exceptionally qualified to judge. and among the stories making the week that was the west hits out at russia's g.r.u. military intelligence service exposing an alleged campaign of global cyber attacks . welcome to the weekly here on r t international where we bring you the latest headline news and the top stories from the past week. russia's undefeated m.m.a. fighter got me out of has defended his u.f.c. lightweight title beating ireland's conor mcgregor but the event was marred by a mass brawl at the end r.t. sports correspondent alex he had a shift key reports from the russian champs hometown.
absolute scenes in my house because the ocean yet to keep learning you know little out of this guy says happy going to is still the champion of u.s.c. and these people are going absolutely bonkers right. but. it's important to know that most of these legal did not sleep tonight and they were waiting for the slice. it was pretty loud i have to say out in the street celebrating for many it has been not only a sleepless night but probably a sleepless week because the broadcast from last vegas started at five o'clock in the morning and many packed the cinema which was the main venue for broadcasting this event as early as two at three am in the morning.
when it comes to the fight itself it was absolutely incredible how calm and collected. are going to have had been through that fight and he won absolutely deserve victory in the fourth round after a choke on the corner mcgregor was the most anticipated fight probably in the u.f.c. twenty five year long history a lot of controversy before the fight a lot of control over c. after the fight apparently a scuffle between members of steam and mcgregor steam happened right after the bell right off claimed a clear and just a victory but interestingly enough he walked off the ring before even being able to raise the belt above he said as a clean deserved winner that speaks volumes about you know the heat and the control of the cia around that fight. leyline.
you need all day to topple just like chicken or do you think it will these days. come back. to. iraq where we. send the most like location location and then i come back what do we want doesn't make the girl. free i'm supposed to. get the money that's salty and pull the rug and she can go live that is for me more than fight for the title more than made even the local news personally.
the no one slept tonight but you can expect that nobody will sleep here even today the party is on right now just on the yes yes. like yourself do the reporting from a couch i live in dagestan republic no money out of apologize after the fight saying he didn't show his best side by starting the brawl the incident is being investigated and could see action with the possibility of the champion being stripped of his title mcgregor though didn't appear to hold a grudge he poses a tweet saying good knock looking forward to the pre-match. brett kavanaugh has been sworn in as a u.s. supreme court justice by one of the narrowest margins in the country's history as hundreds of people protested on capitol hill at his nomination due to sexual assault allegations against him senators who took to the floor to state their
feelings demonstrated the clear divide in the country. when the history of the senate is written this chapter will be a flashing red warning light of what to avoid. truly. judge kavanagh's confirmation is a low moment for the senate. or the court. of the country. i just. don't see how we can put somebody on the supreme court who thinks that the president is above the law the very least we should expect a nominee for our highest court to be honest. i do not believe judge kavanaugh has met the standard he puts his thumb on the scales of justice in all ways where the bias towards corporate interests i knew him as an honest and dedicated public servant i was proud to be at the white house as president trump and the nomination
of this exceptionally. i do not see an open mind i do not see fairness i see a partisan ideologues who will do traditional backflips to rule in favor of large corporations the powerful and the elite. to the supreme court before the road and undermine the court's legitimacy and continue to diminish the american people's trust in it. i thought. police arrested more than one hundred and fifty demonstrators on the steps of the u.s. capitol in washington on saturday some protesters continually stalled the voting by shouting from the senate gallery and the chair u.s. vice president mike pence had to ask for order over a dozen times. sergeant at arms will restore order in the gallery.
