tv Going Underground RT May 20, 2019 10:30am-11:01am EDT
time after time as you were going on the ground as the u.n. security council is briefed on threats associated with groups linked to british backed syrian rebels isis and al qaeda coming up in the show is washington about to add more to the hundreds of thousands of children killed by u.s. sanctions or the war in the middle east we get baghdad's view of u.s. policy after violation of international law and deployment of military attack aircraft to the persian gulf and with world nuclear powers threatening iran we learned to stop worrying and love the bomb with daughter allegedly dr strangelove director stanley kubrick coming up in today's going on the ground but 1st today one of the most influential companies on earth host its annual general meeting stand by for flashing images. this is the only decision i think.
yes twitter which still can give me a blue tick but is arguably so powerful it may be used to announce the end of the world talks about money today that's perhaps will be said about it's all well ian powell or that the company is linked to this last night the state department ordered all non-emergency u.s. employees in iraq to evacuate the country workers at the embassy in baghdad and the american consulate in or b.l. have been ordered to leave immediately seen by many as a prelude to a u.s. military attack on iran the world will get its news through twitter and his twitter linked to none other than they need to know be group dedicated to overthrowing the government of iran twitter has been turning to the atlantic council for advice on what to sense and what is the atlanta council according to its c.e.o. frederick kemp it is glue somebody has to be the glue that holds us all together we're dramatically remaking the hour winds. to sion for the future 6 of our 10
programs and centers have been created in the past 5 years and are aimed squarely at this challenging world these are new developments recognizing that the atlantic community can't just be about itself in the wall that has to be about reshaping the world working with our global friends to reshape the world yes that atlantic council lobby group will allegedly be gatekeepers of what news may be acceptable on twitter no surprise then that a group that hosts alleged war criminals like henry kissinger those forums are already talking about reinstalling a shot in iran after the usa presumably launches a military attack and i think reza popularity has gone up not that people are nothing i really think and monarchy would be a solution but when you look happy ron's leadership is the most prominent person on the side everyone and i think within iran too that's a full round policy analyst talking at the atlantic council about how popular the
installation of a shark in iran would be well neighboring iraq has been very clear in its opposition to u.s. war and joining me from iraq's capital city is a member of baghdad's council security committee and state of law coalition member of parliament. thanks so much for coming back on just before we get to anything about the war over here in britain to raise me as defense secretary perry mordant who's just been appointed here jeremy corbyn the shadow defense. there saying british soldiers should not be prosecuted for committing war crimes in your country given some of those war crimes maybe 10 years old i'm very sorry to say that a war crime is a war crime and the to hear such a thing coming from the cradle of democracy from britain to hear that there are politicians who are actually thinking of pardoning war criminals that their victims are still paying the price for those sources. it's
very sad very sad to hear such thing and i hope this is just maybe you and not an actual decision that will be made in the british parliament or them will be the office of defense and the criminals should be held responsible for any crime committed today or especially war crimes committed today or committed 10 years ago this war crimes should never be pardoned because otherwise what's the difference between the regular soldiers and groups like isis well let's get on to the evacuation of american diplomats from your country there now there was a bit of a problem between washington and london but now london is also saying credible threats against british subjects and were based in iraq and those threats come from iran is iran responsible for terror in your city and your country again i must
say that i'm very surprise for that the german embassy just informed us that keeping business as normal german troops are in the camps and no change in plans other members of the allies there are still functioning the same way we are we really do not understand why the united states have asked their nonessential personnel to leave iraq because that will open the way for speculation and speculation would be wide as as wide as possible because nobody knows the truth and we as far as we know here in baghdad in iraq there is no. iranian army here to effect or to threaten the united states installations. ok there are groups that are close maybe ideologically to iran
but they are under the control of the arche government and in no way that we could think that they will be involved in any action against the united states. because until now we are still speaking or we are talking about reviving the negotiations between iran the united states nobody talking about an actual war so unless there's something that we don't know off then we have to turn another page and start to work through to egypt lee and how to face. an un force unforeseen situation where maybe somebody want to change or create a proxy war on iraq is oil which we totally reject and we'll do as much as we can to stop such a plan in fairness the germans did cause some training and i think maybe i was speaking to you on this program back in 2014 even when isis was preparing to attack anybody the united states never said they were evacuating nonessential personnel
