"We are talking of course about code is nineteen we are talking with you about what's going on in your life we have a caller and I want to address this concern and John Bristow are you still with me he walked out okay because I may need some help from John or maybe chase and you know what you could help me with this as well his concern was why are there still flights coming into San Francisco I think I I don't know if he designated the airport where there's the flights that are coming in from he said Asia but I think he was specifically referring to China and my understanding is that there are still flights that are coming in from Asia into San Francisco and other airports as well there have been cancellations of some of flights but not all flight San Francisco as I understand it is one of the airports in the United States that authorized to do code nineteen testing and so I don't know the answer to this one of you may know the answer to that these flights are coming in are they then if they're coming from an area if it was coming from Europe it was kind of like Italy where they have had you know such a horrible outbreak or South Korea or you know if it's coming from an area where we know there has been a lot of coronavirus present do they upon arrival in the United States to all of the passengers get swabbed toward or check for fever somehow checked to see if they may have covered nineteen do any of you know the answer to that because this is one of the concerns people have and I'm going to I'm going to connect that to a story today that came out about Hong Kong that in Hong Kong they were receiving all sorts of kudos from being able to keep corona virus under control in Hong Kong it seems like just a week ago that Hong Kong was a model for how to contain coded nineteen there are a relatively small number of cases despite months of being on the front lines of the outbreak and because they took a lot of tough actions and now they're all of a sudden seeing a surge and what a lot of people are saying it's because they have loosened up on the restrictions that they had including on people coming back into Hong Kong many of those people are residents of Hong Kong who had left they were out of the country and they're coming back in and they are finding that some of them are carrying the virus with them into an area where they had it under control so this idea of people traveling from other countries and coming into the United states particularly those who are not U. S. citizens and you know what we're doing to protect ourselves from more people coming in who are infected this is a real issue of course we don't have it under control in this country so this may be you know closing the barn door after the horse has gone John do you have any understanding of what's happening in the airports right now with international flights when they arrive here if there's any sort of screening that's done of people before they're just you know allowed to wander into the country and I wish I had the information I will scour the wires and what have you to try to get that information for you okay and I don't know if they're not I mean it may be because it's already here and so maybe it doesn't do us any good but if the rest of us are you know trying to practice the social distancing and trying to stay in our homes bringing more of the virus into our streets and into common areas which airports are this may not be something that we want to see and I don't know I I really don't know what the answer to that is I haven't traveled internationally for a lot of years so yes so John if you could let us know if you find anything out of that that that would be terrific Lou all right thank you and let's go back to our phone calls eighty eighty eight ten is our telephone number eight oh eight eight ten we're asking you about your own experiences also about any needs that you may have okay I got a couple of people who have air airline information perhaps let's go to Derren Derren calling from Gil Roy Darren hi welcome to KGO Hey welcome back but you don't either much terror so yeah I had a patient yesterday and their daughter just came back from China on Friday and the SFO late night and no screen what so ever even the TSA agency no no masks no screening so how can I be here it's very hard to hear and it's concerning to hear that the she a U. S. citizen the the yes you think so English so it's great that she's able to get back into the country we want that to happen but certainly it seems like if she's coming from an area where there's been an outbreak that we want to make sure that there's some sort of screening done and what about those people who you know who are working at the airport they need to have some sort of protection I mean thank god we're we're use masks and gloves when they can certainly people who are are dealing with people come back from infected areas certainly day sure you know be be protected in some capacity what do you think should be done Darren how did you go away okay all right let's go to Matt Matt's calling from napa Matt hi welcome to KGO hi Pat when you're gone and and you got a phone call from somebody that said she had relatives from both Italy and tryna they came through and sat so no screening questions I mean I don't know if you caught that or not but I just wanna make sure I'm not on the radar sh yeah I did not and I wonder I wonder why I mean I can't imagine why they wouldn't face some sort of screening when they come back it doesn't make any sense to me yeah it does it it seems like trump has mentioned that there's regulations in place to deal with all this I'm not quite sure if anybody knows exactly what they're supposed to be doing her but yeah but then I learned no yesterday the day before yesterday that Hawaii has instituted some pretty tough measures that if you're coming into Hawaii and whether you live in Hawaii or whether you're a visitor they're going to put you into quarantine for fourteen days and I get that it's a small state it's an island state a number of little islands and so they really have to be very very careful about how fast that can move through their population so I you know at least as a state they're trying to do something this this is of concern I I think that we need to have a little bit more control over that yeah I don't know what the upside is supposed to be of people traveling at this point really not much unless it's for health for national security or something or if you have to get home you know if you're if you're if you're gone somewhere and you really need to get home that's one thing but if you're traveling out recreationally if you're traveling as a tourist it's time to call that sucker off and you may lose some money I'm sorry about that but you need to call that sucker off eighty eighty eight tennis the telephone number eight oh eight oh eight ten let's go to Mike Mike's calling from Cloverdale Hey Mike welcome to KGO yeah you do it is Mike and all religions my dog's name dog but anyway all my dog he did live up yeah I would love to have their junior but anyway ought any anybody that comes in oughta be quarantined for two weeks Rozay got a temperature or not and who's allowed that trump I I don't know I don't you know he's of course he's at the top of the heap he's the guy who would ultimately be responsible if he wanted to ensure that people were quarantined I think that he would have the capability of doing that I don't think that's something that he