donald trump has a ratcheted up his rhetoric against the leader of north korea off the regime's latest threat of a missile strike near u.s. territory the president sent the following warning to kim jong. il he utters water threats or if he does anything with respect to chua or any place else that's that american territory or an american ally he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast tweeted the u.s. army is locked and loaded against the secretive east asian state it's the latest in a long line of rhetoric from the american leader with fears the war of words is now becoming a little too personal. north korea best not make it work threats
1:08 am
to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see the people that were questioning that statement was it too maybe it wasn't tough enough that it did it's a state that has nothing to do with their that's a statement. and i wanted to ask on the war of words for now u.s. media reporting the pentagon has plans for a preemptive strike on north korea's nuclear facilities but that's raising fears across the border in seoul as a correspondent explains so what if mr trump goes forward and all these roughly two dozen north korean missile launch sites testing grounds and other facilities go boom there is no way kim jong un won't take revenge what are they going to aim at. the north korea shop or to you and dignity army will launch the merciless own troop decision strikes from the ground. water so they'd better stop being reckless. and
1:09 am
even without the stuff trump wants to wipe out they've got quite the arsenal toy unleashed hell over the thirty eighth parallel for decades north korea has been prepping artillery for that very moment and now what they've got loaded and ready to fire are twelve thousand pieces of two barks hillary and twenty three hundred units of multiple launch rocket artillery. the direction southward is clear where precisely will kim point across here here are two words for you to learn how to force and how to value targeting south korea and possibly even u.s. military facilities near the demilitarized zone versus an attack to destroy economically critical infrastructure and to cause immense civilian casualties i mean it when i say immense look at the range of north korean artillery beyond the
1:10 am
border millions of people live there more than half of south korea's population so with roughly ten million residents and with almost three million and sue one over one million all these cities are in that zone and some estimates say that forty eight hours. artillery raids may kill over one hundred thousand in and around seoul alone but what kind of specific north korean threat have we been mostly hearing about from the folks on t.v. the dramatic escalation in tensions with north korea overnight the regime divide by president trump with a new threat against the u.s. territory of guam chilling new warning comes as the rogue nation threatens to strike guam home to thousands of u.s. service members this is a regime that's trying to not only establish its power but demonstrate its power everyone splaying the talent kim's missile range game even if it is capable of
1:11 am
reaching the u.s. and in the pacific how realistic is the threat of a successful launch a launch that would dog america's. worst . if you are us citizen on the coast of no doubt you're still pretty stressed but hey say that to south koreans from somewhere near seoul they'll be the first to get zapped if mr trump pulls the trigger gregory illich a member of the solidarity committee for democracy and peace in korea believes seoul should distance itself from washington's warmongering. i think the best outcome that this situation could possibly have is if south korea decides to take a lead in the situation and to stress its own interests and the interests of the
1:12 am
entire korean people both in north and south doesn't necessarily mean taking sides with either north korea or the united states but i think. the president of south korea has accommodated from too much and this is if anything strange from to disregard south korea's views so i think it's time for south korea to be very firm in stating the they will oppose any measure that the united states to takes to start a war and make the same point to north korea as well the escalation on the korean peninsula is sparking fears of conflict with phrases like how to survive nuclear war trending online. america has more on how people up potentially preparing full again. it's back the prospect of nuclear armageddon and with it and media with panic about how to survive the fallout people begin weighing their disaster plans nuclear warhead that could land in hawaii in twenty minutes
1:13 am
additional information on radiation from a potential nuclear blast this is an accidental tried to the united states google searches for how to survive a nuclear attack have gone through the roof within the past few days beating old classics like how to get rich and how to be happy no surprise then that nuclear holocaust survival guides are appearing all over the place garnering tens of thousands of views nobody ever wants to experience the devastation of schools to buy nuclear weapons please get prepared while you still can a great still means coming on time is quickly running out even old guidelines are getting a new lease of life like the rather ominous affair posted in two thousand and fourteen by a local health care agency. i know you can. teach me. that being outside. your explosion.
1:14 am
is the worst place thinking. it best to dark for you here's a cheery little ditty advising people to stay indoors and watch the news only. the clouds in the sky don't look funny you've got to get this out the door is going to be too serious or even down here it is just. to stay tuned to them. but if you don't have faith their house or main standing you could always invest in a bunker manufacturer say business is booming we see that giant increase in self especially in the last three days is tremendous for our very probably is century after. the storm it also the business of wall so the tensions are very high. people are taking precautions they're interested in shelters well bunkers like the . might not actually save you from a nuclear holocaust but they might just protect you from all the media hype leading up to one. on our washington d.c. joining us for your news here on r.t.

international a large group of adults in the u.k. convicted of child sex abuse linked to a child sex network we'll cover that story on the rest of your headlines in just a. when you factor consent to public will. when the ruling close is protect. the flame of. the room. this transition to the batteries and the steel energy paradigm is really remarkable
1:16 am
is happening quite rapidly and it's totally facilitated by this network economics that's transforming the global economy and central banks are fading and the currency is fading electricity and batteries are battery technologies. so it's really huge pot defining transition to a new a new world and china is positioning themselves. could have you with us today for the program at least sixteen civilians have died in a u.s. air strike in eastern afghanistan that's according to local officials now the u.s. military's acknowledged the bombing raid in the province but claims only militants were killed afghan officials have disputed this and we heard from an eyewitness to the strike on the relatives of some of the victims. my father and my mother who.
