"Why don't you talk to us I about some of the common complaints and things that you see as women come to you either in their late thirties or early forties? And some of the things you often suggest to help them with it. So one of the main things what one of the things that I tried to to to model my practice around is I've been lucky to have a great pediatricians for my kids over the years and one of the things that I loved about them is that at their annual visit I sort of have gotten over the years. An anticipation of what's to come in their development. So when they were four and I was reminded not to be surprised about nightmares when they were six, make sure everybody knew how to swim and as I've sort of modeled my practice around that so Different Ages. I talked to women about what to expect what's coming, and so pretty much what I'd like to cover when women turn forty is. First of all period irregularities. So periods go wacky at the age of forty for many many many women sometimes they get closer together. Sometimes, they get heavier sometimes stay longer in it's really important to know what is normal versus what is just what is abnormal and could be a sign of something being wrong. So I tried to explain what's going on in the background because that helps a lot of women understand and a lot of. Women whom I see just want to know that everything is okay. They see some changes they don't necessarily they're not bothered by them. They don't necessarily want to treat them are going any medicine. They just want to know that everything is okay. But when you see a change in your period when you've always had a perfectly regular monthly period now all of a sudden is coming every three weeks that might see have normal where actually. Isn't. So it's important to remember that in the background are ovaries are getting better, and so they have a limited life span, which is around forty five to fifty years about the age of fifty or fifty one most famous start the transition into menopause Tomase, your ovaries just stop responding to the input from the rain they start making their Hormuz they stop ovulating but before that they get a little bit lazy and they don't really. Respond they don't really let the brain know too well that they're still doing their job. So your brain starts driving them a little bit harder. The brain doesn't age the brain would like our to keep working for forever. So that signal from the brain gets really really really strong but sometimes array say okay, fine I got it. I'll do my thing and so you get pretty much higher highs and lower lows of your normal hormones. And the cycle links between your periods gets a little bit shorter 'cause ovaries almost working a little bit too well in response to does signal from the brain. So that's why if you've had a period that has always been every twenty eight days and now all of a sudden, it is twenty four days that seems like as almost a week too early, but it's not that's totally fine. That's just the brain responding to that increased influence from the or the ovaries responding to the increased signal from the brain. But also since your hormones are hitting your ovarian hormone estrogen progesterone are hitting higher highs and lows. Things like PMS can become a little bit more exacerbated if you have a much higher progesterone level in that second half of your cycle, some people actually start to feel. The beginning of hot flashes right before their period as your estrogen is hitting alot than it ever has before the period can get a little bit heavier because the lining grows a little bit thicker if that estrogen is high in the beginning of the cycle higher than it has been. So all these things have a reason why they're happening, but they can be really really really bothersome. So these are like higher amplitude screens which were already doing but now they're actually kind of going wider in either direction and potentially at a higher frequency, which is what all of us want right now I'm scared. So. It's really really annoying. Now again, none of this is is is there's nothing wrong. Then this there's note illness there's disease there's nothing wrong but as just really really bothersome and it comes at a time in life where for many women their children are getting older there might be other life changes, just normal body aging into it's more difficult to lose weight the joint start aching a little bit more perhaps there's more responsibility in a job, and so it just hits all together at the very wrong time.

