"You to court. So the by the administration is making the same case that this is a threat to workplace safety. And that's the ground that this law or this mandate will be fought on.

Moral teaching teaches that abortion is a sin in their force of murder but that's their doctrinal. An ideological position biblically doesn't say anything about abortion is a sin or a former anyone teaches differently is Is not telling the truth as so He is right contradicting the teaching of his of his faith biblically which is suppose. Ignore the important thing. He's on firm ground but not only that he's taken an oath to defend the constitution and the constitution particularly with urging the men were said the no one has the right to a slave anyone else's by all right league we can just stop with the city but you get the point..

"She'll tell us about them by then. Yesterday blaming major military personnel for the decision to withdraw from bagram air force base. You know the comments contradicted the chairman of the joint chiefs which is general mark milley and this is what we've gotten the whole week all week long. You know congressmen and women are being briefed. They're told the being told four. Thousand americans forty one hundred. Americans forty five hundred. Americans are still trapped behind enemy lines. Then anthony blinken goes out and tells the american people fifteen hundred but we think it's way less than fifteen hundred probably under a thousand so we still to this day. We can't get an accurate accounting of how many americans are trapped behind enemy lines or what the plan is because now the state department has moved all their personnel to the airport and the military. They're not joe biden. Said he's not sending any more military he's sticking to this artificial deadline all but acknowledging that americans will be left behind and even saying so in the press conference. I won't play it again. 'cause we live yesterday but now biden saying guess for tactical questions on how to conduct an evacuation or war. I gather up all the major military personnel that are in afghanistan. The best commanders wells the pentagon and ask for their best military judgement. What would be the most efficient way to accomplish the mission. Well we're now discovering that in fact the military didn't screw this up as bad as he's portraying it because apparently the military repeatedly was telling him not to do it now. President trump was very clear. We'll play the interview later in this program today. The second hour. He was very clear to me that his plan was quite different. They would never give up. We will keep in perpetuity. Bagram air force base. We built it. We own it strategically we were going to hang onto it. Also based on conditions on the ground but the most important part was the reason in american adam died in eighteen months and the final year the trump presidency is because donald trump told them repeatedly all obliterate. You like baghdadi like sola mani like the al qaeda leader in yemen. Like i did the caliphate. I will obliterate you. Do you understand confirmed by. Mike pompeo confirmed by mark meadows released. That call. I want that call released. Joe we're going to leave. Americans behind doesn't that doesn't that hit your solar plexus hard because it does mind the thought the idea the concept is it goes against every single belief system. I have you. Don't leave americans behind ever. Under any circumstances you.

"Not only that the taliban veered president trump. They looked at what happened to sola mani. They looked at what happened when syria gassed own people. D- took action. He's a man of action. And now you have a buffoon as our commander in chief he vacations in delaware. He doesn't take questions. He turns his back on the american people. And president trump says he's renderers surrenders co-pilot. It is now what to fifteen eastern. Is that right. Yup to ten and zero comment from the president is bein. Just kind of watching while ten military service members die while playing traffic cop with your reckless withdrawal. That's is that just the new normal while. Joe biden declares war on rhonda santa's on the unvaccinated and the taliban or isis or whomever. Because they're all part of an keith. Rose made this argument. They're all tied together. I know they all supposed to hate each other. They work as prox- but they all work as proxies. Okay and they all want americans dead. So joe biden. In his mass incompetency or malignancy just allowed this thing unfold and we were told. It's perfectly find you know. What really upsets me. Andrew is last week or a couple of days ago. We did the knock on wood foreign policy. Remember that we knock on wood doctrine and we said americans are going to die because of this and then there's another imminent threat of another bombing on the north gate of kabul. Ten americans are dead. Ten servicemembers are dead. It's gonna get worse to. We're hearing that. We should be having jack pacific gut join us in just a second but he was just mentioning the same this what he's hearing about to get a little bit a lot of it worst. Who's in charge. Who is taliban charge. Charlotte i mean but which is goldberg motions by and pretend that you're running the country camera harass. Anyone is jen psaki there. She always run her mouth. Oh no she's too busy for the cover of vogue magazine. Or jen's jen psaki is oh third third explosion reported near kabul airport gunman gunfire. Can you please let the dogs loose so we can start killing these. Can i say that word. Kill the bad guys kill. We let the dogs loose plays enough. Playing games put the special forces the navy seals in the streets and start counting the bad guys start getting killed all of them. You know it was striking to be. We have our pilot. The taliban bodies up by the side of the buildings no more americans are allowed to be died in afghanistan us. I mean we've striking to me is keith. Rose who's an absolute patriot and a hero completely fearless. And then you've got victor marks who is. Yeah these guys you heard him. Victor said he said. Let us that. I'm gonna go cowboy up all this myself. It's these go hurting perverts. Okay i you talked to these special forces. They say one hundred of us could take the city in a night. And just so you understand. These guys just learned how to use sophisticated weaponry yes they they blow themselves up and they were tough to fight in the hills. They are not built for this. Let me just say right now. In biden knew it was just. It was joe biden. Try to talk obama out of the osama bin laden raid. Remember that was that raya. It doesn't bite into something like khan whose how compromised is biden for. Who's in charge. Who getting worked up here. Everybody i hope you are too ten. Americans just got killed. Because of the recklessness and others a third explosion and we're just supposed to sit idly by like the peanut gallery like the marines are disposed to watch this happen. What jen sake say the other day we have the we have the tape here somewhere. Well this is what happens when you negotiate with terrorists by the way so. This thing is predicated on on good faith with the taliban taliban good faith and their the terrorists so what happened tonight with like cut fifty nine so far. Afghanistan is nothing but a success cut fifty nine. I would say that this is now on track either to be the largest airlift and us history So and that is a bringing american citizens out. It is bring our afghan partners out. It is bringing allies out So no i would not say that is anything but a success. Anything but a success ten americans. What are their names who are they. This is worse than benghazi. Just so you know then. Gaza we lost four americans and lost our embassy. We've lost her embassy here now. Four americans sixty afghans dead. And this was you know. What's so frustrating about. This is that we saw this happening in slow motion and we enter. We were warning about this last week. Like hey they control the whole city. Who's gonna have. Who's going to get the afghans out who's going to be happened. Who's gonna who's gonna get the americans out of the afghan military and now there's a third explosion third exposure. There's probably So what they do. In these instances just so people are aware they. They set off one explosion in one location. That's why they call it a complex attack when you set off an explosion in one location that funnels the crowd to another location and then they let off another explosion when the crowd gets more when it gets more densely populated in a certain area. And then what happens is they probably run to the next location. Which is why. We're hearing about a third attack and and gunfire so again.

"Pursued Which was again the first airstrikes along this model That the united states pursued we saw a number of popular protests within iraq. That actually led many. Which i should be noted we're kind of facilitated and supported by some of these militia groups that were involved and believed to be supported by ron and pursuing these anti us actions. We saw these protests movements and up with three. Large-scale demonstrations outside the us embassy in iraq and then with some people actually charging us embassy and breaking in their dramatic videos which i was asked him but he worked at the us embassy for for a good amount of time. We're pretty striking to see. You know these protesters kicking down the door and pushing against these security guards. That are there to protect the diplomats inside in what is by many accounts probably the united states most secure embassy overseas and one of the largest. So you know you can see a pretty dramatic short-term action at the same time you know. The sola mani killing led the iraqi parliament to almost immediately within a matter of days. Pass a measure saying we want. Us troops out now. Ditto as a nonbinding measure the iraqi government has slow roll that and basically said we want the united states to engage in a dialogue about moving itself towards the exits in terms of its military presence in iraq. Both out really insisting on a firm tight deadline at least so far but nonetheless that is a pretty dramatic Short term solution for a us iraq military relationship that had actually been pretty closely held. An and i think had had mended a lot of the last years because of us support in the counter islamic state efforts by the iraqi government. And so you see these big shorter actions. What we don't see yet is a sign that these sorts of airstrikes are likely to completely undermine the us iraq security relationship because we do still see the iraqi government under prime minister academy you know kind of slow rolling or engaging a gradual process about reducing troop presence. And it's not entirely clear. The united states and its coalition allies want to maintain a major troop presence in iraq or feels necessary for counter islamic state operations. Moving forward especially as a security situation genuinely has deteriorated and as the united states is kind of reorienting itself. More towards great-power competition with china and russia and less towards these regional conflicts regional commitments. And so you know it is. A question is a very good question as well. How much is this one thing going to make a difference in. What i suspect is that we will see a number of sort of public reactions. We've already started to see in iraq and that it is kind of one more. You know straw on the camel's back to say that eventually we're gonna hit some sort of breaking point if we keep pushing this sort of limit and acting in iraq and away. The iraqi government feels like it has to oppose. And at some point they are going to it's going camel's back is waiting to break and they're going to have to publicly say we no longer supports yesterday. Presence here you need to leave now but is this going to be the the thing that pushes it across that line. I kind of doubt it. I and it does seem that. That relationship is perhaps a little more durable than some people including me thought it might have been a year and a half ago and the by administration may be counting on the fact that they've still got a little more space they can push before they'll be any long-term major disruptions there so as you watch out for for what happens next year. Wooder things on the sort of diplomatic side that your your ear to see how they pan out sort of clues to see what the impact of the saw might be things that we should look out for. Yeah i think a lot of this comes into how the united states tries to frame these actions. Both with the sort of iraqi -letes And with the iraqi public and perhaps more importantly how they give how much framing material they give to the iraqi leads to be able to sell continued. Us iraq security cooperation to the public and take political pressure off of them to to end it prematurely sooner than the by administration wants to see it end That is going to mean that. The united states needs to do with the administration actually has really made a point of very vocally. That's a sharp contrast with the trump administration which is to say. We are here to be partners of the iraqi government. We are here to support the iraqi government and to try and keep the iraqi government able to do what it needs to do to be effective. And we're not here to tread on its sovereignty and we're not here as an occupying power or as one of these other you know hostile elements that they're often cast of By opponents of the us presence in iraq in iraqi media and other sources and so we really need to see is what that sort of diplomatic engagement looks like. an how the united states can shape that message. It's not easy and part. Because the united states i think a lot of iraqis have very instincts really. Distrusting perspective of the united states and that united states is constantly trying to overcome that barrier as part of the reason and it just doesn't have the same cultural and historical connections that Many of these other groups do with different parts of iraq including some of these around back militias. Which do have ties to local communities and media and to some extent. Rhonda's well that. Just put them in a better position to shape those sorts of public perceptions but there are little things the united states can do most of them come back to re emphasizing that. We're here to help the iraqi government and you know putting their money where their mouth is actually doing it with security assistance foreign assistance and a supportive diplomatic posture. And that. that's what i would look to see. I would also look to see the by inspiration being very careful and taking these steps moving forward. The trump administration was very robust and it's rhetoric. Although you know it actually particularly after the uproar and exchange of hostilities directly with iran. Follow this money. Strike pursued a couple of additional strikes but was not you know doing this at the tempo that some of its rhetoric midas suggested. It was willing and interested in doing. And i think we need to see that from the biden administration. I think that the line rhetorical line they seem to fit. You're saying that this is something that was necessary and is not intended to be assigned that this is something we're going to take regularly is a good one. They need to strike a balance saying communicating the message that this is a real limited action something that we are trying to to the extent we have to do something. That's perceived as intruding on iraqi sovereignty. Do it as little as possible because we care about iraqi sovereignty and that does mean maybe accepting that are real limits to how much you can use this tool that if you were just considering military strategy may wanna pursue more often. So those are the two real variables. Let's look at moving forward. The third one is going to be the engagement with iran over the jcp. Oa if you make real progress on there and it looks like there is real diplomatic a movement then all the sudden iran's interest i think in building hostility with the united states over iraq over some of these other fronts certainly becomes much more costly because it may come at the cost of progress on the sanctions front which is something. I think very much care about other national level and so that's kind of a third front to look at as well but they all interactive very complicated way and again. It's very difficult balance the strike and just to wrap up so these these news items happened right there. Their time that they get in the new cycles often. So brief that i think it's insufficient time for people to sort of digest an process and think about the broader impact of. What's happening so for you when you think about all that's gone on what are what are the big takeaways. The big lessons learned the things that you would hope. People can emerge from this with a new perspective on maybe sure You know what. I think this really unders and the thing that this makes this different from prior things by administration has done is what it means for the us iraq relationship and the us iraq relationship has been a kind of mainstay despite for all the problems. It's had a continues to have Has been a mainstay of the us..

