"Sure. I'm going to take you to the height of the war against ISIS in March 2017. On that morning, ISIS was still holding a great deal of territory and talent anvil was doing a number of strikes to prepare for the invasion of an area along the Euphrates river that was full of small farming villages. Essentially, they wanted to hit any target that they could so that a week later when Syrian allied forces came in, they wouldn't face much resistance. So on that morning, before dawn, they sent a couple drones over this area and one of the drones was circling over a small farming village called karama. At the time, they're not only talent is watching this stuff, but so are the drone crews that are flying the aircraft and intelligence analysts watching from the United States. And what they see in the high definition camera is a town that's asleep. You know, dark, flat roofed houses, no one's out. They have heat sensors that can see people really closely even in the dark and there's no movement. Talon anvil lets everybody in the team know, hey, we want to find a lot of targets today because we wanted to use all of the bombs and missiles on the drone and go home empty. They have a special term for that in the military called going Winchester. So they tell everyone, hey, we want to go Winchester today, find us some targets. But at that point, it's really quiet. They're flying around not seeing anything. Talent anvil lets the team know that there's a building of interest that they have some intelligence about. That is an ISIS command center. They focus in on this command center and see no movement..

The Code of Hammurabi

The Code of Hammurabi

"Hemmer robbie was the king of the babylonian empire from approximately seventeen ninety two to seventeen fifty bc. Just to put that into perspective. This was over a thousand years. Before the city of rome was even founded as babylon emperors went hammurabi was pretty successful when he rose to power babylon was still a relatively minor player in the region and when he died he had conquered most of potato along both the tigris and euphrates rivers. The region was almost entirely in. What is today modern iraq. Like any good king win. Hammurabi wasn't conquering nearby kingdoms. He was passing laws and making sure that his kingdom ran smoothly and efficiently. It is believed that hamurabi sent out scholars to the various kingdoms. He conquered to collect the various laws of all realms and then collected them into a uniform code of laws for everyone. The result of this was the code of hammurabi which is believed to be two hundred and eighty two laws regarding any number of different infractions. Crimes and disputes the laws were inscribed on a stone and clay tablets and spread around the kingdom. The stele which was found in one thousand nine hundred one is exceptionally well. Preserved the object itself is a hard blackstone known as diorite. it's shaped like a giant human finger at the top is an image of hammurabi receiving the laws from the babylonian god chumash. There is then a preface which states the following quote and who in bell called me by name hamurabi the exalted prince who feared god to bring about the rule of righteousness in the land to destroy the wicked and evil doers. So that the strong should not harm the week. So that i should rule over the black headed people like chamo- and enlighten the land to further the well being of mankind unquote about six hundred years later. The was taken by the king of elam. Shrek know if you've ever watched the two thousand two movie the emperor's club with kevin kline. You'll remember that should noonday was as the example of someone that no one remembers except that i just mentioned him in podcast and he was in a movie under the reign of Dante was believed that he erased two three dozen of the laws. Originally written by hamurabi researchers have been able to recreate the deleted laws by finding other clay tablets. That had the law's written on them sometime after that it was buried as ancient things tend to do and it was rediscovered in one thousand nine hundred one. So what does the code of hammurabi say. Many of the laws are examples of what is known in latin as lex talionis which is a law where the punishment is similar to the crime. You might know better as an eye for an eye. For example law one hundred ninety six states quote if a man destroy the eye of another man they shall destroy his. I if one break a man's bone they shall break his bone unquote however the rules were different depending on what social class. You're in for example. I didn't read the entirety of law. Ninety six just now the rest of it is as follows quote if one destroy the eye of a freeman or break the bone of a freeman. He shall pay won gold meena if one destroy the eye of a man slave or break a bone of a man slave. He shall pay one half his price unquote so the social status of the victim of a crime was a consideration in the law. If some of this sounds familiar. That's because it's very similar to the laws that are in the bible in the book of leviticus the code of hammurabi was written well before the book leviticus so it's quite possible if not probable that some of the laws from leviticus were adopted from babylonian laws the final version of leviticus was written after the jewish babylonian exile. So it's in fact very possible. There are laws in the code deal with commerce divorce rent liability and even medical malpractice there even laws dealing with contracts and the issuing of receipts. It's true that most of the laws are of a rather brutal. If x than wide variety with punishments ranging from drowning burning severing hands gouging out is that cetera. Most of these type of laws are no longer on the books in most countries. Obviously however there are some surprisingly forward thinking laws for something that was written down thirty seven hundred years ago for example law one hundred forty nine states quote. If this woman does not wish to remain in her husband's house then he shall compensate her for the dowry that she brought with her from her father's house and she may go unquote that is basically an ancient version of no fault divorce. However there was one concept that was in the code of hammurabi which was revolutionary and is still with us today. That is the concept of being innocent until proven guilty. In fact these are the very first law's written down in the code. Here are the first three laws in the code of hammurabi quote law one if anyone in snare another putting a ban upon him but he cannot prove it then let he that ensnared him be put to death law to if anyone bringing accusation against a man and the accused goto the river and leap into the river if he sink in the river his accuser shall take possession of his house but if the river prove that the accused is not guilty and he escaped unhurt then he who had brought the accusation shelby put to death while he who leapt into the river shall take possession of the house that had belonged to his accuser law three if anyone bringing accusation of any crime before the elders and does not prove what he has charged you shall if a capital offence charged put to death unquote so basically they had really harsh perjury laws and they made it really hard to pass frivolous lawsuits. So while i don't think anyone would really wanna live under the code of hammurabi today. It's an important part of humanity's legal history old hammer. Arby's two hundred and eighty two law's written in stone with a very first step in creating a system which has led to the one hundred and seventy five thousand two hundred and sixty pages of the united states code of federal regulations today

