i. i. i i. together it's been a long time since we were together like this. people of southern syria experienced a moment of peace after russia and the u.s. introduced a cease fire in the region we got exclusive video coming up from this hour. head to the german chancellor for underestimating the dangers posed by leftist radicals . at the g twenty summit in. a rat place victory over islamic state in mosul a city in ruins as its people pay a high price for the liberation.
there live from eleven in the morning this monday with you here not internationalists morning thanks for choosing us first the locals in parts of southern syria enjoying relative peace for the first time in six years that was made possible by russia u.s. brokered cease fire deal in the region has exclusive video from the ground. we wish for the truth to hold and that peace will finally come to the whole of syria. we are here sitting together it's been a long time since we were together a little bit in peace. but we were respond quickly to any violation at any time we are ready to protect the civilians it.
appears nichiren next and has more of the specifics of this deal as well as international reaction to it. last week saw the first face to face meeting between the u.s. president and the russian president and also which the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov announcing the two sides had agreed to implement a cease fire in the southern provinces of syria that came into effect just days later on july the ninth to discover russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreements with syria will come into effect in three areas. and it will come into force on the ninth of july the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the sushma and ensuring humanitarian access to the areas initially security in these areas will be ensured by russian military sleeves and close cooperation with the u.s. and georgia now these three southern provinces that sergey lavrov just mentioned they share a border with jordan which is also part of the agreement and they also share
a border with israel and inside of this is the golan heights now this is a disputed area between syria and israel it's syrian territory but it's been occupied by israel since the sixty's according to the u.n. and of course in the past few weeks we've seen an exchange of fire a certain exchange of fire between the two sides in this this disputed areas so this deescalation zone could also help prevent more such incidents in the future we've heard from the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson who said this new agreement is a sign that the u.s. and russia can work together in syria also very optimistic tone from the russian president vladimir putin. regarding whether the u.s. position on syria has changed i think it's become more pragmatic in general it doesn't seem to change but there is now an understanding that we can achieve a lot with the united effort. while this new programmatic approach from the u.s. is russia's president has said is seen as an important step forward in the ties
between the two sides it's also being lauded as a positive step by a key leading figures including federico moscow really who is the european commission vice president and also the deputy. envoy special envoy for syria. and the agreed cease fire deal over an important area in the south of syria is a positive development the implementation of these arrangements towards a nationwide society should of whose to and unhindered humanitarian access is key to facilitate the interest syrian talks under u.n. auspices in geneva now while this is no doubt an important step forward in relations between the u.s. and russia shows the two sides can work in agreement they can come together and make some positive developments in terms of fighting terrorism let's not forget that we've been here before there have been numerous cease fires brokered numerous deescalation zones set up since the syrian war broke out six years ago when they've all broken down with the two sides accusing each other of violating the terms of these agreements so it would be top to mystic to say that this is
a major breakthrough for the syrian conflict as a whole and actually when there are still a huge question still on. the major stumbling block being of course the future of the syrian president bashar al assad and his role in syria you know we send out a few experts in regional affairs about this latest cease fire deal or whether think it's going to go. i think that the russian president put it best when he said this was a pragmatic american approach which no longer sets conditions like the ruvell of this president i think this factor does indeed make the chances for this latest cease fire to be more successful it increases the likelihood of success because we do indeed appear to have a new american recognition of reality a more pragmatic as i said american approach so i think we should be fairly optimistic because previous. failed because there were powerful spoilers
in the aleppo case with. the al qaeda affiliate which was very strong and was able to disrupt the cease fires there in the south the military situation is different most of the fighting forces on the rebel side are smaller groups affiliated with the so-called free syrian army and affiliated groups of very small in numbers i think both sides the syrian government side with russia behind it and the rebel side in the southwest with america behind them want this to work. german chancellor angela merkel's under pressure following the unprecedented violence at the g twenty protests in hamburg the country's president now says germany has witnessed the brutality need is and.
we have not had violence of such magnitude at demonstrations in germany in recent years. there were apparently some who acted ruthlessly and destructively against police forces and also against the property of ordinary citizens. well german police were out in force but nonetheless over twenty thousand of them still struggle to contain protesters with hundreds of officers left injured security forces in hamburg faced criticism for failing to cope with the chaos of the rallies this video here shows violent protesters in black masks throwing chairs and firecrackers through shop windows apparently no sign of any police officers to contain the march images of burning cars and streets awash with deadly left local shocked international media outlets echoed those thoughts to you know some of the headlines of the shoulder chancellor merkel condemned the violence well many german politicians stressed that the left wing radical protests had been underestimated.
the end she said to give it and get him to put sally teat of t.v. put it side a and decent talking to skits funds is good fits him if you don't get tough in this fall television chefs that escaped michigan thinks that they should have to go to prison not only bunched if doing what i need to further. i .
