10:30 pm
it's not easy to spot i mean to say one thing and history is saying another. the great books of the 20th century. present day hoaxes this is. and who's behind the. face of this kind of behavior that is unacceptable and will not be allowed manufacturing ignorance strikes me on d w. c. in september voters here in germany will go to the polls to elect a new parliament but it is the new chancellor that the world will be interested in after 16 years until america will step down who will step up to replace her among merkel's conservative sister parties it is down to 2 men governors one from the south one from the west one leads in the polls one leads a much larger party but which one is
10:31 pm
a winner which one can guarantee victory on election day tonight the answer is neither i'm burnt off in berlin this is the day. it's between there is a lot at stake europe is poaching the world especially a stable germany. has been we are in a serious situation as a country we are all stressed by the coronavirus are in it because it is my position is clear and of how do you think many kids i once a month in germany. that is completely still for this is not about our personal ambitions it's about the good not just of the party but above all of germany i think it's one thing was apparent today everybody wants a quick decision. and. also coming up
10:32 pm
a blackout at one of iran's main nuclear sites tehran calls it israeli nuclear terrorism israel saying nothing but it looks like a message meant for those talks that are aimed at saving the iran nuclear deal if it is israel this is sky and of a signal to be sent to the reunions and maybe even to the americans and this is kind of a way by which to me the other on the stand what you have in hand and how that may and the how serious could be the damage be inflicted on you if you are not taking that into account this is also a sigh. political war and this is why i think at this very important. point to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and to all of you around the world welcome we begin the day with the 2 men who would like to fill the shoes of a woman named until a miracle in 5 months germany will hold a national election a new parliament will be the result along with
10:33 pm
a new chancellor after 16 years in office until america often labeled the most powerful woman in the world well she's calling it quits will leave office just 3 months shy of becoming germany's longest serving chancellor in most of mockers he's holding power uninterrupted for almost 2 decades it seems unthinkable some would say 16 years with no transition at the top is not healthy for democracy they could point to the fact that there is no clear successor to who mare who can pass the baton and that brings us to these 2 men you see behind me here are mean lush it and mark reuss zuda they are both governors now for our u.s. viewers you can imagine the governors of california and texas vying for the nomination to run for u.s. president that gives you an idea of where these 2 men are tonight but there will only be one conservative candidate for chancellor and in stark contrast to those long u.s. campaigns
10:34 pm
a decision on who will be the candidate is expected by this friday. i mean lash it versus marcus the race to be the next conservative candidate to run for german chancellor is turning into an old fashioned power struggle on sunday the 2 men agreed the decision should come soon and to respect it whoever is chosen. at less than a day later battle lines seem to have been drawn on monday morning at the recently elected c.d.u. leader held meetings with his party's executive and not really a surprise they backed him to be the candid it the man himself sounded impatient to get out on the campaign trail. and. everyone wants a decision soon all the facts are on the table the problems we need to solve be that we should no longer be preoccupied with our internal party issues but rather with the major tasks that lie ahead for germany today tomorrow this week and in the
10:35 pm
coming months morgan. nixon will not lead. to by monday afternoon marcus erd or head of the smaller bavarian c.s.u. had the backing of his party leadership he thinks the conservatives should ponder their candidate question a bit longer not only is he personally more popular than last year he also claims to stand for a style of politics that people want. the conservatives have never fallen out of favor with voters so quickly before everything but there are a clear indication of what the public is thinking and we can't cut ourselves off from the majority of people. that mention and some. fords are the needs now is public support from the wider conservative parties perhaps from members of parliament worried about losing their jobs if the wrong man leads them into the national election in september. if those voices do not materialize it seems very
10:36 pm
likely christian democrats will be the choice to seize the back home when angle america leads the chancellor e. later this year and so among the conservatives it is down to a contest between 2 men let's pull in our cool political correspondent simon young he's covering the story for us tonight good evening to you simon we know that mr zuma he has better poll numbers the public likes him more which in other democracies such as the u.s. it would make him a clear choice but it's not that way and it's not that clear here in germany is. that's right brant i mean let's just as do a bit of background the conservative force in german politics very very least lee you can compare them in policy terms say with the republicans in the us or with the tories in the u.k. just to have an idea of who they are they have an oddity in germany and that is that most of the country is covered by the christian democrat party angle
10:37 pm