U.S. Seizes More Than 1 Million Barrels Of Iranian Petroleum From Tankers

U.S. Seizes More Than 1 Million Barrels Of Iranian Petroleum From Tankers

"The U. S. Has seized more than a 1,000,000 barrels of Iranian fuel aboard four tankers that we're heading to Venezuela. The Justice Department called it the largest ever seizure of fuel shipments from Iran and said it was because the tankers were in violation of sanctions. The move is part of the Trump administration's campaign of maximum pressure on Iran. NPR's Jackie Northam has been following the story and joins us now. Hi, Jackie. Hi, Sarah. So what can you tell us about what happened with these ships? Right where the seizure of these for Greek own ships happened earlier this week, and the Justice Department says the order to seize and confiscate the cargo was issued by a U. S District court and that the US along with the assistance of foreign Partners confiscated the cargo on board and this was done by a ship to ship transfer of the fuel. You know, it's a little uncertain what type of fuel there talking about. It could be bunker fuel, which is used for heavy machinery, and I like Or just plain old gasoline. Either way, it was bound for Venezuela, and now it's believed to be bound for the U. S. And the Justice Department says the proceeds from its sale will go toward the fund for victims of state sponsored terrorism. And where those four tankers now are. They also on their way to the U. S. Well, it's unclear right now. The four tankers turned off their location. Transponder is more than three months ago, so we don't know where they are. At the moment. If the U. S has the ships they could be brought back here to the U. S and sold at auction. They could have been handed back to the Greek shipowner. We don't know. I talked to a couple of analyst today, including shipping analysts, and this action is really just seen as part of a broader effort by the Trump administration to put pressure on Iran by going after shipping companies. That are carrying Iranian fuel or oil, or even the insurance companies that they use and threatening to sanction them. If they deal with the Iranians, you know. For the past few years, the administration has been heavily sanctioning Iranian in Venezuelan, for that matter, companies and individuals and this is just a different route to apply pressure on the regime. And what is Iran's saying about this? Well. Iran's ambassador to Venezuela rejected the US justification for this seizure and confiscation as fake news, and he called it another lie and psychological warfare by US propaganda machine and said that the tanker's have nothing to do with Iran. The fact is, Iran really needs the money from its oil sales. They've been hit very hard by the Trump administration's maximum pressure campaign, which will sanction any country dealing with Iran. So any sales that it makes have to be kept quiet. And you know, even though this is a seizure of just over a 1,000,000 barrels, it's a shot by the US directly towards Tehran. And we're hearing about the seizure. Just today. After the U. S. Announced it had brokered an agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. They're going to establish full diplomatic relations. That new friendship is seen as being driven by their mutual dislike for Iran. So Iran maybe feeling more isolated. Now, Jackie is Iran expected to retaliate for the seizure of its ships. Battleground, has vowed to resist US attempts to isolated and could certainly see these events as a really challenge and feel it may need to stand up for itself using whatever is available for them to respond. You know it might try to seize vessels of its own if you be called just over a year ago, Iran seized a British oil tanker and it's 23 crew members in the Strait of Hormuz in retaliation for British forces detaining on Iranian tanker in Gibraltar also last year, is believed Iran was using Mine's to attack ships in the Persian Gulf and you know, the U. S says already In the last few days, Iranian forces boarded a ship trying to take the petroleum on board but wasn't successful.

Pompeo making spur-of-the-moment trip to Mideast as Iran rules out talks

"Of the Russia Mike Pompeii was headed over to the Middle East it is unclear the around strategy that is actually being pursued I think that the actual foreign policy of the United States is wise and kind of always will be muddle through because the American people aren't interested in empire building I think correctly so the American people are also not interested in full scale isolationism because every time the United States gets isolationist we get a Pearl Harbor nine eleven so we end up being mildly reactive. isn't in the world the bases all over the place with a strong military and we can react to threats but we don't want long term occupations or invasions we're not into that sort of thing and so what happens when there's a hot spot like Ron tends to be the possibility of a flare up and then it kind of receives a Ron is is the is the herpes outbreak of the Middle East the Iranian government may flare up and then they sort of receipt so Mike Pompeii always trying to create a policy right now The Washington Post reporting. that the trump administration has announced that Humm Hey would fly to the Persian Gulf on Wednesday to discuss a response to an attack on Saudi oil facilities as Iran's supreme leader ruled out any direct talks with the United States has spur of the moment trip which will include stops in Saudi Arabia and the UAE underscores the danger the tensions with Iran could spiral into military conflict president trump has said around is probably responsible for the attack that he would like to avoid a war I'm pale has assigned blame more directly in front obviously obviously does not wish for there to be a war with Iran at this point is why I suggested that the likely solution here is that the United States pledges to strengthen the defense of Saudi Arabia without pledging any sort of aggression and aggressive action against Iran I think that's probably the happy medium where the U. S. ends up we maybe end up helping flags and tankers in the straits of war movies and guiding those tankers through the straits of Hormuz against the possibility of running aggression reestablishing