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 has everyone everyone does deny it and there is evidence we know it's been used you know it's been used on multiple occasions in varying amounts it's. really 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 as it does one day political says a solution that 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
11:01 pm
timeline here twenty eleven really made was talking about an interim government in the world in syria britain apparently aware of the libyan insurgency moving into syria the award winning journalist her showing that the m i six facilitated 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've 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 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 this syrian war has been fueled from outside so how do you
11:02 pm
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 the 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
11:03 pm
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 us one hundred more advanced resolve defense systems 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 connected targets including his problem i don't think that they are going they want to confront directly the syrian army or wage war in syria because they don't have any reason to remember that that border along
11:04 pm
the golan heights is radiata by go on hikes and the rest of god's in syria illegal under international law it will be like 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 loss of regime both father and son because during this. quote civil war jihadists extremist islamists were rude you've 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
11:05 pm
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 we have m.p. for a leg 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 will be looking at the reconstruction what did you make of president saying that france should ever have a long term role here 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 faisel the emir feisal of mecca and an imposed of
11:06 pm
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 there was another explosive and that's micro counting himself out of french reconstruction from going to others that it was but also because of the french and british and american role in aiding assad's allies he may not want their participation in reconstruction into 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 impose upon terms that would benefit the the french or the british and americans if you want to thank you after the break amidst deafening silence from the british establishment about u.k. involvement in the saudi bombing of another wedding in yemen we hear from a journalist on the ground about what british. and u.s.
11:07 pm
made bombs and doing to the poorest country in the middle east plus a review of p. and q. is recorded before britain's pm expressed full confidence in their own secretary over the wind russia scandal goal the symbol coming up onto of going underground.
11:08 pm
welcome back as you can neo liberal media arguably attempted ever more coverage to
11:09 pm
top germy corbin's lifelong commitment to palestine with anti semitism the wind rush scandal would not go away calling the u.k. labor leader along with his shadow chancellor john mcdonnell and shadow home secretary diane abbott have an unimpeachable record on anti racism unlike the parliamentary labor party when it was run by failed leadership candidates like this one arguably i was not going to raise this with the prime minister waiting for me let me say to the prime minister do not try to hide between behind me all the labor party when she was warned repeatedly that the damage to her accession with a net migration target was doing do not try to hide behind blairite multiple war supporter yvette cooper is on the record for supporting the tories on immigration legislation and we support measures to bring immigration down that's when pre-court in labor was selling mugs like these money anyway to raise i'm
11:10 pm
a try to shut out the labor right getting on the wind rush bandwagon a parliamentary labor right that is arguably to the right of tereza may i say the rising interval no. nobody is trying to blame anybody else some are actually blaming people we need to drive out institutional racism in all its forms wherever it raises that's actually about the anniversary of the racist murder of eighteen year old stephen lawrence in london but notice of course when appears to alighted with the wind rush deportation scandal about expelling people of color from britain who have lived here all their lives there's an understandable lack of trust by the windows generation so can the prime minister today be clear and confirm that those british citizens who've worked pay taxes here for decades wrongly to know i'd pensions and benefits. will be fully compensated corbett has repeatedly attacked me for a celebrated phrase hostile environment on u.k.
11:11 pm
media in recent days the right honorable gentleman talks about a hostile environment what we're proposing here will i think flushing legal my quince out we are trying to create a much more hostile environment in this country if you are here legally those are not my words they are the words of the right honorable member of the burning of the hall chair only when he was made in a gracious minister. the labor leader oh it's now about this because the right honorable gentleman sits on his front bench yes it's not just blairite labor was supporting backbenchers who have played the immigration card it's members of german corbin's own cabinet a barren plea that didn't stop corbin though demanding a resignation the resignation of the human shield protecting the u.k. prime minister who was home secretary around the time of the destruction of vital wind russia gratian documentation the current two hundred sixty three inherited of
11:12 pm
training policy and made it worse isn't it time she took responsibility and resigned no theresa may try to explain to corbin why if he wants to talk if he wants to talk about issues of fairness if he wants to talk about a government that is kind then let's just look and see what a labor government would be like may said labor would be unkind albeit that kind this was kind of referenced by a recently elected m.p. labor m.p. moments later my constituent to me who lives with a chronic disabling illness has worked all his life until finishing on medical grounds three years ago since two thousand and two he's received disability living allowance but last year was transferred transferred to pip and his mobility allowance was cut yesterday anthony hundred. move. for sixteen years and today he's housebound and fearful for his future.
