"A 97 in San Fernando, 84 degrees and hunting to beach at 107 This's connects in depth and Mike Simpson and I'm Charles Feldman. The Gulf Arab states have never recognized Israel's right to exist from the time the Jewish state came into being in 1949. Even after Israel attack a struck deals to normalize relations with Jordan and Egypt. The countries around the Persian Gulf would not budge well today that's changed in dramatic fashion. Israel and the United Arab Emirates agreed to establish diplomatic ties. And take some steps toward broader Middle East peace, so we will go in depth, President Trump said. The quiet part out loud today he's denying requests to boost funding for the postal Service, he says. To slow down the ability to count mail in ballots this November. There's pretty strong evidence from the Apache tribal reservation in Arizona that contacts tracing Khun Save lives will look at whether lessons learned there can be applied to the rest of us. In terms of Cove. It growing fears and warnings about the flu season combined with covert outbreaks. But could we actually be set up to have a mild flu season and Hollywood blockbusters getting back to filming? The movie industry is trying to return to some semblance of normalcy. We begin in the Middle East. Daniel Kurtzer served as the U. S ambassador to Israel in Egypt, now a professor of Middle East policy studies at Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. Thank you for joining us. So this seems as if it is a major diplomatic achievement. Is it Well, it certainly is important that the relationship that's been going on for a number of years below the surface has now come out in public. It also is important because as part of the deal Israel has foregone the possibility of annexation, at least temporarily. So in that respect, it's an interesting development. So what changes for who and what doesn't change in terms of some groups like the Palestinians? Well. The biggest positive impact is on the prime minister Tanya, whose political fortunes he gets a boost for having hung tough on this issue, and Issue of relations with out of state. The biggest loser, of course, is the Palestinians who have been meeting in emergency sessions ever since this development was announced today. And they have condemned it rather forcefully. Ah, And so the backlash on this is yet to be seen, but to back up to the issue of annexation of Westbank, part of the West Bank. That was something that Netanyahu and his most ardent followers really wanted. So does this not hurt him by postponing it. Well, he certainly will be attacked from the far right. The four right party in Israel. The Amina Party was unhappy with the annexation plan anyway, because they didn't think it were far enough. So he hasn't lost much ground with them within his own coalition. There's the balancing act. Do you take this bird in the hand of normalization with an Arab state? Without necessarily giving up forever on the idea of annexation, because if you look at the White House statement, it only talks about a temporary pause in this effort, which means that It may come back at us sometime later in the White House, taking a victory lap and they did keep a lid on this until that the big announcement today But as you were saying earlier, this has been talked about for years behind the scenes. Well, yeah, The actual normalization I think is a relatively new development in the United Arab Emirates leadership had said about a month and 1/2 ago that Israel can choose between normalization and annexation. So I think once that signal was out there, the White House was agile enough to pick up on it, and they deserve credit for moving this forward, But, you know The reality is official goes ahead with annexation. This all comes crumbling down. So is ah is ah, problematic elements of this is well so, of course, the president obviously wants to have a major foreign policy achievements. Before Election Day, especially in the in the Mideast. Jared Kushner, son in law has also been apparently working as well with Saudi Arabia. Do you think that that's The other shoe that might drop before Election Day Formal, you know, diplomatic relations between Israel and South and Saudi Arabia. I would bet against it, frankly, with the ideal signifies that One side gives the other side gives and they work out an arrangement. The question is, If you want the Saudis to move, what do they get for it? Israel, of course, could threaten annexation again. But that's now old news. So my guess is that the other Arab states, particularly in the Gulf, Will step back and wait and see how the full out is before making any moves. Daniel Kurtzer served as a U. S ambassador to Israel in Egypt, now Professor Middle East policy studies. For instance, school of public and international affairs. Well, the cat's out of the bag, even if the mail isn't president. Trump admits that he'd like to see mail in ballots counted as slowly as possible. Very nice. When.

