recapping the week's top stories with our weekly program this is our to. the u.s. president has issued yet another warning to iran tweeting that if iran wants to fight that will be the official end of iran that is despite an offer from president hassan rouhani to hold talks to resolve the ongoing standoff in the persian gulf. 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 their neighbors are spread instability everywhere we go in the middle east . and major destabilizing influence in the middle east spread death destruction and the leaders of iran are rocketeers the world's large. financier of international

terrorism behind every problem is around and what we've been trying to do is to get iran to be him like a normal nation. the us 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 here's the deal on the dispute here daniel hawkins. seems now although he's 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 now why the sudden panic well this security alert mentions no specific threats or reasons nevertheless though officials haven't explained
11:03 pm
these recent developments and how any sort of radiant 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 has described all such moves as 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 echoed by washington as well now the root of all of these recent troubles this recent of collation was of course troops 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 could 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 want to attack iraq in 2003. that bogus intelligence.
11:04 pm
issues that's really. something that should be taken seriously the same people john bolton used to be working to work for the u.s. government at that time he is the u.s. national security advisor. and he wrote an article in march of 2015 calling for a military strike on iran iran is not interested in a military 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. iran was a key focus of 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 as well and urged tehran to stick to the 2015 nuclear deal despite the u.s.
11:05 pm
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 until its leadership is prepared to return to the ranks of responsible nations that
11:06 pm
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 democracy to use you and use them a democracy can be imposed by force the threats coming both from u.s. officials and the opposition leader one quite. who is always reminding us of the
11:07 pm
possibility of military intervention have nothing to do with democracy. what booth countries seem to agree on is that. the should decide what happens to their country they've managed to talk about all their differences and they've managed to succeed 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 christ church new zealand which was live streamed on facebook and widely shared on other platforms as well terrorism and violence a stream is a more 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
11:08 pm
violent or extremist content they have also pledged to follow up on material flying as terrorist propaganda more probably while new rules for live streams will be implemented. in new zealand 10 people have been charged for sharing the video of the christchurch massacre reminder in march this year a gunman killed $51.00 people into 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 britt. 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's a spouse 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.
11:09 pm
moderating in real time what these videos are and what the content 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 or spouse is a poll let it all opinion just by merely supporting somebody in need to recognize
11:10 pm
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 similar to a new slate 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 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 a move on there as a 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 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
11:11 pm
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's 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 bomb that is a missile with blades designed to improve the accuracy of don't drone strikes or
11:12 pm
just kill them up and house more. 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. killing. drones basically sitting on a screen and eliminating people. dehumanizing them treating them. as if you know from some other planet north giving them a basic right of proving their innocence i mean it but. 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
11:13 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 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 been apparently it was us president barack obama who ordered the creation of a new missile device that would increase the percentage in 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
11:14 pm
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. i'm 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 you know that the blades kill the. terrorists and not the civilians it doesn't seem
11:15 pm
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 had 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 point of fact this is true assassination which well it's very emotional. you my declaration of human rights kind of person that they're talking about. actually you know also whole and the notion of assassination whether precise or generalized is so totally unacceptable. we asked the pentagon to comment on the reports and we'll let you know if we get
11:16 pm
a reply. the united nations is urging the u.k. not to grant amnesty to soldiers accused of war crimes as follows a proposal from the defensemen secretary to shield personnel from investigations into offenses dating back more than 10 years penney mordaunt's plans have also been condemned by rights groups as well. it would be utterly disingenuous to have 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. any more than 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's our she's probably bored. the new boss in here has proposed a new law one that would presume soldiers innocent of any offenses committed
11:17 pm
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 taken 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 the iraq historic allegations team spent 7 years trawling through allegations of murder torture
11:18 pm
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 competed 7 tours in. all with the infantry or associated units i lost 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 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 end. back to every place them above the law it's reported that there are around $150.00 investigations looking into alleged abuses by british
11:19 pm
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 some against an 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 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 here human rights for soldiers of fighters on the battlefield that's obviously really dangerous because obviously the back of the is one place where there's lots of very
11:20 pm
wonderful people civilians and armed and others who might not be arguing about whose human rights need to get those who should have understood what they need to say just sr if you committed you resolutions you get punished if you haven't you don't so there shouldn't be an honesty or exemption for anyone anywhere the government couldn't find an easy way to say that we will now bring all of these victims back into the court and it will be our intention from this. if you had between the philippines and caliber overweighs to disposal has escalated with miller recalling its ambassador and staff on wednesday that is after canada refused to take back 100 shipping containers of household waste into the philippines back in 2013. that because shows that we are. very serious and asking them to get back their garbage otherwise.
