"Administration says it's reducing the number of U. S troops in Iraq less than two months away from the 2020 election. Fox's Jennifer Griffin with more It's the first time US forces have been withdrawn from Iraq since 2016 in Baghdad, the top U. S commander in the Middle East General Frank McKenzie, made it official quote. This reduced footprint allows us to continue advising and assisting our Iraqi partners in rooting out the final remnants of Isis in Iraq and ensuring its enduring defeat. In recent months, U. S forces have left a number of Iraqi bases where they have been increasingly under attack by Iranian backed proxy forces. The uptick comes in the wake of President Trump ordering the assassination of the powerful Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in Baghdad. Iran responded by launching ballistic missiles against U. S troops in Iraq days. Later. What else? Press Secretary Kaylie mechanisms says the number of troops is being cut from 5200 to 3000.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is self-explanatory
"Suicide Squad kill the justice. League is about the suicide squad trying to kill the Justice League. The other big video game news from D., C. Fan Dome was learning a lot more about suicide squad kill the Justice League from rock steady games the developer of Arkham asylum city night. Suicide Squad kill the Justice League is officially its title and game is about the suicide squad trying to kill the Justice League the trailer for the game opened up on a decimated metropolis. There was a weird glowing giant purple skull ship in the distance and it cuts to Harley Quinn on a rooftop goofing off and making jokes in response to just the General Radio Chatter. Then the rest of the suicide squad was revealed along with Harley Quinn. This game will also feature Captain Boomerang with a pretty intense Australian. Dead Shot and King Shark they had some comedic banter making fun of dead shot for claiming he never misses well King Shark absent mindedly popped green lantern and Batman balloons, which is interesting to me because there have been side quests about popping balloons in the past arkham games. And then Amanda Waller came on the line telling them they had to get to work or she would blow them up. Was All pre rendered but the next part of the trailer gave a pretty good idea of what to expect in terms of Gameplay Harley Quinn zipped around using some kind of Hook Shot zip-line thing and used her bat mainly to attack these weird purple enemies. King Shark looked slow but carried a big machine gun dead shot had a jet pack did a lot of shooting and Captain Boomerang had some kind of quick teleporting ability while he was also throwing boomerangs and other weapons. And all of this happened while outkast's B O b bombs over Baghdad played on top of it. After finishing off the group, they quipped that what they did probably will knock a few years off the sentence and then Harley remembered that there was an Alpha target they needed to pursue. And that's when Superman showed up with his classic Yellow Belt and red. Underwear look. At first, it seemed like he saved a helicopter pilot from a crash, but then his eyes start glowing purple and he killed the pilot prompting these suicide squad to realize they are meant to kill the Justice League, the trailer ended with. Superman. Not really reacting to getting hit in the head with some kind of pipe that guess King Shark through and it revealed a twenty twenty to release window for playstation five. Series. Exit PC. After that trailer host will Arnett revealed a few more details about the game with the voice cast from suicide squad who were in character Harley. Quinn specifically referenced getting excited about killing Batman and Captain Boomerang mentioned the flash. After that game director Sefton Hill showed up. There was this whole silly conceit that will Arnett was being transported around to his hosting duties and Hill had joked that they had just shipped him a green screen which was pretty good joke but he answered a few more questions. The game does play S- in the chronology. So it is technically a sequel to Batman Arkham night it's going to be a lot different, but narrative is moving the plot forward. They decided to do a suicide squad game because they consider their games character-driven and the suicide squad highlights. One of the things DC has always been particularly good at villains they appreciated how flawed they were. It also gave them the opportunity to create an interesting impossible scenario, which is, of course, hunting down the Justice League. The gameplay will be a hybrid of hero empowerment action and Gunplay, which is definitely a unique for rock steady Batman does not use guns. The game will offer up to four player Co op, but will totally be playable single player. If you're playing alone, the AI will handle your other members and you will apparently be able to swap between them seamlessly. You can also go back and forth between single and multiplayer over the course of game it is also an open world. That world being metropolis. The twenty twenty to release window really surprised me. Batman Arkham night released in two thousand fifteen they lent it a lot of support post release but I think it's pretty safe to assume they have been working on it at some capacity since that game released since arkham night released. A suicide squad game was also teased as early as two thousand thirteen where there was something at the end of Batman Arkham origins. So to learn it is nearly two years away. Surprised me. I'm not really disappointed. Honestly, I'm happy to wait just surprised I would have assumed it would be

One that the Iraqis were looking for political cover and believed that judge. Urbina. Decision would inevitably harm. US Iraqi relations. But as we learned, it was a lot more complicated than needing to look tough against the American occupiers for your constituents. Gina. During our research, I read a fascinating book by Emma skied. She's a WHO, loudly protested the war. She was right there marching up in front and London. But she eventually went on to play a key role in the American war effort. She served as a key advisor to general break, Odierno, and the Coalition Provisional Authority. Skyros of the relationship between the two countries was about to come undone any way, and for reasons that had nothing to do with Raven to three. Here's the guy giving a lecture at Yale University in two, thousand and fifteen. In during the surge, the level of violence Iraq decreased dramatically.

