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

"Okay so too US officials have now confirmed and PR that more than twenty Saudi students in the U. S. for military training are getting sent home after a security review that review took place after a deadly rampage last month that was carried out by a Saudi flight training at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola Florida here's more from NPR's Bobby Alan after a Saudi national shot and killed three young sailors at a naval base in December all Saudi officer studying in the U. S. came under the microscope there are a hundred and fifty of them federal authorities suspended their training in order to conduct the investigation national security adviser Robert o'brien says the expelling of the students back to Saudi Arabia shows the trump administration is being extra vigilant about possible insider threats he was talking the fox news Sunday and I think we're being very careful obviously Pensacola show that there had been errors in the way that we've added to the Saudis who are being expelled raised a number of concerns among investigators one US official told N. P. R. some of the Saudis are being removed because the view child **** other Saudi trainees failed to alert authorities about the shooters extremism and some of them were involved in extremist online chat rooms that's according to a second US official in Saudi Arabia this will likely come as unwelcome news that's according to Daniel by men he's a professor at Georgetown University school of foreign service in a Middle East expert they don't like public comparison still having these individuals be expelled happen it make the news is not something that the Saudi B. she wants the expelling of the Saudi students arrives just as the region is on edge following the American drone strike that killed Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani by men says expelling the students could make a precarious situation with Iran even more uncertain at if there's going to be pressure on Iran if it's gonna be military strikes on around it's going to be efforts to do diplomacy with Ron no matter which direction the United States wants to go in Saudi Arabia is going to be important for that some members of Congress have been calling for a review of how the US screens foreign nationals before they train alongside American military personnel Pentagon officials value these military exchange programs because they help the U.

L. A. I and I heart media the Lutheran hour bringing Christ to the nation's god performs spiritual judo dojo of grace find out what that means as Dr Michael Ziggler talks about god is merciful martial art at the cross of Jesus god took the aggression of evil and he flipped it on its back when you are baptized into the death and resurrection of Jesus god begins to work this merciful Marshall he is putting to death this in you so that the can come to a doctor's declares messages titled mercy in this and just hello I'm mark I sure thanks for making the Lutheran hour part of your day and we wish you guys love peace and joy in this new year of bringing Christ to the nations and the nations to the church thank you for your faithful support now here's our speaker Dr Michael Ziggler I didn't get too deep into martial arts but I did spend a little time in a dojo Joe Joe is a Japanese word it means the place of the way a doe Joe is an immersive learning space where a martial artist practiced martial arts like judo for example I've learned that a principle that stands behind judo is that the best offense is a good defense judo in Japanese means the gentle way and you always call the gentle way because its practitioners rather than being aggressive use the aggression of their opponents to defensively defeat their attackers for example is someone pushes you when you take the force of the push and you you turn it into a throw you use the strength of the aggressor against them now hang with me but when I listen to the book of genesis I see god the god of Abraham doing something like divine Judeo he is using the strength of his opponent to defensively defeat the opponent who's the opponent who is god's opponent remember the mysterious serpent from genesis chapter three now we're not told exactly what he is or why this snake can talk but we do know at least two things first we know that he is god's creature and therefore he's under god's authority and power like the rest of creation and second we know that somehow he has contorted himself to become gods opponent and likewise when he deceived Adam and eve they became contorted into god's opponents but god father that he is refuses to treat them strictly as opponents instead he treats them like waiver children but he declares war on the serpent he says to the Serb and he that is evil offspring he will crush your head and you will strike his heel god declares war between eve's offspring and the serpens offspring now what does that mean more with the serpent's offspring what's got talking about is he talking about stomping out the next generation of baby snakes off thanksgiving the release to but talking about snakes what's he talking about then we get a clue in genesis chapter four Kane eve's first offspring becomes jealous of his baby brother Abel Abel's the golden boy Kane is angry because he thinks god playing favorites with able and Kane is filled with jealousy is filled with malice he's filled with venom against able and against god he becomes god's opponent and god warns him he says Kane sin is crouching at your door and its desire is for you I've been there you've been there you know that's like to be resentful of someone who gets privileges that they haven't worked for you know what it's like to be jealous of somebody who gets perks they haven't earned you know what it's like to be resentful and angry and even murderous towards another human being you know what that's like because you have been bitten by the snake I saw why we've become gods opponents no maybe that is strange idea you to think of yourself to see yourself as god's opponent I'm not against god I haven't murdered anyone we don't have to be a murderer to be gods opponent see the only thing the servant has to do to to turn you against god is to get you to believe to get you to believe that you'll get to decide what is good and what is evil for you and then the serpent he can get you to pursue what you think is good for you and to be proud when you think good things come to you and to be angry and bitter wind evil things come to you and resentful when good things go to other people that's all the serpent has to do to turn you against god see we become gods opponents when we stop trusting god to be the judge of good and evil for us we become gods rivals and we on wittingly sometimes we attack god's good order and harmony and his creation and that's why god does this divine Judeo against us I was talking with a friend about this analogy between god's way in judo and he said that the better analogy is Akiko ice okay tell me about a key I don't know anything about Akito well turns out Akito is a little like judo you use the force of the attacker against them but Aquino is distinct because Aquino is concern for the well being of the attacker in a key you take measures you take steps not to hurt the person who's attacking you you you immobilize them you neutralize them but you are concerned about their well being and I said that's right that's what god does the US yes you guys doing to you because you are gods enemy but it's not use so much as it is sin inside of you you've been bitten your nature my nature all human nature has been so corrupted in ingrained in sin that we become enemies of god by association and so what Scott gonna do how is he going to crush the serpent in you and still save you he has some kinda divine Jude or a key or whatever you wanna call it some kind of merciful martial art he sent his son to where the human robe to wear our flesh to become our flesh to be calm sin and god damned sin in our flash in the crucifixion of Jesus and god when he raised Jesus from the dead he gave his spirit so that we could become his children so that we would trust him so that we would say like Jesus not my will but then I will be done the cross.

