"foreign policy magazine" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"Years after the European Union agreed to create a stand-alone military force, leaked documents show it may now become operational. This has now been confirmed by the EU defense commissioner as part of plans for a wider strategic compass. Well, joining me is Elizabeth brough resident fellow at the American enterprise institute and a columnist for foreign policy magazine, Elizabeth, thanks for coming on the program. What can you tell us about this EU rapid deployment capacity? Don't you love the name rapid deployment capacity? It's an EU term if there ever was one. So it's going to be a permanent EU force that will be deployed for in situations short of war. And it will it will build on previous efforts by the European Union. We know that they have had barto groups now for a number of years, unfortunately those battle groups have never been deployed, even though they were intended for precisely this sort of this sort of purpose. But the you seems to be building on that and then he wants to be seen as more than the paper Tiger, because many many countries are needed the European Commission itself have realized that it's even though the Biden administration is not going to portrays on Europe like suggesting America will pull out of nature. Europe needs to have a bit more bits more muscle when it comes to conflict. And that's what this is intended to do. But is it necessarily that NATO does already exist? It is necessary because there are conflicts that fall short of the conflicts where native would step in. We have to remember data is a defensive line and is only steps into action when one of its member states is subjected to an armed attack by a non native member states. And so if you consider the state of the world today, there are many other conflicts where it falls like this EU plan that you force would be extremely useful. The devil is as ever in the details. For example, who is going to deploy this EU force, will it be the European Commission independently of member states? Because if it's going to be a require approval of every EU member state, then you can be, you can be completely sure they will never be deployed. Absolutely. And who will fund it? I mean, given the row about funding of NATO, is there the money? That's another question. And that's a moment it looks like it's going to be funded through a combination of European EU funds and the participating members. But that is another detail. And then what will be required from the states that don't participate or that don't supply troops to this force? But I think really the most the most significant issue is who will have the right to deploy it? And who will command it? Because if you don't, if that's not, if that authority is not given to the European Union, then any new member states can hold this force hostage or for good or bad reasons, but nevertheless any EU member state can block it from deploying. And as we know, there are widely varying opinions on where the you should, when they should become involved in military affairs or in conflict around the world already today. And imagine what that would look like when if there were to be an actual opportunity for the EU to become involved, then all of a sudden, these fears in various member states would materialize or would manifest themselves through that member state or those member states blocking this. This deployable force. And you mentioned that it would be used for non wars situations. So what does that mean? So the U.S. hasn't said specifically where they could be used. But the world today has many many conflicts or many many difficult situations that can't be solved with existing tools, but they're also not wars. And currents really desperate situation at the border between Poland and Belarus is one of those. It's not a war. It's not an armed attack. So NATO can't really get involved, but it's also it's also not nothing. It's a crisis. So it was like this would be useful in the situation like that. Or if something like that in Europe, it's called European force, but it too has never been deployed because these members couldn't agree and went to deploy it. That really is a sticking point. And so if you consider if you imagine a discussions that would come up ahead of a deployment or a potential deployment like that, you can just see a member states saying, well, that's not a suitable deployment for this for so we're not going to do it this time. However, we are firmly we firmly believe in this force that will support its deployment the next time. It's meant to be operation by 2025, but a given the situation in Poland, is that just too late? Well, it is a rather leisurely tempo, but these things take time. So I'm not disputing that it would take four years or three years and one and a half months to build it up. But nevertheless, in the meantime, that you doesn't have won't be able to deploy it. And then you could say, well, why don't why doesn't the deployed data group battle groups in European gender equal force member states deploy their force, which is really extremely an extremely useful tool? And they are stuck in the same in the same dilemma that has been the EU's dilemma ever since its founding as the European coastal community which is hostage to individual member states interpretation of geopolitical crisis. And so it is a temple, but we have other tools in the meantime. Unfortunately, I don't think they will be used. Why? Why will they not be used? Because. If you consider conflict, short of war, they are very hard to interpret and they are obviously not as overwhelming as if there is an armed attack on the NATO member state. And the most EU member states are also native member states. But if there is such an attack, it's completely obvious that something needs to be done. But in situations short of that, it's not completely obvious that something needs to be done. And it's not completely obvious that it needs to be done by the European Union. And that then allows member states to say, well, we will do it this time we'll do it. Another time somebody else should do it. And that is what has played European union efforts since the beginning in addition to the question of who should who should command the force and who should be able to. Should their member states decide to use it who will decide what exactly it should do, for example, France I'm pretty sure wouldn't agree to, let's say a Polish general, commanding the force. And that is that the problem of multilateral institutions even successful was like the European Union. Elizabeth, thank you very much. Indeed, that was Elizabeth brawler. Now, still to come on the program, north stream two suffers further delays, the Parthenon marbles could be returned to Greece and we have a problem in the peripheral parts of our country, and it is obvious that we have developed and populated north and under developed and depressed or the populated south. Serbia addresses a population.

