Fresh update on "isis" discussed on Chris Plante

"See, LeBron James doesn't mind that slaves are making his $250 shoes. That cell, you know, so people can shoot each other over them in Chicago. That's fine. They're made by slaves. He's I think he would say probably that he's anti slavery, except when it comes to putting money in his bank account that he's all for slavery in the modern age. Now he's angry about slavery centuries ago because it might have had some effect on his life for his family. But When it comes to Ah, slavery today under the hob nailed boots of communism. Well. LeBron James and some of the other people. United States air Just fine with the Chinese were doing. They're Communists. They're communists, Speaking of the lunatics and communists, all the crazy people There's a a thing called radical Islam. Perhaps you've heard of it. Isis and Al Qaeda. They murder everybody in the name of Allah, and that's kind of a problem. The left. They don't really have a big problem because human life is not one of their things. Here's the headline from Courthouse News. Italy seizes Isis made methe That's methamphetamine, the drug worth one billion euros, that's more than $1 billion. Rome Agence France Presse has the story. Italian police on Wednesday said they had seized 14 tons of methamphetamines. Made by the Islamic state Group in Syria, calling it the biggest seizure of such drugs in the world. The drug in the form of around 84 million Captagon tablets hidden inside industrial goods and containers was worth about 1.12 billion American dollars and intended to be sold in the European market to finance terrorism. Well, of course, that's that's theirjob. That's their role in our society, the finance police of Naples, Italy, said in a statement. We know that Islamic state forces finances rather its terrorist activities, mainly by trafficking trafficking drugs made in Syria. The Taliban been doing this river to the poppy fields on the hashish from the old days. But the poppies much more lucrative. Naturally, it goes to heroin and all that good stuff, and the black turn on big industry for the radical Islamists has been for a long, long time. The bearded loans from a medieval hell And so a couple of new stories making their way rather, this is an important one Also Yesterday. The numbers came out having to do with guns, sales in the United States of America and another record broken another record and gun sales. And the answer to the question is the question is well, why The answer is Democrats, not the Democrats are buying guns, but that Democrat mobs are burning cities and looting and terrorizing people and Democrat George Sarah's politicians are threatening to prosecute Americans were defending themselves, their family families and their properties. So we don't trust many millions of us. Don't trust the state at all anymore. We don't trust the city. We don't trust the federal government. We don't trust the FBI. We don't trust the intelligence apparatus. We don't trust the IRS, which Barack Obama used against his political enemies for the first time in history that we know of. Richard Nixon talked about it for a minute. Barack Obama actually did it and it helped him in the 2012 election, where he won reelection, and we don't trust the local police to come to our aid because local place have been gutted by Democrat politicians and big cities all over the country. And I can't expect police officers to be putting themselves in harm's way for people that would lynch them moments later, and you have no backing from your political leadership, which is corrupt and so often and so many cases From the police Department leadership as well..

In Defense of Wet Markets

"I mean any of this. Had you imagined that markets would be at the center of kind of global controversy. I did not in fact I had planned on being a spectator like everyone else in reading about what was going on and I had an interest in what was happening in the public health level and was surprised when people started talking about what markets and making comments about Chinese Diet's and as someone who's lived in Asia and is interested in in markets. I took an interest in the story so just basic terminology. What is a wet market? Yeah there's so this question of what is what market actually is important. Because there's a lot of confusion about that in the news about it. The term wet market originated in Asia in Hong Kong and Singapore and it was used to distinguish wet markets from dry markets markets. Where they sell packaged goods durable goods. A good example would be the textile markets. You'll find in a lot of Asian cities. A wet market is a place where you sell fresh produce meat fish and seafood. And it's called the wet market because often they are wet One of the ways that these markets clean down all of them. Some of them is that they would hose down the floor. And so that's one reason why it's wet. Also the fish and seafood markets often isis used for packing them. And so that also okay sales. So I'm just I'm just being macabre. It's not wet because it's drenched in the blood of you know of chickens or something. It's it's wet because of is from C. Food and from washing it afterwards. Exactly and actually one of the confusions about these wet markets is that they don't all have live animals. It's very uncommon for them to have wildlife animals and less common for those to be exotic wildlife animals. One of the things. I always make a point here. In the United States talking to people about what markets is that this is actually a normal way for people to get food in Asia in Europe In most places outside of the United States and people don't do one stop shop shopping at a supermarket at. It's more common for them to go every couple of days they WANNA get fresh cheap food and the best places do that are often these local vendors. It's an amazing conversation. Imagine a world in which not. Everything is bought at a win. Dixie imagine a world where not. Everything is packaged sanitize in Saran wrap. That's that's the other thing. Is it even one hundred percent certain that we know that wet markets were the the beginning point of this pandemic? That's a great question. Actually 'em so the reason there is all of this. Interesting markets is because there is a a a wet market Hunan Seafood Wholesale Market in the city of Wuhan had a bunch of people who were among the first that China identified as testing positive for the virus. Now since then alternative. Hypotheses have come out one of them. There is a lab that studied other viruses. Some people speculated it might have accidentally got out most scientists. Say this is probably unlikely. But it's a possibility. I also think you can't rule out the possibility of habitat encouraging their colonies of bats near near the cities. And it's possible that people had moved into the those environments and got an expose that way so there's a lot of uncertainty about where it might have come from. I think one of the reasons why this story as circulated is because pandemic win. These kinds of threats are coming. It's really common for people to want to look for some way to say that this is not going to affect me so they very quickly looked for some evidence that this is because of some other things from other people and so people looked at the United States and in Europe said. Oh it's these wet markets. It's weird bizarre Chinese habits with food. They eat. This isn't us and it was a way to sort of scapegoat. Their anxieties at the danger. In this of course is that it causes people to ignore out their own cultures. Have these risks also causes not to take at measures to protect themselves from the epidemic in so many places were slow to respond to Africa in our own country? I think you'd mentioned lay all the famous food market in the center of Paris as an example of of how we have lost touch with With this mode of shopping as city urban planners have come through the gentrify and kind of clear out the the messy noisy organic chaos that any great market necessarily includes. What have we lost here in the West in moving away from this style of shopping and and and eating you lose that sense of community for the family businesses? They can't live elsewhere often. They live near where these markets are. And it's not practical for them to to move their stand to the new markets and so often the end of those family businesses food markets are deeply integrated into the local communities. And that's one thing that gets lost another thing that gets losses. I think in consumers in especially in the United States but you can see this happening in Europe as well lose a sense of where their food comes from so in the past the the wet market. The food market would have been At the entry point of cities would have been at ports river ways. The food would have been there at if they had live animals. People have seen the animals that they didn't they at least would have seen you know the the animal carcass and had a sense of where the what what the food and the meat was coming from as it gets moved backstage outside cities like the way we haven't the United States people who are seeing package wrapped foods and they don't have a sense of where that food is coming from and it often these moves because they're pushed by the city. They often favor as certain companies often bigger companies over the smaller smaller vendors interest so it also contributes to to that change through a long. You know a century long battle for PREMACY IN TERMS OF SHOPPING HABITS. Do you do you think. Wet markets will survive. Are we doomed to kind of a corporate Supermarket Culture. You know throughout the world. I hope wet market culture survives. I also think there's an ass I think there is a growth and supermarkets in Asia. And I'm sure that after this crisis they will probably be more successful than a lot of these Margaret. Because THEY'RE LARGER COMPANIES. They have kind of cash reserves to handle the kind of crisis. They're more likely to take their business online. So even in China has been a growth in online shopping and they're probably going to capitalize off the concern about safety in wet markets and the perception. That if you package food and you processed food it's safer and I say perception because again. There are plenty of outbreaks in the United States. That we've had in terms of packaged produce or in terms of meat that can be traced back to our EILLY industrial system. So it's not. It's not unique to wet markets that said. I hope that what markets will continue in there. Some sort of irony in that. There is a growth in interest in these kinds of markets. They're popular with tourists. You can see this hike place in Seattle so the popular tourist. Because it's Kinda more. It seemed to be a romantic authentic way of getting a sense of local food culture. There's a lot of interest in farmers markets in the United States because people want to have a more connection to the people actually produce food right. I think even though the big story looks like the rise of supermarkets and disappearance of these markets. I think there will be a continuous of them.

