thanks for joining. a standoff between the rights groups and the u.s. military. coalition actions during the liberation of mosul that's all heating up it's after amnesty international report accusing the coalition of partial responsibility for civilian casualties a senior u.s. commander called the allegations disrespectful. the iraqi security forces have put the safety of civilians is the absolute centerpiece of the liberation of the city in providing support to the iraqi security forces we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that when we strike we only kill the enemy by using explosive weapons with wide area effects and disproportionate airstrikes in densely populated
areas the u.s. led coalition and iraqi forces fail to adapt their tactics to the reality on the ground during the anti eisel operation in mosul iraq and u.s. led forces used unguided artillery mortars and improvised bombs these weapons are highly imprecise and according to human rights watch their use in a heavily populated areas like mosul can be quote unlawfully indiscriminate the coalition also used white phosphorus which in rare cases is allowed under international law. a former counterterrorism intelligence officer says the use of white phosphorus in populated areas could be considered a war crime. if these weapons such as white phosphorus or. tool such as white phosphorus are used as weapons in civilian areas it is likely to constitute a war crime in any case because you are using a weapon that is an incendiary against civilians or in
a way that is reckless as to whether civilians are endangered and therefore will be court considered because it is a disproportionate use of that tool as a weapon the obligation legally is to use weapons in a proportionate amount of minimize the risk as far as is possible to civilians but what we see again and again isn't just the use of heavy weapons such as a five hundred thousand pound two hundred fifty five hundred kilo weight bombs and so on being used heavy weapons from across. the indiscriminate unguided weapon such as rocket launchers such as artillery and mortars these can be quite accurate but many of them on not we saw a position weapons being used by the americans a couple of months ago the target was to kill two isis snipers and yet one hundred four civilians were admitted body americans to have been killed in that attack even using precise weapons. after the victory over i still in most
school u.s. commanders warn the iraqi government about the possible reemergence of an upgraded version of a terrorist organization and i'm up on investing in. making sure that i still doesn't set up shop again might be just as hard as getting rid of it in the first place model everyone is celebrating the liberation of mosul a top u.s. commander in iraq says to be aware of isis two point zero if we keep isis two point zero from emerging the iraqi government is going to have to do something pretty significantly different so what exactly should the iraqi government do differently any advice i think the primary condition that caused the rise of isis was the fact that a significant. portion of the iraqi population this case the sunni's disaffected the iraqis have to make sure after isis is defeated that all iraqis view the government in baghdad is their government so sectarian violence is the main
destabilizing factor now didn't everything start to go wrong a few years back after a certain little military intervention you know iraq invasion one point zero the consequence was that if we were trying to rehabilitate the country from those elements would trying to rake spicy terry in violence and that is what we did not foresee so after reducing a formerly stable country to over a decade and a half of chaos the usa now warns baghdad that it better start building bridges and enforcing reconciliation the usa for its part intends to stay the iraqi government has expressed an interest in having the u.s. forces and coalition forces remain after the defeat of isis our government is equally interested in that as are several coalition governments have expressed an interest in joining in that effort so all of this help with sectarian violence the violence in iraq and syria has only made the long standing feud between the sunni and the shia worse on top of that you have the kurds and their upcoming
independence referendum a lot of this sounds like shutting the barn door after the horse has already bolted it's almost like a case of national amnesia we forget what happened in two thousand and three when president bush said mission accomplished we've done everything we need to do great victory the reality is that just created the problems that we're still fighting today so the idea that we're going to do the same thing which is to defeat so-called enemy there and then remain indefinitely and somehow the result will be different i think is is an absolute fantasy so we won't necessarily turn iraq into switzerland if we leave but it's inevitable but that somehow the iraqis will have. solve their own problems in one way or the other so stay or go it looks like either way the united states will have to make the best of a bad choice caleb mopp and art see new york. the pentagon has briefed the german military on the new f.
