"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself.

Yes, Capitol Rioters Were Armed. Here Are The Weapons They Used

"Of the people who attacked the U. S Capitol in January six. Syria's of videos on the FBI website shows the mob punching and beating officers. It also shows rioters using what appear to be batons and baseball bats and dousing some police with chemical sprays. Still, some have falsely claimed that the capital riders were not really armed. That day. NPR investigative correspondent Tom Dreisbach reports on why that's just not true. Not long after the Capitol riot, Republican Senator Ron Johnson said this the fact the matter is this didn't seem isn't like an armed insurrection to me. When you hear arm don't stick up firearms, it's become a popular narrative that the capital riot was not really armed. It's also misleading. First, Let's talk about guns. It is true that the only gun fired on January 6th was by law enforcement who killed writer Ashley Babbitt. But the Justice Department has brought gun charges against at least three people connected to the violence of the capital. Those three are not alleged to have breached the building. One of those defendants, Lonnie Kaufman, allegedly parked his truck near the capital filled with what a federal judge called a small armory authorities seizing from Kaufman's truck, multiple firearms, a crossbow. And a cooler containing particularly lethal homemade Molotov cocktails. Prosecutors have also cited evidence from Facebook posts and witness statements that other writers brought guns on the Capitol grounds, too. Capitol Police estimate around 800 people breached the building. But the vast majority were not arrested or searched at the time, so we just don't know exactly how many might have been carrying guns. But the other weapons people were armed with Those were plainly visible from the footage that day. investigators say there were batons, fire extinguishers, baseball bats, clubs, at least one stun gun. As well as pepper spray. Those weapons are often classified as less lethal. But police expert Lorenzo Boyd says they can still be deadly. What we do know is there were a lot of other weapons that could be lethal weapons as applied, officials say more than 100 officers were injured on January 6th entry, suffering gouged eyes, concussions and damage spinal discs. Capitol Police officer Brian Sick. Nick was allegedly sprayed by two writers with an unidentified chemical and died the following day. Authorities still have not identified his exact cause of death. NPR has been tracking every single criminal case related to the capital riots. Now more than 300 of those cases, we've identified nearly 40 that reference, a suspect wielding some sort of weapon. This was a pretty heavily armed crew of people compared to what you usually see it protests that tidy Pyrrhic, co founder of the global project on Hate and extremism. She's followed extremist groups for decades. Even when you see people who are armed it protests and states, for example, where they have open carry laws. They aren't storming into a building using the weapons in the way that we saw at the Capitol. What's clear is that given the weaponry seen on January, 6th things could have been a lot worse but by Rick is concerned that efforts to downplay the violence are less about the fax. About politics. There's a reluctance on the part of some in conservative circles to accept that domestic terrorism is largely coming from right wing extremist groups and to actually confront violent extremism in this country, she says. We have to be clear about just how dangerous it can be. Tom Dreisbach. NPR news

It's very unfortunate. I myself was a country that in syria before the crisis started and i never imagined that after ten years of conflict i will still be working as a humanitarian worker. Providing aid to the to the people syria who has been affected affected by ovulation. This year we estimate that approximately more than thirteen point seven million people who are who would be in need of humanitarian assistance. And he had. I mean the variety of the human humanitarian assistance is assistance is like you need the entire dropdown menu of humanitarian humanitarian assistance. For those people inside syria we are the suffering of the people women children and that it's really hard at the heartbreaking for somebody who works in the humanitarian field but also for somebody who worked in syria and syria before the conflict started. Let alone for somebody who comes from the region. It's really heartbreaking to see the situation in syria and how this country now the people of this country the syrian people are facing oldest challenges and built situations mr. Do what can concerned people listening to this interview to help you. End until the people of syria to survive the ongoing conflict until some political fountain. Fighting as you like you said what is needed now is a ticket solution. And let's be clear about the end of the crisis is what everybody wants. Not only in syria but in the region and entire world people can make a difference. Everybody can make a difference. There are two types of interventions people can do first of all. We need to make sure that politicians apply pressure politicians who have influenced countries who have influenced governments influence apply pressure on all warring parties in in syrian factions to make sure that they put their weapons aside and sit on a table. Starting talking about t start talking about the best interest of the people. It's time to put the interest of the people before any other interest. What is more important now is. The people is the future of the syrian people and the future of syria as as a country. In addition to that of course until solution is found there is no alternative to that humanitarian support to the people as i said. Millions and millions of syrian people need need different type of protection and a lot of The platforms lot of ways to donate money. So the world food program to unisom f- Other other agencies ngos that is this is the time really to stand by the syrian people to show them that. It's not only the not alone in this in this world.

