"You very much for joining us. Another story that surfaced this week, the federal prosecutor appointed by Attorney General Bill Bar To review unmasking requests by Obama administration officials has completed his work and found no substantive wrongdoing. U. S Attorney John bash provided no criminal charges, no public report and also left the department just last week. For more on this story will speak to Matt Sabotage Key reporter at the Washington Post and we start off by talking about just what unmasking is unmasking is when a government official get some kind of sensitive intelligence documents, and there are references to us people. Often times those references are basked or redacted. So instead of seeing a name like Massa Patoski, you might see us person one or reporter one, and they do that to protect people's privacy, even inside the government, right? If I'm a government official reading that I might want to know who that is. So I understand this intelligence product better so I would make a request to unmask that name. So instead of saying reporter one it would say Washington Post reporter Matt Sabotage key. It's a very common practice. The name unmasking Kind of has this CD undertone like you're revealing someone exposing someone out in the world. But it's really not that it's just revealing something internally in the government. So you understand it better, Sir. John Bash this U. S attorney has tasked with Getting this practice because it was used a lot during the Obama administration again. Nothing untoward about that necessarily. But Republicans were concerned because some requests were made to unmask maids. And they turned out to unmask names of people associated with President Trump, particularly former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. This generate some outrage among conservative John Bash explorers that he ultimately find. As you said, no substantive doing. I have to say I haven't Read his full findings. Air reports so people should know that. But people were familiar with his work, described it and says it just doesn't live up to these conservative expectations of some grand conspiracy to you know, and that he wouldn't even be a conspiracy on Mass because there's nothing wrong with that. But unmask maids do something improper beyond doubt. And that's one of the interesting parts of it is that there was no public report made about this. He released the report. Give it to Bill Bar. That's pretty much the end of it. And then US Attorney John Bash left the department last week, so really doesn't seem like you're going to hear any more about this. At least for now. The department has made the decision to just not say anything, not release a public report, not even release an official statement saying. This investigation is over, and we found no wrongdoing. And as you mentioned John Bash left the department his last day was on Friday he had told the attorney general about a month ago, right around the time this wrapped up that he was going to leave, so it doesn't seem like a least in the short term. We're going to hear about anything more about what he found at least through official channels. But certainly at the Washington Post were and continue to report and see what more we can learn about what he found beyond that sort of top line conclusion. President Trump has been talking about this for quite some time saying, You know, there's a lot of wrongdoing in the Obama administration because of this This report doesn't really fit into that part of the narrative. Why else would we not be seeing some type of public report on this? Well, we don't have a good explanation for why the Justice Department isn't releasing it. Critics, I think would say, Look, this doesn't support what President Trump would want, which is that there's some grand conspiracy to wrong him, so the Justice Department is sitting on that they don't want evidence out there. That doesn't support the kind of attacks Trump is making on his political opponents, but there could be more innocuous reasons to write to Justice Department. Generally doesn't like to take public steps in cases that could have consequences on the election close to the election. Some people think of this as a 60 Day rule or 90 day roll Munich. You're within that time frame of the election. There's no formal rule like that. But tradition just calls not to do that. The Justice Department also generally doesn't comment on investigations either when they're started or when they're ended. If there are no charges now, this case is a little unusual because the department spokeswoman Announced this investigation of this review publicly on Sean Hannity's show, So there's some expectation if you say it's open. You've got to stay close. The department hasn't provided us a reason as to why they're not saying anything about the end of it or revealing results, and we do know some of the names of the people that we're looking into people that were making the unmasking requests. One of them was former vice president Joe Biden. This whole thing got started. Kind of back in May, when three Republican senators made public this list of officials who had made unmasking requests. The acting director of intelligence time record now had declassified that list and it was a Who's Who of you know of top Obama administration officials. The biggest name was obviously former vice president by there was former White House chief of staff Denis McDonough. Jim Comey, the former FBI director. Brennan, the former CIA director, James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence. So a lot of the household names at least here in Washington that served in the Obama administration and Republicans, in particular, highlighted Vice President Biden's name. I think their critics would say for political reasons..

Kind of back in May when three Republican senators made public this list of officials who had made unmasking requests. The acting director of intelligence at the time, Rick Grenell, had be classified that list and it was a Who's Who of you know of top Obama administration officials. The biggest name was obviously former vice president by there was former White House chief of staff Denis McDonough. Jim Comey, the former FBI director John Brennan. The focus CIA director James Clapper, the former Director of national intelligence, So a lot of deadly household names, at least here in Washington that served in the Obama administration and Republicans, in particular, highlighted Vice President Biden's name. I think their critics would say for political reasons. They just want to connect him with a masking, which is the CD word and suggest wrongdoing. When again there's nothing something inherently wrong. It's sort of so routine for government officials to say who is that that practice has continued into the Trump administration. Behind it was the name of people who made Unmasking requests. That is, in part why Republicans were so interested in this well, the reporters out Now what has been the reaction and what has been the reaction to your reporting as well? And my understanding is President Trump is not happy about this. President Trump is not happy generally that the department is not targeting his political foes. He's been particularly upset at another pro by this guy named John Durham, who's kind of investigating the Russian investigation. That's so dogged President Trump's campaign and, you know, this is just another thing that is going to hurt him. I have to say some of the reaction to the reporting is people saying, Look, this doesn't surprise me at all. I knew all along national security. Legal analyst saying, Well, of course, I knew all along there was nothing wrong with unmasking, and they're really pointing to bash investigation and saying, Look, we always thought this was a political exercise. It would give President Trump something to point to and say, Ha. My opponents are under investigation. When really it was always destined to kind of lead to this conclusion that there wasn't any substantive from doing Matt's Patoski reporter at The Washington Post. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you. Don't.

"Oscar Ramirez in you're listening to the Daily Dive weekend edition. The Post or Rudy Giuliani have not made this available to others to authenticate. But in the article you talk about How The New York Post is kind of published. Pdf Pronounce of this or a photo made of the email. There's no metadata attached to this no headers on this, so it makes it that much more difficult for other people to authenticate to believe it, let's say Exactly, And that was one of the strange things about the article is that they did print some e mails where you could see metadata but not the so called smoking gun email. That was just a photograph of an email. One of the other interesting things surrounding all of this, I think is how Facebook and Twitter responded to this right away. They try to limit the spread of this article. I guess while they were trying to authenticate this also, but they weren't letting it float around. So widely as you know anything else, really. Well, I think everyone has learned a bit of a lesson from four years ago. And where there's lots of stuff doled out by wiki leaks. There was hacked material and some of it when you investigated it. Afterwards, the spindle was put on it was completely false. So, for instance, there was one of the wiki leaks. Emails respects to saying that Hillary Clinton had used Clinton Foundation funds to pay for our daughter's wedding. I investigated it and turned out it was completely false. So we at the Washington Post have set up some pretty strict guidelines for how you treat this material in the final weeks before an election. Yeah, just be much more careful about it, because you don't want A news organization to be manipulated. Someone trying to swing the election with something that could well turn out to be fake, And I'm wondering how much weight this really holds, where reports already of millions of people that have already cast our ballots through early voting really just kind of wondering where this takes us. Well, that's a good question. I think that for people who are supporting Biden or are against Trump another story about Hunter Biden possibly somehow cashing in on his prestige of his father. That's a bit of an old story, and particularly when you measure it against what the Trump family has done in terms of cashing in on the presidency, and things like that carefully reported undocumented stories that have appeared in The Washington Post, New York Times, So For those people. They're not going to mean much for people who are trump supporters who have cared avidly about this story. It will confirm what they already believed, but they were going to vote for Trump anyway. And in fact, most polls indicate there few people On the fence or undecided, and I'm not sure this kind of story is something that would swing someone one way or the other. You know, it doesn't rank very high in the polls. What people seem to care about is what's gonna happen with the economy.

