“The network Twitter demonstratively banned the accounts of RT and Sputnik from advertising. The decision can be only be explained by pressure from the [U.S.] government and intelligence services.”Twitter’s decision was partially influenced by reports from U.S. intelligence services regarding Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, but no pressure was exerted on the companies. RT and Sputnik still have functioning Twitter accounts.
“The reason is the creation of a legal framework enabling the Americans to do what they have done for decades invading one or another country and using national security issues to justify their actions.”It is the U.S. Congress that seeks to reinforce its authority to authorize war. The U.S. administration is merely asking that the existing war authorization not be repealed or that any new one has no geographic or time constraints, given the nature of counter-terrorist operations.
