0:00:00.060,0:00:05.370
Barry Webb here it is news Tuesday again

0:00:02.730,0:00:07.410
yes it is Thursday technically but it’s

0:00:05.370,0:00:10.800
supposed to be Tuesday so we’ll call it

0:00:07.410,0:00:13.679
news Tuesday today what have you got for

0:00:10.800,0:00:16.859
us I wanted to start with the Soudan

0:00:13.679,0:00:19.740
thing because I wanted to clarify

0:00:16.859,0:00:24.619
something about the what’s going on with

0:00:19.740,0:00:28.349
the hooter and the gem show weed militia

0:00:24.619,0:00:31.759
the Janjaweed militias started actually

0:00:28.349,0:00:35.790
in West the west part of Sudan and the

0:00:31.759,0:00:39.120
situation there was you had these this

0:00:35.790,0:00:43.110
black African tribe in Darfur that was

0:00:39.120,0:00:46.260
after culturalist and the JED the there

0:00:43.110,0:00:50.600
were several other tribes that Arabic

0:00:46.260,0:00:55.140
speaking tribes that were semi-nomadic

0:00:50.600,0:00:57.750
herders and they formed together into

0:00:55.140,0:01:01.170
one militia called the gentle weed and

0:00:57.750,0:01:06.030
they begin to pick fights with the black

0:01:01.170,0:01:08.880
African agriculture list and the car to

0:01:06.030,0:01:11.310
new government headed by al Bashir at

0:01:08.880,0:01:14.509
the time gave them weapons and

0:01:11.310,0:01:17.640
encouraged them to commit genocide

0:01:14.509,0:01:20.640
against the black Africans interval even

0:01:17.640,0:01:22.680
though the Africans were Muslims but the

0:01:20.640,0:01:24.810
janji weed were Muslim right yeah

0:01:22.680,0:01:28.140
they’re both Muslims and their Arab

0:01:24.810,0:01:30.000
leader Arab Muslim right yes against the

0:01:28.140,0:01:33.240
black apperance it was like a racial

0:01:30.000,0:01:36.240
genocide thing and that’s why he was

0:01:33.240,0:01:39.390
condemned al Bashir was condemned by the

0:01:36.240,0:01:47.310
UN and you know the Western powers what

0:01:39.390,0:01:50.970
not now then after all of us after he

0:01:47.310,0:01:54.360
was you know put under pressure by the

0:01:50.970,0:01:58.350
yenta-mouth forces he embraced the

0:01:54.360,0:02:03.450
ginger we brought them into you know

0:01:58.350,0:02:07.039
into his system as a why call him the

0:02:03.450,0:02:10.709
rapid support forces so it was like a

0:02:07.039,0:02:12.870
separate army kind of like the IRGC or

0:02:10.709,0:02:17.190
the Hitler’s SS

0:02:12.870,0:02:19.080
or the citizen army that Obama wanted to

0:02:17.190,0:02:21.030
make which would be just as big and

0:02:19.080,0:02:25.950
powerful as a regular army remember that

0:02:21.030,0:02:29.549
one so the Danny Way dictatorial regimes

0:02:25.950,0:02:31.590
tend to do that to have a counter to the

0:02:29.549,0:02:37.170
Regular Army to you know prevent a coup

0:02:31.590,0:02:41.819
now fast forward to the current ongoing

0:02:37.170,0:02:46.890
situation in Sudan the protesters are

0:02:41.819,0:02:48.840
saying that the in yet the the parties

0:02:46.890,0:02:51.049
that are that have been you know for

0:02:48.840,0:02:54.569
losing using live fire on the protesters

0:02:51.049,0:02:57.840
were the ginger wheat and not the

0:02:54.569,0:02:59.159
Regular Army and I’ve recently read some

0:02:57.840,0:03:02.280
articles that there appears to be

0:02:59.159,0:03:04.230
divisions now within the military who –

0:03:02.280,0:03:06.870
between the Regular Army and the general

0:03:04.230,0:03:09.659
wheat and some commentators are

0:03:06.870,0:03:12.599
beginning to predict possible civil war

0:03:09.659,0:03:14.099
there so that’s okay so that’s

0:03:12.599,0:03:16.319
interesting so you’re saying the Jan J

0:03:14.099,0:03:18.569
weed which are now because I remember

0:03:16.319,0:03:21.510
seeing even reports on TV and this is

0:03:18.569,0:03:23.370
before it was it became you know

0:03:21.510,0:03:26.130
impossible to say anything bad about a

0:03:23.370,0:03:28.590
Muslim in the media that the Janjaweed

0:03:26.130,0:03:31.109
were rounding up black Africans as

0:03:28.590,0:03:32.489
slaves and what could be Christian

0:03:31.109,0:03:34.319
animist or whatever have you but the

0:03:32.489,0:03:36.599
Chandra we’d were distinctly an islamic

0:03:34.319,0:03:38.220
force that were rounding up black

0:03:36.599,0:03:40.319
africans for slaves and actually

0:03:38.220,0:03:41.849
christians had been going over to africa

0:03:40.319,0:03:43.889
to buy them back and return them to

0:03:41.849,0:03:46.199
their villages so i guess it’s the gift

0:03:43.889,0:03:48.660
that keeps on giving for the slavers but

0:03:46.199,0:03:49.980
the the so now you’re saying that

0:03:48.660,0:03:52.709
essentially these guys are also

0:03:49.980,0:03:56.419
basically kind of like chevy stes and

0:03:52.709,0:04:00.000
they’re like the they’re like a

0:03:56.419,0:04:02.370
