on his 1st trip to russia the u.s. secretary of state might compel arrives for talks with his counterpart sergei lavrov finding the long lasting suspicions between the 2 countries. but as little brand a u.s. police raid on a former embassy in washington d.c. a violation of international law activists in the compound saying they are trying to prevent an illegal takeover a u.s. military school publishes a decades long history of washington's intervention in other countries by some as a guide. and a saudi arabian ship is counted by protests in european courts failing to pick up

in arms to liberate the activists say could be used to kill civilians in yemen. you're watching aren't international bringing you your live news update from our studio here and moscow welcome to the program. ready to fight suspicion and prejudice those were the words of russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov as he welcomed the u.s. secretary of state to the black sea resort city of sochi during my company's 1st official visit to the country both sides seem ready to move u.s. russia relations a step forward with more details on the meeting here's more on gusta. relations between russia and the united states as is well know the best there's a whole hoost of issues to get through and coming here i compare was urged by senior democrats busy congressman congresspersons to act tough to throw
11:02 am
his weight around and show the russians what's what fortunately he seems to be acting a little more grown up a little more constructive judging by the opening comments on pretty much most of the external mccarthy we see there are certain suspicions and prejudice from both sides but it's not a win win scenario for us that mutual mistrust hinders both u.s. and russian security and causes concern around the globe so it's time for a new and more responsible approach to our relations and mutual perception we're ready to do that if i us colleagues show reciprocation towards that i'm here today because president trump is committed to improving this relationship as as i think he said we have differences we each country will protect its own interest look out for its own interests of its people. but it's not it's not just that we're adversaries on every issue there's
11:03 am
a whole host of issues that russia and the united states must talk about nuclear arms control nonproliferation proliferation fighting crime fighting terrorism things that they can only really do together in order to be successful of course now we have venezuela situation there also topping that list of things a critical united states having just redid the venezuelan embassy we had the a coup attempt but the coup attempt a few weeks back on the 30th of april by quango i do with the president that the united states recognizes the leaders that russia recognizes. his government still in power nobody really supported that. and that has been a sticking point in relations between russia and the united states iran also at the top of that list we are an incredibly dangerous situation now developing in the persian gulf militant rhetoric flying around threats and counter threats we had
11:04 am
might compare changes. and number of times over the last several weeks because of the rainy and she 1st said to meet with angela merkel in berlin he canceled that in order to fly to iraq and condemn condemn and threaten iran there then he canceled the trip to moscow in order to go to europe to try to convince europeans to pull back out of the iranian nuclear deal to support the united states as a tool of paedos that deal where he was by all appearances unsuccessful europeans coming out very neutral urging the united states to stop trying to destroy the busy iranian nuclear deal urging the arabians to abide by their nuclear commitments so there's there's a there's a lot at stake and the situation really is on the knife's edge everybody urging including russians urging calm urging the iranians also to abide by their
11:05 am
commitments they've announced that they're going to that they've already pulled out of the agreement that they sell off excess heavy wood to excess. uranium enriched uranium again as i say this is this is a lot to talk about today but this cautious optimism because nobody's expecting a major breakthrough yet there is cautious optimism that at least something will be achieved here in sochi. the talks come soon after the u.s. deployed an aircraft carrier laden with 40 combat planes into iran's regional waters or president trump also fired another warning at tehran. we'll see what happens 9 with iran if they do anything it will be a very bad mistake if they do anything i'm hearing little stories about iran if they do anything they will suffer greatly we'll see what happens with the run. and there appears to be substance to the threats a number of b. 52 bombers known as strata fortresses and capable of delivering nuclear weapons
11:06 am
were deployed to the region they were already used in the 1st u.s. mission there washington says it will defend american forces along with its interests in the region from clear indications of threats coming from the iranian government this all comes amid media reports claiming the trumpet ministration has drawn up plans to send 120000 troops to the middle east that's in the event iran attacks american forces or starts working on nuclear weapons. we cross a line down to political analyst family for more on this now lavrov has about to confront pump a 0 over the iranian crisis which moscow says washington created by believing the deal will that work with the secretary of state. i don't think so i think trump is going to take a hard line on iran because his our key allies here are israel and saudi arabia and he seems to have decided the really those 2 are more important than the
