What Does A Biden Presidency Mean To US Foreign Relations?
"Might Joe Biden's presidency mean for US foreign policy with us, now three of NPR's international correspondents in some of the regions that are most consequential to the United States? NPR's Emily Fang is in Beijing. Lucien Kim is in Moscow and Jane Arraf is in Erbil, Iraq. Hello to you all. Good morning. Morning. So, Emily, let's start with you. The relationship between the U. S and China right now is quite tense. How was news of of President Elect Biden's win received in Beijing. Well, there wasn't much news because two days after the election results were called noticeably Absent is any official reaction from China's leader, She Jingping, He's not put up a message. By contrast in 2016. She congratulated Trump hours after the race was called this year. Foreign Ministry has dodged every question we've had for comment on their views about the election, and the silence is not because China prefers bite in over Trump, Trump of replied, And it's more out of an over abundance of caution because Trump has not officially conceded. Seven China's view It does not want to take a side if you will, and until someone is definitively inaugurated, and Trump still has more than two months left in office so he could put significant pressure on China. Still, if he's provoked Okay, So China's taking a wait and see approach Lucy and there was all of this concern about Russian potential Russian interference in this election. We didn't see much of that. How is Moscow, reacting to the prospect of a Biden presidency? Well, it's interesting. It's very similar to the situation in Beijing here. The absence of any congratulations from President Vladimir Putin has been noticeable today. His spokesman told reporters that Putin will wait for official results because Trump has not conceded and wants to dispute the the count in the courts. One prominent Russian who did congratulate Biden, his opposition leader, Alexei Navalny. He's recovering from a poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. The day after the U. S election. Navalny went on social media to say that the suspense about who Would eventually when the race was evidence that America's elections are real, but officially on state TV. The main message is that this election was marred by irregularities and fraud. So in a sense, not that different from Russian elections and the messier the transition of power is in the US, the better it is for the Kremlin because the US stops looking like a model democracy. Well, that's interesting. Jane, China and Russia both taking a wait and see approach did Iraqi leadership say anything this weekend? They did. They generally welcomed Biden's election. And, you know, there's not expected to be really a dramatic or immediate change in policy. One of the big issues here is withdrawal of US troops and Biden like Trump is in favor of those, But I gotta be honest Officials here are breathing a sigh of relief. You know, one of them put it. Will no longer be one tweet away from learning of major foreign policy decisions. And then there's the fact that Biden you Noah's head of a CZ, a member of the leading member, ranking member of the Of Senate Foreign Relations Committee and then the point man on Iraq. For then President Obama knows the leaders here and he knows them well, and that will make a difference. I spoke to one senior Iraqi official who said he's dealt with them in years for years. Sorry, and and the thing that stands out is Biden's essential decency, he says. Decency. OK, Lucien Joe Biden known for his decency, Yes, but unlike President Trump, he does not seem primed to like Vladimir Putin or to soft pedal things with Russia. How might his election change the U. S Russia relationship? All right. There is no expectation here at all that Biden will be easier on Russia. I spoke to one of Russia's leading foreign policy experts fielder Lukianoff about what he expects from a Biden presidency. They don't think that many people at Moscow believed that the U. S will be able to be back to the old good days of liberal order as it was in 90 Sorento Seldon's, But the rhetoric will be ah, muchmore like Obama or even Clinton spirit. So in other words, the expectation in Moscow is that Biden will bring up human rights and democracy and also take a greater interest in what happens in the former Soviet Union. There is no love for Biden in Moscow. He met with Putin when he was vice president and has been very critical of the Kremlin. But those negative feelings aside, there is also a certain trump fatigue in Moscow. There were really high hopes for years ago and today U. S. Russian relations are at their lowest point since the Cold War. So there is some hope in Moscow that Biden will be more predictable and be able to start a sober professional dialogue on pressing bilateral issues of the first one that comes to mind his arms control. More predictable. Emily might also be interesting or helpful to China, right because it's been four sort of madcap years of trade wars and overnight tweets. And yet Beijing's position in the world is different