"balochistan" Discussed on Today, Explained

"As a person there on the ground you have heard a lot from people who've been affected, tell me about a story or two a person or two, a family or two who have stayed with you. Yeah, so I spoke with this family who lives in a village called chalky Jamal. In the southwest province of balochistan, and they told me that all the mud baked homes in their village took had been washed away. So my name jamali was one of my sources. My arm was 7 years old when the 2010 floods took place. She's 19 now and her family associates water with trauma. And so when The Rain started in June, her family was in denial. They said the floods won't happen. There's no possibility that something similar to what happened in 2010 could potentially occur again. And so they were the last to evacuate and her elderly grandmother was the last person in their family to leave. She was eventually evacuated on a tractor. Her grandmother every day she asks her when they're going back. But there's no going back because of the home no longer exists. I spoke to this other gentleman who is in a town called Les Bala, which is also in the province of balochistan, and he told me that the graveyards are inundated, and so if someone passes away, there's no place to bury them. Which is just, it's horrifying. I mean, in these situations in disaster situations, people do need they do need someone to blame, who are folks blaming. Yeah, so to a large extent, focus on ground are blaming the Pakistani government for the catastrophe that has taken place. Some flood victims, like mariam Jamal, in fact, who live in areas that were flooded by the 2010 super flood, are now questioning why more wasn't done in the past decade to fled their communities resilient housing wasn't encouraged. And why the government poured in all their money into building mega projects like dams that essentially did nothing to prevent the floods from taking place. What is the government now saying it's going to do for people who've been affected? The immediate promise is that they'll be given some sort of relief in terms of in terms of payments, right? But apart from that, nothing. And folks that have been on ground receiving age have primarily been receiving aid from nonprofits. And from mutual aid networks, they're the folks that are on ground that are going from village to village. And door to door. And documenting what's happening. Okay, so that's what the government is promising Pakistanis who've been affected at the same time, what is the Pakistani government saying to the international community? So the international community, they're essentially saying we will certainly learn from our experience, but I think the global community should stand by us today. They weren't climate reparations from the global north, specifically from countries that have a larger carbon footprint and that contribute more to emissions. When countries like mine are affected in the front line of climate disasters, one after another, despite a poor planning. I mean, that's a separate issue, that does not cause the heat waves that trigger so many of our cataclysms and catastrophes, including and their argument for this is that Pakistan contributes less than 1% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. And that they deserve compensation for the loss and damage incurred as a consequence. Does Pakistan have a strong case for climate reparations? A pretty strong case in my opinion, right? Because Pakistan's among the countries most vulnerable to climate change, it faces a rate of warming considerably above global average, where the potential rise of 1.3 to 4.9°C by the 2090s. And the economy and the people of this country are suffering and they need this all the assistance they can get. One of the main voices calling for reparations comes from the minister of climate change, sheri Rahman. How is the international community been responding to what she's been saying? So there haven't been any immediate responses as per my knowledge, but there isn't existing trend of rich countries not pledging money to adapt to climate shocks. And expressing reluctance to engage in meaningful negotiations about financing loss and damage suffered by countries like Pakistan that have contributed negligibly to emissions. The annual UN climate change talks are going to take place in Egypt and November where Pakistan is planning on pushing hard for polluters to pay up after a year of devastating drought, floods, heat waves, forest fires, you name it. Coming up, a former ambassador from Pakistan to the U.S. tells us whether he thinks this push for reparations will work. Hey, it's Amanda llewellyn. I'm a producer on today explained. A little while back, some friends and I started joking that it seems like every single show on streaming services these days is a sequel, or a spin off, or a certain dragon themed prequel. And I wanted to know why that is. And whether we're doomed to a future with zero original content. So I call that my colleague Peter Kafka, who's been covering the economics of streaming for years now. And I made an episode about it. And I can do that in part because of contributions from listeners like you. This month, vox is aiming to add 5000 contributors to the community supporting our journalism.

Thanks for your support, and thanks for listening. Hey folks, I want to tell you about another show that I have heard is amazing. It's called this is love. It's a podcast that takes a very broad view of love, sharing stories, not just about romance, but also about people doing strange things that mean a lot to them, like someone who digs up old, backyard outhouses, to find hidden treasure, and a group of people desperately trying to keep one type of tree alive. Some of the stories are really funny. There's an episode about a guy who puts on a huge pair of fake feet and makes tracks up and down the beach, he spends decades fooling his neighbors, and some of the stories are heartwarming. They have won about a man who found a baby on a subway platform. Listen for stories about love and all of the surprising forms it can take. You can subscribe to this is love wherever

