Johnnie Moore on the Looming, Disastrous Iranian Nuclear Deal 2.0

"Johnny, thank you for joining us. So you're kind of an expert on international religious freedom. And you also have been following what's happening in Vienna right now with the Iran deal where the Russians are kind of like the intermediaries. Is that right? Yeah, I don't think Americans really realize what's going on in Vienna. I mean, stop to think that while all of this is happening in Ukraine, the deputy foreign minister of Russia has been negotiating what they say is going back into the run deal. It's actually a whole different deal altogether. But it's not even a negotiation, Charlie. The Americans haven't even met with Iranians. They meet with the Russians, the Russians go talk to the Chinese and the Iranians. They go back to the Americas. They tell the Americans back and forth. It's a gigantic charade. It's a disaster, people don't really realize how catastrophic this is. So the first Iran deal was really bad. They said it, the way that the Obama regime spend it spun it, whatever. Was that they were saying that this prevented Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, but we know that wasn't true. Trump canceled it. What is this deal? Yeah, and what the Biden administration said, because by the way, the deal wouldn't have even gotten a vote in the Democrat controlled Congress. It was so unpopular. So in order to get this moving, President Biden said, well, look, we'll go into the old deal and then we'll have a longer, stronger deal. Congress Democrat control Congress didn't even believe the president. So in the last year, they passed a bill that requires that the negotiating teams submit what they're talking about to Congress. Biden's ignoring all of it. The White House is ignoring all those whatever they want. Yeah, and what we understand about this deal is that it relieves they've been relieving a lot of sanctions on Iran, but they basically really the rest of them. They take sanctions off of all these terrorists, including the people responsible for the bombing and the Jewish community, 30 years ago in Argentina. They actually may even take the revolutionary guard off the terrorist list. The IRG, right? That was led by Soleimani. And so what will happen? If this deal passes, we're going to see more terrorism from Iran. We will see Iran kidnap more Americans. We're going to see the Middle East at the first moment where we actually have peace in a generation inflamed again with Iranian

What Everyone is Missing From the Doocy/Biden SOB Exchange

"So Joe Biden was doing his press conference. Peter doocy did what Jim Acosta and Caitlyn Collins did on a daily basis, which was continue to ask questions after they were dismissed. And Peter ducey's illegitimate journalist. I don't even know if Peter douche is a conservative truly. I think he's just a moderate like journalist, honestly. I have no indication whatsoever. And anyone that knows him that he's some sort of right winger. He just asks questions, he does his job. He wants to hold powerful people accountable. So he asks Joe Biden. Like, hey, how about inflation? Listen to this tape and listen carefully, we're going to play it twice. Play tape. That's a great asset. More inflation. With a stupid sound. So what people missed and what Joe Biden said there is what a stupid son of a blank. Thank goodness Joe Biden isn't Napoleon and he can just execute people at a whim. So I think Joe Biden would have just turned to some sort of French revolutionary guard and Peter doocy's family would be murdered. I'm kidding, okay? He'll just be audited instead and his home will be rated like James. O'Keeffe. Instead, but listen to what he said. Let's get the transcript of that, right? So the transcript with hilarious that made it into the it made it into The White House official record, which is hilarious. So do C says, quote, do you think inflation is a political liability before the midterms? And before Joe Biden said the thing that everyone was capitalizing on is the thing that should be on billboards everywhere, Joe Biden said, quote, no inflation is an asset. More inflation. Now maybe he was being sardonic or sarcastic. I don't think so. I think Joe Biden said something that he believes. I think Joe Biden in a off the cuff unscripted moment just told the country in his back and forth as little duel as little rivalry with Peter doocy. I like inflation. I know what it's going to do. It's going to bring the great reset in pal, you stupid son of

"News story out of Iran is that the Revolutionary Guard. They've inaugurated a new underground missile facility that was intended designated for missile storage reported by state TV. I mean, so there are transparent to that extent. On by the commander of the Revolutionary Guard who we first met when I say we, the United States first met with the embassy takeover. In November of 1979. He said the cruise and ballistic missiles will empower the forces Navy even more. They had a TV report that showed footage of scores of missiles in an enclosed space resembling an underground corridor. And they claimed that these missiles contractual 2000 kilometers, which is 1200 miles Um, placing much of the Middle East, including Israel within range, and I'm not mistaken. There was a bit of a dust up today. I think that Iranian forces Struck a U. S military base in Syria. And I think there was a little bit of a problem over the weekend with with an oil tanker in the strait of her moves. It just seems that they're just spoiling for a fight. Even even again. You know, a few weeks after we've have have resumed participation in these talks. Am I missing something? When the the Washington has, uh has had talks to try and re enter the J C P away, but it has not yet done so on. It is requesting certain focus and understanding from Iran before doing so we'll have to see Where Iran takes it.

Biden orders airstrikes in Syria, retaliating against Iranian-backed militias

"For the first time since he was inaugurated president. Joe biden tonight has ordered. Us military strike the pentagon says. The president ordered airstrikes in syria around six. Pm eastern time this evening. This is the statement that we got announcing the start from pentagon. Press secretary. John kirby he said quote at president biden's direction. Us military forces earlier this evening conducted air strikes against infrastructure utilized by iranian-backed militant groups in eastern syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against american and coalition personnel in iraq and to ongoing threats to those personnel specifically. The strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control. Point used by a number of iranian-backed militant groups this proportionate response was conducted together with diplomatic measures including consultation with coalition partners. More on that in a moment The operation sends an unambiguous message. Statement continues president biden will act to protect american coalition personnel quote. At the same time we have acted any deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern syria and iraq. like that statement tonight from pentagon. Press secretary john kirby announcing these us airstrikes eastern syria now in terms of what these air strikes were in response to this month in iraq. There have been three rocket attacks publicly reported in the space of a week the most recent one targeted the us embassy in baghdad. That was three days ago to rockets fired in that attack fell inside the green zone that heavily fortified area around the baghdad embassy there were no injuries From those two rockets on saturday it was four rockets that had hidden air base north of baghdad. That injured one person but last monday it was a more. A more consequential attacked. It was a dozen rockets last monday. That struck the usually peaceful northern iraqi city of bill that killed that attack killed one american civilian contractor and wounded nine other people including several americans at the air bill airport now it has been widely assumed that it was iranian backed militias that were behind these rocket attacks. Iran has denied any direct responsibility but the attacks have been seen in in many quarters as a way of sort of testing. The waters with the new administration should also be noted. That president biden took office just days after the one year anniversary of the us killing. Iran's top revolutionary guard general and a missile strike. Something iran has promised to take retaliation for the other context. That's important here. Of course that the biden administration just a week ago announced that they're ready to hold talks with iran on possibly reentering the nuclear deal that was designed to keep iran from becoming a nuclear power. That was the deal that president obama entered into with iran. That president trump pulled out of as we've been reporting the story trying to understand the scale of these airstrikes night. We have just gotten some tape from the brand new defense secretary. lloyd austin. He spoke with reporters on a flight back to washington. He had been visiting. Us military facilities on the west coast. This was on board the plane back on route to the. Us's coast a target that we would after we know what we get and and we're confident that that target was being used the same shia militia that That conducted the strikes. You're very deliberate about our approach as you would expect this to be You're allowed to it. Occurs the iraqis to investigate develop intelligence and very helpful to us and refining target. You i was season was my recommendation We said a number