korean soil to protect against the threat from north korea but china had concerns over its strong radars posing potential security risks it says against china but in october the two countries agreed to move past this dispute and it's hoped that this meeting between the presidents will allow the two countries to focus more on other issues including the threat from north korea both countries have a border with north korea and want to prevent war on the korean peninsula at all costs particularly when the united states at times has reminded north korea that the military option remains on the table u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson said that china is putting preparations in place for the potential influx of refugees from north korea so when president moon meets president xi jinping in beijing there will be a hope for discussions on how to promote peace and stability in the region it's a prestige battle for indian prime minister. voters at his home state of good drugs

one thing is that its new president raul gandhi seen as setting up a campaign that's resonated with much of the disenfranchised public and in addition to that he's managed to cobble together an alliance of representatives from the tribal groups from the lower caste population from low level traders rural representatives and i other groups that were seen as being unhappy with the current economics and developments of this state a loss for and around ramadi would be a personal insult to him he was chief minister for thirteen years in the state and touted the good drought state the economic model as a key are at the heart of his campaign to become prime minister here. the u.k. prime minister treason may have suffered a major blow to her plans after m.p.'s now only voted in favor of an amendment that she strongly opposed it in parliament gets
a vote on the final breaks it deals. and un special envoy for syria's staff and in the store or has urged russia to convince the syrian government that there is no time to lose on reaching a peace deal speaking to a swiss television channel steffan de mistura said failure to make peace quickly could lead to a fragmentation of syria those are the headlines of the more news in thirty minutes to stay with us on our to sarah. these american bases form a giant moose in circling china with missiles bombers warships. if you were in beijing looking out he stood on the tallest building in beijing and looked out of the pacific ocean you'd see american warships you'd see quantum is
about to sink because there are so many missiles pointed at china you look up a korean see american armaments pointing at china a chinese two thousand years ago build the great wall to keep the barbarians out and nothing they'd be a muchness film is to break a silence the united states and china may well be on a path toward a nuclear war is no longer unthinkable. showing hard today use a prosperous international city still wrong by the communists at least in. yes there are issues with human rights especially the right to speak against the
state and challenge its power i had a range to see professor zion way way a close aide to the late things are paying the man who changed china your old boss funk 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 force one was those reprise any by the chinese students their hero was it me how you go but if who happen to be eighty one there slogan was silly unions today china's to more than so the idea was a political reform first other reform second otherwise channel be hopeless and
those messy which opposite he saw. it he saw you know china must have economic reform first as a reform second this priority must be set clear. unfortunately at that particular moment in ninety nine the two political forces could not reach a compromise so definitely a tragedy occurred. it was more than a tragedy it was a massacre. of which the memory remains a raw presence in modern china. why does the chinese state still fear the few. the few who speak out and i'm thinking of. that place i mean the man won the nobel peace prize. and he's in prison he's a violent the child is
a low. margin so. pretty free of expression similar views by many people but he really couldn't to dijkstra. challenge the government to implement democratic reforms and a spent a total of thirteen years in prison. why can't a confident china except a criticism like. peace committing makes huge mistake the oh the chinese an explanation if you cross a line course you're violent constitution uveitis so many laws you should be punished. were. and yet in china today the spirit of protest time dissent lives on in different forms. in two thousand and fifteen strikes and community
protests and activism reach record levels this resistance is seldom reported in the west. so there are also protests in china. typically for example land being grabbed by officials to for commercial development and the farmers are not being compensated to properly and the farmers now are no more wary of the rights of their protest all young workers from the factory they demand a better wage of better working conditions but in many of the protests they're economic driven not political driven they are not national light so this kind of things or unlikely into a real movement or so-called you call that revolution. so the most revolution was the last regulation. and what i meant was there never.
