Pres. Trump: Putin Would Not Have Attacked Ukraine if I Was President

"So there's a story It's not a story It's real It happened But during your presidency there were some Russian mercenaries on the Syrian battlefield And you and the defense secretary you being the commander in chief You wiped out those Russian marks and the Russians didn't believe you Apparently through a de confliction you called them you told them hey get these Russian mercenaries off the battlefield The Russians thought you were kidding You weren't You wiped them out They are now no longer They don't exist Again I know you're not a global interventionist I'm not either You're an America first guy and so am I but I think it speaks to the lack of respect they have for Biden and the respect they had for you because after you did that did you notice Putin never said a darn word about it mister president That story to this day not a lot of people know about it Well I hated having to do it but you know they kept taunting us And the Russians were taunting us And we gave them a warning We said look don't do it again Don't do it again Don't do it again Three times If you do it again we're going to have to take action and we took action I was surprised they did it And we did It was a lot of people I hate it I hated to do it But we had to And frankly we didn't do it I think they would have wiped out our people if you want to know the truth because there was a tremendous thing going on And I don't think necessarily that was the reason but Putin a 100% would not have attacked Ukraine if I were president meaning if the election wasn't rigged which it was It was totally rigged So rigged election with the mail in ballots at every other thing they did And if the election were where it should have been there would be no problem with inflation with gas prices with the economy And even more importantly because you see how bad this thing is spinning out of control there would have been no problem with Ukraine and Russia He would not have gone

Russia Is Trying to Recruit Syrians to Fight in Ukraine

"Update on Ukraine. This is day 14. And believe it or not, Pentagon says they have evidence that Russia is trying to recruit Syrians to fight on their behalf in Ukraine. The Wall Street Journal reported the same thing last night. And The Pentagon is now assessing that nearly 100% of the nearly 200,000 Russian combat troops that were on the Ukrainian border are now committed to the fight. Russia has launched more than 625 missiles at Ukraine since the invasion began. And these rockets are hitting civilian populations. Including a hospital and a maternity ward. Airspace is still contested. One senior official said, and I'm quoting. We do continue to assess the president zelensky has a vast majority of its fixed wing aircraft steel available to him.

WHO and WHAT Is Standing in the Way of Peace in Ukraine?

"From newsweek dot com it says Ukrainian nationalist volunteers committing ISIS style war crimes is back from 2014. Cutting heads off and decapitating people. Now NBC News says that Putin is using false Nazi narrative justify Russian attack on Ukraine. Let's put that aside. I'm not here to say if Putin is right or wrong in that particular instance. What I am saying though is that when PBS can't went and went to Ukraine, they interviewed someone from this region, America's public broadcasting service published and promoted an interview with a renowned neo Nazi Ukrainian mayor. Without disclosing its politicians allegiance to World War II German leader Adolf Hitler and Ukraine's own Nazi sympathizer Stepan bandera. This is PBS that aired this. The interview comes just days after PBS published an article downplaying the links between neo Nazi politicians and the Ukrainian current political situation. On Thursday, March 4th, PBS hosted mayor Artem, some of top, and the country's northeast region. I'm reading from national pulse dot com. He says quote, my weapon is American and I feel like our occupiers will be pleased that we are killing them with American weapons. Now, it is not an exaggeration that these are legitimate Nazis. In fact, the PBS interview summit posed with a bandera portrait behind him. Albeit blurred out by PBS and their attempts to obscure their work with Ukrainian neo Nazis. Now we warned against this the very same people that have told us to get involved and support some of these Ukrainian groups are the same people that told us that we had a support the Syrian rebel rebels and the Syrian rebels ended up being friends with ISIS.

