the money during his funeral in iran well we begin with al jazeera as a summit in jade from the iraqi capital baghdad. until u.s. and pro iran chance in the iraqi parliament elected representatives came together for an extraordinary session the iraqi pm laid out his preferred option after the assassination of passions in the money by american missiles well in the heart the larger the who what 1st ending the presence of foreign forces as an emergency measure and making arrangements for that secondly to go back to the draft decision that was put forward to the parliament before the current government took office. but all kurdish representatives boycotted the session and most of the sunni m.p.'s were in there the emergency session of parliament is a reminder of the deep ethnic and sectarian divisions in iraq between sunnis shias and kurds at least one commander of the. group has said that if the parliament
7:03 am
fails to cause a decisive resolution against the us presence in iraq on sunday all future sessions will be worthless. a powerful cleric who heads one of the leading blocs in parliament criticized the decision as a weak one so they're called for the shutting down of the us embassy on so-called resistance groups inside and outside iraq to form urgency the tally and similar sentiments were echoed by other shia majority political blocs. this is a real test for loyalty and patriotism we don't want to disappoint iraqis as their elected representatives if this council cannot protect sovereignty it's useless. not everyone agrees with a quick pullout of correlation troops and these protesters carried out an end to the clash with pro iran supporters a similar sentiment runs through anticorruption protesters who forced out of the as the prime minister the iraqi pm says legal procedures will begin to fulfill the
7:04 am
parliament non-binding resolution but he leads an interim government with limited powers who are they so it's a resolution not a law if it's really binding iraq will be exposed in front of vice all americans helped iraq there are a lot of problems for the economy as well. even if lawmakers could all come together and vote to end the u.s. presence in iraq immediately that process would take more than a few months to implement on the ground time which groups out for revenge do not want to give u.s. forces on the job get out of the or back that well gary joins us live now from washington d.c. the president now threatening sanctions against iraq if they boot out u.s. troops what was he been saying. president trump did not speak to the media when he left mar-a lago his resort in florida and did not speak to the media when he arrived in washington either but he did speak to some reporters on air force one
7:05 am
and he said that if if he told these reporters that the u.s. to spend billions of dollars on military bases in iraq and that if iraq kicks the americans out of the country in any way they would not leave until the u.s. is reimbursed for that money building those bases according to trump then he also went on to say that if the u.s. is forced out of iraq that the u.s. would impose sanctions on iraq that he said would be much stronger than anything that the u.s. has put on iran so what you essentially have now is you have trump administration and trump president himself not only ramping up the rhetoric and escalating the situation with iran but also now with these new threats of sanctions against iraq you have the same escalation happening with from the president with iraq as well. trump is again threatening that the u.s. will attack iraq cultural sites what more can you tell us. yeah this is
7:06 am
remarkable in some ways the president. on saturday sent out a tweet where he said that the u.s. had 52 sites on a list that they could hit. any iran and he said some of them are high level areas important to iran and the iranian culture insinuating that he would strike iranian cultural sites now the president telling reporters on air force one on sunday saying and these are his words they say their meaning iranians are allowed to kill our people they're allowed to torture and maim our people they're allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people and we're we're not allowed to touch their cultural site it doesn't work that way that's what the president told reporters on air force one so he's basically doubled out doubling down on that and again threatening to attack cultural sites in iran that would be
7:07 am
a war crime against the 1954 hague convention for the protection of cultural property and so really raising a lot of eyebrows here on that comment i got to say we also just cut a letter in from nancy pelosi the speaker of the house that she sent to her democratic colleagues this just came in to us literally a minute ago and palosi sent this letter to her democratic colleagues in saying that this week the house of representatives will introduce and vote on a war powers resolution to limit the president's military actions regarding iraq and in the letter it says reasserts congress long standing long established oversight responsibility by mandating that if no further congressional action is taken the administration says military hostilities with regard to iran must cease
7:08 am
within 30 days now just briefly here to. keppen good put a little bit in context when president trump ordered this strike that killed so that money and others he did it on his own without it by using congress in advance and that really upset nancy pelosi who said that he should have been biased congress in advance because congress has an oversight responsibility so essentially what he's saying now is get ready because now when congress reconvenes on tuesday she says she's going to call it into session and basically. have a vote on this basically holding trumpet to account all right again and is on the live for us from washington d.c. thank you now from tehran said big reports on the large numbers of people who filled the streets for custom from the mommy's funeral procession for. a sea of mourners millions across the country came out onto the streets nothing
7:09 am
like this has been witness in iran since the funeral of the founder of the islamic republic many 30 years ago the assassination of qassam so the money has united a country and its different political factions. street threatening to target to bring in cultural sites has encouraged even more defiance. to find life for him if we sacrifice our blood for him he still not enough. to think. you did you kill. them or the. iranians. it's ready. to go through the for a big event when. you on the streets of iran the event has reshaped the political dynamic. in november there were anti-government protests across the country but now the government. here have

7:12 am
iran's concern but the entire so-called axis of resistance a term used to refer to groups in iraq syria lebanon haven't and the palestinian territories he said it was up to those groups to decide if and how they would retaliate but the hezbollah leader hinted lebanon will not necessarily be an arena . lebanon is not a front line of america and iran's rivalry there is the u.s. embassy in a few soldiers who trained on me by hezbollah has a presence in the region i can take part in any outside the country. it now seems clear with the retaliation may involve iranian military commanders made the same threat and iran's allies in iraq have already singled out u.s. bases as targets and the u.s. presence in the region is in the words fair punishment has repeatedly threatened the regional war if iran is attacked by the united states iran will not stand alone
7:13 am
is what he's promised it is an expected statement of support from an ally. it has grown into a regional force photos are emerging of now stronger with still in many who the hezbollah leader called a brother he confirmed the late military commander was in lebanon before heading to baghdad via damascus while hezbollah doesn't hide its links with iran it is the strongest political player in lebanon it's careful to protect that power at a time of increasing pressures the conditions for success for recognition are up there because of the economic situation because they cannot cannot sustain what sort of are. awarded. likable to 2006. called suleiman his assassination a turning point and a new phase the message here may be one of defiance but in reality the u.s. maximum pressure campaign on iran and its allies seems to be already in
