a problem with justice just one system was the problem but one seven hundred twelve have a problem with justice it's just as the has the problems in this case the spanish justice system and not the some one hundred twelve because this has never been seen and you know at least in the democratic you remember going to everybody. this is a great surprise this has never happened here more than seven hundred my united this is why they have called this meeting our unanimous petition is to act together that our priority is to work to guarantee as a referendum polish prosecutor's office also annoyance that will seize any printed material relating to the election along with the ballot boxes authorities were also granted permission to take action against any individuals or groups promoting the referendum dorgan isolation supporting the leave campaign are now regarded as on lawful anyone following guilt the face up to eight years in prison twenty in europe from public office well there were mass gatherings as people voiced their desire to

one when it is to try to calm things down. by respecting and result and by you respect the. free will of the people. now if you've ever wondered is there life after losing a presidential election hillary clinton the showing there is nearly a year after her shock defeat to donald trump she's released a book called what happened aside from a few personal touches on it and said to explain what real role did her campaign through in more than a few accusations at people countries organizations which she said cost her the chance of becoming america's first female president our washington correspondents and your account picks up this. 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 thousand and sixteen when she suffered an unexpected defeat to reality star donald trump. and it seems like she's compiled quite the lists of exactly who and what to blame or says that word to work in two thousand and sixteen russian wiki leaks are pressed by and herrick. nothing from the democratic party not a democrat jim tolley's letter to my primary opponent and a lot of. sexism and. resentment the stereotype. a lot of people didn't want to hear my plans. for an even more detailed explanation of 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. 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 material 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 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 and 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. on our two washington d.c. another interesting aspect in the book clinton goes on to compare herself to occur
from the front to see t.v. game of thrones with people online i'm able to resist picking up on it. they shouted guilty guilty like they really just salads and game chanting shame shame well so see lannister i walked back there and keep. the state police in the mind a. place to stay no matter. what that. having said all this why aren't i tried to have my.
did you make another mistake sure so to lose the election without any of the other things. i will say tell me that. you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of the core of . every loser. isn't it. basically you saying that there's there's nothing you're going to do differently as a way to try to win over his supporters. and let's start from that premise for losing the people. here have the people who think like a. small schoolhouse cold
a wave of hoax boehm threats in the capital and other russian cities telephone terrorism the russian special services are investigating who's responsible more than one hundred thousand people were affected in mosques of occupations over the past week nichiren explains. wave of evacuations across russia due to these bomb scares are not just talking about a few cities in one region of russia we're talking about cities across the country it's an immense scale and affecting some one hundred thirty thousand people just in the past two days as four hundred twenty buildings had to be evacuated and what has been an increasingly peculiar week all kicked off on sunday morning in the west siberian city of they received a bomb scare that that evening another bomb scare was reported in the central russian city of resigning from that it's just snowballed and now so far these bomb scares have been reported in almost thirty cities and it's still ongoing but targeting areas with high densities of people we're talking about schools shopping
malls cinemas bus and train stations and in the subsequent searches no explosive materials or suspicious paraphernalia has been found but what they've been very successful in doing is creating mayhem panic and disorder in these areas with large numbers of people thus far it remains a mystery as to who will water is behind these hoax calls it's believed that the thirds are being made enormous anonymously through internet phone calls and the latest theory we have. coming from sources citing revulsed the russian international news agency are that these calls have been traced to numbers coming from abroad and the individuals responsible have links to i so these are unconfirmed at this point there are other theories circulating such as these phone calls a part of some kind of drew there's also the possibility or very that this is a virus but of course there's also the theory that this is just
a prank still intent on creating as much panic and disruption as possible in an investigation is under way to get to the bottom of this and then maybe we'll find out what's really the case. the turkish president riling his nato allies after buying. about some monkey stories about ninety seconds times they want us. to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. to go on to be this is what the three of them will be good. interested always in the water.
