"A decade ago after peaceful revolution toppled longtime tunisia dictator bin. Ali i was sitting in an orange grove outside athens. Greece documented migrants. Were hiding there. I came to interview them about human rights abuses suffered while enter europe one of them. Tunisian fellow in a leather jacket explained the people who overthrew ben ali they want democracy and identified life. We across the mediterranean want. Democracy didn't life. What is the difference. The migrant is a kind of revolutionary is idea stuck with me and informed might work as a lawyer and a scholar ever since as middle eastern revolutions turned into civil wars. The refugee crisis unfolded in the measuring. This exacerbated political pressures against asylum-seekers. Initially the european court of human rights took a strong stand against sport or violence in two thousand twelve court decided that the cannot turn asylum seekers back from the mediterranean dangerous libyan territory that first hearing them the human rights community cheer. I was not one of those who cheered in my scholarship. I predicted that this kind of decision could also generate bad results states determined to enforce their own return back asylum seekers even before the entered the supervision of their own courts. I was regretfully correct in recent years. The italians have relied on living to do their dirty work. So eager are some european governments deduction on human rights obligations if an armed libyan militia ignoring the rampant use of torture. This is also why since january. Twenty fourteen more than thirty. Four thousand migrants died by grounding in the mediterranean and since covid nineteen again the militarized border into. Mentoring has come in some ways. Even more extreme but has the militarized quarter caused deaths by drowning.

Pay glad to be here so doug before we get to the new agreement. Can you remind us how this all started. How did boeing and airbus become wrapped up in this while the legal disputes date. Back to two thousand four. The friction between the two parties actually dates back. The best part of their two years boeing used to be the dominant producer of commercial jets. Airbus with european government support started and chipped away at that market. So that kinda made the the. Us concerned about high. That government age was the starting in. There is the market that then brought in the manufacturer's who've been trading blows for the best part of twenty years now so over the course of many years this has really been a battle between the us and the eu. And it's cost importers a lot of money. Can you give us a sense of the scope of this battle. Well that's right. And it spread beyond aircraft to any number of industries high-profile wise whiskey and bourbon and cheese and close all told the calculation is something in the region of eleven billion dollars of tariffs have been imposed on companies on both sides of the atlantic and only a small fraction of that is actually applied to aircraft. So what made the conditions. Now more amenable to reaching agreement the best way to describe this is a truce. We have a new administration in the us. Which is trying to improve.

