A new poll commissioned by the Ronald Reagan presidential foundation found 52% of Americans see China as the country's top foe. It comes as the U.S. looks to improve bases in the Asia Pacific region. Earlier today, defense secretary Lloyd Austin found the U.S. would maintain its capability to deter potential Chinese threats. We know that China conducted a test of a hypersonic weapon on the 27th of July, and the pursuit of those capabilities increases tensions in the region. Gordon Lew both covers The Pentagon for us and he joins us now. Good morning. Hi, how are you? Doing well, thank you. It doesn't sound all that surprising that half of the USC's China is the primary threat. Hasn't the U.S. government seen it that way for years? So it's interesting question because on some level it is surprising to me because as a reporter covers this, it can be a challenge to find ways to write stories from national security standpoint that affect normal Americans and their everyday lives because some of the stuff we write about China's influence in the Middle East or things happening in the South China Sea are things that don't affect average Americans. As a remarkable jump in the number of people who believe China is a security threat and I think part of it is yes, despite all the turmoil in the Middle East and certainly Afghanistan over the last several months, the recurring theme is China, China, China. What kind of threat are we talking about here? Is this the American public's China as a military threat or is it something else? So the military threat is kind of like maybe the animating threat that people may see, I think Americans are hearing more and more about China is a rising power. It's doing things that can be perceived as a bit nefarious around the world. Concerned about trade and the economy and the ability of China to create this narrative and build on this narrative as it's a rising power. And that on some level, I think, probably affects a lot of Americans thinking about it being a security threat. But the military is where you see a more ambitious military navy modernization plans that really eclipse the ability of the U.S. Military to kind of keep up. So I think that's kind of part of what you're seeing. Well, tell me a little bit more about that. I mean, how capable is China's military? Is it building a second aircraft carrier, which is in offensive weapon? Yes, and so it's modernization is of its military is robust and it's moving forward on building more ships, carriers included and at the same time the U.S. have two 178 ships, navy ships, and they're trying to get to a goal of 355 ships, but there's all kinds of budget problems and manufacturing problems or whatever. Meanwhile, China is turning out. It's modernization plans and building stuff. And as we saw recently tested, again, a hypersonic missile and this was probably punctuated the idea that they are really moving much faster than the U.S. on that technology as an example. And so it's a worrying concern. So is the U.S. repositioning its assets? It's moving things out of the Middle East and around the world. So it is and it isn't. It's a complicated question because this has been attention since before president Obama was trying to do the quote unquote Asia pivot, which was largely empty in terms of actually moving military capabilities and forces to the region. There's more of a consensus that that's what has to happen. But I think what the Biden administration is finding is when it gets down to it, devil is in the details because it's hard to just pull everything out. They're experiencing problems now. And when it comes to talk about China, you know, the story recently about China's growing influence and attempts growing influence in the gulf in particular in the UAE. And so if the gulf allies are seeing the U.S. pulling out of the region, they're in China's offering up its economic, its military, different capabilities. There's a tension there. So I think the Biden administration is realizing, it's not just so simple, just to leave the Middle East. Does this feel like there's shades of a new Cold War? Certainly there's an argument that there are shades of a new Cold War, we're certainly going into a more pronounced version of some kind of non kinetic conflict with China and there's concerns that a miscalculation on either side could trigger an actual crisis. So it's a little unclear, but check back and we can maybe make a better assessment and come in minds. That is national security Porter Gordon low build. Thanks for your time. Thank you..

Sec. Lloyd Austin Dismisses England in Comments on China
"I originally scheduled to talk to you because you wrote a column for townhall dot com about secretary austin's comments on china and i couldn't believe it. I had missed it entirely. But i've been on vacation for two week. I really could not believe it and so would you walk me through what he said and what he meant to say. Sure absolutely it was very eye-opening. One hundred percent. And lloyd austin has kept a pretty low profile for the first six months anyway and you know his former general and he hasn't really stepped out of his lane at dod and lo and behold he both he and and president biden did two things last week number one. They declined whatsoever to give any sort of a progress report. On where the investor army the investigation stands on getting to the bottom of who is responsible for the china virus. Well we know that. China all signs point to the wuhan lab but That was something that biden was sort of backed into in late may in terms of actually calling for an investigation throughout the intelligence community. And we're coming up on two weeks now until the that report is due on the twenty fourth of august and they were absolutely and there were supposed to be a forty five day report as part of this ninety day review. Absolute crickets from both austin as well as from biden and awesome was over in the region in china and the fact that he failed to mention anything about holding china accountable and getting to the bottom of that is is the first one but the second problem is even more grievous. Is that austin while he was there. The british have unveiled a new aircraft carrier called the queen. Elizabeth and the queen loses a very impressive aircraft carrier and she took her first voyage or her first deployment into the south china sea and austin while he was over there said well you know the british ought to really stick to other places and we'll take care of the south china sea Meantime president trump. Is you know hugh. He put a big premium on having our allies in concert working in the south china sea building up the indo pacific partnership and he was pardon. Me there was exactly the opposite from lloyd austin while he was there in the region

What Is Joe Biden's New China Doctrine?
"Optimists long hoped that welcoming china into the global economy would make a responsible stakeholder and bring about political reform as president. Donald trump blasted that week now. Joe biden is converting trumpian bombast into doctrine that pits america against china a struggle between rival political systems. Which he says can have only one winner between. Mr trump and mr biden have engineered the most dramatic break in american foreign policy in the five decades since richard nixon went to china mr biden and his team based their doctrine on the belief that china is less interested in coexistence and more interested in dominance. The task of american policy is to blunt. chinese ambitions. America will work with china in areas of common interest like climate change but counter. Its ambitions elsewhere. That means building up the strengths at home and working abroad with allies that can supplemented economic technological diplomatic military. And moral haft much about mr biden's new doctrine make sense. The optimistic case for engagement has crumbled under the realities of chinese power led by president. Xi jinping china has garrison the south china sea imposed party rule on hong kong threaten taiwan skirmished with india and has tried to subvert western values in international bodies. Many countries are alarmed by china's wolf warrior diplomacy but the details of the biden doctrine contain much to worry about not least that it is unlikely to work. One problem is how. Mr biden defines threat because politics in washington is broken. He seems to feel that he needs the spirit of pearl harbor to help. Rekindle a sense of national purpose. That is a miscalculation it is true. That republicans jump on anything. They can as soft on china even though every time. They say that the presidential election was stolen. They do the work of chinese propagandists

