a run for nuclear program now more likely to be resumed president strengthen the hardliners in iran and iran may go back to pursuit of highly enriched uranium and ultimately a nuclear weapon and now we're off to an arm church in the most volatile part of the world. well on tuesday donald trump officially announced washington was dumping the iran nuclear deal struck by the obama administration from first long been describing the agreement as one of the worst deals ever made america says it didn't cover iran's ballistic missile program nor its perceived malign activities in the region so washington is putting the screws on companies doing business with iran is daniel bushell reports. so sanctions back iran probably doesn't care much it's had them in one shape or other for for decades washington shooting itself in the food surely not. the youth in way over ten billion
8:06 am
euro of stuff to iran last year relationship in full bloom corporate giants now licking wounds include the biggest hitters on the continent from volkswagen to british airways air bus may be worst hit it signed a nineteen billion dollars deal with tehran just two years ago three billion more with as a man airlines why should europe care if trump quits the iran deal because he can make it your problem to write off the trumps announcement on his very first day on the job new u.s. ambassador to burley and tweeted the following all minutes threat as donald trump said u.s. sanctions would target critical sectors of iran's economy german companies doing business in iran should wind down operations immediately issuing national threats via twitter seems trump picks people in his own image but this time he's crossed a diplomatic red line my advice after a long ambassadorial career explain your country's policies and lobby the host
8:07 am
country but never tell the host country what to do if you want to stay out of trouble germans are eager to listen but they will resent instructions welcome to our country sir i'm looking forward to a good cooperation by the way this excludes threatening german companies for a policy announced by your president ignoring core security interests of europe here we have the entire nature of the transatlantic alliance of the order for the sham that it is because this is not and i and between equal partners and friends successive european governments have actually claimed it is indeed their relationship between i hate you morning behave mouth washington and its utopian satellites and sure this has all kinds of ramifications certainly more than economic ramifications for those companies so long as it helps the u.s. economy right trumps the businessman after all he must know how to oil the wheels

of trade apparently not. gas prices of topped the psychological benchmark of two dollars eighty a gallon almost a painful fifty cents up in just a year and u.s. employers are hurting too just weeks after trump's election boeing toasted a seventeen billion dollars deal for eighty u.s. built jetliners to iran but when bragged about it in line with trump's favorite mantra i will take jobs back. to jobs or jobs good jobs and even great jobs jobs jobs to disagree with will support tens of thousands of u.s. jobs directly and nearly one hundred thousand u.s. jobs in the u.s. every space value stream for the food course of deliveries jobs jobs jobs no more future deals go on existing contracts scrapped u.s.
8:09 am
workers on your bike so who take their place iran's already struck billion dollar deals with russian playmaker. china's all over iran like a rash huge energy deals you roll roads and in cold hard cash iran has a strategy. of alliance with the russians and the chinese if. europeans leave if. american companies leave what happens is that iran is going to substitute the u.s. with russia and china. ok let's discuss this further now with political analyst side the staffer who joins us good afternoon she sighed thanks for your time this afternoon firstly there's a lot of concern in europe at the moment about america pulling out of this deal let's start by listening to what the president french president had to say. elaine
8:10 am
it is never good for us to break the laws that we ourselves helped to create why because how can you convince powers that occasionally use force are violent that don't respect international law to follow our example when we don't even follow that example i sells in essence he saying you know we're not we're not abiding by our own own set of rules here how can we expect iran to do the same or what's your assessment of what he said. hello andrew and you know as a matter of fact the perception here in tehran is that the europeans are trying to play the good cop you know after the u.s. withdrawal a major part of the can stations that was to receive on the deal is gone right now although the united states never abided by its commitments and they remain only over the paper that's the sanctions were removed mainly over the paper but still
8:11 am
that porky's gone right now and the europeans are offering iran with a meager part of the concessions that he was to receive that's exactly why iranians are so adamant to you know future of this deal and they don't want to continue with this deal mostly you know since it started this these talks started under president rouhani the iranians voted to bring him into office in a bit to start trying problems that the old man with the west because they imagine that the united states is willing to resolve problems through talks but the critics of the deal stated that the united states is only willing to contain iran's power one by one each component of the nuclear industry missile industry its regional clout and now their stance has been proved and iranian community has educated actually now it's very difficult to see any future for this deal as even people are
8:12 am
not willing to see a continuation of this deal with less their you know concessions unless the three conditions of iran's of iran are met president trump said he wants to strike a need to deal with iran that one that could be better than the previous one for terror on the main g. believe that how likely is it for that to happen. well i believe that the americans in israel is they are escalating tensions in order to give this pulse to the whole war that they are going to start war against iran unless iran surrenders you know what they want. no more falls under the species of the government now what they want is more with regard to iran's missile program its regional clout that means iran's military forces are responsible for these two areas and they do not act like you know the politicians and the
8:13 am
