weekly here on r.t. international live from our studio with me welcome to the program. this week saw fresh clashes on the border between venezuela and columbia as tensions over american aid deliveries intensify for the swelling president nicolas maduro says the shipments could be carrying weapons and has banned them from entering the country and international efforts to end the crisis have stalled with the u.n. security council rejecting both russian and u.s. draft resolutions. by voting against this resolution some members of this council continue to shield his cronies and prolong the suffering of the venezuelan people the time for a peaceful transition. true democracy is now the can use them with this mind we
have reached the culmination of the american workers treated double standards show over venezuela washington and london have both again robs an entire nation out of billions of dollars in the same time or pushing them to accept a pittance due to regime change as they say you first of all we greet humanitarian problems then you call upon the whole world to solve them we look forward to genuinely free and fair elections and to a government that reflects the will and aspirations of the venezuelan people. you have to do is vote is an excellent example of one of the veto rule is necessary for protecting the peace and people's right to determine their future both the russian and the us resolutions didn't pass the voting in the un security council the russian one got less votes in favor that against four in favor and seven against the us draft was vetoed by russia and china the russian ambassador said that if the us resolution had passed it would be the first case in history that the united nations security council deposed a legitimate leader and imposed another one to
a sovereign country the venezuelan representatives spoke as well calling to stop interfering into the matters of his country the power to be this will has to do with having this when i'm sober i think i'm living that's what i'm people and they behave like colonial east they are planning a clandestine operation against it sort of right out of the same kind of took it up on their force at the same time they are just feeding out of money you see something outrageous indeed so the diplomatic community in the crossroads again the u.n. as thieves members who spoke after the voting called it to all of their colleagues to put their differences aside to resolve the venezuelan crisis reporting in new york treated each other as r.t. . meanwhile hundreds of activists have rallied in the spanish capital madrid in support of venezuelan president nicolas maduro demonstrators waved banners reading hands off and australia and denounce what they see as an attempt by the united states to intervene in another country's internal affairs our friend desires who is
the first u.s. to visit venezuela in twenty one years as the u.s. is likely to escalate the situation. quite clear to me that the united states is waging war on international law now that does that does not surprise me question is what will the. international prize for steve be for the united states will the united states take the risk of a lay grown aggression against. there is a danger of while and it should be the functional the united nations to prevent that. nicolas maduro says washington has its sights on venice well as all of the largest in the world you're sanctions have already blocked seven billion dollars worth of state owned assets to protect itself from this well ordered the state told companies european h.q.
to move to moscow vice president rodriguez told us more about the decision. if at all they don't they will in fact the americans are pursuing a predatory policy appropriating venezuela's assets and therefore violating the legitimate interests of our country violates all existing international investment rooms aswell you are aware of them as well as accounts were frozen and we have already begun to take specific legal steps we hired lawyers to protect our interests primarily with regard to our gold which is now illegally withheld by the bank of england we also began to take measures for when these wells legal protection were talking about the theft of these well and assets which was organized by the united states and venezuela has the right to protect its legitimate interests asked for the transfer of the d.v.s. a office from europe to moscow this is connected with the expansion of the corporation also russian company in that the energy and the fuel of oil and gas together with the european office of. other branches of the company will also move
to moscow. the u.s. has also cancelled the visas of forty nine venezuelan representatives aligned with president it says that anyone who steals from the venezuelan people or undermines democracy is not welcome in the united states process as head of latin american studies at middlesex university says the u.s. is pulling out all the stops to achieve its goal in venezuela. people in venezuela think really the military civic alliance is so strong that crushes from the united states in particular form of this closely on the military literally for the last two three years again and again through use coercion on extortion threads blackmail you name it got those words what is it going on behind the scenes and so far i think oh almost nothing. raises the specter of all shows.
