8:06 pm
however does see the problem and tyrion is just haven't been able to really think through the consequences of the way in which they approached and who have visited charge of nominal charge the government is faced with this some palatable difficult situation for the foreseeable future something is going to have to be done in the next two days to make politicians start to really genuinely work together to get some kind of decency out of this chaos. breaks that countdown. has been twenty years since tensions between the irish republican army and british security forces subsided but u.k. police have now launched an investigation after a man allegedly representing a republican organization calling itself the ira claimed responsibility for posting

country on a math blackout president maturer says the power cut. with the results of cyber attacks by the united states and decide to saboteurs work or trying to damage a hydroelectric dam he was the last to russia china and the un for help in investigating the alleged attack on the power grid earlier this week the national assembly approved decree other state of emergency while the u.s. threatens venezuela with a new round of sanctions and president has issued an ultimatum to u.s. diplomats telling them to leave within seventy two hours meanwhile growing doe's ses outside help would be appreciated is also called for protests across the country asking people to rally against the darkness they did. i know it sounds harsh in a venezuela that is bleeding today that is suffering to say that we are doing well i know that sounds tough but it is so obvious that we aren't saying it because of
8:10 pm
the country situation because we know the situation in the country is critical we know it is critical and have condemned it and we have a proposal to improve it when we say that it is because we are united when we see it it is because we are going all out to achieve venezuela's freedom we will not tremble when we make those decisions. u.s. national security adviser john bolton says the u.s. military will take responsibility for protecting the venezuelan people this comes after several days of venezuelan workers being told to stay at home because of the blackouts but washington had a different approach when a power outage struck closer to home donald corso has more. u.s. senator marco rubio has been openly expressing his extreme concern over the situation in venezuela and when the blackout took place he just could not ignore it the nation wide power failure in venezuela no go in known as twenty fifth hours comes in devastating long term economic damage in the blink of an eye the county's

entire island many improved auction capacity was destroyed by damage caused by the blackout but he was soon reminded about another much longer blackout one a bit closer to home puerto rico's eleven month long crisis became the longest blackout in u.s. history and the second longest worldwide at the time unlike in venezuela it was caused by a hurricane named maria and back then rubio went to puerto rico and had this to say i shouldn't say surprised but certainly encouraged to see so many of my colleagues in the republican conference express a real desire to be helpful both for the short term for the long term unfortunately nice words were enough to bring the lights back on months after the hurricane devastated the caribbean island an explosion took the grid down yet again now of course nobody blamed it on a plan by washington to sabotage puerto rico's electricity but when the same thing happened in venezuela guess who was to blame but was sure to juice and starvation are the result of the majeure regimes incompetence i do respond this is bring
8:12 pm
nothing but darkness. and when the u.s. government was called out for its poor handling of the puerto rican relief efforts well come on that was different it was a deepening humanitarian crisis where the feds were the good guys early response to point a rico hurricane wasn't good but not because federal government didn't care the u.s. government does seem to care a lot about venezuela check out those u.s. aid trucks as for washington's aid packages for puerto rico. a couple months ago donald trump tweeted he wants to end the little aid that is left for puerto rico it seems that crises abroad are much easier to solve than those at home either that or maybe despite all the appeal to emotions for some politicians it's just not really about solving the crisis in the first place. the new york times has posted
8:13 pm
a new os call again blaming my dear and his government for the recent blackouts they are calling deadline accusing sanctions by the trumpet ministration of being a major cause of all that blackouts by affecting venezuela's ability to import feel we also gregory will purchase co-founder of the web site venezuela analysis dot com for his thoughts. the sanctions are having a serious impact on venezuela's economy and life i think the very fact that for example sixteen members of the u.s. congress have complained to the trumpet ministers and sent a letter to the trumpet ministration about the sanctions saying that they should be stopped because they are costly irreparable damage to the economy and to the people of venezuela and that's of course very possible because then as we were depends on almost everything on it for imports and it's become extremely difficult to import anything this specially if it's coming from the united states and it needs replacement parts for its electrical equipment it needs for the backup generators
8:14 pm
and backup power plants and special fuel that comes from the united states so if if it hadn't been for the sanctions the power outage would almost definitely have not lost to those long or not been a serious but because they have the sanctions it ended up being much worse. donald trump is asking the u.s. congress for a record increase in military spending the details coming up after a short break. so you k. wanted sovereignty so with that sovereignty comes chlorinated chicken you know with the good comes the man you know you can get loaded bricks at night you're going to get the clonaid of shit. whether you're for or against the venezuelan government for or against socialism it is obvious the
8:15 pm
mainstream media are committing a lot of journalistic malpractise once again mainstream media echo the policy preferences of those in power to become says still another military intervention to the media because response. shows seem wrong. but all roles just don't call. me. yet to shape out these days to come out ahead and engage with because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back the white house has unveiled plans for a record high military budget next year just months old the president trump decried

8:24 pm
any of the five charges he's facing speaking off the harrowing he said he wasn't afraid of prison. through going to jail if i was afraid of going to joe why would have been a soldier the documents leaked to the media by david mcbride was the basis of a t.v. documentary series called the afghan files it claimed to expose misconduct including unlawful killings committed by australian special forces in afghanistan among the incidents reported is the killing of a civilian man and his son while they slept during a raid in twenty thirteen it's alleged that australian s.a.'s troopers shot the two by mistake they later apologized to the relatives but avoided prosecution in another case of afghan detainees who were shot dead after he was alone while while he was alone with an australian soldier david mcbride again insists that before leaking the information to the media he had tried to draw officials attention but
8:25 pm
to no avail. i think it was swept under the carpet you saw the police they didn't do anything about it formally i saw the press and it was published on a.b.c. . r.t. asked the australian defense forces for comment on david mcbride's allegations and why his request was not given the green light meanwhile we spoke to a former f.b.i. agent and whistleblower. who told us that even in time of war soldiers should uphold the rule of law. we have been at war since nine eleven for eighteen plus years i think when times of war that leaders lose sight of the law the rule of law is a victim there's an interesting thing because david mcbride you know when he was a soldier he swore an oath to to follow his duty as a soldier and of course he's fighting for the rule of law same thing in the united
