2:02 pm
u.s. beginning to manufacture a new low yield nuclear warhead i remind you that the topic was already included in last year's review of washington's policy in the nucular sphere even then we expressed our serious concern about the fact that the production of such warheads lower the threshold for a nuclear conflict and as such increases the risk of nuclear conflict. it is the pentagon's newest toy the w seventy six dash two when it is essentially i mean you less baggage less radiation less fallout and most importantly less responsibility i think you started through. major. work and. their research which. cannot be. treated so does not want dominated country and world
2:03 pm
because of other countries naturally this new nuclear arms race is not america's fault but every what outsiders namely the usual suspects since twenty ten we have seen the return of great power competition to varying degrees russia and china have made clear that they seek to substantially revise the post cold war international order and norms of behavior we could of course beat a dead horse and again point out that russia is not even in the same the as the us when it comes to military budgets in fact russian military spending has been for the ng for years while america's has ballooned symbolic as well within days the us should begin withdrawing from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty blaming russia's development of a cruise missile but really gets on the old nerves here is. the commander in chief
2:04 pm
of the united states is unpredictability and seemingly his habit of threatening everyone is we have more money than anybody else by far we'll build it up so we have a tremendous amount of money to play with the military said we're going to develop the weapons funding to modernize our nuclear arsenal so important but we're spending a tremendous amount of money on our nuclear arsenal nobody will have close we're now two minutes to midnight on the doomsday clock on the brink or now officially into a new cold war a nuclear arms race world powers it each other's throats and no light at the end of the tunnel countries will continue to make threats against other countries just like what's happening no. treaty to go she the rule of major treaty to go shushi now between china and united states and the exercise
2:05 pm
sometimes. do put your soul and soul in the same institute early and from a national security. country should like to. know the truth as you consider the country of three hundred three with. as the animosity between us and venezuela socialist government president nicolas maduro has accused donald trump of ordering his assassination. no doubt that trump gave an order to kill me he told the colombian government the colombian mafia to kill me if something happens to me one day donald trump and the colombian president will be responsible. well washington times nicholas lacks legitimacy as president and is actively pushing for his and as for peter king tonight putting his assassination in a patrol. in the city with the latest on the tell me. the things that
2:06 pm
mr moore was saying lately on the one hand it has been typical nicolas maduro furious about everything america's doing on the other hand mr wood door is saying that he's absolutely ready to talk to donald trump anywhere in the u.s. and minister and any kind of format and he's sure that these kind of negotiations will be a great success although he says that donald trump's advisors in america would never allow this kind of meeting to happen so he mediately takes a step back well just to remind you and this is how he addressed what donald trump was doing and donald trump himself just a little earlier this week. when
2:07 pm
it comes to mr gore i do know caracas was forced to act when washington said that it was pretty much handing over the floor choose belonging to the majority government although they were in american banks to the opposition leader and so now . assets and accounts in venezuela have been frozen he's not allowed to leave the country and he's now also being investigated for attempts to assist other countries in feeling invent as well as internal affairs now in response to that already caracas has been promised severe consequences by donald trump's nash. security advisor john wall we know that the u.s. is no alone in terms of support for the opposition leader where other countries coming down and in this in this divide really if we look at the opposition support surely america has been the champion we've got to think the here in this case
2:08 pm
because some of the strongest players of the blog for now the u.k. still in their germany france and spain they have sent an alternate and for mr the door they promise that they will recognize one why go as the legitimate leader of the country unless they cross the door and now is an early election before the end of this week but this isn't enough for one why don't we in an interview with the charm and magazine build he says that he once more helped by the way that interview was titled built means the hope of venezuela. germany and europe for supporting the activists who have we hope the e.u. is serious about the ultimatum is against and reach a conclusion on the situation we can almost be one hundred percent certain that the ultimatum will bite the dust and fall flat because mr meridor is saying the next
2:09 pm