"Santiago. It was a big setback for the left wing president Gabriel borich, who assumed office in March and who had backed the new document. Admitting defeat, he said he would listen to what the people want. I promise to do everything I can to build together with Congress and civil society, a new constituent itinerary that will provide us with a text that gathering the lessons learned from the process manages to interpret the views of a broad majority of citizens. I spoke to our South America correspondent Katie Watson a little earlier and asked her for her analysis of the vote in its result. In two years ago, chileans voted overwhelmingly for a new constitution nearly 80% of chileans said they wanted a new constitution, but this wasn't the constitution that the chileans wanted. So there were many concerns. It was a very, very broad draft, some 388 articles, there was criticism over some of the proposals, disagreements over the constituents that elected to draft it, and overall the trends decided though they want to I mean, they wanted to have a new constitution, but just not this one, and president Bowie has come out and said that the chileans have spoken strongly and clearly, but he is not deterred. He says that he's going to throw himself into building a new constitutional process that will bring together what chileans have learned and his ask for everybody to join him on this and he's going to be meeting with party leaders. First thing on Monday to discuss the steps ahead. Yeah, he strongly backed the new constitution. How much of a blow is this defeat for him? He spoke of cabinet changes coming. I think it's a huge blow. I mean, he's a former student leader. He really rose to the top after the 2019 protests that started because of a rise in subway fares, but went on to encompass demands right across the board that especially demands of inclusion of better access to education, to healthcare, to pensions, and Gabriel Boris was seen as a real champion of trying to change Chilean society. So he's really back this from the very beginning. And I think he's going to have a really tough job on his hands because this vote was also seen by many as a referendum on his leadership, if you like, and of course, with chiles, future now uncertain. I think a lot of people will be looking at him to see whether he's the man for the job and can take Chile through this. But it's not a backing for the old constitution. People still don't want to go back to the days of Pinochet, do they? No, and I think that's what the vote two years ago demonstrated the referendum on whether they wanted a new constitution and nearly 80% of chileans said they did, but it's getting to the nitty Gritty of exactly what they want in that constitution and how they can make a constitution that allows for all children to be happy. I think the message was that she learns what changed they're just didn't want the change that this constitution was bringing. Our South America correspondent Casey Watson. The monsoon flooding in Pakistan has now left more than 1300 people dead with 24 of those deaths recorded in the past day. Thunderstorms and isolated outbreaks of heavy rain are expected in river catchment areas in the north of the country, and that means more trouble in the south as the water flows towards the two worst affected provinces Sindh and Baluchistan. In Baluchistan, many districts remain cut off after roads and bridges were swept away. The BBC's farhat Chavez has been out on a Pakistani army rescue mission there. Shocked, shattered and starving. The fight for survival gets harder. Abbas and his cousin have just been rescued from a village that has been cut off for days. The rains destroyed everything, then all my equipment was washed away by the flood. My house was raised to the ground. I still have the key of my shop. I don't have the courage to throw it away. It was my bread and butter. This is the province of balochistan, almost half the country's total land and the least developed. Fields usually used as farmland now completely submerged in water. And people run after 8, even if it means putting their lives in

"I'm Diane pan with you and news. Amid catastrophic flooding in Pakistan, UN humanitarians have raced to offer support to the government in the crucial early days of the relief effort. Beyond the immediate challenge of reaching all those stranded by the high waters, fears remain about next season's harvest if the waters do not recede in time for planting, with more has the UN World Food Program's country director for Pakistan, Chris K, who has been talking to UN news Daniel Johnson. The good news is that it's not raining. It hasn't been raining for the past three days. The bad news is that the floodwaters that came down the Indus are now beginning to swell the flooded areas and the bottom end of the Indus Valley. So the situation for many people who are already stranded isn't getting any easier. And it's also creating further challenges in terms of our ability to access those people. People aren't embankments and camping on the side of roads. Unfortunately, that situation remains. And I think it's going to look as though it's going to stay that way for a couple more days yet. Goodness me, I know that we've had reports of many lorries being abandoned in the maldon highways and you've already talked about families being stranded on embankments with very little I assume to keep them going. So how are you getting to them? Well, the front end of the response is actually with the government. You know, this is the reason why the UN launched its flash appeal yesterday is to be able to get the resources so that we can contribute and support the government in its efforts. So whilst the World Food Program has been operational, we've been providing food assistance to people in balochistan over the course of the last three weeks when the floods really started kicking in over there. We had limited operational capability and send. From the government side, they have been extraordinary in terms of the mobilization of their own resources and notably through their social protection scheme, which is a nationwide cash distribution mechanism, which has been providing again before the floods for the poorest of the poor, and which now they've opened up and they've expanded in order to accommodate those people who are affected by the floods. The challenge as it is with us being able to get food to people is for people to access that cash. And even when they can, can they buy anything in the market? So the mechanisms are around and about, but just like every other emergency in the world, the real challenge is in these early two or three days or so in the immediate aftermath of actually being able to get the operation from stuttering start into fully fledged smooth operation. We're not there yet. That's the issue, isn't it getting help quickly in the immediate days before people make bad choices. So I know the World Food Program has the UN humanitarian air service at its disposal. Is it the case that access is so difficult, you're going to have to use helicopters? Well, the government is already using helicopters. The government has already been providing its own air assets using its own air assets to get food parcels and aid to stricken communities. They have not asked and we have offered for additional support from Anne Haas. Obviously, that's a very expensive undertaking in any case. You know, the challenge is we were very concerned in preparing our flash appeal in the kind of acknowledgment that the world is strapped right now. The crisis in Ukraine, inflation, the economic downturn is all contributing to I think a tightening evade budgets and a real limitation in terms of what finances can be brought forward. So far, the appeal is relatively modest. It's a 160 million. Given the magnitude of the crisis, but the response yesterday at the launch is encouraging, I'm glad to say. And I hope that that money will begin to flow, not into WFP, but outer WP in terms of food assistance and delivery in the field. That flash appeal, as you say, launched on Tuesday for $160 million, but that's only for 6 months, but I guess the immediate priority is getting to people who have emergency needs and there are many millions of them, at least while it's thought a thousand people have died and many more injured, 2000 miles of roads and 100 bridges damaged or destroyed and people's bank their livestock at 800,000 or so of perished, and crops as well I was going to ask you, you know, what's the likelihood of there being any sort of harvest later on this year? Yeah, that's absolutely the biggest concern. I mean, it's one thing is to be able to respond to the immediate needs and that in itself is challenging. But certainly looking beyond the impact that this is going to have in terms of the overall food security in Pakistan is really, really concerning. You know, 43% of people in Pakistan have already been classified as food insecure. Pakistan ranks as 92 out of a 116 nations on the global hunger index. So whilst it produces quite a significant amount of food itself in a good year, the bottom line is much of that food doesn't get to a fair proportion of its people. Looking further down the line in terms of harvest, certainly the amount of cropping land that has been destroyed, which is not necessarily going to drain away in time for planting for the next harvest is going to have a huge impact on available food stocks next year. Food stocks that we did have in the country from the harvest this year have been washed away. So it's just one thing compounding over the next, which is really the prognosis in terms of overall food security and in Pakistan. As I say for 2023 is really, really worrisome..

