Not all in one but in a series i nuclear. If you actually succeed bill trust then you go to the next thing then you go to the next and we fumbled the ball on the first one.

Iran is one of the youngest societies in the world. What do young people want. And how much influence do they have. Well the young people in iran are extremely diverse. I mean the entire population is. It's not just that the young people are all pro western liberal that's a big segment but also most of the revolution regards the that deploying the streets are are also high school dropouts and and young people i think four most what across the board and the our segment of the people want is jobs economic security and opportunity which has actually been doing and then they those who actually have money and have the means want culture if i one of the reasons that why in the past five years on trump you didn't have a mass movement in iran is because what what the rich want in iran. What would middle-class wanted. Ron is different from what the poor wanting era ride. The pulled want the rich hats. they want economic distribution. They want they want jobs.

"Prevailant in iran that the moderates and reformists are not able to address iran security issues. It's almost like winning. The nineteen fifty sixty seventy americans thought that the republicans would be better at managing the soviet union riding a wrongly. So right now. The moderates in iran are even feeling serious candidate because the formula date saw. The iranians didn't work right. They were supposed to be defaced. That would open up onto the united states. The us has rebuffed him to the conservative. Are saying you step aside. Let us handle. Washington let us of the european and more than likely going to see a more hardline. Iranian candidate win the presidency. That will have an impact. Most immediately on the nuclear talks for civil. A new team. Means that you're not gonna be even continuing the news with nuclear conversational september when they come in and then after that you're going to have fresh faces who won the elections on the back of being tough with the us who who do you think will we don't know yet. I mean the candidates List would be vetted by may eleventh. There are two or three candidates that are former in regard commanders which are running on sort of law and order an- and also management ticket. There are a few members of the parliament conservatives. There are smattering of moderate and reformist candidates running but none are really serious candidates. I mean most people think that we will not reinstate of course until closer to date and also a lot rests on vienna if the iranians ended up coming back from vienna completely empty handed and that would be decisive. Let me ask you and press you a little bit on the other side. The political problems here you mentioned menendez and others who have continued to believe that iran subversive behavior has only accelerated yet and people talk about the the shia crescent from the gulf to the mediterranean and that iran basically subverting other states. I mean how does one include this in the nuclear talks. Because it's it's gonna be hard not to include it. No it's going to be hard to include it actually first of all. I don't buy the fact that the nuclear deal made iran more aggressive. I mean that was good. Talking point that iran's enemies in the region put on the table and has stopped. I mean the reality. Is that the united states also turned around right after did the deal and sold hundreds of billions of dollars of weaponry to iran's rivals so iran began to invest in a missiles and proxies etc. It's true that it isn't a in a massive competition with with turkey and saudi arabia and israel over control of the region. He's not the only country responsible for subversion and but the reality of it. Is you not going to change. Iran's behavior without having this nuclear deal because the maximum pressure on the nuclear deal has given iran every incentive to retaliate and to make life more difficult for the united states has no incentive in a sense to deal with now. The program with negotiations is that you can't have everything on the table in the negotiations. Right if you if you if you're gonna put everything on the table you gotta be negotiating forever and you can't say when we wanna talk about an. You voted iranians and say okay. We want we're gonna give you these sanctions and then they will say okay. These sanctions are worth this policy. So what do you want. Do you want to talk about iraq or do you want to talk about. This is gonna talk about the nuclear program. You're not going to talk about everything right. And in any negotiations both sides begin to narrow down to. What's the most urgent issue right..

I think the important work is being done to understand. How do we subvert that in in our real actions in the world or in the things that we that we care about. How can we Buys something else to balance it right or compensation for yeah exactly. Yeah which is not so much do right. Exactly get his point. Is i think to some extent. He's trying to be humble and it's important point because when you write a book about rationality or irrationality. People often have their kind of suspicious that you think you're rational and you're telling other people are irrational and so i totally understand the impulse to try to to avert that suspicion by saying you know. Oh i can't overcome these myself which simon's my ability to work in people. Right right. I think it helps make people more receptive especially if you know commons book. Thinking fast and slow was about the existence of these biopsies. He wasn't trying to offer a solution. So i didn't actually need to convince people that it was rediscovered in nature freight. Yeah but you know. I would be surprised if he if he hasn't made any progress at all in noticing these spices and himself and overcoming them just talking to him. I had lunch with him a couple of times and he came to a couple of workshops that iran. He's he's quite good at at at avoiding overconfidence and another bias.

