3 weeks away from US election
"It's now three weeks until the US presidential election. If polls are to be believed, it's now nine thousand nine days until Joe, Biden is sworn in as the forty sixth president of the United States. However, those of us with memories stretching back for years will understand the gravity of the polls ought to be believed qualifier if polls were to be believed in two thousand sixteen President Hillary Clinton. Might now, be running for his second term and Donald Trump's candidacy dimly recalled as a surreal version. So with all due acknowledgement of the folly of tempting fate is anything much different. This time will on joined by Louis Lukens, former US diplomat who has been analyzing the polling data for the political consultancy CIGNA Global Advisors. I'm also joined in the studio by Monaco's News Editor Chris Mc Chris First of all is Biden's Paul lead meaningfully different from Hillary Clinton's. Yes and no and. The Way to answer a question like that let's look at it. This way nationally speaking if you look at the national polls yes, Joe Biden is up. If you by many poles more significantly more significantly than Clinton was at this point in time and he's also been up consistently in the polls more than Clinton was at various points in time over the last few months of, for example, now, according to the realclearpolitics average, which of does a average of all pose. He's up about ten points. That's about three points more than Clinton was at this point in time. But of course to give a brief summary for our listeners of the. Complicated system that is the US we have the electoral college and the idea of that is national polling does not matter. It matters what happens. In two. Thousand Sixteen in Theory New York and California could vote ninety percent for Joe. Biden. But if if Donald Trump managed to snap up a bunch of swing states and battleground states in the middle, he could still win the election and Biden could win the popular vote. What's happening in those battleground states that's a little bit less clear. Biden. Is Ahead. That is true. He's ahead by about five percentage points four point eight percentage points in the key battlegrounds according to real clear politics but Hillary Clinton was ahead by basically the same amount. At this time in two thousand, sixteen, the best example to point that out and this also comes to the question for for Lou about polling. The best example is Wisconsin Clinton led by six points in the polls. Ahead of time, she lost Wisconsin by one percentage point in twenty sixteen. So a five percentage points gain for for Joe. Biden, is still something that could be up in the
Quim Torra, the president of the regional government of Catalonia, has officially been disqualified from office
"Last November in the build up to a general election in Spain Kim Torah, the president of the Regional Government of Catalonia hung a banner on the building in which the government sits demanding the freedom of certain of his colleagues presently in prison or in exile, and what we are going to ask Mister Sanchez. Okay. Obviously and of repression to sit together in these table of negotiations with no conditions that means that we are going to put on. The table, these referendum, these right of Catalonia to self determination, and we want to ask Mr Scientific for the amnesty for our colleagues imprison this week. This act appears to have caused cream Torah his job Spain's Supreme Court has upheld a previous decision banning him from public office eighteen months a consequence of him disobeying an earlier court order to remove the poster which was held to violate election laws against displaying political materials in were indeed on public buildings. He was also fine. Thirty thousand euros treated to a judicial wigging for his quote stubborn blunt repeated and obstinate on quote refusal to do as he was told. Others naturally be afraid of these magistrates if the Supreme Court would decide whether to disqualify democratic and legitimate president for having defended freedom of expression justice prisoners, coalitions, and the return of the exiles these traits today have in their hands. Something much more important than my political futures wanted. Not For any banner. But for banner that defended the fundamental rights denied I mean stylish kitchen. Inevitably given the nature of populist nationalist movements of the tight which Mr Tara leads he and his supporters will regard this damnation as a ringing endorsement. The practical upshot of this decision is that Catalonia has a new acting president, vice president and Economy Minister Arrogance and the Embassy of Catalan independence have been stoked once again with potentially combustible consequences. For Listeners who've been sufficiently bewildered by recent global events that decathlon succession crisis feels like something that happened circa the battle of Salamanca as opposed to three years ago a brisk recap is possibly in order. In October, two thousand and seventeen, the procession regional government of Catalonia through a referendum on independence. This vote had already been declared illegitimate by Spain's national government ruled illegal by Spain's constitutional. Court. and was widely boycotted by pro unionists within Catalonia. What they are pushing is not democracy it's a mockery of democracy travesty of democracy. Referendum do not equal or do not