"We've got a follow up on that story we discussed yesterday the woman eating on the metro and all of the woke fell out there. After impact the head of the metro union was on morning, all running Vincent Mary. We'll play a little bit of that interview. Because he said some things that sort of go against the narrative, we've been hearing about this story. So we'll we'll get into that in a bit. Also, Byron York Washington examiner joins us at five o'clock right now, very happy to be joined by the one and only ally lake Bloomberg opinion, columnists talk about this story. That's out there about thanks for joining us, this idea that Iran or the the US and the Trump administration are what war gaming or putting together some sort of invasion plan where did the story come from. Well, I mean, I'm sure the the Pentagon comes up with or plans all the time given. Total are vague credible. Intelligence about threats emanating Iran's revolutionary guard corps. It's understandable that they White House ask the Pentagon update those war plans. The New York Times got a hold of it. But at this point, I don't think we're on the eve of, you know, another Iraq when it comes to law, and I would just note that this afternoon in Iran and televised speeches, you know, top of advisors. The supreme leader of Iran is allowing combination that we're not looking to get into a war with the United States. And I think it's one of those rare moments where the supreme leader is probably telling the truth, which is why you're seeing the attacks that we saw in the United United Arab Emirates territorial waters and front strike on Saudi oil facilities from the rebels. Interestingly are tacking not USC. Persons or US facilities, but our allies where there's some ambiguity about whether the United States militarily respond to that. So in that respect, I think that this is a lot of posturing on both sides of the approving to see what they can get away with. But at this point, I don't think the Iranians want any kind of confrontation with Trump administration, and you know, they're back into a corner because their diplomatic play to try to get the Europeans to violate the new sanctions on their oil sector has not really worked and probably can't work. So this point kind of inequality and flailing will disagree between the lines of what you're saying realized sounds like there's no real news here in I in the Pentagon, actually, putting together military strategies just in case against a country like Iran. I mean, would it surprise you to learn that during the Obama minute. Ration-? A similar action was taken in terms of having the defense department drought plans and revise their their readiness. Sure, there was there was there was the differences that you had a president that was desperate for deal with the Iranians almost very beginning. Despite the imposition of severe sanctions on your audience Konomi at the end of his first from the beginning of a second term. But you know, I mean abominated very clear when he came into office that he was seeking and, you know, go to let her to the supreme leader Trump has made it clear that he hated the Iran deal that was created by John Kerry and the Europeans and the Russians the Chinese, and then that he was getting out of it did Iran and puff. They have not really violated in a significant way. The terms of the deal, certainly you could say after the Israelis published or publicized. The findings of the of their nuclear archive that would be something that they should have probably given to the I E A, but they've not done anything in terms of violating the limits of low enriched uranium they have to kind of compile. So when I think is interesting here is that, you know, you see kind of chorus of what sometimes called the echo chamber, which is journalists and think tank types and ex-officials, you, you know, are there to sort of, you know, part of the information campaign for the nuclear deal who are claiming this could be a false flag or that the US is trying to provoke you run into confrontation. But what we seeing again is that you know, it Ron attacks the United States and attempts to do really gained against the US when it believes the US, president wouldn't dare attack them if it has the impression that John Bolton and Mike Pompeo we. Trump himself is really kinda run. They really watch their step in some ways. So to me, it's fairly interesting to see the see all of new bring right now that does not mean that we should rest easy because it's still a big deal that are that US allies in the region are going to be doing with increased tax. We certainly can't have a pattern of Iranians trying to advertise attack vessels carrying oil, international, waters or other territory waters. That's a very serious provocation. But so far, I don't I think that they would say would be crazy to attack and they will attack, you know, US forces in Syria or Iraq or US installations in the region at this point. I think that they know that they did that that would be the pretext. Enough reason to probably get congress to support military strikes against the Iranians of that. Okay. So it sounds