it's not completely here. but i can think. prostration and go both in the u.k. and europe as prime minister the reason may try. to get a brooks a deal over the line sweetening it's at this time with a promise to peace to hold a vote on a 2nd referendum should they choose to back it. would you elections just around the corner tech giants say there's no sign of any russian interference the sport much media and political hype to the contrary. u.s. state department says the syrian government is planning a chemical attack vowing a rapid response if so that is president from claims he's under pressure from the military industrial complex to keep up america adventurism abroad.
6:01 am
low welcome to our international life from moscow i'm daniel hawkins thanks for joining us the program. the reason is once again up against the machine makes a 4th bid to push bricks at the through parliament this time around the british prime minister is throwing the carrots of a vote on a 2nd referendum before him peace but that of a last ditch concessions have been derided from all sides. whether to you. they were to you but i won't go through the other. because it's basically a rehash of what was discussed before this impede nor the food for the deal does that to you with the single market where she promised a bold new offer and here is to reason may's false the incarnation of a brags that bell she needed something different enough to sell to m.p.'s and there
6:02 am
are a number of concessions that she's made she's going to be making the 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 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 ratified to reason may's 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
6:03 am
a one issue prime minister she came to power almost 3 years ago promising to deliver on gregg's it and she's still trying to salvage that take a listen to how grooming if the 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. then it would have to be a general election or a 2nd referendum that could lead to revocation and no. reason may said that this is the last chance for m.p.'s to vote good 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
6:04 am
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 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 is she going to step down some officials are pleased with the reason why these latest efforts. to reopen bricks and negotiations i mean of course has been having a field day. theresa may 1st of her name queen of making it up as you go along. kept in chains and mother of chaos may's new deal got to vote for bridget to stop waitin for for no
6:05 am
reason lucian of brax. former director of research at the institute of economic affairs jamie whyte says the reason why he's got no chance of getting her deal over the line. 3 outcomes that are possible and unlikely in a 2nd referendum i think it's increasingly likely or 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 they'll be a new leader of the conservative party soon enough that person was sent to be starting from scratch not completely because they'll know that there's resistance in parliament almost every possibility so that information is out now but still with made no material progress in 2 years and will have a new leader who can be starting from scratch and while britain hasn't left the e.u. quite yet it will take part in the european elections on thursday see the e.u.
6:06 am
figures aren't especially pleased about the prospect of seeing hardcore brigadiers galloping into the work into the european parliament front says economy minister for one said the quicker the u.k. leaves the better some think britain's e.u. vote shouldn't even be happening. i mean supporter of the 2nd referendum for about 2 and a half years it's just gone on too long and i never once heard of it and that's how it is i think this is a terror trial coming. to get here bricks if they did their hearing about it hear me voting in the european elections why is that i well i want to leave european well it's like this we absolutely floating is really important. or 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
6:07 am
a lot. more to don't know the english have never really been in the europe they always had the conditions i thought in the surrealist in absurd. i think it's important that they can vote they are still a part of europe at the moment. i think the british want the french and all europeans leave and democratic countries and as long as democracy exists it is necessary that everyone can express their ideas in an ideal. you'll ask it seems intuitive to me i can understand what is difficult to motorways of people 2 worlds to take it was the election that they should know this but separating. and while brooks is giving some europeans a headache the head of the e.u. elections are more concerned about something else that's not happening and that's russia meddling that is peter all of the reports how the company's influence despite being much touted is nowhere 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
6:08 am
a nother fantasy tale the story of meddling in a you 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 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. nothing nothing from google. so far we haven't seen any interference on the platforms what about facebook there have been
6:09 am
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 said that there was evidence of russian interference the fact that we here at r t the russian news service sputnik have 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 anti 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
6:10 am
russians are behind this russian is trying to just you're the marxist and now we don't have any proof or of the interest or ask what have you got they 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 have an argument anymore or they're using this argument every day and they're in a very bad situation once you prove that there is no more problem coming from russia then you have to face the fact that the problem is coming from yourself and the teams chose intro to country. the u.s. state department says it has intelligence suggesting the syrian government is planning a chemical attack and vows a quick response this comes as the trump claims he's being pressured by the u.s. arms industry to keep thousands of american soldiers in syria in a more reports. so who sets u.s. foreign policy well when it comes to the projection of a military. force of the constitution and common sense says that's the president here's sound george w.
6:11 am
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 it there you have people here in wa 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 industrial complex 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 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
6:12 am
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 values we promote peace.
