misunderstanding If any any assembled Russian units move across the Ukrainian border that is an invasion Which he says will bring severe consequences which is what he had been saying all along until yesterday Ukraine's president Vladimir zelensky has spoken directly to his people saying there is no such thing as a minor incursion and that any crossing is an invasion and saying that the U.S. understands that We know there's a potential war threat We are ready for it But we are doing our best to our preparedness would not be needed We are doing our best to find a diplomatic solution We are

minutes past the hour Let's get to our guest Brett mcgonagall chairman and CEO of capital link Brett we had a big rally in the Hong Kong and China markets yesterday It seems to be about more than just the rate cuts Do you see those cuts as some sort of indicator that policy conditions will loosen across the board like for instance with regulation Yes I do I think that the PBOC is trying to send a very clear message that they are there and their supportive of the market They are cognizant of what's going on They're trying to spur demand across the spectrum You've had surprise cut earlier this week I guess made yesterday is not a surprise But you've had MLP and you've had LDR So you've got these two levels levers that they're pulling right now Triple our probably comes next I don't think the cuts were huge in nature but I think it's very symbolic of policy and where they're focused Certainly Brett it's easy to say that yeah it's a show of where the policy is going but those cuts work minute They're not going to move the dial shortly Does that tell us that perhaps it's not as bad as all that or that they're getting it all wrong that the PBOC No actually I think it's either I think in a sense I don't think that I think that things are I don't think they're dire but I think that they're worse than what the cuts the size of the cuts would symbolize I don't think they're getting it wrong in the sense I think that they've been very pragmatic The PBOC has become very adept at communicating with the market And I think that that's what they're doing right now From for a long period of time there was not great communication It's been much better And they're sending a signal I think those steps things up But I think that it's gradual It's the nature of how they move They don't normally move too fast too too large But you could have many of these cuts and I think we'll see it through certainly Olympics in NPC We know the PBOC Brett just takes orders from the party elites just like everybody else in China That's why I ask whether or not it's across the board But then you have to counter that with that Reuters report about the crackdown on tech The party denied it but then we got Xinhua came out and said that China will curb the influence of tech companies on governments This is more bad news for tech companies It certainly is I think that look the PBOC is of the G 20 the PBOC is the only Central Bank that's not separate from the government So clearly there are communication lines that are a lot tighter than in other global countries or other countries across the globe However we have seen those lines blurred in many different places So yes there is a symbol that's coming from not only the party but the PBOC But the other symbol as you referred to in tech is that these companies became too big and too powerful.

Iran and Other Enemies Are Watching the Biden Admin's Vulnerabilities

"I think Iran and all of our enemies are watching Ukraine right now and are drawing lessons about the infirmities of the Biden administration in response to the Ukraine attack. Do you believe that our enemies around the world are watching right now? What we do, Vis-à-vis Ukraine's vulnerability. They're absolutely watching. Just as they watched our ignominious surrender and botched withdrawal in Afghanistan. And then in some cases, in the case of the Chinese Communist Party, explicitly used it as a propaganda weapon in order to weaken the resolve of some of our allies and cause them to question America's willingness to fight and alongside them and defend their interests as well as our own interests. So absolutely they're watching. And as it pertains to Iran, something to watch, it really concerns me, if you follow the Iranian press, there's been some gloating coming out of the regime right now, which suggests to me that there may be an interim agreement half resuscitation of the JCPOA that we can expect soon, which would be an absolute disaster. Another tranche of trillions of billions of dollars in sequestered funds. And Wendy Sherman's going to blame Donald Trump for that.

