Saddam hussein titan and tyrant the tells the story of the former iraqi president from his upbringing on the banks of the tv's river to twenty four years as president of iraq and his eventual trial for crimes against humanity. What makes these. Podcasts really interesting is that it's not based just on interviews and archive sound but rather the entire episode is told in. First person by actor retails events from saddam's point of view. Joanne melody free. Us is the executive producer of podcasts. At al jazeera spoke with b. Playlist tell us more about the episode. And how the series came to be. The concept itself came from our podcast team in arabic. They have a similar series called romeo's and sitting around in the room with a colleague of mine. Who's on about this great podcast and all these different characters they have. And oh my god we got the actor. Had a thresh and i said who who the characters who you talking about. And he starts these names and anna here saddam hussein written. Why are we doing this in english. Why aren't we serving the english audience. Stories people from the region and especially with el-jazeera in our contacts on our access and just really the wealth of knowledge that we have in our network thought it was a great opportunity to to bring these stories to life. You know to to re engage the audience and it was tricky to tell a story you know. How do you get into the head of someone. Who's no longer here so you can ask him. Direct questions is of course a lot of recorded interviews that we went through literature inspect people who covered the wars had been in iraq for many years needed. Something else in so Over my my computer and just threw it out there into the room and as my calling. Swipe does anyone know anyone who duke saddam hussein and sure enough. A colleague karim stood up and said well yes. I know his former personal translator so sure where is he. Oh he's just request the way. He works for arabic translator but right. Let's go there. That's going to have a chat with him. And extraordinary sitting there listening to him talking about this man with admiration and talking about how saddam hussein was just in his injustice.

I none of us sitting there trying to defend saddam but this this concept of justin his injustice just really struck me at how divisive characterized how people loathed. And you know admired him you know. Saddam hussein who's ultimately convicted and hanged in the massacre is the mass murder of one hundred and forty eight civilians on also known for his prussian of kurdish people tend to the transit and i said but not to be rude.

Need For Companion - burst 2

"To forehead. I can't go back. Need for companion. Don't start thinking or just talking about what you're going to do before you think about the other person who you say you must run the information through but ask yourself or did you have to do such for someone's approval companion his one of a pair things intended to complement or match each other. I just can't believe you have to make someone else more important with your decision. One all you must do is just make the choice to change if they try to talk you out of it what it knows right. Then there's a problem with them to what if your soul needs compassion leading your ego bypass to let it be settled. Then you realize you'll have to deal with the situation anyway. It does not need to be room just delayed. How do you respond. Control what the reaction's will be and the ants. No one can control what may or may not come. It is a divine intervention in operation for the results. If you're still not messing the hurt within yourself. The independence range into an era of solidarity within you and surroundings most would not think you're strong enough for now but you focus is being in personal touch of the heart and soul within a relationship. Is it not being accepted for whom you are. Can you make changes to identify or even yet resembled yourself with someone in the past. They had entertained. But is it your companion making a model of you. Are you the complimentary when you when just his friends around mentioning his pass with them and not what is in your now today saddam. don't you beg for. don't you sell yourself short by pursuing someone that doesn't want to be with you it is written. If it scott's will it will be just as soon as peration. Don't think it's a good to be okay when it isn big yourself when you can identify was a situation because if you and that person a part then you'll be stuck in a run a finding you all over again but it is companion or is it were they even with you in the past present and not trying to leave your side in the future saying that it's okay to break down and cry laugh or even redevelop yourself not leaving your side helping you change for best and then you should ask yourself but do you really care. And they thought or stated it was the companion.

"This morning. Our kickoff guest We're very excited to welcome an entrepreneur speaker life coach consultant and a former educator of fifteen or so years Vernon right. welcome to the morning. Kickoff is so good to happier will good morning right from the great state of texas. But you know what. Here's what's really interesting to realize into. Think about what was a conference right that that originally started here in texas to see the worldwide impact and for me to be a part of this collective dialogue while just absolutely while so so privileged and so honored to be with you all this morning and You know just ready to go ahead and pour into the people. And i want to say this real quick isn't i don't want to break any rules. Andrew is it okay for me to drop a protest this early is it okay Hang on let me choose it okay. And we check. I think we're good taking all right. You'll take you take the hit for the team. Absolutely all right. Let mcglade dropped approach. Have for you guys here real quick. There is a word that really comes to mind for me in. It's the word convergence may say that one more time so if you're watching this right now welcome so glad to be with you all this morning. That word is convergence and you know talk about not only pedagogy but talk about tech and to talk about. Seal and talk about all of these other things you know what really we're faced with right now and and i say faced with really we're embarking on this great opportunity. Take a step back. Look through the lens of convergence. Where do all of these things come together. And just why did i mention that before. Andrew the word. Wow just absolutely while i love wow right i like glenn virgin says well you know it makes you think of like you know when we were chatting before we even started. We were talking about how you know decisions you make and everything you do has to be contextualised right. You have to understand the effects something. We'll have i think of when i think of convergence then it's kind of like their many different things out in the atmosphere but we can find those points where they come together where we can get like a you know a little bit greater value than than what something might have a loan and one of the things we discussed. Was this word as well value. What is valuable. What makes something valuable when we think about the challenges were facing as educators Wh-what where what. What kind of should we be looking for what what what to us should make something valuable. It's not just scarcity. You know because we know there's no shortage of knowledge and always being generated So that can't be how we define value has to be something more based on how effective or useful it is right. Yeah and you know great topic there and great question really for all of us to to think about to look through and so i will share this So grateful for the clients that i've worked with in my private coaching. One on one. And the school districts that i've done consulting with and i will share this with you. All one of the things that i share with them is really talking about exactly what you have mentioned. Which is this term value. And so that tends to be a little nebulous sometimes right. It tends to be a little vague. Like what is value. Vernon what is value andrew. In simply i say this and i share this value is when we help someone else achieve. What is important to them. Say that one more time value is when we help someone else achieve what is important to them because when we hope someone else achieve what is important to them. Guess what we have done where the we have helped them in the beginning of the process the middle of the process or the end of the process or maybe all the way through the process we have made an impact. And let me tell you something folks. We all want change right. We want substantive and sustained change. Those are the two s.'s. If we don't make an impact ever really done what we need to do to change Yeah i can imagine you know. There's the sense that sharing something Creates more of something right. I loan you a book. We don't actually have to make two copies of the book you've got your you can read it and i can read it By helping someone. You're just expanding you're just adding positively right Is that kind of when you look for things that that can sustain. Things that can have an impact How're you personally measuring that value. Yeah in so really for me and let me say this real quick again. What a wonderful conference Just thank you and major prostitute an idea because this really brings us to very much so in line andrew. I don't know how you're inside. Saddam my head andrew. But you're doing a great job of it thank you. That's why they got me here. Is that whether you got you here. All right well. I appreciate it man because it really brings up another word. And that's this concept of community and when we when i ask people through the various speaking engagements that i've done in a different clients that i've worked with again At the district level and those one on one in small groups. I've asked him what is community mean to you. And typically what will we naturally think about community especially pre pandemic. We would think that community is really those that are geographically around us right. Those that live in our neighborhood. Or maybe in our city or town but really community as a broader definition in community really. Is this concept of those that we choose really engage and interact with around shared values. So as we go through this conference this weekend really through the whole month of march really looking at the replays and and just really diving into it over and over right. I want you to think about this. Who are we in community with whoever we invited into our communities because that is a game changer once we connect with people in community. Guess what happens. We start to find out what's important to someone else and as we start to interact and we start to learn about people's stories. Guess what happens. We get the opportunity to invite people into our stories and to find out what's important to us once we have that foundation. Yes what happens. We are able to say to ourselves. This is what's valuable to this person. And once we find out what's valuable to someone and what something is is that is truly meaningful to them. Then we are able to add clarity to this concept of what is quote unquote of value.

