we were told that john bolton would get the respectable position in the government again that he was fox news analyst commentator and that actually played a significant role in his new hire. truly seems to like to acquire those people. see nice things above him on fox news or some other networks and at the same time in both bolton is it and trump are at odds on almost everything possible if you look at policy once more it's certainly they're at odds with what trump in the kid he wanted his foreign policy to be when he was running his campaign now when he spoke against regime change against nation building against democracy promotion. but the trouble that we've seen in office we've seen an increasing tilt not only towards war hawks as as evidenced by the cabal of generals running the government but out right into the the laps of the neo cons and this is a neo con regime right now with pompei of the volcano and secretary of state
bloodied geno geno has boom even supposedly in the cia because of her role hands on in the torture of detainees they call her bloody gina and now the walrus is back john bolton the circle is look we were a neocon regime they could only mean they're going to be a little more specific. but ultimately isn't it neal conan and it what makes him more interesting more terrifying is that he doesn't care about democracy he doesn't care about human rights he doesn't say he doesn't use all of the packaging for military adventures ok he believes he doesn't want to make america great again he believes in the military that's his it and he's very straightforward about it that's what makes him slightly different than his cohort go ahead oh well i just loved his cold. all international waltz i'm into this to constrain american. and of course i mean he was the you have all the reason to be going to
the united nations i mean if anyone could explain to me the difference between new conservatives and the neo liberals i mean doesn't make any difference for a person in afghanistan or in iraq or if he's killed by a missile that means someone could just believes in american power or it came from hillary clinton who believes in american power to service all of universal libral well yes ok if you need different neo liberals an economic policy that has nothing to do with foreign policy ok well because you missed it specifically here i mean we have trump making an overture to meeting the north korean leader both and is going to advise him against that i mean is this could be the first test. i think when we started talking about this meeting proposed meeting between term. and. we said one of the things we said was that the meeting may not even take place it may be a rhetorical exercise. for various political purposes and when we talk about
bolton tampa well the word on the scene we have lengthened with least one issue and that's the issue of dealing with iran and bolton and. have been very aggressive in syria and iran openly advocated attacks on iran military aggression against iran months ago he said it wouldn't be it would not be illegal under international restrike against north korea in fact what separated tillerson macmaster from the rest of. the military and security team was that tillerson have to actually believed that getting the u.s. you know in a unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear deal with iran would hear it to the american diplomacy in the long run because who would trust american diplomacy if when your communication could just reach that signature in then the very possibility in any kind of deal with north korea is off the table because if you make a degree. when you break it you break exactly you're not going to yes your world is
going to be trusted here mark. trump is never i mean from what we've seen of him during the campaign and his presidency he never allowed us anyone to outshine him is bolton's ego too big to fit into this position does he want to be a kissinger or brzezinski and certainly he does have an ego. but i think we actually present more of his ego he presents a larger than life figure for us then he does he knows his place he is a bureaucrat he doesn't know his place he knows when to kiss who's but in order to get literally spit at his very has a history of night on agree that he's not a neo con i don't think that the neo cons have ever believed in democracy or promotion that was simply that they you misread that's not what that's why i don't call him in the oh come because the neo cons have their propaganda he doesn't have any pretense of that i think. he supposedly promised dropped by the c.n.n.
is reporting. that he wouldn't start any new wars where obama has already got nine of them to go into the bombing nine countries at least so i mean trouble already inherited that but i find that extremely hard because of that and amazing i don't you i don't see the color guys don't start a war of you know really upset george bush saying you. know when you have texas he's obviously through his career he has contempt for diplomacy and i've been saying this all along it's part of the genetic code of foreign policy right now is that you just needed to ministry you don't need to have a diplomat and the kind of options that bolton is going to be giving trump. i have to believe it's going to be a reflection of his entire outlook on the world and so what would i think political call him you know he's a hammer in search of nails absolutely well are just big to this situation. room the negotiating room over donald trump and kim jong un. and he says to keep
going on i'm the person who just suggested killing your board in your blog don't pay attention to that we're going to have a nice conversation here but you know the problem is whatever you call it liberal interventionism you know conservatism the bad thing about this ideology is that it doesn't value in any way the lives of the people who don't agree with it you know just recently it is you know in damascus that killed at marketplace thirty seven people you know the cush who got a call expulsion there was almost no reaction from the western media will remember how sorry you know what was was bored by the by the by the sort of military forces and you know all the hysteria about old marketplaces you know being just roared you know borders littering the for these markets the same thing happened in damascus and no one paid attention from the rebels from the refugees. from the syrians been brought up here. and i think that in many ways is that there is some kind of.