equate democracy. The result was ninety percent in favor of independence but on a turnout of only forty three percent. Nevertheless on October twenty, seventh, two, thousand and Seventeen Catalonia's parliament. Independence Solutia. The COLOSIO Delta repetant parliamentary get rather sit down. Though in Punta. The worst Zimba. Spain's national government was unimpressed by this and accordingly sacked Catalonia's leaders dissolved its parliament and instituted direct rule from Madrid Catalonia's. Can Preach Demont and a few other putative architects of the Catalan nation skipped the country. Wisely, it turned out those who stayed were arrested and charged with treason several received hefty prison sentences including Catalan vice president, Auriol Carris, currently serving thirteen years. President preached amount remains in exile in Belgium from where he has managed to get elected to European Parliament as a representative of Spain Vice? President John Carey has also been elected to European Parliament although for obvious reasons is yet take his seat. Absolutely none of which has caused the idea of Catalan independence to go away at least not entirely though recent polls do suggest dwindling enthusiasm for the idea from nearly forty nine percent at the time of the referendum to perhaps forty two percent. Now, President Torre has strongly suggested that regional elections may be held early in two thousand, twenty one, which he is already framing as a choice as he puts it between democracy and freedom or repression and imposition. The, difficulty with this argument is that in the present dispensation, Catalonia is not short of either democracy or freedom. It is the richest part of what is by global standards a wealthy country. It enjoys considerable autonomy electing its own parliament flying signed flag, speaking its own language, controlling its own police and many of the public services, including schools and healthcare. The Catalan independence movement often looks and sounds less like some heroic struggle to slough off a brutal imperialist yoke. The net does populist insurrection like Brexit, another self indulgent tantrum thrown by the complacent citizens of a prosperous and orderly nation rebelling against some imaginary tyranny door is breaking. Independent United Kingdom. The difference of course is that Mr Torah his colleagues and supporters do have a case on the repression and imposition front as well. The referendum of two thousand and seventeen was a stunt which all, but begged Madrid to overreact and indeed. Did Not just in its heavy-handed persecutions of the independence movements, ringleaders. But in the ham-fisted response of the National Police and Guardia Civil, which left hundreds of pro-independence protestors injured and Spain's government looking like exactly the authoritarian overlords that Catalonia's government was accusing them of being. Versus the cycle of Grievance keeps turning in firing president. Torres Spain might be about to discover again the folly of punishing those who want to be punished.

Microsoft's 0-Day Folly
"But. At some level if you can get a lot of them, that's aggregated value. It's it's not good. Speaking of not good. Last week's patch Tuesday. When when zd net subs up We've patch Tuesday saying Microsoft says attackers have used a windows zero day to spoof file signatures and another Roku Remote Code execution in the Internet explorer scripting engine to execute code on. USERS devices. We need to take a closer look and actually those two things are the subject of the podcast that we will get to because. It's just hard to believe what a closer look reveals. But we have a hundred and twenty new flaws. In Microsoft's software fixed last week making it the third largest patch bundle of all time topped only by each of the previous two months with good and July, weighing in with one hundred, twenty, nine and one, hundred, twenty, three fixes respectively. This month's bundle carried a bit more urgency than usual. Since one of those seventeen flaws which were classified critical was zero day underactive attack at the time of the updates and one of the remaining more than one hundred flaws rated as merely important was also a zero day being exploited in the wild and publicly disclosed. So not even secret. The first of the two is titled It's e Two, thousand twenty, thirteen, eighty scripting engine memory corruption vulnerability being scripting engine problem. We should not be surprised to learn that the source of the trouble is e eleven. It was reported by a researcher at Kaspersky lab, and since it could be invoked by a militias office document, the belief is that it was probably spotted being used in fishing campaign. Microsoft. Had this to say about it. They said in a web-based attacks scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit the vulnerability through I e and then. Convince a user to view the website. An attacker could also embed an activex control marked safe initialisation in an application or Microsoft Office document that hosts the I e. rendering engine. The attacker could also take advantage of compromised websites and websites that accept or host user provided content or advertisements. These websites could contain specially crafted content that could exploit owner ability in other words. Anything, that puts content. On a website that is able to evoke I e which we know they can. Can. Can do