11:34 pm
and they're not going to take over. it might just shift the fighting a little bit, but there will not be an islamic state declared in damascus. this lack of a western response seemed to embolden assad. he realised that some western leaders, we're more concerned about the potential chaos that might result from opposition groups taking over than the were about his staying and power. i saw was quite to exploit this. michelle a said that if not, and as a pot hustled lately, poet kill whole school me law, she had the unit stem yeap bill. i showed little how to persuade the challenge, let wouldn't know xerox below for korea. and she had yellow mosher dishes, ian. and she's at mann in mann in us. oh really my food ought to be young to mammon . habit daily, shout, hell healthy. ah. 2 said release,

11:36 pm
a free, searing army unit, and the syrian government would come in and bomb them by air or maybe an hour later, 2 hours later. and i, it looked like tactical co operation almost. we saw many instances of that, especially in the area around a laptop. for example, a dash food. got me social sincerely, you don't, don't get horrible. well, oh, before we keep all blue she be on new york, we'll soon akita vaughan due to the daughter. oh, boy bell. oh, was a toy to so in so so obvious. you aiden, ye bellow, jim, i don't mean that they don't ever fight this long stick. sometimes they fight this lamb at state. sometimes they cooperate with islamic state. one of the things that tom, as a professional, i can say, i admire about this here in government, is that it is able to do several different contradictory things all at once. and it,
11:37 pm
it's harder to understand them. they can confuse you very well that way. the spread of i sal, and it's increasing violence, preoccupied and shocked. much of the world asada used this opportunity to launch a different kind of campaign aimed at the west, a charm offensive got war anthea is about winning the heart of the people. but i says media was part of the war on syria. when we saw a did is an opening, you know, and that was some country. it started to die to listen. we started to intensify our communication with the left until in by jen managed and to
11:38 pm
talk to jen manners. the syrian president gave interviews to several major media outlets around the world and nobody showed he got a lot. i me that if the moment give to tom and my little media, let it be it give to time on my letter it army letter b or door i turn on a saw on you little had a bit that but any to float more, carney and deliver it to la michelle, i said send anybody in all his interviews, he insisted eats me on chaos. f invasion of terrorist coming from abroad and the government is doing. it's a job in fighting and defending it. it's county has had authority it out of the monica yanine foldable equipment booklet, a shuttle and also he alyssa dominy. i'm a thought alderman 30 over here. let's come. i kind of thought for that and phil

11:40 pm
in the evening, they took me to the full and yeah, mr. to mom. the 1st question, why you'd want like a shuttle exit or just shut it slipped a new and cd. and this is usually a tools to collect on formation. after the 5th, i'm in 2012 at become the thought. sure. not a tools for collecting information. it's a goals, tortured 4th torture, torture for destroyed barbara the prisoner. meanwhile, our side presented himself as a protector of minorities, including christians, and as a buffer against violent on groups. some
11:41 pm
political leaders visited damascus and were warmly received with the west prioritize to it's fight against iso. in the autumn of 2015, they decided to launch their 1st air strikes in syria against iso rather than government forces. they also cut back on their support of opposition groups. this took the military pressure off the syrian army and gave acid precious breathing space. ah, oh, that's good enough. what law will do, but i know your deductible on the thought it was euro god was euro,
11:42 pm
of your idea. oh god, i don't know what the other asset situation remained quite precarious. after 4 years of war, he left the country for the 1st time to visit vladimir putin. he calculated that russian military support would shift the balance of power and the war in his favor. today than owed to an approval or what could have known in what can be in june, olivia come to be her a while and see us in the day of the month, we asked that oceans to come and help us with a air force and that ocean did not ask for anything at from us by the way, our relation with that ocean, as you know, is very historically who's in,
11:43 pm
wanted to stay a step ahead of the west and to revive russian influence in the middle east and your delivery on to be a while and he thought that having survived so far suggested that aside could be relied upon the child that had been now called for a new model of the scholarship on her with her nation is no more get on the withers, loosen or spoke national through social but for most of them. okay. now recorded to still annoy the army on we'll of earth would steven our food chicken though in la city has not begun here yet. no more stir at. yes sir, when you were legal bullshit. my dears. b, or personally, but on was good in there were young up of that. though one come on the ocean in a move, the took the west by surprise. russia now intervened in sylvia in
11:44 pm
a big way. officially they were fighting ice all, but the fights suggested otherwise. ah, it's lost as if love wish city does that up woke up plenty these gold road is she v? nope, we should delay apd surmountable bash. it did loom just have to like a through age 2016, russian military support enabled the serial army to regain large parts of the territory. it had previously lost the u. s. and europe did little to counteract this relentless offensive other than make token the protests they failed to react when government forces used chemical weapons again.
