S. of the fact that Iran is pulling out of its commitments under the nuclear deal it's it's going back to Rick enriching uranium the turn of public opinion in Iraq a wait until very recently the Iraqis were turning quite negative towards Iran now the paving towards being on one in the U. S. to get out of the Iraqi parliament had a symbolic vote to tell the United States to go home so you know it's definitely a mixed bag whether this kind of strategy works right well and it's the geopolitical Sir it's also geo economic story in many ways this complicate so many things when we think about trade when we think about just the relationships between all these countries this is a crucial economic part of the world well for sure now trump would argue and he did argue in his address to the nation that the US is self sufficient in oil now will close to it we was still some imports of oil but that does not mean that the oil market does not matter matters for all the other countries that are buying oil in the United States remains sort of the world's policeman to some degree and so it's a bad thing if suddenly the state of war Moses block for example by Iran and oil can't get out what is interesting and you really do look into this whole idea of the escalation strategy you know you're right in the store that trump the president trump is running into a dilemma that we've seen other US presidents face how to fight a foe who pokes and prods using asymmetric warfare right this isn't your typical flow that is fascinating and you go back to Richard Nixon in world in the Vietnam War nineteen seventy that was when the US is trying to hi what to do whether they should go after after the Viet Cong bases in Cambodia which it did expanding the war in raging US peace activist and what next instead of the time was he did what he was to become a pitiful helpless giant that expression has gained currency would still gets used today trump I identically does not want the US to be a pitiful helpless giant right it's also interesting to an end Peter you've written about this before you write about it again this is the United States in a different position in a very different world and that also contributes to this asymmetry that we're seeing there's not a lot of precedent for the U. S. acting in this way in a world that is like this well the you know trump is not your typical president for better or worse the there are people who love this kind of strategy they say it's about time the United States stopped using treating other countries with kid gloves and like hit hard and I talk to people who think that this could work it could create and have a deterrent effect on further Iranian aggression so I in the jury's out on this and that's Peter Corey our economics editor taking a little bit of a political bent this week it was the leader the politics section and as a reminder candidly and we talked about this with Peter that politics and economics inextricably linked in many ways especially because so much of the interest in the Middle East is ultimately economic oil be it just sort of economic strategy in many ways well I really gets to Jason bottom line that the president president trump has positioned his moves against Iran as an attempt to really scared into a more submissive stance toward the United States but the result is it could possibly have the opposite effect and that's the game that we're playing right now or the United States is and the administration is and I also think what's interesting about this is we I always look back to history for precedent history for comparisons and yet if there's one thing we have learned during the trump administration is that history past performance as they say on Wall Street is not a guarantee of future performance and you do just wonder whether this time really is different and the other thing I just want to get to is and I think we have talked increasingly about the stories in the magazine about the United States as a global player kind of backing off from the global stage and you do wonder if ultimately US forces are out of the area out of a rack in this case what kind of power vacuum is left and who feels that if the United States is not there in some form or another all right you're listening to Bloomberg businessweek coming up we.

"Midterms that his party, the democrat party only demanded one thing from him. And that was hate and that they offered nothing back in the way of policies. And and so we have some funny Beato Rourke audio for you this morning where he was at a gathering of college students, I guess in state college, Pennsylvania, and he was asked his first salient question by anyone as a presidential candidate. And it was by a random college student rather than by any of the fluffer that follow him around in his draft worshiping, his image and his shadow. And and his it was a great question from the student presumably a student and an idiot answer from from this, Meatloaf, that is apparently a democrat presidential candidate his name has veto f- Rourke, and he he married the only daughter of the Texas billionaire, which is smart, I guess always hasn't done everything stupid laid. But but this guy is is not the sharpest ball been the constellation. If you know what I mean, he is a double mixed metaphor. He is not a sharp guy. He doesn't he doesn't have much count from the except for the news media. The news media wants to have sex with them collectively of conservative a group grope massive or gastric thing that the news media would like to have this is how they view their political wannabe leaders. But we were mocking at earlier today. Obama was a guy who could never get