"Us. Just got a response from house speaker. Nancy Pelosi to this action shen tonight by the trump administration the US Department of Defense saying that it was a US military strike that killed the leader of the coulds force in Iraq. Customs Sumani Pelosi statement not only response to that announcement from the trump administration. It also answers a key question that a lot of us have been trying to report on tonight right which is a question of whether or not the. US Congress was notified ahead of this strike given its import cases like this. You might or might not expect the entire Congress to know that something like this was going to happen in advance but you would into normal circumstances. Expect the so-called gang avait to be notified. That's the top leadership of the House and the Senate and the intelligence committees. You'd expect notification there. Nancy Pelosi making clear in the statement. Tonight that hasn't happened. Quote American leaders highest priority is to protect American lives and interests but we cannot put the lives of American servicemembers diplomats and others further at risk by engaging and provocative and disproportionate. Actions Tonight's airstrike. Risks Provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America in the world cannot afford to have tensions escalate. To the the point of no return the administration has conducted tonight strikes in Iraq targeting high level Romanian military officials and killing Iranian coulds force commander Customs Sulejmani without an authorization for use of military force against Iran further. This action was taken without the consultation of Congress that answering a question that many of us had tonight. Pelosi concludes quote the full. Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the administration including the significant thicken esscalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region again after there were demonstrations and an attack and some fire set at the. US Embassy complex in Baghdad earlier this week the US military announced that one hundred Marines one hundred additional marines would be sent to the Baghdad embassy complex to protect it and that seven hundred. I'm fifty troops. From the eighty second airborne would be sent to Kuwait to nearby Kuwait essentially to function as a rapid reaction force in case they were needed in in Iraq Speaker Pelosi noting that the administration made these strikes against Iranian military officials without authorization from Congress is a confirmation of something. The thing we figured was true her saying that Congress was not notified. Presumably means that includes the gang of Eight. which would include herself? That would be a departure from past practice. Joining us now is treated policy is the executive vice. President of the Quincy Institute for Responsible. Statecraft treat is a founder of the National Iranian American Council all. He's written several books on America's relationship with Iran. His latest is losing an enemy Obama Iran and the triumph of diplomacy Mr Parsley. Thank you so much for being with US tonight. I appreciate making time driving. Let me just ask you an open question about your reaction to this news tonight. I know you've been following this news. Says we have as it's come in. Well it's somewhat similar to some of your previous guests in the sense that it's really difficult not to see this. As an act of awards is really difficult not to see how this will escalate further. It's really difficult to see how the US government has any idea of of how it will be able to prevent that escalation. The Pentagon statement said. This was aimed at deterring further attacks but so was the previous US attack and the previous ones before that in each and every case we have seen that these measures actually have led to further escalation. Rather within the Esscalation I don't think the. US government expected that the attack on the Iraqi militia that killed fifty would lead to the attack on the embassy yet. It did and now we have this attack against disaster nation of what your previous guests said was the number two person in Iran. What escalation does the? US government expect it. Come from this. What preparation do they have? And what are they actually doing to be able to deescalate it to ensure that it doesn't lead to something as big as a full-scale scale war as it very well may do so. There's a lot of question marks as to whether the trump administration has thought through. It has nothing to do whether Soleil money he is a good guy or a bad guy or anything like that. It has to do what happens next. And that's the part. I'm most worried about that. I don't think the US government is truly ready for it if this was an active war if we should see ourselves as in a state of war as we heard from Brett mcgurk moments ago which you just referenced What do you think Americans should expect about what a war between Iran and the United States is like what will Iran consider among its range range of possibilities in terms of how to respond next what they will consider to be proportionate or whether they will in fact seek a disproportionate response as revenge judge? I think we'll sit earlier is probably quite correct that I don't think the Iranians are like GonNa Russia's I think they're going to be consulting with the Russians and the Chinese to try to gauge their reaction to what a response Iran may be considering. I think they will likely do something that will surprise us in the sense John Stott. I was part of those who are trying to figure out what the Iranians are going to do towards In reaction to the trump administration trying to push down their oil exports to zero zero. I did not expect that type of attack on Saudi facilities that have been attributed to Iran by the US government. So I think they may very very well surprise. But I think if this leads to a full-scale war I think the