"He came to Iran in early 2016 and the and the very agreement that the New York Times is presenting and something new was first announced in 2016 by Xi Jinping on the heels of the lake. So exactly what that you know that that agreement is one of these agreements that keeps getting announced and then doesn't really come fully into fruition. Wait. We have to wait. We have to wait and see what comes of this. What they were. What the Iranians were trying to do by leaking it to The New York Times was to scare the Americans into saying that if you continue with your efforts To shut down the you know, Tio Ah ah! To shut down the Iranian nuclear program. You keep on the maximum pressure and you work to shut down this are ya to reimpose the arms embargo. Then things were going to get worse for you. So really, what you should be doing is engaging in diplomacy on what's gonna happen is that the next week the United States was going to put in the Security Council resolution to extend the arms embargo. The arms embargo is being lifted under the terms of the way, and this means What we're talking about. Here is a conventional arms embargo, which has nothing to do with nuclear weapons. But the Obama administration as a sweetener, threw that into the into the deal with the with the Iranians. And under the terms of the way the arms embargo is being lifted. The Trump Administration is coming in and saying no, it should be extended. I think that was gonna be vetoed by the Russians and possibly the Chinese. Or maybe the Chinese will just let the Russians Vito and the Chinese were staying. Whatever. It's not gonna go anywhere, and then the next the next stage in September, we're going to start debating whether to go to snap back. And then re imposed through the snapback mechanism. That's the That's the mechanism in the in the U. N resolution that recognized the Iran nuclear deal. There's a provision in there that allows any participant in the way To reactivate all of the all of the U. N Security Council resolutions that used to be operative on the on the Iranian nuclear program, making it original and international law so That's what that's what the next month is The debate over step Michael Durant is a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute.

"John, this is John Bats show. Good evening. I welcome knocking the whole line conference the president's major American Jewish organizations and we look immediately to Combination that promises trouble that is the People's Republic of China already and bad odor around the world for his brutality towards the Uighurs of Xinjiang, and the Chinese Chinese people of Hong Kong but also now linking up with a predatory regime of Iran. We welcome Michael Durant, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute to help us with this. Tangle of a new axis of evil. Mike is the author, most recently of a new article at the Tablet, China's emerging Middle Eastern Kingdom. With his colleague, Peter Row. I also mentioned that Mike is most interestingly, the author of Ike's Gamble America's rise to dominance in the Middle East. Published several years passed but of great interest as we become more complicated about the Middle East, Michael Very good evening to you, China investing in Iran, okay? They're both predatory regimes these days. And so it makes certain amount of sense. But what does China get out of it? Given Iran's collapsing economy, and I mentioned most recently Serious labor problems in the oil sector of Iran. Good evening to you, Mike. Hi. Good evening. Thanks for having me Well, I think China gets a number of things out of this. They want to keep Iran alive. The extensive they can. Because they're using Iran and Russia as well as stalking horses in the Middle East to weaken the American security system. There's a contradiction in the middle of Chinese policy. On the one hand, China is benefits from the American order in the Middle East. Because it's so dependent on Middle Eastern oil, and it likes the fact that the United States is going to keep AH, keep order in the region, so China could just come in and extract resource is But the contradiction is that China also wants to supplant the United States eventually because it's in a global struggle for supremacy on DH. It's been a real hard power competition with the United States. In the Western Pacific. So it's not possible that you could be in a hard power competition in one part of the world and then be totally happy with us in another part of the world, So we have manages this contradiction is it is from the distance. It supports the Russians and the Iranians who do the dirty work on the ground. Well, it doesn't have to get its hands dirty itself. Malcolm this China have the military capability of projecting its power in the Middle East in the Gulf in the Mediterranean. Or will it rely on clients and is that what's behind largely the 25 year strategic agreement between China and Iran? It's it's it's going. It's increasingly projecting its power into the into the region. China has developed what's called it string of pearls. These are these are on troponin along and see lines of communication stretching from Hong Kong into the Indian Ocean, going up through the Red Sea to the port of Sudan. Right now. It has already turned one of those commercial centers into a military base. And that's in Djibouti, Djibouti, which overlooks the Baba, London straight. That's the straight that governs that governs the approaches to the Suez Canal through the Red Sea. That's a that's an incredibly important chokepoint for the world oil trade. Because, among other things, all of the oil that goes by taker from the Persian Gulf through the Suez Canal to Europe goes through there. They're also building another port. On in Pakistan called Gwadar and glad our looks out onto the Gulf of Oman, and it will it will position the Chinese to control the choke point of the Strait of war moves. Attn. Same time. They're going through a massive naval expansion. They already have more ships in total than the United States does. That number is goingto their superiority in numbers is going to increase dramatically over the next decade. And in time they're going. They're going to become more powerful and more sophisticated as well. So we're looking. We're on the cusp of a hard power competition with China in the Middle East. And in the meantime that that relationship with Iran allows a rare AH allows China indirectly to project power into the Gulf Mike the incident along the Himalayan frontier, most in most recent China crossing the line of actual control, according to Delhi. And Delhi pushing back hard, saying there will be no compromise. Is that a threat to the China ambition to open a route a highway route in a sea route to the Middle East? I don't think it's a threat to opening the route, You know, the route that you're talking about. The The land route to the Middle East is the China Pakistan Economic Corridor right. China's closest military ally is Pakistan and there turning Pakistan into a corridor. It goes down to the port Gwadar that I was that I was talking about. They're going to turn Gwadar into a transshipment hub. And they will. They will have pipelines, rail lines and and highways from broad are up to Xinjiang, where the Uighurs are. That's the reason that China is carrying out genocidal campaign against the Uighurs. Uighurs are in the way of China's Ah, ruthless advance to the Middle East. I don't think that India can stop that. The good news here is that is that is that very muscular, aggressive policies of China will likely and I put the put the emphasis on the word likely. Push India into an alliance with US designed to contain China. Malcolm We know that the U. N arms embargo on Iran is due to end in October, so Does the Chinese agreement with Iran relate to this? I know that there were reports about the Pentagon report on China. Russia's projected sales. How will others react to it? And do you see that the agreement It's creating a preemptive arms sales framework between China and Iran after the expiration of the embargo. What we have to take all of these reports, especially the report that was in the New York Times about the nature of the Chinese Iranian relationship. We have to take it with a grain of salt. Because it was leaked by. It's not a completed agreement. It was leaked by the Iranians to the New York Times both the Iranians and The New York Times We're trying to make the argument, which is pretty silly, actually, that Trump's maximum pressure campaign is what created this alliance between China and Iran. This alliance. This alliance started with the men of the was put in place in 2015 She Jinping planned a visit to Iran..

Why does Donald Trump want to ban TikTok?

Why does Donald Trump want to ban TikTok?

