oh here's the get out. the all options are over all it just so you understand all options are on the. breaking news this hour russia needs to get out of venezuela president telling moscow warning that all u.s. options are on the table. the war between the u.s. media that rages on despite the long awaited move report including that there's no evidence of conspiring with the kremlin. school in the west bank has been raided by israeli soldiers with children is just ten held at gunpoint. and that's. all.
1:01 pm
very good evening to you this is r.t. international. and we will start this hour with breaking news because president trump has said that russia needs to get out of venezuela warning that all u.s. options are on the table the threat comes after around a hundred russian troops touched down in caracas on saturday a move called an unnecessary provocation by washington. yes the get out. the all options are out all it just so you understand all options are off. what he's accused of joins me is been following this story get out of that as well neal you see washington is very touchy when it comes to venezuelan a landed in caracas just over the weekend and so with that thing alone already
1:02 pm
sent washington into a fall aggro mode they called it a provocation now trump you have trump saying that russia has to get out of venezuela and before that the donald trumps a national security advisor on venezuela in particular john bolton here's what he had to say. united states will not tolerate hostile foreign military powers meddling with the western hemisphere's shared goals of democracy security and the rule of law the venezuelan military must stand with the people of venezuela so really you can see how washington really views venezuela as its own backyard where it's free to do whatever it wants freely so for instance when washington cherry picks a president it likes for venezuela forget the elections it's fine when russia sends its military personnel there advisors for instance that's a big no no. just the only they did seem pretty thick united states won't tolerate
1:03 pm
foreign military powers meddling let's move on though what's moscow fishley had to say about russia in fact is saying that there's nothing out of the ordinary going on in fact moscow has pointed out that it has a deal a cane agreement struck back all the way back in two thousand and one with venezuela that allows russia to send a small contingent not of its combat troops but of advisors to the country and i mean it makes sense in the way that venezuela has historically been a. massive customer like a major customer for moscow's for russia's military hardware so you need russia's personnel in there for just for venezuelan military to be able to learn you know the ropes over how the very elaborate russia's military defense systems work like for example anti missile defense systems and so on and so forth also motion to has also moscow excuse me has added that all along it has in this in this crisis i
1:04 pm
should say with venezuela it has been acting in strict accordance with international law and in fact that was one of the things that has prevented washington's intervention into it this is what the russian foreign ministry has been saying also moscow has said that the us is effectively denying latin american countries its sovereignty. have a listen. the u.s. has once again decided to bring order to latin america starting with venezuela we regret that the organization of american states has aided washington in straightening its colonial habits u.s. pressure and i mean any other country in this sense i mean it's not an empty not a thread but not an empty warning in this sense because previously washington had already tease that it has cuba nicaragua on its regime change list so with i mean there's a good ground for that to ok thanks for the there. and indeed we will get a bit more analysis now of the back of that let's bring in john white is
1:05 pm
a political commentator and journalist very good evening to you john what do you make of this i mean it's kind of. part of the course for donald trump saying all options are on the table that kind of threat stroke bluff and he's saying russia's got to get out of them as well what you make of this. well this is just further evidence of an empire that's entered its mad dog days in the same week as a trump administration it legally recognized the illegally occupied syrian golan heights as israeli soldier integrity no decision diktats against russia or did it to act in accordance with a treaty that it is sane with the sustained government of israel the legitimate government of venezuela is a see this isn't an empire that entered it's my dog this has taken on the character of a rogue state created a new moral legal or diplomatic restraint applies it's a very worrying development the neo cons are once again taken or the asylum in
1:06 pm
washington and or how far we have come says twenty sixteen when strong and true bought from us military interventions overseas notifying the presently become more catholic than the pope really comes to prosecuting that kind of policy so it's a very dangerous step change wrapping up the belligerency towards fairness will be the initial coup attempt which clearly field one breeder who is the self declared president trying to maintain that he represents the true forces of democracy in venezuela when every person everyone every seat especially at least knows that he represents in truth the forces of a gemini and the peters in washington that the numbers of troops that we're talking about seemed pretty clear there not enough to pay for any considerable use as a military force that in understanding is there in an advisory no if advisory capacity and again that's something we often hear about around the world countries protecting the u.s. sending advisors to to other nations what's the big problem for the u.s. here. well even though there's only a hundred russian troops or large advisors in venezuela just there over the weekend
