international australia has suspended its strikes as part of the u.s. led coalition effort in syria amid a militarised between russia and washington with the details. looks like the reason why australia has decided to hold airstrikes in syria is because they no longer feel that the situation there is safe here's exactly what the statement said as a precautionary measure australian defense force strike operations into syria have temporarily ceased a decision on the resumption of a.d.f. air operations in syria will be made in june course but why is the situation there not safe because the agreement that was signed by us from russia back in october twenty fifteen the agreement that prevents any sort of collisions or dangerous incidents in the airspace over syria that agreement as of yesterday has been halted and that means that as of now there is no any sort of regulations in place to
prevent the us air forces and also the russian air force and hitting each other and this of course came after sunday when the u.s. shot down a syrian fighter jet and that has prompted russia to announce that any coalition airplane flying on the west of the euphrates river or potentially targets that could be tracked down here's exactly what the ministry of defense would any aircraft belonging to the u.s. led coalition detected in the skies west of the euphrates river with the russian air forces operating will be tracked as targets by russian air defense systems well that's taking a certainly sounds threatening but bear in mind the russia also made it very clear that no coalition play will be shot down automatically that everything will be decided on a case by case basis and action we only be taken if a coalition airplane poses a threat to russian aircrafts another thing to bear in mind is that on sunday's incident is barely the first time that the u.s. has attacked syrian government forces in fact there have been four attacks in the past three months and the u.s. actions in syria certainly raise concerns with the u.n.
it does bring up a broadly or deep concern of the risk of possible miscalculation and escalation in the conflict in syria so essentially what we're seeing here is the potential fallout between coalition partners as straightly its latest position clearly show that some of us allies. do not feel safe in syria international relations professor jamal wakim told us that australia's move signifies that some coalition partners don't want to take responsibility for u.s. actions in syria the united states is pushing hard now to lose ground in syria especially that the syrian forces are expanding their control over the city and that it could be and they were. also able to reach the border with iraq which doctored the american plan to drive a wedge between iraq and syria and this is what makes for example australians and
other. coalition members feel afraid because i believe that they might. see themselves as targets for the russian forces stationed in syria. and they they might fear a potential let's say that their jets might be downed by russian forces let's take a look at how the u.s. presence in syria has evolved under the pretext of fighting islamic state u.s. led coalition airstrikes began in september twenty fourth without the permission of the syrian government we will degrade and ultimately destroy eisel at the end of twenty fifteen washington officially began sending special forces into syria to help the so-called moderate opposition again without the permission of damascus twenty sixteen u.s. troops were spotted across syria with washington reluctant to say had it set up
bases there that bite september twenty sixth the u.s. led coalition bombed a syrian military base for the first time although officials admitted that it was unintentional ultimately we made an unintentional regrettable they were primarily based on human factors in several areas in the targeting process then in april of this year washington launched dozens of cruise missiles at a syrian and. a softer blaming damascus for an alleged chemical attack that was followed by the coalition bombing of syrian pro-government forces on three occasions accusing them of violating so-called de confliction zones self-defense of our forces inside in a stab leafed an agreed upon confliction jong then just earlier this month the u.s. deployed advanced missile launches to a base run by its commandos washington's top military commander was hard pressed to explain the legal grounds for shooting down a government jet in this latest attack after his response fell rather flat we're there and have legal justification in new york through zation use military force we
are prosecuting a campaign against isis and in syria general dunford is referring to the authorization for the use of military force that was in two thousand and one after nine eleven that was related to al qaeda in afghanistan so now he's trying to pretend that this somehow justifies attacking syrian grown forces and syrian air force inside syria so what we've got going on is a clear violation of international law it's illegal to fund a proxy army attacking a sovereign state it's illegal to fly over a state without authorization and it's obvious act of war and aggression to go into another country and shoot the the army ants down the air force of these sort of unsteady. and brutal war rages across syria civilians desperately fleeing the conflict we caught up with one man who gave up everything to escape iraq where the u.s.