"For those who are blissfully unaware late last week, us? President Donald Trump announced that he would ban Tiktok and furthermore he said he would block Microsoft from taking over the APP which was apparently a deal that was in the works Then he's back flipped and given Microsoft, forty five days to complete the transaction and he's, but now he signed that the US Treasury should get a copy of the deal which seems weird in a country, which is terrified of socialism so like That's a basic recap, but there's so many little weird bonkers nuances to this Britain I actually bret benefit and I actually read about published on risky Biz in the Linke's quakes showing. But look, let's let's get the conversation going now and we'll start with you, alex, know they're probably some national security ramifications or concerns around APPs lactic TIKTOK. But why do we get the impression? That's not what's driving this whole thing? Well, you make it then. Prussian, because the president of the United States continues to change his justification of what he's doing is making a national data protection law up on the fly on twitter. and. So you know it's it's quite possible that watching what's going on that. You'd reasonably conclude that this isn't a well-considered change in policy, but perhaps part of the ongoing trade war and yell perhaps a mix of trump's anger at what would normally be protected speech against him on Tiktok and partially to distract from the fact that at the same day that he made that announcement, it was announced that the United States economy shrunk by nine percent in just one quarter. And so you know all those things together. Is really polluting this process now that being said I, think there are some interesting risks here in there is something we have to talk about about Chinese APPS and the data of Democracies sitting servers available to the PR. But if you're going to do that for my perspective Tiktok is probably not even the top five or top ten companies. I'd be concerned about there's a lot of Chinese companies that are much more critical inner city and much more important data than they are. This seems. To be completely driven by trump and not by some kind of process and either the White House or or the agencies were, there can rationally considering these things. Now look you and I, we have access to gripe bonds that most people don't actually have access to. A wonderful part of the job. I mean, my gripe tells me that this is not going through the usual processes. I mean the US investigation into Tiktok did start last year. Right? This is a legit sign. Lee Rooted investigation, but it's the escalation since like last week, that is just the just the mad pot, and as you say I mean why the hell out we talking about we chat and that's that's a curly a one to a strategy. I know that there are politicians here. Who Use we chat as a way to communicate with Chinese Australians, for example, right? So that whole thing is a can of worms and I think blocking chat in. A, lot of places around the world is going to be a real loser, right? So that's maybe one reason people don't WanNa. Touch it. But yeah, this is a very complicated. Nuanced issue that has just been. The whole thing strange. Isn't it? It is so syphilis. The law that we're talking about here is was really built to protect kind of the American industrial base around defense. Rightly, you have an important helicopter manufacturer and you don't WanNa get bought by Iran. That's what cities is for. It has never been used as a back door for data protection framework right here. In the United States, we do not have data protection framework. There is no law that says you cannot ship social security numbers of Americans to a Chinese company. Nothing prevents that in theory now, obviously, we have A. Rules that have been created through FTC decisions and such. But overall, we don't have a framework for deciding what is really important Pi and work in it set up, and so to create that out of whole cloth, using a stiffest interpretation is really probably the worst way to handle what is eight really really complicated problem, and like you said, there's other companies put away the top and I think for my perspective, we chat the top Vermont for me. Right is used by the entire chinese-speaking Gaspara. Anybody who has any in China uses it, and that includes people in Singapore people in Hong Kong people in Taiwan. So lots of these places where Chinese intelligence is really interesting. What's going? We chat has become. Part of People's daily lives, and unlike tiktok, it carries very sensitive data. Right? People run their companies. All we chat, they have their personal communications reach at the. They probably arrange affairs and do things that are very black maleable on we chat and there evidence from Citizen Lab, and some other folks who have done worth that demonstrate that you can kind of get side channel information out of we chat that demonstrates that they are watching and they are doing at least scanning of certain phrases, even communications that go. I. Mean I m point, I. think that's well known and well established that we chat is certainly used by the EPA to do surveillance, right? Like that is the reason. So successful in the reason that they can block other communications, funnel people through it, but this brings us to an important question. There are some concerns that say censorship on TIKTOK. For example, there was a case where they would deleting videos that referred to. Human Rights abuses occurring in Xinjiang in in China, right, and that turned into a into massive Khufu four. Good reason. Don't get me wrong Let's not pretend for a second, the PSE or a bunch of fluffy. Fluffy pandas. Okay. That is that is certainly not the case. But let's, be real. Trees names for them. But let's look. Let's be be real here. Right? Like the hottest security angle to this, right? It's it's. It's hard to make a case that it's. It's a terribly dangerous APP now when the United States blocked the sale of grinder. To to an offshore concern I, mean I think that was another Chinese company that wanted to buy that. Absolutely. Anyway, near when they wanted to buy a company that track Global Hotel reservations again, that it's type of information is incredibly valuable to US intelligence in two, thousand, six, the US government's blocked checkpoint, which is an Israeli from blind buying sauce fly because source for. Through. SNORT had deep in US government networks. The right in all of these situations where this has happened before you can point to a single reason and you can say this is why. Absent here,

Welcome jackets. Good to have you here. Thank you Robert. Appreciate that glad to be here. You've kind of an entire industry that's really come to be known as performance air conditioning. Vintage Air was founded longtime ago now in nineteen seventy six primarily to serve builders who wanted to bill. Really Cool. Hot Rods Right. Talk about how you got to where you are I. Understand you started rich and early age well, yes. I started reading a hot rod magazine and it was hot rod magazine, an Rod and custom which were once at the time that everybody was reading. It had got me interested in old cars and I was about probably thirteen isn't it? Funny? We're in it always starts Yeah. Well thirteen years old I think so long story short my mom my dad was an air force and he was at this particular time was overseas along so she would take me out looking for old cars driving around we drove by one old junkyard that had some pretty nice cars and for Junkyard, and there was a little Mali sedan sitting right there and so. With that one and that started it really which pay fifty bucks hundred bucks for no one hundred dollars ran and drove off. There's a lot of must have been a nice car. It was decent in Iran in my mom felt that was important. So she said that'd be good one it actually Lebron's than I thought well, mode will be in their law anyway but. What did you put in that thing? Jag. Let Me Guess Flathead v Eight maybe something like that. Yeah. The first walk was a mercury by then the mercury and the flatheads kind of really on their last legs so cheap and a guy out of Mercury, my dad and military, and so I could go out to the base hobby shop at work on it therapies they have the tools and equipment wilmer stuff anyway he was out there and he was pulling that thing out and he was gonna put an old set I'm looking at that thing going he san now I gotta get rid of this thing and I'm going hey, wait a second I ask him what he'd takes Twenty. Five Bucks for so. Two fifty, five key begins Mercury, flat. It sounds like deal and boy that was the bee's knees back. Then there really was water fun car that must have been what happened after those formative years he did some college worker well. And as going along I kept working on our of data as we went along than mercury got lost and I put a pontiac over at bow the eight. Okay. Okay. And I use that to go to school I drove that car was my only car and so yeah I, I went to school studied industrial design. Guy Down College it was Vietnam era so. I joined ROTC after I got out of college I went right into the air force that was pretty ambitious endeavor especially at the time you fly planes her through for a little bit and then I did other stuff when emir force well, it sounds like an interesting stint obviously got out your passion for hot rods did not diminish in the lease no it. Always Hot Rod Guy, was there an a Ha moment that you had that said, he wait a minute I'm going to get serious about this. Well, when I got out of the Air Force, I had to make a decision. I think a lot of people that go in the air force consider staining and making a career out of thought about that for just a second and pretty much decided that I wanted to do. It always wanted to do I told my mom when I was about thirteen or fourteen. I told her not WANNA build parts for Cars I decided. Well, if I wanted to do that, this long should stick with that I started looking around. What can I do at that point? Pete shakes had started a year before that. There was a couple of chassis guys out there now and I've thought well I don't want to go jump in the middle something someone is already doing so look can I do that's new made any backup just a second I had started an air conditioning repair installation sinner right after I got out of the Service in seventy three head that stuff laying around so I thought hey, street rod nationals coming up here in August August load up the van take a bunch of stuff up there and made three unique parts to have up there for that deal were no condensers at that time in the condenser is the part that goes in front of the radiate sure that support that takes up space and. A hot rod that could be a sore thumb and of course, in those days, it was all about thirty four. It's some people would say it's still. Also, we'll get to that I designed and had a company make me condenser company up in Minnesota. Make me a condenser that was vertical so it would fit that format because there was nothing like that available number one that's right that narrow narrow grill and the yeah it had to fit just right? Yeah. There were narrow ones but they laid down the width of the cars that were going on now. That's right. So we did that and then nine designed a compressor mounting bracket for a small black Chevy because there were more sponsorship, he's going in at that time anything else. So the hoods were narrow on hot rod so it couldn't hang out sides like they did in the newer cars. So that was the second thing we did that bracket and then the third thing we did is I made a mold. been working with my hands long enough that I just figured hands I can make them all and I can make my own plastic evaporator out in.

