9:05 pm
treaty but an american strategy aimed at removing international and legal obligations speak to all of has been gathering global reaction. well it does seem like this was expected like this was the where world leaders were waiting for this decision to be made especially if we look at the statements made by stoltenberg the nato secretary general federica market in the e.u. high representative for foreign affairs shortly before the mike pompei announcement that the u.s. would be pulling out of the i.m.f. it certainly seems like they felt it would be in coming so we must prepare for a world without the un if. i want to we definitely don't want to see our continent million back to being a battlefield or a place where. other superpowers confront themselves there's belongs to the far away history well straight away after the pompei o announcement stoltenberg tweeted out that russia must use the next six months to get their house in order in order

needs well it needs controls on the type of weapons the austrian foreign minister as well. added her voice saying that she regretted the u.s. decision but hopes for dialogue and that the i.n.f. treaty could be saved in the future now we've also heard reaction from iran if you cast your mind back to last year the united states unilaterally pulled out of a nuclear deal with tehran what we've heard from the iranian foreign minister is that deal signed with the united states may not be worth the ink peter because nick professor of history and the director of the nuclear studies institute at the american university tell us washington's move is a serious threat to peace. back in the mid one nine hundred eighty s. we had seventy thousand nuclear weapons one point five million here is she looked at the equivalent jobs and now we're potential is we can go back to that from seems indifferent to that risk the europeans understand it this was
9:08 pm
a nuclear treaty that eliminated an entire class of nuclear weapons and wasn't as good as what we hoped to get out of reykjavik but it was still a major step forward and now we're threatened with going back to that very very dangerous confrontational situation that we dealt with back in one nine hundred eighty seven given all the tensions now internationally the bonita how much scientists executives just kept their hands a doomsday clock at two minutes before midnight we've got hotspots around the world crises conflicts that are very very dangerous right now and every country all nine nuclear powers are modernizing their nuclear arsenals so we are in a very dangerous situation and the united states to be doing this now is quite reckless. the standoff between the venezuelan government time its opposition leader is escalating off to the u.s. officially recognized one door as interim president washington is now warned

