entirety and we couldn't do that but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting because they were what we proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but their partial removal we proposed to the united states to leave articles of sanctions that impede the cereal and economy and the law of our people so with conflicting information about what actually took place at the meeting between the two leaders we've now got the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped in hanoi jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing the song of peace as he praised the troops america does not see conflict but if we are forced to defend ourselves we will fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows about in nobody wants to play with you would think

that with the utter trainwreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donald trump would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's good that the president did not get him anything was a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know they've got they won and gradually they will see they were sanctions regime begin to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of our economic prosperity that could be possible it's a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly flawed democratic presidential candidate toasting gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming. and

waging a regime change war in north korea so well you know i'm deeply concerned about the fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change war policy might pompei all laid out the washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w. bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to win a nobel peace prize any time soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok caleb mop and artsy new york. the experts we talked to believe the trump's administration's whole case. and separating north korea is trust in whatever promises and there is willing to make. it was not no deal versus bad deal
3:14 am
it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there's a crisis in confidence between north korea in the u.s. you know kim knows what's going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word around the world trump is going to try to show success he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions in in vietnam over over north korean missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter the political turmoil he's

south asian politics and security acts but i'm not one to mr a sees a foreign hand in the conflict what we are seeing at the moment is the low intensity conflict on the ground on the sea is going to go on. what you need to remember here is that although the pakistani prime minister region the indian captured pilot has ecclesiastes there's a lot of history at the high end of the combat has to do with the phrase he's personally coming from the united states saudi arabia and united claiming that it's kind of forced pakistan to take the course you said that if they do neither of these parties want to. go down the peace and in pakistan the army has the state so that is a military establishment which is their whole law on india we haven't lost the

the workers of the. palestinians have been protesting at the israeli gaza border every friday since march they demand the return of lands now occupied by is proving to be honest. and this medics were among the wounded israeli army says it was responding to an attempted attack on the gaza strip. now facebook has made available to pages of the my fake media group after a ten day suspension of the group's c.e.o. and he said now and in the now post on your colleague struck back at critics.
3:20 am
we're back up facebook has heard our calls for freedom yes after selectively censoring us all four of math experiences including the now were taken down for no reason other than pressure from pro-war think tanks and a lazy report from c.n.n. the messages are slick filled with graphics filled with ground grabs very graphic. aimed at young left leaning americans getting news from social media and the videos have been viewed tens of millions of times billions of times thank you with messages like this it's pretty amazing that the same countries that spent two years screaming about alleged russian election meddling in twenty sixteen is now a law the us meddling and venezuela it was definitely your venezuela piece that got us in trouble i said sensor your feet and hands would love that but not as much as the german marshall fund alliance for securing democracy that's the us government funded think tank that told c.n.n. to launch an investigation to get us censored. facebook in the first place who's
3:21 am
the alliance for securing democracy and why would they care about us it's a hawkish project whose advisory council includes people like bill kristol the dude from project for a new american century that sold us the iraq war also mike morrell former acting cia director john podesta former chairman of hillary clinton's presidential campaign and jake sullivan former national security adviser to vice president joe biden so in the alliance of neo cons and centrist and former intelligence officials funded by the u.s. government through a temper tantrum to get c.n.n. to encourage facebook to censor us that's creepy as for me my palestine video and he said you gotta stop letting me speak my mind this c.n.n. report was deep though showing up at the homes of people who work with us contacting contractors we work with to collect dirt classy stuff and their investigation it was a quick google not the pentagon paper if you don't believe us buzz we did an exposé
3:22 am
three years ago revealing what was pretty much widely known and again google but c.n.n. still got us i mean as much as i'd like to say we did a ton of digging on this if you were to you know start googling these pages you could quickly sort of work it back to see so what did we do wrong they violate a rule to facebook say these pages violated a policy in source no did we hide our affiliation with russia they weren't necessarily really hiding there were really hiding but they were kind of yeah what exactly did i say wrong a lot of legitimate arguments. it sounds like you liked what you saw great viral videos great design you know and the content was pretty critical of the u.s. government of us mainstream media but nothing that would be totally out of the ordinary necessarily it sounds like we have a great page and we're following the rules we did have to change our about us section to reflect our parent company details. it's
3:23 am
a new policy apparently that suddenly became a rule after we were taken down without warning a verified page with over two point five billion views many outlets that receive some kind of government funding and don't have info about it on their facebook pages let's call this what it is mass hysteria in the us of anything having to do with russia and exaggerated fear of russian influence by media that thinks a few facebook pages one trump the election c.n.n. wouldn't care if we were funded by japan this is a mccarthyist witch hunt they didn't even bother engaging with our content that don't you guy even seem to like us we've got editorial control over the videos we make and unlike c.n.n. we get to tell the truth about war and corporations because we don't rely on advertising dollars from weapons companies we'll see and then have to mention their parent company eighty and who help the embassies warrantless wiretapping of americans remember that look all media is funded by corporations or governments so
3:24 am
we're going to talk about funding and let's include all media in that conversation let's apply the same standards to everyone not just those affiliated with the country a bunch of neo cons hate we're looking at you facebook in the meantime we're just going to keep doing our thing thanks for the shout out c.n.n. at least most of his buddies facebook won't be doing itself any favors if it keeps cracking down on projects that overlies is like. facebook is dying the potential is going to die commercially if it doesn't have the respect of the people who use it and that's that that's the dilemma they're in governments are putting the pressure to do certain things but their audiences and put him under pressure to do the opposite a lot to make their minds up which side of the fence they're on you know all of these big mic media companies are actually under scrutiny about what they actually do and you know how they actually operate and what they allow what they don't allow
3:25 am
in how they're funded and so on i think the idea of this is to do with misleading information is a red herring it's nothing to do with the general thing about disintegration and i'm afraid that's the space that's developing and those that people won't accept genuine opinions which they this they disagree with or just want try and suppress them because they're involved in psychological warfare. a documentary called crisis child which is that next here on r.t. international.
3:26 am
