"Rashad. Presidential elections in Brazil but in nail biter all night for us with about 92% of the vote counted former president left wing challenger Louis cenac Lula da Silva ahead of current president jair Bolsonaro 47.3% to 44.1%, but this number is fluctuating and a lot of people are saying that the election is heading to a Lula Bolsonaro runoff on October 30th because it is so tight. I think he needs 50% of the vote to win, so that's why all the talk now is about a runoff. In Ukraine, Ukraine has taken back the key hub of Lyman. It's in one of the region's Russia just claim control over the day before. Meantime, Russia attacked Ukrainian president Vladimir zelensky's hometown with suicide drones, and they're scrolling speculation about whether Russian president Vladimir Putin would actually use nuclear weapons over Ukraine.

Global news 24 hours a day on earth on Bloomberg quick take powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries. In the newsroom do these Pellegrini, this is Bloomberg, Brian. Denise, thanks very much, ten minutes before the top of the hour it's time for the daybreak Asian media and tea leaves review where we look at some of the top stories in leading newspapers around the region and on media websites. From the Financial Times, Moderna has refused to transfer the technology for its COVID vaccine to China. It's worried about possible reputational risks if its local partner were to fail to follow correct manufacturing processes. A processes and the paper says that the company also declined a request by China to hand over the recipe for the mRNA vaccine. That's due to commercial and safety concerns. Moderna says it still wants to sell the vaccine to China, but this story says that there is no talks that are ongoing at the moment. From Dow Jones, the U.S. has fallen short of its own target of donating 1.1 billion COVID vaccines to developing countries by the end of September. This comes as many recipient governments, particularly in Africa, struggle with low demand for the shots and also limited funding to distribute them. And from the South China morning post looking at the upcoming Communist Party, Congress in China, posing the question, why are women unlikely to win promotion at the Congress? Female cadres tend to rise through gender pathways in areas such as education, civil affairs and in mass organizations, but there rarely assigned to more high profile portfolios such as finance, economics, industry, and technology. There are about 2 million female cadres serving in the Communist Party and also in government organs, mostly at the grassroots level. Women make up more than half of the central government's new civil service recruits every year. But don't get the top jobs. 8 minutes before the top of the hour that's a few stories in the media Rashad to you. Just getting data out of Japan, the tank and large and small manufacturing surveys just showing a little bit of weakness. So at least it's perhaps a better reading in some cases than the previous one, but certainly down on the estimates. Let's get to our next guest now. And we are now joined by Joe Gilbert portfolio manager at integrity asset management. Joe, thanks for joining us. Where do we stand? I mean, we're entering the fourth quarter. We've got this specter of a global recession high interest rates and fragile stocks and much more to be contending with. Yeah. Thanks for having me Rashad. You know, I think right now, as you laid out, we are very much in a very weak environment just actually fundamentally and I guess from a sentiment standpoint. So right now we're really thinking that we're entering a seasonally strong part of the year, historically, but we don't think that this year we will actually have that Santa Claus rally. I think that we are really going to be waiting on the fed and for the fed to decide that they're done. So will we see the data first or will we get a hint from fed policymakers? I mean, Bloomberg has a story in the terminal right now saying that a few of the policymakers just starting to make some sounds about maybe wanting to take a look at the effect of the rates rate hike so far. Yeah, you know, I think that, you know, we've known that fed policy X with a long and variable lag. And unfortunately, you know, the fed is really trying to forestall inflation if the expense of growth and they're doing that at a very rapid pace that we at least we feel and young granted, you know, I'm not a central banker. I just play one on a radio on Sundays, but I think that ultimately that we are going to actually start seeing the data come through weaker and weaker and the fed is actually going to be in that situation, much like the dog that chases the car. They're going to catch the car and not know what to do with it because the data is not in the economy is getting the weaker severely weak and by the time they realize it is going to be too late. Okay, but people talk about various tipping points have you seen any and do you expect more? You know, we think right now,

"Some other good things going on that we're going to talk about today, but before we do that, take us back to us what you did in the army. Yeah, sure. So one, thanks for having me on Joe, love meeting other veteran podcasters out there. Always a fun grilled and good connections and everything. So my army crew started off, I was in curiosity, the 82nd airborne. So did simple tune time in a rifle platoon and whatever too heavy weapons company. And then add the pledge to our rack and was an AS3 there. And then at some point during early on you put in a put in a packet to go over to the soft road and ended up in civil affairs. So served the 96 civil figures battalion so that's the soft battalion aligned to sitcom within the army. Awesome. And so ultimately, how long were you in the army? I was just over 8 years, like 8 and a half years. Packed quite a bit of experience in that short 8 years. So talk about transition, what was that like, the good, the bad, the ugly Japan ahead, or come up again? Yeah, I wish I could sit here and say that I planned ahead and had this amazing road map and everything figured out. But yeah, no, that definitely was not it. The first decision kind of coming to me was I liked the army, the army was fun. I would go back and do it again. But I was like, I'm ready to leave. For a variety of different reasons. So I was like, so ultimately, that was kind of the first hurdle for me personally. It was just making that decision. And it was a big decision. And I think it's okay for everyone to recognize that that's not an easy decision to make.

