2:01 pm
evening to you thanks for joining us this hour my name is neil harvey this is r.t. international the us president has said that he refuses to certify the iranian nuclear deal little trump made the announcement while explaining his new strategy on iran his decision comes despite the global nuclear watchdog as well as u.s. and european officials all saying that tehran has been keeping its side of the bargain based on the factual record i have put forward i am announcing today that we cannot and will not make this certification. we will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence more terror and the very real
2:02 pm
threat of iran's nuclear breakout. correspondence america. show which way this was going to go rex tillerson suggested the that was going to certify but he didn't what was his explanation for doing so. well president trump has revealed that he is decertifying gear on deal and also imposing new sanctions against tehran but he started off with the usual anti iran sentiment calling it a rogue regime and the leading state sponsor of terrorism saying it had the country had a murderous past and present but in general he did announce that he would be certified clients and that's how he justify to justify that he's going to be leaving it to congress to establish a new conditions on the deal he also announced new sanctions against iran unrelated
2:03 pm
to the nuclear deal imposing sanctions against the islamic revolutionary guard corps or i.r.g.c. for allegedly providing assistance to terrorist groups also said that he expects congress to come up with legislation that will amend the deal and also target iran's ballistic missile program which i must add are only capable of carrying conventional weapons not nuclear he also total terminations if congress and u.s. allies fail to deliver and cut off the regime path to a nuclear weapon but it will be interesting to see how the international community reacts to trump's decision as well as how congress will take this number of. thanks for bringing. in washington now a bit more information on the deal it was how the united states russia for. once united kingdom china germany and of course iran back in two thousand and fifteen but followed nine years of hard work and talks after
2:04 pm
a decade long standoff which many people viewed at the time as being one of the world's most pressing crises the international nuclear watchdog has been monitoring iran's compliance with the deal says that tehran has been keeping its side of the bargain and that includes shipping and rich to rein in to russia also mothballing thousands of centrifuges and removing the core from the reactor at the key facility the u.k. france and germany have expressed concern over the possible consequences of terms move with the top diplomats of the e.u. reminded that it's not up to him to terminate such a milestone international deal president of united states us many posts not this one it is not a bilateral agreement it does not belong to any single country and it is not up to any single country to terminate it it is a multilateral agreement which was unanimously endorsed by the united nations security council resolution twenty two thirty one we cannot afford as international
2:05 pm
community as europe for sure to dismantle and nuclear agreement that is working and delivering especially now. despite all the criticism donald trump has reiterated that the deal could be scrapped at any point in the event we are not able to reach a solution working with congress and our allies then the agreement will be terminated or trying to takes a look now at tom's reasons for pushing for the deal to be broken. so donald trump's got a problem with what's known as iran's nuclear deal ok his not a fan of iran in the first place he's confident it's still a nest for terrorists but is that a good enough reason to basically throw the compromise agreement that required so much diplomatic effort to the floor i mean when it comes to sticking to the deal terms the world agrees to iran is behaving so why the assumption the deals in
2:06 pm
jeopardy because of washington the house foreign affairs committee chairman explains the tehran regime clearly sees itself as a movement one that uses ideology and violence to destabilize its neighbors to threaten others just for the record that was an american official talking about someone else promoting ideology and views using violence in other countries to get what they want isn't that a us thing like the golden rule of their foreign policy that we've seen in action so many times we have to stand united with our allies for peace by acting now we are opposing our values protecting our interests and advancing the cause of peace this nation. in war and in cold war as never permitted the brutal and lawless to set history's course. now as before we will secure our nation
2:07 pm
protect our freedom and help others to find freedom of the right. my fellow americans for nearly seven decades the united states has been the anchor of global security the burdens of leadership are often heavy. but the world's a better place because we have borne them. what a historic background looks like mr royce might as well replace the words to iran regime with the names of american presidents they were the ones who love promoting ideology i.e. democracy elsewhere yeah interventions are exactly what i'm talking about the.
2:08 pm
speak english davies author of blood on our hands the american invasion and destruction of iraq good evening to you nicholas we've heard donald trump say what he wants some why he wants it it's up to congress now do you think they will authorize more sanctions on iran. well. i think trump seems to have already imposed new sanctions on the revolutionary guards in iran it's seems to be some confusion over whether he actually technically designate designating them as
2:09 pm
a chair or asst organization. but those would be new sanctions which would appear to violate j c l a. now. you know that would need a more technical reading or interpretation to determine whether it really does and it remains to be seen how iran will respond to that in terms of congress there's obviously going to be a serious debate in congress because where in the past congress has acted as a rubber stamp for all kinds of sanctions and threatening actions towards iran since the signing of the j.c. peel away the seems to be a little more awareness in congress of how dangerous it can be it could be to get back on a path all of no holds barred mutual
2:10 pm
threats and hostility with iran. we previously heard donald trump during during part of his electioneering say that he thought the iran nuclear deal was a terrible deal for the united states do you think this is donald trump trying to get rid of a deal or is it him trying to prove it for the us. well . i. immediately after the his speech today many people including myself thought that he was in fact certain certifying. that iran was in complied see more or less said that in the speech and the whole world seems to recognize that. now that it seems he is actually decertifying it. it's very hard to say what his what his
2:11 pm
goal is is is he trying to goad iran into taking some action that. you know or go do ron and into possibly saying that j.c. p.o.a.'s deaden on withdrawing from it it's very hard to tell the rest of the world especially the other five partners in the g eight j c p o a seem absolutely committed to maintaining it so. i think we really have have to wait and see what what happens in congress in in a sense i think trump has has just kicked the ball over to over to congress. but he's you know the trita parsi. president of the national iranian american council i wrote a very good article and he made the point that. really it seems the only pressure on trump to. restart u.s.
