Now Fox -- national security analyst KT McFarland who sell national security posts under presidents Nixon Ford and Reagan former US ambassador to the United Nations Fox News contributor.
John -- -- ambassador let's turn to you first of all I -- the NATO meeting.
There is there it is -- -- in an orderly.
Organized withdrawal from from Afghanistan -- dot.
Well that's that's part of his narrative you know the war on terror is over -- -- has been defeated Taliban can be negotiated with.
I think this almost surely means the loss of everything we've sacrificed this since we overthrew Taliban after 9/11 you know they have -- saying.
About the United States they say you have the watches we have the time they're just waiting for this withdrawal take place and I'll be back and now.
What are the what are the risk and what the president has chosen to do the other NATO nations have chosen to do here.
As far as civil war -- the minute -- our I was in Afghanistan last year and that was some senior Afghan leaders and said you know the rest just getting tired of this.
We've spent ten years we've lost countless lives in to pressure we're out of here and it's short period of time and one man said to me if you we will all -- -- And so I think that it's very likely really.
I hope we don't have to shoot our way out that there will be a civil war -- multi party source of Taliban comes back.
The northern alliance tribes per rainy and -- MM a Karzai government contractor ten years remains corrupt and incompetent and incapable organized and.
I've you know one of the numbers that here -- I'm surprised that we have research very carefully.
Of the number of people killed in Afghanistan over the course of the -- pictures.
And in Mexico are over 50000 people have been killed in the drug cartel -- We have a problem in this country and focus -- political -- -- organizing our our thinking geo political.
More than twice the number of people been killed by the drug cartels.
As in the war in Afghanistan past.
When we think of the blood and the treasure.
2000 of our troops killed there.
Are the geo political cost and the loss that will be represented when those troops leave.
It we have a horrifying war going on just beyond our border to the side.
Is there anyone in the establishment.
In the foreign policy establishment of this country.
Capable of looking at the obvious and -- in the question why are we pursuing.
-- -- Well in the case of Mexico you know secretary of state Clinton said correctly last year.
That the situation in Mexico reminded her of Columbia at 125 years ago when the drug cartels were about take over that country obviously it's.
Much more serious in Mexico right now.
Action of what's happened three days three days after she said that President Obama said expressly.
That Mexico did not remind him of Columbia 225 years ago so that's that's where the problems.
I was -- with the twenty years we should especially take our troops out of Europe and put them on the Mexican border.
The problem is that not only an economic -- should talk about the blood and treasure.
It's the idea that if there is a route where you can get illegal immigrants.
And drugs across that border it's not much a distraction thank you can get terrorists and weapons of mass destruction.
Only seems to me abject fools would have to be convinced of the necessity to enforce one sovereign border.
Is there something I'm missing here.
Yeah because the only other Paulson don't want to enforce a sovereign -- -- the people who don't think you have to really worry about.
Deflating in inflating currency.
The administration thinks the real problem in Mexico is lax US gun control laws.
That it's the ability to purchase guns and -- -- the Mexico's if Mexicans don't have their own supply from corrupt police and military officials.
In Baghdad of -- places and talks on.
Nuclear weapons and nuclear policy.
Do you expect anything to happen of consequence.
Note I -- -- talk talk talk.
The administration will probably say is happy talk talk talk and the Iranians we'll continue.
To build their nuclear weapons program.
If you are Israel watching the president the United States today.
Declare that our troops are leaving Afghanistan that'll mean that we will have defaulted and any will likely.
What will be the impact on on Israel.
Given our absence of force effectively in -- in the region that is South Asia ultimately.
Well I think it will convince them that if anybody's gonna protect their interest is gonna have to be damn I'm I'm actually more pessimistic -- -- the I think the administration so eager to get a deal.
So that they can announce progress with the Ron.
And I'm very afraid they're gonna give away the store and a number of respects that just so they can say Israel see we're making progress don't do anything military.
We have pumped thirty -- is this your remedial.
That is if governor Romney were to be elected president states could he set it right in the time.
That would be required time is very sure very sure.
But I think he would be determined to -- certainly -- that one of this apparently absolute points he's made you elect -- president Ron doesn't have nuclear -- to elect.
A -- are present Iran's nuclear.
If you think you very much.
