russia as a maligned power meddling in other countries affairs. broadcasting live from our studios in moscow international and john thomas glad to have you with us. as the standoff between spain and catalonia deepened some following last week's independence referendum protests urging unity and a dialogue have been held across the country are trees honest now reports from barcelona. thank god this entire square in front of the cattle on leaders headquarters is topped with thousands of people dressed in white who are here to call for dialogue they don't want any harsh decisions and steps to be taken let's take a listen to what people have been saying here from our that it's to me looks like the vision it's just right here we cannot discount quality of the we have to show
you a war and say we don't want to support the mission people control who would want to speak about our program starting already been the case since from the spanish government that we want to do it. with the most pressing i mean that is one the result of tension in our society there are various opinions in catalonia many of us hell no voice we don't want cruelty we want peace peaceful coexistence and with don't want any confrontation was in politicians' elision us to confrontation but we don't want it to tell on is a peace loving civilized region we have almost coexistence in peace was going on right now is madness and it's no wonder that these people are calling for dialogue and no more confrontation because images of violence like these ones really some shock waves throughout the region here. was
was this comes as the latest that we know is that that's one regional parliament is trying to meet on tuesday along with the leader of the cause was to was to potentially march the process of them to come to us because this continues to be resisted by madrid to try to get in the way of this by blocking the initial meeting that was supposed to take place on monday but we do know that the talks on leadership did say that. we did forty eight hours of counting up all the votes of the of trouble first referendum they would go ahead with this process and it does seem that this is still the intention but this is yet another protest of many that have been taking place here and throughout catalonia in the last week where we have seen people protests for independence we have seen people protest against independence now these people are saying let's roll take a break and talk to each other which they think is crucial at this particular
moment was sort of this deadline announced by the council on the new ship is running out so he definitely wants to watch these because gathered here today was showing that because he was i think he was actually my god needs a god god god god god god god do you think they represent because it was necessary to come out she had made up a good night she said you guys thank you thank you thank. you madrid is continuing to put pressure on the troubled region and stresses that it considers the whole process illegal sprains foreign minister has warned that catalonia risks becoming an outlaw state and it now seems that even the catalan leader is softening his stance faced with madrid's staunch opposition. well now mother daughter the day after the first of october we will start
a new period taking into consideration the will of the castle and us cannot do not underestimate the strength of the people of catalonia. a woman upon the situation asks for mediation and mediation means that we need a third passive and i get to me i will make a direct appeal to the european union still the pro independence camp in catalonia has launched a petition calling on authorities to stick with this is action plan over ninety thousand people have signed it is so far calls are also coming from the cattle on officials for president carlos put you want to speed up the independence process but members of his own party say that things must be handled in the right way the struggle for independence unites us but we need to make things right we have to try not to loose or expel anyone from the process and a further development in the country madrid has passed a new law making it easier for companies to relocate away from catalonia and
several banks as well as energy telecommunication and textile companies have already decided to move their headquarters out of the region the recent business exodus was among the topics we discussed with several economists. i think it's the companies that are genuinely concerned about the break of the knoll and more importantly you know completely random the decision of which laws does the present government to buy to them which ones they don't because this is this poses a significant risk of full investment security and full for many other issues. and he wanted to go new kind of republic is not dissin yet audio the treaty system leasing the european union or the article money piece and then it would be outside the european union and outside the utah and outside the call up. all the european central bank. although the headline aside ninety percent of cuts loading and
voted for independence on the council on a referendum this past sunday these results are quite skoot because estimates at that only forty two percent of the actual cuts alone in population turned up for the referendum and we know that a lot of controversy as well. as a number of regional crises threaten to spill over into global scale contrasts trophies the white house has said that there is above all one man who is a force for peace. i think that the president is the one that's keeping the world from chaos to keep the world from crucial. totally destroying north korea it will be devastating to take it to you the. devastating.