"Last time we talked about Syria on the show was back in October of two thousand. Nineteen president trump removed. Us troops and Turkey moved in. There was a new humanitarian crisis in northern Syria on the Turkish border but now the worst humanitarian crisis in Syria is now nine year. Civil war is unfolding along a different part of its border with Turkey and it Lib province in northwestern Syria this crisis has less to do with trump removing troops and more to do with the decision that the world sorta collectively made during President Obama's tenure to avoid involvement in another endless foreign conflict. That decision gave Russia and bazaar control and now it La- province is the last desperate stronghold for those who oppose Alyssa. Dr Omar. Al Hiraki is right in the middle of it. I spoke on Wednesday over skype right after he finished performing surgery. Hello Mark can you hear me Ya? I can hear clearly. Hi thanks for making time for us and I spoke with you. Tell me a little bit about what's going on in the province in northern Syria. Right now ya unfortunately now where it was now witnessing heartache across the tees by Assad regime backed by Russia in the air and a pro Iranian militias on the ground northwest Syria present one of the world's muster humanitarian crisis Where civilian aw supporting on extraordinary little's to be specific? We are talking about one million civilians who have been fleeing their homes Reporter and unfortunately the crisis is worsened by the winter and freezing weather and the majority of the internal displaced persons are now live in informal camps. Oh field with little or no access to the healthcare services water sanitation and hydrogen. And when people come to you and your hospital what condition are the? What are they coming in? Most needing y'all hospital received the an enormous number of patients who have been recently displaced so we work around the clock to operate a pay. Our patients the Pasta majority of them are Wa- related Injuries By the bumbling and air strikes against billions the majority of them are women children so despite the dire conditions and war sneak security. We are trying to to to deal with the situation with our resources. Despite the fact that there is a lack of funds for the medical facilities here in lip by the international community and international organization and the Russian detail in in the U. N. to cross-border AIDS for our prevents. Where does that leave you? What what are you? What are you offering people when they come in? Are you able to save lives or do you feel like you've got a hand or two tied behind your back yard? We have been working tirelessly to provide emergency medical services for people here to save lives as possible as we can and there is a lack equipment. Lack of medicines We're we're forced to seize mickle. Perations and glows host beetle. Amid mass displacement Antos tallies because a lack of fund for our hosts because as well as the most important point that more than seventy Had BEEN TARGETED BY THAT SAD. War plans which concede that war crimes and yesterday. Ten schools have been bombed deliberately by the Assad missiles in lip city on the moderate Muslims in northern countryside. And that's war. Crimes against civilians beating are paying the price of this poodle. Are you scared for your own safety yacht to to to be honest We are under the threat of being attacked by the Assad regime. More war cans because we are working in one of the most dangerous area on the word. And as I told you the host is more dangerous than the front line however we risk our lives to help the sick and Angel our people and civilians we go to a work now knowing that said we may not return our homes simply. That's our duty. How do your colleagues feel about working trying to save the lives of Syrians? While the leader of Syria might one day attack. Your hospital young. We we when you see a church Holden and women and trying to save lives. The we protect everything you will you will forget shelling and attacking a bottle bomb. Just you will focus on how to save lives. How Do to protect Holidays that the limb of your patients or to to trying to do anything for him. That's our duty so we are knowing that the maybe tomorrow we will not be alive and we try to love just to. Its to think anything rather than dying. How long have you been there walking here since two thousand fourteen? I've I've worked two years in Aleppo City in Eastern Free Aleppo and now in the sense that two thousand sixteen is. Is this the worst? It's ever been I think so because of the incredible humanitarian crisis because when you see the people walk fleeing their homes while trapped between the close to explore the ability to relocate other parts of Syria with guarantees of their safety you will be sad would be shocked because sometimes when when I want to maybe a transport patients from one area to another or to discharge them home. They told me we don't have. We don't have even tense because even Having attacked by the PRU tunnel Assad regime. Do you feel like the world has forgotten about these one million refugees about Syria. What we think so all the people he say that the humidity is dying. Cnn's feel abundant by by by the word. Because the why why the international community is blind deaf mutes to the endless daily atrocity by the Assad regime unfortunately the international community is unable to deter Assad regime killing civilians in live bumping costs Beatles bumping schools. That's important international community. So you know. What would you say to people listening? What do you want people to do? We hope that the American citizens pressure on the President Donald Trump to to to stop the atrocities by Assad regime and immediately mobilized for emergency funding. And tell us as medical stopped here to meet the needs of displaced population and to stop this brutal war and get dried off shot. Assad to have democracy here to have freedom and for full for our people or it's not only humanitarian crisis for three point. Five million here. We are talking about three million in Turkey. One millions in Lebanon and half a million one million in in Europe and maybe a Millions journalists place in other parts of Syria. It's it's complicated butts by Donald Trump international community. They can intervene to stop atrocities by the Assad regime.

