people how to reset the thinking of that man based on did a landmark ruling, a woman born with a spinal defect, whitten's her case against the doctor who 20 years ago is said to have failed to advise her mother properly about having children or guests debate the verdict. and because what i do now is medicine now in 20 years time, we may judge my actions, the doctor has completely wrong. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody, shane, and i mean this is a sensitive like i wish i had never been born. ah . like from moscow, this is, are it see my name's you know, neil and 30 minutes of news and views start not we will get those headlines to reason just a moment, but i want to start with an update on our developing story from
2:02 pm
a run where an explosion was reported near the city of nut tons, which highs the number of the countries nucular installations. the iranian military is now saying it was a drills being conducted nearby with an, or a defense missile system being tested. local to earlier reported a large block being heard in the area, accompanied by a flash of light, also conflicting reports that turn on identify drone not being destroyed based on to your craft. miss style has now been ruled. i thought, came from iranian military. iranian media sources, so military exercise is what the iranian military is now saying. the reason for that explosion concerns are being raised over twitters, possible ties to the u. s. government. it's up to the social media behemoth
2:03 pm
suspended more than $3000.00. that comes from 6 countries, including china and russia, over alleged state sponsored information operations. twitter admits decisions on which accounts to suspend were made with the guidance of the a st leon strategic policy institute. that's a think tank sponsored by us government agencies, including the department of defense r t study hawkins has been delving deeper into the institutes activities. it's common knowledge that trusts in conventional media is falling. you know, when you ask someone where they get their news and they reply, i don't watch tv, i'll do my own research or get my news off social media. that's fair enough. that least with normal news, you tend to know who's sponsoring it, be it's a government or corporation. and you can make your own conclusions. but when you see who's behind an organization claiming to be independent and non partisan, drafted to help provide independent analysis to stop social media manipulation,
2:04 pm
world, anyone would have a few questions. it's not like the australian strategic policy institute hide the fact they're sponsored by the u. s. government or some of the biggest names in the military. industrial complex. the long list is there for all to see is just when so much funding comes from the sources. one does wonder just how independent and balanced they can be. even former australian officials have concerns about the thing. thanks output echoed by some current lawmakers. surely it's fair to subject aspect funding arrangements to scrutiny espy receives core funding a $4000000000.00 from the department of defense. again, the thing thank makes no secret of its anti china stance and the list of works on their website. in fact, china is a key target of the organizations works from human rights in shin gan to chinese tech systems influence projects or this information in social media. many funded by
2:05 pm
the u. s. department of state and defense. their definition of independence may be malleable to say the least. an a s p, i are good at what they do, at least for their defense, industry, sponsors. the numbers say it all since the think tank was founded 20 years ago. weapons manufacturers have collected tens of billions of dollars in government contracts prior to the cobit pandemic. the organization hosted dozens of events from bringing it together. key players in defense and politics. providing the opportunity for closed door discussions with government departments and agencies. the s p i is so heavily involved with foreign governments and political organizations. it's even registered with the australian governments. forward inputs transparency register. many were so pleased with the think tanks work. their funding to the organization has grown significantly year on year as have their funds from sponsorship and commercial revenue under the direction of executive
2:06 pm
director peter jennings. who is himself clear where the blame for increasing tensions lies. militarize themselves pharmacy, posing china's authoritarian control in hong kong, threatening taiwan and japan on a daily basis. china is the strategic problem in the region and back to the point. the thing thank is now partnered with the social media joint, helping to decide and coordinate what information users have access to. and what is sentence it so much for independent analysis and serving the public conversation is little wonder that some question whose interests does this really serve? britain's royal college of midwives has said, sorry for its latest supposedly inclusive guidelines which make no reference to women or mothers, but only to postnatal. people responding to complaints the college called data and
2:07 pm
oversight. the organization had taken advice from the controversial pro diversity group, stonewall a former n h s nurse. we spoke to say the lobby group or the r c. m itself has no right to tell midwives what to think starving, healthiest, why they apologized because of the instantaneous backlash. how service is sac her to be a safe environment for this normal process is natural process to happen? it is not the royal college of midwives role to tell them, make wives how to think and, and i'm afraid that this is yet another example of stem wool going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset the thing king of that members the royal college of midwives withdrew the gender neutral guidance after an online backlash. in the instructions for m a chair staff and how to put newborns to bed safely, women word mentioned that all referring rather to parents and carers. the guidance
2:08 pm
