just days after. striking the u.s. . among the. generals. after his twenty year sentence for war crimes. the french president calls for military action against human trafficking but critics of the move say he has to intervene in a country which has not yet recovered from the destruction inflicted by the nato led intervention of twenty eleven.
summary of the biggest stories. of the past week bringing you up to date on more recent developments north korea says that the u.s. is begging for nuclear war the statement comes just days after pyongyang launched that experts say demonstrates significant technological progress washington strongly condemned the test and issued a stern threat to the north leadership. the dictator of north korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war not farther from it if four cards make no mistake the north korean regime will be utterly destroyed little rocket man rocket fuel for the americans because. he is a sick puppy. a korean crisis entered a new stage with the north ballistic missile test as is widely believed pyongyang is now capable of hitting the us mainland according to both north and south korea
the missile reached an altitude of four and a half thousand kilometers before landing in the sea of japan that's more than ten times higher than the orbit of the international space station following the tests south korea then carried out its own missile launch. because. it took place close to the border with the north russian foreign minister sergei lavrov however says solves drills could provoke. when you believe. we are not accepting north korea's claims that they possess nuclear weapons we are supporting all the u.n. security council resolutions and abiding by all sanctions against pyongyang however the u.s. military drills near north korea a deliberate provocation of kim yong moon so on the one hand we are condemning pyongyang's nuclear gamble but on the other we condemning the provocative behavior of our american colleagues. because of the valdai discussion club in seoul this
week and he's been looking at the various ways countries have been trying to solve the crisis on the peninsula. what has been donald trump's approach to sorting out the north korea crisis in a nutshell all options remain on the table second option not a preferred option they will be met with fire and fury do not underestimate us and do not try this the distance from here to the border with north korea is only about forty kilometers and once you end up in seoul which is well in the firing range of kim's artillery you can't help looking at that rhetoric from a different perspective especially if there is what you'd call a totally different approach. is absolutely no alternative to dialogue but in order to start a dialogue everyone has to stop take a deep breath and a step back from the red line which will my stop so russia's been saying hey we've
got a plan step one north korea should completely halt its missile and nuclear tests for the u.s. that means and ends to almost nonstop war games with seoul moscow calls it a double freeze step two might be very tough direct talks between washington and pyongyang on rules of peaceful coexistence and finally they should lead to step three establishing a security framework for the entire region with every player involved what do you think about the russian road map i think that the proposal is really realistic flexible i hope you. and your cage in the olympics or two parties concerned between you could you could be too nelson so. come up with the most at risk behavior do you think it's enough in this case of course not enough in the day should be some new initiative to move. the tsunami and donald trump keeps
saying that all options are on the table north korean knew that the military option the job. always under the table. by putting the military option and on the table. it's not like we change you know screen behavior as the advisor to the south korean president what do you tell them about the drills you know you know i personally in a favor engagement dialogue and negotiation with north korea and some people in the government may have different ideas that brings us to why the russian road map may never actually work. because i think most korean politicians believe the trills must be pursued tried to fence now we're not canceling us korean exercises we just want to postpone for the olympics. others openly reject moscow's plan like the neighbors in tokyo who simply can't imagine security without the drills with their
allies so for now south koreans have no other choice but to welcome us raptors in co for the vigilance ace rule games. anyway for those who live in seoul or who are here to talk about keeping the peace in korea there's something to bear in mind be it for war games or real strikes that would put millions of lives at risk the decision to send let's say warplanes to the korean skies may depend on one single man miles and miles away on the other side of the pacific. the regional co-founder of lawyers for peace and to militarize ation says the current situation with north korea is on the edge of full on conflict. at a time in which there is this standoff and this misunderstanding and lack of communication creates a very volatile situation it may be seem somehow as intimidating but these have
never worked the proposal that anyone who cares about peace in the region is putting forth right now is that these military options are not realistic and you need to sit down at the table and when they do those exercises something could be mistaken as invasion something could be mistaken as live attacks and such and so we put the millions and millions of people in the sole area in south korea in japan and other places at risk this seems like folly and foolishness when we have such a volatile situation. former bosnian croat general who fought in the bosnian war in the early one nine hundred ninety s. committed suicide during a un court session of the hague on wednesday his trial was part of the yugoslav war crimes tribunal after losing his a pale he produced a bottle of poison and drank from it in front of the judge we're going to show you video of what happened so please be warned that it does contain distressing images
from. here. still. don't. look. for all who. have taken poison. former bosnian croat military commanders slow but i'm probably was convicted of war crimes and given twenty years for his role in the conflict in the former yugoslavia before the war he was a theater and film director. the yugoslav was the bloodiest conflicts in european history since the second world war tensions between a complex mix of nationalities forming the state of yugoslavia erupted into a bit civil war originate yugoslavia included six republics with different nationalities and religious groups.
