Trump’s Opportunity for a Reagan Moment with China and North Korea? Ep. 231
2 days ago
Trump has been outsmarting Kim Jung fat boy in North Korea at every turn. In this episode of “Foreign Policy Friday,” we are joined again by CR’s national security correspondent Jordan Schachtel to discuss Trump’s triumph over North Korea and how it is a perfect illustration of peace through strength. Using the right tools to deter threats is the best way to avoid war and to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Trump’s moves on Iran have clearly shaken Kim Jung to his core. We also discuss strategy moving forward and how to pressure China by using more aggressive tactics even while showing a willingness to hold the summit.
Wouldn’t it be great if Trump were to negotiate with Congress the way he does North Korea?
We also discuss the Pentagon’s insane plans to sell Turkey some F-35s before we’ve even used them here at home. Jordan shows how this is another example of an out-of-control military-industrial-complex that doesn’t serve us well. Israel’s military has made better use of them because they don’t have the same problems with waste.
Finally, why are we sending soldiers to die in Yemen and Somalia and then second-guessing them over “civilian casualties?”
Memorial Day should be a time for our policy-makers to reflect on how to put America first and best utilize the spirit of sacrifice in our soldiers so that it doesn’t go to waste.
“Our goal is peace. We can gain that peace by strengthening our alliances, by speaking candidly of the dangers before us, by assuring potential adversaries of our seriousness, by actively pursuing every chance of honest and fruitful negotiation.”
“The willingness of some to give their lives so that others might live never fails to evoke in us a sense of wonder and mystery.” – Ronald Reagan, 1982, Memorial Day, Arlington National Cemetery
“It is to the spirit of those men, exhibited in all our wars, to the spirit that places the devotion to freedom and truth above the devotion to life, that the nation pays its ever enduring mark of reverence and respect.
It is not that principle that leads to conflict but to tranquility. It is not that principle which is the cause of war but the only foundation for an enduring peace. There can be no peace with the forces of evil. Peace comes only through the establishment of the supremacy of the forces of good. That way lies only through sacrifice.” – Calvin Coolidge, 1923, Memorial Day, Northampton, Massachusetts
