china. almost beyond our capacity to predict and control, but at the same time, as though secretary general, i am immensely grateful to world leaders who have come together with a strong, consolidated mind to help those people. these days, in this era of multiple crisis, not a single country or any leader can do it alone without the collective support, without global solidarity. this is an era -- we need global solidarity. we need global action. >> we go back to 1945 when the united nations begins. here we are 65 years later. has the mission changed? is it more critical? ? is it more important now because of this volatility in the world? >> price think the situation has changed dramatically towards much more volatile ways. the number of crises have increased. the extent of damage posted by natural disaster, mainly by climate change, has put us in a difficult position. unless we really get together to address the global challenges, global partnership, global solidarity, we will be very sorry to say that we will have to pass these responsibilities to our succeeding generations. i am d

last decade or so. china, at the same time, made dramatic moves in so many different areas. how do you see china right now, vis-a-vis the united states? >> is a major question. i happen to believe and have for deed time that china is in t a rising superpower. china has become the other superpower in many ways. and we should recognize this. you mentioned it to the global village. hopefully, the fact that we are increasingly interdependent economically, financially particularly -- this will lead to a degree of cooperation between the united states and china. in other words, if we suffer too much here, the chinese will not necessarily benefit but they may actually suffer as well because we are being increasingly interlinked with our economies. right now in europe, there is a renewed fear in ireland and other countries. there is no reason for americans to gloat about this. if a country in europe is having financial problems, they are going to decrease their imports from the united states. the whole global village is creating interdependent, which in some ways can be very helpful. they

scenario of the states being a problem. they were concerned about iraq and china and anti-ballistic missile defense, which of course anti-ballistic missile defense would not stop a terrorist attack. >> but did you say that clinton failed to go after them when he should have? >> the response was kind of ineffectual, cruise missile attacks aimed at their training camps in 1998 did not kill them, stop their operations. part of the blame also goes to the u.s. military because when clinton was saying what kind of military operations can we do against al qaeda and afghanistan, the army would come back with the invasion of normandy as a plan, not the small-operations plan that clinton wanted. soak the plans were never going to fly. the cia -- so the plans were never going to fly. the cia th, when it came the moment to pull the trigger, the intelligence was off. so the national security advisor and other people in the chain would say we do not have it. we don't really know if he is going to be there, this osama bin laden. in the trigger was never polls. >> let's jump a little bit into the bush era.