"He has no idea. He knows nothing about anything. Nothing at all on then it gets released today that he was a big gun massacre. So how do you know nothing of you? One of the unmasking is joining us now is Matt's Patoski reporter at the Washington Post. Thanks for joining us, Matt. Thanks for having me. The federal prosecutor that Attorney General Bill Bar has tapped to investigate whether Obama administration officials had improperly request the unmasking of individuals during the 2016 election. Has concluded his probe and he didn't find any substantive wrongdoing in his probe through all this US attorney John Bash Matt tell us a little bit about What this report says in and a primer on unmasking because my understanding from reading all this is a pretty common thing to do. So unmasking is when a government official get some kind of sensitive intelligence document and there are references to us people. Often times those references are basked or redacted. So instead of seeing a name like Massa Patoski, you might see us person want or reporter one and they do it to protect people's privacy, even inside the government, right? If I'm a government official reading that I might want to know who that is. I understand this intelligence product better so I would make a request to unmask that name. So instead of saying reporter one it would say a Washington Post reporter Matt Sabotage key. It's a very common practice. The name unmasking Kind of has this CD undertone like you're revealing someone exposing someone out in the world. But it's really not that it's just revealing something internally in the government. So you understand it better. So, John Bash this U. S attorney has tasked with Getting this practice because it was used a lot during the Obama administration again. Nothing untoward about that necessarily. But Republicans were concerned because some requests were made to unmask maids. And they turned out to unmask names of people associated with President Trump, particularly former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. This generate some outrage among conservatives, John Bash explorers that he ultimately find. As you said, no substantive wrongdoing. I have to say I haven't read his whole findings or report so people Should know that but people were familiar with his work described, it says it just doesn't live up to these conservative expectations of some grand conspiracy to you know that it wouldn't even be a conspiracy on Mass because there's nothing wrong with that. But unmask maids do something improper beyond doubt. And that's one of the interesting parts of it is that there was no public report made about this. He released the report. Give it to Bill Bar. That's pretty much the end of it. And then US Attorney John Bash left the department last week, so really doesn't seem like going to hear any more about this. At least for now. The department has made the decision to just not say anything, not release a public report not even released an official statement saying. This investigation is over, and we found no wrongdoing. And as you mentioned John Bash left the department his last day was on Friday he had told the attorney general about a month ago, right around the time this wrapped up that he was going to leave, so it doesn't seem like a least in the short term. We're going to hear about anything more about what he found at least through official channels. But certainly at the Washington Post were and continue to report and see what more we can learn about what he found beyond that sort of top line conclusion. President Trump has been talking about this for quite some time saying, You know, there's a lot of wrongdoing in the Obama administration. Because of this, this report doesn't really fit into that part of the narrative. Why else would we not be seeing some type of public report on this critics, I think would say, Look, this doesn't support what President Trump would want, which is that there's some grand conspiracy to wrong him. So the Justice Department sitting on that they don't want evidence out there. That doesn't support the kind of attacks Trump is making on his political opponents. But there could be more innocuous regions to write. The Justice Department generally doesn't like to take public steps in cases that could have consequences on the election close to the election. Some people think This has a 60 Day rule or 90 Day rule Munich you within that time frame of the election. There's no formal rule like that. But tradition just calls not to do that. The Justice Department also generally doesn't comment on investigations either when they're started or when they're ended. If there are no charges now, this case is a little unusual because the department spokeswoman announced this investigation of this review publicly on Sean Hannity's show, So there's some expectation. If you say it's open. You've got to stay close on. The department hasn't provided us a reason. It's so wide there not saying anything about the end of it or revealing results. And we do know some of the names of the people that we're looking into people that we're making the unmasking requests. One of them was former vice president Joe Biden. This whole thing got started. Kind of back in May when three Republican senators made public this list of officials who had made unmasking requests. The acting director of intelligence at the time, Rick Grenell, had be classified that list and it was a Who's who you know of top Obama administration officials. The biggest name was obviously former vice president by there was former White House chief of staff Denis McDonough. Jim Comey, the former FBI director. John Brennan, the former CIA director. James Clapper, the former Director of national intelligence. So a lot of the household names at least here in Washington that served in the Obama administration and Republicans, in particular, highlighted Vice President Biden's name. I think their critics would say for political reasons. They just want to connect him with a masking, which is the C word and suggest wrongdoing. When again there's nothing something inherently wrong. It's sort of so routine for government officials to say who is that that practice has continued into the Trump administration. What has been the reaction and what has been the reaction to your reporting as well. My understanding is President Trump is not happy about this. President Trump is not happy generally that the department is not targeting his political foes. He had been particularly upset at another pro by this guy named John Durham, who's kind of investigating the Russian investigation. That's so dogged President Trump's campaign and you know, this is just another thing that is going to hurt him. I have to say some of the reaction to the Porting is people saying, Look, this doesn't surprise me at all. I knew all along national security, you know, legal analyst saying, Well, of course, I knew all along there was nothing wrong with unmasking and they're really pointing to bash investigation and saying, Look, we always thought this was a political exercise. It would give President Trump something to point to and say, Ha! My opponents are under investigation. When really it was always destined. To kind of lead to this conclusion that but there wasn't any substantive from doing Matt's Patoski reporter at the Washington Post. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you,.

Trump investigation into Obama concludes without charges

"Federal prosecutor handpicked by the Attorney General William Bah to investigate whether Obama administration officials that mishandled classified intelligence relating to the Russia investigation has wrapped up his work without finding wrongdoing or considering challenges. The conclusion of an investigation by US Attorney John Bash into the so called unmasking of names in intelligence reports by a bomb or officials was seen as a defeat for Donald Trump and blah who appeared to be fishing for damaging information that could be used against former vice president Joe Biden a second federal investigation launched by Bar, into Obama era investigations of Russian election tampering. In this case led by US Attorney John Dharam of Connecticut likewise has failed to bear political fruit before the presidential election. Dharam continues to investigate the origins of investigations into Russian election meddling and trump campaign contacts with Russian operatives. Trump asserts the trump Russia investigation was a political hit job. However, the Russia investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller resulted in the indictment of thirty four individuals and criminal charges against half a dozen trump associates including multiple guilty pleas. The unmasking conducted during the Obama Administration revealed the former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn a key figure in the 2016 trump campaign was in the crosshairs of the Russia investigation which had picked up contacts between Flynn and Russian operatives that Flynn later lied about. That revelation proved to be politically damaging trump the emergence of Flynn's deep ties to Russian. Operatives, which he later admitted falsely denying led to his resignation as national security advisor was an early blow for the trump administration that investigation would intern fuelled demands for trump's impeachment. After it was revealed, the US president had pressured the Ukrainian president to. Generates negative headlines about Biden and his. Son.

