The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa

"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha

Somalia and Kenya have gone very close to going to war with each other and may get close. Astill the battlefield is jubilant. One of Somalia's five semi autonomous states. It lies just across Somalia's border with Kenya. Kenya regards drew ballooned as a vital buffet. Between it and Al Shabaab the fanatical Islamist militia which wreaks most of its havoc in Somalia but has also been responsible for large scale outrages in Kenya including the two thousand and thirteen attack on the West Gate Shopping Mall in Nairobi and the two thousand and fifteen attack on a university campus in Garissa accordingly Kenya has cultivated friendly relations with Jubal lands regional government and with jubilant president.

Kenya's desire to put physical distance between itself. And the PESTILENTIAL MARAUDERS OF AL.

Exactly is the area in contention the border of the two countries when it comes to the seats and the only way to explain where the disputed portion of Indian Ocean is without incurring angry correspondence from either Kenya or Somalia.

It will come as little surprise to listeners that the stretch of Ocean in question abounds with oil and gas deposits. Nineteen outbreak may focus Kenyan and Somali attention elsewhere and or it may offer a party to this argument what it perceives as cover for decisive action. There has been some suggestion.

Heroism and resilience of Somali people in face of ongoing attacks

"Somali people have demonstrated heroism and resilience in the face of ongoing insecurity caused by senseless terrorist is to tax that's according to the u._n.'s most senior representative in the horn of africa country james swan who is the u._n. Secretary general's special representative for somalia was speaking you and headquarters in new york ahead of briefing the security council on wednesday somalia continues to be affected by insecurity caused by terrorists organizations like al-shabaab it will so struggles regularly with drought and his chronically underdeveloped. Mr swan arrived in somalia just two months ago so daniel dickinson began by scheme for his first first impressions. It's been some years since i was last in mogadishu and so overall. I've been impressed by signs of progress signs of life that i've witnessed recently coming back from meetings. I've seen young people playing football in the streets. I've seen <hes> signs of economic activity vity shops even a traffic jam which suggests that the capital is indeed <hes> coming back to life after many years of difficulty that said of course i the security situation remains a concern for all of us but especially for the somali population that has suffered over many years from senseless attacks six civilians. That's right. I mean there's almost a daily threat of attacks in mogadishu. How does that affect somalis who live there while they continue with their lives. Despite these threats they open businesses. They send their children to school. They have weddings. They care for one another. They simply have had to move on and continue with their lives and livelihoods in spite of these threats and i think it's really testimony to their resilience eh to their strength really to their heroism in the face of these senseless terrorist attacks. The mayor of mogadishu was assassinated recent. He's one of those those casualties of the civil unrest. You'd actually met him earlier. In the day you know what was he like. And what impact is that going to have on mogadishu on somalia. Well the mayor known as a engineer. Your resume was a well known political figure and leader in mogadishu and more broadly in somalia he'd he'd held number of senior ministerial and advisory portfolios in multiple governments <hes> he had spent many years abroad in the diaspora and i think he was a an example an impressive example of many somalis who have returned from abroad to help rebuild their country entry to invest their time their energy their expertise and their commitment <hes> <unk> trying to make somalia a better place he was an an example of that <hes> he will be missed but at the same time somalia's shown great strength in overcoming <hes> previous losses <hes> and from. I'm talking to those on his staff. I have no doubt that they will continue his work and seek to build on his earlier accomplishments as they move forward in the future. I i think the image that many people get from the international media is of a country in a continual political crisis. Listen to me. How far is that. There are many important political decisions that need to be made in somalia in the coming months. If national priorities <unk> are going to be achieved in two thousand twenty there are important objectives for twenty twenty <hes> including <hes> organizing national level elections including a continuing to make progress on security operations and broader security sector reform and advancing the the national development agenda including a by obtaining <hes> debt relief that would allow for predictable financing going forward. These are important priorities. He's <hes> they require a political agreement. They require a consensus among main <hes> somali leaders <hes> in order to achieve the success is that we're all hoping for in two thousand twenty so yes there's constant political debate <hes> constant political competition within somalia as within other other countries but what's most important now is that we move ahead with more consensual process <hes> leading into these key goals for twenty twenty but most levels of government still struggle to perform that basic functions. Is there any way that that's going to change in the near