The Political Legacy of Diego Maradona
"So today. Let's discuss. What may diego. Maradona an idol of the working class throughout the world. And so today on the show. We have the pleasure. And the honour of having dave's 'iran who's the sports editor for the nation magazine host of the edge of sports podcast and the co host of w w collision with eaton thomas which you can hear under ups w thursday's or anytime on wpro w fm dot org. He joins us today over. The phone is a pleasure and honor tabby on the shell dave zairean. It's great to be here. Thanks for having me is good to have you with us today and it's been a whirlwind of emotions both for me personally requested passing donor. Because i don't know what to began its Figures that for me personally. I thought we would continue to live on in a way. He'll continue to do so. But you know we started this program by quoting water galeano and you wrote not one but two articles in the nation magazine on the donor and the first one did you did. Last week. Actually called it galliano as well. So let's begin their liberate on what you call it from galeano last week because you know for no other reason that it's a shame that gagliano is not alive. Today to perhaps best crystallize the importance of madonna nominee in the world and he probably best crystallize this. This passing perhaps a better than the both of us combined. Yeah i mean. I guess i would start just by reading the words of galliano about diego. Maradona eduardo gagliano is just the absolute master of words. Somebody who can make poetry and prose intertwined with one another and produce something perfect but this is what had wow diano wrote about diego maradonna that i quoted. He's written a great deal about maradonna. But this is what i quoted. No one can predict the devilish tricks. This inventor of surprises will dream up for the simple joy of throwing the computers off track. Trixie never repeats. He's not quick more like a short legged bull but he carries the ball so into this foot and he's got is all over. His body is acrobatics. Light up the field in the frigid soccer of the end of the century which detest defeat and forbids all fund. That man was one of the few prove that fantasy can be efficient and inside that praise of maradonna. somebody who's as the ball sewn to his split because gagliano put so expertly. Of course you know in that statement is a critique of what soccer had become by the end of the twentieth century which in galliano's mine had been very flattened in very become boring faithfully As more and more countries left reflected an indigenous style of play and more countries started to play like one another and teams played like one another in a way. That was very very risk averse until maradona. Who was you know in both his life on the field and off the field was anything. But risk-averse He maradonna saw kindred. Spirit Somebody who could play with the efficiency that's needed the modern game but also had the ability to make you dream about what the possibilities of a human being could do and be On the soccer field and so in addition we encourage everyone to check out the writings of eduardo. Galeano as it pertains football because it's not just the xs and os. It goes way beyond that. Now even in regards to to madonna but the game itself as well. I'll just say on us. Wrote wrote a whole thin book about soccer called soccer in sun and shadow Of course if available in spanish and english and it's the most beautiful faca writing that you can imagine. I would recommend that this month for anyone looking for a good book to read during the holiday season. What can you tell us about the poverty. Madonna grew up in that perhaps shaped his political views later. Because you know we we just mentioned the the professionalization of football as as a global sport in how it's become sort of predictable and cold as you mentioned there's galeano mentioned but he grew up at a time where it's still not as polished as we see it today and this is very important and understanding you know his views later in life correct. Oh absolutely at Giggle maradona like to say that. He was born in the mud and never forgot where he came from and when he said he was born in the mud literally it was mud he grew up in the badio ueno status and he was the fifth of eight children and he grew up without running water or electricity and that always feel as if he was a kindred spirit with everybody on earth who lived in poverty in this globe. That's built on savage inequalities. Madonna saw himself as a tribune for those even when he was at his most his most wealthy even when he was at his most Flamboyant he never forgot where he came from he always stood particularly with the poor of the global south And that's not just in latin america that that's all over the world and My favorite Diego maradona story is diego. Maradona was also a very devout roman catholic and he was able to meet the pope Pope john paul the second and he said this is what he said after leaving his meeting with the pope he said i was in the vatican and i saw all these golden ceilings and afterwards i heard the pope's say that the church was worried about the welfare of the poor

We talked about the news that Pope John Paul the second knew of the claims against McCarrick nearly two decades before McCarrick was removed the allegations and in kind of a telling way. Are more specific when you're talking about what was being discussed locally among the priests and bishops, and then they got, you know very systematically sanitised. They reached their way up the chain. You could see that page by page in this report. But enough reached John Paul, the second in 1999 and 2000. There was some I'd say I'd call it a protracted discussions about whether my character their next job is archbishop of Washington. And it was clear of that point to John Paul that McCarrick was sharing beds. With young men with seminarians, and at least it was, it was clear that there were allegations about that, and John Paul would have also been made aware of Some anonymous letters that had been describing McCarrick ahs a predator. So he went ahead after receiving a testimony written from the carriage himself. Denying all of that and saying that he'd never had sex with anybody. Ah, decided to make the character archbishop of Washington and then and then soon after, Cardinal and we know what happened. Now, how does this report treat the actions of Pope Francis and the inaction prior to him? The frakking McCarrick I'll give you I'll give you an answer you'll hate, which is that I'm on page 1 79, and there's there's about 300 more to go like I can speak to that only based on the summary. Uh, It was like the Mueller reports for Catholicism here, so let's let's see what little parts are hidden away in the footnotes. You know, you can't just take take the first word for it, but Seems to give the current pope a bit of a past framing it. As you know, he'd he'd been assuming that his predecessors had been had properly. Evaluated the Rumors are allegations against the character and the character that point was really not carrying on is active role in the church anymore, so he didn't he didn't take action until A clear allegation of abuse of a minor emerged in 2017, and that led to the character removal from from from service in the priesthood and that ultimately the frakking in 2019.