"Is an author of send and around me is just water, water, and more water, there's not much dry land to be found. We've suffered a devastating monsoon. I don't even want to call it sort of floods from the sky that have been ongoing since the end of June and now we're up to the end of August. These monsoons have had devastating effects on balochistan since south Punjab and the province of Sindh has been the most affected with 23 of our 30 districts being declared calamity hit so far and I'm sure there are numbers have increased since I was given these numbers with apparently 33 million households have been affected, affected, displaced, to put that in some contact. We think about partition. I don't believe we crossed the 20 million mark then. It is a catastrophe on a scale that I have never seen before when we've experienced floods and monsoons of historic proportions before, but this is really engulfed to solve. Yeah, well I mean, there was this huge amount of international coverage of the floods in 2010. But are you saying that this is even worse? These are much worse, actually. There were floods in 2010 and in 2011. And those floods, I mean, if we just data fact either the right bank of the Indies or the left bank of the universe, the specific districts, the riverine areas, where the badly affected, but we could, you know, mobilize our resources from other areas, concentrate them in the affected areas and despite the devastation of the operation around those flood reliefs efforts were by and large successful. The difficulty we face at this point in time is that this is affected both the right bank and the left bank of the Indus. Many, many districts are affected by affected. I mean, inundated by water. These are significantly larger floods than before. And we're still bracing ourselves because the Kabul river is in large and we're seeing horrific scenes from northern Pakistan at the floods coming down and we worry. Obviously because we're situated here in the south and all the water and all the floods from the north come down Arab areas. And our resources of everything from tents to medicines are completely stretched. Our human resources are exhausted. Our bureaucrats are rescue teams who've been working since late June and every single spell. And their own houses, their own offices, everything has been affected and devastated by this, but at the moment we're still in a rescue and relief phase of an ongoing calamity catastrophe and once we get out of the rescue and relieve phase, we can start thinking about reconstruction and rehabilitation. Is this one of those situations where, you know, you're a minister in a civilian government, a senior minister and a civilian government. And is this one of those occasions when you just have to rely on the army, however much you'd rather not, because they can do it? I think that everywhere across the world, whether if you look at the images of the Katrina in the United States anywhere where you see a national calamity of this scale, you'd have to rely on army and other forces. We're not only counting on an army, but also on our navy to add on to the efforts that are ongoing. The scale of it, I feel like all the terms don't do justice to this extent of this catastrophe. Well, maybe one way to bring it home is just to give us an individual case I mean you. Have a lot of people. It's your electoral base. You're very close to the people in that particular part of Pakistan. What have you heard about the plight of a family maybe or a particular situation? These are not sort of abstract, statistics, these are people that we know either are relatives or associates or colleagues or people that I've seen my entire lives, their villages, destroyed their houses, are destroyed just for my own home district of larkana. When I arrived before the last massive three day spell of rain, I was told that 80,000 families in our one district were displaced and to put that into context, our policy and our policy thus far has been one ten per family, but the entire province is stock for tents. I think 90,000 tenths at the time were ordering with procuring but every day. Everything we find is just not enough. They're not enough tents. Everybody's the government's providing food and rations. People are in their individual capacity. Have their kitchens running around the clock to try and provide food to those who've been affected, but we feel it's so desperate because we feel like whatever we do is not enough supply is not meeting the demand. They're only income. They're agriculture income is completely devastated. With 80% of crops in my province be affected, I'm sure it's much the same in South Bend job. We all agricultural agriculture based economies. You know, we faced the COVID pandemic. We faced the 2010, 2011 floods I've never felt so un overwhelmed by the sheer scale of this tragedy. I mean, I just wonder how you deal with the individually. You know, you come from a big important family, you know, a wealthy family, and you're surrounded by people who are in desperate straits. I mean, what happens when the head of a household comes to you and says, sir, I am completely finished here. What do you say to them? We're actually going to them ourselves. We're trying visiting relief camps and areas where people have managed to gather. We are assuring them about we're here for them in their difficult time. We've called on the national media and international media, giving us a coverage to this climate catastrophe, as you mentioned in 2010 and 11, we had that this time, what I'm really, really grateful for is the social safety net, the Benazir income support program that was set into place in our previous government. That's the one vehicle through which the federal government is managing to provide direct cash support to flood effects. But it's just not enough. You're the foreign minister. You have some rich allies, Saudi Arabia, the United States, China, which ones delivering. As in we're launching a UN flash appeal from Tuesday, but already our neighbors and countries across the world are reaching out and it's not only expressing solidarity, but providing assistance to Pakistan and we really do. Welcome all in any assistance that we've got so far. If there's one thing I'd like to emphasize through you to everybody who wants to pitch in and help this effort that one number one requirement right now are tense. And that's something we find that we are very short on. So if anybody wants to help out. So that's an area where we do need the assistance. I think just the province of sand alone requires a million tanks and people are still sheltered because as I said before, the supply and demand issues that we're having, then going forward, probably focusing on rations and medicines and because this water is going to stay. I mean, in other areas, perhaps in the north, there's the devastation of the flood where it passes. But here in send our geography is such that the floods are coming because they have a station, but in much of the areas the water stagnates and remains there for many months to come. So for which we would have to worry about water bone diseases and other medical issues they could arise from those. And that was the foreign minister of Pakistan, Bilal Bhutto sadari.