wants to do right now and I'm not sure what the rationale is for that you know that can I tell you something else and I'm not I was going to bring this up and I might as well do it right now there's a a school of thought right now that what we need to do as a country is that everybody should be self quarantining unless you're somebody absolutely positively has to be out there and then take all the protective measures imaginal they everybody should be self quarantining for fourteen days and if after fourteen days you don't show any symptoms whatsoever did you should go back to work and if you do show symptoms that you take care of yourself the way you would if you had the flu unless it's serious and you have to go to the hospital and then your care would be different but as soon as you are free of symptoms you should remain quarantined by yourself you know but as a self quarantine for fourteen days and then people should get back into their lives what they're saying is that we are causing a great deal of depression around the country and causing a great deal of economic hardship by the way we're doing this where everything is indefinite you're supposed to self quarantine but we won't tell you how long you need to self quarantine nah I see advantages and disadvantages of both of these things do you think that one of the things we need to do is to have a plan where if you don't have any symptoms for a period of fourteen days you should be able to go back to work you should be able to go back to your normal routine in your normal life at this point at least then people would have some idea of what to look forward to yeah but if they're doing that day don't know who's got it out there and they could pick it up you know that's if you are a hundred percent correct I think one of the biggest downfalls here is that we have not tested everybody it's one of the things that South Korea has done probably better than any other country on earth that we know of is that they started as soon as they knew about this they started testing everybody they started testing everybody people who were symptomatic people who were not symptomatic and they have the best control over how much the virus has hit back nation how Sirius it has been that demographics are of the people who are the most impacted and what the mortality rates are there's a whole lot we could learn from up to from South Korea thank you so much it was great to talk with you eighty eighty eight tennis the telephone number let's go to Anders Anders calling from Menlo Park K. enter welcome the KGO hi I'm so glad to hear from you thank you five the thing is I am an artist so I'm pretty comfortable with myself in terms of being away from people but he you know comfort food and taking walks with nature and your animals are such a blessing to see yes I I agree with you and I think that really needs to be and I love these nations Stanford University so I walk along a creek side there and it's has Yang nice mulch wood chips so it's easy I'm I think because I have sort of problems and the problems but I try to get out and and this to me this shelter locked down whatever is nothing really new to me it's just and I've seen so much compassion and empathy now that markets we had our farmers market in Menlo Park and it was wonderful yeah I am I I think that there are a couple of things that people can do that are wonderful including getting themselves outside you know when they say that you need to shelter in place they actually do say go outside get some air get some sunshine as long as you maintain social distancing do that for yourself and it's great for your psyche and it's also great for your body so I agree with you on that I'll tell you there are some silver linings to this as horrible as this is as horrible as it may become there are some things that are good and one of those things that.

"Filling in for mark today it's John Bristow on KGO eight Sam I'm John that Sir this is the John Batchelor show I welcome Terry Anderson he is the John and Jane Jen all senior fellow at the Hoover Institution writing most recently at the hill about a matter that dates back to the early part of the American Republic the fair mindedness or abuse of the native American population granted large tracts of lands in the trees of the nineteenth century and then not given trust by the federal government to administer those lands where they live in this particular instance is eighteen thousand eight hundred acres it's the confederated Salish and Kootenai tribes C. S. K. T. and their ambition is to administer this lab which is part of the national bison range the objection is Terry I don't know how to say this in an adult fashion the objection is that they're not they're not responsible enough to administer the land they live on good evening to you Terry good evening John you you have it in fact the words still in the law that governs the Indian land management is the eight they need to be deemed quote competent and capable by the federal government before they can be trusted to manage these lands and those those words to start nothing but the issue has attended nothing but racist words it's a it's incredible to imagine a country where we would treat a minority group the poorest amongst our minorities as if they are incompetent and incapable and therefore are wards of the state this is a transfer that would take place while the bureau of Indian affairs was still in a supervisory role so this is an absolute it's not like they were going to sell it to the Chinese what is the national bison range what does it look like where is it Terry the national bison range is eighteen thousand acres just to the south of Glacier National Park so north western Montana spectacular piece of rolling hills the backdrop set against the mission mountains and this is one small piece of land that was purchased by teddy Roosevelt he paid in today's terms forty five dollars an acre up with this land giving the tribal tribe of a good deal and then it became the national bison range where the federal government could save bison from extinction and now the proposal is to turn this piece of land back to the Salish Kootenai confederated tribes and let them management manages and the notion that they are not competent and capable of managing buffalo seems a little thinkable given that buffalo were large part of their culture this is a recommendation by Steve Daines the Republican senator from Montana and the objections from the public employees for environmental responsibility which I learned from you for the first time the acronym is Pierre especially a counselor senior counsel Paula devastating complains that the bison management quote would be difficult to do if it weren't part of the refuge system now she also admits as you quoting your help please that the Rangers been badly neglected so exactly what is pierced saving the bison from if they're not now being helped what you have here is an opportunity for the people who live there as you've taught me for many years there at Terry when you were at the property environmental resource center the people who live there manage the land and the wildlife the best because it's in their economic interests absolutely you said they're saving the bison from but I would have said they're saving the bison for the public employees to manage and that's really what this is about they do not want to see the fish and Wildlife Service US fish and Wildlife Service which is the agency