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is aiming to remind the world that the US is a force for good, he told reporters. That goes for a number of conflicts around the world where America is trying to find a resolution that includes the battle between Armenia and Azerbaijan along with ongoing issues in Belarus. Pompeo also noted the recent Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the United Nations World Food Program. There are no criminal charges or a public report of the so called unmasking probe. The report in The Washington Post comes after the departure of US Attorney John Bash last week. He was appointed by Attorney General Bill Bar and tasked with investigating if Obama administration officials did anything wrong and asking for some people to be unmasked unmasked means that the names of the people would be revealed even though intelligence documents didn't name them.

"I'm John bash this is the John Batchelor show there is a deadline in October at the United Nations Security Council a decision to be made about Tehran the Islamic Republic of Iran a predator state the decision is not obvious however it has to do with sanctions for conventional weapons then and then tell the blue of the foundation for the defense of democracies as senior fellow is here to explain this choice and how it is that the powers are once again pointing fingers and blame shifting and the result might be that Iran for the first time with the blessing of the United Nations Security Council starts buying and acquiring major weapons systems non nuclear major weapon systems but I'm a very good evening to you if I report correctly the U. S. is against the intention to lift the sanctions is that correct is the U. S. joined by other members of the security council or are there mitigating stories between now and October good evening to a very good evening to you John thanks for having me right now it seems like Washington is the lower the calls to extend the wild one multi lateral arms embargo previously there was an armed apart with that prohibited tech Ron from importing exporting conventional weapons in an attack on kind of did that anyway well with relative but not that much impunity in the pre JCPOA the pre Iran nuclear deal era if you may remember one of the big giveaways of the deal when it sanctions relief is being extended multiple times in the summer of twenty fifteen with that the request pressing for this conventional arms embargo to lack and lo and behold five years in the deal October twenty twenty three weeks before the US presidential election that embargo is that to collapse making the U. S. really the only one with the unilateral sanctions remain in place the port fees a weapon felt that come from Tehran no European they do rhetorically side with Washington when it comes to wanting to thwart you run the military modernization expressing concerns about Iran you missile and and military proliferation in the region and possibly possibly winking at the idea of not wanting to have you gone David thanks in defense contractors who by the way are part of the terror act right at the north part of the nuclear program run amok in the world arms bazaars with no checks against them but to date there yet put their money where their mouth is at least of course can be set for Russia and China which are looking to cash in on that though mercantilist perspective and strategically broken political peace country love to make money by selling old arm and strategic because arming tech runs only cause more headaches for Washington at least and not commit Washington to give it to this larger great power competition between taking on the likes of the military of Russia and China here's the part of the case that I like because it's it's intuitive but at the same time is confounding there are voices many not just Russian China that support the idea of lifting the sanctions and permitting Tehran to buy or acquire or inherit conventional weapons systems such as ground airs missiles because it will stabilize support strengthened reassure the Tehran regime is that how it goes here and Benham if it goes that way who says this out loud well this is important docking point that we hear from a lot of academics actually prominent people Cali people people who look at this issue on both sides of the Atlantic and and they are directly trying to find ways to make tech Ron more secure so that doesn't rush to do what it's done for forty one years which is to provide safe harbor training weapons equipment for terrorist proxies and on the other hand looks to exploit capabilities to develop and build trust your proliferate WMD fasciculation you clearly what they're trying to say that if everyone has an arms embargo that lasted perhaps if they have a strong conventional military they may not want to go in the direction of suicide bombers or need in my view nothing could be farther from the truth that first of all divorces ideology from the entire equation second of all divorces how you want the military doctrine has been formed for the past forty one years and third of all of course the plays if it fails to take into account the excuse you made a motion which is Greek you know you run your leaders have proven that agency matter and they have been proven again to be able to pocket concessions in the west it on him by the Latin economically to willingly restrain itself it's going to pocket the confession keep it asymmetric military capabilities and later on more advanced conventional capabilities and the talking point most unfortunately is echoed by people who are pro Iran deal approaching LA at because they're looking to find ways to get the US do exactly what it's trying to duplicate that press at the high your national level the U. N. security council to renew or extend the arms embargo or to collapse the whole infrastructure that had to deal with his U. N. security council resolution twenty two thirty one Iran is conducting civil wars surrogate civil wars in at least two places one is Syria another is Yemen those two is that statement is that fact challenged by those who want to permit Iran to have access to conventional weapons I honestly just looking at a surveying the couple of pieces that have a more prominent individuals left but for this thesis I have articulated the answer is no and and their writings also indicate that they are cognizant of what Iran is doing it in places like Iraq which is just next door and there's a long history of the running intervention they aren't trying to co opt the state trying to control the state to Malaysia's weapons proliferation didn't hire classic literature that these people had to be a part of the issue of course is the every person's practice and willing to kind of make excuses for a running bad behavior when you're running strategists refused to even take those things into account you're out of Russia and China both sit on the National Security Council with veto roaster they plan to use their vetoes if it comes to a vote in the security council you know the way the the US administration particularly secretary Pompeii L. especialistas en of bright okay talking about this is that they'll likely try to press for resolution or to amend the current resolution extend the resolution which could be subject to Russia Chinese retail and tech Ron had lobbied both these countries heart but it hadn't had lobbied them to heart you know the third country to repent needed the coronavirus crisis is Russia that's not without an accident apple will do I think in twenty nineteen if I'm not mistaken Russia China and Iran all the three way they did warming of ties between rogue state great powers the old one to contest the Merica is no accident that too this is bold strategy and ideology these cuts in state and we're going to be seeing more of that regardless of whether the US remains the Middle East trip quote unquote pivot to Asia but if the US actually if that looked at each other back to the security council I love the administration of talked about it using a legal prerogative to snap back sanctions and no one has made the case more brilliantly than the Obama folks who got a deal negotiated this deal because this was always a failed state in the face of significant outperformance all the previous UN security council resolution comes back if the fact of the international multilateral arms embargo that had no expiration date could come back and that is subject to a reverse engineer each other meaning you only need one country to escalate that crisis in such a way that they could actually call for the restoration of thanks currently what's going on Russia China and some other folks are balking at the fact that the US would do this because of course the U. S. left the deal but none the less the key three American diplomacy right now to get Europe to recognize that the American right and I don't have your call for that that back or had America make a separate case based around your bad behavior then then Talib Lewis senior fellow at the foundation for.