the communist revolutionary and statesman tito who established the federal republic of yugoslavia managed to suppress nationalism but after his death in the one nine hundred eighty s. relations among the republics quickly deteriorated with each of them seeking their own independence is soon turned ugly old sides the nine hundred ninety five genocide in tripper needs it is one of the bloodiest pages in yugoslav history the massacre of more than eight thousand muslim both the acts perpetrated by units of the bosnian serb army resulted in their commander ratko manage being jailed for life by the un special court in november twenty seventh. but atrocities happened on all sides in one thousand nine hundred three sixty nine serbian civilians were killed by bosnia and herzegovina army forces in the scale on a massacre with an orthodox church in a cemetery burn to the ground. over all despite much evidence of war crimes
conducted similar tenuously by different forces the cia eventually declared said militants were responsible for ninety percent of all crimes including genocide. tonights they took those into action against yugoslavia it is indeed tragic that diplomacy has failed and nato is now intervening in a war in a sovereign country. and eventual nato air campaign conducted a number of operations to undermine the military coup. validity of that was the incident army. to this day the un special court is still investigating war crime cases from the conflict a total of one hundred sixty one people have been indicted for war crimes in the former yugoslavia since the tribunal began as you heard atrocities were committed by all sides party to the conflict but longer sentences have been given to serbians and montenegrins counting up the total time of those jail terms serbian authorities
suggest nearly one of the half thousand years were given to internationals that's in contrast to three hundred for croats and just fifty years for the other former yugoslavian republics however the un court has never investigated nato involvement in the war including the use of depleted uranium munitions some of the cases have been so lengthy that several defendants have died while on trial of the hague the editor in chief of the news website the duran dot com says the tribunal setup was flawed from the very start and major criticism of the tribunals is that it is not being impartial it was set up in the in in the one nine hundred ninety s. humanely at the instigation of the western powers out at a time when the western powers were criticizing serbia and its government and the people the serbian people of bosnia for the war in bosnia now that is a problematic steps because when the same people instigate the
setting up of the tribunals after they have already identified who they think is responsible for a war it becomes very difficult to expect that tribunals to act impartially. huge crowds rallied in tel aviv on saturday calling on the israeli prime minister to resign over corruption allegations. so-called march of shame was triggered by a controversial drop which would prevent police from publishing their findings on to criminal investigations into any been at you know as well as making recommendations to prosecutors an estimated twenty thousand people attended the protest many held up signs reading shame and prime minister netanyahu for his part has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing but protesters say they intend to keep up the
pressure until he's forced from office. i think the time has come for a change of government the government is corrupt we're sick of the corruption. we have a corrupt government that needs to be brought down as quickly as possible the prime minister and all of his crown is along with him. to defend democracy and the rule of floor to build a more equal and just society for ruan. the israeli prime minister is under investigation in two separate corruption cases and one he's accused of receiving bribes from wealthy businessmen and in the other he's suspected of reaching a deal with a newspaper in order to secure favorable coverage let's go live now to i mean all in a senior correspondent columnist for israel's hearts newspaper welcome back to r.t. and the critics then say this draft law is an attempt by netanyahu to stop the findings of an investigation against him from coming out how do you see it is this a cover up or could there be genuine reasons to keep this out of the public domain
. no there are no genuine reasons to keep it for accommodations by the police through the prescription from the public knowledge whatever do you police requirements may not necessarily mean that the prosecution or eventually did turn in general and then the courts will be here to do is recommend their chins but if the. it is important for the public to be aware of what the police having collected all the evidence and waited what day think and if they think that the there is no case that's fine too but it is incumbent on the police to let the prosecution and the public know what their findings are now obviously it's a transparent move by netanyahu and his political cronies to shield him from public pressure it will not have any impact on the attorney general but his coalition
partners for the time being would refrain from putting pressure on him to resign the public reacted emotionally it was a popular sentiment had nothing to do with coalition and opposition right versus left secular jews versus author jews. was a real sentiment coming from the crowd and having witnessed it firsthand i can vouch for it the city among those thousands that we saw in tel aviv on saturday night is their anger directed solely at what's happening around benjamin netanyahu or it's why did it satisfaction transparency and alleged corruption in the government in general. this is an unprecedented turn of events in israeli history there where corruption scandals and corruption inquiries including against incumbents serving prime ministers and
dodgers throughout the years but never have these politicians try to use their office their control of the legislator to pass legislation we personally benefit them and therefore having endured for the last year these reports of corruption the public voiced its disgust at the naked. manner in which netanyahu and his allies are now trying to subvert democracy. is this public pressure enough to force the government to withdraw this trough then and to back off from it. it may indeed have the intended impact because netanyahu and his party control only you thirty seats in the one hundred twenty seat knesset which means that they need another thirty plus seats of various partners in order to rule some of these calls.