politicized army for the dictator yes

0:04:00.000,0:04:04.079
okay that’s interesting and now when

0:04:02.370,0:04:05.790
your course when you mention i remember

0:04:04.079,0:04:08.459
distinctly obama talking about his

0:04:05.790,0:04:10.560
little civilian army that was gonna just

0:04:08.459,0:04:13.980
yeah now I get why I did that anyway

0:04:10.560,0:04:16.199
that’s that’s wild yeah and everything

0:04:13.980,0:04:20.130
else in the Arabic news judges one more

0:04:16.199,0:04:23.849
thing on the and the kunta the top guy

0:04:20.130,0:04:26.530
in the juntao a general Braun is of the

0:04:23.849,0:04:30.100
Regular Army but

0:04:26.530,0:04:33.750
everybody thinks our corner court knows

0:04:30.100,0:04:37.780
that the real power behind the hooter is

0:04:33.750,0:04:40.150
the number-two guy which is a general

0:04:37.780,0:04:42.970
hump down Rollo or something like that

0:04:40.150,0:04:47.080
and he’s the head of the ginger weed the

0:04:42.970,0:04:49.889
rep so called rapid support forces on

0:04:47.080,0:04:53.800
horseback if I remember right but yeah

0:04:49.889,0:04:55.930
so so what else have we got in Arabic

0:04:53.800,0:04:59.080
news what’s the big thing today you know

0:04:55.930,0:05:02.470
is the attacked on the oil tankers you

0:04:59.080,0:05:05.140
hear about that well yes it’s it’s huge

0:05:02.470,0:05:07.500
news in its you know I tend to not say

0:05:05.140,0:05:10.450
much when a thing happens fog of war

0:05:07.500,0:05:12.550
information and all that very difficult

0:05:10.450,0:05:15.780
to tell what’s really going on all these

0:05:12.550,0:05:18.520
holes appear to be above the waterline

0:05:15.780,0:05:23.080
do you know what does Arabic news saying

0:05:18.520,0:05:25.570
about this or Persian is first there

0:05:23.080,0:05:27.820
were ok there were two vessels one was

0:05:25.570,0:05:29.530
Norwegian and yeah and those are no

0:05:27.820,0:05:31.570
recent hit vessel those hit a month ago

0:05:29.530,0:05:34.060
you know and a Fujairah

0:05:31.570,0:05:36.220
it’s one of the four vessels hit so we

0:05:34.060,0:05:38.410
had a Norwegian vessel today and a

0:05:36.220,0:05:42.180
Japanese vessel and that’s extremely

0:05:38.410,0:05:44.590
interesting because the premier of Japan

0:05:42.180,0:05:47.979
whatever I’ve got is a baby what ever

0:05:44.590,0:05:50.320
since always Oh whatever yes it was in

0:05:47.979,0:05:52.120
Tara ran trying to talk peace with the

0:05:50.320,0:05:54.039
Iranians to get them to come to the

0:05:52.120,0:05:56.710
table you know really nice hunky-dory

0:05:54.039,0:05:58.630
you’re to the Japanese you know face

0:05:56.710,0:06:01.900
when they were face to face in the

0:05:58.630,0:06:04.060
meantime the IRGC was trying to destroy

0:06:01.900,0:06:06.220
one of the Japanese ships but anyway

0:06:04.060,0:06:10.500
they were wrong okay there were three

0:06:06.220,0:06:12.250
explosions in the Norwegian ship and

0:06:10.500,0:06:14.890
there were supposed to be three

0:06:12.250,0:06:16.570
explosions in the Japanese yet but only

0:06:14.890,0:06:18.640
two of them actually exploded

0:06:16.570,0:06:20.289
now the Arabic news is saying that

0:06:18.640,0:06:24.070
there’s calling them locum which is

0:06:20.289,0:06:26.169
there before a mine which sounds like

0:06:24.070,0:06:28.600
the client that the Raney’s had planted

0:06:26.169,0:06:31.870
mines you know there were ships pass

0:06:28.600,0:06:33.940
through but if you’re saying that the

0:06:31.870,0:06:36.520
looks like the holes are above water

0:06:33.940,0:06:39.790
seems to me that I don’t maybe a torpedo

0:06:36.520,0:06:43.420
or something but anyway there

0:06:39.790,0:06:44.740
just the US army our US military maybe

0:06:43.420,0:06:48.190
never big news calls

0:06:44.740,0:06:50.230
milah any military army sometimes anyway

0:06:48.190,0:06:52.060
they they just released a picture and

0:06:50.230,0:06:59.760
this is showing other Arabic TV channels

0:06:52.060,0:07:03.000
of a small boat of the Iranian re rgc

0:06:59.760,0:07:06.100
loaded with a ballast like 1012 guys

0:07:03.000,0:07:11.790
that approached one of the Japanese

0:07:06.100,0:07:15.100
vessel to get this to extract the

0:07:11.790,0:07:18.120
explosive was the torpedo mine wetters

0:07:15.100,0:07:23.440
to extract it from the Japanese ship

0:07:18.120,0:07:25.630
take it away because the unexploded

0:07:23.440,0:07:29.070
device would had markings on it that

0:07:25.630,0:07:31.030
would identify it as being Iranian and

0:07:29.070,0:07:33.070
they knew we know that for both

0:07:31.030,0:07:35.410
investigations coming down they didn’t

0:07:33.070,0:07:36.970
want to leave any evidence behind so

0:07:35.410,0:07:42.310
they went and stole the evidence when in

0:07:36.970,0:07:46.720
full uniform but apparently some u.s.