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

Is Dennis Beale, a China correspondent will call him because he spent many years in China as a teacher, and there's a perception out there. Dennis welcome to the show that China wants to take over. And dominate America and not just America. But the whole world. Are we right as Americans to think that China wants to take over America and the rest of the world What do you think? Well, I think I pretty much agree with that. If they could do it, they would do it and they will do it. If they can. However, they tried to give the perception that no, no, no, That's not true. They just wanna have You know, friendly relations with other countries, and that way they can kind of like easier way in without having to do it by force. If they have to do it by force later, ultimately, you know, they could do that. But as I mentioned the two of you before, I think they're trying to just sort of set it up. So that they can provoke other countries. What with all the nonsense in the South China Sea and the the artificial islands that they use for trying to control the whole area. And then they're trying to control the airspace and see an ocean space and so forth, and they're trying to dominate that whole area and the people of America and its allies the Philippines. And South Korea, Japan so forth they're trying to, like, keep everyone out in the stage, and they this imagined area that they control. Then they will make it come down in retaliation rather than attacking moat. Right. Let me ask you. First of all, you spent a number of years as a teacher in China. You were telling me Yes, almost 10 years I was there. And how long have you been back? Did bad for about 2.5 years. Okay, so it probably hasn't changed all that much. What do you know about this Silk highway? Yeah, the sock highway. You know, it was way in the past the past centuries where they would take all their China would take all their silk and other ways and go around. So highway almost all the way to Europe and to Europe, Actually, Rome and then from there, they would take out boats and so forth to the other countries. But they would go there and exchange with Italy and Rome and Tried to sell their wares mostly silk. That's what they call Soco Road now is just soaked highway because they're trying to develop it. Someone you know from Asia and China all the way there. So they can they can be there. You know, there's a connection if they want to do anything you know, suddenly are obviously with regard to Europe. Yeah, so, obviously that you know, with Wal Mart and all these big box stores, you know, buying everything as much as they can through China because it's cheaper there. They're paving that silk highway and and to me, it's like a plastic highway.

Beijing lists grievances against Australia, giving warning to other countries with tense China relations
"Relations between beijing and canberra deteriorating. Awhile have created spectacularly in recent months. Australia has excluded while away from australia's five g network. Australia has cold for an international investigation into the origins of the covid nineteen pandemic. It's spoken up in support of hong kong and protested against china's treatment of its wiegand minority and china has bristled at all of these moves. Some of china's responses have been merely rhetorical and calls medic including crudely goading australia. You've alleged crimes committed by string. Troops in afghanistan others had more measurable effects. Devastating tariffs on australian exports to china including especially ruinous levies on australian. Wine has china decided to full out with australia. How should australia or any other country. China has a popat react or adjust. And is there any way back to cooperation with china for australia or anyone else. This is the foreign desk. My advice to punish morrison repeatedly has do more say lis- do more is in fact. A series of concrete measures enhancing national security pows enhancing now fundamental economic cow enhancing population growth and strengthening our alliances and relationships with countries around the world. Or just the united states but in southeast asia and beyond as well so this kind of patriotism and chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of covid domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its cover up and handling. I'm so getting the country tonight. This way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be spending so it's really two birds. One stone the chinese government should be totally a shined of this past. It diminishes them in the world is hello and welcome to the foreign. I'm andrew muller. China is not a nation known for its impulsively where foreign policy is concerned but using tends to act carefully and deliberately so it should be assumed that it is acting carefully and deliberately towards australia for a look at what china is doing and why china is doing. It joined first of all from beijing by sophia yan china correspondent for the daily telegraph severe festival. I think what we're trying to establish here is whether this is a specific row between china and australia or something. We might see more of in china's dealings with western democracies in general but we will start with stralia. Does it strike you. That china is going out of. Its way to pick a fight with australia. Or is this something. That's just kind of happened. Organically absolutely china's definitely targeting australia. It's been going for some time and it's obviously hit a peak. Now it's every day. There seems to be something new in the sputtered. Diplomatic spat between beijing and camera. And what beijing's really trying to do is to make australia of retail. Australia is a major. Us ally part of the five. The lions and australia matches on values with america. So hunting. Australia is a way for china to send a message to other. Us allies or the country's just thinking about siding with washington and to try to prevent them from considering policies that china dislikes bans on chinese tech firms over national security risks while we issue for instance even territorial disputes in the south china sea being public about stances over hong kong and taiwan china does not want countries to get involved with what it thinks is its own backyard so pressuring australia. This way is just one way to show. Hey this is what can happen to your country if you dare to take on. There's an upside to this too. It's certain swagger for the domestic audience to show that this all powerful country china can finally stand up to the west. You have to remember that. For the chinese government and for many chinese people there is a very painful history and memory of what's called the quit century accumulation. That was the hundred years before the communist party took power in nineteen forty nine during which many say the glorious chinese empire crumbled at the hands of foreign powers. The brits the russians japanese china at the time lost almost all the wars fought. And actually that's when hong kong was ceded to the brits so this kind of patriotism in chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of cova kovic domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its botch cover up in handling and still getting the country two nights in this way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be sending so it's really two birds. One stone does a number of things going on there but let's just focus on one of them because it is a proximate cause of china's irritation with australia and indeed china's irritation with a few other countries. Which is far away and other chinese companies being locked out of five g networks. Why does china perceive that as an argument worth starting because it's not imaginable that any of these countries are going to change their minds. Way is in a way national champion. It's a private company. It's not state owned. But of course any company that succeeds in china is in some ways states approved so to succeed here. You definitely need to have certain. Party officials Tests the quench relationships and people in high positions in your corner and so while we the company that really shows and reflects the rise of china. It's headquartered in shenzhen which just two three decades ago with a rice patty backwater. Now it's silicon valley hub of china and this company itself really does show how quickly the economy here has grown china now. The world's second largest economy in china trauma very broad level wants to be taken seriously on the world stage and so attacking hallway company. That many would consider really national. Champion is attacking the status. That china now thinks it should have on the world stage so it's ironic also that there's concern from beijing. That other nations are talking about who as a national security risk because china itself has long said that it wants to keep certain industries telecoms utilities oil and gas within its own country at state-owned enterprises. Because they themselves. Beijing is concerned about the very same issue that foreign players could come into the country. Take a big share of the market and therefore be competitive domestically. They didn't want to see control here to foreign companies over the issue of national security. So it's actually a bit ironic for china to now be upset with other nations for saying that a chinese company coming in to build critical national infrastructure. Whether that's a nuclear plant or the telecoms network but then to say hey. You can't say that this is a risk. We don't pose a risk. it's it's it's it's. It's not very fairly for china to be saying that other nations