John Zmirak Explains Why a Ukraine No-Fly Zone Is a Terrible Idea

"I continue my conversation with John, zamir. John, let's keep going. All right, one of the crazy ideas that are floating around today in the hysterical propaganda atmosphere of our media coverage of the war in Ukraine. People are saying, we should impose a no fly zone over Ukraine. That's sounds good. Let's do a new fly zone. Nobody said don't rush in planes. What that would mean is U.S. planes flying over Ukraine shooting down Russian planes. Now that sounds like a safe idea, right? Top Gun only in real life with nuclear weapons on a hair trigger. This is not the first time. In 2016, when Donald Trump was still a long shot contender for the presidential nomination, the one of the debates was on foreign policy. And you had 16 Republicans in two separate debates. Out of the 16, 13 of them favored the U.S. flying over Syria to shoot down Russian planes that were helping the Syrian government fight Al-Qaeda. Because the Syrian government that we've all been told and first of all, Syrian government is bad. It's a nasty dictatorship. But we were told it's Hitler. It's Satan is the worst thing in the world. And we're going to help the moderate rebels who are trying to overthrow the government of Syria. John McCain went over there, met with them, said, yes, they're moderate rebels. There were no moderate rebels. They were Al-Qaeda, the same people who bombed New York City and The Pentagon. 13 of 16 Republican candidates wanted to threaten to shoot down Russian planes to help Al-Qaeda take over Syria where they would have ethnically cleansed a million Christians just the way the jihadis had cleansed the plans almost a million Christians from

Germany Does 180 on Defense Spending

"Now, I am not a psychiatrist psychologist and I don't project my impressions of leaders onto the media. Because I'm not in a position to judge Putin's state of mind. I just know what he's doing and what he's doing is reverting to Chechnya and Syrian tactics. In terms of what you've seen, I can judge the state of the mind of the German public because all of a sudden nearly 90% of them support massive hikes and defense spending as a former NATO allied supreme commander. That's got a surprise you and encourage you. It's been quite amazing to watch something I've been personally lobbying for and advocating for, along with the entire U.S. government for three decades. And in my case, four years is supreme allied commander literally buttonhole in Chancellor Merkel and then minister of defense, Ursula von der leyen, who's now the head of the European Union, personally button holing them and begging them to increase defense spending and all of a sudden in 48 hours Vladimir Putin has shown he's a much better persuader than admiral Jim staff read us. So I'm highly encouraged by this. I think it's been a wake-up call for Europe. And by the way, watch Sweden and Finland. If you woke up and Stockholm and Helsinki and you're outside the NATO alliance, I think this is the week when you start demanding a NATO membership card out of your government and boy, that's got to be part of Vladimir Putin's worst nightmare.

We're not going to open up our borders. Everyone that has changed recently since the syrian refugee crisis. Denmark doesn't have a minimum wage. Sweden has full school choice. Sweden also i think handled the chief virus and the chinese corona virus. Better than any other country that i can think of. Refusing the lockdown trusting their citizens to make good choices. And let's say rejecting the lockdowns in more ways than what but still. The american left wants to talk about sweden and denmark. Did you know breaking today.

And as the world's lydia mana leader reports many cypriots don't have high hopes for this round of talks either by the time. Epic barman was born in the late seventies. Cyprus was already divided. Bormann grew up in the north with other turkish cypriots at school. Her teachers and textbooks taught her that greek-cypriots were bad and tall. They were the others at home. Her parents would tell her stories about what things were like. Before when greek and turkish cypriots were living in the same neighborhoods. She says their stories were full of pain. But also an astrologer you hear from your parents many stories. You know some glitz memories with the greek-cypriot some bad memories with the greek-cypriots bormann's parents grew up in the fifties when cyprus was a british colony cypress ruled by britain for nearly eighty years but overwhelmingly greek in population hits the headlines again. In the fifty s greek-cypriot nationalists.

