chance to catch up to the rest of the world. china, india, japan, other countries are using american-designed technologies. the united states is missing a moment n until we begin to do something. since 9/11, we import more oil than we did before 9/11. it's insulting to common sense. we need to pass a comprehensive policy that prices carbon and moves america to the future so we can get into the marketplace. we'll have better health, better national security. increased ability to provide our own national energy policy. and we will create millions of jobs. >> senator cornyn, your response? >> there are parts of the bill that senator kerry and lieberman have introduced that i think are positive steps. the acknowledgment that we can't completely cut ourselves off from domestic sources of oil and gas. we need to explore nuclear power. where i disagree is that we need to tax the american consumer and the american business at a time when with an energy tax, a new energy tax, when unemployment is at 10%. if we do that, we'll kill a lot of jobs that currently exist. together with the moratoriu

. russia and china agreed. this is what israel wanted. this is what saudi arabia wanted. if we're going to have a negotiation about regional issues some of our regional partners want to be in that discussion. real quick what it does do is, it is a gateway to those discussions. the biggest difference you had opens the way to conversations about these other issues, areas where you have overlapping strategic objectives. they both have an interest in stabilizing the region, and interest in stopping the war in syria. can you get to those conversations? we don't no. if you did not solve the issue was no possibility of even entering the room. >> one thing, you come to the hill and breathe the air and start filibustering. [laughter] i don't mean to do that. a that. a very important point. the argument that we cannot enter into this agreement because they are causing trouble, sponsoring hezbollah and sponsoring us on and causing both to me is illogical. you have to flip that argument on its head because to the extent we can take the nuclear issue and while it off, put it out, were in a better posit

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

foreign developments you discussed and what you are concerned about? --assume it might be tied china, are you concerned about the chinese economy slowing, the markets there? do you have concerns about the european economy? related to stop markets can i ask you feel how -- how you feel about u.s. equity markets, because you spoke about the inmate and you saw that they were generally quite high. now equity prices have pulled back. chair yellen: with respect to global developments, we reviewed developments in all important areas before, but we have focused particularly on china and emerging markets. expected thatg most -- as most analysts have, we have expected to see the chinese rebalance their economy. and iave planned that, don't think there are more surprises there. the question is whether there might be a risk of a more abrupt slowdown than most analysts expect. i think there were concerns the deftness with which policy makers are addressing those concerns. in addition, we saw a very substantial downward pressure on oil markets. those developments have had a significant impact on e

emerged is extremely unlikely. china has not been a party to any of these bilateral cold war agreements. that is the dark shadow on this paper. we talk about the u.s. russia relationship. china is out there. china is a threat to both parties. that is going to have a nuclear deterrent. there is no question about it in the nuclear context. >> this is political talk already. the upturn the -- the opportunistic point is that neither russia nor america's feeling from danger -- feeling of danger from china is objective in nature. the cases are very subjective and not by the objective threat of china but by how we perceive china. that makes the situation looks better. >> in terms of funny stories, when we started writing this paper we were hammered for being too pessimistic. increasingly we are hammered for being too optimistic about the nature of the relationship. even if trust is nonexistent. the myra memories conversations. what i still don't quite understand is if it was possible to achieve another arms-control agreement between russia and the united states, if we were able to o

of those tools, no matter what china and india looks like, we are still very strong and people look to us as a place to invest and to get investment from. those tools are underutilized in the middle east. that is a big -- combine and delete -- interlinked for reform. to the broader point after 30 years of the u.s. investing so much and the terms of security footprint, glad we did that. it is still seen incomplete. the region still fraught with problems. we build alliances that were not economically or politically sustainable. that is the thing. it seems like an academic case. after the last decade of engagement, the pessimism among democrats and republicans, educating them if we cannot have the money for a marshall plan. what i fear is nobody cares. i fear elliott and i and lee, who get paid to write this, we are a smaller community in terms of who was paying smaller attention. we've squandered that a bit after 9/11. i hope you get it back. our leadership could be important. >> i am going to ask the final question and you can both give an answer. 4 minutes left. we talked about how

