they're often subjected to very abusive conditions. or broadcasting live direct from our studios in moscow this is r t international i'm sean thomas certainly glad to have you with us all right in one of his latest tweets president trump has commented on the assassination of the iranian general money saying that whether he was an imminent threat to america or not an allegation touted by his administration his fate was predetermined anyway. the fake news media and the democrat potence are working hard to determine whether or not the future touched by terrorists and the money was imminent was my team in agreement the on through to bush is a strong yes but it doesn't really matter because of his horrible post well the
6:02 pm
implications of donald trump statement are quite large essentially it's being argued that for the united states to kill someone not just someone but a top foreign leader a leader of the foreign country top military leader it's not necessary that they actually represent a threat as long as they had a history of bad deeds or a bad past that's essentially what donald trump is saying now folks will recall that it's been about 10 days since qassam solomonic was killed by the united states and sense then the united states has been emphasizing that qassam solomonic was bad that he represented an eminent threat to the united states it seems like he's been getting worse and worse every day since his killing let's review some of what has been said solomon he was plugging. imminent insidious terror attacks on american diplomats and military personnel we had specific emanation information on an imminent threat and those threats trim included attacks on u.s. embassies period full stop i can reveal that i believe it would have been for
6:03 pm
embassies there's no terrorist except osama bin laden who has more american blood on his hands than did customs with the money so why the rising hysteria well ever since the killing many both in the united states and around the world have questioned whether it was the right thing to do many saw it as a hugely unnecessary escalation with the islamic republic of iran a completely unjustified killing of a top foreign leader however the trumpet ministration system that qassam solomonic represented a threat to americans american lives were in danger that was absolutely necessary to do it however even trumps own secretary of defense mark esper doesn't exactly buy that the president didn't say when there was a tangible he didn't cite a specific piece of evidence what he says he probably he believes are you saying that event one i didn't see one with regard to 4 embassies so 10 days later we have trump speaking up on social media and saying that it doesn't really matter whether or not qassam solomonic actually represented a threat to americans because he was
6:04 pm
a bad fellow who had a bad past this is a pretty pretty dramatic statement from the american leader essentially saying that it doesn't matter if american lives were in the balance it was justified to kill the top general of a foreign country simply based on allegations about his history meanwhile iranian state media reported on monday that tehran has officially designated the pentagon and its subsidiaries a terrorist organization president hassan rouhani signed off on changes to existing legislation under which u.s. central command was already blacklisted the amendment had been approved by lawmakers last week the move comes in response to america's killing of general stolen money which infuriated the islamic republic. political analyst hasan ali says in the message iran is sending is that they see the u.s. military as a threat but not the american people. by designating the u.s. and they're gone and sent home and the u.s.
6:05 pm
military as a terrorist organization is essentially make it very clear to the entire world what has been being said by the leaders of iran and of the resistance axis for quite for a long time since the beginning that the problem is not the people of america or the people of any other country not the civilians the problem is the military apparatus and the administration that uses this military as a mercenary force to further. essentially economic and monic objectives so i think in that regard it's actually a very important. signing into law in terms of on the ground i don't think it really will change anything i mean those people who see america for what it is i mean anyone who just wants to understand why the people in the region and free people across the world see america as a terrorist entity. in response to the killing of its a top general iran conducted multiple strikes on u.s.

military bases in iraq last week in the chaos a passenger plane was accidently shot down by tehran on january 8th all 176 people on board perished alongside iran canada is also reeling from the shocking tragedy 57 canadians were among the victims of the tehran plane crash mass vigils have been held across the country with prime minister justin trudeau attending a memorial service in edmonton where there is a large iranian community. and while tehran has acknowledged it's fully responsible for the deadly event the c.e.o. of a canadian food company who says one of his colleagues lost his wife and 11 year old son in the tragedy has lashed out at the united states. a narcissist in washington tears world accompaniments apart destabilizes the region us now and welcome everywhere in the area including iraq tensions escalated to feverish pitch the collateral damage of this irresponsible dangerous ill conceived behavior canadians
6:07 pm
needlessly lost their lives in the crossfire including the family of one of my m.l.f. colleagues his wife an 11 year old son we're mourning and i'm livid human rights lawyer dan kovalchuk of believes washington turning up the temperature in the region was a major contributing factor to the disaster. it is very clear it is the line was found during a time when iran was on high or were it because the us paid just killed their highest ranking military official general somani this was a case where the commanding control. in iran was not working properly and again most likely it wasn't working properly because people were under panic from what happened in iraq with the killing of solomon with found out later this week that the us tried to kill another general in yemen. you know so again
6:08 pm

