Iranian military acknowledges it shot down Ukrainian Boeing 737 jet by mistake

"Iran admits it shot down jetliner by mistake and if your Radharani Iran's revolutionary guard on Saturday the knowledge that it accidentally shot down the Ukrainian jetliner that crashed earlier this week killing hundred seventy six people on board after the government had repeatedly denied western accusations about evidence that it was responsible the plane was shot down early Wednesday hours after Ron launched a ballistic missile attack on two military bases housing U. S. troops in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of Iraqi general because some solar many Somali by the way they should also say general and terrorist Qasem Soleimani and in an American airstrike in Baghdad no one was hurt in the attack on the U. S. basis the admission raises a host of new questions such as what Iran why Iran did not shut down its International Airport airspace what was bracing for U. S. reprisal it also undermine the credibility of information provided by senior officials who for three days had adamantly dismissed allegations of missile of a missile strike as western propaganda Roger knowledge but also alters the narrative around its confrontation of U. S. in a way that could anger the Iranian people Iran had promised harsh revenge for soul monies death but instead of killing American soldiers its forces downed a civilian plane in which most passengers were Ronnie and and none survived general Amir Ali house the day I don't know the head of the guards aerospace division said he should accept full responsibility for the shoot down an address broadcast by CTV he said that when he learned about the downing of the plane I wished I was dead that's good which I wish you were dead too I he said he he raised the possibility to his superiors that its forces shot down the plane as early as Wednesday morning because the simultaneous occurrence of the launch of the crash was suspicious whatever the guy's name is said guard forces ringing the capital had beefed up their air defenses and were at the highest level of readiness fearing that the US would retaliate he said he suggested to Roger close its airspace but no action was taken he said the airlines pilot crew had done nothing wrong but officer made the bad decision opened fire on the plane after mistaking it for a cruise missile they mistake they mistake the plane a passenger jet with almost two hundred people wanted for a missile this is how bad their defense systems are in Iran come on do well man Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei you a real piece of garbage expressed his deep sympathy to the families of the victims are called on the armed forces to pursue probable shortcomings and guilt in the painful incident Ukraine's president does Lipsky said the crash investigation should continue and the perpetrator should be brought to justice he said a Roger compensate victims' families any request an official apology through diplomatic channels pretty near line not criticized Iran's decision leave their space open despite the hostilities so what really happened is Iran screwed up what really happened is Iran backed an attack of the US embassy in Iraq right Seoul money was behind the attack it was planning more as he sat in Baghdad Iraq not in his own country or run an American contractor was killed others were maimed and injured so we retaliated by taking out solo money and his sidekick dead Iran decided we're going to retaliate as well but it's just going to sort of be kicking dirt of the American shoes they could have probably killed Americans they wanted to they didn't wisely because you kill one American you see what happens we take out who you call a top general who we call a disgusting terrorist so they retaliate for no reason because they started it ed van they mistake a commercial jetliner for a missile come on man what are you talking about here and to the left of course this country including members of Congress have been blaming president Donald Trump for the Ukrainian airliner being shot down yes members of Congress have out now called the president out as as the person responsible for Iran now with meeting that shut down the jetliner little while ago I I posted over on Twitter which is a sure simple question with the far left lose now who are blaming president Donald Trump will be no apologize for being so wrong as Iran admits that they did it one eight hundred five zero one seventy eighty one eight hundred five zero one seven zero eight zero are you one of those who blame the president for a rod shooting got a commercial jetliner are you one of those who thinks he somehow has increased the hostility between us and Iran that is that is not the case are you one who believe that are you one who walks around believing that he for some reason is starting World War three although he's never been a war hawk he's a he was not a supporter of the Iraq war he's a guy who is restrained in his response to Iraq should be going over drones instead of killing hundreds of Iranians he backed off and said you know what let's not worth killing a bunch of people let's take out one of one of their drones are you someone who actually sat back and believed to that his response was out of control and somehow incompetent or you like be a do you say to yourself you know pretty measured what he's doing could be a whole lot worse but it's pretty measured you're taking out a terrorist that we've been looking for and we've got opportunities before just to do it take him out was smart they should around we know where you are no matter where you are and we can retaliate we can respond no matter where you are that can happen and in fact we just did so the money was not some had a state he was not as Bernie Sanders says some for dignitary he's not as the left says somebody who going after him provokes war because he was a let some for a member of the parliament he was the chief terrorism strategist for Iran the terrorism that is perpetrating with the money that Obama gave them and our president taking him out was the right thing to do because Ronnie shaking in his boots right now so much so that it sent a bunch of missiles over the didn't do anything and then shot down a commercial jetliner they're so out of sorts so whoever was that shot down the jetliner it's their fault his fault shortly Iran's fault for doing it no fault of the president but I really want to know if if some of you have been to convince route trump derangement syndrome and indoctrination this president somehow went from anti war guy to let's go start wars around the world there have been some this week who suggested to me he's doing it as a diversion because this will help him get reelected he's

source of who was responsible to so far so far is there been no reports of American showing up to recruiting branch's role as a result of of these tax however however last night the selective service website crashed it went down okay why they got overwhelmed with heightened searches which of course the agency a tribute to the spread of this was information about about the draft US military conscription was suspended in nineteen seventies of course we don't draft anymore I mean if we had to resume the draft Congress would have to enact legislation to do it into the selective service system they would manage the draft in an emergency if if there was one that was enacted by Congress but if the texter coming from spook phone number then of course the sender is impersonating somebody in the military or somebody else for that matter the text may violate the truth caller ID act last week though this is kind of ironic or points a dental president trump signed into law the Pologne Foon traced back now government regulators can go after robo textures and seek fines for up to ten thousand dollars per violation it could also go after people who fake or spoof calls the law was passed in order to stop spam calls robo calls and texts that are spoofs they even the laws are being passed to cut down on those who wish to exploit fears over war through bogus text that doesn't stop the mocking teasing about those who fear that war will escalate to the point of World War World War now World War three is gone from a hash tag two a symbol overnight in social media circles it is notable that young people our mustering that old emblem World War whatever to express their unconscious fears about the present and in doing this they are