to hold a grudge he posted a tweet after saying good knock looking forward to the rematch. brett kavanaugh has been sworn in as a u.s. supremes court justice by one of the narrowest margins in the country's history as hundreds of people protested on capitol hill at his nomination due to sexual assault allegations against him senators who took the floor to state their feelings demonstrated the clear divide in the country. when the history of the senate is written. this chapter will be a flashing red warning light of what to avoid. truly. judge kavanaugh his confirmation is a low moment for the senate. for the court. for the country. i just. don't see how we can put somebody on the supreme court who thinks that the president is above the law very least we should expect
2:03 pm
a nominee for our highest court to be honest. i do not believe judge kavanaugh has met this standard he puts his thumb on the scales of justice in all ways with a bias towards corporate interests i knew him as an honest and dedicated public servant i was proud to be at the white house as president trump and mounts the nomination of this exceptionally. i do not see an open mind i do not see fairness i see a partisan ideologues who will do traditional backflips to rule in favor of large corporations the powerful and the elite confirming brett kavanaugh to the supreme court for the road and undermine the court's legitimacy and counsel has come back all at once united under a common name and symbol before it was all from vague russian hackers agents or just putin but apparently we can now name the entity responsible for everything all

along the g. all you russian military intelligence even specific names and faces have been linked with village crimes seven individuals were indicted by the us with four of them also accused of involvement in the netherlands w hack and three war already feed should in continuing russia meddling probe. this group of just sixteen people is certainly kept busy according to the latest allegations how can the malaysia airlines probe the o.p.c. w.'s solsbury poising investigation and he don't get agencies from canada to brazil the u.s. election you name it the hand of the g.r.u. is never far away and according to some the allegations are irrefutable proof of russia's guilt in all other incidents here you have evidence of the russian military launching a cyber attack on the very organization the international organization in the
2:05 pm
netherlands set up to investigate those novacek attacks and why would you do that if you were the guilty party and as we've seen before there's no need to meet any real standards of evidence remember when the n.s.a. was accused of spying on charts of the merkel back in twenty fifteen or the german federal prosecutor in the system a legal burden of proof to be met to prove this low such luxury what rushes in the dock they're almost certain and high confidence from u.k. security services are enough to beat the drum for new sanctions and anyway the soviet era k.g.b. is long gone the image of public enemy number one is long overdue for an overhaul and this is the perfect opportunity to consolidate the perfect storm chemical weapons got a lecture meddling it's got doping it's got every other thing you can think of that the russians are guilty of and i think this cloud of accusations is its own purpose
2:06 pm
even the normal rational people would say well why would they be saying these things unless they had some purpose and might i think it by throwing out individual names for example this sort of concretized as if somehow it makes it look like there really is evidence behind how hard is it for western intelligence services to get the names and job descriptions of various officials in the g.r.u. or any other government agency so i think that's what they're doing but it makes it sound like there's something behind it we may not know the whole truth or which side is hiding something but it's image and narrative which is important and the russians you know you bogeyman is becoming firmly embedded in public mindset. and it's not just about alleged malign activities by russia's secret services moscow's trolls sound apparently now turned their sights on hollywood and in particular the star wars franchise has the story. hey america they stole your election hey britain they stole your dream of
2:07 pm
a united europe democracy will never be the same because of russian memes thralls boughts well surely there is something still sacred in western culture are off limits to the russians. oh no the kremlin folks even got their hands on star wars russian trolls weaponized star wars criticism as an instrument for information warfare with the purpose of pushing for political change this was from a real study by a brave jet i call or i mean who claims there's been a force that was fighting to make the last jet i fail wow thirty seven pages remember how the movie got booed at when those names fans couldn't forgive the director for spoiler alert killing luke skywalker and forgive him for
2:08 pm
going against all the tropes so dearly cherished by the fandom remember how the star wars lovers army even campaign to fund a remake well now you know who did it the sitz sorry the russians had a great disturbance in the force as if millions of doses suddenly cried out into a sudden decide to prove it the guy behind the research analyzed almost a thousand online messages for the director and his result was more than half of the hate tweets came from trolls some of them were russian. the director didn't just pay attention he shared the link to the study with his twitter followers. looking forward to reading it but what the top line describes is consistent with my experience online well some vendors got even more
2:09 pm
disgruntled when they said they found their own tweets in the research it was a bad movie highly unlikely that it was a dry run for bots to practice we hated this film too loved rogue one but were totally underwhelmed by the last gen don so much so that my oldest questioned if it is worth going to the cinema to see any more disney star wars so did nothing to make me change my mind. mark a very disturbing it wasn't disney not even the director it was the damn room skins. and have an election is underway in bosnia and herzegovina will have details and other stories from the week after this break.