this. So keep this in mind when we get to the other end of this podcast because. It's unbelievable what the history of this is. So that remains a threat to anybody who hasn't yet applied last Tuesday's updates to their installation of windows ten. So obviously, it would be good to do that the second zero day despite being actively exploited in the wild and publicly known is only rated as important, which seems odd since it is CV twenty, twenty, fourteen, sixty, four and labeled someone innocuously as a windows spoofing vulnerability. Okay I suppose the scale of the problem should relate to what's being spoofed bugs description will catch your attention because it allows attackers to spook the identities of other companies when signing digitally signing an executable. Now, that's the way the press covered. We will get to the details a bit later and Microsoft's words. They said these spoofed signatures could allow an attacker to bypass security features. Intended to prevent improperly signed files from being loaded. Now, all of this is a bit of misdirection because the signatures are actually not being spoofed as we'll. We'll exp explain that later. So this too is not good but. Will cover the details at the end beyond those two day those two zero days. Five of the other critical bug fixes are for Microsoft's Windows Media Foundation, the multimedia framework and infrastructure, which has been used to render digital content ever since windows seven and since windows server two, thousand eight. In these cases successful exploitation would allow an attacker to install militias south ware manipulate data, or create new accounts. And among the rest because again, we had one hundred and twenty to choose from There's also twenty, two, thousand, ten, forty, six, another nasty one in the dot net framework affecting versions two point zero through four point eight. It's a remote code execution flaw. In the way dot net handles imports. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain admin level control of the vulnerable system. This vulnerability would be exploited by uploading a specially crafted file to a web APP, which is, of course, not a heavy lift these days there's all kinds of Web APPs that are saying you know that that involve uploading user submitted stuff. This allows that to be exploited. So as always don't wait too long before

"Exploration is dangerous work. There are unknowns challenging landscapes severe weather to contend with, and that's just the tip of the iceberg at extreme locations or just factual, non metaphorical icebergs and everything gets much more difficult. Early. Expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic circles near the north and South Poles were some of the most incredible undertakings in history. Of course there were plenty of failures, but every time someone tried. It helps the people who came after. Learn a little bit more. By the early nineteen hundreds several different parties from many different places had succeeded in exploring the frigid areas and returning to tell the tale. Eight! Adele Tuck was born not too far from this brutal cold, She I opened her eyes in eighteen ninety in Alaska, not far from the city of nome, which is on the West Central Coast at one time. Alaska was known to Americans as seward's folly because Secretary of State William, seward purchased the land from Russia for seven million dollars in eighteen, sixty seven. People thought it was a terrible mistake and a waste of money, but when golden were discovered, there seward was like who's laughing now y'all seward's folly more like seward's stroke of genius that you all were super wrong about L. K. man. We get it. Anyway Alaska would still not even become an official US territory until Ada was a teenager, she was initiate one of the indigenous groups of people native to land. But growing up, she never learned the survival ways and traditions of her tribe. She was raised by missionaries people who moved to the area to set up a school in order to convert people to their religion. It's a circumstance that happened to many native Americans and as a result, many traditions were lost for generations some forever. In school eight learned to read and write English read the Bible and learned cooking and other domestic skills, the reading and writing served her well, but as you might have guessed in a story about exploration, these domestic skills would not go near as far in helping her as more traditional skills like hunting, tracking and survival might have. As a young adult! Sixteen! She married a man named Jack Black. Jiang. Yep. You heard that, right? Jack Black Jack. No. He was not a cartoon outlaw, nor was he a professional poker player. He was a dog musher hauling freight across Alaska on a sled pulled by dogs. Together! They had three kids. Sadly, only one survived a boy named Bennett. But one day, Jack Blackjack left the family high and dry. Up and left her in the middle of nowhere which in Frigid Alaska can be a pretty serious predicament. Though he was not the greatest of guys she did keep his greatest of names and earned her future fame as Ada blackjack. When Jack blackjack deserted her. She was forty miles from their home in known, and she and Ben Walked the entire way back in the bitter Alaskan cold to make matters worse than it was very sick with burke. And infection of the lungs, so ada quite a small woman carried the boy much of the way.
