5:30 am
i gave to sex offender who was not even going to justice or put on the registry this is simply an hour in violence male sexual predators for the large part of target whoever is there whether that's men or women. below and welcome to cross talk for all things are considered labelle again we stand on the brink of war we should not be surprised the fish will washington was quick to blame iran for the attack on saudi energy assets iran has denied involvement while the who have claimed responsibility will try to take the neocon bait and set the middle east on fire.
5:31 am
talking trump and a rant i'm joined by my guest mohammad marandi in total and he's a professor at the university of tehran in riyadh we have brought him he is a saudi analyst and in miami we cross the nicholas davies he's an independent journalist a researcher for code pink as well as author of blood on our hands the american invasion and destruction of iraq right gentlemen cross-talk rules in effect that means you can jump in and any time you want i always appreciate when he let me go to you in. iran is being a being called the culprit in all of this i just as i was sitting out in the studios c.n.n. is reporting that the saudi government and washington have a very high probability that iran did this it instead of the pointing fingers here i don't have to ask i think a far more germane question who benefits from this attack on saudi energy assets who is the beneficiary go ahead mom and. no one benefits except for perhaps the
5:32 am
israeli regime but at the end of the day i think the solution to all this is for the saudis to end the war in yemen the saudis have been carrying out atrocities for 4 and a half years now they've been bombing school buses army schools hospitals ambulances weddings funerals and they've been starving the country with the help of western countries and they've been given all the weapons that they need to carry out these atrocities by europeans by the americans during previous administrations current the current administration it's i mean across europe and north america they are guilty of war crimes and of course the saudi regime is at the top of the list because they're carrying it out itself so that the story that needs to be this fuss is the soul of the aggression against the country if that comes to an end if the
5:33 am
saudis recognize the rights of the people of yemen and all of this come center and the yemenis have become increasingly capable sophisticated their drone and missile capabilities have been evolving during this period of time and they've been hitting harder and better at some of the installations and infrastructure and the saudis have lost the war in the south as well the this so these and them are ati's by through their proxies are basically at each other's throats so the real issue is that the atrocities in yemen must come to an al-qaeda and i don't buy this story how well it will missiles came from iran yeah over the persian gulf without the americans and being able to say you know it's not it's really a it's really amazing from the americans that any military is rubbish it's remains just when you need to see something they don't have eyes in the sky apparently that's a topic for. another program here welcome and let me go to you how do you react to
5:34 am
what mohamed had to say isn't it time because a war is a failure is only misery and destruction isn't it time for saudi arabia to end its conflict in yemen and withdraw and maybe even pay reparations go ahead in riyadh. i really don't understand why a persian is talking about another arab country what do we have with the with the yemen it's basically we have borders and we when we are in yemen based on the government request in order to sustain the country on the south of saudi arabia to have a sea of. sale arabia it's been about i don't have that but it's been a failure let's listen we don't we don't know yet vietnam how many years it took iraq and iran how so let's not shift shift the subject from iran attacking yet again rabia and take it get to we make the solution and the key for the solution in yemen let's be very careful how we address
5:35 am
a plea and what isn't the solution it's very end to the war isn't that the solution to it is that there are no sir no sir the solution of iran is not the end of the war the yemen iran has been doing this for a number as a few years since 1979 iran has been sunday well militias and ok. let's stay let's stay in syria stay and let's stay with the facts ok you're a government in the u.s. government have a very high probability there is position but the fact of the matter is that your country has destroyed one of the poorest countries in the world that is a fact and you have not won militarily let me go over to nicholas in miami how do you respond so far to what we've heard in the program nicholas in miami. well i i would i would respond to oc. by i really though that we should all remember how this war began.
