President Trump presides over a reshaping of Middle East power dynamic
"The White House was trying to resolve the Israeli Palestinian conflict with the quote deal of the century, but the Palestinians were not among those signing the so called Abraham Accords today. It was the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates in Bahrain, agreeing to open diplomatic and economic ties with Israel. President Trump's staged an elaborate ceremony to mark the occasion were here this afternoon to change the course of history. After decades of division and conflict, we marked the dawn of a new Middle East. Neither Bahrain nor the United Arab Emirates were at war with Israel. They had been working quietly together to counter Iran. Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, thanked the the US US president, president, You You have have unequivocally unequivocally stood stood by by Israel Israel side. side. You You have have boldly boldly confronted confronted the the tyrants tyrants of of Tehran. Tehran. You've proposed a realistic vision for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, Palestinian see the deal's as a betrayal by their Arab allies and an effort by the Trump administration to undermine the Arab peace initiative. That plan calls for normalization with Israel after the Israeli Palestinian conflict is resolved. The Trump Administration took a different approach, says Aaron David Miller of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. They reserved all the honey for Israel in the key Arab states and all the vinegar for the Palestinians. The idea is that as Arab states normalize ties with Israel and get big arms deals with the U. S. They will put pressure on the Palestinians to make peace with Israel on terms more favourable to Netanyahu. Miller says It's known as the outside in approach, and he recalls numerous conversations about this with Trump's son in law and advisor Jared Kushner. It was just easier for them. It was more attractive for them. It was much more in keeping with the pro Israeli sensibilities both for political reasons, and in the case of Mr Questioner and others emotionally To align themselves with the eyes outside in approach. It's starting to pay off. But the Trump administration is still short of its ultimate prize, Miller says. Getting Saudi Arabia on board. My only concern is that they have hyped and Who plotted to the point where That may not yet be wanted. But if other Arab states join the party, particularly the Saudis, then I think you've got something that will be much more enduring. The Arab foreign minister say they're not turning their backs on Palestinians and Moradi Abdullah bin Zayed, speaking through an interpreter reminded Netanyahu that he agreed to suspend plans to annex parts of the Israeli occupied West Bank. You can look after dark cell. Um thank you for choosing peace and for halting the annexation off Palestinian territories at position that reinforces our shared will To achieve a better future for generations to come. In this time of a pandemic. The men didn't wear masks as they signed their deals with Israel. They did, however, avoid a public handshake. And while the ceremony was taking place at the White House, Palestinian militants in Gaza fired two rockets into southern Israel.
Arian Moayed On How Fear Never Leaves, And Why You Should Just Keep Going
"I believe in curiosity I just I. Just think that we can't do anything without it early and just asking people obey the is basically a version of empathy. Enemy. Empathizing with WHO people are and what they do over were you the curious kid like is this something that's been part of your life or somebody who cultivated? Yeah. I mean. I think the circumstances of my life you know being born in Iran and then moving here as young immigrants in the eighties where Iran was like enemy enemy number one if you recall. And like Iran Russia which kind of back there again I kind of felt that like you know I was so curious about this world is culture and I think that's kind of where it started also you know It's crazy. It was crazy. My parents don't speak any the my spirit's English is not great. The they came here when they were forty and fifty. The I mean it's not like they. You know I'm thirty seven. So like imagining myself in three years time taking all of an IV and Chrissy and saying, Hey, well, going to move to China and we're GONNA make this. We're going to make life better in China as a show I mean that's All you can be as curious I. Guess. Yeah. I guess. So how so how old were you when you actually let on? Well, we laughed Iran you know it's hard to tell because at time here was crazy there was a war happening and I think a lot of you especially you a bit younger don't don't really remember that whole window of of our history and our relationship with Sir Yeah, the Middle East Yeah. Yeah