excuse for the existence of the gigantic cash devouring juggernaut and for keeping on getting new members on board weapon making firms meet customers the biggest ones happen to be from where this man is in charge if you know what i mean though since the soviet union collapsed almost three decades ago even within the alliance there were some doubts about why nato still needs to be out there in research sponsored by the bloc you may have found stuff like this if they too was created in order to act as a deterrent to soviet imperialism and to counter communism and the perceived nuclear threat and what is its relevance today there was a point when a former nato spokesman gave lectures on how the alliance was struggling to find itself when the cold war was over even russia's nukes were no longer taken as a big deal for the first time in almost fifty years the us stands on the verge of attaining nuclear promise

a military alliance. absent the part absent politics absent economic considerations because it's not the job of nato nato a strictly military the united states is trying to drum up the notion that moscow remains that threat in order to justify not only the continued existence of nato but actually to increase spending of their different towards to france this is from history says that it's open to dialogue with nato but claims the alliance hasn't shown willingness moscow also says it's ready to deescalate tensions between russia and bloc members. france is leading the fight against fake news doctoring a lot of battle misinformation however it seems some social media giants are confused over just how to implement it in school reports. ahead of the e.u. elections the french government information service or g.i.s.

a lot of exchanges we have decided to allow ads encouraging electoral participation . but such burns don't always end on a high note the social media platform is known for banning and suspending accounts often without reason including those it considers russian bought. even movie accounts have been suspended for no obvious reason take the pro-life element planned off the raking in six million dollars at the box office on opening weekend it found its twitter account was banned though it was later reinstated mysteriously around one hundred fifty thousand followers were dropped and it doesn't stop that from the left to the right of politics twitter often acts as the judge and the jury so enraged to users that many are leaving the platform altogether the problems become so embarrassing to twitter that it's now going to stop and now saying how

many uses it keeps using twitter may have appeased the french government for now but are the birds so killing overhead charlotte. arty paris. political journalist and commentator elizabeth police that it'll be a huge task for the government to fight fake news the danger in many ways both of them for breaking the rule and for the government also for breaking the law and they decided not to take the risk to be hard to regulate fake news because it's a difficult subject it's got to be tackled because the debate has become much tried and violent with the social media taking up so much space and the cost the need of the debate is pushing everybody told extremism and just something which basically has got to be a stranger into into sort of more rational discourse so i think that it's perfectly understandable that it's not easy to decide the reasons in which you could make mistakes and when was. it was it was

3:17 pm
demean women it actually makes them become human beings and i'm not meaning known unavailable in a ceremony now is human then women who are veiled i'm not saying that this is another issue but inside iran there is a role and there is a lot of good. unless you change the whole system. britain's armed forces minister is facing a backlash after some thought he implied only a single civilian death was caused by seventeen hundred u.k. air strikes in syria and iraq as the rush to clarify his position claiming he was misunderstood it was not our position that there has only been a single civilian casualty as a result of our military action what we are saying is that we only have evidence of what we believe to have been a single civilian casualty according to the british defense ministry of royal air force strikes conducted since two thousand and fourteen more than four thousand islamic state fighters human rights organization list international released
3:18 pm
a damning report earlier in march accusing the u.k. of being in denial of civilian casualties in mosul and rocca. the u.k. is claiming to have carried out massive aerial bombing of densely populated cities with virtually zero civilian casualties this biggest relief and shows just how deeply in denial the movie actually is over its role in the mass bombing of mosul and wrecker. peace campaigner us a whiting says it's impossible to distinguish and i saw fighter from a civilian after an airstrike. let's not forget the ministry of defense actually only trained one civilian had been killed after months and months of claiming none the idea that you can know whether someone is an arsenal fighter or a civilian after a bomb has been dropped on them the idea that you don't have enough boots on the ground for one category of people to be identified but you do for another one i'm afraid this just absolutely stinks of propaganda from our government i don't think
3:19 pm
the figures would change i don't think anything that we've been given about our involvement in syria or afghanistan iraq libya have been to europe because we just don't know we keep rushing into these interventions with no idea about who retire or getting the best thing to do would be to leave the people of syria to have their own destiny in their own hands and for british troops and british planes to come back to britain. the number of people killed in flash floods in the southwest of iran has risen to sixty two the deluge which started two weeks ago has swept away key infrastructure like late organizations say the sanctions are preventing vital help from getting through. through the helicopters we try to move to people from the dangerous area to the safe areas actually be set up the camps and we distribute the tents for the four temporarily sheltering of the people and as well as a distribution of their relief items actually it is

a living basic attempts were affected if they run their course and they have their partner at one hundred ninety one national society that our partner and somehow we receive some candle answers from them and in some cases like jemera we are going to receive relief bullets from generous cross and told to write christian thought if it's just a few others that they announce their readiness to dispatch they're really fighting we have not received any one any any in in our accounts you to the sanctions i can say and so there are a lot of people in our brought that wants to help us and want to donate their money especially iranian people who are living abroad but they cannot use our foreign currency at. the iranian foreign ministry confirmed sanctions were hampering relief efforts. since all the accounts of iran red crescent have been frozen by u.s.
3:21 pm
sanctions no one can send the financial aid from overseas that statement by the iranian foreign minister came on monday the u.s. government though says around only has itself to blame for its failure to cope with the flooding and rather than helping it's currently drafting fresh sanctions. and. these flights once again show the level of the rain. regime mismanagement in planning and emergency preparedness the regime blames outside entities when in fact it is their mismanagement this led to this disaster that even jail environmentalists for attempting to help iran prepare for these very issues.
