That's 87 year old move partial Baban remembering her old friend, Dr Nazir al Dulaymi. They worked together in the formation of one of Iraq's early women's organizations Back in the 19 fifties. Laith al Dulaymi, doctor Nazir's nephew. Has equally fond memories of his favorite aunt. When we're young to my sisters feel they stole them actually always respect the culture off the place where you are and never insulted, but always have an opinion and expressive, expressing her opinion seems to have been second nature to nausea who grew up in a middle class household in Baghdad. Which was always full of books and political discussions.

"Do what rachel nine tells you to do. I clicked on the link and learned that the pandemic had wrecked the photo house business. So i gave an amount that earned me in return a twenty centimeter by centimeter print of any of the hundreds of thousands of negatives almost a million they say in the house collection a month later after the whole thing completely slipped my mind i got an email from my at photo house saying that the campaign had vested they set out to collect three hundred thousand and had in fact gotten a lot more so i can pick up whichever photograph i wanted them to print. Which for me was a complicated thing. I already have a picture from the photo house. It's of our building. Workers matori's eight just after it was built in nineteen thirty six. You can see our apartment and right in front is a guy wrangling to pack mules. It was birthday present from close friends and it hangs framed in a focal spot where you can see it when you just walk into the apartment and from the living room and kitchen and from the hall from the bedrooms like almost all the pictures in the collection it was taken by the man who started the photo house rudy visa stein. Who was a newspaper photographer. In prague and vienna before he came to tel aviv and nineteen thirty six and set up shop on allenby with his dancer wife miriam arnstein shop brought in came from studio portraits but for almost sixty years visa and arnstein traveled all over the city and all over the country taking pictures in nineteen forty eight been going acities seen to document the signing of the declaration of independence and the result was a gorgeous series of warm photographs. That reasoning said later was missing one. After ben gurion read aloud the declaration of independence the hundreds of people in city hall and the thousands and thousands who thronged rothschild boulevard crowding the roofs in perching on the branches of trees outside city hall saying hatikva. The first time the song was sung as the anthem of a sovereign state visit stein new. That he should take a picture of people in a minute old state united in song but his eyes were blurred by tears and he lowered his camera and sang along with everyone else. I spent two nights scrolling through picture after picture of places i know and mostly love but pictures of them younger than i'd ever seen them an experience like going through your parents albums when they were young in. The pictures were lots of charismatic. People in places shulamit aloni so young and the poet bialik or for that matter the mugabe theater before burned down blazing lights people ascending the stairs in finery but what movie most were smaller places. These teen took a picture of the little new restaurant near the old central bus station. It was run by the he said route. Union for working stiffs and you could get there and instant coffee and a slice of yellow cheese on a soft roll slathered with butter for a couple of lear. Wrote and there was a paper on the counter for you to read but it was always davar the socialist paper of the union and susan and i went there once maybe at seven in the morning on our way from terada haifa where we're freeing our lifts the stuff that we sent by ship shelves in books and stereos. When we first moved to israel a few years later the to restaurant was gone because the he said route found itself in too much. Debt to subsidize ness cafe and butter cheese and free copies of davar for proletarians and also for kids like us on our way from here to there in love with each other and also in love. Oddly with a pass that we had never known for two nights. I spent hours looking at old pictures of that past that i called the mind but really that i'd never known. Finally i had to decide and i'm not good at making decisions. The problem was every picture seemed arbitrary. Why this one. Not that one. So i tried to find the least arbitrary picture that i could and i settled on the earliest one which is also maybe the most famous one but it had its own complications. The picture negative number are six. Three four eight is called the division of the plots. it was taken on april eleventh. Nineteen thousand nine and it shows a clash of people on the dunes of karam jabali. Just north of audio taking part in a lottery to choose. Who got which of sixty six tracts of land in a who's out by it which would be a new neighborhood. What in time would become the city of tel aviv. Most think of the lottery as the founding of tel aviv the founding event though some activists say that since they're already was a settlement of jews from yemen in my this was actually just the founding of ashkenazi tel aviv. What's for sure. The picture is definitely ashkenazi. In that in the sand the men wear suits and hats and the women wear long dresses. Covered in long overcoats. Barbara man who. I talked about earlier in her beautiful book about tel-aviv. A place in history. That i mentioned earlier writes that it wasn't just the yemeni jews that the picture leaves out of the frame quote. There is no sign of the city of your foe to the immediate south or of nevada. Shallow or of the templar settlements rona or the extensive arab orchards. Just to the east in the picture. The city is formed ex nihilo and quote just the way it was framed was myth making another complication of the picture was that it was not taken by rudy teen. Who was not even born until eight months after the lottery. It was taken by a photographer. Named abraham suskind who had its own salaam on the In yeah and then opened the first sulaimaniyah in tel aviv which he then advertised in front page ads. Local paper that in bold letters in their entirety said quote remember. The first sulaimaniyah in tel aviv is the sulaimaniya of so skin. Hertzel street twenty four and quote when visa up shop. He was so since competitor but he loves so skains work and he loved the man and he saw so skin his mentor and in time also as a subject of a series of portrait photographs that are hunting and beautiful in the nineteen fifties. When the time came for skin to retire. He pressed visa stein to buy his archive of negatives and though the price wasn't high sheen couldn't afford it. Some of so skains negatives did make it to these machines collection though including the most historic of all the most historic one being the division of the plots sill. I worried that there might be some disrespect. Unintended for sure. And not at all what i felt for rudy visa stein to spend hours admiring his genius only choose a negative made by his mentor before he was even born. Still late late late on the second night of my deliberation. That was the negative that i chose on monday. I back over to the photo house. Storefront on husky street. A few blocks from the allenby address of visa teens. First studio and a collaborator away from so skins place at hertzel twenty four. Maybe a commodore and a half from where the sixty six families stood in the sand in ties and hats and picked from a bag the location of their new homes in the new neighborhood in a new city. When i asked my told me how these interesting had gotten so skains negative and then she handed me my photo made from that seem negative. It's been our kitchen table. Ever since waiting for darcy are frame guy who is sick to come back to work. And i've been staring at it for a few days. Now thinking about the people maybe especially about the dog in the picture and thinking about what a thing it is. Maybe a little like root homophobia to have passed that used to be someone else's past but that somehow over long years became mine too and that brings us to the end of our show. Thanks to meet ashkenazi genus researcher conciliatory and scholar. Not in residents. Thanks to shell them are stay manager without whom there would be. None of this bounty. Thanks to She believed my favorite band from cuba. Together give us a music at the start in the end of our show. Thank you. Miriam thank you natalie. Thank you don.

