2:01 am
just another monday morning here in moscow my name is kevin owen this is art international welcome to the program 30 minutes of world news live from us starting with this the washington's hans again pulling all options on the table with iran including military action u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o reiterated his belief in terrans direct involvement into an attack on oil tankers in the gulf. american people should rest assured we have high confidence with respect to who conducted these attacks as well as half a dozen other attacks throughout the world over the past 40 days we are confident that we can take a set of actions that can restore deterrence which is our mission so you say a full range of options does that include a military response force. and in turn very early denied any involvement branding america's statements sabotaged diplomacy the united states earlier released what it claims to be evidence of iran having a hand in the attack including
2:02 am
a video which allegedly shows the rain in crew removing an unexploded mine from one of those tankers and it seems america's closest allies in the region right now are on the same page over it to saudi arabia's crown prince says he's ready to deal with any threat posed by iran and israel is also joined the chorus with the country's prime minister praising washington's firm stance towards to ran during an opening ceremony of a new jewish settlement named after donald trump. sometimes even obvious things must be said out loud and does it in his current firm stance against iran's aggression in the gulf of a man in the persian gulf as well as in the region in general but amid the current saber rattling russia has warned the u.s. against finger pointing moscow cited the invasion of iraq in 2003 when false evidence was used to justify military action next this morning is that he goes down off explains washington may once again be trying to find
2:03 am
a pretext to wage war. donald trump is not a president known for policy consistency but one thing no critic can take away from him is his apparent a burning hatred for iran but everywhere we go in the middle east it's a rare ran around spread death destruction and chaos behind every problem is iran a very dangerous player very bad player iran's leaders so this. death. and destruction and with guys like might bump aoe and john bolton pushing trying to squeeze that trigger it seems a war could be looming but thank god it can be just the president's cool thing like this needs congress' approval on paper except that really it doesn't we were absolutely presented with a full formal presentation on how the 2001. might authorize war on iran yes i'm certain i'm sorry sir secretary powell pale said it with his own words
2:04 am
he did not say i want to go to iran and i'm going to use 2001 he referenced a relationship. between iran and al qaeda there's a convenient loophole that can help them and it's something called a us a us stands for authorization for use of military force against terrorists a long name but basically it allows the us to attack any country that has ties to al qaida this has already been used in iraq and afghanistan and if you look hard enough terrorists can be found everywhere in the past few months iran has been turning into a more and more of an al qaeda haven according to washington for 40 years the islamic republic's revolutionary guard corps has actively engaged in terrorism the world's leading state sponsor of terrorists of the really regimes use of terrorism as a tool of statecraft makes it fundamentally different from any other government they're a nation of terror and we will put up with it all aboard the militaristic bandwagon
2:05 am
it is the best chance the hawks and capitol hill have had in years up until now would trump has been more or less true to his promise to curb his country's military adventurism being all bark and no bite as a candidate for president. i loudly pledged a new approach. great nations do not fight endless wars. and while there is literally more verifiable evidence that would allow saudi arabia to be bombed into oblivion and have the saudi other good guys in washington's playbook the of course outright denial such claims of involvement with extremists there america's greatest ally in the gulf which also happens just like trump to hate iran with a passion starting a war with iran would be unlike any other war that the united states has engaged in
2:06 am
before abroad that would be a conflict that in some ways my be worse than vietnam it certainly won't be iraq the problem is that point and bolton are in charge of foreign policy i don't think trump really has the details in hand it's like he's a rider on the horse but he doesn't have the reins and of course they will use this tool the. authorization with the congress based on terrorism because they will present whatever iran does in the persian gulf or elsewhere as an act of terrorism that is the best way these days to get americans behind. and attack. from repeatedly claimed he doesn't want to go to war with iran people in new york what they thought of a possibility of potential military action. can you imagine a situation where it would be you would be in support of
2:07 am
a war with iran. it was after one was another war and then another war then another you know because other we. open assassinations and bombing other people and we knew about it you could prove it i think we need real proof that some type of activity is actually happening where people are losing lives losing land where some type of injustice is happening at the hands of iran but at this point i don't really know that that's necessarily a terrorist attack on you know innocent people you know something like 911 happens of course the response is this is necessary and immediate. is war the answer to that maybe not maybe but i still think personally we should find a different solution besides war we've been to many wars a lot of people have died in doesn't seem to make the issues go with. iran is having violence against the whole or that i think the country maybe can resolve is always use. other countries' interference i can say is i hope nobody gets hurt
2:08 am
