as economic rivals because he's a businessman and that's the way that he views the world on business terms and he sees ins and outs at an imbalance particularly with europe and he faults europe as having worse trade policies for the u.s. than china jeffrey goldberg in the atlantic this week did it in article he's famous for giving this softball interview he was the one i. apologise where obama told him that his foreign policy was simply don't do stupid stuff stuff yes she did it. well jeffrey goldberg got three different characterizations supposedly from three different anonymous officials within the trumpet ministration of how to divine the trump foreign policy the first one was this no friends no enemies which is a very realistic interpretation. unfortunately trump if he wanted to pursue that i don't think he's had the ability to pursue that as much as he would like one of the
sec it once i think will feed a lot of conspiracy theories that may not be conspiracy theories anymore that permanent destabilisation creates american advantage while that that sums up american foreign policy and military policy and what they've done in the middle east the support of. terrorists you know in libya and syria and so on and the last one sums it up as far as the liberals are concerned we're america be i think of breaking bad everybody i think you know i mean you know. also you could say in a kind of as a extra layer from what we've heard from patrick and from mark is that trump is determined to do everything barack obama did ok everything well you know a strange way yes and interestingly trump not on the standing and. oh all the
terrible things that barack obama did suddenly somebody wonderful you know recently he said that it was thanks to obama that crania became russian he obviously meant that obama was we go soft no he looked at me and my around us supported the coup in ukraine without which would never never have gone back to russia people would never be pushed to vote for that referendum for going back to russia so just you know unintentionally trump told the truth and if we compare trump and the so-called liberals in the us administration trump is more peaceful let me give you. the only real careful there is wrong here you've got twenty seconds to explain that because it is just. the headline from the nation the media response to the meeting with trump betrays a cynical attitude to south korea's security basically the media response was tromp
made concessions he gave up on the exercises he's betrayed the united although i would say very surprised were it to defend him that's part of our to the deal gentlemen i'm going to jump in here we're going to go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue our discussion and some real news stay with r.t. . as he should be. one of the people suffer to be in love because.
forward to retirement is it and there have none removed can you hear me shall i. diminish. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. welcome back to crossfire all things considered i'm peter were discussing some real news.
ok gentlemen let's change gears and go back to patrick in plymouth there is whispers and talking rumors that we could possibly see a trump summit one on one in europe surrounding the meeting the annual meeting of the nato alliance here should the two meet patrick go. well. received logic would say no that would be the equivalent of an apocalypse for the resistance in the united states there could short circuit c.n.n. . and there would be a mass trauma they would need to what i always like rachel maddow you rachel maddow start being paid a half a million dollars for a program ok go ahead you go and. i go with that but i think on suicide more and spring the drought is the advice i would give to the president because he's going off of a well if we're successful meeting with kim jong un in singapore and with his present there are no risks really internationally because you know anything he does going
to be. attacked and put down by the opposition in the united states and but not but not by the international media so maybe there's an opportunity for this president to maybe in the way that ronald reagan jumped over the media to the domestic population in the eighty's that trunk could connect with a portion of the international community globally by doing positive things internationally certainly there's no risk there's a lot of rewards however in terms of legacy in terms of the twenty twenty alexion so is the russia gate burns out and fizzles out people going to be looking at results they're going to be looking deliverables and certainly oh good relations with asian russia's and that's a good point results mark see that's what i have the back of my mind would there be any results other than a photo op you know there was just like there wasn't really any results in north korea other than a photo op i mean the real summits should take place after the details are hashed out by policy wonks compromises are made and then the principals
are brought in to sign on this is a photo op and political theater first and a way it's useful because it buys the u.s. off while north korea and south korea continue the real work of making large deal of apiece. deal and indeed nuclearization deal what trump signed with kim jong il and it was not anywhere near the deal for denuclearization and fact former u.s. presidents have signed far more detail. deals you know actual you know legal contracts for denuclearization with north korea and they've all come to naught i mean we have to think that you know george bill clinton george bush sr signed a deal for denuclearization with north korea that bill clinton ripped up and then
dealing clinton this and it deal with it let's because it makes i don't want to give the impression here this was all the north koreans fault under george bush sr it was congress that was unwilling to fund the deal ok they pulled out from it and then you have the axis of evil under. bush jr so you know they failed for multiple reasons and in the end there is evidence there was a lot of good faith also in the north korean popular let's make sure the claim is this works this was not a deal this was an aspirational declaration look at the way in which is this are the single to promote work towards the right these are not the language this is deals that i want to get back to korea and i want to but i want to ask me here should putin trump meet well i think if they meet the results will be very impressive because i think the momentum has been lost don't you think from wants to do just to stick his thumb into the into this is why democrats shouldn't do you know that they've got. other than a p.r.