"On TV. And so, the reason why I know that this government is, and you know what gets me with the government. They taking my money. Your money. My granddad, my granddaddy didn't even live to enjoy his money. My grandmother, they taking minister of daddy, did 20 years in the air force. He was the first first black man to be a dietician. First black man during that time. And his wife couldn't even get healthcare. She died having her last child. People ain't even lie to enjoy the thing you talking about. Well, I don't think you deserve no reparations. I don't think you need to. I think you better stay out of my business. That's what I think. I think you better stay out of my business because we have lost a lot of our people. Because of what you think, to see now we didn't find that you don't think you think a man can be a woman. So we didn't find that you're thinking ain't worth nothing. Damn now. And then we got John Lewis. You sitting around talking about, he seemed to be, he fixed every place, doctor Kean. Just before John Lewis dad, he said, he gonna strip. Pro family groups who oppose homosexuality. And he said he didn't think it was right for the federal government to shift to that hate through the 501c3. So yeah, I don't people twist up everything. They the one that subsidized and hate now. They are the ones that subsidize and hate. And they tell them to lie. The brief pro family groups and these churches that don't go along with homosexuality, they need to be kicked. Off the list of N and then 5 on one C three. That's what I mean by the government. How did the government get involved with talking about going we got to go through them to be a church? See, that's the problem right there. 501c3. So that's the problem. And we got just before John Lewis died. He said that the federal government should not sponsor or support groups who are pro family and who hatred seeks to divide us. He said these tax exempt organization coming in the name of God. They are hate and they saw in the seas of violence. And he said that we got over 1000 hate groups in America according to the southern poverty law center. Do you know about the southern poverty law center? I stayed in Alabama. I went there. There are organizations try to pretend they for black people. That place looked like a compound. You a black person can't even get in there. Okay? I tried to contact them about what we was going through with. Didn't even acknowledge us, but always sending us emails, will you give me $5? Took my email address and started begging me for money and it ain't trying to do anything about what I'm talking about. They heard what I said, but they ignored the word of God. And we get, just before John Lewis, dad, they say, you know, he was on the ways and means committee. And they did a hearing, and you know, in a hearing or a symposium, you have to have, in order to do to hear and in order to get money to do the hearing, you have to have a name. And the name of the hearing was how the 501c3 tax code is subsidizing hate. And he's saying that people ministers that are preaching against that homosexuality is an Obama nation that they should be kicked off. The group. And what he don't understand is this whole country was built on Christian and Judy your values. This whole God, John said, said the words said that the world in the book of John. This one of the first verses. The world was made from the word of God. Listen, now we got these people and getting these seats. And then I remember John Lewis said that he waited till he get back. When did he get back? He gonna he gonna pass some type of law. Then hear from him no more. Loop it after that. And that's a shame. They don't lie and they're saying that this tax code 5 or one C three. And these pro family organizations and these pro family churches that don't include all family. That we are subsidizing socialism, say to ism. Hatred. Dangerous and offensive ideas. We and we are discriminating on a class of people. Homosexuality is not a class of people. It is an abomination before God. And he wanted to go back into me and deny people tax exemptions. That's what he was getting ready to work on. That's what he was getting ready to work on. And so the problem that we're having is we lack garden leadership. The word of God is being defiled, it is being ignored. The role of the government is to rule and civil affairs, not immoral affairs. Even if the civil, even if the civil duty overreach, God, let's say for example, if the silver do, let's say if you got a civil affair from the government and it overreach into the moral, right? If you want to know how far I go, take the word of God and apply God to stand up of law. And this is where our ministers keep our minister our responsible for the condition of this world more than anybody to believe it or not. They are, that's why they acquire it. They are silent because they are padding their pockets with money. They don't really need. Now you can send them your own money if you want to now. As you really need to be sending us your money because you know the government what we talking about. But they gonna get money no matter what because they are doing the work of seitan be accursed devil. And so we ministers who claim to be called by God. They are really supposed to gossip. I made you in my image. If you in God's image, don't you supposed to be doing what he doing. Oh, but you gonna listen to John Lewis. John Lewis ain't nobody minister. When he had now. He ain't nobody.

So I was an interrogator attached to a sigh up unit. I hated it. Psyops was like the antithesis of civil affairs. They literally tell us what do not. Anyway. Yeah, not my kind of people. Good people, but not my kind of. What are you thinking of? No. Human. A human? See, counterintuitive. We work with science, I just had a brain for it. Everyone out there was like, oh, you idiot. That's part of our job. Yeah. Well, I got back to my unit that I was very unhappy and for like a year. And how I got deployed and jsoc picked up is I actually jumped my chain of command and went to my battalion command sergeant major and said, I don't belong here. I want to deploy. And he didn't tell me to my face, but what he did next showed me that wasn't the right way to go about it because they ended up taking me out of my unit. He didn't think that was. I was desperate, dude. I was like, I'm a peacock. You gotta let me fly. I'd be fair enough, but yeah. But he was so nice about it. He had me convinced like this girl's gonna deploy soon. Yeah. So Joey, you're Russian linguist and you talk about possibly having people that have done bodies for you. You know what sergeant majors have, right? They have people that do things for them. Correct. Much like the mafia. So you left his office and he's like, he made a caller. He's like, yeah. He sure did. Put her on the list. Because less than a week later, I was out of that unit. Yeah. She going. Yep. I became 24 hours CQ in our group. So I got moved from 6 side battalion to our fourth psyop group. And I was 24 hours cq there.

