BREAKING NEWS: EYGPT’S new PRESIDENT bold move to FIRE 2 generals US SHOCK and HORRIFIED by DECISION

Egypt’s presidents taken his most decisive step yet to assert power of the influential military sacking to top generals the defense minister who served as the country’s interim leader after hosny mubarak was ousted and also dismissed it was the chief of staff what’s he started to move more boldly against the army after an attack by militants in Sinai that killed 16 border guards there’s no talk to Asia Times correspondent Pepe Escobar hi there Pepe things have been on the line with us tonight from Hong Kong tonight I see there now is the sacking of these two top generals a sign that the military’s decades-long rule is coming to an end in Egypt do you think now it’s much more complicated than that Kevin in fact the Emir of Qatar went to Cairo a few hours later Morsi made his move what does that tell you it tells you that first of all Morsi got two billion dollars from the Emir of Qatar personally instead of morsing going to Mac and talking to the house of South this is something that happened two weeks ago the Emir of Qatar actually went to Cairo talk to Marci gave him two billion dollars as a star and immediately afterwards Morsi made his move which was a counter-coup I guess the previous coup against the Muslim Brotherhood it’s so romantic it’s so late it’s so late as you’re saying so a foreign hand at work here let’s talk about these new appointments the new defense ministers also taking over as the head of the military councils of former intelligence chief he also started in the US what can we expect from Emlyn well basically from the Muslim Brotherhood point of view they don’t want any more frictions between scaff and the preston so we can say that for the moment the score is muslim brotherhood one scoffs zero the problem is the military even if the junta is realigned now or rearrange they control almost forty percent of the Egyptian economy Egypt is broke has no money they have an annual deficit of 36 billion dollars so these two billion dollars from Qatar it’s a little bit of help but not much because a tourism in Egypt they used to get like five 27 billion dollars of interest nobody’s there’s no tourism in Egypt for months now and they have five billion dollars from the renting the Suez Canal and they have like four or five billion dollars from remittances from Egyptian workers they still have this enormous gap where’s the money coming from Qatar cannot pay for Egypt’s that indefinitely the house of south now they are horrified that in fact more see when they ask for money from the house of South two to three weeks ago the house on south side ok will study the situation now cutter steps in this means that now the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi as president they are extremely powerful against rearranged and weakened juta the junta they don’t have a response for the moment so I am betting in the long run that they will let Egypt collapse in terms of being practically defaulting or broke or unable to pay its bills and then maybe later they will rearrange another Egyptian military coup and go back to power I can so coming from the yeah I can see you coming from I mean so you kind of answered my last question really I was gonna ask you what about the dismissed generals they’ve already been offered new roles as advisers to the government is that just a face save oh yes this is this is cosmetic having totally in fact this is you know that medals a Medal of Honor savior of the nation that kind of stuff is just rhetoric and medals not much workers are except it’s accept them we should expect something to happen not immediately in terms of a counter-coup by scarf because the Judah is still there even if they are prayer their prerogatives in terms of that constitutional amendment which transferred powers from the president’s to them now Morse avoided that completely they may have some cards to play and don’t forget very good relationship with the Pentagon I’m sure a lot of people in Washington horrified about the Morsi move and they really are the Israelis are totally freaking out with the Morsi move because now they say that each has become an Islamic dictatorship so there could be some counter coups from foreign actors as well I mean I mean any prey in Saudi Arabia and a final thought on the streets we’ve seen President Morsi supporters running again Ontario square they’re happy the top browse apparently had been ordered to resign do you think we’ll see new clashes over this with the Muslim Brotherhood and the military rallying supporters well briefly yeah yes absolutely Carrie I was talking to a very good Egyptian a writer journalist yesterday he was explaining to me basically that the Muslim Brotherhood is not widely popular in Egypt they very well organized they have four or five different strands they manage to organized quickly they won’t the elections but this doesn’t mean that they are popular in the long run in the long run if Egypt has more secular political parties including the people who started the revolution in Tahrir Square the whole situation will change and Muslim Brotherhood cannot count on remaining in power indefinitely in Egypt ok thanks for your thoughts could have you on the program Pepe Escobar there danger times correspondent in Hong Kong

with the latest good morning Greg very good morning Heather that’s right tough talk coming from the Trump administration about a North Korea coming specifically from national security adviser general HR McMaster speaking to Fox News on Sunday he said in fact that the Trump administration will deal with any issues coming from Pyongyang take a listen if necessary the president and you know States will have to take care of it because he said he’s not going to allow this murderous rogue regime to threaten the United States this all comes as the u.s. and South Korea launch huge joint aerial military drills starting today going through all this week some 230 aircraft involved including stealth aircraft as well as 12,000 US service members both marine and Navy they’re being deployed from eight different bases in the region now all of this is annual free plan but it does come in the wake of last week’s launching of an ICBM by North Korea the longest range most powerful ever capable according to experts that we spoke with of heating all of the US mainland a nuclear payload potentially regime Kim jong-un following that said that they had completed their rocket and nuclear arsenal as for these exercises over the weekend pyongyang state media saying that all of this pushes the Korean Peninsula to the brink of nuclear war and just for good measure they branded president Trump insane a couple more comments from general McMaster Heather also telling FOX that the president has told his team to move as quickly as possible to deal with the situation very fast movements response to the recent missile launch from up north Seoul and Washington begin another a combined drill this one is the largest air force exercise to date and involves various wartime scenarios including targeting the regime’s key nuclear and missile facilities kim hyun-bin starts us off with how the Allies are speaking