On the results were very, very close, very, very close contested results. Unfortunately the US didn't. The rights of the winning block to have I, go trying to form the government as instead the government insists instead the US government insisted on keeping the incumbent Noel Malachy in power, and why did they do that? Do you think? I think because it had paid the easiest. Obama had campaigned to end the Iraq war. Seemed easier to keep the incumbent, rather than trying to help a new government be formed with a new leader unfortunately malachy then went on to follow very sectarian policies. Alienated the Sunni population, there were widespread protests and the Islamic state loosed power. Keep in mind Emma Sky saying here. It's outrageous. The US government suppressed the will of the Iraqi people. To keep. Malecki. In power two, thousand ten. Just because it was the easiest option to keep our troops and security contractors from getting kicked out of Iraq. We did a deal with the devil. Granted. It was the devil that we knew, but the price was the lives and freedom of for American veterans. So. Who was Malecki and why one American Selena Iraq. So badly if we were supporting his regime. And why are we bending over backwards? To satisfy him. Let's take that first question. President George W, Bush had to overlook quite a track record of anti-americanism when he chose Nouri Al Malecki to lead post occupation Iraq, Malecki, had spent the previous three decades in exile in Iran and Syria Malecki lead the Islamic Dowa parties, covert operations mainly against Saddam?

He was He didn't know he was going to be a prime minister. They call them at night and he called him. Come in. And they're not stable. They told him you making the prime. minister. He's Sporting.

Because Obama, he does that they and would be difficult for the public. Because he was done you. American diplomatic and military advisers warned Biden not toback Malecki because of his close ties with Iran. But he ignored them. In fact, he boasted to die his deep understanding of the Iraqi people in the centuries of conflict in the middle. East. Needless to say Skye was a bit underwhelmed and unimpressed. With Joe. Biden, she saw his view rather simplistic. But the question remains. Why Would Malik run our troops and contractors out of Iraq? If we were protecting his regime, the best answer and the one we found most often. was articulated by Ali Canary who advised five US ambassador's was the longest serving American in Iraq.

I got to Baghdad was told. You've got twenty four hours to come up with a phase four plan. On the night of April eight Colonel John Sterling Chief of staff of three ID came to me, and said I just got off the phone with the court chief of staff, and I asked him for the reconstruction plan, and he said there isn't one so you've got twenty four hours to come up with one.

This is still reading from the thirty report. That our national goal was regime change yet. There was no timely plan prepared for the obvious consequences of regime change. As a matter of law and fact, the United States is an occupying power in Iraq even if we characterize ourselves as liberators.

Kevin Rudd on anarchy in the post COVID-19 world order, and could stable democracy be a reality in Iraq?
"Former Prime Minister Kevin right on the geopolitical consequences of the pandemic. He predicts the coming post covered. Anneke plus Iraq believe it or not. It's future looks brought today than it has an any point in the past Dick. I'd stay with us for my chat with Linda Robinson from the Rand Corporation. She'll tell us while we should not give up on Baghdad's fragile. Democracy Corona virus continues to take a toll on the health of nations around the world. One thing has become clear the winners and losers not who we might have expected a year ago. The virus is taking an uneven and unpredictable. Course through the world defying. I usual assumptions about power and resilience. Some small poor countries being left relatively unscathed all powerful prosperous nations. I've been ravaged. So what does this mean for global order and for the strategic robbery between China and the United States? Will everything change or is the virus? Mealy accelerating trends that were already in place. Former prime minister of Australia. Kevin Rudd is the President of the Society Policy Institute in New York. He's written an essay in the most recent issue of Foreign Affairs magazine in New York. It's called the coming postcode Enki and he joins me now. From Queensland's Sunshine Coast Kevin Rudd. Welcome back to between the lawns. Good to be with you on between the lines. Now you'll recent essays titled The coming Postcode Anneke Y Anneke. You're good real turns color of international relations you would know that realists assume that. Anneke is in fact the natural state All the International Society of states rent was Headley Bull who wrote about this crowd along time ago and Australian realist and Australian realist. Ten within the real documents that order actually represents the exception rather than the rule So why do I argue this I argue it because the current order as we've done since forty five is underpinned by and large by US geopolitical pound Gio economic power secondly That's become challenge at least by China Thirdly the Cova crisis has turbo charge The hit on American real and perceived power. But there's a full factor as well. Which is the impact which the Cova crisis has on China's Powell not least the damage to its economy the flow through effect to its ability to spend on the amounts of money on its military and on the belt and road initiative example but more importantly international perceptions of China in the developed in the developing world. So where do we end up? We end up not with The same old order as in the past but a slow and steady drift towards more anoc order. We're both China and the US damaged and the institutions of global governance with the UN. The will bank the National Monetary Fund the G. Twenty etc become increasingly the terrain for geopolitical battle. Between these two wounded POWs a K. Sunday the country's the victory he but some analysts say that China's heavy handed approach eccentric lockdowns violence. That's been a political win for Xi Jinping in Matt strengthened the Central Authority of the communist regime. How would you respond to them? Well let's look at That argument within China itself. There's been a huge hit on the accompany And as a result of that China will have its worst gross numbers twenty twenty the Ted in over half a century since the end of the Cultural Revolution almost That is huge. It undermines She Jinping's China Drain which was One pillar of which was for China to quadruple. Its G. D. DP by twenty twenty measured against two thousand levels this single year of itself. Economic non-performance blows a hole amidships in that and then secondly on top of that. Tom You've got the problem which arises in terms of internal political debates within China so and I think some growing levels of resistance to Xi Jinping's on leadership and finally as I mentioned before The blowback around the world in terms of the economic damage To economize both developed and developing causing a big question mark to a rise in terms whether China has in fact being the risk to the world's best friend because of the outbreak of this virus. So these factors I think. Qualify the overall argument you hear from some the China's authoritarian model in managing the crisis domestically translates into a geopolitical win the China internationally. I don't think that necessarily holes walk conversations. Do you think heaven. I going on right now in Beijing over China's place in the world I mean is the division division over this so-called Wolf Warrior this is the and diplomacy we often hear about a division between that Wolf Warrior. Diplomacy versus say China's desire to promote soft power. Chinese politics in some respects is not dissimilar to elements of politics. We and other countries. That