iran appears to be a bigger threat than isis according to according to this as you say the u.s.s. abraham lincoln is now in your area i don't know whether you can see it from from bus or so it does appear to be a little bit more serious than you you're making out i'm sure it's all part of the propaganda the war propaganda to put pressure on our neighboring country iran maybe with. a finger biting game see who will call out 1st but i don't think i mean we have to be very realistic 24 percent of the or war or oil of the world passes through the strait of homeowners. the still asia all the oil installations of saudi arabia qatar. bahrain and so on and so all of the arab states are on the edge of the gulf straight. in front of the iranian
firepower to enter such a dialogue such a un force seeing. rises in the middle east with iran will definitely create a nightmare for everybody and not just for iran and iraq i'm sure saudi arabia bahrain other countries that have nothing to do with was going on will be effected drastically so yes the ships are there the frigates are there the airplanes are there but the idea is the will or if the decision to make war is that has that decision been taking i don't think so i think there are people in the white house who are pushing for such action but the other city just who will will be maybe consider their opinions on this matter will advise the president of the united states that this is a. a game that nobody could tell what will come out of it so
i i personally don't think there will be a war i think there will be a pressure propaganda pressure putting maybe embargo and other steps but actually coming to war and see the missiles flying from iran into the arab peninsula and destroying emirates and destroying bahrain and destroying the states and the oil installation of iran cause i think that is. a game that nobody will dare to to to play of course russia china. presumably all these countries on iran's side the whole world arguably against the usa britain what side would iraq support well the political system in iraq unless a the parliament the parliament president will is calling for for the iraqi government to stand neither with neither party iraq to be impartial to both
camps iraq cannot be involved in any of the. games that been played iraq cannot. become part of this greater challenge that's facing the area we do know we do need a regional solution to this problem a regional solution to involve turkey saudi arabia iraq iran maybe egypt we need these countries to come up with a solution to this battle and to leave the united states alone and maybe now britain also to face iran and we pay the consequences i think that will be that is . a game that we will not take part and remind me about the actual war that's been going on for so long the economic sanctions britain obviously sanctions iran as well especially your country of course half a 1000000 children unicef said were killed by bill clinton and madeleine albright when sanctions were applied to iraq yes we had these atrocities were taking against
iraq and for from $1091.00 till the end of 2003 and the iraqi people paid tremendous price so that more sane was building his castles and his palaces while the iraqi people were facing death daily and they could not take their children to hospital that because hospitals had no extra city a nobel decision and as you said over half a 1000000 child in iraq passed away died because of the embargo on iraq iran and iran now we have a very similar situation the iranians are ordinary child and and woman of from iran are paying the price the iranian government is. has a lot of resources and they know how to survive but the or do you manage to run are paying the price the problem with that iranians are muslims and that will reflect badly with the other muslim people not the government people from tunisia morrocco
algeria egypt saudi arabia syria but. all the arab men all the arab countries or the muslim countries and the musea and so on so they will all become part of the feeling the sympathy for the iranian people iranian muslims who are paying the price for the american. policies that illegal policies so basically what the americans are doing are putting more sympathy towards iran within the countries that maybe have a political problems with the with the state of iran but the people of these countries the muslims all over the world they feel tremendous sympathy for their any and people in particular if there were a new start to show the world how the people of iran are suffering from this embargoed and suffering from this an american actions and now britain. thank you
thank you very much after the break from rogue ai to nuclear war stanley kubrick's films still predicting the future we'll ask his daughter catherine of kubrick at the design museum exhibition dedicated to his field all the support going overboard to going all the great. lakes isn't she forms part of a high altitude nature reserve. it's one of the famous internees years principle the waterway starts its journey. but it can be some. kind of like i said and. it
runs 300 kilometers from source to mouth and there are over $200.00 industrial facilities ranged its banks. i don't like the men getting in. the room here against the 4000 rice fields and supplies drinking water to 25000000 people. at the mall when yes. so many possible that are so many of our people here. join me every thursday on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then.