moochers we're sending in your model is an incredible team around him helping them believe that effort it has never moved the u.s. to care about what other countries say north korea will be destroyed and we all know that many of. these tremendous accomplishments on the international stage iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transaction the united states has ever entered and we're going to continue doing that we're going to continue doing that as a team with the president leading that effort these problems will be so i'm a problem solver. the majority of those statements you just heard concerned north korea most recently on saturday donald trump a claimed on twitter that previous american presidents have not achieved anything by trying to negotiate with pyongyang he added that only one thing will work when it comes to resolving the standoff apparently referring to
a military solution reportedly a u.s. warship is heading towards the korean peninsula at the moment it is thought that more drills will be held with seoul for its part has again lashed out at america describing its action as gangster like moves for domination and aggression and political analyst we spoke to says washington still lacks any clear policy towards north korea. we do not see a credible strategy on the part of that on those from administration it is not prepared to negotiate to offload grand bargain and it does not really have a credible military strategy at the time at this stage surgical strikes against north korean nuclear. capabilities are also very risky such a surgical strike will be opposed by south korea as well as strongly by china
and russia and we also know for sure that diplomatic condemnation and economic sanctions are not going to push north korea to give up its nuclear weapons program . almost a year on from donald trump's shock victory in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. election and russia is still making the headlines over its alleged interference with little by way of any evidence provided we. tweeted a mock guide to western journalism artie's miguel francis ontario has a very unique take. here is all the need to know to become a top mainstream western journalist these days giuliana sun she has just put together the perfect guide for all you want to be media pros first randomly pick and newsworthy event make sure it's one the russians will definitely cover now all you got to do is blame the kremlin for colbert pulling the strings behind that
event why well because the russian press was covering it in the midst of the ever growing hysteria of russian particularly r.t.s. meddling in u.s. politics let's see whether songes russian hysteria guide is being thoroughly followed global event brags it made its way across the globe everyone reported in this major global event including russia of course and guess what brags that somehow got added to the list of russian involvement or for that matter any election this past year. i guess we can solidify house bought on a songes guide really is because even in catalonia that never had anything to do with russia moscow somehow got the blame for the catalans will to cede from spain
simply because well russia that's right reported on it and now we're getting to the most important part of the guide the motive which according to songe is of course profit them on c.n.n. constantly like russia the structure of. this is breaking. when you see the news tomorrow and there is something fishy about russia just remember you already know the formula for that headline miguel francis and thiago r.t. . media analyst lionel thinks that meddling claims are so frequently made against russia most people now automatically just accept them as fact when ever you say the russians. weighed in on something the russians have bought ads the russians did something. bad inclusion of the word russians you create this nefarious connection russo phobic red scare kremlin baiting
suggestion and it has been done with such frequency and such value that people americans and inuit people in particular and themselves have how big a way to do this they have condition where they don't even ask any questions they don't know me and they have a way they just listen to this the russians did it again did what i don't know so julian or sancia absolutely. correct. the russian military says it's the latest round of air strikes in syria has killed a number of high school field commanders some originating from the north caucasus region of southern russia but i've got to have as more one hundred twenty five is killed just by the russian air force and just over the last twenty four hours the russian ministry of defense says that a good amount of those fighters were foreigners from the central asian republics
from various arab countries and countries of the former soviet union and that would be highly characteristic of isis hooting to many reports foreign as our number locals syrians within the ranks of isis but many of those casualties were suffered by isis in the vicinity of. this city forty five kilometers south of that as sort of where we are now was the largest city still held by isis in syria now it is perhaps the hottest battleground in syria was through this fighting lasting throughout the night and continuing now but the syrians are allegedly in possession of over the heart of the city more than fifty percent the northern and way. inside isis is rushing reinforcements to dean obviously they did not expect an offensive of these ferocity but eighty people eighty jihad that were allegedly caught in a slew of russian ash strikes as well as eighteen technicals pickup trucks with
mounted high caliber weapons nevertheless the fight there continues and isis is still rushing reinforcements to i may deem to prevent its symbolic full. saturday marks sixteen years since the u.s. invasion of afghanistan in two thousand and one then president george w. bush accused the afghan government of sheltering the al qaeda leaders who masterminded the nine eleven attacks that saw the beginning of the so-called war on terror now america's longest running conflict ahead of the anniversary hundreds of people protested in the afghan capital kabul against of the continued presence of u.s. troops in the country demonstrators carried anti-u.s. and anti nato signs denouncing what they see as america's occupation of afghanistan it comes as new figures released by the united nations reveal an increase in casualties in the country over the last twelve months.
he says and he for me i was praying in my house and when i saw american helicopters i told my wife and children to save themselves after that i just heard a loud noise and then my house was destroyed six people were wounded including women and children. they destroy our house and our family members wife the americans are killing our women and children every day in afghanistan and they just say story it was a mistake. was sitting in a room together and suddenly we had a massive bombardment of religion and i was injured. to miss out on the explosion happened i was near to my ankle and consonance and they're going soldiers opened fire in a bullet flew about my face i ran in here and came out only hours later my uncle
and cousins were dead so i went to the village to tell everyone and fears of even greater civilian casualties are emerging as the u.s. military has decided to relax its rules of engagement in afghanistan are to samir khan has more. president announced a new strategy to the u.s. this sixteen year long war over a month ago which is just outlined by the pentagon chief earlier this week the old rules included. both rules are being under rules of engagement and operating principles included a requirement for proximity of the enemy to be engaged by our air forces so i've removed proximity and bad in itself open to the enemy were ever they are found to the nato air support so u.s. forces will now be fully engaged in afghanistan didn't authorize the use and to launch direct off kinds of measures against the taliban previously having only defensive permissions general mattis also announced that the u.s.
