don't produce it there, if you don't, you drive it to russia, or kazakhstan or brazil or iran, places that don't have nearly the focus on protecting the environment that we do. so, to me sh, this issue of strong, robust growth goes to the issue also that nick mentioned in his opening remarks. this also goes back to the issue of american confidence, which we need to regain and so many smart foreign policy practitioners recognize that we are best at developing confident, long-term foreign policy when the american people and the country feels confident and there's nothing like the confidence of a growing economy versus something that's not growing. h.r. mcmaster focused on this last week at the reagan defense forum when he talked. as nick said, condoleezza rice talked about this after aspen. one of my mentors, someone who i think has a lot of respect in this room in terms of foreign policy, bob zellick when he gave his well-known stake holder, foreign policy, china, look at the end of that speech he talks about american confidence and having to deal with china from a feeling and position

, iran, the array of cyber challenges we face, all of that weighs heavily on me even those responsibilities aren't mine. terrorism and counterterrorism will continue to fit into that national security landscape for a long time, but i accept that there are other national security issues which do demand more of our time and more of our resources. but there's still something i would argue pretty unique about terrorism and its ability to the strive the agenda for our national security community. asymmetric attacks are called that precisely because their impact extends well beyond what rational assessment would suggest they should. so i would argue that that argues for sustained investment in counterterrorism capabilities in the government. even as other national security priorities begin to take over. now, i haven't said much about it this afternoon, but our work in counterterrorism is, in fact, getting harder and more challenging, so we need to continue to try and hire and train and retain the very, very, very best of our -- and brightest of our young people to be counterterro