"11 10 99 3 Brentwood herbal show alongside the coach Matt Doherty. Something very interesting happened earlier today. The president announced it late this morning. And that is an agreement between Israel and the U A. E the United I remember. It's to Ah, to normalize relations. This is a historic move, and I want to bring somebody on who can give us the context on this decision. He is my very good friend Ilan Berman. Ellen Berman joins us from the American Foreign Policy Council, and he's on the phone a lot. Thanks so much for making time for us, my friend. Oh, my pleasure. Good to be back. Good to have you back. So let folks know sort of what this means. What is this translate into into meaning for for the American people looking at this very complicated part of the world. Right, So I think there's a few we big and important takeaway here first of all, um, this, uh, this is the culmination of a process that's been going on for the last decade. Arguably the single largest and most important foreign policy accomplishment that the Israeli government has managed over the last 10 years or so has been too Start a dialogue with the the Arab states of the Persian Gulf on that dialogue first started because both Israel and those countries shared concerns about Iran, which was rising and expanding its nuclear capabilities. But in recent years the dialogue has expanded very significantly. And now it's not just a security discussions about how to contain Iran. But it's become something much, much more. It's become a conversation about politics. The conversation about economics And it's something that's really dynamic as we saw from the announcement today, because because another thing here as well, which I think is important is that you know, this is a real pivot point, right? That's sort of the gates are open now because this is a dialogue. This is the most advanced version of the dialogue. But it's not the only one. Israel's having this dialogue, not just with the is having this dialogue quietly with countries like Bahrain and Saudi Arabia as well. So what we could be seeing right? Not sure yet, but we could be seeing is that this is the start of a much larger trend that ends up with a much more integrated integrated a much safer Middle East. Because countries that are trading and having relationships don't go to war typically, and we've certainly seen the work put in with the with the Camp David Accords Egypt and Israel. You've seen Jordan and Israel you've now seen you mentioned Saudi Arabia and Israel. And now you're you're talking about the Bahrain. I guess. Even Kuwait's Ah, in the conversation to some measures. Well, that is that's a Big piece, a real estate that is de escalating the violence and the anger and the tensions. Additionally, is it my understanding? Is this correct that Israel and the US air the two most technologically advanced? Economies and trading institutions in that part of the world as well. No, That's exactly right. And so what you actually have is you have this lash up between the two most dynamic economies in the region. Israel is a global leader in high tech in software in computer hardware development, has one of the world's most advanced digital economy. Virtually all economic transactions are online. And that's why you see those two countries in a much more dynamic economic growth model than other countries in the region. Right. So when those two guys get together, really, I think stole something very word for the region because Other countries that want to emulate this that want to expand their economies that want to be more prosperous, are naturally going to look at this alliance. Does this lay the foundations? Ellen Berman joining us here for American Foreign Policy Council? Does this lay the foundations for what people have talked about overtime? You know, sort of a Middle Eastern version of NATO or an alliance. Like that. Where these nations working cooperation in concert with each other to deal with threats, whether they're Isis Al Qaeda. Ah, breaking out of Iran working on a nuclear program. Is we seeing that that sort of Ah coalescence. So I think this is probably the most important point because there's been a lot said, especially now, right in the run up to the presidential election about how the Trump Administration really isn't navigating foreign policy well, but the reality actually is That what you're seeing the administration doing in the Middle East is part of a larger strategy and the strategy that has this maximum pressure campaign against Iran as part, but only apart because it also encompasses their approach. The Middle East also encompasses the deal of the century between the Israelis and the Palestinians. And smack in the middle of the connective tissue that connects everything in this new security arrangement in the Middle East that's intended to keep Iran down that's intended to de escalate tensions between Israel and the Arab states. That took a huge step forward today. Okay, final final question for you, and it's sort of tangential, but it's it's still very relevant to the news cycle. Given what's taken place in Beirut this last week, your level of concern on that that situation destabilizing. We know Hezbollah's got got operations there. Iran is very present in Lebanon and their north of Of the Israeli border. If Lebanon becomes a failed state already is looks like it's going to a grim situation. No, it is and it's a grim situation in Lebanon. Let's be clear Weapon on is already of the old state of the country. That is more than $100 billion in underpaid loans to international financial institutions in the country. That's effectively a political hostage of a terror group that also holds 10% of the seats in the Lebanese parliament. Right. This is a country That is becoming concerned this unfolding political tragedy, but it's also like he said. It's a very volatile situation. In the last 36 hours or so. The almost the entire Lebanese government cabinet has resigned. And so what you have is you have what is essentially a leaderless nation right now in this sort of state of semi collapsed and what comes next becomes really important. Is it possible to stabilize 11 on maybe, But if Lebanon collapses further, it's gonna cause a lot of regional instability, Man. There's a lot of refugees and play here at this point, so Ellen Berman, Where do people go to get information on the American Foreign Policy Council where you're doing great work? Sure. Well, they can visit us online at a f p c dot ord were based in D. C. We do a lot of work on the Middle East and other issues and makes for some good reading Night. Nice to hear. Ah foreign policy success. Regardless of the circumstances, it comes together it Sze. Good news out there a lot. I appreciate your time today, my friend. My buddy all the best that salon Berman, 74 57 year old and I just want to get you a little context. So you understand what the backstory is on this story that is moving. I'm Brett Winnable.