that now oversees the the buffalo range they do not want to see them out of there because it would mean the native Americans would be in the management position and hence the fewer jobs for public employees I want to emphasize that the the people who are going to take this on have a record you know of managing land timberlands do a profit so they would they would apply the same skill set but I was just today looking on their website at their a tribal council and and one of the people on there has a degree in resource management then and and as part of their timber management team and you know they are they are making money on their timber management well the federal lands nearby lose money their timber is is better timber they have better water they have better wildlife that that reservation itself is a spectacular piece of land managed well by the tribes and there is no reason that the national bison range which is a but literally adjacent to the reservation wouldn't be well managed by the tribe and my guess is they would figure out a way to do it for a profit Terry right that the trump administration is transferring land in some instances you know the downsizing of bears ears national monument is there a policy the triumph the trump administration's applying that is succeeding or is it being rejected what is the overall for how to give the native Americans opportunity to administer their own territory almost no progress whatever first off this this whole bison national bison range transfer there's been attacked as say a Republican effort to privatize the the federal lands as you noted earlier this isn't going to be privatized it'll belong to the tribes and they are under the trusteeship of the federal government anyway but the trump administration has it initially played paid lip service to giving tribes more autonomy I don't think they've made any progress and in the case of bears ears the concern is that that there are tribal antiquities in the area that will be ruined by oil and gas development in my position is if it's struggling to quit he's at stake them give the tribal antiquities back to the people for whom they are antiquities and let them manage them what's striking me about this particular instance eighteen thousand eight hundred acres which you know is a very small piece of land given the scale of Montana and the mountains what strikes me is this is entirely consistent the actions of peer entirely consistent with what's going on for two hundred fifty years the the undermining of the native American population to administer where it lives with the prejudice of the federal government presuming that it knows best it's as if Terry we've been transported a hundred and fifty years ago and then the assumption back in Washington was that the Indian as a child we must take care of and penned a pen up and watch it come back to the words competent and capable to use those words to describe any individual in the United States as as words that can only be determined by the federal government is just nonsense and when you think about applying it to an entire minority population of of the native Americans it it is just the unconscionable I would again just say it's racist and this is is this a Republican democratic matter or is this because the Republicans are an authority in the Senate it the initiative is Steve Daines this well to be fair the the other senator from Montana Jon tester supported the bill that this was in so our our per our senators are both on board Democrat and Republican but neither party has been particularly willing to face up to the racist nature of the policies we have towards in their native Americans thank god you know you think of people Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren they ought to be screaming about the fact that we call these people and K. incompetent and incapable Terry Anderson is the John and John a gene then all senior fellow at the Hoover Institution writing most recently at the hill I'm John Baxter this is the job that social major league baseball fan spring training and postpones the season opener into April having.

"To defeat the most dangerous president in the history of this country John Rothman Thurston John Bristow here let's point out that forty Sanders in the very very early stages here in California four hundred and fifteen delegates of the golden state offers the lion share of delegates tonight and at this moment although it's very early Bernie Sanders is doing well you have numbers on California there John the world will will find the because it's it's it's certainly not enough to make an impact what we're gonna keep you fully posted on all of us all and all I have here I have number so let me tell you this comes in California it twenty eight point seven for Sanders and twenty five point two for Biden so it's still relatively close but that's only thirty four percent of precincts reporting so we're gonna have to gain in California no no hold on I'm sorry again yeah this is actually five percent so far percent good okay Goodfellas Greg Sanders a twenty eight just under twenty eight percent and Biden Bloomberg actually in second place at just under twenty percent Biden with seventeen point four okay because we're getting different sources of course it's it's it's early but at this point R. I have this interesting I just got another update Sanders a twenty five point six Bloomberg at twenty one point one and Biden at seventeen point four they just made a correction now it's Sanders twenty five point six Wimber twenty point nine Biden seventeen point four Warren eleven point four and mayor Pete eleven point two what's the point out that three and a half million people here in California I voted early so that in a way just so we can reinforce this note when you vote early on a change takes place are you you you're out of your vote doesn't count so those I'm still confused about the early balloting because when we talk about three percent of precincts reporting are we talking about the precincts that are reporting the votes that were but that that that happened at those polling places are we talking about your absentee ballot don't know and I just checked the sectors of state's office yeah California and it's not posted yet as to what can I tell you another discrepancy I found and that has to do with the total electoral vote this is from The New York Times and they don't have electoral votes I'm going to vote I'm sorry delegate photoelectron votes I'm back I'm in the general election they don't have these and it's nowhere close to what we've been talking about according to The New York Times right now Biden has a hundred nineteen ninety five and this is by the way the total this includes Nevada it includes I it includes a in a New Hampshire does include totals tonight at the end includes totals tonight and they're giving by nine hundred ninety five in Sanders under an eighty four Warren fifteen and Bloomberg seven now the difference I don't know that would make a difference it doesn't make a difference who's calling it for whom but that's what they're saying right now so this is a discrepancy between some of the websites we've been checking and and and the new York times this is what the new York times is reporting right now and let me point out is low though yeah I think it's very low we will be here tonight until midnight and as we give you these updates you'll see variations and changes it's not a question of being right or.

"Is the mark Thompson show filling in for mark today it's John Bristow KGO John can twenty five hundred three thousand years war and profit and rest and idea our cultural cultural clashes of ideas and now we move to a state that I learned from the professor I've been misled about Carthage all my life I received an American education in Carthage was presented to me as an invader as a threat to the power of Rome a cargo deland asked was the way we were taught we must destroy it solved the wells well it turns out I've been living with Roman propaganda is that has lasted two thousand years professor let's begin with what it is Carthage did that wrong was so upset about Carthage becomes independent five fifty B. C. a B. C. H. it's our it's a descendant of Colin colony of of finish of the Phoenicians of tyre why is Carthage so immediately successful what did they know and how they do it the Carthaginian model is an expansion of the old solution model they control the trade routes they control the key ports through which were great resources of the ancient world of flowing they control for example the precious metals that make up Brohm's if you don't trade the Chalcedonians you went get cooperative you won't get the timber you need you'll find it difficult to get enough grain to feed your people so the Caledonians control trade and that is that power and it's that mmhm the political model the council junior high mercenaries for a nominee but they put their own people into the navy so the navy is the elite service the navy and trade together former synergy and they built a city almost say and they build the greatest building in the ancient world that says we are C. power to massive circular hall but with over two hundred stations for galleys to be anchored up and all of their stores preserve its is it's a representation of what C. power means it means you have a bill socket checked that supports the ideas the culture of the economic model and the human resources that define the nature of the state and all the Gracie prostates do this they put up architecture that says look at us we are the C. power state this is what some call yes we can sync across is is an ancient Venice but let's fill in the blanks because some radical ideas here are limited wars we've talked about that and compromise in conflict you know you can lose a war but compromise and find a way through it however you you report that they had a Senate with checks and balances sounds very familiar to parliament and the U. S. Congress they also gave women property rights and I am the merchant class seems to have been dominant when it comes to making decisions did that mean they have a weekend the governor Jenin's it since you don't have a king a tool they have elected leaders which will sound very familiar yes a particular news cited that led to the net we still have a nominal monarchy but you you have a polished out a very long time ago so the company's Indians have a system where you can become the head of state from pretty much any background and some of these men were indeed merchants so the merchant Klaus has a very powerful say in the way the state is run and only in an emergency do they have the powers to a military leadership we see several examples of that but the council Jeanine's all about money and women have property rights because many of the merchants officer traveling and while they're traveling can be from long periods of time somebody will need to look after the business and the council Jenin's unlike the Romans think that the best person to do this is your wife the Carthaginians have a weakness the Syrian grains are Danny and timber and foreign troops house on if you look at coverage on the map is this little more than a tip all Manhattan it's a tiny little city perched on a triangular piece of land behind massive walls he doesn't own the terra tree outside its own gates so it has the whole of Africa to trade with but it owns nothing it literally owns nothing beyond a tiny little city so it imports everything a food timber the lord people will see prostate Hoover of people looking for skilled men who work for them so it depends on resources and it depends on Sicily and Sardinia for gray in September and this is the flash point of the wars with Rome the Romans want those territories they want the resources for most territories for their own use and that is what the walls and floor right the first the second and the third Punic war but I want to identify what it is that the Romans first find attractive because their agreements you say that they're signing trade agreements from the sixth century BC on and then all of a sudden they find it unattractive what's the switch the Romans it's us dealing with the Carthaginians then they move into southern Italy and they stop taking over the formally Greek city states of the south which have strong maritime populations and strong maritime connections of their item and they take those on board indeed the leaders of those southern cities become part of the Roman system and they see that the chalcogen endoscopic competition so we let's use our Roman military might to muscle the Carthaginians out of the trade we will dominate the trade and the heart of the Carthaginians fights the more extreme the Romans become in their approach to dealing with us so it's about the money old welcome yes when it's not about the money it's about the money there let's about the warships the Carthaginians use the force your cheer said were light and the Romans used the fives the Romans depended on on infantry on the ships is that how they fought yeah so we we have two different styles of fighting this is classic when you see these military navies of fighting against Bartram powers the Roman five was copied from the Syracusans who were very powerful city state on Sicilian they developed it specifically to fight the Carthaginians the company unions had formal skills the fetters so they could you like fall specials to great advantage the only way the Romans could counter it was to have a very big fleet of very big heavy ships with a lot of troops on board and they would set up baffles where they could negate the Carthaginian maneuvering skill and forced to kill the demons to fight a Roman baffle which comes with an integrated results cannibalistic everybody's mind of Carthage and the elephants in the Alps however you report that Hannibal was not looking to to destroy Iran what was his aim of invading Italy I will but I'll serve as in Barcelona and indeed because Hannah uses a military base in Spain which is because it is overseas empire to create a large army to March and we're going to run through the Alps where he recruits most of his infantry so his marches is not a crazy way of getting to actually it's the only way he's going to raise his troops he's us see buildings all me as he announces his job is to to make Rome just another ordinary state in the great power system of the ancient world so Rome call sage Macedonia Egypt said this year they'll be five maybe even six great powers and they would mutually restrain each other within a multi polar world order hello he was raised by his father to dislike the Romans intensely understands that the Romans will become a universal monarchy they will take over the whole of the ancient world they will crucify everybody stands in that policy and they will dominate the world will become a Roman slave market and he's prepared to build alliances in particular the Macedonians to try and stop Rome reaching that point so he's not trying to destroy it because it's far too strong he's trying to put it back into a normal to physicians notice the the universal Maliki but as one of many powers so he's trying to create a stable balanced world in which by no coincidence coffees can continue trading and doing what coverage does the house after one fifty five BC the Romans decide that Carthage must be destroyed this is Kato the sensor cargo would I'm to ask you you you identify this is an existential rage what is wrong thinking why must a Carthage be wiped out to the point that even they don't even take come there aren't they destroy that to at the end of the Hannibal war the second Punic war the Romans be the chalcogen into really badly they made them pay huge war indemnity they stop them having ships they stopped doing anything and they they continue to leverage and bully them for the next thirty four years the confidence paid off the debt and the time would come when the Romans would have to let the Carthaginians return to being a normal state and they were petrified how would the Carthaginians made less money they would dynamically successful commercially they were doing all the things that was done they were running ships controlling trade making profit the agricultural holdings in North Africa with growing exponentially and there's a famous scene in the Senate where a bunch of grapes is pulled out the story is these come fresh from college so Custer is undermining Roman markets and they paid off their debts that building a great hall to put their ships in and all the Romans can see is that this becomes a genuine to come back and have the vengeance so they decided the best thing to do is to just wipe these people out and make sure that they can never rise again by removing the very memory also from the books of history books of history include Herodotus and Thucydides which the Romans read correct they they saw the authority of a sea power and they hope to reduce Carthage from memory is that why I I I I was educated with pop Roman propaganda as an American you were brought up in a Republic which is was seen Rome as one of its great models still does yes all of our buildings in Washington yes what what Washington is is is a very large concrete version of Rome and that tells you a great deal because everything will flow from that once you set that as a multi and even if it's not when you pay a great deal of detailed attention to it still sets the agenda so yes you do expect to find that you'll because the Romans are sending you a model.

