the luge a massacre that was when u.s. soldiers opened fire on civilian protest is killed scores of people at the time the u.s. military claimed protesters opened fire at the soldiers first but human rights watch never found any trace of bullets in the building where the offices had been within a year the u.s. had launched an all out military assault on the city known as the first battle for fallujah it resulted in around six hundred deaths many civilians including women and children were among the casualties washington used white phosphorus and depleted uranium which according to doctors led to a surge in infant deaths miscarriages birth defects there was also a twelve fold increase in child counts of cases that's higher and seen among hiroshima survivors years on and locals in village are a still dealing with the consequences. that are so here this story begins with their talk and followed when the americans attacked at first i had a few miscarriages and then i had to fight him.
the doctors discovered that it was a result of the phosphorus which was used by the americans. and it does say i have conducted a study based on samples analyzed in certified german lapps which have nothing to do with any political party they found here a new career and other pollutants. in this business tell us how she's a very good student despite her disability when she writes on the board or in her notebook and it is very nice she's one of us best hundreds in.
turn from the terror watch. this summer. and how. it was revealed. there has been little relief for civilians in a matter of years islamic state would start to take a photo old in fallujah bringing with them the turmoil the civil war and even after i saw was driven out of the country locals say that life in this city is still far from normal. and although we came back from the camp to fallujah they told us that the city and its suburbs are clear of these so we came back as we were cleaning the house an i.e.d. went off and killed my sister and sister. and at this neighborhood went through a lot this house lost two women lost a son and the. there was crippled in seeing any official pass by here about us
offered condolences. but the the area is destroyed is not a place anyone would want to come to we stay in our house go to the house in front of us use this road to come in and out of it that's it we don't go anywhere else the area is full of bombs or additional fire look at these flags all over the place which we can't walk here the area is dangerous soldiers have come here set off two or three bombs and left syria behind me is closed off from the flanks are trying to come home but they can't. america's secretary of state mike pompei o recently accused germany of failing to meet the nato military spending target of two percent of gross domestic product however berlin is currently digging ever deeper into its pockets snapping up military drones and aircraft r.t. correspondent peter all that went to the berlin air show to see germany's latest
hardware. this year is an exploit is underway in the german capital poland thousand square meters of all things aviation from the commercial private and military sectors. that just next to me are some of the joints currently operated by the german military this is the current and if we come over this way this is the current t p that's the one that could be equipped with weapons now then made by an israeli company and a joint partnership with the aerospace giant airbus and over the next nine years germany is set to spend a billion a year zero increasing the current fleet of these mini isn't just looking to buy drones from abroad behind me is apparently the future it's called the european mail
now it's a joint collaboration between a silly france spain and germany and the developers all this particular unmanned aircraft told me why those type of drones are the weapon of choice for modern european armies this is now the next step towards the kind of independence in europe and that of course comes them along with a clear push into several. meaning data serenity but also to well when it comes to the real ability and so on also on display is. thirty five now this is lockheed martin stealth jet that's being touted as a replacement for the tornado fighter bomber that's currently operated by the german military and it's not just the professionals that get to sort through the air using this tactical simulator of a helicopter i can even fly a mission over these small children town albeit
a bumpy ride. with me in charge companies from all over the world to showcasing their wares and germany is in the market to buy the country's army chief is already call to hike defense spending by fifteen billion euro by twenty twenty one but opposition politicians to happy with that direction all the pressure being put on germany by its nato allies to spend more on the military this is the wrong direction in the moment there is in the. education and the climate solutions of the health system in germany for example and in the. military . and if you look at the german population german population wants peace so i walk around and. everyone say i want peace so i think the government have to listen listen to the population and we as a left bring forward position and other actors. human mistake just bring forward
that position as well despite those dissenting voices it does seem that the german military set for a funding boost and without a load of new hardware peter all of a r.t. berlin. there's no way tehran will accept the latest demands by washington to rethink the nuclear deal according to iran's foreign minister explain all after the break. join me every thursday on the alex simon chill and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics or business i'm showbusiness i'll see if. sure buying gold as i can go to my goal is like us we don't think he's going to pay you know one was an affair. blown away by the huffing and puffing of the big bad p.r. wolf and then taking number two you've got countries like india that are like one
