with obviously i have said there is good that they exist i think we're going to see continue to have all the abilities that will be people continually seeking. to take advantage but if they don't open source code well it's. going to be the hackers are going to get a massive disadvantage to them about so if that's not enough always chairman even offered to sign a no surveillance pact with the countries in which the company operates no spying no back doors so with this unprecedented offer of compromise from the telecoms giant while the panic and harsh rhetoric well remember when we said anyone spying what access the source codes will hamper beijing spying it will be an equal blow for other countries as well the united states for example who are really who are going to buy the equipment for and whoever's taken all do their license and who are the source code using you need to be able to trust the organization and there are any number of manufacturers out there working with this moment in time all of them

3:08 pm
there's never been a fully fledged wintry alliance in place before and expect to form a punt insecure tallis michael maloof who believes the pact what allowed the u.s. to be more involved in middle eastern affairs. in one sense it will commit you know to states to israel's defense even if israel decides it wants to attack let's say for example iran then we would be committed to back them up. without any hesitation even without a piece of paper the united states probably would come to israel's assistance if it was physically attacked. if it was just invaded for example it certainly would. state certainly return to their assistance regardless because of the existing commitments we already have. but i'm concerned about is that if. someone like netanyahu were actually committed to see even more to.

go into a conflict there he may drag us into. the british army is mulling replacing its fossil fuel guzzling equipment with eco friendly according to the country's chief of general staff and it's political explains why the trend of western armies trying to attract minority and green conscious of the current. they might be in the business of killing but they don't want to kill the environment while they're at it the british army is going green general so mark colton smith has said that british forces are going to be phasing out the use of thirsty gas guzzling military vehicles and equipment in favor of plugging in take cleaner technologies it's all in a bid to attract younger and more environmentally conscious recruits not only
3:10 pm
will that give his considerable operational benefits reducing logistic drag but it will also get the army on the right side of the environmental argument especially in the eyes of our next generation of recruits who increasingly make career decisions based on a prospective employers environmental credentials. earlier this year the british army launched a new recruitment drive targeted at young people the campaign emphasise that the army could use the compassion of snowflakes the self belief of millennial zz the confidence of selfie take is and the focus of phone zombies and the push for a greener and more inclusive army isn't limited to the u.k. if u.s. democratic party presidential candidate elizabeth warren gets her way the american army will be adding fighting climate change to its to do list we don't have to choose between a green military and then
3:11 pm
a factor one my plan would improve all servicemembers readiness and safety and the chief cost savings for american taxpayers together we can fight climate change and doing military exercises are notoriously bad for the environment munitions can take hundreds of years to degrade and toxic materials like lead can spill out and pollute groundwater back in 2017 the u.s. government put out a request for the development of environmentally friendly training bullets both the u.s. and u.k. militaries seem determined to put the eco into warrior and recruit some of them at the same time that's great brilliant good for them i don't know if that's necessarily a thing that's going to attract young people necessarily i think they i don't know maybe where we were some people aren't. sure it would be better for some
3:12 pm
people. i've never thought about. but i don't consider that right but i think right to be a need for seems to be door but. what do. very. well going green should go to charlie sure young people at the end of it you want to be put in a foreign mind and get killed you know it doesn't matter what you drink. you know out of. all eco friendly and being for freedom and all of that but personally the fact that during an army doesn't kind of speak to me in theory it sounds like a good idea but whether it would actually work you know really managed. to not go far. enough but really you know. not where you have a. south korea has filed

a complaint with the international olympic committee of the japan's plan to use a military flag during next year's games in tokyo seoul insists the rising sun is no better than the nazi swastika and represents japanese colonial rule and atrocities associated with it take as top official in charge of the 2020 of them pixies no problem with the flying imperial colors eco should all of takes a look at the long running feud between south korea and japan. this flag is the thing setting apart south korea and japan for almost the whole past decade you might not see anything wrong with it but for more than a 1000000000 korean and chinese people it's no different to a swastika during the 2nd world war the japanese empire made this image of the banner for atrocities which rival the darkest crimes of adult hitler.