Israel, US to Discuss Military Drills

"Hewitt from the headline in the times of Israel this morning. Israel U.S. to discuss military drills to prep for worst case Iran scenario. The story includes this line, a Wednesday report said the Israeli defense forces will hold a large scale exercise over the Mediterranean in the spring with dozens of aircraft simulating a strike against Iran's nuclear program. I'm joined by Michael Lauren now. You can follow him on a doctor or DR Michael orin on Twitter. Good morning, Michael. How are you? I'm good. I'm not optimistic that this administration will do anything serious about Iran, are you? I would doubt it. I would doubt it. Maybe I'd be pleasantly surprised. I mean, it's kind of clear that this administration doesn't have a military option. President, even president Obama used to say, all options are on the table, including a military option, the current administration says it talks fails. We'll look at other options, but they never said a military option. I agree. Yesterday, president Trump on this show said that Iran would have buckled on the first day of a new term for him because they were close to crumbling. Do you agree with that assessment? Well, I know for a fact that the major violations of the JCPOA did not occur under the Trump administration after 2018 when we pulled out of the Jaco. The major fire ending violations only began when it was clear that there would be a different administration at The White House. And that that administration was committed to going back to the JSON POA. And not seeking not basically trying to replace it with a much better deal. So the Iranians knew that they could ratchet up the pressure, and that the administration would basically keep on going after the volume. It's quite a spy that finally will be the Americans walked away from the table during the first time they've walked away from the table. We've had a situation where in this case the. Customer has been running after the merchant of the merchant running that's the customer. And running simply ratchet up the price every time. Did you see what they do

