right broadcasting live direct from our studio recapping week's top stories with our weekly program. and trash. at the u.s. president donald trump has issued yet another warning to iran tweeting that if you ron wants to fight that will be the official end of iran that is despite an offer from president hassan rouhani to hold crisis talks to resolve the ongoing standoff in the persian gulf. we welcome the 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 their neighbors are spreading stability everywhere we go in the middle east . and major destabilizing influence in the middle east spread death destruction and the leaders of our rocketeers. the world's largest financier of international

terrorism behind every problem is already. trying to do is get the wrong to be employed old patient 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 here is daniel hopkins. 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 specific threats or reasons nevertheless though officials haven't explained these recent developments and how any sort of iranian threat would actually manifest
8:03 pm
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 has described 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 rather echoed by washington as well now the root of all of these recent troubles this reason this glacial was of course trumps withdraw 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 wanted to attack iraq in 2003 come and go the. bogus intelligence.
8:04 pm
issues that really. something that should be taken seriously at the same people john bolton. working work for the u.s. government that gives us national security. and he wrote an article in 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 fast 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 discussions between the top diplomats of russia and of the u.s. this week in the black sea resort of sochi the russian president was there and urged tehran to stick to the 2015 nuclear deal despite u.s. polling out. american solution to go
8:05 pm
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 u.s. who initiated the collapse and everyone will end up blaming it all on iran and 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 until its leadership is prepared to return to the ranks of responsible nations that do not threaten their neighbors or spread instability or terror. and we have many
8:06 pm
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 to support. former doro will and. use them democracy can be imposed by force the threats coming both from u.s. officials and the opposition leader. who is always reminding us of the possibility
8:07 pm
of military intervention have nothing to do with democracy. what both countries seem to agree on is that it's. the to decide what happens to their country they've managed to talk about all their differences and they've managed to see 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 violence 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 the tech firms including google and microsoft have agreed to ban anyone who shares a violent or extremist content they have also pledged to follow up on material
8:08 pm
flagged as terrorist propaganda more promptly while new rules for live streams will be implemented as well in new zealand 10 people have been charged for sharing the video of the christ church massacre a 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 analyst lionel and rights attorney jennifer britain. you have an army not just with facebook but with twitter there's an army of contractors in. always 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 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 of what becomes
8:09 pm
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 all 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 a little opinion just by merely supporting somebody you need to recognize the fact
8:10 pm
that a 1000000 copies were taken down effectively and we need to actually take a hat 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 17 you slowly and i say dealing with all those in real time would be almost impossible but those were the perpetrators do you punish them is that report do you allow that what about people who are filming atrocities in my am 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 a move on their answer for more 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 coming up in 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
8:11 pm
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 and 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 a secret weapon nicknamed a ninja by it is a missile with blades designed to improve the accuracy of drone strikes or to secure a mop and has. drone warfare has long been part of the u.s.
8:12 pm
government's war on terror and it's gotten ugly on more than one occasion. killing people by these drones basically sitting on a screen and eliminating people. dehumanizing them treating them. as if you know the from some other planet not giving them a basic right of proving their innocence i mean it it violates all norms of justice 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
8:13 pm
a lot of trouble for daniel hale and 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 to the use of drone strikes or other commercial 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 the countries that are already subject to u.s. military drone strike operations unlike a regular missile it doesn't. splode instead it deploys 6 blades that fan out of
8:14 pm
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 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 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
8:15 pm
a lot of. a lot of damage i think that's also did a pretty good program number limit civilian casualties are going to do not that's not happening i think if somebody suggested that that. i had i don't think that is even real i don't think it really. room reduces actually so i think this is the. greatest propaganda whatever you want to put it that way to make people look there's a kinder gentler way of killing people want to. throw sas a nation which. you want to do you worship you're right kind of person you're talking about. actually you know also paul and the notion of no assassination whether precise or generalized is so totally unacceptable. we asked of the pentagon to comment on the reports and we'll let you know if we get
8:16 pm
a reply. now the philippines and canada are locked in a dispute over garbage disposal that story and much more when we come back you are watching our team international. i am reluctant to give credit to the president trying for just about anything but by action in a way when he said at the beginning of his presidency that he'd be open to it to one state or a 2 state solution whatever these rising balloting is going to agree on i think that was actually a smart thing to say given the legacy of american fulsome support for israel the expansion essentially over the decades given the kind of political culture and political system that israel has developed there really isn't a way to negotiate something between palestinians and israelis.
