what we're seeing are empty shelves in the united states supply chain issues. and that's led to some low approval ratings for joe biden. the world health organization is wanting that could be another 700000 deaths from coven 19 in europe . by march. cases have been rising as the weather gets colder, with the daily rate doubling since late september. a jury in the u. s. state of georgia is considering its verdict in the racially charged trial over ahmad aubrey's death. 3 white men are accused of chasing down and killing the 25 year old black man. last year. 17 white supremacist leaders and organizations in the u. s. have been ordered to pay more than $25000000.00 in damage for the violence that erupted during a fall right rally in 2017. lucy was brought by 9 people who suffered physical and emotional injuries. during a unite to write rally and charlottesville, virginia, the us special envoy for libya, has quit just weeks ahead of planned elections. no official reasons been given for

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 him how to persuade the challenge, let wouldn't know xerox below for correct. and she had yelled emotional dishes, ian. and she's at mann in mann enough. oh really my food ought to be young to mammon. habit daily shout. hell healthy. ah. 2 sad release, many of these members of owned opposition groups from jail since the start of the uprising. some had joined iso. i'm assad realised that this was the group that the west was more concerned about perhaps than any other in
2014, i. so took the tone of rocca, i moved quickly across syria, largely at the expense of other opposition groups. ah, news of on the market. leap. almost every dose is more, more talk to you. good. you lose it's a village. owed to the good bush that about the da busha we saw repeated instances where the syrian government basically would not attack the sonic state here. sometimes we sign sentences where the atlantic state might attack a free syrian army unit, and the syrian government would come in and bomb them by air, or maybe an hour later or 2 hours later. and i, it looked like tactical, co operation, honest. and we saw many instances in that, especially in the area around a laptop. for example,
a dash 2 me social see no sale. you don't thought ruby thought. well, oh, it's hard to keep all blue she be on new off when york's washing akita vaughan due to the daughter. oh, boy bell was a toy to so in. so so obvious. you aid ye bellow, jim. i don't mean that they don't ever fight this long stick. sometimes they fight this limits 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, 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 war and see it 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 west until in dive. jen managed until talk to jen manners. the syrian president gave interviews to several major media outlets around the world. nobody should have got a la carte army that if the moment give to tom and my little media, let it be, it gives the time on my letter it army letter b or door acting on
a sore on you, lila had a better but any to float mccartney, i'm delighted at all. la michelle. i said i send anybody in all his interviews. he insisted, eats me on chaos. you have invasion of terrorist coming from abroad and the government is doing. it's a job in fighting and defending it. it's country her saddle, thought it out of the the monica jani folder equipment booklet and shuttle and also he alyssa dominy, i'm a fool alderman, thought he over here let that come. i kind of thought for phil and i'm a little be, be and not all the a thought a shabby long young line. charlotte, she took the day match, the bush auto said, did you a good day, contributed passa dumpsters to not meet is what's on there. monte approval. deborah key for miss wood. young. you know, you know, she will be them all the ship. i think for bashar alas side to present himself to
the united states and to europe. as the, as the alternative. ah, to crazy sectarian people. i think this has been part of his strategy since day one, day one movie ah, by presenting himself as the alternative to what he called terrorists. i felt convinced many to overlook his governance crimes like these camps, where 17000 people, including women and children, were tortured to death lane. ah, ah evening. they took me to the full and yeah, mr. to man, the 1st was shin. why you'd want like a shuttle, as it should
have slipped a new one, celia and this is usually a tools to collect on formation after that, and the 5th, i'm in 2012 at become the thought. shut of not a toys for collecting information. it's a goals tortured for torture, torture for destroyed verb her of the but is another. meanwhile, our side presented himself as a protector of minorities, including christians, and as a buffer against violent on groups. some political leaders visited damascus and were warmly received with the west prioritize to it's fight against
iso. we're in the autumn of 2015, they decided to launch their 1st air strikes in syria against i saw rather than government forces. they also cut back on their support of opposition groups. this took the military pressure off the salient army. i'm gave acid precious breathing space. oh, that's good enough long enough. go under your deductible on the list of god visual of your ideas. oh god, i don't know. one of the other that i saw the situation remained to 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 or during the school, or what could have known in what can be in june, olivia calling on behalf of one anthea theone will be date of the month. we asked that our shuttle 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 would that ocean, as you know, is betty historic who's in, wanted to stay a step ahead of the west and to revive russian influence in the middle east. a while. and he thought that having survived so far suggested that aside could be relied upon the child that had been had now come for
a new model of the scholarship on her with her nationalist. none was good on the widow's loser, but there were spoken national. there were social but from worst with backups. them . okay. now recorded to still annoy the army on me. all of her stephen our food though and their city has not begun yet. almost her. yes sir, when you were legal bullshit my dearly or personally but them was good in the way in the public. though. glaucoma alicia in a move the took the west by surprise. russia now intervened insignia in a big way. officially they were fighting ice all, but the fights suggested otherwise. ah, it's hostess, it's love which city does that up? walk at 20 these god road. is you relocation with the late it be dis, sir?