ambiguity in this one from white house about syria you think that's going to get much more focused right now that you know bolton is going to be you know pull the cia back in officially and other thing works to the new national security team in the bush years in common is there a common approach to iran and of course that is going to be a major part of what happens in the sea and because russia and iran are allies in their fight to stabilize syria to remove a tickle islamist elements from shia and the united states will do the most to keep those elements in as long as possible there was a an interesting intelligence analysis in the open on the public one done in the us a couple months ago which stated that the so-called moderate opposition is she has about a year to go so if the united states and its allies are able to. put
more energy into them more funds and so forth maybe a year maybe a year and a half more so they will try to use that time to destabilise here as much as possible with those resources that they still have left now one should come on to the comparisons between john bolton and kissinger and kerry kissinger and risky where known as foreign policy intellectuals john bolton is certainly not he is a hard line diplomat. who like so it was. i don't know if you know i don't know where it is so you see it was a rapidly running out and i think he said it. was him but that he is a kind of line military mystically aggressive diplomat who is not an academic the way that a lot of the stones were disturbed when kennedy made khrushchev kennedy's response was negotiate what's mine is mine what's yours is negotiable mark i want to go to you because you brought this up a number of times since the election we have the u.s. state department putting pressure on the europeans pretty germany for the. north
stream to pipeline now we have the iran deal. the europeans were being pressured to change and now it looks like the with america is going to walk away from a complete completely why would the europeans want to be involved in the i mean this is the two example i just read still pushing the division is growing growing the europeans don't like it i mean they don't like his treatment of the u.n. international law anything there so this is actually rooted out already you know the enemies are willing to grow but i don't think that concerns the u.s. the u.s. you know this this new triumvirate of bloody geno and pompei of the volcano will be handling the. start well i think he's on his way home and kelly has got a nickname i think they're on their way out there too saying in moderate on military matters it may take six months but i think they're both gone so iran iraq iran this is what. he is. in
a celebration of the terrorist former terrorist group now recycled by the u.s. they've removed their terrorist designation the m.e. came. next part of the program i want to ask you is this also wedge against russia using the rand is a part of the equation that's part of the equation and certainly russia simply exist resisting the united states and syria bolton is a is a colt of american supremacies exceptionalism he cannot tolerate that some democrats have suggested that bolton is too soft on russia for them which is a is a maybe i'm a pretty amazing but never met a in an exercise of u.s. military power or in power that he that he doesn't like hold up thought gentlemen we're going to go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue our discussion in the war party staying with our.
politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. some want to press. you to go on the press this is what the three of the people that i'm interested in the water. should. when lawmakers manufacture consent to the public will. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the final.
fundamentally the united states and russia are have been for decades to scorpions in a bottle each capable of destroying the other but all the at the price of being destroyed itself. said well these weapons will overcome u.s. missile defenses u.s. missile defenses were totally ineffective against russian forces already so they'll be more effective against russian forces. welcome back to crossfire all things considered i'm peter lavelle to remind you we're discussing some real news. ok mike i want to go back to you right before going to the break you were talking
about bolton iran and regime change go ahead if the mujahedeen eco is it is a terrorist group it was formerly formerly designated by the united states is a terrorist group it targets iran they have extremely extremist views they were sheltered in iraq then the u.s. took them under its wing after its invasion occupation of rock iraq and rehabilitated them and now they openly hold meetings and they've got a million dollar war chest the lobby in washington's and john bolton is one of their favorite advocates he recently spoke at a gathering of the enemy in the united states and he promised two things first he wanted to make sure that the government the iranian government that was put in place during the islamic revolution doesn't reach its fortieth birthday and also he promised them that we will celebrate two thousand and nineteen meaning him and
these terrorists in tehran which you know like some kind of conqueror. this is this pattern of regime change i still have said it so many times so many years it's the genic genetic code of american foreign policy doesn't matter who is in office but with bolton you get it if he doesn't hold any punches here picture you know united states is already chosen decided who will be ruling iran by the end of next year. amazing bulletins are to your mind me of a piece from robert gates memoirs where he talks about having one victory parade in the red square in the internet you want. both of them. to come to you he may become the national security adviser to the un which was. done likely just a few years ago but iraq government is going to be chosen by iran's people just
like before and not by the hawks in washington d.c. let's change gears here de mille it's like about what's going on in the u.k. we have with this alleged poisoning incident i would still like to see some kind of public evidence made to the public so we could start drawing some real such a policy because i really believe there are these divers even more hype hundred years of western europe jurisprudence ok you're innocent until proven guilty but that is different it's always different courts new york don't tend to on. spectacle. you know the u.k. because of that accident agent his name is highly likely you know like highly unlikely so i thought that was a great fall and the problem is that the e.u. believes that too because if we read the statement taken two days ago it is. the union agrees with the u.k. government excess meant that it's highly likely that the russian federation is
responsible and that there is no hope where there is no possible way towards explanation we saw we state no plausible alternative explanation even the courty increase nation would want to do you know if you know i have to wonder then with this conference of your european union leaders where they presented with evidence to come up with that kind of language i doubt it in our world perception is that you know it's you and with the. russian. campaign in the western media with the information being flooded with into russian memes and information this type of response is to be expected because we're now you don't have to present any evidence whatsoever to have a conclusion that russia is possible for anything and that is the great danger in this that anything could happen tomorrow the next the doing so not all the president of the british and they make it work of state money i think and then
