not a funeral the same one enters my mind gets consumed with this. speech. clashes break out between protesters and police in the u.s. city of seattle during rival conservative. hate marches becomes a day off to violence. rally in charlottesville virginia. as tensions rise in the verbal spat between the u.s. and north korea a. real war is the highest in. the e.u. migration commissioner warns not enough immigrants are getting deported. to get.
the conservative rally was organized by a group called patriot. billed as a supporter of free speech it was confronted by counter protesters who were shouting insults before police blocked. a group of demonstrators attempted to force their way through the barricade through fireworks and. three people have been arrested. scuffles have broken out of the us city of seattle just one day after a set of street brawls at a white nationalist rally and. crowd of counter protest as a plan vigil for the woman killed in the crash was council to rest but mourners still gathered at the site of the incident. now assessing how divisions domestically in the u.s. may have contributed to the increase in violence. to countering peaceful protests here. really. peaceful given how
high tensions are. throughout the city quickly. here on the street. first. through them injuring nineteen people and killing the thirty two year old woman five more are still in critical condition the driver of a car fled the scene but he has of course since been arrested and identified as twenty year old james fields of ohio he's being charged with second degree murder that attack is being characterized as terrorism by many people here what terrorism is is the use of violence to incite terror and fear and of course it was to present after would be attacked and condemning the violence this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many shots on many shirts politicians on both sides
of the political spectrum slammed the president for not taking a strong enough stance and what's very unfortunate is people in virginia are still fearful that this could happen again given that those organizers of the white supremacist rally have vowed to not give up the hatred and tension was palpable here on saturday and much of it has continued throughout the weekend when one of the organizers of the right protest tried to speak he was not only booed into submission he was also physically attacked the very. day out of the tragic events that occurred here on saturday is unfortunately just the most recent in a series of violent attacks happening throughout america. many of you will remember a republican senator was shot at a congressional baseball practice not long ago when the talks on the left we saw a comedian do a photo shoot holding up
a blubbing severed head that was meant to resemble the president we also saw violent protests and universities in california. we are united and telling these people who do not welcome them here. white america is acting like this brand new this is a brand new this is something that you will start it all instances was it he still had the disc a might. be. ok. they would say extremely these days trying to keep. politics have never been so divisive as they are right now it's unclear what can be done to bring everyone together but it's clear something needs to be done. marty charlottesville virginia. it's about you. divided. about how to get out of how can i try to. get. democrats.
one of the reasons i won the election they're very divided. it is off the international of the war of words between the u.s. and north korea is generating plenty of headlines and made growing fears it could erupt into a real confrontation and even some military advisor is being somewhat hesitant on how big the threat might be. i think we're not closer to war than a week ago but we're closer to war than we were a decade ago and this has been a problem that we've procrastinated on for a long period of time and now it's coming to a head where the threat from north korea not only to the united states but to the world is very very clear well it seems that many people have taken the bait google
so she is in the u.s. for how to survive a nuclear attack are out trending classics like how to get rich and how to be happy and the media is certainly helping to stir things up. people begin weighing their disaster plans a nuclear warhead that could land in hawaii in twenty minutes this is an accidental threat to the united states will information on radiation from a potential nuclear blast so what does that leave us well only a few days into trump's verbal spot with kim jong un a survey showed almost eighty percent of americans believe north korea is capable of launching a missile that could hit america although there was no question of why pyongyang would carry out such a move done you'll hawkins has been taking a look at who actually benefits from scare mongering. the higher the tension the hotter the rhetoric we've certainly had no shortage of that in recent days but who stands to gain from this war of words trump for one the u.s. president has kept busy sounding military drums against north korea. they
will be met. by. that in their state. maybe it wasn't so. and it's tough talk like this that brought him unity found popularity according to one poll trump's approval ratings jumped to forty five percent on the back of those comments. next on the list the north korean army twenty young claims a whopping three and half million volunteers have signed up for the country's military all because of the recent escalation if true definitely a win for his army recruits is. now moving on to guam the us territory located closest to north korea people there have already received god loans and what to do when they see a mushroom clouds but there's an unexpected cause for celebration because
apparently all the hype will actually do the good. and where there is war or even the talk of one is always big money and this time it's ten points for the bunker business sales are going through the roof on the wave of apocalypse histeria now with military tensions running high bomb shelters are alas making a comeback client scott help people who are really really. and really freaked out his clientele has changed from people afraid obama would take their property to those of great trouble start a nuclear war all this drama with north korea it's paying off in a big way for this company take
