Suicide Bombing in Crowded Baghdad Market Kills at Least 32

"We're gonna turn to Iraq to the Iraqi capital Baghdad because there's been a double suicide bombing there is completely studied two people and wounded more than 100. The attack at a busy market is the worst that the city seen in several years. Police and eye witnesses say that there were two blasts in swift succession. At the market in Tyrone Square, which was crowded with people Samir Club is Associated Press is Iraq correspondent and in Baghdad. How common is such an attack? This attack is very rare in Baghdad. The last time this occurred was in January of 2018, and that was shortly after then Prime Minister Haider al Abadi declared victory over the Islamic state Group on guard difficult. Lee was around the same area that the attack occurred. So it's been a while in Baghdad. However, attacks occur regularly in other areas of Iraq. And what are the authorities saying about what happened and he might have been responsible. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but Iraqi military officials have told us that they believe it was the work of the Islamic state group. Basically what happened there was two men. One of them created a bit of a scene in the middle of the commercial area that he was pretending to be ill. Crying out loud. That prompted a crowd together around him to see what was going on. And it was then that he detonated the best. Shortly after that another individual came and did the same, which is why we see such high death toll today, right? So really pretty cynical way to try and cause as many casualties as possible on does that does that bear the hallmarks of VIAS, then? Absolutely. We have seen similar attacks perpetrated by I s elsewhere around Iraq. The suicide bombing is something that they have have done. It's very much their style of attack. Especially here, and that distinguishes them from other groups. Militia groups who have perpetrated other kinds of attacks launching rockets, For example, at the US Embassy, It's It's a very different style of attack. What about the timing? Just one day after President Biden's inauguration of people reading something into that thinking that might be significant? There's a lot of speculation that dad and Iraq in general, there's a lot of tension leading up to Biden's inauguration. But that was mostly related to the tensions between the U. S and Iran that has played out in Iraq in the last year. Nothing at all related to the Islamic State group. While there was anticipation of something happening, I don't really think anyone expected something like this to happen. Just one final thought. I mean many people listening. Aziz say they haven't been any major attacks in Baghdad. And so it hasn't been in the in the headlines, and many people thought that Islamic state had largely been routed. I mean, this suggests that they're still very much active and a threat Is that fair? Absolutely. They're still a threat. Like I said, The attack in Baghdad is quite rare. But what we have seen is over the summer, an uptick in attacks and other areas across northern Iraq in particular. This is an area that has been historically very difficult to police. The Iraqi army as well as US led coalition forces have conducted many operations to root out Isis cells there, especially with the Corona virus, and measures that were taken to reduce the presence or the rotation of security forces around this area believe those areas It seems that that militants have taken advantage of this to launch attacks. But in Baghdad, this is definitely a

"Yeah. Don't have to over explain that doing so, but Hillary, he came to power legitimately. So did Saddam Hussein. Actually, he was the general of the Iraqi Army and vice president. And then as the president came But I think he fell ill Saddam Hussein started to take on more and more power. And finally it was just like I'm president forever now. Okay? Yeah, And I think that's the case, like the point of this article's making is that there's a number of different ways a dictator can come to power. They could come to power in a power vacuum. You can come to power in a coup, which we'll talk about the coming to power democratically. But if it's the kind of person who Wants to rule. Unfettered. And if they come, they know how to basically work. The populist sure and the circumstances are right. You know, like, maybe there's fear of outsiders coming your way or the economy is bad or something like right. Then you can conceivably consolidate your power in turn, whatever situation into a dictatorship. Yeah. I think it's more It's based on the person and the circumstances that the nation is in with that person. Grabs power than it is on how they actually get into power. Yeah, and whether or not the current leader just happens like, be out of town or something. Yeah, that's another big one. Like sometimes. Yeah, that's well, Let's go and talk about who should be okay. Sure. So COO. Is there different kinds of coup or Judita? But, um A coup is different than a revolution in that there is Is generally a smaller affair. It's not some big mass uprising of people. It's a dude gets ah, smallish band of his military cohorts together. And like we're talking about either someone is sick or they're dying, or they're just out of the country on business, and they come back and they're like you're not in charge anymore. Yeah, Sorry to tell you. Yeah, they're like hand. The discount. This dishwasher is not worth leaving the country for over this. It can be who's can be very bloody and violent, but they don't have to be. In fact, I think a lot of times they're not violent. Knows the term of bloodless coup. Yeah, and it's basically a couple of the things that make coups or is it just coo like you're saying No s? No. There's enough. Is