can't really strike world in target these key military institutions as well as very secure security areas in kabul remains a serious source of concern for people living here in kabul today's attack. anyone for the afghan national security forces remember they were killed not on the front line somewhere in some of the more district or in the province where this is every day of fighting i think that alone tells you that cities including kabul is becoming another. front in the afghan government just continues to struggle to prevent these militants from carrying out these attacks. the country seen a wave of deadly terrorist attacks of late with three of them in just the past ten days.
and you. know following the recent string of violence both president trump and the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan john nicholson said washington will spare no effort to defeat the insurgents and bring peace to the region the taliban responded threatening more attacks retaliation to what it called a policy of aggression. the us has considerably stepped up its campaign in the country over the past year twenty seventeen washington dropped more than four thousand bombs on afghanistan between august and december last year the u.s. carried out as many airstrikes as it did in the previous two years combined security and political analyst mushtaq are again believes that even though military action is important in the fight against extremists this alone will not bring peace
to afghanistan. a military offensive is always needed because you have to keep the militant groups at bay from the main cities and from or from taking over the country and different provinces in different parts of the country but considering it as the sole response to the current situation or the only way to resolve the one conflict will be a wrong understanding because at the end of that the end of conflict needs a political settlement and dialogue and that is where the afghan government has tried to complement the american strategy which is mainly focused on fighting the militants or using the military might. and it turns out you don't necessarily have to be a spy to uncover secret military facilities around the world one australian student was able to do just by looking at a global map that shows where people exercise the most trying to explain how fit the strike is and i reckon major security concerns for military forces. did you
know now anyone who's got an internet browser can locate even the most secret army bases around the world say journalists thanks to these little things so how come people are saying fitness trackers could have become the soldier's worst enemy look at this global heat map by a g.p.s. tracking company wherever it gets bright are the areas of the stronger apps most active use some places seem totally black like of ghana's stand for instance but we know there are american soldiers in parts of it zoom in tot all the little bright dots is where sam must hang out or to be more precise exercise it was a twenty year old student who first noticed how easy it was to find the u.s. bases this particular track looks like it logs or break into jogging route a shouldn't be able to establish any pattern of life from this far away so that's
a real threat which the pentagon's admitted while only a few years ago they were happy to distribute thousands of fit bits among staff by the way there must be a number of temporary or even permanent u.s. bases that we don't know about journalists have zoomed in on areas around mosul and iraq and roc-a in syria we're told uncle sam is there to train and assist since the rest of iraq and syria are pretty much all black perhaps locals don't really have many of these devices so it's fair to assume that the bright spots are where americans train others and train themselves another journalist remembered this article and scrawled all the way to the capital of somalia some heavy jargon activity on the beach around to it looks like the reported cia annex at mogadishu no one can say for sure all of this is correct but the. cern is
out there u.s. troops security issues aside i was going to show you the careers how's that for a contrast but even in pyongyang there are a couple of bright zigzags could it be mr kim enjoying a bit of western technology well i bet he'll never tell us. swedish retail giant h. and m. has recalled a series of children's socks after complaints the pattern on them resemble the word alarm in arabic h. and m. has apologized claiming this was an intentional but the clothing giant's been making plenty of headlines of late just a few weeks ago it was accused of racism after its catalog featured a black child wearing a hoodie with the words coolest monkey in the jungle the child's mother though rejected claims that that was racist the new controversy over the sox plenty of reaction online this is ridiculous the next will be that they forbid the small w.
and them people have choices if you don't like them then don't buy them getting a little tired of saying you can't make this stuff up. and things that cause offense is the latest topic of artie's new online project in case you missed it with polly boy you can follow her page on twitter. case you missed it one of the great things about life in twenty eighteen is that you're free to be offended by anything. it's called confusing recently people have been offended by history literature being a man being a woman meat pro-immigration anti immigration the list is endless because it's actually hard to tell is our guide to being offended in the modern world if i'm sure as a human your offended twitter will always let you know what you're offended about if only one person out of one hundred is offended you need to pretend that you are offended to she signaling will cover you every time there is no time limit
shakespeare was writing four hundred years ago and still some of the one dickens at cambridge university had to be warned about the distressing sleeve and friends is too much for some millennial zeal to choose an italian american a guy with a transvestite dad who missed wigan and even throwing in a lesbian couple wasn't diverse enough apparently not to use always offensive nineteenth century imperialist sessile words students at oxford university wanted his small barely noticeable start to go on why because he was bad one hundred fifty years ago who wasn't. there and so are these chances my grandfather is david possible weinstein's situation is that your liberty immigrant and christ the redeemer possibly offensive to jews and muslims the little guy being in the fountain naked it's time to act what is great is they're all places where
everyone's mind can rest in peace these are the old rules based says these are places where freedom of thought speech and expression are going on hold in case anyone should have their feelings. american right. while the united states continues to hit russian energy firms with sanctions it turns out the russian gas will soon be heating american homes this is after a french cargo ship loaded with liquefied natural gas from siberia docked in boston this winter has been far colder on average than the east coast of the u.s. is accustomed to leading to a much greater demand for heating and for gas and the tanker in our video here unloading in america it's owned by the french company angie which says that it bought the cargo because of the current spike in demand the ship made a delivery in the u.k. before sailing on to the u.s. and is thought to be the first shipment of russian liquefied natural gas or l.n.g.