The Why and How of Self Care by Randi Kay of Naturally Randi Kay

"The why and how of Self Care Iran decay of Naturally Randy K. dot com. As you can gather, I think a lot about taking care of yourself and I care a lot about it. I WANNA shout about it from the rooftops I wanna hug you and bless you with self care blessings. I WanNa grab your shoulders, shake you while I yell how important it is in your face. But. I shall take a more humble right in a blog route at the moment and a little deeper into why it's important and some simple ways to get started. Talk to yourself. Our bodies are constantly communicating the different body systems working together the body language we exude or verbal conversations, but one of the most important conversations that we tend to neglect his consciously checking in with ourselves. I wrote a few posts ago about negative self-talk and start gently changing that conversation with ourselves. But along with that, there is the honest feedback conversation because something like this hey body mind or soul how're you doing today? What do you need? How can I help this whole day after? And then taking the time to listen for me some of those answers tend to be something like this Mo-. Hey, girl thanks for checking in. May I'm doing pretty good but my name and upper back heard a little I think he slept Kinda funny. You should do those and neck and shoulder stretches that I like Owen though he totally loved those cupcakes from Nicole's last night. My Tummy hurts meet a little lighter today Okay Mogi cool and by the way you are the bees. It may seem silly and he may feel like you've got a little goal homes Megan Combo going but it's K- keep going with it and you will come to cherish that daily inner dialogue I have come to not being able to function without it. Movement does your body good. This may seem like an obvious one but your body needs to move and yes, it moves all the time but we need that time of intentional movement, the benefits of exercise and stretching are endless and yes, we all know them. But seriously folks if we don't stretch and move and tend to our aches and pains, it can lead to incredibly negative and serious consequences. A favorite quote of mine that is known in the Yoga therapy world is quote if you listen to your body whisper, then you don't have to hear it scream and quote. And that touches on my first daily Combo point as well. Those first twinges and whispers of body discomfort is our bodies way of warning us saying, Hey, let's do something about this or else is going to get worse and lead to a torn rotator cuff or knee injury or heart attack or who knows what else. One of my favorite quotes is by core fusion co founder Fred veto quote. Embrace movement as an essential part of being alive and quote. We were created, sit at desks and stare at screens for eight plus hours a day. I'll save the soapbox for another time. But Self Care is how he counter that ever increasing way of life. And if you are up and moving for most of your day, self cares how we create some stillness and more therapeutic movement inhabits. Fill your own cup I save something to pour. In Our culture, there is glorification of busy. There's a glorification of sacrifice and struggle while I think being busy and sacrificing and struggling or important parts of life in their own ways is gonNA balance of heard almost every excuse in the book as to why people can't do self care is so hard with kids they need me I never get a moment to myself. I don't have time at work. So tired by the end of the day, my dog ate my homework. Okay. Not that last one but they all. Sound, like silly excuses to me what people don't understand, and this is usually the self care point that makes me wanNA shake people yell in a loving way. Of course, is that by taking time for yourself every day even if it's just five minutes of debriefing and grounding will make you a better partner parent friend employer employee everything you need to fill your own cup. If you really want to be the person you want to be in the world, you must take those sacred moments to yourself to take good care. And not only will you be able to serve others better you'll have valuable coping tools like healthy body, healthy breathing habits, self love, and confidence etc to deal with stresses in Traumas that will happen in life. In Summary To put it all onto a sweet-smelling glossy package check in with yourself daily to receive guidance on how to move and stretch and care to yourself.

