for some kind of a peaceful resolution in yemen they've offered in the past to negotiate dialogue between all the parties involved they've stressed that the situation is yemen is critical to the stability of this region but when it comes to the blame that they are being accused of launching these attacks the iranians say that they have had nothing to do with it and that the accusations are baseless they have yet to the american government has yet to provide any kind of solid evidence or proof that iran was behind such an attack the analysts that we've spoken to here say that these latest accusations from the u.s. come at a time when the u.s. president donald trump is eager to have a meeting with iran's president hassan rouhani at the united nations later this month when the 2 will be there but the rains have said that that will never happen until the united states lifts the sanctions that is it's imposed on iran since they withdrew from the nuclear deal have also been discussions in the united nations about these attacks where the u.n. special envoy for yemen was giving his schedule briefing our diplomatic editor
4:01 am
james bays has more on this now from new york normally this monthly meeting deals with the grim reality of life inside yemen but it was overtaken by events on the other side of the saudi border one thing we can be certain and that is this extremely serious incident like the traditions of a regional conflict. and the report more that much. with yemen in some way or. none of that. is good for you. and this is so far in just his 2nd appearance in the security council the new u.s. ambassador made it clear washington believes these didn't stage this attack on the road claims of responsibility have been made but as secretary of state mike pompei all has clearly stated there is no evidence that the attacks came from yemen.
4:02 am
emerging information indicates that responsibility lies with iran are the u.s. allies still party to the nuclear deal with iran did not apportion blame at the moment we're still assessing what happened and who is responsible for the attorneys once this is been stablished we will discuss with our partners how to proceed in a responsible manner we hope the united international response to these awful attacks in recent days there have been talk when world leaders gather here for the u.n. general assembly next week of a meeting between president trump and president rouhani now there's the specter of war things could go either way expect a week of fast moving developments and rollercoaster diplomacy james bows out jazeera but the united nations.

balla turkish president russia type i do want says there's been progress towards a political solution to end the war in syria he's been hosting his russian and iranian counterparts in ankara for talks focusing on the last the last rebel held province which is under attack from syrian government forces and russian warplanes all 3 leaders have expressed concern about the risk of a deterioration in at the humanitarian situation that is sunny. we have refugees amassed on our borders and we can't sit and watch this such a dangerous development will affect not only our country but also europe we need to continue our responsibilities and we have decided there is a need to establish safe areas support our troops. of course there is concern about the situation in the north east of syria security issues in this area as well as in other parts of the country should be resolved only on the basis of the principles of preserving the sovereignty and territorial integrity we believe that it is unacceptable to divide syria into zones of influence. or you want to shall has the
4:04 am
latest on this now from i'm crying. there was a focus on trying to find a solution to it lib and this is maybe the short time mute or the short term issue that was being discussed it and it being the last remaining stronghold of the armed opposition inside syria but there were 2 other kind of elements or facets to these discussions a medium term one which was about the repaired tradition of all or the majority of syrian refugees but in order to do that there needed to be an agreement on that buffer zone present around made it clear that he was unwavering in his the mond that's turkey be given lights through and stop to 30 kilometers inside syria but there was no sign of an agreement being reached through the statements that were made by both in ukraine and russian president last ahead going on the prior plan but looking at protests in france thousands turned out against the prospect of pension reforms in the country. i'm alan fischer in height on the island

of grand bahama where a former american football star turned doctor has returned told to help people in the aftermath of hurricane dorian. hello again it's good to be back here across parts of australia we're seeing a big difference in temperature with a system that is now pushing through across much of the southeast to the north it's going to be quite warm we're looking at brisbane here on tuesday 30 degrees but just go down the coast to sydney notice we're only in the teens that's all because we do have a system bring some rain across the area down towards melbourne only to the teens as well temperatures will stay quite warm to the north of that system as we go towards wednesday we're going to still stay into the high twenty's there temptress the city though it's going to stay rainy but your temperature commit to about $1000.00 views there up towards the north and into the central part of the
4:06 am
continent we are looking at temperatures into the mid thirty's with alice springs at. 34 degrees there well for the north in the south island of zealand we're going to susan snow in the higher elevations particularly down here towards the south island now this big system is pushing through and it's going to bring a lot of precipitation so in the overnight hours we do expect to see probably a lot of that rain turn to snow in higher elevations but down towards the coast it is going to be a very rainy day so for christ church expect to see 12 degrees there and for auckland at 50 and then very quickly across japan it is going to be quite nice tempers are coming up too we're going to see temperatures reaching into the low thirty's across many areas but for some by some clouds in your forecast for the time to $28.00 in sapporo at $22.00. there is a huge group of people at work behind our screens and the palette they have is massive that is to keep swiping through a twitter feed that's just on the way we all click i agree to the terms and
4:07 am
conditions that's most of us never even give it a 2nd thought and actually that's designed as well ali really explores how designers are manipulating r.p. havior and the final episode all hail the algorithm. welcome back a look at the top stories now u.s. president donald trump says it looks like iran was responsible for saturday's attack on saudi arabia's oil facilities a saudi that coalition fighting and yemen says it was carried out using iranian weapons but to iran has denied any involvement a saudi oil attacks triggered

