a very very. old moderating in real time these videos. are broadcasting studios in moscow recapping the week's top stories with our weekly program this is international. right now the u.s. president has issued yet another warning to iran tweeting that if you ron wants to fight that will be the official end of iran and that is despite an offer from president hassan rouhani to hold crisis talks to resolve the ongoing standoff in the persian gulf. mind we welcome to go we do not negotiate with a party that behaves like a bully and takes a knife out of his pocket and forces and. we do not hold such negotiations with anybody in their neighbors or spread instability everywhere we go in the middle east. and major the. stabilizing the influence in the middle east spread death

destruction and chaos the leaders of iran are rocketeers the world's largest financier of international terrorism behind every problem is already. been trying to do is get the wrong to the table like the old u.s. has been waging what it calls a maximum pressure campaign against iran since withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal last year washington has imposed several rounds of sanctions and earlier this month tehran responded by saying it could scale up its uranium enrichment with more now on the dispute is our chief daniel hawkins. it seems now although hostilities have reached new heights the u.s. has issued a security alert all its non-emergency personnel in iraq asking them to immediately depart from the u.s. embassy in baghdad and from the consulate bill that's an order that relates to all non-emergency personnel why the sudden panic well this security alert mentions no
7:03 pm
specific threats or reasons nevertheless though officials haven't explained these recent developments and how any sort of iranian threat would actually manifest itself to harm u.s. personnel tensions were wrapped up last week when the u.s. deployed an aircraft carrier group complete with bombers to the region iran as the squad all such moves are psychological warfare. stating that they're not looking for confrontation or war but they would respond to anything made viewed as u.s. aggression that some. view of that echoed by washington as well now the root of all of these recent troubles this reason this glacial was of course trumps withdrawal from iran nuclear treaty that was criticized roundly by the other signatories party to that agreement it was followed by threats of sanctions saber rattling and rhetoric on all sides certainly things are not slowing down and concerns globally are growing of just how far things can be pushed to the brink and you see this type of high you can't help it but you remember what the united states did men they
7:04 pm
wanted to attack iraq in 2003 come and go that bogus intelligence. issues that that's really. something that should be taken seriously the same people john bolton used to be working with work for the u.s. government that he is the u.s. national security adviser. and he wrote an article in the march of 2015 calling for a military strike on iran iran is not interested in a mirror to confrontation with the united states so when you look at the u.s. history you see false flag operations you see different types of initiatives when the u.s. wants to attack a country they come up with excuses so i hope we are not seeing a repeat of this. iran was a key focus of the discussions between the top diplomats of russia and the u.s. this week in the black sea resort of sochi the russian president was there and
7:05 pm
urged tehran to stick to the 2015 nuclear deal despite the u.s. pulling out. american solution to go a little americans have withdrawn from the iran nuclear deal so the deal is coming apart european countries can't do anything to save it and can't really cooperate with iran to compensate their economic losses but as soon as iran makes its 1st steps in responding and announces its withdrawal everyone will immediately forget that it was the us who initiated the collapse and everyone will end up blaming it all on iran russia saying that it believes the iranian nuclear deal of 2015 is the best option going forward it's a system a platform a framework that's already established that will guarantee to the international community that iran is in pursuing nuclear weapons the united states agreeing to disagree the united states will continue to apply pressure to the regime in tehran
7:06 pm
until its leadership is prepared to return to the ranks of responsible nations that do not threaten their neighbors or spread instability or terror or mouse and we have many disagreements on iran now but the fact that we've started talking on this issue gives us hope that we will be able to achieve agreements if both sides show willingness to do that nevertheless both sides have said that you know they will continue to work together on coming up with some sort of solution along with the other signatories of the iran iranian nuclear deal. and venezuela we have disagreement i urge my russian colleagues to support the venezuelan people as they return democracy to their country. the united states and more than 50 other nations agree that the time has come for nicolas maduro to go he's brought nothing but misery to the venezuelan people. and we hope that the russians support form a durable will and the markets are still in use them a democracy can be imposed by force the threats coming both from u.s.
7:07 pm
officials and the opposition leader one quite. who is always reminding us of the possibility of military intervention have nothing to do with democracy. what's booth's countries seem to agree on is that it's very well and that should decide what happens to their country they've managed to talk about all their differences and they've managed to say to each other we disagree on this this is how we see it . 5 internet giants have committed to combating violent content online after world leaders urged them to do so at a summit in paris on wednesday this follows the recent terrorist attack in christchurch new zealand which was live streamed on facebook and widely shared on other platforms. terrorism and violent extremism a complex societal problems that required all of society response for the commitments we are making today will further strengthen the partnership the government society on the technology industry must have to address these threats.