Cutting your finger off (almost)
"Jimmy Yomas. Cut Your finger off again. Tell us that story. I I believe if you Mike was Right. There Mike my check, my buddy, who's been helping me out? He lives in the neighborhood, and we became fast friends last year, and he's been around and he's incredible so mike and Erin were right there in errands like Johnny on the spot with first aid because he was in the military, so he was trained in all these various. Disciplines of I stayed in organization and stuff, and he's amazing and. They were both standing in be talking to each other. When they heard the saw, go off and they might just goes. Oh, boy was at bypass. was that not bypassed because he saw me like my hand this. And I go. We've been cutting this particular would a local friend of mine has been giving me hundreds of board feet. This would it's all pine, but it's all painted and Scott screws and nails in it so whenever we cut it. I usually bypass, but and I was in. It's all painted black. And you had to explain somebody who doesn't know. Yeah, yeah, as you could turn the break off, so the machine acts like a typical table so with no ability to stop if it sense skin so a and the reason we bypass, because does nails and screws and staples, and all would and I was cutting a piece that would, but I was a piece I picked up a inspected quickly and I noticed there were no nails or staples in it, so I didn't bypass, and I just want right, but Mike has been using the Sawtooth and every time. I say used the blacks up bypass because we don't have an extra break, we do now, but we did and anyway. The I was cutting in. It's funny. Andrew Kline Span. He's very very intuitive very sport of course. Said, how did it happen? They just a real simple question, which is really so stupid. It's like had it happen, and I know an Andrew would be like he could. I said I was cutting short piece of wood, and the blade was really high, so the kickback was really powerful. What really happened was the blade the salt? The piece of wood went through the blade. It was only like thirteen inch piece of wood, as it went through the blade, it hit the back of the blade in rose up because the would kind of pinch the back of the blades rose up because I had the blade at three inches, because I had just cut something really big, and I was only cutting something three quarters of so hit the back of the blade in rose up and snaps back down. And when it snapped back down, and the kickback at it pushed, the of would back out the front of the saw. And it, the piece of wood on the left side of the blade was only about an inch wide, and it ran across my fingernail, so I'm pretty convinced what happened was the would kicking back ripped my fingernail open. Now, but because of this I mean I didn't feel it. Now, but because of the trauma I don't know if it's happening. You guys now. This is the second time the me I believe. Because of the trauma of the the would getting old like you know rankling. whacking the vibrating the blade, the thing went off. There was one other time I call on video where I was cutting something in kickback I was nowhere near the played with any skin hands, and the blade kicked it break went off. So I believe it was the trauma of the Blade vibrating that caused the break to go off and not necessarily sensing skin. That's one theory. Mike and Aaron kind of. Believe that my hand was pushed into the blade. I hit. It happened so quick. I can't honestly say exactly what did happen. The Guard was down so you guys will be happy to have the guard all the way down, so my hand hit the blade like under the edge of the guard. If it did hit the blade, my other theory is my thing. L. Hit the blade, I and the technology didn't work until the cut went through my fingernail if that makes sense. So because the I, believe the pieces all there I believe it was just ripped from the the piece of wood, pushing through I don't think i. hit the blade late. That's just my gut feeling. So. They just don't little tiny pieces of wood without push sticks if I was using push. Dick's like on the outside. Usually use a push. On between the fence and the blade. And not always on the other side like Matisse's is. Consistent he talks uses those crab claw. Push sticks on both sides of the piece of wood, and that's what I often do, but I was just was a stupid momentary like cut this quick. And, that's what happened. So. You, know I I constantly. It's been ten years that I'm always very aware of stable saw safety since I got injured the first bedtime and This time it just was just one of those of this will take one second, and then Kabui, and I'm okay I. mean all I just I just have like a going to screw fingernail. Probably it'll grow out and be fine. The funny thing was is when you get injured on the table. So you know you get you get like fifteen pictures of all the friends that folly. It also cut themselves on the tables though. Check this out. So I got I got about five or six emails or pictures on Instagram. A very similar injuries through the fingernail and. And everybody said most of the people like I'm fine now grew out. You can't even tell. So. That's what I suspect will happen. So No Hospital Mike was there Mike see to train so as errands so the to discuss? I didn't even look just stuck my finger between them like fix that I. Know they were both great now. I was more. It's it's. It's definitely not to be taken lightly. About instagram because it was kind of my self defense mechanism book. I was more the same time I. Cut Myself The first time when I had to go to the hospital for three days. I was more inconvenience that had so many things to do. That now it's like a I was able to get back to work on on that day.

Georgia reopening nonessential businesses amid coronavirus
