ah, blue deadlines in our t, america's big budget priorities, put the pentagon before the pandemic, as president biden signs off on a massive $700000000000.00 defense plan. while washington's global vaccination campaign keeps running out of money. also this, our german politicians call to ban the popular messaging app telegram over hosting hate speech and cable conspiracy theories. however, bosco says that double standards after the german media criticized russia for trying to do the same just a few years ago. and mary leader slammed australia's policy of deporting convicts to new zealand saying, is causing a surgeon, gang related crimes and demands that australia stops treating his country like a dumping ground. it is not good enough. the zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia and just reporting your problem. why does not solve
10:01 am
the problem of gangs and both australia and new zealand. hello, good evening. just gone 6 o'clock here in moscow. you're watching arte international . now, while the global covey pandemic does continue, america has a different priority. the joe biden, now signing a massive $700000000000.00 military budget for the upcoming year, even by america's own estimates. that's a 100 times more than the cost to vaccinating the entire planet is more against the expect. it's bigger than it's better than ever before. america's new military budget, $777700000000.00. so vast board doesn't monstrous. and it's still more enough to say the people who passed it are nations facing many threats right now. sri the paper every day china russia ran and yet
10:02 am
that budget was actually pro provider by the white house. was a cut, pretty dramatic code. if you look at it as and john adjusted for inflation, it is remarkable. these lawmakers they'll, they'll sit there and argue for weeks months about maternity leave, or building roads or bridges will or walls. but the better part of a trillion dollars on a war machine back $88.00 for 11 against passed and the next day that will come to work and to congress and. and they'll wonder where the heck all their money went. i also find it amusing that senator mansion indicates his worry about the deficit after voting justice week for a military budget of $778000000000.04 times greater than build back better over 10 years and $25000000000.00 more than the president requested $778000000000.00. i mean $700000000.00 is
10:03 am
a decimal here. a decimal. where rounding up and down by, by hundreds of millions, 16 times greater than russia's military budget, greater than the next 11 highest military budgets put together. a sudden that the human mind can barely comprehend. somewhat of the extra billions going towards the secretary shall take appropriate action to increase the use of low emission initial fee and net 0 initial energy technologies in the operations programs, projects and activities of the department provided these is cost effective on with ally cycle of the nest and there's also a new ranko position in the u. s. military, according to the n v. a draft bill. and that is gender advisor. so troops can get help if they feel like changing genders. we can only guess how many millions that's going to cost. and of course, none of this would be possible without china and russia because of whom the pentagon argued it needed more money. ginger sandy,
10:04 am
may we firmly oppose the u. s. slipping negative content concerning china or making an issue out of china for political manipulation is not implement negative content and articles in the act that target china and dummy's. chinese interests or hurts overall bilateral ties and cooperation and important areas. while the l g b t, q plus community may let out a sigh of relief, people that have been incarcerated. guantanamo bay innocence included without trial or justice for decades, will just have to wait a little longer. now one thing they didn't find any money for is, is a field doesn't plane tickets to send guantanamo inmates home or to court. unfortunately, he section 1032 of the act continues to borrow the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay detainees to the custody or effective control of certain foreign countries. and section 1033 of the act bars, the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay. detainees into the united states,
10:05 am
unless certain conditions are met. it would cost an estimated $7000000000.00 to vaccinate billions. those who still can't get the vaccine. one percent of america's military budget, just one percent, to potentially hold the development of new strains and variance of coven. but no gender advise us in the electric cars for the pentagon. that's the priority. the more the pentagon spends on insanity, the more military contractors make money, isn't we're not at war with anybody. and why we need a military budget the, his bigger than the next over 10 nations combined. i mean that's, that's nonsense. now if you just ended that military industrial compet use ended this massive military state and let people spend their own money as they see fit. you'd see people spending their money to help people far more effectively than you as a i d ever does. to provide health care for people overseas and not using that money
10:06 am
to hurt people the way the military does the popular messaging app telegram my sing be restricted in germany. i reclaims is not doing enough to combat extremist content and cave it conspiracy theories. but it wasn't all that long ago when jim and media was criticizing russia, the trying to impose similar restrictions as moscow has been quick to point out. when in 2018, russell court imposed restrictions on the telegram app and prevent attended messages, almost savage, and immediately reported about that so called violation of the freedom of speech in russia. but now that political campaign is heating up in germany, guess what? they are targeted with restrictions. telegram, well, it is all rather simple and se telegram in a way it revolutionized messaging and it brought a lot of good to the word to the world and it has changed to things. and it has changed the ways we will text each other, i should say. but of course,
10:07 am