a record jump in the price of crude when trading opened on monday. prices have since settled but are still up around 12 percent and turkey's president is saying there's been progress towards a political solution to end the war in syria he's been hosting his russian and iranian counterparts in ankara for talks focusing on the last breath the whole province of. well now britain's prime minister has been booed by crowds after holding bricks it talks with the prime minister of luxembourg or as johnson was due to hold a joint press conference with. but left after receiving a frosty reception from protesters as the latest. was it was an extraordinary end to an unusual day british prime minister boris johnson blocked out of the prime minister of luxembourg's offices just minutes before the 2 leaders would do to hold a press conference. a crowd of anti brogues it protesters chanted in buda as he
4:09 am
went left alone at the podium exactly a battle was physically frustrated had met johnson to discuss berg's it but said the british leader had offered nothing to convince him and other e.u. leaders to reopen the withdrawal agreement for me and i just have one withdraw agreement on the table and it's torn from the last 2 there are no changes there are no concrete proposals for the moment on the table and i won't even agree meant to ideas. we need written proposals and the time is ticking so she stop speaking the act johnson said left because of the noisy protest he disagreed with battle that no progress had been made on briggs it i think we've got just the right amount of time to do it do we now in the 17th or 18th of october but as i never tire of tell you if we can't do it do whatever it was we won't worry about because then we'll make
4:10 am
sure that we come out on the 31st of october do you made it before his talks with exactly a battle boris johnson had met the head of the european commission. for a working lunch but it seems the back meeting didn't go very well either after the 2 hour lunch in a restaurant the european commission released a statement that said the british leader had failed to offer any new alternatives to the irish backstop part of the withdrawal agreement the jobs board scrapped outside the restaurant pro e.u. demonstrators had gathered many of us lived here for many years but we're still deeply concerned about. what is currently happening in the u.k. and what potentially in the no deal except for the e.u. will mean the country of rex it is a disaster it will be a disaster for great britain and it's also not good for the e.u. as a whole the 2 sides did agree to continue and intensify talks said that europe never
4:11 am
loses patience but the day's events suggest that the use goodwill could be running out the trash al-jazeera luxembourg. protests have been taking place in the french capital as more workers joined demonstrations against proposed pension reforms president emanuel micro is attempting to streamline 42 different state pension systems as santa gay going our explains from paris. since the 1990 s. there have been several attempts to completely overhaul france's pension system i'm president and manuel mccall believes he is the person to do that however on monday lawyers medical professionals and professionals from the industry gathered in central powers to push back against those proposed reforms because they say it will leave them out of pocket. when we'll be resized year but it's still game dating low in the us so we pay more for this is not for us we are not we're not.
4:12 am
fighting for her so we are fighting for the system that works a justice in france we paid huge sums to to for the. retirement we don't want to take with them by the government now one of the main moderates unions has said that it agrees to these plans pension reforms but as there are currently 42 systems in place mr macro wants to see it consolidated into one system where it will be based on individual contributions the union saying however that it is in effect penalizes against people who have wage increases because of promotions 0 experience but however the unions have failed to mobilize any big movement soul general strikes and mr mccollum is currently receiving a little bit of a boost in the approval ratings board who look to avoid trying to consolidate on that and avoid his what's been happening all year which is another tying in with
4:13 am
all the issues such as the fuel tax hike or indeed a hike in fuel prices and avoid mass disruptions as we saw in the past year with the yellow vest movement. now in the u.s. talks between the united auto workers union and common factor general loss' have started again off the 10s of thousands of workers went on strike more than $49000.00 factory employees walked off the job at 55 plants right across the country but a call he reports to us now from detroit. this is a scene that's playing out at 55 different factories and facilities all across the united states these people work for general motors their union has decided to go on strike now this is a huge company almost 50000 people walked off the job those horns are here for more info union members so they are still talking general motors and the and what they do seem pretty far apart for its part the company says its workers need to pay more
4:14 am
for their health insurance but the union has a whole list of demands they say that they want to see better pay they want to see fewer temporary workers and g.m. has been restructuring they did closing down plants this one scheduled to close down in january the union says those plans need to be put on hold so the talks do continue but really we've talked workers here and they say they're expecting this could go on for weeks and concerns are growing for the mental welfare of people in the bahamas who survived hurricane dorian it's been 2 weeks since the category 5 super storm hit and more than a 1000 people a still missing mental health counselors are helping those traumatized by the storm at least 15000 people are in need of shelter food and medical care well i reporter alan fisher is in the town of high rock on grand bahama island where a temporary clinic staffed by volunteers has been set up. this may not look like much but for the people of high rock it means everything this hilltop community on
4:15 am
the island of grand bahama lost its clinic in hurricane dorian the building flood and but no for the people here there is a temporary clinic staffed by 20 volunteers from the international medical corps we have doctors nurses medicines mental health experts and we're seeing things that we commonly see at this point and it may crop very lacerations people that are running out of medications chronic conditions turning to acute conditions and room. care a lot of room care getting giving out tetanus as well as people come back and are trying to clean up what's left of their homes the international medical corps has committed to be here for at least 3 months the facility is pretty basic but the reality is it will save lives or. among those helping out myron rolle a former american football star he's now a neurosurgeon in boston but he was born in the bahamas and that's was pulled him
4:16 am
back to help as i saw the hurricane hit being up in boston in my nice apartment at harvard you know i was i said man i have to do something for my people for my country is means a lot to me this country has as taught me much and i visited every summer as a child you know i was christened here as baptize here i'm on a national stamp here i mean this country is tied within me and and so i called our staff at massachusetts general hospital if there was a global disaster team that was going to the bahamas i want to be a part of it one big concern is disease in the days and weeks after the disaster it can be a killer at the clinic that makes that place likely and reminds people here they haven't been forgotten alan fischer i'll just see the high road on the island of grand bahama in israel media reports that benjamin netanyahu wants to major military strike on gaza last week a dominating the final hours of campaigning before the polls open on tuesday
4:17 am
israeli prime minister is reported to have been talked out of the action by senior defense officials netanyahu is denying opposition accusations that he played politics with national security force that reports. benjamin netanyahu had rarely if ever looked publicly angrier than he did on the 30th of may this year defeated in his effort to form a coalition government he rented anyone else from being given that chance by forcing through an unprecedented election rewrote it's unbelievable other door lieberman is now part of the left the sense of betrayal was at his former political fixer former foreign and defense minister ally and enemy for more than 20 years avigdor lieberman lieberman's professed reason for keeping his secular rightwing party out of government with his opposition to ultra orthodox jews being exempted from military service something that in yahoo's ultra orthodox political partners would not concede. nurit kadar spent 5 years following lieberman for
4:18 am
a documentary released this week finding him a highly guarded interviewee but he says it was clear that whatever the ideological differences between him and netanyahu that divorce was deeply personal the only thing the only sentence. he said that friendship is something it's for life. you know if there is some foundation that it really go through all life and it was broken and it was shattered you know the human hasn't explicitly ruled out joining a netanyahu led government this time around but his policy demands make it unlikely at best and with his secular stance boosting his position in the polls his status as kingmaker has been strengthened netanyahu spent the last week talking in terms familiar from previous campaigns of threats and promises the threat of iran's nuclear program the threat requiring police at polling stations of palestinian
4:19 am
israeli voter fraud the promise to annex the jordan valley and parts of the occupied city of hebron all of it designed to motivate his right wing base. but netanyahu reelection offers a better chance to fight off 3 looming corruption cases the parliament or knesset could even vote to grant him immunity but the polls suggest there could be a similar outcome to last time with netanyahu is likud party running almost even with the opposition blue and white led by former army chief benny gantz as a good chance neither will have enough support from smaller parties to piece together a majority coalition some predict months more uncertainty while each side tries and fails to form a government increasing the pressure on netanyahu and his indictment is expected to happen in the 1st half of the summer that would be during the 2nd period of 6 weeks in which a candidate would be given a chance to form a government and if that indictment happens then the likud will then realize ok we don't like overthrowing leaders but now we have no choice israel's 2nd election in
4:20 am
5 months is unlikely to be the finish line in the contest to govern the country rather the starting gun for the next round in a fight hurry forsett al-jazeera west jerusalem. more than half the votes in tunisia's presidential election have been counted and 2 political outsiders look set to go through the next round well professor chi site is currently in the top spot and in 2nd place is jailed media magnate now bill curry a leading $24.00 other candidates including the prime minister former president and the defense minister official results are expected on tuesday the winning candidate will need more than 50 percent of the vote but many think that's unlikely and a runoff vote is expected next month. but just a quick look at the stories making headlines for you now the u.s. president says it looks like iran was responsible for saturday's attack on saudi
4:21 am
arabia's oil facilities but added that the white house wants to definitively find out who is behind it donald trump made the comments before holding talks with bahrain's crown prince in washington d.c. iran has denied any involvement and says the drones were launched by yemen's who fees but the saudi led coalition fighting in yemen says the attack on the iran copilots was carried out using iranian weapons and did not originate from that. the united states is we're prepared that any country in the history of over in history if we have to go that way as to whether or not we go that way we'll see who got to find out definitively who did it we have to speak to saudi arabia they have to have a lot of they have to have a lot in the game also and you know they're willing to do that but i will tell you that was a very large attack. it could be met with an attack many many times larger very easily by our country but we're going to find out who definitively did it.
4:22 am
turkish president as you type one says there's been progress towards a political solution to end the war in syria is been hosting his russian and iranian counterparts in ankara for talks focusing on well that's the last rebel held province which is under attack from syrian government forces and russian warplanes the leaders expressed concern about the risk of a deterioration in the humanitarian situation there meanwhile in the united states talks between the united auto workers union and comedy factory general motors have restarted after $49000.00 workers went on strike the union is pushing for better wages health benefits and job security guarantees. the. person's prime minister has been booed by crowds often making an early exit from bracks it talks with the prime minister of luxemburg johnson also met the head of the european commission. says person has yet to offer any legally operational
4:23 am
solutions well that wraps up your top stories that's all for myself and the team here in london all hail the algorithm is the program coming up next stay with us.
4:24 am
there is a huge group of people at work behind our screens they cold behavior architects dissuasive designers or user experience specialists and the power they have is massive and that urge to keep swiping through twitter feed that's designed for the way we all click i agree to the terms and conditions that's designed swiping left or right on jindo and that's designed to evolve we live in an online world of someone else's making oh and most of us have never even give it a 2nd fold and actually that's design is we're over.
4:25 am
san francisco it's the mecca for tech designers silicon valley this place pioneered the art of constructing optimizing and enhancing a lot of the technology we use every day it's turbo charge the speed at which we use the internet and made navigating the way more ensuring but it's also given us a full sense of security. but. i've lost count of the number of times i've clicked i agree to get into a website we all have to do it as we speed around the internet we face hundreds of these annoying pop ups and consent forms all demanding a response from us and yes i call them annoying because that is exactly what they are they may look like that they're there to provide us with control but the reality is far from it when users click on i agree to the terms and conditions that
4:26 am
they see a privacy policy and they click on it they may think that they're actually being given control of their personal data what to collect it how would she used and it's advantageous to companies for them to do that because if something bad happens the tech company could then they actually agreed to this nobody ever reads the terms of service no one should ever be expected to if we actually tried to read every terms and conditions agreement that we came across it's probably the only thing we would do it would have to be our day job because for so long we come into so many and may have the veneer of giving controlled through data subjects but ultimately it's window dressing what a hot saga is what you'd call a school of design he's been studying the psychology ethics and legal implications of new technologies one area he specializes in is start of protection and privacy now before we get into this there's a key time you need to know informed consent this is a principle that comes up
4:27 am
a lot in discussions of our rights online but it's easier to explain in the context of medical so. a doctor explains potential risks and worst case scenarios to the patient once you fully informed you have the option to consent to sergio not in the online world the informed consent is what everyone says ideal but he said even possible consent only works under a very narrow set of conditions and that's when the decision is infrequent like with surgery so we don't have surgery all the time it's when the risks are visceral there are things that we can easily conjure up in our minds and then finally the harm is possibly great so if things go wrong with surgery you could get sick or you could die so we've got an incredible incentive to take that decisions seriously but of course none of those things are present in the data ecosystem we make decisions quite frequently 10100 times
4:28 am
