6:01 am
a probe into the nine hundred ninety four. video emerges appearing to show fronts knew more about the slaughter previously. if only to be. easy but it is only going to. be. a poll shows the people in britain are oblivious to yemen's. despite the u.k. being the second biggest arms supplier to the saudi led bombing campaign their. support for the democratic party with rapper kanye west among those encouraging a shift there's also. a third major party in the us political system to a nationwide survey.
6:02 am
wherever you're chiming in from welcome to moscow and to r.t. international my names you know neal good to have your company our top story the president of china has instructed the country's military to be war ready for the raising the specter of a potential conflict over trade and beyond but what's rhetoric and what is real rock as the takes a closer look so here's the thing the chinese government almost never says anything you wouldn't expect that's their thing they gave me their incredibly careful reserved at least with their tongues so when the chinese president orders his military to prepare for war serious indeed. the military to concentrate on the bonzi revenues for war the chinese are preparing for war out loud
6:03 am
how over how did we get to this well trump for one aside from the chinese at every opportunity is tariffs it's sanctions his trade war he's also being very heavy handed congress has just approved a second arms deal with taiwan in eighteen months. kind of untruthful the sales of weapons by the united states to taiwan damages china's sovereignty and security interests. beijing sees china and taiwan as two parts of a whole two chinese entities same culture at this it's the same languages with two separate governments communist capitalist the end goal is to reunite into one state there are differences of course currently preventing that and about one hundred kilometers of c. that separate the two and trump always a fan of sticking it to the chinese he's been through seeing his warships right
6:04 am
between the two chinas i see. we have expressed our concerns to the u.s. side the taiwan issue concerns china sovereignty and territorial integrity and is the most important and sensitive issue in china u.s. relations. for starters how about you express your concerns about these important and sensitive issues to someone who cares a little more because that in trump we worry about. i don't worry about things. let's be great never worrying about anything unfortunately others are there are those in china who believe that america wants to declare independence and the chinese are preparing for that eventuality militarily .
6:05 am
it's your own you know we are resolute to defeat any scheme or act of taiwan independence in any form. thing is the taiwanese don't really see a point to defending themselves taiwan which recently switched from a conscription to a volunteer army is having huge trouble recruiting even reserve troops dodging the juicy after all that's the point the devil when. the government needs to think whether it's necessary to bring conscription back national security matters but taiwan is a minor player in these confrontation if war does break out it likely be the people's republic of china slugging it out with the united states rather than taiwan and that is a war that trump really really ought to be worried about the world is really
6:06 am
across rolled facing major threats to world peace and development between china and the united states the tensions are getting more and more acute and the united states has been pushing china around he really china and imposing unilateral tyrus on the chinese exports china does not want to have a trade war with the united states china does not want to have a conflict with the united states but if the united states really wants to impose these things on to china i think the chinese people will be fully mobilized behind the chinese government and the chinese military. new research saying as humans devastating war has claimed fifty six thousand lives over the past two years some five times higher than previously thought the spine it being considered the world's worst humanitarian crisis
6:07 am
a british charity find that almost half of people in the u.k. are all aware there's a war there at all even though their countries the second biggest supplier of weapons to the country waging the bombing campaign probably boyko has more on those findings in a moment but first here's a look at just how much of a toll three years of war has taken on the yemeni people.
