"Yeah but they're coming. They're coming down on the bench. Chose is one of those those. I don't know. I don't know who are big inspiration was but i felt like she was kind of that. Those those new ronda rousey move missile all the fight when she was like nine or twelve or something i know she went to the gym and she is just one of those women. I think hanson's one of those two things. He's better than kate hansen. But just one of those there were just. This is what they wanted to do ever since they were like a young teenager twenty two. She looked amazing tonight. Yeah just blown away. I knew how good rookie and was. And that was the show showcased vice. Oh that was awesome but exciting for an blanchfield. And yeah can't wait. She's she's actually. She's what what was trying to say. Who macy barbara was. I think his arab lands. Macy bar was kind of just wanna build up like this. You know she's going to be the john jones. John jones of flyweight division. But i think she's more on that route than than ufc typing. No isn't giving her that. Same kind of hype. And i think she deserves it rather than maybe we'll say there's a few twenty five right now. That are making bannon fiero. She's a little bit older. But casey o.'neil twenty-three about stern twenty four and i get aaron blanchfield so the future's bright one twenty five cal pennington for mine not just because oh that whole fight flew under the radar but then just hearing the stories of her getting covert and being on a freaking respirator. Things i had no idea that she was battling and then to come back in you know. Have that grimy performance against Pans out who has been on a nice run that that was was an impressive performance and then hearing sort of the back story of how she got to that fight and i was flying under the radar anyways but sieber cal go in there and perform the way that she did super impressed with her so she would be my six player award winner. So there you go we got some Some compelling questions. We'll take a few meaning we try to so. I will just point out. One comment. That i saw from mr ed k. Who said aka you make pigs stab bat again. And you're being relegated one letter. Don't wanna let her out. Acknowledge this person i. I'm kidding i love. i love all the commentators. I love all the commenters you can. You can today or at a k. But that's what's at stake now. How how likely is rutan's next. Fight against the winner of dan hooker versus nasrat hack passed or will he face another unranked opponent. Now ak you. And i are going to have this discussion onto the next one tomorrow and i have for this and i'm going to save that for then but sean what do you think. Do you think sarokin will get the winner by by the way. We don't even know if dan hookers gonna make it's that bite at this point at that gives visa issues a very public right now. Hopefully monday fingers crossed can get vegas by thursday s. We have rough fight week for that man. But would you throw sarokin the winner of hooker and hack or would you. Would you go a different direction after that performance tonight. If it's up to me. I liked that i liked that fight. I think actually arm and that was one thing. I even forgot to mention when i was talking about arms. He sort of did the legwork early right like he sort of planted those seeds coming into this fight so he already had it set up to where dan's like legitimately kind of upset at him and like actually wants to fight him which that's the biggest hurdle of all when you get to these really deep divisions is convincing ranked guy to give you the shot when you're when you're not there when you're sort of on that periphery of the division. So i would love that. I think dan hooker has has had a really crazy slate of top contender. Fights really tough tough fights against the best guys in the division and he is due for the very similar. Like anthony smith esq. Hey come back to the back of the line. Work your way back up by a couple of these up and comers and then we'll give you another top five guy like to me if he beats nazaret even if he loses like i would absolutely love to to see that fight feels like a proper escalation for armand to me while not really messing with dan's trajectories. Well actually like the casey I i hope it's a hooker fight. I hope This is all the assumption hooker gets in gets in the country fine and makes wait fine or whatever that's another thing but Yeah Hopes in bites. I had of him. that's all. yeah. I think we're i think we're done with the building him up. I think this this is a big highlight. they needed. You know they gotta yeah. It's the last little push before. He's he's gone. He's running at this point to finish got it and iago's was had three five winning streak heading into the fight to so this again. This next cashman. This next question might seem kind of crazy. But i don't know is jake paul versus yoel. Romero apostle match should now be considering both showtime. Just ak your. Yeah you hells. Yeah you put you put that on the poster and it sells itself. Oh my god you put it on his that forty four year old honest glistening. That's the that's it sold. Imagine facing off going. Oh god promos. Go give me like a table. Read where. It's ariel in the middle in jake paul and eulogised grunting and saying one word answers the entire time earn him dead and the is like i'm so in on that that'll get five million views tomorrow down respect to jake. Paul jake take that fight that you might see my only issue with the question is it shouldn't be considering the matchup that we should now be hoping for because then resounding yes this is this is what is should be next or no. I mean look. There's a lot of good matchups for for jake paul. His team has him and his team have done a really good job of picking their opponents of far. I do think romero might be a little bit of a bridge too far. But i also don't i honestly i don't i wouldn't romera would kill him. This is where we are with no experience. Now jason fight right. He could versus that cuban boxing who knows i just i i just thought question was like oh let me think about this house. It up there in the universe. Let's let's be responsible for this. This possible opponent. That could put the fear of god into j just in the pre man like all of us have been. I would imagine that media days with yoel romero. Then dude is the most intimidating human being to speak to ever. It's just crazy. We talked to professional cage fighters for a living. And i think. I've never been as scared as i just talked to you over barrel such an intimidating dude. I'm like i'm thank god. This is a scrum. 