CR Bashar Dylan is from BBC Persian Already the hard liners inside Iran are taking this as a sign of weakness and even blaming The government of Rouhani himself for showing weakness and emboldening the will they believe to be the Israelis and carrying out these attacks, which is not the first one of its kind. Despite the Oh the bombastic language from hard liners inside the country's screaming for revenge. What they are doing is really waiting it out till a Joe Biden administration comes in in 50 days.

The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa

"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha

Because we had the stature in the world in the mobilized the world to address Ebola, they kept isolated 23 African countries. And I think that that is one of the things that we're gonna have to do is well, it's not just us going through the economic crisis. It is a global crisis. And so that's where we're very fortunate with Vice President Biden because he knows the world leaders so he's gonna have to do a world tour, basically making up with all of the insults that have happened, I'll share one story with you when Trump said What he said about the African countries. You know the asshole countries well in Washington, B C. There is an office of the African Union. And that is an office where all 50 plus ambassadors meet once a month, and after he did that I called up the African Union office and I asked address all 50 plus ambassadors. And I went over there to one of their assemblies, and I apologized on behalf of the American people. So I've had to do and other people have had to do for the last 3.5 years. Every time we go overseas. We usually are in the middle of apologizing for something. I went over to Sudan because the Trump administration was trying Tio Flock relations. And while I'm there, meeting with the government, trump issues a travel ban on Sudan and they're looking at me like, what do you fear for? So I think that we will be fortunate to have him. As a president because bite knows the world leaders, but he's really gonna have to go around and peace together.

What do you expect after the elections or we're going to go back to somebody else hiring up orders and signing orders when we get the real legislative process going well, you know, I hate to say this and to be partisan, but We have to have the Senate and the house and we have to have the presidency and I think one day the Republicans might regain their party, But they have given up their party to an extremist element.

Somalia and Kenya have gone very close to going to war with each other and may get close. Astill the battlefield is jubilant. One of Somalia's five semi autonomous states. It lies just across Somalia's border with Kenya. Kenya regards drew ballooned as a vital buffet. Between it and Al Shabaab the fanatical Islamist militia which wreaks most of its havoc in Somalia but has also been responsible for large scale outrages in Kenya including the two thousand and thirteen attack on the West Gate Shopping Mall in Nairobi and the two thousand and fifteen attack on a university campus in Garissa accordingly Kenya has cultivated friendly relations with Jubal lands regional government and with jubilant president.

Kenya's desire to put physical distance between itself. And the PESTILENTIAL MARAUDERS OF AL.

