warm welcome to the program from all of us here at r t h 2 in moscow thanks for joining us this hour. hundreds have gathered in northern mexico for the 1st funerals of an american family brutally slaughtered by a drug cartel earlier this week it's since been revealed they were killed by weapons that originated in the u.s. and its 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 if mexico 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 a 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 this isn't the weapons that are right
9:03 am
in the united states of america because they are in the united states and the cost of 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 it would be in in really me. the axes are arms or weight some the structure on the snow arm and also on the set of harm 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 is 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
9:04 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 and they're 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 being on the supply side of the things but also on that man and treating these as
9:05 am
the public health issue would be a good idea to start with these 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 mccrone of france has claimed the once robust nato alliance is in terminal decline and is becoming braindead his comments have been dismissed by other members of the bloc. france's 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 for me to even now interest its all security alliance that obviously we have to take our destiny in our own hands but the
9:06 am
transatlantic partnership is absolutely indispensable i agree with the challenge of merkel nato is strong. united states north america and europe we do more together than the done for decades we have implemented the strongest reinforcement so collective defense since the end of the cold war a growing made the remarks in an interview with the economist magazine french president also cast doubt on the reliability of nato as article 5 which requires member states to come to one another's defense if attacked he suggested the deterrent has been undermined by washington's faltering commitment and said 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 being control of our own destiny i believe that very deeply writer and broadcaster jonathan fryer believes the french leader wants to
9:07 am
see a more independent europe. 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 that 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 of asia of the parts of the world but the does need really to be serious thinking about what is nato for. germany has been facing widespread demonstrations from its farmers as they disrupt
9:08 am
transport routes using tractors to block traffic it comes as the industry feels it's being unfairly blamed for climate change or having to bend to berlin's push towards carbon neutral vangelis obsessed has marked. 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 and bond 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 glaive and tighter controls on slurry
9:09 am
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 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 we've being made responsible for every dead insects 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
9:10 am
to blame for climate change or the air or water pollution because go on like this. but on the other corner or the german farmers are accusing the government all failing the environment and putting them out of business if you want the federal government to rethink its crime and goals it's rather take for the action to reduce c o 2 emissions and stead 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 the 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
9:11 am
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 was 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 but burleson is failing them both eventual success for our team despite a history of animosity between north and south korea people in the south would side with north korea in the event of a conflict which upin that's the result of a survey by a think tank in seoul almost half of those asked said they would back peeling an even though there was an option to stay neutral only 15 percent said they were tired tokyo that's my continuous warnings by western allies of the threat posed by north korea. north korea's to 6 test of
9:12 am
a nuclear device and its missile launches 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 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 the survey also comes as relations between south korea and japan are seeing another low with disputes resurfacing over a longstanding controversy is back in 1010 japan turned korea into its colony and fought hard against the independence movement back then japan controlled almost every aspect of life on the peninsula during the 2nd world war japan too heavily on
9:13 am
korea hundreds of thousands of koreans were forced to work in japan where conditions were so bad it's estimated more than 60000 died as a result women from korea were also used as sex slaves by japanese soldiers many koreans believe the treaty signed between the 2 countries in 1965 didn't amend the wrongs that were done human rights attorney eric 0 can believe supposed to pan in the u.s. often paint it dark 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 have somehow attack south korea and i think that this will begin to bear out when these types of surveys and discussions take place and when the moment ministration finally i hope has the ability and the the guts frankly to do what
9:14 am
they say they want to do and that is engaging and build peace and settle the korean war with the north koreans and so i think that japan will continue to fan these flames until the south koreans really put into it by formalizing relations and taking further serious steps toward peace. still to come stress levels are up in the u.s. with people almost as worried about next year's presidential election as they are about terrorism that story and more after the break.
9:15 am
in my i phone i have a 1000 times the capability of the of the computers we had on board the spacecraft at that time i mean it's ridiculous that in my back pocket i have much much more capability than we had for the entire apollo program.
