"Charging that the massive deal would allow the Washington tech giant to suppress its competitors in gaming. The lawsuit represents the FTC's most significant effort to reign in consolidation in the tech industry since prominent tank critic Lena Khan became the commissioner's chair and was expected to usher in an era of antitrust enforcement, characterized by a willingness to bring cases in court rather than pursue settlements with companies. The case signals a broader strategy at the agency to bring cases against deals that may pose competitive threats in the future, especially in nascent gaming markets. The lawsuit was issued at the same day that a trial began in San Jose in an FTC lawsuit against Facebook parent company meta over its acquisition of the virtual reality company within. The agency has argued that if companies could be kept separate, they would push each other to develop more features and attract more users benefiting competition in the future. The FTC lawsuit against Microsoft could foil the company's ambitions to become a heavier hitter in gaming frontiers. Activision is the owner of popular titles such as candy crush Call of Duty and its acquisition acquisition could bolster Microsoft and its competition with Japanese console makers Nintendo and Sony. The commission voted Thursday on a party line vote to issue the lawsuit in administrative court with the three Democrats in favor of the complaint and one Republican against it. Microsoft has not seen such serious regulatory threat to its business in more than two decades when the Justice Department bought brought a landmark antitrust lawsuit against the company that ensnared it in years of legal battles. After that case was settled in 2002, Microsoft had largely avoided the antitrust glare focused on tech rivals, including Facebook, Google, Apple, and Amazon, until the proposed acquisition Activision acquisition, the largest deal in Microsoft's history. They make a note here that the Amazon founder Jeff Bezos does own The Washington Post. Because everyone's acquired by everyone. Microsoft president Brad Smith signaled that the company would fight the lawsuit, saying in a statement that the company has quote been committed since day one to address in competition concerns. While we believed in giving peace a chance, we have complete confidence in our case and welcome the opportunity to present our case in court. Smith said. Since announcing its intention to buy Activision in January, Microsoft has announced policies and arraignment arrangements intended to show regulators that the deal would not give it an unfair advantage in the gaming market or harm workers. On Tuesday, as it was apparent the agency was nearing a decision on the deal Microsoft announced that it would bring the

Was Aaron Carter Denied Life Saving Medical Intervention?

"Something I wanted to go up with you today because the more I read about Aaron Carter's death, I'm not shocked by him dying. You know, let's see, as we said the other day, they found aerosol cans in the bedroom and the bathroom, which obviously says that he was huffing, which I said would be part of the death. I also said, one day when we get the reports back, you'll probably find maybe some cocaine, maybe some Xanax, the typical stuff, I don't think fentanyl was involved. I don't think crystal meth was involved. I think his body just got tired of being high. His body got tired of being sick, tired of being tired. You know, a lot of times I listened to people who gave up drugs and their 30s or so Hollywood people like Jimmy Kahn, and I mentioned the story. He was always having a good time for years living at the Playboy mansion. It's the first time I've heard somebody say this because when I listen to him do this interview, I was in the grips of my relationship with that drug. And I'm like, well, how's this end? What the fuck do I do? It's really hard. It's hard to stop doing it. So it becomes such a social part of your everyday life. What do you do? And Jimmy Khan very plainly said, I got tired of being tired, man. I got sick of being sick. And he just went and eventually I did the same thing. But it takes a while. Everybody operates on their own clock, one guy told me, you'll put what you're tired of it. You'll quit when you quit. No one's gonna force you to quit. It's just not the way it goes. And unfortunately, many people are right when they say that. That's why a lot of relationships break down. A lot of marriages break down, and a lot of people die because before they're ready to quit, they do too much and their body gives out. That's what I think happened to Aaron Carter. I don't think we're going to see a whole bunch of drugs in his system. I really don't. I think he'll have the typical ups and downs in there. And with the huffing, it's not good for your heart. And we'll see. But here's what I want to talk about. The fact is that Aaron Carter could have been saved, maybe. Had this house sitter who works there, this mysterious house sitter had allowed in these neighbors across the street who were medically trained. A medically trained couple. She even packed a defibrillator because she heard our police scanner possible dead body. There's a code for that. I think it's 9 27 D and they gave the address and she knew holy shit, that's Aaron's house. And they ran across the street and his house did a wouldn't let them in. 11 o'clock in the morning.

"Now layering into that performance pressure comes the 6 upstream factors, which were advanced by doctor Christina maslach, one of the pioneers of burnout as we understand today. And she actually has one of my favorite quotes about burnout. She says that workplaces can be very unhealthy environments. If you take a plant and put it in lousy soil and put it in the dark and don't give it enough water and sun. I don't care how gorgeous the plant was to begin with. It isn't going to thrive. And her research involves looking at 6 upstream factors which influence burnout downstream. And these are all things which fall within the purview of leaders. So as nonprofit leaders listening to this, we have to accept that we might be contributing. We are most likely contributing to the factors that are causing our frontline staff to burn out. This can include insufficient reward, lack of fair compensation or any compensation at all. This could be a toxic workplace community. This could be not enough, constructive criticism, so on and so forth. And I'm happy to provide all 6 of these to include in the show notes as well. Great. But yeah, in a nutshell, for me, it was being a first generation student. It was being born and raised in priority neighborhoods in lower socioeconomic circumstances. It was identifying as a racialized minority at a time when our understanding of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, wasn't as sophisticated as it is today. I mean, there's so many factors that made me feel like I had to prove myself. And so that compulsion to prove myself is a feature out of the box feature with me. Thank you for all of that. The super helpful. We are talking with Hamza Khan, who is an award winning marketer, an author, global keynote speaker, and really has both, I think, from his own experience as someone who has experienced burnout at its 12th stage. And then used it as a teachable moment for himself and for all of us. About what that looks like. What are the contributing factors and what are the keys? And when we come back, we'll talk a little bit about those keys.

"Nonprofit sector to make a difference. You come because you have fire in your belly about an issue, a cause, to help level the playing field right or wrong, bring beauty to the world. You know this list it goes on and on. That fire ignites you. Literally, it propels you to work as hard as you possibly can. And that fire is an essential ingredient to 5 star nonprofit leadership to successful fundraising, for lobbying and collected official, for making music that moves people to tears. What if the fire goes out? No fire. An absence of fire. Burnout is the absence of fire. That's what burnout means literally. I wanted to talk to someone who really understood what causes burnout and how you can address it. Someone who had experienced it. And someone whose recipe for not burning out does not include, have you seen that meditation app? Someone who talks about it more deeply. I found Hamza Khan and you're really going to appreciate what he has to say. You will think he's talking directly to you. Because he is, in some ways, and you will think long and hard about his keys to avoiding burnout. In our conversation we talk about good stress, and yes, there is such a thing. The distinction between an overachiever and a high performer will talk about death by work. And he asks you to consider if you would prefer to be a human doing or a human being. Not gonna lie. I need this conversation as much as I'm guessing you do.

