seventeen complete russian all germany war one goal to go over your goal will bring you the chances and all the drama if you will. hello i'm neki aaron and you're watching the weekly here on r.t. international all the latest headlines on the stories that shaped the week top story this hour the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman has found a video is alleging to show the aftermath of a chemical attack in syria saying they are fakes it produced as part of an anti assad propaganda campaign. the social media smear campaign under the banner assad used chemical weapons has now started just as we predicted you'll see more of this fake videos over the following days the complain this plan to be on a grand scale videos purporting to show victims of an s.r.o.
ordered chemical attack flooded social media on saturday after the white house accused the syrian government of preparing a toxic strike syrian journalist to allaah abraham says it would make no sense for damascus to do anything of the sort surveys come out of the sarong issued a statement denying any use of chemical weapons saying that this actually is a well known tactic used by terrorist groups according to the statement of the syrian army when these groups feel that they are on the fallback they try to stage chemical attacks to stop them from advancing if we're going to discuss the circumstances surrounding these attacks and it doesn't make a lot of sense for the syrian government and its meaning no tommy achieving actually substantial most regains in more than one from that it would do something that would enable the rebels to benefit from international support to actually force the army to bring its operations into a complete halt when washington was all set to back up its allegations that
damascus was preparing a chemical attack it failed to provide any evidence but as daniel bushell explains the u.s. doesn't seem to need much proof when it comes to accusing assad russia has one really bad habit and that's how it is and he only does this when he's winning he ruins everything but doing something really stupid for no reason at. take oh me now they crushing islamic states liberating vul swathes of syria and out of the blue comes this. the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime that said knows the pro bowl consequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now who could ruin him by giving his enemies pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the
murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal a classic super villain both stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind a villain but man would go off and america is batman. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if it does something really dumb for no reason again the u.k. will join the us in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action and if you've been following events in syria recently you know they'll hitting the united states has attacked and said point times and what they say is
self defense. problem is justifying the prolonged conflict isn't easy western voters don't want another gung ho i mean campaign they learned their lesson off the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions the only thing left is to wait for asset to give them a cools and since he's a comic book supervillain that's just part of the script. berg the director of the trans national foundation for peace and futurists says the western media is campaign to demonize assad is verging on farcical the mainstream media the large media that are influencing the western decision making process and the citizens opinion about this you take the case for instance of the totally black picture that is painted of of bashar alastor now nobody can be as evil as he's been made in the western world it is very important that we're aware that knowledge good analysis is
all put in the background these days in international politics. the us president donald trump has taken another swipe at the media this time almost literally posting a mock video of a wrestling match between him and c.n.n. that they were thanking the we thank trump has been accusing c.n.n. of producing fake news and being biased against him since his election in a tweet he said he was thinking of changing the channels name to force news c.n.n. . the fake media tried to stop us from going to the white house but i'm president and they're not i was
the fact is the press has destroyed themselves because they went too far. c.n.n. have responded with their own tweet accusing the president of encouraging violence and juvenile behavior political analyst tells a little believes the channel brought the situation upon it self in the case of c.n.n. we are talking as regards trump and indeed as against the conservative elements of the united states of america of a nonstop this information campaign and when it comes to trump spewing fraudulent nonsense about you know what happened in the election and after the election they've severely lost their way which is evidenced i think in the long term trend in their viewership but let's remember this is the network admittedly they later fired kathy griffin for holding up a mock severed head of our president and c.n.n.