of times. We will respond At you know on our time line and once again we wanted to be sure that the connectivity and wanted to be sure that can't the right dr sites it was today. Yes issue one defense secretary. Lloyd austin that's tonight we just got in that tape moments ago. Speaking about the first military operation of the biden administration. these airstrikes on iranian backed militias in syria. The administration says they are response to rocket attacks that targeted u s and coalition forces in iraq. You just heard Defense secretary austin there say that it was president who authorized these strikes And he did so this morning per the defense secretary's read out to reporters tonight joining us now. For more is nbc's chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel richard. I didn't expect to have you back on the show so soon after talking with you last night on a totally different matter Joining us on short notice tonight to help us help us through this. Not not a problem. And i was speaking short while ago with a senior. Us official with direct knowledge of this This was a a message to iran and iranian backed militias. According to this official. And the message was that the united states will no longer tolerate harassment will no longer tolerate attacks rocket attacks missiles attacks and particular the attack on your bill of earlier this month was seen as something of a watershed moment so this was a a message. That times have changed that. Even though the president biden wants to negotiate with iran this administration does not want to be bullied does not want to be pushed around is not going to accept the Increased military action that put us personnel and allies at risk. So this was. This was a strong message. It was described to me as the The carrot the stick in the carrot and stick of diplomacy and deterrence that the. Us is offering the carrot. They wanna get back to talks but they also are using the stick for the for the first time today and sending this message. The target that was hit was described as a series of buildings that were used to supply and support these different militia groups. A kind of a border crossing area on the border between syria and iraq. the militias. That operate in this in this area do often cross the border. The fact that the strike took place in syria is also significant. It take some of the pressure off of the government of baghdad. So this was a a very carefully chosen target. It was a calibrated response. Trying to hit specifically the militia that had been targeting the us forces and allied forces and also to send a clear message to iran. That times have changed now. The official said this is also a message to iran and the militias. That things are different than they were. Under the trump administration under president trump and by way. We almost went to war with iran in a very similar circumstance. That that we're in right now. About a year

"Of friends or you know just in the media that somehow being on you was really bad the past few months have been particularly difficult for karachi and other iranian americans as tensions have escalated between the u._s. and iran it'll be obliteration like you've never seen before but i'm not looking to do that u._s. has been ramping up even more sanctions and disagreement over a downed u._s. drone almost led to a retaliatory strike by the americans for those of us who grew up in the states it's this idea of growing up and building our identity in a country that's constantly at risk of war or with increased tensions with this other place that we love and have so much family to give a friend duress ki came to the u._s. in hundred seventy one as a college student and he says the current uncertainty between iran and the u._s. is worrisome the range of emotions that iranians field inside iran and outside go somewhere between complete indifference and like what else is new on the other hand some of us basically fear that through some miscalculated action by one party or the other we've got an end up having the situation when some five thousand years of culture and territorial exists of countries comes under attack and just becomes complete rubble I'm Tanzania Nevada. And this is the takeaway. we'll hear more from karachi and move fender eski in a few minutes but first we turn to far nas fussy he for an update on the current situation between iran and the u._s. farmhouse writes about iran for the new york times great to have you back on the show thank you for having me back so we've been hearing so much about the back and forth between iran and the u._s. where do things stand today in the past few weeks we've seen tensions escalate to a place where we were at the brink of war last week where president trump said that he had ordered an targeted attack on ron in response to iran's revolutionary guards downing over one hundred million dollars by drone and then he reversed that track the u._s.'s policy seems to go back and forth between threatening the president tweeted yesterday that he would obliterate iran if it attacked and other american target and iran saying that we will defend ourselves that this is going to be very costly america so we have this kind of heated exchange but at the same time the u._s. saying that we really want to negotiate with iran and mr trump saying that this can all go away if ron comes to the negotiating table to talk about its nuclear deal to talk about it's missiles program and its regional policies from iran's perspective they've also rejected any idea of speaking to the u._s. today the latest is that i know how many in response to washington sanctioning him directly said that the offer from the united states to negotiate is a trick and the u._s. is afraid of our powers and we would never negotiate with them so this is kind of where we stand holding pattern dangerously close to a conflict and unpredictable reactions relief from both sides we spoke to an iranian american yesterday about how they were feeling about the rhetoric and i'm wondering one of the things that they described was particularly in response to president trump's announcement and then pullback of the strike on iran is that it felt like psychological warfare pharma's both sides are ramping up the rhetoric is it rhetoric or are we really expecting a conflict at this point just judging by what transpired in washington if indeed mr trump ordered attack and then he reversed ten minutes before as he says because generals at the pentagon warned him that this will be a very costly war i think despite the rhetoric there are in both places voices and policymakers who understand that the real risk of a conflicts between iran and the u._s. we also see from if iran side that they say we will defend ourselves but we don't really want war so both sides are have a subtitle of we don't really want war as the rhetoric escalates because of war with iran would likely involve not just iran in the u._s. but iran's proxies she does she militia iran has trained in iraq and syria afghanistan u._s. bases over there and and perhaps even either u._s. european allies or regional allies like saudi arabia it would set a flame to a region that's already in chaos and potentially even destabilize oil prices and shipping insurance prices that go through the strait of foremost in the persian gulf the u._s. strategy with iran as you mentioned earlier feels somewhat disjointed the u._s. is saying they want to continue negotiations with iran but they're also implementing sanctions and iran i'm wondering if they have a cohesive strategy when it comes to the united states does not have a cohesive strategy in that there are multiple layers of power in iran there's the supreme leader was rejected any negotiations with the u._s. there's the foreign minister job outside of who's in favor of negotiations there's the revolutionary guards which operates semi autonomously i definitely from the elected government but in coordination with the supreme leader so because there is no coherent power structure there's no one power unlike north korea where kim young going has his hand and dictates power in iran multiple voices on multiple layer of power and this makes the situation even more fluid in terms of its response to the u._s. there are some who have said that particularly in light of the president's announcement and then pullback of potential strikes on iran that they're feeling somewhat of a deja vu to the beginning of the iraq war more than a decade ago are you seeing that i covered the iraq war invasion the context that what was happening before us it it does remind i think reporters and analysts who were engaged with the iraq war of of the same thing in that the u._s. is really trying to build the case why iran is really dangerous why it ron needs to be contained we've seen a op-eds that iran as thai style qaeda we've seen you know opposition voices attacking embarrassing scholars journalists anybody who's opposed to war so on u._s. tax dollar i don't know if you follow it the whole iran sinful scandal where actually state department tax dollars were used by an entity called iran sinpho to attack americans so there's a lot of echoes of of the war but i actually think that's not a bad thing that awareness is perhaps also helping accountability and raising questions so you know the u._s. doesn't recklessly enter another war and get trapped for several more decades in the middle east since then trillions of dollars again without much result far nas physi- he writes about iran for the new york times for thank you again thank you for having me as tensions between the u._s. and iran continued