"Enrichment program in exchange for the lifting of many economic sanctions. As those sanctions came back into force, Iran got right back to work enriching uranium, edging ever closer to real weapons capability. In the meantime, the diplomacy hasn't gone anywhere. But after the first day of this week's negotiations, things were all smiles, and idiot, deputy secretary general of the EU's foreign service summed up the mood. And there is clearly a will of the Iranian delegation to engage in serious work and bring discipline back to life. So I feel I feel positive that we can be doing important things for the next weeks to come. There's a glimmer of hope there, but there's also still a long way to go. The first day of negotiations seemed to end on a positive note, which is actually pretty surprising. I mean, I think the mood going into these talks was pretty pessimistic. Roger mcshane is our Middle East editor. The administration of Joe Biden had thought it was close to restoring the JCPOA early this year, then that would change with the election of Abraham raisi, who's a hardliner. So, you know, I think people went into Vienna with pretty low expectations and surprisingly the first day has been rather positive. In what sense of what's what's being kicked around? Well, you're just seeing a lot of positive noises from people coming out of the top to people smiling, people saying, we've made some progress now lacuna is what that means. It's been one day of negotiations. And they're dealing with a lot of complicated stuff. I mean, you have a whole host of sanctions that America has heaped on Iran essentially cutting it off from the world economy. Iran wants those undone. And then you have the progress that Iran has made with its nuclear program. I mean, it's been doing things like testing events centrifuges hampering international inspections and most importantly increasing in stockpile of enriched uranium and well-being on the limit set in the original deal. And on top of that, it's just enriching that uranium to 60% purity. And that's a level that's usually only reached by countries that want to make bombs. So to put that on the perspective of the JCPOA, that deal was meant to keep Iran always at least a year away from what they called breakout. The point in where Iran had enough material for a bomb. Now it's somewhere between a few weeks and a few months away. And so what's actually being discussed in Vienna then just a return to the JPA as we understood it or something new altogether. Well, I mean, I think expectations are so low that America would be very happy to return to the JCPOA. Now, America is not directly involved in the talks there on the sidelines, but they're getting their message across via the Europeans. One way to look at a wrongs moves, it's sort of advancements in its nuclear program is as a way to gain leverage in these talks. And while you get some Iranian officials who say they're not averse to returning to the old deal, most are talking pretty tough, you know, they've demanded three main things for America. They wanted to admit wrongdoing in ditching the original deal. They wanted to immediately lift all sanctions on Iran. And they went to America to guarantee that any new agreement will last beyond Joe Biden's term. In other words, a future U.S. president of future Trump won't pull America out. This could all be busted. This could all be an attempt to drive a hard bargain in Vienna. But publicly Iranian officials have shown little interest in returning to the old deal or even conducting the kind of detailed negotiations that might produce a new one. So the fact that everyone walked out of the meeting today and was looking sounding very positive and, you know, that's pretty surprising. You've laid out what it is Iran would like from America who's it must be said not in the room. What is America's stance at this stage? Well, you know, the conditions laid out by Iran are impossible for America to meet. Start with the guarantee that the deal won't be ripped up by the next president. In order for that to happen, you need to turn the deal into a treaty, which would require approval of two thirds of the Senate, and that's just not going to happen. And neither is American and going to lift all of its sanctions on Iran because many of those sanctions have nothing to do with the nuclear program. They're related to Iran's sponsorship of terrorism. That's a non starter. But it sort of leaves the path forward unclear. Biden had hoped to simply sort of reenter the old deal before negotiating what he called a quote unquote longer and stronger deal. That also seems very unlikely at this point. And it's gotten to the point where America and its allies in much notably Israel. They're talking about plan B's, which is really just another word for sabotage and the tax on Iran's nuclear program. You've spoken extensively of what Iran wants and where that fits in with what America wants. What about the rest of the international community? They're being European powers, Britain, France, Germany, who are all signatories to the original deal they're working hard to get it restored, and they've tried to keep it alive all these years after America pulled out. They're really the ones doing the hard work in Vienna. Then you have China and Russia who are also seeing the Tories. They don't really have an interest in Iran gaining a nuclear weapon, but they probably don't mind watching America's squirm a bit. They have their own interest in the Middle East. Many of Iran's neighbors in the gulf. A lot of them oppose the original JCPOA. I think a lot of them have also now come around to it. But look, everyone knows that the real wild card in all this is Israel. It views Iran's nuclear program as an existential threat. And it says it's going to feel free to act no matter what happens in Vienna. For the past few years, it's been engaging in a shadow war with Iran. It's killed. It's nuclear scientists. You have Israeli officials saying they've developed weapons such as bunker busting bombs that could penetrate into their program, and then they would sort of obviate the need to rely on America to help out with any attacks. See, look, Israel is basically saying we can act, we can act alone, and we might act alone if things keep moving in the wrong direction. So the rhetoric kind of from all sides doesn't match all of those smiling faces coming out of the first day of talks. I mean, how to read what's going to happen for mean, I think before today, you would have thought that a deal was very unlikely or at least not an expensive deal. I think the best hope that a lot of people I was that some sort of interim deal could be reached, something that sort of froze Iran's nuclear program, froze its production of enriched uranium and America would ease some of its sanctions in return. And the idea was sort of you'd buy time for a broader negotiations. People sound positive today. Perhaps something more expansive is possible. But Joe Biden had hoped not only to jump back into the JCPOA but to negotiate what was often called a more for more deal. This is that longer and stronger deal. And going into Vienna, it was looking like a less for less dealers with this sort of highest hope you could have. There's also the separate question of whether the JCPOA is even worth restoring. And this is something that American officials have talked about. For one thing, parts of it expire in 2025, and the whole thing ends in 9 years time. Eventually, Iran's nuclear program will have made too many advances to safely return to the old deal, rum malley, America's chief negotiator on put it well when he says that you're not really dealing with a chronological clock.