"So with me today. All the way from way across the pond is johnny ball. He is with the forget me not charity. It is designed to end the silent suffering of dementia caregivers mostly in the uk. But i'm sure we can expand a little bit someday. So thanks for joining me johnny. So your mom took care of your dad for many years tell me about your dad and your caregiving journey. Yes so my dad. Got fronted dimension when i was full team. Mac i mean we didn't know initially kinda very subtle onset sir some stuff assigns. Some sort of an ocd behavior and habits ejaculated needs to have sort of started coming in and we. We weren't really sure what is meant. Probably when i was seventeen means fooling diagnosed and definitely before at the age tom shanklin saddam was now twenty years ago so he had yes hunts and and then he had to mention until two years ago when he passed away and and the majority of that time he lived at home. My mum and it was just because my sister. Self we guns university on my other system rather Back ceremony on singlehandedly. Careful for him. Full probably nolan probably fifteen years until it's long time i mean as nearly law tougher laws on sarah and tools variants He was to be introspective scare him. You're amazing awesome. But even then i mean did doesn't end full primary care as you know grown same every single day. She still you know she can go on holiday. She just went down and look at the data. even she wasn't enough to all the time she loves him. Most of the to worry. Also vistas right in terms of you always concerned a well-being the and worrying if it comes to bowl of marrying a happy state of mind and that's all still there. Yeah so that was. Conical happens is really back about seeing my mum's dedication. How tough was even though. She handled it incredibly news so stoic. Yeah it was. That serve inspired this inside this expedition. Maturity stop so. How's she doing now. she's doing well. Yeah crazy agree raw. She's she goes now. I'd say sure exactly now so that it was To two hundred years ago died. Since then i guess she suggested completely to new life. Ace i suppose the even though she's a stephanie very different way of living and in some sense of relief. I suppose it's still transitions dara. It's interesting because you still have guilt. Like i know especially now with the holidays coming. There's just times when i think you know. I tried so hard with my mom and like christmas. Two thousand nineteen. Our city. park is full of christmas. Trees that are decorated with different organizations or businesses. Some of them just decorate 'em however they want some decorate them with the theme like one of them was basically a pizza christmas tree so all. The decorations looked like slices of pepperoni slices of pizza. Which is kind of not super christmas. But it was very cute. I took her there because it was bright. It was outside it. You know i thought. Oh she'll love this and it was just like she was like clueless and it was and she was honoring. I think she was having a bad day. And it's hard knowing. That was her last christmas. We did have a really good lunch on the twenty third of december and then everything went to hell after that. So there's interestingly enough you still have like these guilt feelings. Like i should have done more could have done more and it takes a while to get through those i think so. It's i'm i'm finding that with myself and other caregivers that are in my position. So if you guys are experiencing that it's pretty normal which is frustrating. But there it is so. I read on your website that the alzheimer's society which is pretty much the mirror. Image of the alzheimer's association here in the states found that ninety percent caregivers experienced feelings of stress and anxiety weekly more like daily probably at least sixty percent of them struggle to talk about the impact of caregiving on their lives because of feelings of guilt. It's like. I can't complain about what. I'm going through because my loved. One has a tea or alzheimer's or whatever and so how can caregivers balance their needs and the needs of their loved ones. In your opinion like you know have we. Have you thought that one through as you launch charity. I think the as mansell. How things i i think the fittest into that. It's okay to feel the way you feel. i think. Give a lot of as you just explained guilt and extreme sense of gt Which means the facebook does because the caring for fest often before themselves. That i think is important for the mental health of the unification which ben immediately impacts the wellbeing of the patient. They need to care for themselves as well. A member. the average duty of air to themselves as much as they have achieved care to the person benefitting asta and i think inaccessible and really letting mass inside. You know that that's true.

About updating the council on a large scale quote the led panel will consume less battery offer higher contrast and possibly faster response time when compared to switch his current liquid crystal display said co founder of display consultant the ds the latest model will also come with four k ultra high definition graphics. When paired with tv's they said that could intensify a longstanding complaint of developers who have struggled with the difference in resolution between hand-held and tv modes and now face a bigger gap between the two that can intensify long cynically. The nudist plays resolution. Mir's the current switch and switch life but is an upgrade from the switches. Six point two inch and lights five point five inch size if the consuls housing remains unchanged the new switches likely sport a thinner basil parris lilly. How do you unpack this. would you be excited for. Would you buy. Do you believe it. So i have three switches in my house already. My kids you're buying this no matter. What no yeah. I'm getting it absolutely. This is the one that i've been waiting for. I think the biggest thing that i took out of this. It's not only as an led screen but the fact that you're because of the power consumption is going to be less. You're going to get more battery life. That's obviously been a big thing that we've wanted with the switch in portable mode on thing which they don't talk about in this that i'm hopeful to see what whenever we we get the unveil. This is better joy cons potentially You know probably thinner. Basil's noted mentioned mentioned it in there as well. The fourcade thing is interesting. It's clearly the logical step to go when it's going to be in tv mode so speak. Yeah i guess. I really don't care when it comes nintendo with four k And i know there's obviously been some speculation with developer support on this. How are if it is going to be going from. Seven twenty pm scaling. All the way up to four k is that gonna put just make an extra workload for developers. Like i said to me if it stated tonight ep but it had better battery life better a bigger screen. That's enough i. I would be happy with that to me. The switch ninety percent of the time. I'm playing it in portable mode anyway. So i'm not overly concerned with there being four k in dock mode and playing that way so i mean i think a lot of this is true but it'll be interesting to see what what the truth looks like.

Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in

Nick Cannon Tests Positive For Coronavirus

"We know that. Nick cannon tested positive for covid and missed. I believe the first half of the mass singer recording so he will not be hosting the masked singer season five at the start. You will be joining it at some point but he will not be there at the start. Is it surprising that in his stead. They didn't put craig robinson. And they went with dc. Nash right. I mean because that's the thing is that oh well part of the massing family in the universe. Whatever we're calling it. We're gonna yeah. He's right there. We're going to bring him in. It's gonna be you know. The perfect fit the fact familiar with the set familiar with the set up familiar with can from you know what i mean like. There's a level of familiarity that would totally make sense so the fact that they didn't make that decision. Yeah i think is maybe a little bit of the canary in coal about how they feel about his performance. But if i don't know. I mean look let's say let's say it comes back for a season two one. Do you think they would replace him or to do you think they should replace him. No i think ultimately it's something to get used to with craig. I think that. I mean craig clearly is more of a singer than a dancer. He's clearly had moments in last couple of offices where he say he say. I had the time of my life. He saying when everyone was dancing. The last performance dancing so like. He's clearly a better singer. He's not a dancer but also we got to decide. Do we want to host to be doing splits in being able to like you know break dancing. What are we trying. What does the hosts half to be a good dancer. Because i don't think that's the case. So i think ultimately craig will fit in better and better because i also think that you know nick cannon to this for four seasons and i thought he was dog but now i kind of like realizing that. He's actually better than i. Give him credit for after looking at other work. So i don't think that it's over for him and i don't think they're going to go out of their way to get someone new. I think craig has job security. I think so too honestly for all of them give them another shot right like if the orcas willing to give the show and other shot. Yeah give them another shots. Whenever like again. I love craig robinson. So you're not going to get a no from me. Their dog all right. So do you want to talk about now. In order the people who went out from like sixth all the way to. I think that's a good idea. Okay so we'll talk about so super six is we're at if there's any performances that stood out to you can talk about them if there's any comments you have. We can talk about them there. Okay sorry i think my brain just like completely zoned out. Did you say so. We're we're for six or do you want to start at the very very beginning owned. We've talked about everyone on portal super six right so we don't need to relitigate everything from the beginning. I wanna thank you. But i want to look up. Who is eliminated early. Just so i remember. Oh yeah never mind. I know i know. I used to bill mcknight. I my god. I can't like yeah. This cast list like looks that i don't know if it does. I don't know i just. I was a cast than massing. Here's the thing. So masked singer season four happened in the preseason. We got a question of. Do you think it's going to be a bigger celebrity. Cast than before. Because of the pandemic and i said heck yeah. I said it's going be the biggest thing they've ever done. And ultimately that was not to be the case it was definitely a lower calibre was the weakest cast of the four seasons as far as notoriety goes but then you look at mass dancer they nailed it. I don't want to spoil people on placements on anything for the massacre uk. But i will tell you that. Neil was on the masked singer uk. Why can't we get neo on the master. Us that's my. You're so not happy at. They came home sir he was on the messenger. Uk closer to the us. Why was he in the uk. That's my question. I know but this is like a thing in the uk or something like that. There's a reason those whatever. I don't know all right so the thing the thing is though so i'm looking at season four. For example i would say that season four of the masked singer and the mass dancer are probably somewhat on par. Although it's interesting people like brian mcknight and jordin sparks. I would love to have seen on the masked singer and others like a party. That's frustrated that they were on the masked singer or dancer unsmashed singer. But i mean brian mcknight like literally said i wouldn't have done the massingir because everybody would have known who. I was a little bit of a kind of like seal vibes. You know what. I mean. So i i. I respect that decision and jordin sparks. It felt very much like this is a purposeful decision that i'm making to a dance version of the show because i'm sure she was approached for massing or previously so but anyway okay all right. Yeah you wanna go in order so the super six. The hammerhead gets eliminated. Doen't oh what did you think of rapid fire rapid fire. Oh that's when they just hit them with all the questions right back. I don't know twenty seconds or something like that to ask as many questions as possible. I didn't so i just felt like it was a whirlwind and then they would ask something dumb like. Do you miss your family like no. I don't miss my family. what do you. What kind of question is that. It's a waste of a question. If these people are playing twenty questions they would make terrible choices for the first like this. Is your chance to narrow down between the people that an even even even if you ask a question and their responses like a little bit cagey or playful. At least you asked a smart question. Yeah the one about the missing. You're like do you miss your kids know exactly. No one is going to say. Even if they don't miss their kids no one is going to say no. But how does that help you narrow it down does it. Is it because because the thing is is that i can't remember exactly who it was four but i'm pretty sure they knew whether or not the person had kids. Because that's another thing is that maybe you're trying to clarify whether or not they have kids at all fine. But yeah as such as saddam. This should saddam. The only good thing that came out of it was the fact. That when craig robinson when i and then the little fire pyrotechnics off in the back. Also song word up how to song. Rapid fire did not have a song demand that their segment next time has a song rep firm. That's something in the background. But i didn't have any I don't know like pit bull or something. You need the pit bull song. The disney of like a fire song. Ivo feel like all pit bulls songs are about fire. All my god mars. Small bowel bump bump bump bump like rapid fireball. Something like that. I don't