it silent? I don't know that. So we're going to go a cooze. Okay, A couple of hallmarks of who's that You were saying like they're not popular uprisings. It's a small elite group that decided to do it usually the higher ups in the military. And it can be blood. That's where it can just be like you're not in charge any longer. You're out of the country Stay out of the country. We're putting you in exile right? They can be bloody, especially if the person who's being deposed has a lot of loyalty. In the military as well. Yeah, then it can turn pretty pretty bad. Yeah, but I get the feeling that a lot of times the coup isn't attempted unless they feel like they have the support to pull it off. Well, I mean, look. Att Turkey. The people who tried that coo like just a few months, but I honest truth. I don't know what happened to them. I think, Erdogan said, like the people are going to be punished but not necessarily executed. But I don't know if that's true or not. That's another thing that could make a coup bloody that it can fail, and then the people who were carrying out the could get executed or it can succeed. And sometimes just for good measure. The people carrying out the coup execute the former president, which was the case in Peru with Pinochet. Sorry. Chilly, actually. Where Ah Pinochet took over because apparently the parliament asked the military to get rid of the old guy, Salvador and a and they said All right, fine. We'll do it, and then they executed A and a Yeah, The coup doesn't always mean a dictator comes right and either sometimes a kook and just be temporary until they can elect a new national leader, right, But it's just basically Just a very small overthrowing of the current government. Right? That's all. Do you want to take another break? Yeah, Let's do it, okay?.

"Iraqi army is what built the resistance, which we had to fight, and you can drop a plumb line. From that to the Islamic state. So I think that we would be well served to give this military the opportunity and tell them this is your chance it seemed that after the Planned Parenthood body parts scandals coupled with the horrible discoveries at Kermit guys abortion mill in Philadelphia, the abortion rights movement was decreasing and influence, or at least we had hoped in January the state of New York enacted one of the most liberal laws in the country legalizing abortion up to the point of birth. My colleague, Mike Gallagher spoke with a Texas legislator, tan Parker, who's leading charge against this. New push. Look at the issue of life. The sanctity of life. Have we ever heard a more pro-life president in our lifetime Representative tan Parker is a perfect example of that kind of warrior out of the great state of Texas. He's currently in his sixth term. He is beloved can we can we take a breath and understand that we've never seen a president fight for border security who went the way this guy has the realities here in Texas. We understand the situation with the border better than anybody, the poorest border causes all kinds of issues we have to secure our border, and we're proud you're in Texas. President Trump is doing in the back of the standing so firm, and I'm so proud of the focus on on life everywhere. I go I've said this for years whenever I give a talk somewhere. I talked to meet one on one with people. And I talk about the need to have leadership that the defends the unborn that defends the sanctity of life that defends the elderly the defends the disabled. I mean, we've got a president who does show and yet we've watched a shocking shocking admission transparency from the Democrats this this law in New York what they tried to do in Virginia that got Ralph north and all the trouble. He's in Vermont, Rhode Island were seen this steady March towards Democrats who want zero restrictions on abortion. Which is, you know, Representative Parker includes late term abortion. It's pretty ghastly. And yet they're Republicans who are trying to to fight the good fight on this issue. My it's just barbarric, frankly, it isn't fantasized. What's in promoted in states, like Virginia and New York? I mean, it's the most disgusting thing the world that in these organizations and these members of the legislative bodies, okay? It's okay to board a baby forty weeks is just absolutely unbelievable. So riffing. And so I'm proud of Texas. I'm proud of the fact that Texas is standing up it's important for US Republicans to be strong and the United and that we protect life from conception the natural debt that we take care of the most vulnerable in our society. And so that's why I'm very honored to be a part of the leadership team working to make certain that we passed the Bill here in Texas. It's a house Bill fifteen hundred as you said known as the Texas heartbeat Bill. Let's talk about what it does. Representative Parker spell it out for the nation. It's very very simple. A heartbeat can be detected. The baby will be protected. It's just that simple. The reality is is that the heartbeat is a universal symbol for life. And so if there is a heartbeat that unborn style will be protected we mass this legislation. It's and it's happening around the country a fetal heartbeat. Bill was also filed in Florida's Senate Mississippi has a heartbeat. Bill working its way through committee. Similar efforts are underway in Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee now, what you're up against our activist judges, which is of course, again, why elections have consequences Iowa pastor heartbeat law last year, but a state judge declared it unconstitutional and struck it down last month. Isn't it fascinating? That critics of this law say that a heartbeat can be detected before woman realizes she's pregnant as if somehow that obvious gates the reality that this is a living human being.

