Travel to Northern Pakistan

"Like to welcome to the show. David Harden from travel worn SATCHEL DOT com. Who's come to talk to us about northern Pakistan? David welcome to the show. Thank you Chris. Thank you at least to be. Your accent is clearly not one from northern Pakistan. We're talking T- well you're in the UK. Near Windsor what led you to Pakistan give you the shortened version. But when I was eighteen. I decided to travel overland from the UK to Australia. And I could as far as Afghanistan before you realized you'd run out of land. It was not in the Russians. Got In the way so yes. Well the happens doesn't it tells away two years and decided that still WanNa girl on the Silk Roads still interested Islamic culture and art and architecture and filling in the gaps. Ever since. I've sort of done Australia and Southeast Asia and all of Europe and a few of the songs but Pakistan is always there the one that I needed to to tick off really well in you chose northern Pakistan on this particular trip which as we were talking before hand you said is quite different from southern Pakistan and that would be a whole different trip. North and south is very different. I mean the north. It's cooled in those areas and they three huge mountain ranges. So you have the to the West. You have the Hindu Kush in the sense of you have the character forms and then surrounded on the north and east by the Himalayas. And they're absolutely wonderful mountain ranges but as you get further south. Islamabad where I flew into the great trunk. Road becomes planes. Sunset becomes desert would way down to Karachi New Arabian Sea. So yeah very two distinct areas. Shall we start them in? Islamabad actually just flew into Islamabad as bad as modern city. One of the interesting says the city right next to it as well. Andy which is the ancient city but Islamabad is the modern city Pakistan pill. Much longer grid lines are easy to navigate. I would say that actually just before I started this trip on originally planned to buy a motorbike in Islamabad an travel up through the Karakoram highway and then head off into various places. I'd read about in various books to say that I spoke to that is a big Pakistan community here in the UK. And I have up the friends one. Who's a Kashmiri? And he said well to be honest. I know you're motorcyclist but the roads are something else and I would recommend a jeep at least so you'd better listen to this sort of thing. They listen to him and I got myself a cheap and a guide to me actually at Islamabad airport. I spoke at the moment number weeks number of months. Really sending out my tinman. He can find out about what I want to and that was great and so I had this a jeep drive and I have to say it was probably the best decision. I made an enormously. I would travel alone and make my way round but I think this would have been a journey too far. How did you find a jeep and a driver a Kashmiri gentlemen here in the UK who promotes northern Pakistan but wonderful gentleman and he put me in touch with Earth's people over the and I came up with one Sean who you turn out to be absolutely brilliant and good thing was that. He's his the Chinnery but often is not. We will turn off the rodent gun sale. This liquid interesting here. I suggest we don't do this. And I think the question slips or went what about safety because one sure yeah this image of cool so Pakistan and especially the northern areas and you know I I thought of the trip I plan was to go up towards promised so and Eko took care of it. Sometimes Chris when you meet someone. They have absolute confidence. That you've made a really good decision. They already felt towards the back end of the trip. We ended up in a shallow. He said near the Afghanistan border he said had I gone two weeks earlier suggested shallow harassed security reasons and it's nice having someone who has local intelligence so to speak and he was always on his phone is always checking where we were not set up. There wasn't one time the only time was rather Longley wanting planted in someone's house and it was an old soldier. I didn't notice but his granddaughter sent his granddaughter all and having a cup of tea with him dump. She walked in with this shotgun undecided K. And he said I started brandishing. The shotgun around me and I was okay Maybe I made a mistake too much of a price to pay for a cup of tea but it turned out that he wanted to show me the gun which was made in combat nineteen sixty in Birmingham the UK because as from the UK and then he was crowded this so I mean that's the momentarily. I felt unsafe that that was it. That was the extent to how I felt and say in Pakistan excellent now you said as I said Islamabad. You said that's a modern city. It sounded like in your tone I was hearing so I didn't spend a lot of time Islam Abbad. I was more interested in the mountain. I sort of pasta very quickly. In fact which we left about an hour nine did we did come back so actually to see Faisal mosque. Okay which is a really beautiful most very modern initiative about nine thousand nine hundred and again a very very beautiful most news in the foothills of the Himalayas. It's great visit down as the last place of his. But I'll tell you about that. I if I may so folks in about nine thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight defies most because in Faisal of Saudi Arabia. Stunt up the hundred and twenty million dollars. Us to build it as one does the money partly he fis but what is interesting is he. Made a competition to will be architects. Come up with the design. Took you shocked. The name