i think the people need to take responsibility in their own and be prepared if those kind of weapons who are less available. we wouldn't have a lot of the shootings and we certainly wouldn't have the number that i do with hope for a new ph off to a decade of ta, moral. dashed in libya, where elections pencils off to war lords began parading round the capital tripoli. more than half of adults and brittany to sketch express their opinions open nape, a fail, phoning victim to council culture. we get reaction on the street london. by living in a coach now of bullying, we used to have a good, good, healthy democracy with country where you could say vague,
then you'd have to all view, okay. people are frightened to always say what they feel in case there's a come back home on moscow found the alarm open. you praying the faith dot minute 3 budget for next year on the presence of a large contingent on foreign forces on ukrainian soil. think of is planning a proof saying with a pm here, and we'll go if you all celebrating a very merry christmas, you will great to have you with us out. but getting us started the hopes of millions of libyans to choose a new direction for that country. have been shorted after elections on friday were cooled off. about decision came off to warn old started parading round the captive tripoli, raising fairs of another civil war, does not equal shauna found reports delaying the vote could sub sat outside and trust this year promised to bring a tectonic change for libya,
a chance to revitalize its political life and hold in election. the 1st one since the whole decade of lawlessness and in fighting. but local militias had their opinion on this whole democracy. not on our watch said a bunch of warlords, as the internationally recognized government fled into hiding. the us is predictably disappointed, almost as of this armed takeover was and led by the personal mob of sala body, a militant, once celebrated armed and funded by the west. when both sides pursued a common goal, we will deny the regime arms cut off at supplies of cash, assist be opposition, and work with other nations to hasten the bay when gadhafi leaves power. the un greenlit nato's bombing campaign and bombs hail down on libya. as per the un
resolution, sorties were meant to protect civilians. as per you and statistics, some 60 people actually perished under nato bombs. and some activists actually believe real figures to be much higher. but they did the job, we can, could duffy forces enough for local militants to finish him off on the ground without any trial. oh, when he came, we saw he died. but the triumph of democracy did not come. instead, libya a once prosperous and promising oil rich nation turned into a lucrative pie up for carving to be split amid goons and warlords. ah ah.
hillary clinton did not laugh any more, as she was watching an american consulate being rushed by a murderous mob, killing the ambassador, i asked myself, how could this happen? how could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city? we helped save from destruction. those libyans who had no, we're to flee, had to survive in this hot mess of the international community's creation for a whole decade. this election, was there a dim light of hope at normality?
miss berlin asked for the elections. i think it's in the interest of the libyan people and libyan state to emerge out of this crisis after years of darkness and to avoid all problems and political disputes in the coming years. then of sarah hash avenue, honestly, the libyan people were disappointed. there are $2800000.00 registered voters, and suddenly they manipulate their feelings and decide to cancel the elections. libyan people reject this principle. they want these elections to stop building a country that embraces everyone in the senate. as in to her, i believe that postponing the elections isn't in the interest of the libyan people . the commission has dashed to hopes of really been people because the delay means more corruption. what does it instead, they got yet another chance to confirm for themselves that right now, whoever has more guns in libya, rules and any sort of western backed leadership will be serving only for as long as the warlords allow it to. obviously, the main culprit is nato,
which destroyed a sovereign nation, the most prosperous nation in africa before the nato bombing. it converted libya into a failed state. the us doesn't care about democracy either at home here. i don't think they care about it and libya, i think what they care about is having a compliant country that will allow the us and other western countries to pillage its resources. i don't think they really care whether they're elections there or not. in the i certainly don't think they want elections that would result in a leader being elected that would protect libby is national sovereignty and resources. ah, well more than half of people in the u. k. are too scared to say what they really think a new poll found that they're worried about being canceled by friends or colleagues or even their own family ortiz. shoddy dashti has the story council culture is
silencing academics, a gagging public figures and wiping celebrities off the face. of the planet. wait, can i really say that? who knows? but i'm not the only one biting my tongue according to you got poll. majority of brain living in fear of will being canceled. the majority of britons 57 percent, say they have at least sometimes found themselves stopping themselves from expressing their political or social views for fear of judgment or negative responses from others. the idea or apartment can be cancelled, or in other words, blocked from having a platform is happening to hundreds with a very similar cycle. you say something offensive receive a public backlash, and suddenly you're gone done a finish cancelled by by. but it's only happening to big names and faces, but people like you and me work online on dates and even at home. i think we're living in a coach now of bullying, bullying in workplaces the government actually. so i think people are