And give us a five star review. Maybe when the begins with this one thing about the promise. Podcast is for some reason. You pretty much never get through a whole episode without a mention of concentration camp. Thought that finished anywhere you want but before you do that. Remember that earlier. This week on november sixteenth. We celebrated international day for tolerance so stipulated in nineteen ninety-seven by the united nations general assembly. In resolution. ace slash fifty-one slash. Six one nine slash addendum. To where after many prefatory statements beginning whereas as and recalling and bearing in mind and reconfirming the assembly quote invites member states to observe the international day for tolerance annually on sixteen november with appropriate activities directed both towards educational establishments and the wider public and quote. Which is about as stirring as bureaucratic language ever gets. November sixteenth was chosen because it is the birth date of mahatma gandhi. And i swear this year is international. Day of tolerance may have been my best ever each year. It seems like the list of people and peoples tolerate just gets longer and longer as for instance this year when i added to the people who say you working hard or hardly working deep down. They're good eggs also the irish anyway. I love tolerating and when november sixteenth came around that just like that it would be gone like one of those dumb ass around god people who come into the tel aviv to go to the beach and these cigarette butts in the sand drives me crazy not to return for another year. Not so the promise. Podcasts we will be back for you next week and every week reminding you that really there are some things up with which you should not put on. This promise podcast..

Is An insult to the memory of six hundred thousand people who've been slaughtered in Syria and elsewhere, and this is this is a earthquake cataclysmic. As the as the landscape broke we saw the emergence of of I would say, four elements I'm saying four and not six the old socialist nationalist. Nassir is the Baathist with finished Saddam and on the gallows the Nassir are marginal force in Egypt today. Show Alaska a relic of the bath stage that he was now fighting for the survival of his clan is family. Hanging on singer. Yes but not for. The sake of the Baathist ideology any more it's it's and these become an adjunct of the Iranian camp to some extent. So which comes from a very different ideological. And so they are finished their the past. The liberals never made it to be future unfortunately. Tunisia. Little Bit. Yes, absolutely, you're right as the exception where they are in Hanis was the Conservatives against this list and Tunisia. Was the first Tunisia remains the exception that proves the rule everywhere else it's either the Islamists in Banville variation on another all the forces of stability conservative forces of stability which have formed an alliance against the revolutionary. So. Of course, you have the daish types, the ISIL. I is a misnomer because when they say sham. SHAM SHAM IS NOT SERIOUS SASHA MS at ten forty dollar Levant including Israel and Jordan balanced view. Wish. Lebanon. So, Isis became a common. MISNOMER. But the most intelligence services say Isis case they to sign. Be. And so I would say I S it's not estate and other Al Qaeda offshoot that's a camp, but there are now so badly beaten that they're not real contenders anymore for the future of the region so we're down to three inshallah in shown So we have three. And these three the. Iranian camp. And that's that's a camp. It's a dangerous camp they have of course core in Tehran he lost. The main. Organizer. Qasim Sulaimaniya to an American strike, but basically, they're still there. They have their proxies in Lebanon has. The. Militia the Popular Mobilization Forces Hush Albie militias in Iraq. Of Hussey. Uprising in. Yemen very much part of the Iranian, bid for. Dominance. And so and of course, they have agents and sleeper cells. Around the world and the relationship influence in North Africa at all and those Arab. They tried to penetrate Libya, did not do very well the used to have an interest in Sudan but look Saddam is gone now they I sold out to the Saudis and now they are. Talking with Israel they fire the spokesman of Default Ministry for speaking to any but but. No Iran. Did Not do well in North Africa but elsewhere they have Their influence over their relationship was village waylon and so on. Fishing in also in murky waters forever. So Iran is a challenge a major challenge. The other challenging element nowadays is the Muslim Brotherhood camp, which is supported by two significant regional players namely, Turkey and cut are working in tandem. The. Took led by Doan, but supported the from cutouts pockets You have the Hamas you have the GNA government in Tripoli. And you have the Muslim Brotherhood elements under the surface in various places backed and supported abide the Turks. Themselves also into Yemen. The rumors about two new relationship that trying to build with among they have a military presence in naval presence in Somalia and sold. The Turks are reviving a landscape of ambitions, which is neo Ottoman in nature. and. Confused. It confuses me always of course, is that we have relations with Turkey? Yes. Israel. Relationship. We've been embassy their. Embassy in Tokyo. From way back. Military. Famous. we had an alliance the famous. Trident Alliance alliance of the periphery in the fifties been gory on struck. A relationship with Turkey Iran which was under the Shah and the monarchy in the COPA. All of we share the fear of NASA racism and Panera based poor, pro-soviet Pam Arabism, and so that's history but that took he's gone. Back even though we still travel there Israeli travel there freely. Yes and. Jews. Now. Avoid. This paradise of. All included hotels in southern Turkey. Shifted to Greece. Israeli Arabs still travel quite often to to Turkey and feel comfortable. But it's interesting. One never touched the canonic dimension of the relationship and by degraded the. The level of diplomatic representation. Ambassador eight hundred was forced out and I was never invited to return before that. In two thousand ten, we had to my Mama crisis we would. Get and then we apologize we brought back the embassies to a higher level, but they never cut off relations all together and he never touched economic. They mentioned billions of dollars in trade. Hi, FIS the port of Trade for Turkey with Jordan and points east. And that's not a secret It's it's