3:34 am
a movement whose essence was to abandon ostentatious outmoded ideas and embrace the modern world dominic kane al-jazeera berlin. not all companies around the world a streamlining and tightening their operations fully aware that their industry is changing fast they also want to be in pole position when it comes to new technology like the cars that drive themselves as john hendren reports now from the detroit auto show. this self driving car truly is a ride to these boxy four wheelers at the north american international auto show or autonomy is vehicles not of the future they're here now are in speed snap car lets you snap a passenger pod or a delivery pod onto what is sensually is a skateboard most are from small manufacturers but major manufacturers including ford plan to sell fully autonomy's vehicles in the next two years these fords are

3:49 am
alone barbara starr you're watching our jazeera live from london also coming up in the program a car bomb explodes inside a police academy in the colombian capital killing at least nine people battered and bruised the zimbabwe security forces are accused of using excessive force to crack down on fuel protests and why you at least sixty percent of the world's wild coffee species are at risk of extinction. thank you for joining us u.s. president donald trump has unveiled the revamped missile defense strategy among the concerns highlighted in the pentagon review on north korea iran china and russia and in a throwback to ronald reagan's one thousand nine hundred star wars initiative it recommended studying experimental technologies including space based weaponry that coud could shoot down missiles our goal is simple to ensure that we can detect and
3:50 am
destroy any missile launched against the united states anywhere anytime anyplace we will recognize that space is a new world striding domain with the space for such leading the way my upcoming budget will invest in a space based missile defense layer. new technology. it's ultimately going to be a very very big part of our defense and obviously our offense. particular plane joins us live now from from the pentagon patty very interesting there at the president focusing initially on defense but also literally at the end of that clip mentioning a fence as well and what is this new missile strategy exactly. what you know i
3:51 am
think that remains to be seen i mean this is a very big deal if you was to get his way lots of countries have been reluctant to weaponize space obviously that would be a big concern across the globe the president put that in there before that they had really been sending the message that this was much more about defense but the president saying no we want to look at all fence of weapons now he said my budget will put that in well that doesn't matter the president sends a budget to congress and they can say sure well funded or you know we're not going to fund that and there's literally nothing he could do about that there was a briefing after the president left the pentagon and the question reporters kept coming back to is how much is this going to cost i mean think about it they want to invent a laser that can go on a drone that can shoot down a missile that technology doesn't exist they're talking about retrofitting the f. thirty five fighter to try and take down missiles and then of course they are the goal of having a satellite that has sensors in space and also creating some kind of weapon that can go into a satellite in space that could fire take down any one them
3:52 am
a missile soon after it was launched this is really sort of a science fiction sort of stuff how much is that going to cost and interestingly they said here you know we're not going to get into that so although the message surprises trying to send as we're doing this we're going to weaponize space that is so far from certain that we should keep that in mind when talking about it. so it seems strange then as to why it's sold being announced in this way now. well because congress has said to the pentagon you have to come back from time to time and review our defense of missile posture this happened under barack obama president barack obama in two thousand and ten before that as you mentioned ronald reagan and this trip. actually bit long delayed much speculation in washington that they were sort of keeping it out of the mainstream media because they were hoping for some breakthroughs with north korea they didn't mention north korea directly about this but this is the president also trying to look presidential let's keep in
3:53 am
mind where we are right now the government is partially shut down polls show he is losing popularity the wall is unpopular the shutdown is unpopular and he's being blamed for it this gives him a chance to come to the pentagon and project an image of straight it'll be covered like that in much of the conservative media so it's not just about the message he's sending internationally it's also about what he wants the people domestically to be talking about right now that elaine with the latest there from the pentagon patty thank you well trump also offered his condolences to the families of four american service members killed in a suicide bombing in syria claimed by eisel while he was speaking french president emanuel in the crown was addressing french soldiers and said the u.s. that showed that the battle against i saw in syria would continue it is new year's speech to the armed forces in toulouse mccrone said france would remain militarily involved in syria this year regardless of the u.s. intention to withdraw its troops from the country. well staying in the us the
3:54 am
