5:01 pm
hello there good morning you're watching r.t. international now around them voice of the u.n. has said that the country is not planning to any more to carry out attacks against the u.s. as long as washington refrains from further aggression he also said that terrans revenge for the death of its top general has been fulfilled after last night's missile strikes on 2 u.s. bases in iraq president trump earlier responded to those strikes by promising new sanctions. as we continue to evaluate options in response to a rainy aggression the united states will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the iranian regime. these powerful saying shoes will remain until or and changes its behavior here any military strikes to which trump
5:02 pm
responding that it would carry that from events in sas and i should hope general thanks to the money came to us during strike last week he's had a more heinous following trying to press. it's quite a different tone than we've heard from trump in the last few days folks will remember the tweet where he threatened to destroy not only sites in iran but also cultural historical sites as well as other infrastructure and such in iran if iran dared to respond so quite a different tone we heard from donald trump what's also quite interesting is trump he seems to have talked about continuing the sanctions against iran didn't specify however that the usa intended any retaliatory strikes for iran's recent move and he also brought up the issue of iran's nuclear capacity and allegations of iran's nuclear proliferation the iran nuclear deal which didn't seem to be related to the current controversy let's take a listen as long as i'm president of the united states around will never be allowed
5:03 pm
to have a nuclear weapon. good morning the time has come for the united kingdom germany france russia and china to recognize this reality. they must now break away from the remnants of the year and who are j c p o way trump emphasized his opposition to the j c p o way the nuclear deal and was calling for different parties around the world to withdraw from it he saw it as a bad deal but he also seemed to indicate that he would be open to some kind of new nuclear conclusion or nuclear negotiation regarding the islamic republic and its nuclear energy program furthermore trump didn't shy away from praising u.s. military equipment and weapons and he spoke of them in rather glowing terms let's take a listen to that our missiles are big powerful accurate lethal and fast under
5:04 pm
construction are many hypersonic missiles the fact that we have this great military equipment however does not mean we have to use it we do not want to use it and now many observers have commented on trump's demeanor and how he seemed to be lacking a lot of the boldness and bluster for which is supporters like him for and have praised him for and it's also noting interesting that trump mentioned that isis and the defeat of isis was a good thing for iran and left an opening for the usa and iran to cooperate against the i still terrorist so quite an interesting change in tone many people wondering if this will in fact lead to a further deescalation of events but at the moment things have been known to change rather quickly all eyes are still on iran and on washington to see what the next move will be we don't trump speech has come off the tensions in the middle east so would i for the past week or so let's take
5:05 pm
a quick then it high things escalated. well
5:06 pm
the u.s. house of representatives is due to vote on thursday on whether to limit its ability to use military force against iran we asked former u.s. congressman paul and also the middle east analyst. about the risks of an all out conflict. it's not totally unlike trump you know to make a lot of noise and then i get people all excited and stir things up and then then back off a bit because i think basically i'm hoping anyway that he doesn't enjoy killing people and perp right provoking wars but we still have our problems because he still has too many neo cons to run them to try to aggravate things and make things work but i wish we could be reassured that peace has broken out because there's too
5:07 pm
many problems there and i just think that the solution is something i suggested before it started it is don't go in and says we've been and i say come home and iraqis ask us to leave and i think we should leave but as long as we have this monstrosity of an embassy and in. iraq it's just going to print be provoking you know people to attack us so i it claims that he went in there and killed killed the later because he wanted to stop a war and of course i lean toward the fact acting like that is more likely to start a war which i would like to make sure that we don't get into a real hot war but what prism trabant said it looks like that he is actually deescalating the tone about threatening iran because he said previously is that america will bomb about $52.00 sites $52.00 locations was $51.00 locations that
5:08 pm
it's supposed to be inside iran if anything's happened to any kind of americans in the whole world so this time he looks more calm he actually focused on some sort of more sanctions more economical sanctions. he talks also about he talked also about the nuclear deal and making a new nuclear deal that sure that trump is actually pushing forward in human. go see issues between iran and the u.s. and also between iran and the allies of us. just hours after iran launched its missile strikes ukrainian passenger jet crashed interaction killing all 176 people on board the moment it bursts into flames was captured on video. please. please. please the training president vladimir selenski is cut short
5:09 pm
a visit to amman to return to kiev on his facebook page he expressed his condolences to the relatives of the victims people are mourning the dead and waiting for any further information to a bad disaster with the cause still to be established is what's known so far. of it well the right side of the airplane and one end of it were completely on fire and i think the climate really greater not to hold presidential houses the plane crash landed in largely park and destroy the fence before it all then it took off again and exploded and was completely incinerated after what you know the concrete was watching the news of the rainy and hitting us bases with missiles on t.v. after 10 minutes i heard a massive explosion and all the houses started to shake it was fire every which at 1st i thought the american substructure with mr and i went into the basement to
5:10 pm
take it all through while i went out and saw the plane had crashed over their body parts were lying around. that is just to see this house of 167 passengers 2 are ukrainian citizens on the bus and jews are citizens of canada iran germany sweden and afghanistan.
