4:00 am
this is al jazeera i'm debbie navigator with a check on your world headlines the u.s. president appears to be forging ahead with his plan to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital despite global condemnation of the move donald trump has called
4:01 am
the leaders of palestine israel jordan egypt and saudi arabia to inform them of his intention to shift the u.s. embassy in israel from tel aviv to jerusalem. reports from washington. the white house there was a sense of the international it's been caused by donald trump's forthcoming speech announcing the u.s. is recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital but a six month delay on moving the u.s. embassy from tel aviv this is a campaign promise to keep from financial donors like las vegas casino magnate sheldon adelson and his right wing evangelical base the president needs now move him as his popularity ratings plummet. throughout the day the president briefed the presidents of the palestinian authority and egypt and the kings of jordan and saudi arabia it was reported that or counseled him against his decision which led to this
4:02 am
question at the state department briefing i'm wondering if you can say that the that he's gotten the support of anyone for any decision that he might make so again i'm not going to characterize those conversations and some of those calls i can tell you that the conversations both in person and over the phone at least on the secretary's part have been a frank exchange of ideas that's it i'm going to leave it at that the president will speak when he spotted two minutes later the white house press secretary was similarly callie about the decision i'm not going to get ahead of the president's remarks that he'll make tomorrow to say other than israel which thanks to this move is twenty two years overdue that all of the feedback he's been getting from world leaders is overwhelmingly negative. no again he spoke with five leaders that's hardly indicative of everybody across the globe mr president the fifth leader the president called was the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu israeli politicians have welcomed decision on jerusalem the israeli mayor of the city said
4:03 am
the embassy move could take two minutes simply by switching the sign on the current u.s. consulate in west jerusalem that the u.s. has chosen not to do so may be significant but with reports over the weekend that the president's middle east envoy is pushing a saudi backed plan that gives israel formal control of all of jerusalem wednesday's announcement appears to be in keeping with the direction of the trumpet ministrations emerging middle east policy she had al-jazeera washington. well the saudi king says the move will inflame the feelings of muslims while the palestinian president mahmoud abbas is warning of dangerous consequences. and. this is a good. maybe

4:06 am
with i pity a country that would come up against just. the synergy with air land and sea forces and in our ability to control the battle space and seize the high ground is devastating all countries respect the power of the united states in the respect how dominant we are in this region and we get better and better better and . tonight a ten
4:07 am
a reg limps of china's on vicious expansion in one of the world's most contested regions we report from the south china sea where the chinese are warning off anyone who comes too close to that building program we continue our look this morning and what china does not want you to see the united states says the superpower is reclaiming land in the south china sea the fact that we're dealing with a situation right now where we the u.s. has to be much more aggressive in dealing with the chinese government c.n.n. has learned the u.s. navy is about to send a destroyer there let's go to our c.n.n. c.n.n. got exclusive access to classified u.s. surveillance flights over the islands. the threat to china is becoming big news the media is beating the drums of war at the world is being primed to regard china as a new enemy china's alarming creation of entirely new territory in the south china sea is one part of a broader military push that some fear is to challenge us dominance in the region.
