The US Guantanamo Bay is marking its 10th anniversary, despite Obama's repeated promises to close the infamous prison. The president even signed a new law authorizing the indefinite detention of terror suspects.
Obama has made it clear that China is a
threat to the US in more ways than one. The countries are two of the
world's largest economies, but some economists believe China's economy
will surpass the US' economy in five years. Critics believe that is the
motive behind President Obama's announcement to station 2,500 Marines in
Australia. China considers the shift of power as an attempt to escalate
military tension in the Asia-Pacific. Paul Craig Roberts, former Reagan
Administration official and columnist, joins us to give us insight on
whats going on between the US and China.
