This edition of the Roundtable Roundup brings together a panel of business, politics and finance experts to discuss current developments in global geopolitics, including China, the U.S. military and global trade.
In this segment, General Anthony Tata discusses the relationship among national security, domestic politics, and America's history and purpose.
"At the end of the day," he says, "the currency that is traded for national security are the Marines, the soldiers, the sailors, the airmen and the intelligence community folks that go into the trenches and fight and die for whatever that idea is."
He continues, "The question really has to be: Is this a vital interest for the United States? The nation state's goal is to secure its people and support the constitution so that everybody can live freely."
"We have to outline what must take place for this country to be able to accomplish its constitutional responsibilities, to make sure that all people are created equal and everybody has the right to pursue liberty and happiness, and how we develop policies that do that."
