All politicians are crooks, I fail to understand why anyone would expect them to be anything else.

We've got E-2Ds out there in Iwakuni (Japan) now, we've got F-35Bs with III Marine Expeditionary Force, we've got an all-Super Hornet air wing, and in a couple years we'll have F-35Cs out there. We have Virginia-class submarines making lots of deployments in the Western Pacific, and we also have high-end upgraded [ballistic missile defense] shooters in our DDGs. And so that, combined with the TPY-2s (radars) we have in Japan, the Patriot (missile defense) batteries, provides a pretty good umbrella as far as ballistic missile defense. As far as partnerships, we're in our 64th year with the South Koreans and the treaty, our alliance that is the foundation for peace and stability in the peninsula and in the region in Northeast Asia. … We do a lot of exercises, we have two major exercises under U.S. Forces Korea commander Gen. Vincent Brooks, Key Resolve and Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, that we show the North that we're ready to deter any aggression. With those exercises and those partnerships, I think on a daily basis we show the North that we're ready to effectively stop them if the need arises.
