is prepared to support a peace agreement in every way that we can and i don't think it hurts the peace plan. the peace plan will be introduced at the appropriate time there was certainly not any criticism of any of israel's extreme use of force by anyone in the trumpet ministration hamas terrorist backed by iran have incited attacks against israeli security forces and infrastructure so israel is not responsible for shooting mostly peaceful palestinian protesters some of whom were just children shot down by their own soldiers but if you're a place israel with syria suddenly nikki haley's heart bleeds for the dead in far less clear cut situations. yesterday morning. we awoke to pictures to children being carried in the arms of desperate parents yes all the talk about human rights does not apply to palestinian protesters they do not get america's support because they're not protesting in the right country. big protests
in iran the people are finally getting wise to how the money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism looks like they will not take it any longer the u.s. is watching very closely for human rights violations with israel all bets are off on world press freedom day heather now it was all about championing the rights of journalists that is until somebody mentioned gaza we see all too often that journalists continue to take great risks to pursue this important work would you also condemn the recent deaths of journalists journalists in the gaza strip look there are unfortunately a lot of journalists who die all around the world i'm not going to be able to list every single death of a journalist and we understand that israel has a right to defend itself back in april yasser move taja palestinian photo journalist who was wearing a jacket clearly marked press was shot by israeli sniper now if this was intentional it could possibly constitute
a war crime by israel but heather nauert thinks it was self-defense either way she doesn't have time to talk about every journalist who's been killed and apparently his death doesn't fit in with washington's agenda caleb artsy new york. a rift between the e.u. and the us is deepening over the iran nuclear deal brussels energy chief. has reassured terror on that the bloc remains committed to the agreement the statement came during his first visit to iran since donald trump pulled out of the cold. european union did we regret the announcement of the united states listen prompt with it all from the joint complacency of block of action the so-called all nuclear deal there was absolutely unanimity amongst their heads of the government that the union will defend this agreement will
stick to the commitments make and the disagreement looking at the latest decisions of president. someone even. with friends like that. when we were french finance minister bruno lemaire has urged europe to resist u.s. sanctions against firms that trade with iran is good news except are we going to accept the u.s. is the planet's economic policeman do you accept one way domination with no respect for international rules obviously your response must clearly be noted. after america quit the deal us officials told our allies to fall into line and stop doing business with terror on under the agreement sanctions have been partially suspended since twenty fifteen but on friday the european commission launched a process to prevent e.u. firms from being hit by u.s. sanctions european companies will be able to claim compensation and loans if
they're affected france's finance minister added that firms working with iran should continue to do so. we're going to do everything to protect french companies in iran because it's in our economic interest there are dozens of french companies who have lawfully invested in iran and are doing business there and they must continue to have the right to do so. financial analyst shabbir razvi believes the e.u. is unlikely to cave in to pressure from the us regarding iran. i don't think european union is in the mood for listening to washington dick tart at this moment yes mr macron had a wonderful repeating in a washington a. few weeks ago where mr buck broad has probably decided to become washington's pimp in the paris however the other european union countries particularly germany is in no mood to listen to washington on the business relationship that they have
developed with. iran over the years it's not in the interest of anyone to create huge distances between iran on the nuclear deal. the longest bridge in europe linking mainland russia to crimea was officially opened on tuesday it took only two years to build and will reduce the region's reliance on sea and air transport and allow more tourists to visit.