To take on the stories to who to interview. So even if you're not on social media. You're listening to the radio you're watching A T A cable news TV show your shape by what's going on online. And of course, it's not a much of it. If you have this manipulation possible. It means it's not authentic and early groups realized this, you know, examples we cover in the book range from force the the now infamous Russian disinformation activities where this mix of sock puppet and bought accounts. You know, mentioned was was widespread highly influential again, not just on Facebook. You can see the same plane out on Instagram YouTube Twitter, of course, one of the counts we illustrate within the book is on one called Tennessee GOP was claimed to be a Tennessee Republican who wanted to take their country back. Of course, now, we know it was a Russian on information warfare account that w-. One account that single account was the seventh most red account on election day, twenty sixteen not the seventh most read of the more than three thousand Russian sock. Puppet announced the seventh most right overall. But those very same tactics were used by ISIS, for instance, to drive its messages viral, and we illustrate how in the battle of Mosul. Isis had a much smaller physical invasion force at about a twenty five hundred soldiers that are invading against a defending force on the Iraqi army side of about twenty thousand so a one to ten disadvantage, but through similarly a mix of Bautzen sock puppets, ISIS drives its messaging viral, it makes it self appear as if it's winning controls the narrative online, and then the Iraqi soldiers are reading our smartphones. And they believe it, and then they run away to we seen this move into everything from celebrities and marketing campaigns for. Products. And again, the product might be a movie there was a wonderful recent story about how a lady Gaga fans mimicked the Russian disinformation warfare campaign to go after rival movies that were coming out the same weekend as her new movie kind of a fun amusing story, but if you were the producers of those other movies, you didn't like it too. Again. There's there's a history to this one of the examples in the book, politically is the practice of what's known as astroturf ING where you have grass roots movements where people truly do organize to support something. And then astroturf scene is where you create the false sense of phenomena. So one of the ones that's mentioned in the book is Newt Gingrich. When he ran for president in twenty twelve his this is reported not just say this over a million fake. Followers. So it creates a sense of there's this massive online following for his ideas. If you remember one of the ones he promised was a moon base by the year twenty twenty you know, that did not get the support. But by creating this astroturf phenomenon it makes them appear more popular than they truly are. So again that selling a political product, but the same thing can be done in the physical products that you bought..

Isis returns to its insurgent roots

"ISIS is returning to its insurgent roots having been driven out of almost all the territory it once controlled in Iraq and Syria four years after ISIS controlled as much as a third of Iraq declared a caliphate. It is retrenched, but it's still the power to carry out kidnappings killings and bombings. Khloe? Cornish took to Andrew England about the continuing threat posed by the group to stability in the region. In two thousand fourteen ISIS notes the blitz across Iraq and Syria. And at one point I think they control about third of Iraq and major cities in both countries. What's been happening in the last couple of years since the caliphate will the self declared caliphate has been defeated all the situation being in terms of how they've been pushed back from their strongholds. Rockford. It'd be Iraqi government declared a military victory over I his about this time. I should having won back control of major urban areas. Which I is it invaded include the northern city of Mosul Iraq's second largest city. So that was a fight that nasty three and number players involved. That's the fighters from the Iraqi army which had initially kinda crumbled in two thousand fourteen faced with the ISIS insurgency, you have Kurdish vices mcken fun region. You also had low of shin initial groups who had formed pretty much in response to the ISIS threats that was facing Europe. It was big big movement to mobilize additional fighters to protect the country. And a lot of those groups actually have a radian bucking. So all of these people working not always very well together. There was also west and involvement as well. Intensive ashtrays on ISIS targets in Iraq. So that's how that fight with paying out. And then in Syria, the situation is actually more complicated because the fight against ISIS is just one really the much larger civil war. So in Syria, ISIS territory was concentrated in the north east of the country on the big cities rocker and data which probably will be familiar to people. Now, you will probably see the social glasses destination of those cities under the weight of US leda strikes. So in Syria, ISIS is in fighting on the one hand Russian-backed pro regime Syrian forces with Iranian involvement and on the other hand US backed Syrian rebels. So it's actually been facing kind of both sides of the civil war and Russia and their Resor fell from ISIS control this year amid much lodge. Hush by the feeling of as well, so retake areas in the south the country. So there was basically a big effort by local and international forces to push them back in both countries. What do we know about what remains in terms of the ISIS fighters? Isis supporters across these two companies. At one point in August, the US apartment defense was saying there about three thousand ISIS fighters in this pocket in Syria, the this territory they control, but it's very important to be cautious about them. The I think it's very hard for us to know, exactly. How many fighters they're all lest and how many schools is they have across Iraq and Syria. But we do know where I this is holed up in Iraq. They've got we think they is in the hammering mountains, which a very very Thakin offense mountains kinda the middle of a rock, and they don't say tax from that. And then they will they will have more bases a more positions in northerner as well. And there's continuing worry about sleeper cells of ISIS, fighters and other parts of the country as well. You mentioned the being pushed out of the major cities they controlled in the major church they controlled house they adopted the way the carrying out attacks. Because they do continue to pose a threat as we've mentioned. Yeah. Absolutely. I just thought it at a terrorist insurgency and then gained these huge swathes of territory. Very frightening. Modern two thousand fourteen and what they've done is returned to the insurgent route that they came from much smaller terror attacks people just disappeared into the desert rose and trying to hold her Trie. So that seems to be the strategy now is to continue to destabilize these areas with smaller hit and run attacks, but still deadly unfortunately for civilians and officials who have against targeted in Iraq. What impact is that heaven? I mean, obviously in Iraq this chiefs ways the county Sedikh control, which has to be rebuilt about reconstruction. The need to get people who were forced out of the homes back and these areas which always felt very marginalized slightly by bike dad and was a new government in Baghdad. What impact is it having? Terms of Iraq and Iraq's ability to build on the security gains. And then in Syria where we're seeing the civil war is winding down as prison. Bouchara sats voices have reclaimed control of most of the country and get mentioning just how much progress hasn't Nate unsecurity interactions on his was holding touchy. Yes, they all these kinds of attacks. But the Iraqi security forces constellation is vice is happening execution type outweigh. However, you know, is people continue to feel threatened by ISIS attacks that really undermines any kind of official assets to restore stability in the sense of security as well in these places. I think it called me stress. Just how dangerous life can still feel. I think in face it might be better than before. But if I this is coming to your village and killed the most important tests and in that village issue the local chief, which is confident analyst of seen them doing. That contributes to a sense of instability in Syria. This is the of most active fighting still in Syria to try and expel ISIS from the last pockets territory, and so you have continual battle casualties that. But of the overall civil War, I suppose, the American involvement there is the most important thing because America's said it's in Syria in order to ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS, and so obviously the longer that they have to fight. I enjoy the longer they're gonna be there they north. They started to link that crisis in Syria to Iranian presence as well. And they want to be honest to see Iranian forces in Iranian proxy forces also being expelled from Syria. But the continuing bustle against I means America continues to have military presence into it as well. At one point when they controlled large areas in Syrian Iraqi Lee had oil resources that smuggling results the customs, they had taxes, etc. How they survive today. Does this indicate that perhaps they still have certain areas where they still have support. What do we know about what