She pins much of the blame on president zone auto who has long denied the seriousness of the pandemic and called for the economy to remain open. Despite the risk to many people's lives and in particular. The lives of brazil's poor coaching g kanye. She says if we look at the majority of essential in informal workers in brazil the majority are black. But they haven't been prioritized in the national vaccination plan so the choices of who we prioritize to vaccinate. I says a lot about bolsonaro policies of death. It says a lot about the bodies that we're going to let die. As of late march white brazilians had received two times as many vaccinations as black brazilians for the world. I'm michael fox including opus brazil. On sunday a fire broke out in a hospital ward for covid patients in baghdad. A horrific event in the midst of the pandemic eighty two people were killed more than one hundred were injured. The fire reportedly started when an oxygen tank exploded. At least twenty. Eight of the victims were covid. Patients taken offense layers to save them from a fire. Iraq's prime minister mustafa al kadhimi called the fire. A case of negligence iraq healthcare system has been severely impacted by the pandemic. it's also been under significant duress for decades due to sanctions war and neglect marsin Is a post doc fellow at the brookings institute and joins us today from baghdad. What are the past two days. Been like marsin delay discharged. Everyone's been both very angry and very sad. I think the most similar recent experience that we've seen in the regions beirut bombing in august in which people witnessed such tragedy that there seems to be no sufficient anger knows sufficient sadness properly. Can it seems like a metaphor for everything wrong. That's been happening. In iraq just compounded crises all was hitting the most vulnerable the mood in the city today given all this background. Can you just describe what the city feels like today. Just to give you an idea of how the Crises everytime one happens just hits harder because we're in the middle of this vaccination campaign. That's not going very successfully because people don't have trust in the state and so it is just came at the worst time and that's why i think it was such awful tragedy in. Why keeps resonating with people here so iraq's healthcare system after decades of neglect marsin. Do you have faith that the iraqi government can pit after all this neglect and just fix the system. So such tragedies don't occur again. I think in the way cassette tragedies they cry and impetus for change One of the ways in which they're ocoee government may be pressured into doing so is by simply by public anger in public rage. We saw twenty nineteen that public dissatisfaction amounted to some change in the government. You know we had a change in prime minister. But if i think that's something that the political elite will you know do of their own volition independently than i. My faith is a tendon. How would you say wars and sanctions. That iraq is experienced in the last few decades. How those work to exacerbate the situation directly as you can imagine. I mean cycles of violence. Make it so that even advancements if there were any in healthcare equipment or building institutions would always be hindered by cycles of violence that would continuously erupt in that would make be attacks on infrastructure likely but it also would make the situation difficult for doctors to want to stay in the country and contribute to a brain drain but indirectly one of the things up as less often discussed is particularly the sanctions era in its impact on iraqi education the decline of the education system. It's also the training has been severely lacking there too. And that can all be traced back to decline of education neurotic over the last thirty forty years frontally more soon. Is there any expectation or demand in baghdad that the us should be doing more to support iraq's healthcare system the conversation around the us's role in her has been diminishing over the years. I think iraqis now more look to their government in terms of these are your failures. Which is what we need from you it looking at the us perhaps retrospectively in discussions of what happened in two thousand three but not in the moment not in reaction to this marsin osha. Marie as opposed to fellow at the brookings institute joins us today from baghdad. Thank you for bringing us up to speed on this. Thank you for having me. Iran's government is hard to penetrate but thanks to a leaked recording. we're getting a rare glimpse into the inner workings of iran's leadership. Iran's foreign minister mohammad javad zarif represents the islamic republic on the world stage and in a three hour conversation zarif. He can be heard complaining how he has zero influence over. Iran's foreign policy and that iran's revolutionary guard corps calls the shots and ignores government. we asked story russia's easy at new york university to talk about this. He recently published a book called shadow. Commander sulejmani us and iran global ambition. I interestingly arosh. The iranian foreign minister did focus some of his comments on qassem soleimani. The revolutionary guard leaders asked by the us in january twenty twenty. What did he say about sola money. It basically talks about how what he calls the. That's sort of divorced. He uses in his clear that he's referencing to see and particularly to soleil money himself. He basically says that they run everything in fact not just foreign policy but they effectively set even the domestic policies in iran and the dirt in charge and the priority is always with them and that e on crucial matters of foreign policy not only that he was a member of the national security council. Who is the country's top diplomat. Not only he doesn't have a role he is not even informed. So i gather you've listened to the entire three hours of this recording. This was an interview with an economist and reportedly and was part of an oral history project. What was the big takeaway from this conversation. Does it reshape how we think about. Iran's inner workings of government the biggest takeaway is that it shows the extent to which the c. awesome soy money and the military leadership in iran really ruled the roost and the degree to which the vast degree to which there is play. Second fiddle to them. Now we knew this on the basics of it but it confirms to us the vast and sheer extent to which it exists and very is happy and ready to go on tape about it because after all he went on tape. It wasn't private conversation. And then second thing. I would say that any iran the interests of those who want better ties with divest and those one better ties with russia and china are seen as upholstery charter to the degree that comes an openly claims that russia actively sabotage the nuclear talks because he wanted iran that is too reliant on russia itself and has voiced and vent as far as colluding with awesome story. See to disrupt the process of reconciliation between iran and west so this league recording comes as nuclear talks are going on in vienna. Another round to see if the deal can be restarted. Do think czarist comments might affect the talks in some way definitely affect them on a number of right now. He's a diplomat. He should know how to turn things around if he wants to. In the negotiation room and there have been many positive soundings as you know about the state of the talks. Iran and the united states have said that they want the same thing which is a return to date on the announce. They don't agree about how to get there and they don't agree about what to do from there but they do agree about getting there does seem to be enough grounds for them to reach a deal and i think that's still very much a possibility if i stayed one step. If iran and by random honey who caused the final shot or we'll do this historian rush. Azizi recently published shadow commander sulejmani. Us iran global ambition. He's been speaking with us about leaked comments from iran's foreign minister that gives us a rare closer look at the workings of iran's leadership. Arosh thank you very much for your time today. Thank you so much. Thank you very much over the past few months. We've heard a lot about the many families and teenagers traveling to the. Us mexico border. We hear less about the men crossing adult men alone. They still represent the majority of people. Crossing the border reporter on either steen visited a migrant shelter in mexico where men rest and prepare before crossing the desert and that dangerous final stretch to the border every day before lunch at the shelter. There is a prayer by the new thirty men. Stand in line with plastic bowls and spoons. This migrant shelter is about a ten minute drive from the arizona border in the mexican town of salita.