some sense of deterrence. the weekend attack which the United States says it believes originated in Iran despite claims by rebels in Yemen that they carried out appears to dash all hope that trump might meet with Iranian president Hassan Rouhani at you and General Assembly in New York well the Iranians I don't think were all that interested in face to face meetings with trump I think they're more interested in pressuring Europeans to break with trump and undermine the JCP LA the the the revocation of the of the Iran nuclear deal. ends once it's rendered Iran gate is pretty much that simple the Europeans want Iran to get their money they want to run to be part of the world economy and they don't care if one's friends terrorism all over the Middle East they simply don't care because they figure the US is going to foot the bill anyway if something goes wrong which unfortunately has been European foreign policy since basically the light cold war know that the fact that that trump and when when trump says that Europeans are not pay their share of their fair share for defense that's technically true I mean United States basically footed the bill for all of European defense for several decades during the Cold War and allowed them to live high on the hog in terms of social welfare programs well Europe can pursue that policy again but there will be some tragic consequences to that policy you're starting by the way to see those consequences in terms of the outbreak of national sentiment in Europe largely driven by the increase in an unfettered Muslim refugees coming from the Middle East into the heart of Europe and creating all sorts of social schisms. and the the around the leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said all the officials in the Islamic Republic unanimously believe there will be no negotiations at any level with United States again they're trying to pressure the Europeans this is not about the United States at this point I think that the way this ends probably is with the United States trying to trying to strengthen shore up Saudi defense without getting involved

"How far could the United States and Saudi Arabia pusher confrontation with Iran well the allies are considering how to answer an attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia the United States cast suspicion on Iran without yet offering evidence in public the Saudis have offered what they say is evidence that the attack was quote sponsored by Iran the Saudis dismissed the armed group in Yemen that claimed responsibility Iran says it is not to blame here so what now let's work through this story with NPR's Peter Kenyon has been following developments from missed and ball hi Peter hi Steve what did Saudi Arabia present well they showed some drones and missiles that they said were clearly a running weapons what they didn't do in so many words was declared that they have any proof that the attack was launched from inside Iran they say that still under investigation so we'll have to see if that's just a matter of time or whether re maybe leaving an option open to avoid escalation yeah I guess if they say sponsored by Iran that actually still gives a little space between saying it was actually Iran committing the attack but have any outside groups independent observers of any kind but able to weigh in on the quality of the evidence at well France has said it doesn't find the other claim which was by the who the rebels in Yemen that they were responsible for the attack Frances that's not a very credible claim and of course Washington's laid out and quite a lot of detail why it doesn't believe the who these are capable of an attack this big this sophisticated carried out over several hundred miles distance and Peter is you know very well this comes amid rising tensions between the US and Iran and the Saudis for that matter have the U.

I. A. that's totally false or this is not a lie they put out propaganda they put out the lights Pakistan would have to do a thing like that and then the president went on to this kind of eighteen he didn't he didn't let up on a running back and never lives you know Ron does unfortunately so let's see what happens with Iran we are ready for the absolute worst and we're ready for sense too so we are very geared up and if they if they are they are really the number one state of terror in the world now I have to say they pulled back because they use their money is running very low the deal the president Obama made was a disaster because it was such a short term it didn't cover ballistic missiles and they couldn't see the important sites under this you could inspect important sexual many things wrong and of course we gave a hundred and fifty billion dollars plus one point eight billion in green green beautiful cash that's cool many playing lots of cash I think Pakistan would like to have some of that cash they give one point eight million dollars in cash which is fine thinkable and instead of being respectful and thankful which frankly they should have been to the United States and the president Obama for making that ridiculously else instead of being respectful the put their finger in the air and is this for you they put their finger up in the year and they just respected the United States he should have done that that was a big mistake a one of the best things I've done is terminated at ridiculously low they want to make a deal its use frankly it's getting harder for me to want to make a deal with Iran Hey very badly this saying bad things and I'll tell you it could go either way very easily very easily okay either way it goes now senator cotton to summarize the Lisle adi said they lie a lot they put out propaganda they put out lies they are the number one state of terror in the world I think he demonstrated more understanding of the mole was after two and a half years and president trump and his team did after eight years what did you make of the president's candor that pretty much sums it up you he touched on the fundamental nature around forty years they've been waging a campaign of terror and aggression against the civilized world find overthrow the government of their neighbors thank you hostages and supporting terrorism it kind of summed up the challenges they face mail their economy is on