3:30 am
and not just specifically to rush as if it were actually going to hear nothing you hear at all i mean anybody who goes on the internet comes across. what most has done is he wants to prove that there is this vaastu intricate dangerous conspiracy he's put all this together he's labeled the internet agency in st petersburg is responsible and he strolled around to various laws that he can stick offenses against these people essentially what this was if you read the indictment well this was a commercial barket thing is what it was and and even the indictment itself admits that it was pro and trump. hillary clinton and for everything in between i mean there's no specific political for him to it there's no connections at all there's not even any allege any connections between this. supposed company which is run by a guy who's known as putin chef because he ran
3:31 am
a catering business but before and it is this that is even if they're catering businesses for russian school children in the course of all it's a lot of cold food you know it was just going around the world media in russia that labeled him that and there's no connections at all to the russian government there's no connections at all to the trumpet ministration the truck campaign or any of the other four people on completely unrelated and you know spurious charges that we all or has charge any of the other four people who have been died on tax charges so anything else so we have four indictments before this now we have these indictments of thirteen individuals ever betray the three entities and none of them have any any connection with the russian government or with any or the drug. or any of the delusion at least it's an offer that they were russians they were lively interest thousand and sixteen and they post. something on facebook that
3:32 am
americans could see it doesn't matter that ninety five percent of the european media was very broad hillary trump during that campaign and americans could read millions of pages of their stuff during their campaign that's not important what is important is that these thirty russians did it well let me. make this see various court. bloomberg he is a writer for bloomberg he used to be a deeper all russian journalist knowledge he leaves of broad writes about drugs or just like marsha gessen the difference is that he knows a thing or two about russian history and literature i like much i guess so here's what he wrote i am actually surprised i haven't been indicted i am russian i was in the us in two thousand and sixteen and they published coolum screed a couple of both clinton and trump without registering as a russian h ok that goes to my next point alexander given what we just heard from my idea then christopher steele should be indicted as well he's a foreigner he wasn't registered as
3:33 am
a foreign agent he didn't. report to the federal election commission about what he was doing. this is a glaring absolutely law you don't know anything and we have to go to confession according to the actual in terms of its dimitri babich is the odd name fourteen for actually dissolved yes because people like to say it is crucial if you read the indictment there could be a very possible going to get really let me go back to the. steel because i think it's really important so the questions being answered i mean all the things that people have been indicted for all. christopher steele has done he has a lot of feel he is into feet in the us election he has done so secretly he has been phoning up new spaces he has been publishing information in adult see it that . he hasn't registered as any kind of foreign agent so why hasn't he been indicted why is the resistance on the phone to the justice department to undone this is
3:34 am
probably what i find most puzzling of all alexander is the trump's own d.o.j. and maybe it's a slightly different situation with the f.b.i. with the d.o.j. why isn't it moving there that was a mystery to me because it's the troops ok that answers the truck every move talked about it plenty of time to this before trump has no power of his own administration he's he's certainly given away foreign and military policy his own justice department is pursuing him and you know this cabal of generals mcmaster maddest mcmasters and kelly keeps him in a little playpen and you know he's only real power is tweeting and evidently he's not allowed to do that whenever he wants as well well i mean it's it's an attempt to use nineteenth century legislation twenty first century. i mean in the nineteenth century maybe it was illegal to bring in pamphlets in favor of a lot of the king it is during the campaign now we leave it then electronically
3:35 am
interconnected to what if i want my american friends to read my opinion on trump or on the i just posted on the internet i portico because he doesn't know twitter doesn't know borders actually makes you a criminal exactly but it makes me a criminal if that is what mr mubarak a well let's talk about election meddling a couple of days ago on the laura ingram program the former head of the cia james was lee was on and she asked a few questions about his reaction to the indictments and then she talked about election meddling but american election. abroad let's take a look have we ever tried to meddle in other country's elections oh probably. it was for the good of the system in order to avoid the communists from coming over for example in europe. in forty seven forty eight forty nine the greeks and italians we don't do that we don't mess around other people will. only for very good don't do that don't for
