i was. i. president. of the consequences if. nuclear threats against the united states. to google's decision. versity policy of free speech but he gets a job nonetheless from wiki leaks. the russian lawyer in the collusion. explains exclusively to us why her story's been exploited by the mainstream media. and. this story has proven to be gold the same many.
thanks for watching out international this wednesday. this story dominating the coverage first this morning when president trumps issued a stern warning to north korea's leader over his threat to carry out a nuclear strike against the united states. north korea. make it even worse threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see the president isn't alone in issuing ominous warnings to north korea a white house aide came out against threats coming from pyongyang saying they should think twice before testing trum this is a little a peugeot the nation if you compare it to our capabilities they don't come near to
being even close to their competitors or so this is blocked this is nothing else except black mail now these comments come after north korea lashed out against the u.s. the state run news agency didn't hold back in the least saying that there would be no bigger mistake than for the u.s. to think that they are safe across the ocean adding that washington will quote pay dearly for the latest wave of sanctions approved by the u.n. threatening retaliation one thousand times over now those new sweeping sanctions against the asian nation restrict the export of coal metals and food to other u.n. member states foreign investment in the country will also be blocked and it's estimated the sanctions will dent north korea's economy by one billion dollars per year for its part north korea sees the u.s. to be at fault for the deterioration of the situation on the korean peninsula. this is the root of the nuclear issue on the korean peninsula and the deterioration of the situation lies with the united states as long as the united states refuses to
stop its hostility and nuclear threats towards the tepee arche the d.p. are key will never bring the nuclear and ballistic missile program to the negotiating table i think the north koreans have put forth look we will stop our missile tests if you stop your war games we've been doing war games on that peninsula for fifty or sixty years from now so what good does it to walk away from that entry point into negotiations other than. the fact that the united states simply does not want to really enter into negotiations so the saber rattling continues to come from both sides escalating already sky high tensions and now trump has taken the dangerous step of all but to cleanse for a north korea what this can't be is an ego fight and right now what it felt like was a fight between trump on one side and kim on the other and to see who could make more outlandish statements and the fear is that if somebody flinches if somebody screws
up there could be hundreds of thousands of dead people here this is a very real fight this is shockingly dangerous and the last thing we need to do is stand down and start bumping chests and talk about who is the bigger man in response to the threat now south korea is seeking permission from washington to develop more powerful ballistic missiles the current agreement with the us means that the south could only develop missiles with a range of up to eight hundred kilometers and with a maximum payload of office but on sunday south korea's leader asked president trump to extend those parameters and the pentagon's indicated that it is likely to agree to that security analyst charles she bridge says the u.s. moved the risk creating another nuclear nation. some talk amongst the in the south and even amongst. us politicians and military that south korea should be encouraged even not let alone allowed to actually develop its own nuclear arsenal either is some talk about that in the last few days and again of course that again
would no doubt ratchet up tension increase instability but of course can count as a as a deterrent or could possibly kind of deterrent against the north assuming of course that the north ever intends to use its weapons and of course assuming that the target of those weapons would be the south rather than perhaps targets further afield they will lash out rhetorical invariably and will i'm certainly not put a halt to their. missile and nuclear weapons program at least not for the forseeable future. wiki leaks is offering a job to a google engineer who was sacked over an internal corporate memo the web giant's moves sparked a debate over free speech in corporations over the last couple of days so now wiki leaks editor jewel in the sun has accused google of censorship and tweeted that it's not fair to fire employees for freely expressing their thoughts engineer james de mall was fired after sending a memo criticizing google's diversity policies his bosses say that breached their code of conduct cullom open next looks into what was in that. in corporate
boardrooms across america the buzz word is meritocracy ideology isn't supposed to matter employees are supposed to be hired judged and promoted based on their skills and ability however the high tech firm known as google seems to be straying from this free market ideal and now employees can be fired if they step away from the liberal social justice party line they recently fired an employee and sent out this memo portions of the memo violate our code of conduct and crossed the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace so what is it that he said what stereotypes was he promoting well here are the fatal words i'm simply stating that the distribution of preferences new pollutes these men and women to in poets you to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don't see equal representation of women in tech and leadership now those are fighting words
as far as some people are concerned and the guy is not going to win any popularity contests to be fair by having a top employee make comments like this google opens itself up to the danger of lawsuits and allegations of discrimination in hiring but is there an ideological criteria for working at google let's take a look at where some of this thought crime logic leads. google won't fix john with unconscious bias training when they keep employing people who are proud of their conscious bias honestly if no one is fired over this google should just admit the commitment to women is window dressing the article is publicly supported by many people internally that's the question how many privately supports agree or subscribe there are many people who google who share this guy's views they do pit performance reviews and interview people they discriminate yes the usa heralds itself as the land of the free and the home of the brave but on certain college campuses in silicon valley and in other parts of the country there's an atmosphere
