armed forces are standing behind the people and the constitution but very soon his boastful overstatement was clear desertions were sporadic local and way below the critical mass needed to have the dura worried and all that leads us here to a complete stalemate why don't has won the battle for the hearts and minds on capitol hill for the embassies for the right to be called president of venezuela on the diplomatic papers of 3rd party countries but not his own to like to see them into vain militarily but your office and i as president in charge of the national parliament will evaluate all necessary options however cautious it may be an official evaluation of an international intervention is as good as an open call for one but with the us no longer looking as trigger happy as before why do it has sent his emissaries to talk with the duro no longer too good for that and the us

apparently once confident a quick power play would lead to victory now has learned that all or doesn't elect presidents. have done off with the report there are some in washington though who despite the resumption of the oslo talks appear to believe aggression is the best policy senator lindsey graham even recently invoked the invasion of grenada in 1983 which was widely viewed as a legal to make the case for intervention into the swill. douras not the legitimate leader of venezuela he would be in power without 6 or $7000.00 cuban security forces in venezuela i would do exactly what reagan did i would give cuba an ultimatum to get out of venice way look at they don't i would let the bennett soil and military know you got to choose between democracy and the doura and if you choose madeira and cuba we're coming after you. well under president reagan in 1903 the u.s. sent and vision force into the navy under the pretext of protecting american
10:07 am
citizens from the car being nation's marxist leadership in just over a week operation urgent fury had overthrown the cuba aligned government their own senator graham's comparison it does seem to be glossing over some crucial differences between venezuela and grenada in the eighty's for starters the island nation of grenada is geographically much smaller than venice we're making it easier to access and control in 1903 its population started 96000 venice wheelers has 32000000 back then the us the plight around 6000 troops on according to some estimates a u.s. military intervention in venezuela today would probably require 150000 soldiers author down conflict to list on an invasion by washington would be disastrous. the idea that the u.s. is going to be able enough the venezuelan government grenada style is just silliness of course the u.s. could try a military option on the u.s.
10:08 am
point of view it would be a disaster it would be a very protracted military struggle europe would in the end not support it i think most south american countries would not support it even apparently the military brazil i think the u.s. for standard and i think diplomatically it would be a disaster for the u.s. and it could be a disaster in many other way again if they got the u.s. got something to another vietnam war it would cause the deaths of course u.s. personnel would cost trillions of dollars and the treasury in many cause rebellion will be new united states against the government as we saw during the vietnam war so it's a very very risky proposition for the u.s. to be. lot of headlines coming out of that region at the moment there is also a scandal unfolding in neighboring colombia the head of its u.s.

backed army is under pressure to resign over an alleged cover up of the killing of thousands of civilians more than a decade ago we'll be reporting on that later in the program. the head of germany's ruling party is facing a major backlash over 50000 people have signed a petition against what they say are current plans for censorship it comes after her statements on imposing stricter measures on political discourse on the internet . but isn't this we lost among young voters for 2 reasons we failed to adequately address issues that are important to them and we feel due to the handling of the rise of radio where would happen if 70 newspapers decided just 2 days before the election to make a joint appeal don't vote for the c.d.u. or s.p.d. that would be a clear case of political bias in the run up to an election so why rules should

freedom of expression and repression of the german constitutional me freedom party here said political movements need to really have a dialogue with social media platforms martin daughter from the left also told us maintaining relations with tech savvy youth is crucial. all young people are searching for whole can we don't build up a society they way they want to participate in the decision process in the society to the movement of produce for future good out there as well on the internet like brutal and up us is a part of a search for or participation in society for a person to fall future and the less the political mainstream. able to create discourse with witchery the trick the emotion the people emotionally and by the underlying political more conscious of them all start to organize themselves

