The Marine Corps lost a legend last week when Col Fox passed away. He was interviewed for almost an hour by the “Veterans History Project” of the Library of Congress, you can watch the entire video here. It’s an awesome interview that show the many sides of a great Marine leader.
Grand Newsham, our resident Pacific Rim specialist, joined us to talk about whether we should take China’s “new sanctions” seriously or whether it is the age old trick of the Chinese — big announcement and then nothing delivered?
We’ll also discuss the likelihood that Japan and/or South Korea will acquire a “first strike” capability as well as “mutually assured destruction” capabilities in order to balance the regional scale.
You can find Grant Newshams columns here, in Asia Times Online.
