7:04 pm
spend up to 175 years in prison so essentially this is a life sentence we can leaks editor in chief says it's just not possible that he will receive a fair trial i do believe that we are going to win this with legal arguments there is no chance the julian will get a fair trial here in the u.k. or in the u.s. of course unless there's a change of reporting that people actually start speaking out we're not talking about a prosecution we're talking about a persecution julian a soldier is currently serving a 50 week prison sentence that's because he skipped bail and back in 2012 he's serving that at the high security belmarsh prison now in recent weeks there's been concern for his health he was too ill to appear at a court hearing video that was obtained by artie's rocky knees agency showing a songe inside the prison looking incredibly poor and thin julian

7:06 pm
to him by individuals in sweden were being pursued by the authorities now julian assault has always denied those allegations of sexual assault and said that they were a pretext for moving him to sweden and then to be able to be extradited directly to the usa from there now this all spans form a massive dump of classified military documents that this was provided to the wiki leaks co-founder to the website by a former u.s. private chelsea manning since then the u.s. government has a searing julian a source for the fact that the wiki leaks co-founder on the website published those classified documents which showed alleged war crimes being committed by u.s. soldiers in iraq. u.k. parliament has rejected a motion aimed to preventing the country from leaving the e.u. with no deal in place kate partridge reports from london. basically these are labor
7:07 pm
and tory rebels getting together for a motion to say we want the option the house of commons wants the option to rule out a no deal breaker we want the say on legislation to stop that so a vote was put forward and it came out with 39229811 votes in favor of the government what does all of this mean effectively it's about who controls. exit and the no deal option the opposition was saying effectively the new leader that came in the new leader of the tory party de facto the new prime minister could then effectively say even though we're not going to go through parliament i'm going to take the u.k. out of the asean when i have the power to do that so great for whomever the new leader is coming in and at the moment the current favorite is boris johnson he's always said that he wanted to keep a no deal option on the table as it was a vital renegotiating tool he felt that he had to go back and renegotiate another withdrawal deal with the new he wanted to be able to say to them we can say that we're going to drop out if we don't have
7:08 pm
a deal but in the meantime the you have said well we don't have an appetite to renegotiate anyway but this on the day before has been approved by has been negotiated successfully by the commission and has been approved by all member states and the election of a new prime minister will of course not change the parameters of what is on the table that is no reason they didn't go sheet a deal 3 times it went through parliament it was rejected and the prime minister resigned and that's where we end up in the situation that we are now in that we're looking for a new tory leader and therefore a new prime minister and the problem was originally we're meant to go out on march the 20 not to mention leave the the e.u. looks to us that you can't come up with a deal you haven't agreed to anything will extend it for 7 months there's also elite cabinet memo that's that's come out in the press saying no deal would be an option the country isn't actually ready for it so it's quite an intriguing point it might be a win for the government in the meantime but we still have that tory leadership
7:09 pm
race and there's also the ramifications of is the country actually prepared for a no deal in the 1st place professor of european law told us the labor party's attempt to seize control of the broke that process it seems to have failed is the wrong moment to do it what you don't do if you will the opposition this is a failure of labor strategy or opposition strategy what you don't do. is try and intrude into a leadership contest by daring those in the conservative party to vote against their own. possible leaders so this was not a good mechanism if you like if you want to stop or exit i think there will be more opportunities down the road i don't think the majority is that shifted i just think that context is slightly different and i think things will move on. where clear about who is going to win the contest of the next 2 or 3 weeks at

high level controversy surrounding you tube clearly demonstrate the online universe and freedom of speech are not on the same page the plot from says it wants to ban extremism but it's probably fair to say most would agree on this the problem is how you tube defines this concept. quantitative easing for q.e. 4 is now well under way can't pay for a ponzi scheme no economics matters only in money printing and stock manipulation. what politicians do. you put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go on to be