frightened to always say what they feel in case there's a come back on. so the main she made you seem to have one. so a point of view of everything. and so if you say in different, you get what you get caught, or has to think there's a lot of things for the climate, change, covey or whatever. there's no discussion that is the narrative and you of the group or wish cause you, dan has a lot of issues where you fear fred, very careful about what you say, and that's not right now for good debate. and we used to have a good healthy democracy, could have a debate and country where you could say things and then you'd have to all your case and some people just don't want to argue. so i want to hear the argument. i just want to shut you down. so i know you can't tell you that you don't allowed to say that i thought device. i traditional a private apology, atonement forgiveness is no longer enough to warrant if they weren't accountability, social justice boycott. and the more controversial the view on any topic like race,
immigration breck, that the more you should keep your thoughts and your mouth shut most with less progressive views on device of social topics. feel more reluctant to voice their opinion. some say rather than being politically correct, the whole thing has been spelled out of control into a social media merciless mob rule. but i have some from taking the risk of being cancelled. like for instance, j. k. rowling and her auntie trump public position. worse bees. freedom of slavery, ignorance is trans. the meanest individual horrid to you is a woman. well, that wasn't her only comment. there's been plenty more. and as a result, she's been wiped off the face of the up, even by the world. she created the pot to community and the movie production team deleted her from scripts. meanwhile, h b o z 20th anniversary. she was bored. not only that, a number of quidditch leaks task they really do exist announced that they're
rebranding to distance themselves away from j. k. rowling, the tough that's a trans exclusionary radical feminist, but there are others in her potty school of thought. jackie raleigh wrote all the harry potter books by herself, and they canceled her because she said gender was a fact. and then the trans community got mad and they started calling her turf trans, exclusionary radical feminist on tune, turf gender as a fact. well trans employ. he's an allies at netflix stage to walk out forcing the c e o to publicly apologize when you ah meanwhile, team tough relished in the drama. if this is what being cancels is like i love it.
the song continues as monty python star, terry gilliam got cancelled for endorsing char pell's netflix special. shortly after the old vic right here in london, announcer pulling his shirt into the woods from its november schedule. it is very said that a great cultural institution like the old, vague, allowed itself to be intimidated into cancelling our production of into the roots by small group of closed minded humor, averse i. d. o. x on their stuff. my unspeakable crime was recommending my facebook followers to watch netflix special by brilliant and provocative american committed . they lead and civilization didn't collapse. ok, so that's on the most extreme end of the scale. but at the end of the day, how hard is it not to say something that's obviously donning turns out really hard indeed. cancel culture. this cancelling this punishment, it's everywhere. punishment. and i for and i,
you said that therefore you must never work again. sooner or later the counselors will win. oh, british actress of prime time tele more and let been thinks even comedy is now on the verge of being canceled. it's a bit like laughter in church. something has to be forbidden to make you really laugh, to make you belly laugh. it's when you shouldn't be laughing. and so therefore all the things that are being canceled out, or i'm afraid the things that have always made people laugh. so is it time to cancel, cancel culture, because pretending somebody doesn't exist because they've touched a nerve, is a simply slope as let's face it. we've all upset someone somewhere. haven't we? of some local news. why had the russian foreign ministry has accused ukraine of preparing a crusade against its own population until after care of announced a such and military spending unties more account? if reports? well, this is the latest development in, in
a sue of events that have read are lead russia to believe that you create is indeed planning a military solution. an invasion the troublesome for them east and ukraine region, the conflict region, and that they are planning with this latest boost, the military spending 20 percent of the time when ukraine is experiencing difficulties keeping its population warmth this winter. moreover, russia is especially concerned with the thousands and thousands of foreign troops for private military contractors, as well as instructors who are on a permanent basis now stationed in ukraine 10000 and all 4000 of them. american citizens, he dislike. i think that was all this talk of foreign service men being there to participate and quote, measures to insure national security and defense. and another quote to deter russian military aggression is a lie. these instructors are simply engaged in direct incitement and directly
controlling the events that unfolding before our eyes. ukrainian authorities have also made it easier for foreign nationals get ukrainian citizenship, which, which some believe is an effort to circumvent that to bypass the minsk agreements which are called on all sides involved in the conflict in east ukraine. to remove this, harmon, remove foreign fighters from the conflict. so let me putin also speaking earlier regarding the situation in ukraine, said that there is tremendous a tremendous roof, a concern, and that russia truly fears war breaking out in these the new credit to be a number that way, knowing that now they are saying, whoa, whoa, whoa, are impression is that they could be preparing a 3rd military operation and a warning us in advance. don't interfere, don't protect those people. and if you do, then there will be such and such new sanctions. maybe that's what they're planning, or as an inquiry when defense minister shrug who had both previous previous,
