7:11 pm
nearly half the population displaced and no end in sight today. instead a stalemate many parts and in many parts adventure seeking jayhawks spilling the power vacuum. no key moment of the past three years has brought closure even the use of chemical weapons. that's where we're going to start with a special report potholes and gets old when my ut where we watching it with toronto linus who is the man responsible for the series comments belong to and the director of the center for middle east studies at the mercy of oklahoma. a welcome back to the show welcome to the nickname could say a spokesperson for the syrian national council here in paris think you can do this and that his arsenal of the foreign desk of flagship radio station costs on to co author of in french use of transit is that our secrets from the vaults the few reactions by the way welcome you've already been weighing in our hands tied to its tool
7:12 pm
for today. but this trip into that report its august of last years on refuted all evidence of chemical weapons triggered worldwide condemnation even among box rossi's russian iranian backers chemical weapons the so called red line previously laid out. us president barack obama eye the anu. lulu. guru. one lives is. we start saying a whole bunch chemical weapons move them around for you. it
7:13 pm
stuck. it's the old city. if this movie. seated in a bit the law the week. stand up and act. pack. sth sth your team launched to fix it well before sunrise. one of his twenty first twenty thirteen and governmental forces tried to take over rebel held positions in the quarter area outside damascus. just hours after the first shots were
7:14 pm
fired. footage of victims of chemical weapons were splashed across social media and tv screens around the world. in all eleven sites were believed to have been hit its fifty eight was the bomb can attest to its core mission. the photo is all they use planes to attack that the un force people to take shelter in center city south korea's on today's election me we may use chemical weapons cuddled on the line opportunity to spend the gas can find the planes again the fuel it is a no no no for four. one suspect was really hard because i thought that the team is right now in damascus the team of investigators. that is in damascus actually looking at evidence in three of the places for me was the son into a decisive event in the fight and cut up was is a suburb of damascus is very close. how could that possibly have happened when they are in in the town when in the country and their extremist a good thing. i was st
7:15 pm
my shoes tied to do anything necessary. in order to stay in power. equal. logically speaking. no it up to the syrian government awarded have had in me was one or get gas to be with us to use chemical weapons is an option while inspectors were on the ground. it is so yes it does not make sense of homes i have an immediate consultations had called the vice foreign minister he did not really kids love to tell. i pressed him for the investigators to have access to it and then the sector to speak to me didn't proceed to damascus to negotiate with the government access to a code to dvd on the gop from the very beginning was expanded we get experts to go ahead to investigate. they even go to this area and if he was not part of the agreement was signed between the second of three general is a walking yet because circumstances are after two days of
7:16 pm
negotiations that they would give us access to what is interested in investing in a sexist so we had our in the meantime plan for that access to the minute we got the green i was to find politically. and that so that's the first time either he's ever going to have a new investigation of possible chemical weapons use. within four days. it was very very fast. it happened so everything was very fresh between three hundred and fourteen hundred experience are believed to have died in the chemical attacks the syrian regime and the rebels were cleaning it out there. for western powers there was little doubt which i love socks forces were responsible for the attacks washington was forced to take action. back in the summer of twenty twelve for our obama had made the use of chemical weapons or red wine. that would dissuade them from using them then in the fall of twenty twelve. he began moving them around. and in the united states shifted its red light
7:17 pm
and said well it's not use or movement of chemical weapons just use. and then. when he began using them to us change its red line again. in the spring of twenty the twenty thirteen to systematic use. but then by august of twenty thirteen the number of incidents in the scale of the incidents clearly was systematic and and that triggered the red line. after those attacks the president invited me and senator graham to the oval office the city of three objectives wants to upgrade the capabilities of three chilean army downgrade the capabilities to buy shares dived in to read lies to change the momentum. on the battlefield. so that by your side no longer had the advantage. unfortunately the president never mentioned that again. it was when he needed a media shock and
7:18 pm