5:36 am
president hadi was only installed as president of yemen for a 2 year term for the purpose of writing a new constitution and holding new elections the who sees invaded and placed him under house arrest demanding that he do his job they did not deploy as him as president. and it was only after he fled to aden and then to riyadh and. you know i'm not sure whether it was his idea or probably the saudis idea to suggest to him. that he should. adopt some sort of napoleon complex and claim to that he was still the president of yemen so on the pretext of. you know of
5:37 am
restoring. a failed failed regime to power in yemen as as you said very well peter the saudis with. their coalition which includes the united states and so you know president obama and president trump. are entirely complicit in these war crimes and should also be held accountable for them. they have destroyed. one of the poorest countries in the world according to act lead in the u.k. their latest report from june has counted 90000 people killed in the war in yemen and that does not count a child dying of hunger and disease every 10 minutes. the yemen data project run by british journalist iona craig has found that about one 3rd
5:38 am
of the saudi led airstrikes are in fact against civilian targets and so. the whole point i. conclude hang on nicholas i'm part of the program is jumping as i say i'm going to jump in here john when are we are we all are we on the program to take my you're my time and you put your own thoughts i'm talking about iran you're talking we're going to talk on your own you're talking i'm talking you're talking about time to talk like that because i'm on the i'm not talking about yemen over here i came over the program you're a producer go talk to us to come go talk about it while you're going out of your time complaining why don't you make your argument but make your argument don't you i mean i argue i'm a go ahead argument it's about i'm not doing up time but you need to be fair and balanced like your agency but anyway so what i'm talking about is iran has all the footprint prints on the ethical 4 gig ok and this is a distraction for the world economy there is saudi arabia has some challenges in
5:39 am
the region these challenges i worked with the international community if yemen is an issue we could have if we have the bad intention in yemen we could have done $100000000000.00 and we have the whole tribes killing each other. but we don't like this saudi arabia is not in the business well you have it in business you have bought and held a lot of money and you've got nothing for it except the yeah the distribution the solution of iran not to interfere in the region my friend is to stop iran from inflating in our other countries and a raise iran for what it's called it's persia they have nothing to do with the arab race they have nothing to do with lebannon they are killing innocent people in syria and there is a 40 militias that ring the militias in iraq spending the iranian people money is wrong to kill other people look at all countries that saudi arabia has stepped in and supported look at egypt look at lebanon look at iraq now we're building stadium to it giving them money in yemen we are trying to restore them so we can build them
5:40 am
again there is challenges we are not angel and stop putting perfect carry on sorry let me let me go if it to me let me go to mohammed into round would you like to reply to that go ahead moment. well some of what he said sounds somewhat racist and i won't go down that road but i think your viewers notice by it's well he did that twice obviously people in the region don't agree with him at all in lebanon or in iraq or in syria or in yemen because they are resisting saudi aggression they're resisting saudi backed extremism the saudis have taken their own agent and levanon the prime minister and beat him they have kill their citizen who's been on this show me in their consulate in turkey. they have been massacring people in yemen for 4 and
5:41 am
a half years and forcing them on starvation being have created a bomb blockade against tad who was their allies just until a few years ago this is a regime that is carrying out aggressive acts against its arab neighbors so and the fact that the saudi regime according to wiki leaks according to hillary clinton's e-mails has been supporting isis is another point altogether so and i would like to add to what your other guest had pointed out that he was not only a supposed to be in power for 2 years his 2 years were over he stayed on he was not legitimate just because the saudis at that time had influence and other countries thought that the saudis would win this war within a couple of weeks they got their way and force the in much of the western
5:42 am
countries the western countries more or less to support. the illegitimate president but he's never been in the capital for the last 4 and a half years he was never elected he was the only candid. in the election and he was supposed to be in power for 2 years and he stayed on after 2 years ok mohamed so i was not only don't i got a job many are your just and gentlemen i just want to about one point i have to go to a break gentlemen have your short break we'll continue our discussion on trump and around stay with arctic. you know world of big partisan movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than
5:43 am
ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bats 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 watching close watching the hawks. good morning. the worst. that's for sure. laws don't equal. recall no when it is it's always you know the false so just like your risk on that you can sleep. with bullets at them some months it was the last i was there lots and lots to know something so good on him it's a good video of the condition of the song sit on me she's on that sound a soft spot will not keep you down this time i don't tufts.