"Live from. London this globalist with me emma nelson and a very warm welcome to today's program coming up the uk's former prime minister. Tony blair. wades into the debate on the retreat from afghanistan. Look around the world and the only people really cheering this decision of the people hostile to western interests. We'll have the very latest on the chaos at kabul airport and ask whether us and british troops could be forced to extend their stay. Also i had molecules. James chambers will tell us why hong kong's teachers unions is shutting shop more than law society's holding its tongue plus a spokesperson from the swedish furniture. Giant like here. Join us to tell us about the plans to begin selling renewable energy and then a little later on the urbanism headlines from north america the day's newspapers and we explore a new horror film called censor. What is it. The stops is senator from losing control. If these imaging are supposed to walk by minds and make us teach herbal things so there was already this hypocrisy in this room. But i guess i wanted to explore within the character. Ed that's all coming up on the globalist from london before we begin to look at. What else is happening in today's news. German chancellor angela merkel says further sanctions may be imposed on russia. It uses a controversial gas pipeline against ukraine new zealand's government says the arrival of the highly infectious delta variant raises some big question about the country's pandemic response and stephan often says he will step down as sweden's prime minister and head of the social democratic party in november of two seven years in power stay tuned to monocle twenty four throughout the day for more on these stories but i it is a little over a week. Since the taliban entered kabul and took control of afghanistan well the international community has now begun its inquiries and investigations into what went wrong why. It went wrong so quickly and whether it's possible to extend evacuation deadline beyond the end of this month. Thousands of people are still at kabul airport. They're trying to flee the country most of them won't get out and even those who do have the right documentation have given up their efforts to fight their way through the crush. Well at ten am. Leonard donald columnists for foreign policy magazine and former apn f. p. bureau chief in afghanistan Lynn was on the last commercial flight out of kabul sunday but has been following the events closely from the netherlands. Get morning lyn. It's always good to have you with us. Thanks him or high. The situation at the kabul airport at the moment. We've we've seen pictures all throughout the weekend of a continued chaos and moments of lull. But genuinely a sense that this is a very place to be. I think it's probably a ring of hell to be honest with you. I have friends who've been going back and forth spending. You know most of the day twelve hours a day trying to get to the gauge. Because they have right to board documents is also a lot of people camping out just in the hope that they will be able to leave another. Don't have any documented right to board flights. It's just been terrible yesterday. That was somebody killed their. This shot side. The taliban they whipping people away from the race. The challenges to get inside Yesterday i who there are private security companies offering various packages. We'll get you from your home and take you to the military gays for ten thousand. Us dollars per person. Or if you've if you've got the cash will put on a A private chartered plane for one point. Three million dollars to take you anywhere in the world you want to go. It's become a marcus and it's just It's just been a descent into extreme distress in violence for the very many people who need to laze. And if you do have a right to bore document but you don't have one point three million dollars. What's your chances nerve. Actually getting past the security controls and getting onto an aircraft I think that it's Locking sharp elbows to be honest with you. I've heard from somebody they this morning. He managed to get through but ninety details on how and he was back and forth last week with his family including a small child I i really do. Just think that. It's it's tenacity and and shop elba's it's an awful situation. I mean we're hearing reports this morning. That a firefight broke out between unidentified gunmen. Westbound west security forces and afghan. God's at the northgate of coppola photo at today this is reports coming out from Germans germany's armed forces There's there's a fear isn't that the country is just about to deteriorate into goodness knows what when international trips and foreign media pull out. Well you know. I think that that's happening Across the country anyway. The violence and the shooting incidents being reported out of the airport really can't be a surprise at this stage. It's a hundred degrees thirty eight degrees during the day. People are very upset. Worried afraid frustrated but And so that's likely to happen but we're also hearing you know we've got to remember that we're largely seeing us ghanistan now just through kabul there isn't any Media presence outside in the provinces or in other big cities are very little. News is coming through It's all nice like the rest of the country has gone dark and it was going dot gradually over recent months anyway as the taliban took over control of districts and cities and closed down media outlets and journalists left for safety in kabul quite ironic. Now we think of it I think that The the breakdown in security is given. And i think also. There is an armed resistance. Starting to grow in various places not least the pan she a valley which is just an hour or two drive outside of kabul where A serious armed resistance. He's starting to emerge We're at a dangerous juncture for sure that region is is the last place in afghanistan isn't it which is still resisting. The taliban many suggesting that however dissatisfied afghans were with the previous government having now fled Or at least has fled There is not necessarily any desire for the taliban to to come back and as you say. There is a very large sense that as soon as the taliban tried to take control. They're very good fighters but they don't have the the the infrastructure so actually govern are they don't but we are seeing the starting to hold hands close tightly with people of the former administration like Former president i made khazai abdullah abdullah. Who was the foreign minister and also deputy ashraf ghani For a while and he was also the head of the Reconciliation council that was important participants in the so called peace talks in doha with the taliban leadership. Now we have the taliban leaders in kabul. They came i canada. Now they're in kabul and they started to talk about the makeup of the government and they're also including it as A man called Gobert in hit mattia..

"Even reading contribute contribute myself just thinking about it. And i found a couple of the videos intensely irritating to be honest so it does show. Obviously there there's a huge range of responses to this. Doesn't it julia. yeah. I think everybody has experienced small. They have their own specific tastes. In the same way that you might have specific musical tastes and they do seem to be some common things. Certainly reactions can really vary m and people do have really strong is more experiences so the best example of this was. Somebody told me that she would be on the tube. A london going to work commuting to work and she would be watching people on their makeup and she'd be so relaxed that should be almost be glued to the seat and she would miss her chief.

This is something that a few people have mentioned. It seems to be a lot rarer and we don't yet understand that but that seems to be something that we need to research. More people can also self trigger goosebumps as well without any external stimulation fascinating. Well sharon shares and julia puerto thank you both very much indeed now in afghanistan news reports overnight. Tell us that the taliban are going door to door in places kidnapping girls as young as twelve marrying them off militants and forcing them into sex slavery. The talibans extreme conservative ideology sees women as commodities as the spoils of war thousands of afghans. Awfully into the capital kabul to escape the taliban advance more than a thousand civilians have been killed in afghanistan in the past month according to the un. The taliban says they've taken control of eleven of the country's thirty four provincial capitals. There's growing concern that they could eventually threaten kabul. Now the resurgence comes in the wake of us. Forces and other foreign troops withdrawing from the country after twenty years they originally went into afghanistan to is the taliban and al-qaeda after the september the eleventh attacks on new york in two thousand and one.

"The taliban have taken control of another provincial capital in afghanistan. This happened in just the past few hours in fact when we started preparing for today's show it was nine cities they controlled now. It is ten the taliban now effectively controlled two-thirds of afghanistan pentagon press secretary. John kirby says eat is up to afghan forces. At this point no potential outcome has to be inevitable including the the the fall of kabul Which everybody seems to be reporting about. It doesn't have to be that way. It really depends on the kind of political military leadership that the afghans can muster To to to turn this around with us now is lynn. O'donnell choose a journalist in kabul and rights for foreign policy magazine. Thanks for being with us this morning. Hi debbie so what does it feel like. They're in the afghan capital to be honest with you. It feels like a city under siege in a besieged country. People are flooding into the capital from all over the all over afghanistan. They getting away from fighting and so resources. Here are really really under strain. Public parks have become camps for displaced people. The traffic is horrendous. Prices have been going up for food and fuel for some weeks now because the taliban had seized border crossings and as a landlocked country. Imports are incredibly important. Rents are going up. We're looking at inflation of ten to twenty percent already. It's 'having you know if you look at a map of afghanistan and the places where the taliban have now gained control. it's like they're circling kabul. Is there a fear that kabul might be next this very much a fear of that. The people who are coming in are fleeing as i said places where the taliban have already taken control or looking as if they will take control very soon so with the government. That really isn't doing very much or doesn't look like it's doing very much either. Politically or militarily. There is a very deep fear here in kabul debt. Kabul is going to fall that the taliban will take over the country militarily and they are clamoring to get out. So what are you hearing from the places where the taliban is already in control. It's really being quite a brutal route. To be honest. We heard rumors a couple of months ago of the sort of abuses and atrocities that were being committed by the taliban on the battlefield. And when they went into districts and i went into a couple of districts in the provinces over the last couple of months and i heard from people who had been under the taliban control even if it was for a short time women were told that they had to stay in their homes. They weren't allowed out unless they were accompanied by male relative. They had to wear a full hijab. Girls were taken out of school and girls schools closed. Women were told also that they would be rounded up and they would be married off to taliban fighters there's been terrible reports of atrocities on the battlefield of bodies being mutilated and other things. I'm not going to go into so all of this is putting a real fear amongst all of afghanistan right at the moment now. The afghan forces have just appointed a new army chief in a new head of special operations. Command is that going to make any difference. You talking about general sami sedate. He's being appointed as head of the army's special operations command. It's really difficult to know whether or not it's a timely appointment. He's a very charismatic. And an inspirational leader. He's been leading the fight in helmand in the south which has been quite a tough one whether or not at this stage appointing one man who is a good fighter and a good later to to the top of the army command in the country as the country is facing an overrun by. The taliban is really difficult to know. It could be too little too late or it could make the difference. Well thank you so much. Journalists lynn o'donnell.

