iraqi officials say they are investigating reports of. but we were able to verify the images taken in the videos with satellite imagery to
2:02 am
show that they are fact around the areas of mosul that they appear to be in. we don't really have much information about the videos in particular but they do match pieces that we've been documenting for many months now of actually visual executions by the rocky security forces both federal police forces as well as the popular mobilization forces there are really many many cases iraqi soldiers executing suspected isis militants torturing and abusing family members of suspected isis militants so sadly i have to say that these are not new or surprising although these latest allegations come just days after another rights group amnesty international blamed the u.s. led coalition for thousands of civilian deaths during the battle for more civil and u.s. state department spokeswoman was grilled on the issue by reporters on thursday. it
2:03 am
seems to be and this is not just something that unique to this administration but for many over the course of the last four or five thought of instructions when amnesty or another human rights group group comes out with a report on a country that you don't like their life north korea or syria you're and they don't consult those governments when they do that you're for it's you guys except it was you know and you even talk about it and praise the reports from from from the podium and say this is you know we can't relate to chemical weapons in syria but when they come out with a report that is us and a country that is a madman i have to say we want is that on that report like hartmann of defense puts together a very thorough humanitarian excuse me a very thorough civilian casualty list this is not a case does not a situation where you accept reports that if you like the results but do not accept them as i'm not going to characterize it that way at all ok i think we've been over that's now we have repeatedly raised our concerns with the u.s. government in the great compound operations and will aren't something else really
2:04 am
for example about very many of them says that we are continuing to document iraqi government sources i should say that the interior ministry in iraq has promised the investigate these particular reveals just that they promised to investigate prior videos showing severe abuses by iraqi government forces plan to date we have never see the iraqi government actually hold any soldiers accountable for these abuses that are being documented what would really be best for the iraqi government and the syrian government to ratify the world statute and during the i.c.c. so that we can bring music concert to an international court of you all the mistreatment of anybody never just even if they are isis fighters they should not be street is that's why we have international laws that are going to separate us from isis that's why we can say the international community better than isis because we don't mistreat needs. the

majority of. north korea. the u.s. national security with. when asked about what was the greatest foreign threat to the united states forty percent of americans was to north korea now that's not really surprising given all the talk there's been in the media about the danger posed by kim and his friends but. with the united states north korean dictator kim jong un threatens the united states with nuclear weapons and tensions are really inching to the point of war so how much are americans really in danger from north korea their closest neighbor south korea says that intelligence shows that north korea really doesn't have the capability to carry out an intercontinental ballistic missile strike considering how north korea does not have any testing facilities for reentry technology the
2:06 am
agency believes north korea has not yet secured that technology yet north korea is still listed as the greatest threat greater than i still and that's despite the growing threat of radicalization and homegrown terror recently described by homeland security the number of post nine eleven homegrown terror plots in the united states has served so many aspects of this terrorist thing obviously you've got the homegrown terrorist i don't know how to stop that i don't know how to detect that so why are people so afraid of north korea we decided to find out the greatest foreign threat to the united states. everything. even the. north korea tyranny was career russia chinese ice is russia iran or saudi arabia what about the relationship between hope and china russia korea i do you think korea is a threat. well it's pretty obvious they want to destroy they have
2:07 am
a very. hostile dictator it's very offensive towards united states that is to the whole thing without a warm beer say have the missiles and they tested it and. it's scary you know i don't know i mean are they really a threat are they will what are they really are they really going to shoot all the missiles i mean if we're going to have a nuclear holocaust i think that's a little bit much you know. but i don't know with north korea is. as big of a threat as we're being as being perceived i don't feel dead that they are eminent threat i think that they can start something however that can spy caught globally what makes north korea a greater threat than i so. i don't know that's a good it's a great question i would think they're under dictabelt what they're both unpredictable i think they have the ability of the atomic weapon i think right now isis is more of a threat the north korea but in a maybe ten fifteen years down the road north korea could be more of a threat i think it's a genuine threat if you like the media is hyping threats about north korea it's a big big time i mean i'm going to just i think that it's so it's it's fear
2:08 am
mongering you sit down and you watch fox news m.s.m. . all its more entertainment now it's more they just want to keep you glued to the t.v. screen to see what's going to happen next to media is hyping anything they can hype in order to get people to watch at this point u.s. president franklin delano roosevelt said the only thing we have to fear is fear itself and perhaps the most dangerous fears are those that are manufactured and not based on credible threats. r.t. new york north korea claims it has a number of nuclear warheads estimated to be ten by pyongyang does not yet have any missiles capable of sending a warhead over a large distance and five before they fired a test missile as nine hundred thirty kilometers which is not nearly close enough to get all the way to america this all means that in effect north korea has no active strategic nuclear forces now we are starting shock and investigative journalist how great the north korean threat really is the united states.