it's complicated. It's long and it's GonNa either bore fascinate all of you guys. But the the the the the truth is we you know it's it's. It's it's hard to talk about because there's so many levels to like how crazy it is. One is my mom was married to my dad at the age of thirteen. My mom was thirteen Wendo arranged marriage. My mom is pretty standard. You know it was on the outs in that time period. Yeah. But my parent, my mom's mom was a single mom she was the youngest you know she couldn't make she couldn't make it happen, and so she had to like you know she had to like give I, guess her her daughter La youngest daughter away and so then my dad, my dad's they were more religious than my mom's side was and so. They got arranged. My mom had her first kid at fifteen years old her second kid at sixteen and Arthur kid eighteen, and then had me when she was thirty five. So my siblings are seventeen eighteen in. I'm sorry. Yes. Some teen eighteen basically twenty years than me. So, and then and then the revolution hit seventy nine. And then a war hit right after that because Saddam invaded with you know and then got the support of the United States. You know because we of the Iranian situation and then we were in a war. And so everyone was closed inside as is bombings happening all over Tehran all over the border, and so we were indoors and and you know when when people get doors and there's a lot of fear in the air of uncertainty, you procreate you know and so the baby boom in Iran happened at that moment in seventy nine to eighty five, where like sixty percent of Iranian. Population right now in Iran is under the age of forty. Fascinating you walk down the street and everyone's young. So anyway and then and then. CRAZILY my brother. My oldest brother was sixteen. When he graduated high school in Iran, his name is Amir And then he went to A. He got accepted to a school in. CHICAGO. Right. When he was sixteen. So sixteen twentyish he's in Chicago, ish issue like something like that, and then the revolution hit. And then my brother was like should I come back and. My parents were like you're never coming back here will come to you. And then in that time period. My. Youngest my brother that's closest to me who seventeen his name is. Oh, mead omen was drafted in the Iran Iraq war. And fought three years in that war. With a couple of my cousins who are who are who have passed away who died in that war one of them, which data that were, and then my brother was in war my sister was in the middle there. I was just born. We got the F out of town and we went we went as far as my dad's connections and money and. You know and you know connections could could could take you in that was Dubai. We've got to Dubai who lived in the Arab Emirates and we were there for off and on for about five years and then and then we and then you know a long period of time you know no one heard it from my brother was fight in the war. And trying to and trying to try to like move three pieces ahead while also like making sure the pieces back here it's a chess game you know and and dangerous one. And then my dad then. We had were that Amigos live. We went back to Iran. Might he got back? He was no nine, hundred twenty you know fought three years in a war in a city called Oh mead his name is omitted, which means hope and wherever like was slaughtered murdered and died because it was a brutal war brutal war and he he's a twenty year old brainwashed you know. PTSD. Kid. And in that time period as we're figuring out to go back to Dubai and come back, my sister falls in love. Falls in love with the guy and and then that made things tricky and then, and then we all laughed and my sister stay. So I- sister got the states in two thousand and three we left in eighty five. So An and then we came to the states and again you know the analogy that the Chinese like us like you and me and you taking your family and your son going to China or whatever language that you don't know our culture, the No, and you're like, this is the best news for us. Now you know you're GonNa, you're not going to be easy and so in all of that, you just get you know a a sense of like the world in a very kind of complicated way. A very young age and and not only do they not speak the language they don't know what? Christmases. They don't know what Hanukkah is. They don't have any idea why people are going to church all the time. They have no clue why the cars are this way they don't know why the food is patching. There's nothing that is familiar. There's nothing that you can empathize with as as an Iranian living in the states and being like I know this thing and so in all that you are learning rapidly. You know a very drastic way and so that curiosity might have had something to do with it. I'm not really sure
As World Powers Push To Implement Iran Nuclear Deal - Who Needs America?
