Overseas Operations Bill: Government facing calls to rethink plan to 'decriminalise torture' by UK troops

"Torture has been prohibited under international law since nineteen forty eight and is enshrined in legal instruments such as the Geneva Conventions and the United Nations Convention Against Torture. But the British government is trying to push through the overseas operation bill which would introduce a stronger legal protection for UK soldiers serving abroad critics believe it will make overseas operations worse the victims of war crimes and for the UK standing in the world bill passed its second reading in Parliament on Wednesday and three Labor backbench peace had been sucked for voting against. Well Tracy joy is head of accountability and international cousy at freedom from torture, and she joins me on the line to tell us more good morning tracy. What does this bill exactly seek to achieve? Good morning to a gina the do a apparently according to the government seeks to provide greater protection for British troops against vacations claim that might have been brought from operations. That happened overseas more than five years ago. what we believe that it does actually is to create a barrier to justice with those he might have been subjected to war crimes by British troops in those are the operation. I mean, the government says that it is doing this for the soldiers but we've seen very very senior military personnel and ex personal come out to say that they'd gravely concerned about the signal. It sends I mean field marshals, generals, frontline veterans of expressed grave concerns that what are that precise objections? I think the objections that many hold is that and to summarize the words that you spoke in parliament that this legislation really is a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I think that the is acceptance that perhaps the prices that some soldiers have been involved in have taken Fawzi Long. But that really the problem of investigation and the government is seeking to legislate to solve the problem that would be better served through. BITTU. Protesters right at the beginning and more independent and speedy investigation I. mean the government denies that there will be any barrier to justice under these Nino's. It does say presumption against prosecution for torture and crime except in exceptional circumstances, what signal is the sending internationally It's very interesting that they say that but It seems unlikely that you would say that there's no buried to justice when actually they specifically introduced. Three layers of legal protection that would stop prosecutions that would've normally have preceded. And the signal that sins therefore is that they would be sick instances in which to torture would be deemed to be unexceptional and we find that quite startling. Actually, how could the government argue that torture could ever be unexceptional? I mean rape is excluded from from the provisions. That's obviously a good thing torture isn't does not mean that torture is a lesser crime. Well, that seems to be exactly the signal that the government is sending that I mean, obviously, it's excellent that sexual violence and raped or created and the Minister of Defense Been Wallace argued in parliament that the crimes that should never take place on the battlefield. Well, we would that torture should also never take place and it seems quite absurd that they would say out to give the impression that torture and other crimes against humanity as you say, Lesser Crime Than Sexual.

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

Before Resigning, Prime Minister Makes A Final Push To Strengthen Japan's Military

"Abe, Japan's longest serving prime minister, is stepping down this week after eight years in office. With his career ending he has made a final push to strengthen Japan's military. As NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul. That push could affect the balance of power in Asia. At a press briefing last month to announce his resignation, Arbet said the country faces and increasingly harsh security environment for North Korea has greatly improved its ballistic missile capabilities. He said he questioned if it's enough just to be able to intercept those missiles. And later suggested Japan also needs a missile arsenal as a deterrent. That could alter the security landscape in Asia. Sheila Smith, the Japan expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, points out that at the moment, Japan is the only country in Northeast Asia that does not maintain ballistic missiles. One of Bob's career long goals has been to throw off post World War two restrictions on Japan's military. He failed to revise Japan's constitution in which Japan gives up the right to wage war. But in 2015, he did push through legislation allowing Japan to deploy troops overseas in support of allies. At the time. He explained it like this. I know From tomorrow, no more. Let us no longer turn a blind eye to the changes in the environment and remain idle said he urged Japanese to be more confident. They also oversaw the making of Japan's first aircraft carriers since World War two President Trump boarded one of them on a visit to Japan last year and praised his host. I want to thank my friend. And your prime minister. Is an extraordinary man. His commitment to improving Japan's defense capabilities. Which also advances the security of the United States of America. President Trump is questioned the need to protect wealthy allies like Japan, who he says don't pay their fair share of defense costs. Matsuhisa Sato, a lawmaker with the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, says that even before Trump, Japan knew that the U. S was weary from decades of foreign wars, almost taken taking a soldier's gotta move. No Sekai. No case took President Obama said that the U. S is going to stop being, the world's policeman says, and the lawmaker added the trend of countries taking more responsibility for their own defence will continue. Regardless of who the new U. S president is Washington in Tokyo insist their alliance remains ironclad. But doubts about America's commitment are driving the Japanese debate about missile defense. Sheila Smith of the Council on Foreign Relations, says this represents a shift in Japanese people's thinking they've grown up with the U. S. Japan Alliance says the you know like the framework within which Japan thinks about its security. They don't have A conversation. I've never really had a thought process in their public policy debate that says So, what do we do if the alliance doesn't work? Former defense official Kyoji Ah Nagasawa argues that Japan now faces twin risks in its alliance with the US home Tonight. One risk, he says, is that the U. S. Might abandon Japan thie. Other growing risk, he says, is that the U. S. May drag Japan into an unnecessary conflict, for example, with China He says Japan should focus on diplomatic solutions such as mediating between Washington and Beijing, rather than seeking new weapons. The outcome of Japan's internal debate on missile defense will become clear by year's end. When Shinzo Abe successor and his government roll out a new policy. Anthony Kun, NPR news soul