7:08 pm
the tech firms including google and microsoft have agreed to ban anyone who shares violent or extremist content they have also pledged to follow up on material flying to as terrorist propaganda more probably all new rules for live streams will be implemented in new zealand 10 people have been charged for sharing the video of the christ church massacre reminder in march this year a gunman killed $51.00 people in 2 mosques the video was uploaded more than a 1000000 times on facebook after the live stream. we discussed the latest efforts to stamp out extremist content with privacy activist bill new media and media analyst lionel and rights attorney jennifer britain. you have an army not just with facebook but with twitter there's an army of contractors employees and other people who are there to immediately get it off right away as has been stated this happens with people that espouse certain political opinions and other ideologies and so now
7:09 pm
we're talking about you know we're talking about getting off far more egregious things monitoring or moderating in real time what these videos are and what becomes and is funding some research to try and improve their ability to detect this in real time with sort of automated means which is absolutely necessary given the volume of content but the technology simply isn't up to it yet the idea of somebody actually showing in broadcasting real time the slaughter of human beings i make it even simpler what if this was an actual real time live stream of child pornography nobody would be even debating this i would say you've got to fix this technology and now this is nothing to do with freedom of expression nothing to do with the dissemination of ideas in no way does it violate and by the way very quickly safe book has the most incredible celerity what it comes to shutting down and immediately knocking somebody off who are spouses a poll
7:10 pm
a little opinion just by merely supporting somebody you need to recognize the fact that a 1000000 copies were taken down effectively and we need to actually take us off to facebook the fact that it did take down so many different copy there would have been any number of different videos being all being shot simpleton you slowly and i see dealing with all those in real time would be almost impossible but those were the perpetrators do you publish them is that report told do you allow that what about people who are filming atrocities in miami more they're doing genuine reports do you allow that if it appears to be atrocious attacks and therefore we actually have to be slightly more realistic than saying the technology could do it come on get you move get. move over there is a formal complicated challenges they have i do believe and i know that they have this technology not only do they have that they have hundreds upon thousands of employees of contractors of people whose jobs it is to sit there and to see what's
7:11 pm
coming up and the moment something that is violent that is agree just that is horrific the horrific thing about this is that we are now given social media giants like facebook and twitter a very very severe amount of power that was supposed to only be a spouse of the us government federal government and state governments under the 1st amendment and now it's as if social media giants of platforms like facebook or twitter have taken over the you know what you guys have your 1st amendment governments you can't do anything we're the ones who dictate your speech now that's dangerous and that's something that needs to be consistently watched i don't want to hear anybody tell me that the technology is not there or there's no way to monitor this because let me tell you something if this war is something that was contrary to the zuckerberg world view it would be awful for anybody even thought it so they're dragging their feet it's nonsense and they know exactly what has to be done and they're simply not doing it. the pentagon has reportedly developed
7:12 pm
a secret weapon a ninja bomb it is a missile with blades designed to improve the accuracy of drone strikes or to skim up and. drone warfare has long been part of the u.s. government's war on terror and it's gotten ugly on more than one occasion. people by. drones basically sitting on a screen and eliminating people. dehumanizing them treating them. as if you know from some other planet not giving them a basic right of proving their innocence i mean it but. norms of justice
7:13 pm
on top of that it's all classified so leaking the methodology behind what human rights groups have called a method for extrajudicial executions can get you in a lot of trouble for daniel hale an n.s.a. officer and now suspected whistleblower that could mean up to 15 years in jail now to be fair u.s. leaders have long talked about their deep conviction over civilian deaths the architecture of the legal texture around the use of drone strikes or other committed strikes wasn't as precise as it should have been and there's no doubt that civilians were killed but shouldn't have but apparently it was u.s. president barack obama who ordered the creation of a new missile device that would increase the percentage and accuracy of these predator drone strikes and minimize civilian casualties it's apparently called the ninja bomb now it may be the pentagon's worst kept secret they have not officially confirmed it but so far several military officials have said that it's being used it's argued that the new missile might enhance the image of the united states in
7:14 pm
