we should be sure to do. research to. determine what. team russia was banned from participating in the winter games almost two months ago allegations of state sponsored doping the clean athletes are being given the chance to compete as neutrals the i.o.c. is that athletes who polish the screening procedure will receive a personal invitation to take part in some five hundred russian athletes applied to compete the i.o.c. gave provisional approval to three hundred eighty nine most of these didn't compete at the sochi games in twenty fourteen where most of the doping allegations stem from on thursday the committee said it was preparing to approve one hundred sixty nine at leeds. looks at the criteria at the i.o.c. used when screening athletes weeks after russia had come to terms with no team russia in korea anyone with even the slightest interest in sport in this country
was baffled dozens of clean washing star athletes never got their olympic invitations those who'd never been under any suspicion by the sporting federations or even the i.o.c. when they had everyone with a russian passport under the microscope forget about your dream story no explanation that could have been the case but the international olympic committee then let us know the seventeen criteria they used if you don't match at least one or rather if there's even doubt about at least one of them you're out. that could be suspicion that could even be an ongoing procedure that could be many factors which did not lead to the satisfaction of the panel the purpose is to invite clean russian athletes for which this panel was and has not the slightest doubt or suspicion again seventeen boxes to be taked to get the all clear there's all kinds of things on the list from the infamous scratches on sample bottles to that obscure
final segment additional confidential information provided by wada even one of those gets you a red light but the criteria set by the i.o.c. itself might well race suspicion not only in russia take the first two which essentially unite all the rest by the way being sanctioned by the i.o.c. investigators or any anti-doping rule violation in the past the latest group of russian athletes who found out they're not go and were never involved in any of that another box to take issues revealed by the moscow anti-doping lab database well it's the whistleblower and his team who used to be in charge of it. it was created by the to pursue grigori which includes and had several levels of access until the summer of twenty sixteen it was possible to change any of the data there the world anti-doping agency coincidence back in twenty thirteen it cannot serve as
evidence i've mentioned scratches and marks on sample bottles arguably the most solid proof that however was never shown to the public just like the visual results of the bottle flaw experiments back to the water's mysterious additional data that amounts to intelligence extracted from its whistleblower program and other sources many people in russia would like to know who these sources are and why they should be trusted one more segment additional intelligence provided by the international winter federations i'll tell you what the association that unites these federation said the i.o.c. our request to clarify what's going on some federation official seem to have been racking their brains while the president of the international biathlon union was particularly outspoken it is very sad if there is no direct proof of guilt the i.b.u.
tested human numerous occasions and it never tested positive for a banned substance so apparently it sold down to the criteria of choosing the right criteria question to compete in the games will have to follow strict rules according to the latest i.o.c. guidelines they must not participate in any events associated with russia's national symbols such as the flag or the national anthem the same goes for social media with the posting of official symbols the bit in russian athletes are also prohibited from participating in alternative victory ceremonies including any organized by the russian olympic committee russian competitive cando display their national flag in the bedrooms. we discuss the latest surrounding russia's olympics saga with former athletes and champions who condemned the i.o.c. as actions yes i've noticed that on the. couple of almost personal which is
a pretty one in particular. but you must stick to the posts that use the. ears the wish that on the. writer of the pressure to quit sinise and there's a. story you have to pre-clear but the russians are clean and. there's no clean. supposed to be. banned from the olympics but not the whole. the first time the whole nation banned from the olympics and this is this is very pro for the sport for russia but don't put this approach on the olympics and the olympics. the u.k.