future. I've in fact been impressed. <hes> since my return <hes> to somalia and in the two months that i've been <hes> in country i've had the opportunity to visit <hes> all of the federal member states as well as somaliland and overall. I have been impressed by the quality and capability of <hes> the administration's astray shins that i've encountered in these different locations. I think we're seeing a many well educated. <hes> dynamic committed committed <hes> individuals increasingly young leaders who are assuming responsibilities and roles <hes> at the in the administration's both at the national channel level and at the federal member state level so they give me a great optimism really that the country is on the right path and that these individuals are we're going to make a significant further progress in being able to respond to the needs of the somali people. You've mentioned twenty twenty next year. What wysocki year it's a key year partly because of the political cycle in somalia the presidential mandate <hes> is four the years <hes> and so there is to be an election and another transition in twenty twenty or perhaps early twenty twenty one <hes> so <hes> a- as with any period or mandate in government <hes> this is a moment to try to consolidate progress and complete <hes> important goals that have been elaborated since the beginning of the president's term so among those are the importance of completing the electoral process itself this will require adoption of an electoral code before the end of this year <hes> and other technical preparations <hes> including of course identifying and funding the necessary budget twenty twenty. We'll also important for consolidating further progress on the security pretty front <hes> both in expanding on very promising operations that have been undertaken in lower shebele since the beginning of of april <hes> and that are continuing <hes> but also to ensure that other security sector improvements advance this involves not just the military police justice corrections so that <hes> the somali people can live in an environment of greater security and justice us and finally as i mentioned there is an important milestone in the national development agenda related to debt relief the government has has been working very hard on this priority it requires some further <hes> consultation and support with the legislature and with the federal member states <hes> but this would be a key benchmark of accomplishment if somalia's able to meet the requirements for debt relief in two thousand twenty darrell however if <hes> groups operating in the country i'll ship app for one which don't want that progress to be made. Well al-shabaab offers a negative suggestion data for the country's destructive agenda that is seeking to disrupt efforts by a well-meaning somalis and somali leaders to see the country advance. I think it's to the credit of the overall somali population that al-shabaab has been unsuccessful zestful in halting the progress that <hes> that we've seen in recent years and that despite the persistence of terrorist attacks six the national priorities continue to advance and we want to see them further consolidated in the coming year. What role can the u n play a in helping somalia on its path towards a better future i mean do you get the impression when you meet somali leaders that they're confident the u._n. Is doing good work. The united nations family is engaged in a wide range of programming across the full all united nations country team this includes work on women's empowerment it includes work on youth inclusion it includes outreach to civil society groups it includes humanitarian response through the world food program and the food and agriculture organization and unicef coordinated by the office of the coordinator for humanitarian affairs that includes work on cultural and educational issues and an array of other priorities. It also includes important support in the security sector notably through the u._n. Support office for somalia so i think across a wide range of issues the united nations family is contributing in close partnership with somalis. I would ed also of course the united nations assistance mission to somalia plays a role in terms of good offices and efforts is to support political and community reconciliation and to see the national political project including further democratisation <hes> move forward in the country so i think across a broad range of priorities that the somalis themselves have established. We are important contributing partners as you said. You've been working on somalia for <hes> more than a couple of decades. What's the best case outlook for four the country ten years hence. How'd you like to see somalia ten years from now. I think there's a widely shared vision that we would like to see somalia at peace in the country and with its neighbours we'd like to see it governed <hes> peaceably sibley and with stability and with significant public participation through a broadly accepted electoral process we'd like to see it on the path to sustained development <hes> with involvement not only by <hes> development partners but by an active private-sector. That's contributing to the lives and livelihoods of the somali people. I think these objectives are widely shared shared. I think we would like to see those objectives also be inclusive. Inclusive in terms of participation by women participation by young people apple seventy percent of the country is under thirty five years of age seventy percent of the population so the future is now in many ways for somalia so i think that is the objective that is shared vision that is guiding all of us as we try to work in partnership for a better somalia.

