"Though they did have every right to be selling ships in that portion of the black sea as they said they knew. Russia would respond. didn't they. They knew this was going to happen. But it goes actually for what you just said about. Reticent agreement and international convention international there is international law. Anyone should adhere by death including russia. And of course archambault putin's not very good in adhering international law on so on so many levels so this is only one them now. We can kind of dismiss thing things kind of anecdotes so some scheme should between navy's happened in history and they don't always lead to but sometimes they do and we saw it in in in history so we have to be very careful especially i think as we move towards putin twilight days and we don't know what allegedly is going to stay there until twenty thirty six but at some point or another we'll see more position forces a marriage in in in this what happened. In in dictatorship in russia is not in democracy then he's become also more dangerous internationally and this friction. We look for to export problems at all internationally and then i think we'll be in a mall dangerous point. I think we are not there yet. But it might emerge and evolve into something like this tests are are confrontations like this. Do you think actually potentially dangerous. I mean in the one assumes slash hopes that all the personnel involved on both sides would have been under extremely strict instructions. Along the lines of you know seriously for the love of god. Don't actually opened fire on anybody or anything but that being the case if we assume and or hope that's the case. Is there really that great. A chance of miscalculation well as you also already said it's a lot about sort of How you deal with international treaties and crimea was already next against international law by russia. So everything from there on is now sort of derailing process. Further in the territory of unlawfulness I think that case of the dutch Ship it was not the worst thing that can happen and did that government of course it have any interest in escalating this Conflict in probably sold it. Russia no no interest there but little point. I thought it was interesting that that defense minister bielfeld shout and call the russian act irresponsible. She's actually a woman and for the russian government and military to take a responsible for a woman might be an interesting case. You'll see your final quick thought on this. What sense does this make from. Russia's point of view to make a song and dance about the british or the dutch navy maneuvering in the vicinity. Because surely if you just just trying to think about this from russia's point of view if they just ignored it just said fine say will you like say if we care. Then they don't get a week of headlines about their occupation of crimea and how nobody recognizes it and everybody thinks it's awful might to deflect but let me just make a point about miscalculation because anyone with any experience in military veterans and sometimes we are talking about young eagles soldiers to do all sorts of things and they just my miscalculated or might be more eager than the people back in moscow are to to do something so i think we have to be careful about that as the deflection. Yes putin tied to deflect in in different places but by doing that. We shouldn't forget what happened. In what you mentioned about about the premier but also what's going in east ukraine. This is an ongoing and intervention in election and assassination of people in different places in the world of position nevada and so on and so forth. So yeah this can be deflection. But they didn't from a geopolitical point of view. I don't think and we see kind of data to washington is taking the moment. I don't think it's it's enough to deflect form the main issues of potential conflicts we've with nato and this probably one of the reason when biden visited two weeks ago. I said the g. seven then go to nato just to consolidate this font vis-a-vis russia you'll see boekelberg anticipate crovitz. Thank you both for the moment. We will have more from you shortly. You are listening to the daily on monocle. Twenty four the more than one hundred thirty years allience has expanded its business and stretched. It's brand new and innovative ways while the world looks very different today than it did back in eighteen. Ninety one truth remains orleans is passion for securing people's lives and giving them courage for what's ahead no matter what another core principle at orleans has a belief in equality of opportunity and that diversity makes a company more innovative more resilient and better equipped for the future alicea iffy hack and works in allience asset management. Where she's a business division head before that she had a diverse career working for the likes of the world bank walking across sectors and around the world. She has also on the board of the albright foundation a nonprofit that works to promote women and diversity in executive business positions anna sophie hair can what about the scale of the challenges. That still lie ahead. And are you optimistic about all of our prospects have delivering solutions. So i think the challenges again are what i would call the unconscious bias because we all want to do the best when it comes to diversity and inclusion but there is bias and all of us so i think really being aware of that and trying to get training and sort of reflect on yourself on your own bias. I think that's something that we will still need to become better. That's like an ongoing process. And i think one aspect that will follow also because we are looking at so many aspects of diversity and one thing that is also evolving more and more the trying to certainly address that also is becoming more digital so that means we have hiring people who think sometimes very differently. So how do we of make sure that everybody not only by gender and race but really by the way how you think and how you teke problems that you feel included that you can participate and that you heard these sort of the more difficult. Because they're not so tangible and visible and so. I think this is sort of the challenge that we are working on and in terms of optimism. I'm super optimistic. Because i think you're in a good place at orleans and also acknowledging that we need to hire more diverse people and as i said people with the detroit mc rhonda also younger people have a totally different way of thinking of perking. Sometimes i think it will just force us to become more diverse. So i'm extremely optimistic that this will go very well.

