"Is going to pop off in the next 6 years. The CNO agreed as did the comment on the Marine Corps. They tend to dismiss that as just kind of the ravings of national security hawks. I think that's misguided. I think particularly after Xi Jinping pockets the massive propaganda victory of hosting the Olympics in Beijing in a few months, I think things could get very, very testy over Taiwan. And I think we need to do a better job of making the case to wisconsinites as to why this matters. I was actually do you believe congressman? I want to interrupt your first day. Do you believe however small the probability that there is a potential for that kind of the surprise attack on America's strategic assets that the CCP would consider short of war? It's the stavridis scenario. That's what 2034 is all about. The limited strike that just sort of cripples America as well. Maybe a carrier, maybe more carriers, maybe all do you think Xi thinks that way? I think the most likely strategy they're pursuing as bridge Colby, I think lays out very well in his book that was just released strategy of denial is a fade accomplished strategy. So essentially they move very good. Exactly. To establish facts on the ground before we can do anything or pursue very creative measures like over a period of a couple months flying in people on civilian airlines into Taiwan kind of a quasi little green man scenario. But in either scenario, I think they will be able to very rapidly move overwhelm our early warning systems and overwhelm Taiwan's indigenous defense systems. I'm not talking Taiwan. I'm talking Pearl Harbor and for my youth, we all grew up thinking that that was possibly I don't remember the Cuban missile crisis, but that second grade, people thought that was always a possibility, however remote that you had to prepare for that little probability. I think the difference between Cold War one and Cold War, that Americans don't think about preemptive strikes anymore. They just don't even believe it. It's possible. And I think there's this quote from the Korean War where general Macarthur is talking to the Senate and he says, it's wrong to believe that war can be applied in a piecemeal way that you can make half war not whole war. I think we tend to think that they'll engage in some sort of half war, but I'm not sure that quite is getting it right. I think you could expect in a confrontation with China that if deters really fails, they'll wage a whole war. Now it may not be a nuclear war, but it will include shutting down exports of critical goods. It will include attacking our critical infrastructure with cyber weapons. It will include spreading disinformation on social media to destroy our will to fight to say nothing about the conventional threats that you outlined to American carriers and ships and things like that. I think there is almost nothing that she wouldn't do to effectuate unification of Taiwan with the mainland. Even if it has oriana mastro and others have written, even if it results in him giving up half or more of the PLA's navy. He's willing to pay a high price. I believe that is correct. I believe that's correct. But I also think he has a goal beyond that, which is the finlandization of the world. The way that he's Finland I Hollywood the way that he's Finland is Silicon Valley. He's a genius, by the way. I'm not, I'm not taking anything away from chairman G but do you with the advent of a recognition that there's a second Cold War? Does the American media understand last question to you? Understand G I think this is the whole key. One guy can do this. No, and I fear throughout the pandemic, the legacy media in America has been acting as useful idiots for the Chinese Communist Party. I mean, you have people checked out and others pricing early on in the pandemic the way the Chinese handled their pandemic risk. Chuck is now a realist. I talked to he's now a realist. I think all of big media is a realist. I don't know if our audiences, though, are aware of what that means. Yeah, and again, I think people in public office need to do a better job myself included of connecting what can seem like abstract concerns about Taiwan or Xinjiang province autonomous region in Xinjiang to everyday life of wisconsinites and even Ohio wins going forward. And why this is something we all need to be worried about. And why you should be offended when a hostile foreign power is able to coerce major American industries, whether it's the NBA or Hollywood, right? That should offend every single American. We need to mobilize in a bipartisan fashion Americans to start taking charge of the situation and invest resources in our defense before it's too late. Very quick last cheek question. Senator cotton brought to my attention when I did not know that every major news organization in the United States has a complicated relationship like Hollywood's with the Chinese Communist Party. Do you agree with that? I do. Wow. See, I just think even hawks like me are aware of the wake up call that came with a hypersonic and I hope a lot of good luck to you, but go get some money from your Friends. Because the Democrats are going to spend 2 trillion not a penny for defense, but trillions for Green New Deal at that make anything.

"Morning. Hugh happy birthday your wonderful life. My daughter who was born almost a year ago around the time just woke up so she's also wishing happy birthday to your wife. Oh my goodness he's got a one year old in the house. Are you holding her My wife is holding a right now. will soon be making weird noises in the background. Alert your interview. It's the very best sort of background noise or kids. Screaming dogs barking. And i love it. congressman will. You help meet. My wife has a request for her birthday. She'd like to know why the packers didn't go for it on fourth down. She really is interested in this and she's not much of a football fan so i said i'd ask us all right. Let's get going every time. I try me night. Let's get going. Look if the chinese communist party. This is the question of the hour. I've decided it's the question very would be presidential candidate for everyone who comes on Everyone who wants to run for the senate. If the chinese communist party attempts to take over taiwan by whether it is explicit or via espionage by the introduction of little green men of their own variety. What should the united states do you come to the defense of taiwan and prior to that we should start preparing the american people for why this matters. We made some progress in last year's nba. We took my taiwan defense sac which focused on ensuring the pentagon maintains the capabilities and needs to defeat a so called state accompli against taiwan And that was a good step for getting that path but we need to go a step forward and passed by the bill to taiwan invasion prevention act. Which would officially end this policy of strategic ambiguity and establish a standing authorization for the use of military force to defend taiwan. We simply need to jettison the complacency we have with balancing taiwan and china and come down firmly on the side of taiwan in order to deter innovation. That certainly seems more likely today. And even a few years ago admiral davidson out there saying they could make. I want the next six years. And i fear that. Many as america's elites particularly those in the financial community who continue to make majority of games off growth in asia in general china particular are in the risk of a taiwan scenario to the they see it as a risk the distant tail risk so end the policy of strategic ambiguity. Continue selling our our friends and taiwan the resources they need in order to deter an invasion and start to talk to the american people about why this matters. Now there are thousands of americans who live in taiwan thousands of americans who live there. I know a couple of them that should not be however the reason that we would act with force to meet force but because they are a democratic ally and we have always strategic ambiguity has just been a nice way around saying we would defend the island nation with force. Now my question though congressman. Do you mentioned the big. If if the american people are prepared to do so do you think they are for a shooting war for a hot or for anything. That involves american casualties well. I think there's certainly a a sentiment within the country that tragically and somewhat ironically shared on on both sides that just wants to turn inward focus on so-called nation-building at home to revive a obama phrase that used to infuriate me But i think that makes it all the more comment upon people in public office To make the case for why we have to be forward engage why taiwan is to the new cold war. What berlin was to the old. And that's why matters i just would add. Certainly democracies important defending democratic allies and partners that affects our own credibility as well the geography of taiwan where it sits within the first island chain makes it important. But there's a couple of other things that i think people fail to recognize. Sometimes one is that you allow this to happen. It could create a nuclear cascade and rise. The the risk of a regional war given the roles japan and india my place well and then the other that affects every american Who drives is the fact that taiwan is critical for semiconductor manufacturing the world's largest semiconductor manufacturer. Tsmc is located in taiwan. And without taiwan or things turn off and they start falling down from the sky and we give