"At the United Nations. The Trump administration wanted support to restore economic sanctions on Iran. European nations as the U. N. Security Council were having none of it. It was a humiliating defeat for Washington. Robert Malley is here to help us make sense of this rift. He's a former White House negotiator for the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and the current president of the International Crisis Group in Brussels. Robert. Why are European nations rejecting Washington's request for more sanctions? Well, I think it's going to take a step back and and try to look at what the Trump administration was trying to do. President withdrew from disagreement some time ago and value to the agreement by reimposing unilateral U. S sanctions even though Iran at the time had been living up to the deal. That is not just me saying it. The U. S. Was saying it itself. The nuclear inspectors were saying it as well. So the US withdraws from the deal and then comes back a year or two later and says. We now want invoke a provision of this deal that we have withdrawn from him that we have violated in order to force other countries. The U. N system as a whole to reimpose collective sanctions on Iran and European countries have been saying for some time. Something that says you do not have the ability to bring back these sanctions since you walked away from the deal under which these sanctions were going to be re important, but at the same time Iran is violating the terms of the 2015 around nuclear deal. So why not hold him to it? I mean, the European countries are trying have invoked a dispute resolution mechanism in the deal itself to try to work out this problem with the rains. That's the way to tell is supposed to work. Iran into European nations and others. Russia and China are supposed to sit down, which they have done episodic in covert. 19 has since gotten in the way, so they still keep the calibrating the response. But it just doesn't compute for Europeans and they told the U. S. For a long time. Let's try to work together to try to resolve this rather than you going your own way and violating the deal withdrawn from the deal. And then, as I said, invoking A provision of the deal to try to reimpose sanctions. But why can't the remaining countries who are in the deal with Iran? Why can't they snap back the sanctions? They could. Of course, we could send back the sanctions. They certainly would be in their right to snap back the sanctions. They just don't see the logic to snapping back sanctions against the country that had been faithfully respecting the provisions of the deal until the U. S withdrew. From their view is the best way to get back into compliance is for the U. S. Two. Restore its sanctions relief and for Iran to come back into compliance with the deal, But they're hard to imagine that happening under the trump. Well, yeah, it's not. So where does that leave? The European countries were still part of the deal? What's the strategy? It is them ism in a waiting game. They want to see. You know the vote that happened of Security Council was one vote. The important one is the one that's gonna happen in the U. S on November 3rd and they want they're waiting to see as so many whether vice President Joe Biden is elected or President. Trump has re elected vice president Biden is elected he has committed To returning to the in which case if Iran returns into compliance, we're back to no more or less where we were before, and if they don't then the Europeans might well consider reimposing sanctions. If President Trump is elected. I think their view is the secure. The nuclear deal is buried. And at that point, let's turn the page and see where we go. Just happened to you and Was an exercise to buy time by the Europeans and others. Let's see what happened in November and see whether the nuclear deal can live to fight another day in job after General 20. Okay, let's turn to Russia and China Since the nuclear deal was signed in 2015, Russia and China have kind of changed their behavior toward Iran, and they're reportedly now interested in resuming arms sales to Tehran. How do you see their change of heart towards their own? Not that it's really change of heart. I think they've always wanted to maintain strong relations with the RAF, although they were concerned by the prospect of Iran developing a nuclear weapon, I've suspected you might see some arm cells to Iran occurring and the conventional weapons in balance between Iran and neighbors is such a lot would have to do a lot to make up. I think this is not necessarily going to be a game changer. I don't expect that we're going to see a major arms purchase from Iran's simply because they are suffering from huge economic problems of their own. What could this diplomatic standoff mean for the future of the Security Council? You know, it's not good for the Security Council security because we really are in analysis in Wonderland world where the U. S is going to say, 30 days from now, the U. S will say sanctions back the rest of the council and the rest of the world will say no, That's not the case And so you'll live into with two parallel universes. That's not good, but let's also put it in perspective. It's not the first time the Security Council has gone through a crisis. Just think back to the Iraq war, so there have been other cases. Where the council has got through huge divisions. I think there's two lessons to be drawn. We're going to see those crises and the Security Council will survive them. On the other hand, the Security Council is not that effective a body when the main powers that comprise it are not able to speak in one voice that's reflected in the Security Council, which is simply a mirror image of the state of global politics. Robert Malley is the former White House negotiator for the 2015 Iran

Can Pompeo nail the coffin closed on the Iran nuclear deal?
"Is formally notified the United Nations of its demand that all international sanctions against Iran be restored. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.