'cause i i don't know if i can handle one on one i'll talk to one hundred without feeling me. Want to see the enersen fight. I wanna see the anderson. Jake paul fight. That's the pure semi. But sean you sold me area on the middle those to the table top right right and you all just staring a hole through the crazy is the whole time lucky be he knocks out your well and then maybe you know worrying but i'll has to join in you know. Oh well my fellow cuban. Yeah my fellow human omega on the. He can't do the fight but he can be the ballet. You know he can be right there. You know i mean we can just go full circus and do mas- vidal romero tag team. They switched every round. First round around. Romero we're getting them both leader logan. Yeah and the books yes. We should absolutely be considering that fight. Be more comments hybrid impact. Eighty davis is boring. You don't know him. A mixed for a reason. As case like i say it is the mixing of the martial arts philby mixes those martial arts and does it very effectively so yes. Hybrid impact eighty three. I'm what i don't like to go as far as say if you don't appreciate a or you don't know emma may i always feel. It's a little strong. But i would say you're you're maybe have may have somewhat myopic view of at least as far as what you find entertaining and again we all love ramsbotham stuff..

"I didn't think davis would stand as much as he did with riyal but but on him. So i don't know if i'm ready to call romero like completely old. Just feel like he's the same guy you know what i mean what. What are your thoughts on. That await we. Why don't we hear from this gentleman. Oh let's hear from fellow bald. Brethren channel shoddy joining us. This is a delight. This is a welcome surprise. Sean how are you my friend and your thoughts on. Casey's two part question there if you heard it all of doing great guys. Glad to join sorry for the delay. But yeah casey. I mean that's i think that's a great question. Both of them and it's hard to say because in terms of old you'll you'll romera to me. This just felt like yoel romero right. Like i didn't feel like there was any difference tonight with how he fought. How he's fought. A lot of fights is what he does. He's a slow starter. It's very difficult for him. To get out of second gear until he gets into that third round fourth round fifth round. That's why we the legend of third brown. You'll romero is so fierce. Right is because it kind of takes into this far to get into it and you could feel it in that third round. He was starting to feel the urgency a little more. And i believe him when he says he didn't know that it was going to be five rounds. I mean that he was fighting like someone who felt like. He had three more rounds to go to arouse ago in regards to the other question. You're one hundred percent right casey. I've sort of thought that from the start. I would agree with mike. You're the matchmaking. On this just i don't know what bella toward was thinking other than i understand the idea of like let's obviously people wanna see yo l. Let's rush him into some sort of fight Any fight and fills a former u. of c. Guys been abell for for a lot longer than i think. We even realized at this point they were saying like six years on the broadcast which feels crazy but okay great like how is that how we're all getting way too old..

"Essentially put some respect on davis his name that was a great performance and someone replied to me. He just fought a forty four year. Old fat middleweight. Who hasn't fought since he was forty. Two like totally discrediting bill. Deger's first of all. When is anyone ever called your romero fat. That is ran. You kidding me fat. Your romero has never been used in the same sentence unless you drop ph in their thriving wardrobe that he that he brings the table queen. Come to seize. that's about it. Yeah yeah that's like. The main activity is a problem with like instead of celebrating. One's person's performance the instinct. The first inclination is to find a way to crap on both guys. And i'll never understand that. I mean unless it's a truly terrible fight where both guys really didn't put in their best effort which i think we rarely see the bell taurean. Uc level. i. I'll never understand why we can't just give someone credit. Why does it have to be instead of like instead of this. How like what was so great about this guy's win. It's always the emphasis on what what was so bad about guys loss. You know while we're gonna. Why did that guy lose on. I don't understand that mentality and it's like if that's how you approach fights like this i would say take a break from. Fema if you can and then come back maybe you're just burnt out. Maybe just too many fights. Yeah i filled efforts. We celebrate that. I didn't think you'll romero looks terrible again. I thought he ran into a really good opponent. Big bigger opponent younger opponent really skilled opponent. He had his moments in the second round. He lost the fight or out. On the romero's we've four one eighty five if he still make it look great. I celebrate davis and davis again like we talked about in the preview. Show no matter what