China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close
"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I

Esper on the role of the military amid the coronavirus crisis
"More than twenty years now I've been interviewing various secretaries of defense that official overseas millions of uniformed and civilian personnel stationed around the world so when he agrees to meet you talk in person and you go to him typically you go to the Pentagon to the secretary's office which is long and narrow like the deck of an aircraft carrier and seems only slightly smaller when we talked with defense secretary mark esper yesterday it was different asper has shut down the movement of U. S. troops in ordered social distancing the rules apply to asper himself and limit the people in his office so we spoke by phone S. birth is a veteran a one time army officer well known in Washington after his military service he worked as a staff member in the Senate and for the defense contractor Raytheon his job now is to help fight the pandemic while also monitoring other threats how do you define the military's mission in this crisis I've identified three priorities for the United States military now in the few months that we've been dealing with the Kobe nineteen party number one is take care of our service members are civilians and their families property number to safeguard our mission capabilities those things we need to protect the nation the number three provide full support to the whole of government whole nation effort being directed by president trump yes it's interesting that number three there is helping the civilian population does that reflect what the priorities have to be you have to be ready to have a force that is ready to enact its normal mission yeah I I you know national security remains number one I think the American people expected all times we're going to defend them from adversaries beyond our shores and protect our interests abroad and to do that we have to take care of our service members that's our most important resource our most valuable asset our people and so I got to take care of them first we know you're sending seal hospitals we know that you're sending hospital ships to some of the worst hit areas but do you really have significant medical resources available given the scale of this problem yeah that's a great question and the fact is we we really don't do what we have great capacity force planning and logistics and things like that when it comes to supporting civilian authorities but in terms of of hospitals we have a limited capacity maybe a few thousand beds if you will at most to provide because keep in mind that most of our capacity are deployable field hospitals geared toward treating trauma patients so their structure configured that way not in terms of supporting a person's with infectious diseases by the same token a majority of our military doctors and nurses and other medical professionals are reservists who also have civilian jobs in the same field so we're very conscious as we deployed both the assets and the people that we're not taking somebody from a civilian hospital working with Kobe nineteen patients in one part of country to another part of the country to deal with the same problems are you also having to withhold some resources because you don't know how big a corona virus outbreak you might face there is that and I need to make sure I retain some capacity for deployable force in case we get some type of conflict somewhere there was a commander at a big U. S. base in South Korea who sealed the base and has been praised sense because if I'm not mistaken there was only one corona virus case there even when there was a serious outbreak in South Korea since then of course there are hundreds of other coronavirus cases within the U. S. military and various other parts of the world how do you evaluate the military's job at protecting itself against this outbreak in the last couple of months it generate rooms it has done a great job of recreation and he helped this update our plans with regard to how you deal with corona virus and how it spread so we've been able to put a brake on the spread at this point time of the hundreds of thousands of military persons out there we have thank goodness only two hundred twenty seven cases right now it's two hundred twenty seven more than I would prefer to have and I've been able to call up and talk to a few of the service members but I think the policies and actresses we put in place of held us in good stead right now
A Rosenberg by Any Other Name?
"I'm Jason La Steak and I'm really excited to welcome Geraldine. Good a fan and Kirsten from left to the podcast today. To talk about Kirsten's book a Rosenberg by any other name. A history of Jewish name changing America Josie could offend. It's a scholar of modern your studies currently teaching at American University. She received her. Phd In history from Brandeis University in two thousand eighteen and her research is focused on migration gender and the intersection of law and religion in French. American Jewish history. And we're also joined of course by Kirstin from Agla who's an associate professor at Michigan State University's Department of History her book Rosenberg by any other name. Which we're GonNa talk about today explores the history of name changing in the US in the twentieth century and her first book American Dreams and not nightmares looked at secular Jewish intellectuals. Use of the Holocaust in the early nineteen sixties. Thanks Jason I'm Geraldine. I'm very excited to talk with Kirsten today about her book on Jewish name changing in the United States. I was really fascinated to read Christian books because he deals with so many different things. And one thing that really stood out is the question of the types of economic and social anti-semitism that juice faced in the twentieth century. And this is a story that has been obscured both in how American Jews tell their own story and how they really name changing itself. But it's also a topic that has been obscured largely in the history of American Jews. And so a lot of the discussion with Kirsten really centered on the question of how everyday life of Jews in America were is shaped by anti-semitism and how American Jews del their own story in their recounting of how juice change their names in the twentieth century. I hope you'll enjoy this conversation. Kirsten hiding for joining the Jewish history matters podcast. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited so I actually wanted to start with a joke. That's awesome so it's actually a French. Joke offense Jewish joke as I understand it. So it's a story of Mister Meshu Shoe Katzman. We'll goes to the French authorities in the early twentieth century because he wants to change his name. A finds that cats minis for to foreign sounding Fort Jewish sounding so he asked no. Would it be possible to change the name and the French official tells him yes? Sure Okay so what's your name Katzman. So he breaks cats on into to any asked him. So what does that mean in German and the Jewish men says it means Shah Cat in English Okay what does men mean and the men answers it means lum the men so essential official says okay. Katzman you are no no longer cats men but shallow brilliant. It is marvelous because it's really about how your revealing I see in the process of trying to conceal it as you say in the book. Jewish name changing is no laughing matter. We have a lot of jokes involving name changing but it is in fact a very serious topic and so I wanted to start the conversation by asking you why it is such a serious topic and also what do you mean by name changing because I think the readers need to understand what that meant in the American context so the first thing that's really important to say is I only looked at one archive when space for name changing which was official name changing in civil court. It wound up being incredibly rich space. But there's lots of other places in lots of other ways that people could change their names for example. When I started talking about my work I had immigration. Historians say but this is not the only kind of name changing that happens if immigration memoirs you can see and I teach for my students memoirs where people decide to change their name on the shop floor. You know all the people they work with at the sweatshop. I'll sit around and spend the day talking about what your new American names should be. There's definitely kind of informal name changing people sort of take on names and the US among if not the than among the most flexible places in name changing you can really informally. Change Your name to anything. You want without any kind of permission or official status whatsoever. And it's legal this Anglo American law that the US actually took it even to a greater extent in England in some ways on sort of informal name changing people's selecting names because they like them because it sounds good. Those actually are are themselves legal so people can really change their names to anything so because I was using official name changes in city in civil court. I was looking at people who chose to do so officially who chose to be having the state know about their name changing and so- choosing to look at official name. Tinging meant that I was also looking not just at the state it wound up meaning also that I was looking at other kinds of people who might be interested in your name private employers or universities or other kinds of places and spaces where they might these surveillance you. I think maybe watching you questioning. Why your name looks different from one place from the other? What I saw gave us a real insight into the impact of the anti-ageing and the importance of it which is actually kind of your second question right. Why is this important? Why is it serious? A lot of what I've found in the archives. I mean I think a lot of people would have found it boring people's reasons for changing their names if you didn't spend a lot of time looking at them. They were very boring. I want to change my name because it's hard to spell because it's hard to pronounce equal can't remember it. It's hard to say on the telephone. You know a lot of sort of things like that so you had to kind of read through the lines but also some sad stories people who would talk about being excluded in the military people who talked about their employer telling them they had to change their name when they got promoted people who wanted to erase memories of having escaped Germany during World War Two. There are a lot of those sad stories and in other kinds of readings. I did oral history is that I did. It's not always you know. Sort of a tragedy. But there's a lot of lingering sadnesses there's a lot of lingering ambivalence and I think the larger part of the story is people feeling like they had to do this. Some of the interesting part of looking at the state and the government's interest in doing this right and sort of making name changing available to people so easily right so readily you can change your name. Go ahead and change. Her name is volunteerism. The circumstances under which they're changing their names are not free and open they are constrained. They are significantly constrained not forcibly coerced. But they are constrained and sometimes they are being asked to or told to change their names by employers by military officers by defense industry contractors by people who kind of represent some kind of power and have interactions with Stay or certainly with their possibilities of getting a job and living in America. I think it's interesting that everybody's treated this so much as a joke that no scholar studied it. You know which I find really interesting right. That people have so far. Brush this and treated it as something that was not serious that was insignificant or Hurace. Something that was not really important so you actually mentioned the state a few times so I wanted to ask you about the state. What's at stake in controlling names and name changes from a state perspective so the federal government begins asking about name tinges voluntarily on Naturalization Petitions in nineteen of Sex. It is voluntary. It's just a line on your naturalization petition so I only did a very limited look at naturalization petitions but I found at least a few where somebody clearly had changed their name so that it looked very different but clearly the people setting this out that they didn't fill out a name change like the government didn't see this change in spelling as actually being a change in name. So there's a certain amount of laxity that European grants are being treated with in their ability to change their names so my story more begins with really World War One and then especially the Inter war period and World War Two and it spirals as the welfare state as the government begins to be concerned with issues of security and be concerned that the people standing in front of whatever federal worker may not be who they size so one of the most important things I think that leads to the nineteen forties in particular being. Sort of the place. Where you see. More of these official petitions being submitted than any other time in the twentieth century is that the government decides that during World War Two. It actually happened in nineteen ninety eight. They begin having defense. Contractors