"I'm Charlie Pellet that Isa Bluebird business Flash. Charlie. Hello. Thank you so much. We appreciate it. Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Cara master Paul Sweeney with you bringing back our guest, David Riedel, president and founder of Redl Research Group. And the reason this conversation is important, Davis reminding us. That China and U. S. Tensions remain high and there are significant ramifications. We need to keep that on the front burner as investors, David Thanks so much for coming back. You know, I want to get to the point of president G. What is his position right now? In China? It seems as strong as it's ever been, Is it It is the strongest leader that they've seen in recent decades. Hey, controls every lover of power continues to make himself evermore powerful on hasn't tried himself in Chinese political history by implementing what's considered now to be. She thought on the same level as the dogs thought, which is an incredible accomplishment for a modern Chinese leader. What is what is she thought? It revolves around a strong belief in nationalism that that's been true for many leaders, but it's more core to seize identity and a very significant commitment to the military. She has been dramatically expanding military spending. They've built several times Mohr ships since 2015. Then the US has and now have a larger navy than the US. This is an incredible turnaround of the last 10 or 15 years. When Chinese lack of a blue water navy was really one of their military weeks, weak spots so complete control of the of the military of the political apparatus. And a dedication of all those resources to protecting China's national borders and national mission. No, David When you talk about the build up of the military is that for show of might or is that for actual might actually it's for actual Might they really feel very strongly that they need to have Control of MME or more firm control of their borders, heads the dispute with India a few weeks ago and very significantly protected. They're strong belief that they need to control the South China Sea for its oil and gas reserves, as well as his importance for seagoing trade on DH. It's so important to you. North Asia, Japan and Korea as well as to China getting access to all the materials they need to continue to run the largest economy in the world. So David. What? What do you think? The Chinese government leadership? Once. How does it want its relationship with United States to evolve? Did they? Are they looking for conflict Are they looking for Hey, just treat us as an equal partner. What do they think you think they're looking for? Do they not even care about us that much and they don't they do. I think they do care about their standing on the international state. So let's globalize this 1st 2nd less important. What their relationship is with the U. S. But they do want to see themselves in the upper echelon of countries a equivalent power to the United States, for example, and they do have a 50 100 year view of how they're going to evolve towards This position of being the wealthiest country in the world, the largest country in the world and the most powerful country in the world, and they'll wait generations to do it. They just Really feel like they were humiliated by international powers back in the 18 hundreds, and they never want to live through that again, so they need to be strong, powerful and very well, well grounded in terms of their ability to control their sphere. So what holds them back, and I do wonder too about, you know they're certainly their relationships with the big global powers. But there's also you know, relationships that they do on the side, and I do wonder how much pushback we see from other developed nations, especially when it comes to human rights abuses, privacy concerns and And other things that if you are going to operate in the upper echelon of power, echelons of power, you know there are certain rules that go along with that. That's right, and we had all we have long believed that as they they became more involved in global negotiations and discussions of multilateral organizations and so forth. They would start to Play by those rules, But we've learned in the last 10 or 12 years that they're actually working to change those rules so they.
At a Crossroads? China-India Nuclear Relations After the Border Clash
"We start the program tracking one of the most potentially SA- serious spot points globally the ongoing hostilities between the nuclear-armed countries, India and China earlier this week they discharged weapons that each other for the first time in forty five years as a four month standoff between their armed forces escalated into warning shots in the western Himalayas. The skirmishes worryingly reminiscent of the circumstances surrounding the beginning of a war between the two in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two. Yesterday. The foreign ministers of the two countries met in Russia in a bid to defuse the military standoff Jonah Slater New Delhi Bureau chief for The Washington Post and Isabel Hilton China dialogue join me on the line now. Thanks both for for joining us is about what was behind this most recent exchange of shots. That rather depends who you believe I mean one. Of the meeting that has taken place in Moscow, which has been some extent. Calming is that neither side will acknowledge any wrongdoing and indeed continue to blame the other. There is a very in general terms there isn't defined line of actual, control? The seem to be signs that the past three or four months across quite a a a length of it. So not just in one sector, China has been a pushing the actual you know situation on the ground by crossing the line of Control China, accuse his India doing the same thing in this most recent incidents and says that it had to fire shots in the ad to deter what was Indian aggression India has said over the repeated incidents over the past few months that China has advanced and then has not on a promises to retreat. So we now have quite an extended standoff which began in the in the West and sector. But has now extended to the eastern sector to what in your Natural Pradesh which to southern. Tibet. So it's a sustained standoff still during the what more do we know about the outcome of the meeting between the two men yesterday Well we know that they met for two and a half hours a lengthy meeting their first in person meetings since the crisis began Jason Curve India's foreign minister is a is a former ambassador to China. He has deep experience there. But in terms of outcomes, what we basically have is an agreement to continue talking it's not nothing but it's definitely not a breakthrough I mean Isabel do you think there's any real appetite for compromise and given China's current aggressive stance globally will one be trying to dial it down I think that I don't see very much appetite for compromise on either side we all you have is highly nationals governments which both. Set great store on territorial integrity and and then of course, you come to the sensitive point where the territories real defined and then you have a you know constant potential for confrontation. But if you add to that I mean what one thing that is very different from in in this border confrontation with other areas of conflict China like the South China Sea for example, where were you have because it's accessible and and territory marine territory that's used by lots of different kinds of people in people from from different countries, you can enact a conflict at a lower level if you like using fishing boats or or customs boats, and you don't actually have to use your main forces. But this is highly inaccessible territory. The only people who are out there really are our armed forces and they have increased. Both sides have increased the presence of their forces really dramatically in the last few months, and in the last few years, they have increased access to the border by building infrastructure building roads and railway building roads rather So you have the potential to mobilize both heavy weaponry and larger numbers of troops When you have a moment like this, do strategically, I would say that China is trying to discourage India from. Joining in a mall full blooded way any anti-chinese coalition organized by the United States so the has been quite a warm relationship between Modiin trump as we know, and and the question is how far India will take this because that could be a Catholic. And during this meeting, come about because the to happened to be in Moscow anyway or is Russia playing the piece Burqa. Well. Both of them would have been at this meeting, but it does seem that Russia is playing a little bit of a role of convener here as a country that. Ostensibly would like to see tensions reduce. It has constructive relationships with both countries there have been reports in the Indian media suggesting that I'm sorry that Russia was doing some quiet diplomacy behind the scenes earlier in this crisis but I think the these these two men obviously would have been there anyway just comes at a very. Sensitive, sensitive, and important time. It's about what's in it for? Would I guess it's less less difficulty in the neighborhood they do as we've heard have rush the Russians do have constructive relations Russia likes to be seen as a broker these days I mean the whole trajectory of Putin's kind of outward posture has been to assert Russia's important so to be able to mediate between a traditional friend India and. country. Rival with whom relations little complicate it China would greatly enhanced prestige. One of the difficulties is that what we know from the reorganization, for example, the Chinese military which is put sheeting. Very firmly, inconspicuously in command, we need to assume I think that decision is made about deployment of troops and our posture go very much to the top So you know without a signal from the tall, the foreign ministers of my decide couldn't actually resolve this. Yeah. How do you think this fits in with the the general foreign policy aims of India. I don't think expected crisis with China I. think that was not part of its. Foreign Policy Goals as Isabelle was speaking about no, India is. Wary of China's rise, it has been drawing closer to the United States and also to this grouping called the Quad, which includes the United States Japan and Australia this one of the interesting aspects about this crisis with China along the line of actual control is that India says at least that it's at a loss to understand why China is doing this it repeated that again today that. Shot, the tiny side has not provided a credible explanation for this deployment. Jay Shankar, the foreign minister a few days ago said repeated that India's is a little bit flummoxed here, and so if China is sending a message that it doesn't want India to draw closer to the United States, India's not really getting the message quite clearly So I think that's one of the strange parts about this entire episode, which is we don't India claims at least not really understand what China's motivations are for this. Quite significant deployment along the line of actual control which began in April and then Burst into actual skirmishes, skirmishes in May, and then the deadliest violence between the two countries and more than fifty years in June. I mean Isabel attorneys right WH- one can't really see what's in it for China I. Mean as you say, this is an area where there's really not very much. It's inaccessible the only people there are the soldiers. What's the point? I think the point is is partly to shore up she gene pins reputation at home is a vigorous defender of China's global position and Chinese sovereignty, and you might well argue that that sovereignty over a few miles of inaccessible mountain compass matter but they matter symbolically domestically in China. It also might be I mean, we've seen a passion of a very assertive behavior. Put it no more strongly from China pretty much since the coronavirus outbreak and a lot of you know if you look across the piece it what's been going on there had been provocations in around Taiwan with you with Chinese. Military flights crossing into Taiwanese airspace very recently and and we have you know I, think for the first time that I can recall in. Since the sixties we have on this board, we have confrontations in both the important western sector and the equally important eastern sector. Now, that's that's kind of unusual that does signal a much more firm intent to send a message even if it's not a message that India understand. So it may be a message that's being directed to the Chinese public that you know we can do this because we are bigger and stronger than India and we will continue to defend. China's position in the world.