is you find nationalist. Ten internationalists you find a local ists globalists' you find audio logs versus as it were reformers and pregnant at this and so the as political system while it's Control by Xi Jinping's leadership still has all these tensions and personalities within it so the debates now I think are of a twofold. How do we allow this to happen? In the first place what failed in terms of the processes insistence China put in place after the Saas Crisis of two thousand and three to prevent a pandemic or epidemic as it was then from happening again. The second debate is how the Hillary you get the economy back together again given the China a economy with forty percent of Gdp comes from the traded six or the economy and International. Trade is being blend. Bits by this crosses and the other debate again between nationalists internationalised is the one. You've just touched on the Tom. Which is China's wolf worried diplomats out there launching attacks against any critique of China's performance On the one hand defend the party's legitimacy and on the other hand older more seasoned diplomat saying this isn't actually contributing much to the improvement of China's global image those discussions and debates underway. At the moment we're talking about this wolf warrior diplomacy. What do you make of China's recent boycotts threats of boycotts of Australian Exports Bali? Beef what what's going on well as I've said in other recent interviews since those public statements by the China's ambassador Australia it's unacceptable in my view for any ambassador accredited to any country to receive public threats against the host country In City five years of more dealing with the Australian China relationship I don't recall previous Chinese ambassadors of having done that not by any Australian diplomat ever having done that irrespective of the crisis of the day with was ten on all the things that I went through when I was in office etc so I think as a matter of shall we say diplomatic practice. What occurred then was regrettable as as being some of the hotline commentary. Which emanated from the Chinese nationalist media? the bottom line is however the Chinese nationalists have seen The effectiveness All the some of these sorts of measures when applaud various countries in the past sorts of economic leverage which China replied to no way out to no way through the Nobel Prize Committee Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to a famous Chinese dissident And I've also seen how those Economic Leverage points of work with various of the Europeans. So this is not alien to the Chinese playbook my argument about China's Australia's management of The relationship in prison is that if the Australian government's of the view and a view I in general support that there needs to be an independent international inquiry as to the origins the virus transmission of the virus notifications to the WHO and threw them to the world community etc. Then again to put that Ford isn't as trade in government and then do some work on it. I get a few other governments to come along with you an advance that through the multilateral machinery which rather than just blow it out as a thought bubble That's the way which you do. Real things in the international community rather than I. Fear sometimes pitching a diplomatic initiative primarily for domestic political leverage into straighter. What complicates matters? Further is president trump's theory that the virus was leaked from a lab in Wuhan and raises the question. Why would China agree to enquiry without losing this between the lines on? Abc Radio National. The familiar voice. You're hearing is former prominence to Kevin. Rudd is now president of the Asia Society Policy Institute in New York. We've been talking about his article in the current issue of Foreign Affairs magazine. Kevin we'll talking about China and how it's paid a price as a result of this current ivars. Let's turn to the United States. How badly damaged is the use in your judgement? I mean we'll recover reasonably quickly With a change of administration in November or does the damage go deep. Perhaps too deep for recovery has been deep damage politically. The the. The House is a divided house within the United States. Those of us who have followed. Us politics of the many years have rarely seen it This divisive and that actually is a real factor in terms of constructing a post presidential election national consensus on how America engages the World. And the future. American politics has become so binary including on America's own future will view on the economic damage. It's huge. This is the biggest hit on newest economy at least since nineteen forty-six and the recovery from the war and probably since the depression the end of the depression and thirty three So this takes a while to recover But the American economy know a history of resilience. Look what happened after the global financial crisis? But well I was going to make the point to is enormous capacity for change and renewal. I mean you think about its recovery from the civil war that oppression in Vietnam. You being a bit too pessimistic. Kevin. Well I live in the United States and I actually listened to the debate on back in Australia now and when my American interlocutors Republican and Democrat Friends of mine over twenty years who A positive let's call it. The Foreign Policy National Security Policy Machinery signed that it's become increasingly hard to forge consensus these days across the aisle on America's behavior in the world That is a real issue. Then it's not just my external analysis it's part of the internal analysis within the US itself. Do I think the United States can come through the domestic political Malays and the Economic Destruction? Which has occurred? Yes I do. Because it's remarkably resilient country But I think a precondition is that We see a Democrat. Win this November it's not that. I am a A cheerleader for Joe Biden. Personally I barely know the man Bought he's lucky to put together a mainstream Competent Foreign Policy and National Security Policy Tame as opposed to Frankly the chaotic nature of the trump administration on most foreign and national security policy questions. And that I think is necessary for America to rebuild. Its alliances abroad rebuild. Its credibility in the eyes of the risks of the will and to overcome what has been an extraordinary period where America rather than taking the lead in the global recovery From the virus both in public health systems and economic terms as simply being missing in action and in fact the unable to contain it's the damage domestically
Back to the furore: protests set to reignite
"Switch on the news today. And chances are it'll be about one thing. Us Corona virus deaths. Almost these should but six or seven months ago something else was dominating global headlines and this show a wave of protests had erupted the cost the globe not least in the Middle East and Arab world. Not since I suppose the Arab spring of two thousand eleven half one seen so many apparently told NATO simultaneous protests in one place so once green now in Baghdad is carnival as the corona virus has spread many of these protests movements have necessarily and put on hold lately though in Lebanon. Not even a look down has been able to contain the public anger that has swelled. The country's economic crisis has gone from bad to worse. Those who took to the streets last October are protesting against their government once again for more than a month. The lockdown bought the Lebanese government clear. Streets there was a lot of concern here that the virus overwhelm the underfunded healthcare system in Lebanon and so people really did obey the government. Stay at home order for the latter part of March for much of April. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent reporting from Beirut a gun to appoint over the past two weeks where the virus looks contains and where the economic situation has gotten so bad that people have begun to ignore the lockdown orders to go out and protest so particularly in Tripoli Northern Lebanon which is one of the poorest cities in the country. Thousands of people came out to protest some of these protests turned into riots people throwing firebombs into banks. Lebanese army using live ammunition to put down protests in Tripoli killed one protester a young twenty six year old man and wounded a number of others and the protests were seeing now are a continuation of the ones we saw last year they are the protests that started in October. Were really a rejection of the entire political class in Lebanon and the sectarian confessional system. It's been in place. Since the end of the civil war. In nineteen ninety but the trigger for the protests really was an economic crisis the banking sector looks illiquid if not entirely insolvent the currency is collapsing. People are seeing their life savings effectively. Cut In half over the past six months and all of this was happening even before the lockdown which is obviously dealt another severe blow to the economy so this situation now where food prices have gone up by an estimated forty percent since September. The government thinks inflation. This year will run about fifty percents. You hear reports from business federations that maybe a third of registered companies in Lebanon have gone under over the past six so the economic situation really has gotten very bleak and it's back into the streets and what is it that put Lebanon in this crisis in the first place. Lebanon has never had a very productive economy. It's been based on finance real estate tourism. Very large Service sector so. It's not a very wealthy country doesn't have very many well paying jobs but it's been able to keep the economy humming with this big influx of foreign capital much of which comes from the Lebanese diaspora. Which of course is larger than the Lebanese population inside of Lebanon? And what's happened over? The past few years is all of this. Stop working at once the real estate sector. There's a bubble that looks overbuilt and overpriced. The financial sector is slowing down deposits. After a year of steady growth deposits banks have begun to decline the central banks of resorted to running a pyramid scheme to defend the currency where it was borrowing dollars from commercial banks at very above market interest rates and no longer has enough dollars to do that and so all of a sudden everything has collapsed. Lebanese pound which has been pegged to the dollar at fifteen hundred since the nineteen nineties now trading at about four thousand on the dollar on the black market the government in March defaulted on its debts. Lebanese public debt is more than one hundred fifty percent of GDP and it's simply become unsustainable and the pandemic and the reaction to the pandemic has only exacerbated all of that it has and we don't know quite how bad the economic situation is yet because of course everything has been closed but a you hear sort of anecdotal stories of businesses. That are not going to reopen once. The lockdown lifted particularly things like restaurants bars cafes which are a big source of jobs in this country but between the lockdown off their business and the collapsing currency. They no longer have a sustainable business. There are stories of hardship that circulate on social media. Every day there was a video of a pregnant woman assume was her husband's Eating out of a dumpster the story of migrant workers who have really been hit hard by this crisis because they haven't been paid in months and some cases trying to cross the border into Israel. Which of course is closed and military is so it's become a very difficult situation. Lebanon has gone to the mouth to ask for a bailout. Of course it will be many other countries asking the IMF for help right now but securing one is going to require a very serious effort at which is something that successive Lebanese governments for decades have not want to do but late last year. We weren't just talking about protests in Lebanon there were demonstrations breaking out over the world particularly in the Middle East and the Arab world. Do you think it's the same story as in Lebanon? This kind of unrest will return to other countries in the region just as soon as the worst of the pandemic has passed. I think it is Lebanon is perhaps going I because the economic situation has gotten so bad here but you go back six months and Iraqis were in the streets protesting against the corrupt and ineffective government. Algerians were protesting all year in two thousand and nine thousand nine. I to overthrow their longtime dictator then to protest against the army-backed government. That succeeded him. All of that of course was suspended because of the lockdowns. Everyone has been at home but The grievances that drove them into the streets in the first place which again are largely economic. Those grievances remain there Iraq on Jerry or both should be quite wealthy countries. They have large oil and gas resources and yet that money has been squandered and stolen over the decades and that is what is driving people into the streets in protest and again in both of those countries situation looks to be getting worse because oil prices are as low as they. Are you look at Iraq? And there are estimates that the government will have a forty billion dollar shortfall this year from what it budgeted versus where oil prices are now. It's not at all clear who's going to step in to lend that kind of money to Iraq and so there to the economy is going to get worse and I think give it a few weeks or a couple of months and likely that people be back out on the streets there as well break. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you

"So is there from the streets of Baghdad what's particularly interesting is the perspective of the country's young generation generations at those born in the late nineties and early two thousands who make up a fair chunk of the crowd out on the streets typically there a group that has experienced a huge amount of upheaval during their upbringing the two thousand and three Iraq war and often office meant that they have lived through multiple phases of violence high youth unemployment and widespread corruption what I do know a former BBC Baghdad correspondent is someone familiar with young Iraqis grievances he's been covering the protests in Baghdad and speaking of young people that to try and build a clear picture and joins me now I'm aware that about some of these young people entering the kinds of things they've been saying to you I think the key thing to remember about this generation of people who are out on the streets protesting is that they're not tied down by the divisions and grievances of the pasta made most of those around on the streets and that tens of thousands of at the peak of these protests I mean not just Baghdad but many of the cities around the country take in the south and they they were either not born at the time of the US invasion all they were just toddlers and so all of the kind of the the the the the the the fighting the battles that have gone on since their two thousand three invasion don't mean anything to them and people I was talking to a sable they've lost about Saddam Hussein I don't care about Saddam Hussein I don't care what my parents told about Saddam Hussein because he's no longer relevant and and they they have simply had enough with the the the the new order that is taken to this taken hold but is in power as a result of the US invasion of bots having said that just like many other parts of the world to corona viruses now having its effect that and I think increasingly it's looking like these protests are going to subside because of the threat of the virus which is the rising cases in Iraq in the short term one imagines that will be the case but in the longer term I mean some of the the issues that they also exercised about I'm not gonna go away I'm certainly not in the trunks are very possibly they can get worse because