6:30 am
by telling us what the person was wearing were by describing a ring or watch where a tattoo why didn't define a lot of bodies through the hair because it doesn't disintegrate and mass graves of raka highlight not only i solved monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's denial in its responsibility for the city's tragedy the correlation has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty thousand rounds and several thousand strikes it launched into rock a city the blustery denials a contradicted by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures it's hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these were taking only a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s.
6:31 am
led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble that was there definitely in washington when we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew that but i knew that if the aircraft bomb using force for us it targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is bombed randomly if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down on you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more. musgrave's are still
6:32 am
to be found thousands of people were killed during the battle to retake the city. many were buried has to leave but also many remain in the rubble zero or at least nine mass graves each one has to militarize dozens to hundreds of bodies and it was really hard to make such as to beaches but that's what we know who authorities are struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because there are many stuff that catered to conduct exit missions because they are led to mines around there it is clear from what we have seen on the ground that the teams that are working to exhibit bodies need far more creating a technical assistance but until someone answers the pleas of ruckus citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh. radio liberty and media outlets funded by the us government has placed an adverse on facebook promoting nato it was quickly noted that the outlet is prohibited from
6:33 am
placing ads that target a u.s. audience can have open explains. now it turns out that one news outlet has been forced to remove its political ads from facebook it turns out it was the u.s. government's own radio free europe aka radio liberty here's an extract from their mission statement which of course you can find on their web site which ends in dot gov. a mission is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where free press is banned by the government not fully established journalists provide what many people cannot get locally on since that news response will discussion an open debate perhaps they consider the united states to be one of those countries that doesn't have a free press after all the ads were specifically targeted at americans now facebook says the ads were not political which is rather interesting as they were
6:34 am
specifically related to recent controversies regarding trump and to nato. sixty one percent of the surveyed population in twelve countries view nato to favorably it's actually illegal for federally funded news outlets under the umbrella of the broadcast board of governors to direct their content at an american audience the only exception is by special request and there was none in the case of radio liberty after new york times journalists raised a red flag the board of governors deleted the yes none of the b.b.c. now where should be distributing or promoting our content massacree in order to develop or grow domestic audiences but why would facebook allow ads about nato to begin with this is just after facebook has imposed strict rules regarding commercials with political content in the united states r.t. materials frequently banned and that's even when it's not directed at an american audience. and issue ads on facebook and instagram in the u.s.
6:35 am
must be clearly labeled including a paid for by disclosure from the advertiser at the top of the ad it turns out that the rules about what constitutes a political ad are pretty big as far as facebook is concerned any r.t. news related to the usa is a political advert meanwhile a commercial specifically talking about how everyone loves nato is not now russian scholar shonda laurie recently tried to promote in an interview about his recently published compendium of coverage of donald trump from russian magazines and newspapers face book shut him down for his book want to prove my it for the sport cost apparently what the russian press thinks of trump is dangerous information there's a double standard if you want to break the rules to help defend freedom ok which is which is really not possible it's illogical they've constantly lived in
6:36 am
this state of a false reality where. it's ok to propagandize and to blanket the rest of the world with a cia funded message but it's not ok for russia to finance or to partially even finance a great television network that's competitive with the b.b.c. for news no permission why is that not ok all this talk about fake news and propaganda has put the us political establishment and tech giants like facebook in a pretty difficult spot basically they've been reduced to saying we can't promote it if we don't agree with it he looked up and r.t. new york. with facebook and the board costing board of governors on yet to comment on the situation we will update you on their response as soon as we get it. students at a university in england remove a poem from a campus building describing the whole thing as
6:37 am
a racist good details for you off this very quick break. just like a comparison to the u.k. embrace of versus the u.s. policies are still global trade so dollar trump goes to the global trading environment and with the ability to leverage america's got a leverage in that economy and it can reshape the global economy the eve k. went against the e.u. with no leverage they have a zero leverage against the e.u. therefore they've lost tragically against you and their colors being marginalized and isolated as a result of it they completely misstated our misunderstood there at the equation between the u.k. and the e.u. when it comes to business and trade. what hope to change to. put themselves on the line and begin to show the reject.
6:38 am
so when you want to be president and you. want to reach. into going to be pros which is what will before three of them or can't be good. i'm interested in the waters in the. west. welcome back now after the white house announced is inviting russian president vladimir putin to washington the media is still trying to come to terms with trump style of diplomacy boyko breaks down what's been dubbed the worst week for trump sporran policy the u.s. president has upset everyone because she says risked it doesn't do glamorous the life of this little. trumpery north one of the rules of diplomacy on his whistle stop tour of europe went off piste and told the truth don't worry you threw in
6:39 am
a you tube it was an astonishing performance he managed to piss european allies and then in the interests of equality he does own citizens to diplomacy is the art of luring in someone's face but nicely years is a method not found in any text reg he sobered up opponents and allies with a stream of clearly obvious as well finishing the most with a laser guided through one of the most name terrorism for us to take a truth from here's the e.u. of sticking washington with the bill of defending europe well nato members don't like hearing that said out loud you see they prefer diplomatically considered criticism which they can diplomatically ignore next the diplomatic headed to britain where trumpeted already in the nation in advance by suggesting that the u.k. was in a spot of bragg's it in joost political turmoil how dare he politicians cry well
6:40 am
the ones on dealing with all the turmoil that is then trump it in face to face in helsinki and mainstream america exploded let me see those guys come on it's not the cold war anymore but one was called a traitor and. these are a disgrace for apparently casting doubt on the conclusion by the american intelligence services that russia meddled in the us elections are a traitor and peas are a disgrace. he said the air was wrong. the day aloft or though he said he actually meant to say the exact opposite donald's desperate backtracking was the first sign of genuine diplomacy he'd shown so much truth bomb did trumpet drop in the presence of the suggested the world's two largest nuclear powers should try to get along dear god mr president do you
6:41 am
know nothing. a poem by nine hundred thirty three british trying to rejoin kipling has been removed by students at manchester university in the north west of england they claim the author who is best known for writing the jungle book was racist the poem if it was painted in a newly renovated building but was quickly criticized by students who said they should have been consulted before hand and they said kipling sought to legitimize the the british empire presence in india and dehumanize people of color the student union apologize for the apparent oversight of verse from civil rights activist my angelo's still i rise was now because now replaced the poem we spoke to people in london and asked them about the students' initiative. some students in manchester have defaced a mural of a raja kipling poem because he was a racist and a colonialist according to them do you think that's right but having knowledge of
6:42 am
what they did or what i believe but i don't think that we should disregard them as people or that was just because of an opinion they had the actually i think there been many great artists also in this museum been fired missile genius take and fly problematic people in their private clothes but that doesn't necessarily mean that there are going to be that values but it also can mean that so it should be acknowledged and it should be they're open for discussion but the thought of that shouldn't be censored everything in its current period is significant and as i write. buteux we can look at those in different views and attitudes now this is it is a man of his time. and you've got to accept that that was his time today maybe not where you go to face so you just revealed really that much free speech is out the window if you do that's there's a really tricky when you have so far you go you have before you get out but we didn't value them as a person i would say i think we can learn a little bit from that you know that it was a bad thing to do you know it's not right now but still you know it's people doing
6:43 am
the past it does get very difficult to draw a line then chew and then you've got the women who wrote under men's names because they were not allowed to. you know in that kind of sense you do we then republished their works under their original names kipling is not the only author whose work has been criticised recently where of our fear of the. future of the western material achievement and progress made no dand on the rounded sleeve of china. wants she forgive me for all of my friends without his ever saying anything they were simply a little something shameful between us like this billion. open up the horse a symbol fight.
6:44 am
there is a trait in the jewish character that does provoke animosity maybe it's a kind of lack of generosity towards non jews hitler didn't just pick on them for no reason. listen the jew and the jews your empire and you yourselves out jude the jew and the big jew has received every nation his word and didn't. thank you for joining us this hour we'll be back with the latest in just under thirty minutes. when lawmakers manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. in the final
6:45 am
merry go round live certainly the one percent. that's not going to nor middle of the room six. million. right we're all set to start in five guys this year has a signal. it's not going to talk about. just living right after the arse explores what you would have there. for a rock. seriously let's see.
6:46 am
ok let's roll well welcome to sophie and co i'm so see cher are not said today woke up lots to talk about in our program and our guest is. good luck little. food. lose. lose.
6:47 am
lose. move. they gave us national camera. roughly once the showed so must leave for them. to joan cool videos and sell them with the broccoli string at that. point down more
6:48 am
on string i don't rightly dot t.v. . i. am in the middle of the sixties there were thirty million students enrolled in higher education in two thousand and fifteen there were two hundred million in less than fifteen years there are expected to be four hundred million. jewish heard you hold live between. leveraging the border and. while the demand keeps growing university tuition fees skyrocket the world over the cost of education is high increasingly terrible for countdowns more. extreme i don't understand how can a school be a scam. in the name of so-called economic pragmatism and as
6:49 am
a result of international competition universities are turning into huge money making machine it's. none of my family members went universe i think i wanted to be i wanted to be got one. from shanghai to new york paris to billion countries around the world reflect trying different moves each remodelling its system in its own way but at what price and who profits from it. was. she. at the starting point of us story which begins at the end of the ninety's. at that time europe is the financial izing itself all the while expanding many intellectuals european university presidents and expert groups engage in a vast reflection on how to build
6:50 am
a more complete more ambitious europe. how to strengthen its intellectual scientific and technological influence. what is the secret of the united states and its economic power. the answer lies in higher education and research. around that has become undeniably strategic. guess. at the end of the twentieth century and their universities prevail and who europe is afraid afraid of finding itself on the sidelines it needs a strategy and so european gauges in a series of reforms to make its higher education more competitive so it can serve
6:51 am
europe's economy its productivity its job market and its liberal project england will quickly set the tone before anyone else and to get straight to the point. after the second world war we had a system where local education authorities around the country were responsible for providing a grant to students and giving of covering tuitions fees. and that was at a time when roughly three percent of eighteen year olds went to university around twenty thousand a year. all science students will for their first two terms be required to attend lectures on physics chemistry mathematics and biology it will also be possible for science students to major in philosophy knowledge is not bullshit look at what a huge mit world one in one and covering all sides of all all places. in the one nine hundred eighty s. and one nine hundred ninety s.
6:52 am
there was a funding crisis amongst universities lots of vice chancellors complaining that they didn't have enough money to cover the amount of students so now coming through the system so the government commissioned a report and this was called the deering report and that came up with a number of recommendations almost one hundred recommendations roughly half for the government about how it could. maintain sustain and improve higher education in the u.k. and one of the most controversial parts of that report was the introduction of was i in one thousand nine hundred seven the british left led by its young charismatic candidate tony blair wins the elections after eighteen long years of conservative rule. at the age of forty three the head of the labor party takes charge of the country with a program whose foundation is to apply private sector management models to public
6:53 am
services so as to make them more efficient more productive route higher education will be no exception. right. we need to widen access to universities get more money into universities and the best and fairest way to do it is a balance between the state and the graduate. face became reality and nine hundred ninety eight and it was a key landmark in the history of higher education in the u.k. because at that moment the principle of free education free higher education in the u.k. finished. for this historic reform tony blair introduces the yearly one thousand pound tuition fee a smooth way to start five years later prompted by his second term election tony blair authorizes universities to charge tuition fees up to three thousand three hundred pounds yearly and tony blair. head of britain's labor party successfully passed a reform that the conservatives would never have dared bring forward. in two thousand
6:54 am
and ten the labor party rallies the opposition the coalition made of liberal democrats and conservatives led by david cameron take charge of the country very rapidly the debate of a jewish and fees arises on the political scene again this time the government intends to alter ised to ration fees up to nine thousand pounds yearly all the while reducing the portion of public funding and it catered to universities this new reform violently divides both members of parliament and public opinion that have been very difficult choices to make we have opted for a such a policy is that provides a strong base for university funding which makes a major contribution to reducing the deficit and introducing a significantly more progressive system of graduate paper and stuff we inherited and i'm proud to put forward that magic so this.
6:55 am
order. there is nothing a bank that tiny benefit to the lowest income graduates that justifies doubling or tripling the debt of the vast majority of brides isn't it credible for the past that you actually introduce the principle of graduates paying and thank you for two jewish and fee increases is able to drum up quite so much fake anger on the issue to stop. any young person ask any young person in any poor communities in our country what is your prospect what is your what do you want to do many would say i want to study i want to qualify i want to go to university i want to achieve something in life. help them. unless they are very poor or they're going to borrow money to survive to get through university
6:56 am
they simply will not do it this decision matters so much to so many people. i'd say to the house if you don't believe in it vote against. it for the right three hundred twenty three you know most of the last three hundred true god. was. i was when it was really from three thousand that it became one thousand pounds i was up to university if they wanted to introduce nine thousand pounds. face or anything between six thousand and nine thousand and unsurprisingly most university decided to set nine thousand pounds most students have now half
6:57 am
a million students going through every year most of those will be paying a minimum nine thousand pounds a year and that's stuns. over the course of fifteen years british politicians are ruling class that enjoyed free access to education inflicted a paying system on the new generation. british students along with a european fellows now have to deal with these new rulings that's the way it is. they're young they long for a solid future that dusty for knowledge and dream of climbing the social ladder all that has a price tag and they'd better get used to it. and to grow up in a working class family in the south of poland the young woman could have enrolled in a university in cracow in copenhagen or even amsterdam. it would have been free in
6:58 am
england and it was granted a student loan to pay for her nine thousand pounds tuition fee. i knew i was going to go abroad to study and i think well for a little while i thought it was going to be scotland but then. i think i decided it was england you know like way back and it just stuck with me and i and i came here and it was it was scary it was so scary because i was away from home i was here alone i didn't have anywhere to turn to and look at me now i study chinese of all the crises that i could have chosen i can't wait for you know what the future holds and what i'm going to do i have so many ideas but we'll see. i talked to my grandfather once and we're talking about everything else and then kind of started talking about university and how much money that costs and
6:59 am
everything and i had many thoughts about ok maybe maybe i'll quit maybe i'll you know it's too much maybe it's not worth it and then i realized well how my going to pay it back but that's one of the reasons why i stayed and other reason bigger even is that i like what i do i think i'm not quite sure where that came from my need to go to university i think is because. none none of my family members went to university i think i wanted to be i wanted to be that one first person who did that and my mom my mom really wanted me to do that as well she did encourage me strongly i don't know what i would do with her if i fail i would i would feel like i failed her and i never want to do that ever. because being here and doing what i do and being university is my way of paying her back problem that
7:00 am
she's to me i think. oh yeah i'm good it's my way of paying back for everything. and. ah. european students would be forced one day to get into debt. should education become a sellable good. must judas become self-made finance he has to earn an education. northern european countries see things a bit differently. in the fullest means that you are not going to take instruction from any of the fighting and we know that in this situation of syria the state of agenda the
7:01 am
mandate that was given to us is bull it's not targeting one particular side to this conflict it is broad it is focusing on identifying investigating person and building five on sunday the more terrorists. seventy four design submissions say. seven cells pilings. to join judges. that eight hundred sixty nonstop days of. the russian w.b. a champion of the. underbrush. show you how. the crimea bridge was built. what was the construction
7:02 am
living you need to transport doughtery that will help the cause of crimea. most of those you know while google for more familiar bit of the bridge club. so there's ample of it i'm valid store acting or just a down payment on a handgun and most of it all i need to sample and fired last on a building. don't think a lot is that. if i didn't ask mr don't support all adult institute of used to be that sounds like i was at the vastness out to down to spit. or leak it on to for new found skill angles can appeal to gays is going to get it is my boy so but all of the hell are in our studio. so the majority belive hmong are suited up able to
7:03 am
scalp men for okaying is miles from. last on hamlet building but when it's got. going to from a it appears not and so most of the put on a studio in. sweden just like denmark and finland not only offers free education to european students but also allocates a universal ground to each three to student three hundred euros a month for six years. this way the student sees his or her time at university as an experience of freedom and learning a way to shape a critical mind and apprehend the world here it's important it's called the student experience. they are in love with the us the for us to them no matter internet from . their. mix on manic or. share not the whole of their friends photo and number have
7:04 am
a third at twelve can ask op us in from paid. tank a feat oak tank. made and yet i'm a forty four and i said here that in fronted oak that my docs are stuff. that. have. done that made me have a heart that i believe that we've got to drum up at the moment when i have to do these you have to start us off good laughs at the end of this because you know you might just be coming down and obviously have a. look at child if you. but there's something to the whole goal of your earliest thing. alone to those trying to solve all stem cells not just. or soon almost all sales will come to market so now all this a member. of society have to do clubs you know find here no p.o.v.
7:05 am
so. the moment you know you know fussing with a good thing during a time and then back down montreal nothing's on me and me and decide this is the good news what's the coincidence fantasy of a man the judge and the most i could give me a peninsula has got the senate all the spine you say on the surface the. don't get some f. don't talk about stuff different about stuff how the bomb still loom the horror of a result of well how do you hold about. it in the midst of intimacy so it's where the moments come from doing the show not the. investigation from we call the toss a. special stimulus i just read this book if i must tell you the most about. your picture of your teacher about. even the mystical certain kind of helping them they come to. the side. former state before they come and live and
7:06 am
let us not the next minute i think of the oaks of this lot harder also think i'll see over there to know how to spin it all not just when i was trying to see if i'm the youngest must go for the sake of that some famous coke i'm still finding out things as they go out there but see it at the end of this week some of my holiday i'll do anything new on sunday some of the most complete getting numb pics on the feeds if there's any kind to your point that three hundred to some your thank you for having me and i've already got you in the middle of the on the stand thing. despite. what happens elsewhere the jewish unfeeling crease hasn't deterred young english students from enrolling. in one thousand nine hundred eight just before the introduction of tuition fees there were eight hundred thousand students in english universities. there are now two point three million the cost to access knowledge
7:07 am
hasn't deterred them so why stop there. dave vice chancellor is already making noises about the cap but he still to live life thousand pounds a year. many are saying that we need to move to an american style system where it's much much more expensive it's not a nine thousand pounds capital b. much much more but i think what we're witnessing i'm in a cross the public sector an equation on public sector within the united kingdom within the u.k. it's probably the third phase of competition and privatized marketisation since since the second world war and that's what we've seen in terms of higher education it's a slow creep and when you start to introduce that you get the leadership of universities stop thinking necessarily about the education that they are providing or about the public good start importing the behaviors of what they see as
7:08 am
a competitive environment elsewhere within the private sector. manchester so students we've got many different universities here venture so much robotron university university or so forth northwestern college of music manchester articulate a million songs we're told in student population is about one hundred thirty thousand students which is pretty much one third of the city our campus year it is almost as big as mentions for city center. the division of communications and marketing communicates everything that's good about the university both internally and text and it's developing and it's also professionalizing the higher education sector is probably like behind the commercial sector for some time but it's catching up very fast our university has its very own starbucks if you're into
7:09 am
starbucks if you're into like taking selfies with your starbucks cup and everything this is pretty much the clothes to go if you go to subway you're going to get a free cookies if you go to mcdonald's you're going to get a free milk for ian so. saw the series pretty much made for students so make great use of it student fees have increased from three thousand pounds to nine thousand pounds that does mean that students want better value for money they want more and marketing can help and communicate what what the benefits of an organization are so we always have many many different people coming over we had some professors from many different countries we have also movie directors and everything if you want to make a good impression stuff you can get a job offers in higher education in the u.k. traditionally like historically communications and marketing have been very much a support function what we're seeing now is
7:10 am
a transformation where we're moving from a supporting role to a leadership role. and that's the feeling that as has come very very quickly over the last few years that it's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business many universities are now businesses and the vice chancellors are also chief executives and they make no they're not shy in saying this they have to make money they have to make a profit and startlingly what we found is that over a period of five years vice chancellors salaries had increased by on average somewhere in the region of twenty six percent whereas in the same period for your main gate lecturers those people are actually providing the service to the students that saw their pay drop in real terms by twelve percent well this is a clear normally and you have to ask yourself the questions of why is this
7:11 am
happening. reform is of the english system similar to all those worldwide could support paying education rely on an essential concept an economic theory born in the sixty's. and it rose to. pain at the end of the ninety's. the human capital. the capital you must acquire say the third course a day or. other david you just caused us stuck the complete dose of the good is also a very noisy ugly short of it don't. you know that bt. loss over the the pharmacy all of us real a pharmacy or any of us still of course you state. this week at the dollar bill so there it was you pause. the songs. you give that is that the name there was new and so it all clichy cimon do them on
7:12 am
the island remember the feel say the pharmacy also give either a pause a larger society yet or cover bought or to come does it true that it is if you force yourself up off the it what you fear most at rouge like an exhaust that blue green valley or they could mimic is are they going to meet at a saucy d.c. printed if you jump so that your course you pause desire may let you just revive our good old proceed you know says it you didn't kill other top receiver you got bigger share. in that to lead me to the bush plan to it we all don't have a shot is. influenced by the english tidal wave in two thousand and six germany also raised his tuition fees authorizing universities to charge one thousand euros per year literately
7:13 am