Supporting Women Leaders

"The share of women in the House and Senate has increased over time. But it's still well below the share of women in the US population. And if you dig deeper. Congress looks even less representatives women of color make up eighteen percent of the US population but before the two thousand eighteen midterms the accounted for just seven percent of Congress and LGBT women. Make up about two point five percent of the US population but there are only two openly lgbt women in Congress that's less than one percent even with the recent wins by women candidates in the two thousand eighteen midterms. There's still a long way to go before. They're fully represented. I look at someone like just send our during the prime minister in New Zealand. I the way that she dealt with the terrorist attack on her country. Yeah the way that she wouldn't name the terrorists that was you know. She's amazing. Amazing. We will not talk about their names and then also the way that she's dealing with this crisis she is incredibly humble and that and just real like you really feel like she's telling you the truth this authenticity. Just I think is is one of her great strengths and I think just very clear. Nobody panicked. This is what we're going to do and we're going to do better for. I think she's really good also at hope and inspiration which people need people made in times like best. They need to know. We're all in this together and we're going to get back and we can do this and done things like this before we've done things that have been harder than before. Did you see that? The princess in Sweden actually took an online nursing class and entered into the frontline fighting this pandemic. It's the most amazing thing I was like. This is brilliant. She's a princess and she was like Nope. I'm going to take an online class and I'm going to really make a difference and it's just spectacular. The majority of frontline healthcare workers around the world. Are Women. Yeah actually in China. I think the numbers like ninety percent methods. And then there's also that stat that the country is that have been least hit as far as numbers go with Kobe. Nineteen have women leadership. Yeah so I'm wondering if you could shed a little light on how the challenges women face around the globe are maybe similar or different. Well certainly you've been a huge champion around Combating Violence Against Women and sexual assault and harassment. And that is in my mind. The biggest challenge women face I. Yeah globally there is no country no community no religion no social economic background of women anywhere on Earth who are not affected by gender based violence. That's just full stop. That is the only issue that seems to get worse. Not Better over time right. We're going to get more. Women elected to political office. More women are going to start and grow business. People are going to see. Oh Wow this is great for the economy okay. Yes let's keep funding. You can see steps forward on many of these issues but on violence against women. I mean the harder hit. Humanity is the deeper violence against women growth. Right now with this crisis in China triple. They had triple the cases really at the epicenter of Code. They had triple A. Cases of domestic violence in the height. They're of the virus and that is not a winston. It is a fact that when people lose their jobs and anxiety and stress is running high. That will be my own skin for that. There will be domestic violence. Bounce GonNa Children as well and then of course you add to that. Being locked down with an abuser or higher. Yeah it's horrifying. Yeah so to me. I mean that's that is the biggest issue and of course it takes different forms in different places you know in the DRC have rape as a weapon of war and other countries ravaged by war like Syria or Iraq in places like Afghanistan. You have girls being hung just because they're girls girls being burned with acid late certainly by strangers by partners by boyfriends acquaintances college. Campus Violence Sexual violence child marriage. Honor Crimes Cream genital mutilation. It takes on a different look in different places but we run. Something called an emergency assistance. Fund FOR EXTREME FORMS OF GENDER based violence is called Voices Against Violence Fund. And we will open up the fund and literally the cases that it's small bits of money that we can get out the door within twenty four to forty eight hours to quickly help a woman get back on her feet. Nadia Murad. Who is the is eating woman who escaped Isis in Iraq? Acting twenty fourteen. She was actually one of the first people to receive one of these. Just very quick fusions of financial support to help her family and she get healthcare relocation. You know her brothers had been killed. Most of her family was killed. The bill back something and I'm allowed to tell her story because she tells her story and obviously winning a Nobel peace prize a number of years later for suing Isis. But the fun that we continue to run at a number of cases is just through the roof and we you know quite frankly. We need more money to fund. Yeah believe me I would rather be preventing these Reno. And why should we were throwing money at a problem rather than trying to get it a solution but we're doing both let me ask you this. The numbers are just staggering. But do the numbers go down when women have power. I'm thinking about just even in the United States and domestic violence and violence against women and we have some really incredible women that are fighting in Congress and Senate and yet these numbers are still mind blowing. You know we fight so hard to get a seat at the table and then I'm wondering. Do you see changes within the community. Do you see that numbers go down. What is the tangible evidence of that? This is this is shifting or changing. Well certainly I think when the economy is strong right when other things are stable. That is certainly better. But that shouldn't have to be the case. Things be better never should be that humanity. I think we're not challenges. Honestly with violence against women is what I would call. One of the women leaders will work with called the silent. Majority silent majority is the majority of men who are good and who believed that bounced. Women should never stand but they don't do anything about it I well. I don't know anybody. You know one that. Maybe they don't know enough about it. They don't think there's a place for them to be part of the fight or minimal. And I think it's about. How do we engage those men to recognize that? This is a human problem and that they're part of the solution they have to be part of citation otherwise things will never change. Yeah so I think you see grace forward when Powerful men or influential men get it and they don't just get it and like a check the box way but they they really get it on a fundamental level and every decision that they make it somewhere in the calculus of how they're making those decisions and that's a big piece queer on an awards program here called the voices of solidarity and it's really about honoring those great guys who are in the fight. I love that and often risking their livelihood. We all met all around the world. There's some great. Ceo's and leaders that we've honored but there are also different young guys. I don't know if you're familiar with the Nail Polish undercover Keller's. No that into drank and it will turn a color. If you drink has been Mufi right yes and so these guys came up with this formula basically so that the nail Polish we turn a color if it was and now there's you just young college guys that they had a personal experience with a friend who had been drugged and raped in college and they decided to do something about it. It's kind of engaging men at different levels in doing good. I think that can make a huge difference.

