chinese name, cisco has been known to help china build its firewalls. and have you thought about changing her name to something else? >> to the first part of the question, i think that the balance of the challenge that we have faced because we have a heritage in china, it is stunning to me at times to explain to someone that it's a 35 billion-dollar company and trusted globally and up to $35 billion, one third of all the huawei gear comes from american suppliers, at like $7 billion worth of procurement last year and is stunning to many. but people cannot grasp that. so yes, a great deal of this is a fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to be an international company with this heritage. if you read the senate report and so forth. it has links to the chinese military and where the founders of the company have talked. >> that's hogwash. and you know, i thought that that might come up, and i thought about bringing in something about this tall, a 20 page report, with every bit of information, but i didn't want us to be distracted. and no, it is a fundamental part of the asia

rose and prospered. and now, today, india and china rise and prosper. all this has been welcomed by the united states. but none of this was a foregone conclusion when you consider where asia was at the end of world war ii. while the asian political and economic miracle was realized, first and foremost, by the hard work and talent of the asian people themselves, it was enabled by the enduring principles that the united states has stood for in the region, and also by american military power. these principles we stood for have included a commitment to free and open commerce, a just international order that emphasizes rights and responsibilities of nations and fidelity to the rule of law, civilian control of the military, open access, by all, to the shared domains of sea, air, space, and now, cyberspace, and the principle of resolving conflict without the use of force. in addition to these principles, it was also enabled by the pivotal role of u. s. military power and presence in the region. we believe that our strong security presence in the asia- pacific has provided a critical foundation

that's a complicated world. when you go into that china shop you got to be careful when you throw your weight around. 40 years later vietnam still recalls for me the ultimate purpose of diplomacy, and that's what we're looking at this week at chautauqua. can we work amicably with other countries, with other religions, with other people? what's the best way to avoid the war and conflict that we've seen in our country over the last 10 years? are we capable of meeting the biblical challenge? and it's an important one for all of us, no matter what our faith is, to reflect upon, can we deliver peace among the nations? because that's our job, all of us who live here on earth. and we know in our hearts that it may never be possible. as the ancient greeks put it, it may never be possible, they said, to tame the savageness of man. but we know that we have to try. and our path can be illuminated by a phrase robert kennedy used in his brief and tragic run for the presidency in 1968. he said that one of the purposes of our country must be -- and these are tennyson's words, the british poet, alfred
