8:03 am
in support of russia the 7th action of the us president is considered a military act of terrorism. but only if you want to know the disadvantage will have painful consequences for you wish and then the ripple effects are being felt already the parliament in neighboring iraq has voted to end the us military presence in the country some $5000.00 u.s. troops are stationed there on the streets of baghdad fears that instability will only get worse. at the market is a horrific miss fear they want us to live in chaos worse than what we live in now there will be more killings and the fight will move to iraq. and in lebanon the iran backed hezbollah militia threaten to hit american forces in the region a lot of the last kellyanne emily kiya american army bases battleships and every
8:04 am
american soldier in the region countries and in our lands i mean the american army killed kasim solo money and the others and it is the americans who will pay the price so be it that they're not all that well let me say a tall sum and. there's been no backing down on the american side in washington u.s. president donald trump threatened to hit tehran hard if iran strikes tweeting we have targeted 52 iranian sites representing the 52 american hostages taken by iran many years ago a reference to the. hostage crisis at the american embassy the fall of the 1979 iranian revolution a key event in the long running conflict between washington and tehran iran's announcement on sunday that it would no longer abide by the 2050 nuclear deal raises the stakes further but the widespread outrage on the street puts pressure on the government in tehran to show its standing up to the u.s. . let's bring in tyson barker here he's
8:05 am
a transatlantic analyst with the aspen institute here in berlin good to see you tyson so tell us is it any clearer now whether there is a coherent strategy behind the trunk administration's decision to kill some selling money i think everything that we're dealing with on the table is unclear right now both the decision to kill the money and the reaction to it what we have heard from reporting out of washington is that there were a range of options on the table in reaction to the attack on the u.s. embassy in baghdad and this was the most extreme and that was the one that was chosen to go with to the surprise of many in the national security community and the national security and intelligence apparatus in the u.s. government. now as the u.s. braces for retaliation from tehran and we're hearing that iran is planning some form of telly as we just don't want it don't know what it is president trump is now
8:06 am
threatening to strike iranian cultural sites which some say would be a war crime how does this reflect on america's image abroad what we're already starting to feel the range of instruments that iran has at its disposal in the region 1st this vote in the iraq he parliament the decision to withdraw from all of the conditions of the j.c.b. away and what's happening there in exactly the nuclear agreement. and what's happening within the anti isis coalition so we're already feeling the scramble that iran has at its disposal to kind of scramble the security situation in the region an acute attack specifically a security attack on a military installation that the u.s. has in the region or in the united states would would change the calculus an attack a counter attack on a cultural institution would be a vial it would be a war crime and many have noted that also in the united states including in
8:07 am
congress. iraq is also playing an element of his course the killings took place on iraqi soil iraq is now voted to expel all foreign troops including u.s. troops from its country the top administration says that if u.s. troops are expelled then the u.s. would retaliate with sanctions is this a further escalation we're seeing here. i mean clearly and the point is we're seeing a major shift in the relationship with the united states in iraq and the iran iraq relationship where it's tilting it's always been kind of push and pull between iran iraq and the united states in iraq where both are kind of the big players in iraq but we're talking more towards iran being more the let's say that iraq is more of a client state of iran and if the united states basically pushed out including a military presence in iraq that really changes the game for the united states
8:08 am
there tyson thank you very much tyson barker from the aspen institute here in berlin thank you. well nato ambassadors are holding an urgent meeting in brussels today to discuss the situation in the middle east following the soloman the killing earlier i asked our brussels correspondent teri schultz what position the alliance is taking nato would be very happy if it didn't have to take a position at all it doesn't like to get involved in matters like this but in fact it doesn't have a choice because nato has several 100 people on the ground in iraq in a training mission now this is a non-combat operation they are training and advising the iraqi ministry of defense and national security officials but those individuals were thought to be in danger now and need to came out the day after the silly money killing in said it was taking all necessary security precautions but at that point it was maintaining the training mission a day later it had to call it off and following that the coalition to defeat dice
8:09 am
that to defeat isis also called off its training mission so it's clear that the situation on the ground there simply can't sustain several 100 personnel from international institutions it's not clear what will happen with that training mission now and nato ambassadors will discuss what to do next whether to pull all of their citizens out of iraq as many governments have advised their people to do. and that was due to his teri schultz in brussels now turning to australia where bushfires are being described as a national catastrophe take a look at these skies turned orange from smoke fires are also having an impact beyond australia this is the scene in auckland new zealand 2000 kilometers away the australian bushfires have been raging for months but the last few days have been among the worst at least 24 people have died and thousands have
