Donald Trump Is Still not Conceding To The Election Results

"Donald trump is still refusing to concede after losing the us election and is insisting that he won citing baseless claims of voter fraud. He's backed up by most of his republican party and together. They're ignoring the will of the people the very foundation of democracy brian classes and associate professor in global politics at ucla and a columnist for the washington post and has written extensively on these subjects. Brian is this aku. no it's not. And the reason for that is because a coup has a very specific definition. Which is a seizure of executive power by military force. And that's not likely to happen in the united states but it is potentially going to be something where the republican party and trump are attempting to seize power after. They've lost an election which is extraordinarily dangerous for democracy. And even though it's not easy to succeed in it is. I mean there joe biden. We'll get inaugurated on january twentieth. The amount of damage is doing in faith in the democratic institutions and the democratic process of the united states enormous. And so we shouldn't take lightly i mean. Can you imagine the international reaction. If this was happening elsewhere in the world. Latin america africa. There would be a huge global outcry. Why are so many colluding with the emperor's vision of his new clothes. It has happened elsewhere in the world we had an election. a couple of years ago in the gambia in west africa in which gem lost the election and then claimed that he wanted and tried to stay in power and there was a threatened military intervention To remove him and eventually forced him out. So you're you're absolutely right. It would be treated differently and very seriously the reason why people are going along with it is twofold one is on the international stage. You have hesitancy because of geopolitics. So you know. Boris johnson would condemn this. If it was happening in west africa he won't condemn it in the us because he's worried about the blowback from the trump administration the last seventy days and on the domestic stage. The republican party is going along with it because they've made a calculation unfortunately that they think that it's best to keep the base fired up and also they don't want to alienate the base by breaking with trump before. They think he's had his time to sort of run his course so they've made a very cynical strategy Part of their game plan. And it's as i say it's doing immense damage because a majority of republicans now something between seventy-five and eighty five percent of republicans. Believe this election was stolen. Despite every piece of evidence pointing to this being one of the most well managed and well executed elections in modern american history. So at what point does it. Democratically elected leader become a dictator. It's a very good question. It's a gray area. It's it's basically win. They have taken power and failed to relinquish it in accordance with the democratic process. And so this is an instance where if trump were to stay in power illegally then yes of course We would have to stop talking about the. Us has democracy. What we have now is an attempt right. I believe that the democratic institutions of the us even though they have been battered under the last four years in our very damaged are strong enough that in this instance it won't prove successful and i think if we do actually game out the idea of him somehow trying to stay in the white house after january twentieth wouldn't the. Us shut down. There would be there would be riots. There would be violence. There would be general strikes. I mean it's it's unfathomable because even though that chunk of the republican party the hards believed that trump's somehow one or that the election was manipulated. And they're wrong about that. Eighty percent of the country knows joe biden one which is depressing. It's only eighty percent because it's quite clear that he won but it still overwhelming and therefore it's impossible to imagine Trump stained power without enormous backlash to that. And i don't think the republicans would actually go along with it once you get to that stage. I think they're indulging him because they think it's a ploy but i don't think that they would let him stay in power beyond inauguration day and i'm guessing that also republicans don't want to alienate the voter base. That may well get them to senate seats in georgia on the fifth of january. Yeah it's an interesting strategy this because of just in terms of pure it's obviously extraordinarily cynical but if we're evaluating interest from the merits of strategy as effectiveness there's a potential for blowback here right if you tell people that the elections are stolen from you in places like georgia. There's a risk that people in georgia who are republicans. Don't vote right. I mean they have. They have to get their base out and so even though they might be fired up about the the narrative that the republicans are selling them the narrative selling them as saying don't matter because they get rigged anyway which is again not true but some people believe that to be true and you wonder if on january fifth which is not a normal time for people to be voting. Usually special elections have low turnout