"You're going to get this pay. I actually don't think that's enough right now. I think you'd have to be all a lot more. You'll always hear that. And actually when when you when you read about the vietnam war one of the things that really started to turn the tide of the american public against the vietnam war was the draft. Because all of a sudden it wasn't just you know the the freaking poor redneck from west virginia or the inner city black kid from harlem that was getting shipped off the war. All of a sudden it was like. Oh you're an year from wherever and your your dad is a lawyer. Your data's judge. Your dad is a business owner. And you got a bunch of money and guess what pip. Load up. vote up on the bus because it's time to go get some and that stir as that expanded and normal richer. People started going to war. It was like rich kids. The rich parents started sending their kids off to war. That's problem and that's one of the things that started to push the the the the resistance against the vietnam war because when it was just hey we're sending a bunch of damn poor people. Hey go whatever. And it's not my kid my kids. My kids go into freaking a college next year. He's not going to boot camp he's not going to phnom so i don't care. Yeah it seems like a great idea. let's stop communism over there until little johnny gets freaking called up and then like oh. Maybe not so. I would say from that perspective. That's that that's a good assessment realistic assessment. That if you start saying oh yeah you wanna say you wanna america to cool. Your kid goes people start changing their freaking minds real quick. Factually he doesn't stop there. He's got another step another step. Which is funny because he he starts off by saying this the only thing you need to do but he does have another step another step necessary in this fight to smash the war racket is limited a limited seat plebiscite sorry plebiscite which is a plebiscite is a direct vote. Like it's just vote plebiscite another step necessary in this war in his fight to smashed more racket is the limited plebiscite to determine whether a war should be declared a plebiscite not of all the voters but merely a votes who would be called upon to do the fighting and dying. There wouldn't be very much sense. And having a seventy six year old president of munitions factory or the flat-footed head of an international banking firm or the cross eyed manager of uniform in manufacturing plant. All of whom see see visions of tremendous profits in the event of war voting on whether the nation should go to war not they never would be called upon to shoulder arms to sleep in the trench and to be shot only those who would be called upon to risk their lives for country should have the privilege of voting to determine whether the nation should go to war. There is ample precedent for restricting. The voting to those affected many of our states have restrictions on those permitted vote. In most it is necessary to be able to read and write before you may vote in some. You must own property. It would be a simple matter. Each year for the men of military age to register in their communities as they did in the draft during the world war and be physically examined. Those who could pass and who were therefore to be who would therefore be called upon to bear arms in the event of a war would be eligible to vote in a limited plebiscite. They should be the ones tab the power to decide and not a congress. Few of those few of whose members are within the age and fewer still of whom are in the physical condition to bear arms. Only those who must suffer should have the right to vote there you go and as i said in phnom that kind of worked people said not johnny. He said there was one step. He's introduced to. Here's the third one third step in this business of smashing war racket is to make certain that our military forces are truly forces for defence only at each session of congress. The question whether a whether further naval appropriations comes up. The swivel chair admirals of washington. And they're always a lot of them are very adroit lobbyists and they are smart. They don't shout that we need a lot of battleships. We need a lot of battleships to war on this nation or that mission nation ono first of all they let it be known that america's menaced by a great naval power. Almost any day. These admirals will tell you the great fleet of this supposed enemy will strike suddenly in annihilate one hundred twenty five million people just like that then. They begin to cry for a larger navy for what to fight the enemy. Oh my no oh no for defense purposes only then incidentally they announced maneuvers in the pacific for defense. The pacific is a great big ocean. We have tremendous coastline on a pacific will maneuvers. Be off the coast. Two or three hundred miles. No the maneuvers will be two thousand. Yes perhaps even thirty five hundred miles off the coast. The japanese proud people of course will be pleased beyond expression to see the united states fleet so close to nippon's shores even as please as would be the residents of california where they dimly discern through the morning mist. The japanese fleet playing at war games off los angeles the ships of our navy it can be seen should specifically limited by law be specifically limited by law to within two hundred miles of coastline. Had that been the law of eighteen ninety eight. The may never would've gone to havana harbor. She never would blow ben blown up. There never would have been no war with spain with the attendant loss of life. Two hundred miles ample in the opinion of experts for defense purposes. Our nation cannot start off an offensive warfare. Ships can't go further in two hundred miles off the coastline. Planes might be ready to go. Five hundred miles from the coast for the purpose of reconnaissance and the army should never leave the territorial limits of our nation. Summarize three steps must be taken to smash the war racket one. We must take the profit out of war to we must permit the youth of the land. Who would bear arms to decide whether or not there should be war in three. We must limit our military forces to home defence purposes again. Not great strategic. Plan to sit back and disdain your own a oh you want to project power a little bit you have to piss people off but you definitely want projects empower out there. Were you right now dave. I'm just summarizing what he said. I'm just. I'm spending all his time. Just china appreciate what he saying. Because obviously i'm gonna wait. I know there's a couple more things to read here. I'm gonna. I'm gonna wait to the conclusion but i spent a lot of time in my own brains and i hear what you're saying. I hear what you're saying. Well this is a. There's a well. This is the thing that we have to do what the whole started this thing. Hey hey listen. We spent a trillion dollars totally man in a twenty year war and when we got there the taliban was in control of whatever percentage of the of the country and now we left and they're now going to control hundred percent of the country we spend a trillion dollars. We have thousands of lost lives. We have thousands. More wounded maimed for life. And you have to at least open your mind and say okay. What was this guy talking about. What was he talking about. Because like you said. This isn't some armchair quarterback the guy that fought.

