u.s. state department says the syrian government is planning a chemical attack vowing a rapid response so that since president trump claims he's under pressure from the military industrial complex to keep up american adventurism. good morning just content. thanks for joining us program. and the reason is up against it as she makes a 4th bid to push through her deal this time around the british prime minister dangling the carrot of a vote on a 2nd referendum before and peace but that's the last ditch concessions have been derided for all science. what if they are. closer to you but i won't get love through the cult this bill because it's basically a rehash of what was discussed before the same people who put it to you does that
3:02 am
teach you a single market or to reason may has offered 10 concessions or sweetness to her deal when he looks at the main ones. well she promised a bold new offer and here is to reason may's fault the incarnation of a brags that bell she needed something different enough to sell to m.p.'s and there are a number of concessions that she's made she's going to be making their case to the country over the next couple of weeks there are 10 main points too many to list but the 2 main headline grabbers are is that she will offer m.p.'s a vote on the option of a customs union and that big big carrot that she's offered m.p.'s will get to vote on a 2nd way friend but only if they pass the deal in the 1st place the government
3:03 am
will therefore include in the withdrawal agreement bill introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a 2nd referendum and this must take place before the withdrawal agreement can be russia side to reason mase never wanted it herself she's always said that she would just like to stick to implementing the results of the 1st one but she's trying everything she can to try her already dented political legacy she is after all a one issue prime minister she came to power almost 3 years ago promising to deliver on drags it out and she's still trying to salvage that take a listen to how grooming if a deal is rejected again some suggest leaving without a deal but whatever you think about outcome paula has been clear it will do all it can to stop it. if not no deal then it would have to be a general election or a 2nd referendum that could lead to revocation and no bricks it. to reason may said
3:04 am
that this is the last chance for m.p.'s to vote her deal through after all the default setting in october is for a no deal with drawl but it's also to reason may's last chance to save her political legacy and to deliver on the brags that she's promised throughout her leadership she's failed to pay her bill through parliament $3.00 times already she's failed to 6 weeks of cross party negotiations the u.k. was meant to leave the e.u. on the 29th of march that didn't happen and the u.k. wasn't supposed to be taking part in the e.u.'s parliamentary elections which is happening so naturally all the questions at the end of that big speech from journalists trying to make sense of it focused on one issue and that was when this she going to step down former director of the institute of economic affairs jamie whyte says the reason why he's got little chance of getting
3:05 am
a deal through parliament. comes possible. unlikely in a 2nd referendum i think it's increasingly likely. just continuing on until a full blown political crisis emerges which results in a general election on the assumption that theresa may doesn't get this through to the new leader of the conservative party soon enough that we started from scratch completely because there. is resistance in parliament to almost every possibility so that information is out no but it's still with us in 2 years and we'll have a new leader who can be starting from scratch. hours worsen hasn't left the e.u. quite yet it will take part in european elections on thursday brics it is set to dominate the u.k. vote which some think shouldn't even be happening. i mean a supporter of a 2nd referendum for about 2 and
3:06 am
a half years it's just gone on too long and i never once heard of what and i said is this i think this is a terror trial coming. to get here bricks if they did they had a hearing about it the voting in the european elections why is there well i want to leave european well it's like this being absolutely floating is really of course. i think it's completely useless and a waste of time for the english and a waste of money for the european union it's going to cost us a lot and it is only enough i don't want to don't know the english have never really been in the europe they always had their conditions in the surrealist in absurd. so i think it's important that they can vote they are still a part of europe at the moment. i think that the british like the french and all europeans leave and democratic countries and as long as democracy exists it is
3:07 am
necessary that everyone can express their ideas and ideals. it seems intuitive to me i can understand but it's difficult to motivate people to world to take part in an election that they should not be participating in. that is giving some europeans a headache ahead of the e.u. elections some appear more concerned about something else that's not that's russian meddling. all of the reports on how the kremlin is influence the spike being much touted as yet no word to be found. earlier this week fans were gripped by the series finale of game of thrones but there's also plenty of fun of a nother fantasy tale the story of meddling in a new elections winter isn't the only thing that's coming so is the risk of interference in our elections and guess who the suspect is we investigate the claims of russia's attempts to influence and undermine the democratic system in