has announced that donald trump will be visiting britain in the second half of the year and a trump activists have vowed to stage a huge protest when he arrives but the u.s. president seems unfazed i think a lot of the people in your country like what i stand for they respect what i stand to lose if i don't stand for tough border are going to come to those who don't what do you say to them i don't care i don't care it's just one of those things i don't i don't say anything you know why because i don't care the u.s. latest trip to the u.k. had originally been planned for february this year for the opening of the new u.s. embassy in london however trump counseled the visit citing his dislike of the new building not easy so ali looks at how the u.k. and the u.s. failed to find common ground in two thousand and seventeen and whether this year might be any better the u.k. prime minister to reason may has invited u.s. president donald trump to visit the united kingdom later this year it comes as the
two leaders met at the world economic forum in davos and also comes amid rumors of a breakdown in the relationship between the two countries if you. like he. was. one of the great. thing is. whether or not what is real is that twenty seventeen saw a real strain in the so-called special relationship. this is the only. reason made don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we're doing just fine and perhaps a change of heart by president trump in order to repair that relationship he's indicated that he's willing to apologize for retreating britain first if you're
telling me that a horrible people horrible racist people i would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that i know nothing about their previous announcement of a potential visit by trump of provoked a backlash amongst british politicians i would not wish to issue any british. to speak in the royal gallery. previous report suggests that mr trump himself postponed a potential visit to the u.k. because he didn't want to be greeted by huge protests and attitudes here really changed in recent polls just start more than half fifty six percent of brits don't want president trump to visit if donald trump comes to the u.k. will hold the biggest protest in british history he will be mad by a million of us at times in a citizen's arrest of him for incitement of racial hatred we spoke to one of the anti trump protest organizers it's
a bit disappointing that trump will be visiting and the prime minister traitor may has has agreed to meet with him it's not completely surprising to be honest but it's disappointing you know. he is accountable to the electorate and i think the population of britain has more than made its views clear in the fact that we don't want trump to visit we cannot stand his views he's no racist tweets that he's come out with his racist policies he's going to come here that that's going to happen we can't do anything about that but whilst he's here we know we will ensure that we have around him you know every step he takes in this country we will be there telling. him what we think of him and telling him what we think of his policies should president trump's visit go ahead britain's security agencies could be getting ready for some of the biggest protests to rock this city since the visit of george w. bush in the wake of the iraq war. the tech ashanti terror as strikes in syria reportedly killed at least seven civilians come on that's off the back
side with us. here's what people have been saying about rejected and i was actually just. below the show i go out of my way to you know it's just really packed a punch. yampa is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same. apparently better than nothing to see people you've never heard of love jack tonight president of the world bank take. me seriously send us an e-mail. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express. some want to reach.
out to the right person that's what the four korean people. i'm interested in the why. should. i. welcome back turkish airstrikes in the kurdish held afrin region of northern syria have reportedly killed seven civilians these are the latest pictures from the ground showing the aftermath of the attack is fear the air strikes may have claimed even more lives with people trapped under rubble when it is claimed the turkish aerial bombardments are targeting residential areas. there are no military zones here all of them are civilian areas and civilians were sleeping it was nothing they bombed even though there were no soldiers here we are all
civilians. a lot michel fell about twenty five meters away shrapnel landed up in my hand i want to know why they were shelling civilians turkey is conducting what it describes as an anti terror operation in africa the offensive is supported by several anti syrian government troops the areas they hold a marked here in green but the turkish media has vowed to expand the operation. we're going to continue the olive branch operation until we achieve our goals and then as promised to clear mandate of terrorists after that we will continue i was struggling up to the iraqi border until no terrorists are left. the president says that turkey will push on woods to the city of man and then even further east towards the rocky border and such a may have could potentially threaten u.s. personnel who are stationed in this area they've been assisting the local target
kurds in that anti eisel operation with a pentagon official recently announcing the creation of a thirty thousand strong border security force in the region now this was to be comprised launch something that infuriated ankara the u.s. secretary of state's rights to less than half in from backtracked on the idea saying officials misspoke while antiwar activist we should becca says that u.s. is caught between two allies but we have what appears to be a somewhat intractable contradiction between the u.s. interests in syria and the u.s. interest in nato and so this is something that they're trying to find a way out of but it's very difficult given the fact that it was the united states along with turkey saudi arabia france britain which caused the destabilisation of syria and led to the present circumstances and the united states on the other hand is tied in with the y.p. g. forces inside syria who have been the main fighting forces that the u.s.
