truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran is the stories in the headlines today the u.s. secular state stands firm on support for the saudi led coalition bombing campaign despite a us senate vote to end it move the donald trump has threatened to veto. this coming up with the third time lucky for two reasons the british promise is expected to put a plan to vote once again as she pleads for support for a much maligned deal. and the united states deploys nuclear capable strategic bombers for war games why don't the russia's border as the pentagon

sounds off about first strike deeply on. their good morning i just turned eleven this monday morning in moscow this march the eighteenth international live for me kevin now in thirty minutes and who's coming up and starting with this the u.s. secretary of state has defended washington's backing of the saudi led coalition's bombing campaign in yemen it comes out for a senate vote last week to withdraw support says its continuation though is a way to ensure just peace and to alleviate suffering from that war torn country the senators who voted aye say they want to end the bombing in yemen and support human rights. but we really do think about who schumann writes. if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from

turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran the way to alleviate the many people suffering isn't to prolong the conflict by handicapping our partners in the fight but by giving the saudi led coalition the support needed to defeat arabian back rebels and ensure just peace donald trump's arms deals with saudi arabia are expected to total around three hundred fifty billion dollars over a decade and apart from supplies and monitoring equipment washington also provides red with logistics and intelligence nexus one a senior correspondent looks deeper into the u.s. secretary of state's recent comments. the united states makes no secret of what it stands for freedom justice democracy and saudi arabia the white house stands firm on that even if the senate is having second thoughts voting to end u.s. support for riyadh's endless war in yemen saudi arabia's bloody war in yemen
4:03 am
world's worst humanitarian disaster the horrific wall in yemen saudi led quagmire we are helping saudi arabia drop bombs on churches and weddings we all want this conflict to end if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran as opposed to becoming a puppet of the free and fair saudi arabia but what do we know the saudis have waged a four year war against who with the rebels who they call terrorists that has turned yemen into a humanitarian catastrophe worse even than syria four and five yemeni civilians twenty four out of twenty eight million need aid to survive three in five or twenty million either on the brink or already starving that
4:04 am
is to pump a zero has a solution the united states has given more than two billion dollars to help the many people since the start of the conflict. and saudi arabia has given over five hundred million dollars in two thousand and eighteen alone and as pledged an additional five hundred million dollars this year we sowed to about two dollars per hungry civilian per month from washington but adds for the cameras you know where the real money is guns oh yes guns are very very you know five hundred thirty three million dollars five hundred twenty five million dollars the screeners view. peanuts he says twelve point five billion dollars in that the u.s. is selling saudi arabia is peanuts what does that make the aid then but mr
4:05 am
pompei zero is adamant if a little bit rabid in his support for saudi arabia and gun sales if we truly care about saudi lives you'd want to stop or run back to these from launching missiles into riyadh amazing how you can twist and turn reality on its head rather than protecting you many civilians from saudi arabia he's protecting saudi arabia from starving many civilians brilliant speaking of protecting saudi lives there is at least one life that washington didn't seem so concerned about mr hersh shoji was the victim of a brutal and premeditated killing planned and perpetrated by officials of the state of saudi arabia riyadh has brushed off ickes ations that the rule family had anything to do with it saying it was rude to operation and that seems washington was all too happy to support this explanation. here we see that

