his thoughts on the shooting and the authorities response. though the there's few details to go on you know it's starting to fit a similar kind of profile a similar kind of trend where we're seeing. men that have go to that of have a history of engaging in salafi jihadists who have carried out what is presumed to be sort of loon act. mass shootings shootings knifings vehicle borne assaults and so it certainly fits the modus operandi of what we've seen in europe over the last seven eight years so i think that the dutch are being cautious naturally so i suspect what we'll see is that he'll be cornered we may end up with a hostage situation or he may die. pretended. that moving on to another or top stories this french president among you almost called an

emergency meeting with a double agent flick did bybee it and latest weekend of yellow best protests the government rallies were once more marred by violence with fires being set to look sri shall polluted plush is with police between a culture of the reports from the charred ravaged shaun's elisei. one of the world's most glamorous avenues looks very different this monday a burnt out kiosks shattered windows and graffiti on luxury stores that's the face of the iconic sound selling say after the protest on saturday the french government has already admitted that not enough was done to prevent extreme rioting from taking place analysis of events shows that the measures taken proved to be insufficient in containing the violence and preventing the actions of the rioters protesters who are throwing rocks right into the windows of the shops they used molotov cocktails flares and pieces of pavement to damaged buildings police say ten

thousand people gathered here on saturday and among them the hundred three missed what i did. to fight two hundred and forty people were arrested and over eighty shops including some luxury boutiques were vandalize. i. was. the french president was forced to cut short his skiing trip for an emergency meeting he said that what happened was no longer a demonstration it has become a national security threats what happened today on the show mr lee's a can no longer be called a demonstration these are people who want to destroy the republic even at the risk of killing everyone who was there was complicit in this yellow vests protest for
12:06 pm
the eighteenth weekend so far it is unclear what may ease the tension and put an end to this violence by going to question r.t. reporting from paris. just expanding a little on what made you know the syrian ramped up measures against the yellow vests there are still to be a knowledge wherever it is thought the french government is considering at all new demonstrations all new elisei were for months that is where people have congregated political commentator usually pretty small told me earlier that particular thinking won't get to the crux of the problem. they are probably going to ban demonstrations . doesn't change anything to the depth of the problem the depth of the problem is that we have had faulty social. cutting social services deemed a sleazy. and so people are fed up with. mccoy's not responsible to. never mention anything about all the people who lost. the only concern of
12:07 pm
the. damage and people even more so it's easy. in those who are going to ski when he knows that his is going to be in trouble everybody has announced it is the question also why didn't the police prevent that because it was in the newspaper. the. new zealand's government is promising to make changes to the country's gun laws in the wake of friday's terrorists two mosques in christ church which left fifty people dead its prime minister just sent to our turn has also sharply criticized social media platforms saying may need to do far more to tackle extremist content the atrocity was live streamed on facebook and instagram and circulated widely online in the aftermath hawkins join me in the studio earlier with more on the government's response to the police investigation continues of course questions are
12:08 pm
being raised as to what exactly happened in the lead up on the aftermath of this terrible act of barbarity among some most question social media the role it played this act of terror the shooting of fifty people was actually live streamed of facebook for around fifty minutes before it was taken now specifically at the request of police in new zealand it was then a shared subsequently all other social media platforms as well so there's been criticism of inactivity over activity as well as the questions being raised of course over the legal standing. of such cases the police in new zealand have reminded their twitter followers certainly that distributing objects at all publications quoting here could mean a prison sentence if deemed injurious to public good which these sorts of terrible images of course would be deemed such so that's raises a whole host of questions with at least one arrest already confirmed in new zealand over the sharing of these images very much and president a legal framework here the prime minister of new zealand has also confirmed the
12:09 pm
sheer challenge they face dealing with this and how exactly they could stand this out in the future i would call on our social media platforms of all variety to demonstrate the kind of responsibility that both lead to these have been and that includes stars who perpetuate their messages in the aftermath there's a lot of work that needs to be down of course the shooter not only live streamed this attack in fact he actually posted a seventy four page manifesto a seventy four page document on twitter leading up to that attack he also e-mailed this so-called manifesto to a number of recipients the new zealand prime minister office was one of those he outlined his plans on this document he posted photos of his guns as well something very much a cause for concern that seventy four pages i assume just spewing out all kinds of here treatment of course he described himself as
12:10 pm
a fascist who was going to basically kill as many non whites as he could to protect what he described as western civilization as the european race and civilization from invaders he named norway's mass murderer and as breivik as an inspiration saying that new zealand wasn't actually his first choice to carry out this attack but he did actually not only mention the even the weapons he was you he was going to use but also the locations he was considering targeting done this attack was normally live stream for a full. fifteen minutes it was all show assured multiple times a kind to a kind people were saying they had no problem finding it that leads to a lot of questions as you were saying with the social media platforms how they responded to criticism while the document for example was removed from a twitter shortly after the attack took place many of the videos as well were removed of course the big three giants facebook twitter and you tube do face