Harry Cohn and Rita Hayworth's Tumultuous Relationship

"Harry Cohn at one point took all the credit for creating Rita Hayworth. He was obsessed with her. I don't blame him. She's my tippy top. She was Columbia's first sex goddess in the 40s. But she kept getting married. Her first husband was a 40 year old car salesman, then she married the director arson wells, then she married Ali Khan, who was the arid parent to a Muslim throne, then she married the singer dick James. Every time she got married, her box office started declining. It eroded to the point where it was shit. And her marriage to Khan, who was a huge Playboy huge womanizer, that kept her out of pictures for two years. And it really infuriated Harry Cohn and it really alienated her fans. So after Rita Hayworth returns to Hollywood in 51, Cohen wanted one of her pet projects, which was Joseph and his brethren, and until then, her husband dick haymes had come into Harry's office with a perfectly chiseled beard and demanded to be cast as Joseph. And instead, Harry Cohen decided to get back at Rita Hayworth because it was still madly in love with her and he was also pissed that he let Marilyn Monroe slip away, believe it or not, and I can believe this because I'm one of those people who's not super impressed by Malin's beauty. I'm just not like there's certain pictures I get it, and the voice I hear it. But when you take everything into account, she's not my favorite movie star or sex bomb, not at all. And I think she was like probably too big and too sloppy and fucked everybody just not my cup of tea. But Harry Cohn felt the same way he wasn't impressed by her beauty. He didn't renew her contract in 1940 to 6 month contract. And he said, you know what? I'll take the next pretty girl that walks in my office and wants to be a star. And he did just that. And that was Rita Hayworth.

"In his mind, just joy today to have bob board junior owned, he has been a leader in this industry, not only following up on what his father, Robert bork had done, judge bork had done. But in his own right working with this today, bob, welcome to the podcast today. It's such a pleasure to finally be on, I'm sorry about the delays, but here we are. Yay. We made it. Well, to get everybody started off, tell us about where what you're doing now, your organization, and then we're just going to dive head deep into this stuff. The semi short version is that for a long time, I was a reporter and then got sick of that and decided to get a grown-up job. And worked in corporate communications and strategy, but most recently, and really this is a labor of love for my father. I saw in 2016 or so that Elizabeth Warren and others were having sort of their left wing Appalachian meeting to discuss how to hijack antitrust and turn it into a weapon against business, not just big business, all business. And my first thought was, well, I wonder where my dad's book is. And he had written a book called the antitrust paradox in 1978, but it was out of print. And you couldn't find it unless you wanted to spend three or $400 on an old copy. So I decided we needed to get the book back into print. And I asked Mike Lee, senator Mike Lee to write a new introduction. And I wrote a new forward and took some time, but we got it out. It's on Amazon and Barnes and noble. It's very readable. Anyway, I need to start with that. And then I thought, this is getting ugly. Particularly when Joe Biden won The White House and Democrats had both houses of Congress and you saw lots of really insane legislation and the appointment of Lena Khan, who is just a Marxist, you know, put in charge of the FTC, decided we had to get in there and start fighting, so I created the antitrust education project and have been doing lots and lots of media and writing pieces in The Wall Street Journal and elsewhere to try to explain why the consumer welfare standard, which was my father's contribution to antitrust back in 1978 and has been basically the operating system for antitrust enforcement for the last 43 years, ought to be preserved against these lunatics

"We start with the unending political turmoil in Pakistan. The observation that Pakistani politics is a high risk endeavor is not an original one, but any scrutiny of the fates of its office holders since the country's foundation 75 years ago is nevertheless astonishing. The Wikipedia page entitled assassinated Pakistani politicians has 44 entries, and though it does include three members of the Bhutto family, it excludes prime minister zulfikar Ali Bhutto, presumably on the technicality that he, though after an altogether dubious judicial process, was executed. And this is to say nothing of those who have been arrested jailed exiled overthrown or undermined a cohort which might require not merely a separate Wikipedia page but a separate Wikipedia. Moving up the rankings of Pakistani prime ministerial mishap this week is Imran Khan, who has managed to get himself charged by police with breaching the country's anti terrorism act. As of this broadcast, he seems likely to appear in court later this week after which the spectrum of possibilities ranges from this turning out not to be much of a thing, at least until the next thing, to being a very big thing indeed. Elsewhere, Pakistan's media watchdog, the excitingly named Pakistan electronic media regulatory agency forbade forthwith the live broadcast of any of Imran Khan's speeches, which ruled pemra, prejudicial to the maintenance of Law & Order and likely to disturb public peace and tranquility, which is quite the thing to say about someone who was running the country 5 months ago. At which point they brisk recap. After many years, cultivating his almost populist outsider shtick, Imran can't became prime minister in 2018 when his Pakistan Tariq E insaf party or PTI won that year's general election. By this past April, he was a little over a year away from becoming the first ever Pakistani prime minister to complete a full 5 year term. No confidence against mister Imran Khan, the prime minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan has been passed by a majority, but almost as if observing tradition, Pakistan's parliament in which the PTI's majority had been whittled by defections, tabled and passed a vote of no confidence in Khan's government, removing him from office. Sub editors around the world rejoiced at the opportunity to conjure headlines making crashing reference to Khan's pre politics career as a fine international cricketer. Indeed, captain of Pakistan's national team. He'd been hit by a bouncer, bowled by a Googly caught out stumped or any number of other metaphors for having one's innings curtailed. But in cricket, you know when you're done, the rattle of your stomps as the ball scatters the bales, the deathly thud of a straightening delivery into your pads, the agonizing SNCC off the edge of your bat, followed by the wicket keeper's bellowed appeal. Indeed, a gentleman walks back to the pavilion bat cradled nobly under one armed stoic expression adorning the visage without waiting for the umpire to raise a finger. In politics, there is always the temptation to stand your ground. Refuse, if you will, to leave the crease. The job of a prime minister in difficult circumstances when he's been handed a gloss or mandate is to keep going. And that's what I'm going to do. Since being unloaded by parliament, Khan has succumbed to this temptation. He has lent heavily into a line of populist indeed downright trumpets to paranoia, fulminating at a deep state and or international plot to thwart the will of the people as naturally, personified by himself. They can try to steal the election from us. If you count the votes that came in late. And this is what dropped Khan into the soup in which he is presently thrashing. On Saturday, Khan gave a speech to supporters in Islamabad, in which he elaborated on his vexation at the recent arrest of his chief of staff, shahbaz gill. Gil was taken in accused of inciting rebellion in vain against state institutions and so forth. He has accused police of torturing him. Khan, in his Islamabad speech, accused cops and judges of being in on the general plot. Islamabad, Islamabad inspector general and deputy will not spare you will file suit against you. You all should be ashamed of what you have done. Let me tell you. In more established democracies, such as to pick a completely random example, no real reason, et cetera, the United States, when a given politician commences on about the deep state, the swamp, the blob, or whatever nefarious conspiracy they believe to be scheming against them, they can be safely dismissed as any or all of a huckster a bungalow a whiner, a crank, or a plain and simple idiot who has no idea how anything works. But in Pakistan, the possibility that Khan has a case does have to be acknowledged. He has accused Pakistan's powerful military of behind the scenes involvement in his removal, and it would hardly be the first time. If Khan's downfall actually was or is in any sense a coup d'etat, it would be depending on how you count these things may be Pakistan's tenth actual or attempted such intervention. As for what might happen next, the only sensible bet in Pakistani politics is against the straightforward and transparent outcome that everyone is broadly okay with.