The Saudi Arabia-Russia oil war, explained
"Let me begin with a very silly rudimentary question that is like a lay up for you but to a lay person like me it's it's actually confusing so I'm watching the news today about corona virus and I was watching Maria Bartiromo show earlier when I was in the green room getting ready for America's newsroom on the news channel and much of the discussion on the panel surrounded this whole fight over oil prices and and oil and how that might affect fracking and and shale producing here in the United States and I was sort of thrown for a loop a little bit because I associated the selloff on the markets recently completely with corona virus but there's this other massive story that I just haven't had the band with to really follow or process properly can you just walk us through what's happening on that side yeah sure Saudi Arabia basically lives off its oil sector if you'll all of its government payments to its citizens that those payments go don't go to its citizens and they have a problem the Saudi Arabia got really mad Russia refused to cut its oil output by half a million barrels a day so Saudi Arabia which has tremendous supply capacity it's considered quote the central bank of oil for years or decades Saudi Arabia can easily open the spigots and it did it drove down prices sparking a global price for during week demand when much of the world is in recession so the fact that Saudi plans to now increase their oil output per day above ten million barrels that's the problem we currently pumps about nine point seven million barrels a day but the thing is it has the capacity to ramp up to to put out twelve and a half million barrels a day do you see oil prices plunging by massive double digit drops and weak but here's the flip side of that the plunge in prices we could maybe see two dollars maybe a Buck fifty a gallon right as the summer driving season starts plus it helps the jet fuel costs for US airlines battered by the corona virus problem when oil prices go down like this says that the trend of it the oil patch guide to saying this is a one trillion dollar stimulus for the world economy so there's always an offset so when we saw that when there's a shake out like that when oil prices plunge like that the shale producers in the oil patch guys are kind of on the margin they borrowed a lot of money to fund their operations that jump on high interest rate they can't make money when oil plunges like that often it said they may be forty five dollars a barrel maybe more it's a break even point for it R. U. S. producers and other producers that so you know so when they boil price plunges they don't have the cash flow to pay back from from forty five which would be into what well if it goes below that I mean we're talking now I hate I feel bad for guys in all the patch but the I'm talking to traders in the pits they're talking thirty dollars a barrel of so you know so that's painful for a sector that has stopped us from tipping into recession under the Obama administration does it get any credit much credit for that but it did to protect the food going into depression thanks to the recession forgive me reception reception during the crash but it also has made us do a political force around the world right now the biggest producers around the world prices were independent we went from being dependent to independent to a net exporter which is a huge development for for the U. S. economy but Elizabeth before we turn to corona virus one of the countries that wasn't mentioned in your answer but is at play in very much in the mix with this price war that's going on in the oil market you mentioned Russia you mention of course the U. S. you mentioned Saudi Arabia how does China factor in well it's interesting China factors big because China buys a lot of its oil from Saudi it does take up a lot from Russia but truth be told it does play a lot of Iranian oil and that is saying of course the trump administration because of sanctions against Iran US crude is also a big player for China China has always been watchful of what goes on in the Persian Gulf with the tree for mood attack so you know there is that China is China's a big fourth two given demand there in that country it's it's a powerful force since since you mention just to jump and you mentioned Iran as well my wheels are now turning in my head and I'm thinking about the corona virus disaster in Iran where they were not taking it seriously they were completely dishonest and opaque about everything and now you have a significant number of the members of their sort of fake parliament who have been infected with corona virus it is a huge huge problem with the with rates of people infected very high and of course we don't know the real numbers because it's a very secretive regime you have that problem piled on top of what was already a period of significant economic turmoil and hardship where you saw demonstrators in the streets of people being killed and imprisoned now if you put on top of that a collapse in the price of oil that is the last thing that the Iranian regime probably wants right Iran also filtered into Turkey and and into India yes you're absolutely right about what's going on on the streets of Iran I mean if they did that what I I have to stress it again I mean our oil sector is the powerful the US domestic and geopolitical force so anything that can be done to support it it's good for the country so you know do I see Russia interfering here that's the rumor mill cranking that you know we understand that you know Russia's Putin has been