Dynamite: Audrey Kurth Cronin on New Technology and Terrorism

"Nobel envisioned dynamite transforming cityscapes and blasting railways buildings and tunnels into existence. And when he finally got dynamite right it did just that power the industrial age and made the modern day metropolis possible but it also led to new forms of terrorism. Anarchists used dynamite to assassinate political leaders including the Russians are Alexander. The second that fearful blast in eighteen eighty. One was in fact the very first suicide bombing on this episode. I talked to security expert. Audrey Kurth Cronin to argue Nobel story is also the story of our current times once again backyard inventors spearheading new technology. But that technology is being used in lethal ways that we've never seen before. Cronin is the director of the Center for Security Innovation and new technology at American University in Washington. Dc. She also wrote the book power to the people of open. Technological innovation is arming tomorrow's terrorists. She believes that new technologies like Cyber Weapons Three D. printing artificial intelligence are this century's version of dynamite. So how do we encourage people to keep innovative while making sure those groundbreaking inventions? Don't open the door to new forms of violence. Audrey Kurth Cronin. Thank you so much for joining us on American innovations. Thanks for having me so I WANNA start talking a little bit about your book which is power to the people how open technological. Innovation is arming. Tomorrow's terrorists how did you get into this project in the first place? Well I was looking at the relationship between the late nineteenth century and the current day and seeing a lot of parallels between the incredibly fast innovations that were occurring with technology. Then and also today so I wanted to write about a breakthrough technology. I wanted to write about game. Changers that surprise people especially technologies with great potential for good that can also be lethal and then there were two specific. Things that happened. I was reading a book that quoted Nobel Alfred Nobel arguing that is explosives would make war so terrible that it could never occur and then of course we went straight into world war one and the irony of that the horror of that really struck me and then on the same day. I just happened to be watching a youtube video of Mark Zuckerberg defending facebook. You know wish along with Youtube and twitter and other things like what's up has been used by terrorist groups like Isis in ways that are horrifying and just like Alfred Nobel Zuckerberg was struggling with the unintended consequences. So I saw kind of a direct line between the nineteenth century. Innovators and today's technology giants both of them created brilliant world inventions but they also sometimes fell short in thinking about how their creations could be misused. That's why I think you're just a perfect guest for us not only because we've just had this whole sequence about Nobel's life which we're going to get to but you know it's a big theme of this show that connecting past stories to the present day. That's a lot of what we do with these kind of interview segments. I think that's a really important property of your work. I mean how much given the technology does change so much. I mean it's almost the definition of technologies. It's constantly changing. How much can we draw on the lessons of the past to make sense of the present or near future innovations? That are coming. Well I would say a lot. More than we do not to say that there are exact parallels between the two eras in the eighteen hundreds and in the present but there are a lot of things that echo or that are common between them and we have a tendency to believe that everything we're experiencing today is completely unprecedented and that's not true so finding the balance between understanding the history and seeing how people dealt with new technologies in the past and then the things that we're facing today that's very important to me and frankly stephen that's one of the things. I love about your show because it does put things in context. Thank you very much. That's very nice. You say but there is so much news in the technology space and by definition is you know innovation is just constantly driving us to new places But you know there's a lot from the past where we have gone through similar patterns in a way right where we see for instance. In this case we see technologies designed for one purpose at ended up getting utilized in all these kinda surprising ways. Some of them not particularly positive ways That that's an endless pattern. The history of technology that people invent something for one reason and then other people use her for entirely different reasons so trying to be able to project forward in thinking about how these tools will get exploited. I think is a really important skill to have. And that's why your work. I think so valuable as

Now is initially maybe the consult on one with them is is their wise around. I guess the right side of things that that you don't have to do. I mean obviously. There's always times where you need to do manual therapy but as you consider problem solve that of course. Yeah so it just wants. That tally healthy and pretty much. So it's every other allied health practitioner and from musculoskeletal injury. Point of view. We can deal with the case history. We can obviously have that individual undertake a bunch of active movements that we can get into so you can actually Visually assists that person and that will give us a quota meaningful sort of many nation that will allow us to count the provisional working going Isis. And if we need to refer out we could probably referring out of that point whether the J. or if it's looking like Leslie stuff than we can and it comes down to training St background around movement and that sort of stop it if we can obviously prescribe exercise as well as Gucci Treatment Management Advisory and had. I can manage that complaining that point in time and in credit pathway that they get back to where they goals and so people are able to say Bill. Us They health insurance on on that side of things off for the telehealth at the moment. It's so at the previously up until this week It's it's been Nari if you go private. Health Insurance Justice Week Association is really information to say that the private health out of rebates that criteria. And I'm assuming The osteopaths and car practice is going to be falling with that if it comes to a compensation base patients that you've had a road accident or a work related injury that can also be negotiated with the particular insurance around that so it's evolving quickly and I think we're gonNA probably say with these bars and the impact that it's had on business that we're probably going to seek site wakes all of those things that you could previously doing person you can probably do. I've it's telehealth. That's obviously my opinion and I suspect that's where it's going to go and then in terms of like just maybe maybe a case. Study or someone that you've worked with online and how it's actually how you've problem solved without actually being in person. Do you have any people at the moment or someone that you've seen over the last few weeks that you've been able to actually identify whether it's a posture issue. If you could just talk about that just so we can understand how that how that works. Okay so we initially had a patient probably three weeks ago. He's across came in with lower back pain. We got through that one on one counseling and then obviously all of these issues of combat. So we've developed a program. Go Good Movement literacy. So they know what they're doing from an excellent point of view but then now Adhering to these taking videos and updating videos and wakened then and actually we actually just using the lots of site instagram messenger and your viewing those videos. He's submitting. We could make changes to technique in terms of obviously modifications to the exercise lowered and things specific to eastern points. That's actually really helpful. And then a support worker wanted just had a friend colleague who is having ongoing neck related issues. We did a teleconference consultation with him. He completed some forms before he came a before. We have the consultation we were that and then we have the consultation bay now to make changes three him purchasing some equipment which is now lady added a vast majority of ice. So we've been out do some great things at work or actually in a training site. So that's been really positive to suggests process. Moving forward can be useful for certain clients in presentations. Yeah well that's that's awesome because I'm in it also gives you the opportunity to upscale your skills and you serve refinanced your skill set. Because you're able to you can find by these constraints of not being able to say someone and then you're like all of a sudden you're looking at them whether it's on Instagram Messenger or whatever it is and then all of a sudden you're you're able to mock it opens up. It's not just the people that can come in and see you face diabetes and the band at Bain.