like this reaction, though, that we've seen with regard to this report that there's the been some sort of military plan discussed or contemplated is is somewhat overwrought and and clearly over somewhat. All right. Let me I'd love to flip you over. Because you've written about the the Russian connection in Venezuela. I'll be honest based on what we saw about ten days ago on the streets of Caracas. I thought that we would have already seen sort of the end of the Madero regime in Venezuela where things stand here right now. And how is Russia connected there? Well, I Russia's connected because it has the pride technicians to and other kind of military special ops types, or people were expert hybrid or fair to help prop up Maderas Racine's. They don't have anything like that sort of numbers are or or military power. Or in Venezuela that they eventually ended up sending Syria, but they have you know, an and what they've been accused of by sector say pump peyot when all this was going down at the end of April was that they told Madero to not get on the plane that was ready to go to Cuba, as we learn more and more about what happened in the planning of of of that of of those events that looks like the head of the Venezuelan supreme fourth illegitimate, one up real one in exile had sort of entertained conversations of recognizing Widodo, but you know, ask questions about why couldn't be me. And that's when things began to break down break down. And then at the same time the head of, you know, dictators, you know, secret police has defected effectively to the other side. And you know, we we now know that in Widodo has yet to be arrested, although some of his. Top aides happened which is which is which is dangerous. But at this point, I do think that you know, at a certain point the Russian need to change their position because they've when. Enormous amount of money for infrastructure in Venezuela. They'll never be repaid as long as Madurai was in power because as long as I was in power. There will be secondary sanctions on Venezuelan oil. So, you know, it's in it's in Russia's interest to see a transition as well, we we would look at this very differently. But I do think at the end of the day if Putin wants his money back get quite interesting, if he wants any return on investment, maybe that's Trump's approach, you know, as a businessman you on any return on this investment. It's time to drop Madero. Yeah. We we shall see lake. Always going to talk to you, sir. Thanks for joining us. All right. Thank you. Then Bloomberg opinion columnist element ally.

"The Ben Shapiro show. Lot coming up for you this hour little bit later on in the hour. We'll be joined by Michael Brenton Dorothy of national review senior editor over there. It's going to join us to talk about nationalism in his new book. My father left me, I Roland in American son searched for home. We'll also be talking about infrastructure week finally and long last infrastructure week. It's become sort of a running joke. Every time President Trump announces infrastructure. Wake like legitimately every time. There is some sort of massive move some sort of incredible move by the Democrats to drive a wedge between infrastructure and President Trump. But apparently now we're gonna talk infrastructure, so we'll get to that in a little while. However, we begin this hour with an update from Venezuela. According to the New York Times Venezuela continues to be a tinderbox one white. Oh, who is the interim president of Venezuela? The opposition president who has declared himself president Venezuela whose effort to topple mR Madero has made little headway since he declared himself. Interim president. January two canoe step today. According to the New York Times by making his case publicly at a military base in the heart of the capital today. Brave soldiers brave patriots brave men attached to the constitution of followed. Our call quite oh said in a video posted on social media speaking from Generalissimo Francisco Moreno airbase a military airport in Caracas known as Carl Lockhart Lada quite oh claims that the definitive end of the user patients starts today. It was not clear how many civilians or soldiers would he'd him. He hind. Why does Leopoldo Lopez a member of his party who is under house arrest after staging protests in two thousand fourteen mopus and on Twitter he'd been released by soldiers? I was released by the military on the orders of the constitution and president of WTO. He wrote in his first Twitter posts 2017, everyone mobilize. It's time to conquer for freedom. Quite oh, now says a wide swath of the military has backed including top commanders, his declined to release their names their generals, Lieutenant colonels or majors. They're colonels. It's a reflection of the country. He said. Liberal zero. However, the president the socialist dictator of Venezuela insistence Twitter posted the military was on his side. He said the commanders had assured him of their loyalty to the people of the constitution. And to the fatherland's you have to separate people declaring themselves presidents only one legally doing. So that person