not. We don't run around telling everyone, but we arrange with the Turks and the Jordanians, their trucks to come of the Ro ro ships in Haifa drive to Jordan and further south because obviously you can no longer drive through Syria there's not enough Syria left and it is a hostile territory. To unstable and. Lebanon doesn't get you anywhere you. After the game through Syria all through. Israel. So I do so high phased airport and moreover the arcade report of NATO and. And there's a limit to how far they want to go and in addition to all of this. The occupant made its political base. Through its. Economic, prosperity bid for economic prosperity. So. There's a limit to how far they want to go turkeys not wrong. Turkeys embedded in international economic structure. Taste, a prosperous country until has been re now they're lear is in full and serious issue covered dishes etcetera, but at the end of the day. Turkey is strategically speaking. A dangerous player. Now, they have a bid for hegemony in the eastern Mediterranean. It has to do with the maps of the easy. They draw a map that gives them a border was Libya, which bottles up Israel Cyprus. and. They hate all three of us. Equally. And the occupied part of Cyprus and they okay. Knock patient of northern Cyprus. so-called Turkish Republic of Nova Cyprus which is recognized by only one country named it. But in the Now, what happened is the six of August. Egypt and Greece signed a counter map and agreement that draws the map. In a way that takes into account the island. Exclusive Economic Zones of Crete and copper types and rugs in it. So in other words they get, it gives Egypt and Greece a common border so we can actually drive. For, the future pipeline or or power line from our energy fields from power station is Cyprus or whatever we decide to to. Greece and points. West, in Europe. Without having to ask permission of His palace anchor. So. This is a clash now interesting here's the point. The United. Arab Emirates is Egypt's strategic sponsor.

"The seemed to be more questions. Raise the answers given so far president. Trump's decision to kill general Qassem solely money. The evidence offered by the White House of an imminent threat has not been forthcoming coming. The story has been shifting was silly money targeting the US embassy in Baghdad was he targeting four American embassies in the region. What happened to those plans? Plus now one hundred and seventy six people have died in what some have called collateral damage from the Sulaimaniya killing so was the president's decision. The right one joining joining me now rule mark director former Middle Eastern specialist of the now senior fellow at the foundation for the Defense of Democracies and treat a Varsity the executive vice. The president at the Quincy Institute for Responsible State Graft and the author of losing an enemy Obama Iran and the triumph of diplomacy rule Let me ask you. I think you have come out publicly in the past actually in favor of specifically killing got some money. Do you think this was done. Aw strategically and in the right way because I know that in general presumably you actually approve of the the killing. Yeah I think it was the correct thing to do. We should have done it years ago. I mean that man is responsible for the deaths of lots of Americans. General portrays things that figure is up around six hundred. I suspect expected low I think if you kill Americans your life is forfeit. United States may choose the time and place to exact that but That man is spread sectarian bloodshed throughout the Middle East. He's tried to radicalized Shiite communities he sported journey Sunni jihadists. He's been quite ecumenical. Accu medical and his tastes was quite accurate on this tastes. The spread May and to hurt the United States. So it's high time we stop turning achieve and take him out tree divorcee would you. What what's your reaction? Well I think the American public clearly Do not believe that this has made them safe the latest polls show that only twenty five percent. Believe that this has made more safe fifty two percents that has not fifty five or fifty six percent disapprove of of how trump has handled this. I think their instincts right because their instincts are that this will not only make America less safe. It will also entangle America more in the Middle East at a moment when the American public wants to have the troops come home. They don't see a strategic reason utility to continue these analysts wars and trump has done here is actually GonNa make much more more difficult for the United States to be able to leave the region instead. It's going to get more entangled in these endless wars already going on and now he's risking to start a third one so based on that. I think it's really difficult to see that. This is serving US national interest at this moment and it has not made America more safe Rule Romy asked you to respond to treater Parsa recent essay or I can't recall exactly where it was was a very interesting point he said is it time for us to to to Acknowledged that the United States is involvement in the Middle East has caused more instability tension and war than solving a regional tensions instability and war If you look at it on the face of it American involvement in the Middle East Gulf War One Gulf War to the various interventions. It does it. Seemed like it certainly has not quite and things down. Let me put it that way. Well I mean I again. I think the primary force driving arriving The sectarian bloodshed in the region has been the Islamic republic. It hasn't been the United States. I suppose you could have fond and memories of Saddam Hussein in the hundreds of thousands of people that he slaughtered. But I don't I think the United States if you can fault the United States as for anything it it does. It doesn't always want to stay the course and I don't think we're going to run from the Middle East. I think we should have learned that after nine eleven eleven And I think it's high time we realized that the primary driver of instability is Is Ron I mean I think it is amusing in important to note that they ask you mark. Let me ask you mark just one second is it. Iran hasn't been Sunni jihadists. I just I mean nine. Eleven was not perpetrated by run but by Saudi Arabian Egyptian Sunni fundamentalists who are actually enemies of Iran. Well I mean Customs Sulamani Lemani in In in particular was operationally responsible for creating Shiite militias in the model of Lebanese Hill is Bola they have somewhere somewhere. Upwards of fifty