ah. the importance of the latest sanctions against north korea after they were adopted unanimously by the un security council not a big deal. to what ultimately. they wrote a new documentary tells the stories of those. islamic state one of the. ninety five ninety six russians. have reportedly been cleared of any wrongdoing by water that's according to a letter published in the us media. international
line from studio the meaning. of the program. seems impressed by the latest u.n. security council sanctions targeting north korea he says the new resolution is nothing to write home about we think it's just another verse. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing. big i don't know if it has any impact but certainly it was nice to get a fifteen to nothing vote but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will happen well certainly disturbing to hear these words from donald trump in the aftermath of a vote at the u.n. security council that was widely perceived as a victory for diplomacy the words that we heard. from the u.s.
leaders on the floor of the security council were rather diplomatic and favorable to peace and cooperation at this point we're hearing u.s. leaders again talking harsh talking about the possibility of sanctions against russia and against china if they don't comply with the new u.n. resolution if china doesn't follow these sanctions we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the u.s. and international dollar system and that's quite meaningful so now we have these words from trump downplaying the u.n. resolution and many people whose hopes had really been raised for peace and diplomacy being victorious well those hopes are starting to dampen now they're starting to be some some fear that perhaps once again we are in the danger of a global conflict or some kind of war breaking out in the crisis in the korean peninsula could be once again intensifying despite what was seen as a step forward for diplomacy and international cooperation this is just another dip on the roller coaster and saying this seems every week with the war where it goes
up very high than than maybe this one conciliatory talk some cooperation some diplomacy and then more threats of military force and it's really hard to know what to make of this yes we do have a positive that the regional u.s. draft was watered down considerably it was acceptable to the russians or the chinese but then we have this fire breathing talk coming from pyongyang we don't know what the next step is going to be could be the real question is going to be when do we actually get to a diplomatic track that allows both sides to step down and to my mind that's got to be something like the double three is proposal that china has put forward and the russians agree with but is absolutely unacceptable to washington it seems. it's not only the white house those dissatisfied with the new sanctions pyongyang isn't too happy either north korea's ambassador to russia says it's delusional to believe that the north will break under the sanctions. we've been on the u.s.
sanctions for ten years it was the u.s. that instigated the u.n. security council to come up with more resolutions on sanctions against north korea so we used to living in such conditions and we still managed to achieve everything we wanted if washington thinks will bend under these new measures and change our position it's delusional. filmmaker john believes that the problem lies not with pyongyang. the problem is not north korea the problem is not russia of the problem is not china the problem is the united states the problem for the rest of the world actually now is the containment of the united states sections are relevant in the sense to this whole debate what is needed is a peace treaty with north korea between the united states and north korea and the government in seoul but where it's all heading is the most worrying thing of
all. to syria now where islamic states grip over the country is fast loose thing there's no major city any longer fully under the terror group's control one of the main front is there is still where the army is now close to pushing i thought out of the city people have already started to return there after three years siege has broken with the help of russian air power that's despite some pockets of eisler resistance remaining in certain districts. half. od. they told us first don't forget you're in syria if it gets all about it second it's you have to go to bed early t.v.'s banned radios banned cell phones are banned a woman can go outside dressed so that the only thing which can be seen is her eyes
. so it largely built we saw them breaking into houses then they approached our house they were banging on our doors banging and banging first i didn't open it for them but they smashed it down your door inside and smashed up all the things in the house. the myths about you i spent seven days in the jail then i was taken to the chief of the court sentenced me to sixty lashes they made me stand against the wall was a teacher. for the old in the city my next year and i were driving along the main road when a bomb or not a fragment of the bomb hit my nephew and he died we didn't have enough time to save him some people called an ambulance but he couldn't be saying that he died even