despite a ban on targeting an american audience. a very warm welcome it's nine am here in the russian capital and you're watching r.t. international with me becky aaron. after a recent spike in violence on the gaza border militant group hamas says it's agreed to a cease fire with israel violence escalated after an israeli soldier was killed that prompted a series of airstrikes on sixty hamas positions there have been fears of an all out confrontation as artie's policy or explains. there have been massive airstrikes some of the biggest since the last war back in two thousand and fourteen earlier we did hear from the country's defense minister avigdor lieberman he threatened a large and painful military operation he said that israel would go to if the kind
7:22 am
of beliefs that are constantly flown from gaza into israel and has been for the past few weeks do not cease now the deadline given was friday afternoon and of course that deadline has passed the cards continued and that again will be a contradictory reason as to why are we witnessing this flare up in violence israeli army has a question that it will respond harshly and it continues to blame her musts for the flare up in violence the i.d.f. use today the whole store activity is treated by hamas throughout the last month with great severity hamas chose to escape the security situation and move the consequences for its actions israeli civilians who live along the gaza border have been ordered to remain near bomb shelters at the same time for the last few hours has been evacuating military posts as well as commandos in anticipation that there will be an even stronger response from the israeli side early in the week there was a massive israeli air strike the biggest since the two thousand and fourteen war
7:23 am
and that followed the country's prime minister benjamin netanyahu threatening that he would strike back at home us during the sabbath we hit hard our policy is clear when anyone seeks to harm us we will strike back with great force as i mentioned earlier the last time we saw such a flare up in violence was back in two thousand and fourteen operation protective edge which started roughly round about now and that was a war there witnessed more than two thousand palestinians killed and saw some seventy three israeli civilians die so of course the situation on the ground is extremely tense there's a lot of concern that we could be witnessing another full frontal confrontation. well friday saw israel's first casualty in the almost four months of protests on the gaza border four palestinians were also killed and more than one hundred twenty injured on the same day the total number of those killed since the start of the great march of return protests is now more than one hundred thirty goals
7:24 am
a based journalist who reports from the border. with. nearly one hundred fifty meters away from carney the fence and as you see the palestinian youths protesters are describing and expressing expressing their rage by climbing this fans. i have to say that this is one of the hardest days we have been covering. the protests on weekly basis for boy than five months we saw explosions on both sides scores were injured it's very dangerous and this was one of the toughest days we have ever witnessed by live ammunition tear gas airstrikes and a lot in a lot of more weapons the israelis have been using against the palestinians
7:25 am
president commentator and they are and on the former director of a palestinian civil rights organization most in ramadan shared their views on the recent conflict. hundreds of palestinians if you accumulate the numbers have either died or been injured at the demonstrations but this is not happened because israel has used force. to the contrary israel only reacted and israel tried to keep the entire border quiet it is not in its interest to try and repel. number of but the scene and war show did differ on that is that you the soldiers without any dangers. from them to theirs or you disorders they are just raising slogans and. voices and asking the international community to what a brush up to israel to end that she'd get to freedom of movement and promote it as
7:26 am
to the for the senior to live as normal people. the human being and live in. and. it's been a year since the iraqi city of mosul was liberated from islamic state the city had been the terror group's defacto capital in the country for nearly three years artie's raptly agency visited the city. i think it will be unfair to say that nothing has changed but what we what we go for is that the change should happen more quickly or we see that's the level of destruction that happened a year ago is still very visible infrastructure hasn't been repaired yet most people haven't been reopened yet there's a lack of water there's a lack of electricity. going back and potentially finding their bodies in your house in your street but in
7:27 am
that sense george appears very devastating because once again you're confronted to it's all the horrible things that happened in mosul you know yes there are two bodies still down there and there are four more bodies in that house behind us there's still inside the stench coming from them is very strong our children are getting sick because of this. there were six of us my daughter was killed we lived in the house after the airstrikes i just couldn't live there anymore. only them. because they said we're not going to treat her our priority is the fight is we can give her an injection so she dies immediately but if her to die at home.
7:28 am
the horror of war can also be seen in the syrian city of raka the bodies of more than one hundred one thousand two hundred civilians the majority of them women and children have been discovered in three mass graves there it's claimed they were killed when the u.s. led coalition bombs the area it was done up as the details. tobar will mark exactly one year since i saw defeat in their caliphate self-proclaimed capital rocker and months after the u.s. coalition's victory restored or freed of torment the syrian city is still not these are the latest pictures from one of three recently discovered massive graves these burial sites contain more than a thousand bodies. and there are three hundred to four hundred bodies in this mass
7:29 am
grave three to four catacombs are completely full of did bodies grief and despair still has the syrian city reeling as relatives time and time again have to identify their loved ones. excluded the body of only one of my sisters the other four remain missing i don't know where they were burned by my uncle now we're looking for the uncle to cope find them but the majority of the bodies are civilians mostly women and children our team works twenty four hours a day whether a civilian or a fighter we give the body a number well this number is over a thousand now and that's just to the three recently discovered mass graves it's a race against time and they're ready to earn their more time passes the harder it is to identify the bodies as they rot in the ground nameless families help us
7:30 am
identify the civilians by telling us what the person was wearing were by describing a ring or watch where it had to be why didn't define a lot of bodies through the hair because it doesn't disintegrate and mass graves of raka highlight not only i solved monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's denial in its responsibility for the city's tragedy the coalition has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty thousand or three rounds and several thousand strikes it. since a rock a city the blustery didn't or as a contradicted by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these were taking only a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s.
7:31 am
led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble there was that an effect in washington that we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew that of that i knew that if the aircraft bomb using force for us it targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brendan lee if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down on you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more musgrave's are still
7:32 am
to be found houses of people who were killed your. city. maybe were buried has to leave but also many remain in the rubble or at least in mass graves each one has to be dozens to hundreds of bodies of ministry hard to make such as to beaches but that's what we know for years are struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because there are many of the gated to conduct examinations because the mines around there it is clear for. on the grounds that they are working to exhibit bodies need far more creating and technical assistance but until someone answers the pleas of ruckus citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh. radio liberty and media outlet funded by the us government has placed an outburst on facebook it was quickly noted
7:33 am
that the outlet is prohibited from placing ads that targeted that target a u.s. audience on the scale of more than explains now it turns out that one news outlet has been forced to remove its political ads from facebook was the u.s. government's own radio free europe aka radio liberty here's an extract from their mission statement which of course you can find on their web site which ends in. a mission is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where free press is banned by the government or not fully established journalists provide what many people cannot get locally and since it's news responsible discussion and open debate perhaps they consider the united states to be one of those countries that doesn't have a free press after all the ads were specifically targeted at americans now facebook says the ads were not political which is rather interesting as they were
7:34 am
specifically related to recent controversies regarding trump and in nato. sixty one percent of the surveyed population in twelve countries view need to favorably it's actually illegal for federally funded news outlets under the umbrella of the broadcast board of governors to direct their content at an american audience the only exception is by special request and there was none in the case of radio liberty after new york times journalists raised a red flag the board of governors deleted the ads none of the b.b. g. now where should be distributing or promoting our content massacree in order to develop or grow domestic audiences but why would facebook allow ads about nato to begin with this is just after facebook has imposed strict rules regarding commercials with political content in the united states r.t. materials frequently banned and that's even when it's not directed at an american audience. and issue ads on facebook and instagram in the u.s.
7:35 am
must be clearly labeled including a paid for by disclosure from the advertiser at the top of the ad it turns out that the rules about what constitutes a political ad are pretty big as far as facebook is concerned any r.t. news related to the usa is a political advert meanwhile a commercial specifically talking about how everyone loves nato is not now russian scholar shonda laurie recently tried to promote an interview about his recently published compendium of coverage of donald trump from russian magazines and newspapers face book shut him down for his book want to prove my it for the sport cost apparently what the russian press thinks of trump is dangerous information there's a double standard if you want to break the rules to help defend freedom ok which is which is really not possible it's illogical they've constantly lived in
7:36 am
this state of the false reality where. it's ok to propagandize and to blanket the rest of the world with a cia funded message but it's not ok for russia to finance or to partially even finance a great television network that's competitive with the b.b.c. for news and information why is that not ok all this talk about fake news and propaganda has put the us political establishment and tech giants like facebook in a pretty difficult spot basically they've been reduced to saying we can't promote it if we don't agree with it caleb oppen r.t. new york both facebook and the book costing board of governors are yet to comment on the situation we will update you on their response as soon as we get it so students at a university in england have removed a poem from a campus building describing the oath as
7:37 am
a racist and got the details for you off this quick break. but politicians to do so. put themselves on the line. they get accepted or rejected . so when you want to present. something i want to. let you go right to the press this is what. you see that. i'm interested in the why is it that. there should be more. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race move this on off and spearing dramatic developments only loosely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
7:38 am
to. welcome back after the white house announced as inviting russian president putin to washington the media is still trying to come to terms with trump style of diplomacy probably boyko breaks down what's been dubbed the was too weak for trump's foreign policy. the us president has upset everyone because she's missed it doesn't do claim to see like this was a. term from lord one of the rules of diplomacy on his whistle stop tour of europe went off piste and told the truth don't worry you threw in a friend you used to it was an astonishing performance he managed to piss european
7:39 am
allies and then in the interests of equality he desired citizens to diplomacy is the ruling in someone's face but nicely uses a method not found in any textbook he sobered up opponents and allies with a stream of clearly. provoke finishing the most with a laser going did truth about one of the most name terrorism for us to take a truthful he accused the e.u. of sticking washington with the bill of defending europe well nato members didn't like hearing that said out loud you see they prefer diplomatically considered criticism which they can diplomatically ignore next the diplomatic headed to britain where trumpeted already did the nation in advance by suggesting that the u.k. was in a spot of bragg's it in joost political turmoil. he politicians well
7:40 am
the ones on dealing with all the turmoil but is then trump wanted and face to face in helsinki and a mainstream america exploded which these are guys c'mon it's not a cold war anymore but one was called a traitor and he's a disgrace who apparently caused in doubt on the conclusion by the american intelligence services that russia meddled in the us elections. and m.p.'s a disgrace. he said the air was wrong. the day aloft and. he said he actually meant to say the exact opposite donald's desperate backtracking was the first sign of genuine diplomacy so we're not sure if bomb did trump a drop in the presence of it in he suggested the world's two largest nuclear powers should try to get along dear god mr president do you know nothing.
7:41 am
well a poem by nineteenth century british writer regard kipling has been removed by students of manchester university in the north west of england they claim the author who is best known for writing the jungle book was racist the poem if it was painted in a newly renovated building but was quickly criticized by students who said they should have been consulted before hand they say kipling's thought to legitimate the british empire presence in india and dehumanize people of color the student union apologized for the apparent oversight of verse from civil rights activists my angelo's still i rise was that has now replaced the poem so we decided to ask people in london about the students initiative. some students in manchester have defaced the mural of a rajab kipling poem because he was a racist and a colonialist according to them do you think that's right but having knowledge of
7:42 am
what they did or what i've been through i don't think that we should disregard them as people or that was because of an opinion they had the actually i think there been many great artists also in this museum been fighting this agenda steak and five problematic people in their private clothes but that doesn't necessarily mean that there are going to be that values but it also can mean that so it should be acknowledged and it should be they're open for discussion but the feel of the it shouldn't be censored everything in its harm period is significant in his own right . buteux we can look at those in different views and attitudes now this is it is a man of his time. and you've got to accept that that was his time today maybe not but you don't defer so you just go to agree with it but free speech is out the window if you do that's there's a really tricky when you have so far you go you know before you get out but we don't value them as a person i would say if we can learn a little bit from that you know that it was a bad thing to do you know it's not right now but still you know it's people did do
7:43 am
in the past it does get very difficult to draw a line then too and then you've got the women who wrote under men's names because they went out and allowed to. you know in that kind of sense you do we then republished their works under their original names kipling is not the only olfa whose work has been criticised recently here are a few more. to do with western material achievement and progress made no dent on the rounded sleep of china. wants to forgive me for all of my friends without his ever saying anything they were simply a little something shameful between us like the spilling. open up the horse a symbol fight. there is a trait in the jewish character that does provoke animosity maybe it's
7:44 am
a kind of lack of generosity towards none jews hitler didn't just pick on them for no reason. in the next in the jew and the jew versus your employer and you yourselves and jude the jew and the big jew has received every nation is wounded. but there's all the headlines this hour we'll be back at the top of the hour with all the latest join us then if you can. feel it. look as if you. must justice must. know that.

7:46 am
it's not targeting one particular side to this conflict it is broad it is focusing on identifying investigated. building five on sunday the most serious. to prepare the program i had to look at a lot of material listened to a lot of material and also read a lot of material that. it was appalling. and not only that when you get these images into your head and of course the images that i was you are far more graphic than anything i could include enough in a television. the new global economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education is being supplanted by the right to access education low high education is becoming
7:47 am
just another product that can be pulled and sold thundersnow just about education anymore it's also about running a business where you good. luck with this also kind of funny really couldn't you. want is the place of students in this business model before college i was born now and i'm extremely more higher education the new global economic wall. the show where americans in america covering american news are called foreign agents. i've recently covered the corruption of the trump administration done a lot in the past few weeks have called them disgusting i've called them greedy bastards i've called them a bucket with an i.q.

7:59 am
the latest hysteria does your for example robert muller just indicted twelve russians for supposedly orchestrating a cyber attack on the d.n.c. meanwhile a longtime veteran of the intelligence community and former weapons inspector scott ritter has published a column in troop dig this weekend titled the indictment of twelve russians under the shiny wrapping a political act and he points out that there is one major problem with the indictment it doesn't prove that which it asserts and it's not backed up by anything that demonstrates how these connections were made so who to trust will lead say scott ritter was a weapons inspector in iraq and said loudly and publicly that there were no weapons of mass destruction as you might recall our guy. from and then did not listen to him and as you might recall we then went on to kill a million people in iraq totally not cool. we did not play well with others we
8:00 am
we would fail kindergarten saw hard. for ours is. what robert voller what was he doing in the run up to the iraq war i'm glad you asked. secretary powell presented evidence last week that baghdad has failed to disorder its weapons of mass destruction and willfully attempting to evade and deceive the international community. our particular concern is that saddam hussein may supply terrorists with biological chemical or radiological material. well. that guy was really wrong he would he was more wrong than the guy who told disney to spend three hundred million on making john cargher words which was ultimately watched by seven people. if you include international nine people. as you saw in that clip robert muller helped us go into
8:01 am
iraq hell just kill a million people in iraq you know what i'm not going to take his word ever again that's what i've decided that was a good thing for anyone good to do that in fact in fact i don't think anyone should trust that guy on anything even years from now what he's in a retirement home and he tells his son where you have been an important. if i were his son. about they had tapioca they're going to. remember the wm do you think. so i hope that helps you all with your analysis of the situation moving on the inter-american court of human rights has ruled in support of julius songes freedom say yes. saying he deserves relief and safe passage but that hasn't stopped the british and ecuadorian authorities for entering into talks with the u.s. to a victim julian assigns i'm so sick of people saying from doesn't work with other
8:02 am
countries this is this is beautiful this is and our mainstream media and the democrats and the republicans in congress are all in just joyous agreement let's imprison and torture this charla's. joining together the world's artificial intelligence experts have joined together to sign a pledge aimed at averting a dystopian future with robots flying around and killing everybody. i'm totally were. you guys on that i really well let's not do the robot death squads thing i just you know lactose intolerant robot that's what intolerant. god set right so the problem is despite all these scientists joining together and say exist stop this weapons contractors say let's do the robot desk watch thing
8:03 am
that will make a lot of money from selling them to authoritarian regimes and what's the worst that could happen. was with the whole killer robots thing there is the problem of who do you prosecute for wrongdoing i mean you can't exactly prosecutor toaster for burning you. although i did i did once take a vibrating at a trial but you know funny story actually. you know another time another. however when it's when it's humans committing the crimes you can sometimes actually see justice this week a two year probe by the all party parliamentary group on drones claims that british military personnel could be prosecuted for murder and complicity in alleged war crimes which yeah. it's. it's an exciting development but again i would file that under. this what do you think just because
8:04 am
someone's pushing a bible instead of pulling a trigger it's no longer murder well you know you see it's not murder because i went like this. that. you see you see that you see the difference so you did this murder all right this. secretarial work that we have to go by grade the lobby right at. seventy four design. seven thousand pilings. to join judges. nine hundred sixty nonstop days a. russian w.b.