a day. gee harms are not visceral at all they are incredibly opaque and finally the harm is not even that great because the private modern privacy harms aren't huge their death by a 1000 cuts the spin from silicon valley is that they're on our side when it comes to how we control our daughter long privacy policies are very confusing and if you make it long and spell out all the details then you're probably going to reduce the percent of people who read it however take a closer look at the design of the buttons in the pups that when they click and it's clear that the tech companies have the upper hand in the dot a bad design is power and every single design decision makes a certain reality more or less likely and what tech companies and psychologists and other people have known for years is that defaults are notoriously sticky and so if you design the interface so that all the defaults are set to maximize exposure then you're going to get a lot more data in the aggregate than you would if you said all the defaults to
4:29 am
privacy protective because people don't go in and change them so until we fundamentally change the incentives we're still going to see companies manipulating the design of these buttons and these technologies to ensure that you still keep disclosing data and that they still keep getting what's the lifeblood of their business most of us assume that when we go on a website and click that i agree but the site simply collects information that we voluntarily choose to share in reality there are many ways to dot a collection and the mechanics of it are invisible hidden by design the study it isn't just the website you are on that's mining information there is so called 3rd party advertises market is an analytics agency's tracking using tiny bits of so where cookies beacons pixel tags they scoop up incredibly detailed information everything from the computer you're using to how long you hold for a fairly honestly it's a bit mind boggling. and all you really did was click about. informed consent is
4:30 am
a fundamentally broken regulatory mechanism for algorithmic accountability it allows companies to continue to throw risk back onto the user and say you know here's a here's a pop up ad here's a pop up banner that tells you about cookies that no one reads and nobody really even cares about yet we push forward this regime as though it matters to people as though. if if someone clicks i agree then there magically ok with all the data processing that's going to come afterwards which is a little bit of a joke and it's a little bit of a legal fiction yet it's a major component of every almost every data protection framework around the world once you've crossed the i agree hurdle now in the clutches of the website and this is where design takes on a whole new level of importance the job is to keep. one of the most successful innovation in marble and website design is something called infinite
4:31 am
scroll. we only see it every single day i think a little scroll to see 3 you'll see without even needing to click. i'm on my way now to meet the creator of this function his name is as a rascal now he no longer works inside be to corporations in early 2018 he co-founded the center for humane technologies. all of our apps all of so compelling companies are competing for our attention and because it's such a cutthroat game of trying to get our attention where you know tens of billions of dollars they have to increasingly point more powerful computers at our heads to try to frack us for that attention and we've all had that experience of going to you tube and you think i'm going to watch one video and then like
4:32 am
somehow. you shake your head an hour has passed like what why how is that the technology has hypnotized us this tech unitized nation is key to what's called the attention economy our tension is a finite currency in the online world and it's only as long as websites and apps have no attention that they have no business and our data retention economy is just this it says if we are not paying for a product well the come to have to make something money somehow. how do they do it they do it by. selling our attention to advertisers or to other groups that want us to do something they're trying to make these systems as effective as possible at influencing your decisions they click as much information is about you as they can like who your friends are how you spend your time often they'll munged with like. how will you spend your money if you take all of this data to build a model of you imagine like a little simulator of you that lives in the facebook server and then they can put
4:33 am
things in front of it if you like are you more likely to click this this or this or if we want to get you to hate immigration what kind of message would be are you going to resonate with this message or this message and you can see how this like this or the begins just this race for it for your attention ends up becoming. an entire economy is worth of pressure with the very smartest minds in engineering and the biggest supercomputers trying to make a model of you to be able to influence the kinds of decisions you're going to make . a few years ago you tube set a company wide objective to reach 1000000000 hours of viewing a day netflix created reed hastings has also said multiple times that the company's biggest competitor isn't another website it's sleep so what happens when you give algorithms the goal of maximizing our attention and time online they find our weaknesses and exploit them in 2017 sean parker
4:34 am
a founding member of facebook and its 1st president literally confessed to this at an event how do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible and that means that we need to sort of give you a little dope of me in here every once in a while because someone like her commented on a photo or a post or whatever and that's going to get you to contribute more content to a social validation feedback loop that it's like i mean it's exactly the kind of thing that a packer like myself would come up with because you're exploiting a vulnerability and human psychology no it's not as though silicon valley pioneered the tricks and tactics of addiction a persuasive design many tech designers openly admit using insights from behavioral scientists of the early 20th century but the concept of randomly scheduled rewards study developed by american cycle of just b.f. skinner in the 1950 s.
4:35 am
he created what's become known as the skin of books a simple contraption he used to study pigeons and even raccoons at the start of the process a pigeon is given a food every time it picks the would pick or turns a full circle when the word turnip is as the experiment proceeds the rewards become less frequent they take place at random but by the. time the behavior has been established the pigeon keeps picking will turning not knowing when it might get through but in anticipation that or would could become. a boxes with pivotal in demonstrating how design had the power to modify behavior and it randomly scheduled rewards work for pigeons why not humans skin this concept is in fact at the heart of a lot of addictive design from casino machines such as slot machines to social media . smartphones are unnervingly similar to stop machines think about your facebook instagram
4:36 am
a painter speeds we all swipe down pause and then wait to see what will appear went back to those randomly scheduled boards again you'll swipe could result in a new comment on a photo when you like or a piece of spam will software update you don't really know and if that unpredictability that makes it so addictive. natasha dosh will lose a cultural anthropologist who spent more than 15 years studying the algorithms behind this way steve designed just like on a slot machine when you're texting or when you are looking through the news feed you really never know what's coming down the pike you never know when you're going to sort of hit that jackpot so to speak when it's coming and how much it will be so the randomness is very important to keep you hooked and i think the fact that we're down bullying money in a casino isn't really that different than what we're doing because in both cases
4:37 am
what we're really gambling is our attention and our time right and across the board we're sitting there sort of hoping for some little reward to never knowing when it's going to. in all cases where we're sort of sitting alone with the machine there's no natural stopping point i think that the similarities are. quite striking we check our phones over 150 times a day or it is like put up put up it's the 1st thing we look at when i wake up the last thing we look at before we go to sleep it's like we're glued to it and that's that's by design we now have like over $2000000000.00 skinner boxes and people's pockets we are running the largest experiment like psychological experiment that the world has ever seen by orders of magnitude one out of every 4 human beings on earth has a skinner box which is learning how to uniquely target that. super fascinating in the abstract but sort of tariff when you think about what it's doing the research
4:38 am
is being done and the evidence is clear that digital technology is being designed with the intention to make us attics it's not a secret in the tech industry that 2 of the biggest tech because bill gates and the late steve jobs admitted they consciously limited the amount of time their children were allowed to engage with the products they helped create the problem is real but the media can often sensationalize the issue of tech addiction and make it harder for us to understand. i think that the reason people read maybe reach for the metaphor of crack cocaine is because they see that as a sort of high speed hyper intensive form of addiction and you know while i don't use that metaphor myself i do think that within the spectrum of media addiction there are certain ones that are more high potency you could say and those are you know if we're going to use the language of addiction they have a higher event frequency think about horse race you go to the track you've got to
4:39 am
really wait for that event to happen if you are rapidly engaged in an activity a twitter thread. that is more high potency it has a higher event frequency which means each event has an opportunity to draw you in more to reinforce that behavior more so i think we really can apply the language of addiction to the different media i have a an ongoing. frustration which is that whenever. i am still for a 2nd i have this impulse to reach into my pocket and pull out my phone and then i get angry at myself because i say that's not right just just enjoy this moment right this big deal with yourself for a 2nd and then i get angry at myself that my phone has that much power right i'm angry that i'm subject to the design of a technology in such
4:40 am
a way that i have difficulty sort of resisting its allure but of course everything about these technologies is built to to to create that impulse to make it feel as though it's irresistible there's such emphasis put on free choice and being able to be a consumer and you make decisions in the marketplace about what you want to do can you have free will but at the same time the very people who are promoting that new . of the person as a consumer sovereign are operating and designing their technology with a very different human subject in mind it's somebody who can like a rat or a pigeon or any other animal be incentivized and motivated and hooked and have their attention redirected and that's really interesting to me because it is a kind of return to skinner i think you wouldn't have heard that in the eighty's or
4:41 am
ninety's that would have even been creeping you to think about someone designing your behavior but now it's become accepted that you can be a behavior designer and behavior design was one part of what as they used to do in a previous life however he is now one of a growing number of industry insiders who are taking a more critical stance towards silicon just. talking to him let me wonder does he regret his pot inventing. and want to be like humble about it if i had invented it would have been invented i just haven't been the right place for the right time think about the right kind of thing. yes i do regret it but i do think it talks to like the naive 80 of being like oh here's just a cool feature. and making it and even if it's great for the user without thinking about the effects it'll happen if you can scale it up 100000000 people or 1000000000 people where this little thing that i went around to like twitter and
4:42 am
google and all these other companies go a guy who should adopt this now is wasted quite literally hundreds of millions of human hours. i'm sure all of us have had someone say to us stop looking at your phone or why are you so addicted to social media and before i started this series i thought maybe there was something wrong with me i just had no idea how deliberately designed our online experience is and how these design algorithms are made to lessen. its i asked everyone i spoke to how do we change this can we change how online design works regulation cannot be expected to happen on its own within. these corporations right who are profiting from this because there is just too deep of a conflict of interest and so the only viable kind of regulation is going to have to come from the outside we have to have a public conversation about what is actually going on in these products how are
4:43 am
they working and once we understand that as a collective what do we want to limit and constrain so if you start with the assumption that people are never going to fully understands the risks of algorithms and the way in which that interacts with the data then we have to think about what else might work in its place and the data protection regimes like the general data protection regulation are a great foundation and one of the ways in which we could really improve upon that is to embrace a trust basis so instead of putting all of the risk on the user the requirements of protecting people would fall on the big company that is using the algorithms that's using the data i think there is going to be a huge shift from just human centered design as we call it in our field is like put
4:44 am
the human at the center which is was a big movement to thinking about human protective design we say that the tools that are big. things are so powerful that they cause real damage to us individually for mental health to our relationships to our children and to us to society toward democracy means to having civil discourse. and that move to human protective to say everything is. i think is super hopeful because then we can actually have technology which does what it was supposed to the 1st place which is extend our best. so if you're concerned about the ways in which data is being collected now rhythms are being used to affect your life there are 3 things i think you can do one use the tools that are given to you use privacy dashboards used 2 factor authentication
4:45 am
which is really valuable to be more deliberate in critical about the ways in which company companies are asking for your information and the devices that you adopt from the services you participate in understand that companies are trying to tell you things through design and they're trying to make things easier or harder and think about whether you want things to be easier and one of the costs of making things easier and i understand that companies are trying to get your consent because their entire business depends on it and so think about that as you go forward and finally i think that design and consent and privacy and rhythms need to be a political issue and so if someone's running for office ask them what their stance is on algorithmic accountability ask them what their stance is on privacy and data collection because if we get better rules about how the data is collected now grooms are used and we might all be better off we're at this inflection point where
4:46 am
our technology is beginning. to make predictions about us that are better than the predictions we make about ourselves and one of the best ways of the documenting is by learning about ourselves more just like you stop and really ask yourself like before you post something to facebook or answer i'm like what why am i doing this like what are my motivations if you sort of like slow down your thought process often i found that will be like oh i pulling this app out because i'm a little bit bored or everyone else has pulled up their phones when feeling a little socially awkward oh that's curious. or maybe like i'm having this experience and i sort of want to show off just a little bit and just like stopping and thinking about like what are my motivations for doing things i found to be agreed. an occupation. for spending my time in ways that i wish i had. i'll just say that i recommend having a general attitude shift where you understand yourself
4:47 am
as an organism as a creature that can like any other number of creatures and animals be turned in certain directions have your attention swayed caught captured hooked i find it liberating to recognize all of the forces that are exerting these these different powers on mean she turned my attention in one way or another and somehow realizing that helps me to disconnect a lot because it makes me a little bit angry. and i don't feel so bad about myself i feel bad about what's being done to me and then i'm more able to disconnect.

