9:07 am
the politics break down into two camps for republicans it is about mental health the shooter was trained to be an excellent shot by the u.s. marines he served in afghanistan well he was a war veteran he was a marine he was in the war he served time he saw some pretty bad things and a lot of people say he has the p.t.s.d. and. i just don't feel for democrats it's about guns this is a man. got to change. this doesn't happen anywhere else on planet earth. and we can't let folks forget that you can't lose sight of that can allow this to be normalized it's been a constant conversation with little action while the republicans controlled all branches of government that changes in january and the likely house leader nancy pelosi put out a statement promising house democrats will fight to pass bipartisan commonsense solutions to prevent gun violence in communities across the country that the bill that's going to. the right now it seems much more likely that we'll learn many new
9:08 am
names new victims new stories of loss and horror long before congress agrees to act patty klein al-jazeera washington. let's take you back to those wildfires in california rob reynolds joins us live now from ventura county rob so tell us where you are now and what's been happening there. well we're in ventura county derren and what you're seeing behind me on the ridge here would be something a beautiful sight very dramatic sight if it weren't so deadly and destructive at the same time this is the woolsey fire it is called and it has so far according to. authorities at their latest briefing been zero percent contained the fire has burned over seven thousand hectors and about eighty to one hundred thousand people in ventura and los angeles counties have been evacuated about ninety thousand homes are at risk including many of the wealthy
9:09 am
and famous of los angeles and its surrounding areas the coastal enclave of malibu which is well known around the world from movies and such is bennett has also been evacuated and police rather a fire battalion chief from los angeles county told reporters earlier that this fire could burn for days i'm wrong upon from southern california where you are they've also been finds in northern california as well what more can you tell us. yes that's been termed the camp fire because of the place where it began and that fire also came up very very quickly and very violently fanned by high winds and feeding on dry brush and vegetation it basically incinerated the town of paradise and sadly five residents of that town were burned
9:10 am
to death while they were trying to escape in their cars they were trapped on the road so all in all given what we heard in the report from patty culhane about the mass shooting and now these devastating wildfires it's been a pretty rough couple of days for california rob thank you. yemeni government forces backed by the saudi a morality coalition ever launched a major offensive to retake the rebel held city of her data but un's warn that thousands of people have been trapped by the fighting. on the edge of her day the battle for the territory is intensifying it is a relentless spite with both sides claiming they are making gains data is the prize at the center of this nearly seventy percent of yemen's commercial imports pass through the city's poorest practically who u.n.

9:12 am
a place where war has become a daily plight pursued leibel hunger has become the norm one child under five in yemen dies every ten minutes the diseases which are killing them are entirely preventable half a million people have fled the area around to data since june when government forces try to recapture the city but for many in the poor city there is no escape and little chance of outside help while the number of those remaining and how dangerous is he is difficult to gauge you are not you know and it's the hours of worried that people needing to flee for safety are unable to do so they're trapped by military operations which are increasingly confining populations and cutting off exit routes there are continued cool suppressed cease fire and the political solution to be found for yemen these so far have been ignored with neither side willing to compromise ever heywood. the reuters news agency says the u.s. may stop refueling aircraft in the coalition fighting in yemen the trumpet
9:13 am
ministration has been under growing pressure to limit its help in a war that's created a huge humanitarian crisis mike hanna joins us live now from washington d.c. mike so if this is confirmed would it be a significant sign of u.s. displeasure. well there's no confirmation from the pentagon at all at present and one must just point out that this has been a subject of discover sation for a number of weeks last week the defense secretary jane matters arguing that the question of refueling saudi aircraft was immaterial because the number is less than twenty percent it also appears that saudis are improving their air refueling ability which may make the u.s. involvement in refueling specifically not necessary so the possibility is the pentagon implies that after discussions between the saudis and the us the saudis may unilaterally decide to stop the refueling program that being said it has been
9:14 am
the point of the issue in congress the whole u.s. involvement in yemen has been a major issue even before the murder of jamal which intensified anger within congress and even in the course of the stay two senators one republican one democrat have specifically demanded that the refueling of saudi aircraft be stopped that u.s. involvement in that ongoing operation be curtailed so certainly there is great tanguay in congress about the issue and might what other moves other in congress to impose some form of punitive sanctions. well there has been ongoing moves of the senate awhile back sent president trump a letter demanding that the begin to ski act that he investigate the murder and that he impose sanctions should accountability be established this was followed up by a letter from the house of representatives who demanded basically the same there's also be moves in recent weeks to end the ongoing nuclear civilian nuclear talks
