1:05 am
who these have might have been incorporated into the attack but why why or why is anyone complaining especially the saudis since the u.s. has been providing the bombs and the aircraft to the saudis to bomb yemen for 4 years so the who with these are just responding back then again to those saying it's iran because there are alleged iranian components in the day bri does that mean that the u.s. is responsible for horrific massacres in yemen i mean sure saudi arabia dropped the bombs but those say made in the united states more likely than not a arabia has been clearing the shelves of american arms manufacturers recently by this logic there's no need to investigate or collect evidence it's american bombs it has got to be america.

1:08 am
a picture to the leader of the socialist party. now the u.s. state department also says that it is no big deal wedo still receives full u.s. backing but when it comes to hugo chavez the story is a big deal never mind that it's more than a decade old in that hugo chavez is long dead they say that he tried to flood the united states with cocaine and in spain they wanted the head of military intelligence in venezuela extradited but the judge in the case isn't buying it. i couldn't have hoped for anything different i'm innocent they have always made false accusations against me the truth is i'm very happy with what has happens in this if you don't with the colombian opposition leaders say if a colombian politician wants be seen in a photo with those criminals he will be prosecuted he's the union his military and bloody media and political circles are trying to make the scandal smaller which he's actually huge in venezuela colombia a loss in america. 2 presidents 2 stories and 2 different approaches because. why

europe that have me you know in a sure that there is a distorted image of venezuela in the international media and there is the real venezuela which you can see with your eyes it is a nation that's whatever happens protects itself that it is a nation that whatever happens will protect itself like a family but not a state of the economy has an influence on the political situation because ordinary citizens don't know about that and believe what they hear in the media a media that does not inform us of what manipulates venezuela is and are more than just sanctions it is foreign aggression even it were just sanctions what would be the justification in. a year and rafael i'll go even further if we look at modern history we see what happened to saddam hussein in iraq after the gulf war in 19921901 the un security council imposed economic trade and financial sanctions on iraq and on sudan but later the security council allowed him to get medicine and

1:17 am
a boycott and his writing good quarter picks up the story and. the city of dortmund has reversed its decision to hand a literary awards to british pakistani author kamila shamsie that she plagiarized something commit a crime perhaps now it's all because she supports an anti israel movement called boycott divestment sanctions. the time of the decision none of the jurors knew that kamila shamsie had supported the boycotts divestments and sanctions campaign in the past b.s. aims to isolate israel economically politically and culturally b.d.'s has a presence across much of the globe but in germany it's had a few run ins with the government palestinian women's organization recently sued the city of boston for being excluded from a festival and the court ruled that discrimination based on the organization's belief in b.d.s. was unfair treatment. of freedom of expression includes the freedom to discuss and call for a boycott of campaigns and is also protected by the european convention on human
1:18 am
rights however this case is the exception not the rule the border stock has made it clear they see b.d.s. as an anti sematic movement not just anti israel. the arguments and methods of the boycott divestment and sanctions movement are anti semitic the message of the campaign to boycott israeli activists and goods or i'm innocent of the most terrible period in german history the do not buy a stick is an israeli products bring back associations with the nazi slogan do not buy from jews and similar graffiti in facades and shop windows the law makers concern isn't out of the blue given germany's past but calling the movement nazis could be a bit of a stretch since b.d.'s are mostly left wing activists calling attention to israel's mistreatment of the palestinian people and the german palestinians who are protesting say it's not the palestinians who are doing the oppressing just look at this protest represents the 1st to confront some of german parliament's motion

1:21 am
the u.s. cut all diplomatic ties with cuba and banned all exports and relations reached a late point in 1962 with the cuban missile crisis we asked people in havana and in the us we asked them in both those countries what they think about relations between the 2 countries. it has affected every aspect of our country's economic political and social development that have been 12 u.s. presidents since the blockade started and the situation has not improved because of its location is a constant battleground for american politics from what the u.s. government does not serve its own people it serves money the same financial interests the behind. when a behavior that i'm proud to be a giver stands as an example of how to stand up to how we're. imposing because. what is the purpose of the ongoing u.s. economic blockade of cuba what is the purpose. of history i guess

a rational fear. younger people are naturally very empathetic to the state of the environment what's going on in the world at the moment we're talking about their future of course they perceive this as a real threat to them so i think it's perfectly understandable they're really quite stressed and distressed about this this is a very emotionally healthy response to the music world at the moment and we can't ignore what's going on in the news because the graphic image you are saying are really quite right i would be very concerned to hear that said children's just gestures being medicated away as i said you know their emotional responses make perfect sense in their lives what's going on in the wild so the 1st thing we need to do is listen to them talk to them and help them process these complicated feelings it's really important to tell children the truce and not hide the truth from them but child these things in ways that they can understand don't exaggerate