"Hi Guys it's me tie pool. I'm back in Iowa way more questions things. Like what are animals saying to Jerry. Why is space? Oh what's the science behind in this season. I'm willing to go where no seventh-grader has ever gone before to find you. The answers the rest your eyes and prepare your ears for all new episodes of tusks Y in recent years. The war in Syria has taken as we talked about their backstage to other international news. Critic say this has allowed the Assad regime to continue tinu attacking civilians largely unchecked. Karim Shaheen is the former correspondent for the Guardian Middle East and he is now based in Montreal. And that's what we've reached him this morning. Hello Hi thanks for having. So what are you thinking about when you hear those voices both the doctor directly in Syria and the UN worker just on the other side of the border in Turkey. You know. I remember interviewing Dr Farida. A couple of years ago when when she was besieged in another part of the country in Aleppo And you know fortunately originally. We were so happy at the time to find out that she had managed to leave with her With her daughter and and reach safety in Lebanon now safety net Lib. There's no more I think the Christ shows shows us once again that human life In the region has no value that the international community is always willing to stand standby and wring its hands You know watching as these conflicts unfold and do nothing while the suffering continues. I mean we're talking about Three quarters of a million million people who have had to pick up their lives and leave their homes and move and try to find safety and Subzero temperatures intense out in the open the scenes. We're we're seeing from there are truly apocalyptic We're talking about three quarters of a million people out of three million One point two million of them are children. The vast majority thirty of them are women and children They're extremely vulnerable. They've been displaced. Some of them have been displaced more than ten times. So far The targeting of civilian infrastructure infrastructure. I mean the the hospitals being attacked. We don't quite You know when when we look at the big picture. There is such a systematic assault on health. Care You know we're talking about Over seventy attacks on hostels last year loan and and and as always talking there with the the UN coordinator. And I know you believe this to that as the world has sort of turned away because you know for all sorts of reasons new cycle included. What has that done to President Assads power to to his ability to to bomb hospitals and go after civilians. I think more so than the international media attention. I think the inaction of the international community that that has allowed You know these these This behavior to go unchecked for so many years has just slowly eroded The international norms that we had going into the conflict in two thousand seventeen I wanted to cover the chemical attacks that took place there And more than eighty people had been killed. We we never knew how many exactly because you know they were buried all over the place but you know the response to it was basically a slap on the wrist. Um You know bombing on a military base. That they had been told in advance was going to be bombed you know. Assad has repeatedly used chemical weapons he has never faced any serious consequences for that Hundreds of of tax on healthcare facilities from two thousand twelve onwards onwards that took place with impunity. And nothing happened. Half a million people have died over the conflict and nobody is paid for it. Well I mean it makes you think of the former President Obama is infamous. Ms Red Line and that red line is I. Guess it's long been erased at it absolutely an important thing to look at the legacy of the Syria conflict is you know the the red line You know their headline statement ensured that The I mean before it was before the regime used chemical weapons It saw that it was was able to use every other methods of killing to To win back power After the chemical attack happened and In two thousand thirteen and no real response to place They realized said they could use chemical weapons as well with impunity Over the course of Of the conflict in nine years you know enough have been bombed in chemical tax if they can place Enough Bakeries is in markets have been destroyed That these norms that we took for granted in the prosecution of war are gone. Now we're fighting more. You know the way we used to fight it you know decades ago It's it's no. We no longer have those those norms in place to protect the things that we agreed upon our civilized conduct in warfare. Now I know this is a Canada. Doesn't play a huge role in in this region Obviously the we would need the support of the United States and and others allies. Is there or anything that Canada could or should be doing. I think there is. I mean like you said it. Kinda does not is not present on the ground. So the countries that have forces on the ground like Turkey like Russia like Iran are the ones who are determining what happens on a day-to-day basis and whether there's a ceasefire or not But I think candidate can play a role in mediating in supporting peacebuilding activities in You know Canada's not involved in arming the rebels or in a supporting the government so Canada can play a mediation creation role. They can contribute to ongoing side show. peace talks at the U N is Is brokering there's an ongoing process. That's meant to draft a new