A second reason as that there are some fundamental difficulties, for example, the US wants to open up the UK healthcare market, the national health service, which is a delicate issue, politically. They also want to open up the UK market for agricultural exports. That includes lots of regulation issue foodsafety. Chlorinated chicken is the big issue of contention these very difficult issues. They've proven very difficult before. So I don't expect any swift resolution that because these issues go back a long time. So you recently published a paper looking at trade disputes in the nineteen thirties, specifically that countries began striking bilateral trading agreements like the ones being associated. Now why did you look back at that period? And what did you find? We look back at that period, because people have been discussing this notion of trait while as recently so it's quite natural. It's a look back in history and asking well what happened in previous. Times when we had trade while as in the nineteen seventies is probably the obvious point to luck. And it's quite interesting that during that time periods. What the trait was really did is they cemented, pre existing trading blocks in particular, that British Commonwealth. So you had the UK negotiating bilateral agreements with Australia and Canada, and India. Right. And then I, I read you also a Germany forming its own block with, with members countries that it had relationships with, and the US did something similar. That's right. The origins of the British trading block really go back to what while one and a lot of the considerations are of a military nature, geostrategic nature. They were bottlenecks in some supplies, especially for the military. And that's why the British government was thinking more about how to secure its supplies and that happened on the German side as well. Germany was preparing for law. They were gearing up for war, so they needed to make sure the half the right supplies, especially for the mandatory. Now you. You write that if similar patterns play out today, we could see a quote reorientation of world, trade around China in US, Centric, trade blocs. How likely do you think that is? Well, it depends on the politics, the White House wants to have a mall bilateral approach, whether you as deals with one individual country as opposed to a group and China now wants to create a system of its own, so that does include establishing sphere of influence in Asia, and each of them will want to build out their own realm, where they have the power in the region. What do you think is at stake here? If this approach continues, what are your main concerns? The main concern is retaliation. We go back to periods where countries didn't coordinate that was very much the case in one thousand nine hundred fifty is if I slap a tariff on new you don't like that. And you slap a tariff on me, and we're both. Worse off. That's why after what, what to we had multilateral organizations to get rid of that problem, and now at risk of going back to the previous periods during the great depression, when people didn't call it an eight stat trade policy, and everyone ended up being worse off, and I think that's the concern the international architecture, the institutional framework, foot doing trae policy might just break down, and it might become much more national bilateral, professor, Dennis, Novi of the university of Warwick.

We're not in Kenya. Yet. Maybe one day. It'd be. So you don't have a they quit into the BBC's World Service. Well, actually, there's something called NPR worldwide just getting going which we are going to be on. We're launching in Berlin in April. But I think that's just starting to roll NPR worldwide. So. I you know, the BBC's unrivaled. I lived over there for a few years. Yeah, man. Yeah. Wait, an end in Germany and listen to the BBC all the time. Yeah. There's nothing like it is is fantastic. And I guess as you they have the advantage of the columnists. Yes. And a lot of people to use English some many of them using reach us there as an official eight an official national language, and for many, the BBC has represented them the media that to tell you the the things as they are. I know that's That's what. what the world. Yeah. Yeah. So it has that vantage. And I always say, why would they would tell you the things as they are not. You're never know. Do you believe you want to know the truth has original BBC? Yeah. I remember I was talking to an American journalist ones who is with the chimera Rouge at the end of the Vietnam war, and he's out in the jungles. And they were listening to the BBC to know what was really happening in a war that made fresh. Yeah. Yeah. I it's so interesting to me that I mean, I think you know, that is a legacy of colonialism. But I I've I'm quite impressed with what they've turned it into. The era of globalization. I feel like suddenly the BBC has a new no reason for me is smart about it, as, you know, immediately, many of those colonies became independent whoever came up. I have never known quite I'm not a historian whoever came up with the idea that as they were becoming independent. You know, before it dependence. We all the con is known as the British Commonwealth. They all part of the British Commonwealth. And then at dependence. The what was dropped. And then it became Commonwealth and everybody accepted it. And the head of the Commonwealth is you know, who? Tiny little island. Yeah. And so I think that is so smart because many of them, and especially in the years after they dependence when many of those colonists still continued to do business with the former colonial masters. I mean, you can imagine how much the British. Economy benefited and Detroit almost went continued to them pyre after dependence because many of them could one on their wanted to do business with England how with Britain, and because that's what they were used to the the infrastructure was created by them. So the know how to go shopping in France. So if you were a British colony it, you didn't think that you could go to France or go to Spain or go to. Russia to business. He went Britain. Yeah. Yeah.