thousand of these folks now spread out through the Middle East He encouraged sectarianism radicalization of Shiite communities. They also supported Suny Jihadists. My God I mean. The Revolutionary Guard Corps was sending weaponry to Sunni jihadists in Iraq and they were sitting sitting rapid or Suny Jihadists Afghantistan. The Taliban was receiving weaponry. Notion that Zuni Jihadist. Let me I. Oh I'm sorry we have. We have a little bit of time and I just want to give the last word. Well look it's not about whether Iran also is Destabilizing realizing actor or the idea that only one actor could be stabilizing. Unfortunately you have several these stabilizing actors in the region. The question we have to ask ourselves has over militarized militarized. American dominance of the Middle East made America safer and made the Middle East more stable. The answer to that question I think is quite clear it has not worked and we should be pursuing other paths instead of does doubling down on something that has been devastating to the Middle East regardless of what the Iranians are doing. And they're doing a lot about how things as well and also made America less safe if we're actually going to be pursuing. US national interest. We should not organize it around the principle that the most important thing for the United States is revenge against Iran that is not a policy or an orientation that will make America better off. This is a very important debate and we will return to tweeted. I'm sorry we're out of time but thank you both very much next on. GPS We're going to switch subjects. There is a lot of hand wringing in America about the power the big a big technology companies wheeled over US our brains our lives Americans ought to look to the east to see what may be a rather frightening future the new trend coming out of east when we come back now for what in the world's segment Elizabeth Warren wants to break them up. The FTC wants to hold them accountable. A growing chorus accuses them of damaging democracy. America's because in the midst of an unprecedented furor over the unchecked power of its tech companies. But the problems in America actually be overshadowed overseas. He's take for example the leading Chinese social media and messaging APP. We check a platform with more than one billion users. It's popular beyond beyond China's borders with the Chinese diaspora and it is a breeding ground for fake news. That has proven uniquely difficult to monitor look at Australia. As the Australian Broadcasting Company reported in the run-up to elections in May we chat saw flurry of messages of dubious origins linking the Labor Party to a massive influx of refugees. One Post even claimed that Labor if elected would give refugees luxury apartments with views of the water upon arrival arrival and in the US researchers have linked we chat and the fake news and half food spread and group chats there to the falling support among Chinese Americans for for affirmative action as writes in the New Yorker we chat lends itself to misinformation. Because as with what's up it's hard to track down the origins of many posts which are forwarded from group to group taking on a life of their own. It's also easy to register. so-called official account and boasts public content and some of these accounts are run by bloggers and citizen journalists as a report by the Center for Digital Journalism notes. Those accounts can be as influential as mainstream stream media and many are nakedly. Partisan that's all about from the privacy concerns particularly inside China where we chat serves as a payments messaging suggest food ordering and ride hailing all at once that allows its parents company. Ten cents to collect a dizzying amount of data from uses and data is of course where the money is this. Monitoring of data is at the heart of what the social psychologists Shoshana Zubov 'cause surveillance capitalism capitalism capitalism based on watching your every move in China as quartz notes. The government could easily request and access data from tech companies so surveillance capitalism totalism mixes seamlessly with surveillance government and as the New York Times has reported the government has been deploying facial recognition software and its vast vast security apparatus to profile and control the WHITACRE's a Muslim ethnic minority in various parts of the country. The Times reports security cameras cameras outfitted with the software scan. Thousands of faces looking for ethnic police have put together face image databases from criminal criminal and other records and they use these systems to track Weigo's movements. It's an exercise in mass surveillance and social control that is breathtaking taking but the dangerous combination of artificial intelligence and policing is not limited to authoritarian regimes. Look at India. The world's largest democracy which is planning one of the world's largest facial recognition systems to aid police departments across the country authorities would be able to automatically cross-check US check images from security cameras with a database of known criminals missing children and passport photos data. Privacy activists in India have revolted halted. They worry that the system could be used for social policing and would trample on individual rights and privacy rights they feared would be linked to India's massive biometric database known as odd heart which holds the personal details of one point two billion people. The government has denied that it plans to link to the new system and has sought to de the emphasize the systems role in fighting crime but worries remain especially since the Indian government is increasingly using technology or the access to it as has a level of social control by shutting down the Internet in response to political unrest in several states this week the Indian Supreme Court declared the indefinite Senate Internet shutdown in Kashmir is illegal as is often happening these days. Hot New trends now come from the emerging markets including ones that are deeply blue troubling next on GPS weeks like these bring a big philosophical questions about the use of Western power luckily enough. I have a great philosopher. Who thinks about just those questions joining me next back in a moment with Bernard only libby? Don't forget if you miss a show. Go to CNN dot com slash read for linked to my I tunes podcast. The I want to get out of the Middle East. That was president trump in October explaining his decision to withdraw troops from northeastern Syria. The president has long opposed.

