you are watching all t. international live from moscow i'm rosana lockwood thank you for joining us. now the wrong key interior ministry has launched a probe into the alleged killings of detainees in mosul months off to rights groups raise the alarm over a series of videos which appeared online a warning you may find some of the following images disturbing. this video ends with soldiers throwing a man off a high embankment they then opened fire on him as he lies on the ground human rights watch told us they were able to confirm that the incident was filmed in mosul. but we were able to verify the images taken in the videos satellite imagery to 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 iraqi security forces both federal police forces as well as the popular mobilization forces there are really many many cases iraqi soldiers executing the 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 well these latest allegations come after another rights group amnesty international blamed the u.s. coalition for thousands of civilian deaths during the battle for mosul it said the coalition's actions may amount to war crimes and u.s. state department spokesperson 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 or i and they don't consult those governments when they do the job for which you guys except as 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 rely 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 imagined 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 joint compound operations including for arts and australia for example about the very many advances that we are continuing to document by iraqi government forces i should say that the interior ministry in iraq has promised
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 seen a rock a government actually hold any soldiers accountable for these abuses that are being documented what would really be best is for the iraqi government and the syrian government to ratify the wrong statute and during the i.c.c. so that we can bring these agreements or to an international tribunal that mistreatment of anybody never justified even if they are isis fighters they should not be mistreated 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 me. with islamic state losing ground both in iraq and syria people are fleeing the formal strongholds including women who were forced to marry terrorists here's the second part of the testimonies about what life is like
inside the so-called caliph it. was in their mother 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 presents and it was absolutely disgusting to be there one woman had contractions so she went to the chief and so now the woman was bleeding knocking at our 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 the woman went into the garden bleeding and stayed there until morning no one paid any attention to her in the morning hasn't been lying in the garden and walked by as if nothing happened as if she was just a donkey if wives were treated this way others weren't even seen as human beings. at least that i still find so separated girls from married women and from slaves
lots of attention was paid to the girls men brought the make up just to sell them for fifteen thousand dollars virgins were sold for thirty thousand dollars some girls managed to escape to iraq but those who helped them were killed. i believe that my husband told me there is no release of the year no lore and that we must return home so we started planning how to escape. a little bought a ticket if in fact i knew what i saw was like i would never have gone and joined my cause been there. and my husband and i made a huge mistake when we came here and thank god we escaped. americans now few north korea as a greater threat than islamic state according to a new poll caleb maupin reports for 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 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 with its career russia chinese isis russia iran or saudi arabia and iraq 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 a very. hostile dictator it's very offensive towards united states that is to the whole thing without a warm beer stay have the missile and test 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 over 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 as a as big of a threat as we're being as being perceived i don't feel that that they're eminent threat i think that they can start something however that can strike 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 and i think they have the ability of the atomic weapon i think right now isis is more of a threat the north korea but again and 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 mean i just i think that it's so it's it's fear mongering you sit down and you watch fox news emissaries you don't they're all it's 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 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 they will mop and r.t. new york. well let's look at whether north korea's nuclear program really is as dangerous as people think the regime is believed to have ten nuclear warheads but its launch capability is limited the furthest north korea has fired a test mount missile is nine hundred thirty kilometers which falls well short of reaching b. u.s. investigative journalist tim shark believes the threat is being deliberately exaggerated the united states. public has been has been subject to a massive propaganda campaign that war is you know coming tomorrow to korea the idea that somehow north korea is more of a danger though you know comes in this propaganda that north korea is 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 can be done to get out of it it's all just scare mongering basis. you know the news this hour street riots overshadowed the g. twenty summit a week ago and handbag and now germany's interior minister is calling for potential troublemakers to be tacked. should be prevented from reaching demonstrations we should make them report to the police at specific times or if necessary. the ante g. twenty march and how bucks talented relatively peacefully but by evening it had spiraled out of control.
the new rules being proposed by the interior minister would dramatically expand the use of electronic tax at the moment they can only be ordered by a court and usually take the form of an ankle bracelet for people under curfew or released early from prison trackers also used in health care to monitor people with dementia but a german social scientist professor told us such devices would do nothing to stop riots ceases one of us is more symbolic and basically helpless measures announced by the government or by others in germany these are the seasonal roxanne's of violence which are due to some problems we have heard of mystically
grown under the present law it seems not to be legal it is helpless to make changes of the last which will not lead to the decider and see we have had such text for this long these who live with the list got rid of sin so this is more or less as the announcement without any effective misanthropes. china has established its best military base in africa that story and more after this short break. our.
local blogs telling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chickenhawk forcing you to fight the battles they're going. to do so to try to tell you that every gossip the public by. october doesn't tell me you are not cool enough to buy their product. these are the hawks that we along the border will watch.