"One day they gave up our own rusty, the hyper German shepherd mix, so maybe I believe it's so cute. I believe this can happen. Sabrina. I think that somebody was listening can step up and go help out Rusty. The shelter Dog thinks so, too, And it's just amazing to me that Rusty has made national news twice. And still hasn't found his forever home. No, and everybody's like, Oh, look, how adorable you see him. Hold on. I gotta bring up another story, cause I'm getting his stop using your ad blocker. No, there's a pay wall this time. Rusty. The German shepherd is indeed more foamed at the moment. You have too many. You've got into too many of the stories and you know what? Bring it up every day and I don't read a single one of them. I'm not using it the way it should for you. I'm not paying for the New York Daily News. They don't give me enough. Uh oh. Here he is right. Your Texas dog adopted after 418 days and shelter returned after one day because he was too much work and he is a cute little dog. I mean, look at him. This is not a full on German Shepherd. I can tell you from this photograph here that Rusty is definitely a mix of dogs, one half German shepherd the other half impossible to deal with. He's a little tough, but I know that there's somebody out there that has the space for this dog. I know that somebody can help him out what their patients you need patients and to give rusty the life that you deserve. What is it? You're missing here is space makes less patience necessary. So if you have an apartment, and you have rusty, the dog who's you know, he's got a. He's got a rap sheet. He's got a criminal history essentially. If you have a department is not gonna work. He's gonna drive you crazy if you got a big old property and you might have a bunch of dogs out there, Rusty could probably go do his thing all day and then come back and eat some dog food. Get some water curl up on on a bale of hay or something. And just live out his life. And that would be the greatest. The adoption lasted less than 24 hours. Not crazy. These people. What? How could you turn this guy down? Look at his cute little face there. If I had the property, and I was in Texas, I would do it. But somebody else gonna have to take the blood here. Go help out Rusty the dog and let's turn this story from a greatest story in the world. To a worse story in the world back to a greatest story in the world because I think we could do that together. Friends. You better keep up with Rusty then, man, you better put a Google news alert. I'm gonna have to. I'll put it out there. I'll put a Google news alert Anybody else If you see something, please do. Send him my way. Let's go to some of your dispatches from the news junkie app here is droopy dog with a dispatch. He goes. I wanted to get on. The barnacle game. That has been your own for opinion where nobody's happy. Two weeks we talked about a story. What was the original story, buddy? Remember, Um, that was it. You know, we were talking about burn articles on the evergreen Yes, because they had to clean the bottom of the the ever given ship that was stuck sideways in the Suez Canal and we said, Imagine this thing. Football fields and football fields long and so wide. It's incredible having to clean this thing up. Take a look at it. And then we were talking about getting cut by barnacles and that turned into like a ton of dispatches from people with stories where they massacred themselves. Just thinking about it. E think droopy dog going to do it, too. And tell you guys that keel Holland. Back in the day, the Dutch navy introduced keel hauling as a punishment to their sailors. They would take them from one side of the boat. They would tie them up and then dragged them along the bottom of the boat across the barnacles, which would shred them into ribbons. And then they would take them back up on the boat. On. If they were still live, they would heal. Hold him again. Oh, my God. So, basically, this was the most gruesome punishment that I couldn't think of. Yeah, I could have gone without hearing that. But there's other dispatches on the way. Great ones. I'm sure search for the news junkie in the APP store. Now a.

