"ghanistan" Discussed on Creatively Christian

"From enjoying science fiction and fantasy stories into creating them also. So how can we use the explosion of superheroes as an opportunity for the gospel. Yeah so. I've got a young adult superhero series. That's out it's the christian series and So i thought about a lot about this in writing it and getting picked up by smaller and The superheroes are in my opinion our current mythology in back in the day. You had zeus and poseidon Or you had thor and loki which were norse mythology. And of course now they've been co-opted by marvel and are actually out there in the marvel universe but people would tell these stories about trying to understand how life is and how works with super with these godson goddesses and mythology stories. And really you think about it. A lot of our current day is we want to be able to make sense of the struggles. We have in world Somebody greater than ourselves and okay. Life is hard and they're these people that can have special abilities. I mean think of the first ironman movie where he goes in the dealers net. Ghanistan very still topical right now and Kind of wish implement their but who is the was the great superhero. Who's the person who but the most on the line and sacrificed most for us. And when the ultimate victory over evil in my mind as jesus christ and so Yeah i think we can definitely use superheroes and just talk through Some of that aspect and built. Show the gospel with it. I have a t shirt in well. I used to have a t shirt with. Jesus and off marvel superheroes and jesus is saying. This is how i saved the world. And i've seen that before it's cool shirt. Yeah i. I no longer fit that now but Have to buy another one. My family and i watched the every single marvel series have all the disney plus series and after a after every episode. We compare it to the bible. At least i do and My daughter tries understand But my wife is so much more into marvel than i expected her to be. She started with one vision. Said i don't care about one division. And then i didn't try to push it on her but she saw me watching and listening to the explainer videos and she got hooked into it so.

New Taliban Chancellor Bars Women From Kabul University

"Taliban and close kabul university to women. This is not surprising yesterday. Hung four people from cranes. That's not surprising what we see happening out of there. We'll continue to get worse and more roll out over the days and weeks and months ahead my question is. Are you still in touch with some of the pineapple express people. There are lot of that trend's who are working to get a lot of people out of afghanistan. They're calling every chit around town. That i know of everyone is getting asked by these people to help. And everyone's trying to help assume you're getting those calls to how. Why do you think it is for the vets to be there working sub rosa to get people out. Oh i think it's additive and we've got to at it and let's face it. Nobody is going to be more passionate about getting at risk. Afghans than the americans who worked alongside those afghans. And you know. We often use shorthand interpreter. But it's it's vast number of people hundred thousand plus maybe two hundred thousand when you add in them and their families who were interpreters logisticians frontline soldiers commandos helicopter pilots. I it's the entire gamut of afghans who stood with us and we have a deep moral obligation to get them out and yes I know dozens of veterans. Who are bombed in this It some are more successful than others. there are a wide variety of ways in which they're trying to help these people and I think it'll be additive to what the us government needs to be doing which i assume is being directed largely by the cia at this point. Because i don't see the department of defense Publicly visibly going after this. I think that To conclude. I think that lloyd austin and mark milley will be asked about that in public testimony. Today what are you doing to get people out of death. Ghanistan

"It has been twenty years yesterday. The anniversary of nine eleven which is a moment's a day in history that i think changed all of our lives instead assan. Maybe even a different trajectory in life and it was difficult to look back on twenty years and certainly it made it even more difficult with the way that we were led out of afghanistan over the last month by the biden administration. Our first question is for mark levin and sad. We'd like you dr. Sebastian gorka to be our one responder mark. What is our greatest national security threat today. joe biden. i'm not cleaning. I am not kidding. The people he is surrounded himself with a disaster. He's got a secretary of defense that helped create the isis caliphate. He's got a sector stay. Who comes out of the ivy league. Schools really doesn't know a damn thing same with his national security adviser so when you look among those people it's absolutely a disaster. The idea that we've american citizens in enemy territory the idea that we would leave afghan patriots. Who fought with us in enemy territory. The idea that twenty years after nine eleven the taliban will be stronger and bigger control the entire country about ghanistan with the backing of al-qaeda and china and russia iran sees this north korea sees is all of our enemies see this we are in dire dire

This time not afghans or american stranded out ghanistan but at local who are not yet vaccinated against cove in nineteen. I think there's about eighty million of them and therefore he announced sweeping mandates for anybody he feels he can legally require them for as president it mandates vaccines for roughly two-thirds working americans. Here's what the ap tweeted about it breaking president. Joe biden to mandate all employers with more than one hundred workers require covert. Vaccinations or weekly virus tests.

