no more. like. russian submarine strike i saw targets around the syrian city of did his moscow continues to support government forces and its campaign to liberate the country from terrorists also this in neighboring iraq claims responsibility for two terror attacks that have left at least fifty people dead. and hillary clinton opens up on her election defeat in her new book outlining who and what she thinks cost to the chance to be america's first female president.
hello there comes you live from moscow you're watching r.t. and. now the russian navy has targeted a number of eisel held areas with missiles near the syrian city did is sought with the details his. thursday's strikes are really quite significant because many see darrow's or as sort of one of isis last remaining strongholds in syria that we could be seeing the beginning of the and of i saw a final push to take back what little the land they do have left at this point and the pictures we have of the seven cruise missiles being launched from two russian submarines in the mediterranean sea really do show a lot of destruction being their targets and of course the statement from the russian defense ministry has confirmed already that all their intended targets were hit and that includes eisel control centers communications hubs and possibly most significantly an ammunition stockpile all in dairies or now of course the fall of there is order really started last week on the time for the fifth when landmark
progress in the city was finally seeing a syrian forces backed by russian air force were finally able to break the three year long blockade of the city and it's also believe that a number of very high level i sold militants were killed in the massive air strikes conducted by russia and while fighting of course does continue in this city today's successful strikes by russia really do bring syria one step closer to finally fully liberating that city and possibly the country as a whole from islamic state. meanwhile in iraq at least fifty people have been killed in another eighty wounded in twin attacks in the south of the country according to local media and the islamic state has claimed responsibility for the first attack one terrorist detonated a suicide vest in this in a restaurant on a highway linking the province from baghdad several more then opened fire and shortly after that two suicide bombers one of whom was driving
a car rigged with explosives blew themselves up at a nearby security checkpoint it's been reported that the majority of the deaths were in the restaurant and that many of those even there with iranian pilgrims risky contributor to the. that i saw losses in iraq in syria might lead to more attacks of the kind. after it lost more solar a lot farther it's trying to make up for these losses but i think another part which is perhaps more important is that our source of the losing territory is there are going from not from a terrorist group which used to hold the territories to a group which no longer holds territories and focuses on caring how do you know these are these terrorist attacks which are similar to the toxic carried out or it inspired in paris or in tunisia or elsewhere but now in iraq and syria maybe you're going to see more and more of these attacks the more isis loses power is going to
turn into a terrorist group which focuses on you know launching or targeting civilians. or to children who were rescued from i still held territory in iraq have now been reunited with their relatives back in russia it's believed that the youngsters immediate family were killed in the battle for the city of mosul it would r.t. we've been running a campaign called bring them home and it does help authorities track down the really relations of orphaned russian speaking children this is as land he is said to have been rescued from the basement where he had been hiding with his mother two brothers and sister as the fighting raged he was the sole survivor from his family and then the little girl is had r.t. first met the kids in an orphanage in iraq and after a long journey they have finally made it home to chechnya and they're now with their relatives. in.

free will of the people. now the u.s. is building up its presence in poland at the moment with more than a thousand military vehicles of them four hundred track are tracked and they do include nearly two hundred tanks and an entire infantry division as part of the existing nato force in eastern europe where the u.s. general heading the heading up the european deployment does say it is in response to the drills which start today between russia and better rigs and he added to that a deal is needed to allow the free movement of troops across europe similar to the open border schenkkan agreement and that would allow u.s. units to be deployed in nato member states without countries permission but so far only five e.u. member is set to back the idea meanwhile american troops are taking part in sweden's biggest military drills in more than twenty years
a ruler seventeen here is taking place on an island in the middle of the baltic sea is mr francis santiago on why the neutral nation does feel the need for large military exercises. there is a video out there on sweden that peaceful beautiful land full of green fields good food and very generous social programs. but actually this video turns into something hard and heavy right away turns out it's promoting the largest military exercise of the past two decades. of war. he added and that you and i dance on campus seventy times small let us down see the whole. economy at them not on good books that he and.