to escalate we return to the stories of move under eski and monica rasi to iranian americans who came to the united states in the seventies and eighties and they told me what it's like to live that duality today into your heart and your family into countries but arrived in the united states in one thousand nine hundred ninety one to attend georgetown university and when i arrived i in new york and later into washington d._c. it was a complete culture shock in terms of not only to physicality of the united states but also the abundance of all sorts of amenities and the freedom that we all enjoyed in that's very common to what are perceptions of the united states so that was those wanted to go times and can you tell our listeners what iran was like in nineteen seventy one extremely hopeful the oil exports have become a mainstay of the iranian economy there was progress in every direction particularly in some social and cultural areas women's rights and rights of workers and so on and so the the drumbeat to the future was one of tainting greater economic prosperity and one day hopefully greater political freedoms and that coming out of the chaos of the nineteen fifties the post war period it was pretty you know kind of hopeful times for the country and we were on the march and mono what about you when did you come to the united states and what prompted your journey my family came to the united states near the end of nineteen eighty six and i i was a toddler at the time i was born at the height of the iran iraq war and my dad actually was in the military under the saw so he had to leave my family had already experienced the revolution and the trauma of the revolution and war and i think that was when the largest population of iranians left on but it was really because of the conflict and the lack of clarity of what the future of the country would be what was the reception that you got when you arrived in the united states and people heard you were from iran Mix that they won't end of the spectrum. it was one of extreme hospitality it's great and people who had known iran with traveled to iran have been enormous amount of exchanges back and forth between the americans rohingyas in all line of work and then there were you know people who always conflicted the iranians with arabs and and you know we would call you know certain names and don't don't take repeating and so it was it was kind of mixed but overall i think it was extremely positive and mono what about you having essentially come here as a toddler and growing up in the united states what was your experience like when people would find out that you were from iran and your family was iranian though i don't remember the eighties i know that my parents and my siblings experienced definitely affected me and i kind of grew up with their their trauma in their baggage so i remember you know like being at grocery stores or different places and my mom saying don't tell anyone where ron yeah let's not speak farsi in public and having a lot of fear i think because of their experience after the hostage crisis in eighty eighties at the height of the anti-romanian sentiment i'm the first in my family to grow up on in american and to really kind of have to define that identity for myself and it was this feeling of constantly loving these two identities and cultures that felt very naturally a part of me and part of my identity and yet getting these messages whether it was from my teachers or parents have friends or you know just in the media that somehow being on yin was really bad i remember being in kindergarten and having my teacher actually tell me about the movie not without my daughter and not being my first ones and to what people mean i'd states must think of my birth country and we'll be back with more from monica rasi and

"Starting when he declared they were out of proportion to the offence. The United States is debating how to respond to Iran shooting down an unmanned surveillance plane at a time of high tension, NPR national security, correspondent, David welna is covering the story. He's interested. He goes David, good morning. Good morning as best. You can tell how advanced was this strike, that had apparently been ordered. You know it's hard to know from here. Exactly how advanced it was. We have reporting from the New York Times the operation was already in its early stages when it was called off that were in position. And and planes in the air Trump says that he called this off ten minutes before a strike. Now the area of operations that we're talking about is actually quite small. Persian. Gulf is not that wide. There is a big US air base right across the Gulf, in, in cut. Tar and so plans were dispatched. He said that they three different targets had had been chosen, I guess that they could have been called off in mid flight. This is just very unusual to hear a description of an operation that was begun and then halted right before it was supposed to unfold. And what we have on the record is the president's own tweets. He wrote about this on Twitter, he makes the statement that he asked someone at the last moment, how many people would be killed and he decided it was just too many. People being killed. Do we have any reason to give full credence to that exact version of events? Well, one would think that if there were concerned about loss of human life, that would have been one of the first questions asked. And in the discussion by whether even to have a military operation, not for him to say that he asked about this when it appears the operation was already underway. Maybe strains credulity. We don't know. But I think that, that there's there, lots of questions about the credibility of this operation very briefly. Is it clear that there were a lot of administration officials who wanted to strike on Iran? We have both secretary of state Pompeo and national security adviser Bolton very hawkish on Iran. The Pentagon is not so much. They've been very cautious about getting involved in something that could escalate dramatic, twenty four hours. And this is maybe the beginning of what we're going to learn about it. David, thanks so much you up and see that's NPR's David welna now. What does it Ron side of the story that led to the near? Attack on Iran. We mean the downing of the US drone there is no Iranian diplomat to ask that question in Washington. The US and Iran have had no diplomatic relations since nineteen seventy nine there is and running, an ambassador to the United Nations in New York module Ravantchi is his name. He is new to the job, but not new to the United States because he studied decades ago at the university of Kansas, we met yesterday afternoon in his office in New York, and revanche insisted Iran had the right to fire on the US surveillance drone v try to caution to Joan she'll radio. Transmission, unfortunately, that drone the didn't respond and all of a sudden have you noticed that it was entering or space now. We've heard the competing claims about exactly where the drone was. There is no way to independently verify either side's claim at this point, but the ambassador contends that Iran has evidence besides you have in the physician of. The remains some parts. He means of, of this Joan beach fell view for covered. Portions of the have you have some portions of the drone, which naturally fell down in the total of this, somebody to go on is Iran waging, a wider campaign of trying to send a message to the world. Defensively, not, not seeking wool. Not only the US bid nobody, but Iran could be conducting provocations without seeking war. What, what, what is what is in it for you? Don't have it provocation if God forbid it conflict erupts in audio. They is not going to be a loser or Vinnie. Everybody will lose, but aren't you seeking some way to resist a respond to the US pressure campaign? You have to be to defend themselves being prepared to defend out says does not mean that you're. Seeking when two oil tankers were recently attacked investor, as you know, the United States blamed, Iran. Some US allies were initially silent or skeptical. They wanted to see the evidence. Now they have an uncle America, the leader of Germany, which has been trying to maintain a nuclear deal with Iran has said, there is strong evidence at Iran's involvement, does Iran acknowledge any involvement by Iranian forces or proxy forces in those tanker attacks. Not at all. We have said it medically that this has been very suspicious action who has done it. You don't know the have to find out who was responsible for this as I said, how do you answer until a miracle who says there's strong evidence at Iran's involved, it is not on the Germany. You your other allies have have not been satisfied the explanation of the US officials British been supportive of the US versions. I said, a number of crunchies have been supportive of the US ascension. But that are number of other countries who have not been satisfied at the beginning. They produce a black and white picture. They thought that they could convince the people later on they referred to colored pictures. But nobody knows that this big shift was, nobody knows where the small boat laws. You're referring to US military photos in color of what is identified as revolutionary guard running revolutionary guard vessel but. As I as I as I was as I was explaining that is no evidence as to vet that BIC ship loss. Was it indecision goal? Was it into Gulf of Mexico? Was it in the South China Sea? There's a photo from somewhere. I don't know. I'm an Changle Janu said that the evidence which was shared by the US can stand in the court of law in