"This beautiful closing same in telling quantum physicists color ravelli's bestseller the order of time where he reflects on beethoven's mississippi lameness. The song of the violin. He writes is pure beauty. Pure disparition pure joy. We are suspended holding our breath. Feeling mysteriously this must be the source of meaning that this is the source of time. It's very color ravelli. These intellectual free spirit with radical routes and a passion for poetry and literature art and science. The whole rich smorgasbord. Caller was recently named one of foreign policy. Magazine's one hundred most influential global fingers. He works in italy. France canada trying to understand the deep mystery of how gravity works at the quantum level. He writes popular opinionated columns in italian newspapers and popular sites books that have really struck a chord with fans worldwide amongst them seven brief listens on physics. And he's two new books. Are there places in the world where rules are less important than kindness and out this month. Ease helgoland color joins you an eye on science fiction from canada this week on the tesha mitchell and we started out by reflecting on the way in which this pandemic as tiny virus with a will spread is challenging the hubris faces but then we got bigger or a bigger. Thank you for having me. I love how you describe. We humans as being the species of little creatures living on marginal planet of peripheral star in one of billions of galaxies in the cosmos a senior in an essay that you've written about the astronomer copernicus and he's he's a revolutionary challenge that with and so us with was center of the universe. But somehow i it seems to me that we leave with these pre copernican prejudice that certainly at the level of the ego. At least we do. Yeah as a spacey's we still cast ourselves at the center of the universe. And i wonder if you think if we didn't do that if we sensed that we would just an arbitrary player on an arbitrary planets round by hundred million galaxies. Do you think we would position. Different eggo formerly yes. The fact that we are obviously irrelevant on the larger scale of the universe. It doesn't mean that we have no meaning. It doesn't mean that we care about is meaningless we are. We're certainly nothing right. Our son is one out of two billion stars in our galaxy is nothing in our galaxy. One out of probably a billion billion golics's in in the world just creating team prepared killing. Someone is actually candid that right in the last decades it was realized that it was many more than what we saw today. So so we're even smaller than we thought we were more inconsequential. That's something we scanned by that. But that's not the trolley deal of us that make what we care about important for us. Thinks are important for us just because what we are. I love the woman i love. Not because she's universe because she's the woman i love that and so it's for for us. We are important for ourselves. I find it to if i give me. Serenity doesn't give me anguish it sort of relaxing to know that we do our best. We share what we can love what we can. And that's and we appreciate the this life. Yes your initial university studies in the classics i think and then and then onto physics and then onto a phd in meaning to the world of of quantum theory and quantum gravity. Bit on curious to know what that classical training brought to your physicists. Self from early on because all have read do who have raised. You know that you have a great passion for poetry and literature and physics sees is part of all that fear sciences. It's a complex center price that requires the collaboration of different people in different kind of minds. And i have appreciated a scientist which are extremely technical. Or which have an extremely analytical. Mind that just going to details and split the the arguments over and over again find the little truck. I'm not particularly doing good and doing calculations or going into details. But i think that science also needs People who look the things from from a larger perspective and and see where the the two problems where the good directions and full. That's a nation which is not strictly scientific. I think it's it's it's so important to look into Into the great scientist of the past the many of them had an extraordinarily wide culture. So i think they were. The over specialization of modern education does all how help from the middle sized to go ahead. Let's just physics. Tolstoy in biology and medicine in In in other scientists. I believe that. I don't like science teaching completely focus on solving little problems. You know you have a ball. Rolling down a slope but the speed How long does he go and come on. This is so boring is interesting. What isn't is understanding. What is the structure. We're using for understanding the wall. What is a force. What does it mean to have an energy.

"In 2019 Democrats took control of the house. And Benny Thompson took control of the Homeland Security Committee. And finally, after I became chairman, we held a hearing. And it was on Lee in this hearing that members of Congress and the public get a chance to see and hear for the first time. What was going on? This hearing and other Democrat led oversight hearings got the FBI to finally acknowledge the serious threat of white supremacist terrorism. They said that quote racially motivated violent extremism was now as big a threat is Isis. These hearings didn't turn up a lot of details on exactly what the FBI was doing to deal with that threat on the ground, like the number of agents or cases or arrest So I asked the FBI agent in charge of counterterrorism for the New York Field office. Joe Denna Han. I think there's really been a surge and what we assess is racially motivated, violent extremism both here in New Jersey and across the nation. I think a lot of the profiles of the subjects where we have seen conduct successful attacks or younger males, all of them really radicalized online. Now that The velocity of those threats and successful attacks appears to be increasing. We obviously dedicate a greater number of resource is to that threat when when you talk about that? Dedicating a greater number of resource is Can you share anything in the way of numbers? Something to kind of just concretely get a sense of what that looks like, Unfortunately, can't give any specifics on that in terms of our Personnel or assets. But I can tell you that there is a tremendous emphasis put on this. We recognize that the threat is evolving and we're evolving with it. No question about it. And just to be clear. Why is it that you can't give more details on that? I'm not comfortable talking about. You know the number of agents that we have working a specific threat. So no numbers, and then there's the term itself racially motivated violent extremism. I call it that. Are we primarily talking about white supremacist terrorism? Me? No question that you know white, racially motivated extremism is a very serious problem. Well, what else fits into that? What he isn't saying is the whole point of the term. Racially motivated violent extremism is that they're not just talking about white supremacists who've been responsible for more plots and attacks in the last few years than any other kind of terrorist in our database. What happened was in 2017 and FBI document was leaked to Foreign Policy magazine about something they called black identity extremists. Theo FBI define them as anyone using violence, quote in response to perceived racism and injustice in American society in particular police brutality. It.

How Taiwan is dealing with disinformation on Social Media

"Corona virus and disinformation are two of the big challenges that have demanded the world's attention in two thousand twenty in the last days of the year. The news about vaccines for covid. Nineteen seems fairly positive. Even though that news of course needs to be fact checked as well but it may be that. Fighting mass-scale disease is in fact more feasible than fighting mass-scale disinformation but foreign policy magazine has drawn attention to some innov- it's to tackle this information in taiwan including a collaborative fact checking bought created as part of a public private partnership between the taiwanese government and the owners of taiwan's most popular messaging app. Which is called line. Indeed the authors lang and do lay say that in american tech circles. Taiwan has become a model for the fight against disinformation laying a former social media manager and speechwriter for taiwanese president side on when and do on is a national security advisor to the institute for security and technology as well as being an adjunct professor of politics at the university of san francisco. And i'm very pleased to say that. They both join us now on sunday. Extra welcome libby and doer. Thank you for her. It's great to have you. Can i start by just asking you to give us a brief outline libby of what that app line is and why this information on the line out has been a particular concern so in taiwan line is essentially the messaging app more than ninety percent of the population has the app on their phone. It integrates a news platform. It has closed chat groups You can read comics on it really like anything you can think to do on tech app you can probably find a way to do online and i suppose the this information element is particularly important because while we often focus on things like facebook and twitter. It's the private messaging where a lot of this material is distributed. Does that ring true to you. Do one yeah. Domains of new innovation of this digital accountability. Project is that it embodies or would call Distributed of dictation and do is think about the volume of information we face on a daily basis in the information environment right. The volume is so massive we cannot to professional fact checking trying to balk. Wet the rising volume office information and to me. The most innovative side of the story is that let the users have access to fact checking as well as built a database of corrected information so people can easily access such information in a very distributed manner and to me like this kind of distributed authentication is only possible through recall public and private partnership because the skill is only possible when both sides of this equation or together tech companies have tried to solve this problem but essentially they don't have the right incentive structures to do it as long as they have no pr issues and to me. I think that's the main thing. No innovation that the taiwanese government was to crack the code on. Indonesia is also another example but few governments they may talk about triple. Ps but very few governments have been able to crack the code on it. We tend to look at the shiny object right. This bought fact checking infrastructure right but behind that invasion. I think there was a lot of like we. Wholesome political leadership absolutely and there are some really interesting things to explore there. There's the technology but then also the human interaction which you've rightly pointed to do on and the fact that it's done as as a public private partnership as well so let's let's dig into all of those three aspects. Starting paps with the technology libby laying line has a fact checker and fact. Checking is a concept. I think everyone's familiar with these days. But we tend to think of a sort of separate major organizational or unit that does sort of human research and publishes its results whereas online the line fact checker is what you've called collaborative fact checking bought which sounds very impressive. What it means. What is a collaborative fact checking bought. How does the line fact check work. So the basic concept is that this line bought anyone can add it as a friend and once you have it as a friend you can copy and paste any link to a news article or perhaps a paragraph that contains information. You're not quite sure about. And you can send this message to the bought. And then once the bought receives the message. It runs the content that you sent it against the existing database of fact checked information that it has and it kind of spits backout evaluation to you about whether the information is false whether it needs more information to be sure and it also provides related links. Like if you're asking a question about a certain topic and this has been fact checked before they might show you. Oh you might be interested in this factual story right and it's doing all that using in an automated way and the reason that it's collaborative in understanding this that it it's actually pulling more than one fact checking source together. Yes so it's actually with line and then it's with some different third party fact checking platforms As well as taiwanese government so it's cooling essentially these public and private resources together and then making this single that keeps all this information in one place

