9:32 pm
of the shootings that have happened the media has been totally silent about like el paso and in dayton ohio california it just went off the news after a couple days so we need to be defining what happened here and what's going on what are the ties here and so that way we can really sort of dressing it we need to start being more transparent about it on a global scale so we can start seeing our actual nation leaders working together rather than trying to tear each other apart that's what's going to start to make a change and power the people and really be able to take it back a reminder of our breaking news iran has found dozens of missiles that u.s. targets in iraq we'll have more right after this short break. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president. or some want to be rich.

democrats are already questioning donald trump strategy against iran presidential candidate joe biden said trump is quote bringing us dangerously close to starting another war and house speaker nancy pelosi warned against needless provocations from the u.s. administration since news of the attack broke there has been a 4 percent spike in the global oil price and the u.s. a federal aviation agency has banned all american civilian flights over the persian gulf meanwhile u.s. defense secretary marcus and secretary of state my pompei you have arrived at the white house and the white house says consultations are ongoing although president trump is not now expected to deliver an address despite reports. well as the missile strikes happened a spokesman for iran's supreme leader tweeted this image of the reigning flag and that is in the power reference a chance tweet of the us flag just before the assassination of major general kasim city money on channel. to a risk he's
9:36 pm
a contributor to the mideast news website al monitor he thinks it's collation with the u.s. could end up strengthening iran's position in the region. if this attack has led to another can say teletubbies then there is a danger for another american it's allegation and it could be like a snowball promises. to escalate so there are fatalities trying 11 second syrian to go into war with iran the same time it was not respond that will be perceived as a weak link so that puts him in a rather very rather difficult climate it was interesting this war that iran would only announce that it was beyond this attack you know saying very clearly that they're ready to take we've got the saints choosing iraq as the 1st location i think was very logical given the symbolism of that country particularly as it was on iraqi territory we're still in when he was assassinated it's the most
9:37 pm
significant stumble on is that that i mustn't be specifically he was visited by senior politicians are not many people was assassinated on iraqi territory where the other states have taken very very tough measures to protect their will susceptible to numerous measures were taken but it just shows that at this point any measures that they will swim to protect their forces in iraq it still might like to repeat the old hand iran can grab easily 'd targets that he was cool i think the war will out war is iraq robert actually i think that would be even worse than iran each side will try and win. you know what it when it comes to the region i think. will work everywhere else iran has regional alliance it has small law it has the popular mobilization as allies you know understand. the us on the other hand much more how many allies we have the iranians it was we've
9:38 pm
been pretty. for example saudi arabia is not a very capable military is round and. round but it's. america. so strategically speaking with one of look at allies of the position of each country i think iran has a clear vantage and and they're all going to all get russian likes to hear iran would be the one who will not be. bowing out bring you these live pictures from the state funeral of major general kasim sullivan the end it is happening in his hometown of command he was assassinated in 1000 u.s. drone strike in baghdad on january 3rd and that strike was all did by president trump and has been branded as an act of war by iran for 2 decades this command of iran's could force which is the external wing of the islamic revolutionary guard he played
9:39 pm
a crucial role in iran's military decision making process and helped expand the rounds role in the middle east he was also a leading figure in the fight against islamic state terrorists. earlier i spoke to artie's polis leah in tel aviv and caleb maupin in new york about the iranian missile strikes and the situation now unfolding in the middle east. paula let's start with you could you talk us through what's been happening and how all this is being viewed in israel where you are right now. well as you correctly say we know that more than a dozen ballistic missiles were fired by iraqi bases that howells u.s. troops one of them is not far from baghdad and the other one in we have received confirmation from the iraqi side that there are casualties amongst the iraqi forces but we're still waiting to hear whether or not there are any american soldiers who have been killed and we're being told that there's an assessment of the situation that's happening at the moment now the iranian revolutionary guards have taken
9:40 pm
responsibility they say that this is in the village for friday morning's assassination of the mommy and they've called the operation operation revenge. they've also threatened that if there's any kind of reaction from the united states they will be a severe response the words they use using is a more crushing response and they've also warned that if there's any kind of response from american allies in the region they too will be targeted so of course you have a talking about jordan saudi arabia kuwait and israel where i am as of yet no official reaction from the israeli side no doubt the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is being briefed and is meeting with the top security official on the israeli army has been on standby since friday morning particularly on the border in the north and the south of the country and this is in anticipation that should you use either of its proxies hamas in gaza or his beloved lebanon they will fire at israel and since in the mood here in the country over the past 23 days in