he said that there are hundreds of thousands, millions of ethnic russians in ukraine in the conflict so that russia would have no choice but to protect if worst comes to worst they hope, of course the bloodshed can be avoided, the dual sides will return to the negotiation table and the means agreement will be implemented. but side so far are worrying. we had just several days ago from the russian defense ministry that they have information about more than a 100 american citizens who are in the front lot on the front lines in the trenches, in east ukraine, advising and directing ukrainian forces that preparing perhaps even a provocation. with the use of chemical weapons, even we have heard comments from the pentagon in the white house. again, categorically denying those claims. nevertheless, it does go to show how, how hot the situation is, how tense the situation is, how hot passions are, and how much mistrust there is. while still to come this,
join me every thursday on the alex sarlin. sure. i'll be speaking to guess all the world politics. small business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm. ah. so welcome back with the man jewish organizations in belgium of fighting against restrictions on the ritual slaughter of animals which has been banned in the countries to most populous regions. move that's now being challenged in the european court of human rights. the was the greens, he hopes that this quote will,
might reason triumph over this emotionally chose case. the rule of law must not succumb to the growing political and social pressure of populace movements that are waging a battle of symbols against vulnerable minorities across europe. while the restrictions say that animals must 1st be electrically stunned before they're killed and it's argued, the doing so reduces their suffering. but some muslim clark say it's the bitten with both islamic and jewish organizations saying that stoney actually inflicts more paid previously. the european court of human rights rule, but animal well being is a priority. the protection of the welfare of animals is sent him beings, constitutes a legitimate, subjective of general interest, or we heard for on muhammad shall think of the rama down foundation in the u. k. and we also spoke to radio host and columnist john gaunt. they shot the thoughts on this whole controversy. what this is, is another example of. busy attacks against my i naughty committee, in this case,
the muslim a jewish community who was standing united. i'm taking court action against this decision. if you're talking about animal welfare, then you should really be talking about the bo welfare across the board and the european union under european commission and countries in europe, in europe, using this as an excuse to camp down on the individual rights of muslims and jews across europe, but i think it's up to you right, that is challenged through the court system. i don't agree with this analysis on what the british people think. if there was a similar poll just for the united kingdom, it would you, nana mostly know unanimously but by vast majority said that animal should be stunned. first, i think animals deserve to be slaughtered humanely. i understand the religious really reasons why both muslim, well, certain sections of muslim community and the jewish community want to carry on with these barbaric traditions. no religion, whether it's jewish or muslim,
or even christian if it was a similar case, should trump the law of the land and i would love this to be outlawed in britain as well. no religion. from any law, we are all opera operating within the, within the respective laws we live in. i'm so the idea that any religion has a precedent or others is not back to you, correct. and actually in the u. k, we have that established church of england, which, you know, is, is our national faith and we live within the garden. i don't, i don't have and i actually celebrate the fact that we have a strong christian community here in the u. k. need not country. we have a vibrant face as you said, to take this issue, but you know, if you were really concerned about anymore, well, an audio safety then maybe should choose to become a beacon or of a champion and not take it because you are able to stop. i would accept a fully, i'm a me teacher as well. of course, killing an animal, bring some pain,
but if they're stunned, it reduces that. and that's what we need you yourself said the muslim community display on this. the jewish community is as well. mama, if there was a pole to morrow, well both sides could put forward the position, you know, as well as i do, that the overwhelming majority would ban this. because each crew, i've always believed that, you know, we've got to respect faith and within the confines of the law that we live. and i just feel that this is been done in a climate where, you know, fall right. i activism, i'm file right now sweeping across the european union. i'm not to be speaking to mainstream. i'm not saying that this is another indication of thought when you see the jewish community and the muslim community on the same side standing together that shows you. we put a technical issue well, sticking in europe,
regulators in germany, our party ready to flout international treaties in the war on our german sister channel is our tv. no doubt it got its broadcast, license and sub here, which like germany, as part of the european convention of trans frontier television, something balance seems to have forgotten. nic aaron investigates just hours after the launch of ortiz, bronze, new german language channel. you cheap, blocked it, belly a week later. german regulators force european satellite operator, utah sat, who suspended despite all t holding a satellite transmission license in serbia, giving the right to broadcast in germany under a council of europe agreement. yet for germany forties, it's not enough. the unauthorized start broadcasting of the kremlin channel r t d is an undisguised, a front to our current law and well established media policy. anyone who has a broadcasting license in serbia does not have one for the e. you. the program managers know that for sure. then more your take on this,
