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

"qassem soleimani" Discussed on KTRH
"Mainstream media seems to be treating the death of Qassem Soleimani little bit differently than some of the rest of us are they seem to be fairly sympathetic towards this guy this burst we described as a terrorist so here's the question now is the rest of America going to react all this media critic and communication professor Jeff McCall joins us it's it's really quite amazing to look at the difference in the in the how this whole thing is being position I even saw one report during my Warsaw I can't run off the top of my head where they're they're showing soul monies funeral and they're comparing it to a truck rally that's a very scary notion let's say I must say watching the coverage of the array intentions of the last week has been a great case study for people over a certain kind of looking at how the media wants to parse things and we know that there is an anti trump you know corner of the mainstream media but this has brought it out in trump card so to speak and you know it the narrative for several years has been from the mainstream media that trump is on hinged he needs a disorganized and he's impulsive and I think when you've got a you know potential military action in the Middle East it just brings all those things you know right to the forefront for the mainstream media to exploit that kind of narrative to make a case that trump is on his disorganized and impulsive and the sad thing I think is that what they are relying on some of the most strident anti trump politicians to help make their case for them because we've seen a lot of Adam Schiff and Chuck Schumer on TV the last few days and we know that nothing that trump does will satisfy them and by the way I want to point out that we don't want any media an independent press serving as a propaganda arm of any administration but having said that we don't want our mainstream media awful to be automatically antagonistic to our current administration or any administration and I certainly don't think we want them being sympathetic to a hostile foreign government by trying to glamorize or you know provide martyrdom for somebody who most I I don't think anybody with any sense is gonna say follow mommy was a heck of a nice guy now whether he should have been taken out or in those circumstances or how do we deal with the after effect is another thing but you know when you have mainstream media outlets like ABC and The Washington Post referring to this solemn money general as revered and then showing all the people were so upset I'm thinking what you know let's face it the Iranian government is certainly orchestrating a response in the demonstrations and our mainstream media are kind of like playing along with that more than they're willing to give trump a break well in in our relationship with Iran at the end but on his bed he's been there since nineteen seventy nine Iran hostage crisis is this just a again another lack of people either knowing history remembering history or revisionist history well I hate to say this but there are a lot of folks in the media and but I hate to bash the media so much but I think we do need to kind of critique and assess and best we can there are some folks who are covering this why don't think have any historical perspective and so you know you've got some of these young whipper snappers on network TV and I'm just thinking that sounds like they just showed up yesterday and that's why it's so important for people who are going to be journalists and reporters to be broadly educated have a deep background and history of political science and government philosophy and I'm not sure necessarily that's happening in today's mainstream media and in terms of who they hire and what not but I must say it is disturbing though when I see media reports echoing Iranian talking points actually the one that came out of the Iranian government that you know follow money was just in Baghdad on a diplomatic mission I'm thinking

know you need context too low understand all that and I'm just not sure we're getting the context and and I think frankly when they put people on the air to talk about this issue they really need to find experts with specific knowledge about that region and I think too many times are putting people on there who were just other reporters frankly or people who are political hacks who don't necessarily understand the broad context in one of the coverage I seen is not that different than what we saw in the Reagan administration where the narrative was always well Reagan's on hinged he's

"qassem soleimani" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"Crime it and we wouldn't be having the conversation about the parts of of these stories. One of one of the scariest things about about reading you know about the story is is not just the predators themselves but it's about the systems that helped enable them to keep on being predators writes in the book about how you went to your bosses at NBC. Be Seeing you said guys I have the story on Havi and that story was shut down and they said Oh. You don't have enough. It's not a good enough story. Why did you keep heap on? Even though many of your bosses told you in the News World Oh there is no story here. We've seen a lot of people go up against their bosses purpose to expose the truth now including after this body of reporting about NBC which revealed a lot of misconduct at that company people on NBC's Airs Journalists. Like Rachel maddow getting up and saying there needs. I mean independent investigation. There were still hasn't happened. Look this was a company with a lot of secrets of its own right. It was a company with a lot of alliances with Harvey Weinstein and I lay out reams of transcripts. Bits of calls that they were secretly having with Harvey Weinstein but the point is not about NBC. The point is this happens all the time and I think the moral of the story is you have to keep going and when sources are as brave as sources were in this story. There was no room for me to be cowardly I mean I. They set the bar really high and I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I failed them. Do you do you think there's been a certain elements of the liberal media being protected by being liberal in a way and I say that because like you look look at the stories that have come out now but Fox News with bombshell the movie loudest voice etc.. The one thing we see there is that at some point Fox that hey we're going to bring in these independent. Investigators is to investigate. What has happened here and get to the bottom of it? All as you said though it feels like the N. B. C.'s of the world haven't been as transparent they've said Oh we'll we'll figure it out but it hasn't become come a real investigation. They haven't gone off to everybody who's been involved and it feels like the accountability hasn't been at as high level. You know you're one of the few who isolates and people writing about this. Do you think that has something to do with it. It's interesting I break stories about Democrats and I get people howling at me on twitter. You know you're you're plant for the right and stories about Republicans and I got the opposite. We live in these silent worlds. Where we're only seeing news? We agree with and people aren't conscious of the fact that sometimes you're just reporting on crimes and those don't have a partisan nature to them and I truly believe these stories that I've been fortunate enough to do reporting on about out sexual abuse. No party this is about corruption. This is about the abuse of power when you when you look at these stories. They must have a common thread beyond just the the person what are the. What are the steps that we could take? What are the moments that people missed where somebody could be held accountable with? Something could have been stopped with. Somebody could have been listened to anything. Will you notice in your reporting. That's where society we're dropping the ball. The story is full of moments where it could have been stopped earlier. You know where people had taped heaped confessions of crimes. And whether they were in law enforcement or they were in the media they decided it wasn't worth the fight doesn't always look like someone twirling their mustaches ashes. Dark Back Room and saying you know I'm GonNa cover up a crime. Usually it's people saying it's really worth a confrontation and all these TV executives. No Oppenheim the head of NBC. News just says point blank to to me at one point you know. Is this worth the fight. GotTa decide if it's worth it. They decided it wasn't so I think the moral of the story is. It's worth the fight..