"9198521215 again 91985212 15. My name is Mark Owens and Brian Makayla in something we were talking about Just a second ago is how men and women and how they're different on the way they handle their finances. And that's something that as a coach, your job is to make sure that everyone gets on the same page. Well, this is pretty cool. Right here is something to be on the same page. And I want you guys to tell me more about this. If you've saved 7 $50,000 and more for retirement, the first seven colors will get you a complimentary second opinion. Now. Normally, that's going to cost $995. But the first seven college right now get a second opinion that is free of charge. 9198521215 again 9198521215 get that complimentary second opinion. And as we were talking about with making sure that the husbands and wives and everyone's on the same page how important it is for that, like retirement checklist. Yeah, well, one of the things we're going to do mark and are part of our second opinion services. We're going to review with the income plan. Looks like we're gonna look at tax efficiency. We're gonna look at the wrist, so we're going to stress test their portfolio. We're also going to find the all the hidden fees in there and let people know exactly how much they're paying in their current portfolios and point out Other things to him. Hey, maybe there's some insurances or some annuities that probably could use some improvement. Maybe not. But we're gonna let people know if you've got the good stuff or if you might need to just make some adjustments to what you're currently doing to be a little bit more efficient. Our whole goal is to make sure that couples are on the same page and make sure we're on the same page in terms of expenses and what retirement looks like for each person, If if one person's goal for retirements just kind of said home and Spent time with the grandchildren go to the beach. You know, every couple months versus the other spouse to say, Hey, we wanna be taken those Caribbean cruises and riverboat cruises down the Euphrates River. You know, every month or so those air too big big differences in terms of time and in terms of spending and expenses. So for us, it's just tow. Bring those two things together for people and all things Financial. Hey, how can we help people be more efficient with their taxes? How could we help him? Be more? Efficient. Maybe whether health insurance is the retired prior to age 65. How do we help him? Make sure they've got the income coming in every single month. Regardless of what's going on in the market. A lot of people just don't understand some of those strategies and absolutely want to do is just show them because most of the people that we work would have done a phenomenal job of saving They don't have a whole lot of debt. So now we just gotta make him efficient. Make sure they're not paying more in taxes. Make sure that all of their retirement dreams are going to come to fruition. 9198521215 get that complimentary second opinion as you get ready for retirement, and you just mentioned taxes. Strategies, Forbes said. It's surprising how many wealthy Americans have no idea how to pass their money onto their heirs and tax efficient way. Why is that? Well in short, I think the government's made it pretty complicated. Honestly, we've had a lot of law changes in the past year year and a half that have drastically changed the way that you can inherit your IRAs, especially with the secure act. That was huge, eliminating the stretch provision and how you know beneficiaries now have to take those accounts out in 10 years instead of being able to stretch them. There's also talk of a lot of new legislation, You know? Are they going to, you know, take out the stepped up basis. Are they going to decrease the overall estate exclusion? We don't know. But what we do know is that the government is going to need to raise money and one way that they're doing this is affecting. Inheritances and the way people are receiving money from their loved ones. So it's important. Make sure that all of that is going to be passed on in a tax efficient way. And one of the things to mark is that a lot of times high net worth individuals, their money. Mistakes are typically result of. Hey, they've been really successful in their professional life, whether they built a company and solder. They've done some other things. And so sometimes it's good to have self assurance and confidence in terms of basically getting financial success. But there's not cross over carry over there When you're talking about legacy planning, sometimes that can even be a hindrance to Effectively kind of preserving and managing wealth. You know that you accumulated and retirement and it's really surprising. We've met with people you know, 15 2030 40 $50 Million network that really for the level of assets that they have very little tax planning within their financial strategies. And so you know, the government's gonna have their hand out. And you know, one of the folks that we we met with. He said. Yeah, I said, Why are you here? Very successful, gentlemen. And he said I'm here for a sanity check Brian and he said, You know, one of the things that really is frustrating me is that I've made this money I've made all this money. And I was taxed on it. And now the government wants attacks my family on the success that you know that my wife and I have had in accumulating this money, and I don't think that's fair. But what I tell people all the time, especially if you've been successful, really successful. In accumulating large amount of money or assets is the plane. It's either going to be done to you or for you, and there's so many estate planning techniques when you're talking about gifting, utilizing trust, properly structure, asset protection. There's so many things that you can do And if your current team the one thing I've noticed about high net worth individuals they do have teams. They're usually really good about having a group of people that they've surrounded themselves with. You just want to make sure it's the right people and that your team is swimming in the same waters as you are in terms of your assets, and and here's what I mean by that mark, if you've got a team and they're really good, but they're used to work in and out 1 to 2 Million or 123 million or five million space, and you're a 10 15 or $20 million person. You want to make sure you're working with a team that is very familiar with the strategies..

"This is the darkest of dark of the people are plunged in darkness their hearts there's no the holy spirit again has been restrained. He's been removed. There's no hope you know. I heard the best description of how we all always think. Well what would help. Like i think the most sobering thing is that the hell hell will be where the holy spirit is no longer there yet. Total separation total separation from god. We don't think about that because even in our hard-hearted sinfulness that we have the holy spirit speaks in brings that conviction sometimes. We'll bring hope in the desolate most darkest of times. That's gone rare. Plunge many physically. Maybe the entire kingdom of him is is plunged in darkness but everything of their mindset their vision their hearts is dark And it's also seems like a metaphor. It's interesting that the throne is specifically mentioned. The throne is where is the source of pride. It's the source of everything that the beast had built he sits upon. This is my kingdom Yeah this is my rule. This is what i've bill you know. And that is alternately. His downfall the thing that he's most proud of that fuels his arrogance and his power is the very thing that god's going to pour out his wrath upon i mean that's a metaphor for life. The things that did steal the make us you know so proud. So prideful ultimately end up being our downfall and so you want to move onto the sixteen. Six six bowl is so extensive. So i'm gonna try and just bullet point. Summarize this the six angel pours out his bowl on the great river euphrates. The water was dried up to prepare the way for kings from the east. And i saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet three unclean spirits. Like frogs for they are demonic spirits performing signs who go abroad to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for battle on the great day of god the almighty behold. I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake keeping his garments on that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed and they assembled them at the place that in hebrew called armageddon so so much going on here how much the first thing to notice. Is that the six angel pours out the six bowl which has striking similarities to the six trumpet at six trump. Angels where someone to lead an army in the euphrates was actually mentioned. There as well as they went across the euphrates to destroy one third of the earth's population. And here we find the six bold drying the euphrates allowing the kings of the east travel crossed and conquer. It's notable to point out that in my study..

"The Jesus Christ Show tomorrow morning at six on K of I am 6 40 or stimulating talk. If I am 6 40. It is the dark secret place. Brian sits in here until 11 here our number three for the 26th of December 2023 Way conversation with someone interested in such things. They asked me if I had Patrol reports from 2004 to them Fire the 18 months I was in Iraq, the fire support officer and infantry infantry officer, And so I cracked into my my old word documents that I used to have to submit at the end of every patrol. Mm. And as a read through them, I was struck by him. How many of them I'd for gotten, And so I brought in three is sort of a representative sample in the last break out. Whenever the format of how this was to be reported my information the unit who I am what routes we took. When did we leave and we come back? On this date on the 25th of July to them for this patrol report. My first mission was to go to one of her outlying Platoon forward operating bases Now my base was in the green zone of the Far West end. Called Bob Highlander and our area of Operation Responsibility was far to the south in the Big Southern peninsula of the Euphrates River. A deep, deep Sunni Arab bath assed. Um, stronghold. There were Al Qaeda guys from Chechnya, Al Qaeda guys from Yemen and then, of course, former regime elements fr Reza's. We called them and so it is really common for guys to get mortared. Sometimes they were pretty good. Sometimes they were bad. This was concerning because these guys fired three rounds pretty close. You are little fob called fob yellow cake because their mission was to guard. The Tuwaitha nuclear facility, the one that the Israelis bond in 81 destroying the French reactor. Saddam re constructed everything with the Russian reactor and Italian rancher. You never hear that story. Anyway. Um s o I in my report under enemy activity that block I said patrol arrived yellowcake, approximately 0 900. Received briefing from staff sergeant asked about a mortar attack the day before 24th of July 3 round attack lasted approximately 45 to 60 seconds, points of impact poise. We're approximately north south in a line 100 M, east of Yellow cakes, Eastern perimeter. When I give the location of where the three mortars hit, Then I have a picture of the based tale the fins of little mortars. I determined where most likely it came from, and I said fragments of tailfin assembly confirms and 82 millimeter Iraqi manufacturer based on letter lettering on the primer. It's like a shotgun shell or mortar very much like a shotgun shell has as a primer of brass primer on the bottom. That was pretty routine. I was our first mission. Usually every morning was checking on On, uh, points of impact and then determining where it came from, and then doing our best to go find scars on the pavement where mortar base plate would scratch up And in doing so you could you could determine patterns. You could figure out who's a good more German and who's half asked. So who's a priority? On all that. So also in the course of my duties, I in our whole a lar, which was about half the size of l a county. I'm not kidding. South of Baghdad. I would engage with local merchants, old guys smoking local government officials that we'd appointed or young guys shooting the crap. On guy had translators that I could trust to not tell me what I want to hear. But just tell me the truth. Block number two local national activity and encounters and at this time in July of 2004 We were in frequent nightly firefights with the Sauder militia, the Shia militia that were led by the cleric Moqtada Sauder, who had fled to Iran. And I said quote, spoke with eight local men at a roadside market vicinity and I give a grid west side of road subjects included combat action of 9 July 2004 men claimed that you have we had a nasty firefight in the middle of the city on the night of the night in July. Men claimed that U. S forces quote fired in every direction, close quote. I pointed out that I surveyed damage after the fight, and only one resident claimed damage they had no comment. We argued about what is best for Iraq's future. They said that the violence is due to us presents a yellow cake. I asked if Iraqi authorities would be attacked at yellow cake. They said No. Pointed out. The Children are in danger of being injured because the mortars are inaccurate. They brought up the action of the ninth of July again. I posed a rhetorical question. What if we had used all of our available power that night? They conceded that we actually held back or available firepower and that we had more disciplined than our Attackers. Why do you think we do that? I asked. One of them had the correct answer that we sought to minimize collateral damage. We spoke briefly about locals versus outsiders, and none of the men wanted to name tribes and clans. Several agreed that many quote new faces close quote. We're in the area. End of block the third block any other information of value. Nothing significant to report that is probably the most routine. Besides, being frequently engaged, attacked on the way into our air or the way out, which never made it in the report. There wasn't significant. That's a very typical routine patrol. That we would get a list of places to investigate. And along the way on DSA we we were given wide leeway to take whatever route we wanted. And so we went off track very, very frequently, and in doing so sometimes surprised, complacent insurgents either Shia or Sunni Al Qaeda guys. It wasn't uncommon, and we would literally turn a corner and catch guys embedding an I e. D. Just simply Because we went off the standard tracks, we would come up behind them. Aziz. They tended to look at the road up and down to see the Americans coming. They never turned around and looked behind them. That was a very frequent experience that we had. Let's say a typical A typical day in my life that year and a half, But you understand they're also untypical day, so I'll read you two more reports to sour of untypical days that became frankly, too typical.

