it happened very, spontaneously very suddenly, wasn't planned. and it was immediately filmed by syrians with their cellphone. ah, and we sent a message to washington that night and said it's coming in the fire wood is very dry and it's coming. 3 days later on the 18th of march, 2011 young people in the southern city of deborah wrote on their school wall. it's your turn next doctor. their arrest and torture provoked a wave of protests which sweat the country. syrian security forces attacked unarmed protesters who were colon for more freedom ah.

even though still by law savvy on had it. no, i should be in nor artillery because up to laurie sally already said it, the lady was a fee announcement in hell and to lawton law. lunesta. mit will marked it that tammy gillian global could 20 not for shadow. can nice bustle talk sadly. what little men of he can know? yeah, you cut off min no enough, alleviate luck was shot. my thought will be asli. who will be? i'm in a slot. what the lovely cap of you for who about that a good bless. i'd be glad the out of i ludo thought she might be wednesday than i really why bill is jemma i there are not, not, not, none of and hello emily than the head of
the building is just now beside him. madame a policy lot, a lot on way. the hoodie latina monica young alan was al ambia when he since 871. but when in my office it's as they put with it is more of them for to build on. and it's only the silence and eyes that believe that the wasp will conch we are going to the war. wow. for oneself, as i said, man, i thus giddy lad, asia maria with her while law dictates. or how quickly will that den, but that e, deb, hey, i don't understand totally the that to learn azure of how a must villa on the same matter. isla web b? well, let us hate for gonna lab. no oh you said the seller east london must in if you any more nor had for corolla. i mean
massena, la who will it be in all? oh, had the shop. oh my be silly swati oh, assad's 1st move was to crooked on the protesters. ah oh, but this simply spurred on his opponents who themselves began to take up arms. their ranks were bolstered by soldiers deserted the syrian army. soon they received international support. that's easy because they open the war all over the country. i mean, it's much easier to fight the war along your border. but whenever i saw the president, it would say we're going to be here and we're going to fight and we are going to be
victorious. we will prevail, no problem, no matter how painful it is, but at the end we will prevent ah, by the summer of 2011, the syrian government forces had lost control of half the country. media images circulated, showing the widespread killing of any opposition the world watched. in shock on serious acids position weakens and western governments turned against him. mary lou, i have indicated repeatedly that present alice out as lost legitimacy that he needs to step down. rather than drag his country in the civil war, he should move in the direction of the political transition. the view in the white house was as sad, is essentially finished and he is finished near term.
and our concern in the white house is that he may be finished before the president of the united states says he should be finished. therefore, we need to get the president up to make the statement to be on the right side of history before it happens. ah, this was quite a turn around for a president who had previously managed to project a very positive image to western leaders. he speaks english, he's a handsome man, wedding suit than the thigh, and therefore one was an official deals to come to him before the war. they say to him, well, as you are western educated,
he what didn't indicated is that then in the west for 2 years. and then the west thinks that's why he is good. that's why his flexible, that's why he's enlightened because he is westernized. means he has like us, you know, it means it would give him the honor to describe him that he is one like us, but he is still in, ah, the war caused a massive refugee exodus as hundreds of thousands and then millions of syrians flagged the fighting this increasingly drew eastern european and other western countries into the whole crisis. france became one of the louder voices calling on our side to step down. now we shall not foresee, play with plenty, all good supercharged us up. in order from political book, you'd want buffy of couldn't read both of you. in june 2012,
the un organize a conference in june, attended by the u. s. russia, china and britain. it agreed to set up a transitional body, damascus, involving the government and the opposition. but when you are secretary of state, hillary clinton suggested that aside should 1st step down. russian foreign minister loved av showed concern. it was clear to us by 2012, he would only negotiate under pressure. we hoped we hoped that the russians would apply that pressure. what does she want on the loop? and you know, like you don't like leave almost to go what i found traditional put cheeks. it was his show would be, well, that was the soft tea along with did it for him. she magnetic e. her live off. i need to know how to do the
