president clinton's example. we should refuse to give russia and china beach power over our actions and instead work to shape a coalition of willing states with a legitimate mandate to intervene militarily in syria. many of our allies are willing to do much more. as one regional official told "the wall street journal" last weekend, they are looking for, quote, the ironclad backing of the u.s. and others. we should provide it for them. we should make u.s. air power available. along with that of our allies, as part of an international area to defend safe areas in syria and to keep assad's forces from harassing them, as they will do. these will become platforms for increased deliveries of food, medicine, doctors to treat the wounded, and other nonlethal assistance. it can also serve as staging areas for armed groups to receive battlefield intelligence, body armor, and weapons, including antitank weapons, and to train and organize themselves more effectively, perhaps with foreign assistance. the goal would be to expand the reach of the safe havens across more of the country. as a final part

russia and china's persistent stonewalling of the security council. and congress has certainly had our fair share of missed opportunities. last congress, the house passed the iran, north korea, syria action. but no action was taken on it. had the united states taken on a more pro-active role in syria by instituting strict sanctions against assad's regime, it may have changed his calculations on using chemical weapons. the president must clearly identify what our national security interests are to keep from further escalating that situation. what does target airstrikes look like? what does degradation look like? and what will we do if it does not yield the intended result? one senate resolution ground troops for combat operations. this sounds like it leaves the open possibility of butz on the ground for other things like a special operations. is this intentional? will you confirm that under no circumstances will we place butz on the ground in syria? even a limited engagement, if it ends up being the only limited, could cost taxpayers billions appeared with the members of the arab league

attitude that would undoubtedly be taken by russia and possibly also by china. the language that has been used so far has been about destruction, but i am not sure that it is possible to destroy an ideology. i am not sure that it is possible to destroy a cult of the kind that now exercises such malign influence. one thing that we most certainly can do is to adopt a policy of containment and deterrence. to do that, we have to degrade its military capability and create circumstances in which any return to barbarism will be met by swift and effective action. i think we would do best to agree that we are not likely to embark on a successful process of destruction, but that we can have an effective doctrine of deterrence and containment. there is no parallel between today's debate and the debate on iraq in 2003, but there is a parallel with kosovo. when kosovo was an issue, with considerations similar to those that we are discussing -- not least ethnic cleansing -- the international community was able to deal with the situation without a resolution. a lot has been said about the long term, but

framework. your second point about china, and i will make this point real quick, pedro. china has unilaterally declared an air defense identification zone over the east china sea. part of that extends over the sun -- part of that extends over the senkaku islands, which china and the ban -- and japan are debating over who owns it. i was in japan a couple of weeks ago. i got to meet with folks from the government and the japanese parliament, as well as going to okinawa and visit some of the military facilities out there. the u.s. is positioned on these senkaku islands, and they fall under the u.s.-japan treaty because japan has demonstrated control over the senkaku islands. -- has administrative control over the senkaku islands. withchina is trying to do the air defense identification zone is to argue that japan has administrative control over the airspace and those islands. on the one hand, president obama ordered the military to fly b-52 bombers, they were arty planning -- already planning to go through there, but he went through with it to signify that they do not recognize it. i

-- challenges. with china would propose a and thaton stability has not happened. so far. a very important point to make as an opening point is because it is sensitive in the u.s.- japan relationship and in every single relationship with the allies as it is domestically in the united states. the point is if we are cutting all of this emphasis on extended deterrence and strategic stability with major powers thomas how can we and our nuclear policy how can we also proliferation and take practical steps toward long-term goal of disarmament? in the case of east asia, the answer is fairly simple. if we the united states were to fail in the project of ensuring our allies and determine north korea this surely there will be no proliferation pressures. there would not be further progress. it will be steps away from disarmament. similarly if or to fail at the ,roject of stability with china we are not going to have china sooner later joining in the reductions process and greater stability and the u.s.-china relationship and greater cooperation and disarmament but something in the other dir

policy -- any significant change in their policy. china's recent declaration of an air defense identification zone overlaps with the south adiz and includes the airspace over the islands and failed to follow international norms and increases miscalculations. i look forward to the testimony of our witness as to how we can appropriately respond to these actions. a growingained campaign to penetrate our computer networks both for military purposes and to steal intellectual property for commercial purposes and poses a threat to our security in relationship. the cyber threat is not unique to china. russia also possesses formidable cyber capabilities. china poses a unique threat because of the, nation of sophisticated cyber capabilities and a lack of restraint and respect for limits on the theft of american technology. a large number of colleagues have said that the espionage campaign is an intolerable threat to our long-term national economic prosperity and security. we look forward to our witnesses. >> agree with the comments you made. concerned about our national security. trip to
