Luisteraars! Sla de dekentjes maar in, leg de tomaten in de vriezer, zet de kunstmest in de koeling, want het gaat helemaal cray cray op de gasmarkten. Aardgas is superduur, de hele zomer zaten we op 15 euro per megawattuur, vorige week tikten we ineens 150 euro aan, nu zijn we weer een gedaald naar 88 euro. Aardgas, moeten we daar niet van af? Treden we geen duurzame toekomst tegemoet, waarin die hele gaswinning verleden tijd is? We mogen het hopen! Maar feit is, dat Nederland nog voor dik veertig procent afhankelijk is van aardgas voor zijn energiebehoefte. En hoewel we zelf steeds minder aardgas produceren, verbruiken we nog precies even veel aardgas. En dat zal de komende decennia nog wel zo zijn. Dat heeft helaas de nodige nadelen. We zijn in toenemende mate overgeleverd aan de grillen van Russisch en Amerikaans gas, dat vaak veel klimaatonvriendelijker is. Daarom spreek ik in deze podcast met Jilles van den Beukel, energieanalist bij The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies. Van den Beukel is een zachtaardige man, die hard naar gas heeft geboord. Van den Beukel heeft in een ver en duister verleden namelijk gewerkt als geofysicus voor Royal Dutch Shell. Dat maakt hem natuurlijk bij voorbaat verdacht, maar tevens een enorme kenner van olie- en gasmarkten.

In this episode of the ChinaPower Podcast, Dr. M. Taylor Fravel joins us to discuss whether China has become more militarily assertive toward its neighbors during the pandemic. Dr. Fravel argues that, although some expected the People's Liberation Army (PLA) to halt or reduce its activity during the Covid-19 pandemic, the level of Chinese assertiveness seen prior to the pandemic has continued during the pandemic. He adds that the PLA's ability to dispatch medical teams within China during the pandemic while maintaining its pace of operations in regional disputes shows that China is reaping the rewards of two decades of PLA modernization. Lastly, Dr. Fravel describes the benefits of increasing US collaboration with countries on the front lines of Chinese disputes. Dr. Fravel is the Arthur and Ruth Sloan Professor of Political Science and Director of the Security Studies Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Fravel studies international relations, with a focus on international security, China, and East Asia. His books include, Strong Borders, Secure Nation: Cooperation and Conflict in China's Territorial Disputes, (Princeton University Press, 2008) and Active Defense: China's Military Strategy Since 1949 (Princeton University Press, 2019).

On this episode of Pilsners & Politics, Benji and Vinny sit down with two distinguished military servicemen (retired), Col. Michael Peterman and Col. Arthur Sharpe.First and foremost, Benji and Vinny want to send our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of the 13 brave military soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan as a result of poor planning and execution from our nations leaders.  The people entrusted with keeping those souls safe failed them miserably in what will go down as one of the biggest foreign relations disasters in our nations history.  We pray for those who lost their lives and are thankful for their service!  The truth is, this episode was recorded a day before this tragic loss of life occurred, otherwise it would have been spoken about at length.  That being said, we would like to dedicate this episode to those 13 soldiers; may your service to this country be honored and remembered, it will never be in vain!Col. Peterman and Col. Sharpe offered some great insight as to what is taking place over in Afghanistan.  With the vast majority of Americans having very little information on this crisis, it was imperative to have these two strategic, knowledgeable minds come on to help put the pieces together for the rest of us who may have never served in the military and likely have very little grasp on the foreign relations/tensions in the Middle East.Col. Mike Peterman:Colonel Peterman (Ret.) is P&S Solutions' founder and CEO.   Mike fought in Afghanistan with 3rd Brigade of the 82nd Airborne (2002), 4th Brigade of the 82nd Airborne and commanded the 101st Sustainment Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan (2010-11). Col. Peterman joined the commercial sector following 26 years of distinguished service in the United States Army.  His career was highlighted by troop assignments in Airborne, Special Forces units and he was privileged to command the 82nd Airborne's Main Support Battalion and 101st Airborne Division's - Sustainment Brigade (Air Assault). After three combat deployments to Afghanistan, he was assigned to the United States Army Materiel Command (AMC) as the Director of the Commanding General's Initiatives Group (CIG) and the Chief of Operations and Plans (CHOPs). Mike holds a Master's degree in Strategic Studies from United States Army War College and Health Services Administration from Chapman University as well as a Bachelor of Arts in History from Weber State University.  He possesses the professional designation of Demonstrated Master Logistician from the International Society of Logistics.Col. Arthur Sharpe:Colonel Sharpe has over 35 years of senior governmental, political, legal, financial and professional military service in highly responsible managerial, financial, leadership and command positions involving both military and civilian positions.  Col. Sharpe is a multi-functional logistician with MOS/AOC 90A (multi-functional logistician); 91A (technical supply); 92A (mechanical maintenance) and 92B (supply management).  He has experience conducting multiple transitions at all levels of military, government and civilian organizations, both CONUS and OCONUS, some with strategic consequences.Having spent most of his military deployments in Iraq, Col. Sharpe offers similar insight as to his counterpart, Col. Peterman, and understands the logistical issues plaguing the region.  Col. Sharpe was awarded the Combat Action Badge, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star (2), Meritorious Service Medal (4), Army Commendation Medal (2), Army Achievement Medal and the Humanitarian Service Award (JTF Katrina) among many others.  In addition to his distinguished military career, Col. Sharpe is licensed to practice law in the State of Mississippi and had been in charge of numerous federal and state run agencies.