I'm in Iran watcher. I'm in Iraq watcher. I'M A serial watcher. I'm an Kanazawa watcher. And for the people on the ground they don't hate America they don't hate Donald Trump. In fact there's a lot of training hashtags right now from Iran on twitter. Thank you trump. We thank you. Thank you for her Sulejmani. Thank you go. Look for yourselves and people in Iran are happy and they're giving out in the Middle East. It's cultural practice when something wonderful happens when there's a marriage when there's a celebration you give out cookies. You make cakes and you should see the videos. Does that are coming out. People are baking cakes. People are giving out cookies and public in the streets. Because they're happy. I mean I don't know do we. Do we live in a closed society that we don't know that most people in the Middle East are not free specifically in Iran Islamic state. There's no freedom of religion. There's no freedom of speech there's no freedom of peaceful you know protests and for anyone who disagrees with the regime. They're arrested there jail tortured end. Yeah there's a lot of video coming out right now about you. Know the the funeral of Awesome Sulaimaniya. It's so much propaganda you guys. The regime has been saying death to America for forty years. They forced us in school to say death to America. I was seven in years old. I didn't know what I was singing. And the people that are like saying that right now they're called the best. CG They're like they're getting paid. They're the ones they get paid to kill people on the street. So yeah they're going to say death to America but that's not the people the majority of the people in the Middle East. Don't hate America. They don't hate Donald Trump and I'm probably knows a lot a lot of friends for saying this but thank you Mr Trump for making a very hard decision and for having the moral courage to do something that probably a lot of world leaders in my experience with Iranians or as they as they prefer to be called Persians Certainly in Los Angeles when I lived there I yeah I knew a number of them but also Lexus wife She's Iranian. They go back and forth to Tehran a lot And she she she tells me what's going on and it's the same message you know it's like and they also always feel that America and the regime are somehow in cahoots route and are always working on schemes together. Now that's just the population who feels that way but then you know there's always something behind it there's is always something behind these especially in the Middle East misery Middle Easterners in general all the different cultures and countries. They're very gossipy and they yes they are and they tend to come up with these sorts of analysis to not dissimilar to ours in many cases and a lot of it is right on the money honey because it gets verified that because there are so open about discussing this stuff behind. Everyone's back so so what would be next on. I mean there are other other evidences that we are working with them. Oh lots of it. Oh by the way. BBC Now reporting BBC reporting that CBS news is reporting that US televisions agents intelligence says a satellite detected infrared blips of two missile launches followed by another blip of explosion therefore saying saying that Iran mistakenly shot down the Ukrainian plane. There goes the earthquake machine theory. Well it doesn't explain the earthquakes Earthquakes happen to blitz with ABC's so when into Sag zig enter who knows who decided that there is a there was a blip of showing a missile to blips in hitting two blips Bang Bang followed title by another blip. I love these these technical explanations. Little Blip Glitch. Yeah exactly so if you look at the cycles if you look at the cycle of Iran were about due for a for a regime change for saying why why would they do for rebels ation. Why would they Mistakenly shoot down this thing. What planes do they think we're flying around? You had not a town. That were what they think was an American jet. What were they thinking? It was a mistake. Jake this is the reporting. It was a mistake. oops you know sometimes. Things are very unfortunate bad day record as we say in you think that was true quote unquote mistake. There was somebody on that plane that they had to Yeah I'd ideal. I did get the passenger manifest when I saw every name but I do nothing I would recognize. I have no idea. You're a running names now but that that is obviously something that we would look at a day records what I see so so far but you say they're due for Russia's Asian I I don't think so we're not going to rebel is Iran at all eventually we have to know maybe oilfields fields. But you cannot rub allies. No no I just don't see that happening. They could. They realized everything else. Wise Ron Iran. Getting getting ask. Iran has been our buddy in the past. They've done a lots of Libya behave. It's it's bad actors that makes these decisions so hopefully we're not going to rub is Iran. What I would be hoping for is another October surprise hostage situation? This is the year to do it. That's what I'd be looking at. A cycle will actually. This is not a year to year to do it would be In twenty twenty four. Because because they when they did it and I thought Oh no you're right you're right because it was Carter's first go round. They had the it rid of him and averted. This would be an attempt to get rid of. People wouldn't vote for male but they can't because he's such a loose cannon. Nobody knows what he'd do. And it's not like Carter. They knew is going to win out but we all know that you know. The deal was made to intentionally delayed the release the hostages so it would benefit Reagan. Yes these are. The types of these are the level of deals that can be done with Iran. And I'm sure that that could come in handy depending on what happens with or something of that ilk gets going. We can talk about that in a minute. But let's I have one more clip about trump and his little chat and the only reason I wanNA play because I haven't a deputy F- attached to it would this is at seven second clip trump talk on WTI military spending ending. The American military has been completely rebuilt under my administration at a cost of two point. Five trillion dollars. Yeah I called that number Knbr as well and I actually expected some outrage. I didn't read any outrage about that. None which is like how much who's who's giving them meet at me can't even think for themselves on any of these things that can't ridicule him for his tolerance zing and they can't talk about this this number which is what is he talking about about. He's been in office two years. Put in seven hundred billion dollars each year for the military Which is one point? I mean if you add the two together which is not rebuilding. That's just maintaining According to him that's one point four trillion. So how's he gets huge number. I don't maybe that's the the the two trillion that Rumsfeld couldn't account for I don't know do we still have that classroom Rumsfeld's pockets Rumsfeld. We couldn't find that was wasn't that the day before Nine eleven that he said that yes. This is Wait a minute. How much did trump say? That's very interesting. How point four trillion? I threw plenty and Seven seconds for peace groups right. That's the wrong one we go. The American military has been completely rebuilt under my administration. The cost of two point five trillion dollars point five. Now let's listen to Donald Rumsfeld just before nine eleven two thousand one the day before nine one one secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared war not on foreign terrorists adversaries closer to home. It's the Pentagon bureaucracy. He said money wasted by the military poses. A serious threat. In fact it could be said that it's a matter of life and death. Rumsfeld promised Change Enj but the next day the world change in the rush to fund the war on terrorism. The war on waste seems to have been forgotten. Komo three budget calls for more than forty eight billion dollars in new defense spending more money for the Pentagon when its own auditors admit the military not cannot account for twenty five percent of what it already spends according to some estimates we cannot track two point three trillion dollars in transactions. Close enough pretty close. Two point three two point five. Who knows it's all a big rip off once we get a little rip off in have you so you can support the military but you? You don't have to support just squandering money. And what did he go towards. I mean I I saw the National Defense Authorization Act I I think they went to face force. That's where the money went. By the way there are two producers of this program. The no agenda show. Why have confirmed are now in space force? Oh really yeah I think I heard about one of them. One of them's pretty high up in the launch area and another one is in the bowels That's that's just the ones I know but space forces the real deal man. It's the real deal so yeah two point. Five true in the seems like a lot out of money. I I know that what we appropriate seven hundred fifty billion dollars seven hundred plus yeah So where to come from. There's there's there's money money two point five trillion come from Reich's. CIA's money took that money back from him by the way very interesting ever. Since you had the guy on from the Quincy Institute. Yeah everybody showing up everywhere. There's articles every me just opinion. The Quincy Institute the Hypersonic Missiles Are Game Changing. This is a maybe maybe these guys are the new war the War Power College. Whatever people behind it right Let me wait. Let me guess. I guess you won't get the correctly. Sora is one of them I actually I did see this. I collect glit- brothers. Oh yes I did. See this Soros and coke brothers. Yeah to fine war outfits right there. Wow All winding the quincy institute so whenever you see someone from the Quincy Institute. Do you know where it's coming from where they're like that one please and then just a reminder John Kerry's daughter is married to the son of one of I think the Finance Minister.

