"This week, we've got Marseille, and we've got Doha, which are both two 50 events, we've also got the 500 out in Rio and for the women, it's mostly the WTA 1000 in Dubai. There's also a two 50 out in Mexico that Merida open. But Andy Murray has already been providing entertainment and drama as usual. Funnily enough against Lorenzo sonic, who has spent more than one second on a tennis court because they actually played each other and was two and a half hour long match. Andy Murray saving three match points, Joel big Murray fans. Are we ever just going to get an unproblematic Andy Murray victory because it doesn't feel like we're going to get one any time soon? Yeah, I was curious to see how this was going to go because you got a wildcard had a very wild Australian open, very memorable Australian open, so it was keen to see him continue that form. Looks like he has been able to in the same Andy Murray vain that we know fighting to the bitter end. And it's also great to see Liam Brody as well come through qualifying. He's in the second round and we've got Murray versus zverev and we've got Liam broady, Daniel Medvedev. So I thought, yeah, that could be quite an interesting one. I mean, Daniel Medvedev, that's a Rotterdam Rotterdam to Doha rather than Rotterdam to maybe Marseille was a bit of an interesting one to me, but yeah, be curious to see how that goes. Probably more money in Doha, I would imagine. I mean, the field actually in Doha is pretty tasty, 'cause I was looking at it compared to the Rio open, which is a 500. I mean, the drawers in Doha and to be honest in Marseille, they are stronger than what has been served up in Rio if I'm gonna be honest. Yeah, often happens. A lot of players don't really want to go and play the clay court event salmon. It's hard to convince people I feel to go play that 500 if you haven't already played the build up two 50s out in South America. Yeah. I mean, I suppose all eyes really, especially on the women's side, the big event out in by the 1000 event. If you look at the first round drawers, I mean, it's like the semifinals finals of Grand Slam really start some of the match ups that you kind of got. It's such a stacked fill. But, you know, we were saying that about Doha last week and then look what happened. She on tech wins very comfortably. But Chris, do you have your eye on any particular match ups that are due to hopefully take place in Dubai. And any definitely more looking at the burrito open. Yeah, I'll throw you a bone up saying I'm very much looking forward to we've got some tasty section of the drawer there, which is Garcia, keys, and it's over and Azarenka. One of those is going through to make, I think that would only be a quarterfinal. So that does shows you how stacked that field is. And then if you look a bit further down in some of the less high profile tournaments, I'm obviously a Mexico. Where Joel and I, I think, will be glued to this. We've got his favorite magdalena don'tt is back in action as the number one seed. And my favorite Sloane Stephens, the number two seed, and also throw in an elysia parks. And I think that's Joel's dream tournament. I think we might be over in Mexico. And Chris parks and Stevens are playing with each other in the doubles. So everyone caught crying out right now. I'm gonna have to set an alarm on my phone for those matches. The meeting, the metaphorical meeting of two thirds of the tennis weekly podcast happening right now. They just need to Caroline Garcia down the other end. I think we would have booked a flight then. I'm pretty sure we would have booked it. We would have gone there for subway intermediate, yeah, definitely. We can expense it. No, we can't. Sorry. But yeah, on that note, I mean, we'll be back next week to talk about how Sloane Stephens got on in Merida. Doubles only. Doubles only, of course. I'm also curious to see if cam norrie is just going to play alcaraz again in the final of Rio and lose as has happened last week. I feel like that could be quite a likely outcome. But yeah, we'll be back next week to round up all of those events as usual. And we'll also catch up on how Joel enjoyed his pancakes and inside the crate work or not. I've got to go follow through now, haven't I? I'm going to go to the shops right now and get stocked up now. Yes. I hope you enjoyed our latest episode of the tennis week podcast.

