basically had to figure out where the soviet union and maybe china were. and that could drive the rest of our policy making. this is an extraordinarily complex crisis that goes back 14 centuries. and to try to assume that the united states is going to be able to come in and deal with these ancient rivalries between sunnis and shiites is unrealistic. as far as the advisers who are going in, i think that's a good thing. it's necessary but not sufficient. remember, we've already invested $25 billion in the iraqi army. a lot of money trying to build an army that disintegrated on contact when the isis forces moved toward them. >> in'd we heard very vividly, barbara boxer was on television saying how do we pay for after school programs if we go back in for another round of investment on this. it will be a tough sell. you see the briefing room there. what we're hearing behind the scenes is he may offer more limited involvement than initially reported. he may reaffirm that they're not going to put boots on the ground. may describe potential air strikes but say there's still only under potentia

burns, big tough question for you at the end here. two powers on stage, china and russia, staying silent on the threat. how significant is their role on this? >> it does show how cynical the leadership, especially the russian federation is. not paying attention to this huge crisis political and humanitarian. i think they're sidelined right now. the central roles being occupied by the united states. the big question, ronan, for the president tonight, are we trying to contain isis? or are we trying to defeat it? to defeat it, you do need to integrate syria into the strategy. and you'll need to empower and arm and train some of those moderate syrian rebel groups. because you need a ground force to defeat isis. that ground force has to be in syria. rebels, peshmerga, and iraqi army. it won't be american troops quite rightly. so the president, i think, has put together a very sensible plan. he now needs to execute it. i think he'll have the support of the country. he should have the support of the country in going forward. >> and the numbers do suggest he has that much support. we'll s

awful lot of its attention on the asia pacific region where china and japan -- it was interesting in the clip you played from the president, he gave a slight dig at putin, described russia not as a global power but as a regional power. that's not simply a putdown, but it's also a message that the united states needs to have a strong response but can't lose sight of the rest of the world. >> let's talk about the long-term implications, the topic, nuclear disarmament, it's interesting of course that ukraine was something of a poster child for nuclear disarmament and agreed to surrender its arsenal in a promise for protection, the u.s. and uk and russia were supposed to protect its territorial sovereignty. do you think the recent events and inability of the international community to live up to the promise, put a damper on it in light of what's happened in ukraine? >> you raise a really good point. years ago mr. gadhafi gave up nuclear materials and the world moves to oust him. years before, saddam hussein cooperated with various weapon inspectors and in 2003 the united states invaded.