the the the rocky government relies overwhelmingly on oil for its for its revenues and of course if one knows the fuel prices plummeted dramatically in the last week or so they said that he's going to be have a knock on effect in terms of making all these problems worse unemployment it'll also probably make the government's that that the protest is a trying to replace its going to make them actually to get even more and so I mean this has been an astonishingly violent protests I mean that's the thing that's it that's it they've been going since October now Mr around six hundred people have been killed instilled expects stuck it out because that because the government has been so determined not to not to get in but you know now the stakes are even higher and you could see even more violence and even more deterioration in Iraq and what about Sunni versus Shia the country's often seen within those parameters perhaps more by people outside than inside what are these young people say on that subject we see that that that's another sign that you've got this sort of the the contrast between the generations because when I was that recently talking to protesters are they on this is a cross sectarian protester hello adult of the time because the people who were there not worrying about whether you will see whether the people around them a Sunni or Shia that is that parents that their parents divisions that's the way they see it bots of course it is still the sheer leads governments in in Baghdad that is in controlling the scene seeing things to some extent through that person because the sheer with a major I feel we have lost Andrew at that point but I think you've had a affair flavor from him of those protests in Baghdad and the views of the young people that he's been speaking to in Iraq in the last few months nearly twenty four minutes past the hour

US Embassy was fast-moving required some quick decisions from the Pentagon and from President Trump. But that was not the only headline commanding the president's residents attention over the New Year's holiday. ABC's Cure Phillips was there with the president as he marked the New Year with guests at his mar-a-lago resort actually had kind of red carpet setup. Kiro was right there and Kira. He's also hearing new threats from North Korea right so all of a sudden things on his plate. How is he responding? Well exactly I mean here. He was celebrating grading his big New Year's Eve party right this flashy soiree and mar-a-lago and then he wakes up to a new year an election year with foreign policy issues. It's sort sort of like. Okay here's my New Year. WAKEUP call you mentioned Iran and what happened there in Iraq With the American Embassy will now Kim Jong Hoon is is warning that North Korea could reveal a new strategic weapon. Kim Jong Hoon promising a new strategic weapon threatening shocking action saying his country could end the moratorium on missile and nuclear weapons testing that is basically code for. Hey I'm testing an intercontinental missile. That could theoretically they deliver a nuclear warhead to the US. I have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un. I know he's sending out certain messages about Christmas presents and I hope this Christmas present is a beautiful vase. That's what I'd Light Cabanas. As opposed to something else now look we have been covering the story of North Korea for a really long time and every year There is usually a threat like this that comes to North Korea. But as we hear this Sir I mean we have watched the sort of diplomatic love affair between the President and Kim Jong UN number one sentence denuclearization that was done in Singapore Singapore. And I think he's a man of his word so we're GONNA find out but I think he's a man of his word and obviously with this new threat in the New Year That could impact that relationship Brad. Well obviously you know the president's got those foreign issues he's also got domestic things on his table including you gotta think impeachment and the impeachment trial coming up and I feel like for the last. Few Months Rudy. Giuliani was kind of he who should not be named by the White House since he started so much of this and and yet they're he was right in front of you at the president's winter residence. act to tell you something there. You never know what you're going to get from from Rudy. Giuliani and I will tell you when he does decide to talk to you. It is always extremely colorful so there he was coming into the red carpet. I called him over and I asked him. Hey what do you think about this impeachment trials. The president wants you to testify in the trial. Would you testify in the trial. I would testify. I would Due demonstrations I'd give lectures that. Give some Asians or I do what I do best. I tried the case and then he walks off it really care. It doesn't matter as far as I'm concerned I'd be very happy with the trial because we did nothing wrong and I tried to ask the president about that when he came onto the red carpet but he would only take a few questions. He did talk about Iran. He did talk about impeachment But didn't have a comment about rudy. Giuliani saying hey. He'd love to testify. I can't really imagine Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell actually wanting Giuliani within a fifty mile radius of the Capitol as goes down but there are still questions about whether there will will be witnesses at all. Republican Senators Susan Collins from Maine said they would like witnesses. They've criticized McConnell for coordinating with the White House as they plan all this cure Phillips Silken of the Florida Sunshine see what clouds around the corner. Thanks so much you got it. mm-hmm a lot of new rules went into effect on January first because they were scheduled that way for a long time. Well this past New Year's Eve we learned a new national policy on vaping is set to take effect early in the New Year and this was not part of some longstanding plan. This new enforcement action from the Food and Drug Administration will suddenly ban pretty much every flavored. VAPE POD on the market setting off yet another scramble for this industry to start twenty twenty. ABC Stephanie Ebbs Covers Federal Agencies. She's been on the vaping vaping beat for months now and some Stephanie. These changes were first reported by the Wall Street Journal. How're the expected to work? Well by the president confirmed on New Year's Eve that the administration situation plans to roll out this new policy. It's very different looking than what they originally started talking about. In September when the president and the Secretary of Health and Human Services wanted this strong ban to stop kids from accessing these these vaping in nicotine products. We'll take take it off the flavors for time certain certain flavors We're GONNA protect our families. We're GONNA protect our children and we're going to protect the industry know what they're talking about now can split hairs a little. They're talking about banning flavored vape pods for those jewel like devices that look like a USB but not e liquids that are seen as is more popular among adults in Houston those older vaping devices. There's little canisters with like the jail that you can get into swapping out. Yeah exactly if you've ever seen a vape show show or adults with the kind of more bulky square looking devices that's an e liquid. They're sold in adult only shop so by the administration will likely argue especially with the tobacco age going up later this year. It's not as important to focus on those as those one time use pods that are really popular among teens but essentially every flavor that goes out the door certain ones that stay. It's pretty much every flavor with a big caveat that they are allowing menthol and tobacco oh flavored pods to stay on the market. We want the tobacco flavored. E cigarettes to remain available for adults who may be using e cigarettes to be off of combustible tobacco Baco they would be banning mint which is one of the most