from cool brisk north in few months. to the warm tranquil to his of southeast asia. how the rains just leaving china and by the east indoors you see those on his way out it's not the end of it i'm afraid you'd think it might be but it's not there's more rain being formal as tuesday is more or less a day off in the far south west or north vietnam when the onshore breeze is light to bring some showers trades and thunderstorms and then a spell of rain develops coming out of the tibetan plateau moving slowly east was that the picture then for wednesday hasn't reached hong kong or shanghai by the time and surprisingly far north the time the year showers are redeveloping of the central and southern philippines and then running into was vietnam now we just had a massive tag go through thailand it's less skies clear and that developed into a tropical site in the bay of bengal but forecasts wise there are still showers in
southern thailand and so on to try and to clip vietnam but the majority of the wet ish weather should be further south malaysia and indonesia jakarta included and a good half of bali of java even if bali stays in the fine looking weather but i did say the circulation has gone to the bay of bengal and you see very clearly by satellite pictures there it is its progress has been slowly west was over the last twenty four hours and in the next two days it will head slowly towards the coast of thomas and sri lanka. the weather sponsored by cats are always. a disease so stigmatized that those suffering a still shunned by society people is drunk on their penley from the realty from their wives and then they don't have a place in the whole war can be done so that they are no longer outcasts in their own community al-jazeera meets the health workers who are challenging al qaeda attitudes and working tirelessly to combat leprosy in india lifelines ancient
enemy on al-jazeera. good to have you with us on al-jazeera and these are our top stories three palestinians have been killed by israeli airstrikes on gaza at least twenty nine israelis have been enjoyed by rockets fired from the gaza strip the vod and follows a covert israeli military operation on sunday which killed seven palestinians including a hamas military commander. new details are emerging about the recordings to he has shed on the killing of sound the journalist jamal khashoggi the new york times as a member of the so-called kill team made
a phone call shortly after the death the newspaper reports that u.s. intelligence officials believe that the paul links the saudi leadership even more strongly to the killing. i saw says it was behind a suicide attack in the afghan capital that killed six protest is they were all members of the ethnic minority group that has ira's and are rallying for greater protection for the community following a number of attacks that name has. the target was this group of protesters. but according to media reports afghan forces were able to stop a suicide bomber before he reached the demonstrators not before he detonated his explosives. earlier on monday there were calls for peace and protection in kabul we actually have raised our voice because we need security if you want security and it's still sponsibility of to government. subjected to discrimination
for generations. the community wants to ensure its voices. or her after a series of attacks by the taliban since last week it is almost five five days that jill would approach to be modest on and so there is going to. attack of taliban through. one hundred fifty people killed but there is no action to take. on the afghan forces have increased ground and air attacks against the taliban in two districts in the southeastern province of gaza me the has are as a shiite minority group dominate the districts they've been fighting the taliban who are sunni muslims. this has raised fears of a spike in sectarian violence in the war weary country and concerns the government
isn't doing enough it's not only. drive the whole suffered the same thing would become plain but it's of the countries suffering the same thing every day that afghan security forces are just paying a high price even day to skew this country the afghan army chief says is already lost soldiers additional ground troops are being deployed to gaza new province and u.s. forces are assisting the offensive by air natasha going to al-jazeera. international pressure is mounting on yemen's opposing groups to end the war the u.n. button and from the latest a cold war for a cessation of hostilities a ticket aliyev on the port city of hervey the assad the amorality coalition is trying to retake it from what the rebels with reports that at least one hundred fifty people have been killed since sunday the home of the reports from djibouti just across the red sea from yemen. fierce fighting on one of the front lines on the fringes of the port city of her data this is one of the largest bottle
so far in the war in yemen although the fighters who control her data losing the strategic port is not an option and they are putting up a stiff resistance. we should have attempted another suicide attack but it failed we are advancing. despite earlier promises by the so the coalition and pro-government forces multiplied through bottles in some parts of the city the conflict has already and to that face in one presidential area is told the city is lie and collected relentless bombardment of killed numerous fighters and this is the ultimate price the pro-government alliance and their sody and their morality but because often the port of data a vital lifeline for millions of yemenis more than seventy percent of yemen's imports including u.n. aid comes through these dogs and. as you can see we're at the front