now fancy place in military advisors in almost every afghan unit we have got to reorganize or our advisors because those units with nato and american advisors when and those without them often do not win so we're going to spread the number of units with advisors but how much of a shift will this really be on my orders the united states military has begun strikes against al qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime and afghanistan commander in chief i have determined that it is in our vital national interest to send an additional thirty thousand u.s. troops to afghanistan starting next month we. we will be able to remove ten thousand of our troops from afghanistan by the end of this year is it going to require additional u.s. troops who believe it will involve additional forces so far it seems like every u.s. strategy in afghanistan has failed now the taliban still controls or contests twenty
percent of the country and it's unclear if these new policies will make any difference at all clearly they're not learning anything from the past but i would argue that the system that we are using to make foreign policy and national security policy is not geared to learning from the past of course as everyone knows the united states was unable to achieve the goal that it had set for itself which was to. basically put the taliban movement on the defensive and prevent them from being able to continue their advance now we're seeing united states paranoia trying to do something along the same line with far fewer troops obviously on the face of it it's an absurd idea one cannot fathom how they could imagine that they could be successful in this. eleven people were injured after a car mounted the pavement and plowed into pedestrians in central london on saturday incident happened near the natural history museum one of the u.k.'s
biggest a tourist attractions london's metropolitan police say it was a traffic accident and not terror related and the driver has been detained and is now in custody terrorism expert and consultant david load joined us earlier to discuss the situation he says despite saturday's crash being a false alarm of sorts u.k. should be prepared to remain at a heightened security level for the foreseeable future. the u.k. has been on severe which is the next highest level been there for three years. and i suppose really it's a sad state of affairs but we're having to get used to this you know it's sort of being prepared for talks obviously today's you know like a motor vehicle accident but it makes sense if you like to start a high level and to treat it like a terrorist incident does make sense to do that it's easier to scale it down rather than having to scale. investigation of puts i think these this is chris is quite
important i think also looking at security of crowded places i mean for example with say the manchester it's dark you know how far do you help us security code because don't forget. the bomber came from outside in towards the entrance towards the end of the don't. opposition activists held marches across russia on saturday they were called by a criminal critic and blogger like me. joined you know neal in the studio earlier with details around eight hundred cities across the country scheduled to be holding these rallies most of them according to a birthday gift to the russian president has to be a person celebrate his sixty fifth birthday and perhaps in a plot to spoil the day position figure alexina valen he had called for these nationwide protests so here in moscow resorts one out of around seven hundred people and a small number of people were detained that's now over those people have been released now what i should point out is that not all of these rallies have been
authorized by the will thorazine overwise asian is something you need when you bring together a large number of people to safety concerns traffic regulations and things like this so while police have been present at these rallies they've launched they've been there to ensure that everything remains peaceful so yes so far no violence in the one of the biggest tournaments was up north there was an instant petersburg bounce one of the biggest turnouts was in five pages but up to a thousand. people reporters who have been at that rally not police say dozens have been detained for violating traffic regulations passed off there we saw some confrontation protesters attempted to block police access to also police and with force to issue warnings off to a number of protesters use force to break up police blockades now what's interesting about this rally in some cases back is that the is that electing a volley actually told his followers on social media that this was an over the rise event however city will star as he's say that they did not grant permission for
a base to take place so maybe some people have turned up to this this rally thinking it's legal when perhaps it's illegal. st paul's cathedral in london has sparked an all out battle of the spires after failing to tag other places of worship in a twitter post now don't worry it is all part of world architecture day and look. it will. be.

protecting external borders fighting against curbing illegal immigration as well as harmonizing economic policies on the judicial system otherwise the europe we have today is doing would transformed into a strange loose community of twenty seven countries with nothing in common. a batch or sudden passing i've only just learnt. and taken your last turn. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry honey i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest . i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to
never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different to speak to now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. the economic development is all about numbers really we used to avoid this quarter we. modern six point zero. but what do we know about the other figures. when i think about the fact that our c.e.o. mike du made over twenty million dollars last year more than one thousand times the average wal-mart is that. with all due respect i have to say i don't think that's right. just how a free market would. people went from pretty simple financial lives pre nine

a program to boost interest in the military among two you know just. to step up to an apollo so that comfortable with yourself. things you can't go wrong with the military it's a great stepping stone for whatever career you want to do but some veterans are willing to tell enthusiastic children a little more they ask me call of duty is very popular first year video. it's play and that's because the military like call of duty to turn off call of duty oh yeah . or a lot of these kids just don't hear. the darker side does the pentagon allow them to be told or does it just need more recruits. and it always gives yeah are you going to are you going to. show you also the you know mr wilson is going. to go into another of those other three that into eternity that in the middle you have. to go it was.