Remember, the cartoon that was osmond's cartoon missed that. Oh, anyway, I think this is the theme to it did the BG's have a an a cartoon to. I'm sorry. What? Well, the there's going to be a news conference at noon. The suspect in the officer Ron sing murder one AM Wednesday night, a illegal alien killing a man who and I just I was saying it out loud. You really get the scale of the irony and the outrage share that Ron sing from Fiji like for for instance, if you remember the golfer VJ Singh, he was from a Fiji huge over the past hundred years immigrant community coming to to Fiji because Fiji was part of the British Commonwealth and Ron Ranasinghe born in Fiji emigrates legally to the United States goes through the process to come to the USA renounces is his his Commonwealth passport and Fijian citizenship to come to this country to be a cop. I don't want to be a cop and America Newman's a tiny place there Stanislas county. He's we heard this yesterday on report from yesterday that the guy was living. Not just the American dream of the California dream found a bride here there. They got married. They just had a son and he loved California, he Spearfish he free dived. Open water. Swam of everything. He lived to California life and was a cop a guy a guy who got off the plane and started giving back this countries. And he was killed by a person who is here illegally, a illegal alien and Stanislas county knew who it was because they had they had his car. They had him on video. Buying beer at the at a convenience store getting into that truck than they then that's the truck that was pulled over then it abandoned. So they knew who the guy was they they knew that he was here illegally because he had. And I think we're going to find this out that he had been through Stanislas county jail. Moore said of some others, and but for minor things, and this is one of these things where people who tolerate the the little violations that's always their defenses. Well, if they're up here obeying, the law doing everything great, you know, the whole thing and just a minor assault or abuse domestic violence shouldn't get you kicked out of the country. So we're gonna find out just my prediction at noon. There's a press we're gonna find out that this guy did several things that should have got him deported. And either something happened that in prior run ins with the law that ice. Didn't want to dispatch a van to Modesto from East Bay. They didn't it wasn't worth the Tangy gas or whatever. But that there were several times. I'll tell you what. If there were if there was an immigration hold on this guy ever. And it wasn't an wasn't responded. It didn't follow up with border patrol being there within Woodward is three or four or five days and the guy walked free, then you should be quite outraged. Because we we lost a really admirable person in this goes back to the bologna family, and Edwin Rama's, you know, that that a father and two sons are killed by a guy with MS thirteen TAT's MS thirteen connections felony juvenile arrests felony convictions as a juvenile ten years ago now and Gavin and Kamla didn't report him to the they had a sanctuary policy. And of course, when the bologna family embarrassment, sprayed crazy, juice all over Gavin and Kamla he said, well, it wasn't my policy. It was it was devised. It was mayor die fi who became mayor because of gun via. Silence. Whatever crappy does whatever jet, I brain fart. He does. And so here, here's the situation where he gets even worse were the. I don't know. They can you know, the name the names. I it's a it's a sad roll-call Jimmy L Shah kid trying to do it. Right. Growing up in Los Angeles in highschool succeeding in high school. Extremely successful football player. Stanford looking at him because he had a strong role model. Father Jameel Shah senior Greg guy, but on the station. Great guy, raising his son, right?

Rolls up on Jameel Shah within twenty four hours of walking out of twin towers this punk says who you with your meal Shaw, whatever's answer is we'll never know guy. Shoot. Some debt kills kills an American citizen. The bologna family an MS thirteen guy should have been deported five times. And I'll just go, blah, blah, blah, Kate Steinle now, blah, blah, blah, Ron sang. And so this is hits home in California because we're being led by elected officials who who traffic in shielding, these people not we haven't name because the license plate was run. There's a registered owner to the pickup truck that they that they rolled up, but we'll wait till the news conference. We're not going to say a name that turn while it'll turn out he stole a pickup. So we don't know. But we we have a a name.

