  • THANK YOU.

  • ARTHEL: AS GREG IS REPORTING,

  • TENSIONS STILL SIMMERING BETWEEN

  • WASHINGTON AND TEHRAN.

  • THE STATE DEPARTMENT SLAPPING

  • NEW SANCTIONS ON THE IRANIAN

  • GENERAL ACCUSED OF ORDERING

  • TROOPS TO OPEN FIRE ON

  • PROTESTERS BACK IN NOVEMBER,

  • AROUND 150 PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN

  • THAT INCIDENT.

  • WE ARE ALSO LEARNING THAT 11

  • AMERICANS WERE HURT LAST WEEK

  • AFTER IRAN FIRED MISSILES AT TWO

  • IRAQI BASES HOUSING U.S. TROOPS.

  • PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW ENGAGING IN

  • A WAR OF WORDS WITH IRAN'S

  • SUPREME LEADER SAYING ON

  • TWITTER, QUOTE, INSTEAD OF

  • LEADING IRAN TOWARD RUIN, ITS

  • LEADER SHOULD ABANDON TERROR AND

  • MAKE IRAN GREAT AGAIN.

  • WHERE DOES DIPLOMACY GO FROM

  • HERE, LET'S BRING IN VINNIE

  • BOWLES, THE ARMY'S FORMER

  • ASSISTANT DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF.

  • GOOD TO SEE YOU.

  • >> GOOD TO SEE YOU, ARTHEL.

  • ARTHEL: THANK YOU.

  • >> ALWAYS A PLEASURE.

  • ARTHEL: IS DIPLOMACY DEAD,

  • GENERAL BOWLES?

  • >> NO, IT'S NOT DEAD.

  • A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FOCUSING ON

  • THE WORDS.

  • AS ALWAYS IN THAT PART OF THE

  • WORLD, BEHAVIOR IS BELIEVABLE.

  • I WOULD WATCH WHAT IRAN DOES,

  • NOT JUST WHAT THE AYATOLLAH

  • SAYS, SPECIFICALLY WILL THEY

  • TAKE THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO

  • MOVE FORWARD AND ENGAGE IN SOME

  • KIND OF A NEGOTIATION TO GET TO

  • LOWER THE TEMPERATURE OR WILL

  • THEY CONTINUE TO EXPLOIT THEIR

  • TERRORISM AS THEY DO THROUGHOUT

  • THE REGION.

  • ARTHEL: SO THAT CHANNEL

  • DIPLOMACY IS ALIVE.

  • MEANWHILE, MORE U.S. ECONOMIC

  • SANCTIONS RAINING DOWN ON

  • IRANIAN LEADERS.

  • AND IRAN HAS INTERNAL PROBLEMS

  • WITH MORE LOCALS PROTESTING

  • AGAINST THOSE IRANIAN LEADERS.

  • SO WHO OR WHAT COUNTRY IS

  • PROVIDING IRAN WITH A LIFELINE

  • AT THIS TIME?

  • >> THREE PREDOMINANTLY, NORTH

  • KOREA IS PROVIDING THEM MISSILE

  • TECHNOLOGY AND HAS BEEN FOR

  • QUITE A FEW YEARS AND THEN ON

  • TOP OF THAT ALSO, AS RECENTLY

  • HAPPENED, RUSSIA AND CHINA WERE

  • ENGAGED IN NAVAL EXERCISESES

  • WITH THEM IN THE PERSIAN GULF.

  • THAT'S SOME AREA THEY'RE GETTING

  • STABILITY AND SOME SUPPORT FROM

  • I THINK AS WELL AS SOME NATIONS

  • IN THE REGION WHO HAVE MAYBE NOT

  • BOLDLY BUT AT LEAST SUPPORTED

  • THEM.

  • ARTHEL: ALL THAT, AS YOU LAID

  • OUT, WHAT'S THE U.S.'S NEXT

  • MOVE, DIPLOMATICALLY, MILITARILY

  • OR OTHERWISE?

  • >> FROM A MILITARY PERSPECTIVE,

  • IT HAS TO BE SECURITY.

  • I THINK THE UNKNOWN IN THIS

  • EQUATION IS IRAQ.