popular flavors of course mint and Menthol are very similar. So there's some concern that the most products could be basically basically relabeled and sold as Menthol and it's important to note that the most popular company with the largest market share jewel has already pulled a lot of their sweet flavors members from the market. So it is a big impact of pulling these these flavored products like fruits mango pineapple. But it's kind of unclear how. How big of an impact or how lasting everything safe? They're going to be going very quickly back onto the market so the flavors will come off. They're going to be checked. The president has said had that this will just be temporary as the FDA reviews applications to allow them to be sold again. And so the last time you and I talked about this Stephanie. Speaking of the president he kind of backed off of of a very similar proposal or wider-ranging proposal. I suppose I presume you kind of have to sign off on this his administration. What changed his mind? Oh absolutely so. When they first announced a full ban of every flavored vaping product there was immediate reaction from the pro vaping community? It is are largely adults that acknowledged that nicotine is a big problem but they also say that fourteen year had it using flavor paddock's you know having this as an alternative to traditional cigarettes is better for adults. FDA hasn't definitively ruled on the health impacts yet because these products haven't been around as long as combustible testable cigarettes and one other thing that Brad is at the president reference. A lot of people dying from vaping people have died from this. They died from vaping. We think we understand. Why more than two thousand four hundred people have been hospitalized with vaping related lung injuries according to the CDC today that's presumably a reference to the vaping related illnesses and lung injuries that the Center for Disease Control has been tracking now? US Health officials are describing their latest findings as a breakthrough suggesting vitamin E acetate may be the culprit the CDC says that those injuries and illnesses are primarily attributed to illicit or illegal thc containing they products not nicotine and tobacco. There is an adultery substance in there. That's very hazardous for the lungs. So the change we're talking about. Today is more about addiction and keeping teens off tobacco than reducing the rest of those injuries from illicit products and in fact outside of mar-a-lago yesterday you had signs reading strawberry. Kiwi saved my life and no government. You can't hit hit my jewel though the president's apparent sympathy for the industry that you heard there it's also angered a lot of health groups across the country. Stephanie APPs thank you thanks bad happened here last thing. We talked about some of the strange rules of international diplomacy earlier. Will they do not they get the cover escape story.

"Good evening the. US Embassy in Tehran invaded and occupied Iranian students. Americans inside have been taken prisoner. His new and according to a student spokesman will be held as hostages. You might remember the Iranian Revolution back in the day when protesters stormed our embassy in Tehran. Are People were. We're trying to burn documents if they could escape eventually. Iranians got in and took American hostages but over the last forty eight hours. Another crowd gathered around the. US Embassy. See Things got scary a lot of these crowds. They started protesting outside the embassy and managed to get right up close to the building surrounding owning it. This time it back they heard shouting down down. USA just outside the embassy got so serious that president trump authorized the deployment of nearly a thousand troops to defend the place and while Baghdad is the capital of Iraq. This had everything to do with Iran next door. ABC's foreign correspondent. James Longman joins us. Now he spent a Lotta time near that that embassy and so james how to control. Did this get. I mean absolutely extraordinarily out of control. I mean almost unprecedented absolutely amazing that these these protesters were able to get anywhere close to what is supposed to be one of the most secure embassies in the world if not the most secure the days of rage outside this building ties fund fires lit. US troops having to shoot take asked to disperse these protesters. The crowds are able to climb the smash down the reception area in some pictures console at security personnel. Having to hunker down inside pictures absolutely incredible. They go well beyond the stuff that you normally see. If people burning American flags though we've seen not to and president trump pat to send in something like seven hundred fifty soldiers from the eighty second airborne division which is based in Fort Bragg. Now it's on top of more than one hundred marines that when flown in to bolster the marines are already there so this has gotten wildly out of control. We think things die down for the moment but certainly totally unprecedented. And so James you say how did this start. How did this get so big so quick? Yes so on Friday. We gotTA rewind slightly to Friday of last week when in the north of Iraq. About thirty rockets rockets were fired at a base in cook where Americans work and one contractor was killed there. The Americans identified. This group is KC has bullets in Iranian backed lacked militia group working in Iraq. A department defense took offensive actions in defense of our personnel and interests in Iraq. And so as a result over the weekend They the Americans deployed F. Fifteens to hit their basis in both Iraq and in Syria strikes were successful volt. Twenty five of their fighters were killed and many more injured and so that group then held funerals in Baghdad For these fighters autism off to the funerals. They came to the embassy to attack the country. They held responsible for the deaths of of their fighters. So all this kind of happened as a result of that first attack last Friday. I don't think anybody thought it was going to get a serious this. Because what we've seemed to have witnessed witnessed is effectively the tacit approval of the Iraqi authorities allowing this group to get so close and it goes to the heart of the issue so entrenched inched is Iran in Iraq's politics that basically the Iraqi security services two to one side the way I'm confused James because when when I think about Iraq and Iran traditionally those two sides do not get along we were bombing what we thought were Iranian sponsored terror groups why would Iraqis be protesting protesting with Iran against the US in Baghdad. Well you've got to think of it. Less as Iraq versus Iran and more as Sunni versus Shia Shia when Saddam Hussein a Sunni was removed. It basically empowered. The Shia who found allies in the massive shear power is Iran right next door and basically ever the since his removal the Iranians have entrenched themselves in every Paul toll of Iraqi politics. Most of the Iraqi cabinet has has links to Iran the military leadership for months Iran and Israel. They've been fighting something of a shadow war inside Syria but Israel says this is the first time Iran which has sent thousands of troops to Syria to prop up the regime of Bashar. al-Assad has directly attacked across that border. This is a country Iran which works to weaken the the power structures of its neighbors in order to gain power there. It's not just in Iraq. So that is what this is about. And so when you look at the Iran on strength in the Middle East then you've only got to think that hostilities are only going to get worse as this New Year progresses. So what we're supposed to be these targeted tit. For TAT attacks attacks on Iranian sponsored terror groups now becomes a firestorm literal firestorm in the center of Baghdad on American turf. James Longman thank you thanks. James brought up the stakes there. I want to dive deeper into that with Colonel Steven Gerrard formerly of the Marine Corps and of the State Department now