What does South East Asia want from the US and China?
"Bland is director of South, East Asian program at the low institute and Longley to. She's a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute walk into your by. Ben How is the increasingly assertive use and indeed Australian position on China. How is that being interpreted in South East Asia. We have this is a very broad region of ten countries of different size from giants like Indonesia to minnows, like Brunei to have been diverse reactions, but broadly speaking I think there's a lot of frustration with the trump administration the way it's being on the one hand increasingly unilateral and unpredictable. But on the other hand, there's this fear of US abandonment if you like in a long-term leaving the region to. Gemini so I think we have to understand. It's a complex picture, right? So the US has to treaty allies in southeast, Asia Thailand, and the Philippines and they've been amongst the countries that are most China friendly and most frustrated with the US government in recent years be while we see a former. FO- like Vietnam there's being one of the most receptive of the US approach to. Try and run the loss years. So it's quite complicated I. Think the real risk here is that the US government and to a lesser extent that I'm camera believes that it's more assertive stance on China is appreciated in the region and I think that's really not necessarily the case because at the end of the day like Australia. But most South East Asian countries China is that biggest. Partner, as well as being geographic neighbor is that you're reading to Huang given the Vietnam of course has been just mentioned is a Cold War Foe of united, states but in in the face of verizon charts getting closer to Washington. Southeast Asian nations have gone through a different phases of. Living next to China, they've known China. Through historical engagements of this is not a new thing for them. The anxiety about China's and China's might end as you mentioned, they've gone through A. Competition to window call when they have still vivid memories of that. So in overall I think they they do have anxiety. There is a pronounced anxiety about the intensifying great-power competition that might. Lead to similar way of asking them to choose sides like was in the Cold War but I think all of them want to keep both China and us in the region a engaged. Also not too. Aggressive or not to assertive, and they also want to involve other. Powers not only the be the two big ones but also Japan Australia's are career and the European countries. A little bit of competition is good for them but took much competition can be nervous. Let's bring it to Indonesia Ben. There's your name subject at the end of last year Indonesia and China had a face off over the ownership of the Natuna islands which are in the southernmost part of the area of the South China Sea claimed by China. Where does Jakarta stand on China? Now it's an, it's an interesting question building a wall who was just talking about because we look at Indonesia's president. Jerko with widow known as Jacoby, I've just written the first English biography of him the plug in that. He he is an economy I president. He is someone who is above all interested in creating more jobs, getting more investment into Indonesia, and especially during a time of covid nineteen when the economy's really collapsed and Jacoby is a transactional leaders that he wants those who are bringing the most money with fewer conditions and right now that is China Chinese state-owned companies. Chinese. Private companies like qualify as well. On, the other hand of course, Jacoby has to be seen to be defending Indonesia's sovereignty and we have had these clashes over fishing rights. I have access to certain waters that you mentioned. So I think when those of come to head, Jacoby has made a symbolic stance. He's gone out to the tune of see visited the islands gone onto ability ship a symbolic declaration. He's going to defend Indonesia's sovereignty but by in laws you trying to stay away from these. Geopolitical issues to play down the tensions with China said of the economic relationship can keep developing. So it's a really difficult balance and I think there's also a shift that's potentially happening in Indonesia. So the old guard if you like in the Foreign Ministry and the government in the military, they really view above all other things strategic autonomy on non-alignment as being the key for Indonesia. So don't get into any alliances don't get too close to any one power but. There isn't new of God if you like coming through increasing, you think Indonesia needs to be a bit more active about engaging with potentially the US Australia, the Europeans Japanese to try and balance out the region. But for now are really think with Jacoby in the hot seat it's the economy I put the geopolitics aside at the end of the day that's a positive for China, but it's not an open and shut case because the had been long been tensions. Between Indonesia and China. So Jacoby like a lot of other leaders in the region, we'll have to find this delicate balance, but it's getting harder and harder and Huong Vietnam your nation. Let's talk about that. It's been pushing back against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea, which threatens Vietnam oil drilling and fisheries, and of course, it's had an ongoing dispute about water flows in me congresses where China has built dams stream at tell us more about Vietnam position on China. Is Getting nece position on on current China is also a frustrated I. Think at Phnom has gone grew proably among all in countries have had the longest history of interaction with China and most cases where it was trying to defend its own national sovereignty and resist China's expansionist tendencies. So it's been ingrained in Vietnamese National Psyche I would say current us of China Sea conflict to end disputes are only. One of the examples of that, but it is similarly with others opposition countries, which is it's harder and harder to seek more peaceful avenues of dispute because it is a strategy in the South China Sea is among others was to include the direct dialogue with China but that is not really much come to help these days with Chinese expansion expansionist tendencies. Now, you mentioned also on which is very important. Aspect in the relationship. Phnom is at any of the lower mccown and China, is a deal a top of the upper and it's projects of a building dams and not only in China, but a call goes invest in dance in now Cambodia Yaman and Thailand that blocks blocks the water flow blocks were flow of the river, which is very important for agricultural conditions in. Asia and it is called the bowl of rice for the region and the countries. Of course, they export rise agricultural produce and also Crohn's fish and stuff like that. So we've China's interference into ecological nature of the river that can potentially add cost a lot of income for the countries, but also with a backup climate change that can pose a certain at time. Security threat to the food safety and food security of the region. So it is quite a leverage that China can have on the lower countries including at Phnom follow question to Ben Bland. Given what you said earlier about the relatively nuanced in measured response of south. East. Asia towards the United. States if you like trying to ride two horses simultaneously. What happens if China's rise continues on, abide it and seeks to dominate the region and America as the acting regional hegemony on goes to great lengths to stop China from dominating is where do you think? Will be of Southeast Asia then it's it's really hard to say how things go election coming up in the US very soon, I think that could have a big impact on how how things go in the. Trump and pretty anti-china. There's really a difference in degree rather than just shooting Washington goes to great lengths to stop China what they. In, that scenario. All I think I think we're probably not GONNA get to a situation where South East Asian countries have to choose one side of such. But what they will have to do is face an increasing number of difficult small choices about what technology they use in their mobile networks about what military exercises that willing to do about what investment projects say yes or no To so life will get tougher and tougher for the region, but I don't think at the end of the day. Any of the countries will be willing to join an alliance either with the US or with China. So they're going to keep trying to find the space in the gaps in between to try and exploit competition for the best interest if you're looking at. The longer term picture I think there's ways the big affair of the US just turning back inwards and the ultimately that the trump presidency. The rise of trump is probably a symptom of the issues in the US which are gonNA lead to a turning inwards and maturing of the US as a power being less influential pretension in Asia and the rest of the world. So, it may not be a question of China in the US coming to a head but the US rhetoric increasing the US pretend you withdrawing from the region

