3:36 pm
shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. with your make this manufactured consensus instant to the public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the final merry go round listen to the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. in the real news room. welcome back russia's defense ministry has warned of an imminent provocation being
3:37 pm
prepared in syria one that will say terrorist states a chemical attack and lay the blame on the assad government. a strike on. using poison laid missiles is planned within the next forty eight hours thus some play is outside the region preparing yet more provocations on syrian soil involving chemical weapons with the aim of destabilizing the situation there and undermining the positive dynamics of the ongoing peace process. details aussies don't court it joins me in the studio now don thanks for coming in what are the details have the russians given about this alleged plan of provocation well the latest report comes from residents from the province in syria and they say that a group of civilians is being trained in a nearby area called coffers to carry out the aftermath of a chemical attack to be blamed on the assad government now eight barrels of
3:38 pm
chlorine have already been apparently delivered there and the white helmets are ready to perform a fake rescue basically as the ministry says they want to send footage to arab in english speaking media outlets and we asked the white house once for their comment on this on their involvement in the situation but they have yet to respond now muska has raised concerns not just about the possible actions of those on the ground has that yeah absolutely just a few days ago quite out of the blue actually john bolton said that washington would be willing to respond very strongly if it thinks that the assad government potentially used chemical weapons let's hear what he had to say. we now see plans for the syrian regime to resume offensive military activities and. we are obviously concerned about the possibility that it may use chemical weapons again if the syrian regime uses chemical weapons we will respond very strongly
3:39 pm
now interestingly enough around the same time as john bolton statement the u.s.s. the sullivan was deployed to the persian gulf and according to the russian defense ministry this is a destroyer class ship armed with cruise missiles and the ministry also claims that the u.s. the u.k. and france might be prepared for a strike there. now it province what is the situation there at the moment who controls was well it's the last terrorist stronghold in syria after the syrian government's victory in and around damascus they cut a peace deal where saving thousands of civilian lives but the tradeoff was safe passage for the remaining terrorists in the area they were sent in buses to now for terrorist groups now control that area the most powerful being. formerly known as al nusra ties to al qaida and the others are jaish al islam and. now they're not exactly unified they started warring putting thousands of civilians
3:40 pm
in danger there's already reports regularly coming out of the area of the headings caging people and even using people as human shields and other reports are suggesting that some of these groups are gathering for a final push against government areas hoping to stage both a chemical attack and to gain support from the west now the situation is made even more fragile because this this specific area was deemed a deescalation zone after negotiations between russia turkey and iran so with these reports pointing to western intervention in the reorganization of terrorist groups it's hard to see how any. deescalation would happen any time soon indeed don thank you for bringing is that to speed on that and i'm sure we're going to be keeping across the story throughout the evening thank you jim. well this week washington about the details of new sanctions targeting russia which come into force on monday the measures punish moscow's alleged involvement in the poisoning of a double agent and his daughter in the u.k.
