11:03 am
in the parliament there also being cries of death to america. move russia to such action of the u.s. president is considered a military of terrorism. the only thing you want to know the disadvantage will have painful consequences for you. and the anger is spreading across borders in lebanon there ran back to hezbollah militia has threatened to hit american forces in the region meanwhile the. iraqi parliament has voted to end the u.s. military presence in the country some 5000 u.s. troops have that officially to help defeat so-called islamic state. u.s. president donald trump has already warned baghdad that it could be hit by tough sanctions if it follows through with this threat but it's iran's promise of revenge that's focusing minds to iran has already announced it will no longer abide by the
11:04 am
2015 nuclear deal raising the stakes even further. i'm joined by a by a middle east analyst who's with a think tank center for applied research in partnership with the orient welcome to you know we saw a lot of anger in iran over the killing of a general silly money when iran talks about revenge what does that mean. we have to think it in 2 ways there will be a short term. way of revenge which is more or less like a blood revenge or a vendetta which brings american lives in the reach of iran in the middle east which puts those lives in danger and then there will be a mid and long term revenge which will actually focusing on ousting the u.s. in the region of the middle east and that is a strategy that some silly money had embodied ok talking about ousting the us from the middle east also in mani's assassination in iraq was also led to a spike of tensions between the u.s.
11:05 am
and what the implications of that. i mean it's not difficult to understand how carrying out such an operation on a sovereign and then hit and harming the sovereignty of a country like iraq will lead to these reactions it's a parliamentary decision it's not legally binding yet but it sets lose a sort of sort of dynamics that are putting again american troops in danger in iraq and can ultimately lead to the ousting of the u.s. troops from iraq led by iraq and not by iran and how important is the presence of u.s. troops in iraq well that's a completely different subject matter that needs to be discussed in fact the u.s. has been working together with iraq and to some extent with the iranians to to fight terrorist groups to fight the likes of isis to fight al qaeda and other groups and for that matter equipping iraqi. equipping the iraqi army training them
11:06 am
that has been the role of the u.s. but at the same time it has also been accused of certain abuses it has been targets of attacks by different militias that are operating in iraq so there is a real mixed picture of what u.s. presence in iraq really means and what why did region i mean john has a militia operating in several countries as you said. the this u.s. attack this targeted assassination they didn't only kill him so they money but a top iraqi commander. sorry. hon this and alongside the lebanese actor a lebanese stakeholder and an important person so they will also be revenge sought by by these groups and that is certainly something that iran cannot control and that's another level that the u.s. needs to be concerned about. that by middle east analyst thank you very much for
11:07 am
your assessment my pleasure. joined. she's on each of them spawn didn't in brussels need to invest or does a hooting in urgent a meeting today to talk about the fallout from gender silly money skilling what can we expect from this meeting that's right it will be the 1st time that nato is meeting in the new year and not under such a good circumstances but it's going to be very important to take the pulse of nato allies regarding the nato mission in iraq now that's a non-combat training operation there are several 100 personnel there who have been advising and providing assistance to the iraqi ministry of defense and to the national security apparatus and that mission was suspended after the killing of custom silly money and it's not clear what will happen with those people if they will be asked to remain in the country hoping for
11:08 am
a very temporary suspension depending on developments on the ground so this will be important to ask allies what they intend to do they will also be very interested in hearing from the united states on its intentions in the region there are there's a lot of discomfort among european allies no one was fond of iranian militias but many european governments who are also not comfortable with targeted killings like this and obviously the rep or question is there are already being seen for example with iran's announcement that it would no longer adhere to the nuclear deal so there's a lot to discuss these are not the kind of meetings where there will be a statement at the end but it is possible that we will hear from nato secretary general u.n. stolzenberg that's unclear at this point. to shoot a new headquarters in brussels thank you very much. jetting out to australia where the government has pledged the equivalent of over

django unchained. in october 27th sheen several women many of them actresses came forward to accuse weinstein of sexual harassment. the allegation sparked the global feminist me to movement which soon spread from the film industry to many other aspects of society weinstein's case continued to bring forward one new account after another he led me to his bathroom pleading that i just watch him masturbate. my heart was racing and i was very scared. i pulled my arm away finally and headed to the door he started following me and telling me that he could introduce me to bob weinstein and i could get a 3 picture deal and that he would green light my script but i had to watch him masturbate about 80 women have spoken out about harvey weinstein among them actresses angelina jolie ashley judd and gwyneth paltrow according to paltrow she

focus on history hevia on his predatory behavior and. history and that the victims and those who have come forward will not be drawn. and i really hope that so throughout history like women have come forward and like laid open the wounds of cyclist while and so they've experienced through men and throughout history we have seen that the voice and the statement of one men usually tends to weigh as heavy as those of like hundreds even thousands of women and i hope that this will change i hope that when up to 80 and people women have come forward to accuse this sexual perpetrator that their voices will be heard it's and that we will finally change how society. listens to women's voices now when this scandal 1st erupted about weinstein it kicked off the me to move into that it was 2 years