Biden Turns From Afghanistan to Domestic Agenda

"I am joined by byron york at the washington examiner and fox news. Good morning byron. How are you good morning you doing. Well thanks The lead story for me today has also the lead story in the wall street journal. The headline is biden seeks to shift focus to domestic issues after afghanistan. Exit white house plans to spend september pushing for passage of the president's agenda as he faces falling poll numbers. I personally believe that. Most americans know about the thousands of american citizens l. p. r.'s and sib holders abandoning afghanistan that they don't quite know the details but they're intently concerned with it and that it's an iceberg issue that the president is mishandling by treating it as something that will be forgotten. David drucker disagrees with me. Brian rosen wall. Very much disagrees with me. That americans are paying attention. What does byron york thing. Well i think that american's feelings about us citizens being left behind ghanistan. I think those feelings are essentially folded in to the poll. Numbers that you're seeing Biden's approval rating for his handling the situation afghanistan which are in the twenties. I mean those are nixon and watergate. Poll numbers So i do think that americans are aware of that now. A couple of things about biden changing the subject. Of course he wants to change the subject answer as well A lot of the pr. The question is what will allow the press. Go along with it if you look at politico's playbook this morning and we just tiny tiny little mention of afghanistan Much more on the biden Agenda on the other hand i was. I didn't hear the first half hour of your program Did you read. Senator blumenthal's tweets. Today did not. I tweeted the story out that he is outraged. He's a democrat but go ahead and tell people about it. Well Senator blumenthal Yesterday afternoon Posted a threat on twitter. My staff and i have worked night and day to secure the safe passage of two planes waiting in mazari sharif to take american citizens at risk afghan allies and their families to safety. My office join forces in this humanitarian mission with an incredible coalition of advocates ngos former servicemen and journalists to try to evacuate our fellow citizens in afghan allies by the way ngos former service members and journalists. Anybody missing from that list. Department and pentagon. Yeah exactly so anyway. He goes on And so this is as you point out a democratic senator which may be necessary to give this issue enough credibility for some members of the press to pay attention

You start with stagflation which can kill the presidency. You talk about the crime rates in the us. The open artery of the southern border the disaster of ghanistan on and on and on. I let me let me ask you to put that onto historic perspective. How true is the old soul that it's the economy stupid that all of these things are true. The national security Ramifications and everything else but at the end of the day a president of any party is most vulnerable when it comes to wallets and pocketbooks that That has historically been the leading issue but of course at times other crises arise i in the eighteen sixty election which lincoln one. It wasn't the economy. Of course there was a terrible threat to national unity in one thousand. Nine hundred forty president roosevelt's third term. He ran even with his opponent. Wendell we'll be economy. But he led on foreign policy. But absolutely overriding concern of americans was how to stay out of war but helped the democracy. So we're app four british and canadians and and And roosevelt had you know all all each short of war and great arsenal of democracy and so on and that was a policy that people approved.

Fighting Continues in Panjshir Valley as Anti-Taliban Resistance Vows to Hold Out

"The taliban have declared victory. In the eastern provinces of punchier the part of afghanistan to fall under their control the group posted of their pfizer raising their flag in the territory however the region's resistance groups maintain. They haven't been defeated. Let's get the latest now with surgeon. Gazelle a visiting teacher at the london school of economics. Welcome to the program. So is john. Do you think the war is really over now homeless. Do we actually know about what's been happening in punchier. Well the war has perhaps An ended in the sense that the taliban have declared victory across afghanistan but there will be another conflict internally where you will see pockets of resistance across the ghanistan against taliban role and that is something that will likely last for years come because there is resistance towards the taliban at the moment it is not significant enough to concern them but it is something that is noticeable and it is getting a support across many of the urban centers of the country. And what about in in pens year. The region's resistance groups. They claim that they are still fighting. Well the resistance in punchier. Is that now off. A insurgency ironically similar to how the taliban used to be previously the punchier valley is a geographically very difficult place to control. It's god valleys and ridges and no one had previously been able to take control of it. Not even the soviets during the occupation of aghanistan in the nineteen eighties. So the fact that the taliban claiming victory and they've been able to hoist their flag in the capital of punchier is significant but they don't entirely controlled into the whole region off the punt share valley. There are still some pockets of resistance.

"Everything. I hear coming out of this white house. The state department is attempt to normalize the taliban and we also have talked about everything else. But but jim kalki normalize relations with the taliban. Here's the problem with trying to do that. Is is what you're doing is empowering and legitimizing them and what that will do is speed the the degree to which they will become a threat their relationship with al qaeda and the network and as you know the connie were were the people that originally insisted that the taliban invite bin laden to come to afghanistan they they span afghanistan and pakistan. They have a relationship with pakistani intelligence services these are or religious zealots and the taliban may not have the perfect relationship with it but they can't give them up explain why al qaeda and connie have to go back to afghanistan have to reconstitute their basis. Why is the twentieth anniversary. September the eleventh so important. What is there that goal right now and this gets to the key point. Why the administration's course of action is so incredibly dangerous that it is it is it is actually the beginning of the most dangerous phase of this crisis not the end of the crisis but the start of the really big scary crisis because once alka and they've already done this the day they touch back on afghan soil. They have one thing in mind only one thing they have to do. They have to have another nine eleven. They have to do it. And it has to be planned out about ghanistan. It's not like oh. We learned our lesson. Stick to terrorism or other places. The americans won't bother us again because honor is power and they have to regain their honor and they have to regain their respect and they have to fill the historic mission that the global jihad is alive and well and the way they do.

