. you're watching our 2 international bring you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. faced with a barrage of criticism from the international community turkey says it won't halt its military operation against the kurds in northeast syria as a president and one had to say. for those who have told mr trump and others too if you're going to stop this stop it but you haven't stopped to discuss the route takes matters into our own hands we won't take a step back and we will continue this fight into the terrorists driven further south from the 32 kilometer border. to. turkey's incursion into syria it was launched on wednesday after donald trump announced he was withdrawing u.s. troops from the area 2 border towns have been the main targets despite the official
8:02 am
u.s. exit an american border patrol was reportedly seen on friday near tel aviv at the pentagon also says its troops came under turkish fire near combining another border town but no one was hurt. the turkish military operation has been widely condemned especially by those who see president ellen terms decision to pull u.s. troops from the region as a betrayal of allies but stateside attitudes to the kurdish forces seem a little confused explains the kurds a hero's shout the people who couldn't point out on the map where the kurds live brave say the people who never have and never would fight alongside them how how could trump betray them say the people who couldn't care less about. it's just fashionable these days playing the card using them to get attention for pathetic little political games where is the honesty
8:03 am
is the truth. well let's try c.n.n. in this case you're looking at not only betraying the kurds and betraying some of our other allies in the gulf region what the president has done to the kurds the betrayal of the kurds to be butchered by the turks. are the ground forces that destroyed the caliphate with american air power we've abandoned them there breaks my heart the message is clear c.n.n. stand by the kurds or well rather some cnn's other cnn's want those terrible kurdish terrorists stamped out as soon as possible to send out to people who are sure to see an end right now on the frontier of the border point you saw was one of the 1st targets of the p.k. k. terrorist organization as you can see at that point there was a huge explosion that area is in the hands of the p.k. k.
8:04 am
terrorist organization and we see an end price of the boundary approximately 70 meters away in the areas that you see around us all of them are in the hands of the p.k. k. terrorist organization absolutely remarkable c.n.n. turk license is the name on the condition that they adhere to c.n.n. strict journalism standards so how how did the same journalistic standards end with one c.n.n. almost worshiping kurds and the other c.n.n. all but cheering their deaths but come on. picking an easy targets what sane person trust journalists these days scratch the journalists what about celebrities with their newfound admiration for kurds surely this sincere i want you to ask can there is blood on anyone's hand starting with has
8:05 am
a president trying to is letting this happen because these people are being slaughtered after standing with our troops in the middle east for extremely long time fighting against terrorists powerful words from the daughter of the late john mccain like father like daughter but i've been so mad this morning and so upset about this news that we are abandoning our kurdish allies in the middle east these are allies of ours that american soldiers are still continuing to fight alongside all we did was arm them and they fought for america and to everyone in the white house and every republican who was mad that president obama pulled out of iraq you unpatriotic cowards that feckless unpatriotic callid is also your daddy meghan or have you not seen this photo there is your father and next to him is syrian rebel commander general salim idriss who your daddy did his best
8:06 am
and train who is now eradicating the kurds we are ready for the operation to the east of the free t. s. these lands are currently under the control of the syrian democratic forces group which includes the kurdistan workers party ringleaders these terrorists occupying our homes but c'mon meghan mccain isn't john mccain she may have reason to fame entirely for being his daughter that doesn't mean she have different opinions again last example justify this contradicting yourself we destroyed. i says with the help of the kurds we can't abandon the kurds now we can't turn it over to turkey to think that will work is really all oh really mr graham seems like there's 2 possibilities either the senator really supports the kurds with his heart or he's just another spineless hypocrite using the kurds to score cheap
8:07 am
political points in case you're on the fence enjoy this it's the recording of a righteous senator speaking to pranksters who pretended to be the turkish minister of defense your y.p. gee kurdish problem is a real problem i told pros to trump obama made a huge mistake and relying on the why p.g. kurds everything are worried about it come true and now we've got to make sure that turkey is protected from the spirit in syria sympathetic to the white p.g. problem and those to prosper quite frankly it honestly seems like principles and integrity going extinct i feel sorry for you abandoned by your allies facing invasion death and on top of all of that every 2 faced hypocrite has called out from under the rocks to use your hurt
8:08 am
your pain your suffering for their own pathetic advantage. and in your book a former n.b.c. news employee details the difficulties he faced trying to get the network to run a sexual abuse exposé on unfair accuse the channel of trying to kill his 2017 investigation into the now disgraced high when producer harvey weinstein and claims to that even her clinton did her best to get in the way come up and has the details . harvey weinstein the man who triggered the me too movement for more disturbing accusations emerged about hollywood executives are the one seen the most powerful man in the hollywood was a serial predator up to 67 and snoozers ranging from inappropriate touching to rape they've been sexually assaulted by this monster is terrible terrible advantage disgusting even the former 1st lady couldn't stay away because women stick together i was shocked and appalled i was just sick i was shocked i was
8:09 am