"Georgia has started to reopen. Its economy business. Owners are scared. They're caught between needing to make money and trying to stay safe journalist. Amanda Mall of the Atlantic Talk to small business owners who are doing this very hard calculation one of them is Derek Carr Nevada Gio. He manages a pub called the globe in Athens. Georgia Amanda and Eric talked to me yesterday and Derek started by telling me what it was like to shut the pub down all of the food that we ordered for a big saint. Paddy's Day we started giving it to our employees so that they could stock their fridge to weather. The storm we got rid of all perishables to our staff and then opened it up to more people in the public and like started out word of mouth and then it was like okay. We can donate what's left after we. We do this when the governor announced that some businesses in Georgia could re open including bars and restaurants. Did the globe decide to not re open? Because you don't have any stuff to reopen with meaning your food is gone. Your drinks are gone or did you decide not to reopen. Because you're concerned about people's safety or is it both well safety. You is the number one thing for sure for our guests and for our employees like it's a responsibility of being a business in general is to operate ethically but from there. Yeah like now. We're looking at like we've already taken major hits financially from all of this and that in industry that's run on razor thin margins like that's that's a lot to try to bounce back from Amanda who interviewed you for. Her story ended up titling. Her article Georgia's experiment in human sacrifice. When the governor made a decision to reopen businesses like bars like salons barbershops. Is that what it felt like? Like an experiment with human lives. Oh absolutely if feels like we are supposed to be the lab. Rats with the most unorganized version of a case study. There could be. It's been a total folly in. We're the front line that's expendable. It's is what it feels like. Amanda you talked not only to Derrick you too many business owners while you reporting this article what did they tell you business owners? I think feel like they are being pulled in two directions with no clear direction in which to go a lot of them feel like this was done sort of hastily even if they're in favor of reopening even if they see a way forward to reopen their business in a way that they consider safe. I think that people on either end of this are stressed out and worried that they're going to put their employees at risk their coworkers their customers but also that now they can reopen the. They have to for financial reasons. There's the appearance of choice in this but I think when you get down to it. People are not really being given much of a choice at all amended the other day. I talked to a man named Neil Bradley. He's in leadership at the US Chamber of Commerce and he said a lot of businesses are afraid that they're going to be sued if they reopen and then an employee or a customer gets cove in nineteen and he said that's why the Chamber and many Republican lawmakers are pushing for liability shield. So that business owners can't get sued when you were talking to business owners. Did you have people tell you? Look I'm afraid of opening up because if someone catches Cova one thousand nine and here they could turn around and sue me. Is this a legitimate concern? Yes that was mentioned to me by several business owners. It wasn't their first concern Everybody listed the safety of their employees and their co workers and the safety of their customers as the most important thing plus the financial setbacks that they've taken in the difficulty in restarting but once you get past those concerns. There are some hairstylists in particular. I've heard this from in Georgia. Who ARE GIVING THEIR CLIENTS? Release forms laugh to try and shield themselves from liability. It's not at all clear whether or not those release forms will be binding. But I think that because you're dealing with a lot of businesses who don't have a great deal of legal resources. He don't have a great deal of money to consult their attorneys on retainer people are trying to shield themselves in whatever ways they can if they feel like they do have to go back to work in order to feed their families. Did you write the title? Georgia's experiment in human sacrifice. Yes and I would imagine if you wrote it. That must seem to you what it feels like down there in Georgia absolutely. Yes I think that working class Georgians group that has largely people of color are being sacrificed to the state's economy. Largely the view is that the state probably doesn't want people to collect as much unemployment is they're collecting now so if you allow businesses to reopen a certain number of them are no longer going to be able to collect unemployment and we'll have to go back to work and it seems like that's what this order is designed to do and I don't know how you term that in any other way but human sacrifice and leslie any idea of when you will open back up that remains to be seen. We're still like we're in a historic building downtown like Proper Protocol to open safely as they say quote unquote safely now is not feasible with our sit down dining structure even if we tried put in all the protocols that we've been given like that cuts our capacity effectively in half and try and supplement that with to go sales and selling merchandise gift cards from goodwill of our community but ultimately the numbers still don't add up and we want more than anything to get back to some version of normal

What happens if Uncle Sam goes home?
"Support for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders indicates more and more. Americans are questioning the nation's role as global leader. But what happens if Washington Jettison? Us alliances and ended the Ford Presence of U. S. forces according to Thomas wrought in the Lightest Foreign Affairs magazine. That's a distinguished New York based journal a strategy of Retrenchment. He argues would among other things. Destabilize the regional security orders about Europe and Asia increase the risks of nuclear proliferation and aggravate the threat of major power conflict. The foreign affairs article is cold. The folly retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world? The author Thomas Rod is director of the Center for the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution and is affiliated as Nonresident Fellow with the Lowy Institute in Sydney. He's based in Washington. Hi there Tom Hi Tom. It's great to be Richard and join us in cine studio. Is Doug Bandow? He's a senior fellow at the Cato Institute also in Washington a former special assistant to President Ronald Reagan and this she's scholar in residence at the