2:12 pm
hostilities with iran. seems to be coming from iran and saudi arabia and with in terms of u.s. politics it's not really coming from his populist base most of them very riled up about obama care but don't really seem to care very much about this and really the pressure on trump is coming from his his. biggest sponsor is financial sponsors and fundraisers people like sheldon adelson. it with netanyahu the vulture fund manager paul singer and then the founder of home depot bernard marcus who are three of the worth three of trump's biggest fundraisers during the twenty six thousand campaign and they are absolutely all virtually ready for war with iran so so that that that seems to be
2:13 pm
where the pressure is coming from. ok i think we'll wrap things up there we just have another time pre-shared speaking to you don't nicholas nicholas davies author of blood on our hands the american invasion and destruction of iraq. also announced new sanctions against the iranian revolutionary guard corps the revolutionary guards a branch of the country's armed forces currently some one hundred twenty five thousand people serve in it making it iran's most powerful security institution god's presence on land at sea and in the air around base political analyst side mohammad marandi says sanctioning the revolutionary guard will impede the fight against terrorism obviously sanctioning the revolutionary guards is itself an act in support of terrorism major force on the ground alongside the syrians and the russians and the iraqi army and has that stopped isis from taking over damascus
2:14 pm
and. for that matter is the revolutionary guards so the united states is in fact trying to weaken those forces that have been blocking terrorism. washington is building up its troops near russia's western border a move that according to moscow violates a key agreements the country has with nato viger borders the details earlier on. on thursday the un us announced the presence of a second regiment in the already very tense baltic region and that's a move which moscow claims violates a fundamental peace treaty signed between russia and nato years ago and that was designed to and decades of cold war tensions which of course right now are again on the rise and the russian defense ministry spokesperson believes the additional deployment undermines russia's own security by surrounding it with hostile forces in country to the claims of nato and the us only in significance of the troops
2:15 pm
approaching the russian border in fact now it's not a brigade but a u.s. mechanized military division so what's the pentagon's explanation for moving these forces what washington has of course repeatedly referred to russia as a threat that they must protect themselves and their european allies against but the pentagon itself or their spokesperson insists that this division has there's nothing sinister about it that it's a purely defensive attitude we are in in those places to as a defense and to a defensive posture and we're very clear about that and anyone who sees things anything differently. would be wrong now they also went on to say that it's simply a matter of between a new and old regiment but it's worth noting that the route wouldn't take them back to the u.s. wouldn't take them out of the region altogether it would just move them to another eastern european country romania and at this point russia has expressed that they reserve the right of course to also strengthen its defense in the region as well
2:16 pm
you know what is the opinion of poland on all of this while the polish defense minister recently called for more u.s. troops to be deployed to his country in order to quote protect it from external threats and those comments specifically came on the heels of the recent zoppot drills that were conducted with russia and belarus and that came out what those happened last month last month and they caused an unprecedented just absolute opera or in the me. yeah with the routines being the routine maneuver is being attacked as nontransparent with speculation swirling that the russian troops that were brought in for those where they are to stay there are about to do an exercise and be all rouge. it's going to up to one hundred thousand russian troops moving into into the country the great concern is they're not going to leave now that claim is of course completely untrue upon the completion of the drills the russian units return from belarus to their permanent bases so that was completely unfounded but
2:17 pm
so far it looks like it's the u.s. troops that are there to stay. besides the latest deployment of troops the pentagon's budget requests for operations in europe have also been steadily growing as you can see from this chart their requests for next year is nearly eight times higher compared with what they spent last year. civilian casualties from airstrikes in afghanistan are up by more than fifty percent compared with last year that's according to a report by the united nations assistance mission which also says that many women and children are having to live in makeshift shelters or than two hundred sixty six thousand people from thirty provinces in the country of left their homes due to the ongoing war. you know. u.s. forces bombarded everyone including children men and women in our houses have been destroyed under the bombardment children and women were wounded and killed there
2:18 pm
are no houses left. some homes were by islamic state militants and those were hit by u.s. drone strikes. junk fluor from the fight that is ongoing islamic state militants came and started the clashes they wanted to cause a head self that u.s. troops bombed the area so we left and came now houses were destroyed and now we're live in tampa shelters you. hear their problems you by are supplied with fetch water from very far away. the ongoing fight between islamic state militants and afghan and u.s.