great humanitarian the committee needed to show serious blood on tv. ambling the syrian government authorities massacres that have been here since they needed. the text the united states governments and other western governments got members of the opposition out of the country. and i and brought them outside to test them. we knew that chemical weapons were being used in syria. so took a few days to get some of the samples from the hole cut out. and there the samples were matched with the other evidence and that was as firm as evidence is the united states could come up with at that time. opinion in damascus in paris and washington was still haunted by the iraq debacle ten years after the iraq war with the us want to launch another military intervention with no formal proof. at that time the un inspectors had yet to confirm the use of chemical weapons. iraq is that those hanging in the room obviously nobody
7:19 pm
wants to the same thing again and natural understandable suspicion. given that the circumstances on the surface seem somewhat similar to squeeze you the secret is that we're told is the current regional suspicions that is what i told mrs cain suspicion. yet that's what i told dr songs that's what i've told everyone at the time the store cookies. the iraqis in our in store has a uniqueness to represent the so called united nations and the so called international community that need to do so don't fall into the trap of being used shamelessly by syria's aggressor. it's been a slow been going i like the iraq war in syria the opposition and the government agreed on one thing chemical weapons were used on august twenty first and scores of series died in the attack. un inspectors confirmed that weeks later but did not see who had carried out the attack. the inspectors limited mandate for them from
7:20 pm
identifying who was responsible. it starts with simple takes you back to the chemical weapons attack that took place in the tokyo subway. it was serendipitous use their ninety seven. i was of a killer for months there it's very pure form it evaporates very quickly. his sister that was used in the hotel attack was a lot more sophisticated meaning it's mixed destabilize us so it stays on the ground and no longer needing it affects more people. web intelligence agency had very little doubt they had a variety of indicators first including a south poles and the nature of the bodies that were found there. the calculator i think the trajectory of the of the weapons and where they would come from which within the government side not the rebel side. and they concluded just as a matter of logic that time they that these were weapons or in the hands of the government and that the rebels had nothing of that scale. when
7:21 pm
you have a lot of information soon the internet so you actually can do. things that let's say twenty years ago you could not do simply because he didn't have access to information so it's no longer the domain of a sophisticated scientists put it that way. i think they are people who it would be able to do it and i wouldn't say that its exclusive in the domain of the government dictating a while. i think the regime wanted to challenge going on to him due to time if you want they would do whatever they want to know what the sentence handed to it never crossed syrian military or political leaders' minds will use chemical weapons against our own people cooper. book book. it's crazy. this does not make sense when it comes to toe you ask me again about we use to it that's for that difficult. chris becomes can actually prove in court who uses no you cannot. at that time in western capitals sped up the pressure he the us
7:22 pm
deployed its military on the coast of syria. france announced it would take heart that i get it strikes me and old women who mean the mess that bush and eight the current statistics are not remain on onset. ross is ready to punish those who made the final decision using gas is going against innocent people as a business i think you are ready to strike and targets and i know that other countries in the region were ready to strike to say that it was taken very seriously by the military command in all the necessary measures were taken we would have retaliated with all the means at our disposal. just as western leaders were taking media by storm. sharon was not focused on his communication. nearly ten days after the attacks foreign journalists who had been kept out of the country were suddenly inflated in large numbers of the syrian president and his ministers
7:23 pm
granted an interview after interview to the foreign media the serious pr offensive succeed. or did the fear of the new iraq prevail. either way on august twenty nine the british government voted against the military intervention dealing a serious blow to obama's plans. i'm not suddenly you have a situation where ten years after the united states and france who ruptured over iraq sadly for us was our closest ally of france was the one we were. most in any agreement on when it came to syria the idea freedom fries and was out and down britain was the one we have felt abandoned by rather than france. it had an effect. of course unthinkable british rule and had fake blood united states doesn't follow that great anymore. british fallow the united states brock obama himself i think is ambivalent about being involved in yet another middle east war. he takes a walk on them. south lawn of
7:24 pm