Russia Pledges To Run Completely Positive Disinformation Campaign In 2020

"Well it's no secret. Politics in this country have gotten ugly most of the time. You can't tell one candidate from the other underneath all the mud slinging but as we approach the twenty twenty presidential election some major players are stepping up to bring back civilized discourse Russian Internet trolls. The same ones known for interfering in the two thousand sixteen presidential election have recently made a pledge to run a completely positive disinformation campaign at twenty twenty joining us now is opr. Washington correspondent Dirk mullins silently. So why are these trolls deciding to run a cleaner? Deception campaign twenty. Twenty hackers and trolls are tired of how militias and unproductive political disinformation tactics have become an America and want the vitriol taken back out of toppling the democratic process I spoke with a member of the Kremlin linked Internet research agency WHO I call Victor. In order to protect his identity off the two thousand sixteen. We recognized that we are becoming bought of his problem. Positive lies a more civilized exchange of false negatives. This is what we are aspiring to to spread. Do Americans in twenty twenty election interesting approach. But how will this affect their campaign strategy this year? Victor says trolls will still be using the same methods we saw in twenty sixteen but in the future thereabouts micro targeting and deep fake videos will focus on spreading fake hope rather than manufactured outrage. We would blame Benghazi on Hewlett. You look up. Look her up. Yeah so mean so negative. This year we will just fell nicely is like say Donald Trump going to Afghanistan on a covert mission and killing an Isis leader with his bare hands or pretending. Automotive and coal industries are doing well now. Those allies every American can get behind while he sounds very dedicated to this turnaround. Well to a lot of hackers like victor. It's more than just a job in public deception. It's something they're very passionate about. This is no sense of decency and forty six anymore. How can I go home at night? And I'm looking my kids in the I when I am sure in memes of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer bearing pile of aborted fetuses. Yes I want to make descent in American democracy but that doesn't mean wall sense of Quantum Chris to be lost and in that spirit. Hackers will no longer link candidates to fake pedophile rings on twitter. But we'll share more respectable memes that are bold and forward thinking like claiming that candidate is extremely viral and has slept with over five hundred men and women that is certainly more optimistic and inspiring but what have been the result so far. Is this new disinformation going viral? Oh it's an incredible success with Americans. Those dumb asses will believe anything they read online. Well sounds like the Republicans and Democrats could learn a thing or two from the Russian operatives dead set on destroying democracy. Thank you Dirk my pleasure.

Life in the Time of Corona

"A lot of emotions going on in the world. People are feeling a lot of emotion. Every minute right solicit people going stir crazy. It means a lot of stuff is coming up. And we're going to give you a little update on the corona virus. Pandemic there are now over two hundred and fifty thousand cases over ten thousand deaths. Italy has now become the country that has the highest death rate. More than three thousand. Four hundred this is surpassing China. Meanwhile there is some hopeful news that I hope we can trust. China is reporting that the rate of new infections is close to zero. I really really WANNA believe. The Chinese government and their government-sponsored media but still cove in nineteen is having a really intense impact on all of us. You know whether it's global travel whether it's the economy family members stuck someplace that can't get back you stuck in your own house. Then we have to listen to a president who is saying. Non Essential travel between the United States and Canada will be suspended. Yeah I mean not only in Canada but also on Friday the White House. They announced during a task force briefing the daily. Corona virus briefings that disclosure is now going to be extended to the. Us Mexico border starting this weekend and yeah you know both president trump and secretary of state. Mike Pompeo at the press conference. They just toss it out there like calling it. The Chinese virus and that term has been a controversy all this week for its racism and how trump administration continues to use it the A. J. A. Which is Association of Asian American Journalists Publish. A joint statement with other journalism groups essentially condemning the use of terms like that and then maybe was predictable for me. This whole notion of like now. We're closing. These borders because migrants are bringing in the virus. I mean it was so obvious at this was where it was going to go unchecked immigration. And it's clear that trump. We shouldn't be surprised that that's what he said. Because you know that's basically just plays into the trump xenophobic playbook on immigration. Of course. He's saying now that he knew about this virus all the time and he knew how seriously he was taking it. I guess we were the last ones to know on Thursday Australia and New Zealand. Both announced that they're closing their borders to foreign nationals. But I did see this picture of like a beach. I think in Australia. That was packed and I was like Kay mixed messages. Stop looking at photos of beaches. That's a really smart gate. Stop looking at photos of beaches. So you see this money up Thursday night and California. The largest state in America. California Governor Gavin Newsom. He ordered over nearly forty million people in the state to stay home which is called shelter in place except when necessary indefinitely. He said indefinitely blissett muddy at one of the things that people aren't talking about and I I mentioned Mexico. You know covert nineteen. This is a crisis also happening. In Latin America and the Caribbean in terms of travel. Most countries in South America have enforced. Some kind of restriction. Guatemala was the first country to ban foreign travellers including travelers from the US. That happened last week. The land borders in Brazil have travel restrictions now to foreign visitors are ten Dina close. Its borders completely to non-residents Chile Peru Columbia have all closed their borders completely to try to get ahead of the spread and actually one our contributors. His brother his stuck in bed waiting for the United States to get them out so he's stuck with his family. We tweeted about it and Latin America. Alone there over twelve hundred. Cova nineteen cases. And I know I'm bringing like you know bad Juju but we did share this cute little song out of Latin America for kids about washing their hands said we both tweeted. And I can't get it out of my head Alan Rightist. So that's a little that we got this week but all this money on that song or anything what is going through your mind. Well I'M GONNA learn how to do that dance. That's like a frog in that video. Sing that song. I WanNa see you. You should videotape that. That's the context. What's that thing that kids do with the the music? What's that Tick Tock? Okay so my daughter is like become expert on to talk. And she's teaching me things but look very specifically very very very specifically what I said at the top of the show which is that. Everybody is feeling this. It's getting really close to all of us in so many ways. You know my mom and my brother are in Mexico. They were supposed to come back. They live there half the year. There were supposed to come back. I don't know when I'm going to see them again. To be honest like that's happening now like we as you know. I was on my way to Mexico to report a really important story. About how in the middle of all of this virus there are people still fleeing for their lives from gang members. I was going back to Mexico to Tapa Chula to report on a young refugee who may actually be one of the lucky ones because he just got inside Mexico while because what's happening is that countries are shutting. Down was actually the first one before they had any case of covert nineteen they did a national shutdown quarantine essentially really extraordinary in terms of forward thinking. Now people think that was a smart decision. Dominican Republic has cancelled flights from Milan. Which is you know. I mean the. Dr Boondock Anna Direct flights from to the Dr This is what sustains the tourist industry is is what sustains much of the economy again. I have these images of like. How do you do proper social distancing in Latin America? The human connection being able to hug people like we like we do that. We Hook people that we hug and kiss people that we just inner DNA. We hug it out all the time. How educate you know so? I know that's happening and the other thing. I'm sure you're thinking of. Julio is the return of of authoritarianism of the troops on the street to keep people out on America if for their own safety but now who again it just memories of empty streets with tanks patrolling down them in the streets of Santiago or is or really need these are all things that have happened under the guise of a code nineteen virus that this could be. The return of it is very disconcerting. What about you? I mean I'm thinking about what the there's a lot of things happening in Puerto Rico. Curfews businesses shutting down. I'm trying to call attention to the fact that the Puerto Rican economy. Just it's shot and this is just. GonNa add more pain. Think about this. You know earthquakes now. There's covert nineteen. There's a lot of anxiety. Let's not forget the Caribbean Haiti. The Dr. You know all the Caribbean islands. That don't have the access that don't have the resources and I do believe that. He was being ignored once again by the United States. I know the federal government's having so many issues with its response in the mainland. The was not even a Blimp. But one of the things that you mentioned. Maria is the impact that the crisis at the pandemic is having on refugees and asylum seekers in when it comes to immigration in this country so this week several immigration courts have postponed hearings already last week in Immigration Court Seattle's shutdown temporarily because of the spread another thing about the immigration courts of the Department of Justice. If you actually read the document. They didn't say they're like ending hearings. Things can happen via telephone and things can happen. Be a video conferencing so I think people are thinking that everything stopping. It's not then on Tuesday. Trump like just announces that he's GonNa turn back all asylum-seekers at the southern border to prevent the corona virus spreading in detention facilities. When in fact from what I understand the spread came from the north down. You know I mean. Cases in the United States happened way before anything in Latin America. But that's what he's saying. Isis also issued a statement on Wednesday saying that they're adjusting their enforcement to focus primarily on immigrants detained for criminal reasons. So I guess we're back Obama. The ICE statement came after they arrested a man in L. A. Who is buying groceries for his family ahead of the city's call for self quarantine because he was on their list due to a past. Dui conviction so there you