"Over the long term nothing is really going to change the course of this sort of us China rivalry regardless of its a dog who's in the white house but it does seem interesting that we're Chinese perspectives on President Trump have changed significantly. I was in Beijing for example in the in 2016 and at the time a lot of Chinese observers thought that Hillary Rodham Clinton would be tough on China because of her previous statement of Human Rights, but they saw Donald Trump as someone who was more pragmatic and someone they could deal with because he had this business background and he was Adept at making deals now that that seems to have flipped Rush Doshi from The Brookings institution had an article in foreign policy magazine earlier this week saying that off Up was actually accelerating American Decline and that because of that Chinese particularly the Chinese government saw this as a positive thing in the long term, although they may realize that there was a short-term risk. I'm wondering if you could talk about a bit how perceptions Chinese perceptions of President Trump have changed in the past four years. Yeah, I think a kiss before the election year and the covid-19. I think China's still thought a transactional trump Administration a better choice that and Democratic and human rights and oriented, you know, left-wing government in the White House. But the election year movement and also covid-19 are changed the Chinese thought upon the merits of fouls relaxation. So let me give you one example, actually, you'll notice that actually in early middle of Earth January. So actually a sandal u s i v e one trip deal. It's really a landmark, you know shipment in terms of trade war will cause the suspension of escalation of the of expecting treatment reward. I think if you really look closely examining the causes of in the treaty you will find actually this is quite unfair treaty from a perspective of Chinese because actually the Trump off in the face softly, you know, 25% hotels home around three hundred seventy billion Chinese exports while trying to agreeing to log Obvious thought through the US Services sector.

Is Fast Fashion Giving Way to the Sustainable Wardrobe?

"We're talking a little bit about fast. Fashion like we said earlier and so one thing that came out which is almost like a half positive half negative so the positive thing was there was a really they've been some explosive reports coming out of China specifically on in a region called. I'm I'M GONNA I'm GonNa say this. I did take semester of Mandarin and I was not that great at it. I'm Xinjiang I think is the name of the writing and the there is an the an ethnic group. They're called the workers and they are tradition. They have occupied that space forever. unfortunately The Chinese government has come. I'm and started to use this group As you know more or less slave labor so I say I say the positive. Is that the that that this information is coming to light specifically tying back to consumer behavior so as it turns out a lot of these factories are producing garments. That are getting fed directly to us in the US and across the world Through some of these fast fashion chains And you know it's you know that this region of China actually produces eighty percent of China's cotton And in turn the United States actually import more than thirty percent of our overall apparel all from China. So you know this is something that you know the solve for this of course is less less some apparent. Obviously obviously we need some policy in fact in effect from our government to really push on the Chinese government. Stop these practices but as consumers you know. We can't again not support fast fashion. Make sure that you know the supply chain that is You know giving you your fashion mm-hmm yeah I mean it's I think it's fascinating it's heartbreaking y'All then I'm not sure if there's any doubt that oh I have so much say on on this topic. Yeah So it's not just the cutting so factories that are using flavor also Yeah it's like spitting meals else and the cotton harvest thing and There was a really Massive story that I don't think a lot in the fashion community community saw come out because it said Foreign Policy magazine and so it was just it was It was really savaging. the better cotton initiative because Better cotton initiative it really. It doesn't really much focus on forced labour focus like pesticide use and stuff but It was kind of providing a little bit of A smokescreen for brands. Like if he doesn't need to to say that the cotton that there are things from this Area is sustainable and they done everything sort of correct quote unquote But unfortunately because this is a government communist government policy. There's no way to to you. Use Normal certification systems to be sure that the continent thing was not Harvest date or fun or cut and sewn us as labor and really really as though the only solution is to stop source saying anything around this not only this entire region but any any of the Chinese so I changed that feed into it. Is that possible. Probably not I mean. China is our biggest supplier of sash. And not just fast fashion luxury fashion beverage fashion There is they're starting to be a little bit towards this the customs actually blocked shipping very small shipment. But they've locked up some fashion that they said they strongly suspected came from a slave labor. The factory in China but the whole region and basically all of China's compromised in and where SORTA letting it happen because it would be it would be a lot. I mean just tariff war is has been really devastating to fashion Brad and it's increasing prices in the United States. A lot of things totally cutting off things from China and anything that you were suspected in touch slave labor what would be knocked applauded in industry and I think whenever we get into politics. This is just the decision making process a sole long and painful and and this is why ultimately I mean at least I believe is as us as consumers and members of the society that the best I think ultimately for us is just simply To vote with our dollar Maybe we should send petitions and definitely email. The brands were like To demand action in but Political process. Just it's not as fast as we needed to be right. Yeah I think Liza Tha that point. I think everybody has a degree What they're comfortable doing in terms of advocacy or their dollars so we obviously are big proponents here of conscious consumerism? Why we created this podcast cast on but I think we we really do have to not become so jaded with a political systems that we Are Part of that. We just kind of throw our hands up and say there's not anything we can do And I think so you know wherever you feel like you can make a difference you can write to your local Representatives you can. There's all sorts of things you can do and actually that kind of leads me into the positive spin on all of this which You know I do think we're outta tipping point right now in in society where there's absolutely you could argue a cultural roll decline of fast fashion. Now I say cultural decline because I don't necessarily think You know that we have the data to say that people are stopping by stopping Buying fast fashion or or known oncle faster and we don't have that day at all but at least there's been a cultural it may be the word decline isn't the right word. Maybe maybe more like there's been an increase. We say two different way. There's been an increase of cultural awareness of fast fashion and how how it's some how it negatively impacts the environment. So that's probably the better way to phrase that you know it's it's no longer a cottage term. I I would imagine you degree without all the. Yeah absolutely I mean. Terms are going up People are looking for it on. I mean little things like pinterest released. Its tried a beginning of of two thousand eighteen and the beginning of two thousand twenty and both times they said people are looking for information on sustainable conscious. Fashion of people are googling more. I think you know my I think my website really high quality that I think. Also it's gotten so big because people are just hungry for information on this topic and so I think a lot of people are talking about it whether or not that is translated to any meaningful change on a large scale. I have not seen that yet. Exactly the jury's still out on that and we're going to have to wait to see whether or not people who I mean there's always those studies done with what people say they do and what they actually do. There's also like memes you know it's like what my mom thinks. I do all day what I actually do all day those sorts of things and so yeah. I think that it's it's something that we can remain hopeful about. Make sure that we are actively trying to make Trying to create change when we can one thing that that was interesting. kind of straddling on the cultural component and the political component is that the United Nations actually established this year The Alliance for sustainable fashion so this says the UN coming out and saying You know we are actively interested in on driving the conversation forward about sustainable fashion on a global scale And of course there's always going to be opinions about Unit United Nations. But the one thing that I think we all agree on is that it is a wonderful forum a to spark international conversations about big issues. So I for one in thrilled that they created that that group. Yeah absolutely again you know. Hello Paula politics international politics. It's a whole different discussion but you know any any action. Any effort. I I tend to agree that it's I. I just want to applaud