to the u.s. a second tanker there originating from russia is expected to dock on the east coast in mid february. as for the fuel itself it was produced by your model l.n.g. of which the russian company nova tech has a controlling interest both are currently subject to u.s. sanctions though but russian oil and gas shipments are not french and chinese companies hold forty nine point nine percent of shares in your model l.n.g. technically the cargo is not subject to sanctions as long as it's bought and delivered by a third party that's not russian wm alanson he's a former british diplomat and author used the word hypocrisy to describe the situation here. the more effective these sanctions are the paradoxes the more they are likely to strengthen the russian economy which has to become more independent and self-sufficient than it is even more effect that is likely to have . is that it's helping the russians and the chinese to move away from the dollar in
that sense. is slightly suicidal thus it is important to get round the sanctions as hypocrisy or the presentation yes we've got sanctions but then a french company a clever french company makes a profit by buying. liquefied gas at a certain moment and by the way one very important final point is another excuse for these for these sanctions of course is the. alleged meddling in the us elections i've never seen such hypocrisy from the arch medlar of the last century which is the united states which is meddled not only meddled in foreign elections but actually placed government cynically. the syrian war is not only about the fight against islamic state it's also about the political struggle between the opposition and the government now damascus representatives and opposition groups are gathering in the russian city of sochi for a new round of peace talks. has been previewing the event. minutes after
landing in syria. we being diverted to beirut look at the ballasts said. they're everywhere the entire city seems to be lost in the peace for the people of syria five hundred ten journalists were registered for the sochi peace conference in just four days representatives from seventy eight different channels as well as dozens and dozens of different news agencies most of them foreigners these army of journalists covering this event. only by the number of delegates one thousand six hundred delegates. to take part in these talks syrian politicians and opposition reconciled rebels and active ones commanders and thousands of men
christians muslims need faiths and denominations aiming for peace. the hard work putting the finishing touches in place they even have special prayer rooms for both muslims and christians this is a new format no middle man has these a direct talks face to face the aim here isn't to replace other platforms like the geneva peace process it is to supplement them to get the ruling say. everyone's tired of this war. is about letting people admit it. was such a peace talks get underway the reconstruction of syria city of aleppo continues. the holiest places in islam with badly affected by the syrian wall was built between the thirteenth centuries but was damaged in clashes in twenty thirteen.
minaret was brought down by shelling of the entire complex is riddled with bullet holes or the most ancient mosques on the planet is located in aleppo old city which is a unesco world heritage site as much as sixty percent of it was severely damaged some thirty percent completely destroyed by the war. israel and poland have agreed to hold talks over a controversial new law being proposed that would make it illegal to suggest that polish people bore anyone sponsibility for nazi crimes during the holocaust she would look for last night to express my strong opposition to the law passed in the polish parliament last friday and i'm sure that all ministers would agree regarding the holocaust that befell our people on polish soil the law is due to go through two more stages before it's finally adopted i expressed our clear position that it must be changed we will not accept any attempt whatsoever to rewrite history
israel's foreign ministry has already some polish envoy to express the country's anger at the bill the proposed law would forbid linking the polish nation to nazi crimes moreover anyone using phrases such as polish death camps could face up to three years in jail or three million jews lived in poland before the second world war most of them were killed during the conflict the concentration camp auschwitz birkenau which was built in poland during the nazi occupation has become one of the defining symbols of the holocaust was there alone that around one million jews were killed the chief rabbi of moscow pinchers goldsmith believes that the issue has been initiated by nationalist parties. in israel nobody is arguing that. the death camps were were created by the germans of done by the nazis nobody argues that what they argue about is saying that poland to saying none of the polish
people had any responsibility or collaborated with the germans with the nazis during the war here is really the jews and specialists of virus have a problem because we know of many stories of survivors from the warsaw ghetto living together going into the wards and being killed by polish partisans maybe it's. part of this new nationalist ideology in poland the nationalist party. in power and i think that's part of the nationalist agenda there's a far right groups all over europe it is a problem i'm here to oversee a conference all these things are being discussed over here. currencies are gaining ever more attention including among top computer specialists on these mega francis santiago attended a cryptocurrency conference and caught up with leading antivirus developer john mcafee. today crypto is unique. crypto is empowering. crypto is on the verge of
a global financial revolution could it was a direct challenge that a world banking system allowing you to be the bank and make the money win or lose in the end crypto is bound to lead the world into the future. union now it's time to take a swim at the coins bank asian block chain crews. welcome at a coin bank who kept blotching conference we're about to get acquainted with over a thousand different disciplines from fifty different countries including a hundred russian i.c.a.o. some of the hottest new stuff in the world a block chain lets go. events like this allow you to mix and mingle with some of the top talent in the block chain industry one of the speakers happen to be a man who is considered by some as the block chain guru john mcafee what are some of the. criteria that you would suggest to look for in a good i.c.a.o.