K. ambassador to Somalia band fender treated this he said to a good bye to him he said to add to the public seventy he said kind and gentle colleague friend he said you have been called away much too soon our hearts are so heavy today we woke join hands to continue the work you started than Somalia we will bill Somalia in the in in your memory and you know what what sort of impact to tell me did he make in Somalia well I mean that those tributes have been have been coming from far and wide I mean we see even the response from a lot of the the as you mentioned the international partners but you know particularly in Somalia you know he was known locally as engineer yeah I was sold which translates as a young engineer just relating to you know goes with the kind of the work he had tried to do and and just making Mogadishu a better place fixing infrastructure and and a lot of reconstruction work but he also you know spoke boldly against al Shabab and and you know was not afraid to to take on them but but he was also a man known locally in terms of politics and and how he wanted to justice for all you know to be dealt with a lot of people who he believed locally had been fueling in security so this is a man who was out spoken but at the same time somebody who seemed very accessible to everybody seems to have a story about him yeah an al Shabaab was chased out of Mogadishu right in twenty twelve so war what state is that the group in in terms of fits presence in some money at the moment well I mean which we've talked about this many times on the on the program I don't think much has changed in terms of the two sides you know the the Somali government is still trying is still getting the support from its international partners but at the say you know to to fight aus about but at the same time also Bob still maintains this presence almost like an ever present form in the flesh of the the the Somali government and its people and it continues to target government that seems to be its main it's it you know its mane HM yeah it wants to be a government in Somalia we so even in the statement that it made about this particular attack it also like to play up its own achievement so it said he was trying to target the U. N. envoy in we have no proof that they were able to successfully follow him I think this is pop possibly a part of that propaganda to make it look as if they dare a more powerful and instill fear in among the peoples that's what else about his doing but it's also going to new frontiers for example two weeks ago or there about we saw the attacking Kismayo when they hadn't attacked in years so this group is still powerful still a major threat in Somalia okay the BBC's tell me a lot of thank you very much for

"It's very typical for them to strike any kind of hotel restaurant or government office where either government officials or people supporting or engaging with the government would be located. It's important for us to understand that al-shabaab is not in conflict with the United States. The U._S. has been constantly hitting al-shabaab with strikes this year fifty so far which is a massive escalation already over last year which was a massive escalation Denver strikes the previous year al-shabaab is primarily interested in local politics. They want to control Somalia and their primary reason for existing is to fight the Somali government not the U._S. and so I think that the airstrikes have made it less easy for them to attack the government but they definitely as this strike is probably intended to show they are definitely able still to launch these massive attacks which is an indication that the strikes are not working very well. You're so what are those airstrikes accomplishing well. I think there's some evidence that they are putting great pressure on Al Shabaab and there's some splintering with Al Shabaab as a result but I think even the AFRICOM leadership has been quite candid that it's not very likely that these airstrikes going to destroy al-shabaab or even debilitate the organization the problem is that the government has been stalled for ten years and the U._S. has spent millions and millions of dollars trying to train soldiers for the government that coupon defecting and there's really no command and control in the Somali army and there's not a strong sense of loyalty so it's it's primarily a set of political problems that are not going to be solved through military force and the American American government in using military force in drone strikes in particular is running the risk of alienating the Somali people because obviously civilians are increasingly being caught up in these strikes does the U._S. have a policy for bringing peace to Somalia. The U._S. doesn't have any kind of plan for bringing peace to Somalia. It's consistently said that it's trying to build a government. It's trying to empower the government but it's not elected and I think there's still a lot of uncertainty in Somalia about what the government should look like Mike and certainly a lot of dissatisfaction about what this particular government looks like across the country you see regional administrations popping up that are basically clan feifdoms all of whom are at odds with the central government. It's really been a case of one step forward. Chew steps back. What you think is the best way the U._S.? Can Help Somalia right now in my view. The best thing that the United States can do is to negotiate with Al Shabaab we have for many many years described Al Shabaab as a terrorist organization but that's it's not all that they are all they have been very harsh. They've also increased the rule of law and and a lot of Somalia's depend on them and I think what's important for the U._S.. is to try to recognize the things that al-shabaab has accomplished and find a way to coexist I with them and to negotiate with them to get them to agree for example not to target neighboring countries not to target Christians. It's also important to point out that Al Shabaab relationship with Al Qaeda has been quite tempestuous as far as partners go. They've been pretty poor. One and I think that the alliance's quite weak and so again the possibility of working with Al Shabaab perhaps draw them away from al Qaeda and find a way to coexist with them is not impossible Bronwyn Bruton with the Atlantic Council..

