9:30 pm
world there is only one flag and one army so the us says i'm going to create another force to patrol and control and secure syria's border with turkey what does this mean turkey is not an enemy or syria turkey is not an enemy of to us turkey is a member of nato so it didn't make sense and i think turkey was a quite right in person having this step as a direct threat to its national security a light of recent events the us state department issued a rather measured statement the department spokeswoman said turkey should ensure that its military operations were limited in time and scope that's after the turkish president today accused allies of providing military support to the kids with washington first and foremost in his line of fire for the sliver explains. the turkish president added one has come out with guns blazing and some pretty harsh
9:31 pm
rhetoric for the trump administration lot of. america do not encroach on our borders do not provoke us we will run out of patience i told brock obama the same unfortunately i don't get any response. those who see the backing of the us will not stand the turkish nation it is our national struggle is essentially turning on and has allies he's accused the west of providing weapons and ammunition to the kurdish militia he says that aside from five thousand trucks weapons and ammunition from some two thousand planes has been provided the turkish president also saying to quote that his allies are dishonest when they do not admit to the fact that they have been supplying weapons to terrorists and here of course he's referencing the kurdish militia known as the y p g france is calling for an urgent united nations security council meeting while at the same time germany has expressed that it is extremely concerned with these developments particularly saying that the culture
9:32 pm
lated risks that could result from this confrontation between turkey and the kurds is something that might mount at the same time we are hearing from the turkish foreign minister who says that anyone who does not support or took his actions in the african region essentially is siding with the terrorists and will be dealt with accordingly so what we see is some pretty harsh rhetoric coming from and where particularly towards its allies essentially saying that it will not set that they get involved in warning them that they could potentially take further action. turkey's military action against the kurds in syria triggered protests across europe people took to the streets in a number of capitals to denounce the incursion and to demand a deescalation of the crisis will be following developments on the turkish syrian border as of.
9:33 pm
this week the two koreas agreed to march together under a single flag during the upcoming winter olympics the north will now send twenty two athletes to compete in three sports at the pian chang games international olympic committee president thomas barr praised the agreement calling it a milestone in a long journey the two koreas will also form a single team in women's hockey that will be the first time in a limb pick history and they also have a korean folksong is a common anthem officials from both countries have been meeting throughout the week to discuss peace efforts but the seeming approach more between the koreas hasn't convinced the united states president who said that he's not sure talks can lead to anything meaningful also this week the u.s. and allies of the one nine hundred fifty s. korean war gathered in canada for separate talks on the current crisis and they agreed more pressure is the only solution. or more of.
9:34 pm
the sciences to do nuclear and i think what you're collectively now is to send out a very clear message we want to intensify that pressure describe the include cutting off diplomatic ties there is north korea we spoke to human rights lawyer ericsson rocklin who says washington fears dropping out of the spotlight in the korean crisis. president. somehow believes that this pressure approach is the this is something different than has been applied before which it isn't and in reality he wants to pull back some of the thunder if you will back to washington because you have again the north and south talking i think the u.s. is a little jekyll and hyde with its policies because on one hand it wants to have a resolution wants to have de mille nuclearization wants to have peace and on the
9:35 pm
other hand pumps up this rhetoric and so the motivations relate to finances they relate to geo political factors of the u.s. power in the region if you will and they relate to trying to ice out china and russia a little bit as a player in this as was evident in vancouver. thirty people offered to have been killed in an overnight see a major hotel in the capital kabul that's according to reports that cited security officials or thirty's put the death toll at nineteen including a high ranking afghan diplomat and fourteen foreign nationals most of them employees of a local airline all of the five attackers were killed the taliban claims it was behind the assault.
