and support human rights. but were really to 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's 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 just give you a sense of the relationship your donald trump's arms deals with saudi arabia are expected to total around three hundred fifty billion dollars over a decade now and apart from arms supplies and military equipment washington provides riyadh with majestic sound intelligence our senior correspondent has been looking deeper into the u.s. secretary of state's comments. the united states makes no secret of what it stands for freedom justice democracy and saudi arabia the

7:05 am
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 is the 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
7:06 am
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 pompei o is adamant if a little bit rabid in his support for saudi arabia and gun sales which really 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 a tease to one life that washington didn't seem so concerned about mr howe shoji was the victim of a brutal and premeditated killing planned and perpetrated by fishelson of the state
7:07 am
of saudi arabia riyadh has brushed off ickes ations that the rule family had anything to do with it saying it was ruled operation and that seems washington was all too happy to support this explanation. which. really really. profit us oil company. the banks the military and the trump government and usually notice the term administrations in washington democrat and republican serve the interests of those big banks and corporations and so many have no relationship at all that it means or how or why or the part that is the priority not the lives of people young and other peoples are the regular people of venezuela or for that many people.
7:08 am
this could be another eventful week for break sets with the u.k. parliament expected to vote for a third time on trees amazed for steele the british prime minister has been trying to rally support from her conservative party and key coalition partners warning that a rejection could stall bragg's it indefinitely if parliament can find a way to back to bragg's it deal before european council the u.k. will leave you this spring without having to take part in the european elections and we can get on with building our future relationship we if it cannot will not leave the e.u. for many months if ever. well british m.p.'s rejected treason made proposals in a series of votes last week they also voted against the new deal breaks it gnarly but they did however parliament back plans to extend the u.k.'s withdrawal period from the e.u. well the pushback on treason may know means that she's left with
7:09 am
a smaller pool really of options to see her through if m.p.'s reject it she's expected to ask brussels for a long date line extension potentially lasting years now depending on the reaction could trigger a general election or indeed a second referendum. if m.p.'s pass may still she'll ask brussels for a short extension until june the thirtieth if that is not granted or no deal agreed the u.k. could simply crush out of the bloc empty handed here's political commentator john white on how this week's public 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 it in the commons. last thing she tried the second time was one hundred forty nine so she has to convince one hundred forty nine. voted against it just just one little girl to change their
7:10 am
minds within a week to these families clearly determined to be the prime minister who caused their own delivering breck said but she's only delivering more to more chaos and division in the country and usually when a prime minister loses parliament a parliamentary issue because it means she's lost or he has lost the authority of the house of commons and the third kind of prime minister lead but she's managed to hang on because we are in an extraordinary times. parliament divided over the issue recent polls in the u.k. suggest forty six percent would vote remain in a second referendum and only thirty six percent would choose the current terms and while it's still unclear when exactly. the pinch.
7:11 am
ok to another story we're closely following states made its largest deployment of
7:12 am
strategic bombers to the u.k. in more than a decade the. bombers which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons. georgia close to russia's border they just days after the pentagon mention the words strike russia together as more. no limits on american military power even when it comes to news that seems to be the prevailing sentiment among certain forces earlier this year two u.s. senators put forward a new law to prohibit the first strike use of 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 of decision making calculations and also can envision several circumstances where we would not want to remove that option from the president
7:13 am
there are some circumstances apparently where nuking somebody who hasn't already knew you first it 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 a nuke just first. you know that's it like. 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 like with syria what was going on hopefully lives 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 your competitors have not been complacent china's defense spending china's organized approach to steal foreign technology russia for its part continues to compete symmetrically with the united states now you made that statement while explaining why the u.s. military budget despite being higher than every other country in the world by
7:14 am
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 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 cyberspace land sea and air in the capabilities that we have identified in this year's budget or really designed to allow us to project power when it were necessary to ensure interest in the context that emerging 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.
7:15 am
new york the pentagon is not the only one talking tough so is u.s. senator and presidential hopeful amy club of char. sometimes yes. i push people that is true. i would trade you for bottled water. she was known to throw off the street greeting by your. buddies were asking for you to be described as washing dishes for. negative for. me to come up here. but. when you're out there on the world stage and dealing with people like that i mean if you want someone who is.

cities fully connected homes and. this is the future in a lean howard. 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. network could drown out that information and this is