"Kept on three. Ziff me, but I'm supposed to any fight. That's from shootout earlier this year at the height of its power al-shabaab controlled the capital Mogadishu and effectively ruled the country the terrorist group was driven out of Mogadishu by African Union forces in two thousand eleven that small ius fight against al-shabaab is far from over the ultimate goal of the US and other foreign interests in the country is to train local forces to do the brunt of the fighting. It's a strategy. The US has used in places like if ghanistan in Iraq with Mexico. Yes. Initially, the US Pinto PTS on the Somali national army. The army has proven unreliable deep divides between rival clans have been an obstacle to creating a United Somalia. The Somali national army is an immune to these problems says Omar math mood with the institute for security studies in east Africa, internally you have issues of developing a cohesive national army that takes account the Smalley clan structure right now, what you have more so is throughout the country collection of cleanliness militias, which can respond than more to their clans rather than Mahmoud issue or unified commander. So I think moving beyond that is a huge challenge. Then there are the issues of resources and corruption the Somali government's power wanes the further you get from August issue. Al Shabaab fighters currently control twenty percent of Somalia mostly in rural areas in the south. They take over villages impose sharia law and even Levy taxes for a steady stream of. Revenue. This video from an Al Shabaab training camp shows fighters who are often better equipped and organized than soldiers in the national army only seventy percent of Somali soldiers even have weapons and in two thousand seventeen the US stopped paying salaries for the army citing widespread corruption. Instead, both the US and Somali governments are backing an elite group of Somali soldiers known as Dan AB or lightning. It's a force. It's intentionally made up of soldiers for many clans exclusively trained by American commandos small quick moving units have had success season ground from L shebab. The dinette battalion that has worked and become more effective, George Washington University, professor Paul Williams, essentially because it's being kept separate from this messy clan. Corrupted set of politics that is sort of undermining and degrading the Smalley national army. It's not just the military. The government lacks the infrastructure to establish itself. In those new. Early gained areas. Meanwhile, al-shabaab is adapting its members often infiltrate the government and army creating fear with a sassy nations and suicide bombings al-shabaab has also gotten more bold in Mogadishu. There have been at least four attacks there. So far this year. Washington has responded by increasing airstrikes targeting al-shabaab strongholds, but defeating al-shabaab requires more than just a military solution Paul Williams again, the key problem. Here is political the reason why Somalia has not been able to build an effective national army is because there's no political consensus among Somali elites that that's what they want to try and do if you can't even agree on what your nation is. And how it's going to be governed. You can't build an effective national security architecture until then it looks like American and African Union forces will be needed. I'm very realistic. That's amend Hussein. He manages a hotel in Mogadishu that was attacked by suicide bomber a few years ago. People like us. We cannot keep continue without people. Ask them limits.