3:14 pm
the row over the flag largely dates back to 2011 when the nation's football teams met on the pitch to witness the image being literally waved in their faces and since then so has repeatedly asked tokyo to abandon the symbol the latest being their request for the 2020 olympics which japan rubbished the flag itself is not considered to be a political statement so it is not viewed as a prohibited item so now so has reached out to the international olympic committee directly we emphasized that the use of the rising sun flag during the tokyo lympics would be a direct violation of the olympic spirit promoting world peace and love for humanity and that the international olympic committee should have the tokyo organizing
3:15 pm
committee prepare strict measures to prevent it from being brought to stadiums just last week tokyo snubbed an international fleet review in south korea over the demands to abandon any hoisting of the controversial image symbols of nazi germany have been outlawed and to this day on solemn occasions berlin speaks of its continued repent at the same time the japanese flag over. korean and chinese rooms repeatedly according to a lesser by south korea. * and plenty of south koreans agree with the official line one of the reason for
3:16 pm
doing olympics is he's told if you or anyone up please do so and use the flex. shave or whatever doesn't like that i think. they don't want to rebuild the relationship because they deny or recast i suppose. governments opinion i so for. that. you know little big or other are. inferior out there to feel heard. the only one to receive a poll if they should all pull dies sincerely. not only koreans but. the countries. which take effect or come close i think
3:17 pm
1st of all when these people have to know about the history and the abbott government that made their forwards. and maybe we can. get a better relations. for an anti-government protests have erupted in hong kong for yet another weekend the 15th in a row scuffles broke out between the uprising scientists a shopping center in the city. police were at the scene for some time dealing with the incident the initial demonstrations months ago it was bought by a proposed expedition bill but quickly grew into a wider pro-democracy movement while it was announced that the bill will be withdrawn protesters still want to wait for the other demands to be met that includes the investigation into alleged police brutality during rallies and the
3:18 pm
release of those arrested the protests started at the end of march since then activists have been blocking key sites every weekend they've mostly targeted territories airport subway stations shopping malls and major roads locals as well as foreigners are now avoiding those areas on an additional note the unrest has severely hit hong kong's tourist trade there's been a 40 percent drop in facilities in august compared to the same month last year. over the past few months the local social unrest particularly the continued vandalism and disruption to the airports and roads has damaged hong kong's image as a safe city the tourism retail and hotel sectors are suffering the most finance minister we just heard from also noted that had tiles have seen occupancy rates dropped about hoff in some places some of the city's busiest districts are now. compare those pictures now to previous years when it was bustling and very busy in
3:19 pm
hong kong local business owners say they've been hit hard by the unrest. this industry has indeed been he'd have all of us mind only medium sized travel agency but it still has quite a few to a gross to handle. the most important thing is that this is not will we don't want these rights to destroy our society we hope things are resolved as soon as possible and then we can work to try and win back the confidence of tourists to visit hong kong my drivers have made no money for 3 consecutive months i hope things can be settled as soon as possible so peace can be restored to hong kong then our tourism industry can get back to normal we should promote hong kong and get it back to what it was before so that people feel hong kong is the safest city and the best destination for tourism so i had a program for us what is to the service drops regulations like chemicals can be used where water sources as after this short break.
3:20 pm
you know world big partisan looting. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get 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 troops the time is now watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development is only going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time
3:21 pm
to sit down and talk. and. welcome back to the program the trumpet ministration has announced and the repeal of the clean water rule regulations that control the use of chemicals in their water sources the idea is to ease the bureaucratic burden on but it's also brought to the surface fears the u.s. water security could be compromised. like most of us donald trump enjoys the occasional refreshing glass of clean water.