Stop with the Cam Newton nonsense

"Season officially upon us. We've got a lot of lot of stories a lot of rumors lot of things floating out there that may not make people happy. It's the long dark Patriots podcast. We're going to talk about everything and anything related to the Patriots particularly their quarterback situation, of course always rate review subscribe all that good stuff regarding Patriots podcast with Nick cattles nickel be back for another episode later on this week. I'm John zanis filling in and the story du jour or do week or whatever you want to say here appears to be a Cam Newton wage. His name is resurfacing and the Patriots quarterback starch and Greg. I can't I can't think of Anything worse to happen right now if you're a Patriots fan right now and and all you want is New Hope. Okay. This is a new hope the possibilities are endless blank canvas money draft picks Capital. Theoretically the Patriots could do a lot of different things some of which could be very exciting and interesting and I can't think of one thing that would just throw a wet blanket all over over all over that any more than bringing back Cam Newton. Yeah John, it's it's weird. I I started hearing the chatter on all the Sports Talk radio station a week and I'm like what the hell is going on? Like it's basically like Cam Newton's become it's similar to some of the debates that you hear in politics like where they just like Stoke fear in people to generate interest in their shows and things like that. It's like, ooh now Cam Newton's the boogeyman that like who they might be bringing Cam Newton back just to get people to react like people people need to settle down and this is why you suck. Had to be SJ this why you listen to this podcast because you know things like how last offseason when everybody was going nuts about Saddam was a guy in Cherry stem is going to be this and Jerry system is going to be that and he's going to be the next guy. You know, what did I tell you from January of last year over a year ago. I told you that he was not be the starter that there was going to be some sort of Veteran competition. So, you know, welcome to coming here where you where you get well informed you don't have to worry about the hysteria. You just get straight facts and and what's going on. So here's where we are. We Cam Newton and this is something that I've been talking about since the end of his Patriots season, which is it's always been a possibly that Cam Newton could come back here. It all depends on what happens with the market and who they end up with the quarterback and this and that but for anyone to suggest the Cam Newton month Is going to be re-signed being the definite number one. That's what we want starter here next year. That's not going to happen. It just it just isn't in and here's why. We've also sort of touched on this but just to sort of reinforce the point. I think what happened this past season is the Patriots realized and and look we've talked about it that there wasn't really a plan back to check understood that there weren't enough chairs for the quarterbacks and somebody was going to be left could have been Jameis Winston could have been Cam Newton could have been Andy Dalton could have been anybody. It happened to be Cam Newton and they said they'd make it work. It did not work and what I think John what happened was and actually I know this happened the Patriots realized after the Cam Newton experiment that not every quarterback can work in the system and that's not to say Cam Newton still not capable of playing good football. I think that he is do I think it could be better with a better Supporting Cast absolutely I do and do I think God Part of the problem last year. Yes, but at its basis in this scheme, you need a quarterback who sees the totality of what's going on in the field. You need someone who's going to win before the snap. You need somebody who's going to see something on the defense say that's this is about to be a bad play here. We're checking to this and Cam Newton outside of you know, he might he might have alerted a few plays here and there but not even close to what we've seen in and look I'm not going to compare him to Tom Brady. Nobody's going to be Tom Brady, but The Baseline Jimmy Garoppolo would have been a lot better. Jarrett Stidham probably would have been a lot better in terms of what he could even when Jarrett Stidham got in John. We saw things like Palm Coast him would change things that the line that's the Baseline in this offense. And that's where it starts. The number one tenant in this offense is don't run any bad place when the quarterback is incapable of doing that for whatever reason that's that's strike. Number one strike. Number two is understanding after the snap. What's going to happen? What is the defense going to do? What is that going to mean in in reaction time? Like if I see the if I see the free safety all of a sudden rotate from too deep to single single life safety. I should know like that who's going to be open, but great. Let me ask you real quick. Cuz everything you're saying makes perfect sense, but did you need a year of did the Patriots need a year of Cam Newton to know that he wasn't that guy? Is it did you think he was that guy walking through the door? Is there anybody really smart Personnel people out there who thought? Oh can't might be able to adapt to this Patriots dial offense. It didn't seem sensible fit. Anyway. This is a guy who's always had accuracy problems who who plays a totally different style of ball. I mean, I don't know why you would have brought him in the first place. If your idea was to offer a patriot style offense

Tesla buys Bitcoin: Elon Musk's plunge into BTC

"I twenty four hours we've had since loss on. Look the biggest thing really to speak has been the involvement of tesla in tribe. Of course been talking tweeting. A i guess talking and tweeting Quite a bit about the Dosage pretty much about dodge With hashtag bitcoin as his twitter description. Of what you want to call it now. I'm market is currently sitting just shy of one point four trillion dollars. This is huge. It's huge for all of us. All of us that have been around for a wall. He's in for those of you. That are relatively new to this by. It's huge for you as well. This is the reason why she age. You've got it's six one white half a dozen the other whether he's the wealthiest man in the world next to jeff basil's. I couldn't give to hurts about that. The fact is you've got a rebel entrepreneur who is willing to put himself on the law. He sold pipe off. I think he's a hundred ten million and what he did was invested in the tesla and spice x and barred money inside on couches. Now this is sort of man that is not in anything for the money. This is a man who has a drive. he has a purpose. And after that i he is. He's kind of just want say something. You've never seen before. But certainly the level of entrepreneurship. I haven't seen before in my been rating books and being involved with a lot sorts of stuff. Since i was about fifteen years old when i read zig ziglar top was offered to me by my very first mental. And it's it's quite. It's quite an extraordinary thing as far as long consent to how somebody who is so different and so different. I guess it's not just about money. The guy puts it all on the line. He he he i mean. He smoked a joint. With joe rogan. I mean the guy. He's a rug. He's is mac villian. He does what he wants. He is the person the creek di really represents. All sorry hayes to his now become the person that he's a spokesperson he is. know bang. And it wasn't just because he bought does all. He talked diet and put hashtag bitcoin. It was because now. The tesla i look. Let's be honest about this Point five billion dollars of bitcoin. That's the mall when it comes to capital but if you dig a little bit deeper and you start rain in between the law ends of how long he's been talking about cryptocurrency and how he's involved with non himself i assure you i'm sure he's involved wrestling. But with tesla sought on one unravel that a little bit now show Some studies going to accept bitcoin. And if you can see what lamborghini days when you know in two thousand and seventeen where land beginning saw accept. Bitcoin is pilot for the motor vehicles. That mccain win lamb by you know. There's always named saddam about lamborghinis. Lamborghini didn't back bitcoin that he's accepted. You're going on mosque now. Who has not accepted it. But he hasn't accepted yet but he's backed it by going into now. There will be a time. I am fairly sure of where any touchstone believe. I haven't read everything about it. I caught the busy day where they'll accept bitcoin and at time you gotta think about. What is the community. Give the community gives back to those at help the community gripe and i think it's an absolute bloody moss strike because as this new you know parade on the finance and whatnot comes around. I forget the taxi high tells them what not hide airbnb only different places the So try to fought against Progressional spurs part of this put. The banks don't like bitcoin and it's because the bank's can saving obviously threat to to their empire. You're gonna moscow's out there doing his thing and there's a lot a big millionaires billionaires that have been created three bitcoin cryptocurrency if he's going to accept bitcoin as a method of pilot. Then i think it's an absolute buddy. Moss destroyed for him to put one point five billion in to tuzla in in bitcoin. I'm and maybe he'll go more possible trends. I'm sure he certainly thinking about on the dan if he's not but that one point five billion he's already put in would probably you know what he'll pick up if he accepts.