happened tonight. He still gonna be headlining cards every time he fights. There's options for him. We got the like corey. Anderson loses to ryan bater phil. Corey anderson is interesting even baiter loses. You can run now and back. Hopefully it's more exciting. Fights davis is going to have some options romero title hopes. Probably not really there. But he's got options as well so there you go. Ramirez debuts in the books phil davis wins again. he's are back in the wind com. Let's talk about. Oh knockout artist. I'll go ahead before we we. Actually we have Shaheen's but the jump bonzo. Gimme moment or quick. He's jumping got some cameras stuff but before we get off this main event two questions coming into this i was wondering is when is romero going to be old was tonight's performance old romero and the for making mistake booking this fight at me from the get go. I thought this five in the get go with a high risk maneuver from the promotional standpoint. Do you mean you saw the fans fans wanna romero to win so promotional standpoint. You would think know you set up romero and to me this fight. When it was booked a there was such a in my opinion a very low probability. That romero was gonna beat davis tonight. So what do you guys think by those two questions. I mean i thought the matchmaking was a little questionable especially if you're bringing in your romero and you know throwing them in the grand prix putting in there with rumbold like that's the fight. Everybody wanted to see. I belcher just kind of caved in to one. Everybody wanted and made that fight. But yeah i. I wasn't a big fan of the matchup. Like if if you're a romero fan. I don't i think you were like excited to see him. Fight again because you haven't seen him fights in seattle sonya fight. But i think you're probably scratching had like this is not a great fight in terms of the old thing i don't know like i just. It's hard he he got such a late start at. I feel like we've seen the same guy for so many fights like i mentioned the preview. Show like this had romero wiedeman feelings to me. Where davis would win the first two rounds and then romero would have to finish in the third. But i thought davis would have a higher fight. I iq if you will. And that's exactly what he did. So the fight kind of played out the way that i thought would. I thought it'd be a little more grindley. I didn't think davis would stand as much as he did with riyal but but on him. So i don't know if i'm ready to call romero like completely old. Just feel like he's the same guy you know what i mean what. What are your thoughts on. Wait wait wait what. Why don't we hear from this gentleman. Oh let's hear from fellow bald. Brethren channel shoddy joining us. This is a delight. this is a a welcome surprise. Sean how are you my friend and your thoughts on. Casey's two part question there if you heard it all of doing great guys. Glad to join sorry for the delay. But yeah casey. I mean that's i think that's a great question. Both of them and it's hard to say because in terms of old you'll you'll romera to me. This just felt like yoel romero right. Like i didn't feel like there was any difference tonight with how he fought. How he's fought. A lot of fights is what he does. He's a slow starter. It's very difficult for him. To get out of second gear until he gets into that third round fourth round fifth round. That's why we the legend of third brown. You'll romero is so fierce. Right is because it kind of takes into this far to get into it and you could feel it in that. Third round was starting to feel the urgency a little more and i believe him when he says he didn't know that it was going to be five rounds. I mean that he was fighting like someone who felt like. He had three more rounds to go to arouse ago in regards to the other question. You're one hundred percent right. I've sort of thought that from the start. I would agree with mike. You're the matchmaking. On this just i don't know what bella toward was thinking other than i understand the idea of like let's obviously people wanna see yo l. Let's rush him into some sort of fight any fight and fills a form of seat belt or for a lot longer than i think. We even realized at this point they were saying like six years on the broadcast which feels crazy but okay great like how is that how we're all getting way too old. This is not cool over the you have see. We have people competing moore born in the two thousands like. I'm just not ready for whatever feeling old. Every saturday is going to be yet. But i think you're right. Phil davis is one of those guys. Who like he is perennial under. Perennially underrated to a extreme degree simply. Because he's boring right like people. Don't really wanna tune in to watch phil davis because you kind of know what you're going to get. But the dude wins for the most part of the majority of fights and he wisdom and kinda the same way. You really kinda new which you're gonna get into when you book someone like you'll who's a slow starter. Who can have these very unexciting fights until they are exciting. All of a sudden book him against somebody like still like is run back ten times. I think maybe one of them would be exciting but the other nine are probably going to be pretty boring. Grinding like what we saw today. I don't know if you're trying to introduce yo l to your brand new audience. Not the way right like you both came up against somebody he's just gonna smash and then all of a sudden you can point to this crazy monster looking human being and just look at what we got rather than than something like we got tonight. I think they absolutely dropped the ball. When it comes to booking. Also i will just add. It's time we probably start respecting. Phil davis mortensen general. Like i think this is broader conversation but even among our own team for the rankings that we have the global rankings..

