thanks. for. the headlines this hour mexico holds the 1st funerals for an american family brutally slaughtered by a drug cartel is it revealed they were killed weapons that originated in the u.s. we look at how illegal arms trade is fueling violence also to come president marc roman france lashes out at nato and says it's in terminal decline adding that europe should no longer rely on the u.s. to come to its the fence and korea apparently unites a survey of south koreans that they would rather support the north in the event of a war with japan. hello there 11 am here in moscow you're watching r.t.
international hundreds of it in northern mexico for the 1st funerals of an american family brutally slaughtered by a drug cartel earlier this week it was later revealed that they were killed by weapons that had originated in the u.s. and now reports there's little to restrict the flow of arms over the border. 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 await a 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 this is only 50 miles away from our southern border we can certainly defend american
citizens inside of mexico we have mexico and 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 get their hands on high tech weaponry because the weapons that are right in the
united states of america because they are in the united states and. ordering them to mexico are the lowest so that that's very lucky or it there if the united states . or or they went to order they would be put in in lima. arm or late from the structure and that's no arm and arm session or arm in concert or prick now or who we're going to meet by 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 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 his people to not sending their best to sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems with us. they're bringing in drugs they're bringing in 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 deal with its diction problem with this problem of consumption not just like focusing 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 these also the sales of arms not just like benefiting those businesses that also benefit the economy of the united states and cooperate in with next providing information to do financially teligent in a more appropriate way and really participating in. strad. of the news present macron a friend says that the one trade bust nato alliance is in terminal decline describing it is experiencing brain death his comments were rejected though by other members of the alliance. france's president of 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 for me to that 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 nato is strong. united states north america and europe we do more together than were done for decades we have implemented the strongest reinforcement so collective defense since the end of the cold war. made his remarks in an interview with the u.k.'s economist magazine french president also cast on the reliability of nato as article 5 which requires member states to come to one another's defense if attacked he suggested that the deterrent has been undermined by washington's faltering commitment and also said to that europe needs to 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 that in the long run we would disappear geopolitically or at least that we will no longer be in control of our own destiny i believe that very
deeply right from broadcaster turn from try to tell us that the french leader wants to see a more independent europe but president michael seem to be concerned about in particular was on the disengagement that all of a nazi. from who has made it clear that he would like europe to look after itself militarily much more than is the case the present at the present think it was a little premature in the sense to certainly call nato brain dead but it does need to work out exactly what it's for these days it was founded 40 years ago in principle to oppose what was perceived at the time in holderness residental b.s. but of course that's no longer the case and its operations have spread into of asia other parts of the world but it does need really to be serious thinking about what
is nato for. germany has been facing widespread demonstrations from its pharmacies they disrupt transport really tractors to block traffic does come as the industry feels it's being unfairly blamed for climate change while having to bend to berlin's bold moves to become carbon neutral thank your success has more on the story. 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 causing gridlock in several major cities over environmental measures which they say are crippling their life the biggest one in bonn hold to the german argued cultural ministry were a 10 kilometer convoy brought the city to a halt. a
looming ban on the controversial weed killer glaive 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 change movement we are not satisfied with the agricultural policy which is being shaped it's a policy that is not based on facts 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 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 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 for air water pollution we can't go on like this. but on the other corner are the german farmers are choosing the government of failing the environment and putting them out of business if you want the federal government to rethink its crime and goals rather than take further action to reduce c o 2 emissions instead of road blocks they try taking the legal route the 1st time the government had been taken to court for failing to protect the environment. it has become clear that climate protection is prosecutable we can end up in court that is how i see 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 that 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 one thing that they do agree on that burleson is failing them both federal law suits us for our team. that despite a history of animosity between north and south korea people in the science do believe that they would side with north korea in the event of a conflict with japan at least that is the result of a survey that's been carried out by