the japanese island of okinawa is occupied by thirty two military installations from here the united states is attacked korea vietnam cambodia afghanistan iraq. the scar is full of planes and helicopters. wherever people go they are fenced in and told to keep out. is the frontline of a beckoning war with china. and
chance on a needle to have to make in one of. the some of the many well let's just. if you did not know us we got to do is just to get money enough some of the it's an issue with that. i am. always a survivor. a quarter of the civilians on the island were killed in the american invasion in one thousand nine hundred forty five and a fear of war has been passed through the generations. and. today those who witness these horrors live in the place something extraordinary beauty surrounded by coring fs and a unique marine life. it
was here in her know kobe that the survivors of world war two soldiers refuse and it's this the now fighting to say. it's an epic struggle the pits the zeile and people against the greatest military power on earth. this is the office of a former governor of all. otoh my second day what he has done is create some awesome museum bought and appeal to the outside world to understand the resistance and to understand the suffering. to read its hidden history it begins in nineteen forty five when the americans invaded here's general macarthur arriving in okinawa. been
a second invasion happened ten years later in what became known as the bulldozers the beignets campaign american forces seize prime agricultural land burn farmhouse blues and kill livestock the dispossessed people of all her nawa march the length of japan appealing for help this fall is devoted to a resistance in okinawa that never ceases everywhere people go on the island they're confronted by this sign it tells them they must not go ponce this fence tall with bob while these fences run like great ribbons across the island and the bases them souls cups ways across all canal but all around the people with this continuing demonstration this continuing resistance. and i have
a message it's people of the world watch for japan on the us during. force the bases around. the. same. picked up all. i mean i came one only i mean again we call can only call a student and us or any ties to have their temple i mean if anyone only to get it you want today you just. want to do on the whole old school. thinking i said and i think to understand it it could do you mean you are very nice there's only one of any jew bonuses you know economists that's going up so well so you'll. know this isn't. going to do when you want to must.
now so that the good looking it is the. people to whom you are in. all this will be lost when much of the brain becomes concrete runways for bombers at camp schwalbe the huge u.s. marine base behind this fence. in two thousand and fourteen. elected a new governor to kishi or naca who won by a landslide on one issue stopping the new base at home no. this was election night outside the american base at camp shaw. i still mean there's a. little i do i do yes that was. was was. your somebody.
the government in tokyo resented this unprecedented challenge to its authority. the issue is now in the japanese courts. japan's prime minister shinzo abbey has also made clear that with the backing of his powerful patron america he wants to reawaken japanese nationalism and reclaim its military power. while we were filming this ceremony outside the base on a day when people paid respect to that apartheid loved ones giant american helicopters circled above as intimidating as always by.
the threat of these low flying aircraft is a constant presence in okinawa teachers often come to each because of the noise and the fear. this was the carnage when an american fighter crashed into a primary school off to the pilot had a check to safety. kira had seven was terribly bund. so did they i know. this so that they could. my starts
having a not so no cut. is gonna go do it again that's in the middle of the don't think it'll need a coke and i got that this isn't the thirty. day and i still gotta get a. job in a new day or do you. like to visit if. you get there do you understand. oh i think stimulated. but. i mean eggs and you. and me a good day do do it they just. could i do it's. ok or suffered throughout his youth and died from his injuries aged twenty one.
thank you. another tragedy waits to happen on all kanawa u.s. military aircraft have been involved in forty four accidents on the island. the latest threat is this hybrid plane the osprey notorious for its safety issues. wherever the military is based in asia there is a relationship with local people especially women that often breeds resentment. in okinawa this resentment ignited
a riot in one nine hundred seventy scores of american g.i.'s pulled from a cause which was said to lie. for washington and its compliant ally and tokyo it's this kind of insurrection but they fear. during the making of this film a young woman was raped and murdered allegedly by an american military contract from one of the bases. it was the latest of these of cases of violence and it brought massive crowds into the streets demanding an end to the military occupation of their country.
this is some nice misao designed to carry a nuclear warhead during the cold war the united states secretly installed nuclear weapons that they still won't spy had in all. most of them aimed at china. today the nuclear missile site is run by a buddhist organization the so-called. as a peace be seen. in one to sixty two the. atomic weapon us out or on the missile almost launched. their almost alone according to the spokesman of this military base said they were all about to prepare them. second order to stop it.
