country's troubled relations with washington state with. a welcome to. tensions between iran and the u.s. was washington pushing its european allies to abandon the nuclear deal and willing to compromise can they still pull out of the. iranian presidential hopeful and present. in the middle east and pushing for europe to stop trading with the sanction countries but with iran's involvement in the region. crucial to the balance of
11:02 pm
power how far can the americans go in putting pressure on to her before it backfires with iran's new european friends to defy the will of washington and what will the leaders in teheran do in the face of yet another round of this standoff with america doctor who is shanghai myanmar the president of the american iranian council welcome to the show great to have you with us. thank you very much for having me speaking about the sanctions against iran for mr jeavons every for recently said that europeans will have to get wet if they want to swim against the tide of the u.s. you know lateral anti iran route will european countries in your opinion actually go on and risk anything for sake of keeping trade ties with iran alive. i don't believe i never believed that without america europeans would be any effective helpful to iran in fact europeans have been playing
11:03 pm
a very. very unfair game dave want to keep iran in the j. c.p.u.'s. and therefore they keep giving iran empty promises promises that they can deliver the purpose of european promises empty promises it's just to keep it on in the. iran so far has also been willing to listen to those empty promises because iran also want to to have a legitimate reason to a stay in the j.c. . iran doesn't want to leave is afraid of to leave and therefore it is also looking for a pretext to a stick and i believe you know pens are also playing that game giving iran that pretext to a state in the j.c.b.
11:04 pm
us otherwise there is no help or hope from europe for iran so european companies like french oil giant or dennis shipping have to wait maersk and many others have already withdrawn from iran over fears of u.s. sanctions does this mean that trying. to save the deal is really a losing battle for the europeans. it is certainly is and i don't believe europeans believe that they can save the deal but the problem is this the one that wants to save the deal is iran thus the problem iran doesn't want to get out of the deal europeans are giving iran that the pretext iran needs the bottom line they want that wants to a stay in the deal is iran because iran is afraid of exiting
11:05 pm
dead dead dead d. l. and making an america even more you know. aggravated and i guess if so so in fact iran also is trying to stay they did open our giving them by the way we all know that europeans do not mean it open governments do not control that private sector so the promise that it is that the european governments are giving are the promises that the governments are giving not the private sector and the private sector is not listening to their governments and that's why they have left or leaving iran in large numbers and in the meantime the u.s. europe and have come up with this scheme called instead basically a trade mechanism that supposedly will help certain today to
11:06 pm
continue and particularly trade in so-called legitimate to come other that is come other trees that are not under the u.s. sanctions like medicine and wealth food items exactly the only and here's my next question because it seems like turkey is for. running to set up a similar framework to the european one but turkey and iran are not exactly close of countries their relations somewhat strained over syria and other issues so how far can this cooperation go is this just. a shaky marriage of convenience for both countries again these askins are really at the bottom of our sort of oil by oil for food or oil for medicine or other commodities for food and medicine similar to what existed for iraq bought back in two thousand to
11:07 pm
the you know that is before the u.s. in base iraq only unfortunate that you that iran will have to come after the j.c. to such a situation and i think no country i believe no country. wants to really jeopardize its relationship i mean economic relationship with the united states of america a group of u.s. senators actually recently published an open act in the washington post and they're suggesting that they trumpet ministration has been trying to establish a strong link between iran and al qaeda based on no hard evidence and maybe using this speculation as a pretext to strike iran just like what happened with iraq in two thousand and three there's a round take these kinds of speculation seriously or is it just internal american
11:08 pm
politics at play. yeah that's a very good question my own view of this is that iran misread france misunderstood trom and messed up its relationship with the us center arms significantly to deployment of. but inking that relationship into some kind of a danger or is it termed is a businessman trump is not a politician is not a diplomat. from the day von trump wanted this nuclear deal been a go she remembered around vater for almost a year before he leaves jay c.p.u.'s he did not leave j.c. pos immediately he became president he gave iran as long. to think about and he tried his best and trump did not really impose sanctions for almost
11:09 pm
a year even after it really imposed sanctions it actually gave eight countries. you know have a out for exporting iran's oil and they continue to exist to. two bodyguards or so i think trump cannot be responsible for everything that has happened between iran and the u.s. i believe i believe iran has to take at least a big part of this responsibility and i particularly i particularly fault iran's foreign minister message that if i. was president rouhani because both of them saw in love video of the day scipio they could not see that that particular did in negotiating what you're saying is that iran is interested in to stay in the deal but back in july iran's supreme leader salman a
11:10 pm
has ordered the country's atomic energy agency to prepare for an upgrade of iran steere a name enrichment capacity is iranian leadership last saying or is it serious about restarting the country's nuclear program. first even bidden d.j. scipio. it on has rights to do certain things what messed come any order. was not outside the j.c. pos it is part of the j.c. pos for death for iran by by doing that mr how many by ordering that particular action was not violating the j.c.t. us iran has not violated the j.c.b. us even at a millimeter absolutely zero and therefore that is that has been no violation of the j.c.