Find a bad guy. And i didn't get onto one of our c- seventeens. I'm just going to get myself to mexico and walk across the border and do terrorism here in in america is that is that out of the question. Nos nasa basha getting to look at intelligence community. If those there'd be an honest will tell you the same thing. Here's what we do know. All the rhetoric this ministration though saying that one terrorist organization how the fighting with one tears organization. That's all bunk because reality is all the terrorist organizations now fully operated freely in afghanistan. Have all one thing in common their hatred for america and their unwavering commitment to do us harm remains and so they're going to continue as they happen looking for every single vol- ability to do that mission to do us harm and right now. One of the biggest vulnerabilities that this country has is our southern border.

That was president trump in alabama at the weekend at a record-breaking rally and we honored to have my former boss with us here on national radio show america first across the country president trump. Welcome back. thank you very much. Mr president Let's start at the beginning How different was your approach to national security. There was no woke as a under the us military. When you a commander in chief talked to millions of lessons across the country about your plans for of ghanistan the conditions based withdrawal and what. We have witnessed the disaster. We've witnessed in the last three weeks. Maybe the greatest most embarrassing disaster we've ever witnessed in our country. The difference was Almost first of all it was the opposite. It was the exact opposite. We knocked out isis. When i took in when i took over isis was all over the middle east. We knocked out one hundred percent of the isis caliphate. I noticed now. They call it isis k. So you'll explain that but We knocked out one hundred percent of the isis caliphate. We took out Al-baghdadi the leader of isis. And you know what else and who else we took out. We took out plenty and we were in total control in terms of kabul and in terms of afghanistan. They weren't even close to us. We were going to get people. Because i believe in getting at twenty one years is enough and we were like a police force over there and they've got to take care of themselves and as you know better than anybody predicted as soon as we leave They would stop fighting and they were fighting for a lot of money.

"Is this inner freedom of realizing. We'll be right where we are so. I'd like to start by responding to some of the questions and misunderstandings that arise around any consideration of contentment. And some imagine contentment is being this kind of dissociation from the world dreamy floating that's above and beyond life's difficulties kind of the image of a cow. Contentedly munching on grass of meadow. Or something like real trance-like and actually true contaminant involves a full presence with the life. That's right here with him around us and it doesn't mean we don't experience difficult emotions. It means were okay with feeling. Whatever is arising so by way of example this week inner contentment for me has not blocked me from feeling alarm and angry for those an up. Ghanistan those and haiti.

That's a much better lesson for them than it is. If you have been successful straight out of the gate and so. It is a pretty incredible feeling in I Dunno I tried like I said I try and walk that line between being very grateful, humble and living in the moment, and also not having the expectation that I'm going to be able to write. Six books or seven books are eight books down the road, and if that happens, it's. If it doesn't try GONNA. Try in in live this to the fullest I guess we've had an interesting career to this point too I understand. Ten Years in the arm? GonNa Guess Army because your helicopter Yeah Yeah. Yeah Army Yep and but why tin what? Happened and tell me a little about sure, so I went to school on a Army ROTC scholarship in in so after college I went in. Was Wish Fortunate enough to get aviation? Not just aviation, but attack aviation got the fly Apache helicopters in it is. It is hard to have a bad day when you're flying in Apache helicopter amine. It's when you get to shoot. There's all kinds of great things to shoot on that, but there's a thirty millimeter that hangs underneath the Chin bubble that you can slave to your eyes, and so you literally look at a target and squeeze the trigger. Squeeze the trigger. The whole helicopter shakes like this jackhammer hitting in the chest and it's it's the best feeling in the world. And I was a cavalry troop commander Ghanistan in that he knew very much harkens back to the the the wild west, where the cavalry is coming over the the hill. The say the day you got to do that and realize you got to hear people on the radio. Who needed your help and show up and do that? Help and so two to get to that point? I knew I wanted to stay in long enough to be a troop commander, which, or which is in in the cavalry, is the same as a company commander in the not cavalry in. So you have to the way it works as a as a army officer as aviators, you do kind of your platoon time for a while where you fly a lot, and then you take staff job for a couple years, and then he come out in your company or troop commander, and then you take staff jobs again and so I knew I wanted to be a troop commander in knew that I wanted to deploy because I felt like. I had signed up for in. That's what would I had spent my time training to do over and over and over again, but also knew that you know year away from my family was a long time and at the time we only had two kids, and so my son was. Key. Three. Three or four when we deployed talk to him on the phone, but my daughter was only you know eighteen months or something says she was really hard, and she didn't. She didn't really know who I was. When I came back and it was something you know I wanted to do once, but knew it wasn't something that I wanted to continue to do I have a lot of friends who stayed in in in did not do that and they have. Have spent cumulative five or six years away from their family and their kids to do that. Because that's the, there's a lot of pride in serving with an all volunteer army, but what that means is the force levels especially for aviation..