"sulaimaniya" Discussed on The Chuck ToddCast: Meet the Press
"Afternoon from Washington. I'm Chuck Todd and this is the Chuck Todd Cast. We've been talking a lot about the presidential race for months now so later in this podcast room talk about a bunch of other political races. That's right the Senate Senate Matt Leans read this year. There's some competitive states that could cause the map to flip it's fascinating there's a lot of right now. It's sixty seven races that are truly in play. It could get up to a dozen. All depends in in many ways what happens with the Democratic presidential race. Oh we're GONNA have a lot of fun. Doing good. Old fashioned should political junkies stuff on Senate races. That's later J. B. Purse for the Democrats Brad Todd for the Republicans and it is if you're junkie you're gonNA love it but first Washington we are dominated here by the what I call. The three is right now. Impeachment Iran and Iowa and obviously Iran is the dominating story here Given what has happened and what may not happen so after a week of escalating tensions with Iran president trump appears to be de escalating tensions. A A bit on the heels of the news that Iran fired onto Iraqi military bases but did so in a way not to cause any casualties president trump announced the United States. At least for now doesn't plan to respond with with more military force but there are going to be new sanctions on Iran's economy so join me now's NBC. News is Pentagon correspondent and national security correspondent. Nicki I coordinate. Hi Chuck thanks for having me. So let's start with what the president didn't actually say president did not say he wasn't going to to respond militarily anymore but he didn't say he was and he and he certainly seemed to identify any decided to say it appears that Iran is standing down and and he's that seemed to be his way of sending that the Pentagon is it. Is that what they believe that Iran is standing down so they believe that they're they're standing down the conventional threat from Iran. So it's it's not gotten a lot of attention because it's just been such a flurry of activity information. That's been flowing since these strikes for started started at five thirty. PM Eastern time on Tuesday evening. Iran responding with their conventional military is very unorthodox. Last time they I used to Mitchell military against the United States. I've actually been asking that same question. So they they have responded with believe it or not. They've taken to strike similar to this inside of Syria in the last several years against Isis. Believe it or not. So I mean so if there's any question about their capabilities and specifically their capabilities to strike with precision MHM that right there. In addition to the Saudi Aramco strike only a couple of months ago that all proves that they have the ability to strike with precision with these ballistic missiles. They miss their missile. Capability is actually only only gotten better specifically the short range just in the last several years so the fact that they responded conventionally is that is a big deal here it is clear clear. Sign that Iran wanted to send signals both domestic and it was for the international world and the US to see that they can and will respond but it was interesting. What message were they trying to send by? Going going out of their way they award won the Iraqi government before they were going to go on to their soil. They essentially gave the United States. Plenty of heads adds up to secure everything. They were basically putting the onus of casualties on the United States not themselves in an odd way. What message are they trying to send to the International Committee that? Hey we're just trying to defend ourselves and we're not escalating. What what message with were? They said that they don't escalate. They don't want a war. I mean one thing about the president's maximum maximum pressure campaign that Kennedy is working in Iran is the economic impact so Iran cannot afford a war right now. Not only do they not have the military capability to go up head to head with the United States and when you talk about to conventional militaries but they can't afford it would break the country a break their economy which is already in a very tenuous place so You know it. I think the next step here. The Pentagon people have breathed a little sigh of relief at because there was some a lot of concern yesterday. I mean everyone was on a hair trigger at the Pentagon. Yesterday there was no question. They were expecting an attack yesterday Now that it's happened we're getting a little bit of a better percents of what exactly they were looking at. They were seeing ballistic missiles. Move around in western Iran. That's not super uncommon. And they'll do that and not comparison. This feels like it's similar to what we did in Syria. Yes which is it's more of a symbolic attack it was not meant inflict real damage exactly and that is proof that Iran doesn't WANNA start a war here here what's what's fascinating about. That is Iran's in a way. Looks like they're measured in their response. In a way that you could make an argument. The trump administration was not taking out cost them Sulejmani who is a very a leader of an organization and of militias. All over for the world candidly who do have blood on their hands. And there's no question this was a bad guy okay but the US taking him out had the potential to be an absolute salute. Tinderbox there was there was a very real potential people with that. It's still not a tinderbox so and I think this is something you were trying to explain to me before we started which is just because Iran officially is done responding militarily that Iran's proxies might be might be upset with Iran's call it a muted response the fact that Iran didn't in in their in their view inflict bloodshed on the United States. So so the big the three big threats right now. I mean Iran Big Iran. The regime still could and most likely will carry out some cyber attacks and intrusions infiltrations. Whatever it is? They're good at that and they do it all the time. So is it in a direct response to call them Sola. Money isn't response to the you know the sanctions and whatnot. Who knows but beyond that? There's there's eight eater nine very serious strong militia. Groups Shia backed Schimmel Alicia groups that are backed by Iran. Some of the more the the ones that are a little bit more extreme. There's a decent chance there's a good chance. Actually that they will not see this as a strong enough response and then they will want to lash out now. If in fact there are angry at Iran about the possibilities they could lash out and do whatever they want and not even go back to bigger onto the organized exactly scarier more. HR metrics the guerrilla exactly. Because at least with Iran in the ayatollah and Kennedy in Qasim Salani they would look things from more of a strategic perspective than what some of these militia groups might do. Let me go back to the president's remarks I thought the most glaring omission in his remarks was any sort of olive branch to the Iraqi government. Yeah yeah it was a stunning omission to me. It sort of to me seemed to be a diplomatic mistake and my my my my sort of call an analytical view but it seemed to