general secretary xi jinping a tool with which you can hold the entire world hostage so again i despite the fact that international engagement and for defense and supporting allies may no longer being vogue. That just means our task is more important to start making these arguments Because i fear the complete collapse of american deterrent. If we allow this to happen and as far fetched as it may seem if you're xi jinping and you're sitting there looking at american you feel like wow they're politically. You're very divided against themselves to the russian seem to have gotten away with invading country and the biden administration. Just give him a gift with nordstrom to now might be a good time in order to press the limit pursue. These games is the hundredth anniversary of the founding china's communist party. What better way to celebrate it then. This incredible legacy achievement. And i do believe this is. She's legacy This is what he views as critical to his legacy now. Crimea is bigger than taiwan. I want people to understand that. That nation state can fall rather quickly even an independent island nation. Like taiwan can be overwhelmed unless they have the superpower ally. What would our forest look like. If they began to assemble a battle for us we would obviously know was coming if they are doing the invasion route. Not the little green men right but if they were doing we would know what coming. What sort of steps would you imagine. We would take before and during such an attack. Well i would imagine the carrier. That house paint adverted away From the pacific in order to help with you have ghanistan withdraw with know. Turn around and had the other way all the more reason why they're early details something biden defense budget so troubling in particular. Because they're going to hurt hurt. The navy reduced number of ships. We have and and yet again. It's like lucy and charlie brown with football comes to rebuild the navy Then i think we'd be looking at what other You know naval assets. We'd have in the region as we've talked about many times hugh One of the most important steps we took in the last four years was getting out of the intermediate range. Nuclear forces treaty was theoretically allows the field intermediate range ground launch missiles With st five hundred fifty five hundred article miles but yet we haven't made much progress on that impart because we need basing agreements with our allies. And so i'm just afraid right now we do not have the deterrent posture. We need in order to deny even a highly conventional invasion by the pla navy. Right now. I think hey. Hybrid strategy is more likely. Some sort of You know little green man scenario combined with conventional assets. But in either case. I just worry that. We don't have the force posture in the pacific and in the first hour that we need in order to prevent this from happening now the p. l. a. We'll try and drop try and land trips from the air. Taiwan will shoot at those airplanes and those paratroopers if they attempt to land either at existing airstrips or via. And they're they're violating taiwan airspace. Every day will we shoot at those planes and what virginia class submarines seven torpedoes or other underwater devices at chinese people's liberation army. Navy ships headed for taiwan. Well if they fire the first shot..

And at times when it's conroy liverpool. Yep he's lights at absolute love and the quality still there. I think it's on plop now to find out what is going midfield. Nabi keta is probably going to be off. I would say experiment yeah. We wouldn't be surprised to see him. Go to blah blah awesome for and just all of a sudden Not the case back.

Can you do that with the Just picking a name around the because we've already talked to say you had tiago and to that you awesome really good.

"I'm John about this is the John Batch to show I continue with my friend Gordon Chang at Gordon Chang and were joined by our colleague James Holmes. J. C, wily chair of maritime strategy at the Naval War College James, Professor of Very Good evening to you, you have published in the National Interest. Most interesting piece compelling piece. About the ambitions of the PL, a Navy the Communist Party, especially in this time of turmoil with regard to the PR CES political conduct in Hong Kong and East Turkistan, Xinjiang along the Himalayan frontier. Then the statement again and again over this last decade of indisputable sovereignty at the nine dash line, James what is the nine dash line and didn't the U. S just repudiate the whole idea of establishing sovereignty in international waters. Good evening to you, James. Hey, John. Hi, Gordon. Yes, Yes. So last week, Secretary Pompeo came out with the intimate that statement on the U. S position and start trying to see are rejecting that ended though he is a passionate inspiration in there, and we will not let China ex exercise its own maritime empire. Within the nine dash line, which is which is to go back to your first question is a dotted line and closing about who you asked about at least 80 and possibly as much as 90% of the South China Sea, including exclusive economic zone was offshore waters of portion too. Coastal cities like the Butt, Vietnam, the Philippines and so forth by international law. China is trying to trying to define that as something much more than an empire. I think it's trying T take charge of it, and we would, as it were land. So it sort of what sovereignty means. I mean their position is indisputable Sovereignty within the nine dash line over the islands of the water, visitation violence. Sovereignty means nothing else in that. I actually have a monopoly on force looking down with these borders, and I didn't know the laws in the regulations and determine what goes on that sub I think it's something much more than that. And it's been an empire. So yeah. Do what going on them who reports Gordon. So, China talks about blue national soil, and that would seem to indicate that they're claiming sovereignty. Not only over the land features there the islands the reach the shows. But also the water itself. But on official maps, it's still a dash line, not a solid line, although, of course, they have been dropping hints that would meet lead you to believe that they really do see the South China Sea is enclosed by a solid line demarcating boundaries. Where do you think this is going to go in terms of a full claim to sovereignty of everything? Well, I think I think the ultimate goal is what you just said. I think that what I just did as well. I think they think you took us to starve on territory and therefore they will make the rules and the laws that govern there and others will obey. It's just simply the islands were part of it. The waters of the orders in this part of it is well, if you look at so many of the encounters that have happened between our date another co stars and China's forces, All of those were not are happening in the open seas, not not within 12 nautical miles. The territorial of any Land feature and therefore that's just they're They're definitely trying to, uh, trying to rule South China Sea as though it were territorial waters waters under Chinese sovereignty, such as rivers and offshore waters immediately from waters. James. Many years ago, you established that the Chinese PLA Navy was making routine conversation and study of one of your predecessors at the Naval War College. Alfred there, man the idea that Navy's exist to advance national interests and also to enforce maritime and security zones. And then, of course, there is the big battle. A swell is this demonstration of diplomatic arrogance. Is this an extension of the Chinese doing all that studying? Do they think that By planting themselves at an unsinkable carrier. They've won a battle. Yeah, that's a That's a good question and one that I have been studying with my friend. That's what show Zohar since about the top of 2003 times for a minute. But finally, we actually had a quite a quite a struggle of big argument with the established China hands back in those days about whether China without you look at this 19th century Imperialists and actually model its military strategy on the hand. And I think it is and I think it's pretty clear that they have and it's his name comes up a lot of the delegation when we don't see the feline AIDS in Newport to much anymore, but they used to come to town are fairly fairly regularly and they would always start off by pointing out the portrait of the hand and into my hand with tons of what we need and say This guy is very important to us even studying our entire careers. So that's it. It's a pretty strong testament, and there's actually a little bit of a reason for hope. They started out for taking a very bloody mind to do about my hands writing. Let's talk about everything in any slacks by the waters. More or less prom or less permanently. So it was all about battle. Now it was. Usually they done their homework on the hand. They read his vast quarters of works by a lot of which is not so 40 minded so I'm not sure that I hold out hope, but at least I think there's always a little stupid. They were what they call that less of battle lines that stuff on board, hopefully, hopefully will mellow out over the years, but it doesn't really Doesn't really look like it right now. But we shall see that gives us a standard took chances of progress by Yeah, but the South China Sea those those militarized islands, those fortified islands that is their interpretation of how to dominate the region..

