    Detected Closed Captioning: LOU: SECRETARY OF STATE REX TILLERSON TODAY DENOUNCED RUSSIA FOR ENABLING BASHAR AL ASSAD, SAYING THE KREMLIN BEARS SYRIA. THAT STATEMENT BY THE SECRETARY OF STATE COMES A DAY AFTER A CHLORINE GAS ATTACK ON A TOWN OUTSIDE DAMASCUS. MORE THAN A DOZEN CIVILIANS INJURED, MOST CHILDREN. JOINING ME NOW, RETIRED FOUR-STAR GENERAL, JACK KEANE, THE STUDY OF WAR, GENERAL JACK KEANE. GENERAL, GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US. >> GOOD TO BE HERE, LOU. LOU: THIS IS LIKE A — I DON’T THE RUSSIANS WE THOUGHT WERE IN HAND AND NOW THEIR PROXY IS DOING AS HE WISHES, WHICH IS DESTROYING THE LIVES OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN. >> WELL, THE FACT IS THE IRANIANS AND THE RUSSIANS PROPPED UP THE ASSAD REGIME SUCCESSFULLY. THE REGIME IS GOING NOWHERE. THEY’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO STAY IN POWER. IT’S A FANTASY WHEN PEOPLE IN THE ADMINISTRATION BELIEVE THAT THERE WILL BE A POLITICAL PROCESS IN GENEVA TO RESOLVE THIS TO THE WORLD’S FAVOR. NOT HAPPENING. THIS THUG AND KILLER, ASSAD, WAR CRIMINAL THAT HE IS, IS STAYING IN POWER AND WE DON’T REALLY HAVE A STRATEGY TO DEAL WITH IT. DONE A GOOD JOB OF THAT. BUT WE DON’T HAVE A STRATEGY TO IS A BIGGER PROBLEM. LOU: AND THE BIGGER PROBLEM IS OF COURSE RUSSIA. WHAT ARE WE TO DO IN CONTENDING WITH TWO LARGE POWERS, GLOBAL POWERS, THAT IS RUSSIA AND CHINA, WITH SEPARATE INTERESTS AND ALSO EXTRAORDINARY COMMON >> WELL, THERE’S SOME GOOD NEWS HERE. THE ADMINISTRATION IN THEIR NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY AND NOW IN THE SECRETARY OF IDENTIFIED THE WORLD THE WAY IT REALLY IS, IN MY VIEW. THEY BACKED AWAY COMPLETELY FROM THE OBAMA’S VIEW OF THE WORLD. THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED RUSSIA AND CHINA AS TWO REVISIONIST POWERS. WE’RE IN COMPETITION WITH THEM AND WANT TO DESTROY THE INTERNATIONAL ORDER THAT THE UNITED STATES ESTABLISHED FOR 70 YEARS AND THAT WE HAVE TO HAVE STRATEGIES TO PUSH BACK ON THEM. WE’VE GOT TO BE WILLING TO CONFRONT THEM. THAT IS GREAT NEWS. BECAUSE THAT IS THE TRUTH. THAT IS THE WAY THE WORLD IS. LOU: AND THAT TRUTH ALSO ENTAILS, AS YOU POINTED OUT ON THIS BROADCAST NUMEROUS TIMES, THAT MEANS WE’VE GOT TO HAVE AN ECONOMY GROWING, GROWING AT THE RATE THIS ECONOMY GREW IN THE FOURTH QUARTER OF LAST YEAR, THE TRAJECTORY THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS SET US UPON. BUT IT ALSO MEANS IMMENSELY MORE MONEY FOR OUR MILITARY AND INVESTMENT IN TECHNOLOGY AND WEAPONRY. HOW CLOSE ARE WE TO BEING THERE? WE JUST WATCHED AND IDIOTIC CHARADE TAKE PLACE ON CAPITOL HILL WHERE THEY COULDN’T EVEN AGREE ON A BUDGET. >> WE’VE GONE ANOTHER MONTH WITH A CONTINUING RESOLUTION. THAT WILL BE FIVE MONTHS. WE’RE SUPPOSED TO APPROPRIATE WHAT THE AUTHORIZERS HAVE GIVEN THE PRESIDENT AND HE SIGNED, WHICH IS A $700 BILLION BUDGET, CLOSE TO AN 8% INCREASE, GOOD NEWS. THAT WILL BE THE START OF REBUILDING THE MILITARY. BUT AS LONG AS YOU’RE USING A CONTINUING RESOLUTION, THAT MEANS WE’RE OPERATING OFF OF LAST YEAR’S MONEY. AND LAST YEAR’S MONEY GAVE US NOT FLYING DUE TO LACK OF SPARE PARTS, NAVY SHIPS COLLIDING INTO ONE ANOTHER BECAUSE WE’RE NOT TRAINING THEM PROPERLY AND THE SMALLEST MILITARY IN 75 YEARS. THAT’S WHAT THE CONTINUING RESOLUTION CONTINUES. WE’VE GOT TO GET A BUDGET. AND CONGRESS HAS GOT TO DO IT. LOU: HOW IS MITCH McCONNELL AND SPEAKER RYAN EVER LOOK AT THEMSELVES IN THE MIRROR? HOW IS IT THAT ANYONE COULD CALL THEMSELVES A LEADER, A SPEAKER, A PERSON OF IMMENSE RESPONSIBILITY IN THIS, IN THIS GREAT GOVERNMENT OF OURS? >> BECAUSE DEFENSE IS NOT A TOP PRIORITY FOR THEM. IF IT WAS, THEY WOULD PASS THE APPROPRIATIONS BILL, SUSPEND THE TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THE NATION. AND WE’RE DOING IT SO INADEQUATELY FOR SO MANY YEARS NOW, WE HAVE GOT TO FAST FORWARD WHAT’S THE SAD THING HERE IS SOMEBODY HAS TO TELL THE PRESIDENT. HE HASN’T APPROPRIATED A DIME OF NEW MONEY TO REBUILD THE MILITARY. HE KEEPS SAYING YOU GUYS, WHEN HE TALKS TO THE TROOPS, YOU’RE GETTING NEW EQUIPMENT, WE’RE REBUILDING THE MILITARY. NO, NOT TRUE. CONGRESS HAS PASSED A BILL TO APPROPRIATE THE MONEY. HIS PRESIDENT’S LEAD AND HE HAS PRIORITIES THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE NATIONAL INTEREST.
