support weapons and training to being terrorists to attack america as well let's review the process of the f s a's evolution as the syrian conflict escalated they were presented as a soft force to counter the quote brutal regime of bashar al assad western journalist even visited them they are former syrian soldiers they say they refused orders to fire on their own countrymen a few months alongside to take up arms against the assad regime there are pretty gnarly bunch for a soft force but who pays attention to these details western media fell in love with them and their commander solemn interest even got a surprise visit from john mccain the u.s. senator slipped across syria's borders so he could meet with america's dream team fighting against the syrian government and sense then solemn even appeared on major to. networks in the united states i spoke with general salim idriss just moments ago he's head of the free syrian army i spoke earlier today to rebel leader general

got the syrian national army this is a totally new organization with dozens of different factions $80000.00 total fighters approximately and guess who the minister of defense is well you guessed it it's major solomon idris but he's got a completely new script now he is no longer a big fan of the stars and stripes as the syrian conflict twists and turns you have to ask yourself who is the united states going to end up supporting next and how long until they turn against the united states again this incident at the very least. destabilizing the presence of american speed and also the support for these groups like the so-called syrian national omi which consists or do people who quite aggressive jihad to use and so it's been ones convenience and now it's become inconvenient. for that how do this who have seen that yes the americans have abandoned the kurds who they disliked but of course they fear that they too will be controlled but they didn't really think about who their friends were who they were

look at the huge protest movement he is facing for the short break. the people who are printing the money don't rely on taxes to get wealthy they're not part of the real economy that's a that's the same thing as saying that rulers of saudi arabia rely on the way. ages of the people living in saudi arabia to get rich they they don't they just print more or pump more oil in the america the princes that run our economy just print more money they don't need the workers they don't need their taxes that's why they don't have wage growth that's why there's been that this aeration has their own need. the world is driven by shaped.
thinks. we dare to ask. hello again with yet another technique of rum has taken a step further from the hard brokered 2015 year career deal the announcement was made by president hassan rouhani he says iran will wind the program done again if sanctions are lifted. in asia out to my ordered the department of energy to begin
the working on the centrifuges starting from tomorrow. just like the previous ones out is reversible our work will be conducted under the supervision of the international atomic energy agency. that on monday iranian officials also announce the they had double the number of advanced centrifuges the country holds it all comes as a round suffers under us such as iran so it's also losing patience and a longer wait for europe to come to its a straight germany's foreign minister sees the whole agreement is now in jeopardy. we said this is unacceptable so ultimately iran is doing nothing less than putting the entire nuclear agreements at risk and that is why we expect iran to return to full compliance with its obligations. and just some background to remind you the iran nuclear deal was signed back in 2015 it took 9 years of painstaking talks to
secure russia china the u.k. germany france the us all signatories to it now under its terms sanctions by the international community were to be lifted in exchange for tehran freezing its nuclear program it was hailed as a landmark agreement ending more than a decade of strife with iran but in may last year the u.s. you know lost 3 pulled out of the agreement despite criticism from european allies donald trump describe the deal as florida and subsequently impose sanctions on iran since then the other signed up nations to it have been struggling to keep the spirit of the deal alive but professor of politics side 100 marandi told us that european countries should be doing a lot more. well the problem is not just the united states is the europeans because contrary to what the german official said it is the iranians who have been abiding by the nuclear deal for over a year and
a half now whereas the europeans have been in complete violation americans toward the agreement and trump has been putting pressure on the europeans europeans so they are effectively pursuing the same policy as the united states unless the europeans grow a backbone and unless they abide by their obligations the iranians have no other option but to gradually exit the agreement and so far we don't see the europeans growing a backbone and it's not good for them internationally because the international community sees the europeans as. ineffective and basically subordinate to the united states. pressure is being ramped on pakistani prime minister in iran can. only to demand his resignation they say he only came to power because last year's election was rigged and accused him of flawed economic policies the leader of the protest movement is set to meet government officials this tuesday the
demonstrations began in the southern city of karachi there on 10 days ago progress towards the capital a slum about those protesting or pushing for another election to be done for the army tremaine of the process initially the prime minister was given until sunday to quit an additional 24 hour extension of. reportedly expired meantime protest leaders say about the movement will continue until their demands are met. continue this protest and to throw these illegal rulers out of power they must realize their rule is over your mandate and government has no more mandate now. but for some insight into the events unfolding in pakistan we're joined by geo political expert java gorani who is in islamabad good to see you. what triggered this protest movement from religious leaders what was the main aspect of it.