as the dust settles in hamburg following the g twenty volunteers but how to clean up the streets and try to restore the shop from this there's a lot of mess unless we talk to say violent leftist groups have been in that area for years but till now nothing's been done about it. the left wing commits much more physical violence on the right wing this is something we know over here is obvious see it for many years and nothing has changed yet definitely there has been much more violence on behalf of left wing. extremists but. also certain the difference in the targets of course that they choose it is. a while and now that we have seen in hamburg which is really like a senseless. meaningless just looks for
a media. appearance just once too shocked. to the business regarding the g twenty it's thought they may have spent some time there considering what to do next about the crisis on the korean peninsula with the rhetoric ramping up between the north and the us right now the year of strategic patience with the north korean regime has failed many years and it's failed and frankly that patience is over i give the highest honor to our respected great leader kim jong who made our country a powerful nuclear giant having the most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile. the united states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies one of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces we will use them if we must our spectacle leader kim didn't own
said the u.s. would be unhappy to witness north korea strategic power on its independence day and call for frequently sending big and small new packages. of course when it comes to nuclear arms north korea and the u.s. a far freakery much to pyongyang still doesn't have any missiles capable of sending a warhead over enough distance in for the furthest i've got so far is nine hundred thirty kilometers that's nowhere near the range of the u.s. warheads so question is will the threats of a really amount to anything we put that to gregory alledge from the korea policy institute. i think it's a great deal exaggerated. first of all the croissant fourteen missile that it recently launched there's some question whether or not that's even an i.c.b.m. so a russian monitoring equipment had a very different result than what we're here in united states if you're sort of saying about the capability of them it's also russian if it's a good thing it's a actually intermediate missile but even if you take the u.s.
position that it's that i.c.b.m. and the range is only capable of hitting alaska and that's where. apparently most likely an empty warhead if you add the weight of the weapon that would be good for there but it's only a single test not any kind of operation old nuclear weapons program we would require a year with testing and multiple multiple tests. united states has nearly seven thousand nuclear warheads north korea right now probably no more than ten it would be suicidal for north korea to launch a nuclear first strike and with north korea is quite explicit about the purpose of its program is a nuclear deterrent its intent is to ward off attack from the united states. there's a bit of a double standard here and washington has never complained about india israel or
pakistan's ballistic missile testing in fact india conducted the domestic missile test earlier if you're as good pakistan but only north korea's singled out with u.n. sanction forbidding it from doing ballistic missile testing and i think the gist of the washington's concern is that they have friendly relations with other nations whereas this has quite hostile relations with north korea. more washington and threatens north korea or comes out with harsh rhetoric the more it actually convinces north korea of the need for a nuclear weapons program the united states regularly conducts joint military exercises with south korea i think the last one involved more than three hundred thousand troops and ships and airplanes and they're practicing the bombing and invasion of north korea and they also have commando. exercises that practice what they call decapitation strike which in other words is the
assassination of north korean officials and you can imagine if the reverse were to just imagine syria from russia were conducting joint exercises or cuba practicing the bombing of the united states and invasion the united states and practicing commando operations to assassinate u.s. officials the reaction i think would be utterly hysterical but when the united states does the same thing against north korea it's seen as just normal or everyday business no reason for north korea to be concerned. so the united states latest joint military drills with. missiles being fired into the sea of japan to be eighteen strategic bombers also carried out large five tests on the training range of the korean peninsula fighter jets from south korea and also japan joined which according to the u.s. was to demonstrate the commitment to defending our. tests which mock warhead was successfully destroyed but tests cost american taxpayers almost two hundred
fifty million dollars another splatted two months time you see lou rockwell let's go to him we asked this will come to the right well whether there might be other reasons the u.s. is stepping up its efforts against north korea. well there's a lot of money at stake billions and billions and billions of dollars a new military contracts the u.s. of course also wants to continue to justify its occupation of south korea its occupation of japan so occupation of. the presence of the seventh fleet. right up against china's shores that's that's what's going on so of course north korea is like any communist country very poor they were very poor country and they've poured i'm sure they've you know the show their support vast resources that should have gone into people's lives and bellies and homes and so forth into this horrible military business because they're terrified of being attacked with
a korea crisis showed no sign of abating seven ounces been talking to a former u.s. governor about the ups and downs of donald trump's new six months now in the white house is what's coming up later. i think it be a big mistake to do a military strike with north korea because we've got treaty relationships we've got thirty thousand american troops in south korea fifty thousand in japan and they'd be vulnerable twenty five million south koreans in seoul just the brushfire now we've got to deal with the north koreans having an i.c.b.m. that hits united states we shouldn't let that happen but i think the answer is diplomacy the answer is a six party countries that include russia you know in my view i think it's very important to have military advisors at the highest level of a cabinet but you know i'm a little concerned when the secretary of defense is a military person that actual security advisors a military person secretary of homeland security is a military person you know i think military persons for very good but you know
there has to be a balance and i think the president is abdicating some of his diplomatic leadership . a little bit too much in my view. right ahead here the iraqi city of mosul is declared free from eisel but it's come to a big cost who will tell you more about. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected . so if you want to be president. some want to be.