this regional and local news platform and exclusive cnn affiliate. similar to r t d, this channel broadcasts in be on a license issued elsewhere, in this case, look some book. but unlike r t d, it doesn't have the thumbs up from the european convention on trans frontier television. what it does have is friends in high places. the european found for reconstruction and development, the european commission on the top investment fund, the k. k are headed by disgrace for my c. i a chief and david portray a little bit for it. the tragic irony of portray is the man who took part in the military destruction of serbia in the 90s. now setting up media that have not been lost on observers, more disturbing, still, the man now invested in bringing objective information to the people. in 2010, recruited the 1st army of internet trolls. of course k, k o. ready controls
a large number of internet companies. and there are other things worth a 2nd look like the alleged lack of transparency investigations into k k all have found a lot of goes to offshore companies mushrooming and tax havens and a bit to hide the original owners and find national networks for at least last 6 years, minutes of yours have been exchanged for shares of affiliated companies, more than hundreds of millions of lawns, capital reductions, and increases in the kasia incredible miles and ultimately material payments of capital shares, which are extremely difficult to trace or verify. at the times, levine is telling mag, and service broadband were taken over by us an investment from key r, which controls billions of dollars in assets worldwide. so here we have a 2 channel is the both the channels of big news outlets, both with transmission licenses issued in foreign countries. only one with the knowledge from the european convention on transparency, a television, the other,
the brainchild of some questionable stakeholders. one barely last week, yet the other is celebrating 7 years on the f saying that sometimes it's not what do you know? but who, you know? a must go court. how snapped google with a $98000000.00 fine for failure to remove content. the bond on the national law, it's the largest penalty ever imposed on nice company right here. russia. by the decision of the court, google was found guilty of an administrative offense. a punishment was impose in the form of an administrative fine of 7200000000 roubles. the meantime, facebook has been given a small, a fine, a point, $7000000.00 for the same violation the figures. what based on corporate ton of moscow court found that the to us tech giants failed to delete waste $5000.00 in legal items including violence and extremist content on matter. that's facebook's parent company has given its reaction,
saying the ruling will backfire for russian companies and international. we discussed the story with privacy activist and technology expert and bill new fine of 98000000. this is hardly going to really make, not much of a difference to google. i expect google to possibly provide a number excuses for the problems that it's having. the sheer volume of stuff on the web means that it is a very thankless task. and it has a real difficulty because a there is content appearing all the time. these companies are being expected to moderates a lot of the content. and the moment the organizations like twitter ban on the president of the united states or other people on platforms, we're reaching a point where they are actually making editorial interventions. and is the speeds and the extent to which they're able to make these interventions that is going to
be critical. they need to their results. it's not the game of getting better, but not all the regulators are off to them. there are some regulates, such as the regulator in ireland that appears to be quite complicit with these tech jones. when i bought it from us for this. how thanks for sticking with us. we own always to see you can sin and have a great day. ah, oil and gas manufacturing, electricity, telecom transportation, all of them now have io t type of infrastructure connected to the internet. well, clearly realizing there's disruptive potential for that, those countries can't ignore it because it threatens national security issue. but if we take the nato e u countries, virtually all of them subscribed to certain doctrines and maintains selling but task forces. they are a cyber army on behalf of
a country. that's their job. a wrong i just don't hold any well. yes, to shape out the same becomes the african and engagement. it was the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. i was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 when the doctors told me the cancer was incurable. i knew i had to make a change, so i decided to travel to one of the most toxic places in america. florida. one of florida is the biggest industries and best kept secrets, is fostering one in the biggest layer. it is an $85000000000.00 industry. is mosaic
. tonight, there are reports of millions of gallons of contaminated water now flowing into the florida aqua floor. ne problem, there's a chronic. i don't want to hear that word polish, but that's what it is. i'm in 2013 my uncle, our family dog, my brother, who is 21 years old, myself and my father and we're all guy with a good plan. right? yeah. maybe they'll actually we're, that far hill is more important than ah, with
this is boom. bus the one business, so you can't afford them. it's i'm branch bore and i'm rachel lemons in washington on this very special episode have been boss. we want to take a look at some of the biggest stories we have covered in 2021 on this very show that we bring in some of our favorite gas on the show and go over some of the predictions they have made in how it all hand out, let's not waste any time and dive right in. and we begin this very special boom bus with a topic that continues to grapple the economy, not just the united states, but around the globe. inflation has become word of the year as many went from warning about its approach to watching it become a very serious reality that continues to affect the state of the pandemic recovery . here in the u. s. the federal reserve spent months and months claiming inflation was only transitory, even as it skyrocketed to 30. your heart chairman j.