11:13 pm
of the system means that he now faces a nine month wait for his appeal but liverpool tribunals for drazen may said she was sorry to hear it but if for personal independence payments for britain's most vulnerable recounts of the city bailout there is a way that to raise a may has helped britain money the tragedy is always is the defense industry and the politicians do incredibly well out of war this is my nephew who was injured last night by the air strike he's two brothers were killed. a clip there from marty's extensive coverage of a british back to strike on a wedding in yemen in the past few days joining me now from yemen's capital sanaa is journalist to say because he thank you so much same for coming again on going
11:14 pm
underground the british government have said that their hearts go out to the people killed in the strike but will continue to sell of them is to saudi arabia and the saudis have told britain that they will carry out an inquiry so are you pleased with that that britain is supporting the yemeni people in the saudis will carry out an inquiry i don't see that but it is supporting yemeni people in any way they are supporting the saudis and the selim bombs to the south of the code into the god then they have like that they have increased the says if weapons five times. for the saudis to say that we would investigate this is silly it just gets to imagine his letter saying i would investigate the holocaust how could you ask someone who has committed that could i investigate that but it is hot is not the lord's yemen that but it is hot. toward a saudi pocket and we see them crying about what's happening in syria what is was
11:15 pm
a claim about a chemical attack and it wasn't true and they half they went and they don't and they did all the things they say as they mentioned to protect the syrian people but on the other hand they see evidence of of the weapons used in yemen of their personnel working side by side with the saudis in the operational group bomb in yemen target in yemen given saudi everything all the help block an investigation and this is actually the part that the united kingdom doing in yemen and i'm sure that all yemeni people they hated the united states is becoming as well not the same hatred toward the united kingdom because they smile at you and they stab you in the back or they will just keep giving the saudi money and weapons to go and kill yemeni people major nations would all deny there's any comparison to the holocaust or hitler and the saudis say that the yemeni people are using human shields presumably those people at the wedding are human shields want proof by the
11:16 pm
way do you have the. british or american or from later the nations to say like a human shield that it was bombed in hijack it was like hundreds of kilometers away from the i mean for any frontline. and so how can the how can the host use that area as a human and human shield as as they say the yemeni army are fighting the inside there why they are not facing them that the last wedding that was bombed that had three days ago it was i have posted a picture on twitter it was an. eighty two. u.s. bomb and they found the fragments in that area but in other areas there are as well one of the most dangerous weapons used in the war against them and it's cluster bomb i've been to saga during the war three times and everywhere i go i find cluster bomb as an example i have this is called blow ninety seven b. this is u.s. made cluster bomb i found it in a short area north. east side these bombs.
11:17 pm
children and that still it has brought me this fragment. at this one of the world i saw like hundreds of these across the farms and. in the village like behind their homes so just imagine if a kid see this yellow bright colored bomb he doesn't know what is it he will just go and grab it he will go play with it and if i almost every week there are five to six children either killed or injured by those unexploded. cluster bomb inside that region just imagine britain has been sellin life for the last thirty to forty years has been selling cluster bomb to one of the most tyrant state of our dictatorship on the planet like saudi arabia just imagine how are they going to use them against of course they would use either i guess there are people that i guess any other country or any civilians and they haven't used most of the use of cluster bombs is in the border of north of yemen because they want to make this that area
11:18 pm
hard to live they want to force people to throw from that area so they make a safe zone and this is the over the land use in u.k. bomb using bombs especially cluster bomb because it will stay if not for ten years it will stay maybe for seventy or eighty years and we know that in fact now they still suffer from cluster bomb after about fifty years from the war and that obviously we can't independently verify these claims that religion national inspectors get there britain denies now selling cluster bombs although of course there have been reports of british cluster bombs well some saudi targets. obviously very clear the community in yemen's leader. ahmed was killed this week when the new elected the yemeni hooty leader mother. said that the yemeni people will hold the usa perhaps even the united kingdom responsible for his death you're
11:19 pm
the poorest country in the middle east how can you hold britain in the united states responsible here many people anyway and i believe in the coming days and weeks the whole thing. we'll take a serious step against saudi specially against cities south of saudi arabia and i'm sure that one of the main target for yemeni ballistic missiles from now on will be saudi backbone economical backbone which is the oil field and saudi import and the airport because we know that mohamed bin salmond depend on our uncle for his new vision that he want to do in saudi for the next thirty years if it was not for the oil then the saudi will not be able to buy this weapons this mean that the u.k. and u.s. will not be able to sell weapons to the saudi and i think the whole you have realized that they will now from now on will target on who will target the oil fields and i think if they do and they can this will actually stop the war hopefully but saudi arabia has admitted to intercepting some of the missiles coming from yemen that the yemeni people bail ghibli says in self defense what about the
11:20 pm
fact that while the trump administration says they have proof of iranian missiles the iranian government say this is fabricated evidence where the missiles that the yemeni people are going to get to perhaps fire on the riyadh saudi cities assuming that the claim the u.n. charter self-defense as a legal pretext for such activity almost everyone knows that yemen has about five hundred to six hundred ballastic missile is between short and long ground ballastic missiles they have used only about ten to fifteen percent from these missiles all these missiles are russian made or north korean made missiles which were both by by by previous governments in yemen we hadn't had any war that we have used this technique just imagine for the for the last forty years yemen were buying ballastic missiles and to say that iran is who is sending this missile this is actually is