led coalition is battling to liberate the city from islamic state here's his story . coalition planes struck the district of daria i was with my daughter at the time and just like that she perished after just last week i lost my leg more often than not the u.s. planes hit civilians and one of the guys still. is most of the civilians who die in the area districts of the intracoastal university oh how markets. all these buildings have suffered from coalition woman has no place is safe.
an explosive to bring in now a new islamic state leaders emerged in northern afghanistan after his reported release from the notorious baghran prison in twenty sixteen as a solar is the son of a us back to how the leader and his rise to power has seen him fight off other terrorist groups in the region and force locals to convert to eisele but i guess d.f. picks up the story from afghanistan. beyond this desert and those mountains lays islamic states newest caliph and the realm of warlord as azula stars himself as a warrior of god others call him a heretic cruel and heartless. he has murdered so many and besieged even more there is no end to his killing at least twenty five members of my family could people's heads off their legs arms and fingers some victims i
couldn't recognize because of what they did to their faces i lost my son everyone lost their sons head moment ammerman he is the most evil men in the world it is because of him that was tough he in poverty he brought his terrorists home homes and murdered everyone as azula is a second generation warlord jihad just just like his father dangerous and vicious fanatical until recently he was incarcerated in baghran prison then came his unexpected and unexplained release. he's an international terrorist it was american soldiers who released him from bagram for have a reason to let him go and now he has come for our lines which doesn't make immediate sense bag graham is officially run by the afghan government by graham is owned by the americans the afghan government doesn't have the capability to run it
it was the americans who released as if they want to they could catch him very quickly but they don't and i can't tell you why as it zula fed on the chaos and corruption in afghanistan in his rise in mia months he amassed hundreds of fighters an arsenal of weaponry and handily defeated both the afghan army and the taliban converting his enemies to his own cause and it wasn't faith that did it you know he's the richest man i know he has support from abroad and so much money he pays his fighters almost a thousand dollars that's why so many join him for reference that's about five times more than afghan soldiers are paid attempting some refugees say corrupt afghan army troops sell as his rule of the weapons he needs them and foreign
sponsors many chose to resist some did so by running away risking starvation rather than leave and as a terror radical rule others resisted with arms. i guy is a militia leader he has organized locals into a small force to resist as azula government the us they don't help we finance also by selling our houses and lines to buy weapons and ammunition all the locals and the fighters we've spoken to say the same thing the afghan army sits idle selling weapons to as the united states it's marines jets and coalition allies a new way to be seen leaving warlord as is unchallenged or i guess the of. northern afghanistan well we've been in touch with the pentagon for comment about others who lives release from prison but we haven't heard back from them just yet
prime minister to resign my government faces accusations that its security failures played a role in the terror attacks in the capital and also in manchester and the latest incident. was driven into a crowd of pedestrians after ramadan present just finished. looks at how britain is finding itself seemingly vulnerable to extremism. because. the method and now painfully familiar and the call innocent pedestrian. a country woke to news of another terrorist attack. on the streets of our capital city. this was an attack almost claims made place of worship god yeah i think. police
declared it a terrorist incident within eight minutes this was at the white clearly an attack on muslims the u.k.'s prime minister has had to denounce a fourth act of terrorism on british soil in just three months terrorism extremism and hate trade take many forms that has been far too much tolerance of extremism in our country over many years including islamophobia islamophobia has been rise and the since the westminster manchester and london bridge attacks which were precincts by islamic extremists the matter of london city khan has acknowledged that violent extremism can now come from anywhere terrorists so much for it but other means other than islamists much of asian perverse the slowest motivation the could use this the police recognize this is a challenge a they face just hours after the attack a mosque in east london received
a bomb threat and had to be evacuated authorities have now increased security around all places of worship but that hasn't been laid everyone's fear is the important thing to know is that this is a very very different types of things we've had before this was specifically targeted towards a minority community and the key thing to say here is that in the past we've had. about dividing lines between community how you have to separate you know this the british society in this muslim society and how this somehow the dividing line what this attack reminds us is that the only dividing line they exist is those who believe in justice freedom and peace and community cohesion and those who don't there are huge community tensions in this country the british muslim community have quite rightly emphasized that over time there have been rises in the number of attacks on our community islamophobia it's acts what needs to be a socio economic changes to our society and some clearly political leadership but happened here in finsbury park has shown yet again how deadly the