U.S. Seizes More Than 1 Million Barrels Of Iranian Petroleum From Tankers
"The U. S. Has seized more than a 1,000,000 barrels of Iranian fuel aboard four tankers that we're heading to Venezuela. The Justice Department called it the largest ever seizure of fuel shipments from Iran and said it was because the tankers were in violation of sanctions. The move is part of the Trump administration's campaign of maximum pressure on Iran. NPR's Jackie Northam has been following the story and joins us now. Hi, Jackie. Hi, Sarah. So what can you tell us about what happened with these ships? Right where the seizure of these for Greek own ships happened earlier this week, and the Justice Department says the order to seize and confiscate the cargo was issued by a U. S District court and that the US along with the assistance of foreign Partners confiscated the cargo on board and this was done by a ship to ship transfer of the fuel. You know, it's a little uncertain what type of fuel there talking about. It could be bunker fuel, which is used for heavy machinery, and I like Or just plain old gasoline. Either way, it was bound for Venezuela, and now it's believed to be bound for the U. S. And the Justice Department says the proceeds from its sale will go toward the fund for victims of state sponsored terrorism. And where those four tankers now are. They also on their way to the U. S. Well, it's unclear right now. The four tankers turned off their location. Transponder is more than three months ago, so we don't know where they are. At the moment. If the U. S has the ships they could be brought back here to the U. S and sold at auction. They could have been handed back to the Greek shipowner. We don't know. I talked to a couple of analyst today, including shipping analysts, and this action is really just seen as part of a broader effort by the Trump administration to put pressure on Iran by going after shipping companies. That are carrying Iranian fuel or oil, or even the insurance companies that they use and threatening to sanction them. If they deal with the Iranians, you know. For the past few years, the administration has been heavily sanctioning Iranian in Venezuelan, for that matter, companies and individuals and this is just a different route to apply pressure on the regime. And what is Iran's saying about this? Well. Iran's ambassador to Venezuela rejected the US justification for this seizure and confiscation as fake news, and he called it another lie and psychological warfare by US propaganda machine and said that the tanker's have nothing to do with Iran. The fact is, Iran really needs the money from its oil sales. They've been hit very hard by the Trump administration's maximum pressure campaign, which will sanction any country dealing with Iran. So any sales that it makes have to be kept quiet. And you know, even though this is a seizure of just over a 1,000,000 barrels, it's a shot by the US directly towards Tehran. And we're hearing about the seizure. Just today. After the U. S. Announced it had brokered an agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. They're going to establish full diplomatic relations. That new friendship is seen as being driven by their mutual dislike for Iran. So Iran maybe feeling more isolated. Now, Jackie is Iran expected to retaliate for the seizure of its ships. Battleground, has vowed to resist US attempts to isolated and could certainly see these events as a really challenge and feel it may need to stand up for itself using whatever is available for them to respond. You know it might try to seize vessels of its own if you be called just over a year ago, Iran seized a British oil tanker and it's 23 crew members in the Strait of Hormuz in retaliation for British forces detaining on Iranian tanker in Gibraltar also last year, is believed Iran was using Mine's to attack ships in the Persian Gulf and you know, the U. S says already In the last few days, Iranian forces boarded a ship trying to take the petroleum on board but wasn't successful.

What are the adversaries goals in election interference?
"The US Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Friday released a statement on election interference and CSC Director William Evans says that Russia China and Iran are all interested in various forms of interference. Briefly China dislikes president trump whom it regards as unpredictable and wants him so that he can't in Beijing's view, continue to damage Chinese interests Iran also dislikes the incumbent and sees the prospect of his reelection as likely to mean increased pressure on the Islamic republic and pressure that would be designed to bring about regime change in Tehran. Iran also has a more general interest in undermining US institutions. The statement says. Russia has been busy denigrating former vice president biden who Moscow sees is dangerously connected with Ukraine and with the Obama Administration's disapproval of Russia's armed slow motion re engorgement of that country he's also seen as part of an anti Russian establishment.

British Airways Announces Immediate Retirement of Boeing 747 Fleet
"Airways has just announced this morning a little bit in line with Qantas that effective, almost immediately They're going to be retiring. Their whole fleet of seven forty sevens is currently have thirty one still in operation, which be taken out of the fleet, now of course is because a few passenger numbers and less capacity needed because all of these airlines are very well. They kind of need to get to a point of being carbon neutral they they need. Need to be of good pr, so the older planes get out of the fleets much earlier, but I thought it was exactly that there's still four hundred sixteen flying around the world at the beginning of this month, and I love how many had been manufactured and fifteen, one, thousand, five, hundred, fifty eight from fifty years ago. So when you think one in three of those planes is still in active service is an extraordinary number, and when you think about the seven forty seven hundred. If we want to sort of get a little bit. Nostalgic, there's there's really no other airline air aircraft that that's come close me yesterday. Three Eighty you know came out as as a full length, double decker