"It's 1510 in Beijing that's 7 ten here in London and we turn now to Pakistan's relationship with China as Imran Khan arrives in Beijing today for the Winter Olympics, an event that's been boycotted by western governments. While in China, the Pakistani president will meet president Xi Jinping and Premier League Chang. Well, joining me now for more on this is Isabel Hilton, the CEO of China dialog. It's about lovely to have you on the program again. Western diplomats are not attending the games because of human rights abuses committed by China. What does Imran Khan said about the suppression of the Uyghurs? Imran Khan has said exactly nothing about the suppression of the Uyghurs in China. And in that, I have to say, he just, you know, he's pretty much in line with a lot of influential figures in Pakistan. And his predecessor. So the relationship between Pakistan and China is extremely close. And it is one of the paradoxes of that relationship that a country which has such a strong Islamic identity should be silent about Xinjiang. But that has always been the case, even in the military. Well, let's explore that relationship a little bit more because of course the countries have had diplomatic relations for 70 years now. They have, and they're extremely close. I mean, both sides describe this as absolutely fundamental and very close relationship. And Pakistan has had to balance over time its relationship with the United States, which whose attention has come and gone from the Pakistani perspective depending on what interest the United States was trying to pursue or defend in the region. And the relationship with China, which is dependent on both geography and on the mutual antagonism between Pakistan, China and India. The major rival of both of them and Pakistan certainly fields that China is an essential counterbalance to India. And Pakistan serves China's purposes by keeping Indian attention strategic attention pinned down with Pakistani activity and leaving China quite a lot of quite a lot of room to breathe. But the whole situation has changed rather dramatically. In recent times, because of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, which has destabilized the region one more time. Let's talk about that because I wonder how the partnership impacts on the wider region, particularly as you say, the instability on Pakistan's border in Afghanistan. Well, there are a number of quite big factors to remember. One is that the belt and road initiative launched in 2013 by Xi Jinping has as one of its major components, China, Pakistan, economic corridor, cpac. And that runs from western China down to a newly built or enlarged port of guarda. And it was meant to be is meant to be an energy corridor which allows the import of energy, oil from the gulf, to guardar, and then directly up to western China, thus cutting out the vulnerabilities involved in crossing the South China Sea and various pinch points on the way. So that's been extremely important. But it also crosses balochistan, which is a province of Pakistan in which there has been active insurgency against Islamabad for many years. So it's a security headache just on its own and Chinese workers have been subject to attacks from baloch insurgents. So it was already a problem. With the collapse of the regime in Afghanistan, which has always been a major interest. Pakistan military had a doctrine of strategic depth which argued that should India ever invade Pakistan. Pakistan needed Afghanistan as a place of retreat and resistance. So it's been absolutely central to Pakistan's security doctrine for decades. The difficulty, of course, is that it has been extremely unstable ever since the Russian invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. Pakistan supported the Taliban. The Pakistan hosts the biggest Afghan refugee groups and the Taliban essentially emerged from those. With the support of the Pakistani intelligence in order to maintain Pakistan's interests in Afghanistan. So you might think that the arrival in power of the Taliban would be welcome. But of course, the Taliban are not actually in control of Afghanistan. And we have seen the emergence of more radical groups that see as enemies both Pakistan and the Taliban. So the security situation has if anything worsened. And of course, China has real money in the game now. This corridor is very, very important. And that security situation is likely to come up in the bilateral meeting with China's leaders. What else do you think will be on the table? There are reports in Pakistani press that in mankind is also seeking a further loan of some 4 billion dollars from China. And that's the other rather contentious aspect of the relationship that cpec is being built and guard the port is being developed. But the financial arrangements for this investment are remained extremely opaque, and even senior officials in Pakistan have complained that they don't know the terms of these loans. They don't know the terms of the contracts. And when Pakistan gets into economic difficulties, which it does fairly regularly and seeks loans, for example, from the IMF, the IMF tend to hang back because Pakistan won't tell them what the state of indebtedness is to China and what the terms of those loans are. So the IMF doesn't want to pour money into Pakistan only to see it used to repay Pakistani loans to China. So the dependence of Pakistan and China has grown really quite seriously, they were able to balance the United States over time with China, although China always remained the bigger the bigger player. But now I think that the concern is that Pakistan is so dependent on China for any kind of financial refreshment, let alone the security relationship that it will never get out of it and China will be able to call the shots in Pakistan in ways that will generate resentment and resistance in Pakistan at the moment Pakistan doesn't seem to have a choice if it needs money, where is it going to go? Now, of course, we know that Imran Khan is a former world class sportsman, a cricketer, and this visit does coincide.

