9:01 am
the stories from the past 7 days on right up to the moment well this is the weekly international hello and welcome. is being kicked out of major international sporting events for the next 4 years punishment saves the world. from moscow tampering with a key to test results from russian. this is a russia that protects the rights of russian nazi each but the reentry for major is. able to demonstrate that they are not. you we are not complying what is important thing to this decision. to we are really
9:02 am
sanctioning those who are responsible for this many pollutions and it was so open for those who had nothing to do is. in russia clean. our experts who provided convincing on says unfortunately they haven't heard us resign or has time to appeal initially when we handed over the database we said let's investigate the database together so that we can make a full decision we wanted to have a kind of mechanism if we want some objective decision let's do it like this with saddam has all the necessary opportunities they could have taken a different approach some of the details here of why this is clean up in its will be able to compete on during neutral flying but russian officials are not prohibited from attending major sporting events while the country won't be allowed to host any tournaments. well the list of vents that russia is know being excluded
9:03 am
from its extensive it includes the olympic and paralympic games in tokyo next year football's fee for world cup in qatar 2 years after about russia was the last host of other vent of course and its players will have to play as neutrals if they qualify other events here as well one day is insisting that the onus is on clean players to prove that they haven't doped our sports correspondent alexy our chef he breaks down the ruling for us. it is quite unclear how exactly stripping a nation of its flag in a major sports competitions across the planet can actually solve the problem of fighting against doping you're not on innocent until proven guilty and i'm in school you're guilty until you can prove you're innocent you complete redress justice system on but it's always been that way you've got to think about what's on the world anti-doping agency has jurisdiction but it doesn't at yours dictionary to
9:04 am
the russian authorities become sanction russian politicians and all it can do is sanction resettling and take actions relative to schools so it's come up with this international standard to code compliance by signatories which is used to sanction russia this time round. on top of everything it seems that what his decision from monday was made in such a haste that they have no clue how to actually navigate in that decision the biggest example of that is probably the situation with your way for anthy for tournament's well where you go where you quite expected that. these sanctions will not affect in any way russian part of the upcoming euro are 1st of all it's a continental tournament not of world qualification for or for compartment it. is again within the competence so you have for sure that make it to the 2022 world
9:05 am
cup in qatar it may be stripped of its flag of its anthem and it may be participating as a neutral country. and if you're not yet confused enough they already said directly that should russia appeal to cas the court forbids racial sports and this process takes longer than the official preparation for next summer's olympics russia will go to next summer's olympics in tokyo as a full fledged nation but then if the band is implemented late it might miss out on the 2024 some big games in paris from whichever side you look at it monday's decision by water looks like a vocal and very harsh indictment of russian sports it might send shock waves and reverberations in the country sport for many years to come but it might actually be the beginning of a new struggle of a new battle the legal one when russia takes its case to the court of arbitration for sports in switzerland and we are expecting this to be made quite quickly before
9:06 am
the end of this year this is a punitive action against the law including begin to shoot once. more in just a few. garage if it's not it's particular with there's no evidence of this against them this may be raising a human rights issue whether. they're going to raise this before relation or i'm not entirely certain we have to accept but there is a when we become involved. i think there are actually applying a very big news for more of a motive here there once was in terms of collateral damage to the russian the initial russian roots of expect with great anticipation to see what the. point in essence is doing it's like saying i'm going to come in to get away from you and i'll decide who comes and goes. of course this is all about the athletes themselves and some of the big names in russian sport have been sharing their reactions with
9:07 am
us on the. the doping scandal lasted for a few years i expected something like this after rio. to be honest it was expected it's a pity the athletes have to suffer it's terrible it's terrible for all russian sports that's what i can feel about it. it's just i don't want to make a link between sports and politics but it looks like good for those sanctions imposed by the west for the last few years. someone just wanted to punish our country but this is without reason a country is not a 3 year old child. allow us to compete on that the neutral flag somehow they don't want to see the russian colors. perk maybe our flag is something irritating and someone doesn't want to see us compete in our old flag in our own anthem.