"The timing of iran's gonna hack the hospitals and infrastructure and all this stuff okay so it was first reported by nbc news on thursday and verified by fox. Okay that the threats could be linked to the killing of sola mani. They don't actually know. The names of the pentagon officials allegedly targeted were not released. But they're believed to have been the senior leadership involved in the sola mani killing by the way Israel basically was behind largely involved in prompting the us to to kill sulejmani. If you're not familiar with that. I recommend in go look it up. It didn't come out right after the sola molly killing but by february they essentially admitted they were involved in. We covered this extensively. I'll turn videos about. This really was and this was a diplomatic mission that people were invited on the iraqi government. Already admitted this and so on and this was an extra judicial assassination. That's right so anyway. They're citing here for for all this information a person familiar with the threads so they don't tell you who they are so totally anonymous saying you can of iran harming american officials extent civilian officials as well a person familiar anonymous person familiar with the threats. I mean this is just like before the invasion of iraq. I hope i remember. I know it was a long time ago but like it's the same crap anyway so the incident about the threats is based on this This event this incident that reportedly involved a senior pentagon official followed by an iranian national. Okay that all of this. This whole article comes from this incident. So what was the incident. This pentagon official who asked not to be identified security reasons. We don't know who he is. Okay was followed after getting into a black government owned suv. The driver of the tail later identified as an iranian national driving. A car with virginia plates followed them for five to seven miles reportedly driving aggressively at times but they easily lost him after. Changing routes and the pentagon issued a beyond the lookout alert or a bolo and informed federal law enforcement authorities of the incidents releasing details the iranian nationals facebook and instagram accounts which shows he had friends in iran and afghanistan that bad man and the country that borders. He clearly is digging. Why did they include that waiting. The iranian people are bad that afghanistan. It's the they just despite them trying to always pretend that they're fighting for the people everything they do hurts the people there. That's there that that's the idea that they pretend like just because he's from iran that he's suspect it's the same thing to do about russia and and i mean that's so incredible that they're issuing this based on i mean i just it does the job but no one knows if he was just driving the survey the fact that oh we lost him after a one maybe he wasn't even following them. I mean it's totally hypothetical just because the guys are all good practice out though pentagon. Fbi officials disagree on whether the event even constitutes an actual attempt to target a senior pentagon official. Who even the guys don't even think it's you know just this one guy being like time to read something in the mainstream media that he is going after our leaders and wu there might be a war with iran. Soon mean with this kind of stretch in what happened. S with this kind of stretch. You really start wondering whether that this event even took place like if people on on their team going now. That's not even that's not something you know. And they're pushing it out anyway. You know what to tell us. Even real i mean there's just so much aggressive misinformation and remember..

"First of all the money, you know he he the other thing that's important. He was the architect of really the fight against Isis, and trump likes to claim that the US. Kill one hundred percent of Isis not true. His predecessor Obama helped bring ice power bring. al-Qaeda. Power in places like Syria and Iraq. So the idea that we kill those actually Sola Mani who did it and he controlled a lot of the militias in Iraq. So killing him made no sense other. Than the fact that he could put the lie to what we're saying about US being involved. But this this plot, this this so-called plot was exposed by Natasha Bertran. She is a well-known neo constant Tanaga for who writes for politico. They love to leak these kinds of stories, and here's here's what she said a US government official told her about this plot on ambassador marks. US. Ambassador to south. Africa. It was confirmed by quote another official who was seeing the intelligence. So there is no named official. There's no even named agency we assume it's the CIA. But the plot is salaciously want to kill this. US Ambassador to South Africa all unnamed sources as retaliation against trump's assassination Sola Monte. The question is why why would they WANNA hit Ms Marks? She's best known for designing very expensive handbags. I. Don't think Mrs Paul has won they cost forty thousand bucks each maybe she knows. My wife certainly doesn't have one. Princess Di had. So that's what she's stainless for. She's given a lot of money trump trump says, hey, why don't you go down South Africa be the ambassador get some Sun have a nice time so it doesn't make any sense for them to kill her it has zero value the South African intelligence services said this is completely bogus quote not likely to be real they've seen no evidence they said we'll keep an eye out we've seen no evidence and the thing about Dr Paul This may play well to an American audience who who's sort of weaned on Hollywood movies. They want a big smash up the reality is that Iran's response to the assassination of Sola Mani has been very measured and very precise to this point Iran beginning said we will retaliate our goal is to have American troops out of the Middle East stop meddling in our affairs. Every step they have taken to this point has been moving toward that goal there an attack on to us basis in in Iraq by Iranian backed militias what's causing injury to US troops, but not A. Lot of deaths, it wasn't to escalate to justify POMPEO's desire to bomb. There have been dozens of militia attacks on US bases including I think just a day or so ago. So the Iranian idea is basically death by a thousand cuts. We will chase you out by doing these little things that fall below the threshold for a massive response because we want you out of the Middle East and that's what they've been doing systematically since sense of the idea that they'll have a huge dramatic explosion by killing this ambassador it really frankly it just it just hard hard to swallow. You know the thing that we're dealing with is this offer by so called moderates or even even the trump position that you you don't want to send troops in by the tens of thousand matter of fact, you want to deescalate bring troops home and not look like you're GonNa get our troops involved you. We don't want to see the body bags at the same time. Just. Like Eisenhower was very excited about using the CIA for overthrows and of course No hiding and trump was proud of the fact that. He's a bad guy. But. It's just recently we discover that in two thousand eighteen he's at the same thing about Assad he's a bad guy and of course,.

Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus

"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

More than 100 US troops diagnosed with brain injuries

"US military on Monday disclosed a more than fifty percent jump in cases of traumatic nick. Brain injury stemming from Iran's missile attack on a base in Iraq last month with a number of servicemembers diagnosed climbing to over one hundred no. US troops were killed or faced immediate bodily injury when Iran fired missiles at the base in Iraq in retaliation for the US killing killing of Revolutionary Guards General Kacem Sola Mani in a drone strike at the Baghdad airport on January third the Massana tax capped a spiral of violence that started in late December. Both sides had refrained from further military escalation but the mounting number of US casualties could increase scrutiny on the trump administration's the station's approach to Iran. Donald Trump appeared to play down the brain injuries last month saying he heard that they had headaches. And a couple of other things following the attack attack prompting criticism from lawmakers and US veteran's group various health and medical groups for years have been trying to raise awareness about the seriousness. snus of brain injuries including concussions. Since two thousand around four hundred eight thousand servicemembers have been diagnosed with traumatic brain in injury. According to Pentagon data