before he got to the field hospital. lemond. when we were living under the blockade we had no cucumbers tomatoes potatoes i have all that now thank god we get brochures and food boxes from the red cross we are very grateful to them that much i'm very happy that the blockade has been lifted. and that the front in the effort to rid syria of terrorism in iraq is . also on the back foot. travel to the scene of fierce clashes to film those who have battling islamic state. and the. challenge of any kind. rocca
is now is surrounded by us syrian democratic forces consisting mainly of kurdish militia clashes are ongoing as the terrorists are still in control of several blocks of the city we spoke to the director of the deck a documentary about what the team went through during filming. when we went to make this film we had no idea what we're going to come across we had literally no idea we started to build our story. three points are on the road to rock and the first point was the medical point the second point was the women's point and the foreign volunteers point. was. the one quality that you know it's all of them is the very altruistic they're very idealistic anybody wanted to criticize them they would say well they're coming like foreign militias to fight a war that's not theirs but as long as they know they think it's their war. acting
community every country and it's like people are paying attention for one day two days and acting as if everything will be normal. no that's not what we were talked several times there was snipers usually so the main problems around iraq are snipers and mines and the drones the little drones that isis sons with little grenades so they drop the grenade and groups boards and there's actually one that attacked us while we were not even on a permission yet we were about to go to operation. one of. the grenade exploded in mid-air. so it dropped from it didn't calculate the heart so if it fell lower would be done.
the most shocking story was one that happened. to be morning and when everything got to be peaceful and all of a sudden someone showed up with a huge sword. and started beating random things i says just executed it's true a few minutes or maybe an hour ago. his three kids all of a sudden maybe two minutes later we heard screaming and he just started running into a space just started running there without a rifle just with the with the sword. strikes from the americans because they probably sold them a lot so the rice is. one of the medics that we were filming. we are the only generation that will never say we want to go back to the days when we were young. and it's true. protests have turned violent in paris where people have taken to the streets to
vent their anger at the french president's labor forms which is set to be adopted this month for finalists in separate strikes and almost two hundred bodies have rocked major cities across the country projectiles and flies with at the paris protest. i. was forced out of her. opponents of the reform angry as it gives employers lol power to negotiate conditions limits compensation for dismissal and much as workers' counsel.
only a few months out of the how month president micron's approval ratings have taken a nosedive and his recent assessment of the protestors could deliver a new blow to his popularity. i will be absolutely determined to do that i will not yield in any way not to slack because you're not cynics nuts are extremists. gathered here today to protest against macron and his policies which undermine the very existence of the workers from the spheres this movement is necessary it is the response of the french people who are protecting their rights.
that you get all the you will. according. to. what politicians do you sometimes need to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. somebody wanted. you to go on to be this is what before three of the more people. interested always in the waters of. the city.
welcome back to the program ninety five ninety six russian athletes from nine different sports have reportedly been cleared of any wrongdoing by wada according to a letter published in the us media all t's kate is across the story. this letter was from an internal water report want to be in the world anti doping agency and that is said to be said that going by insufficient evidence that's the key phrase here that ninety five ninety six russian athletes that have been implicated across nine different sports will have now been cleared so as we know this is something that's been hanging around for wasn't the mclaren report they gave evidence of apparently there are occasions of state sponsored doping and everything then has carried on from there but we have had some early questioning as all of them occurring reported the i.o.c. actually the international olympic committee they'd also raised questions about the mccarren report a key point that they had used is how to demonstrate that came up time and time again based on those allegations so that the have been rumblings that some of these