the United States. There will understandably be a dispute about all facts in these episodes. But there is a matter that is not up for dispute. And that is that Iran has said in recent days, that it's continuing to enrich uranium and will soon pass a limit for the amount of enriched uranium to have on hand under the nuclear agreement. Why would Iran go past that limit? The wholeness in audion started in may two thousand eighteen Ventura's in Trump decided to, to jaw from the nuclear deed. Against on offense against all opinion from, from the international community. The US is trying to intimidate you to on his song to put pressure on us on is trying to force it on into negotiations on the US temps. What you have been doing is to act nationality. Let's just remind people that was the deal, Iran restraints its nuclear program and was supposed to have more free and open trade with the west, the US stopped that and you wanted compensation from the Europeans. And you say, you're not getting me because because nuclear deal was like Italy street. But let me just ask, how is then exceeding a limit in the nuclear deal and effective response to that V set that VR going to after being patient for you? And deceive the financial dividend economic dividend. That. Was promised sauce, based on the Knicks as I said nuclear was a twist. You cannot have unless side of his cheat Evenki beautiful fill off traffic and on the other side, you have a traffic jam in our talk, Iran's ambassador to the UN pointed to a provision in the nuclear deal, which appears to say that one nation in the deal may stop complying. If other nations are not complying either that however still left a larger question. Are you step by step on your way out of this deal? No. Because because of you have said that it is not in our interest to see the demise of, of the nuclear, the, the prime minister of Japan is, you know, was in Tehran attempting to mediate between the United States and Iran met with your supreme leader afterward. The supreme leader made a statement to the effect that Trump is not someone who can be negotiated with her dealt with. Does that mean there's no point in negotiating with the United States? You cannot negotiate it. Somebody who has a knife in his hand putting the knife under your spilt and tell you that C on talk that cannot be acceptable by anybody. Do you feel you know what the end game is here where all of this is headed? It is in downs of the United States. So as soon as they the US changes course I think would be in a much situation. Then let's have today and you feel like you know what? Iran strategy is, and that, that can be successful strategy is to stick to the nuclear deed beach has the endorsement on the international community. And if the US goes back to, to the nuclear, the I think, as a set v it'd be much, but the situation Majd Ravantchi as Iran's ambassador to the United Nations, he spoke with us yesterday in New York. Let's bring another voice into the conversation. NPR's Peter Kenyon has been listening along with us. Peter. Who covers Iran and Peter what, what stood out for you there? Well, I thought it was interesting. He still saying around is not trying to exit the deal that wouldn't be in Iran's interest despite its recent threats to stop some of its commitments under the agreement. He pointed to divisions among the US allies, but mainly he was repeating the message. At least that's what I heard that from Tehran that it's not seeking war. He accused the US of trying to intimidate and pressure on. And that's exactly what the supreme leader has been saying they will be known ago. She's under pressure. There's no reason right now to talk with the US because their word can't be trusted. He's been saying that since Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions. So Iran is saying it's not too late even now to salvage the situation, but it has to start seeing economic benefits and that's exactly what the Trump administration seems most determined not to let it run see it. He also insisted we're acting rationally do outside analysts agree with that, that Iran, given the massive pressure would be doing about what it's doing. Iran. Seems to be responding to pressures if you wanna call that rational, I would say, yes, Peter, thanks very much. Thanks.

"That's training comes in on July first and the big story, not only here, but around the world has to do with the United States versus Iran or Iran versus the United States, and as a quick back story, which we all know it started with the tack on those two freighters. Why do one Japanese freighter, when Norwegian not freighters tankers oil tankers, and they were attacked with these limpet mines and big holes were put into the side of them. Not sunk certainly, a message. The president said that was a minor attack was a minor issue. Minor, the basically just the entire issue is not something to worry about. Okay. A lot of people disagreed with that. So the latest, of course, and this is a far bigger. Escalation is Ron shot down a predator unmanned vehicle a drone this United States that say an intelligence airplane, that don't have anybody in it. That's why it's drawn. And according to the US was flying international waters, twenty one miles away from the nearest point of Iran, right there in the middle of the strait of horror moose and Iran said that it was flying over Iraq. Territory and then shot it down. This was the revolutionary guard. All right. That's the back story and it doesn't seem to be any doubt that it was shot in international waters. Now here's what the Iranians are doing. First of all, they died that they had anything to do with the attack on the tankers, even though there is incontrovertible incontrovertible proof around the world. No one believes Iran and no one believes that the predator drone was over Iranian airspace. And so with president did is he decided that he was going to retaliate and in a series of tweets this morning? I'm going to go through a lot of others. He said on Monday, they shot down in unmanned drone flying international waters that was this morning. Incidentally, these tweets, we were cocked and loaded to retaliate last night on three different sites. When I asked, how many people will die one hundred and fifty people sir was the answer? From general ten minutes before the strike. I stop did not proportionate to shooting down in unmanned drone. I'm in no hurry. Our military is rebuilt new and ready to go by far the best in the world sanctions are biting and more added last night. And he went on to talk about how Iran can never have nuclear weapons. All right. So this is the president who is ready to go ready to retaliate against shooting down. An American, an American ship and air America aircraft, and immediately, we go. Okay, let's go ahead and come back and show them that they can't do this. So what is going on? Well, first of all, I'm surprised the president pulled back on this one. As imagine around him, John Bolton and others that are near him giving advice or super hawks, and you can bet even though the story hasn't. Come out. We haven't heard, you can bet. Bolton was sitting there and saying attack attack attack. And what are they going to do? We're talking about military military targets that will be attack much, like, what Israel does whenever there's an issue in Syria or HAMAs in Gaza goes after military installations missile sites. Communications, building that sort of thing, and that was, what was on the table and the president said, Nope. Not going to do it. Proportional whole issues proportional. They shoot down an unmanned vehicle. We're not going to kill anybody, and they don't have drones flying around, as far as I know and you are right. There are reports coming out now that secretary of state Pompeo and John Bolton did want a stronger military response than what the president was even willing to do. And so a couple of things about the president. I'm going to go into next segment. Remember, the president's campaign promise was to keep us out of. Wars. That's a big deal for the president very much an isolationist and when he does and troops as it's it's as if he has to, and he really has no choice. And then he minimizes the number of troops that are going so he is certainly keeping his campaign promises on this one. And then the issue of number one, the money, the United States gave to Iran or at least is being accused of giving to Iran. That's part of the tweet, we gave them one hundred fifty billion dollars, plus one point eight billion dollars in cash. Well, we didn't give it to them. We return their money. We had frozen it, and then we returned it when we got the nuclear deal, good or bad. You can argue but what a lot of people say is we gave them our money. No, we didn't we froze, the money in handed it back to them with some with interest, otherwise. We just appropriate the money. And now what you have governments all over the world. That keep their assets in the United States, states. The very safe place to keep money. Why? Because we honor our banking systems when other people park money here we don't take it. And that's what happened with Iran. Now, what is what is going to happen? What are the choices? And let's look at some alternatives and the ball now is in Iran's court. Incidentally, it's not in the United States is court. Hey, and we'll come back and we'll finish that up. This is KFI. Let's check in with Jennifer Jones leap general plans have been announced for the LA county sheriff's deputies shot while off duty in Alhambra deputy Joseph Solano will be buried Monday in east LA. After a service at cathedral of.