6:19 pm
through the gratian of sustainable growth and jobs so far so good unless of course you're the one put to work on this great collaboration because the chances are you're forced conscript the african nation has compulsory national service that used to last for 18 months but now sees people trapped in over 20 years it's a practice that's been likened by human rights organizations the un and the european parliament to mass enslavement conscripts compared national service to modern day slavery saying this for torture and other ill treatment which we rest in like basic sanitation and hygiene former conscripts 72 hour weeks and harsh conditions with no food and pay equivalent to $17.00 a month it's one of the main reasons eritrea is called the world's fastest emptying country as young men continue their mass exodus but despite knowing conscripts were being used generally the delicate situation and a country that was a lot in

a guerrilla war for 3 decades the e.u. says that really had no idea that untoward things were going on. the e.u. does not pay for labor under this project the project only covers the procurement of materials and equipment to support the rehabilitation of roads in fact the e.u. doesn't even have an office in eritrea to monitor this ongoing project instead it relies on local authorities the agency is not monitoring the implementation of the project the project is carried out by the government and progress is monitored by the ministry of public works the e.u. is in trusting its project to an arm of the government which is internationally slammed as one of the world's worst human rights abuses which the u.n. describes as authoritarian and repressive and which lived under a u.n. sanctions for 9 years it's almost as if the e.u. has something at stake here other than creating great roads of course like stemming the tide of migrants for example because 2016. 1000 eritreans apply for
6:21 pm
asylum in the block so yes this e.u. project will lift the local economy and bring peace but crucially it will create jobs and that will keep eritreans in the homeland to not crossing on to european shorts. in directly supporting this project by. material to help build the road problem is that what they need to make sure is that any support going to eritrea is not. some mentoring this incredibly repressive system and there are trends and land by the way which happens to be one of the most strategic areas in the world its coast runs along the red sea which is a key link between europe and asia it's also an ideal access point to an african market with low labor costs and it's a natural resource gold mine with gas gold oil zinc you name it eritrea's got
6:22 pm
it eric harris obviously placed in a very strategic location along the red sea it is the access to. see that ethiopia and from the european point of view it is obviously one of the countries which many asylum seekers here in europe are coming from and they're coming and they're fleeing because of the human rights situation so it seems that when you've got something to gain it's easier to be. anonymous than your own employment law. does melba back with more years of top there are those who are too international. as we ponder the future and look into 2020 what fascinating stories will come our way you know i've often said on this show that you can't have capitalism without capital corsicana capital without positive registration kerching people to say and

as of 2013 the pet food industry was dominated by only 5 more titan glamour companies. you know when a consumer walks into a store it's easy to assume that there is a vast array of choices for their dog or cat and the ability to choose that one perfect food. but just how different are these choices and what's really going on inside of those bags is what's inside really as healthy as the shiny side labeling
6:27 pm
would have you believe. to. pay mr sharon back on an integrative veterinarian here in bourbonnais illinois. this is a commercially available raw food diet this is what i am i'm also going to give the boys in a. great 1st approach. is it a time for a dire. time is it. if
6:28 pm
. so there's a problem in the pet food industry and most pet owners aren't aware that there's a problem and unless you have an interest in digging deeper and finding out what those issues are you can go through your whole life eating the exact same food assuming what you're doing is healthier pat and once you start digging the evidence becomes overwhelming that the industry has significant issues. the human animal relationship is deeply embedded in our society. it is estimated that 80000000 dogs are in the united states with 96000000 cats. americans alone spin an estimated $60000000000.00 on pet expenses every year and that number is growing exponentially. it's always a 1st thought the boy something your cat will water something that will make them happy and live a healthy life we give them exercise clean water and lots of love. we've always

purchased food from a grocery store or a pet food store that provided convenience the promise of nutrition in familiarity with the brand. the industry at large survive for nearly 100 years without a single thought from consumers as to what was going into the pet food. that all changed in 2007 when a toxic ingredient made its way into pet foods killing thousands of pets nationwide melamine is used as a fertilizer in asia and also has several industrial commercial uses including a component of kitchen utensils and plates the association between melamine in the kidneys in urine of cats that die and the melamine that was in the food they consume is undeniable additionally melamine is an ingredient that should not be in at food at any level. following the 2007 recall one central question began to
6:30 pm
resonate among consumers. what are dogs and cats actually supposed to eat it's confusing because the pet food industry is telling us what to feed our pets more based on what they want to sell us and what's necessarily good for that that is old bro when phrase about mary and now an author and her new book is called their war yell treatment please welcome dr barbara well good morning they all right thank you so much for being here so let me ask you this what are the things that we're giving them that we shouldn't. and then what should we be given that we are so no corn no wheat no soil after many years of r. and d. we have found that corn is still the best available source of carbohydrates when processed and refined properly those are the things that cause overweight diabetes arthritis chronic skin infections allergies things like that that's the precursor for a lot of that if you're feeding point.