11:11 pm
from the it are inside the international and the energy atomic agency as very fide that many many times and iran continues to stay salat. within the j.c. . and therefore above whatever that has happened to j.c. . as far as the j.c.t. us goes is the the us side that is responsible for it on doesn't day to live and i go outside the gate c.p.u.'s they chase it has become at rap has become a trap for iran as staying in the j. c.p.u.'s gives it not ng is a von vegas city it living. here yes even more dangers for iran because it gives pretext. the law there is to do it we're going to have to take a short break right now we're back we'll continue talking with dr on their model president of the american iranian council talking about the tensions between tehran
11:12 pm
and washington stay with us. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see you then. you know world of big partisan lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than
11:13 pm
ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and 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. dream agreed to pressure almost remember that it was and most of the family were unemployed were people and there wasn't it was bad you know much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation that things were going to get better. and there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america where shape my the turn principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduce democracy. engineer election manufacture. another principle according to.
11:14 pm
the rich. when you put power into the. virtue of just. one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. and we're back with dr who are signed by madame of the president of the american iranian council and three time iranian presidential hopeful talking about their risky it's her and the u.s. surrounding tensions are taking so when president rouhani has recently said that
11:15 pm
u.s. that audience tensions are at a maximum hostile rhetoric has indeed been mounting from both sides and strong pulled us out of the nuclear deal however like with north korea it could just tromps way of establishing a negotiation is process and the president has said he wanted to meet it on's leader what mr rouhani agreed to at that that day with him. well this is not a the problem is mr braun is nobody he just can't make that decision i think it is the supremes leader. who will make that decision and fortunately mr rouhani and mrs that if they messed up the nuclear deal they had given the mess of how many are kinds of promises and i dand of the day they could not deliver any message how many did ford has become a violently against the u.s. and against any new deal because he does not believe that this people are able to
11:16 pm
deliver anything or the us is willing to out to our boy allied by any new ruler so therefore it is mr how many who is k.p. is keeping the gate closed between us and iran secretary of state might compare has previously invited iranians to look at u.s. diplomacy to north korea as an example of washington's negotiation powers however nothing really came out yes of the flash diplomacy and american pressure so our negotiations between washington and peel now really a good example for tehran to watch. not really i think iran has to find its on more modern i mean first i think did. mr trump. that vase when it comes to iran an opportunity that turned
11:17 pm
to become a trap but i have to also say that trump administration is the first administration in the last forty years after it as a rule that has offered iran a comprehensive negotiation toward the north of mali ization of the nation a ship they really offered a comprehensive deal toward normalization of relationship meaning the u.s. will get into the dayton economy as the economy and the rest of it i think iran missed a major opportunity and it has to find its own model north korea is not their model that it that iran should for iran is a huge country is a very important country an idea as the u.s. really needs it on the part of the board to create the ditch that is the ability
11:18 pm
regional peace. north korea is and say iran is way too important for it best. it has to see it on as iran a country of three thousand years of civilization eighty two million people a geography you or. a lot of it iran is largely seen as will doing more influence in iraq than the americans especially person isis iran is a share power though and iraq has loss of restive sunni's rates rise again can increased iranian influence in the country trigger a new onset of six hereon violence. yes but again i don't believe the problem in the region between iran and the rest of the community out there that the countries is just she has only the shia sunni divide is one issue but it has been dead for centuries for fourteen hundred years so that the issue will is not really as to
11:19 pm
teach it bad and they should not make it i cheat death by the law and the dividing line is still is this country's national interest for them when about it it comes to the national interest for example at rocky's and others side it on his analysis on side although it at rock is a shia country largely but that's the only country in the middle east that had that eight year war with iran a lot of shias on both sides each other over a hundred million she has on both sides killed each other so i don't think that it is justice sonia she each you is the national interest of this country is and i think all of them have to come together on that basis the fact is that today's world is not the war that one country maximize is interest against the
11:20 pm
interest of others every nation must be in a fit from any d. and individual the biggest i think mistake that they jason get j c p o m eight was that it did not include. israel saudi arabia or any of it ons neighborhood so with the nuclear dale and jeopardy if they have positions of anti dail iranian conservatives and re-inforced inside the country could they distill it a from the west pushed it on into a more hardline political regime. well iran is going to war the vatican. and hardline politics no question about it the demand but the islamic republic's problems are only two hundred percent sanctions eighty percent of
