I did want to squeeze in get to all these fun little cat and dog stories and catherine talked about yesterday on the and that is where we are because this pertains to what rush talks about a little later in the hour with regard to the media fawning the the american liberal fawning over the right kind of fascism remember. The nazi party was the national socialist workers party. And what we're going through today is not the purest form of communism as in the cold war. Unless you're talking about china where the government owns the means of production. This is more of a corporatism. A globalist corporatism. And that's that's what we're fighting.

Vlad tidings: demonstrations across Russia
"On saturday tens of thousands of russians took to the streets in more than a hundred towns and cities across the country. In support of jailed kremlin critic. Alexey navalny protesters chanted. Putin is a thief as well as freedom to navalny chilling videos emerged police beating and kicking demonstrators. The response was not one about an out brutality. More than three thousand arrests were made at. Even mr navalny's wife was briefly. Detained the demonstrations were sparked mr navalny's arrest on spurious charges. Just as soon as he returned from germany last week but protesters were also fired up by to our video narrated by mr navalny and released a day later. Throw it saw my viceroy was thirty. Wrestling depicts a lavish palace. On the black sea. Allegedly built for president vladimir putin and funded with dodgy. Money allegations the kremlin dismissed as just rumor mr putin remains in a tough spot with disquiet spreading and his loudest critic making just as much trouble while in jail as he did out of it. This was not my first protest in moscow in quite a few the past few years are cody. Trotsky is russia editor in moscow. I would say that. Fear was one of caution pretty much on both sides the fact that people have braved the streets brave. The police cordons came out. Despite enormous intimidation campaign was waged. By the kremlin in the preceding days is in itself extraordinary russia's much more repressive state today than it was even a few years ago. The people who were out in the street was certainly not radicals as abba in moscow protests. That was scary. Moments police charging but on the whole the police behavior some restraint and its actions were nowhere on the level of violence and brutality which we saw a few months ago in neighboring belarus. There was no special measures with no tear. Gas rubber bullets so it was definitely tense. But i didn't see many of the accesses and when we spoke to protesters what were they saying. Why were they out. The protesters came from the social strata and had different possibly political beliefs. What brought them out onto the street. Were few things. There was a sense of injustice over the arrest of alexei novel name who was arrested at possible control on the rival at airport and is now facing three and a half years in jail for breaking parole rules on a previous suspended sentence and the reason he broke his parole rules. That didn't comfortable to the police was just happened to be recovering from novichok nerve agent poisoning in germany. So people obvious that as an injustice the other big catalyst for the protest was the release of alexander violence extraordinary two hour long documentary film about allegedly putin secret palace in the black sea coast which was bill deem volumes cronies at a cost of one point three billion dollars. It's your absolutely archetypal. James bond villains had with all the trimmings and the golden toilet brushes that made a big impact. It clocked over eighty million views on youtube. An underlying over that was just general sense of tidiness of putin's regime tiredness of course lack of economic growth it was a very broad protests. And that's what made say interesting. You know lots of people came out for the first time. And so do you think that. That broad dissent a across demographics. On a lot of first-time protesters will will make any difference to to. What the kremlin actually does. It's not going to make any difference. In the short term the kremlin has already said. It's not going to pay attention. Admittedly fiscal putin spokesman said well. We think it was a very small protests. Many more people vote for vladimir putin. That was ironic. Given that alexander was barred from the election in which people voted for vladimir putin the reason the numbers were kept down walls because of enormous intimidation campaigns parents schoolchildren were told to keep their kids at home. Students were threatened with expulsion employs. The employees they'd risk dismissal if they would join the protest et cetera et cetera. The kremlin is not going to release alexei navalny overnight but only himself and he's associates of said. This is not an immediate process. This is a long haul to re coined the famous phrase by me. He'll gorbachev in the late eighties. The process started so. Do you think that the detention of of mr navalny and the release of this video and all of those us have really changed things. Is this a turning point. They do and this change effects vladimir putin's legitimacy which is already being Waning and we. We've seen that in in the raising figures. But this film and alexander. Violence return to russia is a massive blow to putin's legitimacy and to the attitudes and perceptions of putin in the broad russian public as one commentator set to me you know two years ago people had to explain why they oppose putin today they have to justify why they support him. And how has the international community responded to to this protest mood and these protests i think so far west leaders have been watching very carefully. What's happening in russia. has been rhetorical outrage. At least both from angela merkel Sees this as a slap in her face because nobody was in germany under her protection also been marketed. Different reaction from washington. I think we will see a very different response. From biden's administration compared to trump's acquiescence to putin's action has been called for tax sanctions including from poland. A you member states the foreign ministers to discuss next steps. But i think there is also worry amongst western countries and particularly among russian neighbors and countries like the baltic states and poland that events in russia will have repercussions outside russian borders and this north unfounded fears because in two thousand fourteen two years after big protests swept russia features berg and other big cities the kremlin annexed crimea and stuff the war in ukraine in order to change the narrative and dominate political agenda so lot of russia neighbors worried that repression at home and protests against the kremlin will lead to aggression.