8:06 am
company alice room told them to sophie and tell him says the sheriff not said today we've got lots to talk about in our program and our guest is who've good luck that'll. cost like a comparison to the pay and brace of versus the us policies were so slow will trade so dollar trump goes to the global trading environment with the ability what leverage america's got to leverage in that economy and you can reshape the global economy they eat you can a went against the e.u. with no leverage they have a zero leverage against the e.u. therefore they've lost tragically against you and their colors being marginalized and isolated as a result of it they completely misstated our misunderstood there at the equation
8:07 am
between the u.k. and the e.u. when it comes to business and trade. for maneuver sitting in a car when the phipps gets shot in the head. all four different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row there's no way he could have done it there's no possible way. because the list did not shoot around a corner. welcome back welcome back if you didn't think it was possible for wal-mart to sink any lower with its use of overseas slave labor and abysmal treatment of their in-store labor then break out the shovels all right say they recently won a patent for an audio surveillance system that will spy on their employees
8:08 am
conversations with customers and i guess they figured while they're all the back prices they might as well roll back privacy rights you know got the roll back machine out for more on this we go to our senior walmart bathroom user now imagine . a only this is this is hard to believe recording workers is pretty standard i mean have you never heard the phrase this call may be monitored or recorded for quality assurance because as someone who was threatened physical violence against comcast customer service i've heard that phrase a lot. though not as much as the phrase you're not allowed within five hundred feet of this comcast office. ok but just because it's already happening doesn't make it ok or less authoritarian with well what's the point of this technology other than just to spy on americans that's all there is to increase worker efficiency and
8:09 am
wal-mart isn't exactly the beacon of speedy service i mean if they were they wouldn't hire greeters who look like they're with the high school was jesus. and they know jesus is the only person that could get you out of a wal-mart checkout line under thirty minutes it's why wal-mart says this audio surveillance technology could be used to monitor the performance of one or more employees at a time and measure one or more metric simultaneously like items per bag and line length blindly think guess creating work any combination. anything from an employee that isn't simple welcome to wal-mart could slow down the checkout process that's why it's important to monitor for problem phrases like how is your day going fellow human or. do you know you can get this for cheaper a target. for an hour or. i'll tell you where the walton family can shove their surveillance system. yeah yeah but this isn't

a sign of a fish and see it's a slippery slope in a modern slavery just a few months ago amazon patented a wristband that tracks their employees hand movements and buzzes them if they do something wrong. beverage to you in that respect and on trump's hand every time you sign an executive order. thank you thank you you know which ones suck because they don't look like he signed them during an earthquake. was. terrible decisions we devoid at work if we have those oh you want to second don't know what but. about the press an elevator button that's already been pressed but. using the office microwave to cook any fish. right this guy he only makes us better know it makes us robots for jobs that could be done by robots and it shows us how much workers rights have dissolved
8:11 am
wal-mart amazon workers could unionize they could fight this instead we have corporations who c.e.o.'s make thousands of times more than their employees and normalise wearable spyware next thing you'll tell me they have a patent on audio sensors in the bathroom so they can see how long employees take on this. i highly highly doubt that. not when i'm the one who has the patent on school stereo. dear god all right and as much as my cable cuts out i bet comcast employees are playing candy crush in the bathroom stall instead of pooping. stop klang games on the throne so i can watch game of thrones now and yet. next stop was going to shows us what not to do ireland has actually shown the world what we should be doing to break this down we sent correspondent john a phone doll to ireland and he filed this report. ireland
8:12 am
is a magical country full of ruin. and i'm not just saying that because my last name is o'donnell and as an american in i feel utterly disconnected from. and some overcompensating by romanticizing and idealizing a far off land especially relative to the box of corruption that my country has become that's what i'm doing i'm giving credit where credit is due the republic of ireland will become the world's first country to sell off its investments in basel fuel companies after a bill was passed with all party support in the lower house of parliament that's right ireland is the first twenty three in the world poised to divest from fossil fuel that's a big deal because climate change is
8:13 am
a real and serious issue. anyway i know it all you news junkies are thinking right now. didn't like norway divest from fossil fuels like last november. shun it now. norway's huge one trillion dollars sovereign wealth fund has only partially divested from fossil fuels. have you know your way to really hear that sends very often it's usually you trump or you wall street or you john stop swapping out my face cream for salsa cone case so it's gross come on ireland bring me back to my happy place ireland's decision to advance the boycott bill could be the tipping point for justice for palestine.
8:14 am
ireland said it recently passed the control of economic activity occupied territories bill which bans the importation of all products coming from the illegal israeli occupied territories in jerusalem and there was but a news. meanwhile in america our lawmakers are trying to pass the israel anti boycott act which would criminalize participation in certain political boycotts targeting israel. as so i think it's fair to say we're kind of going in the other direction on this one we're going in the repress free speech domestically in order to better prop up an apartheid regime abroad direction it's simple choice bold in its own cowardly sort of way. hey francis black the irish senator who introduced the boycott will knock my socks
8:15 am
off the occupied territories is a vying to piece of legislation it calls on our land to stand up for international human rights and justice in palestine these settlements built on occupied territory are war crimes they're condemned as illegal by our government and international courts empty rhetoric simply has not worked as long as we buy their stolen goods as long as they stay profitable noting will change day i'm not going to be on our socks were a month to do magic in any us politician ever standing up for palestinian rights like that even bernie sanders would be like. talk about. i just thought of something in addition to being irish i'm jewish on my mother's side i suddenly feel so toward the way judaism

8:20 am
up. a shaky cease fire is restored between hamas militants and israel after violent clashes on the gaza border raising fears of a full blown conflict in the region. a year after the complete liberation from islamic states the iraqi city of mosul still lies in ruins humanitarian groups point to a dangerous lack of health care for people in the city. and the level of destruction. is still very visible. infrastructure hasn't been repaired prostitutes have been reopened yes there's. less u.s. government funded radio liberty places in the outskirts on facebook in the united states despite a ban on targeting an american audience. a
8:21 am
warm welcome and a very good morning to you it's ten am here in the russian capital and you're watching r.t. international with me mickey aaron. now our top story after a recent spike in violence on the gaza border militant group hamas says it's agreed to a cease fire with israel violence escalated after an israeli soldier was killed that prompted a series of airstrikes on hamas positions we cannot cross live to our correspondent paula here for more on this paula good to see you a ceasefire is in place now do you think it will hold. well at this moment in time it is holding it's fair to say there isn't an easy calm that has descended along the israel gaza border that ceasefire went into effect at
8:22 am
midnight and we have heard from the israeli army that civilians who live along the israel gaza border can return to normal routine we're hearing the same message from her must folks person who says that they have agreed to return to the era of calm between israel and the palestinian factions as you mentioned it follows a night of heavy airstrikes conducted by the israeli air force over gaza they say they hit some sixty targets while at the same time three projectiles were fired at israel by palestinian militants now on friday they were again deadly clashes along the israel gaza border an israeli combat soldier was killed by a palestinian sniper and a friday deadline given by israel to him us in which it said that all awesome kites that were flown into israel had to cease came and went without those kites stopping so israel says that its actions were merely potentially create and it holds hamas responsible. the i.d.f. today's its like activity is treated by hamas throughout the last month with great
8:23 am
severity hamas choose to escape the security situation a move to the consequences for its actions. now for four months we've been witnessing clashes between palestinians and israeli soldiers along that israel gaza border yet again yesterday very turned deadly there are four palestinians who were killed and more than one hundred and thirty who were injured and they orchestrated under the banner of the great march of the term which palestinians say is really a protest against the israeli occupation here strikes that we saw last night who are among the worst we've witnessed since the two thousand and thirteen israel last go at the same time we have heard from the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu vowing to strike again they were strikes earlier in the weeks or what. witnessing now is just merely a continuation of the flare up in violence. during the summer we hit hard my policy is clear when anyone seeks to harm us we will strike back with great
8:24 am
force. now this is just the second ceasefire in some six days so of course the question is being asked whether or not a will hold egypt in the united nations brokered both cease fires and what we have heard from the united nations is that a massive full scale war was averted tensions on the ground however remain tense people are and easy and the question of course is if and when will be another showdown when i ask people here their question most people believe there will be a showdown is just a question of when. ok paula thank you for the update there started paulus speaking to us live from tel aviv. friday so israel's first casualty in the almost four months of protests on the gaza border four palestinians were also killed and more than one hundred twenty injured on the same day but total number of those killed since the start of the great march of return protests is now more than one hundred thirty gaza based journalist ten coote reports from the border.
8:25 am
nearly one hundred fifty meters away from carney the fans and as you see the palestinian youths protesters are describing and expressing expressing their rage by climbing this fans. i have to say that this is one of the hardest days we have been covering the protests on weekly bases for boy than five months we saw explosions on both sides scores were injured it's very dangerous and this was one of the to face days we have ever witnessed by live i mean should tear gas airstrikes and a lot in a lot of more weapons the israelis have been using against the palestinians
8:26 am
political commentator and there are nuns the former director of a palestinian civil rights organization most an apu ramadan shed their fuse on the recent conflicts. hundreds of palestinians if you accumulate the numbers have either died or been injured at the demonstrations but this is not happened because israel has used force. to the contrary israel only reacted and israel tried to keep the entire border quiet it is not in its interest to try and repair old hundred. number of but the scene and war show did differ on that either soldiers without any dangers. from them to theirs or you the searchers the adjuster is saying slogans and. voices and asking the international community at over to brush up to israel to end that she'd get to freedom of

movement and commodities to the bitter stina to live as normal people. in the human being and live in. and to learn. it's been a year since the iraqi city of mosul was liberated from islamic state the city had been the terror group's defacto capital in the country for nearly three years artie's raptly agency visited the city. i think it will be unfair to say that nothing has changed but what we what we go for is that the change should happen more quicker we see that's the level of destruction that happened a year ago is still very visible every infrastructure hasn't been repaired yet most people haven't been reopened yet there's a lack of water. electricity. going back and potentially finding their bodies in your house in your street i think that
8:28 am
that's george appears very devastating because once again you're confronted to it's always horrible things that happen in mosul you know yes there are two bodies still down there and there are four more bodies in that house behind us is still inside the stench coming from them is very strong children are getting sick because of this. set and there were six of us my daughter was killed we lived in the house after the airstrikes i just couldn't live there anymore. i don't know them. but they said we're not going to treat her our priority is the fight is we can give her an injection so she dies immediately that have her to die
8:29 am
at home. the horror of war can also be seen in the syrian city of raka the bodies of more than one thousand two hundred civilians the majority of them women and children have been discovered in three mass graves there is claims they were killed when the u.s. led coalition bombed the area it was done of has the details. tobar will mark exactly one year since i saw defeat in their caliphate self-proclaimed capital rocker and months after the u.s. coalition's victory restored or freed of torment the syrian city is still not these are the latest pictures from one of three recently discovered mars graves these burial sites contain more than
8:30 am
a thousand bodies. and there are three hundred to four hundred bodies in this mass grave three to four catacombs are completely full of did bodies and grief and despair still has the syrian city reeling as relatives time and time again have to identify their loved ones. excluded the body of only one of my sisters the other four remain missing i don't know where they were burned by my uncle now we're looking for the uncle to cope find them. the majority of the bodies are civilians mostly women and children our team works twenty four hours a day whether a civilian or a fighter we give the body a number well this number is over a thousand down and that's just in the three recently discovered mass graves it's a race against time and they're ready to earn their more time passes the harder it is to identify the bodies as they rot in the ground nameless families help us
8:31 am
identify the civilians by telling us what the person was wearing were by describing a ring or watch where a tattoo why didn't define a lot of bodies through the hair because it doesn't disintegrate and mass graves of rocca highlight not only eyesores monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's denial in its responsibility for the city's tragedy because it has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty thousand rounds and third rule thousand strikes it lou. since a rock a city the blustery didn't or as a contradicted by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures it's hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these were taking only
8:32 am
a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s. led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble that was that an effect in washington we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew little but i knew that if the aircraft bomb using phosphorus it targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brendan lee if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down and you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more musgrave's are still
8:33 am
to be found houses of people who were killed your. city. maybe were buried has to leave but also many remain in the rubble or at least in mass graves each one has to military doesn't is true hundreds of bodies of ministry are too big such as to beaches but that's what we know for years are struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because there are many of the gated to conduct examinations because the mines around there it is clear for one. you have seen on the ground that they are working to exhibit bodies need far more creating a technical assistance but until someone answers the pleas of ruckus citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh. radio liberty a media outlet funded by the u.s. government has placed an ad first on facebook it was quickly noted that the outlet
8:34 am
is prohibited from placing ads that target a u.s. audience caleb maupin explains now it turns out that one news outlet has been forced to remove its political ads from facebook was the u.s. government's own radio free europe aka radio liberty here's an extract from their mission statement which of course you can find on their website which ends in dot. a mission is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where free press is banned by the government or not fully established journalists provide what many people cannot get locally uncensored news responsible discussion an open debate perhaps they consider the united states to be one of those countries that doesn't have a free press after all the ads were specifically targeted at americans now facebook says the ads were not political which is rather interesting as they were
8:35 am
specifically related to recent controversies regarding trump and in nato. sixty one percent of the surveyed population in twelve countries view nato favorably it's actually illegal for federally funded news outlets under the umbrella of the broadcast board of governors to direct their content at an american audience the only exception is by special request and there was none in the case of radio liberty after new york times journalists raised a red flag the board of governors deleted the ads none of the b.b. g. now where should be distributing or promoting our content massacree in order to develop or grew domestic audiences but why would facebook allow ads about nato to begin with this is just after facebook has imposed strict rules regarding commercials with political content in the united states r.t. materials frequently banned and that's even when it's not directed at an american
8:36 am
audience. and issue ads on facebook and instagram in the u.s. must be clearly labeled including a paid for by disclosure from the advertiser at the top of the ad it turns out that the rules about what constitutes a political ad are pretty big as far as facebook is concerned any r.t. news related to the usa is a political advert meanwhile a commercial specifically talking about how everyone loves nato is not now russian scholar shonda laurie recently tried to promote in an interview about his recently published compendium of coverage of donald trump from russian magazines and newspapers face book shut him down for his book one to prove my for this book cost apparently what the russian press thinks of trump is dangerous information there's a double standard if you want to break the rules to help defend freedom ok
8:37 am
which is which is really not possible it's illogical they've constantly lived in this state of a false reality where. it's ok to propagandize and to blanket the rest of the world with a cia funded message but it's not ok for russia to finance or to partially even finance a great television network that's competitive with the b.b.c. for news no permission why is that not ok all this talk about fake news and propaganda has put the us political establishment and tech giants like facebook in a pretty difficult spot basically they've been reduced to saying we can't promote it if we don't agree with it caleb oppen r t new york. both facebook and the broadcasting board of governors are yet to comment on the situation we will update you on their response as soon as we get it students at a university in england will move a poem from a campus building describing the author as
8:38 am
a racist i'll bring you the details after this quick break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is on offer and spearing dramatic developments only loosely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
8:39 am
welcome back off the white house announced it's inviting russian president vladimir putin to washington the media is still trying to come to terms with trump style of diplomacy boyko breaks down what's been dubbed the worst week for trump's foreign policy. the u.s. president has upset everyone because she casey risked it doesn't do claim to see like this was a. term from lord one of the rules of diplomacy on his whistle stop tour of europe went off piste and told the truth don't worry you threw in
8:40 am
a few you tube it was an astonishing performance he managed to piss european allies and then in the interests of equality he has his own citizens to diplomacy is the ruling in someone's face but nicely uses a method not found in any textbook he still says opponents and allies with a stream of clearly. finishing the most with a laser going did truth is not just one of the latest neither was it for us to take a truthful here's the e.u.'s sticking washington with the bill of defending europe well nato members didn't like hearing that said out loud you see they prefer diplomatically considerate criticism which they can diplomatically ignore next the diplomatic headed to britain where trumpeted already in the nation in advance by suggesting that the u.k. was in a spot of bragg's it in joost political turmoil. he politicians well the
8:41 am
ones on dealing with all the turmoil that is then trump wanted and face to face in helsinki and a mainstream america exploded not that these are guys c'mon it's not a cold war anymore but one was called a traitor and he's a disgrace for apparently costing doubt on the conclusion by the american intelligence services that russia meddled in the us elections. and m.p.'s are a disgrace. he said the air was wrong. the day off to the. he said he actually meant to say the exact opposite donald's desperate backtracking was the first sign of genuine diplomacy he showed so much truth but did trump drop in the presence of it in he suggested the world's two largest nuclear powers should try to get along dear god mr president do you know
8:42 am
nothing. trumps diplomacy also drew attention during the recent korean nuclear crisis artie's going underground spoke to a musician who recently played at a festival in the demilitarized zone between the two koreas glen matlock former member of punk rock band the sex pistols. he played at the demilitarized yeah i'm a amongst a bunch of overpaid was obvious just kind of guy in our very best musician to try and share some solidarity through our anger and cousins i didn't suck on island and i think the whole thing had become a bit of course the guy in a nope of himself you know despicable with his boss thing he found himself painted into a corner not really understand why nothing anything that can be done to open the door of a chain you know k'naan about how it was this before would signal be used out of
8:43 am
this thing the south before everything happened with the media as you've sold instantly yes and there's a whole bunch of paper involved in it just trying to bring some awareness to it i want to go and find out for myself i've never been sick or before in a kind of quiet and so i didn't know the. merest soul who's for me said to become the proprietor of the come up on the try interests of the day in the zeds on the d.m.z. zone a neighbor sign how we met him at the station and how he hoped that in a couple of years time if everything goes all right it will become so international stuff from what i was going to work out and support the light needs to go to what i must go on on the boat and maybe one day i will even come to london but come because i can't run that there france is with north korea and the pota stop the funny guy. but then even i doubt that matt thank you.