"Millions of Americans sincerely love Donald Trump. They love him. In spite of everything they've heard, they love him, often in spite of himself. They're not deluded. They know exactly who Trump is. They love him anyway. They love Donald Trump, because no one else loves them. The country they built the country their ancestors fought for over hundreds of years has left them to die in their unfashionable little towns, mocked and despised by the sneering half wits with finance degrees, but no actual skills who seem to run everything all of a sudden. Whatever Donald Trump's fault he is better than the rest of the people in charge. At least he doesn't hate them for their weakness. That's Tucker Carlson, trying to explain the trump phenomenon. I don't know if he saw the 95 Mile Long Trump parade in Arizona over the weekend, and then that crowd that looked like Pope John Paul. The second had landed in Buenos Aires. It was absolutely incredible. There's never been a politician that has this sort of Ah Base backing similar examples all over America, too. I mean, just astounding. I personally will never love a politician just not in my nature, but that whole You know towns across America that air despised by all the elite. I know I'm from those towns.

He just can't be that whole crowd out there. That has talked to that way all the time off. They couldn't be more enthusiastic about voting for Trump. Whether that's enough people to show up today and get him over the top. I have no idea. And if he didn't have the personality he had he would win. Oh, yeah, he would win in a landslide. Is the entire media against him? Yes. Was the Russian collusion hoax? Something close to an attempted coup? Yeah. MIA when you consider that Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer knew all along that what they were saying was untrue. All those things are true.

Venus Williams - Game Changer
"Hello everyone can t the tennis podcast day. Eleven of Wimbledon relived would have been women's Semifinals Day Wimbledon and would probably have been under the reef because looking out of my window in Putney, which is a? Mile and a half ish down the road from us, W nineteen is in miserable. Say That's great. Thank you, British weather for making some twenty twenty. Just that little bit extra great. But not to worry because. David Matt to talk tennis with. Seven hundred episodes David you just told me. We actually can mark a milestone because we've remembered it before recording rather than fully seconds off the recording. Yeah, we! We've celebrated five hundred, six, hundred one in the past. So yeah I'm fin quite proud. You know it. It draws me when you say it's women's semifinal state today because I'd kind of I'd forgotten that in as much as I'm so used to now talking about classic matches with you both watching them. We've just watched another one to the BBC of. Matches on every day that they're showing Wimbledon doing their own stuff online streaming matches, which is the one good thing I take from this whole period is the suddenly. The vast archive is just being. Put out there for everybody to enjoy, but I had forgotten. That is still Wimbledon and today would have been women's semifinals, and that makes me quite sad, yeah. I, wish I wish I could forget I get the impression that perhaps you haven't forgotten in the optimistic. Every cloud silver lining way that David. I Dunno, I kind of have in a way, I'm just so so invested in what we're doing. The the usual schedule of Wimbledon isn't isn't really in my mind so much. Just me then okay. Trip back to two thousand and five when. Storm strong was winning his seventh consecutive Tour de France title. Yup? The three hundred eighty made its first flight at the live eight concerts. Good friend of mine went to live eight in Hyde Park and she says it was mostly great until sting came on early evening when everyone was pissed in party made and some new material. Juno live eight is when I discovered pink Floyd and realized I two thousand. David Luiz discovered. It's. Matt's now. Sort of got me to to realize that I actually need to listen to albums full of Bruce springsteen and not just judge. We. Born in the USA. Correct. Correct get on that David's It was also the year that Britain implemented. The civil partnerships axe to include same-sex partnerships. It was the year that London won the rights to host the twenty twelve Olympics. And the xbox three sixty was released Oh and Pope John Paul the second died. There's a few. We've already done it two thousand and five much at the French. Open say these are these events that we didn't mention I around, so that was T-, thousand five I was working. My First Wimbledon as an employee I was a bull store assistant. Under the employees of one Derek Dimmer? Who was the head of the bull store at Wimbledon in done that job with his wife? Centuries I think. It was it was a job. which largely comprised heavy lifting and I loved it I couldn't believe my luck that I was working Wimbledon, even they. My primary job was lifting boxes of tennis balls and wandering around the orange practice with bin bag, asking players and coaches. If I could collect, they used balls of the practice, so they could be resolved to charity. I thought that was the best job in the world and I could not believe my luck and I went back the next year as as head bull. Store Assistant I was GONNA. Say You assumed to be promoted? Yeah, that was my first promotion and that I was GONNA. Ask You if you did a good job with whether you got a good review. Turns ends. It did I mean there's not? Much that can go wrong with putting balls and have been bank. But it didn't go wrong, and honestly I just. I thought asking asking. Tim Henman if he was finished with these tennis. Balls are just so. That was the coolest thing in the world. I thought I was the coolest person in the world getting to do that job.
Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings.

She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

No sanitation. So we went over to Ethiopia of two weeks at a time to bring over medicine because the people were dying of malaria, yellow fever to Burke. Yellow says all the diseases that we had cured here in America if the hundred years ago, and the pope heard the Vatican heard about our efforts to do this, so they said on your next trip over to eat the opium.

What language are speaking, speak loudly was elderly? So now it's my turn to go there. And, you know, and I actually was nervous. And I realized. I've been public my whole adult life.