Center for Independent Studies. That's a Sydney based think tank that I had welcome back. I glad to be on Tom. Tom Why do you still support a foreign policy? Strategy that Yusei quote has served the US. Whoa for decades. Well I think that the you know the. Us has had a critical role to play in Europe and in Asia since the end of our two and then after the Cold War And I think it really has worked. You know it's it's created sort of stable open and prosperous regional orders. I think if the US was to withdraw from those regions those orders will be at jeopardize some. We'd see all sorts of negative effects and I think as we look at American farm policy. Be Up to distinguish between some of the conflicts in Afghanistan and elsewhere that might make sense to to to pull back from or to to to end and the more broad sort of American commitment to international security. And I'm sort of worry that we might throw the baby out with about water in this when we talk about you know how engaged the US should be in the world but your critics would say that the US has over extended itself Particularly in nations. That don't directly affect the American national interests. I think of Afghanistan Iraq Libya many people would say strategic disaster after strategic disaster. Doesn't that undermine the case for? Us Global leadership role. Well I think that we can. We can debate the merits of of each of those and certainly in Afghanistan. Icee in the piece that it's time to end the the Board Air. I think Iraq is a sort of a tricky case because there needs to be some sort of a small presence to prevent the resurgence of Isis. And but the main point of the piece actually is that the US has not overextended in Europe and Asia. So all those cases you mentioned are sort of the Greater Middle East right there nod And Not in Europe not in Asia and I think the strategy in those two regions is basically working has worked quite well and so I don't really see the evidence of an over extension in either of those two places over extension dot band. I think we're clearly overextended. The problem is it's going to get worse. You look financially at the United States. It has a trillion dollar annual deficit for the foreseeable future without a financial crisis. Those numbers will get worse of the entitlements. Is the elderly retire? The question is how one maintains globe spanning military capable of trying to contain nations along their borders essentially everywhere and also fund other commitments. I think is going to put enormous pressure on the US budget. And I think what we see today is basically an overhang of a policy. It's inertia for policy that worked well in terms of containing the Soviet Union but doesn't make much sense when it comes to Russia and a policy that in East Asia's very complicated China's strikes me as being the major problem that we face but it makes no sense to extend ourselves everywhere for primarily concerned about China. I kept isn't a US. Pullback from Asia and Europe want that be more likely to embolden regional powers like China and Russia. I don't view Russia's being particularly strong power the stage Russia doesn't dominate Europe the way the Soviet Union threatened do so Russia doesn't have anywhere close to the relative strength towards Europe that China does Europe strikes me as being a very good example of where history suggests we should change policy changing circumstances. Meena change the policy now argue frankly. Us policy's been destabilizing. American policy towards Russia in terms of NATO expansion involvement in Ukraine and Georgia has actually provoked the Russians and has created greater problems there and argue greater threats than an alternative policy. Would Have Tom Rock. Well I guess I would sort of ask Doug if you pull of NATO or reduce the US commitment to troops in the to to the countries in the Baltics Eastern Central Europe. I mean I see the presence there as having a deterrent effect. In that if we didn't have NATO Basically have Russian incursions into those countries in greater instability. I also think NATO helps to sort of try to slow the rise of authoritarian intimate some of those countries. We have big problems in Hungary and elsewhere. I think if NATO was to disband pullback those problems get worse than that. We need to be more focused. On Democracy. In those countries that are currently in the NATO Blah if as the retentions argue the US should basically withdraw from NATO or weedy ended started military. An present there that will have significant negative consequences in another part of Tom. Wright's thesis in his Foreign Affairs as I dug Bandau is that. Us retrenchment leads to nuclear proliferation that is US allies. No longer protected by uncle. Sam would be tempted to acquire nuclear weapons of their own. Why Co that danger Doug Bandow? Everything's relative here. Sometimes you live in a world with bad choices so if the question is to the United States forever defend lots of allies being willing to sacrifice American cities to defend them or should they have nuclear capabilities. Themselves it's not so clear to me. That proliferation is such a bad thing. It's not a good thing but the question is does. The United wanted to risk Los Angeles to protect Taipei and Sydney and Seoul and Tokyo should the US be prepared to risk. You know. The United States still cities and dealing with Russia when in fact already Britain and France have nuclear weapons. Perhaps the European Union are some European defense for should also have nuclear capabilities. I don't think that it's a good alternative. On the other hand the assumption undebated you know kind of unconsidered. I think that. Us should of course maintain this Really starts falling apart especially in Northeast Asia if North Korea possesses missiles capable of hitting the United States and targeting American cities doesn't make any sense for the United States to be prepared to go to war on the Korean Peninsula. What risks are at stake? What interests are at stake? I look at that and say this really is at point to argue that. Maybe we need to reconsider. Who has want Tom Rod on that note? How would you respond to Doug? Bangles question does the. Us wants to risk of Los Angeles to protect Taiwan. Yeah I just. I just think it's really. You