battling it's gonna minute metal this way be the oil market market I mean that's just a rumor we don't know that for sure we do know that Russia unlike unlike a lot of these players they've got a gigantic what's called the sovereign wealth funds like you know I'm always laughing when nor of wind you know Bernie Sanders brings up the Nordic model as can even ritualism capitalism Norway has one of the biggest sovereign wealth funds in the world built by the oil it's it's massive oil and and gas sector so Russia has the defense of advantage here they kept a hundred fifty billion dollar wealth fund to offset any slump and bolster the ruble I'm not sure that Iran has that so turning to corona virus later on the program congressman Adam Kinzinger a Republican from Illinois he's gonna be here I'm curious to ask him about the appetite among house Republicans Senate Republicans people on the hill on the right side of the aisle is there an appetite there for what the president has just been talking about the last day or so we saw a bit of a better day certainly on Wall Street today than we did yesterday fueled in part by a stimulus package that might be employed to help prop up certain businesses and help people who might be displaced or quarantine for periods of time who couldn't work out what is your assessment of what the president has suggested it's nothing official yet what do you think would be effective what don't you think would be effective in is there a political will to get that sort of thing down in your view I'd not sure they have the political will I think I yeah I just we could just cross that Steven Mnuchin is now going to meet with Nancy Pelosi this is as of early earlier in the day you know so I do I just want to see the details of it I don't know if it's going to be a two percentage point payroll tax cut that the president wants and that the short term stimulus that does put a lot of money in people's hands of you know it will impede the holiday that will last until June the payroll tax cut for Willie structure collapses and wait for it until after the election right SBA loans are they going to be interest free you know I am I'm going to get on a phone call with a lot of hospital directors tomorrow I want to understand what their needs all right in the face of the corona virus outbreak so you know we already have a one mile quarantine zone around newer shell I'm here in New York City this is north of the city I just wonder if there's any talk about what the doctors and hospitals on the front lines of this need and if those needs are going to be met I know the White House is intensifying the push for coronavirus measure of what is that Democrats appetite for the Democrats would have to sign off on any payroll tax cut how do you view the state of the economy because we just saw on Friday another monster jobs report it seems like absent this epidemic this health crisis things were continuing term steam roll right along in a really positive way to what extent could this situation coronavirus grind all of that to hold or could it be you know is there an opportunity for what was an underlying strong economy to bounce back very quickly what what what's your sense of that you know I like that guy I like these questions because I think you sense of them totally geek and nerd at heart I mean I've been a key key highlights of blood that could directly right I mean you know I'm geeky and nerdy United but study all sorts of trend lines that cover corporate accounting scandals like testified before Congress about the IRS twice I get into the footnotes of it I'm just watching data I like watching data crossing I think this economy is really strong I think it's in a powerful floating right now and while it's a powerful I was surprised Wall Street was surprised to see solid two hundred fifty three thousand jobs report last Friday that says the bid you know the numbers coming in for temporary right when you know the corona virus we knew about starting in December you know in the revisions to the prior month went up I'm looking at an S. and P. five hundred that has quadrupled over eleven years I'm looking at apple doubling within about two years time Microsoft doubling with an attack around two years time I'm looking at S. and P. five hundred and the two hundred day moving average it's holding its finding support at a trend line that sort of connecting to these other bottoms we saw in October two thousand eleven and December twenty eighteenth what do I say those those around government shutdown fight so those are sort of market crack up but when you see the S. and P. holding at that level you have to say what supporting it there's not a bear market capitulation right now I don't know if we cut the bottom yesterday for going to continue as the coronavirus

Global death toll surpasses 2003 SARS epidemic