9:36 pm
i think unfortunately the afghan security forces are just not. up to the standards or there's too much pressure on them and there's not much coordination between nato forces and the afghan police there are multiple threats there's the taliban there's al qaeda there's ice is there's also has misled me which is also in the government so there are a number of opponents and i think there simply isn't the right intelligence to counter these kind of attacks that because they're happening on the regular basis one day it's a civilian target one it's a military target one meets
9:37 pm
a commercial road or a hotel by today to counter terrorism in afghanistan you need regional approach and the regional approach means working with iran working with pakistan and working with russia in the central asian states at the moment the u.s. is not really doing that they have their own strategy and it's not doesn't fit in with a regional strategy. drug related crimes are becoming so bad in parts of the paris metro train drivers are reportedly refusing to stop at certain stations this is according to a union that represents the metro bus network in the french capital to show that dubious he went underground to investigate. for most parisians the metro is a staple of life with its winding tunnels and lines that stretch across the city it's often the. way to get from a to b. but down in the underground the gritty underbelly of the capital is being exposed
9:38 pm
drug related crime and violence has been a long standing issue on paris's metro but now the unions representing the train drivers say it's spiralling out of control dealers and users including those taking crack cocaine and. they doing. lighting up metro drivers is so fearful of attacks at some stations many are choosing to longer stock their survive more fos of i'm not proclaim it's very dangerous and it's terrifying if it can range from a simple punch to people using nails knives. stations like marks door and market a year are especially troubled druggy says come here for their daily fix and gangs have taken over for problem of. the problem is very dangerous for both the metro workers and for the commuters is even more dangerous they are targets of
9:39 pm
fast i've seen more than one hundred attacks take place within minutes of arriving if mark's door metro station we witnessed what looks like a drug deal the man with his back to the camera has just arrived with a bag in hand he was the platform stopping and exchanging some packages with people and then he left with his bag empty this seems to be the new normal. there are lots of drug users and i think that with everything that's happening in the match though they should be doing something most of the time the drug users are aggressive and everyone is afraid for the security of. children. twenty twenty five. lived there we've. we vers of course. have been attacked just one time because he we had in the
9:40 pm
middle of the night is smart for. playing with that problem as a precipice the problem is the security robberies can happen sometimes it's maybe aggression physical aggression sometimes to my ceasar man attack another young man. as we traveled through some of the most dangerous stations we saw metro security and police trying to crack down on the problem they succeeded in moving along but in reality all they've done is move the problem to another stop on to another day. paris. germany's social democrats have agreed on coalition talks with chancellor merkel but the road to an agreement doesn't look easy will explain all after this break.
9:41 pm
our. global blog w on the idea that dropping bombs brings police. force and you to fight the battle of the heat. if you saw the product tell you that because of the public by the most important news. about her eyes and tell me you are not cool enough to buy their product. that we all have our
9:42 pm
on walking. or as. a comeback in germany the s p d party convention has voted in favor of launching coalition talks with anger merkel's party and even though the result was what s.p.d. leader martin schultz have been campaigning for has been anything but an easy ride for him as are these peter oliver explains. this was the result that martin schultz wanted it was the result he campaigned for but it was real hard stuff as the leader of the social democrats waited for this result to come in he was visibly nervous waiting for the well what was certainly not a foregone conclusion it ended up being three hundred sixty two votes in favor with two hundred and seventy nine votes against joining the coalition with angola merkel
9:43 pm
so they are going to go forward with that but what schultz did lay out in a speech there to delegates and to a board members before the vote it was really a speech that was more pleading than it was inspirational he said there was only two options you either go into coalition with angela merkel or we have fresh elections and it was very clear which one he preferred i mean you don't you know you everyone should realize the question is coalition talks for new elections my take on this is very clear i don't think new elections are the right way for us. well it was a visibly relieved martin schulz that received those results he definitely doesn't want another election in the region for that is because of just how badly the last election went for the social democrats and there's no sign of that turning around any time soon last time around in september they lost forty seats in almost dipped below twenty percent of votes cast for representatives in the german parliament
9:44 pm
he's also going to have to of course know if he's going to form this coalition he's going to have to cross some social democratic party red lines namely on quotas for refugees that his party opposes also on social spending which his party want to see increased and that's why this whole campaign to decide whether the social democrats would go into coalition with angela merkel's conservatives that has seen a vision is so in well and truly within the social democratic ranks we saw a big campaign launched. by their youth wing saying that they didn't want to be part of government they wanted four years of opposition in order to try and get the party back to the roots where they believe it comes from so how will it look if this goes as it's been put forward on sunday evening well what it would mean is that the social democrats would no longer be the largest opposition party they would be part of the government again and that would mean that the main opposition party while that role would go to the alternative for germany the right leaning and
9:45 pm
to establishment party they would get that role it would be new ground for them and they would get everything that comes with it including the traditional role of being the head of the budget committee. which is quite interesting when you look at it because in the lead up to the previous election martin schultz and other senior members of the social democrats it said a.f.d. had no position whatsoever in the bundestag and should have no position in the book of the world in trying to hang on to power he may well put them into the main seat in german opposition. geo political analysts ryan a vote for says that the social democrats are losing much of their working class support to the right leaning a of. d.n.a. has already a greater appeal to the world cup last than that of the s.p.d. year which was the original and historic basis for the s.p.d.
9:46 pm
lives over a century now in the s.p.d. for example a lot of these very strongly pouring in into germany more refugees they house more in the mind of their rights as refugees than their workers' rights that's at least what eight after portrays the s.p.d. like and what all sort of to perceive. and capitalize on this white on this blank space left by the s.p.d. yet. four people have filed a lawsuit against the city of berkeley in california and this university the injuries they claim they received during riots on the campus there last year the violence erupted over a speech that was to be given at the university by a prominent conservative.