"isis" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Fellow at the Atlantic Council doing research on the Middle East based in Turkey where the government doesn't want to be anywhere near these members of Isis. This and lots of countries feel the same way except the United States. That's right the. US has taken its citizens. Back and president trump has repeatedly called on the Europeans to do the same and when it comes to the Europeans just mentioned quickly. The Europeans have been much more willing to consider taking back women and children but by and large by and large European countries have steadfastly refuse to accept foreign fighters back on its soil because of the dangers. They might pose to their societies because public opinion is so incredibly anti repatriation. And because because a lot of these these countries aren't necessarily able to guarantee that if they took back these fighters and put them in court that any evidence would hold up and allow these fighters to be jailed jailed. So a lot of them could end up being set free and that's a really scary thought for a lot of people in Europe. Why is it that European countries are finding it so hard to take back these isis members and their families wiz when the United States is happy to do so so there are two main reasons why the Europeans have been much more reluctant than the US to bring back their citizens than the the first one is simply numbers the US had far fewer fighters leave the country to go fight in Syria for Isis? And so the number birth people that have been repatriated have been much fewer than what the Europeans would have to repatriate. SO THAT'S I. The second major difference is that it's easier for us to deal with it. Because we have laws on the books that allow us to prosecute these fighters and give them harsher sentences than they would receive in many of these European countries for example so he someone hoop is tried and sentenced in the US and convicted and sentenced to twenty ears for example in Belgium or Germany earned the UK for the same thing could be sentenced to five years in Turkey at seven years and so one one of the main reasons why European countries are reluctant to take their citizens back. Is that even if they do find enough evidence to convict them in a court of law. The best case scenario is that they're in jail for less than ten years and then they come out and then they have to monitor them for the rest of their lives and that takes up a lot of resources and potentially puts a lot of people at risk in the eyes of the Europeans are all. These countries obligated to take Isis members under families back so that is such an important question. That really is the million dollar question. Is there a legal basis or a legal requirement government for these European countries to take their citizens back and the answer is very murky. So let me just try to explain the nuance when it comes to foreigners foreigners in Syria trying to go back to their country. There are two possibilities here right. One is if a European citizen WHO's in Syria is able to get to. Let's say Germany. Let's just use that as an example if they're able to get to Germany on their own and they show up at an airport in Germany or at the border then international law is very clear you have to let them in right the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for example. It says that I'm quoting here. Everyone everyone has the right to leave any country including his own and to return to his country. It's less clear if when it comes to active repatriation so a lot of these. In fact most of these European citizens are in Syria and they have no way of getting back to their countries right they have no L. Way of showing up at an embassy. And saying you know you need to help us because where your citizens but since those citizens are able to get to those embassies you know. They're in prisons camps in Syria. Then what the European countries are saying is that they are not obligated to proactively go into Syria especially remember that these European countries have cut diplomatic ties with Syria so they don't even have diplomatic relations with with that country anymore. So they're saying that we are under no oh obligation to go in and proactively take our citizens back especially that we don't actually consider them citizens anymore because they tore up their passports passports or they denounced their citizenship or participate in an act. That are really untypical. What it means to be a German citizen or a French French citizen Or anything like that. So so they don't even see them as really their responsibility. Okay but these members are in Syrian prisons. Now how being taken care of by Syrian democratic forces they would like to see them repatriated to countries like Denmark the Netherlands UK France. Germany is there the middle ground. Is there a third option. Well a bunch of them are being discussed right now with the Europeans have been discussing amongst one another but also so publicly and what the SDS has also Suggested is for an international tribunal to be held inside Syria in SDF held territory which is in the northeast And for those prisoners to be tried there another option that is being suggested is to have all of them sent Iraq and being tried there because Iraq is a an actual state and has institutions. That are you know at least on paper equipped to deal deal with this issue. Those are the two main options that are being discussed right now and of course. They both come with pros and cons and complications right. So for example for an international international tribunal. You have the question of well. Who would pay for it first of all Under what international law would you be trying these prisoners. One one of complicating factors in this conversation. Is that there is no internationally agreed upon definition of terrorism for example so it would have to be something like crimes against humanity right. But if you're trying someone for crimes against humanity you really have to have solid evidence for that because it's such a serious SECU station and there simply isn't enough evidence for most of these people to be convicted for crimes against humanity. A A lot of the evidence that's being used right now against them is for example they posted something on social media or there's a video of them sitting next to a corpse corpse or or there's an Isis document that lists their name but those examples and those cases are few and far between for most host of the prisoners that are being held in Syria right now. The evidence simply wouldn't really stand up in court is just it strikes me as strange that people are afraid to bring these terrorists back to the countries where they were born or were they have citizenship to try them in a court of law but they don't seem afraid right now that Syria may not have the infrastructure to maintain the prisons where they're being kept and that they're falling into this state of legal limbo and and could potentially just escape. You Know I. I know what you mean. An I can see how you think it's strange but when you think about it and when you think about politicians ends and policy makers in particular it's quite easy for them to to kind of imagine that this isn't going to be a big deal because it's not an immediate threat right like if you bring back people to Europe that is to them an immediate threat that they have to deal with but when you try to explain to them that listen listen if you leave them in Syria they might escape from prison. The Syrian regime might take control over the prisons and then use them to blackmail Europe. They could become more more radicalized and they could radicalize future generations. If they ever escape I mean. There are so many awful scenarios on the horizon if you think about just leaving them there but because it seems kind of far down the road that I think a lot of people convince themselves is that all but that's that's not really a threat. I mean that that might never happen. But are we risking having stateless militants floating from one conflict zone to another I mean. Isn't this how isis was formed in the first place. That's exactly right. I mean Isis grew out of al Qaeda in Iraq. I remember when I was working at the Department of Defense and I was working on the Syria file. I was the Syria country director. And I remember you know in the beginning of few few twenty eleven two thousand twelve when we first started seeing the first steady slow trickle of foreign fighters coming into Syria. And you could just tally. You knew that this was going to be bad. You knew that this was going to end well. But you had leadership across not just in the United States To be fair but but across Europe as well who worked convinced that this was going to be a manageable problem that you could contain this inside inside Syria and that It wasn't really worth kind of trying to game it out or do anything more more serious about it because because it could be contained and that's exactly what I see happening now You know the first time around. I mean you could fault. Leadership in all of these countries political leaders. Either way but you fall them. Fold them even more today because we we saw this before and we spent spent billions of dollars and put together an international coalition to defeat Isis. And we're leaving now and leaving behind thousands thousands of them in an uncertain fate. And we think everything's going to be okay. It's it's really it's just astounding. I don't WanNa fearmongering anything but are you saying that you know. There's the potential here for ISIS members. Who are in these prisons right now? Who are stuck in legal limbo to to regroup and form something newer and even worse than Isis? Is that what you're saying. I don't think it's fear mongering at all to say that I. I think that that is a very possible scenario. And I think people need to understand the gravity of the risk that we're facing right now in letting in these fighters kind of languish in Syria under the control of the SDF just since October ninth. Since the Turkish operation began in the northeast more than one hundred people with alleged links to isis have escaped. And that's just suck Tober ninth and there are eleven thousand thousand of them across makeshift prisons being guarded by a non-state actor that doesn't have the capacity to hold them indefinitely so it's not fear mongering at all it is a genuine an urgent threat and one of the ways to address that threat. And there's just no getting around. This is that the European countries that have citizens on the ground in Syria they have a moral humanitarian and a security based obligation to take back their citizens to relieve the burden off of the SDF and to help every country that is doing. Its part fight and defeat Isis right. Now it's it's a necessary step and I don't think European countries can can't deny that fact even if they choose not to do anything about it. Jasmine el.

