a completely democratic chemistry or well the munger doctrine was unveiled by a president james monroe in the nineteenth century his purpose was to stop any european interference in the affairs of nations in the americas the declaration adds that any such action will be seen as unfriendly towards the west but many interpret the doctrine as an assertion of us had germany over the entire western hemisphere quarter loop a coup where cabrera associate professor george mason university nineteenth century principles have no place in the modern world. the fundamental. foundations of democracy and without concern to negotiation by the international community to mark potok tween was. a period where there were some international. and europe was agreeing with america for the americans leaving the united states dealing with the issues of the western hemisphere today we're talking about
a multi parlor world and i don't really know why it would i mean what would that mean if america can be only for americans when you're talking about a world that's more globalized when other countries also have interest in the americas economic interests very important economic interests the border between between venezuela and colombia witnessed further violence this week as tensions over american aid deliveries intensified for those awaiting president nicolas maduro as blocks the shipments from entering claiming they could be carrying weapons and the international efforts to end the crisis have stalls with the u.n. security council rejecting draft resolutions from both russia and the u.s. . by voting against this resolution some members of this council continue to shield woodrow and his cronies and prolong the suffering of the venezuelan people the time for a peaceful transition to democracy is now going to use them with us finally we have
reached the culmination of the american workers treated double standards show over venezuela washington and london have both again robbed an entire nation of billions of dollars in the same time or pushing them to accept a pittance due to regime change as they say you first of all create great humanitarian problems and then you call upon the whole world to solve them we look forward to genuinely free and fair elections and to a government that reflects the will and aspirations of the venezuelan people google someone you have today's vote is an excellent example of where the veto rule is necessary for protecting the peace and people's right to determine their future both the russian and the us resolutions didn't pass the voting in the un security council russia one got less votes in favor that against four in favor and seven against the us draft was vetoed by russia and china the russian ambassador said that if the us resolution had passed it would be the first case in history that the united nations security council deposed
a legitimate leader and imposed another one to a sovereign country the venezuelan representative spoke as well calling to stop interfering into the matters of his country the power to this will has to do with having a swell and so very at the end of an assault on people they behave like colonial east they are planning a plan this time to put ration against it sort of right out the same kind of talking about what he thought and therefore i got the same time they are just feeling out of money you see something outrageous indeed so the diplomatic community in the crossroads again the u.n. as save members who spoke after the voting called it to all of their colleagues to put their differences aside to resolve the venezuelan crisis reporting in new york treated each other as r.t. . meanwhile hundreds of activists of rallied in the spanish capital madrid in support of president matua demonstrators waved tons of venezuela banners and denounced what they see as an attempt by the u.s. to intervene in another country's internal affairs our desire is to visit venezuela
as a un will grapple in two thousand and seventeen believes washington is likely to escalate the situation. quite clear to me that the united states is waging war on international law now that trump does that does not surprise me question is what will the. international price in pristine be for the united states will the united states take the risk of a flagrant aggression against his will there is a danger of violence it should be the functional the united nations to prevent that . stays washington has its side sternly set on venezuela's oil reserves the world's largest u.s. sanctions have already blocked seven billion dollars worth of state owned and sit
in a proactive move to vote as venezuela ordered the state oil companies european h.q. to relocate to mosco finds president has told us more about the decision. in fact the americans are pursuing a predatory policy appropriating venezuela's assets and therefore violating the legitimate interests of our country they violated all existing international investment rules aswell you were aware of them as well as accounts were frozen we have already begun to take specific legal steps we hired lawyers to protect our interests primarily with regard to our gold which is now illegally withheld by the bank of england we also began to take measures for when these wells legal protection we're talking about the theft of these oil and assets which was organized by the united states and venezuela has the right to protect its legitimate interests as for the transfer of the v.s.e. office from europe to moscow this is connected with the expansion of the cooperation of a russian company in the field of energy and the feel of oil and gas together with
the european office of. other branches of the company will also move to moscow the u.s. has also counseled the visas the forty nine influential venezuelans aligned with president. it's a is anyone who steals from the venezuelan papal undermines democracy is not welcome francisco domingo as head of latin american studies at london's middlesex university believes the u.s. is doing everything in its power to achieve its goal in venezuela. people in venezuela particularly the military civic alliance the soldiers drum and the pressure from the united states in particular almost as closely on the military literally for the last crew three years again and again through those who are shown . through blackmail you name it got those words where's it going on behind the scenes us all far they go almost nothing listen to me low these raises the specter
or something or nothing which can be organized irregular forces and trained and organized by the united states and mr abrams is exactly the best and vocally get it organized so this is jane concerned therefore that confirms not only won't always be fitted by the united states going to school something much more dramatic . than a sixteenth weekend straight yellow vest marches were held in cities across france on saturday clashes erupted at some of the demonstrations with police deploying take gas and water.