We're waiting right now for Vice President Mike Pence, who was slated to begin speaking in just a couple of minutes from right now. Set the station I want to bring back in our Bloomberg continues Rick Davis as well as genies. A No. So Rick, what does the president need out of the vice president tonight? Well, I think he's going to continue some of the messaging that we've seen today. You know the great heroes of our nation or the men and women in the service and, ah, a salute to them. He's got a son in the service, so that's a very natural thing for the vice president to do. Out. On the other hand, he's also got a job to do, and that's going after Joe Biden. I mean, the typical and traditional role of vice president speech is to take a baseball back and swing wildly. So I think that's probably what we'll get the news out of tonight, but we'll wait and see what Vice President Pence does is support that Rick made earlier today. I don't typically think of Vice President. Pence's being an attack dog. We've seen that and vice presidents before. I don't know. Only associate that with Mike Pence is going to take a different attitude tonight. Yet. That's not the personality of Mike Pence that we know, but it's certainly the role that he's in, and I think one important thing to underscore. He's the chairman of the Corona virus task for us, and we haven't heard an awful lot about that. Last night. The first lady mentioned it. So be interesting to hear how he defends because, of course, that's where the president is trailing in the polls. People don't like how he's handled this And I think we're going to hear Mike Pence say that they've done a good job and that he has led that effort under the direction of the president could also be interesting, something we've been talking about whether he refers it all to Kenosha. And even now, the suspension of games in the N B, A and some and I'll be as well. Yeah, You've got to pay some attention. The front page of the newspaper on the day of your convention.

The regulator there on equity of some securities trading Fung seeing high talking about, you know, possibly letting us regulators take a look at At state owned enterprises. Do you see much like? No, This is just one issue. But do you see much light at the end of the tunnel for US, China? I don't know. It's to me that that giving a cold war and I just hope it's a little out of control. And I hope that cooler heads prevail. I think You might be right that maybe she's using offensive the election in the run up to the election of us, you probably have probably out more. See the regulator. And you know what? China South China Sea is just another one of those events which you know we could see morals. So I think I think you're gonna see an increase in pension and hopefully Getting cool for going into next year after the election. So is Theo.

