"Balance being a woman has been a help to you. Rather than a hindrance. Yes. Everyone thinks it's a hindrance. But in fact, it's a huge help, because people, first of all, I have access to men and women. And particularly when I'm working in countries like Afghanistan and Somalia, where men and women are usually segregated by gender. And people underestimate women I find, and they still do. And so they sort of discount me and say, okay, sure sure, go do nice to be underestimated. Yeah, I love it. I love it. It's one of those things. But I mean, I suppose on the other series, much more serious side of it is that again, when you're thinking and calculating risks, rape as a weapon of war. Is a unique tool wielded against women. Yes. And for me, when I was kidnapped twice. The first time was in Iraq and that was only a day, and it turned out compared to Libya, was quite sort of it was manageable in the sense that we were working outside of Fallujah. I was working with a colleague from The New York Times, we had heard a helicopter of American troops went down. We went to find it. We got caught by insurgents who thought maybe we were with the American occupation. We finally convinced them we were journalists. They held us until dusk and then eventually let us go. Obviously it was terrifying. We had guns to our heads for about 11 hours. We didn't know if we would survive. Libya was much more violent, much more dramatic. We were four journalists in one car, originally we had been two in each car, but one of the cars, one of the drivers, brothers, had been shot at the front line, so he quit in the middle of the battle, and we ended up in one car. We had to decide how long to stay. That is not an easy discussion because with four journalists, everyone has a different perspective on how long to stay, what our needs are, how dangerous the situation is. By the time we decided to pull back east toward Benghazi, we ran into one of qaddafi's troops to checkpoints. It was incredibly hostile. The rebels we had been covering started opening fire on that checkpoint. So we were literally in a wall of bullets. The men were pulled out of the car. Me is the only woman. I was sort of left sitting there because they didn't know what to do with me. But the car was not armored. So I had to get out of the car because I knew that I needed to get behind cover. I crawled across the back seat, and when I jumped out, one of Gaddafi's troops sort of came to me and was pulling at my cameras, instinctively I was pulling back, even though there were bullets literally going around us. We finally made it to cover behind the sort of checkpoint building. And we're all told to lie face down in the dirt. We each had a Kalashnikov put to our heads, and we were about to be executed. We were begging for our lives. The commander came over at that point and said, you can't execute them, they're American, which this was all an Arabic and Anthony should be later translated for

"You reach level 5 that's Friends without the R, best fiends. Check it out. I think you like it. And if you don't, I don't want to hear about it. Let's dive into some surveys. This is from the body shame survey filled out by just cut it away, and she writes, what I like about my body, my smile, my hair, my eyes, my legs, my arms, my lips, my eyebrows, my butt. What I don't like, my post children belly. So obviously I hate everything about myself based on that one part of my body. Then I can't seem to change, no matter the activity levels. Marathon runner, 5 to 7 times per week at the gym. And no matter my nutrition, I've gone from orthorexic to anorexic in everywhere in between and back again. I pull men in with my good looks, my humor, and charm. They get me naked. We have sex, and I don't hear from them again. Makes me want to harm myself. I don't, but it's the most hurtful thing they can do to me. You know, I, as I was reading your survey, I was thinking what. Are there criteria the men that you decide to sleep with? Is there a point in your relationship that you get into bed with them? Does it happen right away? And I'm just wondering if you put off the having with sex with them. Until you got a sense of their personality, my friend Mickey has his saying that the first 6 months of a relationship, you're not meeting each other. You're meeting each other's representatives. And I'm just wondering, if you held off on having sex with that person, you might find that you don't even like that person, and then you don't have to go through having the fantasy popped of who that person might have been. Because a lot of times, you know, if it's over after a one night stand and we wanted more. We never get to find out that that person might have been a fucking pain in the ass. To be around. But excuse me? This is where I choke. But if we have multiple dates with them and take our time, then I think we're going to have fewer Jesus Christ. I think we're going to have fewer. Of those episodes where we build up this idea of the person that didn't call us back. And then I think there's less pain. That there's less fucking. It's a tradeoff. I don't know. All of a sudden I'm feeling like all of my thoughts and opinions are stupid and I'm not speaking right and I'm too slow and my coughing is rude and the airplanes are distracting and I'm no good at this and everybody's good to leave. That's what I've been battling since I turned the mic on. 65 minutes ago. That is what is going through my head. And this is the kind of shit I talk about in my support group, but a lot of times, you know, I'll talk about it on the podcast, I'll get honest about it, but sometimes I'll just fight through it, or I'll be like, you know, that's the perfectionist in you. That's the mean voice in your head, or even if that is true, it's okay. That's okay. Somebody thinks this, this was his shit episode and the previous one was a shit episode and they're done with it. That's not gonna kill me. It'll just slowly make me poor until I throw myself off a bridge. This is an email I got. And it says good day. I came across your email contact prior to a private search while in need of your assistance. I am Aisha Al Gaddafi. The only biological daughter of former president of Libya, colonel Muammar, Al qaddafi. I'm a single mother and a widow with three children. Wow. First of all, I want to say I am so sorry that you are a widower, but it's awesome that you still have your father. President Gaddafi around. I have investment funds worth 27 million 500,000 united state dollar. And I needed a trusted invent investment manager partner because of my current refugee status. However, I am interested in you for your investment project assistance and your country. Maybe from there we can build business relationship in the nearest future. Well, I went on my I calendar. I'm a Mac guy. And I clicked on nearest future and it turns out there is no nearest future setting. You would think, if they have a thing that you can click on that says nourish future. Well, nearest future would come up. Apparently it's a glitch in the system. So I don't know what I've got scheduled. For my nearest future. What I do have, if you click on a high count, is furthest future. And I click down that and it said pile of dust and bones. So I think it goes a little too far out into my calendar. But I've got some stuff to think about. She writes, I'm willing to negotiate an investment business profit sharing ratio with you based on the future investment earning profits. Those are a lot of big words in there and I'm not sure what you're saying because it sounds like you're saying you're going to determine a ratio to start off with, but it's going to be based on what it earns in the future. Which makes me think I'm going to need a time machine. And the problem is, my accountant who's going to need to be with me on this. He's a woozy traveler. And he gets, he gets time machine sync. So I might just have to go in the time machine by myself. And just plow. Into the nearest future. And I got to tell you, I'm a little nervous. So I might have to take a dramamine, I might have to take a valium, but I'm excited that I might get a chance to meet president Muammar Gaddafi because I got to assume he's doing great these days. If you are willing to handle this project on my behalf kindly reply urgently to enable me provide you more information about the investment funds, your urgent reply will be appreciated best regards misses Aisha Al qaddafi..

Biden Wants Regime Change in Russia... Or Does He?
"In the kind of one step forward, one step back man or that is now come to characterize if not defined. The Biden administration, Biden says that he wants regime change in Russia and then The White House clarifies that he doesn't. So this all started when Biden was giving a talk to some of the troops. And he says that Putin quote can not remain in power. So the implication could not have been more clear, that it's going to be part of U.S. policy to get Putin out. Now let's remember that this is actually consistent with things that, for example, Lindsey Graham said several weeks ago when Graham and effects said, listen, why isn't there somebody who's going to sort of rise up and now in Graham's case he was talking about somebody in Russia by Biden's implication was somehow that it would be a strategy of the United States to be working, perhaps with other generals, other figures in Russia to oust Putin from power. Now, needless to say, this is a very dangerous and provocative thing to be saying from the leader of America to a nuclear tipped adversary. If Putin were to think that his own existence in power and is probably his own life or somehow jeopardized by what the U.S. is plotting against him, think about how he might react to that. So the United States, I think it's completely one thing to say, all right, we're going to try to have regime change in Iraq. We're going to get rid of Saddam Hussein and of course under Bush. We did, or that we're going to have regime change in Libya as we did under Obama and we're going to get rid of qaddafi and that did happen, but it's a whole different matter to say this about the Soviet