but when you think about the the golden age of flying, we can go back and look at seven Oh sevens. What those meant to Pan and and and Flying Clippers and concord, but there is something about the seven forty seven as well it was, it was quite democratic to with an airliner of charter charter brands as as much is of course. Some of the world's leading carriers got you around the world. Yes back in the fifties began when the airlines began to say the US. Airlines began to sites by. Can you build us a plane? Maybe that's two and a half times bigger than anything else we currently have. They came up with the Boeing. It was tested in the late sixties. It went into service in nineteen seventy, but there's something about that shape. The court, every kid's imagination you. Remember being young and looking up at the sky and you'd see that, Silhouette. You could be the most useless plane-spotter in the world. You knew what you were saying. And there's something also just was glamorous about the notion that you could go up the spiral staircase and and up in another floor of a plane. And oddly we may have seen double deckers committed with the a three eighty. It doesn't have the glamorous. Double Decker bus. There was something about being in that little secret part at the top, it was almost like being on a private plane attached to a regular commercial flight that was that was glamour, and there was there was kind of sexiness about, and there's something side I mean depending on where we get. Over the coming months I do wonder if there's an opportunity 'cause we've seen Qantas have been looking at. Marketing sort of these these last flights on on on the seven forty seven, and of course they're still other carriers who still have them We'll see move. The Japanese are lens some years ago. They retire the for a lot for all of the same reasons. I mean for the fact that they are gas guzzlers. They don't have the most efficient engines that they they are. They are allowed. There is of course a new generation of a seven forty seven and it seems that the president of the United. States will be getting a few of them, but Do you think that this is all a bit knee-jerk or this is? This goes with the Times or do you think maybe be able? Look at this in a few months? Things improving or maybe we shouldn't have retarded them quite so quickly. Well as we've just said you, you just look how reliable they are. The the they have been evolving crashes in the past, but very rarely for technical reasons or design flaws to the plane and the. Great work is often many than there's. Versions, which is still being used in Kaga, but here Monaco. We've had some great stories. We flew on a seven four seven weeks in Andhra all the way from Tehran to Caracas via Damascus. With with Iran. We went on the emperor's plane. In Japan so the seven four seven has so many kind of extraordinary stores to is sad I think kind of going out service as you said still roughly four hundred. We'll be up

"Like we previewed. Yesterday the Harvey Weinstein Trial has begun in New York City. And part of the the reason this is so momentous is despite the eighty plus women who have come forward now publicly to accuse him of sexual misconduct. The disgraced movie mogul has denied any accusations nations of nonconsensual sex and these charges in New York had been the only criminal cases that prosecutors have been able to muster against him like this. Was it until yesterday. Good Good Morning. I'm here today. To announce the my office has charged Harvey Weinstein with sexually assaulting two women in Los Angeles County now he becomes comes in defending himself in two cities on opposite sides of the country may be senior investigative reporter. Aaron Katersky got the heads up before prosecutors in. La gave their press conference. Aaron and what are the charges here rape and sexual assault broadly bread Charges cover a two day span back. In February twenty thirteen on February Eighteenth Harvey Weinstein is alleged to have raped a woman after pushing his way into her hotel room in Los Angeles after after a Hollywood film festival the very next evening. He's alleged to have sexually assaulted a different woman in a different hotel in Beverly Hills. This woman only identified as Jane Doe to had agreed to a business meeting with Harvey Weinstein at this hotel. It's an incredible indictment in that it covers such a short short period of time. The way it's laid out by the La County District Attorney's Office Brad. Harvey Weinstein Rapes a woman. One evening and the very next evening is back at it with a second woman and that's just a month before Harvey Weinstein alleged to have raped a woman here in New York City part of the accusations that make up his criminal case in New York and all along Harvey Weinstein has said he is not guilty of any nonconsensual sex more than forty cases have been presented to my office for possible criminal filing during the past two years. So it's been two years right. Since people started very publicly telling the stories about Harvey Weinstein. And why do charges like this take so long to develop them. In some cases you need that much time for the victims to feel comfortable coming forward and for for the evidence to build in order to prove a charge as serious as rape or forcible sexual assault in L. A. County after after the mountain of allegations against Harvey Weinstein began in two thousand seventeen. The District Attorney's office opened a special task force to examine sex sex assault in Hollywood and the entertainment industry and these are the first charges to result from that because it's not like the La County was lacking for allegations nations against Harvey Weinstein. People come forward before the court papers mentioned allegations back in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven that prosecutors said they were at least familiar familiar with here. It took some time to get these victims to come forward to share their story for prosecutors to decide they were within the statute of limitations -tations and to have the evidence in all eight women came forward to report that they were sexually assaulted by the defendant in Los Angeles County. Three of those alleged crimes took place outside