"In and around guantanamo bay to give the appearance of being done by hostile cuban forces such as a landing friendly cubans in uniform over the fence and to quote stage an attack on the base and quote that they could quote start riots near the main gate. They could lob mortar shells from outside the base into the base to damage some of the installations. Think about that. The united states military proposed to attack its own base with explosives. They could send assault teams that says they could sabotage ship starting to fire in fact this is they show power of history in the document says they could create a remember the name incident while the remember. The main incident is the sense in which the united states ship. The main sank in havana. Harbor in nineteen hundred. Starting the spanish american war turned out. It was an accident not an attack but that didn't matter it. Justified are spanish american war and they learned that lesson from history. Pretend that we've been attack. Then the american public will go to war. It gets even more amazing though. It says that quote. We could develop a cuban terror campaign in the miami area or even in washington. Dc that's right. The military proposed to the president and signed it that they would create a terrorist campaign inside this country saying that they could foster attempts on the lives of cuban refugees in the united states even to the extent of wounding and killing them. And here's a quote. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots the arrest of cuban agents and the release of prepared documents. Substantiating cuban involvement would be helpful and projecting the idea that cuba was responsible. That's essentially terrorism by the united states military and it gets even worse. The document goes on to say that they could hijack civil airliners that they could create an incident in which a chartered airliner and route from the us to save venezuela could be shot down the passengers. The document says quote could be a group of college students off on a holiday and quote remember the united states military wrote this down and signed it in which they proposed to kill american civilians and blame it on cuba. That's where we were during before and after the cuban missile crisis that the united states military was so power mad and wanted to invade cuba. So much that it knew it could easily manipulate the minds of the american people into thinking the cubans had done it by staging fake terrorist attacks against the united states and they signed it. They were that certain so. This is not a theory. This is a fact. The evidence is incontrovertible east is to google search and find this document operation northwards and so. I asked my students to think about that. Think about what power does unchecked. Power is something we need to be very careful about. The united states is a very powerful country in that can be very good. Were that can be a threat to us. As well and i asked him this essay. If you think the united states military was confident that they could pull this off in nineteen sixty. Do you think they're any worse at doing it today. Thanks for listening to his latest. Podcast from history though joe and i certainly hope that you'll continue to subscribe and spread the word to support the work.