"Show filling in for mark today it's John Bristow on KGO eight that I'm John not sure this is the John that's our show teller rock away is the wars on the drive and we start in Cambodia with the mystery of an air field it looks quite elaborate looks like it was built in the last three weeks but I'm sure that's not true in Cambodia the suggestion is that it is a Chinese air base of some secret concoction this would be a hardy boys set up tie of the hardy boys could be on vacation with their parents and they stumbled through the jungle on this massive air field where there are warming up some super spaceship what are we looking at in Cambodia yes all this came out of it out of an Australian news outlet reported that this under construction airfield was in Cambodia near the terrorists of course seashore resort which is a high end large resort area golf courses all those things that you'd find in a top resort five star resort this bigger building was being built and that the report said it pretty much concluded that this was a Chinese a military airfield being built that is being built for them and it's part of China's expansion to other you know areas and there's definitely strategic case to be made to Cambodia with its location would kind of be that western flank of the South China Sea make it could give trying to some access into the you know to be a big golf mother areas but other poor one everywhere this report was national security people retweeted it to this big on Twitter and social media is all over the place and so I I got the satellite images because they never showed any proof of all these things that they were claiming and I just don't see any evidence at all that this is a airbase yet alone eighty one that's built for China top you occupy and so what what I did is I just went down the claims and not gonna put them off one by one and some other information come out since then I haven't updated the posts but this was a plan for that resort all want to get an airfield that can be able to accommodate a private aircraft or a charter seven fifty seven to bring in gas or whatever so is it possible that the Chinese the one they use it absolutely that's not saying it isn't but there's no I don't see any actual smoking gun that says that that's actually the case is he the dimensions of the field does that suggest a kind of aircraft they could use it I know that have a bombers for example need a long take a drive time together to get their wheels up does Israel match what they need yeah I mean it does it it's ten thousand it's a ten thousand foot runway and that's a large front way that's kind of the large size of run what you see at international airports it's such a but the issue with that is this is a very hot place and when you get hot temperatures you need the to the density altitude goes up and you need much more room to take off and and you want to be able to bring in groups that are on you know seven sixty seven and private jets that that use you know decent amount of space so I'd just because the runway the certain Lange's doesn't mean that it's for military operations or use especially it next to a very high in resort where they're already trying to get clients lots of clients to come in from around the world to use those facilities at a at a hefty price so once again in China has invested in into that area and in into Cambodia that is a known thing but in this investment like that is a soft power tool for China it's not necessarily saying Hey we're gonna put bombers on a on a base next year resort and the ramp facilities where their crop park I see zero indication that's military related at all Nellis Air Force base tie has a wonderful feature where you can imagine yourself as an Air Force pilot because they're going to the red flag exercise that tell you did a piece so what we talked a few weeks passed that the Chinese have built a copy of the Nellis air base I believe and that this is the real things so I'm sure are our comrades in the people's Republic of China are studying your piece right now to say well Hey we need one of those a we need one of those don't you know try try to emulate more and more Chinese emulating the tactics and procedures western their western counterparts they're dropping some of their old kind of Soviet type of mentality tactics in the air to try to become more competitive against err err forces that are trained in a western manner order that is accepting new use what we call L. if he's a large force employment drills where there's really a mock air war that integrates all different assets not just fighters such as bombers but space and ground systems and everything else that goes into finding a modern conflict it so that that's kind of why we see you know them building and developing their own Nellis Air Force base or or at their capabilities to try to come and get up to speed on that part and while injecting their own unique Chinese you know the twist on on all these tactics and procedures and the red flag is going on at the real knowledge right now it looks pretty cool I see a I see aircraft parked along one side of it I don't see anything else so the red flag exercise in isn't doesn't look especially busy or am I missing something tie we have about thirty seconds yeah it's not as big as some of the red flags that you but three year but the smaller ones are usually the most sensitive because they're bringing in just the tightest alot allies to work together Australian the U. K. and so that way they can do things that maybe don't want expose our other allies to over the range when they're actually out there fighting there's a cool patch.