one is an Basti. The whole architecture on a Bedouin. Tent shot was pretty interesting in the appealed to King Faisal and he's a magnificent structure because it's like an eight sided tend to really doesn't like a tent and so big on this enormous white marble and gray marble and you just see it for miles driving towards thinking okay. Looks Okay and something. You just don't know the ten minutes down the road you think. I'm sure I should have been by now this grid system of Islam about so you go up. It's the end of the road unless they just ended up votes off the Bat. So twenty minutes you eventually get close to it and then you start to really appreciate the enormity of small the structure and get three hundred thousand people praying ally inside. I think it's ten thousand but with the porticos and the data coca grounds. You've got three hundred thousand people. Pray there and it was real highlight. Visit every interested in style of architecture. But one thing is that if people do visit to you have to take your shoes and men and this white marble and greyish sort of marble and it wasn't a particularly sunny hot day but every time I stepped off the white mob wants the gray marble. My feet wants to get an angle for a pit shuttle. Take a shortcut to the record. My feet was scolded eventually got in as well but that just finished prayer and like go up to the main entrance to get inside to have a look at this incredible space inside and they said No. I'm sorry you can't come in and I said well look. I sort of come with away from London. See this is. This is typical of buckets. Johnny people that they will try and be as helpful as possible really nice and he said okay look you should really go with this young man and he spoke to the man order when we rolled around the back this young man to be around the back and there was a back door and he took my camera with me. He said look no pitches inside and just tap a low. I thought this really really nice touch and again to tread on the carpet I saw rob and really nice and re serene place children. Having lessons and really great atmosphere. I came back and said I gave him my camera and come back and I was sort of going to complaints because everyone in that had come phones. So fees and pitches thinking well. I was lucky enough to be let in so I wasn't going to push that but really worth of visit. This is a lot of history to this place. That modern architecture ignace absolutely stunning in the surroundings of the hills with the backdrop of the foothills of the Himalayas. It's a

"king faisal" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360

"This has happened before in the sixties when it king hit, lost his mind and King Faisal came in and and took over and removed them. And I think frankly, that's one needs to happen now, Mike, what do you think about about that essentially separating, you know, relationship with Saudi Arabia from relationship with NBS? No, I think that history has taught us that it's dangerous for the United States to think that it can micromanage the states of the Middle East, and we start reaching into other countries and saying, who can rule and who can't rule. We're going to get a lot of consequences that that we don't intend. So I would I would counsel caution. I, I would want to find out what exactly happened. And then I would want to try to work with the NBS and the Saudi government to get a more stable policy process and to get more reliable partner. Part of the reason that that that they have become somewhat erotic is that they're in a completely new environment with the rise of Iran all across the all across the region, which was we have to be honest facilitated by the policy of the United States. So we have kind of created this unstable environment around them, and we're not, they're giving them the guiding hand we have in the past. I think we have to understand the broader strategic context here we're not good. No, go ahead. No, I was just gonna ask you under. There's understanding the broader strategic context as my talking about. There's others concerns that if there are no ramifications for this, then then it gives other autocratic rulers kind of encouragement to, you know, kidnap reporters in their consulates in torture people and and the US isn't going to do anything about it. That's exactly right Anderson. Donald Trump has basically given every tyrant on the planet, a license to kill. I mean, just on Sunday on the sixty minutes interview, he was asked about what Putin does which includes trying to kill dissidents in Great Britain and and Donald Trump base. If he said, well, it's not in our country. So you know, he doesn't care. This basically gives a license to the worst elements on the world. And I think is contrary to American interests and I would sight to you. The example of Ronald Reagan who did not look the other way when American allies and the Philippines are El Salvador or South Korea were committing human rights abuses when there was a people power revolution against Marcos and eighty six. Reagan sided. The protesters, and I think that's something we need to keep in mind in the case of Saudi Arabia. We can keep our alliance with Saudi Arabia, but I agree with Bob, I don't. I don't see how NBS stays as crown prince after this erotic reckless and humane behavior. Next boot, Mike Duran, Bob era. Appreciate a good discussion. President Trump did not have anything on his public schedule today. And one of the first tweets of the day was a an attack against Daniels after he judge's decision yesterday dismissed her defamation lawsuit against him.