the countries that are already subject to u.s. military drone strike operations unlike a regular missile it doesn't explode instead it deploys 6 blades that fan out of its casing moments before impact blades are so sharp they can cut through vehicles and slice their target into pieces so we've got blades flinging through the air in order to reduce civilian casualties sounds plausible enough apparently the new ninja bomb has already been used in iraq libya syria somalia and yemen so is this new missile the answer will it improve the. image of the drone strike program in the eyes of the american public what do you think of the drone strike program. ok with it i know nothing about it it's pretty awful actually we have this thing now called a bomb right and what it is is it and when it detonates it sends blades through the air and the idea is this will minimize civilian casualties we can pick the terrorist we want to kill send the ninja bomb and fewer civilians will be killed
7:15 pm
you know that the blades kill the. terrorists and not the civilians it doesn't seem like that you can target maybe specific people with that seems like you'll just. spread out a lot of. a lot of damage i think that's also did a pretty good program them limit civilian casualties are going to do not that's not happening i think if somebody suggested that that. i don't think that is even real i don't think it really busy. will reduce actually so i think this is a. pretty sick propaganda whatever you want to put it that way to make people feel that there is a kinder gentler way of killing people. through no sas a nation where. you my declaration of human rights kind of person that they're talking about. this essentially you know possible and the notion of no assassination whether precise or generalized is so totally unacceptable we asked
7:16 pm
the pentagon to comment on the reports and we will let you know if they get back to us. the philippines and canada are locked in a dispute over garbage disposal that story and much more when we come back to washington. all of the years i've talked to you about the insects. of the economy where only humans are becoming like the colony of insects bees are. and that's all enabled by this 5 be enabled surveillance that pretty cool right. you know world of big partisan. and conspiracy it's time to wake up
7:17 pm
to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back this is our to international and the weekly now the united nations is urging the u.k. not to grant amnesty to soldiers accused of war crimes of this follows a proposal from the defense secretary to shield personnel from investigations into
7:18 pm
offenses dating back more than 10 years penny mordaunt's plans have also been condemned by rights groups. it would be utterly disingenuous to have a presumption of non-prosecution for abuse yet at the same time claim justice is being served british soldiers who break the law must face just like everyone else these proposals potentially set a dangerous precedent. plenty more data added to the controversy by saying that she would like to extend of the protections to troops who served in northern ireland with more on that here is our it is probably pork. the new boss in here has proposed a new law one that would presume soldiers innocent of any offenses committed throughout the course of june abroad more than 10 years ago although that rule could have exceptions for example if new evidence of alleged crimes were to come to light it is high time that we change the system and provide devide legal
7:19 pm
protections to make sure the decisions how service personnel take in the battlefield will not lead to repeated or unfair investigations down the line for the new defense secretary the new legislation is about making the system fairer and preventing what she called law fare repeated and unfair investigations against former soldiers this is no surprise at preventing someone who's committed a crime from facing justice this is about stopping an industry that surrounds these processes which is not about the pursuit of justice i had at the iraq historic allegations team spent 7 years trolling through allegations of torture wrongdoing at a cost of 60000000 pounds to the taxpayer none of the claims resulted in a prosecution and in 2016 the unit was shot down just because i completed 7 tours nor all with the infantry or associated units i lost
7:20 pm
many men. and i was involved in fatality shootings i was investigated along with others. the investigations were. aggressive and bloody awful to go through so while former soldiers and members of the military say that the amnesty doesn't go far enough. that it needs to include northern ireland to human rights groups are concerned that the government's desire to better protect its former and current servicemen and women will effectively place them above the law it's reported that there are around 150 investigations looking into alleged abuses by british soldiers in iraq and afghanistan the question is how the victims of those alleged abuses will ever get justice if these new proposals become law because so many detained
7:21 pm
so many killed the troops are the reason for the total destruction that the fate of those detained by them remains unknown. and of course some against an amnesty because of the systematic killing some of the blood they say since no one cares and we have to demand our rides through international courts because we're just simple people who just can't go by as soft to get our voices heard. there is great concern here that the crimes will be forgotten many people haven't received any compensation for the damage those who lost their homes or became disabled what they're trying to do is create an exemption from europe year human rights for soldiers on the battlefield that's obviously really dangerous because obviously the back of the is one place where there's lots of very wonderful people civilians and armed and others who might not be arguing about who's human rights need to get those soldiers should have understood what they need to say just sr if you committed you or if we should you get punished if you haven't you don't so there
7:22 pm