a man whose party the c.d.u. but in bavaria the law age states in the south. they have their own policy the christian social union all c.s.u. so when when the bavarians have a strong candidate as they do now for a big job in this case the top political job in the country chancellor they speak up and you know they want to get noticed they want to be taken seriously now the christian democrats and the rest of the country are inclined to say well you know when they the big party in fact we have more important and nobody can become candidate for chancellor without our say so and so you know we should have priority our man should get it well said a points out that he's a lot more popular in the polls more than twice as popular as lash it is in fact so
10:38 pm
you might think that should translate into a choice for him for the varian in lash it on his side says well you know polls go up and down and it's more than 5 months to the election so this goes both ways it's more complicated than it might seem here on the surface definitely and we understand a bit by this coming friday life should insert a plan to have reached an agreement over which one will be the chancellor candidate do we know what is going to happen between now and friday. yeah well the only way i think for certain marcus are to turn this around in his favor and somehow get the the c.d.u. to change their mind will be if you know some key conservative some big names and quite a lot of names i would have thought come out and say you know they prefer him he's the man and one group he's thinking of there are members of parliament because some of those even in the cd you may be thinking over but low down on the list we have
10:39 pm
a proportional representation system with lists so if they might think well lash it's not support that means we won't get so many votes that means there won't be so many c.d.u. people in the next paula meant they not being worried that will be losing their jobs in parliament as a result of kind of the same bayamon last shit so they'd rather vote to serve the pap so. zoraida is going to speak to a meeting of the c.d.u. c.s.u. party bloc in paul in the bundestag tomorrow on tuesday and if he does in fact element lash it probably will do the same so both men a back lane for support there we know that neither of these men was groomed by merkel to be her successor now if one of them does indeed become the next chancellor will this this distance to uncle americal will it be an asset or liability. yeah i think that there's very little of the what
10:40 pm
you might think of as the sort of magical magic that's left that could rub all rub off on either of these 2 guys. americal has chosen not to sort of crown anyone as her own via success jaring her 16 years in the in as chancellor she's tended to sort of brush people aside if they've seemed like they were going to challenge for her job she hasn't kicked the habit even now and so these 2 men have as you say they've built up their profile as leaders of the regional states to regional states in germany they have their own platform i mean last year was seen as the close of the 2 to angola machall but he's tried to put some daylight between him and the chancellor in recent months particularly for instance of a corona policy to such an extent that he's sort of fallen out a little bit with angela merkel there mark is coming from bavaria well he has the
10:41 pm
independents in the separation as it were from the berlin political establishment just by being by virtue of being bavarian so i don't think either of them are looking to sort of somehow come up in the shadow of medical americal remains a very popular politician in germany by some estimates the the most popular but even her star is waning and so i mean if you were a betting chair where would your money be tonight on lush or. well i think that has got the clear support of his side that's the biggest side you've got to go with that but as i say if some big names come out and say they want certainty because he's the more popular man with the public at large and that could change things in the next few days all right some young political correspondent and our resident gambler who always wins so i mean thank you. iran has never given up its quest for nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver
10:42 pm
them and iran consistently consistently and outrageously calls for israel's annihilation and works towards that goal iran must never possess nuclear weapons my policy as prime minister of israel is clear i will never allow iran to have the nuclear capability to carry out its genocidal goal of eliminating israel that was israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu speaking earlier today after tehran accused israel of nuclear terrorism iran is blaming israel for a massive power failure at its natanz uranium enrichment nuclear site israel has neither denied nor confirmed involvement but there was no doubt about who netanyahu is message was aimed at today standing in the room with the prime minister was the u.s. defense secretary lloyd austin austin made a point to emphasize that president joe biden is committed to both israeli security and reviving the iran nuclear deal talks in vienna to restart that deal began last
10:43 pm
week it remains unclear what impact the blackout will have on those talks or on iran's ability to further enrich uranium this is what the head of iran's atomic energy agency said today. god willing we will be able to repair most of the damage caused by the enemy's attempt at sabotage. joke on how it should be and out of there look cool so we are building several sophisticated centrifuge who was right in the hearts of the mountains. i should add that we have taken very serious security measures that. system i am near to our security systems have pinpointed the exact cause of a recent incident. ruse today we activated the emergency power system and we will reconnect the main power system in
10:44 pm