"Welcome back to. Radio. Twenty now is awesome. Paul welcome to the show. Thank you. Thanks for having me. Oh, it's our pleasure. It's our pleasure and congratulations on the the novel borrowing of bones. So we're excited about that. Yes. Me too. We'll tell us a little bit about the without giving all the goodies way. Tell us a little bit about the premise of the book and how it all came about about four years ago. I was lucky enough to help run a fundraiser with Leo Maloney is a thriller writer who loves dogs, and he was doing this fundraiser for mission canine rescue an organization that rescues military working dogs and repatriates them forever home. And I just fell in love with all these dogs. I met all kinds of working dogs. I met soldiers and your bond sniffing dogs. I met game wardens and their illegally cured fish nipping dogs. I met, you know, law enforcement and their drug missing I fell in love with them. And after that fundraiser, I was writing this book called the writers the beginning was a book intended to help riders start off the great first chapter. And so I needed my own first chapter that I could show through various provisions. Over the course of the book. So right one, and I'll put I love then I'll put in he's working dogs military working dogs in Vermont and the Green Mountain, and they'll put in soldiers, I was raising military family. And so I wrote his first chapter about mercy car MP Neff ghanistan, we're getting battle, and it's the same battle. That kills her yon say Martinez, and he's a God handler dog is Elvis a fierce and fabulous wa and when he died that's her take care of my dog. Because the thing about these working dogs is we know k sort of. Okay. Dob on the dogs attire of finding them forever homes with their former handlers. But some of these dogs are not army dogs depends of dog and those dogs can end up in Feltus kennels, abandoned. And that's when mission canine goes and finds them, so I made Elvis one of these dogs that she has to go home, and she has to find his dog. And abandoned one of these places bring him home to Vermont and together, they're sort of marked off their Greece who the green mountains every day. And that's the course when they stumble across and the band and baby and a shallow grave. A lot of activity lot of a lot of things going on. And there's a lot of things that are popping in my mind. I I wanna a we'll come back to the writing of the book, and how you just so elk said, I think I'll just write a book about this. I know it's not that easy. We'll come back to that. But the characters in the book, you mentioned quite a few of them. I mean, how did you come about developing the characters were the loosely based on people in the animals that you had worked with with the rescue organization or with the through the fundraising or were they just ones that came to mind thought this would be a good character for the book. But the dogs are certainly based on real dogs. They're inspired by the real dogs that I met that the Elvis the Malan wa of military working dog the bomb sniffing dog. He's inspired by the bond dogs. I I met her mission canine rescue search and rescue dog who's paired up with the Vermont game wooden who helps mercy the Selva crime. That dog is inspired by our own rescue. Who's a Newfoundland retriever mix bear and Sousa bears. Inspired by that dog. The certainly the dogs aren't fired by real people. I think it was at that, Cheryl. Maybe who said we'd take six people to make. One there. And I think that's true. You know? So I there's sort of an amalgamation of different people that I've known. Putting together the characters putting gear the novel. You said it was a five year process it to put it all together was that from start to finish. When I put the first letter of that first infamous chapter that you talked about all the way through publishing or was it five years of doing research and being involved in the activities were involved in volunteer took several years, my agent read, the writers guide to beginnings, and she read the sample chapter that I wrote about mercy card Elvis, and she said, that's really good. You should finish that. And I said, yes. And so I did and he sold it. And the next thing I knew I had a is very exciting. So is this the first in a series of these books or is just three different approaches? Three different books writing series book to we'll be out next year. Okay, finished it. And that was a tough one. Two is tough. Absolutely. Absolutely. So what should we go back to the book here borrowing of bones? What should people be looking for in in the book? Is this a real thriller? Would you call it is it a mixture of different types of fiction? You're putting in there, or is it a would they walk away with after reading the book of Arlington bones? But I like to think that it's a lot like Margaret Makishi, MS books or or even one reviewer compared it to Joyce Spencer miming series. I think it's sort of a traditional mystery in the fact that it has clues and it has no murderers defined into identify to bring to Justice. But it also has excitement than it has aspects of fillers. Well, there's, you know, all kinds of scenes where the dogs and and mercy and the game wouldn't have to work together to save the baby. The mothers, vases, all those kinds of exciting. So I think it's a little mix it sort of your professional mystery thriller, and it was great fun. Right. And like I said, I got to put all the things I love as a longtime mystery fan longtime dog lover, I guess all the things I love about dogs and mysteries in the John. I think it's great thing, you know, about if obviously there are plenty of murder mystery fans out there, and I know the love the book from that aspect, but there's also doglovers animal lovers. They're gonna love feel tracking down what's going on with Elvis from what's going on with the characters and how they play out from from the animal stamp wing. But also get combine your tidbits of you know, the work that you did to help the organization. Right, right. I'm very passionate about all of these rescue groups. We rescued another dog three weeks ago from white river junction rescue in Vermont. And there's so many dogs that need rescuing and catch too. We have a rescue cat as well. And of course, their cats in the book because Ursula would be very upset with. Cats in the book. That's right. That's right. That's especially you never seen a cat. You know, not want to defend themselves. We dog books out there. So it's funny. I have to admit though, I don't see on the cover on the back. They'll see a cat on there. We have to talk to your publicist about that. The dog. Yeah. I always makes it funny. When I talk about writing in publishing books I've written in publishing other nonfiction. But dogs always sell. I said, well, you know, there's cats stories in these books too. So they put a cat and the nice little picture on the back. You know? So yeah. Yeah. I don't know if it appears the cats or not. Building. But that's okay. Well, you know, cats are always the stars in their own mind. So that's right. That's right. They know what they don't need accolades. Great. Well, when everybody copy of the book, borrowing of bones, and they take a look at and read through it and love it. What do you hope they walk away from after reading the book? What's your takeaway on that? When I hope they take away the sense that dogs really do. They really do improve our lives. They enhance our lives and every possible way. And I also hope they understand a little better that contributions that working dogs make to our lives and to our soldiers, and our law enforcement, and our purpose bonded, these dogs worked so hard, and they deserve to be living their lives once they're retired in good places with good people. And and that's really my I have a mission that really missing. Yeah. That's a great takeaway and expand on that. I really the thing I found fascinating about the book. Was you know, I see a lot of books written about military dogs, whether they're fiction or nonfiction type books, which is fantastic in that message out getting those dogs back home get him in a good homes where they're with their original soldier partners or whether it's another families fantastic. But as you mentioned the other first responders in the other dogs are volved. I don't see or hear a lot about that. No. When you're so many of them now, especially you know, with all of these natural disasters with the terrorist spread across the country. You know bomb sniffing dogs are in great demand. Drug sniffing dogs are in great demand for law enforcement searching rescue people. There's a fabulous group here in New England. I talk about in the book to that. You know, whenever somebody goes missing in the woods. People are always being lost in the woods. Right. Hikers hunters, you know, children the elderly and when they go missing not only do. Law enforcement and game wardens served with their dogs. But there are volunteers who volunteer their dogs dogs enormous training. So that they can come out every call help find missing people. Absolutely. So all of need accolades because they do great work. And I love the one you mentioned about the fish game wildlife. Fish smelly dog I mean, scratch my head for minutes. Like, you know, that's true. Yes. Their dogs who kept poker's. That's right. And we need those dogs, and they work with game wardens and wildlife law enforcement all the time. And it's great because we people shouldn't be Poteen. We need to save and preserve our wildlife, and these dogs help us do it. There you go. So big shout out to all the hardworking dogs and all the require is just a good roof over the head and Pat on the back in a lot of love, and they'll go out and do their work. Exactly. In a peanut butter Kong. That's right now, the better they fill NetCom with pizza stick into freezer. Let munch on that all day. That's that's a good one. All right.