"Today. He's a two time pulitzer prize winner reporter at the washington post and the author of the new book. Red line the unraveling of syria and america's race to destroy the most dangerous arsenal in the world. Job great to talk to you again us to be here then It has been a while. So i've been reading the book it's fantastic. I like feel like. I was versed in a lot of these discussions debates at the white house. And you know obviously follow this stuff closely. I didn't know any of these stories. About how the individuals or how these chemical weapons actually disposed of. It's like the most complicated problem i could ever imagine but let me start at something. Brought which is that. I am sure that almost every listener of this show like knows about obama's syria red line and they have heard the in many cases valid criticisms of his decision not to respond militarily to assads usa of chemical weapons on his own people. I bet very few people listening. Know that in the wake of that debate about a us military strike the us the russians. The syrians cut a deal to remove thirteen hundred tons of chemical weapons from syria in the middle of a raging civil war. Why did you decide to tell the story. And why do you think that it kinda got buried. This is great and it actually has been a subject of frustration for me since you know way back when you are in the white house because in twenty eleven two thousand twelve hours covering arab spring and they're two red lines. There's the political one. There's the president's offhand comment which was not scripted moment but it's something he happened to say at a press conference that got guitar hung around his neck. But there's the other red line is the fact that of all the countries involved in arab spring syria is this place that has a real weapon of mass destruction. Not of sort of false intelligence a serious wmd threat in the form of thirteen hundred tons of really bad stuff. Saron vx all the the really bad nerve agents and it's in the middle of a country that's being torn apart by civil war and you can see twenty eleven two thousand twelve the countries in the region starting to freak out about the possibility that some of those weapons would get stolen and into the hands of some really bad guys like isis which moves in next door so that kind of becomes the origin of this other prices of less. Not just try to sell the syrian conflict which turns out to be an impossible thing. But let's figure out a way to get rid of this stuff before it hurts us all. Yeah i mean when you talk about like things that are debated in the in the white house situation room when you ask president who has to deal with every problem in the world to sort of rank and tear priorities. Weapons of mass destruction are the absolute top of the list. And i think even the term w. n. b. is is colored by the george w bush experience. But can you help folks just understand what weapons were in. Assads Chemical weapons arsenal in y. There's viewed so differently. Yeah we know a lot about this problem because it turns out the very start of the book is a story about a spy that we the i had inside series chemical weapons program chemical weapons are bad anyway. Because they're they're they're easy of compared to all the other. Wmd's you don't need armies of visist to build a chemical weapon at the science is well understood and once you have them what you have a few gallons of saron it's portable. You can take it outside the country you could use it somewhere else. So it becomes a much more practical tool for a terrorist organization. And so you know we we. The u Bama was very mindful of the of the intelligence deductible to preceded the iraq war but also was very concerned about weapons of mass destruction. He made this one of the central themes one of the things he wanted to address to make a nuclear free world to eliminate this threat so he was very Very mindful of the fact that this threat existed in syria and of all the objectives. The americans had in in addressing the syrian conflict. This was a key one nine solving the conflict of getting rid of a threat and that animated him that motivated him to try to find a way to not. Just you know force the red line but to get syria to give up the stockpile though so dangerous yet so you quote a senior member of the dutch navy in the book describing just a portion of assads arsenal in terms that i i i hope to never here again which was Inside those containers is the death dose equivalent for twenty one million people. I think that was describing one tenth of the arsenal that was eventually recovered It was just a small amount as being loaded onto a danish chef to to take it out to sea began this destruction process which the book describes in some detail. But yeah you can't fill of these these substances there. Some of the most deadly chemicals were ever made Saron itself actually came out of a a nazi experiment program back in the nineteen thirties. They're actually looking for new kinds of insecticide. They stumbled upon this thing that. Oh yeah it's really good at killing people to think of sarah as being compared to cyanide. Something we kind of know a little bit about it's twenty six times more deadly than cyanide. So just a whiff for this stuff is is lethal of its cousin. Vx which is another thing this. This the syrians had you. Don't even need to breathe it just a little bit on. Your skin is enough to kill you and so these things are so terrifying so horrific to contemplate that you can understand why neighbors like like israel are starting to hand out gas masks starting to give their citizens chemical protection suits because they're worried that these chemicals are going to start coming their way so there's a lot of echoes in iraq In the book you know you talk about how when obama was first deliberating whether or not to strike.