would be on white, oh who does have legal legitimacy that has been recognized by sixty odd countries, including the United States, the Durose apparently unleashing his own troops on civilians are merely protesting video shows Medeiros vehicles running over protesters is really horrific running into massive crowds of protesters and killing them presumably or hey Rodriguez. The government's information minister he said on Twitter. The government was confronting deactivating small group of military trainers that he said had taken over the base to promote a coup. He blamed the cool mongering ultra right, but she said push for violent agenda for months in Venezuela. One of the beautiful things about being socialists that everyone else is old Tra. Right wing. Even if like, white, oh, you are a social democrat. The opposition to quite oh is calling. This a coup legally speaking, this is not a coup ally lake as a piece over a Bloomberg explaining he says, this is not a coup says, you would not know this from the early news coverage Trump aids back unfolding Venezuela coup. Attempts reads, a typical headline in politico CNN blurred coupons men is Waylon. It's chiron. It is now mended that headline to call it. An uprising CNN is hilariously enough calling. It a coup, which is the language of nNcholas, Missouri. Even though Medeiros regime has now taken CNN off the air. It's always a bad sign when a regime wants to take all the news outlets off the air all together. The headlines matched the messaging of nNcholas MS regime as the country's information minister tweeted, the events is a small group of traders attempting a coup all of this is wrong says Eli lake for a few reasons to star the dissatisfaction in Venezuela appears to rise to higher levels than the government cares to admit, for example, one source close to white does. Interim government tweeted out on Tuesday morning that soldiers that were standing guard at the home of Leopold the Lopez. We mentioned told him he was free to go. He'd been under house arrest since July of twenty seventeen. US in Venezuela. Interim government officials have also said that in recent months there have been back channel communications between white. Oh, steam and military leaders the planning for the uprising today has been underway for months in public quite oh has passed the national assembly to adopt measures offering amnesty for military officers who have not engaged in violent crimes privately. The opposition military have managed to submerge subvert the Madero regimes blocking of electric communications by delivering messages by hand and arranging face to face meetings, which is one of the reasons the white oak could actually address the country on Tuesday morning from an air force base without being harmed or captured. Quite always the reason that this rebellion is not a coup. The interim president is recognized by the US and dozens of other nations and has democratic legitimacy in may two thousand eighteen the d'oro won a so called election that no serious outside. Observer thought was free or fair his second term began on January tenth which is when the Venezuelan supreme court, which is currently in exile ruled that Missouri had exceeded his authority by staying in power after his legitimate term in office. Ula lake says the bottom line is that after January tenth sequence of events began that ended with WTO invoking the provisions of the Venezuelan constitution that makes the leader of the national assembly. Interim president when the presidency is vacated Madero has de-legitimize the institution of the national assembly. His it with an emergency body, basically a rump. Those initially created change the constitution in his favor. He's packed the courts he's arrested. His opponents he's put his country in hot to loans from China and Russia. He's allowed Cuban staff, the top levels of security and intelligence services. Why does not engaged in a coup quite always trying to save? Whatever democracy is left in his country. That's what's happening in Venezuela right now. And it is amazing to watch his silence about all of this. It's amazing that that everybody is is so quiet on the left about all of this. You're saying Ted Cruz speak out about this. You're Rubio speak out about this Mike Pompeo has spoken out about all of this. And yet, oddly, I'm not hearing anything from the Justice Democrats. I'm not hearing anything from AFC. I'm not hearing anything from Ilhan, Omar. I'm not hearing anything from these folks. And the media are treating this as though it's sort of happening, but they're treating with kid gloves because they're afraid that President Trump is going to get militarily involved. Now, there is not a lot of there's not a lot of evidence. At this point the United States wants to get directly militarily involved in Venezuela. Even though the Russian government has been trying to do. So we presumably are arming the opposition as we should. Apparently. There's not been a single tweet or statement today from Alexandra Okaz, Cortez Ilhan, Omar or Bernie Sanders. All three have refused to nounce nNcholas Maduro in the past. All three