Memorializing Kosciuszko | Program |

[Original Airdate: February 3, 2014] Cameras capture the sculpture of Polish patriot and military man Tadeusz Kosciuszko being removed from its perch at Kosciuszko Park and shipped to an art restoration facility in Ohio for a complete overhaul and cleaning. The Polish general's life and his involvement with George Washington and the American Revolution is traced, as is his role in designing defense fortifications at West Point, his return to Poland and his struggle on behalf of Polish independence, his capture by the Tsar's forces and his eventual return to the United States in 1796.

Poland: Erdogan demands 'clear declaration' that Turkey cannot join EU

Poland: Erdogan demands 'clear declaration' that Turkey cannot join EU

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda in Warsaw on Tuesday in a bid to boost trade between the two countries and to propel EU accession talks. SOT, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish President (Turkish): "I would like to raise the issue of our accession to the European Union. We have full support of Poland on this issue. No- The European Union does not open its borders to us, this process has continued since 1963." SOT, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish President (Turkish): "They said that Turkey cannot, that its accession (to the EU) is not possible. I would like to hear a clear declaration and statement. Just do not give us the run-around." SOT, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish President, (Turkish): "Turks do not need visas for Latin America. At the same time, Turkey is negotiating accession to the European Union and visas to the EU are required. This is a rather strange situation, so I would expect my friends who are members of the European Union, to discuss this topic. Especially since the issue of visa liberalisation has already been included in the declaration."

How to Deal with a Crisis: Henry Kissinger on Negotiation Skills, Tactics (2003)

How to Deal with a Crisis: Henry Kissinger on Negotiation Skills, Tactics (2003)

Henry Alfred Kissinger (born Heinz Alfred Kissinger; Born May 27, 1923) is an American diplomat and political scientist. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743249119/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0743249119&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=3d6756f7e7c523efaabe2a5250516b0b He served as National Security Advisor and later concurrently as United States Secretary of State in the administrations of presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. For his actions negotiating the ceasefire in Vietnam (though never realized), Kissinger received the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize under controversial circumstances, with two members of the committee resigning in protest. After his term, his advice has been sought by world leaders including subsequent U.S. presidents. A proponent of Realpolitik, Kissinger played a prominent role in United States foreign policy between 1969 and 1977. During this period, he pioneered the policy of détente with the Soviet Union, orchestrated the opening of relations with the People's Republic of China, and negotiated the Paris Peace Accords, ending American involvement in the Vietnam War. Kissinger's Realpolitik resulted in controversial policies such as U.S. support for Pakistan, despite its genocidal actions during the Bangladesh War.[3] He is the founder and chairman of Kissinger Associates, an international consulting firm. Kissinger has been a prolific author of books on politics and international relations with over one dozen books authored. General opinion of Henry Kissinger remains widely divided. Several scholars have ranked Kissinger as the most effective U.S. Secretary of State since 1965.[4] Various activists and human rights lawyers, however, have sought his prosecution for alleged war crimes. At the height of Kissinger's prominence, many commented on his wit. In February 1972, at the Washington Press Club annual congressional dinner, "Kissinger mocked his reputation as a secret swinger."[111] The insight, "Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac", is widely attributed to him, although Kissinger was paraphrasing Napoleon Bonaparte.[112] Some scholars have ranked Kissinger as the most effective U.S. Secretary of State in the 50 years to 2015.[4] A number of activists and human rights lawyers have sought his prosecution for alleged war crimes.[5][113] According to historian and Kissinger biographer Niall Ferguson, however, accusing Kissinger alone of war crimes "requires a double standard" because "nearly all the secretaries of state ... and nearly all the presidents" have taken similar actions.[114] Kissinger has shied away from mainstream media and cable talk-shows. He granted a rare interview to the producers of a documentary examining the underpinnings of the 1979 peace treaty between Israel and Egypt entitled Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace.[115] In the film, Kissinger revealed how close he felt the world came to nuclear war during the 1973 Yom Kippur War launched by Egypt and Syria against Israel. Attempts have been made to attach liability to Kissinger for injustices in American foreign policy during his tenure in government. In September 2001, relatives and survivors of General Rene Schneider, the former head of the Chilean general staff, commenced civil proceedings in Federal Court in Washington, DC, and, in April 2002, a petition for Kissinger's arrest was filed in the High Court in London by human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell,[116] citing the destruction of civilian populations and the environment in Indochina during the years 1969-75. Both suits were determined to lack legal foundation and were dismissed before trial.[117] Christopher Hitchens, the British-American journalist and author, was highly critical of Kissinger, authoring The Trial of Henry Kissinger, in which Hitchens called for the prosecution of Kissinger "for war crimes, for crimes against humanity, and for offenses against common or customary or international law, including conspiracy to commit murder, kidnap, and torture".[118][119][120][121] In 2011, Chimerica Media released an interview-based documentary, titled Kissinger, in which Kissinger "reflects on some of his most important and controversial decisions" during his tenure as Secretary of State. Kissinger's record was brought up during the 2016 Democratic Party presidential primaries. Hillary Clinton has cultivated a close relationship with Kissinger, describing him as a "friend" and a source of "counsel." During the Democratic Primary Debates, Clinton touted Kissinger's praise for her record as Secretary of State. In response, candidate Bernie Sanders issued a critique of Kissinger's foreign policy, declaring: "I am proud to say that Henry Kissinger is not my friend. I will not take advice from Henry Kissinger." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Kissinger
