headlines on r.t. international president trump doubled down on his fire and fury threats to north korea despite wide criticism calls for deescalation of both. frankly the people where the that statement was. maybe it wasn't. even is it's a russian family who say they recognize a relative in a video. crew with an orphanage in. the u.k.
a group called it the x. muslim council which attended an elegy p.t. parade is blamed for feeding anti islamic hysteria here on the program we invite opposing sides to the. they are rampant just on the folbigg all good i say should take all responsible for promoting hatred against muslims to leave their religion and then be silent about. kin across the world being victimized by it was the mistake is an absurd requests. a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at the international in moscow with just off to talk on friday when the president has refused to back down on his threat to bring fire and fury to north korea they were made global coals for deescalation. the story break lee the people that would push the. that
statement was too tough maybe it wasn't tough enough to want to read. this and he gave one threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see it's a very terrifying question what could possibly be more intense than fire and fury when trump was asked he just ominously responded with you'll see but it is clear that he has no plans to back down whatsoever he's not a dare to state has nothing to do with there that's a statement now trumps remarks are just the latest in a series of aggressive exchanges between the president n.p.r. news but has escalated to the point of north korea state media outlining a possible plan to attack the u.s. territory of guam a threat that trump says kim jong own will not get away with and when the question was posed to the president if americans should be frightened by the current state of affairs trump said in fact the opposite is true that north korea should be the
nervous party here if. north korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack. of anybody that we love what we represent do or our allies or us they could be very very nervous i'll tell you why they should be very diverse those things will happen to them like they never thought possible north korea better get their act together where they're going to be trouble like few days should ever have been to trouble in this world now while term profuse a comment on whether the u.s. was considering a preemptive strike against pyongyang he spoke about the importance of the u.s. military and his plans to drastically beef up their defense budgets by quote many billions of dollars and this is all because of the threat posed by north korea and a strange twist will trump spoke of strengthening america's arsenal he also warned that nuclear power is the world's greatest threat stating that he would like to denuclearize the world get on wednesday he tweeted about the us
a strong and powerful nucular stockpile hinting that it could be used if necessary so while other nations are still pushing for a democratic resolution threats flying back and forth seem to be pushing the world closer and closer to the edge of war with possible nuclear implications. china meanwhile has condemned trump's fire and fury remarks beijing warned the u.s. president against playing with fire over north korea and any accidental spark could trigger a conflict and it looks like relations between china and the u.s. are becoming more tense as well beijing's been angered by an american destroyer the u.s.s. john f. mccain sailing close to a chinese island in the disputed south china sea the washington believes it's done nothing wrong the u.s. destroyers actions have violated chinese and international rules as well as severely homed china's solvency and security china will bring up the issue with the u.s. side the united states does these operations the freedom of navigation operations
all around the world this is nothing new we've done it before we'll continue to do it steadily for provocative so it's clearly an area that china wants to exercise. control over to some degree or at least have. or least keep other military powers out of the region but in light of other things going on the the real pressure on china to act tougher on north korea by the trump administration i think this will be seen as as another. more aggressive stance of the trumpet ministration and it will heighten tensions it further but it's not only china openly criticizing trump's aggressive line america's close allies britain and germany have joined that call saying the u.s. president should deescalate tensions while leaving that home trumps also facing opposition. prison drums escalatory rhetoric is exactly the wrong response to dealing with north korea's provoking behavior it unnecessarily heightens the risk
of miscalculation and creates the very food that can lead to go i don't see the plus in these threats were we getting something in return from these president's threats i don't see it i've never seen that tension so high in the korean peninsula i'm extremely concerned i hope the president's advisers rein him in general kelly you know the new chief of staff he's got to tell the president you can't conduct foreign policy the way you're doing with words with fiery words exchanges stooping to the level of camp joe moon in the north koreans who generate this rhetoric almost every day but this rhetoric has gotten a lot more intense also from the north korean side and trump's comments have not gone unnoticed on social media as well as twitter users are getting the impression that trump is becoming more like a character from a popular t.v. series as kenneth bae has. when donald trump threaten north korea with fire and
fury everyone online apparently had the same thought game of thrones north korea best not make it work threats to the united states. they will be met with five years of. life the world has never see. now arguably the only other world leader whose tirade sound as much like a fantasy villains is kim jong un so we decided to go out and give americans on the street a little quiz we'll give them the quote and they tell us was it was it kim jong un or was it game of thrones the days are gone forever when our enemies could blackmail us game with their own game of thrones. game of thrones out. donald trump game of thrones that's kim jong un ok all right. i tried you know as many people as i can you never know which one you'll need. non-neutral also

relatives then contacted us here you have more details with what i have. while the number of families of saying they've recognize their relatives the moment the children that we filmed in that all footage among them is one woman who says she's the young lead boy that was also filmed in the orphanage she said to support. and while it isn't definitive proof the resemblance is certainly there and the striking the says that leaves parents his mother and his father packed up one day and told all their relatives that they were moving to more scope for work they took the children the next time they called they called from istanbul in turkey after that nobody heard the heard from them for a while there presumed to have crossed the border into either syria or iraq and joined isis. could be. any minute. long
and. she did. need. to tell you. later leads mother contacted family she said that she was alone husband least father had been killed in fighting and that she was alone with the children and also had a newborn child to take care of she said they speak you notice the isis flag in the top right corner after that nobody had heard from her again that was ten months ago but as her relatives tell us who dies last. let me give you do. these.