"The death toll in China from the corona virus has already exceeded that of the deadly sars outbreak in two thousand two and many of the world's leading infectious disease experts say the outbreak is likely to become a pandemic which is defined as an ongoing epidemic on two or more continents admiral James to read as former commander of NATO in a Bloomberg opinion columnist writes that the military may be best equipped to battle a pandemic and he's here to tell us why what can China do as an authoritarian country society that the U. S. can't do they have complete domination over their citizens and so they can simply mandate complete in the center of the country this will be like putting a quarantine around Chicago St Louis Kansas city the entire upper Midwest and simply saying no one goes in no one goes out I think that would be a very tough sell in the United States of America because we're used to freedoms and the ability to move that are not always available and try so then if China is able to do that does that indicate that they might go pretty far toward containing this certainly we helped out and it's too soon to say that were either at the very dark and of the spectrum which would be like a hundred years ago with Spanish influenza which ultimately infected forty percent of the world's population with a twenty percent mortality rate we are not there yet on the other hand we are seeing the mortality rate rising floating around two percent now and rising and just as a point of comparison normal garden variety and who would kill thirty thousand American beer and some years is up point one percent mortality this is two percent and rising and that's if we even believe the Chinese public relations decorations so too soon to tell but we ought to be concerned and we ought to be preparing in case this does trend toward the dark end of the spectrum tell us about your experience when you are commander of the US Southern Command in overseeing the response to some cholera outbreaks in Haiti in Colorado is they are much more containable disease the causes are extremely well down the remediation as well now but if you turned over a significant cholera outbreak in Haiti which occurred after the massive earthquake there in two thousand nine he turned that over simply to civilian agencies especially in a poor country like Haiti it would just run rampant through a population so we were able to bring in the game against military forces by the way not just you asking back actually very few US it was more resilient Chile and Colombia and the region catchcan sent their military to help contain the cholera outbreak the spring water water generation electricity electrical generation who hospitals mobile hospitals medical care and above all the pre order to what can break into a very chaotic situation that's what we did in Haiti quite cholera do you think that there will be resistance from US medical professionals to having the military deal with this I think that initially billion caregivers and civilian humanitarian workers are always a little concerned about getting the military involved for a variety of reasons but give the outbreak is cruelly thank them again I know they will thank you for that assistance and we know this June because of the a bowl of crisis several years ago in West Africa where eight a group of three west African nations had very significant outbreak tens of thousands were killed many many of selected a US military along with many other militaries around the world stepped up spent mobile hospital sent trained personnel that's what helped contain that outbreak I don't think we're going to go to China but if this outbreak get bigger and more dramatic here in the United States you'll see the military involved many of our listeners will have seen the light Han China just last week with about two hundred fifty American where did they go we went to March Air Force base in California why because the military provides instant quarantine as well as all the support necessary I think you might see more of that so and world is the military prepared for this or do they have to gear up what has to happen now we have to gear up as you would expect in the as I think any US citizen would would want as a general proposition the US military is focused on north Korean missiles and rainy and bad behavior in the Persian Gulf and China's growing military capability and Russia's hypersonic cruise missiles were in military organization designed to defend the country in a military context but here's the good days we do have contingency plans operational plans very formal lay down of how the military hand held in pandemics and the epicenter of that planning is a place called U. S. northern command it is the four star commander who's responsible for domestic responses within the United States earthquakes fires floods and in this case a pandemic so that particular group in the military is fairly well prepared the rest of the military will have been here a ball lands and take this on again if it goes high order and let's pray that it does not if this does speak come a pandemic is the US going to have to join forces with other countries to fight it I believe we should and we probably will have to if it is a true pandemic of definition of pandemic is an epidemic on multiple continents that one so right now we have an epidemic on Asia we have the start of the possibility first use cases in Africa here in North America spectra if we see an epidemic level up in and I would say Africa unfortunately would be the next candidate because the country still have a great deal of response capability if it goes global in that sense I think we're gonna need a NATO to deal with a pandemic and it will be a formal NATO of course yeah but it'll be a coalition of nations with capability to work on this together again this is very much the dark end of the spectrum we are not there yet but it's work planning thinking and talking about it so that if it does get worse we can be ready how much do you think China's under reporting I'd say by about fifty percent the fifth five zero percent I think it is a significant under reporting we are the all putting pressure on China to ensure in this case here giving one hundred percent accurate reports we

Does killing Soleimani really change anything in the Middle East?