"Last year my goal was to do a segment of your next dive where i featured key largo dive mecca here in the united states. I wanted to time this segment for just after we returned from key. Largo in april of two thousand and twenty. Well we all know how that turned out. We did not get there and again in two thousand and twenty one. We were not able to plan out an excursion as we would have hoped to. Two thousand and twenty two however is on the horizon. But i didn't wanna wait any longer to talk about key largo so here we go with your next dive where we travel to key largo florida. I think i've mentioned it before here on the podcast that my first is after getting a certification where with it's a dive located at the marriott hotel on the overland highway in key largo and it was fantastic. How about your first real dive being on a real historic wreck the city of washington a ship that was in havana harbor when the us main exploded and sank now. There are many reasons to choose key largo as your dive destination. Especially if you live in the eastern part of the united states first off. It's easy to get to. You can either fly into fort lauderdale. Which is my preferred airport. As i find it logistically navigate or miami which is a little closer to key Key largo you just hop in your rental car. That is if you can find one these days and head on down now. Let's talk a little bit about the dive. Operators in key largo as you can imagine being to dive. Mecca that it is. There are quite a number of operators to choose from it's a dive at the marriott is no longer operating but i will talk about two of the operators. I'm familiar with. They are horizon divers and rainbow reef now right after only a couple of months. After i did that first trip to key largo i returned and at that time. I drove with horizon divers back. Then they were located in marina at mile marker one hundred of the overseas highway and that was right next to the courtyard by marriott. Which at the time was a radison. It was very convenient to roll out of bed. Get a quick bite to eat and stroll over to the dive. Shot horizon has moved however and they are now located on the overseas highway at mile marker. One oh six. That's the dive shop in a retail store. Their boats are located about a half a mile up the road next to a place called shipwrecks oceanside now rainbow reef has taken over the old horizon diver facility at the mile marker one hundred marina additionally they also bought out ocean divers on the other side of the marina and have quite a large operation. Now the last time we were in key largo. We stayed at the courtyard and dove with horizon. We were going to go back to key. Largo in two thousand twenty and planned to die with rainbow reef. We didn't make it down there now. If you're looking to do more technical diving then. I think horizon divers maybe a better choice for the shallow reefs that i like rainbow reef might be a good option as they have those big forty six foot newton dive boats now. I have to admit that. I've never done the deeper wrecks down there like spiegel grove. Where the dwayne bid. But i love the shallow wrecks like the city of washington. The hanan bell. Also known as mike's wreck and especially the ben would. They are teeming with fish life and are great places to do fish identification and surveys. You can also experience of great dives on elbow reef molasses reef and french reef another great shallow dive through the book spurring grove. Karl is christ of the abyss. Dry rocks you can grit some great photo opportunities there. The water temperatures in key largo range from the mid seventies in the winter months to the mid eighties in the peak of the summer. When i dove in april of two thousand and nineteen. I was pretty comfortable on the shallow reefs with my three millimeter wetsuit. Only wanna do to morning dives. You can free up your afternoons for some topside adventures. A trip to reef headquarters Is interesting or you can take a tour of the coral restoration foundation and just down. The road is the history of diving museum in l. morada. I was really looking forward to getting to the museum last year and hope that i can make it down there next april. Talk about the dining. While if you're staying at the courtyard on the marina you don't have to get in your car and drive someplace you can just scroll stroll over skippers doc right on the marina. They have some great conch chowder. There and if you want a burger or some pub food than walk a little bit further down to dr sharpies shark bite grill. You'll probably run into some of the dive staff there hanging out now. Another great place to eat is the pilot house and that's located right near the coral restoration foundation very close by and and if you're in the mood for pizza then upper crust pizza at mile marker one zero one point six. Just make sure it's not. Wednesday is their closed. We made that mistake. So as i wrap up this segment. If you've been diving in key largo. I hope that you will agree that it is really a cool place to dive. And if you've never been there. I would encourage you to consider putting a trip there on your counter. I regret having taken fourteen years between visits. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.