step one step back the second household sector has all the gold their government does exactly and then the big bad wolf often popped in the deepest part of such a survivor that the government has blown away and you've got the countries like china and russia that have said wow spain twenty four karat gold bullion and the big bad. and it didn't belong there elsewhere. welcome back iran's foreign minister has spoken out against the recent calls by the u.s. and other countries to strike a new deal on to iran's nuclear program as well as curbing the nation's actions in the middle east. the situation in syria and the other middle eastern countries has
nothing to do with the iran nuclear deal the u.s. is making the moon's good on acceptable most only for the people over the room but also for the other countries who signed the nuclear deal for the world community as well. well the potential new agreement which is being discussed by global powers is thought to be aimed it containing around in the middle east may also address iran's ballistic missile tests which have still been conducted by to iran in violation of a un resolution and this proposed by the french president any agreement should also regulate iran's nuclear program after the current one expires both the manual micron and angle americal appear to have changed their stances on iran deal after meeting with the us president. the isn't there may we believe it's better to have this agreement even if it's not perfect and you have no agreement. thank you. the iran deal is not sufficient to see that iran's ambitions are curbed and
contained it is most important to recognize that you run through its ballistic missile program is trying to exert your political influence in syria and lebanon. the solid old robust verifiable agreement that guarantees that iran will not acquire nuclear weapons to denounce it without proposing anything else would be a serious mistake not respected it would be irresponsible longly france thank you. and we should have knowledge of the current agreement doesn't allow us to address all of the issues among the things not covered by the iran nuclear deal is iran's activity in the region. we discuss the flip flop on iran's nuclear deal by the french and german leaders with politics professor from the university of tehran side marandi he believes a move like this will diminish the credibility of both. in the eyes of iran he did more damage to themselves anyone else because iranians are looking at the actions
and the statements of these european leaders and when they see that they flip flop so easily and they try to piece the us president so readily then in future i don't think that the iranians will ever take the germans or the french seriously again they'll know that in future they simply are useless to negotiate with because they have no influence they are willing to bow down to the us president if he demands them to do so so more than anything else the damage themselves because iran is not going to allow any changes to take place in the nuclear agreement when it when the nuclear agreement was was being discussed when. in iran were critical of it they were saying that iran has given too many confession but ultimately when the iranians decided to sign those critics and those who supported the agreement they all agreed that you're on must abide by its commitments over the last couple of
years more than two years the iranians have been abiding by their side of the border bargain and the americans haven't. a leg conversation has revealed the u.s. democratic party's leadership pressured a candidate for a house seat in colorado to drop out of the race he would like to get. i know your fund raising. you guys are selling money. i'm. someone and then i read
primary. you report that. the vitamin had been focusing his campaign on clean elections skull that in climate change and improving the health care system in the u.s. he was endorsed by the state senator last night that was later asked to drop out of the race the house minority leader has defended the move. i don't see anything inappropriate let. mr hoyer was engaged in a conversation about the realities of life in a race as to who can win the general election this is not the first time leaks of pointed to attempts by the us democratic party to influence elections e-mails revealed by wiki leaks show the party's officials tried to use bernie sanders religion against him in favor of hillary clinton both were representing the democrats in the twenty six the race for the white house. the then vice chair of the democratic national committee secretly gave clinton debate questions in advance
that was during the democratic primary but the current d.n.c. chair says that incidents like this are a thing of the past but we're moving forward we have to make sure that everything is fair and open and everybody has a fair shake and that's what we're going to do we discuss the issue with journalist and author daniel lazaro who believes that the democrats are becoming less democratic there's a split in the party between the base and the higher echelons the elected officials it's totally undemocratic. it's smoke and mirrors the base thinks they're getting a choice but they really aren't because the the real candidates at the side are chosen behind closed doors but the democratic party is in the danger of self destructing it's it's trying to think that will win in two thousand and eighteen if it passes itself off the republican lite party. but that's a very risky tactic because the risk is the danger is all wind up needing its base
of support which will either stay at home or vote for green candidates or others who are challenging the democrats from the left so they're trying to try to walk a very thin line and i don't think they'll be if they'll be able to to do it. bridgie right up to date still me for the very latest news headlines and updates on our top stories in half an hour.