i hope for world peace. in japan victims of a $948.00 sterilization law or appealing to government compensation often now saying it didn't cover the gravity of the harm the victim suffered last month a court rejected the demand for more money because the 20 year statute of limitations had passed a law which the government to forcibly sterilized disabled people was suspended in 1906 but the compensation was only off that april this year on he spoke to a relative of a victim who told us about the torment his sister in law had to go through. so no one needs a car so my sister in law was sterilized when she was 15 years old while she was in the 3rd grade of junior high school until the age of 30 show off and suffered from domino pains when i 1st saw her really big scar that was when i knew something was very wrong in the old records i found it was written that my sister underwent for
2:09 am
sterilization due to hereditary development disability however she hadn't electoral disability because of an overdose of honesty here she received much was a baby i don't believe my mother in law gave consent for their permission because their disability was not in parroted she had also wished for her daughter to get married. well the law was aimed at preventing people with disabilities from having children tens of thousands had they want to go the procedure of which more than a half of forced to do it against their will in many cases they didn't get any documentation to prove sterilization even took place now fast forward a pro where no compensation bill was passed which offered each victim $29000.00 despite rejecting the they did welcome a decision by the court to label the procedure is unconstitutional but he took says she believes the government's measures simply are not enough. all you say whore
2:10 am
a kid with achieved judge declared that the old eugene explore was unconstitutional he also showed that it was impossible for those who suffered from forced sterilization to demand an apology and compensation from the japanese government i feel as though parliament's lack of interest in the problem effected our trial and mantooth couldn't get a good result of the 20 victims who filed the lawsuit it's only my sister and one other woman who have managed to obtain official records relating to their sterilization the others don't have them it was a member of the japanese parliament that introduced the legislation that means the government is responsible for the matter i think the japanese government should offer proper policy to the victims. don't translate into new york times again this time after an article about u.s. cyber attacks on russia's electric power grid r.t. senior correspondent orgasm of reports it's difficult to pinpoint who declared this
2:11 am
war but it is a war no missiles no armies just articles tweets and a whole lot of hate the failing new york times versus demagogue trump 1st battle took place before trump was even president ford the candidate and the pundits over objectivity was the 1st to fall in this bitter war if you're a working journalist and you believe that donald j. trump is a demagogue playing to the nation's worst racism nationalistic tendencies that he cozies up to and see american dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the united states nuclear codes how the heck are you supposed to cover him. you'd think the obvious answer would be keeping your opinions to yourself and doing your job staying professional this is war things like honesty and impartiality only
2:12 am
get in the way the n.y.t. even went against its own neutrality buyable right is negative should guard against word choices that undermine each ality if one politician is for resolute an opponent should not be rigid or dogmatic if one country in a conflict has a leadership while the other has a regime impartiality suffers in those days the n.y.t. reported but trump it destroyed them from the ashes was a new new york times these days in no longer just report he's so persistently lied i do think to be frank he changed us i think were different as a result of donald trump once you break some barriers there's no going back that's it they've gone new york times headlines became the ying the trumps twitter yang trump lies he lies he cheats he tells fall towards
2:13 am
a mock trial for his $10000.00 lies i mean this isn't journalism this isn't reporting this is a personal vendetta just like trump's tweet after tweet accusing the new york times of lying deception of treason most recent incident a story about the u.s. hacking russia's power grid made up says the president. do you believe that the failing new york times just did a story stating that the u.s. is substantially increasing cyber attacks on russia this is a virtual act of treason by a once great paper these are true cowards and without doubt the enemy of the people enemy of the people they don't like that out of all the things trump school them that's perhaps what hurts the most enemy of the people is not just a toss of a line that sounds good in the tweet it is a particularly pernicious phrase deep history no president has ever uttered those
2:14 am
words in public what aside the president of the united states and once proud journalists virtually slinging. childish that again perhaps this is healthy good for everyone else i mean the both of them the and others the elites as they call themselves really needed to be taken down a notch has been running against elites his entire business and now it's political career and that includes us we're going to see if a reporter there wouldn't take long for the new york times farce of a tweet back at the president according to a newspaper the u.s. president's administration had seen the article before it was published the tromso national security officials expressing no concern they say about the content some 40 in the morning this monday this is art international for good morning thank you for choosing this coming up after the break india slaps tariffs now on more u.s. goods as washington expands its global trade war it seems like comment on the right
2:15 am
ahead. starting really in the 1980s under reagan at that sure and deregulation you had the fed takeover and their sole purpose at that point was to try to squeeze workers completely out of the global economy so wages never went up real terms sense that but stock markets keep going up and the reason to justify this is that the fed will say we need to try to take care of deflation even know that they are causing to place in an environment where their money printing is increasing the debt. would. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected.
