i. i. feel. anger both in the u.k. and europe after a prime minister to resign may try to. deal by promising m p's a vote on a 2nd referendum if they back. with you elections just around the corner say there's no sign of any russian interference despite much media and political hype for the country. as the race for the 2020 us democratic presidential nomination heats up. brands reports she's getting donations from kremlin that's fake news to face criticism over that response as well.
2:01 am
and the u.s. state department vows a quick response to what it says is an expected chemical attack by syrian government forces that soften donald trump claims he's under pressure from the arms industry to keep up military adventures aboard. for moscow what's your art international and. thanks for joining us on the program . that's the reason is up against it makes a 4th bid to push through a deal this time around the british prime minister's dangling the carrot of a vote on a 2nd referendum before m.p.'s but that as well as other last ditch concessions have been derided from all sides worker reports from london. well she promised a bold new offer and here is to raise a maze of false the incarnation of a brags it bell she needed something different enough to sell to m.p.'s and there
2:02 am
are a number of concessions that she's made she's going to be making the case to the country over the next couple of weeks there are 10 main points too many to list but the 2 main headline grabbers are is that she will offer m.p.'s a vote on the option of a customs union and that big big carrot that she's offered m.p.'s will get to vote on a 2nd way friend but only if they pass the deal in the 1st place the government will therefore include in the withdrawal agreement bill introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a 2nd referendum and this must take place before the withdrawal agreement can be russia fired and ready there are rumblings in westminster from all sides of the political spectrum. because it's basically a rehash of what was discussed before the s.n.p. renewed to boot for the deal that does not teach history using
2:03 am
a single market that she. says. the job. exactly. the reason mays never wanted it herself she's always said that she would just like to stick to implementing the results of the 1st one but she's trying everything she can to try her already dented political legacy she is after all a one issue prime minister she came to power almost 3 years ago promising to deliver on gregg's it and she's still trying to salvage that take a listen to how grooming if her deal is rejected again some suggest leaving without a deal but whatever you think about outcome paula has been clear it will do all it
2:04 am
can to stop it. if not no deal then it would have to be a general election or a 2nd referendum that could lead to revocation and no bricks it at all to reason may said that this is the last chance for m.p.'s to vote head deal through after all the default setting in october is for a no deal with drawl but it's also to reason may's last chance to save her political legacy into the never on the brags that she's promised throughout her leadership she's failed to push have built through parliament 3 times already she's failed it takes weeks of cross party negotiations the u.k. was meant to leave the e.u. on the 29th of march that didn't happen and the u.k. wasn't supposed to be taking part in the e.u.'s parliamentary elections which is happening so naturally all the questions at the end of that big speech from journalists trying to make sense of it focused on one issue and that was when is
2:05 am
she going to step down or historian island scared says that the reason why it's got no chance of going to her deal over the line says anathema to the vast majority of conservative m.p.'s. approach to a new customs deal and a referendum break promises she made in the last manifesto so i fear because labor said it wouldn't support the new deal suka even less support this time rhonda should go last time did his dad just a dreadful mess and mean it doesn't really appeal to either side i mean she has her hands are tied because you know she signed a deal with the european union and the european union is going to change the main structure of the deal so she can that surely propose anything radically new so that she's playing around the edges. and suit simply doesn't have enough troops to
2:06 am
maneuver. i was britain hasn't left the e.u. just yet or take part in european elections on thursday bracks it is set to dominate the votes which some people think shouldn't even be happening at all i mean a supporter of a 2nd referendum for 2 and a half years it's just gone on too long and i never once heard of what it is i think this is a terror trial coming. to get here bricks if they did a hearing about it you know me voting in the european elections why is that i well i want to leave european well it's like this we absolutely photo is really important. or i think it's completely useless and a waste of time for the english and a waste of money for the european union it's going to cost us a lot and it is only enough i don't want to don't know the english have never
2:07 am
really been in the europe they always had the conditions in the surrealist in absurd. so i think it's important that they can vote they are still a part of europe at the moment. i think that the british like the french and all europeans leave in democratic countries and as long as democracy exists it is necessary that everyone can express their ideas and ideals some will it seems intuitive to me i can understand but it's difficult to motivate people to world to take part in an election that they should know this but separating. while giving europeans a headache ahead of these e.u. elections some appear more concerned about something else that's not happened russian meddling party's peter all of the reports on how the criminals influence despite being much touted is as yet nowhere to be found. earlier this week fans were gripped by the series finale of game of thrones but there's also plenty of fun