"There are a lot of very pessimistic views by some about Ukraine's chances here And I get it The armies the military is clearly there's a mismatch in asymmetry Russia clearly has the capacity If they wanted to to quickly overwhelm and take portions of Ukraine if not the entirety of the country The question isn't the taking Yeah we get that If they can if they could they have nuclear weapons Of course they could do it The question is what is occupying Ukraine look like after that And the reason I'm a little bit more optimistic about the chances of the Ukrainians here and a potential guerrilla war of Vladimir Putin may have walked into is he can't have it both ways Winning hearts and minds and leveling the entire country of Ukraine are not the same thing Hey I'm here to win hearts and minds I'm Vladimir Putin You're right for a leader By the way take a tactical nuke in the face There you go that's not the way any of this works okay This is all dependent as well on the Russian response at home If you don't think the Russian response at home doesn't matter then ask qaddafi or ceausescu That's right It's going to be hard to ask them They're not here You get the point You eventually have to subdue your own population before you want to subdue someone else's population He doesn't have a unified Russian citizenry right now That's willing to say yeah this is a good idea

American Could Only Have Controlled Afghanistan if We Installed a Dictator
"If you wanted to retain control of afghanistan. Eric it's like retaining control of rikers island. You'd need a thought. We would have had to appoint a military dictator there who would have enforced rule harshly the way the president of egypt had to do when he overthrew the muslim brotherhood. We would have had to put an a dictator who was willing to crack. Heads shoot people and it would have embarrassed america and certainly not something by would have done. There is no humane way to rule a place like afghanistan. You will either have an islamist dictatorship like taliban or you will have a secular dictatorship along the lines of qaddafi or saddam hussein or assad in syria so thick that the option of a multi cultural pro transgender jemma critic feminist regime in the middle east is not on the table.

I i have to tell you my initial reaction was but this house is so beautiful the next day trump's lawyers fax me the contract. It's about one hundred thousand dollars for a week of rent. And i sign it. And i'm thrilled because i have accomplished my impossible. Goals groundfloor luxury with room for a tent and a week later i met the jfk cargo terminal. I'm unloading kadhafi's tent from a cargo plane and we're putting it into a u-haul and by this point. I knew the press was onto us so i had arranged for a decoy u-haul to leave the airport. I saw the press would follow that one. So we went on harassed up to bedford and when we arrived at milania. Donald's house there were twenty libyan workers waiting to erect the tent and they had even purchased a baby goats for the celebration when brother leader arrived so that night. I'm trying to go to sleep. But my blackberry starts exploding. Apparently somebody had tipped off the press and they were they were all. These aerial shots of qaddafi tent in donald trump's long and trump was denying knowing anything about it and the town of bedford. Didn't want qaddafi in their backyard so they were threatening to issue a criminal summons against me because my name was on the lease and the next day at the office. My phone rings. I say hello and the voice on the other end of the line says yes this is donald trump and my initial reaction was one of panic because i thought he was going to sue me like this was the landlord tenant issue and instead he continues and he says people are saying. There's something huge going on at my house but listen we can put this all behind us. I just need you to set up a meeting with me and qaddafi.

"Gaddafi and that visit is in about six weeks so just to backup for anybody who is intimately familiar with global politics. Muammar gaddafi was the dictator of libya for forty two years. He rose to power in nineteen. Sixty-nine and he quickly became an international pariah because he used his nation's oil and gas wealth to fund international organizations like the moral islamic liberation front in the philippines and the irish republican army. He was also closely linked with the pan. Am one zero three lockerbie bombing in which two hundred seventy three people were killed so positive change through public relations walmart qaddafi. They didn't quite fit in my mind. But i asked my boss what he thought i should do. I and he said i should go to the libyan mission by that. He meant the libyan mission to the united nations on east forty eighth street. So i make my way across town. And i enter this drab. Concrete building and looming above me. Is this massive portrait of a young qaddafi atop magnificent white stallion and he's glaring down at the lobby and it looks like it's been transported. Right out of the nineteen seventies. it has low orange couches plastic tables and a green carpet. That's bordering on shag and my contact at the mission is an american woman named nicole and she has on these large dark sunglasses and she looks a little bit like jackie kennedy onassis until she takes off her glasses and i realized that she's probably even younger and less experienced than i am and she tells me three things. I this is very important. In all situations i am to refer to qaddafi as his excellency. Brother leader moammar al qaddafi leader of the revolution next. I am to find a place for qaddafi to stay in new york city. Any luxury hotels suite on the east side of manhattan do and third. I am to find a place for the tent. The tent i well i'd actually heard about the tent. It was a bit of a gimmick and it played to qaddafi is routes. It was a large bedouin's tent and he would meet with. Dictators are sorry meet with dignitaries when he went to he would meet with dignitaries when he went to foreign countries for example when he went to italy berlusconi allowed him to erect his tent on the soccer field near the coliseum and when he went to russia putin allowed him to erect his tent in a park. Next to the next to the kremlin. So i thought well. How hard could this be in new york city. I asked nicole if she had a particular location in mind and she said. I don't know chris just rent central park. Well i'm able to take care of the first task pretty easily. I booked the presidential suite at the pierre hotel done. And a few days later i'm back.

Some pretty unsophisticated trojans to break into feet. People's computers and they recorded some skype calls and libyan state. tv played. Those skype calls and qaddafi said you see weaken.

Police colleagues rushed to her but they are still in the line of fire they carry her to nearby chart the second street along with a number of protests who've also been felled the bullets apparently sprayed at random. James's square is no warzone. I tell you what frankly we never expected use of arms from inside the embassy whose classy to use the embassy as shooting place even when the shots were coming out without was just fireworks to frighten us but no it was surprising to all of us. It was shocking to all of us that live. Bullets were fired from inside. The embassy crazy gadhafi stops at nothing is people are sought to named and so prepared to go all the way into do. Evidently they were prepared to die for gadhafi. There were prepared to go to prison for qadhafi. Ambulances arrived and the casualties of blue light it to westminster hospital but an hour and a half later. Wabc john fletcher is pronounced dead. She is the sole fatality tragic. Unlikely addition to along role of gadhafi's victims. The tv footage matched with the evidence of eyewitnesses suggest. Two gunmen fired from those first floor.

Staff who are bused to a special flight free to leave the country as painful as it releases to the british public upholding. The principle of diplomatic immunity. Playing the game to the letter of the law is deemed the most pragmatic course but the government failure to observe it could have severe ramifications for the uk's consciously missions and experts around the world not least the eight thousand british oil and construction workers still stuck in libya that you want people who are inside the embassy for ten days or nine days and eventually they had to release them because they had evidence against any of them. Of course i mean most of the ninety percent of them where people were bitter kratz or staff. You know in the embassy. They had nothing to do with the shooting but the who had to do with the shooting were outside them to see and don't person who shocks who actually pulled the trigger. He either escaped very quickly from the back or he was there under. Some sort of camouflage is just an ordinary.

America didn't go far enough. That true yes. That was always the problem. The problem back in nineteen ninety one to if you remember but oh yes. Now this is boomerang.

But squandered its richest turning it into the rogue state. He was the radical leader who took on the west took on america and was dubbed by washington to be the most dangerous man in the world.

