of the will of developments are likely to inflame tensions between the 2 neighbors belgrade has warned it will react swiftly if serbs in kosovo are threatened or. serbia lost control over kosovo after a nato intervention in 1099 and refuses to recognize its 2008 declaration of independence well let's dig a little bit deeper into the details nod quarter joins me in the studio with more on what we know hi don so essentially i've got an ongoing as far as i understand police security operation in cost of poland that's been going on for a number of hours yeah absolutely these tensions with serbia between serbia and kosovo began with this special police operation deployed into actually a serb majority area of northern coast of all the serbian president alexander of which has put the military on full alert as you said and he says that 23 people have been arrested mostly serbs and bosniaks while the cost of all authorities put
that number at 30 people one serbian official. says the raid was aimed at intimidating serbs in the region but cost of a prime minister. deny said it was part of an anti smuggling and organized crime campaign and the area kosovo further urged ethnic serbs to support the police saying that the anti crime situation is the road to integration with western countries and nato urged all parties to remain calm they said they took kosovo side and the issue with see what they said the police operation was conducted over the whole 2 or 3 of kosovo or not just to move differently was an aim bits it was aimed at fighting against crime and corruption. this also spreads particularly un officials being arrested in the midst of this do we know much about that yeah actually the u.n. released a statement about it they said that 2 employees from the u.n. mission to kosovo were arrested and afterwards hospitalized they also the mission
also threatened legal ramifications if any harm any further harm is to be done to their employees any homes united nations stuff will be met with the highest degree of diplomatic and international legal responses partly one of them were russian yeah absolutely the russian embassy in belgrade became aware of it president bush said that at their parliament earlier today that one of them was russian and that he was arrested and beaten actually because of authorities are claiming that it's because he was resisting law enforcement and the russian foreign ministry of course wasn't very happy about the arrest of their citizen at any rate and released a statement calling for their for his immediate release and they called the move a blatant provocation is the employee had diplomatic immunity he wasn't supposed to be arrested under such circumstances and they demanded his immediate release murray as a hot of the spokeswoman of the foreign ministry said that this is only going to lead
to further escalation of tensions in the region. it is obvious to such a provocative behavior by kosovo is the result of u.s. and e.u. long term policies of indulgence tour of them very leaders they're used to being excused everything such steps lead to the ask a lesion of the ethnic tensions and makes efforts of the international community for the post conflict regulation completely useless. there are several hours ago now actually we just received word that that russian employee at the u.n. mission was released. will know. the full amount of the republic. though it just before you go give
us a little bit of background in this because i did allude to it that there is a longstanding alamo city in this region is in there yeah that's right ethnic tensions in the region were seriously worsened after nato was bombing of yugoslavia in 1909 and the separatist insurgency came to power in kosovo afterwards and declared independence in 2008 now to this day serbians government does not recognize that declaration and they considered to nato intervention to be against international law ok you know don thanks for various right up there not so many facets of this story i know you became a close eye in a double quarter r.t. correspondent. for rights to another of our stories making headlines a double trump is encouraging ship to increase its military capability the u.s. president who's in tokyo so he's japan could help the u.s. defend against threats in the asia pacific region quote be the americas vice president mike pence touched on those perceived threats to during
a speech at the elite military academy west point to leave a tranquil scope the story. you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life if you didn't notice the words in the background that was mr vice president talking to the graduates of a top class u.s. military academy and that wasn't it how do you like this degree of certainty it is a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life. you will lead soldiers in combat. you will have so what is the 2nd most important official in the country trying to make clear by that the good old boots on the ground will certainly be on the way to quite a few different places after all come on no one in this world would dare to send an army against america to put up a fight there nobody will realistically send soldiers to attack the superpower of
all superpowers and so men and women of west point no matter where you're deployed . you will be the vanguard of freedom here they are the future of basters of freedom you look at their faces and frankly it doesn't seem they're in raptures over what mr pence is saying but let's hear where in the world we might expect to see a boost in freedom in the days to come some of you will join the fight against radical islamic terrorists in afghanistan. and iraq oh these are familiar places where the pro says so to say began a while ago soon it will be 20 years any more destinations some of you will join the fight in europe where an aggressive russia seeks to redraw international boundaries by force probably in this area it's a bit of an exaggeration that the graduates will find themselves on a battlefield taking part in nato as big war games there that's more like it.