"But it still there they're still potential danger and it's a result of a reflection of a foreign policy of interventionism which we find is strongly endorse by Democrats and Republicans, and yet there are some people in this country who? Still believe that the best approach would be a nonintervention foreign policy and trading and talking with people and not pretending that we are the authorities and the sovereignty of other nations means nothing and that we can willy nilly go and decide who's oil it is and what will happen and then yellen scream that were only doing this and self defense like I think even in this incident, they shot i. Shot, I after we're trying to push through their checkpoints. So anyway, this is. This is a problem that's been around A. If you WANNA find that who really started was Obama but his has been endorsed by. Hawkish. Republicans and it's been there and it remains a danger. So when we talk about removing troops, it doesn't really happen. You know we always encourage our side to remove troops and move around. But most time there's a tactical moves and then they are expressed is we're really changing policy but the policy remains a change and tactical changes in positioning troops is not the answer to our problems. You're stepping back to what the origin of this is. So we get the sort of the bigger context. You Know Hillary Obama in a guy called Biden we've heard of him right this is their policy right after Hilary had her wonderful success liberating Libya and turning it into the Switzerland of Africa right remember that right after that wonderful victory she had another. Idea she decided to an entry Senator Paul talked about this. Once in a in a hearing she decided it would be a wonderful idea to take all those weapons from the from the al Qaeda rebels in Libya and ship them off to Al. Qaeda. In Syria to overthrow the Syrian government because the Libya thing went so well right. So this is Hillary's foreign policy. Under both Obama and Biden to overthrow to armed jihadist to overthrow the government. It wasn't successful. Syria. Ask for Russia's help which which forestalled in Isis. al-Qaeda victory but unfortunately, trump has maintained the same policy. He just sprinkle a little bit more flavor different flavoring on it with Obama and Hillary it was it was for the people. For trump is, hey, we want your oil we're gonNA take it but the policy remains the same and that's what's really disgusting and sick about the whole thing. But this particular skirmish just a little bit of time line. It happened yesterday in Syria around Hasakeh the US approached the Syrian government checkpoint The Syrian government says you can't come in because they legitimately view the US as a foreign fire. You know it's not there legally there's no, there's no question about it. So denied entry. The US, started shooting at their legs. The Syrians returned fire. So the US called in helicopter strike which destroyed the outpost and killed one of the Syrian government soldiers. So after that dozens of locals came and they went to the checkpoint and they said, you know we'll protected. So my question I looked a lot of the pictures of their locals coming in what do you think these locals think about Americans in their country now do you think they would kill them at any second? So this is also trump putting soldiers in literally in harm's way for no.