running 6 continents across the deep. bringing the story say to young people of the other unknown to the bottom of the money unless there. were out the words of the russian account for palestinian refugees ultra 0. 0. hello i'm the star of the attack and this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes were there for go to different or to redo the 1st clip
4:51 am
donald trump says he believes iran was responsible for an attack on a saudi oil refinery but is waiting for a final proof of terror on his involvement. and as global oil prices soar reports suggested could take months for saudi oil production to return to normal. benjamin netanyahu faces his toughest personal challenge in years as israelis prepare to voters in a 2nd general election and less than 6 months and general motors strike close to $50000.00 employees stop where as america's biggest carmaker will be live in detroit. now u.s. president donald trump says. he believes that iran was behind saturday's attacks that crippled more than hoffa of saudi arabia's oil production but he says he doesn't want a war and will wait to see definitive proof of tehran involvement before deciding
4:52 am
how to respond america's close ally the united states is we're prepared that any country in the history. of in history if we have to go that way as to whether or not we go that way we'll see who got to find out definitively who did it we have to speak to saudi arabia they have to have a lot of they have to have a lot in the game also and you know they're willing to do that but i will tell you that was a very large attack. it could be met with an attack many many times larger very easily by our country but we're going to find out who definitively did it while america's close ally the u.k. says it will work with international partners to present quote the widest and most effective response saudi arabia says the attacks were carried out using a rainy and weapons but terror on maintains it's not responsible yemen street the rebels say they were behind the attacks and have wanted that more strikes are
4:53 am
coming from each allan's has our top story. the u.s. government says it's already knows who did this but iran denies it was behind the attacks on saudi oil infrastructure claims by yemen's who see rebels come out and join me down and therefore i am not sure what do you minis are doing is the just simply defending themselves this is a reciprocal attack against aggression the state owned oil company saudi am co says the fires knocked out more than half of its entire day the output close to 6000000 barrels of oil according to the saudi military the weapons were not yemeni and nor was the territory they were launched from those kind of. thing that. i have you see. and we have more right now to the. point that we know. that they have been have conducted that but
4:54 am
we know the. initial assessment also would be is it going to be it is it wasn't donald trump warned iran that the u.s. is locked and loaded to respond to the strikes on up cake but other countries urging caution here which is how. the who feels have taken responsibility for these attacks at the moment we are analyzing along with our partners who is responsible for this attack and how it could happen if we need to do so with the necessary call and i want to read all your. fault that we have noticed the relevant reports pondering who is to blame in the absence of a conclusive investigation i think is in itself not very responsible china's position is that we oppose any moves to expand or intensify conflict the impact of an estimated 5 percent dip in global supplies sense or oil prices on a wild ride up 20 percent before coming back down some investors and analysts.
4:55 am
initially spooked by the time european markets opened assurances from the u.s. and countries like russia that reserves would be freed up had helped settle nerves well though some european markets are up and down a little contagion from this attack does appear to be limited for the moment but as donald trump's bellicose tweets highlights this is a volatile situation and how long it takes for saudi to get production back on track plus the next moves from washington and tehran are all things to watch out for we're chalons london well gabrielle is on di is live for us in washington d.c. gabe as we have seen before president trying now appears to be reluctant to go to war despite his locked and loaded tweet even more mixed signals down yeah there are a lot of mixed signals from the president on one side we saw secretary of state mike pompei o coming out on sunday and saying that saudi arabia was raised i'm sorry
4:56 am
that iran was responsible for the attack against saudi arabia and he said that iran was responsible for hundreds hundreds of other attacks on saudi arabia infrastructure as well but now we're hearing president trump indicating that he believes iran is responsible but not specifically naming iran he said when he was asked do you think iran is a sponsor he said well it's sure looking that way but trump taking the attitude that he says that the intelligence apparatus is going through all of the information he says we know the exact location of everything we pretty much know everything already but he said he's going to wait until all of this definitive evidence comes to his desk before they release it publicly because as of right now while the united states is pointing the finger toward iran they have not released any evidence yet to back that up and gabe are also hearing that all options remain on the table and the defense secretary has been on the phone to the saudi crown prince so talk us through what's likely to happen now. yeah there's
4:57 am
a whole host of options that are on the table of course in any situation like this diplomatic and or military or both but we do know that the secretary of defense mark esper did call the saudi crown prince also spoke to the iraqi defense minister as well as well as briefed president trump well also know that secretary of state mike pompei o will be traveling with other administration officials to saudi arabia soon but we don't know exactly when this is all part of a larger effort by the united states to basically assist saudi arabia in this we do not know what the next steps will be of course but trump has made it clear that any thing or any decision that is taken diplomatic or otherwise will be coronated closely with. watching those developments for us from washington d.c. thank you gabe one outlet correspondent all such a bar you has the view from tehran. latest reaction to this event sort of unfolded
4:58 am
is that the iranian foreign ministry spokesperson on post mousavi has reiterated the country's position and that is that these accusations are baseless and it's not the 1st time that iran has received such accusations from the u.s. government the foreign ministry spokesperson up us who said he said that the yemeni people have the right to the found themselves in the news are not supplying weapons to the who see fighters there but that it is saudi arabia who is the aggressor and iran will continue to push for some kind of a peaceful resolution in yemen they've offered in the past to negotiate dialogue between all the parties involved they've stressed that the situation museum is critical to the stability of this region but when it comes to the blame that they are being accused of launching these attacks the iranians say that they have had nothing to do with it and that the accusations are baseless they have yet to the american government has yet to provide any kind of solid evidence or proof that
4:59 am
iran was behind such an attack the analysts that we've spoken to here say that these latest accusations from the u.s. come at a time when the u.s. president donald trump is eager to have a meeting with iran's president hassan rouhani at the united nations later this month when the 2 will be there but the reins of said that that will never happen until the united states lifts the sanctions that it's imposed on iran since they withdrew from the nuclear deal well iraq says the u.s. thinks it's confident the attacks didn't come from the rocky territory u.s. secretary of state might be called prime minister. this morning charles stratford has more from baghdad. the iraqi prime minister's office has released a statement regarding details of a phone conversation that was had with when the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh and the prime minister here saying that the u.s. secretary of state confirmed information that the iraqi government have that iraqi territory was not used to launch these attacks the statement went on to say that
5:00 am
iraq's or itself is having a vital role in trying to diffuse this crisis it's fair to say though that this tension has escalated in recent months between the u.s. and iran a lot of attention has been paid towards certain very powerful armed groups in this country that are backed by iran that support iran here the so-called popular mobilization forces that were set up in 2014 to fight i saw were integrated into the iraqi security forces in 2016 and there's been as i say a lot of questions as to how they would respond to any kind of potential military escalation by the u.s. against iran or iranian interests now there has been no official statement by the popular mobilisation forces in relation to this current crisis the iraqi government is very keen to stress that iraq is very much doing all it can to diffuse this
5:01 am
crisis but of course this major u.s. ally iraq its biggest regional ally is iran iran has a huge role here politically economically and militarily and as this crisis goes forward and seems to escalate it just highlights just how difficult the situation is for the iraqi government. well to delve a little more into the geopolitics of all this jeff colgan now joins us live on skype from providence and rose at rhode island he's an associate professor of political science at brown university thanks for being with us i want to start with mike pompei as upcoming visit to saudi arabia we know he's more hawkish on iran the trump is so how significant is it that he is the one going to riyadh well it is remarkable that he's going 1st thanks for having me on but it is remarkable that we're in that he's going at a time when we're seeing differences between. him and the president sort of disagreements about. the view on iraq and iran and in particular.
5:02 am
the desire of president trump to sit down and have a go sheesh ns with their money well we're also hearing from the saudis that they're saying that they can defend themselves but there are obviously some vulnerabilities here given that these attacks could be carried out on the feste place and the hurt these are now vowing that they'll be more yeah that's right i mean there's been a a long going on going conflict with the ladies of course and the saudis are keen to ward off any criticism that they're dependent on others particularly denoted states for their defense but that said it matters a lot whether we're talking about defending you know saudi arabia defending itself from drone attacks from rebels or you know a much more serious competition with neighboring iran talk us through geoff through trauma strategy here if there is actually
5:03 am
a strategy because we're getting these mixed signals about pushing iran to the brink of conflict essentially is this about trying to get more leverage for a deal especially as we approach an election year in the u.s. . well president trump certainly is keen to be seen as the deal maker and he's worked hard to try to you know increase pressure on iran using his maximum pressure strategy but it's not clear that it's working and i think most experts on regional dynamics and on international bargaining in general are really concerned about his strategy because it it doesn't seem like it's getting to any kind of outcome that would be superior to what was already in place under president obama before president trump took over jeff area south of it in a book about oil and conflict how is it whale playing into all of the 10s of the regional tensions that we're seeing in the gulf now and are we heading towards a conflict partly fueled by oil well certainly when you have 20 percent of the
5:04 am
world's oil supply flowing out of the. persian gulf through the strait of hormuz this is naturally the kind of choke point that is it's going to garner attention and potential friction when you have these kinds of disputes between powerful actors in the region but i want to caution against the idea that oil is causing the war it's of course the instrument it's the means of that kind of conflict but at the end of the day that the root issues here go much deeper and have to do with kind of the longstanding tension in the rivalry between saudi arabia and iran and yemen unfortunately is being caught in the middle of that. jeff called and an associate professor of political science at brown university thank you for your insights on al jazeera thanks so much. well let's look
5:05 am
a little more at the situation with the oil exactly how long it will take to fix damage the world's largest processing plant is yet to be revealed now the reuters news agency is reporting that it could take months for saudi oil production to return to normal and already riyadh's been forced to shut down one pipeline to bahrain the uncertainty has caused a surge in the price of oil spiking at 19 percent the biggest single day increase on record when monday trading began they've since settled slightly but is still up around 12 percent and this all could dampen investor confidence in saudi aramco his upcoming public listing which the kingdom hoped would generate up to $100000000000.00 and there are reports now that saudi authorities are considering delaying that i.p.o. on a dollar to nani is an economist and former deputy prime minister of jordan he says the situation will continue to evolve. what will happen right now there is the challenge in front of that saudi arabia faces is that it should continue to supply
5:06 am
its usual customers with oil otherwise they would start either digging into their own strategic petroleum reserves or they would look for or for alternatives to buy from other markets and so therefore i think that the saudis will have to go to a 3rd or reserves if the situation is going to linger for a long time i believe that many countries would probably refrain from using their reserves because they want to use them for their own domestic purposes and emergencies and they prefer to keep them otherwise they will have to deplane ish the reserves they use with higher prices it depends on how long. the repairs are going to take and how fast it can be done whether there were the increase in oil will be gradual or do they have to wait until the end of the process before they can go back to their normal production when the attacks have
5:07 am
also been discussed at the united nations where the u.n. envoy for yemen was giving a shuttle briefing how diplomatic it is that time space reports. normally this monthly meeting deals with the grim reality of life inside yemen but it was overtaken by events on the other side of the saudi border one thing we can be certain and that is this extremely serious incident like the tribal sins of a region or that much higher and more that much. with yemen in some way or other linked none of that. is good for you. and this is pretty terrifying in just her 2nd appearance in the security council the new u.s. ambassador made it clear washington believes that these didn't stage this attack on their own claims of responsibility have been made but as secretary of state mike comp a.o.
5:08 am
has clearly stated there is no evidence that the attacks came from yemen. emerging information indicates that responsibility lies with iran although u.s. allies still party to the nuclear deal with iran did not apportion blame at the moment we're still assessing what happened and who is responsible for the attorneys once this is been step least we will discuss with our partners how to proceed in a responsible manner we hope the united international response to these all from the turks in recent days there have been talk when world leaders gather here for the un general assembly next week of a meeting between president trump and president rouhani now the specter of war things could go either way expect a week of fast moving developments and roller coaster diplomacy jamesburg 0 at the united nations on there's plenty more ahead on this news hour including hoping to
5:09 am
find a solution to syria's war leaders of turkey russia and iran needs an anchor in search of a political settlement. a life and lockdown we'll have the latest on the situation in indian administered kashmir. and a faith about investigation delivers bad news for a pirate television station he said we'll have those details and sport. in just a few hours from now the polls will open in israel 2nd general election in just over 5 months prime minister benjamin netanyahu is trying to rally right voters as after failing to win a majority in april he says he'll annex all illegal israeli settlements in the occupied west bank but as harry for such reports those pledges may not be enough to get an outright majority. benjamin netanyahu had rarely if ever looked publicly angrier than he did on the 30th of may this year defeated in
5:10 am
his effort to form a. government he rented anyone else from being given that chance by forcing through an unprecedented election rewrite. it's unbelievable other door lieberman is now part of the left the sense of betrayal was at his former political fixer former foreign and defense minister ally and enemy for more than 20 years avigdor lieberman lieberman's professed reason for keeping his secular rightwing party out of government was his opposition to ultra-orthodox jews being exempted from military service something that in yahoo's ultra orthodox political partners would not concede. nurit kadar spent 5 years following lieberman for a documentary released this week finding him a highly guarded interviewee but he says it was clear that whatever the ideological differences between him and netanyahu that divorce was deeply personal the only thing the only sentence. he said that friendship
5:11 am
is something it's for life. you know it's some foundation that it really go through all life and it was broken and it was shattered and you know the woman hasn't explicitly ruled out joining the netanyahu government this time around but his policy demands make it unlikely at best and with his secular stance boosting his position in the polls his status as kingmaker has been strengthened netanyahu spent the last week talking in terms familiar from previous campaigns of threats and promises the threat of iran's nuclear program the threat requiring police at polling stations of palestinian israeli voter fraud the promise to annex the jordan valley and parts of the occupied city of hebron all of it designed to motivate his right wing base. but netanyahu reelection offers a better chance to fight off 3 looming corruption cases the parliament will knesset could even vote to grant him immunity but the polls suggest there could be
5:12 am
a similar outcome to last time with netanyahu is likud party running almost even with the opposition blue and white led by former army chief benny gantz as a good chance neither will have enough support from smaller parties to piece together a majority coalition some predict months more uncertainty while each side tries and fails to form a government increasing the pressure on netanyahu his indictment is expected to happen in the 1st half of the summer that would be during the 2nd period of 6 weeks in which a candidate would be given a chance to form a government and if that indictment happens then the likud well then realize ok we don't like overthrowing leaders but now we have no choice israel's 2nd election in 5 months is unlikely to be the finish line in the contest to govern the country rather the starting gun for the next round in a fight hurry for said al-jazeera west jerusalem. well now 2 thirds of votes have been counted in china's ias presidential election and it looks like 2 political
5:13 am
outsiders are in the lead the official result isn't expected until tuesday but it seems like a close race between you know professor. and jailed media mogul in the bill currently the winning candidate will need more than 50 percent of the voters but many think that's unlikely and a runoff is expected in november. the turkish president says there's been progress towards a political solution to the war in syria he's been hosting his russian under rainy and counterparts in ankara for talks focusing on now that's the last rebel held province home to many people who've been displaced from other former opposition areas it's still under attack from the syrian government forces and russian warplanes. we have refused a visa master on our borders and we can sit and watch this such a dangerous development will affect not only our country but also europe we need to continue our responsibilities and we have decided there is a need to establish safe areas support our troops and our correspondents are was at
5:14 am
that summit in ankara. a real emphasis on the policies pursued by turkey iran and russia underlined by the opening statements of the respective presidents in this 5th round of trying not to summits that's trying to find some sort of a solution through the almost 9 years now war long war in syria the turkish president focusing on his country's menu truth namely that of the syrian refugees almost 3000000 that's have been living in turkey not for several years and the need to establish a buffer zone or a safe zone on the syrian side of the border up until the east of the year freights this river inside syria if we could maybe divide the issues that are being discussed here in this summit into 3 categories short term medium term and long term short term the most immediate issue that the 3 leaders are talking about is the issue of it live the last remaining stand for on the opposition groups
5:15 am
opposition groups in the regime of bashar assad turkey wants to ensure that there is a total halt to russian and syrian air strikes on attacks on this issue not only to ensure the safety of the people there now and that they don't leave and to try to keep but also to establish not safe zone that i mentioned so that syrians in turkey can actually start moving back and that brings us to the last point which is the longer term issues and that is what will happen post conflict how will syria be governed and here in the summits we understand that there will be a discussion about the formation of a constitutional committee to draft the documents that's with help post war syria be governed but it is difficult to see how an agreement would be reached considering how much blood has been spilt in this war. britain's prime minister has made an early exit from bracks that talks and luxemburg. johnson
5:16 am
canceled a planned joint press conference with prime minister has a view better at the last minute and he met the head of the european commission john clarke duncan says press and is yet to offer any legally operational solutions . for me and i just have to go on with strong agreement on the table and if someone from last year there are no changes there are no concrete proposals for the moment on the table and i want to give an agreement to ideas. we need written proposals and the time is ticking so should stop speaking but act. but johnson says he can see a better breaks a deal taking shape we are now in the stage where we have to start really accelerating the work and that was the agreement today with this record you're going with me show body and look i want to get people's we've got to manage this
5:17 am
carefully yes there is a good chance of a deal yes i can see the shape of it. everybody can see roughly what could be done but it will require. movement and the system by which the e.u. can control the u.k. after we leave. the so-called backstop. to go from that treaty and that needs to happen. well our correspondents hash about her explains just why barra's johnson pulled out of that joint press conference. well there were rather extraordinary scenes at the prime minister's office in luxembourg boris johnson the british prime minister was supposed to be having. a press conference with exactly abetting the prime minister of luxembourg just outside the courtyard with this was due to take place very visible a crowd of about 100 protesters chanting slogans against boris johnson it was incredibly loud so much though that many wondered how on earth the speakers in this
5:18 am
press conference would be heard but then the doors open to the prime minister's office and for storms and through the crowd and straight out leaving it's obvious battle the prime minister of luxembourg a moment at the podium to take this press conference better was visibly quite shaken he had held about 30 minutes worth of talks with boris johnson they had of course discussed drugs it's a battle made it very clear that his fall is key and of the european leaders were concerned their position had changed he said the boris johnson had not bought anything new to luxembourg or one proposed anything new in an earlier meeting with the european commission heads. that you covered expected johnson to come up with some realistic or viable alternative stick the contentious irish backstop part of the with george agreement the job he wants to scrap but it is very clear said battle that there were no real propositions made and he said that the european union was fed up of being having its future held hostage as britain still tries to work out what it wants to do while still ahead on al-jazeera we'll look at why