government they have evolved different strategy a very clear cut the strategy so what the israelis and the united states mean mean they want iran's surrender under the present atmosphere prevailing over that uranium environment there is unity that iran should stand up to the west iran even for the future of this deal with the europeans iran once you know objective guarantees from the europeans that you know ensure its continued marriott in the future first second they want the europeans to stop asking for more concessions from iran and number three they want meaningful modifications in their undertakings under the deal so these two scenarios their pursuit by the way us and iran are they are you know opposing each other i don't see any chance for you know any further
8:14 am
deal like this to go and to happen obviously a lot of anger in around at the moment but there have been images to. sayit iranian politicians burning the american flag in parliament do you think that helps iran's image when that happens does it not play into the hands of people who say look iran is an aggressive state. well the quality of the connection is poor so i couldn't decipher and understand what your question was basically the politicians at the parliament remember one thing very important when the view was to go into effect the deal was presented to the parliament they ratified it in less than half an hour many people were angry to see that they wanted more more this same county members almost the same they just set fire to the u.s. flag and to be just if your way two days ago that means the climate here in tehran
8:15 am
has changed completely donald trump has shown that you ring in community the reality of the united states naked and that's exactly what the critics were saying from the beginning i believe what the israelis and americans are trying to do to provoke iran to provide a response to the to the israeli farming your opinion troops and syrian troops and their allies in syria that would have very dire reach precautions for united states they are trying to intimidate iran to say they were if you don't want war you need to stay on their case side on that point we're going to have to wrap it up in our history or actually time and they are standing firm we really appreciate your time today that was political an aside my staff. now and he is rightly demonstrations along the gaza border into their last friday
8:16 am
as part of the so-called great march of return over the last six weeks say not nearly fifty palestinians killed and thousands more injured but i think now we can cross live to local correspondent. at the border today for us good afternoon to you then just tell us then what's the situation there at the moment. ok so i'm two hundred meters away from the fence that separates. gaza strip and israel and we see that today there is something different because it's the last friday and the palestinians are getting ready for the fourteenth and the fifteenth where they're saying that they are going to be a days of rage and they're going to be a lot of surprises not only for the israelis but full of the world and the palestinian protesters refuse to tell us what they're planning for the fourteenth and the fifteenth but as you see suddenly the palestinian protesters started to march this way and to go to this hill and there's very close to the bed the
8:17 am
israelis and the soldiers today there are more is soldiers with new watch towers and. what type of very obvious that is that tensions are escalating and the palestinian protesters are trying to do something but we still don't know what's going to happen because they this friday they didn't fire any tires they were also only flying. kites and causing burning on the other side i think in that next hours protesters are going to do something big because they're trying we talk to them and they said that they won't go home today unless they cut the fence and we saw some of the tools they will use to cut the funds that paramedics and journalists are also at here ready to cover everything and so far there have been a. tireless tinian palestinian journalist who was injured in his. leg and with tear gas canisters and where there were so another child who was also injured with his
8:18 am
leg we can also hear live ammunition that israeli soldiers are firing live ammunition on up out kite up up tight with the palestinian flag we ought we always see that the israeli soldiers just right beside the. new watchtower that has been built this week. ok here in. we can see the dramatic scenes that you were talking about with live pictures to you. only. ok let's think that our reporting our local journalists along the border guards the border with israel where she mentioned palestinians have recently started resorting to a new form of violent protest attaching fire bombs to kites and flying them over the border fence into israeli held territory. and the violence is likely to worsen too in the coming days to be heard because on monday
8:19 am
the u.s. is officially moving its embassy in israel from tel aviv to jerusalem when the move was first announced last year it sparked deadly protests in palestine and the u.n. is now also warning about a potential escalation. i'm particularly worried about today in the coming days with the u.s. embassy move through jerusalem on monday and with the planned protests and goes on take this opportunity again to call in israel to be very careful and calibrated to the code uses force in addressing the protesters and goes on but also call on come us unbelievers of the protests in gaza to prevent friction to prevent situations of which provoke issues can happen. without say we're going to take a quick break we'll have more news to.
8:20 am
most people think just stand out in this is this you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest raid in truth to stand the news business you just need to ask the right questions and demand the right answer. questions no. one else seems wrong. well just don't call. me. yet to say proud this day comes to educate and it gains from it because betrayal.
8:21 am
when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. hello again our man he was violently escorted out of a senate hearing at that haint on wednesday has been released. facility seventy nine year old cia veteran here a mcgovern showed bruises he blamed on security he was one of the protesters who interrupted the session denouncing the controversial cia chief nominee gina hospital. was going to take on the director resisting much of the many respects and. never stop resisting part of his game as it is stop hurting me and i don't judge the state. i was in shock.