9:15 am
between the u.s. and saudi arabia there is also pending a nuclear agreement between the u.s. and saudi arabia which some lawmakers are indicating they will block in the house if the president does not suspend the ongoing discussions on the question of civilian nuclear aid so there is a major brewing in congress in both houses and across both aisles in terms of resistance to the u.s. involvement both in your in yemen and also there is that ongoing demand for some kind of sanction to be imposed for the death of jamal khashoggi all of this is going to come together when congress sits again in january after this lengthy mid-term recess or to my kind of there in washington mike thank you now british prime minister to reason may has joined the french president to mundial mock role in finance to commemorate one hundred years since the end of world war one they met near the french belgian border to all of the missing of the battle of the somme
9:16 am
micron's to the host around seventy world leaders and paris to mark the end of the great war more than eighty million people were killed in the conflict. you know our president trump has arrived in paris for those commemorations but one event he won't be attending is a summit on global cooperation organized by the french president it's a sign of the differing dealings trump and macro have toward multilateral institutions james bays reports and perhaps. this is the paris peace forum final preparations are being made at the venue which the french president wants to use to bolster international cooperation at a time when many leaders are putting domestic interests above global ones the forum is the idea of president emanuel merkel but some are not attending it looks like president trump will be among those who'll be in paris but will be skipping the forum when global leaders last met together in new york at the u.n. in september it was pretty clear there are increasingly different visions of the
9:17 am
way the world should work trump talks of strong independent nations putting their own people first while mark rolle stresses cooperation through multilateral institutions like the un america will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance control and domination. only sessions we should support those working for peace and humanity unesco the conscience of the united nations the human rights council the international criminal court under water and we're increasing our support. bernard kushner is a former french foreign minister. and i worry about nationalism because this addition of nationalism. even in europe and if i may say so many new rock. all roses edition of the nationalism are very dangerous because too much in nationalism to drive will drive us to war. president trump arriving in paris on
9:18 am
air force one he's one of about eighty leaders gathering here for the commemoration of one hundred years since the end of world war one that war was followed by increasing nationalism particularly in germany the league of nations forerunner to the united nations failed after the us didn't join it because of opposition from hardline republicans a wiser person to me once said history doesn't repeat itself but it right as james plays out zero paris. zener in moscow have some of the each other's ambassadors other claims a retired austrian general worked as a spy for russia for decades the seventy year old allegedly provided russian intelligence information about austria's military and political situation since nine hundred ninety russia's foreign minister says they know nothing about the issue.
9:19 am
for a time for a quick check of the headlines here in al-jazeera the un refugee agency is demanding the u.s. ensures that people escaping violence or persecution are given protection under international law president donald trump signed a proclamation which says migrants who enter the country illegally cannot claim asylum is movies aimed at thousands of people from central america currently making their way to the u.s. border. people can come in but they have to come in through the ports of entry. that to be is a very important thing again i reiterate we need democrat votes they have to pass new immigration laws because the flooding our country would not let it go but they're trying to flood our country we need a wall we're building a wall but we need it all built one time and. it's very important we need democratic support or new immigration laws to bring us up to date the laws are obsolete and they're incompetent. turkish police are officially ending the search
9:20 am
for jamal khashoggi as body but will continue the criminal investigation into the saudi journalist's murder sources have told al jazeera that traces of acid were found at the saudi consul general's residence in istanbul that's near the saudi consulate where a soldier was killed last month it's believed his killers used chemicals to dispose of his body sri lanka's president mice upon a serious senate has dissolved parliament clearing the way for a snap election in january two years ahead of schedule a political crisis began two weeks ago when the president replaced the prime minister and al-shabaab bomb and gun attack as killed at least twenty one people in the somali capital mogadishu. bombs exploded similar tenuously near a hotel and police headquarters witnesses say a gunman tried to storm the oto by blowing up its security wall a state of emergency has been declared in the u.s.
