a very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at our takes here in moscow drawing us this hour. the u.k. home secretary has handed a u.s. extradition request for joining us songs to the courts which will now consider the whistleblowers fate a hearing into the matter is scheduled for this friday edward stache he reports from london. well it's a dark day for doing a silent and his supporters as the u.k.'s home secretary sajid javid has just signed an order paving the way for dear innocents to be extradited to the united states now he himself said that he was pleased that you're innocent just behind bars and that justice will prevail in this procedure we're very pleased that the police were finally able to apprehend him and now he's right behind bars because he broke you cade law i want to see justice done all the time so we've got a legitimate extradition request so i've signed it but the final decision is now with the court well it must be noted that the final decision is for the courts and
12:02 pm
the courts alone of course the united states does want your innocence for 17 indictments under the espionage act for publishing and delivering classified communications and documents all related to the iraq war and the war in afghanistan but also conspiring and even indeed hacking government computers and publishing these secret documents now the platform of which was used to do this is wiki leaks and the editor in chief india says that you're innocent will not receive a fair trial i do believe that we're going to win this with legal argument there is no chance the julian will get a fair trial here in the u.k. or in the u.s. of course unless there's a change of reporting that people actually start speaking out we're not talking about a prosecution we're talking about a persecution welcome to the scientist serving a 50 week sentence in the u.k. as belmarsh prison that's a high security prison here in the u.k.
12:03 pm
and that was for skipping bareback and 2012 now this is a video filmed inside the belmarsh prison by an inmate and it was a tame by artie's video agency ruptly and as you can see he looks somewhat i'm a c 8 and rather skeletal there in the belmarsh prison now last month genocide was actually moved to the medical ward there and his father earlier this week said that you're innocent is recovering from a dramatic weight loss during his time. i'm in the belmarsh prison and indeed the ecuadorian embassy of course students aren't was thrown back into the public eye back in april where he was forcibly removed by british police from the london's ecuadorian embassy where he was actually seeking political asylum and he was holed up there for almost 2 and a half 1000 days which is the sum of almost 7 years in confinement when it isn't just the united states that want your innocence we're also hearing that swedish prosecutors want your innocent for sexual assault allegations made against him
12:04 pm
something that your innocence he himself they might need denies he also believes it's a pretext to then extradite him to the united states. to oil tankers have caught fire in the gulf of oman in suspected attacks incident occurred amid high tensions in the middle east and triggered a surgeon or oil prices it comes a month after similar events in the region back then the us accuse iran of sabotaging 2 saudi oil tankers something the islamic republic has denied i discussed the details earlier with our correspondent don quarter. we still have a lot of unconfirmed information but much of it has been cleared up since the explosions the main thing we know is that all of the crew members are safe and accounted for iranian state t.v. reports 44 crew members as well as 2 oil tankers were involved in this incident that happened by the strait of hormuz 11 russians were on board and the tankers were sailing under the flags of panama and the marshall islands now there were witnesses who said that one vessel called from tel tear was in flames quote on fire
12:05 pm
and adrift and the iranian state media also posted pictures of this on their twitter account now the company that owns both of the oil tankers frontline told russian media that there doesn't appear to be an oil spill or any pollution as a result of the flames going back to the beginning of the incident it became known after the u.s. navy reported 2 distress calls thursday morning well they claimed that they helped out with the rescue effort iranian state media is saying that the an iranian ship was the 1st to be on the scene and they rescued all 44 of the crew members now the u.s. fleet commander later said that it was possible that there was an attack that caused this explosion and some reports are saying that one or 2 of the ships was hit by a torpedo others are suggesting that there were naval mines involved but none of these are confirmed yet and frontline is also said that it's too early to say whether or not this was an attack now this is strikingly familiar to an incident
12:06 pm
that occurred in may tell us a bit more about that yeah definitely well back in may like you said there was an attack on for oil tankers near the united arab emirates now the government there originally denied the attack happened altogether but later they said that it was the result of an unnamed state actor sabotaging the oil tankers with naval mines now although the u.s. was much more straightforward in accusing iran of this national security adviser john bolton said that he was almost certain that iran was responsible and response to ron called this accusation read. phyllis and called bolton a war monger and these harsh words there are not random there amidst heightened tensions that continue to persist in the persian gulf today let's not forget that the united states put their naval fleet there in the persian gulf and are at the same time saying that they're not trying to raise tensions or start a war on top of that washington has already said that they want to exert maximum economic pressure on iran after the failure of the nuclear deal so this is
12:07 pm
definitely a delicate situation that could easily become more volatile. the u.s. is boosting its military presence in poland as part of a new deal with donald trump or thought will host an extra $1000.00 american troops by u.s. fighter jets and purchased american liquefied natural gas moscow mean all says it regrets the u.s. military buildup in poland donald trump praised his post counterpart and washington . u.s. polish alliance it's a very specialized with very special people poland will still. basing an infrastructure to support military presence of about $1000.00 american troops polish government will pay for this so america is bolstering its military presence in poland they are adding to the $4500.00 troops that are already in the country on a rotating basis now it sounds dramatic but it's actually somewhat short of the request from poland for a permanent us military base which they intended to name for trump in the end the
12:08 pm
usa agreed to shift non-combat troops to poland who had already been stationed elsewhere in europe so who are the poles trying to defend themselves from because. russia is again showing its unkind unfriendly imperial face russia is always looking out to take us territory yes those menacing russians on holmes border just waiting for the right moment to invade but it seems that donald trump doesn't quite share that view do not see the rush to read the whole 1000000 and 2 you wrote. i hope. we're with everybody and i hope i think that russia will treat poland with respect now while the russian threat may be imaginary the money that poland is showing the united states is very real big buyers of our equipment to our planes and our munitions in every form in every respect at this point we've got praising warsaw for meeting its nato spending requirements 2 percent of their g.d.p.
