Congress fails to debate going to war with ISIS, the U.N. Climate Summit draws global leaders, and Hadi al-Bahra discusses the Syrian National Coalition's opposition movement. 

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> Jon: HEY EVERYBODY!

WELCOME TO THE DAILY SHOW! MYNAME IS JON STEWART.

WE HAVE A GOOD ONETONIGHT. LISTEN UP.

OH, YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE THISONE.

MY GUEST TONIGHT HADIAL-BAHRA, HE IS THE PRESIDENT

OF THE SYRIANNATIONAL COALITION, AND

I'M PRETTY SURE THEY'RE ON OURSIDE OR HE WOULDN'T BE HERE.

OF COURSE OUR NON WAR IN THE MIDEAST IS ONLY GETTING MORE

COMPLICATED.

THE U.S. AND ITS COALITION HASBEEN BOMBING THE REGION FOR

NEARLY A WEEK, AND, YOU KNOW,WE'RE JUST WONDER TO OURSELVES

HERE, ANYONE ELSE WANT IN ONTHIS? WHO'S GOT NEXT?

YOU KNOW, BEFORE ALL OF THE GOODBUILDINGS ARE GONE.

>> BRITISH PARLIAMENT ISEXPECTED TO VOTE SOON TO JOIN

THE AIR CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS.

PRIME MINISTER CAMERON RECALLEDLAW MAKERS FOR A SPECIAL SESSION

TO DEBATE THIS ISSUE.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: LAW -- LAW MAKERS DEBATE

THE ISSUE?

CAMERON, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITHTHAT ANSWERING QUESTIONS [BEEP].

YOU JUST WALK OUT ONTO YOUR LAWNAND YOU SAY WE'RE BOMBING

SOMEWHERE AND GO BACK INSIDE.

BADA BING BADA LITERAL BOOM.

DONE. I MEAN, WHAT ARE YOUDOING?

WHAT IS THERE EVEN TOTALK ABOUT?

>> LOOK AT WHAT THE HOUSE OFCOMMONS HAVE BROUGHT YOU.

IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, ANDTHIS GOVERNMENT LIBYA.

NONE ARE SUCCESS STORIES.

ARE WE GOING TO EMBARK ON ACTIONTHAT COULD LAST FOR YEARS?

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: WELL, SURE.

IF YOU WANT TO PUT IT INHISTORICAL CONTEXT.

>> WHY BRITISH MILITARY ACTIONAGAINST ISIL BARBARITY BUT NOT

ASSAD'S BUTCHERY?

>> SUCH ALLITERATIVE CRITICISM.

WELL, ALRIGHT, THAT'S ALLTHE TIME WE HAVE FOR THE --

UNSHAVEN BLOKE IN THE BACK, WHATDO YOU HAVE THERE?

>> THIS WILL NOT BE SOLVED BYBOMBING.

EVERYTHING WILL BE MADEWORSE.

EXTREMISM WILL SPREAD FURTHERAND DEEPER AROUND THE WORLD.

THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE CAN SEE IT,THAT THE FOOLS IN HERE WHO DRAW

BIG SALARIES AND BIG EXPENSESCAN NOT OR WILL NOT SEE IT

LIKE THE HONORABLE LADY WITHOUR ASININE INTERVENTION.

>> Jon: EXCELLENT POINT BY HOUSEOF COMMONS MEMBER GHOST OF JACOB

MARLEY.

HOLY. LISTEN AND LISTEN WELL!

THIS PARLIAMENT WILL BE VISITEDBY THREE GHOSTS.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: CAMERON, ARE YOU GOING

TO TAKE THIS NUANCED CRITICISM?

>> THERE IS A CLEAR LEGALBASE FOR U.K. MILITARY ACTION

TO HELP IRAQ. THE IRAQIGOVERNMENT

HAS REQUESTED OUR HELP ANDGIVEN ITS CLEAR CONSENT FOR U.K.

MILITARY ACTION.THE FACT IS, THIS IS ABOUT

PSYCHOPATHIC TERRORISTS THAT ARETRYING TO KILL US.

THERE ISN'T AN OPTION OF JUSTHOPING THIS WILL GO AWAY.