in the heart of the swiss alps this is a place probably more secretive than the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for knox swiss customs are here permanently and all the site is controlled by them and they impose the opening times where. it is from stop us the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe masterpieces by artists like pecan so and modigliani i can't boards and sold inside this warehouse so that's where the report comes in that it covers a naturally discreet commercially discreet but also discreet because they concern fraud for some of those paintings are linked to dark secrets nobody knows how many of these secrets a kept inside the geneva freeport says for you'll never obtain an inventory of all the works in the freeport who knows how many there are three hundred three thousand
three hundred thousand is it a matter of confidentiality only or is it the world's black box of the our business . i'm not sure if you were going underground as trade unions around the world demonstrate to remember the dead and fight for the living on international workers memorial day coming up on the show just twenty four hours after nato met in brussels award winning author and foreign correspondent charles gloms tells us whether it was working. with nature's blessing. that damascus in the past fourteen days and we speak to a journalist on the ground in yemen who claims he has proof that american made bombs were used in a double tap strike on a wedding that killed or injured nearly one hundred men women and children well we
shouldn't be too shy about it was the speaker of the house of commons referring to a number three scandal of this week's u.k. pm puce well the simple coming up in today's going underground but first in the past twenty four hours syria was just one of the topics at the nato summit in brussels up for discussion nato nation conflicts from venezuela to ukraine to central africa to the south china sea and if anyone was in any doubt that donald trump has abandoned his america first strategy here is trump's pick for secretary of state on trump's right to bomb syria i believe the president has the domestic authority to do that i don't think i don't think that has been disputed by republicans or democrats throughout an extended period of time actually it's disputed mostly by our founding fathers who believe they gave that authority to congress the voice there of senator rand paul who belatedly came around to confirming cia director mike pompei is jobs which to become the u.s.a.'s top diplomat well joining me now is award winning foreign correspondent and author of
syria burning charles glass charles thanks so much for coming back on a good to see theresa may joining macro and trump and enforcing red lines on chemical weapons in syria well as i recall the british contribution was eight rockets out of over two hundred of those it wasn't militarily significant. but it shows that britain and france will willingly be dragged along with american policy in the middle east and sometimes actually lead the americans to things they might not otherwise have done this good and that leaving in a second but yeah you can say dragged along the prime minister of a very proud it seemed like the country the prime minister of britain went along with it without consulting parliament i'm not sure what the outcome would have been if there had their vote on it well just as in washington where. trump said that he didn't need congressional approval this government. has forcefully argued
and we in fact we had tony blair's attorney general who gave the cause of legal basis for it here on this program would morris saying that in a time of exceptional circumstances a country like britain can fire missiles at an urban environment like damascus no questions well this has to be tested in the courts in both america and britain but it hasn't been yet i think that. the direction the jurisprudence would take because of the war powers act in united states which was which was brought in because of the abuses during the vietnam war era there are restrictions on what the president can do and cannot do militarily abroad in this country because there is no constitution is no such thing similar to the war powers act. there are indications the power should be consulted but maybe doesn't have to be consulted again side from the constitutional matters here in britain what did you think of the timing of the strike i had of the o.p.c. w. inspectors going to do much to prove what mainstream media certainly has assessed many times that it was all it was it was
a case of the execution before the trial the idea of the o.p.c. w. going to damascus and to into duma was that they would investigate and determine whether chemical weapons were indeed used or not and it it should have. there should have been a patient period of waiting to find out what the outcome of that investigation was instead the assumption was as the rebels said that the syrian regime dropped chemical weapons on duma and that was that was seems to have been enough you've written about chemical weapons use in the middle east over a decade a good way of getting rid of chemical weapons as strikes from missiles. flown from will planes have taken off from the mediterranean there has been a great inconsistency in western policy on the use of chemical weapons since one nine hundred eighty during the iran iraq war the united states favors saddam hussein using chemical weapons against the iranians and thousands of iranian
soldiers were killed by poison gas and that's indisputable fact in some in some of that gas was manufactured by plants in iraq that were according to american designs in one nine hundred eighty eight saddam hussein at the end of the war bombed the kurdish village of halabja and at that time the united states denied that saddam had done it it first they said it didn't happen and then when when roberts noted investigative journalist from this country went there and brought back soil samples that were tested important down proving that this were these were chemical weapons chemical weapons in saddam stockpile that they had to admit to the british and the americans had to admit the chemical weapons were used by that they then came up with a story that the iranians had done it was later when they decided they wanted to get rid of saddam hussein that they admitted that he had done it and that was one of the reasons we're going to war against a great inconsistency if not hypocrisy and in syria both sides have used chemical weapons the government and the rebels and there should be