line close to the port of her data right there in front of you in the next few days will be able to storm the port. the u.n. secretary general and tony harris is warning against any disruption to the port operations. i think that now all the powers agreed that it must be ended i think that circumstances you allow it i hope to direct actors in the conflict can understand and i hope that it happens as quickly as possible because if for example the port of her data is destroyed that would be catastrophic for the whole of yemen . these calls son two for the safety of hundreds of thousands of civilians who are still in the city there now growing calls for a cease fire and peace talks between the warring parties in a sign the u.s. is finally losing patience with the war in the yemen secretary of state mike pump pretreated in a form call to the saudi crown prince mohammed missile man i didn't need for suspicion of hostilities pompei also all parties to come to the table to negotiate
a peaceful solution to the conflict in a meeting in the saudi capital with british foreign secretary jeremy hunt spoke of the need to build support for u.n. peace efforts both the fight and the bother since he added some of the loudest voices in the calls for cease fire could be a while before they agreed to peace talks the hum of the whole thing the needle of this supreme ruler lucia very console of the whole thing is recently described the course by the united states and united kingdom as empty talk in an op ed in the washington post who ruled that the united states will stop the war a long time ago but has instead chosen to support its allies so dead. djibouti. north korea's nuclear ballistic missile program seems to be continuing even though u.s. president donald trump says it stopped and u.s. think tank has identified sixteen head and bases mostly in remote mountainous areas
the report is based on new images from commercial satellites the network is already known to u.s. intelligence agencies but north korea has never acknowledged it roslyn jordan has more from washington d.c. . it really should come as no surprise to anyone that north korea is continuing to develop its conventional ballistic missiles program as well as trying to develop nuclear weapons neither was prohibited by the agreement which the north korean leader kim jong un and the us president donald trump signed when they met in singapore earlier this year and in fact critics of this agreement say that not only was there are no prohibition but there was also no way that the u.s. or any other country for that matter could check up on pyongyang's behavior in either arena now comes this report from the washington based think tank c s i s which says that north korea has been continuing work at at least sixteen facilities around the country including at one facility not even an hour's drive from the
border with south korea that of course is very worrisome because south korea has a substantial threat of north korean nuclear missiles the question now becomes what to do there are a number of sanctions that have been imposed on north korea by both the united nations and the united states but because of the u.s. efforts to try to broker a unilateral deal with north korea on denuclearization there is this sense now that north korea feels empowered to basically step up activities that have been deemed illegal by the and international community that includes expanding trade with both china and russia its two closest neighbors and as the u.s. has alleged for many years two of its most important protectors on the global stage the question is can the trumpet ministration now find a way to not only make north korea stop development of these military programs but
also carry out the sorts of inspections that would verify that north korea is trying to make good on its promise to give up its nuclear weapons program. so italy now when libya's leaders and other foreign policy gathering for a peace conference in the sicilian city of a solid is trying to end seven years fighting and division with so many competing interests inside and outside the country or peace and libya remains an elusive goal john holl reports. the latest attempt to bring peace to libya picks up where many of those have failed with leaders and representatives from thirty countries gathering just across the mediterranean in palermo sicily one key goal here to get behind a new u.n. led election timeline beginning early next year with a dialogue among libyans themselves to decide what kind of democracy they want we want to ask them clearly doing the national conference what kind of election of the
one parliamentary presidential etc and what kind of law do we need because we don't have it all the house of representatives has been meeting all this summer. but it has been stated i let's face it produce here with no go on that effort and produce no legislative little i think we need a wider presentation. when nato bombs helped rebel fighters to overthrow moammar gadhafi in two thousand and eleven it was far from the end of libya's troubles. seven years later the country is divided between warring militant groups and opposing political factions each claiming control of vast swathes of territory the peace conference in poland brings together libya's major opposing sides as well as some of the key foreign powers within three months in the region so fires who heads the un backed government in and around tripoli will be
joined by general. whose breakaway army holds much of the east battling for control of the south. meanwhile are ethnic tribes and cross border criminal gangs while the u.n. backs the tripoli government general haftar has the support of egypt and russia the united states is there to of course keen to bolster its influence in the resource rich north african country libya's difficulties of further complicated by the competing interests of european union rivals italy and france both have energy investments in the country and back opposite sides while france wants to stabilize the lawless south with its proximity to former french colonies in the hell italy wants an end to the flow of migrants across the mediterranean if all concerned can rally behind the new un plan that would be a minimal measure of success here but it would amount to little more than
