5:11 pm
a legal framework here the prime minister of new zealand has also confirmed the 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 done this attack was only live stream for a full fifteen minutes it was also assured multiple times a kind to a kind people were saying they had no problem finding about leads to a lot of questions as you were saying with the social media platforms how they responded to criticism the big three giants facebook twitter and you tube do face questions over whether they really did handle that sort of that situation with these pictures being channeled across the whole world in the first twenty four hour was that removed one point five million views of the attack globally of which over

5:14 pm
a long time so i took we took to some of the crimean ends and ask them how their life's changed in this half a decade yet that interested seeing as a resident of the city al say that it happened for the better. and over the past five years trusted changes have occurred in everything even in the general impression of the peninsula. problems have always existed so who owns it all depends on the people when we agreed 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 now patriotic songs on the stage behind me were briefly interrupted by the address of the russian president vladimir putin has visited the region and he spoke about the including so of the decision he had made five years ago effectively giving the
5:15 pm
peninsula a chance to become part of russia yet again i was really speaking of the problems faced by the region hopefully at least one of them has been fixed once and for all and that is elect electrical supply see crimea as being very dependent on ukraine very basic infrastructure very basic old infrastructure so it drew most of its electricity most of its electrical supply from ukraine and often here would be either. incapable of or simply not willing to provide enough energy so people's homes would go dark repeatedly the whole of the peninsula would go dark today vote . putin launched two power plants into full capacity in fact this is so powerful that not only crimea is self-sufficient now but also it could export some of that power to other regions and so really the celebrations our own going on so this is

this is a big day for crimea and for russia and for all the people who flocked to the streets to celebrate. the u.s. secretary of state has defended washington's backing of the saudi led coalition's bombing campaign in yemen follow a senate vote last week to withdraw support my compost says its continuation is the way to ensure just peace and to alleviate suffering in the water own country the senators who voted i say they want to end the bombing in yemen and support human rights. but we really think about rights. 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. deals with saudi arabia are
5:17 pm
expected to total around three hundred fifty billion dollars over a decade and apart from supplies and military equipment washington also provides riyadh with logistics and intelligence all senior correspondent what i guess the deeper into the u.s. secretary of state's comment. 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 is a 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 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
5:18 pm
a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran as opposed to becoming a puppet of the free and 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 was even in 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 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 work sowed to about two
5:19 pm
dollars per hungry civilian per month from washington but as 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 pompei o 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
5:20 pm
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 was. didn't was all too happy to support this explanation here we need that real relationship which brought trillions and trillions of dollars in profit the u.s. oil company the bank the military corporation the trump government and usually not the trump government but the administrations in washington democrat and republican serve the interests of those big banks and corporations and so many that
5:21 pm
relationship with all that it means for profit and how our empire the interest of empire that is the priority not the lives of the people of yemen are the people of saudi arabia or the people of venezuela or for that matter the people of the united states. united states has made its largest deployment of strategic bombers to the u.k. more than a decade the b. fifty two aircraft which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons to take nato drills in georgia close to russia so the border touched down just days after the pentagon mentioned the woods strike and russia has. no limits on american military power even when it comes to new 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
5:22 pm
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 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 nuke us first. you know 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 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
5:23 pm
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 u.s. military budget this. 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 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 really designed to allow us to project power when it were necessary to ensure interest in the context that emerging threats for china
5:24 pm