Who Will Replace Alex Trebek as Host?

"On. What's going on with jeopardy? What are they going to do? They got enough. Alex Trebek could go through Christmas. I said two weeks ago, I said Ken Jennings is going to be the new House of Jeopardy. And now they've named him his interim post. He starts taping shows the next week and then the show start airing January 11th. On def He's for the month of January. He'll be on and if he's good, he'll be the permanent host. So that's the intention was always to have him as the permanent, huh? And why would he not be good? I mean, you know, he's not the greatest performer in the world. But either was Alex. You're backing. You know, just a serious, very knowledgeable guy. That's all you have to be on that show. I can't tell you last night. If you're you know if you're watching jeopardy during this odd period, where Alex project is actually deceased, but performing last night on the show he tapped in Okay, but that's no. I'm not kidding. Here's a man who's like six weeks away. No, but he's like, six weeks away from dying, and he's tapped this thing on the show last night and I had is off to him. I never realized what a great guy he was. He's a great guy, and actually You know, he was a lot of fun. He was very smart. He knew jeopardy, and he knew the question that he knew the answers that makes you really knew the stuff that was going on. Ken Jennings has got to be more than just smart at separate E. He's gotta prove to be gregarious. He's a great guy, Ken Jennings and everything you just said he knows this questions. He knows the answers. No one knows the game better than him. It has to be engaging. He has to be sexy. You know what I mean? He has to have some, You know, he asked you out of the tap down, so you know, let's see if you can do it. But I was so impressed last night. Alex Trebek, captain of the show. I'm like Jesus, you're about to die and you're tap dancing. What a great thing. But so if it's that Ken Jennings what's the backup plan? Who else would they? Were they thinking of? There's some talk. I feel like there's some talk going on that LeVar Burton could be a host like something out there. I just feel it, You know, he's he's smart, funny. He's a performer. He's played deputy really well in the past. And he's definitely going to be one of the interim host. And I just hope you that he can't wear that thing that you were on Star Trek around the eyes and then you can't see anything but I think would be great to have contact Qiantang as the host of jeopardy. That would be a funny end to the story. Yeah. Now you know how this business works. I'm sure every low life you know, TV host has been calling begging for the job even before he died. And, you know they're vultures. Yeah. I mean, I'm sure wink. Martin Bell doesn't win part and don't wanna do it Is he still around? Might be 100, but he'd be perfect. All right. What did you do? You do a very good. You know, Mark, you would be a very good husband. Effort it. I gotta be honest. I can't even watch the show. I don't know. One answer to anything. I I I can't watch it. You know when they say the river and the Euphrates that I don't know any of these things. How could I can't financing e just know a cracker. I know Euphrates crackers. They're very good. You know, I played around once against Ken Jennings. Hey, came on the show. We played a round of jeopardy. I did beat him on one question, but he beat me unlike the next six, so Hey, You know what show? I've gotten good at, Well, a fortune. Yeah, that one. I can't watch. I don't know. I just It's I, You know, repetitive. I just can't deal with it. It is, but you know, because we have no place to go between seven and eight, and I'm stuck at home. I've been watching these shows and I've actually gotten good at solving the puzzles. All right. I think I'm becoming a little old lady in waiting. Yeah,

"Of man, the fears that men fear, bring a snare, they prohibit freedom in the heart and the life of an individual continuing in the verse. But who so puts his trust in the Lord shall be safe. That's where were to be were to put our trust in the Lord that's where we find safety. That's all we find peace. That's where we find abundance. That's where we find all that God has available for us as his children. Some thirty four let's. Take a look there. Some thirty four. And Verse Four. I sought the Lord. Andy heard me. In, delivered me from all my fears. I sought the Lord. Any heard me when we seek God when we pour our heart out to our heavenly father when we look to him for answered prayer for deliverance when we trust him and go to him. He hears us and not only that he delivers us. From all our fears God delivers us he frees us from the snare of the adversary. He frees us from the bondage of fear from the fears that men fear. What a tremendous truth that is. In Joshua, we see a tremendous record. In. The Old Testament of God's deliverance of his people in Joshua. Chapter one verse one is where will begin. And it says here. Now after the death of Moses The Servant of the Lord, it came to pass that the Lord spoken to Joshua the son of non. Minister saying and verse to here is what God said. As my servant, is dead. Now therefore arise over this Jordan you and all this people under the land which I do give to them even to the children of Israel every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon. That have given you as I said Unto Moses. From the Wilderness and this Lebanon even under the great river, the River Euphrates all the land of the Hittites and under the great seat toward the going down of the Sun shall be your coast. This God talking to Joshua Verse Five there shall not any man be able to stand before you all the days of your life as I was with Moses. So, I will be with you, I will not fail you nor forsake you. This is Old Testament. Joshua was a servant of the Lord. He was not a son of God is those of us today who believe? On Jesus Christ believed that God raised Christ from the dead and confess Jesus as Lord, we are sons of God..