now than it was when President Trump took office, isn't it? Yes, it's gone from what was then A developing regional power, too, in the U. S has eyes and this is accurate. A global competitors and that growing more negative view has led the US over the last four years to sanction Chinese officials, major Chinese companies and to limit the number of Of Chinese people who study and work in the US, But within China, you have the inverse of this negativity. China's had this surgeon self confidence since 2016. It's controlled a corona virus pandemic. It's produced some truly global companies, and that gives Beijing a sense that this is China's time to shine. And right now we're at this hugely uncertain moment in the relationship trumps refusal to conceive means that there's even warn certainty because Beijing cannot decide what its next move is going to be right now. Okay. If China is under the impression that it is, it's time to shine economically makes a lot of sense. Does a president Biden change that in any way? He could. Biden is expected to continue to push China and human rights issues such as Hong Kong civil rights Xinjiang, where hundreds of thousands of people have been detained. Remember he called cheating Ping a thug during one of the last presidential debates. But many in trying to hope us under Biden will temper the relationship and cooperate on things like trade and climate change. But Biden could also have a much more multilateral approach and that could actually put pressure on China. And Jane. Lastly, I want to reach back into history. Joe Biden once suggested that Iraq would be better off his three separate autonomous regions Kurdish, Sunni and Shiite. How was that idea held up? Yeah, so he was suggesting autonomous regions, but still with the central government and here in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, they very much welcome that support for increase power to the regions, but in other places it was seen as fuelling Iraq's sectarian divide. And there's still a bit of concern about that idea. But a lot of it has moved on to concern about Iran. And on that one he's seen as not being quite a cz obsessed with isolating Iran. So even some militia leaders here have welcomed his election. Okay. NPR's Jane Arraf in Erbil, Iraq, Emily faIIing in Beijing and Lucien Kim in Moscow. Thanks, everyone.

"And I was wrong. He didn't go to Baghdad in. There's there's two huge American basis camp victory victory south at Baghdad international airport. Trump is at ala Saad airbase, which is gigantic complex. It was extremely so safely at F16.'s there Steph. And so we're Trump is there's a defense. There's getting Killen baron who's a defense writer for defense one? And he's unannymous NBC right now, he tweeted this. This is pretty damn snarky. I gotta say. But he said Trump made into Iraq visiting only al-assad airbase is the safest most minimal visit Baghdad definitely not Erbil the capital of the Kurds who Trump just betrayed with a Syria retreat, which traditionally has been a must stop for every secretary of defense or chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. Visit those quote, it will Trump is neither is the president. And I'm here to tell you and Bush and Bill Clinton didn't never they barely took these risks. And that was for for Hillary and Bill Bosnia was a peacekeeping mission, and they were in a veil of of security Bush same thing in Bush went to Baghdad sure. But but it was it was secure. I mean, no one predicted a guy was gonna throw two shoes at him. I mean, please and Butch for the record dogs like fastballs. And so Trump is not going to visit Baghdad because he doesn't have business. They're easier to visit the troops. And clearly this is a reaction to getting burned. Earned by by the media for not even going. So he goes and he's getting snark debt. Also for the record. I'll let me let me teach. You all something that this guy who's paid to no defense doesn't apparently? No. But the Kurds in Iraq. Whose military is generally called the peshmerga are far different than the Kurds in Syria who who are very closely tied to the Kami Kurds in Turkey, the PK K. And if if given their druthers, there's there's this method there's a gigantic amorphous mass called the Kurds, and you know, what they have divisions. Dislike any other ethnicity? Does the Kurds in Iraq are not huge fans of the Kurds in Syria. They currently have a common foe in the form of ISIS. But as we speak, the Kurds in Syria have cut a deal with Assad in Damascus, which they they had this deal for five years until we came along and started leading him trading him and equipping them whole things of the Kurds in Iraq. Don't have a heck of a lot in common. Besides culture language with the Kurds in Syria, certainly not politics. But so anyway, now, you're all smarter than Kevin Barron from defense one he was just on MSNBC saying what he tweeted an hour. Ago that Trump Trump didn't go to Iraq because he's right? Okay. Well, Trump goes to Iraq. But he didn't visitor Bill and I answered them. I mean for the record. I I said he didn't betray the peshmerga