this story well it seems odd to effectively crowdsource your decision relating to sentencing and quite honestly you I don't know what the precedent for that is and it's just a nother element of an increasingly bizarre story as it relates the general flan and one that I think should trouble everybody regardless of their party affiliation I should admit my bias I I work for general plan in the reserves I was actually with him and and rip in Wisconsin the week before all this started in late November I always knew him to be a dedicated public servant but this broader story we're we have a minimum of fifty unmasking from thirty nine different officials between the end of November in mid December James at the very least to be a clear abuse of power especially since that list includes vice president Biden and then some of the questions request came before Wednesday's meeting with Kislyak which aroused a lot of suspicion so we now have evidence of an abuse of power and of course we know that this led to the commission of a felony the leak of those transcripts of those calls was a felony the leak to The Washington Post and so I think we should all regardless of our partisan affiliation hope that during gets to the bottom of that felony and holds the felon accountable especially I I want to cover it a couple of things first of all I don't have you seen the New York post's front page today it's one of the more brutal ones I've ever seen Biden unmasked pop head what did Joe know and when did he forget it bottom had despite denials beat New of Flynn witch hunt this is going to be the popular understanding of Biden's role in this but far more important is the fact that thirty nine different people requested the unmasking of Michael Flynn now you're a former marine intelligence officer your salary but you used to be in the Intel business I now see that the anti trump media coming up with this line I quote Julia pace I don't see that I trust but I see this everywhere in the anti trump media fun fact about unmasking it's very common how common you ask there were nine thousand five hundred twenty nine unmasking requests in twenty seventeen sixteen thousand seven twenty one and twenty eighteen and ten thousand twelve last year that's actually irrelevant Mike Gallagher what is relevant is how many were there between the election of two thousand and eight and the inauguration of Barack Obama that's the data set that is relevant well that's precisely right because what we have here at stake is the peaceful transfer of power which is as close to any you say great as is any process in our Republic and the timing is incredibly suspicious I also wonder if that broader universe of unmasking does include people as high up as the vice president or involve discussions that we know were had in the oval office with the president himself so I don't think it's fair to include this particular case we have an incoming national security adviser for the elected incoming administration announced by thirty nine officials at the highest levels of our government the bottom line make you is it unmasking is just a routine thing that we do then why do we have such important rules or taboos against it if it's just a routine thing that happens every single day in the intelligence community so I don't agree with the premise of that counter argument and again I would agree with your assertion that this is just a fundamentally different category in type of case it's so obvious to me what's going on here they're kicking up dirt they're trying to avoid the implication which is it isn't it yeah but I call Obama gate the people say what does that mean to me it means the intentional interference with the peaceful transfer of power cooperative and seamless as it has been since eighteen sixty one when we had unfortunately a civil war it's never happened we've never had this Mike Gallagher and rule of law conservatives and liberals should all be aghast at what went on here what an F. B. I. has said critics are wrong here that it was a meeting in late December that Flynn had our conversation had that sparked a lot of their investigation interest but we now know that the requests for unmasking happened nearly a month earlier so if anyone has a legitimate defense for why they requested the unmasking now would be the time for them to tell dumb because the timing does not seem to add up I do have some confidence though based on what I know about their own but you will get to the bottom of this I think it's gonna be very hard to determine who exactly was the leaker just given the fact that there were thirty nine people involved in that may indeed be the intent here and this would be to hide the origin of it with so many people involved but I do have confidence in terms of bility to get to the bottom of this sure if you want to hide the fact that you're leaking classified information what you want to do is trigger all hold dozens of requests for the the information that you're about the leak so that you cannot trace the leak right that's what you did this is what this is it's a dot thirty nine body doubles of Saddam Hussein running around Iraq so we can't figure out who he is or where he is it's just if it's so obvious what was done here what do you make of Susan rice memo to the file on the day of the inauguration nothing to see here not to worry everything we were told to do everything by the book what is that smell like it sounds like it admission of guilt against insurance it's just such a bizarre documentary Emmy Y. righted in less you were nervous about covering your tracks I do think I I see it and again I I don't have evidence for this so I mean yeah probably at like there but I I view this as part of a broader smoke screen that you're talking about and a way of covering the fact that they were messing with the peaceful transfer of power and so I want to get to my other key question do you have any indication from within the house of representatives Adam Schiff is at all embarrassed by what has come out which is obvious in its implication for his veracity witcher's it doesn't exist no I don't because the man is quite simply put shameless I I don't think he's cowed in any sense by the evidence that he was making a lot of the shop that he was abusing his position as chairman of the house intelligence committee remember that something very historic all the Republicans on the committee called for his resignation on the committee that used to be the most bipartisan committee in Congress and sell but I despite that I don't have any sense that he feels at one iota of contrition and that's unfortunate because it resulted in the politicization of the intelligence committee and the break down and a very productive oversight relationship really a breakdown in trust not only between the branches but between the American people and Congress yeah it's it's it's a very low point I didn't think any news could break through the pandemic but this has because it's such a potent scandal all right now that federal celebrated in general debt till I wanna ask you congressman Gallagher you're on services should we be selling F. thirty five to Taiwan well the trump administration deserves credit for selling sixty six F. sixteen to Taiwan the concern is that the technology on the F. thirty five Bravo is in this case is just too sensitive and there's too much leakage potentially to the mainland interim step we could consider it selling F. eighteens which unlike the F. sixteen you can talk to the navy and the marine corps assets which would be Taiwan's most logical partner the holy grail in my my would actually be to figure out a way to host I. N. F. noncompliant missile systems and I in Taiwan which allow us to target the PLA's navy on the cheap far cheaper than we did we would do it with that aircraft so that's something we could explore and expand on that for the for the bucs fans in the Steelers fans out there what you just said but I can't the bus standard or super into arms control so they understand but that we are no longer bound by the I. N. F. treaty which prohibited the use of ground launched intermediate range missiles with a range between five hundred to fifty five hundred commoners so we can basically put missile systems in India Paycom that allow us to do to the P. L. A. maybe what they're doing to our navy which is target them very cheaply this is a critical component of the marine corps commandant strategy for modernizing the marine corps and the most difficult aspect of it is going to be convincing our allies in the region whether it's Japan or Taiwan or Australia to host some of these missile systems because the Chinese Communist Party will not like that but that is evidence that we're on to something I just looked at a broader level if you are not bad for the National Review three days ago talking about the need to stand with Taiwan this is a critical moment for doing that because its very existence is a repudiation of the Chinese Communist Party we have an incredible ally in Taiwan I think we need to clarify our policy of strategic ambiguity we need to support Taiwan's observer status in the world health organization as well as other international organization and I think there's an opportunity here for secretary cocktail and others to visit Taipei the given address that you know something like that a Merican and student Taiwan just talking about Taiwan's exceptional response you're going out of Iraq in contrast to the lives of the Chinese Communist Party well foreign minister will is a great gal she should be everywhere it's a question for next week whether or not provocative actions at the low point of American Chinese relations are at the high point are more provocative I think they're right now necessary but we won't will continue I do have to point out you did it again congressman you said the end of Paycom theater and and we got pirates fans out there like Carl whose water what stadium is that who got that who got the naming rights friend of pay com I it's just it's one of those things that you've just got to stop you cannot talk that way to make my Pittsburgh audience well everything outside of Wisconsin is strategic depth okay good to Dodge the dog or the dog go don't go anywhere America I'm coming right back with that Jim talent again asking the same question about Taiwan but I want to remind you really factor that come I should have told.