>> Jon: WHAT? NOT A OPTION?

HOPING IT'S GOING TO GO AWAY?

IF I REMEMBER ENGLISHLITERATURE CORRECTLY,

HOPING SOMETHING GOES AWAYHAS BEEN THE NATIONAL STRATEGY

IN YOUR COUNTRY IN DEALING WITHEVERYTHING FROM CONSUMPTION TO

COLONIAL UPRISINGS TOHOMOSEXUALITY.

ALRIGHT.

SO GREAT, ENGLAND'S LAW MAKERSARE DEBATING

AND VOTING ON THISINCREDIBLY IMPORTANT ISSUE.

WAIT, I MEANT TO SAY THAT'SGREAT,

ENGLAND'S LAW MAKERS AREDEBATING AND LAW MAKING ON THE

IMPORTANT ISSUE.

I DIDN'T MEAN TO BRING THESARCASM.

YOU KNOW, WE ARE HAVING ADEBATE TOO.

>> DO YOU THINK OUR CONGRESS,OUR LAW MAKERS SHOULD BE TAKING

IT UP AND DISCUSSING, DEBATINGIT .

>> WHY ISN'T THERE THE DEBATE INCONGRESS?

>> SHOULD CONGRESS COME BACK?

>> WHY ISN'T CONGRESS BACK ANDDEBATING THIS ISSUE?

>> IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE A BITOF REALLY AGGRESSIVE DEBATE.

>> Jon: SEE, IT'S A VERY VIBRANTDEBATE CENTERING AROUND SHOULD

WE OR SHOULD WE NOT-- HAVE A DEBATE.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: SO, WHY AREN'T WE

GETTING ALL PARLIAMENTARY ANDTALKING ABOUT THIS?

>> I THINK THE PRESIDENT SHOULDCOME TO CONGRESS AND ASK FOR

AUTHORIZATION.

>> ABSOLUTELY I'M WILLING TO GOBACK.

>> I THINK THE PRESIDENT HAS ANOBLIGATION TO CALL US BACK

TOMORROW TO START THIS DEBATE.

>> IF THE PRESIDENT HAD ASKEDUS TO STAY LIKE DAVID CAMERON

ASKED PARLIAMENT TO COME BACKWE WOULD HAVE.

>> Jon: HE DIDN'T ASK. I WOULDOF COME BACK, BUT HE DIDN'T ASK.

IF WE HAD JUST COME BACK THATWOULD HAVE BEEN RUDE.

[LAUGHING]HE DIDN'T ASK.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] IT MAKES SENSE.

THE WHOLE THING MAKES SENSE.

IT'S NOT LIKE CONGRESS CAN JUSTCALL ITSELF BACK INTO SESSION.

>> HARRY REID AND JOHN BOEHNERBOTH CAN CALL THEIR

RESPECTIVE CHAMBERSBACK TO CONGRESS.

>> Jon: YOU'VE ALWAYS HAD THEPOWER TO CALL BACK TO CONGRESS.

COME OUT, COME OUT WHEREVER YOUARE.

♪ LET IT GO. LET IT GO.DON'T HOLD IT BACK ANYMORE. ♪

[LAUGHING]

I SHOULD OF KNOWNSINGING "LET IT GO" WOULD MAKE

ME GO FLACID.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: SERIOUSLY, I'VE SEEN

THAT MOVIE LIKE A [BEEP]THOUSAND TIMES.

I REALLY FEEL LIKE AT THIS POINTI CAN BUILD A [BEEP] SNOW MAN.

ALRIGHT.

SO CONGRESS, CONGRESS COULD RUSHBACK TO WASHINGTON AND DEBATE

THIS RIGHT NOW.

NOW I KNOW WHY HARRY REIDDOESN'T WANT TO.

HE THINKS OBAMA ALREADY HAS THEAUTHORITY TO DO WHATEVER THE

HELL HE WANTS.

BUT HOUSE SPEAKER BOEHNER, YOUBELIEVE THE PRESIDENT IS

GOING ABOUT THIS ALL WRONG.

>> IF THE GOAL IS TO DESTROYISIS AS THE PRESIDENT SAYS IT

IS, I DON'T BELIEVE THE STRATEGYTHAT HE OUTLIED WOULD ACCOMPLISH

THAT.

