Thanks let's bring in Bill Richardson now former US ambassador to the United Nations former governor of of the city Mexico and one who's in the know on these matters.
It this feels like we're changing here.
What what I think it's happening is a calculation by Israel.
That does Syria.
Is not gonna respond to Israel's attacks on these sophisticated weapons and I think that is.
Israel wants to defend itself.
And I think what is also being shown ship is I think the president's reluctance on the Red Line.
Is correct we don't know who's using it although I think it is likely it is likely that it's being used by by the Syrian government and and what do what do you make of this red line talk and the president's.
In action on the matter and how we don't have enough information to know for sure it setter.
Well I think what it's gonna happen and it and what has been signaled by the president is press conference last week in recent developments.
Like the brits and the French are going in and helping.
The rebels like the head of the rebels saying that they have no ties to al-Qaeda that the next step is going to be.
Air strikes on the part of the United States.
Two -- protects some of the rebel groups.
Possibly to go against some of those chemical missile sites.
That we probably know where they are.
NATO being part of -- our allies being part of the -- I think that's what's gonna happen next.
And I think the president has been right to.
To show the restraint that -- yes you've -- that you believe action on the president's part is in minutes what kind of action.
Well I I I'm not in the know I'm not in the administration -- here in Santa Fe.
But just these signals -- that are being sent.
Our allies are doing -- Britain and France that provide some cover the fact that the rebel leader eateries as saying.
We have no ties to al-Qaeda.
The fact that Israel is defending itself I think appropriately the fact that Syria is not gonna respond.
To Israel and I don't think Hezbollah will leave there.
Because Israel is very strong you don't want.
If -- Hezbollah of your series you don't want another bite.
You already have a huge fight on your hands with the Israelis so I think it was sound calculation but yeah it's worrisome because it's.
More of a conflict more of a conflagration.
You don't want this to spread the former governor and former ambassador Bill Richardson sir what while I still have you here over the weekend.
You said that this Pressman senator -- at a Texas Ted -- should be able to call himself Hispanic what was that.
Now that that was a misunderstanding I said that.
He shouldn't be defined as a Hispanic.
-- Hispanic I don't define myself just as good Hispanic.
So -- that that was misinterpreted.
But there's a lot of politics in there but you years and his are different.
We got we have different views but he's.
US senator -- he was elected we disagree on immigration but all I was saying is.
I don't consider myself just -- Hispanic and he shouldn't be defined just -- that they Hispanic.
There were other things that's what I said got -- governor Richardson thanks for that appreciate it.
Are all right care.