whether the democratic base which is going to be very fired up for this could have a boost from the fact that some georgia republicans will say. Forget about it. I i don't wanna vote. Because i've heard all these conspiracy theories that my vote won't be counted anyway so you mentioned the danger for democracy an and as he also said one presumes that eventually he will have to go but how much damage can inflict before he does. I mean one area would seem to be how we view democracy in the future and would perhaps appoint to a changing of the constitution. Which really only has a couple of paragraphs on the office of the president. And i guess it relies. It's soft guidelines isn't it relies on on the good nature. The good faith of the president to to behave in a presidential way. Maybe that needs to change. Yeah i mean. I think the story Of the post trump era could be one. That's very optimistic. For democracy depending on how the senate seat elections go Because as you rightly point out what he's done is exposed. How much of american politics relies on norms and the sort of good faith that people in elected office will obey those norms. And what could happen as happened. After watergate with richard nixon is an attempt to codify right into law the norms so that they can't be up for discussion and i think this would be a very positive development that being said he can do enormous damage. He's got seventy four days in office and you know he is poisoning Republicans in particular in terms of their minds thinking about democracy. And that matters. I mean you have to have both parties believe in the legitimacy of the other party when they went elections if you want to have a democracy survive and right now that is not the case. And i you know. It's the first time in at least modern american history. That's been true so we do need to pay very close attention to what he's doing in terms those soft aspects of democracy. Now he's mark espa the defense secretary since then. There's been a run of firings and resignations at the top of the pentagon. John now has his people in place. And he's ousted those whose who would defy will. What might he try and achieve here. I mean could. He bring troops home from afghanistan in time for christmas. As long said he would thereby further destabilizing the region could he provoke conflict with iran leaving biden with a huge issue to deal with. Yeah this is one of the mysteries. I mean trump. You usually can understand trump pretty well by looking at ego narcissism personal interest financial interests. The question here is whether that explains these moves. As well so one narrative of course would be espa stood up to him on various things like deploying the military to quash protests and said. I'm not going to do that. And this is payback for him to fire him but there is some other stuff going on. That makes me wonder if there's more to this story like for example. A series of arms deals that have seemed to be arms transfers. It seemed to be concluded with various middle east Dictatorships and the question is is trump trying to do something to us foreign policy or is he trying to provide favors to countries that he may have future business interest in because his financial empire is going to be under enormous when his debt gets called in after he leaves the white house and there could be some Interest for him in trying to curry favor with some foreign governments in which towers may sprout up in the coming years. I don't know but Tinkering with national security drain a already volatile. Lame duck period is extremely dangerous. And it's not just the firings it's also the fact because he refuses to accept biden's transition biden hasn't started getting the presidential daily brief so he's not up to speed on all the threats facing and all of that means that it's less likely that biden will be as ready as possible on day one and that is something that should not be a partisan issue it should be for all americans to care about and of course he's not getting the funds that are meant to be released for the transition team either and there's a deadline for the legal challenges and as you say it's unlikely any of them will stick to to the degree that they changed results. So how and. When is this going to end well. Presumably what will happen is the certification deadline which is coming up in a couple of weeks for the various states. will come and go with certifications so that you know the new times called or email. All of the secretaries of state who are in charge of elections in in all fifty states and one hundred percent of them said that there was no fraud in their states and in fact trump's lawyers are saying the same thing in court when they're pressed right. The judges are are you. Are you alleging fraud. And they're having to say no because the lawyers actually have to inhabit reality so at some point the results will be certified and once that happens. It's a legally binding certification. That trump has lost the election so i think that the delusion will increasingly become a fringe view. It will still exist. Trump may never accept that he lost but as long as he's out of the white house on january twentieth limits the amount of damage he can do because it will be the end of his time in real power. Brian thank you very much indeed.