"John this is the John bash or so I'm speaking with Richard be fried his new book is tower of skulls the first of three volumes a history of the Asia Pacific War we come to the moments before Pearl Harbor the Japanese have a naval doctrine of two parts what is called intercepted operations kantai kessen is the Japanese the other is we come to understand is the key to a blue tie Richard needs to introduce to the these two concepts to understand the choice that the Japanese commander of the navy the navy commander Yamamoto who commands everything through his death in nineteen forty three Yamamoto makes a choice Richard the Japanese idea was to wait for the Americans to come and pick them off why did they change their mind it's it's a very good question and it also goes to exactly what Yamamoto's like I think the best reading in my view of young artists the point is that he recognizes right from the start when the political decision is made to go to war with the U. S. he recognized Japan has extremely limited prospect of being successful he does his best of professional officer to give them the best option that he thinks is available and he believes that the key is American morale and he wants to strike a blow and pro harbor is as much about striking a blow to American belief in morale as it is about striking at the Pacific Fleet and he decides to totally invert this plan the Japanese it had for decades about waiting in the western Pacific for the U. S. fleet to reach out with the carrier force and strike Pearl Harbor and that's probably important part of why the Japanese chief surprised because on both the U. S. side on the Japanese side the quote school solution or the the the way the washer go is the Japanese wait no western Pacific hello it is going to reach out across the central Pacific to do something the Japanese had never planned to do before you have a narrow believe that can tie Casson could win the document to wait for them but the capable tie could mean either at last they did it in the first six months and got an armistice so let's let's let's look at the Cato Bhutan first of all it's a magical terms that I associate with great success because they invented a whole new way of fighting a war what was the capable tie what was the air fleet the first air fleet well look aircraft carriers have become increasingly valuable elements in a naval war into the late nineteen thirties the problem was that although aircraft carriers had tremendous offensive power their ability to project those aircraft to go out hundreds of miles to strike all the navy's recognize however that carriers were very vulnerable compared to battleships to damage particularly from other attacks so was this this balance this trade off that everyone face as to the offensive power of carriers versus their defensive vulnerability and what do you halfpennies did in nineteen forty one was they took their main fleet carrier six of them and put them in one single tab it's worse in one single formation and by doing that they gain this tremendous striking power which was going to be deployed to Pearl Harbor and several other places but it almost exactly six months later the problem was putting all your eggs in one basket can end up with all your eggs being shot in that one basket which is what happens off midway the first air fleet is assembled following Richard's reporting April of forty one the Akagi Kaga the story with here you show kaku and your **** everyone of them will be destroyed in the next years but right now they're together and they sortie in late November they're taking the northern route to the Pacific they're following a plan the what part of which was identified by commander Ganda what did he look what did he recommend Gander was a brilliant staff officer I had to fellow who really did the nuts and bolts of the planning thank god there were recognized at the D. two supreme qualities that they were seeking in their plant were surprised and secrecy and this route across the north Pacific which was found covered in not a normal shipping line was designed to maintain secrecy and achieve surprise in the attack they're also learned that they could build torpedoes that didn't go too deep for the pearl harbor inlet and could strike the American battleships Richard has a note he has lots of these in this book where a identifies that the torpedoes struck the USS battleship fleet were created were built in a factory that's right below where the atomic bomb landed in Nagasaki in nineteen forty five it's one of those loops in history we come to the Japanese deception wasn't just taking the northern road is maintaining radio silence we didn't know where they were denied by others well the thing about the the the deception we recall part of the plan is the Japanese it was on to two things the first of which was they conceal where the carriers were by seven across the northern Pacific but they also provide a plausible alternative to explain where they were when we couldn't detect him the first thing was they were planning this enormous strike to the south and we were picking up lots of signs of that it was quite plausible to secure his would be supporting that operation by strike the festering strike rate by force into China and the other thing they did which was really clever very clever was in those days radio communications were by individual operators keying a talk like a telegraph key and the term was of a fist every operator had a distinctive style if you were really experience radio operator you could literally pick up and distinguish between various radio obviously took most of the standard radio offers on the Japanese carriers and left them behind in Japan and had a tap away and deceptive a radio communications to make it seem like to carry just a large pan the Japanese had a retired navy officer kale yeah she call us the first time I met him he was on why who and he managed over the prior week's to the attack together a great deal of human intelligence thanks to a cooperating taxi driver and are cooperating restaurateur what did they gain from Mister Yoshikawa was information what was the most important single thing the issue cow was able to confirm to them was that the fleet was on an operating procedure where it normally was back in pearl harbor on Sunday on the weekends said come in Saturday and stay over Sunday and then leave again on Monday and that pattern was not because the animals in charge were a stupid by any means the problem was that they had to restraints the first of which was we don't have enough oil tankers to keep our ships at sea all the time and secondly there was congressionally authorize funding for dredging keep to harbor clear that meant that that did not take place the weekend so that was a time you had to flee down so that's why I was most important in the Chicago told them was that they were going to have the fleet up available in port on Sunday and he gave a lot of additional detail about installations all over Oahu not just the fleet installations but also the Army Air Force bases November twenty fourth star the navy commander says that it is doubtful he's doubtful about the Japanese anything still attacked the Philippines and Guam November twenty seventh secretary of war Stimson says Rick uses the phrase prior to hostile Japan action and then in order and December second camel commanding the Pacific Fleet at Waterloo right said he we have blank information about the Japanese carrier all this is hindsight of course people are feeling in the dark as Richard makes clear but we come now well one detail that I picked up thanks to Richard's reporting between December fourth and December six we did note that the commanders of the second and third fleet gone silent now very strange conduct by the Japanese but in any event here they come and when we come back the attack itself has successes and failures that are important for the war had I'm John bachelor I'm speaking to Richard B. Frank is magnificent.

