nine am here in the russian capital you live with us on our tour with me to say it's good to have you with us this morning. japan's ownership of an entire. china sea may be up for review not by tokyo but by beijing the ark in our island chain urges home to sprawling u.s. military bases and tens of thousands of american troops now the people's daily considered a mouthpiece of china's communist party all but laid claim to the archipelago in an article written by academics japan i'll quickly hit back denouncing the paper as a political tool and declaring its ownership of arcane now beyond doubt if the latest are tauriel dispute marring relations between the two asian powers birth out so locked into a contest over another island chain james colbert to use the editor of a japan a base news website says china's am is

a two pressure japan making concessions elsewhere. it is at the very least an interesting new development in the territorial dispute and obviously meant to at least increase pressure on japan over the the disputed senkaku islands which is another part of this territorial dispute that's going on but in terms of okinawa itself it's been within the japanese sphere of influence for at least the last four hundred years now but of course this brings up the fundamental issue of all of this which is china is trying to argue that it has historical claims over the okinawa islands japan has these formal claims that it's set up in a major era back in the eighteenth seventy's but it's this group completely excluded from this is the fact that of course there is an ethnic indigenous population in okinawa who are the ones who are completely forgotten in all of this and are being used as pawns as they have had to suffer through basically imperial regime after imperial regime and now it's basically a site for u.s. military bases and japan i think is going to be more or less

1:04 am
a way of kind of challenging that asia pivot but they're basically saying washington is don't push us don't come into our waters i do think as well there is an expert to kind of drive a wedge to a certain extent between japan and the united states only given its state certainly wants a war with china which japanese are being a bit more aggressive on this visit to trainees are pushing the envelope just a little bit to see if the u.s. will back off a little bit on its support of japan so far that hasn't happened but that's a possibility in the future. a day of a novelist pride to end a day of remembrance as mocking the sixty eighth anniversary all of the defeats of nazi germany. my.

first stop at a recent trip to israel was to an iron dome battery where he told soldiers they're doing an amazing job because so much money has been spent on this defense missile system that now needs to be marketed and sold otherwise how do you justify something that has already cost the american taxpayer millions of dollars but for all its hype behind dome which is designed to intercept and destroy short range rockets aimed at populated areas is not foolproof i have a lot of question marks questions that include the system's effectiveness weapons experts lee united states and even in israel say the i.d.f. has y. be overstated its intercept success rate by a factor of ten more you can see very clearly that the project like this it's impossible to get a warhead work. so you've. destroyed eighty four percent of the

incoming orchids the celebrated technological wonder exploded onto the international stage after last year's israel gaza war but the math did not add up it proved disproportionately expensive as a defense against crude homemade palestinian rockets and mass. militants there are assembling these rockets which cost about one hundred dollars to make. which are very little more than than a pipe with an explosive to propel it forward. and they aren't going rockets. actually cost fifty thousand dollars. each bucket so shooting rockets to intercept one. of the finance makeshift bombs a makeshift rockets would cost a thousand times more than the cost of the rocket that is being intercepted but the i.d.f. has good reason to mislead the world about its effectiveness not only to taxpayers want to know the money is being well spent but enemies need to be deterred

especially gaza militants firing at israel's southern border city of stuart small bit wary. even more they developed. the defense of the war both was. the only way the can no defense is they were given the history of missile defense deception and the strong israeli incentive to deceive the people who pay for the system should be asking hard questions about how well it really works policy r.t. . there's more news on our website a renowned the physicist stephen hawking is causing a big bag over his wi fi is all to travel to israel cameras university insists he's not going because of health reasons i don't see it as a snub that the details online. and trained with a fifty field tank is a derailed in southern russia with characters exploding into pliable forcing thousands of people to evacuate the area r.t.

worth three sometimes even more people now it means the other one half way people climb from one ask a vader to be other it all looks rather dangerous but look at the people they seem quite pleased with themselves anyway when this video first appeared on the internet it went viral with so many commons and very few people were actually concerned about the fate of the passengers some even labeled this video as another example of how russians can be resilient and resourceful well it's really hard to argue with that watching this footage. some more of today's world headlines for you now further clashes have erupted between police and students marching for free education in chile's capital security forces use what they can and to hold back the right isn't something yeah good tens of thousands of students have to posit nationwide demonstrations as part of an ongoing movement for education reform that

1:21 am
influence in the arena of u.s. presidential politics the state is currently garnering headlines for its prisons specifically the medieval type punishment being imposed on countless citizens who are drowning in debt according to a report released by the a.c.l.u. of ohio thousands of citizens are being locked behind bars because they are too poor to pay their debt and we saw some really troubling numbers one case that we looked at out of mansfield ohio there was a gentleman and his crime against the community was he let his dog walk in his mobile home park without a leash he was fined thirty dollars and he ended up being found in contempt of court and was sent to jail for not paying for a thirty dollars fifty five year old jackdaw lee was incarcerated three times for failing to pay nine hundred dollars in fines every ninety days you had a jail date. and if you weren't working well you're going to jail debt prisons

violate the u.s. and ohio constitutions according to the a.c.l.u. most of the defendants weren't given hearings before being jailed for outstanding fines if the court had taken any time to ask whether or not they couldn't afford to pay that they would see that these were people who just simply cannot pay they were individuals who are homeless many who haven't worked for months if not years people who are disabled. people who are taking care of disabled family members these are people who are working and just don't feel like spending the money these are people who literally have no money people like dante stiles who is unemployed and says he often has to choose between feeding his two children or paying his fines. back and forth back and forth in court back before a conflict here fifteen days here and while the cash strapped citizens are incarcerated in gutters prisons. there fines keep growing like credit card interest

1:24 am
coming up after the break east meets west in a war time victory technologies say with. you know i've been asked a few times if i believe in conspiracy theories which is kind of an odd question i mean just in general believe in conspiracy theories like all of them even the ones that contradict each other i mean j.f.k. could have been killed by the mob the cia the k.g.b. and various secret societies at the same time or could he have been know what you just declare themselves official conspiracy theories that's silly obviously it isn't good just go around fishing for evil plots to explain every situation the mainstream media sure does lie a lot but i think they're telling the truth about that whole sky being blue thing
1:25 am
but on the other hand if you never question what the glowing box in your house tells you that just makes you a sucker the kind of sucker who bought that there were magical mysterious invisible weapons of mass destruction in iraq and you know what in all honesty there's actually been real evil conspiracies that have been exposed like the tuskegee experiment and the fascist coup attempt against president roosevelt in one nine hundred thirty s. over all people think it's pearcey theories are matter of belief but actually they're completely a matter of facts and there's a lot of good evidence to support a conspiracy and good arguments that maybe you should consider it but if someone tells you the president is actually a rip tell him from the cosmos yeah you might want to just stay away from that one but that's just my opinion.