3:41 pm
however hard evidence of this has yet to be presented then sanctions bans foreign assistance in certain arms sales to russia they also block credit lines to the country and perhaps at the export of security sensitive technologies some members of the u.s. congress want to increase the pressure on russia even further. ongoing efforts to interfere in our sacrosanct election process and those of our allies are just some of the unacceptable behaviors of the couldn't regime rush's attempts to interfere in the two thousand and sixteen us presidential election are well and widely known one suppose that the president united states came to be. instead i want to bring the russian economy to its knees russia has undertaken a campaign of malign activities in its attempt to compete with us our allies and our partners because the two thirty one gives us more tools with which to respond good and wants to break apart the american public your task is to bring the economy
3:42 pm
to its knees and i would use that. our actions are posing an unprecedented level of financial pressure on those supporting the kremlin's malign agenda and on years of the russian economy are getting out of the economy had been brought to its well russia could face more restrictions from the u.s. in november these could reportedly further hit banking and trade between the two countries as well as limit its diplomatic ties there is also a thoughts that russia's state adeline could be bangs from the u.s. as space days before the latest stunning scenes were imposed the russian president doubted that have much impact. regarding the sanctions those actions are counterproductive and meaningless especially when it comes to a country like russia it's not just about the u.s. president's position it's about the position of the so-called establishment the ruling class in broader terms i hope the realisation that this policy has no future
3:43 pm
will come one day to cooperate in a normal fashion in an effort to put even more pressure on moscow washington hinted it could sanction turkey as well i would just isn't see by the russian s. four hundred and defense system the u.s. has also warned a list of other countries including nato allies against having similar ideas you know it goes against our. policy to have a nato allies such as turkey use an asse four hundred system part of the problem with that it is that it is not in iraq robel with other nato systems that would trigger katz's action i'm not going to get into that but we have made very clear what could trigger sanctions for other countries and entities around the world the people behind these policies do not look at russia as a partner at all they look at it is an adversary and that their goal is essentially regime change in russia buying russian weapons is not bad because they are a competitor for business they're bad because there is essentially
3:44 pm
a full scale political work they are being carried on against the russian federation by the agencies of the american government not only with regard to arms purchases but every other excuse we can think of we will find ways to put new sanctions on russia or countries and companies the deal with russia being tough on russia or isn't that popular in the u.s. at least according to a recent gallup poll fifty eight percent of those questioned think this think it's more important to improve relations with russia raul then be tough with mosco well as people in the u.s. capital with the sanctions all the best approach still you don't really believe anything anymore i am i to believe that these tell you one thing but it could be do you have another reason for fighting and i want everybody to get along you know i think you need sees the way to go peace we need a better relationship with everybody i'm in favor of russian police would be really difficult right now in the situation now where and when. you know the current
3:45 pm
president i mean it's nice to get along but you can't trust russia they always been under another me so they get what they deserve i think that is important that we do they have the and putting. substances into other countries that were allied with the. parade to be related to the government in russia anyway the cold war was terrible for. everybody you know we need to thread the delicate needle of encouraging bad behavior while recognizing that there are a world power that needs to be respected for their capabilities and you know navigating through that is not simple well he would love to hear your thoughts on all of our stories start to get in touch by following us on social media join us again at the top of the alpha all the latest.
3:46 pm
because you know provision i might buy going to what it. has but i. owe. you for your height oh i lost his boss because i just got any of that but let me just go which was you know just like anybody on a month all of those in person but the best honestly i don't know if there's been any of them. so i'm not as you know but i was you know. you know just i mean most of what i'm already but it was sped up out of me just a lot of the media. i mean it was a lot because they don't. know if it up as well i must admit that really feels i just don't get it i'm getting letters but those were the old. those people are going to respond on one of those but i would probably say just this well is one of these i will ask him i want my family fussy you could have got a bomb i just bought that already yes it will be and he thought of getting up there calling cuisia jim clemente katie yeah my thought aloud but let me just gotta go you.
3:47 pm
when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer an it be in the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict just found dennison the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying the is just no way to arrogant and that we even many a victim's families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victims' families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite you know we've been through this this isn't the way.