elections in his country won't happen before twenty twenty five and that is the official and of his term asked president by the way russia also had something to say about that ultimatum by some european union countries doesn't mean it's any initiatives to mediation must be unbiased they should come from different players who have an influence both on the government and the opposition plus we have to understand the purpose. preparing the ground for a compromise between the sides must be the only purpose if the goal is to push through what's already been decided there's no need for such mediation russia has been backing the madore. government as the old the legitimate government of venezuela which was in fact elected however moscow has said many times that it's ready to become a mediator in the crisis well just now we heard from the russian ambassador and
2:10 pm
venezuela that so far no such requests have been received by moscow from the opposition or the government so the russian side will be waiting for that to happen before it starts any kind of action. and you were part of antigovernment protests a currently being held across the response to calls from the opposition leader. jonas norris arkell reports from caracas. where here in altimeters square one of the most emblematic opposition supporters protests venue. place is a very crowded today after one waiter called for a new round of protest after he is east investigated by. the government supreme court and the public prosecutor due to activities against the government earlier today we so president nicolas maduro obesity and the troops the armed forces trying to gain their support and so has done one way or who has been
2:11 pm
speaking to the armed forces trying both of them to win. support of the armed forces of one of the most important estimates of the venezuelan politics let's hear what president nicolas maduro said two were russian media after one hold the armed forces to join the opposition forces. it's the first time this has happened indicates just how desperate the white house is they can't cope with when as you well know it's a delicate matter what am i doing i'm fulfilling my duty as a supreme commander under the constitution meanwhile the u.s. government has recognized as the interim president of venezuela and actually congratulated him also today. employ at the u.s. said that the opposition will not engage into any kind of dialogue with the venezuelan government. i.
2:12 pm
wednesday in an effort to maintain support nicholas want to trust the military in caracas the embattled president called on the soldiers to defend and own. the constitution. meanwhile the south declared presidents and void the u.s. is preparing to meet with officials in washington to discuss their next moves against government he has made a point of saying that deal struck between the current administration and russia and china will be deemed illegal by the national assembly if the opposition takes power political commentator john white gave us his thoughts on the threat. well that's that's a violation of their legitimate governments normal trade relations with other sovereign governments it's not just about washington want to his country back venezuela being returned to israel police and now most of the neo cons in washington as a wholly owned subsidiary this is
2:13 pm
a loop to shoot back against russia's influence in the region the americans are clearly what is their vote is going to tell across the way the region but other countries start to see russia is more of a cif bedtimes of gallantry enough sovereignty going to go to change the ability and being a safe peter hands because it has to international look it's a despicable you know split because these are contracts that need to be upheld and the need to be respected they were saved by the countries legitimate government and for this opposition these are these kook lot of us to say that they will resend those contracts or if the managed to succeed in their objective book or through when we do look there is that the spectacle that just speech to home alain distain i make isn't what this is or boat. and his labor party m.p. chris williamson talent art is going in the ground that anything is a u.s. military intervention in venezuela could have disastrous consequences but we cannot tolerate in my opinion is external intervention of the states or any other western
2:14 pm
power for that matter we've seen where they sense in the past haven't we are both on the continent of latin america and elsewhere in the world this is the same old playbook and you know it always ends in a disaster and i'm not saying you know clearly there must be problems right now but i tell you what they could get a hell of a lot worse and what we could end up with is a bloody civil war a bloody civil war actually with u.s. ground troops involved in that they speak with forked tongue in my opinion those who are claiming to you know be concerned about the plight of poor venezuelans because what they are doing they are they are taking or supporting a path that will impoverish and potentially cost the lives of hundreds of thousands if not millions of venezuelans. the former head of starbucks has announced he is considering running for the u.s. president saying next year took a swipe at president trump and also who was quick to fire back. we're living at a most fragile time not only the fact that this president is not qualified to be
2:15 pm