sustaining them? I guess it's important to stress how wealthy ISIS was at one point. It had opened up by volts that had huge oil revenues, and they invested some of that money into companies anything for money exchanges car dealership, and I think it's pretty hard for the authorities actually pinpoint which companies they beat in order to to function or stop them from operating. So what we understand believe that they get revenues from these companies, they also can stop and extort trucks on roads, and that kind of thing, so certainly they've knees are much much diminished. They are much much week before the nab were, but they do still have revenue. Streams coming in one of the notable things about twenty fourteen was her the Iraqi security forces, which the Americans have spent billions of dollars rebuilding of the invasion in two thousand and free melted away when they were faced with the fruit of ISIS, how it quits to the Iraqi forces. Forces to continue maintaining the offensive against ISIS and prevent a resurgence. I mean that would seem to be one of the critical things going forward. I think we'd have to say that the Iraqi forces are stronger than they were full. However, the US department defense expect to general recall, I said, I've how the fight against ISIS going. Deep highlight socks. They didn't think Americans would be able to leave Iraq anytime soon intensive needing to keep providing support to the Iraqi security forces one of the things that diplomats stress here as well, which they sometimes feel like they're not being heard back in their home capitals. Is that I it is not done thing. He's quite far off didn't thing in the and in that regard is going to need to be continuing the just ical and probably material support full voltage contracting. Is it not an easy thing to do counterinsurgency is in some ways. Much harder execute than ground offensive in love wage. You know, you don't know coming from. It's a difficult thing to do. And certainly the Americans in fact that the Iraqis are going to need help with it for the foreseeable featuring ever since the US invasion in two thousand and free ousted Saddam Hussein the have been sectarian shoes and publicity extremism in a country, which is now run by the Shia majority, people would say that's helped fuel the extremism that ISIS has been able to tap into. Do you think that those issues have been tackled have been dealt with? And how important will that be going forward when the new government in Baghdad looks to rebuild and reconstruct areas that came under ISIS control? I mean, exactly as you say they'd been real continuity in fans is a long-standing trending towards extreme in amongst some communities in Iraq sent doesn't three hundred before is well and the government now needs to do. It can to restore service days and its authority in some of these areas happen just so badly damaged by war. But we're also neglected before the ISIS insurgency and before people decided to join you can see. So, you know, it was just politics and conflicts, very localized in Iraq. But you can see there was a broader trend towards any extremes. And I think actually that has been a swing by though. I mean, I was just so brutal. That polling suggested the obscene. He's actually will let in favor of more hardline version of is not not the people. So I did. So in some senses, they lost support that says to me in a country where there have been real kind of weaponization and sectarian identity. This is not a problem. That's going to go away without tackling some of the courses.

Stephen Hawking auction raises astronomical sum

"Our permission and agreement. It's hard to do. But that should be the goal period. That said nations should be compassionate. We should have effective immigration laws. When you see a column of people that's made up of women children and young men who wanna get across to avoid danger in Guatemala Honduras. It's hard to consider them invaders. Okay. Now, you talked about the importance of a nation should be able to control its borders. President Trump has sent thousands or will ultimately sent he says fifteen thousand US soldiers to the border to control it what there's been some pushback from from various senior military figures. Would you be among them? I don't think it's the move that. I would recommend. I think it also plays to emotion. I actually think it was designed to go before the midterm elections to meet with the idea of invasion of this caravan. But it's actually should be viewed separate from should we control our border? I think that shouldn't be a debate. That's something that we as a nation should do. But when you send a bunch of troops down to the border, and there are some legal limitations of what they can do you need to make sure that you explain to the American people that this isn't a classic invasion, and our soldiers aren't going to man the ramparts and shoot the invaders. Because that's an accurate. Okay. Except we know that President Trump has said I'll tell you this anybody throwing stones rocks like they did in Mexico where they badly police and soldiers in Mexico, we will consider that a firearm implicit in. That is the idea that they might be shot at well. I think it would be dramatically. Tragic to put soldiers in a position where they particularly shoot immigrants moving forward. Okay. And not as wet this. I mean, this is fascinating. It is an extraordinary issue. But there are senior military figures. General Jim WBZ who oversaw the effort to build the Iraqi army and police I think you'll know these figures he said, the militia was where the military is being used for partisan political purposes it's dangerous because it will political politicized the use of force in ways that democracy should avoid now. He said that actually just about the sending of the troops. And he's right. I think do because. Right. I think that we've used military force for political reasons as far back in history as you can record it that said, it doesn't make it right? Particularly for symbol like this for internal domestic politics. I'm critical of this move. But what I want to make sure we don't do is. We don't then say what we should control our borders. Of course, we should. We need to make sure that's clear sometimes we get around the political rhetoric. Forget it can you imagine the image would come up if immigrants came forward, and we use physical force against them. I mean, what it would do to the United States reputation in the world to the morality of the soldiers put in that position is unconscionable. Okay.

