11:02 am
many instant people were killed and injured. this is my nephew who was injured last night by the airstrike he's two brothers were killed. and we contacted a number of humanitarian organizations for their responses this is what human rights watch told us said that the coalition continues to target civilians and refuses to adequately investigate or compensate victims we have back from oxfam to they condemned the attack and called for an investigation meanwhile riyadh says it's taking the reports very seriously and will fully investigate as it has done in the past with similar incidents a saudi led coalition intervened in yemen almost three years ago to fight hoofy rebels riyadh considers them terrorists who oppose the yemeni government the un's
11:03 am
describe the conflict as the worst humanitarian crisis in modern history i was joined last hour by the former head of the red cross in yemen who's just completed his assignment there he described to me just how much more needs to be done. why didn't the family in and there is a problem with a structural collapse of the system in yemen you have problems of water you have problems of sanitation we in the international red cross we try to fix those problems otherwise there would have maybe not be any running water and so on anymore so there is no doubt that what is coming into the country at the moment is not enough and more should be done humanitarian aid is to some extent allowed in but the problem is that more is needed to ensure a decent level of life for the population otherwise the country goes downhill the problem is is one of a structural decay. yemen is not a country like you can find another come hell somewhere with
11:04 am
a little infrastructure in yemen you have a lot of infrastructure and this particular infrastructure is falling to pieces and we international organization including the i.c.r.c. we try to do what we can to support these structures but of course we can only do so much so i do agree with you that bringing back the country. back on its feet will be a long long lasting task that sounds like it's a technical problem that needs dealing with that aid is somehow just a front line is to do with water and food but it's not it's a there are few doctors the ones who are there are being paid the very structures of what the country needs in order to keep rolling and keep facilitating just are very of the moment it's not only one of the most serious crisis that i've seen it's also as you point out one of the most complicated i have seen and i am afraid that this is becoming a feature of some of the conflicts you know some of the conflict where i work at the begin of my career were very poor country there were poor before the war poor doing the war unfortunately poor after the war very little infrastructure so in
11:05 am
a way very little too to reconstruct and the problem was reluctantly should i say simple to deal with here you have something which is extremely complex. you have infrastructures which are falling to pieces up to the point of the whole system we have commissioned a study from world known british school that's going to carry out a full study of the health system in the moment to to get to know where we are and feel like an almost impossible task though because you broke almost a year ago quite passionately about your experience in thai ease the difficulty of getting into certain places just what kind of uphill struggle is there for aid workers once they get together unfortunately we had a tragedy three days ago where one of the staff of the yemen delegation was killed in today's and today i cannot help but think about him his family and and wife and this you know explain is a stark reminder that working in human remains extremely difficult we do it under
11:06 am
extremely difficult circumstances and because of the extremely. tense hard fighting taking place doing this work documenting the cases is something that takes a toll and sometimes takes a toll on the lives of our colleagues. the. problem of anti semitism in europe is becoming more widespread with leaders expressing grave concerns over a rise in attacks against jewish communities the german chancellor's party laid the blame on an influx of arab migrants. noire we have a new phenomenon as we have many refuges among whom there are for example people of arab origin who bring in the other form of anti-semitism into the country unfortunately and to syria does or existed before that. despite chancellor merkel's concerns germany still opening its doors to ten thousand more migrants from north africa and the middle east the leader of one european anti semitism group says more
11:07 am
needs to be done to tackle the problem. saw i hope that worked on get i missed it will be followed by deeds by actions by listen not on new you know as a reply to a comment on the recent event it's not an issue for jews actually it's an issue for europe jews are the first target but when jews will fall the other will follow more and more people will think that they will be able to cure the plague which is islam is with which is the far right they should keep in mind you dale's boss jewish communities are facing similar problems in neighboring france as well where the recalls for parts of the islamic holy book the qur'an to be rendered outdated and obsolete specifically passages that mention the murder and punishment of jews and french politicians and prominent figures are pushing for attitudes to change as part of a manifesto against anti semitism they've signed
11:08 am