9:41 pm
talking to israelis many of them were expecting such an attack such a revenge attack but they thought it would come actually from one of the proxy groups and we are hearing from iran that if there is any kind of retaliation from israel has been we'll respond so we were on standby to see what will happen we are also on standby because there are threats coming from iran that there will be a 2nd. we waiting to see whether or not they're going to be. like this as i mentioned the rain in t.v. saying that a 2nd wave is imminent and we're waiting for official confirmation and if it's already official reaction from the region it's still quite publicly and start getting reaction in the next hour or so certainly concerning developments paula would be coming back to shore over the coming hours to get more on these breaking news developments kate i want to come to you in new york because so far the u.s. response has been somewhat music is and we're not expecting now an address from president trucks not after there were earlier rumors that he would be given to address the nation from the white house we now know that is not could you tell us
9:42 pm
what has been said so far in washington indeed this point we are not hearing any official announcement from the white house we have heard however that trump has been briefed on the situation and the trump is being briefed on what exactly has happened with this attack this is what we've heard from the white house staff let's take a listen. we are aware of the reports of attacks on u.s. facilities in the rock the president has been briefed and is monitoring the situation closely and consulting with his national security team. furthermore we do have interesting responses coming from members of the u.s. congress it's pretty clear that views regarding this attack and the escalation with iran the killing of qassam solomonic as well as now iran's response are not unified if you'll take a listen to these 2 views coming from marco rubio from the republican side and
9:43 pm
nancy pelosi from the democratic side it seems like they have very different assessments of who is responsible for this incident and what should happen next take a listen. closely monitoring the situation phone bombings targeting u.s. troops in iraq we must ensure the safety of all assume its members including that in the in his provocations from the administration and demanded that iran sees its violence and the world cannot afford war iran is now openly calling for americans to turn on each of the the time will come to debase u.s. policy tonight's american anomaly troops have come into direct attack by a nation state and americans must come together to support and protect them and respond appropriately now republican voices seemed to be praising the killing of qassam solomonic and saying it was a great decision by trump many democratic voices seem to be arguing that it was an unnecessary provocation so there seems to be clear divisions about this we'll be waiting to hear you know officially from the white house at this point no official
9:44 pm
address is planned but we'll be waiting for official word which most likely will come soon but at the moment the country seems quite mixed in how it's reacting to these ongoing events and earlier president backed down on the threat to destroy iran's cultural sites the u.s. leader caused global alone with a series of tweets and threats they which he said he iranian land most could be targeted if the country were to seek revenge for the assassination of major general sum of money but on tuesday trump said it washington would obey international law. we are according to various laws supposed to be very careful with their cultural heritage and you know what if that's what the law is i like to obey the law when earlier on tuesday the iranian parliament unanimously passed a bill designated the u.s. armed forces as a terrorist organization. full
9:45 pm
those who ordered this as well as the perpetrators of this crime the killing of general kassim son the money to disappear with the pentagon and then military i counted as terrorists. while staying in the middle east to let him and putin has paid an unexpected visit to syria for talks with president bashar al assad they discussed the volatile situation now unfolding in the middle east region. reports. this is let me have putin's 1st visit says syria since the year it's wednesday 17 and his arrival is there it comes amid tensions in the middle east following the killing off a top iranian military official in iraq after arrival according to vladimir putin's spokesperson he visited the russian command center in damascus where he held a meeting with president bashar assad and also received

9:47 pm
but critics branding the picture as racist and out of touch the gentleman has so far only been released in 4 countries with the rest of world getting to see it in 2 months time but here's a look at what is already getting people angry. but it's really blowing up yeah. every imaginable demographic gets their moment to be targeted and denigrated the only thing the gentleman finds worth celebrating is the white masculinity. a last forgivable blast from the past however it is a discomforting strain of racially based humor running through out reach its original script making flat punch lines of multiple characters. it's just a shame that guy ritchie falls back on his bad habits casual racism i don't know
9:48 pm
lynn and lack of female characters problematic but still very entertaining. would and i am being absolutely sincere much rather watch cats than the angry racist man that is the gentle. well we put this up for debates with political commentator david vance and social activist lead jasper. this is a sort of bygone bricks movie a sort of muscular reassertion all we can say what we like. and we don't give a damn what anybody thinks they can tell us about the most foul and disgusting racist language this was a movie about gangsters guess what really gun stores don't speak in politically correct balanced way is the. that's not we're going to do when we see movies like this is the following day when those racial epithets are repeated on the show treat
