Barry web it’s news Tuesday for July

0:00:03.629,0:00:10.950
23rd 2019 and there’s one thing that’s

0:00:07.589,0:00:13.440
for sure as an expert in the Middle East

0:00:10.950,0:00:13.950
and Arabist and NSA translator for 25

0:00:13.440,0:00:16.650
years

0:00:13.950,0:00:18.270
I’m sure that you’re never short of

0:00:16.650,0:00:20.760
things to talk about why don’t you let

0:00:18.270,0:00:24.960
us know what you’ve got I think we’ll

0:00:20.760,0:00:27.630
start today with the issue between Qatar

0:00:24.960,0:00:32.399
and the New York Times The New York

0:00:27.630,0:00:35.180
Times this morning reported that Qatar

0:00:32.399,0:00:38.460
has been supporting terrorism in Somalia

0:00:35.180,0:00:42.680
now the fact that of Qatar supporting

0:00:38.460,0:00:45.840
terrorism in other countries is not news

0:00:42.680,0:00:48.930
but what is news is the fact that the

0:00:45.840,0:00:52.039
New York Times of all people reported it

0:00:48.930,0:00:56.000
because they’re too poor they’ve been

0:00:52.039,0:00:59.250
you know covering up ignoring any

0:00:56.000,0:01:02.879
stories of talk Kotler turkey whatever

0:00:59.250,0:01:08.820
while supporting terrorism so why are

0:01:02.879,0:01:11.430
they doing it now why caught our it just

0:01:08.820,0:01:14.070
so happens that a few days back Trump

0:01:11.430,0:01:16.350
hosted the Emir of Qatar

0:01:14.070,0:01:20.330
they’re very nice you know welcoming

0:01:16.350,0:01:24.450
reception well you know lovey dovey

0:01:20.330,0:01:27.840
romance and Trump then bragged about

0:01:24.450,0:01:31.079
this very nice weapons deal he made of

0:01:27.840,0:01:34.290
cotton so I think what the New York

0:01:31.079,0:01:38.369
Times is up to in terms of Rome and why

0:01:34.290,0:01:41.880
they reported this is – in future

0:01:38.369,0:01:44.579
articles draw a link between Trump’s

0:01:41.880,0:01:49.619
close relationship with Qatar and

0:01:44.579,0:01:50.970
contour support of terrorism which means

0:01:49.619,0:01:53.579
that that makes a great deal of sense

0:01:50.970,0:01:58.250
that’s that seems to me the way these

0:01:53.579,0:02:01.110
these media let’s wrong yeah or just

0:01:58.250,0:02:03.000
most recently yes a year ago they were

0:02:01.110,0:02:05.159
condemning Trump they’re not being close

0:02:03.000,0:02:08.429
enough to cantar and for favoring saudi

0:02:05.159,0:02:09.959
arabia over a rocket are in that little

0:02:08.429,0:02:13.560
dispute so now it looks like they Swiss

0:02:09.959,0:02:16.590
because of the collapse of

0:02:13.560,0:02:18.540
the Russia hoax and with this epstein

0:02:16.590,0:02:21.060
thing coming on I think the only thing

0:02:18.540,0:02:24.900
that that the left can hang his hat on

0:02:21.060,0:02:27.090
now is to try to is Trump’s arm sales

0:02:24.900,0:02:30.000
and military relationships with

0:02:27.090,0:02:32.580
countries like turkey Qatar and Nigeria

0:02:30.000,0:02:35.630
and then link that to terrorism to make

0:02:32.580,0:02:38.670
a connection between Trump and terrorism

0:02:35.630,0:02:43.500
well speaking in Turkey is now official

0:02:38.670,0:02:45.269
that the f-35s are off the table because

0:02:43.500,0:02:49.260
of Turkey’s insistence on the s400

0:02:45.269,0:02:51.690
system from Russia now that looks like

0:02:49.260,0:02:53.910
they may be at least getting on the path

0:02:51.690,0:02:54.510
to being kicked out of NATO what do we

0:02:53.910,0:02:57.630
know about that

0:02:54.510,0:03:01.620
well we hope so but my feeling knows

0:02:57.630,0:03:06.930
what you know like Trump means well in

0:03:01.620,0:03:08.459
contrast to his predecessor but just at

0:03:06.930,0:03:09.870
least in the Middle East in terms of

0:03:08.459,0:03:12.299
understanding history and stuff like

0:03:09.870,0:03:16.099
that he’s bumbling and fumbling his way

0:03:12.299,0:03:20.430
through he’s been trying to set to

0:03:16.099,0:03:23.130
correct that s400 deal so he can sell

0:03:20.430,0:03:26.070
get that 35 to Turkey for you know since

0:03:23.130,0:03:29.040
day one which bothers me right off the

0:03:26.070,0:03:33.180
pad because the Turkey’s record you know

0:03:29.040,0:03:35.310
record for of supporting terrorism okay