But in cricket, you know when you're done, the rattle of your stomps as the ball scatters the bales, the deathly thud of a straightening delivery into your pads, the agonizing SNCC off the edge of your bat, followed by the wicket keeper's bellowed appeal.

Gil was taken in accused of inciting rebellion in vain against state institutions and so forth. He has accused police of torturing him. Khan, in his Islamabad speech, accused cops and judges of being in on the general plot. Islamabad Islamabad inspector general and deputy will not spare you will file suit against you. You all should be ashamed of what you have done. In more established democracies, such as to pick a completely random example, no real reason, et cetera, the United States, when a given politician commences on about the deep state, the swamp, the blob, or whatever nefarious conspiracy they believe to be scheming against them, they can be safely dismissed as any or all of a huckster a bungalow a whiner, a crank, or a plain and simple idiot who has no idea how anything works. But in Pakistan, the possibility that Khan has a case does have to be acknowledged. He has accused Pakistan's powerful military of behind the scenes involvement in his removal, and it would hardly be the first time. If Khan's downfall actually was or is in any sense, I could, it would be depending on how you count these things, maybe Pakistan's tenth actual or attempted such intervention.

"To Monaco dot com forward slash subscribe for more. We start with the unending political turmoil in Pakistan. The observation that Pakistani politics is a high risk endeavor is not an original one, but any scrutiny of the fates of its office holders since the country's foundation 75 years ago is nevertheless astonishing. The Wikipedia page entitled assassinated Pakistani politicians has 44 entries, and though it does include three members of the Bhutto family, it excludes prime minister zulfikar Ali Bhutto, presumably on the technicality that he, though after an altogether dubious judicial process, was executed. And this is to say nothing of those who have been arrested jailed exiled overthrown or undermined a cohort which might require not merely a separate Wikipedia page, but a separate Wikipedia. Moving up the rankings of Pakistani prime ministerial mishap this week is Imran Khan, who has managed to get himself charged by police with breaching the country's anti terrorism act. As of this broadcast, he seems likely to appear in court later this week, after which the spectrum of possibilities ranges from this turning out not to be much of a thing, at least until the next thing, to being a very big thing indeed. Elsewhere, Pakistan's media watchdog, the excitingly named Pakistan electronic media regulatory agency forbade forthwith the live broadcast of any of Imran Khan's speeches, which ruled pemra, prejudicial to the maintenance of Law & Order and likely to disturb public peace and tranquility, which is quite the thing to say about someone who was running the country 5 months ago. At which point the brisk recap. After many years, cultivating his almost populist outsider shtick, Imran can't became prime minister in 2018, when his Pakistani insaf party or PTI won that year's general election. By this past April, he was a little over a year away from becoming the first ever Pakistani prime minister to complete a full 5 year term.

Jonathan Cahn Continues His Discussion of 'The Return of the Gods'

"Khan. Listen, the conversation with you that we've been having about your new book, the return of the gods. I really wanted to just keep going because it is so rich. Let me ask you a question before we get into the more substantive stuff. But because I didn't ask it in the first hour, but where did you get the idea or how do you form the idea for a book like the return of the gods? Again, your thesis is that these ancient false gods, these ancient deities which are demonic powers have come to America with a vengeance, but at what point did you begin putting these pieces together? How does that work for you? Yeah. Well, I mean, a lot of times with the books, Eric, something comes, and then it leads to the next and the next and the next and the next. I can never reproduce that process. With this, actually, I look back the year after I wrote the harbinger, I actually shared it with Israel, the congregation I lead in Jersey. It was actually a message called the dark Trinity. And I now I never got as deep, but I didn't open it, but I knew I knew that I knew the what Jesus said when he gave that parable. I knew about the turning back when you turn back that wasn't just for a person. That applies to civilization. That parable, 'cause I want to be clear with the audience. I don't know where it is in the gospels, but when Jesus says that a demon is cast out and if the person who's had the demon cast out or whatever, it does not change. And in a sense, live rightly, then 7 more demons will come back or the demo will come back with 7 more demons, and it'll be far worse than it was. And you make the case, I think, very persuasively that that is what has happened to the United States of America. Yeah, yeah. I mean, look, we know this is happening. And we haven't had really so many examples in history. We had a process of christianization at the beginning of this age. And it has been a quote Christian civilization, certainly Christian based. But now we're witnessing something of great magnitude, where witnessing a massive turning away from America and the west.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn on the 3 Unholy Entities

"Let's welcome back, talking to Jonathan Khan, brand new book, the return of the gods. So you said there are three unholy entities. Three chief demons. One is bail, you refer to bail as the possessor, so what are the other gods? This is this kind of unholy trivia. And folks, this is biblical. This is not just some crazy idea that rabbi Jonathan Khan came up with. Yeah, the first part, yeah, the bail is kind of like the enter. You always see him first when he says bail and this, there's this. He's like that first spirit who brings the Friends. And so it's opening the door. So what you see in Israel is bail was the principality that drove God out of everything. What we see in America, starting with the 60s, blatantly, is this spirit that driving God out of everywhere out of the public square out of the school out of everything. It's continuous. Also, it says, as we mentioned, bail made Israel forget God. The idea with America is a nation that new gods so much, but is now progressively forgetting God. In Israel, he calls them and says to turn away from the commandments. We have literally struck down the tank of mammoths. And there's a whole realm of what we won't have time to go into it. But there's a process of paganism that's been happening. And even behind woke ism, like a quick example of this. It's so infiltrated us. In paganism, you have many gods. And with God, you have one. You have one God, one truth. But in paganism, you have many gods many truths. You have your own truth. In fact, you can create your own God. You create your own idol. You're creating your own truth. So now we have our own authentic truth. Everybody has their truth. If I say I'm a woman or I say I'm a tree, you have to accept that because it's my event, that's paganism.