opportunity for trump it's not going to be much more because trump is already surrounded by the people like john bolton like mike pale i just can't imagine any real result coming from such a summit that i think the time has been lost you know if trump had met in the beginning. two thousand and seventeen right after he gave all with its promises during his campaign you know that he would improve relations with russia well he would face tremendous a position from the c.n.n. and c.n.n. would be like every day but there would be an opportunity to do something now i think has been lost and i tend to say to put it on check here i want to go back to north korea here i mean i think we all agree i think mark put it perfectly it's aspirational at this point but there is something different here is that donald trump he's now it's all on him it's his ok and he wants to win this ok and perception is everything in his mind here and that's why i tend to think
this process has legs probably most importantly is that the us meaning the people surrounding him let the koreans do the hard work and if that if they could do that and have some kind of breakthrough something could come about though it's not going to be the one hundred percent that the pump ayos in and the boltons want but it will be what the koreans want and i think that trump could agree to that go ahead patrick absolutely agree with mark on the point about letting south korea north korea get on with the business of what they need to do and certainly that's one of the things that will definitely come out of this that's kind of an overarching theme. is going to sort of cancel the meeting then you see kim off to beijing you see closer ties and communication between pyongyang and beijing so as you asian powers can get together they can have you know multilateral discussions without the united states mediating on it and i think this is
a female going to see all around the world united states is no longer perceived as a kind of honest broker for international disputes so people are getting on with the business themselves but what's really important is that in asia appearances mean everything so this image of north and south korea walking over the line holding hands together. both presidents donald trump saluting the north korean general you just opposed that with obama bowing to a saudi king so you know this is a very different sort of bit of optics we're looking at here but it means something to asian people that's what's important and so they they fully expect it don't trump will not remain on any movement forward on these deals so it's a very different kind of expectation you see in europe so asia and europe two totally different cases in terms of how optics is perceived in the public you know you know market me and we have this and we could do a program every week on the impending trade war or the ongoing trade war. what is
trump signaling here i mean he is playing a really hard ball when it comes to these this these tariffs issues is that is is the signal he sending to everyone around the world is that he's serious he's drawn a line in the sand and we can work on these other things but this is actually kind of a weird global confidence building exercise that he's conducting right now is it as much as it is unpleasant for america's trading partners i mean we've we've got headlines in. here we've got foreign policy the west will die so that trump can win vitamin c. we've got several apocalyptic everything in the new york times corey shockey from the international institute of strategic studies the trump doctrine is winning and the world is losing trump i think really is trying to get out from underneath his
handlers and rip the liberal international order up he sees himself whether it's true or not i don't think so but he sees himself as this incredible deal maker of the art of the deal and he sees the us getting the you know the wrong end for four decades now and he wants to rip up and renegotiate the. he wants to rip up nafta completely canada is actually the biggest target of his terrorists poor little poor little through it will have to know that her daughter is getting hit with twelve billion dollars right the e.u. another eight billion china only three billion but he's trying to rip this order up and renegotiate a deal that he sees would be in the us as favor and this is why you know his turning away from the traditional us allies canada the e.u. has got you know the deep state in the us petrified even as he reaches out to some would that have traditionally been you know us adversaries worth we're thinking of