1:07 pm
there symbolically it sends a very powerful message because this is a new development in greater multiple oddities a new game in town multiple out of it exists for the washington links to accept it or not and the fact that these military advisors are operating. in conjunction with the now i in latin america which the u.s. has long considered its body out and we know that the u.s. especially this trip administration believes that venezuela is a wholly owned subsidiary of washington and then again it sends a very powerful message very strong message but more than the out about what size of forces or capability i think the symbolism sends a powerful message because we have entered a new terrain when it comes to the advent of a multiple world and the decline of the you know pull up their world that washington has long presided over i call that donald trump prize which we've heard many times now all options on the table a kind of a threat strike buffy uses it frequently you get smaller nations is it
1:08 pm
a bit more worrying when he isn't against the likes of russia. is very worried because there is some point he's going to have to act on those arrows brush warts and all sets because you know if he doesn't act on them then people will not take them seriously what we know about donald trump is it certainly takes himself very seriously and he's full of bluster know that there are also great revelations of turned up nothing and stories are mindful with confidence and richard nude desire to leave some kind of legacy so very well being trained as a consequence and but it will have to act on the surface some point and i think a russia will oversee be keeping a cleaner on what actions are taken what motive forces may be deployed in the region or on venezuela but as of no i think that the whole world should be really worried about how this is developing and this that the character of this will stay in washington which is staffed by such an attitude on will to make will kill i mean this is a really extreme administration the most extreme administration certainly moderates think so it's nothing to be taken lightly but i think certainly think the whole
1:09 pm
world should be up in arms and wait to see some movement on the part of the e.u. and the u.n. to try and remember being in contravention of international law. john good to speak to my guest john white political commentator and journalist. meanwhile venezuela's opposition leader one is expected to announce a new plan to oust president nicolas maduro later on wednesday in the wake of a second major power outage in the country the venezuelan government seems. to think it knows who's behind the blackout with the country's vice president naming u.s. secretary of state mike pompei or national security advisor john bolton and republican senator marco rubio or a sheet of them the trio of misfortune perversity in criminality. a monday much of and as well remained without electricity just two weeks after a similar blackout local media claimed that up to sixteen of twenty three states were affected including the capital caracas and people were unable to go to work
1:10 pm
because public transport simply wasn't working. i usually leave it three in the morning today i had to leave at five am it's not worth going out when it's dark because you're going to be wrong but. i have to walk because there is almost no public transport and yesterday it took me two hours to walk home from work so it was an act of sabotage by squalid treacherous thank to their president quite oh. the uncertainty that currently exists makes you question what you buy as you just don't know whether what you are buying will be a waste without electricity. communications minister has a bloated pictures and videos of a damaged power station saying that opposition linked criminals intentionally started the fire to sabotage the system. and then to february billionaire richard branson organized a benefit concert on the venezuela colombia border to raise money for aid for
1:11 pm
venezuela and it's not clear exactly where the money is going. to strike syria. but this was. a good one hundred million dollars in sixty days. i don't see. an interview with one of the you know who was asking for that because
1:12 pm
the well to help i decided to pick up the phone and speak with him. i believe that the live eight concert that was announced in sponsored by richard branson was a complete failure they had claimed that they would raise one hundred million dollars for humanitarian aid but when the concert was coupled with the u.s. claim that it would bring in humanitarian aid which was neither humanitarian nor any it was a political weapon that was used against the venice well in government and the goal was very revolution so i'm not surprised that it was a failure and yet what is needed for the people of venezuela to overcome the economic difficulties is for the united states and the european allies to lift the
1:13 pm
economic sanctions which are causing the greatest damage to the country's economy and we demand that the u.s. get its hands off then scrap. the whole report of u.s. special counsel robert miller's probe into alleged collusion between donald trump and russia will be made public in the coming weeks from calls the investigation i describe us. thank you very much dory you're going to know we thank you for the. issue never have to approach it. allows that to take on the right to better it should. go over to get out of it. the reporter said to contain secret grand jury material which is not usually made public meanwhile trump stepped up his war against what he calls the fake news media in their midst staging
1:14 pm