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.

"You don't agree with that. Well as I've as I've mentioned several times I think they had a lot of blood on his on his hands and I don't think it's unreasonable to think that he was planning other attacks. I see it as merely preemption and I think his killing probably prevented a lot of other other murders around the region. That's what do you think I don't know I mean it's really Again so the money I I'm certainly not shutting it to your For his But again I think I understand where many any people who want due process Who are afraid of what this might unleash? are going to be very hesitant to Be Supportive of of the action Again this is I think no judgment on so the money's character who who we all know As I said has so much blood on his hands but the reality media that this could unleash I think an enormous a number of events In a way that we can't control again and you know the Iranians are really really at the masters of being able to hit out. Soft targets. US there proxy forces to get at You know different military installations and civilian areas I mean we're we're mindful of the fact that we have troops in Baghdad Iraq ourselves Canada That is not nothing. Nothing and another commander. Canada also has commander who leads the NATO mission in Iraq. So you know we are also have to be worried about What this means for our troops for our diplomatic personnel and and certainly for commercial interests in the region? I mean the ramifications of this Maybe enormous I. I agree that ten to Iran tend not to Want to hit directly on. US A soil. I mean there are incidences of them plotting attacks against the Saudi ambassador in United States. But it has generally refrained from that kind of all out hot war And it's areas like Iraq and the Iraqis who are really going to suffer because it will now be the site of a proxy conflict between Iran and the the United States and I think the same will be Lebanon I mean I think Syria there's less potential there only because the Americans are not super active in Syria and it doesn't the had the same kind of visible Kind of attack that it would have in other areas. But that's the kind of snowballing of number of events that again. You just can't put the genie back in the bottle and so will this be a moment to celebrate Again This is this is all of us. Probably not shutting. Cheer for so long because he is You know I think awful person and again has lots of blood on his hands but the unleashing of all of these events is going to be. I think an enormous challenge for all of us in the next coming days months maybe years. Okay let's look in the neighborhood a little bit more. Than what role do you think. Iraq is going to play in the next little while L. and also Israel which is an important player in the region. Right now roy I think the Israelis are certainly certainly happy about this. I mean I think from what I've read they they had plans long in the making about some taking out some money. So they're probably very thankful the Iraqis. Certainly I think you know the journalists that you had at at the top of the segments. He was talking about the fact that a lot of Iraqis are celebrating today. you know. In the past month there have been a lot of protests in Iraq with the Iraqi ordinary Iraqis and saying that they want Iran out of their affairs and I think somebody money was really the key figure in getting involved in Iraqi affairs and making Iraq basically a colony of Iran so I think Iraqi politicians. If they're smart they will use this as an opportunity to basically kicked you out in the throne independence okay. Basma Saint wh-what's roles will Israel and Iraq now play into in terms of the Iraqi government. I think actually the reverse might happen in the case of Iraq Iraq I agree that there are definitely people celebrating. In fact we saw people go out into her square in in In Baghdad celebrating his death and many people will be happy. CBS Iraq but there will be many others who see the money as a hero because he did lead certain forces that fought isis in the north of the country but more importantly only Many of them are quite literally Iranian. Backed militias inside the country. And I think the political pressure on Iraq will be frankly Particularly domestically will be to actually ask Americans to leave and not may include us as again NATO ally of the United States This was scene for Iraqi politicians as you know. Basically the Americans going too far and using their country as a site of a proxy and they are I very afraid of being sucked into regional battle between the Iranians and the Americans so I fear it might actually make the long term stability and what we. Oh when I see. which is you know? Iraq become a more pro-western country. Frankly you know the opposite might happen. It's clear about some of the pretty clear that the Canadian government I didn't know anything about this attack being carried out. What do you think Canada's response should be? Well I think first and foremost Preserve Canadians and Canadian. Assets and Canadian Forces inside the country is our number one. I think You know response. It's going to have to be our number one priority But I think it's going to be difficult for Canada to come out. Publicly in support of this It is an extra judicial killing and there are a lot of people who I think are are going to be pointing out that this was not done to the standards of international law. Although the Americans will argue that you know by designating him a the terrorists by American law that really just frankly Made him a legitimate target Nevertheless there's going to be a lot of questions about procedures and laws I can see where many may not feel that Selemani deserves the right to have you know international lobbying used in defensive him Certainly because he's done everything to undermine all liberal. You know values of human rights throughout the region but nevertheless I think can't is in a tough spot what and really needs to just focus on making sure its troops and its assets and Canadians. Who are there are are actually safe So I I agree with with much which of that I think Canada's first priority should be ensuring that our citizens and our soldiers are protected longer term though I mean. This is the point that I've made many times in this context context and others Canada and the Western world ought to be thinking about how to remove the Iranian regime from power Costume so they outs and I think overall I would argue. That's a good thing but somebody else has already been named in its place and it will probably be the person. I don't know him well but I I suspect he will be equally murderous and equally Malevolence and this problem will not be solved. So long as the Iranian theocracy holds power. I think Canada in the West to be thinking about how to change this regime and replace it with a democratic mccracken. So what are you watching for. Next thing I think the Iranian reaction certainly in terms of whether or not they're going to carry out any attacks and I'd be curious to know You know when President Trump speaks about this next how he justifies us in. What the internal battle in the United States will be among among the two parties to sort of how the understands? Okay all right. That's my last word to you. What are you looking for next? Yeah I agree. I'm Kinda looking at what's going to happen in Washington because I think this is an election year. We're seeing a number of Democrats Democrats you know trying to You know square this altogether. What's what's the Legitimate reason for this is going to be a question Much debate Trump you know is using a very old authorization of the use of military force to Jim. Is this again Lots of procedural Israel legal issues International lawyers are going to be very worried And I think many people in the region are going to be worried about how Iran lashes out on whether it's soft targets commercial interests and all things that may be perceived to be you know American Inspired and not you know is unfortunately via very long list of places and people and so. It's a dangerous time in the region for sure. My thanks to both of you for your insights today. Thank you so much learn.