north korea of china of russia and said well i'm a businessman we can do business the transaction. it's transactional it's not again the ideology you know the way you know the way trump has been treating the europeans it's kind of a can do you know parents having forty year old children still living at home it's time to move on ok so you've got an education you're smart you're wealthy now you have to start and you're not going to get anything on that and you're not spending anything on upkeep of the house ok at least the house you're living in so it's time to move out and get on with your lives there was a very good argument in the guardian surprising surprising. treatment of not that. you know the canadians view an office as if it is for ever you know and trump insist it should be expiring in five years and then new terms should be negotiated
that was by george monbiot not going to last trump donald trump was right the rest of the g seven was wrong and that's in the guardian so something is really changing in the world right now i think stuff for the court in the in the foreign affairs if you published an article called the realist world when he had. admits that most of the people in the united states the so-called provincials have been left out you know globalization has been in reach in big companies big urban centers well the fact that china had the same problem no big chinese companies were more eager to invest in africa or in latin america than in mainland china so basically he's not that meeting the fact that this was all about. capitalism and just destroying sometimes so i thought of it so i'm kind of you talking about democracy demon but marx may have been a mistake marxist senator just was mistaken you know because have no model and i think what us have a model and capital has capital just moves around us agree on that last word mark
before we go so the yeah this the big thing is this the pundits were furious with donald trump for sitting down they were furious for some reason that the american flag was flown next to the north koreans like trump is meeting with a brutal dictator u.s. leaders meet with brutal day tears although you don't have a problem with obama and hillary clinton with mohamed bin solvent in the saudi flag so what's the deal here it's pure partisanship it's political theater the ones that were really didn't in all of this where the south koreans they were treated like children in all of this and the argument was all trumpets is abrogating our security guarantees to south korea south koreans don't want that moon julian is in support of this meeting with trump and and he was generously rewarded in the election there's a day after eighty one percent of the south koreans supported this summit ok
eighty eight percent support of the gentleman this is the end of our broadcast version many thanks and i guess here in moscow and implement this is the end of our broadcast segment stay with us for the extended version on our you tube channel see you next time and remember. a sloppy corruption in the u.k. that's what people respect the case for the most corruption about layers of corruption. of global banking corruption and they do a fine job at it but they don't do it here in shantytown. in a world of big partisan. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever
we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. during his years serving is regina's chief executioner jerry would hear inmates
swear they were innocent. when you hear a person going to be sticking out and he was innocent the last syringe to go into his body he's taken out that he was innocent on his last words as last. and give me something that thank about as the execution and it place some doubt there there was one young man in particular washington jr. he was five tell society back then that he was innocent to get down no one really paid no attention . in one thousand nine hundred three earl was arrested in culpepper virginia and brought in for questioning he thought it was for a burglary he had committed these are all in question by different. and we'll use it at our data. and they than no i want to quote
him out of what's called couple. was going to dump and. after intense questioning police officers extracted a confession from her for the brutal rape and stabbing murder of a one thousand year old mother of three. at his trial experts testified that earle had an i.q. of only sixty nine and was extremely suggestible casting doubt on his confession. despite inconclusive evidence the jury found guilty and the judge sentenced him to death. he was taken to mecklenburg supermax prison in virginia. he was scared to death he was tempted he didn't want to come out of so. he's mentally retarded he couldn't read he couldn't write i walked in to the cell and
canadian thing mangled or come see what you want that was earl the whole time he was on the road he was. scared to have it. all as they were for me my mom dead against the a promise once or. almost he was an aide to see the mom would had me. two weeks before earl's date of execution the guards came to transport him to the death house in richmond. a charity mob put him in a way saying handcuffs shackles and they walked him out. literally drug him out and me everybody's banging on the door hear that the casa guards. joe reached out to his caseworker marie deans to see if anything could be done.