2:08 am
of a nother fantasy tale the story of meddling in a you elections winter isn't the only thing that's coming so is the risk of interference in our elections and guess who the suspect is we investigate the claims of russia's attempts to influence and undermine the democratic system in europe fears that russia is infiltrating the very heart of european democracy and we're starting to see the early signs of essential you kind of a repeat of what we saw in the us elections in regard to russian hacking and russian tampering but just as some fans of the wranglings of west roswell left disappointed by the way their show ended a dragnet operated by social media companies looking for misinformation and propaganda has turned up well nothing nothing from google so far we haven't seen any interference on the platforms what about facebook there have been no published accounts of attacks specifically related to the e.u.
2:09 am
election today twitter that's full of angry people already they must have turned up something we're always seeing a baseline level of it but nothing that has coalesced around a specific topic theme or group or even country but there was one area where it was said that there was evidence of russian interference the fact that we here at r t the russian news service sputnik have been talking about the e.u. elections they have been picking up the theme consistently over the past few months they do seem to be pushing slightly anti establishment messages. we've seen european politicians focus their attention on alleged russian meddling but what about real issues russia has been a very common scapegoat these past years i was in western democracies the narrative these past years must be careful there are russian does russian influence the russians are behind this russian is trying to just your democracy and now we don't
2:10 am
have any proof for what the drollest are asked what have you got they don't have any and the whole narrative just collapsed politicians today were for your party russia in moscow behind the rise in the populist movements don't have an argument anymore or they're using this argument every day and they're in a very bad situation once you prove that there is no more problem coming from russia then you have to face the fact that the problem is coming from yourself and the teams that you have chosen to run the country. and big corporations meanwhile have been quite open about who they support with some actively opposing the growing euro skeptic sentiment among those singing the praises of a united europe a german airline lufthansa as well as digital music streaming service spotify and the german car manufacturer folks who are going to the c.e.o. of investment managers to all those large corporations have a vested interest. the attitude of the big corporations banks has always been the same of course they have 3 but in this news european environment it's not
2:11 am
a surprise to me that they are actively and strongly supporting the pro european views they have a very large network powerful network and they use they use it they leverage in it in order to bring up their policies the policies they like the most many of the issues as been underestimated or even ignored by europe and by these large corporations there are real issues that europe and this large corporation either got in didn't respond to you know they come up with some ok europe is not is not perfect but you know there is something to fix where there is a lot to fix there is a lot to fix because they have moved too much forwards into a project without taking into consideration legitimate issues raised by the population. it seems like the specter of russian meddling is set to hang over the 2020 u.s. presidential election as well democratic hopeful tulsi gabbard is facing criticism
2:12 am
for allegedly receiving funds from people in the scribes as putin apologists government has rubbish the claims as fake news there by drawing fire from some quarters for adopting don't trump style of language. it's a whole lot of news what i am focused on is what is in the best interest of the american people what is in the best interest of our national security keeping the american people safe a recent article claims that the hawaii congresswoman received donations from 3 individuals one a russian studies professor at new york university another a vocal supporter who nonetheless was arrested in russia in 2016 and the 3rd a former employee at this channel who appears to have donated to go but under the alias goofy grapes the sums in question however seem minor at least relative to the his theory they've generated 2 of the 3 contributors reportedly provided to go about it with a $1000.00 each just a drop in the ocean for a presidential campaign the size of the 3rd donation hasn't been revealed the
2:13 am
former candidate for new york city council told us it's absurd to single out these 3 donors from thousands. i don't think they're credible allegations at all. you know i guess i think this whole thing about russia is so completely overblown what the media is doing is making it that she's an essentially an agent of the kremlin which is so ridiculous so i think what she needs to do is essentially tell the world that listen re people with. you know minimal ties to russia not even ties to russia doesn't that's an independent opinion i've given to my campaign i did 65000 donors so you know you can't really make an argument that you know that mike mike hanna to see is supported by russian propaganda machine you know it's silly and i being if she keeps. kind of promoting that message people will be able to see what's really going on. the u.s.
