Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN) sits down for a conversation with attendees of the Monitor Breakfast to discuss the power dynamics between the Chinese civilian premier and the People's Liberation Army, relations between the GOP and the Tea Party, US policy toward Afghanistan and other topics.
Richard Green "Dick" Lugar is the senior United States Senator from Indiana. He is a member of the Republican Party and served as the mayor of Indianapolis from 1968 to 1976 and was elected to the United States Senate in 1976 where he has been the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations from 1985 to 1987 and 2003 to 2007.
In response to China's test flight of a new stealth fighter jet during Secretary of Defense Robert Gates recent visit to Beijing, Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN) explores the complex power dynamics between China's civilian government and the People's Liberation Army.
Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN) responds to a question on the challenge he is facing from a Tea Party candidate in his bid for re-election in 2012. "I think there are a great number of Americans, not just in Indiana, who are genuinely angry about how things have turned out for them," says Lugar. "In essence, they are unhappy about life in America and they want to express themselves."
Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN) suggests that the complete withdraw of American troops from Afghanistan may require enlisting the help of local Taliban militias, a compromise he predicts will be "disappointing" to many. "Withdrawal even partially or largely is going to mean acceptance of certain conditions that Afghans choose, and sometimes not by the ballot, but simply by the force of whoever happens to be in charge at that point," says Lugar. "And that's going to be disappointing to the world, to us, to many in Afghanistan."
They as usual only talk about military that is what America is stuck on stupid military instead of talking about this communist take over they still romance wars America will be punished for this grave stupidity and Communist China will rule America whether the people like it or not you forget this Communist Regime came from Mao who killed 60,000,000 MILLION PEOPLE, that is who bought the federal reserve and brought slavery to America How Ironic a Black President enslaves America. SHAME IS WHAT I FEEL IGNORANCE America ignores the Corporate power has sold America into slavery to Communist China spearheaded by a Black Obama that cannot find his Hawaiian birth certificate so says Govenor of Hawaii Abecrombe!

I´m sorry but ForaTv has to make a greater contribution to freedom of learning and freedom of speech It should not cost me to talk or listen about COMMUNIST CHINA. Who side are you on ! THEY JUST SOLD THE FEDERAL RESERVE TO COMMUNIST CHINA AND MAJORITY OF AMERICAN TAXES WILL BE COLLECTED BY FEDERAL RESERVE FOR COMMUNIST CHINA:

What a total bait and switch this has been, an utter failure and a farce. From "We need to bomb Afghanistan because they attacked us" to "we need to find Osama Bin Laden and break down the Taliban" to "We need to rebuild Afghanistan and establish a government we like" to "We need to get out and let's set up the radical Taliban as the government of choice."