3:08 am
europe fears that russia is infiltrating the very heart of european democracy and we're starting to see the early signs of essential you kind of a repeat of what we saw in the us elections in regard to russian hacking and russian tampering but just as some fans of the wranglings of west rovs were left disappointed by the way their show ended a dragnet operated by social media companies looking for misinformation and propaganda has turned up well nothing nothing from google. so far we haven't seen any interference on the platforms what about facebook there have been no published accounts of attacks specifically related to the e.u. election today twitter that's full of angry people already they must have turned up something we're always seeing a baseline level of it but nothing that has coalesced around a specific topic theme or group or even country but there was one area where it was
3:09 am
said that there was evidence of russian interference the fact that we hear it r t the russian news service sputnik had been talking about the e.u. elections they have been picking up the theme consistently over the past few months they do seem to be pushing slightly and establishment messages. we've seen european politicians focus their attention on alleged russian meddling but what about real issues russia has been a very common scapegoat these past years i was in western democracies the narrative these past years must be careful there are russian does russian influence the russians are behind this russian is trying to just you're a democracy and now we don't have any proof or of the interest or asked what have you got we don't have any and the whole narrative just collapsed politicians today were for your party russia and moscow behind the rise in the populist movements don't haven't already many more they're losing this argument every day and they're in a very bad situation once you prove that there is no more problem coming from russia
3:10 am
then you have to face the fact that the problem is coming from yourself and it seems that churchill was untrue the country. big corporations meanwhile have been quite open about who they support with some actively opposing the growing euro skeptic movement among those singing the praises of a united europe a german airline as well as digital music streaming service spotify and german car manufacturer folks log in as well the c.e.o. of investment managers told us large corporations have a vested. interest. in the attitude of the big corporations banks has always been the same of course they have 3 in this and this european environment is not a surprise to me that they are actively and strongly supporting busy the european views they have a very large network network and they use they use it no leverage in it in order to bring up their policies their policies they like the most many of the issues as we
3:11 am
know underestimated or even ignored by europe and by these large corporations there are real issues that europe and these large corporations did that we didn't god and didn't respond to you know they come up with some ok europe is not is not perfect about the e.u. now there is something to fix where there is a lot to fix there is a lot to fix because they have moved too much forward into a project without taking into consideration legitimate issues that arise by the population. seems the specter of russian meddling is also set to hang over the 2020 u.s. presidential election as well as democratic hopeful tulsi gabbard is facing criticism over allegedly receiving funds from people being described as putin apologist as rubbish the claims as fake news them are drawing criticism from some quarters for adopting donald trump style of language. but the whole lot of. what i am focused on is what is in the best interest of the american people what is in the best interest
3:12 am
of our national security keeping the american people think the reason the article claims that the hawaii congresswoman received donations from 3 individuals one of them russian studies professor at new york university another a vocal supporter who nonetheless was arrested in russia in 2016 and the 3rd a former employee at this channel who appears to have donated to go abroad under the alias goofy grapes or someone question however seems minor at least relative to the beast theory they've generated 2 of the 3 contributors reportedly provided to go out with a $1000.00 each a drop in the ocean of course for a presidential campaign the size of the 3rd the nation hasn't been revealed a former candidate for new york city council mani told us it's absurd to single out these 3 donors from thousands. i don't think they're credible allegations at all i you know i guess i think this whole thing about russia is so completely overblown
3:13 am
what the media is doing is making it that she's an essentially an agent of the kremlin which is so ridiculous so i think what she needs to do is essentially tell the world that listen re people with. you know minimal ties to russia not even ties to russia doesn't that's an independent opinion i've given to my campaign i did 65000 donors so you know you can't really make an argument that you know that my my candidacy is supported by russian propaganda machine you know it's silly and i being if she keeps. kind of promoting that message people will be able to see what's really going on. the u.s. state department says it's expecting new chemical attacks by syrian president bashar al assad is promising a quick response washington has failed to substantiate claims that early attacks against syrian citizens were actually conducted by the government this comes off the donald trump recently claimed he'd been pressured by the u.s.