"Music lovers thrill seekers conversationalists all across the fruited plain. It is great to be back in this next clip from Rush is really, really important because it's very, very important to identify a problem before you can fix it. And there's all this talk about liberals today, and it's hard to believe in the era of the squad being moderates calling for unity, being liberals or certainly not liberals in the classical sense in the classical sense Before Roosevelt destroyed the term, a liberal was someone who projected more liberty. Liberal schools of art meant meant well tied the free inquiry of ideas today our schools, especially our institutions of higher education, indoctrinate, they do not educate. Which is not why, by the way, 115th Congress we tried to make them accountable with transparency and I go a step further. Not one public dollar for these schools that do not have due process and free speech, but I die aggress. You've got to identify the opposition and rush did this in a funny way by explaining what a gore Bassam is fire away Now, ladies and gentlemen, for those of you, too young Who have remembered Or to those of you who weren't paying attention back in the 19 eighties, when I give you a little history lesson During the 19 eighties. The Al Qaeda of the day was the Soviet Union and, to a lesser extent, the chai calms, But the Soviet Union was the enemy of the United States acknowledged enemy Of the United States, Soviet communism was expanding. Every Soviet leader Gorbachev, Brezhnev, Yuri Andropov, for doing their best to expand Communist beachheads all over the world. Nicaragua, Cuba, you name it, They were literally trying to expand everywhere. The Democrat party did not see the Soviet Union is much of an enemy. They didn't see the Soviet Union as much of a threat. They saw the Soviet Union is a great attempt actually, and equality and fairness in governing the society for the first five years of the Reagan administration, he refused to meet with the Soviet leader. The media. The Democrat Party that was dangerous. You got to meet with him. You've got to have dialogue. You gotta talk nuclear weapons, nuclear warheads all over the place. The nuclear arms race of nukes are going river. You won't talk and Reagan said they keep dying on me. They're not staying in office long enough to have a meeting. That made a man that made the Democrats in the media man. Reagan believe the Soviet Union would implode because of its own immorality. He believe that communism was ultimately implode on itself. But that didn't mean he didn't want to urge it along and help that along But if you weren't around to remember it, Woz Really acrimonious. The media. And the Democrat Party hated Ronald Reagan. Reagan was characterized as deranged. Asleep, half the time finger dangerously poised on the nuclear trigger, and he would wipe out the world in a moment's notice. It was dangerous. It was horrible. And all of this anti Soviet talk was unnecessary is provocative. It was destabilizing. All of us going to do is make the Soviets man. The Democrat Party in immediate thought It was impossible to defeat the Soviet Union over too big. They were too powerful, and they didn't want the Soviet Union defeated. They thought that we should peacefully core exist down interchange and inter exchange of ideas and that there could be cultural exchanges and we had a lot to learn from them. They could learn something from us. But the Soviet Union was established. It was there it was legitimate, and it had no business being talked about the rate way Reagan talked about it. And then all of these old Soviet leaders began to die off, and they got a new one, and he was younger than any Soviet leader had ever been. His name is Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev. American media and the Democrat Party immediately fell in love with Macau Gorbachev. And it was hoped and thought that Macau Gorbachev was actually going to save the world from Ronald Reagan. Reagan was a dangerous cowboy. Reagan was undisciplined. Reagan was uneducated. He was a dunce. Up. O'Neill called him an amiable dunce, but he was still a dunce but garbage off Gorbachev. There was a man in home, We could place our total trust. And then Gorbachev came along and proposed a couple things called Paris Troika and glasnost and in the interests of saving time what those things were. We're simple attempts by Gorbachev to institute a little bit of freedom amongst the Soviet people while maintaining an iron fist grouping on them. And communism. What had happened was American culture began to infiltrate. The Iron Curtain. Something as simple as reruns of the Dallas TV Syriza put the lie. What the Soviet leadership told their population about America. And then Levi's jeans, and so much of pop culture began to undermine the Soviet leadership. They began to lose control their populations. They tried to institute glasnost, openness and Paris strike it. Uh, which was designed actually a fool the American media into thinking the Soviet Union was engaging in reform and that made Gorbachev all the more popular. And Gore. But Trump finally came along and made it look like he was going to be the guy that could finally sit down, have a meeting with the United States and convinced Reagan not to blow up the world. And a meeting was scheduled in Washington, D. C. Gorbachev. Was to come to the United States and actually have a meeting with Reagan, at which time Gorbachev. Would tell Reagan how it was gonna be. At which time Mikhail Gorbachev would save the world from Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan referred to the Soviet Union as the evil empire. That angered the American media and the Democrat Party like you can't believe Reagan went into the radio studio one day to record a Saturday morning presidential address and before recording joked the bombing starts in five minutes. That was leaked out and the press and the Democrat Party went bonkers. Thinking Reagan was on the verge of losing. It was literally gonna bomb this. You didn't joke about this over a million. You didn't joke about nuclear weapons. It was horrible. And so when Gorbachev and the birthmark, which grew As the Soviet Union expanded. You could see that birthmark you see, Maine is in the east coast of Florida. As the Soviets expansion and infiltration of US culture grew, So did the garbage of birthmark. And then finally,.
75 years after Hiroshima, they're still feeling its impact.
"This bomb has this frank for twenty thousand tons of TNT. Harnessing, the basic power of the universe. What I fifteen I am on August six, nine, hundred, forty, five, the US Air Force dropped the little boy uranium fission bomb on central hero. Shema. Making it the first city ever to be destroyed by a nuclear bomb. On August nine Nagy became the second when the bomb exploded around thirty percent of Hiroshima's population that were killed instantly many more died in the months and years to come. Now, the bombs brought to an end to world war two but the wool was horrified at the human cost. Russia has since become a byword for nuclear holocaust forever linked to the words never again. Now, this week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki joining me to reflect on the legacy of those events. Tashi. Tauch. She is assistant professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and the author of political fallout, nuclear weapons testing, and the making of Global Environmental Crosses. Welcome. Tasha. Thanks for having me and Michael Gordon Professor of history at Princeton University and Co. it is a of a new book called the age of Russia. Welcome. Welcome. It's very good to be here. Now, Michael the fear of the nuclear age is the period after World War Two when the US dropped the bomb. The fee was that the nuclear weapons would become a common part of conventional warfare but in the seventy five years since he Russia and Nagasaki, there's not been a single bomb dropped in a conflict. Question is this because deterrence works or have we just been lucky I would say we've mostly been lucky It's quite rare that there are conflicts between nuclear-armed nations. The major example is the nineteen sixty, nine border conflict between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. So there haven't been many occasions for things to escalate, and there's a strong incentive in those cases to de-escalate. There have however been very close near accidents whether missile just that needing on its own or people launching almost launching in fear of an attack and there. Have Been Plenty of conventional wars that could have escalated that way. So by and large, we've been lucky but we've been abetted by the fact that there has been an ambient taboo that has grown over the years against nuclear first use although that is rarely the policy of any nuclear power. Okay. Now from an Australian perspective, Tic- Japan was seen as an aggressor in the war, the war crimes but also as a victim because of the destruction wrought by the nuclear bombs have is the wool remit in Japan now aggressor and victim. Tarshi. Many pass through consider themselves as victims thinking that Japanese were misled by the government inter- Disastrous Wall Conquest. In this view here stands at the as the ultimate symbol of Japanese victim. But today is victim narrative faces two competing accounts. One is to recognize Japan's acts of wartime aggression, including tweeting massacres, forced labor, and sexual violence. If we see hero Shimmer from this perspective, it takes on a whole different meaning not. Not as a national tragedy, but rather as international event. killed not only the Japanese residents but also many colonial subjects and allied. POW's who are present in the city at the time of the Tom Bombing. The other interpretation that has also gained for Japan is to see the wartime conduct Japan as an act of self defense. This This lesion is narrative recaps here. As the ultimate proof of Western aggression. So fitting the predation of Japan's Joel Roles as. Aggressor and victim during the war will gain the upper hand in the future will depend on how sweet society around the world comes together and develops a shared understanding of the complex legacies or Corna reason on the war in the Asia Pacific region and back to the United States markle. There's a popular conception that Washington had to drop the bomb that it was the only way. To win the war, of course, the war in Europe come to an end in May of forty five. This is early August two, forty five is that true I mean what? What President Truman's options? So. This is a great question and it's one with a lot of confusion around it. Functionally. The only way the only government that had any power to end the war was the Japanese government which was in a position to surrender and the question was when would that happen would have happened later or earlier by summer nineteen, forty, five, it was already clear that the war was militarily lost. President Truman and the US government in general had basically fixed options of what they could do to try and encourage the Japanese government to take that move. There's only two that people usually talk about dropping the atomic bomb or invading the home islands of Japan. Both of those were on the table also having the Soviet Union inducing them to enter the wars of belligerent which happened on August eighth increasing the intensity of firebombing tightening the blockade of foodstuffs into the home islands. and modifying the terms of unconditional surrender to allow Japan to keep the emperor. The interesting thing is all six of those happen Truman pursued all sex and the war ended. It's unclear which ones were determinative. But the point is there wasn't like we had one option or nothing else. The US had plenty of options and exercised actually all of them. On the one level target for the bombs was obviously Japan on another level. Real target was the Soviet Union. How did the Kremlin of you? He Russia Mirror Negga? Second Markle. So. Really, the question here is a small set of people within the Kremlin stolen and his closest advisers and you that there was an atomic bomb project going on in the United States for years they've found that out from spies from Britain from spies in the United States, and they had their own uranium enrichment and bomb development program that was going on at I would say a medium scale What happens after the destruction of Hiroshima is I in absented himself for a few days he went into a depression and didn't. React to any of his advisors and then immediately massively escalated the Soviet development of their own atomic bomb. So they were both caught by surprise and not caught by surprise. It's true that the Americans didn't always think about the Soviet Union as a factor in any decision related to how the war was going to end but they also very strongly, we understood that the key issue was trying to get this the Japanese government to surrender faster because the faster they surrendered the less impact. The Soviet entry in the war would have to how the end game would play out in Asia, my guest, Michael Gordon, and Tashi Hitachi, and we're reflecting on the seventy fifth anniversary of Hiroshima. Tashi. One, hundred fifty thousand atomic bomb survivors still living in Japan. In fact, as a guest of Japan's Ministry of Foreign. Affairs this would have been in September twenty, sixteen I met one of one of the survivors now they're all in education and public law has plied an important part in shaping Japan's post-war Pacifism. Now, as generation dies out, is the role of pessimism in Japanese politics is that diminishing especially in the face of Rausing China Toshi? I don't think the passing of the atomic bomb survivors will diminish the strengths of pacifism in any short-term. The correctly memory of human magazine Japan has been fairly robust and the taken deep roots in popular culture. I can think of a good example that is Japanese animated wartime drama film released just four years ago in two thousand, sixteen cold in this corner of the world. This picture accounts of the wartime life in here she was a smash hit in the box office. Be, atomic bomb survivors will also active in passing down lessons from the world's first nuclear war to the next generation. The city's over here streaming nagy training. Many Japanese Ron Tears as storytellers who share the testimonies are waging victims and a second generation survivors are spearheading efforts for peace unjustice. Well, that brings me to today and really in the last that he is the end of the call was thirty years ago the US. And the Soviets on Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty non stop this was President Bush senior and Gorbachev in Russia in the inside at Union. Then just as it was collapsing now, both agree to significantly reduce their nuclear stockpiles and of course, the updated treaty between Moscow and Washington that expose I. Think it's February Knicks Jeez. So that's just a few days after the next president is warning Michael Do you think it will be resigned. I think that's entirely dependent on the results of the election. Joe. Biden has indicated that he would refine the treaty The trump administration has had many opportunities to re-sign the treaty, but they have not taken advantage of those opportunities yet. Russia's indicated that they're very interested in extending