Stuck Holding Double Badgers

"So a game that me and Tom Played on the Internet of all places just the other day on a service table Topa. Could Renisha. Insisted on calling it repeatedly in a frankly probably slightly racist manner anyway. Is a glorious creation of dominoes and domination featuring animals. The surround little patches of ground how flowers and trees placed on them that eventually popoff. Awarding points the person in control of that area. Now, this is a game by Michael Kiessling and Wolfgang Kramer who you might know Rassoul and our grand. But this isn't the first time they've worked together created the mask trilogy, of Decal, Mexica and cosker. which are all as quince points out in this document I'm reading from. There were lovely. Lovely Gates. Mexico is an absolute delight. So a lot of time for these two when it comes to games way you place lucky things on maps in ways going to irritate other players, which is all I remember was the game in Mexico. Now. This has an immediately striking theme could re nature. You have these dominoes that you're drawing up from when holding three of them in your hand anytime. Each. Domino. As you might expect, has a little image on either side of it and they're all different types of animals, some birds, some badges, some bloody aisles, and I kept drawing double owls, which was a nightmare because there was nowhere for to connect to, and really you are just taking intends to play a domino style game where you have this grid, put them out onto but the placement rules. As you would expect from Domino's you cannot put an owl and up against Abacha and that is illegal as we learned in the story of Adam and Eve. The trickiness is no freefall with this. There is a specific grid that you can follow and as you play, you're going to be slowly surrounding these enclosures and everytime put down domino on the board in one of the enclosed spaces adjacent to it. which is kind of patch of dirt. You may place one of your selection of the light full. Phone Ah. La. Fauna for them foreigner in flora. So you can place like a little bit of grass or you can place like shrubbery. Shrub or you can place like a small tree or you can place a massive trade and there's no cost for place in these things it's just that you have a very limited amount of all of these things. Even a couple of massive trees you got loads of grass up the scoring valleys of these things obviously scale up as you go along and the trick is. The moment at which that soiling closure is fully surrounded by Dominos always surrounded as it is possible for it to be. You'll immediately score that. Who has the largest score of trees and shrubberies and graphics as you're in that area is going to get the big prize bonus with whoever second, getting a lesser known but a big thing. Is No one else? Is there you get the big bonus and the little bonus which means you have the strange game of creeping domino's our across the board. Whilst trying to take control of areas but obviously you're not. You'll never connecting your dominos you're connecting to anyone's domino's so becomes. The game, it reminded me most of that. She was T- GRISSOM Euphrates of it being more than anything a game of of having is everywhere and. Saying the place you should be putting a thing down the thing you should be blocking next

No Filler Sidetrack: Frampton Comes Alive!

"Welcome to no filler. The music podcast dedicated to sharing the often overlooked hidden gyms. It's the fill the space between the singles on our favorite records. My name is Travis. Gummer brother Quentin with me. Last week. We talked about about Paul. McCartney's MTV unplugged live album so we thought to ourselves. You know we just talked about the greatest rock musician of all time. And one of his live records WanNa talk about the greatest best selling live album of of all time and that would of course be Peter. Frampton comes alive it's called Frampton comes And that would be called Frampton. Hampton comes alive So here's the thank you about this record. This was You know one of those constantly in the background of our childhood type albums right but I can honestly tell you the I only know now the three songs everybody else associates with this record right right I mean I I've never I've never. I pulled it up in hit play and and pay attention to it so the ones that I'm familiar with our show me the way baby. I love your way and and do you feel like we do. Yeah so you know. That's essentially like to me. Though songs are synonymous with Frampton. Even that's my that's the beginning in the end of my frampton knowledge. So will the thing about those three songs. I if you if you've heard Peter Frampton on the radio you've heard these versions of of the Euphrates Alive version of those. Yeah it's interesting. It's like. Yeah they were all released before. This live album came out but like so years at a band uncalled humble pie as the guitarist Before he did his own solo stuff and when he branched off and did his own thing I mean when he was on the charts but he would be pretty damn low on lists. It wasn't until this album came out that he was starting to see any Kennedy success as a solo artist. So I feel like a lot of it had to do with the time that it was released so this live album album was released in one thousand nine hundred seventy six A solid four years into him getting out there doing his own thing touring constantly Eh. His first full length album as a solo artist was in nineteen. Seventy two with an album called wind of change. And Yeah there's a couple songs. It's actually quite a few songs on this album. Wind of change that he does live on. Trampling comes live but yeah he just for whatever reason season like no one really seemed to care about them until this album came out just going to read some stats here. Because it's pretty pretty pretty ridiculous so as of two thousand eleven. This record has gone platinum eight times. It was voted album of the year by Rolling Stone In nineteen seventy six. It was in the top ten for the majority of seventy-six once it came out and it was at number one for ten weeks straight and a lot of it had to do with the facts that Ah. FM Radio was starting to do was called album oriented rock stations. You know which were the you know the is. It's basically basically like what we think of when we think of you know like genre specific. FM Stations. I think our dad used that exact phrase when he was on her your episode yeah he was a DJ around this time dude. I'm sure he was playing. The shit out of preempting comes alive But yeah so so laying shit you right off the vinyl plank playing what playing just like your phrase playing playing the shit out sometimes subject to stop and think that's a funny phrase that humans came up with Playing the shit out of something but anyway are you really taking that Shit and going somewhere with it or you just taking are just dropping off shit into the toilet you mean like Oh yeah when you take shed shed. We're going to go take a take you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA go take a shower Reagan ago. What were you doing with it? That's mean Linguistic I do Linguistics Person On. We'll get to the bottom. Okay so Yes all of those things he said it is incredible. I feel it's I mean to me. It's like you hear the audience there. I mean he he he able to I mean was it. Where was it recorded did he did? He packs eight. You know this is actually four different Concerts okay yeah so Two of them were Our New York in nineteen seventy actually. All of them are recorded in nineteen seventy five Two of them were in California and the other two. You were in New York and I don't know which track belongs to what set you know what I mean but to put things in perspective One of the recordings is from Avenue called the Winterland ballroom in San Francisco in June of seventy five and and this was Frampton. First Time as a headliner. was that show six months before this album came out you was the opening act six months. He wasn't headlining before. This album came out. Basically like nineteen seventy five was his first headlining act and and that set was actually recorded and ended up on this record. I just think it's interesting to me. Abandon put a library at another other. You know until they have enough like you know I. It seems like something that doesn't happen until much later after success. You know what I mean like. After six happens happens you put out a best of album or alive L.. Yeah they took a gamble for sure. Do you think it's one of those things where it's like. This guy is just so much better live that you know we need to. We need to put a live record because it will sell better than his other stuff or there's so many great songs from all of his other albums uh-huh at how they put up before this wind of change and seventy two frampton camel in seventy three. Something's things happening in seventy four and then a self titled Album called Frampton became on Sarah. You relief for radio. Yeah Okay Yeah this is interesting you know it just makes you wonder like what the what the thinking was. Maybe it was just one of those ways for the record the record label to get get older songs to be on the radio again. You know what I mean like. If you put out a live record then all of his old catalog is now new again in a way a new record. It is the way so what I love about this album and I found a really great copy of it probably like a goodwill or something a while ago so I've had a record copy of it for Awhile so I've listened to it all they through quite a few times. There's something about the way that the microphones picked up the audience and like his reaction you know in his little. Will you know conversations with the what the audience in between the tracks. That makes it a really special. Listen

Trump's decision to abandon the Kurds in Syria sends a dangerous message to US allies around the world

