welcome is just day here in moscow you're watching r.t. international that hundreds have gathered in northern mexico the 1st funeral of an american family slaughtered by a drug cartel earlier this week it was later revealed that they were killed by weapons that originated in the u.s. and now reports there is 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 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 this is only 50 miles away from our southern border we can certainly defend
4:02 am
american citizens inside of mexico with 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 that because this isn't the weapons that are
4:03 am
right in the united states of america because they are in the united states and the cost for ordering them to mexico are the lowest so that that's very lucky or in there if the united states. or or they went to order they would be in in really me. the axes are armed or late some the structure on the snow arm and also on the session are harmed in concert or prick know or who are going to be by on 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
4:04 am
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 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
4:05 am
being on the supply side of the things but also on that man and treating these as the public health issue would be a good idea to start with it's also the sales of arms not just like 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 proper way and really participating in an m. and g. money laundering strads. person macron of france says that the once robust nato alliance is in terminal decline and is becoming brain dead although his comments have been dismissed by other members. france's president and the french president used rather drastic words to express his view this is not how i see the state of corporation with nato i don't think that such a sweeping judgment is appropriate for me to that is in our interest it's all security alliance that obviously we have to take our destiny in our own hands but
4:06 am
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 we are done for decades we have implemented the strongest reinforcement so close to the furnace since the end of the cold war who made his remarks in an interview with the u.k.'s economist magazine the french president also cast doubt on the reliability of nato is article 5 which requires member states to come to one another's defense if attacked and he suggested that the terror and has been undermined by washington's faltering commitment and also said that europe now needs to assert itself as a geo political. 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
4:07 am
least that we will no longer be in control of our own destiny i believe that very deeply right from broadcasted on from friday told that the french leader wants to see a more independent europe. but president mccall seemed to be concerned about in particular was both the disengagement of the united states under donald trump who has made it clear that he would like europe to look after itself militarily much more than is the case the president 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 as a communist threat from the east but of course that's no longer the case and its operations have spread into other parts of the world but the does need really to be
4:08 am
serious thinking about what is nato for. germany has been facing might spread demonstrations from its farmers as they disrupt transport routes using tract is to block traffic that has come as industry leader is say they are being treated unfairly by being blamed for climate change while having to bend to berlin's bold moves to become carbon neutral and less obsess as 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 'd thousands of farmers calls in gridlock in several major cities over environmental measures which they say are crippling their life put the biggest one in bonn to the german argued culture ministry were a 10 kilometer convoy brought the city to a halt. a
4:09 am
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 change movement we are not satisfied with the agricultural policy which is being shaped it's a policy that is not based on facts hopwood 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
4:10 am
but the wish list from different n.g.o.s is getting longer and we are getting fed up with the fact that we've being made responsible for every dead insect and so on up she didn't come 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 the air or water pollution you can't go on like this . but on the other corner are the german farmers accusing the government all fail. the environment and putting them out of business if you were one of the federal government to rethink its crime and goals it's rather take further action to reduce c o 2 emissions instead of roadblocks they try taking the legal route the 1st time 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 coolant 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
4:11 am
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 on their turds 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 the saudi government recognizes that it must act now and then maybe opposites over the impact and solutions of climate change but there's one thing that they do agree on that bird lynn is failing them both federal law suits us for our team. now despite a history of animosity between north and south korea people in the south believed that they would side with north korea in the event of
4:12 am
a conflict with japan at least that's the result of a survey by a think tank in seoul almost half of those asked said that they would back north korea even though it was an option to stay neutral only 50 percent they would actually side with this despite continuous reminders by western allies of the threat posed by north korea. north koreas 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 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 or the survey also comes at
4:13 am
a time relations between south korea and japan a worsening with longstanding disputes reemerging. human rights to any addicts that opt in told as he believes 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 somehow attack south korea
4:14 am
and i think that this will begin to bear out when these types of surveys and discussions take place and when the mood in ministration finally i hope has the ability and the the guts frankly to do what they say they want to do and that is engaged in the peace and settle the korean war with the grids and so i think japan will continue to fail in these flames until the south koreans really put into it by formalizing relations and taking further 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 key f. and he says that the release of hundreds of millions of dollars of financial aid
