o'clock on saturday morning here in moscow you are watching international welcome to your latest world news. saudi. targeted at the defense ministry in yemen's capital sanaa a civilian casualties some of the buildings have collapsed it comes exactly a week after a ballistic missile was fired by yemeni rebels targeting the saudi capital. but i did have her in front of her forces who. had that was just it was not unheard of i'm going to come along was i don't miss out on and then you know from right after last saturday strike saudi arabia blamed iran for it saying tehran supporter who the rebels in
yemen later a senior u.s. air force official said that the ballistic missile used originated in iran and tehran strongly denies the accusation. termini read markings on the business. that's been demonstrated and there are pictures that depict that to me that connects the dots to iran in terms of who's supplying. missiles and that capability from i am going to end that war that we do not even have the ability to transfer missiles to yemen it's the missiles and they've managed to increase the missiles range the political commentator and writer abdel bari atwan believes that more escalation in the region can be expected. so i can. live yemen as they cause more destruction on yemeni ports and their airports and also border crossing so why they are doing that they said we do it in order to
close the holes and sanction against yemen so but the problem is you know that it is and the smuggling of. everything in decides it we're going to be through force all three seed force it is a more escalation and told of the sound of the that american. so i wouldn't be surprised that there will be some sort of attack or military and revenge against it and more economy sanction more may be economy exaction against hezbollah in lebanon we don't know but definitely there is something cocked and being see it on and. so the conflict between the two regional powers is escalating in our holy in yemen saudi arabia is accused of stirring up a war against lebanon that location came from the leader of lebanon's hezbollah political and militant group which is backed by iran. saudi
arabia has declared war on the entire nation of libya did not just as belong in lebanon. the leader of hezbollah actually went on to claim that the lebanese prime minister is actually being held under house arrest by the saudis calling that an unprecedented in for intervention in lebanon's internal affairs and that's because lebanon's outgoing prime minister hasn't been seen since last week when he announced his resignation in the saudi capital and what's more surprising is that harare's own party back in lebanon who is an opposition to has law also think the same thing that he was forced to make that resignation speech by saudi arabia and that he's being held there against his will putting the question of his whereabouts aside there's also the focus of his resignation speech that's something that's also very important to note in that he specifically and ardently attacked iran accusing the country of planting discord and destruction and
interfering in arab countries also warning that the hit their hand of influence in the region would be cut off and in the wake of all of that saudi arabia and three of their allies actually urged all of their citizens to leave lebanon immediately and that's a very frightening and open ended situation you know why should they leave what's going to happen there and here's where you sort of need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture in the region and that's when you have to look at saudi arabia and iran specifically the two countries have of course been locking horns for years and while there's no direct conflict between them it's always been through proxy wars and lebanon is in fact a prime example of that hariri the prime minister who resigned his living leadership was supported by saudi arabia whereas hezbollah who wields massive power in the country is backed by iran and that leaves lebanon caught up in between those two major powers not only its. strategy to confront iran because iran definitely
does not start with a borderline inside of lebanon iran has its own border line they could go and fight their war there if they want to but the fact that they've been on me actually the reason where they can get out or of their intention against iran but increasing tone of tension and no war mongering rhetoric against the lebanese government and specifically not only against hezbollah they are actually warning the president they are warning of the foreign minister that warning the speaker as well that if you do not stop or by other words if you do not abide by what we are telling you aka intervention direct intervention in the pull of a nice political spectrum then we will start a war to liberate the lebanese people from the grip of hezbollah. yemen has of course been engulfed in their own civil war for two years now and in that case saudi arabia supports the government that was ousted in two thousand and fifteen where iran backs the who's the rebels that are fighting the very government
. again same sort of situation they're backing opposing parties saudi arabia is and iran is pro assad so it's everywhere in the region and all these proxy wars are sort of coming to a head it's the fear that this could push the region into a potential potentially bigger and more direct confrontation. based journalist martin j. thinks the recent developments in the region are part of saudi arabia's broader strategy to confront iran. riyadh is rolling out an entirely new plan now to create chaos in the region where a recount and lebanon in that respect geopolitically is an easy shot it's a low hanging fruit there is a great momentum right now as we're speaking this week in saudi arabia to try and create some sort of military strategy against iran to destabilize around or or any