elected when he started and Donald Trump was a guy who can. Never get elected when he started. So you just don't know where we're going to end up at this point. But but Dougie, I, you know, Dougie's he used all kinds of interesting words brainwashing. Dougie used talking about his party. Brainwashing. Him and and all of the many faithful the hate that has demanded on the part of your average rank and file democrat and the character assassination, and he's just talking about the Chinese, and if he's just an example of one of many people out there, and usually when somebody calls into a radio show, and and says the kind of things that you just said he represents a whole lot of people who aren't calling in to radio shows, you can take that to the Bank as Baretta used to say. Robert Blake then he murdered his wife. Remember that? And he got away with it because he was TV Cup. So he knew all the stuff and he got him murdered his wife got to wear them. How to murder your wife? That's like that. Now, Michael peercy sent me a couple of things yesterday that I found to be quite interesting. The Irish prime minister was in town. What what was it a week ago or oh, yeah, I tried. He was in for Pettis day. And so it's just last week at the the Irish prime minister and everybody wore green ties and the Irish prime minister is a gay, man. He's a sexual men, and he has a partner who is a man, and I don't know if they have same sex marriage in Ireland or not, but they're apparently not married, they call partner, the Irish prime minister's name is Leo varadkar varadkar, I'm going to go with varadkar. I didn't pay a lot of attention to his visit. I noticed that they were at the White House and that was about it. But the Irish later Leo varadkar visiting Washington visited with President Trump everybody at green ties, he went over to the vice president's residence for a what did they have lunch or something the veeps residents and. The news media. Of course, they have this narrative issued to them by the Democratic Party that Mike Pence is homophobic. This is his has had irrational fear of gay people, and it's a misnomer, but they like to use it anyway, and that he's anti gay anti LGBT. And and in this neighborhood where the radio station is where I'm broadcasting from right now, it is roughly the neighborhood approximately the neighborhood where then vice president elect Mike Pence stayed during the transition and lots of dutiful Democrats in the neighborhood, very left. He never had multi-million dollar houses. Littering the landscape and lots of lefties they put up their rainbow flags all over the neighborhood. You don't see a lot of American flags, but there are rainbow flags front doorsteps and in front of houses all over this part of the city of Washington, and it was orchestrated by lefties. They're like centipedes as a protest against Mike Pence because he's so anti. Gay ask any liberal why he's anti gay and that they can't explain it to you. Because it's just a party issued thing as Dougie was saying, they just tell you to hate people. They just want you to hate a lot to be angry about everything all the time, which is going to be exhausting for Democrats over the course of years, it is physically fatiguing to the angry all the time. And I think liberals are finding this out the old fashioned way. But Mike Pence says never done anything. That's particularly anti-gay or said anything is particularly anti-gay. He is a Christian and mainstream Christian and liberals hate that. We know, but Mike Pence invited the Irish prime Minister, Leo varadkar over to the over to the White House or the to the vice president's residence rather for a meal when they had met some time ago, and he he had invited the prime minister and his partner to come to the vice president's residence where he currently lives because he's vice president. And then it was very gracious invitation. And the Irish prime minister graciously accepted that invitation came with his his partner who has man to the vice president's residence to enjoy a nice meal with the vice president and to talk about various things, I'm sure that they have a great deal in common. And there's a lot to talk about. Now, the headlines that resulted from this where of course, anti Mike Pence headlines because that's our news media. There are shockingly corrupt and dishonest, and then I got Hollywood people because of the ven diagram, the the melding of the democrat party of the entertainment industry and the American news media, that's really the real democrat party and on some level. It's the real deep state also Campbell Harris, for example was on Jimmy Kimmel last night because they're all political shows. We looked at coal bears lineup for the week this week and four. Nights out of five dad's scheduled democrat, political operatives apparatchik, call bear is just a pure political dog and pony show for the left is a fake Catholic and a couple of other things, but back to Mike Pence here Alicia Milano, who is I think a leader of the Democratic Party isn't she tweeted out a picture of Mike Pence, greeting the Irish prime minister and his partner who has a man at the vice president's residence and the picture was put out by the vice president's office has press office and Alicia Milano tweeted the photo onset plays enjoy Irish prime Minister, Leo harder, car varadkar, bringing his boyfriend to meet Mike Pence, and this is supposed to be like. I I don't know in his face or or something like that and say because he's a homophobe. This is the thing that they pedal and the the the news media published headlines like Ireland's leader shows up with his boyfriend, Mike Pence's house