4:08 am
china is building in strips in the south china sea on disputed islands condemned by an international tribunals this is now a flashpoint for war between china and america. what is not news is that china itself is under threat. these american bases form a joint news in circling china with missiles bombers warships all the way from a straight through the pacific to asia and beyond. i mean if you were in beijing looking out stood on the tallest building in beijing and looked out of the pacific ocean you'd see american warships you'd see guam is about to sink because there's so many missiles pointed at china you look up the korean see american armaments pointing at china you'd see japan which is basically. japan's
4:09 am
a glove over the american fist i think if i was chinese i'd have a little to worry about about american aggressiveness and we have china surrounded and we're doing more all the time to try and keep it surrounded and deepen that containment of china. but china presents a fascinating case of a country that is independent doesn't have foreign bases on its territory. growing very rapidly not as rapidly now as it did for thirty years but still the second ranking economy in the world we have an adversary and that adversary is china and that adversary unless there is dramatic reform inside china will be our enemy someday when miss. i think really the needs to be dispelled somehow china's aiming to replace america and going to run the world. well first of all the
4:10 am
chinese are not that stupid the west with this christian. roots are about converting other people into their beliefs the chinese are not about that it's just the again i'm not degrading the western culture i'm just pointing out the inherent nature of the d.n.a. is of two different cultures the chinese two thousand years ago built the great wall to keep the barbarians out and nothing made them. as the world's economic power moves rapidly to asia the response of the united states is to deploy the majority of its naval forces to asia and the pacific this massive military buildup is known in washington as the pivot to asia the target is china. the great power game in the twenty first
4:11 am
century it's called the petrol war. for america's unchallenged dom's industry the annual prize is huge profits from almost six hundred billion dollars of military spending. once an imaginary weapon on star wars the electromagnetic gun that is now a reality you said you're thinking about these next generation and futuristic ideas and we've got scientists who have designed these and it's coming to life. and the smartest weapons made enemies as a pacific nation and the united states will play a larger and long term role in shaping this region and its future i have directed my national security team to make our presence and mission in the asia pacific a top priority in one sentence. is the u.s. already at war with china yes on the ground and in the air the winner of the nobel

4:19 am
much good information as we can and so i wouldn't accept the characterization that that there have been lies and cover ups the word guinea pigs comes up a lot from the survivals i would i would refer you to our embassy website on that i've read it and that question was looked at during the clinton administration and that was not the conclusion they came to. the secret of the marshall islands this project four point one declassified documents reveal a scientific program began a study of mice and became a study of human beings exposed to radiation. chicago is where it all began i'm for the agency are gone lab in chicago last week named seven men natives of the marshall island leben is from here in the rational radiated by our march nineteenth four hydrogen bomb that. john is mayor of which is one hundred

4:23 am
from california almost five miles away the usa for stances intercontinental missiles by firing them at the marshall. imagine a missile coming screaming out of the sky it's absolutely terrifying there i think that there's there's really nothing. that i can imagine that that would be more terrifying than this and we're talking about. devices that any one of them could go off course. none of this disturbs life on the base where small town america has been recreated a wonderland of the suburban good. fabulous but there's nothing better than living on a tropical island i'm very much of each property you know it's ok i live here.
4:24 am
just across the bay busybody island known as the slum of the pacific more than twelve thousand people live here on the strip of land less than a mile long. many of them refugees from what is now a missile base and from islands poisoned by nuclear testing. every day people from me by abroad to work on the missile base to water the gardens and the golf course. then they all ferry back so they puff and. this is a pall tide in the pacific. you

highest rate of diabetes in the world. when someone gets really you. do they go to the hospital live from the base because . they've got a pretty modern clinic or. they don't treat them with whom it is in. there for taking the blood and then. what happens when somebody is seriously thinking and to hear maybe. the most consistent example given is the example of the ronald reagan missile site and e.p.i. next to it. on the ronald reagan missile site is a vivid example of the united states golf courses and. swimming pools and all kinds
4:27 am
of amenities. right next to it is what was called the slum of the pacific and said it's a challenge. is in great need right now we talked about infrastructure one of the projects the u.s. is working with our australian colleagues and with the asian development bank is a sewer and water project desperately needed for me by he buys overcrowded schools need repair actually the u.s. military did a survey back in the seventy's and found that the sewers didn't work and the water didn't run and they like tricity wasn't there it only happened nor all that long ago they found almost exactly the same thing why why hasn't that been fix we've there's complete agreement that by should be a priority and not only because of the current activities of the ronald reagan space and missile defense side but there's also now an additional component that is providing for global security and that's the space fence project by the air force.
4:28 am
every missile fired on the marshall islands by the us military cost one hundred million dollars each. this school bus is the only one only by they can't afford to replace. the bees for us the people on marshall islands we have no need for. it's being used to test missiles the foreign countries like china. and anywhere else if they want. what would you like to see happen. i want our land back.