i. and not just any exercise but one designed to deal with a quote a larger sophisticated opponent that one will approach from the east nineteen thousand participants just from sweden alone as well as military forces from eight other countries have joined these drills called arora seventeen and you guessed it the united states is also there the united states with their allies and partners are doing this this is normal business for us that's going to be our posture normal business we train all the time we work soldiers work always to be at the highest level of preparation not alert but being prepared that's that's our job that's what you would expect us to be ready just like you expect the fire department to be
ready at the hospital to be reading very nice business as usual but not for sweden it's getting back it's mandatory military draft which was canceled the two thousand and two. now in twenty thousand at least four thousand swedes will get the call all in the swedish military is now going to enjoy a nice growth in military spending for the next few years even the low key swedish resort jewel of gotland with its sandy beaches and intriguing limestone has been introduced to the swedish military they've been stationed there since two thousand and sixteen and still to no avail no attacks have come from the east but wait a second there was a russian spies submarine alert a few years ago the scandinavian military went full swing into a large scale search mission in the end it all turned out to be nothing but a fishing boat seriously so now the swedish military are staging these massive drills to make sure they can protect the nation from an attack which they
themselves the my quote unlikely seems like an overreaction i wonder what's that about perhaps stockholm taunting a thread that doesn't really exist as sweden's favorite album once sang that's the name of the game at least when it comes to russia maybe of france and thiago r.t. . now if you've ever wondered is there life after losing a presidential election hillary clinton is showing there is nearly a year after her shock defeat to donald trump she has released a book called what happened and aside from a few personal touches and anecdotes to clinton sets out to explain what railroaded her campaign throwing more than a few accusations at people countries and also organizations washington correspondents america on three chapters. looks like hillary clinton is back in the headlines promoting her memoirs and giving interviews left and right to discuss what exactly went wrong in two dozen sixteen when she suffered an unexpected defeat
to reality t.v. star donald trump. and it seems like she's compiled quite the lists of exactly who and what to blame or says that were. work in two thousand and sixteen russian wiki leaks our press i inherit nothing from the democratic party bernie's not a democrat jim collins letter my primary opponent and a lot of his supporters the sexism and the massaging the resentment the stereotype . a lot of people didn't want to hear my plans. for an even more detailed explanation hillary clinton has just released a new book entitled what happened in the book clinton managed to blame everyone and everything under the sun including jill stein songe barack obama and of course. mentioning him and russia about three hundred thirty three times clinton even
leveled attacks at senator bernie sanders for impugning her character but here's what else happened the e-mail scandal when it turned out clinton lied about handling classified information as secretary of state there is no classified materials our investigation found that there was classified information so it was not true let's not forget the constant shaming of supporters you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorable zx and then there was a major strategic miscalculation when she chose not to campaign in the rust belt losing the democratic fire wall that obama won in two thousand and eight in two thousand and twelve the same voters bernie sanders won over during the primaries hillary clinton says she doesn't plan to run for president again but she's definitely making sure she steals the spotlight with response on. our to washington d.c. . meanwhile internet giant amazon has been accused of deleting negative reviews of clinton's latest memoirs from its website in the i was immediately after the book's
publication which is over five hundred pages and only hundreds of one star refused to peer lead to suspicion arising over whether they had been posted by people who had. actually i read the book or not but the comments were removed quickly here's what amazon had to say about the issue. it's no role to decide view as helpful or unhelpful in making that decision we do have mechanisms in place to ensure that the voices of many do not drown out the voices of a few and we will move customers of folly to our community god lines. ok let's get the these now don't go host for talk to me radio and joins us now good evening ciccio on do you think amazon has overstepped the mark here. usual thing isn't it. surprised first look first and foremost that that many people have actually read the book or even bother to read the book why would you want to really read a book by the loser however you do get false reviews on amazon both good and bad
and there were good ones there and there were bad ones there i think the bottom line is yeah amazon participate in the usual thing that the mainstream media do they're propping up clinton the propping up the democrats and they're removing any negativity just as they did during the election campaign constantly criticizing donald trump and his supporters and constantly saying she was going to when she lost this is just the next chapter if you don't mind me saying in her loss and i can't believe that anyone's going to really buy this book or take it seriously it's just a book where she clearly just criticizes everybody rather than taking a deep long look in the mirror and realize she's the reason why she's not the president in an order why the point there john i mean how much can we read into ricky's anyway she might have people like hillary clinton to buy her book and if
you don't like it you're not likely to. yeah that's right i mean it's going to be a book the sprits opinion i mean i was just thinking we don't really write a book when you've lost he wrote a book with the prime minister or the act for a minister the president cetera i mean who really needs to read a book about why she lost so i'm surprised i suppose her diehard supporters might buy. her clearly a thing of the amazon that you always makes me wonder is this the mainstream media again trying to take away the right and i mean the right sort of politics their views and their opinions and so i don't like it you either have reviews on that see when most of us are intelligent enough to realize when a review is clearly just biased and hasn't been read by a verify purchaser so other i don't like it at all stinks but i don't like the book either i wouldn't read the book we all know why she lost she's got the personality
