going to. draw sure and says of i still being. a little right. as. preparations to. syria. so we take in the news on the streets of the french capital unfortunately when they are imprisoned. there are many cases of muslims being brought in to prison these people should be trying to come into trying. to do a new track. and what's being cold. against its members.
worldwide news stories for this hour from all around the world this is r.t. international welcome to the true. well a group comprised of nearly a dozen latin american nations and canada is ramping up pressure on the president of venezuela and then to drive nicolas maduro from power the so-called lima group is throwing its support behind opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim leader want to go however the group's latest meeting on monday was disrupted by a protest. the lima group has called for the suspension of military cooperation with my daughter's government high level venezuelan officials from entering the territories kind of as foreign minister has urged the local military to get behind something president my daughter labeled a sick joke. this statement is disgusting and laughable it's difficult to know
whether to laugh or vomit or both when i read it i wanted to be sick and asleep one request is crazier than the other. on behalf of all the people of venezuela we see yes to dialogue a thousand times dialogue. dialogue or not a dozen a you states of now recognize one of the interim president or at least until new elections are held however a source in italy's ruling coalition confirmed to r.t. that rome vetoed the e.u. wide statement of recognizing the opposition leader as head of state was the quote l has thanked brussels but appealed to italy. nobody. on behalf. of those who are hoping for the best to live this is see a thing queue for the recognition given by the european blog where waiting for easily. led like the rest of europe they will take a step towards the recognition of the international support gone the. previously an
unknown figure in global politics can seemingly be attribute it to the work of one man. looks at the rise of the opposition leader and his man in the shadows. they've made him the new interim president but haven't learned how to say his name . you know present one go you know one guido ok mr pompei oh my i have issues with spanish so you know. what you know if you know it's probably not about the language it's just that a little while ago very few people knew who. was even in ms well. i had never heard that name before the first time i had about him was in social media when he declared himself president when. i heard about one where you do just recently supposedly he's the other president of venezuela which i honestly think is a joke. it was
a one way during the first time i heard about why go it was two years ago. so you. go i don't own this short while ago and when this political situation started a little bit. for those abroad who loathes nicolas maduro there's an easier last name to say lope is if you've never heard of low poll the low because some very important people will definitely have. venezuela should allow lippold alone a political prisoner and husband toting out of prison immediately this man's political ambitions have arranged for a mayor of caracas to the president's office his wife has made friends with world leaders as if she was part of let's say the g. twenty herself so why do we keep on hearing we've recognized why and why go as the new president instead of we've recognized loophole the low because first of all he's now under house arrest after being in all kinds of trouble with law enforcement but even his wife says that doesn't stop him from pulling the strings
and home he works with all of the opposition everyone he speaks with her ongoing who is now president and all of the members of popular will and members of all the parties the big ones and the little ones he's taking charge of uniting the opposition one by dos says they're always in contact and always see eye to eye while even the american media is hinting mr why don't you could just be a pawn in someone else's hand according to the opposition party though he makes his own decisions your polo has been imprisoned for almost five years now so communication with him it's very difficult we have to speak with him so he's funny so i mean basically. gives ideas the decisions are being made by one and the rest of the. perhaps for those who are trying to overthrow a government because of how authoritarian and corrupt it is admitting the whole show is being run by someone who could be
a full on state department puppet is kind of dodgy we can leaks has spilled the beans on exchanges between us diplomats with step by step descriptions of how leopoldo lopez should rise to power by the way speaking of scandals lopa says wife was all over the news when a mountain of local cash worth sixty thousand bucks was found in her car. this money is to pay for my grandma who is hundred years old and has been hospitalized three days she has no insurance and a country where it takes a suitcase full of all of our bills to buy a coffee no one out there protesting in the street has that kind of money so maybe someone like juan why do so without the awkward baggage is an easier sell. the pentagon has issued a stark warning that i soul will quickly resurface in syria if indeed america goes ahead with its troop withdrawal plan it is very likely that isis will have the
opportunity to set conditions for a future resurgence and territorial control we have just absolutely decimated isis absolutely obliterated isis the have won against isis absent sustained counter terrorism pressure isis could likely resurgent syria within six to twelve months well currently the us has around two thousand ground troops in syria they provide a technical support for kodesh forces in the north of the country and of course have been targeting syrian government soldiers nationwide and washington's involvement started back in twenty fourteen as it launched its terror operations now the country became a war zone around eight years ago now but for now right now syria has recaptured large areas of his territory controlled by its government forces and backed by russia and iran but while president trump claims eisel has been defeated in the country there are some terrorist held pockets remaining here in eastern syria in close proximity that is to a pair of u.s. bases now trump's plan to pull out u.s.