8:22 am
you know. this may be hard to believe but i took the chairman at his word he said if you have something to say and he was sort of so that diffident about it you know if you have something to say will say it. briefly and then leave well i said it but my god that's when you asked me what happened i remember that well you know is this have been me. now the u.s. democrats and losing support ahead of november's midterm steps according to a recent poll corresponding kalam open office some analysis watchdogs of american politics of observed that the democrats are losing their supposed upper hand when it comes to the upcoming congressional midterm elections now there are many different factors that play into this but one that stands out is that trump has doubled down on good old fashioned american warmongering he's appointed notorious war hawks pompei oh and bolton he's ripped up the iran deal and he's even unleashed a torrent of missiles against the syrian arab republic more recently he's appointed
8:23 am
gina has a.k.a. bloody gina to be the head of the cia she was allegedly involved in the agency's torture program of the past now we get a lot of democrats speaking up against gina haskell but as long as she gets two of them to go along in her favor she's clear to be confirmed already we've got joe manchin from west virginia democratic senator speaking in her favor. i have found gina has to be a person of great character she has worked in some of the most dangerous corners of the world and i have the utmost respect for the sacrifices she has made for our country i look forward to working with gina hospital now joe manchin is from west virginia that's a state full of conservative minded appellations while opposing war and torture might when the democrats friends up in new england in red states among conservative minded americans these hardline pentagon policies are crowd pleasers not scandals now remember the resistance the folks protesting donald trump at every turn and
8:24 am
taking the leadership from hillary clinton well those folks agree with donald trump on very few things but among them is bombing syria i really believe that we should have and still should. take out his airfields and prevent him from being able to use them to bomb innocent people and proxy sharon gas. even. c.n.n. the network down in trump is accused of fake news is with him when he's on the warpath remember when missiles were flying into syria voices that usually oppose donald trump simply on donald trump ordered a missile strike against the assad regime in syria i support president trumps use of american military power this week they even talked up the military equipment we are refueling the saudi bombers that are dropping the bombs it is said that thousands of civilians have died in yemen because of this you know there's a lot of jobs at stake certainly if a lot of these defense contractors stop selling warplanes other sophisticated
8:25 am
equipment to saudi arabia they're going to there's going to be a significant loss of jobs revenue here in the united states when the media and politicians are telling americans that war is good for business don't be too surprised if you see us public support for war let's recall how the media pushed the americans to support the invasion of iraq and most of them went along with it we expect every american to support our military and if they can't do that to shut up our duty as loyal americans to shut off once the fighting begins from campaign with cancer war talking points but the polls show that is hawkish turn hasn't really hurt him among the public there seems to be a lot of americans who are tired of war but there's a pretty solid core of folks who believe the cruise missiles keep them safe and that america first should refer to military strength and our t. new york. meanwhile are taking on the opioid epidemic has become one of the main goals of the current u.s.
8:26 am
administration following a spike in i've been a stats in recent days and part of the plan is to make it harder for doctors to prescribe. crisis in the us has reached the point where the drug enforcement administration itself says it should be doing a better job the united states continues to be affected by a national opioid epidemic which has been spurred in part by the rise of opioid prescribing and misuse the da can and must do better let's quickly break it down in a span of seventeen years two hundred thousand people have died as a result of overdose deaths involving opioids increase for times from ninety nine to twenty sixteen and every day more than six hundred fifty thousand opioid prescriptions are issued in the u.s. . in the d.d.a. plains doctors indiscriminate prescribing can endanger patients lives doctors take
8:27 am
an oath to do no harm and provide the best care for their patients first do no harm this is the basic principle to practice medicine but is it fair to pin the blame on doctors when it's the d e a itself that registers individuals and companies to sell controlled substances and guess what their funding is depended on it ga must set face at a level that ensures the recovery of the full costs of operating the various aspects of the diversion control program. in two thousand and seventeen the da claimed that it issued one point seven million licenses for around five hundred thousand more since two thousand and eight a pharmacist who prescribe drugs to almost all of his clients is now serving jail time for ground zero is west virginia where doctors write hundred and thirty eight prescriptions for every one hundred people did you write three hundred twenty five prescriptions the first week of january for more than nineteen thousand oxy code on
8:28 am
pills. possibly you don't know how many prescriptions you wrote i don't i don't and they may well be he's still behind bars but his license was never revoked it just expired well a da report showed that criminals are often allowed to continue practicing medicine even after doing their time in one instance a doctor who was selling prescriptions for controlled substances to undercover police with sentenced to five years supervised probation but never lost his license . but why is it that licenses are rarely revoked while the acting head of the d.a. believes the system is to blame we have done a lot of civil fines but when you look at major businesses civil fines seem to have little impact and i think that's part of the frustration i think the key to it is as we're states either don't have the ability to connect with each other or the system that actually aren't being used as is highly problematic and the way the system works means we're only seeing the tiniest fraction of licenses with both for
8:29 am
talking to your zero point zero one four percent out of one point seven million licenses so one of the things that we are now recommending is that before the v.a. grants a license to a physician there should be required education that that physician should have in order to get the da license in the first place what would be much more important is training physicians in how to safely prescribe opioids in the first place and once they have prescribed opioids how to monitor patients so that they can see whether or not that patient is becoming addicted misusing the opioid or diverting it to other sources. sonera comma post never says coming up two or three thirty pm here in moscow more news from us at the top of the next hour.
8:30 am
deep seated foresees. milton's i would say i'm not american but americans helped out really. world war two cures the depression cars the united states is concerned prosperity of course in store. for the for us the whole world what it what and. historical rewrite ever since world war two to foment the cold war against russia against communism and. justice mishmosh. it was so you tell me that she also lost a swath of it so you could call her go. well i think world war two has been distorted credibly by the bang.