Vatican Opens Door to Limited Ordination of Married Men as Priests
"Meeting of Roman Catholic bishops from Brazil and nearby. Countries could prove historic the Vatican today gave the bishop's permission to discuss whether married men in the Amazon region might join the priesthood here's NPR's Tom gjelten all that happened today. Is that the Vatican said the agenda for the bishop's meeting in the fall can? Include discussion of whether some married men in an emergency conservative priests the bishops still have to debate the question at pope Francis would have to approve any change in the church's celibacy requirement. But just allowing the bishops to discuss it is shift from the previous attitude in Rome would crack down on any Bishop, any major figure in the church who dared to say the preschool possibly get married. Rocco Pomo is editor of the website whispers in the lodge. He is speaking via Skype here, you have Vatican document, basically saying, green light, you can talk about the reason being, there's a critical shortage of priests in the region, only about one for every ten thousand Catholics bishops in the region for years of said, something has to be done to reach more people Paul says Catholics who care for the salvation of souls, should be concerned about the plight of people living in these remote areas. They can't have a priest for weeks or months, which if they can't appraise that means they can have. Mass. They can't have Nash. They can't have Eucharist. Holy communion. The thing the Catholics considered to be the bread of life. If thing that keeps us alive. Spiritually some Catholic activists have advocated an end to celebrate in and the Catholic priesthood but John Gehring the Catholic program director at the faith in public life organization, says this situation is unrelated to that push coming, some, the church needs of the region affects on the ground on Amazon saying, this is an urgent crisis, and we need to rethink in this particular context. How we respond to it. I mean, this is not an advocacy group saying, let's push this agenda. Another point this would not be the first time. There'd be married priests. Some married clergy have left the Anglican church and joined the Catholic priesthood with their wives. That was approved. Nearly forty years ago by Pope John Paul the second and reaffirm by Pope Benedict. Still allowing married priests in the Amazon region because of an emergency there. Could set a precedent. Massimo fudgy, Oli theologian at Villanova university notes that priest shortages are developing in other places as well. Which means that every church in the world can request this Europe, America Africa Asia. So that could be the beginning of a general overhaul of the Catholic church is dealing with telly. A final point for hundreds of years in the early church priests were allowed to marry celibacy in the priesthood is what Catholics call a discipline, not a doctrine Tom gjelten, NPR news.
"pope john paul" Discussed on Newt's World
"The pope has a joint press appearance with the head of the dictatorship bureau sqi, and you can see leg is shaking his so frightened and so on certain what to do with the pope. That he's just totally rattled. Yes. I think that's true. And I think it's just a mate, that approximately said of the polish population attended masses, and which the pope spoke and not nine days in Poland thud. What does that mean it means if you go to that rally to a mass if you listen to that some and you want to clearing ourselves, this for God, maybe distant for freedom at this than for Poland, but still missing you turn to your rice, the person on your rice, you know, that, that doing the same thing that experiencing the same emotions, the same sense of liberation and the person that's true for the person on your left as well. So everybody knows that, that crowd all of them doing things, which in principle, according to a communist hostile to that regime. And that gives them that, that moment than and. Obviously from that point on a sense that no, they don't have to follow those fellows rules, that don't have to obey, then it'd have to be frightened, and they don't have to accept that some political Pasi is going to lay down, what the future is going to be they can make their own future in conjunction with the friends and family. That is liberation since that the pope's visit gave simply by going to that mass, you liberated yourself and one point, where with Pablo who's not a Catholic is not particularly religious. He's a very, very famous writer and poet playwright, and he had been an exile in and had only become head of the Czech Republic. And so I said to him what was the decisive moment where things began to change? And he said, oh, there's no question that it was on the pope came to Poland. He said that sent shockwaves through every single country eastern Europe. We were all used to. Quietly talking to each other. We'd all go up into the mountains along the border between the two countries and we'd all have cabins on our side of the border. Then we'd walk we go cross and see each other because the wasn't difficult border inside the curtain, the big border was between the on Kirkman, the rest of the world. And he said, you know, for me that was the decisive moment in many ways, the pope make solidarity real while Reagan and Thatcher in the pope really matter how seminal do you think that trip was in setting the stage that people be into realize that there was a potentially used one or ability in the Soviet empire? I think it's different in every come because of the different degrees of repression to considerable degree, but protected polls, and including those who are not capstick from the communist repression communist frightened of. They wanted to subvert and they wanted they, they prepared to attack Nuys, but they didn't want to constant open conflict, but they could never predict the outcome that checks with, with the most repressed, then they would oppress because of sixty eight and the regime came in then pose what they called. No melas -ation was determined to in the sensor stole sense of the communist that communist life was a reasonable normal kind of life. And they banished people who rebelled who dissented in the smallest ways to humiliating jobs. The Hungarian government after a period of tremendously tough crackdown. People executed sent off to labor camps in fifty six about some ten or twelve years, they started to liberalize, and they sent to corrupt the Hungarian people to give them a little freedom here, and the Greenwich, increasing. Doses. Yes, you can send your kids to university. You can travel abroad, limited kid. Maybe you can have small gosh, in the country these kinds of things. But the, the price of is, we want you just to keep out of politics. Also got one on the other. And of course, kinda ready clever true leader of the communist, he described his regime's viewers as he who is not against us is with us. And so all of these countries are different than all the government's abusing them, but it'd be quite different ways, and the gradually in all three cases opposition grew. But it goo most, I think Muslims Poland because the church itself on the one hand and the great personal chief of electro insa and the sullen down on movements on the other meant that they were prepared to step out to say. Things loudly. When other people said, clinically and to transform a situation in which the people innocence lived alongside communism and trying to get by two one in which they defined the end of communism comes in stages. They were preparing themselves for the moment when a greater freedom would arise begun to arise. Masala downers. He and the pope in Poland, and it gradually spread to the rest of the eastern bloc until in the end the communist government cuts, a deal with the Australians. They literally have a picnic on the border, but Australia, they cut me by the steel, and then the next thing that happens is people from east Germany, who have occasioning flee through and all of a sudden the events begin that lead of the Berlin Wall. Collapsing. It's an extraordinary story. It's the end of Bootle revolutionary. Regime grab freedom, I by degrees, and then much more massively part of what was happening. I think was that you had people who understood how to be very dramatic Thatcher. Was in some ways a natural teacher. Reagan had been an actor in their first meeting between Reagan the pope. They compare notes on the two big parallels. The pope had wanted to be an actor early in his life before he went into the seminary in it actually been part of a group that met regularly in Krakow, even when it was a death penalty to belong to that group and the Nazis were trying to stamp out, polish national identity. And of course, Reagan Bennett professional actor. So they actually comparing notes on their jobs, and one of the tools that brings to you, and you can see this. I think the pope not just in Poland, but around the world that he's playing the role of being a great crusader. He looks the part he. The part, we tend to remember now is a very old man who was suffering from significant illness. But when he was younger, he was an astonishingly, vigorous person, just as Reagan and Thatcher were both vigorous, and there was some weird contrast between the Soviet leaders who is Reagan said, they could never arrange a summit because they kept dying faster than they could organize the summit. And I think you have some of that kind of experience underway dealing with these guys. And so you do have this sense of mutual vigor in the west and an atrophying system in the east, and I think that, that was part of the symbolism that really made a big difference. I agree with that, that fest me actually nine hundred seventy nine just have to miss his being elected. She had found this energy and this is part of what the pope is playing off on his trip. He is representing vitality. He's also representing salvation. So in a sense you have this failing regime that can't meet any of its goals. Can't give people decent living. Can't give them hope for decent future. And have a pope, who's, basically in a very charismatic and powerful way offering you so Vatian that's true by the midday. She's, they were for putting that departure. Definitely out amendment meeting coming leading apparatchik in London, when he was on the visit from Hungary, and he was very candy in how he described to me the way in which he politics and Hungary was going to go. And he said, both the hog line at the moment is still go enough to stop moving tools multiparty elections, but that's going to break down. And I would guess we'll have multiparty elections in AGA raising on, and I remember saying, well you're gonna lose them is yes, we lose them, the communist will split into it will be a hotline such remaining communist others will become social Democrats, and you posses something like that. And we will lose the first election. That's inevitable the situation in Hungary is for any government is extremely tough. We have lots debts things on work that, well, so we will probably win the election after that. And the fact is that is exactly what happened and they were losing power. But they still have craft and shrewdness and coming, and that's why for the first ten fifteen years after nine eighty nine we had freedom, but the communist was still running quite a lot of things. It took a long time before people in the sense adapted to freedom. They had adapted. I was of communism in eighty nine but they had not in the sense adopted for freedom, and it took some time before they succeeded in doing, so it was a that was a hard decade for the people of, of eastern Europe after eighty nine. See that, for example, with these Germany, which when it collapsed, and they merged with west Germany, the cultural differences between being in an entrepreneurial, free enterprise society, where you're expected to work every day. And you're expected to be productive, and having come out of a communist bureaucracy whereas, the, the famous saying was that the, the Soviets pretend to pay us and we pretend to work, and that's simply wouldn't function in the setting those oven as you look at that period you see movement and you, you realize how big the rallies are for the pope, the passion that people brought to these meetings, when the pope would ride into town in an open air vehicle, the crowds lining the streets in the excitement was and for nine days. That's what he's doing. And so the whole country as you said, the third of the people physically saw him, everybody's on television despite. The efforts to sort of censor it, minimize it. And you could sort of see one of my favorite scenes, as a all night youth movement. And the pope goes and sits with them, thousands and thousands of young people. He sits them for oh, three or four hours, and he sort of has his hand on his chin, just watching them and thinking about them. And this whole sense of watching a new generation rally to freedom rally to the church, and you could feel his sense of satisfaction at that point. Yes, that is absolutely true. On the other hand, we have to remember the all of the other events that are occurring about this time, which make the progress of mankind set of speed towards greater freedom and liberty in Europe and elsewhere, more complicated than it seems to us remember that we huge rallies in western Europe, at that time again. Against the installation of the cruise impose, you missiles by the United States in western Europe, those missiles with the innocence to be a counter to the missiles, that have been placed in eastern Europe, by the Soviets, which directly threatened accuracy, western cities. Now they attracted millions of people to, and they frightened governments. They were always hoping to get the hope of the conflict, judge did get the help of some bishops just as the conflict bishops in the United States, very critical of Reagan's OEMs build up, but never go to the pope, and they got the strong opposition, not only of Reagan, but also Mississauga and other western European use him..

