again changer but not in the way that that is desired by the tribe administration you know iran and the u.s. have been arch photos of the current state status of a verse that has been in limbo somehow between these two our foes will you know turn. spiral out of control as a result of this smallest mistakes you know a misfire or a story like the u.s. marines that were captured but you run in iranian waters in the persian gulf this could you know spiral out of control and end up in war and only the beginning you know the in the show impact would be rising crude and energy prices in the you know as a result of such conflicts and clashes in the persian gulf therefore it seems that donald trump is forcing the whole board and the region to pay for the costs of these illogical you know decision making policies and decisions and i believe
12:01 am
democrats and others if there are any you know wise minds left in washington already europe their foot they need to you know harness such crazy moves whose economic gains forty united states are rather nothing are out of this a curate the impacts and the mess in fact the united states iran and the whole wars would be grave and out of control ok must suffer. we thank you for speaking to us from tehran giving us reaction from there let's bring in steve clemons the editor at large for the hill he's joining us here on set hi steve nice to have you know with us with you as my guest from tehran who was just saying this is a logical decision making by trump himself what do you make of this looking at how do you know that you know it's clearly an escalation of circumstances it takes a tense situation it it does make it more fragile and so we'll have to see where this goes i think so far we've been dealing with the i.r.g.c. as a military arm what's not. just as it's also
12:02 am
a sprawling business empire it has enormous assets inside iran and there are now risks for for any company that does business with those injuries and what we were doing and yes exactly there are lots of auto firms in europe and in japan that do quite a business a lot of business with these firms so they will now be at risk in ways they weren't before and the other kind of secret in our relationship with iran are non relationship with iran is that there's been implicit cooperation with iran between the united states and iran on many occasions we saw that in afghanistan after we had invaded afghanistan to topple the taliban they worked with us in putting karzai in place there have been subtle efforts to get the conflict in certain regions where we had common enemies and you know iran and the united states behind the scenes have done this this puts at risk all of that and it takes a place like iraq where you have both u.s. forces but you also have militias from iran there and it raises the possibility as the editor in chief of far is just said of a crisis or a moment escalating into something for because in our eyes that military arm is now
12:03 am
a different player it's an hour terrorist on a different league so it doesn't make either fragile does this and then put u.s. troops in the region at risk as some in the u.s. seem to say well i think it i believe that it may do that and and i'm what i don't know is whether we have gone to all the steps we have to kind of look at that possibility and protect forces in a way that we might not have as wendy sherman our four former undersecretary of state who's now at harvard university has that this is that the biggest change right now is that u.s. forces are risk because all of the other places in terms of sanctioning iran none of that really changes we've already sinks into iran to an enormous degree we've already decertified of the way there are no avenues for pathways right now that are workable so this is a political move the biggest result of which puts u.s. forces at risk and here's the thing the trumpet ministration seems to be exerting what they call maximum pressure on iran but is it clear to you what the actual and game is here. well i think right now if you were to ask that of president trump or
12:04 am
his team the endgame that they would like to see is total capitulation and regime change in iran now i don't think that is shared by the broad strategic class in washington the national security class of people both within the pentagon the intelligence community the policy community and look at that as an unrealistic goal because in the absence of any other game plan as to what we're trying to achieve we're not seeing that that said donald trump is an erratic president he was interested at one moment in meeting rouhani the president of iran he was you know there are many people that have been looking at iran as the sort of devil in the region but but but donald trump likes to surprise us sometimes and maybe in the very toughest of circumstances might be willing to meet and he tried in the past they reached out to the iranian leadership in the past for a meeting even to right now if things look very dire right we have to realize that this president sometimes can jump as he did with north korea from what looked like a clear collision course into something that's very different i'm not predicting
12:05 am
that but we have to leave open that here's the thing though it was expected there were rumblings about this and the last period yet it is still an unprecedented move when the u.s. designates a branch of an armed forces a no there is no means there is no desperate as they say no on president makes it absolutely complicated to deal with iran on any of the formal or informal levels it raises the risk of of conflict in the gulf it raises conflict potential in iraq in afghanistan and syria and other places where we have where we cohabitate if you will in various conflicts we may not talk to each other much but we're both there so it raises those risks enormously and it raises the costs of our to our allies both in europe and japan in ways that we may not have thought through so on the negative side of the ledger there's quite a bit on the positive side this certainly does add to what the president was sensibly trying to do is to to to squeeze iran it's not clear where he wants to go with ok steve clemons thank you for your analysis. you know the al-jazeera news

no escape from the violence from we say in your he fled the conflict in mali to come to libya in search for a better life hoping to get to europe but he's now in a shelter in tunisia while armed groups are fighting for the capital tripoli and you are along with eighty others boarded a boat to reach italy. the situation is bad they take our money threaten us with arms if we refuse to do what they want or work for them they'll shoot us. the u.n. believes militia groups fighting each other in tripoli are involved in the lucrative trafficking trade of african migrants to europe manning detention centers in facilitating boat rides across the mediterranean the u.n. security council imposed sanctions on six prominent libyan figures some have close ties with the country's east funded libyan coast guards in two thousand and eighteen warlord khalifa haftar struck deals with some european countries including