reviving a received notion of World War one mostly expended by the generations that preceded them so you know if they've heard grandma grandpa talking about Cold War of the her great grandma grandpa talk about you know Corey or even World War two and even though the draft notices were hoaxes they were very powerful hoaxes okay any were a trick of the meme magicians to raise awareness in the young about their mortality and what may be at stake if we were ever in a world conflict so course this this somehow give a wake up call to a lot of young people lot of young men receive these notices three for about thirty years now World War three is been this anxious fantasy this anxious idea of his in game and during the Cold War the idea of World War three actually became shorthand for a very specific kind of doom global thermonuclear war nuclear destruction mad mutually assured destruction so after the blast comes the fallout duck and cover and so we have all that smoke nuclear winter and then of course all the crops dying we die as well some of us had radiation sickness fallout shelters the the triangles all that stuff and and those who live envy the dead you member of the stores with her kids all of us older people all those old people they call so yeah we are Cold War survivors and we had all that fear and here's the thing the Cold War and the fear duck and cover in our mortal bodies sustaining the radiation all this stuff this is been a powerful medium that is being shared by older generations without the internet to keep it alive and so the younger generations are now getting a taste of Cold War paranoia through social media me magic the idea of with the fantasy of youth or whatever you wanna call the World War three help hide the reality of what war had become basically a tangled mess of state crap profiteering ample and politicking and it was a threat of scorched earth policy in which at mutually assured destruction is allegedly fueled the need to make more weapons such as the weapons we talked about the Middle rat weapons the drones the missiles that all this stuff all the things we spoke about the last show so in the face operation chaos in the Middle East is it any wonder but young people might see the relatively conventional active killing around Iranian military commander is a refuge for political clarity why is it but when this happened there was so much confusion why is it just by some miraculous stroke of whatever Donald Trump speaks this morning and he says we have de escalated the program help you remember two shows ago we discussed this we should be this is gonna go nowhere it's probably gonna be a lot of saber rattling I told that this is all saber rattling now none of this is going to go any further it's going to fizzle out Jack commented that you know here's a situation where trump is boxed in I said it's not trumps character do this what we saw this morning was what trump really does think about it trump is eight negotiator he's a guy that works the crowd and even works these leaders any tells them this is how it is if the generals in the neo cons of wanted lot bombs every time you turn around course you know is that trump has to do something you have to say something else to be presidential and no one is saying okay he's just a major puppet for the deep state he's not sometimes we given the opportunity president trump does good we need to start thinking about that for a moment okay matter bad or buffoon or Clowney or whatever you think of Donald Trump if you give them the opportunity to give that man the opportunity.

conscription was suspended in nineteen seventies of course we don't draft anymore I mean if we had to resume the draft Congress would have to enact legislation to do it into the selective service system VA would manage the draft in an emergency if if there was one that was enacted by Congress but if the texter coming from scoop phone number then of course the sender is impersonating somebody in the military or somebody else for that matter the text may violate the truth caller ID act last week though this is kind of ironic or coincidental president trump signed into law the Pologne Foon traced at now government regulators can go after robo textures and seek fines for up to ten thousand dollars per violation it could also go after people who fake or spoof calls the law was passed in order to stop spam calls robo calls and texts that are spoofs there were no laws are being passed to cut down on those who wish to exploit fears over war through bogus tex that doesn't stop the mocking teasing about those who fear that war will escalate to the point of World War World War now what were three is gone from a hash tag two a symbol overnight in social media circles and it's notable that young people our mustering that old emblem World War whatever to express their unconscious fears about the present and in doing this they are reviving a received notion of World War one mostly expended by the generations that preceded them so you know if they've heard grandma grandpa talking about Cold War of the her great grandma grandpa talk about you know Corey or even World War two and even though the draft notices were hoaxes they were very powerful hoaxes okay and you were a trick of the mean magicians to raise awareness in the young about their mortality and what may be at stake if we were ever in a world conflict so course this this somehow give a wake up call to a lot of young people lot of young men receive these notices for about thirty years now World War three is been this anxious fantasy this anxious idea of his in game and during the Cold War the idea of World War three actually became shorthand for a very specific kind of doom global thermonuclear war nuclear destruction mad mutually assured destruction so after the blast comes the fallout duck and cover and so we have all that smoke nuclear winter and then of course all the crops dying we die as well some of us had radiation sickness fallout shelters the the triangles all that stuff and and those who live envy the dead your member of the stories we were kids all of us older people all the old people that call so yeah we are Cold War survivors and we had all that fear and here's the thing the Cold War and the fear docking covered in our mortal bodies sustaining the radiation a list of this is been a powerful medium that is being shared by older generations without the internet to keep it alive and so the younger generations are now getting a taste of Cold War paranoia through social media me magic the idea of with the fantasy of youth or whatever you wanna call the World War three help hide the reality of what war had become basically a tangled mess of state crap profiteering and pulled and politicking and it was the threat of scorched earth policy in which at mutually assured destruction is allegedly fueled the need to make more weapons such as the weapons we talked about the Middle rat weapons the drones the missiles that all this stuff all the things we spoke about the last show so in the face operation chaos in the Middle East is it any wonder but young people might see the relatively conventional active killing around at Iranian military commander is a refuge for political clarity why is it but when this happened it was so much confusion why is it just by some miraculous stroke of whatever Donald Trump speaks this morning and he says we have de escalated the program if you remember two shows ago we discuss this we should be this is gonna go nowhere is it's probably gonna be a lot of saber rattling I told that this is all saber rattling now none of this is going to go any further it's going to fizzle out Jack commented that you know here's a situation where trump is boxed in I said it's not trumps character do this what we saw this morning was what trump really does think about it trump is eight negotiator he's a guy that works the crowd and even works these leaders and he tells them this is how it is if the generals of the neo cons of white blob bombs every time you turn around of course you know is that trump has to do something you have to say something has to be presidential and no one is saying okay he's just a major puppet for the deep state he's not sometimes we given the opportunity president trump does good we need to start thinking about that for a moment okay no matter how bad or buffoon or Clowney or whatever you think of Donald Trump if you give them the opportunity to give that man the opportunity.