"I warned you who we had in our one today. In our two, we have rabbi Jonathan Khan. He's scary in a different way. But my guest right now, Kevin McCullough, some of you know him and fear him as both is my guest right now. Kevin welcome. Hey, Eric, I'm not half as scary as that crazy person standing in front of independence hall last Thursday. Pounding the podium like this from him. That's in the middle of World War II. That's kind of the point. It's why I wanted to have you on here because you wrote a piece of town hall. People can read it. I hope they'll read it at town hall. Dot com. But what we saw the other day is really sickening, frightening, disturbing, confusing. In some ways funny because it's so insane, but I want to process this where we are. And so when I saw your piece, I thought I've got to get you on the program. So in a nutshell, what did you make of his preposterous sickening performance? And I'm not trying to tell you what I think of it by calling it the posture. I think those are anodyne neutral terms. Well, first, and this is you won't find this remarkable, but I do, in my own experience, as a consumer of the day to today governmental political intersection, trying to watch it, I have become rather amazed at how unencumbered I am with the actions of this president. He's become literally so insignificant that most people forget that he has a speech planned or this type of thing. I didn't even know until after the speech that there were 6 major networks that didn't even carry it. It was mostly just the NBC properties that did. But here's the thing. So I didn't see it until after it had passed. I watched it about ten 30 11 o'clock that same evening. And when I did Eric, I thought this is the lowest low point of presidential speech making in the modern era and maybe in the history of the nation. And we

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn on the Meaning Behind 'The Return of the Gods'

"As promised, our friend rabbi Jonathan Khan is back with us in the studio look he's right here. Welcome. Hey, always great to be here. All right, listen, you and you, it's like you go big. This book, you have a new book out. Just brand new brand new called the return of the gods. So the first question I have to ask you because it's a very provocative title. What is the meaning of this the return of the gods? This brand new book. Yeah, I have to say Eric, this is the most explosive book I've ever written. I think if you read it, you see that. I know because I read it. And I'm going to pretend that I don't remember anything in it. I'll talk less if I shut up. Yeah, this is the opening of a mystery that's behind everything art, the transformation, what is transforming our culture, our children, touching the Supreme Court. Everything going back to the Bible and going back to the ancient tablets of Mesopotamia. And the ultimate, the first thing you asked is we hear about the gods. Could there be something actually real to the gods. The gods are fiction, but mythology, but could there be something? Okay, now to be clear when you're talking about the gods. The gods of ancient Egypt, the gods of ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, if we're talking about Zeus and Aphrodite, we're talking about marduk. We're talking about all of these gods. So you and I, as believers in the Bible, we would say those gods are fiction. And yet, not really. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, there's another realm to it. And the thing is, what if there's something real about them and what if they are at work now entities or principalities, the Bible speaks about it? What if they're at work, they have returned because we've opened the door.

The governor of the Massachusetts bay colony, how he would have this kind of retreat on governor's island, which is in Massachusetts, which is in Boston bay. He would face Boston and pray for Boston. Okay, now the punchline. In doing so, he's praying for the whole civilization that became America. That's right. That's right. And so but he also the one for those who didn't hear who warned America do not turn for God if you follow God, you're going to be the most blessed nation people. If you turn away, then judgments come. So what happened to John winthrop? What happened to the island of winthrop John with him? The island of John winthrop was subsumed in the 20th century became an airport. The airport is Logan airport, the very place where the planes took off on 9 11 and headed to New York City on the island of the man who warned America. It all started there. This is getting really eerie now. No, it is amazing. These things are absolutely amazing. And it's amazing to me that God has chosen you to reveal these things because you're not making them up.

"Like much of the world. Has been coping with rising food and fuel prices. Stemming largely from Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Its inflation rate is also soaring to almost 14% last month. That comes atop an economy already reeling from decades of mismanagement. But unlike the rest of the world, price hikes hit shortly after the ousting of a populist prime minister, sparking street protests. Imran Khan was removed in a controversial vote of no confidence on April 10th. But he remains wildly popular. But in the last few months, Pakistan has seen a lot of political turmoil. Ben farmer covers Pakistan and Afghanistan for The Economist. In the early April, Imran Khan, the prime minister, the former cricketer, was kicked out of power after he lost and no confidence votes in the parliament. But it is opponents thought that he was going to leave quietly that certainly hasn't happened. He's refused to leave the field. And in recent weeks or he has held huge rallies around the country. One of the biggest of these rallies was a march, in fact, and there was just a couple of weeks ago when he led his supporters on the capital Islamabad and said that he was going to stage a sit in until new elections are held. What are these protests and rallies about? Imran Khan feels that he was wrongly kicked out of power. He says that he was the victim of an American conspiracy that chose to kick him out of power because he had refused to power to American wishes on foreign policy. So Imran Khan feels he's been hard done by the people who he's organized in the rallies though, are they upset about Khan's treatment or are they upset about something else? People are protesting against the price hikes for almost everything. Fuel is going up, producers going up, cooking oil is going up, and it's really hurting a huge proportion of Pakistan. And these problems may be working in Khan's favor. May be able to tap into this anger or price rises and this blame that is being placed on the government. And so it sounds as though that's quite a potent combination of anger over inflation and over how Imran Khan has been treated. He says he wants to hold sit ins until new elections are held. Do you think these protests will actually trigger new elections? I think it is potentially a potent mix and it is potentially a problem for the new governments. When Imran Khan's march arrived on May 25th, he said he was going to stay until new elections were called. But in fact, he called his supporters off. Now the party insiders at the time claimed that army generals had given assurances elections would take place. Elections were currently shedding all for late 2023 when the current parliament ends. Now to bring them forward that they'd have to be agreed by the new prime minister shahbaz Sharif. But it's very hard to see why he would do that. And why is that? Bringing the elections forward at the say so of Imran Khan would look like a capitulation. His government's less than two months old and he's taken tentative steps towards repairing relations with the west, but mister Kant's protests have kept him distracted. And that means he hasn't been able to devise a strategy to tackle the economic crisis. And tell me a bit about that crisis. Pakistan's finances are really in a wretched shape. The economy is reeling from decades of mismanagement and outsize military spending. And now it's been hit by the pandemic and war and Ukraine. That's meant that last month inflation hits close to 14%, largely driven by the price of food and transport. At the same time, the rupee has lost 8% of its value. And foreign reserves of dwindled to 10 billion, which is only enough to cover imports for about 6 weeks. Na Pakistan lost sought to help the IMF in 2019 and it got a $6 billion bailout. When miss Khan got the IMF bailouts, he agreed to cut subsidies and reform the economy. But later, he instead reduced fuel prices in a populist move. So it sounds as though the government is stuck between policies that are popular and those that make economic sense. Absolutely. And that's going to be a choice that a government is going to have to make. And on May 26th mister Sharif announced a cut in fuel subsidies raising prices by 20%. That one approval from the IMF, which has made the resumption of its loan program conditional on policies that stabilize the economy. The currency in the stock market did rally slightly in response to that move, but had subsequently fallen back again. What is popular with the IMF isn't always popular with voting public. And it feeds into a narrative of foreign influence as well. The government will have to introduce more unpopular measures to gain further credit from allies such as China and Saudi Arabia. And this month is likely to announce cuts to subsidies on electricity. And the passage of an austerity budget. So that sounds as though it will be unpopular. Does that increase the chances that Khan will get back into office? Well, getting the army generals support a new election will be very hard. And an incumbent government in Pakistan always has an advantage in elections. But miss Khan hasn't given up hope. The coming space of painful economic moves will supply mister Khan with plenty of excuses to.

