Tensions simmer over Northern Cyprus' plan to reopen Varosha

"In nineteen seventy, four intervention by Turkish military forces after Greek inspired coup in Cyprus the famous Borussia Resort region was shut down over one hundred hotels with a bed capacity of ten thousand has been empty. No forty six years United Nations Security Council resolution states that the ghost. Count Ghost town. Can only be resettled by its original inhabitants. But now the Turkish. Separate Prime Minister has announced that the beaches there will open today causing much consternation from Cyprus and Greece one, hundred Lucinda Smith. The eastern will correspondent for the Times joins me now Hannah. Thanks thanks for coming on. Can you remind us of the events leading up to the closing of the region? Show well, of course, Cyprus in Nineteen, seventy, four, a war broke out but really the tensions on the been going on for more than a decade already between the two communities. The Greek speaking community on the Turkish speaking community. Now, in nineteen seventy four, what happened was that backed by Greece the Greek Cypriots tend to do. In response to that the Turkish army INVADED IN THE NORTH And progress down to the South and actually the line that they take. Shami was planning to progress to stops just north of Rocha. Rocha shouldn't have been part of the part of the territory take. Mohtashami. But they did in fact, take it. Well, it didn't do was opening up again to the public. They kept originally kind of bargaining chip hyping to sort of extract some concessions from the Greek separate side using this kind of faulting chip of Rocha. But she what's happened is that for forty six years, it's remained behind barbed wire, its military zone, the only people who are allowed. That are Turkish military personnel I'm very occasionally U. N. personnel now. On the did kind few images that we've seen coming from. This is really kind of striking quite eerie. Once, very, very lavish resort place where people like Elizabeth Taylor and severe ran went on holiday. Now just completely crumbling to dust. So what are the latest developments? So actually totta are the north separate prime minister announced. August. That the Russia was going to be redeveloped and reopened. Now this is something entirely near this is who come up cyclically disgust every so often. And so in a way. You know again it's you know one of these ideas and they'll never come to fruition. But as you said on Tuesday nights totta made the announcement while he was nine crowd that is going to be open today, not the whole town, just the beachfront But the really significant thing about this is that that was just five days away from the presidential elections in no Cypress scheduled to be held on Sunday Ersan Tatars candidate in those elections and I think the really interesting thing you mentioned that it's this announcements is met with a huge amount of opposition from. A Greek Cypriots and from Greece is also met with quad loss of opposition from Turkey separates as well It says caused the government of North. Cyprus a coalition government collapsed to one junior partner said it was pulling out that coalition and so her fide by this kind of sudden announcement and submit Prank and I think you know lots of people that know Cypress particularly Essen Tatas political opponents thing. But he's really using this as a kind of political stunt to give him the edge in Sunday's elections but I mean it's illegal isn't it? How does Turkey justify it? It. Is Legal Yeah as you said, according to the UN if anyone's going to be resettled in Russia, they have to be the original residents, most of whom were Greek separates. Now thought present factors has recognized the ship of the proper does the commission up. To, look into how the original owners of properties in brochure could be compensated Most of those people wanted some kind of compensation. Some wanted their properties back. But yeah. The fact is you know if any redevelopment of that town is going take place, there's this two major issues in all Cyprus firstly is the town the for forty six years has just been crumbling into the ground. It's GonNa take music. You're going to have to be kind of a demolished and reconstructed which might work, and secondly that is an she is going to cost Cyprus huge amounts of money if they want to do this in the kind of legal and proper way, and let's not forget the no. Cypress's is a country this only recognized by Ankara, it's pretty widely embargoed eighty four. For its economic survival is much propped up by Ankara saying it's places kind of ready access to to the funds needed to do something like this. So I think the question amongst. People position or is this just an election stunt? Is The beach just going to be open for feed is a member. She was just going to be closing lucky walls before a finally Hannah. How this feed into Turkeys dispute with European Union members Cypress and Greece territorial rights in the eastern Mediterranean. Yes sure I mean I think it's coincidence that is nouncement was made in Ankara. The obviously, no cypresses almost entirely dependent on anchor for it survivor. Essen Tatars. I said is the is kind of anchors favored consciousness elections, but we'll see this is why dispute going on in Syria and Cyprus and in the eastern Mediterranean more broadly which she the tickets very much. The House of it's about the converged UNSEE gas. It's about maritime sovereign say on that those people down over the past few weeks rather still not been resolved and I. Think this is hugely emotional for for separates greek-cypriots particularly, and it's just another thing I. think no guide to sort of. Prolong this arguments this maritime arguments niece.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music