"Love that one been to one of the Alzheimer's it's been months like four of our intro themes but one of my favorites is an Alzheimer. Been Way. Too Long. It has it a pirate on this pirate podcasts, but I finally found one that we haven't covered calls. It turns up pirates very few and far between in terms of like historical research involved which makes sense. Yeah. It does these guys lead very secretive in in shady lives and this was back in the day when people weren't like doing a. Great job of keeping track of Shit, like it. Kind of you know it's a meet in the middle. You know of people didn't really care as well as these guys are doing highly illegal things that they didn't really want anybody to know about allies. Yeah. Unless we'll do that unless it came across as them like unless like that's why you only get you know this guy. People because that's pretty easy to track. or it'll be like one where he was born and where he died heeded pirating in between and that's it and you're like, well, this isn't a segment. It'll be like we know where he was from sixteen, hundred, sixteen, O five and then sixteen, seventy, six, seventy, two, and we think he was like somewhere in the. Vicinity of this area somewhere along between those times Joyce find differing accounts to like even with our guy today. Cornelius Jol is his name that we're GonNa talk about, and there's some differing information about him that I found online but we are a pirate podcast. We must continue spreading knowledge of pirates past present and future this today's obviously from the past cornelius jol known by the affectionate nickname. Who'd been? Who to been? Which translates to peg leg or wooden leg its Dutch. He was a Dutch pirate. Cornelius. Joel. Live during the seventeenth century. One account says his leg was blown off by a cannonball when he was a young boy. which makes me wonder like what the fuck was. He doing as a young boy to be around cannonballs like how kids these days like you'll hear about like a kid losing a finger or you know whatever? Because he was playing with fireworks was back in the pirating days of the seventeenth century they plan with cannons they just had cans lying around everywhere. I don't I don't understand how this is like. You know how like their stories of people in the civil war would watch battles happen and just take a cannonball. spectating, and then all the sudden he looked down the legs gone could even imagine what that would be like. You feel something hit your leg. You look down at just gone you remember the Patriot, the Mel Gibson movie, the Patriot courses there's a cannonball scene in that movie and I think it's a head. Straight off by cannon happens once and fury to where it's on. Could you I mean cannons in and of themself are just terrifying things violet light hurling just massive heavy balls at you. They were just built for ultimate destruct and then when they run out of the balls, they stuff in forks and knives and find in there and shit that could've that's probably even worse Jack Sparrow style pirates of the Caribbean forks and knives that movie nails. Yeah. Let's other places. It's reported that Cornelius Joe lost his leg during battle and again, this is an example. Nobody ever knows how these damn pirates lost their legs or lives all that matters is he's peg leg. which is huge. Yeah. This guy one of the first captains to ever have the wooden peg, which obviously became a staple in Russian icon indeed groundbreaking buccaneers. A of pirates scheuer basically like wear. Yeah. Instead of the Yeezy, he intended the peg-leg. Yeah I mean, could you imagine how different life would be if this guy had not chosen a wood peg leg what if he chose like human bone and then human bone came became the standard baseline for all peg legs moving forward and What are the shittiest options he could have gone with for the peg leg? I guess, they're all pretty shitty a bucket. What if he chose a bucket? He basically went with like a tree branch right? 'cause. That's what like ended up being the peg leg is a piece of wood just a stump. Just would. Maybe that's where the nicknamed dumpy comes from I'm no idea. But this guy primarily focused on attacking Spanish targets in the West indies began his sailing career in the Dutch navy, which is often the case with these dudes. They'll be like an actual member of the navy. Yeah. For the Spain or Deutschland or one of these places, and then they they break bad as Walter White did and they become buccaneers pirates on the open sea privateers joined the west India Company in Sixteen Thirty, eight Spanish actually nicknamed him El Pirata. Which means the pirate. Really Clever name from the Spanish. It makes me think that's another example of inaccurate pirate reporting like one Spanish guy referred to him as the pirate because he was a pirate and they were like man that's wild his nickname was up pyro I mean, basically some of the accounts so was fighting all over the place. I'm seeing Brazil off the coast of Portugal. Spain five world. Of dunkirk to. Yeah. So it says he's saw captured near Dunkirk by Dunkirk privateers release some six months later. Christopher. Nolan film I believe Dunkirk excellent film, fucking intense superintendents, really intense BS. This guy's tight Spanish supposedly sing a song about him which opened with the line.