a teacher is a striking in jordan forcing more than a 1000000 children to stay at home. and we'll tell you where forest fires are causing a widespread toxic aids. and italian police arrest you ventus ultras claiming they tried to blackmail the cloud that's coming up with peace at its peak. hello again it's good have you back we are crossing 8 states of course we have been watching hurricane humberto but now that system is making its way towards the northeast towards bermuda so the danger there is going to be increasing over the next couple days we'll be watching the path very carefully but expect to see more storm surge in clouds as we go towards mid week well for the rest united states things not looking too bad here across the southeast though temperatures are on the

hello again i'm not. mind of our top stories this hour u.s. president on trial and says it's looking like iran was behind saturday's attacks that crippled more than half of saudi arabia's oil production but terror and maintains it's not responsible demonstrate the rebel favor a well behind the attacks. well oil prices jumped more than 10 percent on monday after prices initially said to 19 percent after saudi oil facilities were targeted the attacks have raised concerns over global oil. supplies off to saudi arabia was forced to cut production by off. and turkey's president says there's been progress

towards a political solution to the war in syria has been hosting his russian and to rein in counterparts in ankara for talks focusing on the. well nearly $50000.00 general motors workers in the u.s. will continue striking for a 2nd day the strike appears to be hurting general motors is with stocks falling by about 4 percent on sunday analysts estimates the action is costing the company $50000000.00 a day the union is pushing for better wages and health benefits and job security guarantees it's the largest industrial action to hit the car maker in more than a decade but our correspondent patty culhane is live for us in detroit patty talk us through how these talks have been going and it appears they could continue for some time which suggests the 2 sides are still pretty far paul's. they are pretty far apart at least according to the union the spokesman came out and said that they'd only agreed to about 2 percent of what they needed to agree to
5:24 am
we do know that the talks continue we believe that they're still speaking just just on the way but they have a pretty big difference about what they want. which is a profitable company had lost a little bit of money in the last quarter a little bit $8000000000.00 in the last year or so still making a big profit but they say it's time for their employees to pay more for their health insurance costs for its part the union says they took a huge hit when g.m. was about to go bankrupt and the u.s. taxpayers had to battle them out to the tune of about $33000000000.00 the union made concessions so now they're saying it is time now that the company is profitable again for them to give the workers a little bit more money they also want to decrease the amount of temporary workers those are people who do the same job but get paid about half of what other employees make and they want to see g.m. slow down their restructuring g.m. says they expect a downturn sales are going to fall so they've decided to show about 5 factories in
5:25 am
north america one of the plants are at today's was shot in january and 1 of the guys on the picket line one of the workers said look i have a really tough job i work more than 8 hours a day on my feet no breaks and it's really physically straining he says he deserves to make a little bit of profit that the company's making so you know a bit of an unusual step we've seen the company come out and out their proposal would usually that's quite kept quiet the union coming out and saying this proposals and good enough so the talks continue meanwhile the picket lines here in detroit continue well patty speaking about g.m. profits some estimates are now suggesting that g.m. could do something like up to $100000000.00 a day during the strike and we're also now hearing that it could result in the downgrading of g.m.'s credit rating and just how broad of an impact is this strike likely to have and how soon. well the auto industry does make up a sizeable portion of the u.s.
5:26 am
economy it's about 3 percent of g.d.p. gross domestic product and it's not just it's not just g.m. so what the union here does the auto workers union they basically pick one company they come up with a contract and then they use that as a template for all the other 2 big car companies so that there's a lot riding on the line for these millions of workers that not only work for the auto companies directly but all of their suppliers so it could have a knock on effect because it's not just again the workers who are on the picket lines it's the people who make the parts that supply the cars it's the truck drivers who drive the cars so the longer this goes the more it costs not just the company but the workers i spoke with $1.00 worker today he said he usually takes home about $900.00 a week. the what the union pays them as sort of strike pay and that doesn't go into effect for a couple of weeks is $250.00 so he said he expected this he thought that the counter to go to the break down so he's been saving money so you can imagine if you
5:27 am
haven't been doing that going from $900.00 a week to $250.00 a week that's going to get tough the longer this goes on indeed. covering that strike price in detroit thank you for that update well in france more professional professions have joined to protest against proposed pension reforms doctors and lawyers nesses pilots and cabin crew were out in force and paris president emanuel macron is trying to streamline 42 different state pension systems several unions planned to hold more protests and they said this month sonia kagan has been speaking to protest as in paris about just why they're concerned with the pension system of the whole. since the 1990 s. there have been several attempts to completely overhaul france's pension system and president kohl believes he is the person to do that however on monday lawyers medical professionals and professionals from the industry gathered in central
5:28 am
powers to push back against those proposed reforms because they say it will leave them out of pocket. when we can be reset yeah it's to gain dating low in the us so we pay more for this is not for us we are not we're not. fighting for her so we are fighting for the system the opposite just this in france we paid huge sums to 2 for the. retirement and we don't want it taken by the government now one of the main moderate unions has said that it agrees to these plans pension reforms but as there are currently 42 systems in place mr macro wants to see it consolidated into one system where it would be based on individual contributions the union saying however that it is in effect penalizes against people who had wage increases because of promotions experience but however the unions have failed to
5:29 am
mobilize any big movement sold general strikes and mr mccollum is currently receiving a little bit of a boost in the approval ratings board who look to avoid trying to consolidate on that and avoid his what's been happening all year which is another tying in with other issues such as the fuel tax hike going to hike in fuel prices and avoid mass disruptions as we saw in the past year with the yellow vest movement and in other industrial action a teacher's strike in jordan is forcing more than a 1000000 students to stay at home the teachers in public schools want their pay raised by 50 percent but the government says it just doesn't have the money and as an end to what it calls an illegal walkout and reports from the capital among. it's the start of the day at this primary school in amman and like other public schools in jordan the teachers are present but the students are not. instead of holding
5:30 am
lessons teachers are passing time by repairing what they can desks windows and other parts of the building that show years of wear and a lack of investment they too feel neglected and are refusing to do their job until they get a pay rise. when the school year to begin you've got a very optimistic event to what was supposed to be a peaceful protest to express meets but then the government suddenly exculpate of the situation and i thought das. and thousands of other teachers were met by riot police. these pictures went viral on social media appearing to show them being tear gassed and beaten more than 50 were detained outraged by their treatment the jordan teacher syndicate and its 80000 members announced an open ended strike which is now in its 2nd week. they say $560.00 a month used to be a decent average salary years ago but inflation higher taxes and a rising cost of living has taken its toll more and more public school teachers are