6:08 am
hi do you know what's happening in yemen. so much. afraid i. don't know sorry what's happening in yemen. there's a war saudi arabia. or some middle east politics i have no idea really do you know what's happening in yemen sorry do you know what's happening in yemen. it's taking the lives of thousands of civilians and caused an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and yet according to a new poll almost a home of the people in the u.k. have no i did that there is a war taking place in yemen a war in which a saudi led coalition is conducting a deadly campaign of that strikes in an attempt to drive out who the rebels hold the u.k. don't know about most things happening in fashion but if i can imagine times
6:09 am
terrible why do you think that is no enough has been said about it it depends on what the media synthesizing at a particular point in time we can through and says public knowledge and opinion so you think it's under-reported good the war in yemen isn't just another humanitarian crisis in a far flung parts of the world the saudi led campaign is. being waged partly thanks to a hefty supply of british made weapons the u.k. government happens to be the second biggest supplier of arms to the saudi kingdom after the u.s. according to the latest figures u.k. military sales to riyadh increased by two thirds in twenty seventeen from the previous year the mother of jamal khashoggi has brought the u. case closed strategic partnership with the riyadh into the spotlight now an increasing number of politicians here in the u.k. are going on the government to explain its unceasing support for the saudi led war
6:10 am
in yemen perhaps if more of the public knew about it the government would be under more pressure to. french human rights groups are calling for a probe to be reopened into the nine hundred ninety four genocide in rwanda in the stuff it's to establish whether french troops had any blame for the deaths of hundreds of people they had promised to protect in the village of business or oh i video from news website media part appears to show a senior french military officer the sky sing and all going musser there are several days before the army decided to intervene. before you were the only two you could push you to do you but you took those on the only people you know who didn't fall with the one who makes somebody a dhimmitude for the. legion aside in rwanda lasted just over three months and left nearly a million people dead while denies any culpability in the us occur rights groups
6:11 am
led by a french n.-g. o. are now saying the case was closed prematurely. lines of inquiry were not sufficiently followed up to allow investigators to determine france's military and political responsibility french military authorities were aware that from the afternoon of twenty seventh of june on words civilians were being killed the survivors open the case thirteen years ago although back in july it was scrapped due to lack of evidence and lack of convictions but survivors of the massacre claim they asked the french military for help on june twenty seventh one thousand nine hundred ninety four but the military only came three days later already after hundreds of people were killed in the massacre and the allegation now is that the french government actually knew what was going on and specifically decided not to intervene the genocide was committed mainly by the hutu government and its backers against the ethnic minority tutsi tribe and allegations of the french government
6:12 am
supports for the hutus who carried out most of the slaughter in the genocide have been rough on the french government's relations with the rwandan government for years but the french although they admit that they have made mistakes they say they have no complicity in the genocide that took place there. but we spoke with a survivor of the must secure enough church if the revelations were a shock. nor i. know the video doesn't surprise me i was very happy that
6:13 am
media part published the truth we survivors have known this for a long time it's important that the french people know what happened back in one thousand nine hundred ninety four when the military was there you know because i only know that promise to declassify the archives they didn't work out it's everything he published was already known the only things i have to add is that the french people have want to know the truth the context of the one genocide was a four year war this argument between france and rwanda has been going on since one thousand nine hundred four do the french have a mandate to differentiate have a mandate to intervene if french officers observe this and they had a mandate to intervene when they did something wrong. soldiers typically. do not do not. take action now demanded.
6:14 am
with midterm elections looming in the us a poll suggests that a majority of voters view the two party system as are dated floored many are and are seeking a third substantial option to throw their support behind us caleb up and followed. in the united states we have a first past the post electoral system where essentially voting for a third party is throwing your vote into the garbage or at least that's the montra coming from the media really people who say oh yeah you know i don't know about hillary and so i voted for jill stein i think you wasted a vote in north carolina for jill's my guess the hardest thing for an independent is to convince the voters that you're for real and that it's a viable choice and they're not wasting their vote the only thing that was kind of holding them back when you talk to them is they would say oh i don't want to waste my vote like the one of their vote to count i grabbed vote republican because i want i'm not going to waste my bill as an independent in ohio earlier this year there was a special election in which a democrat was narrowly defeated by
6:15 am
a republican twitter lit up with outrage not at the democrats for perhaps running a less than effective campaign but rather at the green party for daring to participate in the political process and win a few votes. de green party can you please wait to make you a symbolic votes and the time when our government isn't being overrun by white supremacists. you know what so i immediately think the green party tonight on russian medley. green party voters don't tell me you kiribati environment if you know your vote to make the difference between a damn winning over rap and you still choose to vote for a candidate who has no chance of winning now the u.s. state of maine tried to correct this with a new voting system essentially voters get to rank the candidates from best to worst and if no solid majority can be established by their first pick then the second votes are calculated in order to pick a winner the idea is that one can still vote against one of the major parties and
6:16 am
have their voice heard in the final results but in maine the state legislature overturned this new voting system and it was a big legal battle to get it going now there's other states eyeing something similar but there's a lot of pushback but i. i hear is that people do want to have it depended and other parties come to the freighters so they're so tired and sick of the political dysfunction because the democrats are the publicans and i think americans are really looking for a choice i think the united states skews it like that so there are only two parties and they don't want to let anybody else come into existence because. i think they both secretly know that other parties are not sort of corporatist parties but actually there are parties out there and independents out there that actually do want to advocate for the people but of course they don't want us to get in there because then we would win and they would most americans view the two party political system as outdated but the mainstream media continues to play the you're either with us or against us card so the voices of the majority of americans remain
6:17 am
silenced in the political process caleb mop and r.t. new york on the way home a must occur on a sinister meal pain americans increasingly worried over a politically motivated hate speach.