9:21 am
state of california where raging wildfires are causing widespread destruction at least five people have died tens of thousands have been ordered to leave their homes the fires destroyed the entire town of paradise where twenty seven thousand people were forced out well those are the headlines the news continues here on al-jazeera of the inside story that's what battle. one hundred years after the end of world war one there is another war one of world vision's ideologies of the french and u.s. presidents clashes leaders gather in paris for an imitator events how dangerous are these differences and how close are we to another global conflict this is inside
9:22 am
story. of the program i'm richelle carey it was the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and became a pivotal moment in world history and marked the armistice agreement that officially ended world war one and this weekend one hundred years later we are some more than fifty countries are gathered in france for commemorative events but the solemn occasion is being overshadowed by deep divisions between transatlantic allies this week the french president call for a european army to defend itself from potential threats from nations such as russia china and remarkably the united states and its global philosophy is at odds with the u.s. president on a nationalist america first agenda how stark are the divisions between those ideologies of trump and mccrone there's
9:23 am
a lot to discuss with our guests. jordan on how the u.s. got involved in the first world war. on april second one nine hundred seventeen u.s. president woodrow wilson issued the battle cry the world must be made safe for democracy many americans approved of the decision to go to war against germany and its allies a government that is running amok but despite the headlines and propaganda efforts just as many americans opposed fighting in the so-called great war the u.s. historian michael king isn't described the antiwar movement in his recent book war against war it did seem like a war that was in the american national interests it seemed like a war that most europeans had not wanted to fight in the first place so there was a sense that if america got involved the war it would only make guys face more militarist country which is just the fall face so in the european powers that had
9:24 am
gone to war in the first place even so kazan says the impact of the war on us society was far reaching some suffragist leveraged women's performance in the workplace to convince congress they should have the right to vote black soldiers including the harlem hell fighters who fought in france discovered their service did not protect them from racism after the war and that inspired the work of civil rights activists in the decades ahead and the us started a long running debate about what it means to be a global power economically militarily and diplomatically. wilson had resisted calls to enter the war since it began in one nine hundred fourteen but after a german u. boat torpedo the cargo ship aztec on april first getting congress to declare war was easy by the time the armistice was signed on november eleventh one thousand nine hundred eighteen one hundred sixteen thousand u.s. troops had died either in combat or because of the flu pandemic kazan says that
9:25 am
does not mean the antiwar movement had failed what the story there to we're moving doing what one can teach us is that it's crucial for americans for people for the nation to force their politicians and their media. and their businesses those who are the businesses to. think very carefully about this decision because once you decide to go to war there's no going back an important insight one hundred years on especially given that americans still don't agree on when and why the u.s. should go to war rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington. joining us now from coventry via skype david lisi is lecturer in french that he set warrick university and coeditor of contemporary france and in berlin thorston
9:26 am
inventor director of the global public policy and to welcome to the program gentlemen we appreciate it so there's been a a lot of late up to that this commemoration these anniversary events and paris and over the past few days french president mandela made a call for a you were european force to defend europe specifically naming russia china and the u.s. i want to start with you david how did those remarks strike you. well in many ways i think this is this is nothing new it in some ways the macro he he's positioning himself as a kind of dominant leader of the french nation and of course richard is perceived to be a threat by many european powers including germany in the u.k. that the difference here there of course is the image to the u.s. a theme of the central challenge now this comes in the context of donald trump threatening to withdraw u.s. funding from nato and micro is a real he's a real fun of the the so-called supranational bodies so particular the european
9:27 am
union and also nato and he sees the french role in both of those organizations being significant so for micro in some ways this is an opportunity to position himself as being a leader of those two organizations and say france be pushed to the world stage i think he's recent jostling for position here and a many ways i think we need to draw a line between the rhetoric of macro and the reality is a situation a chronic trump appeared to enjoy a very close personal relationship whereby here in the rhetoric around what micron is saying this appears to be sort of more of a challenge in a position of trying to force france to the top of the international agenda so i wouldn't i wouldn't read too much into this and are are your parents even on on the same page with that crawl when it comes to that david i'll get to in just a moment or stan i wouldn't say so no i think macro is if he has his own political agenda to try and means of course this is a man here is actually very in popular moments domestically in france he's somebody
9:28 am
you need. popularity in in france and he's concerned i think it's secular about his domestic economic agenda he came to power promising economic reforms to the french state nobody's been seen yet and so really there are people in france wondering what exactly the crime is going to do now whenever a french president look to try and position himself as a kind of oversees this year and their popularity in a challenge to so macro. so is that selecting away from its lack of popularity when you look at the u.k. that is i'm going to go for example in threes may in the u.k. there's clearly a sense that actually european defense agents are you know i mean it's not going to happen it's not something which is a priority and in particular because of the u.k.'s contacts to break this that's playing on the number one priority the moment so micro in some ways is an outlier ready enough and either say so every day every this year around rhetoric around political domestic agenda and anything else first and how did it strike you when.