"sola mani" Discussed on The Last American Vagabond

"After eight rockets. Were fired at the Blonde airbase another facility that houses. US forces so that's the twelfth. We're talking about the fourteenth so to within the last three days so it's clear that was. Excuse me the American contractor. That really made this move made it happen. which was actually the one thing that trump said that he needed to act in this way? He wouldn't do this unless there was an American kill. That's all on record and then of course pompeo delivered a spot. Here's an American contractor. That's really an Iraqi. That just became an American. But we don't tell anybody that will wait three two weeks before even renounce his name. This is a spy working for the government. Counterintelligence so pompeo delivers this spy. He gets killed. Trump has what he needs and then carry out the explanation. The attacks US me with this explains to me why now these attacks are treated as almost irrelevant right because this is all Vanessa's been happening around the whole thing thing they only did was create what they needed to show trump to make. It look like they needed to attack. That's what I think. Anyway as the article points out the US commonly blames factions of the popular mobilization units for shelling facilities in Iraq Washington describes this part of the Iraqi armed forces as a Ronnie and proxies. Now just remember as their listing. This often often the article that none of this has been backed up by evidence. None of it. And I'M GONNA keep saying this every single time because it's staggering to me that we could be in this position when the government that's telling us these things without proving them is the same government that lied about. WMD's to get us into the war with Iraq that killed a million people. Five hundred thousand children dron and yet we can't reflect on that none of it has evidence backed up. I mean whether the rockets were then or are now even being fired by the PM view that hasn't been proven whether the PM or Ronnie and proxy hasn't been proven and even then whether or not Iran actually ordered them to carry out the act. I mean think about how many levels of absolute unverified claims are existing right now they basically created an air where anything can happen anywhere and they're going to Iran right because we we told you we showed you this very confusing and muddled network of things that we never proved well of in Iran bad guy. That's where we are so a rocket flies just like like we see in Israel with with with Gaza rocket flies and they don't even need to argue anything anymore. Toss right. We've already made this air constant so right now. We have constant air that anything happening. Here's Ron Right. So they build this era of constant tension of Gresham coming from Iran. When in fact they're not doing anything it's the US government that's continuing to create this air of tension? We have to begin to see this now. None of that has anything behind it. None of the claims around this argument none of it except the forceful assertions of career liars but landlord. Let's trust them because that seems right and while they absurdly certainly still professed to respect Iraq's sovereignty they currently gave up on that claim for Syria. Who Long Ago? And of course Israel has taken full advantage wantage missiles coming from Herat. Syria says Israel army struck t four airbase in Homs which has sense actually been confirmed. According to Herat's Syria's Air Defenses confronted in aerial aggression from Israel that targeted an airbase in the country center. Late Tuesday that's directly from Herat's the official quoted by the state news agency Synon- John said the attack targeted the t four airbase in Homs province. Shortly after ten PM local time the official said the attack only caused material damage to the base. Get this saying. Most rockets were intercepted while only four landed in the target area Well that's interesting resting. So we're seeing rockets fired by Israel and Syria. According to what this person is saying at the same time that the same old rockets are being fired in Iraq I wonder if we should make a connection there right the same rockets that the denied being behind Right I mean obviously this could just be somebody saying rockets they missiles which does happen quite frequently or it could be somebody admitting that these were rockets and it was in fact Israel or somebody doing the same thing with the same weapons to carry out the same agenda and that should at least put the possibility your mind that this has been Israel firing these rockets interact Iraq all along and again. According to Herat's Israel's carried out dozens of airstrikes on Syria over the past years but rarely comments on what targets understand this Herat's base openly saying the exactly what even the. US government has denied pretending like no. They're not bombings. Oh that's not happening. uh-huh why because it's completely integrated illegal for them to continue bombing Syria without a declaration of war and without any kind of actual legitimate reason to do so now. In June Syrian state media reported that Israeli missiles were fired toward the same base a day after Israel struck Syrian targets in retaliation they claim for rocketfire toward the Golan Heights which which is Syrian territory. So they thought they basically said that they had rockets fired at Syria and they fought back at Syria area right. Obviously the point is they think going heights as their territory. Despite the fact that there's numerous resolutions that say that can't be possible and the fact that no one has the right to just hand somebody else's territory Tori to somebody else but that doesn't matter to Israel in the US government. Why because they're powerful they just don't care? The law doesn't matter a lot as a matter about anything doesn't matter about Sola Mani. The law doesn't doesn't matter about the treaties the resolutions the or any of these things law doesn't matter right. The law is a tool to be used against the week. Donald Trump will basically say this when he talks to you right. When you see these interviews like he gets real close to basically just saying you know to victor go the spoils right? That's where the mentality is today to people were said to have died in the strike and two more were wounded on this past one. Sorry that was disjointed. I was continuing what I was reading but the point is that people died in this last attack and attack where Syria are. You was attacking for them occupying their own territory. Syrian territory. People even dying. I mean just look at this map of different locations of bombings. All of those are illegal. In every sense of the word. There is no way that any of these can be legal because understand this is this is what they're claiming that they are preemptively actively self defending themselves that's actually their claim but you see all of the chaos around the claim from the US. Why does that not happen with Israel? Why are we not concerned that they're not proving their imminent threat right? Because it doesn't matter anymore they just kind of casually floats the idea that they're always defending themselves and just gets ignored every possible way. This is a legal war. Crimes attacks on civilians people die every time I mean even under the claims we're talking about from the US government attacking Iraq of their imminent threat. They also killed civilians. They killed innocent policemen. But why does that not matter. Oh because we had to kill the evil terrorist right. So that's all good. This is literally. Are we the only thing that they had to say. We'll did bad things so we had to just take him out because he deserved it right. He deserved it. Are you the moral arbiter of the world. The very the people that have actually violated basically every standard agreement. And it's just. It's unbelievable that we can even be in this position now. I want to end today by going through a few more things here that I just kind of had lined up that I wanted to include because it was you know like I said the last time I there's some things I wanted to and throw in at the end so I didn't take too long and of course we're going to be following up with this missile story I I. I think it's ridiculous for me at this point did not recognize that they are obviously obviously trying to sell you on what they're told to sell you right. Here's the narrative its them. It's around missile. Right how could they possibly have proven that by now. These people supposed journalists. I are well aware that that's not definitive. But they're saying it is because that's what they're supposed to do he just has to be clear to us. And then tying that with all the stuff we talked about today and L. Stuff we always talk about and the fact that these people have lied about more things than we could possibly counts and then at the story of Sulejmani and the lies that they built up and how they made the stress that it was an imminent threat. Things were just about to happen and we had to act. Because that's what they knew would sell the American people. We can't allow Americans to be in danger right but now it's kind of not the case right well. Killing Sulejmani was actually part of a broader strategy applied to China and Russia. Oh really so. How in the world could that possibly be an imminent threat when it was planned as we know seven months before right it's just obviously not the case they content? That's why they continue to dance around the argument they say well you know I knew it was going to happen and it was going to happen here and there and where did you know where who our note. We didn't know any of that but we knew it was going to happen. And then they get pressed on it and angry right. There is no such thing in this argument. There is nothing that they knew about that. The new is that he was on a diplomatic mission. And that's actually been proven. Now we know based on what Monte is put out there that he was on a diplomatic mission in Iraq and that trump knew he was there and I argue what the Indra Israeli intelligence was was the lie that there was something about to happen. And that's probably what they used to trick. Donald trump right. The argument was well Israel. Israel gave US intelligence that there's something about to happen right exactly like they lied about the first time that bulletin said there was an imminent threat which we all know wasn't it was boats moving in Romanian ports right so the intelligence that came from from Israel was not where he was because they knew where he was. They were well aware because he didn't fly in secret. That was also proven so what they told him if there was really any Israeli intelligence at all. was that this is about to happen so we need to do something about it and of course that's exactly what they did and I argue that POMPEII. AOL The experts of the world. They knew this was a lie. They didn't care.

That's something than which which I'm open till two until after the opening arguments including John Bolton. Yes yeah I mean he's someone who I would like to hear from so the numbers have moved on this quickly. Now a majority of Americans seem to agree a new Quinnipiac poll finds that sixty six percent of respondents. Abundance say they want to hear from Bolton.

Trump officials struggle to defend claims of embassy plots

"Keeping him on a State Department officials tell C. N. N.'s Kylie Atwood that department personnel involved in embassy. Security were not made aware of any such threats to force specific embassies and they weren't alone. Neither was the secretary of Defense Mark. Asper who spent much of Sunday morning on the Washington talkshows trying to explain the president's it's clan for the president didn't say there was a tangible. He didn't cite a specific piece of evidence. What he says he probably he believes one? I I didn't see one with regard to four embassies so he didn't see a imminent attack on with regard to for embassies that was yesterday today. The president and says it really doesn't matter. The irony is seen in global affairs analyst. Max Boot writes in The Washington Post. There actually are a number of legitimate justifications for killing Sulejmani the president could have turned to you if you weren't so invested in what now appears to be dramatic but increasingly questionable one boot rights what the administration is doing legally and perhaps even strategically justifiable.

The House Speaker and Senate Minority Leader in front of Iranian flag. Big Dresses you see them. Join US now senator. Tim Kaine Democratic. Virginia's introduce the war powers resolution on Iran. Senator Kaine the fact that this ministration when all else fails is trying to come up with an explanation. The Nation has now turned to just insulting Democrats in a way that at the same time. He claims to be standing with the Iranian people. He is draping being. You Know Democrats in in garb that is worn by Iranians and that's an insult according to the president. Well look. He's insulting insulting Democrats but Anderson the real issues. He's insulting all of Congress and the Constitution. The constitution says we shouldn't go to war without deliberation by Congress and when the administration briefers came last week many days after the Sulejmani strike to finally brief us. They were contemptuous of Congress. They acted like we were an annoyance. Rather than we were part of the constitutional framework. The reason that Congress is supposed to declare. War is a so we don't rush into it and be if we're going to order order our best and brightest or risk their lives at risk their health. It should be based upon a debate in full view of the American public. Where we end up saying this is a war? That's in the national interest. The the president wants to insult not just Democrats with stupid juvenile tweets. He's insulting all of Congress by pretending the Congress doesn't doesn't have a role in more making do you. You believe the explanation is coming from the White House specifically the president saying this all the money was targeting four embassies or no no no absolutely not no I think when when the evidence was is presented to us last week in the classified setting. I can't talk about the discussions there but I can tell you this. It added up too far less than an imminent threat. And that's the real key issue. The president can always defend the nation against an imminent attack without seeking anybody's permission. But if he wants to go on offense and wage war against another nation or a group he's got to come to Congress for permission he didn't want to seek permission so they tried to suggest that there was this imminent threat but as you point out it's falling apart. The President President makes up this thing about four embassies. We heard nothing about that. And the State Department itself in the embassies affected were not given notice that they were at risk so money was obviously a you. Know a thug. Killer Rod guy for the deaths of many Americans and many many others what would have been wrong about killing him and and just saying well you know in general he's plots attacks and he plots Actions against US interests. Would that have been okay well. Look here's the situation. It wasn't just the killing. The Sola Mani Anderson it was that they killed him without notifying Congress or seeking congressional national approval when there's never been a declaration of war against Ron and they killed him on Iraqi soil Iraq as an ally of ours and they've objected to the US turning Iraq into a like a coliseum where the US and Iran will wage war to the detriment of Iraqi. So what you've ended up doing is nobody said that souleymane he's gone bad actors. Sure but this president has rushed us to the brink of war where Iran and the United States are now. Inflicting battlefield casualties zero on the other without being a plane with Congress and with the American public we got lied into a war with Iraq in two thousand and two and now everybody realizes is that the administration said there were weapons of mass destruction of the work. The last thing we need to do is to be lied into another war with claims of imminent threats. That didn't exist. The sheer a number of inconsistencies that are routinely coming out of the administration. I mean outright lies whatever you WANNA call it. Are you concerned about the message. It sends sends to both allies and episodes of both I. The allies begged US stick with diplomatic deal against Ron. You curtail their nuclear your program and you've maintained all of your ability to sanction the other behavior so we have we have really messed up our relations with our allies by walking out of a deal that we worked on together with them as well as the president's horrible remarks about so many of our allies. Now we've threatened the relationship with Iraq as you know Anderson this is a relationship shipped the US has earned with blood and treasure sacrificed on behalf of the Iraqis especially in the battle against Isis. And now Iraq is asking the US us to leave the country because we we ignored their objections to doing military strikes on Iraqi soil. So yes we have made our allies mad. We're emboldening our adversaries. Russia Iran and China just a joint naval exercises in the Gulf. These are nations. That don't have a good. The history of relationships with each other but the president's actions are driving our adversaries together and this is exactly why the framers of the Constitution said look war. I should be deliberated about carefully in front of the whole view of the American public because we shouldn't be ordering our troops to risk their lives and health unless Congress is willing to put their thumbprint on it.

