3:01 am
interpreter and others has helped troops and soon as he, as president, needs to take greater control of the security services appointing a new interior minister. aah! with the delta variance of the corona virus spreading through the united states, president joe biden has an unsafe list of incentives and restrictions to try to get more americans vaccinated. it includes restrictions for federal employees as well as funding for small businesses. she have returns the reports now from washington. just a few weeks ago the white house was counting what it said would be a summer of joy and freedom. things have changed. this american tragedy. people are dying and will die. who don't have to die throughout their own vaccinate. you
3:02 am
don't have to die view as president announced a mixture of incentives and requirements. employers will be reimbursed for paid sickly given to employees to get vaccinated and bite and urged local authorities use emergency federal aid to offer the unvaccinated $100.00 to get their shots. in addition, federal government, employees, and contract as will be required to disclose the vaccination status if they refuse or are vaccinated, they will be required to wear a mask no matter the location. physically, distance from others, be tested weekly or twice weekly, and have travel restrictions imposed. but this isn't a federal vaccine mandate. the presidents that he wasn't clear about the legality of one and federal employees have a choice not to get vaccinated, but clearly their working lives will be more difficult as a result. by dint made it clear, this was not a partisan issue that actually was developed and authorized under republican
3:03 am
administration. has been distributed, administered under a democratic administration. the vaccines are safe, highly effective. there's nothing political about. we have a country in crisis that wasn't the message on capitol hill, where mosques and mandatory in the house of representatives, leading to statements of outrage from the republican minority leader. the tweeter, the liberal officials, wanted to live in a perpetual pandemic state. which led to this withering response from the democratic speaker of the house. the science. it's a very unusual rare event you've been instructions leading virus expert has been trying to explain. this is a dynamic situation with change duties. the virus has changed. the delta variance has a very unusual capability of spreading much more easily than the alpha did. the debate about masking in schools is getting heated across the country. these kids
3:04 am
are not affected. please stop the insanity. you have already done damage to his kids by having them where mask is. but other parents argue that it's masking up the route and the confusion about safety. oh, tremendously more so comfortable because strategy worked, they proved it work. they proved at work last year. but perhaps there are some hopeful signs that they have decided not to get vaccination so far. may not be firmly entrenched in that position. was still way down from the peak scene in april . the numbers, if they is getting facts they could have been creeping up week on week. she every time see al jazeera washington staying with that story and also franco is a republican strategist. he says, do biden is failing to convince americans to get the vaccine. i think what's going on, i think this is the continuation of some model messages by this president. i think the focus is of course, trying to get people vaccinated because the problem is the unvaccinated. those are the deaths that are taking place, not the vaccinated, and the mask mandate is going to be now
3:05 am
a disincentive to get facts needed. so if you have to not wear a mask whether you are vaccinated or not, there's not much of an incentive to do so. obviously it's a free country, no matter what the excuses and it's something to do with the health care system. these are free vaccines are widely available at grocery stores and pharmacies throughout the country is a large segment of the population. that is not trump, that is the hard core democrats, supporters and minority groups just don't believe and the efficacy. they believe in side effects. and that's that, that's their prerogative. i think the campaign that we need to have the co pays to convince people to get vaccinated and the reward is you don't have to work for a mask. the idea here is not the perfect. it's a manageable disease. the way we manage of wednesday or any anything else. so it goes back to one simple fact. how do you get unvaccinated people vaccinated?