"And joining us now David Phillips the director of the peace building and writes programs each year for the study of human rights to Columbia University and a former senior adviser and foreign affairs expert to the United States department of state during the administrations of presidents Clinton bush and Obama the author of an uncertain ally Turkey and other ones dictatorship and the great betrayal how America abandon the kids and lost the Middle East he has an article at the institute for the study of human rights shock and disgust trump turns a blind eye to take a slaughter of Kurds in Syria welcome to background briefing David Phillips thank you and this outrageous move by Donald Trump which is similar to the move that he tried alea back in December which prompted the resignation of the head of the CNM and also the head of the defense department general Mattis is there anyway given the backlash Mr Connell Lindsey Graham everybody in the in the day a day the state everybody saying this is outrageously dangers and stupid idea given trumps record is he like to reverse himself all other tanks gonna roll in from Turkey early US forces have already left several observation posts on the Turkish Syrian border and I just got off the phone with a Syrian Kurd who indicated that Turkey's military is massing and hi there may be a cross border incursion tomorrow morning at dawn so it looks as though the train has left the station so there are a lot of unanswered questions here a lot of unknowns is an important question though in that we need to ask ourselves why after a year of negotiating with Turkey and finally coming to an agreement on managing relations between the U. S. Turkey and the Kurds have we suddenly reversed ourselves against the advice of the department of defense and state department officials what kind of deals with trump make with air to want what everyone promised him it is it's just another example of trump's malfeasance towards international relations where he's not trustworthy where he's a radic and unpredictable or is there more to it than that is there something criminal here that we're going to find out about well there is obviously in trump's business dealings with anyone trump hotels in Turkey but there's also the other possibility that comes from a lot of sources in the intelligence committee that I've talked to both former mostly foreman but some cards and even at the former deny himself general clapper said that he thinks let ME potent is Donald trump's case officer meaning than Donald Trump is on by potent he's a Russian assets so that might explain this this is there's no question that this looks like something the potent once not what America wants this something that Putin once that Iran loans and what a side once so when you look at the F. Russia Iran and Turkey they cooperate in Syria through something called the a star on a process which was created by those three countries as an alternative to the U. N.'s mediation one of the courage to now who do they turn to for protection if the U. S. abandons them they're likely to turn to the Syrian government answer the Russian government who hold all the cards so what's trumps interests here I want to put in his interest here for a lot of unanswered questions but for the Kurds who have been on the frontline who have sacrificed eleven thousand fighters in the past year at America's be hashed confronting isis they are just spinning with confusion they don't know who their friends are they don't know what to do next hi with friends like this who needs adversaries the courage and other interested parties around the world are watching and it just casts a pall over America's reliability as an ally and as a force for good in the world well I'm no fan of the Saudi Arabians and sent me a moment been sound mind but trump just sold out the Saturdays I mean amber when they they rainy and shot down a U. S. drone trump was about to respond and the aircraft were in the air heading towards Iranian targets when he reversed himself but in doing so the signal to the Iranians that trump and the Americans are a paper tiger and then the Iranians and lost a bunch of missiles on apple cake the big petroleum processing plant in Saudi Arabia that shuts down sandy's oil supplies and then hung out to dry the Emirati is already making a deal with the Iranians and the Saudis are also about to make a deal with the Iranians says essentially trumped sell them out and by the way if you look at it in the broader context it run again end up either directly or indirectly controlling something like fifty percent of the wells are old supplies since George W. bush handed over Iraq to Iran and looks like drum sanding either Saudi Arabian the Amorites and Yemen and the Iranians will so essentially moved into Syria and into Lebanon so they could be the next regional superpower so trump showing a remarkable ability to unify our countries around the world in opposition to US policy if he is so radioactive that he's bringing the Saudis and the Iranians together the amerock teas and the Iranians that's a remarkable development there are profound questions about whether or not Donald Trump he's competent to act as commander in chief informally those questions are being asked by both democratic and Republican senators and by senior members of the US military and missile occurs in the backdrop of an impeachment inquiry which is now entering its third week so David Phillips a you saying that you not necessarily agree with me that trump is quite likely to be a traitor and the importance pocket you're saying he made just be simply incompetent it could be both we don't know hi he certainly incompetent he's proven that over and over and based on the performance in Helsinki and what we seen as of late it would seem that he's also acting in a treasonous fashion good that the house of representatives is looking at this closely hi I'm looking forward to their findings and to the process moving to the center because the US can't handle another year of Donald Trump as president we certainly can't manage another term with him in the White House you just told us that at eleven thousand Kurdish fighters died fighting ISIS on our behalf in twenty two thousand more wounded and the guy the Kurds the ones that have the seventy thousand odd ISIS prisoners locked up in these concentration camps the Europeans don't want these people coming back and we're going to abandon them and by the way if the Kurds a guiding isis and the Turkish tanks rolling in I thank god to basically have to you know go fight the Texan leave ISIS to break out of the camps and do god knows what so the group the Kurdish militias will go and confront turkeys aggression and in the process these battle hardened ISIS fighters will escape for where are they going to go for the gold rush to their Turkish friends and restaurant in the free Syrian army remember what size president Biden said at Harvard in twenty fourteen but it was Turkey that facilitated the jihadi highway from song your foot to rock the provided weapons money logistics and medical care to wounded warriors on the battlefield so the whole jihadist phenomena the rise of ISIS can be linked back to Turkey's national intelligence agency which colluded with extremists and is directly responsible for the radicalization of Muslims in Syria and in the region so then if the tanks are gonna be rolling in dough on tomorrow the the White PJ the Syrian Kurds I just have you know they basically just have light weapons they don't have a crop they don't have tanks they just gonna be slowed down thing yes they will be slaughtered we saw last December in our friend who's active and the Kurds are highly motivated to protect their people but against Turkish air power hand Harmer they really don't have a fighting chance in Africa hundreds of Kurdish fighters were killed the area in the north and east of Syria is entirely flat on light unlike the terrain west of the Euphrates so Turkey just gonna roll in with their armor and they will commit a slaughter I'd just like they did the Armenian genocide of the turn of the century and with trump as president we are we will turn a blind eye to our allies who have sacrificed so much and fought so ably on our behalf shock and discussed is the understatement what the consequences will be seventy thousand caption ISIS fighters and their families all of him a radicalized as far as I can tell being sent loose again I mean what the American people at least notice that is a really bad idea that's a really bad idea but when they're set loose they're just going to go and no hug and kiss their Turkish brethren and no joy in the Turkish free Syrian army in fighting the occurrence remember was the courage to defeat ISIS who liberated Rocka Hannah and then went about who's on the border and got rid of the last vestiges of the caliphate there are currently still eighteen thousand ISIS fighters in Syria and hundreds of millions of dollars in their accounts now we replenished by these prisoners who will rejoin the battle crisis is back and the years so we spent fighting to defeat them it will be lost time and the Americans and the others who died in that because we'll have died in vain then you have to add to that that the US presence of any one thousand troops was stopping the Iranians from linking up from Tehran through Baghdad all the way to Damascus and also there's one thousand Americans were astride the Assad's oil fields which she desperately needs so he's going to be getting it all feels Iranians will have a free traffic that's that's why Lindsey Graham said the Iranians are just going to be I have enjoyed it it's crazy Iran strategic objective here is to establish a Shiite crescent from Tehran to clone to Baghdad through northern Syria to Lebanon and beyond through that corridor they transport weapons and missiles now they're going to be able to do that without any obstruction so why is the U. S. talking tough about Iran and then turning a turning away and letting your run get away with these kinds of this kind of aggression it just is in coherent it is strategically flawed it is practically in coherent and it is morally repugnant the US has

Military officials have arrived for talks walks aimed at stopping turkey from carrying out attacks on washington's kurdish allies in syria. Now of course this is a very broad wide ranging story. That has a lot many many years of context to it. We will attempt to bring things up to speed. I asked him turkey and the u._s. Have of course been in deep disagreement however the syria conflict for months now all these talks likely to change anything at home depends which diplomatic firepower is still left on the american side in this relationship this comes on the back of excuse me last month decision of turkey taking delivery of russia's s. four hundred missile defense system now a nato country buying its missile defense system from russia is quite an act and the americans pins were absolutely furious about it and said right. We're not selling you. The one hundred thirty five jet fighters state of the art which you ordered.