>> WOULD YOU RECOMMEND PUTTINGAMERICAN BOOTS ON THE GROUND?

>> WE HAVE NO CHOICE.

THESE ARE BARBARIANS. THEYINTEND TO KILL US, AND IF WE

DON'T DESTROY THEM FIRST, WE AREGOING TO PAY THE PRICE.

>> Jon: SO THE PRESIDENT HAS THEWRONG STRATEGY TO DESTROY

THE BARBARIANS WHO WILL KILL USALL. THE BARBARIANS AT OUR GATE,

OR NOT NECESSARILY OUR GATE BUTA FEW GATES AWAY AND THEN

THERE'S OBVIOUSLY THE OCEAN. BUTTHE POINT IS, SO I GET IT,

BOEHNER, LET'S HAVE THE DEBATEAND WE NEED TO DO IT NOW.

>> JOHN BOEHNER SPEAKOF THE HOUSE SAID TODAY

I THINK THE HOUSE AND CONGRESSITSELF SHOULD SPEAK, BUT DOING

THIS WITH A WHOLE GROUP OFMEMBERS WHO ARE ON THEIR WAY

OUT THE DOOR, I DON'T THINK THATIS THE RIGHT WAY TO HANDLE THIS.

[LAUGHING]

>> Jon: YOU JUST SAID THEBARBARIANS WERE TRYING TO KILL

US. SETTING ASIDE THAT THANKS TOINCUMBENCY FAVORING ELECTORIAL

PRACTICES ROUGHLY 90% OFTHE MEMBERS WHO ARE ON THEIR WAY

OUT OF THE DOOR OF THESEMIDTERMS

WILL BE COMING RIGHT BACK INTHROUGH THE DOOR.

AND IF YOUR POINT IS THAT THESEARE RUTHLESS BARBARIANS WHO

THREATEN OUR VERY EXISTENCE ANDMUST BE KILLED IMMEDIATELY BY

THE NEW CONGRESS WHICH TAKESOVER IN JANUARY.

I MEAN, IS THERE SOMEONE WHOCOULD PERHAPS LAY OUT THE

CYNICAL UNDER PINNINGSOF THIS POSITION BY

OUR BRAVE CONGRESS.

>> JACK KINGSTON A REBULICANCONGRESSMAN FROM GEORGIA

HAD A VERY INTERESTING QUOTE INTHE NEW YORK TIMES YESTERDAY.

SO, "A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULDLIKE TO STAY ON THE SIDELINE AND

SAY 'JUST BOMB THE PLACE ANDTELL US ABOUT IT LATER .'

IT'S A ELECTION YEAR. A LOT OFDEMOCRATS DON'T KNOW HOW IT

WOULD PLAY IN THEIR PARTY.REPUBLICANS DON'T WANT TO CHANGE

ANYTHING. WE LIKE THE PATH WE'REON NOW. WE CAN

DENOUNCE IF IT GOES BAD ANDPRAISE IT IF IT GOES WELL

AND ASK THEM WHAT TOOK HIM SOLONG.

>> Jon: HOLY [BEEP].

IN A TIME OF WAR OURCONGRESSIONAL INACTION IS PURE

POLITICAL CALCULATION.

OUR LEGISLATORS REFUSE TODEBATE PUBLICLY ONE OF THE MOST

CRUCIAL ISSUES OF OUR TIME FORFEAR WE WILL HEAR THEM.

BUT FINALLY JACK KINGSTON HASTHE GUTS TO SAY OUT LOUD WHAT

THESE COWARDS ARE UP TO.

I WONDER WHY HE DECIDED TO SAYTHESE THINGS.

>> LAST NIGHT DAVID PERDUEDEFEATED CONGRESSMAN

JACK KINGSTON IN THE REPUBLICANSENATE PRIMARY RUN OFF.

>> Jon: OH, HE SPOKE HONESTLYBECAUSE HE'S LEAVING CONGRESS.