How I Built Resilience: Taha Bawa of Goodwall

"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during such a disruptive time and today we're GonNa hear from Ta the CO founder of Good Wall Good Wall is a social network that connects high school and college graduates with jobs and scholarships. Today Good Wall has raised over sixteen million dollars with more than a million users on the platform I. Spoke with Taha, from his company headquarters in Switzerland where he gave me a rundown of goodwill's mission for people who've never heard of goodwill just tell us how how does it work? It's essentially a mobile platform that's designed for the next generation. We started off with high school students helping them build up their first profile showcase themselves in a way that I'm accentuates their extracurricular activities in particular, connect them to opportunities mostly scholarships in colleges and all. This happens within a positive and supportive community. Over time, we've grown with our members into the college and young professional space. Our whole goal is to level the playing field, maximize the potential of as many people as possible. So it's been compared to linked in is that a fair comparison I? Think there are similarities however, we're really focused on on our part, which is this next generation starting as early as sixty and guiding them through almost Sherpa in. Them through the future of earning learning and those opportunities. There are various features that we have that they don't, and we're really focus from a user experience perspective, and then from a community perspective, it's it's very different posts don't work here. You wouldn't find students talking about being on the chess team being on the robotics team being on etc etc on goodwill mean if you are, let's say eighteen years old and you're interested in applying to college. What does it look like you go to? While you create a profile for yourself and and then what you're going to goodwill, you help yourself our initial early adopters were mostly international school students who maybe didn't have as much guidance as others or since the US who maybe didn't have as much guidance from their parents from college counselors it come on. Here's he would other people are doing they'd be matched with colleges and universities and. Also. With scholarships based on their data on their profiles and then they'd be able to connect with like minded youth. So we had this girl based out of Jordan who was really into robotics science and unfortunately no one really around her who had that those similar interests and she was able to find others like her in the US connected Internet. NASA did incredible things afterwards actually many of our students have gone bound exclusive opportunities at. Like Oxford and others that we've partnered with an. Super fulfilling perspective. Yeah. It's really caused US checking it out last night and it's it's a little bit like if you didn't have a mentor or a guidance counselor like here you go. Yeah definitely I think a lot of early adopters were privileged in the sense that they had a lot of ambition and maybe they went to good schools. But over time we've especially with last year we've really. Put a lot of effort and a lot of energy towards helping youth who are maybe a little under privileged that privilege is actually not necessarily one hundred percent linked to financial situation but it can be for example, we're doing now with UNICEF death and other organizations in Africa for example, is running programs they are and were really helping you bring out their ideas, build up their confidence show who they. are in connect opportunities and it's been really really fulfilling and we expect to do more underrepresented communities in the US. For example, we're doing more and more there. That's where the biggest room impact is. At the end of the day, we are a social enterprise and it's very fulfilling to help youth who go to elite schools and connect them to lead universities and colleges, but it's even more fulfilling. Even more important for us to step in where the impact Delta's the biggest for, for example, youth in Africa who insert African countries that just don't have any exposure don't have opportunity. Don't have the guidance but do have access to a phone and can has result go through. So we're really trying to do more there in particular and are you started this company in two thousand fourteen with your brother? Where did the idea come from? So my it was my brothers idea both of us were born in Switzerland we lived in Iran the US came back to Switzerland. Our parents used to work in the humanitarian sector. My father worked for or Serb refugees around thirty years, and we experienced a lot growing up. We was like quite a contradiction going skiing on the weekend in in a very affluent privileged, no bubble in Switzerland whereas at the same time, we'd go in summer vacation and give candy out to refugee kids who are age your ten eleven and that that really did shake US quite a bit in throughout our upbringing we realized that we are. We are I'm here not because I'm smart but because I was lucky osborne that could have been born two doors down in that, my life would have been very different and I'm confident because of the experiences I had rather than because I'm innately able to do so and that's really what pushed us to say we were lucky in this sense what would happen if we were able to give those opportunities in terms of particularly experiences. So education is one thing traditional education is one thing but particularly experiences to millions of youth around the world what would happen how can we change things and that's where we thought it has to be mobile first it has. To be a digital solution and it has to be able to tackle millions and we wanted to go a step further. We said it's good to maximize one's potential but hopefully, we can do that in a win. We're very idealistic in that sense in a way that it maximizes or improved society as well or impacts society positively, which is our mission statement that if we have enough people that are exposed to not only improving themselves but as so often it's a form of education knowing what's out there if I hadn't gone to refugee camps or if I didn't have the background where my parents are Richard from Sri Lanka, would I really be so inclined to How this positive impact who knows I did have that chance I view that as an opportunity to give those opportunities in showcase through volunteering through being aware through connecting to people from different backgrounds. Hopefully, we can move the world forward I. Think it's needed now more than ever, right? Yeah. For Sure Tyler, the business for a second I think you've got around fifty employees the world you've got offices in Switzerland, the US Germany Serbia the Philippines mean you're growing you've got presumably some cash runway but these are tough economic times. I mean Lincoln just laid off a thousand people, their record numbers of people in the US for unemployment. So first of all. How is your revenue been in your business been impacted by the global economic slowdown? Yeah. I mean when it happens I think the first week where we started notice he was getting really serious I. Remember it. The first thing we did was we we had a board meeting and we talked about, okay what's our cash situation and let's make sure we get through this are along a be while maintaining the team for two reasons. One is like you don't want. Downward debt spiral. But also because we have the opportunity to have real impacting this time if we make the changes in adapt effectively, but we won't be able to do so if we don't have the team to do it so we've actually hired over the past few months and we've actually grown over the past few months and we've adapted to do. So the first week was really about scenario planning getting through that after that, we assume the worst but we. Ourselves decided. Well, there's definitely GONNA be less demand for recruitment is definitely less hires which hurts us which hurts our users or are members and we said, okay how can we can we help because if they come on in the no jobs? Well, it's a very bad experience, but it's also it's hurting us. So what we did was we put we put together this program better together and other challenges where youth can develop work experience at the end of it. They get certificates that show that they've accomplished these different challenges participated in it, and at the end, it can be used as work experience towards all of our partner companies. So it's actually giving them something to do some hope, and at the same time, this is generating revenue for us as one example of revenue for us. Another example is just before the crisis a part of our model is we work with large partners and a couple of these large partnership so. Leading recruitment than leading education routes, stunts or came to a halt. And then I don't know if this is despite coverted or because of covid other opportunities came about we've now partnered over the course of Kobe with market leaders in markets that we are not present in or were very marginally presents and he's actually allowing us to take up extra market share and grow in more significant way to timber onwards. Let. Let me ask you about the demographic that you target. Right I mean and I'm Gonna I'M GONNA use this term Gen Z.. Always cringe when I say because I remember like when I was in my twenties and people talked about Gen-x and their slackers and I would just cringe and you're older people talk about Gen xers and I was like, what are you talking about but just just to make this kind of simple we'll we'll just say Gen Z.. So if you're Gen Z. I'm sorry it's annoying I know. This is a really challenging economic moment if you are in high school now and you're going into college or if you're in college, there's a pretty good chance. You'RE GONNA GRADUATE INTO A world with very few jobs. You know a world that we haven't seen certainly since two, thousand, eight, nine and ten but maybe far far more challenging than that. What's your sense I mean? What do you think I mean do do you think that's that's actually true that that is likely to be the case for the next three, four, five years or more. Yeah, I think whether or not we go through a deep recession with mass unemployment particularly for the Youth USA next three four five years very probable that US at least in the short run or to suffer they're normally the last to be hired the first to be fired and that's justified for various reasons including ethical. Oh, they have less commitments than, for example, someone with kids, but it is incredibly difficult and the mental toil of, let's say an eighteen year old doesn't know what's coming up next we need to be able to be resilient and we need to be able to learn how to learn and adapt because we just don't know what's going to happen. So they could be a second. Downturn there could be a third downturn. It could be sustained downturns and US like across society but in particular for the youth they we have an opportunity they have an opportunity to take this and say, okay, it doesn't kill me. It might make me stronger and I can learn from this develop that resilience that five, six, ten years from now I'm able to deal with the next crisis in a more in a stronger way because I'm going to have to do that and some of the skills that need to be developed in my in my opinion or entrepreneurial thinking that ability to be flexible and resilient we we need to do more though the on just the the these massive stimulus packages and. Is trying to do whatever they can for sure this generation needs the government needs to intervene to be able to organizations needs to be able to intervene to support them to the best of their abilities in terms of developing skills and able to resilient. When we come back in just a moment, I'll talk with Taha about college graduates who will probably face a shrinking job market over the next few years stay with us. I'm Guy Roz and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. For this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age aws dot org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition despite the economic slowdown tie and his company good wall have been able to grow their team and stay afloat. But as jobs are drying up across the globe. Many college graduates are looking for opportunities and can't find any if you're like in your early twenties now and you're looking for an opportunity and you can't find one. What would you recommend a young person? Do Who's who's graduating college is just entering the workforce and is kind of trying out different potential career pass. Is it a good time to just steer clear of the workforce for a while and get some more education which in the US means more debts? What do you think? Yeah, I think. Definitely, trying is important, but this might just be an opportunity to start your own thing. You know a lot of great companies came out of the last crisis because they just couldn't find jobs or that opportunity just wasn't there for your. So maybe start one's own thing. It's never been easier to start a business. It's never been easier to try something new. So if even. If it doesn't work. That's incredible work experience. You know when we talk to HR owes of some of the leading companies in the world, what are they looking for or what were they looking for before the crisis indefinitely after is that ability to be entrepreneurial even if you're working for fortune five hundred, so it can't hurt best case scenario you build something. Amazing. Worst case scenario. Fail and you take those skills and you leverage those skills and you keep your mind active. It's so important from a mental health perspective, keep your mind active and then apply them when the market comes back, which will at one point another opportunity. If if maybe starting yourself isn't it join some friends or join or reach out to small startups definitely volunteer is an opportunity. There are a lot of NGOs are nonprofits that need help or need support right now, build up your work experience gained some experience concrete tangible work experience that differentiates further rather than just having eight twelve months in your resume which are empty. Unfortunately, it might not help financial side and that's where that's where one has to be creative and it's it's just really tough and that's What does the government intervention on that front need to be because there's some that just can't afford to do what I just said, which is volunteer or build your own company because they don't have that safety net that don't have that opportunity in and unfortunately there in we're almost out of ideas because he go back to college, you just talked about extra debt but for some unfortunately are going to have to do it, and that leads to more a more philosophical discussion on what is there so much debt attached to a college education where you know in Switzerland, for example, I paid for my undergraduate I paid around a thousand dollars a year it's a leading edge I mean it's like A. Top universities and so that's a that's another discussion. Yeah. I agree with you I think that this is a moment to be entrepreneurial and it's challenging because you're you're right. I mean not everybody can do that from an employer's perspective you mentioned human resource officers, and by the way you're right I mean a human resource officer is very attracted to an applicant who started a business or try to start up in it failed. Because as you say, that's incredible life and work experience. What are some of the characteristics and sort of ways that quote Unquote Jersey works that might be different from previous generations maybe what their expectations for example? Yeah. It's something that comes up quite often the expectations are are huge I think even if we look at the generation before part of it is there needs to be in there. Always has been this need for grits for determination. I think post Covid, we're going to have very likely incredibly resilient and determined generation I. Think it's it's really great for I mean it's it's very tough. Love going to suffer and I hope I hope it will be as as few as possible but coming out of this generally on the whole, there's good reason to believe that this generation. is going to be really conscious a bit like after World War Two really conscious of financials very conscious sauce how lucky they are how privileged quickly things can change how precarious the society within which we live is actually it's a disease that, yes, it's it's it's it's serious, but it could have been a lot worse. It could have been worse could be one hundred exists and it's brought. Our global economy to its knees and you know we feel like we're often the masters of the universe and that's not just Jeb across demographics and we clearly aren't on I. think a little bit of humidity goes a long way. I love the energy of younger people coming in because their ideas are just so radically different from the way people in my business have have seen their profession What is your advice for employers looking to harness the intellectual power of Gen Z.? Yeah. No, it's a really good question. There basics of management that have been the same for every demographic every every niche within that demographic. It's look at maximizing the potential of the particular individual to different people react differently to different forms of management. Within this can talk about trends, but the ability to give them that chance to express themselves. The need for trust is always been there now definitely, so I mean even more so because they know what they're capable, but then also must not forget they are still with very few years of experience and being able to be there to give feedback to to tell them what they're doing. Right. Tell them what they're doing. Wrong. Both sides is critical. So just leaving someone out there in the world is not going to necessarily need to great results either but giving that safe-space giving that trust and creating an environment of being game your to maximize your potential and the. Direct, order may have worked. They may have been able to get away with it in the past, but some people might be okay with it but generally speaking that's that's especially for for you a lot of potential that's just not conducive for maximizing the potential where do you see your your business and what you're doing in five years from now what do you want it to look like I think for us it's always been about really helping as many youth as possible be as inclusive as we. And so we're ready serving youth in one hundred, fifty countries would like to go deeper in certain areas through our partnerships or load serve more youth in a more significant way. Provide more opportunities just re the best experience. That's probably what's most important. I think that's where we can have where we can make our contribution towards society. That's what we're good at, and now it's just about going to the next level. Yes. It's a challenging period, but we're going to be okay. WE'RE GONNA get out of this, and then it's about really taking this opportunity and doing the best we can because we are in a privileged situation if we were if we were unlucky which is the case for many other start ups I, friends who had term sheets for massive rounds of financing evaporates we hear the stories and then know they're just unlucky. So we're in this lucky position to be able to operate and to be able to do what we're doing. Let's. Make, the most out of it and I think that's our that's kind of our duty and I think that's yeah.

