And Reagan administrations.
And worked rose and ended -- -- reflect eighteen.
Euro doctor Henry Kissinger.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think is a good -- I think -- -- do.
Because what the president -- and he gets consequences he gets its history was she wants is guys and curious this guy.
Hey Willis has -- Brennan's this guy's gonna have his national security team.
But that's thing that I think is important.
Is Sarah hey go for example here confirmed yesterday right so he's gonna have the big swearing in ceremony the big party.
Not a given away because it's going to be horrible job what is she got to do with he's gonna have defense -- 10% out of the defense budget austerity tomorrow.
He's got around about to get nuclear weapons North Korea's testing nuclear weapons serious about to come -- -- the Chinese are hacking every computer in America.
It's a bad job ahead for now models explaining to -- -- -- in this current burning while level -- young well army and it's very durables.
That probably -- -- where Gordon yeah I think there's several however camp.
Yes and the reason is a bigger problem and it -- it was with Libya.
Is because with Libya we ever to Qaddafi but we never got her hands on his weapons.
And all the weapons of Qaddafi is Libyan arsenal are what are fueling all the violence.
In North Africa and the Middle East in Syria.
And in Syria if we fail to get our hands on chemical weapons.
Before a sound falls are we secured ever make sure that they don't fond of the hands of the bad guys.
Then whatever problems we have now are going to be amplified greatly if their chemical weapons floating around Natalie it's natural -- bought North Korea's.
You can hear about a -- immediate there -- -- allegedly going to be.
The dictator generally generally -- awful one million she'll starve your people and yeah most of us so.
-- Out of any for -- nation right they don't do what they aren't doing anything the world wanted -- -- thing the world wants or make anything the world wants.
What are they they're playing on the big screen.
Stage because they've got their nuclear weapons and I think that.
For -- -- north helping our three is gonna wake up tomorrow nukes San Francisco I think that there are likely go to sell their staff.
To -- run and that's the bigger problem and around looks at North Korea.
And says nobody to stop North Korea that its -- country nobody's gonna stop us.
So I think that they are convinced that they're gonna have nuclear weapons sooner than -- What is the long term solution to solve -- the problem of the around.
-- I think if the United States would do three things one buy some time with some cyber summer cyber attacks on Iran.
And secondly design well.
There were some -- the -- virus there's now something called the flame virus.
-- we have infected -- -- computer's -- so that area it's a complicated thing but they're not enriching uranium the way they thought they were.
And that bought a couple of years time before around gets nukes.
I think the best immunized is figuring out a presidential -- the Canadian prime minister and say that Keystone Pipeline rebelled and it tomorrow we're so thankful for a and then the president should develop US energy resources -- natural gas.
And -- 5710 years -- energy independent.
Who problems of the Middle East and and it's the same time in China which is desperate for energy.
-- to be really nice to us because I want access to energy.
Vote -- and nuclear weapon at all Campbell.
Now -- -- those first published in Israel yeah and and again I'm not so sure Iran uses -- as much as uses the power of the nuclear weapons gives them.
If Iran has nuclear weapons they know the whole world changes they've got their hands.
On the -- world's oil choke point.
And they've got -- the dominant power in the Middle East in the Persian gulf and I think it spurs and nuclear arms race Saudi Arabia want nukes.
Egypt of want nukes United Arab Emirates Turkey are probably one exit got the most dangerous part of the world.
We're governments topple right laughed and their nuclear weapons in the mix I think it's not the world we want to be him.
Memory we're gonna have this conversation.
Forgot about those symptoms usually just in thirty years ago -- I -- probably.
Already evident -- -- -- never changed them.
And that whole part of the world should go back to the book of Genesis they've been fighting each other for 3000 years.
That's -- the United States can find a way to not need that part of the world.
All the better protect our friend Israel but we don't belong in the middle of their civil war's coming to us economy to a question.
On digression dramatically here.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now I don't think you mean motivated by a you're making money because of go to war -- -- oversight as -- Halliburton -- now I don't quite I think you know.
Funny outside it may look like people are trying to be profiteers I think at that planet and I knew and when he was in the Nixon administration -- thinking is honorable motors and I think this is all about enriching Dick Cheney personally.
They permit a lot of mistakes they made a lot of mistakes.
And the biggest one was mission creep we got into Afghanistan.
Instead of killing -- -- and leaving.
We stuck around trying to build a nation same thing with Iraq and when there were no weapons of mass destruction we should've said six some left.
I was just like your blood -- him -- bargain.
All occurred fibers extra firm obscure from -- and a flight from Vietnam but are -- to their way to sum to total interest Dick -- You know somebody else is just a giant.

She -- thinks that women should be in combat and and when are ready in combat in north certainly -- -- Frontline to battle anymore you can be.
It's not like World War I -- World War II were the guys at the front line with a -- taking fire and the people way behind -- now everything is a Frontline.
And she set and I agree with her.
That you don't lower the standards for women and the physical standards he say if a woman is capable of meeting those standards sure go for.
And I think the other two things I would say it's modern warfare.