Automatic Summarization

"My name is martin luther before and i'm a vc student at the university from saddam. Main research is focused on natural language processing and information retrieval. And i'm especially interested in how we can learn from humans and human cognition to improve our ai models before that. I did my master's degree in artificial intelligence at my bachelor's degree in mystic so liked to take the knowledge i also have from the back roads and the light microbes research everything. I've done related to natural language processing carries with it a sort of computer science bias towards it. I don't have your background in linguistics. What advantages does that give you in your approaches to natural language processing. It's quite interesting. We've seen the developments. From the early days. I would say wehrley Quite prominence when we wanted to model language greedy looks into specific linguistic structures. And at least things then we went into an era. Our people throw that away basically no linguistics of war Data only we only want to learn patterns from data and always see a bit of shift back again so people try to incorporate knowledge from linguistics into models with the idea that they come maybe learn everything from data per se or if we have named with knowledge that might gives an advantage if we decide like these are models that could work well for this task for example is a pretty exciting thing to see that we go back in the knowledge of marie slogan definitely there have been a couple of people who have taken a pretty provocative ver- extreme point of view on this and is ibm. Has this famous quote. Yes i believe Frederick djelic said every time i fire a linguist the performance of the speech recognizer goes up so i imagine that was a deliberately provocative statement to make in your experience. How have these communities actually overlapped in the community or p. community specifically we want to model language and that's basically what you also want to do linguistics. You want to model language and you want to understand language. You may not want to light produce than which so much linguists rather observe whereas from nlp perspective you might as well to produce but also understand that right. So i think as linguist. You have certain intuitions about language with everyone might have. That seem very obvious to you as linguists that other people might not find so obvious such as negation can be a hard province so for me seems very obvious because this is a trend See gwyn stakes but like from computer science perspective. Never thought about this. You might wonder like why does my mom before well these types of includes or questions or whatever you might not realize that it was about negation or something. That is yet wasn't really that long ago when people still seriously considered that we could solve negation with just a couple of handcrafted rules Exactly like there's more to that right. I think in order to understand what would work well or licensing doesn't work well yet. List acknowledged really comes in handy. Will your paper the caught. My attention is titled what makes a good summary reconsidering the focus of automatic. Summer ization now automatic. Summer is kind of interesting that by hearing it. Even if you've never heard of this fuel before. You kind of intuitively know what it's all about yet. There's still some open questions practically speaking you know. What does it mean to do some reservation. Could you perhaps give us a survey or overview of the various techniques is a great question. Maybe not so clear which is one of the reasons why we started to write this paper. But that said i can give an overview first of what is often perceived as the way to do it in the community. so i'm talking about texts. Summarize -ation right because Of video summer ization for example with for decoration. You often do. thank you. Take any input documents. Texts article for example news article or a bunch of news articles media articles. And you want to kind of get the gist out of this input and right leg few sentence summary about it. That is the majority of work that is done now. How is this done with anything. We've seen a little progress. They're so it started off with a unsupervised Graph based model such as text. Frank relax wrangler. Basically people make a graph of the input documents and then kind of see. What are the most important sentences Extract those now with the rise of neuro models. We see that there is much To sequence approaches. That people used first night with our anez. We see transformers. And bird and bird dyke auto spoken up in a community. And then you also asked about the evaluation. So how often do it is served few forms of evaluation so you have flake the firm and often people use a roche with basically check for lexical. So have your label. Summary like the one you know. It should be any kind of check out. Many words are in common with summary. I produced there. How many acronyms to make it more precise and then there's also some new metrics such as like bird scores in one that doesn't measure lexical similarity with router semantics clarity right because in this lexical similarity approach. If you have a word is kind of the same word as in the summary. That was the label. But it's not the same word out and you don't want that so you run our to measure semantic similarity so that's another type of scoring functions people use and then another way is with human evaluation though you would ask. People questions like which of these summaries is more fluent or which one more informative or which one has the best coverage these questions