have suggested that American intervention in. Venezuela would be morally unjustifiable. Even as we watch these human rights violations carried out in the south. It's pretty impressive to watch left pretend that they're not pro socialism while remaining rather silent. With regard to all of this stuff. It's why would they do this? They were in favor of radical version of socialism that includes Venezuela. Why not just say this garbage needs to go? He's being replaced by another leftist after all. Why does not right winger and yet, and yet the fact that the left has retained a certain level of apparently sympathy from Durose regime is pretty insane. It's pretty wild. It's an end. It is telling it is telling. Defecting soldiers are firing back against promo forces in order to protect people who are in Venezuela right now. Try struggling to protest. The exile Venezuelan court is trying to protect quite does legitimacy and the legitimacy of the democratic system as well. Is worth noting here that gun ownership gun ownership is not something that is open to people in Venezuela. MSNBC actually ran a report today about how nobody in Venezuela had a gun. MSNBC reporter at Kerry Sanders. Unwittingly made the American case for the second amendment during the report Tuesday on the political upheaval in Venezuela. According to Andrew Koogle anchor. Andrew Mitchell introduced Sanders for his report by commenting on surprising ability of Venezuelan, dictator nNcholas Maduro to stay in power. Despite the pressure on him to step down. Sanders said quote, not only hanging on he appears to still control the military. You have to understand in. Venezuela gun ownership is not something that is open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as nNcholas Maduro controls the military, he controls the country. Weird. I don't remember people unless in the United States recognizing that that's the truth everywhere that if the government has monopoly on guns. They also have not only on power the country did ban private gun ownership in two thousand twelve now seems like it would have been a good time for civilians in Venezuela to have power. So that they can fight back against the military that apparently is entering humvees and running over citizens in the streets. You societas press have said reports that white oh took to the streets to protest Missouri's government called on the military to join them wouldn't have been nice. If members of the public had been able to arm themselves. Dictatorship can happen virtually anywhere so long as there is no one who is there to stop it. The fact that only now is left realizing this is pretty astonishing. Well, the second we'll get you more updates from Venezuela. I when President Trump says that America will never be a socialist country. He couldn't be more. Right. That's why it's so troubling that a proposal from the department of health and human services would move in that direction, the international drug pricing index would adopt socialist price controls set by foreign countries today. Americans get access to cutting edge therapies for diseases like cancer, nearly two years before other countries the future holds incredible promise.

"Hand here in Washington DC. He is going to lead the United States efforts on the question of Venezuela. And we discussed this yesterday with ally lake it is a tangled situation and going to be a very tricky diplomatic. Arena for Mr. Abrahams to operate in. But it sounds like a pretty good choice on behalf of the Trump administration to take up their efforts to talk a little bit about what's going on on the ground there. And what the United States must do to help out. The people of Venezuela is conservative political activists and a native Venezuelan, Debbie Souza. Thank you so much for joining us, Mr. Souza, thank you for having me and for giving me this opportunity to to talk to you about about what's going on. Well, before we get to the politics of it and the potential coup and the strong arm tactics talked to me about as a Venezuelan when you see what's happening in the streets there when you see the people rising up. Finally, it looks like to take back their country and demand some some liberty. Tell me what that says, do you? Well, you know, I still have family there. So it's it really breaks my heart to see what what has happened in Venezuela over the last twenty years because this what's going on in the strip. I've been happening for oh. Since twenty thirteen since my Ludo took took over the country. So this is this is definitely not not something that's new, but it is a relief that finally Venezuela is getting some attention from from America's well, if the international community, and and that they are they are seeing what what my Buddha doodo regime has done to the people of Venezuela and to the country. How important it is a bit of a tangled situation, but we now have two different individuals vying for the presidency, the United States along with other international observers has ruled the reelection of Maduro last year was corrupt and and invalid. So how important is the president's leadership in America's