u.s. secretary of state. america's. deterrence saying the killing of the uranium general custom so let me was part of an overall approach it will apply for russia and china to. also coming up on the program of as prime minister suggests the us was partly responsible for. a passenger plane last week saying the victims would still be alive were it not for the recent escalation of the. french doctors and hospital workers from administrative duties claiming the government is failing to provide proper funding for the health sector. hospitals have been no strength for several months hospitals and emergency services. police
12:01 pm
chief lee nothing has been the problem. 247 news coming from moscow this is r.t. international a very warm welcome to the program my name is you know only at the line story today the u.s. secretary of state house painted the assassination of iran's top general kassam salomone as part of a bigger campaign deterrence he say's it will also be applied to russia and china. more in this case we had been hearing the term imminent attack in the aftermath of general. assassination there seems to be a new buzzword. indeed mike pompei o the u.s.
12:02 pm
secretary of state seems to be highlighting the term deterrence as the new buzz word defining u.s. foreign policy take a listen to what he said reestablishing deterrence real deterrence military deterrence deterrence is hard to establish an easy to lose. now the killing of a top foreign general by the united states in a different country is considered now to be an act of deterrence intended to deter behavior on the part of the country or entity that was attacked take a listen there's no terrorists except osama bin laden who has more american blood on his hands than did customs of the money but i want to lay this out in context of what we've been trying to do there's a bigger strategy a strategy to this we have reestablished deterrence but we know it's not everlasting that risk remains we are determined not to lose that deterrence in all
12:03 pm
cases we have to do this we have to do this to defend freedom and liberty around the world that's the whole point of president trying to work to make our military the strongest it's ever been and. now the iraqi prime minister he says that solo mining was on a diplomatic mission so was the united states trying to deter him from engaging in peace talks regardless however according to what we've heard solomon is not the only figure who has been targeted in this deterrence campaign by the united states in addition to that we understand that a top figure in yemen has been targeted and was was you know facing similar threats from the united states being considered for attack there was an iranian target who is a financer of the could force has also been singled out and specified in considered as a target in this way but there are other potential targets on the list this new u.s. foreign policy strategy seems to not only apply to iran but according to my palm
12:04 pm
pales remarks it also applies to both russia and china take a listen we not just in iran but in other places too where american deterrence was weak we watch russia's 2014 occupation of the crimea china's island building too in the south china sea and it's brazen attempts to coerce american allies undermine to deter us so this strategy for deterrence includes economic isolation of countries diplomatic isolation economic pressure as well as targeted killing of the foreign citizens so is this the new geopolitics deterrence is the phrase now being used to justify it all but it's for taking us through all of these in new york. you know iran has said it's made arrests in the case of the accidentally done ukrainian passenger plane last week in which all 176 people on board were killed.