5:44 am
needed someone. only wonderful committed to defeat the contingent communities as you can pull the ripples for the way. you see them. the only one still has the right. good night nothing. doing.
5:45 am
welcome back across the uk where all things are considered i'm peter lavelle remind you we're discussing trump and red. ok let's go back to riyadh madam cup title in this program locked in loaded would you like to see the united states committed a military strike against iran. of course not we are not in the position to lose anything iran has nothing to lose look at look at those look at the how much they give you interest to put in the bank look at the property offer you on the saudis and the saudi government and the people we have a pretty good deal we are moving forward we are part of the g. 20 we have the g. 20 this year we are doing very well we're talking a lot of foreign money into saudi arabia we definitely don't want to war we don't want to go that route we want iran to contain by international communities we don't want to see the iranian people suffer because we know how much they are suffering.
5:46 am
inside their ruthless devil is to reach we would like the iranian people to have the same deal we have so no we don't want war with iran but saudi arabia has the final say on when to start and launch and retaliate on what iran has been several 100 times attack the so your hero you want to say you want to see the country only more so you want to see your country involved in a military strike against iran i just one clarification of what you just said peter peter peter my lips i don't want my country to be involved in war with iran is it clear i'm saying iran needs to be contained by a military order by the world or the by united nations and the politics man or is it. yeah well you're talking about the international law but you either legally invaded and yet national jobby does i don't tell me about international law ok i'm going to go to notice i'm not i said i don't want to act i'm not rostering i and
5:47 am
everyone is going to get the equal amount of time nickel and i go to you know what is your concern go ahead nicholas in miami. well you know i think that. as long as. we here in america can prevent trauma from actually. you know a year. saying this is a cause for war and launching launching military strikes on iran which we which really could very quickly escalate into you know an unstoppable regional war. as long as we can prevent that happening in the next few days. then i think i think the fact that the strike at the heart of saudi arabia in this way. may actually be.
5:48 am
you know an opportunity for peace military analysts. as somebody yes exactly as as somebody else said. you know the saudis got international support for this war because people assume to they could easily defeat the. yemenis who thiis. you know how many times has the world been wrong about these wars in the last 20 years every time you know the u.s. or its allies launch a war. you know it has turned turned out to have been far more bloody and drawn out and horrific and destroy fake than they bargained for and and but you know what does a rabia have to gain now by continuing to escalate the war.
5:49 am
you know there is strong pressure now to get here to get the u.s. out of this war trying to had to veto a war and how israel shameless shallow resolution shame when it would would put congress back in charge of of issues of war and peace which is part of their constitutional role and they have really the house has to reintroduce that resolution as part of the military budget for 2020 as long as the senate goes along with that then trump will be faced with a choice between either. either accepting an end to the u.s. role in the in the war in yemen or vetoing the entire military budget that is the position we want to put him in. and and so the you know there is a major push back in you know from the more progressive members of congress plus
5:50 am
for. and paul of course in the senate. to and including some several of the democratic presidential candidates bernie led by bernie sanders to actually curtail you know the vital u.s. support for this horrific war and so this this this development may be a catalyst as you said more that mohamed i mean again they haven't disproven the who. did this and it would be under international law an act of. resistance from foreign invasion but it tells me also it's quite embarrassing for saudi arabia that after all the hundreds of billions of dollars is spent on defense they can't fight against homemade drones i mean this is quite a remarkable thing and if they can do it once i suppose they could do it again and i think it is a signal that this war must come to an end even mediately because this could well
5:51 am
use the word again the same word catalyst again but it could be a catalyst for something far far worse isn't this a wake up call go ahead moment. so we're supposed to believe that hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent by the saudis for a military capability which is focused on iran in the persian gulf and then we have all sorts of american and western bases in the persian gulf as well you have american naval ships in the persian gulf and make cannot attack drones and missiles flying from iran across the persian gulf and so forth so he targets that's that's ridiculous no one is going to believe that no one no sane person will believe that and if they can't detect these missiles then they should leave and they should stop selling their weapons because there jumped on the other hand the americans have a huge presence in iraq and they have a huge intelligence gathering program in iraq because they occupied the country for
