very warm welcome you're watching r.t. international with me mickey aaron good to have you with us this hour washington is downplaying its support for the kurds and threats from turkey of a military attack on kurdish positions inside syria and career is furious over what it sees as broken u.s. promises to stop backing syria's kurds are seen here regional correspondent. turkey isn't kidding around day after day it is pulling more tanks and more missiles more troops to the syrian border this is the pretty new to a new war a war within the u.s. led coalition should. now america's acknowledged it's established an army of terror along our country's border it's up to us to drown this army of terror before it is born. one of the reasons is america's new army
10:02 am
or border force which is what it was originally the u.s. led coalition told us in this letter that it was establishing a border security force an army of kurds the would patrol the border with turkey now that is preparing to invade the u.s. has done a one hundred eighty degree turn that entire situation has been missed but treat it as described some people misspoke we are not creating a border security force at all the story has changed it's not a new army or a border force it's thirty thousand troops that will be trained to prevent isis is return on paper for now and if turkey doesn't put a stop to it state department is now on overdrive you get the sense that they'll be bending over backwards for a valuable ally turkey is a very important value nato ally we have a lot of interactions with the turkish government as you probably know the foreign
10:03 am
minister of turkey is in vancouver right now where i believe he will be meeting or have some sort of a chat with secretary teller sent or at least some of our representatives later today so an important nato ally let's not kid around by all appearances america doesn't want to leave syria victory or no rex tillerson all but said so himself and that is the tragic twist to expend so many lives so much time and money to defeat isis we need to set the stage for another war a war within the anti isis coalition. a new leak from the found sea banks hacking group obtained by r.t. has raised questions about how do you ping cases were handled during the rio olympics in twenty sixteen only i discussed it with. so new leaks about the summer olympic games twenty sixteen and remember during before and after
10:04 am
rio the russian doping scandal was all over the news and that was when the and hire russian track and field team stayed home because of the band's well one i.o.c. e-mail exchange that we however can not confirm is real was about therapeutic use exemptions or to you now correct me if i'm wrong but is that when athletes to use banned substances for medical purposes yes if you're an athlete and you're sick and this case you may get permission to use medicines from the list of prohibited substances in a sense that is illegal doping but that requires a certificate and judging by some of these unverified e-mails as many as forty four such certificates were given out right during the time of the olympics and most of them just days before the olympics were over that's where all the finals are
10:05 am
happening but according to water rules the window between the time when the application is followed the next competition must be thirty days plus if we are to believe more of these on verified emails eight. from rio we're never entered into the universe so anti-doping database that is interesting have we had of any consequences we don't know but i can tell you that among proved to be a real mess if it indeed happened during the rio games and we know that it is the most high profile sporting event ever the summer olympics and also another e-mail that the fancy bears leaked was supposedly from a brazilian anti-doping professor about crucial flaws and the doping test bottles again it's an unfair. five email to the manufacture of the bottles from the times right before the beginning of the rio olympics did it with situation this
10:06 am
happened the rio twenty sixteen berlinger bottles seem not all to be stand it did not fit the. force in them resulted in breakage of the cap and sometimes it can be used to close the able to look after our coaching e.g. photos you know just bowling have a record of this kind of non-conformity so nicky opening the bottles could cause damage according to dr ratner if the emails are real but this is the point when i want to go back to all the russian winter olympic athletes that were banned the head of the winter olympic games in korea besides the testimonies and besides all the things that the main. whistleblower grigori watching of was saying the cornerstone element of the i.o.c. evidence or basically the only forensic evidence was the damage on the bottles or the scratches on the ones that were used in saatchi and the question i want to know
10:07 am
is whether both those at the center of suspicion insult by that same company yes they were produced by burger that was providing the anti-doping officials with equipment for as well however neither the mcclaren team nor the investigators there were appointed by the international olympic committee have ever shown us the visual results of their experiments and we were constantly told that the bottle technology is flawless but what if it isn't. one of france's most notorious prisons within two hundred guards go on strike over security concerns at the jail. good. yes. following the strike almost one hundred twenty inmates refused to return to their cells the
10:08 am
