the saloon. and many people here will tell you that this is something that they do not want meanwhile the united states says it's considering adjustments to how it gives military support to kurdish led forces fighting eisel in northern syria he considers the kurdish syrian fighters known as white terrorists on friday the turkish government said that u.s. president donald trump told his counterparts yes a typo to one that supplies to the kurdish led groups would hope for the state department now says such decisions on military support will be based on battlefield requirements. not on. we are allies of the us under nato and we have made it clear several times to us with the right method with the right rhetoric that this was not the right thing to do what we were told in response was that they attached a lot of importance to the fight against eisel and as a result they had to assess all options but of course it is not a choice for us to work with these organizations to fight against it is
6:07 am
a necessity they told us but we are having difficulty understanding this since when do you need to work with one terrorist organization against another terrorist organization it's not fitting of a serious state and not behavior that suits a country such as the united states or any korea is professor of journalism at american university the american university of beirut and senior fellow at harvard university and he says that the lack of unified opposition and u.s. inaction is allowing the syrian government to retake control of land resources with the help of russian and iranian backed forces. the track record of the united states and syria in the last six seven years is that it has not consistently done anything really well it keeps changing its policies a little bit here and there and sometimes dropping them we had a change in presidential leadership and policies are just a little bit we have problems now with trump says something and then the state department of the fence department says something else so it's hard to tell what
6:08 am
the united states is going to do what we know is that they've gradually pulled out of the driver seat or they never really were in the driver's seat but they were hoping to drive events in syria about five six years ago and and now they have relinquished that to the russians they have a link with the kurdish groups in northern syria they'd like to keep that link it's one of the few bits of leverage they have but it's still not clear what they're going to do with the track record that they have of recent years suggest that they're probably going to gradually let the syrian people to the extent that they can but more the russians the iranians and the turks that defined the future of syria thirteen people have been killed in thirty injured in a suicide attack southeast of the iraqi capital of baghdad it happened near a market in the know how one area i sill has claimed responsibility imran khan has more now from baghdad. well the sources are telling us that all after the explosion
