measures it seems lessons not being learned they need to have a proper review about you know what exactly are the threats what are they trying to do how can they best protect the people if they country to protect against these threats and that doesn't seem to be done it's not like these federal law enforcement agencies are lazy just recently we heard from the f.b.i. that chinese foreign exchange students are a threat to national security we also had federal agencies urging us not to buy chinese brand cellphones and more recently congress renewed the power of the n.s.a. to wiretap and spy on american citizens some might come to the conclusion that it's not incompetence or a lack of effort the issue is rather the type of threat these agencies are choosing to focus on. r.t. new york. a palestinian schoolteacher has been left scarred after being mauled by an israeli army dog a word of warning now you may find some of the following scenes upsetting. was assaulted in the west bank curing road conducted by the israeli defense forces they
were searching for another man the alleged killer of an israeli man who bears the same surname as general here we can start to show you the extent of the injuries sustained during the morning school teachers expected to require further treatment including a skin graft to one of his arms he's also been left with a leg injury. so cut that. i woke up when i heard explosions i looked at my house door and it had been destroyed by an i.d.f. bomb and after that there were several other explosions that destroyed the windows and damaged the house i went immediately to my children's room and we gathered after that there was another explosion that destroyed the bedroom door i saw a dog it started to attack me and bite my shoulder and then it started to bite my leg and i was screaming. the palestinian schoolteacher was allegedly attacked in front of his children and his wife and us. this incident has had
a psychological effect on my husband my children and myself i am staring and was hospitalized and i see waking up at night shaking and trembling the eldest son wakes up screaming that he's that and the little one is waiting it was a terrifying experience the dog attacked my husband for over seven minutes and i tried to help defend my husband by grabbing the dog had what i could and. we all see idea for a comment on the case they responded by saying john had previously threatened civilians in jewish majority areas of the west bank they also told us the raid was conducted in accordance with standard procedures and that job was immediately given medical treatment however he disputes that saying he had to wait to get treatment. afterward i was bleeding for more than two and a half hours and they took me to the hospital note that i only got treatment at the
hospital itself not from the i.d.f. author and journalist my experiment also as the use of dogs is i.d.f. policy. this you know is being cast by the israeli military and government as kind of an isolated incident but as any of us who follow the situation in the west bank know this is far from isolated it's part of a clear policy of using dogs as kind of an advance team during home raids of palestinians there is also a high profile case in twenty fifteen of a sixteen year old from the southern town of beit omar also a town that's under pressure from from jewish settlers where he his home was raided by an israeli dog unit this is a sixteen year old named him he was badly mauled by a dog you know these dogs apply two thousand pounds of pressure per square inch and israeli soldiers were taunting him on video there's actually video of this incident
and now he. and the palestinian human rights group al hock are suing not israel but actually the dutch company for winds canine which supplied those dogs and has supplied what it calls biting dogs to the israeli military for violating u.n. conventions on companies operating in conflict zones so this is a very significant lawsuit and it speaks to a wider policy of what the israeli dissident journalist gideon levy calls lynching by dog. and eight hundred percent increase the u.s. credit he plans to radically boost its stockpile of all to the we shall slots after this short break. so i have all this he is on his own and he practices they don't pressure oppressive measures being deployed against the palestinian people everywhere he said letter colonialism the theft of all of. the many many. you know gives us
stating things that become his undoing of course the gun calls. and uprising. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and. somehow want to be rich. that you'd like to be prosperous what before freedom or can people get. interested always in the water out. there should. be.
welcome back to the program according to a recent u.n. report it will take decades to clear the iraqi city of mosul of unexploded bombs terrence works of being complicated by the fact that many of the bombs a buried under an estimated eleven million tons of rubble we spoke to the u.n. mine action service a senior program manager he compares the situation in the city to that off to world war two. becomes too explosive a house thirds it is very and it is of unseen previously on the sea and proportions in terms of the contamination that we experience it is a mixture of coalition ammunition that has been fired and that has failed to function we are still made at least ten percent of that emanation. that has five been fired has failed to function we also find that ice is an issue that has been fired has failed to function but with higher failure rates in addition to that we
also find improvised explosive devices different types of explosive improvised explosive devices with different fusing systems all in common a combination with rubble high degree of rubble we estimate eleven million ton of rubble in western model at least and in general a very difficult conditions to work under. it is a situation very similar to after the second world war of course what we are doing right now is that we are clearing we serving and we are clearing critical infrastructure but still after ten maybe twenty years maybe even longer there will still be explosive contamination. it is almost impossible to say we haven't got the school of contamination in mosul yet we haven't been to all
locations but it is a question of years and i'm to leverage thing has been cleared it is probably more than ten years. mosul struggles to get back on its feet the iraqi government estimates that eighty eight billion dollars are required to rebuild the whole country as a global aid pledging conference in coate just over thirty percent of that figure was raised the u.s. led coalition started its anti eisel campaign in twenty eight sixteen but it's been embedded in the country since two thousand and three however washington's pledge just three billion of the eighty eight billion dollars in reconstruction aid needed and this was not direct financial help rather the money was placed in loans and financing to help american firms invest in the country. much work to rebuild iraq. and iraq. also. memorable. but only.