he'd be safer in Erbil than Manhattan. So there's that US troops are being pulled out of Syria and they're coming back to where Fort Hood, Texas. No, they're coming into Iraq. So we're going to probably triple the amount of American troops that are in Iraq. And the Iraqis are not complaining about that. Because they wish that we hadn't left in the first place because that is what traded the vacuum that allowed ISIS to to grow their fungus in the shade in the basement. So anyway, that's that's what's happening. I mean, it's this is not a secret. He's Trump was burned for not visiting the troops. Now, they're what they're actually saying what Sarah Sanders said this is confusing now, she's sad. And once the time stamp on this. She said about an hour ago. Quote, President Trump and the first lady travelled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and senior military leadership to thank them for the service their success and their sacrifice and to wish them a merry Christmas. I really get a question that because we Trump was in DC yesterday yesterday was Christmas and the the period after afternoon on December twenty fifth is Christmas night. This is the day after Christmas. But anyway, I I I'm not entirely sure. How this how this works? There may have been a deception that started. I don't know what it would require leaving early early early Christmas day out of DC to make it to Iraq. What what you would call Christmas night? I mean, if I were them I would just own it and say well Christmas day would have been too predictable. It would have been telegraphing our punches. We're not going to give the enemy an idea that American presidents flying in on Christmas Blake, and you can you bring it up. Now. This is a guy I'm talking about. He's talking to MSNBC right now. Out there being the protector of you know, the status quo meaning protector of alliances protector of things of I like this like Donald Trump wants to change. We don't know what the new acting secretary Shanahan is going to do about it. I think the the pullout from Syria is a couple of things it's not the Obama doctrine. The Obama doctrine. Regional forces. He's he's anyway, that's Kevin baron. Who thinks that the Kurds one thing for the record the people called the Kurds? They are the largest ethnicity on earth without their own country. So there's that, but they're not all one thing. It would be like saying all Americans love the raiders or something like that. And if they played more this season like they did on Monday night that might be true. It was not not a bad game of their was a entertaining game. And but then again, everyone who plays for the Bronco should have been fired on the way back to to Denver. Well, I know what you've all been saying these days, I know I've been saying it for years, and it's can you believe the price of ground wail. Well, we might be seeing some relief there. Because finally, the Japanese are going to the flood the market is going to be a a a buyer's market Japan said Wednesday that it would withdraw from an international agreement and resume commercial whaling defiant move to prop up an industry that's still has cultural significance. There despite plummeting demand for whale meat. Can you believe that the the deal is Norway and Iceland have been out of this for a long time their allegiances the like I say they own it. The Norwegian says say you and what army or eating whale? You got that same with the Icelandic people. They say we like us are whale is weird that when Japan does that people think is weird. But you have like the epicenter of white people the people the the the the sons of Thor and they're out there eating whale. And no one says you grow stop it. Or we'll kick you out of the EU the Norway says we never joined and so there's really not a health let anyone can do for the Japanese people are revolt when they do this. And they've been the deal is the Japanese do handle correctly pointed this out this morning, the Japanese do scientific research on Wales, and it requires the capturing of Wales, and then for purely for scientific purposes, they have to kill the whales. And just so that it. It doesn't waste the the whale meat. They do repurpose that research has you know, food and stuff. So now, the Japanese are to sing s screw it. And what are their little tricks over the last couple of years is they will go to these tiny independent countries in the Caribbean. Like like turksancacoes? In Antigua, and they would endow them with these gold plated research facilities. So that at the International Whaling Commission, they could get their vote on this. But now the Japanese are just saying enough with that they say it won't be four endangered. We Wales that it will be minke whales in recent years. Japan is at an annual quota three hundred thirty three minke whales. Which included one hundred twenty two pregnant females. As part of a withdrawal from the international commission. Japan will stop its annual hunts in the Antarctic and limit whalers to its own wanders. So there you go where I'm from on the Olympic peninsula. Alto streaming come back.