2:16 am
so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go on to be pros which is what before 3 of them all can't be good. i'm interested in the water . question. this is out international good morning ecuador has granted the united states permission to use one of its galapagos islands us an airfield but the government is facing a backlash for what critics are calling a violation of the country's constitution over it. takes a closer look this morning. the galapagos islands home to the giant tortoises birthplace of darwin's theory of evolution and it'll wear you rocked to sleep by
2:17 am
the sound of lapping waves and the gentle hum of american planes you know as you know you love those is but i've mentioned that the galapagos for google is our aircraft carrier it is a natural carrier because it is shores us permanent replenishment interception facilities and it is a 1000 kilometers from our coast united states is going to take charge of improving conditions especially refueling what has might now find some new star spangled species across the sky because ecuador has just agreed to allow the u.s. military to use the u.s. go world heritage site reports claim the pentagon will now keep planes on the historic san cristobal island for operations in the pacific ocean with the primary purpose said to be fighting drug trafficking so far so good that's just a small catch a minor inconvenience really but ecuador in constitution doesn't allow foreign military bases on its soil but now if it says the defense minister it's not
2:18 am
a base pesetas it's a funny little gathering place going to look at the us to meet for periods of no more than a week and is subject to the protocol of the preservation of sovereignty those are my concerns gone also on the plus side washington's covering all the costs but perhaps unsurprisingly not everyone is happy about this latest edition galapagos is not an aircraft carrier for gringo use is an ecuadorian province patrimony of humanity patriotic ground that his vessel soul can reach such a level describes very well the government to represent now ecuador and u.s. relations hit a no no under former president rafael correa he i'm going to washington by closing one of the largest u.s. bases outside the state relations father soured one crank wanted wiki leaks co-founder to be an asylum. asylum and sheltered him from the long arm of the u.s. justice department for years but things have been on the up recently thanks to
2:19 am
lenin moran no who's been in power since 2017 it was miranda who decided that a sanchez outstayed his welcome at the embassy in london we all know the fallout from that the whistle pro was dragged out by the british police slapped with 18 criminal counts by washington now faces extradition to the u.s. and potentially a 175 years behind bars now coincidentally or not at the same time acquittals bank account got an almighty boost with a $4200000000.00 loan from math the international monetary fund where the u.s. has huge voting rights we all know friendships about give and take so at the end of the day what's a small national treasure when your allies got deep pockets. this is one of the series you are a mother from today is international trade war this time with india new delhi says it's going to be imposing tariffs on a further 28 american products as high as 70 percent it follows donald trump's
2:20 am
refusal to exempt india from increased steel an aluminum taxes of the us the us president accused new delhi of not giving washington equal access to the indian market is absurd to meet the indian prime minister narendra modi at the g 20 summit coming up later this month polevoy cure of the in case you missed it take a swipe at the controversial trade policies. how do you launch a war without needing to fight a war in case you missed it the economy stupid. international access to the u.s. market used to be a bit like dating the rich girl next door when you were a voter was not easy or cheap but in the end it was worth a 100 times those u.s. markets are now and 11 and sturgeon i well it is our window access is now expensive and even if it was worth it you know it's going to hurt so we all know that america has the biggest military in the world just levels the cost of whatever
2:21 am
country you're in there's a good chance that there is a u.s. aircraft carrier staring right back at you so now the u.s. is a weapon raising its economy in order to fight international disputes and dominating the market is i.c.b.m.'s. he turned to seeing the intercontinental ballistic sanction ready to be deployed anywhere you need it advantages of the i.c.b.m.'s include causing misery to in time populations in countries you don't like without firing a single shot collapse the economies of your opponents and then blame the attack countries without actually having to deploy a single soldier and then accuse them of aggression and remember once to pull oid i.c.b.m.'s will work for decades with absolutely no effort from you just keep it fueled with a strong dollar you're going to leave the country very. traditionalist because it
2:22 am
was. sanctions are great to use against the likes of cuba venezuela last korea iran russia you know the bad guys the problem is you can't use them against the good guys which is why i don't know the difference administration has repackaged sanctions he calls. tyrus allow you to target friends like mexico your canada and especially your buddies in beijing because while sanctions are used as punishment tyrants are just a normal part of the trade but the way the us has been using them is no different china has started fighting back though apparently they've started to prevent the release of american films this might all have a hollywood ending after all. well maybe or maybe
2:23 am
not confused let's try and put some meat on the bones of this and take a more sober look at it arindam look at. money and business editor and indeed magazine joining us from new delhi hey there thank you time this morning what is this going to go is it just a spot before the sort everything out of that forthcoming g 20 or is it like to turn into a bigger trade war here. obviously going that has a larger implications because this is not something that has happened. just now because. this bonbon or draw removes the privileges and your trade privileges and you enjoyed under the system of preferences so that's one view then there are these that it's increased on. 25 percent and that wasn't it was imposed now india also had to retaliate in some way there's been. we've seen some again trying to retaliate with donald trump does not actually normally maybe get you to the negotiating table does it so in the 1st instance indigo to make the