3:14 am
arms industry to keep thousands of american soldiers in syria more than as the details. so who sets us foreign policy well when it comes to the projection of military force of the constitution and common sense says that's the president your sound george w. bush put it but i'm the decider and i decide what is best but recent statements from donald trump throw that into question here is what he said if you do have a military industrial complex they do like war you know in syria with the caliphate so i wipe out 100 percent of the caliphate i shall want to bring our troops back home to place one crazy they want to keep the thing you have people here in why she want it they never want to leave some day people will explain what this is and if you will do have you do have a group and they call it the military just a couple so according to trump he wanted to bring troops back from syria but he was compelled to leave several 100 of them there why well according to him the usa has
3:15 am
quite a powerful military industrial complex and if our president is fighting against it it seems that he's hiding this fight rather well recently donald trump appointed patrick shanahan as his new secretary of defense shanahan spent 30 years at boeing which is one of the largest defense contractors in the united states and one of the world's biggest arms manufacturers and like many other companies contracted by the pentagon boeing is having a great year. folks in this industry have actually pointed to what they call the trump effect have you seen that in terms of our allies and our spending not only have i seen we think it's the best time we've ever seen in a long time for the defense industry but it's not just the truck presidency that has been a boon to the military industrial complex many different political leaders in the united states have campaigned on a platform of peace and then expanded wars once they've taken office. nations making progress toward freedom will find america is their friend. we're promoter of
3:16 am
values will. peace. we've lost thousands of american lives spent nearly a trillion dollars alienated allies neglected emerging all in the cause of fighting a war for well over 5 years in a country that had absolutely nothing to do with the 911 attacks. i will never send our finest into battle unless necessary and i mean absolutely necessary and will only do so if ringback we have a plan for victory with a capital.
3:17 am
if we've learned nothing from history the 34th us president dwight d. eisenhower warned the public about unwarranted influences when he left office over 60 years ago in the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether sought or runs on by the military industrial complex . the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist . we must never let the weight of this combination in danger are limiting our democratic process we should take nothing for granted. in the american people don't want war. as the peace candidate and then you know we did leave the starwars even richard nixon during the vietnam war was only elected because he was
3:18 am
seeing he had a secret plan for ending the vietnam war as it turned out the secret plan was to escalate the war and more troops. and enlarged. you know these large monopolistic companies wanting to get a huge bunch of money they like threats of war they like active war of the drug you know they're the war mongers and they have an enormous amount of influence in that commensurate with the amount of money that they couldn't campaigns. and protests have erupted in the in the amazing tablets a lot of people are calling foul over the results of the presidential election more on that and other stories after this point. are china in the u.s. in training and endgame the battle lines have been drawn and demands made in this
3:19 am
trade war it appears both sides are preparing for the long haul what does it mean to win a trade war what does it mean to lose and how far could this test. answering an era the end of flag money no money with flags on it or part of a token tate or royal person good may. seem wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any new world view yet to stamp out these days to come as a whole and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.

a slap in the face on wednesday united nations is expected to vote overwhelmingly in favor of returning the u.k. controlled silence in the indian ocean back to boris's. and so yes islands have been at the center of a decades long dispute between britain and more issues which in the 1960 s. ceded the territories in exchange for independence plus $3000000.00 pounds and that move allowed the united states in 1071 to build a military base on diego garcia the largest of the atolls and britain addicted about 1500 on a nose to make room for the united states and base do garcia was an important launchpad for u.s. missions in iraq and afghanistan the u.s. lease runs until 2036 so washington will join britain in today's vote serene gene

from the chair goss refugee group says america is stopping islanders from returning . my question has been always why they don't want. to return. bridges over again how much. this are when managed more sneak by us for me as a 2nd generation i think it's dad told them to realize why they don't eat a roll. the international court of justice for all that britain illegally split the islands and should return them back to more riches written rejected that rolling took me issue to the general assembly in 2017 only 15 delegates opposed as a sion beds some in the u.k. also aren't happy about britain's ownership of the islands. i wish to express my concern that the government appears ready to disregard international law and ignore
3:23 am
a ruling of the international court of justice and the right of chad gossoons to return to their homes this is not a matter of degree for the general assembly it's a bilateral sovereignty dispute between the united kingdom. it is a complete case and double standards and in fact many african nations will have voted. in favor of the england giving it up right now the big occupier of this island is not the u.k. there are some you case that staffers from the military because it's all military but it's the united states that controls a lot of them drones there have. got to stand over the past few years came from this base it's also the the there's also a prison there a kind of more isolated version of one time and i think at best what we can expect might be some kind of financial compensation for the shugart ians living in

marriages it's sad to say but to keep quiet unless we see political change elsewhere and unless the united states decides that it wants to change its foreign policy for good. lawmakers in the u.s. congress have been briefed by a troubled ministration officials on threats coming from iran that have been averted thanks to washington's latest show of force in the middle east some democrats however didn't buy what they heard. it deterred a tax base sorry posturing of assets to target attacks against american forces it's been our worry from the beginning that this is a blind escalation with the hope that the arabians will come to the table in the end or the hope of iranian people will rise up to topple the regime worry very much but intentionally or unintentionally we curb and create a situation in which
