what if he's doing on vacation but she will be back on air in september. the concerns social media platforms of policing what's acceptable to say and think that's after numerous accounts belonging to libertarian and conservative figures were banned over alleged hate speech. takes a look at what's now considered a violation of the tech giant's policies. what matters are all of the stories we
hear from all of you about the impact your connections have had on your lives you can choose from an infinite range of topics that interest you and then usually follow that topic in the news countries and cultures are brought together like never before. that was the online world as we used to know it all fluids to any of those pesky folks trying to set limits and two thousand and eighteen you'll be told to hold up if twitter decides there are spots of your world that shouldn't be discovered what if you're keen to know what someone has to say let it be former u.s. diplomat peter van buren you might as well unfollowing your interests the man's profile is shut down for good because he jokingly wish someone had eaten the face of his opponent in a twitter rant honestly that's by far not the most offensive thing you can find
online but what's abusive about showing mr van buren some support to users who did so got bands to it's not about me it's not about the group of us who have band together i think it's a bigger issue and it's an issue that's that's raised his head this week people like us who are not part of the legacy media we're not new york times shapers of opinion we're also allowed to have our say so if someone from the new york times or the washington post put something up that we know is false we can refute it almost in real time that's very threatening i think for the powers that be this tendency to want to shut people down if they disagree with you is very dangerous it's going down a very slippery slippery slope toward totalitarianism there's a word for that see and ask. well someone saw it coming when even perhaps the most controversial online talking had alex jones was told get out of here by all major platforms after all they all have to stick to their own rules.
and keep people safe from hate speech but then even those anti-left who come to hate jones went on alert could be because they thought someone would click on their profiles and see a hold up pop up alex jones a bad guy but the problem is that once you start saying that hate speech is a rationale for banning people from social media you get in some very very big territory. i'm no fan of jones so among other things he has a habit of repeatedly slandering my dad by falsely and absurdly accusing him of killing j.f.k. but who the hell made facebook the arbiter of political speech free speech includes views you disagree with but there's no turning back when it comes to the online censorship evolution so i'm not sure it works like that anymore mr cruz plus people on the left are ecstatic bring it on is their call and if it is even a crucial step forward in the fight against fake news and fringe extremism. info
wars is the tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies the uses sites like facebook can use you to tear a nation the parts these companies must do more than take down one website the survival of our democracy depends on it the world is getting older and a bit more author a tarion only lately a top u.s. intelligence committee democrat has come up with twenty legislative proposals for keeping online platforms under a close watch brace yourself as you might soon have to say goodbye to things like anonymous posts or accounts that can be tracked down yep that covers just two of the twenty. despite closing numerous accounts twitter is the only major platform that has not blocked alex jones who was only a mention was banned by a host of social media giants this is led to twitter though being criticized for being too tolerant in response to it as c.e.o.
tweeted jones hadn't violated any of the platform's rules. pro trying back to vist coming up with some creative ways of showing their support for the president in the face of russia collusion claims and one of them designed a t. shirt that confused everyone. thanks. thanks. thanks. thanks. thanks thanks.
