4:07 am
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 dear it's a statement has nothing to do with there that's a statement now trump's 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 our allies or us they could be very very nervous i'll tell you what they should be very very good
4:08 am
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 in a strange twist while 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. 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 threat flying back and forth seem to be pushing the world closer and closer to the edge of war with possible nuclear implications china
4:09 am
meanwhile has condemned trump's fire and fury remarks version one the us president against playing with fire over north korea and said any accidental spark could trigger a conflict and it looks like relations between china and the u.s. becoming more tense as well beijing has been eyeing goodbye an american destroyer the u.s.s. john f. mccain selling close to a chinese island in the disputed south china sea although washington insists all the while it is doing nothing wrong the u.s. destroyers actions have violated chinese and international laws 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 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
4:10 am
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 is as another a 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 or leave it at home trump is also facing opposition. person interims escalatory rhetoric is exactly the wrong response to dealing with north korea's provocative behavior you don't necessarily 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 advisors rein him
4:11 am
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 came june 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 well that trumps tone a phrase when it comes to north korea has not gone unnoticed on social media with twitter users getting the impression the president's becoming more like a character from a popular t.v. series as reports 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 with threats to the united states. they will be met with five
4:12 am

4:20 am
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 is an important a linkage area i think that the more and more likely the syrian army will achieve victory and they resort to the 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 a scenario from being fulfilled. private jets and lavish hotels and 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 the tabs as usual left to be picked up by e.u. taxpayers.

4:23 am
made public more generally. one e.u. spokesperson has defended the travel expenses but critics say sometimes it's difficult to see where there's value for money. the the european commission we and unlike national government don't own an airplane 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 other civility you know that in when a commercial flight would not be viable because of the then the countering the petition or the good of security reasons often really people tell me these expensive trips and then they just come out with fairly innocuous statements at the end of the day 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

dead 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 where you can keep across what's happening in the world via our website r.t. top call them and various other social platforms as well for the meantime go back with your news and often. social environment. 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 confidential. says sister years old industrial
