Casimir Pulaski, Casimir Polaski, Iran discussed on PRI's The World

PRI's The World


I think largely because as almost a sort of semiotics point, it makes sense, the is a terrorist organization, but on the other hand there risks there risks that Iran might rise to the bait which they have not done for previous provocations at Washington and lead to in school, Tori cycle. There's also a risk that just at some lower level. A commander might see this rhetorical back and forth and say, hey, we've got we've got a terrorist on the other side of battlefield. Whether that's in Iraq, Syria, and the Gulf or elsewhere and provoke a flare up that neither side was really intending. So I mean, do you see this as any kind of pressure on Rondo a designation like this? I do not think that it is meaningful pressure on Iran at all the see the government of Iraq on our sue substantially sanctioned already that I don't see there being any new pressure here. What are you going to be watching for next year? Well, again, I think that it's entirely possible that adjust ends here. Both sides have made their point. And we move on with a bad, but not the tier eating relationship. I think there's a big question about what this means from Washington is this an indication that the hardliners in the Trump administration have won the debate. And they're going to keep reading until they create a crisis alternatively is an indication that they've lost the debate. And this was just sort of a not particularly substantive sop that was thrown to them. Or finally, this is an administration that has real problems with internal policy coordination is this just a decision in a vacuum. That doesn't tell us anything really about what comes next with her on. Joint blank is senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for international peace. He was the State Department's lead coordinator for implementing the Iran nuclear deal, President Obama Jarrett. Thanks for your time. Thank you two things. You should know about revolutionary war hero Casimir Pulaski. He's the father of the American cavalry. And he was intersects born with both male and female, chromosomes and anatomy that aspect of his identity wasn't known during his lifetime in the seventeen hundreds but several years ago Casimir Polaski skeletal remains were exhumed in Savannah, Georgia when the monument they were in was in disrepair that gave scientists chance to do a full forensic workup. And that's where Virginia Hutton esta. Brooke comes into the picture, she's an anthropology professor at Georgia Southern university who worked on the Polaski case. And she says when they XM the skeleton they discovered something surprising. What was discovered then was that the skeleton looks very female for all of the point. It's that we use frenziedly to look at sex all of those points skewed in the very female direction. There some geometry of a female Hollis that basically widens the birth canal area a bit sort of ways these things are expressed all very female looking these female traits. Tell us then about general Casimir Polaski what they tell us is that there is some level of female pattern developments happening in Polaski in this person that we have his Mwale records from end he's baptized as Casimir he'd baptize the son of parents and this linguistic difference in social sciences between sex and gender actually comes to pretty good use here, his gender was absolutely macula throughout his life. There's no question of what his kind of soc. Sial role was from birth on. And because he was baptized as a son there's early portrait's of him that clearly show facial hair and know, even some little like hair milk boldness thinning going on. There's definitely features that show some presence of Andhra jen's happening in his body..
