The last time, and luckily this hasn't really happened since 1990, there was minimal resistance from the Kuwaiti and the Saudi forces. So, this obviously is 30 years ago, but there is little reason to believe that in spite of the hundreds of billions of dollars that is spent on armaments, this state of affairs has changed.

Kurt Azarbarzin grew up valuing discipline, hard work and a can-do attitude, and he credits much of his success to continuing to work and live by those principles. Having moved to the United States from Tehran, Iran in late 1970's as a senior in High School, Kurt was fortunate to live with an American family who knew his own family well. He enjoyed math and science, so he studied manufacturing engineering in college and had his first exposure to the medical device industry from a professor who was then consulting at U.S. Surgical. This professor helped Kurt obtain a part-time job there, and although he was not initially interested in medtech, Kurt quickly became fascinated with surgery as he worked with surgeons in the OR. He learned that if he truly aimed to help the surgeons achieve better outcomes, and not just pitch them products, then a mutually beneficial partnership could develop. After 21 years at U.S. Surgical, the company was acquired by Tyco, and Kurt decided to continue his passion for innovation by first becoming a consultant and then an entrepreneur. In this interview with host Geoff Pardo, Kurt shares how his family values and early learnings at U.S. Surgical helped shape his success as a founder and leader, including starting and exiting SurgiQuest, leading Verb Surgical, and now overseeing ColubrisMX Robotics. Tune in to hear these stories and insights, plus the three most pressing questions you need to be able to answer if you're considering surgical robotics.BIOKurt Azarbarzin is a 39-year medtech industry veteran, having led the development of over 90 new products representing over $910 million of annual sales at companies including U.S. Surgical, Tyco Healthcare (now Medtronic), Spine Wave, Respimetrix, SurgiQuest, Verb Surgical, and J&J. He has experience in surgical, robotic, cardiovascular, interventional, orthopedic and urological markets. Kurt founded SurgiQuest in 2005 and sold it to Conmed, and the company's lead technology AirSeal became the standard of care for advanced Lap and Robotic Surgery. He then became CEO of Verb Surgical, a Joint Venture between Google and J&J consisting of over 550 employees, that was acquired by J&J in January 2020. After that, Kurt became and is currently the CEO of ColubrisMX Robotics, which is developing the first endoluminal robotic platform in the world, thus truly enabling scarless surgery through existing lumens. Kurt currently lives in Greenwich, CT and is a funding member of the MIS Revolution.

Photo: Vulnerable:  At Mozaffar al-Din's accession as Shah of Persia, he faced a financial crisis, with annual governmental expenditures far in excess of revenues as a result of the policies of his father. During his reign, Mozzafar ad-Din attempted some reforms of the central treasury; however, the previous debt incurred by the Qajar court, owed to both England and Russia, significantly undermined this effort. He furthered this debt by borrowing even more funds from Britain, France, and Russia. The income from these later loans was used to pay earlier loans rather than create new economic developments. In 1908, oil was discovered in Persia but Mozzaffar ad-Din had already awarded William Knox D'Arcy, a British subject, the rights to oil in most of the country in 1901 Tehran regime vulnerable.  Mohsen Sazegara,  @sazegara, is an Iranian journalist and pro-democracy political activist.  ·         https://www.al-monitor.com/originals/2021/11/iran-parliament-rejects-raisis-pick-education-minister ·         https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/iranian-president-claims-countrys-frozen-assets-abroad-were-released-685154 ·         https://www.ft.com/content/a331c157-3c91-4bec-9972-35716bc4788e ·         https://nationalinterest.org/feature/why-did-iran-wait-rejoin-nuclear-talks-ask-hardliners-195793 ·         https://www.al-monitor.com/originals/2021/11/members-irans-parliament-seek-prosecution-rouhani#ixzz7CaKtXZxN Mohsen Sazegara   @sazegara,  Iranian journalist and pro-democracy political activist; held several high-ranking positions in the government of Mir-Hossein Mousavi