"Had An American can general send a letter saying repairing leave which the department offense is now said was draft in a mistake. Never should have gone out. Are we looking at the. US Redraw oil from Iraq. And if so good thing bad thing pardon me I was thinking about baseball metaphor. F- this one but I I couldn't come. I couldn't come up with went so I'll just directly answer your question. I think that the Iraqi political situation has changed dramatically as a result of what happened last Friday from the beginning of October through December number Iraqis were in the streets demanding a new political system and part of that was they were demanding that the Iranian influence in their country come to the United States was not part sort of these protests. The United States was not even part of anybody's conception of an influential country in Iraq any longer despite huge embassy in unsown and so forth the killing of money has now flipped that narrative around much to the benefit of Shia political parties in ship militia leaders and who are often often leaders of those political parties and even people who we've considered partners of the United States like the now caretaker. Prime Minister have been put in a position where they have to demand that the United States leave it strikes me that now that the opponents of the United States can really framed the terms of the debate the politics they really take off. Now the question of whether it's worthwhile wild to leave Iraq or not I think after seventeen years in God knows how many billions or trillions of dollars spent on Iraq as I said before the country is in terminal collapse. APPS it's chaotic if not for UN. Unless you just there. In December of now for UN agencies and their local partners it really would be medieval in parts of the country country we have American diplomats. Who can't move? We're there to fight isis yet. Our partners in Iraq have done everything possible for a resurgence of Isis. This this dysfunctional government anywhere. You go in Iraq. People say that the central government cannot be trusted. The central government is rife with corruption and graft and Iranian influence in this in time will grow isis once again. We are only partners if there was a partner or the Kurds. But they're quite weak so the question is what is it that we're trying to accomplish in Iraq with regard to a rock. I can understand the fight against the Islamic state or keeping the pressure on the Islamic state but when it comes to Iraq. I'm not quite sure what it is that we're trying to accomplish accomplish their ray would a US departure Marach help or hurt the Iranians ill crystallize a lot of problems that they would have to undertake I think if Iraqi the government today your are in fair to say an impossible position because for a long time you have to try to balance your relationship between Iran and the United States and even mediate the differences between them. You don't have. I suspect that still the direction they want to go. They don't want to be a battleground between the United States any raw and I suspect they're saying that's obviously clearly ready to the Americas but I suspect they're also saying that primarily city arrhenius. I do think there are a lot of relationships that Iraq has with the United States. That are important to it. will in terms of a segue today international national commerce community both in terms of security services both in terms of diplomatic relations bought in the sense that the benefit of having a relationship with the United States so they suspect they don't want to discard. How are they going? I manage this situation if this conflict places self out in Iraq with all this fragile it remains i. It's a it's going to be a very difficult. Balancing Act for government that has not been able to to have effective balancing Aksu history. So they're going to have to do a lot of thinking about this and I do think both the United States and Iran would be wiser not to have their confrontation play soften Iraq Syria because that's collapsed country. How more skin Syria yet? What is a wildcard out? Here is the trump administration has demonstrated straighted whether you're renting is understand that not that attack on Americans via proxies is unacceptable. We'll see if they get. That message remains to be seen what happens if the Iranian regime attacks American proxies Saudi Arabia Israelis can handle themselves. Is that GonNa Elicit an American. What hasn't to this point? We had the attack on the Saudi. Won't it means in this sort of the attack of September I believe on Saudi oil installation actually did result in three things that have not been amplified in the western press. There will sit assassination attempt against General Sulaimaniyah in October. Number of people have gone trump for it. There was an attack on Iranian tanker and the Iranians claimed over subject to cyber tax. Now I don't know who's responsible for those speculation as to who is. I have no idea but the idea that nothing happened. After that strike is not entirely true now fair pointed uh-huh Surf perhaps as a deterrent but if the Iranians attack American proxies with the United States response in the same dramatic way. That's the wild card out. There feel ridden news. One of the reasons Sulamani was going to Baghdad apparently was to talk to Iraqi officials who were serving as interlocutors between Tehran and Riyadh so I guess first question is water people in Riyadh making of all that happened in the last week and are they sleeping better at night or are they staying up later. they're definitely not sleeping better and you read that on the news because the Iraqi prime minister said so and I also came from somewhere. That's good which I think came to. The surprise of a lot of people told that I mean there were plenty of other plausible reasons for Sulejmani to be arriving in Iraqi. Goes all the time but it was weird notion that he was actually delivering a letter in the Saudis involved. I don't know anything independently on that. I do know that the Saudis are staying up at night because they have a lot to lose. And that's actually one of the interesting aspects of this. Is You know the Saudis have been in the forefront of leading the charge for tougher for policies on Iran they welcomed president trump coming in