a contribution to the peace process still a long way from peace itself jonah al-jazeera palermo sicily says for a long time now with the supreme court has been hearing a challenge to the president's decision to call a snap election mighty palace it is then a try get a political crisis last month when he fired and replaced prime minister raanan become a singer when often and as reports from colombo over a dozen petitions were herded sri lanka's supreme court on monday the petition is say president might a palace it is in a violated the constitution when he dissolved parliament in this instance for enough years have not lapsed and parliament has not acted as alicia. and therefore the condition president laid down in the constitution has not been followed and president's act of dissolving parliament therefore is dull and white while the courtroom was packed to capacity people milled outside waiting for news some
heckled politicians prompting police to be called in. at the heart of sri lanka's constitutional crisis is a tug of war between the president who says he's acting to protect the people and public representatives who say he's not when you take the big fundamental of the constitution spirit of the constitution people as it was of the people stop our president is exerting the executive power. in the legislature when there's a conflict between those two i.e.d. oppose him to make up a fight in addition is the people themselves nothing but the people but they're confident that on the basis of the arguments that the submitter on behalf of the people on behalf of discern political parties and on behalf of people who represent parliament and surprisingly on the election commission us one of the members himself has petitioned and we believe that. people will have justice in
a third address to the nation in just over two weeks president seriously and has said he sect parliament because of what buying and the behavior of the speaker of parliament but the speaker he pushed out says as the custody of parliament i have watched over the last two weeks as the executive branch has seized the rights and usurped the powers of members of parliament who were elected to represent the people i call upon all public servants to refuse to execute any illegal orders they may receive no matter from home president my policy to say they insist that his dissolution of sri lanka's parliament on friday was the right thing to do more than ten petitioners who have come before the court behind me the supreme court of sri lanka say other. and it's down to the three judge bench to decide who's in the right. fire investigators in the northern california town of paradise have gone soft and through the wreckage searching for human remains at
least twenty nine people died there and the surrounding area want to shoot this fire swept through on thursday investigators using a mobile d.n.a. lab to identify the dems of the almost completely destroyed the town home to twenty seven thousand people for the south firefighters are still battling a huge fire in l.a. county which killed at least two people and forced two hundred thousand from their homes and bases jennifer bill clinton has this update from westlake village in los angeles county. some of the evacuees here in southern california are being let back into their neighborhoods but have no homes to go back into you can see the damage here in this neighborhood this would have been two or three houses here in a community in westlake village which is just over the hill from malibu where this fire burned fourteen miles deep and twenty miles wide we know that there were two people who are confirmed dead in this particular fire here in southern california
and to the north almost thirty others have been confirmed dead but there are still two hundred people missing in these fires across the state and they've put up photos of them hoping that they'll check in but they do expect the death toll to rise as they begin to assess the damage the wind conditions in northern california are expected to die down over the next couple of days but in southern california and farther to the south near san diego they are expected to kick up and be even worse for three four or five days there are still eight thousand firefighters working on the front lines of these fires four hundred square miles still in flames so their work is far from done. although again i'm going to have a problem in doha with the headlines on al-jazeera three palestinians have been
killed by israeli airstrikes on gaza at least twenty nine israelis have been injured by rockets fired from the gaza strip the violence follows a covert israeli military operation on sunday which killed seven palestinians including a hamas military command stephanie decker has more from israel's border with gaza. it is the biggest escalation between israel and hamas since the two thousand and fourteen war we have seen intense powers's of rockets outgoing into these border communities in israel there's also been heavy air strikes inside the gaza strip particularly in heavily populated areas including the building belonging to a masses a locks a t.v. now we know negotiations are ongoing behind the scenes particularly spearheaded by egypt also the united nations to try and deescalate the situation. new details are emerging about the recordings that turkey has shed on the killing of sally journalist jamal khashoggi the new york times is a member of the so-called kill team made a phone call shortly after the death u.s.