How will the lives of millions of Afghan women change now that the Taliban has taken control of their country? What will happen to their freedom? As the Taliban goes onto establishing their rule in Afghanistan, the futures of Afghan women and young girls stand at a very precarious position. They are petrified that those dark ages from the older Taliban regime might return once again. They're worried that school, college, jobs, the freedom to be as they will — all of that may soon be snatched away from them.  Even though in their first press conference since the capture of Kabul, Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said they would honour women's rights going forward, there's an ambiguous caveat there that evokes distrust. The Taliban have made it clear that women can exercise their right within the framework of the Islamic code. The deep skepticism around their promises isn't unfounded given their tainted past, when they had banned education for women and girls, forbidden them to step outside without a male escort, cut off their access to employment, forced them to wear full body coverings – failing to do which extreme punishments awaited women such as lashings and even being stoned to death in some instances. So, can the Taliban really be trusted?  With reports coming up of Afghan women being let off their banking jobs, women journalists being taken off air, is it likely that the Taliban will gradually go back to their old ways? In this episode we bring you voices of Afghan women.

The Big Story

The world has been watching as a major humanitarian crisis erupted in the war-torn country of Afghanistan. Prompted by US President Joe Biden's decision to pull US troops out of the Afghan soil, Taliban terrorists took over the country swiftly with little to no resistance and returned to power. What was left behind was a hapless people unsure of where their futures lie and scared of what comes with the Taliban regime which is known for its extremities. In what will perhaps remain to be a defining image of the tragedy that befell Afghanistan, photos and video footage showed hundreds of Afghan nationals streaming into Kabul and thronging around the Kabul airport, in a bid to escape the country. But with no way out, some of them were simply clinging onto flights without hopes of ever fleeing. And amid this reign of chaos and fear, Taliban insurgents have been taking control of province after province in the past week, until they finally marched into the capital Kabul — the last major seat of the Afghan government — and claimed victory. Barely hours after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country, the Taliban also seized the presidential palace, and brandishing guns, they declared that the "war is over". Indeed, the war against terror that had started 20 years back with the US sending its troops to the country to topple the Taliban regime, ended in the same way that it had started — with the Taliban rule. And, just like that in a matter of a few months, Afghanistan's political and social future went through what can only be described as a tectonic shift.  But how did Taliban insurgency withstand 20 years of military offensive led by Western allies and capture Afghanistan once again? Is the decision to withdraw US troops going to define Biden's legacy? What is the fate of the people and women especially who are trying to escape the Taliban rule?  Over the new few episodes of our daily news podcast, we will try to unravel the nuances of what led to the fall of Afghanistan and the many implications of this political catastrophe. In this episode, we will look at what happened in the last 20 years that ultimately led to the Taliban marking the end of the US-army era in the country. Did the US lose narrative of the battle against the Taliban and Al Qaeda forces? Was it really invested in the peace process? And how did the Afghan forces fall to the Taliban forces so quickly?