thanks. thanks thanks. thanks. thanks thanks. thanks thanks. thanks. it's time now for the second did a series of reports on the fate of russian families who moved to syria to join islamic state parties but in a coach in a travel to southern russia to speak to a woman sentenced to eight years in prison on terrorism charges after she followed
her husband to syria. the clock is taking its current life sentenced to eight years behind bars for being part of an illegal armed group she won't actually go to jail until her youngest child turns fourteen and she's only one right now less than twelve months ago her life was old very different i was twenty nine when i left i went to turkey first with my husband i never thought i would end up there. within seven months as i did that was living in syria and pregnant with her third child she says her husband had been drawn to islam and a better life. he told me it was safe to go there he said it wasn't how it was being shown it was snowball me he said no war but the reality turned out to be far
more spin anything on t.v. they lived for two years in the city of topic which at the times was under eisel is control than they moved to rocca and she spent every day living in fear. even my girl knew she was only eight years old but she could tell the difference what was coming and american her kids explain a fighter jet drone she could tell by the sound of it. where they hiding yes well they either went downstairs or just simply stayed at home i took them out into the hole and we laid on the floor so that any shrapnel wouldn't hit us zagat had struggles to share her story she tries to stay emotionally distant from the past speaks quietly rarely looking into the camera she says she wanted to return home right from the start i told my husband that i want to go back but i couldn't live at the moment i started talking about it we had fights he told me if you want to
leave leave but i will not let you take the kids away. i knew he was able to do that he had that sort of character and i was afraid later on when they were living in iraq her husband was killed in a drone strike leavings that he died all alone with three children i started looking for ways to get out but it's not that easy you can't just leave that place it all has to be done in secret there are people that can sell you out trick i only talk to those who i knew well and one day i was told that there was this wrote that there was a way out. that claims she had no way dia the life she was leading would leave her on the wrong side of russia's anti terror laws. i stayed at home all the time i had my children i had no time for anything else i was at home taking care of my kids. she was one of the seven women and fourteen children brought back to russia in the
autumn twenty seventeen as part of a companion organized by chechen officials to repaginate the families of men who went to fight with islam make terrorists. i am very grateful to everyone who helped launch this campaign to save many women and children. while they were lucky to escape from the war in syria upon arrival in grozny she was detained by police three months later she was convicted and sentenced for being part of an illegal armed group. and while the law she broke is designed to help thwarted terror attacks some people argue that family members of radicalized individuals should not be targeted. these people need rehabilitation they need to be close to their family members under the care of their mothers they're under huge dress and prison will not help them they will only meet them more harsh i believe it's wrong to put
them behind bars for now is that good at leaves with her mother in dagestan she has to report. to the police every month can't leave the region it's difficult for both her and her brother to find work as they're on the official police list it means they all have to get by on their mother's small salary as a post office worker despite all this. she's just happy to see her children. to go visit i was literally suffering there because i was unable to provide food for my children he told me constantly mom we are hungry they were close. and now he's never lets go to the merry go round let's go to the seaside now we go everywhere dumpy now we go everywhere. mommy is hard and so my lovely hussein. was your. original question artie dagestan.
it's been ten years since the war between georgia and russia broke out after georgia were attacked the autonomous region of south the south here back in two thousand and eight the russian army intervened after five days of violence and fourteen hundred civilians killed a cease fire agreement was reached russian troops remain in the region to this day as peacekeepers but the u.s. sees this as an occupation our position on the russian occupied georgia regions. and also south ossetia is unwavering that remains unwavering today the regions are part of georgia they are not part of russia and the united states continues to support josh georgia's sovereignty its independence and also its territorial integrity despite western politicians blaming russia the e.u. use fact finding mission established that georgia was actually the one who initiated that conflict it also insists both sides violated international law and a new documentary will record the most tragic moments of the war here's
should. eat but i. know that's good we're going to get an order to feel well this is a good thing you know i'm going to. look at all that i'm not up to. here the mainstream media they reported that rush started the conflict and said nothing about soccer surely opening fire on the night of the beginning of the olympics in beijing a couple years after the war i believe that eventually other countries would learn to recognize that georgia was at fault in this war especially after the european commission came out and said that georgia started the war and i was very disappointed that they didn't seem as fighting broke out the western media remediate lead jumped to conclusions. georgia's president says russia is attacking his country dropping bombs and moving
tanks into georgian territory russia's attacks keep coming to surprise georgia saying it's withdraw from self a city or the georgians can do nothing. moscow's actions illustrate its contempt for the condemnation and criticism. i want you to know to who to blame for all of the un's east conflict and that said mr saakashvili who started this war and mr saakashvili who he's going to show and tell cells and people who feel to be on a one day i guess what i am against i would never tell you that unfortunately a commercial break will take us there in four seconds whether we do i do know that here the emotion i want to hear step. is situated some twenty minutes drive from self a city and the russian troops us t. that is
a city that not crossing i mean history to border russia's prime minister dmitry medvedev was the country's president at the time looking back at the events of two thousand and eight he says that they could have been prevented. players i'm just going to put his name valuate these events in the same way that i did before there would have been no war if second israelis actions would not be so irresponsible immoral and criminal record when it was not inevitable it was clearly a choice made by cyclist really and his aides goal was to push georgian soldiers back prince involved so as to restore order and prevent a further escalation of the conflict it was not to destroy georgia or execute cyclists really so and i think i was right in trying not to rush because that gave us the chance to calm the situation in georgia a set a year and of hise here and also to engage in calm dialogue with other countries and the european union we spoke to one woman who survived those horus ten years ago she shared what she went through or that we went to
a neighbor's house where there were fourteen people when the shelling started the house was have a little damaged and the kitchen caught fire during pools in the fighting i decided to go to my parents' house but on my way i was captured a man called gear took me away to execute me he put a knife to my throat he said he had to kill me but god saved me. and that wraps things up for this hour do stay with r.t. my colleague daniel hawkins something about it today at the top of the hour. what holds his hands to something that. he put themselves on the line. to get
accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and three. more somehow want to be rich. and should like to be first that's what before three of them or ten people that i'm interested always in the waters in the. first city. it's only natural that baby boomers are vote for policies that help them i house price boom the stock price of things and if disenfranchised the bottom you know age groups but this looks oh right tough luck buddy get a job kids get a job. my brother could write a review yes carried it for mamma the whole of south
east. that. all of us. are moving toward a shoot on google so he went on the first date. our son was born on it was the ace two thousand and eight the danger which is started a war against some of the sensor residential areas was shown by how the system grant multiple rocket launches. it was so georgia tried to regain control of the rebellious republic. we were here at the height of that war and we've returned after ten years we'll meet people whose stories we're told and we'll learn how their lives changed.
