the army incurred heavy casualties losing eight hundred soldiers as it fought to repel a surprise attack by dapat a syrian offshoot of al qaida ambush and number of casualties were confirmed to r.t. arabic by the syrian army and with washington recently putting up a million dollar reward for information on the thumb of bin laden's son it looks like the war on terror has been given a fresh spur as ron guys have explained. the war on terror. begins with. but it does not in there the war on terror is almost a tradition now the pot of the american way of life no end in sight either so traumatic it was nine eleven that it set america all on a seemingly endless crusade there's an old poster out west as i recall that said wanted dead or alive and the does seem endless no matter how many battles they win
how many islamist sex they destroy how many bin ladens they kill is always someone else we deliver devastating blows to the al-qaeda leaders that attacked us on nine eleven and deliver justice to osama bin laden we have won a good study says we've beaten them and we've beaten a badly now it's a sama bin laden's son hamza bin laden and washington is afraid that he's becoming a new terror i call it homs it been modern is the son of the deceased a.q. leader some of the blood and is emerging as a leader in the a.q. franchise has been has released audio and video messages on the internet calling on his followers to launch attacks against the united states and its western allies eased also recently praised by the lead. blacklisted by the
u.n. married allegedly to the daughter of a nine eleven plane hijacker favored by his late father sama as his successor he's calling for attacks on the u.s. to avenge the killing of his father same crazy ideology what's unclear his whereabouts the u.s. seems to believe you could be anywhere in south central asia it all leads to one conclusion apparently al qaeda is coming back showing signs of confidence will threaten ocurred and the threat from radical islamic terrorism a continuing threat posed by al qaeda there are according to various estimates more than thirty thousand active fighters across a number of countries loyal to al qaida ironically the u.s. stands accused of arming them though unintentionally in syria with weapons intended
for moderate groups being seized by islamists in yemen c.n.n. reported with the saudis and their coalition partners handing american made weapons to i'll qaeda linked fighters history it seems repeats itself in the nine hundred eighty s. during the soviet war in afghanistan the u.s. funded and armed the mujahideen including asama bin laden say some they called them freedom fighters the mujahideen the islamists when they were fighting the u.s.s.r. but it didn't take long for those freedom fighters to morph into terrorists and the taliban into al qaida and they just won't go away no matter how many times they beat them it seems they just keep rising from the dead. back in the bottle if the us does not want to put it back in the bottle the us funnel funneled. thousands of
tons of weapons into syria to arm forces that it knew very well were. allied with al qaida and allied with the muslim brotherhood and so when it suits the u.s. purposes it will work with al qaida and other terrorists and when they become a problem after september the eleventh or after they morphed into islamic state in syria and iraq then of course it will it will attack them with more attention being paid to al qaeda recently s.d.f. opposition forces are besieging the last pocket of i saw resistance in syria the village of our groups u.s. backed fighters have been unleashing heavy shelling on ice of positions the kurdish wing of the s.d.f. says the fighting could be over within days before hostilities resumed over the weekend civilians including the wives and children of jihad these were allowed safe
passage out of the besieged village or to arabic has been talking to some of those who left. how many kids you have children. but one day one day where is your husband to kill. me but should apply let me just say that. it's so low the cedar fair to have a did any. damage of it or did michael given it almost doesn't. must get compensated in the.
