Trump's intelligence chief warns China is the greatest threat to US since WWII
"Outgoing us administration of president. Donald trump has thus far extended few of the traditional courtesies to the incoming administration of president elect joe biden. There has been no two of the white house no sporting photo op in the rose. Garden and little of the handover briefings from one group of officials to the next however director of national intelligence. John ratcliffe whether trying to help or hinder has passed along. His top worth to the next president in a wall street journal op-ed he has warned. President elect biden that china poses the greatest threat to america today and to worldwide democracy since world war two on joined with more on this point. Isabel hilton ceo at china dialogue. Isabel is the director of national intelligence entirely wrong here. We never entirely wrong but they do manage to you. Make a really terrible case turn radcliffe. I would remind you is director of national intelligence by skin of his teeth. When he was first nominated there was such a sort of howl of protest is lack of qualifications and the fact that he had falsified his own resume that that that trump at one point had to withdraw nomination before trying again. So you know as a kind of bond with the distinguished record nuanced analysis. I would you know maybe take it with a pinch of salt. That said clearly that the you know that china is a major challenge to democratic values of the united states. is meant to defend this. After a couple of problems with this framing one. It is clearly designed to To constrain at the incoming administration that is trying to take very different approach to foreign policy and the outgoing administration is trying to narrow the ground so saying that china is the greatest threat to freedom. Well you know okay It is true that china has indulged in ip theft. Absolutely true surprise just as the united states by the way did against the uk in the twentieth century. is it that may be ongoing espionage. Certainly and china certainly has nationalist ambitions. It certainly trying to bend the global rules to serve its own interest that is what big powers do including the united states. So the problem is is not the diagnosis. If you like. It's the reverend is that the trump administration has offered over the last four years which have simply made it easier for china to advance. Its case so the i think dangers here. One is the exaggeration of china's powers. And that's something we saw with the soviet union towards the end of the cold war. That if you have security agencies whose prosperity depends on building a threat they will big up a threat and so right to the moment when the soviet union collapsed we were hearing from. Us intelligence and security agencies that the world was about to be overwhelmed by soviet communism. And there's a bit of the same syndrome going on here but the second problem is the complete ineptitude of the trump administration encountering the chinese efforts to do that you have to build alliances not destroy them. And you have to make sure that your own offer has credibility. Most people prefer living a well-functioning democracy with personal freedoms trump has not been the best advert for that. At least for the trump's the united states is not the finest moment for democracy. And so you know yes. Of course there is a challenge here to challenge values challenge a political system but the way to country is with the integrity of our own political systems including that of the united states red cliff talks of china operating an influence campaign inside the united states. And on the one hand. That's a somewhat fatuous statement because everybody operates influence campaign inside the united states and indeed in pretty much every other country but is there anything especially sinister or dangerous about what china is doing. Ratcliffe also talks of them targeting members of congress. Well again no surprise. China has has done this an onion eternal lays it all out if you look at anything to do with the united front work department. Which is that bit of the party which has always existed which is intended to manage relations with non party elements. It used to be largely working within china building relationships or or not with religious authorities or with business. People are not in the communist party. Now that china's going global so has the united front work department and it has teamed up with a with the entity in the party that used to manage overseas chinese affairs so and it has put an enormous amount of money into this since the beijing olympics which was regarded as a pr disaster for china in so many ways Would've been the results. Well according to the pew survey in the last month china's reputation has never been lower so yes. China is putting great efforts into influence building and so far. They've been a terrible flop now. There is an element of this which is elite capture. Which again was going pretty. Well i think certainly in the uk for example in an example of elite capture would be the approach of the cameron government to china which you know proclamations of the golden decade. And so on. That's her you know very much again. If you look at elite attitude to china largely because of china's overreach there has been a big backlash everywhere from australia to the united states to europe. You hear the same message. so yes. they're making an effort but is it working. No it's not just one final thought and it's it's a concern that ratcliff doesn't raise for obvious reasons but is there any kind of danger of between now and january twentieth china just thinking there's nobody watching the shop if we're ever going to try and pull something big when never gonna get another chance like this. Well of course the big worry. I mean you might say. Hong kong was that the big warriors taiwan. And there's been a lot of jostling as you know in taiwan. I guess another option is the is the india china border again. We've seen quite a lot of live action there this year. My personal views. That taiwan is a step too far think china has a really a realistic understanding of what it would take not only to take taiwan but then to make that occupation work. And this you know. There are plenty of warnings about how difficult that is. And is this the moment to risk so much in pursuit of that. Of course the regime wants to recapture taiwa are how reunite or however they care to phrase it. But i think we've pretty much got twenty forty nine before that becomes acute in their many other Things that many other things that can be done to make taiwan life difficult short of a military assault isabel hilton front.

Before The Shot In The Arm
"So we have the magic potion. We have three vaccines that will probably be on the market soon and now now we have to put them in something. We are talking about special. Various dot. After tiny little glass vials. You can't just use any kind of glass for this. The glass reuse was invented in one thousand nine eleven. This is stuff on mark schmidt. He's in charge of global sales at a german company called shot. They are the biggest makers of fancy medical class. This class is super stable And ken with stent. A higher shock resistance. And this glass is called. Borough silica glass borough silica glass doesn't shatter in ultra low temperatures invisible. Glass particles don't make their way into the vaccine. When you use borough silica glass. This is the good stuff. There are like seven main ingredients. The biggest portion of ingredients is silicon is sent actually and then we have elements like born sodium potassium calcium magnesium the sand and all those minerals. Come from all over the world. Brazil india china europe australia south america africa. Some are more specific to one region. This borhan is material. I think seventy percent of the ballroom is coming from turkey. The little mineral looks like little rock's born everything gets shipped to one of five melting plants. Where all the dry ingredients get mixed together. We have huge mixers and you heat these tanks up to over one thousand degrees and melt the sense and melt the ingredients until you have a homogeneous liquid glass melts not like water but like more more like honey. This sand melting is happening around. The clock constantly is twenty four seven we produce three hundred and sixty five days that glass because you cannot hold the tank to stop once you have heated up the tank you go you turn off the heat. You have a tankful of hard glass so you don't turn it off and from that honey lake melted sand you then form long glass tubes that then get shipped to one of sixteen cutting plants in places like argentina mexico the us switzerland germany. Indonesia china this a lot of places and here. The glass tubes get cut into vials syringes and cartridges. So it's a huge long supply chain and you have to manage all these different touch points so that nothing goes wrong. Yup stefan says shot produces around eleven billion of the roughly fifty billion borough silicate glass containers made every year including billions of vials and basically as soon as cove exploded. So did the orders for more vials. Everybody's developing a vaccine that everybody thinks they're going to be successful so what they all did and which is certainly okay normal. They all have booked capacity to buy vials. Yeah everyone who wanted to get in the race for a covid nineteen vaccine. They put in their orders for vials months ago. But they all know they will only need vials if the vaccine is successful but they also know you're not even in the race if you don't have a container to put your vaccine in seven says this has created kind of overbooking problem there are only so many vials shot can make in a year but they say not everyone is going to need vials at the exact same time. So they're hoping they'll be able to trade orders. That shot can be like listen company. D you don't have a vaccine yet. This other company does can we may be. Give them your vile order just until your vaccine is ready. Here's another way. Pharmaceutical companies have tried to avoid vile bottlenecks. They're putting the covid vaccine in multiple dose vials instead of single-dose miles. They're putting five noses in one vial. Twenty those as in one vial now. You need fewer vials and chart expects to make around five hundred to six hundred million additional vials twenty twenty one enough to support about two billion vaccine doses. Each file carrying multiple doses. No it's not a big number and and it's it's it feels small it it it gives small but still it's still. It's a stretch because you have to be able you have to have that additional capacity and you have