the birds of the depression we totally what our sanctions taking hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars away from them that would go to a terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah I some of what they're doing they're lashing out right now because of the constraints of the sanctions and that error the last remnant of the nuclear deal all orders well now senator you remember the Mayaguez incident at the close of the Vietnam War the last actually in a more many people three marines killed when they can hear Rouge took a freighter and we took it back are the bridge justified in using force to get back their ship of course the pressure just fine using force to reclaim one other vessels that was hijacked by running a pirate and taken hostage inside of the lawn always lead to go with their leadership transition today Boris doctors just announced the winner battery will be taking over the reins of the British government but the I'd be surprised if the British people are going to stand for long the ayatollahs hi jacking their ships and taking their talents to the United States I'm confident we'll stand with our British allies now is your friend secretary bomb Peyo told the Brits yesterday it's their job to protect their ships that's sort of the Nixon doctrine revisited what do you think about that your every nation has an obligation to protect itself and protect its interests Great Britain still has a navy that has all of the pending those interests what we would like The Great Britain do what we're like the all of our international partners and allies do its former broader America I am security and they should as inside the golf that is going to stand up to one outlaw nation the combined might of the United States and Great Britain and the civilized world with babies to support such a national or exceed anything that Iran can bring to bear now we have a new deal a budget deal it is in my view not perfect but it does fund the military for two years which I think is great will we build ships people got the Brits realize now they have gotten of ship to do what they need to do we don't have enough ships you think will actually build the ship center cotton you I haven't reviewed the details of the budget agreement yet it happened late last night I am pleased there is some increase in defense spending it's not as much as secretary Mattis proposed as final budget before he resigned late last year but staring down the threat of radical budget cuts because of the dead hand of an eight year old law boys up pretty stark alternatives I'll be reviewing the details going forward whatever happens with this budget deal that this that this moment is a good example of why we need those ships no matter how advanced how technological are technologically superior our ships are a ship cannot be in both the South China Sea character lined up the Persian Gulf correct Iran and the Mediterranean or the north

R. convoy and that they were guarding our ship civilian ships that were going through the street to make sure they weren't picked up or attacked cell this is nothing new but here is what's going on the Brits and the Europeans say they were perfectly justified in picking up that tanker on the way to Syria and that therefore all the release of holy sanctions one is that when you talk about what you think we're part of the agreement we have sanctions so here's the bottom deal or the bottom line you take one of ours we'll take one of yours and there's actually a recording of what was happening when the Ronnie still talking to each other the Brits in the audience we're talking so this is a recording of what was happening all.

"Hey, welcome. This is the Ben Shapiro show. Got a lot to get to today. We'll get to in just a second Democrats jumping on Joe Biden over supposed sympathy for segregation or something. Plus, we'll get to the Democrats, pushing slavery, reparations why they are doing this right now. But we begin with the announcement by President Trump that Iran is in deep doo, Ron shutdown US drone, according to New York, escalating tensions around shot down a US surveillance drone early on Thursday. According to both nations, the nation's differed, on the crucial issue of whether the aircraft had violated, Iranian airspace in the latest, esscalation intentions, that have raised fears of war between the two countries, I do love, again, these cycle of violence language that is used by the New York Times. It's just the latest esscalation intentions generalized tensions out there in the universe that raised fear of actually it's just around keeps bombing things and like shooting things down. The United States is taken no aggressive military action against Iran, as none going back to the Obama administration when Iranians, we're taking prisoner. American soldiers, Iran. Unifil. Cels said the drones overrun American military denied that each side accused the other of being the aggressor obviously, we should take the Iranian contentions with all of the all of the verifiable truth that they deserve. The we should we should absolutely take a Ron's contentions seriously because they never lie about these things like wanting to develop nuclear weapons or bombing ships or anything supporting terrorists. They're perfectly honest, obviously, should take the contentions of the American government in the Iranian government, with exactly the same amount of seriousness, both of the country said the downing occurred at four oh. Five Ron time on Thursday seven thirty five pm on Wednesday in Washington journal shot down by Iranian surface to air missile system while operating an international airspace of international airspace, over the strait of Hormuz, according to US Centcom, again, in the strait of Hormuz is the geographic region. That is the source of a lot of this tension right now because the Iranians are affected seeking to bottleneck all traffic through the. Rate of homeless, which is responsible for an enormous amounts of the world oil market. They're hoping to drive up the price of oil artificially by preventing a solid supply through the strait of Hormuz. The United States. This was an unprovoked attack on a US Valence asset international airspace, in Iranian attack on American aircraft, even unmanned drone as