of the statute of limitations. And for that reason we have declined to file charges in those three cases now these prosecutors in La believe they have what they need to charge Harvey Weinstein based on the accusations of these two women and Brad. They say they're still still investigating the accusations of three other women your harvey no matter. What lies you tell yourself you did this back? In New York New York trial got underway. What did we learn from sort of day? One there as these charges are being prepared in Los Angeles Harvey Weinstein is on the opposite coast shuffling into court hunched over a walker. The kind with wheels on the front and tennis balls on the bottom. And the back shuffles into court sits down utters his name to introduce himself to the judge and then it really set off the tone for for this entire trial because has prosecutor said it was. Abominable that defense attorneys were speaking publicly. undoubtfully about certain witnesses who the jury is going to hear from and the defense vent shot back that it was equally abominable for prosecutors to refer to Harvey Weinstein as a Predator before. He's even been convicted. And the defense accused prosecutors accusers of wanting everybody to believe Weinstein's guilty before there's even a trial so the fireworks began before a single juror has even been seated near the fireworks there and we'll see more fireworks because as you've said it will be other women testifying in this case in New York. One of those women to speak to Harvey Weinstein's pass behavior is the woman who's accusing Harvey Weinstein. The charge charge for now in L. A.. Anchor time at all together. Thank you thank you brad.

"So that's the view from the Iranian capital over in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. There is a lot of anger toward the US as well does we do. Raqi parliament's angry at the killing of money unless soil voting to kick U. S. troops out of the country. We talked about how the Iraqi parliament voted to boot. US forces out of the country. Now that vote is not binding but it won't point yesterday. There was a letter going around. That seems suggests we are preparing to pull out. Our troops will be a huge deal yesterday. The trump administration said that letter was sent around by mistake that while we are repositioning troops and oh yeah pausing the fight against Isis. We are not leaving Iraq anytime anytime soon. Let's bring in. ABC's chief White House correspondent. Jonathan Karl he's at the West Wing right now. Jonathan can we just go back. Do we know the intelligence that set this in motion. The White House said said there were these imminent threats from Sola money. There were hundreds of American lives at stake. was that all for real. It's unclear the president himself gave an interview with rush limbaugh yesterday Where he was asked really point blank? Bye Bye bye. Limbaugh why. He ordered the attack And why he did it when he you did. And the president went on an answer. Well this should have been done for the last two fifteen to twenty years him in particular he was their real military leader. He's a terrorist. He was but what's interesting is nowhere in the interview to the President mentioned anything about an imminent attack and we had a shot at it and we took them out and we're a lot safer now because of it. Now that said we have also heard now from The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley. who was was asked about the intelligence? He said they can tell was compelling and in Brad he said this did it. The intelligence exactly say what when where no but he was planning coordinating and synchronizing significant combat operations against US military forces in the region and it was imminent. So that's the word from the chairman of the joint chiefs but we don't know what that is and Congress has been provided Only a classified description. I intelligence we've heard from Democrats saying that they didn't find it. Particularly compelling I've become increasingly alarmed about the strike a strike that was carried out with insufficient fishing transparency without consultation of Congress demands now at least Democrats are making in Congress that the administration should put out for the public the intelligence that was used to justify this attack no indication whether or not that's going to happen. So why is the president threatening around with war. Crimes lives will be lawfully. We'll behave inside the system. We always have and we always will George view that the president was getting in taking into the minded minded the president with how he like his attitude towards Iran because we played this clip yesterday where we're president trump tweeted about targeting Iran and cultural sites. Right George Stephanopoulos brings it up to Mike Pompeo you points out like that would be a war. Crime might compare says we're GONNA stay within the law but then president trump brings it up again on on Air Force One with reporters so clearly it. It seems like his instincts are at odds with some of his top advisors. No no question about it. Brad I mean the president was equally. Clear are actually more more explicit on Air Force. One talking to reporters telling reporters quote. They're allowed to kill our people. They're allowed to torture and maim our people and we're not allowed to touch their their cultural site. It doesn't work that way. And then there's the question of whether or not. US troops before out of out of Iraq and the president. Talking to those the you know the reporters on Air Force One said that he would not leave. US troops will not leave Iraq until Iraq pays for the military facilities if the US has built over the years. He says we are not leaving unless they pay us back. George we will charge them sanctions like they've never seen before so it's really quite a quite in a statement of the president suggesting that. US troops would either stay came in Iraq against the will of the Iraqi government or I believe in slapped intense you know sanctions against an American ally. You're trying not to get the whole Middle East mad at you saying we're going to stay here whether you like it or not. I started exactly a diplomatic mess right. Jonathan Karl thanks so much thanks.