"Tell us what happened on June sixth nineteen forty four. Simply put it is the the invasion of mainland Europe occurring six of Jude. He's alternately the the the beginning of the end for the military. I'm for the German titles. Many as long as we can get a full told on the beaches on the six of Jerry initially, the date was set for the faith, but it was postponed by bad weather. Tila, six of Jerry, but if say if we achieve that is the beginning of the end through this literally to everything with the the fighting occurring on the Russian from from the jab Manami as well actually to to the they're in trouble. But he we have got to get that full title. So that's the significance of data itself. So there's five beaches tells us about the five beaches, and then there's two beaches that we got to stand on with you. Okay. So, unfortunately, the British and Canadian beaches are not particularly well visited because I think basically the people want to be reinforced with what they what they say in Hollywood and what they read invokes. And generally most is American, but if we start from the most easterly Beecham was way to the west. So we've got the British London on sword beach, the Canadians on Juno beach. Thank keep going to the west. We've got the Brits again lending on beach. And then the beaches, you went on yourself, the most famous one, of course, is is. And then keep going to the to the west to the east and face of the coats and something and Sheila when she's just as some of out into to say as Utah beach, and suddenly I think is as guides most of us we failed this point that you Utah each doesn't get the recognition that they should by Americans. It is the second of the American beaches. Purely because he's casualty list to successfully doesn't trust the drama, but the YouTube, which is Tara. All right. He's still find his book following in the footsteps of heroes d day, Dale, I'm curious how do you frame up this journey looking through the lens of each country. Because as you just mentioned as Americans, we wanna go, and we're sort of preloaded with what we wanna think how do you get through that? I don't know whether it's Americans in general, but I I find that all the Americans that I get on my toes are incredibly open minded as long as you you come back. What you're saying with FOX. Most Americans will open the mind to to the broad. Shall we say story if the day, you know, a lot of people are not aware, but seventy nine cents the the Monterrey's partition Commonwealth so British empire. Forty six percents of every plane that flies over here on the days in terms of foresees, sixty two cents for everybody who landed his British Commonwealth and then terms of plumbing. The book is eastern by the British. But the subject that I would push with people on the tool, but most Americans are incredibly inquisitive as well and a few as I say if you buckle with what your what you'll telling them with with FOX and give it some balance as well on funding. It's not a problem. I find that most people are interested in the fact that he's a little bit distorted through through Hollywood, and documentaries, and and the media in general, and so, yeah, if anything is probably a positive for me that I get to shed that it's you know, it is a joint operation and the the other nations is is eight thousand big if not bigger than than the American relations day damn talking. Once we get a down the road that make no mistake, the American full sees Welby. We'll be in Europe on the western front. Follow up on that. I have I had a list of misconcep-. Mile long ignorance in my own just understanding, what do you find to be the biggest misconceptions or the most frequent things that you run into over and over and over again. The first is is the Russian front. You know, it's pretty well known throughout the the the the historian. Well, the about seventy three seventy four percents of the German army is believed to have been destroyed on the Russian front not for Americans who's a bit of a shock. But of course, the Cold War pretty much starts. At the end of the the second mode wall. And of course, is the tensions grow and the military of both sides. He's growing, you know, we can't be focusing on the the cheetah sustained casualties. Russians can can can take the the they're incredibly tough people. So I I would say Russian involvement. He's probably the biggest misconception. And then the second misconception is he's the, you know on deed itself, the British Commonwealth forces and police forces as we would call them in those days, they are the dominant elements on the day. The figures are not too skewed other than naval. But I I would say they are the two things that people surprised by. I think two other side it goes back to Utah beach. You know, I always say to people in the morning, the sa- me Utah beach. Most people will find is the most educational stop of the day. Now, I know that we run through the layout of the German defences. The veto stunned MRs as they went on. But it's it's the fact that people are just not aware of the story that all the time that given the story of Maha, which is is the more dramatic, ironically. When is people at the end of the day, you know, which which stops on the one day American tools. Have you enjoyed the most is amazing that you top h he's he's right up as one of the best places. For clients throughout the day is a stop. But I think he's he's got to be the inflation. You know, the scientists. No, it's it's less dramatic than the ground to Omaha beach. But he is the story. It's the story that a success story is he's he's neglected because unfortunately, it's just not the drama of his name is Dale booth. We're cars here in a moment. He's a battlefield guide in Normandy. And Ron you're saying you 'cause your world traveler, you said, this is probably the best guided tour you've ever been. All right. Without a doubt the best guy ever been on it. It opened my mind in a way that few things ever have. It was unbelievably amazing. And even though Dale charge me an extra five pounds for his book. Looking on the back of the bucket says twenty pounds lots within in the back of the van, I think charge me twenty five pounds. What are you writing? In your book, you said to Don thank you for visiting the d day beaches in honoring your World War Two Jenner. Dale booth. What are your rights says thank you for visiting DJ Vitas and honoring your greatest generation hub. So I switched up a little bit. Just to just a couple of words. The book is called the footsteps of heroes d day. We'll come back with more Dale booth is Ron and Don KIRO radio come second part of our four o'clock conversation. We'll ask Dale what is like today would be ninety four ninety six years of age when they hit those beaches, the average age was twenty what is it like when those American veterans come home today, and they walk through those cemeteries because he walks with them.

