Is Israel Thinking About a Military Strike on Iran? History Tells Us It's Possible.
Mon, 24 Jun 2019 03:48:00 -0400
Is Israel Thinking About a Military Strike on Iran? History Tells Us It's Possible.Iran shot down a U.S. drone on June 19, further escalating tensions between Iran and its adversaries.Relations with Iran have been worsening for months. In early May, one year after the United States withdrew from the nuclear deal negotiated in 2015 between Iran, the U.S., the European Union and five other countries, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that his country may also withdraw from the agreement, which limits its ability to develop nuclear weapons in exchange for lifting sanctions.In June, Rouhani announced that Iran will restart uranium enrichment, which could put the country on track to develop a nuclear weapon within a year. Rouhani’s government insists its uranium will go to civilian nuclear power, not weapons.As a “deterrent” to Iran, the United States is sending an additional 1,000 troops to the Middle East.The U.S. is not the only country considering a military response in Iran.“Israel will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on June 17. Netanyahu also said Iran must be punished for violating the nuclear agreement.Israel, which has faced threats to its national security since its founding as a Jewish homeland in the Middle East in 1948, is known to take aggressive, preventive action to protect itself – including by launching preemptive strikes on neighboring nations it perceives as threatening.If international relations with Iran grow more volatile, Israel could take dramatic, unilateral action against its neighbor and longtime adversary.How the Begin Doctrine justifies preemptive strikesI’m an international security scholar who studies Israel’s proactive use of its military to prevent nuclear buildup in the Middle East.
Judge allows Missouri's only abortion clinic to stay open for at least five more days
Mon, 24 Jun 2019 15:30:18 -0400
Judge allows Missouri's only abortion clinic to stay open for at least five more daysMissouri health officials on Friday refused to renew the St. Louis clinic's license on the grounds that it failed to meet their standards. On Monday, Stelzer ruled the clinic can stay open until Friday but ruled that the case must go before the Administrative Hearing Commission, which serves as an independent arbiter in disputes between state agencies and individuals or groups. If Missouri officials succeed in closing the clinic, the state would become the only U.S. state without a legal abortion facility.
GOP Rep: Trump Hatred Could Be Driving Reports of Awful Conditions at Detention Centers
Tue, 25 Jun 2019 00:09:51 -0400
GOP Rep: Trump Hatred Could Be Driving Reports of Awful Conditions at Detention CentersMSNBCAmid reports of migrant children suffering in inhumane and squalid conditions at Texas border detention centers, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) suggested on Monday night the reports could be untrue because of the hatred many feel for the president.Appearing on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, the Texas lawmaker was asked by host Chris Hayes whether he agreed that “these kinds of conditions are appalling and unacceptable,” something Burgess was unwilling to fully concede.Noting that “it’s always been tough” at a number of facilities at the border, Burgess went on to describe the Custom and Border Patrol agents as heroes, insisting that they don’t get enough credit for the humane work they do. Hayes, meanwhile, pressed the congressman to address the conditions at the facilities, specifically at the center in Clint, Texas, where hundreds of young migrants were reportedly detained in a “chaotic scene of sickness and filth.” Following the reports of overcrowding and inadequate food and sanitation, all but 30 children were removed from the center.Burgess, however, asserted that he hadn’t seen anything like that at the centers he’d visited, causing Hayes to ask if Burgess thought reporters and lawyers were “making it up.” Once again, the Republican lawmaker insisted that wasn’t what he’d seen, noting that he hadn’t been to the Clint facility.“You think this is fictional?!” Hayes exclaimed.“I don’t know if it’s hyperbole,” Burgess replied. “I know that the hatred for this president is so intense, people are liable to say anything. I got to go look for myself and see for myself.”Moments later, Hayes confronted Burgess over reports that children in the facilities had “lice crawling through their heads,” causing the congressman to claim that the kids “arrive with the lice.”“You don’t know that,” the MSNBC host exploded. “You do not know that!”“I do,” Burgess stated.Hayes pushed back and pointed to reports that children in the Clint facility had contracted the flu there, leading Burgess to bring up another facility altogether.“That is not true. When I was down in McAllen—” Burgess said, prompting Hayes to fire back that they were talking about Clint and the lawmaker had admitted he hadn’t been there.“I just talked to the lawyer who was just in Clint, Texas,” the All In host exclaimed. “You just told me you’re not in Clint, Texas. You don’t know what they got.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast hereGet our top stories in your inbox every day.