11:45 pm
ah. in september 2016 u. s. president obama reached an agreement with putin to divide syria into 2 operational zones. he no longer demanded assets to parcher. the u. s. was much more concerned with defeating iso ah. at the end of 2016 after weeks of bombing, syrian government forces retook a laptop. the country 2nd largest city, had been an opposition stronghold and
11:46 pm
a symbol of hole. didn't like it other than a food. and although less of the food, what is the theme of believe that is on the dodie of little fellow? about the 5th of one of the whole of the money that while us had remained and power, obama's turn ended in 2017. and donald trump became us president from relative inexperience and his perceived closeness to vladimir putin. may have encouraged, hastened to authorize further chemical attacks in april 2018. and we begin tonight with a horrific attack overseas and a forceful threat here at home. the pictures coming in a warning, they are difficult to look at. children being hosed off, treated after an alleged chemical attack. and duma president trump responding on twitter, vowing a big price will be paid, slamming syrian president bashar al assad, calling him, quote,
11:47 pm
an animal. i believe that the aside regime thought they could get away with it. i think i had seen a year more of donald trump ah, a disorganized erotic inattentive a president the 1st 5 days i was at the white house, at the u. s. had to decide what the response would big. this telling us was home and bombed several military targets. they were backed by france under president emmanuel, michael presidio, the teacher president, mom to the for this for me. me on was of fishy sydney huck. remiss sash. josh or schoo sad c. it's similar, fuss me. uniformly uncle tamara, not the new quite year rossi, damascus,
11:48 pm
or the truss delivered darcy couldn't demos, has shown the fitness. ah, everybody's, you know, that nice political promises. and we're going to end, we're going to get out a war going and these wars, you know, these are no good. it was a huge mistake. you know, if a sod fell, who was going to take over was going to be a very radicalized component. ah, the west did not make any further military interventions, opting instead to impose sanctions on syria. but sanctions had little impact on the government's military capability. as i saw, it gradually took back control of more and more of the country. his critics claimed that he saw himself as his country's muggy or savior. he thinks he's the
11:49 pm
maddie, that's the one of the problems. and sometimes he act like an maddie, when he speaks with his surroundings and friends, this is what we heard from our deaf friends in damascus. the could nathan, about a cliche for were death, a little before the trailer hump well to thought ali aladdin. i what a 3rd of the countries still remained beyond docile control. the kurds, alongside european and american special forces controlled the ne, turkey controlled the north west to contain the carts and back the opposition and it label in the south. a large zone was controlled by u. s. forces and israel carried out regular airstrikes against iranian positions in
11:50 pm
syria. to completely reclaim the rest of his country. aside would ultimately after confront all of these conflicting forces. ah, i got it with the cell all gunther and had within, within a few minutes, vladimir putin came to this is the russian base in syria. but the war was becoming expensive for him on the outcome was still uncertain. starting a war was one thing. ending it was quite another he had a number that of follow up discussions with couldn't i believe that the russians
11:51 pm
were very much interested in reducing the russian true presence in syria. but to do that, to avoid losing their entire investment in the country. they had to have a more stable assad regime. in 5 years, the russians had not only kept the syrian government in power, but it also largely eliminated and marginalized. the moderate opposition articles criticising aside appeared in the russian media suggesting they might have preferred someone with a less checkout history in power. but when i saw it last support from one on i, he always seemed to identify another to turn to for help. michelle said the fellow, what a lucille ely, nathan danielle, hadn't yet either by the light looking to will be only
11:52 pm
a cool. osa for us will be caught the lucky. what to li, putting on sap shakeela. what's what followed m michelle said zed, what did he at any auto let me get on, and norton wish it act out to be a be soria. so be out of your houses. i don't have no doubt the table put out feelers. they already have, we've even had some americans go over our side himself, are very good at understanding how to try to gain leverage against opposition or other countries that are pressing them. and absolutely, i expect him to reach out. in fact, there were a couple of occasions when we tried to reach out to them and ordered a free american prisoners hostages, that the assad or his surrogates still had an in prison and we had no success. with that, we believe that assad at that point was simply carrying out iranian orders, and that there is really no chance we could reach an accommodation with him. i had
11:53 pm
no desire to see a side remain in power, but i didn't see a side as the real cause of the problems in syria. the central thread was iran, and it was the iranian presence in syria that made the u. s. under trump keep large numbers of troops in ne, syria. but aside has been left walking a tightrope. he has had to tread carefully to avoid provoking major powers, like the u. s. are exhausting the patients of his backers, russia and iran. he also faces serious domestic challenges. his country is in ruins. half of the pre long population of syria have been forced from their homes. most of those remaining are destitute with 80 percent of people living on less than 2
11:54 pm
u. s. dollars per day. lou, the cova dynamic has made the situation even worse. even our sides own aloe white community has shown signs of discontent. fresh protests that broken out in some cities reclaimed by the government. there is pressure on the syrian government to make peace with its remaining opponents. and concentrate on reconstruction in the territory under its control. but it lacks the funds to rebuild the country and its backers, russia, and to run a rather unable or unwilling to come to the rescue. assad has also approached the e. u. uncertain gulf states to help fund the reconstruction a will tell the gulf states that give me the money in order to support it myself from iran
11:55 pm
a and you would go to iran. you said that raise your hand. because otherwise, i would be fallen under, under russia. you would go through russia until then if you need to help me more, because i'm falling into under a lawn. and you would go into your old telling them if you need to help me for the deconstruction. i need your money, i will otherwise would. there will be a new wave it for a few days. and you would go to u. s. you need to cooperate with me in the security matters because we have a lot of fights for all the stories. and i says, this is how we play the game from my from a lot. okay. ah
