"And we really don't think that China's liabilities are going to be extended.

And that's a direct quote because of the debt -to -GDP ratio. Yeah, we used the word May. May covers a lot, but they still felt the need to come back and say that they don't see that happening.

Fresh update on "belarus" discussed on The Crypto Conversation
"And we believe that the timing is exactly right for us to be launching crypto X. Obviously, yeah, a year ago, if we started a year ago, it would have been a completely different story. But now we believe, you know, with all the positive things happening with, you know, Binance, Sago, with ETFs probably coming, with Halberni next year. I believe that it's exactly the right time to start building things. And you said you had a career in real estate in Ukraine. You're from Ukraine? Well, originally, I'm from Belarus. I moved around a lot. Spent the last 20 years in Ukraine. You're still based in Ukraine today? Well, I had to leave when the war started. I have three little kids, so I left on the first day of the war. So now I'm currently investing in Italy, but waiting to return to Ukraine, hopefully, when the war stops. Yeah, well, understand. And I'm sure I speak for everyone, and we hope the war stops soon. Can you share any kind of perspectives on the Ukraine crypto scene? Because I know in the early stages of the conflict, I suppose, you know, there was a lot of crypto was donated to the Ukraine cause. And that was one of the quickest ways to get, you know, donations and capital into Ukraine at the time. What is the kind of the crypto scene like in Ukraine? Yeah, you're absolutely right. Well, crypto scene in Ukraine had been active before that, right? By the virtue of having a lot of engineers and a lot of tech savvy people, crypto kind of had very, very, a lot of people were into crypto and it was a very good option even before that. But the war actually kicked it into another level, both in terms of donations, obviously, yeah, that was a great part of it. I mean, millions and millions of dollars were donated through crypto. That was official crypto account by one of the ministries, you know, so the ministries were accepting crypto donations. So that was also a boost. But apart from that, crypto got real wide adoption in Ukraine during the war because its benefits as a secure, permissionless and kind of financial system that is not dependent on location, on the systems working or on any, you know, kind of government entities and so on became quite evident. And, you know, with financial system being paralyzed, with capital controls being imposed, obviously, you know, people and even physically, you know, if you had to move out of Ukraine and you had to, you know, like we did, we had 20 minutes to basically to get our belongings with us. Obviously, it turned out that crypto is the best way to basically, you know, to organize the financial system and that crypto in the Ukraine is now very, very, I mean, it's not probably in Salvador, but apart from not having the official status, it's kind of legal tender crypto adoption is very, very, very wide in Ukraine right now. Yeah, very, very interesting to hear. Look, we've talked quite a bit about Good Crypto X, but, you know, just looking through Good Crypto X as well and, you know, the Good Crypto X, the Good Crypto app, I'm sorry. Yeah, it looks very interesting and there's a lot of functionality there. You've got various plans depending on, you know, the advanced level of features that you want, but there's everything from, you know, there's great portfolio track out, lots of different bots and automated trading strategies, 35 different crypto exchanges supported.