1:17 am
live in people being transported in the vehicle three women five children two men and one of the women was wounded. the booming was current we would put in our school the place where the instrument hit. and i to have my mother and my sister were. looking to see if there was any and to the west and coalitions intervention in a. cord into the afghan government these civilians were killed in eastern afghanistan the u.s. government says that that is not accurate it says that only militants were killed we reached out specifically to the pentagon to get a clarification and for more information about the situation we did not receive an answer now this comes as donald trump is talking about reworking u.s. strategy in afghanistan we just heard him speak on it and he says his intention is to make it quote a whole lot less messy it's a very big decision for the took over
1:18 am
a mess. we're going to. make it a lot less messy but that has been a place seventeen years old there's tours i read in one of your code and frankly it's. it's going to be a decision that's within the of adverse now at this point roughly eight thousand four hundred u.s. troops are in afghanistan there joined by roughly five thousand nato forces that are there alongside them from various nato countries the united states has been in afghanistan for over sixteen years there's been a series of incidents in which civilians have been killed and increasingly in u.s. airstrikes we've also seen afghan security forces being killed much controversy surrounding u.s. activities in the country but as the u.s. intervention in the country continues there have been calls from the military for an expansion of the u.s. military presence in afghanistan one proposal comes from eric prince the owner of a military contracting firm formerly known as blackwater the. quite controversial
1:19 am
he's proposing that the usa privatized its war in afghanistan there would be contracted people professionals former special special operations veterans that have experience in that theater to go do that work which would be profiting from the war. well we're not there now but any vendor that again solves that solution that's that's capitalism that's that's what it's about now the expanded use of military contractors in afghanistan and other parts of the world raises questions of accountability when such forces violate international law or engage in activities that are questionable but this is just one of the many questions that are raging as the sixteen year intervention by the united states in afghanistan continues although one defense expert we spoke to says the latest casualties in afghanistan highlight the need to revise the western coalition's strategery the u.s. has killed civilians and they usually say they are killing militants because they think that's the standard line i think the real issue is whether the united states
1:20 am
should pull out of there and that's what's being decided in washington i think president trump is less enthusiastic about leaving u.s. troops there were increasing u.s. troops then the military is that the united states even if they're losing conflicts they want to keep their finger in the dike hoping for a turnaround if they couldn't win with one hundred thousand troops u.s. troops in there it's very difficult to train afghan military that's corrupt and. very ineffective into a fighting force they've been trying to do that for you know sixteen years and it has worked. until the campaign in the german city of the we spoke is stirring controversy residents have been encouraged to create motivational slogans for the city is rubbish bins but the use of turkish was left hooks feeling that they've been singled out.
1:21 am
i think it's a great campaign it would be nice to find your own name and it supports people to predict garbage in garbage cans and not leave it on the street. it's going to really get this message through to encourage people in cleaning up after themselves and not on the street on the ground. and a politician a member of the community defended the initiative saying it's not against yet he
1:22 am
also didn't believe it was an act of exclusion or discrimination we also spoke to a member of the alternative for germany party who when he told us that a lack of integration could be to blame for the uproar. this whole issue is just a symptom of failed integration if you feel that you are sidelined that you'll be racist discriminated against you easily take offense luckily the german disposal company who started this initiative brushed off all complaints and carried on business as usual it was just a very very harmless compay and i should say these are things that apply to all the people who live in that area it has nothing to do with racism as a tool then again if you want to be offended you will always find something to be offended. seventeen men and one woman of belonging to
1:23 am
a child sex network have been convicted of abuse in the u.k. it's off the years of committing child rape and trafficking and the gang to underage girls with drugs and alcohol police say almost five hundred arrests were made off the two hundred seventy eight victims testified over to one of the convicted gang members was of asian origin and one british m.p. the labor party's sarah champion claimed that people are afraid to acknowledge the racial aspect of the story because they're worried about being branded racist and we put the issue up for debate. on my scale and it may not be every single case but on the my scale these men are muslim and the thing that with people are afraid of say it isn't that people are afraid to say the word asian they're afraid of saying the word morsi between eighty and ninety percent of child sex exploitation perpetrators are white non muslims i'm not saying you know i also absolutely i also know you're not you're someone in your view that muslims should be held to some
1:24 am
kind of superior moral standard because i happen to be a muslim and even one muslim doing something reprehensible is one too many for me but i think. mostly i would agree actually but focusing disproportionately on i don't these but when muslims do it is doing nothing but allowing the this deep problem which with deep roots throughout the establishment to perpetrate further and to claim that it's some kind of. just merely because i really agree with if i can interject just for a minute your right when you say that eighty percent of the crimes committed there are paid a failure rate white people this is still a majority of white country but when you look that muslims are according to statistics five percent of the population and then that the statistics of how many are carrying out these these heinous acts against but don't want girls there is the
1:25 am
racism their racism is towards the white girls asian people and muslim people are not excessively outside of statistical significance disproportionately represented when you look at the country as a whole now in places where there's where there's a lot of asians slash muslims i agree there's a lot of likewise people who from this background are committing certain crimes and we have to address that but trying to forge a mystical link between islam or the brownness or muslim s. and these types of crimes is only diverting attention away from where it needs to go to actually. to actually. see this all where demick are is our man but. you can't solve this with science first of all are and i am not a scientist so blinded me with science is pointless anyway i come at this from somebody who is a survivor of gang rape i know what right does to a person and simple but i give these girls a gong through being told aid by most in maine who are posting from one cause
1:26 am
brothers cousins that unfortunately is a silent state they face then it does not mean that all muslims do it it does not mean that the muslim community justifies it but it does mean it is happening and therein lies the importance to distinguish between a stereotype based on one person's opinion and one person's. experience however tragic incident may be and statistical significance if we don't actually look to the facts as they are when for the actually referred to experts don't actually refer to people who can actually credibly fix this problem they will just be toast chasing our tails and people calling each other racists or islamists or radical or this or that it is our international thanks for joining us so far it's approaching half past eight on saturday morning we are back in half an hour.
