10:13 pm
sandra:ur our 50 guest said that vote to train a rag tag group of syrian rebels who are fighting assad is reckless and dangerous, joining us congressman pe ted p. congressman, thank you for joining us. you voted against this bill in the house. president obama just stepped up to the podium at the white house talking about this senate passage of this bill tonight.
10:14 pm
your react? >> senate did pass it, and reason i voted against the bill in the house, i think it is flawed theory if we can arm syrian rebels and expect them to fight america's battles, if this is our war, have these mercenaries, and rely on them, what and i syrian moderate rebel today is an isis member testimony, we found this to -- tomorrow, we found this to be true many have openly switched side, and are now fighting in syria, this theory is flawed to try to expect them to come up to the plate. we'll end up doing is arming syrian rebels, they are not going to fight isis they are going to fight assad. that is why i voted no. sandra: the president appeared to be doubling down on no boots on ground, his words, we do not
10:15 pm
and will not have a combat mission. you know, former defense secretary robert gates was outspoken about the fact he believes that president is putting himself in a corner, by saying in no circumstance will he put american boots on ground at a time many american generals have said it may be necessary to put boots on the ground. >> well there are already boots on the ground in have trooped in iraq, once again. training the iraqi soldiers, once again, to fight isil, remember that the iraqi soldiers, threw their american weapons down, isis picked up those, they are using them, it is misleading to the american public to say we don't have them and never will. i don't think we should telu iss what we will and will not do in the future, i agree with the
10:16 pm
general, the president may be backing himself in the corner. sandra: you have an interesting exchange with secretary of state john kerry, you asked him to specifically identify who the enemy was. what do -- what was his response, what did you think of it? >> i thought it was important that if we're going to war, that we know who the enemy. is i asked him, tell the american public, name, the name of the enemy. and he said, well the name of the enemy is the enemy of islam. now, i thought that en enemy's e was isil. iraq, islamic state of iraq and sir jack he said the enemy of islam. i said are they the enemy of the united states as well? he said, yes, they are the enemy. i don't know why he is renaming this group, he went out of his way to say they don't represent islam, they represent a radical faction of islam.
10:17 pm
this is isil, isil is a foreign terrorist organization, a group called enemy of islam is not a terrorist organization, if we're going to do battle, define the enemy, and define the objective, i think he had a difficult time telling us what the enemy is. sandra: you seem adamant about war terminology, and john kerry did not seem to think it was important to specify that, you did, made your points clear, thank you congressman poe. >> thank you very much. sandra: path to war in middle east not seeming to have an impact on oil markets, oil down again today, that is down from over 105 dollars a barrel in june. a lot of supplies revealed in a new report, oil stocks rising last week, maria bartiromo talked with chevron chairmen and
10:18 pm
ceo on the opening bell. >> well oil market is well served right now, what happened with the shale revolution, we're seeing more product of oil, which has in some ways off set some of the product that has been lost overseas because of the conflicts in the middle east, and elsewhere. so, if we can produce more oil in this country that would make it better for the consumer overtime. sandra: be sure to tune in to opening bell with maria bartiromo tomorrow morning, maria bartiromo broadcasting live from dallas fed, joined by dallas fed president richard fisher, american airline ceo doug parker and texas governor rick perry. i will be part of that next as i am every morning at 9 a.m. eastern time, on the fox business network. >> up next, scotland has been part of united kingdom for over 300 years. we will know shortly if that association is officially over.
10:19 pm
former british parliament member john browne on the political and economic consequences of that decision, next.
10:20 pm
10:21 pm
10:22 pm
for the mastic violence. peter shrader joined us on that. and a vote for the united kingdom is underway right now. the cry for independence, some say goes beyond. >> it has been terribly mishandled by a guy that everybody knows, and it's very interesting. i think that there is meaning in this and it goes beyond scotland. there's a great groundswell. sandra: vote stands as too close to call.
10:23 pm
my guest says that that independence comes at a hefty price, one that the scotland people may not be aware of and one that may affect the global economy. senior strategist john brown joins us now. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> you just heard the words of chairman murdoch talking about this sentiment in the area. so what is your response? >> this is a totally irresponsible abuse of democracy where these scotland people can determine what is going on in the united kingdom. and the european union wishes to destroy nationhood and establish a whole lot of regions just like scotland, one that is more easily dominated and world from brussels. and this is the plan and they
10:24 pm
are doing their dirty work and will honestly did a fantastic job and if this was the time passed, he would be charged with high treason. so they are getting rid of 58 left-wing seats in english house of commons and therefore it will then a conservative majority. and so of course, here is a man that denied an opportunity despite a cast iron guarantee that he would hold a referendum and he denied it for the british people. but he gives it to 4 million people in scotland and that allows them to dominate the whole of the united kingdom. with enormous implications at the defense. britain has paid a fortune over the years to secure its northern border. sandra: there are a lot of questions about david cameron's future. so mr. murdoch also made a
10:25 pm
forecast on the bow, he believed that there was about an 85% turnout and there is an overwhelming turnout, they lowered the age to its team, which will boost the turnout. he's predicting that there is going to be a deciding vote, 100,000 votes in either direction. we have seen the predictions move to some now predicting it could be on the yes side. if there is a yes vote here, do you believe that other countries in the united kingdom will follow suit? >> well, i think that mr. murdoch is saying that there will be a close call. i believe there will be a "no" belt. the impact is that the european union is trying to get rid of nationhood and here we have the cotillion since spain, those in italy, the very ends in germany. all to be able to follow suit, people like texans might stay in
10:26 pm
america. so here we see an example of scotland, a democratic useful secession from a country. and it's going to take on a fashion which is going to hasten the dissolution of the western nations, just along the lines that secretary of state kissinger said in his recent book, world order. and i think it's a tragedy and it's going to lead to a fark greater tragedy. they have lowered the age limit because they think younger people won't understand. so it's an outrage and they have used doneness and everything. the scottish people are going to suffer tremendously. sandra: certainly that vote should be out tomorrow morning. and the independence for scotland has been campaigning on the access to that. and there's question about this
10:27 pm
two blaster they were down on this before. so these are shrinking flowers. of course, a lot of this will go to london, england. and it depends on the negotiations, whether they hit the coastline where the angle which they project that into the sea, it has yet to be determined how much of the oil will be determined. very undecided. a huge amount of steak far above the scotland. sandra: please tune into fox business tomorrow morning for the latest on the scotland vote. worry rothman is hosting special coverage of 5:00 a.m. eastern time. in the deadliest ebola outbreak. the death toll topping 2600,