Twenty percent of the Iraqi will lay right now they are had had before killing this so they money and I will matt the the rest of the people who got killed in this airstrike the rest of the Iraqis. They are very sad and confusing and the start reading this morning to do The necessary are- bound or the re answer to this track on the American soldiers who are stationed in Iraq. Well how was the government of Iraq responding. Has it said anything Yes yes they did. Send a statement this morning and they were they were saying this. Is this airstrike in vaulting often Iraqi constitution institution and. They should not do that. And what are you hearing from Iran. Today what is Iran's saying is there any sense of what Iran might do Iran as you know Iran have they tools in Iraq as they know. There's some really. She has backed by Iran Iraq and those militia has a stock doc the reading this morning by answering for the death of a for Sulejmani and nobody Mahinda so they did say we. We will answer to this airstrike on the American soldiers who stations in Iraq supporters Verani militias had actually stormed the US embassy in Baghdad earlier this week and then backed away yesterday. Is there anything happening at the. US Embassy right now at the at the moment Nothing happened. That is I think there was a joint qualified from there from Iraqi forces and the coalition forces in Iraq requesting that Iraqi Special Forces the one who trained by American Special Forces to surround the embassy in Baghdad. So they will keep The brought Rochester's away from the embassy. Can you tell. Can you tell us who who who was. General Qasim ceremony.

Can you tell us what you you're watching for for the next that is an a new player from Iran is warming up right now to come to the land of Iraq to the Iraqi soil. Because as you know that is a lot of interest from Iran to Iraq and right now the situation is confusing. Because you don't know what's going to happen and the next few days Shabat militias in Iraq. They will they are very heavy with weapons and not dimension there's a US army in Iraq. Bebo here in Iraq. They just don't want the fight inside Iraq. According to due to the political views or opinions still unknown because Kasichs away money will be shipping to his country three to Iran.