becoming drivers waiters taking other jobs in the evenings just to keep afloat even though it's against the law to do so. the teachers want to strike 5 years ago for the same reason then they decided to suspend the strike according to a verbal agreement that they would be paid. a no off to 5 years of normal in the program the teachers have again decided to strike mom has doing her 9th grade homework even though she has no where to submit it her mother makes sure she doesn't fall behind. in the vicinity of the home i'm definitely supporting the teaches and they're brought to get their demands and the government should respond to what they're asking for in my opinion i don't think they're asking for too much on the contrary the increase they're asking for doesn't even cover living expenses these days those opposed to the strike worry their children will get behind in their studies the government says it can't afford to meet the teacher's demands and
5:32 am
wants them to return to the classrooms talks between government leaders and the teachers association are stalled for the time being so students will remain absent from class across the country it appears that the teachers have the public on their side for now at least the grievances over low pay and the rising cost of living are resonating with other jordanians who are also struggling to make ends meet and are schapelle al-jazeera. now the u.n. is warning that revenge of muslims who remain in myanmar fill a face a serious risk of genocide it says there are a patch relation of written to refugees from camps in bangladesh is quite impossible un investigators have found or hinges on living in inhumane conditions in the state the team is also accused the army of new war crimes including forced labor and torture of civilians at least $65000.00 people have been displaced across northern rakhine and southern states since january. well india's top court has

5:53 am
want very much for us to protect them but i say well we have to work there was an attack on saudi arabia and there was an attack on us but we would certainly help them but despite the alliance between washington and riyadh there are doubts about how much clout saudi arabia has to force the u.s. into military action this has been very interested in the past few months. on many issues so the trouble mistress and the u.s. in general is looked willing to basically fight a war and we have the sultan's the who the rebels in yemen backed by iran claimed responsibility for the attacks on monday iran's president hassan rouhani flatly rejected the u.s. ascertain tehran was involved saying the who these were behind it and for legitimate reasons. the many people are exercising their legitimate right of

self-defense the attacks are reciprocal and the main solution is to halt these attacks the solution for the yemeni crisis is also political we believe that. president trump said it was a large attack against saudi arabia but could be met with an attack many times larger this is threatening language trump has used in the past against syria north korea and even iran without following through with significant military action but clearly tensions are escalating trump said secretary of state mike pompei o. and other administration officials would be traveling to riyadh soon to coordinate a response. al-jazeera washington. has that here from tehran. latest reaction to this events that have unfolded is that the iranian foreign ministry spokesperson outpost mousavi has reiterated the country's position and that is that these accusations are baseless and it's not the
5:55 am
1st time that iran has received such accusations from the u.s. government the foreign ministry spokesperson up us mousavi said that the yemeni people have the right to defend themselves and the iranians are not supplying weapons to the who see fighters there but that it is saudi arabia who is the aggressor and iran will continue to push for some kind of a peaceful resolution in yemen they've offered in the past to negotiate dialogue between all the parties involved they've stressed that the situation museum is critical to the stability of this region but when it comes to the blame that they are being accused of launching these attacks the iranians say that they have had nothing to do with it and that the accusations are baseless they have yet to the american government has yet to provide any kind of solid evidence or proof that iran was behind such an attack the analysts that we've spoken to here say that these latest accusations from the u.s. come at a time when the u.s. president donald trump is eager to have
5:56 am
a meeting with iran's president hassan rouhani of the united nations later this month when the 2 will be there but the reins of said that that will never happen until the united states lifts the sanctions that it's imposed on iran since they withdrew from the nuclear deal well iraq says the u.s. thinks it's confident the attacks didn't come from its territory u.s. secretary of state mike cold prime minister abdul mahdi on sunday morning has more from the capital baghdad. the iraqi prime minister's office has released a statement regarding details of a phone conversation that was had with when the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh and the prime minister here saying that the u.s. secretary of state confirmed information that the iraqi government have that iraqi territory was not used to launch these attacks the statement went on to say that iraq's or itself is having a vital role in trying to diffuse this crisis it's fair to say though that this
5:57 am
tension has escalated in recent months between the u.s. and iran a lot of attention has been paid towards certain very powerful armed groups in this country that are backed by iran that support iran here the so-called popular mobilization forces that were set up in 2014 to fight i saw were integrated into the iraqi security forces in 2016 and there's been as i say a lot of questions as to how they would respond to any kind of potential military escalation by the u.s. against iran or iranian interests now there has been no official statement by the popular mobilisation forces in relation to this current crisis the iraqi government is very keen to stress that iraq is very much doing all it can to diffuse this crisis but of course this major u.s. ally iraq its biggest regional ally is iran iran has a huge role here politically economically and militarily and as this crisis goes

forward and seems to escalate it just highlights just how difficult the situation is for the iraqi government. well in just a few hours from now polls will open an israel 2nd general election in just over 5 months prime minister benjamin netanyahu is trying to rally right wing voters after failing to win a majority in april he says he will annex all settlements in the occupied west bank but as harry force that reports those pledges may not be enough to get an outright majority. benjamin netanyahu had rarely if ever looked publicly angrier than he did on the 30th of may this year defeated in his effort to form a coalition government he rented anyone else from being given that chance by forcing through an unprecedented election rewrote the global market unbelievable other door lieberman is now part of the left the sense of betrayal was at his former political fixer former foreign and defense minister ally and enemy for more
5:59 am
than 20 years avigdor lieberman lieberman's professed reason for keeping his secular rightwing party out of government was his opposition to ultra-orthodox jews being exempted from military service something that a new nose ultra-orthodox political partners would not concede. nurit kadar spent 5 years following lieberman for a documentary released this week finding him a highly guarded interview but she says it was clear that whatever the ideological differences between him and netanyahu their divorce was deeply personal the only thing the only sentence. he said was that friendship is something it's for life you know if there is some foundation that it really go through all life. and it was broken and it was shattered and you know what lieberman has an explicitly ruled out joining the netanyahu government this time around but his policy demands make it unlikely at best and with his secular

stance boosting his position in the polls his status as kingmaker has been strengthened. the last week talking in terms familiar from previous campaigns of threats and promises the threat of iran's nuclear program the threat requiring police of polling stations of palestinian israeli voter fraud the promise to annex the jordan valley and parts of the occupied city of hebron all of it designed to motivate his right wing base. but netanyahu reelection offers a better chance to fight off the looming corruption cases the parliament will knesset could even vote to grant him immunity but the polls suggest there could be a similar outcome to last time with netanyahu is likud party running almost even with the opposition blue and white led by former army chief benny gantz as a good chance neither will have enough support from smaller parties to piece together a majority coalition some predict months more uncertainty while each side tries and fails to form a government increasing the pressure on netanyahu is an indictment is expected to
6:01 am
happen in the 1st half of the summer that would be during the 2nd period of 6 weeks in which a candidate would be given a chance to form a government and if that indictment happens then the league could well then realize ok we don't like overthrowing leaders but now we have no choice israel 2nd election in 5 months is unlikely to be the finish line in the contest to govern the country rather the starting gun for the next round in a fight hurry for said al-jazeera west jerusalem. turkish president russia says there's been progress towards a political solution to the war in syria he's been hosting his russian and iranian counterparts in ankara for talks focusing on it now that's the last rebel held province home to many people who have been displaced from other former opposition areas and it's under attack from syrian government forces and russian warplanes. we have refugees amassed on our borders and we can sit and watch this such

bahrain the uncertainty has caused a surge in the price of oil spiking by 19 percent the biggest single day increase on record when monday trading began they've since settled slightly but is still up around 12 percent and this all could dampen investor confidence in saudi aramco his upcoming public listing which the kingdom hoped would generate up to $100000000000.00 and there are reports that the saudi authorities are now considering delaying that i.p.o. well gelada nonny is an economist and the former deputy prime minister of jordan and he says the situation will continue to evolve. what will happen right now there is the challenge in front of that saudi arabia faces is that it should continue to supply its usual customers with oil otherwise they would start either digging into their own strategic petroleum reserves all they would look for are for alternatives to buy from other markets and so therefore i think that the saudis will have to go
6:09 am
to the oil reserves if the situation is going to linger for a long time i believe that many countries would probably refrain from using their reserves because they want to reuse them for their own domestic purposes under circle and emergencies and they prefer to keep them otherwise they would have to replenish the reserves they used with the higher prices it depends on how long. the repairs are going to take and how fast it can be done whether they were there or there increase in oil will be gradual or do they have to wait until the end of the repairs process before they can go back to their normal production. now 2 thirds of votes have been counted in china's ears presidential election and it looks like 2 political outsiders are in the lead the official result isn't expected until tuesday but it seems like a close race between law professor case and jailed media mogul no bill currently