"isis" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Hey this is today explained. I'm I'm Shawn Romney's firm last week. We did an episode about a law passed in California that would make classes start a little later so that kids could sleep a little more. I I started the episode by calling one of my oldest friends to talk to him about how we used to show up at seven. Am for zero period at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita California today shortly after that seven. Am Bell Rang for period. There was a shooting at Saugus high school. As these things things go. Not a lot is known yet as these things go at least two students have died and multiple students are in critical condition as these as things go. The shooter is in custody before we start the show today. I felt the need to say something about this. And this is just for me my opinion I refuse to accept that this is just how it goes that this is the cost of doing business in the United States that we can pass laws has to let kids sleep in a little more but not ones that actually prevent kids from being shot when they go to school. I think that's insane. This is not the world we were promised in zero period at seven in the morning. Back at Saugus High School John Williams foreign editor here. Vox yesterday you and I were in a room watching the impeachment hearings William Taylor George Kent and that whole time just a few blocks south of our office here. The president was having a very important meeting. Yeah so he was meeting with the President of Turkey His name is regional type. Airtime John or air to gone as trump incorrectly pronounce his name but he did a lot of people do. It's hard G. G. but like little the it's like in in Turkish that's different. CCA Air to one. We're grateful to President Ertegun and to the citizens of Turkey for their cooperation now. But this isn't just a visit from like Justin Intruder. This is a big deal because the president recently withdrew troops out of Syria and Turkey stepped in right so the US and Turkey have been in a bit of a tiff lately. over a few things so it mostly kicked off with trump and this phone call. He had with air to one a few weeks ago in which he essentially agreed to pull. US US troops out of northeastern Syria. We WanNA bring our troops back home. It's been many many years. It's been decades in many cases. We WanNA bring our troops oops SPEC home and the. US was working with the Syrian Democratic Forces. The Kurdish back forces. We have been partnered for several years fighting. Isis air. John Really. He does not like those Syrian. Kurdish forces considers terrorists and has wanted for a long time to basically launch military incursion. Kick them out of the area get them away from his border And create what. He's calling a safe zone. So trump polls these troops out Turkey. Syria let them take care of it. Let them take care of it. Turkey launches incursion the Turkish military unleashed an onslaught of artillery and airstrikes targeting. The Syrian town of Roselyne trump administration is suddenly like. Hey how dare you launch this incursion. Even though we totally knew that was gonNA happen. I've told Turkey that if they do anything outside of what. Aw We would think is humane to use the word. Second Time we talk about Hong Kong. We talk about this They could suffer. The wrath of an extremely decimated committed economy vice president Mike Pence when over to try to make a deal with Turkey and the Kurds and try to basically get the ceasefire put in place. That's kind of where we are now. So the ceasefire has not totally holding their reports of war crimes being committed by the Turkish backed forces in the area. they're still sporadic fighting on the ground. We are about a mile away from the Turkey Syria border. And we've been hearing fighting the sounds of mortar fire automatic weapons as well as grenades not exactly the sounds. You'd expect up to here during a successful ceasefire a ceasefire with this decision to pull out troops from Syria and to let Turkey step in seemed to anger Republicans. The president's allies far more than anything to do with what happened to Ukraine this impeachment increase. How come so cute things first? We essentially abandoned our Syrian in Kurdish allies. We've been fighting alongside In the fight against Isis and to. WHO's going to deal with Isis? Now now. So the Syrian Kurdish forces that again we were allied with for years fought Isis and they captured a lot of Isis fighters and family members lives children of Isis. They've put up all these basically ad hoc prisons There are thousands of Isis fighters and their family being held by the Syrian Democratic Forces. The Kurdish I back forces when Turkey came in and ran the. STF The Syrian Kurds out of that region. It was like well. What the Hell who's GonNa Watch over these prisons? What's going on With all these fighters like is it now. Turkey's responsibility. Do they even care. There was a prison break. Some Isis fighters and family members of ISIS Escaped the God showed us. This attempted prison break from four days ago. They pull the door off its hinges and they charge even further. Oh the down the corridor and now it's like complete chaos. It's been over a month since the president made this decision and started executing it. What are the conditions right now in these prisons where members of Isis are being held? So these are loosely ad hoc prisons right there like schools and government buildings that they just took over and converted and made into makeshift prisons ends. Where a lot of the prisoners are sleeping on mattresses on the floor cells jammed with thousands of isis foreign fighters countries including person Franz Belgium? The America captured in the Guzzo earlier. This year. Now crump together in prison conditions more reminiscent of concentration comes. There's hardly even room to move around owned super overcrowded. There also these camps One in particular has like something. Like seventy thousand. It's called and hoad account camp that sprung from nowhere now the size of a small town most of the people there are family members so wives and children of Isis. They're also like actual isis fighters thousands of them also in this camp aid organizations. Say It is not too late to save the children of is militants but if nothing changes they say this humanitarian crisis could turn in to a security disaster and it's basically just surrounded by like a rusty chain link fence that's not super secure for basically rounding up people off the battlefield battlefield and putting them places wherever we can find place to stick them and there's no real like accountability. There's no real like accounting of how many people are there so it's kind of a black box which is really scary.