was supposed to be l g, b t, c, inclusive. but the response was overwhelmingly negative. how can you possibly rise about pregnancy? and thus, without mentioning women, that's deliberate, not an oversight. apparently the royal college, a midwife says midwives need to call mothers postnatal people, not mothers, all women. so to all you ladies out there, you're a postnatal person, not a mother. i right. how do the royal college of midwives forget about women? they are the sole reason you even exist. well, nurse, rebecca butler again says it's hard to find anybody who actually supports the idea . people don't want to replace the word series, a very, very vocal minority and a very effective act to this group in stone. will he want to rewrite the rules file
2:09 pm
which be less rely, governor, who they think they're appealing to? because the person in front of the midwife ease of biological woman, why the world college is midwife, has chosen to adopt policies, advocated by stonewall, is amount to for them to answer. but my point here is that the general public does not midwives do not. okay. i don't actually, neither does the transgender community. it is one organization that is pushing as he can so hard. and he's getting it very, very badly. a mother is a mother and the role if the midwife is to ensure the mothers safety and the baby safety and that is the end of that role. they should not be involving themselves in this. so to ridiculous political posturing. a young woman with a spinal defect. how successfully sued her mother's doctor for giving the parent
2:10 pm
bought advice. 20 years ago before her pregnancy in a lunmark ruling, the you case high court agree bumped the medics failure to tell her to take supplements amounted to negligence. evie tunes overcame her condition to become a parachute jumping star, though she house to spend days at a time connected to tubes. the judge said that could have been avoided if her mother had been recommended to take folic acid, both before and during her pregnancy. in accordance with official guidance provided with the correct recommended advice she would have delayed attempts to conceive in the circumstances there would have been a later conception which would have resulted in a normal healthy child. the doctor in question denies the allegation, saying he provided all necessary instructions. we discussed what precedent the ruling sets with our guests, john goetz, radio host and colonists, and doctor dean exit a g p. this is we're talking about was 20 years ago in year 2001 i think it was
2:11 pm
and around that sort of time we to probably been giving advice off. well, if your diet is rich and go to cast it, keep keep doing it. you don't necessarily need to supplement. so again, it's really hard to judge what happened back in 2001 based on the standard that we have today. can you really bring one? you can because it's what can you bring the case? 20 years after so many poor to afford. i mean this isn't for linda mind where somebody was given, you know, a tablet. it isn't that kind of situation. this scenario shows that you're going to take a long time in the future to very clearly document the advice we give. and more importantly, actually the advice that we don't get. so it's kind of a significant plan to put on time. one of the, the big challenges that often documentation, it's about how you're judged because of course, what i do now is medicine. now in 20 years time, we made george my actions as a doctor has completely wrong because as time progresses and we learn more, our practice is progress. one of my worries would be for doctors that they would on
2:12 pm
the side of caution now and perhaps start recommending for other both difficulties . maybe abortion i'm thinking particularly of down's syndrome babies when we do know that they, these people can go on to lead. very successful lives as well. the have to be aligned somewhere, doesn't that because of course we recognize that and patients name certain details of medicine. it's our job to teach them. busy to bring them on that journey to get them on board so that we can make decisions to get that to treat the problem. but if we're saying and all that common sense stuff to falls into the lap of the doctor to have to deal with and say, well, come on, the doctors responsibility to tell you how to live your life. what to do. not only they're responsible for prescribing, but also responsible for telling you how to live healthily and if you don't have healthy doctors all. and that's an impossible situation to doctors to work it. we do need perhaps now in the light of this we need to put some safety guidelines in
2:13 pm
there. most of the patient and for the doctor. i mean, i do find it incredible that 20 years after this, the doctor is in this position with his whole life ruined. and i still of immense sympathy, obviously, for a lady involved as well. you know what, we're already in that position of jeopardy because that's exactly the situation we dr. moment. for example, if i was to get the patients and advice today and the patient doesn't necessarily follow that advice, doesn't necessarily come back to see me again, like i ask them to do. and then sadly they develop a severe illness and they come back and see me and say, well, the doctor found it. my argument back would be, well, you didn't come back to me like ask you to or you didn't do the things that i asked you to. nonetheless, i will have to go through the process of call. i just think this is a really tragic case. and i wish you had never come to court. i wish the evie had got the help and the assistance she needs. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody saying, i mean this is a sensitive like,
2:14 pm
i wish i had never been born. so i had an r t counting the human cost of war. the u. s. military launch is a prob, into a recent drone strike in syria. but me, of course, civilian casualties. that's us. research suggests almost 100000 civilian liars have been lost at the hands of the pentagon. during the conflict. quite astonishing number. we'd get into that after the break. ah ah, join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. i'll be speaking to guess in the world politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. oh is your media a reflection of reality?