11:07 am
europeans who aren't happy but really when push comes to shove nothing very much comes from europe does it you know those words but very little in the way of action and also remember he's antagonizing china so the situation is very fluid russia has got options here and sergio of rob is a very very respected diplomat and he's aware that you know russia's connections with china and therefore and don't know wine with iran or things that he can trade on in discussions of my own pail so we'll have to see but i think there ryan is a difficult sticking point because really trump and the americans are ratcheting it up with this deployment with allegations that are raining commandos have been attacking ships in the straits of hormuz really you get the feeling that that tension is rising and rising and rising and i doubt that this meeting in sochi unfortunately is going to cool things down in the streets straits of hormuz at the moment you talk about the tension being ratcheted up but russia lays the blame for
11:08 am
the iran crisis squarely at america's feet do you agree with that. well america pulled those of the deal on you can and then you could you could deal with iran. they did so without really. any relations with iran thinking about that they obviously decided to confront iran cheered on by israel cheered on by saudi arabia that spurned the europeans are very unhappy with this an idiot russia who've been begging them to really stick by that deal unclear where they've not trump has no intention of going back to steel and now we see iran itself. saying it's not going to stand by some of the closes the greed in that deals it's a serious situation and we have to realize inside iran itself that the threat from america given america's own record in a country in the region that the nationalist rhetoric plays well in iran because of that you american legacy so in
11:09 am
a way you know both sides can start upping the ante no it's obviously playing well for trump i think the whole i think he's a supporter cheered by this as the are with a growing rift with china and in iran of course the rhetoric as well as i think goes down well so it's a dangerous situation and i think sergio aguero is should be in to listen to what he says we need to really calm things down you know earlier we heard both lavrov and pompei say that they want to improve ties between the 2 countries but a number of democrats are itching pompei or to take a hard line with russia over meddling let's take a quick listen to what they've been saying. secretary of state can play a must make clear that the coast of trying to interfere with american elections will be to hear secretary of state bumpier must deliver a shot across the bow to putin and any other foreign adversity that would dare think about trying to influence our elections for the sake of our national security i implore the administration not to return to business as usual with russia in the
11:10 am
wake of the miller report this is not a time for reset with the russian federation the u.s. must be firm and abide by its national security commitments to the american people and our allies i think pompei is going to have those comments on his mind today during these talks. not particularly because i think most of those comments of from supporters of failed presidential candidate hillary clinton who doesn't seem to grasp that she lost and doesn't seem to grasp that she was because she was seen in the minds of so many americans as being part of the elite a self-serving elite and trump was able to play in an election campaign so i don't think that's going to put here i think more importantly and this is been a pressure on the trump trump administration is the security apparatus inside america and the defense section of the army the military want to continue this cold war with russia and they sometimes have got their way and that clash with trumps and compares those statements they wish and relations with russia so what is going to happen is pompey are going to deliver and this this spike the pentagon despite
11:11 am
the hillary clinton supporters are really going to bend to pressure particularly for the military and the pentagon we shall wait wait and see but i think as well as something else that to be said here i mean you know this isn't a thumper question because in pale and sergio of whatever it is the much more accomplished diplomat who's seen of so many opponents and i think the americans would do well to listen to what he's saying and not dismiss it out of hand and that is something which i think is really important here if here is a hand of friendship i would recommend and hope that after a hand of friendship is taken. political analyst chris bambery thank you for your time and your comments. iran is not the only country washington has turned up the heat on. and looks at some of the governments on the receiving end of u.s. special operations. be it nom ukraine yugoslavia libya one of these countries have
11:12 am
in common well you guessed it uncle sam has been involved the u.s. central command recently published a study that's now being dubbed the pentagon's scholars guide to overthrowing governments the joint special operations university published its study they looked into research of special forces operations of the u.s. military across the planet from 1941 to 2003 now the joint special operations university is an entire academic institution dedicated to studying the art of war here's what their research found that the report divines u.s. special ops into 3 categories disruption coersion and regime change 68 percent of the operations were disruptive only non-disruptive cases took up 32 percent they were divided between coersion and regime change sure the highlighted cases of the 3 categories.