constitution and for Syria after the war and that involves representatives from the government and from the opposition from civil society candidate can play an important role in supporting these efforts. But I think an adult's needs to look got you know the potential for hosting more refugees quite frankly I mean account has been more generous than a lot of western European countries with the exception of Germany and Sweden but look at Turkey. I mean Turkey is a neighboring country Syria. They're hosting close to four million refugees. They've actually lost. Elections are turned elections on the question of refugees and it's a longer viable for them to have anymore more for a million people out of eighty million that's candidate taking in two million refugees in Lebanon next door at the height of the crisis had Four million people and and one million refugees so one one out of five people you met was a Syrian refugee So I think Canada can look into into expanding its Its support for the refugee resettlement and In the next year or so okay. Kareem Shaheen's wish. I had more time. Thank you for coming in appreciate your time today. Thank you so much.

"Res- Manager Committee Council Budget Right now the Russians are occupying as could just recap Russia literally walked into areas of Syria that the US was controlling and patrolling just a few days ago and they've now been we help take them over because Russia is so close with Sharla Saad of Syria and without the US being there anymore Russia has free rein over that area exactly right and that brings us to the second prediction which is that this would be really really good for Bishara Saad so Michael that Assad in twenty eleven thought he probably wouldn't get out of Syria live then for a long time people said well his country he's GonNa fracture he's going to hold onto those small parts of the country where his political party and his ethnic group basically controls all but the rest of the place is going to break away or wants the Russians came in in two thousand fifteen Assad actually was able to spread his wings region gained control except in this one area in this one part near critical oil supplies near lot of the other wealth that he needs for his regime that was being controlled by the Kurds and the Kurds were backed by the Americans and the only thing standing between Assad and controlling this area was the fact that he would have to go take on the American gins who were in the region even though it was a very small number so what exactly did Assad do once the US pulls back from this part of at the request of Turkey well he moved to get his country back he literally streams troops into the region rolling in to a hero's welcome on top and then because the courage realized they've got no one else to turn to they flip and join up with ASSADS forces in facing off with Turkey those Kurdish forces are going to partner with the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad this was brokered by the Russians all day literally change dances within a few days so suddenly the force that he was fighting is on his side and Bachar Assad gets to make the rules it's about who's GonNa live there and where and when and who will control the oil so all of a sudden Assad has gone from having what is eventually been a rebel controlled region to having the rebels rely on him for support that's kind of astonishing it couldn't have worked out editor for Bashar Assad if he had called a national security meeting and said to his generals give me blue sky of what's the best the US just up and left and that of course turned what had been just a festering political issue in two his Great Opportunity Okay Stephen What's our next prediction that king drew well a lot of people in wash nineteen said this'll help the Iranians the one country that Donald Trump most despises the one he most wants to crush with sanctions the one who he's worried about the most gaining influence in the region yeah so how is it helping ron it's helping Iran because their ally Assad gains power and territory and the United States ends up pulling back so what was an opportunity to go keep an eye on the Iranians and perhaps push back on their influence inside Syria that leverage is all gone right the other thing it does for Ron of course is they use Syria as a pathway to get weapons to Hezbollah a terrorist group that's threatening Israel among others news now those weapons didn't run through the Kurdish territory but certainly if the United States is pulling back and is no longer going to be a presence in the country the Iranians have to take that as one less toll on the highway and so in that way president trump's decision here may mean in life more difficult and more dangerous for one of our allies Israel that's right the ally he talks the most about defending now let's not overestimate eight this because there were vast parts of Syria that Iran had free rein in before this happened but certainly the image of the the United States and not having the stomach to keep a really small investment inside Syria sends a message to Toronto rings lab unclear is a psychological element to this the Middle East is all about power and if you were detected to be weak others going to go make move so for all the United States has done to make life miserable for Iran sanctions sabotage side Robert Tax the one thing they do with a physical military presence is they pick up and they hold back from contested territory signal weakness they signal that they can be taken.