Gallagher who is from Wisconsin maybe he knows something about the birth did you see the story that they're thinking about a nine team division because nobody wants to play the brewers congressman well I do not see the story but I assume no one wants to play the berserkers were to get let us also not forget the scandal brewing where this is all an attempt to deny the Milwaukee Bucks a championship that they were on a clear path to winning this season in the NBA so a lot of scandals brewing Hugh as you well know a lot of people have already put the NBA to bad and and nobody's moaning it being god they're worried about baseball getting started but I just worried nobody wants to play the birds it's that congressman I got to ask a couple of important questions first of all you're not a lawyer nor did you stay at a Holiday Inn but I have been talking about the fact that I am outraged by what judge Solomon is done is attack on the rule of law it is a genuine disservice to

don't think it's fair to include this particular case we have an incoming national security adviser for the elected incoming administration on matched by thirty nine officials at the highest levels of our government the bottom for a make you is it unmasking is just a routine thing that we do then why do we have such important rules or taboos against it if it's just a routine thing that happens every single day in the intelligence community so I don't agree with the premise of that counter argument and again I would agree with your assertion that this is just a fundamentally different

war it's never happened we've never had this Mike Gallagher and rule of law conservatives and liberals should all be aghast at what went on here well and the FBI has said cooking for wrong here that it was a meeting in late December that Flynn had our conversation had that sparked a lot of their investigation interest but we now know that the requests for unmasking happened nearly a month earlier so if anyone has a legitimate defense for why they requested the unmasking now would be the time for them to tell Durham because the timing does not seem to add up I do have some confidence though based on what I know about there and that he will get to the bottom of this I think it's gonna be very hard to determine who exactly was the leaker just given the fact that there were thirty nine people involved in that may indeed be the intent here and that it would be to hide the origin of it with so many people involved but I do have confidence in terms of bility to get to the bottom of this sure if you want to hide the fact that you're leaking classified information what you want to do is trigger all hold dozens of requests for the the information that you're about the leaks of it you cannot trace the leak right that's what you did this is what this says it's safe got thirty nine body doubles of Saddam Hussein running around Iraq so we can't figure out who he is or where he is it's just if it's so obvious what was done here what do you make of Susan rice memo to the file on the day of the inauguration nothing to see here not to worry everything we were told to do everything by the book what is that smell like it sounds like it is a mission of guilt against insurance it's just such a bizarre documentary Emmy Y. righted and less you were nervous about covering your tracks I do think I I see it and again I I don't have evidence for that so I mean yeah probably at like there but I I view this as part of a broader smoke screen that you're talking about and a way of covering the fact that they were messing with the peaceful transfer of power and so I want to get to my other key question do you have any indication from within the house of representatives Adam Schiff is at all embarrassed by what has come out which is obvious and its implication for his veracity which is it doesn't exist no I don't because the man is quite simply put shameless I I don't think he's cowed in any sense by the evidence that he was making a lot of the shop that he was abusing his position as chairman of the house intelligence committee remember that something very historic all the Republicans on the committee called for his resignation on a committee that used to be the most bipartisan committee in Congress and sell but I despite that I don't have any sense that he feels at one iota of contrition and that's unfortunate because it resulted in the politicization of the intelligence committee and the break down and a very productive oversight relationship really a breakdown in trust not only between the branches between the American people and Congress yeah it's it's it's a very low point I didn't think any news could break through the pandemic but this has because it's such a potent scandal all right now that federal separated in general debt till I wanna ask you congressman Gallagher you're on armed services should we be selling up thirty five to Taiwan well the trump administration deserves credit for selling sixty six F. sixteen to Taiwan the concern is that the technology on the F. thirty five Bravo is in this case is just too sensitive

"Congressman Mike Gallagher from the great state of Wisconsin, ordinarily, I would bring up the fact that they're allegedly protein in Wisconsin. The NBA collapsed. But in honor of the goat Bart star. I'm not gonna do that. Mike gallagher. I appreciate that. The wound is still fresh nothing makes sense anymore. Duan's married. The universe is completely disordered. I can't make sense. But a quick out. Bart Starr, obviously, we know everything achieved on the field in the Lombardi era. I recommend everyone David marinas book, when pride still mattered. But what he did in my district northeast -sconsin just as a citizen as a philanthropist is incredible. He started something called the rawhide boys ranch, which continues to save lives of young troubled men in northeast. And, and his legacy is all around us. So very sad for the community, but he will be remembered, I, there was a question posed on Twitter yesterday about what famous person have you met who turned out to be far better than your expectation for me. It was Brian site turned out to be absolutely the most wonderful guy. Christian guy working with kids, all the time in San Diego. Just wonderful humble guy, and it sounds like Bart. Starr was the same way. Completely. That's why I wear about Scott jersey every Packers game. So advantage stars. I think he just embodies the east coast northeast discounts gone, just humble hard, working guy and just an incredible story. We got work to do though. Boy, do we have a lot of issues. First of all, I wanted to fend the crew on the watts yesterday that were wearing Maga patches. They're enlisted men that go out and helicopters for search and rescue missions. They're in harm's way all the time and they like the president. So they put a Maga patch on their. What's your advice to the navy, because some people got their heads all torqued, I wouldn't have minded if they wore President Obama patches. Well as our mutual friend captain, Jerry Hendriks knows it's impossible to instill uniform discipline in the navy, obviously would fly in the Marine Corps, but I'll get the navy some slack. Listen, I serious note. I think I, I don't think this was a political statement, other than a bunch of young, enlisted sailors, wanted to attract the attention of their commander and chief possibly get a picture with him. So I think the media's attempt to make a huge deal out of this is very misplaced. All right. Number two. The president made some unusual comments on aircraft carriers. I, I know enough about aircraft carriers to get into trouble. And I know one of procurement to get into real trouble, but you can't change carriers in midstream. I mean, it would it would destroy the idea of three hundred fifty five navy to say after these two Ford class. We're going back to the Nimitz doesn't even make any sense. The train is indeed leaving station now on the one hand, I'm glad. President Trump is taking such detailed interest in navy ships because we need a lot more of them, and it's gonna require the president's consistent involvement and making the case to the American people if we ever want to get to three to fifty five but the propulsion system emails that you're going to is really one of the centerpieces of