2:24 am
situation worse by doing this. but what is the other way around i mean india has to retaliate in some way or the i don't see considering that india is the largest importer of our months from the us it's on more than 500000000 worth of amens out imported from the us india is the 2nd largest importer of apples from the us also that's had $150000000.00 worth of imports now india is a very significant trading partner for the us and if one sided moves are given india had to sort of rebellion and india has not done it all of a sudden this was being talked about since last june so for one india as we're going to be ns and now after this that it's on and i mean you haven't seen india had to do this. is indeed a strong position here at employment up growth can you really afford to shake the shake the boat like this with the us girl it is down in the sense you just didn't
2:25 am
have a really good growth as compared to many other countries growth is down in india in quite the growth is down slightly and that is also degradable but then. i don't really quite because as well in the u.s. is the biggest trading part of the largest one but if indian products awful at the u.s. it dubbed opt out it's then. into leaves us with just ireland and those 2 so it's not going to cause the white house is saying actually it's india that on the wrong foot here that india hasn't guaranteed reasonable naked double access to the u.s. to its markets is that a fair assessment. inside to me is yes because they don't access to certain companies like amazon apple in terms of localize ation of their products has been imposed by india that may be a point that the us is taking seriously so as long as that is sorted out these kind of measures will self-less from time to time is trying to mal that india can do
2:26 am
business with end of the day you're likely to sort this out your country and the u.s. for this g. 20 are not. i'm sure he even before the g. 20 it was you know just by the us if you don't mock them by always coming to india next me and there's going to be a minister and secretary level. as early as next week so i'm sure he's out going to be sorted out by lottery. all right so rent money a business editor at indian magazine look thank you for your time today appreciate a good day and thank you for watching us as well it's 9 26 in the morning this is our to international that's the round up so far this month you'll get follow us on twitter or facebook or if you go up check out our. headlines right for the day and go straight to mobile devices that are moscow's kevin i wish you a great day. comma
2:27 am
after time so we're going underground ahead of tomorrow's 35th anniversary of a seminal battle of all grieve when thousands of margaret thatcher's police attacked striking miners in the name of neoliberalism coming up on the show as britain group asked for breakfast a prime minister did the man nicknamed mysticism pave the way for the end of the euro we speak to the former prime minister of italy about austerity and the impact of chinese communism and as the u.s. supreme court delivers opinions today is there a war on christianity over world the poor new york times best selling author david horowitz well a marxist dark agenda to destroy american christianity plus as a christian i certainly believe that's possible is it possible that donald trump has been sent by god to protect jews and oil tankers from the arraignment all this
2:28 am
of all coming up in today's going underground the 1st which have a conservative politician becomes the next u.k. prime minister there likely be an. enthusiastic supporter of brecht's it but our other european countries no one cause to undermine the neo liberal european project to here is a frosty european commission official announcing an e.u. attack on what may be the use 3rd largest economy come halloween the crime failure to deliver austerity on italy today we hear published reports under article 126 point city that the assessing is a breach of the benchmark in 2080. it. is not complied with and. based access to the fix it but a seizure of us warrant or is now what is warranted a european wide refusal to abide by i.m.f. and e.u. economic straight jackets and will the outcome be profound geopolitical realignments that impact not only on the future of the e.u.
2:29 am
but global responses to events as far afield as venezuela iran and hong kong because despite attacks on european nations like britain and italy from washington deals are being done to the consternation of the usas military industrial media complex is the arguable horror in bloomberg take on a visit from chinese leader xi jinping to room why is this such a worrying potential agreement for the u.s. and particularly for european allies it's the new silk road on the symbolism i was speaking to a u.s. official and they were saying it's the symbolism of it to be signing up a major country the only g 7 country to do so far volunteering for a role in belton road which is felt in washington that opens up. the silk road to the heart of europe well joining me now from washington is israeli's former prime minister carlo culturally goller welcome to going underground so just as the u.k. is heading for brics it's on halloween and i think it's really look set to arguably
2:30 am
undermine the euro with something called. aborts you just explained to be would have bought is because that i understand your observatory in to observe it you don't need to have in public accounts is doing has been doing some research on it he has had both a's ascension and treasury bill so it's a way for the government to borrow money what the proposal actually 1st not to the bought which has been it which have been around for a long time to actually be as have been around anything like in most other countries it's about the so-called media bought so they. could be is but we did a very small then and we need to show something that i feel if t. euros $100.00 euros maybe perhaps $500.00 euros but not normally be said much larger than in mediations so they are into used because. they look like bills they look like they look like money and so.