the announcement by the us government representative in the kuwait conference was clear they will not provide anything except perhaps some investment in iraq we believe that the iraqi government with all these political factions should have joined forces and demanded to pay the money and it was just. activists demanding justice for those killed in the massive fire in london last year and an unusual way to stage a protest they borrowed from an oscar nominated film you put up a billboard my daughter angela was murdered seven months ago. like in the award winning three billboard outside adding to this i had three billboards to send a clear message trucks carrying the words seventy one day and still no arrests how come paraded across london critics say questions of the safety of cheap pricing have yet to be answered in the wake of jane's prime time disaster.
activists warn many housing projects across the country suffer from the same construction problems as the tile and say authorities of failing to take action and this is a a joke and i spoke to one activist behind the billboard campaign it's been eight months since the ground fell tower tragedy shook the u.k. a twenty four story building was engulfed in flames the lives of seventy one people were lost with dozens more injured numerous campaigns protest demonstrations have taken place since calling for answers justice and accountability. we're now joined by one of the co-founders of justice for grunfeld which is a grassroots community group obviously calling for justice and answers about thank you so much for joining us today two hundred ninety seven buildings that people are
still living in today up and down the country that have the same kinds in the government's responses to that they should pay for it themselves to take it down. you know lots of the survivors are still in temporary or emergency accommodation for those really don't i think you know the survivors and the community i think prosecution of those responsible needs to take place we need to see people in the dark. and they need to suffer the same penalties that any other citizen would do rather than just kind of give him elected officials favorable treatment or how likely do you think that might happen given it's been eight months already and we haven't seen one name or person be held accountable do you think that is actually going to happen i think we're going to have to mikey how planned we will continue to come time to make sure that happens how real is the fear that something like this could happen again while this investigation even is still continuing if i was within one of those buildings i don't think i'd be sleeping at night right now you
know you cannot put people in unsafe built ins and why the government isn't reacting to this quickly and rub people the way your home should your home is your highway fan you have a right to live is a human right to have a safe shall tongue we will continue to campaign you know look out for other things that we're going to and more keep those questions out in the public domain and we're expect the government to respond to what's in the public to mind about with thank you very much for joining us here well the officials are continuing to conduct investigations into what exactly happened at ground fault tower that killed all of those people and it's clear that the local community is going to continue fighting for those answers until we get them and start r.t. monday. an eight hundred percent increase the u.s. military plans to radically boost its stockpile of ultimately shells by almost one hundred fifty thousand units.
the order includes one hundred fifty five millimeter artillery shells a standard nato caliber says specially widespread among naval forces and g.p.s. guided excalibur rounds are also on the list they're designed for danger close situations we all security on this charles shoot bridge what might be behind the surge in orders. almost certainly one can say that these are used these are heavy weaponry they are used mainly in conventional conflicts what we're seeing here is a very large increase that i think can't be completely explained by replenishing used resources the what's being attempted i think it's a gesture it's a symbol that is saying we are massively increasing our defense expenditure in the
areas that are likely to be used in a possible combat scenario with states rather non-state actors and invariably of course they're talking here about russia possibly china iran and others and that would be consistent with the new stated u.s. security policy of confronting those states by any standard this isn't a very great increase in the number of shells being ordered a power for stockpiling which again means that the obvious affects for preparing for war. traversing a fresno of a siberian lake in a pair of skates made over seventy years ago might not be everybody's idea of a daily commute but it is for one russian grandma.
when lawmakers manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the financial merry go round me the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. of the real news is. stein is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos i'm in bill fit to commission to do it living for you like it is this isn't my cup of tea is going out local study hall meeting there. the old john without a telescope with a ship the only palestinians is who gets the most help from its jerusalem counterparts i don't think there's some of those who in the world under the oak

global war hawks selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peanuts to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they don't want. to do socks by to tell you that every gossip the public by file supporters. off the back doesn't tell me you are not cool enough and that's by product. of the hawks that we along with all the walking. in early february twenty fourth as the made crisis was getting more violent there was a phone call that was intercepted it was
a call between the secretary of state for european affairs victoria nuland and the u.s. ambassador to ukraine geoffrey pyatt questions of credibility. private chats between top u.s. diplomats was leaked online i think. you know what he. i just think. working for you. you want to. probably. so you had this remarkable phone call. of the u.s. government apparently talking about a coup or how they were playing to restructure the government of ukraine. exactly i'm not saying the whole u.s.