The rejected children of Yazidi women raped by their I-S captors

"The ordeal of some women enslaved by the Islamic State Group didn't end with their freedom U._C._d.. Women raped by their captors have been told they can't bring their children home so they've had to leave them behind. A Middle East correspondent Adam Harvey visited an orphanage in northern Syria. That's trying to care for the youngest victims of I S. I'm sitting cross legged on flow cushions in the goals section of a Kurdish orphanage across the room sits a little. I'll go with curly black hair and Brown eyes. She's on the lap of the orphanages house mother the little go let's call her. Alya looks on as we talk. It gives me a shy smile when away at this place seems so normal caring adults curious kids a room full of bunk bunkbeds pile of tiny shoes by the door plastic tricycles whiting outside. It seems such contrast to the lives that these children did not so long ago go and the layers of misery the broad aaliyah here. Her mother was an isis slave who was captured along with thousands of other Yazidi. Women goals not far from he the Z._d.. Oils of war they were sold and raped and sold over and over again even as isis caliphate dwindled to a handful of villages along the Euphrates River <hes> the loss pace of ice territory was captured in March and the surviving. Z._D.'s and their children were freed but in April Yazidi elders Liz ruled the children of I._S. would not be allowed to leave in his eighty villages so the mothers of children like Alya born in the Calicut had an awful choice. I go home will surrender your children. Now's Muhammad is a psychologist working here as these eighty kids ride up to four years old the reason why the he is that these eighty community is not accepting them. It is very painful for the mothers to leave the children here after enroll their their mothers they come here. They put them down and then I go of course it is very painful but we always hope that one day they may come back to do they kids of there are four children of US eighty mothers in the goal section. The boys area has across a small playground. He there is sixteen sixteen children some born easy mothers and a couple of older orphans whose parents were both I._S.. Members all of them have been raised in a war zone. The speaker of the House article is took Bush. Sometimes they have problem sleeping sometimes when they see a black color they get skid. Now's Muhammed says some of the boys Have Emotional problems. Dana said has sometimes I try to beat their friends. They used to the violence. They were living in that environment now. We're doing this missed change their mentality. It's a real problem. That's why we try to deal with. The kids are cooperating with us. They see that we're trying to help them trying to help them deal with the the things they've passed through. If we say a twelve year old boy is not changing and making problems for other kids we will send him to a different center. We'll condescend to envision kind of like an Advanced Center for twelve year olds these cases who are not going to change Keyarena again. I'm laid out of the boys would assume we're going back to the goals to say goodbye but we moved to another building. We cross the road and opened the door and I'm I'm struck by a shop smell of urine and detergent. There are two rooms full of cots there twenty-one babies here ranging in age from about two to six months although it's hard to tell their exact Daij as some of the children seem small and hollow-cheeked now says they're unrecognizable now to the children who first arrived that was so malnourished when they lift I._S.. GNOME was sure if they'd In the middle of the day and all the children are in net costs is nice on of a playroom. It must be overwhelming for so few women to look after so many babies. Now's says it's difficult to find staff because of the shift work. Someone's going to stay with the children all night. A little boy cries put my hand on his chest. I and he quietens he stays back at me for a minute and then we leave more back to the Gulf section. US knows how she explains to the older two children what's happened to them. They must ask about their mother's Day Mahendran Muhammad. We tell them different stories. We say mothers who come to see them one day. We don't want to kill the hope to do something that will impact their psychology and ended innovation is actually it's a little vague with the children are actually up for adoption. Now says it's not up to her so far. None of these eighty children have gone out to Kurdish families. This is after all one of the poorest parts of the Middle East and the complications of bringing apart is eighty child into a Christian or Muslim. Family must be immense. We sit down again on the cushions. A couple of the older goals hand us. T- glasses of water and then there's a performance the little girl we met earlier.

"To be specific and for weeks. There have been predictions of the fall of the so-called Islamic seat in the Syrian town of bagels, the last holdout of the militant group was imminent well on Tuesday US-backed Syrian and critics fighters were reported to have over the last batch of territory held by the extremist group these Syrian democratic forces leading the advance said that the last militants has since pulled back to a sliver of land along the Euphrates river, south of boggles and said that clashes were continuing our correspondent ally mcbeal is there and explained why it's still confusing whether the militants have stopped fighting or not many of the fighters are still saying that the the fight is over. It was just they were saying that some of them some of the militants from Slavic state group were hidden in a very complex tunnel system from us under the fray into Iraq. And some of those emerge. And then there are sporadic clashes. There are some who remain on that sliver of land. But they are not fighting. We're told by local commanders they say they are there with their families. They don't know what to do whether to surrender whatever to stay. So there is still. It's still being decided what happens with those people. But otherwise, the fighters are assuring as again, and again that they have now taken the land. But there are clashes sporadically as I say, so what are the tactics? Now. What does what are the SDN fighters do now? Well, many of them already. We've heard that some brigades have been sent away. It is clear up operation which is going on at the moment through the camp, which I s occupied to clear up mines potential booby traps and to make it safe to return to that area. What happens next is a huge question. Because of course, while it has been celebration. There are worries about what the next phase looks like because just because they don't have territory doesn't of course mean then are dangerous Al Qaeda never had territory, but still managed to carry out attacks. But if the land has been taken back, it is nevertheless, a huge achievement because from that area, which was at one stage larger than the UK in terms of territory, they managed to execute it. Of course, they grew up they oppressed, and they were able to have the space to plan attacks abroad. So if it really has been all taken back is still a huge. It is of course, in terms of, you know, in terms of the on ground campaign, and you know, you you were mentioning there what the so called Islamic state have done with the local population in terms of attacks abroad, any word on the hostages that they were rumored to have held. We've spoken for example, too. Many people in the community very worried about those still held by the Islamic state. No. And that's why we thought.