i i. well at least for now it's only been in the form of drills for now and finally the most curious part and some of you may even be called upon to serve. in this hemisphere it won't be rocket science for you to figure out where the boots on the ground money to be marching off to next in the western hemisphere then then as you well all wear for the white house it's a classic all options are on the table plus we heard from the opposition big guy there. he wouldn't mind at all. donald trump is also going head to head with the u.s. intelligence services he is demanding that they declassified the origins of the
mole or investigation which looked into alleged collusion with russian special counsel's 2 year probe just to remind you found no evidence of criminal conspiracy between the trump campaign russian government during the 26000 presidential election well our senior correspondent guys the it has been looking into how the mass media has shifted its stance on whether the u.s. president can question the activity of the intelligence services or not. the thing with spies with all this secrets and power and egos is that it really seems to goo to their heads and honestly how can you blame them they are literally beyond public scrutiny and you wouldn't tries to stick their nose in you just stamp everything that's classified and loudly denounce them as unpatriotic see it as a very very serious and outrageous move on the part of mr trump once again trampling
upon the statutory authorities of the director of national intelligence and the heads of the independent intelligence agencies how dead trump what true american would ever question why they're being wiretapped and spied upon good thing america has m.s.m. be she true patriots. mr brennan full time so he can vent his frustrations for everyone to hear of course to do that m.s.n. b.c. had to sacrifice their principles and integrity president obama said today he still stands by his cia chief john brennan even though it turns out the cia was indeed spying on the senate and some senators are calling for brennan to be fired now just to be clear that was in 2014 when they weren't on the same side and spying on everyone your own elected leaders included was considered dubious these is
2019 and the word spying is now considered politically incorrect it offends people whose people who secretly eavesdrop and record and film everyone agents the good guys. a talking point from the president and those around him telling congress buying dinner on the trump campaign it's a loaded word aston. the implications of using that word has now gone trump's favorite new word and the trump media's favorite new word. senate intelligence chair dianne feinstein accuse brennan cia of secretly tracking the senate's investigation into one of the worst abuses in recent cia history and now factor in this huge new scandal the fact that brennan cia was spying on members of congress the cia was spying on the senate intelligence committee basically busting into their computers
but i give m s n b c too much credit or others to washington post gave brennan his own column where he publishes pieces with nubile noble titles i will speak out until integrity returns to the white house promises well done washington post it takes courage to set aside what you believe in to go back on your word but again it's been 5 years who remembers things like that right the guardian same thing. cia director john brennan lied to you on to the senate fired him. why is donald trump attacking the u.s. intelligence community surprisingly brandon isn't working for the guardian yet one by one though the pundits and the seeing wrong from right the question is are they
going to demand brennan's resignation or accountability within the cia patriotic answer by the way is no holding the cia accountable would be sure to put a secret agents do top secret stuff and drink martinis and add things and carry out special secret missions i didn't see anything improper on lawful and yes james clapper brennan's former boss is now a c.n.n. employee. we are tell you this every true american can be proud of their a brave brave people watch over you and record everything you do or say they and night whether you wanted or not and if times or politics change in 5 years no one will remember it ever happened. rocco's d f well it's not only stance on the activity of u.s.
intelligence services under scrutiny in the media but also his quotes or his as the case may be a fake quote attributed to the president else gone viral social media and some are now using it as a prime example of false news tells brit. president tom tom. is smarter and would make a by the president and sleepy joe biden. don't shrug your shoulders to this insanity the president of united states praising a cruel dictator who violates human rights 3 nuclear attacks or process his people
and kills political opponents is not freaking normal does this window trust became our president was it when he kowtow to putin and house thank you. please. ian bremmer now admits that he made up a completely ludicrous court attributing it to me this is what's going on in the age of fake news people think they can say anything and get away with it really the libel motion be changed the whole fake news media recounts or. even spreading misinformation thinking that has proven something he's proven that he's not a reliable source of information and should not have the trust of the down even as a needle more of the news making headlines this tuesday after this.