"How is he going to handle that they picked up magnificient diversion by saying this the way the way we act of war wow and most of the American people think that the Russians did hack and there's no substance at F. as in sort of technical evidence that affects what's what's going on this time we have bill bar and the other prosecutor is working on this case namely how this whole investigation of Russia of this whole thing about Russia gate started John Doran Durham and bar Italy Italy because that's where part of the operation started by this very very shadowy figure else bit suit and they get to the bottom of that and the Italians are operating one on here is there in the heat and what we have here in my view there's a magnificent diversion of attention including impeachment proceedings or you know the like to divert attention to what power would come up with and what Durham and bill bar they're keeping their piece but they've got dynamite because really big guys James Call Me Fbi John Brennan CIA KOMITCH deputy people in the Justice Department itself will be shown to be selling yeah nice really big guys are felons I have thousands of sealed indictments you've got really big guys who are felons that's your what's interesting with that clip is an underreported story that just broke which is is goes up on the web but you find even find any of the newspapers is definitely not on any of the media that can clip were and as a bill bar operation defense elegance is a headline you can look you can do a search on this Defense Intelligence Agency worker arrested on charges leaking topsy secret information to reporters did see this yeah I did see it and that's part of I believe what what was talking about starting to pick these guys off cool are you never heard of these people but their disguise the thirty year old he's been arrested for leaking top secret documents to reporters right out of the DIA and this may be the beginning of something some baby both the Governor maybe this is going to happen so what do you think ankle happen sooner thousands of sealed indictments or the end of the world in twenty thirty due to climate change early. Yeah well I think there's three choices one is COMI GONNA be found to be a felon it'd be choice one that thousands of sealed in msrb choice to climate changes you know we already written wrote that one off as bogus yeah I don't know none probably GonNa be picking off these little these characters is going to put a it's going to change things a little bit but nobody's reporting on this this is scandalous meanwhile the president started his own attraction although very interesting once we've been looking well we've been looking at Syria and the pipelines you've probably heard the words homes in Aleppo two full years before it was even in the in the world media regarding the pipelines and the involvement of the Russians and just so many different agenda does at play in in that region and we also looked at the Kurds. The Kurds who have been who this is all part of the Ottoman Empire and This is Hundred year old issue and the Kurds they did they never agreed with the Turks and they have just claimed his territories hey this is ours we call the Kurdistan look it up there's no real country called Kurdistan but they also have the PKK who were swapping out their military uniform badges for me y PG and commonly known as the Syrian Democratic Forces so this all this shenanigans going on on with what started as a thirty day trip to go fix something in Syria that but of course it was really all about energy issues and who owns what Kinda the same thing that Ukraine is going through so president trump says yeah you know what was going to pull out a little bit from his speech from the White House which justifies his actions now the Kurds are fighting for their land just so you understand they're fighting for their land and somebody wrote in a very very powerful article today they didn't help us in the Second World War they didn't help us with no Normandy as an example they mentioned names of different battles there were there but they're there to help us with their land and that's a different thing in addition to that we tr- we have spent tremendous amounts of money on helping the Kurds in terms of ammunition in terms of weapons in terms of money in terms of pay with all of that big said we liked the Kurtz this is like Israel and the Palestinians okay there's only one difference maybe the hatreds even greater is that possible maybe not I campaigned and ending the endless I were all over the world fighting wars half the places nobody even knows what they're doing over there and I feel that we are doing the right thing and I think the reveals that two we've had tremendous support outside of the Washington little Washington area and even in Washington people are saying you're doing the right thing then there's no doubt that the Kurds who were fighting with us against Isis created by US never mind are very brave the very good soldiers that highly respected by the US troops but what trump is saying is correct and what the the narrative the mainstream narrative from the war hawks and knee uh-huh liberals neo cons just everyone who's who sucking off the military industrial complex teat They are outraged inched and they've come up with this idea of saying we'll there are there are closest ally as you mentioned earlier which of course not Israel is the closest ally in the region but our closest ally how could you let them just be slaughtered than not going to be slaughtered they're not stupid they've been fighting the Turks for one hundred years however it is interesting to note that there seems to be some strategy behind this by the way if you're going to say there are ally they helped us we'll then what are you doing pissing on pissing against Russia they won the Second World War for us now we hate them so shut up with that Colonel Douglas Macgregor he's a Fox contributor so he's paid to say this but I really enjoyed his analysis of this move by the president so much so I clipped it from the Tucker Carlson show which I don't do often swamp is clearly very disturbed which I think that's a candidate for inter show Eyeso- a swamp very disturbed because the president has done something that I have not witnessed in the last thirty years he's actually injecting strategy back into American foreign and defense policy let me explain he's turned Mr Aired Awan who has been trying to carve out a portion of Syria now for a very long time remember Mr Air John is also partially Ospel for standing up Isis then isis turned out to be a Frankenstein's monster and he decided that needed to be brought under control now he wants to resettle Sunni Arab fugees in northwestern Syria and create a kind of security zone for Turkish interests but he's also simultaneously told Mr John you can do this but now you are responsible for dealing with Isis if Isis rears its head if it comes back it's your problem this is very important point the president has shifted the burden of responsibility for something that is clearly regional clearly goes back to Turkey to Mr Air John at same time Russia has promised to maintain the territorial integrity of Syria come what may how is Russia going to deal with Mr Aired Awan who has decided to carve out a piece of Syria for his own purposes and then we have Iran Iran wants to maintain its kind of activity to Lebanon and its Shiite allies Ed country but with the Turks dominating northern Syria Iran now is going to be unable or at least will find it far far more difficult to connect with Lebanon the point is the president has checkmated all of key players in the region in Syria now they must confront each other I recommend if possible to rewind that that piece that clip on the show when you're listening to it and look at the man Yep Walhi saying this because it makes so much sense and it taking consideration that we are energy exporters we don't really need it anymore all the Douche bags from decades and decades prior who are in all those deals and that includes the Clintons and the bushes and just all these Cheney's of the world they're all in these deals we don't need it so what I see trump doing his screw it we're out we're not gonNA have any made a very specific threat towards Turkey's if Turkey starts massacring people he says I will I will bring down their economy I will kill their economy and he can strong arm the Central Bank President and said look you've got to do something about the rate of the rate was twenty.