a poem by a british writer revealed kipling has been removed by students at manchester university in the north west of england they claim the author who is best known for writing the jungle book was racist the poem if it was penned in nineteen zero nine was painted on a wall in a newly renovated building but was quickly criticised by students who said they should have been consulted before hand they say kipling's thought to the just in the british empire presence in india and dehumanized people of color the student union apologized for the apparent oversight a verse from civil rights activist my angelo's still i rise has now replaced the poem we asked people in london about the students initiative. some students in manchester have defaced a mural of a raja kipling poem because he was a racist and a colonialist according to them do you think that's right well public knowledge of what they did or whatever but i don't think that we should disregard the most
8:45 am
people or that was just because of an opinion they have the actually i think there been many great artists also in this museum been fired mr chin estate and five problematic people in their private clothes but that doesn't necessarily mean that there are countries that values but it also can mean that so it should be acknowledged and it should be they're open for discussion but the for the it shouldn't be censored everything in its heart and period is significant in its own rights. you know we can look at those and different views and attitudes now this is it is a man of his time. and you've got to accept that that was his time today maybe not where you go to first you just go to agree with it cost free speech out the window if you do that's really tricky when you have so far you go you know before you get out but we can value them as a person i would say if you can learn a little bit from that you know that it was a bad thing to do you know it's not right now but still you know it's people doing the past it does get very difficult to draw

the host of the big picture holland cook and conservative t.v. and radio commentator steve smalls for plus president trouble met with business leaders yesterday we'll look at the skills gap plus we talk about the fed and some economic projections with danielle de martino the c.e.o. of will intelligence were jampacked the way to get right to it u.s. president donald trump has found a new target for criticism the federal reserve that we're just mentioning mr trump aired his grievances on thursday in an interview with c.n.n. d.c. take a listen i've got a very good man in the fed i don't necessarily agree with it be cause he's raising interest rates i'm not saying that i agree with it and i don't really say that i must tell you i don't. i'm not thrilled because you know we go up and every time you go up they want to raise rates again and i don't really i am not happy about it but at the same time i'm letting them do what they feel is best. and despite that nod to the fed's independence at the end of mr trump's comments there today he
8:50 am
criticized the fed again on twitter complaining that quote the us is raising rates while the dollar gets stronger and stronger with each passing day taking away our big competitive advantage the fed is slowly raised rates since late two thousand and fifteen higher interest rates tend to support a stronger dollar which makes u.s. exports relatively less affordable abroad mr trump's critics were upset by him and his lack of deference rather to the unwritten policy of avoiding comment on fed decisions that begin during the clinton administration and federal reserve president from st louis president jim boehlert said the comments would not affect the fed's decisions on interest rates but others still fear that the fed choices will now be second guessed to an even higher degree. we have seen record bank profits some of which we reported here on the program earlier in the week at the same time we see continuing calls for relaxing regulation in the financial sector
8:51 am
and even things like stress tests conducted by the federal reserve which are meant to guard against another government big bank bailout and here to discuss is a former banker herself she's also the author of collusion how central bankers rid the world nomi prins know me thank you for being with us again we sure appreciate it the big banks have never made more money than right now does that surprise you. well now they've had ten years of being subsidized by the federal reserve by the policies that have allowed them to mass a lot of extra capital the quantitative easing policies that even though they have tapered off still have amassed a multi-trillion dollar book of assets from the banks to the fed over the last ten years and as a result they've been able to buy their own stock with the blessing of the fed pay dividends to shareholders to buy their own stock and to invest in complex securities and activities that enable them to extract high fees from their
8:52 am
businesses which in turn produce bigger profits for the. u.s. sort of nutty i want to get into some of the details a little bit yes for your help in trying to explain some of it earlier in the week a federal reserve chair jay powell took some heat on the senate side at least from some democrats elizabeth warren idea some others and sherrod brown the ranking democrat on the committee for rolling back the so-called stress test and on these supplemental leverage ratio and i know those seem like they may be complicated for folks but they have a lot to do with what you were just talking about and the white the fact that the chairman said the chair apollo said that these stress tests were tougher than ever that really doesn't seem to be the case explain what these stress tests are and what the federal reserve has done to relax them. well first of all these stress tests which were part of the requirement by the frank act of twenty ton to require banks to basically pass. a certain level of the amount of capital or reserves that
8:53 am
they need to have in their possession or with the fed in order so that if there isn't another emergency we don't have to have a bailout and we don't have to have another ten years of additional fed subsidies to support the liquidity and this sort of operations of the banking system the thing about the stress test of course though is even though chairman powell is talking about how they are stronger than ever the reality is that banks are involved in helping to create these stress tests and a lot of the things that the stress tests miss are the very things that caused the last financial crisis there the co-dependence sees amongst the banks the leverage or the borrowing the banks provide to each other or at the back of certain securities or transactions in which they are involved and these stress tests don't necessarily really stress. those codependency those links between banks so that means if one particular transaction fails dramatically in one institution if another institution has exposure to it because they're dealing with
8:54 am
that first institution say bank of america which a.p. morgan chase then they are also on the hook and those are the types of things that actually these stress tests don't really accommodate in there the biggest pitfalls and dangers that really to a financial crisis potentially so that's really been off the table anyway throughout the most of these stress tests but the fact that they've passed them and they have enough leverage they've reduced their leverage enough supposedly to pass them is because of the very way that they're constructed and the fact that they've been subsidized by the fed for so long because so there's two things there there's the contagion impact that you say properly calibrated between the banks but then there's also the leverage ratio and it's that leverage ratio that has been reduced and and that has to do with the amount of cap. but all that the banks would have on hand should something take place and and how they would go about what we call a what they call a what i used to call a living will that is what happens in the event that the bank has to go under and
8:55 am
how do you deal with it without that contagion now that leverage ratio if you can explain a little bit more but it's the relaxation of that leverage ratio that i understand led the fed to approve the disbursement of funds from the banks and dividends and stock buybacks so i have that right. that's right so so first of all it's the fed that has the right the job of approving or deciding not to approve when banks come to the fed and say look we want to use the capital that we have or extra capital that we have instead of doing so bank lending activities to buy back our own shares to provide higher dividends incentives to our shareholders and so forth and the fed can either say yes or no and this is historic this is even before the stress tests were created with the advent of the stress test the fed now has a sort of extra measure where they can say oh you passed these stress tests as we've created them and we've reduced the amount of capital you have to hold anyway
8:56 am
as part of this new round of stress tests so given those two things yes you have enough capital to buy your own stock and to pay dividends or higher dividends on your own share so it's kind of a circular relationship that these private banks have with the fed who test them but also suggests that they don't necessarily need as much leverage or they passed their leverage test as the tests have been constructed and therefore they can use that extra capital to buy their own shares it's one of the reasons we've seen in the last week all of the shares of the banks or most of the banks rise first because they've had high profits but second because they are going to or have began to begun to start to buy more and more of their own shares they've already bought millions billions of sort of last week last year and so forth but now they're going to continue into the rest of this year and that's basically providing them additional lift to their prices you know you're right we talked about these bank profits earlier in the week and a couple of them because they were sort of symmetrical i recall b.
8:57 am
of a was a thirty three percent growth in q two and you're one of your former employers goldman sachs was forty four percent that's forty four percent just in the second quarter i mean gosh you know we take any of the of that any part of that for any one of our investments but one of the reasons that people say that they're doing so well the banks is that we had this large tax cut. two hundred trillion bucks worth an active late last december in the economy seems to be you know bolstered by that purring along at least for the most part but but the fed forecast for the long term growth is now just one point eight percent g.d.p. yet it was the same one point eight percent last year at this time so my question to you would be what do we have to show for the tax cuts nomi. well what you've basically discussed with those numbers is something i've been talking about for a long time which is that quantitative easing or providing extra capital to corporations of particular banking sector doesn't necessarily make its way into the
8:58 am
real economy or certainly not in a sustainable long term growth type of type of manner and so what those figures say it's interesting because at first the fed was talking into a paul was talking as he first came into the position of the chair earlier this year about how growth was high there was predictions of there for a potentially an increased rate of acceleration in hiking rates and so forth and talk of inflation rising and so forth and now that there's been a few rate increases this year it's. been dialed back and the expectations of growth are now all of a sudden a little bit less than they were to begin with so basically what the fed is saying by that is that their policies haven't really helped by extension they are saying that the tax cuts even though they have talked about them as potentially helping and in addition relative to stimulate the economy as has the administration as has various members of the government media so forth haven't really made their way into sustainable growth at all into the economy they've made their way into shares
8:59 am
they've made their way into the stock market into financial assets because there has been extra capital taken off the table by these companies particular ones that have really great accountants and you know stuff that people can figure out how not to just take the corporate tax cuts for their face value but also sort of expand upon them and terms of the capital they can save and then reuse for for their own shares and so forth and that's exactly what we've seen in the market it's not what we've seen in the real economy because the what happens in the market simply doesn't go into the real economy what happens in the growth strategy of a company and increasing wages for a company in expansions of a company would go into the real economy but simply using that capital to lift share prices or to to back to use as collateral for issuing extra debt and so forth . doesn't go into the real economy and neither has the ten years of the subsidies the feds provided to the banking system i keep repeating that but it's very important to know therefore to have trillion dollars of subsidies for the banking system and that also hasn't created
9:00 am
a sustained real growth at the sort of foundational level of the economy and certainly not in wages and so forth what we do know about the tax cuts nomi is that you know our grandkids and it's two trillion dollars that's we're not going to dig out of that hole any time soon and while i'm a supporter of you know people investing in capital markets and certainly getting dividends when they can about a third of the stock investment the u.s. is actually from folks outside of the u.s. so it's not it's not just not making it into the u.s. real economy it's not making the you a current u.s. economy at all so my question is when you talk about real economy how about wages we don't see much improvement on wages despite the good economy and workers' shares of income are getting smaller over the years what about that all of that that's a direct extension really of of this phenomenon that that capital is going into the financial markets whether it's coming from domestically or whether it's coming from internationally. and that capital is being is to elevate
9:01 am
a certain perception of the books of corporations but it's not being used to give to the employees and therefore the wages are not increasing excellent nomi prins author of collusion how central banks rigged the world thanks for joining us appreciate it no me. thank you. time now for a quick break but stay with us because when we get back to holland cook and steve help us sort out what all the media merger madness means and we have to the question is local media on its death bed danielle be more to you know the c.e.o. of google intelligence help us look at the dead end jobs and why have a meeting at the white house with business leaders as we go to break here are the daily doses of the closing bell already arrows on the stock as we go into the weekend we'll be right back.
9:02 am
after the war a nazi doctor was still active. in the nineteen seventies croteau had as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery it's a german company developed thalidomide a drug that was promoted as completely safe even during pregnancy it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby is anything but. you know she said she's just got choked up minix a little mind victims have to this day received no compensation they never apologized for the suffering that not only want the money i want the revenge. to prepare the program i had to look at a lot of material listened to a lot of material and also read a lot of material that. was appalling. and not only that when you get these
9:03 am
images into your head and of course the images that i was you know far more graphic than anything i could include in a in a television. for a man or sitting in a car when the fifth good shot of the. four different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row there's no way you could have done it there's no possible way because the list did not shoot around a corner. the world of media is changing as we've reported on the giant media merger madness that seems to be going on almost a daily basis and one question is if too much is being paid for some of these
9:04 am
companies and will that make them on viable and what about local content is it gone forever for more we turn to the host of the big picture here in r t america veteran media consultant holland cook and our friend conservative t.v. and radio commentator steve wallace thank you both for joining guys holland i heart media is one media venture that hasn't worked out like paul and perhaps there was too much money paid invested there give us the background on how this giant conglomerate even took place the original sin was committed late at night in one nine hundred ninety six attack down to an otherwise unrelated telecom act was radio deregulation and the simple story is that one company had a ration of stations they were allowed to own a dozen and no more than four in one city now one company could own as many stations as they want they can now have as many as eight in one city so it became a seller's market and local radio the beloved mom and pop independent
9:05 am
operators that made radio so delightfully local probably had no intention of selling their all down in west palm now because along came clear channel now called i heart and some of the other big groups. who wildly overpaid in this feeding frenzy and ever since they've been burning their furniture to keep the lights on because the mortgage is just untenable and that's why it's hard to find local news or local d.j.'s on a lot of am f.m. stations and steve we always talk about you conservative t.v. and radio commentator you've hosted programs on some of these stations and and even where you are we look at the background there in our studio in new york i mean a lot of local content been lost there right oh yeah absolutely i mean i was on the w. a.b.c. at one point rush limbaugh sean hannity mark levin john bachelor all now some of the biggest syndicated shows that go all over the country and occupy radio slots
9:06 am
all over the country at the expense of local programming they were all local shows that w. a.b.c. at one point and that's just one example plus i had an overnight show you don't get live overnight on stations anymore either you have syndicate couple of syndicated shows that take up all the air time overnight. steve speak to this whole overbidding and what's going on we see the the bids first sky the high sky prices for sky and other media then use bring us up to speed on what's going on between five and comcast and does the and and try to untangle that weird web for us well comcast of course finally just recently dropped out of the bidding for fox does they will be buying the assets of fox so that's clear and done for a lot of reasons comcast couldn't afford it after a while also they were afraid and so was rupert murdoch that it wouldn't pass the f.c.c. should i say antitrust muster here in the in the united states with the regulators
9:07 am
so they wanted the disney deal they got that there's a deal now the new gem here is sky sky is a pay per view content provider throughout europe five countries twenty five million subscribers and fox owns thirty nine percent of sky so dizzy. good to acquire thirty nine percent of sky disney would like the rest of it comcast would like to buy sky contest is probably going to get the sixty one percent that disney is in good to get so they're going to have two companies that are going to have to work together or or here's a solution that's being bandied about hulu an o t t of course you know hulu that provides programming as well through streaming and webs and internet etc this thing already owns thirty percent approximately comcast own thirty percent fox owns the rest so this is going to wind up owning over sixty percent of hulu so comcast will keep their thirty how about comcast gives their rest of hulu to disney disney owns
9:08 am
all of hullo and the thirty nine percent of sky goes to contests comcast will own all of sky now that sounds complicated that ain't nothing because it was much worse and more complicated before they did for comcast dropped out of fox yeah so that lawyer they are but you know you did a great job of untangling it for us and it to us you know when you talk about all these companies and you mention hulu you know holland when we look at satellite radio and streaming and and all the consolidation taking place i mean are we simply is it inevitable we're going down this road to bigger is supposedly better have we lost local content forever holland well the timing couldn't have been worse for big corporate radio to dumb down the local programming it was the perfect storm i pod was the shiny object back then and now we have sirius x.m. what you mentioned pandora streaming downloads there was never
9:09 am
a more important time for broadcasters to do something unique to be local for years we have seen warren buffett buying up small town newspapers a lot of that's driven by high school sports he has content you can't get anywhere else. i'd be lieve that as these big companies begin to deal lever they're going to sell the smallest markets first and things have a way of working out and that there will be a new generation of mom and pop independent broadcasters who resumed the local programming that made am f.m. radio so special i sort of hope that happens i mean i love free enterprise but i sort of hope it happens and hala just real quick we've only got a little bit of time but sinclair broadcasting group which operates in the neighborhood of two hundred t.v. station the us is still smarting from that embarrassing script where they asked the anchors to all say a certain thing but they're trying to buy tribune media but the f.c.c.
9:10 am
chairman pai is sort of throwing up roadblocks what's going on with that well that viral video of all the local anchors parroting the same script from headquarters really was an embarrassment because with all the talk about fake news and the trump bluster the media has lost respect and that last bastion of respectable media is local content so sinclair has got some got some to do and chairman piii himself has been under investigation for perhaps improper contact with the sinclair people as he was opening the door by deregulating various aspects that would have made that tribune merger possible so he is now backing away and he wants an administrative law judge to decide whether or not the sinclair tribune deal happens steve real quick what's your take they were big supporter said. sinclair of trump what about it well what they're objecting to now
9:11 am
what the f.c.c. is objecting to at the sale of three stations in chicago dallas and used in all going to an owner of that has that have ties to each other that you know it's kind of different owners but they all have a common interest and that's really what's what's holding it up so if they could. rectify that and with the help of the large judge as to how it alluded to i think this could still get done well i think we've untangled about as much as we can in our time allotted we thank you both conservative t.v. and radio commentator steve walther and the host of the big picture our t.v.'s holland cook thank you both guys you're back to masha. and we've spoken about the skills gap in the united states on the program before that the gap between the the jobs that are available and the people who possess the skills and the aptitude to do those jobs well yesterday business leaders from bunch of fortune five hundred companies met with us president donald trump at the white house and pledged to train three point eight million workers over the next five years and the president
9:12 am
also signed an executive order on job creation that established something called the american workforce policy advisory board which is charged with bringing together governors business executives and educators to tackle this problem and good for the president in this regard to be focusing on the issues are important to continuing economic growth and the only coffee out to my praise and i do praise the president in this regard is that the new advisory board is not funded no dinero for it and speaking of not funding things the president's budget request to congress called for a forty percent cut in skin programs that train and retrain workers from two point seven billion dollars to one point six billion and look to me the problem requires all stakeholders doing their part and that includes the federal government should be honest about it and hear talk about jobs the economy and the federal reserve which is that in the news this week is danielle de martino both the author of fed up why the federal reserve is bad for america and the c.e.o.
9:13 am