12:09 pm
trump is encouraging poland to buy more than 30 f. 35 fighter jets even had one of them fly over the white house on the sunny afternoon due to gave an encouraging wave and there's more money from poland coming america's way trump ale the deal in which the country would purchase 2000000000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas from the united states furthermore at this point trump is praising poland for its baltic pipe project to support poland's construction of the baltic pipeline. which will help european countries diversify their energy sources it's desperately needed them that's the way to go so the big bad russians have got poland into a situation where it has no choice except to increase its military spending purchase a bunch of fancy new after 35 fighter jets and import liquefied natural gas all the way from the other side of the planet yes trump the salesman is happy to make
12:10 pm
a deal it seems that sometimes having a bogeyman can be very convenient kaleb up and r.t. new york political commentator and journalist john white says the move by the polish later or weigh heavily on his country's taxpayers. fortunate that the polish government is confusing their revolutionary russian league team meeting with the russian federation of 280 nothing can used to wind its understanding of russia for what to say judy because this is redolent early changes change the norms when it comes to pool and being very provocative and try to engage the u.s. and provoke a different actions against russia a very sad day for coolish the polish people taxpayers' money is going to be wished each on trade opium for these u.s. troops this year to tional deployment and also the poles want even more they want. a military base up there in the u.s. military base in a country if they go to that state and who knows what the consequences will be because it's only the sheen of russia up to now the not responding to these are
12:11 pm
people that he should have a load situation to reach people who will not put it remains accused us. human rights watch says a british government report whitewashes saudi arabia's role in yemen's humanitarian crisis the british foreign office report states that the conflict in yemen has had a devastating impact on people's lives but it only mentions saudi arabia one of the sides in the war in connection with the alleged use of secret prisons. and missed international alleged the use of secure. prisons in areas under the saudi led coalition's control there was no reliable process for inquiry into detainees held at these facilities human rights watch adds that riyadh's actions in yemen could amount to war crimes and accuses the u.k. of turning a blind eye the reports most striking weakness is on the yemen while acknowledging the many civilians killed in the conflict it ignores a saudi led coalition's responsibility indiscriminate saudi led coalition air
12:12 pm
strikes in yemen have huge hospitals funerals weddings markets civilian homes and even a school bus killing and wounding thousands many of these attacks maybe work crimes since 2015 britain has sold 4700000000 pounds worth of weapons to riyadh making it one of the biggest exporters of arms to the kingdom that issue has sparked heated exchanges in the u.k. parliament many times we have requested comment from the british foreign office although so far we have not had a response a saudi led coalition began its bombing campaign against the rebels in yemen which riyadh sees as terrorists back in 2015 saudi arabia insists it's doing all it can to reduce civilian casualties meanwhile the un has described the situation in the country as the worst manmade humanitarian crisis on earth and warning you may find some of the following images upsetting.
12:13 pm
the bomb is a killing the cholera epidemic the number of people who are in hunger because of the blocked. data etc the foreign office is trying to obfuscate or hide from the british the fact that they are supporting the illegal action saudi arabia and its. in its war on the people of yemen the united kingdom just like the united states has interests in the region they want to protect these unelected dictatorial monarchical governments and
12:14 pm
order to secure oh natural gas resources and the people of yemen fighting for their liberation. to their foreign policy go there global news update continues after this short break. hold. on i'll tell something wrong. i don't really just don't home. i don't want to see how this thing comes out. and it didn't. last the trail. when something find themselves worlds apart when you see some of the common ground.