"Out. Dr struck found that Diack leases total earnings would have equated to roughly fifteen billion dollars in modern terms fifteen billion with a b you can also see another great write up of this in history collection. There's an article by Alexander meetings that we would recommend this. This is strange because these were all net earnings to the cherry tear didn't have to pay promoters didn't have to pay, you know, a marketing team or support his I dunno entourage or shell out cash for sponsorship. He probably had it pretty good. You know, what would he have? What would he have done personally with that? And how did professor struck figure out this number on that inscription Bennett? You mentioned it has his his earnings in the currency of the time. Which is says stare, she. And that would have been thirty five million eight hundred sixty three thousand one hundred and twenty and struck figured out that for the time that would have been enough to buy grain to feed the entirety of Rome for one year. And also was about five times higher salary than any of the highest paid officials in the land and also could have paid for every single Roman soldier for a fifth of a year. And that was when Rome was at its peak in terms of its military might. Yeah. Running from Scotland all the way the far north Egypt in the south Spain in the west and the Euphrates in the east. He clearly busted his hump for this money and to compare him to let's say the highest paid governmental authorities in two months. He would earn what Rome's highest paid. Provincial governor could expect to earn in one year. And there was a great amount of risk with this. We mentioned the horse's reins being tied physically to the athlete. Win those fragile vehicles collided with something it often resulted in the death or serious injury of a chariot here because the horses kept going. That's right. A lot of trampling, and Ben we were trying to get to the conversion method, we always plug numbers into our handy dandy inflation calculator here or history. But those figures that I mentioned earlier were on our on the stone inscription this the idea of being able to bankroll the Roman army for a fifth of a year. So struck was able to extrapol- a a modern estimate based on what it would cost to pay for our military. I'm so it's obviously not a perfect one to one pretty good educated. Guess absolutely. An you know what we should do. We. Should read the actual inscription? So you're goes in the English. Translation, it begins with gas. Apple Leah's Diack lease cherry tier of the red stable elucidated Spaniard by birth age. Forty two years seven months twenty three days in the monument says he raised four horse chariots for twenty four years. So we get some valuable numbers there. We also know that given his fame. There was a snowball effect. He started turning down races. You know, what I mean it had to be worth his time. So he would race in the most high and high profile racist that had the most potential to win a large amount of money. He started in this according to the inscription in four thousand two hundred and fifty seven races. He won one thousand four hundred sixty three times and the inscription says that translates to him winning ninety two major prizes. Of these thirty two were of thirty thousand sister. She three of them were six worse teams to in races with six worse. Chariots one with a seven horse chariot he tied with because they had these different factions. Right. He was a red stable, right? And he tied a blue stable ten times green stable ninety one and the the this inscription. The thing that's invaluable about it is that it maps out his stats the same way that a baseball card back when those were big deal. Baseball car would map out the stats of your favorite your favorite baseball player. And with these have been like alongside gladiator events or those have been like two different things. Because if this had almost been like, a like, the gladiator thing might have been the main event, this might have been like a side event or were they completely separate. I'm just wondering. Whether that's a good question. There's probably a situation again where in there were large public. Events that involve this stuff, and there were definitely chariots in gladiatorial combat. That's right, right. Sometimes there could have been probably gladiator matches on chariot where they're coming at each other swing and weapons as they pass. Right. So let's let's go back for a second to the earlier comparison in the world of animation in cartoons. How exaggerated or how accurate was this depiction of chariot racing? It turns out that it's not completely off base. It's not completely cartoonish or made up because these knives on the wheels were a real thing and the cherry tears would attempt to ram their rivals into the median at the center of the track called the Spinney. And then they would come crashing into these hairpin turns. They also I thought you would find just the pure spectacle of this fascinating during. Races. It was very common for three chariots representing each faction to team up with one another to bring down a very unpopular rival or a very strong one like diabetes and bring down in. This sense means literally grind them into the dust. This violence is part of why chariot races were so incredibly popular like think about how many people love the Super Bowl. I'm sure there's an income bracket to get a ticket because those things are thousands of dollars. But millions of millions of people in this country watched the Super Bowl and pull for a team. They love regardless of, you know, their individual demographic chariot races where the same way, but before television, that's true. And you can also probably expect to see someone get really horribly injured, you know, and I deal that's less the case with modern American football or they're trying that out. And make it less of an attraction. But I still think that's largely what people that have not to taste blood. But you it's all about the stakes. Right. What's the point of like being all in with this? If there aren't like real stakes. You don't feel like these people have something to lose beyond just like Gloria being shamed. Or whatever that's a great. That's a great question. I wrote a thing of longtime ago that wasn't wasn't part of how stuff works about the social role of sports is a substitute for actual warfare. It hits all the same notes of tribalism. You know, what I mean and identify with something larger than oneself fist? This is making me miss car stuff. No. Because we have to mention these chariot races were also dangerous for the audience because the rivalry went beyond lighthearted competition. It became as high risk as the races themselves. Think of soccer hooligans. Okay. There were cherry hooligans. Buried tear hooligans one guy learned about the death of one of the best cherry tears in the red faction, and he threw himself on the funeral pyre to be burned alongside his sports idol. If that's like that's like sports as a stand in for not only warfare. But like religion. Yeah. Yeah. Good call and sixty nine AD or see the emperor of Tellus had some commoner's executed because they talk trash about the blue faction in the emperor love them. He was personally offended. So he had them put to death. And also reminds me of sort of the early days of auto racing like the LeMond. Remember, we did an episode on that where it was absolutely very dangerous just physically to be a spectator. Because if there was a fiery crash, it's flaming debris could go shooting on the crowd, potentially injuring or even killing people. There were several accounts of folks being killed those races, and such as the case for these chariot races of you know, you'd have the potential for. For people in the stands getting hit by you know, pieces of flying off of the chariots the twenty four hour Lamont. Yeah. We ever ridiculous history on that. We have something about the history of the race in the series on car stuff to if you if you'd like to learn more about the oh, my gosh, the utter utterly horrific accidents that happened in those races.

Erdogan's safe zone will be anything but for Syria's Kurds

"President rage of tie up. Aired one says he wants to form safe zones in northern Syria. So that millions of refugees from the country's bitter. Civil war can begin to return home. Paul Rogers is a professor of peace. Studies at Bradford university. Paul welcome to the program. First of all, can you explain how this would work? It's the key thing is that's the we'll ready being something like three hundred thousand the refugees in Syria returning to the country, really across the border torture. Mike Cole northwest Syria, which is being an area that took actually being controlling now. That in a sense is already that we don't know whether the three thousand three hundred thousand figures, accurate, probably isn't it. Centrally true that took us had huge numbers of refugees go into to key both from Iraq. But more particularly from Syria, maybe several million even so it does really want to see them return. But the problem is while took his century has a kind of buffer zone to the west of you. Freight is of the western pouch of northern Syria. It does not control territory twenty extent to the east, and what it really wants to do is to have some sort of zone of its own control stretching about thirty two kilometers twenty miles into Syria. But of course, the point is east of the Euphrates in the northeastern politics area, the territory's very largely controlled by codes, particularly the fight is of the socal could if people's protection units, they wipe E G, and the the Turks regards the white PG as more or less, an offshoot or very close ally of the outlawed Kurdistan. Well, because poverty, the PK K within Turkey. So what you're really seeing is what took you wants to do is extending its existing area of controlled and Swiss Syria to a belt writer loan, the northeastern Bulte dot com. Tamil problematic, their assistant, they won't do it. They'd like to do with American cooperations the American troops leave for the cousin. Extremely unhappy about that. Well, that's interesting because the Americans have said and are trumpeting. The fact they believe ISIS in the region is defeated but before the world knew of the so-called Islamic state. There was and still in many places is a brutal civil war. So how would it be possible? Then that there's there's space for people to return to well. The presumption is on the Turkish pub that the war is starting to ease up to to sort of ease away because the reality is that President Assad does have control of much of the country's being helped in that by well Circe by Iranian forces by Hezbollah by the Russians and in a sense to but in very bluntly as far as most a is consent. He is now winning. This will however unpalatable that may be many observers across the world. So the Turks now believe that at least. Some of the refugees will feel emboldened to go home people who've basic refugees from the terrible fighting rather than Solta known opponents this regime, I think that's just that thinking, but a colts. The real issue is what happens as far as the could shares of northeastern Syria can said let it be said there's very good independent evidence that in many of Nolte Syria the codes have actually rump. Things sorta technocratically pretty competently. This is why the wires on. That course, what they really fear is the with Trump wanting to get the two thousand customers troops out to Syria previously allied with these codes than because we'll be more or less left on the ledge. And that I think is a call surreal unhappiness, not just run suspects in northeast Syria, but across Kurdish communities in into in Iraq and possibly even Iran as well. Well, as you mentioned, we don't know the exact details of this, but Ankara seems to have some consensus with the US and with with the white PG. But I wonder about what the reaction would be from Moscow and the Assad regime in Damascus how open would they be to this very open? But on the other hand as far as Moscow is concerned. They do not want to incur greater expenditure in Syria. They want to maintain their influence. It's been very custody for them in economic terms. So basically, they will settle for something.