So I would think that Move away from the play that precious Michael's offer a lot of opportunities golden favor ofthe great hedges again, we could hold against current TV basement in general, which is all over the world. So the weak dollar on a lot of people would target the Fed with that. I want to ask you kind of Ah, lofty question here. Do you think the Fed should be targeting asset prices rather than consumer prices in this next period? Almost reality. Yes, but they're also a conquered half of by remember has bought always finding leaky F self. Ah, junk bonds basically backstopping a large part of court death. This goes beyond the mandate that there was a case in the past. So I think there are targeting asset classes will not tell you this, but but in the wrong in the wrong way. What I'm suggesting is they would be doing the opposite. Then they'd be selling that stuff to bring the prices down. I suppose that's not the time right now. But it's something that maybe central banks would think about it over the next decade. But over the next decade, maybe, But you know, I would be happy attempts by central banks to vocalize policy 20,000 right, usually how they just couldn't do it. And the reason for that there's just too much. Is that like, uh, Imagine that you cannot have how you mean something away for trusting policy says happened. I think they will have to continue.

"Well. In the meantime, apparently Joe Biden's pulling lead is beginning to collapse. Rasmussen reports had Joe Biden up 10 points just a month and a half ago. Now he's ahead by one, according to Rasmussen. This is being reflected in some of the other state polling, which shows Joe Biden losing his lead in a wide variety of states. He's still leading But certainly not by as big a margin as he was just a little while ago in the real clear politics, national average he is up by an average of about seven points is below 50% again. He's ABI under 4% in the top battleground states. He's only up by 3.7 in Florida. The latest polls in Florida. Show by number by only three He's up by about 5.5 in Pennsylvania, but that is down pretty significantly. The latest poll from CNBC shows Biden of only three in Pennsylvania, which is margin of error. In Wisconsin. His lead is down to 3.5% Travel Guard group, which is a Republican pulling out that has trump up one. Now in Wisconsin, you can imagine that the chaos in Wisconsin and horrific Democratic response to it is going to drive a lot of suburban and rural voters into Trump's arms in Wisconsin. North Carolina is basically a statistical tie. In Arizona. Some new polling showing it that Trump is either within margin of error, or at least or maybe up is basically a statistical tie in Arizona. So what does that mean? It means there's a very close election and anybody who's claiming this is a blowout right now. Not not a lot of evidence that this thing is a blowout right now.

The move came on Wednesday morning, one day after China said the U. S. U two spy plane entered a no fly zone without permission. Apparently, this was intended as a warning to the United States. A source told the South China Morning Post, which is an official Chinese outlet. This is China's response to the potential risks brought by the increasingly frequent incoming U. S warplanes in military vessels in the South China Sea fan and tries to claim control over the South China Sea. Obviously, there are other countries that have an interest in the future of the South China Sea, ranging from South Korea. To Taiwan.

He's conceded that's not gonna happen. Until after the election from so so he he just that this is all of a sudden The Trump Administration, for better or worse, agree, disagree has seized on this as an issue and he is doing a full court press on it.

This week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared that China's territorial claims over the South China Sea are illegal. This is the latest fight between China, its neighbors and the US over who governs which parts of the water here is NPR's Emily Fang. The South China Sea is barely habitable, an expanse of water bounded by, among others. China, Vietnam, the Philippines in Taiwan, dotted with just a handful of tiny outcroppings. So why do these neighbors in the US cares so much about the sea? Here's China's view now had the South China Sea is a protective shield for the entire country's national security, is president of the National Institute for South China Sea Studies. It's a government research center based on the island province of Hainan, where China keeps a naval base to defend the South China Sea mail, not head on by a change in Without the sea, Heinen would be the front lines of any military aggression.

"Harassing Vietnamese ships ramming fisherman's vessels and sinking them and nothing is being done to try to resolve the situation there is a question and answer with you up on the Hoover Institution sites where a fellow and one of the questions as to what are China's ambitions I want to be specific here what are China's ambitions in the South China Sea is pushing into the Philippines and making claims against the Paracel and Spratly islands and claiming islands that are also claimed by Vietnam what is their vision as they reinforce well I think Beijing's vision is is now to follow the the plan that it has had to become the dominant power in the region and in the cities of the region I I think initially I mean you know this is all happened in terms of a historical moment fairly quickly Hey you know twenty years ago China could not enforce its claims it had a very limited navy and and it learned in the nineteen ninety six Taiwan Strait crisis that it had to build up its maritime and aerial power in order to insure that it could protect the waters that it considered its own and this is happened very quickly and so in the beginning I think there was simply a desire on the part of Beijing first of all to to grow your military capabilities and then to be able to to exert what we might call strategic space that would have freedom to move in areas that that it wanted to but it has it has more now of course with these political claims that it has been making that this is Chinese territory were simply taking over areas like the Scarborough shoal kicking out Philippines forces so that it has achieved the position essentially word is almost unchallenged throughout the South China Sea when you look at at the position it's taken in the Spratly islands group in the Paracel islands group the control obviously it has its own island hi non this create sort of an iron triangle which would make it very difficult very difficult for allied shipping or allied navies to get through the South China Sea if if Beijing decided to try to shut down those waters if you talk to the U. S. navy and you talk to Pacific Fleet they will show you how over the past twenty years John what we used to call the first island chain in the second island chain that that Beijing has essentially achieved its goal of of getting maintaining or org attaining first attaining and maintaining of numerical superiority and eventually operational superiority within these waters on the U. S. still sales in them the trump administration has been doing freedom of navigation operations essentially every month but that hasn't changed the facts on the ground the fact that China controls these territories built these islands militarize these islands turn them into bases so that it would be in the case of a war from one perspective the US could easily attack those those islands with with missiles and with from the air but China claims those as sovereign territory which means they would they would then react as though you were attacking Chinese territory they've been very methodical about this indie sensually what we have now is a balance of power in the South China Sea that has steadily shifted in China's behavior even though the United States is still able to project power in that region I'm speaking with Michael Aasen of the Hoover Institution his new book is Asia's new geopolitics essays on reshaping the Indo Pacific we're going from a what if war in the year twenty twenty five between the U.