you know world of big partisan. and conspiracy it's time to wait to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream 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. i mean we were at camp rounds of america i think it's called there's like a chain of these campgrounds and trailer parks across america so yeah these types of organizations would be rolled out into a bigger rural up so you have economies of scale you now have lots and lots of trailer parks all socialize reporting to one corporate behavior on wall street and
there extracting nickels and dimes and a lot of people are some. teachers in finland express concern over muslim students fasting during the holy month of ramadan they claim it affects the students' concentration during classes. ramadan is noticeable due increasing sidey never d. school life we cannot 1st feature nor give injections with nutrients we can do is advise parents not to force children to fast fasting for young children can be successful at home not at school without food well this year ahead of ramadan authorities in a southern finnish city called on schools not to observe the fast and some
institutions have reportedly been offering water and extended breaks to muslim students well holy month of ramadan which ends on monday is the most secret in muslim calendar people abstain from food and drink from sunrise until sunset it's considered to be a month of purification on the 4th kapler of islam meanwhile politicians in germany including the health minister of calling for a more come possible form of islam to be promoted to preserve european traditions and culture. instead of tolerating symbols of a reactionary missal journalistic form of islam we must promote the development of a european islam which shares our values in order to preserve our free european way of life or when we discussed this earlier the crux of the ra it really came down to the line between 5th flexibility. the central principles of the stomach faith are non-negotiable in this same where the jewish community want to be told what they
can or cannot believe and i think that's a really dangerous precedent is being crossed your of this war on islam which is about demonizing and taking away the rights of muslims to practice their faith finished. sensibly do run the best education system in the world with their liberal nordic mind decided that they wanted to help muslim kids out a little bit and are trying to inject a little bit of liberalism and a little bit of tolerance into people who otherwise should know better there is so called liberal societies like the scandinavian countries who talk about liberalism who talk of individual freedom of speech and if you do a choice but in reality you want to restrict that for one section of society enough and that's deeply wrong if you go to tampa and you meet the finnish muslims and my kids are half inish you will see that they have very accustomed very tribal eyes come from a certain culture and tradition they're not used to having open dialogue integration liberal tolerant values which came from the islamic traditions to europe in the 1st
place so muslims do need to change they need to get back to a key understanding of what islam is what islam isn't and we need to get our house in order because muslims have got problems to deal with there is a wider discussion to be had you know the muslims are very passionate. and we've got to ensure that we educate our fellow citizens who are not was about the benefits but also about the challenges of look i think whether it's the issue of fasting whether receive the headscarf whether it's the any other range of issues when we're talking about how islam co-exists a lot of debate a lot of pressure on how do muslims whether they assimilate or whether they integrate the key point here is about tolerance it's about respect and for muslims it's about returning to the prophetic way which is one of tolerance to respect multi-faith coexistence and i can raise an. the islam you see today i'm not this are saying people should go to hard manichean issue but we need to learn the values of tolerance and liberalism back from the europeans who took it from us in the 1st
place and the islam that people are trying to move back to north sure that's the way it should be. after european elections left the hosts of brussels fragmented e.u. leaders are in the belgian capital for talks and who will lead the bloc forward centrist . parties were dealt a bloody nose in this year's parliamentary vote many countries across a bloc seeing right wing and the greens liberal factions as well topped the polls and the charlotte reports there was no shortage of political drama in the run up either. for months pundits have been predicting a rise in anti establishment parties ahead of the e.u. elections after once they were right but across the bloc in the weeks leading up to the vote panic was setting in and let's be clear that panic wasnt without ground scandals emerged all reemerged in a timely fashion. take malkin look 10
days before fronts headed to the polls each top court ordered her to pay back 300000 euros to the european parliament this followed a case in which the national rally had been accused of paying an aide incorrectly but the timing felt off it was almost as if it was a way to tell voters that her party just couldn't be trusted that came hot on the heels of accusations that former trump strategist steve bannon was actually the one pulling all the pens strings yet the public didn't seem to care and the national rally still talked the polls here in france other scandals that were rife in the media included one russians well at least the alleged russians no shock there but of course not a single troll in sight. it was of course if. the party which was in coalition. people's party found itself
under the spotlight not for its potentially dubious policies but for a good old cash influence gambit. he says there was even an attempt to drag le pen's name into the thick gate as it became known a few months ago marine le pen was singing the praises of austrian vice chancellor heinz christian straka saying how formidable he was struck as being forced to resign we find out why he was trying to sell his services to foreign forces behind this nationalist movement is a submission to foreign forces despite this the f p o still managed to pick up just over 17 percent of the vote in austria.