a policy for stopping the use of chemical weapons but i think more importantly for stopping the war itself the by by the best estimate no more than a thousand people have been killed by chemical weapons. five hundred thousand people have been killed so that five hundred four hundred ninety nine thousand people have been killed by conventional weapons supplied by russia iran the united states saudi arabia qatar and turkey syria doesn't manufacture weapons the impetus should be to end the war in the use of all weapons conventional and chemical should say that but the syrian government and certainly britain the british backed rebels deny any use of chemical weapons so does the syrian government as everyone everyone does deny it and there is evidence we know it's been used we know it's been used on multiple occasions in varying amounts it's. been you know everybody says we didn't do it everybody says the others like it but there has to
be a serious investigation a real really serious investigation could be done countrywide once the war is ended well bred noise says it does want a political sort of solution and says clearly that it has i mean the critics here is a britain should have been more involved earlier in syria and when you look at the timeline here twenty eleven really made was talking about an interim government in northern syria britain apparently aware of the libyan insurgency moving into syria the award winning journalist i heard saying that the m i six facilities weapons to syria from gadhafi in libya what do you think of it that so many journalists indeed there are politicians here in britain seem to suggest that britain hasn't been involved in the war in syria and should have been more involved in the military before we get to the political process. the british the french and the americans have all been involved by proxy they have all been involved in supplying weapons to the opposition groups in syria most of whom are jihad as they've been involved in training them in southeast turkey and in jordan and in facilitating their passage in and out of syria this is indisputable and many many journalists testified to
this fact many of the people involved in the program in the early days are gone public with what they've done so that i don't think there's any doubt that the that the syrian war has been fueled from outside so how do you think now that there obviously is a political process because russia turkey iran countries that seem to exist on the radar when you hear some debates arguably busily talking amongst themselves how do you think they will view these airstrikes that we are one of the most suspect words in middle east is process because of the what was called the peace process between israel and palestine which is which was never going anywhere and was never designed to go anywhere it was a way of wasting time i think the so-called peace process in syria is rather similar to the verdict has come on the ground the government is more or less won the war and now there has to be a way to end the war that limits. any punitive measures by the government against its opponents of the future and that allows the rebuilding of the country i don't
believe that the peace process is that they're being discussed whether the talks or in geneva or. have have we're going anywhere we're ever meant to go or what what is required i believe i could be wrong but i believe is a long conversation between trump and putin over ways to end this and adequately but at the same time we have israel of course bombing syria since indeed the air strikes a couple of weeks ago not only by the absence of any they bombed over a hundred times and now saying they're reconsidering the sale of as one hundred more advanced resolve defense systems and how do you think tel aviv is going to respond to all of this if there is even growing recognition the president has won the war in london paris and washington israel has a problem with hizbollah and iran and the region and secondarily with bashar assad because he's an ally of russia of iran and hezbollah they're the targets that they have bombed in syria have been ronnie and connected targets including his problem i
don't think that they are going they want to confront directly the syrian army or we're going to go wage war in syria because they don't have any reason to remember that that border along the golan heights in the israeli occupied golan heights and the rest of god syria illegal under international law. the bit between the illegally occupied area and the rest of syria that deem a line of demarcation which was said in ninety seven for negotiation with henry kissinger has never been violated the syrians have not allowed one penetration of a guerilla fighter of any kind it's been israel's most secure border from one hundred seventy four not like lebanon or like some some occasional penetration from egypt or jordan it's been pretty secure so these raids you could make the argument how to very good deal with the assad regime both father and son because during this . quote civil war jihadists extremist islamists were rude have been taking over
that part of the goal and i it's and they're active in the in the area between daughter and swayed between the sunni areas dead on the and the druze areas the way there there are isis people there are people there who are very active and. israel israeli officials have admitted that they have taken in wounded soldiers that they have assisted those those yachties coming back and forth into israel when they needed treatment so they i think because they are more afraid of iran and hizbollah and i am frankly i would be to. they they are with they're willing to they're willing to provide some degree of succor to the to their enemies ok well we had one day we have m.p. for aleppo of our show recently talking about a truth and reconciliation committee and so we're going to cause western powers aside from the proxy involvement just as other powers on the other side would be looking at the reconstruction what did you make of president saying that france should ever have a long term role here in in syria the outside powers are already seeing a victorious outside and looking to reconstruct france has france has anything but
a glorious role in the history of modern syria remember france occupied syria one thousand nine hundred twenty and overthrew an indigenous government led by king feisal the emir feisal of mecca and an imposed of a mandate from until nine hundred forty six during which there were many rebellions by all communities including the united rebellion in one thousand nine hundred twenty five that there was another expelled and that's michael counting himself out of french reconstruction from going to others that would also but also because of the french and british and american role in aiding assad's allies he may not want their participation in reconstruction for the russian companies chinese companies indian pakistani i mean the countries that were either on his side or were neutral during the war will probably be more active than than the ones who are against it unless it becomes part of the can terminate to have a peace agreement which russia could could impose upon terms that would.