"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads

"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen

Greece fears border standoff with Turkey over migrants' return

"Early March. The Turkish President Type other unsaid migrants were free to cross into Greece and announced. The border would be opened. Many thousands of people attempted to cross and were fired on with rubber bullets and teargas by both sides but then corona virus struck and Turkey sealed the frontier to the northwest leaving almost forty thousand refugees stranded in crowds cups in appalling conditions. Know as lockdown ends. Athens is concerned that the movement of migrants will begin again and has already reported that boats carrying migrants had landed on the island of Lesbos. Tensions between the two countries are increasing. Well Hannah listen to Smith is on the line from Istanbul. Hanna is this situation heading towards a new border crisis. Well several different people assistants warnings are one of them being Europol. Who earlier this month? Put out a report warning quite starkly that Turkey was likely to try to organize the movement migrants towards the Greek border again. Possibly using methods like we sort the end a separate beginning of March so Putting on buses for migrants from cities like Estan builds the border possibly by winding down his own border forces at lumbered with grace but says knee. I'm in the the evidence from the past week seems to show that After a hiatus of a couple of months during the coronavirus crisis we're starting to see the other crisis the Mexican crisis building up again. The Turkish Coast Guard rescued. Seventy two asylum-seekers. A Monday after they'd been turned back from Greek waters. And as you say the new arrivals starting down the islanders less Voss so I think certainly over the past couple of months. Everyone's attention has been diverted in clearly. Boards have been closed. But I think this is a crisis that hasn't gone away by any means and is the frontier opened on our their border controls in place. The frontier isn't open yet. I think that's something that we're going to see happening. I've the next few weeks Turkey's eastern border with Iran was likely open very very soon. The interesting thing is actually. It's over. This border the most of the migrants that trying to make their way to Europe and now coming then not necessarily coming from serious much anymore So I think especially we're going to see those See there's numbers stuff since built up again and don't forget there are already full million migrants intake. You're ready many of them. Desperate to get almost anywhere else in his a safe country in many respects but life is very very difficult for for people who don't have papers you don't have the right to work He didn't have the money to to find decent accommodation. So you know many people the jury Mr. Let's get to Europe. And of course there are many thousands of people still in the camps. What are the conditions like that? Yes the people. He made their way to the border. The border in March. She went the current virus outbreak started. They were taken by the Turkish authorities to Closed comes in other parts of Turkey. The texture authorities that was for a fourteen day quarantine periods and then they were then allowed to guy but on the Greek islands on the other side of the crisis. Those conditions are fairly appalling. I mean the Greek government has moved some people watch. Those comes as you said before. They're still moving. Search thousand people in those comes on the Greek islands. And let's not forget that comes of a never built to host people term. They were set a temporary hot spots. There are meant to just host people for a few days while they were registered while the details were taken in while there are moved on somewhere else sent back to Turkey and what they've turned into over the past four years is just holding pens incredibly squalid overflowing Insanitary I I think. The beginning of the coronavirus crisis really concern was the the virus was gonNA re ripped through those calms Muscles that hasn't happened. There's been some cases particularly unless voss but but luckily it seems to have escaped the ravages of Corona virus. But that doesn't take away from the fact that that is so incredibly incredibly dangerous and summitry places for the people living in AN MP in the governing New Democracy party's accused Turkey of trying to weaponize the refugee situation to he says extract European support for its geopolitical goals. What are those goals? And how will encouraging migrants to cross into Greece further turkeys ends? Y'All I think is is fairly clear that you need to take years trying to weaponize. Refugees nuts becomes more more overt in recent of course culminating and what we saw in February really presentations aims to fold on one hundred those domestic aims. So it's never been particularly popular among Turkish people to have such a large number of refugees overwhelmingly Syrian refugees in the country. There have been complaints about this from particularly from opposition parties. Right from the start of the Syrian war but increasingly also own voters are becoming increasingly angry and dissatisfied with the fact that eight years on eight is after the start of the war a huge amount of refugees still here that's exacerbated by the fact that tech is going to his own economic crisis unemployment levels are rising Texas struggling and of course that itself is bitten exacerbated by the coronavirus crisis lockdown. So you know. We've seen rhetoric on refugees shifting at the start he would say. That's you know the Muslim Brothers. That the very welcome that they'll be looked after in. Turkey and increasing over the past couple of years he started saying three in Saint Louis forever. They'll eventually have go back So on domestic level you know doing things like this plays quite well but also on a firm policy level. Everyone has been a begging other countries strictly European countries for support in hosting refugees. He's to certain extent dot support. He got six billion euros from for promise from the in thousand sixteen to help look after refugees. But he says it's just a drop in the ocean also support for for the Turkish army's In Syria whether holding a line against President