"But I mean impure and if we think right, and then if we think about the Soviet system as in empire, like terms that also we think of as an empire that brought together lots of stays as you put it into a federal system. So are you trying to make a conceptual theoretical claim that empires are somehow prone to an outcome of partition or that it's. Their collapse that leads to partition in the wake of their demise will move away from the generalization to a more specific British realm. I now think that this is will may be highlight the differences in my opinion, from the Soviet case where you do have a very central sort of government. You have also territorial empire. I want go even into debate among the Soviet. And you know he saw whether empires is the best way to describe that system or nothing. I'm just saying that they certainly imitated many of the tactics, right? So I think that what happened in the British empire, especially post world one is that you have a very interesting and solid group of thinkers that imagined that the emperor of is evolving and entering into a new stage. Some of those thinkers were actually using the term to third empire. Now what one of the key features of the third empire and this is different key difference from sort of the official Soviet system as that in this kind of great Commonwealth of nations each if you'd like, city state will govern itself. So self government is a central part of the project. It's both due to one would say, noble a deal liberally deals about the Celtics of these nations, but it's also much more efficient to run your empire. This way, we all know these stories about, you know, the British. Raj in India, its subcontinent that up into the until there were troubles in twentieth century, you had nine hundreds civil servants running the entire show, and you can do you have such a major undertaking only by allowing the locals to run their own businesses. Now in the twin century, after nineteen nineteen, its self government is also about preparing these nations for self-government self-government. And this is the historian in me, says it's not about independence. It's not about sovereignty. There's no expiry date that comes cleared that no someone can come and say, I'm mature enough. Give me an independent nation, say that is completely separated. And even more than that deception is that in unity, these small fractions cannot hope uphold themselves without being part of a bigger unity. And I think this is word Irish cases. Very interesting because unlike what we know about India, Pakistan. In Israel in nineteen forty, seven, eight. This is the clear case where partition started as one of those mechanisms of maintaining the differences within the empire. Now, many stories found it difficult to think about our land in sort of a colonial bam. No. In the division among British historians, Ireland is the backyard. You know, you don't. You know, with the British impurity stories are doing colonies overseas, but actually you have here something very interesting and the partition of Arlene the nine nineteen twenty two is actually in and the creation of the Free State of Ireland. And this is something that people tend to forget the Free State of Ireland is a bit of a misnomer. It's a dominion within the British Commonwealth of nations. So you created a system in which Northern Ireland becomes England per se, and what we think as an independent sovereign Republic after nine forty nine is actually part of the British Commonwealth of nations almost like a. Ration- the differences between federation and comfort rations. There are nuances, but they're important you once they're thinking, I think I would argue more federal than confederal because part of what we see here is a new phase of imperial governing in which you start moving. If you want to use today's language into sort of a an network type of imagination, in a sense, it's good for you that every unit will run its own business up to, you know, when trouble comes in, I would argue that among so many of these British colonial administrators would were one that was devastating and price was awful, was the proof that the system works because suddenly the emperor jumps into help England in its work, Canadian troops and Australian and people from New Zealand are shedding blood and paying taxes without which Britain would not succeed. So in a sense for them, that was already showcase that this is the way to go back to the..