3:06 am
one message you don't want to send is what the president just today. you're going to wear a mask. what are your vaccinate or not? what is the incentive for that? we've seen the resistance out in france, in europe and other places, and i think you're going to see it in this country as well. i think it's a colossal mistake. i think you will try to walk back syrian government forces or intensifying the bombardment of their off at least 18 people have been killed. thousands have been displaced. rebels of loans, the tax on checkpoints that it is, the worst violence in the government retook the area. 3 years ago, i saw said r has more i children were among those small town, just thank you them, but there's not of cities in south syria. also follow the old valid on thursday, the student government and his allies began a large scale military operation off the afford to reach an agreement with locals, fell through rebel forces rejected the government's proposal to lay down there
3:07 am
were the sons of hold on from the north to the south and east to the west. if the decision is for war than we are ready for its per piece than we support it, our preference is to do what preserves our honor. a sultan district of talent city has been under siege for one month. with the government preventing the delivery of food and madison, quoting all of the rebels to turn down so scant whoever picks up weapons against the army is a traitor and traitors should be killed, whoever they are. send this message to all the people of durham, whether they agreed to a reconciliation deal or not. there had been years of relative court in the district of the russian broker, the conciliation agreements raised with honorable forces and locals in 2018, granting amnesty to those who fought against the government in previous years,
3:08 am
rebels are trying to ease the pressure in that al ballard, by launching attacks against the government forces in other areas across the province of running dozens of government checkpoints in just a few hours of what we've captured 70 of the regime soldiers. now we are headed from the town of sierra to 9 to take control of the silos rights groups are concerned about the escalation of wayland describing it as the worst in the province since the government took back whole troll in 2018 crystal saturday. oh, jazeera is stumbled. ok, let's bring in lauren's corps. he is a senior fellow at the center for american progress. he's also formerly an assistant secretary of defense. he joins us from washington. lawrence called welcome to answer 0. dara has always been different, unique i guess at some level. but why now? well, i think what happened after the election, most of the people in here,
3:09 am
i did not even both. and i think i saw and is trying to get control of the whole country now that he's had this 85 percent support in the election. and when he tried that, the rebels who were allowed to maintain on their arms on the russian broker agreement and 2080, they resist it. and so now you've got a lot of violence there. and the question becomes one of the russians, does this change the status quo for there are forever in as much as you've already touched on it 20183 years ago when this immediate area was, quote, reconciled, the people of dera did not go to italy, but they refused to be bossed away from their homes. they stayed put that's right. i mean, basically you have the best of all possible worlds. because you put down the rebels without having to really get into a very, very drawn out fight. basically,
3:10 am
you control the rest of the country, you didn't have all of the people going up to the province by the turkish border causing problems there. so you had basically a excellent status quo for the last 3 years, which you saw has decided after this election. he no longer wants to tolerate any group within his control. that is not completely on there. his eyes were gene. do you think in your opinion as well, that might mean that he could pivot to what's going after the so called 5th core. they are unique, they're unique to dara to this province as well because they're paid literally paid by the russians, but they were recruited and fed up to fight. i saw i saw has 99.9 percent been eradicated from syria. so as far as the 5th corps is concerned, made up of form the rebels, what's the point of them? well, you're right, that isis has been defeated primarily with the help of the united states.
3:11 am
ironically when we had the courage come into the northern part of syria and, you know, killed our bag. got it. there's really no reason for it except psychological because basically this says, we've maintained our independence from assad. we have not cave. and so it's much more psychological and i think that really the question is all the russia going to intervene like they did in 2018, or are they going to say, well, some places is gone. you guys go ahead and quite it out. but there's a question that this friday could spill over into the surrounding areas and they even involve israel, which nobody wants. i suspect this is something we will return to in the coming weeks and months. lawrence called, always good to get your thoughts on what's going on. inside syria during that conflict, many thanks. thank you for having made the u. s. congress has passed a bill,

3:13 am
. so it's expected that the us will be dealing with somewhere in the region of $2500.00. i do can process them in afghan. it's not quite simply because they don't have the resources, the able to do it here and 20, blinking as well as your bike has acknowledged that the u. s. does or debt to these people and has to treat them properly. the united states as committed to helping those who helped us during our time in ghana step over the last 20 years. and indeed we've had very brave afghans who stood with with us, with our soldiers, with our diplomats, mostly as translators and interpreters. and as a result of that service benefit from the possibility of securing a visa to come live in the united states were actively engaged in that process. and notably in relocation planning for those brave afghans and their families. some of