"And. Then he was discovered to be Jewish and to be practicing his faith in sixteen o five, he and one hundred and fifty other people were publicly tortured. And this changed Cohen's life. He decided that he was going to work against Spain and Portugal and fight against the injustices. Of the inquisition I the had to escape. Yeah. That'll certainly do and he did that thing he got out of Amsterdam and he pretty quickly seem to find his way into the good graces of the Dutch and he became essentially a spy for them for the Dutch navy and he settled in Jamaica, which was already starting to become this kind of safe haven for these Jewish ex pats. and he worked with the Dutch on behalf of the Netherlands to attack these Spanish vessels and just kind of be a thorn in the side of these colonial ambitions to take over the new world. This everyone was vying for a lot of that real estate, right? Yeah. That's right. This is part of a massive land and resource grab on the part of the European powers. Cohen even teams up with one of the most feared pirates of the day a man named Sir. Ian and Sir Henry Morgan is a dangerous dangerous dude, right but. This land grab this age of expansion panic that so many European powers are going through a makes them bend the rules a little bit more, and so the Dutch and British governments actually. They're not very loud about it, but they back up Cohen and Henry Morgan would that be Captain Henry Morgan of the of the rum fame, the Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica. Yeah. Remember Captain Morgan's Ab surely it's named after. Yeah I mean, what would what would imagine a captain? Morgan was a Sir Henry. Morgan is a Welsh privateer and it was a plantation owner who eventually became Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica. So he was in the halls of power. But the to be clear. The what I'm talking about I, say the quiet support is the Dutch and British governments quietly supporting Cohen in his partnership Sir Henry Morgan was already kind of like. Above, reproach in a lot of ways because he was so powerful and just for the record confirmed captain, Morgan Rum is named after Sir Henry Morgan for his adventures in the in the Caribbean. True. Yeah. I mean it makes sense to me right And drink responsibly, and you too can live like the captain you. Wonder why they never had a tagline like promote yourself or even used that I'm the captain now mem-. Be. Great. That would be good. You know what I was thinking in my mind I was confusing the the captain Morgan's tagline with the Captain Crunch tagline which I think is superior is you in the cabin make it happen? There were go. And drink responsibly. And eat your sugary cereals responsibly kids right. Eat Your breakfast candy responsibly. That's still baffles me. So here, let's fast forward to the house. We promise you a heist. There is a heist evolve in sixteen twenty eight. Cohen helps the Dutch west India Company Pool One of the most profitable see heist in the entire history of piracy they steal like over a billion dollars, worth of gold and silver for Spanish fleet off the coast of Cuba and when we say a billion that's awes- roughly adjusting for how much this and silver would be worth in today's age but it's still it's still kind of tough to To get a super accurate calculation they're just it was a lot of money but wait a minute I thought the Dutch west. India was a legitimate business. What are they doing pulling off heists? Dutch west India Company. Well, the Okay Specifically Cohen Health Admiral Pete Hein is over. We're going to be all unfunded factual about it. The Dutch west India company was not was probably not officially sanctioning this heist, but without doing a whole episode about them yet I wouldn't put it past them in they are. Very bad group, but in another thing in our views look up. In Britannica Dutch west India company it says using booty acquired from the capture by the Dutch seamen Piet Hein of part of Spanish treasure fleet. The company challenged the Portuguese. Brazil beginning in sixteen thirty and attained his greatest success during the administration of Count John Maurice. So they definitely ran on it and they're definitely sanction it. Yeah we should do at some point a story about some of the many crimes of those organizations because even if you know a lot about him, you might not know the whole terrible story. So. Not long after successfully pulling off this massive see Heist Cohen starts his own pirate island. Off The coast of Brazil to mentioned earlier, and then once Portugal takes over the area Cohen becomes this adviser to Captain Henry Mortgage. Drink responsibly indeed, and then you know Cohen does finally going to retire I. Guess He's getting up there in years. Sir Henry Morgan becomes Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica and actually pardon Cohen's Ochoa living in the clear and he stayed in Jamaica until he passed away living the life of a civilian but having had some Hella Adventures the pirates life was certainly for him but he knew when to say when just like you should when you're drinking captain Morgan's rum that's right and that's a lovely pirate stereotype a bust, not all pirates died on the high seas in you know a a wave of treasure and blood falling to cannon fire. Some people were actually able to retire which I thought was pretty cool. And now I think we have time for one more someone who's been called occasionally the most famous Jewish pirates. Jean Lafitte was born in France in about seventeen eighty. I had no idea John the feet was was Jewish pirate certainly heard of him from the feats blacksmith shop in in New Orleans, which I believe is the oldest bar still an operation there possibly in the United States it's been around for a very, very long time And it's a pretty fun little dive bar to check out they have really get hurricanes. But yeah, John the feet was born in France in about seventeen eighty, like you said and there is a pretty controversial work called the Journal of the feet controversial and it may or may not have been written by him or could be some kind of forgery it. Could be could have been by third party He does claim that his mother's father was a Spanish Jew who was subjected to torture under the inquisition and much like some of the previous entries in this list seeing that happen to his family created a lifelong hatred for Spain and four, obviously the the Spanish inquisition and decided that he wanted to. Wreck their shop and like just absolutely be another thorn in the side of the Spanish Armada Right So he wanted to mess with their money because they have these holdings in the new world and that's where the inquisition was absolutely like burning their way across the land. So John, moves to.