11:19 am
ago has anything really changed for women in these 2 yes so not enough but at the same time the need to movement has been recognized as one of the most impactful and social movements that we've ever seen throughout history so all the debates that we've seen they are fundamental in changing social norms and behaviors because that's a key fact. a recent study that has come forward in the u.s. that has shown that when boys show a progressive attitudes towards genda they're less likely half as likely. violence afterwards so we really need to realize that it's not only about having a vine city and it's about a system of such in the that we have in our society and it's like a pyramids where the bottom it's it's like. bad attitudes towards women and then it's like the turn to pay gap and then this we're racing to the top we see. rape and we see sex less violence and the kind of the peak of the famous i it's like in
11:20 am
germany for example every every day a man a husband or former partner tries to kill his wife or former wife and unless we recognize that may this violence men's violence and toxic masculinity is the biggest security concern in our society nothing will change so it's not just kind of celebrities in fear that you have this kind of stuff but also indeed to life in our societies christina johns thank you very much for your insights on this very important issue thank you. let's take a look at how the 1st big hollywood event of the year the golden globe awards awards event the often seen as an indication of what to expect at the oscars which on next month but it was a night of upsets with several surprise venice taking comb the evening's most coveted prizes. the red carpet lit up with smiling celebrities and flashing cameras as the stars of hollywood gathered for the golden globes award ceremony
11:21 am
it's the 1st major red carpet event of 2020. the big surprise when it was director sam mendez film 917 which won best drama beating favorites marriage story and joker. quentin tarantino's film once upon a time in hollywood won best comedy. own and in t.v. comedy quirky hit seriously bad skip the top prize while the show's triple talent writer producer and actress phoebe waller bridge to come the award for best comedy actress for what you believe in so we wanted to make me an offer maybe it will ruin my life. tom hanks won a lifetime achievement award for his decades of roles and many well loved films. but many recipients use the stage to call attention to current events and political issues like gender equality climate change and the bushfires in australia. that is
11:22 am
facing restraint to gather hopefully we can be unified and actually make some changes it's great to vote but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves and make changes in sacrifices in our own lives and hope that we can do that we don't have to take private jets to palm springs for the world sometimes we're back with these. comedian and host ricky gervais has closed the ceremony asking the audience to donate to australians affected by the fire to australia the right time. detainments correspondent scott rocks there from v.w. culture joins me now welcome scott now let's talk more about the styles using the speeches to get political how significant was that at the golden globes. well i think it's actually quite significant particularly because the globes opened with host ricky gervais's warning the audience not to use the awards as a political platform he's known for being quite cynical and snarky and he
11:23 am
deliberately told potential winners to not use as a political platform because people don't care what they think thankfully they ignore them as we just heard there are a lot of political speeches last night led more or less by the topic of climate change that was the biggest issue driven by the disaster of the bush fires in australia and australian our actor russell crowe who accept an award in abstention 7 tone saying that the bush fires were the result of climate change that people had to take action we just heard walking phoenix 2nd that and there are a number of other actors and actresses who won last night who specifically pointed to the issue of climate change but for me the most powerful speech was actually from michelle williams who used her award the platform it gave or to speak out about women's rights particularly the right to abortion which maisie's might be under threat in the u.s. at the moment so it's interesting because i think it shows that hollywood thinks in this very politically turbulent turbulent time that they have to use the platforms
11:24 am
they're given to to speak out on the issues that matter to them and not just use the awards thing like the golden globes as a chance to celebrate themselves ok and another issue is net flix taking over the big screen now always saying the film was pushed back. yeah it was interesting netflix led the nominations going to the golden globes both in t.v. and film is supposed to be their big night but they came away with just 2 wins out of $34.00 nominations there's been a big pushback against netflix from the film industry because netflix refuses to give their movies a sort of proper theatrical release and the 2 big films irishman from martin scorsese and marriage story didn't really come away with many inspired shorey just pick up one globe and but i think it's not just the pushback from the film industry but also sort of shows that movies that go out on netflix don't have the same cache as big screen or leases i don't think it has the same impact if you see
11:25 am
a film like marriage story on your couch in your pajamas on on your smartphone or on a on a computer the films that 1917 once upon a time in hollywood those are really proper big epic movies that got proper big epic theatrical releases and i think that has an impact particularly on voters at the golden globes and maybe next month at the oscars right to do governor scott rock star what was it that had to do you think. this is news and these are our top stories iran's supreme leader ayatollah combination has led the national mourning for the country's top general kassim so lemony he was killed by a u.s. drone strike in baghdad u.s. president donald trump is threatening to impose sanctions if american troops are expelled from iraq. cooler temperatures and karma winds up bringing some relief for emergency services fighting bushfires in australia but officials are warning conditions could worsen later this week the