more or move. so much for different frames where they can press. they want to turn attention north of there to poland where revelations in a documentary that expose child sex abuse in the country's roman catholic church have sparked a new wave of rage in the country the film was financed through a crowd funding campaign it's been viewed more than $20000000.00 times on each of below. most of. finally the peta followers in black cloaks will face justice make more movies like this one which discloses the deception of the church big respect everyone who decided to be a part of this film are just tell of all their horrible experience without the camera the catholic church doesn't lead people to god it just makes them run away
10:13 am
from him the governing polish law and justice party has been widely supported by the country's religiously conservative population positions itself as a defender of christian values its leader initiated a vote in parliament on longer prison terms for child abusers after the documentary attracted a lot of attention but he also accused those who raise the issue of abuse by priests of undermining and offending the faith stating as you can see there there is no poland without the church. you know that everyone has the right to express their opinion but i think politicians need to be more careful with their what it's not just a matter of individual offend the crimes were covered up these things were known to be the church authorities. the way they moved the offenders from parish to parish is horrendous there should be real punishment me losing the position in church is
10:14 am
not punishment justice must be served. it's simple it's hard to say maybe kaczynski want to say it was an attack on christian values he is partly right it's like living in an apartment and closing their eyes to the neighbors pathological family and when a tragedy happens everyone wakes up but if you react early you can prevent a tragedy you have to fight against those who degenerates you the film shows your truth and how people reacted to truth is their private matter but i do not consider this move in a tad. on to church. which you know to be kept separate from politics not will solve the problem. yeah as we said earlier we're going back to latin america now where the head of the colombian army is on pressure to resign after he was linked to the alleged cover up of civilian killings roughly a decade ago documents leaked to the associated press news agency from an ongoing investigation have cast a shadow over the activities of the u.s. military in colombia the papers show that the military leader made several

questionable payments to suppose informants that led to combat operations against suspected rebels the general has denied his involvement in any extra judicial killings killam opens across the story for us. colombia's top ranking general is facing some new damning revelations this is the latest blow to the reputation of the country's us back to military and its crackdown on leftist guerrillas decades ago human rights watch has long been raising and highlighting atrocities. according to the prosecutor files general nicasio martinez aspinall would pay to
10:16 am
a source for the location of rebels and then the soldiers would move in for the kill every one point the general was trying to claim he had no idea that these payments were being issued however the new documents ripped that claim to shreds the general reportedly ordered his troops to double the body count and to accept that higher civilian casualties was just a natural consequence the new york times reporter who was working on this story was recently forced to flee the country human rights and press freedom groups are worried. his have the right to question any piece of reporting but dangerous irresponsible comments like those medias nicholas casey how the potential to endanger the security and discourage reporting insist of issues in colombia and you would think that with human rights violations an american journalist being threatened the u.s. 6 colombia relations might actually suffer well if you thought that you would be wrong apparently there was just a meeting between the vice president of colombia and the u.s. secretary of defense that was described as friendly you will with
10:17 am
a thug to the united states support for many years we have been working to with your institutions the usa continues to shower weapons on colombia seeing it as a useful ally against venezuela bolivia and other opponents trump just spoke highly of the u.s. columb. be a partnership i just want to thank the president for working with us and we're working together our militaries are very focused on working together and if they don't know or less your own people in colombia deeply concerned about the situation and they want to see justice served and for the truth to be uncovered it's also vital for the government and its international status we do not know whether the general will lose these posts this is the task of the justice system which needs to resolve the case imagine that some high ranking venezuelan commander was accused of killing civilians and then covering it up the white house would be up in arms but when it comes to a friend like colombia mass killings aren't such a big deal and r.t.

new york is the plan to head in the program including the pressure mounting on israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu find out why after this short break. in a world big part of the law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter 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 truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.

