8:03 pm
a co money city with almost no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal was assured that there was a lot of these people as survivors of a while disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in the million years i would see that and it's happened it's happened. at white for many clubs over the years so i know the guy even saw god's. football isn't only about what happens on the pitch to the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money just billionaire owners and spending two to twenty million fly a. book it's an experience like nothing else on the. because i want to share what i
8:04 pm
think what i know about the beautiful guy my great so what more chance for. peace this morning. as you read the stand and hear from us and. move on one small. part of a good hour on our show at the fair are rather democrats that are before the fourth that america has a. i'm going to let them but i don't cut him any cut and that and keep an eye on what i have seen as a child with a profile that it will never. be about alone then i'm wanting my michelle the downside of. my the. number set up around the hey how you
8:05 pm
want to do it. and get this whole full plate choice the i knew you had an unfair last time in syria has said. to these she ought to have a. model for them after the whole fuck around with mr hates it for jim and lawyer for hope that our family in the course. of the money. now we're back with dr of the west and member of the iraqi parliament and the former national security advisor talking about post i says iraq and the middle east . there are about five thousand five hundred u.s.
8:06 pm
train and assist troops in iraq currently that i says is no more serious military force should they stay or should they go are iraqi forces fully capable of maintaining security by themselves. we need. american help american military help only air force over the last four years we honestly we don't need any gun force from from and the any and the country in the world including the united states of america. what we need we need. is not a fighting force. and the number of american troops now in the country is. with their own admission they said it's just under ten thousand i don't i don't think we need this more than the few
8:07 pm
hundred to how plus in training i believe that. the the ready to go back home i think as far as we're concerned we don't we will not need any and the and we will we said this right from day one i really don't. want anybody or i remember you saying back in twenty fourteen and you were very forcefully saying that there should be no forum but it's only ground in iraq during this war. there is always the foreign boots on the ground in iraq whether you want it or not the americans to iranians the turks so is it ok for you to see for him what's on the ground at this point and if not that what should they be asked to leave right away how does that work. i beg to differ with you mom i said from day one four four years ago we will need it we will not need any
8:08 pm
fighting force on the ground because we want to have the credit and the honor of liberating our own territory with our own iraqi security forces but going back to your question there are no military force. a myth from iran on the. absolutely no iranian military force on on iraqi on iraqi territory this is number one now number two the turks have been illegally. present up north in the in one of the come the military come and we have asked them and we have requested that and we said this is important of the iraqi sovereignty. in iraq independence you should leave and i think they should leave a soon as possible they we don't need them we have never used them we have no need
8:09 pm
them we've never asked them to come to the country while on the in the on the contradiction of that the iranians we have asked them to send us some advisors and they have some of us some advisors some some some plain those. we've used them on did we go back home these are we're talking about hundreds less than a hundred of the iranian advisors and military. military trainers in iraq but compared to the several thousand just under ten thousand of americans that's a completely different kettle of fish mom ok but let's say iran helped save five died from isis takeover and then helped iraq his take was saul send advisors like you've sat they certainly sent materials now that the fight against isis is in its final hour are the iranians just going to go home i mean what kind of gratitude can
8:10 pm
they call fact they surely didn't just help you out of a good will and we'll ask nothing in return that doesn't work this way. well they came to save baghdad did it with the material they have supplied in in june two thousand and fourteen and when they separated it within twenty four hours the the and also they have sent the advisors to the country this has sent train those to the the popular mobilization forces so the. day i did you go back home i don't think we would need them if we if we were if you ask him if we ask them to go back home they will go back home but they are not and they had not gotten there are not enough police there only in the pub but we know more such as your my question was about what's about a different thing what do you think the iranians will ask iraq in return for their help they certainly didn't just help you because they're kind and nice people they
8:11 pm
will want something in return as a favor while. old most of the materials that have provided and weapons and munitions that have built us for it they send their invoices it and it out because it has paid some and is in the process of paying the rest so this these are no not free of charge these are not three b.'s if you like. the the training i don't think that then it would cost us money or the advice it they would it would not cost us money. of course that out of if you would have fed into the political influence of iran in iraq iran has a vet that are so many friends it. of iran in the iraq and the in the among the shadows and among the sunnis and among the kurds so that the and the iran is the first country which recognize the new iraq after two thousand and three. it
8:12 pm
on has always supported the is the political process and the constitution of that i and the seven day of iraq. but we have a very intimate relationship with iran with iran we have. our relationship with iran is not only strategic but if you like it symbiotic. i hear each country is it is dependent on other but let me ask you more woodchip question iraq like you've sat has a very special relationship with iran almost symbiotic also has a very special relationship with the united states those two countries as of today are at odds and we don't even know what's going to happen with trump being president how will baghdad balance it out i mean and share it receives help from both while there is a very there's a very difference there's a difference between the relationship with iran which is symbiotic and the
8:13 pm
relationship with the us which is thirty chick we have a started you could. partnership agreement with it with the with the united states of america and do this unfortunately they have not fulfilled it in two thousand and thirteen and two thousand and twelve but they will after we are asking for help in two thousand and fourteen and june two thousand and fourteen after i says don't do the country and occupy three or four provinces they were left until how was that and they have imposed a political. price for it for the for their health and thus change your government changes your policy change your strategy and who come and help you so that not likely they are the terry president is going to washington leverage over iraqi decisions how do you stay fully independent when you rely on foreign powers for