So he helped you. He did, yeah. But so I was there for a month. Like cutting my wrists with plastic butter knives. And then J sock was looking for interrogators to go to Afghanistan and that's how I got picked up. So I get back to my unit from Afghanistan. I go to the jag office because I like to follow rules, obviously. And I knew a buddy there and I was like, hey,.

"And not to put you on the spot. Do you know who our first president is? Was. George Washington? No. What? No, he was the first president elected under Continental Congress. Our first before him, we had 8 presidents who served one year terms. No. Prior to and I'm blanking on the actual before the whole declaration and all that and all of our papers that we did. It was a blanking on his name, he was from Maryland. Yeah, they serve one year terms. So he was the first elected under Continental Congress, there was 8 prior presidents that served one year terms prior to that. That makes me feel stupid. Well, I mean, but that's not taught to us. And I'm like, why wouldn't it? Because that is our history because we were, we were America before we were America. You know, we were still essentially our own country, but wow. Yeah, and that's why one of my favorite questions. People like George Washington like that. And now, you know, for the 5 listeners that subscribe to my podcast. Thank you all.

I'm curious now knowing that, I kinda wanna go talk with my cousin and be like, hey, I didn't know that you had to learn history and stuff. Like, you know, never served in Iraq. He went to Afghanistan and I'm curious what his, you know, what he learned about Iraq haven't been there. Absolutely. To be like his arguably, you know, my time in Iraq. I got to see the country, but you know, my job, I didn't, not that I didn't care about the people. I just, that wasn't where I was in civil affairs in Afghanistan, like that.

"To prosecute. The war against terror. In partnership with the Islamic government of Afghanistan and will be relentless. Did you during that period begin to have doubts about what we were doing or how we were doing it? No, I didn't rain, and I don't think that many people did to include many Afghans have doubts at that time. Those were the real heady days. In that 2000 to 2000 and three year period. Ray I and was meeting with the Afghan government with members of the United Nations, of course, with our own state Department and military and what we concluded. Is that an Afghan army of about 70,000 Lightly equipped would be satisfactory to meet Afghanistan's security needs. We would be there is the guarantee earlier of sovereignty, but that's how it looked to us at that time we had about $500 million in aid. That we were offering to Afghanistan per year We have one or two signature infrastructure projects. Fundamentally, though we were concentrating our big development and diplomacy efforts in Kabul. You know, Ray, then by the year 2010. We've gone from at the time of 2000 and three which is going to be a 70,000 Men. Afghan force. 295,000 with a lot of heavy equipment with an air force 2000 and three about $500 million development aid 10 $2004.6 billion of development aid. 2000 and three were concentrating in Kabul. 2010. We have 27 civil affairs what we call provincial reconstruction teams scattered around the country. Many of them were allied NATO countries, but we've gone from focusing more narrowly on the central government to work everywhere across that country. And it's incrementalism. So by 2000 and five when I'm back as a commander, I recognized now 70 thousands not enough because Taliban has started to gain more strength and they've got sanctuary in Pakistan. So we decide Then with the Afghans agreeing. We need to increase the size of this army. More equipment, more training. We need to increase our developmental assistance budget. We need to be spread out further in the country. And with each step, we think at the time success as possible. But then, as we looked in a year later, more problems with corruption in the Afghan government more problems with Taliban and so it goes. It's just a continuing spiral in 2009. I can bury retired from the military and President Obama sent him back to Afghanistan, this time as US ambassador. Over the years, A lot of scorn has been heaped on mission creep and on nation building. Oh, there spit out like curse words in Capitol Hill debates, But it's as if the politicians didn't listen to their own scorn. We ended up nation building and from what you say it sounds like we fell prey to mission creep. We did indeed. Great. Yes. Well, there must have been a point along the way. Now you're one of the rare people who's been in Afghanistan, both wearing a uniform and wearing a business suit. And you have seen it from very high up the food chain. In both those structures. What have you learned? About the way people in uniforms talked to people in suits. Is there really effective communication about each other's ideas and goals generally and More specifically what we were doing in Afghanistan over those 20 years. Yeah, it's a great question. First of all, when the president decides to commit troops at scale Such as in Afghanistan or any rock. When, in the case of Afghanistan at the height of the surge, you have 100,000 troops in the country and you have a U. S embassy mission which is surge, But at the end of the day you've got about 1400 civilians in that mission in Kabul. So whose voice is going to be heard in Washington, D C. And here I'm talking about not only the executive branch, but in Congress, 100,000 troops are deployed. You're listening. Very careful to what the generals say, because it's a high risk operation. And once you put those forces on the ground, the military boys is the predominant voice. They have the resources and the president as commander in chief and Congress going back to the American people. They want to make sure that the military is getting everything they need. To get to victory. However, it's going to be defined, so that's point number one point number two and I think it's more profound point is that the United States executive Department. Our Department of State are U. S Agency for International Development. Our Department of agriculture, all which were invested heavily in Afghanistan. At the height of the surge rate, they are not designed. And organized, trained and equipped to do expeditionary operations at scale. We've done this three times since World War two. We did it once in Vietnam trying to do nation building we tried to do in Iraq we tried to do in Afghanistan. And we were not successful in any of those instances, the military on the other hand They are organized, trained and equipped and have doctrine to go into countries that are afflicted with violence or fighting civil wars, and that's their mission to go in. And fight a military campaign. But then you go beyond that the military then, as it thinks about fighting in these civil wars, they developed doctrine on how this should be done. And it's interesting when you look at the counter insurgency doctrine without us having enjoyed much success since World War two who's written the doctrine The military because the Department of State isn't organized and just not part of its normal mission to go into places like Afghanistan and try to figure out in a state that's consumed by a civil war. How are we going to build political institutions? How are we going to deliver? A new economy to this country and The military. Then, as they've developed this doctrine over time, they have a military component to it. But to be a comprehensive, logical doctrine, it has to have a diplomatic component, a development component..