of quill intelligence and that daily feather that we love to read danielle thanks for being with us we are at an almost fifty year low on unemployment in fact last week was the lowest level of americans seeking unemployment benefits it's nine hundred sixty nine all excellent news but we are not at full employment and some think well we can never get there but can we or can we get closer at least considering what the available jobs are and the current makeup of our workforce. no i don't think we can get there bart and i think that is why a lot of these larger companies have finally begun to recognize the economies in which in which they are doing business in the main economy in which these american companies are doing business is the united states i think they're beginning to realize that they're going to have to go hand in hand with the federal government that it is low on cash as you just mentioned and begin to help through public private partnerships retrain
9:14 am
a lot of these american workers who are just too young to even contemplate retiring but don't have the skills necessary to fill the open positions so i'm actually very gratified by some of the steps that are being taken here where i am in dallas for example where toyotas corporation is headquartered they take bright promising high school seniors who might not have this the opportunity to attend a four year college they put them through a two and a half year mechanical training program and they come out at the other end of the pipeline with a full time job a toilet and job security and skills that can transfer into the future we need to see more of this bart i'm happy that we're starting to see more partnerships emerging i'm with you and i know a lot of these exist but the more focus we can put on it so i do give the president kudos for that as well make sure it really happens that the money's there for it and maybe it'll come with this partnership danielle from the from the private sector and maybe congress will go ahead and fund all the all the money for these
9:15 am
programs let's shift a little bit to something that i just love that you talk about that quick rate where you know there's so many jobs out there that some people i think you're saying are just quit explain it to us well i call it the take this job and shove it right as if it's workers feel that they're really i mean well i'm going back to a country song from the one nine hundred seventy s. i remember i we were in the same. there you go so you know if workers feel empowered such that they're able to quit their jobs and right now we're seeing some of the highest quit rates we've seen for the entire economic recovery that is a sign that they feel that they can hopscotch from one job to another and get higher pay and it's vis is good news for the american worker who has as we just talked about the requisite skills that it's not good news for employers because that means that they're going to have to pay up in order to either retain these
9:16 am
employees who are threatening to quit or they're going to have to pay up to get new employees but again the solution here is really easy it's to train the millions of workers who are willing to do jobs but don't have the skills then you know we so much appreciate you being here we don't even get too much into the fed but we'll hope to have you back soon that's danielle de martino both the c.e.o. of quill intelligence danielle thanks have a great weekend. thank you your two. and that's it for this time thanks for being with us you can catch boom bust or you tube dot com slash boom bust r.t. will see. the new global economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education is being supplanted by the right to access education low it's high
9:17 am
education is becoming just another product that can be bought and sold but it's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business and what you're good at the regime look good it's also the kind of fellow they couldn't. want is the place of students in this business model before college i was born now and i'm extremely bored higher education for the new global economic war. forman are sitting in a car when the phipps gets shot in the head. all four different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row there's no way you could have done it there's no possible way because the list did not shoot around a corner. and. independence
9:18 am
means that you're not going to take instruction from any of the fighting and we know that in the situation of syria the state of agenda the mandate that was given to us is broad it's not targeting one but to put aside to this conflict it is broad it is focusing on identifying investigated person building five months and the most serious. does it. feel to. look as if you. know that. you. have to. do it
9:19 am
a little. this is. the thing you go to the religiously you do it. all first of all it's only about the walking on the other. full to one of them i mean my colleagues all. really i. mean it is bad. for our safety that they cannot ride it. was roughly. double. it i.
9:20 am
come up. shaky cease fire is restored between hamas militants found israel after a violent clashes on the gaza border raising fears of a full blown conflict in the region. a year after the complete liberation from islamic state iraqi city of mosul still lies in ruins humanitarian groups point to a dangerous lack of health care for people in the fifty's. we see that the level of destruction and your goal is still very visible. and infrastructure hasn't been repaired or schools have been reopened gets very. close u.s. government funded radio liberty places an adverse on face book in the united states
9:21 am
up to spite a ban on targeting an american audience. a warm welcome and a very good morning to you it's eleven am here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international with me caring. for our top story after a recent spike in violence on the gaza border militant group hamas says it's agreed to a cease fire with israel violence escalated after an israeli soldier was killed that prompted a series of airstrikes on harass positions there have been fears of an all out confrontation as artie's paula slayer explains. there is an easy calm that has descended along the israel gaza border that ceasefire went into effect at midnight and we have heard from the israeli army that civilians who live along the israel gaza border can return to normal routine we're hearing the same message from the hamas folks person who says that they have agreed to return to the era of calm
9:22 am
between israel and the palestinian factions it follows a night of heavy air strikes conducted by the israeli air force over gaza they say they hit some sixty targets while at the same time three projectiles were fired at israel by palestinian militants and israeli combat soldier was killed by a palestinian sniper and a friday deadline given by israel to her months in which it said that all awesome kites that were flown into israel had to cease came and went with those kites israel says that its actions would merely retaliate and it holds hamas responsible the i.d.f. used to do the whole store activity is treated by hamas throughout the last month with great severity hamas chose to the security situation a move the consequences for its actions last night strikes were the worst we've seen since two thousand and fourteen really between israel and hamas in that war more than two thousand palestinians were killed and seventy three israelis now
9:23 am
there was an israeli air strike a heavy israeli air strike earlier in the week we are hearing from the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that he will continue to strike back at her masts during the sabbath if we hit hard our policy is clear when anyone seeks to harm us we will strike back with great force this is just the second ceasefire in some six days so of course the question is then asked whether or not it will hold egypt in the united nations brokered both cease fires and what we have heard from the united nations is that a massive full scale war was averted tensions on the ground however the main tense people are using and the question of course is if and when will be another showdown when i ask people here their question most people believe there will be a showdown is just a question of when. friday's thaw israel's first casualty in the almost four months of protests on the gaza border four palestinians were also killed and more than one hundred twenty injured on the same day the total number of those killed since the
9:24 am
start of the great march of return protests is now more than one hundred thirty girls a based journalist to reports from the border. nearly one hundred fifty meters away from carney the fence and as you see the palestinian youths protesters are describing and expressing it expressing their rage by climbing this fence. i have to say that this is one of the hardest days we have been covering. the protests on weekly basis for boy been five months we saw explosions on both sides scores were injured it's very dangerous and this was one of the tough race days we
9:25 am
have ever witnessed by live ammunition here guys airstrikes and a lot in a lot of more weapons the israelis have been using against the palestinians political commentator and they are in and the former director of the palestinian civil rights organization most an apu ramadan shed their views on the recent conflict. hundreds of palestinians if you accumulate the numbers have either died or been injured at the demonstrations but this is not happened because israel has used force. to the contrary israel only reacted and israel tried to keep the entire border quiet it is not in its interest to try and repel. number of but the scene and war show did differ on that either soldiers without any dangers. from them to theirs or you the searchers they are
9:26 am
just raising slogans and. voices and asking the international community it over to brush up those are it to intercede get to freedom of movement and promote it as to the or the senior to live as normal people. in the human being and live in the. it's been a year since the iraqi city of mosul was liberated from islamic state this is he had been the terror group's defacto capital in the country failed nearly three years artie's raptly agency visit the city. i think it will be unfair to say that nothing has changed but what we what we go for is that the change should happen more quicker we see that's the level of destruction that happened a year ago is still very visible evident infrastructure hasn't been repaired yet most people haven't been reopened yet there's a lack of water there's a lack of electricity.
9:27 am
going back and potentially finding their bodies in your house in your street i think that that's psychologically is very devastating because once again you're confronted to it's always horrible things that happen in mosul you know yes there are two bodies still down there and there are four more bodies in that house behind us is still inside the stench coming from them is very strong children are getting sick because of this. sit in a fog there was six of us my daughter was killed we lived in the house after the airstrikes i just couldn't live there anymore. i don't know them. but they said we're not going to treat her priority is the fight
9:28 am
is we can give her an injection so she dies immediately that if her to die at home . the horror of war can also be seen in the syrian city of rocca the bodies of more than one thousand two hundred civilians the majority of them women and children who've been discovered in three mass graves there is claims they were killed when the u.s. led coalition bombed the area it was done of has the details. tobar will mark exactly one year since i saw defeat in their caliphate self-proclaimed capital rocker and months after the u.s. coalition's victory restored or freed of torment the syrian city is still not
9:29 am
these are the latest pictures from one of three recently discovered mars graves these birrell sites contain more than a thousand bodies. and there are three hundred to four hundred bodies in this mass grave three to four catacombs are completely full of did bodies grief and despair still has the syrian city reeling as relatives time and time again have to identify their loved ones. excluded the body of only one of my sisters the other four remain missing i don't know where are the who they were buried by my uncle now we're looking for the uncle to cope find them. the majority of the bodies are civilians mostly women and children our team works twenty four hours a day whether a civilian or a fighter we give the body a number well this number is over a thousand now and that's just to the three recently discovered mass graves it's
9:30 am
a race against time and they're ready to earn their more time passes the harder it is to identify the bodies as they rot in the ground nameless families help us identify the civilians by telling us what the person was wearing were by describing a ring or watch where it had to wade into final lot of bodies through the hair because it doesn't disintegrate and mass graves of roc-a highlight not only i saw as monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's denial in its responsibility for the city's tragedy because it has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty thousand rounds and third rule thousand strikes it. since a rock a city the blustery didn't contradicted by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures it's hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all
9:31 am
it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these were taking only a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s. led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble there was that an effect in washington that we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew little but i knew that if the aircraft bomb using force for us it targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brendan lee if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down and you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and
9:32 am
they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more musgrave's are still to be found houses of people who were killed during the battle to retake the city. maybe were buried has to leave but also many remain in the rubble or at least in mass graves each one has to. do hundreds of bodies in the screen there are two big such as to beaches but that's what we know is are struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because they are many of the catered to conduct examinations because they are in the mines around there it is clear from. you have seen on the ground that they are working to exhibit bodies need far more creating a technical assistance but until someone answers the pleas of ruckus citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh.
9:33 am
radio liberty media outlet funded by the u.s. government has placed an advert on facebook it was quickly noted that the outlet is prohibited from placing ads that target a u.s. audience had a more can explain this now it turns out that one news outlet has been forced to remove its political ads from facebook was the u.s. government's own radio free europe aka radio liberty here's an extract from their mission statement which of course you can find on their web site which ends in dot . a mission is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where free press is banned by the government or not fully established journalists provide what many people cannot get locally uncensored news responsible discussion an open debate perhaps they consider the united states to be one of those countries that doesn't have
9:34 am
a free press after all the ads were specifically targeted at americans now facebook says the ads were not political which is rather interesting as they were specifically related to recent controversies regarding trump and in nato. sixty one percent of the surveyed population in twelve countries view nato favorably it's actually illegal for federally funded news outlets under the umbrella of the broadcast board of governors to direct their content at an american audience the only exception is by special request and there was none in the case of radio liberty after new york times journalists raised a red flag the board of governors deleted the ads none of the b.b. g. now where should be distributing or promoting our content massacree in order to develop or grow domestic audiences but why would facebook allow ads about nato to begin with this is just after facebook has imposed strict rules regarding commercials with political content in the united states r.t.
9:35 am
materials frequently banned and that's even when it's not directed at an american audience. and issue ads on facebook and instagram in the u.s. must be clearly labeled including a paid for by disclosure from the advertiser at the top of the ad it turns out that the rules about what constitutes a political ad are pretty big as far as facebook is concerned any r.t. news related to the usa is a political advert meanwhile a commercial specifically talking about how everyone loves nato is not now russian scholar xanga laurie recently tried to promote an interview about his recently published compendium of coverage of donald trump from russian magazines and newspapers face book shut him down for his book want to prove my it for this book cost apparently what the russian press thinks of trump is dangerous information
9:36 am
there's a double standard if you want to break the rules to help defend freedom ok which is which is really not possible it's illogical they've constantly lived in this state of a false reality where. it's ok to propagandize and to blanket the rest of the world with a cia funded message but it's not ok for russia to finance or to partially even finance a great television network that's competitive with the b.b.c. for news and information why is that not ok all this talk about fake news and propaganda has put the us political establishment and tech giants like facebook in a pretty difficult spot basically they've been reduced to saying we can't promote it if we don't agree with it caleb oppen r.t. new york but facebook and the broadcasting board of governors are yet to comment on the situation we will update you on their response the soon as we get it students
9:37 am
at a university in england have removed a poem from a campus building describing the author as a racist and got the details for you after the break. join me every thursday on the elec so i'm unsure what i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics sports business i'm sure business i'll see you there. plus my comparison to the u.k. embrace it versus the u.s. policies worsens global trade so dollar trump goes to the global trading environment with the ability with leverage america's got a leverage in that economy and it can reshape the global economy be easy you can say went against the e.u. with no leverage they have a zero leverage against the e.u. therefore they've lost tragically against you and they're colonising marginalized
9:38 am
and isolated as a result of it they completely misstated our misunderstood there in the equation between the u.k. and the e.u. when it comes to business and trade. welcome back you off to the white house announced it's inviting russian president vladimir putin to washington the media is still trying to come to terms with trump's style of diplomacy breaks down most been dubbed the worst week for trump's foreign policy the u.s. president has upset everyone because she says fish don't doesn't do claim to see like this was. true for north one of the rules of diplomacy on his whistle stop
9:39 am
tour of europe went off piste and told the truth don't worry you threw in a fair few people used to it was an astonishing performance he managed to piss european allies and then in the interests of equality he citizens to diplomacy is the art of learning in someone's face but nicely years is a method not found in any text reg he softened up opponents and allies with a stream of clearly obvious as well finishing them all with a laser guided home truths about one of the latest new terrorism for us to take a truth from here's the e.u. of sticking washington with the bill of defending europe well nato members don't like hearing that said out loud you see they prefer diplomatically considered criticism which they can diplomatically ignore next the diplomatic headed to britain where trump had already accepted the nation in advance by suggesting that
9:40 am
the u.k. was in a spot of bragg's it in joost political turmoil how dare he politicians cried well the ones on dealing with all the turmoil that is then trump rooted in face to face in helsinki and a mainstream america exploded let me see those guys come on it's not the cold war anymore but one was called a traitor and. these are a disgrace for apparently costing doubt on the conclusion by the american intelligence services that russia meddled in the us elections a traitor and m.p.'s are a disgrace. he said the air was wrong. the day aloft and though he said he actually meant to say the exact opposite donald desperate backtracking was the first sign of genuine diplomacy he'd shown so much truth but did trump drop in the presence of he suggested the world's two largest
9:41 am
nuclear powers should try to get a long cold mr president do you know nothing. trumps diplomacy also drew attention during the recent korean nuclear crisis auntie's going underground spoke to a musician who recently played at a festival in the demilitarized zone between the two countries glenn martin former member of punk rock band the sex pistols. you played at the demilitarized zone yeah i'm a amongst a bunch of overpaid was others just going to go in our very best musician to try and for some solidarity through our anger and cousins i've come out of and i think the whole thing had become a bit of course the guy i don't know if there's himself you know despicable desperately his boss think he found himself painted into a corner not really understandable and i think anything that can be done to open
9:42 am
the door of a change you know k'naan about it was this before would signal be used to this thing before everything happened with a meeting with steve so instant yeah and then there was a whole bunch of paper involved things just trying to bring some awareness to what i wanted to go and find out for myself i've never been to a career before and that kind of quiet and so i didn't know the. merest so he said to become the next president coming from the tri interests of the day and said son in the d.m.z. zone i need to sign how we met him at the station and how he hoped that in a couple of years time if everything goes all right it will become so international star from what i was going to work out and support the line needs to go to work i must go on the boat and maybe one day i will even come for so long to come because i can't manage their fences with north korea and the border stop the funny guy. but then even out of that mad dog thank you. a poem by
9:43 am
a british writer who kept playing has been removed by students at manchester university in the north west of england they claim they all thought he's best known for writing the jungle book was racist the poem and if that was penned do nineteen or nine it was painted on a wall and i knew you were innovated building but that was quickly criticised by students who said they should have been consulted before hand they say kipling's thought. just to make the british empire presence in india and dehumanize people of color the student union apologized for the apparent oversight of verse from civil rights activists my angelo's still i rise has now replaced the poem. we asked people in london about the students initiative. this is it is a man of his time. and you've got to accept that that was his time today maybe not
9:44 am
the way you do it for so you just revealed really that much free speech on the window if you do that's a trick question i'm really into it and not kind of thing but i did read the report it is vandalism i think it's really bad in any any case and i don't agree with the facing i think there are other ways of protest from your point i think when we're looking back on history and judging people from the framework that they existed in it's a little bit different i think. everything in the tory period is significant in its own right. you know we can look at those and different views and attitudes now i think we can learn a little bit from that you know that it was a bad thing to do you know it's not right now but still you know it's people did do in the past i don't think that you should disregard the most people or that was because of an opinion they had the actually i think there been many great artists also in this museum been fired missile to mistake and fly problematic people in
9:45 am
their private clothes but that doesn't necessarily mean that there are countries that values but it also can mean that so it should be acknowledged and it should be they're open for discussion but the full of each of these essential kipling is not the only author whose work has been criticized recently here are few more. that western material achievement and progress made no dand on the rounded sleeve of china. it wants to forgive me for all of my friends without his ever saying anything they were simply a little something shameful between us like this brilliant open of the horse a symbol fight. there is a trait in the jewish character that does provoke animosity maybe it's
9:46 am