2:09 am
public has been has been subject to a massive propaganda campaign war is you know coming tomorrow to korea the idea that somehow north korea is more of a danger though you know comes from this propaganda that north korea's aiming is building weapons in an offensive way and this is trying wants to attack the united states and then north korea's development of weapons or aimed right at the rate at all our cities and they are ready at any moment to attack us there is no background at all explaining to people you know how we got here what the role the united states has been in this crisis what could be done to get out of it it's all just scaremongering. just on tempest the hour here in moscow a pork byron on kindergarten menus a star in controversy in the austrian city of salzburg the rule has been
2:10 am
a force for five years but only now came to light this was just last week of the parents filed a request with the mayor's office they were told the decision was made on health grounds but also to meet the needs of muslim children. parents in austria have got beef with the authorities after pork was given the chop from kindergarten. it's been missing from menus for five years but now it's been spotted all strains are in . your thirty's claim children simply prefer chicken in carrots the dish was dropped due to health reasons other things the news of muslim children that's one line this left the norm sweet all sour taste in parents' mouths and those polled say they now strongly oppose the decision despite the mayor's claim there's been no official decree is still new some of finding difficult to digest. some are rather contrasting opinions from a christian at none of the chamber of commerce in vienna and mohammed shufti the
2:11 am
ramadan foundation. i cannot really see a reason why the mayor of of salts work is denying austrian children access to normal austrian pork dishes pork dishes are part of our culture if somebody wants to live here actually they should respect our culture it's a trick from the far right who perpetuated this thing about muslims being outside is you know getting preferential treatment i don't support i second you know i'm not criticizing them for having a good thought you know i'm trying to be inclusive but i think you can't be inclusive if you exclude a particular community there's the one side who thinks we should proceed to a kind of a peace man strategy to accommodate muslims in europe and to make sure that the few like at home and others who think wait wait a minute this is europe this is our country these are our countries we're not muslims we want to keep our identity so this is part of
2:12 am
a major political conflict muslims are not alien to societies that are early to germany or france or the united kingdom or russia and anybody who tries to divide communities anybody tries to perpetuate this a hatred inherent hatred that we see i think should be called off or is it's racism and xenophobia against community there isn't the strategy of the muslims is took out call any criticism on them islamophobia and now especially left wing politicians oh mr very much afraid of of being called islamophobia of course you're a austria switzerland you know we are seen an inherently anti muslim agenda and in those spaces the rights of muslims are being taken away the freedoms of muslims are being taken away and yet still we have people out there suggesting a similar muslims again preferential treatment it's an absolute lie and it should be called out for what it is. china is deploying troops
2:13 am
overseas military base in djibouti. djibouti a small country in the horn of africa that often slips through the mainstream international media's radar but this week it made it to the global spotlight and here's why two chinese navy warships left port john john on tuesday to launch beijing's first ever overseas military base in djibouti but out of all places in the world watch your beauty well for starters the tiny african country provides access through the red sea to the suez canal one of the busiest shipping routes in the world another key aspect of djibouti location is its proximity to potential crisis areas namely yemen where saudi arabia is fighting who the rebels in an ongoing civil war and somalia
2:14 am

stationed nearby and saudi arabia is also building a base in the tiny east african state with all these different countries flexing their military muscles almost literally side by side is djibouti becoming the next playground for the world's leading powers the. one day there will be. that i did between them and united is that one day difference that i dis in between them and united states will turn into a host one that i do soon and that positioning themselves because of that that they came to see you next if this mostly is pushing japan through the ottoman self said so or no to money to defend islam the simplicity doesn't come out the defined nice little possible out of that but also if you didn't get as far as the region its limits and i just was a little bit but each of them that thinking for them the national interest the support addict. the power of the projector that incidents in that region thanks for joining us i fall for the program here analogy international in an exclusive
2:16 am
interview with the russian prosecutor general's office rejecting allegations of involvement in a meeting between donald trump jr and a russian lawyer back without story and more in just a moment. here's what people have been saying about redacted and. the only show i go out of my way to. really packed a punch. is the john oliver a party of married. parents better than. you see people you've never heard of. jack tonight president of the world bank very. seriously send us an e-mail. basic income when you have an economy around the world that rewards imagination and monetizes free thought free thought free movement of capital and all the intermediary forces go out of business
2:17 am
