What's Behind Protests in Iran and Iraq?

What's Behind Protests in Iran and Iraq?

"Our main story this morning we've been covering the wave of global protests from Hong Kong to Latin America and our shows over the past few weeks today. We're going to catch you up on what's been happening. In the Middle East and Iran and Iraq specifically both countries have seen widespread protests during the past month this morning in Iraq back protesters set fire to an Iranian consulate. In the city of Nejaf Sooner Rasmussen has been following it all he joins me now from Beirut so soon let's start with Iran then. We saw some pretty violent protests there. What was there genesis? So these protests they were triggered by a decision by the Ruhani government commit to drastically increase fuel prices. Gasoline prices pretty much overnight they enacted this decision late on a Friday. Nine Friday is like Sunday. Iran holiday probably two draws little attention to this decision as possible and increase fuel prices on on about two hundred percent which was the case neuron something that hits everybody in the country but especially lower classes and middle classes and this of course comes after for a long period years of deep economic crisis in Iran that's only been exacerbated by American sanctions American sanctions. Iran have have undermined the national currency. It sent prices skyrocketing and it's is also increased unemployment and all these things combined with just a general unhappiness with the with Iran's isolation in the world and also the government's inability to give any kind of relief from international sanctions. I think that's what eventually triggered this protests that we saw earlier. It's month so walk me through what happened. These protests then begin and then we see a strong response from the regime right. The regime came out in full force and it came out very quickly. We've had reports of for mass arrests of quite violent crackdown on protesters. I think actually actually this crackdown. Tanner surpasses anything. We've seen from the Iranian regime. In the past there was also a a big anti-government protests in two thousand and nine for different reasons there were some protests in late two thousand seventeen early twenty eighteen but this time the crackdown town was more swift and from everything we see. It's it that we've seen has always been more violent and it's caused more deaths among protesters is a little I need to make a caveat that it's it's a little unclear what happened in Iran because one of the things that we did was to almost entirely cut caught off the national Internet those only about four or five percent cutting tiffany over over a period of the week while this crackdown was unfolding. So we do know To some extent what happened but still a lot of things that are only just emerging now and I think the reason the regime crackdowns hottest and now it has experienced is from for example Syria where it helped President Assad fin doth a big popular uprising. There and it's seen across the region. How public topic uprisings can can threaten national governments and unseat them and I think he wants to avoid anything similar happening inside Iran? I mean you bring up protests elsewhere in the region. We also saw that. There has been unrest in Iraq as well over the past few weeks. Yes and then does that. That unrest in Iraq has been even more violent actually the protests there have have demanded a complete overhaul of the a political system. They're not just going for the prime minister. They're they're basically asking the entire political lead to resign in the want to complete a new political system system and in the political system Iran has a lot of influence through local militias that have the whole lot sway in the local government so the popular protests there are a challenge to Iran's influence in Iraq and a lot of protests was actually especially down south in Iraq have have also called for Iran's leave the country and as these protests have continued. People have been to have been the streets for several months now now as they have continued they've kind of taken on an increasingly anti Rania bent and and especially down. South protesters testers are increasingly turning against Iran. And last month Stephen third down the Iranian consulate. And so we've seen unrest arrest in Iran. We've seen unrest in Iraq. What does the future hold? I know it's hard to predict these things but it seems like quite a lot's been kicking off. I think until until the Iranian government manages to Kinda give the population some relief whether economic or social is also a lot of social grievances inside Tyron. I think we'll see this protest kind of boil over from time to time whether they seriously challenge the the government also the broader leadership in Tehran. That remains to be seen. I think. Uranian Dirani population is also very aware that any kind of uprising will be met with fierce forced by the Iranian authorities.