So what's your assessment of the meeting and its potential outcome but the meeting was it was an important breaks because it hadn't been any meeting whatsoever since president biden took office. This was the first meeting. But i would say that progress was very slow so there were two sort of discussions that happened in vienna in tandem. One one was on what iran needs to do. In order to get back into compliance. And what is it that. The united states needs to get back into full compliance as what set of sanctions that it does. It have to list and the iranians believed that all trump era sanctions were put on. Iran in iran was in full compliance according to international atomic energy in january. Two thousand seventeen trump moved out of the deal and with sanctions on iran. So they basically mean. Full american compliance means going back through twenty seventy but the us. First of all is reluctant to do that. Because it wants iran to exceed to expanding the deland be willing to negotiate on other issues and secondly as a poison pill that the trump administration multi designated sections so. Let's say an iranian ship would be designated under the nuclear deal for not selling oil. But if you put the same ship also under terrorism designation it's not as easy to lift the sanctions and congress may make a hue and cry. this is not nuclear. This is about terrorism so in order to make difficult for biden to lift sanctions serve. The trump team had made these multi designations that basically has become an has become.

Who Keeps Attacking Irans Nuclear Facilities?
"Sometime on sundays something went dramatically wrong. At iran's nuclear facility in tons tehran's atomic agency says affected the science electrical distribution grid power was out. It was initially reported as a power outage. Which would have been serious enough where nuclear plants are concerned. It is not simply a matter of switching them off then switching them back on and seeing how that goes it has become increasingly apparent however the was a bigger deal than that. Us intelligence officials have been quoted describing a decent sized explosion natanz which destroyed a subterranean electricity substation along with several thousand uranium enriching centrifuges. No perpetrator has claimed responsibility. But as far as iran is concerned. This has all the makings of the world's shortest who done it. Tehran has issued several characteristically thunderous denunciations of israel. Israel has adhered to its usual protocol in such circumstances refusing to comment officially but making sure that israeli media is tipped the wink by israeli intelligence sources to the effect that yes.

US Troops to Leave Afghanistan on 20th Anniversary of 9/11
"The washington post broke the news. That president biden plans to withdraw. Us troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. A twenty twenty one. That's the twentieth anniversary of the nine. Eleven attacks biden is expected to officially announce this news on wednesday fourteen. So the day this this episode comes out. There's currently between twenty five hundred thirty five hundred. Us troops in afghanistan. And there's up to seven thousand international mostly nato troops. It sounds like biden's team landed on this withdrawal date in this decision. Because they know they can't meet the may one us troop withdrawal deadline that was negotiated by trump. But these peace talks that they've been trying to push forward are still going nowhere so they seem to think that by announcing the eleventh date they can split the difference they can delay the withdrawal which at this point is probably logistically impossible but not provoked the taliban into resuming attacks on us forces. Ben i'm guessing that all these nato forces will come out shortly after the. Us forces do because they rely on us for a lot of logistical support. There was a line in this post story. That said that some. Us counterterrorism assets will be positioned outside of afghanistan to remain capable of striking extremist groups in the country. I assume that's talking about some sort of drone based nearby. I don't know so. I guess my reaction to this news is i am extremely worried about what happens after we withdraw. But that. I think this is the right decision. Like so i worry. The taliban could gain territory. I worry about the stability of the afghan government. but i've also seen no evidence that a continued. Us presence will help solve those problems. And i've seen some people argue that the us being there actually makes everything worse. Any thoughts from you on this policy decision or the symbolism of trying to tie this withdrawal deadline to the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. Yeah i mean. I think first of all people in particular progressives should understand that this is like a really big and bold decision by joe biden. Yes trump's at the deadline but trump said it like as he was walking out the door and you did not remove all troops and. That's the huge step. The big step is to get to two zero troops so this is not just an extension of trump biden had to be the one to take that decision and i'm certain that the military was cautioning against it. I'm certain that people were warning probably correctly that there's all kinds of negative scenarios could play out.

It's not even clear. If tomorrow's talks will proceed. The attack seems to have been the result of an explosive device that was probably smuggled into the natanz plant most likely detonated remotely when they took out the electrical systems and cause some of these centrifuges to fail. Roger mcshane is are middle east editor. The exact details are unclear. But i think what we can be pretty sure about is that israel was behind the attack. And that's because it's not being coy about.