For the longest time. It was pictures of food, which I like I'm deep into food point. There's an interesting quote from Moammar Qaddafi market. He's standing in front of that kind of green marble. Backdrop of the United Nations, the wall that's all marble. You know, marvel from time to time falls apart. It cracks along the veins. I know this personally because I had a marble table. Ah, in the dining room, and, uh, I was sitting there watching television all by myself with my dog freeway. And I heard a just just like an explosion. Was. I felt the house shake, and I couldn't figure out what it was. I'm walking around walking and finally realized. This this marble table about a quarter of one side that hung over the stand. It was on the marble stand. It was it just gave out fell off. I thought Freeway had been sleep under that. Just unbelievable, but So ever known and marble just says I ain't doing this no more Well, here's Qaddafi, standing by the marble wall to United Nations is what he says Moammar Qaddafi. The guy that was beaten to death. By Brock Ascent. Obama Hillary Clinton Humiliated, humiliated on camera when they did it. Susan Rice, Samantha Power and George Soros. It was the Arab spring. That's what made that happen. So here we go. Not that I'm not telling Moammar Qaddafi fan? No, but he was coming around. He was to the point where it was saying. Look, I don't keep tempting, my my luckier. I want to get rid of everything I have really could be perceived as a nuclear weapon. And at one point, he said, Let me out of my country. If you don't like me. I'll leave my country. I'm gonna take some Don't go to Southern France. They said Nope. We're killing your ass. That's what that that happened. That was Arab spring. So they wouldn't let him they would let him out. You must have known too much on the deep state here. Yes, Here's the quote this market coffee. This is in 2009. He's talking to the 60 forth, United Nations General Assembly in New York City, says They will create viruses themselves and sell you antidotes. Then they'll pretend they need time to find a solution when they already have it. Wow. Wow! Gadhafi, saying in 2009. Was he on to something? You know, you can say whatever you want about Moammar Qaddafi, and he was not a nice guy. But he had just straight up. Fox is as the security team he had all female security. I don't know. Maybe that was something That's part of the distraction but just straight up beautiful women that were lethal. They were trained in taking people apart. And they're cool uniforms to tailored Anyway. Here he is, He says this could happen. They will create viruses themselves. And sell you anecdotes. Are antidotes. Then they'll pretend they need time to find a solution. When they already have it. Wow. I wonder who was talking about when he said they could be talking about the swamp. The globalists, huh? The new World Order. Who is he talking about there? I wonder Is he talking about the guys at the Council on Foreign Relations? Get sexually excited. Talking about hanging out with are the mouthpieces for and strategist for think tank for Is he talking about them? You could be talking about them. I don't know. Doesn't say specifically, but he's talking about them. I think So the things I shared with you on this show and things I've shared with you today. Should make you Uh, act should make you act at a minimum. It should make you act to make sure that anything you have control over or access to that you have maybe some input into make sure that it's going the right way as it may be your kids, your grandkids. You want to make sure kids don't buy into black lives matter or trying to murder virus fear. Yeah. Can't hurt, Can it? Ah! Well, anyway, I told you about this, Uh Comes down off the blaze. National Black Power convention activist says it's time to kill everything white in sight. That kind of talk. That's lunacy. That's crazy. That couldn't happen. That can't happen here that that's crazy. Why would we pay attention to him? He's obviously an out liar. Crazy person. Well, at one point they were talking like that. Not like what he's saying that they were talking like people saying, Don't pay attention to that. That can't happen here and say 19, maybe 22 23, Germany. Yeah, you know that? Yeah, they were. They were saying that can't that's crazy Talk can happen that Uh, Run back, made an interesting statement on his place show that was Friday. And ah It was outstanding because he was talking about how could everybody was just how could this happen? How could they have gone along with the Nazis? How could they have gone along with the Italian fashions, Fascists? How? How did they do that? And he was making the case that the tipping point is when the medical Medical associations buy into it. And he was he was using his evidence that the Emma has just come out. And made Uh, standard operating procedure that they want to funnel into all medical school education, all medical schools and where they have influence. Critical race theory. Which is straight up racism if you had if you had the bottom line critical race theory. It's teaching people to hate white people, and they hate their country. That's it. It's 100% racist. You could argue that it's black racist. It's hideous, straight up evil. There's not one redeeming thing about critical race theory, yet it's in every institution and to make it worse. He's right title together. The American Psychiatric Association. I think I've got that right. Whoever the head of the psychiatrist is the psychiatrist club. They now are mainstreaming. Critical race theory is that if you're opposed to it if you don't go along with the premise of that you have to own your white guilt. Your white advantage all that if you could have mental problems So if you were, for example, trying to take critical race theory out of Well, say high school locally, you're working to get it out because you think it's racist. It's harming Children's harming America. Uh, you could be looked at as having a mental problem. So I'm not making this up. Sobek was all over. Exposing this is the point he was making is is that that's what happens when the state becomes the patient? They have to be a legion to the state as their patient, as opposed to the individual human as their patient. Then they could put people in boxcars. Then they can give the type of rules and standards that will enable other people to put people in boxcars and move them toward the extermination center. That makes sense. I hope it does. Because it makes total sense and it's totally how these things happen. Knows what How could this happen? How could this have ever happened? And Beck was making the case and and also through evidence that it happens when the medical The medical part of a society goes over to sanctioning its contents again. That's it. Something in Russian China. So there you have it now. Hey, Emma. And the head of the psychiatrist gang want to make sure that critical race theory is in all of their education and throughout the medical profession that's hideous and scary, totally scary. And on that note, What's Gadhafi talking about here again? I'm quoting more. My Qaddafi's with you, and he said he had some point. They're gonna create a virus and they're gonna tell you they have the antidote and they're gonna take forever stand. We haven't got it quite yet, And that's it. How is it that all these things have happened yet? Nobody ever says Hey, look at this already happened. I don't know. I'm just posing the question, sir, asking for a friend. Put up of I don't want to play it on there because they use language. It's a bunch of students and boy they look typical straight out of I hate America students central casting.

Weekend Edition Saturday
'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King
"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news.