he would lead sort of suffered another humiliating black eye and bloody nose all across europe voters put believes on notice the status quo is not working for the people the surge to the right in the rise of populism may be a game changer will be elite journalists it's. 19 minutes into the program welcome back the clock is ticking down on israel's prime minister who house until the end of today to form a government or face another election with more on the challenges facing binyamin netanyahu. he did win the snap elections that he was responsible for calling
10:20 am
on april the 9th and this gave him 42 days in which to form this new coalition and the prognosis really was that he would succeed to do so but unfortunately for him certainly he hasn't the sticking point comes from a former ally a former defense minister who served under netanyahu don't even men who is the leader of a right wing political party and the issue at play is the whole matter of whether or not ultra religious jews off a ducks too should serve in the israeli army this is an issue that has resulted in the past and it goes back months if not years in violent clashes between israeli police and religious jews. now the israeli parliament is made up of $120.00 seats to form the next government
10:21 am
netanyahu needs a minimum of $61.00 and without the lieberman party he only has 60 but the problem is that those 60 seats comprise a fair number of religious parties who are against conscription for the sun so this announcement really being pulled between iraq and place on the one hand trying to satisfy lieberman who wants to see these religious soldiers in the army and his religious clinician partners who don't this is a topic that has often divided israeli society and when we took to the streets we found that there was a very diverse view of opinion think orthodox should go to the army because that's not what they believe in and just because we believe in it doesn't mean that's the right thing to do everyone can you know kind of chip in and be integrated into the oaks and the rich people should actually we should let some of them actually study . study studied bible study torah although most of the most of them should really
10:22 am
should really either get drafted to the army or do some sort of civil service they should serve as anyone else now this is really a smokescreen for a deeper political struggle that is happening but tween men and netanyahu and certainly most people are having this false sense that lieberman feels about pushing netanyahu into a corner this is really his big chance of potentially winning and attaining the highest office here in israel but it remains to be seen of course we're learning in the coming hours what develops. i want to talk rubbish because malaysia is mounting a fight against illegal imports of contaminated non-recyclable plastics the environment minister vote on tuesday to ship 3000 tomans of waste back to their countries of origin including the us britain france japan she showed reporters the scale of the problem for malaysia has been
10:23 am
a war with waste since china sculpt importing millions of tons of plastics from the belle of the world last your much of it has been finding its way to other neighboring countries the malaysian environment minister insisted the practice has to stop. whoever this sand there are ways to malaysia. where those plastic ways are whatever ways we will send it back and we will fight back even though we are a small country we cannot be bullied by a developed countries. it's not a pretty picture is that a malaysia isn't the only so i think asian country pushing back against the influx of rubbish canada has agreed to accept the return of a huge shipment dumped in the philippines but that's only after a 6 year long dispute was all of last week over 800 shipping containers of mislabeled heisler waste being sent to 2 ports in the philippines back in 2030
10:24 am
minutes left to fester there the political fallout became so severe that president a territory threatened to dump the rubbish canadian waters. you know when that. lord it. 2 is. a lovely. learned that if that. if you learn. well environmental campaigner george border told us about what he sees as the on ethical side of free trade. so the wind phenomenon and this is part of his work is what's known by some as waste colonialism and really you know the secret of so-called free trade is that it's free for corporations to do what the how they like but there is very little freedom for. you know poor countries that are often the subject of this
10:25 am
you know these toxic arrivals to do anything about it off to china announced a ban on imports of plastics at the end of 2017 that neighboring countries in asia philippines. have now become the dumping grounds for that country for that waste and the depressing thing is there seems to be no evidence whatsoever that countries like the u.k. are doing any kind of follow up to make sure that that waste is being treated in a remote responsible way. there's no inspection of that regulations. this year's european parliamentary elections helping kohl the start of a new era for the bloc but is it so does that justify that labeling or peter unguessed run the rule over than in crosstalk it starts in moments.

in the e.u. elections i'm joined by my guest john white and he's a political commentator and writer in brussels we have here is an independent journalist and in paris we cross to francesco so rich you know he is deputy director at c.e. sciences poll all right gentlemen crossed means you can jump in anytime you want i always appreciate it let's go to luke in brussels let's go to the belly of the beast itself how is brussels meaning the e.u. stomaching these election results because you can't say they were unexpected maybe a point here or maybe a point there but more or less it was expected there would be a populous would do well the right more right wing parties would do well and we have to point out in spain the left did pretty well there as well but there's certainly you can't say it's a protest vote anymore the trends are there and the and the number of people that went out to vote were quite astounding considering european elections rypien
10:30 am
elections are not that popular with with voters but they it was this time around so luke what is changed go ahead. what i would say they are saying much for the moment to brussels is preparing itself for designating the president of the commission and the all the president's council of parliament etc in the coming weeks so. this is a moment where of course you can reflect upon the results and. and these results are never as fantastically good often testicular bad as expected because you have 27 countries or 28 still with the britain that participated and. of the populist the so-called populist is there there now must the something must have something like 25 percent of the vote in european parliament which is quite big a bit less than expected maybe and the greens on the other side of the all the major winners.