shouldn't be a blanket amnesty or exemption for anyone anywhere couldn't find an easy way to say that we will now bring all of these veterans back into the court and this will be our intention from this. if you would between the philippines in canada over ways to disposal has escalated with manila recalling its ambassador and staff on wednesday that is after. canada refused to take back 100 shipping containers of household waste it sent to the philippines back in 2013. that he. shows that we are. very serious and asking them to get back their garbage otherwise we're going to see very relationships with them . it was a later discovered the waste had been mislabeled as containing a recycling plastic in 2016 according the philippines ordered the canadian company to take the waste back but it continues to languish out
7:23 pm
a landfill site last month the outspoken filipino president gave a stark warning after more than a year of waiting for the canadian prime minister to get things moving. will declare war against canada we can take them down i'll return the trash just wait and see i will advice canada is on the way prepare a grand reception eat it if you want to it is now theoretically possible to get it back but there's still a number of questions around who will pay for it where the financial responsibility is where the consequences are. however a foreign affairs analyst we spoke to in manila says justin trudeau has failed to make good on earlier promises. for a very long time to fill in size being unfortunately the recipient of top seek ways including nuclear waste all from the united states in software western allies so this case has been lingering for quite long time it canadian one of those however i
7:24 pm
was a summer of 0.4 for the philippines for if you're president you going to target guess with no plans or just introduce us here in the last 2 years ago for the audience saw me he promised that they were going to take back the trust of the garbage top see the carbs that was left here lingered it's 2030 and it to your scheme does not happen i mean you can even go over to say that this was a private deal between a canadian company and it filippi that on their part in the 1st get it is also good say that you know it's not only can they get spoiled is also whoever was able to accept these back in 2013 in the philippines this is the greatest diplomatic crisis could get the president to long term holidays philippines and canada. the gas pipeline being built from russia to germany has passed a key milestone 50 percent of nord stream to has now been completed artie's only by trying to gain exclusive access to one of the vessels laying in the pipeline along the baltic sea.
7:25 pm
there you have it what's probably going to be the longest spaghetti strength in the world is making its way through the seawater and the cake is white say. a lot. so we're projecting in germany we're projecting the french were perfect for both of these french and the worst of the countries go out and make a pipeline here we're going. to be honest up front of the finger go to i mean we have probably all over the world political groups shouldn't really remember at the end of the day if you want your someone else we'll still work to get you.
7:26 pm
either does it for me i will be back with more of the weekly and let's say 34 minutes he wins. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the different clubs in one hand it is logical to sort of go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i want to the new challenge and the fresh perspective i'm used to surprising. or not if you think. i'm going to talk about football not for you or else you can think i was going to
7:27 pm
go. by the way ways of. you will not obey the voice of the lord your god will be careful to do all these commandments and the statutes which i command you this day in all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you on legs and then the white people the stolen property and therefore it must be returned to black people if they get rid of whites only problems will go away. the final folks need to think. as president of the fickle little. white farmers and so the 3 go be a day every single day. people being tortured to death expression the elderly people in the windows. mania somebody be anough company. and these white horse will find themselves affected by a crash and we are fortunate for the point of one of my teens and pre-teens oh it's
7:28 pm
all sweats and a lot of. what are you going to have for dinner today we don't have anything i'm asking for a nice meat bad cold fusion or civil war in south africa easy never to. profit from war for any chong not be in the tone of your hand to get. teach me. when lawmakers manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. when the financial merry go round lifts only the one percent. of the time
7:29 pm
to ignore middle of the room signals. the real news is really. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. what is described in the west as a russian invasion of crimea is a fact the presence of russian soldiers in crimean can you clarify that. they would could have to go to. but the most of the most go full of the could and. as long ago as 1804 sevastopol is a naval base became the main military port of the russian empire on the black sea.
7:30 pm
during the 2nd world war the heroic defense of sevastopol lasted almost a year and took hundreds of thousands of lives. therefore the naval base in crimea has a legacy of historical pride for the russian black sea fleet as well as being of huge strategic importance. those of us alive back then remember when there were soviet missiles put into cuba how frightened americans were and how angry and how we almost went to a nuclear confrontation over having weapons of that kind of destruction placed that close to the united states. just so if the united states considers cuba to be in its backyard. then crimea plays at russia's doorstep.