and liberals are supposed to snicker at that. You see because they know that he's anti gay even though they can't explain why he's anti-gay the Washington Post. Vice president Pence host the Irish prime minister and his gay partner for breakfast. It's breakfast and. And that's now does the Irish prime minister going around saying go around saying, I'm gay, and this is my gay partner, and we're having breakfast. I mean, no he just acts like a normal person. But the American news media doesn't and then of course, they had lines that followed where boom boom, boom, boom, boom all over the place all anti Mike Pence. Of course, Irish prime minister boyfriend Pence Irish prime minister, brought his boyfriend to meet Mike Pence. Now, this really you guys are acting like the homophobes just by the way, you're not acting like normal people where where you're accepting of everybody, you're being vicious, little homophobic creeps. And honestly, this sounds more like homophobia than anything. Mike Pence has ever set Irish prime ministers boyfriends Pence, and they've got it all over the headlines. Leo varadkar brings boyfriend to meet Mike Pence, and it's like oh Irish prime minister shows up with. With gay boyfriend shows up like he's surprised Mike Pence. Oh, by the way, he's not on the list. But here's my boyfriend because I'm gay and you're anti gay and this is going to be in your face. Of course, there was nothing of the kind because in this becomes clear in a moment. I prime minister brings partner Irish prime minister shows up with gay partner. Now. I mean, honestly, I thought you guys were supposed to be over this that you are. So you are so beyond this and so above this. And then the the Irish prime minister sent out a tweet also with a picture of himself with with his boyfriend and Mike Pence and. And the Irish prime minister tweeted out vice President Mike Pence invited me and match to his home at the naval observatory this morning, it's great to be back here for a really warm reception. See Mike Pence invited the prime minister and his boyfriend the prime minister calls him causing Matt that's what he calls him. And and the news media is all over this because they think it's just it's the false narrative, and they continue to peddle the false narrative. It's quite clear that the vice president graciously invited the gay prime minister. Who cares if he's gay just yet over yourself? Can you just get over yourself? Your pathetic, do you realize how sad and pathetic. You people are honestly try being a grownup for about five minutes. And then you'll know what it's like to be a Republican. And maybe it might take a little more time than that conservative where you're just you just act like a normal people. Yeah. There are gay people in the world. Yeah. Okay. Everybody's over it except you. I don't know. What's wrong with you people? But everybody's over it. The Irish prime minister is gay. He's a man that means that his partner is a man to. Yeah. Everybody gets that everybody understands that you know, that he doesn't he doesn't feel the need to have a parade from self. Everything's fine. The Irish people Catholics mostly if I understand this correctly voted for him to become a prime minister. And I just you know, you guys really need to get over yourself. Your your your emotional train wrecks each and every one of you and you should seek therapy. Because we're not the problem. You are we're fine. You're messed up. I kind of check myself there for just a second. You guys are are trainwreck. You're you're an emotional mess. And you're kinda sad at this point. You really honestly are kind of sad and pathetic at this point. And what this is pass. This is what passes for the highest level of journalism. Not just in America. But in western civilization and arguably the world this is the highest level of journalists the top echelons of journalism anywhere in the world to be found in Washington, New York, the American news media, and there are just a just a sad wretched pathetic group of losers who wine and cry and played victim and accused people have ridiculous things and divide and polarize the country because there's such political hacks. And with that we have some of that Ted Koppel stuff. I think don't we Ted Koppel? Now, this is remarkable for a number of reasons because this is an event that took place in Washington DC. Speaking of the press where Ted Koppel was invited to ten day conference at the Carnegie Endowment. Ted Koppel is a life long member of the American news media, therefore, he's a democrat therefore, he's a liberal. But he's not I assume completely out of his mind like the modern day liberal. I think he's. More of an old school democrat. And he's a guy that has a journalist most people can muster some respect for right? And it turns out that it was on March seventh that he went to this event attended this event and said these things in a room full of news media people and nobody reported, and I mean, nobody in the news media reported anywhere on what Ted Koppel had said. And I just I find it. Absolutely amazing. That not amazing just appalling that Ted Koppel one of the last of the Cronkite generation of journalists Nightline, da da da da day for forty four all of that good stuff. Ted Koppel says it's about the news media and the news media. They fold their hands clutched their purses tightly against their ribs. And that's just the men and they slink out of the room. And they say, well, we just won't mention what coupled said about us here today, we're talking. Organizations. Notion. Most of us worker. Absolutely. So. Ooh. From. Themselves to. Larry's estan seven even resist Ted Koppel.

Hello. I'm Caroline Wyatt. And welcome back to the well this week coming up. We look political turmoil in Venezuela Zimbabwe, France, but I the political turmoil here in Britain where Prime Minister Theresa may suffered the greatest parliamentary defeat in modern history. When her Brexit deal was rejected by two hundred thirty votes. It indicated a UK parliament as well as people split not along party lines, but into many different camps all in vehement disagreement of whether the UK should stay in the European Union leave on Mrs Maes terms. Plus, you a better deal. If there is one crush out with no deal at all or have a second referendum. This is at least one of out of confidence the following day. But given the scale of her earlier defeat that seemed a hollow victory in the end, many Brits resolved simply the half a Cup of tea in the hope that in the words of that great dickens character mister Mukuba something with. Turn up. But what could that be? And how serious is the deadlock, and what might unlock it? I put those questions to our panel of expert correspondence, Adam Fleming in Brussels. Andrew Walker economics. Correspondent rob Watson, our political correspondent, I asked rob. I is that anyway, she can get agreement inside outside her party to push a deal through. I guess the answer your question. Carolina is that it's possible. But if it was easy it would have been done by now, and it's worth remembering at the Reese of this crisis. And let's state again for the sake of any doubt that Britain is in the most profound political crisis since the second World War at the root of it is the fact that Britain's politicians simply cannot agree on what to do about the result of the referendum in twenty sixteen. It's a sort of simple basic an excess. And of course, the other thing the root of this crisis is the sort of visceral division within the governing conservative party over. What to do about Europe? It's been there for about forty years. It's what led to the referendum. And it's why now. Having some would say foolishly attempted to get Brexit salted as a conservative only project. Theresa May as now trying to make it a cross party project and any hope that might succeed. I think it'll be immensely difficult for three reasons. Firstly as personalities threes has many qualities, but the idea of charming people who have different points of view or come from different. Parties is probably not one of them. Secondly because in order to get across party agreement. She would have to soften Brexit. And that would almost certainly lead to a split in her conservative party will again, it's worth remembering what has been driving her along these last couple of years, it's been this sort of hope, and it would seem to me a vain hope of keeping the conservative party together. And then the third thing, of course, is that British politics are immensely tribal, and the idea that these other party leaders are going to come particularly Jeremy Corbyn from the labor party the idea he's gonna come to the rescue all their games comes to the rescue of someone who they see as. As a sort of weak and desperate rival. It seems to me as rather unlikely. Uttam you're in Brussels. The is apparently making preparations at least for article fifty to be extended were the UK requested. How dismayed a Europe's leaders by what they see happening in UK politics at the moment. I think preparations for extending article fifty in delaying Brexit, maybe putting it too strongly is definitely being talked about it speculated about and people are thinking about it. But I think actually it's not as far as properly laying the groundwork to make it happen yet. And of course, it would only happen. The you says the UK requested it, and it is absolutely not British government policy to delay Brexit from the infamous day to the twenty ninth of March twenty nineteen in terms of dismay again, that's quite the right word. There was surprise certainly amongst the EU officials. I was watching meaningful vote with the audibly gasped when the size of the defeat became clear. The EU knew it was coming though. And so they had time to write their scripts for their. Response, and it was a scripts because then it got leaks to me as often happens in the year. And the script was this is a British problem. We regret that you voted this deal done is the only deal on the table. Get your house in order and come back to us with a plan that you think will get through parliament. That's where the EU has stayed since many of the conservative party's fears over the future deal with Europe involve the so-called backstop for the island of Ireland to prevent new border checks being necessary between the north which is part of the United Kingdom south an independent country, which will remain part of the EU many worried that those checks or something that could bring about a return to the battle days of violence. His Emma Vardi in Belfast. There was apprehension on both sides of the Irish border leading up to the vote. Now, a continuing state of uncertainty hangs over the island of Ireland all the more heavily in Westminster and no deal. Brexit is the outcome. No one wants. And the odds are against it happening that talked to people. Around the Irish border, and that counts for little many Irish businesses rely on the UK market for buying and selling a variety of goods and particularly food. If tariffs were imposed overnight it could threaten the livelihood of people on both sides of the border. The Irish prime Minister, Leo varadkar has said no deal. Preparations are no longer contingency plans. They're now being implemented with measures being taken on key matters such as safeguarding the supply of medicines. Plenty of companies are doing the same changing supply routes putting contracts on hold and posing new investment in Northern Ireland. The D U P were opposed to Theresa May's deal.