intelligence officials believe the cole strongly length to sell the leadership to the killing. libyan leader. which it's hoped might help and seven years of fighting elections due next month have been canceled because of rising violence. north korea's nuclear ballistic missile program seems to be continuing even though u.s. president says it stopped a u.s. think tank has identified sixteen head and bases mostly in remote mountainous areas the report was based on new images from commercial satellites improvements seem to have been made at more than a dozen of the bases fire investigators in the northern california town of power have begun sifting through the wreckage searching for human remains at least twenty nine people died there and in the surrounding area when a huge fire swept through. and. d.n.a. lab to identify victims of the file which almost completely destroyed the town home
to twenty seven thousand people well those are the headlines on the do stay with us inside story is coming up next thank you for. a european army it was an idea proposed by man held by vladimir attacked by donald trump does europe need its own military and can it do without the u.s. and matters of defense this is inside story.
of the program i'm richelle carey french president. u.s. president donald trump have been at odds on many. issues this week that divide went further when president mccrone appeared to call for the creation of a european army across says europe needs to defend itself against potential threats from nations including russia china and even the united states but it's not just about a fence the two leaders differ on almost every issue trump has pulled out of a number of global treaties from climate change to the iran nuclear deal and recently the disarmament treaty with russia has repeatedly emphasized the need for a global order and rejection of nationalism it made the call during sunday's remembrance ceremony in paris to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the end of the first world war so it's a false. lose that if this vision of france as a generous nation with a vision which carries universal values has been in those dog times exactly the
opposite of the selfishness of the people which only looks at its own interests because patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism nationalism is its betrayal by saying out interests first and never mind the other is your race what is most precious to a nation. as president donald trump attacked the idea of a european army in a tweet before leaving for france on friday this is what he wrote president micron of france has just suggested that europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the u.s. russia and china very insulting but perhaps europe should first pay its fair share of nato which the u.s. subsidizes greatly russian president vladimir putin welcomed the idea of a european army during a television interview. as to alternative european military forces it's not a new idea president mccrone has revived it now but i was told about it by one of the previous run for president it's europe is a great economic power a great economic union so it's quite natural that they want to be independent
self-reliant and sovereign in the sear of defense and security according to the stockholm international peace research institute global military spending reached one point seven three nine trillion dollars last year in europe alone it's accounted for three hundred forty two billion that is twenty percent of the total global spending four of the fifteen largest military spenders in the world are in western europe that's france the u.k. germany and italy breaking this down france's spending between two thousand and sixteen and two thousand and seventeen fell by nearly two percent to fifty seven point eight billion all britain's military spending rose by point five percent to forty seven point two billion last year and germany's military spending went up by three and a half percent to forty four point three billion its highest level since one thousand nine hundred nine. let's bring in our guests now and joining us from paris is we're no it's our chief foreign correspondent
a life ago newspaper and professor of strategy at paris school of international affairs and washington d.c. david associate professor at the national defense university and a former pentagon official and in moscow glenn dyson a professor of a. national relations at higher school of economics from moscow and author of the decay of western civilization and research and of russia welcome to all of you so. let's revisit the words of the man will not grown from yesterday when he said patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism he went on to say our first interests who cares about the cares about the others i mean start with you or no what do you make of. the words the timing the setting. i think what is important is that. i'm a coin paris wanted to defend multilateralism. in front
of trump that actually rejects multilateralism we have seen that for climate change us in that for iran with the scene that for i.m.f. and many other treaties. is things britain macor things that european union is the most important creation political creation of the post-war era when donald trump criticizes. your opinion as being some kind of jail for the nations of europe so these are really two opposite views on that and it's true that. things that they see in american threat not like the military usual military threat because of course france and america are allied in nato