well the first pedestrian to use the new link was full footage of this current which lives in the area but the line has its own social media account where this video was posted and that enjoys a strong following. the russian president was soon to follow in the cat's footsteps making the journey from the krasnodar region to use in southern russia to coach on
the crimean peninsula. so you believe that you were. about to be appears in drove across the nineteen kilometer bridge in a cast truck and team of construction workers joined him for the ride. however not everyone is so pleased about the new bridge and an article in the washington examiner who suggested kiev should blow it up the writer even went into detail about how it could be done pentacle commentator john bolton h. believes the article goes beyond free speech it's par for the course the people who pose as journalists in washington are nothing more then weaponized lobbyists and so when a lobbying firm attempts to get its bills or its or its funding through for new weapons systems or war systems they often call on one of their in gauged
journalists to do the dirty work of saying something publicly that they couldn't dare say and then using the right of freedom of speech in america the journalist can call for anything it wants murder execution bombing attacks on civilian bridges and so on so that's what this is and if we're talking about a new level yes we've hit a new low a new low outward call by a journalist so-called journalist for an attack on a civilian structure. but as whalen's went to the polls on sunday in a presidential election the incumbent nicolas maduro is widely expected to win most opposition parties boycotted the vote over allegations of ballot rigging foreign powers including the u.s. have called the election illegitimate but the venezuelan leadership has hit back accusing washington of trying to sabotage the election and urging photos to defend their democracy against imperialist aggression but you said attempts to derail the vote wouldn't succeed. but yeah they don't there has been
a fist campaign on the part of the trumpet ministration to try and change the venezuelan elections and they haven't succeeded they tried to stop the elections in venezuela but their attempts proved a few times and like i said come rain or shine on sunday may the twentieth there will be elections and here we are going to cost the whole foods. and you know me well the u.s. is threatening to impose new sanctions on venezuela and political analyst gregory will put says that could deepen the country's economic crisis i don't think it's guaranteed that my daughter would when i think it might be a close wote but if maduro when's that the us is guaranteed pretty much to impose even harsher sanctions venezuela depends to a very large extent on oil exports to the united states and if those were to be halted the economic situation in venezuela would go definitely from very bad to you worse that's creating a situation where many venezuelans are saying to themselves well do i want to vote
for him and do it or because i like his politics and social programs or should i vote for the u.s. backed candidate well it's not really us backed but for the opposition in order to get these sanctions and this economic distress that they're going through in order for that to stop the opposition candidate has enormous advantage in the sense that everybody knows that if the opposition or to renege on this without that economic situation would improve not just because of different policies but primarily because of the halting of sanctions against. russia has raised concerns about the safety of its journalists in ukraine itself to security forces raided the kiev offices of a russian media group and detained its director carol the shinseki who's in charge of ria novosti is ukraine bureau was detained on cheers day on allegations of treason. the security service raid last of more than eight hours the
homes of journalists working for the agency were also searched many organizations are accusing the ukrainian government of an attack on media freedom and to monitoring mission schemes released rachel denver from human rights watch says complaints about media freedom in ukraine are on the rise under no circumstances should a government be criminalizing speech and media activities that groundlessly and ukraine i think this is out of line with ukraine's these raids and the detentions are out of line with ukraine's obligations to protect media freedoms there's a there's an obligation to provide some kind of transparency about what exactly is grounding treason charges that an extremely serious serious charge that carries a hefty prison sentence so they better continue to come forward with what it is that causing the grounds for this charge because working for you know working for
ria novosti or having a russian passport or not grounds for treason charge and other organizations have been expressing i think more frequently concerns about media freedoms in ukraine. africa has long promoted itself as a destination pour safari holidays catering to one off travelers through adverts such as this. but it appears the reality is often less rosy safari park serve been looking to expand their territory and a new study claims this is led the government of tanzania in east africa to evict indigenous communities on a wind scale they have actions began over fifteen years ago but tensions rose last
year after twenty thousand people were reportedly left homeless in august and september alone with six thousand homes deliberately damaged some of those affected have been telling their stories. we got to come out of the fight. or not we got the model what's got up like that across up because i want to forget that it woman of him was when i met. about thirty. women are whatever are no we don't but i forgot that while you're. on the go with a come on he's in the money to get an a for like lucky. you know so uniforms or. clothes and the idea was a. quarter why do i. need to know my cousin. in the hope that when i. go to those. who are mom then the one visit to one is over people would assess come over and i'm
a religious glacier an inland lawyers in the name of conservation the government or tanzania has been dispossessed in the indigenous kluges these legislations have been used to be sickly deny them aside their access to grazing lands their access to water holes but not just that it has allowed some of the safari companies that are operating in the area to conclude that the local officials who have intimated who are arrested and beaten in the villages because they have tried to use their ancestral lands we also find that they have been violent addictions and these are all being carried out in the name of toward tourism are some of the noise and in the absence of food it has led to widespread hunger managership and disease the kind of disposition of the record priest you shills are going to not just be forced out of their homes and lands with their messiah been forced out of existence