prison is reputed to be a hotbed of islamic extremism among the inmates is the largest who is behind the deadly powers attacks of the twenty fifth the it's not the first strike to hit a french prison this week with guards fearing for their safety elsewhere to. look for you our work is very dangerous where we have aggression and. experience in ireland which is not taken into consideration by the government. it has become more and more difficult for us to act i've seen physical aggression towards my colleagues every day it happens every time we are. supported. we denounce the working in addition of our colleagues in the prison the security conditions the numerous acts of aggression against them we want salaries to be increased for those who face such risks of work as well as an increase in personnel and better security french justice minister nicole bello they met with a number of prison workers on tuesday she outlined
10:09 am
a ten point plan to improve working conditions among the points she highlighted more star better equipment and a new director for the discussion on the issue has also been shadowed from march. twelve activists in the californian city of alcohol on may now face jail after they were caught trying to feed homeless people in a park according to current legislation it's illegal to share food in public places . for at this point so how do you feel like. you know we are out of it you know. the ban on public food sharing in alcohol was introduced back in october last year as a precaution against an outbreak of infectious hepatitis a the penalty for breaking the law can be up to a thousand dollar fine or even a six month jail term. we talked to the activists who were called by police they
10:10 am
claim the legislation has the opposite effect of what it's meant to the homeless people who were there were very things fall that we were standing up and they were very upset that the mayor in the city council members could pass such a heartless ordinance and none of those government officials come out to the park and talk to those people it really seems like this is part of the city for to realize homelessness they've already made me that against the law to panhandle to sleep on the sidewalk so this is really like the next thing in trying to push the homeless out of their city and the big justification that they use was the happening outbreak in the indiegogo and they say all the parkers the parks are contaminated with hepatitis a that we don't want the homeless people to catch and so are trying to protect them but everybody else can still go and have a party at the park and share food with each other and they wrote that into the ordinance and that's what makes it discriminatory because it targets. everybody
10:11 am
else is not magically immune from have to try to stay within the same space so clearly there are this is not about hepatitis a and the mayor has made comments in public session at the city council meetings where he has said we're trying to make the park less inviting to homeless people and recent reports on human rights by the un outlines the difficulties homeless people currently face in america. an average of seven to eight hundred people every single day. congress has reached an agreement on tax legislation that will deliver more to higher wages and massive tax relief.
10:12 am
since the recession we have not recovered the homeless homelessness has actually increased there's a problem with high property values air b.n. b. as fine a focal properties and evicting the tenants the mayor of alcohol would like everyone to think that all homeless people are drug addicts and that is absolutely not the case we have a very high percentage of our homeless are veterans we have a high percentage of people who are working in this growing criminalization of people who are poor and powerless. really is also a bigger problem with the mass incarceration of if that happens in our country where we have for profit prisons with companies making money off of jailing people . that's not return to our top story this hour washington is downplaying its support for the cuts amid threats from turkey of a military attack on to kurdish positions inside syria is furious over what it sees
10:13 am
as broken u.s. promises to stop backing syria's kurds we can discuss this further with guest bill hunter the jell an expert on the kurdish question and welcome to the program is very good to have you with us do you think that someone at the pentagon that put out the wrong message by mistake will as secretary of state now claims that you think rex tillerson is simply trying to create some damage limitation here. well i think we need to argue the turkish reaction against the side in policy from the very beginning of at the time of the dutch attack to the region so. turkey usually talks about there is there there is a threat to its territorial security and usually complaining about its own kurdish question within the country and in the region and as far as we know as much as we witness so far the side and democratic forces at the north so far
10:14 am
never form any friend to the turkish regime so turkey. hasn't got any legal basis hasn't got any international legal base or political base. to claim that the side and democratic forces form in africa the turkish regime at all and in terms of the international policies and the global powers we see that every politician is themselves according to the changes changeable dynamics in the region after the passion gone and after after the kurds paid a heavy price and the most effective power fighting against isis in the region. even if still there is a threat by the islamist extremism and religious terrorist organizations. try to reposition itself and have a have