IRS Says Its Own Error Sent $1,200 Stimulus Checks To Non-Americans Overseas
"Now. Earlier this year, our team of reporters discovered that stimulus money from the first coronavirus relief package had been mistakenly sent to citizens off other countries. U. S government previously blamed the recipients for that error. But as Sasha Pfeiffer from our NPR investigations, team reports, the Iris now says those non Americans were not always at fault and the mistake Is likely to happen again, if more stimulus checks go out. Suzanne Wig force is a 78 year old citizen of Sweden, who lives in the country's capital, Stockholm, and over the summer, she was surprised to get a check in the mail from the United States Treasury, followed by a letter signed by President Donald J. Trump. And he says the White House Washington You lied. 31st. Your economic impact payment has arrived. My fellow American. It was a stimulus check for $1200. And I thought I can't believe it. They're sending it to me. Why? I mean, it's crazy, isn't it? It's crazy, she says, because she is not entitled to that money. The only people eligible for stimulus checks are U. S citizens and individuals that for tax purposes, the iris calls resident aliens. Suzanne. Weak force is neither of those now. Previously, the U. S government said the reason many non citizens mistakenly received checks is they filed incorrect tax returns that made them appear to be American. But weak force does not file a U. S tax return. Asked about this by NPR, The Iris now acknowledges that some non Americans erroneously receive stimulus money through no fault of their own. I'm just upset. I love American. This is so wrong because I saw that number of people were being evicted every month in Chicago, for instance, and I thought One of those families would have needed this stimulus check. Why should a Swedish citizen living abroad received $1200? The iris now says it mistakenly sent checks to some non citizens who receive Social Security and other federal benefits. People like WIG force. She receives a small social security payment from having worked in California for several years. And she believes that's why the iris erroneously sent her a stimulus check. I'm not gonna cash it. I'm just going to leave it here. There's no way I'm going to catch this money. It doesn't belong to me. Since Congress passed its coronavirus relief package in March, the U. S government has put no mechanisms in place to prevent these mistakes from happening again. That means if a new relief plan passes in the final weeks of the Trump administration or during the Biden administration, and if it includes more stimulus payments, some of that money is again likely to mistakenly end up in mailboxes overseas. Weak force is even likely to get another check how much money is leading out from the Treasury Department? Because of these similares checks. I wonder, the U. S. Government cannot answer that question. The Treasury did find that as of late May, $34 million in stimulus had gone to people who filed a tax return with a foreign address. But that includes eligible people like US citizens living abroad, and it does not include citizens of other countries who received a check at a U. S address. For example, NPR interview to citizen of the Dominican Republic who was not eligible, he had got a check at his former address in Massachusetts. At $34 Million also does not include people like WIG Force who got a check but don't file a U. S tax return at all. I think the poor folks in the iris don't have the bandwidth to go chasing this end. A. Kelleher is a vice president at Sprint tax, which does us tax preparation for nonresidents. It'd be great if they did, because I believe that there's millions of dollars that has gone to people that went entitled to it. Certainly not the intended recipients. Spring tax has clients from about 150 countries who mistakenly received stimulus check. Ex. Kelleher said the most common were India, China, South Korea, Vietnam and the United Kingdom, as well as numerous nations in Latin America. It's awful when we hear of millions of dollars going into the wrong hands, but was probably within a somewhat acceptable threshold of error or margin of error acceptable, he said, because Congress opted for speed over accuracy when it flooded the U. S economy with money last spring. Many non Americans who received a check and error are now trying to return it because they worry it will jeopardize their visa or immigration status. Course. There's equally thousands there is saying, Well, if they were silly enough to make this mistake, it's their mistake, and I'm not gonna give it back until they ask for it. Van Shockley falls in that category. He's 74 years old and was born in Pennsylvania. But he moved to Australia after becoming disillusioned with US politics in the 19 sixties. I had always been depressed when JFK was killed. I just couldn't get over that. So I started looking for someplace else start all over. So he gave up his U. S citizenship and has now been an Australian citizen for about a half century. His last trip to the U. S. Was 40 years ago. But he to receive stimulus money even though he's not eligible for it and does not file a U. S tax return. That was a waste together. My check the mail. Love pulled out a check. Federal Reserve Treasury thingamajig along with the eagle on that it's made out to me. What's the sum of America? What the hell's going on here? Why am I getting a check from the government? Just like Suzanne Wig Force in Sweden? Van Shockley in Australia suspects he mistakenly got a check because he receives Social Security from having worked in the U. S before moving overseas. First I thought it was a joke. And then I went down to the bank says Can you do some way of verifying that this is legal and the girl come back after five minutes. This is it's legal. You got the milling. Thank you, ma'am. I didn't ask for the money. I didn't expect any money. But as soon as I got us stuck into the bank, he ain't getting it back. Shockley attributes the mist ake two U. S. Government incompetence, complete stupidity. Just not doing their job properly. U S. Treasury officials said they are quote continuing to assess the accuracy of the stimulus program and the recovery efforts for any erroneous payments. In the meantime, they told NPR the Iris is relying on individuals to voluntarily return these payments. Sasha five for NPR News.

Cicada: A Chinese State-Sponsored Advanced Persistent Threat Group
"Cicada It was the group's use of the zero log on vulnerability that first brought them to my attention. But the more. I dug into the background of their existence. The more interesting they became they are Chinese state sponsored and sanctioned and a highly capable advanced persistent threat. We know that's a pt group Known by several names cicada a pt ten stone panda and cloud hopper. They've been involved in cyber espionage operations since at least two thousand nine there. Cyber intrusions are generally aimed at large international japanese companies with attack Presence having been spotted in seventeen geographical regions and across multiple business sectors. The anna's not just japanese companies because affiliates or subcontractors which may well not be japanese but are connected to japanese. Parents are also targets There are an advanced persistent threat because they burrow into a large companies network and remain in place performing long-term intelligence gathering the business sectors they focus upon seemed to primarily be automotive pharmaceutical and engineering sectors. As well as managed service providers the group uses what has become known as living off the land tools meaning using what's available on a network and they do have custom malware which has been observed in the their attack campaigns including a custom malware that semantic as named back door dot heart. Ip it h. a. R. t. i p. They have not seen it being used By the group previously but now they're seeing it everywhere so it's a recent addition to their arsenal Among the machines compromise during the attack campaign were domain controllers and file servers and there was evidence of files being exfiltrated from some of the compromised machines. The attackers extensively use a newer technique known as deal l. side loading in the campaigns that at semantic has an as observed And they were also seen leveraging. The zero log on vulnerability that was patched in august of two thousand twenty so as we know a few months ago. It's been patched control. Lots of corporations haven't updated their internal machines. Zero log on Is beautifully suited for moving laterally within an organization. And we know we. We recently did a deep dive into one of the ransomware attacks which exactly you know and specifically user a log on for that purpose This