maybe thirty minutes maybe not so much accumulated if had been there a couple of hours obviously a lot more could have accumulated in that case if the airplane was not sprayed with the icing fluid there would be a more serious. result you know so the fact that the airplane became airborne and climbed to six thousand feet tells me that probably the airplane was in pretty good shape at the time of the takeoff we're dealing with a great great tragedy i feel very badly communicated in such a context with the tragedy there are common protocol for an investigation through various aspects security and safety factor. a few things really briefly would be the structural integrity of the aircraft the fuselage the engines and so on then you look at energy. for the engine things that are. really. external to an

12:34 pm
a new insurgency if iraq is not built rebuilt quickly. the sunni population are already marginalized by the shia led government and they're actually in the previous some years they're led to the insurgency and i.s.i. . is on there now there's another group recently you have somebody or the other group of them are doing just like i yes i yes and some part of. it i saw. them suffer another insurgency there at mid r.v.o. years and years to me this is all the god if the iraqi government has other boys do we rebuild these sunni areas which were badly destroyed during this fight. russian athletes have won their second medal at the winter olympics in south korea and so far in the figure skating with canada getting gold and the u.s. coming in third day three has seen seven sets of medals handed out and there's
12:35 pm
still ski jumping biassed long and speed skating among other sports ahead today as well as the competitive side there's also the social aspect to the games with most nations hosting their own hospitality houses as they're known russia of course isn't officially represented at the lympics but there's still a corner of p. and chang that feels very much russian as the train code has been finding out. as usual there are all kinds of national houses at the olympics and young chang the likes of the hall and house near the coast the countries like austria and switzerland naturally settled a bit higher in the mountains and since team russia doesn't officially exist here the traditional russian house doesn't either or isn't that immature or sca. to make sure russian fans have a home in korea it took
12:36 pm
a few tricks after all the i.o.c. must be respected the place is called the sports house obviously you find wide blue and red in the design but never specifically and the recognizable pattern like here's white and black in between what could appear to be flag stripes no official russian symbols the mentors because i haven't become official right other than that pure i ration fun and spirit. among the attractions here are these hockey jerseys from every year at the olympics that russia has long goals but on this one from nine hundred ninety two like here
12:37 pm
in korea you won't find the letters russia or the u.s.s.r. i will ask the guests if they know why and why did russia compete under a neutral flag at the olympics twenty six years ago and see money was on own voice simply. was increased. and i don't know sorry. i don't know just i got some clues for you countries take turns with the y. . i mean respect to the i.o.c. saying it was essential you know why not i think it's. funny i meant arguing over that patton as in the same reason. that. told me i don't think so no i think it's. the nerd. disturbances a country so being unique left russia was just established as a country that's when the soviet union. had its break up
12:38 pm
so neutral flags weren't always down to the i.o.c. sanctions. have a drink go our tea young chang. even travelling to see one of the world's largest sporting events can prove to be challenging especially with similar sounding korean cities on everyone's lips. plan to.
12:39 pm
go for my terrorist suspects blows the whistle on security failings at london's busiest airports the story on the roll off to the break. i put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and. somehow want to. achieve like the press was like
12:40 pm
before three of the more people. i mean first of all there's a milwaukee. tens of billions hundreds of billions probably a trillion dollars of u.s. government subsidies the energy industry can subsidize mining. rather cryptic currencies and put those into while it's called american citizens have an automatic wallet. and they can get a. monthly airdrop. that they can then. the government can do that. welcome back now the world's second busiest airport in london heathrow in the u.k. is being accused of lax security a former terror suspect with
12:41 pm
a string of criminal convictions was reportedly given access to sensitive areas like the runway with no background checks made well with more on this we cannot cross lines to our correspondent in london. and to say can you take us through what happens. well mickey another highly concerning incident circulating in the press here in the u.k. it's been reported that a former terrorist suspect and a criminal with seventeen a we a says was able to get a job at heathrow airport which is in fact one of the busiest airports in the country without as what's being described as proper security and background checks and being able to allegedly get as close to things like luggage area as well as airplanes it's being reported that this thirty one year old man had a criminal record lasting over a decade including for things like threats to kill robbery money laundering and assault now he has been reported to have spent five years behind bars previously
12:42 pm
and it's said that he was interviewed by anti-terrorist fishel as much as five times in the last two years now those charges against him were dropped however he must have been on some kind of watch list following all of those developments however this is exactly what is raising questions as to how this story was even able to unravel now curiously this man worked as a kitchen porter in the business and first class lounges at heathrow airport and he himself has said that the fact that he was able to do so is a disgrace and he was trying to show a loophole in the security system the security procedures are a disgrace and need to be exposed and that's an extremist a terrorist i love and want to protect i can believe how close they can get to the planes and luggage i can delete stuff you through don't get checked it's crazy.