Is there any specific dimensions that you think you arrived on off your own volition versus the being trust on you versus another dimension of your identity that you still grappling with my creative tendencies. I i would. I think are the ones that i feel most That are most embedded within me. Now you know i have. I'm a musician because my parents you know. Listen to music growing up you know. It's obviously if it wasn't for them like supporting me You know in in piano lessons and guitar and like having this incredible you know collection of music. You know like that's definitely one sided but in terms of every time i have taken some time away from it and come back to it. It's it's almost like a coming home for me. So i'm somebody that has struggled with definitely like going through months where i just like. I just don't feel connected to music or you know i feel like I dunno And then you know it's something that a lot of i think musicians go through as far as like you know putting out a ton of stuff from it'd be like doing a big tool or doing some concerts and then just kind of like take a step back and being like You know like. I feel like maybe i'm not. I'm not as good as as curious as i was when i was younger. But then then something else comes up. I started a few years ago. Learning how to play the rubab which is a really important instrument to my father so my father is actually from quake to even though the family has been job heritage and stuff so he's from done balochistan and so by way of afghanistan and so for me to like play that instrument particularly and. I'm not that great at it like i didn't take formal lessons from an assad or whatever like i just like kinda fucked around on youtube and try to figure out how to tune it and everything but like for me when i play that instrument And i can. I get lost in it like. That's that's like a meeting of a lot of all these different things because to me. It just feels like you know. Yeah i can plug in electric guitar and play concert and and do a whole like big loud thing. Whatever but for me just like playing this particular instrument you know when it's quiet And there's nobody home And it's just me. And i can kind of close my eyes and be transported to like you know maybe i think of quite When i used to go as a kid or Or or just you know. I feel like that's music and the creative stuff is definitely something that is embedded within me so i am ethnically baton to be honest. That's part of my identity that only becomes visible when i go to pakistan and when i'm reminded of that identity in the us it's not really part of my consciousness. Now it's becoming less relevant but talking about your bob. That's my favorite instruments. I don't know how to play it. Of course but i remember when we were trying to find intro music background music for immigrants. I you know wanted that instrument somehow included in the music. But i couldn't explain it to anyone. It was so difficult to tell them what i wanted. And i was sending them these youtube videos and they didn't really know what i was trying to Get at but such a cathartic. I guess instrument in a way and or maybe i feel it because i feel some kind of connection to it. Yeah yeah yeah. One of my fa-. I don't do no guy. Sr have you heard of him. He is. I think the the most prominent american of connie player. He's he's a few years younger than me. He's out in he's based in arizona but he send you his music so i think he's. He's he's the one that he actually ended up showing me how to Tune it properly in like changes because basically my had brought the rubab for me To two years ago. I begged my cousin omar to fight. He's kind of the the my kinda dude in the family and he. He ended up finding this store of this Rabab maker and our and then they basically drove the thing from push our to slama bod and then from lahore and then ama- literally brought it to boston on her lap. She was like you. Only for this. Because i i wouldn't put because it's so delicate. I love her bob. So let's talk about your music. You a founding member of the comedians. And you've discussed how the mainstream native of your band seemed to center around islam..

Baluchistan has been a troubled of bacchus son. But this is a country that has had a troubled relationship with democracy. The problem has been concentrated in balochistan a largely because it has been denied basic democratic rights. The situation has grown even more fraught over the last few years because of a deal. Pakistan has with china a port in baluchistan called wasser. Port is a crucial final link in a new network of highways and railways. That would connect china to the arabian sea through pakistan. Buxton recently said it would erect a barbed wire fence around the ten square mile area. That makes up quater port.

"Pakistan also came forward and said that india was funding the balochistan liberation army which operates in afghanistan and the balochistan is it is for context. It's like a region in western pakistan. It's it's like one of the bigger ones that little like loop you see off the side of paxton staff Is so the books liberation armies about six thousand soldiers in their separatist group and they've been known to carry out attacks on pakistani soil in again are described the location but this is the book liberation armies recognized as a terrorist group by pakistan by the united kingdom. Invite united states. So it certainly not it. Certainly not a very peaceful group of pakistan saying His we don't like satis that pakistan does not like they don't like these people They are like the blog stands just like turkey. Doesn't like the kurds trying to get separatism and just like the russians don't like all these all these separatist groups in in siberia in southeastern russia like in Bosc across iraq. So you see all this different stuff going on in the country has to deal separatist groups. They tend not to be very big fanta and especially do not like wet their enemy earlier countries that border do not recognize the separatist groups as as a terrorist group. India does not recognize the bookstand liberation armies a terrorist group. So all of this comes before. Twenty twenty one. That's when india will begin his two year term sitting on the security council has everyone kind of rotates they'll go off and so india the twenty twenty one. They're getting admitted. They got two years to sit on that soon. Have a seat on the council and just hero these problems. I don't think that they're gonna like these accusations from pakistan very much but paxton they don't like to access from india neither of them like the accusations against each other really. I couldn't imagine why it's it's it's a doozie. So let's move on Interesting to countries powers. Nuclear powers cues each other terrorism. That's always fun But you'll who to other enemies are north south koreans. If you guys haven't heard north and south korea. They also do not like each other that much. In fact the the they're mixed in hate each other just a little. But this doesn't have to do the government as much as the fact that a person from north korea defected. And i know i know over thirty. Three thousand people in history have been have defected from north to south korea's allies the so special In if you're thinking what. I was just thinking which i assume you were Everybody can read your mind exactly if you if you were thinking that. Well i agree. So let's so interesting about this. Well this guy. He jumps across the border. Usually what happens right is people will like kenneth sneak across. They'll take a little boat. They'll go shore They'll find some creative late at this guy. He's there's no sneaking for him. there's absolutely no sneaky. This guy is a former gymnasts and he decided we're just gonna jump across the border earlier saying right like isn't the border supposed jump proof. Well it is. Like for example. I i would not see for me. The borders jumpers for in the borders jumpers. Especially for it for me. He's not the for before this man a little bit less jumper or it is yes. Let's geography is. This guy was a gymnast. So how the border. She loves his you. Have you have one fence of one side. North korean border One fence on the south korean border. And then you have this. No man's land in the middle in. It's ten feet wide this guy. He's on the north side. He leaps across to the other side of the border. I'll ten feet any lands on other side So normally normally you know you're not supposed to be ten feet. Seems a little bit weird So that's why the border is usually works. Pretty well this he. He knew he could do it and he did. It did it. so This is quite a big story because it doesn't happen well. I don't ever happened where someone just leave to. Across the border like that So what what do we know about this guy. well We know that he was a gymnast. Like i said but we also know that he was in his late twenties so you it's not like he's not he's not he still young but he's not. He's not the prime of his life. Right suck niece's twenties says twice. yeah late twenties. So which south. Korean officials went to investigate the fast. Check of lydia the validity of the story. Because they're not going to believe jumped over mid east is trying to get some Subsidies from government. he's just lazy doesn't wanna work right Just just want says it. Look if i can just say. I'm a defector from north korea. Government will just because they love the south. Korean government loves when defectors ilab to just shower them with money given the best life Teach them their culture because it looks good for them. The pr purposes So scott can be line. I had to check it out. It's so they want to go check the validity of the story and they did not find any cuts in the fence that they did see that. The defense was noticeably. Press down so someone was standing on it. So there you go above the story against actually been confirmed this with the guys claiming the authorities there the investigations going on right now that this seems more more legit as the day goes on but here is where the controversy comes a little bit. this guy. He crossed the border. Took the soldiers fourteen hours to find the guy And this is bad because this is directed a lot of criticism towards this half korean military as well. How could some across the border knock it. Detected in an also stayed there for fourteen hours lil also not getting detected. So that's walled american leap over a fence. I'm sure he can disappear and gone visible. probably he's clearly superman. Maybe but by. So the question is none of their sensors. There there's cameras were about the soldiers. Patrolling it see any that none of pick the sky up he just teaches snuck across. We're about the north korean soldiers at the famous story of that north korean soldier who defected a few years ago. When she got in his car he just drove as fast as he could towards the border. South korean border in north korea soldiers attorney opened fire on all sides on the on the car..