"Alex Ward coast of the worldly podcast national security reporter vox a little over a week ago we covered that president trump announced that he wanted to withdraw fifty US troops from northern Syria and just after that announcement we left it at the fact that Turkey was amassing troops and tanks and armored military vehicles on the Syrian border what has happened since then basically the nightmare scenario despite growing internet national condemnation Turkey isn't holding back attacked on all sides the Kurds pounded by Turkish artillery with death destruction on the ground trump didn't want those troops to come into Syria they came into Syria Turkish troops along with their own proxies in the country started to take over towns advancing with the help of narrow malicious the same ones we saw last night executing Kurds by the roadside were at it again today in US officials tell NBC News killing Kurds American allies including a female Kurdish politician you're seeing at least over one hundred thousand people being displaced because of fighting that's happening Kurdish hospitals have been overwhelmed with casualties small children among them Turkish. militias took ground quickly and ruthlessly and even executed these Kurdish soldiers and civilians on the roadside so if you were looking for the I case scenario of what could have happened when trump as withdrawal announcement were already there when exactly did Turkish forces enter Syria the best reporting we have is that it was Wednesday so the White House made a late Sunday announcement last week that the US troops worth drawing which meant about seventy two hours later Turkey came in so we've now been dealing with six days of pure violence what the Turkish troops do as soon as they entered Syria Turkish back troops at least what we've seen from horrifying videos online have started to shoot it Kurds and in fact kill Kurds they have started to move further southwards so instead of what Turkey has always said it wanted about twenty kilometers or so of a buffer zone between the Syrian territory and Turkey itself it sounds like they're gonNA move even further southward what are the Kurds doing are they fleeing or are they fighting or both a bit of both the other bit is that they are still continuing into guard certain camps where there are internally displaced people from years of the series of a war and we're even isis detainees but a lot of them of course are fleeing because it it's just a horrible situation and they are trying to escape being killed all this as Syria's state news agency says units from the Syrian army a moving north to confront takings offensive right now what you have is Kurdish forces they have made a deal with Syrian President Bashar Al Assad so his forces already in northern Syria so you're going to start seeing a Turkish Syria clash that the Kurds will definitely be fighting also on Assad side what's the history of The relationship between Syrian Kurds and Bishara asset the Syrian rebel forces that America had backed for a long time originally a lot of them we're going against Assad but then when America started backing Anti Isis for so the cursor we've been backing have been pretty much solely focused on defeating Isis assads mostly August on anti-government rebels so you've seen an an American enemy Assad now join a American ally the Kurds fight against a mutual enemy which is Turkey so to be clear here Turkey is at war with the Kurds who are in Syria and thus the curve words and Syria are at war with Turkey exactly in America right now nowhere to be seen and what kind of vacuum does that create for Isis which the Kurds suppressing the last thing America would want is for more chaos come out in Syria that would give isis room to both recruit and reconstitute its ranks really what happened is Turkey's moved southward into Syria we've just seen Kurdish fighters try to fend them off their attention is taken elsewhere and there are a detainees many of which are isis cheering. What's happening right now to the point that they are starting riots raising tents going after guards and trying to escape hundreds of family members of Isis fighters today broke out of a detention camp we visited a prison packed with five thousand Isis detainees are now attempted breakouts here daily and one could imagine that Isis reconstitute itself and comes back stronger you know months two years from now and what about the rest of the United States troops that are in Syria I mean trump was talking about moving fifty of them but there's like another thousand they were originally two thousand and December thousand as of March and what we I heard from the White House last week was hey only fifty? US troops that are in the north head southward because the Turks are coming what changed is that and we learned on Sunday from Defense Secretary Mark Esperer where he mentioned it onto Sunday new shows so I spoke with the president last night after discussions with the rest of national security team and he directed that we begin deliberate withdraw forces from northern Syria from northern Sierra she's where most of our forces are so one thousand troops that how long he goes we have no timeline