require birth certificates on so they can ensure the safety of their defense plates. So you see beginning in the nineteen thirties forties this kind of spiraling new. People start to have to produce their birth certificates in order to get jobs to become a part of the war effort which is where the jobs are happening and then as people begin to register for the draft or as they begin to be officers they are getting inconsistent right. It's not I don't think this is every single person who goes to apply to become an officer or to register for the draft or even to try to work for the defense industry but what you get is just more and more people who are getting defense contractors or officers or rotc people or whoever saying. Oh your name doesn't match you know you're going to have troubles you know you need to come back. And produce a birth certificate that matches so some of this is about security right security as the country is going to war and I think some of it is just about the government beginning to look to documents. They are trying more during the welfare state especially during the war to keep track of. Who's who I didn't see a lie. That was necessarily pushed by the Alien Registration. Act But that is something that is starting to begin to question people who have not become citizens yet so my gases that is playing a sub textual role in some people's decisions to do this. The state is beginning to keep track of people and so this kind of very open ended name policy which was working really to sort of bring white immigrants into the country and enfold them seamlessly as the US goes to war as it begins to offer benefits like welfare benefits but also especially as it begins to go to a second war it begins to want to keep track of people and it's using names as part of that way of kind of keeping track of
"defence contractor" Discussed on The CyberWire
"And joining me once again. Is Emily Wilson she's VP of research at Derby. 'em Labs Emily it is great to have you back I wanted to touch base today about some things that I know you all are tracking when it comes to Account takeovers in this whole notion of access as a service service. What can you share with us today? Sure happy to be back. So one of the things that we're tracking here that we've been tracking for a while is the way that services scissor developing in criminal marketplace's we're all familiar with account takeover. We know that credentials are being sold and marketed for fraudsters to then go takeover accounts themselves elves. But there's something that's been developing over the last couple of years and over the past few months in particular that I'm thinking of as access as a service so instead of having being credentials to go take over an account yourself. For example of vendor might offer what is essentially a value added service of saying. Hey what are you trying to Do can I do that for you. Can I get you there with some additional benefits or resources that I have on my end so you can enjoy all of the fruits of the Labor her without taking on the risk yourself. Can you give me an example so this is largely currently at least around travel or hospitality brands so you could think about transportation companies or perhaps hotels for example. Say you want to stay at a hotel and you want to have all the benefits of you've someone who's been staying at that hotel for twenty years and has the points and the tiered access and you know the platinum diamond. We know whatever you want to call it tier uh of access. This would give you an opportunity to book a stay with them or perhaps book some sort of travel using all of those benefits at some points in tier status without having to for example takeover. An account that has those someone else is going to take care of that for you. I would still be able to book it as myself myself but then someone else would have a bank of stolen points or whatever. Those sorts of benefits are that they would apply to my stay. For example one example there are a few different ways can manifest depending on the vendor. But it could be that they're going to bump up your account for you and maybe that they're going to stay using somebody else's legitimate points. This gets into really interesting questions about the development of the insider threat model or is question of the militias actor having ongoing ongoing access. And it's just trying to cause some havoc it's a really interesting development. It's something that I'm planning on keeping an eye. On what does this say in terms of the maturation of the market. Here here that these things are available as service one. I think it's interesting to see. What sort of brands are appearing for these kinds of services you you know what sort of brands that have points or status or loyalty rewards are then trickling over our then generating demand and in these criminal communities? We've seen it for a long time with things like beauty brands that have points but then airlines and hotels are a natural next step so then what comes after that right. What where is this going to go? And I think that's a really interesting angle. The other angle here is what other areas areas are vendors going to take on additional risk to offer a value added service to their fraud consumers. How does this fit into the maturation of the overall fraud? Economy and not just the account takeover or account access wing a fraud. I'm curious to see where this goes. You know it's interesting. How the it seems like the barriers to entry continue to be lowered to be lowered? I think not only in the the classic criminal communities communities as we might consider them the ones that are on the dark web or in the deep web but also as we see this kind of this fraud demand of this fraud marketing spillover into things like like social media. How does that impact your buyer base if you have previously had a buyer base that's primarily cybercriminals on cybercriminals forums? Who are are of a type who are used to engaging in this kind of activity if you then take that and make it available to people who are in a facebook group or perhaps they're on twitter? Is Somebody going to be interested in dipping their toe into some of these. What may seem like victimless or sort of low level frauds to say say yeah I want access to stream that TV show? Who am I harming? How does that begin to open up demand from different parts of the market and are there people people who are going to see this and say yeah you know actually if I can travel first class and I'm not going to get caught which is a big question mark? Maybe I'll try that I'm sorry I think I think we have a lot to watch play out here all right. We'll Emily Wilson.