10:15 am
a political ground for its own nation interest so i would say nato or for us a. top three to actually turkey state as a spoiled child turkey should behave itself otherwise the new war might come up to the region. come out to the region completely this is stabilize the region and bring up more issues which is going to be. really difficult to respect the region turkey has been concentrating his forces on the syrian border me some people might say that a military confrontation at this point is inevitable and most importantly what would the consequences of an attack on the kurds be if turkey should go ahead. well i think turkey a on one hand and a psychological war on not just regional dynamics on the global powers as well as the entire nation psychological. war running by turkish authorities and saying
10:16 am
we're going to get into the side or within the side or. as i said at if such an action taken place if turkish. military power completely move into the northern side i think. the consequence is going to be much more dreadful than what we think right now because there's a fifty million kurds living in in the middle east turkey it's kurdish question twenty million kurds living in turkey i don't think it is going to be accepted by the kurdish. organization none of them at all. it is not going to be accepted by the region. by some regional dynamics as well if turkey claiming that some kurdish organizations form an effort to its territory a secular rooty then we might put forward an idea say in turkey itself form an f.
10:17 am
rat to the territory of the site and regime and i don't think it is going to be settled by the syrian regime as well. at the mean time. we have to look at the recent developments of what happened to place in the middle east i think it was it was a very good idea when russia india and turkey come together and try to sort out problem test that is the first step and the second step is the second step is turkey from the very beginning of. dosh come into the middle east from the very beginning turkey trained and armed terrorist organization and we've got the solid evidence we've got a constraint evidences turkey. into the into the international war crimes. i don't think i. i don't i don't think the global power shoots out to get into the site i don't think. or russia or us a. bear
10:18 am
to get into the northern side i talked to the kurds and he's very much in the telling i'm sorry to interrupt you that we're all out of time i do apologize belong to and tell expert on the kurdish question thank you for your time thank you for those come on oxy international twitter is preparing a brand new tool to alert you says about russian trolls we have more on that in just a few moments. but politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be present. with some want to be rich. if you'd like to be press this is what. three or four people. interested in the water. should.
10:19 am
i played for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside out. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each kill you narrowness and spending two to twenty million on one player. it's an experience like nothing else not to because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game but great so one more chance for. a nice minute. welcome back social media giant twitter facebook and again being grilled over alleged russian into ferentz in the us presidential election i'm assuming that none
10:20 am
of you have any doubt that the russians meddled in our two thousand sixteen election and attacked our democracy and you question. you know only the latest u.s. senate haring the three social media giants have participated in this time around twitter also announced it was preparing a tool to warn users about russian trolls the idea has already sparked concern over just how trolls will actually be identified and if daniel hawkins takes a closer look. this time they've been grilled at a u.s. senate committee session about dealing with terrorist content and other dangerous materials a letter that i wrote calling these companies to individual inform all users who are exposed to false misleading and inflammatory post generated by russian agents we will be working to identify and inform individually the users who may have been
10:21 am
exposed to the ira accounts during the election now facebook already enables users to check if they've been exposed to russian bots and trolls from an apparent russian troll factory named the internet research engine see which is so division and mistrust back in twenty sixteen fair enough if you buy the russian election meddling narrative but it doesn't stop there now it seems twitter is going down the same road we don't yet know the full details of how this will work but in a hidden recording to cover journalist group project veritas allegedly discovered how exactly twitter picked out other apparent bots. it's good to read. this again though what you. guys. really. was. for sure but we have requested comment from twitter can they
10:22 am
confirm that the top aimed at tackling and identifying these kremlin trolls is one hundred percent perfect. what he supposed to do in the case of a mistake or the company has previously stated people in similar recordings didn't represent official views project veritas of course themselves have in the past been at the center of controversy as a result of their methods for tackling bots is all well and good but what about targeting opinions that are controversial unsavory or unfavorable nineteen eighty-four anyone. so next time you're browsing social media and come across material that may go