YOU KNOW WHAT, THE REST OF YOU[BEEP] EITHER GET BACK TO

WASHINGTON AND DEBATE AND VOTEON THIS THING

OR ELSE MAYBE IT'S TIME TO TELLMOM WE'RE MOVING HOME.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

THIS PAST WEEK, JUST THIS PASTWEEK, JUST THIS PAST WEEK

GLOBAL LEADERS GATHERED INNEW YORK

FOR THE UNITED NATIONSANNUAL MOTORCADE COMPETITION.

[LAUGHING]BUT APPARENTLY IN BETWEEN

CAUSING TRAFFIC JAMS THEYSOMETIMES MADE SPEECHES.

>> FOR ALL THE IMMEDIATECHALLENGES THAT WE GATHER TO

ADDRESS THIS WEEK. TERRORISM,INSTABILITY, INEQUALITY,

DISEASE, THERE IS ONE ISSUE THATWILL DEFINE THE CONTOURS OF THIS

CENTURY MORE DRAMATICALLY THANANY OTHER.

>> Jon: I'M GOING TO GO WITH --THE TERRIFYING ENTHUSIASM OF ONE

DIRECTION FANS?

[LAUGHING]I HAD TO LOG OFF MY OWN

INSTAGRAM.

THEY'RE VICIOUS.

>> THE URGENT ANDGROWING THREAT OF A CHANGING

CLIMATE.

>> Jon: OH, WELL THAT'S ALSOSCARY.

OKAY.

MAYBE IF WE GET THE ONEDIRECTIONERS UPSET ABOUT CLIMATE

CHANGE. I HEARD --I HEARD HARRY IS

FLOATING OUT TO SEA ON AN ICECAP.

[ APPLAUSE ]NOW THAT WAS PRESIDENT

OBAMA AT LAST WEEK'SU.N. CLIMATE SUMMIT.

ALTHOUGH IN SOME WAYS,THE MOST IMPORTANT

SPEAKERS WERE THE LEADERS OFSEVERAL LOW LYING ISLAND NATIONS

A WHO'S WHO OF WHO'S ALMOSTUNDERWATER.

FROM THE BAHAMAS TO PALAU TOKIRIBATI, ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA

AND OF COURSE SAMOA, WHICH ISNOT JUST THE HOME OF

EVERYONE'S THIRD FAVORITE GIRLSCOUT COOKIE.

>> THIS IS IS A OPPORTUNITY TOENSURE THE U.N. IS FIT FOR

PURPOSE WHEN IT COMES TOSUPPORT FOR SIDS.

>> Jon: SIDS?

SMALL ISLAND DEVELOPING STATES.

TALK ABOUT PEOPLE WHO CAN'TCATCH A BREAK. THEY EVEN HAVE

TO SHARE THEIR ACRONYM WITHSUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME.

THAT'S ALMOST AS BAD AS WHEN ICREATED MY MAIL DELIVERY CHARITY

HELPING ELDERLY RETIREES PLANEVENING SUPPER.

[ APPLAUSE ]AND AFTER, YEAH IT'S NOT -- WOW,

I DIDN'T REALIZE I DID THATWHEN I WAS SO YOUNG.

THAT WAS INTERESTING.

YOU KNOW, YOU GET PICTURES OF MENOW, I WORK HERE.

YOU KNOW AFTER HEARING THOSEMOVING SPEECHES WHO WOULDN'T

STAND UP TO TAKE ACTION AGAINSTCLIMATE CHANGE.

>> THE LEADERS OF CHINA ANDINDIA CHOSE NOT TO ATTEND THE

SUMMIT TODAY.

>> Jon: OH REALLY.

THE LEADERS OF INDIA AND CHINACHOSE NOT TO ATTEND.

AND COINCIDENTALLY THEY'VE ALSOCHOSEN TO BE THE FIRST AND THIRD

BIGGEST PRODUCERS OFCARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS.

SURE THE U.S. IS NUMBER TWO, BUTSTILL!

AT LEAST PRESIDENT OBAMA WASTHERE TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES.

LIKE FOR INSTANCE, EVERYONESAYING THEY NEED TO HAVE A

CARBON TAX.

>> HAN ALSO CALLED FOR PUTTING APRICE ON CARBON.

SOMETHING THE UNITED STATES HASREJECTED.

>> Jon: REJECTED IS SUCH A HARSHWORD.