"Thompson show telling him for mark today it's John Bristow line Jane seo a Sam I'm job that Sir I'm in Baku Azerbaijan I'm here to report on the federal elections taking place in these next days as Azerbaijan a prosperous country goes through the transformation to a transparent democracy making at the hub and the inspiration of the south Caucasus in Central Asia at the same time to the east of may is the people's Republic of China that is tragically bound up now with the non transparent Chinese Communist Party my colleague Gordon Chang is here thanks to our partners Scala dot com a global technology firm I reporting from here and also the embassy of Azerbaijan the U. S. and I present this puzzle to cordon and also to our guest author Walter the immersive Pennsylvania man who is much schooled in Chinese civilization gentleman I have anecdotes not confirm just on the front pages of China morning post but strong anecdotes from very good sources two of them that the Chinese be LA that is the people's Liberation Army love to the party is establishing vast caps quarantine caps made up of army tents vast in backwards areas are dated ares with open drainage ditches between the tense these are for the migrant workers who went home for the holiday and have plans to go back to their homes in the cities where they've been working in the Chinese manufacturing these camps are to be established people need to stay there for two weeks if they don't get sick they're released if they do the re concentrated they're going to identify the people and put them into groups but you can see the opportunity for trouble is vast and the Chinese Communist Party can do this because they are non transparent and because the Chinese people ark how'd or in some fashion used to trading there a BT ads for GDP that just disappeared Arthur I cannot confirm it but I've seen the videos I am surprised at how badly the Chinese Communist Party continues to behave are you surprised actually I am surprised I wouldn't say badly that I've I've always thought their wicked but they're behaving in a transparently incompetent way now so it's quite clear with they're doing for instance you're talking about the PL a campus life also build some new hospitals and I've been bragging about how they build them in ten days currently these are pre fabricated isn't buildings from Turkestan of which have been moved down and this explains why they have bars on the windows and all sorts of things that you wouldn't expect in purpose built hospitals we've also had some other news which confirms they've got big problems there is a on Saturday night there was a of an internet presentation they have a little counter that counts the number of sick and so forth and it's kind of failed to act properly three times and each time you've gotten a glimpse long enough for people to take a web of of take a photograph and the number is that it shows are just incomparably bigger for instance it showed on Saturday a hundred and fifty four thousand infected people which is ten times the official facts to figure eighty thousand suspected cases which is four times the official figure listen to this one twenty five thousand that on a day when the official listing of three hundred so if there is clearly a huge cover up going on here or at least that's what I'm saying and I think that if you start concentrating these people it's going to make things worse it's also going to make it quite obvious this is a disaster of a sort that I I can think of unless you go back to the terrible dynasties to terrible plagues of the tongue dynasty you know in the sort of seven hundred Gardner this is Gordon it is simply the truck people understand right now that there is a big discrepancy between what they can see and what the government is reporting and my sense is that the sensually any trust that did exist before the corona virus outbreak between the people and the Congress party is is now gone and after this disease goes away and when the recriminations really began to dominate the national conversation it just seems to me that is can be extremely difficult for the party to get past this one largely because people understand just the party completely fumbled its response to something it should have been able to deal with I I think that's exactly right I think recrimination is the word we have many examples of how people who tried to give early warning in fact as long ago as five years there were warnings the what I'm gonna say in just a second might have trouble who we might ask the question why is it all wheel hot wives of people flying in from all this that and the other because the official narrative is these germs are coming from wild animals that interact with people and there's a kind of form of evolution is going on and that that one day a new form of of corona virus appeared in a actually feel free market and move on and somehow jumped into a person and that was the case what we have about a minute or so it does still free markets that why should be you hire the answer is through high is the only city which is got a level for biological enviro logical laboratory where they keep stocks of all of these things so it's sort of like say well I think the reason I saw that lever on the street was that came out of the zoo and that's why I thought this town I didn't see it many of the towns that don't have food and analyses of the new virus show there are apparently have been insertions of DNA and so forth which are not naturally occurring wrists are certainly have not been found in natural specimens and just for good luck if there is a chunk of sars virus which has also been inserted so it looks as if what we really have here is a French build biological experimentation station which is designed for the most virulent path we have thirty seconds author thirty seconds that experiment designed to create a virus led to the escape of a virus and that it's not at all surprising what happens then are there walls in the university of Pennsylvania I'm in Baku Azerbaijan I am here thanks to Scala dot com my global partners and the embassy of Azerbaijan in the U. S. Gordon Chang is my colleague and.

"Thompson show a million for mark today is John Bristow Jane seo waves and John this is the job at the drive watching the hardware and software that is conflict around the world most recently the tragic shoot down of the seven thirty seven as civilian airliner by not one but two Sam fifteen gauntlet they're called by NATO ground to air missiles now videos available of the horrible last moments of the people on board seven thirty seven there's a considerable gap between the first salvo of the Sam fifteen and the second you see the flashes in the sky and then the last you see this is a cam at the error at the airfield the last you see is a burning burning aircraft go off camera that tragedy has details that we need to explicate and Tyler rock away is here to help us understand the air defense system that responded so incorrectly to a civilian airliner Tyler a very good evening to you we've established the weapon the Sam fifteen it is launched from a mobile I'll launcher looks like an enormous siege gun but on top of that our troops for the Sam fifteen weapons it has its own radar system I'm presuming it's locked in to what area wide system so what have we learned so far about the I. R. G. sees aerospace division error and does the gap between the two missile firings is that of significance good evening to you Hey John great feedback with you yeah so really that's my sort of predictive article I wrote day before that they admitted that they actually shop this aircraft down they being Iran this is very accurate it was actually alarming the accurate you know people forget the timing of when this event occurred it if he can't put themselves into the shoes of these guys ever in this road mobile and save fifteen tore system and and that's understandable with the very unique job and it's a very unique place and a very good time but with that of a major counter strike captor Iran has launched their ballistic missiles on our sites in Iraq they would have been one of the first to die they are sitting in a road mobile Sam system that was radiating has right are on and it was on the what western approaches of to run so you can imagine that it's not just the target it's like having a flashlight on the dark room if you're a copper to move through their they would kill that particular target in doing so so the stress that was involved the fact they've been on alert for many days it's that try it's no excuse for what happened but these are all human factors that would I