they welcomed the sanctions. Welcome leaving the nuclear deal. They welcome maximum pressure. They've been begging. They were regretful. At Obama didn't stand up enough to the Iranians Manian but this recent escalation including stuff blowing up in their country. You know it tends to concentrate the mind and they have a lot to lose and their neighbors in the emerets a a lot to lose as well. So we're actually. It's it's quite striking. We're hearing noises about the need for de-escalation and calm and outreach and actually has been some outreach with Saudis as an Emirati is and Iranians beyond what there was before so I think they're nervous because they if any of the sort of nightmare scenario we've been discussing playout. They're the ones that's who suffer and in some ways. Iran is more prepared to escalate because they have less to lose in the sense that they're already under massive sanctions. Their economy's mess. They're trying a break out of this thing was the Saudis Camrys for whatever troubles they have. They're selling oil. They're making money. The Saudis are trying to transform their economy. So they're worried and even after the strike in the Saudi the office where I mean ray was rightly talking about this perception that president trump didn't stand up for them. The Saudis were not asking the United States to strike Iran. Because they worried about the collation. Stephen you spent a lot of time thinking about Saudi Arabia. How do you assess what's happening? First of all the Saudis have said that the idea that customs lamantia was carrying some sort sort of message for Iraqi interlocutors. They say that that's not true now. Of course they have no interest in saying it's not true just as much as the Iraqis have an interest in spreading disinformation saying that in fact custom solutions. So it's it's actually really hard to know what is happening. I do think though that the Saudis particularly since the September fourteenth attack on ABC cake and Horace or the two oil facilities dismayed by the American response. The deal has long been that the United States would look after their security not because the United States love Saudis but because oil is important to global prosperity and they have subsequently I think it's clear sought to de-escalate on number a number of fronts. I think what they're hoping right now is and this goes for the Maroney's as well as that whatever blowback comes that it's not in Saudi Arabia and not in the united it Arab Emirates They've been very very quiet on this issue. Of course no not your has been shed in Riyadh for Casa Monica but certainly one of the things that they have have learned from the trump presidency that he speaks very loudly but often he's carrying a very small stick and if that means that's GonNa make them vulnerable they're going to pursue their interests in a way that's different from the United States and try to reach out to to the Iranians. But that's if I might do that is precisely what they're worried about is sort of worst of all worlds that's exactly right from his is making threats and doing provocative things and taking strikes like this but if you really do. That's right America I I you know. I've heard your your your war at one point. He said they they didn't strike us. They start the Saudis right. And I I think the took the Saudis by surprise. This was not what they're expecting when he was elected in November twenty sixteen. And I think we've heard it from as as many Saudis in Emirati that we've been in contact with that this is after the string of episodes since May of two thousand nineteen through the strikes in September that they're very wary wary of the president being provocative and unpredictable because they fear the consequences will be at their doorstep Phil. America's other major ally in the region. That's Israel Israel. How is the strike being viewed from Jerusalem? I think largely positively prime minister. Netanyahu was quick to say we had nothing to do this we. We weren't involved. which makes sense but I think the Israelis have long seen Salamone as just a direct threat to them Hezbollah? They're applauding for the most part and in Europe I have to ask you about Europe. Given the fact assistant insanitary state responsible for Europe the opposite the Europeans are nervous. They're worried about not just consequences for the nuclear deal which they have all supported but the prospect respect not just for general instability but for responses in Europe there have been Iranian plots and Actions that have killed Europeans so they are calling for de Escalation but frankly Jim I think they. They are also feeling helpless. They weren't able to salvage nuclear agreement. They weren't able to escalate. They're on the sidelines. Lesser to take it right now from sort of where we are if you had the opportunity turning to advise the trump administration to advise people who hope to succeed president trump as president. What advice would you give them for how to structure? US foreign policy toward Iran specifically. But I think toward the region more broadly which takes her to the first crack resume. You WanNA maintain contain the maximum pressure strategy. I don't think they have an option but to do that. I do think that the president would have to recognize that. His stated goal of getting involved in negotiations with Iran at this point is foreclosed at least for the remaining year if he gets reelected Iranians. We'll have to reassess that so you think that Theron on strategy right now be to wait him out. They are not at this point. Going to engage in negotiations with the United States. I think over some sort of new arrangement on the nuclear issue that that was always the president stated goal any if he's successful reelection than they have to reassess and what negotiations would look like now where where there is for all practical purposes no longer. JCP to go back to strengthen or whatever the term. Sorry that's going to be. That's going to be one of the challenges particularly as the Iranian nuclear capacity city begins to increase which it has since May of two thousand eighteen. Where every sixty days? They announced another departure in that sense. One consequence of the trump national policy is to move problem. We knew we were going to confront ten years or fifteen years..