HOW ABOUT POLITELY DECLINE TOLEGISLATIVELY CONSIDER, BECAUSE

IT MIGHT EFFECT US.

SO DID ANYTHING GET DONE AT THISSUMMIT?

>> SOME OF THE CHALLENGES INREACHING SUCH AN AGREEMENT

WERE ON DISPLAY EVEN TODAY.

BRAZIL, FOR EXAMPLE, SAID ITWOULD NOT SIGN A PLAN TO HALT

DEFORESTATION BY 2030.

>> Jon: YOU CAN'T ASK BRAZIL TOHALT DEFORESTATION.

THAT'S THEIR WHOLE THING.

THE BEST YOU CAN HOPE FOR ISTHAT THEY LEAVE JUST A TINY

STRIP OF RAINFOREST.

[ APPLAUSE ]BUT THE GATHERING --

IT REALLY DOES -- SOUTHAMERICA IS GOING TO LOOK

MUCH BETTER IN A BATHING SUITNOW.

BUT THE GATHERING WASN'T TOTALLYHOPELESS.

ONE UN AGENCY STILL BELIEVESTHAT THE PLANET CAN BE SAVED.

GRANTED IT'S THE AV DEPARTMENT.

>> ONE DAY WE WILL WAKE UP TOFIND THAT THE ENERGY THAT POWERS

THE ALARM CLOCK CAME THROUGH THEBREEZE THROUGH THE TREES.

IT WON'T SCAR THE LAND OR POISONTHE SEAS.

THE QUESTION IS HOW DO WE GET TOTHAT DAY FROM WHERE WE ARE

TODAY?

ALL 7.3 BILLION OF US.

>> Jon: WOW, NICELY DONE. BUTIF YOU WANT TO CAPTURE THE FULL

GRAVITY OF CLIMATE CHANGE, MAYBEYOU SHOULD HAVE CHOSEN A

DIFFERENT MORGAN FREEMANMONOLOGUE.

>> THIS IS IT. IF THE WORLD DOESGO ON,

IT WILL NOT GO ON FOR EVERYONE.

NEW YORK CITY, BOSTON, ATLANTA,PHILADELPHIA, ALL WILL BE

DESTROYED.

SO, THAT'S IT.

GOOD LUCK TO US ALL.

>> Jon: WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK. IHOPE.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> WELCOME BACK. MY GUEST

TONIGHT, HE IS THE PRESIDENT OFTHE SYRIAN NATIONAL COALITION.

PLEASE WELCOME TO THEPROGRAM HADI AL BAHRA.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM.

YOU ARE THE PRESIDENT OF THESYRIAN NATIONAL COALITION.

WHAT, WHAT IS THAT?

AND IS THAT -- BECAUSE IT IS,WE'RE AWFULLY CONFUSED.

AND BY THE WAY, SORRY FORDESTABILIZING THE WHOLE REGION.

BUT WHAT IS THE SYRIAN NATIONALCOALITION?

WHAT IS IT MADE UPOF?

>> THE SYRIAN NATIONAL COALITIONIS SIMPLY PROUD SYRIANS WHO

SEEK THEIR JUSTICE TO REGAINTHEIR RIGHTS, THEIR FREEDOM, AND

TO HAVE THEIR COUNTRY WITHDEMOCRATIC RULERSHIP.

>> Jon: YOUR GOAL IS NOT JUSTTHE DEFEAT OF THIS NEW

TERRORIST GROUP, THISISIL, THIS ISIS.

WHATEVER THEY CALL THEMSELVES.

YOUR GOAL IS ALSO TO GAINJUSTICE FROM ASSAD.

>> IT IS TRUE.>> Jon: YES.

>> ASSAD IS THE SOLE CAUSE OF TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS IN

THE AREA. THIS HAS BEEN SINCETHE 80S SINCE

THE INVASION OF LEBANON BY THESYRIAN ARMY.

SINCE THE PRESENCE OF THEAMERICAN FORCES IN IRAQ.

THE ORIGIN OF ISIS ORGANIZATION,IT WAS THE STATE, THE ISLAMIC

STATE OF IRAQ AND IT WASCARRYING TERRORIST ATTACKS

AGAINST AMERICAN FORCES IN IRAQAT THAT TIME.