Erdogan's safe zone will be anything but for Syria's Kurds

"President rage of tie up. Aired one says he wants to form safe zones in northern Syria. So that millions of refugees from the country's bitter. Civil war can begin to return home. Paul Rogers is a professor of peace. Studies at Bradford university. Paul welcome to the program. First of all, can you explain how this would work? It's the key thing is that's the we'll ready being something like three hundred thousand the refugees in Syria returning to the country, really across the border torture. Mike Cole northwest Syria, which is being an area that took actually being controlling now. That in a sense is already that we don't know whether the three thousand three hundred thousand figures, accurate, probably isn't it. Centrally true that took us had huge numbers of refugees go into to key both from Iraq. But more particularly from Syria, maybe several million even so it does really want to see them return. But the problem is while took his century has a kind of buffer zone to the west of you. Freight is of the western pouch of northern Syria. It does not control territory twenty extent to the east, and what it really wants to do is to have some sort of zone of its own control stretching about thirty two kilometers twenty miles into Syria. But of course, the point is east of the Euphrates in the northeastern politics area, the territory's very largely controlled by codes, particularly the fight is of the socal could if people's protection units, they wipe E G, and the the Turks regards the white PG as more or less, an offshoot or very close ally of the outlawed Kurdistan. Well, because poverty, the PK K within Turkey. So what you're really seeing is what took you wants to do is extending its existing area of controlled and Swiss Syria to a belt writer loan, the northeastern Bulte dot com. Tamil problematic, their assistant, they won't do it. They'd like to do with American cooperations the American troops leave for the cousin. Extremely unhappy about that. Well, that's interesting because the Americans have said and are trumpeting. The fact they believe ISIS in the region is defeated but before the world knew of the so-called Islamic state. There was and still in many places is a brutal civil war. So how would it be possible? Then that there's there's space for people to return to well. The presumption is on the Turkish pub that the war is starting to ease up to to sort of ease away because the reality is that President Assad does have control of much of the country's being helped in that by well Circe by Iranian forces by Hezbollah by the Russians and in a sense to but in very bluntly as far as most a is consent. He is now winning. This will however unpalatable that may be many observers across the world. So the Turks now believe that at least. Some of the refugees will feel emboldened to go home people who've basic refugees from the terrible fighting rather than Solta known opponents this regime, I think that's just that thinking, but a colts. The real issue is what happens as far as the could shares of northeastern Syria can said let it be said there's very good independent evidence that in many of Nolte Syria the codes have actually rump. Things sorta technocratically pretty competently. This is why the wires on. That course, what they really fear is the with Trump wanting to get the two thousand customers troops out to Syria previously allied with these codes than because we'll be more or less left on the ledge. And that I think is a call surreal unhappiness, not just run suspects in northeast Syria, but across Kurdish communities in into in Iraq and possibly even Iran as well. Well, as you mentioned, we don't know the exact details of this, but Ankara seems to have some consensus with the US and with with the white PG. But I wonder about what the reaction would be from Moscow and the Assad regime in Damascus how open would they be to this very open? But on the other hand as far as Moscow is concerned. They do not want to incur greater expenditure in Syria. They want to maintain their influence. It's been very custody for them in economic terms. So basically, they will settle for something.

"Let's go to Sean in Atlanta. Sean, you're on the Medved show on d day. Thank you, Mark. Appreciate your show. Thank you. I believe that Trump be saying that he he got rid of ISIS that we won the war against ISIS. I disagree with that. Because I remember Russia coming out during the war. They went in to rescue their friends, Syria. And I remember them saying that they had won the war against ISIS. They had announced it. So I don't know who's right who's wrong. But I believe Russia. Well, I again, I don't I don't think that's true because Russia. Russia has not been aligned with any of the forces against the regime. Russia's been in aligned with the regime in Syria. Now, I will say that Russia could argue we've won the war in Syria, generally because the whole purpose of the war was whether to keep or get rid of the Assad regime. Russia was on the side of the butcher of Damascus the President Assad of Syria, Bashar Al Assad, but in terms of Russia winning the war against ISIS. It's not and it's also by the way, I think it's it's a very bad idea to talk about winning the war or eliminating ISIS. Isis has been rolled back and President Trump was right? When he said, ISIS is not dominant hasn't once was in Syria, but it hasn't been eliminated. And it's it's foolhardy to to talk that way. It seems to me. I'll tell you something else. Sean. I know you're gonna like this. The other person individual who deserves some credit for rolling back. Isis. Is Barack Obama because the mission to try to take on ISIS was begun under him. Now. President Trump rented up raise the priority of it. Good for him. But. President Obama deserves some credit to appreciate your call. Let's go to Tom in Glendora, California.