he's ABC News contributor attributed and so colonel gathered. I've seen the movie argo. Are we in a place where embassy in Baghdad is now just going to be the site of Iranian based protest test in Iranian beast attacks obviously the. US quickly quickly gets concerned about another Tehran. Or another Benghazi. Good Morning I'm George Stephanopoulos and we were coming on the here because we have just learned that the US ambassador to Libya has been killed. It happened overnight when angry militants stormed the US consulate in Benghazi Libya. They fired shots at the building on fire. But this is quite different. This is in Iraq. Iraq is Is a country that needs the US to be there. does not WANNA have the US lead Does not want to be seen as has being the puppet of Tehran so if they had allowed the Iranian backed protesters into the US embassy. That would have been Even bigger political problem vested political problem. I think it all comes back to the point here. Brad is this is all about domestic Iraqi politics and it really isn't about the US. Iran attempting to deflect all the anger occur within the Iraqi people towards the US and away from Iran security forces. Police and the army have been firing live rounds at protested protesters' as volleys of tegas protests. All around Iraq now and these have not been about the. US has been about the Iraqi government and when people showed up to protest that they shot. Right I mean we've seen hundreds of people now killed. According to reports because these protests we did not see that kind of reaction from the Iraqi police these last few days I mean why why. Why the devil? Yeah it's actually it's actually It's almost humorous if you look at the way that the Iraqi police stepped aside and allowed the Iraqi protesters to come in towards the compound. This was fully coordinated with the government. The government In Iraq had to do something thing to appease their masters in Tehran appease the protesters two peas those on the political side. They need so. This was all quite carefully staged and they gave limits. This is why you didn't you see any of the Iraqis tried to go into the compound itself This this was this was staged as a Hollywood set. And so the idea of letting civilians blow off steam also not getting too entangled with Iran and meanwhile president trump saying. It'd be bad free Ron to mess with us. We'll see what happens next even gang. Your thank you. Thanks.

"Outside of our embassy in Baghdad this is orchestrated by the Iranian regime these are the kinds of tactics that they use forty years ago they stormed our embassy and then here we are forty years later and they're directing these terrorist groups to then attack our embassy so the president took very decisive action and put in place the necessary forced protections and for our people our diplomats and our and our embassy it was the right thing to do and today the situation is much better how concerned are you about the relationship between Iraq Iran in this situation well the we've seen recent protests in Iraq against the Iranian domination in Baghdad so we have seen thousands of of Iraqis rise up against money in domination Iran has been running an expansionist foreign policy for some time president trump is standing up to that and the regime is not used to being told no but for the last three years we put in place the kind of sanctions and other deterrent measures that have weaken the regime and we can that's proxies so the regime does not enjoy the support of the Iraqi people you had a handful of terrorists who were at our embassy yesterday but that does not represent the views of the Iraqi people who want Iran out now while hook was diplomatic about Iraq's responsibility GOP congressman mark green told fox news he thinks it's a bad idea to pull troops out of the Middle East right now because Iraq has not stepped up to the plate I think it's proof that this president you know who uses a very proportional measured response when he's confronted with these kinds of situations if you look at the drone attack when they shot down our drone he essentially refused to do a Connecticut strike been and and used a basically a computer virus to destroy their their missile launchers and then they attack us we had eleven rocket attacks against American forces inside Iraq in the in the region and we responded with five attacks on their campus now they're escalating it even more and and has been said many times this is organized by the I. R. G. C. supported Hezbollah militia there were uniforms in the crowd yesterday from the images that I saw flags of those units this is an orchestrated terrorist event and you know the president is right he's not going to allow another big guys especially not now I mean it would clearly be interpreted by Iran as appeasement as running away just as we did you know after small yeah I mention small yet but you know Bill Clinton basically pulled all our forces out as soon as we got a black eye and that empowered bin laden to say these Americans will stick and fight so we cannot do that especially now we've got to stay what we need is Iraq to step up and be the allies that we certainly treated them you know they were invaded by ISIS and we came back and basically liberated them from ISIS so they need to do their job to protect our forces in our assets in our embassy now hundreds of militiamen and supporters attacked the embassy on Tuesday protecting our pro testing I should say airstrikes against an Iranian backed militia that killed twenty five fighters the U. S. says that Malaysia is responsible for a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base that killed a US contractor here at home the market will start the new year with new highs when trading resumes but can the bowl run continue well into twenty twenty well White House adviser Peter Navarro says he sees a continued expansion despite record deficits and an inability to rein in spending well well pet lectures do have consequences Joe and and when we did negotiate that appropriations bill we had to deal with the democratic house and that led to a lot more spending that we otherwise war they had but you know I think I think twenty twenty here's here's the difference between by Donald J. trump and maybe the old roaring twenties what what trump is designed to turn the Republican Party into the party of the working class what he's brought about is a structural revolution that continues in terms of restructuring our economy going back to the future manufacturing we have a strong defense industrial base we have a trade policy based on America's first and not having the U. S. treated as a piggy bank yeah we got a half a trillion dollars a trade deficit to get down we do that that's going to be a growth machine so structure way we're gonna be sound through through the twenties and a again it's it's all good and it's it's a strategy Joe that dates back and not just to that day after the election you and I sat together and make that prediction but throughout the campaign this economy stems from the DNA of the trump campaign it goes back to the seven jobs plan promises in June of twenty sixteen and those four points in the economic compass the S. and P. five hundred finishing in the year up twenty nine percent that was the best showing since twenty thirteen the Dow at a twenty two percent and the nasdaq advanced thirty five percent of people judges camps as he raised more than twenty four point seven million in the last three months he now has a staff of five hundred people nationwide is campaign said Wednesday raised seventy six million since he launched his bid including more than two million contributions from over seven hundred thirty three thousand people that potentially places the south bend mayor above many of his democratic rivals including Joe Biden it does not put him above Bernie Sanders more on that in a moment now former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines told MSNBC although Biden's poll numbers remain strong Biden has a cash flow.