3:48 pm
welcome to world a part of the iranian nuclear deal once branded as a major achievement of american diplomacy has now become the poster child for the absence of it dull trans decision to renege on the agreement not only it reopens a major international problem but it also calls into question the very means of solving it with ellie's betrayed adversaries befuddled how should the world navigate its way forwards to discuss that i'm now in joined by jared blanc senior
3:49 pm
fellow at the carnegie endowment for international peace and formerly a u.s. state department ordinator for iran nuclear implementations mr blankets so good to talk to you thank you very much for finding time for us thank you now i'm sure you're greatly disappointed by. present trends decision to wire walk away from the j.c.b. zero eight but hopefully there is still some room for damage control how much of a do you believe can still be salvaged well i suppose you can call damage control there from the u.s. perspective no good outcomes here one possibility is that the path that we're currently on the successful and that's that immediately after president trumps announcement president rouhani said ok we're going to stay in the deal for a little while and give time for the other participants mainly the three european countries to to see what they can offer us to make it worth our while to stay in long term that could succeed it would be good from the perspective that would keep
3:50 pm
her on the nuclear program under control and under inspection but it would leave the united states very isolated and europe for the position to confront other problematic iranian policies alternatively those negotiations might fail which would lead to a resumption of industrial scale enrichment and a serious serious problem for the region in the world now trump is obviously in violation of the american obligations but to some extent he's choosing his word because last winter he gave the europeans what looked like an ultimatum that he was going to do it on the last the transatlantic allies could it gree on sound ways of shoring up the deal and i gather from your article is that the talks which began in january were progressing fairly well what do you think may have happened to upset all about progress well i think it's a combination of a lack of sincerity on president terms part he wasn't really looking to come to an agreement with our allies he was looking to act on his and
3:51 pm
a mess toward his predecessor barack obama. and also the total chaos and dysfunction in this administration and so the president gave his ultimatum senior officials work to negotiations with the europeans i don't think there was any process to brief the president on that progress and so. you know he heard about it from president mccrone and from chancellor merkel but but had not been buying into the decisions made along the way as you pointed out in one of your articles there were a number of things that trump could have done he could have extended the sanctions waiver to allow a little bit more time for the talks and yet he decided to end it abruptly after all those meetings cordell meetings with president micron and chancellor merkel to the russians that looked kind of through a do you think he was trying to make some point to send some nasa edge to the europeans or is it just mr trump being who he is you know it's hard to know if he
3:52 pm
was trying to send a message but certainly after all the bonhomie of the micro meeting after the supposedly improved atmosphere in the merkel meeting and then he actually treated his intention to make this announcement and sort of telegraphed where it was going while foreign secretary boris johnson was actually in washington trying to convince vice president pence and the secretary of state to continue the negotiations it whether or not he was intending to be rude whether he was trying to send a message this clearly isn't the way allies behave toward one another the russians are often accused of and into taking all sorts of conspiracy theories and i personally think that's a cultural thing rather than political because we enjoy a counter intuitive explanations and one such conspiracy theory that's been. stalking me is of us preparing for this program is the thought of whether or not iran is the main thing here do you really think that. the major thing here as mr
3:53 pm
trump sass is this fear of iran's potential nuclear program oh absolutely not if the concern were ron's nuclear program the solution was the j c p u. if anything the pulling out of the running the risk that iran will receive. industrial scale enrichment that raises the possibility of increased conflict across the board so if you want to conflict with iran this is the way to go this is obviously not about trying to contain iran's nuclear ambitions but i'll say that what i think this is really about is barack obama president trump is trying to tear down the accomplishments of his predecessor i think it's pretty clear from his public remarks that he does not understand what was in the way or what is in the g. c.p.o. a and it doesn't really matter to him he doesn't have a policy objective he just wants to disparage barack obama and what about the so-called european allies because. there are some many issues involved i mean the
3:54 pm
the fate of the european. exemptions from tariffs on steel and aluminum is still very much up in the air mr trump is supposed to make his decision until june first now there is a threat of. secondary sanctions we are talking about a very very large chunk of the economy do you think all these economic issues and i'm trying to phrase it very carefully not to be accused of russian bias but still do you think these economic issues are going to be featured in the political discussions on the run sure i mean the first thing you need to say about this is that from your from europe's perspective iran does not matter economically so whatever decisions europe makes these of the the g c p u a are going to be national security could decisions and political decisions if they want iran to stay in the g c p a way they're going to have to offer some additional economic benefits but that's not because europe is deeply in hammered of the possibility of trade with iran i do