Afghan government meets with Taliban political chief as Afghanistan peace talks begin

"The Taliban and delegates appointed by the Afghan government have come together for historic talks aimed at ending decades of war and Bahrain has become the latest Arab nation to normalize relations with Israel. W T O PEACE John Aaron talked with Mario Mancuso, global affairs expert and former Pentagon official about how significant the Afghan talks are. I think they're very significant. Obviously, it's not an agreement, and there's a lot of work to do. But when you think of a recent Afghan history where every transfer of power has been at the end of a barrel of a gun The fact that they're deciding to talk. I think it's important and these air talks that are aimed to shape the Afghani political future. And so in that sense, I do think they're historic, but again, lots of difficulties that lie ahead. So what specifically is being talked about things like a ceasefire. So yeah, there's probably three key issues that are on the agenda. First is the one you mentioned a permanent cease fire. And obviously this is critical because the people of Afghanistan have suffered for many, many years and, you know, folks have died and been injured there. But the key point is a framework again for the governance of political governance of Afghanistan for the future of the Taliban, police said. They want an Islamic form of government What that means is unclear. But the tension there is issues of social equality, particularly for women and ethnic minorities. In Afghanistan, you might remember just 20 years ago, right women were not allowed to participate in politics. They weren't allowed to go to school. They weren't even allowed to leave the house without a male relative. And so these kinds of issues this tension and how it's resolved again peacefully in the context of discussions. That's what's critical and the forcing function here. Of course, is that The U. S and its allies are going to pull out. Troops have agreed to pull out troops, frankly as a condition of these peace talks by the spring of 2021. So that's the window in which they have to try to resolve this and those with the tension that they have to try to resolve.