A turkish ship to libya is forcibly stopped by the german navy at the leader of a right-wing party in the netherlands steps down for racism. This is the role that large had. We are politics. One thousand one. Hello everybody and welcome to another episode of the world at large end in america. right now. Tomorrow this thanksgiving in you know what that means. We say what we're thankful for. And i for one. In thankful for josh for summing up the news for me every wednesday in. You don't have to say that but you know Would i'm thankful for And insightful for me. i'm also thankful for me but besides myself i'm also thankful I'm also thankful for our followers trinidad and tobago of for putting us on the list in their country. So thank you guys. Shout out to your country beautiful country of various on the list number two on the list. The entire country means above the bbc cnn new york times. All all of them. So we thank you guys for listening to the podcast Your country sperry awesome. That we know you guys are listening. I'm going to make a goal of mine. Four the end of the year to try to do a story on trinidad and tobago so With that in mind. I'm glad you guys. I i get very thankful move on now because we have a lot to talk about that includes pakistan and india both deciding that they wanna make a little bit of a fuss in the united nations. So what does that mean. Well both india and pakistan have submitted dossiers on each other In a dossier case you don't know is a series of documents or just try. Try to sum up. It's like a report them. So the pakistani un ambassador muneer akram submitted one on india terrorism while the indian one just a day earlier before the pakistani ones submitted one a pakistani terrorism in kashmir so. What's happening here is india. One paxton no like very much. So pakistan does one also star no like so it In case if you guys wanna get like terrorism reports submitted on you then just some one on someone else. And they'll retaliated. They'll return the favor lesson for life. There you go. So the pakistani government has made it very clear that they want to keep the contents of the document which they submitted the dossier very secret. They wanna keep it to a minimum till it's presented before the un terror committee. However we know that it was actually submitted because while the pakistani government will buy a crime actually talked about the on twitter. He said quote. Today i met with. Un secretary general asked in tonio guitarist and handed over the dossier from the government of pakistan. I will detail the to the press on his contents later so very interesting berridge day indeed so he submitted this again because he's try see that india is the wanted actually actually foster terrorism in this region you see. India is the one who's funding all these separatist groups. They're creating all these all this drama in kashmir cashmere is where india is doing all evils. It fact they are trying to distract us from the actual purpose of the humanitarian crisis. That's going on which we will talk about in a second. But first we need to know that the un did assure pakistan. They will review the documents when the next council meets They will go over them. I'm assuming over the. Do you want to ferghana review. Compare them they're going see look it's contents actually legit. So what was the indian response to this will. India was not very happy they do not itchy. I was just trying to submit a report. Apac steady terrorism in pakistan has deemed nerve. The gall to submit one back. India no happy. It is not happy either as ian set. This is where all attention stemming from because indian paxton do not tend to get along very well so you know instead of sort of take out our hates on each other in public speeches militarily luscious bolsa more submit reports to the united nations settled there. So this comes again. After the indian submission in the indian spokespersons the us rejected. these accusations. Swiftly brushed them off. The statement was also released by the indian government in they. An quote pakistan could cry horse from the rooftops but they could not change the fact that they are the epicenter of terrorism. Their allies have no takers. And then the indian ambassador to the u. n. t. s. too. Marty said this. Also coding documents and pedley. False narratives is not new to pakistan host to the world's largest number of un prescribed harris entities. So you guys can see paxton. India love each other a lot. Not very thankful for each other day. Let's you they do not they do not want to be thankful for each other on thanksgiving like we are for trinidad and tobago. In fact they're quite the opposite. They do not like each other they would be. They would much rather the other one not submit a report on how they sponsor terrorism. I i don't know why so india's accusations against pakistan and we're going to get into this is that the pakistani militants crossed into kashmir and fire on an indian spectrum team while they are on patrol. So there's like these tunnels that go in kashmir from pakistan in india saying well this four militants. They snuck under the border. Our our guys are brief. Soldiers of india. There are patrolling kashmir. Your guys opened fire on that that is terrorism is tough you. Doctors opened fire on our soldiers. It fatburger smith. Report on you to the un. The pakistan said. Well you're going to a report on that. We'll we're going to submit a report on you. So what did pakistan. India was also making these allegations but only as a way to distract the world from the actual problem and which is the indian repression of people in kashmir so pakistan. They are rejected but they are brushed it off They're just trying to say that. Might look out of you know what's even worse. We wouldn't have to do that. India was not occupying kashmir. India has suggested these people have taken away. Their electricity cut off internet access. India india is the real here in you need to understand that united nations so both countries they have their own little accusations with each other in us pakistan also came forward and said that india was funding the balochistan liberation army which operates in afghanistan and the balochistan is it is for context. It's like a region in western pakistan. It's it's like one of the bigger ones that little like loop you see off the side of paxton staff Is so.

