can't and we were talking about that who's going to deal with india. the nations and especially china, which purchase such a large amount that continue to purchase iranian oil, if we could get them to do more to scale back their energy purchases, i think it would take the sanctions regime, which are having an effect, and make them even more effective and hopefully help us. we have a meeting in early july and i think senator reid pulled it together with the number two leader of the chinese government and i asked him this question. you've reduced your oil purchases from iran for a variety of reasons, including to help the sanctions. could you reduce them dramatically further and then say, but if you give up your nuclear program, we're going buy a lot more from you, so have a stick, but then have a carrot, and could india do the same thing, dramatically reduce oil purchases, but with a carrot down the road, or japan could do the same thing, and the response to the chinese official was very adroit and very quick. he said he would be very willing to consider cutting our purchases from iran

were trying to keep on board, the russians, the french, china. even the sort of left wing chatterati would have much preferred sanctions and containment to invasion. >> absolutely. if you analyze it, they got watered down. my point to you is simple. if you hadn't taken out saddam, there still would have been consequences. what they are, we don't know. i could say, it would have been a threat. competing with iran. someone else might say, well, he would have been contained. we don't know. but my view was, in the circumstances after 9/11, you had to send such a strong signal out. on this issue. and incidentally, don't ignore what happened. libya gave up the wmd program. iran went back into talks. at the time, after 2003. north korea rejoined the six-party talks. there was a lot that happened. i personally felt, and i still feel, the single biggest threat we face is the prospect of the terrorist groups acquiring a nuclear chemical biological capability. >> although many would say that is the worst case scenario and there is speculation because there's no evidence to support it. >> here's

has been unwilling to use that leverage to persuade pyongyang to change course. while china may have expressed its displeasure with the north's recent missile launch, the fact remains that beijing serves as pyongyang's economic lifeline, sending food and fuel to prop up the north korean regime and luxury goods to satisfy the north korean elite. china continues to play this role because beijing fears a flood of refugees from an unstable north korea more than a nuclear north korea armed with ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. my guess is that beijing also likes having a buffer between itself and south korea, a strong u.s. ally. by enabling the north korean regime is aggressive and reckless behavior, which threatens regional stability, china in up undermining its own security calculus. just what kind of regime is south korea backing? life under the youngkim is as bleak as ever, with the average person enjoying no real religious our personal freedoms. hundreds of thousands of political prisoners remain in prison in gulags. others endeavour to skate by any means possible, even if it

." interest payments alone we are enabling china to buy two jetfighters per week. is it not our public duty to respond to this kind of mourning with the same alarm and resolve that would be summoned to defeat any other threat to our nation? finally, our debt threatens our children's futures. spending has grown from its historical norm of 20% to 24% and it can grow to 40% and beyond. to finance borrowing interest payments alone would crush our economy. if financed through taxing, it would more than double the tax burden never dreamed of by the american people and businesses which employ them. should we let this happen, i fear we would be the first generation in american history to leave the next generation with less freedom your opportunities, and a lower standard of living. i will not sit idly by and watch the american dream disapprove -- disappear for my daughter and son. i believe that is a sentiment shared by all of my colleagues. what exactly is driving our debt? president obama has said, "the major driver of our long term liabilities, everybody knows it, is medicare, medicaid, and

face another challenge in a rising china. china is attendant to the interests of its government but it too often disregards the rights of its people. it's selective in the freedoms it allows, and as with its one child policy, it can be ruthless in crushing the freedoms it denies. in conducting trade with america, it permits flagrant patent and copyright violations, forestalls american businesses from competing in its market and manipulates its currency to obtain unfair advantage. it's in our mutual interest, of course, for china to be a partner for a stable and secure world, and we welcome its participation in trade. but the cheating must finally be brought to a stop. the president hasn't done it and won't do it, and i will.

many critical issues. russia, china, and iran continue to support via sought dictatorship. they have sent arms, the plight revolutionary guards, advising and assisting the security forces in repressing them a. in repressing the iran's green movement home in 2009, although i think we have not heard the last of the grain movement. the bottom line is that the obama administration must abandon wishful thinking about the nature of that regime, the effectiveness of the united nations and the supposed benefits with russia. if this is to successfully address was going on inside syria. the timid syria policy is especially grating when compared to its policy on egypt. there, the administration pressed for mubarak to resign in a matter of weeks despite the fact it was a longtime ally. it took five months to issue similar calls for the resignation of assad. the country gained a reputation for quickly abandoning its friends while courting its enemies. i think we will find it has more enemies and less friends. this is likely to be one of the lasting legacies of the obama administration in the

back, you want to leave it in china or brazil or germany, you can -- there is no additional tax to leave it there. we have more than $1 trillion overseas. when you talk to the corporate guys who have been trying to get obama for the last 3 1/2 years to go to territoriality or allow repatriation of that money without a big tax hit, some say it is between $500 billion and $800 billion that would come back in the same year. it does not cost anybody anything. we just have to get rid of our worldwide tax system. the reason anheuser-busch was bought by a european company, it is more valuable if it is owned by a european company than an american company because of the way we tax earnings and other countries do not. if we did not fix this, other companies will start being bought more and more by foreign companies. the economics just makes sense. we can fix that by taking our rates down 25%. and by going to a territorial tax system. i think these are extremely important. another challenge that europe has is the defined-benefit government pensions, the social- welfare pensions, the unionized
