"blaine harden" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show

"With a quarterback and then the basketball team. I think stephen silas fabulous. I love the way. He's handling the james harden situation. Joe georgia's here tyler. Here joe double dipping today filling in michael connor out here on sports. Talk seven hundred. You hear george. Joe on the afternoon drive with the team. And he's with me today longtime friend. This is perfect timing with the bears and just two minutes great great to have him in. And then the this team here with all that's going on with new coach new general manager trade situation and hardened from not being here to or wants a trade to not be in on time to covert testing demanding a trade to demanding a trade to a contender when he has leverage is very simple. Your great player and you got as many rings as carmelo. Anthony got as many rings as i have a great cup champs. I got more than both Anyway i figured i'd throw that it just the hellish saw that outer off tags you in it out. Tagged parade yup. All you do with the both arms in the air at the at the arena. Look at the winnipeg jets l. Yeah i mean when you start comparing championships you think brady mahomes southborough. That's what comes to your mind champion for now. Yeah but only light might argue but shawn i got one at our alma mater pro to you a promo. That's exactly right. So when i was getting oh i might get people say or not. People said. weren't you get paid at. Se know how dare you. We never did anything wrong. In the all clear and free so here has become the biggest pain in the ass. The question is how big headache and does it become all use distraction. Play him if he doesn't wanna play. Play arts oh well that's way you punish him or do you reward the other guys that. Say if he doesn't want to be here we move him at sixty cents on the dollar. That answer would be no. But were you. Find the sixty to eighty cents a dollar and moving to milwaukee or miami or one of those or who the hell knows see. The problem is here hardened thinks he controls where he goes. He doesn't unless of course you're a sheep and you side dish Send him wherever he wants to go. Because you want to give him a lifetime achievement award for an mvp here and scoring points. That's not the way it works. Because once he's out of the building doesn't help you franchise so get whatever you can. The question is will he ever buy in this year and stephen silas. This isn't the way you wanted to get your job. It's like dusty dusty. Came in here thinking okay. I'm gonna fix it. We're going to get through the the scandal and then all of a sudden covert hits and he's got to deal with eight million things. He didn't expect that at this point dam and he dealt with it. Well stephen silas thinking okay made some few trades. Get cousins. We get john wall. Get people happy jack. Oh that's right. James isn't happy all right. So what happens chris. mannix and it was on What what show again. I'm sorry tyler. Who is the basketball show with. Ryan mcdonagh audio dot com. There you go all right so this on radio dot com with ryan mcdonagh. It's basketball very good too. So let's start at sixteen. This is chris mannix talking and he he jumps into james harden pretty harsh. And then we'll get joe and tyler's thoughts about this and harden coming out of this does hardened bear responsibility for the current rocket situation harden is like the guy that likes his house on fire and then gets mad when nobody wants to live in it. Like it's it's like harden. I mean he helped create what the rockets are like. It was harden who bears some responsibility for not being able to get along with chris. Paul simple as that. I mean it's a it to people in that relationship and you know you can blame both but you know. Get some of that. That blaine harden convinced the rockets or at least pushed the rockets an ownership there to make the trade for russell westbrook that not only lost them. Paul gash them of most of their draft picks of the next four five years and then harden couldn't make it work with west to the point where westbrook one out of that situation so this is a mess in houston but it's a mess. James harden played an instrumental role in in creating so the idea that he's lug abigail. This didn't work. i want out it. Just get a little incredulous at that. I mean the rockets have paid him a ton of money. They have catered to quite literally every need over the last seven. Eight years that he's been in houston He doesn't have a lot of. I think you know capital to to be to be making this kind this kind of stand with capital. I'm assuming chris mannix means capital meaning. There ain't a whole lot of rings on his finger to be mad to to demand all the says a lot of guys who score now very fewer as good offensive players as james harden is but the bottom line is. Do you want to put. I know there's some cities in this country and some teams in those cities that hang banners for just get into the playoffs That ain't good okay. And so ain't hanging a banner for just winning the division k. We're in the nba. Hell the indiana pacers in the aba. Go to the nba playoffs now from back when louie dampier was playing so save it so to me while i i try to love harden and i've i've i've gone the didn't wasn't real fond of his defense when i first moved when he first came to houston. Then i said okay. i'm buying guest. Jim rat loves to play and man he really does care and now to the point where. It's obviously selfish. He's a great player. That's never going away. No matter where he goes he's gonna score. It'll probably that team in scoring that. So we is but he as the number one guy no matter where he goes. He's not putting ring on his finger. He's a number two and number three guy. I don't be number two number. Three talent but in the pecking order of leadership. And just kind of who you turn to. When you need your franchise a turnaround. I go somewhere else. I mean if he does. That's fine but here in this city has the number one guy is a malcontent. It didn't happen. We say well he doesn't say much. How's the amount kinton. It's just by body language. In the way he goes about his business in the demands he puts on guys who demand what he's demanding and get an have had. The red carpet rolled out for them. Bring people in get rid of people. Want this