the white house for the cheapest afghanistan on a one night. you circle round around forty minutes talking it through and that three comes up with the idea that i'm going to the congress and ask them to vote on this will congress in any country can sanction these things what are the sunshine there's something about the progression but it was because anything that doesn't fit into the framework of the un security council it is enough to progress. except self defense. so delish. four days later barack obama met with vladimir putin serious staunchest ally. despite the smiles the atmosphere at the scene petersburg g twenty summit was tense. the syrian war in the asylum granted to former nsa contractor edward snowden which is some of the sensitive issues. but against all aunts a resolution to the crisis began to emerge. record cold the obama side. on the sidelines of the g twenty
7:25 pm
meeting. they sit down a couple chairs inside the room while their leaders are staring over watching them in this conversation to raise the idea again of cooperation on securing serious camera weapons. obama is a shorty skeptical or doesn't know whether this is serious thing or not. they tell john kerry about it kerry. it goes out and makes a statement a few days later his a press conference will look in syria due to avoid an attack to turn over every single bit of this chemical weapons to the international community to the next week her head up call. suddenly seems like this the real possibility. the people that pay attention to was his next athens greece's but that's not going to happen. he was buried. making what he thought was a debating point he didn't actually think this is serious. danny gets back on a plane to get a phone call from sergei lavrov pieces i saw what she said we're gonna make that bozo publicly word actually do this for rio. the tears like what we don't wanna play games here. this is only their work if you're actually serious about it. novices were serious about a kitty of
7:26 pm
the like kerry gave a statement superdome was a dutiful through a scheme to get to go to sch. it was definitely something that had been content for the full protection. she has played in our secretary of state bank of ireland. i think he was terribly mishandle ninetee was an enormous blow to our restige and ine in epercussions of thatnk we see including what vladimir putin's doing. in crimea in eastern ukraine as we speak the united states america is on the wane. it was a time according to the syrian opposition israel officially at war with damascus for the past eighteen years and it was also pushing for the us to accept the offer said a paper that the israelis would think of it and make sure the chemical eapons in reward. the us for it the two games of
7:27 pm
the chemical weapons attack due to israeli president shimon grants said the syrians must give the chemical weapons. i may have to be destroyed to dry between. rule. and i'm keen for us to chemical weapons was at one single school students and working to instill in the hospital at deterring the israelis in case they were thinking of using nuclear weapons against this sort of a tease in our new kit called a coffin the us gave the russians the green light for the first time the country at war would get rid of its chemical weapons. france however wanted stricter framing of the process. the russian us dismissed defence requests and decided to negotiate face to face. in october the first chemical weapons were dismantled and destroyed damascus was given at two thirty is going to get rid of its arsenal that the regime was soon behind schedule
7:28 pm
most of the syrian government is today in the destruction of its chemical weapons in the report sold yesterday to tony floyd said. all the chemical weapons had been taken out of syria. as if every devout. it should have been one hundred percent cricket is not true that the rate she's going to double its chemical weapons in syria. the cuts. there's no way to now. if the syrian regime disclose all of their weapons and actually most western governments don't think that these disclose all of the region's that they will keep some as a deterrent against the rebels theory is that reports of chemical weapons being used recently which wouldn't surprise me but i think he was very slowly. remove those chemicals weapons which he is starting to slowly doing because he knows that there will be no attack on him as long as the chemical weapons were being moved so. it's
7:29 pm
it's one of the great tragedies. the unwelcome consequences this is that by the cool operating with the charlotte side to move the weapons in effect the national community the united states and france are now in fact to call in bed with it with a side dish or lawson is very well to his usefulness to the united states europe and russia. and everyone else rapidly drops off after he delivers his chemical weapons. after that he is just to the most powerful warlord in syria and therefore he plays for time as usual. i think it's a shame use the fact that they are removing chemical weapons as a reason not to try to help the people who are fighting and dying as we speak. a new front has now opened in syria. rebels are still fighting government forces. they're not still fighting to heidi's groups that are gaining ground
7:30 pm