appalled the issue really is how terrible his behavior was and finally women have come forward to speak out about it this almost became a story that could have been because the investigation into weinstein and the rape allegations was almost killed by a channel that considers itself to be a beacon of women's rights there has been no clear example this year of journalism's ability to change the world training films do almost nothing to stop the harassment when it comes to women and sexual harassment in a topic you know i care a lot about it appears need to movement has finally hit wall street ronan farrow a pulitzer winning journalist says that n.b.c. wanted to end his investigation they ordered a hard stop to reporting they told me and a producer working on this that we should not take a single call they told us to cancel interviews the question for years has been why why because the network got a call from
8:10 am
a certain harvey yes the same harvey harvey weinstein who threatened to expose matt lauer's nefarious activities if the story saw the light of day well it did anyway and farrow went to the new yorker and even wrote a book catch and kill weinstein made it known to the network that he was a well behaved and capable of revealing it and it looks like hillary clinton didn't want pharaoh's investigation to be published either her of all people hillary clinton had scheduled an interview all of us at the high. weinstein reporting and her folks got in touch and said we're working on a big story sounded very concerned and tried to cancel that interview over the weinstein over the weinstein stuff errol claims that clinton's publicist approached him and pressured him to drop the story and what he says was weinstein's behest clinton's press people tried to distance themselves from the scandal. i genuinely respect ronan's work but have no idea what weinstein was saying to people to save himself what i do know is simple i've already rejected the weinstein co proposed
8:11 am
dawk how about the election before talking to if i misrepresented facts it wouldn't be the 1st time n.b.c. denied any wrongdoing n.b.c. news signed the harvey weinstein's story to ronen we completely supported it over many months with resources both financial and editorial after 7 months without one victim witness on the record he simply didn't have a story that mess our standard for broadcast nor that of any major news organization. now for n.b.c. to say that ronan farrow didn't have a story has got to be embarrassing at this point not only did he expose the rich and powerful but he got a pulitzer prize for doing it makes you wonder if news outlets ditch their principles when the powerful start pressing i think his words can entirely be trusted i think what we're seeing right now is just the advancement of fake news in america you know it's like the president said just last week it's no longer fake
8:12 am
news it's now corrupt news and n.b.c. has jumped right on that train you would think that these liberals would be all about this being that they preach social justice and feminism and women's rights but the reality is that these people have deep pockets i think that hillary clinton is only about women's rights when it's convenient for her so when you have somebody like weinstein who is able to contribute to the democratic party and able to you know have the media in his pockets because of the amount of money he has the agenda for these democrats goes out the window we've been shown this time and time again that money talks over policy so they can pretend that the policy is something that they want it here too but the reality is when their friends have money and their friends can finance their campaigns and finance their agendas they play dirty and i think hillary clinton's about as dirty as they come she's right down there with harvey weinstein. your voice and even tattoos are just some of the new ways that
8:13 am
the u.s. government will be able to identify you it's building a new system called the homeland advance recognition technology system or heart for short currently people are identified by fingerprints and face and scans the new system will house the data of hundreds of millions of people and bring more processing power to homeland security's biometric operations the heart network will share information with external partners among them amazon biometric data from the new system that will be moved to the amazon cloud. this already hosted for the cia and the department of defense and nasa and amazon can already record video and audio via doorbells the alexa device and the nest home security system and everybody is happy about the new arrangement. terrible move to transfer anything like this to amazon cloud are you kidding me d.h. as an f.b.i. stop this i sure hope d.h. encrypted people's data before putting on to amazon servers hackers could easily
8:14 am
search or steal data we've got the thoughts of the us libertarian presidential candidate as well as the views of a digital specialist. i can look at the system and say is this really geared towards things like terrorism or is this really just geared towards imprisoning lower classes for minor crimes like drug use these types of technologies have historically been used to micromanage non-crimes and basically profiting private prisons and police unions they've been used in my command these non-crimes instead of doing anything to keep americans actually safer there are many ways that such technology could be used in ways that follow the 4th amendment that have massive privacy protections that make sure that they are not violating people's natural right to privacy and dignity this government is choosing to use this technology in a way that violates the 4th amendment this is being hosted on on the amazon network and to me this is a significant thing because it is a choice that amazon has made to support this kind of morally dubious
8:15 am
unconstitutional type of warrantless searches heard of what is happening here is i think technology and its use is a stripping our ability to manage it and i think that's part of what is happening now people looking at social networks and saying should we try and manage them or should there be some restrictions on what they can actually do with this stuff it's it's a huge huge issue i think we are going into a new one i'm starting territory where we're getting it really unique privacy issues unfolding people are always trying to figure out how to do things to get around regulations or issues that have been put in place and when it comes to the race between technology and those trying to regulate this technology computer savvy people always when this is sort of a continual cat and most game you never really know how it's going to end up this is different because this is by no metric dated whether it's your d.n.a. whether it's the facial skin whether it's a fingerprint you know this is something different because it is
8:16 am
a very unique see richard which is unique to particular person and it might not actually be possible to hide. or alter that information with oh you know cecil disfiguration. still to come on the program a violent protest triggered by an i.m.f. impose austerity and to their tense day in the ecuadorian capital the details on that story and more after the break.