deal l. Side loading takes advantage of the windows so called side by side or win s x s system To trick windows into loading a malicious dll for an application when that application is run l. side loading is becoming an increasingly popular means for sneaking militias code inside of windows operating processes. You know getting it into ram And it's very effective in avoiding antiviral systems so it should be no surprise that the present campaign was first discovered when symantec observed suspicious de l. l. side loading activity on one of their customers networks that triggered an alert in semantics cloud analytics technology would just part of their Endpoint security that the symantec endpoint security offering the activity was brought to the tension of their analysts to verify that it wasn't a false positive then it was passed up to their investigations team for further analysis since semantics instrumentation is widely spread throughout. You know they're a large customer base. Wants the so called. The indication of compromise was identified. They were then able to apply that across their entire coverage space to identify other previously unknown victim networks and enterprises and begin through through the visibility that they had to get some sense for just how pernicious and widespread. This thing was also wants something like this is discovered. It's possible scroll back. Through prior activity logs to reexamine previous behavior. That wasn't appreciated for what it was at the time and to carefully examine the timestamps on files that they now know to look for which were not previously suspect. This allows them to german. How far back. An intrusion took place although the keta group is known to have existed since two thousand nine in this case this campaign has been ongoing since at least mid october of twenty nineteen And up through the beginning of last month. October of two thousand twenty. The attacking group has been active on the networks of some of its victims for a full year. The campaign is very wide ranging with victims in a large number of regions worldwide They have found compromised corporate networks in the us uk france belgium germany the uae. India china hong kong singapore vietnam the philippines taiwan south korea and japan so this one group is widespread

PUBG ditches Tencent to avoid India's ban on Chinese apps
"India. China. Have a border dispute. In the Himalayas dispute that has seen more than one shot fired. So as a result, India has been ordering Chinese APPS to be blocked from APPs stores in India last week India, the game pub Geeta the less now poetry itself is Korean, but it is distributed by. Chinese. Company tencent. So pudgy has announced it will take distribution of its own game and India in order to avoid the block India has been Jeez biggest market, with Cintra, tower estimating one hundred, seventy, five, million installs today. That's about twenty four percent of global downloads just one. Ten cents at its relationship with G and other markets would remain the same. I was shocked at this. I didn't realize that that I mean I I know a popular game I don't play myself but first of all that the mobile game was that popular. The Mobile version of and twenty, four percent of the world just in India like they really love to fall from from from planes and drop down to you know. Other People do it touchy not. In the real world because no one gets on a plane anymore. Yay I. I think this tells us a few things. One is if tencent very easily said like, yeah. When neither one of us are making money off this and we're not for a while it means they think this block is GonNa last this is not a temporary thing otherwise ten cents would probably be encouraging Pudgy to just hold on this'll pass so it seems like this is going to stick and it certainly doesn't seem like India and China are going to resolve their dispute anytime soon. So I guess it makes sense for ten cents to say if you keep us onboard everywhere else where you can we'll. We'll change the terms of our agreement to let you go and pub and Pudgy obviously wants to do this in. India because of one hundred, seventy, five, million installs, right Yeah. It's a It's a huge market for them and I know that safe from a little bit of research into it and from my own playing perspective as somebody who has played pudgy. It's much more. Vulnerable to people since it is available on mobile and you can play this on budget phone. So it makes sense that so many people in India are playing this game on android and IOS phones or at least they were. So given the fact that we already heard about all of these APPs being banned in India. There were one hundred and seventeen I believe. It was expected from the perspective as somebody who knows about the popularity of Pudgy that they were going to reply in some way, but it did come as kind of surprise that they decided to. Cut those ties with tencent and just decided, okay. We're going to deal with the entire publication and everything ourselves which is an interesting way to go about it but it totally makes sense
Iranian wannabes successfully use Dharma ransomware against soft targets
"I reports that a new and inexperienced group of hackers from Iran are using Dharma ransomware against easily attack businesses in Russia India China, and Japan. They're groner's in group IB's description and bleeping computer calls them low skilled using commodity tools and well-worn approaches, but they've been successful nonetheless, they use mass scan to look for organizations with Internet, facing RDP and week credentials. Again Group I. be thinks their collection of noobs buying ransomware as a service to grab the easy pickings. Indifferently protected enterprises offer even noobs gifters and skids.

Cyber gangs have long operated at the sufferance and under the close scrutiny of the security services Chinese government hackers are widely believed to be allowed to moonlight with some cybercrime after the factory whistle blows but this is a relatively new development for Iran.
"india china" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"Okay. Say I said Chinese dude I states I should that should not be allowed to not should not dismiss the fact that the Chinese also behave in their own aggressive independent United States. It's overall in their strategic sense so I. Don't I don't want to let the Chinese off the hook in any way, nor the Russians. Indicates India and USA. Again the United States terms the Indians would like to come closer, but there's damn problem about the American relationship with Pakistan. which also makes it and the Indians realizes so? How do they get closer to the Americans if the Americans are still going to play a game with the Pakistanis and this is where the nonstop deducible? That the that the United States gets from. Pakistan and India means that you can't have a wholehearted embrace, but to the extent that India China's biggest strategic rival than it's getting closer and closer relations with the Americans, but that doesn't mean that the Americans the Americans will do what the Indians want them to do. From time to time so within the Indian establishment you had those say we must move. Go some to the Americans, and then you have others who say well look how to what extent that the Americans going to help us. We should pursue our own national interests. We should be more careful about the United States and so on. A very small element, which is almost negative is the one which is hostile to American imperialism and says that you should move away. From. Being part of the quality should be more independent sort The dominant attitude in India is that India is a country which should. Seen as a major global par and justice China is seen as a dominant force in East Asia. Why aren't we seen as a dominant force in south? Asia and the recent why? We can't be seen as dominant force, South Asia is because the Pakistanis are there. We, don't have the same dominance if you like. So that's a constant attention and constant problem that even in South Asia. In terms of size in terms of population in terms of overall economic strength, but not in terms of. Strength! It doesn't dominant in the way that the Chinese are dominant over all your neighbors of course barring Russia. Barring show of course in in Asia, so you don't have the same sense and you also don't have the same sense to the frustration of more than others and to all others India is not seen as. It's seen as an emerging bond. But as a world power as a potential world player, no, it's it's not that in still very far from now as for the question of Israel, there's a difference. Israel as much closer relationship to the United States to the extent that many in the United States say that it's the Israeli Dale that wags the American dog. You can't say that about the India US relationship. And even though I, don't believe that the Israeli tail. wags the dog. The American relationship to Israel is A. Is. Unfortunately a very deep one. Not An India. US relationship is not at all comparable. Absolutely, not us. Right, I mean the the history of of the Israeli relationship goes. And Incidentally Incidentally? There's another dimension Israel's position in the Middle East. Is Much more important than South Asia. From geopolitical as well as from oil gas, and its connection to Central Asia Central Asia and the Middle East as a whole. The main origin Middle East North African region is geopolitically much more important than South Asia and the role that the India can in South Asia for the United States. Is Not as important as the Israel can play in the Minardi January. Of course, the dominant forced. It is important for the long term thinking. So take us then so a couple of weeks ago. We had this flat this.
