Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Chris van Avery (Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob speak with Commander Chris van Avery about the current tensions in the South China Sea. Why does America care what happens in Southeast Asia, anyway? Chris and Rob talk about how India and Japan have reacted to the developments, and Rob tries to figure out how the United States Navy matters for this scenario. Rob and Chris talk a bit about Air-Sea Battle (not the video game), and conclude by discussing the fate of the world’s most advanced fighter jet, the F-35.