of a plank that's why she lost and donald trump up actually captured the imagination of the american public so the reason she lost is her folks she could have written that on the back of a postage stamp doing really need five or five hundred pages of her bleating and criticizing everybody even our own party thanks. john good to tell you as always nice to get your views on that i was a jungle. thank you thank you. another nice south korean president in has ruled out the possibility of deploying nuclear weapons to his country despite growing tensions with north korea agreed a south korean needs from develop our own nuclear weapons or relocate article nuclear weapons in the face of north korea's missile threat respond to north korea by having her own nuclear weapons will not maintain peace from the green the new school. well that announcement does come after south korea's defense minister asked
his american counterpart for more nuclear weapons to be sent regularly to the pinin chiller he explained the call for more tactical asset saying that many of the country's law makers as well as the media strongly support the idea american tactical nuclear weapons were present in the korean peninsula almost throughout the entire cold war and were withdrawn only in one thousand nine hundred one as part of the global nonproliferation deal however a recent poll in south korea does show that about sixty percent of people would back nuclear armament. there's been a similar debate on the race to the point of american anti missile launches to the system known as that caused huge protests as demonstrators clashed with police at the base now hosting the military equipment. was. was
i was . ok let's get the thoughts now of dr park known one he's a senior lecturer in politics and international relations at bath universe in joins us now good evening to you thanks for coming on to r.t. how do you think washington will react then to this statement that south korea doesn't want america next on its soil. well i think presses them more in her speech caught in difficulty since he was so much power may now or regionally he suspended the u.s. anti missile defense system in jordan however because of the continuous provocation from north korea and in recent nuclear threat posed by pyongyang yet no choice but
to install the u.s. anti-missile defense system into the korean soil and i think this is the situation that he's into so rhys's the he call for these is this is a no to evaluate more nuclear bomb into colin saw i think this is a basically the bottom line here is articulated yeah they've obviously drawn a line there what is south korea strategy think for dealing with this crisis they balancing their own interests and trying to sort of balance the interests of the u.s. as well what's your take. you know i think press of the morning he needs to a certain to my of north korea in the first stones now we used to be paid up old what is the motivation north north korea on this while we have a cam saying north korea is using these tears
a nuclear threat to bargain for more economic and financial resources poised on economic development sold out to pyongyang who continue to perpetuate now however on the other hand we have a pound saying that pyongyang is determined to defile up here weapons whatever the used the situation is so anyway this is the long term national development plan but i think the press the more he needs to determine these very clearly with china and russia what is the bottom line of north korea and if that the later scenario is korea that we do want to deploy a nuclear weapon north to south korea we need to work with russia and china to trying to come up with a package to rein in these nuclear program was pyongyang cute do you think that they will then if you say they need to work with china russia there might actually grade to this proposal from china and russia for that south korea to stop conducting its military was with the u.s.
and in return north korea would stop its nuclear program a missile test do you think that's a run or a potential way outta here. yeah i think this is a potential proposal to be pursued and i think now at the present because they already knew their u.s. anti-missile defense system already installed in the korean soil i think press the more so take this all into table with china and korea and negotiate with china and korea saying that a lot now we have these anti-missile system for now so if the we do want to withdraw this system from the korean soil don't china and russia has to come into this narrow more proactive piece although we will engage north korea to come into a program and package to try and rein in the nuclear program or. think north korea is open to negotiation open to conversation. it looks like unlikely because i think what. is your own
is aiming at is he to me he would he want to develop the nuclear program now if that is the case i think what we need in northeast asia is something like the you and do you in the middle east trying to make a similar program so that we could on one hand a cold one day north korea's nuclear ambition but on the other hand we need to contain it. we're going to get your thoughts one at a time we'll leave it there but that was dr park no one the same in politics and international relations at bath university thank you. now the u.s. senate has voted overwhelmingly against an amendment to the defense authorization act had it been passed america's foreign military interventions we do all have needed reauthorize ation by congress within six months the act was originally brought in shortly after nine eleven and has given the us the justification for
launching a number of tools in its global fight against terrorism it gives the american president the ability to use force against groups that have attacked the u.s. and his old timothy paved the way for more than sixteen years of conflict we discuss the matter with ron paul a former u.s. congressman and also father of rumpole the senate who is behind the amendment initiative he believes that the walls continue because they are profitable well i think what's happening is that. the pro-war group or solidified in congress their leadership always goes along their neo conservatives and they take this more aggressive foreign policy and constitution as the libertarians we are a minority and the media is entirely on the side of the neoconservatives and they represent you know the military industries and there's always an angolan people make money off a war and sometimes they say well we'll have
a little war we'll have a little cold war and this will help our profits and they don't intend it to go back further of us so often it gets out of control and actually the policy is totally out of control because here it is sixteen years in this ongoing wars over there and there's no no end in sight except we need to continue our efforts to wake up the american people so that thirty six votes turns into sixty six votes and then we put pressure on the media the person to represent us and present the truth. more people are joining artie's project nine hundred seventeen live which replays events around the russian revolution through twitter coelho the bestselling novelist says that our project is one of the most interesting experiments to appear on the social media network and now he'll be playing his part in it. what is twitter existed a hundred years ago.