a telegram being one of the least regulated and apps for messaging. there's also another side for this medal it has harboured and has become a haven for all sorts of fringe groups. and while some of those groups might be rather innocent, others are not others or rather harmful. there are all sorts of extremists who are well organizing their there are all sorts of anti vax or movements to which are, well they kind of get all the information or the misinformation, i should say from this messenger. they feed each other with this misinformation and they kind of exist in this little bubble of delusion or that telegram basically allows them, allows them to exist there and to coordinate their black protests actions, demonstrations and so on and so forth. and basically drag and involve more people into the circle of covered dirt misinformation. and this is exactly the problem that germany has with telegram that it allows this sort of people to just exist and well to festa there. and so right now they are accusing telegram of hate speech or they are looking for will legal ways to somehow will influence the company and to
10:08 am
have the company or if they can't influence it, than to take it down altogether. and of course, the german government here, we can all understand it because while harmful societies, they should not be allowed to just really exist on any platform. but basically this is where the hypocrisy bit comes in. because when russia back in 2018, try to do the exactly same thing, the exact same thing to block telegram because there were terrorists and extremists plotting and you know, coordinating their actions there. nobody wanted to listen to russian. they weren't having any of that. germany was outraged, all of europe was outraged. this was their rhetoric. the blocking of telegram is yet another sound development concerning freedom of speech pluralism and the right to privacy in russia. this is the sort of will rhetoric we heard back in 2018. well, compared to what germany is saying right now, we must quickly create a legal option for switching telegram. so it has to be much reaction and from the
10:09 am
german public over this you can see one of the headlines, for example that there are, there are very, very heated debates over world tower targeting. telegram, all sorts or all sorts of that boucher as he of hatred for example. right now those politicians, those german politicians who are calling for a blockage of telegraph or to band the up, they are getting a bit of their own medicine. so now the public and their world politics, political rivals, they kind of fire back and they accuse them of violating free speech. it does not fit in with a free constitutional state to simply switch off digital platforms. this proposal fits into totalitarian regimes but not into our constitutional order. switching off an entire app is a form of state media censorship that we do not want in germany. so there you have it, and it's not the 1st case recently of germany being accused of, well, you know, are not being that dedicated to the freedom of speech. principal r t 's sister channel in german, artie deutsch. it has been banned in germany,
10:10 am
even though it had every legal right to exist there and to well, to appear on the air waves. germany justified the decision by saying that the channel should have, should have received a german broadcasting license. even though there are no legal grounds to do that, we're being told by experts it received a broadcasting license in serbia, which is good enough for the entirety of the you. but germany wasn't having that. and so there have been some accusations of world that germany is not as dedicated to the freedom of speech principal as it may be, wants to appear on the line that he who has done of speaking to me a bit earlier when i also spoke with mattie or dani, a commentator at tech travel geeks, and he thinks that rocking one platform won't stop the spread of extremist content . obviously, telegram the users who and telegram at the moment a shouldn't have too much of an issue. moving to whatsapp apples, i message platform. google's messaging chat platform,
10:11 am
there are loads of different messaging apps and services. and let's not forget, they're also dedicated social media platforms which make it even easier to distribute this type of information or to congregate and discuss these topics. it's also very, very contradictory. we're sometime about 10 years ago in the, in the arab spring, we were celebrating these platforms for enabling uprisings across the mcgray. but in the middle east, it's one of those things that i think is very contradictory. it's fine when it suits you, but then you fight against it when it doesn't. ah, man indigenous leader. he zealand says estrella. he's in his countries a dumping ground, the convicts causing a surge of gang related crimes in oakland. national mary authority, chairman matthew to khaki, thinks the policy is also damaging the spirit of friendship between the 2 nations. it is not good enough. now that new zealand is becoming
10:12 am
a penal colony for australia and, and just deporting your problem away, does not solve the problem of gangs and both australia and new zealand. it is not good enough just to say we're gonna stick a whole lot of people on a plane, on a government charter plane and seen them back to new zealand. that is not the spirit of friendship that you would expect between 2 neighbors. while astray, migration actors say convicts should be deported to their countries of birth even if they've lived in australia for their entire lives and not applied to those sentence to at least a year in prison. the last couple of years have seen hundreds of people sent back to new zealand. healing this to make up one of the largest migrant groups, entering his trailer many to arrive at a young age and grow up there. however, the strategies immigration minister says that government routinely has to remove 4 nationals from a range of countries g to serious offenses. if you to khaki, however, says that it does need to work with new zealand to find
10:13 am