0:03:33.180,0:03:38.010
that 35 is now off the table what about

0:03:35.310,0:03:40.590
other armaments you know they because

0:03:38.010,0:03:42.810
we’ve always had been selling arms to

0:03:40.590,0:03:45.389
Turkey we have a huge military base in

0:03:42.810,0:03:49.130
Turkey and the Trump administration

0:03:45.389,0:03:51.900
itself cooperates with Turkey in Syria

0:03:49.130,0:03:56.370
and looks the other way as they beat up

0:03:51.900,0:03:58.650
Kurds in Iraq as well as in Syria so you

0:03:56.370,0:04:00.959
know I’m still bothered by that and as

0:03:58.650,0:04:04.350
to whether that will lead to getting

0:04:00.959,0:04:06.750
them out of NATO you know I I kind of

0:04:04.350,0:04:10.470
think that the reason that from nixed

0:04:06.750,0:04:14.519
the f-35 deal is not because of turkeys

0:04:10.470,0:04:16.500
support of terrorism as much as it is

0:04:14.519,0:04:21.599
the fact that Trump was personally

0:04:16.500,0:04:24.300
peeved at the Turks for not listening to

0:04:21.599,0:04:26.220
his vice and canceling this 400 deal and

0:04:24.300,0:04:27.450
buying American I think that’s what

0:04:26.220,0:04:29.430
that’s all about that’s definite

0:04:27.450,0:04:31.980
at the center I mean every article I’ve

0:04:29.430,0:04:34.320
looked at says that as soon as as soon

0:04:31.980,0:04:37.050
as turkey started taking delivery of the

0:04:34.320,0:04:40.380
Russian system that the Americans

0:04:37.050,0:04:43.200
canceled the and the other thing too is

0:04:40.380,0:04:44.580
you got it you got it I mean I can’t I

0:04:43.200,0:04:46.800
can’t believe the turkey wouldn’t

0:04:44.580,0:04:49.110
immediately take the first to a Joint

0:04:46.800,0:04:51.960
Strike Fighters and send them to Russia

0:04:49.110,0:04:55.170
and China for reverse engineering yes so

0:04:51.960,0:04:58.170
yes it’s just it’s a really good idea

0:04:55.170,0:05:00.380
that they yes sales stopped and Turkey

0:04:58.170,0:05:03.360
turkey as you pointed out in a previous

0:05:00.380,0:05:05.730
video we did has been officially

0:05:03.360,0:05:07.700
designated as the new Caliphate by al

0:05:05.730,0:05:10.080
kharid Ali if I got that about right

0:05:07.700,0:05:12.210
yeah yeah occurred that way yeah they

0:05:10.080,0:05:13.500
yeah the ideological leader the Muslim

0:05:12.210,0:05:16.560
Brotherhood and of course order wine

0:05:13.500,0:05:17.820
himself declared that and it’s been

0:05:16.560,0:05:21.180
trying to act upon it

0:05:17.820,0:05:23.610
oh well there you go so um so what else

0:05:21.180,0:05:27.170
well I’ve got one more interesting

0:05:23.610,0:05:31.550
tidbit on the New York Times Kotter

0:05:27.170,0:05:34.590
story that the New York Times apparently

0:05:31.550,0:05:36.710
they got this story quote-unquote from

0:05:34.590,0:05:41.070
intercept an intercepted phone call

0:05:36.710,0:05:45.840
between the Qatari ambassador in Somalia

0:05:41.070,0:05:50.400
and a well-connected Qatari business man

0:05:45.840,0:05:53.100
who is close to the mirror now the New

0:05:50.400,0:05:58.440
York Times does not have the expertise

0:05:53.100,0:06:02.070
and the physical material to intercept

0:05:58.440,0:06:06.660
phone calls like that so this had to

0:06:02.070,0:06:09.120
have been a leak coming from someone

0:06:06.660,0:06:11.580
within the intelligence community one of

0:06:09.120,0:06:16.110
these deep state operators trying to

0:06:11.580,0:06:17.850
undermine Trump well you know what they

0:06:16.110,0:06:22.440
say Washington’s a pot that leaks from

0:06:17.850,0:06:24.300
the top yeah I think everybody kind of

0:06:22.440,0:06:26.490
wants to know a little bit about Iran

0:06:24.300,0:06:29.360
since that I mean there’s this constant

0:06:26.490,0:06:33.380
escalation de-escalation with Iran and

0:06:29.360,0:06:35.820
of course there’s the highly amusing

0:06:33.380,0:06:38.520
rejection of the United States’s offer

0:06:35.820,0:06:40.970
to protect UK ships and then immediately

0:06:38.520,0:06:43.070
a UK ship was

0:06:40.970,0:06:46.460
I heard a trade from the Gulf and now

0:06:43.070,0:06:48.170
the UK has a new prime minister that the

0:06:46.460,0:06:51.350
expectation is is going to be a bit more

0:06:48.170,0:06:53.810