involved, and so is hezbollah, russia, and china. the will of syria is being blocked by many international interest. it exposed a lot of the rule of law internationally. we do not live in a global community people being taken accountable. i understand the concerns with interest in justice. i am afraid that they lost their moral compass. they are seeing a society where women and children are being brutalized. there are concerns about globalization. they have turned a blind eye to the suffering of people. it is sad for me to see any individual and group and organization. they want to make a point against imperialism. >> thank you. >> my name is julia. i am syrian. i just finish my master's in international affairs. i find it difficult to picture what the future is for syria other than who will be replacing who. what is the future of syria? my concern is how to communicate your vision. i am glad to hear this discussion in d.c. speaking for my family and relatives, i do not think the people know what it is, basically. i think this is very important for the majority of people to k

this was not occurring, we do not have the money. who must borrow the money from china to send it to pakistan. aerican soldiers spent decade to liberate iraq, and taxpayers paid 470 million dollars in aid, the president of open doors describe what is going on there as religious side. before the toppling of hussein, a city of iraq was home to 75,000 christians. now the numbers have dropped to 25,000. christian homes are set on fire and bombs are placed on cars and christian families are receiving threatening letters, to leave iraq or be kidnapped and killed. american soldiers have risked their lives for the sake of the country's liberation. our young men and women have fought for a noble cause but the unintended consequences is under fit -- unforgivable. no amount of money will make them our true allies. they are not allies of israel and i fear one day, your money, our money, will be used against israel. it makes no sense. should we be staying at sending f-16's and tanks to egypt when president morsi stands up and says jews are descendents of pigs and dogs? i say no more f-16s, no mor

where china is rising, which is fine, but i -- but behaving aggressively, which is not. strengthening our deterrent and defense forces in the face of north korea's nuclear provocations, checking uranian aggression in the gulf, and confronting terrorism, including accelerating the certain defeat of isil in iraq and syria, and wherever it metastasizes in places like afghanistan. since, moreover, we have a pretty good record of never predicting successfully the strategic future. we have to also be flexible and agile preparing for it. preparing for unknowns we cannot anticipate. in the department of defense we do not have the luxury of choosing between these challenges, or between acting in the present and investing in the future. we have to accommodate both changes in technological landscape and strategic landscape, we have to do it all. to stay ahead of these challenges and stay the best i have been pushing the pentagon, all of us, to think outside of the five sided box and invest aggressively in innovation with innovative technologies and innovative practices, and innovative people. le

the other threats we face. china has been very, very aggressive at militarization in space. and they are very aggressive about investment in technology, certainly to try to mute the strength of our u.s. naval forces around the world. and then, one those things happen, you watch what their aggressiveness in the south china sea. and that is clearly something that is concerning and i think it's a growing tension. i still believe that between vietnam and japan, there will be some maritime skirmish within the next 24 months, and i don't think it will be huge, but i do think there will be a maritime skirmish between either vietnam or japan with china in their pursuit to push out their boundaries in the south china sea. that's significant, about 40% of the world's trade goes through the south china sea. we have been, as the u.s. navy, we have been there since we've been a country. so when china starts telling us that the u.s. navy can't be in the south china sea, that's a huge, significant strategic threat to the united states and certainly our economic prowess in the world. clearly russia

time with them as well. ms. fiorina: i have been doing business with in china for a couple of decades now, and the chinese are motivated first and foremost by what they perceive to be in their nation's economic self-interest. their economic-self interest requires them to grow at a certain rate, to lift a certain number of people out of poverty, because they have figured out that political peace and social peace require a certain standard of living. that is the bargain they have made with the chinese people. we will crush freedoms, and in return, you will have a reasonable standard of living. that's a bargain that's fraying at the edges in very real ways. they do not care what we think about their human rights record. they really do not care. and so however objectionable we may find their human rights record, we are wasting our breath. they actually do not care when we say we think they are manipulating their currency. they think we are manipulating our country. -- currency. i would agree with them. qe1, qe2, qe3 has had the effect of manipulating our currency. so we have to talk to th