has been allied with in the battle against isis but more than that to maintain a u.s. presence inside syria which the u.s. military has been declaring is there for indefinitely. and the british satire the death of stalin has sparked hated debate in russia with some claiming the film distorts history and others saying it's just a comedy russia's culture ministry has bounds the movie the one moscow cinema went ahead with it sold out screening anyway leading to a police raid you post on our reports from the very sentiment oh wow. when asked if this british movie follows the last days and death of joseph stalin as well as the political infighting that ensued so why is it having
a problem here in russia it's not about style in themselves but it is about the timing the showing of this movie was supposed to coincide with the anniversary of the battle of stalingrad it was one of the most decisive moments in the second world war and it's bloodiest battle and since this movie is dark comedy it is showing in a rather satirical way some of the people that made this victory for russia in that war possible so some are saying that this movies is a bit insensitive for the veterans and those who cherish the memories of the great patriotic war many elderly people will perceive it as an offensive mockery of the soviet past the country that conquered fascism and most disgusting the victims of stalinism we don't have censorship we're not afraid of critical assessment of our history. such movies shouldn't even get into russia they shouldn't be discussed just don't let them be shown. i'm ready to come to the cinemas where the film will
be shown to speak to those who but take it the film is a provocation that might add fuel to the fire so the russian ministry of culture decided to revoke the license of the movie when it comes to public opinion well it's played some agree that some may find the timing a bit insensitive others are saying it's art it's not intended to be story accurate and that people probably shouldn't be taking it too seriously it's just a black comedy like distortion in songs or people talking about the future it is brilliant i think such films should be shown on primetime t.v. . this film is from the tragic past protests john and shouldn't see it from the viewpoint of historical accuracy a few months ago a russian movie found itself in. identical situation the film called matilda was telling the story of the last russian tsar nicholas the second and his love affair with a ballerina and the reason that movie faced so much opposition both from the politicians
and from ordinary people in the street is because according to the russian orthodox church nicholas the second is a saint so some details of his personal of his love life could be disturbing to a religious person in russia the outcome of that story was the movie was allowed to be shown and people had a chance to make up their own mind while the fate of the death of stalin remains in limbo because down enough to see. what about the latest headlines of the top of the hour join us. is america as it actually is a bomb over the fantasy is reality and he's doing what you'd expect a seasoned businessman to do cut all the nonsense out of the mix bring jobs back.
prescribe medication is widespread on the u.s. market and a frequent cause of death at the play in my life i just felt like everything with my family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit some site watch all who has made antidepressants so commonly used we were doing what the doctors told us to do we were being responsible and what the real side effects. was is to literally alter what i did was done on a cocktail of lethal drugs. just because something's legal doesn't mean it's safe. to one british man using a button to press the right button and sit over the. exchange so that is why there is some accidents. in this case since there's fear that. we've done
just enough. pat. thank you guys this is the big moves a big there's bugs the war on terror is over where did. we get it according to general mad dogs. this the u.s. national security focus is no longer terrorism which is it blows the most incredible we've finally won since terror is an emotion. like having a war on jealousy and we did it we did it great power competition not terrorism is now the primary focus should be good enough job security i really can't believe it because after all these years the war on terror is over so no johnny tell them what
they won well we went into afghanistan to stop the terrorist behind nine eleven unfortunately almost all the hijackers were from saudi arabia and blood was in pakistan but we destroyed afghanistan anyway winning it all warlords paired. down all we built up the opium production which means we also want to know if you had ever done. ok thanks for our then went into iraq to stop the weapons of mass destruction even though the cia knew there weren't any weapons of mass destruction and we found out there weren't any weapons of mass destruction but we did manage to torture some folks and kill or facilitate the deaths of about a million people and in the process we won the creation of ice and. then with our buddies at nato we went into libya which had the highest level of state standard of
living in any african country before our arrival we certainly put a stop to that breaking the country up we won ongoing civil war now acts under syria which lucky for us everything's gone pretty well it's been fine then why what have you heard him say and we've also backed and facilitated the ongoing genocide in yemen but keep in mind that while the average american worker got nothing out of all of these wars other than a moral bankruptcy and fear the ruling elite one billions of dollars. dick cheney and halliburton alone got thirty nine billion from the iraq war quite the windfall so congratulations this is been your war on terror you're coming from the physical alex jones guy here but i think the war on terror has been about oil money and power. was.