Timur who is the next con and you one dynasty emperor as well as what he had to deal with during his short thirteen year reign in this episode yet again another succession war over the royal family. Another emperor colleague comes to the throne and he will last only about four years. His younger brother took over him and he tried to synthesize the un dynasty. I'll spend some time talking a little bit about the chinese civil examination system in the mongolian emperors responses to it and finally i'll briefly talk about other major world events. There were occurring during this time. The former con an emperor. Temur timur died without designating in air timor's successor. Kaixuan came to the throne after a violent conflict involving many imperial family members in leading officials. Sean is better known as kulak and he was born in the year. Twelve eighty one. He ascended to the colonnade and to the chinese dynasty throne in the year. Thirteen o seven. He took the chinese emperor name. Song lucon was timers nephew and was also a great grandson of kublai khan for those that are counting he would be the seventh grade khan of the mongol empire and the third you one dynasty emperor of course is i have discussed before kulik khan was only a nominal of the mongol empire immediately. He had a severe debt and inflation from within his realm and general discontent grew as a result of it. The value of the dynasty's paper currency devalued about eighty percent during his short reign. I'll talk a little more about this and just a bit one of the things you learn as you study. The yuan dynasty is that its deterioration can be partially explained by the lack of uniformity among their emperors kula cons. Rain is a perfect example. He was the opposite of his uncle. Timur khan in his political style remember temer strove to preserve his grandfather. Kubilay cons political legacy kuli khan had little of that preservation desire. He disregarded the previous systems and protocols. He did not make much effort to follow past practices in the designation of ministers and the necessary qualifications. Cooler concert ministration soon swelled in size with many unqualified officials. Part of the reason why kulik took his approach was his background i. He was young when he became the greek god. What experience he had was through his military background. He had been the supreme commander of the un forces in the steppe region. Immediately before his ascension to the throne a politician he was not hula. Khan was more the typical nomadic warrior and had no interest in statecraft and no patience with civil affairs or bureaucracy again. The opposite.

I have a strategy degree from the United States Army War College, which is a party war college, but nonetheless Look at things strategically. Is Trump the best candidate for 2024. I'm not sure because he comes in with a lot of baggage. He and some of that baggage Stuff he can't control he can't control. How? When the liberal see them. You know, they probably lose control of their platter and bowels. They go. It's on this. If he runs again, the Democrats could be excited. They're going to be motivated. They're going to be donating money. And the media is going to be all in now, Of course against her Republican media is gonna be be all in any way and we shouldn't let the enemy have a veto over our strategy. We have to understand that going in and that has to be part of our calculus. Is it fair? No. But we're adults. We don't talk the language of fair. That's for that's for teenagers go. It's not fair to make me do my homework. Don't talk to me about fair talk to me about how you are going to win. Who do I want to run in 2024, the person most likely to win the election. For the Republicans. Because, folks, it's existential. We got China going crazy and taken over. The Western Pacific. When it isn't sending horrible, horrible viruses are way we got gas lines and gas prices going through the roof. We gotta Middle East in flames. We've got inflation. We got racist theories being Injected into every aspect of our society sport. Entertainment, the media, academia government, our schools. Institutionalized racism. Which goes by the the nice name critical race theory. Okay, This is serious stuff, folks. We have got to win is trump the guy to do it? John in South Carolina is Trump the guy We should back in 2024 Excuse the labored Star Trek Pun, but it's great to talk to captain Kurt. I know you're a colonel. Listen, don't let that take the call.

That was when I was single, folks. There you go. There you go. Listen, I've every time I hear this question Come up about Donald Trump running again. I hear the steely Dan song. Do it again back, Jack, do it again. You remember that one? I do. And I also know what Steely Dan was named after Yeah, I do, too. And we don't want to go into that. We're not going there. It's a roadway. One truck it just just so you know I'm with you. I don't know what it is. My my My position in a nutshell. Is that Donald Trump is too big a target. And he simply I initially opposed Donald Trump for the very reason that I figured that his four years we're gonna be like what they were. And I was I was uncannily accurate in what was gonna happen doing and so I projected that and I just really did not want him to run until it came down to him and Hillary Clinton and it was at that point I went when I was. That's the easiest decision. I everyone wasn't it. And and so I am telling you have a rabid raccoon over. Hillary Clinton. Absolutely. But here's Here's Here's the thing for me. I really think he would do greater service to the country if he kept his head down and actually worked behind the scenes and went to some degree on silent running. And Yeah, that sounds like President Trump if he had a mission, and you have to really keep point. If he had a mission he could, and he's actually doing relatively well with it. I agree with you. I think he's I think I know you do, And that's the reason that that's the reason I suggested John, I'm gonna throw. I'm gonna throw a bank shot at you that you probably have heard. Yeah, and it's this and I'll keep it brief. Um If if there was if there were an open seat that he could run for the House of Representatives get elected and then become, um and then take over Nancy Pelosi's spot and then impeach both Trump and Harris. But excuse me impeach both Biden and Harris. I really think that it would be a good mission for him. Now. That would be enough..