"By dough from entering. It was a stunning scene. That is the actual moment when Guido attempted to scale a fence around the National Assembly yesterday a while wearing a well-cut blue suit they got to the top of the tall pointed iron gate but then security men pulled him down as a result a medusa supporter order was elected speaker inside parliament while Guido was later reelected by members of parliament outside really dramatic. Yefimov Zubiaga is head of the Venezuela Zoa Working Group at the American Society Council of the Americas. That's a nonprofit aimed at a better understanding of Latin America. I asked him if one Guido was still speaker of the Venezuelan wayland National Assembly or not. I believe so Michael. I think that he's position was so relevant because he was deemed as the only legitimate democratically chronically elected represent that leader of the institution which was a National Assembly and yesterday we have seen a lot of statements from the international community. Munity saying that. What occur yesterday was you know a sham election that it was impossible for the majority members of the opposition to get into parliament so so far I think Russia has been the only international actor that has accepted the results? I haven't seen what China has said. But you know the European Union. The United States of course also notably other countries in the region like Argentina and Mexico have denounced the procedures that happened yesterday. asked for a free and fair election in parliament. Where do you think the real power lies right? Now because Venezuela has two men claiming to be President Nicholas Nicholas Maduro and Juan Guido and also two men claiming to be speaker of the assembly and one of those is also one Guido. So where's the power. Well I mean and there's two two aspects of power one of course is the de facto power so that lies of Audie in the executive branch in the military. I mean we saw the military yesterday physically. Basically impeding the members of parliament from growing inside the parliament. So that's our right there. However there's the other side of power which is legitimacy international legitimacy and also seems to be increasing on.

The devastating bushfires in Australia are exacting a heavy human toll. At least twenty four people have died since September wild animals have fared much much worse. Some five five hundred million have been injured or killed in the fires. That estimate comes from Chris. Dickman professor of Ecology at the University of Sydney when we reached him today he had this this update. The four hundred eighty million estimate was made a couple of weeks ago and the fires of now burned over a large area of the country that means over hundred million mammals reptiles have been affected by the fires truly a wide It's probably over. A Billion Hidden Dickman has forty years of experience working across Australia. He told the world's Patrick win. Conditions at animals. There are now facing. This really is his unprecedented. I think there's nothing quite compared with the with the devastation. That's that's going on such a large area so quickly it. It's monstrous in terms of job and numbers of individual animals. Affected gives us a better idea not to be morbid but how these creatures are dying are we talking about about actually being burned to death smoke inhalation or starvation. What are the different scenarios here? Despite flames is the is the most obvious and some of the images of Koalas all is bring home. What that's like most vividly at the fire front five thousand talked about the shrieks and Koalas just screams of pain as they as they die? It's his horrendous brothers. Have size in tree hollows Hep stars minute ago. Too deeply underground. Smoking elation will be a real problem for the others it's probably a slow demise species that gal underground and then reemerge after the fires have gone through this really nothing except dash on the surface. So it's very difficult to find resources. Australia is known for. It's just amazing. Wildlife Diversity so are we looking at the extinction certain creatures being hastened by this is I think we are. We know that Australian biodiversity has been going down over the last several decades AK DHS. And it's probably fairly well known that Australia's got the world's highest rate of extinction for mammals. and Vince like this that may well hasten the extinction in process for a range of other species so it's it's a very sad time. What creatures are you really feeling for right now? This is something called the greater glider. It's it's the world's largest gliding mammal. It looks a little bit like camping gizmo from the one of movies some years ago. It's restricted victims the eucalypt forests. It's got a diet. That's even more restrictive than the Koala They'll be cooked in the in these. Fires the yellow bellied gliders will. It's enough stunningly beautiful marsupial. Very well known there again restricted to the U. Clip Florists and they're going to be very susceptible to these to these fires. How have of human beings helped create the conditions for this crisis? What we're seeing is? The effects of climate change sometimes said to that Australia's the collide the canary in the online with the effects of climate. Change being seen here most severely and earliest as well so a would probably looking at climate change my look for many of the parts of the world stages in Australia at the moment professor Dickman. Your demeanor demeanor. Seems very calm but do think it's time for people to freak out and if so what should they be doing in response to this. I think there's a feeling among environmental scientists wanted an ecologist in Australia. We've been frozen out of the the bite certainly out of policy making and think it's now time to bring the scientists back into the tent to look at what is likely to be happening over the next few decades and to think how this week and maintain both the M mm community in in good health and is not bottom. -versities can be retained to this evolving situation. That's Chris Dickman ecologist at the University of Sydney in Australia Australia. He was speaking with the world's Patrick win. Now back to our main story today Iran and the targeted killing of Iranian General Hossam Soleimani. President trump has vowed vowed to target Iranian cultural sites that is if Iran retaliates trump tweeted that the US would hit fifty two sites one for each hostage. Taken in nineteen seventy seventy nine in Tehran and the president said the strikes would be very fast and very hard. There was an instant backlash worldwide because bombing cultural sites could constitute sued award crime. ONA hathaway's professor of international law. Yale would striking cultural sites in fact the illegal yes. It's very clearly illegal under a number number of international laws. The Nineteen O. Seven Hague Convention prohibits hitting cultural sites as does and I think Fifty Four Hague Convention attention on Cultural Property which the US has also ratified and in. Your opinion was an important to protect cultural sites. Well it's the heritage of all mankind and these are not just the possession of the countries that they happen to be in but they're important to all of us these important cultural sites and matter in terms of our defining finding our own humanity so president trump