roof. of the earth is. now down as a dunedin and. passed on top of things to. grow it is a curious will. this will. wonder enough to confuse those trees image really with this begin where you lizards go you know what it is that there are blood. there just in the here. it. is natural so unless you. loose your earth is.
the soviet union was falling apart and the republics were striving for the right to self-determination the nationalists even came up with the slogan georgia is for georgians schools were forbidden to teach in the a setian language south the city rebelled declared independence involved broke out . in one thousand nine hundred two the warring parties signed a peace accord but failed to come to an agreement russian brokered the peace talks since then russian peace makers have been helping to keep order i asked god how far. more of. the snow sleet. dump on the bunkers one i'm going
to see. john says. in two thousand and eight maya best diavolo worked as a nurse at the russian peacekeepers base is stored in the way of the georgian army . base came under massive shelling from the georgians for many hours. for always there was. a machine and. this followed tickle. this silly reserve of the cereal. if it goes first of all is either e.t.e.c. enough. to risk or most. resist see. how little jimmy and the whole useable arts he will do the false will the spiritual school that in.
my. role. was in exploring. at the top of our new regions to do three civil. but you have a. dog or a museum. i mean you really just do this for you know. mio was also seriously injured she was unaware that reinforcements were fighting their way through to the peacekeepers and that her son was with the military. he would run into an ambush near the peacekeepers base and be badly wounded. the peacekeepers couldn't hold the georgian troops bank for too long and by the afternoon of august the eighth georgian turning said already entered see involved.
cruising down the meaning you. should all of. those soon yes the. women when he was nine his house was hit by a shell which caused the walls to fall down and the roof to cave in the rebel. says should go above ground. but only did bush sr. village came under shelling for a few days. after the war there were no houses left on damage to.
shoot to kill some down the street at. least a month. ago police are very. softly said what i thought. i was. going to lose is this for you grow older sister all of and you follow the others don't most of us. catch us trusting for wanted to kill me first. it's the kids still going to play at the place that was once their home even though a new house was built for their family just seemed. to offer you support i suppose truly just a three month usually school bus through them. jim. says
one and his parents managed to flee the village just in time and avoided the oncoming georgian army they didn't know the road was under the control of georgian troops. coming out of the south past the end of the ball could. not pass full force made smart. enough classrooms to bush in the. thousands of civilians flint to russia but not everybody managed to get their own homes many were killed on the way to. the city in this way incapable of defending themselves on their own against the will train georgian army people died in skin. the peacekeepers were surrounded and couldn't help. russia looms the operational force in georgia to peace the
military were fighting their way through to relieve. oh george interest and saakashvili claimed russia had a tank georgia my country soon sold if i was against russian aggression russian russian troops invaded georgia they being bombing georgia numerous warplanes and specifically targeting civilian population and did you take a gamble your government launched its own attempt to retake so sasha we didn't that . we didn't. the morning of the eights my wife calls me and says that they bombed a couple hundred meters away from her mother's house i remember. i was actually crying and afraid and thinking that if anything happens to my family i'm going to kill saakashvili. and i meant that we met jim is just ten years ago he's an american who lives in florida his wife john is the sense in august two thousand and