A highlight from Former V.P. Mike Pence on Putin's threat to Poland and Biden's interference in Israeli politics
"Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College, all things Hillsdale, hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And of course, to listen to the Hillsdale dialogues, all of them at hughforhillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, joined by former Vice President Mike Pence. Mr. Vice President, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show. Hey, good to be with you, Hugh. Thanks for having me on. Well, I want everyone to go to mikepence2024 .com if they want to support you, if they want to learn about the campaign. We'll come back to the campaign in a second. But I'm not mistaken, Mr. Vice President, you and the former president are the only two people running for office who have ever received the daily brief, who understand, had all the clearances you could. So I want to ask you three national security questions this morning, beginning with the threat that Vladimir Putin made in the company of Lukashenko, the dictator of Belarus, that any attack on Belarus would be an attack on Russia. And then the Belarusian leader made the claim that the Wagner people in Belarus are wanting to go to Warsaw. What would be the obligation of the United States in the event that Wagner, Belarus, or Russian troops attacked Poland? Well, there's no question what the obligation would be under Article 5 of the NATO treaty. And that would be required to support Poland, we'd be required to be involved militarily. It's one of the reasons why I've said many times, I mean, Joe Biden has done a terrible job explaining what our interest is in Ukraine. He keeps giving these gauzy speeches about democracy. And for all the world, it sounds like another campaign speech and our interest there. And the reason why we should continue on an increasing basis to give the Ukrainian military what they need to repel the Russian invasion is because we never want to see the day that the Russian military, whether it's a Wagner group in Belarus or otherwise, crosses the border of a NATO country where our troops would be required to fight. I mean, that's how you get peace through strength, is by living out the Reagan doctrine, which always said, if you're willing to fight the communists on your grounds with your soldiers, we'll give you what you need to fight them there. So we don't have to fight them. And yet there are too many voices in our party that are sounding the retreat. They're willing to let Putin keep the land grab that he's made in Eastern Ukraine, willing to make promises. I heard my former running mate has announced over the weekend that he's willing to promise that Ukraine will never be in NATO. Look, in my opinion, the only thing Putin will understand is strength and providing those courageous fighters in Ukraine what they need to to repel the Russian invasion is the fastest way to security and preventing the day that American forces are actually required to go into battle in Europe again. What do you think Lukashenko and Putin are doing here? The Telegraph calls it a setup for a false flag operation or is it just mind games? Yeah, look, I would hardly ever counsel Hugh Hewitt on foreign policy, but you and I both know the only thing you can know for sure about anything coming out of Russia is you don't know for sure. Okay, well said. Nothing is as it seems. When you find out that after Ferguson does this supposed coup against Putin, now we found out in the last week that they apparently met a couple days later and had a conversation and the whole thing could have just been a put -up job for Putin to flush out his enemies in his own government. I wouldn't have put it past him. I do like what was once said by another presidential candidate. He said he looked into Putin's eyes and he didn't see his soul. He saw KGB. That's who you're dealing with and so nothing is as it seems in the acolyte state of Belarus that I just wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him and that's why we just need to stay strong in this effort and continue to demand that the Biden administration stop dragging their feet on providing arms in Ukraine, which they've been doing for the last year and a half. Give those people what they need. They can win this war and secure the peace of Europe and the security of our country. Now Vivek Ramaswamy, who you'll be sharing a stage with on Friday at the Iowa GOP Lincoln and with all the other candidates are going to have their speeches in Iowa, Vivek was throwing shade on NATO this weekend on Fox News Sunday. Meanwhile, the US and 13 allies were holding a record -setting military exercise in Australia. It seems to me that this might be a time for us to expand our alliances, Mr. Vice President, not sever them. Well, we'll be strengthening our alliances. The last thing that we ought to do is try and secure peace in Ukraine by rewarding Vladimir Putin's naked and brutal invasion into that country by giving him the land and giving him promises never to have Ukraine be a part of NATO. Look, and this has everything to do with the wider world, Hugh. I mean, there's no question in my mind that if we end up capitulating to Putin's aggression, that will only embolden President Xi in his military ambitions in the Asia Pacific. And I just think this is one of those moments where we learned hard lessons in the first half of the 20th century where America, we thought we could hang back. We thought we could hang back within our borders and watch as the world became more unstable and unfurled. And we learned hard lessons than having to come into the fight, both in World War I and especially in World War II. And we won those fights for freedom, but we've secured the peace now for three quarters of because a century we've been willing to stand strong. We've been willing to be the arsenal of democracy. And if I'm president of the United States, I promise you we're going to live out that commitment of being leaders of the free world. And let me also say, I had a sporting debate on stage about a week or so with a former Fox News host that got some play on the Internet. I just don't think we have to choose between solving problems here at home, which is the economy that's failing, the border crisis, the crisis in energy, the crime wave in our cities. I don't think we have to choose between solving problems here at home and being the leader of the free world. We can do both. And anybody who says we can't has a pretty small view of the greatest nation on Earth. Now, Mr. Vice President, third, I'm playing rapid fire national security, but a lot happened this weekend. Right now they are voting in the Israeli Knesset on the reform of the Israeli Supreme Court. Got nothing to do with America. It's an internal Israeli domestic issue. Yesterday, President Biden told Israel to stop, slow down and not do that. And Tom Friedman, one of the most extraordinary columns ever in The New York Times, telling the president to address the dear President Biden that the October 1973 intervention by Richard Nixon to save Israel is what he's facing right now. He has to save Israel by getting by involved speaking the truth. What do you make of the intervention of an American president into the internal domestic politics and policy and judiciary of an ally? Look, I said many times and I was at Christians United for Israel a week ago, Hugh, and I was honored to receive some recognition there, Defender of Israel Award. I was humbled by that. Look, I was a part of the most pro -Israel administration in American history, I always would say. And I will tell you, if I'm president of the United States, if the world knows nothing else, the world will know this. America stands with Israel. And this preoccupation of Democrats, which literally goes back decades of trying to micromanage what's happening in the domestic politics in Israel, is wrongheaded. And it undermines a clear message to one of the most dangerous parts of the world of our commitment to our most cherished ally. I reject it categorically. I'm a great admirer of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He's absolutely determined to see this this court reform through. And I think we ought to let Israel be Israel, let them sort these things out domestically. And our position should just be to always give them what they need to defend themselves, by themselves, and to make it clear in the region, in the world, that America stands with Israel. Period paragraph.