4:38 am
tiananmen square peaking in one thousand nine hundred. great cities like shanghai what taken over and declared concessions and foreigners lived a life of privilege and luxury amidst terrible poverty imposed on the chinese. resistance known as the boxer rebellion was put down with the savagery. this rape of china set the tone for how china was perceived in the west well into the twentieth century. this is the distinguished historian we should know theodore h. white and the five to the white house of it speaking in the one nine hundred sixty s. perhaps china is too vast to be governed by mercy yet of chinese mind craves order

4:40 am
a winner in this contest from the early one nine hundred thirty s. on but we know very little about it and people don't understand that even today. shanghai hears the message clearly as foreign businessmen bought up their shops go now quickly communism much or take what you can but. elemental haste the western powers evacuate the city they have built for good and bad alike mostly the businessmen come for profit as well as missionaries come to here must say good bye south b.n.c. steams the last of western influence farewell to a century. people and today it's difficult to understand the paranoia ignited by mouse revolution.
4:41 am
as we look at china on the map we can see that china is the basic cause of all of our troubles in asia i believe that the fate or. if you method. to be prepared for the puppy beneath. a shiny new at their own the united. one of the myths about mao is that he was an implacable enemy of the capitalist west. shanghai today is a prosperous international city still run by the communists at least night.
4:42 am
when i was last in china more than a generation ago the loudest noise was the tinkling of bicycle bells now just the streets were dark the universities were closed the chaos of the cultural revolution had given way to a great silence where exhausted was the freest comment i heard coming back the change was barely comprehensible. here in shanghai the freedom bears no comparison yes there are issues with human rights especially the right to speak against the state and challenge its power since i was last here millions of people of been lifted out of poverty many of them into an entirely new middle class this epic is still barely understood in the west or should there be wilfully misunderstood the truth is that china has matched america crn great
4:43 am
game of capitalism and that is one forgivable. one measure of china's new capitalism is the run rich list this league table of china's mega rich is published by rupert hogan warthe an old attorney and his chinese name as her run he's received many awards including china's man of the year this year two thousand and fifteen it's probably been the most extraordinary year of wealth creation in the history of china again you know i've been doing this little fifteen sixteen years i've never seen a year like two thousand and fifteen you know normally for two hundred million pounds or three hundred million dollars we find say by eight hundred thousand people this year two thousand and fifteen is it's doubled they'll be more dollar
4:44 am
billionaires know about in china than in the u.s. so the u.s. up until now has been the leader in terms of business. you know the most successful business tycoons in the world. china two thousand and fifteen with their take in the usa amazing. modern china is full of telling irony is not released this museum that was once the house where mounties comrades secretly found of the communist party of china in one nine hundred twenty one. today it stands in the heart of an exclusive fairy capitalist shopping district.
4:45 am
when you leave the shrine to china's great revolution you are confronted by a surreal spectacle for right outside where the chinese communist party was blown all the very symbols of capitalism stocks apple. all shake up. and down there perhaps the free market is greatest triumph bottled water but in shoals you live young costing six pounds for a small bottle in my hotel. now spin a nice tune if he was here i'm not so sure hidden history is always a key to the truth five years before his great communist revolution in one hundred forty nine mts sent this secret message to washington and china must industrialize right now this can only be done by free enterprise chinese and american interests fit together economically and politically america need not fear that we will not be
4:46 am
cooperative we cannot risk crossing america we cannot risk any conflict. received no reply. nothing has changed. mouse a tongue was looking to be a friend with the united states from the beginning miles says i will go meet franklin roosevelt in the white house reaches out nine hundred fifty to harry truman he reaches out to dwight eisenhower his hand was tossed away. this all. but unity that might of changed history prevented wars save countless lives was lost because the truth of miles over true was was denied in the washington of the one nine hundred fifty s. . state department officials who had carried mao's messages were condemned down justly as communist traitors. everybody who knew
4:47 am
who spoke cheney's was gone in the one nine hundred fifty s. the state department had no employees who spoke cheney it's resulted in us not having relations with the number one most populous country in the world in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine this man. paying became china's paramount leader he said socialism does not mean shared poverty. this was code for the most radical reform since miles revolution. the return of capitalism to china but this time controlled by the communist party. to be rich is glorious day and was reported as saying. america was now threatened
4:48 am