"John this is the John bash or so I'm speaking with Richard the fried his new book is tower of skulls the first of three volumes a history of the Asia Pacific War we come to the moments before Pearl Harbor the Japanese have a naval doctrine of two parts one is called intercepted operations kantai kessen is the Japanese the other is we come to understand is the key to a blue tie Richard needs to introduce to the these two concepts to understand the choice that the Japanese commander of the navy the navy commander Yamamoto who commands everything through his death in nineteen forty three Yamamoto makes choice which is the Japanese idea was to wait for the Americans to come and pick them off why did they change their mind this is a very good question and it also goes to exactly what young models like I think the best reading in my view of your modest the point is that he recognizes right from the start when the political decision is made to go to war with the U. S. he recognized Japan has extremely limited prospect of being successful he does his best of professional officer to give them the best option that he thinks is available and he believes that the key is American morale and he wants to strike a blow and as much about striking a blow to American belief in morale as it is about striking at the Pacific Fleet and he decides to totally invert this plan the Japanese and have for decades about waiting in the western Pacific for the U. S. fleet to reach out with the carrier force and strike Pearl Harbor and that's probably important part of why the Japanese chief surprised because on both the U. S. side on the Japanese side the quote school solution or the the the way the war should go is the Japanese wait western Pacific you know what is going to reach out across the central Pacific to do something the Japanese had never planned to do before you have another believe that can tie Casson could win the document to wait for them but the capable tie could mean either at last they did it in the first six months and got in August so let's let's let's look at the Cato boot time first of all it's a magical term that I associate with great success because they invented a whole new way of fighting a war what was the key to bow tie what was the air fleet the first African well aircraft carriers have become increasingly valuable elements in a naval war into the late nineteen thirties the problem was that although aircraft carriers had tremendous offensive power their ability to project those aircraft to go out hundreds of miles to strike all the navy's recognize however that carriers were very vulnerable compared to battleships to damage critically from other attacks so was this this balance this trade off that everyone face as to the offensive power of careers versus their defensive vulnerability and with the Japanese did in nineteen forty one was they took their main fleet carrier six of them and put them in one single task force in one single formation and by doing that they gain this tremendous striking power which was going to be deployed to Pearl Harbor and several other places but it almost exactly six months later the problem was putting all your eggs in one basket can end up with all your eggs being shot in that one basket which is what happens off midway the first air fleet is assembled following Richard's reporting April of forty one the Akagi Kaga the story with the here usual kaku and your **** everyone of them will be destroyed in the next year but right now they're together and they sortie in late November they're taking the northern route to the Pacific they're following a plan that I will part of which was identified by commander Gander what did he look what did he recommend get a was a brilliant staff officer who had to fellow who really did the nuts and bolts of the planning and Gander recognize that the D. two supreme qualities that they were seeking in their plant were surprised and secrecy and this route across the north Pacific which was found covered in not a normal shipping line was designed to maintain secrecy achieve surprise in the attack they're also learned that they could build torpedoes that didn't go too deep for the pearl harbor inlet and could strike the American battleships Richard has a note he has lots of these in this book where a identifies that the torpedoes struck the USS battleship fleet were created were built in a factory that's right below where the atomic bomb landed in Nagasaki in nineteen forty five is one of those loops in history we come to the Japanese deception wasn't just taking the northern road is maintaining radio silence we didn't know where they were didn't bother well the thing about the the deception we we call part of the plan is the Japanese it was on to two things the first of which was they concealed where the carriers were by seven across the northern Pacific but they also provide a plausible alternative to explain where they were when we couldn't detect him the first thing was they were planning this enormous strike to the south and we were picking up lots of signs of that it was quite plausible the securities will be supporting that operation strike the festering strike force into China and the other thing they did which was really clicked very clever was in those days radio communications were by individual operators keying a talk like a telegraph key and the term was of a fist every operator had a distinctive style if you were really experience radio operator you could literally pick up in distinguishing between various radio obviously took most of the standard radio operas on the Japanese carriers and left them behind in Japan and had a tap away and deceptive a radio communications to make it seem like you're still in Japan the Japanese had a retired navy officer Takeo Yoshikawa said first time I met him he was on one and he managed over the prior week's to the attack together a great deal of human intelligence thanks to a cooperating taxi driver and are cooperating restaurateur what did they gain from Mister Yoshikawa was information well he was the most important single thing the issue cal was able to confirm to them was that the fleet was on an operating procedure where it normally was back in pearl harbor on Sunday on the weekends said come in Saturday and stay over Sunday and leave again on Monday and that pattern was not because the animals in charge were a stupid by any means the problem was that they had to restraints the first of which was we don't have enough oil for tankers to keep our ships at sea all the time and secondly there was congressionally authorize funding for dredging keep to harbor clear that meant that that did not take place the weekend so that was a time you had to flee down so that's why I was most important in the Chicago told them was that they were gonna have a fleet of available in port on Sunday he gave a lot of additional detail about installations all over Oahu not just a fleet installations but also the Army Air Force bases November twenty fourth star the navy commander says that it is doubtful he's doubtful about the Japanese anything still attacked the Philippines and Guam November twenty seventh secretary of war Stimson says Rick uses the phrase prior to hostile Japan action and then in order and December second Kimmel commanding the Pacific Fleet at Waterloo right said he we have blank information about the Japanese carrier all this is hindsight of course people are feeling in the dark as Richard makes clear but we come now well one detail that I picked up thanks Richards reporting between December fourth and December six we did note that the commanders of the second and third fleet gone silent very strange conduct by the Japanese but in any event here they come and when we come back the attack itself has successes and failures that are important for the war had on John batch can the rich should be Frank is magnificent creation is.

"You're listening to the next chapter with Charlie and I'm here with Dr John Bash and and we're talking about which we haven't gotten to yet but the lessons learned from suffering rain but before we do that we need to continue to understand suffering at a at a at a greater degree and and one of the things things we ended up before the break was and I wanted to ask. Did you feel resentment toward God in this process. You Know Charlie. I hid A very active in conscious relationship with God since I was a teenager. Her and because of that When this happened Not One who actually was verbally speaking to me but it was literally Lee as if God said to me. You know. You're not gonNA blame me for this one and it really took a relief off the situation. It's like yeah I yeah no enough to know That God's not going to take the hit for it we live in a world that tragedies happen. It's it's just part of life and so I really was able to skip that stage in that softened the blow a bit I knew that I could Struggle and ask questions in my relationship with God. But I wasn't GonNa sit there and act like I was uniquely Singled out in in this case. That's that's not a normal response. But I didn't have a normal background I I already been walking with God for you. Know thirty some the years at that point Actually over forty years and you had already experienced several forms of Suffering and tragedy in your life before this. I had blamed God for so many things. It's like. Okay you've blamed me for enough laugh. Don't waste your time blaming me for this one that's That's a really interesting. Take on it and I think I I think can be helpful to people that God's involvement Kim this and what degree is God involved or involved or uninvolved does God allow does promote. You know what I mean. There's so many questions chins that that have to come to your mind. In in this situation it will be fun sometime just to delve into all the will of God Kind of issues I think for me I was in so much pain I was just looking for really had. How do I get through the day and how do I? How do I help my son? In whatever way I could and clearly trying to numb my own pain in the bottle didn't work So I was able to get to the place where it was very plain to me that That was no longer going to be an option for me. And and that a full acceptance. Not just of Johnny's accident but of other things that had gone on in my life that it really was a another chapter wasn't just that part of Johnny Story. We haven't told the life that he ended up having it wasn't just he was. It's GonNa be a miracle on the life post paralysis But there there was some things to be done in chains and In a soft use of the term miracle there were some miracles that happen in my life as well. Yeah what what. What about Johnny? How did he respond? And you know in general in in this situation was what was he was he angry he was he. I mean what. What were the kinds of emotions that he experienced and I can't imagine it he's a great contrast is is he he did it right? I did it wrong right. I'm the Dad I'd do it wrong. I'm the one with the theology degrees and the supposedly answers He's the kid it out