Is Poland Reviving the Death Penalty? Jack Posobiec Weighs In
"Jack, I want to talk. You know, actually, give us the lay of the land. I mean, you are Polish, you're an American, but you are a Polish descent. My family's poorest, yeah. Yeah, your family's Polish. So I saw this news story. I wasn't going to so sorry to put you on the spot here, but I know you can handle it. I saw that there's the prime minister in my right of Poland is now calling for the death penalty to be brought back into law in Poland. Is that right? Yes. Exactly. So you got to understand that the backstory is that in the EU, the death penalty does not exist. In fact, there's only one country in all of Europe that still has the death penalty, and that's Belarus, which is in Eastern Europe, not in EU member. And in fact, Russia doesn't even have the death penalty. So I know, right, Russia. And so for any EU member to even discuss bringing this back, I mean, it would be like, I mean, it would be like us talking about bringing back firing squads or something, which I do know that I think Idaho was actually talking about this recently. So the backstory here is that unfortunately there was a horrific case of child abuse in Poland, this total psychopath where murder in general is very, very low in Poland. It's one of the lowest countries in all of the OCD. The developed countries list. And it was an 8 year old child who was unfortunately brutalized and killed. And the prime minister of Poland came out straight up and said, we should reinstate the death penalty when it comes for a child abuse. And Andrew, I got to say, if there's any crime that deserves it, it's that.

Russian nuclear weapons vital to protect Belarus from the West, president says
"The president of Belarus says Russian strategic nuclear weapons might be deployed in his country, along with part of Russia's tactical nuclear arsenal. Russian president Vladimir Putin announced this week that his country intends to deploy tactical comparatively short range and small yield nuclear weapons in Belarus its neighbor and ally. The statement from Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko about strategic nuclear weapons such as missile born warheads could pose an even greater threat if it comes to pass. Lukashenko spoke during his state of the nation address amid escalating tensions over
Belarus calls for ceasefire in Ukraine
"Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko has called for a ceasefire in Ukraine. The would include prohibition on either side of repositioning troops or armaments. Lukashenko also warns Ukraine against mounting a counter offensive, saying this is the worst thing possible in current conditions because it could cross out all hopes for the negotiation process and lead to an irreversible escalation of the conflict. Lukashenko adds, he's discussed with Russian president valley member Britain, the return of nuclear weapons that were withdrawn in the 1990s. Russia previously has announced that it would deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus. I'm Charles De Ledesma
"belarus" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"The U.S. is skeptical of Putin's pledge to put tactical nuclear weapons and Belarus by W J Hennigan. Three days after Russian president Vladimir Putin announced his intentions to deploy tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, the Kremlin ally said it was willing to host the arsenal to defend itself. Over the last two and a half years, the republic of Belarus has been subjected to unprecedented political, economic, and information pressure from the United States, the United Kingdom, and its NATO allies, as well as the member states of the European Union. The Belarusian foreign ministry said Tuesday in a statement. In view of these circumstances and the legitimate concerns and risks in the sphere of national security arising from them, Belarus is forced to respond by strengthening its own security and defense capabilities. Putin once again rattled the nuclear saber during a state media interview on Saturday, saying that ten Belarusian fighter jets had been modified to carry Russian tactical nuclear weapons, and that a storage facility for the munitions would be ready by July 1st. A tactical nuclear weapon refers to bombs and missiles that are designed for battlefield use and shorter range attacks, whereas strategic nuclear weapons are intended to destroy entire cities. Putin said he was willing to transfer his nation's nuclear weapons because Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko had requested them just last week, Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping signed a lengthy joint declaration that stated in part, all nuclear weapon states should refrain from deploying nuclear weapons abroad. Yet, Putin cast the move as nothing unusual because the U.S. Military has prepositioned nuclear bombs in NATO nations since the earliest days of the Cold War. We are doing what they have been doing for decades. Stationing them in certain allied countries, preparing the launch platforms and training their crews. Putin said, we are going to do the same thing. U.S. officials and independent analysts said the announcement, which comes as his forces sustain large amounts of casualties on the battlefield in Ukraine and ahead of an expected Ukrainian counteroffensive, thus far appears to be primarily for show. Much of what Putin said about the relationship with Belarus was already known. The training and aircraft modifications were previously announced, and no evidence has emerged to suggest that Russia has invested the time money or effort to build the type of robust storage facilities necessary to house nuclear warheads. We're watching this as best we can. White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Tuesday. We haven't seen any movement by mister Putin to act on what he pledged he would do, and we haven't seen any indications that mister Putin is leaning towards or getting closer to any preparations for the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Nuclear weapon facilities are regarded as the most sensitive in the Russian military, just as they are to the United States. Constructing such a long-term storage site is often a years long effort that essentially involves building a military base within military pace. Assembling concrete and steel underground bunkers, nicknamed igloos, where the warheads are kept. These facilities are surrounded with several layers of physical security, such as barbed wire fences and guard posts, and have accompanying weapons transports and service trucks. None of that has been observed in Belarus. We haven't seen anything that looks like what the Russians normally built for nuclear weapons storage said Hans Kristensen, a nuclear weapons expert at the federation of American scientists, who analyzes commercial satellite imagery and other open-source intelligence on nations strategic forces. I would certainly rule out a permanent storage site unless they've been able to secretly build all this, he said. But just in comparison, when they upgraded the bunker that is in Colin grad, that took them about 6 years.