Create Your Business Space Doing the Opposite - MicroFamous Matt Johnson - burst 13

"But. You talk about several things when it comes to shrinking a battlefield. First of all, it's creating niche. If we've talked about at at at length already and then creating that person combining, we've talked a little bit about we can exhibit combined existing niches that can make them more focused and define niche. You also talk about reframing a reposition, but the one element that I really loved that you do is opposition. When it comes to shrinking the battlefield. So. Talk to us about. Using opposition as a way to shrink our battle because I found this fascinating. Yeah and I love this example. I'm really pumped that you asked about that one because there's a bunch of a bunch of ways to create a niche or combining reframing all this stuff, and they're all there on the book, and that's awesome. But the one that's one of my favorites to talk about is doing the opposite, right. So how do you shrink the battlefield? If you'RE GONNA choose to focus on a certain group of people or a specialized segment of your market or something like that? Like how do you? How do you choose the right one? Well there's a great example from Jackie Chan Right Jackie. Chan. Is this martial arts you know really really famous and martial arts, but he is very different from everybody else like if you grew up a Bruce Lee fan like he did. Bruce Lee was the legend of the icon like he will never be surpassed. And how do you grow up as young martial artists? In China, how do you grow up Bruce Lee Shadow and expect to make anything of yourself in that community and in that that line of work? So Jackie Chan looked at that problem and instead of getting discouraged, he looked at it gwent. How can I do the opposite of what Bruce Lee does. Okay. Well, Bruce. Lee. Is Like A mazing. Super Fast, invincible. Well, what if I did the opposite and I was more vulnerable immuno even and showed myself getting her like did my own stunts and like showed showed the real thing happening Bruce Lee's films are pretty straightforward. Right What if we did something comedic? What if we did something that was almost slapstick? So he starts asking themselves these kind of questions. Just how can I do the opposite of the person who is the dominant name or the dominant brand in my space ends up coming up with his own blend in crates, his own genre. Basically of this kind of con- comedic martial arts. I don't even know what you'd necessarily call it But he invents his own fighting style that goes along with that expands into movies, ends up being like one of the highest paid actors of all time. One of the biggest stars in the world. And it all started by doing the opposite. And we can do the same thing right whether you are the florist whether you are a brick and mortar. Business owner whether your real estate agent whether you're coach consultant, which is the world that Iran and more taking what you know think about you know again, contrasting with Gary v like if you're in that space and you WANNA teach people how to market their business. Good luck. Just going on being another Gary v because you end up just being overshadowed by him and delivering the same message to the same people. got. Gary. V. So what are they? What are they need you for? But if you go out and you do the opposite, it gives you a chance to cut through with a message that actually speaks really really deeply to a smaller group of people and plus fun like figuring out how do the opposite you end up coming up with some really fun and interesting combinations. He may end up creating a niche that you dominate for the next thirty years. It's really

Key issues as big tech CEOs face Congress

"As we're talking right now and over the last couple hours, and just because of the show, I have not had a chance to listen. There's another Very vital hearing that's taking place where the heads of the elite big tech companies Are facing questions from this panel again, you know, with on the make up of obviously Republicans and Democrats, Doug you first and then John, you chime in next How significant is this? That we're seeing. Ah, Apple, and we're seeing Google. And we're seeing Facebook and not just members of those companies, the leaders of those companies facing significant questions. On the power they wield and the fact that the power is seemingly on ly getting bigger by the hour. Well, I think it's very significant on and it's a good thing, of course, that the top officers of the the companies are appearing and responding to these questions, but it's certainly a measure. Off the power that these firms Ah wheeled today and of course, it's a power over the content of the public debate because they have such a gate, keeping Ah ah force. They are such a gate keeping force to determine you know what what can and can't get distributed and that people should have can have access to. And of course, there's all kinds of pressure on them to the prohibit to certain things and to prevent hate speech. And what you know what some people would characterize this hate speech. Others would you know, would characterize as ah. Ah, speaking truth to power and so on. And these are very difficult questions. Ah, and there's danger both in them doing too little and too much at the same time. There's no question that these firms And the technology that they've done so much to advance, you know, has has revolutionized public access and the ability for voices to be heard in a way that surely is Beneficial or potentially beneficial, and we don't want to kill that Golden goose, either. So it's it's an important and challenging issues. John what you think Well, pursuing toe what we began talking about with Attorney General Bar. There seems to be too many speeches and not enough listening. So just in one example. This is ostensibly to talk about the power that this big tech firms have. And I think the more profound problem is miss information that is sent Purposefully, And this is in the news as well, often specifically by foreign agents, be they from Russia or China or Iran or North Korea or other hostile actors. Both state and non state. And yet what seems to be stated, you know by some of the Republicans, they're the aforementioned Jim Jordan. When he had his time said, I'll just cut to the chase big checks out to get conservatives and went into a rant about how the big tech firms are trying to censor conservatives. Not meant in his residence. By the way, John, you know, but yeah, not but not mentioning that about seven out of the top 10. You know, top trending either site. Individuals or institutions on Facebook right now are conservatives. Fox News? Other legislators and you know who have been thwarted his just mid medical misinformation and as an example, the president's son, Donald Trump Jr. You know, Pushing forward already debunked medical information about the cove in 19 and so, you know, I don't think that I think that that issue was not Germaine at all. And it's proven by the readership and by where people go online. But it's once again in this particular instance where someone is trying to disprove a political point, as opposed to really contend what the real issue is and the power That these companies have both in the marketplace in the marketplace of ideas.

Iranian Report Details Chain Of Mistakes In Shooting Down Ukrainian Passenger Plane

"What I think we'll start with was the factual report at the Iranian civil aviation organisation issued regarding the downing of Ukraine International Airlines flight, seven, five two. This is not a final. So. It doesn't have a probable cause. However it had a missile fired upon it and then crashed so I mean that's the 'cause we nobody. factual report lays out the chain of events, and they have wonderful graphic. That is an actual chain in the report. The chain of events that led to the downing. Of PM five two, so basically, this occurred on the early morning hours of January beginning of this year after the Iran military goes on heightened alert because of responses, they're responding with missiles to the killing of Iranian general by the US so tensions are high, the Iranian military takes over the clearance of flights in the area, so they know there are passenger flights. In the area. That, is designed to make sure that a civilian entered doesn't get shot down and that was one of the first steps that didn't work. So what happened was is the aircraft is cleared to depart, and is following a correct trajectory, and we've discussed this in the past as far as looking at ESP data from that particular flight previously as well as all the other flights that left that morning, and there was nothing out of your Neri that the eighty s day was showing us the first chain of events that the Iranian reports out is that they relocated one of the air defense units so basically a missile battery was moved, and they failed to recalibrate it so. What was actually a departure from the southeast? It saw as incursion from the southwest, so very stupid, very minor mistake that had such incredible consequence. Right so at this point. This particular missile operator sees the aircraft as not. A seven thirty, seven, climbing out of Toronto but coming at it from the South West. So it targets the aircraft and then the. Is Supposed to notify the command center of what it sees of what the battery seeing and to get more information authorization authorisation to identify particular target and fire. If necessary, they never got in touch with the command center. And then the operator didn't identify the target as a pasture craft, so have an incorrectly identified target, and not having her back from the coordination. Center the MISL- operator fired a missile at what he perceived to be threatening target, but was in fact, a passenger aircraft, and so this first missile is according to the report is the missiles that not necessarily impacted? Your corporate exploded near enough to aircraft to disable the aircraft and then following basically one hundred eighty degree. Turn to the right. The aircraft crashed a few minutes later. As every incident we've ever discussed a lot goes wrong for a crash to occur, and this was no different. It just wasn't in the aircraft. It was on the ground, not anything completely unexpected here that there was just a complete failure of process, really any secure procedures much like the Malaysian jet that went down the triple seven. This is also terrible,

"The late Major General Salim money was was a man with at least two faces one face that is the face of a young man who left his little village to go to the front to defend and Iran against the invading Iraqi army in nineteen eighty that very same individual of course also had another face. That face is the face of a general who cynically attacked and killed American servicemen in Iraq since two thousand and three and also most unfortunately engaged or was complicit in warcrimes in Iraq and also in Syria these two faces that showed the complexity of the individual. MM-HMM I respect. I won the war hero. But of course I condemn the other face. which is that of workroom? MM-HMM I think I have a somewhat different perspective here than many analysts of Iranian origin. Because not only did I live in Iran on but I also lived in Beirut and I would travel every couple of weeks to Damascus for your and so when I see the destruction of Syria these the numbers are not just as detested for me that thirteen million people displaced in a six hundred thousand people killed I see US Sumani as being directly complicit and that horrific violence this is frankly my problem with a lot of erroneous on your comment on this because I feel like they totally lack self awareness about you know the the only view in the Iranian context and they don't give a shit about the role.