which can be organized irregular forces and training and organized by the united states and mr abrams is exactly the berkeley get it's organized so this is jane concerned therefore that confirms not only won't always be feted by the united states going to school something much more dramatic. a little bolder also grabbed the world's attention this week india carried out an airstrike on what they say was a terrorist camp in pakistan increase in face of the military confrontation between the two.
and the politics and security expert on the line to mistrust sees a foreign hand in the conflict. what we are seeing at the moment is the low intensity conflict on the ground and this is going to go on so what you need to remember here is that all do all of the pakistani prime minister region the indian captured pilot. that is a moment of history hindsight and that has to do with the press exclusively coming from the united states saudi arabia and united emulates which kind of forced pakistan to get the court system there to do neither of these parties want to go down the art of peace and in pakistan the army has the state so there is a military establishment which is their whole walk on india we have
a nationalist in divide his own party who choose craving for some kind of confrontation that barks from who to give it to claxon under marla's in the forthcoming election. for the sixteenth straight weekend palace in the french cities witnessed yellow vest anti-government launches on saturday clashes erupted at some of the demonstrations with the place deploying take ass and water cannons to disperse protesters. according to official estimates around forty thousand people took part in not just
nationwide four thousand of them in paris on friday president about electronic and appealed for calm urging people to refrain from taking the kind of file and seen in previous weeks police made them a number of the rest on saturday up again as a cross waits for the field crisis has since brought into why the anger at the president's handling of the economy. like i said they should at least meet one of our demands to show they are listening to us that we are not doing this for nothing that fuel prices are rising and they were supposed to be frozen where all the prices are increasing in the supermarkets to insure ten percent on products it's the opposite of what we want. well the to be wants him to give the purchasing power to keep the lower back on essential crowd is the greatest the citizens initiative referendum those are the two essential demands this long as they don't give us that we will stop.
the time such as this that people in difficult split will have a hard time surviving on fast salaries i finish off constant and i have a nickel article mass and a message against police violence i have many different messages. this thursday u.s. president donald trump and north korea's leader kim jong un along with their retinues and thousands of journalists descended on vietnam's capital of hanoi for the two leaders second summit the much hyped meeting failed to produce any deal on north korea's denuclearization and the lifting of u.s. sanctions against pyongyang with trump and kim unable to agree on the terms despite little headway being made at the summit washington and pyongyang say the dialogue will continue and as an apparent goodwill gesture the u.s. and south korea have decided to suspend their annual joint military exercises
pentagon a statement says it's being done in an effort to reduce tension and advance denuclearization on the korean peninsula so the drills have in fact not been canceled completely but rather replaced by another set of exercises are to take stock of the second summit . the talks in hanoi between trump and kim were complete failure. trump says the talks failed because of what he says were unreasonable demands they wanted the sanctions lifted. in their entirety and we couldn't do that but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting because what we proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but they were partial removal we proposed to the united states to leave articles of sanctions that impede the cereal and economy and the law of our people so with conflicting information about what actually took place at the meeting between the two leaders we've now got the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped
in hanoi jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing a song of peace as he praised the troops america does not see conflict but if we are forced to defenders we will fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows about in nobody wants to play with you would think that was the utter train wreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donald trump would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's good that the president did not get him anything was a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know they've got they want and gradually they will see they are sanctions regime begin
to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of our economic prosperity that could be possible it's a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly flawed democratic presidential candidate gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming in. and waging a regime change war in north korea so well you know i'm deeply concerned about the fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change war policy might pompei all laid out the washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w.
bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to winning nobel peace prize any time soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok cable mop and artsy new york. the experts we talked to believe the trumpet ministrations. and every day north korea's trust in what type of promises america's willing to make. it was not no deal versus bad deal it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there's a crisis in confidence between north korea in the u.s. you know kim knows what's going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word
around the world trump is going to try to show success. he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions and. in vietnam over over north korean missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter political turmoil he's facing back home. but if we've taken over isis in syria then the question remains what about the troops u.s. troops who are there in syria what will happen with them those are questions that remain unanswered a shooting range in the u.k. uses pictures of a teen eisel bride fatah get back to sparking a public debate long not after this play.