"Now to some Muslims calling for a boycott of this year's pilgrimage to the holy site of Mecca every year. Two million people go thing is meccas in Saudi Saudi Arabia where the government of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has been implicated in the murder of journalists in Saudi critic Jamal Ca Shoji also after pressure from human rights groups superstars singer Nicki Menaj pulled out of the Jetta World Fest Music Festival in Saudi Arabia that starts today London based journalist Akhmed tw- age has just written about the Mecca pilgrimage boycott for foreign policy magazine. We've reached him in London. Twitch told me a key moment came in April when a Muslim cleric endorse I the idea was quite a big deal considering how important hodge is like being one of the pillars of Islam for him to come out to say that and it's not exactly Muslims turning their back on their religion as more than turning their back on Saudis foreign policy as well as what did to the journalists Jamal she the boycott has gathered steam after that initial call yeah it's kind of embracing over the past few years actually but without cool it kind of almost gave credit to it because this is actually a scholar saying. As opposed to just like civil rights activists. Do you think that Saudi Arabia even cares. I mean certainly millions of pilgrim's do show up but Saudi Arabia makes money in other ways of course the whole point of Mama been set him on vision. Twenty thirty is about diversifying the G._D._p.. So at the moment almost ninety percent of their G._D._p.. Comes from oil wealth as we know but as the world is shifting away from natural resources such as oil the Saudi Arabia's coming to diversify their income and one of the ways that the aiming to do that is through increasing tourism but I think also images wrapped up into the Saudi Arabia's image in there must be some concern that this boycott will draw attention to some of these issues underscore the image issue and a real issue Saudi Arabia images of priority forest so for example Mohammed. When's Simone spent a lot of last year traveling the whole of the world the U._S. coming to the U._K.? Trying to promote themselves as this almost liberal country going through various reforms are now women to drive almost as a way to cover up some of the other activities that they've been doing throughout the Middle East or some of their internal policies as well well. I mean economic pressure on for instance South Africa. It took a sustained effort over long period of time for policy and actually the fabric of society there to change yeah I would agree with. I think it's time based thing on should the boy sustain and the income does reduce the all going to be forced to change their policies.

"All right. American Taliban was just released. So that's exciting news. Because I'm, I'm pretty sure he's totally reformed. Totally require you, you will know. Alert out. Yeah. There seems to be a little teeny bid. Now the releasing early. So really you have to release them after twenty years, because that's what he was sentenced to write and no matter how he feels after those twenty years, you still have to let him go. That's true. You don't really have to be reformed if you go through your entire your tire sentence. Right. I mean if you think you would be or are kind of the point of it. Yeah. Right. But I guess if you come out can they keep you in prison? If you get sentenced to twenty years, and you say, you know what I still pretty much terrorism. I guess I won't do it baby. But I'm still advocating for it. And then it comes to the end of the term. Can they just they just have to let you out, I think so? Because seem like he's reform and it's only seventeen years, so they could keep him in there, three years, longer feels like there are certain crimes Pat in which just don't get out of prison. Okay. It's a small subset for me. I'll give you an example, John Hinckley you go, and you shoot the president of the United States over Jodie Foster. I'm never letting you had a prison. Visiting his parents on the weekends out, right? I mean like you know that I feel like there's, there's a line there. Another one is treason against your country. If you're going in your fighting for an opposing force in a war, just I don't know. Twenty years doesn't seem appropriate to me. And the fact that he's only served seventeen is kind of big deal. And then going on going pass that it doesn't seem like he's reformed at all. And you get these stories every once in a while, and we've had people on the show in past years, who used to be terrorists, and seemingly had reformed and were now speaking out against terrorism like that there's a few people who have actually been on the show that kind of meat that profile. But that's not what John Walker. Lindh is doing here. No, I mean it appears if he's still kind of excited about the whole terrorist thing. What was it? He said in two thousand fifteen about ISIS twenty fifteen. He said that ISIS was doing a, quote spectacular job after it beheaded, a US journalist. Okay. Say in the job destruction description was, please. We win hired you will need to be held a US journalist technically I guess they were doing a spectacular job done though. It's not how I would describe it. No, I feel like maybe you have a little bit more hesitation than your praise. So you might think, okay. Well, that was twenty fifteen in may of twenty sixteen Lind continued to advocate for global jihad and to write and translate violent extremist texts. He also told a TV news producer. He will continue to spread violent extremism and violent extremist Islam upon his release. Good to me. Why are we letting this guy? Go early. That's, that's that's bizarre. I just don't understand it. I mean, it's, it's one of those things that like. This is a difficult like thing to figure out how to deal with terrorist in these situations like we're talking about the ISIS wives, right? These women they go over there. Get married off into gotta knows what happens to him for multiple years. Then they all feel of bad about it, like, you know, hey, like I, I was, I was young, I needed the money would be fun. Yeah. That'd be fun like some of them like they're like, Well, I, I was shocked to see in person them burning these people alive in these cages, because it felt so much different than when I watched the video on YouTube of them alive. He's. No. And so the, the, the conversation has been do we bring the ISIS wives back to the United States and have them tried and they wanna get trial, treason. I feel like the that most shows that I've heard on the conservative, sort of side, or people writing about it have said, no. Like these people are, are. It's a war. And they're on the other side of this war, and they should be treated like anybody else on the other side of the war, which I think, is a legitimate position. However, if you're if we have a law about treason, it's kind of, it's, it's a big deal, right? I mean, this is a constitutional principle, right? Yeah. And. It's hard to envision a more clear example of treason than going over and assisting ISIS in the middle of a war against us. Right. Like I just I mean, how do you get more clear than this and yet, we will not. We never use it. We, we've just basically we all decided, you know what that part of our history. You know what it's like it's like a Halloween three season of the witch just not part of the series. We're just going to ignore that it happened. All the other ones are Michael Myers. There's one where masked attack. Everybody's head on Halloween, and it was, you know, maybe not the best movie in the world. But that's the only one we're just gonna of just disregard. Because they know that didn't happen. That was not part of ceres this treason. What I don't even know what that is. Yeah. I mean it's Johnny Walker Lindh wasn't even church treason. Right. And that's the problem I had turned. He would not be out of prison. Now, they're you know, this is the type of thing that, that is, is they call for potentially execution. For this. This is the this is a death penalty situation and should be treated as such if you are going to go and remember, it's not just that he went and fought with the Taliban. He also was involved in the death of the first American servicemen in the Afghantistan war guy. Mike Spann who member who was killed in a prison riot and that prison. Right. It was involving this guy who's about to walk free. I mean, how is that pretty serious Justice? But it's amazing because of his frequently reported comments that he is not reformed that he wants to continue to do these things, like there's a very, very strict released policy, Pat, very, very strict. I don't know if you've heard this, but he first of all is, is going to be monitored by parole officers. Now, that's number one think about how series that is okay. He's going to be monitored by parole officer and. Number two. Yes, he could go on the internet. Yes, he can communicate with whoever he wants to. But only in English. Speaks Arabic or whatever. Only D kit, speak that online, he can only do extreme Islam jhad in English. Yes, he has to do it in English, now, if they said he had to do it in Haikou, I might say, okay, that's pretty difficult because he's going to have to continue coups. But no, this is he. It's legitimately. Are he can't do he can't speak? Any other languages has only speak English now. I mean I. I guess that's a limitation, because we're too lazy to translate what he's typing. What do we? And the fact that he's able to actually communicate with other people. I mean you know, he's on the internet Wisey on the internet at all again when he when he went to prison the internet barely worked. Okay. He's gonna get out of here. Imagine, I mean now he can go anywhere. He wants to get the nice four G, or soon, five G access wifi everywhere. And he's almost dial up days when he went when he got in prison. I don't know. It just seems like a completely crazy idea. Especially since he's not he hasn't reformed at all. And that's it's pretty clear by statements, although he, he did make an interesting statement to, to the parole board. He, he made a fourteen minutes speech that included head I realized, then what I know now about the Taliban, I would never have joined them never understood to mean anti-americanism or terrorism. But then, you know so that's what he said to get out of jail early. And then you look at everything else he is said, leading up to that it just looks like he feels the same way he did. When he went into prison. And we didn't do what we should've done at the time charging him with treason. And now we're making even worse by allowing him to to get out early. There's no there doesn't seem to be any reason for it. Why would you let this guy go after seventeen years charged as he is with pretty serious offenses like conspiracy to kill US? Nationals seems like a fairly significant crime. Yeah. I think that's a big one. Yeah. So in foreign policy magazine reported in two thousand seventeen that an investigation by the national counterterrorism center found that Lind quote continued to advocate for global jihad and to write and translate violence, violent extremists extremists texts. And but the answer though is pretty good. They said for three years, he's to be watch like a hawk the Holwell. So I mean look done three years. That's wonderful because that's the time he would normally have been in prison. Right. So, yeah, when he would have been imprisoned. They're gonna watch him carefully. And then he's gonna become he's gonna be at your local like Starbucks. He's going to be giving you Dunkin donuts as you come through. And we're supposed to be okay with that. What do you in Islam Afo, all of a sudden, is that what you're now, I am not in this, I will say, though, if I go to donuts and I order, croissant sandwich, and he hands it to me. And he says it in like Farsi I am. I'm going to report him. He's only supposed to speak in English. He'll be very upset if he says something in Farsi fat in stew for Glen this week of more coming up.