but is things that europe is threatened on the buy on cyber war by china russia and the united states and as a matter of fact you know that the ne the palace in paris has been hacked it was in two thousand and twelve during the presidential election between you know succors yen or on any simple as had been hacked by the american and as a national security agency which has got badgered of twelve billion dollars so yes prison michael thinks that there is a threat of cyber espionage or cyber war from. america to you it all up and he wants you to answer to that but yes ok all right we will we will come back to that i mean just now but i want to put the same question to
david what do you make of. that crohn's words and who else might he been have been addressing besides just on a trump well you know it's very interesting donald trump's unpopularity in europe gives european leaders a real challenge whenever he comes here which is you have to be just polite enough that he won't create an incident and storm out but for your domestic audience you kind of have to show that you're standing up to him but i think that. remarks were aimed not so much at trump but first off at merkel who is fatally wounded and i think that this represents some macross position to assert to put france in leadership of europe in place of germany now that merkel is limping towards a finish line which so listen but not that you want and she'll survive to want to make sure i'm clear what you're saying though not calling her out on patriotism versus nationalism per se not that but you mean just making such
a grand statement in such a setting as that what you mean that's exactly right and the second thing is i think macron domestically you know the bloom is off the rose in france and i think what he's trying to do is use his position as a world leader surrounded by world leaders to try to discredit various nationalist parties like the you know rally nasional marine le pen's movements victor or ban in hungary those sorts of things that's what i think he's after ok all right glenn you actually said that most countries have have both tab a combination of nationalism and patriotism not necessarily the same balance what do you mean by that. nationalism and patriotism they're not synonyms about them across is incorrect in terms of stating that they're complete opposites nationalism tends to to refer. if no cultural identity while a patriotism tends to refer to civic identity so values and moral ety no country has ever had either or there's always been
a balance of both and usually that's what prosperous societies do have they have a they have a balance of both so. i don't think that. this is saying that nationalism is the opposite of patriotism is not correct i think that there is some caution towards nationalism us it's been the source of war however it's worth noting that nationalism is able to harbor some very powerful loyalties in terms of restoring both meaning and security to a people so it's also the reason why countries go to war but it's also the reason why people are willing to give their life in wars as well so stripping countries of this also entails eroding them to a great extent of national identity so i don't i just don't see any country in the history of the world is only relied on a civic identity without a nationalist component not a prosperous country at least but think this reflects this move towards populism because over the last twenty thirty years there's been
a huge push towards more globalism and i guess civic ideals while the nation state has been seen as something to be overcome especially in the in the realm of this project so i think that this is this populist rise is a response to that in which they see the world now as being nationalist versus this global cosmopolitanism and i think that's where trump is coming from and i think that the mccrone. attacking it but i don't think it's completely correct in terms of. putting them against each other and nationalism is also not doesn't contradict their multilateralism either us nation states do cooperate with in a sara lee sharing the same ideals and values. bringing back into this donald trump you know clearly stated recently that he is a nationalist but when it and that's often what his rhetoric depicts right but when
it comes to actual policy. for the most part u.s. foreign policy is still fairly traditional it's not really lining up with his rhetoric right right well you know he trump is not a political scientist he's not a traditional politician so he uses these phrases in precisely and he uses them in ways to evoke emotion rather than. if you go down the line of following the logical implications and explaining that it's a fool's mission i think that his view on foreign relations is that multi-lateralism is fine we're happy to do that but not if it is a vehicle for lesser powers like france to constrain the united states which has not just a great power but also has global responsibilities and quite frankly cannot meet its global responsibilities were advance its interests globally if multi-lateralism becomes a restraint on it and that's really the fundamental organizing principle of trump's international relations it's not america first at all expense it's america.