what politicians do you shouldn't. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or something want to. have to go right to be precise this is what before three of them or can't be good. interested always in the waters of our. first. globalization lost its moral compass and maybe we have to put more values into the system and my personal opinion is we have to string some multinational multilateral institutions now we're living in the dark cruel that it's like i'm lucy will scream
having always you know all and come to action there and so we need to put spec to the system and we need stronger leadership and better leadership. welcome back to the weekly in a bid to ease the humanitarian crisis in yemen the u.n. has raised more than two and a half billion dollars at a high level pledging event in geneva but that's well short of the target some of four billion dollars needed to fulfill this year's aid plan some of the donor countries are in fact linked to the almost four year old conflict in yemen either as but it's all as all the supplies.
many said for the no we can refugee council call schembri has joined calls for ten a countries to stop selling arms to saudi arabia. but up about twenty four million yemenis in need of age of some sort either because they haven't received salaries because they are sleeping hungry as night i'd like some children at any or all of the haifa was telling me they go to sleep hungry every other day because they can't
afford to have a meal every day they've been displaced my thought was dying is they've lost their houses there is no safe place in yemen and there's no yemeni who hasn't in one way or another witness this war be it on land and sea and air strikes artillery tank fire it's happening every day across yemen the united states saudi arabia united arab emirates and further down the road at the united kingdom they are the top dollar as they have been traditionally the was most generous in funding where it's our united for yemen but at the same time they are also the most active directory or in directing it with the sales of weapons or dropping off bomb site if you want to yemeni civilians so we're aware calling for an end so the hypocrisy ended up less if you all through feeding with one hand the yemenis to keep them alive destroying their country with the audit while aid is desperately needed they themselves obviating the need for that states through the war through the fighting
through the blockade of of yemen these weapons this fighting is having a direct impact on women children and civilians. who have absolutely lost their way in this gauntlet. shooting range in the u.k. has been branded distasteful for allowing pictures of ice or bride to shimmy in the bag and to be used as target practice the teenager earned notoriety after an interview in which she showed no remorse or regret about fleeing to join a terrorist group in syria one of her images used at the range covered in bullet holes has been widely shared online reactions have been mixed. in a society where hate and violence against muslims particularly muslim women is most prevalent on the rise it's deeply concerning that people requested an image of a real person as a shooting target it's clearly wrong to use photos of people as targets in a shooting they should stop why you are so worried about a traitor or just plain thinking with her poster her i says friends stars three
real human heads of beheaded victims like a football and she wasn't raised remember that show me a beggar was born in britain but took a sister's passport and fled to syria to join idol when she was fifteen now she says she'd like to return to the u.k. to care for her newborn baby but britain's move to revoke her citizenship to here's why the shooting range says it sided t. use bacon's image. the targets provide some fantastic reactions and conversations and allow people to have some lighthearted fun and bring out the inner child in us all the targets we provide do not necessarily always reflect our personal opinions after watching footage of big i'm being interviewed and the lack of remorse and empathy she shows we chose to go ahead and run the targets we also i guess if the use of the image was appropriate. the issue is how it's going to actually impact on muslims in this country and muslim women in particular and the fact that we need to recognize that she whether we like it or not because she is
a muslim woman she is going to inevitably represent something that the people who are going into range people are saying this is something that is going to be targeting muslim women in the second what is more what is more offensive to muslim women the fact that should be pagans picture was at the shooting range almost nobody is going to go to all the fact that somebody is appearing on international television to say that should mean the begum is a vet present state of muslim women in britain that is not what i said that is a caricature. what i've exercised what you said that night if you have knowledge i don't need to actually think about why do you allow me to finish what you allow me to finish what i'm talking about playing that is being made is that a racist environment this is a racist environment which you are a part of which is encouraging the targeting of muslim women she is a terrorist and they're law abiding citizens and frankly you should take that back