11:21 pm
really silly i mean the saudi house has destroyed all your money port an airport they have closed all yemen border i mean if it be able to go first. big need for data on the coast of yemen they cannot go more than twenty or thirty kilometer if you go the better they will bomb you in some small boat and sometimes they bomb you like five kilometers from from them and cause so how can you smoke all this a huge amount of missiles into yemen very briefly update us on the humanitarian situation of the british an american backed war we're hearing now the death toll over this period of time is around fifteen thousand with a million with cholera. the number of deaths by saudi direct airstrike is fifteen thousand six hundred twenty in the latest report released by by some n.g.o.s here in in sana'a there are two hundred forty two thousand people who died because of the blockade because of cholera because of malnutrition because
11:22 pm
they couldn't get out of yemen to get medical help because the closure of. port. i mean many many reasons every single. in yemen has been bombed and destroyed and you can imagine this situation who is effected by this is only the yemeni people is that how the effected know they get in more power because they they get more experience how to fight this over the they get more experience in upgrading their weapons so the saudi hasn't actually even used that have gone in this they made the whole. stronger those you had fifteen to twenty thousand fight that before the war now they have about four hundred to five hundred thousand fighters who have experience of three years fighting against the saudi. forces in sanaa so the main effect it is the yemeni is the border people the one who is dying every day. thank you and that's it for the show will be back on monday with critic of
11:23 pm

11:25 pm
regan i think the fire over collusion allegations between trump and russia is a new interview by the russian lawyer who met with trump's campaign officials in two thousand and sixteen she admits to being a russian government informant look at the revelations to see if there's anything new. this comes as the u.s. house intelligence committee clears trump of allegations that this presidential campaign was working with russia no collusion found is the verdict. in other news the city of fallujah struggles with the consequences of chemicals and radioactive materials used by the u.s. and its allies fifteen years this is after the iraq war started. plus the new u.s. secretary of state takes a swipe at germany claiming that it's not paying its way when it comes to nato defense we go to the berlin air show germany's been showcasing its latest military
11:26 pm
hardware. it's not just the professionals that get to sort through the air using this tactical simulator of a helicopter i can even flying a mission over this small children town albeit a bumpy. right with me in charge. with this my name is neil harvey this is artie international. a russian lawyer who caused a stir over her meeting with trump campaign officials back in two thousand and sixteen is once again making headlines now the mainstream media claim that she's confessed to having connections with the kremlin artie's daniel hawkins explains. it started by the media as a smoking gun that would breathe new life into the search of ties between trump and
11:27 pm
the kremlin a crucial piece of the puzzle the russian lawyer who promised dirt on clinton to the time campaign worked with latimer putin's kremlin this is natalia vessel that sky as she was twenty sixteen meeting at trump tower acknowledging that she's a lawyer but that she's also an informant listen to what she's telling us now about her ties to the chief prosecutor of russia in fact a mark that this hear. about them. even in front of seemingly this now adds to the collusion case but what more does this new quote from an interview and what is said to be her e-mail correspondence actually add to the overall picture. well we know. the lawyer who worked for the moscow region prosecutor's office before going private she says she's worked on high profile cases in russia and abroad representing both foreign and russian citizens and when she hit the headlines last year the media was quick
11:28 pm
to point out her alleged links to the russian government from the coverage one could easily think she was on a special mission on the kremlin's direct orders back in twenty sixteen when she met the trump campaign representatives a year on she's in the media spotlight again except resolutes go herself has been open about these allegations in the past i now the general prosecutor personally in the course of my investigation i shared information with him is annoying liaising with the prosecutor's office evidence of collusion according to her any ties with government bodies revolve around her legal work in a professional capacity to twenty sixteen trip was not sanctioned by moscow when i had to have that meeting as part of my job as a lawyer for a russian citizen in the us it had nothing to do with politics it didn't have anything to do with russia the latest chapter in the story comes on the. heels of the congress intelligence committee's final report albeit controversial into
11:29 pm
allegations of trumped russia collusion in which most such evidence was produced we don't yet know the full context of miscellaneous guys latest comments it would seem odd at least to reveal oneself as a kremlin agent having been transparent in the past about our role and correspondence what we do know is that eighteen months on from inclusion even if it's not the latest news can still make a good headline author run to russia analyst martin mccauley thinks the nothing special in the so called revelations that a lawyer sometimes works for the prosecutor's office this. the televisual it is very criminal agent doesn't stand up because as a lawyer she can give advice to the prosecutor general's office and meet members of the prosecutor general's office and as a lawyer that's quite legal nothing there's nothing illegal about it and you can go to the united states and represent a client it's just another meeting and tribune you met her. and he said it only
11:30 pm
lasted twenty minutes they didn't speak about very much if the opposition of. then can find evidence that they were conspiring together they were trying trying to undermine hillary clinton so it's up to them to do that but on the face of it just no duty. or will have to prove that it had other. rover objectives in the meeting and you find it very very difficult. to prove. the new wave of allegations come as the u.s. house intelligence committee reveals it's found no evidence donald trump's twenty sixteen presidential campaign had been working with russia so no collusion according to the committee but the democrats still refuse to endorse the findings and have to continue the probe with more on the report is jack levin. if you've heard it once you've heard it a thousand times.