"I think David itch for kino was playing very well in Medvedev lithium is coach being like I don't really believe in my game and it's probably going to end up being a 6 four 6 four result he said. That's why he had that sort of the rolling sort of motion because he said just continue play and keep playing you play yourself into form. So that was probably one of the biggest results of the tournament because if you hadn't got that together, we wouldn't be seeing the resurgence of him here. Are there other results to say anything? I think he did well to pick up a two 50 last week, but against Medvedev I don't think it ever looked like he was going to get that done after that first set. I think he had a really clear game plan in the first set and then he was just trying to pull the trigger too early. Like he was out of ideas. And you have to be really patient against someone like Medford, especially on an indoor court. And for me, it was kind of the lack of point construction in that last set. It just felt like a bit of a foregone conclusion. So there was some good matches earlier in the week I'd say, obviously with holger, it's a shame that he was injured and he had to pull out. I think he'd been playing too much tennis. I was shocked that he went from Davis Cup straight to Montpellier and then to Rotterdam. And I think if you take an example of someone, someone like eager, who's taking some time off, she looked fresh as anything, and she's even fresher after barely stepping on court this week. So I think maybe it would be good for some of these sort of players who are really plugging your weight at the moment. Such as senator, he's playing this week as well. To take a bit of time and kind of get their heads straight and get themselves into peak condition because it did it like physically. He was struggling. It's quite difficult with scheduling, isn't it? I did enjoy the fact that we did get a Stan Wawrinka Richard Gasquet second round match in 2023. That's a three. It's funny you mentioned Gasquet because I think this cues are newest segment. Who is the current top freshman? In 19 ranking. French male player I believe in the top 50. He seems to be. Wow. He just seems to be perennial, still doing it. On the tour, which is fair blade. He's got an incredible longevity. But yeah, I was almost a little bit surprised because yeah, because favreau defeated public. I know public has been on a bit of a losing streak. I think he stopped that today. And Gasquet came through PCBs. So yeah, I was quite a vintage vintage throwback match up there. And it was nice to see I think Grigor Dimitrov get to a semifinal. I think it's always nice to see him play well, get to the far end of a big tournament. And you had some very good wins, particularly against de manor, third set tiebreak, was very, very fine. Had an incredible passing shot winner on match point. Quite light seeing Dimitrov do well in that bottom half of the draw. Yeah, I'm surprised bublik has any rackets left to play with and to borrow one I heard. That's the way to Kim. Shouldn't go smashing them around, should he? And just one last thing on Rotterdam, Joel, I know you are a purveyor of slightly odd tour level trophy. The Rotterdam trophy explain, it's like, I can't really make kettle turn. It's like, it's a very odd one. It's like a square that YouTubers get as a kind of a celebration if they get like a 100,000 subscribers. They go like a plaque. And I wonder if that was the inspiration behind what Medvedev is seemingly holding, which I feel looks more like a plaque than a trophy, a window of an is hotel? Yeah, it looks like something that would be in the waiting room of a spa or salon. It looks like something you nicked from the ice hotel in die another day, doesn't it? It does a bit. But at least he's got himself a pretty hefty paperweight, you know? Yeah, or doorstop. But we know anything goes, anything goes when it comes to making up the trophy design of an ATP and WTA Tour event. It's stackable Joel. That's quite good. Stackable, unlike some of them, which are quite pointy, you might not get the Paris masters. It goes very true, yeah. Yeah, at least you can transport the roster on one home. That would be quite cool. Actually, for like, imagine like rapha, you know, he's one like Barcelona like 11 times or whatever and actually each trophy was like a jigsaw or a part of a puzzle that completed a mosaic or something, I don't know. It'd be quite funny. Let's have a look at what happened out in Delray Beach, which is the ATP two 50 event. Cam norrie, I think, was the defending champion here, but had elected to play in Argentina instead. Which we think is to do with the fact that he was in Colombia for Davis Cup just prior. So yeah, defending champion not out in Delray Beach. But a whole plethora of as you would expect American players, as it's on their home turf. And it was an American player who won because it was Taylor Fritz, who came through to clinch this title up against the Serbian mirror mirror in the final 6 love 5 7 6 two. So a bit of our second set hiccup for Taylor Fritz, but he managed to come through pretty comfortably either side of that second set to get the title. This is 5th ATP tour title and his first of the season. Chris, what did you make of the final and Taylor Fritz this week? He was the top seed. So theoretically on paper, it was his to lose looking at kind of the other players that we had in the draw. Yeah, I think it's one of those two 50s that we talked about. I think last week that you expect the top seed to come away with a bit like organic center, took the two 50 in Montpelier and I think it was similar results in the WTA where not similar because we thought sakari would be the top seed that would seal it. So it doesn't always happen. It can be especially playing at home. It can be a tricky one to get over the line when there's all that home support for you, but obviously he likes playing in front of a home crowd. Picking up the title, obviously Indian Wells last year. In terms of the tournament as a whole, I think it's obviously a very dominated by mail players. It's a shame that Ben Shelton didn't go further. I mean, American players I should have said, but I was going to say I was one.