counterparts in the capital ankara for talks focusing on the last rebel held province it led well those are the headlines do join me for more news here on al-jazeera the inside story stay with us. how high will petrol prices go because of the attacks in saudi arabia the world's biggest oil exporter is scrambling to repair the damage and try to fight as in yemen are vowing more attacks with a threat for severe think of all the thirst for saudi oil this is inside story.
6:24 am
the welcome to the program. saudi arabia is trying to reassure the world that it will quickly recover from saturday's attacks on his oil plants of the reassurance failed to stop oil prices soaring 19 percent the highest increase in 30 years prices have since eased by concerns remain about the 50 percent current for the world's biggest crude exporter especially because houthi fighters in yemen are vowing more attacks to quit posada's economy you know satellite photos of the damage have been released and donald trump war the u.s. is locked and loaded to respond and ready to release emergency oil reserves if needed while iran but jackets u.s. accusations that it's involved. let's have a look at who has the biggest reserves of oil or member states of the international
6:25 am
energy agency have 90 days of emergency stockpiles in case of crisis the us holds the world's largest fatigue betrayal reserve followed by china japan and south korea almost 80 percent of the world's proven oil reserves are in opec member countries saudi arabia but as well are and iran top the list. now over to our panel in amman. and nanny jordan's former deputy prime minister as well as foreign minister he's also an economist in bern switzerland cornelia mayer an economist as well as an oil and gas specialist at the financial advisor firm mayer resources in london below journalist and i notice on gulf affairs welcome to you all mr and any of the increase in oil prices which
6:26 am
was about 19 percent perhaps the biggest percent to percentage spike in 3 decades is this an indication of a panic. or a deeper economic crisis here well i think that it is mostly panic because there was no reason for oil prices and the normal circumstances to have increased that fast in one day so it was a complete response to the act. of the bomb being of the of the facilities well facilities in saudi arabia. and despite all the. ideas and their pronouncements of president. trump and as well as the minister of and secretary of energy in the states to come to market and also in saudi arabia is the collaboration that they want to use their reserves but people still panicked because they don't know how much time it would take the saudis to repair those
6:27 am
facilities and how much to what would happen to their actual usage of reserves they have not started to preserve so they are in a way if there is complex there is a complete absence of specific information or is speculative. is it mostly because of the absence of further information from the saudi government as. it was saying about the scope of the of the damage the whether saudi arabia will be able to get its act together with output in a time so that is creating the panic that we're seeing across the global markets. i think it's 2 things it's 1st of all markets always overshoot they always overshoot and they understood and then people didn't do the numbers when you look at how many reserves we have and yet also how many strategic how many reserves saudi aramco have saudi aramco can between 30 and 45 days of saudi production they have reserves
6:28 am
across the globe so people weren't really doing the numbers and i think now what will be really important is how fast can call you know get the. cake processing plant back up and let's mind that let's be clear processing plants are not like like switches it will take time to get it up so we have information need and then we need to differentiate there is steet current shortfall because of the of the of the attacks and then there is also suddenly analysts realized oh there is a risk premium and geopolitical risk premium that had been all but gone so in that sense we have to see how that will pan out but in the end oil markets still you know up until saturday everybody said oh we are so over supplied and once one steel plant is out to get up and running again we're still basically oversupplied bill
6:29 am
reconsider the risk premium for future deals is this something that is just related to this particular incident of the things is something which is going to be taken into account for a longer term. i think that the response to her is not simply related to this particular incident as severe as it is the risk factor will will build in the fact that the saudis shown themselves incapable of protecting their most crucial and valuable asset and after all this attack hit the heart of the saudi aramco it was a pinpoint attack it was very destructive we don't know how long it's going to take to get that facility up to speed again and and as your other commentators have noted that is a huge question because the longer it takes the more damaging it will be to the saudis and most particularly to the saudi economy so there's a lot of a reason for people to be concerned and i would think that the appetite for example
6:30 am
for the around go i.p.o. will be weaning somewhat certainly on the international front because of this attack. the hostess said that the flu 10 jones to can last this daring attack of the heart of saudi arabia do you think of this is something that could potentially change the dynamics to have shaped global energy markets well until we come to grips with the fact that the horse is it was the horses who did it probably there may have technically and logistically helped by other forces of all the outside forces like iran but still that means that we are you know we have turned the page and this is a new phase in the war so in a way the question remains in as far as future tensions are concerned whether the saudis and their allies would retaliate in order to restore the what we call it
6:31 am
might call a deterrence balance or will they might. if they don't do that then they feel that they have a go shifting position has been weakened so in a way while they are worried about it further retaliation by the whole with is. aiming at their oil facilities which would aggravate the situation saudi arabia i think that because of the said you can't decision which the 1st of the last one the friday morning raid was carried i think that now we have a new dimensions to contend with and i believe that. the saudis will retaliate eventually and that may invite further retaliations or counter rivero to televisions from the horses and there if that continues without an interference and trying to bring that to all parties to the table to sit down and discuss then we
6:32 am
may be in for a big and the along. with the fact that the war that only god knows how it will end clearly it's either the same. these have been concerned treating their processing plants in one particular area and this explains why after the attack almost a half of their output has been severed do you think this is something that will take the saudis will or weeks and weeks in the future to be able to contain well who did this thing is it is in one in one part because the largest oil field you know it's in the eastern province where the oil is so obviously the biggest processing plant is where the oil is so in that sense but i think we've responded to the former prime minister i totally agree with him and one of the things we need to look at this also what lessons has steve sowed the defense apparatus learned because clearly saudi's to 3rd largest procurer of. weaponry of
6:33 am
arms so in that sense you know day to day we'll need to proof that they will really look at their at that that they can it's not that they're not just going off to after airplanes but also off the drone so day will need to prove that they have to they have to equipment they have will have to prove that they know very well how to use that equipment bill willet when you look at the of this particular case which is the attack targeting the oil fields in saudi arabia i think it's exposer underscores in a way or another the vulnerability of the oil production facilities in the middle is this something of the should be taken into consideration by key players in the future. oh yes i think so it it it he usually underscores the vulnerability and you'll recall that the who he said previously hit the oil pipelines doing really minor damage this this particular hit as i said straining at the heart of saudi
6:34 am
aramco will send shock waves i think throughout the middle east of whom most particularly in saudi arabia because after all it's not just they have a structure of saudi aramco that is potentially vulnerable it is also. desalination plants that could potentially be civilian targets really this this new technology that either the who these or those who are assisting the who these are suggestions these attacks may have come from iraq from the us to xabi the shia militias in retaliation for an israeli attack in august that that that this kind of situation can can rapidly escalate and and i think as as as the former prime minister said it could lead to something that could be potentially a war of enormous and really quite. horrible consequences so what we're seeing now analysts talking about and and governments also raising the issue of tapping into cities ixtoc bias to be able to mitigate the risks and also stop in
6:35 am
a further spike in oil prices is this one i agree with that i just go is this because of the confusion which has been spreading all over the world about what's happening as i was arabia. no i think you know at the beginning i agree with carol with the with cornelia that at the beginning you know there were there was completely people will believe yes there's a detailed information of 1st of all you know saudi arabia itself is a large consumer of oil production but saudi arabia right now is producing 10000000 barrels roughly of which 4000000 they use 12 so in a way their capacity to export is about 6000000 barrels a day if they lose 5.7 that means that does not leave them with much oil to export so in a way the saudis need to do something that will impact their budget and also impact
6:36 am
their g.d.p. growth and their diversification program on the other hand i think that if they do off $4440.00 television and order to change the whole thing is not to repeat the same experience without severe consequences then they have to do it to hit back and mostly that will be many civilian casualties such casualties will cause a great deal of of of panic but the word like only like. said has yes has for about 4100000000 barrels of reserves these are these are the statistics from the international energy. agency the i.a.e.a. and accordingly and the united states has $727000000.00 barrels which belong which are for the government in saudi arabia their reserves are about bit of a range between $100.00 and it
6:37 am
a 1000000 to 200000000 those are distributed all over the world but also consumer can large consumer countries have all of their own reserves but they don't like to see their origin to drop to critical limits so they're eventually they may use probably 40. percent or 50 percent of them but then if they think that this one is going to rock they will have to start by oga need new sources of supply and we cannot rely on reserves and on so. for this particular reason why are we southerly particular over the last 24 hours in all these talk about the need to tap into emergency oil inventor is to maintain stability. well i think part of it is you know donald trump is not a detail man right so he did probably didn't do quite the numbers speak for that so before he made his point his is point and it is part of you know we want to calm the markets people want to calm the markets because you saw at the beginning off
6:38 am
today it was 20 percent up the oil price now it's about between 8 and 9 percent up so it came down considerably so so this is mainly 2 to come to markets and to say look there's enough there's enough oil there bad them as as both woman said it's really the issue is where from here and this is not just saudi arabia it is also do you a you know the u.a.e. is also in that coalition against the who with this and then the u.a.e. you know they have also processing plants so so the whole region it did g.c.c. it's always been that that island of stability in that sea of unrest and strife that is the middle east so this brings this brings to cheese sisi and especially saudi arabia one step closer to the ramifications of that strife and it will be very important i think for everybody that cooler heads prevail because if we have
6:39 am
too much tit for tat then he can really get out of control bill if you look at the map of the region you have 2 hot spots here you have war in yemen and then we saw the aftermath of the war basically attacks targeting oil facilities in saudi arabia but at the same time you have the showdown between the iranians and the american over the straits of homeowners potentially we're talking about what could potentially become a huge crisis in the world if southerly you have a disruption in the strait of hormuz and then you have a disruption in saudi arabia. yes and we shouldn't forget also that iraq the war in iraq against isis is dire she is not over and in fact that remains a threat iraq is still a very fragile in a very fragile situation and you're right i mean there are a couple of things that could go simply wrong that could lead to a major confrontation that's the concern and and it is important that everyone step
6:40 am
back and calm down i mean it's interesting don't trump is taking a lot of flak from american commentators because of the that tweet in which he said i'm waiting to hear from the saudis before i decide what to do why is it as some wags of said why is the saudi crown prince dictating american foreign policy and whether we're whether or not we go to war but the fact is that i have to say that that probably is a sensible thing to say because the last thing that we need now is any further escalation of the rain ians are playing a very clever game here they're pushing and pushing will they have the sense to draw back i don't think they will but if the americans for example did hit this did hit iran that would take this thing in a whole new orbit and a very dangerous orbit so i think we do need to have this locus pause and the fact is that oprah says did drop quite dramatically as when he said that they when they
6:41 am
started 20 percent they're now down below 10 percent so there is that calming factor at play here what does this crisis mean full big importers china india japan and other countries. well you know it means that they probably would like to diversify their sources of oil in the future and 2nd i think it may. invite also other issues like using pipelines instead of shipping because shipping into the war esque areas and continues gets brought directed i think the. marine shipment of oil might be the 1st victim of such of such a development so therefore the cost of insurance the cost of transportation of oil will become an important factor in determining how far prices could go so in
6:42 am
a way i look at the future and i say that probably they may look for other sources and they may also resort to constructing long. pipelines the 2nd issue is that you know vulnerability of china and india in particular because each imports about $10000000.00 barrels of oil every day and they constitute about 20 percent of total world demand so in a way that that that is a very important thing for them to take into account as busy an interruption of oil would mean that their economic growth will be even even squeezed further so i believe that you know here if saudi arabia must be extremely careful about maintaining the same supplies and having the same contracts with both countries japan and south korea as well in order to guarantee that those clients would not seek other alternatives and would continue to deal with saudi arabia korea we would
6:43 am
be talking about the geopolitical implications or implications of the crisis but then let's talk a little bit about the impact of this crisis average people of of the world because usually spike at all. prices are more about people having to pay more at gas bombs decline in spending and decline in economic growth is this something that is going to take some time or is just going to be a shorter term impact of the crisis that we see in. well it's a shorter term impact of the crisis and what height always notice instead whenever your price goes up it seem needed to pass through to day to day to the consumer however when it goes down it's not that immediately passed through to the consumer which is so which is which is how if you're an amount every if you're an international oil company you make your money or part of your money the thing to do to really be clear here yes it will pass through and we will have to see where we
6:44 am
go but let's not forget the backdrop up until friday night last week we were all worried about oversupply and ever fording oil prices still pick and it's 10 allied to nations opec plus took $1200000.00 barrels out of the system we thought we needed to put in in december when they meet again take out another 1000000 barrel or 500000 barrels so in that sense let's look against the backdrop yes there is a spike it has come down but we really need to look a little bit a how quickly how quickly this facility comes up again you know how saudi arabia is able to assess was the analysts and the global markets and let's give it 2 weeks to see really how much did the consumer is going to be hit at the pump ok bill sunday arabia has been using for almost 60 or 70 years to for its political
6:45 am
and financial leverage worldwide knol people are saying that this mineral longer be the case because even if they go for the initial offering public offering for our own cause there's absolutely no way they're going to get any closer to $1.00 trillion dollars they were hoping to achieve the saudi arabia have to redefine is present in the near future given the strings of attacks he has faced over the last 2 months. well i think this is represents a huge setback for mountain some on the crown prince as you say he wanted to do this i.p.o. this sale of shares of saudi aramco initially it announced it was going to happen in 2019 it was postponed why because buyers are saying well if you're going to sell you've got to be transparent you've got to tell us open up the books and show us where the money is going well of course it's something the world family the ruling family the house is out does not want to do because a big chunk of that money goes directly into their pockets and there are many many
6:46 am
pockets to be lined the saudis have reshuffled for example they replace the energy minister a highly respected minister and of and have put in brother half brother mama been solomonic to to run and to run the strip down situation around go they put someone else in charge as a chairman of around cause a big shift going on just at the point that this attack hits and and as i said investors are looking at this and thinking well you know is this really a safe bet because there is a huge risk factor here and and who's to say that the saudis showing themselves really incapable of that of preventing such a terrific terrific and powerful attack who's to say another one couldn't happen again so we have lots of questions that our lives are non is facing he needs this money from the the i.p.o. i don't think he's going to get it and as i say the longer this thing stretches out
6:47 am