Tell Amazon that unless you say, no. We will cancel deal councilman van Bremer on the Brian Lehrer show next time your calls for the mayor on Amazon or anything the Brian Lehrer show at ten AM on WNYC. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning. What does the future of the US troop presence in Afghanistan? President Trump's administration has been pushing for a peace deal and talking of pulling troops out of the country. The Senate now as a different view lawmakers, including Republican leader Mitch McConnell voted just yesterday that US troops should stay believe the threats remain. Al-qaeda have yet today defeated at American national security on I require continued commitment to our mission, by the way, many Democrats did not support that resolution meaning they did not vote to continue a US troop presence. That is nearing the end of its second decade retired. Lieutenant General David Barna was overall commander in Afghanistan from two thousand three to two thousand five and he's on the line general good morning. Are US troops still need an NF ghanistan. I think unfortunately, they are. And I think Senator McConnell I hit the nail on the head when he said that the defeat of ISIS and their feet. Al Qaeda's still out there in front of a somewhere in those troops. Are what keeps further strikes from happening here on the United States? And no for seventeen years. American troops have been in Afghanistan. I was there for over a year and a half both my sunspot spot in Afghanistan and show all those folks who served out there. Now, they believe they were fighting to prevent the Taliban from taking over the country. And I think a lot of people's minds that may now be on the table. Although general I feel that you just indicated some of the very reasons that some people might be inclined to get out of Afghanistan. Seventeen years is a long time where the eighteenth year, I think you're talking about a generational conflict where fathers and sons have fought. And now there is some kind of a peace deal that seems to be an reached that might conceivably bring the Taliban into some kind of government. And if that piece. Deal is to work at all. It would include a commitment that Afghanistan wooden harbor terrorists. Is that possibly enough? I think that's essential. But I also think that we're moving a bit too quickly on our negotiations. And we may want a settlement much more than the Taliban. Does right now that's a bad negotiating position to go in with clearly wanna find negotiated settlement. But it's got involved protecting the gains that we've made over the time we've served there and the prospect of Taliban taking over the country, and wiping out all of those games and human rights, and democracy, all the things that people fought for I think, that's problematic. I think that's where the senate's resolution came from yesterday. There's there's a lot of reason to proceed with caution here. Well, let's bring another voice into this debate from the house of representatives where Democrats have new power. Of course, Adam Smith is the new democratic chairman of the House Armed Services committee, and in an interview on this program the other day, he said, okay, it's really bad withdrawal, bad consequences. But maybe even worse to stay and stay and stay. Let's listen to a bit of that a strategy. That says our continued military presence in Afghanistan is unlikely to improve the situation is unlikely to be worth the cost is an argument that is becoming more and more persuasive. Do you intend to use the power that you have is the head of this committee to push for that outcome? I intend to use the power that happened this committee to spur that debate. Okay. So open question general barn. If Adam Smith calls you as a witness before his committee. What arguments would you use to him that even if there's a peace deal, even if ISIS seems to be on the run US troops should stay more years. I think the ultimate argument is a national security interests of the United States. Do we have the ability to prevent Al Qaeda from resurging in Afghanistan from ISIS from getting stronger in Afghanistan much, like we saw happening rock after we pulled out of Iraq in two thousand eleven this isn't you know, because we're a great Manitoba industry because it's in our national security interests to maintain a very small important. Presence there in the keep ISIS and al-qaeda from returning and presenting threat against the United States. Where would you go so far as max booth? The analyst who's writing this week that listen this is just going to be a permanent presence never gonna fully win. Always got to be there. Well, we certainly had a permanent presence in Europe after World War Two and in Japan after World War Two, and some would argue that that's the reason that those two regions stage stable because we kept American troops. There. We've got less than two percent of the active duty US military involved in Syria in Afghanistan combined. A lot of people would say that's a good investment in our long term security in this country general bar. It's always a pleasure listening to you. Thank you so much. Great talk with retired. Lieutenant General David Barna this early in the twenty twenty presidential campaign. The candidates have choices to make one of them is how to raise their money as NPR's. Peter Overby reports many candidates agreed. They're not going to accept cash from corporate political action committees candidates, like New York Senator. Kirsten gillibrand who jetted to Iowa after announcing her campaign standing in front of some big barrels that had to Moines brew pub, she laid into Washington, and what was wrong. Works the way. Washington works is the money politics is corrupting controls everything her speech built to a pledge. You got to take on the whole system, and you have to get money. And that's why as a very slow for sap. Incorporate pathway. Tiffany Muller's president of end citizens United a political action committee this been urging Democrats to swear off corporate PACS every candidate who has announced that they are running for president has said that they will not take any corporate pack money one possible reaction to this. So what political scientists Jennifer Victor of George Mason University follows the political money trails. You know in some ways the commitment for a presidential candidate. Not to take Pac money is a really weak commitment because presidential candidates generally, don't take much pack money in the two thousand sixteen presidential race, Florida. Senator Marco Rubio lead the field, and pack fundraising still all of his pack money Nassar's from corporate PACS amounted to barely two percent of his total campaign fund. What's happening now is at least the start of a pivot more than half of the newly elected house. Democrats say they don't want corporate Pat contributions in effect. They're moving beyond traditional fundraise. Using the business of combing rolodexes to build fundraising networks, and they're branding themselves to raise money online Muller said when n citizens United did polling after the midterm elections. Independent voters told us that cleaning up Washington and cleaning up corruption was the number one reason why they chose who they voted for. So I think these presidential candidates understand that Jill brand and Kamala Harris, a Senator from California have both pronounced money from corporate PACS and federal lobbyists, Massachusetts, Senator Elizabeth Warren does that and goes further rejecting all packs left or right. These three candidates all disavow super PACS, even though legally a super Pac can't work with a candidate. Anyway. And they emphasize small donor money in the twenty four hours after Harris announced her campaign raised one and a half million dollars online an echo of the midterm elections. But Taryn Rosencrantz of the digital fundraising firm. New blue interactive said. Things will look different. This time grassroots is going to be, you know, much like the electorate spread thin across so many different candidates. She said in the early weeks, the small donor totals may amount to an ad-hoc straw poll. But in the long run they likely won't supply enough cash to fully fund White House bid. Peter Overby NPR news, Washington. Today is the day that the boy scouts of America begins calling itself scouts BSA and will allow girls to earn the rank of eagle scout. Here's Katie Blakely wer, say reporting that seventy six thousand girls already signed up on a recent morning at the laurel highlands council headquarters in downtown Pittsburgh, twelve year old Ellie Riegner rummages through containers of small circular patches, she picks up a red badge with gold lining and shows it to her mother, Abby this one's her favorite. She says and she's done the sport before tree. It has a bow. And arrow who has the Vincent Vincent, my brother. He knew what he is. And cub scouts. What's his rank? Elia's brother Vincent is nine years old and has been in cub scouts since he was eligible to join at six Elliott says in those three years, she'd often go to her brother's pack meetings and watch like the well known cub scouts pinewood derby. It's where you paint cars, and you raise them down a track and this year for the first time Ellie made a car of her own has the blue and black. I didn't have any problems in down the track. This isn't the only I Ellie will take part in this year younger girls have been able to join cub scouts for nearly a year. But now older girls have a path to earn. The highest rank of eagle scout Eli's mom, Abby will be the scout master for the new all girls troupe. She says she's glad Gerston take advantage of the scouting program. I just like, that's awesome. I was the kid who wanted to be a boy scout. And my daughter kind of missed out on all of that. And I wanted to give her an opportunity to do the things that they know she really likes. She says they'll model the new. The older girls troops on the boys. Combining the two for things like opening pledges and announcements the for the majority of activities and outings troops will be single-sex. That's something. Laurel highlands council. Scouting executive CO. Sharon, mold says, she wants people to understand. It's not a co Ed program. There's boy troops in girl troops. It's important for the development of young men and women to have separate troops. She says especially in their early teenage years when they're learning leadership skills. There has been criticism from girl scouts USA who filed a complaint against the boy scouts name-change last year. Mold says scouts BSA isn't discouraging girls from joining the one hundred seven year old girl scouts within boy. Scouts. There is also some resistance with allowing curls. But she says most members have come around kind of a mix because we have some that their grandfathers interstate. Oh, I can get my granddaughter. And and I think generally what they're concerned about is. They think they're going to merge together and be co Ed which is never going to happen. When the decision to invite girls into boy scouts was not an easy. One mold says family sold the organization it would be more convenient for their increasingly busy schedules to drop their children off at one meeting. Mold says girls are already telling her how much they're looking forward to being involved. They're excited about having the opportunity to do. They've seen the third brothers do or the other boys. Do I think a lot of them what we're seeing as they just wanna be eagle scouts. That's the case for twelve year old Ellie regular with her first official day is a scout coming up she's been reading up on the ranks in her future.