"revolutionary guards" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"Tonight at eight on ninety three point nine FM. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. The United States did not conduct airstrikes on Iran overnight. Normally it would not be major news that something did not happen. But multiple news outlets starting with the New York Times report. The President Trump ordered strikes and aircraft were already flying when he changed his mind and called the strikes off. The US is debating out a respond after Iran shot down, and unmanned, US drone NPR, White House correspondent, I Asia Roscoe begins our coverage here. Hey there, I show, hey, what were the targets that were reportedly almost struck well, so the New York Times, reported as you said, others have reported that trumpet approved limited airstrikes on running on Iranian targets like radar and missile batteries, and that the planes were in the air, and the ships were on route when they were told to stand down, and we have this decision this last minute. Reportedly by the president. We don't know a lot of inside details yet. But what about the way the president has talked about this shootdown in public as he sounded like he wanted to war, well, so at the so at this point, he's kind of seemed to be pulled in different directions. He seems like he wants to talk tough. He tweeted, you know, Iran made a very big mistake yesterday. But and then he also said, you know, kind of you'll see will we ended up doing in response to this, but then he also was saying that, you know, it looked like maybe they didn't actually intend Iran didn't actually intend to shoot down the drone and that he kind of Saud as who would actually do that. And maybe it was just somebody kind of going off on their own and doing something. And so it seemed like he was trying to kind of de escalate a little bit yesterday. But then these reports have come out, okay, we'll seek more clarity on them. Let's bring another voice into the conversation. NPR's Peter Kenyon covers Iran is currently. in is dan bull peter what is a ron saying about all of this well ronnie state tv has been broadcasting images of wreckage it says these are sections of the downed u._s. drone that have been recovered in aronie waters the government has meanwhile summoned the swiss ambassador in tehran to complain about what it calls the american drone incursion the swiss represent u._s. interests in iran at least one around you know let is reporting the new york times story about trump ordering this attack and then changing his mind but without any comment or reaction okay peter stay with us because i want to hear your response to in iran and fischel who's gonna give iran's side of the story we should mention there is no iranian diplomat to ask for that tied in washington the u._s. and iran have not had diplomatic relations since nineteen seventy nine but there isn't a and embassador to the united nations in new york module revanche e is his name he is new to the job but not new to the united states he studied at the university of kansas we met yesterday afternoon In revanche his office. And we sat by windows that looked out over New York as revanche e insisted, Iran had the right to fire on that. US surveillance drone v tried to caution to Joel two radio. Transmission, unfortunately, that drone didn't respond and all of a sudden we noticed that it was entering aura space. We've heard the competing claims about exactly where the drone was. There is no way to independently verify either side's claim at this point, but the ambassador contends that Iran has evidence besides be have in the physician of the remains some parts remains of, of this, Joan which fell you've recovered portions of the have you have some portions of the drone, which naturally. Fell down in within the territorial waters of this somebody to go on. Is Iran waging, a wider campaign of trying to send a message to the world. Definitely not the oh, not seeking not only with the US with nobody, but Iran could be conducting provocations without seeking war. What, what, what is what is in it for you? Don't have it provocation, if God forbid, a conflict erupts in audio Jen is not going to be a loser or Vinnie. Everybody will lose, but aren't you seeking some way to resist a respond to the US pressure campaign? He have to be to defend ourselves being prepared to defend ourselves. Does not mean that you're seeking when two oil tankers were recently attacked embassador, as you know, the United States blamed, Iran. Some US allies were initially silent or skeptical. They wanted to see the evidence. Now they have an uncle America, the leader of Germany, which has been trying to maintain a nuclear deal with Iran. Has said there is strong evidence of Iran's involvement does Iran acknowledge any involvement by Iranian forces or proxy forces in those tanker attacks. Not at all, not at all. We have said it vertically that this has been a very suspicious action who has done it. We don't know we have to find out who was responsible for this as I said, how do you answer? Miracle who says there's strong evidence at Iran's involved, it is not only Germany, you, your other allies have have not been satisfied the explanation of the US officials British ship, and supportive of the US, I as I said, a number of crunchies have been supportive of the US session, but there are a number of other countries who have not been satisfied at the beginning. They produce a black and white picture. They thought that they could convince the people later on they referred to color pictures, but nobody knows that. The big. Shift was, nobody knows where the small boat was you're referring to US military photos in color of what is identified as revolutionary guard and revolutionary guard vessel. But as I was as I was explaining there is no evidence as to vet, the BIC ship loss, was it indecision Gulf was it in the Gulf of Mexico. Was it in the South China Sea? You think there's a photo from somewhere? I don't know. I'm an Changle John. You said that the evidence which was shared by the US can stand in the court of law in the United States. There will understandably be a dispute about all facts and these episodes. But there is a matter that is not up for dispute. And that is that Iran said in recent days, that it's continuing to enrich uranium and will soon pass a limit for the amount of enriched uranium to have on hand under the nuclear agreement. Why would Iran go past that limit? The whole mess in our region started. In may two thousand eighteen Ben President Trump decided to, to draw from the nuclear deal. Against all odds against all opinion from, from the international community. The U S is trying to intimidate you to on his trying to put ecconomic pressure on each on is trying to. Four-seat on into negotiations under the US terms. What's he have been doing is to act rationally? Let's just remind people that was the deal, Iran restraints its nuclear program and was supposed to have more free and open trade with the west that is the US stopped that and you wanted compensation from the Europeans and you say you're not kidding because because nuclear deal was like it way street. But let me just ask, how is then exceeding a limited the nuclear deal and affective response to that visa that we are going to after being patient for a year, and we didn't see their financial dividend economic dividend. That was promised sauce, based on the Knicks as I said nuclear, these was was a two way street. You cannot have unknown side of his street, a very beautiful flow of traffic and on the other side, you have a traffic jam in our. Talk Iran's ambassador to the UN pointed to a provision in the nuclear deal, which appears to say that one nation in the deal may stop complying. If other nations are not complying either that however still left a larger question. Are you step by step on your way out of this deal? No. Because because of you have said that it is not in our interest to see the demise of, of the nuclear, the, the prime minister of Japan, as you know, was in Tehran attempting to mediate between the United States and Iran met with your supreme leader afterward. The supreme leader made a statement to the effect that Trump is not someone who can be negotiated with. They're dealt with does that mean there's no point in negotiating with the United States. You cannot negotiate it. Somebody who has a knife in his hand putting the knife under your throat and tell you that sit on talk that cannot be acceptable by by anybody. Do you feel you know what the end game is here where all of this is headed? It is in the hands of the United States. So as soon as the, the US change changes course I think would be in a much with their situation, and then what, what we have today and you feel like you know what? Iran strategy is, and that, that can be successful strategy it that is to stick to the nuclear deed beach has the endorsement on the international community. And if the US goes back to, to the nuclear dean, I think, as I said, TV it'd be much. But the situation Majd Ravantchi as Iran's ambassador to the United Nations, he spoke with us yesterday in New York NPR's, Peter Kenyon has been listening, along with us. Peter who covers Iran and Peter what, what stood out? For you there. Well, I thought it was interesting. He still saying around is not trying to exit the deal that wouldn't be in Iran's interests, despite its recent threats to stop some of its commitments under the agreement. He pointed to divisions among the US allies, but mainly he was repeating the message. At least that's what I heard that from Tehran that it's not seeking war. He accused the US of trying to intimidate and pressure on. And that's exactly what the supreme leader has been saying. They will be known ago. She Asians under pressure. There's no reason right now to talk with the US because their word can't be trusted. He's been saying that since Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions. So Iran is saying it's not too late even now to salvage the situation, but it has to start seeing economic benefits and that's exactly what the Trump administration seems most determined not to let it run. See the he also insisted we're acting rationally do outside analysts agree with that, that Iran, given the massive pressure would be doing about what it's doing Iran. Seems to be responding to pressures. If you wanna call that rush. I would say, yes, Peter, thanks very much. Thanks steve. NPR's feeder kitchen.