go down the path of peace and in pakistan the army has the state so there is a military establishment which is there for a walk on india we have a nationalist. party who choose craving for some kind of confrontation that box from which to give it to claxon under marla's in the forthcoming election so trump has dedicated much of a two hour unscripted speech to russia or tell you what he said and bring you other stories right after this short break. you know world's big partners a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that
mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy from day shouldn't let it be an arms race is often spearing dramatic developing the only relief i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk.
welcome back a bit by algeria is ailing president for a fifth time enough response student protests in the country on sunday police used water cannons to disperse the demonstrations do is these are tough leakers who is eighty two years old has been for twenty years and has rarely been seen in public since suffering a stroke in twenty thirty a similar rally took place in the heart of the french capital cairo is with people calling for the algerian leaders to abandon his plan. to stand in the election since the protests broke out those of speaker has issued a statement promising that in case he gets reelected in april he will last a full term and early elections will be called. on thursday donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un along with their retinues and thousands of journalists descended on vietnam's capital for their
bilateral sunit the much hyped talks failed to produce any deal on north korea's denuclearize ation and the lifting of u.s. sanctions against pyongyang and with trump and kim unable to agree on the terms despite a little headway washington and pyongyang say dialogue will continue and as the parent goodwill gesture the u.s. and south korea asked are spending their annual joint military exercises the pentagon says it's to reduce tension and advance steve nuclearize ation on the korean peninsula however the drills have not in fact been cancelled but rather replaced by another set of exercises artie's more can take stock of the second trump kim summit. the talks of annoy the queen trump and care more complete failure a blow out a bomb trump says the talks failed because of what he says were unreasonable demands they wanted the sanctions lifted. in their entirety and we couldn't do that
but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting because what we proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but they were partial removal we proposed to the united states articles of sanctions that impede the symbol of economy and the law of our people so with conflicting information about what actually took place at the meeting between the two leaders we've now got the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped in hanoi trying to jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing the song of peace as he praised the troops america does not see conflict but if we are forced to defend ourselves we will fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows about in nobody wants to play with you would think that with the utter train wreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donald trump
would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's good that the president did not get him anything was a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know they've got they want and gradually they will see they are sanctions regime begin to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of our economic prosperity that could be possible it's a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly flawed democratic presidential candidate tossing gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming. and waging a regime change war in north korea so well you know i'm deeply concerned about the
fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change war policy like pompei all laid out the washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w. bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to win a nobel peace prize any time soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok caleb mop and artsy new york political expert as told as the trumpet ministrations hawkish stance elsewhere and up a road a north korea's trust in white house promises. it was not no deal versus bad deal it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused
president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there's a crisis in confidence between north korea in the u.s. you know kim knows what's going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word around the world trump is going to try to show success. he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions in in vietnam over over north korean missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter political turmoil he's facing back home but if we've taken over isis in syria then the
question remains what about the troops u.s. troops who are there in syria what will happen with them those are questions of remain unanswered. back at home veering off script donald trump is given a two hour speech at the conservative political action conference but it seems there's little change to the topic from the table with the russia probe still dominating. america is winning again. america is respected again. these say something like russia please if you can get us hillary clinton's e-mails . so everybody's having a good time i'm glad that we're all happened sunday and that c.n.n. and others say. russia are going to get. all
collusion with russia. delusion. that nasty business with robert. why isn't. he wanted as f.b.i. director i mean the things that. it was in america first in many cases it was america last. we are reversing decades of blunders and betrayals you know i'm totally off script right now. and this is how i got elected by being off script. what russia's hand was apparently also found hey with putin accused of being among behind the speech. how many pieces of parts of president putin has to do us was president trying trying to
accomplish today he was also saying things that really look like lattimer putin scripted his speech these people some of them millionaires and there's the best the brightest squab made up giving you the best and they actually said that nobody came in with a hook nobody no white coat came minutes today to them and say would you lads when you were at least wait let the russian thing go home now i'm not trying to tell people what to do but one could argue that there are some things the president drop a said that might be garrulous a peak and controversial you might want to go there how this is trump arrangement but there is a trump high food putin hyphen russia during syndrome this is a preoccupation a pavlovian obeys and it's this weird kind of
a connection it's an obsession an obsessive compulsive. reaction our national that they can not let go. but there's other headlines for you this hour we will be back in thirty minutes with the latest to see that. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to the world of sport i'm sure i'll see you then. you know we'll. go to the capital and united states we all slow number one.