10:23 am
against the grain don't overthink things the platform itself will give you a heads up what to believe or not. now switzerland may not be part of the e.u. but it's moving one step closer to staging its own version of gregg's it this with people's party o.s.t.p. has received permission to collect signatures in support of a referendum to end the country's free movement agreement with the european bloc which could see switzerland take back full control over immigration matters at the moment to open border policies allow e.u. citizens to live and work freely in switzerland and vice versa i asked b.p. has until july next year to collect one hundred thousand signatures if successful the proposal will be considered by the government and parliament and burn before being put to a vote the co-president of the youth wing of the s.p.p. is convinced the public would vote in favor of stopping free movement you are the
10:24 am
biggest party in switzerland you are the strongest party and we have made a lot of initiatives and in two thousand and fourteen this was people's party has launched that initiative against mass immigration so why shouldn't it work a second time and i'm sure this was people will go vote for that initiative that we can stop their tree movement to deal with the european union. after weeks of anticipation donald trump announced the winners of his so-called fake news awards interest was so high the website containing the results collapsed in the first few minutes. information that was false and interface and never happened got released to the public i'm against the people that make up stories i'm not going to give you a good idea should you speak out if you are shaky do. nothing
10:25 am
gives you more credibility than donald trump calling the lawyer and i of course don't want to get why i think our special effects team are made to look like the presenter of the paper towels a watering pot. or
10:26 am
get in touch and tell us what you think on the day stories by following goes on social media i'll be back with all the latest news headlines of the top of the hour i'll see that. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turned some countries into pigs. these are the countries with we korea colonies that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow gloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline off to almost a decade how good are the results she saw all of it during peaceful by the people
10:27 am
gathered in which the wider world get people to see what i joined a choice to be in full view she had to still claim what was i mean to for legal. challenge must be more than this she did not was always think of it she's not there and i'm getting her back. while the same measure is still in place who one of the consequences is to weaken blue bird flu disputable who will first be one of the slew truthy consider this is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision maker. here's what people have been saying about rejecting the night with you i suspect it's full on awesome for all of that the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch oh yeah mr john oliver of harvey americans do the same thing we are apparently better than two thousand years better to see people you never heard of
10:28 am
love redacted tonight you're not the president of the world bank so take their money go write me seriously send us an e-mail join me every thursday on the alex salmond shill and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. i america this is because reports there's max talk about ilan mosque but first i want to talk about a little story that has happened to me. over the past few days because i was waiting for fed ex package and this fed ex package was
10:29 am
they fail to deliver over and over and over again and i went to twitter and i said why is fedex so horrible and why do we always have a good experience with u.p.s. u.p.s. is always really nice we see them in our neighborhood delivering all these amazon packages and blah blah blah and it turns out people said u.p.s. is fully unionized and they all have benefits and you know stable you know schedules and stuff like that all the fedex guys are. their private contractors they have no rights no negotiating power or anything and i visibly saw that in my own experience i had no idea here's a headline for mother jones from two thousand and ten it says fed ex versus u.p.s. on unionization there was actually a big battle all the fedex people were trying to get unionized because they fall under different labor rights relations because they started as an aircrew air delivery service rather than ground delivery service they can unite so i truly had
10:30 am
no idea that we have been unionized and fed ex not but in my own experience it was just this like complete nightmare we had a experience last year with fed ex as well you who member that they've lost a package so just my own personal experience without knowing anything just an interaction with these two corporations the experience. compared to what is the fact for the workers showed up on my own personal experience with them that's real anecdotal evidence on the ground research and what it's so if you gleaned from this i gleaned that how your workers feel genuinely impacts your brand whether you know the shareholders at fed ex of course want the company to maximize profit get as much profit out of every single worker pay their workers as little as possible but when you're interacting on it you know.