I predicted played into this it sounds like that they had the question that you posed as a really smart what was this particular system tied into an integrated air defense network which is very common these days we do not know exactly what modifications that rings have done to their core system but I can say this they were delivered well over a decade ago it will they weren't the most advanced at the time and that these are not high end systems he's a road mobile systems are supposed to go with the infantry and we used to be used for point defense not defense so you have guys in there that are you know now the top training here you know class in the air defenders for Iran and they're sitting there in an area probably never were not familiar with deployed is emergency state with a system that was most likely not integrated into and large area integrated air defense system because the aircraft as they just started civilian aircraft I I put down the fact that they didn't mean to kill human beings civilian human being right so I want to go to the other side that you've illustrated here the first people to die in a U. S. dry is air defense right that's what they break out first and they take it out with missiles long range missiles correct the target that radar right so it's a mix it in the Iranians mind it's not yet they don't know or are exact order of battle on an opening strike yeah we will you stand opticians stealthy cruise missiles really to get fixed sights fixed targets large air defense systems that are placed in an early warning radars and those types of things but for road mobile systems once the missiles comment at their manned assets even stealth once like F. thirty five or P. to those aircraft will also destroy any threatening a mentor center in their way and if this thing was turned on like it was they have a very high chance of dying and not even knowing when they're about to die potentially see the munition on their own radar but at that point in time it's too late and you're about to be destroyed so the first thing we do in an air strike is we blind the follow blind them completely take everything down right and that can happen can adequately and also through advanced platonic warfare which is something a lot of people just don't really understand but that's not just jamming it's just not jamming from long distance that can have very precise electronic attacks that can through with enemy air defense systems and very unique ways and also cyber attacks as well so that is in the Iranian you know air defense operators mind they're thinking of all this as the sun is about to come up so they have like an hour left of vulnerability so from U. S. is gonna strike back now it's compressed in this hour left of time and I can tell you that there would probably be no higher level of anxiety or hair trigger than that that that moment we go to an article you posted seven days ago from a satellite imagery I have two fifty fifty twos on the U. S. air base in Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean what is the significance Tyler right so when the school up for up to to a potential conflict with Iran after we struck sold mainly as Iraq that whole process we saw a ton of assets being poured into the region from paratroopers to actual you know more fighter jets and things that we would see any sort of lead up to a potential conflict but the B. fifty twos which are the ability have ability carry large amounts of those cruise missiles those I jazz stealthy Jasim cruise missiles which would be used to knock down the enemy their defenses just as we discussed in the very opening moments of of a conflict they were to send to send to their normal bases in the Middle East malady that sector they were sent way out into the Indian Ocean at Diego Garcia and at the time that this was no one that this is gonna be a process it was very clear to us the reason behind that why you put them out over you know twenty five hundred three thousand miles away from Iran is that is that is particularly right beyond the distance of Iranian Iran's ballistic missile capabilities so they could not barrage that base and try to either shut it down or actually destroy the bombers on the tarmac like they could in the ones in the in the Persian Gulf so that was a fall back that no matter what there be assets with very capable cruise missiles that could penetrate even the most dense air defense systems that are outside the reach of Iranians ballistic missile systems and that ended up being a very good choice because what it Iran go after they went after U. S. targets I and Iraq with ballistic missiles if that were to have you know elevated it continue to evolve into a larger conflict Iran would have launched on all our bases in the Persian Gulf you also mentioned pre positioned ships what kind of what were they thinking of when they prepared for this right so what people are aware this is pretty cool we we actually keep it no a large amount of very large cargo ships as a pre positioning force that are full with a munitions and weaponry that sit in that bay and Diego Garcia ready to be called on to move out during the conflict it's one of two squadrons of the world of those ships this U. S. they will support ships that are able that are upset for deployed to do that so that's what those are they're they're always there but in this case say Iran were to have attacked all our bases or many of our bases in the Persian Gulf those ships would very likely have been used to start moving even more fire power munitions and other sites to support ongoing conflict and how many of these fifty twos are are can be deployed to Diego Garcia do we know how many did we have there now right originally was to be six and we know that to arrive because we have a satellite imagery we're first post that but since then from what I know there's been no more and that makes sense because there has been some escalation and I mean sending bombers around the world to a base you know and and movie to people there's kind of a big bigger task but it sounds like so there are there was a couple there and they'll probably stay there for the immediate future maybe more will join them or maybe not we go to Afghanistan a battlefield and Tyler emphasizes a now at upgrade of the very famous hellfire missile that we will first met in the early days of the Afghanistan conflict tell you have a photograph attached to this article that shows the vehicle recognizable vehicle not blasted apart the way we saw the vehicle in Iraq with Mister a targeted killing on so the money but it looks like somebody took an axe to the root followed by looking at you're looking at a very secretive weapons system that was been developed the last four years for five years and we first thought deployed in two thousand seventeen at the time I just saw the pictures I had no idea existed I just said something new has had the battlefield because what that is is a actually HM one fourteen hellfire missile we see those on credit reapers predators patchy is very common type of missile but a very special configuration that instead of a warhead it has large sword like blades that falling out of its sights right before it hits its target and it has no munition inside at all no snow high explosives of any kind and it also has some slight type of very accurate targeting system work and hit the same place on the roof of a vehicle where the person you're targeting is sitting every time so is the lowest collateral munitions literally it is a blade Bob that slices whoever is unfortunate to be underneath it in in a vehicle absolute to pieces the people in the backseat can be relatively unharmed it is John it's it's honestly it's the most widely coyote act me you know brutal weapon I've seen for a very long time but it's very effective there using it that all the time so as to ply and we have evidence of its success any any battlefield indication of where it's been successful right so this thing was only in theory for the last since two thousand seventeen and we didn't see thought to thousand seventeen that led a lot of speculation and then we've seen it now just this year starting I believe in may of twenty nineteen excuse me so last year we started seeing it being used over and over in Syria this last piece we did was the first time it's ever been in Afghanistan that we know of we never seen it use there so this technology has moved you know to the other battlefields that the endless battle field that we have in Afghanistan and it's specifically for taking out very high level targets I believe this was a Taliban commander that they that they hit this.

