Concerns linger about what intelligence snowed in still has to offer those two.
My health and escaped -- T McFarland of the currencies national security analyst joins us live from DC said -- just posted -- -- and foxnews.com just went up a few minutes ago.
And you say that this is the turning point in the president's.
In any presidency there's a point which you look back at a -- say you know after that point.
-- but nothing ever was the same again sometimes it's when a president then goes on to greatness but in the case it's Jimmy Carter for example.
-- the point at which you say you know nothing was ever the same again I think Obama's they are now.
With this -- -- about why because.
-- off from here on an Obama's not gonna get a break he's been shown by the Chinese last weekend by the Russians this week.
That he may request something his administration may ask for something.
But those two countries are two greatest competitors have no problem with doing the equivalent of a diplomatic slap in the face which is what.
This is and went from Russians say the -- futures -- that the Russian foreign minister you know the paperwork wasn't spelled out he has an and a transit -- -- the Chinese last week's saint.
Well you know you didn't ask that -- right right those excuses they're right up there with the dog ate my homework this is this a clear message the Chinese and the Russians are sending.
To the United States -- complete all you want okay are so what's the counterpunch.
Well -- I should be that the United States comes back instead of just looking helpless and -- -- which is how for example Jimmy Carter looked.
After the US diplomats were taken hostage -- -- Iran.
In the late 1970s United States has some real things it can do to put pressure on the -- -- just been on.
Unwilling to use those levers we have for example the Russians -- direct foreign investment.
To help their content they need American technology to develop some of your -- in eastern Siberia.
Those are things we can withhold from them we can also say to them you know that missile shield.
And Poland and the Czech Republic that we canceled as a goodwill gesture a couple of years ago the one that you didn't reciprocate will rethink that we may actually.
That missile shield back and that part of the world.
And so I think -- -- that all of the efforts Jana that this administration has made to quote reset relations with the Russians.
Have been a failure so not only -- out.
And we we see his comments coming from -- -- right keeping an -- and looking down and seeing if we have anything new on and apparently the Russian president is speaking about this during a news conference.
On a visit to Finland so we can follow that the bouncing ball on that -- that's -- them Russian president is doing today.
Our president is making a speech about global warming and climate change today.
And a point was -- on our show yesterday that I like your thoughts on -- that perhaps there's a lot happening in the background yes the president has cut hasn't come out like the Russian president.
And talked about this but perhaps there's a lot going on -- background and there's a reason not to be so public about it with your experience in government what do you think about that.
Now I don't think that's I happen at all because otherwise put in a foreign minister Russian firm answer wouldn't come out the statements they've just made the Chinese last week.
Wouldn't come out with the statements they've made.
You know wit and wisdom goes to these countries are a couple of things happening why he's got a price of admission what's he doing he's probably turning over highly classified information.
I think that's why a week ago you saw on the Chinese media accusations.
That the United States was hacking.
The Chinese that I was in China a month ago Jana.
And I talk to the vice foreign minister is another major issue between us is hacking cyber hacking cyber theft cyber espionage you're doing that to us -- Any say you know -- now America's doing -- to the Chinese.
Well I tell -- visit there was no proof of that.
So certain snow is giving them information that they want and are resolved I think they're feeling very embolden the Pentagon -- the United States around who everybody is at -- -- here but quickly -- there's a lot of time being spent talking about our enemies.
But where are friends.
Where are allies.
Who else is speaking out -- our behalf.
Nobody is why because they see the Russians and the Chinese can just do that intimidate and humiliate us they're gonna stay quiet -- -- silence how does this turn out.
Because if Russia and China do this now who's gonna do this next Russia's.
Ally may be why does this next them as well and then eventually you have countries like Cuba and Ecuador.
They think it's open season on the United States they've got the president's number and they're willing to exploit it -- to make of the silence of our friends.
As a topic we should talk a lot more about -- young as well thank you so much for your time today to urge our viewers to check out Aaron -- and foxnews.com thank you.