"Gonna leave it, but listeners, if you want to go have a listen, it is on Spotify, just type in Lorenzo's sonic and you can go, you can go here in all its glory. I think it's, I agree with you, Chris. I think it's a decent song. And who knows? Maybe he is thinking because I'm thinking, you know, players love to come out. You're a vision. It's very Eurovision game. It is. I'm not thinking Eurovision. I'm thinking, you know, players coming out to walk on music in specifically indoor arenas. If I'm Lorenzo sonic, for me, that's free PR. I'm telling the DJ, play my song, otherwise I'm not coming out. I'm not sure you'd want just a second unless you're winning the match, otherwise it's over before it started. Yeah, bad Amon. No, I love that. I'm gonna go give his channel, listen. As soon as we finish recording, and I suggest our listeners do the same whether you like it or not, check it out. Let's look at the actual tennis now, but one player who, yeah, it was probably on and off the court in just a second, likes on a go song. Was eager to contact because she won her title in Doha without breaking a sweat, really. She was on and off very sharpish in all her matches. A winning the title for the loss of just 5 games across the whole tournament, a lot of players would lose 5 games in a set, let alone across four matches. She actually only plays three matches. She had a walk over and a buy in the first round. But when she did play and take to the court, you know, it was 6 love 6 one over Daniel Collins, then she had a 6 love 6 one over Veronica coup d'etat, and then a 6 three 6 love against Jesse pegula. Now these are not players who are down in the dumps of the rankings. They are players who are at the higher echelons of the game. Chris, was this just beyond tech back to her absolute best dominant form or does this indicate a wider problem, perhaps with the fact that players of a similar ranking are just not able to compete when Sri Lanka is playing decent tennis. It's a bit of both I reckon, clearly she was playing well, but the conditions in Doha are quite challenging in the sense that you do get some swirling wind. And I think it's about your ability to be able to adapt to it. And I think that's something that eager is very good at. We've seen her when in the very cold October in Paris, I think it was. When a lot of players were struggling with those conditions, I was very surprised by the Collins result, particularly that is very surprised because she's not a player that kind of gives you a win. Normally she'll find a way to dig deep or should be able to lift her game. So I think she must have been playing some pretty exceptional tennis, even though it doesn't look like much resistance was put up by some of these top players. Sounds like there was more wind resistance than resistance. That's a good way to sum it up, Joe. But I was a little bit disappointed. Yeah, we didn't get the schwinn tech bench quarterfinal. I mean, we should have got shion tech Azarenka. I don't bench did immensely well to kind of come through that very long match. I mean, she lost the first set 6 one and has a rank of really did have it on her racket. But yeah, I was a little bit disappointed. We didn't get that match up because I did think that those were, you know, they are two of the players who world number one and Ben chic probably one of the most formed players on the tour at the moment. So maybe bencic would have been able to take to the court would have given her a better run for her money. But yeah, I was interested to read about Sri tech and her mental approach and how she was talking about, you know, focusing not necessarily on the WTA rankings based off of the last year results, but actually just on the race, which is just your results from 2023. And I thought I was really interesting perspective because we're all talking about, oh, how many points has she got to defend? Is that pressure going to get to her? Well, it sounds like she's just using this to kind of block that out and just think, well, I've just got this year. I'm not going to compare and look into the past. All I'm going to do is focus and look ahead and perhaps again, that's what has helped her in this tournament and just focus on the situation at hand. Yeah, I think that's quite a sensible strategy actually, because every year, whatever we're doing in our lives, we're a different person, you know, from month to month, year on year, we have different experiences, different things we can build on. So it's kind of unfair, I think, to compare yourself to exactly that time last year and what you were doing, just like I wouldn't want to compare myself to the me of four years ago because probably quite different. Due to the experiences we've had in between. So I think that's a really sensible strategy and I think it will enable her to just focus on that given match. And we know that that is when she is her most destructive when she doesn't have all that other sort of all those other thoughts clouding her headspace. But Chris, what did you make of, I mean, you spoke about it is a bit of both. It's beyond it being very dominant, but also the strength of the women's film, but I mean, as a ticket holder, attending Sean Tex matches, like, you would not really want to see the world number, would you? But just in terms of like having kind of value for money, you'd probably be wanting to go and see Maria thackeray play Caroline Garcia, because I went down to the wire, for example. Providing a lot more kind of entertainment, if you like. But yeah, I mean, what did you make of the fact that Sri Lanka has just claimed this new kind of statistic? I think the first player this century to win so few games on en route to the title. I mean, do you think we're going to see that statistic beaten at any time soon? Will she beat her own record? Will it be four games next tournament? Well, I think it's something where people do love to see eager playing well. And so I think having had a period where she hasn't had that dominance, I want to enjoy the winning streak. No one was bored with that at all. I think that was kind of headline news. So seeing her get back onto the tour and playing well and picking up the title is something that people would definitely welcome. I think the nature of it is added some excitement because people do enjoy when eager is handing out baked goods, but then at the same time, as you say, we've just been talking about the strength of the top ten and strength of the women's game and then eager rocks up in Doha and kind of makes a mockery of some of the comments that we've made because it's clear that no one is in her league when she's playing well on an outdoor on an outdoor court. I think on an indoor court it's probably a little bit different. If I was a ticket holder, it's great to see a player playing well, I prefer to see two players playing well.