a think tank and so almost half of those are said that they would back north korea even though there was an option to to stay neutral and 15 percent said that they would side with tokyo is despite their continuous reminded by western allies that the threat posed by north korea. he was curious to 6 test of a nuclear device and its missile launchers are 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 can launch 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 the survey also comes as
relations between south korea and japan seeing another dispute resurfacing over longstanding controversies. human rights attorney eric said or kimberly's countries often think back to page 2 of north-south relations to fit their own political agenda these outside influences japan and the united states for their own political purposes i think they exaggerate the desire of the north koreans to somehow 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 mood in ministrations finally i hope has the ability and the the good. it's frankly to do what they say they want to do and that is in the piece and settled agree more with the real and so i think parent will continue to stay on this way until the koreans really put into. formalizing relations and taking through serious steps toward peace. us democrats have released $300.00 pages of testimony from the country's top diplomat in ukraine in it bill taylor claims there was an improper quid pro quo arrangement with kiev and he says that the
release of hundreds of millions of dollars of financial aid was dependent upon ukraine launching a corruption investigation into trump's potential political rival joe biden some media say it's a crystal clear sign of president trump's guilt this is a deeply credible knowledgeable person and he belatedly realizes that there is a quid pro quo if testimony has been one of the most important for democrats who say it provides the clearest explanation for president trump and its allies were demanding at the time this was all going down he texted are we now saying that 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 where republicans have pushed back against bill taylor's account they do say that despite the ambassador's claims he actually has no firsthand knowledge if the alleged arrangement. as i understand from one of the maybe the article in the new york times giuliani was interested in getting some
information on vice president biden he says he's going to one client and he's useful to the client and then it's your inference that mr giuliani's goal would be the president's goal yes and your source is the new york times yes so do you have any other source that the president's goal in making this request was anything other than new york times i haven't talked to the president i have no other information from what the president was thinking the muddied interest that 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 horrible judgment coming out saying one thing 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 is john mccain refer to people he's a whack a bird national company here and i think stress levels are up in the u.s. apparently with people almost as worried about next year's presidential election as they are about terrorism but among the stories just after the break. in my iphone i have a 1000 times the capability of the of the computers we have on board the spacecraft at that time i mean it's ridiculous that in my back pocket i have much much more capability to go than we had in the hood and the entire apollo program.
is your media a reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe from. high salacious community. are you going the right way or are you being led. by. what is true what is great. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. aura made in the shallows.
again you with are now a new poll in the us suggests that the majority of adults there a feeling stressed by the upcoming presidential elections in fact the survey reveals is having almost as much an impact on their lives as terrorism or climate change the main reason for the rising stress levels believed to be the media blowing things out of proportion because of that navy 40 percent now say that they have taken steps to reduce their news consumption. in time we're seeing democracy under threat we're seeing state actors try to meddle in us elections this is bad for democracy they want to disrupt our democracy they want to disrupt our our system they want to cause doubt in their arse it's true sions in our and our leadership donald trump circus has ruined our country and our country is all through is like nothing we have ever confronted before as a nation now we can binge watch the end of america with the increased attention i
think that news media particularly in 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 an election time that leads to action might be a productive thing according to the poll many americans do feel the country is at its lowest point in history a huge report mixed feelings about the country's future with less than 40 percent believing that the u.s. is on a path to being stronger but you know live and again says the americans on the beginning
to understand that the media in the way presents information. there's definitely a disproportionate negative coverage of politics in the united states media there's no question of that i think the figure is the high ninety's percentage of coverage in us media is negative and so that isn't surprising that that would lead to some of some level of cynicism or negativity with the electorate and some level of stress. absolutely and it is so you know the media does bear some responsibility on the way that they present the news is good news and that is that americans are very aware of this in ways they didn't used to be americans understand that the media is very skewed and that more than 90 percent of the media in the united states presents the negative side of it so americans kind of know to look for the positive and that's the good side that's the good news if you will. when
