Iran, United States, Israel discussed on John Batchelor


To be in a shooting war with Iran so I guess there are other metaphors but in any event Iran is doing us the favor of speaking aloud about how they do not intend to comply or maintain compliance or transparency or permit inspections or do anything that is consistent with the promises they made in J. CPO way a it is to your knowledge about com is this non compliance it issue for our European allies that remain reluctant to recognize it doesn't appear so at because their French a tone about a fifteen billion dollar bailout and a by pass of American sanctions talk about stakes next even the one French officials said today that none of this happens until the Ron pledges compliance with the U. N. requirements and but in the meantime there's a delegation in Paris today of Iranians who are trying to finalize the details France won't reveal them at the United States has said clearly that they will not allow the fifteen billion dollars at anybody that that's what subject people to to sanctions and that more sanctions are coming the United States in fact now offered fifteen million dollars for leads to disrupt the IRGC operations which is a large shipping network that supposedly passed off of a half a billion dollars in oil last year and is still trying to add them in sell Iranian oil in Spain headed by the former minister of petroleum so it's it's and with the fictional okay and it's directed by the I. O. G. C. from the information that we have a Iran blocked the U. N. from inspecting the site that Israel identified with they said that the the the there was a a storage place for three hundred tons of new. your related equipment in fifty including fifteen kilograms of radioactive material the Iranians said no more no T. inspections and now how many in direct response to your question. I said we are going to phase three of our withdrawing from the obligations of of the J. C. P. O. a Swiss publicly repudiating this at the same time that the Europeans are bending over backwards trying to find ways to induce them even though they are blatantly saying we're in violation and the the United States sanction twenty six peoples and an entity's these are effective sanctions us most tied to the R. G. C. L. cords era and the the year shipping that but the French are sending all the wrong signs even if they say that they have to be in compliance with the F. E. T. F. you know the financial action task force conditions but there's no way that they have till now been in compliance and they also have to show that they're not to comply with the you know into in in terms of the money laundering that they are in forcing the money laundering restrictions so far none of this happened in the last sanctions US put was on the space program because they're developing ballistic missiles under the guise of a space program that we've talked about you know for four satellites for peaceful purposes when in fact they were using that for the list of missiles that will carry warheads there's a lot of fact based policy going on with the trump administration I'm I don't I don't want them to get ahead of themselves Malcolm let's go to the Iranian regime they fire their airforce chief in may man it's been in his job for nine years what did he do beat the books what he didn't do it it's more likely the story and it's really interesting because we were all waiting for the issue to to drop this is brigadier general is my yearly who was fired because he did not add it didn't reveal the violations of Iranian airspace by Israeli Air Force F. thirty five jet fighters and it's interesting that Iran's air defense system did detective but nor did the. Russian S. three hundred anti missile system detect them and and respond and Israeli kept information secret it seems and it was reported how many suspects the Russians gave Israel the secret code to access the S. three hundred great are and to be activated well when they carried out the raid which sent an important message to how many that he is not beyond reaching he keeps thinking that you know they will be able to strike Israel they're moving people out of main city centres and therefore Israel's retaliation won't be as effective well he got it he got a wake up call about the when Israel made clear that they have the capacity to knock on his door now can you recall an incident late in the late in the Cold War when a young person from Germany landed a small aircraft in Moscow's Red Square and there was no explanation for the the fact that the famed Russian defense network did did. right and may be used to smuggle out I'm one is this a comparable issue you know the big bad wolf doesn't have any lies if in the F. thirty five can go in and out of your air space even if the airforce generalize about it Malcolm that's a problem it is a problem especially that that's why I think they were so embarrassed by a wham barrister defense and and the fact that they were so exposed they are obviously you know trying to shore up their defenses we know now the new base at the first base from scratch I think that that could his building any rock in they're planning to to put thousands of troops there and perhaps guided missiles and thinking that they will not draw fire from Israel or at least if Israel has to re aspen to it you know hit in Iraq and not in in the run of but I think the the are the sanctions which are working a both of his black and on on the run a a if the Europeans would only go along and would would shape up in terms of of the response to to what is being done and to Iran's aggression we we saw a case that was revealed today of two Iranians who came with false passports Argentina where we know that Iranian agents carried out the suicide bombings a few years ago that were devastating and they carried for full force passports claiming to be Israelis when in fact they clearly weren't and have been arrested so we have so many cases of a run aggression Iran it actions to destabilize regimes with her doing that with the who sees what they're doing again sorry we did it cetera that the the European okay your actions can only encourage them to believe and to reset today the US treasury is nothing more than a jail ward in. because he knows that this is it is having an impact and that they are deeply concerned about the long term implications Malcolm do you think all these ma hops I use an Assyrian word my mother taught me I don't have much of it but in any event these mops that's me the big deals do you think they'll have accounts and apartments in Paris waiting for. they always have had a you do do member to Las the minister of defense the infamous one I know that he had that he went to Paris in fact and this was the place where many of them kept money to one of the reasons why the sanctions against the Jamaat bank is important because it was a transfer point for them many of the leadership go to Paris and we know that they have funds is sequestered and if we know it we could guess at the I a match in certain authorities would notice well I wonder welcome one sanctions really begin to fight you could send somebody his private banking number from Paris along with the photographs of his Peter chair that is not a longer wait for that would be that would be persuasive Balcom of the sea it was certainly be strong message I can't imagine who would have that good information Malcolm good night Sir we're gonna do gooders quick right I'm a cancer survivor yes you and I pay close attention because once you while you once you cross the line into cancer surviving you are keen on other people joining you and you have information from Israel that seems exceedingly promising for the twenty first century Israel's you know as I technician in the start up nation and they produce often together with the United States with researchers in both countries but you you have a case of Dr Sharon charm who just received FDA approval this week for a in a pivotal trial for X. P. O. V. I. O. I don't know how to pronounce it but forty percent of leukemia patients so they're trimmers tumors shrink while patient life expectancy increased three to five times and the drug is undergoing advanced clinical trials for patients with myeloma lymphoma sarcoma uterine cancer and brain cancer it's it's it's so hopeful and so wonderful that if Israel didn't have to spend all of the energy that it does on defense and fighting terrorism itself can only imagine how many more things like this would come at out of the it creative and. but mom and mines and environment that exists there Malcolm how line conference the president's major American Jewish organizations the only man who can do Israeli politics in less than two minutes and we're going to Israel next to talk about Israeli politics and I'll ask Malcolm that question about groundhog day one more time John that's. balance of nature changing the world one life at a time what are your your guys commercial almost everything that happens with a lot of these people like yours game and everything I mean that stroke and made me alive sixteen are yet arthritis in my hands and my elbows from doing carpet games game in Pauley non you don't notice it when it first happened but as time goes by that you stop for the morning. you know I mean you don't mean a thing it's just gone it just all these little things that. experience the balance.