by the emergence of a vast image of itself. this is one of the many very exclusive gated communities in shanghai where an apartment is one of the prices of the new communism. i had a range to see professor zion way way a close aide to the late things paying the man who changed china. they're in. really extremely. long term visionary a leader will exceed the long turn strategic vision for his country for his people that chinese do you follow that path you know they're true this is really a tradition from china's along history you look at even like mao he said we should
4:49 am
you know surprise u.k. . which was supplied by which so they could didn't used to this day. actually or many chinese have problem with the western media is this theory about china if you. contend with fear it hypes you missed so many things you know if the b.b.c. broadcast something they are happy to always mention this comment is to dictatorship this autocracy well actually with this cut the label you know you cannot understand this china as it is but if you watch b.b.c. c.n.n. or read economist and try to understand china it will be a failure it's impossible. multiple parties fight for political power and everyone about in on them is the only path to salvation for the long suffering that's. a
4:50 am
shanghai entrepreneur educated in america and typical of a new confident outspoken political class in china there are a lot of problems but at the moment the chinese the party state has proven an extraordinary ability to change me i make the joke. in america you can change political parties but you can't change policies. in china you cannot change the party but you can change policies. so in a sixty five or sixty six years china is being run by one single party yet. the political changes that have taken place in china in the past sixty six years have been wider and broader and greater than probably any other major country in modern memory so in that time china seems to be communist patrol so well china is
4:51 am
a market economy and survivor a market economy but it is not a capitalist country here's why there is no way a group of billionaires could control the politburo. the owners control american policymaking so in china you have a vibrant market economy but capital does not rise above political authority capital is not does not have in trying rights in america capital the interest of capital and capital itself has risen above the name of the american nation the political authority cannot check the power of capital and that's why america is a catalyst country but china is not this is the ironic title of a bestselling book by zhang leisure a journalist and critic who lives in beijing. many americans imagine that the
4:52 am
chinese people live miserable repressed her life these no freedom western ever that's not quite sure if you toss speak to many ordinary chinese people they will tell you that they feel that their life i quite free some five hundred million people being lifted off the poverty in some would say probably six hundred million people that's a great achievement. for many americans the yellow peril has never left and i think of the there's the fear about china of course is the fear for china's rapid rise but is also has a lot to do. with china's. the label as a communist and state china subject of some modest compare worth their weight they're not trying to run the world they're not even
4:53 am
trying to run asia pacific i think they want to keep america from dominating the asia pacific so they have what they believe is their rightful place in asia pacific because of our civilisation long history and their size so their objectives are really modest compared with their capacity. the the world for new wealth in china and often so this is this is the product of so entrepreneur school but is it not also the product of the exploitation of people at the bottom what are known in china as migrants but they're not really migrants so. if you really. go to port to this my women workers you will find quite surprisingly. over the past five to seventy years they have experienced. greater increase there
4:54 am
in the social groups china not a car society. but china is a class society. these are the homes of migrant workers people who build and service the new trial. here it's not uncommon for three families to share one tiny flyer. you know you would so see it it's a socialist country it was a call it was equality but i'm fortunately things the reform has started to china has become one of the most unequal societies in the word the income gap is widening governments i feel have retreated some of the responsibilities left the markets to
4:55 am
take over by the market does not always treat women kindly. private companies they would just refuse to high and challenged bearing age women and sometimes when women become pregnant they were thanking them because they don't want to pay their matelote leave and in fact to the income gap has grown much bigger between men and women. your old boss. presided over the bloodshed and tear them square what would you say to the survivors of tiananmen square because so many of those did fight for what they saw as democratic change in china. in one thousand eight hundred nine there were two political forces one was those reprise anybody chinese students their hero was it me how you go but trough who happen to be. their slogan was the
4:56 am
soviet union's today china's tomorrow so the idea was political reform first other reforms second otherwise charnel be hopeless and those mess you would opposite he saw the ied it he saw you know china must have economic reform first as a reform second this priority must be set clear. is the front line of a beckoning war with china we can't continue to allow china to rape our country and that's what they're doing there never have been two countries more into dependent on each other than china and us in history there's like a total disconnect with the changing world you have a giant rising power in this case china. why would you expect the giant rising
4:57 am