Russia: Ukrainian drone caused blast far from border, 3 hurt
"Ukraine's government on Sunday, called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council to counter what it is called the Kremlin's nuclear blackmail after Russian president Vladimir Putin revealed plans to station tactical atomic weapons in Belarus. One Ukrainian official said that Russia has taken Belarus as a nuclear hostage, but Moscow said it was making the move in response to the west's increasing military support for Ukraine. Putin announced the plan in a television interview that aired on Saturday, saying it was triggered by a UK decision this past week to provide Ukraine with armor piercing rounds containing depleted uranium, Putin argued that by deploying its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, Russia was following the lead of the United States. He noted that Washington has nuclear weapons based in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and turkey. Russia has stored its weapons at dedicated depots on its own territory and moving part of the arsenal to a storage facility in Belarus would effectively up the ante in the Ukrainian conflict in response, Ukraine's foreign ministry condemned the move, stating that the world must be united against someone who endangers the future of human civilization.

Putin says Russia will station tactical nukes in Belarus
"Russia's president has announced he will station tactical nuclear weapons in neighboring Belarus, Russian president Vladimir Putin, said the plan was in response to Britain's recent decision to supply Ukraine with ammunition containing uranium.

He said construction of storage facilities for the weapons in Belarus would be completed by July 1st. I'm Karen Chammas