potential flashpoints the growing list of recent clashes. Also, the White House had late night meetings. Sarah Huckabee Sanders told news outlets that the president had been briefed on the missile attack, and that the administration was monitoring the situation and then president from one on Twitter. And he tweeted out, Iran made it very big mistake. So if we end up going to war on the basis of a tweet. L say it's not ideal like we used to have a procedure for this, where you went to congress for permission to go to war, and all of this sort of thing, but it is a little funny. Downside, not constitutional upside kind of Larry Clinton, Tarantino, kind of old school. Clint Eastwood, just Trump growling to himself made a very big mistake. They and it's just the bombs launch and five minutes. Okay. So are we actually going to get into a shooting war with Iran? I think that is very, very unlikely. The fact is that, that is the last thing, the Iranians one forget about what we want the last thing that the Iranians want is a full-scale shooting with the United States. The fact is, we could just sink their military, the way that we did the rain military back during operation praying mantis, but Iran's continual escalation of affairs is going to lead at some point in the United States, having to take some sort of action here and it's not going to be economic action so that's not going to devolve into a full-scale shooting war. It's funny because the press seems to think that every time the United States fires a shot that this ends in World War Two, that is not the case. You know how many times the United States has fired missiles into particular areas in. I mean, we did it under Trump to Syria like two years ago, it didn't evolve into a full scale war between Syria and the United States, and we have American troops in Syria right now. So, you know that I'm skeptical of the claim that the Trump. Administration is ready to send a hundred and fifty thousand two hundred thousand American troops into the middle of the Middle East and it's just not something that is really on the table. So we'll keep an eye on that. Obviously, we'll keep an eye on president from Twitter feed to determine if he decides to announce any targets the Twitter, I guess that's our doing this thing. Now we're just going to wait and he's going to be like the beach has. We'll find out. Okay. Meanwhile Joe Biden, they're coming for all Joe. So I've been predicting this since the day, the Joe Biden decided that he was going to run for president. Is that all the guns would turn old Joe and I have to admit if Joe had not spent the last few years being just a terrible politician. Then I'd feel a lot more sympathy for him because the attacks Joe Biden today are extraordinarily unfair. I mean just in all intellectual honesty. They're really, really unverified axe on Joe Biden. Now here's the thing. Joe Biden has expressed sympathy for segregation as senators in the past Joe Biden has actually said nice things about segregation senators in the past, not because they were segregationists per se, but because he says lots of nice things about lots of senators because he was wait for it in the Senate. This is just something that happens in the Senate, there, lots of people in congress who prays each other on a regular basis. But now this is just terrible. How dare Joe Biden suggest that he? Was once civil to people with whom he radically disagrees. And this is, as I say, it's not unusual Steve Kornacki, who works over at NBC news, national political correspondent, he points out that Ted Kennedy used to talk about his warm collegial relationship with James Eastland. The Senator at issue in Joe Biden's comments does that mean that, that, that Ted Kennedy was a vicious brutal racist? Is that what's going on there? I really don't think so. Nonetheless, Joe Biden stepped in it because you're not allowed to acknowledge the humanity of people who you disagree with even people who you think are truly wrong about everything in whole principles. You're not allowed to knowledge their humanity or acknowledged that if you sit in the Senate with them that sometimes you have to make deals with them. That's very bad. Not allowed to do that. Instead, you have to virtue signal at every turn and not get things done in the Senate. I suppose so here is what happened to break. It down. So Joe Biden was speaking at a fundraiser at the Carlyle hotel in New York City on Tuesday night, and he stressed the need to be able to reach consensus under our system. And he's basically talked about serving. With the late senators James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge Georgia, both Democrats were staunch opponents of desegregation, Eastland was the powerful chair of the Senate Judiciary committee, when Biden entered the chamber in nineteen Seventy-three Biden said, I was in o'clock is with James o Eastland. He never called me. Boy, he always called me son. And he called Talmadge, one of the meanest guys, I ever knew you go down the list of all these guys said, well, guess what? At least there was some civility, we got things done. We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done. Got it finished. But today, you look at the other side, and you're the enemy, not the opposition, the enemy. We don't talk to each other anymore. Oh, so this is enough to ruin Joe Biden. I mean they are coming for him. And they are coming with pitchforks. They are coming with pitchforks to exactly the angle of attack in one second. I, I know you got that AARP card in the mail. You thought ooh benefits should've thought about where is your money going because it is going to an organization that fought tooth and nail for ObamaCare in organization that stood against tax cuts for middle class Americans, and small business owners. Don't join the AARP joined nearly two million others. Joining amac, the conservative alternative instead, wouldn't you rather belong to an organization like a MAC that fights for the values. You care about protecting our borders, supporting small business defending your individual freedoms, becoming a member means standing up for a constitution and for the innocence on born it means standing firm in the fight against socialism. What's more Emec offers an alternative to.