"Radio station If I am forty more stimulating talk is the dark secret replace Brian suits in here on till eleven o'clock, or new hours by. The way eight pm to eleven so please enjoy, coming up in, the next break a naval mystery the mystery of the missing, man March of. Nineteen forty two a man overboard mystery that has not been. Sold to this day drone wars the first commercially available drones that were. Weaponized happened, in Syria and Iraq and they they happen because the men of ISIS who don't have an air force did have money. And had access to European markets and. For that matter markets in Turkey and so commercial drones usually under about two hundred dollars were purchased in Turkey off the off the market Just, in toy stores or whatever in Turkey brought into Syria and then the the simple, engineering matter of adapting the usual HD camera hookup underneath the drone to do something as. Simple as release a grenade was actually fairly simple if you if you don't know how this works I've met a couple of drones with HD, cameras on them or. With mounts where you can mount a little gopro, camera on them, and the drone communicates by direct wifi to your to an, app on your. Smartphone where you can use the gopro camera or the built. In camera as a sort of a virtual piloting cockpit where you can. Put the, camera forward and you can fly the drone around as if you're sitting there on the drone but you're looking at the. App on your phone is actually a. Lot of fun and that's how they do those drawn races like in Balboa park and things like that Anyway some of these drones can carry You know up to Up to two and a, half or three pounds and some of. The really significant ones the ones that are used for actual filmmaking or commercial production can can wield up to. Seven or eight pounds and so what was done by ISIS in Syria was a simple matter of replacing the, camera mount, underneath with With some sort of mechanical release or in many cases leaving the camera and using that as guidance system and then, including a mechanical release because as you. Recall nothing happened in ISIS world unless they had video of it and so starting about five years ago you began seeing these pretty amazingly, cinematic HD drone shots of a drone undetected at about a thousand feet coming over a Syrian army position or an Iraqi army position and then it would lower in place it, would lower a couple of hundred feet. And when it seemed to be stable and the the cameras seemed fixed over one particular area like a bunch. Of fuel or munitions or whatever the the drawn would drop a adapted forty millimeter grenade that had a thin For instance like tissue paper role for a tail fin something. Really really crude but it oriented and. Stabilize the projectile in flight so it would generally fly straight down and it would blow up on impact and they did this for hundreds, of times before they finally got a success they finally got a spectacular success in the form of exploding Syrian ammo dump and It looked like they had mastered drone warfare and so they were immediately copied they. Were copied in Yemen by the who sees they were copied by. ISIS in Iraq They were copied by ISIS inspired terrorists and, Libya but the guys in Syria. Were the originators of it and really the masters of the craft so some of them Began putting stories up on YouTube or other other sort of dark, web or even, slightly light regular web read it and fortune. Started putting how to videos on how to modify common battlefield munitions like forty millimeter grenades into. An, aerial drop impact weapon and Furthermore how to modify commercially available drone something that could get off van Masan and shipped to Turkey or whatever into a killing machine now the the range of these drones generally is not really more than a mile that goes more than a. Mile than it's going off GPS at which, point you have to, know the precise location of where the bad guy is and then you you drop the munition. Well so this was Successful as a propaganda play. In Syria but really not much more it was an annoyance as the Iraqi army overran Mosul about a. Year ago, the guys. There in in, Mosul the ISIS guys they had several years to prepare for this they had an arsenal of hundreds of a cheap little drones the ones that you get, for less, than eighty bucks at target or you can get them on Alibaba Amazon and they had nothing but time to modify them and, also to teach, their man how to utilize them so the. Iraqis had a lot of men wounded a few even killed but it was really more of. An annoyance and anything else but it did produce some pretty spectacular video of for ISIS you got this video of Iraqi soldiers running around after the first one hit or when they heard overhead so anyway fast forward now in Israel the HAMAs terrorists have been using kites and, it cetera too Start.