the new four class carriers. If reduces stress on the carrier based aircraft in by exceleron aircraft launching on more gradually, and that lengthens the service life of the ship now with any new technology, Hugh, especially when is complex this, you're gonna see bugs you're gonna have king so you have to work out, but it doesn't mean you go back into the baby out with the bath water because that would cost billions of dollars. But I think the president is really getting at this bigger question is the juice worth the squeeze when it comes to aircraft carriers. I mean, the fact is your average cost of an image class the previous class across the ten ships. We built was about five point five billion before classes classes. Be no less than twelve billion. We're probably never gonna get below that. So the question I think, president asking is broader question, does the increased costs increasing complexity is justified, and I think that's where he's coming from stare question. And I think the navy needs to a better job defending the role of the carriers to carrier strike group in the twenty first century. But when we talk about the carrier what we really need to be talking about is to carrier air wing and the air wings inability to reach its target in a modern eight two eighty environment. We need to make big investments in increasing the range in LaSalle the air wing, particularly with unmanned systems, and we don't do that then indeed people can rightly question why we're investing in carrier. Mike. I've been listening to, to rule the waves Arthur Herman's excellent history, British navy. And in World War, Two both Britain and the United States turn too far less expensive, but rapidly built half flat tops and pocket battleships. They went small but they went for a lot. Is that part of this discussion, I think that has to be where the navy priorities. It doesn't that doesn't mean you sort of get rid of your foundation of, of carriers and destroyers and things like that. But if we want to rapidly get to three fifty five we have to be leveraging things like autonomous ships in order to get there. And I think a good friend of mine. Chris broS has done a good job of laying that case out in a recent formed fares, article the need for a lot of inexpensive ships and earn his exquisite which really complicates the targeting picture for China, for example, creates dilemmas in enemies mine. Now, the native credit for prioritizing on Thomas system in their budget requests that has to be an increase piece of the puzzle here is we figure this thing out last credit or yesterday or the day before Lockheed said, Canas out of the competition, would you I help people with the? F. F. F. F G. X is the SS is the future frigates. What we call a small surface combatant. So think something smaller than a destroyer, but still a big shift that has weapons on it. They can go places in harbours tickling into Pacific region that big ships like destroyers. Can't go right now. That is the littoral combat ship. We are moving away from littoral combat ship, and moving towards the frigate, which is a little bit more heft to it. Hopefully can carry some more lethal weapon systems on it. Now, in my shipyard, we are going to compete, what's called the friend, which is really the centerpiece of what thinking Terry, which is the world's best shipbuilder thinking, Terry, Meriden marine builds, and we're very excited about competing that ship were excited about a new arrangement where the shipbuilder will actually be what's called the prime previously, Lockheed was the prime and the shipbuilder was subordinate to Lockheed. So I think this will ultimately result in a better ship. A more cost efficient ship for the navy. And I think walkie jumping out recognizes the reality that the navy wants to move away from the LCS czar before I come back to the time line. I also want to reference again to rule the ways by Arthur Herman turns out in World, War One and subsequently in World War. Two a lot of small ships, sub chasers and PT boats and destroyers are what saved England because they were able to convoy duty and defeat the wolf packs, we need a lot of f f X's, and we gotta get started. When does the navy intend to pick pick one and get going? The awards gonna come, I believe, in July twenty twenty if I'm getting that correctly, that, that was the navy plans to announce the outcomes checks competition. The designs are underway. It's gonna be very robust competition. But as soon as we get that awarded we get the building and just to make another point on the need for smaller ships. Well, they make to two point two so smaller ship than even FX. Yes. Would for example, be a Mark six patrol boat that you could deploy from the well, well deck of activity ship, a very small, but you can imagine a future environment putting something like a long range, missile and L L Razan on a Mark six patrol vote. And all of a sudden he's taking very small ship and made it a very lethal weapon that's gonna create a lot of dilemmas for the PLA navy or the PLA rocket force, and that sort of creative thinking, we need to have in the navy right now as we think about how do we really increase our presence in the priority? Thea. The Indo Pacific theater, what we would call the Eurasian, Ringling and the second one on Accu more smaller ships, also create more command opportunities for younger navy. Officers, no true openly, which is openly. How we win relatives to China, right? China's weakness is that it's a very hierarchical system, very top down system in some ways we need to embrace. What is great about America, and that's our innovative spirit? And that not only applies to the private sector. It applies to our military, right? We operate under what's called commander's intent. We are at our best. And we've devolved power and authority down to the lowest possible level. And that's how we succeed over our enemies in a very chaotic environment, where for example, you could use cyber weapons to negate your technological advantages, we need to embrace that and be able to out compete our adversaries in that Gatica par last question congressman Gallagher, it seems to me that if we advance the timetable for the decision it would not only get the ships faster, it would be. A real world test, Ron of how quickly we can get the defense, industrial base to operate, I'm reading this World War, Two history and boy, do we turn on a dime and, and issues came from orders came from Washington shipbuilders changed, and they made up their mix. If we said, we're picking in nineteen and we're producing twenty it would be a great stress test of our ability to deliver. So I agree. Let's pick northeast. Wisconsin today, hairnet should win win the competition right now and we'll get to build ships and they'll be the best ships in the fleet. But what about my God? If it's not from if it's anybody anything we haven't we haven't made a quick decision in any of the armed services on a platform, as long as I can remember, we've never acted quickly. Well, I think it's risk aversion some of it's warranted. Right. I think if you look back in the lessons learned of the littoral combat ship. There was a lot of changes in design along the way that increase the cost we never really settled on six design, and there was a lot of increasing complexity and a lot of uncertainty. And so I think the navy wants to avoid that. But you're right that we need to balance that with the sense of urgency of getting the ships in the water and the whole point of having more small surface combatants, a greater number of smaller ships is that these things aren't the most exquisite. Vessels in the fleet. Right. They, you know, they, they may be more vulnerable than some other designs. But they're in what is called the contact layer as you look at the Pentagon's global operating model. Do want them visible every single day to the enemy want them out there. We want them to have presence. We want them to being gauged in the business of deterrence by denial, telling the enemy every single day that they will not be able to t- their jackets, whether it seizing Taiwan rapidly or militarizing, the south, and East China Sea things like that. And that is the promise of the future. Frigate Representative Gallagher. Thank you. Follow him on Twitter at rep Gallagher.