over the weekend said Iran is quote allowed to kill our people and we're not allowed to touch their cultural sites. I mean he was essentially essentially questioning the very premise of this protection. I'm wondering though. Is there a point to be made That humans are more precious than buildings. There's no doubt that humans are more a precious than buildings but this is not a case of are making a choice between the two. What he's suggesting is that if they break the rules and we can break the rules as well but that's not how international humanitarian law works? These rules are in place to ensure the safety of civilians and of our cultural heritage heritage and the mere fact that Iran may have acted in violation of international. Law doesn't mean that we can or should go bombing a set of important important cultural sites in Iran if the US were to follow through on this threat what would be the ramifications. Could trump be tried the Hague or somewhere else. It does appear that if he were to carry this out not only he. But those who participate in the operation would almost certainly be guilty guilty of a war crime under US law In fact it would be possible to prosecute him and anyone who participates in US US court there could potentially be international or crimes prosecution as well although where that would take place a little more difficult because the US is not party to the International Criminal Court. Would that in your view realistically ever happened. I think that it's not unbelievable to imagine that there could be prosecutions of those in the. US Government Mint if they knowingly participate in intentionally participate in intentional violations of The Hague convention whether that prosecution would happen president at hard to say but there's no reason that he should be above the law. If trump ordered the strike. Could the military refuse to carry out the order Knowing that maybe they'd be guilty of war crimes that they follow through puts them in a terrible position. There are two things to be said here on the one hand if someone is prosecuted for war our crime. It's not a defense to say I was ordered to do it on the other hand to refuse an order also put someone in a position of potentially being court court-martialed and so puts individual members of the military and a really terrible position so I hope we don't get there but if we do many are are sending the message to members the US military in those who would play a role in carrying out this attack that if they do so they are potentially subject to war crimes prosecution and that Dave should refuse the order even though that might bring with it some consequences ONA hathaway professor of international law at Yale University. Thanks very much thank thank you so much. It's a tense time for undocumented immigrants in the US even more tense for parents. There's often no way for them to appoint a guardian for their children. If they're detained other states children have been taken inch custody of the stage and then they will be placed in foster care and foster homes so Rhode Island came up with a solution that still head. You're on the world I'm Marco Werman this is the world where a CO production of the BBC World Service W. Gbh Boston NPR rx. The events in Iraq and Iran have overshadowed another major military incident this weekend. Extremists attacked a US military installation on the Kenya. Somalia Malia border and killed three Americans. The world's Lima Conde is following the incident so extremist forces attacking US military base. It sounds a lot like what happened in Iraq last week but this is Kenya. What's going on so Iran does not have anything to do with this attack? The attack was by L. Shebab which is an extremist group in Somalia only a- and the group itself as well as the US military has acknowledged that al-shabaab was behind this attack. al-shabaab has a long history of attacking targets in the area area where the Kenya Defence Force based is located Even last January. They attacked an hotel and I ruby killing more than twenty people so they have a long history of waging attacks in Kenya and Somalia. I spoke with Matt bearden. Who is with the think tank Sahan that focuses on the Horn of Africa? He says Iran is not behind in dead. I think it's highly unlikely. There was any link between the killing of Caribbean Major General and the Shibata attack in Kenya primarily early because an attack of the kind that al-shabaab carried out on Mandalay Bay would have required significant planning preparation. Even just moving the forces into position would have predated the American air strike. So I really don't think these two issues can be linked late today the US Department of Defense released a statement agreeing that Iran is probably not involved in this attack however they did caution that Iran has been trying to increase its influence in the Horn of Africa region..

"He was killed last Friday in a US drone strike in Baghdad in Iraq it was ordered by President trump. The reverberations from souleyman early Monday killing could potentially be enormous for the Middle East. The United States and the world Iran now says it's pulling back from the two thousand fifteen nuclear agreement in in Iraq. The government is taking steps toward demanding that American troops leave the country. We're GONNA start our coverage today with the Wilshire Jafari. Sharon tell us more about what you've been seeing. Mm from Tehran today. Like you said Mark. The crowd in Tehran was huge today. From what I've seen on social media as well as Iranian state media some people have compared impaired the number of people out on the street today to the size of crowd that we saw back in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine when the previous Supreme Leader I Follow Khameini Khomeini passed away and today people were chanting slogans. Were carrying pictures of Awesome Soleil money and a lot of them said they wanted answers from the US so today the general's remains were paraded through Tehran. What do we know about what happens next today? His body was taken to Tehran University. Where the supreme need? They prayed over the coffin. The footage from the funeral shows the supreme neither weeping and what happens next is that solely money's remains will be taken to the the city of on. That's a holy city about two hours drive from Tehran. And tomorrow his coffin will take into his hometown of Cayman and that's where he will be laid to rest. What have you been hearing about why the US carried out this attack? Well we have heard several explanations so far one which was announced pretty quickly on Friday was that the US officials had credible intelligence that awesome so they money was planning attacks against American can diplomats and armed forces in Iraq and other countries in the region. And that this drone attack was about self defense. Are they still offering some kind of information. Information or explanation though the explanation shifted and it turned into will awesome so they money was a bad actor in the region and that over the years he she had ordered or planned many attacks against the US and its partners so so far there are various explanations. And what has Iran been saying about. Its it's response in Iran. One Ward has been repeated in the past few days and that's revenge. Iranian officials have said that Iran