"This is an inflamed situation with tensions on the streets of Iran as suggestions by people at Boris Johnson. The new Iran nuclear deal should be negotiated. President trump is a great deal by any content and and many others. Let's let's work together to replace the JCP get the trump deal instead can. How is this playing out for Donald Trump? Well you know other than the fact that one hundred seventy six innocent people killed which is something. That is incredibly terrific On a cold strategic level. You'd have to say that this is not going to badly for Donald Trump. You know Iran has lost a significant military military leader. Someone responsible for many American deaths. He was touted as a possible future president of Iran. She was the king of the roadside bombs. Great percentages of people don't have legs and arms because of this of the Iranian government has been exposed as having lied to its population. It's less credibility and now a wedge is being and driven between Iran and Europe which has so far opposed many American policies on Iran on the other hand the killing of Customs Slimani was a major event and the strikes that we store in Iraq. Last week will not be the end of Iran's revenge so what happens now what we don't expect to see any more military action in for example the missile strikes we saw last week. But you might remember that. Last year there was this wave of of suspicious attacks across the region said there were these drones and missile no strikes on Saudi oil facilities. I'm oil tankers in the Gulf suddenly started to Have Holes appear in their holes and found themselves mysteriously early disabled and they couldn't quite say with precision. Who had done it? This is the kind of proxy of quiet attacks that Iran specializes in. And for Ron. It's about making a point. It's about saying if we can't export oil The no one can and we're going to make difficult for the entire oil industry in the Middle East Nice to operate we can also expect another violent. He in in Iraq coming out of these Iran backed militias. Who who are in Iraq were loyal to custom awesome Sulejmani? He had helped to set them up. Help US supply and fund them. We don't expect that they will take his killing aligned down and so It's going to be another year of instability and danger in Iraq but also across the broader Middle East. What will this will mean for the Iranian Indian people.

"Blessed by Dave's the question had been sitting there waiting to be answered. What is Iran going to do the killing of Qasim souleyman is one of the most consequential decisions of the trump presidency? It will change the game in the Middle East and have the US Customs Lemani. The leader of Iran's infamous coups force in a drone strike. People were shocked. No one thought the. US would aim so high up through that. Yesterday's Sola money's body was supposed to be laid to rest in his own town. There was so much chaos there so much emotion just so many mourners. That revered him that there was a stampede. It killed fifty people it did not take a genius to figure out. Iran cannot be seen to do nothing. Here they've got to retaliate somehow. But what do you do. I just heard you say the. US will receive the definitive resolute resolute response to its brazen criminal act in a place and at a time it hurts most. What do you mean by that? I mean Iran on is a patient country yesterday. Our Own Martha Raddatz who's in Tehran. Actually got to sit down with the foreign minister of the country and ask him herself. We will not our action not disproportion like the United States here there he did not say what form this would take last night. We got word that something was happening. Good evening we come on the air tonight with breaking news coming into ABC News just moments ago. US officials telling ABC News that Iran has fired ballistic Listrik missiles from inside Iran at US military facilities inside Iraq Iran often hides behind proxy forces armed. The militias that they supply here. The Iranian government wasted. No time saying this was us. This was our government. Iran is launching bombs at the US US military. So let's take you to Iraq right now we told you. ABC Senior foreign correspondent. Ian Panel was in Erbil because it was safer there than it was to be in Baghdad. Well Arbil is one of the areas that got bombed overnight and Ian. You actually heard some commotion as it was happening Right. I mean what happened. Yeah it was strange. I mean I was actually on the phone to One of our colleagues in New Yorkers about five forty five eastern time and stood by the window and I heard two distinct booms and I just kind of pulls and leaned in Ah I you know having done this for a while. It was kind of UNMISTAKEABLE sound of some kind of ordinance. Then we started getting news. There had been multiple missile strikes on a USA basis The basis is out in western Iraq. Which is home to thousands of US troops into the last several moments Iranian state television said Tehran launched tens of surface to surface missiles? And then we got confirmation that they'd been three the missile strikes over here in bill to what the airport which is kind of less than two miles away from here that were intercepted a third which we also heard. When we're we're back to go on there we think that's one of the rockets that landed out in open ground? So Ian. I know things are changing our to our this morning at this moment. What what do we know about damage or casualties? What are we talking? Yeah well what. We're hearing from senior Administration source is the. US casualties at the moment. Which of course will be an enormous relief to families back at home But the situation remains fluid and an assessment is still ongoing. We we have heard unconfirmed reports. Perhaps there were Iraqi casualties. There will be an assessment of the damage there and the questions about the targets. These were not too obvious targets especially up in bill these two kind of remote basis if you wanted to cause a lot of damage more importantly if you wanted to inflict a large number of casualties take these were the two of size to do. But we're not talking about direct contact between two big countries in the United United States. Clearly far more powerful than Iran but nevertheless isn't just a proxy forcing you can kind of ignore and okay. Well it was just them. We'll just deal with them on the side. This is now dealing with the entire country of Iran and that is much more problematic because I think one of the lessons from the Iranian strike is that they consider anywhere in the country a valid target said as much. Don't just here in Iraq but the US service personnel and the US diplomats considered a valid target. Now by the Iranian regime wherever wherever they are in panel in the country reporting on this crisis all of a sudden found himself right in the middle of this crisis. Em thanks so much. Thanks Brad So. These missiles went from Iran across the border into Iraq. Well we've got a reporter in Tehran. ABC's chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz Right. It's Martha as I said earlier. You actually spoke to one of the top leaders in the Iranian government. Foreign Minister Mohammad. Javad Zarif I mean when you spoke to him. Did you get the sense that something like this was coming. I I certainly didn't get the sense that it was imminent but it was chilling sitting there with the foreign minister and have him look q in the eye and say that they would be taking retaliatory action. Do Not as took an actor. Awards have to be prepared for the consequences. I wish and he told me it would be against the US military. I ask him if they would take. US civilians off their target list. Yeah well you see it on his never put. US civilians on its target. This and I said well that sounds to me like it would be the. US military that makes me think clearly they will be US military targets. That's what our military people have said. But that's his decision that we would make at the the appropriate time and that is exactly what happened just really hours later what we have learned just as we came on the air with World News. Tonight I'll Asad airbase in western Western Iraq in Anbar province has been struck at this point by Iran. These are a ballistic missiles that came from Iran and Iranian. TV is reporting at this hour tens of missiles he also said quite clearly that if there was an attack Iran would immediately take responsibility for that attack and that came rather quickly when we started hearing reports that missiles had hit Iraq. Yeah I was going to say Martha the and this was missile. After missile it is that the end. Though or should we be expecting some sort of prolonged blitz by Iran. You get a sense. Some of the rhetoric coming out of Iran makes me think this is it military forces statement warning what it calls the Great Satan the arrogant American regime running TV calling this a revenge vange operation. The missiles fired tonight. Part of what Iran is now calling Operation Mutter Salami. I think one thing to watch obviously is how the United States reacts. Thanks so if there is a mild response in the United States this may ended. It made deescalate the situation. I think it would be the bend of us in this reach. Although on the other hand one of the other things that is a reset was that they want all U S forces out of Iraq doc. Out of the Mideast out of Syria out of all these places where they have been for so long on that would be a very a high price to pay for the adventurism of a couple of people so that also is something to watch. FX Reef issued. A tweet last tonight after all this went down saying that Iran acting legally and then he said this this was key we do not seek escalation or war but will defend ourselves against any aggression so defend ourselves against any aggression which would seem to imply if the US doesn't do anything else. We can be done as well. Martha Raddatz talking to the leaders of Iran in Iran. Thank you thanks. Brad always good.