So they put a Maga patch on their. What's your advice to the navy, because some people got their heads all torqued? I wouldn't have minded if they wore President Obama patches. Well as our mutual friend captain, Jerry Hendriks knows it's impossible to instill uniform discipline in the navy, obviously would fly in the Marine Corps, but I'll give the navy some slack serious note. I think I, I don't think this was a political statement, other than a bunch of young in listed sailors, wanted to attract the attention of their commander and chief possibly get a picture with him. So I think the media's attempt to make a huge deal out of this is very misplaced. All right. Number two. The president made some unusual comments on aircraft carriers. I, I know enough about aircraft carriers to get into trouble. And I know enough of procurement to get into real trouble, but you can't change carriers in midstream. I mean, it would it would destroy the idea of three hundred fifty five navy to say after these two Ford class. We're going back to the Nimitz doesn't even make any sense. The train is indeed leaving station now on the one hand, I'm glad. President Trump is taking such detailed interest in navy ships because we need a lot more of them, and it's gonna require the president's consistent involvement and making the case to the American people if we ever want to get to three to fifty five but the propulsion system emails that you're going to is really one of the centerpieces of the new four class carriers. If do stress on the carrier based aircraft and by exceleron aircraft launching on more gradually, and that lengthens the service life of the ship now with any new technology, Hugh, especially when is complex this, you're gonna see bugs you're gonna have king so you have to work out, but it doesn't mean you go back and through the day the out with the bath water because that would cost billions of dollars. But I think the president is really getting at this bigger question is the juice worth the squeeze when it comes to aircraft carriers. I mean, the fact is your average cost of an image class the previous class across the ten ships. We built was about five point five billion before classes classes. Be no less than twelve billion. We're probably never gonna get below that. So the question I think presence asking is broader question, does the increased costs increasing complexity is justified, and I think that's where he's coming from stare question. And I think the navy needs to do a better job defending the role of the carriers carrier strike group in the twenty first century. But when we talk about the carrier what we really need to be talking about is to carrier air wing and the air wings inability to reach its target in a modern eight two eighty environment. We need to make big investments in increasing the range in LaSalle the air wing, particularly with unmanned systems, and we don't do that then indeed people can rightly question why we're investing in Kerry, Mike. I've been listening to, to rule the waves Arthur Herman's excellent history, British navy. And in World War, Two both Britain and the United States turn too far less expensive, but rapidly built half Platt tops and pocket battleships. They went small but they went for a lot. Is that part of this discussion, I think that has to be where the navy priority. That doesn't mean you sort of get rid of your foundation of, of carriers and destroyers and things like that. But if we want to rapidly get to three fifty five we have to be leveraging things like autonomous ships in order to get there. And I think a good friend of mine. Chris broS has done a good job of laying that case out in a recent foreign affairs article the need for a lot of inexpensive ships that aren't as exquisite which really complicates the targeting picture for China, for example, creates dilemmas in enemies mine. Now, the navy credit for prioritizing on communist system in their budget requests that has to be an increase of piece of the puzzle. Here is figure this thing out. All right, last category yesterday, or the day before Lockheed said Canas out of the competition, would you I help people with the? F. F. F. F. G. X is the is the future frigates. What we call a small surface combatant. So think something smaller than a destroyer, but still a big shift that has weapons on it that can go places in harbours tickling into Pacific region that big ships like destroyers. Can't go right now. That is the littoral combat ship. We are moving away and littoral combat ship and moving towards the frigate, which is a little bit more to it. Hopefully can carry some more lethal weapon systems on it. Now, in my shipyard, we are going to compete, what's called the friend, which is really the centerpiece of what thinking Terry, which is the world's best shipbuilder thinking, Terry, Meriden marine builds, and we're very excited about competing that shift work cited about a new arrangement where the shipbuilder will actually be what's called the prime previously, Lockheed was the prime in the shipbuilder was born into Lockheed's. I think this will ultimately result in a better ship. A more cost efficient ship for the navy. And I think walkie dropping out recognizes the reality that the navy wants to move away from the LCS dart before I come back to the time line. I also want to reference again to rule the ways by Arthur Herman turns out in World, War One and subsequently in World War. Two a lot of small ships, sub chasers and PT boats and destroyers are what saved England because they were able to convoy duty and defeat the wolf packs, we need a lot of f f g axes, and we gotta get started when does the navy in ten to pick pick one and get going. The awards gonna come, I believe, in July twenty twenty if I'm getting that correctly, that, that was the navy plans to announce the outcomes checks competition. The designs are underway. It's gonna be very robust competition. But as soon as we get that awarded we get the building and just to make another point on the need for smaller ships. Will they make two point two so smaller ships than even enough f-? Yes. Would for example, be a Mark six patrol boat that you deploy from the well well deck of the ship. A very small, but you can imagine a future environment putting something like a long range, missile and L L Raza on a Mark six patrol vote. And all of a sudden he's taking very small ship and made it a very lethal weapon that's going to create a lot of dilemmas for the PLA navy or the peel. I rocket force and that sort of creative thinking, we need to have in the navy right now as we think about how do we really increase our presence in the priority? Thea. The Indo Pacific theater, what we would call the Eurasian Ringling and the second point, I'd make on cue, more smaller ships, also create more command opportunities for younger navy. Officers no true, which is openly how we win relatives China right? China's weakness is that it's very hierarchical system, very top down system in some ways we need to embrace. What is great about America, and that's our innovative spirit? And that not only applies to the private sector. It applies to our military, right? We operate under what's called commander's intent. We are at our best. And we've devolved power and authority down to the lowest possible level. And that's how we succeed over our enemies in a very chaotic environment, where for example, you could use cyber weapons to negate your technological advantages, we need to embrace that and be able to out compete our adversaries in that chaotic environment last question, congressman Gallagher. It seems to me that if we advance the timetable for the decision it would not only get the ships faster, it would be. A real world test, Ron of how quickly we can get the defense, industrial base to operate, I'm reading this World War, Two history and boy, do we turn on a dime and, and issues came from orders came from Washington shipbuilders changed, and they made up their mix. If we said, we're picking in nineteen and we're producing twenty it would be a great stress test of our ability to deliver. So I agree. Let's pick northeast. Wisconsin today, hairnet should win win the competition right now and we'll get to build ships and they'll be the best ships in the fleet. But what about my concept if it's not from if it's anybody anything we haven't we haven't made a quick decision in any of the armed services on a platform, as long as I can remember, we've never acted quickly, it's risk aversion so it's warranted. Right. I think if you look back in the lessons learned of the littoral combat ship. There was a lot of changes in design along the way that increase the cost we never really settled on six design, and there was a lot of increasing complexity and a lot of uncertainty. And so I think the navy wants to avoid that. But you're right that we need to balance that with a sense of urgency of getting these ships in the water and the whole point of having more small surface combatants, a greater number of small shits, is that these things aren't the most exquisite. Vessels in the fleet. Right. They, you know, they may be more vulnerable than some other designs. But they're in what is called the contact layer as you look at the Pentagon's global operating model. Do want them visible every single day to the enemy want them out there. We want them to have presence. We want them to be engaged in the business of deterrence by denial telling the enemy every single day that they will not be able to keep their jackets, whether it's eating Taiwan rapidly or militarizing the south and East China Sea things like that. And that is the promise of the future. Frigate Representative Gallagher. Thank you. Follow him on Twitter at rep Gallagher.

