Joining us out of -- -- the latest threats to this country general Jack -- retired four star army general.
Former army vice chief of staff also Fox News military analyst general good to have you here good division but let's begin if we may -- -- this new report on program.
That's -- highly specific.
Projection and estimates and ICBM.
Off for a ran by 2015.
So that must mean they've come a long way in a very court order.
And secondly the threat that it would reach United States.
As serious sort of glad I don't doubt -- -- assessment I'm not familiar with the details of the to be sure it's all classified.
But the fact is -- Iranians have one of the most aggressive offensive.
Wouldn't missile technology programs in the world they have right now short medium long range ballistic missiles.
That reach the gulf states reach Israel reach Southern Europe that's in their possession the next step is the one that your discussing.
And it's it's the logical step for them and that's to develop an Intercontinental.
Capable of reaching their number one strategic enemy in a world which they declared -- 1980.
The number one country that will keep them from dominating and controlling the Muslim countries of the world and that is the United States of America so the fact that there -- -- -- -- It's got to be real we've got to take to threaten her service part of what has happened.
Here is a change in the in the in the national dialogue.
And the administration's focus which had been.
Leading up to the summit.
In California who with president cherry China.
Had been about the cyber attacks that that China is -- Out against the United States.
Along comes -- Snowden.
They have the leaks the summit is literally blown out the front pages.
All across the world.
And suddenly it's about US surveillance.
What we continue at this point here -- -- As we move toward the middle of July.
And still there is very little public focus on the cyber attacks of China which continue unabated.
And there and the focus remains.
If you will US surveillance.
Hate it when are we going to see a shift here because surely the administration has the capacity.
To say we're going to restore.
Of the dialogue that we embarked upon a month ago.
Bulletin the administration -- -- -- defensive mode given what this issue a minute left it up to general Keith Alexander director.
But the national security agencies.
To be the spokesperson.
For the administration let -- these are really policy issues and he's an -- group policy.
And administration should be discussed in our policy and why it's important why it's necessary.
Why it's necessary and into people's interest is such -- reminding them in that dialogue.
On the threat to we have had from China which has been prolific.
An inch ordinary in terms of its reach inside this country.
We do not collect on China's technology we collect on intelligence from China that's of value to us.
They steal our technology base steal our intellectual property and they also are all overall financial industry in terms of what deals being made -- What acquisitions and mergers so they can best.
In those deals with advantage to them obviously.
I think one of the questions -- to be for the American people why is there's so little attention to what.
General Alexander himself has referred to.
He he phrased it as it -- being the greatest wealth transfer in history and he continues that we don't hear from the business roundtable we do not hear from the chamber of commerce we do not hear from the National Association of Manufacturers.
We do not hear from think tanks.
This is a peculiar silence.
It it and considering that we are confronting this massive transfer of our wealth to the Chinese that wish they are -- Well it is actually -- we've been discussed on this issue for ten years -- critical infrastructure -- military networks the government itself.
Utilities infrastructure -- financial and banking system.
And -- transportation system other than the military network.
Everything else is vulnerable.
To attack that stumble on them to.
The Chinese and what they're stealing from us is absolutely extraordinary military technology.
And huge intellectual property to benefit detonation.
I know for a fact there have been and have a commercial industry that developing in terms of aviation has -- look.
When it comes out as are some of their their fighter aircraft there it's -- precedent.
What to stealing from us and a regular basis and the frankly.
So Lieberman who led the effort to try to get some legislation.
Voluntary legislation to provide better protection for ourselves that failed I think were on a course Lou.
That we will have some kind of event here.
That'll be somewhat it's catastrophic -- terms of cyber attack.
That will lead us to the kind of legislation we have to impose on ourselves.
Provide the kind of protection and -- -- fire -- that we truly me.
General John King thanks for being there that's always good talking.