5:52 am
so many years if they have agents all over the country and then they have bases in the in the northern persian gulf region as well and of course there may be so the americans if they can't detect anything coming from the north either then the same is true they should just leave and they should stop selling weapons the reality is that the saudis are waging a cruel and inhumane and barbaric war with the support of western countries obama is a war criminal and so are other western leaders current and past they are war all war criminals and they are part of this war this war has to come to an end if this so is do not want to be hurt they have to stop killing arabs because you're your guests and we are speaks about arabs in a sort of in a racially distinct way they have to stop killing arabs whether they're in syria whether they're in iraq whether they're in. yemen or whether they're and they
5:53 am
should not be threatened by so to arabia and of course i'm not going to talk about north africa and the role that the saudis are playing there but one final thing that i'd like to point out and that is the united see. has to recognize that iran and its regional partners and allies whether it's from the mediterranean to the red sea to central asia to the hindu kush they are very powerful and if the united states thinks that they can strike at the iran and get away with it they're badly mistaken they have any. small attack on iran will have a disproportionate response from the country and b. this will lead to a catastrophic situation the oil and gas insulations in the region will be destroyed if the if if the yemeni resistance can do what they did to the saudis and this wasn't their 1st attack by the way if they and they are becoming more and more developed if they can do this with the saudis imagine what the iranians put easily
5:54 am
do to the saudis and the emirates means they would bring down these sunni regimes immediately and then when war takes place you think that people in yemen the forces of the yemeni government and the resistance will not push into saudi arabia and the people in iraq who have so many grievances against saudi arabia for their support for isis for all those years you think they're not going to push into northern sodhi rabia the americans will not be able to contain such a catastrophic situation and you will have millions upon millions of people sleeping in the region and it will make the syrian refugee crisis look like a small stream this would be like a really really complex let's go let's go to reality here we're going to require the global economy and no and the americans and their empire will collapse ok let's go to our command in riyadh i mean i'm committed and i know you're not the saudi government but what is victory how do you define victory in yemen how would you define that if it were to come to pass. who said there is victory in the m.
5:55 am
and i said one who said there is another no i'm not going to i'm asking you what do you mean those and what would it mean to have fig tree but what would it mean to you. we just need the people of yemen and there is a government there for yemen when they reach the solution and you take all the terrorists hand and the people who want to overthrow the legitimate government that's sitting south of saudi arabia with the border when they get all into a political solution and they come and the coalition says that with all the international community then everybody is going to call this. a skill ation off so this is where the mandate of saudi arabia we are not interested in going there on cmax rogerson want i just happen to your borders and there yemen ok i didn't really hear that mahmoud what do you want to say go ahead. i was just saying that m.r. proxies in yemen are attacking the supporters the saudis backed groups in
5:56 am
yemen right. there you mentioning the yemenis. you have mentioned i'm going back to your source then you know you can take the lead and you actually can capitalize on that because all your sources are from wiki leaks so i don't blame you if you come up with this daydream statements and ideas i don't know what you can about we going back to i'm not talking about that allow you have that we have them i'm not on the last. general that i'm getting. i want to go to miami last 30 seconds go to her right ok i try to every 2nd 32nd it's my necklace take a left to go ahead peter keep that in mind peter keep going to be 1st well i have for your viewers remember this they said just before you. have a member of the faith of. number our embassies that you burn remember all the person 8 i don't have a radio you. really are

5:58 am
somewhere near about half a 1000000 women have now been sexually assaulted in the us military rape is a very very traumatizing thing tat happen but i've never seen trauma like i've seen women who are veterans who have suffered military sexual trauma reporting rape is more likely to get the victim punished don't be offended i had an almost 10 year career or chose very invested in and i gave that up to report a sex offender who was not even put to justice or put on the registry this is simply an issue of our in violence male sexual predators for the large part of target whoever is there to prey upon whether that's a man or woman. the world is driven by shaped by one person or those with.