there you know building houses and doing mortgages and get It took him a week in my opinion to figure it out I should define I guess a little bit. When I talk about quadriplegic I had no idea what a quadriplegic? What's a pair of police? Tricky don't understand categories of paralysis until you face it and basically what it was He was a cease sex Fracture fracture and what that means is that basically is no use of his body body below his brass And Movement of his arms just down do as Rhys And so here he was. I'm thinking thinking of so. He's basically going to be vegetable in a bad for the rest of his life and what for him as he discovered is like Oh so this is the body I've been given. I have these additional physical and financial challenges now in life. Let's get going and I IN IN I. I was watching and dry. I couldn't quite fathom I'd see making decisions It just blew me away. His friends showed up I call it like Harrier jets taking off from the ground. I've always been proud out of my friends and Johnny seen throughout my life my friends and how proud I was of them and he's kind of like that. I have some friends to I learned how to make friends. Check out mine. And they came in and they transformed our house In the things that need to be done to accommodate him his cars were sold. New Cars were bought and and And he had a very short period of time After five months in the hospital he got up and he got a wheelchair that was custom designed for the basically for paraplegic. Even though he's a quadriplegic and he runs around and he started three businesses. He's an amazing amazing designer Builder of homes and AIRBNB Just an amazing guy why it took me a year and a half of drink lincoln too much to figure out that it didn't just need to numb the pain. If I would accept what had happened the way Johnny did I might be able to get on with life and that's in fact what happened in the capacity to do that. I love it when people give me credit Oh US good dad get must must be because of you and I. I really agree with them. It doesn't resonate at all. I can't imagine what the connection is. Just I would say God gave him a grace He has become a model When he goes back to the hospital that he stayed at For so so many months with people who are newly paralyzed the nurses will bring out their new patients to see Johnny drive up. And I don't know if you caught that charlie but I said Johnny Johny drive up and they keep looking for who was driving the car and it's Johnny and it's a beautiful car and he flies in and out of that thing on a ramp and and and He's just an encouragement that there's life after paralysis and I think for a lot of us. We need that message. It may not be paralysis but I was people been hitting eh pretty good by something a paralysis of some sort of. Yeah I. I don't know anybody really you even mentioned in the Church you've of people who've been part of the church and how many of them aren't now why fiasco wide because of some kind of pain They had deep disappointments sir. People violated them in some way You there's tons of things that if we don't find ways to accept those things and come to grips with them there's an infinite number of things that can ruin our life and caused deep searing pain. Do you think in in line with our topic that you know I like your line I was I was just looking through Menendez line early on that that We have a life spent watching God turning pain tragedy into comfort inhaling then there is a a transference there there and there there is a learning what what types of things do we learn about ourselves through suffering. You know I think I guess because I just made a reference to that I think there uh-huh put it this way there was a man Who wrote to me? Because of facebook. He saw quickly that what had happened to Johnny. He's the guy who had been in my church which I didn't know him really well. I just remember I liked him and he just wrote me a note on facebook Ten years after I'd seen him and he said I think thank you WanNa call me kind of elusive message. So called them and and He's like John it's great to hear from you. He said there's a few things you don't know that happened since You knew me. He had a wife who's dying of cancer and he was helping her. He's on the way home from work on a motorcycle car. Cut Him off. He threw flew ten yards in the air and And he was he was in a coma for eight months. His family was standing around basically answering the question. Should we pull the plug in their arguing. He wouldn't like to live like this. I know Dave that he ended up communicating somehow with his wife. Who's dying of cancer? She sees since like wait a minute he he can hear He. Something's going on here. He is Colin may talk into may saying. I'm a quadriplegic John. I think I can help Ya. I talked to that man every day for the next year. He held by hands what I learned in the midst. That here's a man who's a quadriplegic. Who could guy couldn't talk almost anybody else Charlie because nobody could understand that kind of pain except somebody who had been through it and it was him and it was another our friend who had lost a child in that for me was I literally climbed on top of Janis bed early on and just looked at Johnny? Your Body Sucks Wchs. But you're here. I have you and I realized somehow in the midst of this pain It out of our pain that we can help others. It's not that we have it all together and you're suggesting what I'm hearing you suggesting is the power of relationship I said is it. Is You do not deal with this. You do not manage it and you do not Accept it all alone and it is with with the help and care and love of other people that is the that is sort of a a primary factor in in our healing process. I did I catch you right in saying that. How much do we not WanNa hear that answer? I mean how much when we're going. It's when you're going through trouble and people say you had to go to a support group. Would he want to go flag. I I know more want to go to a support court group than fly to the moon. Your lunatic I'm hurting. I'd rather go meditate on the mountain top and say you know. Give me the answer of the monks you know somehow somehow give me the answer out of the sky. And I don't know about you Charlie but I. It's not the way I find God working. I mean God seems to work through other people who've been through the same kind of stuff in who can understand that and and that ended God who has gone through that himself. Oh it's cray why who in the world would tell the story aureus suffering savior. God's GonNa come if God's GonNa come think about it I mean if I'm God and I'm GonNa come to the world. It's going to be a superman movie man. Dan would make superman relatable end up seeing his struggles for movies. What's tonight right exactly? He's struggling in pain. That's what makes it real and now we have literally a savior who goes through suffering suffering in every way as we have who his whole life not just through the cross his whole life he was rejected. You know we talk about how US accepted by the masses by the masses is but by the influential people of the world. He was highly rejected fused rejected by his family by his hometown. Look at the temptations stories stories. They talk about Jesus in his temptations of the devil. Go back and read those things. Those are things it's like really you just do this. And you can have both fun you want those temptations were realized like hey I like this deal. I thought the devil was a good negotiator. I would've bought it in some of those right. Yeah I could do all lows things. I'll take that instead of cross. Look as we wrap up. I'm realizing you know We could go on. But but it's about time to wrap Napa but I did have An extended statement that I made to kind of wrap us up And that your life reads like a Shakespearean tragedy. You have a family Harry.

"There's going to be this amount of money on top of regular person. So anyway we had a golf event You know kind if a golf fundraiser. And I got somebody who had worked with me and doing big events and did a major event and I just kind of assumed from that I would speak to all these people friends of mine came from all over the country to be part of this and to be supportive and then the this man in who I asked to coordinate the event when it came to speaking he said you know really. We're GONNA ask Janis. Mom speak night you and I was quite taken back and I realized pretty quickly that I've asked this man to do it because I trusted him and he was good leader and he was given me hard. Words words The reason they weren't asking me to speak 'cause they weren't confident. I wouldn't have too much to drink. And that's pretty embarrassing for if somebody with my background and with what I knew I got to the place that I just had to numb the pain Of what was going on and I tried to do with alcohol and I look at that and I tell you that there's another side of suffering in will probably get to it Most people probably have no idea can't picture what Johnny's life was like. You don't think of that to you. I mean you you when you're in the midst instead of your suffering it is It's not necessarily egotistical. But you just can't get out of of yourself you know yourself is so is so involved in his situation that you can't get out of it It's like and this is the next step to it. You know I I know a couple of MOMS. That have lost their children at at thirty years years old that just simply one never recovered. Because she's died. Now you know this was you know a few dozen years ago and won in quite recently. Her son will never lie. Never Lever Life. This is she's got to wonderful daughter. She loves her daughters takes care of her daughters but her son is just overwhelming which she feels with his son. What what do you think is is going on? Why are we as parents taking it? That way. Is it BEC- and they've never seemed like they were in our entire tired life growing up. We had other parts of our life and yet when something tragic happens it seems. There's nothing else in our life life but that child it's interesting how we we talk about how we know things you know we talk about sometimes. About what's innate. What what really do we just have a neatly? It's not like we've learned or We've gotten at even from experience or perception around us. And and I think some of those things I believe that one of those things is actually an understanding of God I think beneath all the ways we can come to a conclusion. There's a God I think I think that's really put within us. Well it's put in us in the same way. I believe the parent child connection Jesus even makes reference to one point talking about you know which of you if your son asked for food for a piece of bread would give him a snake you know what a silly only a course we just say. That's the one would never do that. How we care as parents? It's just built into who we are since you brought. God got into the equation. Why he likes to get there by the way? What's that God just likes to get there? He keeps interrupting in. Our lives is an amazing Weiss.