the president but the fact that both parties are consistently not doing what's necessary and be here for the american people howard schultz doesn't have the guts to run for president watched him on sixty minutes last night and i agree with him that he's not the smartest person besides america already has that are in the hope that starbucks is still paying me their runs in trump tower mr shill says allowed by the democrats as well who fear the independent candidate could split their voters. i want to see a miracle when i don't care if you're a democrat in the pen the libertarian republican bring me your ideas his critics have called for a boycott of starbucks and urging people to get their coffee elsewhere there are people in new york what they thought about howard schultz his chances of becoming the next american. he has
2:16 pm
a right to run like he wants to run i think that he could do just as bit of a job as a president now i feel like you need some sort of experience with like a public office i think he definitely would have a lot of people who would be interested in seeing what he has to say. spectacularly if he's trying to bring down trump and you divide the ticket that he could easily lead. with a minority of the vote if you ran as an independent it would really hurt. it would help trump chances of getting reelected i think it will actually hurt trump. over the excessive for sure i don't know why people would say that just because he's running for president is mission boycott him i don't believe in boycotts of anything i think people should have their opinions and be able to do what they want to in a free country i think that seems a rather pointless idea to go on in this town for printing told us why she believes in many democrats and so our agree about allows and. now if you look historically
2:17 pm
at u.s. presidential elections in most of these campaigns historically third party candidates independents libertarians other parties they generally are not successful they end up splitting away from the opposing base and so we have seen that historically however twenty twenty is looking to shape up to be a different year frankly and almost ironically because of what donald trump has done in the white house which is change the way things are going change in a lot of the narrative so what we're seeing here is actually the hate for donald trump from the democratic party that spilling over on to howard schultz for the democrats they think that anybody that could take away from their shot should be donald trump in two thousand and twenty anybody that might take away from that anybody that might run as an independent and take away votes from the democrats because they would be voting for an independent any of that they could leave donald trump in power the democrats are going to hate they're going to come after them they're going to be angry they're going to be afraid so that's why we're seeing
2:18 pm
some of the animosity now coming out against howard schultz because of because that he's mentioned wanting to run as an independent. it was a day of small victories to british prime minister choose day as m.p.'s voted on amendments to the breaks it did in parliament however it could all be short lived with the seemingly unwilling to take negotiations. all the. more developments from westminster we'll go live to our europe correspondent been to all of the peter how it has been reacting to the latest news. plenty of reaction from europe to that vote in the house of commons on tuesday night i'll start with those messages that were all message that was supportive for theresa may the reason i say message is there is only one the german chancellor's office here in berlin putting out a statement saying that angle of merkel held a phone call with the polish prime minister in which both said they were committed to trying to find a deal to avoid the dreaded no deal break that however in the european parliament
2:19 pm
we heard from michel barnier a chief negotiator on break this he said well the blame game that's going on inside british politics needs to stop and focus really needs to be found on finding a solution to the break that problems to the break this impasse we also heard from any piece like l m r block he said that that in fighting has to stop. as well adding the same message younker the european commission president said there was going to be no renegotiation on the withdrawal agreement he said that when it came to the irish backstops they were committed to not allowing the island to slip back into the troubles of the past that the backstop has to be a safety net it was a safety net that they didn't want to use but it had to be a safety net that worked he also pointed out that the whole reason for needing the backstop was to protect red lines that had been put in place by the british side of
2:20 pm
the negotiators he also sent out a warning to those voices in britain suggesting that the e.u. may abandon island over this issue yes you sometimes from time to time i have to push. some hope to other countries. at the last minute but this is not a game. is it is simple but. it goes to the heart of what being a member of your puny union. border issue. well simon cove me the irish deputy prime minister the irish foreign minister has also been speaking on wednesday saying that there's no alternative to the backstop as it's written in the withdrawal agreement right now he also said there would be no reopening of negotiations so jeremy corbin and his team have been meeting with to reason may and her team this meeting took place on wednesday and the prime
2:21 pm