thirty five fighter jet as the european nation considers it as a possible replacement for its aging tornado warplanes jaclyn virgo now examines whether the f. thirty five would make a good substitute the f. thirty five was meant to be the ultimate aircraft the swiss army knife fighter jets ready and equipped for everything the project has been years in the making work done by the brightest minds from all over the globe and has cost billions and billions of dollars. looks awesome right well the creation of this jack of all trades plane has been a bumpy road the project has seen numerous drafts due to various issues including having the blueprints stolen at one point and the budget has expanded over time as
well nearly doubling the initial figure of thirty five program programs record of performance has been both a scandal and a tragedy that his experience issues with cost is going to become completely under fordable aircraft deliveries amount to no more than a mere trickle relative to the original promises of the program what's going to happen with that airplane is going to die slow when i get to his and so what is so great about the f. thirty five it must be perfect for air combat well now according to a report released by the department of defense it displays objectionable or on acceptable flying qualities but surely it has top notch persuasion accuracy. i'm given no only if the target is clearly marked and undefended the department of defense says the f. thirty five will be forced to fly much closer to the ground to engage targets and those will likely need to be only lightly defended ones at most well at least it must be great for a pilot to fly wrong again. ok
last try has it been a good value well now it's been dubbed the most expensive plane anywhere ever i think you know the answer i know it's production cost could yet again another seven percent hitting four hundred six point five billion dollars just for a bit of perspective belgium's entire g.d.p. in two thousand and fifteen was four hundred and fifty four billion dollars so with all of that in mind you think the project might have been reconsidered already i think the united states government is to fall too far along with what the f. thirty five just to abandon it at this point you have other governments now that have committed in there whether nato and nato. committed to the
thirty it's now become a project that's too big to fail but surely when so much money has been thrown at it there must be something to be proud of what is it good it's not good at anything what sort of turkey hey turkey can fly at least a little bit about something jack of r t washington d.c. . the us president is due in paris on thursday for a two day visit though it is the big disagreements with the french leader i don't know of anyone. to hold a meeting later today and attend the annual parade on france's national day on friday. i have friends are going to love friends love it any more they're not going he said i wouldn't go to france france is no longer france france is no longer france paris is all the birth. president trouble visit paris to celebrate the president is scheduled to visit paris president heads to
the discord between the presidents might be eased on thursday evening with a bit of wining and dining as micron is poised to take to the famous eiffel tower for a rare blue lobster dinner meanwhile some say the upcoming meeting is a battle between two superheroes so we hit the streets of paris to find out what people think about the two men's alleged superpowers. captain planet. he's welcome to america mr france captain orange and super villain. you still need to have super my career on. the judges he repeats most pumped up above to put oneself it is a pistol. true of flowers and a good sophie's many people. many pets their money is only in their will on the mission will they. play this toy or. the place you mention don't push him jumping.
up and get to know. you should the book is that to come the superman. movie can come out in the book that it's ok michael ok just like that you know him you know came out compose. more of your worldwide headlines justin. we've got these enormous international problems. we've got issues in syria we've got issues with our gratian we've got issues that you've created a. lot of those issues to be solved i think without collaboration with that with the president that's why i think when you have something that's cardew for brotherhood suspicious might seem pretty neutral to your best or there are those
suspicions. as a growing backlash against social media and actually the smarts the most independents the most interesting people particularly young people are actually giving up social media and i think over the next few years what we're going to see is that only loses the be left on social move. credit as one of the basic instruments to drive an economy but it can also lead to tragedy i did it i took a lying down just i came to god and meant that the text i came to god and it was fire not. many lives have been broken by excessive debt and the banks got you into trouble and only big bankers come. and they're going to go on the
banks but i just didn't think of the ordinary men who lost money through the back under don't buy creditors people see no future bad face and have you know you become ill you turn to job your relationship breaks down you become a casualty is death a lifelong trap or is there a way out oh it's actually going to bed hungry no i wouldn't like to ditch a bill for so much for a few more. joining us for the program today. analogies and u.s. politics have become something of a trend this year at this time of the victim was fox news host tucker carlson for suggesting the u.s.