9:29 am
that way. i mean that the context seemed pretty reasonable it was a speech or remarks he gave leading up to the anniversary of the end of the first world war where he warned against the poison of aggressive nationalism that is spreading in europe again and across the world he warned against the aggressive author of terrorism of china and russia and against the division that europe for the internal division that europe divisions that europe needs overcome those are all very reasonable remarks what he said with this kind of real european army that he wanted and also this off hand remark that it's partly put possibly also directed against the u.s. that struck me as somewhat odd i mean it's it's partly in tradition with some of the some of the previous rhetoric but it overshoots the previous rhetoric i think quite considerably and i'm not sure why charles that it wasn't embedded in
9:30 am
a broader policy initiative that hasn't there hasn't been any follow up in the u.s. and france are allies does it concern you that this is what the rhetoric has become between two countries that are supposed to be allies david i'll let you take that first i do think this way it's kind of a matter of positioning himself as appearing to be in this kind of long tradition of anti-americanism in france this is something which goes back at city one thousand nine hundred twenty and beyond and more recently after the second world war it was a significant level nancy americanism which is of course encouraged by charles to go numb up krum see themselves as being a call at least in some way seen as kind of directly heritage some of charles de gaulle policy solutions to those ideas around from his role in the world stage so i'd say in some ways more macross doing he's going to do goes language but in a context where there is no more cold war it's a very different political economic landscape from the one nine hundred sixty one to go in power so we want to bring someone else into the conversation now from
9:31 am
brussels theresa fallon's going to join the conversation director of center for russia your. asia studies we appreciate your time and i want to bring you into the conversation and ask you the same question that i put to the gentleman that in the last few days france for france's president mad men while macro and pardon me made reference to wanting a european force to defend europe specifically against threats in a russia china that's not surprising but he named the united states as well i'd be curious to know your thoughts your reaction to those remarks well we saw donald tusk say the same thing several months ago i think this is a worrying narrative especially since transplanted relations have been very strong for the last seventy years and this is not helpful i think this is in response to the trumpet ministration. way the pulling out of the iran agreement also climate change pulling out of that agreement and also the tariff or so instead of working with the europeans the trumpet ministration has unfortunately had the approach of
9:32 am
upsetting everyone at the same time allies as well as adversaries and instead of working together with them they've actually turn them against the u.s. now this new program that. the crown has mentioned i mean i wonder how this will work sitting as they do in brussels how this will work with pascoe because pascoe is made up of twenty five members and this is kind of a coalition of the willing it also pulls in the u.k. which is traditionally not interested in some sort of european armies of this is an interesting creation of a coalition of the willing and how this will affect nato will it help or will it compete with nato in the future is also problematic i think everyone would be happy if europe did more heavy lifting the u.s. is involved in three theaters right now and if your did more heavy lifting in its own region i think that would be very much appreciated and i want to bring bring up something to eat a good point that she said that there maybe it is a fair critique that europe could do more of the heavy lifting and some would say that that's what donald trump has been trying to get to it's just maybe not perhaps
9:33 am
the most. a diplomatic way that he says things and less is be honest he's actually insulted a lot of allies bit and said things that just weren't actually true about you know they owed the us money etc etc having said that do you think he has a fair critique of course i mean he does have a point to europeans are not doing their share to collective security within nato and. european allies or everybody agreed to a two percent spending goal in terms of g.d.p. and many countries including germany are not moving closer toward that goal at least not fast enough and saw all too many americans including donald trump for european allies come across as needy whiny allies and free riders. he ticklers this in a pretty crass kind of way but i think he does have an underlying point that europe