Imagine I would certainly never forget it the time at the time when when I was Taking citizenship and my name is pronounced Nick Certificate of citizenship is a message from Canada to all of around the war until they're fleeing war and persecution and coming here to build a life for themselves that you are welcome your home.

We will get to the chocolate in a moment. You use the word magical to describe that ceremony.

I'm not sure I'm not sure weighing lastingly that you attended but I really recommend that everyone is getting go and walk. How much pride in? The you're absolutely right.

I knew they don't tell you that you don't belong. They don't tell you that there's anything that you can't do because you are part of this amazing traffic since moments. I mean when they arrive in Canada There was no restriction for us to anything that we wanted. The only thing that we could do is couldn't vote in the elections right until he became Canadians that as permanent residents in this country we had we had the same rights like anyone else may think the right of mobility and freedom Was An was incredible and has really shaped our success story. That has come to this point. One of the neat things about the ceremony. I is what happens to yourself but also the people who are around you. What did you notice about the other people who were also being sworn in as Canadian citizens there were so many people actually around me That they you have been in Canada and learning about this country and the most prized that they had been there is where for to see their kids growing up in a safer and in a better country. That has the Portuguese for everyone. Support all of these Kids and and futures has been putting monster before them like one of the people who are sitting beside me. And I'm not sure if you have seen some of the video there was someone who signed me with his his wife.

Fat is that the most pry that we've seen is is that this country is it is one of the greatest nations and I think it's the second largest country in the world so there is place for everyone to create their own. The putsch in just briefly you for people who don't know the story. How did you end up? Antiquarian the community in two thousand fifteen after the picture of off The Kid Island Trinity. who washed up on the ticket shows state with shocked and They have fundraising Hannity comedy. That they don't know they have raised enough money to bring the family of the same size of my family.

I showed up in Toronto in two thousand fifteen knowing nothing. That's where I will be and they told me that it's in Nova Scotia. I arrived in Nova Scotia pushing nothing and then I knew that this this is amazing.

What has kept you there in the community? It's part of giving back expired of being grateful and it's That I enjoy every time I walk on Main Street when when I know I had to be timing to five thousand people and that's the size of the town in that my family feels safe.

So you know being in the business for that long can't given my dad at the ability to transform His business ideas to fit any community we go to and when we came to Canada we found that we really need to spread this happiness that we wrote here to our community members helpful to the nation and if you remember there was an interview we have done at the airport in two thousand sixteen when my family arrived me and we told we told that interview we will build a chocolate factory in fifteen years. Maybe because you know we arrived here we only with our talents and skills. We didn't know how long it would take us. And we started making chocolate in two months in the kitchen We moved down to other other to now. We have a size combination. Fifty five employees home is such a tricky thing. And I'm sure that where you are feels like home but you also so left home as well and in that. What do you miss about your home in Syria?

