it's highly likely that the syrian regime has continued to use chemical weapons since then and will continue to do so she could have come to parliament on monday to discuss the whole situation instead of launch the strikes she claims there is a legal basis for it i've asked her in a letter i have just sent to this morning to publish in full the legal basis and justification for it we spoke to a number of experts who say the u.k. prime minister didn't ask parliament because she feared she would have lost the vote on taking military action is passing strange that a parliamentary democracy wants to bypass parliament and go to war or only twenty two percent of british people as a hall were in favor of getting involved in the war in syria and if you look at the data beneath a concern a very significant sector of conservative opinion was very unsure indeed so it
may be what it about substantial defections from her own side no war in history will have started with so little support not even a quarter of the population supporting it before a shot is fired there's always been a vote of them. and their leaders that need to buy. the evidence if there isn't a problem. discussed in parliament openly and transparently not. a muslim you know why with the reason there is no evidence of truth values no sorting out which what you call open sources we know who is open source. on law in. the wider world so they couldn't actually take a vote and publish that evidence because it would have looked absolutely ridiculous . italian journalist is living in fear for his life over his work to expose an infamous mafia clan power baron mess he says nothing of bosses have made
numerous death threats against him he is now under round the clock police protection he told us what it's like to live with a price on his head. first i received warnings then letters containing bullets and then anonymous phone calls then one day i was attacked i was assaulted by two hooded men and since then i've had an injured shoulder so. i've now been living under the protection of a caribbean area for four years i have launched fourteen criminal cases against almost thirty mafia bosses these mafia bosses tried to kill me anyway i managed to save myself from an attack thanks to the skill of the carabineers. i know that at the moment there are five mafia clans the woman i live with five men five carabineers are you follow me day and night i live far from my family from my loved ones these five carabineers at the first people i see in the morning and the last i see at night before i'm left alone with my conscience. last week if holly and
investigators obtained a phone conversation between members of a mafia clown the journalist has been investigating all it one of them allegedly tells his son to bear a messy investigators believe there was an imminent assassination plans to get rid of the troublesome reporter. many journalists do not publish names or photos of mafia bosses many of my colleagues do not do investigative journalism which i do i publish names and surnames i publish photos and above all i try to follow their business schemes their money this is a business worth billions not millions we're talking about billions of euros so you journalist has a fundamental role telling the truth talking to people and doing investigative journalism. thank you. i don't have all been so we thought the
muffy was defeated we thought this because the bombings were over because arrests were made we did not understand the math here was radically changing it's infiltrated the state and public bodies something the matter is just an italian problem but unfortunately that's not true the mafia has spread from italy to europe and the world. is less than two months now till the twenty eighteen world cup kicks off in russia and preparations are almost complete in the host cities as anticipation is growing the twenty eighteen feet the world cup is also going to see the first russian referee to oversee games in twelve it is a camera saw the spoke to us about his excitement at being part of the competition . you might see those pictures i can't even describe my emotions because the shortlist process started four years ago and it's been a long wait for us so when we found out our brigade had been chosen it was just
tiredness and relief how you would feel after finishing a very difficult task with a. thank you for your as a rule at tournaments like this one your second wind kicks in and there are no thoughts that millions of people are watching and if you're thinking about it then you will definitely fail our work is to walk out and get into the zone which you. fractious would use it all starts when you get inside football life as a referee should players start to probe you especially young ones just checking how you behave in certain tense moments if you position yourself in the right way you won't have any problems during the game probably watching you and we have our own star studded lineup for the football extravaganza so as a marine stan collymore and peter schmeichel are all on the r.t.c. peter has already been out the host cities his last stop was set on skype about seven hundred kilometers east of moscow here's his report.
states have a city of philadelphia we'll bring you that story and more off the short break. seem wrong. to shape our. attic. and in. the trail. find themselves worlds apart. to look for common ground. i would normally manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling class is protect themselves. with the same.
gifts and be the one person. nor the routes to. the. welcome back our protests have erupted in the u.s. city of philadelphia after the arrest of two black men in a starbucks cafe demonstrators gathered to demand the manager was fired for his part in the incident police were called after they refused to leave the cafe saying they were waiting for friends there the manager said the men attempted to use the bathroom but didn't order anything they were subsequently arrested and handcuffed and removed from the premises the whole incident was captured on video.