be a diplomatic doc or at least certainly a whiff i. I've actually been shocked about the entire administration response since the parliament voted that the US military they wanted the military to leave. We can't can't get a solid answer on exactly what the steps are here. Was this memo. What do you make of it? What's happened here? I mean I'll say I know this is a memo that apparently a draft memo of of how we would begin the process with the Iraqi government started to circulate in Iraq and yet we're not saying whoops yes hoops so general general steel as the head of the task force in Iraq so so everything incitement military inside of Iraq. He has a really good relationship. With General Joel Mir. WHO's in a way sort of his counterpart as much as you could have inside of Baghdad? They work very closely together. I spent about a week there with them and and a lot of time with the both of them in October and he general Sealy is a a very. He's very deferential. To the fact as are many American military frankly to the fact that the US there at the invitation of the Iraqi government from it and he does not want so when the Iraqi parliament makes a decision like this and then there's conversations with the Iraqi Prime Minister general silly is trying to be deferential to the fact that listen we have. He's he's always trying to coordinate to make sure there's there's there's no daylight between the two sides they they literally work in the saint this tiny little building on union three together so you you know poorly worded possibly but he was just informing them of the fact that there's going to be more helicopter noise because troops there there. It was about some MM troops leaving. The procedure is what you're saying. He was trying to inform them of procedure assault somewhat but some some of them were troops. That are leaving because the costume Selemani death meant that they suspended the counter isis and the training mission so some of those troops left what is the strategic the long term. What is the concern in the Pentagon that essentially that while I mean I think the president is going to say? Hey look I made Iran link. I got Sola Montana made overrun blink. But if in six months we're leaving Iraq and we have no our presence in Iraq. Then did Iran accomplished. I mean it seems to me. Iran's measured response was all about continuing to try to create a pressure campaign to get the United States out of Iraq MHM that that is the ultimate we know that's their ultimate objective and it seems like in that sense that's working what's so fascinating is Qasim Sulaimaniya. One of his big goals was always to get the US to leave Iraq and now it seems that his death may actually speed up that process so that so then what will be the long term. I'm like this is what I'm curious. What will we look back on? Is it in five years. We'll look back and Sulejmani will say boy that triggered out of Iraq which is what got the rise of Isis and then to I don't no no I mean like is that the scenarios that some of your sources are worried about so but remember president trump wants most troops out of Iraq. or He did. I mean he's sort of all over the place Americans the the other day when he was talking about. We're not GONNA leave and we'll slap sanctions on Iraq if they kick us out and we paid for this base which we all assume al-Assad the base. Actually that was attacked last night. A but for years we listen to him say he was pulling the use out of endless wars. And and you know kindle when I when I was there at some of these these outposts in Iraq they we're preparing for the eventuality that they were going to be told to leave..

This war Fred's talking about you could say got started a little more than a week ago when Iranian backed militias attacked American forces in Iraq killing. US civilian contractor. president retaliated by bombing militia sites and then militia members his attacks the US embassy in Baghdad damaging the property now that was an opportunity to push for some diplomacy but no in response to that which by the way didn't kill a single American inside the embassy didn't even injuring him. It was that which incited trump to to kill Sheila money over the years. Customs Hula Mani has been described by American officials as truly evil his coots force trained and resourced resourced Iranian fighters all over the Middle East but Americans have also describe soula Mani as pragmatic while he undoubtedly killed scores of US troops. He would partner with those who shared his interests. Americans relied on his iranian-backed forces to drive isis. Out of Iraq. Doc and even before that after nine eleven fred says Sulamani helped the American military target their response to Osama bin Laden Sulaimaniya shared intelligence because they had a lot of intelligence on Taliban al Qaeda and this relationship continued until George W Bush Bush and his State of the Union address pronounce that Iran Iraq and North Korea were part of an axis of evil north. Korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction. Destruction Iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror Iraq continues to flaunt hostility toward America and to support terror states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil arming to threaten the peace of the world world and then once the United States became engaged Iraq Iran. US relationship. Of course it evolved again. Dan and I wonder if you can explain how Sulamani got involved with Iraq as the conflict evolved and how that plays into what happened happened over the last few days right well you know. When when we overthrew Saddam Hussein a lot of the we should say Hussein was suny and he ran Iraq as a suny country? Iran is a Shia majority country. Yeah I mean. Saddam Hussein was a suny dictator. Who is making deals and oppressing the Shiite majority when he was overthrown Iran saw vacuum to move in there had been an eight-year your war between Iran and Iraq and the nine thousand nine hundred which killed more than a million people? The idea of having an opportunity to co opt or take take over Iraq was very much in Iran's interest it's often said that the biggest winner of the Iraq war was in fact Iran on and Sulamani was the guy who led up the militias that helped solidify Shia control of Kerak through. She'll leaders prime ministers ambassadors and You know for example. The the the Iranian ambassador to Iraq is a member of coots force when he is replaced he just replacement will be a member of coots force. They're all over the region. You mentioned engine the militias these Iranian backed militias in Iraq. And it wasn't just that they came to power politically in Iraq. It's that when Isis began to blossom. Awesome in Iraq. It was really these Iranian backed militias. That helped put that force down. It's right for a few years. Both in Iraq doc and Syria the Iraqi government Sumani and the United States were on the same side. We were all fighting Isis assists and Simoni pressure especially in Iraq was very potent force in that fight and end. Of course listen when the Iran nuclear deal is signed in Twenty fifteen from that moment until trump out of it in two thousand eighteen there was. It's not one single Iranian strike on an oil tanker on a US military base. I really on much of anything. So