Admiral James Stavridis (Ret), former Supreme Allied Commander at NATO and currently a member of the Carlyle Group, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about the breaking news of a Russian destroyer making an unsafe maneuver and almost colliding with the USS Chancellorsville in the Philippine Sea. Admiral Stavridis said Russia is "feeling their oats with their new big brother China." On the China-Russia alliance, Stavridis said, "When you put Chinese population, technology and economy along with Russia's natural resources it is a big big problem." Stavridis believes we are very close to having either a collision between our ships or an inadvertent shoot down of a Russian aircraft coming high speed at a U.S. Navy Destroyer. Stavridis said, "The Russians need to understand we are willing to pull the trigger if we have to. That is the only way to stop this."

When asked about what needs to be done to deal with the crisis at the border, Admiral Stavridis says we need a combination of more troops, some border wall and more technology.

Plus, Admiral Stavridis on the historical importance of the 75th anniversary of D-Day and why he feels the battle of Midway, which took place 77 years ago on June 4th, is a bigger turning point for victory in World War II because it shattered the myth of Japan's invincibility of superiority in the Pacific.