11:21 pm
severe relations with them. it was discovered of 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 at 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 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 those earlier promises. for
11:22 pm
a very long time to fill in size. unfortunately the recipient of tol seek ways including nuclear waste from the united states in software western allies so this case has been lingering for quite long time canadian waddles however i was a summer point for for the philippines for if you're president you go to target because with no plans or just introduced us here in 2 years ago for the odyssey and saw meet you promised that they were going to take back the trash all the garbage topsy was left here lingered it's a 1030 and it to your scheme does not have been any comedian going to say that this was a private deal between a canadian company and it filippi to conquer part of 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.
11:23 pm
a gas pipeline being built from russia to germany has passed a key milestone 50 percent of nord stream too has now been completed artie's trying to gain exclusive access to one of the vessels laying the pipeline along the baltic sea but. there you have it what's probably going to be the longest spaghetti strength in the wall the making its way through the seawater and the pace is why so i mean a lot. so we're projecting germany we're going to take the friends we're taking hold. the specialist and numerous countries go out and make
11:24 pm
a pipeline. to be honest a funnel to think it over i mean we have probably all over the world political view shouldn't really come in at the end of the day if you will not supply or someone else will still work indeed guess. where that does for me i'll be back with more the weekly and let's say 36 minutes your church. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home field where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising people and i saw one on t.v.
11:25 pm
. i'm going to talk about football not the or else you can think i was going to go. by the way ways of that slide here. and those who don't are supporting cast but they have they don't care about the beer they don't care about this the beneath you know libya the only thing the cure is about their own agendas and so we might be bugged here for a long time can be really a civil war that continues for 4 months time.
11:26 pm
hello and welcome to cross talk where all things are considered peter lavelle manufacturing narratives what really happened in syria what is really happening in iran also is the u.k. becoming ungovernable. cross talking some real news i'm joined by my guest here in moscow and he's a professor at the higher school of economics as well as author of the case of western civilization and resurgence of russia and in london we crossed a charles schumer age he is a security analyst and a former u.k. army and counterterrorism intelligence officer or a german cross-talk rules in effect that means you can jump any time you want and i always appreciate charles let me go to you 1st and london you're that you flagged
11:27 pm
this story for me i'm going to read the headline from in our story on the website leaked o.p.c. w memo cast doubt on watchdogs. chemical attack conclusions in its in inverted commas their chemical attack i've always said alleged because the evidence was never forthcoming now it looks like a leak is showing that those of us that said alleged were right all along go ahead charles. yes you're right remember even in the immediate aftermath of the do a chemical attack alleged chemical attack in march 2018 in which dozens of people civilians were 40 to have been killed graphic photos you remember video shots especially of many children who suffered apparent catastrophic deaths and i don't think as much doubt that people did actually die system how they died and who was responsible that was the issue when you remember that the white house mates as with all of these alleged atrocities was there producing video that was then used as evidence by the u.k. and the us remember the u.k.
11:28 pm
actually founded the white helmets the u.k. the u.s. and others in the west funding the organization purported rescuers who produced endless propaganda. against assad think they they hide that that will actually do try and hide against assad but nonetheless they. produced all of this video alleging this attack and as a result of that the west said that assad had again used chemical weapons i'm saying that they said that he again used it because again it's disputed whether he used them in any of these circumstances and. of course i should say of course that that alleged attack was then used as the pretext for britain france and the u.s. actually mounting strikes attacking another country i think by most observers unlawfully there was no security council resolution supporting those attacks there was no need for self-defense and so on because france america and the u.k. of course went under threat any time those attacks took place and then of course.
11:29 pm
organization of appropriation of chemical weapons international chemical weapons watchdog was assigned to investigate that attack and note that the attack from the west britain american france went in well before right that investigation was even launched so the investigation concluded relatively recently and found that in its view a chemical attack. taken place but it didn't ascribe blame but what it did do was it said that if you looked in a small print there were a number of indicators i think a lot of people. perhaps a ground level investigator level scientist level as opposed to the senior management political level actually unhappy with the results of the investigation and i say that because there are many inconsistences within the report and it's almost as if certain facts have been smuggled in so for example the white house its videos included children dead children it would seem he had foam. seem to
11:30 pm
be foaming from the mouth and nose which would be an indication that a nerve agent had been used and of course the i.p.c.c. found no trace of nerve agent haven't been used despite what the western media at the time much of it and the u.s. government claimed and indio p c w point for example itself it concluded that it didn't appear that this foam was a bodily secretion in other words the subtext of that it was it's placed sort of that stage we also had evidence before that the hospital scenes were staged a b.b.c. producer said to his evidence was that those scenes had been staged and again in the report itself it was said that the people appearing in some of those videos appeared to be not ill in other words again it's a lead to an alliance it's interesting charles the the report that you're talking about there are no authors which is very odd because they would usually put their names on it there it shows that there are members over there this organization that
11:31 pm
are not competent to.
