hottest in the world as there were at the time of the nine eleven attacks at this point there's two hundred thirty thousand militants spread across seventeen different countries while the united states now allied governments have weakened some groups many of the underlying causes of terrorism have not been adequately addressed sunni arab disenfranchisement has been among the most important causes of instability and an important source of recruits but how can this be by twenty nineteen the usa will have spent five point nine trillion dollars on counterterrorism operations and activities and at this point researchers are saying that the us military brass lacks a coherent roadmap there is no strategy to end the wars other than more of the same in the hope that one day iraqi and afghan security forces will be able to fend for themselves now the costs are not simply financial but also come in terms of human lives the latest study indicates that roughly half a million people have died as
a result of america's post nine eleven wars now that only includes iraq pakistan and afghanistan with the authors of the study saying that with other countries including the numbers would be much higher. now there's no sign that america's drones missiles and tax dollars will stop rolling anytime soon your it is to have sufficient forces engaged in sufficient political engagement sufficient economic resources to make sure that we're putting pressure in disrupting those networks the current administration just like the obama administration believes that it does not need any additional authorization to use force against al qaida the taliban or isis we're not leaving based on a timetable terrorism is something that all civilized people oppose working to eradicate it is certainly an honorable goal however with such a dismal results at such a high human cost perhaps the overall strategy of the war on terror should be

here is our paris correspondent charlotte to ski. much corn and trump's friendship is down in the dumps right now but it seems that the fission between them has spread to a much wider now it seems that france is even turning its back on us tech giant google so what do you do if you want something on the internet here you couldn't it it'll catch on i'm sure we have to set an example security and digital sovereignty are at stake here which is not merely an issue for geeks only quantz is partly french and so far it's been free of major data breach scandals and it claims that it doesn't track uses which is perhaps one of the worries of government officials given that u.s. intelligence can access data on companies clouds south where they're located both the french national assembly and the french army ministry and now setting court as the default. saying to digital colonization. few who you know
if we don't regulate the internet we risk up setting the fundamentals of democracy if we don't regulate companies relationships to data and the rights of our citizens have to their own data that access and sharing what is the point of a democratically elected government is this another major step away from america and towards a european defense force if so it won't be music to is in washington. already face the wrath of trump after suggesting that europe needed an army to defend itself from countries including the good ole us of a what came next was a twitter rant from trump telling the french that they would be speaking german if not for america's help as the will to moves increasingly towards digital warfare front is looking to make sure it slips out from under. the u.s.
is net the french shown that they are very concerned about data privacy issues but also about the domination of u.s. technology giants it will be interesting to see how this is followed in other countries and by other moves in france do the french equally discriminate against global cloud service providers in the way that they're discriminating here against a global search engine a lot of this is going to play out and there's a lot of pressure on some of the countries in europe to keep data on shore for data sovereignty reasons to focus on supporting local technology companies especially ones that are going to pay tax in the countries that they serve which is a criticism that has been bought against some global technology jones. religious and the west bank are still unsure of the fate of their homes and decision was

i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter to us is over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten dollars more in tempe each day. eighty five percent of global will you want to be old rich eight point six percent market so thirty percent is one of your somewhat four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and going rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building two point one billion dollars a industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only number you need remembering what one does you know who are to miss the one and only .
if you're watching an international welcome back to the program the u.k. intelligence and security committee has released a report on security failures during major terror attacks suffered by the u.k. twenty seventeen artes and that's the situation that gives us the details this is quite a damning report that was indeed released today by the intelligence and security committee of parliament focusing on the terrorist attacks that shook the u.k. back in twenty seventeen the westminster attack the manchester arena london bridge finsbury park and parsons green those five attacks that ended up taking a total of thirty six people's lives now on the manchester talk specifically the
attacker solomon abedi the support. about how he was able to visit an extremist in prison more than one time however without any follow up from the police or the m i five he was also apparently been able to return from libya without any interception from officials just days before killing twenty two people pop concerts in manchester and also it's been said in this report that he was actually flagged for review and known to the m i five since twenty fourteen however he was not referred to the government's anti-terrorism programme this is a bit of what the report had to say on the. we concluded that there were a number of failures in the handling of some of the biggest case it's impossible to say whether any of these if any of these had not happened but the devastating attacks of the twenty second of may could have been prevented but we can say that as a result of the failings potential opportunities to prevent it were missed we previously
made recommendations in all these areas yet the government failed to talk of the lessons to last year's tragic events must no result be real. well among some of the other issues highlighted in this report on the london bridge attack or this committee had found that the attacker was actually arrested eight months prior to the attack but was released they also spoke about how he was known for his links to an extremist group in the u.k. and that m i five intelligence services believed that he was supportive of isis it was also talked about in this report about some of the files and documents that were found on him that authorities had believed at the time could have led to him being prosecuted under the terrorism act however none of those things of course as we now know how up and and among some other things on the westminster also underscored by the committee that officials failed to connect the dots and that