That face is the face of a general who cynically attacked and killed American servicemen in Iraq since two thousand and three and also most unfortunately engaged or was complicit in warcrimes in Iraq and also in Syria these two faces that showed the complexity of the individual. MM-HMM I respect. I won the war hero. But of course I condemn the other face. which is that of workroom?

President trump is a great deal by any content and and many others. Let's let's work together to replace the JCP get the trump deal instead can. How is this playing out for Donald Trump? Well you know other than the fact that one hundred seventy six innocent people killed which is something. That is incredibly terrific On a cold strategic level. You'd have to say that this is not going to badly for Donald Trump. You know Iran has lost a significant military military leader. Someone responsible for many American deaths. He was touted as a possible future president of Iran. She was the king of the roadside bombs. Great percentages of people don't have legs and arms because of this of the Iranian government has been exposed as having lied to its population. It's less credibility and now a wedge is being and driven between Iran and Europe which has so far opposed many American policies on Iran on the other hand the killing of Customs Slimani was a major event and the strikes that we store in Iraq. Last week will not be the end of Iran's revenge so what happens now what we don't expect to see any more military action in for example the missile strikes we saw last week. But you might remember that. Last year there was this wave of of suspicious attacks across the region said there were these drones and missile no strikes on Saudi oil facilities. I'm oil tankers in the Gulf suddenly started to Have Holes appear in their holes and found themselves mysteriously early disabled and they couldn't quite say with precision. Who had done it?

When we're we're back to go on there we think that's one of the rockets that landed out in open ground? So Ian. I know things are changing our to our this morning at this moment. What what do we know about damage or casualties? What are we talking? Yeah well what. We're hearing from senior Administration source is the. US casualties at the moment. Which of course will be an enormous relief to families back at home But the situation remains fluid and an assessment is still ongoing. We we have heard unconfirmed reports. Perhaps there were Iraqi casualties. There will be an assessment of the damage there and the questions about the targets. These were not too obvious targets especially up in bill these two kind of remote basis if you wanted to cause a lot of damage more importantly if you wanted to inflict a large number of casualties take these were the two of size to do. But we're not talking about direct contact between two big countries in the United United States. Clearly far more powerful than Iran but nevertheless isn't just a proxy forcing you can kind of ignore and okay. Well it was just them. We'll just deal with them on the side. This is now dealing with the entire country of Iran and that is much more problematic because I think one of the lessons from the Iranian strike is that they consider anywhere in the country a valid target said as much. Don't just here in Iraq but the US service personnel and the US diplomats considered a valid target. Now by the Iranian regime wherever wherever they are in panel in the country reporting on this crisis all of a sudden found himself right in the middle of this crisis. Em thanks so much. Thanks Brad So. These missiles went from Iran across the border into Iraq. Well we've got a reporter in Tehran. ABC's chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz Right. It's Martha as I said earlier. You actually spoke to one of the top leaders in the Iranian government. Foreign Minister Mohammad. Javad Zarif I mean when you spoke to him. Did you get the sense that something like this was coming. I I certainly didn't get the sense that it was imminent but it was chilling sitting there with the foreign minister and have him look q in the eye and say that they would be taking retaliatory action. Do Not as took an actor. Awards have to be prepared for the consequences. I wish and he told me it would be against the US military. I ask him if they would take. US civilians off their target list. Yeah well you see it on his never put. US civilians on its target. This and I said well that sounds to me like it would be the. US military that makes me think clearly they will be US military targets. That's what our military people have said. But that's his decision that we would make at the the appropriate time and that is exactly what happened just really hours later what we have learned just as we came on the air with World News. Tonight I'll Asad airbase in western Western Iraq in Anbar province has been struck at this point by Iran. These are a ballistic missiles that came from Iran and Iranian. TV is reporting at this hour tens of missiles he also said quite clearly that if there was an attack Iran would immediately take responsibility for that attack and that came rather quickly when we started hearing reports that missiles had hit Iraq. Yeah I was going to say Martha the and this was missile. After missile it is that the end. Though or should we be expecting some sort of prolonged blitz by Iran. You get a sense. Some of the rhetoric coming out of Iran makes me think this is it military forces statement warning what it calls the Great Satan the arrogant American regime running TV calling this a revenge vange operation. The missiles fired tonight. Part of what Iran is now calling Operation Mutter Salami. I think one thing to watch obviously is how the United States reacts. Thanks so if there is a mild response in the United States this may ended. It made deescalate the situation. I think it would be the bend of us in this reach. Although on the other hand one of the other things that is a reset was that they want all U S forces out of Iraq doc. Out of the Mideast out of Syria out of all these places where they have been for so long on that would be a very a high price to pay for the adventurism of a couple of people so that also is something to watch. FX Reef issued. A tweet last tonight after all this went down saying that Iran acting legally and then he said this this was key we do not seek escalation or war but will defend ourselves against any aggression so defend ourselves against any aggression which would seem to imply if the US doesn't do anything else. We can be done as well. Martha Raddatz talking to the leaders of Iran in Iran. Thank you thanks. Brad always good.