the opposition says the charlotte side is claimed the islamist current strengthening the hottest groups to die for western intention to remain in power the acid regime going back to the hum a massacre of nineteen eighty two had always tried to paint all positioned to. the regime has on the foreign inspired jihadist uprising against the state. in the immediate as illegitimate and to help to fill this prophecy. he released a number of solid to stand out as figures who were imprisoned and noble i deviated to use the we did not least she had visits from syrian presence in the moment that's just wrong it's not credible information in all when actually the one going of course syria authorities have released a syrian citizen is the focus of media you should look upon you and maybe there were few is someone who spends all but given that does not mean syrian authorities released
7:31 pm

7:32 pm
terrorists in april eighty three countries at one point the sports movies that are sponsored by the saudi trained by the americans and the french. given logistical help you by the turkish authorities center is open to it at the heights that are literally a remark by agreeing to get a read of its chemical weapons the syrian regime wanted to show its good faith. brayden know that it agreed to enter into political negotiations engineering at the geneva to conference. syrian officials sat down for the very first time at the same table as representatives of the opposition representatives that have so far been called terrorists by the syrian government. but with fighting terrorism has wanted to go green with the political opposition is another. these are two parallel lines that do not cross hatched a scheme to open up one side cannot defeat the other militarily you have three sons are negotiated solution. but the problem is the asad
7:33 pm
regime sees a transitional governing body and syria based on the reelection of president house led to a third term as president will be over if it does indeed show it was a guy there you hold elections if you're a democrat he does and everyone respects you despite the circumstances rebound the more he don't hold elections and everyone will be on your case was not criticizing you for not holding elections. it's either one of the tortilla this is the order or no. it is in its tone is one president this is crazy. for millions billions of dollars in the final sixteen in the country soon no longer have an optimal up and a beefed up. the uniformity in the lives of the region's growth. how will people cannot see and hear the music has its own heat. there is no good option. now in syria the worst option is doing nothing. that's the worst option model. more change
7:34 pm
the situation on the battlefield with half measures. the guy to shoot down those helicopters were dropping the barrel bombs you've got an anti armor or weapons that will stop their tanks and artillery otherwise you'll just see a continued stalemate in slaughter. is the custom of the notice was raised in triumph completely different. when i look in the opening of a good assignments was to just sit and use the pseudonym chemical weapons are awful they the week tremendous havoc and suffering on the people and effects. but more people have been killed i couldn't stomach and many more. the mighty chemical weapons leaving you must not forget that. back in two thousand and eleven the world was still talking about syrian revolution not a war. western leaders believe the sun would be toppled in a matter of months or even weeks. three years later the syrian president is still in power and looks
7:35 pm
stronger than ever in the east with the divided opposition and international community's incapable of finding a way out of the crisis. i was steering governments. threats of red wine. seems like a distant memory. all in one. i know mm mm. do i. chance this
7:36 pm
week were part of our third anniversary coverage. of the syrian civil war you're watching a special edition of the false and jets could it be weird to talk about what we've just seen. with josh landis of the series common law and he is the head of the middle east studies department the university of oklahoma here in the studio name can say of the opposition syrian national council book america's will to work the skills she know. just a few weeks ago was in geneva covering those talks for a fraction for untreated station calls and tail. let's begin with books you name of it. thus all so much to talk about and in that report maybe we should start with the way the conversation has been drained. since last august when you heard. the un is angela came the same time he was a mistake perhaps to focus too much on these chemical weapons chemical weapons that we cannot prove conclusively were ordered by
7:37 pm
saddam style. yes i think that an unknown since the unknown because you use what you want it's okay honey in the first time one between me and when did the u s route nine so the message along. or that the red line. okay and now with the core that the train i'm going to earnings its use. this program but they are akin to know the dude from me that's why we're focusing on the chemical weapons we know that the scheme people we know that is using bars of tnt. we note things to the elected leftist reports of the torturing them in the prison. this represents that as cute at least eleven thousand people and the suggestion damascus really how the photos. so this is for one it is in chains. why is it that is the song the report by having those chemical weapons he bought himself time and into he's basically ensure that you can to be there for a long while yet some even