The number of divorces recorded in China has fallen down by more than 70% since the introduction of this because they have these New coach, where you get what, like life demerits as to whether you're being a good human being or a good citizen or not, And people could just I guess randomly. Put stuff out there. I guess if they lied if they were caught lying, they get in trouble about your character. And you wind up Ah, losing privileges. So to speak, you know, and trying to them If they lied about you, wouldn't they lose life points? Well, that's cause Wouldn't that be a moral issue? Absolutely. How do you How do you go to check on this? What China, They know everything about you. There's a lot that you write about on that especially face a recognition technology. So anyway, the Ministry of Civil Affairs According to stats there. 296,000 divorces were registered in the first quarter of 2021. That's compared to 1.6. 1.6 million in the final quarter of last year. That's a drop of 72%. So they're basically giving you a month where you gotta chill out. With each other and as they steady the study increasing of divorces in China over the years, is due in part to what's called reduced social stigma. Greater autonomy for women. With wise, instigating more than 70% of those divorces. But the social the effects of economic social development Yang some cow, an official with the Ministry of Civil Affairs, Senate news coverage last year. Marriage and reproduction are closely related. Decline in the marriage rate will affect the birth rate, which in turn affects economic and social development. What's interesting there is saying phenomenon happening here. Even though China it was the rule that you could only have one child per household. Remember that? Well, now they're saying you could have more than one here in the United States. Also, we know that Americans had airborne In this country. We also are seen a decline in birth rates here in the U. S. By the way, it's nothing new for people who want to get a divorce after undergo. I would call that cooling off period. But here in Kentucky, for example, oftentimes when you're meeting with a divorce lawyer, they want you to take a step back. Uh, at least have counseling before you can Get the divorce. That's not in all cases, by the way, but in some cases, that's the way it goes. I understand it, and I don't know if other states have that as well. I know that's just getting in your business, but they want you to understand all of the Ramifications that can come with the divorce. So just interesting. I mean, especially That a lot of these nations, including China are having the same issues that we have with population growth, etcetera, etcetera, because it's interested they need They need to have babies have a need to have more people to help feed the mouths of of more Chinese people in that country and trying to develop this economy that one day they hope is going to surpass our United States.