For more on how these attacks are being felt across the region on joined by Christian life wreck. He's a professor of political science. That's at Royal Military College and Queen's University. He is in Kingston Ontario Christian. Good morning to you. Good Morning I want to start with the story. That's unfolding in that region. That's top of mind for so many Canadians right now. That's the death of one hundred. Seventy six people on board or Ukrainian plane crashed in Tehran. Sixty three Canadians. Among those dead people will wake up this morning. It's shocking news and people wake up this morning in the knowledge of the attack that we've just been talking about but then here of this plane crashes well and might initially connect the dots between the two. How are you reading what's happening? I mean the official statements have been of course that they're not related but One things the Iranians would have done in anticipation of of possible. US strikes against the missile launchers or for instance radar sites is that they might have used. GPS trackers and would possibly turned off either all sorts of other electronic equipment or try to use electron equipment to misguide and US assets cruise missiles planes or whatnot And so it's entirely possible that in the field of circumstance A civilian plane would readily get disoriented and not get for instance the proper sincere answers to knock right not the proper paying height for instance So so I think we'll. We would need an independent investigation to ascertain that whether we're actually going to be able to get that out around That'll be difficult ascertain. We'll follow that along as it develops in the meantime wh the attacks last night in these two basis. Why do you think those bases in particular were targeted? So I think the Iranians were trying to minimize the prospect of catering allied assets or allied personnel personnel other than the. US and the look. The Iranians have very good intelligence on what's happening on these basis It seems that several of the missiles also missed their intended targets and that was probably the greater risk A missile might fall somewhere where the Iranians had not intended it to fall then inadvertently Cost Collateral American Damage so I think it was meant as a clear signal that this was a strike. Against the United States it was not a strike against the NATO mission Oregon's partner countries within the region. Why do you think no one was hurt? Mark Rosenbaum hosing ball was suggesting that perhaps that was that was by design from the Iranians. Oh sure I mean. The Iranians could've retaliated right away. They have the intelligence they have the capabilities. There was no reason why the Iranians had to wait other than perhaps to honor the fallen general in morning Among the more time they gave the Americans more time Americans obviously had to move assets and people out of harm's way And I think that was very much intent Over the Iranian propaganda the machine had to retaliate. In some capacity the Americans would have much anticipated And so this is largely for the exploitation of domestic propaganda and for the the existential continuity of the regime rather than trying to inflict maximum damage on the United States. Canadian military has hundreds of troops in Iraq began moving the troops to Kuwait yesterday and the operations in Iraq have been paused. Do we know whether all of the Canadian troops out of Iraq I suspect the tweet by the chiefs defense stuff with indicated that if that had been the case of course now moving troops so it gets a lot more complicated because you WANNA make sure in case there's further strikes You don't confuse Canadian vehicles with Iraqi or US vehicles or whatnot. so I think they'll be considerable. Thinking of National National Defense and Kenya enforces this morning about how to ensure both the safety of the personnel and the ability of Canada of course in its leadership position will also have leadership roles to play Ah In assuring the safety of personnel and Alad Asset. Where does that? Where does that leave the role of Canada? A pause and operations isn't ceasing operations. Where does that that leave The Canadian troops so Canada will have an interest in a united. NATO is so Canada has like some other allies has withdrawn its troops The commitment by secretary-general showed America has been to restart the mission as soon as possible. And that's in the broader interests of of Canada because it wants to shore up the alliance then either lines is arguably the most important. Multilateral Institution of which candidates part and a significant interest enforce multiply for Canada in so Canada will not be the one breaking ranks it will be taking its cues from its allies And from the NATO they're also trying to counsel just in the final minute that we have when these attacks were launched. Last night I think a lot of people probably wondered. Is this the start of something that could get much larger and perhaps spiral out of control. MARKLE's inbal suggesting that perhaps there's the opportunity if not for diplomacy than certainly for de-escalation. Do you see that opportunity as well. sure I mean it doesn't missiles is is a fairly modest response The European Union yourself on the line has been really very active in trying to mediate with Iran Germany has indicated that it is actively talking to both Iran and Washington. And I think the statement by Secretary General Stoltenberg about the escalation is awesome. Awesome all of branch to Iran that perhaps There's a silver lining here and there may be an opportunity to negotiate and generate an endgame. That is acceptable. Both to the United States and Iran Iran both gone out of the current situation in for the region more broad than I guess the first signs of that would be what the US President says this morning. He's expected to talk later on today. Well as unpredictable as he is the unpredictability may also play to his strengths In terms of restraining BS Iranian leadership.