italy's right wing government to stop the flow of migrants the number one european power that really has been beyond behind have time for the last four years is simply france france has been quite determined to support the solution that's military and it's only in meantime has been kind of converging towards this front solution you are and his friends are in this temporary shelter after their boat was stopped by italian coast guards instead of offering them asylum or bringing them back to libyan waters the migrants were pushed to tunisia's coasts. with no money or work the rescued migrants receive a daily ration of sardines bread and milk barely enough to survive so now regret leaving libya. up until yesterday there were sixty eight migrants staying in this compound most of them have left unhappy in the way that usually authorities are treating them while they have come from libya despite the risk they want to go back
12:26 am
to libya because they say that's the only way they can get to europe for europe appears so close almost reachable. and as if i have the money i'll go back to libya to try again to get to europe determent perhaps desperate and with nothing to lose for some returning to libya despite the risks is the only way out nicholas hawke al jazeera. tunisia protesters in south africa have returned to the streets of johannesburg to call for better living conditions and public services they're threatening to shut down the suburb of sound one of the richest in the country from either miller has more from johannesburg. it's a small group of protesters but they're making their way to santa and the a financial hub of which i had this bug and right a symbolic march at this point in that they've managed to stop traffic bringing

have a. low shading route is no more low shading so try to experience it daily people here say they want action from the local government now the african national congress has denied allegations by the opposition party the democratic alliance that the agencies behind these protests that they are instigating violence it's very much what we saw in the last few days when these protests took place in alexandria township essentially for the people here this is becoming about a fight between two parties which have the power to make a difference they say but at the end of the day nothing is being done no senior political leaders have visited alexandra yet we understand that the premier of the how to province and potentially president up also will the list visit alexandra but that hasn't happened yet and this is adding to the anger felt by the people here

12:39 am
something like you know the bad actors will go out of their way to avoid the systems that we've got in place they actually didn't have any systems to detect the events in christchurch and you know maybe the delay on live streaming would be a good thing as an interim measure until they can sort out their ai maybe they just need to another local together and then it is to acknowledging that is capable of causing great harm. still ahead on the outs there are news hour twenty is winning brussels sisters swap the board and their latest gymnastics competition. we live in a time of war and tragedy it's crimes against humanity. activist repression. enforced disappearance arbitrary arrests.

a tool of state crufts today the united states is continuing to build its maximum pressure campaign against the iranian regime i am announcing our intent to designate the islamic revolutionary guard corps including its good force as a foreign terrorist organization in accordance with section two nineteen of the immigration and nationality act just as a nation will take effect one week from today this is the first time that the united states is just made a part of another government as an f.t.l. we're doing it because the iranian regime's use of terrorism as a tool of statecraft makes it fundamentally different from any other government this is stuart step little brother world's leading state sponsor of terror the financial means to spread misery and death around the world let's fix the roads and jordan she's joining us from the u.s. state department and this is an unprecedented move roslan by the state department. it is an unprecedented move but both the secretary of state mike pompei o and the
12:51 am
u.s. president are saying that this is simply one more step in trying to convince the government in iran that it needs to rejoin the community of civilized nations and that it needs to stop fomenting terrorism in a number of countries around the middle east one thing that we heard from the special representative for iran policy brian hook is that there cannot be a stable middle east as long as you have a government arm such as the r.g.c. engaged in supporting hezbollah in lebanon in trying to support bashar al assad the president of syria in that country's civil war and that it is taking sides with rebel hooty fighters in yemen prolonging that country's civil war. is to not just put pressure on the i or a g c but also to convince namely countries and businesses in europe which have
12:52 am
continued to do business with iranian businesses many of whom are underwritten or operated by the i r g c to reconsider their actions and to step up the isolation of the government in tampon our rights our lord with an update from washington rosen thank you let's make to steve clemons who's the editor at large for the hill who's joining us here in doha on set steve clemons we're just hearing from iranian state television that's iran's supreme security council has now designated the u.s. military forces as a terrorist organization in response to that move that was announced by secretary of state peo what's your reaction to that well that was expected foreign minister zarif said that if the united states took this action which they suspected was coming down the pike that they would return in kind and as we all see we see a ratcheting up of tensions are greater for jill. and i think there are many many dimensions to this that haven't been thought through there are second and third
12:53 am
tier echo effects of doing this particularly when you find both iranian troops in the similar theaters as u.s. troops we have the money right here on stage in the background he has been and had militias inside iraq we also in operate inside iraq so they're going to be potential clashes and collisions and where they go we don't know interestingly you mentioned so they money because during that press conference that mike pompei a gave he in fact declare he was honest and declined to say whether this move would make me a military target as are other people for example i saw a leader is because they're the i.r.g.c. now isn't the same designation as groups like eisel. as well right i think in this in the global playbook the way the playbook is it does make him a target because they can't think it doesn't give in this designation and given the way other terrorist designated groups have been treated in the past so there's no
12:54 am
there's no book that says oh we designate this entity a terrorist organization and we're not targeting those individuals we're not having those kinds of you know communications with iran now that would ratchet things down and i think that's a real problem with this there are many dimensions of this we don't know where where they will lead for instance you have nissan in japan and in france that does a lot of business inside iran was there any consultation no there was not sort of ideas of economic impacts that will come from this but there are also security ones and there's a we've gone from a relationship with iran that is clearly one of rivalry i know being foes but we've taken that largely stable relationship as foes into something very new territory so why do you think that this announcement was made now we have been expecting it but is there something to be said about the particular time i think the president has decided president trump has decided. about one year out from decertifying the g.

c.p.o. way and stepping away from the iran deal of wanting to really fully definitive close down the track of opportunity with iran that's the way that looks right now now the president could change down the road he is a he is an erratic person he can take as he's done this with north korea and other countries before and he can do a backflip in another direction but right now i think this presidency wants to basically ratchet up things i also think we have tomorrow elections in israel and people haven't been talking about this but the theater in the middle east is also one defined by the close relationship between prime minister netanyahu and president trump and beginning to designate iran is a more specific and and clear focus in the region does have some help to netanyahu is campaign in israel ok steve clemons thank you thank you. tripoli's main airport has been evacuated after it was struck in an air raid long by warlords twenty four have taught us forces. the strike
