“What they do, not what they say, is what matters.” – Gen. Charles Flynn

There is a strong desire for more multilateral and international operations, according to Gen. Charles Flynn. “What they do, not what they say, is what matters.”

Gen. Charles Flynn observed a pattern that was evident at Camp David’s inaugural trilateral summit involving the United States, Japan, and South Korea last month. There, the three nations agreed to start exchanging real-time intelligence on North Korean missile launches and to organize yearly military drills in response to China’s “dangerous and aggressive behavior” in the South China Sea.

It represented a significant change for Seoul and Tokyo, which had previously been at odds due to Japan’s colonization of Korea from 1910 to 1945.

According to Gen. Charles Flynn, nations in the area are attempting to show “unity and collective commitment” more and more in response to what they perceive as China and North Korea “acting irresponsibly and overly aggressive.”

Gen. Charles Flynn stated, “I think they are turning away from that, and I think they are turning toward the United States and other like-minded countries.”