The Future of Tour Business in 2021 with Steve Perillo

"This is a bad year tour companies. So what do you do when you run into tour company and suddenly. Nobody's traveling today on travel with rick. Steves we're joined by steve parilla of perello tours to talk about how we who make our living in the travel industry are trying to stay afloat in these months of zero revenue during the global pandemic. Steve is joining us to discuss. How the pandemic is hitting his industry and his expectations for the future steve. Thanks for joining us. How are you holding up. Pretty good considering pretty good. Have a driving tour company. Bring about what fifteen thousand people to europe each year. You're the third generation. Ceo of your family to her company. Perello tours how was twenty twenty looking before the pandemic hit it was going to be our best year since probably nineteen ninety-seven. It was going to be a very good year. We've been through a bad time so you know it's not an essential purchase trip so Before nine eleven we had all kinds of stuff If you're in the trump is every ten years you're going to have a really bad year but you lose half your business okay. But twenty twenty It was one hundred percent a loss of business which is astounding. We were euphoric in the tourist industry. We were queued up for our best years ever. The economy was so hot. Everybody wanted to travel. Everything was coming together. You know and you ramp up for it. And then said and bam not only do you have revenue. But you've got a lot of people that have given you money and you have to give back refunds. How did you know that. That is the bane of every tour operator. That's how they go out of business. They spend the deposits before the trip. You're not supposed to do. You're supposed to Ideally put it in escrow you put in a separate account. You don't touch it and we touched it but My father taught me about the rainy day fund and It was millions and millions of dollars. We had to return. Well i we as people to postpone it to this year and a lot of them did but now we're facing march april and may and this time they really do what their money back and it's justified so Were returning all the money and We're not gonna pay taxes for a few years i assume and We're gonna be fine. I don't wanna go through this again in my lifetime though. I don't really want to go. i don't either so you're returning all the money. Meaning you're not gonna pay taxes because you've lost so much money that you'll have losses to take forward under obama two thousand and ten You could deduct losses for five years after the bat. You're right now. There's there's actually laws in some states that prohibit tour companies like ours from doing anything in where i live in washington state. We don't have that option. I mean that money is protected until the tour is actually performed and at first. I didn't like that love. But i see i see the need for it and i'm glad we have it now. It gives us a little guidance. I always think capitalism uses chaperone and. That's what good government is all about for sure sure Now when you look at the industry in general how do you think. The industry did as far as relations and respect to their clientele. There were millions of people who were more than just inconvenienced by the advent of the pandemic when it comes to prepaid to her plans and so on. Well we all wanted to. We all wanted to ask the customer. Let us hold the money and we're going to Apply to next year or the next year. We're even going to give you some money off. And sem didn't really have an option that some of the cruise lies i really You know we're going to give you credit for the future but we have whatever. The customer wanted We did in this regard so we returned the money and a lot of cases and the goodwill is amazing. And they're gonna come back to us for sure. Nancy the goodwill. I mean we made a point of just not even letting people leave their money with this. Thank goodness we had the capacity to do. We sent back. Twenty thousand deposits took months to do it. It was a lot of work. We're not geared up to send the money back but that's what we had to do because as you said we're in this together for the long term and we gotta take care of of our public What do you think about the cost of cancelling tours. You had already set up as a tour organizer did you have to. Did you take a hit. By cancelling out of buses you had arranged in hotels. you had booked on not really the The airlines were considerate. You know we're on the same boat so So they were nice. They were nice. They worked with us in after the whole Catastrophic advent of this for tourism. How did the insurance companies come out. Did they step up to the plate and help people with it. Was the public generally satisfied if they had purchased. You know trip interruption insurance or was this something that was not covered It's not covered. They were tough. They were tough. I found them really not helpful at all. The insurance companies In general they didn't their reputation. Took a hit then after that because they didn't lose much money because depending people lost money in the insurance companies did not right and we have to make up the difference. if somebody We have penalties if you cancel but this was a totally exceptional situation so I don't care where. I don't care about money. We got through it. It's all gonna come back. You know you gotta be classy in this world and then you got to be standing you can have your team together when when you come out of this and we can ramp up again. So when i think of the long term consequences of covid in the pandemic. I'm concerned about the small mom and pop businesses especially in italy. That's your forte. Big companies can get through this pandemic. They can even profit from it. But it's the little moms and pops whether it's the little museum or the the little restaurant or or the little Hotel our guest house. What is your sense about. What's gonna be still standing when when the clouds of this pandemic lift. I know a lot of restaurants are not going to be there. But the italian government european governments are a lot more generous with their citizens so People still got their paychecks. Some checks were protected. I don't know all the details of italian government law but there are a lot more A helpful than the america you know. We have our our strengths to. Yeah well they pay high taxes and part of that is they expect their government to stand by them in a in a time. Like this it's Different from country to country. But in general i think it's fair to say that small operations mom and pops and so on her have a good chance to get through this at this second year of this cova. I don't know how long they can last. But that really is what makes travel so appealing is not to have to go to a strip mall and buy from international corporation. But you have that character you got the local little entrepreneurial ventures and the people with a passion and they love their clientele and it's a joy to be part of that scene and it's a fun puerta. Tourism isn't the old crafts are still alive. And well you know the Inlaid wood is an amazing art. Mosaics are fantastic. We can around these artisans with are group's at the table and and watch that happening. This is travel with rick.

A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia

"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. 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

