12:01 am
international hundreds have gathered in northern mexico for the 1st funerals of an american family brutally slaughtered by a drug cartel earlier this week the case was quick to print furious reaction from washington with u.s. politicians even offering to send military forces the country to wage war against the cartels and now looks at some of the other solutions that could be on. 9 americans dead 3 women and 6 children hit by mexican drug lords a 13 year old boy who walked 23 miles to get help for the others and now us politicians are willing to run through walls to serve up justice it seems this is the time for mexico with the help of the united states to wage war on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth we merely a way to call from your great new president the mexican government can't protect americans inside of mexico but america may have to take matters into our own hands
12:02 am
this is only 50 miles away from our southern border we can certainly defend american citizens inside of mexico with mexico into mexico was not willing or able to do so is the senator suggesting that the united states send authorities or perhaps even troops into sovereign mexico now the perpetrators of this heinous crime may be subject to a high profile murder trial but are we overlooking something this was a mormon family slaughtered with 223 remington rifles made in america over 200000 firearms are smuggled from the usa to mexico every year this comes at horrific cost to society south of the border and $28000.00 alone the mexican police opened $33000.00 different homicide investigations at a higher rate of homicide than conflict at syria mexican law makes it near impossible for civilians to legally purchase guns in fact there is only one store in mexico that actually sells firearms but yet the mexican drug cartels continue to
12:03 am
get their hands on high tech weaponry that because this isn't the weapons that are right in the united states of america because they are in the united states and. we're going to mexico the lowest though that that's very lucky or in there if the united states. or they went to order they would be in in lima. the axes are arm or leg some the structure on that's the arm and also on the session or harm in front of a prick no or who are going to be by arm it's a hypocrisy in that sense the office of government accountability in the united states has documented that 70 percent of the weapons seized by the mexican police originated in the united states mexican leaders have long urged the usa to crack down on the flow of weapons into their country however attempts to do so so far
12:04 am
have failed for decades here's the thing mexico is certainly dangerous or at least that's the message that donald trump rang out pretty loudly on the campaign trail in 2016 nearly 180000 illegal immigrants with criminal records ordered deported from our country are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens when mexico sends its people to not sending their best to sending people that have lots of problems at their bringing those problems with us . they're bringing drugs they're bringing crime drugs like heroin and cocaine are flowing over the mexican border into the united states however the gangs that are executing people resisting law enforcement and transporting those drugs are armed with guns that originally flowed in the opposite direction the united states has to you know with its diction problem with this problem of consumption not just like
12:05 am
being on the supply side of the things but also on that man and treating these as a public health issue would be a good idea to start with it's also the sales of arms not just that benefiting those businesses that also benefit the economy of the united states and cup orating with next providing information to do financially halogens in a more appropriate way and really participating in an m. and g. money laundering strads. president macron of france says he wants robust nato alliance is in terminal decline describing it as experiencing brain death you also claim to that europe needs to start thinking strategically and assert itself as a geo political power europe is now dealing for the 1st time with an american president who doesn't share our idea of the european project if we don't wake up there's a considerable risk in the long run we would disappear geopolitically or at least
12:06 am
that we will no longer be in control of our own destiny i believe that very deeply well that stark warning there was majoring in interview written in case economist magazine the french president also cast doubt to you on the reliability of nato's article 5 which requires member states to come to one another's defense if attacked he suggested that the terror and has been undermined by washington's faltering commitment to the alliance although not all of my crohn's allies seem to agree. francis for president the french president used rather drastic words to express his views this is not how i see the state of corporation with nato so i don't think that such a sweeping judgment is appropriate meter is in our interest it's all security alliance obviously we have to take our destiny in our own hands but the transatlantic partnership is absolutely indispensable i agree with the chancellor merkel need to strong. united states north america and europe we do want to
12:07 am
get that done they're done for decades we have implemented the strongest reinforcement so close to the front since the end of the cold war however writer and broadcaster jonathan fryer told us that chancellor merkel's remarks don't really help to clarify her position. there is a certain contradiction i suppose in what she was saying in that if europe is going to be more responsible for its own military as well as economic future then obviously that would suggest painting of the link with the united states but on the other hand she was basically urging the americans discreetly not to pull away we have to remember that she's addressing those remarks basically to donald trump who has given several indications that he would really prefer america to be america
12:08 am
1st america alone as far as possible and really has undermined to a degree nato's integrity and indeed is very critical of the european union which he sees as a competitor rather than as a colleague. now despite a history of animosity between north and south korea paper in this i believe they would side with north korea in the event of a conflict with japan at least that's the result of a survey by a think tank in seoul people were asked they would they who they would back in case of war breaks out between north korea and japan almost half of those are said that they would help north korea even though there was an option to stay undecided on the matter only 15 percent said that they would actually side with tokyo this despite continuous remind this by western allies if the threat posed by the no. 6 nuclear device and its missiles launches are
12:09 am
a threat not only to the people of south korea but to the people all across our globe it has never been more important to be working closely together given the shared threat of north korea and north korea has conducted 10 missile tests this year 2 of them involved solid fuel missiles which the north. march with less warning we saw soldiers preparing patriot missiles to shoot down incoming ballistic missiles from north korea the most immediate threat tonight from north korea is far more conventional they could fire on south korea but that survey also comes as relations between south korea and japan saying another.