"For a generation Iran's May General Sulejmani he was a consequential Fica League in the Persian Gulf for the Americans in the region Sunnis? He was a terrorist mastermind for the Iranians the Assad regime in Syria Hezbollah in Lebanon. Sulejmani was a hero who protected the Shia cresent in the region. So it's no wonder the Iranian generals death via a drone attack attack in Baghdad. That was a huge news story. Earlier this month cast into the money rainy and military commander assassinated in the US drone strike on mm struggling marks a huge escalation coming just days at was revered by Iran supporters in proxies being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in the Middle East over the we took took action last night to stop a war. What comes next? What's the broader strategy? Here we did not take action to start a war. Your since the American killing of Sulejmani Tehran launched a missile strike on your spices in Iraq and in the process mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian Ilana carrying one hundred seventy six passengers something. The Mullah's had initially denied responsibility but crucially the Iranians signings avoided killing Americans. which was the red line? The president trump has drawn. US military response. So we'll this episode. Leave Iran Ryan stronger or is tyron now more isolated than ever and what is the showdown between Tehran and Washington Maine for Iraq the US military Tori prisons there and Iran's nuclear ambitions. Danny Applica- is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington and Co host of the AAAGH. Ah podcast what the Hell is going on. Making sense of the world get identity. Hey Tom and I'm in. Sokoll is author of Iran Rausing the survival and and future of the Islamic Republic and CO author of Islam beyond borders the Oma in world politics. Welcome back to Iran. How good morning now? Also Amani abetted genocide in Syria to keep the Assad regime in power. He's responsible for the deaths of many American troops. He armed Hezbollah in. Lebanon with rockets is to attack. Innocent Israelis killed many innocent Sunnis in Iraq. So I mean isn't the world better off without Sulejmani. Were president trump. I think so. And also quite a number of American allies in the region Probably I think the same way but at the same time demand was a national hero and in fact that he was the one of the top strategic brains behind Iran's overseas operations and expansion of eight onion influence in the region. I will just support related to the fair that it only leadership has about the possibility of an American attack or an Israeli attack on a combined and attack. But let me see this Tom that nobody is commendable. dimitris full of commanders. Top commanders into the Nobel Prize winners and so on General money is being replaced And I think e to the debt is a widespread view in the West. That if you bump one or two individuals isn't the situation is going to get better We duty cold in history that take for example a Prime Minister Anthony Eden go around the nineteen fifties and calling for the elimination of Jamaa Nasser as the national president of Egypt and has was that this man is removed from a then. Everything will be fine. Nothing died in nine hundred. Seventy and a situation has not improved a cold and and at the same thing was said to be so I mean the point though. Is that knocking off Salomon. He's not going to make a great deal of difference. But also can I just add to this Dani salamone and these Iranian backed Shia proxies. They did help inadvertently into why help. America Islamic state. So does it worry you that people cheering the loudest about this. Guy's death other suny jihadists in there are slighted areas in the desert and the mountains of Iraq and Syria. I don't think they're the ones who are cheering the loudest I. I think you heard pretty loud cheering from here. I think you heard some plenty of loud cheering in In Iraq and Lebanon and and elsewhere throughout throughout the region. Look you know. I think it's important to acknowledge that. That as the head of the cuts force Qassem Soleimani was a very powerful folks very influential very strategic and very effective leader and he brought that effectiveness to things. That would terrible And the arming of Hezbollah. The murderer of half million Syrians. The arming of mass. The arming of in Yemen. We could go on for a while here but but But he did all of those things but when when the challenge was from Sundays you had is. He helped set up and guide ride. The hoste. Shabby the popular mobilization units in Iraq that That that ended up being part of the battle to to defeat Isis. The problem here is that every situation in the region is is more complicated than