PNWNSF Grand Success

Without a doubt, attendees were treated to an overall exceptional afternoon at the annual Pacific Northwest National Security Forum.

Ambassador Darryl Johnson gave a remarkably forthright keynote address, balancing insights from diplomatic experience with knowledgeable evaluations of the competitive and partnering between China and the U.S. over the years.

Most memorable was a concluding comment by BG (ret.) Neal Sealock, former U.S. Defense attache', China. When asked how our current considerations to forgo additional F-22 and missile defense development and production, he replied: (If you're asking me) "where we're going as a nation - I can probably give you the Chinese answer before I can give you ours."

More comments on the PNWNSF will be added to this blog.