I'll give you an example, John Hinckley you go, and you shoot the president of the United States over Jodie Foster. I'm never letting you had a prison. Well, he's visiting his appearance on the weekends out, right? I mean like you know that I feel like there's, there's a line there. Another one is treason against your country. If you're going in your fighting for an opposing force in a war, you just I don't know. Twenty years doesn't seem appropriate to me. And the fact that he's only served seventeen is kind of big deal. And then going on going pass that it doesn't seem like he's reformed at all. And you get these stories every once in a while, and we've had people on the show in past years, who used to be terrorists, and seemingly had reformed. And we're now speaking out against terrorism that there's a few people who have actually been on the show that kind of meat that profile. But that's not what John Walker. Lindh is doing here. No, I mean it appears if he's still kind of excited about the whole terrorist thing. What was it? He said in twenty fifteen about ISIS twenty fifteen. He said that ISIS was doing a, quote spectacular job after it beheaded, a US journalist, okay, say the job destruction description was, please win hired you will need to be held a US journalist technically, I guess they were doing a spectacular job done though. It's not how I would. Describe it. No. I feel like maybe you had a little bit more hesitation than your praise. So you might think, okay. Well, that was twenty fifteen in may of twenty sixteen Lind continued to advocate for global jihad and to write and translate violent extremist texts. He also told a TV news producer. He will continue to spread violent extremism and violent extremist Islam upon his release. Didn't seem good to me. Why are we letting this guy go early? That's, that's that's bizarre. I just don't understand it. I mean, it's, it's one of those things that like. This is a difficult thing to figure out how to deal with a terrorist in these situations like we're talking about the ISIS wives, right? These women they go over. They get married off into ISIS. Gotta knows what happens to them for multiple years. Then they all feel bad about it. Like, you know. Hey, like I, I was I was young I needed the money would be fun. Yeah. That'd be fun like some of them like they're like, Well, I, I was shocked to see in person them burning these people alive in these cages, because it felt so much different than when I watched the video on YouTube of them alive. He's. No. And so the, the, the conversation has been do we bring the wives back to the United States and have them tried. And they want to trial treason, and I feel like the most shows that I've heard on the conservative, sort of side, or people writing about it have said, no, these people are, are a war, and they're on the other side of this war, and they should be treated like anybody else on the other side of the war, which I think, is a legitimate position. However, if you're if we have a law about treason, it's kind of, it's, it's a big deal, right? I mean, this is a constitutional principle. Yeah. And. It's hard to, to envision a more clear example of treason than going over and assisting ISIS in the middle of a war against us. Right. Like I just I mean, how do you get more clear than this and yet, we will we never use it? We, we've just basically we all decided, you know what that part of our history. You know what it's like it's like a Halloween three season of the witch just not part of the series. We're just going to ignore that it happened. All the other ones are Michael Myers. There's this one where masked attack. Everybody's head on Halloween. And it was, you know, maybe not the best movie in the world. But that's the only one we're just gonna kind of just disregard say no that one didn't happen. That was not part of the series this treason. What I don't even know what that is. Walker Lindh wasn't even church with treason. Right. And that's the problem. He would not be out of prison. Now, they're you know, this is the type of thing that, that is, is they call for potentially execution for this, this is this is a death penalty situation and should be treated as such if you are going to go and remember, it's not just that he went and fought with the Taliban. He also was involved in the death of the first American servicemen in the Afghantistan war. A guy Mike Spann who member who was killed in a prison riot and that prison. Right. It was involving this guy who's about to walk free. I mean, how is that pretty serious Justice? But it's it's amazing because of his frequently reported comments that he is not reformed that he wants to continue to do these things. There's a very, very strict released policy, Pat. Very, very strict. I don't know if you've heard this, but he first of all is, is going to be monitored by parole officers now that's number one think about how serious that is. Okay. He's going to be monitored by parole officer. And number two. Yes, he could go on the internet. Yes, he can communicate with whoever he wants to. But only in English. Speaks Arabic or whatever. Was it only kit? Speak that online, he can only do extreme Islam jhad in English. Yes, he has to do it in English, now, if they said he had to do it in Haikou might say, okay, that's pretty difficult. Because he's going to have to continue coups. But no, this is he. It's legitimately czar. He can't do he can't speak. Any other languages has only speak English now. I mean I. I guess that's a limitation, because we're too lazy to translate what he's typing. What do we? And the fact that he's able to actually communicate with other people. I mean you know, he's on the internet Wisey on the internet at all again when he when he went to prison the internet barely worked. Okay. He's gonna get out of here, imagine. I mean now he can go anywhere. He wants. He gets the nice four G or you know, soon, five G access got wifi everywhere Beck. He's almost dial up days when he went when he got in prison. I don't know. It just seems like a completely crazy idea, especially since he's not he hasn't reformed at all. And that's it's pretty clear by statements. Although he, he did make an interesting statement to, to the parole board. He, he made a fourteen minute speech that included head I realized, then what I know now about the Taliban, I would never have joined them. I never understood to mean anti-americanism or terrorism. But then, you know so that's what he said to get out of jail early. And then you look at everything else he has said leading up to that. It just looks like he feels the same way he did. When he went into prison. And we didn't do what we should've done at the time charging him with treason. And now we're making even worse by allowing him to to get out early. There's no there doesn't seem to be any reason for it. Why would you let this guy go after seventeen years charged as he is with pretty serious offenses like conspiracy to kill US nationals. That seems like a fairly significant crime. Yeah. I think that's a big one. Yeah. So in foreign policy magazine reported in two thousand seventeen that an investigation by the national counterterrorism center found that Lind quote continued to advocate for global jihad. And to write in translate violent violent extremists extremist texts. And the answer though is pretty good. They said for three years, he's going to be watch like a hawk the Holwell. So if you I mean, look three years. That's wonderful because that's the time he would normally have been in prison. Right. Like so, yeah. When he would have been imprisoned. They're gonna watch him carefully. And then he's coming. He's gonna be at your local Starbucks. He's going to be giving you Dunkin donuts as you come through. And we're supposed to be okay with that in Islam. All of a sudden, is that what you're no, I am not in this phone I will say, though, if I go to donuts and I order Chris sandwich, and he hands it to me. And he says it Farsi I am. I'm going to report him. He's only supposed to speak in English, and he'll be very upset if he says something to me in Farsi, bids, Pat in stew for Glen this week. More coming up in sixty seconds is the Glenn Beck program. Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at fifty eight years old, eight years into the disease was when all the lights went out for me. Vis. Looking for somebody with Alzheimer's? I don't see this person souls, and it takes a toll on everyone. I mean it's, it's, it's a depressing disease to watch unfold. A four year is she actually thought those of us who are carrying for her loved her. Most were her worst enemies. More and more responsibilities fellow my shoulders.