11:21 pm
iran has problems is domestic and it has to do but mismanagement of its economy the country's economy is going down not just because of the sanctions that many kevin pose it because it is being mismanaged the information has over one hundred percent unemployment over forty percent income is declining particularly for the middle classes so you don is in very serious problem and i think the country is moving in that their action a critical situation toward the end of the summit a lot can happen so i think if i was here on i will make a huge domestic change it on didn't is to change is domestic it has to yes to rock that regime zick never can tell ee i'm betting that people back to his side but into right people to manage that country should not put all of its eggs
11:22 pm
on the side of the trying to help to head to get help from europe is an odd years on on sanctions or anything close to that so it is slamming your public and not just the lead trump or all this is the problem is that they dish him itself says that a deeper sense. that is just that ok but only way to do it is to restructure iran is also accused of being absolved in yemen while the saudis are going for a full on intervention will iran ever get involved directly on the side of the his face. so the problem is this. young man is an app country and it isn't data board syria is an app country isn't data board iraq is it and that country is in the end of board iran is needed an app nor it belongs to an out of
11:23 pm
board so when saudis intervene in yemen and or. syria and elsewhere it is legitimate so-called but when iran does it is illegitimate because in the un has moved beyond its territory is unfortunate this is double standard of course but it is also understandable because it is and i have wald say what the hell bit it on to it to intervene in doubt of board quoting court although we don't really have another board there are so much problems with and apps themselves but nonetheless it and i believe should it stay away from that abort it should go back to its own borders ok and create a whole new that asia ship the senate just passed a resolution that calls for ending your support to the south to complain in yemen and it is expected to make it through the house and be vetoed by trump is this
11:24 pm
a sign of what's to come if democrats win in two thousand and twenty can sound is afford to continue with their rivalry with iran if they fall out of washington's favor well first. the young man and the saudis intervention in yemen started under president obama they did not to start with mr trump that's a mistake in fact in fact you know no president. of the united states sort as much aware that today middle east then mr obama mr obama has a record of selling military machine eighty to middle eastern countries including saudi arabia ok but david a very it was very quiet and nice the question after all that is no not much of a big difference when it comes to republicans or democrats when it comes to foreign policy did it come together the other day have certain. policy.
11:25 pm
differences but at the end of the day they really come together in fact in fact i believe and if it is true mr trump it's not that regime change it it is not an interventionist it has always said that i don't want to get into it if we're not to get out of syria i can promise you that he did it without how dare a person intervene in syria militarily it will never have given up when i sat. but dropped a ball i think there's a lot of misunderstanding of what rob is doing or would trump is just a medic i don't know this already i'm fortunate that a lot of misinformation is going got out. did what they owned it isn't that's the case is because mr trump has a big mouth. thank you so much for this interview we're talking to dr hooshang

his trump america first agenda isolating the united states on the global stage sure looks like it and it is the telling its citizens what to think again sure looks like it. the. readings and salutation. the week begins hawk watchers with many around the world across the entire web still mourning for a tragedy that struck christchurch new zealand last week by now most of us know the ugly story of our white nationalist maniac complete with manifesto live streamed himself attacking two separate mosques worship. of course here in the united states we responded with our now very typical very disappointing political circus of talking points finger pointing and grandstanding followed by the tragic event but
11:29 pm
one moment this weekend stood out amongst all the noise in the buzz words it was an unplanned unexpected and passionate exchange between new york university student and muslim rights activists lean dweck and chelsea clinton of the clinton dynasty while both of them were attending a vigil in new york for the victims of the christ church massacre take a listen. to all the time all this for you that is if you. love your voice do you think you know you're going to say today to see if this is the face here is the result of that so that you feel inside twenty nine people died just a minute but. i don't think you did that i'm sorry you feel that we knew you wouldn't believe it or believe that. the actions and words that white was referring to were clinton's tweets condemning us representative bill on omar for having the audacity the audacity crazy of her to publicly question apac
11:30 pm
in the israeli government's political influence over u.s. politicians naturally the elite on both sides of the aisle came screaming to the defense of poor poor poor poor her chelsea clinton as they do when one of their own is actually confronted and held accountable by one of the by one of us of the unwashed masses who are supposed to.