I always knew something had happened to her to vanish like that uncover the cat lady case he's from. CBC podcasts. For more on how these attacks are being felt across the region on joined by Christian life wreck. He's a professor of political science. That's at Royal Military College and Queen's University. He is in Kingston Ontario Christian. Good morning to you. Good Morning I want to start with the story. That's unfolding in that region. That's top of mind for so many Canadians right now. That's the death of one hundred. Seventy six people on board or Ukrainian plane crashed in Tehran. Sixty three Canadians. Among those dead people will wake up this morning. It's shocking news and people wake up this morning in the knowledge of the attack that we've just been talking about but then here of this plane crashes well and might initially connect the dots between the two. How are you reading what's happening? I mean the official statements have been of course that they're not related but One things the Iranians would have done in anticipation of of possible. US strikes against the missile launchers or for instance radar sites is that they might have used. GPS trackers and would possibly turned off either all sorts of other electronic equipment or try to use electron equipment to misguide and US assets cruise missiles planes or whatnot And so it's entirely possible that in the field of circumstance A civilian plane would readily get disoriented and not get for instance the proper sincere answers to knock right not the proper paying height for instance So so I think we'll. We would need an independent investigation to ascertain that whether we're actually going to be able to get that out around That'll be difficult ascertain. We'll follow that along as it develops in the meantime wh the attacks last night in these two basis. Why do you think those bases in particular were targeted? So I think the Iranians were trying to minimize the prospect of catering allied assets or allied personnel personnel other than the. US and the look. The Iranians have very good intelligence on what's happening on these basis It seems that several of the missiles also missed their intended targets and that was probably the greater risk A missile might fall somewhere where the Iranians had not intended it to fall then inadvertently Cost Collateral American Damage so I think it was meant as a clear signal that this was a strike. Against the United States it was not a strike against the NATO mission Oregon's partner countries within the region. Why do you think no one was hurt? Mark Rosenbaum hosing ball was suggesting that perhaps that was that was by design from the Iranians. Oh sure I mean. The Iranians could've retaliated right away. They have the intelligence they have the capabilities. There was no reason why the Iranians had to wait other than perhaps to honor the fallen general in morning Among the more time they gave the Americans more time Americans obviously had to move assets and people out of harm's way And I think that was very much intent Over the Iranian propaganda the machine had to retaliate. In some capacity the Americans would have much anticipated And so this is largely for the exploitation of domestic propaganda and for the the existential continuity of the regime rather than trying to inflict maximum damage on the United States. Canadian military has hundreds of troops in Iraq began moving the troops to Kuwait yesterday and the operations in Iraq have been paused. Do we know whether all of the Canadian troops out of Iraq I suspect the tweet by the chiefs defense stuff with indicated that if that had been the case of course now moving troops so it gets a lot more complicated because you WANNA make sure in case there's further strikes You don't confuse Canadian vehicles with Iraqi or US vehicles or whatnot. so I think they'll be considerable. Thinking of National National Defense and Kenya enforces this morning about how to ensure both the safety of the personnel and the ability of Canada of course in its leadership position will also have leadership roles to play Ah In assuring the safety of personnel and Alad Asset. Where does that? Where does that leave the role of Canada? A pause and operations isn't ceasing operations. Where does that that leave The Canadian troops so Canada will have an interest in a united. NATO is so Canada has like some other allies has withdrawn its troops The commitment by secretary-general showed America has been to restart the mission as soon as possible. And that's in the broader interests of of Canada because it wants to shore up the alliance then either lines is arguably the most important. Multilateral Institution of which candidates part and a significant interest enforce multiply for Canada in so Canada will not be the one breaking ranks it will be taking its cues from its allies And from the NATO they're also trying to counsel just in the final minute that we have when these attacks were launched. Last night I think a lot of people probably wondered. Is this the start of something that could get much larger and perhaps spiral out of control. MARKLE's inbal suggesting that perhaps there's the opportunity if not for diplomacy than certainly for de-escalation. Do you see that opportunity as well. sure I mean it doesn't missiles is is a fairly modest response The European Union yourself on the line has been really very active in trying to mediate with Iran Germany has indicated that it is actively talking to both Iran and Washington. And I think the statement by Secretary General Stoltenberg about the escalation is awesome. Awesome all of branch to Iran that perhaps There's a silver lining here and there may be an opportunity to negotiate and generate an endgame. That is acceptable. Both to the United States and Iran Iran both gone out of the current situation in for the region more broad than I guess the first signs of that would be what the US President says this morning. He's expected to talk later on today. Well as unpredictable as he is the unpredictability may also play to his strengths In terms of restraining BS Iranian leadership. Because if you're targeting arguably the second most important person in the country who knows who may be next among the arena league if they try to escalate Kirsten Brock thank you.

The United States has to come to its senses they should stop listening to clowns a sound from video of onlookers to one of the Iranian missile attacks in Iraq and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif staking his position afterwards the US Iran tit for tat reached another level last night.

What were you hearing in the capital? After the attacks took place we did hear a fair amount of helicopter and actively Baghdad coming from the Green Zone. What do we know about how much damage these missile strikes caused? It's very likely that caused damage to at the very least you know equipment on the basis particularly the Assad military base in western Iraq which is one of the biggest military bases Chirac why these bases the US has a presence throughout Iraq. But why were these basis targeted do you think the. US is hosted on Iraqi military bases but these two in particular have a fairly large USO troupe present in the u the Assad military base in western Iraq is known for having the largest amount on a US troops in Iraq. So you know. I think the goal was to aim at US personnel and he was interested in rocks. Is your sense that the Iraqi leadership knew that these attacks were coming well. They just said that they knew the acting. Prime Minister of the method just released a statement saying but Iran alerted him to the fact that they were going to launch missiles and he in turn Let the United States no to You Know Essentially Watch out. He also has not come outright and condemned the attacks. What does that tell you? I think it tells us that. The Iraqi government has a fairly close relationship with Iran Mathie with originally brought to power by a coalition that has Iranian backing And prior to all of this happening met the cell the the money several times You know it shows a clear difference in rhetoric at the same time you know we have to look at the damage caused by these strikes Eh She's like. Nobody was killed in missile strikes. The thrust of the statements coming from the Iraqi prime minister if you take them in its totality seemed to suggest that the Iraqi leadership wants the heat to be turned down. The prime minister has called on all sides to practice self restraint adhere to international agreements. Respect the Iraqi state And is concerned about a devastating all at war in Iraq the region and the world. What do you think the leadership wants from from the two uh-huh forces that that that have put Iraq in the middle of this conflict? I think of course. They don't want to be trapped in the middle of a proxy war Iraq. You know has just gotten out of several years of conflict And I think the you know the prospect effect of being plunged into another war between two states that you know are fighting battles that have nothing near truly to do with Iraq. It's something and that is terrifying too many Iraqis and I know that Iraqi leadership. It's very much against the possibility Iraq being plunged into violence into chaos again. Told me more about that. In terms of how Iraqi citizens feel you tweeted as you said that that in many ways they feel trapped between The United added states in Iran. Yeah I mean we also have to look at kind of the local context in Iraq.

"And And the revolutionary legionary guards were involved in pushing them back in Iraq in particular that made the group but also general money pretty popular in Iran. I think there were some polls taken that had him at over seventy percent popularity in two thousand sixteen but the other side of the flip side of that coin. Is that the fact that he was the the face of Iran's influence in the region also meant that anytime that something happened that was negative on the part of groups that were funded by Iran in Iraq. For example then that would be directly associated with the Iranian government. He had been a day of tension culminating in this the Iranian consulate on fire after being stormed and by a group of protesters demonstrators venting their anger about Iran's alleged involvement in Iraqi politics. He was the architect of Iran's regional activities. He had built relationships with groups on the ground. In countries like Iraq Syria and Lebanon and he was is really leading Iran's efforts in the region but again none of this was without controversy. He had very violent methods at times and a lot of what Iran was doing. The region was stoking. Sectarian tensions having said that he was the leader of a of the force which is the external branch of Iran's Revolutionary Guards and the Revolutionary Guards are absolutely not a one man show which means there are others who will be able to continue what he has. I've been doing in the region so he's left big shoes to fill but he's not irreplaceable. On that subject who is a successor so the supreme leader appointed his successor quite quickly after they announced that he had been assassinated the successors name as Brigadier General. Smile Ghani He. Who was the deputy in the votes force? So he's not as charismatic. He's not as popular. He's not as well known as the money was but but he has been his right hand for a number of years and so he really understands how the organization works. He has a very good feel. For how the Revolutionary Guards themselves work. He knows exactly what they're doing in the region and I believe he was involved in pushing back isis under money when when the Revolutionary Guards were. We're we're focused on that. The challenge that he's going to have moving forward is building the same personal relations that mining built over the course of his entire career with different people in different groups on the ground but I think it should be surmountable just getting back to the Iranian people. Right now. How much harder to their lives? Just get if this if this conflict between Iran and the United States is only growing. I don't think that lesson. Sally money's death fist going to influence their lives directly. What it will do is it will put some of their economic and social concerns on the back burner for a little awhile as they come together and you know show themselves as a unified group in the face of an external enemy?.