for the removal reports differ there are some saying it's going to be within days there other we'll be more deliberate but basically it's America's getting out to president trump no that this was coming when he said he would move fifty US troops last Sunday he surely was warned about this I mean last December he basically tried the same thing right we're pulling all US troops out we have one against Isis and now it's time for our troops to come back home that move was reversed because surely someone talked to him about all these ramifications in this decision is a withdrawal all of our forces in Syria now were dramatically less safe this is an Obama light move but even trump would tweet like I have waited for three years now is the time and so either he knew this was coming in didn't care or I don't even know if this is worse but he's withdrawing US troops and then this happen open but what we know is that trump was very clearly underprepared for his phone call with Air Dewan back on October sixth I believe it was and Turkey said we WANNA come in trump goes okay you handle the isis deal you handle northern Syria we don't need to be there and that works perfect Turkey and trump clearly didn't think of the ramifications of what could have happened in his mind perhaps circuit was going to live up to its patients and deal with Isis and protect the current somehow at Senator Cetera clearly that has not happened so what we are going to see a lot of these Kurdish forces who were previously backed by the United states in northeastern Syria are now going to work with the Russians and the regime of Bashar al-Assad this is a major development because this is exactly what Russian President Vladimir Putin has been trying to do in Syria over a very long period of time we've even seen on Tuesday the Russian government announced that it has troops effectively in the same area where US troops just laughed and so if you are Putin trump's withdrawal is a major gift you put troops with a US was you now have more influence in Syria you're helping Assad and you're able to go up against Turkey which is a NATO ally this sounds like a powder keg that was waiting to explode for years and the one thing that was standing in the way was US troops. Why did the President Acquiesce last week it seems because air to want asked him to Turkey has long been saying it wanted to go in the northern Syria to take out the Kurds effectively the only reason they hadn't done so was because there were the American troops in the north as a buffer in tripwire that Turkey would not risk shooting against the NATO ally well that risk is gone and so that's why they're in and that's why we're in this mess after all the blowback the president received when he announced that he was going to pull out troops he kind of conceded on some level and promised to totally destroy and obliterate Turkey's economy if they started slaughtering Syrian Kurds now they've started to do that is he doing anything yeah trump followed through on his threat he put out a statement on Monday saying that dealing with Lindsey Graham and many members of Congress including Democrats about him posing powerful sanctions on Turkey Treasury is ready to go additional legislation may be sought there is great consensus on this Turkey has asked that it not be done stay tuned and he's sending his Vice President Mike Pence and his national security adviser to Turkey with the president of the United States called on the president of Turkey to stop the invasion to enact an immediate ceasefire to begin negotiations and with Kurdish forces in Syria Treasury Department is about to start putting in penalties on current and former officials of the focus government and basically anyone contributing to Turkey's actions in Syria us even gonNA raise steel tariffs up to fifty percent and that's a big deal will and that basically all trade negotiations with Turkey are just going to cease for right now it doesn't we don't really have a timeline for when this is going to happen but now this is the most credible threat from trump that sanctions are coming over Turkey's own actions in Syria the problem here is that of course is the US going after a NATO ally and this is going to immediately tank relations between the two countries but that's only par for the course because even though they have been allies for decades the US Turkey have just not been friends for a while and is only the latest and frankly most horrifying aspect of their fall from Grace.

"Responded to that in Syria I mean the Kurds have been left with really no option since since being abandoned by America so it's turned to the regime of Bustle Assad for support jihadists and finally now the Kurds but after eight years of fighting it seems like actually Bush are other side is is about to recapture the north I mean certainly that's has to be minis are being held so I I think the situation is only going to get worse and even before the invasion American fficials morning that I was making a comeback Kurds are are refusing and they don't WANNA cooperate with the Americans I mean for for understandable reasons so it's not even clear how new alliance with Assad is going to affect.

