127,000 armed along ukraine's for to the south and east. the founder and executive director of the national security institute, how serious is he? is this a ploy, can he handle or withstand these fights with face? >> i think there's a very real chance he comes across the border. 100,000 troops sent to the border he is prepared to go across if he needs to end the question becomes what is he things looking for matt and what this he thinks allies are going to respond economic sanctions president talk about and whatever else coming up we do if he does proceed, that will be a massive invasion or something he thinks he can get away with without triggering military defense against him.
>> what he might try to do he first came across right area and a area, he may come across in eastern provinces and nothing area which largely russian speaking population, he might claim here looking for independence and arguably you could say as a separate move going across ukraine. at the end of the day, he's going to see if i can't come across this far, can i go further and in his ideal world i think he wants to dominate if you can just like crimea. [two bells tolling] and 2014. arthel: all of this while the world watches, especially china. >> the chinese are watching carefully. xi jinping is watching every move vladimir putin takes and considering that as he is trying to decide whether to invade taiwan or not after the olympics. yet you the nation can invade
their neighbors taken over by conquest going to have consequences far beyond ukraine. arthel: beijing are like if they can do it, we can do it. let's go back to ukraine crisis, have we reached diplomatic status. >> antony blinken was there on the defense minister in ukraine this week, it doesn't look like we've made real progress. there is some discussion president biden might go speak to vladimir putin again to try to resolve this but we seen it before, we have probably guess, i think the challenge is putin doesn't see a reason to negotiate. he has to have a reason to come to the table find a path forward from he's thinking about nato and the like, the same time, it is not clear to anybody why he should negotiate with the u.s. at this time. arthel: did you say president biden mako negotiate with him or
would it be a phone call from a physical meeting our president would go there? >> i did saco but i probably overstated it's unclear this conversation about biden talking, it's not clear he would go there president biden has said he wants to resolve this if it takes going somewhere meeting on a neutral location, he may we can get to a good place for a victory, that will be the key question, can you make it happen? arthel: if president biden does go or meet somewhere in between here and there, it might be enough to satisfy ego thing i caused all of this buzz, they know that i am definitely a threat to them so look at me, i brought the president out of the oval office to talk to me.
i don't know, maybe it could work. >> i do think you are reading him right in the sense that he does have an ego part of what's going on is ability to hold power in russia that might be the key vote for president biden ghosts, it makes him look even weaker than we already look and that will be a huge problem particularly as you pointed out about china. arthel: you could be playing biden -like apartment. quickly before we go, what is about to happen here? if americans have not been tuning in to this crisis before, why should they pay attention at this time? >> i think the concern is vladimir putin coming across the border from they were lines for self and partner with these countries as we supported, if he can come across borders if you fat to worry about taiwan and other areas from we've not been able to look back with foreign policy, they haven't been
affected from what we do with the nation if we can't protect our allies? arthel: beijing is in the batter's box waiting to see what happens. it's always good to see you, thank you. >> thanks for having me. eric: will have market from in a moment but the deadly shooting in new york city, it's killed one young police officer in but another fighting for his life. pressure wrapping up on progressive politicians who have done everything from calling for police department not charging criminals crimes the victims of crime, who will hear from them next. ♪♪