the same network is complaining about a cartoon i mean give me a break i would say that c.n.n. has a lot better things to do than they than they did for example a couple years ago wasting all the time on the missing malaysian flight and then in the last number of months here going on and on and on about this suppose a russian collusion hacking story which i hope at this point has been dealt with i mean see it's kind of rich for c.n.n. to call the pot calling the kettle black here. china has sent military vessels and planes to warn off an american warship bating claims the vessel violates his territorial waters in the south china sea. under the pretext of navigation freedom the u.s. side once again since a military vessel into china's territorial waters this constitutes a serious political and military provocation the chinese side is dissatisfied with
and opposed to the relevant behavior of the u.s. side the u.s. guided missile destroyer came within twelve nautical miles of triton island is part of the disputed parasail island which china considers to be its territory this comes at a time of heightened tensions between washington and beijing washington recently announced plans to sell arms worth one point four billion dollars to taiwan the move in a few reate to china and raise doubts have a president trump the efforts to improve relations with beijing well as discussed the situation further now of course life to jim dean managing editor of veterans today mr dean thank you for joining us on the program now the pentagon has declined to comment on this incident how damaging could this incident be if the u.s. china relations do you think. well he's we have to ask oh why now is he doing this and of course what we have to do as background on it is
he's done the it was eve mentioned that he was not happy with china being able to have a stronger effect on north korea and their missile program we had the huge weapons deal signed with taiwan and here we have as part of turning the screws another one of the ship floating by one of their artificial islands so all of this is part of a sparring campaign that i think is going to go on for quite a while this this the spill over who has sovereignty over the south china sea is going to be with us for years it really doesn't involve the united states because it's on the other side of the world but the u.s. likes to show the flag but china has major interest here because it's got a billion people a huge energy. appetite which it's spending
a lot of its foreign earnings importing so a long range if there is energy found in this area it wants to lay claim to it and of course the u.s. is basically saying we will we will challenge that but in the eyes of painting bases being called a military provocation why do you think the u.s. would have sent a destroyer to a disputed island as such a sensitive time. just to get the publicity that we can do it and we will continue doing it and then get the publicity trump a lot of control giving the time on him on the u.s. which means other issues are not being covered so it is a provocation in this case china the right there is going to respond and they may do so by adding more military forces in defense of forces to those islands which the u.s. may want because then they'll say china's expanding their military occupation of
these islands so it's really a long p.r. battle and we're going to have to wait and see what happens when we hear from some of the other nations in the car and the area that are also laying claim to the be islands about taiwan the u.s. arms to really spell that downturn between china u.s. relations do you think within the end of the so-called trump china honeymoon. i don't think so yet china it's not that china has been doing nothing to help on the north korea situation they canceled a very big cold deal with north korea which is a very important. foreign earnings. earner for him so and they had been doing some big as much pressure as they can but the u.s. is the north north korea's offer that it would stop testing its missiles if south
korea and the u.s. would stop doing their big military maneuvers and when that didn't get a response they even offered to go in the talks with no conditions which the u.s. basically ignored so this is this north korean thing is being strung out also to create more publicity this threat of north korea could strike the u.s. within this still which is just absolutely ludicrous so we really have some theatre going on with us and that's going to go on this also is going to go on for quite some time jim dean managing editor of veterans today thank you for your time coming up after the break we'll bring you our special coverage from the confederations cup down with it.
one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with cyber crime is attribute who did it why did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks and you've mentioned one across the recent won't run somewhere attack it's still unclear where that originated from so our clear message to government is to work together around the world to minimize this risk to grow those relationships and make sure that diplomacy is the key to everything.

their firm going to press pressing use it's not a modern invention in football for its very fashionable one that means that the players spoilt the pitch people like exemption it's not appropriate to go impress the fake business doing they'd left the back door at the other end and this was the consequence. was absolutely terrible the call went to them in germany starts to pep up the goal last night a group of confidence brick was chile's half they came back into the guy they created chances there was a very feisty football match after he said no sendings off will always play the should everyone on gonzalo yada so the referee did very well to keep both sets of players on the pitch and towards the end of the game knew this was the story of the guy chile throwing everything out to a golden generation an opportunity to cement their legacy on the world level where it was great to pull kept on coming into the box the chances kept on coming and i see that i just couldn't seal the deal congratulations to germany i add two days