you know when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says well we have with this killing of Silla money. We have reestablished deterrents of Iran. Well not really friend says that part of what worries him about Sulamani. Killing is that it obliterates a shared history built on diplomacy diplomacy is the only way out of a war like this but the trump White House visit especially diplomatic and in fact we probably probably have the least experienced least educated most inattentive an indifferent national security team that we've ever seen in the United States government for for ages. I can't even think of president hold the those are strong words. They are strong words. How do you know that well look look around? pompeo at least in this situation Peyot has essentially publicly endorsed regime change in Iran so he has no credibility in going to Iran with a diplomatic overture. The Secretary of Defense Mike Esper- came to do the job not long ago. Having been a lobbyist for Raytheon he has no background policy whatsoever. Defense contractor. Yeah it depends contractor national security adviser adviser Robert O'Brien. He was a hostage negotiator. He has no background on any of this. Meanwhile over the past couple of years specialists lists inside the policy shops of the Pentagon State Department White House staff. They've left in droves either fired or resigned because they're upset that they have no influence on anymore so we have nobody in charge of what's going on. Who has dealt with these kinds of issues before are who has a deep knowledge of the region and so if you had a different kind of government right now they would be making Overtures through third parties to get the Iran nuclear deal back on the table. But you're saying he doesn't have the people to do this other people and I don't think he has inclination nation. We're in now is a really dangerous moment. Because one reason trump did this killed Seila money was that he was upset that some people viewed his failure her or his refusal to take military action in retaliation to other things. Iran had done as weak. So he didn't WanNa look weak anymore so this was gonna make him look strong and now if he backs off he's afraid he looks weak. If the Iran they've just had the second most important man in their country murdered assassinated. Assassination is not an illegitimate term to use him assassinated by the United States. People out in the streets. They're they're not going to back down because that'll make them look weak so we have a situation where escalation is something very hard to avoid and where both sides fear of appearing weak is driving us both in that direction. I mean the trump administration has said that they killed Sumani because there was an imminent attack. Plan this as a preventative measure. What evidence do we have of that round? No none is yet but you know let. Let's say there is evidence. Let's say it's true. It was going to happen. How does killing stealing money wreck? That Silla Mani it's not you. When when Osama.

"Extremely charismatic. Washington loves him the UK loves him. He's quite active. We've seen that already going places. People know who he is. He's mostly known for stabling American University of Iraq in Sulaimaniya, and he had previously been part of the P UK in the coming elections in this election, the previous elections he participated in the elections in an independent block after sort of falling out with the PK over the the referendum. The controversy about him was that he he had sided with the referendum. So that was a bit in how he's going to conciliate that fact right now as the president of Iraq when about a year ago, he was offering independent code the stone other opted Medea of AIBA leave. He's kai. Like body in a way, like either body annoyed that he's nice to everyone. No one has an issue with him. He doesn't really have that vibe sectarian vibe to him like, Molly, like New Jersey would. So he gives out. He's just a nice guy gets along. Well, but again, he does not have a strong parliament backing. So a lot of his decisions might be sort of curbed by most of the southern or by Ameri people with the largest number of votes within within the elections people with the blocks that dominate the parliament, the only thing I'd ended that I think bar Sala has president is it's an interesting change in the dynamic from the last government where our home Sala has a lot of established relationships in Washington in London in Tehran in elsewhere in the region. And I think is going to be a lot more active than the the prior president Masumi and. You know, what that brings to the table will? We'll see I think he's constrained because the job description of Iraq's president is largely that of a figurehead decision. So, but but he's he's definitely gonna try to make more added a position than his predecessor did. And then if you, you know, going back if you more years, obviously, Jalal Talabani was influential as president. But the question is was that because Jalal Taliban was really infleuntial figure as the head of the p UK who basically was the commander of the UK peshmerga and sort of figured reckoned with in Iraq who happened to be president. So I think that charismatic as he may be as many relationship he may have it'll be difficult for him solid to replicate the scope of sort of a role that that allow Taliban had, but I think you'll be more dynamic than who admitted soon was the on what Russia said about auto ob-, don't mess mess. D I think an interesting. Namic? There is that he does have this background as an economist, and I'm speculating here. But I imagine he may be more ideologically aligned with sort of reforms reducing bloated government expenditures on public salaries welfare etcetera, but that is the opposite direction that things are sort of trending in because as Russian noted previously the response to protest is always throw money at the problem. So I think you've got an there may be an interesting dynamic building down the road where. The is perhaps Idi logically supportive of the kind of economic reform that the IMF is suggested in the past as part of the now kind of dormant standby razor with Iraq. But the circumstance political pressure calls for basically the polar opposite of that. And then on speaker of parliament hell Busey nothing really to add their correct me if I'm wrong Russia, but he is affiliated with the car bullies at hell blocks, we may have to the extent to which that will provide him parliamentary backing and sort of political support. I guess that's where it comes from. But yeah, he's not the sort of senior established figures that we've seen in previous speakers of parliament. So this past October laid October twenty four twenty fifth. We see kind of the last step of this government formation process. Come into play. The new prime minister presents his kind of slate of candidates over the course of a couple of days. Some are approved some aren't approved and we end up with his final cabinet that gets voted approved sufficient to establish the government one notable aspect of this os that our survey concedes for the ministry of defense. Ministry of Justice ministry of interior, certainly three prominent ministries. This is an unprecedented. We seen prior prime ministers..
