3:15 am
quarter past the hour here in the russian capital washington's and russia rhetoric has now resorted to a metaphorical expression the state department spokesperson said to russia was a beast from the deep sea. and went to the streets of new york to gauge reaction and her recent comments to the media state department spokesperson heather nauert had some interesting words to describe the largest country in the world russia has long arms russia has lots of tentacles we imagine that they will continue to have an interest in our. elections but also many other nations elections this fall on
3:16 am
arms and how to describe what it quoted and like isn't it you just that just one of the bees from the deep sea yes russia has tentacles all over the world it's a beast from the deep sea it's rather creative now with metaphors like that you think that heather nauert was on par with herman melville and jules verne but she didn't think of it herself take a look at these old propaganda posters inciting americans to be afraid of the soviet union it turns out heather was just beating an old dead mccarthyist horse we decided to ask americans if they think that russia is really a deadly octopus what country do you think they were referring to. since if it ioannes ireland years later the engine what country think it is no idea they called it the med learn. england. have no idea right there so what is that poster right if we lose like an octopus right what country do you think that's supposed to represent. well it's in red so this means
3:17 am
a communist country is a good russia. good guess russia what makes you think that because it's red do you think that russia might be like a like an octopus yes you don't think of russia's as a as a big octopus you know strangling and spreading out across the planet no i think america's more like octopus donald trump assured us during his campaign that he wanted to improve ties with russia i believe and easing of tensions and improved relations with russia from a position of strength only is possible absolutely possible well nothing paves the way to peace better than comparing other countries to wild oceanic beasts but r.t. new york. taking a stand against her preordained future has led to tragedy for a teenager in the u.s. a texas. the parents of a sixteen year old muslim girl over torturing their daughter saying no to an
3:18 am
arranged marriage with a man who was offering the family twenty thousand dollars. really . he was fifteen when her parents decided to marry her off to a man from another city after her refusal there legibly tried to persuade her with force she run away before the wedding that was reported missing at the end of january this year disappearing off the she left school in san antonio but was found in mid march parents were arrested last friday and charged with abuse of a family member however they were released on bail two days later and police say other charges may be filed in connection with the case. five siblings aged five to fifteen have been placed with child protection services the parents deny any
3:19 am
wrongdoing and stated my possible husband to be is also innocent. said all they wanted to do was to help the young couple build a family together and we spoke to the head of an organization for the prevention of child marriages she told us that some us states which allow early wedlock and not helping matters. unfortunately if you look at the danger that takes it's currently the us has a federal structure where states of different age do not marry and unfortunately in the u. quest like the u.k. like canada do allow marriage of girls under the age of eighteen if in the world today's six hundred fifty million women where married as children then you know that they all didn't run but of course that all cases where girls of being in power away they know their rights and that it will to run unfortunately not as many girls are able to make it to safety as the we would like to see i think it compounds the
3:20 am
problem if the boys over eighteen because then you're talking about issues of. i would say statutory rape because she's a minor but i think more children are becoming more aware that our more services that we like whoa. can get help and support. thousands of protesters have marched on the streets of god as capital denouncing u.s. military expansion in the west african nation. was. that was a controversial military cooperation deal was approved by parliament last week some of its members walked out in disapproval the u.s. will invest twenty million dollars in equipment and training for the country's army deal also includes joint exercises and the right to use the nation's radio frequencies and runways some locals think it infringes on gonna sovereignty. up

to the gun he insists is the most street he's seen by our presidents. he said and i commented that i was government to bring the military. country was. dos is good for my country to be so that is why i decided to call feet. just to be president is the most recent. our guests told us why they think ghana is not getting a good deal. the question here is that the command military be allowed to use united states radio frequencies the united states of america the answer would be flatly no this is a one sided deal on one side of the arrangement but keep in mind as well that us oil giants have been exploring all show or from god and reportedly have discovered many fines in terms of petroleum and i dare say that these u.s. oil giants are also concerned about protecting their investments in west africa and
3:22 am
therefore they would also demand and desire in enhanced an increased u.s. military role. washington really is shrunk from its responsibilities in the world and instead of helping african countries develop their economic power. by investing in infrastructure development group energy ports united states has increasingly relied on military kinetic warfare to fight terrorists and this doesn't work because the reason these terrorists are able to recruit is because of the poor economic conditions at virtually drive the young people into the hands of the terrorists small amount of money. the dollar is facing a new threat china has just launched you one back to oil futures which will

the american economy itself. currently the petro dollar is the only currency used to put ice and sell oil china i know is that and it wants to get the same benefit first by as stablish in the yuan as an international currency. of course. and the petrodollar suddenly it would take time but it certainly poses a challenge to the better of the lot for the first time since nine hundred seventy three when they petrodollar was loach this is aussie international thanks for sharing some time with us today more of the worldwide headlines in about half an hour.