9:47 am
images into your head and of course the images that i was you were far more graphic than anything i could include in a in a television. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy going foundation let it be an arm. race is on often spearing dramatic development only closely and going to exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very chaotic time time to sit down and talk. you know world big partisan group a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for

9:50 am
a fundraiser for the political wing of the i ration frayne two years before the ceasefire then emerged the trump shook the hand of gerry adams he never gave him any money today though the good friday agreement which created the new parliament in belfast faces extreme strain regardless of u.k. prime minister tories amaze first visit to the north in the past twenty four hours there is the possibility of a post break that border between the republican the six counties worst of all for now is the fact that else does parliament stormont has long been shut down its representatives this month found guilty by judges of desert ng their responsibility is in fact in feigned representatives say their abstention ism is the failure to address so-called legacy issues and there have been plenty of legacy issues in evidence on the streets of derry this month a night of tension and disorder police warned that loyalist paramilitaries were planning to orchestrate and participate in serious disorder in east belfast but in
9:51 am
the following hours hundreds of emergency calls came in until around one o'clock this morning menu's burning cars to block roads in dundonald on the outskirts of belfast while a few miles from there a bus with passengers on board was hijacked and torched yes violence is back on both sides and on the. guest knows all about the pain and misery of that violence his father pat finucane a human rights lawyer who represented ira hunger striker and member of parliament while he sends before he was assassinated by paramilitaries linked to the party that made to raise him a u.k. prime minister his son solicitor and potential shin vein candidate for irish president johnson who can joins me now joe welcome to going underground before we get to the supreme court decision that we're all waiting for tell me about your father pat human rights lawyer tell you that i mean right at the beginning your family was forced out of their home when the trouble started before you aboard my
9:52 am
father was a working class catholic from west belfast the folds road he grew up with six brothers and one sister a very busy working class family and he was the first certainly the family possibly the st the area to go to university he qualify as a solicitor my mother. middle class protestant and his career really exploded as the trouble to exploded and he was a solicitor who ultimately was was very successful and talented and i think what he saw it needed to be telling is that i do and i think the ironic thing is that he probably post more of a threat to the pretty steep by doing what he did. anybody else who perhaps picked up on picked up a weapon and it was his success and challenging them and holding them to a kind that we know you know ultimately brought him to their attention the mark to mike for assassination and then your mom was wounded and your father shot dead by
9:53 am
militants in front in front of you. and those militants linked to the party currently keeping. the we were having dinner the twelfth fabry one thousand nine hundred nine and the front door was slammed hubbard and my father got up because he had. the noise and he was shot fourteen times and front of us all and my mother was shot once so obviously it was that was as horrific as i'm sure your viewers could imagine but from really from the outset we asking questions because up to that point my father had been threatened and directly by the police through his clients so for example people who were arrested and brought to interrogation centers were being told you may get yourself a new solicitor finnigan isn't going to be around for long he's nothing but a thug and a suit we are going to dig with out a couple of weeks before he was murdered there was a minister in the house of commons douglas hawg who stood up and made
9:54 am
a comment that there are a number of solicitors in northern ireland who are in julie sympathetic to the ira . very much we believe gave the green light for the assassins to then enter our house and tell my father so we ask him questions in the more questions that we asked from initial speeds the more questions that they had rudolph and once human rights organizations are supporters once people started looking into this they realized that it was a very very dirty and obviously ultimately not the army the police. other state agencies were involved this was something. really more than the killing of one but it was something that was it was a system that was in police that affected many many people for the stevens inquiries as and they establish that. your father was an innocent human rights lawyer and he was killed by british state collusion we have always
9:55 am
come in for a public inquiry what we have hot is a series of investigations and reviews and the subtlety of the warden is important because i'm inquiry is something that is public my family would have a right to be involved to questions to look at documents to you know really. be part of a process a police investigation doesn't allow us to do that stevens investigation is important we would say that it was a stepping stone to what should be a full inquiry we had no involvement in a police investigation the way that a family wouldn't and any police investigation. looked at over a million documents he concluded that there was collusion that aids and so this were involved in a plethora of crimes up to and including murder we never had any and so we were competent and with tony blair we met with tony blair i think on the least two occasions we were saying that what his government and i needed to do was to have
9:56 am
the open inquiry. and also to. to heal the division that the coalition has brought and still brings to that it needs to be dealt with properly my mother has always used the example that it is a very deep wound in our society and how you treat a deep wound is not by putting a plaster over the top of it because if you do that up it will ultimately fail or get infected burst and you need to get deep india willing to treat it properly and is what we are asking the british government to do in our case and the international context here is by twenty five twenty six. everyone knows the u.k. government was involved in the murder of your father and the us house of representatives resolution calling on the british government for a public inquiry presumably that gave you a degree of hope for justice we. had across party resolution and that all and dublin that was but that was backed by the then tape stuck to all the parties in
9:57 am
the south of art and called for call for an independent that was replicated in america and both houses of the house of representatives in the senate as well which at the time i think was signed by obama clinton i think it was unanimous in the send up we have really received presidential support three different. that has ever focused itself on our and has called for an inquiry the united nations other important individuals who have looked at this have all looked at our kids and come to the conclusion that there needs to be an inquiry to deal with this. the obstacle to the up is very much the british government not only have they denied to our family to justice but they have been a very clear obstacle in preventing truth coming now as i said to the president minority government leader may because of a policy linked to paramilitary part of the environment the trees there were
9:58 am
accused of the murder of you you get an apology from david cameron winter is amazin government here in downing street and then what does he say to you well he again it was the coalition government between the tories and the dams there had been a degree of a status quo with regard to our inquiry they commit the pardon said but we very much want to stay with us and we engage with them and we spoke with them they were as to what it would take for this to be a credible process of a calmer invited us to dine in straight with the promise that we would be very humbly with what we heard. instead of an inquiry want to see tourism is well no no we did meet with trees in may we met we met with david cameron under impoverishing who was there then the secretary of state for the north what they have a common. meeting very well he said that he was a young man this wasn't on his watch he wanted to get to the truth of the matter. but he then went on to say that the way to do that up would be
9:59 am
a barrister review and papers and i your viewers don't need to be lawyers to realise that you don't come to the truth by reading documents you know evidence needs to be challenge that needs to be transparent you need to compel witnesses to give evidence. of challenge in a fairly robust way especially when we're talking about state. that led to the murder of my father one of their own citizens an officer of the court so we were very dismayed to be a very. i think my mum effectively forced him out of his own room and died in straight sets it was before the meeting came to an abrupt end that we were in a room beside the cabinet office looking over the various great buildings of whitehall and when we were challenging him on the fact that this process wouldn't be kickable of getting to the truth and be in transpired and inspiring our confidence he seemed to get frustrated and he gestured he gestured to the window in the buildings around and said look there's people around here who would even want
10:00 am
me to do this they just won't let me give an inquiry and for me that was that was very telling it was foundations of. it yeah it's very much the tail wagging the dog and when the prime minister is certainly given the impression that he's not the one who ultimately calls the shots that i think is very disturbing when you're dealing with an issue where intelligency and seas were directing colors to killed those who the. desirables but the important part i think for me is that whilst once we weren't happy with the process that he was that he was putting forward he apologized for collusion he accepted that there was collusion and he did privately and then very much public in the warning was issued up and and part of the set up and i always find i always find it street and there is an apology at the outset of a process for me an apology should come if it's warranted at the end of
10:01 am
a process the way that he did with a degree of of style and dignity at the end of the book when the bloody sunday inquiry all to be reported and he dealt with in the way that it should have been dealt with but for us we were effectively told there is cohesion it is horrific and the government towards it is worse than anything that has come out of iraq and afghanistan. far as their own personnel are concerned we are very sorry for the but we're not going to tell you exactly what went on and i think that's a bizarre way to approach things albeit that though this. was prosecuted as it doesn't exist silva said that while m i five the police me they're all involved in the killing of the there was no overarching state conspiracy and presumably the supreme global say there's no overarching state conspiracy well the supreme court has a different question before and i don't think it's being invited to make that conclusion i would haue of with regards to silva's conclusion i would i would respectfully
10:02 am
tell him stop i don't see how. the police the army the intelligence service can do what they did all. the people that we knew were involved were subsequently promoted decorated effectively congratulated by the state for the job well done this is not something that you can do with the resources. be in crude there are dead bodies on the street and they are piling up over a series of years from the eighty's in the ninety's ministers with any sort of weapon responsibility should be setting up and asking questions on last they are very much aware that the system is doing exactly what the system was designed to do which is direct killers proxy killers on behalf of the british government to kill people who the intelligence services do not want to fight anymore we have seen that collusion is blind at a fact that my family it's affected products and it's affected conflicts i have no doubt that there were personnel within the iranian who were it's of the state who
10:03 am
were directed to kill on behalf of the british government could include pretty soldiers that could include police man as long as the intelligence was more worthy than a life then it was a very simple decision that was me and so i would struggle to find it doesn't work its way up and department into a pit. political sphere we already have douglas hall copy me it has statement and one of the reviews previous to you to silver by former canadian supreme court jurist peter corry he saw papers that were marked for a couple that attention by. which i think needs to be challenge which needs to be robustly heard in a public forum as doubt this went all the way to the very top. thank you after the break figure songwriter and original effects best old glenn plays us out with a track from his new album good to go and tourism a again on says jeremy cool been by implying he is now. at the last pm queues of
10:04 am
all british m.p.'s go on holiday all this and more coming up about to have going underground. it's hard to imagine. the war a nazi don't it was still active rich in the nineteen seventies criminal had as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery ash with a german company developed from there to mind a drug that was promoted as completely safe even during pregnancy. it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby anything. you know she said she's just. so they don't mind victims have to this day received no compensation they never apologized for the suffering that. not only want the money i want the revenge. independence
10:05 am
means that you're not going to take instruction from any of them and we know that in the situation of syria. the mandate that was given to us is bro it's not one to put aside to the. broader. i think on identifying investigating. on sending the most serious. for a man or sitting in a car when the feds get shot in the head. for different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row there's no way he could have done it there's no possible way because bullets do not shoot around a corner.
10:06 am
welcome back british politics is in virtual meltdown as brecht said threatens the premiership of minority u.k. government needed to raise the may two of some of her latest resigned ministers spoke up at prime minister's questions before the foreign secretary gave his resignation speech first was may's former breakfast secretary david davis he asked about making public work carried out in his department on alleged the e.u. trade deal double standards as the prime minister's aware that the problem fixed in the european union carried out a study of all of the previous creature a deal's a european union that done in order to create a free trade deal a drug free trade deal which was based solely on european precedent the department was until i left at least was carrying out a legal text creating a legal text of such a draft treaty as
10:07 am
a as one fallback option in the event of it in the current negotiation would she agree to publish that text when it's complete tourism a would commit to no such undertaking to make it public then another m.b. was resigned from her administration in the past few days about contingency plans to threaten the e.u. with a no deal breaks it. tomorrow on the who friends please give instructions that every communication related to no deal serves to poster on negotiating position and right by reinforcing the credibility of the feasibility of those contingency plans yes said the pm but the european union needs to be in no doubt that we are making those preparations and ensuring that should be the outcome will be on the path resignations threats of no confidence threats against the e.u. he has jeremy corbyn who has arguably been welcoming blairite resignations on his own bed just you know leads in opinion polls to replace theresa may with a majority labor government after two years negotiating with themselves they then
10:08 am
wanted to shut down parliament five days. they've even given up on negotiating with each other it isn't the case that the government is failing to negotiate breaks it . failing to meet the needs of the country because they are too busy far too busy fighting each other to raise it may replied by implying that corbin was an anti semite. when i was negotiating our future security relationship with europe he was really can see a saying the definition of anti centrist but attempts to tell the leader of western europe's largest socialist movement with anti semitism appear not to be succeeding even mainstream media appears to suggest that the conservatives lack of governance suggest a kind of an icky in the u.k. well one man who's arguably well placed to judge is our next guest matlock is not original member of the sex pistols and his new solo album good to go is out next
10:09 am
month he joins me now len welcome back to going underground so on this day in one hundred seventy six the world woke up to. the aftermath of anarchy in the u.k. being premiered in manchester it was heat it was but. we won it why has it become such an important record so many years later just because it was a sense of. on things i think is it was jolly good actually i think it's the looks of things that all came for gov but point and so on possibly but a song i miss from the cold the people who still reverberates around the world to die but this many decades later. best me musta done something right ok the production on our album as compared to your new album so so different why does the new album good to go sound. a bit buoy nine hundred fifty three zero i'm going to sound a bit probably not a seventy three but is an element of. the spiders from mars album are they going to
10:10 am
take the lion the brain by the sort of. powers everything with the case that it's all over but if you get a guitarist to imitate that i did it oh you did that but i do know that he looks like he's like yeah but i was slick plays overlayed but a part is it's weirdly because i don't play the simple bit and kind of come on lads this kind of thing but i mean. punk presumably was a reaction not only politically against that kind of glam rock you know it was able to read a star no it wasn't it was a it was it might be a reaction against some of the more of a blog. post a program con about and say i have not traveled and that well probably hopefully no one remembers actually does some of it on reflection be blitzing is quite good you know so to climb rocks off the spiders from. a. new little girl's on the ground again with the sound on this album is more room and it's sort of some
10:11 am
elements of pro group you know it's been my not get out of it no actually general i think it's coming to a bit of a little bit about the heart of my life and i find this punk music and it's a different thing out the north and might and i've noticed because i've been doing most of the two stitch i was around the world was at the. iconic can opener by and to give them on a. over the bar and so the songs could breathe a little bit more might swing them find some reply most of the drum and the album. if they'd be out for their own any day than it's common to lend it a bit more of a swing it's more of a symbolic on a sound i'm a on a skiffle and i leave rockabilly and stuff always i've done he suggested and i was like in on the no union movement before the full kind of kind of govern record album come out. hopefully it's hoped for more than the sum of the parts of the paper involved but you have been playing the souls of the t.c. you need. for
10:12 am
a new deal for work is that if they're good at but not done pretty well and from thank you very much you come from a trade union but i did my dad was in front of the internal workers in it and always remember when i was a lad and white sixtieth he come on for me and he would have it was a bit annoyed us and he said hold a book for both of the events of me shops to honest i will get out much i'm one of our thirty but not going to trouble about my flight i was redundant in my life before the shop steward for that kind of struck the cold with me of the people trying to stand up for their rights even though the eye is a way somebody is trying to pull the rug from underneath you for. your father i know maybe not jewish but i mean you just generally. because you also when you were at school been labeled lud yeah far more than other tours. because at that particular concert and way play the mainstream media was saying there's
10:13 am
a publicist to give in to it but you're quite rare for an activist gatherings and they said it was a complete failure i'll say i was rubbish nothing else but i want to say i lived on my couch as the new revenue god many people then understood it in terms of paper tickets and i think by them sign that paper actually went out and bought more tickets in the first time they've ever done anything like that and i thought it was kind of quite a cool thing to be involved in so there's a lot of right wing person this country and they particularly because obviously lots of the blairites went is it because nobody's elysium because he's. not in their interest. i felt comfortable with his musician price and travel around the vested interests to come across a. company come acquire power more than if you want to learn what i did but obviously when it comes to visit interests the korean war which killed maybe a fifth of the entire country britain and career in maybe twenty percent of the
10:14 am
temple relation. no one can say that you were playing for any vested interests you played at the demilitarized yeah i'm among a bunch of uptight was obvious just going to govern our very best musician to transfer some solidarity through our anger and cousins are evidence i cannot lend and i think the whole thing had become a bit of a cork gonna nope of himself you know despicable with his daughter thing he found himself painted into a corner not really understanding why nothing anything that could be done to open the door a change you know k'naan about how it was this before would signal be used as i think before everything happened with the media as you've sold instantly. and there was a whole bunch of paper involved. just trying to bring some awareness to it i want to find out for myself i've never been to korea before qana quite so i didn't know
10:15 am
the. merest soul who's hoping to become the next president to come up on the try interns to visit them to zed's on the d.m.z. zone i need to sign how i met him at the site and how he hoped that in a couple of years time if everything goes all right it will become international stars from what i was going to work out the life means to go to work the most on the bone in my be one die it will even come for so long to come because i can't imagine that there france's renaud for the pota stopped. but the need now to thank you before we go again is going to pass out with a song from his new album good to go will be back on monday to go on the ground in afghanistan where to raise amaze just sent four hundred forty troops to support nato's longest war till then keep in touch via social media we'll see you on monday fifty seven years to the day of the founding of the sandinista movement in nicaragua which would defeat cia backed contra death squads in the one nine hundred

10:21 am
very warm welcome you're watching r.t. international with me. after a recent spike in violence on the gaza border militant group hamas says it's agreed to a cease fire with israel violence escalated after an israeli soldier was killed in a series of air strikes on hamas positions there have been fears of all out confrontation as artie's paula samir explains there is an easy calm that has descended along the israel gaza border that ceasefire went into effect at midnight and we have heard from the israeli army that civilians who live along the israel gaza border can return to normal routine we're hearing the same message from hamas folks person who says that they have agreed to return to the era of calm between israel and the palestinian factions it follows a night of heavy air strikes conducted by the israeli air force over gaza they say
10:22 am
they hit some sixty targets while at the same time three projectiles were fired at israel by palestinian militants. an israeli combat soldier was killed by a palestinian sniper and a friday deadline given by israel to harass in which it said that all awesome kites that were flown into israel had to cease came and went with those kites israel says that its actions were merely retaliate and it holds hamas responsible the i.d.f. used today's it's like the whole store activity is treated by hamas throughout the last month with great severity hamas chose to the security situation and move the consequences for its actions last night's strikes were the worst we've seen since the two thousand and fourteen will between israel and hamas in that war more than two thousand palestinians were killed and seventy three israelis now there was an israeli airstrike a heavy israeli airstrike earlier in the week we are hearing from the israeli prime