9:10 pm
that penicillin in its defense. possible aggression the u.s. options on the table this is precedent to move by the united states you have an open call and mittens that the u.s. is claiming the principle role in trying to overthrow them a little government and the pull of very revolution and the government has people to represent and defend not going to a deal just become president from what i think he became president was elected by i mean seventy percent of the african nation with the situation intensifying what's happening in venezuela appears to have similarities to events in the past as if the trunk of explains they really think the whole world is too fullish to notice either you stand with the forces of freedom or you're in league with material and his mayhem where we stand with the syrian people or with their oppressors the former
9:11 pm
madeira regime has oppressed its people for years repressive regime of bashar al assad the tyranny of the now defunct mature regime the assad regime its brutality and repression active threat to the entire region growing threat to regional peace and security it is time for me to go it's time for assad to get out of the way. the stories of syria venezuela and the protest movements there are from two separate books but can someone tell me why anyone who is in charge of america always reads off the same manual when their national interest rate or spots another regime change opportunity let's go through the steps that are a must venezuela versus syria some great examples for you. people in american politics have a special sense for legitimacy what if they have a device for that or something from our perspective he has lost legitimacy he has
9:12 pm
failed to deliver on the promises he's willing people the national assembly invokes the country's constitution to declare new animals so great that even donald trump couldn't help picking it up after hillary to start backing the opposition you physically got to be there with them oh my god oh my god. oh. now that's a classic what could be more classic it almost makes you imagine that as kids all american politicians are told when you grow up you'll never succeed unless you sanctions and filthy regime syria check venezuela. check we'll keep increasing sanctions to cut off the regime with the money it needs to survive we're going to announce sanctions against patrol is to venezuela associate the name were paid
9:13 pm
a vase as it's known by its spanish acronym the state owned oil monopoly since the opposition in places like venezuela or syria are pretty much aware of the contents of the manual they know when it's the right time for them to start asking for weapons armed rebels defected soldiers there will always be those who will be happy to get new guns that are going to spend its way down so much of that we make a request to the us he says to support us in logistical terms of communication with weapons so we can realize venezuelan freedom what we need is and money and and and until the science back to the states and the people in charge there when you're only one step away from sending your old army in to get the job done don't forget to say that all options are on the table that the agreement which is all options always all options are on the. you know
9:14 pm
what all of this was an intentional never planned we will stop to topple the regime at all fit for all governments we cannot resolve someone else's civil war through force is that also in the manual on syria might not be the only example the u.s. is hinting at involvement in venezuela almost eight years since it turned threats into action when attraction in libya critics warn repeats of that scenario must be avoided. we must avoid the mistake of. venezuela as the world's biggest oil reserves according to all to you world support. so that the same countries behind the libyan catastrophe stand to gain this time she spoke earlier with my colleague from one of the things that many people draw attention to was we bizarro easily extractable
9:15 pm
large reserves very easy to capitalize on baghdad if you remember the countries that pushed the most for that military intervention were the countries that benefited the most from the levy in all sectors was france and the united kingdom this time around to you see the trumpet ministration officials being pretty often about. oil reserves and eagerness to lay their hands on them so. there's more than just one parallel there but the one thing that absolutely amazes me is that there is absolutely it nor lack of consideration for the consequences neither now nor back then and one would think that the obama administration people in these two consider levy as one of their mistakes president obama was actually pretty honest in saying that. he's mean regrets was never thinking about day one in libya while we are not hearing anything from the obama administration officials in fact babies seem to be very eager to join the trump administration when it comes to
9:16 pm
regime change in given that it would be speaking to the daughter of the security chief of the deposed libyan leader moammar gadhafi what did she say she's a very interesting personality she was essentially raised by the gadhafi family. who are friends with many of his children and obviously she didn't have benefited from the events in two thousand and eleven and let's listen to what she has to say that's happened in. other country only maybe in syria or. wasn't an easy to before. egypt egypt that's under control. syria now lets you see what's happening in syria but i think. the. bombing from. start to bomb being that they want to save. people civilian people and that's not true the libyan intervention didn't and
9:17 pm
then they faced a problem that is a huge migration way from libya is still a problem now in europe i've seen many black american countries. but isn't there a possibility that they could suffer too because if things turn ugly venezuela will be the united way because well and i really like this question that you're posing because i think many people are absolutely ignoring it i mean warmer graffy what he was alive was very open warning the european officials not to jump on this nato intervention bandwagon specifically because of the risks of opening the floodgates to you from the african continent into europe and he's warning was absolutely ignore that and i think many of the latin american and north american countries are absolutely oblivious to the risks of migration that could represent if it falls apart we are talking about meaning millions of people the continent is pretty unstable already. journalist maxwell one thought asked members
9:18 pm
of congress if they think the u.s. is meddling in venezuela's political system you think the u.s. is meddling in venezuela they're demanding. we're mossad's our man and if i don't think sony were the superpower in the world which i think if you're just supporting it it's pretty much the deciding there needs to be peace and so i think that's good for us it's we aren't that great and. you know i am a. combination of complete ignorance about the issue and an unwillingness to speak up among. so-called progressive was who campaigned on a platform of peace and in this case you have the us on the brink of some kind of war on a country of thirty million people proxy war would create a syria or libya style situation in the western hemisphere that could leave hundreds of thousands of dead and produce millions more refugees and yet when i

that they are completely blind even on the basis of the videotapes they were unable to accept responsibility for what is happening our efforts are peaceful that's my slogan i'm a humanist i want protesters to be protected and the greatest gift for me was when during at nine children came to kiss me to shake my hand they were happy to come to the protest with their parents so why call for an icky why call for everything to be broken it is not in our interests we are reasonable people we will not destroy our own country and meanwhile president micron has given an interview to french media ahead of the upcoming gala vest protest this weekend he surprised many with his claim that he is also a yellow vests under certain conditions. if the universe means being for higher paid work and a more efficient poem and then i am a yellow this publisher and writer amory morville believes mark warner is out of touch with the lives of ordinary french people. he thinks he's likely yellow there