"I know that this is something that's gotten a lot of attention in Israel has gotten next to none here in the United States. Adam credo reporting yesterday that U.S. Iran envoy Robert malley, whose name is very familiar to those of us who follow these things, says that the Biden administration is preparing for, quote, a world where Iran doesn't have constraints on its nuclear program. Comments that show how little progress has been made in negotiation with Tehran regarding a return to the JCPOA the 2015 Barack Obama ran deal. Doctor Oren, I mean, if that deal had remained in place, we'd still be dealing with in Iran didn't have any constraints on its nuclear weapons program. I mean, I think that that's one thing that should be said right off the bat. That deal wasn't going to prevent Iran from creating nuclear weapons. It only it only had a ten year pause in it, maybe. And that's only if you believed Iran was complying with it. Yes, that's true. It was ultimately going to his line was ultimately going to have an unlimited nuclear program. The big difference was that while it restrained itself somewhat, and some aspects of the program, just on the nuclear enrichment, not a missile development, not on the development of advanced centrifuges, not on developer warheads, didn't do anything about any of that. But when I was going to get paid a 100 billions of dollars that it wasn't going to spend on schools and hospitals, you can believe that. I think the major thing that rob valley is saying, believe it or not is the truth and the truth that has been around for a long time. I've been talking about on these really news. And that is the United States is willing to coexist with an Iran that has threshold capacity. I mean, the ability is created a bomb within a matter of weeks, because you've been a matter of days. Among the professionals, if referred to as Japan like capabilities, there's Japan has that capability, but of course, you can't threaten to wipe anybody off the map or is not supporting financial payers. Big difference. America, that's what's important Biden or other Americans as they say, you know, Iran will never get a bomb on our watch. Yeah, but do they have the ability to make one real quickly? So America may be just for the threshold capacity law. If you can like people honestly will, but as you can simply can, every single war with Hamas, Iran can have threatened to break it out, and this could be a huge constraint on our ability to defend ourselves. And I definitely won't even get a bomb. It won't be satisfied with threshold capacity. Well, doctor ordon, I mean, the problem here is multi fold, really. First off, Iran's IRGC having a nuclear weapons is one concern. But the bigger concern I think, especially for Israel is that Hezbollah and Hamas will get nuclear weapons clandestinely and deploy them without Iranian fingerprints on them. And I mean, there are literally on your doorstep, Iran is at least some distance away. That's, I think the biggest concern am I correct about that? You are correct. So Iran can hit the threshold capacity. Maybe it doesn't break out. But it could pass on nuclear technologies to its proxies to his ball of the Hamas. They could develop for what we know tactical nuclear weapons. And right on our order. In reality, well, we don't have a nuclear weapon. These guys, hey, we don't have anything to do with these guys. And that was just real with an existential threat. So Iran having a threshold capacity is just intolerable for this country. And it's interesting yesterday, the foreign minister Europeans met with 20 blank in the Secretary of State. And he was up front about it because we will not let Iran have a threshold for that to the English line. Quite say that. He said that all Washington could be on the table. He did not repeat what signal and you would also say was that all optimism. Administration does not say that anymore. And he's actually pressed by a journalist blinking was to save the options include a military option. He does the question. Well, that doesn't surprise me. What's the debate been Israel on this? Clearly, the American media is not doing a great job of covering this particular development, but in Israel, I know they're very concerned. What's the debate been like there about what the options are? It's not even a debate that the truth is really focused on other things. I'm running for being the head of the Jewish agency, the largest Jewish philanthropy in the world. That is from page news every day. No one has wants to be think about the Iranian issue. Press conference yesterday. I thought it was hugely significant. Hugely significant. Maybe it's just too awful to contemplate. But as the winter comes and the skies cloud up in our air force can operate at the same set of freedom as one during the summer in the spring and Iran reaches military grade in Richmond. Their ability to break out while the world is occupied with something else, maybe there'll be a storm somewhere, maybe they'll be an earthquake. And then you wake up from morning, Iran is a nuclear power. It is just like that. That's how the North Koreans even have the Indians. And but we're up. How was it? Completely intolerable situation. And this was the reason why we were applying the sanctions on one of the reasons why we were playing the sanctions on Iran that we were Robert malley just really briefly, we only got a couple of seconds left Robert melly was saying that he would have dropped all the sanctions. Doctor Oren, I got ten seconds to let you respond to that. Yeah, of course. I think we'll do anything possible to get that agreement back. Knowing that in the end, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. Doctor Michael oran, thank you so much for joining us. We're going to stay tuned on that story, believe me..