Qatar offers World Cup visitors an introduction to Islam

In the valley Muslim gutter, fans listened to the cause of prayer 5 times a day, and witnessed crowds prostrating at prayer rooms in stadiums, airports, and hotels, but efforts to introduce the religion had been going far beyond this.

Catholic immigrant workers in Qatar find a Christmas oasis
"Catholic immigrant workers in Qatar find a Christmas oasis. As the World Cup enters its final weekend in Qatar, thousands of Catholic expatriate workers in the Muslim majority country, prepare to celebrate Christmas. Their festivities are confined to an isolated religious complex called church city, ten miles south of Doha. Christmas is one of the most important festivities for Christians all over the world, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, but in Qatar, a Muslim majority country, it celebrated in private to respect local rules. We have celebration is different in gulf countries. Father Albert, a Catholic priest from India, says his congregation has had to adjust to their circumstances. Religion and the people belong to other religion also. So here we don't go. But inside the campus, we have such a celebration. The Carroll singing, even the other day, we had a lighting of the Christmas tree. There was a karo singing. The church says about 250,000 foreign Catholics live and work in Qatar. For those like sajni Fernando, the Christmas celebrations remind them of home. The same thing like Christmas cake and then going to church and preparing the children, buying new clothes. It's a same thing. Same thing what we do back home. We do it here. Church city is a big compound on government owned land that houses several Christian denominations. It looks nondescript from the outside, with no crosses on its exterior. To reach the church, parishioners need to cross a police checkpoint with metal detectors. Father Albert says they never had difficulty with the local authorities, who offered them protection inside the compound. When we have the Christmas celebrations of entire complexity of people, so of course it is we needed some kind of protections where another place is we don't get such a protection, but here we get the protection.

"doha" Discussed on AvTalk - Aviation Podcast
"Parking space to other airlines and they're now operating flights between Dubai and Doha as well. So Jason, I'll let you take it from there, and I'll become the numbers guy. All right. Well, ordinarily, at Dubai's other airport Dubai world central, I think there's usually zero passenger flights per day. Maybe there's one or two on some random days, but typically the average hovers around zero passenger flights, not exactly the global hub, they envisioned yet at this point. But because of the lack of hotel space and I guess other things to do in Qatar, Qatar airways and fly Dubai are running basically shuttle buses at this point between DW C and both of Doha's airport. So Qatar is flying to Doha's current airport and fly Dubai is flying to the old Doha airport now named DIA. So the old space that I think is now primarily used by private aviation and also the military actually there, which is interesting. But I knew there were going to be some flights between the two and there are far more than I anticipated in far more than is actually in the schedules since it looks like any flight that Qatar had planned to operate their operating multiple segments ten minutes apart because there's demand for these flights is really high. So the other day there was a Qatar flight at 5 40 a.m. and then 6 40 and then 6 50 and then 7 35 and then 7 40. So these are not all in the schedule, but these are added segments basically. And these are not small aircraft. These are triple 7 300 ERs and mostly a three 3300s which are large aircraft. I counted 30 on one particular day, but the numbers are actually quite a bit more than that, isn't it? Yeah, so the commercial airline flights. I guess belie the fact that they're because it's a World Cup there are also a large number of private aviation sites. So just sticking with commercial fights for a moment. From Dubai world center to both Doha airports. You've got fly Dubai operating on the 20 1st of November. They operated 27 flights over to Doha. So just one way. This is not, you know, back and forth. This is just one way. So 27 flights, the 21st, and then yesterday the 22nd, they operated 30 flights. So more than an hourly shuttle. And then you've got and this is just to buy world center. This is not both Dubai airports. Those numbers are even more astronomical. But then you have Qatar going 15 flights on the 21st and then 19 flights. The 22nd. And as you mentioned, these are large aircraft. The flight 7 three 7s. But the Qatar airways flights are large wide body aircraft operating roughly 40 minute flight. So lots and lots of aviation and transport moving through. A 107 total flights over the past week from over the past few weeks from Dubai world center to both still higher ports and 43 to from to DIA and then 43 to Doha Hamad. So that's lots and lots of huge increase in fights. So we'll see how that goes over the next couple of weeks throughout the World Cup. But something to keep an eye on if you're following a