Many Tigray refugees entering Sudan with nothing but their clothes: UNHCR

"Nearly sixty thousand people. From ethiopia's volatile tigray region have now crossed the border to remote southeastern sudan optimal than two months of fighting many with just the clothes on their backs. The emergency has created a massive protection challenge for the un refugee agency in sudan. Unhcr which is doing everything. It can't provide what they need as spokesperson. Xl bishop tells us news is daniel johnson. I've just been on a mission to the east. Where i have looked at the response in relation to the refugee influx from ideo. Peel right. so we're going to talk about the refugee influx which comes after two and a half months of fighting water. The numbers now that you're seeing seeking shelter over the border of sudan from ethiopia's northern region of tigray so we have about fifty eight thousand at europeans. Which are actually entered into saddam at the moment the influx is between two to five hundred people daily coming across the border. They're coming in through to border areas Diet and lewke that number coming over two to five hundred a day. That's a lot less than it was but you suggesting that perhaps people are just too far away from the border to get to safety across the border now yes the first influx which resources came from the villages on the western side of tigray at the moment the people which we are seeing of people who have walked for some time what we see is that maybe we have an indication that the western side of being emptied and the people seeking shelter not come from further away. What are they telling you what are their needs. So i mean. Most of the people have Actually entered sudan without anything so they come with their clothes but many many few coming with no possessions at what we hear is that many come without documentation which is also something which we are trying to address the first influx came in relation to direct fighting the influx which we have now. The people are telling us that it's more in relation to the fact that they don't feel safe in tigray not so much because of the fighting because they are from the gray area. So do you have an idea. About what the level of fighting is in tigray today. What is your access you know we are working on the sudan side and our office in addis. Ababa is actually trying to gain access now. What we are doing is trying to relocate them. From the border areas further inland. We have two camps at the moment which are some distance from the border where border conflict should not be a problem. Okay but i'm just concerned that there's no access to hundreds of thousands potentially of people on the other side of the border of sudan with. He need essential food. Water and other services reported rising malnutrition from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and they cited bureaucratic obstacles in in getting access to people who need it so. What's the latest you have on tensely getting help to these people in need as we are sitting here on the sudan side we are focusing on the influx which has come across the border from at the opium and we also have offices in the opium which are dealing with the people who have moved inside the tigray area but also inside at your more at large. So let's talk about two and a half months into this conflict. In the northern region of tigrayan ethiopia. You're trying to relocate tens of thousands potentially of refugees because you've got camps further inland in sudan. Could you may be explain what the difficulties are first of all. It's always a challenge to actually find. Land land something which is owned here by individuals but also by government and we have been working together with the government of sudan. We go a piece of land which is old campsite which is called ambre kuba what we have placed about twenty thousand refugees at the moment here. We have within. I would say short span in able to at least all stem in attempts but also ensure water health and food the second site which we have because kuba has been saturated is tenable. it's further way than kouba and it takes about twelve to fourteen sometimes. Sixteen hours to actually have the buses leaving the border area arriving at the campsite. Which therefore makes it arrivals in the middle of the night now. The campsite is located in a very remote area where we don't have any electricity and we are concerned that actually offloading these amounts of people in the middle of the night with no lights is something of a concern to us. We are trying to do this now. In such a way that we have larger area rub whole set up where we host people until we have the song light out again and then we give them the tents which have been set up for them. Sure and final. Question to you mr bishop. We are two and a half months into this conflict refugees telling you that. They are hopeful. Being able to return amid this fighting between two grants and the marines in the northern region of ethiopia. Refugees are still hopeful. But i think that what we see Is that people are here for longer term and why we have had some people expressing hopes to return they would like to return to the tigray. Which was there some three months ago not to the new situation which stay. I've heard the bald.

"Now richard. Moss's photographic practice has resulted in some of the most arresting images of recent years as a conceptual documentary photographer. He draws on a range of esoteric photographic media to catch a so much more than meets the eye. Monaco's much. Larry spoke to richard to find out more about his unique and emotive work to those nine. I went to iraq. And i made a series of images essentially architectural project photographic project documenting the us forces who were based in the saddam hussein's palace architecture and saddam. Hussein had about eighty four palaces. All around iraq may which he never even visited when the us military arrived. They were so strategically well located for obvious. Reasons and very defensively built. They made pretty straight forward operating bases so they were occupied by the us military which i found fascinating just the layers of power and expression of that architecturally from the sort of provisional corporate office partitions and cubicles that the. Us army would hastily set up within the very pompous and often poorly built authoritarian architecture of saddam hussein which had a very specific style with some very strange eccentric ornamental features. Such as giant teapots and. Yeah it was very incongruous staff. And i brought eight by ten inch camera there and it'd be like that project and after that i realized frustrated with the medium documentaries over here. It's really so conservative as a language so reductive often. You're just an illustrator for writers texts if you're doing it at oriel which primarily. We're documenta over. Do i wanted to break it apart. Actually i wanted to somehow really smashes just for myself. It was a very personal desire to essentially as an expression of the frustration of with my own practice. I was at that time. Kodak was on its path to bankruptcy was announced had announced the discontinuation of this infrared film. Kodak erico two thousand ten. I think says nine around the time and so i thought well this is a wonderful way to unpack a documentary subject. I don't know what may be quite yet. But i gathered as much as i could off ebay and wherever it was being made extinct and i sort of worked backwards from the medium which i always tend to do actually to find to find effective subject or subjects that could be more adequately conveyed to be elevated through the medium through this particular medium and reading was a starting point for me over. The last ten years i've been working with spurred you call them infra-red film technology's very interested in the unseen registry invisible light forms as the way often metaphorically telling very complex documentary narratives more powerful way and to refresh very saturated subject matter for example the refugee crisis unfolding across europe the middle east north africa. Everybody photographer was out there taking pictures. And they all tend to look rather similar. And i really was. After a certain point the imagery just became inherently less compelling and less powerful as language. So i wanted to refresh my own way and i found this bizarre military grade thermographic camera that can image human body heat from thirty kilometres distance. Day or nice. It's classes weapon designed for battlefield situational awareness long-range insurgents detection tracking and targeting. So it was actually part of a weapon. System very sort of activated medium to think through the representation of the refugee crisis and also almost an aggravated one. Really confront the viewer. On some level with their own complicity. I believe and that was my intention to really make people feel that. And i think as an orange has that's one of the only things you can do is to make people feel something so i was working through metaphor aesthetics in this work but with that work with my project incoming its title and it was using this weapons technologies long range border enforcement technology. Thermographic heat-detection camera. I realized i was also operating in certain moments on another level beyond the metaphorical and beyond the aesthetic. And that was the the forensic after understand. The camera sees index heat register. You can calibrate for about forty degrees and anything. That's relatively cooler or relatively warmer within. That given frame is depicted in black or white depending on how you set the the recording set the image. And so something that's black. Could be everything that's warms. The human body would be depicted in black and everything cold surrounding him. Buddy will be waste for example or if you sell it. The other way white hart. It's the opposite. And i was filming this tragic event i've ever witnessed probably ever will. Hopefully it was one of the biggest human trafficking disasters on the gnc and human memory of three hundred people or more were on a on a fishing trawler was had paid to be on that boat from turkey to lead boss and human traffickers just packed that boat too many people who zone designed for perhaps twenty or thirty people so the top deck of the boat collapsed and doing panic entire hull ripped apart and we were able to capture all this from about seven kilometers away with camera designed exactly for this kind of thing and then when the bodies were brought to shore to the harbour of malvo's something store happy it was after dark at this point literally out on the cold stone pier they were lined up on thermal. Br red cross workers volunteers local doctors. Anyone who could could help out. Were were frantically trying to revive these hypothermic victim. Some whom passed out or semi drowned or some had had remain conscious. But we're literally freezing to death. And so they were literally what they were doing. Rubbing life-giving warmth from their hands into the flesh coddled flesh of the these hypothermic victims in front of us on the pier. Desperately trying to sort of transmit life-giving heat back back into them. Now a normal camera of course after dark wouldn't wouldn't be abc's very much let alone. Would it be able to see the trace of that of that transmission of warmth which the thermal camera was able to do incredibly effective articulation of exactly the crux of of the emergency unfolding around us. It was a of very powerful test. Testimonial footage of the the effort survive these people on the scale of a trauma around us. That was richard moss and do head over to our website to the full version of that interview.