"Get to eat their food meat. You'd hate immigrants the immigrant food and when I say no immigrant you know immigrant food. Nothing no Mexican food no carribean food. No Dominican food no Asian food. Nothing only potatoes. Trevor Noah is also an author last year. He adapted his twenty-six born crime stories from a South African childhood for young young readers. It's about growing up in South Africa during and just after apartheid with the black mother and white father I spoke with Trevor Noah about it last June and he explained why why he thinks young Americans should know about apartheid. Well you know one thing I enjoyed. When I was growing up in South Africa was in our schools? We learned about world history. You know so we learned about American history we learned about you know the French history. We learned about what happened. In Russia we learned about Europe we learned about about Africa. We learned about South Africa. And so for me. I think learning about history gives you some context. It gives you an idea of what the world was like. It also gives you an idea idea of where the world has gone to in comparison to the Pasta and so for me. You know if you read stories from South Africa if you read about apartheid you come to realize is that racism oppression on unique ideas to America first of all and you also start to realize that it's a it's an all too common Idea you know or common theme that that that happens all around the world and what has your own experience made you realize about the racism in this country dreaming just in the last few years. We've had CHARLOTTESVILLE. Virginia we've had the shooting at the the Black Church in Charleston Even the president calling a black member of Congress low IQ. What do you think about the level of racism in America today? I think it's it's it's Unfortunately you you know part of the fabric of the over the country you know South African America have very similar histories in that fundamentally the beginnings of the countries as we know them Came from place in time when people had certain views about people of a different skin color and so that that has that has traveled through time and that has translated translated into laws and policies that have affected you know black people in America black people in South Africa so for me. What's interesting is is seeing what similarities? They are but also noticing what differences though you know we. We have the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and that in many ways quelled any ideas that this never never happened or it wasn't as bad as it was laid out to be and I think that does something for a nation. It puts you in a place where you you can't be gaslight it anymore Whereas in America it does feel like this conversation about is there racism as opposed to? How do you begin moving forward as a nation to get rid of the racism that has in many ways defined how people react with one another across racial barriers in in the US? Do you think it's gotten worse or better in this country since you've been in the US why that's that's a tough question to answer. You know I think some people will think it's gotten worse and I'm careful to jump to that assumption. I think we've gotten more access to information and so you know. Sometimes sometimes the curves of facts versus information can go against each of them. I definitely think America has gotten better over time. You know for anybody to say that twenty twenty nine. Racism is as bad as nineteen sixties. Racism I think is being a little disingenuous I do think however social media you know camera phones owns etc have given us so much more access to these stories. Now you know you can watch a video of of someone being berated by their boss and the boss's using the N.. Word in the office office or being shot by police officer two. Yeah you'd see an unarmed person being shot by police officer you would never see that before it was a. It was a story where you know. The police could present the facts however they wished and that would probably be the end of the conversation. So I think we live in a world where now we're getting information on a different scale and Processing that information can often mean that even though the world may have gotten better gradually over time we now inundated with information that tells us otherwise you talk about how when you were a child because you were half white and half black. You had a difficult time deciding which group you belong and you've been moved into different school classes to be with black students because you felt more comfortable there than with the white students. Do you have more clarity now about who you are. I think as human beings we're always trying to find out who we are sometimes the the simplest Distinctions wants to make of those that run along color lines for myself. It was interesting being in a country. Where the Lord defined me as one race? I grew up in a different race and for so long. People wanted to define me as as whatever they wanted to define me as and so you know. I think that clarity for me came from understanding my existence and then looking at the world around me and I didn't do it in a negative way. It wasn't in protest or anything. It was just me understanding where I belonged and who I was you know because South Africa many people were faced with a choice they could choose to aspire to racial group that we were told was better so then maybe the one we were and so I think it was liberating for myself to realize that although the government had tried to define me as one race you know I- comfortably identified with end was a black person and that doesn't seem you know. It seems like an obvious thing. Maybe but when you grew up in South Africa you realize how complicated it could actually. Bb Can you believe that given your upbringing and all the things that you went through you are now where you are now. Oh No I. I don't take that for granted ever but I I. I like to think that I am the product of a world of impossibilities. You know my my mother is where she should have never been. You know I I think my mother made great leaps than I've ever made. It's just that her leaps will made within her world and so and so maybe don't seem as grand but I think you know. Oh my family my my myself my country I come from a place where we have achieved the impossible you know. A bloodless revolution shifting of power from from from a minority to majority without there being a mass bloodletting. I think is a is really impossible stories to tell one that hasn't really been replicated. It anywhere else so yeah I think I've I've come from a world where anything is possible and so for myself. I never thought I'd be here because I didn't even know what here is but I was lucky enough to grow up in space where I was always told about what was possible. So you know. There's a beautiful quote that I read the other day. which was would you rather know what is real or would you rather know what's possible and I think for me? The latter informed how I live my life as you know There are a lot of people who actually get their news from the show that you do now. The daily show as they do from a lot of more comedic shows that take on issues in the news. What what do you think of the well? First of all what do you think of your responsibility in that sense right now to inform people I think I have a responsibility to my audience as much as I have a responsibility to myself. And that's that's really how I try and create the daily show. Is I try and be as informed as possible as a human being and then the show would hopefully be a manifestation manifestation of of that information and do you think the media right now are doing a good job in covering the news today. I think the media is too broad a term. You Know I. I think the curse of America's that entertainment news have bled into each other in such an extreme way. That you really con- tall the media with anyone brush trevor. No this has been an entirely too serious conversation between trevor known.

They can come home and be with their families. CBS news correspondent David Martin on the Syria. Pull out here originally said this would be a complete and immediate withdrawal. Now, he has changed to it will be a slow and deliberate withdrawal. And I think that probably more accurately reflects the conditions on the ground because as recently as as over Christmas. There has been some pretty intense fighting against ISIS and by US-backed forces in Syria. Trump says he has no plans at all to remove US troops from Iraq.