"gambia" Discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast

"West Africa is navy. Must've venturous region in the world. When you look at how many of these need to get high you're going to connect these countries and time. It takes even in the dry season to do. So what made me feel the most at home in these countries the local people that you meet? I mean you feel like you're on the outside until you meet people who were there and even if I'm in Chattanooga Molly like in Mali for example author case. I was up in the centre part in Chennai they have this big mud mosque. That's one of the symbols of West Africa and as soon as I got into towns not timbuktu similar. Timbuktu was a no go zone when I was last year in Geneva and Mopti was kind of the fringe of where you were safe to go do. According to the context I had and so since I got into town met a local man and he offered to take me around for the next couple of days for very reasonable rate. Had Me over. Had meals of his family showed me all around the only foreigner for forty dollars that I saw in a the some of the most incredible box I had ever seen the symbol of Mali. One of the symbols of West Africa. That's that Kinda thing makes me feel excellent getting back to Senegal and the Gambia. You're standing in the prettiest spot you saw where you standing. What are you looking at in the Gambia? I'd say the Monkey Park that flows right down to the beach. The rule you're seeing all these monkeys hopping around the branches. Uneaten out of your hand. You walk out. You're on Whitesands beautiful beach. That is one hundred yards outside of the Monkey Park. That was a cool morning for me. In Senegal I would say those kind of typical colored fishing boats are lined up with all the guys hauling them up on the shore and a huge the Moscow the divinity mosque is a big one there. That's right there with the Beach. Literally like right on the shore of the beach and the one of the moments that all over the Muslim world but that early morning call to prayer. That wakes you up at five thirty in the morning that you become accustomed to and then you go back to sleep but that early morning wakeup call. Is this something that sticks in my mind. One of my friends in Morocco owns a guest house in his deal was that he told the mosque next door he'd by the speakers because the speakers were wearing out as long as he faced the speakers in the opposite direction from his guest house so I start. He's had a guest house in. Juarez that Rocco for about eight years and says life got much better for his guests stays speakers in the opposite direction des First night in Muslim country. You know that you're not in Kansas anymore. When you wake up predawn hours depending on what? They said that they're so one last question. One thing that you should remember to pack before you go to Senegal Gambia. I'll say the yellow fever. Vaccination is something which I felt like in every single country in Africa last year. I had the pull that out on arrival and yellow vaccination record. Plo fever cards ofi regard. Okay the yellow fever card. Cy had that and that was literally inside of my passport. Every country in west Africa guy and they would have someone physically checking for that everywhere. You go and I would assume the Gambia. Senegal is going to be the case whether you're going by land or by plane to make sure you have that ready to go excellent yet. The mentioned that I spent an hour or two on the plane in Dakar. What I didn't mention was it was a night flight at this point any foggy night and they came on board. And we're fumigating the plane. It's just a very surreal experience. The whole thing felt like okay. I don't know where we are. I know I mentioned whether thing too. Is that cars the nice hub. You mentioned the UN through there. If you're going to go to a place like Cape Verde which is a really cool country to visit. There's flights that go out of two cartons at straight off the coast there. A lot of Europeans care several islands to go to I. I really enjoyed my time there. So you could use it as a hub as well. If you're visiting other countries in the region it's it's one of the main spots to jump out of from West Africa very good excellent and if you had to summarize Senegal and the Gambia in just three words three words each if you prefer what would use perfect place to start countries forwards. I'll give you the perfect introduction safe friendly very way more than three words. But that's our guest again. Brian Asher from the world hiker DOT COM and Brian. If we wanted to send people to the world hiker DOT COM to the best post you have on Senegal and the Gambia. Where should we send them? Side have travel. Itinerary is Africa.