"Hi, I'm Sean Rama's firm. This is today. Explain to understand how huge it would be if the United States could broker some kind of peace in Afghanistan, you have to understand that the country's been in conflict for around forty years and the Taliban was born in the middle of that conflict. The telephone is a Sweeney of gun insurgency that has been fighting the United States since two thousand one vonda fell by Brown is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. It has its background in an origins in the nineteen eighty s of con- insurgency against the Soviet invasion of the country, the Taliban, some of the Hadena who were fighting the Soviets. They shared a common enemy with the United States. And both the Carter and Reagan administrations gave the mujahedeen three billion dollars military aid to fight the Soviets and in the nineteen nineties after the Soviets withdrew the country fell into civil war of with various parts of the country controlled by various CONMEBOL loads. The most militant extremists faction of the dean turned into the Taliban and from ninety four started fighting against the warlords against the various. Clans and tribes and factions and graduate to over the country. And what do they do once they take control of the country, the Taliban did the litter on its promise of bringing stability peace to large portions of the country by two thousand one the Taliban really ruled most of ghanistan the exception of. A small space in the north the Taliban did stop the corruption vity human rights abuses, rapes robberies of the various for lords. But they unleashed their own serious Eumenides violations and abuses. They really wanted to turn ghanistan into a ninth century like backward place. So women were tremendously restricted in their freedoms. They could not get chomps. They couldn't access healthcare. Been where stone for adultery for men. Many men but executed beheaded and apart from that the Taliban, but also inadequate in their administrative capacity and not just inadequate. They really wanted to turn ghanistan into backward place, and they actively went ahead and destroyed an investitures of economic activity and social government administration. And how and when does al-qaeda show up allocate them of emerged of some of the same fighters in this case foreign non Afghan fighters who were fighting the Soviet some bin Laden was one of the fortified fighting of ghanistan against the Soviet innovation. And it is in Afghanistan where he got to know the future leader of the Taliban, Omar, so particularly in the core group of fighters around him head lots of connections personal relationships with bin Laden when Kedah under bin Laden's leadership was looking for a place to have a safe haven for its operations. They show the for number of countries for a while they were in Sudan, ultimately, they got pushed out from Sudan and said that point in the mid ninety nineties where they set up camp in Afghanistan bid, the bowl calm and protection. Of Malamah, and it is out of ghanistan where al-qaeda playing major attacks major international terrorist attacks against US Cole against the USA embassies in Duns Aena in Kenya. And ultimately, of course, nine eleven. After nine eleven the United States requested that the Taliban hints overall, Kedah bin Laden and other al-qaeda members for prosecution in the US, the Taliban has been given the opportunity to surrender all the tourists and Afghantistan and to close down their camps and operations full warning has been given and time is running out tell about, of course, refused to do that and the United States invaded Afghanistan, but then metro peaks toppling the of gun Taliban regime, and by about late two thousand one only two thousand two the Taliban is really eliminated us a regime entity in of ghanistan. The United States than subsequently tries to build a functioning government in got any STAN and the beginning of that are significant hope among the compilation the much, but the government and much but to governance though, follow that is tremendous and Tuesday's them only on box the governance that then follows is troubled of the governance is pervaded by corruption abuses like of government capacity, and this provides foretell ground for the Taliban to entrench its emotional relation..