"The hardest and you might understand this, working with the locals. They are some of the hardest working laziest people I've ever met. But I also described them as the laziest hardworking people I've ever met. I haven't been able to pinpoint which one I like better because they are so hardworking, but sometimes trying to get them to that point is like pulling teeth. But that whole, I love sitting down the tea or the chai and the bread and that whole sitting there. And just that familial aspect that they have is absolutely amazing. Right. By far, probably one of my favorite cultures that I've been fortunate enough to be a part of. Absolutely. I agree with you 100% I say. It's definitely unique. I don't think we barely had any interaction with Iraqis. But Afghanistan was a whole different ball game. I mean, I would do that job again in a heartbeat. Yeah. So yeah, so like I said, we would escort our job. We were the sec for the security force of the core PRT. So what we would do is, well, I told you what we did, but like I said, they would sit in the back seat. I eventually got staff sergeant. Becoming their record, right? Becoming a squad leader and we had a four day mission in this town called zorman. In the pocket of Providence. And we got the roster. And I saw it was escorting. Civil affairs officer named major Scott haggerty. So they went major haggerty. He liked to be in charge of the vehicle he was in. So I saw the roster, I knew he was going to take that shotgun seat like he does with everybody. And I was like, man, that's fine, dude. Tell you what, I'll be your gunner. All right? And I put my gun on Craig reigns as a passenger in an M rap. I believe it was an Emma, but we were in a 1114 up armor humvee. And in my vehicle, I was a gunner. Major Harry was shotgun. He was a commander. Specialist Derek Holland was driving. In the backseat was an Afghan governor. That was working with major haggerty on a few things that they were building in the area. So on the fourth day, we went to look at a site where we're going to build a school in the future. And we had to take a different route back to fob zormat. That's where we were staging every night. We were just sleeping on the little bob there and fueling up there. And we had to take a different route back as we left the school to head back. A lot of choking points get into the side of the school and this new route we picked on our blue force tracker our maps. Floppy toast. So we were looking at a different route. And this new route, we decided to pick none of us has taken it before, but it was open fields. Longer route, but it just seemed much safer than what we take. So all right, no harm no foul. On this ride Einstein, we're driving through this beautiful area that like I said before, none of us has been before. Like it was real nice. I saw a bright green grass for the first time. I've been in Afghanistan for three months and where we were at was really nice. And I came over the headset and I said, who the fuck is water the grass in Afghanistan? This is beautiful here. The next thing I remember, I saw nothing but black. And you know when you put your head underwater when you go swimming and it's like a noise you hear when your head is underwater it's like a faint noise. Yeah. That's the best way to describe what I was hearing at the time. And I felt the momentum. And in my mind, I'm saying to myself, what the fuck is going on right now? And when I came to open my eyes, big, beautiful sky. It's like two 30 in the afternoon. But why the hell am I on the ground? Holy shit. My feet are backwards. The full of blood. The vehicle is completely destroyed. Roof peeled right off. We just hit a roadside bomb. All I wanted to do was assess the situation. Jeez, what the hell is going on? What happened? Is anybody else hurt? Are we under attack right now? I don't even have a working weapon. I tried to stand up that obviously wasn't going to happen. I was completely fucking useless to everybody around me. There's nothing I could do. I heard my buddy, Joe vory. I'll get him in a body bag. Okay, people are killed. Is it us? Is it them? Is it Afghan police we were working with that day? What exactly was going on? My LT LT nailer, he got to me first and he looked at me and he said, look, I'll be right back. I have to check the other guys. He took off. I saw Craig ray is a guy who my gunner who I switched. He ran past me and he said, you're going to be all right, granny, we're going to get you out of here. He ran past and they called me granny. That was my nickname. We are old, so. He ran past me. Joe voda, the guy who the first voice I heard when I was on the ground. He came over, said a quick prayer to me. And then Doc Jones got to me finally. Doc Jones, whose name is Eric Jones, air force medic, by the way. He started working at me immediately. He said, Doc, how's everybody else doing? They're doing fine. We're working on them. We're going to get you guys out of here. Puts a tourniquet on me, still bleeding, put a pressure dressing on me, slows it down. Him and a few other guys, they pull that emergency cord off my vest. And they put me on a litter. And they carry me behind one of the M wraps. And when they carry me past the M raps, they walked me past two body bags. That was major haggerty, my buddy who took my seat that day. Major Scott haggerty, still water Oklahoma. And specialist Derek Holland a one gap Pennsylvania. I see their equipment on, I said a body bag. So I knew it was them. Derek just turned 20 years old. He was the youngest at platoon. And this is his last mission before he was going to go on leave. Wow. Heavy shit. So they put me behind amrap. They gave me a shot of morphine. I get all loopy and shit, and I'm just like, man, I love you guys. Thanks for saving my life. There goes my dancing career. The shit coming out of my mom. And they were telling me about it later. Finally, I heard the medevac chopper come down. And they picked me up and put me on a chopper. And before it left, two other people got on it as well. That Afghan governor who was in the backseat. And in Afghan police officer, who wasn't hurt, but he was going to continue to escort the governor. Okay. So chopper takes off and off we go to Bagram air base. All I wanted to do Einstein, now I'm like reflecting a little bit of what the fuck just happened like I'm trying to sit up a little bit and just kind of see how fucked up my feet are, right? And I kept getting one of these. Just keep pushing it back. Lay down, Ben. That's what it was. Yeah. I kept getting pushed back. Now, after about the second or third time, I want to look back and I'm thinking it's a door gunner. In the Black Hawk and it was that Afghan police officer. And I look up at him and he just looks at me and he shakes his head and he pecks the top of my head. Wow. And I thought to myself, man, fuck man, you know, that compassion. You couldn't talk to each other because you didn't speak the same language, but you guys talked. He knew..