2:19 pm
forces means we can't go back to our home. we talked to whistleblower daniel ellsberg to release the pentagon papers detailing america's real motives behind the one nine hundred seventy s. vietnam war he believes that there's much to be exposed about the afghan campaign to. it won't come out unless somebody puts it out i suspect there is a lot of history of that written in cia and white house annals and so forth likewise iraq of course so we do need people like chelsea manning and or snowden at a high level with high access neither of them were at a high level but they had good access as i did and they saw each selected by the way as i did information that we thought would not harm the security united states but which the public needed to know i think by the way very few people were aware that chelsea manning had access to not only top secret information but much higher
2:20 pm
than top secret as its mode and she put out nothing of the level of secret and not even very. sensitive material from that on the assumption that it would not lead to harm to the united states and it did not and you can catch watching the holts on. the full interview with daniel ellsberg. movie on british police have been caught on camera mistreating an eighty five year old woman with a disability it was at a peaceful fracking protest. that's the area unbelievable unbelievable. you mean to tell me you came out the house this morning it's a drug and five year old in a cross the road. so
2:21 pm
there's no way that you could have an officer on the legs at least you know like. you know next time when they saw me drag eight five year old. police released a statement insisting that no complaint has been received over the incident however the pensioner says her shoulders were bruised and that she was so traumatized she struggled to sleep since there's also a massive online backlash against the officers an anti fracking campaigner and number of britain's green party hit out at police brutality similar to the issue of police brutality in the usa police must do their jobs to keep us safe but was a disabled woman that much of a threat awful to see and being dragged like a rag doll over to road by police but they will move her more carefully next time. put people in the uniform give them some authority to cut them some slack and you can quite easily create a monster absolutely shocked to see the video of her been drugged across the road
2:22 pm
she's a peaceful woman as well. preston you rode with her a few times and she will sit and she will talk and she will hold off until frankenstein i've never once seen so of provoke she's passionate. persistent she is still an eighty five year old woman spoke to today and she's exhausted for she said very struggling to sleep since. i'm greedy and upset it's a real shame when the way it's being policed actually takes the attention away from the reason that we're all there. now besides north korea it is generally russians who are blamed for alleged interference in us domestic affairs but insinuations are becoming increasingly farfetched now global gaming sensation poky mungo is being named as one of the meddling tools that moscow used during the u.s. election. ok. ok mine broke far but it did it went far
2:23 pm
beyond facebook twitter you tube well the elaborate claim is that supposedly russia posed this part of the black lives massive movement and used the game to intensify u.s. racial tensions however no attempt was made to explain just how about knights of influence the u.s. election they claim is being mocked both. targeted or highlighting something like this i think is breaking news specifically highlighting any elements go with an investigation without providing any evidence it's actually kind of indicative of how little facts they've had and how much they're trying to continue to paint this election as just one big russian
2:24 pm
conspiracy. you know he takes a closer look at the alleged new tactic by the infamous supposed russian hacker. i think care when you've got fifty and seek i would find it when you hacked e-mail but this time you've gone too far russia you've touched the most fake replace. all my funny bits and friends baby pictures and the only reason i remember my friend's birthday through russian interference in the twenty six thousand election and how it ties to facebook ads that it's a little bit one hundred thousand dollars worth of political ads to a so-called russian troll form yes it was about helping trump and hurting hillary do you want me to believe that a hundred thousand dollars worth of facebook ads could swing the u.s. election trumping hillary's campaign which costs over a billion dollars and then facebook says twenty five percent of those ads run even seen by anybody and then there's google who just last month said it found no such
2:25 pm
russian ads ok google are you sure there's no russian interference on your platform . that it's better you know if russia wants to get better at the nation learned from the best america in one thousand nine hundred ninety six bill clinton indorsed a ten billion dollar loan from the i.m.f. to boris yeltsin which helped to win the kremlin and russian heart why because he was completely incompetent and letting russia fall apart which was exactly why he was the perfect candidate then putin came along and get the hell out of here america this is our country but that's another story if you really want to sway an election russia you could do it the american way learn from the best and how to spend billions. and finally crimea the russian wall giants closer to being linked physically the huge million dollars should the planned bridges just be maneuvered into position is said to be no easy task is
2:26 pm
a high speed look at the and engineering feat.
2:27 pm
you know watching our team to national thing staying with the saving it up to date tell me about the latest news headlines the top of the hour. jim no one. on the water. tomorrow. or not he did not know. all your go to all this move for you. apply for many flips over the years so i know the game inside i. football isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the fun of school it's about the passion
2:28 pm
from the fans it's the age of the super money just kill you know a loner spence. be true to the twenty million. books it's an experience like nothing else will or because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful j. great so well with. the geeks going to. los angeles the city of luxury and fame but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in and it's been a struggle. to get this man from his own response to the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing in order
2:29 pm
to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle but do the authorities accept such to lucian tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution your craft to have someone monitoring the site otherwise it will be a free for all there a better alternative to end the homelessness crisis. seemed wrong but. just don't. get to shape out just because etiquette and it gains from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. choose to look for common ground. up.