"Hongkongers and protesters and I joked joked about it with a friend a couple of days ago because he was like. It's Christmas and I was like. Yeah it's tear-gas Smith. They do really worry about mental health consequences of this when it's such an everyday reality for you and career for your friends and your family's safety and I think that's the hardest thing to come across sometimes like how deeply personal is for every one of us here but but at the same time. I'm also really worried that it's going to end. Because our past history has shown that when our protest movement of ended nothing much happens afterwards words and the political situation always gets even worse and so I basically fear for all kinds of outcome.

"Protesters smashed down a door and set fires. The State Department says the embassy itself was not breached and has not been evacuated. Washington Washington is blaming Iran for the protest. Wait Iran. But we're talking about Iraq. It's all really confusing. Said help explain. I'm joined by the world's Chris Wolf Chris. Who are these protesters well cow pictures? Show and witnesses say that these are mostly men who belong to a pro Iranian militia group called Qatar Hezbollah most not carrying carrying weapons but many all wearing those uniforms of that organization and carrying their flags. This is the same group. Carol that was bombed by the. US Air Force on Sunday and the same group that allegedly attacked the US base near Kirkuk on Friday killing a US contractor so just to recap events wise we had Friday the attack on the US base. which killed an American Eric on Sunday the US retaliates there s strikes and then today we have the assault on the embassy compound so going back to that Friday attack at the US base? Why would this this Iraqi militia group that is loyal to Iran attack a US base We don't know for sure but there have been dozens of similar attacks over the past few months against. US targets in Iraq. Not as big as this. which involved thirty rockets that the? US government says the attacks are being directed by Iran. Iraq's big neighbor to the east Iran's and going broke under the pressure of the global use embargo on oil sales Trump's maximum pressure campaign. And it's been trying to find ways to put pressure back on on the US to relax those sanctions and one of the ways it's using is to have its friends around the Middle East region Goff. US targets Oh so real proxy anything Iran using a militia group in Iraq to go after US interest there too in some roundabout way pressure the US to lift sanctions or to who deal with Iran. Right yes so indirect pressure campaign okay. Another question is why are there even any armed militias roaming around freely in Iraq at this point yeah let alone once controlled by a foreign country like Iran. We have to go back to two thousand fourteen. That's when Isis the Islamic state movement annihilated one third of the the Iraqi army in a single battle so the Baghdad government appealed to the masses of Iraqis to help defend the capital and hundreds of thousands of people formed these ad hoc walk militias and they did play a critical role in the fight against Isis. But these are not just like well armed neighborhood watches. Many were formed by political groups. Many were sponsored armed and trained by Iran so this was tolerated by the US in Baghdad because of the emergency need to to fight Isis but they would never D- mobilized is Georgia's armed so the events this week they show a real anger at the US by Iraqis. What's at the root of that well? Let's be clear. There is no single Iraqi Iraqi point of view rather Iraqis a complex mosaic of regional ethnic religious and political interests. So it's difficult to generalize but historically many dislike the fact act of US conquest and occupation from two thousand and three but the specific complaint. Today is that the. US is attacking bombing this pro-iranian militia. This is is the first time that the. US has taken this direct kind of military action in Iraq against any target other than Isis for almost a decade and many Iraqi see it as an affront to the country's sovereignty and the pride but we must remember that Iraqis are also plenty mad at Iranian influence to the been massive bloody demonstrations in Baghdad throughout throughout most of this year against corruption and Iranian influence. And those have been much bigger than demonstration today at the US embassy. The world's Chris Wolf thanks so much. You're welcome I'm Carol. It's already twenty twenty.

"So my understanding is that after the Six Day War in Israel after sixty seven. Suddenly the situation of the Jews became much more difficult than yeah of course of course after sixty seven. It's it's more difficult because Israel won the war and they tried to revenge from the Jewish Iraqi in Iraq and a lot of people were arrested. Some people were even executed. Yeah Yeah and then what happened to the community in the next Thirty years during the years of seventy the people that try to get out of Iraq in nineteen eighty maybe where Only two hundred Jewish people in era as the Jewish community was getting smaller and smaller. Did you still go to the synagogue. A- of course of course and did synagogues closer as a result of that time have only one synagogue one one well and what did you know about Israel growing up at that time. I'm not know anything about Israel the television and the radio in Baghdad.