0:07:42.310,0:07:49.480
serviceman who got a video of it from a

0:07:46.720,0:07:52.240
long ways ways those very worries not

0:07:49.480,0:07:54.490
very clear but you know with

0:07:52.240,0:07:57.580
enhancements they’ve identified it as a

0:07:54.490,0:07:58.240
sniper GCE on a boat now that’s

0:07:57.580,0:08:00.130
interesting

0:07:58.240,0:08:02.740
wow thank you that’s really interesting

0:08:00.130,0:08:05.350
so Iranians got busted trying to

0:08:02.740,0:08:07.900
retrieve evidence of their own sabotage

0:08:05.350,0:08:09.430
well I mean unless it a I just thinking

0:08:07.900,0:08:11.260
if it’s a double hull boat and the

0:08:09.430,0:08:12.640
inside there’s there’s no reports of any

0:08:11.260,0:08:15.790
oil leaking that I’m aware of

0:08:12.640,0:08:18.160
well listen yeah I’ve heard that but boy

0:08:15.790,0:08:22.360
the smoke coming at it I think so oil is

0:08:18.160,0:08:25.050
burning right fair enough but it kind of

0:08:22.360,0:08:28.240
you’re looking at it kinda reminds me of

0:08:25.050,0:08:30.250
remember when we took down Saddam

0:08:28.240,0:08:32.380
Hussein aren’t great but way back in the

0:08:30.250,0:08:35.820
first war in the quake war actually in

0:08:32.380,0:08:39.640
91 does a swarm when Saddam Hussein

0:08:35.820,0:08:42.250
withdrew from Kuwait he said all the oil

0:08:39.640,0:08:44.290
fields on fire remember all that was and

0:08:42.250,0:08:46.360
I used to own an audio I know what

0:08:44.290,0:08:52.690
burning oil looks like yeah that’s what

0:08:46.360,0:08:53.440
it looked like well well yeah another

0:08:52.690,0:08:56.949
thing that

0:08:53.440,0:09:03.329
just happened yesterday is that the the

0:08:56.949,0:09:06.310
houthis used a cruise missile to bomb an

0:09:03.329,0:09:09.639
airport observatory tower in Saudi

0:09:06.310,0:09:11.709
Arabia so by crew you mean like an

0:09:09.639,0:09:17.439
actual cruise brand missile American

0:09:11.709,0:09:19.420
style cruise missile and you know these

0:09:17.439,0:09:24.129
are they gonna get a cruise missile from

0:09:19.420,0:09:25.750
well they didn’t make it I don’t think

0:09:24.129,0:09:27.579
the Lucy didn’t make it I’m pretty

0:09:25.750,0:09:34.420
confident of that they can barely make a

0:09:27.579,0:09:42.160
sign yeah so I don’t think I got it from

0:09:34.420,0:09:44.769
Ray Athan right I’m gonna guess Iran but

0:09:42.160,0:09:47.350
can Iran make a cruise missile I didn’t

0:09:44.769,0:09:50.129
know that either and this news on me but

0:09:47.350,0:09:52.029
apparently that’s where it came from

0:09:50.129,0:09:56.199
and I don’t know where they got the

0:09:52.029,0:10:00.220
technology I actually I think cruise

0:09:56.199,0:10:01.029
missile is ready just a glorified Nazi

0:10:00.220,0:10:02.829
v1

0:10:01.029,0:10:06.009
remember that the bus bomb all right

0:10:02.829,0:10:08.130