a few days time. all right let's go now to try to parse he is the executive vice president of the quincy institute for responsible state craft in washington d.c. he's an authority in america on us radian relations a trade it's good to have you on the program again i know you tweeted today that the greed of the prospects for a breakthrough in vienna with those talks the more aggressively israel will try to start a war was the blackout you know tons nuclear facility was it an attempt by israel to provoke a war. i think it was primarily an attempt to provoke a collapse of the talks we have seen this pattern extensively in the past and now is a very wary not about the talks failing but about the talks succeeding and he has intervened on numerous occasions in the past with assassinations and other things in order to try to do something that would cause the iranians to lash out and the consequences
10:45 pm
of their lash out will either lead to a collapse of the talks or could escalate into a military confrontation now that the now as in not being washington for quite some time to use military force against iran so the idea that he's looking for some sort of military confrontation a war is clearly not a mystery at this point but i think in this specific case i think he saw a win win situation either it would lead to a situation in which the iranians lash out in a way that a collapse of talks or to run in response would perhaps even be harsher and as a result it could lead to a military confrontation which is exactly what he's been looking for them and as you say timing is very important here president biden's defense secretary lloyd austin he was in israel today he affirmed that it is still washington's aim to return to the iranian nuclear deal take a listen to what he said our efforts to. engage iran in the poll machine on the day should be
10:46 pm
a way that would go jeopardy will continue and i'm very obviously supportive of the president's efforts to try to negotiate. a way ahead there so this is a different tone coming from washington than what we're used to hearing from the trumpet administration so how much pressure do you think this puts then on both israel and iran moving forward. well i think the fact that this was done at a time when austin was just arriving in israel is partly motivated by trying to create confusion in iran and get the iranians to be suspicious that perhaps the u.s. was in on it and simultaneously and it's rather embarrassing for the united states united states is going there and it's intensifying its intelligence sharing with the israelis it's done everything it can to kind of bring in these rallies into the conversation and the response of these raids is to do an attack like this at a moment when austin is in or just about to arrive in israel and israel so it
10:47 pm
doesn't seem to me that the biden administration's strategy of trying to appease netanyahu has been particularly successful in ensuring that he doesn't solve the taj the diplomacy to the by the ministrations as is their number one priority if you if you look at the facts it runs nuclear activities its ballistic missile program its a its attempt to destabilize the region they are all 'd worse today many would say because of what the trumpet ministration did the biden ministration sees it that way so why does the netanyahu see it that way. i think that's an end doesn't see it that way because the biggest fear he has is not that the iranians would be able to have a pathway it's in your weapon biggest fear to israelis out and this is also shared by the saudis and a moralities is that if the united states and iran manage to come to an agreement on the nuclear issue on the nuclear issue essentially is check this would allow the united states to start checking out of the middle east militarily which is what the
10:48 pm
biden straightness says that they want to do it this is what trump said that he wanted to do this is what obama said he wanted to do the american public doesn't want to have this heavy military presence in the middle east it's the reason why the u.s. is in d.c. and this wars but from the perspective of netanyahu and the saudis and others this would be quite a problem for them because they enjoy living on the america's security umbrella and they don't want to lose it now if the u.s. not his face doesn't want to have it any longer seems to be of a lesser concern for nuts and now he's willing to fight to make sure that the united states remains stuck and then at least through the just days before we run out of time the u.s. and israeli intelligence services they've worked together before in operations against iran do you think that this was an example where the israelis operated on their own without informing the americans. the question is partly as to whether there was cannot gratian and also if the united states was or wasn't informed it
10:49 pm
appears that collaboration may not have been the case it would be quite problematic for the united states it was doing this while at the same time claiming that they wanted to have diplomacy but the israelis probably did not completely surprise united states with this the question is how much of a heads up were they given was it any option for the united states to intervene to do object to it or not and i think it's also important to keep in mind this is happened several times in the past but none of the sabotage as it was or assassination has have actually had and deep impact on the trajectory of iran's nuclear program it may have set it back for a couple of months etc but in the longer scheme of things that really has not done any long term damage to the program it has damaged prospects for diplomacy and the irony or the paradox of all of this is that if the israelis actually were to be really successful and really damaged a program it probably only would lead to an out change in the iranian leadership attitude towards this end which the faction that has been arguing that the u.s.