one of the american servicemen whose job was to fire them a smith. has since revealed that china was a nuclear target during the cuban missile crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty two. we were told that we would had the horse all of us but we only had one vessel headed over to russia and we did not see why we evolved countries cat and suggested that everybody the doors open so take less time to last a vessel if the doors were cracked open. one of the launch cruise was on the point of firing them missing when a duty officer suspected the order was false and also shot at bayside and two men over there forty five and issued a try the loss. until situation was off and it would only
take like fifteen seconds to run a distance between the two of command centers so those two big get that whole crew it they. while we made a decision as what to do. and it was a very long maybe two or three seconds later were very nervous major came over the intercom. is doing the. stand down order. then we just so. we could of starman a whole plan. the major who had given the moon was quietly cold. and dismissed from the air force. that morning is this is familiar to me it is clear as yesterday morning is this is fifty three years later and have clear blue of the sky was and it was just some very light
clouds and there was a perfect breeze boy perfect temperature i did not know what the temperature was but it's just felt perfect and we were all just taking in then the smell of the air the sea and land ventured together everything smells so beautiful. this is very interesting because it sure is the city's in china part where these mice massage that us which which ones do we have here this all can align and. saw within two thousand trauma turns. you find taking while basine. jew k. in hong kong shanghai thai ads to taiwan taipei and upcoming north korea. we've been dar range missile.
the world's largest humanitarian crisis millions caught up in the civil war alters the real world examines the roots of the conflict in yemen and the complex history that threw a country into perpetual term. separation like the north and the so these dualisms are off part of history. yemen the north south divide this time the nature of music as it breaks the last time senegal qualified for the world cup was in two thousand to fifteen years on and hope to do even better in russia next year with detailed coverage tried to imagine that only seven years ago people were living right here. now that he has taken over their land from around the world donald trump is promising

a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a police training camp in the somali capital mogadishu the suspect was dressed in a police uniform when he entered the camp and detonated the bomb somali officials say the death toll may rise muslim leaders have rejected u.s. president donald trump's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital and called on countries around the world to do the same the fifty seven member organization of islamic cooperation denounced the action as dangerous and a violation of international law. in washington the state department responded to the oh i see declaration by insisting that it will continue to work as a mediator in the israeli palestinian conflict as you all well know the president is committed to this peace process as committed as he has ever been and that has not changed that type of rhetoric that we heard has prevented peace in the past and it's not necessarily surprising to us that those types of things would be said we
remain hard at work in putting together our plan we believe that that will benefit both the israeli and the palestinian people south korea's president is in beijing to hold talks with his chinese counterpart xi jinping moon will be hoping to repair relations after the u.s. deployment of the third anti missile defense system and get china the threat from north korea will also be high on the agenda as will trade. the u.k. prime minister treason may have suffered a major blow to her plans after m.p.'s now only voted in favor of an amendment she had strongly opposed it ensures that parliament gets to vote on the final breaks it deal. it's a prestige battle for india's prime minister the rev dr modi as voters in his home state of gujarat cast ballots in the second phase of regional polling that the election there is taking place in a state where modi's party the b j p has been in power for twenty two years but the opposition congress and its leader raul dandy has mounted a surprisingly strong challenge. u.s.