a quote witch hunt wanted to trying to look at the key false claims that the us media made during the two years of the miller report. pick any year before twenty six staying in this book and imagine someone back then touting the idea that people from here helped someone settle in here and began using him as a puppet or their agent honestly that someone would right away get labeled as a conspiracy theorist the u.s. attorney general has just made it clear to the people in here the whole collusion story pretty much amounts to conspiracy let's hear from the people who for more than two years were trying to give you the impression that collusion is not a conspiracy at all our job is to bring facts to light others make determinations about prosecutable criminal offenses will not investigate this were journalists now rules two were pulled the facts as we know them which is exactly what we did pardon
1:15 pm
. facts as we they know them that little phrase could actually explain all we've been through with american news trump and russia what if instead of looking for facts to tell a story based on these facts the guys held onto a story so tight they try to come up with facts to fit it. are all these bombshells borne out of facts from sources which nobody knew who the hell they were buzz feed for one reported robert miller had e-mail and testimony proof that mr trump had made his ex lawyer michael cohen lie to congress about all the alleged trump tower in russia dealings a bombshell new report from buzz feed news certainly explosive reporting and without question this is a big one and it is breaking news perhaps major breaking news what make this
1:16 pm
a fact probably a good smell of the collusion bombshell gunpowder and the credibility of the sources. my sources are solid this reporting is accurate even back then when mr miller who barely said a word while he was still at work weighed in to explain the story was rubbish here's another big one that was based on what sources claimed donald trump's campaign chief she quit the mat with whistleblower turned kremlin geek as someone put it anyway julian assange how does this bombshell impact the collusion part of the probe the list of stuff that was supposed to make president trump shiver and put robert miller into razor sharp mode was quite long the russians said that we had they had information that could help the campaign clinton dossier firm also supplied information used in meeting of russians from tain komi
1:17 pm
that was truly time to make the case that muller should investigate the circumstances of the encounters with the president to determine if a crime was committed what we don't know is whether there was some quid pro quo whether there to what extent it involved was in the trunk campaign about whatever benefit they were getting from russia the final result you already know it there is no smoking going between. the rest of federation. so at this point we have to say they use people they want to talk about they're still being rush inclusion and all these things are conspiracy theories they have no evidence all the evidence there's been presented points toward the opposite actually being true there is no conspiracy or collusion or anything like that although it is common knowledge conspiracy theorists could never care less about official probes i don't need them on the report to know he's a traitor i have the t.v. we heard from former u.s.
1:18 pm
congressman ron paul says that despite the findings of the report democrats will continue to look for ways to bring down the president. the democrats don't like to hear the hear the truth and if they had their way they would not let anything out they're just playing politics that's all it is they've been they've been caught red handed lying through their teeth and now they're just going on and on you'd think they would just have a little a little bit of common sense there but no they just march on and i've been line for two and a half years and they're going to continue to lie and even this report honors all of them but i think what drives all this is just plain old hatred they decided they were going to hate trump and then there was a coalition there was a collusion with the republicans who didn't like him because he was a new cover and he didn't deserve it then you had the democrats automatically hey hating you know they had all the neo cons who are both republicans and democrats and then you added the media and they all got together and decided what this guy's a monster we have to get rid of and whether it's true or not i think pretty soon
1:19 pm
people are going to get you know catch on and get tired of listening to this but right now they haven't let up there's continuing to go after trump and and lie about the whole mess. ok i think staying with r.t. more stories coming up after this short break. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. they get accepted or
1:20 pm
rejected. so when you want to express. something want to. get it right to be close this is what the four korean people. interested in the logs it. will come back israel defense forces have tweeted that air raid sirens are sounding in the south of israel wednesday not far from gaza israel has deployed tanks and troops along its border with gaza after two days of growing tension monday
1:21 pm
a rocket attack reportedly injured seven people need to tell of if in retaliation israel carried out strikes on key hamas targets including the office of the head of the palestinian organization. the mall in the west bank classes at one school were interrupted by a raid by israeli soldiers one ten year old student says that a loaded gun was aimed to seize had is a story. your bill could have the rain the mud the sudden change. i mean the last dog until now this is. the final. now let me just hear. most of the inside discussion. with no one other than the support in the business and had the good. part is that
1:22 pm
enough. reason to. be in the us if another is did i mean anything the subject will have. an end to. it i just don't have a bottle. for such a procedure could. shut off. we