7:19 pm
a petition calling for italy to drop the charges this however falls under matteo salvini is crackdown they tell interior minister and deputy prime minister is known for his open and strong until migrant use to stop rescue ships that are carrying migrants from docking on italian shores and allowing refugees to disembark it's what he's been after since his appointment last year and he has supporters too it's not as though the talons are to do with our probable cause there is much truth reporting that every year of investigation preceded the arrest including videos witness statements don't develop the picture mrs rescuing people from drowning is b.s. propaganda rescue them and take them to germany it is quite convenient to rescue people and leave them initially greece cetera we have enough migrants we don't. it wants any more sheen able the trafficking of people that's illegal she's responsible for the so-called refugee crisis there is a clear split within the e.u.
7:20 pm
over how to tackle the migrant crisis and while they seat undecided on whether to assist or hinder the flow of migrants into europe captain pierre clem could be losing her battle at sea and on for. more if nationality reporting from germany. although the italian authorities say that that i'm to my current policy is a success rights organization with a live stuff still being put at risk. but imagine your since the start of the year there have been around 2000 rivals by sea using small boats sailing boats rowing boats whatever they have to cross the mediterranean that's compared to 14000 last year. by guns have no say in how or when to leave the traffickers make the decision for them they couldn't care less if the people arrive dead or alive if we do not intervene soon it will be a sea of blood the reason why all dissent than this because there is no agreement
7:21 pm
to that european level for the resettlement of the asylum seekers and therefore easily could have become just the container of all asylum seekers waiting for maybe resettlement in other european countries the 1st thing is to return to the european level then the stablished leaders rules that apply to all member states so the country of 1st arrival we could say doesn't become also and only the only one to receive these people so this this food creates a flow there should be a coordinated approach. but at the moment to europe is not capable of device in any kind of solution. l g b t community has his house at the vatican for his latest guidance the questions the existing principles of gender identity the paper is meant to be a bid to tackle what the catholic institution calls an educational crisis tailor
7:22 pm
delves into the reason for the sudden outrage over rhetoric the vatican has been insisting on for so long. now you'd be forgiven for thinking the catholic church doesn't really know what turns the public on and you'd be right in fact it's just dealt a mosque to class and turning people off the vatican has released a paper which says there are only 2 genders male and female and it's called male and female he created them just so there was no misunderstanding if we wish they can approach to the question of gender theory that is based on the path of dialogue it is vital to bear in mind the distinction between the ideology of gender on the one hand and the whole field of research on gender that the human sciences of one's taken on the other so according to the catholics men are men and women are women and anyone who sees themselves otherwise is provocative and poses a threat to the institution of marriage and seeks to overthrow nature itself on
7:23 pm
a surprisingly it's hit a low note amongst those who are outraged to find that any view one gender theory other than that of course exists by refusing to engage in dialogue with people about their lived experiences or so from a standing in faith the vatican remains in the dark ages promoting a false teaching the law is a myth rumor and false so the paper is not popular partly because it sounds like it's from the time before christ which it is it's filled with quotes from the bible after all because it was released during pride month the 30 days every year the world celebrates the l g b t community bit awkward but wait no where in the paper does it say being gay is sinful and in fact it condemns any discrimination and violence against people. the number of men and women who have deep seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible they must be accepted with respect compassion and sensitivity to resign often just destroy a nation in their regard should be avoided now it's surely not news to outrage
7:24 pm
friends that the church struggles with accepting homosexuality and transgenderism and when they do throw in their 2 pennies worth met the backlash is huge as one bishop in rhode island learned when he decided to share his view on pride month a reminder that catholics should not support or attend t.q. pride month of vance held in june they promote a culture and encouraging that are contrary to catholic faith and morals. it seems the people who replied must of left the christian values of kindness out the door we woke up this morning and we saw the bishop tweet and we were honestly flabbergasted he is like the don't trump of the catholic church goes on twitter and spews out hate my catholic children will be attending pride events as this. always taught me what would jesus do yes i know jesus would be attending that pride parade with also with pride and i also know that god is love and jesus is
7:25 pm
love and love is love the bishop apologized and decided to spread the love but the question begging to be asked is why the surprise kids the church isn't known for being big on reform is it really shocking it's not breaking it's happen it's pun intended. by our top story now president trump has said he's ready to send an extra 1000 american troops to poland redeploying them from elsewhere in europe that announcement came during president 2 years visit to the white house of course live to michael maloof former pentagon security analyst to discuss this further mr maloof great to have you with us the u.s. already has about 4500 troops in poland how much difference will these reinforcements make given that they're non-combat personnel and are simply being moved from germany. it's not much it's all symbolic.
7:26 pm
they're not there permanently they'll be rotated out and replaced with others it's not meant to be a permanent. deployment of any kind and as you point out there are not equipped they're not combat and it's really it's really to boost morale i guess to so show the russians that u.s. and nato means business and but that's that's frivolous and it's also meant to bolster poland and give them some relevancy in that nato defense so what does the u.s. have to gain from this me visit really about security or just well the more of a political gesture as you say. it's i believe it's more of a political gesture a 1000 noncombatant troops doesn't help help matters not to doesn't alter the balance of power in the region at all it's meant to show that poland is relevant just like the united states is is put in. the ballistic missile system in poland
7:27 pm
even though it's been suspended temporarily but the reality is that it's meant to bolster european forces and and morale at a time when nato itself is is not being fully funded and frankly the other members of nato don't have the money to put into nato its dying opponent had asked for a permanent u.s. base and wanted to call it fort trun the question is would such a base that be a violation of the 97 security agreement that bans the permanent basing of nato troops in former warsaw pact countries. it probably would but it probably won't come to pass it's again it's an expenditure of money and given that trump is the president he's going to insist that poland pay for it and i don't
7:28 pm
think poland has the money for it. yes i pretty much my next question is poland is not a poor country but it's well below the e.u. average so can the country really afford to be spending taxpayers' money on u.s. troops f. 35 fighter jets and american natural gas. no absolutely not and this is the problem they're well below their 2 percent g.d.p. goal and i think that it's something that again all symbolic it's meant to show a gesture that we care about the united states cares about europe but it's it's not it doesn't change the balance of power whatsoever in the region. michael maloof former pentagon security analyst thank you for your time. and thank you for watching we're back in 30 minutes with the latest headlines join us then if you can .