Syrian state media report missile attacks near Damascus

"Much a shock to a lot of Syrians to see the capital really feel the shake of this strike. There were several loud explosions heard in Damascus smoke has been seen rising over the Syrian capital. According to I witnesses, and the Syrian government has been telling the Syrian people about what it's calling US French and British aggression against Syria that was announced by President Trump just a short time ago that has been on Syrian television. The Pentagon is nearing a briefing from Defense Secretary Mattis about the military operation, the United States, France and Britain launched together tonight in Syria to punish president BUSTER for a suspected chemical attack against civilians nearly one week ago and to deter him from doing it again earlier today, President Trump directed the US military to conduct operations and continent with our allies. To destroy the Syrian regimes chemical weapons research development and production capability. Tonight, France, the United Kingdom and the United States took decisive action distract the Syrian chemical weapons infrastructure, clearly the Assad regime did not get the message last year. This time our allies, and we have struck harder. Together, we have sent a clear message to Assad and his murderously tenants that they should not perpetrate another chemical weapons attack for which they will be held accountable at nine PM eastern standard time French British in US forces struck targets in Syria in support of President Trump's objective to deter the future use of chemical weapons. The targets that were struck and destroyed were specifically associated with the Syrian regimes chemical weapons program we also selected targets that would minimize the risk to innocent civilians last year, we conducted a unilateral strike on a single site this evening. We conducted strikes with two allies on multiple sites that will result in a long term. Degradation Syrians capability to research develop an employee chemical and biological weapons. Important infrastructure was destroyed which will result in a setback for the Sharon regime to strike was not only a strong message to the regime that their actions were inexcusable, but it also inflicted maximum damage without unnecessary risk to innocent civilians. There have been a number of I witness reports of explosions lighting up the night sky in Damascus some reports that the Syrians were able to shoot off some surface to air missiles to take down some of what the US and its allies fired their way in a statement from President Assad that comes via Twitter the Syrian presidency. Tweets. Good souls will never be humiliated after the airstrikes a targeted strike to deters. President Trump said tonight bus route Assad from using chemical weapons again Syrian state media confirmed that the scientific. Research center in bars north of Damascus was targeted in the attack a number of rockets targeting warehouses belonging to the Syrian army and homes were intercepted. According to the Syrian government. The Defense Secretary did mention that a number of surface to air missiles were shot off by the Syrians. The Syrians claimed to have intercepted some of what the US France and Britain through at Syria. But there has been no confirmation of what those retaliatory strikes may have done. The Syrians are now claiming they struck down thirteen rockets. The Syrian people message on Syrian state television said a moment ago are defiant and courageous the Americans have been defeated and in growing scroll on Syrian television describes a cowardly terrorist attack only done for America to save face ABC's. Louis Martinez is with us from the Pentagon now and. Louis the targets that the Pentagon selected along with France and Britain for this military operation were very specific chemical weapons storage facilities. That's right. Aaron there were these three facilities to into Damascus Syria. One in western homes on they have to do with the production of chemical weapons was a chemical storage area. And the third was a research and development facility. I you heard general Dunford say that there were additional sites that could have been targeted. But would they chose these three particularly because they wanted to minimize the chance of civilian casualties. But what you're hearing from secretary Mattis right now is that this is a one shot deal right now. But the message is intended to be clear to Syria that they should not be using chemical weapons in the future. And I think that the the idea here is that if they catch win that Syria is doing that they may target these additional facilities. And I think that's the threat. That's being pushed on them right now loud explosions. Nhs rocked Damascus the sky filled with heavy smoke early Saturday Syria time as President Trump announced airstrikes taken in conjunction with the British and the French targeting chemical, weapons storage facilities meant to punish Syria for the recent attack just outside Damascus and to deter President Bashar Al Assad from using chemical weapons again. The president said the US was prepared to sustain this kind of response until the use of chemical weapons stops for the moment. Though, this wave of airstrikes, the Pentagon says is over and Defense Secretary Mattis called it a one time shot that has sent a very strong message to deter Assad from using chemical weapons the US and ally leadership said the focus of those airstrikes was to hit chemical weapons storage areas