welcome back now a poor kindergarten menus a staring controversy in the austrian city of salzburg the rule has been in force a five years but only came to light last week off the parents filed a request with the mayor's office they were told the decision was made on health grounds and also to meet the needs of most and children. parents in austria have got beef with the authorities after pork was given the chop from kindergartens has been missing from menus for five years but now it's been spotted austrians. over its thirties claim children simply prefer chicken and carrots the dish was drab due to health reasons among 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 news some are finding difficult to digest.
we had some contrasting views on this story from a member of the chamber of commerce in vienna and a muslim rights campaigner in the u k. i cannot really see 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 respect our culture it's a treat 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 the one side who thinks we should proceed to a kind of for peace and 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 germany or france or the united kingdom or russia and anybody who tries to divide communities anybody tries to perpetuate this hatred inherent hatred that we see i think should be called off or is it's racism and xenophobia against a community there isn't the strategy of the muslims is took out call any criticism on them islamophobia and now especially left wing politicians of almost very much afraid of of being called islamophobia a course europe 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 after war is. china is sending troops to its first or. military base in djibouti the small east african country already hosts troops from several foreign powers every sue explains it strategic importance 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 wide you pretty 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 the u.n. peacekeeping efforts in africa will be joining a two bit of fulfill its international obligation in somalia such as caring missions and providing humanitarian aid it will also benefit in suzhou and economic development and enable china to make for the contribution in safeguarding peace and stability in africa and the world the base also help 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 nine 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 the news one day if there will be. big soon between them and united is there one day the one thing i do sitting between them and united to do with the poor clinton i do sin and pollution in them so the cause of that that they came to deal with the united states all clues pushing japan will be out of the cell phones or not of one of the divine these political solution doesn't imo the fundies will pop or go out and. get us for a little bit in the political world the region but each of them thinking for the most the interests of the political the power of the pull of the infidels in the region. the french president all that all stops trying to tame donald trump at this
week's best steel day parade the man while mccrone got a marching band to play a punchy rendition of dull punks hit to get lucky the us president both seem less than impressed. with. her. or. her. work. many in the media were quick to point out that donald trump is far less comfortable with pop culture than his predecessor barack obama jacqueline du going to accept why the two u.s. presidents 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 shit of any assets i have is by temperament oh just slide shows. i'm really rich history 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 first term when the war in iraq. in my second term i will win the war on christmas
. eve you pretty tough guy are you 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 our own members trumps controversial travel ban that affected people from seven muslim majority countries while the obama administration did 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 though i'm out of american lives could result 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 u.s. 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 dokken book r.t. washington d.c. . final rehearsals for one of the world's biggest shows have taken place in moscow take racer just outside moscow here are some of the highlights. ah.
some of the finest aerobatic pilots from russia and more than twenty other countries are taking part in this year's max air show they're flying state to the jets and helicopters and putting new aircraft and combat systems to the test so tune in for all the action live on all t. when the show officially opens on tuesday. next in our team max kaiser talks about the life of blue collar workers in the u.s. stay with us for that. the war in yemen has its own distinct face is the face of a child emaciated by hunger sounds of yemeni children fighting off deaths they stand a chance. to
observe the events of the past few years and ask myself several times what's going on in my native germany. millions of refugees. u.s. intelligence agencies indiscriminately listening in on german citizens and the government. and once again judgment takes at least. this from various political parties and various independent experts and journalists . in an effort to understand just how independent germany really is when it comes to decision making. whether it acts on its own national interests ok or is out someone else's will. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around
corporations corporations run washington or washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. oh my skies are and this is going to be our first little summer solutions here the guys report it's all about the solutions as they say many people started twenty zero zero one seven twenty seventeen with what they thought was their solution to the problem of america not being so great again so
that is kind of the whole theme of our summer solution series is how to make america great again is kind of because as the u.s. empire as well i mean it is kind of neal liberalism in globalism under this u.s. superpower so it will extend out to other places in on its own to make america great again it means we've got to get rid of the old in with the new there's the millennial generation they're ready to take on political responsibility and we've seen seismic political upheaval all over the world in the united kingdom in america in france it's happening everywhere so this is the greatest moment for this generation this century to kick in like i said i think people voted for trump because i felt that america needed to be great again and i think that's why that slogan caught on i think that was a solution they thought they could vote for. hillary had stronger together that was her motto didn't make any sense they didn't vote for that solution but because they
did not vote for her solution on offer stronger together. the democratic party is having a meltdown you have to say they having a moat an emotional psychological breakdown we've seen it on the media. in two thousand and seventeen which is quite remarkable to me it looks a lot like fox news two thousand and nine obama was elected president they allowed this notion that he was somehow illegitimate kenyan born something very suspicious about him now we have m.s.m. b.c. led by rachel maddow and a whole media profitable industry emerging around pushing this conspiracy that trump is also illegitimate he's not american he's somehow kremlin a russian installed just like obama is not american there's nothing american about him and we've seen the same sort of results we saw in a few weeks.