Trump officials struggle to defend claims of embassy plots

"Keeping him on a State Department officials tell C. N. N.'s Kylie Atwood that department personnel involved in embassy. Security were not made aware of any such threats to force specific embassies and they weren't alone. Neither was the secretary of Defense Mark. Asper who spent much of Sunday morning on the Washington talkshows trying to explain the president's it's clan for the president didn't say there was a tangible. He didn't cite a specific piece of evidence. What he says he probably he believes one? I I didn't see one with regard to four embassies so he didn't see a imminent attack on with regard to for embassies that was yesterday today. The president and says it really doesn't matter. The irony is seen in global affairs analyst. Max Boot writes in The Washington Post. There actually are a number of legitimate justifications for killing Sulejmani the president could have turned to you if you weren't so invested in what now appears to be dramatic but increasingly questionable one boot rights what the administration is doing legally and perhaps even strategically justifiable. All trump has to do is come clean with the American people instead. The president seems to be doing the opposite. And when that doesn't work doing this retweeting a doctor photo.

"sola mani" Discussed on Here & Now

"From NPR and WB YOU are. I'm Tanya Moseley. I'm Robin Young. It's here and now house speaker. Nancy Pelosi plans to meet with Democrats tomorrow to talk about an impeachment trial. Republicans publican's are trying to clarify the president's uncorroborated claim that Iranian General Qassem Sulaimaniyah was killed. Because he was about to attack four American embassies today day. President Trump tweeted out. It doesn't matter how imminent Soleimani had a bad history. Iranians angry about the assassination furious at their own leaders from mistakenly downing that that Ukrainian airliner killing one hundred seventy six people. Let's bring in Senator. Chris Murphy a Democrat from Connecticut on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee senator. Where in in your view are we now on Iran? I think we are right now. In a fairly precarious position We can talk about the lack of intelligence about an imminent threat. Read that led up to the attack on Sola Mani but probably the most serious consequence of that is that the Iraqis now I want. US forces out of that country about five thousand troops there that are continuing to take the fight to isis. Obviously one of the most brutal terrorist organizations in the world that is in the process of regrouping today and if the United States is kicked out of Iraq and then it has real upside for Isis. They will be able to get stronger downside for US national security interests. So that's maybe what I worry most about today but the Intel in the analysis of it shifts. I also really worried about this administration's credibility I mean it is really exceptional to mislead the American public. About why you struck out against it's another country and I think they've got sort of be very clear about this soon whether there really wasn't imminent attack or whether they just wanted to kill Qassams Sulamani and did it when they had the opportunity because the worst thing you can do when it comes to the national security power the president of the American people about why you're putting our troops at risk overseas as you will defense secretary mark. Esperer tried to clarify the president's remarks that he believed the general was planning attacks on four. US embassies embassies here is on CBS. Being pressed for details by face the nation host Margaret Brennan probably could have been that is that sounds more like an assessment assessment then a specific tangible threat with a decisive piece of intelligence or the president didn't say a tangible he didn't say the specific piece of evidence that's what he says he probably he believes. Are you saying one. I didn't see one with regard to four embassies. I didn't see one with regard to for embassies now. You were briefed by Espera. Last Wednesday just is to back that up. Did he mention imminent attacks on embassies. Then no we were in a seventy five minute briefing. If they had evidence of of planned attacks against embassies would have mentioned it because they were getting press. Pretty hard by senators on their lack of information regarding an imminent threat and it's not just that trump trump said that there was a threat against embassy secretary of state pump. Heo said that at the end of last week as well and so I think this is. I've never seen this. I've never seen excuse me. I'm so sorry to interrupt but we have seen this in that in the war in Iraq we saw claims of weapons of mass destruction. That didn't exist. Well I guess what I was going to say is that I've never seen a secretary of defense. So clearly conflicting the rationale for a military strike being given by the Secretary of state which speaks to the dysfunction in this administration of course we've seen prior administrations misconstrue intelligence intelligence in the lead up to war. Which is why we all have to be very clear that only Congress has the power to declare war not the president and I also worry that we're not done I? I just think that the Iranians or proxies in Iraq may take out further future strikes. And that's why we need to make it clear right now that it's only the United United States Congress that can make the decision moving forward to take additional strikes against Iran or their proxies. We want to quickly get your thoughts on the possible impeachment trial which may start end of this week next week or not at all. President trump has been tweeting out. Now there should be no trial and on ABC. Yesterday House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi criticized the Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell for signing onto a resolution dismissing this case if Pelosi doesn't send over the two articles which she has not sent over yet dismissing is a cover up if they want to go that route again. They're senators who are thinking now about voting for witnesses or not they will have to be accountable. Call for not having a fair. Do you think the Democrats have the votes in the muscle to get witnesses like John Bolton. I don't know ah I think we're going to have to wait until those votes are before the United States Senate. I have a hard time figuring out how Republican senators could vote to willingly box their ears and closed their eyes. When John Bolton clearly says he has a story to tell ultimately they may vote to acquit the president? But I think it'll be really hard to tell their constituents that they didn't want information that was being offered to the United States Senate so I think it's going to take a Democrats bringing votes up on the Senate floor to get witnesses and documents and I think there's a good chance we'll have more than four Republican votes. But I really don't know Senator Chris Murphy. The Democrat from Connecticut. Thank you so much. Thanks millions of Puerto Ricans are waiting to see if president trump will authorize much needed aid after several earthquakes devastated parts of the island. The latest I five point nine magnitude quake on Saturday the strongest. Since last week six point four earthquake thousands of people are still in shelters and many others are sleeping sleeping outside joining us now for more. Is Michael Fernandez. Executive Director of chorus a nonprofit based in Puerto Rico. He's in Catania near San Juan. On and Michael. You're worried about the impact on school. Children tell us more. I think that we may very well be facing an educational L. Crisis in terms of how the we manage classes being reinitiated not only in the towns that were severely impacted by the earthquake but for the rest of the system as we are conducting evaluations of infrastructure. We will be learning whether or not dying structure suffered damage but also if that infrastructure restructure would be able to withstand on earthquake. And this is something that's very present in the mind off every Puerto Rican since we have all seen the images of the school that collapsed collapsed during the earthquake of January seventh and so the logistics of. How do we offer a safe shelter for our students to learn is something that we need to start thinking about in proactively planning to consider you know how we can do it in the best way? Yeah most of the children had been on holiday. I was during the holiday season when these earthquakes hit and now they can't go back to school. you're nonprofit is opening in community centers to host workshops to help the kids manage everything going on in process. What they're seeing? Yes ma'am so. We are opening on extended hours to receive students. were out of school and try to help them to get back to some sort of a daily routine. We're basing this. On the experience of Hurricane. Maria were schools for out of session for several months. And we know the impact that has on the emotional civility of our students in our families. There was a deep impact to school all infrastructure after Hurricane Maria but there were also the closing of nearly two hundred schools even before that Because of this deep and prolonged debt crisis. Can you talk a little bit more about in the light of all of that why. This is so significant. That's I if you look at the past five years. Our economy has failed. Then we had hurricanes hit a mine muddy We had a political crisis where we were able to house the governor over the summer summer now this. I think it's been a lot of profound changes to our daily lives and our projections for the future so it it wastes heavily on everybody emotionally emotionally and physically. It doesn't mean that Inter our spirit is down. It's just that we've been through a lot in the past five years seismologists say that these quakes could continue for a couple of weeks so there's a lot of uncertainty here. Can you just describe to me. The sentiment and how people are feeling reacting there right now. I think that there's too many motions that have come together and one is one. Oh thanks -iety because it's very hard to predict whether or not there will be another earthquake and whether or not or infrastructure will withstand but it is also that the sense of resiliency that we all have that help us overcome the challenges of Hurricane Maria the economic on making political challenges that the country has faced than now again with this earthquake our spirit of perseverance very present and that would be independent of any declaration Asian of the precedent that we know has previously taken a discriminatory stance towards the island. And so obviously we would love for that declaration to take place But we're willing and able to one needs to get done in spite of any form of government whether it's our local government or the federal government at the same time being able able to have that funding. I'm sure would be a great help in all of this to you What are you hearing about damage assessment? So far well that everything thing is backed up. Because it's any assessment that had been made previous to Saturday needs to be done again because of that on on Saturday and I'm surprised with some of our infrastructure where we thought we were a lot better off than where we are. Which means that? That will alter our contingency plan since arms of how to manage Josh this situation and again I I think that what you know one of the main areas besides the crisis that is going on in the in the south is how do we restored our public school system. I know the Department of Education is active in working on those plans but in terms of witches. It's just a complicated scenario. Dario with a lot of uncertainty Michael Fernandez is Executive Director of Carson nonprofit based in Puerto Rico. Michael thank.

Defense secretary seems to contradict Trump on embassy threat

"Now. America's defense the secretary is refusing to endorse the president's claims about the specific threat against US embassies posed by Iran. The president didn't say there was a tangible. He didn't cite a specific piece of evidence. What he says he probably he believes? I didn't see one with regard to four embassies. What I'm I'm saying is I share the president's view that probably my expectation was they were going to go after our embassies because the killing of Sola Mani the probably probably most influential military leader across the Middle East for the past thirty years? That wasn't enough. You had to make things up. Of course he had to make things up because they they made things up from from the very beginning the attack was imminent. They were coming for us. The Secretary of defense not have but you know so you could. You could even see last week last weekend. By the way trump administration. Why do you send people on Sunday Chefs I? It's it's not like anybody ever leaves and they're like wow. That worked out well for US every week. Jonathan Lemere you should why every every week. Why do they do by the way the Patriots still out? Yeah the playoffs. They didn't let us back in. They did not let you back in this weekend. But let's just say last weekend weekend you actually could tell from Pompeo's answers or just making up this stuff about like POMPEII was having to push back and and it became very obvious after his fourteenth interview that Sunday that there was nothing imminent about it and now we of course find out that the SECDEF that Donald Trump was making things up about going to attack eighty seven. NBC's it's just just no truth to it. From the beginning of this administration one of the things that the president prizes most is the willingness of AIDS to go on television to defend him even when it is defending spending a falsehood. So we have seen this now both last two weekends where top aides Pompeo as you say and this week Espera have gone out there and done the Sunday show circuit to make their case to to try to have to reverse engineer justify the decision. The president has already made. We've seen in the past over outright lies. We've seen Stephen Miller and others walk up on the Sunday shows and talk about the millions of illegal votes on other day. She one of her children. I will not I will say which. Why do you lie? Why when telling the truth would be so much better in unnecessary as you say? I don't want to question the killing of Albuque- dotty but at the president had to sell it with these details. SORTA make him tougher. Look the and make the terrorist leader look weaker with the whimpering in the crime details that no one was ever able to confirm where there was no audio ability for the president into have heard that now I mean this this those are in some ways smaller things than this. This is justifying a military attack could could and still couldn't have and still could have destabilise a region and yet and now they're seemingly falsified intelligence. We know that senators and others say they were not presented with any classified material just about threats embassies