government feels that way the there is there is division on this but the neo conservative element wants very much to change the strategic dynamic in eastern europe. very smart people and they've been at this for a long time they came in around the issue of propaganda they studied how to create hot buttons for the american people they had this experience when they were getting the american people to get excited about central america back in the one nine hundred eighty s. . and they've been applying those same strategies ever since they remain very dedicated to achieving their goals they still want to get rid of certain governments they want a regime change in syria for instance regime change in iran. very skilled at this and they have a lot of allies now inside the news media inside the government means the. they can do a lot to control the narrative of any story so i think in america these days we have somehow told ourselves that there are
a lot of ways of dealing with these problems other than hard power lattimer putin cares about hard power the neoconservatives can now demonize a leader of a country that sells with the american people so you don't just sort of argue a policy you attack the leader so the neoconservatives became very skilled at picking out leaders finding their ugly traits and then highlighting them yet a cold bitch you might say was a rather clunky political leader but you make him into a devil he's he's totally corrupt and he's evil and he wants to kill people in the made in these wonderful white headed demonstrators so you get a black cat versus white hat and then you keep repeating that basic scenario and it works with the american people and got to realize what vladimir putin is he's an old k.g.b. colonel it wants to restore the russian empire you make them into demons and the american people find that the way they can understand the world once that happens
it's very difficult for a journalist or anyone else to say you know hold it that guy he's got more of a great happen a white hat or a black cat and if you say that you suddenly are you're unico which apologist or you're put an apologist and and then the attacks come on to the person saying it the journalist the academic or whoever. any good director will tell you that tempo and rhythm are the most essential components to hold an audience's attention . some are. pretty mean you know with my them. when you know you must you suck it out of the news of. the chest. it can also be called a method of betrayal when the allies and followers are relentlessly thrown into the revolutionary flame. the idea is simple when the preparation. work is done the trigger just needs to be full the second machine into full motion. the murder
of politician ruffy courier e led to the cedar revolution. looking back at the mysterious poisoning of viktor yuschenko right before the orange revolution of two thousand and four we see now that he became a sacred victim himself. most political analysts believe the compassion of the ukrainian people at that moment tilted the scales giving him the presidency. the number of victims among the protesters during your own my done totaled over one hundred they are called to the heavenly hundred all the sacred victims were immediately mythologized. the beating of students on november thirtieth two thousand and thirteen was the obvious trigger of your own my done those who sent trained provocateurs to the square who very well realised that peaceful protesters were the ones who would get hurt the most. it's hard to keep
protests going for months on end tension subside and people inevitably get tired. holidays are also a big danger for revolutionary masterminds people want to be home with their families and friends and one needs to get inventive to keep people in a cold tent city. on christmas day of two thousand and thirteen tabloid journalist and political want to be taught the on a chart of all was chosen to become the tool to whip the protests on my down back up a civic activist in journalist known for investigating corruption among senior officials was beaten outside. crane's helpful on christmas. her heroic deeds as a reporter looked more like petty crimes trespassing on the presidential residence
of victory on a covert each leading the rioting crowd to seize the key of city administration building breaking into a car of the security service of ukraine it looked like tatyana was more interested in making news than reporting it and gaining name recognition that could be turned into votes for her struggling political career in the opposition party fatherland she gave the world media a christmas present in two thousand and thirteen when she was cruelly beaten by unknown assailants on the road despite the fact that in just three days all the suspects were arrested and confessed to beating tatyana during a road rage incident world media kept insisting upon the political background of the crime instantaneously tatyana became a heroic martyr uniting people around her image the beating coming and the political turmoil in ukraine this is draw if protests your own my done was once again center stage and tatyana in less than two months after the assault she was
already healthy enough to attack the office of party of regions the party a victory on a covert each letter to the zealots much in the given one that a look at this in a disability latino if you know they got it because it was like this group as if one of the staff members sixty five year old i.t. specialist in flat emirs a heart of was killed during the attack. so where is tatyana now well she finally got her position of power in the new government. one month later the time for another act in the play came armenian ukrainian protester sir gagne go on was one of the first to arrive at my don he wasn't radical or violent but instead naive and full of hope. watching surrogate read a patriotic poem is like watching a casting tape. for the role of a sacred victim lead to simple money the most common solicitousness.
for this is. unfortunately sergey got the part betrayed by his brothers in arms this video would eventually go viral after sergei was killed early in the morning of january twenty second two thousand and fourteen the circumstances of his death remain unknown to this day even though the whole area of protests was heavily filmed at that time there were no records or witnesses to help the investigation and his body was moved immediately from the scene of the crime. sergei became the first killed martyr of your own my don and in a heartbeat the police officers were appointed as his killers almost two years later the official investigation would still deliver no results now it is widely believed that nico yawns murder was staged by provoke a tourist to escalate the conflict.
god speaks to people with the language of signs on january twenty sixth two thousand and fourteen hope francis prayed for ukraine addressing thousands of people at st peter's square in vatican city they. made speeches. after the prayer to white doves were released from the papal window and were immediately attacked by a crow and siegel those who understand the language could easily read the meaning of this ailment soon great forces the siegel and the crow would be tearing apart two slavic nations the white doves this omen gave hope to the ukrainian people saying that by god's will the doves would be saved but it also predicted severe hardship and many victims. the events which could enter into the history of the color revolutions as the most massive human sacrifice yet arrived right on schedule one month later.