3:55 pm
think though to your question your broader question europe is perceiving all of these things as a piece of the steel and aluminum tariffs the recent sanctions on russia. the resumption of sanctions on iran. and i think you see the united states disregarding the needs and interests of its allies and europe and other allies are going to have to look at this and decide how to respond in order to protect their own console and yet mr blank you suggested before that in the event of trying to pull out your of will likely side with the united states even if it blames the current administration for ruining this deal and if it does i think the european leaders will essentially have to accept that their level of credibility is the same as trump is that they are moral equals and i personally don't think there's much trouble on that side as far as the u.k. is concerned but when it comes to germany when it comes to france. do you think
3:56 pm
they can afford it from a moral point of view do you think chancellor merkel for one can bring herself to be seen as standing shoulder to shoulder with trump and that well first of all i think that's a little bit unfair trump is the trump is the actor he is the decision maker in this terrible decision the european leaders are now stuck with a series of very uncomfortable dilemmas that they will need to resolve but but they're not the ones who created this disaster what i wrote though was that if iran were to were to respond to our violation with a violation of their own i'm quite sure that europe will side with the united states if you have the u.s. out of out of out of compliance in iran out of compliance then europe will side with us even if we were the if it's our fault if iran manages to stay in compliance i think europe is in a much more difficult situation and the possibility that they will try to strike a additional bargain with iran to provide some replacement economic benefits israel but i think the question here is not only striking additional concessions for iran
3:57 pm
but also negotiating that with the united states because i'm i'm pretty sure you're heard a number of officials and the trauma administrations directly almost ordering our european companies german companies to get out of iran to seize that. business operations there immediately. that's hardly seems to be building bridges that you employ with the allies but putting that aside do you think the united states needs to be taught a lesson here that's essentially the question i'm trying to ask you do you think the european union needs to take a moral stance in this on this particular issue to show the united states the trumpet ministration in this in this example that this is not ok to conduct international politic policies like that i'm an american i'm an american former official i'm not going to call on europe or anyone else to teach the united states a lesson i think europe has got a very very hard set of decisions to make where they'll need to decide the need to
3:58 pm
weigh problems in the transatlantic relationship against their real concerns their national security concerns about the resumption of iranian unconstrained nuclear program and i'm sympathetic to how difficult those decisions are going to be as i started out by saying from the u.s. perspective there are only bad answers here either you've got europe essentially isolating us because they find a way to save the deal or you've got europe failing to save the deal and return iran returning to unconstrained in richmond which is a huge problem for us for europe and for the world but hold on mr blank you may have forgotten but it was the administration you worked for the obama administration which was very proud of forging the so-called european consensus on sanctions against russia back in two thousand and fourteen and the rationale back down was that. russia in your eyes violated certain norms of behavior and needed to be signed
3:59 pm
a signal that this is not the way you conduct yourself on the international arena now we now have the united states which clearly violated its obligations to reach is involved in behavior that the you clearly disapprove of you made it very clear throughout this program we. also leads to an increase in confrontation in the middle east should the united states be sent a similar signal that this is not the kind of behavior that its european allies welcome on the international arena. leaders around the world including from our closest allies have condemned this decision and the very fact that europe has now shifted from negotiating with the united states to negotiating with iran is a strong rebuke to the decision that president trump made i would i describe president obama's leadership on sanctions with iran with russia with other countries a little bit differently from what you did i don't think it's a question about germany making a moral stand or
4:00 pm
a value judgment what i would say is that we were able to convince countries around the world that on a variety of problems we had a plan and a way forward and that if countries were willing to suffer a certain amount of economic dislocation in the short term we could solve real problems and so in the iran case we were able to convince the government of russia china india as well as our closest allies to stick with us and we got to the j.c. . and some of russia's policies we were able to convince as you say germany and other european countries to suffer some real economic harm because they thought we had a plan i think the problem now is that the united states is proving that we cannot be trusted with this tool and so the chances of getting even our closest allies let alone a nontraditional partners like russia like china decide with us i think they're they're much much reduced i don't know if you heard this but tom.