2:14 am
state department says it's expecting new chemical attacks by syrian president bashar al assad and is promising a quick response washington has failed to substantiate claims that earlier attacks against syrian citizens were actually conducted by the government this comes after donald trump recently claimed he'd been pressured by the u.s. arms industry to keep thousands of american soldiers in syria to live well paid reports. so who sets us foreign policy well when it comes to the projection of military force of the constitution and common sense says that's the president your sound george w. bush put it but i'm the decider and i decide what is best but recent statements from donald trump throw that into question here is what he said if you do have a military industrial complex they do like war you know in syria with the caliphate so i wipe out 100 percent of the caliphate i shall want to bring the troops back home to place one crazy they want to keep it there you have people here in wa she
2:15 am
want it they never want to leave some day people will explain what this is and if you will do have you do have a group and they call it the military industrial complex so according to trump he wanted to bring troops back from syria but he was compelled to leave several 100 of them there why well according to him the usa has quite a powerful military industrial complex and if our president is fighting against it it seems that he is hiding this fight rather well recently donald trump appointed patrick shanahan as his new secretary of defense shanahan spent 30 years at boeing which is one of the largest defense contractors in the united states and one of the world's biggest arms manufacturers and like many other companies contracted by the pentagon boeing is having a great year. folks in this industry have actually pointed to what they call the trump effect have you seen that in terms of our allies and our spending not only have i seen we think it's the best time we've ever seen in
2:16 am
a long time for the defense industry but it's not just the truck presidency that has been a boon to the military industrial complex many different political leaders in the united states have campaigned on a platform of peace and then expanded wars once they've taken office. nations making progress toward freedom will find america is their friend. we're promoter of values. piece. we've lost thousands of american lives spent nearly a trillion dollars alienated allies neglected emerging threats all in the calls of fighting a war for well over 5 years in a country that had absolutely nothing to do with the 911 attacks.
2:17 am
i will never send our finest into battle unless necessary and i mean absolutely necessary and will only do so if we have a plan for victory with a capital. if we've learned nothing from history the 34th us president dwight d. eisenhower warned the public about unwarranted influences when he left office over 60 years ago in the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether sought or runs on by the military industrial complex . the but pension by the dissenters rise of misplaced power exists and will persist . we must never let the weight of this combination in danger are limiting our democratic process. we should take nothing for granted. in the american people
2:18 am
don't want war presidents always run as the peace candidate and then you know we never did leave the starwars even richard nixon during the vietnam war was only elected because he was seeing he had a secret plan for ending the vietnam war as it turned out the secret plan was to escalate the war and more troops. and in large. you know these large monopolistic companies wanting to get a huge bunch of money the light threats of war they like active war of the. you know they're the war mongers and they have an enormous amount of influence in that commensurate with the amount of money that they couldn't change. protests over upside and then the easing capital where people are calling fall over the results of the presidential election sudden more off to the.
