After watching it here are a few of the more interesting or memorable things:
According to them the state secretary needs people who can think in long term strategies. One of them even said that they need a ˝long-range dialogue that doesn't change every 4 years˝. That is of course impossible, because American foreign policy is determined by the relative strength of various lobbies, but they obviously didn't say a thing about at.
Nucular wepinz r bad'n'immoral!
t. Reagan. Paradoxically they want to get rid of smaller nuclear weapons because they are afraid that somebody might use them even in a situation where said somebody would be afraid to go balls deep and start a total nuclear war. Either they are using some kind of a reverse logic to make sure that ICBMs will fly in the coming decades, or they are very naive. They are also afraid that North Korea will prompt other Asian countries to develop their own nukes, and they don't want that.
They bring up the meme of 3D printing (one of them points out that addictive manufacturing is a better term, and I have to actually agree), but correctly identify automatization as being the real deal. And they conclude that it's pointless to manufacture anything in the other half of the globe if you don't need cheap labour. But then they don't say anything about where it leads, I assume it's because the US of A was drumming the beat of global trade for so long that no matter what they say, somebody will have a problem with that.
WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS!
They say that nigger hordes are going to swarm out from Apefrica, but then don't really comment on that.
They bring up the idea of carbon tax, and how it's a challenge, yadda yadda. The usual panels. Still, they did mention the possibility of new viruses emerging, and this video is a few years old, so this is where we can start speaking about conspiracies.
Drones are the future, at least according to them. They even argue to deploy cheap drone swarms in Europe that can be activated by reservists
Russians attacks. One of them nearly said Soviet Union instead of Russia, but then quickly corrected himself. Only to unironically say Soviet Union a few minutes later.
They also said that the DoD should buy ˝smaller˝ and cheaper systems, not big expensive ones. Which is an excellent point, but again, they should know that the DoD is the puppet of the military-industrial complex, so it's never going to happen.
According to them Russkies have a strong military but are quite weak actually, and they should have a dialogue with them. Which sounds like they want to poke the bear. They said that Russia feels threatened if NATO's influence reaches the eastern border of Ukraine, but Europe feels threatened if NATO's influence end at the western border of Ukraine. So they bring up some bullshit about how Ukraine should be a free and independent country that can choose its own destiny. Translation: they should bring Ukraine into their fold.
A lot of words but nothing really important. China thinks of itself as the middle of the world and wants respect, but they don't necessarily equate earning respect with military conquest.
Overall, it sounds like they aren't actually completely out of touch with the world, if anything they might even know more than they let us know. But if they know this much they have to see how America is too disoriented to do anything about any of these problems, because it's slowly declining.