"As well, you must deal with the fact that Taiwan sits there are natural barrier to aggression, my friend and colleague coast. Gordon Chang of the Daily Beast joins because within these last days. Taiwan is in the news and not happily about threats by the People's Republic of China and the PLA navy and air force, for example, datelined early April US national security adviser John Bolton slam China for an incursion to Taiwan's airspace. Taiwan's defense ministry said to Chinese jail eleven jet fighters crossed the center line in the Taiwan Strait on Sunday past Taiwanese, president CHAI England told reporters after the occurs incursion that such acts for part of a bid by China to upset the status quo and posed a threat to regional security, Gordon, a very good evening Q these threats to Taiwan happen now. And again has there been a change in the pacing to your measure, certainly John because just a couple of days ago. There was a Chinese bombers and fighters circled around the island, they were Chinese naval vessels that came very close to the southern tip of Taiwan. And the Taiwanese political establishment thinks that this really were rehearsals for the invasion of the south and southeastern portions of the main island of Taiwan. So this is getting serious way. Welcome our colleague, Arthur Waldron of the university of Pennsylvania where he is. Professor in international relations, and there seemed to be strained relations in East Asia. So for the last seventy plus years, Arthur, a very good evening to you. Do we regard these hardware incidence j eleven fighters past the central line as businesses usual or is this attach itself to some new some new initiative aggression, by shave Jinping, I would say it certainly the second that when Nixon visited long ago, we expected the United States and China, we're going to be friends, and we thought the China was going to evolve in kind of peaceful and liberal direction. We were not worried at all by Chinese military. Now, what we have suddenly discovered is China has a huge military extremely capable in certain respects, the targets us number as number one may think that they they ought to be. The sort of in the position that we are by. And this is the product of a nothing we've done it's the product of some kind of change in China that we don't understand that said it's extremely dangerous because if you start beating the drums of war, you may actually end up with the war that'd be passed. Arthur if you look at the transcripts of the meeting among president, Nixon Mazda Dong, JoAnne lie Henry Kissinger, you get the sense that Nixon and Kissinger thought that the Taiwan problem would solve itself that essentially the People's Republic of China would absorb Taiwan, the Republic of China, and that therefore would no longer be an irritant in Washington Beijing relations. But here we are so many years forty years more than forty years past the meeting in Beijing and Taiwan is there is a thriving democracy. It is vibrant. Society and low and behold, the United States is still dealing with the issue of Taiwan. This is this is fascinating. This is terrible. It's the worst miscalculation and American foreign policy history. But Mr. Kissinger was convinced Mr. Kissinger never been to Taiwan, rather odd if he were doing France and Germany you'd expect to be have gone to both of them. He's never been to Taiwan. Second the minute that he approached China the Chinese suspected trick. Because they said how is it that a man is not a China specialist as being sent by Nixon? So they called up Changcai shack and Taiwan and from nineteen sixty nine until nineteen eighty there is a secret communication between Taipei and paging every day. It was Gelin lie discuss the tricks of the Americans with Chiang KAI Shek that meant that Taiwan had ten years warning Kissinger always believed that the shock of. Of of being cut off by the United States would leave the elderly leadership to collapse and have heart attacks. And then he thought the people were going to rise up. He was clearly totally totally I informed, and what they found when we finally did make the break was that the Taiwanese seemed not to be surprised at all. And they were prepared for it. And they showed no interest in joining China. And what that means is that the one man the one moment when there was someone who had sufficient dictatorial power in Taiwan say, okay, I'm going to go back with my old buddies, and I'm gonna tell the army to make sure it's done. He died having done the opposite having lifted martial law. So there's no prospect in the future of any kind of unification unless China attacks, but. For China to attack would be insane. And these medicines activities are simply increasing. I think the willpower of Taiwanese to resist, and they're also focusing the United States on how wrongly were. And clearly if you look at the pace of our relations with Taiwan over the last three or four months, you see it becoming much more close. And this, of course, is a good thing because we've just celebrated a couple of days ago, the fortieth anniversary of US legislation the Taiwan Relations Act, which was supposed to mean that the United States would come to the defense of Taiwan, although there's no specific requirement do so, but clearly that was the intent of the drafters of the legislation, and you know, as you've pointed out this was supposed to be just a temporary stopgap Bill and now we've got four decades. So I think that there's a very important point here, which is that even though. We've made great progress in coming to terms with the reality that the Nixon Kissinger Carter policy is a complete failure. And has ended up creating a very dangerous new aggressor in East Asia. We still haven't come to realize that we have to start treating Taiwan as a reality where she has to be reincorporated into the international community. We're going to have to redirect Nuys her. The rest of the countries of the world are going to have to recognize. We can't go on another forty years playing this silly game. That was intended as you say simply to be sort of an interval before the inevitable capture the island by the Chinese. Here's the puzzle about. Everyone listening on your iphone right now. Take a glance at it. And at Meyer, the construction admired the genius of this iphone is assembled. Thanks to the genius of Taiwa amendment. Tarik wall is the president self made billionaire of Foxconn Gordon's visited Foxconn months upon in mainland. China it assembles our phones at assembles ipads as well. It works for apple the assembly has been in China heretofore mainland China under the auspices of FOX common why? Because Foxconn response to courts because Foxconn is based in a Republican democracy as opposed to the mainland by Terry quals now indicated he's interested in running for president of Taiwan. He said that he talked with seagull, right, Gordon, Matsu and gave him permission. All right. Whether he runs or not on the Guangdong doc that. Means that Terry wa is Taiwa your iphone is Taiwan. We're Arthur my last question to you work completely integrated with Taiwan everybody who's high phone in America. That's taiwan. And and so therefore, it's a done deal. China cannot attack our phones. Well, I wish it were that simple. I think that China is capable of doing tremendous damage, and we might even have iphone problems. So I say production could be moved somewhere else. But we have to do is look at the fact that PRC honestly thinks they could take Taiwan militarily realize that we have to make damn sure they can't Taiwan has to do the same thing. And then we have to say what is going to be the new world order there in East Asia because we can't have China kind of breathing down Taiwan's neck, and you haven't mentioned. Japan.