What were you hearing in the capital? After the attacks took place we did hear a fair amount of helicopter and actively Baghdad coming from the Green Zone. What do we know about how much damage these missile strikes caused? It's very likely that caused damage to at the very least you know equipment on the basis particularly the Assad military base in western Iraq which is one of the biggest military bases Chirac why these bases the US has a presence throughout Iraq. But why were these basis targeted do you think the. US is hosted on Iraqi military bases but these two in particular have a fairly large USO troupe present in the u the Assad military base in western Iraq is known for having the largest amount on a US troops in Iraq. So you know. I think the goal was to aim at US personnel and he was interested in rocks. Is your sense that the Iraqi leadership knew that these attacks were coming well. They just said that they knew the acting. Prime Minister of the method just released a statement saying but Iran alerted him to the fact that they were going to launch missiles and he in turn Let the United States no to You Know Essentially Watch out. He also has not come outright and condemned the attacks. What does that tell you? I think it tells us that. The Iraqi government has a fairly close relationship with Iran Mathie with originally brought to power by a coalition that has Iranian backing And prior to all of this happening met the cell the the money several times You know it shows a clear difference in rhetoric at the same time you know we have to look at the damage caused by these strikes Eh She's like. Nobody was killed in missile strikes. The thrust of the statements coming from the Iraqi prime minister if you take them in its totality seemed to suggest that the Iraqi leadership wants the heat to be turned down. The prime minister has called on all sides to practice self restraint adhere to international agreements. Respect the Iraqi state And is concerned about a devastating all at war in Iraq the region and the world. What do you think the leadership wants from from the two uh-huh forces that that that have put Iraq in the middle of this conflict? I think of course. They don't want to be trapped in the middle of a proxy war Iraq. You know has just gotten out of several years of conflict And I think the you know the prospect effect of being plunged into another war between two states that you know are fighting battles that have nothing near truly to do with Iraq. It's something and that is terrifying too many Iraqis and I know that Iraqi leadership. It's very much against the possibility Iraq being plunged into violence into chaos again. Told me more about that. In terms of how Iraqi citizens feel you tweeted as you said that that in many ways they feel trapped between The United added states in Iran. Yeah I mean we also have to look at kind of the local context in Iraq.

"And And the revolutionary legionary guards were involved in pushing them back in Iraq in particular that made the group but also general money pretty popular in Iran. I think there were some polls taken that had him at over seventy percent popularity in two thousand sixteen but the other side of the flip side of that coin. Is that the fact that he was the the face of Iran's influence in the region also meant that anytime that something happened that was negative on the part of groups that were funded by Iran in Iraq. For example then that would be directly associated with the Iranian government. He had been a day of tension culminating in this the Iranian consulate on fire after being stormed and by a group of protesters demonstrators venting their anger about Iran's alleged involvement in Iraqi politics. He was the architect of Iran's regional activities. He had built relationships with groups on the ground. In countries like Iraq Syria and Lebanon and he was is really leading Iran's efforts in the region but again none of this was without controversy. He had very violent methods at times and a lot of what Iran was doing. The region was stoking. Sectarian tensions having said that he was the leader of a of the force which is the external branch of Iran's Revolutionary Guards and the Revolutionary Guards are absolutely not a one man show which means there are others who will be able to continue what he has. I've been doing in the region so he's left big shoes to fill but he's not irreplaceable. On that subject who is a successor so the supreme leader appointed his successor quite quickly after they announced that he had been assassinated the successors name as Brigadier General. Smile Ghani He. Who was the deputy in the votes force? So he's not as charismatic. He's not as popular. He's not as well known as the money was but but he has been his right hand for a number of years and so he really understands how the organization works. He has a very good feel. For how the Revolutionary Guards themselves work. He knows exactly what they're doing in the region and I believe he was involved in pushing back isis under money when when the Revolutionary Guards were. We're we're focused on that. The challenge that he's going to have moving forward is building the same personal relations that mining built over the course of his entire career with different people in different groups on the ground but I think it should be surmountable just getting back to the Iranian people. Right now. How much harder to their lives? Just get if this if this conflict between Iran and the United States is only growing. I don't think that lesson.

