10:15 pm
middle of somne else's civil war, this is a great tragedy, what is the objective? how are you going to achieve that objective, this is not ease or quick, i think the story you opened broadcast, chinese hackers that is whe we should pay attention, to syrias important, but, the cnese stealing trillions of dollars o american intellectuacapital and defense, capabilities i to me is where the problem is. lou: i'm confirmed in our lead. >> you are. lou: general your thoughts on syria. >> i disagree, if we never want to be involved in anyone's civil war we never back any insurgencies. and we have done both of those, i think. largy for pretty good reasons, the fat is no lesshan secretary of sta clinton, and petraeuselve it is possible to a rebels, vetted groups still achieve some outcome, i don't believe it could be
10:16 pm
decisive now, time on the side of the assad. and he clearly is onhe move. and frankly, i believe this obama administration and others are paralyzedyear o adverse consequence, their the situations is hopeless there is nothing we did do about it we can do something about i i also would take down assad's airfields and a lot of his missile systems, iould not establish a no-fly zone yet, but the tipping point, militarily, want assad to go, would be stop his air power from flying, once that happens, the momentum will -hift quickly, does not mean we know what political outcome will be, we down,ha is the retaly of it, we knowhat we g if assad stays in power. >> syrian rebel setting a 24 hours deadline for hezbollah to withdrawrom its support of assad is there a possible that
10:17 pm
would be met? >> n lou:hat is u.s. interest. >> syria is now liking bar scene in the star wars movie, every bad guy in the universe is the, over aouse rebel groups, the most powerful onc are tied to al qaeda, they are afilliated. any threat that anyone is making right now is not going to happen, they are in it to fight to the finish, if i have to say r a mine. general jack keane, i respect when you said but when you say i don't know what the political outcome is, what did we just have? i'm not sure this is a situation we want to go ingain, and roll the dice, and hope it will be better than when we have, assad is a murderous thug, he will you know rot in hell, but the thought we'll get involved in a war in middle east where we don't know political outcome is
10:18 pm
short-sighted. lou: general, go ahead and respond, then i have a qstion to follow-up. >> it is not just about assad, he is a brutal dec at this time -- dictator, we do have change sweeping through middle east it does prevent us some opportunity to influence outcomes not control them, and military action i'm suggests would be limited. and reality this is more about iran than it is about syria, this is our strategic enemy in mide east, they set on their geopolitical objectives to control the region, the coalition of lebanon,yria and ir is real to them, they are in, they hav thousands of fighters on ground, they have a 2 star general killed to drowned that is how serio they are -- th use proxies, and hezbollah are very much involved for the same reason, a lot of risk to hezbollah hereecausehey are
10:19 pm
fighting jihadists as well. you get eye sens a sse of how st is, to me if is a geopolitical interest in the region. lou: it has to focusn our key allie in the region, that is israel. which isirst of all, armed to point of making sirius thatsd today. if the f300 russian missiles are brought in and isrs are uncontinental forth an about -- uncomfortablebout that, becae of the involvement of various elements of radical islast groups. >> no mistake about it. yeah, i agree with that premise, this is number one issue for the israelis, the transfer of weapon systems to the a ahea hezbollahs
10:20 pm
difficult to trafer s300s to hezbollah, but there are chemical weapon there and other issues, does not make realty of s300 any less real, that is a sophistited sim, in the hands of the syrians ty could do real damage, but the fact of the platter is, this is a defense system that is well within u.s. capability to defeat, but a few other countries could defeatt. lou: turno issue you raised. wand to understand why now we have known that the chinese are carrying out with their front companies and their cybettacks, assaults on u.s. intellectual capital, weather control of our military or under the control of the private sector, for literally, two decas. why now, why is it information leaked and release how did washington post gets it happened on this? to wha end or purpose of that
10:21 pm
obama administration. >> i is reaching a critical mass, every one of our major weapon system seems to haveeen hacked, and they hacked into the fighte, they put o out on tarmac before we could, i think you are seeing a lot more of it, it is reaching critical mass. lou: general, your thoughts? >> well, i think we have to take the gloves off with china, we -- private security company tt exposed this numbe of weeks ago, cld have exposed 20 different attks, they had pictures of the people doing it, that is how much we know that i a private security company, we know what the chinese are doing, we steal their intelligence, they steal our technologien and teligent, we have got to expose them for what they are doing, and we're unwilling to do that. anand until this obama administration is willg to do, that they will keep oncomg, they do not want public exposure they believe they have