participated in by russia, by china, and some allies of ours like south korea and japan that find these sanctions very costly. but that's precisely why they've become so effective. and so what we've said is that we do not loosen any of the core sanctions -- we provide a small window through which they can access some revenue, but we can control it and it is reversible. and during the course of these six months, if and when iran shows itself not to be abiding by this agreement, not to be negotiating in good faith, we can reverse them and tighten them even further. but here is the bottom line. ultimately, my goal as president of the united states -- something that i've said publicly and privately and shared everywhere i've gone -- is to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. but what i've also said is the best way for us to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapons is for a comprehensive, verifiable, diplomatic resolution, without taking any other options off the table if we fail to achieve that. it is important for us to test that proposition during the next six months, unde

security council, sad as it is, with the veto and the ability of china and russia to block resolutions, like the one withe icc as the organ responsibility, the only time there has been involvement by the u n general assembly was in the cambodian context, where the security council was not seized and there was some opposition to a cambodian court. the general assembly, including the regional countries, wanted to see this done and they asked the secretary-general to become intervened aeven second time when the negotiations work resulting in an agreement. but keep in mind that was in the u.n. general assembly acting itself. at was the secretary general an agreement with a member state -- that was the secretary-general reaching an agreement with a member state, cambodia. the idea of the general assembly acting on its own is not something we've seen in the justice area. but as i said, the cambodian precedent is out there as one that people could look at, but oppositiones not an group or something like that. it requires sovereign states or states to be involved. >> question? steve, in terms

peace issue was headed toward a cliff. where china suggests in the chapter is that here the president needed to create a connection with the israelis and waited too long to do that. so in a sense he was a collaborationist. meaning he viewed israel for the partnership lens and found himself very strongly committed to israel, and yet when it came to the peace issue he saw himself there a different kind of lens. the previous presidents are you identified who consciously made a decision to distance. eisenhower for sure. if you read the chapter, the link to which he goes is extraordinary. he contemplates the use of american forces against the israelis and when they requested arms throughout this period. iraq, the recommendation frequently was to the israelis that you should be a good neighbor to all of those around you who completely reject you. yearsin, the first two when he meets with golda marr he presented different picture but his actual posture, nixon believed the 1969 war was a defeat. this is someone who actually made the decision to suspend phantoms at the very moment that the sov

mexico from the u.s. were larger than exports to china and japan together. they were larger than the sum of exports to germany, france, poland, and the u.k. put together. that is the platform on which we have an opportunity to build. i agree with secretary kerry and what the minister said that it is not necessary to reopen nafta, but we have to construct the idea of a dynamic north america. north america is the single most important block in the world today. the three economies standing before you today is about 1/ 3 of the world's economy. we are the largest exporters of most advanced industries. we have the obligation to review how the economic process is going in such a way as to remove any obstacles for trade, investment, and economic prosperity to be an advantage. what we agreed to today will allow us to have an agenda to have mechanisms that will allow for the commitments that we can reach to be fully implemented. in terms of the trade relationship with europe, at some point we will have three bilateral trade agreements with the european union. it is in the interest of mexico t

content should not be a difficult thing. the response of russia and china to the policy of the administration with respect to intervention is a question and second, the discrepancy between some of the administration officials and what has come out in israeli newspapers the last couple of days. the russian military and medvedev have said in recent months that the kind of intervention against what we saw against libya and we can see with syria could lead to full- scale regional wars including using nuclear weapons. >> can you make your second point? >> benjamin netanyahu canceled a meeting with his staff a couple of weeks ago due to the leak that after the martin dempsey speech in london, it leaks at the white house -- it said the u.s. would not ask israel as long as iran did not attack the united states. this kind of a ghost of the cuban missile crisis. the administration says one thing but the joint chiefs have asked obama not to tell israel not to attack iran and obama reportedly said that is not my position. >> we get it. would any of you like to comment? we will take this as