23rd International Meeting of National Mine Action
"So here we are at the urine stool in Geneva and we are speaking about the twenty thousand International Meeting of Mine Action National Directors and United Nations advisors so basically basically unmastered say the United Nations Mine Action Service in addition to Sarah Jerry. He's a researcher. From King's College in London has been looking at research approach into on the link between climate change and vulnerable populations affected by unexploded ordinance stuck in the ground and elsewhere. Welcome everybody body. I'm going to just dive in quickly. Going to Richard Baltimore's Program Manager for South Sudan with unmasks wretched. Tell me the main thrust of the meeting being here at the United Nations in Geneva what you can to achieve this week well simply putting the importance of mine action back on the map. Reminding people there's a problem exists exists around the world that is being addressed but it needs constant support to keep his going a mine-free world is achievable. We simply need to keep doing what we're doing. Just talk me through what the process. Who says you go into a community in south Sudan? Can you give me a particular example of an area is cleared recently. How you've held community? We're helping hundreds of communities Aziz every single day we're going into villages where mines were laid possibly thirty or forty years ago wet forests have grown up around them. People wonder into those forests in search of natural resources to cut wood together the forest vegetables and plan selves up working to render the ground safe and the the the reality is the poorest of the poor go into minefields knowing they all taking a risk. Studying Cambodia showed eighty five percent of mine victims victims. New they're in a minefield at the time. They had their accident but they also knew they were going to be hungry at night. So they take the wrist to go and get it and not not. de-mining is not an option. People will still take the risk and go into the minefields. We need clear those minds to make the land safe. Just start with a level playing field being out to grow awesome food. It is astonishing it comes down to having to live from day to day and Edwin fake money. If I can come to you know you were in Cambodia. Do you share richards. Experience experience. There is that what you were finding radio program officer unless now but you were working for a long time with U. N. D. P. The UN Development Program. Yes you actually see that people take risks risks. When they're hungry they will try to the forest to find food if they have piece of land contaminated? They will try to farm it so that they can grow the rice. It's basically subsistence isn't farming for everything there. And if they contact us the land and they will take measures to go in and see if they can actually get food. What's your message to the conference? Is this week. There is a need for us to address this theory's hope for example specifically for Kamalia. Two hundred twenty five is a goal for them. It can be achieved there to clear. All of known remaining landmines by twenty twenty-five how many we talking about. It's there still about nine hundred square kilometers of land mines but it was like a lot. I mean look look and you say twenty. twenty-five it is a lot but the government has actually committed themselves. You know Wait I left Komodo last year. They committed themselves that they will give ten percents counterpart funding to any international funds. Subtle coming for Mine Action and you be assumed that in the sense that last year we got ten percent of those about about two hundred thousand dollars last year from the Komo government which is a first big step for them taking responsibility for the problem that they have so there is progress and hopefully by two thousand twenty five and quickly back to Richard. You said that South Sudan continues to be contaminated by mines laid out decades ago but their goal is twenty twenty. He's seven four title Clearance Twenty Twenty Six if the current peace can hold if we can get access to all areas then. It's reasonable with current levels of funding as long as that maintained that we we will complete clearance by Twenty Twenty Six but ordinance will continue to appear for decades. There is still ordinance turning up across Western Europe that was fought over a hundred two years ago. Being ploughed up in the fields of Belgium reality of any conflict affected country but in the short term you need sustained funding to help South Sudan Dan. As many other countries need to decontaminate. You cannot come quickly to use Aruna Jerry from King's College London research only be looking at the link between climate the change and unexploded ordinance or nine months contamination. Can you tell me a bit about what you felt. I've been looking specifically at the conflict context. I've been looking at mine. Action in how they interrelate from post conflict peacebuilding framework and the climate. He's something that I've come into recently looking at how that is adding the levels. Abelson wonder ability because I was in Angola in September doing some work where they went national saint for Humanitarian De Mining on a research project. Nick and what we saw there was that once fields are cleared that the farmers there are grateful because clear and provide quite a lot of land. And what they're doing is resorting to the cotton slash methods of cultivation now. What that does the environment is? Just at the the time the fires in the Amazon on but in Angola there was second highest fires when the satellite team. It is dance so while we can clear and and the farmers were saying yes but the drought has impacted so yes. The farm has been returned to the farmers. But there are other you know beyond the mine in action and my take into that is can we incorporate as a sector. Can we bringing other lessons for these people when we out there with them saying once we've cleared the farm may be a certain sense of responsibility in the ways. We cultivate and all so integrating being innovative in our practice to dealing with communities to reduce their ability interesting. So what you're calling for really is for broader approach to helping communities once the areas made safe. So I don't know maybe I could turn to you. Seddon Threat Mitigation Officer with the Mine Action Service so he didn't a lot of work into be at the moment. I don't know how house access you have there. Because we've had talks recently here in Geneva for ongoing between opposing parties fighting outside Tripoli to the South how are you UH helping communities get safer and be free of this sort of scourge that must induce mentality among populations yes. There are two real issues to addressed. ICED firstly is that Libya has the world's largest uncontrolled ammunition stop palm. It is estimated that there were between one hundred fifty thousand two hundred thousand tonnes of uncontrolled control munitions across Libya. Also what we've seen recently in the fighting which broke out in southern Tripoli in April of last year is the expenditure ordinance and the threat posed by explosive remnants of war as increased and sadly many of the areas that were previously cleared of you exit have now been reconsolidated as a result. The current fighting some specific concerns that we've got amendment relates to some of the more complex munitions that The Libyan's require assistance to dispose off. And the previous Qaddafi regime for example bolts some quite complex missile systems that use talks ick propellants and these toxic propellants pose a very considerable threat to the environment went and also to the Libyan people which live close proximity to their storage depots so one of the projects that are mass. Lear initiated with support from the German government his to safely dispose of some of these very hazardous liquid propellants in Libya. Thank you Bob for that. Now I'm going to turn to leave because you're the Global Communications Honcho Four. Unless you could tell me how many countries on Mrs Operating in I'm what stays sort of information sharing between those officers who are involved in making community safe and and maybe what are the new ways that we using computers not officially intelligence to help us improve decontamination. Everywhere yeah the United Nations by action service we of nineteen programs in countries and territories around the world the UN as a whole is a little bit over thirty so the UN is. We're mine action. United Nations mine. Action has the Inter Agency Coordination Group for Mine Action which we helped to service and facilitate and that's really is an information exchange so and this meeting that we're at this week in Geneva Leyva where we have the national directors from all over the world from every mine affected country. I'm comes in. That's a big part of it is to share lessons learned best practices and the technology which is very important specifically with with improvised explosive devices. I mean we've been working for years in Afghanistan. We've seen a lot of devices that were used in Afghanistan that show up in other conflict zones specifically today's in Somalia we've seen stuff in Iraq. There's an innovation there. There's obviously on the dark web. People have access to figure out WHO's building. What and how are they building yet? What type of charges etc.? So you have to stay alert and you have to be following that. Obviously that's not something terribly new military out there in the world The United Nations. We don't don't particularly do intelligence service things but we are starting a database now in order to try to bring in academics and the governments that want to share that information in order that we make our people on the ground safer so that people would have some type of place to go to look at the type of devices I see they can do photos of directly and put it up in this database and then people can look at it from other parts of the world and say immediately. I've seen that. Don't touch that wire. I mean if you WanNa get it simple or this is probably how it is or the or the charter is going to be. You know. Two hundred meters. There's away or is that kind of thing and somebody mentioned earlier today when we were speaking about infrared Is that you know the technologies that exist out there. They are extremely deadly. It's a little bit different than a landmine. I'm where you're just using a metal detector and you're going along and something beeps and you're saying okay is that you know a pop top or is that something more dangerous when you deal with. ID's there three hundred sixty degrees so you don't know where they are And I mean there was just an attack recently in Afghanistan for example where somebody stuck a charge on the top of the roof of a car which killed the UN employees it was UNDP and that's an example of something which smit this new database that's going to be soft launch today at this is meeting with look into. So what specs do you need for your car roofs when the UN by vehicles because that's obviously a weakness right when a car sitting in traffic and somebody puts a bomb on the roof of of it and nobody thought about that but there are ways to know if there's devices on a car magnetic sensors that tell you. Something's been added this car and that's the kind of stuff that we need to know. The the United Nations need in order to keep all personnel. And all NGOs safe. It is frightening. You could be totally paranoid radio studio. They want to step foot outside. Because it's you know I've read the English patient I've read the some of the mindset of somebody who's laying mines encounters and things. I think my goodness this is just extraordinarily frightening writing and terrifying. And I'm Bob you're saying earlier the the threat of mines is not going away. Sadly the very effective asymmetric form of Attack Jack and the effectiveness of the ID as technology level is now very much understood by. The extremists are employing days. I mean sadly that knowledge is now the Leah's mentioned the information is disseminated now across the Internet. It is relatively easy now for people with no previous experience or training to acquire The knowledge from the web to make homemade explosives and to build quite sophisticated audience systems from scratch. You know with any external intervention. So so you're suggesting earlier Bob that it's not just a question of getting the minds out of the ground. It's a broader approach. Can you maybe explain what that means. Yes certainly insufficient really just to deal with the the explosive threat itself itself when one considers the threat posed by ideas. You really look at the the. ID system so it requires an effective whole of government approach. And that's very much based on not just the entity that's dealing with the explosive straight itself. But you got to look at the forensic organization that recovers evidence the analysis of that of the good police squirt this required to identify locate arrest and then process the perpetrators through the judicial system and Libya. This is happening. It is happening. Actually the The Mass Libya team has worked quite closely with Libyan authorities. And we've been trying to develop the forensic skills of the Criminal Investigation Department such that the Libyan police. I can do this themselves. Thank you very much. I think we've pretty much come to the end of this discussion very brief Look at what your and Mine Action Service is doing. It's been a delight to have you here but I'd love often any final messages or thoughts that you have before you plunge back into the dark recesses of the UN Pele here in Geneva and share information which is obviously why you're here simply that clearing clearing the wolves. Lamont problem is achievable. It's very very achievable. I started de-mining in nineteen ninety-three when the world talked about it being a thousand year problem problem now it down to single digits of years with realistic assessments. Credible Clarence methods. We're winning this fight. Unfortunately the fighters moved on on the problem is not being replaced by problem. The crux of this issue is ending grievances. If people want to find a way to kill each other's they will do so but in those countries where the wounds have healed such as Cambodia. We can go on and complete the Job Sarah Jerry Richard. Bulte Bob Seddon ugly really would yeah. Many things

