fundamentalist islam will go. the muslim regions of russia, some portions of china and even iran. is it is now a problem in which the future security of the world, it's fundamentally involved. now we are there exclusively and that is a condition but we cannot remedy it in a month. the president stated as a candidate and stated several times a person it's one that he considers afghanistan a war of mississippi. and i agree with it. he has added an troops deployed with it and that i agree with. he now has before him the recommendation of the commander that was appointed by this administration and even supplanted by this administration, and the commander of the central command. it is no political basis on which to -- there's no strategic bases and the political lesson that one would have to draw from their is that america does not want to put through the strategy that it has announced as its goal. so i would argue one wants more diplomatic flexibility or whether one believes that there has to be a certain military outcome in either case, we should follow the basic recommendations that are now before

, the china and india full employment act because what this will do -- it is in my opinion almost unpatriotic that we had a majority of the u.s. congress vote for a bill that will send good-paying jobs out of the united states to china and india and indonesia and all these other countries. you know, it's amazing the obama administration and the democrats in congress say, we will pass this and then the rest of the world will do the same, uh-huh, china and india have made it very, very clear they're not going to pass cap and trade. but the one thing that the international community all agrees on, as you know, the rest of the world never agrees on anything, right, but on cap and trade they want america to jump off the cliff first. and let's make sure, ladies and gentlemen, that we do not do that. [applause] now i'm going to make two other points and turn it over to my friend jim dement. first, what in the world are we doing with this national debt? i mean, it's such an abbombination, $11 trillion debt and we have borrowed more money, ladies and gentlemen, in the last 18 months than w

] >> i thank the president for his statement. i now invite president of china to speak from the perspective of fast growing developing countries and the opportunities and challenges in addressing the climate change. mr. president, you have the floor. [applause] [mr. secretary general, dear colleagues, global climate change has a profound impact on the survival and development of mankind. it is a major challenge facing all countries. i wish to highlight here a few principles that we need to follow in our common endeavor to tackle this issue of climate change. first, fulfilling our respective responsibilities should be at the core of our effort. the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities embodies the consensus of the international community. adherence to this principle is critical to keeping international cooperation on climate change on the right track. second, achieving true benefits and win-win outcomes should be the goal of our effort. developed countries should support developing countries in tackling climate change. it is their responsibility, but also serve

true democracy. we're there to help them. i will skip over to china. carter center has been deeply a bald in china at the invitation of that country for more than 10 years in helping have open and honest democratic elections in their provinces -- and their small villages. we've made a lot of progress there. there is still some struggle in government itself to extend its democracy to other forms of government, the communist party system, but those villages are not part of the communist party system. that starts in big towns and in towns and provinces. we're still working in china and we're expanding our efforts to work with china on better health care for africa and other places. we're also helping to proceed with further economic developments in those small villages, to which we have now introduced honest elections. we have a wonderful website used by scholars in this country and around the world to monitor what is going on inside china. not to switch to the last thing i'm going to mention, disease. the carter center now deals with five almost completely unknown diseases in this coun

question has to do with china's appetite for treasurys and what that might do in terms of our policy and the degree to which you are concerned about that. >> yes. we have a substantial appetite to borrow, and they have a substantial appetite to hold reserve and linde to us. that is a relationship that has been very substantial in our mutual interest and it has very much been a source of support for both economies. i think it raises what is the question whether china holds the debt or whether anybody else holds the debt of how we think in the united states about the accumulation of government debt. i believe very strongly that we did the right thing, we did a necessary thing by substantially increasing the government budget deficit as part of stimulating the economy. if we had not done that, the consequences would have been much more serious economic collapse, collapsing tax revenues, far greater need for government spending in many areas, and ultimately, much more debt. so the steps we are taking to protect the economy protected the financial system and protected our national health and

larger than our closest competitor, japan. and it's larger than the economies of japan, china, germany, and great britain combined. and we got there through innovation. we got there through choice. we got there through competition. we got there through individual initiative and responsibility. not government control and management. as we have seen time after time, when you substitute a government controlled and run program for individual choice, the cost goes up, the quality goes down. and when it comes to health care, there's nothing more important than quality and choice. given the choice, i'll always place my faith in the individual not the government and this time is no different. no different with the credit card legislation, no different with the health care legislation. mr. chairman, let me conclude by saying many of my colleagues in this body, both republicans and democrats, are going to come in and they are going to vote for this legislation today. they are going to do so really, many of them, because of the underlying legislation and the animosity and bad feelings it

ship that was clearly built in the peoples republic of china. i supplied to the rules committee those same photographs, a vessel that anyone can clearly see this is an emergency repair and rebuilding of an american flag jones act vessel in the communist china. i brought this to the attention of the commandant. i want member to hear this. a vessel is deemed to have been rebuilt in the united states only if the entire rebuilding including the construction of any major component of the hull or superstructure is done in the united states. that seems clear to me. apparently it was not clear to the marine inspection office of the coast guard. i asked the commandant for a clarification. why don't you come up with something your folks can understand. he came up with a simple amendment that said 10% of the weight of the vessel. if you are now changing 10% of the weight of the vessel, that is clearly rebuild and has to be done stateside. an amendment drafted by the united states coast guard was rejected. i was told it was because of foreign treaties and i would remind those people that this is