leadership in seeing this through now for the Venezuelan people? Well, it's extremely important. We have to make sure that these elections are not fraud. They have been actually since. Ooh, charters who was president from nineteen ninety nine to two thousand thirteen when he when he died, so these elections have been fraudulent ever since ever since the socialist regime has took over the country. You know, this is nothing you in fact when Chavez ran for president several years ago. Jimmy Carter actually went down to Venezuelan and announced that it was actually a legitimate election, which it was not. So it is extremely important that we put pressure on on the regime, and we do not allow for this to happen again because he's a tyrant and did tater, and he does not want to go out without a fight w D'Souza. There's a lot of Americans who will look at this. And they'll say, yes, I I understand. And that's and I do you know personally feel. Terrible for the people of Venezuela. And yes, he's a tyrant. But there's a lot of tyrants around the world. And there's a lot of starving. Poor people around the world. Why should we care about Venezuela? How does this affect the United States? What do you say? So national security is something that nobody talks about when it comes to Venezuela. It's become a hotbed for Islamic terrorism via Iran. It's also a stomping ground for Russia and China that whole interests there Venezuela's only about two thousand miles away from our shores, and if it ever becomes a nuclear launching pad for Iran, it would probably participate precipitate a second Cuban missile crisis. It's extremely important that we we don't allow this to happen. We don't allow vacuum to occur. I also we only have a minute left. But when you see Alexandria, Cossio Cortez and Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in this whole push this trendy push toward socialism in America. It must make your blood boil knowing what it did to your country. Oh, it does make my blood boil because you know, the other thing is is I can't believe that Americans have forgotten the lessons of the collapse of socialism or communism. You know in in Russia during the Cold War. Now, they think socialism is cool. Well, it it, you know, I want her personally to go to Venezuela and witness what socialism actually does not only to an economy, but to the human spirit. Well, listen, I thank you. Thank you for bringing your passion. The Venezuelan people are passionate people, and you certainly fit that stereotype if I may say, Debbie desouza, and it's great to talk to you. And we'll have you back as these events developed. This might be a very dicey weekend for the people of Venezuela. Yes. Thank you so much for for having me and give our best to Mr. Sousa. We're befriends it.

"So you did mention that in. Why did I did? And in fact, I saw video the video was misleading though because Trump's point guy on climate change as if there was one was there, and he was speaking. But he said something I don't know something that had nothing to do with anything and the people in the audience started laughing at him, and whatever I think it was on CNN, and the the the anchor said they were laughing at the idea that you know, Trump is promoting fossil fuels. Not what he just said. But but it was all right. You know, it was it was theater and the way they laughed at him was really funny. Oh, I didn't get to see it. I didn't see any video or audio here in the audience makes sense though, because he didn't say anything that merited that kind of response. But it was just the clip they showed off laughed at a lot. Yeah. That's that's what I got out of it maharaja. Again, he said hatchet, you talked about this to hatch just misses allegations of Trump crimes over hush money Orrin Hatch asked if. Yeah, asked if he had any concerns hatch said the Democrats will do anything to hurt this president. It's Democrats hold on. When I first heard that pissed me off because it's not the Democrats doing anything to embarrass him. He does. Of course. Absolutely. This is typical Republican response is it's the Democrats Obama's fall, right? Told it was alleged by D N Y hatch told me, okay. But I don't care what you played yet. All I can say is if he's doing a good job is that he's doing a good job as president hatch added this when he asked if he was concerned about allegations quote. No because I don't think he was involved in crimes, but even then you know, you can make anything a crime under the current laws. If you want to you could blow it way out of proportion. You can do a lot of things so basically. Yeah, we're just making it up and we want to get him. And he's not breaking any laws the laws that you know, people are enforcing like in his own DOJ. So how is crazy and I hate him. Okay. Chris guide. Her added next up Orrin Hatch to visit federal prisons open the doors and Crisci near also said man who makes laws says laws he makes are ridiculous. And so therefore don't matter. And my final one, oh the day is eager bobick from huffpost. And he said Trump recently awarded hatch the presidential medal of freedom. Remember that? I