of iran's proxies in the region and the next conflict the next war that we see in the middle east is going to be bigger than anything else before because the stakes been great for wrecked up so high in the last five or six years largely due to saudi arabia's fault it's an interventionist policy in the region we've seen the emergence of hezbollah. and its proxies even stronger iran's growing as bill is growing stronger and more powerful in the region every single day so there's an awful lot at stake and let's hope. that these these sort of instance don't push it into the water tuition. the latest u.s. defense budget proposes the creation of a six branch of the military that of the space corps however congress block the proposal despite approving a seven hundred billion dollars military bill for the upcoming year it amended the bill so that any american military space activities will be controlled by the u.s. air force as artie's but i guess the effort ports air force commanders love the
idea. little did you know this week may well go down in history the pentagon's announced it's weaponize ng space job one for an air force and an air component is to gain and maintain air superiority freedom from attack and freedom to maneuver unlike space superiority it's not an american birthrate yet a resource that plan for the fight for it and when it the hints were all there almost a decade ago one hundred and seventy eight countries voted on the u.n. resolution to prevent a space arms race only two countries abstained the u.s. and israel washington also blocked a joint russian chinese effort to ban all weapons in space after all who's to say what is a weapon. any object orbiting or transiting through space can be
a weapon if that our jet is intentionally placed onto a collision course with another space object this makes treaty verification impossible yet they keep saying that everything that you do has a peaceful purpose take the x. s. y. in the space craft. a jet that could put satellites into orbit on the cheap probably means if you can take a satellite into orbit it can also take our hostile satellite out of orbit who's going to stop them there. last year the us put several mysterious satellites into orbit not your usual kind of ones that watch earth know these apparently monitor other spacecraft
friendly neighborhood watch. the u.s. is not seeking to weaponize space our goal is to work with all responsible spacefaring nations to ensure a safe secure and stable space environment the u.s. air force is x. thirty seven b. which has spent almost two years orbiting the earth its purpose is classified its mission is classified its budget is classified. then you've got the various kinetic bombardment and global strike projects that the pentagon is reportedly pursuing they'll probably say that those a peaceful to sue peaceful in the pentagon the space budget was doubled last year from five to ten billion and next year it's going up this year's budget
increases the eighteen budget proposal increases what the air force is proposing to spend on space by twenty percent and we're shifting to space as a war fighting domain just think of the message these sends ready set arms race. was a frequent guest john kiriakou was invited to speak at the e.u. parliament about a whistleblowing in relation to national security but he was removed from the panel of the last minute for co-hosting a radio program on the russian media outlet sputnik kiriakou worked for the cia for fourteen years in two thousand and seven in a televised interview he revealed that the agency was using torture methods against suspected al qaeda prisoners including waterboarding he spent two years behind bars for whistle blowing kiriakou told to you how he was removed from the e.u.
parliamentary panel on the topic. i was invited to speak on two separate panels at the european parliament day before yesterday and the first one included a representative of the bernie sanders organization people for bernie unfortunately that representative said that she could not appear on a panel with me because i'm associated with sputnik radio and she didn't want the appearance of bernie sanders appearing to endorse the russian media i laughed when she first said it because it was so ridiculous that i thought she was joking and then she walked away and one of the aides handed me updated schedule and my name was was not associated then with the first panel that's politics in america right now isn't it where where everybody blames the russians the russians the bad guys for absolutely everything and and they feel like they can't even risk
even a tangential association with the russians or with anything russian for fear of being branded by their political opponents it's ridiculous it smacks of the one nine hundred fifty s. to tell you the truth i wish that i had better understood what was happening as it was happening but like i said a moment ago i thought it was a joke in the beginning and before i could even process what was going on to object the decision had been made to remove me and it wasn't until i was doing the television interview that i finally said to the m.e.p. wait a minute did i get thrown off that panel and he said well we didn't want to make a problem with the other guests and and i thought wow ok well american politics rears its ugly head even in brussels sputnik and on to you casts about to enjoy the share of naming and shaming a european thing dying recently branded them useful idiots.
thank you. i mean you called me a useful idiot. expressing my opinions on. history. we the time. instead of talking about what's next why stop me from getting this close to the white house i'm with pink why not ban the color pink one hour stretch i should be sent to the town because i'm a traitor we'll put up with this you don't scare me and i'll continue to voice my opinion i'll continue to speak out good company i'm in good company. and while many of our guests are being accused by the west of being propaganda tools europe is now looking for ways to spread its own message brussels has made
new proposals on how to boost the blocs popularity and unity especially in the wake of. the planned. was a thinly veiled propaganda power grab program. seems very much to me like it's coming back to napoleon isn't it you know first they had to be the called slits and then they had the directory and then they had to to call them souls and then they had the emperor.