Initially, chinggis Khan wants to land a trade deal with the khwarazmian leader, sultan Muhammad the second. Chinggis sends a caravan of merchants to the city of otra. But as we learned at the outset of this episode, the response of the city's governor is to butcher the merchants. He apparently believed the Mongol traders were spies. It's not such a ridiculous notion. As merchants often double as intelligence agents. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, chinggis sends a legation to the sultan. But the sultan proceeds to kill one of the envoys, returning his head in a sack. He burns the beards of the others, a grave insult. In response, chinggis prepares his army and sweeps into enemy territory. His first port of call is otra itself. The city capitulates in short order. Its governor is punished for his greed in gruesome, symbolic fashion. He has molten silver poured down his throat. Chinggis then divides his army into three expeditionary forces. He himself leads one of these battalions across the kiesel kum desert. He reappears in Bucharest, where, after laying siege to the city, he makes for the pulpit of the local mosque. It's here that he announces himself as the punishment of God. Bucharest people are dealt with like livestock. A man brought up in the ways of animal husbandry, chinggis Khan sees enemy populations as herds to be managed. Just as he sees enemy combatants as beasts to be hunted. Outside the next city, those vanquished enemies from the last place are used to carry huge quantities of rubble. They use this to fill in the new city's modes. They are then herded in a great mass. Used as the advanced party in breaching its walls. Paving the way for the Mongol warriors to enter behind them and finish the job. These are the same people that are going to be spreading stories about the models of how scary they are. And that fear worked very much in the models factor. The Mongols were not concerned with having a bad reputation and probably strongly encouraged it. Chinggis Khan is fast building the biggest empire the world has yet seen. Yet, incredibly. It's happened almost accidentally. Some historians suggest that in the first instance he invades primarily to chase the way his enemies, and to ensure the safety of his borders. But he does it with such efficiency that those boarders keep expanding. He is, we might say, an unintentional conqueror. It took him a long time to unite the Mongols. And after he was crowned as the head of the Mongols, his main intention was to keep them united because it was quite obvious how fluid this person was and how easy they can just jump away. He rearranged the society of Mongolia. I think this is very important because this is something that formal nomadic chief never did, but he did, and this was a main change. And it allowed him to have a much more centralized policy. He's a guy who definitely has determination, he is ambition, but he does not have a master plan. I think his plan initially is just to survive, he has no grand plans to rule the world or anything like that. The campaign and the khwarezmian empire is what transformed chinggis Khan into a global historical character. A man operating on a different level when it comes to empire building. How does it become a world conqueror? You can ask. It was the invasion into the Muslim world. Really make him a world conqueror because we fall and you know there are many nomadic tribes who fought in the north China, maybe conquer the little bit established their own dynasty. This was not you. And then you can come and in less than a year he managed to destroy this huge superpower two events from this invasion stand out as particularly horrendous. Even by the standards of Mongol folklore, the first occurs at merv located on a site in modern day Turkmenistan. It's one of the largest cities in the world, a duel of Islamic civilization. It's said that visitors can see its magnificent buildings rising into the sky from a day's journey away. Among them is its library, replete with some 150,000 volumes, the largest in Asia. But on an early spring day in 1221, the city's residence spot unwanted visitors. The Mongols have arrived, led by chinggis Khan's son,.