And it's still uninspected to see what's GonNa Happen in the next few days all right. I'm Ali thank you very much for talking to us. You are more than welcome. Amara Lee is a freelance reporter in Baghdad for more on how this may affect the stability of the region. I'm joined by two guests. Best Mamani is a professor of political science at the University of Waterloo and a senior fellow at the Center for International Governance Innovation. She's she's in Waterloo Ontario and catfish is a senior fellow with the MacDonald. Laurie Institute's Center for advancing Canada's interests abroad. He is in our Toronto Studio. Hello to you both. They let me start with you. What is your initial reaction to the killing Well first of all it caught me by surprise I think it caught. Everybody by surprise is I think lots of people on the kind of untouchable Military Commander So I was. I was actually amazed that the ability of US intelligence to find out where or he wasn't to attack him I you know personally felt a sense of relief. I mean I've followed his career with some interests over the years and I know that he's had had a role in Mass murder In Syria He's played a very serious role in Iraq and Lebanon and and certainly the You Know Revolutionary Guards that he was a part of our really corrupt and violent force in Iran. So I was happy about that but I think I I share a sense of worry and trepidation with with many others. Because it's it's hard to know what's the come that's not. What was your first reaction when you heard the news Similar to cover. But I would say that I think Many of us had had always wondered if Americans could take out such a high profile leader and so many times apparently Americans were close Or actually many cases decided not to take him out according to some You know insiders Because of what they would fear might be the Ross of what to come after that. But I I think he's a significant figure. I think it's really hard to Just here His name to those who don't know the region And just think he's you you know someone they probably never heard of. But for many of us who do follow the region We know his footprint is indeed throats many of the hot spots And certainly I think agree with Kava has a lot of blood on his hands and has been involved. In much of I think that destruction we see throughout the region but at the same same time too many hardliners inside Iran and even outside the country in places like Iraq and others were really buy into this kind of revolutionary zeal. There is a hero You know a very important figure almost a spiritual level that has been assassinated. And so this is really going to. I think unleash the very worst of many actors in the entire region and of course we are already seeing huge rallies on the streets of Tehran and other cities in Iran on the cover. Why has his death costs such a strong reaction? Well I think the crowds you see marching in Iran or Supporters of the Iranian regime. Derailing regime is not a very popular one. But it's not without some pockets of supports And basically every dictatorships can on occasion rally the troops and get some people out I think the reason why you see these crowds the pro Iranian regime krause's because silly money was a pivotal figure. It was a critical figure for for the running government He was an you know I i. I made this point earlier I to my mind. He was a moral monster but by all accounts he was. He was a very good Military strategists He was excellent what he did and he managed to portray some of his actions along nationalist line saying that he was protecting Iran from outside forces. And I think that's probably the reason while you see this kind of outpouring of emotion now best when the United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is saying today that that the risk of doing nothing was enormous. That an attack. That they disrupted disrupted an imminent attack Do you accept that that was true. Why was he such an important target for the United States? Well the Americans are claiming That that Sort of money was up to Planning an attack on. US forces inside Iraq and that may have been the case. But you know I think history we'll tell of course how this all unleashes and I think you can hear from. Both of us were very worried about what's going to come next in terms of the reaction of all of these proxy forces sources throughout the region the Iranian government of course And I think We are looking at a potential snowballing of a number of events throughout the region. That you just can't dial back and so there is going to be. I think a lot of celebration on you know privately particularly in many Middle East countries where including around of course Where the I. R. J. C.? alumini has you know been absolute disaster And and again has had so much blood on his hands but the unleashing of events that is before us I think is something no one knows and History will tell whether or not this. This was a necessary move. Well we know. Cover that that are that Iran is threatening retaliation. What form do you think that could take so? Iran is not without certain certain options I mean as Bettman noted that has proxy forces throughout the region so it can certainly get its proxy forces to carry out some Violent acts They can attack Americans or foreigners not necessarily Americans throughout the region or elsewhere in the world frankly because let's force that's so they money. headed ended up. It had tried to carry out actions in places outside the region Iran has a particularly strong cyber army. Where tries to disrupt some you know? Internet activities titties around the world. That can certainly do that. we can try to attack US embassies in US diplomats around the world So it's not about options. I I would say and I certainly understand the worry. That's out there But I think what you need to understand about. The Iran regime is first and foremost attention self-preservation it talks about being a religious government and ideological but at the end of the day the clerics run the country the are interested in preserving their power And I think they Will probably retaliates but they are also concerned sort of not letting this get out of hand. I think they've realized now. The trump and his administration mean business and that they can't cross certain that the runnings can't cross certain lines because they will meet Arrive Swift and vicious response. Well there are those who are criticizing the trump administration for for exercising. This this attack. What some are calling an assassination saying reckless? I gather..