12:43 pm
well it seems that heathrow airport officials seem to believe that there's not very much to worry about in relation to those developments. the conditions of this temporary pass require the individual to be constantly scolded by a permanent member of staff who was also subject to robust and through airport security search each time he gained access to certain areas. well we've contacted the metropolitan police who have told us that they would not discuss such matters now it has to be said that this man's temporary pass was active for just several days it's been since been revoked and he no longer has this job but however the fact that this even came out of course raises lots of questions about the state of security especially this not being the first time that something like this unravels and i stay check in our reporting from london thank you for those details. well bitcoin is rarely out of the news these days given the roller coaster ride is

12:48 pm
when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. in america a college degree requires a great deal or. paying a decade's long debts from. studying so hard it requires strong just. going through humiliation to enter an elite society. and parching to death sometimes quite literally. want other true colors of universities in the us. apart from many clubs over the years so i know the game inside guides. football
12:49 pm
isn't only about what happens on the pitch put a final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money just kill you narrowness and spending student twenty million one fly a. book it's an experience like nothing else not to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful guy my great so what more chance for. a nice minute. god. was. i was. was i.
12:50 pm
blowing welcome across like we're all things considered i'm here all about well washington's political elites chatter endlessly about memos the u.s. continues to deepen its role in the syrian proxy war of course there is no public debate about this and are the two koreas giving peace a chance. cross talking some real news i'm joined by my guest mark sloboda he's an international affairs and security analyst we also have a he's a political analyst as well as
12:51 pm
a leading expert at the center for actual politics and of course we have he's a political analyst with sputnik international right gentlemen crossed the girls in effect i mean to can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate it let's first talk about what's going on in syria here. as a avid watcher of cable news in the west and i don't always enjoy it but i feel obligated to watch it. the coverage of syria is it's very interesting there's only one angle primarily and that's how trump. defeated isis that is the when you hear of syria the president of the united states believe it or not. there is almost no mention of the role that russia has played since september two thousand and fifteen that was the tipping point but you know you know i'm quibbling i suppose but you know. i'm one of the programs i'd like to watch as tucker carlson and i think he is a conservative i can identify with him on many issues i think he's right on someone disagrees and he brought on
12:52 pm
a. talk about syria which was i thought it was you know i was very happy to hear maybe you critical view of what's going on. he had a guest and well that gets repeated the usual bluster let's give it a watch go we've got bashar al assad is obviously a dictator but he was against isis too and now we're fighting him it seems demented to me and i bet you if you polled most americans they would agree with me well what i think you know the administration is doing now and what president trump is doing now is shifting from isis to iran and you know and russia is heavily involved in you know there's a lot of people i think rightly asking why not just let the russians take care of it well i'll tell you a couple of reasons one the russians don't care about isis they care about defending assad to they're aligned with iran and iran has made more gains in the last decade under the obama administration and terms of advancing it's had germany which is not in the united states' interest or israel's interest than they've made in the last thousand years and three i'll quote a former nato commander who said the russians have weaponized refugees pile them
12:53 pm
into europe allowed isis to infiltrate and have done more to destabilize our partners in europe and the warsaw pact ever did so i think all of those things that are in it and with respect that's just pure propaganda in my opinion. picture react to that because i mean we could spend the entire program deconstructing only that one small part of that segment complete on their glory because they're essentially michael waltz finds himself in the hearts but why because he has to explain he has to respond to to tucker carlson in a very simple question. assad is fighting isis the united states officially so house that it's fighting isis so why is the united states. forces is there why is this. the simple question no simple lesson well one that we got a non answer we got it we got to do exactly what inflection it was it was
12:54 pm
a deflection because he did not want to say that troops the official american policy is very different from the real policy that washington use and the real policy that washington pursues is aimed at eliminating assad is that he that of syria that's and that's one of the reasons but the way that isis florist is syria without the support that the assad forces initially got from the u.s. from britain some other countries some other allies of the us i says would not have flourished here i mean if there had been the illegal invasion of iraq in two thousand and three of course and here and. show that's what you say as you know iran has been gaining more influence you know spread into july and that is why it's probably because of why because of what will not be able to speak clearly clear to our beauty it's because of what iran is doing or what other actors are doing because well obviously it is other well not been for the u.s. invasion of iraq in one thousand nine hundred one you know if it had not been for
12:55 pm
the u.s. invasion of iraq in two thousand and three in iran would have not been so influential it's a simple so that even the mainstream media. in the constant attempts to combat what they ludicrously call iranian have gemini we just simple the fact that iran has some influence against the overwhelming middle east germany of the united states israel and saudi arabia this this tripod alliance. they refuse to allow any other country particularly a weak country like syria to be allied with iran the us decides who is allowed to be allied with who and who isn't allowed to be allied with you and they never notice that all their attempts to roll black some fictional iranian influence on least in korea really and. gemini i mean just think about out who's really the edge of my heart you not only that but there are continual efforts in syria.