10:50 pm
that iran should just pull out of that g.c.a. pull out of the end u.g. and actually go for a bomb probably will get a stronger arm well it will be interesting to see what effect if any of this has on those talks in vienna we will certainly be watching that as well for the parts executive vice president of the quincy institute for responsible state craft joining us from washington d.c. tonight for his always repeated your time in your insights thank you. and here. we are in the critical point of the pandemic right now the trajectory of this pandemic is growing its 7th week in a row we've had more than 4400000 new cases reported in the last week this is not the situation we want to be in 16 months into a pandemic that's the world health organization there warning that the corona virus pandemic is getting worse in some parts of the world including turkey and india the world's 2nd most populous country here in europe new case numbers remain high in many countries due to the spread of more easily transmissible variants but one
10:51 pm
country is emerging from the pandemic thanks to its effective vaccination roll out today in england began easing its lockdown which was one of the strictest anywhere here in europe pubs with outdoor seating gyms and stores are now reopening much to the relief of most people i think it represents just the start of the end of the whole time it for us in this country anyway is just fantastic since christmas day so this is my 1st this year it's just the socialising of a aids thing out we have to say outside and went on the last night that's what i plan to have to decide soon on this night things have gotten a string. of nasty you know go around by what you won friends and you know it put them back to a regular life in a long time so now they're off and i can hopefully this is the last time i make me feel like they're all cultures that are not expected it's that it's

10:54 pm
tonight there are still a lot of restrictions that are in place for example you can only needs in groups of up to 6 and these meetings are restricted to outdoor settings so this pub just behind me has served courses you would expect an indoor bar that is over structured for people to go into a lot of restrictions as well on meeting other households in your own home in polls say there are lives. patients in the u.k. in england they are easing the restrictions step by step with etc week back in between they want to kathleen look at the impact of the easing of these restrictions it's having on case number is boris johnson the private estate called the easing of restrictions cautious but you are the best at the in a lot of people here understand that they need to approach this with some caution this is not a moment she to put any of the gains made by the vaccine program at risk but to
10:55 pm

11:00 pm
has the right to say law and order. this is g w news live from berlin tonight of the race to be the next german chancellor among the conservatives it is now a duel today c.d.u. party leader armey la should got the nod to leave the conservatives into september elections but his rival bavarian governor marcus fizzer is more popular with voters and are not yet willing to give up the fight also coming up tonight finally it's
11:01 pm
back to the pubs england says she hears to the easing of coded 1000 restrictions as a hard lock down any mass vaccination drive begins bearing fruit. i'm brinkerhoff it's good to have you with us we begin tonight with the race to be the next german chancellor germans go to the polls this fall to elect a new government and after 16 years as chancellor angela merkel will not be running again now her c.d.u. party and it's been very and sister party the c.s.u. are trying to choose between 2 candidates the man preferred by the powerbrokers and the man preferred by the people. i mean lash it versus marcus the race to be the next conservative candidate to run for german chancellor is turning into an old fashioned power struggle on sunday the 2 men agreed the decision should come
11:02 pm
soon and to respect it whoever is chosen. at less than a day later battle lines seem to have been drawn on monday morning at the recently elected c d u leader held meetings with his party's executive and not really a surprise they backed him to be the candid it the man himself sounded impatient to get out on the campaign trail. and. everyone wants a decision soon all the facts are on the table the problems we need to solve are so big that we should no longer be preoccupied with our internal party issues but rather with the major tasks that lie ahead for germany today tomorrow this week and in the coming months. and in next more not legal but by monday afternoon marcus head of the smaller bavarian c.s.u. had the backing of his party leadership he thinks the conservatives should ponder
11:03 pm
