report obtained by the media under the freedom of information act shows america has been simulating an invasion of west africa follows an imaginary terrorist attack in new york for explains. this fictional scenario begins in may twenty twenty three there's been a devastating terror attack in new york terrorists detonate truck bombs at either end of the lincoln tunnel that they kill and injure hundreds of americans and just like nine eleven led to the war on terror in the middle east this fictional attack leads to the deployment of u.s. and canadian troops in africa they're fighting african al-qaeda militants and the president promises it'll take just three years according to this fictional script
2:14 pm
but two years into the war and things aren't going well. there is a ninety percent increase in violence in mauritania and mali where the war has quietly spread to as well and that's despite the fact that there's seventy thousand u.s. and canadian troops in the region. now three years later just as the troops are meant to be pulling out according to the president's timeline the war game throws another painfully familiar spanner into the works and that is a fictional general sending a fictional communique saying that he recommends delaying pulling out the troops by one year at least in fact he recommends sending more troops to the region in order to avoid the mission failing entirely so the word quagmire certainly springs to mind it is all pretty reminiscent of the us is other real forays abroad for
2:15 pm
example in afghanistan but the whole point of this war game is to help crime the future generals of the us it was being simulated in the most elite military training academies across the us and it's interesting that the action plays out on the african continent bear in mind the. are already one and a half thousand u.s. troops in africa already is this all a forty and slip about where the pentagon thinks the war on terror is going to shift to next and does a share of the pentagon's stark realism about the way that u.s. military conflicts tend to pan out. from the trans national foundation for peace and future research says that it isn't easy for washington to change its approach to conflicts. what this. illustrates is that the only answer will be him and we are going wheelchair and political evil is for tat violence against violence and this
2:16 pm
is our indy we'll never going to solve the problem of terrorism by killing terrorists it's as stupid as it would be to say eradicate all diseases by killing all patients if you're really struggling the only lets say no mention of power that you how it will. all problems in the world will be seen as something that will be solved by means of hammers and instead of using other tools you were ending up smashing one country after getting hit. four soldiers have been reported dead after a shootout in the russian national guard military compound in the north caucasus the gunman was also killed and up more now from artie's mccarran who joins me in the studio and nikki i know that you know the information is only going to come through in the last hour or so what can you tell us at this point well that an official statement from the national guard we know that
2:17 pm
a first lieutenant fatally wounded four of his fellow officers after he opened fire on them at about four pm local time we understand that the shooter himself was subsequently shot dead by the response unit and this occurred in the russian national guard unit in the chechen republic now details are still emerging as to what might have led the lieutenant to open fire on his fellow servicemen a special response team along with military psychologists are working at the site and a commission has been set up to investigate the matter further just to remind you the national guard is the military police of the russian federation they report directly to the president and this was actually set up by president putin himself in twenty sixteen not so long ago now the national guard is separate to operate separately to the russian armed forces obviously as you said a lot of questions are going to be asked about how this could have happened if we had any incidents. similar to this in the past well actually we have not so long ago at the end of september we saw a similar incident take place in russia's far east but this wasn't in the national
2:18 pm
guard this was in the russian army a twenty three year old dagestan born soldier opened fire on his fellow servicemen and with their. an automatic rifle he killed three and wounded four he then fled and was later dead by an antiterrorism unit now following that incident the defense ministry said there was reason to believe that the daughter had lashed out after suffering from a nervous breakdown. and incident and several people killed thanks for bringing us up to date. we don't need you on the trumps dismissive message to e.u. leaders on iran in a fox news interview the us president also joked europe should just keep making money do you think you're going to get the europeans to support you in terms of sanctions in terms of not selling technology to iran i really like those people i told them just keep making money don't worry about it we don't need you on this you just keep making money. earlier france germany and the u.k.