a much better solution. now i wish i did that australian citizens, you know, it's easy just to deport the problem. white and australians want exactly what we want. we want safe communities. we do not want to say drugs being sold to our children. we are sick and tired of saying gun violence on our streets. one possible solution is a joint task force to address a couple of different things. and even though our police forces, they do share information, doctorate intelligence at the moment, it would be good to see if we could just increase and including and beastie and joint resources. that means also having a look at information and intelligence to find out where these drug supplies networks are establishing themselves across southeast asia, even into the pacific. and then let's do that job together as australia and you sealants in that and say experience. it's not
10:14 am
a still to come over the next few minutes. parents shouldn't get to decide what their children learn at school, according to the author of a controversial us anti slavery. project will divide the issue just started a join me every thursday on the alex, simon, sure. and i'll be speaking to guess on the world politics sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm. oh, driven by tremendous shaped banks, concur sent those with
10:15 am
dares sinks, we dare to ask at the end of every year across stock, answer some of your many questions. not surprisingly, many of your questions, concerns politics, the current international situation, and whether we should trust legacy media will do our best to answer as many questions as we can. hello again, that should parents have more say, what their children a tour to school? well, according to nicole, hannah jones, they shouldn't. she's the founder of the controversial $1619.00 project which aims to reframe u. s. history in terms of race and her fees are divisive. i don't really understand this idea that parents should decide what's being taught. i'm not
10:16 am
a professional educator, i don't have a degree in social studies or science. we send our children to school because we want them to be taught by a people who have an expertise at the subject area. and that is not my job. as the parents, i have every right to ensure my child isn't being taught lies despite what nicole 100 jones says, how can this be promoted? cuz she or anyone else to say, parents don't get a say in our children's education. her position is faulty and shouldn't be listened to and must have a platform removed. sorry. but parents must be involved. come on, you pesky parents. just let her indoctrinate your kids in peace. 100 jones launched the 1619 project with the new york times 2 years ago. his goal is to highlight the legacy of slavery and the contributions of black americans throughout us history and content from the project has been included to in school curricula in at least 5 us states. we discussed the issue with the legal ominous jennifer breeding to
10:17 am
master, and also with political activist anthony roaches. right? fortunately in america right now, the political faction is kind of taking over everything else including education. i think that's some of the concern here because really what you're trying to do is refrain retrain children's mind. and that's, that could lead and, and we're seeing this now the rise and anxiety and political issues in children getting younger and younger every year. and i think parents have a right to be concerned about that. the major issue here is that a professor hannah jones is actually talking about the truth and, and that's what's lacking so much in this nation right now. and it's really, really sad that even the most far right wing people in germany can accept the fact that there were nazis that carried out atrocities the fact that this nation was forge and a cauldron of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and lance matching is not alive at the end of the day. this is
10:18 am
a fear of the right from hearing and having to embrace the truth. it's funny that the people on the side, the i are also talking about. also talking about not the germany because not the journey with a, with also the government and the order that the leadership there that started to import this propaganda into the population to say if you agree or you don't, that is what my colleague is saying here. that's what some of these new educational politicians are trying to are trying to impose on children on young children. and all that's going to do is continue dividing the population because one thing has happened from this they, they claim to be the moral high ground. it claims to be the beacon of truth, but all it's doing is dividing. people confuse the children and wanting children to turn against each other. i don't even know what just happened. that was a very interesting soliloquy. again, we're not trying to tear people apart from each other. truth is truth. if truth is going to hurt people that's on, on the people, and what you just heard in this very myopic and silly
10:19 am
a soliloquy is that it's some sort of political motivation. truth just is, is truth. you cannot deny what has happened in this country. what is happening in this country. and you cannot deny that this country was founded in the image and the lens of benefiting white people at the expense of other people. and that's just a fact you can absolutely talk and teach about history and about what's happened in this country. them, the heretic, things of laboring without having to completely de do, is completely unravel the fabric and the foundations of this country's history. but when it comes to truth, migrant, we are so far from when that used to mean it's not a relative term. civilians killed in homes destroyed the in the people impacted by the us led war in afghanistan. i'm more than just numbers throughout the year. he's online project on heard, voices has been sharing some of their life changing experiences will leave you this hour with one of those stories,
10:20 am
a man who spent 3 years in notorious american run prisons abroad. i had to stop telling myself that i am a father that i am a son. i am a husband that i'm a human being, i sorry to call myself i what i had been told that i was and that was my number 558. that was my number in guantanamo room in may. 2002. i was interrogated by the cia and the f. b i and they threatened if i did not cooperate to send me either to egypt or to syria, to be further tortured. either you with us or you were the enemy. there is no in between. and that doctor is still stay on.