I think the major thing that rob valley is saying, believe it or not is the truth and the truth that has been around for a long time. I've been talking about on these really news. And that is the United States is willing to coexist with an Iran that has threshold capacity. I mean, the ability is created a bomb within a matter of weeks, because you've been a matter of days.

"Saw me and we begin with what appears to be a case of crisis deferred rather than crisis defused after the UN's nuclear watchdog, the A Struck a deal with the new government in Tehran over the monitoring of Iran's nuclear sites. Iran's refusal to allow access to surveillance equipment had brought efforts to revive the international nuclear agreement. To the brink of rupture. The Iranians have now agreed to allow U. N inspectors to service the monitoring devices. Iran's compliance with the terms of the 2015 deal that was abandoned by President Trump. Is key to persuading the Biden administration to rejoin it and drop the sanctions that were subsequently imposed or re imposed on Tehran. There has been a growing sense of urgency to the nuclear talks after Iran broke the deals, uranium enrichment limits, and experts have suggested that the country under its new ultra conservative leader, Ebrahim Raisi, Maybe getting close to having enough material for a bomb. After his lightning visit to the Iranian capital, the head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, acknowledged that he had not healed any wounds but had applied some diplomatic sticking plaster. This is not a permanent solution. Peace has always being seen for me, at least as a stopped up. As a measure to allow time for diplomacy. Without us losing the basic information and data, uh, that we need. There is a new administration and administration that has clear views. So I asked Director general need to sit down with them. Expect exposed the problems and discuss them. I am glad to note that they have agreed that this is the way to go. I believe that there is a realization That this is a situation that needs to be preserved to give space for diplomacy so that wider solutions can be reached in the short term. This agreement could see off a censure motion for Iran at the I A E a meeting in Vienna this week. Delta Side Marandi, professor at Tehran University. Welcome today's development. It is a positive sign. We still have to see what happens in Vienna. I think it's not in the interests of the Europeans to escalate the situation because they know quite well that it was the United States that brought us to this point. So we have to see if the meeting in Vienna passes off well and then if that happens, then we have to see if the United States is willing to change its position and fully implement the nuclear deal. The Iranian Um so Are quite prepared to fully implement the jcpoa and have the deal with sword. But the problem is that the United States wants to make changes to the deal, and they want to keep certain sanctions in place that are violation of the spirit of the deal. So the Iranians are saying that's not acceptable. It's either the full implementation of the judgeship Oh A or no implementation of the J C P A The Jcpoa, of course, the acronym for the Nuclear Deal. Will someone who doesn't need to be reminded of that is joining us now on the line. There's some. We talked about Iran frequently on the program. Mark Fitzpatrick, associate fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Welcome to news hour. And would you agree with Mr Grassi that this is a temporary solution? Oh, exactly. And I think you put it very well. A crisis differed, not diffused. So, um, does this do enough then to stop this censure motion going through? Oh, yes, I think for the time being this is enough to, uh, I mean, diplomats were involved in arranging grosses visit to Tehran and they knew that if he went there, he would get some temporary deal that would allow them. Not to press forward with a censure motion. So for the time being, this preserves the possibility that diplomacy can still resolve the crisis. So what's the bigger picture here? Where does this leave the efforts to try and revive the J C P O A. Right. Well, there's two sets of issues so but just on this one of reviving the jcpoa a, uh I agree in part with your guest you had from Tehran. Dr. Marandi, Um, when he talked about restoring the you know, the full JCP away, the United States is certainly ready to do that. Uh, there's a couple of sticking points. Though one Iran wants to do more than restore the jcpoa. They want the United States to remove all other sanctions that President Trump imposed that have nothing to do with the jcpoa and that would not impeded. But one thing Washington has been asking would go beyond the J C. P A. And that's this request to, uh, also discussed other issues. And this is one where Washington may have to show some flexibility. If Iran shows flexibility on the number of sanctions that have to be lifted, and then a couple things about sequencing and, um, in compensation. The fact that they have allowed the inspectors to service these monitoring devices. Does that suggest that this new government is then capable and willing to be flexible? I would say it shows this new government is diplomatically savvy that they realized that they had to do something to avoid censure because that would be the first step. In a series of resolutions that would find them again in New York, and they waited until the last minute and they employed brinksmanship very well making threats and then doing just enough to avoid the censure. So, um, you know, this is a skillful government, but flexibility. I haven't seen that yet. They still haven't shown any flexibility. In the demands that the supreme leader was making, you know they could have solved this back in the spring any time former foreign Minister Javad Zarif in his report to the parliament on July, 12th detailed all the compromises the United States had made and said, You know, Iran should just go ahead and and and do the deal. So what does that suggest to you that they're playing for time that they are building up their capability and and what stringing the international community along? Well, yeah, I think they think that by building up their their nuclear capability that they're they're gaining leverage that you know the pressure is on the United States and the Europeans to make further concessions in order to avoid Iran getting closer and closer to being able to produce a nuclear weapon. The problem is that Iran is over playing its hand because as they get closer to this capability, uh, you know they're the United States and and and in Israel will be thinking of other options to stop it. Uh, Israel is already laying out what it calls a strategy of 1000 cuts And meanwhile, the benefits of the deal are decreasing because Iran's Uh, you know, it's going beyond the limits of the deal gives it knowledge that cannot be undone. So I don't know that we ever can get back to the benefits of the deal as they were first agreed in 2015. Can there be some benefits, but surely without them? There's going to be no point in trying to restore the deal. Yeah, that's that's the thing. There will be some benefits. Certainly they won't be all of the benefits of the 2015. And then you know the United States and its partners will have to decide. Are the benefits sufficient? I think they are, you know, for, for example, there's this issue of trying to get back to having a 12 month. Breakout period. That's the amount of time Iran theoretically would take to be able to produce a weapons worth of highly enriched uranium 12 months as an arbitrary figure. 11 months would be just as good 10 months would be okay. And but politically, it would be very hard for for Biden to walk back from what had been Obama's 12 Month period. Still, I think there's a possibility for flexibility there. An optimistic note to end on Mark Fitzpatrick, associate fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Thanks very much..