international the e.u. has a three million euro budget for funding eighty four projects that aim to strengthen its social and political cohesion and the blocs active attempts to challenge euro skepticism started off of the u.k.'s decision to leave the e.u. david told us that creating a european superstate is not democratic. i don't think it's a good idea to give propaganda in schools they want to brainwash people young people into being european well they're not european they're french they're when they're british they're not european and it's no point in trying to create history that never happened european union is an economic organization it's not a country nothing ever happens in the european union that doesn't have a purpose of sole purpose is creating a european superstate which is not democratic a european superstate run by bureaucrats controlled by bureaucrats with
a sort of modicum of parliamentary governance this is not just me not wanting a part of it or britain don't want to go part of it is not fair to all the other nations of europe more or more the french are getting upset about it the germans are getting upset about it more and more people are getting upset about the european union and i think that high time that people saw through what it really is and went back to having individual nation states. a ghost city now these are the latest pictures from the iraqi city of mosul which was liberated from islamic state in. a massive operation conducted by iraqi forces on the u.s. led coalition put an end to the terrorists through you know hold over the city now various officials saying that ninety percent of all territory in both iraq and syria that i sold previously seized has now been retaken but liberation came in a very high price. were.
were. there according to the latest u.n. estimates of the battle for most sole claim to well over twenty five hundred lives whatever seven hundred executed by ice so more than four hundred fifty civilians were killed by u.s. led coalition airstrikes during the liberation campaign i don't most million were forced to leave their homes and we spoke to an iraqi m.p. about the gruesome consequences of the liberation campaign the assad in a minimum of that mean a lot there are many towns line in ruins on the right bank of the tigris river and then of a governorate in some towns but has remained under the rubble all infrastructure there is absolutely destroyed joy in the mosul operation lots of civilians died due to college bombings of the new part of the city there are many children today whose parents and relatives were killed and they are in dire need of orphanages the iraqi
government should create special centers for them moreover lots of women lost their families there are some who survived islip to vittie who have been raped by the terrorists their relatives often turn away from them so that they wouldn't stigmatize whole family video. in germany is suspected of having killed one hundred six patients recent a toxicology tests reveal that the victims had apparently been poisoned peter all over investigates. bills h. drugged patients in his care over a six year period in the hope of being able to bring them back and being seen as some kind of reviving angel he was arrested in two thousand and five and jailed in two thousand and eight on charges of attempted murder but the main motivation behind this was so that mills h. could step in and save the day bringing people back from the coast of death but
he's also admitted in a cop twist that he also did this for kicks there was tension there and in expectation of what happened next it took a while before the true scale of his crimes became evident following the widespread media attention his incarceration gathered one woman became suspicious that her mother may have actually been one of his victims a further investigation led to neil's age confessing to having killed thirty by lethal injection that saw his initial seven year sentence increase to life in twenty fifteen police admitted that major mistakes were made if the clues had been duly investigated or to time even in golden horse hospital then the deaths of many patients in our opinion could have been prevented by august of this year the forty year old was implicated in one thousand murders making him one of more than germany's worst serial killers trying to get to the bottom of just how many he may
have murdered investigators have so far examined one hundred thirty four bodies and currently toxicological tests are being carried out in five separate cases to look for the drugs that were favored by mills h. we also understand that further bodies are to be exuberant as far afield as poland and turkey prosecutors say they've linked germany's noxious nurse to one hundred and six cases but sober through a stupid move. then they may never know the true number of people he murdered people of. over forty years off of the end of the vietnam war and the u.s. has just released a series of new videos of its military operations in the country the photos shows american aircraft are dropping phosphorus bombs on napalm during the large scale bombing in northern vietnam and the video is actually filmed in one hundred sixty five some ten years off of a star war during the vietnam war america did face criticism for its use of
chemical and biological weapons vietnam also became a testing ground for other types of weapons. and. the kurds were people repeller produced the food affects of wandering soul in which haunting sounds said to represent the souls of dead were played in order to bridger the superstitious snipers. who her her.

every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from their exposure from the berm pits woodbridge literally send a v.a. broke and they don't want to pay it so the waiting decades a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they won't have to pay and. call for help and get the middle finger of the beast monalisa. delayed and i hope you.