a further course of action a group of scientists say that the world is on the brink of an ecological disaster it was accompanied by a petition signed by $11000.00 researchers and academics the stark warning comes in the u.s. space bio science journal its authors claim the report was signed by thousands of researchers and academics in 153 different countries however when people online noticed a number of fictional characters among the signatories it was decided to block the list for further screening however the scientists to highlight increased air travel and rising g.d.p. is troubling signs for the environment in the same time they suggest that people should go vegan and also that measures should be taken to reduce the world's population although not everybody is on board with the suggestions. that's not pro climate it's human the $11000.00
scientists have just proposed a global eugenics program amounts to a massive discrediting of the climate change lobby in the minds of any moral person paying attention thousands of the 11000 scientists were simply people who filled in an online form some students some retired a few checked including one called mouse make you. but we did discuss the issue with a marine biologist who was one of the signatories and also with an economics professor we asked them if anything recommendations made there really can be applied in today's world. why are we going on those 'd leases well i know that she gets about something in some of the governance issues so there is discussion about you know what can government do we employ contacts in do we just simply regulate industries conti's don't and that's where we start to hit those wealthy corporations and those big alleys and big polices as well so we could do it but it would mean
a drastic drop in energy consumption a drastic drop in the standard of living and it's something you could only impose on the more wealthy parts of society rather than own pool regions like africa to shift to sustainable agriculture would mean a drastic drop in yields and a drastic drop in the population we can support so countries that rely upon. agricultural exports. and level of manufacturing they might be able to take care of themselves or they might not be able to sustain the exports the rest of us depend on and stabilization and a reduction in employment population is going to have a huge benefits for climate change and also other problems the happiness balance of things like air water. or to the homes and places of something from water loss and can we now. human health issues societal issues in general we're now going to going to try to reduce the population level of 7 and a half 1000000000 it is incredibly hard to do that it certainly cannot be done
voluntarily it would involve compulsion like china is now defunct one child per family policy possibly even more draconian than that so it's feasible to talk about it but implementing it will take the politics we've done cowardly have it may well take military dictatorships in howard namely education and also tools that are now chris themselves in something that may be beyond close to traditional know that just being a mother and we do see a lot less children be full of it one of the dangers of a cold to reduce population is that it will be seen by people in the 3rd world who with relatively impoverished and have high birth rights in the west those blaming the poll for global warming and so the climate collapse. and that is your new strap for the sat here and don't forget that you can also keep yourself updated on our social media pages and you should check.
today there are good dentists and bad evidence the bad news in yemen the united states deems to be a threat the good to those who work in syria the cia and the u.s. military were engaged in covert actions really throughout the world. where they were assassinating populist leaders they were backing up right away military juntas funding an army of death squads there's no any more because there's always a small. really good. profit. and we're going to fulfill repeated promises ok probably to the people i promise you know we've all pots to. be.
the infrastructure side because there's a government failure number 2 climate change regardless of whether you believe it's happening or not the damage that is going to be applied to your pocketbook that you will pay for climate change whether you believe it or not you know it's still the price is still there. hello welcome to sophie cohen visionaries i'm not saying this year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1st manned landing on the moon and i've spoken to someone who actually take place space pioneer apolo 9 ostinato rusty shrank aren't. great to have you with us today so
going to start with couple questions about a polar 9 this serious anniversary of the mission that was devoted to preparations the flight to the moon but compared to a pole 8 which was all about trajectory and testing to detect jury you guys had to do the real stuff test the equipment you know how that the moguls were working with the docking of the models between each other and and it wouldn't last support for your suits me and the real stuff when you were taking off to that mission how did you estimate the danger i mean basically it's like testing new vico only in space. the. danger if you will we didn't see it was dangerous we had done the simulation. for you know for years so you're. you're ready for anything that can happens or at least you hope you're ready for anything that can happen but the main challenge from the standpoint of danger was that during the mission we would among
other things we would separate the lunar module from the command module by a 100 miles in orbit and of course we would have to get back and dock successfully in order to return to earth because the lunar module while could land on the moon can't land on earth and so to get home we would have to successfully return and dock and. join our he again so that was the sense of danger that's what people saw as being very you know scary but you know for us it wasn't scary we were clearly going to get back you know is your heart racing when you were about to die on earth now oh well that's a different issue that that's after successful you know docking and everything else on the end of the mission then we would return. you know through the atmosphere to earth and that's always exciting but that had happened on a.