"It was just such a small area that it was a huge hit on the community. Absolutely. 5 out of this area, which disastrous area. And then we back up 9 days prior to that was Billy Evans. He was also from that area. And Ryan ashwin was from Williamsport, which is like central Pennsylvania. But so we could say 6 were from northeastern Pennsylvania, especially in Susquehanna county, and I believe two of them were lackawanna county, which was sergeant George puglisi and sergeant Harrison. So you can imagine for a guard unit that has taken a heavy toll. Yeah, I think we had that conversation how it's not just, it's one thing when it's active duty, right? But when it's guard, it's impacting the community too, because not only just losing soldiers and fathers, sons, brothers. But you're losing whatever job they had too. Coworkers, police officers, firefighters, teachers, whatever they work. So when you came back from Iraq, did you have any issues? Did you see a change in yourself when you came back to, you know, we call the real life normal America, was there anything there? I was 22 years old when I returned from Iraq. And I feel there was a little bit of, you know, I think there was a lot of this, which was a mix of 22 years old. So I'm at that age. But a lot of it was, I think, it was hardship. Definitely losing friends of mine. Yeah. And it was, it was pretty heavy on how I was treating myself. Well, I mean, you said yourself, you went in for college. And no one saw the events that happened ten days after you got to boot camp. And now you're 22 years old and you lost however many friends. That and now you're 22 years old, and no 22 year old, regardless of any type of adversity in their life, probably I'd suffice to say, doesn't know how to handle their liquor, right? So on top of that, you've already been dealt a heavy hand. Correct. And you're also in a part of the country that probably doesn't have a lot of rules to begin with. So you probably got a lot of leeway from the community at large, right? I don't know, maybe they just said, oh, if you're at the local bar, oh, that's Earl, he served. That's cool. Let him know. And I'm a shot. I feel like I didn't make it that noticeable like I was a sloppy drunk mess, but I mean, I definitely was going overboard with how I was I think a lot of us were. I could imagine the guys in Ramadi. You know, they had credits given what credits do they had to have your hand? Absolutely. So I think their homecoming and the way how they acted were maybe a little different. Okay, I'll put it this way. My platoon Iraq. We had one Purple Heart. Gary Siegel. And his Purple Heart, they hit an IED. And he got a ruptured eardrum from the blast. That was it. Compared to compared to Romani, compared to those guys were money. So not for nothing back then, I'm surprised that in that time, that's pretty remarkable that he actually got a proper par for that. They were pretty strict back then. Yeah, I mean, now they realize how many of those invisible wounds are really messing people up. Right. As the war went on, but back then, it was like, yo, if you don't get shot, lose a leg, an arm, or something like that. You're not getting our apartment. Rupture your ears. That's actually surprising to hear, you know? Yeah, there was another platoons I remember in HHC, the scouts, they had a few purple hearts as well. But it was all minor stuff. You know what I mean? So initially, I feel like back to that homecoming. I think it was a little adjustment. Like I said, that is plum and I really adapted to the military culture. I love what I do and it was a 6 month training for the yearend country. So I was like, 18 months. So it was a long year and a half. And I loved it. You know, I wanted to do more of it. And you found your, you found your niche. Yeah, your passion and you found something that you wanted to do the rest of your life. It sounds like kind of growing up. If you were kind of doing this, you know, he didn't have a straight lane. He finally had that straight line, and you were going full bore. Correct. Until, you know, until they said stop. So now you say, hey, Joe. I'm kicking over to Afghanistan, and he's like, no, I'm staying back. I think you should too. I want to start a family. You're like, listen, I'm going. That's what happened, man. You know? Joe was employed as a corrections officer at state corrections institutional way more in Pennsylvania. So it was a state CO. And eventually he became a training NCO in the 109th infantry. So he's at act guard reserve. Which is I feel like everybody likes so I wore that uniform every day and was basically active duty. But and here I am off to Afghanistan. On this mission in Afghanistan, we're part of the PRT Providence reconstruction team. I always solve problems. That's the simple affair to me. I got to correct you to prevent reconstruction. I always call province reconstruct the team because I mean, we're reconstructing the provenance. Well, that's it in Rhode Island. So it might be the capital. I've been calling it Providence for all this time. And I know it wasn't the right word and I never gave a shit to look back. At this point, but the PRT all right. For some boots out there looking at me, like, what the fuck bearing? There's a sergeant major out there. He just made his creases a little bit more creased because he's not paying his phone. That's not what it is. Where's your pizza? Let's go back. I just wanted the safety breeze. That has to happen. All right, so what year is this when you go? This is 2008, 2000. We had a train up at four Bragg, and then we landed in Afghanistan. End of February 2008. Okay. And my platoon, we were the security force for the core PRT. And anybody familiar with the PRTs over there. The way how PRT is worth it would help rebuild infrastructure in Afghanistan. We renovated hospital in downtown gardens, which is in the pocket of Providence, big civil affairs job, just saying. Anyway, well, we worked a lot with you guys. Army and air force civil affairs. And renovated the hospital and guard as we're working at that, helping to rebuild parts of schools in Afghanistan in the epoch to Providence. And build wells for villages. So they're not traveling very far to get clean drinking water. So it was very unique mission. And our job in my platoon where the security force and we would escort so both fares. And U.S. civilian engineers, the point a to point B, we would escort them there. This is the back end of our humvees or M raps, whatever we had that day. And we would pull security while they have their meetings with local government village elders. And then back up and go back. It was very unique mission. I really enjoyed it actually. Learning a lot about the Afghan culture. And I always try to sit in on some of the meetings. I tell my squad. You guys pull security outside. I'll go inside with a sit down and need style, cover comes off. Females come, we give you bread, we're having meetings with elders and stuff like that. It was just so unique. It's one of my favorite cultures..