allegations that some of the athletes implicated we're talking about a lot of athletes i mean if you look at how they affected the paralympics all the russian team couldn't go to the paralympics they were fit to be banned and also one hundred eighteen russian plates from the rio games also didn't go so if we look at all those parties the blanket bans how it affected those who were guilty and of course those who are innocent as well have been affected over the past couple of years it's not down to how the process continues going to find these athletes have effectively been given the all clear by wada so now it's a case of all the international sporting federations coming together saying that's rubbish start this let's put our cases forward and get the rest of the athletes cleared. this all comes on the back of three russian cyclists launching a court case against water over their band's professor of sociology at aston university alice cashmore says water will have a hard time defending themselves. why that is the water and the doping agency will want to start for this the very last thing they want is to have to go to court to
defend its. defend its decisions i mean they were you mongol slee big decisions there was only there because he really wants to get rid of this he wants to try to bury this and make it go away now it really depends on just. prepared they are to dig in their heels they presumably have teams of lawyers behind them and it ride to the bitter end and it will be a case where mclaren is forced to disclose his evidence and that will be very interesting. the president of the european commission john cold young has delivered his state of the union address in strasbourg he stated by thanking only twenty seven of the twenty eight members of the despite the fact that the u.k. will continue to be part of the block for another one and a half years for britain instead of thanks he had a warning. look on march the twenty ninth two thousand one thousand the united
kingdom will leave the e.u. it will be a sad and tragic moment. we will always regret this and you will regret it quite suit. at the end of the address everyone got up and applauded except for a group of british army peas among them the hard core nigel for ours but it wasn't just the u.k. members that gave younker a frosty welcome. to the european union is not europe and europe is not the european union. wants to force the european union to become a single state yet we know that the euro is not a success story we have extraordinary levels of debts unemployment and social instability the commission chief apparently didn't take this verbal attack on his vision of europe to well as the euro skeptic m.e.p. harangued him lord young person got up from his seat and left the room.
with the german elections less than two weeks away media outlets have been chasing down russian hackers for him as they assume it's high time to meddle in the european powerhouses vote in a washington post article one security expert is quoted as saying that it just doesn't feel right that the russians have been struck yet the report goes on to suggest that the reason for the no show might be that germany's nailed the art of cyber security yet it also states that no evidence of any attempted meddling has actually been detected artie's jacqueline vega takes a closer look at this story. if you haven't been in a coma for the past year you've likely heard a thing or two about alleged russian interference and america's recent presidential election the cia has concluded russian hackers intervened in the u.s. election with the purpose of helping donald trump when packing and leaking that the administration says the russians carried out connect the dots russia did it and
while those claims were never backed up by any solid evidence just a lot of speculation and hearty assurances that hasn't stopped the world from pointing the finger at moscow and also predicting that the big bad kremlin would do the same again in europe the russian hacker scene is huge german security agencies and cyber experts are alarmed own evidence points to russia that's why we cannot rule it out why we are preparing for a similar efforts to influence germany's election many warned that the upcoming german elections would be a prime target for those pesky russian hackers so security was bumped up and investigations were launched but even a year long search by german intelligence for potential russian interference failed to uncover any evidence of kremlin backed meddling or not though that hasn't stopped anyone from seeing russia as democracies enemy number one a recent article by the washington post examines what sinister implications there could be behind the fact that we have yet to see moscow's hand trying to steer berlin's vote it's just not an election anymore without russian hackers with one
think tank director saying the silence worries him quote it doesn't feel right the article edges that the lack of evidence doesn't necessarily mean moscow is innocent perhaps they just haven't been successful or moscow is simply biding its time and it goes on to say that russia's attack me only be seen after the election speculating that russian linked networks may try to manipulate the vote count so remain alert the washington post even quotes a german security association that works closely with germ intelligence agencies who came up empty when looking for sophisticated attacks coming from russia we did not find any evidence that there are more sophisticated attacks coming from russia in the pre-election period. but that lack is credited to germany's resilience in stringent new legislation against the spreading a fake news legislation that doesn't come into effect until october but you know whatever the article also concedes that perhaps moscow decided to leave berlin alone because they're close trade partners something that putin himself has said in the past. is that we did not interfere in the u.s.