"Welcome comment from your listeners Do send your thoughts to Mia Denny in front lines. Freedom back on or doing on Facebook. Hey, Skip, What's the first one? Marty wrote. Occasionally I listen to your show on the Seattle affiliate as I do a little reloading in my garage. I like this guy already. Today. I caught the last half of the show where you were discussing an armed citizens event. Always him. Amused when people speak of firearms used and the legalities of such as most of the time they get it wrong. I was pleased to hear absolutely the correct advice coming from you. Carry a gun, always and on your person. I'd like to take credit for this. But that was you saying that Skip, so I guess I gotta salute you for this one. Well, thanks, Colonel. But you know the old blind squirrel thing, everyone swell. I found you not do Well, Thank you, Marty. We agree on this. Certainly. Gina Navy vet laughed when you said Ground Hog Day was your favorite holiday? Why is it Jeanne. I consider Valentine's Day to be a commercial or Hallmark holiday. I don't like it, but my wonderful wife deserve flowers and gifts. So I came up with ground talk today as a substitute. She's retired now. But back when she was teaching, she got to explain to her peers why she got flowers delivered to the school on ground, hogs say. Oh, and flowers are cheaper on ground talk today than they are on Valentine's Day. Well, I think that's a great idea. I might actually check that out. Chocolate covered ground hog. Who That sounds? It sounds maybe, like I shouldn't do that. Check with your wife. Now It's time for military history. Take us there. Skip on 16, February 18 04 during the first Barbary War. Attendant Stephen Decatur led a military mission that British Admiral Horatio Nelson called the most daring act of the age. In June, 18 1 President Thomas Jefferson ordered navy vessels to the Mediterranean in protest of continuing raids against US ships by pirates from the Barbary States. Morocco, Algeria, Tunis and triple attain eah. American sailors were often abducted, along with the captured booty and ransom back for huge amounts. After two years of minor confrontations. Action began in June 18 or three when a small U. S force attack Tripoli Harbor and present day Libya. In October, 18 or three US Riggott Philadelphia ran aground near Tripoli and was captured by triple attend gunboats. We feared that the well constructed warship would be both a forward will addition to the Triple A time Navy and a model for future frigates. Going to deprive the Pirates of disadvantage. Lieutenant Decatur let a daring expedition into Tripoli Harbor to destroy the vessel on February 16 18 04. After disguising his man is multi sailors. Decatur's force of 74 men sailed into Tripoli harbor on a small ship. The Americans approached the USS Philadelphia without drawing fire from the Tripoli shore guns, boarded the ship and attacked his triple attend crew. After setting fire to the frigate Decatur and his men escaped without the loss of a single American. The Philadelphia exploded when the fire got to its gunpowder reserved six months later, the K to return to Tripoli harbor as part of a larger American offensive and emerge as a hero again during the so called battle of the gunboats. Naval battle that's all hand to hand combat between the Americans and the triple accounts. I'm glad I wasn't there for that one. On 15 February 18 98, a massive explosion of unknown origin sank the battleship USS Maine and Cuba's Havana harbor, killing 260 of the about 400 Americans Crew aboard. Ostensibly our friendly visit. The main had been sent to Cuba to protect American interests after rebellion against Spanish rule broke out in Havana In January, a naval Court of inquiry ruled in March. The ship was blown up by a mine without directly blaming Spain. Much of Congress and the majority of American people have little doubt that Spain was responsible and called for war. Subsequent diplomatic failures to resolve the matter, coupled with US indignation over Spain's brutal suppression of the Cuban rebellion, and continued losses to American investment, lead to an outbreak of the Spanish American War that April Within three months, We have decisively defeated Spanish forces on land and sea and in August and Armistice altered the fighting on December 12 18 98. The Treaty of Paris was signed, officially ending the Spanish American War and granting the US its first overseas empire. With the seating of former Spanish possessions such as Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines. 1976 American naval investigators concluded the mine explosion was likely caused by a fire that ignited the ammunition stocks, not by a Spanish mind or sabotage. 19 February 1945 during World War two Operation Detachment The Marines invasion of E O. Jima was launched. Uwajima was a barren Pacific island guarded by Japanese artillery. But to us it was prime real estate on which to build airfields. The launch bombing raids into Japan. Only 660 miles away. We began applying pressure to the Japanese defense in February. 1944 when B. 24 b 25 bombers raided the island for 74 days. Was the longest pre invasion bombardment of the war necessary because of the extent to which the Japanese fortified the island above and below ground, including a network of caves. Underwater demolition teams. Frogman were dispatched just before the actual invasion. When the Japanese fired on the frogman. They gave away many of their secret gun positions. The amphibious landings of Marines began the morning of February, 19. As the Marines made their way into the island. Seven Japanese battalions opened fire on them. By evening over 550 Marines were dead and over 1800 wounded to capture a Mount Suribachi, the highest point of the island and bastion of the Japanese defense took four more days and many more casualties. In the American flag was finally raised on Uwajima. The memorable image was captured in a famous photograph that later won the Pulitzer Prize. And that's military history for today, Skip it's time for the Armed America report. Take us there, brother. All of us here in front legs of freedom. What our listeners to get trained to get armed in that order. We fully support the right to keep him burns for all law abiding families, and we encourage you to find out about the laws governing use of deadly force in your state and follow them to the letter..

