Charles: Breaking news tonight. Sources of Fox News reporting that Russia secretly deployed a cruise missile allegedly violating an arms control treaty between the united States and Russia. This unfolding while a Russian spy ship was spotted patrolling off the coast of
Delaware. The first instance of this kind since president trump took office. Joining me now to discuss Andrew is back. Andrew, what do you make of these -- I don't know. I don't know what to say. You know, the last week or so, it feels like Russia is starting to test president trump a little bit here. >> No. Very much. And you know what? This is a message not just for the administration butour western European allies who are the ones that are specifically threatened by the intermediate range ballistic missile deployment.
And what Russia is counting on the United States to do is absolutely nothing. And they're going to take that nothing from the white house, and they're going to show all the capitals of nato and eastern European states, particularly the states that are thinking about joining nato like Finland and Sweden and say, hey, look. America'snot interested in defending you. Only Russia. Only Russia is the only game in town. So I think it's a top security concern for the united state. Charles: You know, Naveed, today Sean spicer talked about ultimately president trump
hoping that he'll be able to persuade Russia to pull back, even perhaps giving up on crimea. Maybe a long shot, but certainly the way Russia is starting this out, it seems odd because he is certainly giving them the benefit of the doubt. >> Absolutely. And Andrew's absolutely right. I mean, I think this is purely -- look, we're not going to go to war with Russia. Russia doesn't want that. Weat. But it is clearly postering that is meant to communicate with us. And, again, as Andrew said, it is meant very much to
communicate to the western European nations. France
, Germany, whether election's coming up. And I don't think that Russia is going to unilaterally pull out of Ukraine. I don't think they're going to give up land. I don't think have made going to leave Syria unilaterally either. There's got to be some incentive to do that and usually the incentive that speaks the loudest to the Russians is strength. And, look, we just came from the Obama administration where that ssn't really the. Charles: Yeah. >> And frankly, we haven't seen it coming with president trump. I hope there's going to be a pivot. But it's really the only language that, unfortunately,
the Russians understand. Charles: Although, in defense of president trump, he is sort of hamstrung with the defense that president Obama left him. The creped strength of our military, the hardware, the hoar morale, the small military force and so on, it's kind of tough to show a strength with that. But that being said, I think obviously it's at the top of the agenda. Also tomorrow speaking of the agenda, Benjamin Netanyahu makes his visit to DC. And he's already made that he anticipates, Andrew, a stronger relationship between Israel and America.
Maybe one sticking block could be the settlements. Surprised some that recently president trump has hinted that he's not -- he's sort of against the expansion of some of those settlements. >> Right. And that's totally Normal because the united States policy has always been to oppose the creation of settlements. However, it's also been to oppose them in private. You know, I mean, what was so shattering about the resolution the Obama administration supported condemning the settlements is that it was at the un and not in bilateral meetings with
Netanyahu. So that's fine to oppose, and I think he may well make that point clear. That doesn't help the peace process. But saying that to anybody else is something that I think you'll never see Donald Trump D. Charles: Naveed, you just talked about Russia and Syrian and of course Iran, which is now in a de facto race to get a nuclear weapon. Israel has to live in the shadow of that danger. And embolden Iran that exports terrorism already on a level unmatched around the world,
eventually also having nukes. How much will that be part of the conversation tomorrow? >> It's a great question, Charles. You're absolutely right. And it's not just nukes. I mean, look, Iran is in Iraq. They're in Syria. They're in Yemen for goodness sake. This is Iran, make no mistake has been allowed to become a regional powerhouse, and I think the good news is that what that means is that el is aligned with the gulf state. There's an opportunity here to potentially not only take over Iran but potentially finally
solve the Palestinian question. Which I have to say, Charles, the Arab refusal to drop the right over return, which is a big part of the negotiations