partial government shutdown there which is now in its twenty seven states is affecting donald trump's approving ratings with research indicating a shift in disapproval among his own supporter base a new poll suggests that fifty seven percent of people would vote against the president in twenty twenty it comes as a shutdown is intensifying the impact on american people were large queues at major airports across the u.s. on wednesday due to the absence of security staff thousands of federal employees are either working without pay or simply not working at all let's talk to our white house correspondent kimberly halkett kimberly for a long time it sort of seems that trump can do no wrong when it comes to the support of his big so why is this proving that you know why is this causing a shift now. money matters and when you're not getting your money you start to get angry about it look for someone to blame and the polls do show not only do a majority of americans blame the president for the shutdown but this is
3:55 am
a roading support that up till now had appeared to be pretty solid and that is the the president's supporters that helped him win the election in twenty sixteen what i think the white house has miscalculated in all of this is the economic impact of the government shutdown of the white house is even acknowledged that visors have said you know they didn't realize that this was going to hurt so many people across the board particularly when it comes to contractors that will not be getting their back pay so this is significant because there is this fact that you know the congressional democrats say look we are not going to fund this wall the sticking point is the five point seven billion that donald trump is looking to build along the southern border he needs that money from congress and democrats say they refuse to provide it at the same time the president is not giving in on his asis insistence that he get this money so that as you point out the stalemate now is
3:56 am
twenty seventh day it doesn't appear that this is going to break and why is this a problem for the president well it's a long way away but there is another election ahead in twenty twenty and given the fact that the economy was really donald trump's kind of signature achievement the fact that this is now starting to have an impact certainly is going to make that campaigning tactic and boasting about the economy the economic success bit of a challenge. can really i guess the economy is hurting is base support but of obviously another hugely controversial issue of his presidency has been the separation of immigrant children from their parents and actually an internal watchdog said the u.s. government may have separated thousands of all migrant children from their families than previously sold what more do we know about this. yeah well the bottom line in all of this is the government is still shut down because donald trump says there's a humanitarian situation and crisis on the border essentially the flood of illegal immigration needs to stop with the construction of this border wall and that's why
3:57 am
he's dug in his heels but the flip side in all of this is with the illegal immigration and parts that are still easily crossable a lot of children have been separated from their parents this is not a new headline what is new is the fact that the numbers seem to have been downplayed or the administration simply doesn't know the true numbers at all that's what an internal watchdog report has revealed now this is certainly frustrating because we know there is a spike in the summer of two thousand and seventeen when these families were increasingly separated as a result of the administration's ciro tolerance policy in terms of criminal prosecutions if you enter the united states illegally you were going to be prosecuted you would be able to keep your kids so now what we're hearing is that the number is even greater of those families that were separated and well a federal judge did order the unification of these families it appears that didn't always happen so you're right there is a humanitarian crisis on the southern border according to the president but it seems to have been exacerbated by the poor implementation of some of the
3:58 am
president's own policies over the hurricane with releases from washington can really sink you. yes. at least nine people have been killed in a car bomb attack at a police academy in the colombian capital it's the biggest attack against a police or military facility in the city in over a decade. had any ground shattering the windows of apartments in the area around the building president even rushed back to the capital from the west of the country where he'd been attending. a lesson there and joins us live now from bogota so the son of the president has just been talking what did he say. well he first called for a minute of silence and then described this attack as a cowardly attack against. the students he said the young future policemen's
3:59 am
about are studying. cademy that were prepared for this kind of attack you also said that. he is united against what is the described as terrorism he says that colombia has defeated terrorism in the past and the thing will happen will happen in this case also the attorney general spoke of giving a number of new details starting with the alleged attacker demand i was driving there as you be that ran inside to this school and then exploded his name was to the attorney general has there been my rock as you also died in the attack and he said that the car he was driving was registered and had the last mechanical rich vision in the region this is the region of colombia near the border where it with
4:00 am
minister and i were a number of criminal groups operate among them the only rebel groups still parade. in the country they yell and the national liberation army ready game know the details of who might be behind this attack to be the person was driving the car and alexander it's the biggest attack against a police and military facility in bogota in over ten years so what impact has to be you know the atmosphere the people there how have they been reacting to this. that's correct barbara this kind of attack on the colombian stock that they have closed there this chapter in their history that these kind of attack at least these this big. was not going to happen any more there have been bombed by attacks in the last day even here in the capital. where victims of the last one.