"Is ongoing. And we will remain vigilant and committed to its destruction four Americans are dead after a terror attack in Syria ISIS, claiming responsibility for that attack. Now, this comes after the president announced ISIS was defeated in Syria. And he would start pulling out troops. ABC's Elizabeth McLaughlin is at the Pentagon. And she joins us live right now. Elizabeth are experts. They're saying this is possibly retaliation for what Trump said. Good morning, April. It's really hard to say at this point on you can claim responsibility for an attack like this. It's hard to verify and it sometimes takes a while. Because it would be so easy for them to say yes that was ours that person who perpetrated that attack with ours. So there's still a little bit. It's kind of a waiting game to see how this plays out and who really committed the attack. But I think what it highlights is just how precarious the situation is in Syria in this area where this bomb blast occurred is in the city of ma'am bitch, which is up near the Turkish border in the north. And that is not where the current offensive fight against ISIS is happening. This is a city that the US had a presence for several years. We do a lot of patrols there on NBC and on foot as kind of visual deterrent against the Turks and our Kurdish partners of a lot of tension. So we've been keeping the peace. They're helping to build stability in that region. But the actual offensive battle. Happening against ISIS are further east down the middle middle Euphrates valley. So it is a bit of a shock that you would see an attack like this. And I think it does remind you that this is a very precarious security situation. Speaking of that, Elizabeth sounds like that the president is at odds to some degree with some people on the defense side of things. How's that playing out especially since he claimed that ISIS has been defeated? I mean, the president has a good point in that, you know, compared to the huge swath of territory that ISIS wants controlled at the height of the Calvin. There has been a very significant defeat. I think we've reclaimed ninety eight ninety nine percent of that territory that they once held several years ago. So he is right to say largely. Yes, ISIS has been pushed back, but completely defeated is something that you won't hear from at the Pentagon and the State Department, and that's because are still about two thousand fighters in the ongoing battle that's happening in the in that middle Euphrates river valley is very intense on they planted booby trapped there i-it's that had been planted in the ground. And so that is a that is a very difficult battle. And even though there's a lot of progress being made you have a record number of air strikes that occurred on ice in Syria in the month before president declared that we were going to withdraw. So to have an all, right. I'll outright declaration is is something that is. Put a little bit more tension in between. What the battlefield commanders would probably tell you gotta run. But what's the timeline for the pullout? Now has a change. You know, what was originally thirty days? Then it went to several months now, it looks like if you listen to secretary Mike Pompeo John Bolton, it looks like a condition based withdrawal. So now it's unclear it's still looks like the defense department is taking steps out. No troops yet. And we'll be keeping an eye on that ABC's Elizabeth McLaughlin at the Pentagon. Thank you. Batting sports. Mike reiss..

"Will states and things. And and and this is what brings up to me the elephant in the room is climate change. Now, whether you want to attribute it to manmade, which it is or a cycle or a sidebar cycles that we're going to go through anyway, which is what I see is as an astrologer. My feeling is we're going to have more of those next year. Japan is going to be in trouble. I think early February. There may be a major earthquake possibly in California. I don't know where to exactly spot exactly where an epicenter of an earthquake. But I mean this year we had the Hawaiian volcano erupted. We had nine point one earthquake in Anchorage, Alaska. Krakatoa is still erupting which is not quite but almost Basuki volcano causing see nominees in Indonesia now. Aetna just erupted the other day. I mean, we're obviously in a major earthquake cycle. The last time. You're in transit. It's Taurus where it's going now for the next six and a half years we had the dust bowl thirty. So we've got environmental disasters ahead of us. And I have said talked in my newsletter about at major solution. I mean, the Middle Eastern wars at they're very center is climate change their heating up and drying, the Tigris Euphrates Nile rivers are drying, and these and in Syria. Their wells went dry when this revolution began it just all of they can't water their crops. They have to import food. Shell climate change is the elephant in the room, and as far as changing, energy solar and wind mill are great. But they're not.

I mean, we're obviously in a major earthquake cycle. The last time you're in transit. It's Taurus where it's going now for the next six and a half years we had the dust bowl thirty. So we've got environmental disasters ahead of us. And I have said talked in my newsletter about. At major solution. I mean, the Middle Eastern wars at they're very center is climate change their heating up and drying, the Tigris Euphrates Nile rivers are drying up and these an interior their wells went dry when this revolution began it just all of they can't water their crops. They have to import food sell climate change is the elephant in the room, and as far as are changing, energy solar and wind mill are great. But they're not big enough. They're not they aren't at the point where they can do everything. My contention is that we're going to have hydrogen boron nuclear fusion, trashing, no plutonium, no uranium, no danger to all the water systems were currently nuclear fission plants has to be placed which focus. Shema, by the way, has never been fixed and Japan. I think it's gonna get soft with a nature natural event. Probably in March of this year. Do you see any major disease or calamity like that Linda, I see, you know, I really don't during this year until we get I Ronnie siklie into the fall of the year when there's a pile up of planets in Virgo, we may have an early flu epidemic or something. They had this mysterious polio like virus, it's been affecting children recently. But. Horrible. I don't really see something that is so big that you could call a pandemic, although I am a little bit worried at the in the fall of the year starting in late August and going through mid October that there might be some kind of a virus going around that is kind of unexpected it were unprepared for, but I think that here at one of the problems is eating away at the government, and and putting kerosene and lighting on all government services that has been going on our public health system, the clean water and clean air acts at both parties passed over the year that the rule of law are now being deregulate didn't say you don't have to enforce them, and there's all kinds of opposition stuff. But I think ultimately we're moving in the right direction electric cars and solar and wind. There are growing no matter what the political situation is. But I think that hydrogen boron nuclear fusion, I'm gonna give you a date when I think year when I think that's gonna be a reality. And it's going to be at least one large site that is set up to do this and connect with our electrical systems, and that's twenty twenty six all that's way out there. It is. But not so far. I mean, seventy years how George you think back on your life. How fast the past seven years gone too fast lane? Right. Too fast. You know today marks are seventeenth my seventeenth year. Doing coast to coast. How it seems like just yesterday? I mean, seventeen years my gosh. I can't believe it. You just can't believe it. We none of us can believe the age. We are not as I look back on the decades. That I remember and how fast are seventeen years younger than when I started. I don't know how that happened. But I am. I became Benjamin button or something. That's right. That's true yard. Absolutely. So when you look at this year specifically, and you know, we've talked about the economy and things like that. No, major wars are conflict. No, I think we're going to be an increase cyber war. And and I think Trump is I don't want to mention names, but China is getting is going to make some kind of an agreement this month with us about trade. Yes, they're gonna do something. But none of these things are attacking the real problems, which is corporations have outsourced jobs and factories countries where there are no environmental laws, and there no minimum wages. So they could get a super cheap labor force. Every problem that we have about people being frayed of emigrants in afraid of the others and everything is related to this. It's an old. Problem. It's been going on for a long time. And it's and this is because there is we, you know, have this. I I the corporations have gotten very powerful they by governments. They buy Alexa by everything. Linda, stay with us. We're gonna come back and take phone calls with you. If you want Linda to talk with you about you. We need your months day in year of your birth.