Travel to Senegal and The Gambia

"Welcome the image traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about West Africa. I like to welcome to the show. Brian Asher from the world hiker DOT COM. Who has come to talk to us about Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa? Brian Welcome to the show. Thank you thank you for having me. I know you were surprised that we had not previously done in episode of Amateur Traveler on this region and as we were talking about before we started recording. We don't get as many pitches but also there aren't as many travelers who tend to go to west Africa East Africa. Southern Africa tend to get a little more tourists in general. Why should someone go to that region before we focus in on Senegal? Gambia I think. West Africa's really vibrance several my friends. Who have been there for years in the Peace Corps? Said it's about the People? It's about the markets it's about the color it's about the way they treat you just the life that's on the streets of West Africa. I think we hear of animals. Safaris maybe eastern Southern Africa West. Africa's is really the beating hearts of the continents with some of the most populous countries in the fascinating region with lots of smaller countries grouped. In that you can visit In the whole region there will. We've chosen to talk about Senegal and the Gambia one. Because you've been there recently and we always try and focus on someplace. That wasn't a ten years ago trip. The you've been to all the countries in Africa. Yes four fifty four nations and Africa hats off to you. Thank you and people may be wondering why we're talking about the two of them. This is one of those very odd places where one country actually completely surrounds. The exactly the Gambia's inside of Senegal. So the Gumby has no other neighbors have Senegal to the North East. The South and the West is the ocean. So it's completely involved excellent. And why should someone go to Senegal Gambia? I think Senegal and the Gambia great introduction to Africa and especially to West Africa. They're safe countries. They're countries that are kind of a soft introduction. They're not quite as hard hitting some the other countries in west Africa. Very safe to visit for me. The the weather was very nice after coming from kind of more tropical and intense heat in the Sahara for example movement way across and the people. The people are very friendly. There's not vowed kind of lively music in the streets that you can listen to all the time and there is a decent number of Europeans between but a large French population. There's quite a few Lebanese. That live there a special indy car in the capital of Senegal. And it's it's very soft welcoming place that would not intimidate so I think most people when they think of Africa that would be a great place to start and by contrast. Then what you're saying is there's some of their neighbors. We're them might be a little more. You think twice about going because of poverty terrorism Civil war or disease. Yeah those those are the only reasons I can think of not to go to some of the areas over the last ten years at least in western Africa and I think the Transportation as well kind of infrastructure with having made my way of public transportation there are a lot of Africa can be extremely slow and the Senegal Gambia. Our little breath of fresh air to be able to get around quite a bit easier than the light of the countries in the region and I'm fascinated to hear about this. I have technically been indycar but really only in the airport. And they didn't let me off the plane so I really knew very little about the area. So what kind of itinerary would you recommend? I think that Senegal be the one that you'd want to spend more time in. The car has quite a bit to see in there quite a few beaches right there. Outside of the city I stayed in a neighborhood called walk. Tom Which is nicely placed next to the African Renaissance Monument which is the largest statue and all of Africa. That kind of looks down on the whole region there and Indycar and you can take a couple of really nice day trip south from the car so if you stayed there for two three or four days I think that would be an ideal amount of time to spend their most people like I went to a place called Goree Island which is very famous for being one of the biggest places that had slaves that were coming out to the Americas and you can learn a lot but the history. They're easy to walk around. There's a ferry that goes every couple hours to get there and place it almost everyone. The cousin Senegal visits during the first couple days sides stay for the car to three days with the city and the surrounding area and then a couple of days up to St Louis which is about four hours for five hours north by bus. Okay and you could spend a day or two. They're known for its famous. Saint Louis Arch known. Not that Saint. Louis Okay the other Saint Louis in Senegal. It takes a good six to eight hours going by bus. You could take a private car if you want. Or if you're on a tour to get down to the Gambia assume that's GONNA take up half or two thirds of a day and then I'd be down in Bonn Jewel and area right below it whether it's nice speeches and a monkey parking things for two to three days so I think you could easily piece together somewhere between eight and ten days which would be kind of a nice length of a visit between Senegal Gambia. Excellent so you started us into car and you mentioned going out to the island whose name I've already forgotten it's gory island heart ee. Eileen with just one of the biggest hubs for the slave trade and they have fairies that go out every couple hours and that's definitely Come a must do if you're in Dakar. I think almost anyone I've talked to has done not visit for half day or two thirds of the day and real easy to walk arounds. Thinks about a kilometre too long. And that's locals there with colorful art kids playing soccer in slave museums. That are there that you can visit as well and so I assume there's a fourth year which is where they keep the slaves locked up. Yes and what else are we going to do the two or three days in the car? How are we gonNA spend that you mentioned the monument and there's a couple of monuments there the country it's about ninety six percent Muslim and so there's several nice mosques to visit as well in the lot of fishermen that go out and I love think West Africa? One of the images of the coastal areas. Are these colorful fishing boats that you can see like dozens of guys sliding off into the water and then sliding back up with their catch from the day and there's a lot of seafood that they bring in so these real colorfully painted. Boats is one of the images that you'll see on the coast there in Indycar and their fishing from the there than rather than from okay and is there a place you would go to see that. There is a mosque called the mosque of the divinity which had a bunch of these colorful boats right next to it and it's right there in the car about five or ten minutes from where I was staying in the neighborhood of calm and I stayed AIRBNB. There's lots of airbnb options there for budget travelers and there's all different ranges of accommodation but there are inexpensive options for those looking for him as well and I stayed with a local man there and enjoyed always like state local people to give you all flavor of what it's like will what I usually find when we're talking about. Travelling in lesser developed areas of Africa is that we're talking about not an inexpensive flight to get in relatively expensive for the distance intra country flights inside of Africa. Compare for instance or a US but then really cheap food and really cheap housing. Is that right? Yeah that's true. And so that's the Pros and cons. I always way between local transport and the flights I think the flights between the Gambian cars forty minutes so in say but I just checked in it's still upwards of one hundred forty to one hundred eighty dollars for a forty minute one slight. It's not too bad for Africa standards. It can be a lot worse a lot worse or west African flights but bus. I WanNa say it was about eighteen dollars that took me there so you just have to pick and choose. What's worth more your your time or your money. Well and that is going to be an individual choice. Yeah another thing. A lot of people like to do is there's a pink lake there several of these in the world. There's one in Mexico unless Jerry I believe and there's one about Sarah outside of Dakar. That is is another kind of one of them. Must do things on the visit. That would take you maybe about a half day and so that is really really pick. Yeah if you look at pictures online. There's one called Rainbow Mountain in Peru or I don't know how much instagram or things put filters on it and this one depending on who's pictured is it's pink. It was quite pink but sometimes the pictures make it. Look even more amazingly think depend on. The season tends to be kind of lighter darker shades of pink. That has the salt miners. That are out there. And kind of local people selling artwork in tourist items. So and so this is Lake Ripa. Yes my GRANDPA Loch rose. I think in French shore the lake what it can go by. I would say gory. Islands and Pink Lake would be to half day trips. That would make sense to have with your day or so exploring around the car so to make it two or three days for the car and it strives. You might say