  • IRAQ, WHAT WE REALLY HAVE TO

  • WATCH IS IRAQ DOES NOT WANT TO

  • BE SER

  • BE PERCEIVED AS THE CHEW TOY

  • BETWEEN AN IRAN, U.S. FIGHT AND

  • DON'T WANT TO BE PERCEIVED AS

  • OUR LACKEY AND DOING WHATEVER WE

  • WANT THEM TO DO.

  • IRAQ IS THE UNKNOWN.

  • IT'S UNFOLDING.

  • SO I THINK DEALING WITH THE

  • IRAQI ADMINISTRATIONS THAT ARE

  • THERE NOW WITH THE PRIME

  • MINISTER AND THE FORCES THERE

  • AND MAINTAINING THEIR STRENGTH

  • AND STABILITY IS KEY FOR US.

  • ARTHEL: WE KNOW PRESIDENT TRUMP

  • IS SAYING THAT THE U.S. IS GOING

  • TO KEEP THE TROOPS IN IRAQ, I

  • BELIEVE WE HAVE SOME 5,000,

  • 5,300, AND IF YOU HAVE TO YOUR

  • POINT, IF YOU HAVE IRAQ WANTING

  • TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE A SPINE

  • AND THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE

  • ORDERED AROUND BY AMERICA, HOW

  • DOES THAT WORK OUT?

  • WHAT'S THE NEGOTIATION THERE, TO

  • KEEP THE AMERICAN TROOPS THERE,

  • TO KEEP STABILITY OVER THERE,

  • AND TO LET IRAQ CONTINUE TO BE

  • INDEPENDENT?

  • >> WELL, CANDIDLY, WE HAVEN'T

  • HANDLED IT WELL, IN MY OPINION.

  • THE PRIME MINISTER HAD ASKED

  • THAT THE U.S. SEND A DELEGATION

  • OVER SO THEY COULD DISCUSS THE

  • STATUS OF FORCES AND THE U.S.

  • TROOPS IN THE REGION, YOU HOW

  • THAT COULD BE MANAGED -- HOW

  • THAT COULD BE MANAGED.

  • THE RESPONSE FROM THE SECRETARY

  • OF STATE AND OTHERS WAS TO FUSE

  • THEIR REQUEST AND SAY WE'LL BE

  • HAPPY TO TALK ABOUT COST SHARING

  • AND BURDEN SHARING BUT THERE'S

  • NO NECESSITY FOR US TO GO OVER

  • AND TALK ABOUT REMOVAL OF U.S.

  • FORCES ORS TROOPS.

  • DESPITE OUR BEST EFFORTS, THAT

  • CAN'T HELP BUT COME ACROSS TO

  • BOTH THE IRAQI ADD A MEDICINE

  • STRAYINGS AND THE --

  • ADMINISTRATION AND IRAQI PEOPLE

  • AS ARROGANT.

  • ARTHEL: WE'LL SEE HOW THAT

  • PLAYS OUT AND WE'LL HAVE YOU

  • BACK TO ANALYZE THAT FOR US.

  • FINALLY, WE HAD GREG PALKOT

  • REPORTING THAT IRAN IS GOING TO

  • SEND THE BLACK BOXESES FROM THE

  • UKRAINIAN FLIGHT THEY

  • ACCIDENTALLY SHOT DOWN.

  • IS THAT THEIR WAY OF SAYING

  • WE'RE TRYING TO BEHAVE MORE LIKE

  • A NOR L

  • A NORMAL STATE?

  • >> I THINK IT'S THEIR WAY TO

  • TRYING TO SHOW A OTHER NATIONS,

  • UKRAINE, CANADA, EUROPE, THIS IS

  • AN EFFORT TO SHOW THOSE NATIONS

  • THAT IRAN IS NOT WITHOUT A

  • HEART, NOR WITHOUT A BRAIN TO

  • ACTIVELY OPEN THEIR -- OPEN

  • THEMSELVES SO THEY CAN HANDLE

  • THIS ISSUE.

  • AND IT'S THEIR APOLOGY AS WELL

THANK YOU.