now bowing to public pressure drove support from this legislation in which case it will not pass and we have already found out this morning that indeed the reason to be late one week now de de heyst in the legislature was because the police is supposed to meet their accommodations any day now and what i wanted to do was to have this bill and act again to low before the police comes ahead and apparently he is now losing the race against the police will have to wait and see what happens next to see whether mr netanyahu can get any public back on side after what i'm going television last night but for now that i may or and senior correspondent a columnist for israel's ha'aretz newspaper really appreciate your time and i'll take thanks for joining us. thank you on the way tackling human trafficking in
libya the french president's got an idea but it's not getting universal applause the details on that after the break. the war still of you on the idea that dropping bombs brings us to the chicken pox forcing you to fight the battle. to stop spreading tell you to be gossip to. fight. all the hawks are we. good. there is no center in the united states' political discourse it's all center right
ever since the clinton people came into power the center right has become the right and there is no peace party that exists in my country and i don't see any evidence of it except this third party that is so criticized the green party. welcome back the french president has tabled a new plan to combat human trafficking in libya emmanuelle mccrone says it will involve concrete police and military actions but his plans been widely criticized especially as the north african countries still have ruins following the nato led intervention in twenty eleven but i guess you have takes up a story. slavery and human trafficking of fences sadly common now in libya but no need to fear president macron is here he
has the solution for libya's problem send in the troops it's a new city zone we're proposing police military action we are not waging war but this is a country in a political transition political transition he calls it does sound better than as savage civil war more politically correct nevertheless a number of african and e.u. states are ready to help fight this war or rather not really a war says micron but a military operation still round two for france in libya. today were intervening in libya we are intervening in order to enable the libyan people to choose their own destiny it must not be deprived of its rights by violence and terror the fact that slavery is so rampant in libya is because the country's army and political order were obliterated under nato bombardment six
years ago since then libya has been stuck in a brutal and bloody political transition as president calls it or absolute chaos and anarchy as anyone out call it as long as it is a failed state the problem will come back as a failed state because the regime of at our feet up was not a mass regime nobody says that was destroyed by the french and the british together in two thousand and eleven so of course michael can do something now put it full reoccur. well taking a look at the numbers so you can see the problem of modern day slavery is most severe in africa it's followed by asia in the pacific region and then central asia and europe france itself though has become a key hub for human trafficking according to the u.s. state department's anyhow report that it's published a list france is both a destination and a transit point for men women and children subjected to forced labor and sex
trafficking we spoke to the vice president of the libyan presidential council and asked him about president mccraw military plans. we. currently have but no. we cannot accept anything to be done with our representative libyan libyans to be the one to do this. with the help of the board of the government. well that i way to help them. do the right investment on their country of origin libya is not the country of origin a democratic libya is a country or we as a libyan have already invest in africa and we want to see anybody talk of they were going to rule first with their country of origin and to help these immigrants to stay with their loved ones with their families. be cryptocurrency bitcoin has been
now how we discuss the risks of investing in crypto currency is without a financial house economics professor steve came. it's such a huge right across encourage people looking at the ceiling of go to be there the entry cost is so unless i'm buying a house and having the house waterproof shiite so people are dogging him because the process is rausing but that's one of the definitions of a bubble bitcoin is not a bubble the us dollars in a bubble they feel that currency world is in a bubble stocks and bonds you could argue are in a bubble something that's not a bubble would be a big coin you've got the dollar that is crashing in a hyperinflationary crash against bitcoin isn't there a really strong argument that it's being used speculatively as a store of value but actually where can you actually use a bit go to don't to many places in the come on you can actually spend it and isn't there a danger when people realize that the pony can sell this story value it's being a it's a there are hundreds of thousands of transactions now a day hundred thousand merchants accept it going to the real estate market being up
ended by bit going you can buy high end properties went bad point but again the timeline here has to be considered the travel from being a store of value to a means of exchange is going to take another few years because even though you can boil those things with it you'd be immediate to buy those things now because if you wipe ten weeks you can botch washes many or three charms as many so it's a process to stabilise now my worry is when it stabilizes what will happen to that process i don't think it's going to necessarily reach the stratosphere at a hundred thousand dollars and then stay there if you get to the stage where the only returns you're getting out of big coin manning of the transactions then i think the process to fall dramatically you have gold as a case study gold is used takes a lot of energy to produce gold gold is used as a means of exchange as well as a store of value it's been around for quite some time because it is gold to point out the motherlode it's still taking over the global finance in this way it's putting feet of money out of business and the bankers on wall street are running scared jamie dimon is literally you know peeing in his pants at this point because
you know he's going to be out of a job in five years we don't need the jamie diamond of the world ripping us off we don't need wells fargo stealing money. out of accounts we don't really just b.c. funding drug lords in mexico to the tune of billions of dollars we don't need those bad actors in society and big going gets rid of all those financial terrorists and it's about time somebody stood up and did battle because the government's not doing it the academics are doing it so we have big going to do it. i've got some breaking news for you from new york one person's been killed and at least three others injured after a car was allegedly driven deliberately into them in the street it happened in the queens area of new york police are still searching for the driver of that vehicle at the moment police say that this crash is not believed to be terror related but of course it's just a month after a rather driving incident killed eight people on halloween also in new york that incident specifically was considered an act of terrorism this anymore details about what we're getting from queens in new york we'll update you on international you're