So just that way to british by together and all the others have good partners. Well we've had neil and ken on the podcast before neal's had a good run. This is really improved. Maurici cans had some good results as well. I remember. i said i briefly mentioned australia was a match that day that i watched was it was luke and johnny against jaime and it was james claiming bruno time. Yeah they look jolly was a set up and they think maybe even open the second until suddenly jamie of angry like superman charging and comment of the match. Because he really didn't want to lose to do to them. You know because damian was already established like the double starring uk and these two good flares of the young twenty. Three twenty two. There is no way you wanted to lucid. outfits was nice to see him raise his game like a double notch in order to be able to beat them which it wasn't great much. It was great. He was the difference in the end. That's what i taught on. He was amazing. But we're gonna talk about your philosophy in a while but which philosophy and all the guys know. You've taught him how to play. Nobles how trickier does does matches. Do they. Turn into a chess match where everybody knows what everybody's doing. Yeah because i. I know each other because i think what's nice this flares at their culture. It's to support each other's and a go watch each other so i they know all the play. Plus they know the specificity a- of it which i don't want to share with everybody here but they know like one that type of serve at such a as percentage wise better to return there and it's better this and that plays better and when you have the first volley against the bag the best place to go there so they all these things and the twitter themself so when they play charter. It's inner one team wants to surprise the one and that will be mostly the teams have been on. Their dog. wants to show a different look. Are they know that it will play both the same and will come down to execution mental office and the best thing to execute will win so it's always interesting for me to watch while they play. All debate is the same in the us on their pressure. Winds are will one like bring a lot of barriers that the would knows they will do enough. Edge said since it's great. Can i say detention. They're not the tension beforehand. And it's i'm sure it's just gets better and better as the rounds go on but would you say you've seven players. Now you're taking charge of. Do you have a favorite child Although the rich all the same. I hope to put like a system in place of more like a wisey going derek. He should have seen me so unfortunately the only one out towards nobody suggests something different. I go by ranking so right. Now let's i. I'll have them practice at the one o'clock this afternoon. But then i will go to joe salisbury because of his ranking neal's kooky than jamie murray than song solid gonna go by drinking. And unless someone gives me a better option that's so unsettling for a match to play at the same time we're gonna go with the ranking. Of course i can use it. But my judgments one team just win. A six to defer set than the other team is middle of the third set. I mean just ship quickly. But the overall i just followed a ranking for both prices and mentions so that makes life easier for everybody. There's a rule in place on. That's just the way you operate. So it's good to have those clear boundaries group which is very nice of them so like oh joe. Marie is aware of it. You will try to get this practice court as early as possible but on the chat and guys i'm practicing at one six neal's kooky once they join his practice which he does he will go and quickly book like a two or three. Pm it put it on the charts. Johnny romera wants me to join in on that one in three while i will go to courts before his court seal book at five. Then you put it on sons when he tried to stretch it out and sometimes it's not possible but at least there's a very genuine cooperation between them to lead charter Use my services when it's possible. Nice very nice and do you ever work with any singles guys. Not not really. Because it does diminish Work on that saddam consultant at the initial an center to provide some feedback. Serve footwork or whatever whatever things that could be in some on the woman's side or demand side but the owen the act as a coach at all and also the singles. Flares are more demanding. That you'll never see seven singles bars spreading like what coach and stuff is so and i would have to travel more which i don't want any more. Since of a child. I used to travel like done months a year. Non travelling like five months said the four months that i drop.

Yeah right now. I get why you're saying testicles. On only testicles. Yes exactly yeah. Let's to the four food groups. The my up i yeah. You're up that gap all right. So i'm being a little bit disingenuous here because i could have this could have been easily Republicans suck to philip pointing it out that there has been an epidemic of former officials. Who are going on television and appearing in sort of big time media opining on the afghanistan story in being identified by their titles and not by their current occupation. I and and so one of the worst offenders has been jay johnson who was the homeland security secretary under obama. You might remember. He actually wants to punish played kind of a key role in the russia gate started. But that's a long long time ago. He was all over the news about afghanistan. let's just look at some of the clips. Because what's what's notable about. This is that he went on basically every cable channel and not one of them did the right thing so mad if we could just see each one of those in succession to here. He is listening to the prior discussion. i iran there. His identification former secretary romans thirty people in the situation room in the biden administration. Many of whom. I serve within the obama administration. I remember what it's like Four or five years ago to Be in the hot seat. In the midst of a crisis it does seem however obvious that our government did not anticipate the situation in kabul at the international airport and the mass exodus. That would be attempted.

Let's we should have left open base areas on face the nation cbs winter. We leaving if not now. When if i were advising the president i probably would have recommended that we keep in place in country. A highly trained force of about twenty five hundred or so for counterterrorism purposes The president i know understands the stakes He's heard before eight years is vice president and has decided Along with the support of most americans apparently that it is simply a time to get out so we can move onto the next one member areas. He is he's saying let's let's do. Let's leave twenty five hundred special forces in in country here is on. Cbs this morning. As though we had to rush to get the six thousand in we did not anticipate in the president acknowledges we did not anticipate the speed with which the afghan government would collapse alabama given it.