"For us The network. Is pleased to present Ronald l. dart and born to win It's too bad more people don't read the. Old Testament. Prophets I know they can be a little hard to follow at, times most of them are poets and they use a lot of imagery but it's a little disconcerting when, you muddled through some of the passages that seem to be ancient history, and then suddenly find the profit talking about the last days of man the end of history and the prophets are telling someone at the end of time that God is not amused with. Their behavior and all hell is. About to come down on their heads Wouldn't you like to know who is talking about just in case it happens to be you In, the last program I ask a couple of important questions when you read, the Old Testament prophets you can get the impression that the only nations that matter at all or. A tight little knot of people down in the Middle East with the entire world. In conflict there is no mention of the most, powerful forces in the world in. Our day it is as though the entire English? Speaking people the English speaking world doesn't exist There's something wrong with the picture and preachers have have. Tried to resolve it in different ways some argue that the old Testament's entirely irrelevant. But it's hard to come away from a reading, of the prophets would that conviction Others have argued that the United States and the British Commonwealth are the latter day descendants of the ancient house of Israel. And that in, the principle of type in any, type the things that happened to Israel in the old days. Are going to happen to us and the, God is just as angry with us as he was with them. At that time Not made the point so far that the bible identifies nations prophetically in at least five different ways and I've, named four of them he identifies them geographically as he's twenty says the land of Egypt hit identifies them ethnically as when he says the children of Ammon or the children of Israel He identifies them type logically that is in the principle of type. An anti type or pattern and. Later pattern that is the things that we, told them in the past things that God described in the past you go looking for the pattern at the time And the people that fulfill that pattern are the people that God, is talking about in fourth. He identifies them politically and by that it means governmentally who's in. Charge here now you can have a copy of the last program just by asking for. This one they'll come to you on two sides of a single cassette tape and you can have it we'll. Give you the grab a pencil and a piece of paper we will be giving you a phone. Number and address three more times in this program The Fourth Way. Of identifying people that is politically is often overlooked is. Surprising how many people who are quite knowledgeable, about the New Testament no. Very little Old Testament history and without that history understanding the Old Testament prophets is impossible you'll never get it after the death of. Solomon Israel divided into two political entities called the house of Israel and the house of Judah all those people who lived under the government of the house of Judah came to be called Jews whether they were of the. Tribe of Judah or not and there were people living down there with the time. Judah went, into captivity who were, reminds Manasseh it's for the tribal Zevulun they were from. All over Israel because there are many of them had fled there as refugees when the. Ten northern tribes winning indicatively but all those people were a part, of the house of Judah. And prophecies that have to do with the house of Judah have. To do with all of them where they are ethnic Jews or whether they are not That's what I mean by people politically Now there were a lot of refugees as I said from the ten northern tribes in the house, of Judah when they went into captivity and therefore there were a lot of those ten northern tribes Representative, when Israel came back out of captivity and a lot of people assume that the Israelites that came out of captivity. Were all there was left of Israel the we. Saw last time that was not true The people who came out of captivity were the house of Judah but the house of Israel it. Was still scattered among the heathen at that time One of the objections? To the idea that the United States could be. Israelite is that. So we are. Such a melting, pot is what people say what. Do you mean we could be Israelite? After, all we are Germans we are Italians we are French we are Irish we are everything under the sun how could we possibly be called Israel well actually a gentile. Living in the, house of Israel in the old days was according to the law to be treated and to behave as one born, in the land in other words he was a. Citizen of the house of Israel and therefore prophesies dealing. With the house of Israel dealt with him whether he was. An ethnic Israel lied or. Not God, did not recognize their ethnic divisions in the land they were all under one government and that government was Israelite there were two of them. In fact the house of, Judah and the house of Israel and anybody living in those two countries were, deemed to be citizens of those two countries so in the latter, days if in the latter, days a people were to live under a governmental system That was primarily Israel they could be a melting pot and still be. The house of Israel now, understand I'm not drawing conclusion what I'm doing at doing here is dating possibilities Understand that for such a situation to exist God would have to have brought it about miraculously it would never. Happen that way naturally the argument is that God has brought it about. In order. To fulfill some very. Old promises made to Abraham and to the prophets I have nothing imprint on this subject but if you'll ride. Or call I will tell you, where you can get some, free material covering the British as rule of you point on prophecy get a pencil and a pad because, we're going to give you the address and phone number about three times before this program is over so when? You're reading the prophet's you have to ask yourself how is God identifying the nation's you're reading about is he speaking geographically as he is when he says the land of, Egypt shall not escape is, he speaking ethnically as when he speaks of the children of Israel? Is, he speaking type logically identifying nations that fit the pattern that he is describing if they look like a duck, and walk like a duck and quacks like a duck maybe they are a duck is he, speaking politically or governmentally identifying nations by their governmental. Structure now I'm sorry to say. It's, very difficult to be certain in many cases because there simply is not enough data and God may very well intended to be so Bye Because prophecy is not given to satisfy our curiosity about the future is. Given so we will understand the future as it happens so that we will see God's hand in the events that take place and as a warning for us to change our ways to avoid the dire prophecies that are. Given and that works no matter who you think God is talking. To I've given you four ways that God might identify a nation in the last. Days there is a..