"But is that something we want to be doing that may be true when you win were too? And when it come on, your enemies, or Germany, and Japan, I'm not sure it's what you wanna do in place. Life ghanistan Iraq or Syria about the decision the decisions on Syria. I mean based on what you've said, you you don't you have grave doubts about about interventions that have no and point to them or strategy to them. What what could or should have been done in? Syria that wasn't done while I do think the red line was a problem not plan. Obama said he would he said he would he would not tolerate the users chemical, and and and I think when a president of the United States makes a strong commitment like that he needs to follow through. I think if he had tied the threat of the use of force directly to the removal of chemical weapons from Syria, which is back. What happened in the end? We would have had a textbook example. Of course, if diplomacy of using the threat of force to get a diplomatic end and in some ways, that's where we stumbled into. But I think we president's words are important. I think for finding does right now when the president United States says one thing and eat ministration doesn't other thing countries around the world say, I don't know who I can trust. I don't know who I can live with. So the the the president's word is in is important. The basic animating force of President Obama was the idea. That unless I know how this right I'm not willing to get in. I think was the right choice. And I think we learned in places like Somalia places, even the Balkans. And certainly Iraq that getting a little bit pregnant is not really an option you either in in which case, you get pulled all the way or you may be shouldn't get involved. And I think the idea that a little bit of arming of some people here and a little bit of no-fly zone. There was sort of fundamentally changed the course of this of the Syrian conflict. I I don't buy a larger question is whether particularly the red line and the unwillingness to the overt unwillingness to really get involved. Militarily opened up the door to the Russians to get involved. And I do think that countering Russian influence anywhere outside of Russia. Is something that is very important to us. It's why I have strong the belief that we should have done more in Ukraine, as it is countering more to to counter, the Chinese in in in East Asia is important because these are countries that can actually fundamentally affect our our real existential interests, and I think focusing on those threats. And building strong coalitions with our allies to countering those threats of something that's very important. We have always succeeded in that as we as we talk about the Middle East. We had this major event and we've had a series that you've written about events that all lead to NBS in Saudi Arabia and the assassination of kashogi the journalists, but also other activities that he has been involved in and all apparently with the ascent of of the US. What is the impact of that? I think the way in which the administration dealt with the kashogi follow on particularly the present himself in this incredible statement that he issued sometime in November where he basically said because they buy stuff from us. We don't really care what it is that they do has commas a as an eye opener. Frankly to people in the United States, the US Senate moved quite deliberately and strongly against the idea that this was the kind of behavioral at one could expect from the president of the United States. But also, I think again of countries around the world, they in some ways have taken the measure that the way you can get something from Donald Trump is to give him something that he cares about which basically is money, and.