"Only you know if we did august two thousand nineteen four hundred fifteen ppm of c._o. Two andre what does it mean to use. This glacier has now been declared dead well. This is a significant moment woman because look glacier was one of the places that we actually learned by heart in children's school textbooks so we would learn the biggest glaciers but we with also learn about the smaller places and the main one with the strangest name was the uk glacier. What is i mean. That's kind of the a special thing about what is happening. As it's a peculiar name. It's kind of an archaic name of yoke yoke in english. That is the poll that you use to carry buckets of water. Yoke also means burden or something that process you down so you could say say. The name is up so symbolic because used to carry the what like all the glaciers of the world but now that what is leaving leaving the glaciers into the ocean becoming the burden the question of future generations. What are the implications for the loss of iceland's glaciers pictures. We'll iceland's. Glaciers are actually they are actually hewitt's the thickest glaciers in iceland are about three thousand feet thick and you can imagine a eh three empire state building on top of each other but these glaciers if they were spread over the island we would be under hundred feet of ice so so this is is a huge smash and when this leaves us it's will actually in the earth's crust and can cause what can occur options so what you wrote is. We know what needs to be done and we need to do it so what actually needs to be done. We've just need to transform energy production. We probably need some kind of moonshot clubs act to search for the solution but much of it is just to do what you're told you consume less or respects. The material that we use andrea is thera moment from yesterday's ceremony that sticks with you. There was a girl that sent wishes to greta tune pack the sweetest girls that is actually sailing boats deep south of iceland on her way to new york for the climate meeting in september so <hes> somebody could feel the strange that picked drama actually where children are on a mountain top sending a <hes> <unk> to a girl in the mid atlantic ocean to the country that has always been kind of leading the way you going to the moon and doing lots of cool stuff we have in the world that test decided to not lead anymore and you started to think that it was actually a time for maybe the nordic countries to start taking more responsibility in the world. Andre magnusson isn't this landmark poet and author who wrote the engraving on the memorial plaque that now sits on what was once the auk glacier. Thanks so much under thank you so much. Okay time to lighten the mood with the world's jonathan dire. Hey jonathan like al so what do you have for us well. I've got a joke. It's not my joke at it comes from the fringe festival in edinburgh. That's a big deal. The fringe festival oh absolutely is bill is the biggest arts festival in the world happens every it takes up pretty much the month of august eddie murphy getting a hotel.

"Interesting. I was listening to a chap from the pharmaceutical industry because medicines in particular is something that that lot of ordinary people are quite concerned about whether they're going to get their medicine on time. They've talked about people with diabetes for example that their insulin might be at delayed and one chap from the pharmaceutical industry said it might actually be an issue with the industry's themselves and the port and all of that it might be led by the public where the public becomes so fearful of not getting their hands on the medicine based start stockpiling and that naturally leads to a shortage of medicine so this kind of fear grows and create greater fear among the general public worsens. The situation has prime minister boris. Johnson himself responded yet to this league. He didn't quite get into the specifics office bovis. He just said today that the government was preparing for a no deals scenario that we would believing on october thirty first deal or no deal but it may not be as smooth road ahead. Were very confident that <hes> it by october. The thirty first we will be ready and that's the crucial thing. I think people people won't know people are very confident themselves that they can do it. I'm not pretending that there will be bumps on the road that will be said that on on the steps suit donning street but if everybody puts them minds to it. I have absolutely no doubt that we can get ready and of course the g seven summit is happening later this week and boris johnson will meet with other leaders for the first time there i mean is he expected to get some blowback about this well. I'm sure he will. He said that he would talk to them about other issues other than brags that but i can only imagine that <hes> for most people they want to know what was said about brags artist. It is his first time. I'm missing other e._u. Leaders aids taken him this length of time which is unusual usually when you have a u._k. Prime minister starting out an office there will be some early trips to meet other you leaders it hasn't happened and the optics are quite obvious that he didn't want to be seen to be meeting with them because he had nothing to offer offer and they by all accounts have very little to offer him. He was saying today that he's confident the e._u. Has shifted its position on the backstop and that there will be eaten and negotiations et cetera taking place the e._u. Itself has said that you know the deal was in place is still the deal but indications are at those meetings will be maybe a little less than he would have hoped the world's or berry in london. Thanks orla tanks car sounds like the u._k. Could use some cheering up later this hour for an annual award for the best joke at the edinburgh fringe.
