Listen here:
"I encourage our younger #leaders – especially the Junior #Officers, Chief Petty Officers, and #Sailors out there – to join the debate, share your insights and innovative approaches. We have much to #learn from each other." - Admiral Foggo Image
"We face 2 strategic competitors— #China and #Russia, but we cannot forget other serious threats coming from #Iran and Violent Extremist Organizations. Competition can be good. It keeps us innovating and makes us better." - Admiral Foggo
"We deter and defend against multiple adversaries who threaten the #American way of life and the freedom of our #Allies and Partners, but if that’s not enough, we’re are now facing unprecedented times as we adapt to the new normal of the #Coronavirus pandemic." - Admiral Foggo
"Just last week, the 🇷🇺 #Russians conducted two Unsafe and Unprofessional intercepts of our P-8 Maritime Patrol Aircraft operating in international airspace over the Eastern #Mediterranean." - ADM Foggo
"Since the onset of the virus in #Europe and subsequent government mandates, we have made excellent use of Information #Technology and #VirtualMeetings—just as we’re doing right now." - Admiral Foggo
"The #Coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the immense role of #China in industry and the #maritime realm. This concerns me – we need a stronger and more independent #industrial base. #Maritime trade is crucial to economic prosperity." - Admiral Foggo
"Last fall, the @BarentsNews Observer reported 10 #Russian submarines underway in the #Arctic and #NorthAtlantic – that number would have got the attention of LT Foggo at the height of the Cold War." - ADM Foggo
"#Russia isn’t 10 feet tall, but they are very capable, and #Putin has made it clear that he’s willing to seize any and all opportunities to reestablish regional hegemony. That extends to partnering with #China – when it serves both interests." - Admiral Foggo
"The threat of #Chinese 🇨🇳 @Huawei #5G looms large on the digital horizon. It is a virtual “Trojan Horse.” Many nations have fallen for the heavily subsidized, cheap price of the network and services..." - 🇺🇸 Admiral Foggo
"Building alliances & partnerships improves global security & stability. We recently celebrated 71 years of @NATO – the most successful Alliance the world has ever seen. Earlier this month... we welcomed our 30th Ally, #NorthMacedonia." - ADM Foggo
Foggo spoke about the plans being made to bring 2 more destroyers to #Spain that @US_EUCOM Commander spoke about when he was before #Congress! Image