Booing The President, What Goes Around Comes Around Politics And al-Baghdadi's death
"Trump was at the game last night where he was greeted with boos when his attendance was announced during the game accord the Washington Post the crowds sustained booing hit almost one hundred decibels and was followed by chance of lock him up impeach trump when he was introduced after the third inning he good morning and welcome to morning Joe it is Monday October twenty eight and with us we have MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere president of the Council on Foreign Relations and author of the bulk a world in disarray Richard Haass columnist and Associate the Washington Post David Ignatius and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Retired Four-star Navy Admiral James to Rita's he's chief international security and diplomacy analyst for NBC News and Msnbc it was sort of startling and sad to hear those chance of lock him up Saturday from the crowd I do no pleasure in that it really was there have been many traditions that have been brought about Donald trump and his supporters and people around that are UNAMERICAN of even fascist like a chance of lock her up the sent her back but the lock lock her up about Hillary Clinton repeatedly has become a centerpiece and that's what that's what dictators they take over and then they start talking about imprisoning others and it's un-american it's it's here here playing chant here aw that's that's unfortunately it's been fad to America's political system through Donald Trump and last night it was turned against him it but again it's it's it's un-american and the people in the stands that were doing it last night shouldn't have done it in fact they learned they have learned from Donald Trump that's what you do to political opponents I hope that Donald Trump after saying that he could be facing this entire campaign will cut it out we'll cut it up because this is I remember when Barack Obama was leaving office a lot of liberals wanted George W Bush tried by some international tribunal. I remember saying don't do it because it will be you on the other side of the presence he didn't have to worry about retribution from person that you follow yeah of course you don't you never think Mike Barnicle nobody everything's said anybody's ever going to follow them as president the United States when they first get in just like Donald Trump it's never he's never imagined it but live by the sword die by the sword and sure enough now you have donald trump having bar conduct an outrageous an outrageous investigation against Barack Obama and Donald Trump even calling the forty fourth president United States treasonous it's like this guy is just not smart enough to figure out that it goes around comes around and what he dishes out to others will be dished out to him that's why everybody has to tone it down stop chance stop with fat stop with fascists like tactics and the rhetoric it's just on I'm American and it's just not right yeah Joe and you know if you know this I mean most people know this what of people in this country just want the entire situation calmed down they want the country to come down they want candidates to come down be tough to have the crowd last night come down because really into it unfortunately but I think it's important going forward especially today as we talk about the events that occurred over the weekend that we take the time and the fought to separate it donald trump and whatever you feel about Donald trump to separate him and how he behaves in how he speaks from the actions of the Delta Force team the special operation now flew in and conducted that mission is to separate things and the best of the best of who we are and what we do around world's in why so much of the world still relies on this was in operation over the weekend Jonathan Lemaire you can speak to that but also last night yeah I mean it is certainly an American tradition to boo politicians who go to baseball games there's there's a rich history of the American president seeing the American pastime William Howard Taft was the first president throwing the first pitch I remember the Barco was there and every president since has at some point this accident has not yet not since taking office but he went last night I think the people around him we're hoping it could be part of the victory lap after announcing the death of album Dotty earlier in the day that of course was not the case but let's remember he's deeply deeply unpopular in the district of Columbia itself received about four percent of the vote there in two thousand sixteen obviously it's a little bit of a different crowd last night the world series it's more out-of-towners more corporate types still he was going to get booed and he was but certainly it comes at the end of what his administration feels like a a a significant watershed day for him to be able to make this announcement of the death as Mar Mike said you could separate the president and feelings towards him with what happened the day before in Syria this leader of Isis killed this is just gives president an image he thinks to put alongside President Obama's announcement of the death of Sama Bin Laden and it certainly comes at exactly the right time his people feel for it's an undeniable triumph to happen during the midst of the impeachment inquiry and it allows him to defend his Bryant C. and Syria just somebody Republican senators critical we know we're here we can we get we're GonNa get to that right now get Sewri obviously just follow pro Jonathan said there is a very long enrich fish presence it sporting events most of them do all different but now but again I speak to the lock him up chance again I it's just un-american it started with Donald trump in fact he's made it the centerpiece of his campaign rallies we find it sickening when it happened rallies Kinda sickening it's we we are Americans and we do not do that we do not want the world hearing has chant lock him up to that he created this president or any president that's all I'm saying let's hope is move forward maybe this one US fascist tactic he and his supporters us during chance that you were going to actually imprison your political opponents so let's evatt behind and just I don't we'll see we'll see if the astros possible going to finish it off in Houston I don't know if Max can pitch game seventy it's possible that's what she will tell me before we came but I said President Trump yesterday confirmed the death of Isis later Abu Baqer al-Baghdadi following a raid this weekend in northwestern Syria by US special operations forces president trump tease the announcement in the tweet on Saturday night writing quote something very big has happened God I know by the way they had not confirmed it happened at the time as the Washington clown show post points out the White House script on the death of brutal terrorist Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi was short but president trump turned a somber announcement into a vivid forty minute news conference that included bravado detailed descriptions of military option rations questionable statements and self promotion from the first day I came to office and now we're getting close to three years I would say doc where's al-Baghdadi I want al-Baghdadi and we would kill terrorist leaders but they were names I never heard of they would names it weren't recognizable and they weren't the big names some good won some important ones but they weren't the big name I kept saying where's Al Baghdadi and a couple of weeks ago they were able to scope amount you know these people are very smart than not into the use of cell phones more than not they're very technically brilliant you know they use the Internet better than almost anybody in the world perhaps other than Donald Trump but they use the Internet incredibly well and what they've done with the Internet through recruiting and everything and that's why he died like a dog he died like a coward he who is screaming and crying and frankly I think it's something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids WANNA leave various countries including the United States they should see how he died now Admiral S- Ravidas ah yeah we'll we'll see we'll get to the the strategic importance of what we get to but again just underlining un-american language and and the sound of tyrants again he died like a dog died like a coward upbringing screaming it's just can you please explain to maybe three of Donald Trump supporters who fist when they hear that the downside of that ny the forty four American presidents who preceded him did not talk about casualties on the ward even if they were the most heinous casualties like Osama bin Laden are are are you name it or Japanese opponents at war are not cease why we we didn't talk that way or Qaddafi in Libya for example In every case Joe the problem here is there's is that internal desire to kind of take victory lap but it's counterproductive it comes across as unprofessional it's spiking the ball in the end zone and here's the real problem it's motivational for the other side make an argument that it's a deterrent I don't think so I think that that tape will be played particularly that image of the dog in the Arab world is well known as as an extremely negative and that'll become a recruiting tool that the Islamic state uses on the Internet and for the record I'd say they're better than Donald Trump there managing apparently to conduct a global operations without owning a shred of territory in Easter after we took away the caliphate from them which was another good accomplishment they still conducted a massive attack in Sri Lanka using the Internet to recruit proselytizing conduct the operation they will use this footage to motivate their followers to recruit more. It's really not how we WANNA play the Yes it is it is actually a much smaller level it's what you call basically press clippings from from locker from for locker uh-huh where somebody on the other side said something you cut out the press clippings you put it up and you used to inspire other people in something we don't want here let's let's let's let's go Richard Haass go to and talk about the impact of the death and we'll we'll get into some of the other things I obviously I remember us being celebrating at least most Americans Saar cow was killed I believe it was in two thousand six two thousand seven thinking that the guy that really was the inspiration for Isis and of course that just lead to more silence splinter groups we of course all celebrated we had our on the deck of the Missouri moment a little bit when Osama bin Laden was killed and two thousand eleven we're all cheering but of course out of that came the rise of Isis and so I'm wondering it's we see very important death but do we make the same one man is going to end the movement that he was so successful in spreading the short answer is yes there's no such thing as decapitation when comes to dealing with terrorists because whether you call them networks of movements they're not narrow organizations that are highly structured we're getting rid of the leadership essentially Abel's all the fighters they'll they'll reform they may splinter and so forth decentralisation there in formality in some ways is is a degree of strain so I think we've got to keep the accomplishment as meaningful as it is in perspective and more important justice important you've got to take steps back and say are we putting ourselves in a position where we can do this sort of thing again and again as we will need to do and there I think the jury's out or you've got to say it's going to become much more difficult we're not gonNA have the forces on the ground collecting the intelligence we're not gonNA have partners like the Syrian Kurds and other Kurds doing so much there's still questions about the willingness of this administration to work closely with its own intelligence community so again yesterday was an important day but we shouldn't exaggerate it and I'm really worried about going forward whether we're going to be able to repeat this because we're going