AGAIN HE INVESTED AND REBUILTTHIS SAME ORGANIZATION TO

TERRORIZE THE SYRIAN PEOPLE NOWIN ORDER TO BLOCK

THEIR FREE MOVEMENT FOR FREEDOMAND DEMOCRACY.

>> Jon: ASSAD DID THAT. BECAUSEOUR UNDERSTANDING OF ISIS

IS THAT THEY WERE FIGHTINGASSAD. THAT THEY WERE, ALONG

WITH THE AL-NUSRAFRONT AND THE FREE SYRIAN ARMY

WERE ALL FIGHTING TOGETHER, ORNOT NECESSARILY TOGETHER

BUT TO TRY TO DEFEAT ASSAD.

>> OPPOSITE.>> Jon: OPPOSITE.

>> ASSAD NEVER FOUGHT ISIS. ISISNEVER FOUGHT ASSAD.

SINCE THE START OF THE YEAR ANDTHE START OF THE PRESENCE OF

ISIS INSIDE SYRIA. ACTUALLY,ISIS FOUGHT ONLY THE FREE SYRIAN

ARMY. AND ASSAD HAS BOMBED,CARRIED THE AIR STRIKES

AGAINST THE FREE SYRIAN ARMYWHILE LEAVING TOTALLY ISIS

FORCES OUT. GO GOOGLE IT OUT.

SEE HOW MANY AIR RAIDS AGAINSTISIS CARRIED BY ASSAD'S REGIME

SINCE THE START OF THE YEAR.YOU'LL FIND NOTHING.

ALL THE STRIKES ARE AGAINSTCIVILIANS, AGAINST PEOPLE

INSIDE ALEPPO, USINGTNT BOMBS, AND USING EXTREME

VIOLENCE AGAINST HIS OWN PEOPLE.

>> Jon: I'M A LITTLE SAD WEDON'T KNOW THAT HERE AND

THAT WE COULD GOOGLE IT AND THENWE WOULD KNOW IT.

THAT'S A LITTLE SAD.

SO IF, WHY WOULD ASSAD WHO ISESSENTIALLY, THIS IS THE ALAWITE

KINGDOM, AND HE IS SUPPORTED BYIRAN.

WHY WOULD HE UNLEASH A SUNNIFUNDAMENTALIST TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION.

WOULDN'T THEY BE HIS MORTALENEMY?

>> NO. HE WANTED FROM THE STARTOF THE SYRIAN REVOLUTION.

HE HAD A STRTEGY AND PLAN. HEWANTED THE FREE WORLD TO

SEE THAT IT'S ONLY A CHOICEBETWEEN AN EVIL TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION AND AN EVILDICTATORSHIP.

AND HE ASSUMED THE WORLD WOULDCHOOSE THE LESSER OF THE TWO

EVILS, AND THEY WOULD CHOOSEASSAD TO COOPERATE WITH.

LUCKILY THE FREE WORLD REFUSEDTO DO THIS, AND THEY UNDERSTOOD

THE GAME AND THEY STOOD BYTHE SYRIAN PEOPLE.

>> Jon: ARE YOU CONCERNED.

WHAT CHANCE, YOU KNOW, I THINKTHE SYMPATHIES OF THE WORLD

ARE WITH THIS COALITIONOF PEOPLE WHO JUST WANT

FREEDOM, THEY JUST WANT TOBE LEFT ALONE, THEY JUST WANT TO

LIVE THEIR LIVES.

HOW DO YOU COMBAT, ASSAD ISBACKED BY IRAN.

AND IN SOME WAYS BACKED BYRUSSIA.

ISIS, ISIL IS BACKEDBY MAYBE ASSAD.

MAYBE THEY'RE GETTING MONEYFROM SOME OF THE OTHER

MORE FUNDAMENTALISTREGIMES IN THE AREA.

HOW IS A GROUP LIKE THIS GOINGTO DEFEAT THEM AND CREATE

SOMETHING STABLE?

>> MAINLY BY OUR WILL AND OURPATIENCE.

THIS IS THE FUTURE OF OURKIDS, OF OUR GRAND DAUGHTERS

AND SONS.

WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THEM SINCE40 YEARS.

AND THE WORLD HAS KEPT SILENT.NOBODY MOVED. THEY MOVED ONLY

AGAINST ISIS WHILE THEY DIDN'TMOVE AND DO ANYTHING FOR ASSAD.

BUT WE THE PEOPLE OF SYRIAWILL CARRY ON OUR FIGHT AND WILL

FIGHT UNTIL WE WIN BACK OURFREEDOM AND WILL ACHIEVE OUR

QUEST INTO A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY.

[ APPLAUSE ]>> Jon: HOW WOULD YOU -- AND I

WISH YOU VERY WELL WITH THAT.

WHAT DO YOU SAY, SO NOW ACOLLISION HAS FORMED THAT THEY

ARE GOING TO DO STRATEGIC AIRSTRIKES THAT THEY BELIEVE

WILL WEAKEN ISIS. WILL THEYWEAKEN THEM TO THE EXTENT

THAT -- IS THIS SOME SORT OFROUND ROBIN?

DOES THE FREE SYRIANSHAVE TO FIGHT AND

DEFEAT ISIS AND THEN TAKE ONASSAD?

BECAUSE IT SEEMS THAT THECOALITION IS UNWILLING

TO UTILIZE THEIR POWERAGAINST ASSAD.

>> WELL IT'S UH, OUR AMERICANFRIENDS, THEY HAVE TO KNOW WE

HAVE BEEN FIGHTING ISIS SINCETHE FIRST QUARTER OF THE YEAR.

WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING TWOFRONTS.

WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING ISIS ANDTHE REGIME, ASSAD REGIME AT THE

SAME TIME WITH VERY LITTLEHELP OF THE WORLD.

WE CAN NOT CARRY ON THE FIGHT OFTWO FRONTS AT THE SAME TIME

WITHOUT THE ASSISTANCE OF OURFRIENDS IN THE U.S. AND

OTHER FREE WORLD.

>> Jon: YOU ARE HERE FOR THEU.N. MISSION. ARE YOU GETTING

THE HELP THAT YOU THINK YOU NEEDAND THAT YOUR PEOPLE DESERVE?

>> I THINK THAT THE WORLD HASSTARTED TO MOVE IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION. IT'S NOT TO OUREXPECTATION AS OF YET.

BUT I THINK SLOWLY IT WILL BUILDUP TOWARDS THAT DIRECTION.

THEY NEED TO NOTICETHAT THEY CANNOT ELIMINATE

TERRORISM BY ONLY MILITARYOPERATIONS.

IT HAS TO BE MUCH, MUCH MORETHAN MILITARY OPERATIONS.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SOCIAL,POLITICAL PROGRAM.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> YOU NEED TO PROVIDE A VISIONFOR POLITICAL LIFE FOR ALL

OF THE REGION IN THE MIDDLEEAST.

>> Jon: I THINK THAT'S THEFASCINATING PART.

SO LET'S, CAN YOU STICK AROUNDFOR A LITTLE BIT?

>> SURE.

>> Jon: WE WILL COME BACK ANDTHEN I WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT

COULD WORK THERE BECAUSE IT'SSOMETHING THAT I THINK AMERICA

THOUGHT THEY TRIED IN IRAQ, WERENOT SUCCESSFUL WITH IT.

THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE TRYING INAFGHANISTAN, WERE NOT SUCCESSFUL

WITH.

SO WHAT A WORLD LIKE THAT WOULDLOOK LIKE, I THINK THAT WOULD BE

IMPORTANT TO FIND OUT, TODELINEATE.

ALRIGHT, SO WE WILL BE RIGHTBACK. HADI AL-BAHRA.

WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK.

[ APPLAUSE ]>> THAT'S OUR SHOW.

HERE IT IS, YOUR MOMENT OF ZEN.

>> WELL, I WON'T BE TALKINGTO THE ROSE EXPERT ANYMORE.

>> I KNOW.

BUT YOU CAN ASK ME ANYTHINGABOUT PANTIES.

>> I LOVE PANTIES.

>> OH, FLOWERS.

>> PEONIES.>> YES, PEONIES.

>> YES, YES, YES.