Encourage you to make that choice. You can also give us a five star review and our boy double checking those out for you. We are joined now. I believe by jacquard former navy. Seal stike sniper and task unit commander. Who has served in both afghanistan and iraq. Jack we appreciate you joining us and all your service and i know this has been a tough week for many people both in uniform and out of uniform. I want to start with this question for you. When you saw the report that we had turned over the names of americans and american allies in afghanistan to the taliban your reaction was what well was a Another a long list of errors that is going to impact those on the front lines And not so much. Those from temperature controlled offices in the pentagon or in in and around washington dc We just handed over the names of us citizens. Maybe some people that helped us over the last twenty years to the enemy that we've been engaged with on the battlefield for those twenty years and then we're asking them permission if it's okay to get those people out. They get to decide whether they can get let these people through to an airport as we try to evacuate them In a way that is obviously a disaster And once again it's those front line. You ones each choose. E six is a ones. Oh two's those junior level officers and enlisted. that are out there in the meat grinder. Making the best of a chaotic violent dynamic fluid situation just like they have for the last twenty years so I'd like to say that. I was surprised by that Unfortunately looking at the last twenty years as my guide it's It is not that shocking. It's just heartbreaking devastating Unfortunate jackets bach. I i want to know what you think we. The united states government military could do to try to enhance the security situation on the ground. Because all we've really heard from the biden administration is essentially were reliant on the taliban and it's in their interest it's in the talibans interest to prevent this from happening again. It's already happened once. Obviously everyone hearing that is is thinking themselves. Well that's a horrible situation to be in some good makes us feel good. Do you see a way to at least make that situation a little bit. Less high risk for the americans and sl holders and others who are either trying to or have gotten into kabul international airport. Yes we saw that same. Sentiments echoed by the centcom commander. Yesterday talking about it being in the talibans best interest to let these people through to put people through looks through security screenings. But if you've seen any of these pictures like we all have coming in. I mean you're seeing these people crowding the gauge. You're seeing them standing in sewage. You're seeing the baby's handed over the walls to the marines. That are manning those manning those barriers in just chaos down there and even when we had secure a very robust security measures in place at a lot of our our bases afghanistan and in iraq. You would see these cars. Come in you would see people come in. And that's a tough thing to do. Even for our soldiers to check out who had an fast on that truck truck coming in it. Looks like that suspension is a little heavy Do i do. I not what's going. I mean it's tough for us who have a protocol in place are always in place who are trained up And now we're relying on the taliban our enemy to not let other terrorist groups warlords somebody looking to take a shot to blow something up since they'd be able to get a little Street cred by saying we we. We kicked the americans out of afghanistan Just like they did with the soviets and with With british way before that so it's There are definitely things we can do. I mean look at how much we have invested in our military the world war two up to today And look at what we're doing. Look at who. We are relying on Once again it's out rifleman. Is that marine down. They're holding that 'em for That is standing guard standing the watch holding the line once again with all those assets that american military has its disposal not in country. Airpower out of their intelligence apparatus dismantled Allowing the enemy to get right up. Close no standoff between frontline soldier and the person who might be wearing that s in a crazy dynamic situation so there are definitely things that should be done both tactically and strategically but unfortunately it looks like we are just focused on august. Thirty first date and trying to scramble out of there as fast as we possibly can. It's a. It's a dark day for america. There's no doubt about that jack question for you. We talked yesterday and it seems like. There's a clarity here that we are going to leave some americans behind in afghanistan. What do you think the chances are that we end up with some form of hostage alike situation after our troops are already off the ground and out of the country and we may have to send people back in as you assess the situation on the ground right now. Yeah it's a good question and it's maybe maybe it does fall back to. Who's best interest. Is it to have the united states either in or out. of that country So with the taliban in charge running the country Different warring factions in the mix there terrorist organizations in the mix there Who benefited from holding onto the americans and a lot. Not eventually allowing them. They passage out of the country. Or how can they spin this into advantageous public relations campaign which they have proven themselves to be much better at than our public affairs officers in the military so It certainly a high probability that they could be used as bargaining chips for something else that the taliban or one of these warring factions are terrorist. Group wants Or it's also possible that they just leave the country of the other means Later so it's a but it's certainly a possibility that they could be taken hostage be used as bargaining chips going forward to the point being. They should never be in that position. To begin with once they shouldn't have been as everything started to deteriorate Hippies noncombatant evacuation plans and gone in figuring out where everybody was brought them to a strategically advantageous point. Not giving that those points up and take in consolidating our forces that rule but was were in that position Now it's time to not levi's americans behind that's the last thing we can do. Salvage some vestige of our dignity to crush the enemy get all our citizens out and you know then reevaluate and hold people accountable Both in the military and bureaucrats elected officials Who is has been like a slow motion train wreck. I want to jump on that jack. Jack about the accountability question. Though i think this is this is critical. You know we've had friends like a former army ranger Tenth mountain sean. Parnell on to talk about the boots versus the suits paradigm here that this was in about what was done tactically on the ground during the war. We're talking about now. This was about decisions from the top down and they've been catastrophic in recent weeks recent months we've all seen that speaking of jacquard former navy seal and author of the terminal list series which you should check out an excellent excellent series of novels. The devils hand is his latest. Jack here is general milley. I think this was this was in june.