United Technologies + Raytheon Creates An Aerospace And Defense Giant
"O'clock. You wonder what the impact is going to be with Raytheon's merger, right? Right beyond the massive US defense contractor best known for manufacturing, the patriot missile defense system as agreed to merge with industrial technology giant United Technologies in an all stock deal. The two companies announced over the weekend Newport daily news reporting the combined company would be the second largest US aerospace company behind Boeing, newly formed Raytheon technologies would be combined with United Collins aerospace, and Prenton Whitney, both leading producers of jet engines, and engine parts. It would not inherit United to carry us air conditioner business or it's Otis elevator company, both of which are being spun off under terms of an earlier deal. So in a phone interview, executives from both companies said the deal was driven by a desire to create a leading aerospace technology company using state of the art hardware from the defense and commercial aviation industries. But what about the people, the combined company when employees more than sixty thousand engineers would have. About thirty eight thousand active patents and whenever the financial firepower to invest as much as eight billion dollars each year in research and development. But as we all know any of us who have been caught in a merger or a sale heads
Raytheon and United Technologies Announce Merger
"Technologies has doubled down with an all stock deal to merge with defense contractor Raytheon the combined company valued at more than one hundred billion dollars after planned spinoffs would be the world's second largest aerospace and defense company by sales behind Boeing with annual revenue of about seventy four billion dollars this year. It will make everything from engines and seats for jetliners and thirty five jet fighters to patriot missile launchers and space, suits, for astronauts, the new company will be named Raytheon technologies which according to the journal, it's new executive called a merger of equals.
Raytheon, United Technologies to merge, creating defense giant
"One files the corporate news of the day. The all stock transaction merger of equals, it's being called joining the giant defense contractor, Raytheon with the giant, aerospace company, United Technologies forming the more giant, if not, especially imaginatively named Raytheon technologies, one files that transaction under the heading done. Have you seen the defense and aerospace businesses lately? If the deal does make it pass regulators, the one hundred billion dollar result would be the number two company in that space behind Boeing. So marketplace's Kimberly Adams gets going with some market based realities from Washington Raytheon and United Technologies say the mergers important for them to keep their balance in shifting markets. Doug gates is head of aerospace and defense for KPMG. They're looking at it in this. Acquisition to a long term view that this combined company will be able to ride the ups and downs of the markets Raytheon has a big defense contracting business. United Technologies is big in commercial aviation. If commercials slowing down, they've got large military my and vice versa. Another reason behind the merger the idea that bigger is better risen McCormick is a fellow at the center for strategic and international studies. The merger would create a company that would bribe Boeing and Lockheed as largest defense contractor continuing trend of consolidation that's been ongoing since the nineteen ninety s that consolidation worries President Trump. He expressed concern this morning that too much consolidation in the defense industry may raise prices for the US military and by extension taxpayers. But Gerry McGinn executive director of the center for government contracting says this merger is unlikely to face a lot of pushback from federal. Regulators because there's not a tremendous amount of overlap between these two companies in terms of the markets. They operate it, but government regulators do have to approve the final deal among them the combined company's biggest customer, the department of defense in Washington, I'm Kimberly Adams for marketplace.