"Now. The lower third is Trump marching to war with Iran. What a mischaracterization of what is going on here. This is Iran escalating a situation that is incredibly can't, I posted the audio from the first hour already of Dr Orrin, Michael saying, Admiral, Stavridis twain is going to post the transcript of the atlas to have Radi I- pundits, who have no idea what they're talking about are out there say, oh, this is Bolton egging Trump on Pompeo help it. That's all absolute crap. This is the Iranian regime, which has not changed the since nineteen Seventy-nine. They tried this before nineteen eighty eight and Ronald Reagan sunk kept their navy in a couple of days at that's what's going to happen again, if they keep this up Saudi Arabia is accused of attacking two of their oil pipeline today. They've attacked four ships with limpet mines at the term used by Admiral Stavridis. This is not a partisan issue. And I think our media is so broken all they do is attempt to put everything into the Obama. Good Trump bad box at this is the same regime. I was before Ben Rhodes with born, I think I was sitting in the opposite San Clemente with Richard Nixon watching the Shaw fall and how many come to power in hearing him more in the passing of a pillar of stability in the Middle East and forecasting, the great strategic loss that we had suffered. And it is the nature of this regime to continually spread chaos and to try and avoid accountability. And appeasement of it does not work my. Washington Post column this morning what the Trump White House understand about Iran reads that President Barack Obama's fruitless effort to lure Iran's Ayatollah, Ali humming knee, into changing the behavior of his rogue regime. Never had a chance because it began from the premise that appeasement works. It never does appeasement didn't work with the Iran nuclear deal, just as it failed in the reset with Russia earlier in the Obama administration and Justice at fail. But the nineteen Ninety-four North Korea US feel when Pyongyang which peon gang had probably violated with its secret uranium enrichment sites, even as it put pen and picking to paper now. Iran is following through on its promise to again, unleash its proxies against America and its allies. Almost a year ago, I write long before the White House, designated the C. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard corps as a terrorist organization. Iran made it strategy public, quote on August six twenty eighteen the Iranian news agency FARs published statements by Jarrell Nassir Shabani a top official in the in which the general noted that the regime of the revolution. Had ordered ordered the hooky militia in Yemen to attack to Saudi tankers, and that, that the who had carried out those orders close, quote, the Trump administration abandoned the appeasement policy of Obama, who fell into the trap of hoping to be a political strategist who could flip a long running script like Richard Nixon in China. But Mao was at the end of his life when Nixon pulled that off his country had been crippled by the cultural revolution. And it was threatened on its northern border by an immense. Soviet army Obama ignored the fundamental realities of the world, the words in the deeds of the Iranian regime, and there is no reason to believe that there is fundamental change a foot in Tehran. I'm joined now by Harry Kazianis he's the senior director of Korean studies at the center for the national interest. But he's well acquainted with the nature of the Iranian regime is welcome morning, Harry, I just reading my washing post piece that, that simply reject the idea that what is going on in the Persian Gulf is because of John Bolton and Michael Pompeo, forcing American. Into a confrontation. What's your assessment? I agree with you. I mean, the simple fact is Iranian years have been pushing the envelope destabilizing all different parts of the Middle East. I mean this goes back to Iraq. Right right after the second goal or pushing into Syria during the civil war, stabilizing parts of Lebanon going on for years. And I'll be very Frank with you. Hugh. Many things I disagree with John, but I don't think you can simply just lay this all on the burden of some sort of hawkish foreign policy, this, this crisis with Iran has been building for a long time. And I just finally catching up with their actions. Now, I also believe that I was reading an IRA, general statement from last summer saying they're going to do this. They were going to tack tankers and pipelines and stuff like that. So I don't believe it's in response as some of the media narrative, is to the designation of the terrorist organization. I think that's nonsense. What do you think? Hundred percent. Right. And you actually dig down a little bit deeper. You actually start going into the military documents your strategy doctrine building up their armed forces to actually do this things that you're talking about one thing, shocking is, they're actually developing certain missile systems, and put them in things like tankers, put them in things like shipping containers. So when the US navy's out on patrol for example, he would get pretty close to US navy vessel open up the container fire their missile or ordinance and missile defense systems would have anytime reactor anything. So they've been building for this for a long time. It's, it's pretty clear now in terms of response, what I've been telling people about the nineteen Eighty-eight operation, praying mantis when Reagan ordered after an attack on the us, naval frigate, the thinking of basically half of Iran's navy and day. What do you think America will do? If an American ship, is attacked by these clowns. I don't think it would be sort of all out war, but I think it would be very, very heavy response. And I think this is why the Trump administration is brought in DC fifty two bombers. I mean a lot of those can attack from standoff range anywhere Iranian air defenses. I mean US navy story well equipped to handle all of these different type situations. I'm sure as twenty twos s thirty five of our stealth Slater are brought into the region. So we make sure that no US men and women are Harvard, these operations. But at the same time, we can send a very strong signal to Iran, if you mess with the United States, if you even try to go down that road or if you try to close the strait of or moose, you'll going to pay for it. So Harry Kazianis from the center from the national interest. Does Iran khanate separate signal from noise today, have the receptors to get the message. I you know, I think they do. I think they're, they're pretty smart. I think they're trying to test the United States. And I also think, to, Hugh, I think they know that the United States is doing a lot of different. Other problems throughout the world. I mean, for example, we've talked many times about the situation with North Korea. That's so obviously you're near resolve. We're still dealing with lots of promises. Dennis walea. Pretty smart. And slick, and understanding that was the United States trying to do with all these different problems out the world that this might be the time to create a little bit of havoc if they want to. But I, I think they have to understand that we've got some pretty smart sophisticated. Operators here with John Bolton. Mike Pompeo, even the president mean his foreign policy activist is going up dramatically, and we can handle this, and that would be a great mistake. If they thought this was the time to act. And so closing d do you predict that it will de-escalate or that it will escalate, I think it's gonna DSP I think Iran to be quite foolish to start something right now. I just don't see them doing this. I think everybody's doing a lot of talk a lot of full statements. But I think at the end of the day, they realized that in the military confrontation, they'd be toast. Harry Kazianis, thank you, my friend senior director of Korean studies.