1:23 pm
asked the israel defense forces to comment on this incident they told us all proper procedures were followed and the norm of the students were arrested. almost a thousand palestinian children were reportedly arrested by israel last year according to the defense for children non-governmental organization fifty six children were also killed by israeli forces in two thousand and eighteen as more than a child a week the vast majority were killed by live ammunition in-joke quotes witnesses stating that the children were unarmed and pose no threat. the biggest backward step since the internet began and one of the a used darkest hours that's how critics who've included whistleblower edward snowden and world wide web founder sit in berners lee have been describing a new european law on internet copyright the rules forced tech firms to moderate content before it's published critics warn only corporations like facebook can pay for such huge moderation operations forcing all but the largest tech firms they say
1:24 pm
out of business tech giants will also have to pay for media content though some of one that they will simply stop posting media content altogether but each member state will still have to approve the legislation. more than five million people have signed a petition already against the moves a mass protests have been held but the issues copyright rapporteur insists that everything is fine. the adopted text contains numerous provisions that will guarantee v. internet remains of space for free expression we listened to the concerns raised the meme the just the snippet are now more protected than ever before the legislation passed by just five votes and then descended into fast when up to thirteen m. e p's reportedly said that they'd press the wrong button just three wrongly cast ballots would have stopped the legislation. but suppressed the wrong button on the vote the moment he used article thirteen and eleven it now moves forward these
1:25 pm
people want to run now countries can press barton go on world. does read this m.e. b.s. from the nationalist religion democrats claim they press their own button and a verse supposed to ward in favor of further a vision of the proposal they press the wrong button these people are in charge of swedish maps their article thirteen votes by pressing the wrong voting button i've never been less happy to be associated with the place. and m.e.p. from sweden accidentally pressed the wrong button when a casting board an article thirteen this is so you. can speak now with mike's eyes or who is a lecturer in computing at the u.k.'s university of central lancashire. i've been trying to get my head round this story and got an expert on the critics they've made their minds up they say this is a threat to
1:26 pm
a free internet these articles thirteen and eleven there are there are unhappy about should we be concerned. well it is concerning matters because at the end of the day the engagement of people that information are within use will be in the best case scenario delayed until the website filter the contents make sure that it has a free of any copyrighted material. so while it's not my not stop people from sharing information and publishing these from ation it will definitely take longer for these information to be available and consequently people will have less time to. interact with these new how is this new system going to differ from what we already have so really thought now that if you post anything that got copyright got
1:27 pm
took down pretty fast. well the current system we have is machine which identify copyrighted material but these machine based system works on the assumption that these copyrighted materials are well known like be said for music. song. copyrighted material like animation or something like that now if we want to go on. and check every a bloated content including means or jeffs or anything like that it means that you have to go further into checking these materials and obviously there will just said before will delay the process and it will mine cleared also to a lot of false positives where you would identify something as copyrighted while in fact it is not so if it's not an easy way for
1:28 pm
a lot of tech giants to go forward now what about their position that this is going to be very expensive isn't it sounds like it's a complicated procedure and that's actually going to force a lot of platforms to go out of business or change direction. yes because if you think about it from a technical point of view the current system or the current algorithm and help to identify copyrighted material has to go further which means that you have to invest more into developing a new systems in order to avoid being held responsible for publishing copyrighted material and avoid any fines at the same time when you develop this kind of system like i just said you will have some materials that are identified as copyrighted by mistake which means that you are delaying having this content uploaded. me cuse
1:29 pm
are less willing to do that maybe you will close the website or the news website will probably customers etc so the effect is going to be in a multi. directions. just warm quick question if i may just to finish finish up with you know people in the public consider the internet kind of there's one of the few kind of freedom aims that we still have in life and it seems like most people are pretty angry what's the feed but you've been getting to people really are going to protest. this. i think there is there is a two campaigns of the moment the campaigns are advocating for this to stop because it will. you know restrict the freedom on the internet very much and you have the other campaign from the other point if you were where a lot of publishers or musicians or artist things they're they are really not.