girls a base journalist ten current reports from the border. nearly one hundred fifty meters away from carney the fans and as you see the palestinian youths protesters are describing and expressing expressing their rage by climbing this fans. i have to say that this is one of the hardest days we have been covering. the protests on weekly basis for more than five months we saw explosions on both sides scores were injured it's very dangerous and this was one of the toughest days we have ever witnessed by live ammunition here guys airstrikes and a lot in a lot of more weapons the israelis have been using against the palestinians
10:25 am
political commentator and they are in on the former director of a palestinian civil rights organization most in up of ramadan shut their views on the conflict. hundreds of palestinians if you accumulate the numbers have either died or been injured at the demonstrations but this is not happened because israel has used force. to the contrary israel only reacted and israel tried to keep the entire border quiet if he's not the in its interest to try and repel. none but of but the scene and war sure did differ on that either sort of does without any dangers. from them to those are you disorders they are just getting the slogans and the voices and asking the international community it over to brush up those are at the end that she'd get to feed them of movement and
10:26 am
commodities to the the scene at the live as normal people for the new human being and live in the. and to learn. it's been a year since the iraqi city of mosul was liberated from islamic state the city had been the terror group steve facto capital of the country for nearly three years i t's raptly agency visited the city. i think it will be unfair to say that nothing has changed but what we what we call for is that the change should happen more quickly or we see that's the level of destruction that happened years ago is still very visible if an infrastructure hasn't been repaired yet most people haven't been reopened yet there's a lack of water and there's a lack of electricity. going back and potentially finding their bodies in your house in your street i think that
10:27 am
since george appears very devastating because once again you're confronted to it's all the horrible things that happened in mosul you know yes there are two bodies still down there and there are four more bodies in that house behind us there's still inside the stench coming from them is very strong your children are getting sick because of this. sit in there were six of us my daughter was killed we lived in the house after the airstrikes i just couldn't live there anymore. i don't know them. but they said we're not going to treat her our priority is the fight is we can give her an injection so she dies immediately better for her to die at home.
10:28 am
the horror of war can also be seen in the syrian city of raka the bodies of more than one thousand two hundred civilians the majority of them women and. children have been discovered in three mass graves there is claims they were killed when the u.s. led coalition bombing to the area because dawn of has the details tobar will mark exactly one year since i saw defeat in the caliphate self-proclaimed capital rocker and months after the u.s. coalition's victory restored or freed of torment the syrian city is still not these are the latest pictures from one of three recently discovered mars graves these birrell sites contain more than a thousand bodies. and there are three hundred to four hundred bodies in this mass
10:29 am
grave three to four catacombs are completely full of did bodies grief and despair still has the syrian city reeling as relatives time and time again have to identify their loved ones. excluded the body of only one of my sisters the other four remain missing i don't know where. they were buried by my uncle now we're looking for the uncle who called to find them but the majority of the bodies are civilians mostly women and children our team works twenty four hours a day whether a civilian or a fighter we give the body a number well this number is over a thousand now and that's just to the three recently discovered mass graves it's a race against time and they're ready to earn their more time passes the harder it is to identify the bodies as they rot in the ground nameless. we don't have any
10:30 am
modern tools we just rely on basic information families help us identify the civilians by telling us what the person was wearing or by describing a ring or a watch your tattoo we're done to fire a lot of bodies from hair because it does not disintegrate and mass graves of raka highlight not only ice souls monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's dinner. in its responsibility for the city's tragedy because it has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty thousand rounds and several thousand strikes it launched into rock a city the blustery didn't or as a contradicted by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures nine months on it's hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these were taking only
10:31 am
a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s. led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble there was that an effect in washington that we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew that of that i knew that if the aircraft bomb using phosphorus targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brendan lee if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down on you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed
10:32 am
bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more musgrave's are still to be found houses of people who were killed your. city. maybe were buried asked to leave but also many remain in the rubble or at least in mass graves each one has to be dozens. to hundreds of bodies of this group you are too big such as to beaches but that's what we know who authorities are struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because there are many of the created to conduct examinations because they are the mines around there it is clear from what we have seen on the ground that they are working to exhibit bodies they need far more creating a technical assistance but until someone answers the pleas of ruckus citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh. radio liberty and media outlet funded by the us government has placed an ad first
10:33 am
on facebook it was quickly noted that the outlet is prohibited from placing ads that target a u.s. audience care that more pain explains. now it turns out that one news outlet has been forced to remove its political ads from facebook was the u.s. government's own radio free europe aka radio liberty here's an extract from their mission statement which of course you can find on their web site which ends in dot gov. a mission is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where free press is banned by the government or not fully established journalists provide what many people cannot get locally on since it's news responsible discussion an open debate perhaps they consider the united states to be one of those countries that doesn't have a free press after all the ads were specifically targeted at americans now facebook
10:34 am
says the ads were not political which is rather interesting as they were specifically related to recent controversies regarding trump and to nato. sixty one percent of the surveyed population in twelve countries view nato favorably it's actually illegal for federally funded news outlets under the umbrella of the broadcast board of governors to direct their content at an american audience the only exception is by special request and there was none in the case of radio liberty after new york times journalists raised a red flag the board of governors deleted the ads none of the b.b. g. now where should be distributing or promoting our content and massacree in order to develop or grow domestic audiences but why would facebook allow ads about nato to begin with this is just after facebook has imposed strict rules regarding commercials with political content in the united states r.t. materials frequently banned and that's even when it's not directed at an american
10:35 am
audience. and issue ads on facebook and instagram in the u.s. must be clearly labeled including a paid for by disclosure from the advertiser at the top of the ad it turns out that the rules about what constitutes a political ad are pretty big as far as facebook is concerned any r.t. news related to the usa is a political advert meanwhile a commercial specifically talking about how everyone loves nato is not now russian scholar xango laurie recently tried to promote an interview about his recently published compendium of coverage of donald trump from russian magazines and newspapers face book shut him down for his book want to prove my for the sport cost apparently what the russian press thinks of trump is dangerous information there's a double standard if you want to break the rules to help defend freedom ok
10:36 am
which is which is really not possible it's illogical they've constantly lived in this state of a false reality where. it's ok to propagandize and to blanket the rest of the world with a cia funded message but it's not ok for russia to finance or to partially even finance a great television network that's competitive with the b.b.c. for news and information why is that not ok all this talk about fake news and propaganda has put the us political establishment and tech giants like facebook in a pretty difficult spot basically they've been reduced to saying we can't promote it if we don't agree with it caleb oppen r.t. new york both facebook and the board costing board of governors are yet to comment on the situation and we will update you on the responses soon as we get it. students at a university in england remove a poem from
10:37 am
a campus building describing all the regard to playing as a racist but give you the details after this break. you know world of big partisan lot and conspiracies it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy for and let it be an arms race is often spearing dramatic developments only really i'm going to
10:38 am
resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. welcome back after the white house announced is inviting president putin to washington the media is still trying to come to terms with donald trump style of diplomacy breaks down most been dubbed the worst week for trump's foreign policy. the u.s. president has upset everyone because she says risk fish don't do claim to sea life this was a. term from lord one of the rules of diplomacy on his whistle stop tour of europe
10:39 am
went off piste and told the truth don't worry you threw in a few you tube it was an astonishing performance he managed to piss european allies and then in the interests of equality he desired citizens to diplomacy is the ruling in someone's face but nicely uses a method not found in any text reg he sobered up opponents and allies with a stream of clearly. provoke finishing the most with a laser going did truth that last one that's the latest name terrorism for us to take a truth from here's the e.u.'s sticking washington with the bill of defending europe well nato members didn't like hearing that said out loud you see they prefer diplomatically considered criticism which they can diplomatically ignore next the diplomatic headed to britain where trumpeted already did the nation in advance by
10:40 am
suggesting that the u.k. was in a spot of bragg's it in joost political turmoil dad he politicians well the ones on dealing with all the turmoil but is there and trump wanted face to face in helsinki and a mainstream america exploded literally there guys come on it's not a cold war anymore no one was called a traitor and he's a disgrace for a funny cause to doubt on the conclusion by the american intelligence services that russia meddled in the us elections. and in pisa a disgrace. he said the air was wrong. the day almost. he said he actually meant to say the exact opposite donald's desperate backtracking was the first sign of genuine diplomacy he showed so much truth bomb did trumpet drop in the presence of it in he said yes of the world's two
10:41 am
largest nuclear powers should try to get along dear god mr president do you know nothing. trumps diplomacy also drew attention during the recent korean nuclear crisis artie's going underground spoke to a musician who recently played at a festival in the demilitarized zone between the two koreas glowed matlock former member of punk rock band the sex pistols. he played at the demilitarised yeah upon amongst a bunch of uptight was over just going to go in our very worst musician to try and for some solidarity through my cousins out of it and so can i lend a hand i think the whole thing had become a bit of course they're gonna know if there's himself you know despicable desperately his boss think he found himself painted into a corner not really understandable and i think anything that can be done to open the door
10:42 am
a chink you know k'naan about how it was this before would signal be used to this thing before everything happened with for me the worst of so yeah and there's a whole bunch of paper involved that things just trying to bring some awareness to what i want to go and find out for myself i've never been to korea before on the planet quite so i can know the. merest shoulders for what it's become the next president they come up on the trying interests of the day in the sun in the d.m.z. zone i need to sign how i met him at the station and how he hoped that in a couple of years time if everything goes all right it will become so international stocks and we got something to work out nice a bit alive nice to go to work the most on the boat and maybe one day it will even come for so long to come because i can't manage their finances or know of career in the boulder stopped running guy. but then even out of that mad dog thank you.
10:43 am
a poem by a british writer revealed kipling has been removed by students at manchester university in the north west of england they claim the officer who is best known for writing the jungle book was racist the poem if that was penned in nine hundred ninety nine was displayed in a newly renovated campus building but was quickly criticised by students who said they should have been consulted before hand they say kipling's thought too late just to make the british empire as presidents in india and dehumanize people of color the student union apologized for the apparent oversight of verse from civil rights activists my angelo's still i rise has now replaced the podium. well as people in london about the students' initiative. this is it is a man of his time. and you've got to accept that that was his time today maybe not the way you do it the first two just her story with
10:44 am
a touch of free speech on the window if you do ask us a trick question i'm really into it and not kind of thing but i did read the deported bundle i said nothing that's really bad to me any occasion i don't agree with defacing i think there are other ways of protesting your point i think when we're looking back on history and judging people from the framework that they existed in it's a little bit different i think. everything in the tory period is significant in its own right. we can look at those in different views and attitudes now i think we can learn a little bit from that you know that it was a bad thing to do you know it's not right now but still you know it's people did do in the past i don't think that we should disregard them as people or that works because of the pain they have the actually i think there been many great artists also in this museum been quite nice such a mistake and fly from the must take people in their private clothes but that
10:45 am
doesn't necessarily mean that there are one of these values but it also can mean that so it should be acknowledged and it should be there open for discussion but the thought of that it shouldn't be censored and tripling is not the only author whose work has been criticised recently here are a few more. that western material achievement and progress made no gent on their own it's leader of china. wants to forgive me for all of my friends without his ever saying anything they were simply a little something shameful between us like this brilliant open of the horse a symbol fight. there is a trait in the jewish character that does provoke animosity maybe it's a kind of lack of generosity towards non jews hitler didn't just pick on them for
10:46 am
no reason. to lessen the jew in the jews to your empire and you yourselves and jude the jew and the big jew has rotted every nation is one day too. thanks for joining us on r.t. international best saturday we're going to be back in about thirty minutes with all the latest headlines with events. seventy four design submissions. seven thousand islands. to the judges. and eight hundred sixty nonstop days of. the russian w.b. . and a russian stuff. show you how and why the crimea bridge was built to.
10:47 am
witness the construction willing you need to transport the terrain that will help them out of crimea. most of those you know what google for more familiar quite a bit by trill. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president. or somehow want to press. it to the right to be press this is what about forty three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. question. they gave us national camera. roughly once they showed some mostly for them.
10:48 am
to videos and some of them with the broken string abs. going down more on string i don't roughly don't t.v. . hello i'm most does or this is the kaiser of course of the show that there is to go deeper. to max we're back in new york city and we're going to talk about the trade war because of course right across from us used to be the world trade center it is the place where all trade goes through and it's the center of the u.s. global financial empire but china says bully united states started a trade war the united states has started a trade war and china will defend itself the chinese vice minister of commerce
10:49 am
weighing shewan said last week urging the united states to take the gun of terrorists away to smooth the way for talks quote the measures taken are against the interests of china they're against the interests of the united states businesses consumers workers and farmers they are hampering global economic growth they are just a trade bully. you know you've got these global trade organizations that are gamed by china and the u.s. gets a short on the stick so it's up as tearing up the playing board and saying we'll start all over from scratch and that's the right thing to do we're actually have some analysis on that and by the way i just want you to say that if you want to find analysis that confirms what the chinese vice minister of commerce said you could tune into c.n.n. b.b.c. or m s n b c or fox or c.n.n. and there because they're all unanimous that this is a disaster but i'm going to look at some alternative headlines about the other side of this one from the voter and one from wolf richter who says well maybe this is
10:50 am
leveling the playing field and you've got to protect your own economy at home because for example you know the something like twenty six million cars were sold in china twenty five million of them were made in the country because of twenty five percent. import taxes on cars made overseas so you know if you want to protect your own industrial industry at home you've got to have these but many manufacturing communities feel like they're in a long running trade war one in which for decades america never fired a shot on their behalf and he's talking about a new republic article titled the inevitable death of global trade as we know it because as dan collins has said for many areas on the keiser report that we've had a trade war and the trade in the united states is lost wages in us go down because of the financialization of the economy which rewards bankers and financier's at the expense of workers and they again i'll say they use global trade organizations and
10:51 am
trade institutions to game for themselves in the case of china at the expense of the u.s. so now the u.s. is simply saying that wait a minute let's let's increase wages and let's bring jobs back to the u.s. and china squealing of course but that's the way it goes squealing because it's that old adage if you know the bank a thousand dollars you're in trouble if you go the bank ten million dollars they're in trouble and this has proven to be the case is that the u.s. imports so much more than it exports especially with china so china was trying to basically impose equal tariffs on the two hundred billion that trump imposed recently the most recent tariffs and they couldn't this biggest export from the u.s. to china is garbage literally garbage you know we're exporting tanker you know china would send over tankers and ships full of stuff and then the u.s.
10:52 am
would put all their garbage on of the ships and send them back to china and china would recycle the garbage the cardboard design there's a woman there who's become the billionaire just recycling american cardboard ok but now they realize that there's not enough stuff that we export to penalize so they have to come to the table and do a deal so back to this article about the voters and why the vote. there's always going to vote to dismantle the system it's something we've talked about with the us election and also with breaks that if they can kick you in the teeth they will because a common fear expressed by critics of trade policy is that over time has recklessness risks the end of the global trading system a framework of rules put in place after world war two that they claim have brought about stability and security retaliatory tariffs piled upon tariffs will eventually make those rules irrelevant and at that point the entire system would collapse but that system was inherently unstable as it boosted corporate profits at the expense of millions of workers trump or no trump a backlash was inevitable and if the global trading system is to survive its gross
10:53 am
imbalances must be corrected right those folks who support those protest member in geneva against the g seven against the g eight against all these global confound against builder berg all those protesters should be supporting trump because trump is essentially doing what they want now i don't i don't think that because i don't think it's an individual and i know this is something you and i have always discussed you think leaders are you know somebody that lead people but i think the it's trump is just a symptom of this trade system that has been in place for forty fifty years well seventy years since the end of world war two the same with brakes it doesn't matter if you you max keiser me stacey herbert thinks it's insane because we live in cities and we travel to new york city london and paris and we see all the great benefits of it it doesn't matter because we live in democracies and these people are going to vote the ones that got left out and as this article points out like they kept on being told eventually don't worry just take these losses of jobs will
10:54 am
retrain you things will get better eventually you know all the jobs are sent overseas will be replaced by higher value jobs but everybody now works at mcdonald's or some shopping center that's now being kicked out of business by amazon as i said over a decade. since world war two they trade policies and organizations put in place had a creeping financialization that disenfranchise the worker who then voted for trump who is then doing what he was elected to do as the leader of this group of people who are disenfranchised including those who are protesting the g. seven occupy wall street has a champion in trump so it just breaks it if their dismantling the system that they've got destroyed by i know you don't like it but i think like if these people want a kick in the teeth of the global order as it was because they lost by whatever the global order was whatever the system was whatever the paradigm was they were losing
10:55 am
and it was bound if you gave them a vote if you gave these people a right to vote and change that system they were going to. actually you only gave them a vote to kind of tinker around the edges and if you but you gave them a vote to take it all down by voting for somebody like trump or voting for breaks that they would take it all see how it plays out these two very distinct countries the united states and britain in the us the deposition are the disposition of the ruling elite will have one effect under trump and the rise in wages and in the u.k. getting rid of david cameron and breaks it will see how that plays up but they are going to have two very distinct outcomes just as the democrats in america refuse to look at the role that hillary and their own policies play in the loss of the us election both parties i think will. if they fail to confront this next paragraph i'm going to read they will always be kicked in the teeth by the voter the united
10:56 am
states lost five million manufacturing jobs from two thousand to two thousand and fourteen while the u.s. trade deficit peaked at nearly six percent of gross domestic product economists like david auteur calls this the china shock because it incurred on a similar timeline as the country's two thousand and one entry into the world trade organization the bow. if cheap chinese goods had a real human cost here at home you can choose to try to ignore the real human cost how did the democrats the and the republicans the two parties that run this country they're united in this policy they have a huge almost violent you know social divisions between the two parties but they're united on these trade policies on nato and. on on all the trade deals. there's no difference not just not a sliver of difference between what the democrats and republicans want so the real you know there are real consequences and they can choose to ignore it or not and
10:57 am
they'll keep on getting a trump but there's nothing wrong with that sort of saying i mean that the people put a populist an office like they put thomas jefferson in office they put george washington in office they put abraham lincoln in office they put john f. kennedy in office they put donald trump in office that's the lots of voters do he's doing what the voters want and the country's better for the mean that's the way the american system works and the unification of like the likes of bill kristol and hillary clinton united against the voter right now they're focusing it all on the individual that is trump but really what they're united against is the voter who is upset about these trade policies and the fact that they their livelihoods have been destroyed so you know the pundits who are wrong their livelihoods are destroyed and all the mainstream media the fake news in the america hopefully will get blown out of the water and bring in some real news bring in some competition there is another holy sort of entity here in new york city and that is the stock market all the pundits and all the political elite will agree that the stock markets are america
10:58 am
that is the heart and soul of america and this is what we imposed around the world and that speaks a different truth to what they are speaking about this trade war stock markets see the u.s. winning the trade war defying corporate lobby and media propaganda since the trying to impose these tariffs and keep some imposing them and all the pundits on television are united against him doing this. they're saying he's saying that this is corporate america's propaganda machine they're getting a lot of air time on all the networks to say this is gravy you know they keep on having you know manufacturers on television c.e.o.'s and saying this is a horrible thing and trump is destroying jobs and blah blah blah but chief economist at moody's capital markets research john ski well he looked at the market . consequences since trump imposed these tariffs and what he found is that there actually hasn't been that much impact in u.s. markets in fact they're a little bit up but if you look at china's shanghai composite six point eight
10:59 am
percent since june fourteenth when you first impose tariffs fourteen point two percent year to date korea's kospi index is down five point seven percent since june fourteenth germany's dax down four point seven and japan's nikkei and you know those are the huge surplus nations the markets are saying they're going to lose not the u.s. so trump is a frickin genius and everything he said would happen is happening and the professional pundit classes completely wrong and thus thank god hillary was kept out of office again moody's says in their assessment of what this means the fact that the stock markets and the surplus nations overseas have crashed and the u.s. has not they they sum it up as the reasons that moody's cited as being behind the market's moves up in the us down in big trade surplus countries are the obvious ones that the markets have been seeing from day one but that the us media are totally and willfully blind to the u.s. as less dependent on exports than these countries in terms of overall business
11:00 am
activity the u.s. has a huge trade deficit with these countries and the us imports far more from them than exports to them and any retaliation by those countries would by definition hit those countries far harder than the u.s. the u.s. economy is currently strong and now well outperforms other major economies so you know this is why one must question more because as well for her points out he's watching all the news there are unanimous they all agree that trump is his trade policies and his tariffs are a disaster ok last year for her let's write the comparison to the versus the u.s. policies versus global trade so donald trump goes to the global trading environment with the ability to leverage america's got a leverage in that economy and it can reshape the global economy. they went against the e.u. with no leverage they have a zero leverage against the e.u. therefore they've lost tragically against you and their dollars being marginalized
11:01 am
and isolated as a result of it they completely misstated our misunderstood there at the equation between the u.k. and the e.u. when it comes to business and trade yes but i do not believe the elite wanted the brics that it's the voter that one of the brics and that is what is united in these two kinds of arrows irish voter is not as financially literate as the average american voter because america doesn't answer the real country and britain is as a vassal state of the monarchy it's a very different economy very different population very different country well we got to take a break and when we come back a lot more coming your way. it's hard to imagine decades after the war a nazi don't it was still active. in the nineteen seventies croteau had as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery. the german company developed for the
11:02 am
demise of drugs it was promoted as completely safe even during pregnancy. it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby anything. she said is just. minutes a little mind victims i have to this day received no compensation and never apologized for the suffering. not only want the money i want the revenge. to prepare the program i had to look at a lot of material listened to a lot of material and also read a lot of material that the move was appalling. and not only that when you get these images into your head and of course the images that i was you know formal grammar. and then the thing i could include enough in a television program. for manners
11:03 am
sitting in a car when the phipps gets shot in the head. all four different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row there's no way you could have done it there's no possible way because the list did not shoot around a corner. seventy four design submissions says. seven thousand islands. to join judges. and eight hundred sixty nonstop days of. a russian w.b. a champion of it. and a russian mob stuff. show you how and why the crimean bridge was built. witnessed the construction moving you need to transpose doughtery that will help
11:04 am
them out of crimea. most of those you know what google more familiar with it a bit but it's clear. welcome back to the kaiser report i'm max keyser time out to go to galatea been artsy of bank core value welcome thank you for having me nice to see you all right now i just had a vent at bretton woods and it sounds very exciting but first we want to get into this late breaking news of bank or but of course there was a hack so tell us a little bit about the hack what was stolen and what's going on yes it's been an
11:05 am
eventful week for bank or and for the industry at large as most weeks seem to be basically a criminal a thief a hacker was able to access one of the wallets bank or and to withdraw from there a significant amount of cryptocurrency the initial amount was somewhere around twenty three and a half million dollars worth of tokens and then shortly there after we were able to retrieve about ten million dollars worth of the b. and t. the bank or network token bringing the total to about thirteen million dollars worth of crypto mostly these were ether tokens a few other tokens as well as the b. and t. which we were able to retrieve now i saw you put out a message to the community that you're trying to get together put together some kind of community effort to attack this type of behavior i saw that on my twitter
11:06 am
stream can you speak about that a little bit yeah absolutely basically the idea is that one project's loss is everyone's loss in this space of course we battle p.r. in terms of people's confidence in crypto and confidence in the space and of course we battle the security together as the. thieves and criminals advance with their technology as the industry advances with our technology and so the idea really is that we're stronger together that there what we learn from this. and says that there is so much chaos that happens after an incident like this where if all of the parties were better coordinated if there was if you will a hotline if we could share information more transparently if we could be quicker about getting flagged accounts or floodwall it's into the to the exchanges so that they could track those as well we would all be much better off i think that everyone together doesn't want to see criminals with this whole industry
11:07 am
though it goes against the idea of cooperating in a lot of ways going all the back to the big point foundation what was very difficult to sustain because of the infighting that went on and this idea of individual sovereignty is rife throughout the entire industry and it's really. anarchy the idea of anarchy is huge in this industry and it's kind of everyone's on their own so totally to goes against this idea of trying to put together anything of a cooperative nature because there's a huge fear of any. kind of you know organized centralized group at all so it's how do you fight that under undertow that tenant within the sinister a that any organization a organization attempt is bad so this is one of those beautifully complex issues and i think that anyone who thinks. being alone is better will quickly discover that in order to get where we're going in this industry we're going to have to
11:08 am
stick together this doesn't mean this is sara lee centralized control and this is one of the interesting parts you don't have to be either centralized or decentralized you don't have to be either black or white you don't have to be either on your own or together we can develop third ways we can develop better models for how we coordinate how we collaborate and yet maintain both individual and organizational sovereignty it's not actually that hard to do we just need to build a framework and follow that ok so you mentioned centralizers d.c. . a bank or hackers triggered a debate about decentralization charlie lee over light going quote an exchange is not decentralize if it can lose customer funds or if it can freeze customer funds bank or does both so your response we just don't believe that this is true an exchange and a network is decentralized on a number of various parameters so for example do users own their own wallets and do
11:09 am
users maintain custody over their funds at all time in the bank or liquidity network absolutely yes even in a situation like a breach that we experienced last week users were able to access their funds at any time even during the breach withdraw their funds move their funds move to different wallets and so decentralization is something that you look at on a spectrum and on many many different parameters having some kind of centralized design mechanism does not make a network centralized especially when these mechanisms are transparent are openly discussed are very clearly explained how and if they will be used i think that we can do a better job as an industry looking at what are the best practices for these kinds of centralized emergency mechanisms but just as you know the u.s. or other democracies can call on unique parameters in times of extenuating circumstances in order to affect decision making in
11:10 am
a way that might avoid collateral damage or further damage to the society so can networks and and token networks have mechanisms which allow the designers that are the most interested in the well being of the network to make quick decisions in a moment of need of course you need great governance around that you need great transparency and that's in fact why we're out and talking to the community as much as we can about both what happened and what we intend to do about. in the future so any time an exchange gets hacked it brings it back memories of mt gox which is probably in the industry's worst nightmare period and in response to that a lot of decentralized exchanges were talked about and now some are coming online so in the case of bank or when you talk about a liquidity network this is a kind of a hybrid is that because it's not. the liquidity network means that prices are
11:11 am
being kind of maintained if you will from an internal mechanism correct prices are being determined by an algorithm which is open source and transparent and completely predictable and pre-determined still demand dictates whether you're moving up along a price curve or down with this is what was the vector from which the attack came no this has actually nothing to do with it so let's talk about the security of smart contracts some of the biggest that's encrypt of com the a flaws in the smart contract tell us how and why and how to deliver more security at the smart contract stage yeah so these are very new technologies and their promise is as great as their as their potential vulnerability this is like saying you know in the ninety's that e-mail is super vulnerable to nigerian scams yes it was and that doesn't mean that we didn't continue to get great usage out of e-mail and that doesn't mean that
11:12 am
there weren't a few people that fell for those scams i think the important thing to understand here is that the technology is new and to continue asking ourselves why do we want to advance this technology to begin with the mission of bank or is clear to enable freedom of currency to enable anyone to create a currency and to enable currencies to be freely and openly traded between each other without needing to pay a middleman without needing to pay exorbitant listing fees to exchanges even with. needing to match buyers and sellers so that liquidity is not related to volume this actually brings me to too small is beautiful and the gift that we brought you guys today. even lightly traded currencies even small local and community currencies even small project currencies currencies that may begin small and may become very large should be able to be freely and fairly traded amongst those who wish to use them and we believe that the bank or protocol in this open source network is
11:13 am
a very significant innovation in allowing us to do this in allowing anyone to create a currency and allowing people to achieve true freedom through the exchange of value between us right so she might of course can separate keynes right sure and so you're gathering at bretton woods. of course the war came from posed a bank or originally rather than the us dollar for a world the global trade currency. now you may be the only keynesian in crypto. by a little bit yeah so again we are not. we are being korean and this specific proposal made by keane's at the bretton woods conference in one thousand nine hundred four was truly brilliant and perhaps there wasn't the kind of political will or courage at the time to adopt such
11:14 am
a proposal but times have changed and we think the time is now the proposal specifically made by keane's called bank or and he made it with schumacher the author of life of small is beautiful. basically had two main components one was we cannot allow the global reserve currency to be tied to a specific nation such as the us such as china such as anyone why because the conflict of interest between international and. mastic monetary policy is too great for any nation to responsibly manage and the benefit of universal liquidity or global liquidity to that nation whose currency is also the global reserve creates a very very symmetric landscape and we see this we've seen this play out over the last seventy four years the proposal that cannes made was to have a super national currency which wouldn't be owned by any nation of course he didn't have crypto at the time he didn't even have computing but we have been inspired by
11:15 am
this proposal and asked ourselves what is the modern version of that that we can apply modern technologies to and what are the benefits so we talked about global reserve currency status to a nation and this would be the same thing whether it was the us china or whether it was a corporation and the other major component of the system that was devised at bretton woods which keane's with his bank or proposal proposed the path not taken is this relationship between debtor and creditor nations so when you set up a system that basically says the country in debt is the one responsible to close the trade deficit or to pay back the debt you're setting everyone up in a sense for failure it may not feel that way if you're the creditor nation and everyone owes you but we see this playing out now over decades when everyone is in debt to someone the system cannot thrive so keynes was seeking to eradicate this
11:16 am
huge trade imbalances essentially and so today with donald trump takes a wrecking ball to world trade what you're saying is this is what eventually happens is that with that this type of a. global unit of account you end up with these benchley these blowups that we're seeing now in the world trade and we only have like twenty seconds sure it's just like student debt if you tell all the students from day one they need to start paying back their debt before they have jobs before they have credibility your. shackling them to the debt system forever if you as the university or as the creditor nation say you know what for the next five years i'm going to pay your debt once you're strong once you're solid then you can start paying it back you might have the version of a much more balanced and healthy system where everyone is actually working together for the sustainability of the whole network all right we gotta leave it there thanks manic as a work you thanks for having me that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me my skies are stacey i would like to thank our guest dahlia