plans to respond for sure and maybe even militarily but they haven't given any more details today at the funeral procession Theron simply money's daughter gave a fiery every speech and she said her father's blood was not spilled in vain Ameri Kaba sped on Shahad that's more oh Jeb Guardia beach on Michael. She also said that her father Skilling will bring Iran Iraq closer together and what about Iran's government how they responded they run in government says it will no longer comply with some of the terms of the nuclear deal that it signed with world powers in in two thousand fifteen president trump walked away from the deal last year but to be clear. Iran is still going to let inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency to come in and inspect its nuclear facilities because it continues to be a member of their empty right around still in the nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty. So talk of revenge in Tehran and the US is sending more troops. It sounds like the. US is sending about twenty five hundred Marines to to the Middle East. The Pentagon won't say when or rare these forces are GONNA be deployed at the same time. US says it will pause its operations against as long state in Iraq and in Syria. That's out of caution. For the safety of American personnel NATO has also said it will suspend its mission against Isis Isis. Here's what Jens Stoltenberg NATO's secretary general said today. The safety of our personnel is paramount. A search for the time being suspended our training on the ground who are taking all precautions necessary to protect take our people so both the US a NATO have now paused their operations against Isis. And it's not clear how long that will last. The the Wilshire and Jafari thanks very much for the update problem Markelle next door in Iraq. Tensions are also rising in the aftermath. Sola Monday's assassination. Several rockets landed ended in Baghdad. Last night one in the Green Zone near the US embassy. Those missiles were likely launched by Iraqi militia groups who revered Sulejmani that's according to raise razer. He teaches international relations at Shaheed Beheshti University in Iran and those Iraqi militia is easy says may have bigger plans for retaliation. I think we should expect kind of twofold revenge to come on. That's Irani's talking ability to come in a kind of calculated and not necessarily quick manner but the teams that we are witnessing now in Iraq in terms of for example. There's rocket attacks. Listen these things. This is the second aspect of revenge which is coming from. Goals are group's which considered money as on commander. There's now been a vote in Iraq parliament to expel. US troops. It's nonbinding still. President trump responded with threats for Iraq sanctions and a hefty bill billions means of dollars to repay the US if it has to withdraw. It's troops. So I called. Shams is a member of Iraq's parliament. I reached out to him in the city of Sulaimaniya Iraqi Kurdistan. Can I ask James if he cast a ballot to pull out. US troops no. I didn't participate day boycotted a rejected the whole bill and the whole notion of the take steps toward destroying relationship with United States. So that's something that we do not want that and we want to have a peaceful relationship with birth United States and Iraq. Mrs James I'm in your in the Iraqi parliament. How seriously is the parliament taking trump's threats of sanctions and this giant bill for for? US troops that have served in Iraq that he's talking about publicly threatening Iraq while you are considering Iraq as a partner while you have your soldiers in Iraq fighting Isis alongside Iraqi soldiers and you do not find a diplomatic channel or at least calling the Iraqi prime minister to better understand that bill under steps that the Iraqi government is going to who think just on twitter dispassionate Iraq is getting to be even worse for that relationship with full damage relationship even fed well. US troops are are still in Iraq the prospect though of US troops leaving. Are you worried about your country breaking down further into Shiite Sunni and Kurdish enclaves. Absolutely this is the fear that we are trying to avoid and the this is the consequences of a forceful expulsion of the US forces if it's peaceful it's based off that Marshall Andrew Standing based on request and then we negotiate their represents again through diplomatic channels and by talking to our leaders to do the White House. This is something else but this would the way that is being handled and it looks like the militias at continued to threatening the US embassy and other embassies at the Green Zone that we have most of their for nemeses. There have been bonded every night like last night. We had rockets targeted at the US embassy. This is going to really make Iraq. A war zone and other Syria will really gave rise to radical groups to exploit exploited so with presidents Bush and Obama there was a kind of consistency to their policies. Even if some say those policies were misguided does donald trump confused the Iraqi parliament. Exactly we do not understand Inet states these days. It's very hard to understand United States. We hear something from their diplomats. How much they deal with Iraqi institutions with respect even some of these militia leaders? They had some meetings with the US diplomats but it was expecting Iraq and and ignoring Iraq by the president and Era Iraqi leaders. Not having them in the White House so far not invited to the White House and just Seeing Iraq through the lenses of their anonymity with Iran is really something that we we do not see that the US seem to value of partnership with Iraq. They owned he co about Iraq when there is a crisis with Iran while we have over on interest and we have happened to the West and the north which occurs under Sunnis. They want to have a peaceful relationship with the US and also the moderate southern employees the sheer empties. They also want peaceful relationship with the United States but without accusing Iraq against Iran. This is something we cannot accept and Iraq cannot really taught rate that meanwhile I'm wondering what all of this will mean for the grass us route protesters in Baghdad who've been demonstrating since October. They were very upset as you know with corruption in Iraq. What are their feelings about Iranian influence in Iraq they will they are already starting campaign saying the parliament does not represent me which means that decision yesterday by forceful expulsion of the? US forces does is not representative. Will they know that you an. US is withdrawing when US Iraqi guy scutts out will means more delicious and that means it's all of the gains they had. The reforms is going to be over and there will be no space for peaceful assembly. That's really very sad. And I am in communication with them on daily basis. They are arrogant to take action to do something to save the relationship. Would they night stage for the sake of Iraq but that's really very helpless because just a very few. MP's indirect bottom. They have the courage to publicly. Say That publicly say that we need to save the relationship with the United States but we also need need to start doing a successful negotiation with the United States how to avoid confronting Iran on the Iraqi cycle chums a member of Iraq's parliament.