Trump's Syria envoy says he wasn't consulted on troop withdrawal
"Senators continue their bipartisan condemnation of president trump's decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria correspondent Linda Kenyan has that story the trump administration special envoy for Syria and the anti ISIS coalition says he was not consulted about president trump's decision to withdraw US troops from Syria James Jeffrey told the Senate foreign relations committee the volatile situation created by the U. S. troop withdrawal has been made even more volatile now that Russia has become involved this devil's brew mixes together the three champions of Middle East asada local despot aside arguably worse than Saddam a Qaddafi and ideological stayed on the March a rien in several variants of radical Islamic terror from ISIS to our newsroom given all of that and the fact that the US abandon its Kurdish allies were fighting ISIS senator Ben Cardin and Jeffrey does he agree with the president's action you are fully in accord with the president's decision to relocate our troops I carry out the instructions my question to you full you've you've now said didn't have any effect so do you agree with this policy or not I agree that presidents have to make that decision not people in the bureaucracy such as any for the record you did not answer my question Jeffries testimony came as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought a resolution to the Senate floor denouncing Turkey's invasion of northern Syria and prodding president trump to hold his withdrawal of US troops from the region we cannot effectively support our partners on the ground without a military presence McConnell did not include sanctions against Turkey for its aggression against the Kurds saying now is not the time when it is like extremely carefully before we employ the same tools against a democratic NATO allies that we would against the worst rogue state Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer says the president's actions effectively on least those very rogue states the currents were fighting to contain their ISIS prisoners escaping and Schumer says this puts the US in danger this one of the worst decisions in decades senator Tammy Duckworth a wounded war veteran says to prevent another terrorist attack the U.

Derby d'Italia Preview
"Hello welcome to the show. The Italian peninsula is pulsating at the prospect of the the Italian. I described the anticipation level. Here is above average shackling shocks. The only major daily Steve Nickel Craig Burley Guide Makoni is with US too. He is certainly quaking at the prospect of you venter's against Inter. We can see they are the top two teams in in Syria. After six games into perfect with six wins out of six events is just the two points behind them. The automakers actually actually make it into slight favorites to win this at home. You've into sit close to two to one for the win just over two to one on the draw gap. Let's start with you. It's always a massive game but many are calling this the biggest WTI Italia in close to a decade why simply because it's really the first time in close to a decade that that interacts legitimate contenders they've won every game name thus far in they're coming off a Champions League week where they went to the camp now in Barcelona and for more than an hour they play really really well and then perhaps had a dip at the end and so all these factors together coupled with all the all the subjects here obviously you've got doggone thing and Bep in Mata going back to take on to take on new Venice. You've got you know geico go dean against skips. Ronaldo renewing old rivalries there. You've got show many things going on on the side as well. I think there is a sense that the people are ready after so many years of vendors dominance for for somebody to go and deliver the title and it would be quite a story if it were who does it contain against Syria sorry of course gap the battle of the recently deposed Chelsea coaching say. Let's let's get to the teams that you expect to see out there. GAP STARTS OUT WITH INTER-WAR. What is it starting eleven and we look at blue collar. Who Missing Out in mid week? He's should be fit again so he's up front. There's no Alexis Sanchez who suspended of course foolish suspended I might add highly would've started anyway Dombrowski of coming in on the right wing Mozart elite for beyond that it's really interest- best eleven recenter backs and really explosive midfield led by Stefan with and Brockovich rough and what about event is Gab. Renaldo is starting to click yeah some debate about whether it's developed Renaldo whether it's GonNa be Wayne and who Seattle upfront some debate over the formation I should do. There's a lot more than certainty here which weird when you think society team we know that his best eleven we'll have douglas on the wing and that that four three three with church turns before for two off the ball but there is no douglas costs are so the thinking is we're going to see somebody in the whole it could be Aaron Ramsey. We will the Aaron Ramsey it could be. There's also the option of been lining up as sort of the third man in that three prong attack in midfield. Probably what what right now you would say three and ambulatory continued to write back in part because the show and then levels out in part because he's done a pretty decent job there and obviously community but we know that he's not gonna be back until the new year so it's partnering Pucci Delicious Delicious Prospect. Isn't it great big one for Ramsey's relatively house played the GOP said they'd give teams a bit more hard to gauge because Sarah has changed around and they have a big squad but as another market down for inter who started this season fantastic well okay had a big challenge in mid week which the the Ba- lost whoo certainly won't disgraced and the debt of CIANCI's against the US side who haven't quite had the straps yet. I think gobs mentioned this before. I think one of the big things enter is not just the fact that they've got. Some new faces in the playing field is the fact that Antonio Conte has given the funds hope as well and you know. Here's is a guy that goes to ut lingering around seventh previous even towns around it goes to Chelsea has a has a bad star tones it round that season they went new league and to get off the six games in the League of Women Star. I think giving everybody a and rightly so I'll look forward to but the two biggies is tested all coming within four or five days and then you know got good gauge of where enter our by by Sunday night I coming off that loss against since Barcelona as well I I'm interested to see coney goes both because of the Madrid in bothell on an yes they played well for no doubt shed but ultimately law is he going to try and set trying to save some energy because they they gave me or will he try and take advantage of the modern pop because it's five against four my opinion of safely we three you. You know sorry one which which we did. He go accompanied my mind up whether he goes on the front foot or whether it goes conservative. Yep You get the sense out there. Slow Start Conventis is starting to enjoy full now and Maurizio. Sorry starting to figure things out as you'd expect. This event is a still you've enters the daytime daytime defending champions for for a reason. I still think that this is you've enters. That hasn't hit full stride just yet. I feel they can go up a game or two and I act who is coming would be playing seemingly for the long term now. I don't think he's found his confidence either. Just yet alongside Baluchi intend to catch a new Venice. This is about as good a time. No parental yeah to get something out of it. I can key players Craig fee. Oh you who stands out on either side of the ball who the potential gain decide his sentence. He's playing Brnovich. Didn't the hard graft in the middle of the macaca could come back in the game. You know mind united we were critical as GONNA show up in a real big games. They don't come much bigger than this. He didn't play mid week so so he's he's. He's fresh off blocking the site so he'd be a big shot mentioned from you have a lane how does young Honduras partnership with Benicio Gab. I wonder mental block. Perhaps for into the get over here. They've only beaten you've inches one time in the last thirteen in Syria. I don't think so we look I mean have a whole lot of issues mental and otherwise have had over the last decade but you know I'm not a believer in those statistics. I don't see how it's relevant. What happened eight games ago ten games ago when it was different players? It was a different manager different manager on the on the you've aside as well of course obviously when you're when you ain't that it does feel as if you you're kind of always climbing a mountain. It's a very Sisyphean pursuit if you will but that's add any dog team especially in the first six months months what they're never lacking is mentality so. I don't think that's going to be an issue in issue for them at all. I think give this game this game. I don't think it's going to be won or lost by mind games or whatever this game is going to be won or lost either either tactically if one of these two teams and weirdly Qaddafi who's the one who's perhaps more likely to throw a curve ball and change things up rather than Cold Day. One there or it's going to be won by individuals because you've got some tremendous game changing individuals on the page from from merely Ghannage to China Rinaldo obviously to as as we heard from Craig the likes Consi Louder Martinez whose looked sharp and maybe lukaku offers a different type of challenge stevie could possibly be a game decided by which defense plays better the the defense has been spectacular. They've conceded feed. No there's only one mistakes in my head as could game could be decided by Rinaldo. Yeah I mean the truth is I'm listening in right now. This could be a good thing to play event. Remember l'ennemi vent is no last couple seasons regardless of the monitor players have we sat and watched little about how the moving the ball well decree logic get the feeling that was more event as it never played. GUETTA fought to get resolved. They always get when at my house most. There's one team and there's one. Guy Renaldo who comes up trump scored in both games at the San Sierra last season prediction timeshare. which way do you see this going? I in and to get the job done. You know I think we've seen enough from into suggests that and as I said on a standby this is as good time as any to to catch Venice. I think to get three points. Golden Lost Zero sorry at the wrong country park for that aw just particularly say come on it was nothing to do with. We talked about insurance. There's nothing to be by defendant grip pace in the bowl from massey the touch from Suarez just go finish one of those things it wasn't all over the place yes they had to defend but they were beaten by couple of Grit Gold folks and I think that gives them heartful game because the well I'm GonNa go for an intimate on win and another Markelle Dome for them in the League to who they're going to be a Hatcher Kuni. Event is don't lose. Don't lose so you're saying say saying juice. Hugh had junior bets into we've all event is always come up trumps. You County back against him in a big game blue gabby. You get you get the casting vote here. What's going to happen diplomatically. Sit on the fence here. See something I think into draw points for the first time in the season. I'm going to go with with a high scoring hiring draw to to something like that. Maybe even more I know you wouldn't normally think so. Look at city is a game. It's going to be tight but I think there are enough off individuals out there and you know this is still Saturday's. You've and I could see a game with practically different outcome but along the same lines of what we saw when they played Napoli so basically gobbled says you won't lose that'd be Eddie can place for the girls rose for a high scoring draw the rest of the Syria fixtures on Saturday and Sunday looking like this