"The latter. For all that the legislative with regard to adultery, chinggis Khan is hardly famed for fidelity in his own personal life, but borte is first spouse. Wields genuine power within the court, and more widely, the empire still have concubines. And the concubines are strictly there for entertainment purposes. But the princesses or the queens, they have status, forte is a trusted adviser until her death. She'll always be the primary wife first sons are the ones who are the next in line for the throne. Anybody else is not going to be considered. When he goes on campaign, one of the younger wives always goes with them. A borte does not go one because she's older, but she's also running things at home. The queen's run the camp. They're sort of in charge of logistics. They know the amount of animals they know how much these animals can produce in terms of food in terms of raw materials. They keep track of the wealth that's coming in. They serve as sort of a wing of the government. And they serve it incredibly vital component for the creation of the Mongol Empire. And his daughters once he starts marrying them off to foreign rulers, essentially become his viceroys. In total, chinggis Khan and bought to have 9 children together. Four sons and 5 daughters, but marriage among the elites can also be a diplomatic and political tool. As chinggis begins to look beyond the frontiers of his own nation, he is given or takes new partners as a symbol of unity and sometimes a symbol of submission. He ends up with at least 7 wives. There is much speculation as to the number of his offspring. There have been many bold claims about how many of us might descend from him. One genetic study in 2003 famously suggested some 16 million people alive today are his direct descendants. About a quarter of a percent of the global population. The exact number will likely never be known. Chinggis Khan establishes a new settlement that will eventually become the imperial capital. A place called karakorum in due course his son will turn it into a grand city, with 45 walls and a palace at its heart. But for now the large royal camp is comprised of a sea of tents. It comes with life. Look in any given tent and you might find an artist, a metal worker, an architect, a weaver, or any manner of other professionals. With his court and his civic reforms, chinggis Khan ushers in a period of relative stability. He soon set his sights on the northwest Chinese kingdom of Xi xia. Ruled by the tangut people. This will be his first incursion against the settled as opposed to a nomadic people. China at this time is not a unified nation. It's divided between competing dynasties. Among them the jinn and the tanguts. It has long suited the Chinese dynasties to have a disunited step. While the tribes they're fight each other, they aren't a nuisance in China. The rise of chinggis then represents a significant threat. In what would become a familiar pattern on the battlefield the Mongols sweep aside the forces of Xi xia with relative ease. But what is it that makes them so dominant? Firstly, theirs is a lean army. The Mongol cavalrymen knows how to travel light. His kit consists of a long woolen robe, trousers, a fur hat, thick sold boots. A leather container for milk or water. A lasso a sewing kit, a file to sharpen his arrowheads. Flints for making fire, a knife, and an axe. All this fits in a single bag. There is just one tenth for every ten soldiers. There's no need for a supply train. The troops milk their animals and slaughter them for meat as they go. Put all this together, and the Mongols eat up ground quicker than anyone else. Most of the troops are schooled in the arts of riding and archery from as soon as they can sit up with babies. They learn how to fire with extreme accuracy. Timing the release of their arrows to coincide with the moment their horse is lifted their hooves. With extraordinary coordination, they are able to speedily change strategies to bewildered their enemies. Attacking first in small pockets, then in great overwhelming waves, or galloping past the enemy in around them until their encircled. Another favored tactic is the feigned retreat. Luring unwitting opponents out of their defensive line and into an ambush. The Mongol people and the Mongol army are almost a single entity. Everyone is expected to contribute to the war effort. And every fit male is by default, a soldier. They grow up with horses, their lives dedicated to working as one with their animals. And their nomadic lifestyle means that coping with different terrains is second nature. Chinggis Khan is also an early master of the psychology of war. He has plenty of tricks up his sleeve to get inside his enemies heads. For example, when the Mongols are outnumbered, as they often are, he makes their numbers seem bigger by crossing mountain passes in single file, so that the enemy sees an endless procession of cavalry. Similarly, he tells his men to set up camp and light as many fires as possible. So that their foes will overestimate their number. He also instructs them to tie branches to the tales of their horses, so that when they gallop, the dust cloud they create is utterly overwhelming. On one occasion before a battle in the early spring, he lets loose a few of his horses that look particularly puny and tight and belly after the slim pickings of the winter months. They are promptly rounded up by the enemy, who assume that all Mongol horses are in similarly bad shape. Thus, their lulled into a false sense of security, just as he sows disinformation amongst his enemies, so to chinggis understands the value of reliable intelligence for himself. As sun tzu emphasized centuries earlier in The Art of War. A good general does all he can to understand his enemy and the terrain in which he is to fight. In this vein, chinggis Khan runs a network of spies and establishes a highly sophisticated communication system to safeguard sensitive information. Given that most soldiers are illiterate, messages are passed as verse, the troops can learn by rote. This evolves into what may be considered the world's first postal service. With horsemen sprinting between designated communication points. It's the most efficient such system the world will see prior to the arrival of the railways. By weaponizing information, chinggis is often able to beat the enemy before they even take to the battlefield. For all this, the xixia expedition brings new challenges. The Mongols have the game to overwhelm any nomadic camp. But laying siege to a city is another thing entirely. In 1208, chinggis Khan leads his forces to the tangled capital. Zhang Jing. The biggest city is yet encountered as an aggressor. Not.

"Colossal adversary like a horse. Then, with temujin's consent, drives his knee deep into the man's spine. Snapping his back. The newcomers can be under no illusion. Join us. But do not cross us. Chinggis Khan enshrines a legal system based on a mixture of new laws and tradition. Collective responsibility is promoted, so that each social group is responsible for the actions of its individual members. To ensure that laws are recognized, he realizes the need for a consistent written language. It's the first formalised script in Mongol history. Based on that of the Uyghur ethnic group, who were absorbed into the Mongol sphere, early in his rule. The Khan legislates wherever he sees potential weaknesses in Mongol unity. Animal rustling, historically a source of much conflict is formally outlawed. So too is the kidnapping of women. A crime that has so impacted his own mother's life. Nor may any woman be sold into marriage or any Mongol being slaved. Adultery between members of different households is criminalised. At the center of Mongol civic life is the leader's own royal corps. Outside his gear, his traditional tent, standing proudly, is his spirit banner. Created from the tail hairs of 9 stallions. The flag is imbued with profound meaning for those who gaze upon it. They believe it physically carries the destiny of the leader. That it is.