7:38 pm
saying that he now has the upper hand at the wall no no for once the first one who knew that i could use the hose and has said one it's sad. this around. this has been a priest. osha me the tickets he goes on his hand and you have that ended the month immigrant. then he has a one against whom. does it again for us. i thought it curious that didn't really enter into the box of cake the real question he said morning and coming said this year on his boat and were shocked as one against the stream people the display has succeeded in maintaining itself in power and will continue to do so yet so typical of international cookies nuts since been withdrawn doing let me get your reaction joshua landis for seoul the u s aspect of what we saw we heard. john mccain there the republican senators say that the russians played the secretary of state. like
7:39 pm
the like of violin and that with what's going on both in syria and in crimea. the us is quote on the wane. i don't think that's true it's the us succeeded. it's got sixty percent of chemical weapons to syria had been destroyed now of course. obama has not changed the balance of power in syria. three rebels and serving people are beginning our continued to be killed. i never ending war goes on. so in that sense. obama has not entered into a theater in the civil war although he did destroy chemical weapons and over the stalled in the air there is a promise. and this is obama cause it's not the end the civil war. she is and he succeeded. i staying out of the series the morning getting out of the middle east which is its stated
7:40 pm
policy they are warts in the middle east is what he said when he came in eight years ago or six years ago and when he's done so far so in that sense he's succeeded and i think most americans agree with them because they don't want to get involved whether it's in syria. or in the crimea. some eighty percent of americans according to polls. twenty nine states to challenge russia militarily in crimea even if you are wanting in on this year. and you read john mccain that this is short term thinking in that the worst thing that you could do right now is do nothing. laos last series has no doubt about it is it good for america. probably it's good for. well that's the problem. what's good for america it's not good for syria. this emotional ball was the atmosphere like in those geneva talks to me honestly this was before the russians to the winning
7:41 pm
to crimea but to what was the atmosphere like that. it was the strangest most of the coast for the first time the regime and gilchrist to admit to get the don't look good to me as on directv spoke school and probably me but left the impression of peacetime. and we see it from the beginning that the regime is nothing on the hungry you want to kill time. he said though we want to go the reason we want to move to create a mood to cook them up william entire human trying to head the end all was in these very hungry and so you have to scan a final and this was that the contrast because you know field office and they want to get something to grasp some see on the pollen. april to upload some pushes a view of the regime he said. we can't talk very long time to read too stupid to do the wash as we say in french. and if i did want to move to make that and in the negotiation on the decision. in the uk on the button to it. the show would be evicted in july and
7:42 pm
the finer skills now than in a situation of conflict the tube covered in great detail is iraq neighboring iraq. the same thing where has the power vacuum and extremists are filling up this is a big part in the league in syria because of course the show maybe they'll use any stats on the concrete everything. some east end is kim from iraq from the jump from the sydney region to region in iraq some people come from the euro up from the every way into the diesel. from july on france info of foam to use yet. so now it's it's a big man is and some of the people are inside cd out maybe to deal with each other even though the people or to put the division had it going to come into putting them into the set. no maybe it's good to do to keep it that this edition was back out because we don't want to be like your acknowledgment to be called the beast russell is for a full position it's a very very difficult moment now into its thousands of fourteen and add to that if you will of the saudis last
7:43 pm
week telling their nationals to come home why the saudis are doing that at this particular because of the value that's because in fact there's plenty of fluids deities from sony apple notable good to be efficient and one day we come back to it with viola sold maybe probably didn't make a balloon being on the axle this edition of is the lack of sidewalks that is the bulk of the fitted into the mold off the cso area but they say where's my interest. and maybe that is the unfortunate to put a photo please an officer is to keep the shop in power. just like this the saudis must've known that there's the possibility of a boomerang effect after all. there's saudis have been going like osama bin laden to afghanistan way back to me in the nineteen eighties. yes well you know everybody miscalculated on syria the entire international community believe the onset of fall quickly. that's why
7:44 pm