Andy and Dave discuss the latest in AI news, including a story from MIT Technology Review (which echoes observations made previously on AI with AI) that “hundreds of AI tools have been built to catch COVID. None of them helped.” DeepMind has used its AlphaFold program to identify the structure for 98.5 percent of roughly 20,000 human proteins and will make the information publicly available. The Pentagon makes use of machine learning algorithms to create decision space in the latest of its Global Information Dominance Experiments. An Australian court rules that AI systems can be “inventors” under patent law (but not “owners”), and South Africa issues the world's first patent to an “AI System.” The United States Special Operations Command put 300 of its personnel through a unique six-week crash course in AI, including leaders such as Google CEO Eric Schmidt and former Defense Secretary Ash Carter. And President Biden nominates Stanford professor Ramin Toloui, who has experience with AI technologies and impacts, as an Assistant Secretary of State for business. In research, DeepMind develop agents capable of “open-ended learning” in XLand, an environment with diverse tasks and challenges. A survey from the Journal of AI Research finds that AI researchers have varying amounts of trust in different organizations, companies, and governments. The Journal of Strategic Studies dedicates an issue to Emerging Technologies, with free access. Mine Cetinkaya-Rundel and Johanna Hardin make an Introduction to Modern Statistics open access with an option (or with proceeds going to OpenIntro, a US-based nonprofit).

Recently, Covid-19 cases in Southeast Asia have hit new highs, making it the global epicentre of the coronavirus. As countries across the region try to curb the spread of the Delta variant, Richard Maude and Dr Huong Le Thu detail how Australia can support its neighbours and the region's potential path to recovery. This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Antarctic Treaty, which governs international use of the Southern Continent. Research intern Matthew Page speaks to polar geopolitics expert Dr Elizabeth Buchanan, Lecturer of Strategic Studies with Deakin University for the Defence and Strategic Studies Course at the Australian War College Canberra and a Fellow of the Modern War Institute at West Point Military Academy. All views are her own. They discuss the geopolitics of the region, the usefulness of the treaty system 60 years on and what Australia should be focusing on in its Antarctic policy. The Port of Darwin, currently under a 99-year lease to Chinese company Landbridge, is of strategic importance to Australia and our allies. Co-author of the latest report from Northern Australia Strategic Policy Centre, ‘Lead me to the harbour!: Plotting Darwin Harbour's future course', Dr John Coyne joins Michael Shoebridge to discuss how Australia can maximise the strategic value of Darwin Port through a unified direction, that accounts for contrasting interests and stakeholders.

Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has a new Secretary, Kathryn Campbell. Darren uses the occasion to build a theoretical model of the position, positing that the ideal candidate would fulfil four roles: administrator, consigliere, strategist and diplomat. Allan points out that the “diplomat” skill-set is unique to DFAT, discussing the history of the position not just in Australia but internationally, and some of the novel challenges every DFAT secretary will face. The two next turn their attention to a pair of recent cyber stories: the attribution to China by a broad coalition of western governments of the massive and indiscriminate hack of Microsoft's Exchange server earlier this year, and investigative reporting that surveillance software sold by the Israeli company NSO is being used to monitor thousands of individuals, from political and business leaders to journalists and activists. Is it possible to develop norms in this domain, especially given how extensively the US conducts its own spying? What is different (if anything) about these events, and can a rules-based order that regulates this behaviour be built? As the podcast wraps up, Allan briefly discusses the recent APEC extraordinary meeting, the first of its kind for the organisation. Can the vigour of hosts New Zealand breathe new life into a troubled organisation? Finally, exclusive reporting by the ABC suggests the Australian government is considering returning a presence to Afghanistan, which would represent a rapid reversal of the decision to close the embassy indefinitely just a few months ago.

In July 2011, South Sudan gained independence with immense international support. Achieving statehood was seen by many as the end of an unstable coexistence with Sudan, but the bloody decade that followed is testament to the dangers and difficulties of state-building. Joining Alan Boswell this week to reflect on South Sudan's troubled ten-year journey is Dr. Luka Biong Deng Kuol, Dean of Academic Affairs at the Africa Center for Strategic Studies and former civil servant of Southern Sudan and Sudan. Dr. Luka shares his thoughts on what led to the young country's descent into a devastating civil war and why its two main antagonists, Salva Kiir and Riek Machar, remain locked in zero-sum politics. They discuss what it would take for a leadership change in South Sudan, what constitution would suit the country best, and whether prospects for a much-needed reset are realistic as elections loom on the horizon.