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro. Audie cornish. The Pentagon early this morning announced US forces were beginning their withdrawal from Syria. That's all a spokesman would say out of concern for what he called operational security. President Trump took many people including his own military leaders by surprise last month when he ordered the withdrawal. He tweeted that had been defeated and the US would be getting out now since then others in the administration have said, it could be months, or when ISIS is defeated. So. Yes, mixed messages with real reprecussions in the region. We're going to hear from one of the Kurdish allies of the US who could be endanger troops leave. But first we're going to bring an NPR Pentagon. Correspondent Tom Bowman here with me in Washington either, Tom and NPR's Ruth Sherlock. She's speaking to us from Beirut. Hey there Ruth. Hello. So Tom, let's start with you. Because the president's announcement needless to say caused confusion, right? The resignation of the Defense Secretary. Was there a policy or strategy behind that? We know it all seems very knee jerk. And I'm told it's continues to cause confusion in the White House. And also at the Pentagon. I'm told the president wanted all US troops out within a month. The military said we can't do it that quickly and also ISIS has not been defeated. Even the president core said they have been defeated. Now. The order to leave now has changed their estimates. It will take at least several months to defeat the remainder of ISIS. So that's where we are now on the ground with does that mean, we've been told right that this is the beginning of the withdrawal. Right. The military. Put out a statement today saying they're beginning what they call eight deliberate withdrawal from Syria. Colonel Sean Ryan, a spokesman said he would not talk about timelines or locations troop movements. But there's a report from the Syrian observatory for human rights monitoring group based in London their people on the ground in Syria say they saw ten American vehicles heading out of Syria to Iraq, and they estimated about one hundred and fifty US forces leading that's out of two thousand US troops in Syria. But. One military officer. I spoke with said, hey, this is cosmetic the bulk of the US troops will remain to defeat ISIS. And again, you're looking at perhaps several months all right Ruth. So you and Tom have been to the part of Syria where US troops have been fighting. Isis. Can you give us the lay the land? What is the situation at this point? Well, in some areas are still has territory and the fight is ongoing against them. And then the other areas that the Kurds have managed to take control of you know, there's so much destruction. Their entire cities and towns destroyed that need rebuilding many, thousands of people who've been displaced from their homes and are still living in camps, and these Kurdish allies who have lost thousands of people fighting alongside the US against ISIS. They're now worried that Turkey is going to attack them as it's done in other areas in attack. He sees them as terrorists because there are aligned to Kurdish militants that fight. The Turkish government secretary of state Mike Pompeo has been in the Middle East this week trying to reassure allies here. He. Talked about the Kurds and the threats that takes us president Reggie up tight or do I made against them. These folks that have fought with us. And it's important that we do everything we can to ensure that does folks that bought with us are protected and aired wanna has made commitments he understands that. I think he uses the language he talks about he has no beef with the Kurds. We wanna make sure that that's the case. And I'm confident that as a Basset Jeffries and others travel through the region in the days ahead. I'm we'll make real progress on. Okay. So earlier today, I ran that by a Representative from one of the Syrian Kurdish groups the Syrian democratic council. Her name is synonymous Hamad. She spoke to us on a pretty rough line from Dubai. She told us that they are very worried about Turkey. But first, let's listen to reaction to that pledge from secretary Pompeo. This is really good the newest to about it. But still we even in need to know, how could the u s Turkey not to attack our people, and how could we know about the mechanism? Of doing all these things to guarantee the safety of the allies of the United States, which is the. But is there confusion, are you hearing the same thing on the ground that you're hearing say from Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state or what you're hearing out in the news from the US president. Heating something. Something different. Now, they're putting we are not going to throw a as soon as possible we are going to grow very slowly guaranteed the safety of the Kurdish people on the allies or people is what are you asking the Trump administration to do specifically asking them to include us in the political process in Geneva talks, and this is regarding the peace negotiations with Syria. Yes. And we also be included in the committees. Would she been established for on the I'm to protect us from the Turkish just top Turkish from a tacky Elision or to create an you call slick post in the area, you mentioned wanting to be a part of the conversation about the constitution in Syria after the war is the solution for you to be back fully under the? Government of Syria. Have you given up on trying to maintain autonomy? We, you know, from the beginning, we flaming food from Syria or dividing, Syria. We want to have a new TV for all the Syrian people are democratic system. Is there a scenario where you can count on Syria to protect you from Turkey. You mean? You mean? Yes. Yes. We ask about that. We would like to have a such dialogue. If they accept based on the news TV a new democratic see as they wanted to have like them mentality before two thousand eleven again, that's Muhammed from the Syrian democratic council. That's a US ally. And she's saying that the Kurds are trying to make a deal with Syrian President, Bashar Al Assad. This is a leader that has been called the butcher of Damascus. The US has asked him to step down the US has attacked his regime with missile strikes, so Ruth are. We seeing a realignment of royalties here one that essentially gives Assad the hand, this is complicated because the cud stone immediately want to jump into bed with the Syrian government. You know, they were historically marginalized as ethnicity in Syria, and there are thousands of people living in these areas that actually wanted by the Syrian government. But I think they realized that if the US leaves they'll be exposed, and they do need to strike a deal with some power to would off the Turkish offensive and the Syrian regime is winning this war in Syria. It's retaken. Much of Syrian territory, and it's doing so with the help of Russia and Iran, Tom where does this head next in the Pentagon in Washington? The Pentagon will carry out the order from President Trump to to leave. And again, it will take a few months. It looks like in Capitol Hill, the incoming chairman of the Armed Services Committee democrat Adam Smith is expected to hold hearings in the coming weeks on Syria because again already this is all very confused. We don't know the way ahead. He's going to try to get to the bottom of it. Here's another thing. The Pentagon has long said it will train a local security force of some thirty to forty thousand to help a troll after the US leaves. We don't know if that'll still happen. And it may be that the Syrian regime will take over this area. That's NPR's. Tom Bowman Tom. Thank you. You're welcome. And NPR's route Sherlock speaking to us from Beirut route. Thank you. Thank you. Tomorrow on weekend edition in Nicaragua. News organizations that have criticised President Daniel Ortega are under attack. Journalists have been detained officers have been ransacked and equipment confiscated. One outlet confidence.