again the iraqi prime minister's travel to the city of mosul to declare victory over islamic state now that the terror groups form a strongholds been recaptured the p.m.'s call void traveled through mosul where only a small pocket of militants now remain there expected to be defeated soon as the news out from the celebration sprang up nationwide to mark the victory. of the most operation success has also been widely celebrated across the media to. it is not often on the show that we can break good news about iraq but today is one of those days the country's prime minister arrived in mosul today to declare a great victory as he joined his troops to celebrate in the city they've lost many
comrades along the way but today the iraqi security forces were firing their weapons in celebration claiming victory over their right the iraqi military along with u.s. support launched a campaign to liberate mosul from my celeste october since then human rights groups though have been raising serious concerns about the civilian casualties being caused by the coalition forces.
human rights watch told us more about the price paid by us civilians for mosul's liberation. operation to retake mosul particularly believe the west of this city and that's been raging very wary has come at an incredibly high cost we've seen much of the west of the city completely destroyed by ground fire and by airstrikes and we've seen a mass nice bike in civilian casualties thousands of civilians being wounded and being killed in the fighting so sold in the city has really paid a price for this operation. we were calling particularly on the u.s. led coalition to take more care in the way that it is conducting its bombing
campaign and clear to kuli the types and sizes of bombs that excusing to drop because of these large balls that are being dropped more and more frequently we've seen a massive increase in civilian casualties on the ground. unfortunately the general feeling among the coalition and the iraqi government is that because the momentum to finish the operation has been on their side they've wanted to use all means to get it done as quickly as possible and as a result we haven't seen them willing to for example take certain types of weapons completely off the table so as to better protect civilians. and cern's are that would be civilian casualties we don't see accountability we don't see american commanders taking responsibility and we don't see compensation for the victims. next up former national intelligence director james clapper now saying the u.s.
media is being tricked by russia into publishing fake news that softer stay with me network b.c. you said they'd received information on a story they suspected had been forged is more of an explanation. at first glance it was just unbelievably red hot. if by any chance this document is real it is so sensitive so classified that i cannot show it to you that it's actually with just a cli difficult to validate something like this first things first kudos to rachel maddow for spotting red flags and that apparently fake documents and questioning the source this fight the potentially explosive headline let's just say it took quite a while for many in the mainstream media to do this with two former officials knowledgeable about the situation tells c.n.n. sources familiar with the matter tell the p.c. dues which of sources are telling us on the condition of anonymity sources oh
because they're hiding behind this and they can now do you see us doing things does that mean that you're just going to attack sources to be exact over six months of nonstop coverage alleging trump russia collusion based on unnamed sources anonymous officials are leaked but unverified documents many of which turn out to be inaccurate or simply false according to meto someone out there is on a mission to discredit journalists one way to stab in the heart aggressive american reporting on that subject is to lay traps for american journalists who are reporting on it tricked news organizations into reporting what appears to be evidence of what happened and then after the fact to blow that reporting up and who would be so evil as to leave behind a trail of bread crumbs just to trick news organizations i don't know the source of this document on all but it is what i've read in the media but that's certainly within the realm of possibility that it came from the russian there you have it it's been russia all along has been fueling these news reports about themselves
case solved i can't wrap my brain around exactly how this this exactly would feed into a pro russian approach narrative to submit forged documents let you say that they got forged documents let's assume. that's true ascertain that ascertain the source of them and then you have a story that's what the issue should do rather than engaging in cheesy speculation which is unworthy of first grade journalism nobody knows where it came from nobody even knows if it's true it's it's just absurd it's like look do your homework research this stuff and get back to us if it's true then and then put up the evidence and let's talk about it and discuss it like reasonable people until then please just be quiet. here next letter by the life threatening dangers of reporting the news from inside a wards of. a
batch or sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last turn. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry 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 day. but then my feelings started to change you talked about more like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our kids and i secretly promised to never be like it's one does not leave the funeral the same as
one enters the mind it's consumed with this one to. speak to us there are no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker. when lawmakers manufacture consent to sell it to the public well. when the ruling classes protect themselves. the family larry go around the list certainly the one percent. who ignore middle of the room signals. the real news is really cold. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporate
my. goal. was a bit of. a lot of b.s. too he said well at the kind of mushy finality and i don't want to let the auto about how much more i'd let her be honest and the half of the fish emily i shall get a letter i learned to whom i had that that's between education obviously. so it's not so much so much so that. he. was before this was useful to you but the law to be sure he doesn't feel. that they've been released and unfairly documented sentence in the one window with the family left for us with your friend just obviously i've told you. all my life and what had.