He was revered military figure who is closely linked to Toronto Network of armed proxy groups across the Middle East and and according to the United States he bore responsibility for hundreds of American deaths in a statement. asper said General Sulejmani was actively developing plans is to attack American diplomats and servicemembers in Iraq and throughout the region. This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans earlier Iraqi militia officials and the country state TV channel announced that Sulejmani had been killed in an airstrike top Iraqi militia leader just outside the country's main main airport. The Iraqi Jamal Jaffar Ebrahimi. Who is better known by his nom-de-guerre Abu Madi Alma Handy's is closely associated with attacks on the US dating back to nineteen eighty to a video circulated by Shiite militia groups showed the crumpled wreckage of the vehicle in which Sulejmani was purportedly traveling accompanied by the sound of whaling? A photograph claim to show his bloodied ash strewn hand wearing the same blood. Red Ring seen earlier photos of him. Alive senior your officials with the popular mobilization forces an umbrella organization of Iran backed paramilitary groups lamented the death in messages circulating on WHATSAPP. May God accept them as martyrs in his vast mercy the chief spokesman of the P. M. F. said a US official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment on the record said the attack was conducted by US drone in struck a two-car convoy carrying Soleimani. And at least half a dozen others. Here's an access road near the Baghdad. International Airport the Iraqi government did not make an immediate comment about the attack despite a long period of increasing tension in between Iran and the trump administration. which has vowed a tougher stance on Toronto support for proxy groups? The attack against such a key figure in Iran security establishment and came as a surprise for many analysts in part because it was seen as likely to ignite a significant Iranian response number two in the weeks since a heart attack put his political future in doubt Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has reignited his presidential campaign. He's now making in a direct and sharp case against former vice president. Joe Biden in the final stretch. Before next month's Iowa caucuses in an interview in Des Moines. Sanders told my colleague Robert Costa that Biden's record and ties to the political establishment. Make him ill suited to defeat trump in November. Sanders urged urged Democrats to value voters appetite for sweeping change over Biden's perceived electability Sanders said quote. It's just a lot of baggage that JOE takes into a campaign which isn't going to create energy and excitement. He brings into this campaign a record which is so weak that it just cannot create the kind of excitement site and energy that is going to be needed to defeat Donald trump sanders focused on biden comes as sanders has recalibrated his efforts in Iowa where the February third caucuses will be a make or break moment for many campaigns. Not long ago few party strategists predicted sanders stood much of a chance at all with attention instead on Biden Mayor Buddha judge and Senator Elizabeth Warren but the seventy eight year old sanders has rolled out a new approach he favors town halls over the raucous rallies that defined his two thousand sixteen campaign. There is a little less talk of revolution. There is far more engagement with minority voters and everywhere he goes. He emphasizes voters anxiety about healthcare costs. If Sanders can pull off a win in Iowa his team believes he would storm to the New Hampshire primary with a burst of meant. wintom then carry that two Super Tuesday whereas campaign has made the California primary a priority positioning Vermont independent for possible long and bruising race against Biden has become increasingly central to sanders planning in part because his advisors see a fight for many of the same voters in the interview Sanders. Sanders said Biden's past backing of military intervention in Iraq would hurt him with young voters. He also cast Biden as part of the political elite cozy with Wall Street and unable to confront major financial institutions because of his support for the bank bailout in two thousand eight. The Biden campaign declined to comment finally number three president. Trump's decision to engage directly with Kim Jong UN was premised on the bet that three decades of US policy failure failures to contain North Korea's nuclear program could be reversed by skipping over lower-level diplomatic talks and starting at the top of its authoritarian regime but nineteen months after the two leaders first summit. The negotiations have broken down along the same. Sticking point past efforts that is how much sanctions nations relief. The United States is willing to offer in exchange for how much of its arsenal Pyongyang is willing to dismantle now. Pressure is mounting on trump to acknowledge college that his strategy has failed and to change course amid renewed warnings from Kim. This week that the north would soon unveil a new strategic weapon which analysts analysts said could mean a long range ballistic. Missile test diplomatic engagement has been dormant for months and the Kim regime frustrated by the stalemate has publicly rejected elected trump suggestion that the two leaders could soon meet for a fourth time for trump. The growing tensions on the Korean Peninsula suggest that Kim is increasingly in the driver's seat as the president has sought to promote his North Korea strategy as a foreign policy triumph in an election year through a flurry of short short range. Ballistic missile tests in the second half of two thousand nineteen and in a lengthy speech on New Year's Eve. The young dictator has made clear. He has continued to prioritize prioritize. The Nation's defense capabilities despite having announced a strategic shift toward economic development in two thousand eighteen in recent weeks trump's critics six including former national security adviser John Bolton and senators from both political parties have faulted his approach and implored him to take additional steps ranging ranging from new economic sanctions to pursuing an interim deal with Kim so far trump has refused to alter his course professing his personal rapport four with Kim remains positive and urging the North Korean leader not to violate that trust his mar-a-lago Golf Resort in Florida trump told reporters. I have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un. I know he's sending out certain messages about Christmas presents and I hope his Christmas present is a beautiful wonderful vs as opposed.