Chemical agents. So today the nations of Britain, France and the United States of America have Marshall their righteous power against Babur ISM and brutality. President Trump announcing the United States has begun military action in Syria along with France and Britain. And now we are getting our first reports of loud explosions lighting up the skies over the Syrian capital, Damascus along with heavy smoke as this announcement was being made embar bar Syrian sources are saying that the strike has hit Barzan area, just five miles out of downtown, Damascus. And that the capital is shaking. That's literally what they told me. They're telling me that ten missile hit a Syrian research center. Basically government military research center in bars. And they're also telling me that we're seeing hearing about strikes in hogs, which is another area where there are a lot of government military assets. So not a surprise in terms of where these missiles. Hitting, but I think very much a shock to a lot of Syrians to the capital really feel the shake of this strike. There were several loud explosions heard in Damascus smoke has been seen rising over the Syrian capital.

Tonight, France, the United Kingdom and the United States took decisive action distract the Syrian chemical weapons infrastructure, clearly the Assad regime did not get the message last year.

Together, we have sent a clear message to Assad and his murderous tenants that they should not perpetrate another chemical weapons attack for which they will be held accountable at nine PM eastern standard time French British and US forces struck targets in Syria in support of President Trump's objective to deter the future use of chemical weapons. The targets that were struck and destroyed were specifically associated with the Syrian regimes chemical weapons program we also selected targets that would minimize the risk to innocent civilians last year, we conducted a unilateral strike on a single site this evening, we conducted strikes with to allies on multiple sites that will result in the long term. Degradation Assyrians capability to research develop an employee chemical and biological weapons. Important infrastructure was destroyed which will result in a setback for the Sharon regime to strike was not only a strong message to the regime that their actions were inexcusable, but it also inflicted maximum damage without unnecessary risk to innocent civilians. There have been a number of eyewitness reports of explosions lighting up the night sky in Damascus some reports that the Syrians were able to shoot off some surface to air missiles to take down some of what the US and its allies fired their way in a statement from President Assad that comes via Twitter the Syrian presidency. Tweets. Good souls will never be humiliated after the air strikes a targeted strike to deters. President Trump said tonight bus route Assad from using chemical weapons again Syrian state media confirmed that the scientific. Research center in bars north of Damascus was targeted in the attack a number of rockets targeting warehouses belonging to the Syrian army and homes were intercepted. According to the Syrian government. The Defense Secretary did mention that a number of surface to air missiles were shot off by the Syrians. The Syrians claimed to have intercepted some of what the US France and Britain through at Syria. But there has been no confirmation of what those retaliatory strikes may have done. The Syrians are now claiming they struck down thirteen rockets the Syrian people a message on Syrian state television said a moment ago are defiant and courageous the Americans have been defeated and in growing scroll on Syrian television describes a cowardly terrorist attack only done for America to save face ABC's. Louis Martinez is with us from the Pentagon now and. Louis the targets that the Pentagon selected along with France and Britain for this military operation were very specific chemical weapons storage facilities. That's right. Aaron there were these three facilities to Damascus Syria one in western homes. They have to do with the production of chemical weapons particular one was a chemical storage area. And the third was a research and development facility. I you heard general Dunford say that there were additional sites that could have been targeted, but they chose these three particularly because they wanted to minimize the chance of civilian casualties. But what you're hearing from secretary Mattis right now is that this is a one shot deal right now. But the message is intended to be clear to Syria that they should not be using chemical weapons in the future. And I think that the the idea here is that if they catch win that Syria is doing that aren't they may target these additional facilities. And I think that's the threat. That's being pushed on them right now. Loud explosions.