"Back to the South China Sea I've been working a lot on this issue and I've been trying to push this idea of the critical nature of the South China Sea in the US China strategic competition at just militarily you've mentioned some of the problems associated with the United States being pushed farther out I think our conventions the turned against China get severely eroded when they can't hold China had read risk and it's difficult for us to protect countries in the region including many of our allies from Chinese coercion I look at this administration they they obviously have have recognized the challenge of the rise of China and have rightly articulated that we are in a strategic competition with China but for some reason the South China Sea hasn't been at the top of the agenda the last I checked president trump has never tweeted about it during his time as president and as far as I know is in terms of the public record it's never come up in discussions with Eugene paying as some curious you know why do you think this is a given how important it is and given that you very clearly outlined its importance in your book why do you think this has been an issue mainly among the leaves and scholars and hasn't risen to sort of the national leader level well of course at one level it's it is an issue with the American military and they are vividly aware of it on the other hand yeah but I think strategically what we've been doing is wrong are we were we as you know we rely on a model that our ships will go within twelve miles of the Chinese islands will routinely go through there and we have been organizing so that French and Canadian and Australian and British and other ships have also been going through there to maintain the rite of passage I think in the long run that's a dead loser because in in a conflict environment you wouldn't be able to maintain it and I've been arguing with by the way zero effect so we ought to do is take the Chinese model and say this is terrific the idea of building islands in international waters is great and build three islands to the west of the Chinese islands between them on the Chinese mainland of the then that we announced that they would go nuts and wear them in a position as head of the mark you're either going to demobilize these islands our internal international body or do something more we're gonna build three islands that interdict urinals for not gonna let you establish an effective dominance in the region and I think that the the the challenge here I'm guessing okay only Viv up front because I've been avoiding conversations with administration I know that a large number of people are aware of the South China Sea I think part of challenges there are so many components so what's going on you know do you worry about the stealing intellectual property do you worry about the degree to which they cheat against American companies to try to figure out how to offset the National Basketball Association model are do you worry about building a road I mean there are there's so many different components under way that I think it's been hard to get a coherent grand strategy and I really think the reason I wrote this book is to make the argument that we need to recognize this is not under this is not all of government this is all of society that's the real lesson of one way that we are in a competition where we need to think about all of Chinese society is a competitor only to think about how we're going over match that and that's going to take a fairly significant amount of time in in in the Cold War took us from nineteen forty six to nineteen fifty to finally think through what we were doing and I was with the generation that'd fought World War two and are used to thinking on a huge scale we are very few people in the current bureaucracy who are capable of doing that kind of thinking Newt Gingrich former house speaker speaking with oriental Mastro of E. II about his book trump forces check along those lines I recently was testifying on the hill and and one of my colleagues was has a fine with me mention of this this statistic about the difference between the Soviet Union and China know when something like you know the Soviet economy was half the size what time is economy is with respect to the United States but the United States is spending half as much on its military to deal with the challenge so it seems that you know we were in a better resource position perhaps vis a vis the Soviet Union and we are in the competition with China giving your own experience it in Congress and and in American politics what do you think are some of the changes that we need to make domestically to make sure that we do have the resources to compete with China well you know that's part of why I wrote that chapter that is in China's fall because a lot of what has to be done is not a is not China you know when you have six schools in Baltimore in which last year not a single student in six schools not a single student could pass the state maps and ran writing exam you have a crisis that would be there whether the Chinese existed or not and so we need very dramatic deep reforms in our own system we need to reform the Pentagon this is this is a tired bureaucratic structure no I try to remind people there was originally built in nineteen forty three so that twenty three thousand people using carbon paper and manual typewriters could manage a worldwide war now we have iPads smartphones etcetera we still have twenty three thousand people are you know is is is one article and of course it it shows everything down it makes everything too expensive all we've got so you have huge zones of reform so we need the Chinese currently are mopping up all sorts of international organizations why basically bribing countries and they're gonna end up either have either being the leader or having picked the leader for amazing range of international relations we are not even prepared to start thinking about a campaign on the scale and complexity there were gonna need in places like the food and agricultural organization for the World Health Organization just go down the list and it's astonishing how methodically successfully been so I think that the we're going to have to if we should have for serious and we are determined to over match the Chinese we're gonna have to really get our act together we have to go through some very painful and very profound reforms and part of the reason that I wrote a trump versus China was to set the stage for people to have this conversation and to recognize that everything the president's doing which I think is the right general direction is about ten percent of all we need to do if we're only going to be capable of competing with China well I'm happy either you specially wrote about the bureaucratic a nurse at the Pentagon I have in my own career have experienced that first hand and I made a number of suggestions but given that I'm a bit lower on the totem pole they have not been widely accepted but I would say that you know the United States military as you point out the South China Sea situation at the highest for to get fifty jet levels you know they get the threaten the United States military has understood this as as a challenge long before president trump articulated it publicly but the overall bureaucracy is still not focus on Asia I'll give you one addict that there is a professional military education in the airforce I was just re vamped to allow for study is the for regional studies once you get to feel great officer level and they include every region but Asia and this is the new revamped kidding I'm not kidding that just came out that they're putting on line now and so as a as it you just specialist I find it increasingly frustrating the amount of time that's painful it is painful and I'm out of time I spend the learning about key leadership engagements with tribal leaders than that well we're very relevant important to the conflict that the United States fun Afghanistan and Iraq are not going to be relevant for great power competition so I really do hope that some of these recommendations about you know how to influence just the bureaucracies of the lower levels not only of the military but of all aspects of the government of students are really taken into account because I think that is that is so amazingly important and when you talk about the threat to the United States you do mention the book do you think it's an existential threat no my own interpretation I kind of look at what time is too and I think they are challenging the United States in the global stage I think they are military threat to the United States in the region and besides maybe harassed scene a few US companies are you are Americans who are deeply engaged with China the average American does not feel the influence of China but in your book you talk about how you do think it is an existential threat so I was wondering if you could articulate a bit more about why you think that it is it is a deeper threat and potentially others have previously characterized it as well a guy I think is an existential threat in the sense and in two different ways the first is all if they work at it and were dumb enough they could create a coalition which would have a balance of power against us in a way that we have not experienced in American history because for much of the first hundred years we hid behind the Royal Navy and for the second hundred years with a huge worldwide alliance so we we we don't know what it's like to live in a world where there's a hostile dominant force that has a coalition is capable of over matching us that would be an existential threat from the outside but they're also threatened I think this this this problem with the National Basketball Association other problem with Winnie the Pooh of the problem with the the cartoon that is now banned from China because it had it had a show in which is used in paying was sort of ridicule they're beginning to move into defining issue service for the way the new Top Gun I think if I remember correctly they got Tom Cruise to take the Taiwanese and the Japanese flags off his of his flight suit and and just in order to release it and there's a fight underway right now we're changing those refusing to edit his movie to meet the needs of the Chinese censors of but it's that's the cell willingness not just to tell us what happens inside China but to start telling us what ought to happen over here and I think that's why it is a genuine existential threat Newt Gingrich on afterwards trump purses China if you buy oriented Mastro American enterprise institute I would just mention there's a great book by a you a professor you VA and coke is called I think Hollywood made in China that outlines the various ways that China uses its market to compel movies to take one plot line over over another plot line as a China specialist every time I watch a movie in which the Chinese come in as the heroes I know to look for who is financed that movie and that so that definitely does I think have a have a yeah I think you just gave me a future podcast trying to attract a guy down as he would like to spend some time talking about it I love movies and so this would combine two of my passions into one podcast and really a lot of fun I tell you she she she knows a lot about this topic and and I have found that her presentations on it a quite interesting now I myself as you know focus on the military issues and prospects of conflict between China and the United States and one of the things that I look at a lot of our allies and partners in the region so a lot of people would argue that this is a key strange for the United States right that we have partners like Australia and Japan that are supportive of US schools and that we're working together in our competition with China in terms of your recommendations what are some ways that you think we could re vamp the alliances or do more with the alliance is in this competition that goes I guess beyond the region to be a broader issues in terms of China's impact on our society is but also China's impact on the world well I think we have to look in a very serious way at what we're going to be doing to net people together in a more permanent basis for example in the South China Sea or we probably have a real interest to try to get India to join us because they have a huge interest the South China Sea I think has one third of all the world shipping go through so every maritime country and everything exporting country has a huge interest in the South China Sea we also have complex is I was just in Japan a couple weeks ago and the the enmity that still exists between Korea and Japan going back to the Japanese occupation of Korea from nineteen oh five to nineteen forty five that's still very real and it makes it harder to get them to work together in alliance because there's still so much friction perfectly on the green side also at some levels you gotta be constantly working opening goes up all I think in the case of of the Australians I think.