didn't you. hear it actually. is little good for you. this night they are precious. children. there are potentially hundreds of children with russian origins in iraq's orphanages the children of isis fighters living together with the children of isis victims life for them there isn't going to be easy with that sort of stigma which is why odds he has decided to help we're meeting with a number of families here in dagestan relatives who claim to have recognized the children in those orphanages in order to reunite as many of these orphans with
their families as possible. a group in the u.k. calling itself the x. muslim council has been stirring controversy and members attended an l g b t parade in london on chews day they held up banners denouncing islam and accusing muslims of homophobia in the particular they blame the east london mosque for promoting hatred towards homosexuality according to the group this mosque quote has a long history of hosting hate preachers the east london mosque has responded accusing the group of feeding anti islamic hysteria the x. muslim council refuses to apologize saying it does not need anyone's permission to march for l g b t rights we heard contrasting views on this. a true to ghent people is always wrong with muslim or anyone else but criticizing bigoted intolerant ideas is entirely right and proper i hope the likes of peter who
i have a lot of respect for the human rights over the years he's deeply misguided that what he supports an organization that has made it mission to demonize islam and the religious belief of muslims in this country around the world many of us who are marching or individuals from muslim heritage so i myself am a british pakistani who grew up as a gay individual in a muslim this is my community i have no interest in galvanizing hate against muslims because i will be subjected to that same hate this group was targeting islam must homophobia it wasn't targeting muslim people or even islam in german or the council of muslims has never criticized or condemned muslim people it is only condemned and criticized is the most extremists who advocate hatred and violence against the people if these people have left and that's their right let's
accept that they got a right to live there why are they constantly upset. they need to get a life move on enjoy their life on their new freedom as they tell is asking us to leave the religion and then be silent about. kin across the world who are being victimized by muslim states is a request they are rampant islam the for big organization they are responsible for promoting hatred against muslims now let's just say that is there a council of christians is there a council of jews a council of x. induce a council of x x where religion is legislating against people like gays we were trying to do that and we were challenging. and were trying to control ways holding signs provoke thought and provoke a civil. discussion and dialogue or r.t. headlines in just a moment. something
seems wrong. to shape our. outlook. and it. equals betrayal. when some find themselves worlds apart. to look for common ground. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around. washington washington. the. voters elected a businessman to run this country business if. you must it's not business
the besieged city of the as order is located in eastern syria as we can show you here on the map it is completely surrounded by terrorist forces the syrian army has been blockaded in a tiny portion of the city for almost three years what's more the jihadists are refusing to allow civilians to leave in fact are calling to the un more than one hundred thousand civilians are still trapped inside the city middle east expert ali risk believes despite the odds that there's actually now a final chance the city will be captured from the terrorists they have absorbed first of all is a second biggest province in syria so geographically street. especially now after the syrian army has made so many victories elsewhere the cease fire agreement which was reached between russia the u.s. and jordan. western syria that is apt to actually allow the syrian armed forces to
dedicate. more and free basically freed up more of syria's military to go ahead and launch this attempt to break the siege off we have to think about what's beyond syria's role regionally because there was a lot is an important a linkage area i think that the more and more likely the syrian army will achieve victory and there is a lot more and more likely you might see israel and saudi arabia two of america's main allies in the region trying to obstruct or prevent such as the. area from being fulfilled the. private jet sandlot show tells are not just the reserve of the rich and famous these days newly released details covering just the first two months of twenty sixteen show e.u. commissioners racked up hefty bills on foreign joints with the tabs as usual left to be picked up by e.u.