"Now back on the radio and glad to be here. You know, I'm from Minnesota represented a district here in Minnesota, then ran for the U. S senate here in the in 2020. And I want to tell you I don't know what it is, but everybody thinks Everyone in Minnesota ice fishes. So you run around airport. You're going back and forth to D C right. You're from Minnesota. Ice fish Come. No, no, no, I drink at home. That's what the rest of us do. That's about all we've got to do because of the lockdown. I You know, when we have more time we're gonna talk about the lockdown the way a rush talked about it. This is the greatest assault on American liberty in my lifetime, And I think, perhaps in history what the unconstitutional provisions are campaign actually sued. The governor of Minnesota. Based on privileges and immunities, but I think we probably should've based it on due process. Under the due process clause. You can have a post birth abortion, but you can't go to work or have your kid in school. There's something woefully wrong here, and I will tell you if we don't get this right. Should not be a Republican running for the House, the Senate or the governor's mansion who does not run on three things next cycle. Not only in the lockdown never again on lockdowns, restoring law and order's Orient, locking down law abiding citizens and letting protesters and riders as we did in Minnesota, go free and bail them out. Thanks to Kamila Harris. And finally free and fair elections, so we don't suppress the vote of people who are cheated upon. One more little clip on Russia's the fascination between dogs and cats, and this one's a good one. It's a funny one on well, the funny story about the dogs. Somebody to break. Ask me Hello. Dogs are said Look, you've done golf You've done football you met it was go for the trifecta. And totally tick off the issues only crowd talking about the dogs, All right, funny story about the dogs. Over vacation of dogs with their school. And I got Katherine still away with her family. She stayed on vacation that I got the dogs. I got the dogs with me and Catherine wanted to see and talk to the dogs. So I got my iPhone out. He's got face time. You can make video phone calls, and the camera has to the phone is two cameras. So I put the camera that featured Well, the feature the dogs. I'm looking dogs that camera and I turned the phone around the Katherine's because the dogs could hear her voice. I show her to the dogs on the phone. I know the dogs can actually see an image on the phone, making her voice and they were going nuts. Katherine's Hi, Abby. Hi. Well, wolf wolf in there, running around, going nuts and going, Chris the funniest thing. Eyes. A great story. That is a great guy was the great thing about Rush wasn't it? He could engage the audience while making a point. It wasn't a Johnny one note. He has 1000 imitators that just get on and repeat the talking points, the devoid of a sense of humor devoid of real diversity. That is my dad used to say this a lot. I said, How do you run a business? I grew up in a small business family. And I said, How do you know this? And this? And this is a Jace in order to run a business. You don't have to be the best at any one thing. You have to be second best at everything. And it's really true in a managerial context. Your accountant. Better be the best accountant that accounting your marketing manager or your shop manager. Whatever you better know enough to be second best. So you know what's going on, and Rush was far from second best. He was the best. In a wide array of topics. That made him so listenable. And that is really in so many ways. The key to rush taking a situation like Mikhail Gorbachev and meeting Gore Bischoff turning it into a funny, funny story like this, we're gonna go back to the groovy art of forgotten favorites and we are going to have another Gore Bassam today. Because the drive by media is in fact having one. It's the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the drive by media is out celebrating Mikhail Gorbachev as No. He led It happened as well. Gorbachev made it happen. You know, I met garbage off. It was a George H. W. Bush is 80th birthday. And it was at Reliant Stadium in Houston, and there was a big celebration and I didn't go to the celebration on the field. There was there was a pre bash. In the bowels of the stadium in there, and I went, I showed up for that, and garbage. Trump was there with that bald headed interpreter has been following him around for 30 years. And James Baker was there and what everybody was there and this bald headed guy with garbage truck kept looking at me, and I said This guy can't know who I am A medicine account. Gorbachev. These guys don't speak English has no idea, but they kept looking at me. So finally I would up James Biggers. You know, I'd like to meet Gorbachev I happen to have it was wearing the exact same color gray suit that Gorbachev was worth uncanny. So he he took me over and introduced me and the he induced me to the interpreter. And I heard the interpreter explained a garbage Rove who I wa sare, the nimble Whiskey limbo or something like that, and garbage have smiled and cocked. His head looked at me. We pose for a picture and when, when we posted the picture rush Limbaugh dot com The birthmark. It was on Gorbachev's forehead had gone from his to mine. It ended up on my forehead. You should see it. We put it up there at rush Limbaugh dot com. Anyway. For those of you too young to know I will explain what a Gorby ism is at that point in time. When we get to it. Yeah, well, we're gonna get to it. Next segment. We've got a great clip explaining the history of the famous Rush Limbaugh, Gore, Bassam and it really again applying humor to a serious political point. And that is this absolute fascination, If not idolatry, this fawning over all things former Soviet Union. You know? It's It's like you're gonna believe me or your own eyes when you look at the Democrat party going all the way back to the sixties, but really, since the advent of the squad Hill on Omar here in Minnesota, and you know, presently and received to leave and AOC and all the rest, they're not even they're not even shy about it anymore. They are Socialists..
The Trump-Russia Showdown Over Oil
"Right and then lastly by unleashing up oil fields and fracking in America this president has a weakened Russia more than anyone since Gorbachev left office Russia is a one trick pony all they have is energy they don't nobody buys Russian because Russian laptops all they have is oil and gas in Russia is almost on its knees because of what this president has done to that threat you in that one twenty fourteen second clip have demonstrated that you will sell your soul for a quick Buck because you want to have more book sales hi and America all sorely disappointed in you John Bolton you will disappear from public life the Sooners that interview is dead and your book eventually ends up in the remainders