"You'll find it. You're very smart. All right. So we are talking about primarily the Illinois chapter. The Chicago organization. You guys are based here trip you're here until you deploy again. Now with the Army Previously with the Navy and still confused about that we'll talk about it later. So let's talk a little bit about because you are you are going to be deployed in in January. So how does this work with your job? You're a lawyer. And how does this work? So I found out probably four months ago that this deployment was definitely a possibility was on the horizon, and I was fortunate enough that there was a partner out in San Francisco from my law firm. Work it Reed Smith downtown, and I was able to reach out to him because in addition to being a partner at our firm Mountains and San Francisco, he's also a national guard colonel who's deployed twice when he's been in Reed Smith. So he was able to give me some sage advice. And, you know, kind of when I should let the firm known everything. And it's definitely a tough process is reserves, too worried about your job and your life and everything. So I let my firm know about three weeks ago that I was going to be leaving. I went down and told one of the partners. We want to lunch. Did a shot of vodka before I told him he thought I was quitting, you know? And I told Matt Hey, you know, I'm gonna be leaving for a year for deployment. The reserves and Matt just kind of laughed. And he's like, you know, this is an inconvenience. This is not a bad thing. He's like this is my personal opinion, but I'm sure the rest of formal shared We've got your back. You're one of the team now. And you know, Reed Smith is really blown me away from the top down the managing partner of the firm. Everyone has been completely supportive. And as reservists were protected by this law called you, Sarah. It says they have to have our jobs waiting for us unless there's a downsizing, therefore cause But if you leave a job and they're not like emotionally supportive of you, you really are concerned about that. So I've been very fortunate and blessed. My firm's been great to me. Everyone in the office has been very supportive. And you know, they've even gone as far to say is Hey now and December when you're about to leave your hours are probably going to drift. Don't worry about it. Spend time with your family, You know, Take care of the things that are important to you before you leave. So You know, A lot of people have bad experiences when they're getting ready to deploy with the reserve, and the law is always there to protect you, but it's been a really great experience for me. Yeah, all the more reason for us to make sure we mentioned Reed Smith, because yea for them, you know, I'm definitely looking forward to come back and working for them when I get back to Chicago. All right. So how long you gonna be gone? That's what I'll be gone for my job in from Chicago for about a year. I leave in January for three months of training that will be all over the country, Random Army bases and then my unit will deploy in April and we're scheduled to go to the Horn of Africa, which is Djibouti in the surrounding areas that a big conflict. Area. I don't think that's Ah, You know, It's not a big conflict area right now, and we hope it doesn't become one. My mission. When I go out there is we're going to be a part of a civil affairs unit. And so our job is to, you know, kind of Help the area's much as possible. We do nation assistance, so I'll go with the five man team and we'll roll out in the countryside and will meet with whatever village elders there. Whatever government officials there In some places you meet with whatever warlord is there and we look about Hey, what can we do to help you in this area, and the key here is with the Army is you don't want to go in and force Western values and force what works in the United States on them. S so I have a great team of guys. I've got a top Got a gentleman. One of my soldiers works at a dairy factory is a farmer by trade. Another one works at a construction company and the final guys and nurse out in real life. So the benefit we bring is being civilians in real life and in the reserves is that we can go into villages and we can interact with the civilian population. And we know what it means to be a police officer to be a lawyer to be a nurse. And you know what we focus on his projects that are sustainable and will last well after we've left. Okay, So now when you come back then Ah, year from January, so next next January ish next December, when you come back home where you're going to be able to do and again trip Adams is here with me today, talking about Team red, white and blue. You will have been out of your comfort zone out of your normal everyday enormousness. For a year. So this is going to help you re integrate. Get back into some social activities. Get back into your job. And And maybe if you're struggling with any of those have people to support you have been through it before. I really hope so. And I really think it will mean you struck upon a nerve with that one deployed twice active duty before and with active duty. You go out and you're with your same team with your same guys and gals.

"This is the Jaakko on Raveling podcast episode four. With Daryl, Cooper and me, Jaakko willink. And, we're about to pick up the thread. Of JAAKKO GOING TO WAR I WanNa read something from. Tom ricks book fiasco early part from the earliest part of the invasion because I want to give people an idea of. The fire. You were jumping into in September, October. Two thousand three, so the war started in March. and. The conventional forces the Iraqis the resistance in the cities. Is precisely the match for the US military that you think it is, and we burn through them and. The Third Infantry Division gets up into Baghdad quick. They take the airport they make their thunder runs through the city, and the regime collapses very rapidly. That's in March early April. And this passage is. Referring, to appear now April into May. Quote. Baghdad was falling apart in front of the eyes of the US military with buildings, being looted and parents afraid to let their children outside, but no one had orders to do anything about it. Looking back several years later, Colonel Colonel Allan King the head of Civil Affairs for three ID spoke of April, two thousand, three with slow chilled tone of horror and his voice. I got to Baghdad was told. You've got twenty four hours to come up with a phase four plan. On the night of April eight Colonel John Sterling Chief of staff of three ID came to me, and said I just got off the phone with the court chief of staff, and I asked him for the reconstruction plan, and he said there isn't one so you've got twenty four hours to come up with one. King was stunned. He had been asking for months for just such a plan and had been told that when the time came, he would be given it. Lacking clear orders about what to do once. In Baghdad, the Third Infantry Division more or less stayed in place in the capital. You didn't find many dismounted patrols with three ID recalled J. Garner a retired army general, not one to lightly criticize his old peers. Kind of stayed with their platforms. That is their. And Bradley Fighting Vehicles. On April. Sixth Lieutenant Douglas Hoyt a platoon leader with three. Id saw looters for the first time. I remembered looking through the sights on my tank at people and trying to determine if they were hostile or not, he recalled later. He didn't stop them. It was not our mission at the time. The divisions official actor Action Review. States that. It had no orders to do anything else. Quote. Third Infantry Division transitioned into phase four SASSO. That's a security and stability ops with no plan from higher H. Q. IT reported. There was no guidance for restoring order in Baghdad creating an interim government, hiring government and essential services, employees, and ensuring that the judicial system was operational. The result was. A power and authority vacuum created by our failure to immediately replace key government institutions. The president announced that our national goal was regime change. This is still reading from the thirty report. That our national goal was regime change yet. There was no timely plan prepared for the obvious consequences of regime change. As a matter of law and fact, the United States is an occupying power in Iraq even if we characterize ourselves as liberators. Because of the refusal to acknowledge our occupier, status commanders did not initially take measures available to occupying powers such as imposing curfews, directing civilians to return to work and controlling the local government in populous. The failure to act after we displaced the regime creating a power vacuum, which others immediately tried to fill. Now. I. Know that War is very confusing. Thing and nobody has a plan after the first punch thrown the fight. There were. Some decisions made in the earliest days of this war that I find pretty inexplicable specifically because they went against the advice of the military and the intelligence establishment, and they were made seemingly for ideological and political.