India, China Trade Blame for Deadly Himalayan Border Clash
"India says it has lodged a strong protest with China against what it said was an attempt to erect a structure inside its territory that led to the recent border clashes the foreign ministers of the two countries have agreed neither side will take action to escalate to masses twenty Indian soldiers were killed in the clashes with Chinese troops on Monday
India-China clash: 20 Indian troops killed in Ladakh fighting
"Why did Chinese and Indian troops fight in a remote valley along their shared border this happened high up in the Himalayas with thousands of troops from both countries have been stationed for decades at least twenty Indian troops died in the fighting and China won't disclose how many casualties it suffered for some explanation we've got NPR's Emily Feng in Beijing and NPR's India correspondent Lauren Frayer on the line learn this is a very specific part of the world the very remote part of the world what's this place like and what does India say happens there right so no well this is at fourteen thousand feet up in the Himalayas subzero temperatures there's almost no civilian population there and so that we have to rely on the two militaries to tell us what happened and they have different versions of the story both say the other started it we do know it was hand to hand combat with stones and wooden clubs because they have this agreement not to carry guns in that borders on an Indian Army colonel is among the dead India has been building a road in the area that could be used to deploy a future troops more quickly China may see that as a provocation both sides have been pouring in more troops and building more infrastructure there recently and so that's led to some scuffles in recent weeks have also been some high level military talks as recently as last weekend actually to try to defuse tensions but you know the opposite appears to have happened okay so that's from India's perspective Emily you're in Beijing what is China saying about what happened China says it bears no responsibility for what happened and it says it was Indian soldiers who first crossed into this no-man's land that separates the troops stationed in this valley yesterday night China's military put out a statement in which they accused Indian troops of cloak deliberately launching a provocative attack and big knowledge that tensions have been simmering for a while I spoke to retired colonel and and China's army his name is you have gone about why he thinks this clash happened here sure I'm not sure sure sure gallantry you know it's also one of them he said it was inevitable given tensions that people were going to die in a border clash between India and China and he put the blame on Indian prime minister Modi's who as a leader he said taking a more aggressive expansionary approach colonel yeah believes like many people in China that India provoked this clash so they could score points with more nationalistic voters in India and as Lawrence of we don't have that many details about what actually happened unlike India China's been very real to to share any information I asked the foreign ministry today white they can't give us casualty numbers and they said verbatim they didn't need to why is this so sensitive in China most likely it's because Chinese soldiers were killed in the clash and that's an embarrassing and very rare occurrence China's military last night admitted that there were casualties in general stemming from this clash but they didn't say which side in which they occurred China also says they're not releasing casualty numbers because they don't want to infuriate their own citizens and much of the escalate learn I want to ask you about what is at stake for India here because we're talking about the world's two most populous countries and both of them have nuclear weapons it is worried about its own territorial integrity I mean it doesn't want to lose land on this border to China China has been pretty aggressive in India's backyard of China is a close friend an investor in Pakistan which is India's arch rival next door China's building ports and infrastructure in places nearby like Sri Lanka Nepal across Southeast Asia and even farther afield India is the world's largest democracy Washington sees it as a buffer to China's influence in the region and if India suffers a stinging defeat at the hands of the Chinese military really challenges that idea so what is the Indian government saying so prime minister narendramodi had a coronavirus meeting today and at the start he observed a moment of silence for the slain soldiers he also made his first public comments about this clash hi from the doctor he said India wants peace but that if provoked India is capable of giving a fitting reply and he said India would never compromise its integrity and sovereignty so that sounds pretty tough but it may be aimed more at his domestic audience actually because here's what it sounds like when you turn on the TV in India today he was DVS China devious China has broken the peace after forty five years the consequences our great so that's a TV news anchor sounding pretty angry there's a hashtag trending today trying to get out so there's a lot of emotion in India right now the Indian Army however has been very measured urging commented actually noted that it was the cold that killed the majority of these troops that were wounded in battle but then they succumbed to subzero temperatures is what the army said to technically not killed by this Chinese soldiers the army made that distinction and so seems to be trying to de escalate here okay so in India at least at the government level and attempt to de escalate Emily what is China's government saying what are they telegraphing China is trying to de escalate as fast as possible first of all the average Chinese person is not paying attention to this clash it simply is not a story in China there's been no coverage in state media beyond this military statement and second China's foreign ministry said today that Beijing is maintaining close communications with India and that they both agree dialogue as the way
Indian army: 3 Indian soldiers killed in standoff with Chinese troops along disputed frontier, casualties on both sides

R.'s Lauren Frayer the Indian Army says it was a violent standoff and that there are casualties on both sides tensions have been high in recent weeks with scuffles between Indian and Chinese troops but this is the first deadly incident there in decades the India China border is the world's longest unmarked frontier stretching about twenty five hundred
Indian army: 3 Indian soldiers killed in standoff with Chinese troops along disputed frontier, casualties on both sides
"India's army says three of its troops have been killed in a confrontation with Chinese forces and Chinese military forces also suffered casualties NPR's Lauren Frayer reports this happened on the country's shared border high in the Himalayas the Indian Army says it was a violent standoff and that there are casualties on both sides tensions have been high in recent weeks with scuffles between Indian and Chinese troops but this is the first deadly incident there in decades the India China border is the world's longest on marked frontier stretching about twenty five hundred
What's behind latest India-China border tension?
"Week kindreds, perhaps thousands of Chinese troops crossed China's disputed border with India in the Himalayas minor scuffles along this frontier, a common, but the latest incursion came as a state-owned Chinese paper asserted new claims to land that its nuclear arms neighbor deems Indian and as a sombre backdrop tool. This relations with the United States a worse than they have been in decades, poisoning everything from trade and investment to scientific collaboration. However much all the regional muscle flexing a- pools the world, it makes sense to the Chinese Communist Party in Hong Kong. The party wants to stop a color revolution, which at thinks could bring Democrats to power there despite China's best efforts to rig the system. If eroding Hong. Kong's freedom causes economic damage. So be it party bigwigs reason. The territory is still an important place for Chinese firms to raise international capital especially since the Sino American. Feud makes it harder and riskier for them to do so in New York. But Hong Kong's GDP is equivalent to only three percent of mainland China's now down from more than eighteen percent in nineteen, ninety-seven, because the mainland's economy has grown fifteen fold since then. China's rulers assume that multinational firms and banks will keep a base in Hong Kong simply to be near the vast Chinese market. They're probably right. The simple picture that President Donald trump paints of America and China knocked in confrontation suits, channels rulers well. The party thinks that the balance of PA is shifting in China's favor. Mr Trump's insults feed Chinese nationalist anger, which the Party is delighted to exploit, just as it does any tensions between America and its allies. It portrays the democracy movement in Hong Kong as an American plot. That is absurd, but it helps explain many mainlanders as scorn for Hong Kong's protesters. The rest of the world should stand up to China's bullying. On the Sino Indian border. The two sides should talk more to avoid miscalculations as their leaders promised to in twenty eighteen. China should realize that if it tries the tactics that has used in the South China Sea Building Structures, undisputed ground and daring others to push back. It will be viewed with greater distrust by all its neighbors. In the case of Taiwan China faces a powerful deterrent, a suggestion in American law that America might come to Taiwan's aid where the islands to be attacked. There is a growing risk that a coke. Sure China may decide to put that to the test. America should make clear that doing so would be extremely dangerous. America's allies showed echo that loudly.