their candidate question a bit longer not only is he personally more popular than lash out he also claims to stand for a style of politics that people want. the conservatives have never fallen out of favor with voters so quickly before holds on to everything but they're a clear indication of what the public is thinking and we can't cut ourselves off from the majority of people. that mention and some for dessert or needs now is public support from the white or conservative parties perhaps from members of parliament worried about losing their jobs if the wrong man leads them into the national election in september. if those voices do not materialize it seems very likely christian democrat will be the choice to seize the back home when i'm going to america leads the chancellor later this year. where all political correspondents i mean young explains why the c.d.u. decided to back lusha even though the polls show zircher is more popular with the
11:04 pm
german public i think they wanted to give their backing to their man was just chosen as the chairman of the c.d.u. party back in january so he's got a certain amount of impetus within the party i think there's a feeling from the from the c.d.u. that they are the laws of these tea parties and they should have the priority in big decisions like who's going to be the candidate to run for the nation's top political office so that's why they wanted to i think to just sort of clear this question and clear the air is they probably saw it well says you know we should think about this for a few more days we should listen to what different sections of the party is saying members of parliament and local party associations and have a good think about how we can get up above where we are now in the polls perhaps on the wrong side of 30 percent in latest polls he says we can do better than that
11:05 pm
he's obviously hoping that a few people will come out and support him and if they do in the next 2448 hours this debate could go on to the end of the week and possibly longer. that was our simon young there reporting the latest from berlin let's take a look now at other stories that are making headlines around the world the global chemical weapons watchdog says it has reasonable grounds to believe the syrian regime used chemical weapons in a 2018 attack on it live a report by the o.p.c. w. found the syrian air force dropped a chlorine bomb on the town of solving the syrian government has consistently denied using chemical weapons in the country's civil war u.s. defense secretary lloyd austin has arrived in berlin ahead of high level talks planned for tuesday he's due to meet with his german counterpart on a great hour and other top officials alston is the highest ranking member of the biden administrations a visit germany so far. when so many protests have broken out in the u.s.

part of a broader efforts to rebuild u.s. industry. while i have here these chairs these wafer batteries brought it's all infrastructure this is the infrastructure. we lead the world in the middle of the 20th century we lead the world through 3 lead the world again . 20 personally. so by now let's discuss this further with our financial correspondent in new york. just remind us why we have this chip shortage and why it continues. well 1st production collapsed and then exploded so that's basically what happened in the past 12 months or so so if we think back at the beginning of the pandemic in asia where most also protection takes place we have those shut down so less chips got produced and then it was the
11:19 pm
work from home school that told trend that we've seen 1st there was high demand for computers and other digital devices so that was one factor and then the car industry a good year ago they actually cancelled some orders for the chips because they believed that the amount would be extremely slow and that was true about a year ago but then the u.s. car market for example and also globally it came better much much faster and stronger than expected and so that really caused this mess of shortage that we've seeing right now this 50000000000 in investment that is pushing for is this is much about improving the u.s. position in the market is it is about solving the current shortage. well basically at the end it's probably both even if we talk about those says shortage issues that really takes time to build semiconductor effect or it can take
11:20 pm
up to 2 years so so that's why experts are saying this shortage that the receiving right now will go easy the deep into 2022 but also if we see what happened in the industry in the early ninety's basically the united states also production wise was the leading force was controlling of all its 37 percent off the chip production market globally that by now it's down to 12 percent and then also if you look at ship designs yes the u.s. is still in the driver's seat but china for example is definitely definitely picking up some speed so yes it is also about the dominance of the u.s. chip industry overall we've already heard from intel a couple of weeks ago they're investing 20000000000 dollars so now maybe this help from washington but it is going to take time so we are as i mentioned talking at