9:34 am
needs to shape up in needs to invest in its own capabilities in order to be a credible ally that the us also takes seriously and also to prepare for the eventuality that the us will call it quits and no longer on the right an unconditional security guarantee for europe which is not a very improbable conservation in the coming decades us president on a trump is a self identified national as he specifically use that word a few weeks ago in a rally he embraced and he said yeah go ahead and call me that. what might that mean going forward what do you see that potentially meaning. well i think it's a very real risk of isolationism is there i think and it's clear in terms of the the rhetoric around trump and most recently of course in the midterm election campaign season as he said not only the nationalist as a kind of in the french town close nationalists us to say you know closing the
9:35 am
borders protecting the nation states against sort of foreign influence i think the real risk of course of the u.s. withdrawals as we've been saying from from europe and we draw also those all to educate alliances and particularly when it comes to helping western european countries with that offense the real risk i think is that this heightens it's tension between opposite tension between the likes of trump them across as they try and sort of appear to be the powers in on the world stage the real there is there's also quite serious concerns around the future of the european union of course and the future of some of the major powers in europe angela merkel's term who comes in and shortly micro is trying to become the leader in in the european union but it comes at a time lack of evidence and it's really in elsewhere or at postulating around the idea of removing their own nation states from the european union so they come the real the real risk is my take we've got bucks in the the package the run of the stuff the program around us station isn't just before the first world war and
9:36 am
indeed for a second mobile where the risk is of the kind of you know the rise of the populous government in western europe or else way to russia might lead to some kind of potential conflict so that's a real risk i think everyone you know all powers received trying and trying to avoid done but still you know france germany western europe well absolutely want to avoid a situation where by their death huge security might be placed at risk and traces or what about that there have been a lot of as you would say populace some would say nationalists some would just say a flat out far right leaders that are gaining hole that are taking around and a lot of places some european countries some and south america what is the state of liberal democracies right now. i think they're under threat and things are going to get worse before they get better as i expect the global economy to be slowing down in europe we see great concerns with hungry and poland so it's interesting that this edu that mccrone has put together did not include poland which is
9:37 am
a major. player in eastern europe and so we see kind of a paradox with mccrum because it talks about multilateralism but at the same time he's kind of fracturing the e.u. because there is has to go this organized group within the e.u. and by just working with this coalition of the willing. carved out of some member states only central eastern european or. part of that region is a sonia so he kind of pull it out largely because of. the current government that we've seen an interesting development there with the polish president when he visited the united states he discussed having a camp trunk and this kind of speaks to a much larger issue that poland doesn't feel that other european member states would come to protect them if there should be any sort of invasion from russia so the fact that a european member states is turning to the u.s. not nato but to the u.s. for camp trump speaks largely to you know lack of faith in the europeans coming to
9:38 am
their rescue or to protect them. and you mentioned this a little bit ago about merkel soon will not be on the international stage anymore what does that mean for europe. i mean first of all i think the broader context is that germany has been dealing with its own internal political turmoil for the past year and has been the last year for germany's role in europe and germany is rulon in the world chancellor merkel is weakened as a result once she departs the stage whether that's next year the year there after a new leader will be there the real question is whether we have a functioning coalition government that has a clear agenda to engage at the international stage that can be done without americal of course for experience at the global stage will be lacking but there will be a new german chancellor and t.r.