"The bond is a type of loan from investors to government, the investors. You buy them a guaranteed to be paid back in full on a set date with interest. In day to day work. Andrea one specializes in the US debt owned by China, and then one day and nets walked over to my desk and set to me, hey, enough about China. What about Saudi Arabia? Andrew's mission was to find out how many US government bonds, Saudi Arabia owned something that should have been easy. I was kind of a treasury data Wong at that time, and I thought that I was just able to find that number and show it to my within three clicks. Clearly that didn't happen, and the US Kaufman has data, but it uses to keep it a secret. The US publishes the data every other government in the weld. So why not? Saudi Arabia became very clear to me that this is kind of various there must be a backstory behind us, and there was. Andrea's detective mission through up diplomatic cables from the nineteen seventy s one of the names on those cables was Jerry policy. He was at the time, the assistant Treasury Secretary, Andrea tracked him down. He is for me the only person alive who has intimate knowledge of what happened. Then of how in July nineteen, seventy four. There was this do or die trip that he and the Treasury Secretary of the time Bill Simon, they took this trip or the way to Saudi Arabia to convince King Faisal to agree to buy American spawns from her conversations with Jerry Paschi story unfolded in the nineteen seventies under president. Nixon America's economy was in a bad way. Growth was we got inflation was high. The country was hugely reliant and buying oil from Saudi Arabia. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia at that time was. Was very rich. It had the money, the US government was bleeding dollars and was desperately trying to figure out a way to bring that money back from Saudi Arabia to America. So they hatched a plan. Well, the Saudi Arabia do with all that dollars it conscious. Keep it under the mattress has to find some way to actually invest those dollars and those toll Saudi Arabia, you know what you should do, invest in the safest esaid in the world which is US treasuries. And that persuasion worked because two months later, King Faisal said, yes, sure. I'll put three billion US dollars into Americans government bonds. But in exchange, I demand that this transaction be kept strictly secret. The reason for secrecy was because at the time America was helping Israel with financial aid and weapons sales. Saudi Arabia was worried that all the money that gave to America in the change of those bonds will just simply end up in. Israel, it's a nemesis hand. The Saudis didn't mind. It's money being in America's hands. I could totally about the money might possibly be used to support Israel. It just didn't want the well to know. The ongoing arrangement formalised an economic interdependence between the two countries and remained a secret for four decades. It's also meant Saudi Arabia now had a lot stake in the US economy something they recognize they could use as leverage. In twenty sixteen for example, US congress was debating whether the victims of the nine eleven attacks could sue the Saudi Arabian government over its alleged support for the terrorists. The Saudi Arabia government was not very happy, so it floated some threats to the press that, hey, if this really goes through, we are going to sell all of our US assets and that include billions of dollars of US treasuries. The Saudi government never followed through on these threats, but it had they would have created panic in the markets and hurt the US economy. I probably won't go so far as blackmailing, but in negotiations, Saudi Arabia recognized its leverage over America and try to use that to influence two sessions just in terms of Saudi Arabia's reach into America. The SS that owns, we know so little. So the scale is probably larger than what we've uncovered, but it's murky. So who is in the driving seat deal was the one unearthed by Andrea Wong highlight just how much the to have needed each other. The condition of secrecy when the Saudis to Merican debt was one of many special arrangements that would we shape the ripple the years to come. Part three, the king of America..