in the first attack terrorists opened fire on a restaurant on a highway linking de car province with. shortly after the two suicide bombers one of whom was driving a car 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 in there were many in pilgrims. moving on turkey's president order one has shrugged off nato as concerns over un chris purchase of a russian missile defense system he's saying is that his country is taking care of itself and its security to look good they weren't crazy because we made the s. four hundred agreement what we supposed to do wait for them we've taken precautions and will continue to take precautions when it comes to our security and we'll fend for ourselves who'll take matters into our own hands there's no other way according
to the manufacturers the s four hundred can shoot done up to eighty targets all the time and has a range of around four hundred kilometers the deal is proving to be a worry for nato as it sees the new system is not compatible with its equipment in the country and nato interoperable missile defense system remains the best option to defend turkey from the full range of threats in its region. well a point to note here is that germany a leading member of nato has restricted sales to turkey that decision may have been a factor in the country's choice unless we spoke to say i have been left with little choice but to shop around even if it means roughly. turkey and ankara have to decide on which side they're on but i think the recent government and you know erdogan. behavior has become a little bit volatile and unstable for the region and i think his idea of defying the west does generate concerns and even though he is right he has the right to
decide from what country he will buy weapons he also has to understand he's part of an alliance and that he has to respect certain rules and also regulations that go beyond the fact that he has the right to buy weapons from any country that he chooses russia is not the alternative to nato if there is to fall what turkey is doing search for. defense needs to be and contras because of political reasons can. bring. the embargo. it does not have from. the. government that's before it's over the target has to show some restraint and some stability in order for those embargoes to be lifted it doesn't make any sense if turkey by i think now then it is their problem it is not all time at their once again i undermine this. misunderstanding america remains for turkey the number one security partner so russia is now
a possible new partner for certain defense systems yes but if that is true if the u.s. is the number one partners security council you can be dealing weapons with a country that is not friendly to the u.s. . just a minute the russians are namor. turkey cannot make promises to cause some of the most liked and commented on not this is our namor well staying with nato the us is building up its presence in poland with more than a thousand military vehicles all of them four hundred are tracked including nearly two hundred tanks on an entire infantry division as part of the existing nato force in eastern europe well the us a general that's heading up the european deployment it is in response to drills which start today between russia and bella ruse adding now the deal is needed to allow the free movement of troops across europe similar
to the. open border shann going agreement that would allow u.s. units to deploy on nato members territory without the country's direct permission but only five members are said to be idea meanwhile american troops are also taking part in sweden's biggest military drills in more than twenty years seventeen is taking place on an island in the middle of the baltic sea. and why the neutral nation feels the need for such large scale 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. disk of economics 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 deem i 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 media france and thiago r.t. well a swedish peace activist we spoke to believes the country risks becoming dangerously militarized because of its tallies with nato. people are upset with the military dream because it's one more step towards militarization of our foreign
politics and adding one extra very dangerous component which is nato there's no scale that is necessary according to me. it will be twenty thousand to ten thousand is not really the question i would say that military exercises do not make so make of it make us safer i think that we are going in the wrong direction i would say that there is a large group for need to in sweden i mean there is a lot of money to be made from armaments there's a lot of money to be made from getting closer to nato there's a lot of political careers that can be done from playing on the threats. r.t. international live from moscow remember the top stories of the day can always be found on our facebook page why not leave your thoughts there in any of the events shaping the world this thursday and i'll see you and.
here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us actually just full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch at least yampa is the john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are apparently better than food. and see people you never heard of love back to the night not the president of the world bank though kate. sent us an e-mail. desperate for a single purpose. a super. star training very young. a months of intensive school.
reps. and they saved lives. this is the concert report you know america can spend money on infrastructure projects before things get blown up you know you don't have to wait for let's say. buildings to get destroyed by bombs before you do infrastructure projects you can anticipate that the infrastructure might be collapsing that you need to do stuff right so you say well of course the hurricane hits and one can never really quite
prepare for that everything is devastated and a lot of people like paul krugman will say well this is a great disaster capitalism with all sorts of you know booming economy because everybody down in houston for example after hurricane harvey thousands and thousands of cars have been destroyed so thousands and thousands of cars will have to be bought and that's supposed to be g.d.p. booster so in terms of infrastructure spend however that is now in sort of beyond disaster capitalism in america we have a sort of private equity vulture fund model whereby everybody just wants to extract all the equity so it seems like both the public and private sector with these headlines are going to go into here have basically given up on building anything for the future they don't see any sort of long term future here and like china with their one belt one road policy across.