calculation on the Iranian side is going to be that their ability to be able to it. Come out of that. War is inflict as much damage as possible on the United States in a short period of time in order to break the American will and if you have vist Aarp which award is taking place did not get approval from Congress may end up not being particularly popular with the American public than that strategy may have some the prospect of success but it would mean that a lot of people are going to die on both sides and that's not something that has happened to the US. Since the Vietnam War. Because I I think we're talking about casualty levels much beyond we've seen in Iraq and Afghanistan you would see. US FORCES ABROAD FORCES IN IRAQ US forces in Afghanistan as the initial targets for those kinds of attacks or do you think that Iran's reach and their ambitions in that kind of a worst case scenario would extend geographically further even to the US is homeland. I've not seen any evidence that they have the capacity to do so but I'm not privy to the intelligence that would be able to assess as to whether they do or not art from the US side. But I do wonder if that would be a step to the Ranas would be cautious about because if they were to do anything on. US soil then. I think they would change. The nature of this conflict from one in which a lot of Americans would start seeing this as a defensive war and that's a completely different ballgame. I think that would be a step. That they probably recognize would backfire on them if they did but at the same time. I don't think they had the expectation that Sulejmani would would be assassinated i. I'm sure that they knew that he was a target. But I'm sure they also understood on numerous occasions. The probably did have the capacity to assassinate. SONATE him chose not to do so precisely because the US didn't want to escalate and they didn't expect that now. The trump administration actually did want escalate. Thanks Dr Treated the Executive Vice President of the Quincy Institute author of losing an Enemy Obama Iran and the triumph of diplomacy Dr Parsley. Thank you so much for being with US tonight. I really appreciate it. Thank you all right ahead. Some more new reporting on on what the US military is doing tonight now that they have confirmed this strike. Live report there when we come back. Stay with us since the news first broke tonight on Iraqi television of all places that Iran's uh-huh top military commander had been killed in Baghdad a household name in Iran the leader of Iran's militia and covert operations around the world. Since that news first broke tonight we have been counting on Cordy Kuby National Security Pentagon correspondent for NBC News for Leading Edge reporting as this continues to develop particularly now that the Defense Department has has put out a statement acknowledging responsibility for this strike. Courtney thanks for being with us. I know it's been a very very busy night. It has what's the latest in terms of the US military response. We've certainly heard the Defense Department statement claiming responsibility for this. Do we know anything else about how the military is potentially Ashley preparing for retaliation. So they're obviously shoring up their installations and locations all over the region but specifically in Baghdad. What they're doing right now is looking at the possible threat streams so what specific threats there are two? US military and diplomats to Americans in Iraq and in the region. And also. Don't don't forget there's a over six hundred Americans in Syria right now. It's a much smaller footprint than what the US had there not only several months ago. So they're looking at any potential Henschel vulnerabilities and how they could potentially shore them you mentioned earlier in the show that the US sent these roughly seven hundred soldiers from the eighty second airborne. These are the quick quick response to the Global Response Force soldiers to Kuwait to be there and ready. Should they need them. It wouldn't be surprising. If we see additional deployments to the region for for additional quick reaction and Response Forces. Should they be needed but right now in Baghdad. They're looking at what. The potential vulnerabilities are for us. Troops and diplomats Matt's in the country and trying to figure out how they can address them immediately and coordinate. Is there any sign that the US obviously this is a US military action and so the US military. We knew they were going to do it. Even if Congress didn't and the the other side didn't is there any indication that that the US military took steps to harden targets forgets to up our force protection levels or to pre position assets in advance of this strike anticipating that there would be a quick need to take care of US forces around the region in response to the killing. So that's actually some this exact question that I've been asking since we got all this confirmed tonight because it hasn't made sense to me why they sent the the battalion of the eighty second airborne to Kuwait in the first place after Benghazi you'll remember that the US military established what the Marines call a special a special purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force Special Purpose Mag Taff specifically for what the what we saw happening in Baghdad. where an embassy was this was under threat? It's called crisis response. And you know after Benghazi. They have these marines that are stationed throughout the region in in Europe mainly Finley. That are quick reaction if there is an embassy threat it made sense to send the MAG taff guys in the one hundred marines for the embassy. But why did they send the seven hundred hundred additional and I've been asking that question all over was it because they knew this was coming the US military the circle of people who knew that these strikes were coming against Gaza Solo on Lien..