"And that was why when a group of people have been working on this, Danny Graham, and others have been working on this ideal. So, and that's why we had this meeting in my office with some people who were very interested in the subject. And so as a result, we put together a conference with the governor then with the president in one thousand nine hundred two with Edward teller and that led then to his idea of being fleshed out into an actual strategy. And then the next step was to talk with the joint chiefs of staff, and there's always within the military. There's always a lot of competition for budget dollars. And so there was some resistance in certain areas of the Pentagon. But Ronald Reagan as he had them develop a strategic plan for our defense said, and I want you to also look at the idea of a strategic defense initiative of ballistic missile defense system, and they came back to him. About eight months later with their plan, and one of the things they said that as we have looked into it the choice chiefs believe that strategic defense initiative a way of combating nuclear war through missile defense is not only militarily necessite and necessary, but it is also morally necessary, and so they really gave him the assurance that he was on the right track with STI, and I might say the if if the nation had pursued STI with the same energy and enthusiasm that he gave it during the rest of his term as president. Then I think today, we would have a very robust system already deployed and pay a lot safer in view. What's happening around the world with two nations that now have nuclear capabilities, which weren't even contemplated as potential nuclear opponents at that time, North Korea and North Korea. And Iran and Iran. The New York Times called the strategic defense initiative. Quote. I'm not making this up on quoting a pipedream close quote. Margaret Thatcher, prime minister Thatcher had doubts about it at the time. But in her memoirs, she wrote that looking back on it quote Ronald Reagan's original decision on STI was the single most important of his presidency close quote now, can you explain what the New York Times meant what they thought they meant when they referred to as d is a pipe dream. Well. The New York Times as is. Often rolling. Let's put it that way, charitably and and. And they were so wrapped up in this whole idea of deterrent. And also, quite frankly, not really believing that the communist Soviet communism was as much of a threat. They were they were part of that group that felt that even the moral equivalency ideas, we're not foreign to the New York Times. And so that was why they just had no confidence whatsoever. Now with Margaret Thatcher. Was it was interesting because basically the whole idea of. Deter rather of a hedge against war and the nuclear balance, and those kinds of things we're something that in Europe was very much the basic idea in the basic foundation of the defense system at that time just as NATO was going to be installing nuclear or potentially nuclear weapons in Europe to combat what the Soviet Union already had there. And that that sort of that concept, and one of the things she was worried about as I read the materials about here later was she was worried that somehow this would would violate or would degrade that sense of nuclear balance that was preventing war in Europe. And so I think the more she learned and as indicated by what you've mentioned there. I think she really came to understand what Ronald Reagan had in mind, and his idea was that we have technological capability. These that were never thought of one generation ago right for at particularly the generation that preceded is and look at all the things that have happened there. Why can't we put that same energy that same good thinking that same expiration into something that would really prevent nuclear war in the future. And it was also correct me if I'm mistaken, it was also quite an aggressive move. You can't do something like this strategic defense initiative the research unless you have a buoyant economy and technical dynamism of the kinds of Soviets could never match. That's correct. And actually, the strong economy was one of the major strategies that he had in dealing with the whole Soviet movement..