"So I think that they can afford and also the afternoon economies supposed to come up, and you know, the NATO secretary general statement that the they will stay in Afghanistan until very sincere. Fire comes with respect with respect. They're losing faith in the ability of the Ashraf Ghani government to represent an deliver I secure country. If one looks at the most recent US, this is US analysis of the security situation. The office of the special inspector general for Afganistan reconstruction concluded that the Afghan government control of territory has fallen to just fifty six percent of the country's districts. This is a record low and the Afghan national security forces casualties have risen to a record high. I you're losing the wall not really if you compare the this year March April would last March April the figure of casualties much lower on the site and each year in the past in these two months Taliban will secure advances. This is the failed to secure any advance. In fact, they have faced setbacks. So the situation is that in this. If the battlefield is the very well. Well, I don't know how you can sit there and sound so sanguine and so confident look again at the figures nearly four thousand Afghan civilians killed in twenty eight and if we look back over the last five years you've lost killed forty five thousand members of your security forces. That's partly why desertion rates are so very high. You are in no position. It seems to me. To be confident that without continued US support you can hold the line against the Taliban and the Taliban. No that was I think this year realities changing the casualty rate is lower compared to this time last year, then Talibans stamina to fight face to face against the Afghan national security forces is much lower compared to last year. It's politically that the the they are pushed to a higher level, that's because of the US Taliban talks, which naturally boosted their their political position. Battlefield is not matching their political position. Politically, your problem isn't just that the Taliban as you say have this major boost because they're now indirect negotiation communication with senior figures in the American administration. The other political reality is that your president. Ashraf Ghani a man who used to criticize till he gave you a job Ashraf Ghani is deeply unpopular amongst many Afghans. And that is a huge problem for the credibility of your government. I don't think we can claim that will I think the election is just five months away and election will prove that who is popular and who is not popular interesting. You say the election is five months the election should be in may I have gone he should be out of his term of office in may many Afghans believe that if he continues in office beyond may he has no mandate. No legitimacy. Well, we live within a constitutional system. And this court has given a verdict that he can continue until the next election produce, a new president here the words of Hekmat Khalil Kazai. I'm sure you know, well. Former deputy foreign minister, he wrote this in foreign policy magazine, recently, the government of Ashraf Ghani is alienating hidden inside line. The overwhelming majority of senior Afghan politicians because it has not included them in major policymaking decisions. It has failed to improve security and economic conditions and the security conditions have worsened that is the view of a very senior. And it has to be said a man who was loyal to the government for time official. Well, if one person's view matters, then until a few months ago, as you said, I was a stunt critic of president Ronnie, but then I realized that his doors open and he's committed to inclusivity. Well, if I may mean to sound rude, but he bought you off with a job. No, I didn't need that. That's since I needed a role to play in the peace process. And thanks. He gave me because pieces priority for me. And this is very close to my heart and to the heart of all Afghans. So I'm the main player within the whole peace process. And that's that's a that's an honor for me that he is given the principle of inclusivity. He has applied inclusivity. That's why his door open. If he's serious about inclusivity, and you've used that words many times in this interview as a means to get to a better future for Afghanistan. Why after may when his initial term runs out does he not leave power and allow a national unity administration to be created in the interim before new presidential elections. That is an interim government that could be truly inclusive. There is new word mentioned in the constitution about in government. It's extra constitution. He has to abide by the verdict of supreme court in supreme court provided interprofession of constitution. Well, here's the words again on quoting to your senior people in your country. Muhammed Honey, fat Mara former national security adviser. He thinks Ghani has no mandate to go on beyond. May. He says we must support a caretaker government which on the twenty first of may should take over because this. Current government will have a mandate that has ended and given his record. We are much better off without Ashraf Ghani. If I am free to have an opinion in his views, electoral, it's campaigning view. And I think it's a against the constitution. What's going to happen next? And I've gone to STAN the peace process if we can call it that is now in limbo. Once again, you were talking about this grand lawyer juggler sort of peace Jirga that you say is going to happen very soon in the next few days, but what can it possibly achieve when the divisions and the conflict in your country is as deep as ever. Well for peace to come. We need development in three layers internationally or international well, which is their regional coordination and cooperation which we are building. But in the most important one is the national consensus and allergic is the best and the most African is mechanism to to build that the national consensus about peace. It is supposed to provide a framework for talks with Taliban. It is also supposed to identify mechanisms of reaching to a sustainable peace in the country. Mr dogs. I nobody seems to buy it inside Afghanistan. I'm thinking of the chief executive of your own government who is supposed to be working in partnership with Ashraf Ghani Abdul Abdullah. He says he's going to boycott the lawyer Jirga he doesn't believe it is going to achieve anything. Same with presidential candidate Shahad, Becky me. He says he's. Gonna boycott it too. So wearing earth is it going to go? Jerry gays about grassroots level leaders leaders coming from districts from villages from provinces and there'd been huge struggle across the country. Everybody trying to get into to become member of the law Jirga. This is going to be the most Representative merger of our history. The biggest ledger forward history own districts, including those that are controlled by Taliban will have representation in the Jirga. They're on their way to arrive in Kabul. Already one third of the members have arrived and the rest the arriving tomorrow. The big bulk is arriving tomorrow for this ledger gays about a national consensus. It's not about top leaders consensus to Bill top leaders consensus there either mechanism such as the Reconsiliation leadership council that is supposed to bring top leaders consensus not ledger. Is national consensus. It's grassroots level. Census listening to you die. I'm tempted to think Afghanistan is a vibrant democracy in rude. Good health. But of course, the the reality is entirely different. Your country's utterly divided. Half of it is in the control of the Taliban. And if one looks at one of the other fundamentals about ghanistan, you remain one of the most corrupt countries on earth, and the Afghan public is very well aware that Ashraf Ghani for all of his promises to root out corruption as overseeing an administration, just as if not more corrupt than the ones that went before, this isn't a vibrant democracy. You're talking about we are building democracy in the middle of war a war that has continued for forty years, and we are building democracy in the middle of huge flow of aid that that that came to the country. And planned, and but we still appreciate that it the international community provided. So the presence may have a lot of questions. But I'm sure my country's future is bright. We have always remained together. United and we will remain together and United and we will find an entire solution soon. Well, of course, the country's not United. It's absurd to claim. It's united. It's deeply divided. That's why we've seen war for the last twenty years. I put it to you that the war will only come to an end when people like you explicitly say, yes, the Taliban is going to have a very significant role in the future of governance in Afghanistan. Are you prepared to say that to me now? Of course, Taliban beside their a militant force their political group. Also, and they have every right to be part of the political system in the future. So you are prepared to say here and now yes foreign forces led by the United States must leave our country. We must give the Taliban a role in the politics of the future of our country. And that is something that you will commit to. I would say that. Yes. The international forces might leave one day when the right time come with respect. That's not good enough. I mean, the the Taliban called you and your government puppet regime. They say you're being propped up by foreign forces, and they say that Afganistan and can only be truly free and find a free political future. When those forces leave well from the day, I have come to high peace council. I have established a culture of respecting each other. So no matter what language Taliban use against us and against government. I will use the language of respect to them. I consider them Afghans. And I welcome them. And I worked for that that they become part of a larger political system because that's their right? However, I would advise them that to get there. There are other ways than war in violence violence may not get them where the negotiation can get can twenty nine hundred nine be the year of peace ref gonna STAN the hopes high hopes that it might be just a short while ago. Can it be? Yes, I have already declared that the December last year in in London, I declared that and I'm still claiming that the significant beginning of the meaningful peace will start this year. We have to end the but Mohammed doubts. I I thank you very much for joining me on HARDtalk. Distribution of.

"Installations installations, in the region, I would presume that there are enough of them such that no matter what the mission is the military is going to be well positioned to do things like watch Iran, or as you were mentioning keep an eye on Syria, even if aircraft cannot fly over Syrian airspace. Yes, I think that's definitely true. One of the things that is happening as the US withdraw its forces from Syria is that these forces are actually getting. Moved to some of these bases in Iraq. And I think the president spoke about that publicly the the redeployment of some of these troops to elsewhere in Iraq. But that would another thing they're considering is keeping a small presence at a base called. I'll tons a very small remote base in south east, Syria. And from an is sort of many quite far away from the fight that the US has been doing with the Kurds in the northeast against ISIS across this sort of deconfliction line we've had with with Russia and the Syrian regime very close to the Jordanian border. And the important thing about this base is that it is on a very potentially important on in supply route Pheru through Jordan in Syria to Lebanon, and then obviously from Lebanon, they can threaten Israel. So this unlike THAAD, I'll Tump is actually geographically strategic. Typically important to Iran into so keeping a US presence. There allows allows us to keep an even closer eye, obviously serious shares a border with Iran that you know, that Iraq does not. And so this is one of the things that that were looking at potentially doing to another way to keep a close eye on. We've got about thirty seconds left here, Laura. I mean, how how what's the balance between ending the quote unquote, endless wars that President Trump talks about Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. And the maintenance of US massive US military facilities in these countries. Will we ever have an end to these endless wars for as long as millions and millions of dollars and US troops on the ground? There. Well, I it's important to remember that the US has a presence of large presence globally. We still have troops in Germany and Korea. So we actually do maintain US forces around around the world at these installations in in the Middle East in particular. It actually is kind of difficult and requires a lot of logistics and more people to take people away that are already there than it would be just leaving them. So we actually have to spend money to withdraw from Syria. So, you know, unbalance, you you have to realize that part of part of this is that the US does keep a presence over to watch our enemies and fight terrorists. And make sure we can project power.

"Twenty nineteen? I would say that I think there's a list of like twenty or thirty countries that have managed to grow their economies, reducing their greenhouse gas footprint, and the United States believe it or not until this year was actually one of those countries since you got a little tricky because of bad weather, but it does suggest that like we can make that reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and jobs. More jobs spent the growth in the economy, at least work in tandem, which is somewhat helpful. Sarah. You know, I'm actually I'm hopeful that me metoo has not died out. I'm hopeful that I'm that. We're seeing now in its own incarnations in China in India in France, and Japan. In Latin America, and I'm hopeful about increased female representation in our own congress. It's not enough. But it's remarkable. We have a first native American Representative. We have our first Muslim representatives, and we're seeing a movement towards change in that way. Slow maybe not fast enough. But it's helpful for me. I knew I just had the doom and gloom about democracy in my last answer. But twenty eighteen was the highest turnout midterm election in American history. If you take that they extrapolated, I don't know if you do the over average, it might be the highest turnout over average in any election in America. Those are I think positive signs for maybe people are becoming more politically cognizant active and care about the system in a way that hasn't been true before. So I think that represents a real hopeful note. For people who want to get involved in controlling the levers of power and confronting these big issues before us, and I do think there's a good chance at this turnout thing might be a trend.

"Thanks. But we begin this hour with a panel of journalists who join me to discuss what to expect from the news in two thousand nineteen pharaoh wild minutes, a deputy editor at foreign policy magazine. And the host of the first person podcasts Kendra p Lewis is a climate reporter for the New York Times and van are Newkirk. The second is a staff writer for the Atlantic who covers politics I started out by asking Sarah, whether the United States still has any power in international climate change negotiations as we head into twenty nineteen. I think the question is whether or not we are walking away from all of our agreements and losing that bit of soft power that idea that we have any influence at all when we're advancing ideas and saying that we don't really even agree with the with the published reports coming out of our own government. You know, you probably all remember that just the day after thanksgiving, which is a quiet news day. The Trump administration dropped a pretty dramatic report showing that we really don't even have had time. Time to be debating science anymore. And all of a sudden now, we have a government whose seems like they're walking away from it. And so people are sort of scrambling to work around us. And that's never a good thing. You know, we're in a moment with multilateral problems. It's hard to taking unilateral approach in van last October after hurricane Michael damaged parts of Florida and Georgia. You wrote a piece about how climate change has the potential to weaken democracy. What can you tell us a little bit more about your position on that?.