9:08 am
as i visit here i have already hired a lawyer and even if they don't allow me to participate while i'm already a grandmother sports maybe this is our fate was more begin you probably will somehow unite us and give those below to participate and additional boost but it does sell the doping issue i'm sure more than 90 percent of all athletes are clean but i guess but if we are in the. fleet we support you and i'm sure you have enough patience together we will do it. boris johnson's conservative party won a resigning majority now for a dominating performance in britain's historic general election on thursday for the opposition labor liberal democrat parties they're now both seeking new leaders while north of the border the scottish national party all swept the board in terms of seats which has reignited their calls for another independence referendum from
9:09 am
the u.k. here's how the respective party leaders reacted to a dramatic night in westminster as a result. proud to say that members of our new one nation government a people's government will sit tight from constituencies that have never returned a conservative m.p. for 100 years and yes they will have an overwhelming mandate from this election to get it done and we will honor that mandate by general the 31st will not lead the party in any future general election campaign i will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward the stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. is reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer
9:10 am
the people of scotland a choice over their future that monday says that it is for the scottish parliament nort a westminster government to say whether and when this should be a new referendum on independence a quick look at the numbers then there are 650 seats in the house of commons so a party needs 326 to hold a majority the conservatives to call a 365 seats while the labor party got just 203 votes for last result since the 19th 36 taylor breaks up and. thursday saw the 3rd general election in just 4 years so how did we end up on this roller coaster again wost wel my friends it's the usual suspect yeah you guessed it. it works it's too late it turns out that decision taken by those 17400000 people in june 26th exit the e.u.
9:11 am
set off a chain reaction that's led to this moment but i'm guessing ahead of myself let's start from the beginning the british people have made a very clear decision to take a different part of my view we should aim to have a new prime minister in place ok so now we're down one prime minister let's see how the next one fat a couple of weeks later to resume a tick on the and then the ball roll of finding a way through the process that wilderness and she was very clear about her goal bricks it means bricks it rex it means bricks it and where we're going to make a success of the original bricks it deadline was set for march 29th teen oh those early days of optimism but this is possibly the most divisive political issue the u.k. has faced in recent memory m.p.'s have never felt so important all powerful so it's unsurprising that may was thwarted at every turn by those less willing to cut ties
9:12 am
with our european friends fed up she decided to go in and call a snap election in june 2017 we need a general election and we need one now but it was a gamble that just didn't pay off the conservatives lost the majority they'd been counting on tide already me to also taught at this point every single greatest city. your charge of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds but disappointment in the polls was really the least of maize proper. the opposition tried to get rid of her own m.p.'s tried to get rid of her and then she said she'd get rid of herself if only they'd back deal which they didn't and it just ended up being too much for may she decided to finally hang up. i do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country i
9:13 am
love ok so now we're down to prime ministers whose our lucky introducing boris johnson former mayor of london a bit of a gaffe. just like his predecessor he was absolutely adamant that he be the one to get it done can you make a promise today to the british public that you will not go back to brussels and ask for another delay to practice it yes and so you can and would you lying. to his credit he's really gone for it he was sick of parliament blocking his ideas so dissolved that for dissolved so that he went to the e.u. and negotiated a new deal which parliament defeated and then they forced to quest and not the extension which really really really didn't want to do but to do anyway and then he just decided enough so not so wasn't she taunted the opposition party into facing
9:14 am
off at a general election in order to quote get it done which my friends i think brings you up today. we saw some experts and politicians from across the u.k. for their views on the election is results possible consequences as well take a look. now boris can go into a meeting to negotiate and the you can be certain that what's agreed in that meeting will actually get through parliament the big problem that we've had so far is really any suggestion that was made seem to run into this blocking wall in parliament who were determined to vote against just about everything the labor party used to say they were voting against against different solutions what was needed was a general election then they voted against an election as well as a small force i think is the sentiment of the people of scotland the business not based on the views of any one politician this period to the center but the people
9:15 am
of scotland has been moving gradually and no rapidly towards independence but at least an overwhelming view that scotland should have the right to determine its own future that is the chain suck and stance that is the better system will force the a movable object is what has johnson though it may well be that. bought us jobs and put these things out in that they can hold back the floods generally speaking that sort of politics gives out eventually and i would refer my money is on the other system will force as opposed to the a movable object in terms of standing the test of time and of course of the last 2 years the unionist political electoral majority was ended as a result of this election unionist political representation in the north has been reduced to a minority and not quite safe to make and the context not only of the bracks issue
9:16 am
but also with respect to the unfolding constitutional debate and ireland north and so yes still to come although weekly afghanistan sees more violence as the tildes or the scale of the u.s. led military campaigns failure there we delve into the arts into you know mints. it seemed wrong. to shape our. educated and engaged equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground.
