Interview Highlights

– “There has been a lot of attention on the Iran nuclear weapon issue, but people should remember that North Korea has detonated there nuclear devices, we know they’re a nuclear power.”

– “{China} has real weaknesses in the economy…I think a lot of their statistics are just made up, and I think the collapse in the stock market is an indication of that.”

– “Asia is going to be increasingly important for America, for our economy, for our political and military well-being as well…this is a huge area where the United States has an enormous interest. We have friends like Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore that feel threatened by a rising China. We need to have a debate about how to deal with this, why we need a strong American presence…I hope the candidates take it up as time goes on.”