5:11 pm
instead of similarly my oldest son is this stupid my daughter called me from the us she told me that the ukrainian aircraft crashed just wary go through i said to ron and i still do video of the plane crash. something they have had and if a significant came to the fishing known to the turks trained and natural gas pipeline will have the details on that and it significance to stuff. you know world of big partisan movies a lot of things 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 smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bats and shouting past each other it's
5:12 pm
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. what holds us institutions. they put themselves on the line. they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to be. right to be close this is what the forecast 3 of the 4 can't be good get. interested in the waters at the cottage. they should.
5:13 pm
welcome back you without saying now in turkey that i'm a pigs in a nice to his counterpart president to when i've officially launched the stream natural gas pipeline the projects will supply the turkish and the markets with russian. i guess it is time to say happy new stream because the project's been a launch the official ceremony i was there for and i heard a massive round of applause and it was actually done by the leaders of 4 countries russia charkhi belgariad and serbia and just how well things seem to be go and with the turkish frame which is going through the waters of the black sea i guess it is fair to say that it's kind of a compensation for all the trouble with
5:14 pm
a different project which is called nord string 2. there was a thorny path now because of the latest round of american sanctions there was a pause and its construction but i can tell you that washington was keen to rail turkey a stream as well however because of personal commitment by vladimir putin and thai period 2 on this commitment did show that when 2 major leaders team up to somehow oppose u.s. pressure that could lead to real success stories and this is exactly what mr putin talked about during the opening ceremony because the relations between russia and to the developing in practically sphere is just going to be a difficult situation in the world and efforts by some exertional plays to prevent the expansion of mutually beneficial cooperation between our countries. well let me just give you some of the specific details about the pipeline itself turkish stream
5:15 pm
consists of 2 lines one is intended for consumers in turkey the other one goes to southern europe it could be extended to as far as austria or italy but the 1st countries to receive russian natch. well gas through the turkish tree will be buggy area serbia and then like i said extensions are possible so the sea distance of that pipeline is some 900 kilometers and what's really important here and really impressive is the capacity because both the slides will be able to deliver more than 30000000000 cubic meters of natural gas again directly from the russian port city of a knob up to the shores of turkey and then further on to europe you need frank there needs down but we discussed the significance of the no nj with key plays and down the list. was initially starting from the late ninety's was to have
5:16 pm
diverse patient of troops not resources as your god. and energy supplies because it's important for turkey as we are not just uses so this is to extreme replace the western pipeline. it will pump more than we have received so far from the west by one u.s. soldier to say that's clear on where it is ok just that they were they were not happy about this that the 3rd story of what north to the americans would like also to sell their own gas and the form of identity that they have a huge capacity so far that. they would like to suffer from have this isn't the 1st time turkey's been threatened with sanctions by the united states as we know with the russian air and system that turkey purchased american threaten the turks with katz's sanctions but turkey went ahead with the deal and now it's going to be operational in april according to the chairman of the turkish the bents industries
5:17 pm
show so the turks have showed that they're willing to stick to their guns when it comes to matters of national security it looks like the turks will go ahead with this despite any type of cats sanctions threats coming out of the united states energy security is an important part of. the national security portfolio and what this project gives 30 years are solid proof given for the foreseeable future also during the meeting the leaders of russia and turkey called for an end the hostilities in libya the warring sides to reach a cease fire by january the 12th libya's u.n. backed government has welcomed statement from the team presence. we call on all parties to declare a sustainable cease fire supported by the necessary measures to be taken for stabilizing the situation on the ground and normalizing daily life in tripoli and other cities in the country has been in a state of war since protests in 2011 and the ousting of the country's leader
5:18 pm
muammar gadhafi of libya risk currently controlled by generally for have to and the libyan national army while turkey has stood behind the un backed government which is in charge of a fraction of the war torn country last month we did request military aid from ankara to counter the general's forces and it appointment was approved last day by the turkish government which commanders though chris bambery says that a cease fire would be hard to enforce. i think russia and turkey have some sway i think career with a government in tripoli turkey or no really the only backers but it's also important to see that egypt and behind them so do rebel also major players in this supporting the other site i don't know how much control. how much attention there will be a good deal brokered between russia and tokyo given the antagonism exists particularly with so so do rivers so there's another complicating factor in here is the u.n.