How the TPG mobile app will change your travel strategy
"Coming to you from Austin Texas which happens to be the second largest teepee g office. We've got a team of fifteen engineers and product people working on the TV APP and one of our newest hires here. In Austin is a legend in the points. World he is. The founder of travel is free dot com which has been called the goat of all miles points blogs. I'm really excited to announce it he is now a part of TB G. and he's going to be leading development of tools and we're GONNA learn all about that today so drew macomer. Thank you so much for joining us today. Yeah Man Thank You. So drew your foremost expert in points miles. I mean you know these programs in out someone listening like what are some of the tools you've created. What are some of the other apps that you use a lot of times people are like? Where do I begin becoming an expert? What's your advice for that? Well I'd say first of all. Just start earning. Because it's hard if I were just explain to someone who's never heard of it. I'm sure you've seen this where there is. You can see that. They're checking out so I just say. Start earning the points and then once you have them and you go to use them you'll really learn and you'll retain that information because you're going to book a trip. So then it's about maximizing the miles you have if you go to my resource pay so travel is free dot com slash resources. There is a number of resources like this one is a chart that tells you which websites search for which airlines so for example like on American Airlines. It kills me when people search for Hong Kong. You'RE GONNA pay peak pricing to fly on an American jet right when the cafe. Experience is probably so much is so much better than any class of service Ryan. It's probably you know if available half the price or less but people don't know because it doesn't show up online so exactly you're a resource page each currency that you have and where you're trying to redeem you highlight what's not gonNA show online because exactly so for example a so someone who has American Airlines Miles. You have to call to book. People assume that airline websites show everything. But they don't but teaching yourself how to use British Airways Qantas you can search for the availability and then pick up and call. What are some of the other tools that you're particularly proud of for helping people? Mac Smicer points. We'll definitely the one that is used. The most her kind of brings people back are all the hotel maps. So if you have high at points or Marriott points or is g points you can look at where all the five thousand hotels are and there are nice. Five thousand point hotels across the world in each program filter by category on xactly. What are some of those hotels that are like low categories that you've been really impressed by? Are there any ones that in particular that you've loved while you know they always changed So some of them have probably changed a lot. One is in India. They have a park. Hyatt I think in Keanae. That's five thousand points. So where else are you gonNa stay at a Park Hyatt five thousand points? It's just not gonNA happen so honestly anywhere in India China. You're always gonNA get those deals so if you're really wanting to chase deals you could do
Your Guide to Chennai, India
"Welcome to the immature traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about tonigh- I'd I'd like to welcome the show. Amanda from millennial traveler that's traveler with two l's the UK way. Amanda welcome the show whilst thank you so much for having me I I guess in Amanda has come on to talk about southern India tonight. Hi Amanda what's your connection with tonight. Well I must say that I got introduced. I used to southern India specifically because they actually had studied abroad with friends that came from China and years thereafter. They were continuously inviting me to go India. So when I found myself in Southeast Asia I decided to take a detour and reconnect with old friends and get a local point of view about Saddam City of Chennai in. Why should someone tonight India? First of all it does break a lot of the stereotypes regarding India. It it is much more of a spacious city than you would find other cities like Delhi and Mumbai. So I would say it's much less chaotic of an atmosphere. Secondly it also also been ranked one of the most safest cities within India as well as Southeast Asia and also in regards to safer steady for woman so I think that should be appealing feeling initially because I know some people have a lot of hesitation about traveling to India in general good least solo travel especially for some people that's a real barrier. Yes indefinitely so I would say if you want to start traveling in India I definitely go to China as your starters because it has been ranked for its quality of living. I'm safety nece as mentioned well I should say this is not our first show on India and so people can go listen to those what we do actually have one on solo travel for women. I'm Andy if you go way way. Way Way. Back in the archives put a link to that in the show notes. And what kind of do you recommend. I think China is the city. It's not too overwhelming. So you can literally explore the city with about four days and I would say there could be actually left for travelling to the outer parts. I definitely want to get into now for the actual days in the city. First and foremost you need to go to Marina beach which is really a world famous beach because it is indeed the second largest urban beach in the world which is pretty amazing and has such character and charm. There you can find a lot of carnival style L. activities going on as well as it's really awesome being a coastal city that I is you got to witness the fishermen if you wake up earlier of getting their catch of the day and honestly if you can do that and you get to the mark sometime. You'll have some of the freshest seafood you have ever tasted on earth. What thing I should have said before we got into the it is? There's going to be some confusion for some people who are more my age than yours who may not have heard of tonigh- but may have heard of the city of Madrid us and this is the same city. Change the names in one thousand nine hundred eighty six icy so some people don't realize that we're talking about a place they have heard of but that the beam has changed since they had it in elementary school geography or wherever. Yes exactly yeah. The excellent point to make and so the money will generation ration- May know it as tonight but yes. It was formerly known as Mantras that is true so everything has changed. Of course airport name would have changed. The railway station had been Chennai central railway but now has a very complicated name as of this year so can't pronounce that one but that's worth visiting as well. The railway station is amazing. Amazing okay so this old colonial style railway station. I'm guessing then neo Gothic architecture. Quite amazing I believe is built by a European European architects. If I'm not mistaken as one of the most fantastic rarely structured life seen so. You're a fan of that style of architecture or railway stations. The people were passionate about that. It's great and it's the main connecting hub to other cities edge. The train station which I actually took to go to Banglore India which is in a different state China itself being in Tamil Nadu and in addition to that I would also highly recommend going to the Saint Thomas Cathedral Fedral also known as the Sand Tom Cathedral it has a lot of biblical history. Actually being that in fact Thomas one of Jesus's disciples both his last ministry in India China specifically so they built that Cathedral shrine dedicated to him so I thought that was also very amazing and a great historical account of one of these disciples. Let's go back up into this a little more details so when you talk about going to the beach we're going to the beach for usual. Usual beach activities. Are we swimming in. The water is clean enough safe enough to swim in our their water sports. Are we sunbathing. What are we doing when we go to the beach? Besides you mentioned some festivals or other things that are going other one appeal again especially for seafood. Lovers is to come early in the morning anywhere between three or six. Am Ems you can actually wash the fishermen at work. They don't go too far out and then they'll bring their catch. The back sell it out the stalls in the marketplace so it's quite bustling there in terms of the food stalls and that's where you can get some of the finest seafood in India and might be one of the greatest in the world. I personally tasted so. That's something exciting to see their the fishermen activity that takes place as well as the carnival activities. That are there SPO- boot fishermen pulling the Rotunda. The short oh come all borough fishermen and that's what makes it so amazing so these people are obviously doing it for a living and you can see the whole marketplace action. There offers everything from actually getting the catch the day I just selling it directly to the Marquis. Sol's to having your food freshly prepared right in front of you might early. Indication here is that we're GONNA talk about food more than once in this episode guests and quite a few restaurants as well as city is very centered on food and seafood. I of course in particular being nut. It's a coastal city of India. Okay well in food in southern India being different food in northern India. But I think we'll save that for just a a little bit so you took us to the railway station. You took us to the Cathedral. Anything specific we want to say in terms of the railway station were an instagram opportunity. Is there anything else we want to do. Were there well the side that I was thinking of course instagram opportunity. I guess I what structure isn't nowadays. But that's where if you want to find yourself taking a day trip and not having to drive directly out of state. That's a great link to the popular route between Bangor and Bangalore is a very popular steady. My friends friends constantly go on weekend trip from China by car or by train. So that's the thing definitely. Is this worth noting. If you WANNA go beyond Chan I definitely make use of that rally station. The next one and then we'll get back to Bangalore just a little bit in terms of your side trip and then again in terms of the cathedral anything else you WanNa say in terms of things. Should we do a tour the cathedral or just go. Is there anything specific sites. You WanNA point four probably be necessary. It's quite small. Typically if you arrive during the daytime I would say it's fairly empty but it takes you back to your up. I mean whoever has been to the European cathedrals it's definitely that a European style and stained glass asked windows transported on this. They didn't realize I was in India anymore. And then the lower level if you want to make sure you go and check out the strike and like I said of Thomas. The disciple which I thought was pretty incredible. Somebody read about in the Bible and now we're actually standing in the last place. He was next four. We completely clearly leave Marina beach because Saint Thomas Visuals. Not Too far from there musty as well actually the lighthouse and you'll get a spectacular view of the entire beat this aerial view. And what's great about this. Lighthouse is one of the few in the world that actually have an elevator. So you have a fear of heights. It's not not a problem. Furthermore if you WANNA see one of the most famous Hindu temples within the city make sure you go to I hope I don't butcher this name but the capillaries swatter Campbell. Now I have to say I did expect it to be more. Grandiose incised According to local friends and Torres is definitely the most most a frequent did tumble and most famous temple within the city of Nine however I just WanNa make note for tourists as we are indeed foreigners. You won't