brewing where if you have the wrong political opinions or cultural views there can be very harsh consequences. r.t. new york i don't perceive the end of the spectrum legal analyst law and journalist michael of it should their thoughts on google's move or the. what kind of idiot would decide. google to basically slam diversity to refer to women in particular. descriptions which might under some. interpretation of human behavior might be considered valid but to others patently offensive what is google supposed to do this fellow who wrote the memo he will never work in a normal corporation or a big corporation ever again in america a what he staggered was basically one interpretation that women were inferior. based upon a variety of reasons and rationale which to him i'm sure makes sense and by the way
the darling of the right right the libertarian right whatever you want to call them the memo in fact most people reporting on it never read it the people criticizing it i read it it was quite sound quite sane it was temperate he even said that nothing in this memo means that we should respect everybody we should respect everybody and then google went around and fired him and showed him that the left does not respect anybody who has independent thought the problem is not that we don't understand what the problem is that this is a pensive to people what google then has to do is address the other workers as it were to me i must fended by this do you endorse this when you don't have actual evidence that you're being the victim of sexism but you want to believe a victim and become a victim then you find evidence whether it's. the russian lawyer at the center of a collusion scandal with donald trump's team has been given more details about the
pressure she said she faces from the president's opponents and the u.s. media last month. was dragged into the big of a claims that russia had to feed in the u.s. election over a meeting with the president's son. we all know her name now and tell us about sky italia vessel in that sky natalia vessel needs sky and italia the sound of sky and natalia vessel night sky i. have to wake up one morning and find you know the focus of the all the high ranking up stream media. i do know what it turns out it was nothing when an exclusive interview airing today on the telly of us need sky has been speaking in depth about how she sees being treated by the mainstream media. my story has nothing to do with politics i did not
really care who would be in power the republicans or democrats i do not care about how the situation is unfolding today mine was a human story it had nothing to do with politics i was really amazed at how the us media machine operates on july eighth the new york times sent me a request for comment they asked me to reply to a list of questions i was surprised by many questions relating to the trump jr meeting i was not even able to recall the exact date because it seemed like a passing meeting it did not lead anywhere there was no outcome i sent a detailed reply to the new york times and surprisingly in their post on july eighth they only publish small extracts from my statement only what they needed now that same piece looks completely different on their website it has been thoroughly revised there is a huge difference from the original article that was published on july eighth to me it looks like an orchestrated story the whole scandal over my meeting with donald
trump jr has been carefully orchestrated and blown out of proportion we have come so close to the truth of how russian budget funds were stolen and that a fair i just happened to be on the front line so to speak and i challenge mr brown to publicly he invented all of this he and nobody else he and his team set it all up it is extremely difficult to find a smarter media manipulator than bill browder for rico appear american for them to see a bill broder emerged as a central player in the scandal between the tali of us live scar and donald trump jr even testify before us senate committee leaks state department e-mails reveal that broder had long been gathering information and personal details about bristol made sky as she believes he then ramped up his public vendetta after losing a lengthy court battle three months ago against a russian owned real estate firm in cyprus which she was right. presenting is the
connection allegedly he accused it of money laundering but the case was settled and the firm was cleared of the russian army but i think that brough to himself as a pawn in someone's hands because this story has proven to be gold for so many it was gold five years ago when it made the very first russia sanctions act happen and it's called now especially now is gold for the present day tabloids for politics and the mass media with its anti trump frenzy. turkey's gearing to open up its largest overseas military base in the african country of somalia but it might not get a warm welcome there from some of the other nations who have already got a presence there as the explains. the horn of africa has seen a surge in foreign military bases china has agreed to open its first there and it's capturing the imagination of film directors on the big screen. you know they say violence never solves anything. this year as far as.
we're going to have a no. one hotspot is djibouti it's currently housing americans japanese and french troops but it's not the only country welcoming foreign militaries turkey is due to open its largest overseas military base in somalia the united arab emirates there in somalia two after they agreed a thirty year lease for a base in the self-proclaimed state of somaliland so the burning question is why why the influx what are they doing there to confront terrorism and piracy working with central command to ensure that the civilian shipping lines have not lax their security to a point that terrorists will not enjoy the food is it helping well the problem still remains peristyle attacks ordinated attack underway in the somali capital of
mogadishu there have in the last month been four or five maybe six. attacks here in the region military spokesperson says if you are a service member has been killed in somalia for the first time a new bloodshed in somalia a car bomb exploding near a police station a recent example saw a luxury cruise ship or to holiday makers to switch off lights and refrain from playing music for ten days due to the threat of pirates in the region so the question is why such a significant increase in military presence will try to answer some of the. blues the world powers attorney the consul to the latest military confrontation. now we're seeing africa again being the center ground for the new verge of proxy war i would call it because all these different countries which are. military bases on the african is a huge worry china is already having a military base its own excuses that it's all to merely wants to protect its own
investment which we know it has the americans have similar bases not to mention the europeans all seem to have a huge stake in wanting to show that they can might show their muscles and their military capabilities against one another and that strength calmness at the expense of every single african nation ultimate of the biggest losers will be every single individual on the african continent because they're with me for least the next ten minutes is this news bulletin continues there's a fresh alert from humanitarian groups and the u.n. over the ever growing number of civilian deaths in yemen following a deadly raid there at the weekend it's among the stories we're covering coming up . in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around. preparation washington washington media the media.