12:10 am
attorney eric throat can belief that countries often painted a picture of north south relations to fit their own political agenda these outside influences japan in the united states for their own political purposes i think they exaggerate the desire of the north koreans to attack south korea and i think that this will all begin to bear out when these types of surveys and discussions take place and when the ministration finally i hope has the ability and the the guts frankly to do what they say they want to do and that is in gage and peace and settle the korean war with the
12:11 am
koreans and so i think that parent will continue to say on these flames until the south koreans really put into it by formalizing relations and taking further serious steps toward peace. and a growing protests trend across europe germany has been facing widespread demonstrations from its farmers as they disrupt transport routes using tractors to block traffic it does come as the industry feels it's being unfairly blamed for climate change while having to bend to burleys bold moves to become more carbon neutral parties evangelists obsess reports. german farmers are furious but this is not a united front 2 camps are taking aim to the government over its environmental rules for very different reasons although one corner thousands of farmers are causing gridlock in several major cities over environmental measures which they say
12:12 am
are crippling their life the biggest one in bonn hold to the german argued culture ministry were a 10 kilometer convoy brought the city to a halt. a looming ban on the controversial weed killer and tighter controls on slurry and fertilizer are just some of the measures that farmers say will force them out of business germany's lost 16 percent of its farms between the years of 2007 and 2017 a trend that the germans farmers association says is reflected across western europe farmers see the had enough of being labelled as the bad guys in the growing climate
12:13 am
change movement we are not satisfied with the agricultural policy which is being shaped it's a policy that is not based on facts but new requirements are being issued all the time at a rate we simply cannot keep up with we have no chance to adjust our farms in time with the wish list from different n.g.o.s is getting longer and we are getting fed up with the fact that with being made responsible for every dead insects and so on up cheated them we are fed up with this pharma bashing campaign. we simply want to show that we're fed up with being scapegoated for everything is negative we are to blame for climate change or for air water pollution you can't go on like this. but on the other corner are the german farmers are accusing the government of failing the environment and putting them out of business if you want the federal government to rethink its climate goals rather than take further action to reduce c o 2 emissions instead of roadblocks they try taking the legal route the 1st time
12:14 am
the government had been taken to court for failing to protect the environment. he has become clear that climate protection is prosecutable we can end up in court that is how i see it i believe that we should move forward with a positive attitude and i think more action must be taken now. germany's plan was to cut 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and compared with those in 1990 but it has fallen short it only reduced 31 percent but a court in berlin found that the targets were not legally binding undeterred the farmers are digging in on both sides we want to be perceived as people who produce healthy products in harmony with nature and not as the biggest destroyer of nature in germany more needs to be done so the government recognises that it must act now they may be opposites over the impact and solutions of climate change but there's
12:15 am
one thing that they do agree on that bird lyn is failing them both federal law suits us for our team. yes democrats have released $300.00 pages of testimony from the country's top diplomat in ukraine which they say amounts to damning evidence that donald trump committed an impeachable offense the document does detail bill taylor believed there was an improper quid pro quo agreement with kiev he says it was clear to him at least that the release of hundreds of billions of dollars of financial aid would be dependent upon ukraine launching a corruption investigation into potential political rival joe biden. this is a deeply credible knowledgeable person and he belatedly realizes that there is a quid pro quo his testimony has been one of the most important for democrats who say it provides the clearest explanation for what president trump and its allies were demanding at the time this was all going down he texted are we now saying that
12:16 am