Unpacking the Mega 2022 Report From Hashrate Index
"Welcome back, the mining pod. On today's show, we're joined by Colin Harper and Erin meru of hashrate index to go over their mega 2022 report. In this show, we talk about machine prices, a state by state energy comparison, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, and much more. Welcome back to the mining pod. I got two of my buddies on the show today, listeners should be familiar with both her faces. If you're watching on our YouTube channel, got Colin Harper, former colleague, and a killing it over at hashrate index as the lead for their content team. And then you are in Belarus who is also a new analyst for them previously arcane research. He joined us back on the podcast at believe in August to talk about energy markets. They're both putting out this awesome new report on behalf of hashrate index. So we're going to dive into it. It's about 2022. Looking back at the data from last year, at the end, we'll get some thoughts from these two research Bros on what they foresee in 2023. But welcome to the podcast, guys. Thanks for joining. Thanks for having us. Yeah, thank you. Cool. So we got a lot of ground to cover. You guys told me that it was like 40 some pages beforehand and now we will not go over all 40 some pages. If anyone's interested, of course, going to hash rate index website and subscribe to their email list and you'll get it into your inbox or just look for on Twitter by both these guys on Twitter. So we'll leave that there. Let's talk about the highlights. So before we do that, we'll give it to you guys for any top thoughts while you guys have been working on this report for last month. Call on my hand it to you first and then two Erin. Yeah, so I guess high level thoughts for the report and ended up being a lot fatter than I thought it was going to be. A lot of that is thanks to having a boy year and over there helping out and adding some really good analysis and plucking some really good data. I guess I would just say it's just has a much different tone than the report that I put out last year. Like when I put out the 2021 year end report, the industry was leaving the year on a high note. Hash price hit an all time high and late October early November, or sorry a yearly high and early October or early November late October of like 41 bucks per PETA hash. And every metric was up, everything was just booming. And now obviously it's the exact opposite. We had an all time low for hash price last year, $55 per PETA hash, asic prices are in the crapper. Mining stock valuations are also in the crapper. It's just everything that we put into this report. Honestly, depressing is not the right word is because it's just where we are in the market cycle, but it was just, you know, everything was like, and this is down. And this is down. And this fell from this height in 2021. So, you know, the report really kind of just looks at how brutal 2022 ended up being. And it kind of caps we cap it off with talking about how, you know, 20, 23 is going to be a real maker to break it year. Especially considering 2021 brought in a lot of pedestrian investors into Bitcoin mining. With the Chinese mining ban, a lot of business, capital interest built up in North America, and a lot of people joined not really expecting what they were going to get themselves into. So 2020 threes module will be survival and that's kind of like the takeaway or thesis of the report. Love it. And same question over to you. High level thoughts on the research report you guys are about to put out. Yeah, I would say the same thing as sickle and hair. It's just being yeah, everything else is going down this year, as you know. So a little bit depressing, writing is report, but it's rather just behind us. And it gets our get the summer of the year, down on the paper, and after we have looked through it, we can look forward to
Nina Jankowicz' Analysis of 'Colour Revolution'
"Cut 5 go First of all color revolutions have nothing to do with race The term was coined in the early 2000s when countries like the republic of Georgia and Ukraine had spontaneous peaceful democratic revolutions that had colorful nicknames In 2003 the Georgian opposition protested the opening of a new session of parliament based on fraudulent election results They did it while carrying roses hence the rose revolution In 2004 and 2005 Ukrainians protested their own rigged election Candidate Victor Yushchenko's campaign branding was orange hence the orange revolution You get the idea Color revolutions have earned bad rap though mostly thanks to Vladimir Putin because they brought in democratically minded governments that threatened Russian influence in the region Putin likes to suggest they are CIA organized That is not true Believe it or not sometimes people get fed up with having their voices silenced for decades Putin's narratives intentionally rob protesters of agency They discount the grievances that brought them to the streets risking their lives and ultimately they undermine the resulting governments and now we're seeing the same narrative cropping up here in the United States Here's why it doesn't fit First of all in case we've forgotten protest is a democratic right you are entitled to it Second of all color revolutions happen in autocracies When people are fed up with the indignities of an entrenched regime while we have witnessed some democratic backsliding here in the United States we are not an autocracy We still have checks and balances We still enjoy democratic rights Certainly we are not Georgia in 2003 Ukraine in 2004 or Belarus today
Thomas 'Drago' Dzieran: Putin Wants NATO to Concede