Been Way too long it has it a pirate on this pirate podcasts, but I finally found one that we haven't covered calls. It turns up pirates very few and far between in terms of like historical research involved which makes sense. Yeah. It does guys lead very secretive in shady lives and this was back in the day when people weren't like doing a great job of keeping track of. Shit like it kind of you know it's a meet in the middle. You know of people didn't really care as well as these guys are doing highly illegal things that they didn't really want anybody to know about allies. Yeah. Unless we'll do that unless it came across as them like unless like that's why you only get. You know this guy killed one hundred people because that's pretty easy to track. or it'll be like we know where he was born and where he died heeded pirating in between and that's it and you're like, well, this isn't a segment. It'll be like we know where he was from sixteen hundred to sixteen o five and in Sixteen, Seventy, six, seventy two and we think he was like somewhere in the. Vicinity of this area somewhere along between those times. Joyce find differing accounts to like even with our? Guy. Today. Cornelius Joel is his name that we're GonNa talk about and there's some differing information about him that I found online but we are a pirate podcast. We must continue spreading knowledge of pirates past present and future. This today's obviously from the past cornelius jol known by the affectionate nickname. Who'd been. WHO TO BEEN Which translates to peg leg or wooden leg it's Dutch. He was a Dutch pirate Cornelius. Joel. Live during the seventeenth century. One account says his leg was blown off by a cannonball when he was a young boy. which makes me wonder like what the fuck was. He doing as a young boy to be around cannonballs like how kids these days like you'll hear about like a kid losing a finger or you know whatever? Because he was playing with fireworks was back in the pirating days of the seventeenth century they plan with cannons they just had cans lying around everywhere. I. Don't I don't understand how this is like. You know how like their stories of people in the civil war would watch battles happen and just take a cannonball. spectating, and then all the sudden he looked down half his legs gone could even imagine what that would be like. You feel something hit your leg. You look down at just gone. Do you remember the Patriot the Mel Gibson movie the Patriot courses there's a cannonball scene in that movie and I think it's a head. Straight off by cannon happens once and fury to where it's on. Could you I mean cannons in and of themself are just terrifying things violet light hurling just massive heavy balls at you. They were just built for alternate destruct and then when they run out of the balls, they stuff in forks and knives and find in there and shit that could've that's probably even worse Jack, Sparrow style pirates of the Caribbean forks and knives that movie nails. Yeah. Let's other places. It's reported that Cornelius Joe lost his leg during battle and again, this is an example. Nobody ever knows how these damn pirates lost their legs or lives all that matters is he's peg leg. which is huge. Yeah. This guy one of the first captains to ever have the wooden peg, which obviously became a staple in Russian icon indeed groundbreaking buccaneers. A of pirates scheuer basically like wear. Yeah. Instead of the yeezy he intended the peg-leg. Yeah I mean, could you imagine how different life would be if this guy had not chosen a wood peg leg what if he chose like human bone and then human bone came became the standard baseline for all peg legs moving forward Yup. What are the shittiest options he could have gone with for the peg leg? I guess they're all pretty shitty a bucket. What if he chose a bucket? He basically went with like a tree branch right? 'cause. That's what like ended up being the peg leg is a piece of wood just a stump. Just would. Maybe. That's where the nicknamed dumpy comes from I'm no idea. But this guy primarily focused on attacking Spanish targets in the West indies began his sailing career in the Dutch navy, which is often the case with these dudes. They'll be like an actual member of the navy. Yeah. For the Spain or Deutschland or one of these places, and then they they break bad as Walter White did and they become buccaneers pirates on the open sea privateers joined the west India Company in Sixteen thirty eight Spanish actually nicknamed him El. PIRATA. Which means the pirate. Really Clever name from the Spanish. It makes me think that's another issue of inaccurate pirate reporting like one. Spanish guy referred to him as the pirate because he was a pirate and they were like man that's wild his nickname was up pyro I mean basically some of the accounts so was fighting all over the place I'm seeing Brazil off the coast of Portugal. Spain five world. Of dunkirk to. Yeah. So it says he's saw captured near Dunkirk by Dunkirk privateers, release some six months later, Christopher Nolan. Film I believe Dunkirk excellent film, fucking intense superintendents really intense be as this guy's tight. Spanish. Supposedly sing a song about him which opened with the line. Peg leg is a bad pirate who eats raw octopus, drinks seawater..

