meanwhile we are looking at china this morning reportedly looking to build its first permanent military base on the atlantic ocean in the central african country of guinea according to the wall street journal the white house and the pentagon urging the small african country to reject this proposal warning that a naval facility where china can re-arm with munitions and repair naval vessels will pose a significant threat to the world joining me right now is the center for american security co-chairman and fox news contributor general keith kellogg general it's great to have you this morning thanks very much uh for
00:32
being here assess the threat from china uh particularly with this new information that they want that military base right on the uh atlantic ocean in africa yeah maria thanks for having me look china is an adversary by every definition of the world they're an economic adversary they're a cultural adversary they're they're a military adversary and this just proves it and what they're doing is they're thinking strategically if they're looking at both sides of africa you know recently they built a base in djibouti which gives them their capability to control access
01:04
to the suez canal and they're using that through a depth diplomacy where they build up a base and then when the country can't pay for it they take the base over and then they have full control they just did that in entebbe uh the intel international airport for uganda where they built up the airport uganda couldn't pay for it now they own the airport they're doing the same thing in the panama canal where they're controlling the shipping lanes from both the east in the west out there by building uh port facilities and now they're doing it in west africa so they've got a real strategic method of
01:34
what they're doing steve townsend who's the commander of african command is not an alarmist i've known steve for years and when he brought up this whole issue about them building a base it should raise concerns from the united states of america they've got a plan and it's a strategic plan and they're an aggressive plan of building forces well forward so they can deploy military forces in the atlantic into the pacific and give them not just regional dominance but global dominance yeah that's absolutely right and i reported about the base in djibouti many
02:05
times in fact they followed the united states in terms of building that base after the u.s had a base in in djibouti what should the united states do about it i mean obviously our adversaries are smelling weakness general you know you've got this call that's going to happen tomorrow between joe biden and russian president vladimir putin they're going to speak tomorrow as russia has been building up its military base i'm sorry it's military forces along the border of ukraine uh your thoughts do you expect
02:35
russia to invade ukraine anytime soon well look you're absolutely right they don't not only just smell it they feel it they touch it they see weakness in the united states of america this call is not going to go well you know when when biden first called putin at the end of january this year he was very very aggressive in his call putin's seen this before look he's been through four presidents and he knows how presidents react he called or we talked to putin 18 times when i was in the white house and he respects strength he knows what happens when when force is when respect
03:08
is forced upon him and we did that he saw that when we did with solemani when we killed russian mercenaries in syria when we went after solemani he understood that i don't think biden's going to get a deal out of this at all pines can biden is just going to make comments putin's going to listen and zen putin's going to do what he wants to do putin has given us a red line given the entire world a red line he has told us do not let ukraine become a member of nato that's his red line and i guarantee you if we make efforts to bring ukraine
03:38
into nato then russia will react he looks this is part of his territory much like china is forcing the issue with taiwan as well so this is one of those it's a very serious issue and i'm very candidly maria i'm not sure this president is up to it yeah i mean i i exactly i mean look these are adversaries they you know the question has to become why now right why are we worried about taiwan now why are we worried about you know ukraine now and the answer is is
04:09
they're smelling weakness louisiana senator john kennedy joined me yesterday on sunday morning futures and here's what he is saying joe biden needs to do right now watch us well weakness invites the wolves russia won't invade if president biden and the congress make it clear that there will be serious consequences if russia does what the president needs to do tomorrow tomorrow is sanction the nord stream to pipeline um
04:40
if you do that we'll get china we'll get russia down and then we can choke them general what are the odds this comes up with biden's call with putin would he sanction the north stream yeah well he should that's what we did under the trump administration because we saw that was a real weakness but look here's what else biden needs to do he needs to pick up the phone and call our nato allies and all our friends in europe and say look this is in your backyard you've got a major interest
05:13
here and you need to push forward on building up your military capacity and actually going into ukraine if necessary put a german brigade in there or a polish brigade in there or or of some a check brigade show force out there you know i used to laugh at you know the reason why the germans rearmed and when they did it always concerned the russians because the germans always seem to march east yeah and the germans are not putting forth enough effort in their defense establishment you know they're only paying 1.2 percent gdp in the defense and yet they have promised america and
05:45
they promised nato they put two percent of gdp in they're the ones pushing the north stream to pipeline and they're going to get 80 of them liquid natural gas through russia so i mean this is a huge european issue so biden not only needs to push putin biden also needs to push all the alliance the european union in europe as well to contribute more to ukraine's support but general you know as well as i do that biden's not doing any of that okay and you know he's he's not putting the pressure he actually allowed the north
06:16
stream uh and russia to send this gas and oil to europe and the same with china you know what about this diplomatic boycott of the olympics so what what does that mean i mean the world watched the ccp march into hong kong and start throwing freedom fighters in jail and start ripping up the place the world has been watching the ccp steal intellectual property now for decades bullying their neighbors in the south china sea what is joe biden doing about china nothing yeah look at there are three major threats we've got facing the world right
06:48
now of the united states one is russia russia ukraine the other is china china taiwan and also the iran nuclear deal and we're we're missing on all three we're not pushing the envelope yeah well we're begging them to do a deal obviously general i hope you'll come back soon there's a lot to talk about here and we really need to get into it uh to communicate all of this to our audience general keith kellogg thank you so much for your service and for joining me this morning we will keep watching all of these adversaries