"This is Walmart Thompson show filling in for mark today it's John Bristow on KGO eight John this is John basses help professor Malcolm Gaskell's book is between two worlds how the English become Americans it is now the winter of seventy six sixteen seventy six and the English are hard pressed Groton falls Sims berries abandon in Connecticut a woman named Mary Rawlinson is of ducted and will make a note because she later writes a bestseller seven years later the the the experience of being of ducted was that new to the London readers when they fascinated with the stories professor I see absolutely fascinated by the minute thing that's the reason sometimes to distrust them a little bit I mean I think they they people really did have these really very extraordinary experiences of being you know taken captive from their English I'd states in New England and and taken up into the mountains of force to survive in terrible conditions but the particular way in which those stories are retold for you know for the London market on the because these books printed in London and find their way over to to America to know there's a very particular appetite for tales which is not just to selecting them they'd need nearly always are just an exciting but the rules so you know the designs to harness needed to insights kind of righteous anger in the English and in the new English against what they see as a you know a particular treacherous and I'm grateful enemy who would not just be the two defeats that for but you know you think these terrible torches and privations upon them not all New England is Puritans but the Puritans ask where is god do they have an answer professor that's a that's a good question I think one of the things which is from eighteen ninety fourth right from the early days which the English of noticed is the the the Indians use sarcasm and say the only the the you know the English have preached this is that they've they've they've come with a mandate from gold in order to to colonize America the idea that then they find themselves totally at the mercy of the Indians is it seems to be in the reporting this is a favorite kind of joke because he couldn't remember the the the reason ons to this is this is this the classic Pearson ons to me which is persons what we see a more than anything else he's got silence so the fact the gold seems to seems to be tormenting then they understand is that this this is a stern father he still wants to discipline his children apple cares about them so in a sense that the treatments would be what is called woman's inflicting these tortures he defeated abandoned New England just didn't have it anymore it's a particular kind of puritan logic and not one we would necessarily shed but the the restrengthened getting from the fact that they are being tested so use it like gold even though undoubtedly this is an angry killed by may Boston's bearing three to four a day and Benjamin charge will and it's from his wounds in the great swamp fight and he rallies again to start the search for Matt to calm matter comes manner sick unclear why bot he does they do eventually capture medical his wife and son and they track him down over several days and finally shoot him there's a very famous diary entry Philippus except is this understood by them your sins to be victory or do they know the what do they think the war will continue I think those knows knows that this is a war which is going to continue because what happens at the end of king Philip's war is the it isn't no there there isn't a sort of a complete stiff is almost this moment this is a war which changes shape and it moves geographically so the sudden moves away from Boston say that if they use most of him rocking about electing Inbal snippets of the war is over but that actually that you know the the and this is suppose we could trace this right back to the early days of Virginia but as long as the English colonists wish to expand they will always be pushing against the traditional homeland terror trees of the native inhabitants and he's always going to create conflict and war so the war does actually single off today and the the the but the killing of medical needs so symbolically powerful the sink and again the the the the the courtesy to right there in history so this is the perfect moment where you can at least send a check to regional quite the book the warriors for the second generation the professor writes what the Great Migration was for the first but the war continues and we moved to the Chesapeake colonies because here there are Indians rising up the dogs in particular and there's fighting in Maryland there's fighting the Virginia colony but most importantly the governor in Virginia as an aged man governor Sir William Berkley he believes in diplomacy to handle the front tier and that is rejected by a man named bacon always taken why does he revolt I mean this part of the complexity of the stories in the final baking is actually one of the king's minister will be but he's not someone who is in a V. who is who is very culturally and politically different from him but you know he's a he's a he's a pompous he's is he said mine the gentleman the someone who takes it upon himself to represent the interests of planters who was feeling very deeply anxious about speaking about local native Americans and that their you know their livelihoods and their right to be that he's a sort of you know he's the kind of rabble rouser lives Ross relaxant long the someone who does he get the following behind him but never really has much time to the multitude because he's a since you gentlemen and as a fake hopefully he he sort of has a rule making more in common with his you know the man whose whose history is playing to this is all chapter three who is the the the English colonists there will be English imperial representative William Buckley even knows that you spent most of his life in between yes the rise up against Berkeley in June of sis is seventy six seventy seven now in June of seventy six bacon is arrested then he's pardon but in August he returns and he he he he puts James town under siege and then he destroys at why I know it's it's a good question isn't it he did that change Hallie's burned to the ground I mean this is this is part of the story that's the sole reason for Dawson the actually the the English you know is a mess because right back to the early founding of Jamestown is the one of the English is English colonists worst enemies of themselves they will always divided against themselves they they carry differences from England over to America is that the reason this which you sometimes get in in in in some retellings of this the political story but you know there is a certain homogeneity among English called me from the just different from those people in England typically their imperial masters but this very divided amongst themselves and so that you know that the the bacon balmy is I mean it's not a it's not a particularly popular all call me because what Gorman armies to go on the rampage and destroyed property really want Peterson and I think most columnists feel that the money has a flag just a minute.