bluntest of tools like cars and vans can be when in the hands of those wishing to commit violent acts of terror figuring out how to prevent such attacks is now a major challenge that's arisen mase government. r.t. and london. international affairs expert johnston leidy's says the terror threat is growing at an alarming rate. was potentially the beginning of a second summer of terror europe experienced this last year was the doubling of terrorist attacks over twenty fifteen and right now according to your own poll the rate of terror attacks in europe is increasing over last year's rate and there's a terrorist attempt in europe mostly in the u.k. and france right now about every day the first responsibility of any government is to provide for the safety of its citizens that is both internally and against
external threats. the number of people dead or presumed dead off the ground full time a blaze in west london has risen to seventy nine the metropolitan police say that number could still rise further so far the identities of five victims have been made public but it's thought it won't be possible to identify everyone who perished this is the latest video from inside that charred building and shows apartments where police have accounted for everyone who lives homes reduced to ashes their belongings incinerated the fire broke out early last wednesday morning and swiftly engulfed the twenty four story residential blog another video appeared online of firefighters reacting to seeing that blaze for the first time.
the prime minister's response to the tragedies also been heavily criticized and huge protests in the capital have been calling for to reason made to step down one aspect that's particularly angered the british public was amazing u. turn on where the survivors now live. every single family will be re housed in the local area we are committed to ensuring that people are really housed as far as possible within the barrier or in neighboring areas some people may actually want to go to another part of london to resume has ordered a thorough inquiry into the tragedy and pledged five million pounds to help the victims however the leader of the u.k.'s opposition labor party says that's clearly not enough jeremy corbyn also suggests that nearby vacant homes should be opened up to the survivors there are a large number of deliberately kept vacant flats and properties all over london it's called land banking people with a lot of money buying a house why
a flat keeper and you would seize it forever or just just take it for as long as they need it just look at them economically apply it compulsory purchase it requisition it there's a lot of things you can do the tragic fires dealt another blow to to reason may's popularity following her snap election setback in which she failed to win a majority in parliament as you can see her ratings have suffered a severe drop since last december and according to the polls hugo of more than half of britons are unhappy with may as leader the c.e.o. of a grassroots charity organization in the u.k. believes the prime minister is too distant from the ordinary people of britain. with each event that has unfolded since they referenced the bridge attack she is showing herself to be further. away from her people who she is the governor she is displaced she may be a governor on a political speech on the political sphere but she's not the people's voice she
doesn't have the people's hearts and the people's will. when she makes her decisions and her plan. is rising among residents who've learned that a saudi diplomat who killed a cyclist is unlikely to face prosecution due to his immunity peter all of the reports from where the fatal road accident took place one week or tributes by the sport where a fifty five year old man was knocked off his bicycle and killed on this busy street as is common here in germany he's only been named michael out of consideration for the privacy of his family a diplomat from the embassy of saudi arabia unexpectedly opened the door on his porsche s.u.v. it around eleven pm on tuesday evening last week hitting the cyclist knocking him from his bike when he received a serious head injury emergency responders rushed into hospital. later the next day
the driver of the car has immunity from prosecution due to his diplomatic status and as it stands it looks highly unlikely that he will face any charges that hasn't gone down well with locals here there should be irresponsible and take responsibility for things like the. disgusting actually that he has meaning if he does not want to face the sanction then his siding be diplomatic status. it doesn't sound good if there are absolutely no consequences and if this is the case and this is an injustice because i can't. it sounds like we live in a society with two classes it's almost like a diplomat saying i can do whatever i want the whole idea of diplomatic community really needs to be rethought the family of fifty five year old michael and demanding justice however it seems extremely unlikely that they're going to get it at this point i don't care if he's a diplomat are not it's not right that someone can take