9:17 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. dramatic. the only. i'll see you. will be successful very critical of. you sit down and talk. let's bring you back to choose which was when a suicide bomber detonated his car outside one of america's main military outpost in afghanistan the bagram air field the attack came not long after
9:18 am
a surprise thanksgiving visit by president local media reported a powerful blast hitting a medical facility located in the immediate vicinity of the bases main gate the attack reportedly claimed at least one life with as many as 62 others injured initial reports suggested the suicide bomber targeted a u.s. military convoy the washington denies them. during president trump's visit to the base he struck a rather told this by continually being close to or topping the world's most dangerous countries list. with the help of the devotion everyone. has given here tonight america is winning again we are winning like we have not won in a long time and you know what we're respected like we haven't been respected. america is winning again and america is respected again and respected at the
9:19 am
highest level we just heard those words in mind because a revealing news articles appeared in the us which the tales years of deliberate dissent from ation on the part of top american officials who transpires up in putting on a brave face the spider knowing the palatable truth about the afghan war. hundreds of thousands dead trillions of dollars lost generations traumatized but you know what nothing good comes easy nothing in afghanistan we helped liberate an oppressed people. and we will continue helping them secure their country rebuild their society and educate all their children boys and girls. all that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is within reach and we're doing a tremendous job. and as you know a big part of the job is isis certainly the biggest and al qaeda and we. we've got
9:20 am
them down very low numbers you didn't need to be nostradamus or clairvoyant to know that someone was telling bull it's just logical fallacy you can't keep fighting the same guys for 20 years and claim the joule winning but then appearances must be kept up it's important that everyone thinks you're winning right up to the moment you admit you lost why well it's obvious no one has the remotest clue we were trying to do here we didn't have the focus notion of what we were undertaking there is a fundamental gap of understanding of the front end of the stated objectives. in the military and the lack of understanding of the resources necessary and we'd never have known if it hadn't been thousands of secret and classified documents all have got to stop stuff from the white house from the pentagon the un and the
9:21 am
various n.g.o.s well we would have known it's pretty damn obvious that the war is going terribly but who says mouth and all that it is worth considering what the president the deficient said and what they actually believed when i called our troops in action i did so with complete confidence in their courage and skill and tonight. thanks to them. we are winning the war on terror. and. today we lack metrics to know if we are winning or losing the global war on terror are we capturing killing or deterring a dissuading more terrorists every day than the mid russ's on the radical clerics are recruiting training and deploying against us does the us need to fashion a broad integrated plan to stop the next generation of terrorists the us is putting relatively little effort into a long range plan but we are putting a great deal of effort into trying to stop terrorists the cost benefit ratio is
9:22 am
against us see when you're in your 2nd term and you started a really messy war that you just realized you can't hope to win there only so many ways to save your own but here's a list of words you should use courage democracy kids' schools and hospitals and for the people that don't buy your baloney get a hope in there as well thanks to the courage of these military and civilian personnel a nation that was once a safe haven for al qaeda is now a young democracy where boys and girls are going to school new roads and hospitals are being built and people are looking to the future with new hope also poor in money into huge infrastructure projects to obligate money that was appropriated to so we could spend it through building infrastructure in ways that have again instant could never sustain or even the use in some cases if you're a nato country taxpayer i honestly don't believe you can comprehend how much of
9:23 am
your money was poured into this adventure you 1st need to understand the sheer degree of incompetence that these leaked documents show imagine for example someone's putting together a crew for a bank heist they invite a bunch of people give them a time and place and tell no one what their role is no plan so everyone shows up thinking that. everyone outs knows what to do and things go as you would expect now is the time to save your own heidi let's add a few more words difficult days human rights confidence success we will reward good governance work to reduce corruption and support the rights of all afghans men and women alike. there will be difficult days ahead but i am absolutely confident we will succeed. you just cannot
9:24 am
put those amounts of money into a very fragile state in society and not have if you corruption you just can't a legacy of mass corruption that's putting it lightly what else did you expect the guys on the ground they saw disaster they were ported it back to washington washington with its countless departments that now have the courage to stand up and say they screwed up so they put up appearances everyone was doing what made them look best rather than what worked best interesting enough many of the documents were published with the name lessons learned perhaps an effort to extract something anything of value from this unmitigated disaster but you know as it has got a star not long ago and after seeing what i saw there i can tell you all asleep i can guarantee you that while they may have learned their lessons they sure as heck
9:25 am
are putting them to use it's one of the worst things that can happen serving decades in prison for a crime you didn't commit we chronicle one man's horror journey to freedom next is the echols. is you'll be via reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation community. you going the right way or are you being that. direct. what is true what is faith. in
9:26 am
a world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or a made in the shallowness. during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was most of my family were unemployed. and it wasn't it was bed you know much worse objectively isn't today but there was an expectation that things were going to get better. there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america was shaped by the 10 principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduced democracy attack solo doubt engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles according to know on. one set of rules for the rich opposite.
9:27 am
that's what happens when you put her into the hands of a narrow sector of will switch will is dedicated to increasing power for chills just as you'd expect one of the. most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to. have to go right to the press that's what the 4 korean war can be good for. i'm interested always in the waters of our. question.