Miss Job spoke to you and uses Christina's Silvio and said there was now a high level of will and political engagement to end the practice. But I just want to remind that we are talking about two hundred million and we mentioned Gert that went through the practice of GM that today alive but this is Based on only a number of countries with comparative data. And you're Li are have estimated incidence of four million million girls that are going through this practice of female genital mutilation So our goal today was in this campaign. Pin is to protect And make sure that this form of curse a women You know we'd be protected from female genital mutilation so in terms of intervention. are where we are today. I I can see that we have reach high level. Political Takle will and engagement from member states To eliminate the practice of female genital mutilation We have also who Being able to support the African Union in her in there You know vision to accelerate if to end image by launching a campaign last February twenty nine thousand nine hundred opinion Salima to end Few mentioned magician Russian. The most important for us is basically the young people our representing seven sixty percent of the population of countries his way of GM is prevalent. And who have the potential to support the mobilization the advocacy walkaway all cadet education of People Motza Grandma's leaders religiously traditional leaders men in boys or girls To really abandoned practice of imitation so we are quite confident that the the process has been you know re analogize and is accelerating and that we are making a lot of progress but we need to also to be cautious that not all countries are making progress at the same time and on the same piece you mention a lot of progress and yet we see this this week again that a twelve year old lost her life in Egypt in a medical context while undergoing F- GM so this is again a reminder to everybody that medicalisation indication of MGM is not a solution it it's not You know I is is not a way to reduce the HAM official genital mutilation and it should stop and there is a strong commitment from countries where medicalisation of Achie- 'em is taking please is like Egypt to really stop This this process so what we know is that you know if we we do not encourage actually Any community or people to sink that moving from type three in fibrillation of Cheam to type one one of them is a way to go and should be respected because it's a process of a lengthy process of behavior change in mindset but we want as the United Nation altogether an all agency to gather to say no to female genital mutilation that we have zero zero tolerance for any type of image in mutilation practice in by health providers or practiced by traditional practitioner. This he's zero for this year's theme for the International Day Against Female Genital Mutilations is unleashing a youth power. Why was it important to bring the youth in the US are representing almost sixty percent of the population of the country's trees way of GM is prevalent not all countries but most countries were up GM privilege and so Six out of ten people are young. People So they represent really a power They represent a power in terms of agent of change represented power in terms of also Watchdog and what we have seen over the years is that this young generation has taken a strong leadership in ending And claiming their rights including the rights for body integrity and body autonomy and not be able to go and be subjected to this kind of Humphry. Practice of like genital mutilation so This a young generation to be engaged in the design of programs. Listen Policy and plan of action needs to be in power and need to receive also the resources not only In terms of technical assistance systems but you know and substance but also in terms of funding. Because they're everywhere they're in the old neighborhood there in all villages in rural area Korea everywhere so if we transcend this young generation for the implementation for the advocacy for education for also also the rule in terms of Soviet system. We do think that You know in the next ten years zero new case of female genital mutilation the youth receptive. They have fully receptive and we know that we still need to continue to engage young people but we have a lot of networks soi already very active of course in social media but will agent of change underground and were going around in schools in communities minniti talking to leaders talking to the parents protecting the young generation sisters and brothers and were very active in that area so we want to look at these positive effect but at the same time. We don't that we still need to continue to convince some young people. We need to continue to organize earth tolls youth well perceived by the older generations communities view. You have put your finger on a very important one And actually really. We are thinking that we should have more intergenerational dialog on that issue and We have admitted the CI for that. And we are starting to build the capacity. ACIDOSIS society this year on intergenerational dialog because we don't want or so are you know added people will have the power because he's sitting in governments parliaments and all to feel like this sort and so we need to make sure that this conversation between young people aspiration expiration and needs the rights.

So what I say is, is more based about not on personal observation, but from my expertise is an academic. And I find deeply troubling to see the kind of resurgence of an outright, undisguised religion-based nationalism.

"That's come home to roost in a very serious way. Is it your sense at this point that the transitional military council in Sudan is supporting the rapid support forces, and whatever they do, or is there any indication that the rapid support forces are kind of going rogue and doing whatever they want while they certainly are doing whatever they want. There have been many in regular forests. The Sudan armed forces who've been appalled by the rapid support forces for a long time. The Sudan armed forces is trained. Of their discipline. There's a officer hierarchy and what I hear continually from sources in Khartoum and elsewhere is that there's tremendous dissatisfaction, especially in the middle rank junior ranks the majors colonels lieutenants, these would be the elements, who would stand up to the rapid support forces, and they would have superior firepower. Now, we're starting to hear whispers of a possible civil war, who would the sides be, and who would support them with a civil war in debate between the rapid support forces and those elements of the Sudan, armed forces who are determined that Sudan, will not be controlled by Ravid militiamen the African Union has suspended sedans membership. What her other regional powers doing? And what is the US doing? The US is doing nearly enough in part because it's an strained by President Trump's support for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates these are Islamic dictatorships and have no interest in having incident, a democratically led government that has a respect for human rights, civil rights, and a free press, but the international community, especially the European Union has a great deal at stake here. The European Union has funded efforts through the album sheer regime to staunch the flow of African migrated to the European continent. Well, one thing I can assure you is that if there is civil Lawrence Sudan, there will be a flood of Sudanese migrants to the European continent. It will be very bloody very nasty and could be quite protracted. So what is the union doing what, what standard the taking so far? The paean union has been big on words of. Adam nation urgings sympathies, and so on. But they've not made it clear how they want to bring pressure to bear on the transitional military council. We must hope that there is still some chance that the generals, the Sudan, armed forces generals will see the disaster that met he represents for the country and will reign him in who benefits from an unstable, Sudan, nobody sedan borders. A lot of countries that have internal problems of their own Eritrea, Chad, Libya, south Sudan. This is a pivotal country in northeastern Africa and it stretches from the Mediterranean to the equator, practically this is a region that could implode with all out civil war, civil war that's been made much more likely by the refusal of the international community, to recognize what was represented by the uprising that began on. December nineteenth of last year. We're talking about something that's approaching half a year in duration. Eric. What are you hearing from the people you're in touch with incident? They are desperate, desperate that their story be heard by the world, and they say had constantly what we want is freedom peace and Justice. And they've been resolutely nonviolent. They've done everything they can to abide by what we might call the norms of a democratic non-violent push for a true civilian governance in this country that they have not been supported more vigorously is really a shame on the world, and it's going to backfire because the absence of support as left the mouth facing a kind of mad dog militia force an army that seems paralyzed, and we could have averted this, we should have committed to democratic change in Sudan, long ago.

