this is something that russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov explained in detail while addressing the security council in your book but the movie was that the resolution does not fall under chapter seven of the un charter and does not allow for the automatic use of force if we have heard the agreement that the russian american meeting in geneva regarding violations of the use of chemical weapons by anyone would have to be carefully investigated by the security council of the united nations. the council will stand ready to take action under chapter seven of the un charter any incident which is considered to be a violation of the resolution would have to be proved one hundred percent years before any action is taken to. the resolution also calls for the convening of the geneva two peace talks which u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon says could happen as soon as november the geneva two is where the syrian government and opposition are supposed to come to the table

now speaking at the un general assembly before the vote foreign minister lavrov said the world is now multi-polar and there is no place for unilateral action against other states without collective approval it's in congress or president obama's theory of american exceptionalism which he to fan it on the same stage a few days before our she's given no one discussed that was do political analyst eric draitser let's first of all listen to the side of the u.n. general assembly if we would before i believe america must wait and gauge for our own security but i also believe the world is better for some may disagree but i believe america is exceptional. in part because we have shown a willingness through the sacrifice of blood and treasure to stand up not only for our own narrow self-interest but for the interests of all well obama says the u.s. has quote a responsibility to act but of course it begs the question does not guarantee it's

always going to responsibly think that we should be very cautious about this so called american exceptionalism what obama is asserting is a longstanding principle not only within the political establishment of the united states but within the very psyche of the american people that somehow we're better that somehow we are exceptional and obama is attempting to use that rhetoric as a way of putting himself on a moral high ground above putin above the chinese above any of the so-called troublemakers in the un security council so while it looks to the rest of the world that the united states is a belligerent actor when it comes to syria obama is essentially asserting that no no we are moral we are just and we are right just now spoken to syria's foreign minister on the sidelines of the un general assembly and he says damascus is willing to comply with chemical disarmament program but is worried about possible provocation from rebel forces. we control.

party there's a goal. for shoes that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from it's all on politicking only on our t.v. . welcome back this is our mercenaries drones and cyber warfare may be the only way forward for the military according to a study put together for the country's ministry of the fans it turns out that army chiefs are worried that the british public just won't be sold on war anymore so they're looking at how to reinvigorate the warrior spirit as laura smith now explains. how to sell a war to a british public that's not buying that's the topic of the latest study by the ministry of defense reacting to what the paper calls a wrong assumption that the british people has become risk averse in
9:19 am
a nutshell the paper says it's not that people don't want war it's that they don't understand how it will benefit them so in an effort to explain war better the think tank makes some recommendations. make a large investment into drones suggesting that if people in foreign countries they killed at arms length the british public won't mind so much second use more contractors aka must raise rather than british soldiers to lessen worries about casualties. use more special forces soldiers because apparently the loss of soldiers doesn't have such an impact on the public because that role is perceived as inherently more risky and full something military families are already calling disgraceful reduce the profile of repatriation ceremonies for sessions of hearses carrying coffins straight to the union jack when bodies are brought back from
9:20 am
afghanistan. but a war weary british public isn't keen on having its opinions swayed and is particularly adamant about keeping repatriation the ceremonies in the public they're saying there should be respected for what they've done and we should be aware that it was just more just a. little. thing they can do. publish to write any more profitable. thing basically fishing. it's really trying to avoid war rather than try and make it sound it makes an interesting way the paper appears prescient as it was written before the british parliament voted against getting involved in syria under the immense weight of public opinion but. it seems unlikely that the public will be manipulated into supporting conflict quite as easily as they even the ministry of defense admits that the current a version to war is the result of a people let's better informed and an opposition that's more sophisticated. perhaps

european unity and so on which is always thought that come with currency doesn't make sense it's economic and not viable and all the science at that doesn't work now do you think that brussels currently has too much say over the sovereignty of nations like austria while a candid. perrie's in. each country because each country has a certain culture for and that's in thousands a year as a and each country must. govern down destiny and but on the other hand the european unity would be that people can move freely around and products could be moved around freely but again the currency it just doesn't work now how important to the rest of the e.u. is they selection taking place in austria well. i don't think we will get

american taxpayer said that congressional outrage at the ensuing bonuses paid to these executives in a failed fraudulent phony financial products unit was quote just as bad as the deep south lynching. that cracker on wall street sees a kinship with the way blacks were lynched you know here's what i think black america should do in light of this revelation they should demand reparations for having built the united states of america they are owed by some calculations and this was an issue a few years ago five to seven trillion dollars in cash right now black america this cracker thinks we're not what it is suffering of taking billions in bonus money is equivalent to you building into our culture that he now profits from i'm a victim i was a big feast of billions of dollars a baby this is a meal of victim oh i can't stand being lynched.

state sector by people well and his guests in the latest edition of on the money. i bet anyone who lives in the united states knows a few people or just dismal geography a certain small percentage of the country just can't get the care of those above us but how important is knowing geography anyways what one author in the washington post blogs recently wrote that no one geography really doesn't matter that much he was writing a response to the game where is damascus which challenges people to find serious capital on a blank map he said that whether americans could find secure in a map doesn't affect the wisdom of a punitive strike meant to uphold international orms against the use of chemical weapons and often disasters draw our attention to places we'd never heard of before

like pearl harbor or columbine or syria. but let's look at this way i don't exactly know where person's kidneys are or how exactly they work so by all normal logic that means i'm not qualified to have an opinion about whether we should remove john doe's kidneys my opinion doesn't count because i am kidney ignorant so if you know so little about syria that you can't even find it on a map then you are more likely to believe from a guy in a suit on t.v. that there must be an intervention to save the people there you have no idea who they are or why they are suffering or how to save them but crushed out of that intervention sounds nice knowing at least where a country is on the map as the first step in building informed opinion but that's just my opinion. hello and welcome to on the money with the business of russia.