And I want to use games for that is a required course star need the admiral that will truth feeling north pineapples. And he has a picture of the U. S to work with us. You know, I'm sure that that one. Yes, okay. Which was a Navy ship that sank in Havana Harbor and 8 98 courses without place astonish American War. Now William Randall and Joseph Pulitzer. What? The newspaper starting days. Yellow tryingto listen, look stuff up. They coined the word they used back then was Spanish terrorist responsible for starting the war, which caused many deaths. Maybe a proclaimed that the external explosion that's something ship, um was was due to on external explosion. When the ship was salvaged by the news to be buried a cleat. Discovered with internal explosion was the boy with Terry. Let me ask you this, But here's the situation now in these newspapers, and I have heard the same story that you just related Was it the editorial sections that were, you know, advocating. Let's go to war with the Spanish. Let's get the Philippines. Let's get Cuba all of that, Or was it in the reporting? Other words, did they say We have concrete evidence that the the Cubans the Spanish bomb the main and sank the main and that's why we're going to war. Or did they? Because of what had happened? Suggested in the editorial parts of those papers. I don't know the answer to this too, You know. But apparently apparently the information was not corrupt. Whoever whether it came from the editorial side, whether it came from the papers just drumming up, Ben, I don't know, but that's my point. I want to talk to him. DeAndre take this story. I have no idea what happened. I've listened to so many reports, and I just leapt out by the prosecutor leaked out by his his defensive lines. You know, you just have to wait and see and people have come down. I heard on your station that he hung up on a defective that made it sound like he was running for his life. On Then we we've got no, that didn't happen that he was being blackmailed and why we've gotten paid. Or, uh, you know other people on DH, So my point is, I think we should just wait. People are cynical, Proven guilty on DH, You know just one quick doors on the previous caller. I think the media diversity that plays a critical role in allowing people could find there only. We think that expresses their own view on how they see the world. It does. It does very good. Yeah, it does. But see, that's the danger. I think if we just look at the media sources that reflect our own point of view. We're going to live in a bubble and information is going to be reinforced, and we're just going to be convinced that I'm right. I'm right. I'm right. And that's that's That's not right. You know? I think you have to hear it from all sources. If you think the times is left of centre and the post is right of center Should read them both and get accounts of political situations from both and make up your own mind, as opposed to this paper is right. That paper is wrong here. Both sides and I would say, even though I may lean toward the times that they get things wrong, and they admit that they get things wrong, and there's sometimes when I read something in the post and I go Yeah. That's right. The time should be saying that, you know, so I think you really owe it to yourself if you really want to be educated and on top of events. To get both sides of the story and not to just read one paper. Not they have that silo that bubble. You know, it's called confirmation bias. Where, if all you want to read or people who agree with you You're going to have a closed mind even if you think you're on the right And you think you have an open mind. Your mind is closed because you don't hear the other side. Let's go. Teo Tom in North Brunswick, you're on the Phantom. Good morning, Richard. How's it going? I just turned waiting on. I know that. You know what it is Richard. In this country, everybody's all bent out of shape, and some people can say whatever they want. It's okay if you can't I mean, you know what bothers me now again? My point Everybody demonized the police and make it a political party. Won't that be fun? Police? That's ridiculous, and he can't say that because you call races. Well, let me correct you, though. There isn't a political party. There are factions of a party. They want to do that. Okay. I mean, it's It's like the extreme right extreme left. They don't speak for the mainstream of the party. So there are extremists on the left that wanted to fund the police. You're right. But that's what bothers me because you can't speak up by notices sports station. I tried to avoid all the time. You want to talk about the match, but you know, it's been a very hard Yeah. It's really been a tough year, and I just want people calm down and you know things should start getting better. You know, Richard's another caller. I didn't even I didn't even know about the second, the ex running second base. I think it's ridiculous. I hope they don't carry it over the next year. Just a one year, you know for this year and I tried, but how are they going to keep on base percentage is all that I mean, you have to earn your way on base. That's one thing I like about having good morning. Yeah, well, I don't think again. I don't know the verb iager of the rules, but I don't think you're going to give the guy Who hit last in the previous inning. Ah, boost like he had a double or increases on base percentage. Because of that. How do you How do you deal with the run batted in? You know, do you say Well, we knocked this guy in, but he was already on second base, and he was awarded second base. But he didn't really earn it. I would assume you'd have to say, Well, the guy knocked him in whether you know he's on second base because he earned it or because he was given it. You have to give the r B I to the guy that knocked them in right. Does the guy get credit for a run scored? You know, is another issue. Well, yeah, He was the guy on base who scored the run. So does he get credit for a run? Scored? I would think not. And if he doesn't there will be a disparity between the number of runs scored and the number of people who get run scored. So it's a statistical Variation that will have to be hashed out by greater minds than mine. Maybe Eddie Colman can figure it out. He'll be up next talking Mets on the fan. Did you know Geico's now offering an extra 15%? Somewhere out there, There's a man on a park bench, eating his 5/100 PB and J. He has no idea. Papa John's has new pop ideas that.