you should apologize to muslim women in this country for suggesting that she is like them this is a process of desensitization of children from a very early age and this is problematic because it is saying that it's ok to shoot and kill women in her job because that's exactly what is being suggested in this to call it harmless fun i think it's important that we recover the child advocates on the t.v. channels that we should take military action to get the child by its u.k. who after all is an innocent victim she can take a hike i don't care about this i don't think i did either really so i did she also say it's not true and b. so a fed was there to reason that the moral thing if a small island person is a terrorist it has an atmosphere he'll be placed in a way that would be taken away but for a white person that would not be an option. they citizenship would be taken away he's a donor and under the law to recognize that there's a structural racism that exists through everything that you are actually phrases of
what you would define i think should be i would say of the euro bring her back to defend the grain or add and try her and that's the issue there is an environment of hate that exists i think what we have to think of first of all who are the real victims here should be the big jim he's a terrorist she has supported a brutal terrorist regime the disgraceful idea in the media that we should be seeing her is the fake said i think it's sad and pathetic that it would not be the role of the british state to tell british people what they can call they just cause one or two people are offended by it if we lived our lives bonding everything that that one person found offensive nothing would exist in the world and thank god i live in a country where we're never going to do that. stay tuned for gonzo with max keiser and stacy herbert which is up next here on to international.
oil. for food. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy you confront a shouldn't let it be an arms race and his on off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk.
with our see images and hear things what their doors. are see people who are afraid not see these young some women in these words purposes let's see there are some movies feel. good to be movie. quality of the whole or that is the color of their skin that's all they have borne for themselves and to their white skin. life expectancy in america is plummeting if you look at the chart it's shocking to look at that almost every other country is kind of inching up on. one side of the chart and then as an outlier is the united states is way over here and it's all crashing down from the drugs from the having junk food having junk culture having it's junk politics and fake news it's all fake and fake doesn't sustain life and you see it in the numbers it's clear. the country has gone
into a nihilistic fever that's why i'm thinkin we've got to hit the road and get out of the traveling across america to find what makes america take the show it's in the genius of american hero this is it we point around which hollywood is going to say we're starting last with is we're going to head east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the bee i think i'm leaving now nothing getting more gonzo to me maybe completely different end of this. journey from. california hollywood where the myth of the where can dream i mean heading into the swamp where it all started in say knowledge and love and you know long way in that there is a sort of polarization going on meds in between rachel maddow versus sean hannity and that's an easy versus fox is that causing polarization or is that just on the
news and actually out the real world is on the well when you get down here and you get in touch with the history then you start to realize that the william faulkner quote is really true when you when he said that the past isn't dead it isn't even passed and what we're experiencing right now is just a continuation of a protracted struggle that really culminated with the civil war when six hundred fifty thousand americans and were killed and millions more were maimed we're still living out the civil war that's what you see with this kind of polarized dynamic that amisom be seen fox news exploit and that's what you see with the democratic party really representing the a cell a corridor or. when the republican party representing the sunbelt an increasingly you know the hollowed out economically hollowed out rust belt and trump is just capitalizing on that as his opponents are hillary clinton called a lot of america basically a basket of deplorable but even after she lost the election she said that she won
the winner she won in the regions where they're winning and the areas that voted for trump are the losers and i always think about her basket of deplorable comment because the fact is donald trump energized openly a part of the republican base that has always been there that is deplorable and this is you know the deplorable who shot up a synagogue and pittsburgh the other day the deplorable mailed out package bombs these are people who are energized and excited by the energy that trump on locked because he basically stands at the bully pulpit as the president legitimizes their resentment the republican party you know they've always done this but their dog whistles trump does it openly and you know it was a successful strategy when hillary clinton was talking about was something that when she talks about winners and losers trump said that from another alternately oppose that angle but he said the same thing that he's going to make america great again he's speaking to the people.