gym at the moment genocide is my bit of heat. and. i didn't want to. see what i will come to that have been the somebody who's. not the know not the economist that you have you know that impulse and doesn't but it was. on sunday the s.d.f. spokes person tweeted that he expected the battle to be over quote soon the us president donald trump has already proclaimed victory over the self-styled caliphate more than once. we have won a good study says now we've won some time probably next week we will have. one hundred percent of the caliphate as usual president trump is playing fast and loose
with the truth and he's tends to exaggerate things the problem is it's even if it is defeated as a force controlling natural territory it has its origins as a terrorist group training suicide bombers having small so actions and we've seen that continue in iraq for example where there were some horrible bombings of civilians so the danger is that they go back to what they were originally doing and care of these kinds of terrorist attacks which are very difficult to stop. but as well as self-proclaimed interim president. has pledged to return to the country he insists he leaves on monday he left venezuela in late february in defiance of a travel ban imposed by the country's supreme court since then he's been touring latin america to race support u.s. national security advisor john bolton has warned against any attempts to prevent
quiet us return on twitter he said there would be a significant response from washington should his safety be threatened. and a recent interview bolton urge the international community to round on that as well as elected leader. i'd like to see as broad a coalition as we can put together to replace me to replace the whole corrupt regime work in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine this is a country in our hemisphere it's been the objective of american presidents going back to ronald reagan to have a completely democratic hemisphere now the monro doctrine just mentioned by bolton was formulated by president james monroe in the nineteenth century its purpose was to stop any european interference in the affairs of nations in the americas but many interpret the doctrine as a justification for america's own interventions in the region russia's chief diplomat has been blunt about his problem with it. with the since the creation of
the united nations in one thousand nine hundred five international law has been regulated under the auspices of this universal legitimate organization the syrian practices backyards is insulting well according to the russian foreign minister the use of the doctrine is insulting to the regional powers to the countries in latin america and you said that this whole thing should also be concerning to other nations because right now the united states have an ambition change the venezuelan government to oust but have already teased that they have a similar ambition for other countries in the region like cuba or nicaragua now the russian foreign minister also talks about john bolton's statements regarding russia's a john bolton in a recent tweet called ma duro a lawyer for saying that russia basically supplied the venezuelan nation with humanitarian aid sergey lavrov pointed out that russia did supply seven and a half tons of medicine through international organizations to sort all of that is
easily tracked and monitored. career a cub rare associate professor at george mason university says the munroe doctrine has no place in the modern world. they are the fundamental. foundations of democracy and without concern to negotiation by the international community but they are talking about here is america for the americans going back to the money train no each of ference from any other. and the blocs that they create this is very problematic because they can really. because of the fact that we're going to see there are no other option and military intervention and today we're talking about a multi-polar world and i don't really know what would i mean what would that mean if america can be only for americans when you're talking about a world that's more globalized when other countries also have interests in the
americas economic interests very important economic interests. meanwhile one of bolton's team mates in the u.s. and squad is under pressure back home from families of the holocaust survivors have launched a petition calling for the removal of elliott abrams currently the u.s. special envoy to vent as well from the board of the holocaust memorial museum in a letter to the holocaust memorial council and the committee unconscious they accuse abram's of supporting genocidal regimes for decades and the man taking away his seat one of the partition makers and the daughter of a nazi genocide survivor told us why she's against abrams. it's a shame and disgrace that people whose hands are in blood that can be a member of the holocaust memorial council's committee on conscience. abrams has been convicted of withholding evidence from congress over covert funding of nicaraguan rebels in the one nine hundred eighty s. while he was serving for the reagan administration he's also been accused of
covering up massacres and backing brutal regimes in guatemala el salvador and honduras in a car door because of again says abrams portfolio makes him unsuitable as a member of the holocaust memorial council. we want to demonstrate to people who are the advisors of donald trump and his criminal history and that this person this preparing plans to invade venezuela and probably other countries of light in america or even the world we hope that this petition will resonate in an echo in those people who believe that the museum of holocaust is an untouchable topic my mom and the rest of my family were slaughtered by the nazis genocide my father was one of the soldiers who defended us and then he became a partisan and fought against nazis this museum is devoted to genocide of jews and such a criminal person as should be removed from the committee on conscience we've requested a comment from the museum on whether they're planning to take any action in
response to the petition. british prime minister theresa may has arrived in salisbury as the city marks one year since the poisoning of former russian double agent sergei screwball and his daughter yulia twelve months on and the finger is still being pointed at moscow which claims it's being denied answers to even the simplest of questions regarding what happened artist and associate checking the reports. sure you must be tired of hearing about it but let's give credit where credit is due move over brags that chaos this group all saga was the story of twenty teen it had all the workings of a detective bestseller curious enough to grip the media for months on end state sponsored attempted murder poisoned with a nerve agent russian state involvement and probably aided this. makes these ingredients well russian villainy a toxic nerve agent with a decidedly russian name that used to be developed in the soviet era and by
a handful of other countries too but you can ignore that for the purposes of a good story and the spy story writes itself right accusations assumptions leaks a hungry search for any juicy details unraveling for viewers to marvel at on t.v. screens and newspaper front pages the world over here is former double agent screw paul's daughter yulia making an appearance shortly after being discharged from hospital i should just post after twenty days in a coma i woke up to the news that we may have been poisoned i still find it difficult to come up to terms with the fact that both of us were attacked in such a way the accused made an appearance to investigators said their officers from russia's g.r.u. military foreign intel service whose travels around souls very had been meticulously traced by every news organization known to man but the men themselves claim to be well most professionals who wanted to see
a famous spy or. to proceed but across the world is there. any of us aboard. somebody if this were but a whole year has gone by and where is sergei scrip all himself he was discharged from hospital not too long after his daughter and was understood to be alive and well where is he living now what is he up to. and doesn't he have anything at all to say to weigh in on this massive story that he's at the center of to some wanting to know more than the cases tend to mount to information warfare for good journalism or even simple curiosity as many as one hundred thirty eight separate narratives were attributed to outlets like this channel in the aftermath of the poisoning in a new report dubbed weaponize the news sputnik and an array of competing and often contradictory narratives about the event and its own for two months from
explanatory accounts of events on the fourth of march to speculation on the motivations governing the responses of western governments among them the ukase non-disclosure of information seen as suspicious having accused russia of trying to kill a man on its soil and asking it to prove itself innocent before any proper investigation had even began could have at least merited some cooperation with moscow russia offered to help over and over again but that fell on deaf ears the u.k. rushing to blame russia without establishing facts here's the british prime minister just a week after the poisoning while the investigation lasted months the government has concluded that it is highly likely that russia was responsible for the act against . the script and motive apart from it had to be russia motives behind the poisoning are yet to be adequately clarified who benefited from script surviving who would have benefited if he had died and why also if it was russia what was the
point of it all anyway if you have those questions to best keep them to yourself doubting the official narrative as kremlin of you so don't reporting from london and associate with r.t. the u.k. government maintains it was the kremlin that dispatched a hit squad made up of russian military intelligence is. london claims the assassins arrived in cells very shortly before the poisoning happened armed with a highly toxic nerve agent. coming up in the program south africa adopts a plan to fight racism that is a far left politician sparks anger by saying whites should become domestic workers and black households more on that after this short break.