"The storm's path, everyone who had to flee the storm the news of that though, and how deadly it will be will be next week this week. Well, we begin with a front page story from the Middle East that caught my attention. It was from Syria, and it was grim. Hopefully, the world took notice the report for the Wall Street Journal lead with this Assad is planning chlorine attack. USS the people of Syria, beaten and beleaguered balling, seven years of civil war under President Assad has one last refuge of rebellion. The north west province of an estimated three million noncombatant, citizens call it live their home. Unfortunately, some seventy thousand opposition fighters are there as well expressed my concerns to congressman Mike Gallagher, a former marine officer current member of the House Armed Services committee province south of Turkey at borders with Turkey, it's the last stronghold of anti Assad regime elements. The Russians the Iranians and the Syrians are targeting, and including Hezbollah elements and the threat of chemical weapons what understanding of the situation there. And what are we to do? Michael gallagher. Well, my belief is that a full on assault of ad-lib is a matter of when not understanding the very stern warnings that our administration has made. But I would say that a lot of those warnings have involved the administration saying don't use chemical weapons and have been silent about the broader question of the nature of the assault. Russia is already spreading propaganda claiming that the opposition is filming footage of a fake chemical attack as part of an information war campaign fortieth, and when Assad uses chemical weapons, this'll be another major humanitarian disaster because four in which the US, unfortunately, we'll do little I after we make major pronouncement. And you know, my opinion is always that we should not speak at all. We don't have this or we're not prepared to will stick. But from a policy standpoint, I will concede the US as you get actions. If we get it for so long. Curia? I think the right way to begin thinking about it live is not as an aside victory. But as the Russian and Iranian occupation of Syria and the impact that will have on our allies, Milovan and broader throughout the region. It looked could be Aleppo on steroids is a potential hundred thousand plus civilian casualties. And are we just going to let that happen? I think it will be serious costs our credibility if we let that happen. And while I applaud of what NASCAR divisive jumbled this data's that the US will be ready with a much stronger much stronger response than before at the side uses chemical weapons, and our British infringe allies have joined us in that call. So it's good that we want to hold us on accountable for these chemical weapons, but we've already conducted two strikes against decide regime, a third, especially if it much stronger, I believe would also crossed the threshold task the commander in chief south authorities constitute the beginning of a wider campaign against the fabric. Then not only do essays credibility. Can cares? I think there are serious constitutional concerns. And I don't think you and I ever talked about whether you believe the commander in chief has inherent. Authorities conduct is whether you believe the post nine eleven can be stretched far enough to allow us to like TV's in Syria. My own is that it doesn't. And this is a congressional dereliction of duty. The fact that we haven't been able to revisit the Iraq war, and after the nine eleven and have that discussion about what we're doing in Syria, and what are the? Legal authorities because you answer that you said Al Qaeda is there that means the AM FM. Two thousand and one covers it we are authorized in the USA your laugh in two thousand one to do whatever we want to do in Syria, so long as there are terrorist elements there if it were a pure regime a regime action, I don't know, but it is clearly not appear regime regime action. So what if a group is officially excommunicated from al-qaeda or has public falling out from Qaeda as HDFS does and the enemy of Al Qaeda. Are they covered under the nine eleven. I did not. The enemies of America to define what the math means. It doesn't mean what they call themselves. It means what they were are intend to be as far as the Syrian regime itself. I mean, surely tacking Iranian regime, I believe in that its alliance with its tactical occasionally with Gaza HAMAs empowers us to act throughout the region. Now, you might wanna clean it up and make that explicit. But I believe we can actually engaged Iran under the meth. Oh, interesting. That's a that's an expansive reading. Now. I'm of the belief that we should have people waking up every day and our government thank thinking about how we impose costs on Iran and its proxies. And I think you can make an argument for whether we should authorize lethal force against his he's in Syria and elsewhere because it is a full-fledged terrorist group. But when congress doesn't act. Seat at the table. Or when congress doesn't even have an interest in oversight over the war outsources, all of this to the executive it sort of undermines a necessary component of our campaign successful, which just to say to have full backing of the American people and have the strength that comes from an open and honest debate.