2:15 pm
in the world transformed? what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way? where are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true was is great. in the world corrupted. you need to descend. ah, so join us in the depths. will remain in the shallows. ah ah oh, quarter of an hour into the program. welcome back. the white house is blaming a surgeon lawlessness in the u. s. on the pandemic press secretary gen saki when
2:16 pm
question about recent mass looting, said cobit was the key factor. when a huge group of criminals organizes themselves and they want to go lu, pay store at cbs, nordstrom, a home depot, and tell the shelves are clean. you think that because of the pan down? i think a root cause and a lot of community is, is the pandemic. yes, jen sacking remarks come amid a spike in losing, in a number of states over the past month. something that others are blaming on the rise of the de, from the police movement. ah,
2:17 pm
a retired police officer, dominic is o told us why he thinks they crime serge, on the pandemic, aren't just embarrassing that they're not admitting what it is. it has nothing to do with calvin. it hasn't been doing bell reform and them releasing criminals right back on the street. not prosecuting properly has nothing to do. cover the fun. the police movement is an emotional response for any time that that the public doesn't understand when use of force is needed. right. you have unarmed either black americans or whatever the case is shot by police and before an investigation is done. the civil rights activists come in and claim police misconduct. so we already have a situation where emotions are high. the voter thinks the emotional voter thinks is that who this is defining the police, which means we're going to get rid of the cops on our streets. and then let's replace them with the social workers or other people who are better trained and equipped to deal with emotional issues on the street. when you start to have that mindset, well then you're, you're looking at police negatively. so already the immoral,
2:18 pm
the criminal who are out there, feel that they've got the backing of the public. well, i don't have to obey the law. i can break the law because there's already this massive movement to defend the police, which means they're gonna side with me. it's a mindset of it's okay for us to do this. and we're gonna act like criminals because nothing's gonna happen to us as well as facing a crime wave. the u. s. is also suffering from soaring inflation. many americans are blooming the biden administration for that with a 5th of respondents and a recent nationwide policy per leadership in the country. so the problem doesn't include democrats with some quitting the party and even switching sides, breaking it all done for us. ortiz kill of morphin. apparently, it's not only working families throughout america who are disappointed by the biden administration's handling of several crises. it's also members of biden's own democratic party, some like the former spokesperson for the washington dc. mayor,
2:19 pm
have decided to switch over to the republicans in hispanic and also black eyes. i should be democrat by default, but i'm going against their narrative and i feel like right now, everything is crumbling for the democrats biden is completely destroying the economy right now. and people can feel it in. so that's what's happening in washington, d. c. now, washington, d. c is a city that is pretty solidly in the democratic camp. democrats sometimes even get 90 percent of the vote in elections. no wonder democrats as far away as texas are switching sides friends. something is happening in south texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in washington dc are not our values, not the values of most texans, the ideology of to funding the police of destroying oil and gas industry. and the chaos our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in south texas. in addition to the recent shifts, 19 democrats are set to leave the house of representatives in 2022. that includes 3
2:20 pm
committee chair. some are retiring or seeking another office. republicans only need to gain 5 more seeds in the upcoming mid term vote in order to re take control of the house of representatives. and many observers say their chances of doing so are pretty good. some are comparing it to the republican sweep 10 years ago. how's democrats have more retirements than they did in 2010 when the last 63 seats? it's not only the party that's losing people. kamala harris, the vice president of joe biden, is watching her team implode as well. her spokesperson and her communications director have both decided to quit with reports indicating that there are 2 more aids who have one foot out. the door reports are leaking out about strife between her office and the biden team, and the backdrop to all of this is the joe biden's approval ratings. keep going down. the mid terms are less than a year away and the democratic party seems to be crashing and burning. it appears
2:21 pm
that some in light of the circumstances have decided to jump out of a sinking ship, which might be causing the democrats even more trouble. the democrats are not delivery and plain and simple, and they're specifically not delivering to the people who are responsible for putting them in power, namely indigenous black, brown, asian, and poor white people. they have given this president and his congress a chance to govern, and the results so far have just not been adequate enough. we have not seen a protection of voting rights. we have not seen police reform. we have not seen action on climate change. i think that people are rightfully letting this administration know based on the approval ratings that are more needs to be done and very, very quickly. or there will be electoral consequences if things don't turn around. and i need very, very quickly where people can start to see a trajectory of a going upwards in their favor. they're going to respond with their votes and the democrats could be wiped out. an investigation has been launched by us central