Pre-election economy in the US compared to Europe

"The American economy with the last jobs report before the election of November of this year. The jobs report right now is James slow as more layoffs become permanent, writes The Wall Street Journal Subhead hiring gain slowed sharply headed into the fall as more layoffs turned permanent. Adding two signs that the U. S economy faces a long slog to fully recover from the pandemic. The number were given by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is 7.9. Why That's significant is at the beginning of the summer, the wags observing the artificial recession caused by the virus in the pandemic. We're saying that it was going to be a great positive for the president and the Trump Administration if that number could get under eight by election Day, but nobody believed it was possible. Well, we're under aged 7.9. However, that's a rhetorical point. And when I want to go to with Chris Is an article in the economist. This's the London based magazine. Which I recommend highly to everybody. These are the smart ones from the English school system over many decades, very smart, keen with a good sense of wit. When they write about politics, and the column asks. Why is America's economy beating forecasts, a retreat of the virus, a big stimulus and a flexible labor market? Causing faster growth compared to what compared to Europe. Compared to Latin America. Compared to Asia. Question. Mark Crests of very good evening to you. Are you surprised that London surprised at how well we're recovering from a blow that has left the See you in tatters. Good evening to you. Good evening, John not surprised at all. It's very common in travel into business in Europe that you hear the Europeans lament the US style system of fewer worker protections and other things. But you see within the U. S economy much more elasticity and resiliency because of that more lays a fair approach in Europe because of the much heavier regulation. Can the inability to said jobs or change jobs or quit it quickly. Many of the large corporations are burdened with employees or employment commitment that they cannot keep in it. Some of that large yes, it is hurting Europe specifically as well as what looks to be a second wave of the virus. The economist author. They do not sign these columns. But this is the wisdom of the Whole team is to admire our flexible labor market. What do they mean by that? Chris flexible. So in the end the European system once you have an employee in at various country by country, But if I take France's example once you have that employees if you hire them, and they finished there. Prohibition period. It's a very, very tough, very expensive to get rid of that employees. Should they not be able to perform the job, or should economic conditions change? You don't need that employee anymore. Very, very inflexible and very, very expensive labor laws in the US In many states, you have much more agility to be able to downsize the right size the business in the face of Ah business change or on issues such as the pandemic. The U. S. Employers are much more able to adjust the market conditions quickly. We're in Europe. You're stuck for months, if not years of paying off employees that may no longer be necessary. I learned from the economists that the European governments assume the payroll costs for furloughed workers. Not so here. We know this. In contrast, the people's incomes with unemployment benefits are supported by the states. There are laws you pay unemployment. Insurance ahead of time in case of layoffs. And the as the Economist writes, the reallocation of labor from dying industries to up incoming ones happens at speed that would describe your work. Exactly Chris of the workers that you have around the world. The recruits that you are come to you come from industries that are other, struggling or have been displaced or no longer have a Ah, high growth period at this moment, and they moved to where the jobs look better. Did they not have that ability in Europe to move from the slow older industries to the new ones? They have the ability to move as an employee from job to job. But the industry's if you look at what's used, as Ah example, France many of the industries whether it be Manufacturing or physical infrastructure or others. It can be very difficult, very costly. So many of these nations in Europe have built such a cost of doing business. That even California, New York would wink at and say, Maybe that's a little bit too much have gone so far that smart companies tend to navigate around those and try to have operations and more agile countries. If you look at Europe, specifically the differences in doing business between the UK and Ireland being much more like the US versus the rest of Europe. Being muchmore socialist in nature. It's very, very difficult to grow businesses and parts of Europe because they're very, very high cost of doing business. I puzzled too. They make much to do about the Sunbelt states having the spread of Corona virus, which is slowing. According to the Economist, reporting,