men preet gill but right now we want to get you up to speed on some of the other stories we're tracking financial sanctions We've been talking about them imposed against Russia They appear to be biting and now a prominent strategist is warning that the fed needs to be ready with dollars We have more from Bloomberg's Denise Pellegrini Watch out for miss payments and giant overdrafts if the fed doesn't step up to the plate and inject dollars into the financial system That's what zoltan pozar of Credit Suisse says will happen as a result of some Russian banks being cut out of the swift messaging system they use to communicate about transactions and pulls our central banks need to be ready to make markets on Monday Just like they did during the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers and the March 2020 freeze up at the start of the pandemic He says history does not repeat itself but it rhymes And he says all this means the fed may have to expand its balance sheet again before it shrinks it Denise Pellegrini Bloomberg daybreak Asia The European Union is set to discuss a coordinated release of crude oil from emergency reserves the aim to counter a surge in prices following Russia's invasion of Ukraine Sources tell us EU energy ministers will hold an extraordinary meeting in Brussels on Monday But so far member states are still divided on whether they should take part in a potential release Meanwhile the U.S. is pushing other countries to release oil from their reserves President Biden already said he was committed to Tapping U.S. reserves if warranted This week OPEC plus is expected to maintain its plan to increase oil production only gradually We're seeing WTI futures up by 5% $96 54 8 minutes past the hour our guest for the half hour is manpreet Gale He is head of investment strategy at standard chartered private bank He's on the line from Singapore man Thank you very much for being with us A lot of turbulence and markets in a move into havens in a very major way We're talking about the rallying crude oil the drop in the entire U.S. yield curve really and gold is ticking up How do you position yourself in markets given everything that we're dealing with right now No it's an institution indeed but to some extent I think a reaction of markets really pricing in what have been some significant sanction announcements over the weekend I think for us it's really about trying to cut through the headlines and separating short and long-term decisions I think from a longer term perspective we're still trying to be mindful that we're not seeing signs of a recession We do have high inflation to fit needs to need to react to And all of those 2.2 have been risk assisting well But clearly there are some very significant short term challenges Our preferred route is to continue to hedge And I think two edges we've been quite focused on of course our gold which has done quite well for us And of course for those who maybe put something in place now currency markets which had reacted a little bit less We think Japanese is a great example of other measures that can be put in place because to your point I think the next sort of couple of weeks ITT is where the picture looked for gear and really navigating through that is going to be key to where the markets can get back to focusing on the long run or not You say you're not seeing signs of recession but as you say we're looking ahead to the next couple of weeks and we're looking ahead as well to the fed decision or how much they're going to raise rates in March Is there any kind of concerns that a recession is on the rise in given what we're seeing in the bond market Well at the moment the answer is no I mean recessions by Nietzsche are very very difficult to predict but if you look through some very what I call traditional metrics of very traditional predictors of recession they really are not sending any warning signals If you look at the yield curve for example that's been one strong measure in the past and inversion of the ten to the ten three yield curve And that isn't flashing a warning signal today Neither are other sort of measures like the high yield for example So look these are things we need to watch closely but I think they really point to the sharp contrast between the short and long-term picture because if this is not events and not leading us to a recession then from a 6 to 12 month perspective it actually important for investors to stay invested in risky assets and potentially take advantage of this opportunity But we clearly need some events of a much greater cost of concern And that's the reason the longer term sort of taken is to try and hold some of those long-term positions recognize those are 12 month views But in near term we think adding on hedges is a much better way to smoothen the journey rather than sort of backpack on some of that goal long-term exposure This is going to be very difficult for the fed I mean you were talking about their inclination to try to get inflation under control They may have to provide a lot much more in.