"Tomorrow's making such an important point that I just wanna foot stomp, which is the US military presence in Syria had slightly more than a superficial role against the Iranians. But what it did do is it? I think put the Iranians and Hezbollah a little bit on edge. And that's not necessarily a good thing. If it is not really thought out mean, it's it's been a little surprising to me that you have not seen an attack by the ins, or by his baller, any of the other sort of proxies out there on the US presence sort of Allah, Eighty-three Beirut and the marine barracks bombing. But it seems to me was probably only a matter of time before something like that happened because you've been hearing from a lot of folks. Yes, we're there to fight ISIS. But oh, wait actually were there to have this big. On the Iranians in reality. It was having a somewhat kind of minimal effect on the Iranians beyond starting to get the mole murmurs. So were they looking over their shoulder bit, probably. But that also means they were almost surely trying to figure out what do I do under these circumstances? Do I wanna actually more actively? But with less fingerprints try to try to come to the Americans and some sort of way. So I think what you're hearing from all of us is there sure has been a need to step back reassess. What what has been doing in Syria? What are actually kind of feasible end states and are willing to win the resources to get to those end states cetera et cetera. But you know, you could do that. Or you could just tweet. We'll meet add, but really Aska as Mara question. Which is when we think about Syria, we're of course, thinking about it as discrete feeder. But the Syria and rock eaters are very linked the operations overlap. The problems overlap, and it's quite plausible that the United States does continue operations targeting Syria or these Lama state in Syria, they'll come from Iraq. But what is all this mean for the US presence in Iraq? Does this mean that the United States should they should expect the United States to draw down there to does it actually menial increase because it's a last bastion of? I've unheard much on Iraq. When I think of them is very overlapping. Absolutely. I think that's a superb question, and I have no idea what the answer is. But it's exactly what we should be looking for right? Because this is such I if you focus in particular on the counter ISIS piece, this is such a linked conflict. And that's where kind of rules engagement over these next coming weeks, and the nature and extent of the withdrawal will be really important to look toward you know. Is it that you will potentially have the US military redeployed to Jordan into Iraq? And then go in and out is it sort of like squeezing the balloon filled double down and focus on Iraq might gut is that they will try to do that. Because they'll feel like that's a security blanket the challenge, then of course, as was squeezing the balloon any sort of ISIS types will will want to go to Syria. So, you know, if you're not actually going to deal with one of the sanctuaries as we've seen with Afghanistan, Pakistan, it's going to bite you. But I think you're giving us a really good list of kind of indicators in warnings to look to for the next few weeks direct question. I will say the there have been reports from people in the government, I'll know of at the administration or the people who have the final word on this. They say the rack posher isn't changing that's been with said that of course, could change moving forward and has been play already because we have the new government arrack. There's been talk about what that what their tolerance for presences is seem that there is maybe a loose working consensus towards the status quo. But we that was going one angle. I'll just add in here on the Raqi front that. As the international warrior in the room. I'll mention is that Iraq was in a little bit of a long-term difficult position because the entire US in particular coalition operation from international legal basis, and kind of international legitimacy basis was premised on the Iraqi requests for help against ISIS, and the more that mission pivoted towards a would look like a Iran bouncing mission that put arrack in a really difficult position..

"Syria thing is really about putting pressure on ran because that's the ones who they really fucking hate and who they wanna see gone and so anyway obama at a certain point and you know he was certainly pressured to do this but as as a as the shiites are gaining power and people are getting more and more concerned about iran there there was this pressure to switch and to now make sure that that that their power was checked so in perhaps the most disgusting active treason one could imagine under obama we actually started siding with the suny radicals who were opposed to aram and more directly who were opposed to assad in syria and the reason why i say it's inactive treason is because these sunni radicals were made up of alqaeda and what later became isis al qaeda for those of you who remember are the ones who took down the towers in new york these are the people who actually if we had a legitimate war against anyone they were the only people these people actually had american blood on their hands and you can go back to all the things you know certainly america had a lot of muslim blood on their hands and you know but if there's anybody who it would be treasonous to work with it would be those guys so john mccain went over and he he visited syria and he said well you know we need we need to support these moderate rebels in their fight against assad and you know people like lindsey graham champions this this policy and you know there's anyway.