the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just because Stalin Fort with us to defeat Nazi Germany did not make stolen a good guy. And if you look at these anti-regime protests some and. I've been breaking out in Iran since Tehran admitted that its military military shot down. A Ukrainian passenger Ilana have the Iranians overreached because despite the Iranian successes in Iraq Syria and Lebanon on on their rule out officials sites there on stable they print across he so have the Iranians overreached. There's no doubt that many Iranians feel about the Ashim and today have protested over the last few months in order to bring about A structural reforms today as a system of governance and economy which is setting enormously under represent- trump's sanctions but has the Iran overreached. What are I pointed out earlier I mean Iran does fear a a very strongly as possible American that much Israeli combined attack and therefore what update on your the humans done his belt reasonable security and press such for itself which would really want? Shepherdess Arafat at all costs but that does not necessarily Saudi mean that Iran is only Aggressive power in the region aggressive actor in the region. I mean. Let's not forget that that that the destabilization Iraq really started the two thousand three. US invasion of that country. Okay so the. The American invasion of Iraq helped Iran on because it overturned the suny state and it created a Shia majority Stein. I saw a natural law with the Shia brethren in Tehran following following on from that Danny shortly a problem about striking at pro Iranian sheeham paramilitary groups as trump has done is the now part of the Iraqi state. So is it any wonder. Washington's increasingly modulation is part of the world. First of all. I think it's offensive talk about Shiites. As if they're all some sort of monolith. The share of Iraq are Arabs. The Shia of Iran are Persians. These these are different people this. These two countries Shia versus Shia fought a bloody war for eight years in which there were one million casualties casualties in the nineteen eighties. The notion that somehow Iraq is a natural satellite or or or or slave to Iran is wrong Iran has chosen to try to dominate that country and demonstrations throughout the central and southern part of Iraq. Over the last month have been against Iranian domination the Iranian consulate in Jeff was burned to the ground at the end of last year not by Sonny's he's not by Sunni jihadis not by Isis not by Kurds but by Shiites carrying placards yelling out to out for Iran. Get Out of our country and I think that that is absolutely right to suggest that Iran has gained more influence in Iraq since the demise of Saddam Hussein. I I guess I I'm just not that big a fan of Saddam Hussein and the and the stability that he brought to Iraq. I wish that the United States had done more in the aftermath of the wall. I think thinks that we I think that we failed miserably. In many instances I think it was absolutely fatal in two thousand eleven when at a time of genuine stability in Iraq Iraq. President Obama withdrew troops and really provided the opportunity for Isis. To rise up again. My guest Daniel Placate from the American Enterprise Institute. And I'm in Sokoll. He's the author of Iran rausing and Islam beyond borders. I mean how would you respond to all of this. Because we've got these tensions here between Tehran Iran and Washington and the Iranian backed Shia politicians released most of them in Baghdad. I support if not closer ties with Tehran. They want the the Americans out of Iraq. But don't the sooners and the Kurds fee for the Iranian intrusion in Iraqi sovereignty. I absolutely and of course sir. The APP is not only the president of the American so who'd be which are being the opposed to in Iraq but also the presence of eight onions there. No question Ah about that but at the same time if we know that the majority of the Iraqi population is made up of the Shiites and some powerful elements among the Shiites have got the value equals relationship and relationship. What they don't know in the meantime ago? The Iraqi parliament release the iranian-backed Majority Shia legislators I support the withdrawal of US troops Danny now given trump's ambivalence about the region and the fact that he was elected impact to get the US out of the so-called forever awards isn't a US military withdrawal from Iraq. Just what trump and many war-weary Americans want. Well it's kind of funny. Isn't it because we start off talking about the you know the Iranians and what they want and and of course. The number one goal is to get the Americans out of the region and that is in fact the instruction is that has gone out to all of their proxy