Heritage Event: Does the U.S. Face a Crisis in Asia?

Recorded on January 9, 2003

The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Does the U.S. face a crisis in Asia? With so much attention on Iraq, will East Asia prove to be the more formidable challenge for the Bush Administration? With new leadership in China and South Korea, how will the United States enlist its Asian allies to help quell the threat of an increasingly dangerous North Korea? Sen. Sam Brownback has just returned from Asia, where he visited the China/North Korea border, Beijing and India. He will share his thoughts on what the Chinese can do to help ease tensions on the Korean peninsula and address the ongoing problem of North Korean refugees. He also will discuss his talks in London about a post-Saddam Iraq. Join us as we discuss these issues and more with Sen. Sam Brownback.