"John, your longtime friend, and I want my audience to know, you have been a patriot every physician you have held even before you wearing government with Buckley versus Vallejo. A free speech case. It was very important. But all right. Let's let's get down to business here revolutionary guard. What did you guys do? The State Department at the direction of the president designated the I r g c as a foreign terrorist organization. This is very significant development. It makes it a criminal offence. Punishable by twenty years in jail for anybody to deal with the Revolutionary Guards has enormous consequences for immigration purposes, visa purposes, they can't come into the country. It's a real blow at the regime in Tehran, which is entirely fitting given their nuclear program their support for terrorism their their general maligned behavior around the world, and it is a terrorist state. This is the military wing of terrorist state. Right. Yeah. Absolutely. You know, the the government Iran was designated a state sponsor of terrorism by Ronald Reagan during his administration. It was the first government so designated and Reagan saw exactly for what it was. And this is the sort of activity that really it's it's going. Further and designating the revolutionary guard shows just how determined we are this regime. I mean, I soon they're still trying to build their nuclear warheads, right? Yeah. Anybody who says that they've given up their nuclear weapons program should ask. Why are they testing ballistic missiles, so they can launch weather satellites all they they still have the full intention of getting deliverable nuclear weapons they have never made a strategic decision to abandon that goal. Are they ever gonna leave Syria? Well, you know, I think it's one of the things that President Trump is looking at how to do. He he doesn't wanna fight the endless wars. That's for sure. But he understands the threat that Iran poses. It's it's what we're still looking at in all around the region. And that's why this designation is so important because in addition to the sanctions that we've imposed the Trump administration has imposed and the constraints that's put on Iran when we go after the I R itself, we're going. After the the main element of their military spreads the Islamic revolution. And so that's a direct hit against the regime do European allies. Do they see this the way we see this that Iran is a serious threat to us and them, and they really need to put the screws on them economically. They're not in the same place. That's the fact it's not for lack of effort on the Trump administration part to educate them. And I think they're beginning to see the evidence of terrorist attacks in in Europe plan by the Iranian intelligence ministry. They know in Europe as well, as we do what these ballistic missile programs are all about they just hate to give up the Iran nuclear deal. It's really hoping against hope that somehow or another that deal can be saved. But it's a Ron zone activity. That's underminded. It's not anything. The US is done other than protect ourselves against the threat of a nuclear, Iran. Now that you guys put the scarlet letter on them that is the slum revolutionary guard. Does that have any consequences for European companies? Yeah. Absolutely anybody who knowingly deals with the guard or any of its elements or any of its people is guilty of a felony under American law, and there are criminal penalties their civil penalties that. Flow from it. And this is quite important because in many respects, the revolutionary guard and its could force which is the the part of the of the C that operates abroad in Iraq in Syria in Lebanon, really depends on being able to do business overseas. And this is going to make it very very difficult for them. I'm curious the Chinese and the Russians are they continuing to help on the Iranians the the Chinese would like nothing better than to continue to buy Iranian oil. We're coming up on a very important decision. Whether to ban all exports of Iran and oil that would affect China among other countries. Russia's still wants to sell Iran, very sophisticated weapons. They are linked together. And one of the things that we're trying to do with the Russians is explained that this is not in their best interest. So far, we've not been persuasive. But we're going to continue to try and make that point, you know. It's interesting to me. This. It's an odd odd movement of countries here. I mean Turkey Turkey and Iran get along better these days, they have some common objectives that are not in our best interests. That's for sure I think what people need to understand is that when the Cold War ended the world didn't emerge into sweetness and light in effect. We went back to an old fashioned nineteenth century competition. Among powers of balance of power approach. It's not ideological like the Cold War. But but nobody should operate under the allusion that conflict and and risk to the United States. Was eliminated gets one reason why for all the criticism he gets by people who who say he's putting too much pressure on our NATO allies to live up to their own commitments to spend two percent of their gross domestic product on defence that that ineffective makes NATO a stronger alliance because we do have a threat posed by the Russians. In eastern, central Europe. So it's understanding we're living in a different world. It doesn't look like the Cold War. That's true. It doesn't look like the post Cold War air events are changing China's the exit stencil problem of the twenty first century, and and we need to deal with that. But they're plenty of other problems out there for the United States to the president met with the president of Egypt today. What did they talk about their you're loud to tell us about? Well, they had a very wide range in very cordial discussion talked about Iran, obviously in the threat that Iran posed we talked about events in Libya, Sudan, bordering on Egypt. We talked about how president el-sisi had acted against the Muslim Brotherhood this stream organization that that in Egypt. They treat as a terrorist organization, and he he gave us a lot of interesting thoughts. And so I was very a very productive discussion. And particularly as were in the middle of the Israeli, Alexa. You know, this is the the relationship between Egypt and Israel's gone through its ups and downs. But they've been at peace since nineteen seventy nine, and that's something we need to remember that under el-sisi the gypsies are very committed to the Camp, David accords. I know you have to go keep up the good work. We've very very much. Appreciate it out here and give the president our best to do that. I'm sure you'll talk to him in the near future to and he always enjoys it. And I I know I know what he's talked to you. Because he always mentions it. Well, thank you and take care of yourself. John. Okay. Mark. Thank you. It's a great national security adviser. He's got a great team around him. Now, I noticed one of the cable channels they were pointing out that the shakeup of the last two years. And this president's cabinet is more than any president modern history. Outsider. And he knows what he wants. And if something doesn't work out he deals with it rather than just hanging on hanging on hanging out. What is the problem? Okay. He's not George W Bush. So what he's not Richard Nixon. So what he's Donald Trump. Like nails on a chalkboard tax season. If you have IRS debt every tax you here remind you this could be the day, the IRS nails you. Now, you broke rule number one don't mess with the IRS, they can garnish your paycheck, Levy your Bank accounts. Even take your home away.