6:13 am
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 we have a plan for victory with a capital. it's as if we've learned nothing from history the 34th us president dwight 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
6:14 am
unwarranted influence whether sought or unsought by the military industrial complex . the but pensions by 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 presidents always run as the peace candidate and then you know we never did leave the starwars even richard nixon during the vietnam war was only elected because he was seeing he had a secret plan for ending the vietnam war as it turned out the secret plan was to escalate the war and add more troops and enlarged. you know these large monopolies. to companies wanting to get a huge bunch of money the light threats of war they like active war
6:15 am
of the. you know the other war mongers and they have an enormous amount of influence and it commensurate with the amount of money that they put into campaigns . are going to show up right now we're back with more global headlines in just a few months time. are we entering into era the end of flag money no money with flags on it or pressure to open the tate or royal person good day. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see that.
6:16 am
what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president. or some want to. have to go to the press it's like them before 3 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the house. or sit. on. the program 6 people have been killed and 200 have been injured during a protest in the indonesian capital itself the result of the. presidential election was announced. and.

6:18 am
iranians will come to the table in the end or the hope of the iranian people will rise up to topple the regime. very much intentionally or unintentionally. and create a situation in which a war will take place. among its recent steps against the run the us that lloyd an aircraft carrier and bombers in the persian gulf prior to that the trumpeter ministration imposed sanctions on a rainy oil promising to expand them to countries which buy up. we're running president has responded by saying u.s. pressure can't break the radian people claims to ron is actually growing more resilient thanks to the sanctions artie's afshin rattansi spoke to former iranian negotiator hussein. about the current situation between the 2 states you can catch the whole interview later on r.t. international. what are you see during president trump i have never seen such conflicting confusing a strategy. from the u.s.
6:19 am
side in regard to iran between all signatories of iran nuclear deal the us has completely violated we draw from the deal while it did the united nations security council the europeans including u.k. they have failed to deliver a clear commitments for normal trade and business with iran for 2 years i don't believe such a strategy president conflicting strategy bullinger strategy. strategy a president is following at the current currently i don't believe. would ever be ready to negotiate with such administration except if president changes it strategy comply with the nuclear deal approved by united nations security council and then respect iran. respect the principles of mutual
6:20 am
respect and non interference then i believe there will be a chance. of the fates of people forced out of their homes by britain nearly 60 years ago may be decided on wednesday the united nations is expected to vote overwhelmingly in favor of the u.k. ceding control of the silence in the indian ocean back to more russia's islanders and their descendants hope this will pave the way for a return to their homes. well of course islands have been at the center of a decades long dispute between britain and switch in the $160.00 s. ceded the territories in exchange for independence plus $3000000.00 pounds that move allowed the united states in 1991 to build a military base there on diego garcia that's the largest of the atolls and britain
6:21 am
evicted about $1500.00 islanders to make room for the u.s. airbase diego garcia was an important launch pad for u.s. missions in iraq and afghanistan the u.s. lease runs until 2036 so washington will likely join britain in today's vote sabrina jean from the chair goss refugee group says america is stopping islanders from returning. my question has been always why they don't. do return on our bridges over again how much. this hour and then manage more sneaky by us for me as a 2nd generation. it's god told them to realize what they don't ease role earlier the international court of justice ruled that britain illegally split the islands and should return them back to more russia's return rejected the
6:22 am
ruling and more issues took the shooter the general assembly 2017 just 15 delegates opposed. bed some in the u.k. also aren't happy about britain's ownership of the island. i wish to express my concern that the government appears ready to disregard international law and ignore 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 decorum nice for the general assembly it's a bilateral sovereignty dispute between the united kingdom and maurice it is a complete case and double standard 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 our military but it's the united states that controls it a lot of them drones there have. got to stand over the past few years came
6:23 am
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. cognac is calling on washington to return a cargo ship seized and impounded an american somewhere that the model was made by north korea's ambassador to the you where who gave a press conference on tuesday the united states has a committee of unlawful and to be just the act of protesting our coverage provided our nest. possibly taking 8 americans are more.
6:24 am
and to the police test of the unilateral sanctions. violation. earlier this month u.s. authorities said they rest in the ship named the wise honest for violating international sanctions by loading coal an old korean port it's not the 1st time the ship's been seized on suspicion of violating un sanctions which restrict north korea from exporting coal or importing oil among other commodities. and washington explained the seizure as a move to enforce the sanctions imposed on north korea and that its nuclear program human rights attorney eric thinks this case may spell the end for u.s. efforts to build relations with the reclusive country. overreaching on the part of the u.s. and seen as a leverage issue arguably it's denying this interdiction it's called of a ship this is denying the ability for the country to even feed itself in
6:25 am
a lot of ways that resolution didn't allow the seizure of the ship some less they fail to cooperate with the inspection when they are examined and there's really no evidence of that i would suspect that it's going to scuttle progress between the united states and north korea it's going to get an excuse for the hardliners in the trumpet ministration who don't want negotiations to go forward and will be falling back to square one unfortunately ability myself that's it for this hour see you again in 30 minutes for the latest headlines. if you will not obey the voice of the lord your god to do all these months and. then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you. and then the white