"How are you? I'm good. Claire. How are you? We lost our dog, Scotty. Back in January, He was given a cat scan before we adopted him and the cats festivities that the captain, that was it. Our forecast put about this place immediately and he never bothered them. Snuggled in love. But this January we found hit illnesses that came on. Suddenly we had to let him go. I said at the time that dog teams Scotty up to the Rainbow Bridge. Now, I don't know if Rush was a fan of the old original Star Trek, but maybe during his last hour rush might have said theme the up, Scotty. And I studied dog was there to meet him. Whether West was a fan or not. I know studies there by his side, Castor. He's not alone. Claire. Thanks so much. And I think your call typifies how close people were to rush you taught you call here to someone you don't know? You talk about someone you've never met as though they were a lifelong family member. And the great thing about rush is he had that unique ability to make everyone feel as though He's their best friend, which he was in so many cases and you exemplify that beautifully. And I appreciate your call 1 802 822882 as the great debate between cats and dogs. I've got a similar story. Only time I ever saw. My dad cry was when we lost our dog. But I also Um, grew up in a family of cats and dogs. They're you know, they're her. Uh, I mean, this was an old time big family. Seven kids. A couple of dollars. Well, one dog, always sometimes, too, and usually a couple of cats. S so this is the old classic post World War to America, which, by the way, is a topic for another program. We ought to be facilitating the ability the families to quite frankly have Kids and and be able to afford to have a family and grow up instead. All we think about his consumerism and importing the latest cheapest gadget while the country where there's a way I'm very, very concerned about this, But regardless The cats ruled the dogs in every scenario. So one, Rush says The cats are smarter. Obviously, he's right, because think about it. You got a dog that could take one chump out of a cat. But the cats buffaloed the dog into thinking I better not We start this one. Cathy used to sit on his back and just just swap at the nose of our of our shepherd, Kali, Big dog. And that dog would ears would go back and it would lie down and that was it. That's pretty smart cat, I guess. Huh? Coming up in a little bit.

Trump threatens to quit Open Skies treaty.
"The scientists see the paper as the first in a series over the next couple of months they plan to put out advice on contact tracing serology an antibody tests and data management. Donald Trump said yesterday that Russian violations. Make it untenable for the US to stay in a treaty that permits thirty plus nations to conduct observation flights over each other's territory trump's announcement comes as the US begins new nuclear control. Talks with the Kremlin aimed at replacing an expiring weapons treaty with a modern and potentially three way accord that brings China into the fold senior administration officials say trump's willingness to leave the open skies treaty is evidence of how prominently arms control. Verification and compliance will feature in the new talks the open skies treaty that governs the unarmed overflights was initially set up to promote trust and divert conflict between the US and Russia. The trump administration informed other members of the treaty that the US plans to pull out in six months which is after the presidential election. The White House also says that imagery collected during the flights can be obtained quickly at less cost from US or commercial satellites the US announcement that it plans to leave. The treaty is expected to upset some members of Congress and European allies which benefit from the imagery collected by open skies flights conducted by the US trump last year pulled out of a nineteen eighty-seven nuclear arms treaty with Russia.

Tear Down This Wall: Tipping Points
"This first episode of a four part series marking the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We examine the conventional wisdom that the I cracks in it appeared a long way away in a ruinous war in Afghanistan malfunctioning nuclear plant in Ukraine. This is the foreign desk. It's partially about the Aghanistan. But it's partially more about the kind of discussions people are having about institutions inside which you weren't supposed to look so the military leterrier was one of those. The military was sacred military defeated the Nazis. The military was the defender of the Soviet order. And suddenly you have very public discussions about that was a little risque at the extensive research. Shaw it was a bizarre situation where Cold War was still going on and foreign governments the governments of the NATO countries that were warning me and people around me on how I should behave and protect ourselves in our own Goldman and I saw somebody. Reading is best German newspaper bid side and I said to my at my partner into Cau- aw look somebody reading side and it was really something extraordinary and immediately drove to British and really really it has become commonplace to compare the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan John in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine to the United States long misadventure in Vietnam which had only ended for years beforehand. Both was exacted. A terrible ribble cost in lives and money abroad both undermined faith in government at home and both ended in humiliation but was the confrontation between the Red Army and Afghan Mujahideen armed with American weapons really as is often suggested the climactic battle of the Cold War. This was Leonard. Leonard Brezhnev's Soviet leader at the time when invading Afghanistan still seemed like a good idea. Would the party today strongly tastes the following principle fully words. I'm evaluates the unfolding situation and in consultation with the government of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan Ghanistan the Soviet leadership taken the following decision which I am officially announcing today. Kalinowski is a professor first of Eastern European studies at the University of Amsterdam and the author of along good by the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan. Tamie picks up the story story in March nineteen seventy-nine there's an uprising in the city of Herat and the Afghanistan's socialist who are in power. Ask them to intervene. Intervene and the and the Soviets think about it and basically say no and if you look at why they say no. It's quite interesting. Because they are quite aware that it's GonNa make relations with the West more difficult it's GonNa make relations with the Soviet Union's allies in the developing world problematic. They're worried about as they put having to fight the Afghan population and so on so they actually reject the idea march. I think what happens. By December is that they lose hope of the the government in Kabul actually being able to control the situation without Soviet help the fact that the communists are sort of killing each other but I think what really worries them is that a CIA can take advantage of the broad background to that of course is they're looking at deteriorating relations relations with the US already they're looking at the revolution in Iran. They're thinking okay you know. The Americans are getting beaten in Iran. They're going to try to look for a way to compensate. They're they're going to do that in Afghanistan so basically I think what happens by December nineteen seventy-nine as they think they have no other choice unlike the US in Vietnam the USA in Afghanistan was not troubled by a free press asking questions but not even the USSR could hide everything forever. We've had this justification for the the last six seven years about why we're in there. We can't just pull out right. We have to explain to people buyer pulling out now. Was it doing damage to the Soviets. Sure they were losing people will and they were spending money on it. But proportional to how large the Soviet military is and the kind of resources that it's used to spending. It's actually fairly small. I I think the bigger issue for Gorbachev one is that it's not improving especially by nineteen eighty six eighty seven. He's convinced that it's not going to get better and to is that. He sees that is an obstacle to better relations with other countries with countries in the Middle East and awesome first and foremost of course the United States. And that's as big a