ok you can't just come out and say that to people or else we wouldn't support it we would freak out right if you got to find something else in a say a differently it's kind of like a close talker you can't just go oh are your faces so close to my face what is happening right you have to find new ways for change or eating or something and get them to back up. so as to move rock'n'roll last winter's day oh cars like william kristol paul wolfowitz and richard perle who were dr who were the driving force in pushing for the war in iraq understood if they wanted to sell war americans needed to believe the conflict was about values not interests and these neo cons which are both democrats and republicans now have made billions off these wars and they're the ones funding congress to begin with but general mattis disagrees and this is a national defense trade be good it really is ladies and gentlemen this is an
american strategy it belongs to you you own it we work for you oh really you. do you think yours throws yours ias to work for me i don't think i don't think does the scriptures gene. because post show most americans don't want war and yet we always seem to be at war so it doesn't sound like you work for i said it sounds a lot like you work for the weapons contractors in the oil companies in the war iraq so caught the ball with the news it is inside the framework of that national shit. the strategy specifically where it states that we're to protect the american people the homeland in the american way of life well we're not protecting all of the american people you know not the people in flint sucking on lad not the not the indigenous people fighting against pipelines not the not the prisoners filling our jails arrested for minor drug charges not the soldiers who come back and are
waiting in line at the v.a. now for immigrant families that were destroying in order to support someone who's been here forty years. but there's a salad a handful of rich people we care a lot about. the good life in the story right there both to our responsibility to pass intact to the next generation those freedoms that all of us to enjoy here today those freedoms all of us enjoy what freedoms are alive five i think the only freedom we have left is the freedom to ask for free ranch dressing on our over stuff to break potato cheesecake taco not gives one a lot of precut actually we have here this required some tough choices ladies and gentleman and we made them based upon a fundamental precept namely that america can afford survival just to clarify i'm not talking about survival by mitigating climate change i don't know why i'm
making of southern i think you should use other but but mitigating climate change making our air breathable or water drinkable in our food at all that kind of survival we just don't have the time and money for. your p.c. b.j. mosher guy fall shaped all right puts hair on the chest it does break a big all glass or two or five really good for it. grow between like north korea and iran persist and take an action that threaten regional and even global stability to. america headed by donald trump is the real beacon of the believing we make courtney lawes at four am plastered on ice caves log stable crushing their own people and shredding their own people with dignity and human rights they push their warped views we're pushing their war going to use al the word is this one of those accuse the other guy of the thing you're guilty of kind of tactics is that what exactly yes johnny i'm trying to say i think that the fact
is that we have been operating in also for nine of the last ten years under. and turn you in resolutions that have created an overstretched and under resourced military was my dear i saw that they said i far as i am i have far far far far far far have a trillion dollar box yet the war on terror is cost two hundred fifty billion dollars it dies first sixty years do you have any idea what that money could have done for infant mortality or health care for the poor dog me if i who i had are all right or who are poor they could give a speech before we get out how close are you to those who would threaten america's experiment in democracy they must know if you challenge or it will be your longest and your worst day oh oh anybody who challenges our experiment in democracy what
will wolf them up. right how about the head of trumps to func a voter fraud commission kris kobach who created interstate cross jacks that helped herd over a million people mostly voters of color from the road where ted here's a cross check with some semiautomatic rifle fire are up at the d.n.c. for bring provably corrupt and financially rigging one yet i have to ask you other d.n.c. chair donna brazil and meant it in her book that sounds like screwing with our democracy can we use our missile defense shield to stop the dns state from going up our democracy or me will do more than to listen to other nations ideas we will be willing to be persuaded by them recognizing that all not not that not all good ideas come from the country with the most aircraft carrier yet. but most of the
bad ones do. yes but i got some of you are wondering. there are probably many opinions on whether we should be a war where we should be a war how they make those decisions which start with me having breakfast every week week with which secretary of state television. and we talk to three times a day sometimes we settle all of our issues between he and i and then we walk together into the into the white house meeting i have no fear of folks the general known for drone bombing weddings and the former c.e.o. of exxon mobil has shown all their differences before they present their ideas of which part of the world to explode to get the go ahead from next reality t.v. star. this is like saying don't worry we took different opinions into account when deciding whether to toss the baby into the alligator pond all right we asked the alligator on the rights and the alligator on the left and they both agreed to toss
the baby i was trying to think of how do i put america first and to my mind in alliance framework and we were getting ready to take off you know what happened you all can reciting from memory the stewardess was stand there and she said in the event we lose cabin pressure you know what's coming next every one of you don't you when the master put your own mask on first then help others oh no. he views our relationship with a military idol allies as an adat are you with a toddler on a crashing plane with low oxygen. and let's be honest the only reason for the oxygen mask is so that the passengers stop screaming as the flight goes into the side of a mountain. wow general who has fire as much confidence in our future
is the band playing on the deck of the titanic. in the broad picture our military and our military leadership are a form of thought cancer they convince us infinite war is the only path forward and that peace is never even an option they spend a trillion dollars a year building up that idea and just about zero dollars spent on the other side as the book the new human rights days when ideas persist for a long enough period they often create emotional connections on the personal identity level and institutional establishment on the cultural level which tend to perpetuate a kind of circular reinforcement generally resisting change and adaptation the opposite peace and cooperation is never considered because it is it access central threat to the pentagon the weapons contractors the think tanks and the people filling the seats of congress.