get to. You have entry into this Ryan side. Just make sure people know that when they go in you can enter the temple. Few move your shoes. And if you're dressed appropriately be won't be able to get astrid entry but if you're curious about that and you want to see where the local people go. This is the most wickets in temple and the outside of it is fairly intricate. An an interesting is probably the right word in terms of all the different figures on this temple. If I've got the right one that I'm thinking of Yes. It is fairly detailed so definitely you can and make a pitstop there. I think that isn't a mile of Hor. Neighborhood was also a great neighborhood to explore the temple in a great neighborhood to explore. What particularly Eh would you recommend that we look for or do or in that neighborhood so in this particular neighborhood there are some great food stall can go to you so again? Taste the local food. They're selling their which will definitely vary from what you'd get in northern India cities like Delhi for example. So that's really great for their in the morning you can check out the south Indian breakfast and have dosa which is this is very flat. Thin layered pancake would remind you of a crepe but but a different texture. So that's something really great to try for their as well as looking for any kind of souvenirs related to the Hindu temple related to you. The dress buying stories for example. It's a perfect place to go from Bulle. Shopping food is do so for breakfast. Eaten with anything else. This is like a pancake so is fresh off the griddle the food stall or do you have it with something. I don't know well even have it either way. Actually but typically I guess it can be served with Chutney. So in my case thing I was introduced in two by the southern Indians is the coconut Chutney. I don't know how common it is in the north but I quite around coconut with other types of herbs and spices attitude so that was really delicious and surprisingly filling breakfasts to have anything else. We should grab from a food stall while we're into definitely you want to check out the Beer Yanni which is classic Indian dish one of my other favorites. I've found was the mango curry. And now this might be unheard of to a lot of people. Because I'll about. How great will curry taste? But through a monster. Ah Skeptical about this dish but it turned out to be really delicious and not very sweet at all. But Savory when we should say Brioni funded all over the country not really a northern dish. Basically coming from the Muslims who came in and very similar to dishes that you would find in Afghanistan for instance her for Pakistan although spicier. It usually probably down here in southern India. Yes you got like. The seafood versions is really well known own for seafood so then that will kind of make it more southern in styles than like seafood phobe more dominant in this
How Hedonism Can Change Our Food System
"That'd be surprised to learn that there is a major monopoly when it comes to seeds globally over a third of all seeds are in the hands of just three companies in this mini episode Dr I'm in sits down with mastermind chef and regenerative agriculture advocate Dan Barber together they discussed the importance of seeds why Dan supports a hedonistic approach to changing the way we out there some of the biggest problems we have are are solvable by actually rethinking how we grow food and that's really what you've come to his chef as solving the problem of hedonism you have to go back to the farm and the seed and the soil grow food empowering message I want to go into the seed coat anything permit it because most people don't understand that there's a seed monopoly out there that the centralization of seed creation production and the selling seeds is happening at scale globally and is undermining local farmers and food producers all over the world and most of them around the world are women and small holders or formal what you just said is a front page New York Times story and I don't know why this is the the the seed industry is now consolidate the point that any new variety of seed that has developed sixty eight percent sixty eight percent is in the hands of three companies Nearly seventy percent of the future of our food is in the hands of three companies choose Monsanto and while Monsanto has just been bought by the by Barry there's dupont and then there's Kim China so there's there's three big players now I mean next time we talk that might be too but that is a frightening reality because because if you if you do and I think you should look at seeds as the blueprint for the whole system then you're talking about these companies controlling the system is that just a see that doesn't taste good at I number it's a blueprint for how you're supposed to farm and that's what scares me is that you're you roll out everything from the amount of acreage that should go on the where it should be grown you know forget rotations it's not in that but that whole baked all the way to the processor is what we're talking about that's how baked in it is that's a monopoly knowing what what I find most interesting is that the three companies we just mentioned are not seed companies chemical companies yeah they're creating seeds to sell their close right in like the it's what roundup ready sees the cause and what incentive do you have in that scenario to create a strong seed that doesn't need the chemical intervention I yeah there's not and that's where it's the David and Goliath story it's like that's crazy and people don't understand that because there's so much mixed messaging and because people don't think of food as as C. Driven you know we think too much of it actually as farm and Soil Germany even though guy we should be thinking more about small farms and diversified Zim biodiverse farms in soil and regenerate farms their all important but the seed is the blueprint for how that stuff gets into play and that's where that's why went to the seeds because you can you can have the best farmer like this Guy Klaus Martins mentioned the being I went to visit the most the best rotations the most regenerative and biologically diverse soil if you ever see that doesn't have the genetics to be expressed than what are we talking about you cannot have a delicious Haute or a delicious carrot that has is a bad seed grown in bad soil probably wasn't grown locally probably wasn't picked the right moment none of those things can happen and have a delicious jaw-dropping the experience it's impossible it's so it was beautiful as it when you focus on hedonism it solves the world's problems healthier is a soil that's tickets movement I think it's because while it may seem fringy or esoteric or on the margin it actually is putting a crack in and the whole agriculture system in crack in our thinking about food and when you combine that with these other huge transfer seeing which is the decline of our health the species and the obesity and diabetes epidemics and the decline of our environment and the climate change were experiencing and all the economic burden that comes from that I mean Z.. Global problem that has solutions but they start at the farm and have to rethink that it and really appreciating it through truly great food truly great flavor is one one waited to up end the paradigm that we have now we are now going out to eat more and more and this isn't just white tablecloth residents down for an experience that is unique to the region and and that's where the power of the culture comes into play we have to breed for that and that's what we're trying to do because that's also where the healthiest seeds are gonNA come from the culture but the environment what is specific about the region soil and micro-climate that will make this seed is fits all I want the seat to work the exact same in New York California Michigan Texas Canada Mexico India China and that Boyer the dumbed down the genetics to do that that much I know and flavor is just tamped down everything has tamp down but my point is if you eat the diversity that's required in the organic system you not only have this incredible array of flavors and nutrition at your disposal but you also have the regeneration of the soil which is true sustainability so that's I just think the ticket is this is this deliciousness and this you celebrate Tori hedonistic look at food which is so interesting because that's what cuisines and cultures have taught us over time for thousands of years seeds were saved and exchange as part of community self-preservation sadly between nineteen o three and nineteen eighty three we lost an astonishing ninety three percent of our unique seed varieties this resulted in more than just a lack of selection at the market seemed diversity compliments soil diversity and unique seed varieties allow farmers our chance at a productive harvest this doubles as a form of insurance if one crop doesn't grow as hoped there are others to fall back on Conventional Agriculture Embraces Mono Culture meaning one crops may be grown over thousands of acres and then the same thing is growing again after harvest this depletes the nutrients in the soil and puts the farmer at risk should think threatened that particular crop it also perpetuates a farmer's reliance on government subsidies by cultivating seeds based on flavor and variety and supporting growers who were passionate about regenerative agriculture not only will our food tastes better but we will begun to shift food system and exciting and positive new
Irrigation For Farming Could Leave Many Of The World's Streams and Rivers Dry
"All right to a new scientific study that shows trouble ahead for the world's streams and rivers that is because people are draining underground aquifers that provide water to those streams. NPR's Dan Charles has more Joshua Perkin is a biologist at Texas A and M University studies fish and he spent a lot of time around water on the high plains in Kansas us in Colorado. He's noticed an odd thing there streams and rivers disappear we will go and visit these dreams and in many cases. It's like a dirt bike trail now. It's it's no longer functioning. As a stream channel. Those streams were partially fed by groundwater water moving underground through rock and sand draining into stream beds ed's or bubbling up in natural springs but people have been tapping those underground pools of water drilling deep wells mostly irrigate farmland. You know oh growing crops in a region that semi-arid becoming increasingly arid in the way that you continue to grow crops when there's no rain is to pull water from the ground and farmers have pumped so much water. The water table has fallen by more than one hundred feet in some places so it can't flow into streams and rivers anymore which means that fish fish and plants and birds streams also disappear. It's happened in other places to California northern India China hydrologist Inga the graph at the University of Freiburg. Germany wanted to see the whole global picture today and in the future I think that's one of the goals that we have with this study raising awareness to explain what what is happening in our feet showed shea she and her colleagues created a computer simulation of groundwater and rivers all around the world they threw in a heavy dose of climate change and extreme scenario lots of warming in this computer model the future there's less rainfall farmers pump even more more water to make up for that so in places where farmers rely on groundwater the water flow in streams and rivers in this model shrinks dramatically in half of them at falls below a kind of ecological limit healthy ecosystems can be sustained the plan and fish that live in the river or lakes they. Ehlo by her paper appears this week in the journal Nature. It's pretty alarming national things he can do about it devoted slowing global warming of course some places like California are starting to reduce the amount of groundwater that farmers are allowed to extract.