didn't watch it because the whole thing sickened me. So because. Yeah. Because one of the people he awarded the presidential medal of freedom to was the wife of Sheldon Adelson, but he she gets the presidential medal of freedom because they donate a lot of money to Trump's campaign. I know right. I didn't either for for those very reasons. I couldn't watch either of them. But yes, I do remember seeing a picture of him putting the medal around his neck or something. And I thought really I mean, they can really. Yeah. You have any tweaks do I have any twelve? Let's see deny save any. I I don't know today was one of those very weird days. Ally lake says congrats to Representative Cohen for the best troll at the Google hearing. Today, he complained that when he Google himself, the top results from daily caller and Breitbart, and yet he appeared a bunch on MSNBC. This weekend is Google biased in favor of conservatives. He asked. Okay. Because the whole thing was. They were saying Google was biased against conservatives. Right. So Steve Cohen of Tennessee said because of this I- biased in favor of conservatives. Yeah. Get it got it. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, we're not reading it. It's always hard. Like, I'm listening. Right. Yeah. I got it by the way from a news alert at least one person is dead and ten others injured after the gunshots in the Christmas market in Strasbourg. Well, yeah, that's gone up. It was six when I mentioned to you. Now, it's ten are injured. God gun, right? Yeah. Guns. And it's just a matter of time before. They somebody get shot here again. And with that joyous note. We're gonna laugh find around the Twitter's and it a bye bye..

"Like you're gone in for year two half at this point and also like this is bad but it's not like he had some agreement where recognize prime for us government is recognizing russia like now owned crimea which is the part of the ukrainian next like that's not i'm so so it's just like it's a really bad signal is what the very well happen is that russia i don't i'm not pretty teacher but my concern what i've heard from analysts like intel people is that russia's starts war in august and then we have to ask did did trump in vertically in some ways give putin the idea that he could do that so that's what i'm super worried about on a but in terms of our own domestic politics at this point is you gotta wait until the mid term to see what republicans are going to end up doing and whether or not and there's a very good chance that democrats will take in troll of the house and at that point they can impeach it's the senate that would have to convict be impeached and then not be convicted much like clinton in like ninety eight the other day also they were saying that kim john woon he backed out of what he said all this where we at with north korea since the meeting because after the meeting with kim john trump it all looked like hunky dory and trump was the hero and it seems like there was something some sort of distance that i'm aware of where we at today since that meeting there's a lot of guys stuck in terms of defining exactly what you mean by denuclearization and as you know one hundred percent against it because i don't think we should confer any recognition and all to kim jong we've talked about that but intil he starts testing this holes or testing or do a nuclear explosions or something like that then you know sort of the north korea's kind of left of crisis that makes sense so he's keeping in but i still think we pay too high a price but you know that'll keep its wheels spinning for their for while they'll be a lot of negotiations and talks if you had to bet your house bet your savings based on everything you know and that you study and that you work upon it you do this shit like ally lake does this ship for new listeners the poor stereo pockets this is in like my cousin this isn't like mike to talk politics down at the basketball court this is what you do you don't know everything and you obviously have opinions summer some people can agree with them some people can't agree with them the whole mueller the investigation based on everything you know how do you think that will play out in broad terms i mean last indictment from you're and then the one that came out today is getting closer to implicating american citizens who who worked or collaborated with russians now what we don't know is whether they knowingly did anything and so far we have to find out whether this includes people who were in close trump but it seems like we're going in that direction and if that happens then as i said a lot it's going to depend on the election in november if the democrats control the house being position if they want you to impeach it's not that's not an unpopular view i think even though what we're hearing now from nancy pelosi chuck schumer and democratic leaders that it would be a disaster try to impeach trump and they may decide it would be a very bad precedent do so and weakened him to the point where they'll be able to win in twenty twenty but i do think that muller seems to be going there what i don't think is that.