"sola mani" Discussed on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter

"Listening in on one of the League's most plugged invoices in Kristen and not to mention getting the perspective from a two-time WNBA BA MVP and one of the most decorated athletes to ever play the game in Kansas. We talked to some of our friends from around the game. Pop Culture and more search for lead low and Parker and subscribe inscribed today. Hey welcome back to reliable sources. We all know the expression the fog of war to believe in times of conflict stories start. Foggy information is scarce but then starts to clear up some time and distance the truth emerges with the killing of Iranian General Qassam so Imani the story is just getting gene foggier and foggier overtime the president of course lacks credibility he is known for his constant lies misleading claims and in the context of the US Iran wrong conflict trump and his allies are coming up with new and conflicting justifications for the Sola Money Strike on Thursday morning trump told a crowd that he did it because the Iranians wanted to blow up the US embassy in Baghdad that perhaps that was the imminent threat just a few hours later. Trump said more suggesting sola mommy was targeting other US embassies. The intelligence has not been provides the public but this all culminated in his Friday. Sit Down with Fox News host Laura Ingram. Let's start to play the sound bite. large-scale attacks plan for other other embassies and if those were planned that's a smart question Ingram's bring up an important point was the threat broader. Here's how trump read. I believe it would have been four four embassies and I think that probably Baghdad already started so there we go. He's talking about the protests outside the Baghdad embassy he says that was underway underway. He's fearing a new Benghazi but these four embassies and he says it again later on listening but I think it would have been four embassy could have been military bases could have been. I say they have been military bases. This is big news. Laura Ingraham's definitely GONNA follow up right right. Why is Nancy Pelosi describing her briefing as dismissive in disdainful? No follow up there moving onto the Democrats. Instead she's missing the story that's right in front of her but this comment from trump four embassies. It became big news right away. Look it was all over the place even though he hedged it with phrases like I believe and it could've it would've been. He's he's using these kind of weasel words I think he says I believe sometimes. In order to promote an idea that doesn't actually have backup but the press many networks this this idea was repeated and repeated watch awesome saw money was planning to blow up the US embassy in Baghdad and three other embassies for embassies for US embassies four embassies. He's four four this going on and on but members of Congress were not briefed on this four embassies threat. They don't know what trump was talking about aids have been telling in newspapers and your times Washington etc.. They don't know where trump was getting this four embassies line this these shifting answers these claims that they can't be called lies we donald trump is lying. But there's this possibility these just making it up as he goes along this scary possibility that he just makes it up. And what is notable about that claims. The media makes things up right He. He likes to say the media makes up sources invents anonymous sources that don't exist is he projecting here's what he said. Later later on with Laura Ingraham. The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that after the strike. Mr Trump told associates. He was under pressure to deal with General Solomonic. Take him out from. Gop Senators he views as important supporters in the coming impeachment trial in the Senate associates. Said sounds like okay. Got A laker here on the White House. What is they they just made it up? It's fake news car makers they just make it up. They're all very dishonest. Most of them are really really disarming. Eighty percent or dishonest. I mean really dishonest. They made that story up. And there he is making a percentage right about who's dishonest but listen ingram focused on leakers. Instead of asking about the core part of the reporting and it's not just the Wall Street Journal reported that impeachment was on trump's mind when thinking about the strike. The New York Times is out this weekend with the same reporting that they reported days earlier. This is out there for multiple news sources and the most obvious explanation. Is That The Times and the Journal in other news outlets have reliable sources that are telling them. It's information it's like comes razor. The easiest explanation is usually the most accurate these news outlets have sources they they rely on they published the reporting. They're not making it up for the president his reputation his credibility suggest otherwise Let's talk more about this with. GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor. Bill Weld Governor. Thanks for being here some other questions for you but first on this issue and Sola Mani Strike. Didn't the president is the projector and chief. Does he make up things like four embassies were targeted. Oh I think. He projects constantly whenever he's Accused of something. He goes right back into the person accuses them of being guilty of the same anything. It's a recognizable trope and He's he's there all the time. I mean you couldn't make this stuff up. Couldn't make it up. Well does seem like you make some of these things up up though. Look I don't think anybody's trying to suggest that you know Sola Mommy was a good guy. There's all these lies out there. People saying the media's on the side of the Iranians and then trying to trying to excuse this this terroristic behavior. It's about this is not about that. This is about knowing whether the United States is making decisions based on accurate intelligence which I thought was trump cared about right. Well I I think the president has a loose grasp on the truth on facts and I I agree with you. I think he does make things up as he goes along. He's like one of these the people who will say anything to get out of a conversation when the press asked him a question. The absolutely doesn't know the answer. He doesn't care what he says he'll say the first thing that comes into his head mhm what's it been like for you in recent months on the campaign trail trying to drum up attention for your candidacy in the GOP. Primary feel like you're running against not just trump at the pro trump media as well. Well well you know I people say what about Fox News and I've been on Fox News plenty in the old days. This is not about Fox News. This is about bound. J. Trump who demands exclusive loyalty from everybody and now we know the one bit of good news. Today is We know that he wants reporters to roam free in Iran. But the the only problem is he doesn't want them to roam free in the United States because he says to us a free press is the enemy of the people. And you know starting with Jim Komi as far as I can tell all this president has demanded not only loyalty exclusive loyalty From from everybody and You know you're not not only got to be loyalty to him. You gotta be loyal to the truth. We saw that not only was Komi but when he instructed. The director of National Intelligence former senator. Dan Coats to lie for him. In connection with the Muller probe and three other people told them to create phony documents and they said. We can't do that. That would be a lie. He said what's your point. He thinks that unless people are exclusively exclusively loyal to him and complimenting him and praising him all the time they're they're the enemy. I'm afraid I mean. The man is beset by demons. And I'm glad I don't have them by the EH include Fear and anger and insecurity but It's you know the the school bus driver test at one of your previous guests mentioned. I think that's a pretty good test. Would you want this guy driving driving your kid's school bus but are you finding that on the campaign trail. You're reaching primary voters who who agree with you. You know the domain register road in new editorial that this this campaign your candidacies a chance for Republicans to show. Values are most important to them but hasn't that bus driven away hasn't ship already sailed. No my wife and I just got back from five very pleasurable days In in Iowa we were very well received everywhere we went. We went to a lot of colleges and universities of Social Service Organizations Eh boards. And everybody thought this is great. The one casualty. If you have media who are unwilling to entertain Appearances by people people like me is that then it's depriving Republicans of of the opportunity to know that there is a Republican alternative to trump who is an economic conservative. But if you know I was fair shake from the press. Yeah I I you know over over the years. I've always thought the press was more than fair to me me. I came up as a prosecutor and so depressing our both after the same game which is to tear down the temple walls of political corruption So I've had a good relationship with the press press my entire life and You know you can't complain about not getting into one show or another I had a lot of stuff As I say with Bill O'Reilly and Fox in the past even Sean Hannity Mr Fox News. Now when I got elected in Massachusetts Sean I were complete buddies and the reason was I had succeeded. Three terms of Michael Dukakis. Thanks right right you mentioned Fox. Let me put up with Tulsi. Gabbard said one of the Democratic candidates. She said she goes on Fox to get through to trump. It allows her speak to trump. Do View Fox that way as well kind of interesting well the shows. I've been on most recently or judge Andrew Napolitano. Something of a libertarian. As I hi.

"sola mani" Discussed on The Dan Bongino Show

"Today you're going to love it all right moving on Greg Company company love them so just quickly the Wall Street Journal piece up today and I liked the Wall Street for EONS. I got a free subscription when I was in college and I I don't think I've missed the op-ed column and I'm not even kidding in like ten years. I saved if I miss them so I like the little deano centrist for me especially in the immigration issues but still usually make good points. But I gotTa tell you. I think they missed the mark on this completely now. If you missed yesterday's show go back and watch it please. Because it's important. I discuss the importance based on a leash Smith article about how how president trump decided to hit Sulamani. And why that that matters but I want to address it in light of this article the Wall Street Journal and kind of just quickly yesterday's point again because it's an important one. It's by their editorial board. It says Tehran's retaliation and trump's reply. Why early returns showed deterrence beats appeasement with Iran? They're right I don't disagree with their point but I think they missed the mark a little bit with this portion pushing the peace where they say this. I'll put the screen shot up on our youtube again. YouTube dot com slash. Bongino if you want to follow along on video. Here's a quote from the piece it says the showdown with Iran is far from over which I agree with by the way and the mullah's may strike again in the coming months which I agree with as well I covered on yesterday. Show using proxy forces that give it deniability on that score. The president missed an opportunity to make clear that an attack on Americans by Iranian link groups would be treated as an attack by Iran. This listen with all due respect to the Wall Street Journal editorial. You're very smart I again. I'm not trying to take unnecessary potshots at it's not nearly accurate curate. Follow what they're saying. They're they're saying that in the president's speech yesterday and his reply which was terrific by the way it was done on the in the White House east wing which is very rare. When I was a secret service agent? We never did speeches in that specific spot. We do them. I'm in in on the on the Far East. I forget the names of the rooms. I've been gone from the White House so long but very rarely in the state floor like that behind the with with the Blue Room right behind him very rarely. I mean it happened but brand but he gave a great speech. I Say Wall Street Journal saying well. He should have said if you attack us with one of your iranian-linked terror groups then we're going to attribute that attack to you Iran folks if you caught yesterday's show and the excellent article by Lee Smith and tablet MAG which is in yesterday's shown us but worth your time that's exactly what president trump did did he have have to say it so follow me here the journals kind of not take shot him. I don't want to be hyperbolic but saying trump missed the mark because he should have specifically. We Sat Joe if you attack us with your money. Your proxy terror groups. We're going to blame you. Folks Strike President Trump ordered through our brave military that hit Sola. Monty and Iraq also killed the Iraqi Iraqi Iraqi not Iranian Iraqi proxy leader. I pretty much think trump sent the message that proxy attacks by your four surrogate are going to be treated like attacks by Iran. Now did he have. I mean lead Joe. Am I missing something. I have to say what I thought. They both wound up in the same bodybags. Yeah I mean what what does he did he have to announce that now please again in the interest of time. I don't want to Redo yesterday's show. Please watch it but I addressed estes. Exact point the lease Smith piece that not a lot of these folks. Don't want to give trump the credit because they think he's scenario just like they did with Reagan and you have grossly underestimate. They tried that during the campaign and he promptly Hillary Clinton and all the other people thought he was an idiot what he did was tactical brilliance. He didn't wait for Sulejmani to be alone. They terminated aided Sola Mani in the car while he was with the Iraqi proxy guy. Saying you deal with Sola money. You're not going to be able to say anymore all. We're just a proxy group. That's not official Iranian action by killing them. Both he is clearly whether he said it in a statement statement or not said any attacks by your proxies will be treated as attacks by the Iranian government. Again I'm I'm not trying to be fake. highbrow elitist not not trying to be the high end totem pole of foreign policy analysis. I'm just suggesting something that that I thought I thought was fairly obvious. I think the journal Mr Mark on did he really have to make that announcement. He killed the proxy leader with the Iranian Iranian. I don't know what other statement you need to make. Would you rather not have killed them. And made a statement about it or kill them and not make because they thought about it. I really think you missed the mark on that one big time. What trump did is dramatically change decades of US policy that had said in the past right Iran wink nod and pretend we know look? We don't see anything if your proxy groups do it. But you're Arabians don't do it specifically we're GONNA pretend there wasn't you the strike on Sola Mati clearly throws that strategy out the window and says you sponsor a group that hits us. We're coming for you to you. Don't have to agree with it..

