3:02 pm
less than two kilometers away a stronghold of these islamic state in iraq and syria fighters from isis or as they're called in arabic have taken over the neighboring village these kurdish soldiers known as the peshmerga all are the only defense that's keeping the insurgents from marching north. so this whole area. isis fighters with snipers in the militant offensive sweeping across a rock is redrawing the country's borders but so too are the kurds as iraqi forces crumbled in the wake of that the harvest onslaught kurdish soldiers moved in to fill the void nearly doubling their territory in the process in just a matter of hours the kurds seized militarily what they failed to secure politically for decades the oil rich province of cure cook and its main city as part of the cost. of the fishmongers controlling the code.

3:05 pm
work with the government in baghdad i think that by they listen politely to to secretary kerry i think they have their own interests in mind and unless something miraculous happens in the parliament without moloch you stand on board i think this split enough iraq is going to be inevitable the only thing that is working in anybody's favor is that isis has the has a military capability but the question is will they be able to govern all that territory they're taking over and already they're fighting from within some of the units and some of the other islamist groups and even x. about this that they that joined them temporarily to take the territory over but now there's actually been gunfire and and opposition each which will want their own little chunk in each little piece it's a mess nigeria and so with stony silence on the weekend leaks documents that detail what nature is outgoing chief traded to you landed the job in the for is pleased

a look here and a long claim that raj t.v. was a mouthpiece for the kurdistan workers party which fights for the rights of a kurdish minority and is considered a terrorist organization in turkey and the west not the channel started broadcasting in two thousand and four and in two thousand and ten it was officially accused in denmark of promoting terrorist activities and this year the channels license was finally revoked we spoke to their lawyer we have a special committee or service should be dead bark which would issue the certificates the turks turkish government had at three different occasions complained to this committee each try they concluded that the coverage was just like the coverage you would far at the big day just use television stations so we thought that also the courts. would respect the freedom of expression the freedom of press the freedom of
3:20 pm
information but it did occur. now we asked nato to comment on the leaks about the deal to appoint dress misson the press office told us to talk to danish authorities insisting that the courts were fully independent however journalist lawyer and former m.p. beyond questions their claim. there were some conflicts of political character between. turkey. states. because a very broad stroke they describe it is to become the six zero there was a big pressure from u.s. forces or towards is to seem to. be creative better how to a diet how to prove that the rustle of a should was probably. a terrorist ready until they died because there was

3:23 pm
is taking drastic measures to plug holes and that means cutting water this is one of those houses that has had its water shut off and you can tell that because the detroit water and sewer department went ahead and painted on the porch that water cut time now they've been doing this more and more frequently to abandoned houses and they are they say going after abandoned houses first in order to kind of avoid it wasting water for houses that people simply don't live in however more often these days the house is facing shut off have residents living inside this is due detroit water brigade headquarters groups like the way fun in the detroit water brigade are working with residents to get on the water they need in the short term and the funding in the long term to sustain themselves we have donations the water that people have say we also have water filtration devices as well as aqua tablets so that people could you know access to clean drinking water these groups are now

3:27 pm
a classic mainstream media talking point about russian aggression and russian imperialism which gets repeated constantly in fact so often that is not even question but if you stop to think about it if you were trapped in a region at war and you were going to escape odd what where would you go into the heart of the aggressors in imperialists no you go in the direct opposite direction interestingly enough in both this conflict and the two thousand and eight war in georgia the overwhelming majority of refugees flee towards russia excluding some sort of bizarre stockholm syndrome it seems that for people in break we republics in ukraine and georgia russia is a safe haven they often say that people vote with their feet and in the case of the most recent wars in european history it is clear whose feet are voting for whom and no mainstream media talking points can deny that but that's just my opinion. i don't think the united states for ousting in a coach neither did russia i think fine for taking control of our crimea and yet we