"It's a cool, march day. In the year 1220. We're in Bucharest, a thriving city on the Silk Road. It's part of the sprawling khwarezmian empire. Located in what today is Uzbekistan. It's been 14 years since chinggis Khan united the peoples of the Mongolian steppe. And was proclaimed great leader of the Mongol nation. Much of that time has been spent away from home. Pursuing his enemies and gaining territory. Bucharest is the latest in a long line of cities to fall to him. But there is something different about today. Ching his car never normally sets foot in a banquet city himself. He leaves it to his trusted commanders to oversee the plundering of treasure. A slaughter of the ruling class, and the taking of prisoners. But today, he wants to make a point. Two years ago, he sent a merchant caravan of 400 treasure laden camels and a hundred men to the khwarezmian city of otra. He'd hoped to encourage greater trade between his empire and theirs. The Mongol merchants took with them items, including luxurious furs from Siberia. And a slab of gold said to be as thick as a camel's neck. But the merchants were massacred. Their goods were brought here to bhakra. Unable to ignore such an insult. The calm is now ready for revenge. With the city's defenders defeated, chinggis rides triumphantly through the gates, past the wooden houses and market stalls into the center of town. A Khan dismounts when he arrives at Booker's great mosque. He walks inside and slowly climbs up the steps to the pulpit. When he reaches the top, he surveys his audience. Nearly 300 of the city's elite have been ordered to come here. At last he addresses them. O people know that you have committed great sins, he says. If you ask me what proof I have for these words, I say it is because I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me. This is the second and final part of the chinggis Khan's journey. But this is real dictators. Let's go back 14 years from the sacking of bhakra. To 1206, when the warrior temujin has just been anointed chinggis Khan, on the sacred mountain, a birkan khaldoon. Now, as head of the great Mongol nation, he must prove himself a skilled civic as well as military leader. He could seek to achieve this by laying down the law in whatever way he considers appropriate. The modus operandi have so many dictators through history. He can be fairly sure no one is going to take him to task. But he chooses another more unexpected route. He surrounds himself with trusted advisers, and crucially, he delegates authority. It's a model that's worked well for him on the battlefield. And it will aid him in government, too. Family is and always has been important to him. Further down the line, chinggis Khan will ensure that the leadership of the Mongols remains in his line of descent. The Crown passed from sun to sun. But the experiences of his youth is abandonment by clan members after the death of his father, and his toxic relationship with his older half brother. Have convinced him of the benefits of meritocracy. Such a system represents a revolutionary break with Mongol tradition, where blood ties have been everything. Professor Timothy may in most of the supporters are not as relatives, many of them are commanders who have risen from basically being servants or even slaves, one of his leading generals jebe was actually a guy who shot his horse and possibly also wounded temujin in the neck. Intelligent almost died from this. But once they located this guy, he didn't try to deceive them. And he said, yeah, I'm the guy who killed your horse. Temujin is impressed by him. They bring him into service. He becomes one of the leading commanders. Temujin seems to rely most heavily on these non relatives who owe everything to him. He listens to them, they will carry out his commands perfectly. They're a big reason why he's able to dominate the step. Chinggis quickly grasps that the best way to hold his empire together is to work with the subjugated. When the blood is dried and the dust is settled, he tends to seek compromise. Professor Marie favreau it's a very integrative society. So each time they conquer new people, they look at their abilities and their skills and the integrates the people. Good merchant is always a good administrator because you know that I would speak the language, you know, without to count. Okay, get into the administration. They don't have preconceived view or whoo should be in such and such position. If you're able to do it and just, you know, you take the job. Professor Mikhail buran. They have to be pragmatic because if we want to be able to continue not only to contribute also to rules such a huge empire, you have to be open to expertise from outside, otherwise you can not do it. So he has to be open in a way. In one instance, he vanquishes a rival clan, the jurkin on the battlefield. In the aftermath he takes the jerkin leaders, puts them on trial for treachery and executes them. Then he takes their land and divides it between the households of his own followers. More revolutionary is that he does much the same at the surviving people. He absorbs them into his army and his own population. One jerk in boy, for instance, is even taken to be raised by temujin's mother as her own child. This is empire building by assimilation. If you are a group that's been loyal to him, you get to maintain your identity. If you're not, then basically what he does is he breaks up that tribe and disperses the population. What he's trying to do is make everybody a Mongol, and they'll call their state the yeke Mongol or loose, or the great Mongol state nation. He's really just creating a single Mongol people. Now these other identities, they don't completely disappear, but there's certainly suborned to the overlying Mongol identity. There is one last sting in the tale for the jerkin. Temujin hosts a grand feast to mark their assimilation. Back before the conquest, his brother, Bel gute, was slashed by a jerk and wielding a knife. Now amid the festivities, temujin calls for a wrestler off between his brother and his attacker. A giant of a man known as buri the wrestler. As they scrap, Bel gute mounts his.

"And welcome to another day. It's the middle of the week and thanks for being a part of the program. We have a lot to do today over these next four hours and we hope you will stick around the phone call as well as begin in a minute, a number of guests will be dropping by with your headlines with you. As we get the auburn men's basketball, they have a game tonight as they try to inch closer to an SEC title. They won the tournament a couple of years ago. They've been to the final four. Now they want everything. Greedy, greedy people, aren't they? NFL combine is alive and well. A lot of dogs are up there. A lot of Alabama players as well. My Griffith is there will join Griff a couple hours from now. We'll also talk about Josh hypo and Shane beamer sharing the Steve spurrier award. This is interesting. This goes to the best first year coach. They gave it to two people. I don't like that. Sorry. I think I don't think you ought to split the baby. I think you got to give it to one versus the other. And who would you give it to between Shane beamer and Josh Eiffel? The aforementioned Griff. What about recruiting stunts? Remember when the swag was with Texas a and M that Kevin someone had the helicopter? Now they all have helicopters. Sam Khan junior joining us on recruiting stunts. Women's basketball tournament is underway in Nashville, first game went to Vanderbilt. Sad farewell for Gary Blair just 6 days after having his court in the court named after him and an unceremonious farewell auburn Alabama playing now. I'm all choked up about that. One of these days, it's going to be my last. I don't want to lose the Vanderbilt in my last show, okay? I want to win that show. And based on how we're playing so far today, that show may be tomorrow. Let's talk about who our guests are going to be today. Sam con junior, we mentioned Justin Ferguson from auburn. We haven't checked in with Justin in a while. Griff from the draft. Major right. He's at the combine. So by the way, by the way, do you see Jameis Williams comment today? Jamison William he's a great Alabama wide receiver. When I read this article in ail dot com, I thought it was a fine bomb caller. You know what he said? He said, we were the one the game had not been injured. Jamison Williams saying today, I felt we would have won the game just things happen, you know, I guess I know what he meant there. So pretty much everyone connected to Alabama, including Nick Saban, has now said, remember saving throwing his players under the bus the other day saying they would have won the game. What do you think about that? Does that, I don't know. I think when you play the game, you go in there with an entire team and one guy gets hurt. That's part of that's part of it. Everyone loses players at some point in the season. Regular season playoffs. And I just think it's such a line to throw out there. We would have won the game, but yeah. You lost the game. There's no guarantee you, hey, Jameson. You played in the Texas a and M game. Lost that one, baby. Anyway, we'll get into your phone calls. And if you'd like to call us. A 5 5, two four two 7 two 8 5. If you don't call us, we will call you. We were accused of we were accused of doing that in the very first iteration of this show. We probably show started at 6 o'clock at night, one to 8, and I swear. Things got so desperate some nights, there is a rumor that one of my producers would call people and say, hey, you want to get on? I kid you not. We don't make stuff up. Okay, let's do, let's do what we always do here before the guest start coming in. 855-242-7285. And Steve starts it off. Hey Steve, good afternoon. Hi, Paul. I agree with you. I've never heard such 20 K and owned by the Alabama crowd. It's not showing, I sure don't show a whole lot of class of Sabin throwing his players under if I was one of those players I'd be looking to transfer. Well, I know there's this unwritten rule in Alabama that whatever Nick Saban says, it's genius. But even John taught he was with us a couple of weeks ago. He's writing the book on Saban. He agreed with Sabin, but I don't know. I didn't see. I didn't read it that way. I don't think this was a learning experience. I think he was simply saying, listen, we would have won the game, but and he was trying to turn it into one of those teachable moments, but count me out. No, not that I didn't show any class. I was born. I asked you Paul that I got a question I want to answer the first. I got to thinking about the callers. Have you got to be, have you got to be about half drunk in the afternoon before you call your show? Or does that just help? Well, there are some people who are drunk and I mean all the way drunk. I'm not talking about halfway, but I don't know. I mean, listen, it's depending on where you are right now. It's 3 o'clock in the east coast. It's 2 o'clock in Alabama. So is two O 7 too early to be drinking? I just cutting up, but listen, I wanted to ask you Paul..