5:19 pm
backed government is no essentially only high in all in a coastal strip of the country has very little control it has the capital yes tripoli but very little else is just lost a major city of sirte so i don't see the other side. appearing to really aged fiction. backing off necessarily here but on the other hand we desperately need peace and the people of libya deserve peace so let us hope that this deal can be pulled off to give the long suffering people of libya piece. the film award season is in full swing but actors looking to bag britain's highest moviegoing may find it hard this year if they're not white because that's after the british academy of film television arts was slammed for its picks with every single of his acting nominations going to white performers but after i had admitted the lack of
5:20 pm
by diversity but called on the industry to change. i would like to see more diverse nominations and we will work harder in push the new stream more but that shouldn't take away from those who were nominated this year but his nominations are a joke not nominating a single woman for directing the best film no antonio banderas no look at the norcross funa. view with the most nominations yikes an all white slate of acting nominees in this of all years bafta this is not good enough here we go again a laura season the 3rd time for a sexist and racist nominations it's not ok incidents it's systematic we put the issue up for debate with the legal and media analysts lionel and also political commentator. let me just tell you something if if if studios maybe money
5:21 pm
exists lined up where we want to live it might not be reverse racism it is a studio so if studios. and studios made money having nothing but diverse women or whatever was they would do it believe me they're not going to do something just because of some ulterior motive let's be quite clear the world in which my kids and hopefully their kids we're going to have a few tough challenges and some bumps in the road on the way he's going to want to be increasing diversity increasing pluralism and secularism these arguments about i don't want to wipe society yeah stop the well let me off it's not going to happen ok we're going to have increasing diversity yet more basic needs more muslims more rigorous more much everything sex you want to feel and shiny and better phones and better no no to me i don't know where that you launch. but just the idea of taking governmental regulations quote his. head of heterogeneity diversity and applying it to movies and films i mean do you have people right now
5:22 pm
are going to want watching this and laughing hysterically at what we're even promo why i look at this and listen i want to see this one to discover a lot lot of you know they are. absolutely whiter richer less diverse then you find in society i don't after years and years and years when gene mining about trying to get better levels of representation across the board surprise surprise we've seen it so i don't want wash you want to go to theaters based upon the diversity of the people on the screen if that if that's truly what you want not the quality of the film not the story but just the participants then you who are of the smallest minority of people because nobody really believes this they claim they do. and also one more thing bafta wants to be in the same category
5:23 pm
as the golden globes because everybody's talking about the golden globes not because of ricky gervais' bafta has got to make money being number one because there's so many different awards shows that this is their latest entry maybe this will put them on the map it's numbers for ratings that. your stomach rats have been accused of being too broad a church by one of their own congresswoman cassio cortez who represents the younger progressive wing of the democrats expressed an ease about being in the same party as the presidential hopeful joe biden oh god in any other country joe biden and i would not be in the same party but in america we are. her remarks come amid a growing rift between progressive or moderate forces within the party she was previously skeptical about joe biden and his approach to climate change and biden says that the casio cortez and other young representatives lika only make up a small little life in a faction among the democrats and i.o.c.
5:24 pm
is brilliant and the other 3 women we're talking about are really smart but they are the exception rather than the rule if you listen to the guys and women in your business they think that's the majority people grab elected we need that kind of energy but that's not the majority of democrats who got like the last presidential candidate for the libertarian party out in bora believes that the problem though for the democrats is that they are on every side of every issue. most people who are democrats for the last several decades are not socialists they're not willing to become socialists are not persuadable to become socialists so so cortez's position is is not something that most democrats can really identify with so in a large sense she's right the the party that she's in charge should not be the same party that biden is and they do have different positions to what both the democratic and republican party have been doing is they've been going out of their
5:25 pm
way to try to make it harder for new parties to even get on the ballot there have been multiple court case on the democratic and republican parties have lost multiple court cases all of this and they keep doing this because they are getting worried they're getting a little bit desperate they're realizing that yes their position absolutely is being threatened right well and so they're trying to just prevent anyone else from competing and that brings up to date that's how the news is looking this hour what have more feet i mean about $35.00. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see that.
5:26 pm
it is physics physics is nothing but the harmony you can create on vibrating strings but it's chemistry chemistry is the melody the melodies you can play on strings what is the universe the universe is a symphony of strings. reality has mandates of its own that go beyond what our wishes and preferences are. and our utopian visions may be we're going to get a new deal but it may not be the green new deal that people are expecting will get the green new deal that we have we deserve rather think we are going to get a green new deal because the green new deal in compass is things beyond just right infrastructure healthcare's in that new deal there are other elements if you go back 20 started in 2006 that we are going to good and that are popular in this country.
5:27 pm
good food descriptions sound up to tell using even for the owners so how to choose just pet food industry is telling us what to feed our pets really more based on what they want to sell ask them what's necessarily good for the pet turns out that food may not be as healthy as people believe and we have animals that have you know diabetes in our stratos they have auto immune disorders these allergies we are actually creating these problems it's a huge epidemic of top of all of them i believe can be linked to very simple problem of diet and some dog owners so heartbreaking stories about their pets last treats the larger corp. missions are not very interested in proving or disproving the value of their food because they're already making it a $1000000000.00 on it and there's no reason to do that research.