Pompeo's Letter Is the Trump Administration's Opening Salvo of Obstruction
"Let's start with what we know about. Mike Pompeo the more and more we're starting to see here. It is is quite clear that we are headed to a a full blown impeachment possibly not just against the president they are stonewalling. They are we now have pompeo subpoenaed for documents Giuliani Subpoena for documents the failure to provide these documents now and this is what the differences with impeachment as opposed to normal proceedings they have written in the context of this subpoena but failure to produce produce under these circumstances will be regarded as evidence of obstruction and will constitute obstruction action in the context of impeachment. They are simply declaring it. Remember this is not this is a political a political process not a criminal or judicial. One and Congress is simply saying you do not provide us this material. It will be a count of obstruction and it will be obstruction it. They could launch impeachment proceedings against Pompeii. Oh they could do it against bill bar and it feels like every day there's more and more the evidence to substantiate an impeachment proceedings against both of them. Here's Palm Peyot two weeks ago two weeks ago now. Maybe this wasn't this Sunday. Oh yeah wait it. Was this Sunday wasn't it. I'm sorry sorry I'm confused because today's Wednesday here he is on this week with Martha. Raddatz on Sunday right this is with Martha got it and here he is. He's completely bewildered about this whole call thing do they call will return to this whistle blower complaint mister secretary the complained involving the president and a phone call with the foreign leader to the director of National Intelligence Inspector General. That's where the complaint was lodged by the whistleblower. The Wall Street Journal is reporting the president trump pressed the president of Ukraine eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani to investigate Joe Biden son. What do you know about those conversations so you just gave me a report report about IC whistle blow compaign none of which I've seen I can tell you about this administration's policies with Ukraine. I remember the previous administration was begged begged by the Ukrainian people to deliver defensive arms so that they can protect themselves from Vladimir Putin and Russia and they gave them blankets. This administration took seriously the responsibility of grain and people. We've provided now on multiple occasions resources so that the Ukrainians can defend themselves. We've worked on that. We Are we're working. We'll see presence Alinsky this week. We want a good relationship with let me read something freedom and independence but you know nothing about this but let me let me let me ask ask you this question. Ukrainian presidential read out of the conference conversation said they discussed quote investigation of corruption cases which inhibited the interaction between between Ukraine and the US say the president tweeted Saturday was perfectly fine and respectful conversation. Do you think it's perfectly fine to ask foreign leader to investigate a political opponent. I think I saw statement from the Ukrainian. Foreign Minister yesterday said there was no pressure applied in the course of the conversation I I I do think I do think if President Biden behaved inappropriately fee was protecting his son and intervened with the Ukrainian leadership in a way that was corrupt. I do think we need to get to the bottom of that. Martha within I I hope that we will. I hope that Vice President Biden engaged in behavior that was appropriate. I hope the American people will come to learn that we've seen Matt Matt have interfered with America cannot have our elections interfered with and if that's what took place there if there was that kind of activity engaged in by Vice President Biden. We need to know Oh. There's no evidence of that yet but if the conversation was perfectly fine as president trump said why not release the transcript or a portion to the public the white hustle have to explain I mean I think we've this was this was it must have been a week a week from last Sunday. There's two weeks ago and there's Mike pompeo seemingly no awareness of this call whatsoever. You didn't even have time to read the whistle blower complaining just heard a report about the whistle missile blower complaint he did though put a clue in there because it wasn't just about Joe Biden in Hunter Biden's corruption. This phone call was not just about that that we should say and we'll we'll discuss the the the lack of corruption that exists there I mean at least in terms of Joe Biden's perspective but they are now pursuing another theory that is Obama Gate or Hillary Gate that the Ukrainians were the ones who actually actually interfered with the election but tried to frame the Russians. This is the stuff that's going on now in the fevers this gateway pundit stuff and there's Mike pompeo trying to push that narrative on ABC television last week. This is what they've been up to but we'll get back to that meantime. Here's Mike Pompeo yesterday in Italy conceding that well actually I was on that phone. Call was on the phone. Call was on the phone call. The phone call was in the context of now. I guess I've been secretary state for coming on a year and a half I know precisely what the American policy with respect to Ukraine remarkably consistent and we will continue to try a to drive those set of outcomes. It's what our team included. Including Ambassador Volker or focused on was taken down the threat that Russia poses there in Ukraine it was about helping the Ukrainians to get graft out corruption outside of their government a- and to help now this new government in the Ukraine build a successful thriving economists what State Department officials that is basically that was his way of. I mean he listened. Easy is smart guy went to Harvard knows how to Filibuster knows how to bury the lead. I was on the phone call but because and then here's a bunch of filler. Essentially that's basically the the story they're going with now. I imagine most people by I now know that the Hunter Biden situation the Joe Biden was over there telling the Ukrainian they get rid of your prosecutor because the prosecutor was not pursuing corruption and there was a hideous amount of corruption there it also happens to be the case that Hunter Biden is not exactly a you know. He's he's sort of the George Bush the family. He's a fell son. Can I right. I just add to this a little bit. I mean so to be really specific about what you're saying. The reason it is exculpatory. I think there's a broader critique here in two ways but the reason it specifically Komo can specific conspiracy theory does not stand is that this energy company is a Russian aligned oligarch who was was gonna who sort of represented the Russian aligned order he got Hunter Biden on with the sort of clear desire to win favor with the Obama Administration and what Biden did was basically fire a prosecutor who was aligned with this guy and not all for the firing right call for the firing so so basically the reason that this specific threat of the story is nonsense. Is that in that specific action. He's contradicting his son's interest to the frankly I mean it's you know it's pretty irrelevant. His son makes a payday either way right. Let the conspiracy theory is exactly backwards. He's going up against what the sun is hired to do. However I mean it's actually sort of an interesting drama where the dad comes in and the wayward son. Is there and he tries to undercut the wayward sons interests or even. It doesn't matter like hey son. You got your payday. We're still going to do this anyways. You know either way we win and I would say that serious. You know I wouldn't take I do think you know structurally when the US talks about corruption other countries even when they're right that is a harbinger of our own interests and energy companies. We want to advocate for so there's there's a broader critique as well as just even hunter getting the job to begin with but that's specific conspiracy is contradicted by all evidence of what happened. The hunter thing is more of a generic type of corruption. That seems to exist everywhere whether it's like you know Chelsea Clinton. I'm getting hired by. NBC or Abby Huntsman for that matter or you know Billy Carter going around and trying to sell off access to advil yeah. Billy Carter was cool though I feel bad for him because he didn't have family sign off. He's just trying to Qaddafi May. Why do you always get all the credit read it. I don't get the sense that hunter necessarily has family sign off too. I think this guy get family sign off from his brother to sorry what's that you don't know that story about the net. It's been a lot of things I did without family sign-off man hey my brother died. What's up sauter her but the trump people the trump people are always going to be angrier at these coastal elites and it's like normal corruption and this kind of nepotism. It's just accepted as the way of things than they are at trump's open and craven corruption and I mean look because they're like well. At least he's not pretending that he doesn't have mud on him right but the the bottom line is is that this type of corruption exists in every facet of society. I'm not making apologies for it but I mean you know you grow up in you know we. I I went to go see concerts in high school because my girlfriend's dad was on the Civic Center Commission. You know it's like Whoa Whoa Whoa. I think you just showed yourself here. They might need to take the rest of the week off Sam. I gotcha flow deep corruption but I I mean of course this is true and of course the stakes of the the cranium energy business are deeper than basically hunter gets the job promises yeah. I'll get dad well. He shows up at the loss he also got. MBNA lobbying thing right at the same time as dad was pushing through the bankruptcy bill he was on the board of something the board of the Amtrak Amtrak which is basically a trade expert bro Brothers wives. I just think that come into an Amtrak board way would family members everywhere and some are incentivized to do this stuff and helped out more more than others but nevertheless meanwhile as Mike Pompeo heads it's to Rome apparently Seb Gorka gets on the plane with him because someone has to go now understand the here's the point one of the reasons why impeachment was so necessary in which I was saying for months. Was that there you you can't just basically run out the clock and it -ssume that there's just GonNa be this vacuum that remains there while all all this is going on. It's quite clear the trump administration bill bar Mike pompeo have been actively involved involved in trying to not only undercut the Muller investigation. Remember the molar investigation to over. They're undercutting the entire