9:39 am
she will be able to kind of slowly you know fit fill the field issues but the broader issue is whether there will be increasing volatility and instability in the in the german domestic political situation and that would greatly curtail germany's ability to play a constructive role in europe and beyond ok. david. obviously the brics it actually happening in approved is obviously was indicative of some issues that were bubbling up in the e.u. but now that it is it is happening what do you think it is indicative of in the future what role is that playing in the shifting and changing dynamics in the. what i think i mean first the obviously the u.k. will draw from the european union that would change to some extent the nature of the group and not usually because as we've been hearing the u.k. traditionally doesn't like being involved in too many in europe but i think the
9:40 am
real the real risk is the the knock on effect regs it might have it brings it perceived to be a success and that's very much in doubt at the moment there and the there are some some parties some political parties on the extreme right in the secular across europe who will look to try and draw examples of bragg's it's an attempt to remove their you know if they're successful electorally survey then nation states from from the european union city in france of course we've led by million of that at the moment currently call it a sort of and as you know this is always try to draw france and it is from the euro zone in century future in fifty years from the european union it is today we have the the nominee of the league in power we've already talked like germany the rise of the end of the door slam events there's a real risk that the populous parties using sample from bragg's it and try and it tragedy some kind of referendum or at least some votes some meaningful votes on there on the net then donations states' role in europe. i would suggest really this
9:41 am
depends largely on whether or not breaks as easy as an economic and political success that's not given any by any means at the moment and it looks as though really the nation kind of the nature of the u.k.'s relationship with europe to break it will really depend on whether those populists parties in france italy germany elsewhere to try and draw in those examples that are moments i would say you know currently that special in that promise leadership the future of the e.u. is relatively stable it just depends really on how things in over the next few years with the u.k. theresa how. does and if if the answer is yes how how does russia benefit from all of. the turmoil. i hope that's not too harsh of a word but all the uncertainty with what's happening with so many countries in europe right now and and the relationship between europe and the us does russia benefit from that this is russia's long term interests they don't like the e.u. and they don't like nato so seeing
9:42 am
a fracturing as we've seen across europe it's far easier to play member states off each other no nato has really helped keep the peace for all these decades and i think it's a shame it shouldn't be underwritten or if if this group can work together with nato i think it would be a very positive thing but fragmentation is always dangerous. the question is you know old wine in new bottles i mean how much funding that's always the key question where's the money coming from and will it replicate what's going on it made a we no one wants that so russia and china we should speak about both of them together because in the national security strategy of the u.s. they put both of them into the same basket and i think traditionally europeans tend to see china as kind of far away nothing that we really have to worry about but we've seen recent exercises with russia from the black sea to the mediterranean two years ago and last summer in the baltic sea so i think this is kind of showing
9:43 am
europeans that you know russia and china are here together performing these exercises and that it's harder to kind of write china off as being for their way also china's first overseas bases open in djibouti which is right here in europeans neighborhood so i think europeans have to think of a larger geo political landscape traditionally your opinion says they don't do geopolitics but don't think they have that luxury any longer the world is changing the world is shifting that's why we're having this conversation it is a completely different world now obviously than it was one hundred years ago everything is different but could you ever see a scenario where there could be another world conflict a world war. of course i mean we should never rule this out and tourism mention the heating up of rhetoric between china and the us if there is a war between china and the us this will have very far reaching very very stream
9:44 am
is serious consequences saw of course we stumbled into world war one that's the that's the historic history lesson a lot of individuals than expected we got the peace wrong that's what we're celebrating hundred years of armistice and and peace and then stumble again or look into wonder loud world war two to happen so i think we have a resurgence of nationalism and that's reading round for future conflicts so we can't rule it out there but i want you to respond to that real quickly as well when i think i think we can rely on people behind the things that we said we would like somebody with a kind of sense of i guess behind donald trump behind someone like me and that car and i kind of i hope you know first long as we've been able to maintain peace in europe who will we be able to rely on on diplomacy to work its way i'd like to think that regardless of how the rhetoric gets we will be able to avoid you know
9:45 am
kind of a war in the same ways a kind in a traditional that's a loss that will and i'm conflict which involves hundreds of thousands of people if not millions of people what is the risk i think now is more like the kind of set logical war involving some kind of cyber warfare you know the real the real risk to china and us complex ok and teresa i don't see any easy solutions or many challenges ahead but i think we all need to work together and with one voice to prevent and hopefully. continue the peace and we should remember all this on november eleventh salute lee it's a perfect final word thank you all for the conversation restate it very much. david lee's and thorston banner and thank you for watching you can see the program again any time if it is at our website go to al-jazeera for the discussion on our facebook page facebook dot com forward slash a.j. and side story can also join the conversation on twitter our handle is at a.j. and side story from the richelle carey and attain.
