internet. hundreds of gathered in northern mexico for the 1st funerals of an american family brutally slaughtered by a drug cartel earlier this week has since been revealed that they were killed by weapons that originated in the united states on a scale of more than 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 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
in the united states of america because they are in the united states and they are from morning to mexico the low as well so that that's very lucky or it their if the united states. or or they went to order they would be in in lima. arm or late from the structure and that's no arm and arm session or harm in concert are now or we're going to be 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 you know with its diction problem with this problem of consumption not just like everything on the supply side of 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 cooperative with next providing. information to do financially televisions in a more proper way and really participating in a. strat. prism are kind of france's claim the one so robust nato alliance is in terminal decline and is becoming braindead but it's called it's a be dismissed by the members of the book. francis or 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 we have to take our destiny in our own hands but the transatlantic
partnership seems absolutely indispensable i agree with the chancellor merkel need to stream. 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. already reacted negatively to microns words of russia says it will not get involved in the disputes and still hopes to find common ground with the military alliance. which took us. once the drug was self into a discussion about the medical side of this issue if micro had got the diagnosis he made of notes it was so evident he had every right to state it we'd like to establish an adequate dialogue with nato and once they to recovers we'll be right then. and michael made those remarks in an interview he gave to the economist magazine the french president cast doubt on the reliability of nato's article 5 which requires member states to come to one of the defense if attacked he suggested
the deterrent has been undermined by washington's faltering commitment and said here it needs to assert itself as a geopolitical 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 see a more independent europe. president mccall seem 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 of 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 that does need really to be serious thinking about what is nato for. germany's been facing widespread demonstrations from as far as they disrupt transport routes using tractors to block traffic becomes industry feels is being unfairly blamed for climate change we're also having to bend to balance push towards carbon neutral venturous obsess has more. 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 put the biggest one in bonn 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 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 what 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 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 because go on like this. but on the other corner are the german farmers are choosing the government all fail . the environment and putting them out of business if you want 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 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 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. as well as a history of animosity between north and south korea people in the south would side with north korea in the event of a conflict with japan that's a result of a survey conducted by think tank and so was half of those asked said they would back pyongyang even though there was an option to stay neutral only 15 percent said they would side with tokyo despite continuous warnings by western allies of the threat posed by north korea. it was curious to 6 test of 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 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 march with less morning 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 acing another load disputes resurfacing over longstanding control over seas back in 1000 turned japan turned career into its colony and fought hard against the independence movement back then japan controlled almost every aspect of life on the peninsula so in the 2nd world war japan drew heavily on korea hundreds of thousands of koreans were forced to work in japan conditions that was so bad it's estimated 60000 died as a result women from korea were also used as sex slaves by japanese soldiers and the koreans believe the treaty signed between the 2 countries in 965 didn't amend wrongs that were done while human rights attorney eric struck kimberly's about japan and the u.s. often paint a dark picture of north-south relations in order 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 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 and build peace and settle the korean war with the north koreans and so i think that 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.
the chinese tech giant huawei has seen a surging global profits while also continuing to squeeze his u.s. rival apple out of the lucrative chinese market despite the us government surface it will bang the company it edges has close ties with the beijing government and intelligence agencies while we see remains confident about the company's future even without the u.s. . when you're poor quite interesting care about the china u.s. trade negotiations we won't be used as a bargaining chip but we can survive very well without the us we don't control the equipment so we have no idea how they operate i don't even know who's monitoring my phone i don't know which country maybe america is easy dropping on my phone calls me back in may washington and it while away to a commerce department entity list that meant the world's number to make of smartphones would not be able to deal with u.s. companies this limited while ways ability to source key parts of particular also the daughter of always founder remains under house arrest in canada as she fights

a result of holloway's 3 ability to deal with u.s. companies since then it's been more problematic for example always soon to release a phone that doesn't even have the official license android version so that is going to limit sales moving forward so what we could be looking at here is a is a peek moment in overseas shipments of its smart phones there's been a bit of a nationalistic spirit in china to. buy way products and more specifically not to buy u.s. products and apple has taken the brunt of that and we know that actually according to recent reports apple's market share has actually dropped significantly in apple is looking at some of its worst couple of quarters in a row here of sales in china that experience to date. clearly not. quite what the u.s. intended there and certainly will apple would have liked but certainly seems to have been so far a benefit for weiwei. you know what you're going to international stay with us for

find themselves worlds apart. she still looks for common ground. $300.00 pages of testimony from the country's top diplomats in ukraine and it bill taylor claims that there was an improper quid pro quo arrangement with kiev he says 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 so media say that it's 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 republicans push back against bill taylor's account though they say despite the ambassador's claims he actually had no 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 information on vice president biden he says he's a good 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 week whereas 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 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 question 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 originally say one thing and amending it on the parents on the strength that he read something in the new york times he would 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 will tell also claims that discussions on financial aid to ukraine were delayed because the top of ministration was distracted by attempts to buy greenland. what do you deduce from that that's our ally is fighting with the russians but all of these agencies that support this
can't go to musing with the president to discuss it it turns out mr chairman that those principles as we call them were in different troops at different times i think this was also the time of the greenland question about the british in greenland which took up a lot of energy in the end and see. that's disturbing for a whole different reason this just tells you how far out of the loop taylor actually was we could afford to do multiple things at the same time 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 is this is crazy that's there isn't just simply not the case. russia says it's certain for further talks on nuclear disarmament but he's waiting for the united states to respond to it suggestions for mr sergey lavrov made the comments at a key for more nonproliferation in moscow on 40 countries are expected to take
power but not washington despite being invited auntie's more if an option has been . seems that all the participants all the speakers i heard a good we on the importance of a sincere and productive dialogue between the states in order to find common ground but they all confirm there is a lack of such discussion hand they disagree on who is to blame for that russia point america saying that we've joined from the i.m.f. treaty after rejecting what my putin's offer to suspend deployment of missiles in the europe with the new start treaty that expire is next february now in danger and following numerous violations of nonproliferation treaty america's behavior threatens global security here is said again lover of russia's 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 you have to take it for granted when they tell me that they still share the global object to fulfill a new world free of nuclear weapons but i have to take it for granted i think it's all very important and we keep you know. with the united states like very much like. regular contact with the rest of the p 5 people particularly china diplomat tez also taking part in today's hot debates and he was almost attacked
with accusations that the gene an important player when we speak about global security spam. surely given that one of the biggest threats is coming from south asia rejects the dialogue with the us china has never let me review china's never rejected the so-called meaningful dialogue with anybody in the us has made the so much noise about having the strand natural negotiations but let me make it clear so far until now the us has never told us what exactly they want to talk about in the straddle dialogue 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. with some of the global headlines for you know a hospital run by doctors without borders that partially destroyed in yemen casualties have been reported but all medical activities have been suspended the