while starbucks has issued an apology it's the ok i've enjoyed as soon as short that starbucks stuns the game's discrimination involved to meet the men personally to offer an apology the incident has sparked outrage on the internet however with some saying words are just not enough. sorry apology not accepted until you file all that stuff and make the person apologize in person to them you ain't one step in your place so the c.e.o. of starbucks apologized to these men the real question is why hasn't the employee who called the cops been fired yet i think all of us white folks should go to a starbucks today used to basser and sit at all duty bowls without ordering anything there were other patrons of the starbucks there were just sitting there who hadn't ordered anything you know they were engaged in the identical conduct and they were about arrested and forced to face the indignity of being dragged out of a place in handcuffs the idea that they would even hold these men for eight hours
when it was quite obvious that they had done nothing wrong you know i really speaks to something important the police have a responsibility not just to do whatever a manager says for them to do they have a responsibility to do an independent investigation of their own and they clearly didn't do that they walked in they found two men who were sitting at a table doing nothing disturbing whatsoever and they. chose to arrest those men anyway. idea of german rappers have sparked outrage in the country after using anti-semitic lyrics in their songs and even winning an award for its controversial lyrics include comparisons to auschwitz prisoners and hints as another holocaust but despite that iraq has won the best hip hop album prize in germany's top music awards last week i was off to their latest works for more than two hundred thousand copies of the initially defending their decision organizers of
the award have now backtracked germany's foreign minister called the award repugnant while many prominent germans have added to the condom can the nation a group of holocaust survivors also voice their outrage political commentator amir oren says artists should not use freedom of expression as a free pass to say anything. of course freedom of expression is a blessing thing we shouldn't restrict the freedom of the artist or decree aither to break any old mold because this is how men kind of progress us but having said this there are a few sacrifices things we should be kept as such and of course for israelis or for jews all over and for people of conscience regardless of their faith or nationality the holocaust shouldn't be broached
in such. a cheap manner. and our team is continuing its romanov's one hundred project we have thousands of photos of russia's lost world family to take you back to the last decades of imperial russia is now available on our social media platforms and so to line the seventeenth the hundredth anniversary of the romanovs execution well let's now dive into the family's life as we recreate a moment in one of the photographs. thank you. thank you thank you.
i'd like for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside guides. football isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money joe killian erroneous and spending you're getting twenty million and one player. it's an experience like nothing else on here because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy was great so will more chance for. the base.
the philippine city of angeles when the u.s. military moved out the six tourists moved in. and now a whole generation of fatherless children is growing up here. hi dad and within a one month old couple simple than an eagle. eye but day is a gem like you like us and i'm the only. son. that isn't the first time the t.v. crew you see or think takes you were no don't answer is thrown back now and that if . that's it the better you want my god found it. a victory you can take the guillotine above it you can take a little girl. no woman you know. oh i love you like i did it you did it.
leader tereza made bombs targets just hours before the o.p.c. w. goes into syria to defacto assess british culpability for the alleged chemical attack in duma we look at the wider issues coming up in the show. president outside victorious against the islamists who would wish to do nato capitals home under attack for alleged w m d can you gave minority government leader to raise a may really take britain to war and u.s. veteran and virginia state senator dick black tells us why a u.s. attack on syria is the wrong thing to do plus with more threats of war from washington a variation on what einstein said about not knowing which weapons would be used in world war three but that world will fall will be fought with sticks and stones we investigate lethal autonomous weapons all the support coming up in today's episode of going underground but first to more of the united nations security council receives a briefing on british backed fighting in the poorest country in the middle east
yemen where the u.k. arms and trains war plane pilots allegedly threatening twenty million people in a conflict that has killed thousands trace them a recently lobbied to sell even more killing machines to saudi arabia which is. bombing the children of yemen the two countries have moved a step closer towards completing a multi billion euros arms deal they've signed a letter of intent to finalize talks on an order for forty eight typhoon planes. systems typhoons that are being vigorously marketed by the u.k. typhoon is the proven multiple aircraft in service the current generation of fighter aircraft in service with five air forces across europe and nato it really is the backbone of european and nato air power not that the use of nato air power always kills every child in airstrikes on yemen the irony a lot about bizarro. a little. while as human alive.