. first and foremost this is something that you would use if you would love to have what they're trying to build or break supported again number two is that the team and you can find this out there goes in in the white paper will be a list of the founders and developers have they had experience in building blocks of things if not you might think maybe they can produce it. and number four does it sound like the people who are doing this course love it themselves and the story. one of the more unique ice ceo's i found here is a russian project called marc space it's intriguing to say the least a three d. and virtual reality space creating platform powered by block chain technology basically it's a way for businesses communities and really anyone to run and showcase their service or an idea in virtual reality for example to virtually take a walk through a flagship store in beverly hills or do a test drive in that cool car you always want to so what's this hype and why. i
think because you know people understand that we have an existing company with more than ten years experience you know already and if you are and three dollars recession is on and we know you are now have a prior. that we can try to go to our website to try our version structurally build the but it will go upside they see that it's how does it actually work you go to our website you choose the place in our eco system it's a unit it's a virtual space then you use our virtual constructor and you build it very fast and very easy so you know even kids can do that you build your own three d. and d. are compatible go upside. in five years try over half of the world i promise you will be using crypto currency and they have to does a lot is going to be they have that probably doesn't have smartphones or any of the other. a u.s. spy plane has been intercepted by
a russian jet over the black sea american naval forces claim that it's plane was in international airspace over the black sea moreover it claimed that the incept was an unsafe maneuver however russia's defense ministry said that the mission was conducted in accordance with international regulations. and i'm thinking about it tonight thanks staying with on t.l.c. with the latest headlines in half an hour. of flight for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i dived. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money just kill the narrowness and spend the two to twenty million album fly a. it's an experience like nothing else
blowing welcome across the uk or all things are considered on peter lavelle release the memo russia gate morphs into the f.b.i. gate also are the u.s. and turkey on the path to confrontation in syria and the great debate in jordan peterson is called a one man army and has taken the internet by storm. across talking f.b.i. gate i'm joined by my guest mark sloboda he's an international affairs and security analyst we also have extra leverage he is a political analyst as well as a leading expert at the center for actual politics and we have dimitri bobbitt she is a political analyst with sputnik international regimen cross the girls in effect and you always can jump in. me go to you first hear. a we're going to see a new member new debate. like who lost turkey because if you
remember when the communists came to power in china that was lost china and it ruined a lot of careers because people didn't get it right ok. who's losing turkey who's gaining turkey going well let me remind you that in one thousand nine hundred eighty there was a big debate who was russia and the it was at the times when suppose that russia was so democratic mr yeltsin was still in power in these all those guys two boys and those who called the report called it s. called us all out of a few billion dollars right there that's about all the allness tilton's guys the younger forms but what's going on now between turkey and the united states is unbelievable i mean trying to remove a relatively loyal regime in syria which you know mr us with was oriented towards the european union more than towards russia the united states had made to almost a much more important country turkey where they might lose me by losing
a life and some job to go ahead of the united states to the crease is a very stark choice the u.s. has the cure in syria as a is the only force the only viable forward and they're in bed with the kurds that that would support the partition of the factual partition of syria and that supports the u.s. and and if so the u.s. can support the curate's and then it gets the ticket we see that happening now who are the united states going to stop supporting the curate's that turkey would be happy about that but then the united states would be left with almost no credible serious support force see and taste to it and no reason to justify their continued presence is a country that is ally with the curate's and they have to keep it as is an editor say a power considering that turkey has the second largest army in. that of
a very serious question you know one of the things is to do one he can't afford to lose in syria he's put too much into it oh yeah he's politically security invested i don't believe that peace in syria is possible. the question isn't while charlock saw it continues in syria but well ordered god continues in ankara. god must go hash tag what is that you've been in the military what is the possibility of some kind of confrontation you know because just as i just said and you just said it one is not going to back down this means a lot to him and his legitimacy at home and the ongoing problem they've had with the united states is it isn't so important to the united states because if you look at the the in the in defense community intelligence community even in the u.s. they're divided about what's going on in fact you're starting to see splits not