that attacker had known links to al qaeda and yet nothing prevented him from carrying it out so really lots of questions raised about whether or not some of those attacks could potentially have been prevented. turkey's accession to the european union are back on the agenda this thursday with e.u. officials in the turkish capital ankara spend praise for making positive steps but it was stressed that it's too early to talk about opening a new chapter and relations or even moving further with your membership talks. well turkey has repeatedly been knocked back since nine hundred eighty seven when it first applied for membership although accession talks begin eight years later they have stalled several times over territorial issues with cyprus twenty sixteen began on a more positive footing with brussels and ankara signing
a refugee deal it meant turkey would take their burden of the migrant influx in exchange for accession talks later that year however against president of the one. relations and revealed that this year the e.u. commission's a long term budget proposal excludes turkey turkey is still working on six remaining requirements to ease the visa access for turkish citizens and europe is still unhappy about a number of internal issues in the country including the rule of law and human rights and the indefinite detention of journalists and her has also had strained relations with some of the blogs leading members. i can see turkey being admitted to the european union i have never been able to see it happening. a germany you have no relation whatsoever to democracy and you should know that your current actions and no different to those of the nazi period president jeopardizing
everything that you've built together with others and your unspeakable nazi comparisons do not cut the ties to those who want a partnership with. i'm calling on all my countrymen in germany the christian democrats the s.t.p. and the green party all enemies of turkey support those political parties who are not enemies of turkey. to discuss the story and more details now let's cross live to our goodman vote was a turkish former minister for you affairs and a chief negotiator off turkey and accession talks with the european union welcome to the program here in our team for national in saying q so europe seems to have adopted the carrot and stick approach with turkey promising future membership but at the same time delaying it repeatedly why do you think is that. well there are
many reasons but you have to your turkey credit we have been trying to become a member since one nine hundred fifty eight and we have been stopped many times but our resolute our determination should be listed in the guinness book of records we are determined to increase the living standards of the turkish people to the living standards of ordinary either member citizens that's why we are committed to dispatch and this is a win win scenario for turkey for turkey's neighbors and especially for european union today european leaders have started to understand that europe needs turkey at least as much as turkey needs europe but this is a unique relationship and it takes two to tango yes we want to be a part of the european union family but they have to want us as well or else we have other options that we will be able to utilize so this is a process as you mentioned there were seventy two requirements for
a reason liberal of asian now we're down to six and turkey is determined to fulfill all those requirements to make sure that our citizens can travel to e.u. member country solutions region without reserves and if you consider turkey being a member of the customs union since one thousand nine hundred sixty it is ridiculous that turks have to apply for visas to go to the countries where products and goods can easily go to but human beings still need reserves. what do you think if the e.u. keeps delaying turkey's membership is there a point where ankara might just give up. well the process started with a unanimous decision of european union member countries and turkey the only way to stop the process is either e.u. member countries can't reach and mud their unanimous decision to stop the process or turkey ten unilaterally request to withdraw from this process we are known to be
a patient nation a determination we like to focus at the results so. but we also have limited. resources and patience of course they have to consider turkey's needs as you mentioned in your report we are now housing three point five million syrians and more than half a million iraqis who are doing to go to europe but turkey has been providing them a safe haven and we have been spending more than thirty five billion dollars so far it is time for europe to go into their deep pockets and help out turkey because this is not only turkey's issue this is a global humanitarian issue and we have to find a solution to the crisis in syria all together turkey european union russia united states iran the other countries in the middle east you all have to work together to find a permanent solution to the crisis in syria i thank you so much for bringing us here
and signed that was adamant vote share eighty yet former turkish minister for e.u. f errors thank you thank you. and now we're moving on mass protest against the rising cost of fuel which began on saturday and france have now spilled over the country's borders with some neighboring countries reporting disruption for truckers and even several arrests the so-called yellow vest protests have also spread to french territory overseas now thirty police officers have been injured during demonstrations union island which is a french department in the indian ocean and that's according to a government spokesman france has deployed soldiers to calm the violence and the protests are being partly driven by discontent over poverty french president a minimum across the government must make greater hour for it to develop the.
romani very cold route initiatives to be taken that we have begun on the economic level. to help reunion in florida then there is what we're going to do in terms of public order and i see here i have asked the government to be intractable because we cannot accept the scenes which have taken place in the union are learnt is not the place. of french publisher and journalist told us that this protest is just the beginning. i think it's only a beginning but it's something that was really unexpected from the governments but on this side your logical basis it's easy to understand the france we look to the metro is the métropole france you have a major gap between metropole the big city france and the france the peripheral france and this is a major gap is becoming a struggle a struggle of what is dividing france it's because you have people you know yuppies
as you say who live in the big cities vote for metro and you have these people who are far away of a very remote places who have to go to to to find a job have to to to go to their job with. and they have to pay for that they have to pay for their care their to pay for the fuel they have to pay for the taxes they have to pay in order to get someone to the hospital because you don't have those but always were far away from where they live and that's this kind of france who is resisting you're watching one thousand for a national well we'll be back with more right at the top of the hour.
