6:48 am
the us really did seem teaching from the mideast the rest of the world is turning in his own back. well i can give you a while we were doubts her and that would be no but let me elaborate a little bit ott. i wouldn't panic about this word god. we balanced the initial expression pivot with his secretary of sick leave. two years ago in the way it was unfortunate because it implied that some of the us was turning its back. mom returned looking at this together. i like to think of this morn so we have a portfolio of its national interests. and depending on. immediate crises that and we've had two wars that were going on simultaneously for another decade. on one has come to him and the other is of the winding down it's time to people and our presence in that camp stamp sets being withdrawn. and it really opened thirty years and perhaps even a little bit longer than that. the united states with china's opening the market and so forth. we
6:49 am
have been investing. not only in terms of economics but in terms of our military alliances in asia pacific. so with the paddle of continuity in the region. i'm now all of me hopefully are able to read part because the stability and less than an immediate threat to your door within your. we can use some resources in some attention of course the asia pacific region. but certainly we are in temuka out of very deep vital national security interests in the future of the middle east and even parts of north african americans' attitudes themselves has really shifted and changed tom he was a recent poll that showed i think the sixty five percent of americans said they do not want any american military intervention in the mid east and west the us is directly threatened. that was not the kc thirty years ago when you're institute was set up this is true and i think to be on this but we have underestimated the united states is that the amount of more picky. art which is
6:50 am
reflected in parts but all of our congress. a little bit of both parties. maybe the ship has been more obvious the republican party. some republicans criticize that as well. i would say that from iraq was a searing experience for the us and for many in congress and to tell you the truth i think the defense community as well and regardless of one's experiences or one's opinions about beginning of the war the suitability or reliability of intelligence the real reasons for going to war. the key seth all of that kind of a sign that i've realized is difficult to do it's very hard to argue with that now ten years later after spending over a trillion dollars to two more schooling in iraq and afghanistan is entitled thousands of clients on it and that i don't think the american for the country it is becoming isolationist and i think it's more a
6:51 am
period of strategic routes where people want to say mum to ask hard questions what this really the immediate relevance and with this the endgame of getting in the fall in in some foreign conflicts. top us official said recently that the us just a nice day and age twenty first century cannot afford to consume twenty four seven by one week and it's that simple. even as to rethink a war to syria is upon us looking at the end to the days he not saying it's terrific. it's tragic. it's just not worth our intervention. well i'm loving it the myth of the present i don't know exactly what he's thinking. my best guess is that looking at syria. where on the situation simply there is no easy solution. our expert on syria at the institute where i work for now that even among the moderate opposition say that non extremist fundamentalist opposition this big deficient in terms of leadership little bit in
6:52 am
terms of strategy. it's very interesting. back in september. um. shortly after the deal was reached. that seems to be working will see on chemical weapons in syria two former secretaries of defense of president obama so un secretary gates and secretary commander in a forum. criticize the president. to whom really they were very loyal for his decision to seek congressional authority for a strike on syria. very useful but with people some people didn't know this was a pale ghost gentleman also disagreed on whether or not the presents for the board that the strikes came to secretary gates said no haven't we learned anything from interventions in iraq and afghanistan and secretary former sector could never said that when she said the red line than you do have to have to act on it. is there a little bit. and if you do if you tell in us
6:53 am
foreign policy people on the one hand expect us to be there to take that stance was no one else is there in a vacuum then on the other hand aq suited being brash imperialistic and trying to be the global cop when it dies. yes unfortunately in my experience that is i think of in government for thirty three years now. this is new phenomenon but the tree get that from time to time. and up. that was my sense of dread reading. former secretary gates' comments on syria. and he's also actually been the voice of caution with regard to the military interventions in iran as well as he was the bench namibia it's odd to say yes the right answer but it's a very serious question about what is in the state for the united states and will we by getting into. directly involved in the civil war will we. but the report were not assume ownership of that situation. let's talk about a little bit better and you lot
6:54 am
in the news lately the whole posse this rapprochement then out that the temporary deal to the atl has drawn a lot of criticism some corners and nowhere more so perhaps in from saudi arabian israel they see this is the us going all soft. you expect a lot of backlash from these countries. i don't know but it's a personal opinion and otago is all soft on this for years we've been trying europeans and tried on their own course to visit the eu three as they recall the united states can support the doubt but that the distance that we joined the discussions. negotiations negotiation and negotiation you can't expect to have a result. if both sides are looking at some kind of give the concession. you can color the concession you can call of flexibility but after all this is an interim agreement. i think the president and others have made clear that you don't take anything on face value but the rains. they have a history not only in terms of
6:55 am
up their nuclear program in terms of support for terrorism to put in the region. so it once again this is something to snow here yes no answer i would think that any american president that he and republican or democrat. we have an obligation which both political and actually a moral obligation to seek to be sold or to ameliorate situations like this by diplomacy. not simply to shoot first and ask questions later and amy at. you can perhaps make the argument is well that if he were to succeed in its iran policy. i miss swear to you i yelped a lasting agreement with his hand to give it to a show we we speak about a lot when the word iran anymore i'm sorry about that right i ate i don't think. i don't think the situation involving the nuclear programs of iran and wants to know what's in this a broader pattern of iranian behavior that has been of concern the moment the united states but to our
6:56 am
allies in the region. i don't think that that's all you single agreement. so that in and of itself wouldn't be a revolutionary freeing up with was the end was guilty of preoccupation in foreign policy in the little time we have laughed. the speed of twenty chapman on how quickly as china rising how much a threat as it goes is it gonna be some clashing new superpowers in this new asia pacific region are we making too much of it. first of all i come from a background in government to clean it when i was at the pentagon that being very concerned about the cold war i mean of this product called for the situation we have with china is a very different relationship than we have the soviet union in terms of this type of economic cultural political decay exchanges korea. there's been a consistent in american policy. at least i think through the bush administration could use with menstruation. it was to try to help encourage china to become or what we call a responsible stakeholder in the international system. to
6:57 am
come into the international community to observe the rules of the world in terms of trade complex with property and so forth. at the same time. it's been coupled with a hedging strategy. because we see that china has increased its military investment the military capabilities has acted in the circuit ways. on the east china sea in the south china sea that affect our allies but we have alliance commitment under review and notably yes and so we have to work on both planes. but hopefully be worked on a military plane which includes military diplomacy in the way not to aggravate tensions of into force in the overall political and economic relations that we share very much the same interests with your disregard for the initial attack believe that their research fellow at the institute for national strategic studies based in washington a year in europe right now and i thank you for joining me today i'm obviously really it's a tricky balancing act but as he said the key is that it's a rebalancing. and it's not
6:58 am
actually the end of american dominance it is perhaps a change in the paradigm that we can use to. thanks very much for being here and thank some people watching the appeal on costs like that. hohns. falsely that keeps you up to date with all the latest from the world of sport. all the action although the song is called the emotion. the school i do