"Decade later hussein staged a coup ousting the leader of his own party and installed himself as president of iraq. The country remained under hussein's autocratic rule. For almost thirty years in that time hussein became entrenched in a cult of personality. He was known to have commissioned a koran to be transcribed from his own blood and even wrote a romance novel that was later adapted into a musical. He insisted the iraqi people call him. Great uncle or the anointed one but hussein's rule didn't just consist of lavish vanity projects under his leadership. Iraq spiraled hussein engaged in a bitter eight-year war with neighbouring iran that drained the country's finances and killed hundreds of thousands of iraqis not long after in nineteen ninety. Saddam invaded kuwait resulting in the first gulf war. He also orchestrated multiple massacres in iraq and neighboring countries alike including the mass murder of the shia and kurdish people. Whether through war chemical weapons or a cleansing more than a million people lost their lives under saddam's regime however in two thousand and three believing iraq had weapons of mass destruction. the united states invaded and sent hussein into hiding. Nearly nine months later he was found in an underground bunker in his hometown of crete. The us never found any weapons of mass destruction. However hussein's capture by american forces spell the end of his dictatorship. He was imprisoned for three years during which he was tried in. Iraq's national court ultimately he was found guilty of crimes against humanity and was sentenced to hang the moments leading up to hussein's hanging were broadcast throughout the country by iraqi national television many cheered at the footage of their once. Brutal leader being led to the gallows but tribal loyalties also shaped how iraqis felt about. His execution hussein was a sunni muslim as were many members of his government while many shia were overjoyed at his death. Iraq sudanese had more mixed feelings. Some supporters of hussein chose to remember him as a hero. A defender of iraq against american occupation. Rather than a desperate. And some were outraged. After saddam's the newly-installed prime minister new reality pleaded with the rockies for unity. He said in a written statement in the name of the people. I call on all men of the past regime and manipulated by it to reconsider their stances. These pleas for peace were answered with violence. The day of hussein's execution multiple car bombs were reported in shia majority cities killing over sixty people. It seemed iraq's future was still and the climate in the country would be fraught with tension for years to come under. Iraq's fledgling government the region remained deeply divided spurring uprisings and even civil war still. Since the dom hussein's execution iraq has forged.

Let's go back to saturday. December thirtieth two thousand six around six am in baghdad. The room was still dark as the sun rose and yet no one turned on a proper light instead. They clump together in the dim industrial space talking amongst themselves and waiting there were about two dozen of them there that morning for the of a dictator. It was a surprisingly small crowd. Only witnesses and the executioners themselves would be allowed the grim privilege of witnessing saddam hussein's final moments some were buzzing with anticipation others however stood in silence. They all knew the significance of the ground they stood on. It was the former headquarters of saddam hussein's defunct secret police. It was a place that had facilitated the violent interrogations of hussein's enemies for years. More than one man. Standing in the room had been tortured by saddam's spies in that very building and now they were about to watch the man responsible die. Finally it was happening. The door opened and three guards with black ski masks escorted an older bearded man in a dark overcoat into the room. There'd been whispered that. Saddam had put up a struggle when they came to take him from his cell that morning but the man in front of the now showed no signs of resistance as he stepped inside the dark room. He looked drawn. And aged hussein's characteristic. Pride and fire seemed to have been sapped. That was left was a quiet man who suddenly looked all of his sixty nine years. Perhaps for the first time he was vulnerable and yet saddam remained calm composed even a camera snapped it's flash illuminating the room for a moment then broken from its stupor. The room suddenly came alive. Voices clamored and more cameras clicked punctuating. The this as the former president was led up a steep metal staircase at the top stood a platform in its center hung alone. Noose in stood stoically with his hands bound behind his back as his executioner placed a black cloth around his neck but when offered a hood be placed over his head he refused it was only once he was on top of the gallows platform overlooking a crowd of witnesses. That the sparks of hussein's defiance finally reemerged. He shouted to the crowd. God is great. The nation will be victorious and palestine is arab then the rope was placed over his head. Prayers and taunts alight could be heard from the room below as hussein stood with the noose around his neck. One of the executioners told him that he had destroyed iraq arguments erupted around the room. in response hussein. A suny muslum mocked a prominent shiite cleric. They would be some of the last words he ever uttered. The noose was tightened and the trap door beneath his feet opened with a great crash. The metal platform gave way hussein. Dropped through the floor and the room erupted into chaos. The witnesses clamored over to the place where he had fallen checking to see if it worked if he was really gone as they gathered around cheers echoed across the cement room. Saddam hussein the former president of iraq the tyrant who had held an iron grip over the country for over two decades was finally coming up. The world wakes up to the news of saddam's.

"Just a brutal. You know horrible war that's fought with credibly brutal tactics. That ends in late nineteen, eighty eight, and you would think that like. Maybe Saddam would want to kind of take a breather. But it's nice now with this guys. And it was kind of draw. Yes, it came to draw basically yet. No neither side achieved any. Any Games through it. Saddam was the one who wants the war and he didn't achieve any gains. You could see lost on that count, but yeah, but yeah. yeah, nineteen, th. That's late nineteen eighty-eight by early nineteen eighty-nine. Saddam is already telling Kuwait. So a lot of the other, Arab countries worried about Iran too, so they were financing Saddam. They were loaning money things like that. And, already by early nineteen eighty-nine Saddam is telling Kuwait you're GONNA have to forgive that debt because we were defending you too, and we're not paying that sixty five billion dollars. And Kuwait's not willing to do that. They say that we're not going. Do Saddam's Oh. You're GONNA do it. and. By the next summer summer in one, thousand, nine hundred. He's invading Kuwait. So no rest for the weary. And he's he doesn't unpredictable way. I remember seeing an interview with Mubarak the Egyptian President at the time longtime. Egyptian, president. And we're allies Mubarak. We knew him well. He was not just allies with friends with Saddam Hussein by this point he knew him. They talk on the phone. And he called Saddam on the phone and he says what's going on here. You GonNA, Invade Kuwait. And Saddam tells him. No. No I'm just bluffing. Just don't worry about. It totally fine the next day. He invades Kuwait Owen so actually here's what happened or something else in there is. Mubarak comes and tells us that he says hey, he's bluffing. Don't worry about it, and so our ambassador at the time gets called in by Saddam. And Saddam wants to feel him out right. See how we're doing with this whole thing and our ambassador had just heard from Mubarak. Piece bluffing. Don't worry about it. Don't don't push him, and so he says you know Arab on Arab. Lake Affairs that's not really our business. We're not. We don't really not invested in this and Saddam right and the next day. He invades Kuwait right. So Mubarak nobody had any idea what's going on here I mean I don't even know if I read that quote in the last episode that he tells somebody one thing he tells another person and other thing, and then after that does. Does something completely different this surprises? He's even surprises himself. So maybe it was something like that. I mean He. It's not beyond him. Just the mentality that you're dealing with you eight year war, and by the way you're sitting in a place in a country that's got these incredible amount of natural resources and. Saddam Hussein could have lived. Like a king, but like he could live, because he did live like a king, but he could lived like a peaceful king, and just had an incredible. Incredible existence especially with Iran right there, threatening everybody, we would have been happy to him. The face of the Arab world. We would have been happy to do it, so that's where you start the OH. That's where you start to really. You know look when.