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
"Reagan today a tribute to the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall it's on a site overlooking the location where president Reagan delivered his legendary speech imploring Mister Gorbachev tear down this wall well that was quite a memory anyway we have our Westwood One news correspondent jazz Henry standing by live in Berlin this morning so jazz good morning to you are actually good afternoon to you or early it's about it's about mid day right now and that was nineteen eighty seven the president Reagan made that speech at the Brandenburg gate two years later not necessarily a direct cause and effect a correlation but two years later the walking down we celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of that to your tomorrow so it would that was a big big celebration the whole world celebrated with the with the German people when that happened but you know then they came to review the reality of reuniting east and West Germany and integrating them into the society of Europe so she was very celebratory van what's it like now sh well people are still happy particularly those who were alive at the time they can contrast what East Germany was like at the time and what it's like now but there a lot of people been born since then and some of them living in the eastern parts of Germany I feel that still yet today the economy is not as vibrant in that part of the country job opportunities perhaps educational opportunities don't match what's that exists in the west some people in the government here are admitting that there were some mistakes made when that they actually unified the east was just sort of brought into the western constitution there's some other things that might have been done differently but say it's hard to completely second gas because compared to many countries around the world be Germany has in you know what might seem a long time were short time depending on your view thirty years brought about quite to impress the reunification so are we listen to your montage that you made for us just a couple of minutes ago and at the end the woman was saying that the people in the east still don't feel I guess equal economically you know to the west is did you find that I've talked to some of people living in the eastern part of the country who formerly lived under the the old government and of course they say you know life is better now that we can travel you know we're not so contained and there's not be a network but foreman's that's one has to worry about the Stasi security service keeping an eye on everyone but they said that in the old west and East Germany there was sort of a collective mindset and neighborhood mindset that it was sort of grew from the better aspects of the communist ideal of people helping each other they say when they became in essence taken over by the west that said you know the capitalist system of every person out for themselves doggy dog what was hard to get used to and a lot of people particularly were sort of mid career at that time had a hard time making the jump of the sort that angle Americal has made a force you she's been chancellor here for fourteen years originally an east German but she's really more the exception than the rule in how well easterners have done but there are signs that slowly the economy salaries and such in the east are improving to up Terry T. with the west but that's still not the case chancellor Merkel of course open wide the the doors of Germany to refugees and a lot of them ended up in Berlin and we have young people the young workers coming from all across Europe in into Berlin so what are the company's able to hire them well they they into at both related and many of them into the eastern part of Germany someone in the in the western parts but she needs to Germany because of the period under communism they didn't become as multicultural as West Germany did West Germany brought in the guest workers from Turkey for instance in the nineteen seventies and so in the east there are people who are feeling you know I should be paid more for the work that I do there should be better opportunities and look there these people who don't look like me being brought into our city to be settled yeah they're probably going to compete for the same jobs and that's led to some dissatisfaction three mentioned the the unveiling or the showing of the statue of Ronald Reagan today what other kinds of celebrations are being planned well there's a big party is scheduled for tomorrow evening at the Brandenburg gate course the Brandenburg gate is where president Kennedy spoke in nineteen sixty three or call each bin ein Berliner speech president Reagan as we mentioned in nineteen eighty seven it's been the center of the city sense the eighteen hundreds of sort of ceremonial center so there will be a big concert there now there's some possibility it might be raining so that I could have it have an impact but as you can imagine that since this is Germany there'll be classical music and this is the evening wears on there will be a lot of like trying to dance music but if everyone were looking to see what sort of crowd might come out for that tree even putting the weather aside but I'm guessing it's probably a larger major going to be an older crowd people who remember the it's just the amazement of what happened November ninth nineteen eighty nine so we still have a lot of American troops in Germany and course all around Europe but in in Germany so are they are they showing up for either out in the streets for this I'm not seen any so far interestingly I was at a government events government sponsored event last night and the culture minister of Germany made up points to talk about how appreciative Germany in particular Germans of of her age work for the American support immediately after the wall fell and it came as a surprise to many people what happened afterward it might have been something short of reunification she said she was saying that they could be some sort of confederation or alliance but she said that president George H.

Book alleges Trump called for shooting immigrants at border
"I was fascinated with this story story of president trump apparently at a meeting now this is according to the hill and the New York Times New New York Times reported this and the hill included it in in on their website as well but president trump suggested having being illegal immigrants shot in their legs during the March meeting with the White House advisers in the Oval Office. Supposedly the The Times report is based on interviews with more than a dozen White House administration officials involved in that week of meetings and apparently this stuff is going to be in some new book called from Michael Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis border wars inside trump's assault on immigration. It comes out on the eighth so next week. It doesn't sound Bassett. All know doesn't doesn't border wars inside trump's assault bolt on immigration assault. Yeah maybe on immigration not illegal immigration mind you so the AIDS told the The Times that trump's suggested to advisers during the Oval Office meeting we should do is we. We should shoot him in the leg to slow amount. Don't I know it's true but it sounds like him doesn't not I I could hear him say like just shoot him. In the leg is what I mean. Yeah just shoot him in the leg would not slow him down. Why can't we we do that. Officials who spoke to the Times also recalled know what's next that often suggested suggested we fortify the border wall with essentially a moat. Oh stocked with snakes and alligators uh-huh. I mean we just we dig. A water filled trench. We'll put some alligators snakes it then if they cross they get eating and and if this is shocking to you to hear me overton window here. It's not like he said. Let's put out there at the border right here and say right land mines or anything like that. He's just saying it's it's very medieval. I mean I don't know if this note. We don't know if this I really would. He said a lot of people are saying he did and it does kind of sound like I'm sure and a moat might be pretty I might a what a front it's been suggested jokingly oh kingly by many sure probably including us but he also apparently wanted the wall electrified with spikes spikes on top pierce human flesh. Maybe oh my bad you. We read the story would advisers told trump. Some of his suggestions were illegal. He got pissed. You're making me look like an idiot. I ran on this. It's my the issue well so there you go some some interesting ideas on how to get a hold of get some control at the border shoot him in the leg. Okay create a moat and fill it with alligators K. or just a liquid electrify the wall and put spikes that compares human flesh at the top of them. That'd be harder party to get over the top. Okay you know it's past ask Democratic Congress. He says that the make sure the fence. This electrified fence is powered by green energy right and then. Maybe they'll be on board. Lord and everybody's happy sounds like a fun read though yeah does it does fun. I don't know I'm not totally on board with it right but again. It's a concept yes. It's a it's a starting place. We haven't Seen No. We're not going to get the mode with the alligators electrified fence and the spikes go through human flesh. Here's an idea though let's do something that's the table. Let's at least put the wall up. Maybe that's what he was doing. These meetings is overton window in them and say okay. We won't all right. We won't shoot him in the threaten this plan lend maybe maybe actually just get a wall fund the wall and we won't have to shoot him in the leg now. You don't fund the wall where to shoot them in the late. Yeah that's right. That's you got three. We days come up with a different plan or we're going forward with the shoot. 'em. At least at least make him think that right. I'm in favor of him doing that. Reagan did the Gorbachev Right. Yep Do that to the wall. We got this star wars system and we can shoot down all all of your missiles so you might as well not even fire a mattis you might as well not even deploy him anymore.