rational in defending British interests

0:06:51.350,0:06:59.540
do we know anything about either this

0:06:53.810,0:07:01.970
ship or any of these escalations yeah

0:06:59.540,0:07:05.450
when we start with the new British Prime

0:07:01.970,0:07:09.230
Minister Boris Johnson who many pundits

0:07:05.450,0:07:11.480
have called the British Trump I mean

0:07:09.230,0:07:13.130
he’s got funny hair honey blonde hair

0:07:11.480,0:07:15.890
and he seems to be someone with a

0:07:13.130,0:07:19.160
populist so let’s hope that now that

0:07:15.890,0:07:21.350
actually suggested that the UK now takes

0:07:19.160,0:07:26.660
a more sensible approach to foreign

0:07:21.350,0:07:28.880
policy now as for the British ship from

0:07:26.660,0:07:30.920
what I understand it is still compounded

0:07:28.880,0:07:31.900
and the crew is still being held by the

0:07:30.920,0:07:35.570
Iranians

0:07:31.900,0:07:37.880
now why is Rainey ndu around doing this

0:07:35.570,0:07:41.060
why are they escalating I think in a

0:07:37.880,0:07:42.950
previous video we discussed that you

0:07:41.060,0:07:45.800
know mosque attendance at least in the

0:07:42.950,0:07:49.100
cities has dropped to something flee

0:07:45.800,0:07:52.910
yeah my my screen has dropped like three

0:07:49.100,0:07:55.669
percent and our ratings are naming their

0:07:52.910,0:07:58.960
newborn children after ancient pagan

0:07:55.669,0:08:03.860
Persian heroes rather than Islamic names

0:07:58.960,0:08:05.840
so the you know the mullahs the ruling

0:08:03.860,0:08:07.640
mullahs are worried about their popular

0:08:05.840,0:08:09.680
support so I think the escalation there

0:08:07.640,0:08:13.250
is because they feel desperate and

0:08:09.680,0:08:17.630
they’re trying to use that to drum up

0:08:13.250,0:08:19.660
popular sport support rather and another

0:08:17.630,0:08:24.530
factor I think this playing in this is

0:08:19.660,0:08:27.890
everybody in the planet knows that Trump

0:08:24.530,0:08:28.669
doesn’t want a war prior to the 2020

0:08:27.890,0:08:32.349
elections

0:08:28.669,0:08:35.839
so you see Iran and you see Venezuela

0:08:32.349,0:08:38.690
Russia and China everyone acting much

0:08:35.839,0:08:41.930
more aggressive now knowing this that

0:08:38.690,0:08:44.420
they can push as far you know much

0:08:41.930,0:08:46.580
further than usual because of the

0:08:44.420,0:08:49.660
political situation in the US and

0:08:46.580,0:08:54.170
they’re going to do everything short of

0:08:49.660,0:08:56.360
kill actually killing American troops

0:08:54.170,0:08:59.300
okay so if I could just venture a guess

0:08:56.360,0:09:02.570
here it looks to me like Iran has been

0:08:59.300,0:09:06.110
trying to create a casus belli for other

0:09:02.570,0:09:07.670
agencies in order that they can unify

0:09:06.110,0:09:11.690
their own people behind the government

0:09:07.670,0:09:13.250
by claiming that they have a just war

0:09:11.690,0:09:16.310
you know what I mean

0:09:13.250,0:09:19.100
or at the very least yeah they can claim

0:09:16.310,0:09:21.079
that they have you know given the big

0:09:19.100,0:09:24.199
superpower a black eye and gotten away

0:09:21.079,0:09:26.660
with it well that that’s that’s one

0:09:24.199,0:09:28.430
option the other option is that they

0:09:26.660,0:09:30.769
give a superpower a black eye the

0:09:28.430,0:09:33.170
superpower attacks them and then they

0:09:30.769,0:09:35.930
rally all their people behind them in

0:09:33.170,0:09:38.329
some major and they’re just because Eric

0:09:35.930,0:09:41.000
as they said they said the drone that

0:09:38.329,0:09:43.010
was shot down was over Iranian space

0:09:41.000,0:09:45.050
when it really was international they’re

0:09:43.010,0:09:47.029
saying that the UK boat was in Iranian

0:09:45.050,0:09:48.920
waters when it was an international so

0:09:47.029,0:09:51.920
it appears that they’re creating the

0:09:48.920,0:09:58.310
local media hype to try to justify these

0:09:51.920,0:10:02.269
actions yeah so they are the wrong per

0:09:58.310,0:10:04.850
innocent victims no yeah I remember the

0:10:02.269,0:10:07.579
takeover of the US Embassy I’m pretty

0:10:04.850,0:10:09.769
good there thank you very much for this