"So the obama people kept harping on the yearlong breakout. And that just struck me as like the dumbest reason to to sign the cpa but like whatever it worked and all the criticisms of it like it paves the way for ron to build a bomb. Which just like totally nonsensical right. It imposes limits and so it just from From a subject matter expert perspective it is baffling to me that we got so close to getting it right given how just completely detached from reality our discourse about this agreement has been so you know like i should. We really be surprised that this is all collapsing like a house of cards. I mean no no no. I don't think we should perhaps we. I mean looking back and being self critical. We were overly optimistic about that. Brief window before run in elections in our ability to organize and get moving really fast. You know i mean it would have been very simple. I mean the president just had to stand up and say i'm reentering the deal. I am prepared to waive some sanctions. We're gonna work out a time. Line in which we will waive all of the sanctions to coming back into compliance in a in a manner that's consistent with the iranians coming back into compliance to.

"Iran was however many months away from a bomb for many many years during the iran nuclear crisis right and and so the idea that you would need one year exactly to be able to respond is just totally arbitrary. Right it doesn't take a year to bomb them and honestly a year as as we have seen not enough time for diplomatic effort so they just picked it because it was like around number. But it's not. It doesn't correspond anything. But edit deeper level. I think that makes me crazy is how absurd is the breakout scenario right because these facilities even without the jcp away are still under. I eight yay safeguards and so the thinking of the the breakout crowd is that the iranians are going to publicly visibly. Either show the a that they are reconfiguring the cascades to build bombs or throw the i eight yay out either way. They're essentially saying we are building a bomb and that they are going to proceed to go about that activity in these well known open facilities that would immediately be the subject of attack. you know. it's just it's crazy to me that the supreme leader would be like. Hey i am going to build a bomb. I am going to do it here. You've got a year or six months to get your stuff together. Go for it like that is not what they are going to do. Right with they're going to do is what they did. Which is that. They will attempt to build a facility in secret. Don't they didn't. They didn't declare the colli electric facility outside of tehran. They didn't well the they. They avoided having to declare the natanz facility. Although i don't believe they ever would have declared it if it had not revealed They did not intend. I think to declare the facility at qom. The photo facility. You know if they do this they're going to try to do it in secret. And so you know as we have said i know you have said i have said it..