or. what triggered what we're seeing the protests what was the main aspect of it job it. what i can or gather from your question is it seems they do just bark do you bitch is. or from the big dog protest. or. that's what they want and that these are the election goes down really well. we're live. on. present and the 2nd that you are you hot. mama some scum good friend that is probably because of. all the armor i remember back all of which heard a very negative or do your thing it's long the problem is solved or there's been biased it's inspired by a sorry. house but girly human. mom which means it's.
who i am and i think ok because of their knowledge do option on all of. our earth or last. line is on the grand isle jazz really and i ask another question just dies i'm going to be 80 yet for our next. job but let me just try another question we'll just listen to what you say and continue with your if we can hear you run is reportedly ready to agree on all the movements the accept his resignation do you think the protestors are willing to negotiate. i think that he cleared about the question with those look a modest but but what i can tell you that the oppositions dubon a lot of broken into but it just that is likely to happen that is going to be
a starting point between 2 parties but when it comes to the do you want to be all opposition party forcing firms to resign that is unlikely it is because of the fact that the army is a sporting private about and also because of the 5 of the opposition parties did go to enjoy that kind of public support whereby they can force by mr resign there is a possibility that the opposition it will flush some sort of strike all over pockets on incoming business but that is unlikely to attract any public sympathies given got 5 people are more concerned about good did affairs and this particular board just has not evolved last year of public reaction did odd what did 100000 people. which represented one particular religious party. i did only really got to grow up so liberal as an a from different backgrounds did not enjoy that going to war where they can load people of what actually is did one lone fool applause any. of the audibly which is
backing the military and the military is back in government and. if you try one of these come. and that is that reason they have come and go towards the resignation of the prime minister opposition leader's job and we just a little bit of time they say that they want to move pakistan of isolation how isolated is pakistan and from the pictures we're seeing of the people protesting what moves could they make to change things already i have not been. ok let's just leave there because there is a connection issue with the. un force no we just get a clear connection we've been speaking to geo political expert. in.
ok moving on better social services on an end to economic inequality those are the months which brought fresh clashes with police in the chilean capital where thousands rallied once more. i. the latest demonstrations come after a short pause in weeks of demonstrations at least 20 people have been killed during the. arson of also lead to major international gatherings being intuiting the u.n. climate summit government claims that 6 police officers have been injured including . far by molotov cocktails thrown by protesters. all right going way beyond the financial headlines next we're crossing to the ports . in moments that make sense of all things business and markets as they looks.
join me every thursday on the excitement and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics. i'm sure i'll see of that. dimension again 635 did you ever what a career and a career involves using your i saw in your computer things like that in an office and perhaps you sort of killings and it says are kids. going to have to stop doing all this in this kind of you lou they're here to be free my world became smaller and smaller and smaller until i ended up living it in a box. or out of
a very strong magnetic field on a card in my head. think of it like a real hard pressure my skin burns and that wireless access point out there just continues all day with our students in the schools. we are just continually bathing our citizens in this microwave radiation it is certainly electro small and it's getting worse. thousands of american men and women choose to serve in their country's military and their decision little shattered lives every thing came to a complete. the day that i was raped to be instructed you know told to shut up what they kill me and i see how it destroyed my life any screamed at me and he made me come in and he grabbed my arm and he write me with his birth thinking if you take
into account that women don't report because of the extreme retaliation it's probably somewhere near about half a 1000000 women have now been sexually assaulted in the us military rape is a very very traumatizing tat happen but i've never seen trauma like i've seen. from women who are veterans who have suffered military sexual trauma reporting rape is more likely to get the victim punished don't be offended and almost 10 year career which shows very invested in and i gave a sex offender who was not even put to justice or put on the registry this is simply an issue of our in violent male sexual predators for the large part of target whoever is there to prey upon whether that's men or women. seem wrong. just don't hold. any. yet to shape out these days become educated and in gains from it equals betrayal.
when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. there max kaiser this is the kaiser a party of all or that expression of you find yourself in a hole stop digging sounds logical right not for who particular industry. basic. thing indeed in fact there are 2 industries and we've talked about them often that's the tech industry we have the tech bubble $2.00 with we were left peloton all of those sort of companies and we have the fracking one and that's important for this 1st headline for wall street dot com because he looks at all
these bubbles going on what he says is here's what i'm worried about with the everything bubble how cash burn machines power the real economy and what happens to the economy when investors refuse to have more of their cash burned so he calls it the cash burn machines these are investors willing to just keep throwing money into ever losing operations we work. of course they were losing money for 10 years or less in the case of we work but they keep on throwing money and they're willing because there's always somebody to flip to they all share $2.00 things in common one they're fabulous lee efficient finely tuned and endlessly perfected cash burn machines and to investors in these companies count a new cash from new investors to bail out and removing the rate the existing investors otherwise known as a ponzi scheme or a pyramid scheme this is a socially was driving the economy is.