Melissa RoyDreams From Her Father

"Hey now I am bureau host ric and this episode with guest. Melissa Roy was recorded back in late February while there was ample concerned in regard to cove it at that time especially in a place like China in much of the world. Business went about as normal in fact. I left Bangkok on March. Second to start an eight week trip. That would take the Berlin for two conferences West Africa for a month and then a couple of weeks in Yerevan for my annual visit. All these plans were made in vain. My to conferences and Berlin were cancelled including travel massive form. As I was on my flight after Bruin then went and met my friends. Indycar for the start of our road trip on March fifteenth on her first day Gambia. We had a team dinner where we decided to cancel the trip into leave. Banjul the following day. While I was really disappointed in just several more days this look like in the stupid decision borders inflates began to close and cancel like dominoes. I'm now in Bangkok self quarantining. And of course social distancing prior to the STREP trip I recorded and finished episodes April May and June but made sense to re record this opening introduction to be more attuned to current situations. So I'm wishing everyone safe health. I encourage you to listen to fact Bay signed and I hope for a quick end to this virus which threatens many as well as the global economy speaking to like minded people like you. This is an odd time for many of us so often we're on a trip and if not planning for the next one this passion for expiration is part of our DNA and many for many of us.

I suppose certain practitioner like listen minority faiths have had their problems of religion if these mother fuckers. There's money was really where their mouth was. They'd be looking pretty escorts at our own country right. Yeah and it would be. Yeah but that's not where they're looking and let's and don't get it to us did. It's not the cream of the country crop that has signed on to this to this little club club cowboy and by the way club. I'll get to it not my word. I'll get to that but besides the United States. I think we bullied the the UK into joining up. And then we've got you WANNA trade deal right exactly obey Ania. Austria Bosnia and Herzegovina Brazil Bulgaria Colombia Croatia Czech Republic Estonia Gambia Georgia Greece. Hungary Israel Kosovo Latvia. The religious oppression groom Spotted a theme they. They issued their principals a whole list of principles that included a commitment to and I'll quote the right to hold any faith or belief leaf or none at all and the freedom to change faith. Now those that's a good principal. Yeah I'm pretty great with that as has stated so if they hold that as their guiding light fine but here's what Pompeo had to say. Oh boy he was was like so the principles redact something. The principles didn't call out any specific countries or whatever but then bump peyot in his remarks mentioned mentioned. The targeting of religious minorities in seaview can spot a theme here Iraq Pakistan Nigeria Syria and Myanmar. All of which are heavily Muslim countries right and so and yes most of the targeting of minority religions that he's really concerned about the minority. Religion is Christianity. Of course it is maybe not me and Mar.. Maybe we. They're talking about the Ryan go there or whatever but but mostly we're talking about Christians and how terrible it is when a Christian gets Get suppressed that's the worst thing. It is the worst kind of oppression. Yeah the United States. I think we've we've talked about it. I'm not sure if we've talked about it but the US has a what's let me find this title what it's ambassador at large for for International Religious Freedom which is one Mr Sam Brownback if you recognize that name. It's because he's the architect of the Kansas the Kansas experiment he was the governor of Kansas who enacted who put his money whereas conservative mouth was and enacted the most like the perfect fully conservative trickle down economic. Oh disaster yeah bankrupt Kansas. Yeah he basically said. We're going to run the experiment. The actual conservative experiment. Yeah we're going to give tax breaks to everybody. Yeah we're GONNA and basically. He ruined up to literally bankrupted. I mean maybe not literally but but most but yeah uh as as close to bankrupt as a state could possibly be right. Did it. These shot the you know the adrenaline shot to the heart of their economy. Didn't quite take I'm not of course it ruined everything anyway. He is now the ambassador at large for International Religious Freedom for the United States of America and he said quote he said we want nations that respect religious freedom in their own country. Obviously he he's talking about. Who would who they want to join this group? He's we want nations that respect religious freedom in their own comfy country obviously act that way and then are willing to push religious freedom in the international venues so this is the activist club of countries. He's great he. They've got a club a club you know are there. Are there Komo News. There's secret handshake. Oh Yeah Oh yeah and they meet up in a tree house.

Rohingya hail UN ruling ordering Myanmar to prevent genocide

"The international court of justice heard a case brought by the African country of Gambia on behalf of an organization of Muslim majority countries that accuses Myanmar of committing genocide and let's turn to reporter Michael Sullivan who's been following the story for some time he joins us from Thailand hi Michael David so can you explain this court decision in the Hague to us and and what it means well first of all I think we need to make clear that this is in no way a final decision on the allegations of genocide that could take years but this was about provisional measures requested by Gambia basically a restraining order compelling me on Martin not to abuse the roving to remain in the on Mars were kind state and the court granted several of those measures today and said that the real hang out in the end mark are still in danger and should be a protected group so these measures will apply in theory to the couple hundred thousand Rohingya denied the most basic freedoms including freedom of movement many living what amounts to detention camps and also compelled Myanmar to preserve evidence of any alleged crimes committed during the two thousand seventeen accidents including rape murder and torture measures don't really help the roughly seven hundred and forty thousand row and go who fled the brutal Myanmar military crackdown in twenty seventeen and are now living in camps in Bangladesh and probably will be for quite sometime so this this ruling today comes just over a month after Myanmar's defective leader uncensored she went personally to the Hague to to defend our country and its actions I mean did did did that just not have any impact on on the court as they thought about what they believe is happening here it didn't seem to I mean she went and in fact I asked them to drop the case claiming that no genocide or genocidal acts had taken place she did admit that in her words a disproportionate military force may have been used against the roving bands of billions killed which basically said our government was investigating these claims and ask the court to allow that process to play out and in fact earlier this week the Myanmar government panel appointed to look into such allegations basically came to the same conclusion probable war crimes committed by the military but no genocide well I mean is name are likely to go further and comply with whatever provisional measures this court is is calling for given that Myanmar has his stone walled in the past when it's come to this yeah a good question I mean ended knowledge is the authority of the court and therefore is obliged to cooperate and the time frame is four months to comply if that doesn't happen the matter could be sent to the UN security council for further action but Myanmar has a friend there China which would probably block any effort to make Myanmar comply even if it wasn't satisfying the terms of the provisional measures that would so taking all this together I means is today's ruling just mostly symbolic or or is there more to it I think it's a little of both I mean you have to remember the international criminal court is also looking hard at several senior members of Myanmar's military for their role in what happened in twenty seventeen now you've got this case with the international court of justice in this proceeding and measures are being taken to address the plight of their hang up so that's progress yeah reporter Michael Sullivan thanks so much Michael

Why is Aung San Suu Kyi at the International Court of Justice

"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims.

A Place Where The Opioid Problem Is Upside Down

"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply all right here in the United States too much access to opioids has led to rampant addiction and overdose but we're going to hear from a part of the world facing the exact opposite problem a lack of powerful pain medications in the Gambia in West Africa. Doctors want greater access to opioids. They say they can help speed a patient's recovery. NPR's Jason Bovine traveled there recently as part of our ongoing look at treating pain and and the story does contain some uncomfortable medical details. It's mid morning at the Gambia's only teaching hospital orthopedic Surgeon Cabot Marina is talking with several nurses about two operations that they're about to start. I just bring it into the United States. It's not going to be perfect. MARINA IS A fit thirty seven year old. He's pulling on scrubs. He and his staff are looking up an X. Rays of leg bones and a light box on the wall. A curtain divides the operating room into on the left is a fourteen year old. He fractured his knee in a soccer game in a collision goalie. His parents say he almost scored on the right is a twenty nine year old man. He was in a nasty car crash a week earlier and Tibia is now protruding coming from his Shin Doctrine says operations like these pain is unavoidable hammers and saws and Gills and things like that so so afterwards old patients expected how some pain but in the Gambia managing that pain can be difficult. I the Gambia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Many medications including painkillers are in short supply and even if Moreno can get powerful opioids for his patients nurses on the general wards aren't trained to administer or monitor them. Dr Moreno spent the last thirteen years working in the United Kingdom. He says one of the striking things about returning. Home is the contrast pain management everyone I I end up. I have to leave the world when they were doing dressings because I couldn't handle the screams but you get used to it which is not great but it's what you have to do. In order to survive in the environment lived in the operating room. Dr Moreno does have access to anesthesia for the two surgeries on this day. Each patient will get a spinal block. It makes their legs. Go numb highly effective. You've at one point the fourteen year old asks. What's my leg doing up there as a nurse moves them around on the bed patient on the right is getting a steel pin driven vertically from mm-hmm is need to almost as ankle to stabilize his broken? Tibia in the UK. Both these patients would be completely asleep under general anesthesia but not here. That's partly because this country of two million people doesn't have any anesthesiologists. The only ones working in the Gambia are doctors on loan from China or Cuba so ninety eight percent of Anaesthesia Services Don byas Mahmoud El Moussa borrow heads the College of Nursing at the American International University West Africa in the Gambian capital bright across the country all had facilities well rations stick. Please where what you find the semester these specially trained nurses. I can do many of the procedures that full anesthesiologist would but there aren't many of them and they tend to work mainly in surgical operating rooms they aren't present and labor in delivery wards leaving most women here to give birth with no pain medication at all back at the surgical ward doctrine just finished resetting setting the bones and the teenagers knee he twisted the leg back into place drilled three hole through the top of the knee and secured the joint with wires sitting have to open the skin off but it still we'll be painful think you saw how. I had to bend it back into place the start and he will be sore afterwards. If I have been doing this operation in England the boy would have gotten a local anesthetic around the joint ease the pain as he wakes up but again not here the pain meds that are readily available in the Gambia are generic versions of pilot and advil an aspirin. The only narcotic clinicians sometimes dispense is a synthetic opioid called tram at all. It's considered less powerful and less addictive than opioids like oxycodone or morphine. Meanwhile the operation on the other table is continuing north comedic surgeon from China is literally hammering Rod until the twenty nine year olds leg first couple of attempts didn't go so well. I may have to back out the Pan A. and try again but doctrine is confident. It will all work. He says these pins are highly effective before they made up and walking and they usually went home. even the next day broken leg one day walking out onto the streets of London the next but only because their pain was well controlled with opioids doctrine doesn't predict such a tranquil post surgical recovery for this guy. The patient is clearly uncomfortable gripping the table as the hammering continues and he still under under the spinal anesthetic off in about six hours time then there's usually some screaming on the words and and it just takes some getting used to the patient and stuff as well in the absence of a strong pain medication. It'll be several days. Maybe a week before this man can put any weight on his leg. These patients are also likely elite experience flare ups of what Dr McCall's breakthrough pain in the UK Moreno with treat this with oral morphine but morphine isn't available on the wards here for the fourteen year old who just had knee surgery his recovery starts on a trip on a Gurney to the pediatric ward. The Children's Ward is actually sleep in another building across the street from the main hospital. There are no rails on the Gurney and he slides around as the orderly pushes him through the potholed streets. Finally he arrives at the crowded kids ward. His legs are still numb from the anesthetic during surgery his father Hassan Manual. Camara says they know his recovery will take time where they were. Just try to support him as much as possible. Kamara worries about his son being in pain but he recognizes that he just had surgery. He doesn't expect his son to be comfortable. Dr Moreno wishes he had stronger pain meds for his patients. This teen will be hurting for the the next few days but despite that Renna says this operation was a success is now he's going to straight Meghan into suffer the rest they may not have access a strong opioids but Dr Moreno and the other caregivers here have confidence that their patients will heal and eventually the pain will go away Jason Bobi.