"Luke Chapter One verses one through four inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who, from the beginning, were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us. It seemed good to me also having followed all things closely for some time past to write an orderly account for you most excellent theophilus the you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught. These are the words that Luke writes to open up his Gospel and there's so much here just to unpack. Think through as we get a glimpse into who is what Luke's purposes? Who He's writing, too, but the big picture I want to. Let lead us to pray. Today is luke. Realizing that, he has seen and heard things that he cannot keep to himself. He's saying other people have. told me things have shared things with me. I've talked with eye-witnesses and ministers of the word people who have walked with Jesus people who have seen Jesus do different things and I am undertaking. What turns into twenty four chapters of writing to let us Theophilus No, who Jesus is? What Jesus taught in how Jesus can change your life, I we have this whole book. That is obviously a huge benefit to us. Today has been for followers of Jesus for non-christians for that matter to learn about Jesus throughout centuries, but it was written in the very beginning for one person for Theophilus did the awfulness might know the truth about who Jesus says what Jesus Taught, and how just died on the cross, so that repentance and forgiveness in sensory proclaimed in all nations will get to that in Luke Chapter Twenty Four. But based on this introduction I just want to encourage you. Even as do the same thing in my own mind. Like, think about someone. In Your Life. Who needs to know who Jesus says? Who needs to know what Jesus taught? Who needs to know what Jesus did on the Cross? And, think through okay. Luke sat down. He wrote. A, whole letter as a Gospel account a story of Jesus. So what Mike God be calling you to do. For that person in your mind. Who needs to know about Jesus?

Use us to Spread Your Gospel - Luke 1:14

"Luke Chapter One verses one through four inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who, from the beginning, were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us. It seemed good to me also having followed all things closely for some time past to write an orderly account for you most excellent theophilus the you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught. These are the words that Luke writes to open up his Gospel and there's so much here just to unpack. Think through as we get a glimpse into who is what Luke's purposes? Who He's writing, too, but the big picture I want to. Let lead us to pray. Today is luke. Realizing that, he has seen and heard things that he cannot keep to himself. He's saying other people have. told me things have shared things with me. I've talked with eye-witnesses and ministers of the word people who have walked with Jesus people who have seen Jesus do different things and I am undertaking. What turns into twenty four chapters of writing to let us Theophilus No, who Jesus is? What Jesus taught in how Jesus can change your life, I we have this whole book. That is obviously a huge benefit to us. Today has been for followers of Jesus for non-christians for that matter to learn about Jesus throughout centuries, but it was written in the very beginning for one person for Theophilus did the awfulness might know the truth about who Jesus says what Jesus Taught, and how just died on the cross, so that repentance and forgiveness in sensory proclaimed in all nations will get to that in Luke Chapter Twenty Four. But based on this introduction I just want to encourage you. Even as do the same thing in my own mind. Like, think about someone. In Your Life. Who needs to know who Jesus says? Who needs to know what Jesus taught? Who needs to know what Jesus did on the Cross? And, think through okay. Luke sat down. He wrote. A, whole letter as a Gospel account a story of Jesus. So what Mike God be calling you to do. For that person in your mind. Who needs to know about Jesus? Maybe maybe this sitting down writing a letter email her may be actually a handwritten letter to them. Maybe it's calling them. Maybe it's taking them to eight socially distanced lunch or something along those lines. Whatever it might be. Let's just pray that God would use our lives as we know, and have seen the truth about Jesus and his word to make it known to people like the awfulness around us God. We praise you.

