5:02 pm
g a jubilant for syrian government has responded to the call of duty and sent military units on the state to deploy along the border and take part in defending the units you're serious theory three and. the turks well see for yourself and korea's response was explosive loaded and delivered in artillery shells but why did . it go on warned that this would happen no one may help the white b.g. he said as for the kurds themselves seize promised to put them in a choke hold in me a days i need to be preparation on the ground takes time in the coming days we'll lay siege to the city what assad wants is obvious to protect syria's sovereignty and reestablish control prevent more of syria from being devastated but here you have two major anti isis coalition partners terrorist and
5:03 pm
aggressor as they call each other turkey in the y.p. g a partner in all but name duking it out beating each other to bloody pulp one might ask where is america the head of the us led anti isis coalition. but why you still here. why do these weapons still arrive america is in the process of creating a terror army on our good do not encroach on our borders do not provoke us we will run out of patience. the destruction of what's going on up in africa right now which is drone of some of the syrian democratic forces they see their fellow kurds afrin under attack so there is cause in at least their attention to shift their let's not forget how it all began with this statement a u.s. declaration that it would build an army of kurds to patrol the turkish border that
5:04 pm
sent into a fit of rage and it was that statement that was used to justify this new war washington backtracked it's now laying low but the damage was done the coalition imploded and it's up to others to stop this. we do not believe that the u.s. will because. the u.s. strategy depends on creating new chaos in the middle east to pursue its interests in this region it is sad washington said the fire that is now consuming its own anti isis coalition and burning africa into the ground the u.s. role has been reduced to diligently expressing its concern worry but not regret middle east analyst joshua landis believes that american support for the kurds has escalated the conflict. and the u.s.
5:05 pm
has been supplying a lot of weaponry to the kurds east of the euphrates when the united states first entered syria and turkey and the united states came up to an agreement that everything west euphrates was turkomans everything east of the euphrates the united states many beige is a sore point but that's still to be decided on but that's the way it's been and the united states has been giving a lot of weapons to the white now it's obviously telling them why peachey do not attack turkey with these weapons because the moment you do that you will justify everything that aired a war that says is going to happen that you're connected with the k.k.k. and so the united states is sitting on the kurds and in essence is telling the y.p. to you have to sacrifice your brothers in a funny way to preserve us out east of the euphrates.
5:06 pm
both some pulls of a medal winning killer from russia have tested positive for the prohibited drug that's according to russian olympic officials alexander christian it has already stated that he's never used banned substances but the seller trying to has more from. with this official confirmation from the russian side we now understand for sure that both doping tests a and b. were positive and this is bad news for the o.a.r. team and for the entire country of course as well russian sports officials have ruled out that there was systemic consumption of dhoni and that alexander crucial need ski could have taken the drug on purpose the man himself also reacted to this by saying i have never taken any banned substances openly stating that
5:07 pm
i have never used prohibited substances or competed unfairly since i started in sports that's why i'm the person most interested to see an investigation as soon as possible the russian olympic committee is starting a comprehensive investigation of how the pills may have ended up in alexander crucial need ski's body and some of the other key points that i should bring up here are that the concentration of mill donia in the samples suggests single use plus all the tests that crucial need ski went through before the games as many as ten and total were negative so that means that so far there is no proof of systemic use we have already heard suggestions about this unusual case that someone could have spiked alexander's food or drinks and the russian curling federation have said that they are opening a separate probe into these specific claims and for that they have already. mandate
5:08 pm
c.c.t.v. footage of the places where alexander trained and state other curlers including the russian female team coach have told us that there is a possibility of that kind of sabotage but there was reason you would miss them you don't need to be a secret agent to give athletes of both will with any kind of banned substance that totally unprotected just put it in the hotel room it's easy if you can see the bottle and it's like locked and then it can open it you can see it was locked he open it and drink it and as long as you keep an eye on the bottle that's fine if you just like to turn around for a second so he has this bottle curling is a peculiar sport where accuracy and intellect perhaps weigh the most important role so in a sense it may be compared to sports like poor perhaps nuker or bowling and experts in the sport have also told us that they can't understand how mole dony him could