Jungle story that was really good Anyway for we're on open show tonight for 1092266 80. We have mark on the line. We're gonna go to him in a second. But if you want to call in and ask a question that is something pertaining to an issue important, too. You like Rob was asking earlier about Roth conversions. Maybe you have a different topic. Maybe it's a state planning. Maybe it's income taxes. Maybe it's investments like Mark wants. Talk about investment category Or maybe it's education planning. Maybe it's insurance policies. Maybe get an insurance agent telling you to do something and you're wondering. Is this really a great idea and so forth? So if you want to call in for 1092266 80 I'm going to mark in Reisterstown. Mark, how can we help you? Oh, thank you very much real quickly. By the way, I did a little assessment myself. And I got about 7 15 pennies to go. But no, actually, you know, with the market conditions and everything right now, and you know, I've read different, uh, papers on some so called war on cash, and I've always been into physical, gold and silver. And in the past, I've always been, you know, told exactly what percentage. I should be investing in that part of my overall portfolio. But being how it is right now, and it seems as if we're just printing money Right now. That's not really backed by anything diver that maybe it might be time to increase my percentage of investment of physical Golden's silver silver when we've been thoughts on that. We've been doing that since Richard Nixon. So we went to a total Fiat monetary systems into Richard Nixon in 1974 was it? I think one of those years in that general timeframe, so oh, and we haven't had any significant inflation We did in those first few years, but it wasn't because they went to a Fiat monetary system. It was because of the stupid Federal Reserve chairman that was running the place. What was his name Burns. I think in the 19 seventies and then along comes along comes Paul Voelker, appointed by Jimmy Carter and Paul Voelker said Enough of this craziness. Let's get our monetary system back in. Right order and he did, and he broke the back of inflation and began the long period of deflation that we've been experiencing over the last 30 some years. So you know, I agree with you that sooner or later The excessive borrowing of the developed world. Countries will come back to bite them and that the people who are the economist who are saying that a government like ours or Japan or Europe, etcetera can borrow unlimited amounts of money forever known as modern monetary theory. I think that it might work for a year for 10 years for 20 years for 40 years, I don't know, but sooner or later, it's going to be a disaster. I just don't know how long it's going to be. I don't expect it to be any time in the next five years or so. Very good. Well, thank you very much. I appreciate that very much. Right, Mark. You take care. You know, there's a lot of good reasons why, you know the accidents of quote unquote. Excessive borrowing of the federal government is not going to be an issue any time soon. Well, and if we didn't have it, we'd all be very unhappy right now. Yes, absolutely Correct. You know that? If we wanted to go back to the great Depression of the 19 thirties, then we would be very unhappy because that's what happened during the 19 thirties. You know Smoot Holly, which was the de globalization of the United States, where we put tariffs on every country had a big impact on what happened in the Great Depression. But the biggest thing that happened is banks collapsed. And the money supply. The country collapsed by over 30% over the next three years. And they didn't have any tools to deal and money supply is should be growing. Always think of it like a Aaron of balloon. As long as air keeps going in the balloon, the balloon keeps getting bigger and bigger. If all of a sudden you stopped blowing air into the balloon, the balloon stops. But if you start to let that air out the bloom contracts, and that's what happened to our economy during the 19 thirties is that they contracted the money supply over three years by over 30%, and you saw the effects that it had. So that's why that's why when you have these issues like 2008 in 2020 the Federal Reserve steps in and expands the money supply in an artificial way, because you have to because air's coming out of the blue too fast, right? We just have to get better about easing ourselves off of it when we don't need it. Absolutely after they have to figure that out, then that is defending. Try to get used to printing. It's so much fun to spend. I even like to spend. Yeah, I understand. But, you know, One of the interesting facts of the US government that most people don't talk about is that Japan's the balance sheet of the of the Japanese government the you know. Is 100% of their GDP. The balance sheet of the European government is 50% or more their GDP The balance sheet of the United States. Federal Reserve of our GDP is only about 25 to 30%. And you know, you would say, Well, isn't it better to have a bigger balance sheet? And you know no because Federal Reserve's make money out of thin air. So if they have already created 100% of their GDP and cash in Japan right now, I don't know how far they can really go beyond their GDP. You know, Whereas we've only created 30% of our overall GDP in the make believe money in the Federal Reserve. I guess that the best way to put its we believe we believe money. Let's go to Jean in Colombia. Jean How can we help you talk to me a little bit about the amount of FBI CIA insurance you have on a given account. And how it changes you friends are going up. Lock down $250,000 for a CD. Write my name on ly $250,000 covered, Okay. What if I had my wife to the title? 500,000 and for each beneficiary listed. So if you have one Ben Fishery still just 500,000. But if you put two beneficiaries Dan, then it's 500,000. It's 2 50 for the two beneficiaries per account holder, So it's 500,000 for those two beneficiaries for you 500,000 for those two beneficiaries for your wife would be a million dollars and that's per bank..

I was not a fan of that particular letter but it was correct. And that was exactly what we have seen. Senior European government officials say they believe that Mr. Trump as he said, Thursday, does not want a major war in the Middle East. Let's rephrase that does not want another major war in the Middle East now another. But they also believe that Mr. Bolton does the office site. A your times article written by Mr. bulletin in two thousand fifteen when he was out of office, entitled to stop Iran's bomb bomb, Iran, even though there is absolutely not a shred of evidence that Iran is working on developing a nuclear bomb.

Why they say what Tehran who supreme leader regards Washington as -plicitly in any event casino or even value any deal done with the president who just abandoned a nuclear deal.