guy get this. The plane leaves at this time. Here's what we're gonna do. And what time. We're going to leave. Lebron james you got to have that kind of skin in the game putting rings in doing it all and even guy. There's even people who don't like the lebron. James has that much pull and this is the second best player of all time. Make no mistake. You ain't the first okay. We all know where that guy and we'll talk to. We'll get a simulcast with the show in the city. That guy resides in chicago and michael jordan. Twenty three does. But james doesn't have enough in the game when i say nothing the game championship rings but the rockets have allowed it. Regards whether it's daryl morey the rockets allowed so as demands and when demands aren't met it's the kid didn't get the one present for christmas that he gets to yell the loudest and he could have thirty five good presence but did he get the one and get that one didn't the new xbox because he didn't get a brand new ferrari at fourteen right. Okay so here you go. But they've given him some some ferraris to come here. They've tried that. They sure have slight chris. Paul rudd and who wanted them on here hard. Okay so when kris maddox said. He's partly responsible for chris paul though. He's majorly responsible for chris. Knows somewhere aligning the person above him. Whether it's daryl or the ownership or whoever it is say not today son. We're we're run this show. Now what's going to happen next. Who's is it stephen. Silas rafael stone. There telman for t to there comes a point time. We gotta say you don't get your way hasn't worked for us. It's got a certain places but it hasn't got a story need to go. James harden he's this franchise is where it's at right now because james got everything he wanted. He's a no place to demand squat when it comes to where he gets to go. I completely agree. I think there's a lot more blame to go to. Darryl than many would admit right a great because people love daryl. Any let let him do it. Yeah and and he. He has admittedly loves james harden he considers him a very special person in his life and and whenever jammed day did right but it james is like a spoilt brat in this family and darryl is the parent that just enables him and just let him do. Every disneyland disneyland. Yeah he just everything. James wanted darrell..

"On June twenty fifth. One thousand. Nine Hundred Fifty Chemo. Sung decided to take matters into his own hands and forcibly reunite north and South Korea. Here's Blaine Harden again. He started the war with Stalin's help and tried become the boss of the Korean Peninsula and he sent nearly seventy five thousand North Korean troops into South Korea. Intense fighting broke out and suddenly the Korea's were in an all out civil war pretty quickly the US decided it had to step been and rallied the United Nations to throw in its support Oreo if the small country thousands of miles away but what is happening there is important to every American president. Truman and other American officials were worried that if they didn't intervene conflict would escalate spreading communism further into Asia and possibly igniting a Third World War. I sing in reese troops. Were on the defensive. Getting beat by the discipline. North Korean army North Korean troops managed to capture South Capitol Seoul the by the end of that summer. We know that the cost of freedom is high game was reset but we are determined to preserve our freedom no matter what the call. South Korean forces backed by the US and the UN recaptured Seoul and then president. Truman ordered American coalition troops to go on the offensive to liberate North Korea. First Marine Air Wing pilots slam their August right into in commies and they began to push the North Korean troops back. Further and further Kim Olson was outmatched was an incompetent military commander and was defeated. routed by the Americans and the South Koreans and would have lost his country. The very existence of North Korea was question without Mao Mao. Zedong Gordon Chairman Mao is off to refer to was the leader of China. The time he decided to intervene on behalf of the North Koreans and the Soviets because the Americans were getting way too close to the Chinese North Korean border. And he didn't want the fighting to spillover into China so he rallied his troops. Babu and sent them into North Korea and they managed to push the Americans back. To the thirty eighth parallel everyone was agreed at that point in Nineteen fifty-three to declare a draw and that's where the war went into suspended animation. It didn't end with a peace treaty. There is still no peace treaty. It's an armistice. You know often lost in the history of who won which battle and who gained more land is the impact of the war on the people of Korea it was devastating for both sides in South Korea. Hundreds of thousands died in the capital of Seoul was nearly destroyed and as bad as the devastation was in South Korea. He was significantly worse in North Korea carpet bombing by the United States on a level that had never been seen before. There was more bombing that took place in. North Korea then was dropped by the United States and all of World War Two Victor Cha professor at Georgetown University and Senior Adviser and Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. Dc and you might recognize his name because he was under consideration to become the next US ambassador to South Korea but then he got into a public debate with the trump administration over its North Korea policy anyway. What Victor Charles Describing is pretty? Incredible North Korea was essentially reduced to rubble. Some American estimates say that up to twenty percent of the population of North Korea with killed by bombs from American aircraft. I mean you don't easily forget something like that. Yeah everyone in. The country probably knew someone who died in the war and the political consequences were also really massive. We basically leveled the infrastructure on both sides of the winslow and so they were essentially starting from scratch. All over again came out sung. Who had started? The war somehow managed to use the war and its aftermath as a convenient narrative against the Americans. The story basically goes remember those Americans they bombed our country and killed your grandma and they're going to do it again