soldiers was met with criticism within washington but the president claimed their return could be called whenever necessary. but you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of ice to see a resurgence you know where we're doing out we'll come back if we have to we have very fast airplanes we have very good cargo planes we can come back very quickly when donald trump announced his decision to withdrawal from syria a couple of months ago. there were a huge amount a huge number of off the record briefings by the pentagon by security intelligence agencies we see that the intelligence chiefs are suggesting that u.s. troops should stay in. in syria because of the threat from isis but in trump himself of course has said that in relation to iraq and in relation to syria that the reason why the u.s. troops isn't to do with isis anyway it's to do with. protecting the interests of israel by keeping iran at bay and stopping the expansion of iranian influence the
pentagon also with its own motives they would like to stay they tend to like to stay in the country in conflicts. you know. you know until the cows come home as we see in afghanistan i think it's more that they don't know they don't want to follow the president's order to get out and i think they're trying to justify it and build up pressure in the media to keep the troops there i mean while washington is ordering foreign fighters held in syria to be repatriated home here's what the pentagon had to say. the united states calls upon other nations to repatriate and prosecute citizens detained by the s.t.'s and commence the continued efforts of the s.d.f. to return these foreign terrorist fight says they come trees of origin france is one country that's confirmed is preparing to allow jihadists to overturn in the coming months as warnings or most of the withdrawal of any troops could allow the
terrorists to escape in the region but some people in france called it a worrying development a solid two penske now investigates. as false prepares for the return of jihad ists captured in northern syria there has been outreach suggests and just saw this people who went to fight for their enemy their traitors to the nation they fought against us and our civilization their terrorist barbarians their enemies to france . to consider the return of the french jihadists is a decision that i find criminal regard to the safety of our citizens the announcement you turn in policy was sparked by the u.s. is surprise decision to pull troops out of syria and concerns that french prisoners could be released from kurdish jails or scape as a result have forced the government to make hasty contingency plans the justice minister says france would rather keep track of them rather than see them evading justice. we've made a choice which is that we prefer control which means we're bedridden them to france
for french hardest work amongst the biggest contingent of beisel recruits from europe but i saw cells were responsible for the paris attacks in two thousand and fifteen. the idea that a hundred and thirty could not be were perpetrated isn't going down well in the capital surface of it's frightening but we need to be strong and the government needs to protect people on the hardest he'd french people. this is very bad it's absolutely clear that among the people who could commit terrorist attacks here says really divides these people should be tried in the country where they come into trial they decided to leave france to new practices and ideas and there against france another area that's worrying some is just how the country will cope with an influx of new joe hart arrests already france is struggling to deal with the fossils of individuals currently under surveillance by the intelligence
services some of those on the list have gone on to carry out attacks in. kidding sure he should cat who killed five people and wounded eleven in less than two months ago in strasburg there's also concern that if they end up in prison they could compound the problem of radicalization behind bars do best and it can create a problem a problem of radicalisation so maybe it's better for them to serve their sentences there so as not to make the situation here wars. we need to take things seriously and convince them that violence is not the solution mentos most all please always talk about unfortunately when they are in prison they are able to brainwash other inmates so perhaps we should be protecting prisoners from them yet. there are many cases of muslims being radicalized in prison the french government says it needs to be prepared for all of it when it comes to an american withdrawal from syria but
with prisons already hosing hundreds of suspected terrorists and radicalization behind bars still a huge problem the idea of packing more is causing concern that france could be about to pick up a new ticking time bomb. azzi paris we've spoken to and i mean member of the french national rally it was called the decision to return jihadists irrational and criminal. i think we she did not send those people to go back to france because they decided to focus to fight for the east and the state so they come because you know that's french an e-mail going on to actually is being recruited known because we know that among the terrorists who attacked paris in two thousand and fifteen there were some of them who fought in syria so we shouldn't accept any more any person who decided to leave france to going to say where we
know are so that french prisons are sometimes screwed is that make. the nation so we shouldn't accept as well that they could be in contact with any other prisoner in france many of them who are supposed to be french have a double nationalities so we should enforce depreciation all their nationalities so that they're not french anymore we can add the other country because they have to. take care of them we don't care if. america's n.b.c. network has named a russian agent who is eyeing up the white house the viral story turned shah linked hawaii democrat to the kremlin and labeled her a puppet. and picks up the trail in new york. so n.b.c. has gone out of its way to inform us americans that we should disapprove of congresswoman tulsi gabbert answer twenty twenty presidential campaign why because it is backed by
a vile kremlin conspiracy so what's the proof well they've got their evidence in order among other things one of their claims is brace yourself but apparently sputnik news and r.t. published articles about her site celebrated go bones announcement defended her positions in russia and i sent in a time just to choose a pool and for most now r.t.m. sputnik have written about all sorts of different candidates but that's beside the point the fact that candidate who favors a non interventionist foreign policy was mentioned by news outlets from russia is considered to be a huge smoking gun but it gets worse she was mentioned on some obscure forums analyst's new knowledge told n.b.c. news the chatter relates to go beyond in anonymous message boards including those known to right wing troll campaigns a hot new knowledge you remember them don't you that's the cyber security firm that was caught running a false flag campaign in alabama election they were running operations to make it look as if russian bots were supporting a candidate they did not like now and b.c.