2:22 pm
command into a recent croon attack. in syria, which may have resulted in civilian casualties, the strike was said to have been targeting a senior al qaeda leader unplugged her. we uphold the loss of innocent life and take all possible measures to prevent them. the possibility of a civilian casualty was immediately self reported to us central command. we are initiating a full investigation of the allegations and will release the results when appropriate in a separate development, the u. s. defense secretary also launched a new probe and to a nurse drank, and syria, back in 2019 which killed dozens of women and children. meanwhile, 20 want humanitarian organizations have published an open letter calling for an urgent rethink of pentagon policy. we at gta vera boss, leah can full and rec, in with the civilian hum of the last 20 years and commit to finally implementing
2:23 pm
structural changes to prioritize sit and protection and accountability for civilian hom, back in september a decade, long costs of war. a project by brawn university released its findings with part of the study focusing on the debt soul in syria since 2014 a claims. the u. s. military was responsible for more than 95000 civilian debts with 75 journalists and more than 200 humanitarian workers also killed. let's welcome on to the show now ken stone and canada from the hamilton coalition to stop the war. you're very welcome. can that figure, i just mentioned 95000 civilian debts in syria at the hands of the u. s. military? it's an astonishing number. why isn't washington doing more to avoid them? washington as has apollo,
2:24 pm
the c o promoting its foreign policy goals are to the detriment of to the exclusion of civilian casualties or treating civilian casualties as quote collateral damage the u. s. contention that is in syria to fight terrorism in the 1st place is a sham, ah, if a were in syria to fight terrorism, it would be working with the legitimate government of syria in damascus. and it is not. com instead in 2011 with the ies help and connivance of its allies, including unfortunately, canada. the u. s. imported whole proxy armies of terrorists into syria, who proceeded to lay waste to whole cities. and the death toll so far has been not 95000. but closer 260-0000 total deaths in syria,
2:25 pm
which many of them are civilians. and again, in 2014 the u. s. was responsible for birthing isis dyess. and it will did so in order again to bring down the syrian government, but also as a pretext for keeping its truce inside of iraq. and the cost of the feeding isis is also in this, in the 10s of thousands of civilian deaths. so again, the u. s does not care about civilian deaths, they are merely collateral damage in its foreign policy aims to achieve hedge ammonia in the middle east, and in fact the entire world. earlier this year we saw the tronic truen strike and couple that killed many civilians, including a number of children the u. s. admitted it made a mistake, but given can the high level of technology, the surveillance that exists. now, how can so many mistakes happen?
2:26 pm
how do you confuse children for a direct terror threat? basically, u. s. drones strikes in foreign countries are flagrantly illegal. they, they are at extra legal assassinations that take place in countries where the government does not approve of the us operating there. we have to understand that in that context i b r jerome strikes that i have taken place in foreign countries. i'm result in many, many civilian deaths. but the show and sad fact is that u. s. presidents love jerome strikes. it makes them appear in the words of the u. s . media as quote presidential. so in other words, when us presidents are acting in a heavy handed manner against pete, mainly people of color in foreign countries, they look good in the media and it looks much better. of course, when you have
2:27 pm
a high score of deaths like 980-0120 per strike rather than just 2 or 3. i. but i wonder, i wonder how americans would like it. if foreign countries were conducting extra legal assassinations by drone strikes inside the sovereign territory of the usa, are you surprised as well? there hasn't been more of a backlash around the world to the amount of casualties that but you know what? we're hearing ny from university sources of investigations, lasting years to the amount of casualties the u. s. has been responsible for. yes, it's been responsible for millions of civilian casualties in iraq and syria in afghanistan in libya, in many countries around the world since 1945. and the result has been slowed to take place. but finally,
2:28 pm
there are regional blocks forming in many parts of the world because the countries of those countries and that those parts of the world understand that the u. s. a tax countries that can't fight back small and weak countries. and so we have our regional blocks, for example, the shanghai co operation or organisation, which i'm present, so united front towards you, possible us wars of aggression can thanks very much for your time today. enjoyed the chat as always 10 scott of kennestone, excuse me, from the hamilton coalition to stop the war. that's our saturday night global news roundup from moscow. but our programs, they're just beginning, find out what showing wherever you are today in moments. ah
2:29 pm
a . so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is on offense, bearing dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk ah ah
2:30 pm
ah, i ah, with that action resent senior watching, going on the ground, made global fears over a new cove at variance on the current coming up with joe an advisor to the 1st government and reported omicron to the world health organization or whether the next variant will not to be reported for fear of nato nation.