marble bash it did loom just have to all right. but 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. 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 lap of the country. second largest city had been an opposition stronghold and a symbol of hole didn't like it at the other than a food. and although less of the food, what is the theme of believe that is on the duty of the feel fellow, by the 5th of one of the whole of the money that while us had remained in
power, obama's turn ended in 2070. and donald trump became us president from relative inexperience and his perceived closeness to vladimir putin, may have encouraged asset to authorize further chemical attacks in april 2018. and we begin today 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, 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 sir, i was at the white house in the u. s. had to decide what the response would big this telling us was homeless and bombed several military targets. they were backed by france under president emmanuel, michael presidio to maturity prices on mom to finish. for me me on was of fishy sydney huck. remiss sash. josh, or schoo, sad c. it's similar, fuss me. you know, for example, tomorrow not the new quote year rossi, damascus, or the trust related lawsuit. clean demos has shown the fitness blow in 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 maddie. thus they one of the problems. and sometimes he act like al maddie, when he speaks with his surroundings and friends, this is what we heard from our friends in damascus, the quinn, nathan nevada, cliche for were there thought are looking for new sheila hump well to thought aloud
. ah, ah, what a 3rd of the country still remained beyond gosset's control the kurtz alongside european and american special forces controlled the ne turkey controlled the northwest to contain the carts and back the opposition and id label in the south. a large zone was controlled by us forces and israel carried out regular air strikes against iranian positions in 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
and had it 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 a follow up discussions with pohden. i believe that the russians 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 some one with a less checkered 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 hunt, either by the light, looking to full beaten li co, selfless will be caught the lucky. what to li, putting on an unsatisfactory look, what's what followed? i'm michelle said zed. what did he at any auto, landman, iran and norton wish it act out a be a be soria probiotic a half is elena, have no doubt that they will 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 apps lulac spect 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 hadn't 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 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 threat was iran, and it was the iranian presence and syria that made the u. s. under trump,
keep large numbers of troops in ne area, but us on has been left walking a tightrope. he has had to tread carefully to avoid provoking major powers like the u. s. or exhausting the patients of his backers, russia and iran. he also faces serious domestic challenges. his country is in ruins. half of the previous 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 u. s. dollars per day. to the coven dynamic has made the situation even worse. even our sides own aloe white community has shown signs of discontent. fresh protests had broken out in some cities reclaimed by the government. there was 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 backups. 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 instead of the gulf states that give me the money in order to separate myself from iran and he would go to iran. he said that that is your health. because otherwise, i would be fallen under under russia. you would go thought i
shot until then at the you need to help me more because i'm am falling into under a lawn. and he would go into your old telling them it's a unique to help me for that construction. i need your money. i will otherwise would, there wouldn't be a new wave if refugees and you would go to you as you need to cooperate with me in the security matters because we have a lot of fires for all these therapist. and i says, this is how we play the game from my, from a lot. okay. ah,
with step beyond the comfort zone, where assumptions are challenged, traveled to the ends of the earth, and further experience the unimaginable of the people who live it is probably the most extreme situation i've been involved in how quickly things contract award winning documentary is that also a perception witness on al jazeera, there was, since i was a little boy in india, my dream was to make bollywood fence. so finally i was going to doing one man's quest to realize a lifelong ambition. this duty i chose was of my own village and it does permission going behind the lens as got him saying rings his personal story to life. al jazeera correspondent,
