lockhead hartin and bowing and edwards air force base, china lake and the marine logistics bake in barstow. in the first interview since becoming chairman, i asked him if defense cuts should be on the table? >> i think that the leadership has said everything has to be on the table. i think probably what we need to talk about is what does that mean, being on the table? the secretary has said for a year now, he's been selling the service chief, we want to come up with $100 billion in savings, but when you find the savings through different efficiencies we'll let you keep the savings. we had a briefing last week that departed quite a bit from what we had been hearing. and i was quite concerned. i was shocked really to hear some of the numbers that he was talking about. we haven't seen the details of that yet. but basically what he was saying is the $100 billion that he had been asking the service chiefs for, they have found those efficiencies. and they are going to be able to keep $70 billion of it, but they're going to have to use $28 billion of it to pay for must-pay things. so basi

is moving along and provides a different forum in which both india and china are involved. we really need to do a on tpptive assessment and are set. directly to tpp and think about the impact on third and ways we can think about the way in which you might have third parties trying to engage in the process. the first is they could just join the negotiation. why can't you have the canadians, why can't you have the mexican taco i think jerry pointed out -- why can't you have the mexican straka -- the mexican's? when the canadians said that lists join tpp i was shocked by how much opposition there was in the united states to the canadians joining given that we already have nafta. it took me a long time to understand, dairy and pig farmers. go thatkind of a no other countries will join these negotiations. they were actually quite reluctant. anytime somebody wanted to join tpp they were quite reluctant. they told the canadians you had your big chance before and he lost it. i think that option of joining the negotiation is not likely. could waitis you until the negotiations are concluded an

singapore and the philippines and expanding our dialogue in exchanges with china. we are also an handed our presence and capabilities in the region. that includes -- expanding our presence and capabilities in the region. that includes allocating our naval fleet to have a 60/40 split between the pacific and atlantic oceans, increasing army and marine presence in the region. locating our most advanced aircraft in the pacific, including new deployments of f- 22's and the mv22's to japan. and lay the groundwork for the first overseas deployment of the f-35 joint strike fighter. the third element of our strategy is that as we do force projection in the asia-pacific and middle east, we still have to maintain our global leadership and presence by building innovative partnerships and partner capacity across the globe and using these innovative rotational deployment as a way to do exercises and training with other countries, developing their capabilities so they can provide for their own security. in latin america, africa, europe, and elsewhere. the past decade of war has reinforced the l

impact on the current job situation. the u.s.-china commission was formed by congress in october of 2000 to give congress regular updates on the china relationship. is it good for the economy? how are we doing militarily? every year, they produce an astonishing report that is ignored as most reports are. if you look back to the reports before 9/11, they were very accurate and completely ignored. it is the same thing with the china commission. i just saw an advance copy of the new report. i had to pay $38 to get a copy. you can get it free soon. the u.s. trade deficit is now more than half of the u.s. trade deficit with the world. it is 12% worse now than last year. our trade deficit with china is at a record high, $25 billion in one month alone. the u.s. supports roughly -- imports -- the u.s. imports roughly 640% more advanced technology products from china banned exports to china. -- than it exports to china. allot of that 640% is from american companies manufacturing in china and selling back here. if you blink, you would miss it in the debates that just went on. the debate over

has been unwilling to use that leverage to persuade pyongyang to change course. while china may have expressed its displeasure with the north's recent missile launch, the fact remains that beijing serves as pyongyang's economic lifeline, sending food and fuel to prop up the north korean regime and luxury goods to satisfy the north korean elite. china continues to play this role because beijing fears a flood of refugees from an unstable north korea more than a nuclear north korea armed with ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. my guess is that beijing also likes having a buffer between itself and south korea, a strong u.s. ally. by enabling the north korean regime is aggressive and reckless behavior, which threatens regional stability, china in up undermining its own security calculus. just what kind of regime is south korea backing? life under the youngkim is as bleak as ever, with the average person enjoying no real religious our personal freedoms. hundreds of thousands of political prisoners remain in prison in gulags. others endeavour to skate by any means possible, even if it

aware especially in the asian area that indonesia has and free-trade agreements with china. there are many others of this kind. we need to make it understood that we are not trying to cut down certain standards that have been achieved with a lot of work over time. we are trying to secure the future of what as we know it jobs as we know it in our countries. it would be important to talk to trade unions in germany about this because they are able to do quite a lot for people they talk to. go out of the box if you like and not meet only with your own people because they all know your viewpoint anyway, but go outside, go and talk to the public. bring this to [inaudible] and companies have a hard time. they are looking after their own and their own interests. we have seen that in negotiations with korea. that is also the case with japan. what will this mean for us if the south koreans are able to penetrate our markets and so on. it is interesting that there is this south korean trade agreement. there is an enormous growth rate. the other bit of what they feared has come to pass and that is

emerging markets, china, india and the best of them, who were providing global demand. in countries like the u.s. and europe better get used to this because we will be less and less relevant in the future with emerging markets. and i would say that coming the last x months, maybe there has been some rethinking about that. so my question to you is is the golden age of emerging markets behind us? what are the chances were the factors that the next decade will be so pleasant for emerging markets as the last 20-30 years have been? >> even africa had 5% growth rates. there has been a slowdown. if you look at some of the biggest countries, it looks like i will have a good third quarter. china came in at an annualized rate of 9.3% in the third quarter. there are all kinds of downside risks, the biggest one being what will happen here in this country when february rolls around. but over the next year, growth in the emerging markets will be over 5% and we think that will continue. so you won't see -- i don't think the 10% plus growth rate they use our prior to 2008. but a lot of the fundamentals

situation with russia and china. we need and the world needs a stronger america. >> all right. we will move on. i will give you a chance on the question -- this one is for senator warner. china is increasing its defense budget. it is up more than 12% this year alone. it is aggressively threatening vietnam, japan, and other asian neighbors over disputed islands. should china be considered a major adversary of the u.s.? does obama administration reflect that? >> i believe the administration's tilt toward asia was an appropriate position. what we couldn't have predicted for the other eruptions in the middle east, europe, and elsewhere. i think we have been very guarded with the chinese. i'm not prepared to say this is an adversarial relationship, but i do think we need to do more to promote activities with vietnam and other nations that are anxious for the u.s. to take a bigger -- this brings back to my mind -- it sounds like i am repeating -- but the deficit issues. $17 trillion in debt. in english, that means education, or infrastructure, research, and development. if we're going t