taxpayers. visit. by john the first visits to your country our meetings today encounter with foreign minister discussion good discussions on a range of issues a wide strange of issues and also talked a lot. of european commission i'm presiding over is not a group of technocrats but it's composed of politicians this is not a commission that would promote the virtues of a foolish and blind policy. but it's not only about money. even if.
that's it's. it doesn't play a minor role. the lavish lifestyles of e.u. officials were only exposed after campaigners waged a three year battle for the release of travel expense records we spoke to the spanish transparency ngo access info which first obtained the documents but they say they've only scratched the surface hundred twenty requests made freedom of information access to documents requests was actually for the whole year of twenty sixteen however the commission decided unilaterally to only release information at this point for january and february twenty sixth they felt that it was an advantage to do and it was disproportionate to release information for the whole year now about doesn't seem to make sense given that they also have this information passed on to the auditor's and to the parliament so if the data is already
collected and is made available to those. institutions then why can't it be made public more generally and you spokespersons defended the travel expenses but some critics say that sometimes it's difficult to see where there is value for money. the the european commission we and unlike the national government don't own any airplanes and do not have the flexibility to therefore it's just our own plane that's why we have to guard. against whenever there is no civility you know that in a commercial flight would not be viable because of then the countering the kitchen or because of security reasons often really people go on these expensive trips and then they just come out with fairly innocuous and statements at the end of them that they really achieve much less the company benefits from face to face meetings are so you know it's good that there is a focus on those problems in armenia and azerbaijan but really the hasn't been much
progress for a long time now given they are spending taxpayers' money they ought to try and get those places as cheaply as possible within reason and if you look at for example it's a mr young because trips abroad there are several direct flights from brussels to rome every single day on a normal sehgal the airline so why couldn't they have called on those normal slice instead of booking this private jet. a german journalist has found herself making the news as opposed to purporting on it as after she claimed in an interview job in media is biased towards the government in its coverage of the refugee crisis claudio zimmerman said journalists are instructed to report him a pro-government way when it comes to the migrant crisis adding that they are compelled to cover the issue in a positive light revelation was made back in january twenty sixth seen during an interview about the cologne sex attacks that she gave to a dutch radio station it is a topic that zimmerman has covered extensively and our sister channel deutsch spoke
exclusively to the journalist in the middle of this controversy journalists tend to support chancellor merkel's refugee policy throughout the media not just at. some journalists including me tried to pitch more pretty can stories but they would not approve. that's why i spoke out stories that fail to welcome all support this policy of being blocked honestly at first i did not understand the situation the whole situation that occurred because of this as the w d r stated there was a lot of damage in the public field i cooperated and did everything possible to minimize the damage of the w.t.r. i'm still officially not fired they just don't approve my pictures my topics haven't changed yet but it suddenly turned out that i'm not trustworthy in a report published in june this year claimed media outlets are closing their eyes to the concerns and fears of the german population with regard to the country's migration policy cloudier zimmerman claims there are topics journalists want to
cover but are simply not allowed to. i would wish that many more colleagues dared to do more critical coverage the pressure comes from the top to down i know from some colleagues that there are certain topics which they would like to cover but these topics were not approved because they were too critical because they don't fit the format of the program i think it's significant it would be significant for journalism in germany. r.t. america has been speaking exclusively to musician and pink floyd co-founder roger waters and one of the topics discussed was that of the ubiquitous fake news. in fact that is where we're living now where propaganda is more important than facts. and that is a huge news story about this whole thing about fake. people understood. the truth it's free. it's tree education none
of these things from poor. position of power you need to be really good you need to be really good at big. often and. mainstream major is anybody shining actual real. you can watch the full interview at your own leisure on our to use you tube channel for the meantime there we are back with the rest of your worldwide headlines and. social environment. right. chemical discoveries over the last century made every day life easier but at what cost this is syria was exceptionally sick. no wonder it's. says since the years of industrial
giants reap the benefit. caused by chemical production. as if these people are just experimental animals. the toxic environment continues to poison lives and we found these astronomically high levels of backs and levels that my staff think maybe some of the highest levels ever in the united states for almost thirty years this very serious problem had not actually been addressed what will that investigation into the chemical industry secrets revealed . this.
well welcome to. rats in pants to personalities of rocks the man living as goats those are just a few of the achievements that one day a nobel prize this year and award that's handed out for a ridiculously funny research but does to a noble prize serve a greater purpose than just making people laugh is it making science. simply makes a mockery out of it well we asked the founder of the ig nobel price editor of the annals of improbable research magazine.