8:17 am
we've got a crumbling infrastructure roads bridges tunnels are not working we've got students that are in massively in debt and probably will never add to the productivity of society all because of this. propaganda that debt doesn't matter we just know it to ourselves. you're watching our to international welcome back the ongoing syrian crisis
8:18 am
russia's middle east policy and economic ties with arab countries these are just some of the topics touched upon in a far ranging interview given by vladimir putin to r.t. arabic bia and sky news arabia that's head of the russian present state visits to saudi arabia and the united arab emirates here's a short preview. they stepped out of the wood still fast if anyone thinks that seizing tank is an attacking oil infrastructure can in any way affect cooperation between russia and iran friends saudi arabia and the u.a.e. they can undermine or break down our cooperation with opec plus then they are profoundly wrong so. big country like iran which has existed on its territory for thousands of years it has its own interests potions and iranians have lived here for centuries and we should respect those interests. but as our butts of which if you are so you need to have dialogue to understand each other to puzzle out all the nuances intricacies and issues without dialogue you cannot solve any
8:19 am
problem that is why i think i can share the concerns of the u.a.e. and saudi arabia but in the case of bilateral issues it is up to them to resolve them which is to say you. total the forces deployed illegitimately inside any sovereign state in this case syria must leave this is true to everyone if syria's new illegitimate government chooses to say that they have no more need for russia's military presence in this way just as true for russia right now we are discussing this openly with all our partners including iran and turkey and we spoke about it with our american partners many times and i will be open with you as i have been with my counterparts in syria must be free from other states military presence and the territorial integrity of the syrian arab republic must be completely restored. shuttle do you work for russia today don't you while it is because of people like you that russia were accused of meddling in the election of the posts.
8:20 am
we'll be showing that interview in full throughout the day tomorrow on r.t. also be able to watch it at our website r.t. dot com. there have been more violent clashes in epidaurus capital which has been in the grip of anti austerity protests for over a week now spearheading the rallies are indigenous ecuadorians who continue to converge on quito one of their demands is that the country's president overturns his cuts to full fuel subsidies that were implemented as part of a loan deal with the international monetary fund. i guess another day of protests and violence here on the streets of quito as riot police clashed with protesters specially with members of the indigenous communities that came here to tito from all around the country.
8:21 am
where. hundreds of indigenous people came from all across the country to join the large group that has been camping in the city center for the days this new group came from the amazonian region to shoot shoot shoot and was well organized and ready to clash with police forces and that's what they did 1st in old town quito and then they surrounded the national assembly and again dozens of injured on both sides president lenin marino hasn't moved an inch and remains firm on implementing his economic measures merino did propose direct talks with indigenous leaders but for now these a stand in the ground and say they will be no talks as long as the president doesn't provoke his economic plan so many here it's time for the president to step down they are here killing people it is unjust lenin miranda should resign we mourn
8:22 am
the people who. or not with us the president can't govern like this to he's practically turned into a dictator or shooting people indiscriminately it can go on like this international organizations are calling for both sides to scale down the violence and start a serious dialogue but for now these calls haven't been heard now ecuadorians they have great hope in dialogue peaceful solution to the country's worst crisis in decades nicholas o'donovan take. the international monetary fund has weighed in on the debate over climate change advisor nations to increase carbon taxes to limit global warming to 2 degrees or less the level deemed safe by science large emitting countries need to take action for example they should introduce
8:23 am
a carbon tax set to rise quickly to $75.00 a tonne in 2030 now the i.m.f. added though that it will be the public who will have to foot the bill they say electric bills could on average go up by 43 percent over the next decade and take costs would go up most in court relying countries but let's look at the impact on europeans in particular now as you can see here in the u.k. france and germany electricity bills will on average go up by a 3rd we asked people in these countries if they were willing to pay more for a greener environment. i think it's very unfair to a hobby system which is build on fossil fuels which is built to exploit the planet and then to basically made individuals in a neo liberal logic pay for it we actually already pay too much taxes for things i would say even nonsense but often we depend on the ring come for those special role
8:24 am
so i can see why the prices should go up but if you do that there has to be support for the people at the bottom the corn to food it going that's a good way of approaching climate change aspect of things yeah i think so because we're going to amend their utilities to securely in my opinion the risk is that wealthy people would pay just more money for the bells while people would an average salary would be put in a difficult situation for me it's not a practical solution except of course it's not a fact if not everyone can pay everyone can go for it for me it's a bit difficult because i live alone. in fact as long as major countries who do nothing at national or international level i believe not as much would change at individual level unfortunately. that's our global news wrap up for now but i'll be back at the top the hour with the latest thanks for telling it.