Not much President Trump, which is what reporters did after he finished a long call with Russian president flat. Amir putin. He is not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela other than he'd like to see something positive happen for Venezuela. That sounds different from what secretary of state Mike Pompeo said Tuesday after the US lobbied hard for regime change in Venezuela. Peyot told CNN the Venezuelan president was this close to flying off to Havana had an airplane on the tarmac. He was ready to leave this morning as we understand it and the Russians indicated he should stay the Russian government says that's false to understand what's really going on between Russia and Venezuela. We called up Matthew Jansky at the Wilson center. Nncholas Maduro who took over power for shabas has been in kind of a slow rolling train wreck of an economic crisis. And so the single big. Step. Russia has taken has been to basically float the regime to give the regime the financing that it needs to pay public servants to the extent that it did. And of course, to pay feed clothe house the military, which is really the core of support for the regime all of that has cost Russia money but in effect Russia receives in exchange control over Venezuela's energy assets. Which is something of great interest to an energy power like Russia beyond that. Of course, Russia has an ongoing political relationship with the anti Washington camp in Latin America. So you've talked about the financial investments that kind of economic connection between these two countries have a bigger strategic reason to stay in Madore camp. I think Russia's strategy here. The geopolitical perspective is far more reactive than it is proactive where Russia says we don't like the potential economic fallout of a regime change in Venezuela. We would lose our property, but we also don't like the idea that the United States gets to run the table. We look at the precedent of American backed regime change all around the world going back to Costa VO Ukraine, Kirghistan, STAN, very close to home in the former Soviet region the Middle East and all throughout Latin American we say were drawing a line under it it shall not happen again here in Venezuela. But of course, Russia's ability to impact that is more limited than it would be closer to their borders. What do you think it would take to persuade Russia to withdraw support for nNcholas Maduro? We'll they're already. Some indications that in the senior level conversations between us and Russian officials. There have been some conversations about what assurances are required. The problem is you run headlong into the total dysfunction distrust that characterizes US Russian relations today, and so two imagine that suddenly a deal that's based on trust where Washington gives or brokers some assurances from the opposition that Russia will get to keep its property in exchange for which Russia stands down and stops backing Madero to imagine that that is actually possible. Now, I think it's a stretch. What are the implications of that? I mean, the US has repeatedly said all options are on the table. How far would Russia go to keep into raw power sitting here where we are? Now, it's easy for me to say, oh, look the Russian ability to go in on the ground is much less than what it was in Syria much less than what it has been in the Eurasian region in the post Soviet space. But we don't know what will happen on the ground tomorrow or the day. After their any number of areas. I could spin out including large scale bloodshed where it would become very unpredictable who would come out on top. And in that type of scenario the Russian factor is really non trivial they have in fact sent troops advisers and very significant military material. So even if they don't intend to wage a major long-term military campaign. Their intervention is quite significant. Matthew Jansky is director of the Wilson centers Kenan institute.

"Back with Jack Harris. And it was on this day in history on March twenty eighth eighteen ninety eight survivors of the battleship. Maine explosion arrived in port Tampa from Havana harbor, and this is what got us involved in the Spanish American war. The fact that they blew up our battleship, Maine. When the Cubans were trying to break off with Spain at that time, and it led to the Spanish American war which had contact here in Tampa as well. It was a ten week war that ended with the eighteen ninety eight treaty of Paris and gave us temporary control of Cuba and the ownership of Puerto Rico and Guam and the Philippine islands. But of course, the real connection here with Tampa was teddy Roosevelt and the rough riders they trained down here. They left with the port of Tampa reporter Tampa one where it is today. It's down.

But it's down on the lower end of the peninsula, and you can see the remnants of the port, and there used to be hotel there and everything, but of course. He stayed they trained the rough riders in the area. That's now university of Tampa he stayed at the Tampa hotel, then which again is now UT, but that had a big big connection with us and it began with the bombing of the battleship Maine or the explosion of the battleship, Maine and their survivors coming here, and then teddy Roosevelt and the rough riders and horseshoe.