should work with russia in syria but i just accept that people who are bad people share interest and you sound like the chinese leader of the one hundred thirty eight saying hillary hasn't attacked us i think he's insane he you can think it's insane all you want he's you compared me to a nazi apologist because i asked a simple question he is as bad as hitler so i don't know trump stepped into office the furor comparisons started lighting up now the scrubwoman it's. weird i know the trauma trump being there reminded me of hitler addressing the nazi party but i feel better in these streets i must try did far i do like ninety percent of what he says i'm like this guy gets it however protesters may have been given a taste of their own medicine they were filmed cheering a rally speech by a prankster comprised entirely of quotes by adults. there is one thing we must
never forget richard you can never replace them their life is like a mirror if you profit from that if you smile they return. donald trump seems to think they are total figures off well i tell it frequently enough it will be only it's not the truth that matters. political analyst charles alltel told us the extreme allegations against trump are being used as a distraction. just think there's an element on the left that is very fond of gaslighting that is to say when trouble is approaching they come up with the most incendiary comments to distract from the real damage that's going to come the hillary clinton side they've come up with this enormous canard they get the press whipped up and over here our mainstream press moves in lockstep so if the theme comes down that we've got to compare trumped it were you'll see the washington post
do it the new york times the mainstream media c.n.n. and cetera and i don't recall i wasn't following it continually during obama's eight years i don't recall protracted assaults against obama under a theory that he was some kind of hitler to call somebody hitler may that's a very serious accusation to make if you know anything at all about history and so i think the people who are making those accusations today should be ashamed of themselves. the u.s. tested its missile system on tuesday by shooting down a simulated incoming into media range ballistic missile similar to the one allegedly being developed in north korea meantime a pyongyang has warned that any kind of military confrontation will quote inevitably lead it to the u.s. to self-destruction and valve to turn america into a pile of ash although the drill was planned months ago it is being seen as a response to north korea's latest missile test that was one week ago and after
that test trump expressed dissatisfaction with china for not putting more pressure on pyongyang artie's emilie's to now looking at how washington is trying to get others to solve the pyongyang problem. even before the eleven missile tests north korea conducted this year the u.s. has long demanded beijing to do more to curb pyongyang's nuclear program this rhetoric even got a term of its own the china responsibility theory which angered beijing if you don't don't change usually conjunction or is neither a focal points of contradictions over the issue no real driving force behind the current escalation of tensions on the peninsula if china is striving to put out the foil while the other is a fueling the flame how can china's if it's achieve expected outcomes how can the tension be eased to be fair china is only major diplomatic ally and key economic partner so makes sense for the u.s. and others to urge beijing to use its leverage on north korea china and other
regional partners should also step up their efforts to help shove this security situation we need to work together to deal with some of the pressing difficult issues such as the threat from north korea but is it fair to expect beijing to ease tensions on the peninsula while washington fans the crisis by flexing its military muscles in the region every chance it gets. on top of that we are talking about trump and kim two politicians who have little to agree on except maybe their desire for attention and this is how people think north korea does it you want to see what all. you're. doing and what. this baby some attention. china understands what the p.r. government actually thinks that came junk government thinks they believe that
nuclear weapons are absolutely essential for their own security the u.s. government carries out war exercises simulating the destruction of north korea twice a year they just did a nuclear bomb dropping drill. the chinese never had the ability to tell north korea what to do donald trump either did not understand this another words of failure on his part to actually understand the relationship or he was just trying to do arm twisting against china but we can see now from china's statement that they have run out of patience that they consider it to be an abrogation of u.s. responsibility to find a way to come to a solution in the korean crisis bear in mind that north korea also said its ruling to return to the negotiating table if the u.s. is willing to meet the hermit state half way namely to stop large scale joint military exercises with south korea and this is how the u.s. responded they know that has to be me or station the secretary said he's not going to negotiate his way back to the negotiating table i mean is that so instead of the
china responsibility theory perhaps washington should stop provoking north korea and take heed of the chinese proverb don't fan the flames support the fire. of lot of my opponents recent trip to a monastery got the tabloids gossiping after a lady in red was apparently spotted in the back of his car they're all isn't quite as it seems. the.