"It is the Brentwood Erbil show. Good spayed this time with you to suspend the Roger Hitchcock five at five today because I think we're kind of in a holding pattern right now on this cavenaugh thing, and I want to speak to a couple of fundamental issues that we are that we are confronted with. We'll we'll we'll pick up the five five tomorrow with Roger get his thoughts on on all this stuff. That's happened all week long. But I think it's time for a very Frank and important discussion about who we want to be as a people, and what we want to be as a country. Here's what I mean by this. I remember what happened. During the LA riots. And I remember being absolutely horrified. Seeing Reginald Dennie pulled from his truck. Because he was in the wrong neighborhood. And being assaulted and beaten nearly to death on the streets of Los Angeles. And I remember watching football Williams and his friends smashing a cinderblock onto this man's head. And I remember at the time feeling so profoundly sad for my country feeling terror and shock and shame for that poor man who had been ripped from his truck and beaten savagely in the streets of an American city. And that image stuck with me. It stuck with me for a very long time. And I realized it is an incredibly thin line between. Forgets civility incivility because that speaks to politeness. I'm talking about civilized and uncivilized behavior. In a civil society in a civilized nation. We can have disagreements and make no mistakes. I believe at our core. As Americans we are a civilized nation. And we are overwhelmingly a civil society, we do not take to the streets with guns and bombs and swords when elections don't go away. At least the overwhelming majority of us, do not there are lunatics and savages and marauders and walking talking demons who do take to the streets and engage in acts of violence against innocent people. With whom they believe the politics is everything there are those people. They're called antifa. There are those people. Some of them are the white supremacists. The four white supremacists who were arrested this week. By US attorney in in the eastern district of Virginia and filed charges against them for what they did at Charlottesville. The overwhelming majority of the American people are not those people. We are not we do not make our decisions based on people's race. We do not designed to decide to conduct violent actions on the streets because of politics, and because of somebody's skin color or lack of skin color or sex or orientation in an uncivilized society. When you have the women's March every January with the pink hats. There would be acts of violence being perpetrated against women. I have no doubt that in nations with which we are in the Middle East a gathering of women displaying that kind of political power would be met with brutal force, which is the true irony of somebody like windows are sore who is a professional sharia saleswoman running around claiming that she's in favor of women's rights. But I digress. We have a choice in our country to be civilized and civil or to be uncivilized and uncivil. But again, make no mistake. Make no mistake. One can be uncivil without being uncivilized. One can be passionate blindly passionate to passionate. And one could apologize for bringing a little too much spice to the argument. Right. That's understandable. And I think you saw that with Brad Kavanagh when he was testifying a week ago. Was he disrespectful to the senators? Sure was he passionate. Yes. Had he been accused of being gang rapist. Yes. Had he been accused of doing unspeakable acts two women on a routine basis. Yes. He'd been accused of all those things. But we have got to make a decision. Are we going to be a nation ruled by a very small mob holding us hostage? Are we going to be that country? Do you walk that country for your kids? Do you want your son to be afraid to express his opinion or your daughter afraid to express her opinion for fear that somebody might docs, your address and have people show up at your house with a weapon or with a mob looking to tear somebody limb from limb track the come the normal. No, it should not and who's to blame for that. Well, you could make the argument the Thia is to blame. I always do the society's. The blame thing is not to blame the political culture created in our country and fostered in our country by the professional political class and their media allies. I'll admit it was jarring. When once upon a time Joe Wilson yelled out you lie at the president of the United States as he was giving an address in the congress jarring. And you know, I recall distinctly Joe Wilson being supported by people who agreed with the move. And I also remember a lot of people saying, it's really not the place for the time to yell out in that fashion. That's not who we are as a country. That's not who we are as a people. We respect our institutions. We respect our offices. And we respectfully disagree with anybody. We want to but we have to do it. We're cooked. We are commanded to do it in a decent way. I think back to that vicious attack in the Los Angeles riots on Reginald Denny, and I think of the bitter irony that the man who is filming at the time that attack on Reginald Dennie that recorded the most famous images was Bob Tur who was an NBC news helicopter pilot in Los Angeles. His daughter is Katie tour who works on arguably the most partisan, hyper partisan psychotically partisan cable network in the world MSNBC. She once was in a relationship with Keith Olbermann for a number of years, a hyper partisan, a lunatic who many times over in the two thousands would refer to George W Bush and Dick Cheney is actually as actually Hitler. An MS NBC never sanctioned him MSNBC never said don't do that MSNBC never said don't say that. And thus the normalization was begun that you can call the president Hitler. You can call the president a storage for the Soviets astute for the Russians you can do all those sorts of things you want. But what you apparently cannot do is win an argument. What country? Do you want to have do you want country that looks like Honduras? That is wracked by violence with competing, clicks and street gangs. Do you want gangs of New York style? Politicking on the streets of America where people can feel free to run up on somebody and confront them in a restaurant at a gas station in a movie theater in a house of worship or on a sidewalk. One political party has fostered that direct action approach, and it's interesting that I use the term direct action because for many years, there was a terrorist organization. Very famous left wing terrorist organization called direct action oxygen direct. That direct action is a hallmark of the progressive left. And they're lunacy. That sort of direct action and direct confrontation is exactly the sort of thing that grows up out of the weather underground playbook with Bill Ayers, and those people who thought it was okay to bomb. Colleges and universities and recruiting stations. And yes, even an attempted bombing at the congress of the United States. I get it. There is a fetish for the early one thousand nine hundred seventy s in this country. Why I couldn't tell you the music and the fashions and the hygiene practices were awful. I lived in the early seventies. I don't want to go back to the early seventies. But for whatever reason this dinosaur class of people like Chris Matthews as how are desperate to go back to the heyday of political violence and assassinations on American streets, we have to say no over the course of this hour, I'm going to make the case for what it is. We need to do what we need to aspire to. And what it is that we need to be aiming for it's not this. Eight hundred seven sixty K F and B one eight hundred seven sixty five three six two.

