3:40 pm
in. the street how they knew was that i was new cool at the preaching on this but. even there just being to go out to vietnam go i start. to. chest by shore once the baikonur blow up. so it seems russia has no grand plan and the west tends to exaggerate the russian threat after the annexation of crimea the intervention in the dorm master darling of image 17 the cyber attacks the concealing of chemical weapons in syria chemical weapons attacks in syria. the hacking the bundestag interference in elections. there are not too many countries who have felt

3:44 pm
in has restored russia's standing in the world for others he's taking the country backwards along the path to isolation. than appears any of us than it did nothing to a new study for those who are going calling but it's a political mission yet i see in this that when you put a new system for what it is that when the seniors notify all because it in your going you can use sun tzu's still use different procedures but only from just the it will fight you and they will boost your scores sure sure. but the least for me sure it. would only do that when. snitch is detected as you new windows. despite what is rhetoric russia isn't as biggest threat to the west as they think. but the resulting isolation

a court hearing for former south african president jacob zuma who wants corruption charges against him dismissed. pakistan where a centuries old tradition is helping poor women struggling to make ends meet. u.s. president has issued a direct threat to iran just days after saying he was prepared for talks tweeted this if iran wants to fight that will be the official end of iran never threatened the united states again iran and its regional rival saudi arabia have toned down their war rhetoric even as the u.s. builds up its military presence in the gulf leader of iran's revolutionary guard says tehran isn't pursuing conflict the saudi foreign ministry issued a statement saying a similar statement rather but added that the kingdom will respond if iran chooses war. examen has called for to emergency summits and valving gulf an arab leaders later this month to discuss the escalating tension headache on hand has more from

washington d.c. . again the u.s. president donald trump sending mixed messages when it comes to his belief of what's happening with iran sending that tweet that he could destroy their country at the same time we've seen several reports that he's told his acting secretary of defense that he doesn't want to go to war with iran so what exactly was the impetus for this tweet well we don't know it could have been that he received the briefing it was sending the message publicly or it could have been that he was watching television felt the need to respond we do know that he has been sending out a lot of tweets over the last couple of hours on sunday after he got back from his golf course at a range of topics everything from promoting a book to talking to college graduates to talking about immigration the economy complaining that fox news is hosting a town hall so the president definitely feeling aggrieved and twitter now is that exactly what led to this tweet we don't know but we do know that we're going to

above and beyond security concerns this is a very drastic step that the u.s. has taken and it will be interesting to see if china retaliates i mean it is true that while waiting on u.s. software but i'll tell you apple relies on chinese made the series so i think they're worried as well because china could retaliate by saying fine you know you you'll have to be a giant export these if you want to take those i phones elsewhere south africa's former president jacob zuma is expected back in court hoping charges will throw out corruption charges against him same as a cancer of fraud if the money laundering and racketeering some of those charges relate to a controversial arms deal exposed while he was deputy president prosecutors say he received money to cover up the illegal purchases of combat for a combat kit for the south african navy for me tim miller is at the high court in pietermaritzburg and she joins us live now from ada so this is a pretty big day. it is an important

day and it's taken a very long time to get to this point they have been here as of for spode moments and delays and according to the former president jacob zuma that's to to the prosecutors in the case and the prosecutors of course say otherwise that this isn't the 1st time that jacob zuma and his legal team of applied for a stay of prosecution essentially having these charges thrown out they did the same back in 2005 at that point weren't successful so this is the 2nd attempt jacob zuma has said for a long time that he does want his day in court he says that he's not guilty of any sort of corruption or wrongdoing but here's a quick look at how the former president got to this point. jacob zuma is most challenging days as president involved protests like these demanding his resignation it's 15 months and zuma succumbed to following months of public dissatisfaction and pressure from within his own party the african national

congress at the heart of his fall from grace where hundreds of corruption allegations zuma was charged specifically in a corruption case going back more than a decade. rosina was deputy president a french arms company tallis $180000000.00 government contract to build 4 frigates africa's navy state prosecutors say tallis agreed to pay zuma half a $1000000.00 rand at around 34000 dollars the deal for his political protection was allegedly brokered by his former financial advisor should be a shake. he was jailed in 2006 for 15 years but was released 2 years later on medical parole the difficulty for the national prosecuting authority is that when they charge should be a shake with corrupting jacob zuma they chose not to charge jacob zuma the former head of the n.p.a. said this was because while they had a prima fucking case or they had a level of evidence against jacob zuma they weren't sure that the case was winnable

zuma was fired as deputy president but stayed in the a.n.c. he was elected president of the party ahead of the 2009 elections which the a.n.c. won zuma then became south africa's president in 2007 zuma was charged with corruption racketeering money laundering and fraud the charges were dropped 2 years later because judges said they'd been political interference but last year prosecutors had another change of mind and the charges were reinstated zuma wants the charges dropped because of what he describes as a political conspiracy jacob zuma is due to appear at this court way it's expected his lawyers will argue that it's been more than a decade since the case against him began and it should be thrown out the former president also says there have been irregularities ahead of the trial including that he has been spied on by the government if he must put on trial it could have massive implications for the divided inseam resume retain significant support going
3:58 pm
to be train time for the agency some members of the party will have to make a difficult decision as to whether they support the former president or not and i think knowing in looking at how divided the parties still is this will really not make their lives easier zuma says he's done nothing wrong but if found guilty could face at least 25 years in prison. now jacob zuma has arrived at court and we are expecting proceedings to begin any time from now now even though they are hundreds of counts against the former president he's actually facing 16 charges 12 of those awful for 2 for corruption one for money laundering and $1.00 other for record tearing we also know that the french arms company tallis is also applying for a stay of prosecution and it's going to take at least 3 to 4 days to hear from the court exactly what happens next and essentially this court process decides where