security assistance a white house meeting are conditioned on investigations conditioned we talk about quid pro quo condition is a key word there that is what prosecutors call a head shot it is right on point however republicans have pushed back against bill tireless and can't they do say that despite the ambassador claiming to have understood very clearly that there was a quid pro quo he actually had no firsthand knowledge of the alleged arrangement or also admits he had not spoken to the u.s. president and that some of his testimony was based on reporting by the new york times diplomats is due to testify before the house intelligence committee next week where political analysts challenge we're told says that taylor's testimony shows he can't be trusted. the moneyed interests the george soros and other people can arrange for a diplomat like taylor to leave whatever position he had to get a very cushy lifestyle who knows what this guy has been promised who knows what his motivations actually may be but he's betrayed so far show
12:17 am
a horrible judgment coming out originally say one thing then now amending his testimony and amending it on the apparently on the strength that he read something in the new york times he did like the new york times reporting sadly in the last 20 years has become scurrilous there are numerous examples of new york times stories that were puffed up beyond all measure i mean this is really just beyond silly and to suggest with a straight face that the truck white house could not have could not consider his in treaty because they were too busy figuring out how to buy greenland is just a telegraph that this guy is you know as john mccain refer to people he's a whack a bird. some computer savvy stress levels are up in the us and paper almost as worried by elections that as they are by terrorism what happened to the details just out.
12:18 am
imagine being 635 and you have a career and a career involves using your artificial in your computer and things like that in an office. perhaps you sort of things and it's circular. i have to stop doing all this in this poll you look at the minutes must be from my world became smaller and smaller and smaller until i ended up winning it in a box. of very strong magnetic field held in my head. played it like a real hard pressure on my skin burns and that wireless access point out there just continues all day with our students in the schools. we are just continually bathing our citizens in this microwave radiation it is certainly electro small and skilling
12:19 am
worse. welcome back in our new poll in the us jess the majority of adults there feeling stressed by the upcoming presidential elections the survey reveals is having almost as much an impact on their lives as terrorism or climate change or the main reason for the rising levels is believed to be the media blowing things at proportion and because of that nearly 40 percent say that they have taken steps to reduce their news consumption we spoke to psychology expert dr gina loudon who believes a certain level of tension could be a good thing. with the increased attention i think that news media particularly in
12:20 am
the united states has given. the political body i guess you'd say i don't think that that is that notable a certain level of stress around election time can prompt action everyone knows for sure there is going to be an election and elections absolutely have consequences no matter where you live and so if it prompts people to take action founding fathers of the united states would say that might be a good thing and that some stress that leads to action in terms of voting would be a good thing and so sometimes a little bit of stress around election time that leads to action might be a productive thing. some world news in brief now in a hospital run by doctors without borders has been partially destroyed in yemen now casualties are being reported but all medical facilities have been suspended the saudi led coalition has already blamed the rebels the attack saying they fired 4 ballistic missiles that as of demonstrators have rallied in the killing capital

santiago against a government plan to tighten public order measures include a ban on wearing hoods and also promises greater protection for police unrest has begun in the south american country 3 weeks ago over now suspended hike in subway fares that drew into demands for the present resignation and demonstrations to between supporters and opponents of president morales have turned violent in bolivia reporters reports say that several protesters and police officers have been injured here protests and marches have been ongoing in bolivia in response to claims of electoral fraud in the 2019 general election. and meanwhile a financial exodus could be on the cards jeremy corbyn sweeps to victory in the u.k. snap general election to be held on december the 12th the warning has come from the country super rich with their lawyers saying that they could actually bail on britain if the labor party wins next month but. gloams on the whole
12:22 am
more concerned. than about broke that i believe we can realistically expect according government would trigger an exodus of the country's most successful and wealthiest individuals who contribute significantly both directly and indirectly to the british economy lots of high net worth individuals so worried about having to pay much higher taxes somebody wealth and have already prepared for the possibility of a korban government transfers of wealth are already arranged in many cases all that is missing is the signature on the contract. well jeremy called what is seen as a threat by the u.k. so-called elite and wealthy here's why because back in 2017 the opposition leader did plan to impose stricter tax system on higher earners with 45 percent on those earning above $80000.00 pounds and 50 percent for more than $123000.00 pounds right now the 45 percent rate is only applied to income of more than 150000 britain's