"The last several days. This has been the five on American Airwaves number one. There will be dead. Americans dead civilian Americans. What is that? Where does it go because the Iranians won't stop? They do worry tonight. That's why Blumenthal said sleepless night. They can strike practically anywhere. Ten Ewing series of escalations. It's easy to see how these things spiral out of control like. You can see. See if people are freaked out and not just national security analysts in Washington right. I was walking my dog the other day and and guys that would usually be talking about the playoffs on the sidewalk. They were talking talking about the American decision to take out Qassem Soleimani in how Iran might retaliate Iran and its allies have sworn hush revenge against the US stat. Red Flag Raga Vengeance on fraud about the mosque and one of Iran's holiest cities for the first time in history so the stakes seem high. Here imagine the scene in Iran Sulejmani. Money was one of their most venerated. Figures will yesterday as what is left of. His body was transported back to Tehran. People gathered in some of the biggest demonstrations of mourning. You will ever see. We don't know what's going to happen next in the story but ABC's chief global affairs correspondent. Martha Raddatz is at Ground Zero for whatever it is. She is there in Tehran Ron. This morning and Martha. You actually went out into the streets yesterday during this gathering. Let me just tell me. What was it like Brad? There were literally millions of people bowl for the funeral of General Sulejmani. Oh across Tehran in the visual images if I can paint this for you. Millions President of people for this funeral standing outside lining the streets lining the bridges shoulder to shoulder. They were weeping. Genuine tears cooking look people. We talked to broke down crying when they started talking about General Sola money. These were young students who I have to think just months ago. in some ways may have been protesting something else here in Iran and who six months ago when we were here were criticizing their own leaders. It was all about American take heart remains sorry event saying they they wanted revenge. America should have a lot of Americans have they were heartsick over the loss of general. Sola money they are pointing finding out his fight against isis defeats noises and got proud of him. He's he'll and everywhere we have gone. There are images of General Sulejmani With the ayatollah tender photographs of him with young children. As soon as we arrived in the airport they were running videos about his life. You really feel the impact impact of of what has happened. We'll see I mean Martha than with all the anti-american sentiment with just the anger the emotion there in the streets. I just Kinda WanNa know like what's it like for you when you're talking to people like do you feel vulnerable in the streets of Tehran. Right now I have to say that that when we came same there was a moment of wondering what it would be like here but but frankly people were kind. They have generally been very nice they they they aim their fury. I would say at President Trump. What is your message to? Mr Trump messed us there were many many mentions of president trump. And what he did. The motion is everywhere. Obviously you're surrounded by people saying death to America. I never felt particularly particularly vulnerable about that. They are shouting at in in very general terms but I felt no threat at all when I think about the US. Martha there are certain scenarios where I would imagine Magin Americans telling the President Oh we have to declare war on this country because of what they did to us right but but there are other scenarios Martha where can imagine Americans would say. Ah That's not that doesn't quite rise to the level of declaring a war. We don't need a long national nightmare. Here where does the killing of Sola Mani rank to Iranians to to the Iranian regime. I mean how do Iranians think of this as an act of war I think generally yes I think. Certainly they viewed this as an active active war. Whether they want to war is something else entirely events must hatton and it is certain. What kind of revenge do you want anything? I definitely hear revenge. We have to take revenge for the blood of of Soleimani is what they will say. You are not afraid of war. Iranian people love apiece speed on love but when I asked about are you ready for a war. They'll say if that happens. We are ready but we are peaceful people but obviously officially Brad that the difficulty here is if Iran responded a big way it is very likely the. US will take action as well given. What president trump trump has said? And then you get in a stair. Step back and forth tit for tat and none of us has any idea how that would end. Saw Tirre's over what's seen as a national hero. Their anger was talk about revenge but also fear of what could still be to come Martha Raddatz on the streets of Tehran. Thank you so much. Thank you Brad..

