4:11 pm
a civilized way but this place is different. with this vote today a new era starts for our country. from this moment if we have the course if you got the. europe has its darker aspects ethnic strife religious divides contested borders kosovo is all of that it is permanently on the brink of a new war it just needs a spock the self-proclaimed government there wants to appear strong escalate cashing in on ratings voters just love a good military parade where the cost of zero is the right place for that you decide. to. go to. the local. bar.

the parliament of the republic. serbia which is sworn to protect ethnic serbs who live in kosovo is afraid very afraid that this new army will eventually be used to target its brethren ethnic cleansing belgrade says that this could only mean one thing because of zero doesn't one piece everything the president doesn't evidently it does it all with the support of the us and britain is against the law serbia says even a military intervention is an option anything to stop this given that they would have to force their way past nato troops permanent least. nation and kosovo should give you an idea of how serious they are on the topic of nato the alliances long
4:13 pm
wanted kosovo to join in the process is already underway and even nato has called this move unwise while the transition of the kosovo security force is in principle and matter for kosovo to decide we have made clear this move is ill timed nato supports the development of the kosovo security force under its current mandate with a change of mandate the north atlantic council will now have to reexamine the level of nato as engagement with the kosovo security force why would that be why would many nato allies be against this new army because it risks war in europe again no one in that neighborhood wants a repeat of the nine hundred ninety nine catastrophe no one wants to deal with ethnic slaughter with war crimes genocide and refugees and these no one who has anything to lose now more than ever the government of course of them must engage with minority communities and coordinate closely with nato allies and partners as

it begins the ten year transition of its security forces the u.s. will be there with you the united states has been added for years prodding and encouraging kosovo to raise an army despite every objection and why not if they do were american weapon manufacturers might have a whole new army to outfit tension generated could guarantee an american presence in the area for decades to come and there's also jabot china and russia which support serbia and don't recognize kosovo all in all the felt safe plan sell the firewood sell the matches convince someone to spark a fire and then be there to put it out. political writer diana johnston explains what is behind america's support. lily said they're going to make their army the first scenes of the u.s. ambassadors in a journey will be there with you wherever that means which sounds like you use
4:15 pm
cause of all of provoke a war because you know it is will be there with you this is simply a gesture to emphasize percival status as an american colony because the base there is no later base it's an american base and and you look at his children there american flags all over the place if it came to a current between serbia and kosovo militarily. cause a causal army wouldn't have a chance so it's still all depend on nato and the americans little arm it can't have any significant military it's simply to try to attach itself to the americans and the americans are willing to lend itself to the united states. and british comedian a book to appear before students were shocked to find he had been sent a behavioral agreement the document was designed to quote avoid the problem of an

4:17 pm
a one off the u.k.'s national union of students seems to think so and says it has no evidence universities are dictating what guest speakers can say however there have been several other cases in the u.k. where comics have been stopped from performing or had their material censored dr laughs was banned from performing at cardiff university after hundreds signed a petition complaining his show trivialized rape and activist and comedian kate smith wait had her performance cancelled at a london university because of her views on prostitution she debated the story with the media commentator lionel. subsidy trivial for me to sign this document and to be honest if you have to stop and go what you know what they're asking me not to be sexist how could they then maybe it's about time that you sort of thought about the fact that it's twenty eighteen and checked out what your material is if every time you see a cup of coffee you shout i hate coffee it's disgusting or you won't be working in a coffee shop next week now let me explain what the problem is imagine if i came on
4:18 pm
r t and my colleague here in comes on you say do not talk about this subject do not mention the word putin kremlin united states trump would say whoa whoa wait a minute hold it we wouldn't say well those are the rules it's like yelling fire in a crowded theater you know it's not down to every comedian to decide what kind of stuff they want to do and if that means that they don't want to play you know there are shows that i know where the comedians perform to children personally i don't do those shows because i don't write the kind of material that suits those events and so i don't put myself forward we're not talking about a question you can't define races you can't units of what he did say use a dictionary we know we can't know know yet you know there are many you don't want me to carry. on and the rest absolutely raises a peek into me if you're hyper sensitive racism but that's not raises or yes it is
4:19 pm
no it's not so of use they don't see the homophobic i don't see anything that in any way is sexually gratuitous what does that mean looking it up in a dictionary i'm not asking what the word racist means i'm talking about the context your application of it but i do think that the answer is that everybody is entitled to you know here's my radical opinion i think we're entitled to free speech i think they're entitled to say this is what we think the rules should be and i think everybody else who's involved in that should be entitled to agree to disagree you're. going to let it go we're going to hear you the rules listen to what we're talking. about a comedian but by the way if there was no rules or what the heck was he being asked to sign we are losing our sense of humor we're losing our guts and our spine we're losing who we are removing our personality so keep it up comics keep it up you'll be out of a job in six months a dispute has a fled to within germany's governing coalition over an abortion or the story and
4:20 pm
more still to come. mind share that's where the playing field the battlefield of the furniture center so we're at war right now i mean so whether you know it trickles down to bullets and bombs and guns and stuff i mean that's the material we're already out war right now it's being played out. if you wake up in the morning and you feel a massive headache just because china and america who are in your mind. prison trump indeed has has he's way of communicating but you have to hand it to him but sometimes it's better to try and shake up the established way of doing things in order to come to a different conclusion i think what's worrying is this focus on you know news and
4:21 pm
jump news because one of the foundations of a democracy has to be the trust and the independent media all criticized then i think that's a problem from a communications perspective. of the program has emerged within germany's governing coalition over a long standing no banning doctors from advertising abortions the social democrats who all the junior pond in the coalition say the law is too posh and should be scrapped but the new leader of the christian democratic union says it should stay in place and a gret promise. last week could wind me back to strong conservative views in the states. at risk of criminal charges for offering

information about the procedure. a.k.k. took to twitter to say protecting life both born and unborn remains of utmost importance to her party we asked locals for their views on the controversial. i think it's a really difficult decision. and the women do that because. i think mostly they're desperate and not because yeah it's fancy and it is quite healthy to not promoted but to inform people about certain options they have to make it through to make a broad source of information right and better to get that information in time to see that this is very important and they're down and doctors can really get to see information to patients and it's hard to see leave something to remove are you so stupid to do you would just have an abortion because it's so much fun. dillinger
4:23 pm
party member bijela tell us early believes if a crime occurring bad continues the policy of her predecessor the party will lose support fast. it's trying to pretend to be a conservative but she's just following in the footsteps of angela merkel and those hate conservative issues that she's bringing up are failing to convince and i believe that she should be tackling the real issues that she should be going back to christian democrat philosophy of the one nine hundred fifty s. which was but you also have to tell your people that you have just an economy that works for everyone and those issues have been overlooked by the merkel government we have lots of poverty in our country and those are the values that people care about it and if it comes to just continue the policies of angle of merkel then the c.d.u.