12:11 pm
questions over whether they really did handle that sort of that situation with these pictures being channeled across the whole world how effectively they dealt with that and indeed how they plan to deal with this in the future now from their point of view they're certainly doing all they can to prevent this happening again and to remove the videos that are already out there in the first twenty four hour we removed one point five million views of the attack globally of which over one point two million were blocked at a plume would we continue to work around the clock to remove violating content using a combination of technology and people clues no we are working vigilantly to remove any violent footage of course i don't think anybody is under the illusion is here that simply removing these streams any quicker would have of course save the lives of these innocent people but there are questions raised as to for example in an age where clues about intentions and violent. threats for example on social media where some sort of nation can be gleaned from them to give the security services to
12:12 pm
perhaps act quicker issue some sort of warning in an age where these sorts of horrific videos can be streamed online is the threat being taken seriously enough or are these preventative methods work in the moderators the algorithms and. how exactly this can be stopped from happening again. battle lines are being drawn in washington as congress and the white house find themselves out all odds over america's role in yemen and we have that story and plenty more besides.
12:13 pm
but the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime helping the . eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be old rich with six percent world market thirty percent some with one hundred to five hundred per second per second and this one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers over. the only number you need to remember one one business showed ford to miss the one and only boom but .
12:14 pm
hello again the u.s. secretary of state has defended washington's blocking of the saudi led coalition's bombing campaign in yemen follows a senate folks last week to withdraw support micah pump ale saying its continuation is the way to quote ensure just pace and to alleviate suffering in the war torn country. the senators who voted say they want to end the bombing in yemen 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 we should point out donald trump's
12:15 pm
arms deals with saudi arabia are expected to total iran three hundred fifty billion dollars over a decade apart from arms supplies and military equipment washington provides riyadh with logistics and intelligence our senior correspondent the of has been delving 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 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 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
12:16 pm
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 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 i the on the brink 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
12:17 pm
hundred million dollars in two thousand and eighteen alone and as pledged an additional five hundred million dollars this year we work south to about two dollars per hungry civilian per month from washington but as for the cameras you know where the real money is guns oh yes guns very very you know five hundred thirty three million dollars five hundred twenty five million dollars the spinach for you. 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 zero 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
12:18 pm
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 fishelson 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 really. really really. the banks the military corporations the trump government and usually not just the
12:19 pm
trunk but the administrations 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 the part that's the priority not the lives of people the young men or the people of saudi arabia or people of venezuela or for that matter people states. ok switching gears now a fiery football darby in greece between the so-called the turtle rivals promise and i call us on the olympic costs was marred by clashes between funds on police on sunday both in the inside the stadium and off and. i. i. i. i.
12:20 pm
you know the game was interrupted just half a dozen minutes in when dozens of mosque publisher like us found attempts to invade the pitch attacked the visiting team substitute benj the referee eventually abandoned the fixture in the second as police used tear gas to disperse i agree supporters the match official said the stadium wasn't safe talks a gal's forced to move closer to the pitch no serious injuries or arrests have been reported thus. the united states has made its largest the poloi mintz all of attack to the u.k. in more than a decade the b. fifty two strategic bombers switches are capable of carrying nuclear weapons are to take part in a two drills in georgia close to russia's southern border they touched down just days after the pentagon mentioned the words nuclear strike russia together kill
12:21 pm
a puppet brings us more in the. 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 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 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
12:22 pm
that's a 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 if you 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 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
12:23 pm
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 be answer interest in the context that emerging threats for china and russia so at this point us military policy has two major promises number one first strikes with nuclear weapons are they 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 is not the only one talking tough so is u.s. senator and presidential hopeful amy slope which are. am i a tough boss sometimes yes i am tough i push people and that is true. i

12:26 pm
a resident of the city i'll say that it happened for the better. and over the past five years trust exchanges have occurred in everything even the general impression of the peninsula there were problems have always existed so who owns it all depends on the people when we agree to reunite with russia things went calmly people enjoyed life and then there's those against it i have friends here who are unhappy about it but very few over time they'll be satisfied because they saw the chaos before when you could do whatever you wanted now we have the rule of law. ok a little bit of a connection issue just with igor i see it going through really what people locals there have felt over the past five years since reunification with russia would