only among the administration but in the foreign policy blob between the neo cons and the liberal imperialists they're divided on this issue and victor is exactly right you either get a kurdish protectorate carved out of syria to continue to destabilize syria and weak in iraq and thus by weakening one of their allies or you get to make continue your relationship with turkey as a member of nato and then a u.s. turkish alliance which allows u.s. military bases in turkey that their flights are necessary for controlling the region also gives the united states access to the black sea which is russia's underbelly of course so there's big geopolitical questions here but obviously this is a self created blowback we've been saying on the show all along that if the u.s. tried to partition east syria with the kurds it would face blowback politically both from turkey and from iraq likewise erdogan has created this situation where he calls kurdish terrorists there's no evidence that any. kurds have been involved in
terrorism on his territory but he created this by illegally arming training and cellaring sectarian militants you know united states. of the arming and supporting the kurds are there is one good thing in a bottle of this situation finally with kind of the truth about the united states financing terrorists out of the mold of big snow out of the mouth of mr erdogan and so he's the guy who. well that's why you see it's not exactly a charge of the mold of no shortage of people who are being punished in terrorism. but here basically admitting to something that all the other need to remember us have no home but they have been hiding it yet so i had to put in these. where he drove himself by his decision to change the regime in syria he is now i'm sorry he's now spewing the truth let me know where to go if i can if i go if i put in.
the existence the possibility of a kurdish state when turkish border is an existential threat to a president of literature and that's where his name is there anything else would do right now do exactly what they're going to he's doing these are the curate's yes he made mistakes i agree wholeheartedly with mark as far as that he got the start he was one of those that supported the syrian civil war he created the situation where the syrian kurds who were who have now more power more autonomy and more willingness to act against the interests. of women he has to choose now i mean if he continues down this path he wants to drive all the way all the way to the iraqi border here i mean is he going to have to choose nato or not nato. is the level of negotiations agrees or disagrees and he he's not willing at this point to take it out of need to there isn't even the mechanism set for that. at the same time to
ricky and the gun is not going to do anything that will endanger the national security and seventy of the to look at what is who's bluffing here mark everyone's blood everyone's everyone is bluffing at this point including the syrian government and russia the kurds in our friend have now officially called publicly for the syrian government to help come in and protect them against the turkish invasion this isn't going to be met because they aren't fully they didn't fully agree to demands that russian the syrian government sent for them which included completely dismantling the kurdish militias and either moving east to the us controlled territory or joining the syrian army plus relinquishing control of oil fields in eastern syria which if the kurds deem if there kurds before this incursion started a little over a week ago if they'd just taken the deal to pick up the syrian flag that would've
no no that's that was the that was the minimalist demand they accepted that there was a maximalist demands from russia and the syrian government and there was no negotiation a compromise position should have been official the kurds or alfre offered that at the time they are offering that now that's not and has a habit of choosing the wrong side well you know it's one one one chooses the wrong side one place and that's what the kids are doing now let's hope that the kids will have a voice at the congress all syrian minority that is going to be held in sochi you know in the coming days but actually if you look at the pattern it repeats itself in syria you know the foreign invaders i'm sorry they've been trying to remove the syrian government created more and more programs you know that the states intervened in syria in order to replace a person who was not actually and they west and mr ross up and they've got a terrible problem with the state you know which was much more dangerous than ten
loss of state them together right. you wanted to put it it's all people in power in syria they've got their good your state right next to the border it seems like it's the worst possible outcomes if you look at it you know i mean how does this change mean the rest of syria we have reconciliation going on the syrian army is an essential one against these terrorist groups it's just the border area between syria proper and turkey is it a new conflict a very different and it can be confined and now it will have to stop near its borders every single power. that has a significant kurdish population turkey iran iraq syria is opposed to an independent kurdish state so it's not just to every single business how does that marcos' play into the huge minority of kurds inside of turkey and what's going on in syria i mean do we see more force.