a lot of bankers lose their jobs a lot of politicians lose their job the nation state collapses as we know it and people are as free as their money because right now money is a lot freer than people. drowning us for this program the russian prosecutor general's office has denied claims of involvement in a meeting between a russian lawyer and donald trump jr last year u.s. democrat politicians and much of the media have pointed to as evidence of the teams could lose and with moscow jury in the election campaign. from one connected lawyer who met with donald trump jr last year to this woman as the russian government
2:18 am
lawyer and he did know it was information gleaned by the russian government he took a meeting with a russian lawyer was going to actions to the kremlin after being told she might have information helpful to the campaign. or was initially contacted by an intermediary who talked about how ending of a sensitive information on hillary clinton apparently originated from the quote crown prosecutor of russia that position does not exist so it's believed he was referring to the general prosecutor and l.t. spoke exclusively with the international communications chief the prosecutor's office the newsgroup news. some foreign media wrote about the meeting between donald trump jr and russian lawyer and italian vessel needs sky which reportedly took place last june and possible involvement of the russian prosecutor general's office in brokering the meeting how would you comment on this information i would not want to comment on something that is totally untrue. you have to understand the office of the prosecutor general does not share information of these individuals in
2:19 am
the us such contacts can only happen through official channels as stipulated by international agreements and after a formal request. submitted by a prosecution agency so are you saying that the prosecutor general's office could not have sent vessel needs it's insane to think that the prosecutor general's office would use a private lawyer to transfer information any exchanges of information about criminal cases ease down through the country's official agencies with their russian prosecutor general's office and the u.s. department of justice. so if we need to share information to resolve our american colleagues we send it to the justice department you can watch this entire interview at your own leisure on our web site r.t. dot com. president donald trump popularity it's taken a bit of
2:20 am
a beating lately and yet many of his key policies are not only quite popular but also very similar to those of his predecessor barack obama who's initial approval ratings were sky high r.t. jacqueline virgo now assessing why the two are perceived so differently. according to a recent poll president trump's approval ratings are low really low but it seems that people don't so much just like him as a president as much as they just don't like him as a person sixty five percent of those who disapprove of trump said it was because of his personality while only sixteen percent objected to his policies ok trump is undeniably a one of a kind president who has said and done some awkward things i think by shingo greatest passion of any assets i have is by temperament oh just slide shows. a really rich history i'm like a smart person i think i'm much more humble than you would understand. if you
2:21 am
compare to him to his predecessor barack obama the figures were almost the exact opposite at the beginning of obama's first term sixty five percent disliked his policies while fourteen percent didn't care for his character a large portion of america really fell in love with who he was. in my first term when the war in iraq. in my second term i will win the war on christmas . you pretty tough guy are you a tough guy you look like you're pretty tough and and so you just gotta keep on going. but for often being perceived as polar opposites the two actually have a number of political moves in common everyone remembers trump's controversial travel ban that affected people from seven muslim majority countries while the obama administration deemed the same states as areas of concern and put travel restrictions on their citizens and some of the rhetoric we've seen from both
2:22 am
presence is shockingly similar take their stances on america's place in the global arena. that no amount of american lives can resolve the political just remember that lies at the heart of someone else's civil war we cannot be the policeman of the world and of course those promises to help out the average joe we're going to bring back made in the usa and we're going have a lot of jobs come back we're going to have a lot of jobs made in america hopeful trend they're bringing jobs back from overseas as for trump the analysis of that gallup poll functions off with a rather somber prognosis for him they're rising that unless the president changes his unique style his numbers will continue to plummet it seems in this case everyone is judging this book by its cover r.t. washington d.c. . with islamic state losing ground both in iraq and syria the group is becoming of a less attractive to would be members and it's not only foreign fighters but the women who became the terrorists wives have also been fleeing the foremost
2:23 am
strongholds here's the second part of the testimonies about what life inside eisel is like you can find the first part on our website and our you tube page. down there in my luck that there were a lot of horrors in places where women live kids had rashes lice and when they got sick they didn't get treatment those places in iraq that were like real presence that it was absolutely disgusting to be there not much but one woman had contractions so she went to the chief and cinammon the woman was knocking at her door and crying for help but most of them i kicked her out saying that she wants to sleep and shouted i wish she were all dead but the woman went into the garden bleeding and stayed there until morning no one paid any attention to her in the morning hasn't her lying in the garden and will fight as if nothing happened as if she was just a dog if wives were treated this way others weren't even seen as human beings. at