sergeant at arms will restore order in. sharjah arms will restore order to get. restore order in the. donald trump denounced democrats conducted themselves likening their actions to mob rule earlier my colleague neil harvey discussed the issue with scott e-mail hughes r t america's evening news host she things kavanagh's confirmation highlights the deep split in america head of november's midterm elections breyer with a poll back and said no facts matter we actually need to see what we have hard evidence on that might hurt long term the women's movement here in the united states as many women were supporting the supporting the accuser just because they
felt like accusers had not been heard recently in the united states this is one year to the day of the need to move men happening on the other hand in the end people who needed to make sure there was evidence and i think that's the reason why you saw so many g.o.p. senators who were might have been wavering actually go on and push the confirmation for do you think we can equate support for. support for trump himself they're going to try to whether that's true or not it's up to everybody i don't think this issue has won people over to cross over the lines and either before or against president trump it just shows how deeply divided america is right now and that's very interesting four weeks out from a midterm election for president trump everything right now is for or against president trump so there's no sort of i like him but i don't support a policy and it is truly a very partisan divided country and unfortunately as has come out recently a lot of the issues that came out this over the cabinet has been because of the media and the dishonest media here in the united states that we're showing on both sides putting out allegations that kind of show they had more of an agenda than
just reporting the facts. and with the bitter dispute over cavanagh that's been dividing the us some have chosen to cash in. the cream court nominee brett kavanaugh brett kavanaugh cavanagh and dr christine glass before and who accuses cavanagh of sexually assaulting her when the two were both in high school. i. drank beer with my friends almost everyone did i like beer. i still like the. i hide how hard is it for western intelligence services to get the names and job descriptions of various officials of the g.r.u. or any other government agency so i think that's what they're doing but it makes it
sound like there's something behind it we may not know the whole truth which saw it is hiding something but it's a narrative which is important and the russians you know you bogeyman is becoming firmly embedded in public mindset and it's not just about alleged malign activities by russia secret services moscow's trolls have apparently now turned their sights on hollywood and the star wars franchise in particular and their potential picks up the story. hey america they stole your election hey britain they stole your dream of a united europe democracy will never be the same because of russian memes thralls boughts well surely there is something still sacred in western culture are off limits to the russians.
oh no the kremlin folks even got their hands on star wars russian trolls weaponized style was criticism as an instrument for information warfare with the purpose of pushing for political change this was from a real study by a brave jet i call or i mean who claims there's been a force that was fighting to make the last jet i fail wow thirty seven pages remember how the movie got booed at when those need fans couldn't forgive the director for spoiler alert killing luke skywalker and forgive him for going against all the tropes so dearly cherished by the fandom remember how the star wars lovers army even campaign to fund a remake well now you know who did it the sith sorry the russians had a great disturbance in the force as millions of doses suddenly cried out and had
a sudden decide to prove it the guy behind the research analyzed almost a thousand online messages for the director and his result was more than half of the hate tweets came from trolls some of them were russian. the director didn't just pay attention he shared the link to the study with his twitter followers looking forward to reading it but what the top line describes is consistent with my experience online well some vendors got even more disgruntled when they said they found their own tweets in the research it was a bad movie highly unlikely that it was a dry run for bots to practice we hated this film too loved rogue one but were totally underwhelmed by the last gen dime so much so that my oldest questioned if it is worth going to the cinema to see any more disney star wars so did nothing to
make me change my mind. mark a very disturbing it wasn't disney not even the director it was the damn room skinny's the weekly continues here on our to international after this short break. unfortunately the united nations security council in this approach to yemen is only to listen to the speech of envoys that affords as many months or two months and then that isn't to tubes when leaks to the owners and i mean that imminent to busy in terms of the security council would make these statements which are always ready to. join me every
thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to a guest of the world the politics sports business i'm show business i'll see if the . u.s. is trying to cling to this idea of the u.s. dollar reserve currency empire they've built over a post world war two hero for everyone gets into debt to the america and pays homage to america china russia iran africa command that they're all saying now we want markets elizabeth even trump wants markopolos up they want to go for it we want to trade directly bilaterally we don't want to be part of the globalization anymore. welcome back to the weekly u.s. special envoy for afghanistan it's all my home is on a visit to the middle east and a bit to quote bring the taliban to the negotiating table however they don't seem especially willing to accept the offer was granted access to