know in the exaggerated concern. I mean this is a very real concern. At the height of the Cold War there was a problem. Extended deterrence you know. Obviously there was a number of Said's and brinksmanship but since the Cold War the US has been able to deter Russia in Europe and Saudi. Different way you know actors in Asia what I going to the brink of a global crisis and You know that would precipitate nuclear war. Hasn't we haven't seen that pattern of crises in the last three decades so The evidence would suggest that deterrence in Europe is fairly stable. I came guests. Doug band out from Kite. When Thomas Rod from Brookings? Both prominent washington-based think tanks. And we're dividing. Tom's lightest site in Foreign Affairs magazine. The folly of retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world before we turn to Australia's neighborhood in is Doug. I just want to put it back to you on this question of pulling America out of certain regions. Say the Middle East if the US pulls out of Iraq and Syria a want you just invite those suny jihadist or even the Shia militias to fill the void while they're already there. I mean the reason. Shia militias are active in Iraq is because we blew it up. I mean the notion that America promotes stability in the Middle East. I think is a fantasy the? Us helped blow up Libya now. We created the precedent that if you're dumb enough to give up your nuclear weapons and missiles we take you out who what dictator wants to follow more Merck Offi. I think the the Iraq circumstance you cannot complain about Iranian involvement there when we took out the anti Iranian dictator. So I don't see us as being able to promote relative stability in Iraq in twenty eleven when Obama Administration withdrew. Us troops that created a vacuum for those Sunni. Jihadists non-islamic stunned. I mean th this. As soon as you hottest were active. The reason we have al-Qaeda's it was created al Qaeda in Iraq which transmuted into Isis Obama pulled out following the George W Bush plan Bush could not get a status of forces agreement through when he had all the troops. So the blame Obama for this. I think is silly. And if American troops had been there there's no reason to think they would have maintained stability they would have been a target not only of Shia militias it would have been targeted Sunnis. Both sides would viewed the United States as being a problem. I told me dot band now. He he's a former Reagan. Adviser Menu reflects with I express themselves in different ways Obama trump and sands would essentially agree with Doug Bandow. How would you respond? But I think Obama. The Obama Administration came to the conclusion that it had sort of made a mistake in pulling out of Iraq in the manner in which it did because it went back in. You know to fight. Isis applied played an isis merged So I think you know. I think there's a tendency when we look at these issues you know to say the US withdraw from all of these conflicts to say. It's a Bama toward the beginning. Iraq was the wrong war. Could start it on false. Premises and Afghanistan was the good war Because it was legitimate when it began and broader than looking at the strategic consequences of both which are sort of independent of the causes right. And you know if you have a country `significant you know as Iraq in the heart of the Middle East. What goes on there has consequences and consequences for the region at a time when there is still continuing terrorism threat. I think is happening now. Let's bring it to Asia a dog. You obviously five a retrenchment of US power from not just Europe in the Middle East. I completely get that but you also support a retrenchment from East Asia question. Why China just feel the strategic vacuum left by Uncle Sam and therefore threaten the integrity of many sovereign states in the region. Doug Bandow well. China's the great challenge and the question of how to deal with China. There's no easy answer. I think the question of what America's role should be. It's clearly much more of a backup role it's not America's job to protect scarborough reef for the Filipinos me last year. Rodriguez territory announced after the Chinese Sankar ship. The US should send the navy in and start bombing. And I'm here with them. I mean it shows the danger of essentially transferring these decisions to local powers. And there's no doubt I think providing security guarantees

Oh come in clutch we need something cool. More Kyle.

He's still greed though because image on your about the new the new candidate that's coming out <hes> they added the artifices finally taken out of unearthed Arcana. They're finally putting artificial in as an actual playable class. Now class is it's own class and it's no longer it's no longer in on our thirteen. It's it's not play tested anymore. It's an actual going out in the new book. That's coming out in September. Whenever Baldur's gate comes out they actually started adding on the cell. Whenever we're on the same that we all use if yep says artificial now in their circle of spells like is that for five years now for yes okay yeah? They're they're releasing new players handbook. We're going to have a new way to build your ugly and it's going to have new rule not new rules in there but more rules that we need to know that are in the guy right now but it's easier for us. It's just it's supposed to be a smooth transition into allowing people to play the world's greatest roleplaying games something else does abby artificial artificial class and it's so it's mixing magic and technology and it looks pretty good also my box of of ballgame and he's got shipped today. That's why when I was like. Oh yes that's because they just sent me the notification so I've got thirty two Baldur's Gate Minnie's on their way. They should be your next week.

Amos as if we're unearthing new things and so that's what allows us to play test things we don't use anything out of that on our on fabled folly folly because we want to make sure it's balanced and not everything on their ballots by designate. They'll release it. People will play from late arbiters. I mean it's been a while since I got put in their earthline late getting it balanced and put into cannons lane for the on our thing arcane for awhile right <music>.

