A Scottish accent I can nearly understand. Yay ! 😎

Great idea – it’s like the 90 second news headlines segment produced by Deutsche Welle.

I tried doing a 5 minute Newspaper Headlines Podcast back in 2004 when podcasting was just getting up and running. Used to take 45 minutes to make. I am glad it is less work now.

The main thing I have learned today is that George is about 20 years younger than I thought he was……..

So something of a jump to the left and a step to the right on the subject matter of the moment . In light of how so many third world countries who depend on aid from the richer democratic countries have openily sided with Moscow regards its invasion. should we in the West reevaluate our relationships with these countries .

In the world people tend to be drawn to multiple sides. If most support one thing there will always be some that say nope I’m with the other side.
As for reevaluation I think the main point of the west needs to be, no matter what you have done you are not beyond coming back to the west way of thinking. I wouldn’t want to go back to say the 50s where if someone disagrees they are a communist and that them condemned for ever.
Got to keep trying to spread the love so to speak.

So if we exclude them the Chinese use aid/debt servitude to subjugate them?

Bear in mind that is what really happen and then you totally loose any comms channels.

I’m sure things were promised about ‘the new order’ and I’m sure even the dumbest now realise they did not back the winning side or a good look?

I do, however, think aid should be linked to behavioural change

Great news. I will check it out. Remember all to like and subscribe😂😂
On a serious note the videos that get liked and subs get promoted to the feeds of other related topics.
There so much terrible defence content out there good sources are most welcomed.
My favourites are, sub brief, millennium7*, task and purpose among others.

Thanks for the updates. It is hard to get solid information here in the US and I commend you for your efforts.

Geez, George, get yourself a teleprompter. You’ve got yourself a nice gaming PC in the background there, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

I hope you understand Youtube’s rather idiosyncratic ban hammer better than I do.