and as sudden as one i was on the top of this one oh yeah. and i would then i'm going to penicillin. we have a style of and because. a lot of it on the level on it. so how does more is not always enough the. desirable and. it was some of that. but how many in britain will survive asymmetric warfare for british islam is returning from their failures in syria and if donald trump's reaction to a russian diplomat threatening de facto retaliation against u.k. and u.s. military assets in the mediterranean we're now back to this the. if you have taken the advice we've been giving you recently you will by now have chosen your room and gathered your materials in
a refuge. the time has now come to make everything ready for you and your family in case some air attack happens joining me now to talk about being prepared for the consequences of any u.s. a russia war. when editor in chief of royal your thanks out of coming back on let's just start with whether chemical weapons allegations have become the political weapon of choice for western or to excuse western expansionism if you remember saddam hussein used these chemical weapons he wasn't an american and the british side of that time nobody said a single word about him so it tells you it is a political weapon the use it against the people who are against them but if you are in their camp you are immune from this political weapon and that is what is happening in syria now look at they are accusing russia of using this why should he
use it for example he is actually he was winning the war there. or the armed militia are leaving because donald trump is very unpopular in a european nations but arguably could he actually be being very clever here trying to triangulate between his base that voted him in as a. peacenik who didn't want western interventions and people like john bolton there is national security advisor in the so-called deep state that is part of makes a lot of money out of wars i see it differently i believe he lost the plot in syria he is defeated completely this man actually talking. through his calculation his calculator and judging from you know the profits and losses so this is this is how he actually behave and how he runs his policies you remember he received that chinese president about three months ago or
four months ago as a hero and he was praising him and praising his government praising his country for doing trades with the united now. you know he changed the whole thing he's he wants to impose about a hundred billion doxes on the jail in china made a degree of concession isn't this is big art of the deal making talk whether it be on trade whether it be on all out war in the middle east you know the chinese are very wise and they are very clever they know he is like a raging bull and they don't want actually to enter a trade war with the biggest customer. talking about chinese exports to the american working class is arguably the would want to get back there maybe to britain and britain strange role in here do you think britain is stoking this
conflict up in the u.k. of course being a key backer of the white helmet linked to islamists in syria we know those people are part of the armed groups in syria and there are financed by the west in a way or another. for britain actually to go. bang the drums of war i think this is very serious but we haven't forgotten the largesse of mass destruction in iraq we haven't forgotten also other lies about using chemical weapons in syria it is you know we need proof ok this country is supposed to be an actual country so they almost literally us in the third world that look you have to be rational you have to look for proof you have to document the document your evidence and before your issuing any judgment the same thing about the poisoning of this question agent russian spike or decision agent. ok so
look what happened you know whose daughter is with me she was actually cleared from any any problems health problems and she's safe and he's probably saying without even this man. being killed by this poison you know they kicked out one hundred and fifty russian diplomats so this is this rational diplomatic boost for example without evidence even without listening to the british which said clearly that this this this nerves guys is not coming from russia there are sixteen countries and the word on who produce these kind of poison so i don't know there is any i believe i believe actually is committing a grave mistake she is a problem because of bricks and definitely she would like to hurt the tension from her internal problems and she didn't go to the parliament actually to consult with
them about her moves whether toward peace or war. this week but it is just i mean without getting too conspiratorial and i'm sure the government does deny this is a means to distract the public away from drugs and there are british islam is the rebel groups in syria. many of whom may wish to do us harm here in this country what this at least stop them from coming to this country of the war is fordable in syria you know in the beginning of the crisis in syria who supported that able to encourage the british to go and fight muslim bridges to go and fight in syria it was david come in and it was sad to see you know they encouraged them to go there and actually they knew they were financed by you know arab countries like saudi arabia like qatar who are very close to with. this crisis and adopting the. aim of this you know. to topple bashar assad from his presidential palace so we
know that so definitely those people now there is going to say it did not actually disappear completely ok made being in the islamic state or isis was defeated over the ground but now there are. going underground with that a marquee american spreading in the middle east they could come back any time you could come back could come back in iraq they come back they are already there in libya they are already in afghanistan so who created this crisis because the west actually they want to topple assad on the double qaddafi they want to topple ali abdullah saleh in yemen so they created failed states and instability in the whole of the middle east as british foreign policy become really in a jug of saudi and israeli foreign policy i but if yes i believe you know the foreign policy of britain is many pleated by the israeli first by the money of the gulf states to be honest it's it is to create havoc instability
in the middle east so they can actually milk these weaker or weak states in the gulf region in particular who are fully dependent on the west for protection when president said we must actually be paid for the protection of those people we are protecting them they cannot survive for weeks without us of course with syria as you said as it won the war no matter what happens it's even against the law as a four hundred units or whatever it is this is the death throes of the these kinds of nato powers doing this in the middle east because they're getting some observers being seen as aggressively desperate as they cope with their own populations obviously austerity. their western economic crisis i believe that american will lose and they will be in trouble there are two thousand american troops in syria
and there are six thousand troops in iraq itself there are a lot of signs of a lot of reports that they will be work for against these troops in syria and iraq . but we lay at the foreign minister advisor of the ground more ship of iran the grand ayatollah he was in syria and he said clearly that we are going to five the american troops on syria and iraq and also he said clearly we are going to actually recapture it clip which is the biggest city in the north west of syria we are going to capture it and bring it to the syrian sovereign government so this is this is how the situation is developing now and i believe when. there isn't time said we are supposed to pull
out all our troops from syria i believe he was correct he was rational here for the first time because if they stay there they will face the guerrilla war the same thing we did when the occupied iraq. thank you after the break. we ask us veteran and virginia state senator dick black what has got into donald trump such a vocal opponent of war on syria before he became president and how easy would it be for peace activists to hack fully autonomous nato killing machines now being prepared for the battlefields all the twenty first century old of them all going to up going underground.
for all twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question and by the way he's going to be our coach . guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star and the huge amount of pressure to come out you have to be the center of the beach but probably would you. go all the great britain if you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get the ball going let's go. alone. and i'm really happy to join the team for the two thousand and three in the world cup in russia. the special one come on both appreciate. just like the review the aussie teams the latest edition to make it up as we go.