"Wave Female Fan welcome back for another episode of the fabled folly podcast owner start off this week with a quick shout out to a member of the fabled family Larkin price vice she emailed us with her thoughts on what was behind the door and more or less. She nailed it doors upon doors right. Well Morgan wants you to be looking out for for a very special magic item that we're going to be sending to you. It is a set of completely invisible near-weightless dice. These guys are incredible you. You can't see them feels like there's absolutely nothing in your hand and when you roll them no noise at all all right this week were exploring the sneaky class the rogues this is a class choice for kyle who plays narrows the hidden roads devote themselves to learning a variety of skills that will give them unrivalled leveled expertise in skill checks of course unless mirrors is trying to pick a lock rogues fall on both sides of the law in the forgotten realms with some of them being the cliche he's shaef thief or assassin while others become investigators or locksmiths and they actually help society out in battle rogues choose cunning and stealth over brute strength. This is what gives them their most powerful to the sneak attack see sneak attack is an extra set of dice that the rogue is allowed to roll when when dealing damage if the circumstances are right at first level. This damage is one d six extra which may not seem like a lot but with most weapons aerob- AEROB- can only deal one d eight or less so this could actually double the damage output now at level twenty sneak attack damage is ten ten D six. That's potentially sixty extra points of damage that can be dealt per. Turn is what makes rogues a good choice for players that want to be melee. La Characters but don't want to swing a big sword all right so last week the fable few began their final descent into the vault that they believe eve holds the treasure with evolving much bigger than anyone could have expected who knows what could be lurking or using around the corner for them. I think it's highly likely they end up finding the treasure somewhere in the dungeon but I'm not quite as certain that the law actually make it out alive which really begs the question. What's the the Treasury really worth. Yes we know the monetary value but is it worth the price of a life or multiple lives. The people have been without this money money for so long. Do they actually need it to survive. Regardless of their individual motivations are fabled few seem to think that the risk is actually worth the potential reward not just hope they at least make it out of this episode episode twenty nine snack pack attack. It's time to kick some pie cast.

"Hey people family welcome back to another stiller episode of fable folly this week in our class series explanations were talking about druids. druids are a really interesting class option see whether emulating the creatures of the natural world or calling on the forces of elemental nature druids are a reflection of all that the natural world is they'd never claimed to be master of nature though but instead are in a constant battle to keep it safe druids magic's come from nature self some spells will create blades made a fire or patches of thorns to ensnare hordes of enemies whereas others will call down storms into existence to wipe out entire armies at once a jury is most renowned skill is that of wild shape this skill allows Judah turn into an animal of their choice taking on it stat block for the time being including health points this lens toward their ability to go from being a a cockroach on a clandestine mission of reconnaissance to a T. Rex ready to annihilate its enemies in a matter of moments druids exists to keep nature in balance with itself they believe that nature balances the elements of fire water earth and air and if any of these were to gain too much power the world would be destroyed by that element think Avatar the last heir banner right now the range of abilities also also lends druids to often be lone wolves rather than adventuring with a party. If you remember our Party encountered a druid episode twenty brother where Art Thou when Dirk the Elf came to Alana's rescue kind of funny story Amos used Dirk to rescue Alani because Dirk was a drouin and Cameron's I ever Dean D. Character from a previous campaign now last week our heroes continued their fight through the necker master's lair and it seemed like they finally had everything under control at the end of episode twenty one but if we've learned anything so far that won't likely continue to be the case. It'll be interesting to see how Alani responds to all of this and if she's able to continue to you keep herself in check while she's dealing with the Necker manser. We can't forget about the cages. Alana's brother might still be in one of those. Let's find out in this week's episode talking did it's time <hes> Dixon podcast it we in the last week with a.

"Hey, welcome back say we'll fan for another episode. Fable folly this week. We're gonna focus on the difference between intelligence and wisdom, in the world of dungeons dragons. Well intelligence is the measure of a character's mental acuity in other words, how well they recall pass information and the ability reason so this is going to come in handy when characters making an arcane check to remember, the lore about something magical, or a history, check an investigation check and nature check and a religion check moans wanna character needs to remember, something that they were previously, but may not remember without the help of the dungeon master, our moments, when intelligence checks are utilize now wisdom seem similar, but it is a bit different wisdom represents a characters perceptiveness in intuition, the most common wisdom checks Amos ask our players for our perception checks. To see if they see anything happening around them players also often utilize insight checks when role playing to see if an NBC is lying to them or not other checks include medicine checks animal handling checks and survival chicks. These ability scores in these checks are often rely on the character's ability to pay attention to the world around them. There you have it. The subtle differences between intelligence and wisdom in the world of dandy. Hope that makes it a little less. Confusing. Look, we've got a really easy our character sheets. Tell us everything, and we have them right in front of us. But I think that y'all have the intelligence to remember what I just said and the wisdom to know what's happening in the story on these checks are called for. We have one more set of ability, scores together..