Yes, the Isabela Rossellini is doing a circus show in San Francisco with her dog people might have just known me as a model, and so they magin that Dino aware a lot of makeup, and I only talk about facial. But I just do what is interesting to me from cosmetics to animals, I'm Brian watt linked link circus today on morning edition. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene at NPR west in Culver City, California. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In Washington DC, President Trump left little doubt that a cancelled flight for house speaker Nancy Pelosi was an act of reprisal one day after Pelosi suggested delaying the state of the union speech. The president called off her secret military flight to Afghanistan. Other government flights are continuing. I met a partial government shutdown Pelosi. It said the state of the union speech should be delayed because it is a high security event and key security officials are off work or going unpaid needless to say, none of this addresses, the substance of reopening, the government or the presidential demand for a wall that triggered it. NPR? Congressional reporter Kelsey Snell is here for the latest version of groundhog day. Kelsey good morning. How did this story unfold yesterday? Well, we congressional reporters and people in the capital found out the policy was going on this trip in the letter from the president saying that he was can't. Celing the trip that's partially because most of the time these kinds of congressional trips particularly towards sounds like Afghanistan are not revealed beforehand security reasons. Absolutely. I was actually talking to one Senator who's been on many of these. And he told me that he's typically told the only person he can tell about the trip is his spouse. So the president of revealing this trip was going to happen was really a surprise to a lot of people in fact Pelosi and the rest of the delegation headed to Afghanistan in Brussels were already on the bus to their plane one. This letter went out they had to turn back and go back to their offices. It was a total scramble, and and you reporter to some reporters were able to watch them get off the bus if I'm not yes. They watched them watch the bus leave watched the bus come back and watch them. Go back to the capital. It was a really remarkable. So is the state of the union truly truly off? Well, what they need to have an invitation the president can't come and speak on the house floor where the state of the union usually happens without an invitation from the speaker and speaker. Oh, she essentially rescinded that. She did give the president the opportunity to submit his remarks and writing or come back after the shutdown is over she said that she doesn't have any doubt that the federal workers who secure events like this could do the job, but they should be paid to do it. Okay. So a little bit of hardball being played here. How concerned are the people around the president as the shutdown completes about four weeks here? Well, it's kind of a mixed bag. You have Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell saying that he will not vote on any spending bills to reopen the government in less the president says he'll sign them. And he's been putting that firmly in the lap of Democrats and the president to work that out McConnell is more or less removed himself from this negotiation altogether. But that has some moderate Republicans really concerned we've seen bipartisan groups trying to work together to get something done. But over and over those bipartisan groups groups that have involved Lindsey Graham of South Carolina or Susan Collins of Maine Lamar Alexander Marley, retiring from Tennessee, they have tried and they say. That they keep hitting wall. And that wall is the same thing. President Trump needs to be able to sign it for the majority leader to bring a Bill to the floor are people other than the president inside the administration beginning to grow alarmed about the effects of the shutdown. It's hard to tell. But you'd one of the things that I think people may have noticed this week is that they're talking about bringing back I r s workers to process returns that is an effort to blunt, the impact of the shutdown and typically you these negotiations have wanted some sort of big impacts the whole point of a shutdown is to inflict pain, right because it makes people come to the negotiating table. So as they're trying to blunt, this effect it is making it. So that the shutdown maybe doesn't have greater if the great effects that. Usually are negotiating tool leaving the White House is realizing the political impact on the president. Who is blamed by most people for the shutdown could be getting quite serious. Yeah. I mean, the polls have shown that end. The White House seemed to be reacting to those polls Kelsey good to see it. Thanks so much. Thank you. That's NPR's. Kelsey snell. Now the government shutdown began with President Trump vowing. To stop Central American migrants with a wall along the southern border and almost a month later, there is still no agreement on that wall. But