The two nations are prepared to work together. Since india revoked the special status of kashmir will to bring us up to date on the situation. I'm joined by shruti. Kapila who teaches indian history and politics at the university of cambridge welcome back to monocle twenty four thirty and could you just briefly update us on the relations between india and pakistan after indians move to revoke special status last month well it has been you could say a kind of a month of up and down and relations where you've seen on the one hand india taking quite an aggressive <hes> position on on cushman and has been backed significantly and to a large extent by it's it's better strategic <hes> old and a new partners having said that in hong kong has at the prime minister of sun has launched a blistering a social media media campaign a pointing out to as it were a india's donald aggression and and the problem with cushman so now this comes after on the backdrop of already very tense relations between inbox son if you recall the big terror attack in in mid february which was a changed as it were the electoral <unk> atmosphere in india so yes i mean now <hes> and when you had as it were the pulling off or or the the space between india and pakistan was also shut down so today you're in a curious place where the indian high commissioner and barnstorm on has been thrown out. He's not there you have these dialogues of the dialogue on seek boot rummages going on and and at the same time a very massive campaign obtain and bluster on both sides so it does not say what exactly is happening except that there is a kind of a game of brinksmanship going on in search for some kind of international supremacy over the suit so tell us a little bit more about these discussions that are taking place about access s. two holy site in pakistan <hes> the issue that people are talking about his crossing over at the carter poke corridor which is used by thousands of sikhs every single year. All people deliberately trying to find moments of connection here between injure in pakistan is a genuine sign here that some dialogue at some level is being accepted. I think it's a bit of both liquor. Thakore cora dole has been long in the making and put it in context context. It's it it is very much about the sikhs who at the time <hes> lost as world solve their holiest sites what do do bucks sound so this has been something that has been been in the making for decades and actually here as to the provincial governments addict a much more active role at the same time. If you look at ron cons rhetoric he's very keen to to sound good on make good to indian indian minorities where that sikhs muslims or christians but this seems to be as it were a very small gesture because of their other bigger a issues which seemed to be much more recalcitrant to dialogue and you mentioned the of imraan counting very public about this. I mean pakistan on has been calling on the international community to support their case and how much does that's half worked. I think as the clampdown goes for longer as you will recall the kashmir valley is under has been under security clampdown for now a full month and i think the indian government we'll find it claude to keep a to keep the goodwill on its side often such as long as toward suspension of of of rights of its citizens citizens that so i think <hes> but at the same time i think it's it's old kushner is also a moving piece of changes in the geostrategic strategic considerations of whether it's about a sandbox son india china china russia and i think no major par is willing to as it were <hes> you know bush is median side and that's why india has way not feast up onto now any serious criticism.

"It hard to believe. It was attention if you want to know the truth, I think that it could have been somebody who was loose and stupid that it will be able to recruit back and you'll understand exactly what happened, but it was very foolish move. I can tell you, right. That's the president reacting and responding to the drone shot down in international waters. This on the heels of two oil tankers that secretary of state Mike Pompeo as the rainy revolutionary guard responsible for taking down as well. Iran made a very big mistake. The president said time, you will see which, you know, I don't know why people don't listen to Donald Trump because he's very transparent. And he's been very clear that and I agree with him that we ought not be telegraphing anything about any military action to anybody, it, we know that there is a situation room meeting going on, even as we speak, and we know that the best, the brightest smartest military minds in the world will make the right decision, and it's going to be interesting to see as the Iranians now the sanctions that the president is put on a ran has literally brought their economy now to it's knees. And. Nobody is dependent as we once all were on the oil coming out of the street. So Hormuz and being energy independent. For the first time in seventy five years, has put us in a much stronger position to deal with Iran or anybody else in the Middle East. Anyway, hour two Sean Hannity show. Joining us now, former speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich eight Mr Speaker, good to speak with you again. By the way, you're on Hannity last night before we went to the president and the president's on the linings. No, I want to hear what Newt house to say, let's finish. I thought that was wild to great nights in a row between five million people tuning into your show on Tuesday nights the kickoff, and then having the president's off- calling him last night, have too many back to early indicators over four million and CNN can't break a million a single hour of the day, most days, but, you know, who's and by the way, they earn the distrust that, that people have. How do you interpret the president's comments? I interpret it. Very simply as I have not decided on. I'm not gonna tell you at I'm not going to telegraph. Yeah, I probably would say, I don't know whether he's decided, or not, I do agree that, even if he has decided he is better off to not saying anything triggers when we're gonna doing our opponents should always be worried about what we might do. I think that's a, that's a key thing to think about. We all need to tell them in advance, the sometimes they can learn when the bomber arrived also think never sits on several occasions, including the Korean both. Missile now that the really has been an effort on the part of the president to avoid escalating things. And it's almost as though he is trying very hard to, to let things solve themselves and high suspect that he's also trying to give the TOA an opportunity here to fix it. You know, some person did this wasn't me now the problem for the Iranians. Is there isn't come a moment when the president is going to think a hammer them very, very hard? And I think that, that if they keep pushing we making a huge mistake. Triple pale has been quite clear about this. So I don't think that any way out of the woods that is you, you correctly, pointed out the sanctions have really begun to bite, and people need to remember when you talk about the strengths harmless, we have no immediate vested interest. India, China and Japan have an enormous interest Europe is a secondary interest. So the combination of the three those are places where he goes, people who are really, really worried. And I think part of what the United States is trying to do is to get them to step up and agree. The will internationally police, the water's, not just of the Americans. Do it, you know. But the thing is I, I have really thought long and hard an often about, I would like to see the next generation of American technology and military might evolve as quickly as possible. Now, I know that was part of the president's agenda, and I remember the president said I'd never do this deal. Except I need. What was what close to eight hundred? Hundred billion dollars or in monies for the defense department which had been depleted in the Biden, Obama years for the very purpose of building the next generation of weaponry, and I'll tell you why serve. Because you look at Vietnam, we lost fifty eight thousand people there are our national treasure. Our men are our children and between Iraq and Afghanistan, you know, nearly ten thousand and so many others. Disfigured and losing legs and limbs and facing difficulties now for the rest of their lives. I never liked the idea. We didn't even have in the beginning of the Iraq, conflict up armored humvees. I didn't like that American treasure. Our men and women were knocking on doors, one door after another door and all the ideas were set for them. And I don't like the fact that in both cases, the wars became politicized in Washington and immediately, when that happens. Then the idea of winning the war goes out the window, and they're all talking about an exit strategy without victory. And so I think that I would like to see the. Future American might and wars before. But let's just say from Tampa to pick a random city if I might if I might well, look, I, I wanna really praise you for second because you put your finger on the real deal, which is the treasurer, we lose these wars, his young men and women. It's not our money money's replaceable, but those young men and women are not. And they are the very hard, who we are as a country, and we've always had a pattern of investing in technology to save lives. And I think that the president has been exactly right. The, the turnaround from the Obama years, weakness to the Trump years of strength has been enormous, and part of that has been a willingness much like Ronald Reagan to put rebuilding the American military very, very high on his agenda. One of the things that has happened in the Trump ears. And I've often said this, the prior to Donald Trump being on the world stage, that, really, there was one voice won't voice of moral clarity in the world, and Churchillian figure in his own right out of. Sheer necessity, and that's prime minister Netanyahu, and it was a shame and inform. The government I'm pretty certain win again. And he will get that government formed. I hope so. But as a result of fear of the ambition of these mullah's in Iran nuclear weapons, coupled with their desire to white bisrael off the map and, and chant death to Israel and desk to America, and white America off the map that there has a new alliance has formed that might have been unprecedented even three years ago between the United States Israel, the AGIP shins are Jordanians the Saudis the Emirates against Iranian. Gemini now to me, the fact that they're sharing more intelligence and getting along better behind the scenes than ever before. Well, that raises the prospect of a real long piece possibility in the Middle East, but for ran now being supported by Putin. Oh, I think that's right. And I think that the we need to recognize is very real possibility that we're going to see I think. The future much more tight relationship between Saudi Arabia, Egypt Jordan, and Israel, and then that may will be the basis of a real peace agreement having nothing to do with direct negotiations with the Palestinians, but everything to do with the profound underlying change between the Sunni Arab states and their fear. They're very deep fear. The Iranians where do you think, you know, look, the straits of Hormuz don't have the importance, they once had now? It's certainly an important shipping lane for the lifeblood of every economy, which makes us idiotic new green deal even more insane oil and gas is the lifeblood of every economy, the idea that we're going to get rid of using oil and gas in ten years is not only a fantasy. It would be the destruction of the US economy that simple. But more importantly, it does give us more leverage. It does. Give us more of an opportunity to be strategic rather than reactive in terms of how we deal with conflicts in the Middle East when you agree. Oh, no. There's no question that our ability to be energy, independent are literally to, to continue to build on the brakes is fracking, give us enormous leverage, both with the Russians with Venezuela, and in the Middle East, and I think it has been just, you know, but I think Trump himself is this another that said when you look at what you would have expected to happen with the price of oil, and you realize how little impact the Iranians of head that's really attributed to Texas and to North Dakota and the happening all across America in the natural gas fields. There's something horribly unjust going on right now in America ninety percent of burglaries never solved. They think about that ninety percent burglary victims than ever going to get there.

