Admiral James G. Stavridis, Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander U.S. European Command, discusses the connections between the United States and Europe and why those connections are profoundly important to us as a nation. Focuses on a group of main concerns: declining population in Europe, Afghanistan, the coalition in the Balkans, Russia, cyber warfare, Iran, terrorism on European targets, piracy on the high seas, and the narcotic trade (particularly heroin which comes 90% from Afghanistan). Stavridis emphasizes that it is necessary for the U.S. and NATO to be militarily strong, but it is equally or more important to "launch ideas." He urges his audience to learn diverse languages, to study cultures, and most of all to read whether fiction or nonfiction.