5:09 pm
work and their case with its effects such as enhancing and durrance and helping athletes recover i don't really understand what what it would be approved for what it would improve you and your game kind of things to apply i don't understand what it will do for you. i think it is unlikely that a sportsman of such a level as alexander the crucial need ski he used well done him on purpose during the olympics all sportsmen knew they would be checked moreover there is no point in taking a single dose to have an effect and alexander crucial needs keys case the next stage is the hearings at the court of arbitration for sport which is temporarily housed here and yung chang they start on thursday february twenty second. we also heard on the issue from the press secretary for the russian a limpid committee who thinks that given how closely russian athletes have been monitored in pyongyang taking
5:10 pm
a banned substance makes absolutely no sense. and those who chose first of all will have to sort out exactly what happened a thorough investigation should be conducted on the matter because this instead raises a lot of concerns which one hardly ever sees doping in curling it's not needed there every athlete doctor or sports official will tell you that secondly banned substances were talking about doing which was found in alexander's blood doctors are found that the man discovered means the muldoon was taken once that has no impact on performance there was absolutely no sense in knowingly taken this substance moreover those two curlers have passed over. in the past two years alone even when they were preparing for their lympics and they've never ever had any doping violations considering how close the russian athletes are being watched at this lympics taking a banned substance two weeks before the event is just sport so it was side. and sociologist ellis cashmore says it's hard to imagine why
5:11 pm
a killer would want to use mel don't you and mel don't e m of course is an unusual drug and no one is quite sure what its purpose is i mean it's a stand simply an over the counter drug although it can be prescribed also for heart conditions and it's ments we can't say for sure but it's meant to give advantages in terms of stamina to the taken as we've just heard curling isn't a stamina dominated sport it's a sport where you need a call haired judgment and a steady hand and you can't see any obvious advantages that would be conferred by madone i'm on a curler. over to japan now where recently discovered government documents of shed light on the practice of forced sterilization which affected thousands of people with mental and physical health issues the procedure was carried out under the now scrapped eugenic protection law was adopted after the end
5:12 pm
of world war two and remained in force and until nine hundred ninety six it permitted sterilization to quote preserve the purity of the japanese race according to some estimates up to twenty five thousand people in total were subjected to the procedure the newly revealed records deal with fewer than three thousand of those victims some of whom are now taking legal action r.t. spoke with one of them. has a hard time going through middle school. one of the teachers took me as a casting and his house that i was constantly be used by his wife i never got enough never got paid and never had the chance to see the official papers to back my diagnosis either she hated me.
5:13 pm
my teacher took me for a magical chacon and i was taken to hospital he didn't explain anything. when i woke up i was there stephen they told me not to drink water at school but i remember. at the time my parents told me that i was operated on and now i cannot have a baby my father didn't agree to the religion it was forced to sign documents by legislature and welfare from science. i had many chances to get married when i was young but tough to the operation i felt period i married and divorced and married again my husband left me when i told him about the operation. of the committee further recommends that the state party adopt specific measures aimed at providing all victims of forced sterilizations with assistance to access legal remedies and provide them with compensation and rehabilitative services.

5:15 pm
to ask them to bring their confessions to light and open up the issue now that we're discovering the truth we need to make those responsible apologize their actions and make sure the victims get compensation it's clear now that the main problem here is the japanese government continuing to ignore the problem and advice from the un. and japan is not the only country that has in the past used for sterilization programs inspired by eugenics among notable examples are germany during nazi rule and sweden both those countries of since offered compensation to victims. afghan citizens of submitted more than a million statements to the international criminal court alleging that they were victims of war crimes court began collecting testimonies in november of last year the statements describe alleged atrocities perpetrated by the taliban and also the afghan army and american forces we spoke to who lost fifty two members of his family in the conflict in fact there are different kind of war crimes happen in