And so they were infiltrating the various unions, the cameraman's union, the grips union stage managers union, and they tried to also take over the Screen Actors Guild. And so Ronald Reagan, literally led all of those unions in defeating the communists that got him interested in the subject, and he read a great deal about it. Both domestic communism communism's theory and also international communism. And so he had formed his own ideas by the time, he became governor. Really and already was talking about these ideas of how do we overcome? What was then our enemy in the Cold War? That's I'm embarrassed to admit this. But the way you put it just now had never occurred to me before we listened this morning to the panel of polls talk about what communism was like obviously for Ronald Reagan in Hollywood in those days. It was not like living in Poland. But he had direct experience of them. Yes. He did. Even to the point where he would come to the to work in the studios armed because there were threats on his life. A man with a plan. Let me quote, your nineteen Ninety-two memoir with Reagan, quote Reagan was more than simply anticommunist he was an anticommunist with a game plan. Close quote. Can you explain that? Well, he actually had a strategy. He felt first of all he knew that they were vulnerable from an economic standpoint. Because so much of all of their national wealth really was being put into supporting their military and their aggressiveness around the world. And so he knew they were economically vulnerable. But he also knew and he had this strong belief that treat him openly will overcome oppression. And so he knew that that it's very difficult for any government, even a very oppressive government like the Soviets had to keep their people under wraps for a long period of time. And that the human spirit would result in people wanting to be free, and he was very sympathetic to the cap. Nations, particularly because these were not just Russians who happened to be Soviet form of government. But these were countries that many of them that had been free the for they'd been taken over by the Soviet movement at I just want to. I'm going to go back to this point because it's so basic, and it's the kind of thing that's likely to be forgotten and coming years, and that is the extent to which Ronald Reagan in holding these views and acting on them stood out. So Richard Nixon Henry Kissinger the order of the day was detente, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford became president. After Nixon resigned. He refused to meet Alexander Solzhenitsyn because of fears of offending the Soviet Union. Jimmy Carter gave a speech at Notre Dame in which he talked about overcoming are quote in ordinate fear of communism. And then this is this is this is absolutely the dominant mode of thinking in both parties Nixon Carter. And then of course, we have dig Allen's famous account. Ronald Reagan in nineteen seventy seven is a former governor he hasn't declared for president yet, and they're talking about foreign policy and Ronald. Reagan says dick would you like to hear my theory of the Cold War? We'll of course, governor my theory of the Cold War's simple, we win, and they lose the question is what gave him whatever it was the courage..