Now more than a decade, and it is taken US leaders of both parties, frankly, time to, to become aware of it, and they're just beginning to debate a strategy to respond and through the years, one thing that struck me is that again, the US officials of, of administrations of both parties persisted in something of a delusion about Russia and China. They want what we want that they want to be welcomed into a rules-based international. Order it cetera that if you welcome China into the WTO they will change for the better over time. If you welcome. Russia, new cooperation agreement with NATO they will change over time. When in reality, they have very different priorities, and they have very big ambitions. They will both. Want to return in their perception to their rightful place on the international stage, perhaps even surpassing the US that is certainly China's goal and to do that. They see as it being necessary to bring down the United States, it on multiple fronts, at the same time are Russia and China winning the shadow war, Jim show.

They have occupied new territory inflicted damage on US, and allied forces and acquired spoils of war often in the form of stolen national security secrets, Russia's still controls Crimea and large portions of eastern Ukraine, China's still controls.

They're fighting it, some of them frankly, are disappointed and demoralized that their leaders are not fighting it or providing the leadership, they feel they need to fight that war, and I'll tell you, I think that Americans are generally aware of some of these battlefields, but not all of them when I talked to folks and say that Russia and China deployed kamikaze satellites, and space kidnapper satellites at a satellite with a grappling arm that can grab US satellites out of orbit to disabled us, folks aren't aware of that. And I think that the other thing is that oftentimes people don't connect the dots between all these fronts and see that there's a consistent strategy here, and it's striking because Russia and China are two very different countries different histories cultures. You name it, but they have a similar strategy. The Russians call it the draw some draws doctrine named after a general. There who articulated, isn't an essay, a few years ago, the Chinese call it winning without fighting and part of the brilliance of it is that they make a judgment as to how far they can push the envelope while, not sparking a US military response. And they've been pretty good about judging that interfere in election. Invade Ukraine manufacturer territory in the South China Sea steel US trade secrets for decades. Jim, I want to stay on the on the Arctic for a second. I am impressed that they let you on to the submarine. I'm, I'm impressed that you convey the proximity in intimacy of that experiences. Well, in what our sailors, under the seas work with and work under, but I want to focus on the fact that it's not just the Russians have many more icebreakers, and we have under the sea, it's the Russians and the Chinese and a lot of this new war is being fought under the seat. Absolutely. And they don't teach Russia, led its surface navy fall to pieces after the collapse of the Soviet Union. They always kept their sub forces in pretty good shape. In recent years, they've deployed to entirely new classes of both ballistic missile sub and attack submarine, because they see this as a way that they could level the playing field at the US same with China. They're not going to manufacture twelve aircraft carriers in a day, but they've made enormous advances in diesel electric submarines that are very quiet. And, you know, I was thinking, you know, Holly, Hollywood see the future often years before we see it when you think hunt for Red October, it's not quite the Caterpillar dry, but they have quieter subs. And the reason to have that is so that you can show up off the US coastline with a nuclear deterrent without warning. And that's their plan now. The US is trying to stay ahead of that. They say they can still by large track these submarines but they're losing the advantage and the reason they're doing live fire exercises, which I was on under the Arctic on a US nuclear attacks of is because they want to stay sharp, but they will tell you when you speak to those commanders. They'll tell you directly if we don't stay ahead of the game. If we don't build subs, if we don't build more advanced subs. We're gonna lose that advantage for more of that. That discussion go to town on.