a petition denouncing a quote quiet ethnic purging driven by islamist radicalism among the signatories former french president nicolas sarkozy and his wife carla bruni actor gerard depp a doer and former prime minister. we demanded a fight against this democratic failure that is anti semitism becomes a national cause before it's too late. france has the largest jewish community in europe with more than half a million people analysis suggests that there's been a twenty six percent increase in violent incidents against them since twenty seventeen and in many cases it's forcing people to leave france with anti semitism reportedly at its worst in immigrant neighborhoods again the president of the belgian league against anti semitism believes we're seeing a worrying trend. but is very new in this article is that they go to the core of the problem speaking about some verses some sort in the koran calling for
11:09 am
a game jews and christian against the nonbelievers. to change this to make it actually can make it up so late that could be part of the solution it's not a fight between muslims and the most teams it's a fight between openness between tolerance on one side and on the other side you have darkness you have the intolerance you have the eight. president drums pick for secretary of state has been given a green light by the senate foreign relations committee to add although cia director mike pompei as candidacies likely to be approved by the full senate later this week his nominations led to impassioned debate in washington unfortunately i do not believe director promptly as someone who will always prioritize diplomacy over conflict i can't imagine having someone more qualified to be secretary of state it's critically important that the secretary of state be an independent voice
11:10 am
in the white house i am concerned about that he will be speaking for the president when he travels and he's the appropriate person i think is not the right person for this position what nominee would you vote yes for i don't want to vote for people or entire diplomatic to be the nation's chief diplomat. approval by the committee which had been looking on certain was secured by the intervention of the president himself senator rand paul who had opposed by teams candidacies said donald trump and managed to win him around. i have changed my mind i have decided to go and vote for director pompei o because he's assured me that he's learned the lesson and that a poll he's a libertarian has repeatedly criticized pompei as bellicose foreign policy positions but it seems donald trump and his pick for america's top diplomat are in full agreement about what america's role in the world should be. if we embrace the regime change in other nations we can hardly say but this is something that only the u.s. gets to do this is a this is
11:11 am
a unique exceptional country russia is unique but not exceptional. i can't think of a thing that has put america in a better position as a result of this deal. a very real danger. i hardly ever escape a day in the white house without the president asking me about north korea and how it is that the united states is responding to that threat it's very much at the top of his mind they are ever closer to having the capacity to hold america risk with a nuclear weapon at the overall level it is it's a very bad sign that trump keeps surrounding himself with with right wing hawks on foreign policy and now we have. a secretary of state who is not known for being a diplomat is no one to be a hawk on foreign policy and he doesn't come from a diplomatic background he comes you know for
11:12 am
a with more militaristic background he his policies and statements that he said advocated have been very hawkish so this is you know this is very ominous actually. well there are now concerns in some quarters about the direction mike pompei will help push his country if he joins the trumpet ministration particularly in light of its recent military actions ten days ago of course america along with the u.k. and france strikes against the syrian government which critics saw as legally questionable u.s. officials justified the operation by citing legislation known as the authorization for use of military force against terrorists but even that looks set for a rework to give washington greater scope for foreign incursions as jacqueline bouvier explains. military aggression is seemingly always on the table when it comes to the us but the legality of it is questionable one document that gives the american president expansive war powers is the authorization for the use of
11:13 am
military force or. the president is authorized to use all necessary force against those nations organizations or persons he determines planned authorized committed or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on september eleventh two thousand and one in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the us by such nations organizations or persons ever since the past american presidents have used its extremely broad wording for involving the u.s. and conflicts worldwide including donald trump when the u.s. shut down the syrian government bomber washington said gave it the right to combat i saw in the country but given that islamic state didn't officially declare its caliphate until more than a decade after nine eleven does that really fit the bill when it comes to legal military action but it was really dealing with a situation which no longer applies it was very specific in many respects about identifying the causes of the maid for the i.m.f.
