2:04 pm
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 taiwan to declare independence and the chinese are preparing for that eventuality militarily. as 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 conscription to
2:05 pm
a volunteer army is having huge trouble recruiting even reserve troops dodging the juicy after all that's the point never when the government needs to think whether it's necessary to bring conscription back in the national security matters but taiwan is a minor player in these confrontation if war does break out at 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 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 round him really china and imposing unilateral

tyrus on the chinese exports china does not want to have a trade war with the united states and china does not want to have armed conflict with the united states but if the united states really wants to impose these things onto china i think the chinese people will be fully mobilized behind the chinese government and the chinese military. u.s. allies from around the globe rounding on washington as a trade dispute over metal tyrus reaches the world trade organization countries like mexico canada and e.u. members are pushing the global body to review the levees saying they're concerned by the impact of washington's behavior. this collective resort's a dispute settlement reflects the serious concern of the w t o membership of the united states actions norway is worried that the united states would offer a purported justification that is so evidently divorced from real world security concerns. raised import charges by ten percent a law

2:08 pm
historical relationships and trump is basically blowing them apart and the world is creating a new order where the u.s. is not the central figure and i think you know these so small but powerful moves by the. and other international communities is a clear sign that it's moving shifting away from the u.s. as the primary axis of power. says yemen's devastating war has come to fifty six thousand lives of the past two years some five times higher than previously thought despite it being considered the world's worst humanitarian crisis persist charities found that almost half of people in the u.k. run away as a war at all even though that country is the second biggest supplier of weapons to the country waging the bombing campaign 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.

2:10 pm
lives of thousands of civilians and caused an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and yet according to a new poll almost half of the people in the u.k. have no idea that there is a war taking place in yemen a war in which a saudi led coalition is conducting a deadly campaign of airstrikes in an attempt to drive out who the rebels hope you don't know about most food and stuff i mean you know. i can imagine shows terrible why do you think that is not enough is being said about it depends what the media synthesizing at a particular point in time with your troops is public knowledge and opinion so you think it's under-reported the war in yemen isn't just another humanitarian crisis in a far flung part of the world the saudi led campaign is being waged partly thanks to a hefty supply of british made weapons the u.k.

2:12 pm
a senior french military officer discussing an ongoing massacre several days before the army decided to intervene. before you were really only two you could cut your deal but you could usually only query giddyup for. the mix homebody or dhimmitude boucher or shield. the genocide in rwanda lasted just over three months and left nearly a million people died while paris denies any culpability in the massacre rights groups led by a french n.g.o.s are 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
2:13 pm
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 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.
2:14 pm
i spoke with a survivor of the massacre and i asked her if the revelations that were a shock no have to do with no video doesn't surprise me i was very happy that media part published the truth we survivors have known this for a long time it's important that the french. people knew what happened back in one thousand nine hundred ninety four when the military was there but i only know that promise to declassify the archives they didn't work out which everything he published was already known the only thing i have to add is that the french people have to know the truth the context of the one genocide was a poor year war this argument between france and rwanda has been going on since one

a whole is on alert due to the storms the town of genoa was badly hit after its reinforced walls collapsed dozens of yachts were left battered on the seafront roads while others subtle a civil protection unit has been mobilized to help locals and to monitor high risk areas around the clock. on the way how a massacre and a sinister mail bomb campaign has got americans increasingly worried of a politically motivated hate speech stay with us. barack obama really was very european in his approach he would be very well suited . and 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 here.
2:17 pm
join me every thursday i'll be all excited i'm sure and i'll be speaking to us a little the politics. i'm show business i'll see you that. would. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go to the press this is what before three in the morning can't be good. interesting always in the water. welcome back to the program in the u.s. the man accused of gunning down in lebanon jewish worship is in
2:18 pm
a synagogue last weekend and a separate suspect accused of sending mail bombs have appeared in court often donald trump announced his plan to visit the scene of the synagogue massacre a backlash was spotted across u.s. media outlets the coverage focused on whether the crimes were politically motivated and the result of a spying can hate speech and whether the president has consciously to to that and it wasn't only the media against his visit. personally i would like him to stay away if he could and not make it about himself. and not make it political so and certainly why not he is fueling those people who are extremists and i'm very very sad that this country if this could be the start of getting along than so be it and i think that would be a good thing we need to start working together in the wake of those incidents social media sites have come under increased scrutiny in both cases the suspects had expressed their hostility online an alleged gunman opens crankily file is ready
2:19 pm
to series of on systematic posts on the social network gap dot com in the wake of the massacre the website which is popular with the so-called right and free speech advocates was taken down and sees. the man reported to have sent a series of mail bombs was active on twitter he's believed to have written death threats to politicians including form of vice president joe biden on the platform we put the links between social media and hate speech 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 hear but 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 in their sites but that's for them to do and it
2:20 pm
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 who ever post anything on their on their websites and that was so that you know we could continue to thrive in tech expansion now of course hate speech speech is protected in america even though hate speech is horrible and abysmal it is a protected right of speech we can't arrest somebody for for an opinion that they might have no matter how it's. regis or or ugly that opinion seems there are solutions to the problem of the power of google or the power of the power of twitter and those are brick the damn things up it's the same problem we have with newspapers and with. broadcasting you know we have these giant conglomerates that control our media and lead determine what gets in and what doesn't get in the all these organizations should be broken up shouldn't be allowed to have the monopoly
2:21 pm
so 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 of the persons 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 american public does need to grow up and only accept responsibility but not engage in these things and then we can put proper public pressure. and with america's someone talks in the political atmosphere hillary clinton's facing a backlash to jibing that african-americans all look alike she was correcting an interviewer who mixed up two democrat politicians you think of cory booker's and
2:22 pm
you can comment to him in your kill file i don't know what do you think about him saying kick them in the shins essentially start to get to that kind of political i was eric holder eric holder yeah sorry i know they all look alike no they don't. many find back clinton on twitter dumping a racist for the joke someone left a bit confused as to why there was no reaction to clinton's words others suggested if it had been donald trump in the same line the outrage would have been much more vocal. it comes as many high profile african-americans are calling all of this in the black community to ditch their support for the democratic party who have long been a pillar of the democrats' base. the