And so I think for moment, I think SU should be avoided being India, China India pockets on privately. And I think any. Adventure in this regard will be I think mental to hold mandate of you and I think than be kind of, like, kind of like a condition of that we have seen the had now had become defunct, all because of this, India Pakistan's ivory. So remind opinion, SU suit nor Amy India biliteral issues could be discussed in which, and about bilateral ties between China and India, of course, we are talking about this on the sideline of the summit, and we're talking about the general relationship. Dr John, how to both countries define this pair of ties after the one summit between the two state leaders, and also after the general election in India this year. What's needed to maintain the current positive momentum? You know that vanish that Moore has. On elections. And now he's more willing to buy them into India. He has more fish than the previous one here now Pete hundred fish in the moment of five hundred forty two. So I and then we have these upon informal on imply that we are talking about and distinctly of diminishing movie had invited percents being for the second round of informers from in road, the right on the constitute superior by Mr. Moore has own second time. So I would. Being kind of optimistic real India, and China can continue the momentum of this speech that we have to, you know, plummeted into the sun and buying buying continue this spirit, I think India and China could leverage this that own disputes on the like maybe like a deficit or is like the person on pension or it you so I think these momentum needed for further strength in India, China relationship, we lose any, this speech or like weren't, I think that would be kind of, like detrimental to India, China relative, and maybe the deficit on the border dispute, or maybe, like the, the concern on the bench before entrance defied. So I would be rather pity to see that Ritter more becoming the power. Insisting after this more of these on his party. I think both are very strong at their own beach. So I would say that leaders have now the sponsor of the to take India China momentum to greater fight. So Tyndall this time that uring they're meeting between president Xi and Prentice Modi on the sideline Bishkek president. She caught on Indian side to work with China to protect the rightful development rights of developing countries. So what more can we expect in this room? Well, obviously, you know there are a lot of commonality, I would say between China and India, there's a joke in, like, in the international some meetings, if the Chinese Representative Mr.. A paper of speech from the Indian side, basically, the media will be the same because the two countries facing similar.

"News ninety six point five WDBO we've already been up tweeting about Iran they close attention to that by the way there's a real divide between us and Europe about how to deal with these arrangements sanctions and a lot. Of people are worried that the worst today are only gonna, escalate, things with Iran we've already escalated things with, the, Chinese, and, obviously, the Koreans that. Is Jim Banda high. On another, network this morning and talking about the worry with North Korea as well as the problems. We're having tried to solve their and how Might affect Iran as we say this deal is terrible for us to continue to abide by even though they got most of the stuff upfront including money. Lieutenant Colonel Allen west joins us understand the global affairs as well as domestic affairs I up I know you will for ripping up this deal are you concerned at all that Europe India China might not go along with the Colonel No To be with you. Brian the most important thing is that we need to just ask these countries either you stand for liberty and, freedom or you stand with c. number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the. World when you look at what Iran has done in the Middle East, region they expansion into Iraq their expansive and support in, Syria supporting Hezbollah as well AS Roma's and the UC rebels and what they're. Doing they're in, Yemen rockets and missiles into Saudi. Arabia if that's what you wanna stand, for then United States is not going to be with the United States is not going to be of. Allah and when you look at what has happened between, Russia China and, Iran and North, Korea we know that that's a real access of the twenty first, century though there was much collusion with rockets and and nuclear missile and ballistic missile development and. Testing we know that Iran is very important for Russia to have a foothold in the. Beliefs so I think that Iran is an important linchpin and you know undermine This this current axis of, those four countries where I notice even John Bolton when he was a adviser here. We always talk about regime change in North Korea and Iran he's not, saying it now and Jane Harman gave us a pretty, good reason why cut nine what's the endgame what does Trump's in game if. It's regime collapsed, in Iran might be because if. The economy tanks further there could be, more citizens unrest and so forth but if our goal is regime collapsed and I think Bolton said the. Goal was regime change the message to Kim Jong UN, and North Korea, is UK's if, your family's been devoted for seventy years for regime survival and now, you just saw the deal signed by Iran not only be blown up but then the administration. That signed it with others a call for regime clap regime change why would Kim be. Motivated to do anything so that one would link, to the other, right Well this is the. Thing we have to understand the the Iranian nuclear agreement was, unilateral endeavor, agreement the Obama, administration was not a treaty it did not go to normal constitutional processes and in the city so therefore, President Trump is not bound to it by any way shape, all the cash is just the same. Executive order I think the message that is sent to. Kim Jong is? That you have an opportunity? To straighten up and fly right we're gonna put the pressure on China and, you see the South Korea's now standing up to. You as well if you wanna have regime survival you can you know join the civilization of nations with your human rights violations were happier and you can have that conomic success growth and prosperity or else and that's. I think the lesson do that you should see compromise, a peace negotiation acquiescence all, the symbols of signs of weakness of the Obama, administration have gone there is, no more. Strategic patience there is the more leading from? Behind there is no more you know sitting down And giving people money hoping that they. Will act right because we see. That nothing has changed with the belligerent and now to behavior, of the, Iranian regime So we know there's going to be a big election special election today you know high and you have. A major, test I think for the president because he went out there. And he had a major, rally patrol balder sin as he takes on. Danny O'Connor it's a. It's one of those districts that we saw before in Pennsylvania but this one in Ohio the Republicans have dominated for thirty six? Years if Alderson doesn't prevail do you believe it's a bellwether for a possible Blue Wave in November I don't think that there will? Be a Blue Wave I mean they're going to be some districts to, be, loss and it again, this is a special election so you're gonna have to come back and if I'm correct about the, constitution they're, going to have, to rerun this again in November so the concern, is that the, president did go there the president did for his, economic agenda out there to the constituents, says that district and when you. Look at the the democrat opposition I mean what are they going to run on and it's so. This is going to be a an election where people well it's about the turnout but, if people turn out there in Ohio and I understand that, they're better off, than they were you know the previous administration I, think they'll, be successful but but they will without a doubt people will try to say if the Republicans loose there's a district that is. Quote unquote, a bellwether of things to come but I don't think we. Can take this one isolated, incident and translate that all across the country. I have news for. You and I don't know if you will have a pen handy but Case people ask you, later Rosie o'donald doesn't like President Trump and she's the latest, yeah Yeah The latest celebrity just have a. Meltdown Robert de Niro comes to, mind Jim, Carey ongoing sketches of. People I just I can't even relate why the president would even want his Hollywood walk of fame recognize or star there. Anymore this is beyond me so she can't handle. That he's still the president that he's is actually going. Up so she's bringing musical performance down there to sing a music series of musicals in front of the White. House the only problem which seems like a great plan is the president signed even. There so she's actually went so. Far I need your professional advice of how to handle. This this is what she said is the reason why his rallies are so crowded cut there?