"From Radio Vermont. It's the Dave Graham show on. WD It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most to you. Now here's your host Dave Graham. Good Morning Vermont. It is Wednesday January the eighth two thousand and and twenty supplied to have you with us this morning. We are going to focus pretty much the entire Dave Graham show here today on the situation in the Middle East Where last Yesterday the yesterday last evening Iran fired missiles at us. Military bases in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of last week of of General Qasim Sulejmani the number two official He's described in Iran and this of course caused a lot of outrage in Iran and elsewhere in the Middle East there was talk possibly a couple of days ago of the United States. Being the United States actually has been asked by the Iranian by the Iraqi parliament. Parliament To pull out of that country and we're going to get an update on the situation here with the a new friend. axios DOT COM is an excellent online online news site which serves up a really comprehensive daily report on the top stories of the day. It's well worth a visit They do so in a style which is Very accessible accessible and and is not super dense you can you can be cut yourself a well informed even if you're in a hurry and they do a great job and so we've got the world editor of axios on the line with us this morning to kick us off. and that is Dave lawler. Good Morning Dave great to be with you good morning and give us an update here. Now we had these these How many missiles were fired by Iran? Do we know we had approximately fifteen missiles was what the Pentagon gone was saying Immediately after the attack eleven of which I believe hit two airbase airbases in Iraq Doc Most of them al-Assad airbase which is a large airbase used by the US in in the west of the country But but currently the. US has not reported any casualties. So when I was covering this live as it happened last night and it looked like this could be a very significant collation from Iran. It looks slightly less severe at the moment. But we still don't have full now. Do you think that there was any I don't know punch pulling here. Were they trying to miss or Is Was it just pure luck that there were no casualties or our people reading this thing. So Iraq has has said that they got a heads up before this happened shortly after midnight. which would have been an hour before? Iran launched the missiles. They got a heads up. That are retaliation. Asian is starting The US has said that they put all of these bases on high alert and took necessary precautions ahead of time so the US would have had five days since the strike on Sola Mani to consider how to protect its troops and bases like this. So it's very difficult to divine Iranian motives here. But I think you could make the case that this was a big forceful looking responsive on taking direct action not going through its proxies. He's using its military launching from Iran into Iraq And yet they probably could have calculated that this would not be Certainly not as this destructive as if they had done it in the immediate aftermath when you would have had more troops exposed to these missiles but I mean it's hard to say that you can calculate that you won't hurt or kill anyone when you're launching this many ballistic missiles at airbases But they must they must have had some calculation of the fact that if they were to strike directly at a number of US troops the US response would have been swift and quite forceful so there was there was some punch pulling probably on the audience. And and I mean is interesting to me that the I think they were under some domestic internal pressure really to show to to do some kind of a show of force here to send a shot across the bow of the United States. Perhaps and to say you know we're not gonNA take the death of Sulejmani lying down And yet this. This seems like it might be cooler heads prevail and so on a place to call it off right so so Iran has been projecting itself as a regional power in the Middle East. It's difficult to do that if you allow your really your best known own internationally. All the the supreme leader The ayatollah is perhaps better known. You know internationally. In countries around the region solely money was really a sort of a celebrity general he was very well known figure revered commander so to have him killed and not hit back would have been really untenable for for Iran so they have now done something. They had the supreme leader in the command center last night as this attack happened in terms of the domestic political picture are here they clearly are posturing that this was a very strong force for response that shows that Iran is a power and in fact Iran's media has been claiming naming a number of US casualties. That doesn't seem to be true. But that's what they're telling Their people so you're right that this is something that they needed to do they. They obviously calculated that they needed to do both for the Iranian public but also for the public's around the region to show that they're not gonNA take this lying down but you know president trump came after this said all is well You know he's obviously seeing the reports that this was not as destructive as was feared originally Iran. Signaling has been that they're basically ready to keep this up if the US retaliates but they're done at least militarily militarily you know for the time being so if president trump comes out with his statement which we're expecting sometime this morning and said you know this was something that we can essentially except from Iran or some version of that then you may actually see these missile strikes last night. Be The thing that that kind of generates an offramp fergal sides. Yeah well you know I think most folks have including myself i. I'll I'll confess a little bit of a zero interest in keeping the peace around the world in so let's hope so I mean it's just it would be It would be a way to to get this over with and and and return to some mm-hmm Maybe something a little closer to normalcy. Whatever that whatever whatever that is these days and I wonder if if your sense of Of how how this plays politically in the in the United States You know as as as things stand now. Let's let's assume both sides take the off ramps and they and they And and this thing is is basically over Is this a win for president trump. So it's very interesting to see how this is playing on Fox News which is obviously obviously Where president trump consumes a lot of of his news last night? You had in the immediate wake of the Iranian attack. You had Sean Hannity and other Fox News personalities saying you know Iran doesn't know what is getting itself into here. They're gonNA hit back hard but you also have other voices on that network work basically say one thing one of the things we like about. President trump is that he doesn't WanNa get US involved in. These quagmires is in the Middle East. You know he's a you said. Iraq was the biggest mistake ever are. He wants to pull out of Syria He. He'd like to pull troops back and so this might be an opportunity to do that. So there may be sort of a An Angel on one shoulder during a double on the other depending on which you know depending on what you personally think is the right response here but you know I think president trump can now point to the fact that the US has killed what it viewed as you know. A singular menace in the Middle East. Somebody who had American blood on his hand and somebody who you know whether he was planning an imminent attack on the US or not certainly was coordinating in ways that would hurt. US interest in the middle if he is off the battlefield and if trump can say all we had to pay in return with these strikes that didn't didn't kill any the Americans. You know that's a trade. I'm willing to make now. I am not sure we've heard the last from Iran or its proxies here. I mean Iran tongue contend to take time and in retaliating for things and there are things they can do in the cyber realm. There are things they can do through their proxies season in You know their countries around the region and yet I think president trump may be in a position here where he can sell the immediate aftermath of this at aware. Now that depends on whether he comes out this morning and says it's over or says there's further action to come now assuming that again that that this is sort of the the end of directed confrontational hostilities or whatever firing missiles each other. Let's put it that way Assuming that but What does it? What does it mean for the Iranian? US relationship going forward. How will this thing sort of settled down back into some kind of a of a day to day would feels like a status quo. So there are two tracks in which there's esscalation between Iran and the United States one is is the as you you mentioned the the the missiles the military hostilities. The other is the nuclear dimension and that is something that we're going to have to watch because president then trump has said for quite a while. Now that what he really wants here is a big new nuclear deal with Iran that also constrains them on other fronts. That seems incredibly probably incredibly unlikely given current You know escalation and also the fact that this is an election year and every other read the nothing points toward a big Iran. US handshake sometime this year. That says you know basically. We're we're done with this whole standoff but You know if if Iran does fully leave the nuclear deal as new signal that they will give the Obama era nuclear deal. That is another area where there's going to be further confrontation between the US and Iran. So you you could see the current simmering. I mean the obviously we've been talking talking about the threat of war for the last few days right so that comes down. I think that's good news for everyone but most still have to watch what Iran does on the nuclear front and wouldn't last last question for you in terms of the back to the politics and kind of domestic implications of this in the United States I have a good friend who's a strong supporter of president trump and One of the things he's been saying for the past couple years is No new oil wars. We haven't You know the president trump isn't isn't doing this and and you know I sent him a note yesterday where I basically said well. There's no new oil wars. He's Kinda thrown a match at a simmering. One it's of course was before last night's missile firing way by Iran And I mean can can the Democrats the Democrats leg to stand on here. If they want to start Chris. I mean obviously. They're running right into replacing plays in this year and do they have something to stand on. We're in which they could basically say You know here's somebody who's promised to disentangle us from these from the Middle East in particular and in and yet this doesn't look like a any move toward disentanglement What How how how does how does that whole argument stand now? Well it depends where you sit in the Democratic primary right I think we saw Bernie Sanders. This week Point to the the fact that that Joe Biden had voted for the Iraq war and and he you know labeled payments a champion if that were essentially which you know a lot of what we're seeing in the Middle East today can be tied back to the decision to invade Iraq in two thousand and three so you know there? There is certainly a debate on the democratic side. As to to whether we should really pull back from this sort of military presence particularly in the Middle East but around the world or if we should have the kind of conventional foreign policy either that Biden and probably People to judge are You know are advocating but from trump's perspective. It's really an interesting thing. One right because I covered the two thousand sixteen campaign and he went to rallies and he basically said you can't trust the rest of these Republicans because these are the same people who sold you the Iraq war who've been you know wasting trillions of dollars in the Middle East and don't know what they're doing and trump certainly risked risked when when he made the decision to strike so Amani another war in the Middle East now that it looks like we might not end up in that direction but that was certainly foreseeable consequence consequence of that decision and so he is playing with fire in a way as somebody who has advocated for getting out of the Middle East he certainly risk getting much much more deeply involved But as to how it plays in in November. I guess we'll have to see what happens in the coming weeks and months. Well there's plenty to comment that is for sure and Dave lawler the world editor of AXIOS DOT COM. I WanNa thank you so much for joining this. It's morning it's good talking with you. Thank you appreciate it already. We are Just want to open the.