In this special episode. Paul & Stacey sit down with USMC Veteran Rocky Sickmann. Rodney “Rocky” Sickmann graduated from Washington High School in 1976 and immediately entered the U.S. Marine Corps. In 1979, just 28 days into his tour of duty at American Embassy in Tehran, Iran, Sickmann became a player in one of the most terrifying events in U.S. history. On November 4, 1979, after months of turmoil marked by the return of the exiled Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the American Embassy in Tehran was overrun by militants and its employees taken captive. Sergeant Rocky Sickmann, then just 22, was one of 65 Americans taken hostage. Sickmann remained a hostage for 444 days before being released on Jan. 20, 1981 following 14 months of diplomacy by President Jimmy Carter.Three months later, Sickmann was Honorably Discharged after six years in the U.S. Marine Corps and received several accolades during his service including the Prisoner of War Medal, The Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Award of Valor, and Good Conduct Medal. Following the military, he began working in advertising for KMOX radio in St. Louis, Mo. and then entered the private sector for Anheuser-Busch InBev. He spent the next 34 years with the company, most recently as the U.S. National Director for Military and Industry Affairs, until his retirement in July 2016. Sickmann's personal diary, “Iranian Hostage: A Personal Diary of 444 Days in Captivity” is also the only known diary to have been smuggled out of Iran and published. The diary is no longer in publication.  As the U.S. National Director for Military and Industry Affairs at Anheuser-Busch InBev, Sickmann oversaw all Military Special Events, Military and Industry Trade Media Publications, and National Industry Trade Shows. Throughout his career at Anheuser-Busch, Sickmann also played a key role in increasing Anheuser-Busch's market penetration among the Military by training wholesalers, coordinating marketing and publicity, executing national sales promotions, and planning special military events. Sickmann helped coordinate the “Here's to the Heroes Tour” which salutes the men and women of the armed forces, allowing Americans to show their support for the troops via recorded messages filmed on location at community events, celebrations, and festivals nationwide and shared with U.S. troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.Personally and professionally, Sickmann has been fortunate to share his story on many different platforms including ABC News, ESPN, Fox & Friends, Fox News, Los Angeles Times, MSNBC, NFL Time Line Series, The New York Times, to the cast of the Oscar award-winning film Argo (starring Ben Affleck), national and local Veteran and Military organizations, and educational institutions across the country. In August 2016, Sickmann's military and professional experience, coupled with his passion for our armed forces, led him to pursue an opportunity with his favorite non-profit organization: Folds of Honor. In this new role, Sickmann helps advance the Folds mission: To stand in the financial gap of the more than one million dependents adversely affected by war, providing educational scholarships to the children and spouses of those killed or disabled while serving our nation. If you would like to learn more or donate to Folds Of Honor.

In this episode of the Road to Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Shaahin Cheyene. Shaahin is one of the world's top Amazon consultants, an award winning business mogul, author and filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. Shaahin is currently the founder of a brain nutrition startup Accelerated Intelligence where he is positioning the enterprise to be the forerunner in the brain nutrition supplements market. Shaahin is the quintessential American success story. Born in Tehran, Iran in 1975, his family immigrated to America in 1980, during the tumultuous Islamic Revolution. As a young boy, Shaahin knew he was destined for entrepreneurship. Cheyene's passion progressed into several booming small businesses, including a bicycle repair service. He read financial magazines voraciously and gleaned inspiration from the works of Dale Carnegie and Napoleon Hill. As a teenager in the 1990's he jump started his career by inciting and leading the “Smart Drug Movement” with his invention of Herbal Ecstacy, an energizing, herbal supplement designed to stimulate the body. With Herbal Ecstacy, Shaahin founded his first business venture, Global World Media (no longer in operation), a maker of legal intoxicants. He learned early in his career about guerilla branding and he still uses it to sell his products today. Shaahin has invented over 200 award-­winning products, selling millions of units worldwide. After pioneering the breakthrough formulation for Herbal Ecstacy, he expanded his company's offerings with Ecstacy Cigarettes, an herbal alternative to tobacco that many have used to quit smoking. It went on to become the most successful herbal cigarette in the world. Branded the “Willy Wonka of Generation X” Shaahin has been likened to such divergent entrepreneurs as Bill Gates and P.T. Barnum. In the early 2000's, Shaahin's career naturally evolved and matured. He began to work with several major pharmaceutical companies to broadcast the technologies and benefits of herbal medicines to the mainstream. In this process Shaahin was responsible for proliferation of several plant medicines now used in popular naturopathic health regimens. In 2000 Shaahin invented, patented and developed a revolutionary new medicine delivery technology dubbed the Vapir Vaporizer. His invention quickly spearheaded the then burgeoning vaporization industry. He also authored the definitive book on the science of Vaporization, Vapor: The Art and Science of Inhaling Pure Plant Essences. Shaahin prepared Vapir for the public markets but subsequently sold the invention to a private investment group in Silicon Valley in 2006. The Vapir Vaporizer sales are still in the millions worldwide. Shaahin credits the creation of his top selling health supplement Excelerol to his career long love of naturopathic herbal remedies. He remains true to his goals to nurture and help improve the health of the masses with herbal alternatives to harsh chemicals.   Learn more and connect with Shaahin Cheyene by visiting him on Website: https://www.shaahincheyenne.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/S.Cheyene/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/auntier8chel/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/shaahincheyene     Be sure to follow us on Twitter: Twitter.com/to_growth on Facebook: facebook.com/Road2Growth   Subscribe to our podcast across the web: https://www.theenriquezgroup.com/blog Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2Cdmacc iTunes: https://apple.co/2F4zAcn Castbox: http://bit.ly/2F4NfQq Google Play: http://bit.ly/2TxUYQ2 Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKnzMRkl-PurAb32mCLCMeA?view_as=subscriber