2:19 pm
issued a joint statement denouncing donald trump's decision not to recertify iran's compliance with the nuclear deal they also said they're concerned about the possible implications and reminded the president that the deal was implemented by all sides not just the united states. president of the 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 we cannot afford as international community as europe for sure to dismantle and nuclear agreement that is working and delivering especially now this is a difficult and in our view dangerous signal the agreement with iran has shown for the first time that it's possible to prevent world through negotiations the destruction of this agreement would mean that others around the world could no longer rely on such treaties it's therefore a danger that goes far beyond iran. two weeks ago donald trump said he wanted his
2:20 pm
country out of the nuclear agreement and announced that he would decertify it congress now has two months in which to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on iran as well as come up with new legislation political analyst shabbir razvi told us that there are other considerations for trouble ahead of tehran. mr trump really you can say whatever he likes but i think the reality is that europeans perhaps maybe nod their heads and agree with mr trump but in reality they would continue to do business with iran because europe is not in a wonderful place at this moment economically therefore any business coming from iran is in the interest of european nations whether it's france germany you care is paid off holland there are a whole host of internal issues that mr trump should be focusing on rather than sort of trying to come out of this particular treaty which is in the interest of
2:21 pm
everyone and as our british minister said that for international and global security people will not accept any other agreement in future if few years later you tear the agreement away and one of the parties say that we no longer want to be part of it so it doesn't create diplomatic relations it doesn't create goodwill on the part of other nations to negotiate with america or other european nations. you may think it's only the authorities that can collect your personal data around compiled terrorist watch lists but the case of all journalists highlights that there are other entities doing this sometimes causing big problems but every day people now imagine that suddenly your bank account is closed and you cannot pay your bills and then in is also the mystery not knowing why or what's wrong with me why why are they closing down my account and not only my personal
2:22 pm
accounts my family accounts and my business accounts all of them were closed. now the activists you just saw speaking now as tommy was mistakenly designated as a terrorist by the database world check which is run by reuters it's a subscription only service providing various files on individuals databases popular with banks as well as the u.k. police so he told us he was shocked when he learned that he'd been placed on a list of terrorists for three other distress because this is not even the united nations it's not our government and living and their democracy like britain you don't expect something like this to happen if you are not a criminal and if there is nothing against you legally then this should not be you should you should not be proscribed you should not be alienated or excluded and the united essential services or after the issue gain publicity voters apologize to mommy uncompensated him for his expenses however this isn't an isolated case the
2:23 pm
company also had to issue an apology for a similar mistake involving u.k. based radio presenter. and there are now concerns that such data collecting and blacklisting could become more entrenched amendments to the data protection act being discussed in parliament top you care fishel even her majesty the queen have been praising the legislation. the new law will ensure that the united kingdom retains its wealth last regime protecting personal data including high standards of data protection and human rights innovation and ensure we can remain confident our data. in the new legislation will retain exemptions from the existing data protection act this effectively allows journalists banks and other groups to collect data without people's consent means that databases like reuters will check won't have to tell you they consider you a crime risk regardless of with whom they share the information over policy expert
2:24 pm
george somewhere lee says the lack of control over handling personal data these ordinary people vulnerable it is completely unacceptable that organizations can collect all manner of very personal data and use them maliciously against. individuals and thereby damage their reputations damage their careers even damage their livelihood how are we able to control. what corporations are doing how are we able to ensure that individuals have some means of recourse against the use of data against them i don't see that within this legislation there is adequate protection for individuals. you know giving them some kind of recourse to challenge this
2:25 pm
the malicious use of such data. is really police have arrested a palestinian man for a post that he made on facebook. how the women posted a picture of himself at work wishing good morning to his friends facebook incorrectly translated his post as attacked them the police got involved he was released shortly afterwards when they realized that been a misunderstanding butin levy a journalist for her reps newspaper says that the actions were illegal. it has nothing to do not only with morally t.v. but also ways. legal it's even legal it's not only immoral it was illegal we just have to mention that he was released of the few hours so the scene didn't develop too far but it is a baby laugh and it's just an indication to the it's you know are the palestinians without any respect to none of their basic rights.
2:26 pm
and this isn't the first time that a palestinian has been in trouble with the law or over remarks made online while activists was arrested after he wrote a facebook post that mocked anti israel arsonists with the hash tag sarcasm in it the police released him after admitting they hadn't understood the sarcasm or the cases that are slightly less clear cut nineteen year old was charged with inciting violence for a post that praised the palestinian uprising against israel and the palestinian poet has been under house arrest since two thousand and fifteen sharing a video of her reading a poem called resist my people resist them she stood awaiting a verdict which could londoner in prison for eight years it in levy once again says that palestinians are often targeted for their political activity. and she went through all these only for poor and she wrote quite
2:27 pm
a unison boy may can tell you and even if it's not that innocent poor him i mean poor me is only a poor there are hundreds of palestinians why what we call what israel is calling it really strange of the tension which is being arrested the result a trial which doesn't exist in a democracy hundreds of them including some members of parliament part of the only because of the political activity so there are political prisoners. that's the dark side of the. city all right up to date the latest news headlines at the top of the . theory here in southern russia in sochi attending the ball by discussion club and