"And so yeah, you just don't run overdue. You don't really want to overdo. Anyone thing? You've got to you know, you gotta make sure you're not like relying too heavily on anything. Whether it be a plant or a food. It's like. Making sure that your your balanced in you're helping your stomach like one of the things I was thinking about too is just how we've lost the wisdom of how to eat healthy in our country. I remember one of the things that is a part of that is when refrigeration came into being and how it's it's fairly recent. I don't know if it was in the forties or the fifties. I don't know the actual year. But before that no cultures had cold food that they were eating our cold liquids. They were drinking, and and that has done a lot of damage to people's ability to be healthy and to digest food properly. And so, you know, even among our native people I look at how the wisdom of how to eat properly in helpfully has kind of gone by the wayside. That's for different reasons with the boarding schools in commodity foods at the government supplant. Added on top of instead of replaced. They replaced them. The all the natural wild foods with canned meat white flour sugar and things that were not having any sustenance to them and actually helping people to be not healthy. And so they I see that, you know, there are some cultures on the planet that that remember how to take good care of your digestion in understand how the organs work, and what organs are on certain hours of the day. There's like a whole system there in. So there's a lot of wisdom about that too in. I think that the plant wisdom goes along with that as well. And so it it's a deep thing, you know, to to work with plans, it's a deep a deep wisdom, and you want to kind of understand all those different angles. I think in order to really benefit. And and respect the plans are a lot of questions in conversations happening right now in Erbil community around what it means to be a non native person working with plant medicines on indigenous lands, and I'm just curious to hear from you. As a first nations person what your feelings are around wild crafting around working with plant medicines wild medicines. If you believe that people should be just growing herbs and not wild crafting or just working with plants that they have a connection with in their own ancestry. Or if you feel like it's okay for people to be, you know, wild crafting and working with the native plants around them. I'd love to hear your thoughts and any words of wisdom that you have to share with our community here. So we can have the most respect and awareness around this important issue. Well, I know for our tribes here, we have in the treaties. We have what what was designated. What did they call it usual in a custom d- areas? So if there was hunting and gathering that's been done in there were certain territories that were set aside for each time in each tribes Tweety to go to these usual and accustomed to areas and do harvesting plants in while foods. And so I think like being aware of where those places are and also going with respect and remembering to offer prayers and remembering to only take what you need like don't go crazy and go in there and just do away with everything there's a Canadian friend of mine she's from Okinawa. Okinawa try but she said she was raised with Dell daughters. They told her when you go out those plans, they need your prayers. This is every everything that we do in this life is. About reciprocity. Everything is about giving and receiving giving receiving end that we always need to give something we need to make an offering in order to receive something. So that we can perpetuate in benefit the life that were that were taking we're using. And so our prayer and our offering and our respect in our responsibility are the things that we can offer. And so we go in and we we make an offering and we make a prayer. We let it be known what we're gonna do with this medicine. And we only take what we need only take what we need, and we wanna make sure that there's more left in that in that area..

"We've been hearing for months now that the iraqi city of mosul is about to fall on that isis is about to be kicked out but the battle to retake the city isn't quite over yet civilians are still trapped pockets of isis fighters are dug into neighborhoods in the old city so what is this tentative declaration of freedom for moshel mean for its people and for the bigger broader fight against isis extremists generap is going to help us answer that question she is covering the story from erbil iraq jane what can you tell us about where the fighting does stand now we've got complete competing claims rocky saying it's victory others saying not yet so here's the thing it is a victory in a sense because we have to remember that isis came in almost three years ago and the reason it managed to take mozell was the army basically ran away it fell under the weight of its own corruption so for three years iraqi forces have been fighting and dying and they have now reached that last half the square mile around the old city where they're fighting dislodged the last of the isis fighters but we also have to remember that this is in many senses in iraq and in mosul in particular the last down for isis they're surrounded so there have nowhere else to go so for a couple of reasons of the fact that it's their last stand the fact that requires a lot of coordination between competing forces and the us can't really use a lot of airstrikes there it is going to be a very tough few days airstrikes because there are still so many civilians who are there any any idea how they're ferrying and whether or not they are able to leave at this point.