2:10 pm
unfortunately the united nations security council in his approach to yemen is only to listen to the speech of envoys it affords as many months or two months and then the representatives would weeks. i mean put him into present into the security council would make these statements which are always ready to. us to sign explaining to this idea of the u.s. dollar reserve currency empire they've built over post world war two hero for everyone gets a debt that america and pays homage to america china russia iran africa you can name it they're all saying now we want markopolos up even trump wants markopolos up he wanted for it we wanted to trade directly bilaterally we don't want to be part of the globalization that you are. joining me every thursday on the alex simon sure and i'll be speaking to a guest of the world the politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you
2:11 pm
then. u.s. special envoy for afghanistan zalmai is on a visit to the middle east in a bid to quote bring the taliban to the negotiation table however they don't seem especially willing to accept the offer part he was granted access to a taliban commander and asked him about the proposal. the americans never want to cooperate with the taliban and the taliban has never asked the americans again to cooperate against islamic state the americans a bombing us will we fight isis. with the latest edition of direct talks between the taliban and washington came from the u.s. state department last friday. this is ministration has made it clear that it is prepared to engage with and participate in the goshi asians with both the taliban and the afghan government with the leadership of the taliban doesn't want to
2:12 pm
negotiate with the americans there's never want to do this and the leadership of the taliban never gave the mission to any member to negotiate on the home front of us defense secretary james mattis had a meet and greet with the afghan president in kabul they finally decided to play nice in a bid to get the taliban down to talks but just one day before their words of peace washington dropped a big f. thirty five b. bomb on the taliban looks like the peace process is getting off on the right foot especially when the u.s. has for years led up to this moment promising both talk and terror i want to reinforce to the taliban that the only path to peace and political legitimacy for them is through a negotiated settlement to the taliban when their choices are to reconcile living a relevance for the have the taliban willing to come to the negotiating table
2:13 pm
there's no talking to the taliban we don't want to talk to the taliban we're going to finish what we have to finish so it's no surprise the taliban is reluctant to trust promises of peace and why would they seek it anyway in the past several months the taliban has made substantial territorial gains their spring offensive took coalition forces completely off guard seizing regions all over afghanistan over one hundred soldiers and police officers were killed in just one week of the offensive and that's not even counting last week's u.n. report covering civilian casualties in battles between the coalition and taliban forces. in this. city. and they. are. going to go right. that. said we're going to.
2:14 pm
america's two thousand and one invasion of afghanistan hoped to oust the taliban from power but what materialized it was a seventeen year long war the longest conflict in u.s. history and now fast approaching are monumental peace talks to be held in moscow between the taliban and the afghan government we can confirm that we will attend the moscow conference we're waiting for a date and then agenda then we will decide what can be achieved from the conference if successful these talks could mark a step forward in a conflict that currently has no end in sight donald quarter r.t. . scottish national party leader nicholas sturgeon has revealed she will announce her plans over a fresh independent voters soonest reason may finally figures out a briggs it deal with the e.u. that anybody likes it or not the future your key relationship is the context in which scotland would decide that question of independence could be later this month
2:15 pm
it could be november it could be december but that's at that's what i mean just to be crystal clear about the end of this phase of. september poll suggests that if briggs it goes as planned more scots now back independence than they do to stay part of the u.k. it comes amid growing concern over the briggs's terms and where that would leave scotland earlier main sisted that now is not the time to discuss another independence voters the focus should be on working together on briggs it talks for the hundred thousand pro independence protesters hit the streets of the scottish capital on saturday they were demanding a fresh. demonstrators called on leaders to set a date for a new referendum after the previous fake narrow lead back to the state part of the u.k. doesn't shouted from the radical independence campaign told us the momentum is now with those who want to split from the polls remain very close and probably around the fifty fifty mark however clearly the momentum is with those who support
2:16 pm
independence and the huge demonstrations but hundred fifty thousand people who took part sure caned of activists be there exists to promote the cause of independence in the country if scotland votes to the meetin say the e.u. and britain for example ends up with a new deal scenario then there must be a definite in them because that would lead to same probably the deepest constitutional crisis in modern history and therefore there's a real i think on the tory government to in some weird jesters question they're not doing that they're not going to do that and therefore the pressure is going to build the scottish in the in the scottish question. polling stations across bosnia and herzegovina have closed in the states general election the votes widely seen as being a test on whether the country will move towards integration with the e.u. and nato or remain entrenched in warrior ethnic rivalries more than three million people were eligible to vote just a few hours before the polls closed turnout was estimated at almost forty percent
2:17 pm
the first results are expected later tonight in an election process. that helping branded the most complex in the world. let's go living in the small nation of bosnia and herzegovina the young unemployed and hoping for change. so you drag yourself to the voting booths and that you confronted with what is possibly the longest ballot ever. for a country of just three and a half million this makes little sense until you delve into the complexities of this institutional set up. there with me nothing is ever simple when it comes to bosnia and herzegovina the country with three of these three predominant religion i mean even the warning labels on their cigarette packets come in three languages. let's go back
2:18 pm
a couple of decades. year after this june hit the airwaves yugoslavia collapsed following years of ethnic and political tensions. that led to years of war the deaths of over one hundred thousand people and a nato bombing campaign. in the process bosnia and herzegovina worst series are in store all for it doesn't.
2:19 pm
very. cool and welcome to worlds apart women's rights have long been a bargaining chip for all titians but perhaps nowhere with such devastating consequences as in iraq half a century after the constitution granted the iraqi women equal rights they face increasing pressure on how to dress what to do with their lives and when to marry their daughters off as the effort to democratize iraq resulted in the further subjugation of its women well to discuss that i'm now joined by han that at war