"But if he if he is president for eight years, do you think that once he leaves office, folks, Lou Dobbs and others Jerry follow juniors? We've been talking about. Well, they come to their senses. Will they all of a sudden flip back to being normal conservatives that aren't just sycophants for the current president? Because this is no this is ridiculous. Because now you've got you've got to take every position Trump has you've got to believe in tariffs. You've got to believe in bailouts. You have to believe Russia is a friend and not an enemy. They're perfectly fine. In fact, they're they're great. Vladimir Putin is great. It's just it's amazingly bizarre. Here's what the president said about Russia. The. And I guess this is now the position of Lou Dobbs of the world, we're gonna do something. That's right. We are talking to the Taliban talking to a lot of different people. Here's the thing that you mentioned did in India's their Russia is Russia used to be the Soviet Union. Right. Ghanistan made up rushing really because they went bankrupt fighting entirely in Afghanistan. Rush in part. So you take a look at other countries Pakistan is there they fighting but Russia should be five. The reason Russia was in in Afghanistan was because terrorist we're going into Russia. They were right to be there. Nebraska's? It was a tough fight. And literally they went bankrupt. They went into in called Russia again as Soviet Union. A lot of a lot of these places about now are no longer born of Russia because of Afghantistan. Okay. A lot of. Fake history. Involved in that for instance, Russia did not go into Afghanistan due to terrorism that that just wasn't. It wasn't even one of the factors. Really? And is Russia Russia instead of the Soviet Union because Afghanistan? No, I mean, Afghanistan may may have been a part of the equation. But so were the efforts of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher. And Pope, John Paul the second. I mean, he was Russia was first of all they were spent into oblivion due to Star Wars and. Many other factors that had to do with heading them off at the past every every single chance. The United States of America got. Afghanistan. And that that thing dragging on the way it did for ten years may have been a part of the equation. But it wasn't the sole reason. But they were right to go into Afghantistan. No, no, absolutely. Not that certainly wasn't the position of the United States of America. We missed the nineteen eighty Olympic Games because of it tell that to. All of the athletes who were counting on on the Olympics in one thousand nine hundred. Tell them that. That was the right move. Might get some disagreement there. But I guess those are the positions we all have to adopt now because you can't disagree with with President Trump on anything. And it's just it's kind of weird to watch the Lou Dobbs of the world, just adopt everything that Donald Trump believes. I don't think you have to do that to be a supporter to or to just be patriotic American. Do you? I this is the weirdest thing I've ever seen in my. In my in my life. I don't think it's the most surprising thing I've ever seen because I didn't think conservatives would do this. You know, you see on the left all the time. And you think what what is the matter with these people? And then it happened on our side. It's like, oh, okay. This we're no different. Right. And it's it used to just be individuals here. And they're like, wow, I can't believe so and so as well they're on board to oh my goodness. And now, it's like a seat change. It's pretty much everybody you feel like wait. Is there anybody left? It's just just like they see him right on is it just the disagrees with some of his policies with some of the things he's done that can see. Yeah. There some character flaws there that makes you may need be mentioned at the same time. We're also the quickest to talk about all of the grit things that he's done. We have no problem doing that. Yeah. Has there ever been a more pro Israel president? No, absolutely not. Nope. I think he's the most pro Israel, president of all time. Well, he did everything he could to stop ObamaCare. He really did. He did try and that was his charter that stop them there. I mean, the I mean we've talked about this. He's done. So many great things Gorsuch was great..

"So at the time still own first of all he said that rocky three would be the final rocky movie. He even says in this interview there there will never be a rocky four, and we all know how that turned out to be not true. But he also said his idea for the film would have involved Rockies final fight taking place in the Roman Coliseum. And also the pope is there, which would be Pope John Paul to at the time. So this obviously didn't happen. There is no pope there is no. Roman Coliseum in rocky three. But this was an idea. Rocky rocky Sylvester Sloan head, and you know, he he saw it as you know, rocky being like the last blast gladiator battling it out in the Roman Colosseum. And you know, I can see sort of the Matic way of doing that. I'm not really sure where the pope would have fit in. I almost wish like the pope had climbed into the ring and tag teamed guests over there, Mr. T, guess rocky the pope fighting Mr. T, but I don't know what does the pope even go to like boxing matches not the real pope, but anything goes in the rock universe. Where as we all know pope. Yes. As we all know in rocky four rocky ends communism with boxing. So anything really goes in the rocky universe women? He he could always save this idea for creed. Three. We could have the Roman Colosseum in the pope in Crete three, right? That's right. We can have actually would seem like he would attend a boxing match. To he's he's he's the hip new pope. So I could see him being in creed. Three where Michael Jordan goes to meet the pope for some reason. Okay. So if this Luke Skywalker is mom being Boba fett wasn't ridiculous enough if rocky three taking place, lots of the pope was ridiculous enough. We have learned that they're making a great Gatsby origin TV series with a young hut. Mixed rage gets b. What is going on? Yeah. So there is going to be a great Gaffey origin series. That's being developed at YouTube premium, and it's called GATS. So it reimagined the tragic figure in the X cots FitzGerald novel as a mixed race, man. Based on some academic theories that posit that Jay gas was actually mixed race in details. Book so this'll be an origin story that is apparently retailing through a lens of the the cultural lens of the Harlem renaissance at the time. It's being developed by. At SC sensor. Very, and it's currently in the works at YouTube premium, and yeah, it's an origin story, which kind of defeats the purpose of the book itself, which is an indictment of the fallacy of American dream and don't know how they'll actually make this into a TV series or will stretch out his his origin over the course of a TV series. But my bet is that he will be a hot young gase who fucks and maybe all's mysteries..