"Did you like parts when you a little shirt? Yeah. It had a sort of romance pirates. When I was a kid, but what was interesting to me is that the didn't exist anymore for a very good reason. There was a sort of order placed on the world's ocean starting in the early eighteen hundreds by the rise of nation states. And also by the rise of the United States, which specifically formed a navy to go out and quell Barbary pirates because they were a burden on trade. And it occurred to me that if some Malia could develop in the same way, then that would be the practical long-term solution to piracy. So I got interested in pirates off Somalia first of all because I was writing about them from the newsroom, it should be online. But also because their sudden appearance again after a couple of hundred years in kind of a major way was a symptom of gathering chaos in the world. I really thought that it was a sign of entropy in my lifetime. And I wanted to figure it out. But I didn't just go. To the horn of Africa with that sort of idea my mind, there was a trial of ten Somali pirates in Hamburg and Gemini at that time, I was living in Berlin and working for Spiegel online. And I started to follow that trial for Spiegel in two thousand eleven as long trial to ten pirates, and what happened to them they captured a German cargo ship in about two thousand ten and got assaulted by the Dutch navy who didn't kill anyone arrested everybody in Brana back to hamburglar, the ship was originally based. And so they were put on trial in front of a German court, and it was the first pirate trial on German soil in four hundred years. So that that alone was was interesting, and they all sent down there were found guilty in spite of the fact that they were found guilty. They got only about seven years in jail because Germany's a modern state founded in nineteen forty nine when there wasn't much piracy to worry about. So the penalties are pretty slim, and they will have. Got out this year. The they got out earlier because it standard not to keep someone the fulltime they've behaved. Well, they got out pretty quickly. And because some OI is difficult place to ship people back to for human rights reasons as convicted buyer, it's they were allowed to stay in Germany, and I thought that was a complete travesty, you know, a few of the move back anyway because they had more opportunities since Moyer. What are you going to do in chimney kids? Parties and stuff good question. So when you talk about this being a symptom of a certain entropy afoot in the world. We also curious though, about them as sort of working people driven to extremes by inequality and exploitation, and yeah, so that sort of thing and you wanted to go and find out if that was realistic. Yeah. I mean, I knew that it was a directly. It was a symptom that entropy and Somalia itself Somalia's minimum failed state for a long time. And the the the last strongman was toppled in. Ninety one it was a bit like Moammar Gaddafi going down in Libya and ever since then it's been the clans who have been running some Aulia. So the region's sort of look out for their own stability. And in those regions, the clans might get involved in something legal. So it was simply a way to make money for some poor regions. And there's a story, of course, that they're protecting their fish stocks. And that story is only partially true, though, the roots of piracy are in illegal fishing. But once they started to capture cargo ships, those fishermen were no longer defending their coastline. And especially when they started capturing people like me on land said that it had nothing to do with defending the coastline. So that's a that's a tension in the book to the desert in the refers to wear the pirates come from, you know, and in my case, most of them were Clancy soldiers from inland, not from coastal clans that made their living from fishing, right? So only on the where introduced to Mahomet Gullick gala. He's from Galkayo. Yeah. But he's. Got a German last name because he married in Germany. So he had lived in Berlin for quite a while..