3:22 pm
but he doesn't seem as keen to keep the water clean as his predecessor trap has recently lifted obama era restrictions and regulations on the spraying of chemicals and pesticides near streams wetlands and other bodies of water in new wood is definition to provide hardworking americans the ring the tories certainly the need to invest and develop and build new projects that improve lives in the environment so what has changed well during the obama era if you wanted to use certain chemical pesticides and sprays in your body of water you need a permit now you don't there's certainly going to be a lot of rejoicing about this from certain sectors many american farmers and manufacturers felt that they were being crushed by the obama era regulations intended to curb water pollution it would be great if farmers didn't have to hire an army of consultants and lawyers just to be able to farm now the new rules are being criticized as overly vague with the decision about what bodies of water get
3:23 pm
protected being decided on a case by case basis now the farmers are overjoyed but that feeling is not being shared by people in communities that depend on streams and rivers many see to some towns to live in with unsafe. and it's very important to us that now it's not the time to cut back on clean water protections that the american farmers haven't been too keen on donald trump lately due to his trade war with china so perhaps rolling back these clean water regulations will help when i'm some point with the agricultural sector regardless environmentalists are up in arms but as many gamblers have said before you can't win it all up and archie new york. chef and food activist canada is creating a stir let's racism in the west and take them i was a little girl was told she was not allowed to buy so with the harms in a school cafeteria. suggesting that a child who eats with their hands has no manners is an echo of european colonial
3:24 pm
powers looking to tame the wildness out of the people they controlled these european table manners were imposed on conquered people in an attempt to civilize them the idea of a single standard of acceptable table manners is just one of a host of strategies used to grow and promote racism i thought have been are to digest in some quarters though the article by josh not maharaj was published in a canadian parenting magazine he argues that table militia updated to be more diverse including in schools but it's left a sour taste with well. another nail in the caffein of the word racism having any meaning left whatsoever shame of colonisation food activist stick a fork in us we're done no wait not a fork that's racist culture isn't a race when will people learn the difference between culture and race. you know we all have different cultural norms and certainly if when you come from
3:25 pm
a certain from a certain country there are variations of customs depend on where you live children they learn their customs and culture a city in that their own table so when they travel someplace else especially young children they are not going to know now as adults we do our homework and if we are conducting business in another country we certainly want to learn customs and we all have basic rules of conduct at the table when you visit another country you always want to do your homework in advance much like the way that we drive much like the way that we tip in different society in different cultures because it all varies if someone comes to another country and they have a different a different mannerism or a different custom we don't want to berate them for using their customs we as as guests at a table always want to be accommodating to fellow guests and we want to treat everyone with respect and i think that's what it boils down to is being respectful
3:26 pm
of another person that's our news this hour i'll be back around 30 minutes time with more updates to stay with us. well you know the pirate thing we've kind of adopted because we were called pirates for so long. i mean they're in this small ball and sniff it hard pulling ships and it's standing. in line to come in and. the little self to be told fish already 90 percent of the guard on any pinball on the counter. yukon to 15 scoops $75.00 tons and they do it several times a day with a big fleet so no you get an idea on why the ocean is full which. we have to
3:27 pm
understand we can all stay still and just. be witness of the deal going to give us. i'm doing this because i want the future world to future generations to have and enjoy the ocean we have. joined me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world the politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see that. the world is driven by a dream shaped by one percent of those but. no
3:28 pm

3:29 pm
g.l.a. zone anymore and that this is a conspiracy one thing you do notice is that they do not appear on the day anymore because the police have successfully kept them from there so paris is a sprawling city and there are continuing to be protests despite you know having been august and they don't come back from summer vacation until mid september but one thing i wanted to note is that there is a lot of attention that has been paid to the ongoing you know unrest in hong kong the protesters there and something remarkable happened that really stood out to me because it reminded me of what is happening here in the g. the asian on this globalization of not only protest but also globalization of police military tactics police surveillance tactics national nation state surveillance tactics and here is an image from hong kong this before kerry lamb back down but this is a poster this is a nurse with
3:30 pm
a eyepatch and sir you forgot your conscience it says hong kong police attempted to murder hong kong people so one young woman had her eye taken out by being hit by the equivalent of an l b d or a flash bang as they are flash ball as they call them here and france where 24 people have lost their i right you know it's interesting this trickle down military . zation and targeting of civilians that we see in global conflicts is now happening more on a local protest so you know we normalize the idea that civilians are targeted in a war now they used to be against the geneva convention and used to be against the rule of war but now this is been normalized and so now on the every day protests. you know you also see the militarization protests and the targeting of civilians with the military grade weapons well actually what you see with robert chalmers