Why Werner Herzog loves cat videos
"Today on studio. Three sixty what energizes the legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog sometimes when I don't know how to order my thoughts, I switched on crazy cat videos and immediately. I'm rejuvenated. We talk a lot about cat videos, the art of narration and his latest movie meeting. Gorbachev. Plus from the first time you heard this song, it was just absolutely mind. Melting. The story behind when doves cry, which prints released prepare to feel old thirty five years ago this week. This is what it sounds like the head on studio. Three sixty right after this. This is scheduled for sixty I'm currently at I'm sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial this first level of guard this Thomas Jefferson's vegetable, I'd like to have the roasted chicken very well done, editing is all about timing. I tried to get a little bit away from the actual subject must get sick of your place, right? Three, sixty with good Anderson. Werner Herzog has made more than sixty movies. They're often about man versus extreme forces, the Amazon jungle in FitzGerald. Oh, active volcanoes in the documentary into the inferno. His latest film meeting, Gorbachev also fits into that frame. It's the story of Mikhail. Gorbachev versus a crumbling political and economic system. Food consensus, Kevin over a six month period last year and the year before Hertzog went to Moscow and interview the very last president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Sekkei bitch. I'm sermon. And the first term and that you probably met wanted to kill you. Hertzog and a co director Andre singer, combined interviews with lots of archival footage to tell the story of the one Soviet leader almost everybody in America, and the west light even adored, and the film is all held together by Herzog signature narration here. His home village is it looks today. It is hard to imagine that from such a godforsaken place in the middle of nowhere, one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century emerged. And when Hertzog is here with me now to talk about meeting Gorbachev, sir. Welcome back to studio. Three six eight thank you. Thank you for having me. So you feel three long conversations with Gorbachev. How did you prepare for those mostly reading I did a lot of homework? I read compensates memoirs Rhoda most excellent biography by William helpmann. Otherwise, I arrived without pain, my hands. I didn't have a catalog of Chris that would rectal down. It was just a conversation from men to men carried on by curiosity. Wave. I was gonna lead me or us. Was unknown the film talks about how Gorbachev is beloved and considered a hero by many Germans, and obviously being a German, a west German at the time, you must have paid keen attention to the Soviet Union at that moment. Sure. And among other things when Germans reunification were somehow abandoned, give him up the real real big thing, about reunification, these it came without bloodshed. It came without violence. Gorbachev allowed peacefully his predecessors would send tanks in and, and suppress the liberation movements of countries like Hungary Poland is terminal. You just name, it chuckle Slovakia, take a Slovak, yo cyst that was attitude of the Soviet Ryan and Gorbachev completely different in his approach and is in west Germany had been separate countries. For essentially your entire life. It just must have seend being a forty odd year old man, having never known anything else impossible that this was never going to happen. Yes, I personally believed I would not see during my lifetime something of that magnitude would take much more time history would be slow, but I was surprised. And when the wall came down in Idi nine and reunification happens, as you say, in the film. So quickly crazily quickly. What was your feeling when I heard about the wall coming down? I was in the southern tip of South America, a mountain, and with five days delay through shortwave radio hurt that the won't had come down, and it's this kind of joy in the shadow of elation, his never left me, I was pleased, given the seriousness of the subject by the touches of humor in this film, like. When they're cutting down ceremonially cutting down the barbed wire between Austria, Hungary, and spend a long time showing this bit of the Austrian nightly news that night I'm going to play that clip. Busy plea for the entire world. I n curtain started to be lifted. However, Austrian evening news was curious about the magnitude of the event retail two minutes. I didn't really metric their lead story was about slugs. It's very funny because they advise you to fill up old with beer in slugs, as lovers of beer would crawl it get drunk and you could harvest them in the morning, then on the miscellaneous much later. So the anchorwoman comes to mention that I am curtain. Being lifted. So it points to that sometimes news completely clueless. In other news, the Cold War is over. Yes. Yes. Do you feel as though humor is, is central to your sensibility, as a filmmaker as a creator, I think this human almost all of my films, and I've been labelled as grim teutonic sort of God knows warrior who, who is determined to risk his life in all all this, all this kind of nonsense. So what you spot it is. There's a lot of human gover of, of course, a lot of human other films. I wanna talk more about your narration, and how you do it. Do you begin with some rough draft? Or do you make the film? I know I the Nori I write the take spontaneously during editing and I know here heft to explain something and I write it down. On incessantly and in the editing room. I have very professional microphone, and I speak the commentaries. Right, then and there while I'm proceeding and sometimes I notice the texts overlaps into the next scene. It's three seconds too long. So I would delete one or two words and rephrase it a little bit in speak again and it would fit. That's amazing. So literally, as you are cutting scenes together, you're coming up with the necessary narration, and recording simultaneous. Yes. Exactly. Is that what I do that extrordinary? Well, I realize it audiences like the way I narrate in not, it's not only my voice. It is a text the context that I create the observation said, I make. So I'm writing the commentaries, and I'm speaking them and ended makes a lot of sense and gives a coherence to films that they would otherwise not. What have? And in his someone there, directing you. You know, saying, hey Werner, let's let's do another take that. No with exception of the editor. He is the only one who would tell me the phrase, doesn't sound right? The grammar is a little bit crooked. Why don't you change? So earth of words, his says to me pronounciation of the word should be different in, in English. So I, I do have helped India seek advice. That's amazing. And also, I'm I'm struck by how demystifying you are of the process. There is nothing. Mysterious about filmmaking. It's just professional work period. Here is a great example of that work from your film, grizzly, man. One of my favorites. This is some of the last football shot by the subject, Timothy Treadwell, a grizzly bear enthusiast. It's a close up of one of his bears, and what haunts me is that in. All the faces of all the bears that trade will ever filmed, I discover no kinship now understanding no mercy. I see only the overwhelming indifference of nature. To me, there's no such thing as a secret world of the bears. And displaying stare speaks only of a half board interest in food, but for Timothy Treadwell despair was a friend, a savior. In a way in that makes film, different and unique I Esa filmmaker heaven ongoing argument with treadmill. Sometimes trade will say something very new agey into how fluffy these Baz I in to hug them, and you have to sing to them and, and here on of sudden night. Chime in say here. I differ with Treadwell in my opinion, wild nature is different. It's chaotic and in dangerous and murderous, not fluffy, like involved, his knee movies. So I just have an argument with him. You didn't always narrate your films, in fact, in your early films. There are other people doing their rations. I believe it was, the, the great ecstasy of would cover Steiner in the seventies that was your first first one. Here's a bit of that finished Pessoa Costa sheaf league in his. Emas. He even so what, what made you decide to start doing that? Forty five years ago. I didn't. Yes, I didn't decide it, it was the signature of TV series all the other films have filmmaker appear in the film and giving the chronically, so right? Not only my voice, head to be in a head to be physically onscreen, as well. I hated the beginning. And, and then I thought when the film was finished I should do at least voice myself I felt uncomfortable but I hit the feeling afterwards, that was something good about it. Steiner's Esther training spoon. Sponsored Fatu got. Wow, your voice was so much higher. You know how Americans feel now about Werner Herzog narrations do Germans here. You're germination think nothing special about that. No. Since I speak own mother tongue. It doesn't really stick out like a sore thumb and insurance, of course. Yes. You'll sense that my first language was Bavarian dialect. It's like let's say Texan, drawl, ereck ignites must come from Texas while he must come from Bavaria, right? The earliest one documentary of yours that I can find that you narrated in English was herdsmen of the sun, which is about a nomadic tribe in the Sahara. This is a clip in the Republic of new Shia. The voter behalf gathered for the annual celebration of care covari towards the end of the rainy season in the month of September tribal meetings are held all over the half desert. Now we hear that we go. Of course, Werner Herzog. That's what he does. But when you first started narrating thirty years ago, was there any pushback from US distributors country Lee say so that was very quick. Aknowledge -ment that audiences feel comfortable and they like the way I make things clear. He really understand what I'm saying. Although I speak with the Nexen with a heavy ex and not as heavy as, for example Kissinger, but that's true. That's true to audiences responded favorably. And that's always a good sign. Your voice is part of the attraction ES, India can tell that it's very easy to make satires and to imitate my voice, you see the internet is full of imposed us. Do you know there's a?