Now, President Trump is pulling out the big guns in a move that could cripple. China's biggest technology company. The White House has blacklisted while away this BAAs. It's access to critical supplies in the US. The move could disrupt the rollout of critical five G networks around the world. Joining me in the London studio greenback intelligence analyst, Matthew blocks. Matthew, good morning to you. The it seems the Chinese. I taking these incredibly seriously. Don't they the decision by the White House to blacklist one way and the action, we will take him by President Trump in the last twenty four hours with the executive order. What kind of impact does this have on while ways ability to grow ability to supply, fight, Jeanette works? I mean, I guess, in not much, but, you know, they, they built a supply chain for their products which relies heavily on these components. And so they can't quickly move to turn to supplies. Then quickly their stocks, will run out and they'll start to kind of struggle to kind of on a commitments, they've got with Toko for ages around the world. So they've hinted that their plan Bs but, you know, it's going to take some time, I think for them to kind completely replace with technology from the US, and the US has been putting a little pressure on allies and others to follow their lead into ramp-up criticism of one away into block while away from five. Gene. Update is we haven't yet heard definitively from the UK government, for example about that. Approach outlook towards way. So the most of the European governments taking a softer stance in the US that, yes, they want to be very careful about, what kind of technology supplies involved in critical networks. But I think most European governments right now kind of feeding that, that can be managed and a trade off here, the European governments won't European operators to be pushing head with five G. And they recognize that way is a leading supplier of technology and five G and say without while away the approaches, a struggle, attract actually, deliver on those kind of technology pollution ambitions, that governments have them. So I think most European government is taking a bit of a balance just let you can have have this way in some of your network, but you have others tradeoff that most governments in Europe, a happy to take just looking at the performance of some, you know, you might think this would be unashamedly positive for the next American milky rivals way. But, you know, yesterday, percentage change not care that the stock is actually down by twelve point six percent versus the European stock market, which is up by twelve percent. It surprises me that we don't see more. At least the market testing that idea that investment thesis. Eiriksson has better and certainly earlier in the year when both Ericsson Nokia were kind of presenting that outlooks for five G the messaging from Wrexham was much more positive. And I think that, that, that's not that much surprise, because they have they have a much stronger position globally, in running, and building Mabel networks.

Amazon's made a big push to kind of accelerate delivery times in the US and globally to improve service. So it's kind of potentially a show, of course the bows, not just for people at just eat. But for kind of and those kind of guys that are all we're trying to kind of extend factually back into where Emerson's originally from into kind of product.

"But you know, there's one hundred there's one hundred percent that they would not be able to regulate away. Again, apple actually cares about your privacy. Because it doesn't it doesn't make money off. If your privacy of your information that you send to it. It makes money off the know people are angry that the phones are expensive I'll pay for the phones being expensive. So that my information is private, but I just I it's a really difficult situation to 'cause you're absolutely right, Laura. They do not understand enough of technology to do anything about it. And I think that those that do understand technology really don't care because they've just been given a big fat check. And they're in a rubel enjoying their vacation while the else has to suffer from it. So I I liked Laurie. What you were talking about. And I took a media literacy class back in college. And that was one of the things that we talked about is how the film industry came along and self regulated because they were worried that the. Government was going to step in and at the time. The government was working on had had pushed through packages of regulation for different forms of media broadcast and all those things and so at the time it sort of felt more. Right there. This is the next thing that's going to get regulated. So we should probably do this before the government steps in kind of thing. And I think what we see. Now, what we see these days is over and over again be it because of money or because ultimately it does go back to that. No matter what but sort of because of money, or because of even know where to start they sort of keeping their hands off of it. And I think that there's not in in the tech world. There's not that urgency that the that the movie industry had to go. If we don't do something then the government's going to and that stinks. Because it does mean that they can continue to sort of be smug about everything I think that what the UK has done in GDP are for the for the sake of GDP are that has been a boon for everybody. Because of the the way that those regulations are put into place in how it? Makes it so that it's easier for all of us to download our data. Even if we aren't in the UK a lot of companies went ahead and turned that on that. That's an example of where I wear I think that governments go wrong. Yes. It's you you get download your data. But just like I was saying so what what does that mean that I get to download the data? You don't get to stop the companies from continuing to collect it by by, you know, opting out you don't get to find out what the companies are doing with your data once they've collected. So it's like that's a huge step in the right direction. But it's also if the government right in if if the European government was like what we did our share we fixed everything. Now, everybody's privacy is secure. That's wrong. It's that is not the case because they're going to just keep collecting data. And then we can download a report that we've barely even understand out a read, and you know, people like you, and I are going to download it. Maybe understand some of it people like my mom. They don't even know that they can download it. So it's still it's still happening. It's still going on. It's not being regulated. It's these the like like Georgia saying these criminal activities are still taking place because even with GDP are all that's doing is just like exposing that they're doing it. But not and then finding them, and then they're just they continue to do it. I think that's a fair. That's a fair, you know, criticism of GDP because. Yeah, it's it is not the end all for for what needs to be done as we continue to see these companies..

So why are these European governments trying to? Help iran. Well, I don't think they want Iran getting a nuclear weapon on top of all the activity that you just mentioned.