"I think the conversation really has shifted especially you know now is. We're starting to move a little bit out of the most intense periods of the crisis. At least here in you know in in canada and the us and other industrialized parts of the world. The conversation certainly has shifted more towards. How do we create a more resilient society so that we can withstand The next set of threats. I will just say kobe. Nineteen as challenging and as disruptive and just tragic as it has been in my estimation. It's actually really only a moderately severe pandemic. i think mother nature actually has a lot worse to deliver. And we've you know buckled under the pressure of this virus. We're going to need to be more resilient to withstand future threats that we will inevitably face perhaps finally karen. What does the future then hold for blue door. What are the limits to what blue dot can achieve as you see. You're right there in the driving seat is the only limit the limit on ambition of yourself and your colleagues is it about metaphorical or literal. Buying from others. Is it about citizen engagement that you were just talking about one imagines it could. Well pick next of all of those. Well i think with respect to the technology itself and the integration of deep subject matter expertise and our capabilities in terms of our global epidemic intelligence platform. I have no doubt that we are just scratching the surface. A i is really about machines mimicking human behavior and human judgement and as i said earlier we are dealing with very heterogeneous group of threats. I have no doubt from technology standpoint. We are going to be able to completely revolutionise how the world detects assesses and response to threats faster and more intelligently more efficiently and in a more coordinated manner than we've ever been able to before with respect to engaging audiences around the world. Were currently doing so today. At blue dot countries around the world and multiple branches of government between public health national defense intelligence agencies food animal health. You know there's an expanding engagement that we're having with government about smart policy decisions during public health emergencies and crises. But we're also expanding the conversation with the private sector. And i think that's really very very exciting for us because you know. Global enterprises can play an important role in public health as well by protecting their employees by protecting the wellbeing and safety of their customers. So there's an important role to play there. So i do really believe that with blue dog for eight years. We've been building. This intelligence platform in this foundation but cove and in many ways is just a walk in the world to the nature of this threat. And i think it's really accelerated the conversation about how can together be working to build more resilient businesses to be building more resilient society. So i'm incredibly excited about you. Know what the future holds for blue. God you know. I got into this space as a physician. There's always been a passage in the talmud that has resonated with me which is wherever saves a single life. It is considered as if they have saved the entire world. And the sentiment of that is that you know you have no idea what one person might be capable of.

He said about conquering other strong nations. Gascons conquest began with china. During genghis khan's time china was ruled by three kingdoms the western shia dynasty in the northwest the jin dynasty in the north and northeast and the song dynasty in the south of these three kingdoms. The mongols shared borders with the western shah dynasty and the jin dynasty. The mongols shared their western border with the western shah dynasty. Genghis khan believed that defeating the western shah dynasty would give him a gateway to defeat the bigger more powerful jin dynasty so he decided to attack the western shah dynasty. I the western shah dynasty emerged as an independent kingdom in the eleventh century at the time of arrival of the mongols had even served as a vassal state for the jin dynasty but its relationship with the jin dynasty was not so smooth so gingas. Kahn predicted that if he attacked the western shah dynasty. I the younger gen ruler. One yanji wouldn't interfere therefore he went ahead and attacked the western shah dynasty.

He wouldn't be able to defeat the western shah dynasty at the same time. He also knew that he couldn't destroy the great wall of china because he didn't have any siege weapons so instead of destroying it. He just took his troops surrounded and entered the western shah dynasty once inside the mongols were able to defeat several cities despite their initial difficulty and fighting against well-guarded cities. Finally they arrived at the gates of western shaw's capital city which had a well fortified garrison of one hundred fifty thousand troops.

Shaw gingas. kahn turned his attention to the jin dynasty. The jin dynasty had always been wary of their neighboring nomadic mongol tribes they knew if these tribes united it would become a big problem for them so the jin dynasty adopted divide and rule approach towards these tribes. They incited battles between different tribes and even shifted support between tribes to ensure none of the tribes got too powerful. They even extended the great wall of china by three hundred kilometers along their border towards the mongols however they missed their chance to destroy damage damaging con when he was a small chieftain a mistake for which they paid dearly then twelve. oh four even before he became. Genghis khan tenjin com began attacking small villages of the jin dynasty in the border he then incited these villages to convert to his side however the jin ruler underestimated tenjin. Kahn the mongols. He believed that the mongols didn't stand a chance against jin's military might so he did not strengthen defenses against the mongols twelve ten the jin dynasty sent an envoy to genghis kahn asking him to submit to them as a vassal state gascon however spat on the ground and sent the envoy back to submit to the jin dynasty genghis khan's refusal to submit to the jin dynasty as a vassal state was considered a declaration of war. When king heard how genghis khan had behaved he sent genghis. Kahn message the tread. Our empire is as fast as the see. Yours is but a handful of sand. How can we fear you. The gin kings message was a bold statement but it was justified at that time. The jin dynasty was one of the kingdoms in the world that was well defended moreover they had imaginable wealth an enormous army and state of the art weapons like gunpowder and chemicals in addition to that they had the great wall of china so he did not have to worry about the mongols invading the jin dynasty after all the mongolian army was only an army of nomads. The didn't even have any siege weapons then. Twelve eleven after conquering western. Shaw genghis khan summoned a military council of mongolian chiefs in that council. After consulting these mongolian chiefs gascon decided to attack the jin dynasty with full force. So genghis kahn gathered an army of one hundred thousand men to attack. Jim leaving only two thousand men to guard his base in mongolia. In response jin sent an army of eight hundred thousand infantry and one hundred fifty thousand elite cavalry the jin army outnumbered the invading mongols by almost ten to one yet. Their numerical advantage was lost because of the tactical mistakes. That the jin army committed for starters. They spread a part of their army thin. So that most part of the great wall could be guarded however genghis khan broke through the great wall where it was. The weakest behind that entry point was a mountain pass behind that pass the jin armies main unit of four hundred thousand men was waiting they had spread out on mountainous terrain to obstruct the mongolian cavalry.

The mongols dismounted their horses climb the mountains on foot and launched a concentrated attack on the gen central army. They were fighting on a mountain and the jin army was spread thin so the central army could not communicate their status to the rest of the army thus the central army ended up being annihilated.

Beijing was not a city that he could take by force so his army rated the countryside and centrifuges pouring into beijing and other cities consequently beijing was faced with severe food shortages and the population resorted to killing and eating each other so the jin army had to kill tens of thousands of its own people finally in twelve fourteen unable to hold out anymore. The jin dynasty surrendered to the mongols. The mongols let jen keep their capital cities. Do in return. The general agreed to give the mongols silver gold silk warriors and horses after.