a taliban commander and asked him about the proposal. what the americans never want to cooperate with the taliban and the taliban has never asked the americans again to cooperate against islamic state the americans are bombing us while we fight i still believe a suggestion of direct talks between the taliban and washington came from the u.s. state department last friday. this is the ministration has made it clear that it is prepared to engage with and participate in the goshi asians with both the taliban and the afghan government under the leadership of the taliban doesn't want to negotiate with the americans and this never wanted this and the leadership of the taliban never gave permission to any member to negotiate on their behalf u.s. defense secretary james mattis had a meet and greet with the afghan president in kabul they finally decided to play nice in a bid to get the taliban down to talks but just one day before their words of peace
washington dropped a big f. thirty five b. bomb on the taliban looks like the peace process is getting off on the right foot especially when the u.s. has for years led up to this moment promising both talk and terror i want to reinforce to the taliban that the only path to peace and political legitimacy for them is through a negotiated settlement to the taliban when their choices are to reconcile live in a relevance. we have the taliban willing to come to the negotiating table there's no talking to the taliban we don't want to talk to the taliban we're going to finish what we have to finish so it's no surprise the taliban is reluctant to trust promises of peace and why would they seek it anyway in the past several months the taliban has made substantial territorial gains their spring offensive took coalition forces completely off guard seizing regions all over afghanistan over one
hundred soldiers and police officers were killed in just one week of the offensive and that's not even counting last week's u.n. report covering civilian casualties in battles between the coalition and taliban forces. and as you've. seen. over the last. five. dollars or whatever. that would mean that. america's two thousand and one invasion of afghanistan hoped to oust the taliban from power but what materialized it was a seventeen year long war the longest conflict in u.s. history and now fast approaching a monumental peace talks to be held in moscow between the taliban and the afghan government we can confirm that we will attend the moscow conference we're waiting
for a date and then agenda then we will decide what can be achieved from the conference if successful these talks could mark a step forward in a conflict that currently has no end in sight donald quarter r.t. . india has signed a five billion dollar deal with russia to buy its advance s. four hundred air defense system. the s four hundred is russia's mobile anti-missile defense system it's one of the world's most sophisticated surface to air weapons has a range of four hundred kilometers and can track up to eighty targets at once and india is not the only country keen to buy for instance china and turkey have also
signed on the dotted line qatar saudi arabia and iraq have expressed interest on a broader scope though the u.s. has threatened sanctions against any country buying weapons in general from russia interest on the reports from new delhi. it's not just india expanding its defensive capabilities against it its regional rivals like pakistan or china for example it is also india sending a very strong political message because every time any country really shows interest or indeed by using a russian weapon an advanced russian weapon washington while it falls flat with washington for example when china bought the very same and a missile defense system which india has now ports and some fighter jets to go with russia it was slapped with sanctions and now india is defying this potential threat even though washington for example one pentagon general has said that while indeed
sanctions are on the table it is ultimately up to donald trump eventually it will be donald trump's call whether or not to punish india for what it's doing and india is no exception in terms of the pressure being exerted on them and at the end of the day it will depend on how resilient kelley exult in the face of this pressure and if i was to list everything that the two leaders will discuss from nuclear corporation to agriculture to space and so on and so forth could easily take the rest of the day and also a very warm very cordial atmosphere between believe is. good . so really it's interesting while russia and india are doing business it's fair to say that the ball is in
washington's court. that's a snapshot of just some of the top headlines from the last seven days for further details on all those stories and many more head to our website r.t. dot com thanks for tuning in. the way to the united states is dangerous for most of the illegal immigrants. cause you've got a modest but that's a lot of sympathy i want you we got most. of the lastest on this about us but if many of them look for refuge in the so-called sentry sites the refuse to share information about undocumented migrants with federal authorities the best person to ask than call mom. was you know no i've ended up as i'm not god i'm in

pull in the welcome to worlds apart women's rights have long been a bargaining chip for all titians but perhaps nowhere with such devastating consequences as in iraq half a century after the constitution granted the iraqi women equal rights they face increasing pressure on how to dress what to do with their lives and when to marry their daughters off as the effort to democratize iraq resulted in the further subjugation of its women well to discuss that i'm now joined by hama at war a prominent iraqi human rights activist and founder of the amal association madame ad words good to talk to you thank you very much for your time. thank you now first of all let me ask you about the latest political development in your country five months after the national elections the major political factions have finally managed to agree on the three main posts in the country is that a positive development as far as you're concerned. oh yes thank you you know we