12:15 pm
quantitative easing of 4 q.e. 4 is now well under way can taper a ponzi scheme no economics matters only money printing and stock manipulation. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy foundation let it be an arms race in this spirit a dramatic development that only really. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. welcome back alliance of new year skeptic parties in the european parliament have come together to form a bloc called identity and democracy will be the 5th largest group in the parliament with around 10 percent of the seats and they've also now announced they
12:16 pm
intend to oppose the extension of anti russian sanctions if national has the details. but have been hearing about the nationalist alliance in the european parliament for quite some time already and on thursday in brussels the leader of france's national rally magnet then announced it officially saying it is a drastic change to the political chess board of the european union identity and democracy or shortly id that's the blocks name will unite the right wing parties from 9 european countries common direction common goal to take power from brussels and give it to the country members capitals for that very reason they are often referred to in the media as you are skeptics shortly after the new born party presentation its core chairman who is also known here in germany as the federal spokesperson for the alternative for germany a right wing party presented one of the features of the party's chorus that is definitely too different from the european union sanctions against russia make no
12:17 pm
sense let's take a listen we oppose the extension of sanctions they did not fix the actions of russia we can extend them for another 10 years it will not change anything it came less than a week after the russian president vladimir putin said that russia is dreaded to move towards the european union but the you should take the 1st step if the use policy towards russia changes will not only welcome it will take reciprocal steps this also applies to the countries sanctions we were 1st to apply after the certain restrictions on us then you alliance will take 73 seats of this 751 seat european parliament 10 percent compared to 5 percent in the last previous significant change 8 makes it to feast largest alliance in the palm and which makes the chances are very high that the party will be successful in pushing forward its policy and we indeed are going to see the changes then talked about.
12:18 pm
because live now to m.e.p.a. elect maximillian cross who is a member of the identity and democracy alliance now your group has 73 lawmakers from 9 different countries are you satisfied with that result. i mean it's above 10 percent so less than 50 percent say morrow but of course that as a proud start and we now have the base of the fundamental chain saying fundamentally that's what we want to have so yes i'm satisfied and this year a skeptic alliance has twice as many members as in its predecessor in the previous 5 year session what brought about this swing. people see what the e.u. brings all over that all over europe. bring them to become more euro skeptic so we have a elite up in brussels that is lost contrary to the groans at the reality of the
12:19 pm
member states. the people want to get control back they want to sort of govern their countries and you know their best possible long a centrist politicians bring more coal or more and more power to brussels and start on bringing him back to the democracy which is in the national status or in the pan has said that euro skeptics have actually changed the political chessboard of the european union here however faction is not really big enough to be able to block new laws so do you agree with what the french politician has said i agree because you have to see that there are who was going to fracture as you see are. and many things house the same agenda as we have and even a bit of the european peoples party a fraction which is the largest you have to respect for piracy debt. there's a part of us also very close to us so the front line and are very clear in brussels
12:20 pm
and you have to understand i was as a core but there are many alliance and party of around us that support us and the major issues so in fact we have about 25 to 30 percent of your skeptic parties and only did core is 10 percent of our friction and we had a lot of alliance with whom we cooperate so yes we are stronger than it seems and we are stronger on temple so now another one of your members said that the alliance opposes the extension of sanctions on russia do you think that this message will be heard i think so. i live in the federal city of sex only in germany and you can hear the government or the. politician now of course or stop the sanctions against russia because we get stronger and stronger we are to see what issues we have and they try to read those issues and those sanctions are
12:21 pm
not a very popular one to people in europe they want to extend they want partnership with russia instead of a new cool war and as long as the remainder issue on the table in brussels and all of the federal states and germany and and i don't their nation states and europe us type of politicians come and put pressure so there is new dynamic within that. and i am optimistic that if we can change the relationship to russia back to a good partnership for the benefits of both sides and their way from their new cool water boss and. so obama and more approach like the 1000000 cry like that the identity and democracy of traction thank you for your time and your unique insight in this story thank you very most. u.s. national security advisor john bolton says reports of disagreements between donald trump and his top aides are part of a distant from ation campaign by the likes of russia china and iran he also branded
12:22 pm