"Plane. Another passenger plane hitting the world trade center. All of the suspects right. Now that i know that the us is looking at or in the middle east we will make no distinction between the terrorists. Who committed these acts and those who harbor them. We've got to do something now. In dude immediately we're entitled to some semblance of securities those clips from two thousand one. Come from the economic times and cnn. They give some sense of the urgency. Many americans felt after nine eleven. Who were these terrorists. And how shall we meet this new threat to help. Answer those questions. Many turn to pakistani journalist ahmed rashid and his two thousand book taliban. Here's a clip of the blackstone audio version read by one mccaddon. The taliban had set out as an islamic reform movement throughout muslim history islamic reform movements have transformed both the nature of belief and political and social life is political changes always been made possible through the concept of jihad by twenty ten. The book had sold more than one and a half million copies and been translated into twenty six languages. Rasheed explained quote demand for the book has been kept alive by students. Soldiers academics government officials and the man and woman on the street unquote world senior editor. Mindy bells told me recently that journalists also turned to the book it just helped me understand the world view that was coming from this movement. And just how critically opposed to our own worldview. It was for one thing where she describes the roots of the taliban during soviet occupation in the nineteen eighties. Here's another clip. From the book the jihad took on a new momentum as the usa china and arab states poured in money and arms supplies to the mujahideen out of this conflict which was declaim. One and a half million afghan lives and only end when soviet troops withdrew from afghanistan. In one thousand. Nine hundred thousand nine would emerge a second generation of mujahedeen who call themselves taliban or the students of islam. Chaos reined in afghanistan after the soviets left corrupt tribal leaders fought for power and the taliban stepped in providing some hope for stability. These were young boys and young men who were left rootless who were left without jobs because of the long time of war afghanistan. they couldn't even farm anymore and said they were right for what the taliban was offering what al qaeda is offering or she'd makes clear. The taliban is more than just an isolated threat it fits within a network of terrorist organizations across the world. And that's something policymaker since nine eleven have often tried to ignore. We're not talking about just a band of guerrillas operating out the mountains of afghanistan anymore. We're talking about a vast movement that is organized disciplined has very rigid worldview attached to it Rashid just describes that so well and really with a lot of journalistic detail brings that to life is bells if she would caution readers about the book in any way we should recognize a. He's a product of of the culture. That he comes from he has On some levels. What i would call sort of a secular muslim world viewpoint receipts emphasis on oil is a bit out of date but bell says the country continues to be upon in larger political conflicts. One of the underlying things that has been at work in this whole situation. Afghanistan is is that definitely the chinese definitely the russians. They want an inroad there because of rare earth and mineral that are there into. That's like the new oil. I would say. Is you know the the minerals needed to power our Our phones on our our gadgets. One thing that sadly is an out of date rasheed said not much as changed with the taliban and an npr interview last month in many areas. Camman design imposing shattered Full women to cover up. There's talk about to a greater freedoms but we may have been will be allowed to world but also at the same time we recently danica women as punishment for adultery is being chopped off as punishment for stealing so there is l. Betty straightened slavic law. Which of course was very prevalent in the early nineties. The had captured most of the country as we approach the anniversary of nine eleven. I hope our classic book of the month taliban biomed rasheed can help a new generation go beyond the headlines and understand the enemy. We still face both as christians and americans and it's important to note. The taliban doesn't represent most afghans to get a fuller picture of the afghan people bells recommends pairing taliban with roy stuart's book the places in between it's like a travelogue and it's fascinating because he walked across afghanistan in two thousand and two so right in the middle of the war he is making a walking track across a country at war and he's encountering a war as he goes but he's muslim encountering the people and he's always taken in and he's always protective and so you get i think a really important feature of afghan life. Which is this code of hospitality. One final recommendation in two thousand seventeen many bells published. They say we are infidels. That book covers her journeys into the middle east. Learn about christians facing islamic jihad. It bells provides a window into some of the ways. God's been at work since nine. Eleven to close i s bells for bible verse. That could help us. Face the darkness of islamic jihad both today and as we consider the past. She points to the story of stephen and the book of acts. There's a picture of jesus where he standing at the right hand of the father. And i love that idea that jesus is.

But looking at this from the outside the flight ban feels like a step that very much effects ordinary citizens. Who I imagine have no responsibility for what happened this weekend. So what else could the international community do to punish Lukashenko? I'm thinking about you know, harsher types of economic sanctions say, banning you companies from doing business in Belarus things like that. Well. There are already sanctions that the EU imposed last year on Lukashenko and others in the ruling elite in Belarus in response to the protests and the way they were repressed, But the opposition to Lukashenko is now calling for more sanctions for stronger ones, including ones that would hit state owned companies and more directly hit the economic interests of people in The ruling elite in Belarus. But there's a risk that these sanctions could push Belarus into an even more authoritarian direction, that they could isolate Belarus even more from the West, and that they could push it even closer to its biggest ally Russia.

Andre, although the Russians were always a bit irritated by looking Shankar trying to play off Europe against Russia, seeking European investment, flirting with the idea of classic diplomatic relations with the European Union, United States as well. I don't want to fuck the bill for Belarus. It's all kinds of escapades that the Russians have been up to recently that you know, I'm not super costly, but when you start to add them together that increases the bill, and if now Belarus becomes financially dependent on Lukashenko on Russia. That's also extraordinary, awkward for Vladimir Putin, who was himself said that he wants to stay in power somewhat indefinitely. But if lucky, Shankar goes, is a result off a popular surprising It's pretty bad for Putin if Russia is already overextended. Is there a chance that Putin might say Look, this is not worth the hassle and encourage Lukashenko to respond to the EU's demands and Become less of an international pariah. It's possible. It depends on whether there see you no greater upside than a down side because again, Putin will not want to see Lukashenko ousted from power as the result of a grassroots opposition movement. Now, if Lukashenko then becomes dependent on Russia on Russia helps orchestrate his removal, or at least in the manages to get him completely subservient to them, And that is a different matter. But right now, I think it's unclear so the Russians are watching to see how everyone responds. And of course, what Lukashenko has done this but the whole world on notice because if we let lucky Shankar get away, if with this we could be pretty sure in the context of the rest of the world, not just in Europe that others will attempt this, too. No. You've been speaking with Belarusians and exile. How do they view this week's events?