Prince on tour: Muhammad bin Salman

"Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is pivoting eastward this week. He's on a tour of Asia. Believe that San gonna be very very important country in the coming, and you want to be sure that part of that with stops in Pakistan, India and China the trip is a strategically important one for the prince he has had a very rocky six months. He's been accused of ordering the murder of dissident journalist, Joel shalt g in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul is father death has rocked relations between the west and Saudi Arabia. So this tour is a way of cleansing away some of the diplomatic opprobrium that is taxed to him in the west to Sean Joshi is our defense editor he is looking for friends who will happen focus on other more harmonious matters in Pakistan. He has a very pliant friend. But also India and China who will not obsess over Saudi Arabia's human rights record and will deal with him on more pragmatic basis, which is to say, they can talk oil. They can talk not just Oriel. Other types of investment regional security counter terrorism with India, particularly keen to get Saudi help on chasing up Pakistani wrongdoers, and they can talk missiles and strategic weapons with China. But in that region there is quite a lot going on. Let's take those sort of destinations one by one. He's already been to Pakistan. What are his ambitions? And what are the issues there? Well, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have historically been extremely close part of it for Pakistan is money. They are being squeezed towards the IMF for a bailout and Saudi Arabia has just agreed twenty billion dollars of investment agreements. Pakistan, also sends troops to Saudi Arabia to train with the Saudis. It has contributed forces to the campaign in Yemen. But of course, Pakistan, also neighbors Iran, which you Saudi Arabia's arch rival, so there's a lot more going on in terms of also containing Iran's influence, so what exactly was he trying to secure in Pakistan, one of the most important projects. He's looking at is. Funding a big oil refinery in the port of guava in Pakistan's Balochistan province, and that's important for a number of reasons right now, it's the centerpiece of China's economic corridor in Pakistan, so he's competing with Beijing. It's very near the Iranian port of Chabahar where India is investing. So he's competing with deady, but more importantly than all of that, Balochistan neighbors Iran, and so he is building a presence right next door to Iranian territory. There have been rumors that Saudi Arabia has funded groups in Balochistan, which is where gutter is located that have conducted attacks inside, Iran. So I think this is likely to be another step in the Saudi campaign to push back at Iran. I suppose I'm wondering why this visit might be so welcome on the part of all of these countries. If what he's doing his tipping into some pretty tricky, local dynamics kind of on all fronts in in every direction. Why isn't he viewed as kind of a destabilizing force? Well, I think the Indians will call. Where he is. Now, they historically might have seen Saudi Arabia as a stabilizing force supporting radical Islamist movements that were causing trouble in places like Kashmir and other parts of India. But in recent years, India has tried to reset its relationship with Saudi Arabia. It wants Saudi investment and it wants to coke Saudi Arabia away from Pakistan and officials in New Delhi or still reeling from last week's terror attack in Indian-administered Kashmir, which it blamed on Pakistan. Isn't that sort of complicating the dynamics I think it probably is. I think that India is focused on this terrible attack that took place the worst attack in Kashmir in decades, and this profound anger in India and desire among many people to take some sort of retaliatory military action now Mohammed bin Salman presence in Pakistan, first of all and then his visit to India has complicated that for the Indians. But I think what they will be doing is using the opportunity to try and say to him look, we know your close to package. Stan we know you'll building a relationship, but we are a bigger more important country. Don't you want to work with us and try and put pressure on the Pakistanis to end their support of terrorism? So quite the opposite. Then of everyone trying to shun him everyone instead wants his ear quite badly. I think that's right. I think that for the Chinese as well where he will be heading after India China will think well, here's an American ally. If we can give him weapons advanced technology, perhaps build economic ties his an opportunity to try and peel away another American ally and win one over the Americans. Do you suppose that this tour will accomplish its goal of kind of shaking off the shadow of the Jamaica Shoji affair, I think it will show the west that Saudi Arabia has other partners, and that will probably push some people to say, look, we can't stop talking about kashogi. But we have to be aware that Saudi Arabia is an important partner. Indeed, only in the last week British. Officials have been complaining that German arms export ban on Saudi Arabia has grounded its fleet of typhoon fighter jets. So people already worried that some of the pressure on Saudi Arabia is resulting in lost commercial opportunities and the more. He can show that he has friends in other parts of the world, even potential suppliers of arms, the more. He will be able to say to the west you better talk to me at some point. Because if not I will find other people to speak with and I'm also intimately involved in all of these other sort of cross border conflicts that you you might need my help with. We'll absolutely. And I think the biggest of all and the biggest prize here is the peace. Talks over ghanistan Saudi Arabia has had a relationship with Afghanistan's Pakistan is central to the process of the peace talks. And so if the west feels that Saudi Arabia could play an important role in cajoling Pakistan to push the Taliban to the table if it could coax the insurgent directly to the table then. That may be one more step on the road to rehabilitation for no had been solo.

Chinese Presence in Pakistan Is Targeted in Strike on Consulate in Karachi

"In Karachi three tacos storm, the local Chinese consulate killing four people including two police officers before being killed themselves and before they could detonate their primary weapon econ Laden with explosives for more on this. I'm joined by Aisha Deka military, scientists offer and research associate at so as I should first of all the attack itself on the Chinese consulate in Karachi, it's been claimed by the Balochistan Liberation Army. Basically who are they in what they want? The Balochistan national liberation on me is a nationalist below ch- nationalist movement, their ethnic movement a want independence from Pakistan. But what is very cute cute is that. Earlier on in the past Balochistan Liberation Army or any army associate with the below schmooze Flint has never had the capacity to strike inside of an centers and astrategically aside, as for example, the Chinese consulate says very very strange, and it's a cross border attack as well. It's not within Balochistan. Yes. It's not within Balochistan earlier. What we've seen is that be LA or other armies of the movement would strike say petty workers, laborers working for the army all blow up a pipeline going through Balochistan having their years ago. This is like four five years ago. There was a blast in Islamabad, which was the extra beauty to be LA. But you know, everybody knew wasn't the LA. Be LA didn't have the capacity. I still don't think it has the capacity, but what is being claimed is on behalf of LA. This was on its own merits at least clearly an extremely ambitious attack. I mean, this is a a high profile and presumably will secured target, which they clearly intended to do serious damage if this was the Balochistan the beret army, and as you correctly point out, there's some doubts as to whether they're claiming to whether it's being claimed on their behalf by other actors, but why would the Chinese consulate of Bena target fastly because there is the China puck sonic comic corridor, which passes through Balochistan. There is development work and guava, which is a portent of very strategic port very strategic location in Balochistan. It's a deep sea fishing pole, which would give China the ability to kind of a be part of the Rabian, see. Says very strategic and what the Balaj ethnic Ballade say is that well, a strategic mood shift has been made a strategic decision has been made regarding the province without taking them into account. And they do not want to be part of Pakistan. I still don't think I mean, I'm doubtful that there are several claims. There's a Pakistani claim that the Balaj themselves are being funded by by Indians in intelligence agency in of gone intelligence agency, they could be others as well. And what the Chinese have been saying so long is allow us allow the Chinese to come bring their own force into Parkistan the security forces to defend and secure anything. Why there is Chinese investment or Chinese presence? So it could be anyone really. But it doesn't look like. The work of be LA because be LA has limited capacity is much not just in Balochistan, but in Pakistan as whole is the much resentment or suspicion of China's increasing influence in Buxton. In Balochistan, the issues being raised bought generally the state, and the people are generally, you know, excited about money coming in. I mean through the China Pakistan economic corridor. China plans to invest sixty one billion dollars into Pakistan and has so far invested about twenty six billion dollars. They were stopped after the last government lost in elections. And there is a new government in the new government destroying to reach out to the Giannis. But there are other problems, for example, IMF has raised issues with how CPAC known as coming into into parka sawn, and they're saying that box on will get into debt trap China. And so when box current prime minister went to China, very recently, he was met very warmly, but not giving any money Buxton. Badly needs money. So it was a smile. Good vicious press.