welcome back as the world arguably said on the precipice a full scale military confrontation between nuclear power is going to be more timely to recall stanley kubrick's iconic black comedy dr strangelove and the end of the world a new exhibition of the legendary director's work seeks to illustrate the 21st century relevance of his entire film all graphy from the warnings about ai in 2001 a space odyssey to the end to u.s. imperialism of full metal jacket we went down to the exhibition at the design museum to speak to stanley kubrick's daughter katherina. katherina the exhibition is toured in so many different countries what's the differences between other places and here in london this is its 19th outing touring
exhibition and it's i've been waiting for it. i'm here forever and it's come home this i hope will be its last resting place but it's dedicated and set up in the way that stanley used england and london in particular for his locations that is the f. 0.7 that's the one that's the one from last year in all its glory and so he had a b.n.c. mitchell camera adapted to take our plans these trucks to the tanks that we went with us everywhere because we well i was a forwards from new york to london and there were you know lots of the white house is a number one the one. we settled here in 1968 we made this our home and stanley loved working here and the way he used lies the buildings and the countryside of this country are particularly. important in this particular exhibition dizzee
americans and i want to say as a new yorker but you see lovat but obviously there's a resurgence now in serious youth crime and the clock or gorringe paints a pretty grim vision of british culture arguably. i think if you go back through history there's always been less crime it's just that we're more aware of it now because of social media and we know about things happening instantly and everything's on somebody is i phone go go go orange. which your dad and in britain. cost the family quite a bit i guess i don't think. my family suffered i was very lucky that stanley was a filmmaker who valued family very highly and he wasn't a glitzy guy clockwork orange did cause a problem because there were these campaigners you know lord longford mary whitehouse who were trying to blame the various ills of society on
a couple of films that they disagreed with straw dogs is another one they cited and what happened was that the tabloid press. were writing really horrible stories and then there were some copycat crimes. and it became very difficult for us and he was being sent very nasty letters and people were threatening him so stanley said that to the studio please please can i take the film off the screens in the u.k. because i can't live here otherwise and i think it is a testament to the great love and esteem in which he was held by the studios that they allowed him to do that it wasn't taken off the screen anywhere else there as a kid you realise that censorship was a continuous issue with your for lead infamously am i think probably would lolita i wasn't so where a clockwork orange i was i was older than i was 1617. and it never made any sense to me because that film was so much part of my life you
know malcolm was always around the house and he and dad were playing ping pong and i was on set and. so i couldn't see why people were getting so upset about it however well the gangly but but stanley didn't actually let me see the film until i was 18. he was a very protective dad but it was it's only censorship is irritation with anyone in in authority and dr strangelove which of has quite a few exhibits here tell me about the war room and why ronald reagan might have said that he thought it was the real war i don't know what ronald reagan said that but he was an actor 1st if you recall so he probably seen that movie and maybe it was just wishful thinking that he would be on a great kadam set war room. but it was a fantastic cut out of set family had seen cannot as work on the bond movies and i think it's at the end he thought it was cannes best set ever it was very strong
very powerful very shiny very black and very iconic and it's been mimicked and referred to many many times and interesting lee that the stunning insisted that the big table. it was covered in green baize even that was a black and white film because it's just sort of reference poker tables and how they were all dicing with our lives because it's being rereleased and we see the u.s. warship headed towards iran the threats against venezuela nuclear proliferation the tomic scientists bulletin saying we're closer to armageddon than even when your dad made that film zen with just a relevance he didn't make a documentary no similarities will be desireless and current u.s. administration officials. i'm not saying anything in their careers. and he loved his alice oh my god he was peter sellars biggest con. he was constantly in fits
and and peter said off he left it obviously 2001 as a film and m.g.m. executive and said that that's the end of stanley kubrick why do you think some people fail to see why that film is more about the human condition and will last perhaps i don't know how many longer than the film critics certainly 2001 was. a film that took science fiction and science future very seriously they wanted to get it right i think the initial audience is at the premieres of movie stars and film executives didn't get it and the critics were brutal and pick and stuff and they were all you know terribly upset and stanley was pacing but it was the young people without preconceived ideas without an agenda who had minds that were open who got it who i was 14 when that came out and it
blew me away and i got it you go to the media of course some people say when they want you 1001 little. bit but i mean i got it in my way but everybody who watches it whatever age you are you receive it by what kind of person you are what if you know if you're religious if you're a scientist if you're old if you're young if your preconditioned by saif i movies. you know if you're into science fiction you receive it a different way so this movie is half a century old and people are still talking about it and i actually think it is one of the great to see examples of what the art of film can do tom hanks my hair and hussein the film 200 times has said that you know all of human history is. in those 2 it's hard a century old now this movie and it hasn't really age and also human beings haven't