there was also of course the elections very own 2 moment one swedish democrats candidate accused the other of sexual harassment and even though this scandal washed away it didn't hamper the anti immigration party's performance they increased their share of the vote to more than 50 percent. and despite merkel. warning the populous parties wanted to destroy europe we are haring to deal with populist movements that in many areas are contemptuous of our values and want to destroy the europe of the values we represent we have to stand up to this these parties significantly increase their representation in many parts of the e.u. sex money the long arm of washington reaching for controlling europe nothing seemed to put voters off seeking something new what is clear from the results of these
elections is that the old guard could no longer count on the masses to support them in blind faith what europeans want is something different it seems a godless want that is show that people ski auti paris i also spoke to political commentator john y. 2 believes that europe centrist bloc had it coming with voter frustration finally boiling over. the global economic crash into terms of meet centrism is fail to learn any lessons and then have events nor move towards any kind of reform whatsoever in the spawns to the rise of the skepticism from the right as a means stream political current where before it's always been on the margins and on what trend is no flash in a pan and this 3 european union is going to be nigh you know what can people across europe have been suffering monumental despair and late of this
economic crash and the ensuing austerity programs that have been implemented across europe. ok we're crossing the london the kaiser report crew in moments they say they're standing by to stay close for that and then i'll be here with all your latest global news updates. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the hope of all different clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective and i'm used to surprising us all when not if you think. i'm going to talk about football not the or else you just think i was going to go.
by the way what is that that's like here. facebook and google started with a great idea and great ideals unfortunately it was also a very dark so. they are constructing a profile of you and that profile is real it's detailed and it never goes away turns out that google is manipulating your opinions from the very 1st character that you type into the search bar it will always favor one dog food over another one comparative shopping service over another and one candidate over another they can suppress certain types of results deiced on what they think you should be see if they have this kind of power then democracy is an illusion the free and fair election doesn't exist for the more growth we give them the sooner we are all.
guys are this is the kaiser report this is stacy this is stacy harbor and you know where continue in the 2nd half with yet another interview with dan collins he is the head researcher heisenberg capital and he lived in china for 20 years so it's really great information about china what's going on there you know there is one story they keep on doing the rounds these days and that's the rare earth elements you know there are what are the 17 of these elements and they're actually not all that rare but 8090 percent of them are produced by china simply because the the process of processing these rare earths out of the dirt is really environmentally unsound very toxic so the u.s.
used to produce the most rare earth elements from a single mine in california a mountain pass but that stops in the late ninety's seventy's early eighty's when china was willing to become the great polluter of earth and take on that responsibility just so you know when you hear these stories about rare earth elements that they're actually quite abundant just by the name to think of the leeching yes as is the process to extract that it is a veyron mostly horrible yeah the acid leaching you have to do it like a 100 times you have to keep on doing it over and over like you know you can compare it to fracking but at least that suddenly going through once or twice you know these toxic chemicals going through your water supply but you know it trump i wanted to just point out i was very trying to compete with china at what we're doing is just basically doing a race to the bottom here is the headline e.p.a. plans to get 1000.