"It's the opposite of what you have in the goal stock market gold stock. Investors are cautious. They're worried that this gold louvre is in real and so they're not WANNA buy goal socks it Israel they should be buying the bitcoin move is not real. This is all a bunch of nonsense. There's no safe eight haven buying in bitcoin. This is speculators buying in bitcoin because they're taking advantage of the gold rally to try to bid up Bitcoin to say ooh look see. bitcoin is moving. This same thing happened a few months ago when the broke through. Seven member that when they're yuan broke above above seven and all of a sudden gold rallied and bitcoin rally to and the Bitcoin guys were out there. You see BITCOIN's a new safe haven it's digital goal. That's acting acting like a safe haven right except bitcoin lost all of those gains golden. Lose those gains gold added to those gains so bitcoin was not bodice. What is a safe haven? It was being marketed as a safe haven by speculators who bought it and who were looking on to dump it to anyone who was willing to buy into it. That's I was going on right now. You have this environment. You have the the whales that are able to manipulate this market higher to foam people into the bitcoin market. Because they I believe I you see it's digital goal going to the moon. Look it's above eight thousand this thing can dump at any minute and it will. We'll see maybe by the next time people listen to this podcast so forget about Bitcoin as a legitimate financial asset but in the real world of actual safe havens that institutions would would go go to their goal not US treasuries not the US dollar and that shows you that there is an inherent problem with the dollar and that problem. Mom is going to manifest itself as time goes by over this year the dollar will sell off and when that happens that's a bigger problem for US stocks and bonds. John's but it's also going to be a big positive for the global investor for what we're doing with our non-gold stocks see our goal stocks have been outperforming the US market but not our non-gold stocks. which is the bulk of what we have our money in? It's not gold stocks. Although personally I have my own money in gold stocks the non-gold stocks. But that's is because I'm willing to take that kind of risk. A lot of my clients aren't and so there's gold portfolio is a smaller percentage of their overall portfolio. But the other stocks haven't been doing as well as the US market. I think that is all going to change when the dollar's fortunes change and of course again this heightened geopolitical article risk is actually going to work against the US dollar it's going to work against the US economy. And when I spoke about the AH the killing of Sulejmani on my podcast on Friday. Somebody pointed out. I made a mistake in my analogy because I I said that when we killed him it was an act of war and I said if the shoe was on the other foot how would we feel in America if a foreign power assassinated one of our generals unrolls on our soil. And I. I really shouldn't have said on our soil because we didn't. We didn't kill Sola Mani in Iran. Dan We killed them in Iraq. But I don't think that that renders I an algae meaningless. I think it's significant. I mean how would we feel. He'll if a foreign power killed one of our top generals when he was in Canada or when he was in Mexico I mean we would be just as pissed. I mean that's that's our territory Tori. That's North America. It's right near our border and they killed one of our top guys. It wouldn't be considered an act of war and so the Iranians consider enact war. But you know this further complicates. The fact that he was on an airport in Iraq complicates the situation. Because now we put the Iraqis in a difficult position because now they had to take a vote they want to kick out the American forces. We have American troops all over Iraq as a result of the Iraq that war and kicking out Saddam Hussein. We have all these troops there and so now they kick us out. Because you know there's politically they can't stand with the US now that we've done that they have to show that they oppose this act so they have to show some Sola dougherty with with Iran and so they're voting to kick us out and now trump owner. We're not GONNA leave. You want us to leave. We're not gonNA leave unless you pay us back all the money. We spent vent building up all those basics. Which of course is never going to happen but if you remember? Donald Trump was critical of the Iraq war. He said we never should have gone to war. We never I should've been in Iraq. Okay here's his opportunity to get out and now he doesn't even want to leave so he says he didn't WanNa go there but now he doesn't want to go because the Iraqis are asking him to leave but this whole thing complicates our policy in the Middle East. We got more troops headed over there now. Not Fewer troops right. Donald Trump was supposedly going to be pulling pulling troops out of the Middle East. Now he's sending more troops there again. Another thing we're trump is doing the opposite of what he promised. which is another thing here politically that that your tastes me about this first of all right trump is getting widespread condemnation from the left for what he did and I completely discount all the criticism of the left because had brock Obama done the exact same thing trump? They all would have been applauding. Nobody would criticize Barack Obama from the left. None of the Democrats would have been critical Obama. Had he done exactly the same thing that trump did on the other hand all all the Republicans are in support of what trump did yet. If Obama did it you'd have a number of Republicans who would be against it right as I said earlier. Your podcast I think it was a mistake now. First of all according to trump they had intelligence that this guy was in Iraq. Planning some type of attack that would have killed some American somewhere. I'm not really sure what the details are supposedly. We're going to get that. But supposedly there was some valid intel all that provided the justification to kill him. Now we're supposed to believe that I mean a it's not like Donald Trump has an excellent track record of honesty. He doesn't trump lies about everything. He lies about all sorts of little things. So if he's GonNa lie about little things why wouldn't they lie about something like this and of course if he was lying about it well it'd be consistent with what's happened in the past remember. Why did we even go into Iraq? The reason we had that war was because Saddam Hussein gene supposedly possessed weapons of mass destruction. Right that's what our Intel said. We had to go there because he had weapons of mass destruction except when we got in there we didn't find any weapons of mass destruction so it was wrong so we went into war based on a lie. We'll maybe we kills Sulejmani based on an otherwise. We're we're supposed to believe this but you have always Republicans who were very skeptical of the military industrial complex of the deep state. Right right I mean even Donald Trump himself. I mean this is something that the left has dug up and I've watched this interview or recording. I'm not really sure what the circumstances were behind trump with this recording but it was in two thousand eleven and it had to do over. Who is running for reelection for twenty twelve and trump basically said that he thought thought that Barack Obama would deliberately start a war with Iran to help him get reelected that he was so desperate that he was probably GonNa lose news and so what he's going to do is start a war with Iran? And how pathetic is that that a president for political purposes would go to war. You're just to get reelected. That's what he was thinking and he was publicly saying and accusing Brcko bomb doing now. All of a sudden four years later he's president and he's starting to war with Iran and has re election is coming up so it's very curious that will waive made it. Since trump was thinking that Obama Obama would start a war with Iran to get reelected. Well maybe he started a war with Iran. He thought it was a good idea for Obama. He thought it would work for Obama so maybe he thought it would work for himself. Now I know so a lot of people think always a shoe in anyway but maybe he wanted to take out an insurance policy because typically when the wars going on patriotically everybody rallies around the current president. Because you WANNA be patriotic during a war and you know that you know the whole wag the dog that movie and so but it's so ironic roenick because trump almost always has been doing the opposite of the way he's campaign yet none of his supporters. Call him out now. I call him out. I voted voted for my. You know I was one of trump's big supporters member when the access Hollywood tape came out. Go back and listen to the podcast and I did did. I was probably the first person to go out on a limb and say I don't Care Locker Room. Talk said that before he did. I defended everything he said to billy Bush in that bus and I said there's nothing wrong with what he said and I came right. I didn't care that it was politically incorrect so I I was defending trump. When a lot of people wouldn't offend him but the problem is now when he's doing stuff that's wrong insane stuff? That's wrong. I call them out. But you have all these people that are blind and completely you know. Look at Lou Dobbs I mean look at some of these comments I used to be on Lou Dobbs this show quite a bit back in the day. Of course he stopped having me on a while ago. I don't know if that has to do with the fact that I'm not you know. I'm not a big trump lover as much as he is but he I mean he thinks trump's God I mean he says that no mortal will ever be able to live up to the trump standard. He thinks trump is the greatest president we've ever had. I mean going back to George Washington so of course does he can do no wrong right. Because he's a God writing. Gods are infallible. But you have this type of loyalty among some of the you know the real trump supporters that I think this is very unfortunate because if he goes down a lot of the right wing or supposed- free market ideology is going to really get blackened in the future and we have a socialist we have Bernie Sanders President or if we have a sympathetic congress which is a very very real no risk that the markets haven't even begun to price in right. That's another reason why I'm saying that. This goal market could have so much further a two run based on that possibility just based on the market starting to price in the potential that trump isn't reelected and we have have a socialist. What is that going to do? We're are the deficit is going to go. How many trillions and trillions of dollars and the other problem for the deficits.