Let's just talk to the. BBC's Tommy allow the po- he's on the line from the Kenyan capital and Tommy understand. You've just come back from the scene of the attack. Probably you could just begin by describing what you found that. Yes. The scene is not far from from our bureau here, and we heard a very loud explosion. And we could feel it in the ground before we went there, and we got there. It was a bit of chaos really lots of people coming out of the of the complex. This is a complex a a hotel and lots of building lots of offices in those buildings the several buildings clustered together. So it's very densely populated. You can imagine security forces in there. Ambulances as well. Fabricate lots of responses there and. Also people who are being led out from the buildings being screened as leaving because the police will worry that some of the attackers might try to filter out. Yes, how many attackers and as far as we know how many casualties of the stage. Well, it's not clear exactly how many how many attackers there were. We've heard from the Shabaab militant groups saying that they're responsible that they're behind this attack. It comes exactly three years after an attack that they carried out on Kenyan a major attack the Kenyan military base in Somalia. We're seeing lots of people being laid out. I saw two people come out with with gunshot wounds. But no official casualty figure yes, I'm seeing some reports have three people who've been killed you mentioned that third anniversary of that the attack on the military base. It a day. But of course, people will also remember the attack on the west gate shopping mall in Nairobi. Yes. Indeed. And in fact, west gate is. Not far away from from this today's incident. So it shows that know ship trying again to have this kind of shock attack here, it's a complex attack. We we even saw another vehicle which was a suspect vehicle that police took out they suspected that. It was brought in by the attack has and they just carried out a controlled explosion. So al-shabaab looking to hit Kenya. Again, very hard. They've declared Kenya as the enemy and really trying to cause lots of damage. You're just explain that a bit more ultra Bob, of course, based in Somalia neighboring Somalia, why are they going after targets in Kenya? Al Shabaab has always said that Kenya was invading Somalia. Kenya is sent his army in to support this. Molly government to bring stability to the country and al-shabaab since Kenya sent its troops. And in two thousand eleven have been carrying out attacks both against Kenyans in Kenyan troops in somebody as well as the Kenyan public here in Kenya. So they've been all kinds of tax on public locations. And does that mean that I mean just taking Nairobi for example? I mean is that the same level of security in the city that there was a couple of years ago, or is it being done graded to some extent? Now, I think most major buildings are still have security, in fact, this particular one because it's a high profile venue. There is lots of security going in lots of checks, but I suppose in this particular case, these people had planned world able to overpower the security that they found that the building and go in and just finally as far as we know is this still on. Going all the security services as mopping up. As for about thirty minutes last, thirty minutes hours at the at the scene. I didn't hear any any gunfire had been sporadic before that. And it wasn't clear who exactly what shooting whether it was the attackers or the security forces. So right was not heard anything since then. So it's not exactly clear that the police are not giving any definite word, and they're still trying to get people out there. Still lots of people lots of people in that complex. So they're still trying to get everybody out to be able to confirm that it's clear Tommy many, thanks for joining us live there from Nairobi with the latest on that attack on.