"Ambassador told you embassador boat. What if it call you can call John bone call you John you're longtime fan. And I want my audience to know you have been patriot. Every position you have held even before you wearing government with Buckley versus Vallejo. A free speech case it was very important. But all right. Let's let's get down to business here revolutionary guard. What did you guys do the State Department at the direction of the president designated the I r see as a foreign terrorist organization? This is very significant development. It makes it a criminal offence. Punishable by twenty years in jail for anybody to deal with the Revolutionary Guards. It has enormous consequences for immigration purposes, visa purposes, they can't come into the country. It's a real blow at the regime in Tehran, which is entirely fitting given their nuclear program their support for terrorism their their general maligned behavior around the world, and it is a terrorist state. This is the military wing of a terrorist state. Right. Yeah. Absolutely. You know, the the government Iran. Was designated a state sponsor of terrorism by Ronald Reagan during his administration. It was the first government so designated and Reagan saw exactly for what it was. And this is the sort of activity that really it's it's going further and designating the revolutionary guard shows just how determined we are this regime. I mean, I soon they're still trying to build their nuclear warheads, right? Yeah. Anybody who says that they've given up their nuclear weapons program should ask. Why are they testing ballistic missiles, so they can launch weather satellites not at all they they still have the full intention of getting deliverable nuclear weapons they have never made a strategic decision to abandon that goal. Are they ever gonna leave Syria? Well, you know, I think it's one of the things that President Trump is looking at how to do. He he doesn't want to fight the endless wars. That's for sure. But he understands the threat that Iran poses. It's it's what we're still looking at in all around the region. And that's why this designation is so important because in addition to the sanctions that we've imposed the Trump administration has imposed and the constraints that's put on Iran when we go after the I R itself, we're going after the the main element of their military that spreads the Islamic revolution. And so that's a direct hit against the regime do European allies. Do they see this the way we see this that Iran is a serious threat to us and them, and they really need to put the screws on them economically. Well, they're not in the same place. We are. That's that's a fact it's not not for lack of effort on the Trump administration part to educate them. And I think they're beginning to see the evidence of terrorist attacks in in Europe plan by the Iranian intelligence ministry. They know in Europe as well, as we do what these ballistic missile programs are all about they just hate to give up the Iran nuclear deal. It's really hoping against hope that somehow or another that deal can be saved. But it's a Ron zone activity. That's underminded. It's not anything the US has done other than protect ourselves against the threat of a nuclear, Iran. Now that you guys have put the scarlet letter on them that is the Slavic revolutionary guard. Does that have any consequences for European companies? Yeah. Absolutely anybody who now knowingly deals with the guard or any of its elements or any of its people is guilty of a felony under American law, and there are criminal penalties. Their civil. Penalties that flow from it. And this is quite important because in many respects, the revolutionary guard and its could force which is the part of of the C that operates abroad in Iraq in Syria in Lebanon, really depends on being able to do business overseas. And this is going to make it very very difficult for them. I'm curious the Chinese and the Russians are they continuing to help on the Iranians. You know, the Chinese would like nothing better than to continue to buy Iranian oil. We're coming up on a very important decision. Whether to ban all exports of Iran and oil that would affect China among other countries. Russia's still wants to sell Iran, very sophisticated weapons. They are linked together. And one of the things that we're trying to do with the Russians is explained that this is not in their best interest. So far, we've got we've not been persuasive. But we're going to continue to try and make that point. You know, it's interesting to me this it's an odd an unmoving of countries here. I mean Turkey to Turkey and Iran, get along better these days. Well, they have some common objectives that are not in our best interests. That's for sure I think what people need to understand is that when the Cold War ended the world didn't emerge into sweetness and light in effect. We went back to an old fashioned. Nineteenth century competition. Among powers of balance of power approach. It's not ideological like the Cold War. But but nobody should operate under the allusion that conflict and and risk to the United States. Was eliminated gets one reason why for all the criticism he gets by people who who say he's putting too much pressure on our NATO allies to live up to their own commitments to spend two percent of their gross domestic product on defence that that in effect makes NATO a stronger alliance because we do have a threat posed by the Russians in eastern and central Europe. So it's understanding we're living in a different world. It doesn't look like the Cold War. That's true. It doesn't look like the post Cold War air events are changing China's the existential problem of the twenty first century, and we need to deal with that. But there are plenty of other problems out there for the United States to the president met with the president of Egypt today. What did they talk about their your loud to tell us? About well, they had a very wide ranging very cordial discussion, the talked about Iran, obviously, the threat that Iran posed we talked about events in Libya and the Sudan bordering on Egypt. We talked about how president el-sisi had acted against the Muslim Brotherhood this extremist organization that that in Egypt. They treat as a terrorist organization, and he he gave us a lot of interesting thoughts. And so I was very a very productive discussion. And particularly as we're in the middle of the Israeli election. You know, this is the the relationship between Egypt and Israel has gone through its ups and downs. But they've been at T since nineteen seventy nine, and that's something we need to remember that under el-sisi the gypsies are very committed to the Camp, David accords. I know you have to go keep up the good work. We very very much. Appreciate it out here and give the president our best to I will do that. Well, I'm sure you'll. Talk to him in the near future to and he always enjoys it. And I I know I know when he's talked to you because he always mentions it. Well, thank you and take care of yourself. John. Thank you. It's a great national security advisor. He's got a great team around him. Now, I noticed one of the cable channels they were pointing out that the shakeup of the last two years in this president's cabinet is more than any president modern history. Outsider. And he knows what he wants. And if something doesn't work at he deals with it rather than just hanging on hanging on hanging out. What is the problem? Okay. He's not George W Bush. So what he's not Richard Nixon. So what he's Donald Trump. Like nails on a chalkboard tax season. If you have IRS debt every tax issue here remind you this could be the day, the IRS nails you. Now, you broke rule number one don't mess with the IRS. They can garnish your paycheck Levy your Bank accounts. Even take your home away. And I'm going to give you my direct line to Optima Tax Relief because they're the very best. And they help a lot of people. And it's just for you. My listeners to ask.