However public opinion now are becoming very pessimistic stats US is upgrading to stick to its promises there is no toss. It seems that Iran is actually trying to invest on other partners, who are involved in those negotiations, like, European countries, Russia and China. The other partners should actually work hard and slow through their promise and do whatever they can. To actually lifted the sanctions, there are some American lawmakers as you may know, Dr Tari, who are talking about regime change, and even bombing your country. How are you feeling?

This was different during the Obama administration because Obama was very successful in creating this image of the US twenty to resolve all these issues. However now which administration, it has affected the way to look at the future. Dr Tari if you had a few minutes to sit down in a room with. Washington officials like Senator Tom cotton, or national security adviser John Bolton. What would you tell them? I would say that, if the idea is that you put pressure on ordinary Amiens to get them raise against their government. This is not going to work thirty years. We have gone through different phases of sanctions, though. This one is the most severe the most crippling one also I refer to some personal experiences. I know some students as well as friends who are suffering from cancer, and they cannot get the medicine they need due to sanctions. It's like a terrorism against wonderful Iranians and it's not going to have the outcome are looking for. Fussy me Tari is an assistant professor of American studies at the university of Tehran. She's been speaking with us from Tehran. Dr tari. Thank you very much for your thoughts. Thank you for having me for the past eleven days, British citizen.

"A mixed message to Tehran today on the world. I'm Marco werman threats and sanctions on the one hand willingness to talk on the other. Some rain say, Washington is sending them mixed messages for the Iranians, the United States is not so seer also why border patrol facilities where migrant children are held are often compared to iceboxes or dog kennels gives you an idea of how people feel when they're inside of them. They're either feel like they're being frozen to death or they're filling their being boxed into literal cages, plus an open air university in New York, where all the professors are immigrants who sacrificed their careers when they came here, and most of them have ever have the opportunity to teach their subject. Those stories and much more today here on the world. I'm Marco werman. This is the world. There's no question US policy in the middle. East is all over the news agenda today. Just take a scan of where in the world. You'll find top US officials national security adviser, John Bolton is in Israel White House. Senior adviser Jared Kushner is in Bahrain secretary state, Mike Pompeo was just in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in just a few days. President Trump himself will be at the g twenty summit in Japan where some key sidebar conversations are expected and everywhere. Everyone's focus is on Iran. Iranian? Officials had disparaging words today for the US after Trump announced more sanctions specifically on the Ayatollah himself. We reached out to Dr Zane, I've hus- Amee Tari at the university of Tehran to hear how all this looks to Iranians themselves. Well, the situation Syms very complicated because a rainy in saying that they have gone through this intensive negotiations for almost two years on their Hani for his nuclear deal for Iranian. It seems that the US should come back to the DC Pillay, and it side of the bargain because Iranians have been sticking to their side of the bargain. So if the US doesn't come back to the negotiating table when that seems to be the way things are right now, I is there something Iran could do to perhaps restart diplomacy..

"N T, M dot com. In iran. They say the US is already waging war, and the economic consequences are deadly. This is the marketplace morning report live from the BBC World Service. I'm unin good morning, the fear of military conflict between the US and Iran, Israel, despite President Trump's stepping away from air strikes. The US also issued an emergency order last night, telling airlines not to fly over Iranian airspace. Let's hear from Tehran. We're all these diplomatic and military tensions have real consequences side, Mohammad Marandi is a political analyst at the university of Tehran. I think the real discussion in Tehran. Is that the United States has been engaging in war with ordinary Ryan's for a long time now, the US president has admitted that this economic warfare, that's happening in people have died as a result? People who face shortages of certain medicines such as cancer patients quite a few of them have died already. And he calls these brutal sanctions. So he is basically. Brutalizing divining population. This is not really all that different from military conflict. What is Tehran's strategy to counter? These US moves Iran began enriching uranium this month. It's blamed for attacking oil, tankers doesn't all of this just escalate, the conflict, I think, Iran's strategy so far has been to show patience. Iran is the only five that is a binding by the nuclear deal. But now, the Iranians are saying that look, we cannot be the only side that abides by Bisa agreement, and therefore the Iranians are going to gradually decrease their commitments in order to put pressure on the European survived by their own commitments. If the Europeans decide to respect their own signatures and their own commitments. Then Iran will reverse what it plans to do in the future. So the Iranians are trying to be as helpful as possible. But so far, the European have been a following. On the orders of Trump and Trump, of course, is escalating tensions in the region side, Mohammad Marandi. Let's do the numbers.