bit of the aviation in book two. Yeah, maybe at the end of the World Cup will give you a total number of flights between Doha. Yeah, we can do that at the end because there you go. It's going to be a number that makes me upset, I think. I mean, at this point we're running hourly shuttles. So it's more so they used to actually run over the shuttle between Doha and Dubai. Much like today, they would throw any available aircraft that could do a two hour turn. But this is even more than that. It's wild. Not a good thing, by the way. I don't like this happening. I'm just particularly interested by it. If only there was some sort of mode of transportation that could carry a lot of people, a slightly longer distance, perhaps a two pieces of steel that you could put on, maybe call it a track or something. Talking crazy. All right, we'll figure it out for next week. Can't be done. I hope everyone enjoyed the trivia game. We're going to keep refining it and hopefully get as many people as we can to play it because it'll be fun. Hopefully we can do some special episodes of the trivia game elsewhere starting to plot that a little in my head. And find out where we can go and what we can do. And then we'll be back next week after the Thanksgiving break. For another episode and hopefully another game. So thank you all so very much for listening to episode 191. If you're in the U.S. or celebrating, just because Happy Thanksgiving, we hope you have a wonderful week and we'll see you next time. I am Ian pechenik here as always with. Thanks for listening.

More than a little bit of a wasted occasion is how special envoy Robert Maui is describing the recent indirect negotiations in Doha. Speaking with national public radio malley says Iran rejected, quote, very detailed outlines of an arrangement the U.S. was willing to accept to revive the 2015 accord. President Biden's been trying for more than a year to restore the Iran nuclear deal since then president Trump pulled the U.S. out in 2018. Biden has maintained sanctions since then while Iran has ramped up nuclear activity. Now, special envoy says the party that hasn't said yes to a deal. Is Iran. In Washington, I'm Nathan Hager Bloomberg radio. While there may be no deal with Iran, there was some progress today on expanding NATO to include Finland and Sweden, NATO's secretary general Jens Stoltenberg says he's thankful NATO members are allowing the Ascension process to start. I command all allies from moving so quickly in accepting Finland and Sweden's applications for membership. And I want to thank turkey, Finland and Sweden for their constructive approach.

From WAB E. News in Atlanta, good afternoon. I'm Jim burr as our time. He's 5 32. Georgia power wants to phase out coal fired power plants, but state regulators could put the brakes on that plan, a move that would make climate change worse. Emily Jones reports. Georgia power's latest plan to generate and supply electricity calls for shutting down most coal units in the next 5 years, including two at north Georgia's plant Bowen, the most polluting coal plant in the state. The utility says it ran the numbers, and it no longer makes economic sense to keep the aging coal plants open. State regulators aren't convinced though. Staff for the public service commission did their own analysis and said closure of the plant Bowen coal units is a close call. The final decision is up to the elected commissioners, and recent headlines about high natural gas prices have some of them worried about abandoning coal. Here's commissioner bob McDonald at a recent hearing. When you compare that cost of running and combined cycle of whatever today with a cold unit, does this not give you concern. Georgia power says natural gas prices should even out over time. But the commission could decide to keep the coal units open for 8 years longer. Brian Jacob of the southern alliance for clean energy says every one of those years would make climate change worse. Every year earlier that you could retire those prevents that much more CO2 emitted that year. In 2020, plant Bowen emitted nearly 8 million metric tons of greenhouse gases. Georgia power's parent, southern company, says it plans to reach net zero emissions by 2050, a new report by Jacobs group finds that southern company is on track to reach that goal by 2071. That's 15 years earlier than last year's outlook, but still far short of the company's own

The drone tracks the white cars drove through this residential neighborhood just west to the airport and the strike happened around two miles from the perimeter. Us central command says the vehicle was packed with explosives and posed imminent threat. When it was hit those bombs went off and cause significant secondary explosions. You can see this happened right next to houses and there are reports that an afghan child was killed in the blast. The us military says it's looking into that but has no indications at this time of civilian casualties. No us personnel were injured. And this doesn't appear to have had any impact on the evacuation effort. President biden did warn last night that an attack was highly likely but just because this flawed appears have been thwarted doesn't mean the danger to. Us troops is over.