failed to mention that in their exposé but they do have one more source meet mr josh russell he lives in indiana and on his free time he uses the internet to hunt down russian trolls i'm just a regular person and i don't have any relationship with any type of won't. protect companies from social media companies but n.b.c. says that we should believe him and this isn't the first time mainstream media has played this card remember when they were widely alleging that black lives matter was a russian asset at least one of the ads that was bought by this russian troll farm on facebook was a black live matter ad they are still going after jill stein. the green party presidential candidate facial you weren't planted there with us cable which is part of what is raising questions among investigators and don't forget that bernie sanders is also a pawn they used automated social media box and what appeared to be paid operatives
in russia and other countries specifically to target ernie supporters i think most people are tired of the russian side and most people don't buy into it anyhow but yeah they're using the label to put on her in order to potentially do you radio her campaign they're afraid of her because she is independent she speaks her mind she is very exceptional popular support from her in her own state and she goes against a lot of the abolition of concepts that are there and she is someone i think the country needs so the message is pretty simple someone questioning the status quo thinking outside the box opposing the u.s. foreign policy well if that's the case don't listen to them it's just a voice from russia to confuse you and get you to not believe in our great american leaders don't think obey. r.t. new york a dissident footballer is being chased by crane through the earth already is and
thailand despite t.v. evidence he was playing a game at the time of a terror act that he's being hunted for we look at this story and plenty more to the pre. the u.s. in order to guarantee obeyance by the population will engage in soft totalitarianism and that's clearly on the march and the population is ready for it you know they were those had to say they got to get ready for their get ready to be controlled. seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any belief yet to shape

a step by step guide to killing politicians from where and which weapons to buy to which shoes to wear for the kill choose target at will the more well known the better. working groups women with non migrant background are preferable white german women are ideal body guards will pay less attention to women who are pretty made up and well dressed the recalls to take out specific names politicians it also encourages would be it is to familiarize themselves with the surroundings their potential targets frequent whether it's a sick prank all real intent is hard to tell however the tone in which it's presented coupled with a recent serious attack by must assailants on an a.f. day local party leader in bremen gives us a more sinister edge leaving sold an alternative for germany to wonder if they are a target peter all of a r.t.

footage of him playing a football game right at the time of the crimes he is being accused of this may seem as a credible alibi to anyone but here is the problem it may not be enough to vindicate him since he took a swipe not just at political elite of his home country but particularly at shaikh solomon being a. high ranking member of bahrain's royal family and a man who was one of the front runners for the presidency of fever in twenty sixteen the post which was eventually won by gianni in front back then right in the middle of the campaign either a b. accuse the shake of being responsible for his arrest and torture sheik soman was responsible for the football players for the national team ok. be that he did know anything about it i am an example of it and i have evidence the royal denies these allegations but here is the most twisted part of the sport despite losing the bid to rule fifa shake selman currently holds the position of senior vice president of the association yes the same body which is under massive global pressure to do

greetings and salyut. this weekend before the super bowl punted itself into a dud and adam levine took off his pillow and curtain print t.-shirt the united states congresswoman from hawaii democrat tulsi gabbert officially announced her candidacy for the us presidency that's a pretty simple straightforward news item to report watchers the same simple straightforward news item that was one of the most news outlets reported she was running after she an officially announced a few weeks ago on van jones a c.n.n. show but apparently reporting on this simple news item appears say sputnik russians .
