that it short it's tight and it's to the point it's pretty clear what secretary mattis and his team are trying to get done that said the pentagon is a massive enterprise filled with all sorts of folks who have different views some of who might agree with these ideas which will get into a moment i suspect and some of might actually see these ideas as really problematic to the path they want to take so the implementation of any of these strategies requires a very strong and heavy hand by the secretary in his team because let's talk about would it says in the new national defense strategy sort of just sort of give us a primer on what it says america's defense strategy should be so this national defense strategy is extremely focused on two key actors china and russia it affectively says that as we look to the changing future security environment we need to worry increasingly about great power competition it's very clear that we need to worry less about terrorism and about the middle east effectively acknowledging that the us will never leave the middle east terrorism is not going away but we need to shift our priorities i would say this was very much where the obama team pentagon was but in a much quieter way and and not just not really as as advertised as i think you see in this document this is a a very strong and forthright document you see emphasis on things like the us military losing its end that's pretty meaning.

"Of this of course depends on the personalities and you're spot on there is absolutely always an element of parochialism some folks are used to getting certain things they wanna keep getting those things and they would like to get more of those things it differs based on the secretary's personality i would say the strength of the office of the secretary of defense which is the civilian leadership in the department the president views and what they look like but but at a minimum these are generally pretty rigorous effort to try to step back figure out what does the future look like what are the changes in the security environment that we can expect what are the future wars that a president either today or in the future may look to the us military and say hey you need to go fight those and how do you direct the spending this money in a way that makes sense any us military can fight and win those wars this national defense strategy so the first of its kind in it's hardly the first only report that come out of the us government this year there are done hundred probably thousands reports just coming out of the the pentagon it self so one obvious question is is there a history of these documents mattering when we look back at past once did they actually change things such as how we spent money or what we did overseas with the us military these documents have been around for about two and a half decades or so it's a little bit of a misnomer to think as some have that this is the first national defense strategy it used to be known as the quadrennial defense review congress made the smart change to call it the end es the national defense strategy to make it clear that this is the ultimate strategy coming out of the pentagon you wouldn't believe how cacophonous and complicated the strategy guidance landscape is in the pentagon so congress made that change recently they also made a change to make this classified so you can find online if you go to the pentagon's website is actually an unclassified summary of a much larger classified document so all the good stuff got cut out well.

"Welcome to the president's inbox they see if our podcast about the foreign policy challenges facing the united states i'm jim linzie director studies at the council born relations this week's topic is the national defense stretch with me to explore the new national defense strategy as mara carlin mara has worked for five us secretaries of defense advise them on strategic planning defense budgeting future wars in regional affairs most recently she served as deputy assistant secretary defense strategy enforced development she is currently associate professor of the practice of strategic studies at the johns hopkins school of advanced international studies better no brass by its acronym sites and she's also the associate director of sizes your tj studies program she is the author of a book that came out just a couple of months ago building military's in fragile states challenges for the united states mar thank you for joining me today thanks for having me let's you know what sort of a basic question which is what is the virtue of having a national defense strategy why do we produce these documents well the easy answer jim is there produced because congress choirs it congre says the pentagon every four years you have to tell me what your strategy is so i understand how you wanna spend approximately six hundred fifty seven billion dollars or so but that's the official reason actually it's really useful to have a strategy like this because it forces the entire department come together and figure out what are its goals what is it trying to accomplish and what is the smartest way to do that in how genuine is that kind of process because i would imagine many people think when you're talking about that much money six hundred fifty billion plus dollars and you're thinking about having four services that have very definitive us on how they should recede in what's needed not needed that you might not get sort of a back to basics now asus of strategy but more a lot of horse trading maybe some changes round the margins but not a real big rethink so sort of walk us through how that works so a lot.