"defence contractor" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"Funded by, the same multinational corporations defense contractors, and special interests that profit from military buildup okay Rachel put a lot out there We'll let our guest respond Or miss First, of all I think I think you hit the nail on. The head Rachel. About this this, you know using populism is sort of a. Bad term when we say right, up front this report that populism is not necessarily bad where we worry about populism being bad is when leaders that use appeal to like real emotional and an. Actual problems people are facing to gain, political power and then they start to if they then start to damage or dismantle the institutions. Of democracy, I mean I think we've seen this really clearly in Hungary where there's no longer free press where the courts are all the Holden, single leader and where you know the idea that there's a viable political opposition is basically is basically gone on the broader issues. You raise I think I really do think it's a dangerous place to get where we start sort of blaming the west for Ladimir Putin's, regional aggression whether, it's Georgia whether it's whether it's Ukraine there is there is a A track record here of. Russia using military, force to actually invade its neighbors and impose its will on. Its neighbors and. The countries that, that hasn't happened to so far are those. That are actually in NATO so, far from and I you know in our own president said it for our from a country you know joining NATO being something that's provocative or somehow it's going. To provoke Russia into action like the, actual evidence is that it deters Russia from aggression and that's why one of the reasons that. I continue, to think the NATO alliance is extraordinarily important and there's another very important point to make and Rachel I become an I think both, agree with you about the loose use of this term populism to basically denote guy I don't like that has become a lazy. Habit on the part of any number of our compatriots and and we actually we try to address this in the report where I really, disagree with you, is on this question of of whether there's been nonstop War I would point out to use it between nineteen. Fourteen and nineteen forty five hundreds of millions of people died on European soil let's say let's say tens of millions if, you want, to really really be, conservative that has not been the case, since nineteen, forty five it has not been the case in Europe it has not been the. Case in the United States and while we do certainly face. Challenges I with the Soviet Union and then with the collapse of the Soviet space and and from, the Middle East and from Asia I would say that, that one hundred, years ago, we talked about the threat that Europe represented and given the economic importance of Europe to. The United States given the unbelievable partnership that we have actually we shouldn't be taking this for granted it is it is, something very real it needs help but it's something very real and it shouldn't be dismissed from earned dependent line Peter from Massachusetts high Right here in great job as usual Born here Expand enormously I would like to just shift the discussion Pick know As you look at what's unfolding in terms of the breaking news, this morning Microsoft ring another Russian attempt to get into the American electoral process the fact that the Russians are doing their regional territorial expansion plan and. Executing on it as we speak is something which the Dutch watched with special unlike all the other NATO countries got you're still still focused on the fact that dozens of their country Out of the sky That and attempts by Russia to send that message. To other European countries whereas. It just an accident what was the circumstances that? Led up to it all those things change the still unresolved Okay Peter but. Peter thanks so Peters exactly right that the Russians and not just the Russians I really I want to underscore this is this is a major Russian problem but it's not just the Russians so the story that that Peter's. Referring to thank you for that because it's an interesting story is in the paper today that Microsoft, discovered that that Russian that Russian agents were trying to infiltrate the, websites of think tanks this is something of interest to me as people at. Think, tanks and that they, in this case it. Was towards conservatives trying to trying to influence but also, to but also to infiltrate in order to use the information. In order to spy frankly I will tell you Peter and and others this happened. To my own organization about. Ten years ago and it was the Chinese who? Did exactly the same thing exploitation is Is something that is intrinsic, to our free society and trying to find that. Balance, between, that free, society and the. Safeguards that are necessary to keep the bad guys the North Koreans, the Russians the Iranians Chinese out of it are are a big, challenge and the thing that troubles. Me just to kind of try and pull it back a little bit to what we've been talking about on this on this challenge with our partnership is that is that too many of those who have risen up in. Europe in particular on both the left and the right have taken Russia's side on these things taken, the line that we heard just a moment ago that no it's, not it's not the Russians fault it's we who are provoking the Russians and. It's, they who are worried, and we should be. Doing more we online lapenne the candidate extremist rightist candidate, in the French elections taking direct money for our political campaign. Two times Era we're, talking, about millions of yours from Russia. We see the same thing across the company so there's this is this is really a challenge that we face and the right thing to do is not to turn around and call people agents of, Russia or to, or to, jump up and down and say you know the president has been bought or or things like that it is to recognize that we together need to build up answers to this that protect people and protect their safe guards and protect our societies which is which are actually under genuine threat in places like Hungary I've just add that this this Microsoft revelation this morning shows how creative and adaptive Russia in particular has been getting into and and interfering with democracy and it's, a little. It's a this is actually. Much more worrying than money or threats and bullying this is sort of it is it is it's hard. To see it's it's it leaves all yes insidious it's really difficult, to get it and that's actually exactly the kind Threat where what we need to see is is different. Parties within the is coming, together to say like whatever it is we're not going to stand for for foreign meddling inside our systems the hacking of. Emails and stealing of. Of personal, data of our citizens and then we sort of unify around that and the fact that we're having. Trouble doing. That is evidence that. The this kind of campaign is, it, can be very successful this is. Charlie from New York Republican line Yes good morning can you hear me okay, you're on go right ahead okay let me give you three reasons why. This discussion is a waste of time number one Turkey and the regional member of NATO was a secular Muslim country from the time of which Dr KOMO attitude at Albuquerque.