"It's a hard question. Because i like a lot of the franchises but i don't like all of the films within the franchise that's the problem. So you know. I love talking about like thirteenth or something for texas chainsaw. I love the first one. But you know the second one fee and you know it's more tongue-in-cheek and and it's more over the top you know. Just i don't wanna say slapstick but just goofy type like not the humor that i like and then i just didn't like nightmare street. And i like the the franchise. But i don't like the second movie like the third movie gratin. I like west. Griffin's new nightmare that's about it right you know. And i liked the halloween series but nothing against four or five and six daniel harris. I love danielle. We love danielle but it was just different. And you know jamie lee wasn't in them and it was just you know it's not consistent. I used to like the saw franchise. But that's kind of worn itself out. And then the weder wants sucked balls so really for me. The only Franchise that i can. A i think is my favorite. Would have to be the scream franchise. I love everyone of good movies. Good like those movies. And i guess if i would have to say you know i mean the first three dead films you know night dawn and day and then it kind of just. I don't know some of them after that are okay but Land landed the land is good. Yeah so i actually like what is it. It's not survival. The other one word the guys kind of document. And what's going on with this camera okay. i forget the name of it but i'll survive on it and really look care for and you didn't like this recent one. That's on netflix. But there was one real recent one that you said was not good. Where do they go to. They try to get this money out of the vault or something like that. That has nothing to do with romera films. Okay so okay. I wasn't sure if that did or not. Okay okay so yeah. It's it's a tough question to answer. Because i like a lot of the franchises. But like you said. I don't like some of the films within the franchise so i guess maybe my favorite style. I don't even know. If i could. I i i love night as you know. I'm sure my listeners. Your entire about tasim franchise. I saw him. Yeah i love. They're really good. There's more sci fi and horror. But yeah i like to have franchise. And i actually like the friday the thirteenth franchise. I mean it's it's it gets goofy takes manhattan but Consistent with the gore and the in the atmosphere and you know the kind of you know later on in the movies and kind of make fun of themselves. And so i think as a franchise. I'd say screaming friday thirteenth. But and i would say the ramiro dead films and boy. I don't know i would say halloween. 'cause i like h two o. Resurrection was l- too but But i like the most recent one. I'm looking forward to home and kills. So i would say the halloween franchise where jamie lease involved danielle. Here's we love danielle. But it just. I mean that's how it started with her halloween franchise that rubs armed. It was no no. I'm not a fan of the i just. I saw the second one. The first one and i was like it's okay. I expecting something really really really bad. But it's not it's all right. It's just it's not as gas women. There was against that rubs on because we want to show john. Yeah so anyway. So hopefully they'd have questions. Yeah yeah okay. And our last question is from mike albuquerque new mexico albuquerque. All right yes sir.

We now confront a moment. In which some of the key features of that environment remained with the kabul and and host of radical groups still functioning in the country. Finally to wrap up this long and complicated history we we. We know eleven comes in two thousand one in the houston-based shortly after Announces it is taking out the and and of course we're here twenty years later what you know about the talibans resiliency over this time how it managed to divide its time and be able to return a crucial question. The mistake from the outside in washington and elsewhere was that the americans had vanquished the toubon that they were defeated that the struggle was over but in practice the toubon merely scattered the leadership went to pakistan where it found safe haven and there was. Anc story is is really quite striking because they advantaged of course twenty years to sustain this moment with extraordinarily ideological coherence. Although the united states managed to decimate the ranks along with nato partners again and again on the battlefield they continue to replenish the ranks. I think in part because in combating the taliban the united states also engaged in the killing of numerous civilians and i think that dynamic of harming and killing civilian populations was a crucial factor in the growth of the movement christian leadership kept us eye on the prize which was to restore what they call their islamic coniston. So if we go back. Today's nhl foundation method on ninety four when they claim to be the kind of robinhood. Yeah do xavier. we're gonna we're gonna bring justice They continued that that campaign in the countryside they always exception of being a state in the waiting and so the events of last week's shown but the waning of african state power. And i think the strength of the swiss kitchen of a thanh movement that is ideologically. Knock appealing to all afghans. It speak to a small group but the original power. The use of violence and increasingly backing are all factors. That came together. And so what should we expect. Now i think that i think it's it's an open question. And the really hinges upon their use of force and the international community's capacity to temper that use of force to avoid what could be a horrible bloodshed Kind of catalyzed by the body visions of very clumsy withdrawal while the dark warnings of history. It seems about the taliban. It's methods its effectiveness. And it's past relationship with extremist groups that is rubber crews professor of history at stanford university professor.