elections so why would we create any problems here we have good relations with germany it's our largest trade and economic partner in europe but he is russian after all think when it's really only become fact when western powers make them so the clear message for russia is you're damned if you do hack and you're damned if you don't meanwhile according to a recent poll three of the smaller parties taking part in the elections have managed to gain support the free democratic party now has a nine percent share. also known as the left party has ten point five percent with alternative for germany a fraction that we spoke to an m.p. from the linker alexander noise here are his thoughts on german foreign policy. the tension with russia began to escalate at the end of two thousand and thirteen early two thousand and fourteen with my dog the coup february two thousand and
fourteen that it was crimea joining russia and at the same time the war in syria with the presence of both western and russian troops germany also has a military presence in syria with recon aircraft a tanker and a frigate and that contradicts international law because the syrian government didn't give permission we are also present in ukraine the west is playing referee at the cost of the ukrainian people warning that russia must be penalized but the west e.u. and nato member states like germany the u.k. and the usa are deeply involved in this conflict just as much as the warring factions. i mean you know since two thousand and eight we've been seeing the end of the unit polar world order where the west can enforce its own agenda we're switching now to a multi-polar world order and it is difficult to accept to coordinate foreign and security policy with other powers like china russia or the brics countries and
respect their interests in the last twenty five years we got used to doing what we want and not caring about international law and now we are in the situation where this does not work anymore it didn't work in ukraine georgia in two thousand and eight in syria the west did not succeed with violently changing assad's regime on the contrary we are most likely the losers there. in twenty sixteen no washington university study revealed that most refugees coming to europe originated from countries that were bombed the second group is economic refugees when the west destroys other economies which are not competitive so we then demand free trade and say we want to sell our goods there and if the economy turns to ruins we don't care about it because these are the states in africa in asia in latin america and we shouldn't be surprised when people packed their bags
and want to come to germany because they want to normal life it's understandable it's. england football association has owning land players and stuff about using public wife idea in the world cup twenty eighteen in russia and that fear they might be hacked in a pet picks up the story. moscow is getting ready for the world cup in twenty eight saying the city authorities are working hard reading through the tourist friendliness textbooks but something they've already done a good job with is why far. anyone who's going to wait for a bus at this stop can use y. find. millions of people use moscow's underground metro system every day.
apart from why five networks that have been out there for ages at let's say cafes restaurants why fi is almost everywhere in moscow nowadays what if the russians did it on purpose like they put off wife i everywhere around moscow for all the world cup guests to use a twenty four seven all in a bid to hack into their gadgets apparently that's what the folks at england's football association are thinking they're really worried about their coaches staff players and everyone else around the world i assume because they even sent a letter to feed their strong advices once you're in russia stay away from public wi-fi be it inside hotels or restaurants otherwise brace yourself for some real cyber trouble twenty eighteen and a increases cyber security of
a hacking concern. so who would take advantage of that kind of snooping. my wife eyes on so let me read into the british media. the f.a.a. is concerned that sensitive information such as injuries squad selection and tactical differences could be exposed were not. twenty four to the winter olympics the biggest sporting event in russia's modern history visitors to russia can expect to be hacked welcome to moscow to be used a new smartphone to browse for information about the sochi olympics almost immediately we were hacked that was two years before the western world started blaming everything on the russian hacking menace so next year what a great idea big hacker bosses go on our guys know what it takes to win elections abroad why not win or help when the football world cup now don't forget to check us
out on social media facebook twitter on our website i'll be back at the top of the hour so stay with. candidate donald trump ran on a campaign that not only question many foreign policy orthodoxies but also lashed out against new conservative views the world today the president is surrounded by men in uniform some call this a soft coup. welcome to max kaiser that is.
looking forward to. this is what happens to pensions in britain don't let this you watch kaiser report. filling in for lindsay you're wanting boom for broadcasting to you over around the world from here in washington d.c. coming up on the show packet tax credit reporting company equifax facing lawsuits over its failure to protect customer information and if a company like equifax can't protect its data what other industries are at risk waging economic warfare china sides with the u.s. on sanctions for north korea after its latest nuclear test but the u.s. is already threatening beijing on repercussions failing to comply plus.