"Is not a light one in fact it may be one of the most troubling subjects. I have discussed on the show and more than one hundred thirty episodes. Today is about the very deep deep human pain and suffering and however the potential learning that can result if one chooses to take that path although we may love learning about life and about our deepest inner selves the Path. There is most often unpleasant. David White right alludes to the power of suffering when he writes suffering is an inescapable and in in evitable as breathing and if suffering is in scape -able and inevitable. It might be asking us to see suffering as are constant and instructive companion companion suffering. Asked us not to look for an alternative path because there is no alternative path. Now none of this alludes the pain and despair of suffering. It is not something. We anticipate with Glee in fact it sucks yet suffering. Rain is inescapable We are asked not only to expect it and learn from it but actually to embrace ace it as an unwanted instructive companion now my very special guest today Dr. John Bash is most stew custom to suffering as well as deep learning. That comes from it as a successful minister and Church planter in John's resume. I read and this is really a great quote. John's Hartford leaders is a natural growth of a life spent watching God turn pain and tragedy tragedy into comfort and healing. What a brilliant statement? It's it's our path is one of a life spent watching God turn turn pain and tragedy into comforting in suffering comfort and suffering which was also the The life of of Christ was one of of suffering and pain and tragedy which turned into comforting healing salvation now. John's plant eighteen. John was a church planter that that spread churches from the East Coast to the West with one in Chicago and his. His Unlikely Story was always highlighted by what John Calls two sides he writes often. It is the secret secret Thal it is in the secret vulnerable pain and assessment behind our stories that we find the deeper truth. Grace is more than a concept. John Story is giving him a passion for those affected by abuse addictions tragedy Kinney and pain. So all of that wonderful introduction. Let's let's bring on John Benefit enormously from his life life and teachings John. Welcome to the show my friend. I really look forward to our time together. Charlie you know I always enjoy chatting and meandering with you. Never know where it's going to go. Yeah Yeah it was really funny as we were talking before the show. I always talk to my guests before the show you said. Where's this going? I can't say and and he said what do you mean. I can't say well first of all I refuse to say what that may be and second of all. I have no idea where it's going to go. The conversation conversation is going to take us where it's going. I I have my narrative Argh I have my questions but I allow the show to be very conversational and that we take it where the show allows and if I tried to tell you where the show is going to go it would It would it would sort of sort of destroy the impromptu. nece the the the excitement of what we're what we're trying to do Before we go down deep I wanNA talk about your history as a successful minister new church planter. You gotTa tell me what is a church planter. You know it's funny in the world of Evangelical Churches it's a common term and the the rest of the world people just like really picture you out they get in the fields GOT TO REMEMBER I. I actually haven't been a local church pastor for for almost twenty years now but when I was younger I was in a denomination either. Started a church or you're kind of stuck because there were more ministers than there were churches and So basically it was going into areas that either needed churches of one kind. Yeah I knew another Or churches the just didn't have or areas that didn't have churches and you started from scratch and I didn't really know how to do it. Had it happens spontaneously. I was teaching in their group of people that said we needed a church so that was my beginning and I did best when I didn't know what I was doing at once. I thought I knew what I was doing and took a few courses and church planning. It didn't work anymore boy How how true is that? That are educational. Assistant System often becomes Either a roadblock or a distraction but but but you talked about you know. I'm going to know a little bit more about the nuts. And unbolt you said you started teaching. Who'd you start teaching to where you on the street corner saying come and visit me and my home and and I or did you make relationship? He said what was what was the process Alabama Charlie. It was strange. I I moved to Chicago to go to from Masters to go to what I thought were the best ask professors in the country. I wasn't going to go by name. I was GONNA go by who had the best professors and ended up in Chicago and they had this group that met in the salvation. Relation Army Not Salvation Army sponsored. But they rented this place. It was just single people in Chicago who were Christians and I went there and Just it was fun. I was single and I was a Christian and they asked me they figured out. This guy's getting seminary degree. Let him teaching each. And I taught one of the seven classes and it grew and I ended up becoming a leader in that organization and a lot of those people couldn't find a church in Chicago. That really really fit them so that that was the beginning. That's interesting and you you know. We're really talking in this language. We're really talking church planting like you said earlier. You alluded to earlier is Protestant and evangelicalism because there is no church planting of an Episcopal Church. You're going to go out. And I mean the the denomination will find the church for you so this is really sort of evangelical or protestantism at is is it not in general That's true the mainline denominations as a whole or or shrinking very rapidly rapidly and so there's often more churches than there are people see churches closing and in a place like downtown Chicago. Some of these beautiful churches were turning into beautiful condos and I hated to see that happen so In this case I happened to be part of a Presbyterian denomination that was very conservative. And so they didn't have any churches like that and I was going around. It was easy for us to read Church buildings because existing Congregations Kamajors Stone Cathedral. Places would have eight people on a Sunday morning and This particular church we ended up buying Or that a Polish Polish Orthodox cathedral where the people had kind of moved into the suburbs and It was just amazing. I was formal churches. You can possibly absolutely imagine now is like when I went to Gosh. This was twenty five years ago. I went to London and I went to an Anglican Church in London and then was a magnificent church church but like you said there there might have been eight or ten people and and and with the episcopal liturgy. They read their bulletins ends during the homily or the sermon. Because that was not really part of the liturgy you know they were there for the body and blood of Christ for communion. They were not there. Listen to some Guy Talk Doc right and it was it was it was really humorous when the preacher got up to preach they opened up their bulletins and started reading. It's as if this is not it but but things have things have have have certainly changed and and and do you think church. Planting is a is a discipline now in the United States I know internationally. It's it's huge but in the United States. Do you think church planting is still a strong a strong Option you you know I I do think the whole church world is fascinating in terms of what it actually is right now. There is a crisis whether it's mainline churches or or a conservative Evangelical Churches There's a crisis going on because of what you know as the nuns Anno any S ask. The major fastest growing portion of the population in a spiritual sense are those who don't identify with any church and I don't think we know what that's GonNa mean for the culture because we're in a generation now where many many children I don't know where you want to divide define the the line but A whole generation of children who did not grow up in the church so that they don't ask the question any longer. Where do I go to church At all and and the church doesn't know what to do with that yet How did they reach people who really aren't even asking the question? Should they go to church that Ken decided nats not relevant for my life. You you know and it's not only them that I found John. It is The people that have attended conservative church no longer combined to to the doctrine doctrine is still a three thousand year old doctrine that rejects many social groups now. And I'm finding finding you know if I may use a term millennials. We're talking about millennials that that just simply don't go to church they you don't want to go to church and it's Paul is brought up to meet several times. The millennials also don't declare political party. They they don't they don't say independent any the longer they just say undeclared because they simply don't like what's going on in the