11:14 am
and the times to be retaliated against for years senators have been concerned about how open ended the military authorization is and some are saying enough is enough for too long congress has given presidents a blank check to wage war we've let the nine eleven and iraq war authorizations get stretched to justify wars against multiple terrorist groups in over a dozen countries from me jed to the philippines a proposal finally repeals those authorizations and makes congress do its job by weighing in on where when and with who we were at war with the document already eighteen years old son going off to fight might not have been born when it was written however the new version appears even more all encompassing than the original right off the bat it authorizes the president to wage war against a list of groups and a number of countries. plus so-called associated forces if the president determines other groups are threat and linked to previously named enemies they can be targeted to all the president has to do is notify congress on the updated hit list yes
11:15 am
theoretically congress can still vote that down but there's little chance of a majority going against the president he knew a u.m.s. proposal is insufficiently precise it's very good here in the congress so basically giving themselves the authority. to be loosely interpreted to do more or less whatever they like the question is how that would stand up under international law the president has already found a way. around such as i know you have met by you constitutional means to retaliate against threats as you did with in syria just recently the united states is stepping up its ambitions in space but it's not too keen on sharing the final frontier and some on headline news still to come after the break . join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us from the

world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. three trades that have been wrong for five years one is the dollar's going to crash their goal is going to twenty five hundred in the very short term and that three the bond market is going to crash all those three trades if it absolutely wrong for five years and they've taken many people out on a stretcher. seemed wrong. just don't hold. any belief yet to shape out this day comes out today and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.

11:20 am
millions give you facts. airports infrastructure. low. skilled immigration will compete and will win. the u.s. has unveiled its latest splurge in space with a plan to step up security on its satellites not just its own those of its allies to the concern is that potential adverse stories may be capable of hacking or disabling the satellites we were watching hardware as we know is crucial to communication navigation and intelligence gathering all things that would be crucial in the advent of war and it's hope that by sharing this information with its allies that would deter any potential attacks but is just the tip of the iceberg because space warfare is the big defense trend right now which the new black don't take my word for it ask the u.s. the top brass of the air force i cannot think of
11:21 am
a military mission that does not depend on space russia and china are developing capabilities to disable our satellites as the u.s. deems ahead with its space odyssey it's pouring in billions and roping in the likes of space that is a long muskrats proven he can not only deliver but he brings the goods fast but with john king of satellites is one thing the question now is how long will it be before we see actual physical attacks in space where some think it's just a matter of time before american forces find themselves fighting from space were gone that's of whether this is the case or not one thing's for sure the u.s. is deterred. meant to remain a leader in this field the character of warfare has changed we invasion a constellation of nana satellites always the predator never the pre and one person on able to contain his excitement is the us president space is a war fighting domain just like the air and sea
11:22 am
we may even have a space force develop another one space force with the air force one of the space schools we have the army the navy now you might think there's no no war regulation on taking things a step too far in space but in fact there is almost a decade ago one hundred seventy eight countries voted on a u.n. resolution to prevent a space arms race only two countries abstained the u.s. and israel washington also blocked a joint russian chinese effort to ban all weapons in space so perhaps an inkling that the u.s. has long been planning on staking its claim to the stars we talked to physicist and arms control researcher dr mark abroad he thinks that the idea of a space threats is being exaggerated. as to the specifics there the specific threats i think much of this is exaggerated actually. the notion that some other
11:23 am
country is going to attack the united states sort of sitting in a scenario of attack on civilian infrastructure via space i think is quite overblown are mostly some people in congress almost entirely republican and these are the people who have been pushing this idea i don't think the military really wants it leads to an expanded budget could lead to more money for the contractors and i could very well be some of the motivation for people in congress to be pushing this idea i think it's high time that americans woke up to that and realize that we need a different policy we need a policy that would seek to avoid war in space to who i rep is ation is based on a policy didn't gauges proposals for arms control in space. it's just a fifty days before the fee for world cup kicks off the star studded team is traveling nationwide checking out the preparations for the biggest sporting event of the this time legendary goalkeeper peter schmeichel has been seventy eight hundred kilometers east of moscow to katherine but i was for