a look at what they are selling here these are massive bomb shelters one such companies even advising people to form an entire survival community if they get into all cuz you scared feel you could move to one of these bunkers scattered around a whopping twenty square kilometers in south dakota yet another says they're completely sold out are even true did so but we had the capacity to me. years why me trees around the world. so plenty of point scoring on the back of needs planning but while the big bosses are reaping the rewards the laws communities of people are left losing sleep over the fear of the yet another conflict. activist michel louis going to buy from also believes that use of language has been tough because he doesn't consider. to be important. is used by the united states it defends the united states but it's not really the
united states. and the north koreans were to say that we're going to target off the coast of california or we're going to target off the coast of washington state or even target off the coast of hawaii there would be a very different response from the united states because you are directly threatening the homeland but what is the purpose of a territory or a colony the purpose of a colony is that you exploited when things are good things get ugly you cut it loose the fact that speaks so recklessly and so hopefully only helps to underscore a lot of those tensions. continuing its campaign to find relatives of russian speaking children stranded at an iraqi orphanage bringing them home is the coal we are trying to spread internationally among those identified so far off sisters a five year old. and two year old fatima these youngsters have reportedly been taken to iraq by their parents who joined islamic state the girls relatives in

providing any support in the midst of what is a continuing refugee crisis. modern europe. the european union we've never seen do anything here i don't think the e.u. has given us any real support the big expense for us comes from under-age migrants who the town according to law has to take care of generally will be reimbursed around half of the expenses there are tens of thousands of your town is paying because of this and abandoned vessels used by migrants to get across the mediterranean are regularly found on the italian coast newcomers usually arrive under the cloak of night thought to be in a bid to avoid detection by authorities apollo burn the d.n.a. professor of modern history and several university says officials are passing the buck as the situation does continue to get worse. while he is least in the same is blaming the. state.
and the fact is the law maybe it was the local dog. and they are liking the situation we. the child. and the same time the population. may resign and the you is absolutely not in this. tragic i say if. we're going to. locals in afghanistan. claim a deadly u.s. airstrike hit their houses while there were no terrorists in the vicinity of some of the residents stores. yesterday they dropped a bomb on a zuki vehicle killing civilians not a single terrorist is being targeted the foreigners just strike civilians.
the strike was conducted in the middle of open tearing there was zero chance of civilian casualties. one person lost five children but now they bluntly deny that they bombed the civilians they didn't kill a single taliban owasso fights or they killed innocent civilians women and children . that has it been a context up the cruel attacks against our people anymore we urge the government of afghanistan to prevent such brutal acts we were optimistic that they would clear our areas of militants but these military operations are just to show they just for
a few missiles target civilians and then return without any result. and u.s. war in afghanistan also appears to be fueling america's opioid crisis. if you closely follow world events you'll notice two things that are happening almost simultaneously first you have the opioid crisis in the united states and over you it gracious is a very rapid escalation of the air when it opioid prices altered forty two americans are dying every day of drug overdose and then you have the surge in afghan drug production opium production in afghanistan rose by forty three percent to four thousand eight hundred metric tons in twenty six seemed compared with twenty fifteen levels afghanistan hasn't always been the booming center of drug production that is today since the united states invaded in two thousand and one the poppy fields and the drug dealers who run them have been getting stronger in
fact at this point drug production in afghanistan is twenty five times higher than before washington got involved whereas all these opium going how about the united states which is currently suffering from a crisis of opioid addiction well the u.s. drug enforcement agency says that there's no connection southwest asian heroin is by far the most common type of heroin produced in the world however its availability in the u.s. market is very low the u.n. agency begs to differ in different parts of the united states during has been a resurgence in the consumption of heroin and afghanistan is now producing huge quantities we know a great deal of heroin currently comes from mexico but now of ghana stan is looking at the u.s. for the distribution and consumption of its heroin now the u.s. special inspector for afghanistan says that opioids from afghanistan are coming to the u.s. via canada the u.s. department of homeland security currently lists the flow of illicit drugs as the greatest threat on the northern border for the next time you hear u.s.
officials decrying the opioid crisis plaguing the nation and you see images like this. you might also want to keep images like this in mind. artsy new york. the managing editor of a new side veterans today jim dean believes the huge money from drugs production is going to all the wrong places. before we went in afghanistan there was almost no here when production there and then of course after we went in it miraculously began to skyrocket because the northern warlords went back into growing opium to fund the war and also to enrich themselves later that the u.s. contractors people who were involved in doing a lot of the air flights in and out of the country began shipping drugs later we
found out that a lot of the increase in heroin production was being officially done and the money going in the pockets of eventually ending up in political campaigns in the us and also to fund black projects for intelligence operations that they didn't want anything in congress to know that monday while the news headlines continue here on r.t. international and often i'll. make this manufacture consent to the public well. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the final.
episode be the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each day. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still
some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters in mind it's consumed with death this one quite different i speak to now as there were no other takers. to lame that mainstream media has met its maker.