"Marriage. And at a time when there is a war against the good child's education, there has to be a war that is wage on behalf of the good child access to education. And that has to go hand in hand with child marriage and be also have to see this as Kant of some of the CB and Peavey eek strategies. Kitchen mentioned a key part of combating educating girls on on the issue for large, Doug is to question. Has there ever been an instance of two children being forced to marry other a boy and a girl both under the age of eighteen? And I asked that question. Because I would think a key part of that education is also executing boys, right? Hey, as you grow up, this is not. Okay. And here's, why is that imagine that's part of the strategy to or not? Can you talk to them? So that is a very good question, but then he so I've done a map paying off and does not brides it's a, it's a car for denies ation that has a website with a map of all of the laws that have a child marriage in their statute books. And you look at what the see is that all of these laws. A parade on a term of what I call in gender duality that is almost like hypocrisy in these laws so that a good, a good age of marriage is lower than the boys age of marriage. And to some extent that is also the duality that renders we're, but but that is shaped by the devaluation of the good shy that somehow of goods value lies in a marriage, right? So that is one part of his second. It's a way of protecting the goal from alleged or imagine harmful threats of sexual abuse of of on a kinds. And I think you're going to be touching upon that too. This is all part of that continuum of a good on his owned by her family, and therefore the earliest instance she needs to be given in marriage in order to protect her as well as to protect the family. Then Thirdly, she's a commodity you, there's the commodification of a God by giving her in marriage and being either, you know, getting a bride price or getting rid of, you know, give her away to another family. And then finally times. Of war b see with it is with al-shabaab or with Boko haram goods bodies become the sights of wild once. So that again, so these, they're these four, five reasons that really. Need to be addressed as root causes of child marriage Frankie. Thank you. I wanna turn from child marriage to the horrific crime of acid attacks, which particularly facts women in countries across South Asia, including Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Verna. Some reports suggest that incidence is actually increasing in this part of the world. Why is that. Well, the first reason is and fully bonded. Vici- has addressed it. In then law. We was in the two prizes and it's been the most effective ingen law and the two five, sunny laws that have come since have not had the teeth because they have not. Addressed the purchase and sale of asset asset is something which is very, very, very cheap in southeast Asia. It's used in jewellery production. It's used all over for agricultural purposes for pumpkin seed and hit us full of rubber production, etcetera. So any pharma EMMY farmhand anyone who works in fact free making any kind of jewelry can't get the hands on. Asset and the whole gallon of acid will cost lessen the Jolla. Now, four bought photon Gita was joking about right about child marriage for me. Why acid violence, the sodium, fourth, and why it has doesn't not interested enough people. I feel in the west is because it has not really hit a nerve your lives in any way that you can see it like child marriage, you talk about from Massachusetts to, you know, Delaware, etcetera. Something in your life did something you see across the globe. Acid violence is if chide is not given in marriage, that child could be doused and acid and destroyed for life. The always go for the face and the neck, which means blindness and disfiguration people who can afford it can have ten to thirty surgeries and still never ever. You see the employable again. The never have the confidence to leave the home. Again, they destroyed. So this happens if you don't give your girl in marriage to a more powerful person or an older person..

"It's it's a leafy that would have been forbidden, but only forbidden smoking cigarettes would have been forbidden. Listening to music would have been forbidden and muscle molly's, like all that stuff. Yeah, no pirates in particular. But a cut addiction is also very detrimental in very expensive, but it's a little bit like chewing, I dunno, coca leaf or something. It gives you, it gives you a high and then it depresses you asleep and then you wake up and do it again. And you had to live in fear of a worse fate. The possibility of being sold to al-shabaab was that just an idle threat. Or where those transactions common between pirates and al-shabaab they weren't common. I think at first it was an idle threat, and I think the calculation changed a little bit when Islamic state's started to behind it, behead Americans Syria. So I heard about James Foley on the radio when it you know a day after he was killed. I happen to have a shortwave radio then. And my one of my guards came up to me and said, you know, James Foley said, I know I heard he said, well, that's not gonna happen to you. But as it happens from what I hear among al-shabaab members who wanted to turn towards IS normally they're affiliated with Al Qaeda, but there was a faction that was interested in sort of aligning with high s. my price went up so they knew that there is an American in Somalia. And conceivably, there was a faction of al-shabaab people who were suddenly willing to pay a little bit more for me. So that was actually, I wasn't aware of those details while I was a hostage. But that. Was suddenly a risk. And so if the ransom didn't come through, there was a possibility that these guys would have paid a pretty penny for you a possibility. It would be a media triumph for them to be able to behead you on telev-. Exactly. Then I would have been a prisoner. All of a sudden Sierra, instead of that's right. As weeks turned into months and even years. Did you ever begin to worry that they would just at some point, cut their losses and kill you? Yeah, sure. I, I mean, that's not normally how pirates work, but right, but after two or three years I was worried about, I mean, it was taking so long. I was worried that they were just gonna sell me to some other group. They were going to kill me by accident. So that does happen. How explain that? Oh, well, so the the ship that I was held on had been hijacked. I think in March two thousand twelve, I was captured a couple of months earlier when we finally wound up on board as prisoners, along with the rest of the crew. A month later the the first thing the crew told us was that the captain had been shot dead by pirates had been shot. He'd been shot dead by Pires, shooting wildly at the bridge. So it was an accident. He wasn't. He wasn't executed by prior to August shot by accident, and the happens. You have all these pirates sitting around with nothing to do all hopped up on Kat. Exactly. I mean, those things probably do happen glistening off in their hand, not not really very difficult..