"It's hard to imagine millions of Americans pouring into the streets after the killing of a US general but the Iranian version of that has been happening for days now in fact so many people were in the streets. Streets of General Solomon his hometown in southeastern Iran. Today that there was a stampede. It was reported that over fifty people died and over two hundred people were injured. Everyone rightly wants to know right now. The world is about to go to war over all of this an unfortunately. We're going to have to wait and see. But in the meantime what is it about this general that would bring out millions compel people to risk their lives. I asked asked Dina s spend Jerry. She's a fellow at the Century Foundation in London. She focuses on Iran. We started with how many people are actually out there so it's really hard to come up with specific numbers because nobody's counted them of course but as the images of shown there do seem to be quite a lot of people out in the streets. It's and they also seem to be spread throughout the country so there was some in Adams money's hometown There were many many in Tehran. And the interesting thing is that aside from these demonstrations being spread across the country there are also spread across the spectrum which means that people who are either supporters the government or even against government. Everybody has given up on those or at least forgotten them for now and come out in support of US until the money and why what is about this guy. That's led to this. You know massive outpouring of support. The main reason for it obviously is that everybody is coming out to celebrate what they consider a national military leader in hero of the nation who has spent the better part of his entire lifetime defending being the Iranian nation. Now this doesn't mean that those who are out are necessarily supportive of the methods that awesome Sulejmani used throughout his career in order to defend the Iranian nation. In fact he's still quite a controversial figure but the fact that he he is the defender of the Iranian nation commands the sense of nationalism amongst Iranians and the fact that on top of that it was a foreign country that ordered his assassination has really brought out the feeling of nationalism amongst Iranian so there is no better way to unify Iranians wins than in the face of an external enemy but I suspect that what the trump administration did was that they were building on the protests that occurred in Iran a couple months ago where again across across the political spectrum people were demonstrating against their government Iranians of taking to the streets by thousands and what began as protests denouncing a hike in gasoline prices but the uprising quickly turned political with demands that top officials step down the Iranian government responded with a five day Internet shutdown. These protests protests were shut down pretty aggressively by the Iranian government and so I think the trump administration will have extrapolated from that that Hey Iranians are anti either government so there's no way that they're going to pay this much attention if we go ahead and take this very problematic figure out. And what was the mood in Iran before Sulejmani death so. I think it's key to understand that Iranians things are not very happy at the moment given their economic social and political situation. There's a real sense of exhaustion amongst the Iranian public particularly exhaustion with regards to Iran's relations with other countries Iran's relations with the US on top of that Iranians or a little taken aback by where they are today. They don't really understand from their perspective. Their country made a certain number of concessions in two thousand fifteen when it joined the nuclear nuclear deal Iran implemented the deal and so they don't really understand why it is today. The trump administration has spent the last year or two squeezing them as far as he possibly could economically so there is a real sense of exhaustion of discontent in Iran but the assassination of lessons really money was the greatest gift that the trump administration could have given the Iranian government now Iranians despite their discontent have basically I put that unhappiness on hold in a show of unity to come together and showed that they would rather deal with their own government. Because it's a better the devil you know Oh perspective then deal with foreign enemy. What does his death mean for? Iran's military operations Questrom Sulejmani has left big shoes to fill here. They are members of the elite Revolutionary Guards on the frontlines of serious civil you during the course of the civil war in Syria roundabout the beginning where tensions really escalated within Syria at the Iranian government mint in coordination with the Revolutionary Guards launched this PR campaign around General Possum Sulejmani basically portray him as the face of Iranian Uranian efforts in the region that was a bit of a double edged sword on the one hand it was very successful in elevating the importance of the Revolutionary Guards in making the very popular particularly when Isis came within forty miles of the Iranian border.

"An open secret it feels weird even call the secret is that the government of iran funds militias in other countries in syria in lebanon this his will and some of these some of these organizations are considered by the west to be terrorist groups but to their supporters they're considered to be freedom fighters which is a another definition or contradiction that we run into often yeah speaking of freedom fighters you may recall the us's involvement with the iran contra scandal where we were illegally selling weapons to iran without congress knowing without anyone else knowing and then there's the whole the whole situation with us selling weapons to iraq as well during the iran iraq war so there's just the united states and this region is just has this history man where we tend to do some shady stuff rights right and maybe that's the fog of war maybe there's something larger at play because one of the questions that we consistently run into when we talk about why there's intervention in one state or one region over another one one of the things we run into is whether there is something greater play behind the curtain so consider for instance countries that are resource poor or at least comparatively not not as fortunate in terms of the resources consider all the all the countries that are struggling with poverty with human rights abuse with brutal authoritarian dictatorships why's the us not there why is the west not there for some people for the cynics in the crowd the answer is resource based and iran's gays they argue that this intervention is specifically due to the oil that was discovered way back in the early nineteen hundreds so what what's going on.

"An overthrow of their democratically elected governing structure but not a coup of the people not a genuine mass of the proletariat rising or something no this regime change came from outside of iran yeah exactly there was a prime minister who had been elected and everything and then of course not of course but as we have seen before british and in this case american intelligence agencies both decided they needed to do something and it was mostly british intelligence contacting american intelligence and saying hey we need your help with this tallyho exactly so they replaced the democratically elected prime minister mohammad mosaic with the with this guy that's known as the shaw he was also known as the king of kings to his friends and i guess doing a self friends the king of kings the informal name okay okay yeah well i think it was the shaw sim shaw something to that effect muhammed resin shah this dude ben oh raza pod lavi yeah he was tremendously unpopular not an opinion that's a fact yeah exactly you can find out more about this whole situation that occurred during the nineteen fiftythree iranian coup if you search for things like tpa j x or operation ajax that was the as version and also operation boot be ovo t that was the secret intelligence service the british intelligence agencies also known as my six knows their version and so he ends up the the the shah was it ends up being the last shah of iran that the timing will differ a little bit but he would be considered active not although not absolute monarch active from september nineteen forty one until february of nineteen seventy nine when he was overthrown by the iranian people and normally would think wow that's fantastic the people rising up right democracy they are pursuing what they as a community or as a state consider their own will their own independence however the overthrow led to the creation of a fia craddock regime a modern theocratic regime they are the rulers of iran today so they're so what we see is a move ideologically right.

"Yeah and all of the i mean i think what bothers me the most is the morality of their claims you know where it's like how how evil iran is or how evil has blah is well donald trump goes and drops off one hundred ten billion dollars in weapons to the saudis who are using it to just starve the the people of yemen to death i mean give me a fucking break about tributaries that iran is in yemen right that's all right so we're running up against time so i just want to talk about a little bit about what's happened since the deal since donald trump he was pulling out of the deal because it seems immediately israel so it was like oh shit we got america back in our corner and they went right in and killed a bunch of iranians in syria iran looks like they tried to strike back but like none of the missiles i think some of them were shot down and then the other ones no is israel is we're actually killed but what do you things going on between israel and iran right now and is that going to be the hot conflicts maybe before the neo cons their way and where we're in taran and we're having regime change they are is israel going to be fighting a war now with iran i don't think so i mean to be perfectly honesty is rose some getting away with bloody murder attack in and syrian targets in this whole war onion maybe hundreds of times certainly scores and scores and scores of attacks by the israelis against the syrians now they claim that they hit some rain ian i don't know if that's really confirmed and the israelis of course also claimed that it was a that were shooting missiles at them but i don't know that that's really confirmed either i mean those are the claims and i think the israelis are probably trying very hard to send the message that they want the iranians to go home at this point but the iranians again if you're not begging the question on this like a hawk and assuming all the worst conclusions i but you're just being honest and looking at this the iranians have no reason to think and i'm sure they don't think that they're going to somehow build up a giant force in syria and then use it to attack israel right.