inference was that russian president vladimir putin chose to protect aside as syrian leader. russia had a naval base there and put and did not support the revolutions of the so called arab spring. all the idea that western countries were champions of human rights was there. oh, i see you. well, you know, put on, because of obama slash hostile washer us of need infection was fresh, marked oil work with you, or you can credit directly with you at 31. no, sir, but missouri. we will also go got the miss fortune a john and kind of us address them this she lived with and she thought they actually knew my loss well brecht of what the diplomacy stalled. so western governments led by the us and france increased their support for the syrian opposition in exile. and it's armed when the free syrian army. what can we do to accelerate that process? the united states and other governments decided that they would try to coalesce,
the opposition provide it support so that it was strong enough to at a minimum, negotiate a transition in syria. oh, the west port. hundreds of millions of heroes and dollars into weapons and training programs for the soviet position. with this level of support, the opposition succeeded in gaining ground until government forces shown here in red, controlled only a 3rd of the contract. ah,
my early 2013 asada was becoming increasingly isolated. he rarely left the presidential palace and several former allies defected, only the continued support of russia. iran and the armed lebanese group has bhalla, enabled the government to avoid defeat with what i've been, where time when i felt that things are very, very difficult. and when i felt that it could be the last see it i live. and because we had only let them learn. yup, what, learn what none said. i will learn live and fight and die. and celia newman, ah, with this strategy began to pay
dividends. i saw supporters rallied around him and he built a firm following among the middle class. and the other white and christian minority communities at the same time, the west also began to lose patience with the syrian opposition move if your own and i have an opposition strong enough to take on a standing army. and i regime with security forces that's backed by russia and iran, then you needed to be powerful and united. and i think one of the challenges we faced was it turned out the opposition was neither strong nor united. self does any more deploy should or at your keys at the same proportion. you get down journey, c. c. did, or did. univ uni people. you need people because she was at boni, somewhat m. m. o and sit do an i to publisher.
ah, with the opposition, however, certain armed groups began to gain more info than others getting stronger. they had money, they had ammunition, they had food, they could pay salaries to their fighters. a lot of young syrians are joining them . i recommended and i know colleagues at the cia recommended that we helped those more moderate elements, who were on the one hand, competing with the al qaeda affiliate in syria, called the nurse her front. and on the other hand were fighting opposite the moderate opposition was therefore forced to fight on 2 fronts. and asada was present the west with
a greater challenge and thoughtful thought on the murat, tiffany hutsel. level cousin will not on the 21st of august 2030 syrian government forces used chemical weapons against opposition held areas. hundreds of people were killed, including many children. i saw had visited troops nearby, 20 days before the time. oh, i do show with the, with the u. s. it announced a year before the chemical weapons were a red line not to be crossed any use they said will be met with an american
response. france also said it will be prepared to support the us with a or power. ah, president obama has the military to prepare for quite a significant response. some of the senior syrian officials sent their families out of damascus because they were worried. ah, then you might get more fighting in damascus itself. it would have been physically devastating for ah, for physical assets of the syrian regime. the precision that i know it would have reduced to, to almost 0. the potential for non combat to be killed. a few hours before the plant strikes, obama called
a white house crisis meeting. there was a long national security council meeting that was focused. it's fair to say more on how to go about military response than whether the turning point moment was when the president came to the conclusion that he changed his mind. oh, st. lou pushed on me. i can't pin the jose locker cookers or barbara. yes. surely. good, say to play or is almost no. so if you see lou lou cuz you're confused and to top wife than you know, we're gonna be pure. we don't want to participate. wants to do that. tell me how to sell it. don't you got sick too. if only showed him a mo, that bone a bug completely resume his major concern is that the day
after an american strike gossip would still be there and might even use chemical weapons again. so then we have to hit again and maybe this time a bit harder and take out some more air defense. and then again, the logic would be to escalate into a bigger strike. and i think the president's concern was he would not be in control of that decision. it would be awesome. mm. mm. november marx, desist anniversary of the street between the colombians, faith and fark rebels. but the security situation and conflict regents like hearing coca is far from resolved. can the government feel, deliver on the promise piece, special coverage on all 0? can you hear it?
