we've been documenting for many months now of actually visual executions by the rocky security forces both federal police forces as well as a 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. these latest allegations come just days after another arrives craig thomas day international blame the u.s. led coalition for thousands of civilian deaths during the battle for my fil it said the coalition's actions may amount to war crimes u.s. state department's but someone was grilled on the issue on thursday it 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 going to amnesty or

another human rights group group comes out with a report on a country that you don't like if they like north korea or syria you are and they don't so those governments when they do that your words you guys accept it 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 in 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 maj and i'm not going to characterize it that way at all ok i think we've been over this now we have repeatedly raised our concerns with the u.s. government in the great command operations and for aren't some also really for example about very many of these that we are continuing to document the iraqi
10:04 am
government forces i should say that the interior ministry in iraq has promised the investigating these particular reviews just that they promised to investigate prior videos showing severe abuses by iraqi government forces are planned 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. to one international tribunal that mistreatment of anybody never just even if they were isis fighters they should not be street is why we have international laws that are going to separate us from isis that's why we can say the international better than us because we don't need. the majority of americans now view north korea as the greatest threat to u.s. national security coming even ahead of islamic state that's according to
10:05 am
a new poll it come after pyongyang's latest ballistic missile test artie's caleb maupin reports from the streets of new york. 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 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
10:06 am
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 i says russia iran or saudi arabia what about the relationship between trump and china russia korea i do you think korea is a threat. well it's pretty obvious they want to destroy they have 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
10:07 am
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 there are imminent threat i think that they can start something however that can cause 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 there undertook to build what they're both unpredictable i think they have the ability of the atomic weapon i think right now i just is more of a threat the north korea but you know 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's hyping threats about north korea is a big big time i mean i'm going to just i think that it's it's fear mongering you sit down and you watch fox news ever since you don't do all these more entertainment now it's more they just want to keep you glued to the t.v.
10:08 am
screen to see what's going to happen next is up 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. nounless just look at whether north korea's nuclear program really is as dangerous as the media seems to make out north korea claims it has a number of nuclear warheads estimated to be ten but doesn't yet have any missiles capable of sending a warhead over a launch distance the further is they've got a test missile is nine hundred thirty kilometers which falls well short of reaching the u.s. this all means that in a fact north korea has no active strategic nuclear forces investigative journalist tim sharp believes the media scaremongering the united states. public has
10:09 am
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 developments 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 explain 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 basically. if young child in the austrian city of salzburg is heating partial for some pork at lunch time then they're going to be disappointed i think it's off the menu in fact it's been missing from it for five years but isn't it come to light in the last week of the parents filed

10:11 am
a reason why the mayor of salt 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 to respect our culture it's a trick from the far right who perpetuated this thing about muslims then outsiders 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 the one side who thinks we should proceed to a kind of appeasement strategy to accommodate muslims in europe and to make sure that the feel 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 a major political conflict muslims are not alien to societies that are early to
10:12 am
germany or france or the united kingdom all russia and anybody who tries to divide communities anybody. it's to perpetuate this hatred inherent ated 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. especially left wing politicians very much afraid of of being called islam or for weak question austria switzerland you know we all see an inherently anti muslim agenda in those spaces the rights of muslims are being taken away the freedoms of muslims are being taken away and yet still we are people out there suggesting that some our muslims are getting preferential treatment it's an absolute lie and should be called off for what it is. stunning final rehearsal for one of the world's top shows and away just outside moscow and

according to russia's representative he says attitudes towards the syrian president a changing. appreciates. during the latest round of talks the opposition didn't want some mention any need for assad's immediate resignation or for the removal of the legitimate syrian government that's very significant because apparently even the radical opposition and most of their foreign sponsors finally realize that peace in syria needs to be established first and only then can there be any negotiation of a political reform. with islamic state using ground both in iraq and syria it's not only foreign fighters who've been fleeing the former health but also women who became the wives of the terrorists here's the second part of the testimony about what life is like inside i feel you can find the first part on our website a new chip page. and there were a lot of horrors in places where women live kids had rashes lice and when they got

10:19 am
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 watchability 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 a stronghold for the al qaeda linked militant group al-shabaab so what's in it for china officially it's to boost the thousands of troops and millions of dollars beijing has poured in to assist us please keep the efforts in africa from the base will help jointed to better fulfill its international obligation in somali waters such as carrying out school missions providing humanitarian aid it will also
10:20 am
benefit in social and economic development and enable china to make for the contribution in safeguarding peace and stability enough. the base also helps secure china's fast economic interests in africa with beijing investing in so many key infrastructure projects wrote the continent that is why china is joining the crowd of global powers of ready operating in djibouti washington spilt its biggest four thousand strong base on the continent as you can see marked in blue here on the map france has one thousand eight hundred troops there six hundred japanese marines are 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 chinese. one day will be. between them and you know to do one be the one to do field between them and you

know to do with the north wind that i do soon and pollution in them so that the big came to do it would be you know to lose japan. or north of mother the news with. the news. but also the good news for the region and that's what i was told but if you talk to them there most of the people of the power of the part of the input of. 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. and democratic politicians and much of the media have pointed to that encounter as evidence of the trump team's collusion with moscow during the election campaign. one connected lawyer who met with donald trump jr last year this woman is the russian government lawyer and he did know it was information gleaned by the russian
10:22 am
government he took a meeting with a russian lawyer was going actions to the kremlin after being told she might have information helpful to the campaign. trying to was initially contacted by an intermediary who talked about handing over sensitive information on hillary clinton it apparently originated from the quote crown prosecutor of russia that position does not exist so it's believed he was referring to the prosecutor general r.t. spoke exclusively with the international communications chief at the prosecutor's office and then a screen in. 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 the us such
10:23 am
contacts can only happen so all 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 need skier 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 the russian prosecutor general's office and the u.s. department of justice. so if we need to share information to resolve american colleagues we send it to the justice department. emmanuelle mccrone try to wow his guest donald trump at this year's best field day parade by getting a marching band to belt out of punchy rendition of french electro do you would it

get lucky donald less than impressed it was. the to. the to. the as well as. the two. trams behavior has sometimes triggered waves of indignation both in the media and among the public some commentators think it may have contributed to the fall in his approval ratings and yet many of his key policies are not only pretty popular but also similar to those of us or barack obama whose ratings of the start of his presidency was sky high artie's jacqueline looks at why the two opposites so
10:25 am
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 and shit of any assets i have is by temperament oh just slide shows. i'm really rich trust me i'm like a smart person i think i'm much more humble than you would understand. if you compare term 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
10:26 am
first term we ended the war in iraq. in my second term i will win the war on christmas. eve 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 presence is shockingly similar take their stances on america's place in the global arena. that no amount of american lives could result in the political just remember that lies at the heart of someone else's civil war we cannot be a 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. . up next a latte the latest edition all the kaiser reports. on .
