Carlyle's Rubenstein Interviews Sec. of State Pompeo

Two weeks after The Carlyle Group wagered on naval conflict by buying two shipbuilders Carlyle co-founder David Rubenstein interviewed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, President Trump's chief diplomat.  The pair talked about a number of world hotspots that could erupt into war on the seas.

The Carlyle Group has a history of war profiteering and stands ready to do so again.  Diplomacy can take the world away from armed conflict or drive nations to war.

Pompeo made it clear he does his boss' bidding.  Fellow advisor Hawk John Bolton has met a war he didn't love.

Carlyle's tea leave reading says naval conflict is coming, something Mr. Rubenstein failed to disclose.

Update 8-15-19:   Bloomberg ran a piece promoting their show.