10:21 am
i think it's quite clear to me at the united states response to the terrible depths of, of 911 was vengeance. the war on terror is not a police operation. it's a military operation. why they picked on me. it wasn't just me. they picked on everybody. you know, who knows? if anybody's prepared to hand you over to a country to talk to you and you know i live in pakistan is and to be over i. and i'm my parents from pakistan on a deal national. they handed me over to the americans without any legal possible. ah, i was held there for a year in 2002 to 2003 and i saw 2 individuals beaten to death by american soldiers. is east her is play by a whole set of different rules. it's going to force us than your words, the,
10:22 am
get me 30 and master in order and take them on. we'll use all tools at our disposal to do the boys a few bad apples and isolated incidents one by one. the terrorists are learning the meaning of american justice. for me, this place, a pity my, what me and i did, states was doing in afghanistan. they were bringing people to this torture sight afghans ordering africa and abusing them outside of the rule of law. and then allowing some of them to go back home and they would go home and tell people, this is what the americans did. by the time i got to guantanamo, i was begging to go to turn on because what i've seen and witnessed in belgrade was so destructive to this day. i haven't, i can't sleep ah
10:23 am
ah. several of us were sent to one tournament including several taliban members. who now heads of various departments in the act and government were tortured. we were stripped, we were beaten, was spat upon. we were humiliated photographs. this was taken during this period of time. they had a sound, a woman in the next room that led me to believe was my wife being tortured a wave picture of my children front of me and asked, where do you think they are now, what do you think happened to them the night and took your way, and of course what they wanted me to do was to sign a confession that i was a member of our kite, of which i was not. and this was, i'd say, send it, i got it. i think i got it better than a lot of the other prisoners. ah, ah, i
10:24 am
. oh, so this is the handmade calendar that i made when i was in guantanamo. i thought that perhaps if i counted the days that it would be easier. but when the days turn it to weeks and months, and then 2 years, i realized that it was just futile. when i received such letters from my children who are very young at the time, it's actually made it worse to look at the calendar and start the count down the days my children growing up without me. and every day, without them, with a stab in the heart. and they would come sporadically, they had to be vetted uncensored by the us censorship. my daughter who was 6 at the time, wrote a poem, 12345. once i caught official life and they redacted that because they said that has numbers and a numbers could mean some sort of
10:25 am
a code. so it was that kind of nonsensical reduction disconnecting from the idea of being a father. ironically and sadly, but also my own personal faith in my belief in god my reading the koran and again inexpensively becoming friends with several of the american soldiers who would bring me little snippets of inclination sometime next week and chocolate. sometime next week and a dvd player and show me a film deluxe of humanity that i have never forgotten to this day. and i think i left guantanamo not hating america because of those soldiers, me messages directly from some american soldiers who say that this has been a, a war that has destroyed us as individuals. soldiers,
10:26 am
i've spoken to have told me that they cannot sleep at night. so i am in no doubt about the, the effects of this war, not just on the individuals, but on the nation as a whole of whom the soldiers are representative. me has gone to the shop and unity types destroyed. the united states produced a senate to report on torture, but not a single person was ever bought for charges for these kind. recently, i gave evidence the international criminal court for their investigations of abuses by americans, and i forgot to send, they will investigate to the united states, the national army, and the caliber. the only ones who responded by threatening the international court was the united states of america. they said that we will sanction all members of the international court. we will arrest any members of the icpc who come to the usa
10:27 am
or elsewhere the want to investigate us. i think the united states of america needs to step back if it wants to help any of any assistance to the people who understand it's got in a position to negotiate those conditions. it has, it has been an aggressor. the taliban already made gestures to russia to its china, to the wrong, to its pockets dawned with indonesia would be like states and britain in particular . i think that feeling very upset because this is a defeat that's a military defeat. however, you want to look at it and that imperial hubris, as it were, will not allow them to say that we need to move forward and continue within negotiations that we began in doha, that they cannot be any more saber rattling. it's no good for the african people. it's no good background, especially with britain or america. you've really got to find a way for ah,
10:28 am
ah ah mm. one of the worst ever mass shootings in america was in las vegas in 2017. the tragedy exploded a little of the real las vegas, where many se elected officials are controlled by casino owners. the dank is
10:29 am
shooting, revealed wet d, alvi, and p d really is. and now it's part of the stem machine. most of the american public barely remembers that it happens, that just shows you the power of money and las vegas. the powerful showed that true colors when the pandemic hit the most contagious contagion that we've seen in decades. and then you have a mayor who doesn't care to hears care. i goodman, offering the lives of the vegas resinous. to be the control group to the shiny facades conceal a deep indifference to the people vice could have been saved if they were to take an action. absolutely keep the registering and keep the slot machines. dinging vegas as a money machine is a huge cash register that is ran by people who don't care about people's lives being lost. ah, ah
10:30 am
ah. hello and welcome to cross stock where all things are considered. i am peter lavelle at the end of every year across soc answer some of your many questions. not surprisingly, many of your questions, concerns politics, the current international situation, and whether we should trust legacy media. we will do our best to answer as many questions as we can. i cross sucking q and a i'm joined by my guess, glen deason in oslo. he is professor at the university south eastern norway as well as author of the book, great power politics in the 4th industrial revolution and in plymouth. we have patrick hennington. he is the editor and founder of 21st century wire dot com. all right.