"Since it became clear the deal would not be struck before. Iran's election that time with the us's original goal but significant sticking points remained like the scope of sanctions relief with the us allies arguing that they can only lift sanctions connected to the nuclear deal not penalties associated with human rights abuses conventional weapons violations or other issues. The story goes on. You can read it. But i think you know the thing that hints at is the stuff that we're talking about sanctions relief but also this reference to breakout time. So i think there's two issues at play now. I know you're quoted in the piece. Jeffrey so You may have heard some of this from the reporters but like just reading between the lines. When i read that story is i think there's two there's there's there's three into related things one. Is that in response to the american withdrawal. The iranians have been upping their own course of pressure one of which is that. Some of the supplements on on enriched uranium both in purity and the amount that they have stored. They have done away with right. And so that breakout. Time has gone down below a year. The other is that some of these more advanced centrifuges with the which the jcp oa had some restrictions on but one of which would sunset were starting to come up on that first sunset right so you could foresee or imagine a place where the us. Iran comeback into compliance right. Let's say in a couple of months close to twenty twenty two and then within a year the first sunset comes along right. And then iran drops again below that fictional or at least notional one year breakout time by virtue of its advancements in centrifuges and some of the terms of the jcp away so that political goal all of a sudden starts rear. Its head is that the. Jcp away isn't really blocking runs program. That's how i think about it.

"And then we would see about coming back into compliance ourself and that seemed to be all backstopped with this abso being lutely insane thought that with iranian presidential election coming up. You wouldn't wanna wait. I mean you wouldn't want to do anything early. You would want to wait for it because you might get somehow like a better deal or more durable deal which you know was so frustrating. Because i am now old enough. That i remember when the europeans didn't like negotiating with rohani when he was the negotiator in two thousand five and they decided that you know well. There was an election coming up. So why hurry. We should just wait. And then they got almodena. John and nothing happened for a decade. So you know. When with the biden people were sort of making this claim that like well. You know you might want to wait and see you know good things could happen. It was like oh. It is totally unforeseeable. This could go sideways unless you were alive in two thousand five case it's totally foreseeable because it's exactly what happened. Yeah i would say in terms of like government time. They moved quickly. But i think that they could have moved faster. If was made a higher priority or if we had gotten out of her own way about being cautious. Because i do think that the original caution about just diving headfirst back into this. In addition to staffing problems and all of that goes on was the political surrounding it right. It wasn't just about policy. It was about the politics of looking weak on iran. As you take back over. yeah. I think that's right. I think the people who were opposed to moving forcefully to get back in the deal where at least just moving i They tended to view the the they tended to view the jcp oa as a reward. We're going to give to iran and iran's behavior would need to warrant it which of course like the most fucked up way to look at a diplomatic agree but pastas. They saw the sanctions relief. It was it was the sanctions for. It's the corner go ahead. I know. I know it's just. It's just so frustrating because it just it's just such a childish stupid way of looking the world and yet it's so common. So i i guess i can't i mean maybe it's me who's bizarre but it's such a dumb way of looking at the world. But they were so focused on that idea that it took them a while to it. Took other people awhile to elevate that up to biden's level when it does look like when it got elevated biden's level he was like no no no we we like. We campaigned on getting back. In this thing. We want to get back in this thing..