It was basically his decision to head the feeling. This is not a biography uncover of nor is it something that should reflect today's politics because if a had spoken in detail about Putin, we should have spoken in detail about Donald Trump is well, I'm so I'm not placing the name. Well, they had through players who were. Like Ronald Reagan at the time. I do remember that everybody somehow demonized in many countries that I have been in. They kept saying I Ronald Reagan is is trusted mediocre Hollywood actor now he's acting the part of the president. And nobody saw that he must have very shrewd politician, and he was not only an actor. Whether he was great or not doesn't matter. He came from labor unions. He let the Screen Actors Guild for long long time, he was governor of California in so don't miss underestimate regular. That's what I kept saying. Because of the Putin regime. It is easy to look upon Gorbachev's legacy as to have amounted to just more heartbreak. What am I missing to draw that conclusion? Number one. I think you're too much into the narrative of the western media. Take a good look at what Russia's today, and I would advise you travel there and take a good look speak to the people look around. Secondly, I do believe that what governor chopped it in Reagan. It is something that's very badly needed stops the demonization and look beyond the horizon. It was exactly what Gorbachev did together with Ronald Reagan. And it was a time where the coldest war was so called into a stained, drizzly cold. We need to look at the current situation and look beyond the horizon, and then to the right thing Russia is not a danger to the west Russia's not a danger to the west, but political opponents or murdered. You will not drag me into becoming a pundit. But they're evolutions now in the balance of power in the world. And I mean the. Real big worms and don't go into smaller things like Syria. So there's big big things out there. They will emerge, and they will become much more dangerous in Russia would be and the German security advisor of Helmut Kohl determined chancellor. He says in I think rightly so Russia has it's safest Boorda with the west. The west does not pose danger to Russia and Russia doesn't pose a danger for the west either in say that in your film. He said the west poses no danger to Russia. Yes. He didn't say the reverse. That's correct. Yes. But it is meant Russia doesn't want to invade western Europe. Whatever that would be silly to the -ssume that the safest Barda that Russia has a border with the west. The problem of Russia is basically the movement or the. Expansion of NATO, which is moving all the way to the Russian Boorda and over fifty six percent of the population in Russia. Find the expansion of NATO an existential threat what if let's say NATO hit dissolved like the voice OPEC and Russia had promised never to expand. But all of a sudden they start expanding, and they would have all of a sudden military maneuvers two hundred thousand soldiers together with Canadian troops at the board with America three Achraf carry us in Tijuana in Mexico fifty thousand soldiers in let's say Jamaica smoking weed and drinking run, but being there rocket basis in let's say the Bahamas Indian Iceland would America not feel existential threatened. Well, I'm not. Always say drawn. Now, the security situation between US and Russia either. No, it's I'm fantasizing. But it's in a way has relationship with realities because that's what Russia is feeling an existential threat of NATO moving all the way to that. Or you obviously were well grounded in the history of Soviet Union, and particularly with respect to Germany when you walked into that room with Mikhail Gorbachev for the first time, and you also obviously were well grounded in his history.

"And you know, I don't know what the antonyms in Russian is dependent striker.

His great regrets is the chain reaction of secession that led to the dissolution of the USSR. He seems truly scarred. By that in the way, he is. Because in retrospect, he says, it would have been so much better for all partners to stay together. But on a much more loose leash the states of the Soviet Union. And that includes storage kicki zero you just cassock STAN they should have had much much more autonomy in they came a little bit too late with it in my opinion. And I think he's aware of it. The demise of the Soviet Union was inevitable and irrevokable building up. You see when you see footage in my film, more than forty percent of the entire population of three countries, Latvia, Lithuania Estonia, lined up in a human chain. And you see six hundred kilometers or more lining without interruption. And you could tell there was deep wish and will in the people themselves beyond politics beyond daily things. We want to be independent nonetheless in the power vacuum.

I sat down with Herzog to discuss his latest film meeting, Gorbachev I'm not eternally made it always clear to Michelle Gorbachev that he's talking to a poet. Gorbachev is old. I think he's eighty eight eighty eight a bit frail, but he hasn't lost his charm that twinkle in the eye that so mesmerized the west back in the day. Yes. But you are speaking about the twinkie, which is very superficial. But he brought to the west of momentous substance, for example, realignment of the relationships between east and west the Cold War. It's coldest and he connected with Reagan. Nobody would ever believe that such different characters. Like Ronald Reagan. And cuts off would connect and they brought the biggest arms reduction in world history. They defuse the dangerous situation as you said one of the more remarkable aspects of the history of that period was the nature of his western partners. He wasn't doing business in one thousand nine hundred six Jimmy Carter or Peter Paul, and Mary it was Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher who were hard-nosed anti commie hawks. But there's this scene in your film about halfway through. We're Gorbachev seems to chafe at the idea that it was their leadership to deal with him that made all the difference. It was a mutant sort of relationship, including Margaret sets a who was one of the first ones long before he was leader of the Soviet Union to recognize his extraordinary political talents. And then otherwise. Will who won the Cold War garbage of correctly says everybody wanted we gave the signals. This is a new epoch and it's a little bit. Like today. I've got the feeling that the demonization of Russia is a big mistake of the west. Well, hold that thought because I'm not a poet. I'm just to an interviewer, and I'm gonna get that presently.

Well, saw that for example. Hundreds of thousands assembled each Monday, and they would chart in. It's in the film. They were charmed.