"So toll Amani little bit of background which. I don't think anyone gave any any proper background. He's a hero of the Iran Iraq war. He was promoted to division commander when he was twenty three Well we've all heard he. Was You know Mr James Bond. All superstars superstars fantastic. So it becomes the commander of the Revolutionary Revolutionary Guard and then commander of the force which is It's kind of like special forces forces but it. It really has a different position from what I understand. It's above the the revolution the the Iranian or armed forces so they have kind of their own special status So during when Medina was in power the Revolutionary Guard Privatization Scheme that the the got underway and the R. G. Revolutionary Guard came in in possession or control of a lot of important organizations at economic power they were given control over border regions the secret service the Straits of Hormuz all the Revolutionary Guard. But also they had Smuggling smuggling networks money laundering really a proxy wars. That's what this guy was doing. And he was the master of the Proxy War Strategy Veggie Close Ties to Putin and you know which of course ties into everything that happened in Syria so this guy in short formidable formidable force he had they fifty thousand troops armed and trained shutting down the Gulf of Hormuz making us shoot down our own drones uh-huh over the of the Straits of the Gulf does the Straits of our Moose whether they shut down. We didn't doesn't make any difference but because of this this guy is also a political force to be reckoned for and once Kamani started tweeting back at trump which we saw with with the so called breach of the of the Green Zone and the embassy which you know the thing. It's a fortress. You cannot get in you can get into the wall if you have A. They have only get that far day. Let you and you gotta pass and you can come in. There were special forces. Their pictures cheers of special forces. There as that was taking place so no way. was there any danger of anything really happening. So that may have been part of a setup and I think when you see Khomeini and trump tweeting back and forth. WELL WE'RE GONNA kick your ass we'll kick fifty or your ass is for every one of those people you had a nineteen nineteen seventy nine. Then I knew it. The show is on. Everything's determine. It's all over. This was something that benefits Khomeini it benefits him to have this guy out of the way. Trump has wanted to have a deal with Iran and now they're just playing playing the game back and forth to make it l.. Look Real I think that this may have even been done in cahoots with the mullah's then with home. That's an interesting thesis because because if if it's true that he didn't want this money to do some plan and slow money's probably pretty much of an independent contractor at this point. He could do it anyway. Very much has to be taken out. Yes so so that could have been some back channel action saying yes okay. Why don't you blow along later now in mind? You Sola Mani was in Iraq. Let me just get my notes. Here he was in Iraq because there was bad. Had Blood with Al Amir. al-Amir is the leader of the party in Iraq. So there was already all all kinds of strife and I. I think I'll Amir actually so we're supposed to have a meeting. With Sola. Mani he cancels sends ends his deputy who also got ICED in this in this drone strike so took out his own possible political foe or adversary. Second in command in Iraq. I you know I'm not gonNA say. Trump is the genius mastermind behind this. I think it would be more something saying that. The whole many himself came up with but to me and every Iranian you would speak to and I know many of them they always say the same. I think the company and Americans are all playing together. It's one big game and they know it but this guy who they got rid of I think he may have been a real problem. It may actually change things for the better. A deal could be possibly in the future. I certainly don't think we're going to see anyone. I don't we're not gonNA see retaliation we already had a sorry ass. Blame fake news bullcrap. They hacked act one of the United States government websites. Did you see this. Yeah of some some division. I've never heard of so. There's a question that has never been asked opening ever crops up. I can't find the answer to it. And it seems somewhat important is to prejudge this of the whole thing thing which is which is to keep talking about the American contractor. Who was this guy? It's a good question question. was he a CIA guy. Well you know this guy. was He some bonehead from Bechtel. who was before his name? Yeah we don't know that at least I haven't found a but thirty percent of all activity is done by contractors. This is why these a holes love war is because its commercial official business. y'All there's big money has been completely outsourced so before we continue. Let me just give you a few choice. Sound bits here of Who People think will get killed in retaliation or who? The possible targets could be. Oh Yeah we're going to turn this into a really big super shit show at previous. US presidents when given the opportunity to kill him passed on it because they were fearful of what it would unleash. So what could the consequences beat this time. Well this is the problem or we don't know what you're absolutely right Previous administrations certainly thought about may have had opportunities -tunities as they characterize that they passed on his opportunities because they didn't know how Iran would response and it's dangerous business for states to start killing off off each other's highest level leaders We probably wouldn't like it if the Iranians killed off someone like a Mike Pompeo more or less cost money in their system okay. There's one vote for Mike. Pompeo let's go to Senator Tom Udall and I think what the president has done here. You're killing this major general. That is part of the defense establishment in Iran. Iran is the same thing if they had attacked us and and assassinated our Secretary of defense foreign trip someplace. I this is getting us into a very bad road and putting on a very bad path secretary defense. Of course. There's no one knows esperer so it wouldn't be wouldn't even make the second page of the newspaper Let's talk to the US. NATO admiral James stavridis this potentially raising the stakes for American military planners not to military. How would you expect the Iranians would fare against the US? They would fare badly cannot match us in conventional forces but they are masters of asymmetric warfare. The Iranians may turn around and and attempt the same kind of activity against the US ambassador to say this was a proportional operation. I got news for you. Nothing's GonNa the happened. No retaliation this is a stupid show. And it's you know what this was even to some degree predicted addicted.

More difficult to grow in an environment that requires her to constantly adapt to new jobs in you opportunities, such it has strong economic impact in Pakistan. The estimated impact is on two to three percent of GDP. We're losing a huge potential on productivity for the country. I've come to a small village in our russillo away from the hospital just over a dozen small houses here each made up of a single room surrounded by scrubland when Imran Khan was elected prime minister last year. He promised at tackling stunted growth would be one of his priorities spending on healthcare is increasing. But there's no single solution villages like this needs to be lifted out of poverty families can afford to buy the food they need. They're also these improvements to sanitation. There's not one toilet in the whole village or the issues the lack of awareness about nutrition and family planning.

That was our correspondent the Kamani reporting from Pakistan. You're listening to NewsHour from the BBC on Russia exile now stories on Iran, often focus on the president Hassan. Ruhani the foreign minister Javad Zarif or the supreme leader Ayatollah Khomeini on man. You may be less familiar with is an Iranian Major General in the revolutionary guard. Call and the commander of its coulds force, which is a division primarily responsible for extra territorial military and clandestine operations his name is Qassem Suleimani. He's fated in Iran and vilified in senior political and military circles in the west, he's a master strategist completely central to Iran's policy outside the country with close ties to Hezbollah in a moment. We'll hear about his critical role in many countries in the region. Let's I hear this report from Jane Corbin, which indicates the extent to which possum Salamis fingerprints are over every conflict from the war in. Iraq in two thousand and three to the battle against the Islamic state group as commander of the could force of the Iranian revolution. Regard for more than twenty years. Kasim Suleimani is a hero to some a villain to others. General David portraying led the US surge in Iraq following the western coalitions invasion to topple Saddam Hussein. We saw custom Sola Mani as a very capable charismatic skilled, professionally competent diabolically evil human being Kasim Sulejmani was behind the training and arming of Iraqi Shia militias who fought the British in southern Iraq. His could force supplied and smuggled in sophisticated Iranian technology to make explosively formed projectiles. So e f which had devastating effects general. Jonathan Shaw was the British commander there when the attacks reached their peak in two thousand and seven it was the most intense period of violence since. The invasion. We had forty one people killed in my time there and numerous people injured and one of the most significant instance for me was when a mine blew warrior off the road and killed four people in it. And you could just feel the sort of the the will to fight in Iraq ebbing away in the British nation. This was very calculated by Iran by the revolutionary guard by presumably customs Lemani. Yes, I think it was intimidation campaign. I mean, it wasn't all out war. But it was just keeping the heat on a saying you better get out, you know, in two thousand fifteen the tables were turned when the Islamic state's swept across northern Iraq seizing territory and weapons from the Iraqi army while the west was slow to react Qassem Suleimani, recognizing the threat from these Sunni extremists to Shia Iran quickly provided weapons to the Kurds the western coalitions allies without Salamis intervention. Some believes the tide could not have been turned. Against the Islamic state. Here's former US commander special operations general Stanley mcchrystal ISIS, which was this negative evil thing. Soleimani nail gets the role of being the white Knight against it. Now to a certain degree comes out like an American ally. But that was strange bedfellows for pretty narrow period. Although Suleimani and the Americans were effectively on the same side battling the Islamic state. The US would not authorize airstrikes in support of the Iraqi Shia militias who had killed so many coalition troops in Iraq. Again, under Suleiman is direction on the battlefield. These militias were a key factor in winning the war against the Islamic state. Western sources believe that Selemani has a grand strategic plan to build a land corridor from Tehran across Iraq and Syria to Lebanon and the shores of the Mediterranean, the so-called Shia crescent to bring in weapons and encircle Israel Iran's. Enemy Salani is using could force bases in Syria where they have been shoring up the Assad regime to probe Israel's defenses across the Golan Heights. Danny Tom is a former head of the Mossad. Israel's intelligence service would Israel kill Qassem Suleimani, if Israel could I can only say every terrorist in by the way, he's a terrorist is on the list of organizations, so every terrorist should remember very vividly that you might be a target, and there is no immunity to terrorists that was Danny Yatom ending that report from Jane Corbin, well, general Qasim Silliman money is to say, the least an elusive figure. He's never given an interview to any foreign media and even on Iranian television. He's only seen making appearances mocking, anniversaries and religious ceremonies. But Marco Carnell Las who was Italy's ambassador to Iraq was often. A point of contact between general Salamis men the Iraqis and the Americans I asked him if it's legitimate to regard Qassams Sulaimaniyah as a master strategist praised at home and good at operating foreign policy abroad. He's definitely a master strategist from Deora Raynham point of view, and from what Iran wants to achieve in the region. So the evidence head on the ground Turkey, too, many people who have been dealing with them is that definitely the man is behind the lot of things, but the is not a one man show. The man is implemented some orders and directives that reflect the Iranian foreign policy. Objectives is not only it's a system. And so he noted that one the stand what he does we have to understand the system widely system is operating in this way. How would you assess then the place that he occupies in the perspective of the Iranian people festival. Well, Iran is a complex country that has been exposed immediately after the revolution to along war. The Iranian perception in the region is that Iran is under attack is not the Iraqis are talking, but he's under dot and this perceptual could be right. I could be wrong. We can discuss it. But this is their perception. So what Qasim Sulaiman is doing in the ways doing and we can discuss if they're tool Sarah legitimate or not, but some believe that are not very legitimate. But what is doing is assault of forward defence by Iranian day. Do not warm to find their country anymore in this situation where defined in one thousand nine hundred eighty one day where Dr by Saddam Hussein Iraq. Right. So I mean, would you in the context of what you said about him, not acting alone? And there is a defensive perception that Iran is operating from as opposed to an aggressive one, which is the way in which the west and America in particular sees Iran as behaving is he a powerful figure, even though he isn't clearly acting alone. Yes, definitely is a powerful figure. Definitely these because this is the feedback. I got on the ground, even when for example in two thousand seventeen could this done change, the perspective and coca was? Conquer again, by the Iraqi central government. Everything was mustered minded by customs Sulejmani behind the scenes, but there's also another Helen we have to keep in mind that it is not only a military projection is a cultural drive that is bringing Iran to do certain things in doing in the region, and he's a cultural and the Regis at the same time against what they perceive be oppression injustice in the region and outlined forest the decisive the areas in which he plays a decisive role. Well, he has been playing a decisive role in Afghanistan in Iraq in Syria and Lebanon. I didn't say that these role has been so far such important given the relevance of Yemen four Iran is less than the other countries. I just mentioned is just a way to drive a wedge in the Saudi Arabia for obvious reasons because the two country opposite position, and he is also very significant in Iran. To what extent is that problematic? Given how close Iraq or at least the way in which the United States sees Iraq or is fashioning Iraq to be an ally in the region. Well, let me put him in a typically talion way, we have two gentlemen that are courting a beautiful lady. And this is what Iraq at the moment. The american. They have their interest in Iraq and invested a lot. They don't want to mess meant to go badly. But I mean, I believe they will never match the interest and the investment that the Iran has been doing in Iraq in the last decades, but centralize the two countries that have long boarder and of the most important religious shrine for Iranian. She is ARIN Iraq and every year there are about twelve million people crossing the border between Iran and Iraq to make their pilgrimage in these all enshrine creating bonds between people between families that is quite quite difficult to. Effect from the west the former US general Stanley mcchrystal wrote a piece in which he was full of praise for customs to the money's strategic mind. But he also called him dangerous. Would you agree with that assessment? Of course is dangerous from the American perspective it's dangerous because certain American initiative in the regions at been prevented by customs Souleymane role. So basically is an enemy, and I have to say that either Sally mcchrystal either general portrayals, we doubt knowing him. Very well, they showed the respect that the men deserve irrespective of what could be the moral judgment about what he has done. So it's about generals thinking about other generals. Yeah. In a way, they gave him the sort of the recognition that from a pure, Billy Tari point of view, the men deserved.