"This is Red Eye Radio. All across America. Eight six six ninety redeye. He is air cutting. I'm Gary McNamara. Welcome. And good morning. Breaking news overnight here just in the last. Our looking at five we've, we've been looking at a variety of different news sources, but just looking at Fox News right now US navy drone shot down by Iranian missile over the strait of Hormuz, a source telling Fox News, Associated Press telling Reuters latest that we have a US high altitude drone which shot down Thursday by an Iranian surface to air missile over the strait of Hormuz amid heightened tensions in the region after last week's attack onto oil tankers, a source told Fox News. A commander for rans, Revolutionary Guards said the shooting sends a clear message to the US that while Iran has no intention of war with anyone. It's ready for war. The US navy's m q foresee drone, which has the same wingspan as a Boeing seven thirty-seven was over international airspace, at the time according to the source about seventeen miles off the shore of. Veran captain, Bill urban US central command spokesperson declined to comment on the reported attack when reached by the Associated Press. But he said the drone no drone was over Iranian territory. Now, just so you know, we've gone over this last half hour, but just for new listeners, this is a huge drought. This has the wingspan of a seven thirty seven yes. And more information coming out and other senior US official told Fox News last week. That I'm Q nine reaper drone was fired on by the Iranian shortly after it arrived at the scene, where the tanker where the tanker sent out, one of the tankers sent out a distress signal that wasn't in early articles, by the way was. No, it was not NBC news, pretty much having the same thing. Central command said this week that on June thirteenth a modified Iranian essay, seven surface to air missile attempted to shoot down a different drone of the same type that had arrived to monitor one of the ships in the Gulf of Oman in the incident involving those tankers last week. So you're right. We didn't get that in in maybe because it was insignificant. Actually, I wouldn't consider that to be insignificant. That attempt would be, I think would be the same kind of action, just unsuccessful. This one was according to all reports successful in downing that, that Trump that, that is a direct attack on the US on a US asset in internet over international waters. The report is that it happened this morning over the strait of Hormuz and the, the, the one thing and you and I found this breaking story just as we were about to talk about the fact that the house of Representative on a straight line vote democrat vote voted to. Rescind the two thousand one war authorisation act, which, again, has been in effect since two thousand one we had gone over the war authorization act, many times before when people would call and say, well, what's going on in Iran, and everything else is unconstitutional because congress did not declare war, and we said, well, actually, wore authorization act, his congress declaring war, they might have not used the word this is a declaration of war, but it is the approval of congress and that approval of congress really gave the, the any president, whether it was Bush Obama or the reason that Obama was able to shoot drones, excuse me, not drones, but shoot cruise missiles as much as he did that was all based on the two thousand one war authorization act, right? And the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo has made it clear to congress even before the tankers were shot at that. If we went to a war with Iran, the president was going to use the two thousand one war, authorisation act as his authority to do so which came from congress and remember, members of congress, rand Paul. For example, the disagreed with the secretary of state on that particular issue as did many Democrats, therefore Democrats, passing to resend it, it wouldn't have passed the Senate. So the war authorisation act would have stayed in effect. But now that's mood. It doesn't matter now that Iran, according to the source has directly attacked a US aircraft drone or manned. It doesn't matter over international waters changes completely the president's legal authority to respond now the two thousand one more authorisation act when it comes to responding is moot. The president has at absolute authority to do so. It will be interesting to see how Democrats respond to this, and, how Republicans and Democrats respond to this as we go through the morning today. And get more information on it. We will know without question and the world will know without question. If the drone was over international waters. Because there are many of the world's militaries that will be able to track that missile and precisely where it came from and where it hit, not just the United States. All right. So I it's interesting because something else we didn't fold into this just yet. But the Wall Street Journal did in covering this breaking news this morning. The drones downing was announced hours after the Iranian aligned who fee rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility for firing a missile that struck. This album is aviation plant instead. Arabia US ally, of course on Wednesday. A rocket hit a compound in southern Iraq used by Exxon Mobil and other international oil firms, the fourth time in a week that projectiles have been fired at facilities where American personnel are stationed in that country, something that wasn't widely reported the relevance of to the US. I mean clearly with with Iran and Iraq. If you know the history, there's something there, but why go, why send them why send the missiles, why attack any asset or any any site in Iraq and the Wall Street Journal pointing out that you have US employees at those sites. And