The Syrian ceasefire US brokered already falling apart

"How should we understand today's ceasefire it seemed to me to read like it was the trump administration gleefully announcing a kurdish surrender is there a more optimistic way to understand it than that i i have a more pessimistic ed understanding of it definitely not a more optimistic one to me it's a way of pushing the pressure off trump home i would think changing the news story for five days i don't know why the trump administration feels that they can negotiate on behalf of of the why PG that they just abandoned and quite frankly the syrian and russian forces who are now in the region that are apparently is going to be subject to this cease fire immediately the wing vice president pence remarks as spokespeople for the autonomous administration and the ESPN app said we appreciate the ceasefire but we are not allowing the turks to invade our country so ultimately what's going to happen is maybe there'll be a ceasefire for five days that would be nice but at the end of the five days trump can turn around and point the finger at the kurds who have refused to leave their territory and were the syrian forces have who refused to leave their sovereign territory and them the bad guys and say look turkey turkey gave me a chance we negotiated in bad faith you guys are now the bad guys and you know what turkey go ahead and so i i really i know that that is cynical but at this point i i really just see it as a way of trump changing the narrative laughable ola one of the things that we always hear about the kurds in northern syria is that they're the most capable fighting force in this sort of anti isis coalition they proved it yeah and that there many of them died fighting in had eleven thousand deaths the turkish armies the second largest army in nato it's a very capable fighting force how easy will it be or is it proving to be see for the turkish army to roll into these areas and how capable or the kurdish forces of defending them from from turkish incursion so far it's been proven i'll just say very briefly it hasn't been they haven't been rolling over the f. d. f. and the SPF has been saying oh if if the united states had kind of retained control over the airspace new in the region it would have been an entirely different game but they've lost the air war but should rush a move in and control the airspace they haven't yet but they have been flying sorties in the region that will also change the nature of the game terms of this issue

U. that agreement stop hundreds of thousands of migrants entering Greece from Turkey and the latest surge appears to be causing alarm in Europe German foreign minister hi co mouse has voiced concern of on Chris commitment to with my current deal with the E.

