Mohammad Marandi, chair of American studies at the University of Tehran, joins Christiane Amanpour to discuss the shocking targeted strike on one of Iran's top generals, Qasem Soleimani. He was killed in an U.S. airstrike whilst he was visiting Iraq and it has prompted both celebration and deep concern for how this will impact the already tense relations between the two nations. Democratic Senator Chris Murphy explains why this violates congressional rules and procedures and how the House plan to stop what they see as President Trump waging an undemocratic war in Iran. Ayad Allawi, the former Prime Minister of Iraq, reflects on the fact this controversial and deadly airstrike occurred on his country's soil. In response, Iraq voted to expel U.S. forces and President Trump is threatening sanctions if they make good on their word. Allawi digs down into what he sees are the next steps for the players involved. Stephen Hadley, former U.S. National Security Advisor, unpacks the strength of the evidence for Soleimani's killing. Lastly, Tim Flannery, the man at the helm of Climate Council Australia, talks passionately about the devastating fires that are consuming Australia killing millions of animals in its wake. He explains about the science and policy that is causing this crisis. via Knit