"My sense is that that they're trump has a very real problem which is that he hired criminals to work on his campaign and excising those people is gonna take a political cost whether that political cost is going to be paid by the president in the form of having to testify under oath is an open question personally where i his adviser i would not recommend that he do it although in reading his past deposition testimony he is more constrained in states more within the the boundaries when he's under oath and he does in his sort of more shall we say improvisational rhetorical style win speaking publicly but yeah i think the the fact of the matter is you have two people at least who are staring at some pretty serious criminal charges in the form of manafort and probably unrelated lee cohen and both of them probably believe that their prosecutors are looking to go after the president and may themselves prevaricate or commit perjury at the president's expense to try to get themselves off the hook and frankly if you have the president united states testifying under oath no that's not the case that's pretty compelling counterweight if there's not an evidentiary balance one way or the other so if i'm trump no i don't testify under oath but i don't necessarily view these questions as you know a sort of shot across the bow in many ways it's a way to cabin isolate and hopefully cauterize the kind of lingering corruption effects of what was a pretty shambolic campaign run by some deeply compromise people every time a metaphor thing comes up allied lake of bloomberg re ups thing he wrote in the summer of twenty sixteen donald trump has just bought a major scandal by hiring paul manafort which obviously turned out to be present although not not entirely unpredictable so charlie what if you were on trump's legal team and who knows you may end up on trump's legal team.

"Jaber tweeted the division between defense secretary mattis and john bolton and donald trump on what to do or strike in syria is really showing i totally agree with trump on this assad needs to go or get hurt really bad for the sake of trump's credibility it's really impossible to back down now jaber i'm glad you brought up john bolton because that's what i wanted us to discuss next it's been a busy first week as he began his new job as the white house's national security adviser on monday he succeeds general hr mcmaster who president trump fired last month ally lake i wondering if we've seen any signs of john bolton's influence already he's new to this job to to this job for the trump administration but he's an established hardline hawk for national security whereas he exerting his influence or is it still kinda early going i would cripple slightly with the idea of hardline hawk on national security only in the following sense john bolton does not believe that america should be restrained by international institutions and most international law though he does take treat very seriously he is not a humanitarian interventionist so he does not believe that the united states should use military force to stop genocides to for the purpose of nation building for transitions from dictatorships to democracies which is a traditional view associated with neo conservatives in that respect that's why john bolton was opposed to intervention in rwanda he was opposed to intervention in the balkans and while he supported the iraq war on sort of hard american power grounds he did not believe that it was important for iraq to then be transitioned to a constitutional democracy which george w bush administration spent a lot of time in so far what we know about john bolton is that he is getting rid of a number of the lieutenants of hr mcmaster starting with michael anton the longtime spokesman for hr mcmaster when he was there and ricky adele his deputy and i think you're beginning to see built and bringing in some of his own people but i don't necessarily think that john.

"Thing and i would just point out to the earlier caller that yes i agree i you know i cover this the middle eastern wars now for almost twenty years and it is very frustrating and the us isn't by no means perfect and has made many grave errors at times but the alternative is what we've seen unfolding in syria and that is just a ghastly humanitarian of crisis that is not gonna stop without at least some kind of intervention hopefully something of the international more international variety but it really is a call to all civilized nations now josh i want to let you have the last word here i'd love it to be about refugees because you know as i was just talking about what we could do from a humanitarian perspective within syria but there are millions of people displaced what can we do to help them well the united states spent about thirty billion dollars on syria according to some estimates and it has only by funding the opposition and building up militias and trying to take on the the the government we have drawn out this war efforts have led to greater refugee flows and more destruction in syria in the same way they have any rock and to think that somehow by spending more money and coming up the new militia in northern syria we are going to create peace in syria i think is is we're deluding ourselves josh i'm going to have to cut you off because we're coming to the end here i'm sorry i wanna thank ally lake i unless dick josh landis thank you so much for all of you being here on this this is on point.