you know world's big partners. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling class is protect themselves. in the final. listen to the one percent. in the middle of the
room. welcome back to the program a national action plan against racism has been approved in south africa more than five hundred race related complaints were received in the country from two thousand and fifteen to two thousand and sixteen apartheid ended more than two decades ago but south africa is still struggling with the problem of racism meanwhile the leader of the country's far left economic freedom fighters party has caused controversy by saying that the white population should become domestic workers and black households. i don't know. blacks to work for whites i want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them how to carry babies on their back they must feel what our parents have
been feeling we're not calling for white people to be killed but for white people to be our domestic workers julius malema was expelled from the african national congress in two thousand and twelve for sowing division within the party he went on to found his economic freedom fighters a political party which falls marxist ideology and which is currently the third largest and both houses of parliament over the years malema has stirred national debate with his views on race and class has been found guilty twice of hate speech and incitement to violence against white people now white people represent nine percent of south africa's population but they own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation had been launched by the government argus debated the situation in south africa including the controversial remarks. his comments still i think do hold certain underlying feelings of negativity towards white people just shows that you're
trapped in the love and admiration of white people he has given bullied pick up power to white but when he speaks in front of people who he knows. best and have to make believe years like this white people he provides it is false militancy that simply provide some kind of force of destruction the general ideology of julius malema in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of opposition we don't wonder that one to obliterate one two and. completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and uplifting and exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses
to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean a good country thirty five thousand white families only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i over nothing i am in fact i think the tenant white people do everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. look at. it is just what i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says you must take the land even these politicians controlled by money who has money why its when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone
in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true white people are somehow deny a list of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect. donald trump freshly returned to the us from failed talks with north korea's kim jong un in vietnam has given a crowd pleaser of a speech at the conservative political action conference some of the biggest cheers came when the president went and his own words off script to take him at the still persistent allegations of collusion with russia. america is winning again. america is respected again. if you say something like russia please if you can get us hillary clinton.
so everybody's having a good time mom laugh and we're all having fun and then that fake c.n.n. and others here russia to go good. moral collusion with russia the collusion delusion. i had a nasty business transaction with robert mueller a number of years ago i said why isn't that mention he wanted the job as f.b.i. director i mean these are things that are out there they know. it was in america first in many cases it was america last we are reversing decades of blunders and betrayals you know i'm totally off script right now. and this is how i got elected by being off script.
how many pieces of parts of president to do us was president trying trying to accomplish today he was also saying things that really like what in your pool scripted his speech one could argue that there are some things that president trump has said that might be care i say peak and controversial you know my one to go there this is trump arrangement but there is a trump putin hyphen russia during syndrome this is a preoccupy. patient a pavlovian obeys this weird kind of a connection it's an obsession with an obsessive compulsive. reaction that they can not let go. that's a wrap up of today's top headlines for now but i'll be back at the top of the hour with more thanks for tuning in.
failure in one knowing what are the lessons to be learned also the stalemate in venezuela and have breaks it out and much much more on this edition of crossfire. my seven minutes doing drugs my nephews was still in drugs my sister just with doing drugs it was like an epidemic of drug abuse america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse he started going after the users in the prison population who are we started treating sick people people who are addicted to these drugs like criminals while i was on the hill. the war on drugs. there are countless numbers of people who are in prison for.