the question that we have is, is. And again, I'm, I'm sure this will be a question that will be asked tomorrow later on today. Look at the US comes out and says, look, here's the satellite imagery, here is from US intelligence here is from British intelligence here is that, you know, everybody's got satellites in the skies, boom. Everybody agrees. It was around that shot the missile and the German was over international waters. you know at that point the next question will be if you connect all the dots here about attacks on other u._s. assets or u._s. personnel be they military or not it doesn't matter if you have any type of plant where you you know that united states workers are at that is also an attack on the united states or united states asset or united states citizens and depending on if it's a combination of both right it could be it could be in another country but still be a u._s. asset with u._s. workers or it could not be a u._s. asset but could still have u._s. citizens there and u._s. citizens would be the target of a of of an attack which at that point the president also can respond but if you connect all the dots the next question would be this is what i would ask somebody in the white house or somebody in the pentagon or the state department whomever It clearly seems as if this all we can connect all these dots does ran wanna fight. Is a ran at the the, the point right now where they are pushing the US to attack because they believe that a limited US strike would benefit them. Public relations wise. Right. So let's full this end. This is very interesting because I'm going over the story coverage of from the Wall Street Journal in two thousand twelve Pentagon officials said Iran had shot shot at a US drone flying over the Persian Gulf, prompting strong protests to the Iranian government, strong protests. No, the commander in chief work to deal with Iran. Is that what you do? When you strongly protest, the actions of, of a of a nation like Iran. He go make the Iran deal. Wow. CNN now seeming to be in line with the other news sources up there. Fox, Reuters Associated Press the Wall Street Journal they seem to be a little bit behind earlier, but they have Arabian forces shot down a US military drone in international airspace, Thursday over the strait of Hormuz, a US, official told CNN and move that is likely to escalate tensions between Washington and Iran. The comments contradict an earlier report from Iran state run Press TV that said the country's elite, Revolutionary Guards fired upon intruding American spy drone, downing it over the country's southern coastal province inside of Iranian airspace. So there we are at, at, at this at this point. I'm just scanning that article. But that's what we have here at this moment. And again, when you, you see everything that happened yesterday, the multitude of attacks. And you look at the, the, the congressional move yesterday where you had members of congress, you know, and again what, what happens to the United States, the world's sees, but trying to pull the thority from the, the president to attack Iran, based on the on what happened with the oil tankers by rescinding the two thousand one authorization that every president has had. Is it a coincidence? I don't know. It wasn't going anywhere in the Senate. The president still would have had that authority. But now that takes that, that takes that controversy. There is no controversy. Now, if the president, if the president decided to retire. Palliate. On a eye for an eye where you just. They, they hit yours, you hit five of their assets somewhere, right? Yes. Congress. And the Democrats really are helpless, and the, the and this is a point that I'm trying to bring up does ran. No that does a ran wish for the president to authorize an attack because they believe that a military confrontation, even a small military confrontation with the United States because you really take away, the Democrats argument, the Democrats argument is gone debates gone US asset was attacked in international waters US aircraft. Right. Is it because they believe that it's in their best interest internally to rally the people of Iran behind them. Because ran, and the United States are at war. We've talked about Iran just in the last, I think it was Monday show, where we talked about that in Iran, that, that they're losing the population. Right. The population doesn't work, right? They're losing support of the population, especially young people. Yes. What is the way that you get that back? You on position that you as a danger, a threat to unify a country you get into a war. Yep. And what better way to do it than with this particular president? Right. The supreme leader actually mentioned it..

"Streams of life, worship center and ended up inside the church lobby a pastor there witness the crash, a Sioux, Tonto greens, she says, yeah, exempted that I should not time the vehicle and so they'd be able to. The judge and what caused the accident is still be being investigated this afternoon. But thankfully, nobody was in the building at the time and the second attack in as many months in, in as many months on tanker ships near the strait of Hormuz has sent oil prices higher. But thankfully, not drastically. So the only way to ship oil out of the Persian Gulf is through the strait of Hormuz and estimated twenty percent of the world's oil passes through a two mile wide shipping channel their Thursday's attack on a tanker near that critical chokepoint sent oil prices higher. But analysts are saying that the game may have been much higher in other years. Oil prices are near a five month. Low, thanks to trade tensions between the United States and China and slower growth globally and the continued shale boom, in the US is a stabilizing influence on oil prices compensating for any shocks oil supply.