Current accurate information happening now, no matter where it happens. World that's going to happen. Very quickly. Here's something. LS AM eight ninety act. This is a really dangerous time in America. You know, what makes it so dangerous? It occurred to me the other day, I was talking with somebody who's on the board of the major nonprofit institution. I was talking about the possibility of joining the board of this major nonprofit charity participates in nonpartisan non-political work in the arts, and I was being recruited to join this board. And I said to the person who was leading up this search for the board member as you do realize that if I joined the board they're gonna be a bunch of members of the board when on the political left, we're going to get very very upset. They're gonna get very very angry. And this could trouble for you. And the person I was talking to said, well, it could be worse than that. Actually. But it could be that you joined the board. Everybody's basically okay with it. And then something happens, you see something that's controversial. And members of the board decide they're gonna threatened to quit members of this group decide they're not going to be part of the group anymore. If you remain, and we have to throw you out, and it occurred to me that it is actually impossible for me. Now to join a nonprofit nonpartisan glue. Good works doing body. I can't actually do it. I can't be on the board because there's too much risk that people who disagree with me. Politically are going to throw me out of an aide doing organization simply on the basis of my politics could screw with my career simply by attacking me from the inside of an organization where I'm trying to do. Some nonpartisan good. That's a nasty and polarized and negative are America has become that's how much the left has decided to drive people out of the public square with whom they disagree and my friends at his Prager was supposed to conduct at the Santa Monica orchestra. They tried to organize a boycott for him raising money for the Santa Monica orchestra because he was conducting there, and he happens to be conservative. This is the mentality that is at work in the United States right now. And this has been a long time in coming. Alexis de Tocqueville, the great commentator from eighteen thirty five and democracy in America. He talked specifically about his fear that in the United States, the great method of oppressing freedom of speech was going to be simply public pressure. Not even the government cracking down on things, but public pressure. Here's what he said. He said prince's made violence a physical thing. Today's Democratic Republic has has have made it as intellectual as the human. Will it seeks to horse under the absolute government of one man despotism tried to reach the soul by striking crudely at the body? And the alluding such rose gloriously above it. So what he's saying? There is that under tyrannies like Stalinist Russia, for example, you could try to shut somebody down. But it was obvious. The person was resisting tyranny. Recess journey and democratic republic's does not proceed in the same way. It knows the body and go straight for the soul. The master Milonga says you will think as I do or die. He says you're not to think because I do you make your life your property and everything else, but from this day forth, you Shelby as a stranger among us, your retainer civic privileges. But there will be of no use to you. If you seek the votes of your fellow citizens there withhold them if you seek only their esteem, they will fainter refuse even that you'll remain among men, but you will forfeit your rights to humanity when you approach fellow creatures. They will shun you as one who is impure, and even those who believe in your innocence will abandon you. Let's to shunned and her go in peace. I will not take your life, but the life I leave you with is worse than death. This is the America Reno with where if you hold it opinion that it's politically incorrect, you can watch as your career is ripped away as all your friends run from you as everybody thinks you're innocent goes silence. That's why the left pushes boycott tactics. Now, the differences that the Tocqueville when he was writing eighteen thirty five he was worried. The vast bulk of the public was gonna shut down dissenting views what we have now in America, something even more dangerous. We have time we minorities of people who make themselves heard extraordinarily loud. We in the media, and then the media pretends that their views ARD majority of us, and if you contradict these small vocal radical minorities, then you get all the consequences of Tocqueville talked about then you're thrown out of the club. Then you're no longer too loud to eat in a restaurant, then we're going to make sure you can't participate in a nonprofit all the left had to do was take the commanding heights of specific institutions, and then pretend that those institutions represented a majority will and they could silence everybody else informally without the use of government case in point today.