"Is the aggression by the navy and other military units of the red Chinese military to be aggressive a predator state towards its neighborhood. Towards the South China Sea in these China Sea towards the Philippines, charged Japan. Vietnam, we've told this story anecdotally over the years, a new book helps us tell this story from the point of view of the US navy, and what is to be done by the US navy and its allies as the Chinese advance their strategy because that's what it is. It's an it's a big big plan. That is well underway. We saw it under the Obama administration. And we now see it under the Trump administration. We welcome professor Andrew Eriksson along with his colleague Ryan Martensson published a new book China's maritime grey zone operations. This is a collection of as the professor and his colleague written a conclusion there are general themes, but we're going to establish the first thing the specialized language, a professor accent is a professor of strategy at the naval war college China. Maritime studies institute, professor a very good evening. Thank you for this. We divide the Chinese strategy into colorful characters the gray hulls the White House and the blue halls. What am I describing what what is what is the intention of the PLA navy with those three elements? Good evening to you. Thank you, John. It's great to be here. Good evening to you. You rightly highlighted the fact that China has not one not two but three major C forces the gray hulls are those in China's navy the largest navy in the world by number of ships larger even than the US navy by that metric the white hulls. Are those of China's newly consolidated coastguard likewise, the world's largest by number of ships. Finally and Lisa understood are the blue holes those in China's maritime militia, which is a sub component of its armed forces. But one that China's seek to have operate in the shadows. It is the white hulls and the blue halls that have been instrumental in many of China's gradual consolidation of its disputed sovereignty claims in the South China Sea and. Increasing efforts in the East China see us. Well, one more color the grey zone. What does that refer to professor well as with any term academics are more than capable of debating, the very term forever. What we're talking about? In the grey zone is a Chinese effort to advance in maritime space and to advance its control over contested features islands rocks reefs in the eastern South China Sea. Ideally without firing a shot. So it's a zone between what we conventionally think of as peace or war. China is making efforts using using national power using some form of force. But with the lowest level of esscalation possible consistent with achieving its aims over time. So Andrew in the Ukraine. We've got people called the little green men. And in the South China Sea and East China Sea, you've identified another group the little blue men who are the little blue men. And what are they doing? Well, thank you. Gordon? Always great to talk to you. And you've put your finger on two very important actors in today's international system as to authoritarian states attempt to change the status quo in their favor in ways that are odds at odds with international law and international order in the case of China. It uses its maritime, Melissa it's People's Armed forces maritime militia, which I've colloquially termed little blue men. This is a force that is operates under a PL a chain of command a military chain of command reporting all the way up to. Commander in chief Xi Jinping himself. It is trained and supported by the the peo- a trained in part by the peo- a navy. There is no plausible deniability here. It is. It can be thought of as a very large pyramid at the bottom. There are many very basic personnel and vessels that just do things along the coast that don't interfere with any other nations claims or efforts there's a small elite at the top a small number of a rate units that are trained for an empowered to be engaged in international. See incidence and some of them are part time and can be called up as needed some of them. Now are full time and are essentially trolling for disputed sovereignty claims all the time, but those elite units have her. Harassed US vessels day have participated in the seizure of various disputed features. They have advanced China's presence in disputed water space, particularly in the in the South China Sea. These are generally professionals who have day jobs were had day jobs in China's marine industry, especially fishing fishing industry. Select ones are recruited into the time militia together with their vessels, and they are trained and they receive compensation in in return for that training, and for various types of service that they perform for the new full-time units that are being developed on centered on a for example. Woody island in the parasols Assange city, these are very well compensated professionals a number of them are recruited from the PLA itself. They receive excellent salary and benefits, and we have seen no evidence that they have to engage in fishing at all they rather engage in rotational deployments to Chinese outposts on disputed features in the South China Sea. And we see at least one example of maintaining a consistent presence around sandy K near a fee to island, which is claimed and occupied by the Philippines. So these individuals are are quite knowable. We can we can track. Many of them are through open sources certainly their units. In many cases, we know the whole numbers of their vessels. And again, the most advanced ones are half the best. Compensation and the best equipment to include dozens of purpose built vessels that the office of naval intelligence has publicly published silhouette Sovan whole number ranges in its recognition guide. This is very knowable. So we can call them little blue man, we can call this the grey zone. But in fact, it's not nearly as mysterious as China would have habits if us believe and as all explain later on. I think there's actually a lot more Rican due to respond effectively to this force and to render it ineffective, but we haven't done enough of that yet. So there's a lot more work to be done. A couple of more details. Professor first of all you report that there are now two hundred and twenty-five Whitehall's five hundred tonnes are larger this dwarfs the number of coast guard vessels that the US South Korea Japan all together dwarf said you also report that the Whitehall's along with the blue halls are participating. Or what is called cabbage tactics? What is that? So this is an example of where there's not a common Chinese term for cabbage tactics. Put some some Chinese some Chinese thinkers have used the term, and it really describes. Well, what China's actually doing in various international see incidents as well. As various types of patrols, China has used an approach of invalid ping disputed features or in one case and an oil platform operating in disputed areas with rings of different types of festivals typically coast, there will be a ring of coast guard vessels and a ring of maritime militia vessels, in some cases, the maritime militia vessels might be in the outer ring, and for example. Engaging with. Vietnamese counterparts that were trying to get closer to the Chinese oil rig in two thousand fourteen operating in disputed waters. In other cases, the Chinese coast guard vessels may be in the outer ring with vowed mission of protecting Chinese quote, unquote, fishermen or merit to actual maritime militia vessels operating close to be closer to a disputed feature in in question. So the cabbage is a an involvement by these two grey zone forces of a disputed feature now typically all three Chinese forces are working in concert. And in many cases, PL a navy. Vessels are monitoring the situation from afar as what Chinese sources would call a backstop. They're they're ready to move in if call to do so and they are designed to their presence is designed to cast an intimidating shadow over the whole situation showing the China has the willingness and the ability. To escalate if it decides to do one more detail before we moved to what is to be done. I'm presuming the Whitehall's and the blue halls work together. And you just described how the gray hulls back them up. Is this a tactics being used against the Philippines now are against Vietnam now or against Japan now? My my understanding, and as and as is described in our book in reviewing some of the past incidents there most certainly is that kind of coordination in the Scarborough reef incident of of twenty twelve for example, the incident was triggered by maritime militia vessels, fishing, both inside and outside the parameters of the reef itself as the Philippines, tried to enforce environmental regulations with its own within its own exclusive economic zone by dispatching a vessel to board and search these the maritime militiamen aboard the the Chinese vessels participating monitored the situation identified the Philippine navy vessel radio back to their shore base requested support. And China coast guard vessels were vectored from another location to arrive on the scene and to get involved and create the standoff that ensued. So that's that's cabbage cabbage tactics will turn to that. And what is to be done when we come back with professor Ericsson with Android arc with his colleague, Orion Martensson of published. A new book is about the story that Gordon I've been telling anecdotally for some years about Chinese aggression in the in East Asia and the western Pacific the book is entitled China's maritime grey zone operations. It's an edited book their essays in all directions, where establishing the language of grey zone operations in when we come back an incident that took place in two thousand fourteen at an oil rig, Gordon, and I reported this in the waters that were then associated with Vietnam. What did we learn from that incident? I'm John Batchelor with Gordon Chang. Of the Daily Beast. The new tax law took away many of the deductions that we used to take. But the charitable deduction is still going.