11:13 am
because. the. $47.00 instances were study disruptive actions failed just less than half the time and attempts to strong arm foreign governments were more successful working in 3 fourths of instances when it comes to overthrow. governments u.s. special ops are batting a $23.00 out of $47.00 attempted overthrow is now the only overthrow conducted during war time was successful that's the war in afghanistan in 2001 but is success really the right way to describe the conditions facing those countries now the most shocking statements come at the end of the report where the authors say that these
11:14 am
kind of operations will probably never stop these clandestine interventions subrange from support to civil resistance movements to convert paramilitary operations to large unconventional warfare efforts in support of conventional military campaigns even presidents who prides their election looked upon such activity would disfavor found themselves compelled to use it after taking office this is a function of ideology it's a function of germany has nothing to do with cost and it's not simply nothing to do with the interest of the american people and the american people made them will be cynical but they are suffering quite astonishing levels of poverty and misery ation and mass and millions over 40000000 in poverty and health care rising crame poor days ation along racial lines we know that the us mainstream media is notoriously lacking in deep analysis doesn't ice deception questions and indeed demanded respects it is no longer there to hold the powerful in the government to account on
11:15 am
behalf of the people but to hold the people to account on behalf of the powerful in the government and us this is to do with a small quantity of new york or fanatics in washington who are no in control of trumps foreign policy and of course olivia's of and histories that benefit the military industrial complex so there is no money to be spirit when it comes to trying to effect these had you monica adventures. and it appears the american military is sense another opportunity to flex his interventionist muscle in the latin american country of venezuela the venezuelan opposition's representative in the u.s. has sent a letter to the u.s. army requesting a meeting for strategic and operational planning caracas has burned in the move an invitation to plot a military intervention and venezuela. the venezuelan government has also condemned a police raid on its former embassy in washington d.c. as a violation of international law officers trying to expel activists who claim they're defending the mission from illegal seizure they argue that the u.s.
11:16 am
is preventing cruxes diplomats from working at the compound and trying to replace them with illegitimate opposition representatives police arrived at the compound and issued an eviction order to the activists most of them left after that but 4 of them stayed inside arguing that officers had failed to present an official arrest warrant. me. the rest more generally. they will probably try to get it tomorrow the protesters have spent more than a month at the embassy the u.s. ordered diplomats serving nicolas maduro government to leave the site as it recognizes opposition leader. as venezuela's legitimate president days before the police raid the authorities cut the water to the embassy before handing protestors and eviction notice in person police posted one on the embassies doors it stated that the u.s. recognizes people as venezuela's representatives and that the activists must leave
11:17 am
investigative journalist max blumenthal thinks u.s. authorities are being overly aggressive. well there are poor and deceit protectors still inside they refused to leave after 3 others left today a notice was placed on the door written in verdad signed by no one which claimed that. carlos vecchio were the judum that represented. venezuelan embassy but it wasn't clear this was posted by any federal authorities secret service entered the embassy everyone thought they were going to arrest those inside and instead they left closed the door behind them and those 4 embassy protectors are still there so there could be an embassy protection agreement between venezuela's government and a friendly country which would allow that country to move in as a custodian for the embassy and allow switzerland to take over the u.s. embassy in caracas and this would mean a deescalation of the conflict and the possible nail in the coffin to for go i go i
11:18 am
don't know if that's going to take place i know there are negotiations underway but it's very telling that the embassy protectors were allowed to stay inside for the federal authorities to enter venezuelans embassy is a violation of the vienna convention zour article $22.00 and it is it could be considered an act of war. at least 5 protesters and a police officer have reportedly been killed and the sudanese capital when an unidentified gunman opened fire it comes amid an ongoing sit in protests outside the country's military headquarters in raleigh followed the removal last month of president omar al bashir the protesters are demanding those who took power by force step down and create a civilian government earlier at the ruling military council and protest leaders declare they have reached an agreement to form a transitional government the council claimed it would remain in power for up to 2 years. still to come we've killer giant monsanto is accused of spying on prominent

11:28 am
no charlie that's it these guys rock and they're rocking new york city this week now we've got an amazing situation developing here in america one of our politicians as it openly admitted in congress that the u.s. dollar is that threat. i do want to again point out you'll hear some peeping in the background that's because they're like setting up lights in the whole venue so we're like so exclusive here the keiser report we're allowed in before everybody else gets here by brad sherman he's a congressman from california who represents los angeles and i have a little clip of him here i look for colleagues to join with me in introducing a bill to outlaw cryptocurrency. purchases by americans so that we nip this in the bud in part because. of our international power comes from the fact that the dollars the standard unit.

international finance in transactions clearing through the new york fed is critical for major oil and other transactions and it is the announced purpose of the supporters of group the currency to take that power away from us to put us in a position where the most significant situations we have on iran for example would become irrelevant yeah i mean 5 years from now people going to look back at this speech as really the beginning of the end of the u.s. empire and the u.s. dollar because up until at this as rep brad sherman says that up until now there's never ever been a way to defeat the u.s. dollar and he said openly that the big point is the way to defeat the u.s. dollar so this means a lot of different things unpacked this but obviously for countries like russia china and others if you want to usurp the u.s. dollar by going as we've been saying now for years put that into your strategic reserve as much as you possibly can and you would diminish the role of the dollar
11:30 am