"You're listening to the daily on monocle twenty four. It was almost certainly the largest gathering of people in Irish history in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine, maybe one and a half million people more than a third of the Republic of Ireland's population attended Pope John Paul, the second's mass in Dublin's Phoenix Park pope Francis will likely still draw six figures when he celebrates mass in the same location this Sunday afternoon. But he visits an island in which the Catholic church has been greatly diminished in every sense of the word since his revealed predescessor visited one join now by Darren McCaffrey Dublin correspondent for Sky News. Darren, we played at the top of the show a clip of the t. shake Leo varadkar, sort of cheerfully saying that he was glad that the church is less dominant than once was which is not something you can imagine a t-shirt saying by way of welcoming John Paul, the second in hundred seventy nine signed from that. How different is the reception likely to be. I think it's going to be significantly defer difference in many regards in one thousand nine hundred nine. There was a real sense of euphoria at the people visit of Pope John Paul. The second is you say a million half people at went to the Phoenix balking Dublin at the same. It was the largest gathering of people in western Europe since the end of the second World War. Now we're not going to see these numbers at this time round in pots, not least of all because things like mass attendances, absolutely collapsed. It was over ninety percents in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. Now it's done to thirty percents, but ultimately the reason things have changed is not just because people become less religious and less willing to practice that religion. It is also because the Catholic church here in our all is being rocked as it has the world by scandal after scandal involving its clergy mainly Iran's at the sexual abuse of children. So those chances, I think many people including victims virus feel that it is not appropriate because they feel that even the response of the Catholic church today, and even the response of pope Francis has simply not being good enough. Is his visit to Ireland intended from the pope's point of view? Do we think in any way to address that? If not necessarily atone for it? Well, in in reality, he would say that this is about meeting families because it is the gathering and all of that and of the will meet with families. That is the main purpose of this visit. It happens every three years. It happens in one country every three years. It just happens to be in all the band is the main purpose was is in fact, the back into night are determined that remained the focus. However, it is also clear given what has happened in the United States in the last couple of weeks and given the history in Orland. He will have to address this issue all fed the abuse of children and by some within the Catholic church, and it is notable and a certain point June, this thirty six hour. Visit. He's going to meet some of the survivors of sexual abuse. It is not an issue he can avoid. And in fact, actually many saying that this is a crucial moment for the pope in his term because how he reacts now given as what what was revealed in the United States last year weeks at could be quite crucial to how his entire papacy is judged in the turnout. As we've been discussing, vote will be down on what John Paul too was, was able to attract. We'll still be significant. It will still be a fairly hefty percentage of the population of the country, but will there be any kind of greeting on the other side of that other likely to be any actual protests? Yes. So in terms of the numbers be likely to see pope Francis, the expectation is that we could see half a many people at this time round at Phoenix Park, which is you say is still a significant had gathering people. It's essentially twice the size of costume..

A guy who actually tries to walk in the in in the shoes Lord anyway, says you're missing the point Admonition of Joe's job or your job or my job or anyone else's. Forces him to do things that are contrary, to Catholic teaching which death penalty has been for a, long time then he's obligated as a Catholic not. To do the job Joe couldn't, be a, pornographer, and, a, good, Catholic he couldn't be. A slave trade it'd be a good Catholic he candid for the death penalty NBA good, good Catholic yeah I understand what you're saying relative to pornography and slave trading cetera et cetera however here's the problem is the admonition from pope Francis is new relatively new is I've said I did, a little research yesterday too That, if you. Look, back at the history of the death penalty United States or anywhere, for that. Madman, Catholic church for most of the history of the Catholic church, and if you look at, it in terms of what thousand years Almost up until recently until Pope John Paul, the second started saying well I'm not sure about the death penalty The Catholic church has been supportive, but they said no listen you know that there, are Saint Thomas Aquinas and others have said that you know when when you're executed and there's no malice there you're being put to death, for crimes that are so grease so. Agreed that death is the only way to satisfy what you owe, society and then you let God handle that and then you. Try to get in good with. God and repent and maybe maybe maybe maybe get a attornal salvation after that but the church. Has been clear, the teaching of the church for, for centuries have talked about how. The death penalty, is fine Pope John. Paul the second came along and, said, I'm not, so sure, about that as. I mentioned Karl Ratzinger became pope but when he was cardinal said. Pope John Paul the, second, it's an opinion it's the church itself As, a layperson you can support the. Death penalty disagree, with the opinion the. Pulp and then it wasn't until, Francis, came along, and he, said no we. Can't do it anymore Now we gotta act like oh that's always, been the way the church taught it and that's one of the problems I. Had a. Reformed Catholic is, that. They talk about how, there's tradition and nothing changes and it static and then they go and change stuff and then pretend they didn't change it that's argument I have anyway Jason thanks.