unless you allow us to protect you but protection came at a certain price. They'll won't be much freedom. There won't be much information. There won't be much electricity or food but we will protect you against the Americans. What's so interesting Kinda sad about all this? Is that when we're reading on this war? What'S THE NICKNAME. We kept coming across the forgotten war right. That's often how it's referred to in the US because it was kind of like a blip on the radar but in both north and South Korea. It was obviously not easily forgotten. I mean the North Koreans lost twenty percent of their entire population. That's like if you were to lose the entire population of Texas and California massive that perceived threat of the. Us coming back to kill. Grandma became a central part of the Kim Regime. Propaganda and also fueled its decades long quest to become a nuclear power. You not to protect itself. These are not the jackboots event off. Hitler's Nuremberg this is North Korea a citadel of anti-americanism and home of the world's most regimented society. Okay now we're GONNA pass it through the next few decades to give you a sense of how the war affected the future of North and South Korea. It's set them on completely opposite pats. At first both sides rebuilt slowly. South Korea went through president after president after president while North Korea camel son continued to rule a supreme leader and up until the nineteen eighties. There were kind of in a similar boat but then South Korea started making big changes. That allowed them to be open for business with the rest of the world. Their economy grew rapidly and by the late eighties. Life in South Korea was starting to improve. In contrast North Korea was a completely closed economy. Where food closed jobs. And maybe most importantly information all came from the government. Kimmel son still fearing another attack from the. Us also poured resources into the country's military and with the help of the Soviet Union. He its nuclear program but one moment in one thousand nine hundred ninety one threaten hill songs grip on power the Soviet Union their main source of aid and raw materials collapsed then in nineteen ninety four. Something else happens that shakes North Korea to his core talk. Kim il-sung dies in the official North Korean state TV announcement but the newscasters visibly shaken. He did yes. She can barely speak. Magicians and what is the funeral shows? Thousands and thousands of people crying wailing even as they walked back and forth on the ground screaming in anguish irving talks and then for the first time since its founding. North Korea gets a new leader. Kim Il Sung Son Kim Jong Il in under him. North Korea would see its darkest days since the Korean.

"I think the great irony of of mash was that uh people thought it was about vietnam the uh the mentality the irreverence of the people of the doctors who lived in the swamp the um the uh sort of free thinking that was more of a vietnam mentality then korea um the book emerged from the war but the tv show was really about vietnam so let's go back to your book and the story of donald nichols because an incredible rise a huge influence in korea and then a tragic ending yeah donald nichols was uh uh the spy master who is incredibly important to the americans not losing the war as i said but he has been lost to history i only found out about him because i did a book about a north korean fighter pilot who defected in 1950 three and when he landed at a us air force base in seoul and gave his make to the americans he said take me to your leader and they took him to donald nichols um and as the fighter pilot described it in the interviews for my previous book he said he was this american six foot to two hundred and sixty pounds drank about a case of cocacola a day and just stuffed is faced with chocolate bars all the time but he knew the inner workings of the north korean airforce he knew the interecx workings of the north korean government he was a mayor with all of the powerbrokers around kim ilsung uh which was astonishing level of sophisticated information he also spoke some korean um the fighter pilot told me that he had never met and american like donald nickels and at this point i'd been writing and researching on uh korea in the korean war era for about six years and i never heard of him so it back and looked in the history books and he.

"They were ignorant of korea by and large until the invasion happened and then there was a as their often is in the united states a real patriotic reaction to what the president said uh president truman told his secretary of state that we've got to stop the sons of bitches and that roughly sums up the reaction of congress and the american public in the early months of the fight what was the fight light and i'm asking specifically the bombings the nisshin's the operations what did we see what did us troops see what type of combat the first three months of the war were an unmitigated disaster for the united states because because there were only five hundred american soldiers in the country when the invasion occurred and uh the north koreans came in with battletanks that could not be stopped they they sliced through virtually the entire southern part of the korean peninsula and within a couple months had pushed the americans all the way down two at corner of the korean peninsula the southern tip called the pusan perimeter uh where the americans us decided that they would fight or die general rig wave replaces general macarthur how significant was that in how did that impact the war the key thing that ridgway did uh when he quinn macarthur was fired in nineteen fifty one and ridgway came in ridgway accepted what the united states policy was towards the korean peninsula in other words he accepted a divided korea so he fought the chinese who had come into the war at that point back to the thirty eight th parallel he did not presume to want to take the whole peninsula and erase north korea as macarthur had your own brother died in the vietnam war that happened a a decade after the korean war and i'm wondering where their lessons learned or mistakes made from the korean war there were also the same mistakes in vietnam while one of the lessons that the us air force thought it learned in korea was that carpet bombing work very well.