12:23 am
prime minister says that corporate reform is would destroy the economy that is. the problem with bolivarian revolution them as practiced by generally called the labor party labor body always runs out of other people's money that's what. it will happen again i live jeremy corbin is the most pressing concern for some right now the case exit from the european union is still lurking around the corner it struck fear into the major companies that were unsure of the economic impact back in 2016 breaks that referendum was dubbed the once in a lifetime opportunity back then and now the labor party seems to be offering something similar this election is a once in a generation chance to transform our country to take on the vested interests holding people back and ensure that no community is left behind well financial
12:24 am
commentator charlie boyle claims that corbin's policies would pose a threat to the british economy. lawyers and people that have businesses that are fairly well off not quite millionaires those are the people that pay the most tax but they've also got large amounts of debt the reason why it were able to service these debts is by low interest rates and a certain amount of tax breaks and regardless of what you think of that that's all going to be counseled out by a lot of jeremy coffin's policies and by the way even if he never gets around to doing any of them just the thought of him winning that election or winning it even if practicality sets in is going to be enough to topple the u.k. economy and possibly the world. you're watching out international just coming up to half past 8 in the morning good to have a company we're back again at the top the. 30

years ago the berlin wall fell the cold war had essentially come to an end the fall of this cold war symbol was heralded as a new spring of nations and the end of communism decades on what is the legacy of this historic event the promises of $989.00 been fulfilled. most people think just stand out in this is this you need to be the 1st one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice or the biggest read in the truth stand this is just the dance the right questions and the right answers. question. today there are good terrorists and bad deadens the bad news in yemen the united states deems to be

12:28 am
oh no welcome to well it's a part of hungary has long positioned itself as an independent player within the european union capable of putting its foot down and standing up to brussels when it comes to pour national interests but when dealing with the trump administration is the organ government equally forthcoming in putting hungry 1st to discuss that i'm now joined by the country's foreign affairs minister. this it's always a pleasure seeing you in russia thank you for your time and your help at the river now judging from your recent interviews one of the most popular words in your vocabulary is hypocrisy involved with almost every time you're asked about hungers relations with china this russia with the e.u. itself is really so prevalent in your line of work. well actually if you look at. politics recently especially during the. of the european parliament elections you will see a big big portion of hypocrisy political correctness and the fortunes of double
12:29 am
standards and the specially when it comes to cooperation with china comes to cooperation with russia and when it comes to internal issues of the european union as well sometimes you do have the feeling that some smaller member states. same things for which some of those got praised you know and this is really something that we have to change that's very vocal. about the future in the union we want to take part in these debates in very actively. again now the last time i heard you mention that when it was in relation to. central and eastern european countries willingness to do business with china and you made the point that bigger countries like germany and france are far ahead in the game and yet for some reason they seem to be rather displeased about other countries to catch up how do you interpret that kind of criticism is a competition is it an effort to control is it something else. making business with
12:30 am
china is pretty beneficial for everyone because the chinese companies are getting stronger and stronger. chinese investors. are. countries. no question about it i mean the old. laws from west to east looking for cheap labor knowledge base all of the changes regarding global economy is dictated by eastern companies as well at least as much as by western companies and if you look at the figures you know figures. the 11. countries have a share of a 9.9 percent 11 countries 9.9 percent when it comes to the china trade and the 5 countries making the biggest business for china.
