bid to cover the world with the japanese rule, and they picked china as the first victim. ♪ >> hidiyoshi invaded korea, but chinese from other provinces came to the aid of the koreans. the japs were stuck, and when hidiyoshi died suddenly, the invasion was called off. they did a good job of plunder. they brought back 30,000 pickled ears and noses of chinese and koreans killed in battle. these they buried in what is now known as the ear mound in the city of kyoto. something new came to these bloodthirsty people, something new and strange. in the year 1521, magellan had sailed around the world to the philippines. in his wake came spanish and portuguese missionaries who eventually visited the japanese islands. the strange new thing they brought was christianity, the revolutionary doctrine of peace on earth and the equality and brotherhood of man. here was something that dignified the lowly japanese serfs as human beings. soon there were some 200 churches and over 200,000 converts. ♪ >> the warlords became practical. they thought they were teaching tolerance, peace, and e

in china or anywhere else, why the united states plan to use nuclear weapons against them. well this triggered an outpouring very mournment sentiments from the prime minist minister. he began to speak. he said the use of atomic weapons would lead to the destruction of all we hold dear. ourselves, our families, our pressures and even if some of us temporarily survive in some deep cellar there will be nothing to do but take a pill to end it all. not a good conference. his announcement to use nuclear weapons in the case of war was news that out strips anything else so again here are two old friends that know each other intimately very well. really admire and indeed deeply love each other but are on completely opposite sides of this question. how do you use nuclear weapons in the cold r war. how do you use them? to deter or threaten or even to bomb the other side? they were on opposite side of that at the bait and then the third area of debate, that i would point to is on indo china. you'll recall that the french were fighting their last sad tragic battle in vietnam at the ill fated. eis

bill thomas. we were struggling with china. so i said to them, i would like to go to china and i would like to go myself. and i would like to spend a week there to really understand what it was all about. and bill at first said to me, because the chairman has the power in this institution of approving travel or not, at first he said to me, sandy, how are you going to vote? and then i said, that is why i'm going. and bill said, that is exactly why you should be going and he signed on and off i went. and i got into terrible political trouble as a result because i came back and worked with amendments, with bill thomas' help, and amendment was added, which passed, and the rest is history. and for a year or two, it is my political misery. then the ambulance within the committee began to be less close, in terms of partisanship and bipartisanship. and charlie and i began to work on trade issues and to essentially negotiate a free trade agreement with peru. but there was still some major bipartisanship at that time. so i just want to say a few words about that and i don't want to gloss over th

, china, europe, whatever, you have to embrace ambiguity. keep in mind that the russians at this point had killed a million afghans. they had also -- and they do it quite violently. similar to what you see in the ukraine, carpet bombing, execution style. so context is very important here. so what's this flag of friendship all about? in 1989, the cia and pakistan's intelligence agency, isi, interservices intelligence, decided that it was time after the soviets had withdrawn to establish a foothold inside afghanistan. any insurgency needs to establish a foothold. this is the battle of jalalabad. this is the battle outside of the airstrip in jalalabad. in is the rag tag army, mainly pashtuns. you can see the rag tag quality of this and particularly this captured russian fur hat. he had obviously gotten that from a garrison they had already overrun. this is about a three-hour drive from the pakistan border in the kaber pass. keep in mind in the image, i kind of knew it, but the arabs, bin laden in particular was about two miles away over this ridge here. they were also at the airport which was