9:49 pm
that give cause for concern that. movie makers like guy should have a broader social conscience and responsibility is producing the arjan de doo if you want to see a margin grissom then that's fine you go and see it if we go to see a gangster movie you know we're not expecting to. find high a philosophy we're not expecting to experienced walk culture that's just reality i think is outdated he's outmoded and he's not reflecting the kind of future which is of a more inclusive sense of britishness nationalism you know here we are in 2020 and what we're experiencing over this movie is just an early flutter of walk culture of the perpetually offended black panthers one of the most successful movies in the world and it's successful economically for a reason i think i'm not in favor of any artistic law and the law i do think there
9:50 pm
should be greater diversity in the production and creative rooms quite amusing that you just referenced black panther and you went on then to talk of both diversity if i recall the black panther movie successfully there wasn't a huge amount of diversity in lot so if you want equality and i do then i think we have to have the fundamental right to have all opinions of all sorts heard saying and understood. i go back to our breaking news story now iran has fired dozens of missiles at bases housing u.s. forces in iraq the rainy minutes he's calling it a revenge operation for the death of major general kasim some of the money he was killed in a u.s. airstrike last week iran's foreign minister job had zarif has just released a statement saying quote we. do not seek escalation or war but will defend ourselves against any aggression and iran's minister of telecommunications is
9:51 pm
taking to twitter telling the u.s. to quote get the hell out of our region well earlier the pentagon confirmed that the assad base in western iraq and the herbal base in northern iraq had been hit those 2 facilities house u.s. and coalition forces alongside iraqi personnel and there are unfortunately reports of iraqi casualties in those strikes all of this follows iran's warning that it would hit u.s. targets in response to the death of its top general kassim sort of money was killed in a u.s. drone strike near baghdad on january 3rd the iranian military has named the ongoing operation martyr sort of money and warned that it could launch strikes inside the u.s. if america. meanwhile top u.s. to democrats are expressing their alarm over joel trump 6 gress of tactics against iran presidential candidate joe biden said trump is quit bringing us dangerously close to starting another war and house speaker nancy pelosi warns against needless provocations from the u.s. administration since news of the attack broke there has been
9:52 pm
a 4 percent spike in the global oil price and the u.s. federal aviation agency has banned all american civilian flights over the persian gulf the territories of iraq and iran and also the gulf of oman meanwhile u.s. defense secretary mark esper and secretary of state mike pompei have arrived at the white house and the white house says consultations and now ongoing although president trump is not now expected to deliver an address despite earlier reports. well that is that from us for now we are back at the top there with more breaking news and updates and other stories from around the world see that. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is often very dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful
9:53 pm
very critical time time to sit down and talk. through descriptions sound up the even for the owners. how to choose had food industry is telling us what to feed our pets really more based on what they want to sell us then was necessarily good for the pet turns out input food may not be a sophie people belief we have animals that have you know diabetes in arthritis they have auto immune disorders the cat allergies we are actually creating these problems it's a huge epidemic of problems all of them i believe can be linked to very simple problem of diet and some dog owners so heartbreaking stories about their pets streets to larger corporations are not very interested in proving or disproving the
9:54 pm
value of their food because they're already making it a 1000000000 dollars on it and there's no reason to do that research. shows seemed wrong when all all just all. belief yet to shape out disdain becomes to advocate and in the game equals a trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart. she says to look for common ground. plus. slim. lead.

list. and a very warm welcome to you watching on since last. here's a thought experiment and a bit of a prediction for 2020 going back to saudi aramco around town as it went public just recently at a market valuation an excess of $1.00 trillion dollars i think at one point was worth 2 trillion dollars i think that we're going to see them make a hostile buy of a company maybe facebook for example and it could be the 1st trillion dollar hostile raid in history because they've got the balance sheet now if you've got a 2 trillion dollars balance sheet that means you've got you know the ability to borrow another trillion so you've got a 3 trillion dollar war chest if you go after an apple or even
9:57 pm
a berkshire hathaway 5 or $600000000000.00 so i went inside the ram co by berkshire hathaway just as a hostile trade and then they own a huge portion of the whole global market the american market why not they've got the balance sheet now they want to diversify away from oil and gas and i think we're going to see a move like that the next 6 to 9 months. to 6. both the harmony who created on vibrating strings that is chemistry chemistry is the melody the melodies you can play in strings what is the universe the universe is is a symphony of strings. you know world big quarter so. a lot of things you can see yours it's time to wade to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting
