correct. watching international thanks for joining us. in a rapid escalation of what's already a volatile situation the iranian parliament has designated the u.s. armed forces a terrorist organization in response to the killing of the country's most powerful general that was in a u.s. air raid at baghdad airport in iraq on friday tensions across the middle east have soared as a rainy and demand retribution. those who did this is well as the perpetrators of this crime the killing of general kassim son the money with the pentagon and the military counted as terrorists. the

body of the iranian general has been taken to his hometown for burial huge crowds of mourners are gathering for the funeral reportedly dozens of people have died and hundreds more injured after being crushed in the crowd it's been an outpouring of grief with millions flooding the streets of tehran and the 1st repercussions for washington came from iraqi employees who voted sunday to expel foreign forces from the country for conducting the killing of the soil. if any and foreign ministers accused washington of violating un agreements after he was denied a u.s. visa democrats are still angry with trump for failing to seek congressional approval for his actions in the middle east peace kellam open house details. promise decision to kill iran's top general isn't exactly bringing peace and stability to the middle east as the world is on edge waiting to see how bad the fallout will be democrats have spoken up however the objection of the democrats
9:03 am
isn't that trump killed got some solid money but that he did it without their permission the operation against solo money in iraq was conducted without specific authorization and any advance notification or consultation with congress there is usually a congressional consulting process it's both constitutionally required we see a gradual march to military action directly or indirectly with iran that has not been authorized by congress but they did actually have a chance to stop trump the recent $738000000000.00 defense spending bill could have included amendments that tied trump's hands and mandated he not carry out any attacks against iran. no federal funds may be used for any use of military force in or against iran unless congress has a declared war or be inactive specific statutory authorization for such use of military force if the president wants to attack iran he needs to come to congress
9:04 am
for authorization i proly support this amendment prohibits in the use of any funds for war with iran without congressional authorization and number of progressive voices did speak out but they got outvoted the bill was passed. any member who voted for the national defense authorization act a blank check can't now expressed dismay that trump may have motion of the war in the middle east my amendment which has stripped would have cut off funding for any offensive attack against iran including gates officials like sunday monny now democrats in congress are looking to pass a resolution that would not stop but only limit trump's actions when it comes to iran and no surprise there because in the aftermath of solomon is killing democrats seem to act go trans claim that it was indeed an awful person deserves to be shot down so the money was a murderer responsible for the deaths of thousands including hundreds of americans
9:05 am
general still the money was a violent man. who died a violent death toll money was a bad guy there's no question about that a notorious terrorist no one should shed a tear over his death he deserved to be brought to justice he deserved to be brought to justice for. this seems to be the outlook of the democratic party it's ok to kill the top general of a foreign country and put the country on the brink of war you just have to ask permission 1st they don't sound as much like coolheaded but rather like noxious bureaucrats waving the rule book in trump space demanding proper procedure. we welcome seems to be emanating from the pentagon a letter from a top u.s. general to the iraqi defense ministry suggested american troops were pulling out of baghdad after nearly 17 years donald trump earlier rejected any withdrawal and warned iraq opposed sanctions if baghdad kicks the troops out as the letter started circulating in the media pentagon chiefs dismissed it as
9:06 am
a poorly written draft there's been no decision whatsoever to leave iraq there's no decision to leave nor did we shew any plans to leave or are prepared to leave that letter is a draft it was a mistake it was and signed it should not have been released poorly worded employs withdrawal that is not what's happening we discuss the latest development with the how many u.n. representative at the iraqi based youth organization just for. the united states army and the power i wouldn't find them we don't find them useful in our country in my country we don't find that useful because 1st of all they haven't protected our borders when ice is invaded iraq they haven't protected our economy they haven't protected our oil so if the us one it is clear this this is an act of war and as an act of terrorism iran have the right to to to define the fanatic defined state as a terrorist states big can be counter. act of terrorism because is being committed

in a sovereign country in iraq. nearby civilian to report targeting well both of them were civilian that time because they travel through baghdad international airports we have changed again without change the rules of the game and this is a clear violation of a human right and a clear act of terrorism. you just in the russian president vladimir putin assailed talks with his syrian counterpart bashar al assad in damascus also visited a russian armed forces command point in the country will bring in more detail about putin syria trip as they come. moving on the latest movie by british director guy ritchie's been getting some somewhat less than stellar reviews critics are branding the picture of racist and out of touch the gentleman and so far only been released in 4 countries but the rest of the world to
9:08 am
see it in 2 months time is a quick look at what's been getting people so angry. it's really. every imaginable demographic gets their moment to be targeted and denigrated the only thing the gentleman finds worth celebrating is the bravado masculinity. a less forgivable blast from the past however it is a deuce confort ing strain of racially based humor running through out reach its original script making flat punch lines of multiple asian characters. it's just a shame that guy ritchie falls back on his bad habits casual racism i don't know lynn and lack of female character is problematic but still very entertaining.
9:09 am
and i am being absolutely sincere much rather watch cats than the angry racist masses that is the gentle. we put the issue up for debates with political commentator david johnson social activist lead. this is a sort of bygone break movie a sort of muscular reassertion of the we can say what we like is our country and we don't give a damn what anybody thinks it can tell us about our most foul and disgusting racist language this was a movie gangsters and hey guess what really gangsters don't speak in politically correct balanced way is that snow would gangsters do when we see movies like this is the following day when those racial epithets are repeated on the should treat give cause for concern that. movie makers like guy should have a broader social conscience and responsibility. producing the arjen they do if you
9:10 am
want to see a margin to reassess them then that's fine you go and see it if we go to see a gangster movie you know we're not expecting to. find high philosophy we're not expecting to experienced work culture that's just reality i think is outdated these outmoded and he's not reflecting the kind of future which is of a more inclusive sense of britishness nationalism you know here we are in 2020 and what we're experiencing over this movie is just an early flutter of walk culture of the perpetually offended black panthers one of the most successful movies in the world and it's successful economically for a reason i think i'm not in favor of any artistic ban or any law i do think there should be greater diversity in the production and creative rooms quite amusing that
9:11 am
you just referenced black panther and you went on then to talk about diversity if i recall the black panther movie successfully there wasn't a huge amount of diversity in not so if you want equality and i do then i think we have to have the fundamental right to have all opinions of all sorts heard saying and understood. the political correctness concerns echo the spirit of the previous year as artie's doniphan polls. 2019 was a year of many things it was a year of trump and gretta a year of protests and the year of the insulted getting offended all at once all around the world about all sorts of things militant political correctness brought together the man the human kind of fashion designers wanted people to dress to impress instead some parts of their collections went full on dress to distress

this balaklava like jumper by good she didn't thrill anyone not because of the price tag but because some had a black face problem with it singer kathy perry show a self in the foot with the same gun when she suggested people should shove their feed well into something resembling a black face. 2019 was a year when mediocre male wrestlers realized they can be outstanding female wrestlers never says a word against that is a transfer and i see conferences got cancelled because at a certain age more women than men decide they want to be something else in life than a nerd and saying from personal experience of course. this christmas was unlike any before because only last year did we realize that we in fact have

welcome back taking stock of $29.00 t. next as we reflect on more of the events that mocked last year. 2019 was a year of struggle for truth some apparently looking to hide or censor it social media giants like facebook they came in for particular criticism accused of blocking stories they don't like it while whistle blows accuse the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons of twisting findings to fit the narrative take the alleged 28 team dinner attack in syria blamed on the syrian army but many still question the report of the o.p.c. w r t's as the year of. the new year is a chance to start over to start clean
9:17 am
a chance to reach new heights all well climb back to the old ones you'd fall in off try and rebuild your reputation as is the case with the o.p.c. w. it started off with horrific footage and alleged chemical attack. took a year for the u.p.c. w. to publish its 1st draft open and shut case it seemed found traces of chlorine found strong indications that the containers were dropped from the air we would later learn that a significant part of that year seemingly went to the picking of font that would

make asaad look most guilty the 1st hint came with the leaks report which calculated that the evidence didn't match the catalyst is were very likely placed at the scene observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both cylinders were manually placed. at those 2 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft the whistleblower behind this leak was kicked out of the u.p.c. w. building he wasn't even an employee they claimed we would later learn that he was and they lied but that would happen later 1st another o.p.c. w. whistleblower would strike with very very serious allegations most of the duty and focus he reports on the incident the interim report and the final report was scientifically impoverished procedurally irregular and possibly fraudulent professor richard foulke was there at a conference in brussels where the 2nd whistleblower spoke well essentially he

presented. evidence testimonials to the effect that the report final report could not be justified in the form that it was submitted and that it's been tempered with such a way as to create a set of conclusions that curry spurned with work. the u.s. and britain trends. would be the outcome of an investigation but the evidence didn't support better here's how they manipulated the evidence despite their best efforts they never 1000 to any nerve agent what they did find a traces of chlorine like sounds dangerous right to the uninitiated that again you can find traces of chlorine in your drinking water your cleaning sprays and your

local swimming pool everywhere the difference between a mass chemical attack and someone cleaning their sink is concentration how much chlorine was the text and now guess what the u.p.c. w. decided to emit if the finding of these chemicals at the alleged site is to be used as an indicator. that chlorine gas was present in the atmosphere they should least be shown to be present a level significantly higher than what is present in the environment already but when the analysis of these key levels came back from the laboratories the results we can through sammy beric at unison he was the doom of fact finding missions leader against normal expectations they were not passed on to the inspector who was drafting the o.p.c. w.'s interim report on doom really strange considering that the rebel video which was used as justification to launch cruise missiles at syria clearly showed people suffering symptoms of nerve agent poisoning it didn't even find chlorine in sufficient concentration to indicate a chemical attack it boiled down to 2 explanations either acid used or
9:21 am
a magical gas that is undetectible by modern instruments or the videos was staged after almost 6 months off and lists a geisha as i can prove without a doubt that the duma hospital scene was staged no fatalities occurred in the hospital we got to see the early draft report and juxtaposed with a final one the difference was striking they cherry picked everything that seemed even and big us lee incriminating those struck by how much the redacted version of the report misrepresented the facts many of the facts and observations outlined in the full version on in extra complete interconnected and by selectively emitting certain ones an unintended bias has been introduced into the report undermining its credibility in case there was any doubt about which fact step pick they had identified the american agents come in and lecture the chemists on my ass ad was

guilty they were to take their word for it the inspectors left fair weathers office feeling that the invitation to the americans to address them was unacceptable pressure and a violation of the o.p.c. w.'s declared principles of independence and impartiality 2 days later the interim report was. at least you'd think that management would apologize for this offer some sort of explanation heck even to hand in a resignation or 2 while some of these diverse views continue to circulate in some public discussion forums i would like to reiterate that i stand by the independent professional conclusion basically to hell with the u.p.c. w.'s reputation that hell with generations of chemists and scientists who kept the world free of chemical weapons this is the 21st century's new which could synthesize chemical guilt literally out of thin air.

2090 was also a year of hostility in various forms and degrees from the trade war between washington and beijing to a spate of hate driven terror attacks all round the world last year sort of spike in the number of places of worship being targeted mccarran reports. while 2019 saw fewer terror attacks the us thought a more worrying trend with acts of terror inciting a tit for tat circle of hate 3 months into the year we saw one of the most peaceful countries in the world raise its terror threat level to high for the 1st time in its history. people around the world were left stunned when a 28 year old man unleashed carnage on 2 mosques in christchurch new zealand.
9:24 am
this is one of new zealand's darkest days the appalling attack set the tone for the remainder of the year the question was what could have motivated this surge in olds right leanings the obvious wrong. so to many was donald trump the u.s. president who had taken what some perceived as an anti immigrant stance also a man who had the misfortune to be named in the christ church attack as manifesto making him the perfect target for retribution mr trump your awards not. your policies matter i think the public discourse from the president is a factor in some of these actions our politicians played the blame game a much darker reality was unfolding 9 days after christ church the 1st copycat attack. this time on
9:25 am
a synagogue in california police later found graffiti on the driveway leaving little doubt over whether the attacker had been inspired by the new zealand massacre the po way synagogue shooting took the life of one person and injured 3 others in a chilling echo of the new zealand attack the perpetrator also released a manifesto in which he praised the christchurch terror months later copycat attack number 2. on the 3rd of august 22 people were killed and 24 others injured in a mass shooting at a wal-mart in el paso texas again the attack of released a manifesto revealing how he was inspired by the christ church mosque shootings. days later another one this time on a mosque in norway one person was injured the attacker also attempted to live stream the crime on facebook in a sinister twist the attacker not only praised to the christchurch killer as
9:26 am
a saint but also depicted his fellow copycat attackers as heroes amidst the space of copycat attacks and i s inspired attack in sri lanka. martin luther king jr said i hate begets hate instead of diminishing evil it multiplies it and this maybe this sobering reflection of 29 the word terrorism actually still has no universal definition that every country can agree on and so you can't stop a global scourge if you can't define that in unity so we have to start defining what each of these problems are what each of the intent is even in america some of the shootings that have happened the media has been totally silent about like el
9:27 am
paso and in dayton ohio california it just went off the news after a couple days so we need to be defining what happened here and what's going on what are the ties here and so that way we can really sort of addressing that we need to start being more transparent about it on a global scale so we can start seeing our actual nation leaders working together rather than trying to tear each other apart that's what's going to start to make a change and power the people and really be able to take it back which you know if you do not appreciate company this afternoon gentlemen. the book. good food descriptions sound up to tell using even for the owners so how to choose this pet food industry is telling us what to feed our pets really more based on
9:28 am
what they want to sell us than was necessarily good for the pet turns out that food may not be a sofa the best people believe we have animals that have you know diabetes in arthritis they have auto immune disorders if allergies we are actually creating these problems and it's a huge of a demagogue problems all of them i believe can be linked to a very simple problem of diet and some dog owners so heartbreaking stories about their pets less treats the larger corporations are not very interested in proving or disproving the value of their food because they're already making a $1000000000.00 on it and there's no reason to do that research. what politicians do something to. put themselves on a log they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something i want to. have to do i have to be approached this is what before 3