12:56 pm
directed against iran they have pushed russia any ron paul to i'm sure iran and china closer together russia than the russian government years ago wouldn't have wanted to be caught dead in bed with the iran now they find they have so many geopolitical interests in common and they can deal with them so professionally compared to the westerners that you know what we're looking at another de-facto strategic partnership it's interesting that when you have to when you compare maybe the russians relationship with the rand and how it has to negotiate honest baby steps level with turkey for example it's inside of russia that both was iran and was it really could you not do you. of course it's boom or but it's that is growing in the one nine hundred ninety s. when the west and you see olson was the president of russia it wasn't because he also was intimidated and he wasn't it wasn't because his administration was somehow
12:57 pm
against watching it wasn't it was because it was an issue of the lesion ship the united states pushing back when to be the only superpower in the world and not letting anyone else have a voice it was consolidating other powers you know this fight therefore i mean with the us again because with the end of the communist ideology russia. actually began realizing its own real national interest was a blinding blinded by ideological goggles here go ahead i'm returning to this few areas we do i mean when michael waltz says that we've lost call into a rainy and influence who kidnapped the lebanese prime minister and kept him against his will in riyadh for several weeks iran oh no it happened to be saudi arabia but we forgot about that who would just ball the syrian forces scheme involved ok syria so doubts about you know i want to go here on this we can't know . but the dovetailing into mark we have this israeli jet crash we don't know exactly what happened to it but it was really fascinating. predictable
12:58 pm
how the israelis and washington mimicking television talking points where it's all about a rant ok here here is a country that you know the the united states tax pro government forces in syria over one hundred people are killed and then we have this goes down we don't know exactly what the circumstances are but then the talking point is it's a brand's fault to be going after reigning in assets in syria. in ours that it was brought down by syrian air defense it is real present their justification for their most recent attack on syria and let's be clear. when we're talking israel uses the excuse of defense self-defense and everything well they have mattis is saying also that they really interesting over there you know what wow militarily invading and occupying syria israel has attacked syria over
12:59 pm
one hundred times since two thousand and eleven in fact they call it the promise not the idea of the israeli fighters just own syrian air space and let fire on any of the enemies and do whatever they want there to whether this is come to an end as of yesterday. is that victory is this an escalation or is it sending a very strong signal and what is russia's role in this because there is some kind of debate here. and one of them is that damascus has had enough considering what mark just said there that they are going to start reacting here or is it the russians and the iranians whispering in your i tend to think the the the the syrians are saying enough is enough they will strike back when the syrian civil war started two thousand and eleven there. then spread to other regions of syria with the support of the west with the support of the united states is that no and these are the leadership was sure that the opposition would win and that assad would lose
1:00 pm
he would he would go in then pro american he would. come in in the mosque us and some conflict would be just right here and go to iraq and so for years it is an. arrangement islamic for me sions in syria this is not a secret even newspapers like her rats have written about islamic fighters being taken to medical hospitals i sort of oh yes indeed and other groups too and. and now in the last few years after. tearing the tide in syria and it is now obvious to everyone in the field that assad is going to stay he he's not going to go no matter how many pronouncement that they're going to be made up by parents by tourists and or anyone else for that matter isabel is now faced with of.