The Wires of War: Technology and the Global Struggle for Power by Jacob Helberg From the former news policy lead at Google, an urgent and groundbreaking account of the high-stakes global cyberwar brewing between Western democracies and the autocracies of China and Russia that could potentially crush democracy. From 2016 to 2020, Jacob Helberg led Google's global internal product policy efforts to combat disinformation and foreign interference. During this time, he found himself in the midst of what can only be described as a quickly escalating two-front technology cold war between democracy and autocracy. On the front-end, we're fighting to control the software—applications, news information, social media platforms, and more—of what we see on the screens of our computers, tablets, and phones, a clash which started out primarily with Russia but now increasingly includes China and Iran. Even more ominously, we're also engaged in a hidden back-end battle—largely with China—to control the Internet's hardware, which includes devices like cellular phones, satellites, fiber-optic cables, and 5G networks. This tech-fueled war will shape the world's balance of power for the coming century as autocracies exploit twenty-first-century methods to re-divide the world into twentieth century-style spheres of influence. Helberg cautions that the spoils of this fight are power over every meaningful aspect of our lives, including our economy, our infrastructure, our national security, and ultimately, our national sovereignty. Without a firm partnership with the government, Silicon Valley is unable to protect democracy from the autocrats looking to sabotage it from Beijing to Moscow and Tehran. The stakes of the ongoing cyberwar are no less than our nation's capacity to chart its own future, the freedom of our democratic allies, and even the ability of each of us to control our own fates, Helberg says. And time is quickly running out.

In fact, considering its involvement in military enhancement, cyberwarfare, movement of weapons, and more, one can only come to the conclusion that the self-proclaimed Shiite empire is preparing for war.   One example of its military advancement is the pursuit of new submarines, destroyers, and other naval vessels. And similar to Israel, the Iranian Air Force conducted a large-scale drill last week. Make no mistake – though Iran seems to be putting itself in the spotlight, Israel has been anything but passive about the regime's activity. At the end of last week, the IDF's chief of staff ordered the increase of military exercises should a strike on Tehran's nuclear program prove necessary in the near future.   The Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, bless his heart, even took to Twitter, stating, “Israel needs to set aside tens of billions of dollars - to repair the damage caused by Iran's devastating response to any Israeli military attack on Tehran's nuclear program.”   and now just recently in the news…. Israeli Air Force preparing for strike on Iran's nuclear plants According to The Times of Israel, Israeli's Air Force has set aside funding and updated its training schedule for a potential future mission to destroy Iran's growing nuclear program: In light of growing uncertainty regarding a return by Iran to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, amid long-stalled negotiations with the United States, the Israel Defense Forces in recent months has ramped up its efforts to prepare a credible military threat against Tehran's nuclear facilities. Israeli government officials have been warning about this possibility for weeks now. In September, I wrote how Iran was less than a month from nuclear capability. Now that we have passed that timeline, Israel seems to be moving closer to an attack...

Howie Hawkins, 2020 Green Party presidential candidate, trade unionist, and activist, joins us to talk about Biden's incredible shrinking infrastructure bill, which is now being referred to as a “framework” after popular proposals like paid family leave, lowering prescription drug prices, an expansion for Medicare, and others, have been dropped after infighting within the Democratic Party. We talk about how the Democrats seem to be unable to govern and enact policies for the people even after controlling the White House and Congress, and the potential political fallout due to this inertia. Mohammad Marandi, professor of English literature and Orientalism at the University of Tehran, joins us to talk about Iran's top negotiator announcing that Iran would rejoin international talks on its nuclear program, whether the U.S. will join Iran and Europe at the negotiating table, considering its long-standing belligerent tone and long standing position of trying to isolate Iran through international forums and sanctions. We also talk about how the U.S. global sanctions regime could become so large that it would actually force its enemies to interact more and more, and how Iran is reaching out to potential allies to stave off its crippling effects.Afeni, member of Freedom Fighters DC and abolitionist-in-training, and Jacqui Luqman, co-host of By Any Means Necessary on Radio Sputnik, join us to talk about the protests by students at Howard University in DC to highlight the housing conditions on campus, how the administration has failed to provide the necessary resources for students, and how these protests are bringing to light the class issues within Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).Kevin Gosztola, journalist, writer for Shadowproof.com and co-host of the podcast Unauthorized Disclosure, joins us to talk about the U.S. appeal in London over the extradition of Julian Assange, arguing that he will be treated fairly in the U.S., and how the treatment of whistleblowers by the U.S. undermines their case for extradition. We also talk about the protests in support of Assange, and whether recent revelations of U.S potential actions against Assange will have any effect on judges' decisions.