achieved what they thought we were going to achieve by 2001 but we were all the whole family was sitting down to watch the moon landing a year after the film was released. and we saw our earth for the 1st time and the 1st things stand they said well we didn't get a green enough we didn't get a clue nothing and he was a technical geek filming the barry lyndon scene he stayed. lenses down he was a massive camera geek yes i think if he was alive today he would be inventing apps and you know geeking out on c.g.i. because so so much is now said that he was such a family person they want to move and so full metal jacket which many people see is a brutal anti war film. palm trees in east the east end of london rather than going to a tropical location let alone all the wood to film. it's movies you can do like in
movies it's magic and if you like being at home with your dogs and cats and wife and children sleeping in your own bed what's a few palm trees why did you want to make that film given that there had been and he wore perceive that he wore vietnam films oliver stone has been on this show because said he made his trilogy later because he wanted to explore different facets of the warrior for he fell in love with the story somebody said you know how do you decide on what film you're going to make next or what book you're going to be influenced by and he said it's sheer chance and you can't guarantee or predict what or who you're going to fall in love with and think he had a poor view of human nature in general because a lot of people said he's. a political as it were maybe on the right of politics actually not a left i don't think he was on the right of politics but i do think that he had a very career i of how human beings behave and our great
weaknesses but i think he was actually quite optimistic in many ways because he said look this is what we do and this is how we behave. but we can also redeem ourselves and i was using the artistry in the famous horror movie made jack nicholson the probably sad that he could make another film wanted to make another film with him i thought i love that film and i think. you know wendy is the complete heroine of that film not only is she in an abusive marriage but she does all the work that he's supposed to be doing in the hotel and when he goes crazy she saves herself and her son and gets away so she is a complete hero as far as i'm concerned i think that is about a woman's survival skills adam savage donated this he made especially for the
exhibition. it's online. and it's a little bit more detail than the original one was this was on work of a book inspired by the ville i think it is just represent the maze. you know in normal use because there's lots of other people here i love the lapps i think it's great beautifully made spartacus i've got to ask why because that phrase i am spartacus is everywhere if i click yes. did he ever talk about working with dalton trumbo. blacklisted screenwriter they didn't get on i understand because spartacus some people have said the fight over it i think is a letter from kirk douglas explaining that there was a pretty horrid time stanley kubrick had filming that with different visions of what the spartacus story should be whether it should be a revolutionary or the selling out of revolution or how do you see spartacus will. i i know that he wasn't particularly fond of that film. because he didn't have control he was taking over from somebody else kirk was the boss on that movie.
so it was already he came in to in. a production that was already running so he took over i think. if you watch it now you can see stanley's ah in it everywhere you know how the shots are framed the war scenes the battle scenes are incredible which i think he did in spain. and i'm sure that he would have. changed things if it had been his movie but it served a purpose because it really set him up in hollywood as a respected director of the 2nd film with kirk douglas so that really put him on and i think he was only 30 when he made that film which is remarkable and i think rating in libya exactly and they were living a they were very suspicious of this new brash young kid taking over and i mom says . they soon realized that they were in good hands and that they trusted him and i
suppose i should just ask do you think putin and trump should both watch your film dr strangelove again every single day catarina kubrick thank you you can hear the background noise from the exhibition there you can see so many cubic the exhibition of the design museum in london until the 15th of september that's if the show will be back on wednesday it was one of the architects of the iran nuclear deal ambassador said it's a mythology and if the u.s. or israel is really in the driving seat on the road toward until then people talk about social media see on wednesday 2 years to the day that more than 160 were killed or wounded in an attack on an area on the ground a concert in manchester by the son of an m i 6 months of opponents of libya's what about gadhafi. this is a story about what happens after a stray bullet kills a young girl in the street. what happens to her family and daughters i'm sorry
oh my other daughter is buried in a cemetery it really messes with your head what happens to the community the public was screaming for a scapegoat up. police need is a scapegoat so why not choose a 19 year old black kid with a criminal record who better to pin this on than him and what happens in courts. shocked shocked as far off society we feel. we don't know still share this truth. and of this unfortunately you. will still not know the actual just. what holds his hands to you so. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or
rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go right to be press this is what before 3 of them or 10 people that i'm interested always in the water. first should. prosecutors that in sweden request on arrest warrant for julian jeff to reopening a rape investigation. continues to divorce itself from the wiki leaks founder on this about all his possessions and its london embassy 2 u.s. prosecutors. also and on the program a leaked document raises questions about the global chemical weapons watchdogs assessment last year as chemical attack in the syrian city of duma. observations of the sea.