"turkish army" Discussed on KFI AM 640

"Actually run before the shot. Forty. More stimulating talk is that are cheaper place Brian here until eleven o'clock with your weekly look at the world melting down both far away and close to us. So a little little later on. We'll talk about the the Russian test of the so-called guard hypersonic missile. And then also what? The American missile defense, there might be towards that. I'll tell you the story of the time that Air Force One thought it was going to be shot down. So that'll be next hour in the third hour. I'm going to replay from Christmas of last year. I did sort of a walking tour of the World War One battlefield. And I told you the story of the so-called Christmas truce of nineteen fourteen. So that will be in the third hour. We'll be we'll be playing a best of because people have requested that. So there's that. But let's start with us because we're going to have a whole lot of Syria this hour, and that's just the way it is because of events in the president announced it'll be two weeks on Monday that the American forces are getting out of Syria immediately within sixty to one hundred days, and they're not wasting time. It it it appears that the mood on the ground is if there's really no good way to do this. Let's do it fast and little little known fact from from about four or five years ago as as President Obama did a draw down of American forces in Afghanistan, the very very expensive M wrap vehicles. See the. What was it called the damn Bush proofed? Amrop vehicles that were a huge step up on the humvees. Hundreds of those thousands of them were destroyed in place in Afghanistan because the Pentagon maintained that. The shipping. The back to the US would be more expensive than just destroying them in place. I should say mine resistant ambush proofed vehicles. So we destroyed thousands of them in Afghanistan. So we when we want to get the hell out of somewhere. We can do it. The the question is simply how much money do we want to waste, you know, doing it? So there's a precedent of their. So for those who you knew the dark secret places, a weekly look as I said in the world melting down and the world's been melting down in Syria for a couple of years now, but it really is kicking into high gear right now because of the president's quick decision to get out of Syria. And again it followed a phone call two weeks ago yesterday with president to one of Turkey who would really really really like American forces out of the way. So that he can do whatever the hell he wants to do in Syria, which is pretty simple. It's it's kill as many Kurds as he can at least clear them away from the Turkish border and the Turkish army is moving into Syria in a in a big way. But I think it might help to go back a little bit a little over five years ago. There was a thing called the Arab spring. It began in Tunisia. And it's spread of course, to Libya where we saw the collapse of Moammar Gadhafi's rule. It got to Egypt where temporarily the President Mubarak. Well, permanently prisoner Mubarak stepped down and the adoption army which actually runs Egypt as a as basically a gigantic plantation. They were forced to stand by and watch so-called elections. Take place. And the Muslim Brotherhood found themselves the winners of the election. Because of course, they went around the countryside and threaten people the whole thing. The army took care of that about a year later with a coup, and so Egypt was stabilized from Arab spring. Of course, it if it happened in Saudi Arabia. We didn't hear about it. If it happened in Bahrain. We actually did hear about it. But it was put down in Bahrain, fairly brutally. If it happened in Qatar. We sure didn't hear about it. Because who's going to report it Al Jazeera, you know, they're owned by the king by the emir of Qatar. So anyway, that was your Aarab spring in countries with a Sunni majority and Sunni leadership now that brings us to Syria when the Arab spring popped up in Syria, and it happened because some some young men in a town were doing anti Bashar Assad graffiti and the. The Syrian government reacted the way they always do which is a bunch, and it was put down and that pretty much kicked off the revolt in Syria a little over five years ago, the difference and the reason five years ago that I said that that particular rebellion had the legs to go half a decade was because unlike the other countries, including Egypt Saudi Arabia, Tunisia. The leadership the people with the power that people with guns in Syria. We're not sunny, they were a minority, and they continue to be a minority. The minority is religious based and they are Alawites Alawites, Terry. A spin off you could save from Shia Islam, which is in itself. A spin off from the majority Sunni Islam ninety percent of the world is Sunni Islam. The people who are not Sunni or all the people in Iran who also are not Arabs. But they're Persian. Shia. The Iraqi are majority Shia and they're Arabs. But meanwhile, meanwhile in Syria, the Allah whites controlled everything and in doing so they had to make allies who were their allies allies throughout the Assad regime. Whether it was his father Hafez or his son Bosscher who was not supposed to be the ruler. He's not supposed to take over for his dad. The oldest son was supposed to take over for his dad, but he died in a Ferrari accident in in lots of Kia years ago. So Bashar was told right when he was setting up his his optometry because he's an MD. He's an ophthalmologist, right? When he was setting up his optometry practice that you had to get back to Syria and take over for old, dad. So for for decades, the minority had the power and that included the Alawites the Shia. The Kurdish minority in Syria who happened to be sunny. The Christians in Syria. Maronites etcetera and the Jews in Syria. So the the minority had the guns and had the power and the majority Sunni in Syria, which is about seventy percent of Syria. They never were given any serious power. They sure that could be a local mayor. They could be in the military, but they couldn't reach a certain rank. They could be in the air force. But they would never fly fighters they might fly helicopters, and that's how things were done in Syria. And so right off the bat the dynamic in Syria was that the power structure had absolutely no incentive to reform to to put up some window dressing or a new coat of pain. There was only one choice in Syria, and it was hanged from a lamppost or fight like hell to stay in power. And so they chose option B on this one, and it has been a brutal civil war. The part where America comes in because up to this point. We don't have a dog in the fight to be honest with you, except that if you are a chess player, and you know, what might happen, then then you know, that if a Sunni majority takes over in Syria. Then it will be financed by Jihadist elements in Saudi Arabia in Bahrain of the Emirates, it's cetera. That actually that was a pretty good natural balance in Syria. The other thing that was going on five years ago was as I've said a million times if you walked into the or the State Department in two thousand thirteen and you said, you know, I have a way for militant Sunnis to meet and fight. Militant Shia, and we will not have to spend a dime. We won't have to put in American on the ground. We will not be held responsible. And we can just stand back and eat our popcorn. You would have been kicked out summarily. You would have been put in front of a psychiatrist they would have called the police on you. Because the notion was absolutely crazy that such a thing could happen because that would be beneficial beyond expression to have militant wings of Islam ships. Shia Sunni, kill each other. But then events took over our decision making and in the vacuum that was left from from the Syrian government authority in the middle of their country. Popped up a Islamic terrorist group called ISIS, the skeleton of ISIS, the brain of ISIS came out of the remnants of Saddam's mukhabarat, the the Iraqi intelligence agency, which was dominated by Sunni. They they wanted in the big picture to restore Baathist Sunni power in Iraq. They saw this fractious. Shia democratically elected government flailing about in Baghdad not delivering the same services that Saddam used to. And also they saw that happening now next door in Syria. So this group called ISIS that began to attract disaffected young man in Europe, French Belgian German Italian they are they were all first second third generation Muslims of the Sunni extraction because ISIS was a very fundamentalist will harvest Sunni group, so. The willingly came and volunteered to lay their lives down for a promised Islamic caliphate in Syria. But the you'll notice that is really showed its hand about who it was because they could have stayed in the middle of Syria, possessing all the oil land, and they could have made money had fist. And there was nobody to challenge them. But they did something that brought the United States to their doorstep. And it was not intentional. I'll tell you what that was right after this just some background before we talked about Syria tonight on the twenty ninth the thirtieth of December there, but before we get to the situation on the ground. Now, I'll get you back up to speed one more break on that. And we'll get to real real time around if this it's a dark secret place.