2:19 am
par chime in the us in training and endgame the battle lines have been drawn and demands made in this trade war it appears full size are preparing for the long haul what does it mean to win a trade war what does it mean to lose and how far could this test. are we entering into era the end of flag money no money with flags on it or part of a token tade or royal person good day. seemed wrong. just don't. mean you get to stamp
2:20 am
out this day become active. and engaged it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. the program 6 people have been killed and 200 injured in the protests in the in the knees in capital lotsof the result of the presidential election was announced i. was. seriously leaving the central election committee confirmed the victory of current president joe called widow however several 1000 supporters of his opponent retired military general to be armed so talk to the streets so claims there was widespread
2:21 am
fraud and he's going to challenge the result police used tear gas on some protesters who refused to leave the area at the end of the rally as they began to help the police with objects. and britain's days as a colonial power may be long over but it self image is a global power might get a fresh slap in the face on wednesday united nations is expected to vote overwhelmingly in favor of returning the u.k. controlled shake or silence in the indian ocean back to mauritius. and share your silence have been at the center of a decades long dispute between britain and morris which in the sixty's ceded the territories in exchange for independence plus $3000000.00 pounds the move allowed the united states in 971 to build a military base on diego garcia the largest of the atolls resume a victim about 1500 islanders to make room for the u.s.
2:22 am
base in diego garcia was an important launchpad for u.s. missions in both iraq and afghanistan the u.s. lease runs until 2036 so washington will join britain in today's vote sabrina's john from the show goes for a few g. groups as america's stopping islanders from returning. my question has been always why they don't want. to return on our bridges over again dawg how much. this. is managed more sneak by the us for me as a 2nd generation. it's dad told them to realize why they don't eat the role. of the international court of justice rule that had illegally split the island and should for turn back to more riches britain rejected the ruling and more issues took the issue to the general assembly in 2017 only 15 delegates
2:23 am
opposed. bit some of the u.k. also aren't happy up britain's ownership of the island's. i wish to express my concern that the government appears ready to disregard international law and ignore a ruling of the international court of justice and the right of chad gossoons to return to their homes this is not a matter of degree or nice ation for the general assembly it's a bilateral sovereignty dispute between the united kingdom. it is a complete case and double standard and in fact many african nations will have voted. in favor of the england giving it up right now the big occupier of this island is not the u.k. there are some you case that staffers from the military because it's our military but it's the united states that controls it a lot of them drones there have. got to stand over the past few years came from this base it's also the the there's also a prison there
2:24 am
a kind of more isolated version of one time and i think at best what we can expect might be some kind of financial compensation for the shah gaiety and living in marriages it's sad to say but to keep quiet unless we see political change elsewhere and unless the united states decides that it wants to change its foreign policy for good. lawmakers in the u.s. congress have been briefed by trumpeter ministration officials on threats coming from iran that have been averted thanks to washington's latest show of force in the middle east some democrats didn't buy what they heard. it deterred attacks based on a repository of assets to turn attacks against american forces it's been our worry from the beginning that this is a blind escalation with the hope that the iranians will come to the table in the
2:25 am
end or the hope that the iranian people will rise up and topple the regime. very much but intentionally or unintentionally we couldn't create a situation in which a war will take place at. among its recent steps against iran the u.s. the brought an aircraft carrier complete with bombers in the persian gulf prior to that the trouble ministration impose sanctions on a rainy unoiled promising to expand them to any country which buys it iranian president has responded by saying u.s. pressure can't break the radian people claims to iran is actually grown more resilient thanks to sanctions after tansey spoke to former iranian negotiator hussein must have been about the current situation between the 2 countries via the full interview later today on r.t. international. what are you see during president trump i have never seen such conflicting confusing a strategy. from the u.s. side in regard to iran between all signatories of iran nuclear deal
2:26 am
the us has completely violated we draw from the deal while it did the united nations security council the europeans including the u.k. they have failed to deliver a clear commitments for normal trade and business with iran for 2 years i don't believe such a strategy president trump conflicting strategy bullinger strategy. strategy a president is following at the current currently i don't believe iranians would ever be ready to negotiate with such administration except if president changes it strategy comply with the nuclear deal approved by united nations security council and then respect iran. respect the principles of mutual respect non interference then i believe there will be