4:15 am
was dependent upon ukraine launching a corruption investigation into trump's potential political rival joe biden some media say it is a crystal clear sign of president trump skilled. 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 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 but the republicans have pushed back against bill tireless account they do say that despite the ambassador's claims he actually had no you firsthand knowledge of the alleged arrangement. as i understand from one of the maybe the article in the new york times giuliani was interested in getting some
4:16 am
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 a one thing apparently on the strength that he read something in the new york times even 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
4:17 am
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. so to come this as stress levels are up in the u.s. apparently the people most is worried about next year's presidential election as they are about every reason we'll have a look at why your son. 30
4:18 am
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. again now a new poll in the u.s. and yes the majority of adults there are getting stressed over the upcoming
4:19 am
presidential elections in fact it worries people almost as much as terrorism or climate change and the reason the main reason behind the concern is believed to be the media blowing things out of proportion because of that nearly 40 percent of people now say that they have taken steps to reduce their consumption. at the same 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 the rooms 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
4:20 am
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 but according to the poll many americans do you feel the country is not his lowest point in history they report mixed feelings about the country's future with less than 40 percent believing the u.s. is on the path to being stronger louden again says that americans and i beginning to understand that media is skewed in the way it presents information. there's definitely a disproportionate negative coverage of politics in the united states media
4:21 am
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 leave 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 a good news on 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 ok it's world news brief now a hospital run by doctors without borders has been partially destroyed in yemen no
4:22 am
casualties have been reported but all medical activities have been suspended the society led coalition has already blamed. saying that they fired for ballistic missiles the chilean police officer has been arrested over the shooting of 2 students during protests in the capital santiago versions of demonstrators rallied there against a government plan to tighten public order measures include a ban on wearing hoods and also promises greater protection through police and arrest began south american country 3 weeks ago over and i suspended high can subway says the treatment demands the presence resignation and demonstrations in supporters and opponents of president rallies have turned violent in bolivia reports that several protesters and police something with protests and marches have been going to bolivia in response to its ability for fraud in the 2019 general election. it has been denied by the country's leadership.
4:23 am
now in a further call to action a group of scientists say the world is on the brink of ecological disaster it was accompanied by a petition to signed by $11000.00 researchers and academics with a stark warning comes in the u.s. space by a science journal its authors claim the report got the backing of thousands of scientists in 153 different countries however and people online noticed a number of fictional characters among the signatories it was decided to block the list for further screening all that said the scientists highlighting crease air travel and rising g.d.p. is troubling signs for the environment and at 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 these suggestions that's not pro climate it's anti human the $11000.00
4:24 am
scientists who just proposed the 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 feel doom and online form some students some retired if you checked including one called miles make you hoops we discussed the issue with a marine biologist who was one of the signatories and we're also to an economics professor we asked them if any of the recommendations could be easily adopt it. why are we going on those 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 make the industries come to stuff and that's where we start to hit those wealthy corporations and those big alleys and the big losers as well so we could do it but it would mean a drastic drop in energy consumption
4:25 am
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 but they might not be able to sustain the exports the rest of us depend on and stabilization and the 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 for water loss in the caribbean 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
4:26 am
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 going to increase themselves in something that's moving beyond close to 2 dish alone and 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 is blaming the poll for global warming and so the climate collapse. you're watching the company the softening that's how the news is looking so far today but back again that's what the.

time of the time corporations repeat the same mantra sustainability it's very important it's accelerate the transition to sustainable prize board sustainability stay number may not be more equitable and sustainable world. they claim their production is completely harmless followed. the big. companies want us to feel good about buying their products while the damage is being done far away and this is something else just as he went on even and i mean look. this is the moon and you missed me didn't want anyone and i'm stunned seemed to understand that look who is going to. join me every thursday on the all excitement and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics or those of us i'm showbusiness i'll see of that.