3:36 am
a. gentleman who are good viewers that was the former head of the cia who wants to go first. let me let me speak about here western media speaks about the former head of the head of the cia former cia could know you know if we use that language to use a boat to put out a. general form of the freedom caught up to that who say it solves it's mr. mr mubarak we're coming after you which was actually true you know and he's not mad that he's not interfering in other country's elections you know just somehow i think. that ukraine was the the crown jewel i mean looking for force regime illegal change there i wanted to react to that because you know they both chuckled in the. jar dropping you know you
3:37 am
you're accusing a foreign country and a very powerful one russia of doing something against your country without any evidence whatsoever beyond a troll farm ok and there is ample evidence mountains of evidence the united states middles in elections and has for decades in it's probably doing so exactly right now. when i was in greece in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight when that was the. first greece. i was actually taken prisoner at the age of six and the people who carried out the u.s. back to have. where we used to live was taken over by a family from the u.s. embassy so it's not actually such a long time funny thing well i mean is it not i mean if you look at the entire segment is it you know is it the u.s. does it it's ok with anybody else does it isn't ok that's the double standard ok if you could very with me a little bit i'm going to run for a little bit of literature i know you're prepared i know yes i write so this is
3:38 am
about the projection from the u.s. on to other countries like russia of what it does the guardian revealed u.s. spy operation that manipulates social media this is from two thousand and eleven the u.s. military the pentagon is developing software that will let it secretly manipulate social media sites by using fake online personas to influence internet conversations and spread pro-american propaganda and it specifically notes that the discovery that the u.s. military is doing this with fake online personalities sock puppets could also encourage other governments private corporations and government organizations going to also hear that when there was a program with on twitter and they did does the same thing with ease of e.q. but i'm very much on the seas this is the u.s. message that what we've just heard alleged there there's no connection to the next one more one more minute before she has a right g h c q this is the british version of the national security agency does
3:39 am
the same thing overwhelming evidence. that we have a database from carnegie mellon using the u.s. government's own data they've meddled in other elections eighty one times only up to two thousand not counting coups and regime changes and of course the famous how could we forget this picture time magazine russia the americans openly helped yeltsin in a rigged election keep our yanks to the rescue they were quite proud about their meddling back then they even made a movie spinning boris congratulating the ninety six million eighty six don't forget to vote face. you know well i think it's just. double standards you know but you know that it's interesting if you're right but they don't see it that way they can't see this far away from their face when it comes to issues like this well you know the problem is also with oh elite you know the response of rush and he is usually you are using oss in your internal struggle well for to tell you terry and i do it would you with global explorations which is no rain in the united states
3:40 am
there is no difference between foreign and domestic policy and your foreign policy is part of your domestic importance so you know they were trying to go in there just when you go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue what it was gushing on those thirteen russian state with our. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then.
3:41 am
hey everybody i'm stephen bob taft hollywood guy usual suspects every proud american first of all i'm just george bush and r.v.'s to suggest this is my buddy max the famous financial guru well she's a little bit different i'm not a going to go into windows up with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the brood have some fun meet everyday americans. and hopefully start to bridge the gap this is the great american. book. when i was so small seemed wrong but all quotes just don't all. get to shake out these days to come out ahead and in gains from it because the trail. when so
3:42 am
many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. you know when you know. what they. want to be. left alone they. said. you know somebody did say that. you friends. think. i'm.