other hand. this is the center of an empire but lever speaks its name whose power is represented in this extraordinary world map of american military bases. four thousand bases in the united states almost a thousand bases spread across every comment. the archipelago of empire the bases that we have around the world hidden in plain sight are the real territory of our empire but at the same time we maintain independent governments in japan or south korea or germany. they don't have
autonomy when it comes to foreign policy so it's a very sophisticated and effective system. where whereby we pat ourselves on the back for helping to midwife democracy in japan and germany and south korea and various other places while keeping the lid on in that we don't know what these countries would do if they were fully independent and the beauty of this system is that most people pay no attention to it at all they think it's just a natural occurrence to have fifty thousand american troops and japan and there's no country that has better and i'm sure he'll credit credit then the united states and we are not trying to recreate the glories of. the british empire we're arguing that the world is round we have a global policy and. all nations have global rights
no ocean has ever been dominated the way the u.s. dominates the pacific navy air force. they claim in the pearl harbor headquarters of the pacific command they claim to be responsible for fifty two percent of the earth surface and when you look at their logo it shows an eagle over the aleutian islands with one tail on coming down somewhere near seattle on the other coming down right over beijing so beijing looks at a network of bases a real archipelago of empire that's been built up since the korean war you have had and still have an aco of of bases that start in a straight go through your house if we have no bases in australia you have you have . and you have a new facility in western australia no to speak precisely we have no military bases
in australia what we do is operate with and in australian bases but we're not in the basing business nowadays there's a growing collection of what are referred to as lily pad bases these are bases that have typically three hundred troops no family members very few amenities and they're often quite secretive their bases that are frequently constructed within a foreign country's base to disguise it and generally are not referred to as bases . many of these bases have been set up to combat china's well wide economic influence. from these bases the united states operates a secret ami you know hundred forty seven countries. if you're going to be
a free country rather than a given every gangster regime in the world is going to have to take a risk because the gangsters they want to they want to eliminate good people in the world so they can. have in china they want to dominate all of the all of the far east they want to dominate just like japan wanted to before world war two their goal was to dominate that part of the world today the because there's been no political reform in beijing these guys want to dominate a huge chunk of the planet while it's andrew campaign of it has served on america's national defense final so he's a military strategist and will plan a you've written that strikes a naval blockade have a role to play in punishing china. you've described the need for sea mines you've described the need for special forces u.s. special forces and missile. placed in islands. this sounds like
a preparation for war. our first president george washington said if you want peace prepare for war and essentially what the united states is doing it in is responding to provoke kind of behavior on the part of china and just as we did in the cold war the idea was to have a position of military strength such that your adversaries were not tempted to act in an aggressive ways or try to employ coercion to get their way and he just last week the u.s. navy sent a guided missile destroyer. in the spratly islands and south china sea and what was different about this i think was the chinese fighter scramble. that sounds like an escalator well the again from an american perspective the escalation was the chinese beginning to militarize these islands in the first place moving its
military capabilities doubt into that region gauging in provocative behavior against the commercial activities said military forces of other minor countries in the region that have claim to those islands so it's a response to chinese intimidation rather excuse me how is comus being intimidated in the south china sea there have been no military forces nobility bases there china except the united states' military base in the south china sea and that in the philippines is because the united states withdrew its forces in the philippines the united states is back in the philippines the philippines and the united states have an ounce to five different locations scattered all throughout the philippines where u.s. troops will be stationed on a rotational basis this threat to china from yet more u.s. bases on its doorstep was not an issue when an arbitration tribunals ruled against
china's claims to the strategic spratly islands in the south china sea in two thousand and fifteen the us navy refers to blockade that would cut china's lifelines of oil and trade and roll materials. the danger of confrontation grows by the day. the u.s. navy is on the doorstep of china regardless of disputed islands and is there with low draw off ships planes battle groups it's right on the doorstep of chinese ships what a few quid lindt was off california where we ask ourselves that question regularly and it's important to put yourself in the other guy's shoes so we don't operate in the pacific in an effort to scare
china to contain china to back foot china our operations and our presence in first of all is warmly welcomed by the vast majority of the coastal states but secondly is fully accepted by the chinese time after time it's an excuse me is it fully accepted my impression there will by their words the chinese version is this good. then this is what they scared off unloose of bases right around china. mommas drug war ships a provocation of law so they. i state clearly and with conviction america's commitment to seek the peace and
