1:08 pm
the regimes decision to launch air strikes sends a terrible signal of disregard toward the u.n. political process russia has claimed its so-called return it she strikes surgical i quote surgical in their precision i hope i do not need medical treatment in moscow if surgical accuracy means what we've seen where we refuse to consider terrorists as untouchable and we'll continue to fight them despite the objections of some of our partners united states reiterate that any escalation in violence in northwest syria would destabilize the region well as we have our own view on who is destabilizing the region. both sides blame each other for this latest escalation fighting had been building up escalating for days now and as often happens in the rebels' jihad this crying foul saying ass adds gassing them we continue to see signs that the assad regime may be renewing its use of chemical
1:09 pm
weapons the regime's attacks against the communities of northwest syria must end remarkably nowhere in their press statement does the us mention al qaida though age c.s. denies any affiliation they were branded change their name from nusra front but that is seen as a rule to avoid harsh scrutiny nothing is changed in their behavior still executing infidels fielding suicide bombers so imagine our surprise when we did some digging and found that the initial source of these chemical attack allegations which so concerned the us the initial source was h.t.s. looser front al qaida worth noting though is that the u.s. is saying they can't verify anything bombing attacks which have been indiscriminate in very vicious have sent some 152200000 people in it most of whom are already

internally displaced people to move again to temporary housing and create a huge burden on our very broad humanitarian effort that we in the interest in the international community are making sure we're watching this very closely also the reports of chemical weapons use so far we cannot confirm it but we are watching it it's an interesting situation the u.s. europe allies spending billions infiltrating bombing fighting isis al qaida in afghanistan in iraq in somalia all over the middle east yet in syria's. biggest stronghold taking their side if in directly demanding that the syrian government leave them alone taking seriously the claims and statements about chemical weapons as i say remarkable

terrorism specialist and for britain says damascus should go on the offensive and it. is not going to be possible to to fight terrorism without going to the terrorist strongholds and that's absolutely necessary we're talking about a group h.t.s. which is an offshoot of l. ners there are links to al qaeda so this is a very serious terrorist organization and it's also a terrorist organization that's in a place with a very large civilian population most of these civilians have been displaced or internally displaced because of the war because of other terrorist organizations and so it's crucial that this area be targeted to undermine these terrorists i think that the concern is whether chemical weapons have been used or whether there have been any said she is of chemical weapons because of the large civilian population that has also been terrorized by the strong hold that on his or offshoot h.t.s. has on this area. the world's biggest election in india is drawing
1:12 pm
to a close with the incumbent prime minister narendra modi securing another term the p.m.'s been celebrating his victory with supporters around 900000000 eligible voters over 600000000 cast ballots main opponent rahul gandhi has conceded defeat but these are trying to look at why again deeds of the candidate of the elite failed to make it bodes. have a look at this simple guy modi as a child the prime minister helped his dad sell tea at a railway station ever heard of the caste system in india well his was officially classed as backwards there was even a t.v. show called the journey of the common man showing his tough life path.

1:14 pm
a lot of appeal for people who come in from the very bottom and rising. on. you know their dynasty of congress and the levy for the last almost 70 years just completely lost it's of the. year on year it's becoming clear politicians. all around the world should have realized being a part of the elite is now out of fashion shall i remind you of what's been going on with the people's voting habits everywhere lately. i want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we did play or independence from the elites who lead us from one financial and foreign policy disaster to another. 800

1:16 pm
people of india continue to be leading an investor who. is in for upward mobility and for economic growth and to become a great poet in world politics all of this you know what we do mr movies the carrying of the hopes of the people of india just because he won doesn't mean that it's all going to be easy but definitely he has the massive mandate of the public behind him. so i think that could give him strength in his 2nd term as he embarks on what he calls the you know on the journey to india so that is actually not national opposition party what its name anymore and they have to blame themselves for it because they lost sight of the needs of the changing times and of the changing indian voter psyche. ok money is coming your way after this short break.

1:19 pm
different news agencies that are claiming that roughly 5 to 10 u.s. troops are headed for the middle east in an escalation with iran in response to their withdrawal from the nuclear deal now it's also important to note that on wednesday at the senate foreign relations committee a vote was taken and the vote would have blocked funding for any unauthorized attack on iran however that vote failed the ruling the resolution to overrule any funding for unauthorized attack alternately was not passed now we have some concerns expressed by chris murphy a democratic senator arguing that perhaps the trumpet ministration could use loopholes legal loopholes in the law to start a war with iran this is his concern. maybe trump will say but iran they've been measured c. but that's a loophole that would have any president to claim any number of middle east crisis as an emergency and then congress will never be able to object to the non-sale
1:20 pm
again now mike pompei oh the u.s. 3 secretary of state and the acting head of the pentagon were recently on capitol hill to discuss with members of congress the issues regarding the islamic republic of iran however the meeting was not particularly reported on well apparently there was quite a bit of disagreement let's review some of what was said about that meeting. our biggest focus at this point is to prevent iranian miscalculations. very much but intentionally or unintentionally. we create a situation in which a war will take place this is about deterrence not about war that's been our worry from the beginning this is blind escalation with the hope that the iranians will come to the table in the end i'm hoping that this show of force will result in deescalating not escalate i think when you do that you're talking about
1:21 pm
a war busy that will go on and on and on. now a recent poll that was conducted across the united states showed that more than half of americans a majority do believe that in the coming years there will be a war between the united states and iran now only 12 percent of the u.s. public would favor a 1st strike against iran while overall 60 percent say the usa should not start a new war against the islamic republic of iran so many watching the situation in the middle east watching the situation in washington d.c. and on capitol hill and at the white house very nervous about how things could ask a late in the coming days and weeks it will bring is the line from new york thank you. turkey's refusing to back down over its decision to buy the russian made s. $400.00 missile defense system the spot washington threatening its nato ally with sanctions if it follows through with the multibillion dollar deal made back in 2017
1:22 pm

a result of the us trying so called trade war just to put things in perspective most things that are exported from china so united states are exported as finished products the same holds true for most things exported from the us to china so if any tariffs on those products while they might affect the price levels in the us or in china and they might affect the level of trade between the us and china they simply don't destroy the global supply chain and so the rest of the world is hardly affected at all. this is boom both broadcasting around the world and covering the world of business and finance and on us all of the new breed on washington and i'm his c.i.