thompson safaris one of the firms mentioned in the report called the allegations simply untrue but local activists tell a different story. if i look for example what happened back in logan and six government of mixed it people from this our empire times and yet the cost at least but it was the whole solange of our mission and there was where the houses were burned you know all so. excited to go. there was not in the planning where they could be you know when you live in a place you wrong you have structure you have well social services and now you hold to just to do the hardest so if you'll ask me well it was a house where the place. where they out you where you live in the ass hole. on wednesday north korea threatened to cancel highly anticipated talks between kim
jong un and donald trump pyongyang this period about ongoing joint military drills conducted by washington and south korea. there are exercises that are legal there are planned well well in advance we will continue to go ahead and plan the meeting between president trumping kim jong un well the latest comes to spice a recent store in relations between the two koreas in april they held their first summit in more than a decade but soon afterwards a top u.s. official suggested north korea could suffer the same fate as libya artie's broadcast the of looks at the mixed signals coming from washington. we all know what carrot and stick diplomacy is but these these goes beyond that way
beyond there will get private capital that comes in north korea is desperately in need of energy support electricity for their people we can deliver that and as i said earlier this week we can create conditions for real economic prosperity for the north korean people that will rival that of the south talk about extremes not so long ago people were seriously talking about nuclear war those with a penchant for the dramatic really made the best of the opportunity north korea best not make it work threats to the united states. they will be met with fire fury. like the world has never see well north koreans must be sighing in relief instead of fire and fury they're now getting the carrot will they have to do is give up nukes nice let's just hope they have short memories so i think iran is on notice and they are going to have to make
a choice are they willing to go down the path which i think ultimately will lead to greater prosperity and security for iran giving up the acquisition of nuclear weapons or will they continue down a path that is going to lead to confrontation or could the arabians gave up on nukes dismantle their program complied absolutely with every requirement in the end it didn't matter they gave up nukes and then america took back the whole perspire it's a thing we'll see how we do with the rand probably we want to very well with them but that's ok too they've got to understand. life because i don't think they do understand life when life gives you lemons make lemonade so long as trump doesn't take the lemons too regardless perhaps this time
things will be different iran was a one off right wrong i am pleased that the united states and north korea yesterday reached agreement this agreement is good for the united states good for our allies and good for the safety of the entire world in one nine hundred ninety four bill clinton made a deal with north korea north korea could tale's its nuclear program and the us builds two nuclear reactors for it to compensate energy loss gives it a half a million tons of fuel per year and normalize relations they never built the nuclear reactors they never sent any fuel and they never signed an official peace agreement you're seeing a pattern here right perspire it seems to be the carrot except what no one seems the realizes it's for dangling not for tasting that just life they've got to understand. life because i don't think they do understand life.
we started as a continental empire by clearing out the native peoples and other foreign forces then we became an overseas empire by taking islands in various parts of the world and then after the second world war we began a global empire there oh we are playing on the whole bill your term. the united states has always had a variety of tools to use. in its attacks on other
countries. economic sanctions are are often just the beginning another thing you like to do is place some military pressure on the countries that you're talking about and there has to be an effort to demonize that country and the leader of that country particularly in our own caress and in the press of that leaders own country. americans love to think there were intervening in other countries to overthrow evil people and if that's true you have to make the person look evil. and nineteen fifty one ottomans came to power in guatemala after being a looked at by the people in washington the us president received the usual courtesies of a visit. years ago i wrote a book about how the united states overthrew the government of guatemala in
nineteen fifty four. the case of guatemala is a great example of american call for action during the period of the one nine hundred fifty s. when covert action was at a peak. the country lost its legitimate government and hundreds of people lost their lives. those new c.e.o. when you decided as you say to move to was. done. in the elite.
i don't them on a bullock in their own yeah beyond that you know yeoman for them then i remember them. but i mean for one of the really good men you saw a month ago but not. at this time a giant american company the united fruit company owned a huge amount. not so that when they were using was just being held vacant while many guatemalans are starving because they didn't have the land to grow food. i.e. not down we remember gabby on a ride down in the bong and in order that i.

to the united states. by. slim and trim the headers go. up dramatically apart becoming. her particular income we would have at the. very wrong go to him because we're not . going to come in front of him again and i get a whole month. later civil war broke out something like two hundred thousand people were killed in that conflict over more than thirty here .
up their voices your parents are still dealing with their words to steal our people i will spoil the story for the voice of them there. is. so the first one is. that. the government that we don't like shows bad faith by bothering an american company . then we convince ourselves that that company is our geo political enemy. then we sell the intervention. as a humanitarian intervention we only do it to help them we don't do anything for ourselves in fact we sacrifice ourselves. for the good of others.