"In the, uh And the Iranians as a new president, and you know, and believe me, the Supreme leader calls all the shots there, but certainly that leader himself were likely attempt still. Carry that out and unlikely to be done before. The Jcpoa deal is signed. I don't believe they want to do anything to To turn the United States off of, I think, reentering the fundamentally flawed deal and doing it all over again as we're about to do, right. I mean, I know that the President Biden wants to rejoin the Iranian nuclear deal. Do you think that they have been testing? President Biden's resolved with these drone attacks going after Americans or those who are linked to U. S forces in Iraq. I don't think it has so much to do with President Biden to be Frank, I think they sort of have a general sense of who Biden is because he was so much a part. You know the Obama administration and he was the one that recommended the troops leave Iraq in 2011. And he was the envoy to Iraq for the president than President. Obama accepted that. A decision that they likely came to regret because we got the barbaric Isis and conducted hundreds of attacks and killed thousands of thousands of people as a result of that. I think it really is the pattern that they want the United States out. Of the Middle East, and they certainly wanted out of Iraq. The United States is leaving. Afghanistan, which is on their eastern border, and as far as they're concerned, that is a major political victory for them, and they want the same result. In Iraq, and that's why this pattern is continue. This pattern was going on during the Trump administration, admittedly less Because I think they frankly feared President Trump more But it is continuing in the buying administration. I don't think it's as much of a test about it is just that. Keep the pressure up. On the Iraqi politicians to eventually affect the United States from Iraq. Well, there were plenty in Iraq who wanted the US to leave after the Sulamani attack in early 2020. There was even a non binding resolution that passed the Iraq parliament calling for foreign troops to leave the country. Obviously, we haven't Do you see a day in which President Biden says, you know enough. Let's get out of Iraq as well. I do sadly, because he recommended that once before, and he's just done it in Afghanistan, So I think you know we are on the side that that's probably where he's coming from. Rough instead at interesting that you mentioned that parliamentary resolution and, uh, a lot of you brought that up. Many people didn't realize it existed, but they had a provision in there. They left the decision up to the prime minister. They had a political obligation for the United States sleeve that was their majority vote. But they left the final decision up to the prime minister, and his decision is At least for the time being. You know, he wants the United States troops there and the reason he wants and there Is the counterbalance, Give him political strength dealing with the Iranians who are attempting to undermine his government and encroach on it, you know, severely Lastly, You mentioned that we may have to do another. Do you think a third and larger and possibly more deadly strike aimed at Iran backed militia could be coming soon? I think if, uh it will probably take us a number of weeks to see if this strike Accomplishes what it's intended to do, but my gut feel is this just looking at it and getting a sense of it.

"Where is the envoys would die off there were many openings and and the Obama administration toward the end of its tenure export and talked about some of those openings with with Iran's whether it would be counter narcotics whether it be some kind of scientific exchange for their things you can do to sort of bring them back into the international fall there was never any illusions their service and foster dress and ballistic missile problem or the proxy problems those wrongly seen as as right down the road former Assistant Secretary of state in the Obama administration and Patterson thank on the JCPOA experience because I think it actually has some valuable lessons for the passport I think we committed mistakes both before and after the JCPOA before in the sense that we started the secret inquisitions in Amman which are critical to the success of the nuclear deal later on but I think that already burned the bridges to the Gulf countries and also to Israel to certain extent because they thought we were trying to deal with the Iranians behind their back and this is my definition going to come at the expense of the values of the international crisis group so now we have tried different scenarios of trying to incite or encourage the Gulf countries to negotiate with Iran on their own or to negotiate with Iran behind their back or to stop them from negotiating with Iran or if he has anything wrong which I think is the case right now and and I think the lesson of the JCPOA is that these two processes should happen in parallel you can't have a separate arms control negotiations and a discussion about the region and in subsequent steps but rather it these things have to happen in parallel because any narrow transactions with Iran will not survive in the context of the broader enmity that exists and second I think after the security we also committed the mistake in order to eliminate the concerns of the Gulf countries what did we do we sold them.