another effort to stop the flow of migrants is taking hold judges are increasingly denying them asylum under a new administration policy and peers Joel rose has this report on one woman's case. And just a warning some parts of her story are disturbing when the young woman from Nicaragua got off the plane in south Florida. She hadn't seen her parents in more than a decade. She says they looked exactly like they did when they left their tiny Central American town to find work in the US her eyes light up as she describes their reunion at the airport. Got out I saddle when I saw them. I ran to hug them. I felt the huge joy when I saw them again. And I knew that I was going to be here protected. We're not using the woman's name because her parents are undocumented, and she's trying to get Silom and stay in the US. She fled Nicaragua with her infant son to get away from the boys. Abusive father, finally in Florida. She felt like she had escaped his grasp missing I felt safe here I was far away. But she may not be allowed to stay in the US for long. The young woman arrived at a moment. When immigration is paralyzing American politics. The president wants to build a wall on the US Mexico border and keep asylum seekers on the other side of it. The young woman from Nicaragua has the dubious distinction of being one of the first to be denied asylum under a new Trump administration policy Evelyn Cologne, her lawyer. So this is the file and the first thing is that we submit alone. Shows me a stack of papers more than five inches high. The file details years of sexual and physical abuse. Her client described her had this woman's asylum hearing been held earlier by even a few weeks Cologne thinks she would have won I feel in my heart. That had this case been before. I don't be we would have had a different outcome. Even days before he what she's talking about. Here is a court ruling known as matter of AB, it was issued last June by then attorney general Jeff Sessions who oversees immigration judges it says in most cases migrants fleeing from domestic abuse or gang violence do not qualify for asylum. But Cologne says some judges have begun denying all domestic violence cases. I don't think they take the time to listen to the clients even in the hewing just have their script in her hearing last June. The Nicaraguan woman told her immigration judge that her boyfriend got increasingly violent after she got pregnant one day. She. Says he showed up drunk and started banging on the door. Melania K? Don, I was scared because he was screaming very loud. And he was banging on the door saying open, it you're my woman you have to open he kicked the door. So many times that the door fell. The woman says her boyfriend raped her that night, she was seven months pregnant. She believes that's why her son was born prematurely a month later. Her immigration judge said he found her to be very sympathetic still he denied her request Silom citing the new ruling from Jeff Sessions. Mark Metcalf knows how gut wrenching these cases can be he used to be an immigration judge in Miami. It's very difficult analysis. It is not easy for the judges. I've been there. I know it's not easy to say no to people in order to get asylum in the US, you have to show that you've been persecuted because of your race, religion or other characteristics and Metcalf who is now a prosecutor in Kentucky says just being the victim of a crime doesn't qualify to look a person. In the eye and tell them I believe you were telling me the truth. I just don't believe your claim is rewarded with asylum based on the fact that you've given to me today after the ruling from sessions last year judges have increasingly denied asylum claims. Now, they reject nearly seventy percent of all claims, but many immigration lawyers say sessions was wrong. They say some migrants fleeing gangs and domestic violence should get asylum because their own governments did nothing to protect them. That's why the woman from Nicaragua should be allowed to stay here argues, Karen Musalo, she directs the center for gender and refugee studies in San Francisco. She suffered horrendous abuse she went to the police really to no avail and tried to escape him. And that's really the classic facts of a case that should have been granted. Back in Florida. The Nicaraguan woman picks up her son from a neighbor's apartment. He's three years old now outgoing little kid with a patrol backpack soon after he was born. She says her boyfriend started to hit him two days fellow policy. That's when I decided to go to the police, but the police in Nicaragua never arrested the boyfriend or even talk to him. She says and the boyfriend he was furious. Mellon gay? He told me that I was never going to leave him that I was going to be with him forever because I was his property. That's when she took her son and fled to the US, she's appealing the judge's decision in her asylum case, I asked what she'll do if she loses the appeal. She said she doesn't know, but she can't go back to Nicaragua. Joel rose NPR news. The African Union has advice for the Democratic Republic of Congo.