Tripoli threat: a warlords bid to take Libya
"Today. History. Occasion in the political history of Libya today, we are told that Gadhafi is that it's been eight years since. Mm-hmm. Mortgage offie was deposed as leader of Libya and killed the country has been in turmoil ever since a u n backed so-called unity government holds a fragile power in the capital of Tripoli. Now, the country is in very real danger of descending into an all out civil war general Khalifa half tar is leading his rebel troops from the eastern part of the country to the capital twenty one people are reported to have been killed. General half. Tar is a former field marshal in Colonel Gadhafi's army who helped him seize power in nineteen sixty nine but also helped remove him more than forty years later calls for a ceasefire to evacuate civilians have so far and ignored. The warlord who controls the east of the country has pushed initially south. Roger McShane is are Middle East editor taking most of the southern part of the country, and is now pushing up towards Tripoli and has launched an offensive on the capital, which is controlled by a UN back government of national unity and right now, there's lots of fighting around the outskirts of the city not much fighting in the city, lots of finding around the disused airport. So you say there is this u n backed government is is it fully in control of Libya. No, it's not even really in control of the capital relies for security on militias and around Tripoli. It doesn't really provide any services to the people of Tripoli, and it certainly doesn't control the rest of the country. And what about flea tar would what are his objectives? Well, he thinks he's the only person in Libya who can unify and stabilize the country he has launched offensives against. Islamists and jihadists in cities like Benghazi, and he pushed further south in order to really stabilize that area. Which had been overrun with folks in the people smuggling trade in the drug smuggling trade and now he's pushing the Tripoli under the same pretenses. Of course, Tripoli is run by a UN back government, which sort of belies his intentions. How do you mean have has a habit of painting anyone who is against him as a terrorist Jihadist as an extremist? That's not quite the case. That's certainly not the case with the UN back government in Tripoli and the militias in and around Tripoli, and certainly the militias in MS rutta would not consider themselves extremists, which you really have is just a country that is full of armed groups full of militias each fighting for their own little patch of land and wealth. How did general have come to be in this position to to think of himself as the one man to unite the country? After as a pretty interesting background. He was a general under Qaddafi fill out with Qaddafi eventually moved to America and worked with the CIA for time in several tempts to overthrow Qaddafi. When the revolution broke out in two thousand eleven against Utah fee. He came back to help the rebels to overthrow him. And then he sort of retreated for while in two thousand fourteen as a country sort of falling back into civil conflict. He came back and took over what he called the Libyan national army, and sort of painting himself as just the one person who could really unite the country. And so why is he made this this big aggressive move? Now, if he's felt that way for all that time that's a really good question. And that's what everyone is trying to figure out. I mean, he moved south, and he moves south pretty easily took over most of the south pretty easily so that probably emboldened him, but this comes out of really odd time this offensive on Tripoli because you're the UN secretary general actually in. Tripoli as the offensive was launched. The secretary general was trying to organize a peace conference for the middle of this month. So it's a bit of weird timing, but it's sort of women people see us through the final bet for half. This is his final push that after this sort of diplomacy takes over. So this is his last chance to sort of really settle things militarily, and do you think it will work? What are the odds you think he can take Tripoli at the rate? He's going I think it'd be very tough. There was a thought that perhaps he can sort of by off militias and around Tripoli. But what we've seen actually is a lot of the militias are actually uniting you have the militias from his rutta coming in saying, they will defend the capital, and they're very powerful. I mean, if nothing else this is gonna be a long and bloody campaign if it continues, and how has the the international community responded to this. So the international community has come together and called for a stop to the fighting. But to this point they've been rather disunited. I mean, you have a number of parties that are behind have to our countries like Egypt countries. Like the UAE France sells them weapons Russia's well. And for different reasons, I mean, the UA and Egypt are anti Islamist, and they see Dr as an anti-islamic force France has oil interests in Libya that they think have doors best place to protect and and Russia sees a fellow third -tarian, and then you have other countries like America, like Italy like Britain. These are all countries that helped overthrow Qaddafi held back the rebels overthrew Qaddafi, and they have put their efforts behind the UN back government in Tripoli. I mean, really living is a bit of a forgotten country after the overthrow Qaddafi. Everyone just sort of backed off and forgot about it. In fact, Barack Obama has said that was one of the biggest mistakes of his presidency was forgetting about Libya, but it seems that there there is some level of American involvement there and there. Or even reports now of US troops being pulled out. I mean, how how involved is America America is involved in as much as it sees a civic counter terrorism interests in Libya, so it's helped with the fight against Islamic state in Libya, and other Jihadist groups. And you also have European powers? You'll quite interested in the I'm both for counterterrorism reasons. But also to stop the migrant-smuggling that occurs across the Mediterranean. So you have countries that are involved, but there's sort of all after their own interest in the not really working together to sort of help the u n back government in Tripoli, take hold.