Now, one of the report says that a main message that was pushed to African American voters was that it was best to sit out the election to boycott the election. The press turn out, right? And then one example of a fake persona. That was created by the IRA that got a lot of traction is an Instagram account set up with the username of that blacks to Graham, and it had more than three hundred thousand followers. It is worth pointing out that much of the focus up until now has been on Facebook and Twitter. But these researchers are saying that the Russians also use Instagram and other social media platforms. Right, right. One of the things that these reports made clear is that the Russians leveraged every major social media platform Instagram had largely stayed under the radar. That's no longer. The case. These reports say that Instagram was actually a huge part of Russia's efforts online. For example, one of the report says that fake Russian content on Facebook received seventy six point five million engagements on Instagram fake, Russian content earned more than two times as many engagements is that researchers say importantly, looking ahead that the Russians have shifted a lot of their activity to Instagram since the election, which is an important point the Russians are still using social media. Try to influence Americans. That's absolutely, right. And it's a really important point to make that Russians continue to use fake accounts on these platforms for nefarious purposes. So you mentioned that the Senate supplied the data. These researchers used is congress planning to do anything more to stop Russia or any other country from using social media to influence US voters. Well, there's certainly been chatter from lawmakers about possible legislation social media companies would prefer to deal with this without any sort of legislation regulation, of course, one of the reasons that we are talking about this. And this report is out is it puts the public's attention on material online, and with the hope that Americans will be more judicious about what they're engaging with online. That's NPR's. Ryan lucas.

But verify the occasion was the White House signing of the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. The I n f as it's known the treaty bans. Both the US and Russia from having land launched missiles that can fly from three hundred to thirty four hundred miles. Washington says Russia has been cheating on the treaty. And now the US is threatening to pull out that could spell the end of what has been considered one of the most successful, Cold War era, arms, control, treaties, more. We're going to take a few minutes here to lay out what is going on. And why it matters here in the studio to help with that our national security correspondent, David welna? Hi there, Mary Louise and our in house nuclear expert. Jeff Brumfield, welcome to you. Hi, David you start. What is the US beef here? What why does the US wanna pull out? Well, the US says that since the end of the last Bush admin. Station. Russia has been out of compliance with the treaty that Russia has been not only developing but also fielding cruise missiles that are in violation of the treaty and the Obama administration this publicly for the first time four years ago. So this isn't just the Trump administration. Leveling these complaints. This goes back, but President Trump in October said that the US was going to pull out of the treaty. And then earlier this month secretary of state, Mike Pompeo went to Brussels, and he said Russia would have sixty days to come back into compliance with the treaty or the US would begin the formal six-month notification process for pulling out of the treaty. Here's what Tom PEO said Russia admits it's violations and fully and verifiably comes back into compliance. We will of course, welcome. That course of action and just to keep the clock straight here. David Pompeo was talking you said earlier this month he gives Russia sixty days to come back into compliance. So that means the US is looking for something by what February by February for them to come back into compliance. And if they don't by early August, the US would no longer be a party to the treaty and just briefly what does Moscow say today acknowledged that they're cheating on the treaty Moscow. At first denied that they even had

US pullout from nuclear treaty with Russia also targets China
"And let's stay in China. The rulers of which in between opening long bridges are among those attempting to fatherly consequences of America's threatened withdrawal from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty which limits American and Russian short and medium range missiles. One possible reason for America's desire to ditch the treaty signed by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev in one thousand nine hundred seven is that it does not cover China, which has been free to keep developing missile forces which the US is not technically at liberty to counter Linda. Does that strike you as the likely reason that America actually wants out of this that they'd not so much worried about Russia or anymore as they are about China? I think that probably increasingly worried about China as well as the fact that the the Trump administration have issued a few statements where they don't think the Russians are necessarily abiding by the tree tea, but certainly b.'s AVI. China, the new superpower, the fact that this treaty doesn't include China means that China developing missiles, especially land-based missiles is something that the Americans I'm conscious do technically, but the Chinese Ken. And so I think that is one of the motivations why the president has threatened to pull out of this treaty. But there's also I think, practical consideration about the US developed be these missiles, especially intermediate range missiles, which are land based where they can put them in the Asian region is another big topic. In other words, there are countries which may not feel comfortable with China, but may not be willing to lend lend their land to the Americans either if there was an escalation of Misao building, they're going to have to put these missiles somewhere in that region. And I think that's going to be something else that we may well be talking about few months time. Indeed, messy. Does. This raise the fun prospect of a America versus China short and intermediate missile race. That sounds like it has all the hallmarks of doing so. But I, I think is interesting, isn't it to see even some of the reaction in Washington with some Republicans not happy about this. I mean, this was one of Reagan's greatest legacies, this arms reduction treaty, and I'm just watching on the TV last night that footage from nineteen Eighty-three Reagan and Gorbachev sitting there, Nancy, Reagan, I forget Gorbachev's wife's name. You'll always. Yes, they, you know, that sitting Manson was ever come up in a pub quiz not never has. What's the point. And they're sitting chatting, and it's it's an incredible sequence. This footage incredible sequence and the idea that that's kind of being just another thing that Donald Trump kind of unpicked with a common. He's. Point is this one of those things in which it's just probably the kind of thing that any Republican president would have done, but everyone's going about it because it's Donald Trump. Well, maybe and this is the interesting goes back to the bigger question that we've talked about before who's actually who is running America these days. Anyway. I mean, I can imagine someone put a folder in front of him at some point, tried to get into focus on it for more than five seconds and said, we need to do something about this. I can't imagine Donald Trump woke up one morning and suddenly decided it would be a good idea to pull out of the street. I mean, he didn't even know it existed until last week. Very, probably note Linder. If we're trying to be optimistic about this would be the, there'd be any prospect of China being interested in reaching some sort of agreement as even the Soviet Union was willing to do in one thousand nine hundred

"For democracy and russia the five years that he presided over the soviet union he tried to introduce it and that was welcomed at the time by the majority of the population and some public opinion polling still shows that in the abstract russians thinks that democracy is a good idea so on the one hand gorbachev shows that there is hope but on the other hand gorbachev's experience shows that the hope is up against russian traditions of authoritarianism and antiwestern ism bit putin has taken advantage of two bills off his popularity to almost unprecedented heights gorbachev tried to lead his country in a kind of western way civilized way he was willing to change his mind he was willing to listen putin is a reversion to the old ways and he's partly so popular because so many russians have decided from their experience under gorbachev and under yeltsin that they need a strong hand like putin almost as if they themselves left alone with the kind of leadership the gorbachev provided and even yeltsin tried to continue would be lost and that's very saab both for russia and the world uh your own reasons as to why this december relevant now include from peter beakers review of your book which he calls masterly he says the this book should come out now is fortuitous as americans to beat russia's role in the world and in our own political system to understand today's russia it is necessary to understand what happened during gorbachev's time how he opened up hermetically sealed society after seventy years of stifling communist rule but was unable to solve its deeper problems and was ultimately pushed aside by the ambitious and mercurial boris yeltsin and of course putin then to follow which certainly adds to the argument for the timeliness of this book so bill congratulations again on your new biography of gorbachev and thanks for being here tricky remote white peter british group would rgd on board.