"How can we bring along? How can we bring him on? RT? Our Team, yeah! That was definitely the thinking and you know we didn't know who we were dealing with. We did not recognize the the level of of beasts that we were dealing with with Saddam. And I think by the end of the eighty S. we had a pretty good idea that that was the case. because we'd end up at war with ourselves shortly after that. I mean but the Iranians again like they. They seem very dangerous at the time. This is a big country, large population, a well-equipped military with an expansionist foreign policy and when they were fighting Iraq. You know. These are people who who were who were sending human waves of teenagers across minefields to clear them with no weapons, just sending human waves, kids across minefields to clear them out. This, is it? This was a regime that look very very dangerous and they were dangerous. We, just maybe you know. We allowed ourselves to get sucked into some allusions about how how controllable Saddam Hussein was. That's for sure. When. I think. Is a lot of there's a lot. We don't know about the casualties in the Iran Iraq war, but most estimates have between eight hundred thousand million people. It's a big war. It's a big conventional war, the battle of Bosnia toward the end of it I think was the biggest battle since the Second World War if I'm not mistaken. Maybe since one of the one of the Korean War Korean wars, battles, but I. Think Sixty five thousand Iranians and twenty five thousand Iraqis were killed. I mean it's a big battle. That's a big. A set piece battle. Or, we're just not used to those kind of things where there's a lot of trench warfare going on, and they are just a war of attrition literally. I mean they're at the point toward the end where they're manpower's depleted in there, just launching Scuds at each other cities you know and. Brutal thing. And that ends in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty eight. Month before that is when US intens shutdown that Iranian airliner. But as Iranians now know from their recent experience. Things happen yeah I brought that up. A I was surprised. It wasn't brought up more. After this recent incident, and this is again you know when you start talking about the the theme of having a threat die back to, but yeah the Vincennes. Shot down an Iranian, airliner. However, many souls were on board. You know hundreds of one, hundred fifty or whatever that number is. In, so it's A. Massive loss of life and we. Very very actually very similar circumstances. When you pick that apart, you know the. The Iranian shooting down the airline. Iranian shutdown of the airline was it was so similar like the panic buttons going off, you know they. There's there's uncertainty going on. I remember I had some people that I knew not military people who? When the Iranian shut down that airliner! They were kind of like Oh. Something like that doesn't happen by mistake. I'm like no total. Very. Who's running that thing? They've never been in combat before that. The person running that air defence battery has never been in combat. They've never had a situation where it counted. And they're in a situation where they're probably expecting to be. Up You're waiting to get attacked by the Americans and all of a sudden. You know you're you're? You know you and I can picture this. He probably better than me because you were in the. In the? Combat if information centers at the. So you're in that on a ship, and there's all of a sudden. You know someone's going right. We got tracking. We're tracking inbound and there's spin off of the voice, and and now you gotTa make a decision. You GotTa make a decision to what we're GONNA do. We. See something on the radar where looking at it. We know we're vulnerable to attack right now where we're anticipating attack. Oh, where is it heading? We're tracking August. We're heading for us. All Right? Hey, we need to take this thing. This is a missile attack boom. This is A. This could so easily happen. It's ridiculous actually how easy it could happen in eighty seven, when the stark got hit by Iraqi cruise missile to cruise missiles, I think the Te'o, tactical action officer and the commanding officer they got disciplined for failing to defend their ship and I. I got to Imagine I. Mean they're sitting there like? Is this really happening right now? If I hit fire, am I going to kill a bunch of civilians like that's a? That's a worrying thing you know, and it's got to be a tough. I've never had to make any decision like that obviously and it. Yeah, it's a tough one. I mean especially if you're paying that, I have to imagine that night. When the Iranians launch those missiles at us a few months ago and They must have just been sitting on pins. Seattle's bracing for impact especially with trump. You know what that guy is GonNa? Do and if he does respond, you know it's going to be overwhelming. And they had been bracing for impact. I mean it up, you know. They called the head and everything supposedly, but golly you just don't know. And the Vincennes had had similar like spin ups going into that shootdown as well where. That, wasn't that wasn't A. Again I'm not saying not making excuses, but. Sitting here, I can understand how that unfolds. You bring up the fact that in Ramadi. There was blue on blue. There was Humvees shot other Humvees so so think about that. You know like Humvee when most recognizable vehicles ever made. which is. Solely used by the US military, and I guess we had Iraqis Houston at that point as well, but the enemy was not driving around these. Years later Isis was driving around in Humvees. But at that time there was no one driving around in Humvees. No enemy and you know a young guy paranoid and freaked out and scared, and you know sees a muzzle flash or sees whatever and engage. That's what happens. It's horrible knowing that it you know. If you fail to act then the next second, you might be dead and you just gotTa do it, and it's the wrong decision, but and and yeah, when you're doing something like air-defense. You're not looking at an aircraft up there. You're looking at a blip on a radar screen. You know at an aircraft that's out of visual range. and so Saddam Yeah, we're talking about. Saddam sky comes in power and seventy nine starts. Executing people starts terrorizing population immediately goes to war with Iran has an year long war. It's the bloodiest war the second half of the twentieth.