immigrants who left the middle east and built exceptional lives over seeds. weaving into the fabric of society of their adoptive countries. bonds which look in that way we'll have some pretty good to. have a some very strong studies done but it's certainly looking that way at this moment and. we'll let you know spin trump said he does not want war with iran but said his administration would coordinate closely with riyadh and in response the saudis want very much for us to protect them but i say well we have to work there was an attack on saudi arabia. and there was a date attack on us but we would certainly help them but despite the alliance between washington in riyadh there are doubts about how much clout saudi arabia has to force the us and to military action this elias has been very at this to the the quests still months i thought on many issues a so the you think the truck but mr

a show and the us in joe is looked with ink to basically flight to wardle be have the so it's the hoot the rebels in yemen backed by iran claimed responsibility for the attacks on monday iran's president hassan rouhani flatly rejected the us s. or taste in tehran was involved saying the huth these were behind it and for legitimate reasons cottage amount of the a many people are exercising their legitimate right of self defense the attacks or reciprocal and the made solution is to halt these attacks the solution for the em any crisis is also political we believe that president trump said it was a large attack again saudi arabia but could be met with an attack many times larger this is threatening language trump has used in the past again syria north korea and even iran without following through with significant military action but clearly

these american bases form a giant news in circling china with missiles bombers warships. if you are in beijing looking out he stood on the tallest building in beijing and looked out at 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 the chinese the 2000 years ago built the great wall to keep the barbarians out of nothing they'd be a game of this film is to break a silence the united states and china may well be on a path toward
6:59 am
a nuclear war is no longer unthinkable. shanghai today is a prosperous international city still wrong by the communists at least in name. yes there are issues with human rights especially the right to speak against the state and challenge it. i had a range to see professor zion way way a close aide to the late things paying the man who changed china your old boss thanks presided over the bloodshed in tim square what would you
7:00 am
say to the survivors. of tiananmen square because so many of those did fight for what they saw as democratic change in china. in 1809 there were 2 political force one was those reprise any by the chinese students their hero was of me high gorbachev who happened to be in their slogan was silly unions today charles to more than so the idea was political reform 1st other reforms 2nd otherwise china will be hopeless and messy which opposite he saw. it he sought you know china must have economic reform 1st as a reform 2nd this priority must be set clear. unfortunately at that particular moment in 99 to 2 political forces could not reach
7:01 am
a compromise so definitely a tragedy occurred. it was more than a tragedy it was a matter. 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 violin a child is a law you know by march so. pretty free of expression similar views are by many people but he really going to the exchange. challenge the government to implement democratic reforms and spent
7:02 am
a total of 13 years in prison. why can't a confident china except a criticism like this so more their peace committing makes huge mistake oh the chinese an explanation if you cross a line of course you're violent constitution uveitis so many laws you should be punished. were and yet in china today the spirit of protest and dissent lives on in different forms. in 2015 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 a land being grap by officials to for commercial development and the farmers are
7:03 am
not being compensated to properly and the farmers now are no more wary of their rights and their protests all young workers from the factory they demand a better wage a better working conditions but many of the protests their economic driven not political driven they are not 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 for a collision. and what i meant was there never. the japanese island of okinawa is occupied by 32 military installations
7:04 am
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 h a t 7 from a kosher my book is one of the leaders of a nonviolent resistance let's challenging washington's pivot to asia.

7:15 am
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 rioting in 1970 scores of american g.i.'s pulled from a cause which was set alight. for washington and its compliant ally and tokyo it's this kind of insurrection but they fear.
7:16 am
during the making of this film a young woman was raped and murdered allegedly by an american military contract from one of the bases c. it was the latest of thousands 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 at this to launch pad you know. most of them

7:24 am
of in history if we have to go that way as to whether or not we go that way we'll see we've got to find out definitively who did it we have to speak to saudi arabia they have to have a lot of they have to have a lot in the game also and you know they're willing to do that but i will tell you that was a very large attack. it could be met with an attack many many times larger very easily by our country but we're going to find out who definitively did it polls will open in the coming hours in israel 2nd general election in just over 5 months prime minister benjamin netanyahu is trying to rally rightwing votes as after failing to win a majority in april. britain's prime minister has made an early exit from bracks at talks in luxembourg. johnson canceled a planned joint news conference with prime minister better at the last minute

coming war on china. a semi tropical sanctuary of unusual beauty jesuit is a world heritage site. the government of south korea declared it an island of well peace. but on this island of peace has been built one of the most provocative military bases in the world less than 400 miles from shanghai. like all cannava and the marshall islands this is america's front line in its so-called pivot to asia. here in one sun
7:27 am
spoiled again jong fairly age the south korean navy has built a base for american aircraft carriers nuclear submarines and destroyers equipped with the aegis ballistic missile. and aimed at china's defenses . china's lifelines to the world in oil trade resources depend on shipping that comes through checkpoints like this. the u.s. pivot and the asia pacific is really intended to create the ability to put a loaded gun to the head of china and say you know you will do as we say otherwise we will be able to restrict or we'll be able to shut down choke off your importation of oil and other resources.

7:33 am
represented in this extraordinary world map of american military bases. 4000 bases in the united states almost a 1000 bases spread across every corner. the archipelago of empire the bases that we have around the world hidden in plain sight are the 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
7:34 am
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 $50000.00 american troops and japan and there's no country that has better and i'm sure he'll credit kred and 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 52 percent of the earth surface and when you look at their logo it shows an
7:35 am
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
7:36 am
have typically 300 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 places the united states operates a secret ami you know 147 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 and they have in china they want to dominate all over all of the far east they want to dominate just like japan wanted to before world war 2 their
7:37 am
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 panel so he's a military strategist and will plan that 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 1st 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
7:38 am
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 that chinese fighters scrambled that sounds like an escalator. well the again from an american perspective the escalation was the chinese beginning to militarize these islands in the 1st place moving its military capabilities doubt into that region engaging in provocative behavior against the commercial activities of 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
7:39 am
intimidated in the south china sea there have been no military forces nobility bases there the chinese except the united states military but not in the south china sea and not even in the philippines because the united states withdrew its forces in the philippines but united states is back in the philippines the philippines and the united states have announced 5 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 2015 the us navy rehearsal the blockade that would cut china's lifelines of oil and trade and role materials. the danger of
7:40 am
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 one of chinese ships what if the equivalent was off california won't turn we ask ourselves that question regularly and it's important to put yourself in the other guy's shoes so look 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 1st of all is warmly welcomed by the vast majority of the coastal states but secondly is fully accepted by the chinese
7:41 am
time after time it's excuse me is it fully accepted my impression there will by their words the chinese version is this kid. then this is what they scared off a noose of bases right around china. mommas drive warships a provocation of law. today. 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 war it's all magicians show because at the same time that obama is
7:42 am
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 you know i'm not afraid of doing anything military i'm not afraid to threatening i'm you know on the 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 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 so you know saber rattling and it's really being orchestrated
7:43 am
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 is where you accept that oh yeah we have nuclear weapons the defense secretary has just announced that there will be warships and special forces in planes sent to the philippines in the wall street journal is described this is the viking god of a major u.s. presence in southeast asia and sounds like what is this and. what is that what's the purpose i mean where are we going to stop this process before it starts a war. and then if the war starts where does that end.
7:44 am
the scientific studies that they teach by the scientists that predicts that the earth can be made essentially and habitable from nuclear war the scientists have been begging the bomb and strike 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