i called her in a panic and said i was. out of this god or not but i don't think he did i'll bet this guy knows what's going on when early arrived at the death house he was handed over to jerry i received earl for mecum bear and when he came in i gave a good training to the infirmary he was given a complete physical. at that time we only had. death by electrocution chair so he didn't have a choice you know how do you know you had led to as i went through the cio home of the day but all we got was the he said he would get a new radio from. a live dental. in the daytime of the world alone want me to go out go oh yeah if you know nothing or no way. working day and night joe and marie secured a rare stay of execution marie was convinced that earl had been pressured into
falsely confessing my work was mentally retarded defendants made me know that this was a what we would call a coerced confession whether of course psychologically or for some of us if you kill that woman knows. what you told the police that you did. why did you tell the police that you did. our no no no no you understand then that you were being. accused of a murder. they didn't understand most. new d.n.a. tests proved earl was not the murderer he was moved off death row but he remained in prison for genial law at the time did not allow the introduction of new evidence . jerry heard little about what happened to earl his focus was on preparing for the next execution.
one year after the boston marathon bombing and the morial service brought everyone together for the first time. when we walked. down the road to the site. ron and i and christie stopped at each site and said a prayer. a week later karen and ron united with survivors at the two thousand and fourteen boston marathon. i they cheered their friend celeste in a symbolic run across the finish line. i am angry at what he did and when i see my friends and they struggle and i
see other survivors. i don't want my decision to be based on how angry i get in those instances. that fall judge will tool announced the trial would be held in boston. and we have two choices we can either let him stay alive and have his interaction and have his joys. or put him to die. and have that be the end of it. they don't get to see their little boy playing baseball anymore or reading him a story at night and in this young man is in jail and he's reading stories that he likes he's got books available to him that he enjoys or he meets with his sisters and gets to see pictures of their children growing up and i just don't
think it's fair that they have had their their joys taken away from them and he still is able to experience that. karen decided to attend the trial. i want to be there to see. justice. in philadelphia nearly four years after vicki instils daughter shannon was murdered the police got a lead. in two thousand and would there been a series of assaults started taking place in fort collins colorado they put out a report to police agencies all across the united states. so they sent the from shannon's case to fort collins. the d.n.a. was a match. the suspect was married and employed and therefore space. about
eight o'clock that night twenty third day of april. two thousand and two this fellow and his wife walked into the police station and by midnight that night they had a full confession for the dozen different cases. the men they arrested twenty nine year old troy graves philadelphia's elusive center city rapist. graves was accused of multiple counts of sexual assault and one count of murder in the death of shannon schieber. the prosecutor was district attorney lynn abraham. the prosecutor in the city of philadelphia who is known as a pretty deadly d.a. in other words she put more people on death row then any other prosecutor in pennsylvania and probably any a large number around the country. troy graves was found guilty and the district attorney wanted the death penalty but the she bers did not. it meant they would
have to fight for the life of their daughter's killer we had said to each other and consulted with our very large families that what we do if they ever caught a ball we would stick to our principles and off someone was going to what can put to death we were going to argue for a life without the possibility of parole. the district attorney voiced her disagreement and outrage. the district attorney there became very very upset she became very public with her and with her opinion and she said i don't care what the schieber said the death penalty was the appropriate sentence for their daughter's murder. why would they not want. for vicki in cill the answer was clear. we just can't let this anger is natural human anger and pain overwhelm us and make us so then full and hateful
because it would just over time destroy us and we know that. vicki and sil received piles of hate mail the cues in them of not loving their daughter. you know if you can't stand by your principles when it's difficult they're not your principal. several years past before jerry learned that washington was not guilty. it had to be like fifteen or twenty executions at that girl who was released from death row that i found out that he was he was innocent as it were out that's as close calling you know he came of in days in how to execute as a person. our criminal justice system supposed to be the best in the world. make those mistakes and yet when you see.
