phooka has the story. frankly the people that would course think that statement was too tough maybe it wasn't tough enough to want to read. this make it work 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 dubious 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 budget 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 new killer 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 however a close allies britain and germany are calling on the u.s. president to deescalate tensions well even at home trumps also facing opposition we call that the u.s. senate that is ed markey says that trumps hostile rhetoric is the opposite of what's needed and could sleepwalk the country into war we also spoke to a former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. who says that such threats put trump on the same level as north korea's leader. 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 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 china meanwhile has condemned and fury remarks beijing warned the u.s. president against playing with fire over north korea and said any accidental spock could trigger a conflict what's more chinese state media reports the country will protect the north korean regime if the u.s. decides to strike. on the possibility of military confrontation is causing
a split among america's allies australia says it will stand shoulder to shoulder with washington but new zealand says it's not ready to support any aggressive military action we stand shoulder to shoulder with the united states the anzus treaty millions that if america was attacked we will come to their right if a stranger is attacked the americans will come to our right we are joined at the hip the american alliance is the bedrock of our national security committing to i'm aggressive response no while encouraging all involved to of. is not a position we want to take trumps a ton of phrase when it comes in 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. program caleb maupin has details. 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 seen. 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 donald trump donald trump donald trump game of thrones you're correct that is game

calling itself the muslim council has been stirring controversy members attended an elegy parade in london on tuesday they held up banners denouncing islamic using muslims of homophobia in particular they blame the east london mosque for promoting hatred towards homosexuality according to the group this mosque has a long history of hosting hate preachers now the east london mosque has responded accusing the group of feeding hysteria but the ex muslim council refuses to apologize saying it doesn't need anyone's permission to march for the l d b t community we heard contrasting views on the story. a to diggins people is always wrong with muslim or anyone else but criticizing bigoted intolerant ideas is entirely right and proper i hold the likes of pete to
have a little 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 with and 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 general 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 obsess about islam they need to get a life move on enjoy their life and 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 or for big oil can i say shit 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. i will challenge it in meaningful ways holding signs for thought and i'll provoke the same but i move to use discussion and dialogue with some of calling it just the tip of the iceberg a very small details have been released now on the e.u. is it lead to expense accounts now these numbers coming to light it's first class
top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest raid in truth to stand out of the news business is just the dance the right questions demand the right answer. question. so good to have you with us today for the program private jets lavish hotels not just the reserve of the rich and famous these days a newly released details covering just the first two months of twenty sixteen showing you commissioners racking up hefty bills on foreign joints but the tabs as usual left to be picked up by the e.u. taxpayers.
visit. by john the first visits to your country to our meetings today encounter with foreign minister discussion good discussions on a range of issues a wide range of issues and also talked a lot. of european commission presiding over is not a group of technocrats but is 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 sense. it doesn't play
a minor role. well the lavish lifestyles of e.u. officials were only exposed after campaigners waged a three year battle for the release of travel expense records and we spoke to the spanish transparency n.g.o.s access info which first obtained the documents but they say they've only just scratched the surface. hundred twenty requests made freedom of information access to documents requests was actually for the whole year of twenty six thing however the commission decided unilaterally to only release information at this point for january and february twenty sixth when they felt that it was an advantage to burden and it was disproportionate to release information for the whole year now that doesn't seem to make sense given that they also have this information passed on to the auditor's into 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 one
a new 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 governments 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 park. named whenever there is no i that was have been it's you know that you need for in a commercial flight would not be viable because of the agenda countering that going to kitchen or because of security reasons often really people tell me these are expensive trips and then they just come out with sally us and statements at the end of them that i really achieve much less the company benefits from face to face meetings if so you know it's good that says there is a five dollars problems in mean you're in 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 gets those places as cheaply as possible within reason and if you look at for example
it's a mr young because troops have arrived there are several direct flights from brussels to write every single day on normal schedule deadline so why couldn't they have gone on those normal slice instead of booking this private jets. it is not international a german journalist has found herself making the news as opposed to reporting it as after she claimed in an interview the german media is biased towards the government in its coverage of the refugee crisis claudia zimmerman said journalists are instructed to report in a pro-government way when it comes to the migrant crisis adding that they are compelled to cover the issue at a positive light the 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 though zimmerman has covered extensively and our sister channel 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 channel work for some journalists including me tried to preach more critical stories but they were not approved that's why i spoke out stories did feel to walk a more support this policy are being blocked honestly at first i did not understand the situation the whole situation that occurred because of this as a channel stated there was a lot of damage in a public field i cooperated and did everything possible to minimize damage to the w d r i'm still officially not fired he just don't approve my pitches my topics haven't changed yet but it suddenly turn out that i'm not trustworthy anymore a report published in june this year claimed media outlets are closing their eyes to their concerns on fears of the german population with regard to the country's migration policy cloudy as a woman claims they're all topics journalists want to cover but have simply not allowed to. i would wish to many more colleagues dare to do more critical coverage
the pressure comes from the top down i know from some colleagues that there are certain topics we would like to cover but those topics were not approved because you were too critical because did don fit deferment of to program i think it's significant it would be significant for journalism in germany. wildfires in italy have torn their way through thousands of hectares so far this year that's partly due to a record breaking heat wave but also as part explains there are other potentially sinister reasons as well. as temperatures soar across southern europe wildfires have become common particularly in italy. but the sheer number of forest fires has raised suspicions and police have discovered that many fires are less acts of god than acts of some very desperate men and the courses themselves are eyebrow raising in sicily fifteen volunteer policemen have
been arrested for either starting or reporting fires so they could earn an extra ten euros an hour the putting them out for suspicions were raised when the number of fires went up usually volunteer a number. two hundred twenty the alleged ringleader a man known as hddvd is even under house arrest as he apparently constant his practice of driving to an area and sparking up while police indeed say he is one twisted firestarter he said he wanted to set of a bomb to take the money available if the emergency vehicles needed to be repaired another scandal like the fires has also spread to road where two hundred hectares of a nature reserve have gone up in flames and so powerfully has the reputation of a former t.v. director local media citing the investigation is part of a racket who started the fires to intimidate a group of transvestite prostitutes working in the area to make them pay their
protection money where he was found with a flyer in one hand and a lighter in the other one could perhaps say the evidence against him is incendiary . it's a busy friday for news here on r.t. international thanks for joining us so far we are back in approximately thirty three minutes. with lawmakers manufactured and sentenced to public wealth. when the ruling closest to protect themselves. with the crime. nor middle of the room six. real news.