12:05 pm
this to our people it is very important in this incident that whoever was at fault or negligent at any level be identified anyone who should be punished must be punished. with tehran admitting its responsibility for the plane crash somehow fall and another part to blame for the incident the us flamed tensions in the persian gulf leading to collateral deaths nowadays the assessment of the russian foreign minister which was also shared by the canadian prime minister justin trudeau. no one can be satisfied with the escalation of tensions in the potion. we cannot move away from the fact that it all started when the us announced that regional troubles resulted from iran's actions the combination of washington's illegal actions were no tensions if there was no escalation recently in the region those canadians would be right now home with their families international community
12:06 pm
is being very very clear both on needing to have a non-nuclear while at the same time managing the tensions in the region that are brought about by us human rights lawyer told me the washington turning up the temperature in the region was a major contributing factor to the disaster. it is very clear it is the plane was found during a time when iran was on higher were because the us has just killed their highest ranking military official gen solomonic this was a case where the command in control. in iran was not working properly and again most likely it wasn't working properly because people were under a panic from what happened in iraq with the killing of solomon with an found out later course this week that the us tried to kill another general in yemen. you know
12:07 pm
so again this was a terrible accident a terrible tragedy. in clearly it happened because of the war tensions created by the trial because the u.s. has decided. a 1st quite some time that international law applies to every country in the world but the united states. ok it's another headline stories today in a sharp rebuke to the french government more than a 1000 doctors and hospital workers have stepped back from their administrative duties they say working conditions in the health sector and gradually worsening due to a lack of funding and chronic stuff shortages taking the pulse on the country's political health or to short of. the moving clued some 600 heads of hospital to parliament and 470 heads of health services and it comes amidst the country's longest running
12:08 pm
strike in decades they say that is the doctors that they could no longer watch over service that is in adequate and threatens patient safety. hospitals have been on strike for several months hospitals and emergency services unions have been sounding the alarm but politically nothing has been done that's the problem from the point of view of medical ethics doctors must treat patients we don't have the necessary resources we've been killing our health care system for the past 20 or 30 years we have completely changed our control system at the moment all decisions are taken up by medics or by administrative staff and manages and that has to change i came here from santa go get humanitarian work so i can tell you that in terms of health care france is becoming like a developing country other issues include a lack of hospital beds for patients and a growing unease it reduced stuffing numbers of hospitals across france now this move will hit some areas of the country more than others in the 2nd largest city
12:09 pm
must say almost 50 heads of departments are quitting their demanding the government comes up with a plan to fix the system for the schools or what we want is for patients to be properly treated at the optimal cost and is the fission plea is possible we're being asked to reduce staff numbers to make savings so it's a never ending cycle to break the cycle who must give hospitals what they need to continue treating people properly we can make budget cuts but for there we need a centralized national plan health is a national problem and we need to invest money into the system the health minister has though defended the government's position she's previously promised an additional $70000000.00 euros in aid include. a monthly risk premium for start the budget that we have announced with 1500000000 or 3 years will allow hospitals to renovate themselves to engage new projects to recruit staff where they're needed
12:10 pm
and open baz where there is need but this hasn't done enough to quell the anger felt by some medical staff so what will this mean for services well they were they will remain doctors offering medical services what they will no longer be is the backbone of the profession these doctors are resigning from essentially management and did ministry 2 roles roles that often receive no extra pay for it means feature hospital projects could be hampered and complaints could go unheard their concerns are adding to the discontent in france for 6 weeks of public transport strike is hit services across the country particularly here in paris though many metro lines are now operating partial services white noise and teaches of also been striking the pension reform plans.
12:11 pm
3 days of mobilization have been called by unions this week in a bid to force the government into retreat i don't ready some objectives have been achieved the french prime minister has provisionally taken an increase in retirement age off the table but for many unions this concession is simply not enough surely auti paris. it's real says' it's not going to a draw criticism leveled at ukraine over the so-called glorification of far right nationalist it comes after the israeli foreign ministry said it was the moral duty
12:12 pm
of the world to condemn the semitism or mideast bureau chief polis leader brings us more. what we're hearing from israel is a message to ukraine that it will not back to of the debate that's taking place in kiev over the glorification of individuals during the 2nd world war now the israelis are concerned that some of those individuals who are being glorified by the ukrainian government are people who were responsible for the mess murder of jews during the holocaust people who murdered jews and paul graham's at the same time people who collaborated with the nazis and also anti semitic ideologists of the radical ukrainian national movement now the ukrainian government has responded by saying that this is an internal matter that deals with ukrainian politics and that any kind of criticisms that are coming from israel are essentially counterproductive but the israeli foreign ministry has said as you correctly pointed out that anything that belittles the memory of the holocaust in which 6000000 jews died is something that israel and its allies around the world have