6:18 am
bamma really was very european and his approach would be very well. in brussels for example doesn't represent america is america for better or worse and i think what we're trying to do here is to let the world see. international in the us the mom accused of gunning down eleven jewish worshipers in a synagogue last weekend on a separate suspect accused of sending mail bombs have appeared in court after
6:19 am
donald trump his plan to visit the scene of the synagogue must occur backlash was sparked across u.s. media outlets the coverage focused on whether they were a politically motivated the result of a spike in hate speech and whether the president has contributed to that and it wasn't only the media against his visit. personally i would like him to stay away if he can come and not make it about himself and not make it political so and certainly. is fueling those people who are extremists and i'm very very sad for this country if this could be the start of getting along so be it and i think that would be a good thing we need to start working together well in the wake of those incidents social media sites have come under increased scrutiny in both cases the source mags how to express their hostility online the alleged pittsburgh gunman robert gregory
6:20 am
wrote a series of anti semitic posts on the social network dot com in the wake of the massacre the website which is popular with the so-called right to free speech advocates was taken down well says are. reported to have sent a series of mail bombs was active on twitter he's believed to have written death threats to politicians including former vice president joe biden on the platform we put the links between social media and hate speech up for debate. we don't want people telling us what we can and can't post and you don't also want to have the government telling companies what they can and can't put you know having said that . the companies themselves have a moral obligation i think an ethical obligation you know like like facebook or twitter to prevent. incitement on their sites but that's for them to do and it
6:21 am
ought to be something that the public pressures them to do not the government requires them to do but it should be naturally what you would do with social media platforms that these social media whether it's facebook twitter you tube they can't be held responsible for whoever posts anything on their on their websites and that was so that you know we can continue to thrive in tech expansion now of course hate speech speech is protected in america even though hate speech is horrible and abysmal that is a protected right of speech we can't arrest somebody for for an opinion that they might have no matter how egregious or ugly that opinion seems there are solutions to the problem of the power of google or the power of facebook or the power of twitter and those are to break the damn things up it's the same problem we have with newspapers and with in broadcasting you know we have these giant conglomerates that control all our media and they determine what gets in and what doesn't get in those all these organizations should be broken up shouldn't be allowed to have the
6:22 am
monopolies that they have we don't want the government coming down and telling us what we can and can't do especially when it comes to social media but i think if we put the power within social media company executives then we're just saying we don't want government to regulate it but we want these powerful business to regulate it and so we're just putting the power into one other person's hand we're looking at three or four major social media platforms and much of the speech comes down and so we have to we have to consider the fact that it would be a lot more beneficial to have twenty thirty forty social media platforms i think the main thing is to accept personal responsibility and really to grow up i mean the. in public does need to grow up and said not only accept responsibility but not engage in these things and then we can put proper public pressure well the made america's some talks a political atmosphere hillary clinton's facing a buck lush after judging that african americans quote all look alike she was correcting an interviewer who mixed up two democrat politicians do you think of
6:23 am
cory booker's and you can comment to him in your kill file i don't know anything about him saying kick them in the shins essentially start to get to that kind of political i was there a colder air cargo aircraft and sorry i know they all look alike now they don't. so many fired back out to twitter or dubbing clinton races for joking in such a way all their suggested if it had been donald trump altering the same line the outrage would have been much more vocal comes as many high profile african-americans are calling on others in the black community to ditch their support for the democratic party who have long been a pillar of the democrats' base.
6:24 am
the black said movement will spend twenty nineteen holding rallies in every major city in america that the democrats have destroyed. just admit that the people actually doing better and i have a trump presidency. this