3:43 am
welcome back to crossfire all things considered i'm peter lavelle to remind you we're discussing some real news. all right gentlemen let's switch gears here and go back to serious go back to the middle east. last couple of days we had secretary of state rex tillerson in ankara trying to smooth some feathers i mean both countries realize that they're at a crisis point here after a three hour meeting with the turkish president. there is the impression at least that some kind of agreement was made i don't get that impression the way it was what was released here what was the point of the meeting and what is the main bone of contention here because this is these are nato allies and they're going toe to toe no to no this. country syria were neither one of them should be this was obviously for washington to hold hands trying to reassure him it was their
3:44 am
over their farming of the y.p. g. on turkish border. the kurds and. a large chunk basically claiming it as a. of their own of syrian territory again much of it right on the turkish and and the iraqi border. so turkey is extremely upset about this there were these optics didn't do much because even as tillerson was arriving there was the announcement that the pentagon is going to be giving another five hundred fifty million dollars this year to arm and otherwise support these forces that he's very insistent on but there has to be a tipping point here deem i mean everyone is in is invested enormously in this operation here all of the branch of unbelievably it's called the invasion of the invasion of syria here i mean the united states is not making it better and it's saying the pentagon is saying it will stay in syria indefinitely against
3:45 am
international law here something has to go one way or another well what happened was that the states indeed kind of provoked their team to move in and that's was that was said by all foreign minister sergei lavrov who said because of the support of the kurds a lot of the kurds and you know this border security forces the americans started talking about them or they didn't tell the turks didn't. provide a pretext and basically i don't even understand why mr two was on this talking to. because god has been saying the same thing says to him don't know about the united states in the last two weeks he accused the united states off helping terrorists you know so you can see how desperately the u.s. is trying to preserve its relationship with turkey and it's all of the background of this is that we have an upcoming meeting in istanbul with iran turkey and russia it seems to me everyone is basically checking out the terrain here ok because
3:46 am
the united states is certainly not going to quote you are not cooperating with police in this regard when it comes to the kurds they it seems to me it's patently obvious that the u.s. wants a statelet it wants a partition of the israelis wanted the saudis are. going to go. and they want their own and they and we have to look at the occupied territory where the u.s. has if this is where the oil and gas fields are for syria again no money for reconstruction ok so everyone is looking at the horizon and i think he's looking for maybe he's going into the grand bazaar go ahead these are two equally invasions of syria to nato allies which are working at the moment at cross purposes they're both dangerous for syria and i think that's important point to remember as for him he has to try and balance the fact that he's now in conflict with the united states so he is now trying to get some kind of arrangement with the russians and the
3:47 am
ukrainians to try and balance out the am not really that you are is it being what he proposed that the turks and merican his work together militarily when the americans are embedded with the kurds i mean that's not going to. get out there this is the problem at the same time that he's trying to leverage the russians against the americans he's trying to use the americans to leverage against the russians so that he can extract concessions in syria can we which exactly he's quite clueless may be right just a few days ago when the reports about the turkish army using chemical weapons. appeared what was the reaction from the spokesperson for the u.s. led coalition. u.s. coalition has no information on this before when there were there was just a rumor about the syrian government using chemical weapons immediately they had was that while they have they had a lot of rhetoric for something they never ever happened they didn't even send
3:48 am
inspectors there that they were so sure that this information was correct went to turkey somehow they preferred to be silent this is the interesting thing to mark is that we have to look at the internal dynamics of turkey and everyone's perceived american stance is very popular. domestically for him so this is again another part of the spectrum that he's playing it i mean he first of all he accused the us of a coup trying to overthrow his government u.s. back to under the bed probably the only coup that i believe the u.s. hasn't been in recent times but it's an enormously popular with his islamist based and their bases as long as that top of that he's turned his country into basically the whole day resort for all of the jihadi across the world who are been barking into syria for the last six years if he suddenly got does an about face turns away from al qaeda turns away from regime change in syria he's got to deal with them on his own sort of the is there any also house you deal with alex is that again going
3:49 am