12:13 pm
both a responsibility and a moral obligation to speak out about preserving the memory of the holocaust the battle against and to semitism including the group for creation of. murders of jews are not an internal matter of any country now the israeli and polish ambassadors made public letters that they blow to the ukrainian government criticizing those individuals that it was glorifying in response the creating an ambassador to israel said that the revival and preservation of the ukrainian national memory was one of the priorities of this government and that it was really up to experts and historians to have the final say in this whole debate central to the whole conversation is the figure. now many in ukraine still glorify him in regard him as a national hero but he was in actual fact the leader of the radical ukrainian national movement and he was accused and found guilty of the mess muhtar of jews
12:14 pm
next week the ukrainian president vladimir who happens to be jewish himself will be here in israel he will be participating in the holocaust commemorations. many and no doubt this issue will again be addressed. swiss tennis star roger federer has funded self in the climate change bob books of teenage activist credit and berg after she criticized his association with the bank credit suisse they financial institution has been investing considerably in the search for a new fossil fuel deposits with more eco shaming has become a crucial part of modern real let's say here's the if a tree. do you know gratitude in burgh by her role as the world's number one a green activist or the number one shaming master well she's really been up to trying to perfect her reputation in both and it's paying off her influences skyrocketing woman of the year in sweden person of the year in the time magazine i
12:15 pm
mean how many teens do you know that told of presidents and prime ministers like that we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and what you can talk about isn't money if tales of economic growth how do you. 6 an example from just a couple of days ago a single read tweet by greg revived a scandal from 20 and made the man they called the greatest tennis player of all times find excuses for being partners with a bank here are the shaming laws she retreated since 2016 credit suisse has provided 57000000000 to companies looking for new fossil fuel deposits something that is utterly incompatible with climate action roger federer do you endorse this and so roger federer sponsorship deal with the swiss lender was back in the news and the sports all round mr nice guy had to reassure the public he cares for the
12:16 pm
environment oh that mighty grow i'll show you more of how her shaming powers. far beyond the famous u.n. walls but it's just that for now not everyone's so sure that anyone who deals with banks which give loans to non green industries should be publicly shamed public shaming and taking the right people to have stare an opinion away i think that sort of stops is being human disgraceful but it doesn't cut it so you want to see it the way he thinks he's allowed to it's a free will say mean and activism to a little well together yes but it can be a discussion that's hard to say well maybe we should celebrities should be a bit more careful in picking this ponces ecological issues should people people's attention but not by publicly shaming an individual however it seems neither gratitude nor her fellow activists have any intention of scaling some of that
12:17 pm
shaming down yeah why do it if it works so well so what can you be shamed for nowadays stay away from anything that has to do with fossil fuels even if you're choosing a bank shame on you if you fly you never heard that was a sin well run has been peddling the flight shame movement on line for a while now why can't you stop flying on planes it's easy. how about you stay home and take some climate action instead climate compensation he's the planting of trees and i have to excuse your flights while some folks of already tried to paralyze a london airport the world's aviation authorities even trying to stand up for its industry. we will launch a very very big to explain what we have done what we're doing and we intend to do in the future activists are currently after german engineering giant siemens for
12:18 pm
going ahead to fulfill a contract with a coal mine in australia what are now coal or fossil fuels altogether aren't legal right it all makes you wonder what's next what you're going to do when grettir comes for you will it get to the point when miners and their families are booed at for what they do for a living just a short while ago we had at least here in germany eco shaming against people with s.u.v.s. and off and on we have it for like people that are taking trips in aircraft seems to be a moving target it seems to go from plastic bags to beef to. the trees to coal mining gets the people are so frustrated they feel they have to do something even if it's almost irrelevant like in the case of siemens right now who's accused of making railway signalling equipment which is being used by the mining company i
12:19 pm
mean that's a pretty. big stretch to go from zeman signalling equipment to say that has something to do with the climate problem and the forest fires a growing army of activists would say the whole of mankind has no other choice but to use some of gratis shaming skills if it once a future that there are still probably many of those who wouldn't mind a little more green tolerance from master to burke and co. testimony as self exile former leader colors put them on their return to spain after potentially receiving i mean i say from arrest as an m.e.p. we've got the details about i'm plenty more besides 90 seconds and i think.