9:16 am
welcome back the united nations general assembly voted overwhelmingly to end america's economic embargo on cuba now lasting for nearly 30 years but the us together with brazil and israel have voted no. you know we had assumed that the president donald trump's government has begun to escalate its aggression against cuba by apply an unconventional measures in order to prevent the supply of fuel to our country. beyond disrupting the economy is to damage a cuban family standards of living with. it it is time for the majority to be heard it unilaterally demands the immediate and definitive and to the chronic and inhuman good case against you but it is time to put an end to double standards in international relations. like all nations we get to choose which countries we trade with this is our sovereign right so it is worrying that the international community
9:17 am
in the name of protecting sovereignty continues to challenge this right. the resolution is not legally binding but it follows a trend of u.s. isolation from the international community here's a look at this month alone on november 1st the general assembly again overwhelmingly approved a draft resolution calling for a middle east free of nuclear weapons the u.s. and israel voted against a couple of days later the organization voted on a draft resolution aimed at preventing an arms race in outer space the u.s. and israel also said no on that as well as on a draft resolution calling for prevention of militarization in space political analyst and former u.n. officer francisco kalani told us what makes washington act this way they're desperate the u.s. . you know what they call it for a crime of i mean. because we haven't built a new world order i mean they are ordered to spatial. or on their own. we are
9:18 am
on their own. but what they have war conflict disorder i mean not only i mean for you and barack obama there was no want your daughter so you know after 4 you know. they said no we're bored or i mean i'm believe a book i'm going to main responsibility lives on use. by us poets reaffirm a constant. privacy. a new poll in the us suggests most are feeling stressed over the upcoming presidential election in fact it worries people almost as much as terrorism or climate change and then being concern is that media is apparently blowing things out of proportion because about nearly 40 percent of people say they have now cut their news 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
9:19 am
disrupt our our system they want to cause doubt in their our state its traditions and our and our leadership donald trump's 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 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
9:20 am
a little bit of stress around an election time that leads to action might be a productive thing according to the poll many americans feel the country is at its lowest ever point they report mixed feelings about the nation's future with less than 4 in 10 believing it's on an upward path dr jean allowed in again says americans are now beginning to understand that the media are skewed in the way they present 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 leave some level of cynicism or negativity with the electorate and some level of stress absolutely and as so you know the media does bear some responsibility on the way that they present the news is good news on that is that americans are very
9:21 am
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. russia says it's ready for further talks on nuclear disarmament but is waiting for the us to respond to its suggestions foreign minister sergey lavrov made the comments at a q. forum on nonproliferation in moscow more than 40 countries are expected to take part but not washington despite being invited notion that reports seems that all the participants all the speakers i heard a good we on the importance of a sincere and productive dollar between the states in order to find common ground but they all confirmed there is a lack of such discussion and they disagree on who is to blame for that russia points to marry saying that after we draw in from the i.m.f.
9:22 am
treaty after rejecting weidman putin's offer to suspend deployment of missiles in europe with the new start treaty that expires next february now in danger and numerous violations of nonproliferation treaty america's behavior threatens global security here is set a goal of refreshers foreign minister. speaking about that. the problems surrounding the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction require special dialogue and we are ready for it however when the main partner here in the united states doesn't give us a comprehensible reaction to anything we suggest it's hard to try and act alone we constantly remind the us of our numerous suggestions and they know it already as well as other countries some have been complaining that today's discussion is not quite balanced since official american representatives are not here although they have been invited and basically they have rejected this invitation so i talked about america's role with un high representative happy or not i have to take it for
9:23 am
granted when they tell me that they still share the global object to fall for a new world free of nuclear weapons but i have to take it for granted i think it's all very important and. you know. with the united states like very much like. regular contact with the rest of the p 5 people china diplomat has also taken part in today's hot debates and he was almost attacked with accusations that thing green an important player when we speak about global security especially given that one of the biggest threats is coming from south asia rejects the dialogue with the u.s. china has never let me repeat china has never rejected the so-called meaningful dialogue with anybody in the u.s. has made this so much noise about having the strand natural negotiations but let me
9:24 am
make it clear so far until now the u.s. has never told us what exactly they want to talk about in this trial that today's gathering here in moscow is a very good chance for participants to prepare for next year is meeting to make it more productive and more effective. lastly some world news in brief a hospital run by doctors without borders has been partially destroyed in yemen no casualties have been reported but all medical activities have been suspended the charity claims it was hit in an aerial attack the saudi led coalition has already blamed 2000 rubbles claiming they fired for ballistic missiles riad has been orchestrating air strikes against the militants in yemen since 2013. a chilean police officer has been arrested over the shooting of 2 students started protests in the capital thousands of demonstrators rallied there against a government plan to tighten public order the measures include a ban on wearing hoods and greater protection for police unrest began in the south

9:27 am
anniversary of the 1st landing on the moon and i've spoken to someone who will actually. take place space tinier apolo 9 rusty shrank aren't. great to have you with us today so going to start with couple questions about apolo 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 a test a new vehicle only in space. the main. danger if you will
9:28 am
we didn't see it as dangerous we had done the simulation this for you know for years so you're ready for anything that can happen 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. 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 no oh well that's
9:29 am
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 other flights as well i mean so that was not new returning to earth from earth orbit but getting back to the command and service module when the lunar module which had never been used before we had to get back 100 miles to a successful rendezvous and docking as if we had come up from the moon so we were basically. testing what later flights would have to do coming up off the moon and that was the 1st time that that had ever been done so that was new but also my so when i went outside that was new to i was the 1st one to use the new apollo suit
9:30 am
had never been used before so it was a test flight of that new suit which worked beautifully and it was also a test flight of the backpack that i used which people use on the moon when you're in space testing all that mazing self and basically laying out the foundation for man to go to the moon. how much depends on you not on your skills and how much depends on the genie's of the person who equipped designed the equipment and the technology that actually brought you there. what it will only say that if i'm performing a concert. a list concerto in carnegie hall certainly a lot of the audience enjoyment will be the list composition but only if i perform it well so it's both the desire.
