Live Around the Planet: Thursday September 16th

WhatsApp Telegram

Today, Thursday, I'll be conducting another edition of our Clubland Q&A, live across the globe at 11am North American Eastern/3pm Greenwich Mean Time/4pm British Summer Time. We'll try to pin down the rest of the time zones below, but do, as they say, check local listings. On today's rundown, I'm happy to take questions on almost anything, from the floppo California recall and Shanghai Milley to the dispiriting Canadian election and Alberta's U-turn on vaccine passports. Plus any news from overseas you want to raise. As you know, certain topics hold little interest, but I'll do my best to disguise that (or not). So give it your best shot, as they say in the vaccine line. I always feel the show goes better with a broad canvas. Whether or ...

Beijing's Man on the Inside

WhatsApp Telegram

Having taken twenty years to lose the last war, the Pentagon has decided to fast-track things and pre-lose the next war: Twice in the final months of the Trump administration, the country's top military officer was so fearful that the president's actions might spark a war with China that he moved urgently to avert armed conflict. In a pair of secret phone calls, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People's Liberation Army, that the United States would not strike, according to a new book by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa... "General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable ...

Bush Re-Enters the Room

WhatsApp Telegram

The official observances for the twentieth anniversary managed to be even more wretched and grotesque than I'd expected - the most obvious affront being Bush's equivalence between the perpetrators of 9/11 and the "perpetrators" of 1/6: They were both "children of the same foul spirit", he declared, diminishing the three thousand victims of the former by comparing them to a congressman who had to hide in the stationery cupboard because some goofball was taking selfies with his feet up on the desk. Twenty years ago, the forty-third president's entire executive branch totally failed the nation. Sample quote from page 184 of America Alone: FAA Command Center: "Do we want to think about scrambling aircraft?" FAA Headquarters: "God, I don't know ...

Recluses and Reality

WhatsApp Telegram

In this week's episode of Passing Parade, we feature two somewhat reclusive men - one of whom wound up just down the road from me in New Hampshire, the other of whom left Liverpool to become one of Australia's "ten-pound poms" and then drifted on to more exotic parts of empire. J D Salinger's reclusiveness aided what was evidently to him the principal advantage of literary celebrity - the chicks - while Ken Bigley found himself briefly famous for all the wrong reasons in the aftermath of the invasion of Iraq...