Sun, 23 Jun 2019 11:29:33 -0400
Trump says reelection 'easier' if he is impeachedUS President Donald Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday his chances of retaining the White House in 2020 would be strengthened if Democratic lawmakers start impeachment proceedings against him.

Mahathir Says He Underestimated Challenge of Governing Malaysia
Mon, 24 Jun 2019 01:50:38 -0400
Mahathir Says He Underestimated Challenge of Governing Malaysia(Bloomberg) -- Malaysia’s Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said he underestimated the challenges of governing the country before his shock election victory last year.“I underestimated because we were on the outside and we didn’t get any information on what was happening on the inside,” Mahathir said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Haslinda Amin in Bangkok at the 5th Bloomberg Asean Business Summit. “We are having a very tough time dealing with damages in the finances as well as the crimes that were committed.”Here are some key comments from the interview:1MDBGoldman Sachs offered “a little compensation” versus the “huge killing” it made, Mahathir said, noting he was unsure where the money lost from the 1MDB scandal has gone.The scandal surrounding 1MDB sprawls from the U.S. to Switzerland, reaching the highest levels of Malaysian politics while ensnaring Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in its first criminal case. Mahathir has raised the amount he wants to recoup from 1MDB to $7 billion after previously saying he sought $4.5 billion that U.S. prosecutors estimated went missing from the state fund. So far, the Southeast Asian country has brought back less than $500 million.Mahathir said in May he was awaiting a response from Goldman Sachs before deciding whether to take legal action against the bank over “too high” fees on 1MDB bond sales. Malaysia had already announced criminal charges against Goldman in December, accusing the lender of misleading investors when it knew that funds raised from the $6.5 billion bond offer it arranged would be misappropriated. The bank said it will defend against the allegations.ChinaMahathir disagreed he was sending a message to the U.S. by taking China’s side on certain issues. It’s “free speech,” he said. “I don’t like the old idea of cooking something up in the West and then asking us to accept them. China is a bit more sensitive to our feelings.”On the resumed multi-billion dollar rail project, he said: “We were able to renegotiate the terms of the contract. It is quite obvious that the contract was overpriced.,” he said. The government considered dropping the project altogether “but did not want to pay huge compensation on it.”The project will now cost 44 billion ringgit ($10.7 billion) instead of the original 65.5 billion ringgit, according to a statement from the prime minister’s office in April.SuccessionLast May, Mahathir led Malaysia to its first change in government since its independence from Britain in 1957. The country is set for another political shift as he is expected to hand over power to Anwar Ibrahim, who said Mahathir had made it “very clear” that Anwar would get the top seat by May next year.Mahathir said he will hand over to Anwar in “a year or so.” He doesn’t want to leave Malaysia in shambles, he said, pointing to the state of the country when his predecessor Najib Razak was ousted.“I made a promise, I keep my promise,” Mahathir said. When asked why he was reluctant to set a date for the handover, Mahathir said it was because “there may be something I need to do before I step down,” noting he wanted to fix Malaysia’s debt.When asked whether he had changed, Mahathir replied: “I don’t know, I’m still myself. Well I want to work for the country. I don’t have much of a future so the last thing I want to do is to go away leaving the country in shambles, like the previous one.”EconomyMahathir has trimmed state spending to narrow the budget deficit to 3.4% of gross domestic product this year, from a five-year high of 3.7% last year. Fiscal recovery remains fragile as the government spends billions rescuing troubled institutions from the Hajj fund to an agency overseeing farmers. His administration replaced a sweeping goods-and-services tax with a more targeted consumption tax last year, and is now counting on state oil company dividends to support revenue.The government would be careful in choosing buyers for beleaguered national carrier Malaysian Airlines Bhd, he said Friday, noting: “If there is a good offer, we will consider.”(Updates with Mahathir comment in 14th paragraph. An earlier version of this story corrected a quote in 3rd and 11th paragraphs from story that moved on Friday.)To contact the reporters on this story: Yudith Ho in Kuala Lumpur at;Anisah Shukry in Kuala Lumpur at ashukry2@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Ruth Pollard at rpollard2@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