security of a world without nuclear weapons. under obama nuclear warhead spending has risen higher than on to any president since the end of the cold. it's all magicians show because at the same time that obama is talking about that not only is he spending a trillion dollars to modernize u.s. nuclear forces but he's deploying these missile defense systems to encircle russia and china which makes it impossible to get rid of nuclear weapons and that climate everybody wants to look like they're tough say i'm going to be tough i'm going to show you know i'm not afraid of doing anything military i'm not afraid to threatening i'm you know i'm a hairy chested gorilla and you know and you don't want to look like you're weak so what you do is you talk more and more aggressively and and you let and if you don't want to do it yourself. because you maybe think it doesn't look very presidential
you let somebody under you do the talking and we have gotten into a state the united states got into a situation where there's a lot of military. you know saber rattling and it's really being orchestrated from the top you know this seems incredibly dangerous all of this it's an understatement but i grant. when you routinely plan for mass murder you become conditioned to it that's what this this way except that oh yeah we have nuclear weapons the defense secretary has just announced that there will be warships and special forces and planes sent to the philippines and the wall street journal is described this is the vying god of a major u.s. presence in southeast asia and sounds like what is and what is that what's the
been begging the bomb and straight while they were inside begging but they've made multiple requests to meet with them discuss these predictions because they're peer reviewed studies and they've been turned down over and over again they've been peripherally told that well we don't think the long term environmental consequences or nuclear war are all that important if the immediate effects of nuclear are don't stop it but the long term environmental consequences of nuclear or liable to wipe out the human race in one exchange uclear exchange between the u.s. and china. could be the consequences well let me just give you an example of what one chinese four five megaton warhead do to a city in the united states forgot through. the detonation of that weapon over a city would instantly ignite about six or seven hundred square miles on fire. and within twenty to thirty minutes all those fires would call us into a single gigantic firestorm or be no escape from it so all the people there would
perish so the u.s. with say hundreds of. nuclear weapons on chinese cities well when you combine all the smoke from these nuclear weapons detonating it actually creates millions of tons of black carbon spoke all rise above into the stratosphere it's heated by the sun and sacks like a solar collector and that's smoke because of that will say there for ten years or longer and when the smoke does its blocks forming sunlight from reaching the surface of the earth. it becomes so cold in a matter of just a couple weeks that will the temperatures will fall below freezing every day for one to three years. and it will become too cold to grow food crops for at least ten years or longer.
i mean this is like a total disconnect with the changing world you have a giant rising power in this case china. why would you expect the giant pricing power to not want to have more control over its destiny what we should be doing in my view is trying to cultivate a sense of friendship and cooperation and we can have our differences with them if we think they're doing something in trade that we don't like let's have it out with them but this saber rattling is the worst thing we could possibly do was time to show the whole world that america is back bigger and better ads sure that nabbed her before our earlier we don't have victories anymore we used to have victorious but we don't have them when was the last time anybody saw us speeding let's say china. in
a trade deal they kill us we can't continue to allow china to rape our country and that's what they're doing it's stick greatest theft in the history of the world was the new president donald trump has a problem with china you can question now is was will trump continue with the provocations revealed in this room and take control to the. wall was. there never have been two can trace more into dependent on each other than china and the us in history. and china is the largest trading nation in the world and in history so china's economy and theirs aside their lives are linked to the entire world including america the west
and the other countries so i think interdependence between these two countries and among all the nations of the world. speak to peace. we don't have to accept the word of who can drop threats to me is the justified the business and profit of war if we recognize there is another superpower and that's us ordinary people everywhere like the people of.
the marshall islands china the united states by speaking out they deliver a warning to all of us can we really afford to be silent. welcome back we'll start in the levant and western parts of asia where it is looking quite at the moment not serious indifferent precipitation temperatures struggling amati down kazakstan maximum of minus one degrees fine around the caspian sea double figures for tara by highs of nineteen he says so the mediterranean also looking pretty quiet at the moment for beirut temperatures still getting into the twenty's rather cooler than in jerusalem at fourteen degrees heading down into the arabian peninsula we've got twenty four degrees as
a high in doha but there is just a chance of the odd shower and so it could be cloudy at times but otherwise looking fine so that dropping out of the winds is out welcome here mecca still coming in thirty two degrees heading through into friday it should be a generally dry but turn a bit more breeze picking up from the south this time so temperatures here not too bad twenty five degrees again for abu dhabi across into southern portions of africa for much of south africa weather conditions looking dry and fine for botswana namibia to looking fine but we have got showers for the coast of mozambique east coast of madagascar two and then as you move up through parts of zimbabwe into zambia and angola we've seen some downpours here and lyceum i soon temperature into sucker of twenty seven degrees celsius. you are making very pointed remarks where on line the main u.s. response to drug use and the drug trade over the last fifty years has been
decriminalized or if you join us on sex you know you will first just wakes up the over the morning and says i want to color the world in darkness and this is a dialogue and that could be was leading to some of the confusion online about people saying they don't actually know what's going on join the global conversation at this time on al-jazeera. al-jazeera. swear every since.