"It's hard to imagine millions of Americans pouring into the streets after the killing of a US general but the Iranian version of that has been happening for days now in fact so many people were in the streets. Streets of General Solomon his hometown in southeastern Iran. Today that there was a stampede. It was reported that over fifty people died and over two hundred people were injured. Everyone rightly wants to know right now. The world is about to go to war over all of this an unfortunately. We're going to have to wait and see. But in the meantime what is it about this general that would bring out millions compel people to risk their lives. I asked asked Dina s spend Jerry. She's a fellow at the Century Foundation in London. She focuses on Iran. We started with how many people are actually out there so it's really hard to come up with specific numbers because nobody's counted them of course but as the images of shown there do seem to be quite a lot of people out in the streets. It's and they also seem to be spread throughout the country so there was some in Adams money's hometown There were many many in Tehran. And the interesting thing is that aside from these demonstrations being spread across the country there are also spread across the spectrum which means that people who are either supporters the government or even against government. Everybody has given up on those or at least forgotten them for now and come out in support of US until the money and why what is about this guy. That's led to this. You know massive outpouring of support. The main reason for it obviously is that everybody is coming out to celebrate what they consider a national military leader in hero of the nation who has spent the better part of his entire lifetime defending being the Iranian nation. Now this doesn't mean that those who are out are necessarily supportive of the methods that awesome Sulejmani used throughout his career in order to defend the Iranian nation. In fact he's still quite a controversial figure but the fact that he he is the defender of the Iranian nation commands the sense of nationalism amongst Iranians and the fact that on top of that it was a foreign country that ordered his assassination has really brought out the feeling of nationalism amongst Iranian so there is no better way to unify Iranians wins than in the face of an external enemy but I suspect that what the trump administration did was that they were building on the protests that occurred in Iran a couple months ago where again across across the political spectrum people were demonstrating against their government Iranians of taking to the streets by thousands and what began as protests denouncing a hike in gasoline prices but the uprising quickly turned political with demands that top officials step down the Iranian government responded with a five day Internet shutdown. These protests protests were shut down pretty aggressively by the Iranian government and so I think the trump administration will have extrapolated from that that Hey Iranians are anti either government so there's no way that they're going to pay this much attention if we go ahead and take this very problematic figure out. And what was the mood in Iran before Sulejmani death so. I think it's key to understand that Iranians things are not very happy at the moment given their economic social and political situation. There's a real sense of exhaustion amongst the Iranian public particularly exhaustion with regards to Iran's relations with other countries Iran's relations with the US on top of that Iranians or a little taken aback by where they are today. They don't really understand from their perspective. Their country made a certain number of concessions in two thousand fifteen when it joined the nuclear nuclear deal Iran implemented the deal and so they don't really understand why it is today. The trump administration has spent the last year or two squeezing them as far as he possibly could economically so there is a real sense of exhaustion of discontent in Iran but the assassination of lessons really money was the greatest gift that the trump administration could have given the Iranian government now Iranians despite their discontent have basically I put that unhappiness on hold in a show of unity to come together and showed that they would rather deal with their own government. Because it's a better the devil you know Oh perspective then deal with foreign enemy. What does his death mean for? Iran's military operations Questrom Sulejmani has left big shoes to fill here. They are members of the elite Revolutionary Guards on the frontlines of serious civil you during the course of the civil war in Syria roundabout the beginning where tensions really escalated within Syria at the Iranian government mint in coordination with the Revolutionary Guards launched this PR campaign around General Possum Sulejmani basically portray him as the face of Iranian Uranian efforts in the region that was a bit of a double edged sword on the one hand it was very successful in elevating the importance of the Revolutionary Guards in making the very popular particularly when Isis came within forty miles of the Iranian border.