9:47 pm
and we talked to katrina re the the who is taking legal steps again is berkeley university. but when the attack started and specially after i was pepper sprayed i was completely incapacitated there was nothing i could do to defend myself so i had no choice but to turn around and just face the barricade i was worried about what
9:48 pm
was happening to my husband it turned out he was just a few feet away from me being beaten worse than any of us he was being unconscious the efforts by the police both the city and the campus police were clearly inadequate given what happened then the injuries that were sustained rather i saw personally it was police initially standing outside of the building that they later locked us out of i thought in their knowledge of the way and by the time the attack actually started they were nowhere to be seen they had locked themselves inside the building and wouldn't give us any aid at all university of california berkeley has declined to comment the city itself previously filed court motion seeking to dismiss a similar case the lawyer representing the victim says they want to send a message to campus stuff and police to do a better job. the injuries caused to our clients two of which were beaten unconscious and still suffer from psychological disorders post-traumatic disorders
9:49 pm
so they are seeking money damages to compensate them for that but the main goal of this case is to send a message to campus police and samples universities that they they have to do their job you know i liken what happened here the deliberate effort to not intervene and to not do anything to fire a man from watching a building on fire with their with their opposes water pouring out of them but they're too afraid to go into the building because they might get hurt it's the goal of law enforcement it's the role of law enforcement i should say to serve and protect the public and they did not do that. relations between moscow and washington have been somewhat frosty of late but someone really feeling the cold has been the u.s. ambassador to russia jon huntsman. thank you very much. that was the ever the one with some of these embassy colleagues months the

9:51 pm
the president of the world bank so. i'm going to write it seriously he sent us an e-mail in order to overthrow a regime it does take popular discontent and popular mobilization but it also requires actors with in the leadership of the regime who feel that the regime is no longer serving the national interest you need people in the military or the bureaucracy for both who are willing to see the regime change otherwise they would be able to put down a popular revolt but did not have support at higher level. everybody i'm stephen both task hollywood guy you know suspects very proud american first of all i'm just. george washington and honored to say this is my body mass famous financial guru where he's a little bit different. with all the drama happening in our country and

9:55 pm
its debt out of control could have even caused a domino effect on the whole european economy not only dose of the pigs. what was going on in europe in contrast to the free market invisible hand. which improves the lives of people the governments invisible foot. trampled on people's hopes and destroys their jury. is. the word spread and austerity had entered into everyday speech but no one knew more times when since the economic crisis what entails the tickets. spain's choice the general strike that's stretching throughout europe deployment still european politicians was shared with the crisis would be resolved soon of applying effective
9:56 pm
economic recipes and structural reforms a. little. after four years of austerity the economic conditions of the pigs are even worse but the european press continues to believe that corruption and indolence are the sources of our problems and at this point we deserve this crisis. pushed for it than. that it would help our going in that on a cold front and their world. and. then that are bullied see you have a natural munich local knowledge of google any outpost in austin. and a lot of quizzical as a kid. in the. local machine. that it sounds a bit keen enough to buy a z.
9:57 pm
engine. chip if you. live in that she for all countries of the week which the weaker economies are the pews to the not working hard being spendthrift and so on that's mostly complete nonsense so for example greeks work on average more hours per week than germans do. in one thousand nine hundred two the my strict treaty was signed in the european union was formally born. but let's take a break because this story also talks about. that in that very same year found in the social cooperatives. me of which she is now president in twenty four years cloudy in new colleagues and given back dignity. to those who had just been released from mental hospitals schools prisons or simply from their homes they left with the family a few to count on full of crazy people they drove around to

a small town north of from under the eyes of the outraged locals and they got to change the face of their city a co-operative has dealt with more than five hundred people with disabilities in more than five times and people to convince the justices to turn from population of mind to return today the likely brisk instead it would be shut down triggering a real social bump no one. in e.p.a. to meet one hundred. percent say. with macro economics you can understand the limits in then with microeconomic you understand everything that happens inside of those limits so macro economic might put you in this room and then micro would be everything that happens inside the room total. bought ticket at angel money in the stuff that you will send it to someone else about to step down. if you send one hundred dogs into the room
9:59 pm
to get some bones there's only ninety five pounds now you've got a macro problem a structural problem five of those dogs that are going to get anybody. cheating on them play the dish and the bit now the micro calmness then the psychologist will take those five guys out and they'll examine over then they'll say ok they need more training we need structural reforms they need exercise they'll exercise them in training and teach you how to fight hard and chase phones and then they run the experiment again they send those guard to get and sure enough the next time those dogs get in on. me in addition. to whatever. management said. but they forget that there's going to be just five other dogs that don't get phones because there's a macro prop. it's good to have better dogs. but if the problem is they're short by short nothing the micro can do about.
10:00 pm
it is it really possible that there is such a between the upper floors of economic power and the small everyday problems is it true that we are one hundred dogs in a room with only ninety five bones and who decides when the bones must be ninety five or one hundred. eighty days keep. your eye.
