america and other countries should protect us they're committing sin here our children and women is there really no mercy but rather clearly this is an occupation we are a peaceful people we are talking about this placement and effectively genocide of innocents kurdish civilians innocent communities within that region the kurds have always been on the defensive but now they may they must the fan themselves and their families which means that unfortunately they may not be able to police the camps that hold isis and the isis prisoners it is now going to cause a big vacuum and a significant problem in terms of security in fans of has sparked runways around the world people in the u.s. france germany and other countries have joined procreation protest apparation has also been condemned by the international community germany france and others have gone so far as to halt arms exports to turkey at present and one has threatened to

send refugees in turkey to the e.u. if it continues to condemn ankara's actions. we have 3600000 syrian refugees in our country waiting to go back home hey european union come to your senses i'll say it again at the moment of our operation you cannot define it as an invasion our job is easy we can open the doors and 3600000 refugees we will send them back to you. the operation falls president all trumps decision to withdraw u.s. troops from the region he defended the move saying the kurds did not help the u.s. during world war 2. we have no soldiers at the area. we've been talking to turkey for 3 years they've been wanting to do this for many years as you know they've been fighting each other for centuries now the kurds are fighting for their land just so you understand they didn't help us in the 2nd world war they didn't help us with no normandy as an example that move was condemned both within
8:04 am
the u.s. and abroad with republicans and democrats saying the president is betraying the kurds are down of looks back now at u.s. relations with the group over the decades. it seemed impossible sounded like crazy talk and yet it happened a moment of unity between republicans and democrats as they both condemned america's disloyalty to its kurdish allies the person who united states is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven this is that crazy. which allies in syria or elsewhere in the middle east will fully trust the word of president trump in the future the thing all of these politicians pundits and channels seem to forget though is that the kurds i used to waking up to a groundhog day of american betrayal the only difference is that it's been going on for more than half a century and hasn't been funny at all. in

the fifty's and early sixty's the cia pushed the kurds to revolt against baghdad as part of their efforts to overthrow their leader a bill karim kassim eventually he was toppled by but the new ruler wasn't a big fan of ideal of kurdish independence so he bombed them into submission bombed with napalm kindly provided by the united states. the kurds seem to either have a short memory or a forgiving heart because in the 70s the u.s. was back on their good side iraq and iran were involved in a border dispute and washington was correctly supplying the minority with weapons once again pitching them against baghdad but then iraq and iran kissed and made up and all of a sudden the kurds were on their own being blown to pieces as they are supposed
8:06 am
transatlantic guardian angel was watching idly even the americans at the time admitted that keeping their involvement under wraps. was simply no excuse this policy was not imparted to our clients who were encouraged to continue fighting even in the context of covert action ours was a cynical enterprise hoovered action should not be confused with missionary work. fast forward to the eighty's and for the us it was the golden decade of big hair metallic umma dawn and m.t.v. for the kurds it was well just another decade of more u.s. betrayal in the late eighty's saddam hussein unleashed his chemical arsenal against them an atrocity looking bound to drop the wrath of the world's policeman but it was still a long time before saddam was to turn from friend to full so american wrath didn't
8:07 am
go further than statements like these we want to maintain good political and economic relations with iraq but the issue of chemical weapons gets in the way of that. in 2003 it looked like the u.s. was finally ready to make amends for its decades of forsaking the kurds helping them was among the pretexts for the invasion of iraq but then even in washington many took such goals with a pinch of salt the kurds have every reason to believe or think that they will be betrayed again by the united states or so often in the past contractors' spectacle of our inviting turks in to this war earlier trying to bribe them into it could not have been reassuring to the kurds even under the turks before trial against betraying the kurds that is your point yeah surely your point is that because we betrayed them in the past we should betray the list type not that we should trust we will we will not will not yes they did in 2007 the us let turkey have its way
8:08 am
with the kurdish rebels in iraq as ankara launched a lethal bombing raid against them this is of course nowhere near you fall is. by 2019 america had left because 4 dead a few more times both in iraq and syria. american traditions go beyond partisan lines america loves having turkey on thanksgiving going to the pumpkin patch for halloween and launching fireworks on the 4th of july screwing the kurds over is nothing but a decades long political tradition for america and they will abide by it be the democrat or republican. ecuador is in the grip of anti austerity protests despite present london merinos military backed curfew that was imposed on saturday earlier that day people attacked government buildings and a t.v. station more than a week has passed since people 1st flooded the streets to oppose government cuts on

a 2 week protest campaign to draw attention to the problem of climate change more than a 1000 activists were arrested in london demonstrators tried to shut down major locations like westminster bridge and city airports trolleys were held across the globe to from north america to australia for more than 10 people were detained for blocking a major intersection. among extinction rebellions key demands are that governments declare a climate emergency halt the loss of biodiversity and drastically reduce carbon emissions by 2025 however their actions have divided opinion here some of the reaction we've been hearing. extinction rebellion is without question britain's fastest growing pagan religion and the reason i refer to as a pagan religion is just as all the classic hallmarks of a group of religious fundamentalists a belief that their view is the only view that's acceptable and a desire to shut down everything that does not talk to their worldview they fundamental belief that they are in charge and everybody else also go to their beck