country and and something is something is is bound to happen. I Ha- I'm like you. I have no idea what is going to happen. Something is bound to happen. I think generally generational early Charlie as you and I are. We're all men. We never thought we were going to be old. I remember years ago when Paul McCartney turned sixty three. You know that that was such a big deal because when he wrote a song about turning sixty four sixty four year right but when he wrote that you know it was I like the way it was like. That's an infinite old person. I'm Never GonNa get it and you watch these guys. I went and saw the rolling stone a handful of years ago. And and I'm looking at a seventy year old man bounce around the stage like he's a kid but they're they're these generational changes that we were really really having difficulty in a way. We haven't before because our basic assumptions basic assumptions of are really really important thing. It's not about music style and clothing but about what a man and a woman is. I mean. That's a pretty big deal. We're talking about the very beginning. Definition of mankind. As the Bible describes describes it and God created man man and male and female created. And now all of a sudden you say that and you're politically controversial You know if anybody had said to me a few years ago that saying that God created man as male and female would be controversial. I say come on. Can't go that far and yet it is. It's a huge issue in our culture today and that's really impossible for people. You know ten twenty years older than me. They just really really they knock their heads and say this makes no sense. Well look at one of the largest but certainly most prominent two nominations. The methodists are splitting over gay marriage. I mean they just decided the Conservatives decided and and the nonconsecutive decided we cannot come to resolve on this and so the Church and I've been reading keeping up with the newspaper. The the church is doing a split by April. Is it or something like that. It's that that is just one illustration you can take any denomination. I'll he say methodist others take presbyterians materials for example the average person thinks that presbyterians or just one group in fact there's no at least twelve significant Presbyterian denominations and you could define each of them by their attitude toward sexuality and a Christian leadership relative to maleness and female on US and marriage correlative to maleness and female and largely. Just keep splitting because one wants to say well. We want women in leadership but we don't think women should marry each other and you you could just divide all those denominations just by those issues isn't that isn't that funny that gender issues and I I I I. I'm very familiar with gender issues but this was the first time I have thought of marriage issues as being as being what is the role of the male and female in in Mary..

"John bash on continuing to travel the Silk Road through time and place with Christopher back with the author of empires of the Silk Road this city and this is first millennium BC E. they saw trade as as a way of reinforcing their culture they were also excellent warriors in the western step you say that trade was a way of defining themselves as opposed to just being good bankers is that right professor it's a funny way of putting it yes I think they they they were really primarily interested in trade all the centuries in peoples and there's probably one really good reason for it they had to pay for this very expensive comitatus and we have descriptions of how expensive it was an actual amounts of money that were paid and so on the just and fast sums of money so in order to do that huge you couldn't get that from body from a raid on somebody or even just a major battle it's just isn't nothin nothing wondered what he needs to do you had to give in gold and and as soon and gold woven silk worlds and with whom he crossed the rituals and things like that we have descriptions of them and some of them found excavations so the the the question was how are you going to do that well the only way you can get money like that is through commerce tens of the sentry rations were very skilled at commerce and trade and taxation so they had to have their empires of firmly in place in nice and peaceful everybody trading very well thank you and the taxes pouring in and that was what they did in the westerns and in the western step and they were very successful in this period of time this is they take the founding myth and they organized this trade system which the professor emphasizes is never just international trader that is trans national trader they've been having this nation status never against across empires it's also local it's also it's also involves itself with a constituent elements so that at all times it's no matter could get this agricultural it's urban that's the trade exchange going on at this period however in the fifth and set a fourth fifth and sixth century BCE there is a phenomena you flag professor it's all of a sudden we have an outbreak of all these famous philosophers Socrates Confucius louts too and yet there was no evidence of connection between these philosophers correct yes there's no evidence of directly directed knowledge of by any of those philosophers of any of the other philosophers but there is some in some day that we have about connections with between the Chinese and Central Asia and between the Greeks and central Asian India and that suggests something but yeah we don't actually have the we have a small but we don't have the smoking gun you wonder line the fact that all of a sudden they're asking about questions of questions of governance altogether Confucius Dougherty's they're all challenging the assumptions of how states are governed and this sick this suggests there must be an or text here we don't have Christopher I don't know about IT or text but it does suggest that yeah the people at that particular time were were in contact and developed similar interests and the people who are connecting the more the sentry Eurasians so that that's what we need to look for and the Greeks and say that the first philosophers wars they call the barbarians have means the non Greeks and the list of people of of Persia and the Austrians and Judaism and other religious what we would call religions as well as fills philosophers so that maybe this is what they had in mind but there is some reason to think that the there were some country raising philosophers we know there were those on the hearts of the city and I mention and Buddha is called the city and philosophers fifteen stage in Sanskrit so nobody really assess the I don't know but that's what they're called the book is empires of the Silk Road and now we're going to cover a vast period of history we're going almost skip over Rome because Rome rises and falls and consolidates the western region of the part that connects to the Silk Road I'm interested in what happens as Rome disintegrates in the two parts of the empire the eastern and western part because of the rise of the people called Huns northeast of the eighties off what we think they originated from professor we don't know but their first attested in that exactly that area and and historical geographical counts in northeast of the city of us off and they invade Persia which was at the empire that balance off with Rome and they invade Rome they go back and forth harassing both at the edges of the empire ruga the leader unites them in the fifth century he dies and four thirty four and one of his sons Attila rises up until has a vision of conquest how why does he ride against both Rome and Persia well he does public such sure that he's the one who wrote against Persia I don't think but but the hunt certainly did it is time to do that but the thing was he was most of the time you he was actually at peace with the Roman Empire he he thought as a mercenary and the hundred most of them were out for one another sedentary power in that region so it but they they were they would get cheated by the Romans as much as the Romans this had plenty of money to spend on this paying mercenaries to fight their enemies they often leads to cheat them so the Heinz cut and the light and then with the with tact the Romans and say pass our you know what you promised and so on and and they would normally defeat the Roman so this is most of what it is the part where he invades the west is another story the western Roman Empire and yeah I'm not sure that we really understand it very well but there we have an eyewitness account of Byzantine east German empire emissary who went to visit until just at that time and just before he left to go to the west so and the the heat they they they don't blame the hunts for anything in fact the Roman account always are blaming the Romans for having gotten the you know them into a war with a hundred by cheating on more killing some Honda and justly or something so they were people just like everybody else Christopher Christopher back with is the author empires of the Silk Road when we come back we move on to the Turks and the rise of the vast Turkish tribes I'm John bass so this is the John Batchelor show.