a life like this and get away with that he should receive a proper punishment due to the saudi officials diplomatic status the only options available would be to appeal to riyadh to have his diplomatic community waived or for germany to officially expel him however diplomatic sources tell us that the most likely outcome is that the saudi foreign ministry will quietly recall him peter all of. the saudi embassy has published a statement expressing its condolences to the family of the victim on friday also saying the bearing close contact with the german foreign ministry. a self-proclaimed prince has been living the high life around europe fulling the rich and famous that was until his bill arrived. ever dreamt of living like a royal in the lap of luxury this fifty something from its lee certainly did and he dreamt big french annotates claim to be the hereditary prince of macedonia and
serbia in fact and albania and montenegro even though montenegro hasn't had a moment the since one nine hundred eighteen but the information on his official website begs to differ still not buying it while many high ranking officials and celebrities did including the archbishop of monaco and the vatican secretary of state mr czerny just didn't lose any time to enter his life into a stereotype one thousand former baywatch star power anderson could think bigger bestowing five orders of chivalry upon himself again check including julius caesar in his list of ancestors sounds more like you and no one bothered to check his documents from fake passports to the license plates on these cars which he drove around with his self-proclaimed ambassador they've been traveling around europe since twenty fourteen but it was only when they refused to pay for a weeklong stay at a luxury resort in italy that people finally caught on the guest asked for the bill to be sent to the macedonian embassy in rome instead of immediately raising
suspicion both come and have now been detained and are awaiting trial proving that the easiest way to make your dreams come true might not always be the best way. i was time for us all to be snapped back into reality in a few moments your latest kaiser report is on the way looking at the rollback of u.s. relations with cuba under donald trump. let's talk about blackness and the bills that deem black. and always will in a big don't know at least as we have been told. we in relays as such because we simply. scene we've allowed them to rearrange the plane you told us to sickness of trusting the enemy we came to face. that's what i call the lack of blackness or
understanding the blues have been black. sheep the blues have been black should mandate that we attack knowing how when and what to do to come the simple in his national is be black simply tag the feeling blue is black and blue. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the sixties pull on ourselves the only show i go out of my way to. really packed a punch. yep is the john oliver of party americans do the same we are apparently better than booth i. see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight president of the world bank very. seriously send us an e-mail.
i am max kaiser this is the kaiser report one member of the sub prime crisis that destroyed the global economy in two thousand and eight required central banks to give warren buffett billions of dollars so that he wouldn't have to suffer a single day without. padding his bank account while charlie munger and all the rest of the crowd wall street well now we've got a lot of the same thing again. the new sub prime is here and it's stocking the glow. stacy. this time is not going to be anything as spectacular as the american dream owning your home all that sort of thing your man you know a man's home is his castle this is just the automobile whoa the automobile yes yes
tell you more some prime automobile loans could threaten to take down our economy our ponzi scheme economy and you know the fed is now tapering a ponzi they're trying to taper a ponzi right as all of this subprime auto loan. detritus comes to market the toxic try to better service i say to try to that's good so this toxic trifecta for auto loans is fueling hash tag carmageddon institutional investors that manage other people's money grab subprime auto loan backed securities because of their slightly higher yields these bonds are backed by subprime auto loans that have been sliced and diced and repackaged and stamped with high credit ratings but those issued in twenty fifteen make end up the worst performing ever in the history of auto loan securitizations fitch warned so those with
a twenty fifteen vintage subprime auto loans fitch rates these as experienced cumulative net losses projected to reach fifteen percent yeah the vintage twenty fifteen some prime auto loans taste great with some bailout money from long term capital management from one thousand nine hundred ninety thousand but that together with a nice bottle of beaujolais from chernobyl and you've got yourself a fantastic meal for robots ghosts and other retro baits hey you know this is amazing that actually the sub prime auto loan market exists that another word what this means that people who have no income no assets and probably don't even have a driver's license can go into a car dealership and they'll arrange financing for purchase of a car and to simply appease the big three car on a manufacturer's in the global car industry.