the red cross is again expressing alarm over the number of civilians in yemen being killed in airstrikes the country's been under constant aerial bombardment from the saudi led coalition for more than two years know in a battle against anti-government who's the rebels the medical charity echoes the un's concern over a deadly air strike on saturday that. conflict laws there of being breached it said and that civilians are paying too heavy a price disturbing video emerged of that strike showing the bodies of a family being recovered from the rubble please be warned some of the pictures coming out here are upset. ok leaders say at least nine people died in the attack six children among them the bombing raid was carried out over the two three rebel stronghold of sun and when asked to comment on the strike the saudi coalition replied saying it does not target civilians unless the middle east spokesperson for the red cross talk of the situation is getting worse. what we noticed is just very
disturbing trend put it past months even weeks the military and seem not to make the difference between see the entire good and meijer i get going into the laws of armed conflict parties at war have to meet the utmost efforts to make sure that it got getting legitimated military objectives and not to be indians homes or markets he would also like to remind the audience about the degree but could it be the meat that's going on in yemen right now over one hundred sixty thousand suspected cases close to two thousand dead the largest such. things which is that they consider when it's over so that contradicted the way to sponsor that is being waged at the beginning of each year it was. seen on television it's all were or in newspapers over night in the last months because a lot of attention and we certainly do hope that these orders we accorded to we by
just this could be. the continuous bombardment of yemen has claimed thousands of lives since twenty fifteen and left much of the country in ruins you know. that's one number. that is. another volleys being fired in the increasingly frosty relations between the u.s. and iran now president rouhani is warning donald trump against committing what he calls political suicide but trying to undermine the iran nuclear deal. those who
intend to tear up a nuclear deal have to know that they will tear up the scroll of their own political life by doing that. all terms of course never had a good word to say about the iran nuclear deal and recently there's been reports that his administration is reviewing whether or not withdraw from that agreement all together it is a total and complete catastrophe it's one of the most incompetent contracts but despite the u.s. president's claims there's been little evidence that iran is not complying to run fulfilled its commitments to ship enrich uranium to russia as well as mothballing centrifuges and removing the core from a reactor we've been getting reaction from iranian m.p.'s. well we just got the islamic republic of iran will not be the first to violate the deal the trumpet ministration is trying to push your own to do this but they will not succeed the iranian parliament will issue a statement confirming iran's commitments of the joint comprehensive plan of action
but if the other side violates the deal we will act accordingly worsen we will continue to remain fully compliant then americans have always violated international agreements not just the nuclear agreement trump spoke of many things during his presidential campaign and what he says now is totally different to what he said back then. drooled is coming along as limit republic of iran has announced but quickly resume uranium enrichment if the u.s. violates the joint comprehensive plan of action and would reach a higher grade uranium enrichment obviously. it's not difficult for iran to restart iranian enrichment or high grade remain committed to the nuclear deal and so far the americans are doing the same but if they cease to comply we will change our course and return to where we were before the. race track was broken out over a b.b.c. t.v. cartoon about roman britain that split viewers and pitted academics against one
another too over it is because the program depicts a black high ranking roman soldier. that's what a man needs after working hard for the roman empire pays tear his development empire good question well we're part of it here you cannot rewrite history based on today's values you got to rewrite history the way it works history should be more like other electoral pursuits. outside look at us on the moral domain or outside whatever value system you should describe things the way they were statistically these are historical realities the problem we have is there are certain political interests which are looking to divide communities which are looking to push back the idea and the ideals of multiculturalism that we have different contributing populations different contributing demographics within broader society. to scientists in particular have been trying to see this is the cambridge historian
mary beard on one side insisting the cartoon is portrayed as accurate citing from evidence then as the statistician nassim nicholas taleb is still just early who's not convinced prefer sabir who is a renowned cambridge scholar said the cartoon character was loosely based on a governor of roman britain back then was believed to have been of african descent but nasa tell it says her understanding here is flawed. even if you have a character from far away it is not represent that and you shouldn't brainwash children. plus the other thing is she doesn't seem to understand that people are wrong the mediterranean at that time looks very similar things should be. good fences make good neighbors we should be globalist but let's not be universalists to the point of ignoring people's national identity or think that it's a you but that really if the way you do it goes against that this tickle series. they're all going on there's some breaking news a tree coming in the last couple of minutes to tell you about seems it's coming