EPISODE NOTE: Content warning for sounds of violence (gunshots); and spoiler alert for films mentioned belowGUESTAlyx is currently a Deputy Campaign Director on Policing and Incarceration at the Action Center on Race and the Economy (ACRE), organizes with BYP100 Chicago, and is a co-founder and writer with LEFT OUT Magazine. Her writing and activism are centered around the momentum and challenges of building Black power and self-determination. Her work at ACRE currently focuses on the relationship between the finance industry and policing, racialized capitalism, and how they exacerbate oppressions.OVERVIEWBrownTown spills even more the tea on in part two of the surveillance capitalism and abolitionist tech conversation with Alyx Goodwin. The team finishes their lengthy two-part discussion by breaking down myths of tech neutrality, offering anti-capitalist and anti-authoritarian critiques of dystopian tech action movies, and lean into what their abolitionist tech future  looks like.Alyx and BrownTown pick up where they left off centering a couple reminders and updates before the dig in. The gang discusses the observations and broader lessons from the October 4th Chicago Police Department budget hearing, then-updates of the #StopShotSpotter campaign (1, 2), and the global ramifications of Facebook going down for several hours before unpacking policing as a logic, disaster capitalism, and the bias of tech. Alyx and Caullen discuss how prison tech came home during COVID-19 lockdowns and the advantages of public tech. David re-introduces the role of popular culture in both reinforcing copaganda and problematic systems while also offering heightened critiques of such "fictional" future worlds with tech and spectacle at the forefront. Caullen offers his abolitionist and anti-capitalist critiques of RoboCop (1987) and its early 90's sequels, RoboCop (2014), The Running Man (1987), Demolition Man (1993), and Minority Report (2002) while David and Alyx build out the real world implications, deducing the highly reflexive relationship between art and culture. Once again, they close out encouraging us to interrogate not only the uses of new technologies, but the technologies themselves as well as the unaltered violent systems that they often embolden.

Tehran has signaled that it is willing to return to JCPOA talks, and the threats are sure to deter Iran's openness to dialogue. Blinken suggested the US should encourage more deals like the Abraham Accords to create a pact between Israel and Palestine. However, the Abraham Accords were not peace deals, but rather US payoffs to Muslim states to end their objection to Israel's apartheid against the Palestinians.  Kyle discusses Congress considering a bill that transfers legislative war powers to the president. The proposed law would allow the president to determine if the US was to go to war with China over Taiwan. The bill is based on a false understanding of US foreign policy and military strategy.  Kyle updates US intervention in the Horn of Africa. Tigrayan forces in Ethiopia recently claimed the central government opened a new offensive. In response, the US is considering sanctions against Ethiopia. Biden has also invited the head of neighboring Kenya to the White House.

Her father wasn't the only martyr of the persecuted Iranian church that Rashin knew well.

On COI #173, Dave DeCamp – News Editor at Antiwar.com – returns to the show to discuss recent news about China and Iran. Upon taking office, Biden had a golden opportunity to undo a key Trump blunder and return to the Iran nuclear agreement. However, Biden delayed action and is now struggling to make any progress with a new president in Tehran. Israel also remains a perpetual thorn in the side of diplomacy in the region, Dave and Kyle explain.  The US continues to use Taiwan to provoke China. Washington's increased diplomatic ties with the island, as well as weapons sales, have pushed the two even further from Beijing's decades-old 'One China' policy. The US is also increasing its military presence in the region with the ‘AUKUS' agreement with the UK and Australia, a pact designed to counter China in the Indo-Pacific.

Rashin Soodmand was 13 years old when her father, Pastor Hossein Soodmand, was executed in Iran for the crime of apostasy. Rashin remembers that day as a strange mix of sadness and joy as she, her family and members of their church dealt with the loss of Pastor Soodmand while at the same time celebrating his life and the fact that he had stood boldly in the face of Christian persecution and threats. Rashin will tell how church leaders encouraged Pastor Hossein to leave Iran and go somewhere safer. He refused; he knew that for him to flee would discourage the hearts of his congregation. She'll describe the man she knew—a man who genuinely loved people, both Christians and Muslims—and tell of the last time she saw her dad. To learn more about the current ministry activities of Rashin and her husband, Amir, visit the Torch Ministries web site. Next month Christians around the world will join in prayer for persecuted Christians on the International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians. Download your free IDOP resources now.

This latest defiance is another example of Iran's new leadership not fearing much retaliation from the West. FOX's Eben Brown speaks to Behnam Ben Taleblu, Senior Fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, about this latest move to gain an advantage in the stalled nuclear talks.