8:14 pm
your security that's a that's a very tricky situation. i certainly agree with you that the only way forward is to build a strong united independent sovereign country to deter the neighbors from any. interference or intervention in our internal affairs and not to not depending on. the international superpower and that is the way forward the way forward is as an iraqi nationalist strong government united independent sovereign country which is which with their own the country with with our own people. and i don't know if you know him it's a cia agent who interrogated saddam hussein and he said that if we're saying remain in power no isis could have ever popped up in iraq do you still feel now that
8:15 pm
removing the dictator was really poorest all of this like suicide bombing and civil war all destruction and blood chad when you weigh all the pros and cons ears after. i totally disagree with the anti terrorism was all over the world well before of the overthrow of saddam hussein since saddam hussein the that's why i said in the terrorism the the eruption of terrorism in syria and iraq was how out by some of our neighbors because they wanted to bring down the syrian regime and they wanted to bring down the democratic regime in iraq the new democracy in iraq because it's that i can threaten their own government because they see democracy as a catching disease if you like and it crosses the borders without and without the
8:16 pm
permission without a visa and that's it that's where they were frightened by a dead democracy democracy in iraq and did a freedom of speech in iraq and freedom of thought in iraq and this is a new parliamentary system constitutional system in iraq that's why i think the brought it against iraq and they have they have isis with money they have i said we're just if they're out isis with with and then the how isis with the ideology and it whether on both sides of the border on their own side of the syrian iraqi borders. that's why i say. in the. first of the game back to iraq. was all right dr all right yeah thank you very much for being with us on this program today and
8:17 pm
for giving us your point of view. rather than me we're talking very big. problem and terry and the former national security adviser discussing iraq's efforts not to slide back into bloodshed after extremists are driven out that's it for this edition of. here's what people have been saying about redacted the night of the sixth it's full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch oh yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same but we are
8:18 pm
apparently better than blue the thing that is a paper you never heard of love redacted the night president of the world bank so very. seriously he sent us an e-mail. yes it was but with a large applause you can. help remove the last. word so will the young come we will all soon but you know one of the most often little bushes i saw. him going to do the. scouts. leave the who cooks police. chief police easy show reason to the edge. of the world but. the secret of the armor issue you can you get other corners of the mob boss may be getting us all but
8:19 pm
you're using my suspicion of us they. prescribe medication is widespread on the us market and a frequent cause of death at that point in my life. like everything was ashes my family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit some site watch all who has made antidepressants so commonly used we were doing what the doctors told us to do we were being responsible and what the real side effects. was terminally alter what i did. it was done on a cocktail of legal drugs. just because something's legal doesn't mean it's something. we're told a secret society existed within the f.b.i. with the sole intent to undermine canada and then later president donald trump also we're told the f.b.i. last text messages from members of this secret society with russia gave rapidly
8:20 pm
losing steam we now have f.b.i. get. president trump economic success is promotes his america first vision takes a swipe at the media during an address to political and business leaders. i believe in america i will always put america first america is rolling his future has never been brighter. wiki leaks chief julian assange seeks to get his u.k. arrest warrant overturned if his appeal is successful he could walk free from the ecuadorian embassy in london in early february after more than five years in. the u.s. accuses turkey of destabilizing northern syria with its military offensive against the kurdish militias while there is
8:21 pm
a crisis of trust with. your tuning in from right around the world this hour welcome to moscow and to our international my names you know we begin in switzerland where. speaking at the pro globalization world economic forum to a group of political and business elites the u.s. president used his address to talk up his vision of protectionist trade policies tax cuts and deregulation as well as eliminate the media is there for us. well probably to no one's surprise whatsoever trump's speech did feature his signature phrase of america first and his speech is actually rounding out the end of the forum let's take a quick listen to what he had to say i believe in america i will always put. the
8:22 pm
first when the united states grows so does the world america is roaring back america is a cutting edge. that's what we're doing in america and the results showed unmistakable america's future has never been brighter i will always put america first i believe in america to come to america where you can innovate create and build now that pretty much wraps up his whole speech which centered on progress that's been made in the u.s. in the presence of opinion since he came to the white house he touched specifically on the booming stock market on the recent tax reform that he signed and the progress against eisel he also went on to say that leaders should be cheerleaders for their own countries and that he's a cheerleader for the u.s. and that's easy for him because he loves the country so much now of course trump being trump he didn't forget to mention the media during his time on the stage
8:23 pm
let's take a quick listen as a businessman i was always treated really well by the press you know the numbers speak and things happen but i've really had a very good press and it was until i became a politician that i realized how nasty how mean how vicious and how fake. the press can be as the cameras start going off in the back. now perhaps those booing at trump's comments didn't hear the recommendation that his transportation secretary gave to people earlier this week feel very flattered that he has chosen this as a forum. for those that don't want to listen to him you can they can leave term speech was highly anticipated and according to reports lines were out the door hours before it even started and here at this economic forum trump in true businessman fashion used the opportunity to promote himself and his country. riffing on the wiki leaks editor julian assange has launched an appeal to get his u.k.