Pope Francis Says Death Penalty 'Inadmissible'
"And now to the Vatican this morning pope Francis issued an edict that. The death, penalty is, inadmissible in all cases, because it has it's an attack on the dignity, of the person this is a significant change to Catholic church teachings it also means the church will work to abolish. The death penalty worldwide to talk more about this we're joined by father Thomas. Reese senior analyst for the religious news service. Welcome Oh do we have the father with. Us Good? To be with high father res can you I put this announcement in context for us because until now the death penalty, was acceptable to the, church in extreme cases but Pope John Paul the. Second had said those cases were? Practically nonexistent so how significant is this change this is a significant change because now the saying that there are no circumstances under. Which capital punishment can happen and the acceptable and so this is this is the church putting down a. Marker that capital punishment is no longer acceptable I want to pick up on the second part of the declaration that the pope me this morning that the Catholic church, will work, to abolish the death penalty worldwide practically speaking how much? Influence, will this have here in the US Well that's going to be interesting to see, you know about half, the American population supports the capital punishment in fact. On the forty three percent of? Catholics do so we got somewhere ahead of everybody else but it's gonna be a issue that the Catholic bishops will Bob beyond. That they'll teach about but it's gonna continue to be controversial I'm thinking in particular about the Catholic politicians. Who support the death penalty governor Greg Abbott of Texas Governor Pete Ricketts of Nebraska they're both Catholic and they're both governors who have presided over capital punishment in their, states I, mean where does this change to church teaching them personally Well I think it's to? The, other things that the taken positions on whether it's abortion whether it's universal healthcare in favor of that whether it's in favor of, more welcoming to migrants and refugees there's a. Lot, of things that the, church and the bitch teaching on and. Lobbying in favor of that politicians have this is just gonna. Be another, one of those issues there was another significant. Development at the Vatican this week the pope, accepted the resignation of the most senior Catholic church leader to be convicted in criminal court of, concealing sexual abuse how does this compare. To how the Vatican has responded to allegations of sexual abuse in the past, well Pope Benedict get at a good job in. Saying that the church has zero tolerance for priests that are involved in in abuse and. They can, never act as a priest again the problem was Dealing. With the bishops who didn't do a good job supervising. Their priests or we're involved in cover ups pope Francis, is drawing the line here and said you gotta do your job and if you're involved in any kind of a cover. Up you're going to be in trouble and that is really good and just stepping back really briefly? While, these two actions by pope Francis on the death penalty and on sexual abuse aren't necessarily related do they signal something bigger to, you about how this pope is trying to. Shape, the Catholic church Well I think it shows that he's concerned about the impact of Policies on people he's very concerned I mean once he started listening to victims who came to Rome and he set aside time to be with them and and was willing to talk to them and listen to them as long as they wanted this made a big difference, because this is a. Pastoral. Pope and. When he sees people hurting he wants to respond. Okay that's father Thomas. Re senior analyst for the. Religious, news service thank you very much good to be with you.
"pope john paul" Discussed on Talking Politics
"I think Pope John Paul, the second is up is an interesting case because it be hard to tell a story that allocated him anything like decisive causal role in the events that we're going to lead to eventually the collapse of Soviet rule in eastern Europe or should be some people do decisive whose role that his trips to Poland. In particular changed everything. I was gonna say, I do think that there's something symbolically. Pretty dramatic about that. I remember that trip to Poland, and it came in the context of the solidarity movement in Poland in the sense that this time it was going to be a lot more difficult for the Soviets to simply put down the rebellion that was taking place because after all that's done in check, evacuate nineteen sixty eight. They cut in Hungary nineteen, fifty six. When done east Germany, nineteen, fifty three, I think. And this one they never really were able to to deal with. Now. I think that there's other reasons to do with why that was the case. I think that we can't underestimate the economic pressure that the Soviet Union came under in the eighties significant part actually because of the collapse of oil prices in the middle of the nineteen eighties, the pressure that the Afganistan will put on Soviet rule internally and in the Soviet economy. But I think that he's symbolically very important because it was way of focusing the mole objection. He was a symbol of focusing the mall objection to what was going on in eastern Europe. Prior to that, I think in in the west during the Cold War, there was an acceptance of belief that manifested itself as acceptance that that was nothing done about eastern Europe simply was the way the will was that was the Soviet sphere of influence on that. It was a terrible tragedy. Full polls in the Hungarians the check Tex vacuums, etc. But jumbled second was symbol of the fact that he didn't have to be accepted the former the the most important well employed earlier the maybe that decides event at the end of the seventies, I think it can make an argument that it is if we about to the beginning of the seventies one of the things that really changed. And I think actually the decision to do this was announced in late nineteen sixties, but it was implemented in nineteen seventy-one. Nineteen seventy-one was the jewel of person from the Gulf. So basically in the post will up to then the western interests in the Gulf was an oil interests because what may were would basically management a terribly by the British on Brin was not able to carry on with that goal because of the drain on the British economy of trying to maintain this essentially ongoing imperial Britain pulled out the Americans would deeply unhappy, but they pulled in the time. This was not possible for the beginning of the decade to take on any kind of military responsibility in the Gulf American policy that put is, okay, we have to on this on the Saudi King, and we have to rely on the Shaw of Iran, and that was at two point approach to dealing with western security and regard to the Gulf and then won't pillow of that completely falls apart at the end of the decade. It's an, it's never gone back in place, and it's meant that the US has had to be much more dependent on. Saudi Arabia with all the consequences. We know complications that have come out of that. It means that there is one of the significant oil producers in in the Middle East essentially has hostile relations not only with the United States, but with Israel, I'm not Mace the Middle East very difficult place, even allowing for the other difficulties that already exist. And we can see the ways in which how to deal with Iran is divisive in American politics internally, and we can see the ways in which it is now a conflict that also involves Russia and China playing their role in the Middle East, particularly Russia's a very difficult one to see how we get out of the position that in our and into something that's any different..