in order to meet its obligations and american were needed so expect asians so no i mean you mentioned a while ago just at the beginning of the conversation we were talking about the army that men will call for. is it were his words do you think misconstrued it seemed at first that it was you know he was calling for a european army against the u.s. but that's not quite what he meant what do you think he he really meant no it's not to build an army against the u.s. because. michael is agreeing with nato frons has been an ally of the united states of america for the last two center. is and it. and michael will not jeopardize this alliance and we are in a military alliance call nato this will not be questioned but there is also
the field of cyber war and in the cyber space yes europe have been attacked by by by russia by china for you know technological industrial spying and also by america because we know that the it is a palace in paris as been act by the end as a the national to greed in c. of america in two thousand and twelve in april two thousand and twelve so mcconnell doesn't want does. is not scared by any threat of a military u.s. a gratian against europe of course not but it's saying that they see a matter on the cyber spate of cyber war and he wants a strategic answer from your op to the cyber offensives by china russia and america all nationalist regimes i just want
to say that that military at it or they don't like multilateralism as we saw that you were before the second world war we had like germany japan and italy we had nationalized regimes who didn't like and who destroyed and who left all the middle to that terrible institutions of the time i'm speaking of course of let's go see it in a city glenn do you agree with that assessment from a no that that promise talking about a cyber war well i think micron left some deliberate strategic ambiguity within his comment because he obviously wants to take a swipe at. trump i guess they're peons i felt a bit insulted by trump over the last year or so they would like to think that both for the mystical audience but also for a bit of a push back there some incentive to come with
a little insult i guess i don't think actually that the french wants to build an army against the americans of course i would never push back on the european union smelt a lot or listen though it's it doesn't really it does push it sometimes in the global slayer but in the original serious fashion when it comes to relations with russia i haven't really seen any multilateral initiatives if anything the e.u. tends to try to use the collective strength of its twenty eight member states for a symmetrical leverage against any of its partners especially russia then so i think this multilateralism is more on the global fear and david in an article in the new york times that was summing up the last few days paris and there's a line that says no one has done more to break up the post-war global system in the last couple of years than mr trump and mr putin do you agree with that. or agree with the putin part of it the trump one i don't think so i think that what
you're seeing is not so much you see the rhetoric of breaking up but that's businessmen techniques if i don't get a deal i'm walking away out of the rent but dave a look at the actual actions that david yeah hurts words matter diplomacy matters particularly words from the president of the united states he seems to often be tougher on his allies than he is on say russia or blot him or putin yeah yeah that's a common critique and i think it's a fair one but you know the cliche from the election was that his critics take him literally but not seriously and his allies take him seriously but not literally and i got to tell you if you take this president literally you're going to go crazy because he doesn't speak in a litter. no way he doesn't have the precise language of you know of a diplomat he he speaks to america's heartland he's not about scrapping these regimes but there is
a common you know consensus in america why should we be more concerned about europe's defenses than the europeans that's where he comes from but you know prior to the election there was all this talk that was going to pull the united states out of nato you have to desegregate negotiating stances which again are more in common with the businessman the with the diplomat from his actual policies and the policies have not been that far outside of the mainstream of american foreign policy and lattimer putin and says that. kind of likes the idea that mccrone and he's not the first person to have brought this up this idea of a european army why would lattimer putin like it well i would maybe the find it more as a cautious optimism that costs. russia recognizes nato as the greatest threat to its security and i guess an e.u. army would be supported to the extent that it would to dilute the central of nato.