blame russia for you know. you know if you had all the crazy idea came into my idea is to receive me using this to avoid bread regs it sure there is i think there is a whole host of of domestic uses whether that is the actual reason that this has occurred or whether she simply using onto the scene she's distracting from brags that it's not going well the country half the country never wanted it and the negotiations are going well for her plus four more dangerous because of all of this you have this leftist labor leader who has resisted all attempts by new labour's elite to overthrow him who would dramatically shift the united kingdom's foreign and possibly much of its domestic policy as well and this seems tailor made we have seen the propaganda photo shops from from the british propaganda corporate i mean british broadcasting corporation. in order to defame. jeremy
corbyn and present him as some kind of russian agents were not a tells me and i want to say this to all of you is that this is desperation this is a mode of desperation no evidence is provided there is no interest in finding the truth because the truth has already been established because what russia did it here i mean this is shows a level of desperation of the political elites that they will grab on to anything good but the victim of this desperation is the relationship between russia and. europe and the russian and the rest of the west because we are seeing their idea more than a dozen countries is our country pleating exposed and diplomats next week in the united states the national security council has presented its recommendations to a dog trampled by the expelling dozens of russian diplomats from washington d.c. and of course if that happens this monday. tell you. about your intelligence agents in moscow you will. you know in russia
a lot of people had this perception that the united states is bad makes you want to behave badly towards russia well at least we cut short the e.u. is bad enough when it's all they can do it and let me tell you you know from history all of the disastrous things that europe that did were done collectively look the napoleonic wars two invasions of russia. or was this too it's great they were all done collectively so when they say you know that we need a strong collective action all scrip okies their treatment all that was pages in european history court inquisition was done collectively to look at the e.u. of course please part of getting them all together getting the european powers together and forcing them to make decisions that there will be frequently not in there and that's what these latest sanctions for of course if we talk about specific european countries a number of european countries are not interested in worsening relations with
russia it's not interested in traditional distinctions are you know when push comes to shove. how many how many countries would you because of course not for example because you know i mean easiest one maybe five or six but it's not there you just like when a section suggested if i sort of lost that differences were being real and you've seen a lot of statements micron evidently initially resisted this whole thing saying that there had to be evidence then turned around the next day with this. group here is what i have known for are the german foreign minister. is on record saying that this is a bilateral issue it's not an easy issue it's something for britain and russia to ruling out because the big exit in the e.u. gentlemen talking about a very important topic here we have a massive budget passed and signed into law in the united states a huge military budget here. they make what is this the mantra is that obama degraded the military i'm sure all those countries that were bombed by the united
states would agree with that statement here but now this is going to be a massive build up as usual the pentagon doesn't usually spend very well but it's important at the same time to our viewers should know is that russia has decided over the next five years to decrease military spending will russia is. going to get that frantically rush understands that it does not need to keep on a military presence around the world in dozens and dozens of countries like the united states does russia does not have. world i mean the nation or being the single specific power there russia has no such more chips so it doesn't have to unlike the united states it doesn't have to spend. trillions and trillions of dollars and billions of. debt but one. thing yes so russia understands that to give a semantical answers to. the american threats that that is what it does it doesn't
even says a good often yes it a lot of ways this is simply because russia does have very limited geopolitical horizons and uses words military it's primarily defensive with some a limited role for the interventions like we've seen in russia in defense of the syrian government in syria putin set out a program putin and the russian defense minister surely go set out a program of modernization. and that modernization has largely been achieved now that it has been achieved russia has the luxury to sit back and say we've met our purposes we can sit back and put some more on domestic spending and we'll reduce military spending down to three percent of g.d.p. so continuing the reform girls are still to a few figures here right now right now russia spending one is defense in excess of five percent of the g.d.p. and all of the candidates for the presidency agreed that it was too much you know
we need to cut it and when did putin decide to cut it off we want the capacity to hit the united states not by i mean he sells three or four would be enough you know because russia doesn't want to invade it you want it works to dissuade just isn't right i don't want to have own arms right as it were right after russia got the capacity to neutralize the. military government executives to or rather to return it's like you know a cold war saying mainly maybe this so what we don't want to keep going to see just two or three it would be enough because we are not going to keep them we don't want to keep them we want security and ought not diminish and forty seconds. i think that what this in the case first of all it's being read as russia trying to step back from an arms race again like i said i think this is already been planned russia never really wanted in an arms race it has been pushed to this now that it
has recovered its strategic deterrent it sees the strategic balance returned with american a mystic a ballistic missile defense at least for the time being having neutralized russia is confident it can return the priorities the biggest priority that putin laid out is education science and technology russia wants to avoid it arms race because he doesn't want to be outspent so why get into a competition where you can't win russia is not in the competence. with the united states russia is simply trying to provide security for its citizens and to take away opportunities for the united states to a ticket without that he's put all the great powers are in competition so i get home when we get home not going to run out of the many thanks my guest here in moscow this is the in of our broadcast segments stay with us for the extended version on our you tube channel see you next time and remember across the.
about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself in taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry but only i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never again like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one differs i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. join me every