american journalists who write such reports as to not differs of those regimes north korea iran. venezuela russia and china pride too so this information about the administration and to say that the president and his advisors are divided and things like that. refers these regimes in the american press immediately pick it up. come on mr bolton in case you've been living under a rock the past few years u.s. president donald trump doesn't get along too well with the rest of capitol hill close to 30 of his team members have either resigned or were fired since he got into office his term has been haunted by a cascade of information leaks by insiders saboteurs and trump hasn't always been on the same page with the rest of the administration. you think north korea remains
12:23 pm
a nuclear threat yes but the president said he doesn't it's not what he said i mean i know i know personally we did it and there is no longer a nuclear threat from north korea. i had a very good talk with president putin is. that looking at all to get involved in venezuela he was apparently ready to leave after the airport but the russians talked him out of that is that right that's right now it could be because the trump is in a tory asli divisive figure by nature could be because he's flip flops so much that he's policy u. turns were created into actual flip flops well you know he's sometimes difficult to keep up with and you know after all he doesn't have to be a bad thing a clash of ideas challenging each other on policies is synonymous with democracy isn't it i really didn't use 3 times due to how unbelievable it is that the russians in other bad guys spread this information about to divided opinions of the
12:24 pm
us president and his closest aides seriously when the president and his inner circle had different opinions it is a sign of the democratic process in the country doesn't washington defend this value with such zeal so yeah it could be a good thing except it probably stops being one when things move from the realm of professional to personal to go to work for a man who. is pretty on discipline and doesn't doesn't like to read doesn't read briefs. report's doesn't doesn't like to get into the details of a lot of things bricks to listen didn't have the mental capacity needed he was dumb as a rock and i couldn't get rid of him fast enough he was lazy is how we already know a lot about the discord ready in the trumpet ministration from former trump ministration officials i mean let's face it what could north korea do to sow discord in the us what could be his way all of you it's doesn't make any sense the
12:25 pm
white house does not want to appear to be fragile they're now facing a reelection very soon in 2020 and boldness trying to help trump cover is behind by claiming others are responsible for discord and not those within the wife of course the message being that you know john bolton is looking for a pretext to go to war somewhere and he's a very devious man he likes to write. that's a news break down for this hour and that's all for me as well today but you're not you know harvey will be taking up our and about 30 minutes at the latest thanks for tuning in wherever you may be. so you say that brings us to the end of the series if we could just let josie marino walk away so we decided to treat up still host to a very special farewell party and by goes.
12:26 pm
on. we walk along an interesting path as a team but this time to go back to the punchline and thanks for putting one sister to the body. we were. the only thing that i didn't enjoy was my then singing. in moscow my dancing. on ice. well thankfully we nailed it literally there we go. oh why a paradise with so much all year round turned into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these
12:27 pm
chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up and suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals can. to poison the white and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental races going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. what politicians do so. they put themselves on the line they did accept the reject . so if you want to be president and she. was somehow wanted.
12:28 pm
to go right to the press this is what the 3 of them would be that. interested in the why is it that. this should be. greetings and sell you take should you know for anyone watching this show by now you know that war is a business and this week the business of war is making headlines to military industrial giants weapons manufacturers at the autumn aerospace titan united technologies agreed on sunday to a $120000000000.00 dollar busy merger with the war industry this is the equivalent of kevin durant's siding with the golden state warriors the washington post reports that the pope that post merger the company should be expected to make
12:29 pm
a strong play for the defense department's emerging hypersonic missiles program it also will give rate the on a sizable foothold in the commercial aerospace market for the 1st time in recent memory. this should provide some real competition for the le bron james of the military industrial complex the one and only lockheed martin the world's largest merchant of death naturally the news of this merger landed like a crate the bloody raw beef for the big parade for both the anti trust to hand the antiwar activists upon hearing of the deal daniel hanley and any trust advocate took to twitter to claim that we should be have extreme skepticism to any defense merger a key fact about the industry and the congress must approve all foreign purchases and that the us government is their largest customer mergers thus directly and clearly enhance their ability and need to lobby great because that is
12:30 pm
definitely what we need more of here on capitol hill of defense industry lobbying fantastic and raytheon technologies which is the new name militia to move the merger goes through we'll have plenty of money to throw around my friends it's estimated that once combined the company will be valued at roughly $100000000000.00 with an annual revenue of about $74000000000.00 per year and i'll guess that's mostly tax dollars. but you know let's not forget we're all about freedom and peace here not money so what the war business in bloom and the biggest merchants of death rattling the planet with dollar signs in their eyes and conflict on the horizon i think it's time to start watching the hawks. if you want to deal with. the banks real the truth. and the lies but the bottom. line what they like.