8:17 pm
join me every week on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to a guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. at the united nations is urging the u.k. to grant amnesty to soldiers accused of war crimes this follows a proposal from the defense secretary to shield personnel from investigations into offenses dating back more than 10 years. any war dance plans have also been condemned by rights groups. it would be utterly disingenuous to have
8:18 pm
a presumption of non-prosecution for abuse yet at the same time claim justice is being solved british soldiers who break the law must face just like everyone else these proposals potentially set a dangerous precedent a penny more than to added it to the controversy by saying that she would like to extend the protections to troops who served in northern ireland with one story here is hard he's probably can. the new boss in here has proposed a new law one that would presume soldiers innocent of any offenses committed throughout the course of a broad 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 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
8:19 pm
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 in industries that surrounds these processes which is not about the pursuit of justice i have the iraq historic allegations team spent 7 years trawling through allegations of murder 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 you know or with the infantry or associated units i lost many men. and i was involved in fatality shootings i was investigated along with
8:20 pm
others. the investigations were. aggressive and bloody awful to go through so well former soldiers and members of the military say that the amnesty doesn't go far enough that it needs to include northern ireland 2 human rights groups are concerned that the government's desire to better protect its former and current servicemen and women will is. back to every place them above the law it's reported that there are around $150.00 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 so many killed the troops are the reason for the total destruction the fate of those detained by them remains unknown. and of course i'm against an
8:21 pm
amnesty because of the systematic killing some of the blood they said since no one cares we have to demand our rides through international courts because we're just simple people who just can't go by as selves to get our voices heard not because there is grave 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 of fighters on the battlefield that's obviously really dangerous because obviously the back of the is one place that is not so very wonderful people civilians are and others who might not be argue about whose human rights need to get those who should have understood what they need to say just sr if you've committed you or if we should you get punished if you haven't you don't so there shouldn't be any market honesty or exemption for anyone anywhere the government couldn't find an easy way to say that we will now bring all of these veterans back into the court and it will be our intention from this. if
8:22 pm
you had between of the philippines and 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 the recall shows that we are. very serious and asking them to get back their garbage otherwise they are in a severe relationships with them. it was later discovered the waste had been mislabeled as containing recyclable plastic in 2016 a court in the philippines ordered the canadian company to take the waste back but it continues to languish a landfill site last month the outspoken filipino president gave canada a stark warning after more than a year of waiting for the canadian prime minister to get things moving will declare
8:23 pm
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 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. the foreign affairs analyst we spoke to in manila says justin trudeau has failed to make good on those promises for a very long time to the insides being unfortunately the recipient of tall seek ways including nuclear waste all from the united states and software western allies so this case has been lingering for quite long time canadian waddles however a sour point for for the philippines for the president to go to target because with no plans or just entered the us here in the last 2 years to go for the odyssey and saw me promise that they were going to take back the trash all the garbage. was
8:24 pm
left here lingering it's a 1032 years game does not have meaning 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 whatever it was able to accept these back in 2013 in the philippines this is the greatest diplomatic crisis president to long term holidays philippines and canada. gas pipeline being built from russia to germany has passed a key milestone 50 percent of north stream 2 has now been completed are too silly to try go again big schools have access to one of the vessels laying in the pipeline along the baltic sea but. there you have it what's probably going to be even the longest spaghetti strength