"Richard. I'm John chamois. Good morning. Thanks for being with us. Big news of the weekend. We are putting some of our military might in the backyard of Iran. Yeah. There's a lot of saber rattling going on right now tends to make you a little bit on the nervous side. Joining us Senator disc institute. Pittsburgh news line CBS's military analysts. Former army Colonel Jeff McCausland, Colonel good morning. Hey, Larry, good morning to you. So Colonel just how much military own for we sending that direction. A lot of military oath. The net director ABRAHAM LINCOLN care task force which was in the Mediterranean to shoots canal and the red shake and eventually to the Persian Gulf. In addition to that, we're sending a large number of bombers into the region as a show of force to determine Iran from what is unspecified threats by the Iranians against US military forces and our allies in the region. How significant is this Colonel? I think it's very skinny time. You start moving large military forces around. There's always that possibility of somebody miss communicating an air being made a shot being fired and things escalating rapidly. And it comes on the heels as well. A dramatic increase in tensions in with raw and across the region. United States, of course, has imposed economic sanctions back on Ron after pulling out of the Iranian nuclear deal for a time. We had waived those sanctions against other countries trading with Iran, most notably our allies Korea, Japan and Turkey as well. As India and China Trump administration has said those waivers will be ended. And sanctions we placed on those countries if they continue to trade and oil with her on and the last leaves the Trump administration has declared the Iranian Revolutionary Guard an actual terrorist organization. So all that is ratcheting up tensions across the region. In response the Iranians of clothes. The straits of Hormuz and actually declared the entire US military a terrorist organization. You know, Colonel the Iranian Foreign Minister in a recent interview with sixty minutes made the point that Iran felt like those around President Trump, we're pushing him towards this and name specifically Bolton Netanyahu pushing the president towards some sort of a confrontation with Iran. Do you think there's some validity to that? There's some validity to that. There's no doubt about it. At John Bolton has been extreme hor liner with respect to Iran for many many years, and it was unusual in this announcement on the movement of the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN task force that was made by national security adviser Bolton that's curious to me because I don't recall that happening in past again. He's an advisory not really the chain of command and announcement of the moving of large US military forces would normally be by the president the secretary of defense and the chain of command or perhaps the chairman of the joint chiefs, Mr. Bolton as well. As secretary of state Pompeo have been the most outspoken critics ever on ener kalihi hardliners. And finally, of course, President Trump has been a staunch supporter of Israel, and particularly the Netanyahu government at this particular moment as well we see ratchet tensions in that region with. In the Gaza Strip launching up to six hundred rockets on days, Rayleigh territory. Oh the weekend. And it's -nificant number of airstrikes by Israel in response with the death of four or five people, unfortunately in Israel and more than twenty people in the Gaza Strip Colonel in the early part of the Trump administration. He had some pretty powerful generals around him who would temper this kind of talk a little bit. Or you got the impression they would. But those people aren't there anymore. That's true. And the people that he is brought around. Anyway, you suggested are much more hard line about her on secretary of defense. Shanahan has been very quiet about this. But frankly Shanahan is not known as a major policy figure, and he's still an acting secretary of defense. Clearly, the one person it still has around the president the chairman joint chiefs of staff general Dunford, who I would think would be a moderating voice that we haven't seen much done in these particular discussions, and one wonders how much advise the president's actually listening from the eyes of the world will be watching our fleet headed toward the region. We appreciate your expertise as always Colonel. Thank you. Thank you guys. CBS military analyst and retired. Army Colonel Jeff Macon's Lynn. Yeah. And about twelve hours ago. Yeah. Twelve hours ago, the president tweeted once again is real faces a barrage of deadly rocket attacks, by terrorist groups, moss and Islam achieve hod. We. Support Israel hundred percent in its defense of its citizens to the Gazan people these terrorist acts against Israel will bring you nothing but more misery in the violence and work towards peace. It can happen. The president ordered Twitter last night. Oh, this topic. Meanwhile on the lighter side, if you are one of those binge watchers or watching all these shows game of thrones being the biggie on TV right now, probably game of thrones. And then avengers endgame are both big on you don't want to see a spoiler. So how do you avoid them? Here's Jonathan gig Liatti..