instrument for maintaining a unit polar order so i think it is. possible even army something that would transition the world more towards. a multiple multiple or system which is more balanced and also where security is depends more on compromise and harmonization of interest rather than the collective west to stop such asserting its dominance over over the rest of the world so so i think for that reason that's the reason why i would actually. welcome it i think the. he's also critical of the middle because. the european union also has similar serious some structure to keep in mind that russia's main security concern is study in the in europe we never really reached a post cold war settlement that is still maintained this structures from the cold war and the e.u. to a large extent followed the same path as nato so when we talk about european integration we're largely referring to a series some format in which countries in
a shared neighborhood has to choose between us or russia so they you have a very much this serious an approach and i guess the concern will be if they militarize this approach but that being said it would be a step towards multi-polar construct which would definitely be welcome by moscow it would start to solve this problem but i would say that russia's main objective of us will ever ever says go but show me to construct a common european home this is far from a common security structure in europe but it's definitely the lesser of two evil if the alternative is simply having nato running the show who are no let me ask you about russia we talk a lot about russia we often look to see what vladimir putin's reaction to things are a bit can you put in some sort of perspective. the actual size. of russia and their contribution to the world and it seems that they're often the best phrase i know punching above their weight class like their influence out size is what their
actual footprint is. yes of course in. the wealth of russia of the yield of russia the national product of russia is the same as italy so it's a very strong but. of course russia is a nuclear country russia has got a strong army russia has got a very active and successful we have to work a nice policy in the middle east in russia just as won a war in in the city are and is respected for that by all countries of the middle east and of course russia is considered especially by the eastern countries of european union as a threat after its military intervention in dunbar's in summer two thousand and fourteen of but russia is not considered as
a threat in in more western countries of europe like italy spain france belgium even the germans don't really think that. russia is a threat to them what kind of influence russia has got i have think that it has been like exaggerated people have said that you know russia had an influence on bragg's it i don't think it is true i think this is all english idea of gregg's it british idea briggs it people have said that russia had an influence on the eat alien elections i don't believe i don't believe so and even people said that you know. russia had an influence on french politics yes it's true that magna pen was received in the kremlin by vladimir putin but it didn't help maggie in the pen because she cannot beat him and will not call up in
the presidential election so i i think that russia. of course is is important for the europeans but i don't think that the they said they are a blatant influence on you dip in politics there is a direct influence of russia in middle east east and political years ago and i want to bring you and am for a final thought here. a political scholar from duke said that donald trump is not necessarily isolated in his embrace of nationalism he said but his allies are mostly second tier players like poland hungary italy and not the big guys like germany and france is there a realignment happening as you see it are we on our way to a realignment. well it certainly seems that way well it does depend if this new
populist rise continues but i guess overall what has happened after the cold war was. the east west divide in terms of communism versus capitalism fell apart and i guess in the west we kind of revived illogical divide it by saying by creating a new divided europe based on liberal democracies versus all sorts here in states now what has happened in the last few years has been a crisis in liberalism and for the likes of donald trump they essentially are reconfiguring or reconceptualizing the main challenge in the world so it's no longer in a liberal democracy sources authoritarian states rather they see the world through the lens of. lists protecting the nation state versus. globalist and cosmopolitans who are seeking to undermine the nation state so i would argue that it's a period of excessive liberalism which is now having. a kickback from more
classical conservative isn't being pushed in so i think this is quite significant for countries not just poland and hungary which identifies europe very different than the germans in terms of traditional european values and culture as opposed to the germans who look more of a civic identity but it's also quite important for russia because for the rest of this populist if if the divide is no longer between liberal democracies and us or terrorist states but rather between nationalist fulton's then russia suddenly becomes ill from being an adversary to an ally because it rises us this international conservative power one that tries to protect the christianity traditional european values the family unit and especially the rejects a lot of this postmodernist postmodernism and globalism which comes out of the west ok and that will be our final word gentlemen thank you so much for the conversation we appreciate it very much for no gerard david your righteous and glenn dyson. and thank you for watching and watch the program again at any time if you go to our