11:18 am
independent means that you're not going to take instruction from any of the fighting and we know that in this situation of syria the state of agenda the mandate that was given to us is broad it's not targeting one particular side to this conflict it is broad it is focusing on identifying investigating first. five months and the most serious. we'll. look at. my. nose if. you. have to. do it

bought. a shaky cease fire is restored between hamas militants and israel after a violent clashes on the gaza border raising fears of a full blown conflict in the region. a year after that completes liberation from islamic states the a rock. the city of mosul still lies in ruins humanitarian groups point to a dangerous lack of health care for people in the city we see the level of destruction and your goal is to a very visible. infrastructure hasn't been repaired you have. been real. close u.s. government funded radio liberty places an adverse on face book in the united states not despite a ban on targeting an american audience. it's
11:21 am
. a very warm welcome you're watching r.t. international with me becky aaron. after a recent spike in violence on the gaza border militant group hamas says it's agreed to a cease fire with israel violence escalated after an israeli soldier was killed that prompted a series of airstrikes on hamas positions there have been fears of an all out confrontation as artie's paula slayer explains. there is an easy calm that has descended along the israel gaza border that ceasefire went into effect at midnight and we have heard from the israeli army that civilians who live along the israel gaza border can return to normal routine we're hearing the same message from her must folks person who says that they have agreed to return to the era of calm between israel and the palestinian factions it follows
11:22 am
a night of heavy air strikes conducted by the israeli air force over gaza they say they hit some sixty targets while at the same time three projectiles were fired at israel by palestinian militants and israeli combat soldier was killed by a palestinian sniper and a friday deadline given by israel to her nuts in which it said that all awesome kites that were flown into israel had to cease came and went with those kites israel says that its actions were merely retaliate and it holds hamas responsible the i.d.f. used today's it's like the whole store activity is treated by hamas throughout the last month with great severity hamas chose to the security situation and moved to the consequences for its actions last night strikes were the worst we've seen since the two thousand and fourteen will between israel and hamas in that war more than two thousand palestinians were killed and seventy three israelis now there was an israeli airstrike a heavy israeli airstrike earlier in the week we are hearing from the israeli prime
11:23 am
minister benjamin netanyahu that he will continue to strike back at her must during the sabbath we hit hard our policy is clear when anyone seeks to harm us we will strike back with great force this is just the second ceasefire in some six days so of course the question is then asked whether or not it will hold egypt in the united nations brokered both cease fires and what we have heard from the united nations is that a massive full scale war was averted tensions on the ground however remain tense people are using and the question of course is if and when will be another show. donna when i asked people here that question most people believe they will be a showdown is just a question of when. friday saw israel's first casualty in the almost four months of protests on the gaza border four palestinians were also killed and more than one hundred twenty injured on the same day the total number of those killed since the start of the great march of return protests is now more than one hundred thirty
11:24 am
gaza based journalist reports from the border. with the. world nearly one hundred fifty meters away from carney the fans and as you see the palestinian youths protesters are describing and expressing expressing their rage by climbing this fans. i have to say that this is one of the hardest days we have been covering the protests on weekly basis for boy been five months we saw explosions on both sides scores were injured it's very dangerous and this was one of the toughest days we have ever witnessed by live ammunition here guys airstrikes and a lot in
11:25 am
a lot of more weapons the israelis have been using against the palestinians political commentator and they are in on the former director of a palestinian civil rights organization most in ramadan shed their views on the recent conflict. hundreds of palestinians if you accumulate the numbers have either died or been injured at the demonstrations but this is not happened because israel has used force. to the contrary israel only reacted and israel tried to keep the entire border quiet it is not in its interest to try and repel. number of but the scene and war sure did differ on that. from them to that is are you the searchers they are just raising slogans and. voices and asking the international community it over to brush up to israel to end that she'd get defeated them of movement and commodities to the or the senior

to live as normal people. in the human being and live in. and to learn. it's been a year since the iraqi city of mosul was liberated from islamic state the city had been a terror group stefanki so capital in the country for nearly three years and he's rapley agency visited the city. i think it will be unfair to say that nothing has changed but what we what we call for is that the change should happen more quicker we see the level of destruction that happened a year ago is still very visible infrastructure hasn't been repaired yet most people haven't been reopened yet there's a lack of water there's a lack of electricity. going back and potentially finding their bodies in your house in your street i
11:27 am
think that that's psychologically is very devastating because once again you're confronted to it's always horrible things that happen in mosul you know yes there are two bodies still down there and there are four bodies in that house behind us is still inside the stench coming from them is very strong our children are getting sick because of this. set and there were six of us my daughter was killed we lived in that house after the airstrikes i just couldn't live there anymore. only them. because they said we're not going to treat her our priority is the fight is we can give her an injection so she dies immediately but if her to die at home.
11:28 am
the horror of war can also be seen in the syrian city of raka the bodies of more than one thousand two hundred civilians the majority of them women and children have been discovered in three mass graves there it's claims they were killed when the u.s. led coalition bombs the area because donna has the details. tobar will mark exactly one year since i saw defeat in the caliphate self-proclaimed capital rocker and months after the u.s. coalition's victory restored or freed of torment the syrian city is still not these are the latest pictures from one of three recently discovered mars graves these birrell sites contain more than a thousand bodies. and there are three hundred to four hundred bodies in this mass
11:29 am
grave three to four catacombs are completely full of did bodies grief and despair still has the syrian city reeling as relatives time and time again have to identify their loved ones. excluded the body of only one of my sisters the other four remain missing. as they were burned by my uncle now we're looking for the uncle to call to find them. but the majority of the bodies are civilians mostly women and children our team works twenty four hours a day whether a civilian or a fighter we give the body a number well this number is over a thousand down and that's just to the three recently discovered mass graves it's a race against time and they're ready to earn their more time passes the harder it is to identify the bodies as they rot in the ground nameless. we don't have any
11:30 am
modern tools we just rely on basic information families help us identify the civilians by telling us what the person was wearing or by describing a ring or a watch or tattoo we're done to fight a lot of bodies from hair because it does not disintegrate and mass graves of raka highlight not only ice olds monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's denial in its responsibility for the city's tragedy the coalition has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty third. thousand rounds and several thousand strikes it launched into rock a city the blustery denials a contradicted by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these were taking only
11:31 am
a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s. led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble there was that an effect in washington that we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew that of that i knew that if the aircraft bomb using force for us it targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brendan lee if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down on you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed
11:32 am
bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more musgrave's are still to be found houses of people who were killed during the battle to retake the city. maybe were buried astley but also many remain in the rubble or at least in mass graves each one has to be dozens to hundreds of bodies in this green yard to make such as to beaches but that's what we know for resorts struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because there are many of the gated. examinations because the mines around there it is clear from what we have seen on the ground that they are working to exhibit bodies need far more creating a technical assistance but until someone answers the pleas of ruckus citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh. radio liberty and media outlet funded by the us government has placed inadvertent
11:33 am
facebook it was quickly noted that the outlet is prohibited from placing ads that target a u.s. audience can have more pics planes. now it turns out that one news outlet has been forced to remove its political ads from facebook was the u.s. government's own radio free europe aka radio liberty here's an extract from their mission statement which of course you can find on their web site which ends in dot . a mission is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where free press is banned by the government or not fully established journalists provide what many people cannot get locally uncensored news responsible discussion an open debate perhaps they consider the united states to be one of those countries that doesn't have a free press after all the ads were specifically targeted at americans now facebook
11:34 am
says the ads were not political which is rather interesting as they were specifically related to recent controversies regarding trump and in nato. sixty one percent of the surveyed population in twelve countries view nato favorably it's actually illegal for federally funded news outlets under the umbrella of the broadcast board of governors to direct their content at an american audience the only exception is by special request and there was none in the case of radio liberty after new york times journalists raised a red flag the board of governors deleted the ads none of the b.b. g. now where should be distributing or promoting our content massacree in order to develop or grow domestic audiences but why would facebook allow ads about nato to begin with this is just after facebook has imposed strict rules regarding commercials with political content in the united states r.t. materials frequently banned and that's even when it's not directed at an american
11:35 am
audience. and issue ads on facebook and instagram in the u.s. must be clearly labeled including a paid for by disclosure from the advertiser at the top of the at it turns out that the rules about what constitutes a political ad are pretty big as far as facebook is concerned any r.t. news related to the usa is a political advert meanwhile a commercial specifically talking about how everyone loves nato is not now russian scholar shonda laurie recently tried to promote in an interview about his recently published compendium of coverage of donald trump from russian magazines and newspapers face book shut him down for his book one to prove my it for this book cost apparently what the russian press thinks of trump is dangerous information there is this double standard if you want to break the rules to help defend freedom
11:36 am
ok which is which is really not possible it's illogical they've constantly lived in this state of the false reality where. it's ok to propagandize and to blanket the rest of the world with a cia funded message but it's not ok for russia to finance or to partially even finance a great television network that's competitive with the b.b.c. for news and information why is that not ok all this talk about fake news and propaganda has put the us political establishment and tech giants like facebook in a pretty difficult spot basically they've been reduced to saying we can't promote it if we don't agree with it he looked up and r.t. new york. both facebook and the broadcasting board of governors are yet to comment on the situation we will update you on their response as soon as we get it. students at a university in england remove a poem from

so when you want to be president. some want to be rich. that you'd like to be this is what was before katrina more people. interested always in the water. there should be. welcome back after the white house announced it's inviting president putin to washington the media are still trying to come to terms with donald trump style of diplomacy probably boyko breakstone most been dumped the worst week for trump's foreign policy the u.s. president has upset everyone because she says risked it doesn't do claim to see like this was. true from north one of the rules of diplomacy on his whistle stop
11:39 am
tour of europe went off piste and told the truth don't worry you threw in a fair few people used to it was an astonishing performance he managed to piss european allies and then in the interests of equality he has his own citizens to diplomacy is the art of learning in someone's face but nicely years is a method not found in any textbook he sobered up opponents and allies with a stream of clearly obvious as well finishing them all with a laser guided through that last one that's the most neater was the press to take a truth from here's the e.u.'s sticking washington with the bill of defending europe well nato members don't like hearing that said out loud you see they prefer diplomatically considered criticism which they can diplomatically ignore next the diplomatic headed to britain where trump had already accepted the nation in advance
11:40 am
by suggesting that the u.k. was in a spot of bragg's it in joost political turmoil how dare he politicians cried well the ones on dealing with all the turmoil that is then trump rooted in face to face in helsinki and a mainstream america exploded let's see those guys come on it's not the cold war anymore but one was called a traitor. unless he's are a disgrace for apparently costing doubt on the conclusion by the american intelligence services that russia meddled in the us elections a traitor and m.p.'s are a disgrace. he said the air was wrong. the day aloft or though he said he actually meant to say the exact opposite donald desperate backtracking was the first sign of genuine diplomacy he'd shown so much truth bomb did trump drop in the presence of who said he suggested the world's two

largest nuclear powers should try to get along dear god mr president do you know nothing. trumps diplomacy also drew attention during the recent korean nuclear crisis artie's going underground spoke to a musician who recently played at a festival in the demilitarized zone between the two koreas grandmother blog former member of punk rock band the sex pistols. he played at the demilitarized yeah upon amongst a bunch of uptight was probably just going to go in our very worst musician to try and for some solidarity through our anger and cousins out of it or to come out and and i think very whole thing had become a bit of quote certainly gone over of himself you know despicable desperately his boss think he found himself painted into a corner not really understandable and i think anything that can be done to open
11:42 am
a door or a chink you know k'naan about how it was this before. signaled your daughter this thing was before everything happened with a meeting with steve so yeah and then there was a whole bunch of paper involved things just trying to bring some awareness to what i wanted to go and find out for myself i had never been to korea before and consequently so i didn't know the. merest shoulders except to become the next president come up on the try interest of the day in the sun in the d.m.z. zone i need to sign how i met him at the station and how he hoped that in a couple of years time if everything goes all right it will become so international stuff from what i was going to work out you support a life means to go to work the most on the boat and maybe one day it will even come for so long to come because i can't imagine that there france's or north korea in the border stopped running guy. but then even out of that mad dog thank you.
11:43 am
a poem by british writer regard to playing has been removed by students at manchester university in the northwest of england they claim they all thought who's best known for writing the jungle book was racist the poem if that was penned in nineteen zero nine was displayed in a newly renovated campus building but was quickly criticized by students who said they should have been consulted before hand they say kipling's thought to it just to make the british empire present in india and dehumanized people of color the student union apologized for the apparent oversight of votes from civil rights activist my angelos is still alive rice has now replaced the poet. we asked people in london about the students' initiative. trash. this is it is a man of his time. and you've got to accept that that was his time today maybe not the way to do it if a city just her story with us free speech is out the window if you do nothing for

us a trick question i'm really into it and not kind of thing but i did read that appalled at it vandalized but nothing that's really bad to me any case and i don't agree with the facing i think there are other ways of protesting your point i think when we're looking back on history and judging people from the framework but they existed in it's a little bit different i think. everything in its current period is significant and as i write. buteux we can look at those two different views and attitudes now that we can learn a little bit from that you know that it was a bad thing to do you know it's not right now but still you know it's people doing the past i don't think the mission district called them as people that was because of an opinion they have the obviously i think there been many great artists also in this museum being fired missile to mistake and fly problem must take people in their private clothes but that doesn't necessarily mean that there are going to be