minister's office in the houses of parliament not at number ten downing street nor visit to the the official residence for jeremy corbyn and his opposition they were supposed to be trying to have talks about how they could take the country forward together but before they went into those talks this is how they were talking to one another in parliament. could you set out today what police alternative arrangements might be nasty night house. set a clear direction on the way that house could agree a deal and that's what i and that is about dealing is the rise of the gentleman says with the issue of the backstop as i said yesterday there are a number of proposals for how that could be done none of that was very clear to me you are going to really want to i want to be nice mr speaker it would have been really nice of the prime minister to acknowledge that she did we're program please to try and support no deal and was defeated on that i mean absolutely clear is my contacts with the european union leaders is that they want to deal what this house
2:22 pm
voted for last night no sign of a break in the impasse as of yet but one piece of news coming through to a song wednesday evening from the european side is that even if it goes to the no deal the thirty nine billion pound breaks that divorce bill as it's being called will still be old start it won't be written off at all so even if there is a note that they're still going to have to be money paid to brussels. thanks to all of their parting from berlin with an update on the latest twists and turns of the break thank you. we discuss this further now with alan scad emeritus professor of international history as the london school of economics thanks for coming on the program how likely is it that the e.u. will change its position and into negotiations with theresa may on a deal now they've said it's unlikely they said they are going to move what are your thoughts on this now. well it does look as if she's running into
2:23 pm
a brick wall everybody's more let's everyone's not willing to open up the withdrawal that we when they're not going to negotiate. particular sense of this particular diplomatic problem are absolutely adamant that they don't want to renegotiate. the french bashing and very strongly. that's the official position whether or not all. whether or not that will stick i don't know. if i call and. the polish prime minister i've got some idea that they can open up negotiations could see a way forward there might be some light at the end of the tunnel however he. doesn't like it and until merkel through some way to run door will make some public
2:24 pm
state would i counted you see that. the cases i actually stalled. yeah i mean if you look at the amendments one of them was passed was that an alternative to the backstop have to come to fruition what what is a viable alternative in your opinion alan. gould ill turn this be to check any goods around him away from the board to the you know this is done in many cases already they could check on stuff going which is cross the border you know twenty thirty miles before it arrives there they could also digitalize a lot of the paperwork and an old the. the facilities of the need for that it's already there. the software already exists as a could digitalize
2:25 pm
a great deal of it and then they could just you know trust. a number of people to take the goods back and forth across the board and like the eighty they could. charge them off to would some in the collect be eighty and different things there already is a border there are differences between the republican the north of bond and. all these differences on tax on diesel via timor have you alone easily coped with say. they could just trust the people going back and forth and collect collect taxes later it could be like income tax in this country you put in your declarations and the income tax you know digitally. it's ok but that might take about three or four months yeah look problem alan the problem problem is you know again if we look at the negotiations the position has
2:26 pm
been the withdrawal agreement stands and part of the withdrawal agreement is the backstop was the most likely scenario if the e.u. does refuse as they've said to negotiate on this issue. well she's due to go back to the house of commons and bought two weeks' time. if nothing else happened then she'll just off report that nothing's happened and then m.p.'s will again trying to mend the neutral motion that should put in front of paul but. if there is some movement then i think she'll play on that and go back to brussels yet another time and meanwhile we will get closer and closer to the exit twenty ninth of last and. probably will leave without a deal if they don't actually agree to one. last try to extend to fifty which is the mechanism by which we leave but that failed in the house of commons
2:27 pm
might succeed the second. twenty seven member states and the european parliament would have to agree to that and they said they want to extend all to fifty just for the sake of biggest say sions they would have to see a proper plan and the real thing is no one has a proper alternative plan to the government except even without a deal. when even that alan alan scott. is a professor of international history at london school of economics thanks very much for coming on to the prime thank you. with divisions going up a banks a ten year a skeptic party is gaining momentum across the european union some politicians have been renewing clueless for unity now i feel is sold on it by.