So the taliban is back in charge in afghanistan twenty years after being deposed by us-led invasion. How has the group survived who want to take a minute for a reminder on the talibans funding with robin farzad host of public. Radio's full disclosure. Robin great idea on your part because we we remember you know when the war first started. Afghanistan is the world's largest producer of opium and we saw those beautiful fields of red poppies when the war was first launched. How is the opium trade connected to the taliban bleeding. The poppy as they call it. If you're a farmer if you're mula smuggler in between cities it's kinda hard. It's really hard in this economy to resist the siren call of its income robin to get an estimated annual export value of about three billion dollars. Who could be on the low end you know the opium. Poppy supplies illicit heroin. The world over so many players in take a cut along the way it starts with the farmer Cutting a ten percent vague to government. There's police border guards. Airport officials all told it's estimated that the talibans annual share of the illicit drug economy ranges anywhere from one hundred million to four hundred billion. It's like the mafia they're taking their cut and the drug trade came up in the group's first press conference today. The taliban spokesperson assured the world afghanistan will not be used to produce narcotics and he called on the international community to help develop alternative crops. Kind of saying we won't do that if you help us do something else. But put that aside a mineral extraction mining these are also big business in afghanistan. How much revenue does this generate for. The taliban mining mining is worth at least an estimated billion dollars. I mean infrastructure being the most significant impediment to reaching and exploiting valuable minerals. This is wide. Keep an eye on china which has been able to exploit such cash-poor resource rich countries. Regardless of regime you look at its work across sub saharan africa. And the upshot is you can quickly roll out. Bridges roads ports to dig out minds and to own that equity in the earth. Lithium which is essential for the switch to electric vehicles across the planet is a big opportunity here and i have no doubt the chinese will want in. Yup we're reminded. The taliban was actually founded in pakistan. But it now entrenched in afghanistan gets donations from foreign sources who who's donating according to the afghanistan center for research and policy studies various islamic charities across the persian gulf of kicked in upward of two hundred million annually specifically the taliban writ large. The extent of of afghanistan's a dependency striking In two thousand nineteen the world bank estimated that development aid was equivalent to twenty two percent of gross national income. I mean that's down from a half say ten years prior to that but it's still quite a codependency and they look kind of scruffy but this means signal. Did they pay people. I mean this is how they've they've stayed alive. How much is the group worth. I don't know of goldman sachs bankers are going to parachute in romera taleban. Ipo from from what it's worth.

"The taliban are advancing across afghanistan as u s and allied forces are leaving the country right so when american troops withdrew from bug. Romera failed last week. It was a clear indication that the us is very close to a full departure. The taliban are capitalizing on that by moving into rural areas with the hope of eventually capturing the capital of kabul. npr's had covers afghanistan and joins us. Now good morning. Good morning know so. It sounds like events are really moving quickly on the ground. Can you update us. Yes full so just over the weekend. The tobon overran much of the northeastern province of button and dozens of afghan troops. They have fled to neighboring tajikistan. Our reporter shed footage of people rushing into an airplane in the provincial capital he said they were officials scrambling to escape to kabul. The afghan capital is seen still is the safest place in the country. It's the most heavily defended and although these comes in a context lila the taliban moving faster than anybody really expected. Since may they've captured about a quarter of the country. They now hold one of the largest dams then. Nearly afganistan tiny border with china. They hold one border crossing. They're trying to save more. And the insurgents share videos themselves. Seizing afghan army equipment abandoned by fleeing forces. It's largely us funded staff and its upcoming battles. But it's also just as importantly helped to create this perception that they're unstoppable. That's important and you can see that because morale is collapsing particularly among afghan forces in the north. And it's it's really striking off gone watches because these will wants the places that fought the hardest against the taliban during the civil war in the ninety s now you mentioned officials scrambling to get to kabul. What's the mood like in the capital. Surreal life continues as normal. Those traffic jams shops aruban. There's also thousands of people rushing to apply for possible it's produce in kabul hauge.

She says of contracts are being left to stop. they don't even have bread. She says because of corrupt and inept government so. We heard anger at the afghan government. How do people feel about the us government which has largely withdrawn its forces at this point. It's complicated many afghans. Feel the americans bought nothing but hardship and they're happy to see them go others like urban women in particular who fought for their rights over the past three decades feel betrayed. They feel like america's abandoning them to the taliban. And you could hear that. In responses they had to july fourth press conference with president biden who bristled when reporters asked him but afganistan he wanted to talk about happy things and human rights. activists responded on twitter with this as an afghan woman.