The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
Afghan Allies Are Worried About Being Left Behind As Americans Evacuate
"Less than a week away from the deadline to get every last american out of afghanistan along with every deserving afghan on an outbound aircraft as they were told to expect months ago the taliban all the cards now the administration and many americans have so many questions they want asked. And as you'll see in here tonight our chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel asked the taliban directly in tonight's report from kabul. The taliban is stressing. It's time for the us senate allies to pack up and get out transport planes and civilian aircraft from around. The world are evacuating vulnerable afghans. But there's a huge bottleneck at transit hubs at the us base in doha cutter thousands or crowded in holding areas temperatures. Well over one hundred degrees ever in kabul. The taliban are helping speed up the evacuations today keeping crowds away from the airport handling food and water but many afghans field. They're being abandoned especially women and girls who are oppressed when the taliban ruled twenty years ago now the taliban promised to be different but have they changed or are they just playing nice until the americans leave tonight. I met zabihullah. Mujahid taliban spokesman. The united states is evacuating and it is taking out americans who worked with us forces but not everyone is going to be able to make it out. Will you let those people leave in the future. Can you guarantee their safety no autism. We don't want our countrymen to go to america whatever they have done in the past. We have given amnesty. We need young educated professionals for our nation. But what if they want to leave. It's their choice. What would you say to women. Afghan women who are terrified. They our sisters. We must show them. Respect should not be frightened on. The taliban are humans and from this country they have fought for their country. Women's should be proud of us not scared.
The Mad Mamluks
"doha" Discussed on The Mad Mamluks
"Do think that that's actually was the government. Actually prefers is taliban to be because he agreed to everything that they agreed to everything. America wanted america. Got them to agree to everything and they're planning to implement all of that. No total what. Everything is so number. One is i mean just to summarize a lot of the Secular like almost like a secularization level of the taliban is that they said that. We're going to keep things as religious possible. We're not gonna call ourselves a caliphate we're going to refer to it as just the emerets we're not going to And just on the side. I just recognized that nobody was referring to them as terrorists anymore. Everyone was recognized him. As taliban rate. I didn't hear any of the news. Agencies referred to them as terrorists anymore taliban. This tally one that rebel. Just something to think about. So the next is that they're not going to interfere with anything with china. There's no interference with russia at all even though that was originally no interferes with india. I don't think that's part of the doha court. The doha accords wasn't matinee allude to didn't deal with the chinese directly in doha courts day. Were talking mainly the americans to my. But i'm saying that. A part of america's conditions were to them that they are not gonna interfere with china. They're not going to interfere with russia. They're not gonna interfere with india right. Interfere i don't think they were going to interfere meaning It really depends on what you mean by interfere. So interfering in china means Against americans want the top on or upon to be torn inside for china. Okay so if the chinese don't want the taliban to accept the recognize easter custodian as a independent republic etc etc. They they want those and from what at least from the communication we're seeing from the taleban representatives regarding china and the friendliness. That china is approaching. It seems like they've met at made a deal with them then. Hey we're not going to at this hour because they're if people see the map of it's like a tiny little sliver that's really touching eastern stan just by I dunno brother loyd history afghans. Make a lotta deals with different people. Other border with china. How border with china. It's not that big has basically in the north six hundred miles. Probably not a hundred miles. Maybe a little bit less than that But it's a good sized border. Yeah he's turkistan right. yeah so i think. The chinese are very Cautious about that and they're very they don't want afghanistan to be a A ground where there were the easter zahn movement gains power and strengthen causes more problems for them. You know so for the americans they wouldn't. They wouldn't be working on in doha. They wouldn't be working on behalf of the chinese you know they didn't have the the are gonna make their own deals with the chinese or the russians are going. I'm pretty much tell them that. Hey we're not gonna mess with the the caucus regions and we're not going to be a place where all these different groups will come. In and launch attacks against mainland russia lor try to form independent nations. Like in dagestan and chechnya. What have you so do these type of assurances need to be given by the taliban. I'm not blaming them for it. I'm not of course. Would i love the daban to say yes. We'll accept easter kosonen. Give the give the chinese finger. Give the russians of finger..