okay well basically a cruise missile but

0:10:06.009,0:10:10.990
they didn’t have any any guidance I know

0:10:08.130,0:10:13.930
right but so now you just build a bus

0:10:10.990,0:10:16.870
bomb and used computers and you got

0:10:13.930,0:10:19.329
guidance GPS well I guess in some ways

0:10:16.870,0:10:20.949
it I guess if it isn’t expected to go

0:10:19.329,0:10:23.470
super fast and you don’t have to worry

0:10:20.949,0:10:26.079
too much about control surfaces I don’t

0:10:23.470,0:10:27.730
know I mean I part of me whenever I fly

0:10:26.079,0:10:30.189
a little drone I think to myself how

0:10:27.730,0:10:32.230
hard would it be to make a scale thing

0:10:30.189,0:10:35.050
of this with automatic automatic GPS

0:10:32.230,0:10:38.110
guidance not very hard I guess but yeah

0:10:35.050,0:10:39.519
still yeah you know I guess the the

0:10:38.110,0:10:42.850
Saudis must be getting increasingly

0:10:39.519,0:10:44.470
ticked off yeah yeah the hope these have

0:10:42.850,0:10:47.769
been using drones for a quarter of a

0:10:44.470,0:10:49.629
year for a couple weeks but now at least

0:10:47.769,0:10:54.069
in Arabic news they’re calling a cruise

0:10:49.629,0:10:57.790
missile so it was like an upgrade anyway

0:10:54.069,0:11:02.319
to put this all together Iran is trying

0:10:57.790,0:11:04.589
to course plus the Saudis in UAE

0:11:02.319,0:11:06.709
the Emiratis now but they’re also put

0:11:04.589,0:11:08.720
poking us in the eye

0:11:06.709,0:11:12.379
trying to get away with as much as they

0:11:08.720,0:11:13.519
can just short of an outright war

0:11:12.379,0:11:18.619
because they don’t really want a war

0:11:13.519,0:11:20.660
with us but it’s just too I guess

0:11:18.619,0:11:23.600
embarrassed it’s and embarrass us and

0:11:20.660,0:11:26.899
see what then get away with uh in hopes

0:11:23.600,0:11:31.040
that being macho unaggressive like this

0:11:26.899,0:11:33.740
is going to unite you know population

0:11:31.040,0:11:36.139
behind them and in fact uh just

0:11:33.740,0:11:37.939
listening to a Kuwaiti professor he was

0:11:36.139,0:11:40.790
saying that that’s what they’re up to

0:11:37.939,0:11:43.339
it’s to try but isn’t the fact that Iran

0:11:40.790,0:11:46.730
is an apocalyptic cult of it so I mean

0:11:43.339,0:11:49.399
it all is but Iran is as apocalyptic as

0:11:46.730,0:11:52.929
the Islamic state was yes wouldn’t you

0:11:49.399,0:11:56.709
say that would impact their strategy

0:11:52.929,0:11:59.779
yeah their whole reason for being is to

0:11:56.709,0:12:03.319
lead the entire Islamic nation in that

0:11:59.779,0:12:05.929
great final war against Western

0:12:03.319,0:12:08.600
Christianity in order to bring up Jesus

0:12:05.929,0:12:09.470
Christ back and you know the Judgment

0:12:08.600,0:12:11.629
Day and all that

0:12:09.470,0:12:14.480
yeah well somehow to look forward to

0:12:11.629,0:12:16.639