"So there's been an adaptation of from a buick eight in the works for a while. Now it's very much stuck in development. Hell here's a brief rundown of the rumor mill in two thousand and five. Jorge romero was slated to direct and adaptation written by jonathan sh h and richard chizmar in two thousand and seven romera was replaced by tobe hooper. i don't know i don't do. My research. production stalled in two thousand and nine due to budgeting issues more. Recently thomas jane of the two thousand and seven missed adaptation announced a new effort entirely at adapting buick. Eight which as of august twenty twenty has tapped. Jim mackel to direct. This is not potentially great news as everything that mac will has ever directed has scored under ninety percent on rotten tomatoes his most recent being the shadow of the moon which scored a pretty dismal. Forty eight on metacritic and fifty nine percent on rotten tomatoes. Could this be the product. Turn it all around. Time will tell chris what do you think. What would you like to see a buick eight adaptation. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say i would not like to see an adaptation of this at all. oh okay. I think that as a narrative it works as a book But i don't think that the idea of having this be an open ended mystery that is never explained would work as well as an infant. Yeah i mean the closest we've gotten to that in popular culture is the inception ending which made popular cultural Just insufferable for like a decade. So what's avoid that. Yeah and to with the inception endings. They're still a satisfying narrative. Clothes run in that. Leonardo dicaprio's character. It didn't matter to him whether he was in the real world or not. That's the whole point of him leaving behind the top. He doesn't care anymore but there is no satisfaction. And that's the point in. Yeah yeah and i feel like a lot of general audiences would not connect with that well. I've vibe with that. I was thinking it would be one of those movies that i think that in a lot of ways stephen king's adaptations are going to be a little bit higher quality just in from the production standpoint because of recent developments in special effects. You know i could see this being a really beautiful adaptation if done in the style of kind of it part one where you have like a lot of these kind of environmental shots you get you get a sense for this small community now that being said i do you kind of convinced me so i'd like to pitch a different adaptation so we can end the segment on a high note. Sure i think that this would make an excellent comic series all my god. Yeah with the right artist that would be yeah kind of in the style of old school horror comics because it has some of that camp written into it already with the concept. And i think that you could do some really some really good work. Visualizing some of these segments especially you know all of these dissection elements all of the stuff around characters like freaking out. Yeah i would if. I had to pick an artist for that. I would pick kevin o'neill who did what is kevin o'neill work done league of extraordinary gentlemen how he worked on that with alan moore. And he's done. A lot of love crafting esque monsters. very good monster design excellent. See here's i'm of two minds about this. The more i think about it on one hand. I would be afraid that an adaptation of this would try to give a satisfying explanation for the buick which it does not need but then again something like fourteen. Eight was not a one adaptation but was still really good. I'm always afraid though that we're going to end up with one too. Many not great adaptations. And it's going to end the stephen king renaissance that we're in right now. If the stephen king adaptations could survive maximum overdrive. They can survive anything. You know what that is an optimistic take to the segment on. Let's bring it over in honor of your show chris. this is a new segment. We are using to replace battle. The books were calling it. The stephen king fight club. So this is where we talk about how we would fight this monster or this this evil presence or or whatever. It is week by week because it would not be fair of me. Chris to ask you whether this was better than the tar tower would not be right. So you're an expert on fighting monsters. How would you go about this. Honestly i would do pretty much with the guys in the book did. Maybe i would keep it in a little. Bit more of an isolated area so people wouldn't be drawn to it but the monsters and plants and everything that comes out does not mesh well with our world so they pretty much die upon contact with our air in a matter of minutes right so if you keep it in one again. This is one of the things. I actually really appreciate about. This book is that they approached the problem in a very clinical way and in a very smart way. They had ropes around. They had people watching the car. When the light quake started. go off. They'd have at least two people on guard just in case something new popped out and people were always cautious. And they weren't glib and flippant with the whole with the car itself. Yeah i by that. I think it's hard because you know. Stephen king for as much as people rag on his endings. I think this one had a decent one. And i i almost this is a personal problem. I just wish that they hadn't come up with the right answer. You know what i mean like. They understood jess enough about this car that we get to see it starting to age. If that's.

"Dave is an attorney turned historical fiction writer author of multiple amazon bestsellers and boston globe bestsellers including his latest. Which is probably headed in that direction. I think romera roman artifacts in america which is a great fiction story but also is kind of wrapped around this history or this kind of forbidden history. Kinda thing that. There's a lot of evidence. Archaeological findings other historical evidence. Highly suggestive of romans being in america in second century. So this is kind of right up my recent interest in this ancient history. I'm of course interested in where that takes us. In terms of consciousness and spirituality in some of these other things. But i was really really impressed with the with dave's work particularly what he brings as an an attorney. Who's used to kind of sorting through evidence. Translate as sorting through bullshit to get to the truth so i just thought it was a great opportunity and i really enjoyed the bullet which the book by the way you know.