groups. All around the region. Is You need to step up activities to get the Americans out. Then we've got the president of the United States. It's who dearest and fondest goal is to get American troops out of the region so so a couple weeks after killing Kassim Sulaimaniyah. We have this unbelievably in coherent bizarre response. Where we where we're doing exactly what the around him one let? This is what Donald Trump has to sort out. He has to sort out whether he's the president. He's the kind minded president who who leads in a forthright fashion against men like costume ceremony. Who Seek to destabilize the region and extend Iran's hegemony Germany or he is going to be the kind of president that like Bernie Sanders like Barack Obama wants to turn around and high tail fin is to the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's uh-huh Washington energy independent America Stein fought these endless wars danny well A? They aren't endless wars. We have lost fewer people in these. This was than than than we lost a single day in World War Two so while they are conflicts that have continued on and off to a certain extent. You know the notion Shen that we've been sold that somehow we've still got one hundred and fifty thousand troops on the ground and losing them at a rapid pace is just wrong. We lost six in Syria. I I mourn every single one of them but the Kurds lost eleven thousand in their fight against Isis. So what what. What is the reason? We'll tell you very straightforwardly woodley because every time we turn tail every time someone says let's get out of that bloody Middle East. Let's pay attention to something fun. Like Asia and you'd like that. Tom Would now but hang on your way but every time we say that we end up being dragged back because the dynamics in the region of the ones that bring us back we need. We need a long-term solution that lets us. Stay away for good rather than one where we run away. Anita did it come back every single decade I mean the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal Provided tyron with as much as apparently one hundred fifty billion dollar windfall. Aw and certainly many people who are skeptical of the deal side that the Iranian spent lavishly arming the Shia militias across the region. So what it was trump right to pull the US out of the deal and instead impose maximum Prussia built around these economic sanctions on Iran. I think he was totally wrong and and I can care. There has been a backlash president. Trump's would would you withdrawal has a basically a provoked said that on Not to really go for the for police. Speed to in order to rebuild that they have nuclear program and. I think you're going to really do that. And of course that also carries the risk of a possible confrontation from tation between the United States and Iran possibly Israeli attacks on Iran and that could easily dissolved in a regional warfare. That at the end nobody may may be able to control it Danny. Any I mean a lively debate. Thanks so much for being back on. ABC

U. sanctions and Iran's been supplying oil to Syria and the regime of president Bashar lasted for years now and nobody's done anything about it until this British action Iran replied by saying U.

K. doesn't like that idea he said they no question of the swap and the reason we're talking about this right is because there are concerns about this escalating out of control because there are a lot of tensions in the Gulf right now loosely I mean Iran the U. K. and the U. S. all say they don't want to see any armed conflict coming out of this but the U. S. has beefed up its military presence in the Gulf of course it has long standing military bases presence in the region and Iran's military is also on alert so analysts see the potential for further escalation as a very real risk we've got foreign vessels in Iran in custody we've got one around in tanker in British custody and no sign of the tensions cooling off so what happens next is the big question and a lot of the options are not that great I mean remember this is all happening in the context of the trump administration's maximum pressure campaign against Iran a trump has been saying the return of American sanctions on Iran and other pressures are all designed to force to run back to the negotiating table damn or out a tougher version of the twenty fifteen nuclear agreement that's the one truck pulled the U. S. out of so far around unanimous response from the military to the supreme leader has been nope Iran doesn't negotiate under pressure we're not going to do it so we'll have to see if this continuation of commercial vessels being seized in the Persian Gulf adds more pressure for some kind of international response that's in pairs Peter Kenyon.