to Pyongyang using a language to her making them clearly and easily understand a massive show of force dozens of state-of-the-art American fighter jets including at point two Raptors and f-35 are blazing across the sky has surrounded the Korean Peninsula they’re going does training exercises to take out key North Korean nuclear facilities scores of fighter jets neutralize hostile threats while escorting bombers to their designated targets north of the border the bombers drop their bombs demolishing our targets the simulation of a possible wartime scenario is part of the major Air Force exercise dubbed vigilant ace it comes less than a week after North Korea launches newly developed and a continental as the missile the five-day exercises the largest ever combined Air Force drill between the two allies involving 230 warplanes and around 12,000 personnel the exercise is held annually we hold it to enhance our joint operations capabilities sixth twenty-twos and six f-35s have been deployed to the Korean Peninsula marking the first time the highly advanced Jets have cruised the skies above Korea at the same time other US assets include two b-1b bombers and six growler electronic warfare jets as well as dozens of them 15 in f-16s South Korea has deployed 90 fighter jets including its f15 NFA 50 fighters North Korea condemned the drills on Sunday saying they could lead to an all-out provocation that may lead to a nuclear war running a commentary North Korea’s state-run Rodong shinmun on sunday jeongyeon says such a drill is a dangerous provocation as is driving tensions on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of a war and that most South Korea and the u.s. puppet forces are foolish to run amok with such stealth fighters in your mind what is the greatest threat to national security well I say that as we look at a time horizon associated with threats the greatest immediate threat to the United States and to the world is the threat posed by the rogue regime in North Korea and his continued efforts to develop a long-range nuclear capability and so it’s immensely important that we work together with with all of our allies partners everyone internationally to convince Kim Jong on that the continued pursuit of these capabilities is a dead end for him and his regime  where are we with North Korea right now we’re getting close to a military conflict because North Korea is marching toward marrying up the technology of an ICBM with a nuclear weapon on top they can not only get to America but deliver the weapon we’re running out of time Master said that yesterday I’m going to urge the Pentagon not to send any more dependents to South Korea South Korea should be an unaccompanied tour is crazy to send spouses and children to South Korea given the provocation of North Korea so I want them to stop sending dependents and I think it’s now time to start moving American dependents out of South Korea in a massive show of force to North Korea South Korea and the United States have kicked off their largest Air Force exercise to date just five days after Pyongyang launched its new ICBM the drills will run through various wartime scenarios including targeting North Korea’s key nuclear and missile facilities defense ministry correspondent kim hyun-bin leading us off dozens of state of the heart American fighter jets including f-22 Raptors and f-35 are blazing across the sky as surrounding the Korean Peninsula they’re going this training exercises to take out keen work in nuclear facilities scores of fighter jets neutralize hostile threats while escorting bombers to their designated targets or to the border the bombers drop their bombs demolishing oughte targets the simulation of a possible war times part of the major Air Force exercises newly developed missile the pod day exercises the largest ever combined airports drill between the two allies involving two hundred dirty warplanes and around twelve thousand personnel the exercises how accurately hold it to enhance our joint information capabilities so anything sixth $0.22 six f-35s have been deployed to the Korean Peninsula marking the first time the highly advanced Jets after was disguised above Korea at the same time other US assets include two b-1b bombers and six growler electronic warfare jets as well as dozens of f-15s and f-16s South Korea has 2.90 fighter jets including a said 15 and if they fifty fighters North Korea condemned the drills on Sunday saying they could lead to an all-out provocation that may lead to a nuclear war running a commentary North Korea’s state-run Rodong shinmun on Sunday Pyongyang says such a drill is a dangerous provocation as is driving tensions on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of a war and that both South Korea and the u.s. puppet forces are foolish to run amok with such stealth fighters [Music] [Music] [Music] we’re being told that the ICBM the most recent launch broke up on re-entry is North Korea having trouble on that reentry step and thereby right now the u.s. overall is not at threat from their ballistic missiles well it’ll take some time to assess each of these missile launches but what is clear is that every time every time he conducts a missile launch a nuclear test he gets better and and whether it’s a success or failure isn’t as important as understanding that over the years he’s been learning from failures improving and thereby increasing his threat to all of us so has the potential of war with North Korea increased since this latest launch I think it’s increasing every day which means that we’re in a race really we’re in a race to be able to to solve this problem not just us right but the United States all of our allies and partners as we know China has tremendous coercive economic power over North North Korea but you can’t can shoot a missile without fuel right and and so there are there are ways to to address this problem a short sort of armed conflict but it is a race because he’s getting closer and closer and and there’s not much time left that this is a threat to everyone this is a global threat this is a threat to China what Kim Jong on is doing is driving us closer and closer together and and and and coalescing the international community against Kim Jong on if you think about what’s happened just in recent months and I think there this ought to be something maybe we ought to provide a roll up of but but countries across the globe have taken action beyond UN Security Council resolutions first of all South Korea and Japan are improving their defense capabilities at breakneck speed and they’re doing that in cooperation with us we’re doing that through a joint but bilateral most exercises and and multilateral exercises in Korea and elsewhere but also we’re doing it with with improved defense capabilities but what’s been striking I think is how many nations have expelled North Korean diplomats who have ceased all economic relations with North Korea this is from the the Philippines to Thailand to Vietnam to Sudan to Brazil to Mexico I mean so many examples of countries who are acting beyond the UN Security Council resolutions and and supporting all of our efforts to convince Kim Jong on that this is a dead end diplomatically and economically