back to this. meeting with the ball with the iranians the russians and the turks is that. what everyone is doing is want to make sure that he is part of some kind of peace process were two countries russia and iran can play a forceful role an instrumental role because the united states is the spoiler ok it's the spoiler country it's not interested in any kind of conflict resolution that's the other kind of gamble that he has that you have but he's also trying to use he's deals with the russians to extend his influence into syria he's now sending troops into syria this utilitarian occupation in syria with the us then he said he's sending troops to provence there struck to the syrian. patrols openly with all collide and that's that's that's without that's the mecca of jihad right now but exactly and of course he's doing that using these
3:50 am
arrangements that he's made with the russians and the iranians to relate to legitimize that there is another side because of course that the russians are they say what we need the cooperation of. have been there's genuine. there's a lot of chatter. that the israelis are looking for a real real meaningful scary conflict with the iranians also with hezbollah or do you see this is a part of a puzzle piece right now because you know that would. for planners for american planners in the pentagon it would be nice to have a foothold in syria if an operation like that were to be pulled off i prefer to stay on the ground the fact let's just look at the facts israel has been firing missiles from the territory of a sovereign state in the condition of a foreign intervention of the civil war several times or one hundred. times in a look at exactly. what a victim or
3:51 am
a huge terrorist act three years ago and no one in the west even expressed condolences you know israel has been occupying lebanon since one nine hundred eighty two and that was the reason why it has but what came into being it didn't have not existed before and now israel which has been applauded. for intervention in syria is concerned about its security and the increased influence of iran. but. a very. cold message that the syrians will start defending their airspace to what degree that will be put into play we don't know i mean it certainly sent a very powerful message we don't know to what degree there. the russians or the remains were involved in that decision might i kinda think it was assad saying hey this is my country stop doing it as mark said you know. look you know we've had this media hype this week you know michael war dream has come true all the western
3:52 am
media were exactly where the former head of the cia thinks i'm going to be buried in syria and steal will start to kill russians he said to kill russians and iranians to syria to make them pay a price for. but russians have been i mean what happened was there near these oil reach areas of syria you know the syrian government i mean that question with basically illegal arms from there if you were the syrian government absolutely there were there were. a russian on the. five russians got killed this is what the russian foreign labor contractors consulate is going to see if the united states doesn't use a kid to me blackwater and their contractors so that western media try to make out to it a huge river waging like something that portion of wants to highlight if you. read it. army or something like that and things like that alex you know one of the
3:53 am
things is that you know one we keep tabs on in this program is what's going on in ukraine and unfortunately i think we're going to be talking a lot about ukraine you're. looking at syria looking at ukraine it in its totality it looks like american policy is just pure spite you know it's they their regime change in in ukraine given work out the way they want it because they lost crimea they have a frozen conflict against war and every once in a while when even the heart and then we have syria where they lost again it's ok and you have been ok. me i would call that mature foreign policy because i think that it is in america's vested interests it's its foreign policy by i think you know the anger is perhaps stronger than some bite and i think there is an element of that and of smashing about but it's also partly i think intended to show american power if you frustration but there isn't a limit there is
3:54 am
a certain element of calculation in which that if if you withstand you we hurt and you see that a lot in syria mark for forty seconds here i mean i want to go back to the one and . listen what's your gut feeling what deal was made and what and or the non deal that was made the i don't think there was any deal made turkey's proposal that they would basically do a joint invasion of syria that was probably there but that was rhetorical that's not even it's not even that that's not something that's happening on the ground we have in the us earlier promised turkey that all of its pet white p.g. the branded as the s.d.f. would be withdrawn east of the euphrates which means in particular man b. this is what oregon wants he wants african drabble this quarter which he already has and man beach to form his new chunk of the autumn in the autumn and empire in fact he referred to giving the us an autumn in slap which if you actually look it
3:55 am
up in the urban dictionary you'll find it actually is an indication of completely ineffectual this ok i'm not very insightful no and run out of time many thanks to my guests here in moscow and thanks to our viewers for watching us here at r.t. this is the end of our broadcast segment stay with us for our extended version on our you tube channel see you next time and remember cross talk rules. that.