8:24 pm
arrest warrant overturned if his legal challenge is successful he may soon be able to walk free from the ecuadorian embassy in london where he's been living for the past five and a half years want to see a trick and it is across the developments. brewer twists and turns in the seemingly endless and extremely legally complicated case of julian a songe the wiki leaks founder has been holed up inside the secretariat embassy in london for over five and a half years now a crucial lawyer hearing has taken place in london today where a judge is considering julian assange his appeal for a potential lifting over the rest warrant based off of his alleged breach of bill conditions back in two thousand and twelve now the latest understanding that we have is that decision might come not sooner than a week from now the announce date so far seems to have been february sixth where we will learn more about the fate of the julian assange case if the judge does decide to rule in his favor potential new doors will be open for himself and his legal team to consider in terms of how to move forward with his case and hopefully
8:25 pm
eventually get him out of this embassy here it has to be said of course that british officials have said time and time again that they would arrest julian assange were he to walk out of this embassy of course his concern was that he would potentially be extradited to the u.s. where he's not favored very much given the work of weiqi leaks that has been exposing some of the activities of the u.s. government and of course all of that said the reason that this situation unraveled kind of in the first place was because swedish officials wanted to follow him following potential alleged sexual abuse concerns now what is important is that those have been long lifted now so julian assange arguments in this latest case to have the arrest warrant lifted is that those have been dropped so any potential alleged breach of bail conditions should also be lifted crucially of course we have to say that organizations such as the united nations have said that his detention is arbitrary and in violation of international law and doreen officials here in
8:26 pm
london have raised concerns about his potential well being seeing the situation of him staying holed up behind sort of inside four walls for so long is obviously not . according to them so lots of questions now in terms of where this case will move forward obviously what's crucial as well is that within the last month jorian officials have granted julian assange ecuadorian citizenship also raising lots of questions about the possibility of potentially him being granted diplomatic status which could make it easier for him to get out of the u.k. but all of those questions really yet to be answered as this hearing continues and now all eyes are going to be on what this judge decides in the weeks to come here in london. washington has accused turkey of destabilizing northern syria with its military incursion is currently tearing our town offensive against the u.s. by kurdish militia groups they're pushing closer to positions held by american
8:27 pm
troops turkey is seeking to clear the border area of what it sees as terrorist forces here said the u.s. state department has commented on the situation people now have to flee an area that was previously considered pretty stable and what a shame that is think about all that this country has been through and now we're looking at another destruction in northwestern syria because turkey has taken its eye off the ball isis and going after. at this time. the weapons have been provided to the white p.g. by the united states the americans haven't kept their promise since. lately trump statements saying that they won't give any weapons to the y.p. genie and then saying that we are not giving them any during last night's telephone conversation and created a crisis of trust. well the phone call mentioned there by turkey's foreign minister has also been a source of tension with claiming what was discussed has been mis represented by washington. president trump relayed concerns the escalating violence in africa
8:28 pm
syria risks undercutting i shared goals in syria he urged turkey to deescalate limited military actions and avoid civilian casualties the white house statement about the content of the phone call between trump an attic and were probably drafted before the conversation took place because it did not reflect the truth or washington correspondent samir account looks deeper now at the worsening relationship between the u.s. and turkey no matter how many times washington says encore its ally the reality is far from it as distrust between the two grows stronger u.s. turkish relations are headed south. turkey is an important nato ally we understand fully understand turkey's concerns should go to. america is in the process of creating a terrorist. america do not encroach on
8:29 pm
a border do not provoke cos we will run outs of patient. this has led to consequences on the ground in monday if the turks and the kurds came so close to each other they were almost at each other's throats and then washington literally had to step in to prevent the fighting but no lessons learned clearly especially considering the turkish campaign against the kurds in a free and right now. don't be friends of kurds if you want to keep good relations isn't the only signal washington missed. the coup attempt back in two thousand and sixteen made things worse there's the local way and turkish cleric living in exile in the us and grow things glenn orchestrated and demands that the us extradite him. and recognizing jerusalem as israel's capital didn't do their relations any good either and it even created an opening for air to want to grab the throne as leader of the muslim world to assistance to watch. trump why are you backing israel
8:30 pm
whether it's ok patient torture and terrorism is that what you were defending one would think that the us would take the theory of their ally into consideration before making any rash decisions but instead of treading carefully washington to cut aid to all of the countries opposed to the jerusalem solution the most important problem between what's theirs and talk is that is that there is no you know nobody you know trusts their other one this is the main problem for tricky especially talking people government never rely on never trust in. you not to states and especially in middle east and issues. so whether this is all been delivered or not washington has only been tangling this not further and further. functions of men but was written by former pentagon chief donald rumsfeld being made public they cover a surprising.