relationship which. really did trillions of dollars in profit us oil companies the banks the military corporations the trump government and usually notice the chunk of the administrative ins in washington democrat and republican serve the interests of those big banks and corporations and so many net relationship and all that it means for profit power empire the interest of empire now is the priority not the lives of people young men or the people of saudi arabia or people of venezuela or for that matter people states next to being told not to be brits it rumbles on it could be another really eventful week full brakes it with the u.k. parliament expected to vote for a third time on trees amazed of all steel the british premise is been trying as a shield to rally support from a conservative party and key coalition partners warning that any rejection could
4:07 am
stall breaks it indefinitely. if parliament can find a way to back to brag city hall before a european council the u.k. will edu this spring without having to take part in the european elections and we can get on with building our future relationship we deal if it cannot will not leave the e.u. for many months if ever let's remind ourselves where we are british m.p.'s rejected to resume proposals in a series of votes last week where they also voted against the no deal breaks it out to crucially however parliament plans to extend the u.k.'s withdrawal period from the year that pushed all these votes of. those left increasingly with less and less of a pool of options that she can go to to see a plan through sure no she's tried to hear a voice last week with m.p.'s rejected she's been asked brussels for a long deadline extension may be potentially lasting years depending on reaction back home that could trigger a general election or
4:08 am
a second referendum on leaving the but if peace pass mase deal she'll then ours brussels for a short extension maybe to june the thirtieth if that's not granted or no deal agreed with me here the u.k. could simply crush out of the bloc empty handed after all this rowing link political commentator john white has this prediction of how this week's ballot could go down. very unlikely that she will manage to get her was droll deal passed in parliament a time of asking because the majority that voted against this in the commons. last thing she tried the second time was one hundred forty nine so she has to convince one hundred fourteen eighteen m.p.'s who voted against it just just one week ago to change their minds within a week recently is clearly determined to be the prime minister who goes down as delivering the exit but she's only delivering more and more chaos and division in the country usually when a prime minister loses parliament
4:09 am
a parliamentary vote resigning issue because it means she's lost or he has lost the authority of the house of commons and the third i thought the whole kind of prime minister late but she's managed to hang on because we had any and we had extraordinary times. it is not the parliament is divided on the issue polls in the case just forty six percent would vote remain in a second referendum and only thirty six percent would leave the current but while it's still unclear when exactly will happen or if it will happen at all it's already. feeling the pinch of.
4:10 am
states has made its largest deployment of strategic bombers to the u.k. in more than a decade the b. fifty two bombers which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons. drills in ga ga of course very close to russia's southern border just days after the pentagon spoke on the possibility of a nuclear strike against russia. no limits on american military
4:11 am
power even when it comes to new that seems to be the prevailing sentiment among certain forces earlier this year senators put forward a new law to prohibit the first strike. nuclear weapons by the united states they made it pretty simple the entire text of the law was one sentence it is the policy of the united states not to use nuclear weapons first now that's also the policy of the russian president but top u.s. military brass say that it's unacceptable and i wouldn't recommend any change to simplify and. decision making calculus but also can envision several circumstances where we would not want to remove that option from the president there are some circumstances apparently where nuking somebody who hasn't already knew you first might be a good idea we decided to talk to new yorkers and see what circumstances they think it might be can you think of any situation where we would nuke somebody who had nuke us first.
4:12 am
that's a look. i don't think that's right i don't know what the circumstances would be i mean like syria i mean that makes sense to me spotlight with syria what was going on hopefully wins over there not here so in some circumstances nuking somebody first might be a valid decision but what exactly constitutes aggression take it from the acting secretary of defense or competitors of not being complacent china's defense spending china's organized approach to steal foreign technology russia for its part continues to compete asymmetrically with the united states now he made that statement while explaining why the us military budget despite being higher than every other country in the world by billions of dollars was actually going up so russia is doing it and we have to keep up but let's look at what russia is actually doing total combined military budget for nato countries in the year of twenty nineteen is roughly one thousand three hundred ninety five billion euros meanwhile
4:13 am
russia is spending thirty nine billion euros so how exactly is the usa catching up china and russia in particular the capabilities developed over the last few years to limit our ability to operate freely in space cyber space land sea and air in the capabilities that we have identified in this year's budget. really designed to allow us to project power when it were necessary to reassure interest in the context that merging threat for china and russia so at this point us military policy has two major promises number one first strikes with nuclear weapons are a ok and number two russia and china two major nuclear powers are bad and must be opposed can anyone think of a greater recipe for disaster. r.t. new york. the pentagon not the only one talking tough so is the u.s. senator and presidential hopeful amy clue but. sometimes. i push people that is true.

i would treat you for a bottle of water. she was known to. reach. these were. described as the. issues for. negative reports of how you treated some of your staff in the past like. when you're out there on the world stage and dealing with people like. that you want someone that's. thousands of anti-government demonstrators most outside police station headquarters

hello get us out international good morning well so the next mass and expressing concerns over advancing five g. wireless technology they say could potentially interfere with vital weather data sets in forecasting accuracy they worry that fifty years down the court has got more on the story. remember the devastation left in the wake of america's worst hurricanes. now think what if those affected had one less day to brace for disaster it might seem hard to imagine but nasa warns that this could be the future of weather forecasts and it's all because of. the new five g. network everyone's ranting and raving about. a new boston that way has the potential to transform the internet the promise is to connect nearly every aspect of our lives over an incredibly fast reliable wireless network driving cars smart
4:19 am
cities fully connected homes and robots this is the future in a lean howard by five she. sure five g. might provide better cell phone coverage but to set it up the federal communications commission wants to auction off the bandwidth used by meteorologists to predict the weather and that nasa warns could knock forecasting accuracy all the way back to nine hundred seventy the current federal communications commission proposal would have a significant negative impact on the transmission of critical science data the problem has to do with a special radio frequency sensors that detect weather patterns operate on the same wavelength that five g. is set to use now these sensors are vital for quickly informing the public of natural disasters without them it would have been impossible to predict hurricane sandy's trajectory in two thousand and twelve and meteorologists are worried because a new five g.
4:20 am
network could drown out that information this is a very difficult thing because a lot of the radio frequencies that are used to sense the atmosphere do get of servatius about the weather are very close to areas where five g. rollout will occur and in fact we do know that many of the weather sure asians that we collect from space. do meaningfully impact estimates of the trend in intensity of developing storms over the ocean this is not only in issue or the united states it is an issue for the entire world the f.c.c. wipe their hands clean of scientists concerns they said a quick rubber stamp from the state department was good enough for them it's no wonder though the federal communications commission will move forward as planned. in the race to five g. and the american people can quickly enjoy the benefits of the next generation of
4:21 am
ones connectivity donald trump already said american companies need to compete or get left in the dust and a full speed ahead charge into a five g. world is. only the only way to do it as for the everyday american well they'll have to bear the consequences i'm definitely five g. because we've been through hurricanes here you're not going to slow down technology and the applications that we can use five g. four are very exciting i'm not sure the risks have been divinely i'm not sure that we know what the risks are i do not believe a faster internet connection is. worth the risk over three thousand puerto ricans died as a result of hurricane maria and twenty seventeen without the warnings twenty first century technology brings there is no telling how much devastation the next disaster may bring donald quarter r.t. . in germany police in munich have suspended five officers for sharing neo nazi
