i. i. i. i think. that's the manhunt for the barcelona attacker intensifies or thought he's away a couple of chances he's already slipped across the border fronts. also headlines the u.s. and south korea begin massive military drills leading to more threats from north korea and accusations of provocation from experts. and state suffers another blow in syria as the russian defense ministry says a large islamic state convoy heading to day was hit by an airstrike killing more than two hundred terrorists.
a morning here in moscow. is here with you today thanks for joining us in the headlines from r.t. this hour spanish police say it's possible the man behind the wheel in a deadly barcelona van attack has fled to france meanwhile families of the alleged perpetrators of the two terror attacks in spain last weeks a very relative brainwashed is x. left fourteen people dead and more than one hundred injured. we are all shocked the family in spain is also shocked the puzzling question is how sami and the likes of sami became terrorists. you would never suspect that you son of a relative would do this i would tell him to surrender please surrender to the police parents surrender to see if the police can capture the ones that have done this to you either one is on. kids will be recruited it's not about these kids it's
about what was done to them what they have been told and to what. police suspect who masterminded the attacks was killed in a recent explosion and that's where it's believed the terrorists had a bomb making factory and have been planning attacks on a much larger scale for the manhunt for the barcelona driver continuing what i guess the of breaks down how open borders of previously played into the hands of the hardest on the run. in this day and age of tootle surveillance radicals who are often known to police could move down more than one hundred people in broad daylight and get away they can cross twenty six european countries and there will be a single border checkpoint the entire way the good the suspected barcelona have crossed into france we don't have any specific information on this but it cannot be
ruled out frightening isn't it you would have thought europe might have learned its lesson the first time around or the second or the third how many terror attacks of their even being in the last three years the sad and tragic truth is europeans have largely lost track broken by the attacks in paris nice berlin stockholm manchester london and other cities these days unfortunately the wave of international terrorism is brutally hitting us turning barcelona and campbell's into the latest scenes of terrorist injustice here is a little map of recent europe trips undertaken by jihad ists i miss our marie runs over almost seventy people in burlington and makes it as far as italy before he's accidentally court. mohammed travelled all the way from greece to france through at least eight european countries with
a fake passport before blowing himself up in paris salah adel salam involved in paris attacks that killed and injured need five hundred people traveled through at least nine european states before the attack he was on terror watch lists and they eventually found him in belgium often it's been the case that the powers that the. authorities already had were being used but notwithstanding that they then introduced the authorities of the government's new legislation giving new powers to the police and security services notwithstanding that it wasn't any lack of those powers in the first place that led to the intelligence failures and it may well be that that's true here and the same applies to border controls but it remains a possibility in may have crossed the spanish border anybody that knows. as indeed is the case throughout very much of western europe that those borders are extremely
porous you can go across as a car in a car in the back of a vehicle or even walk across in some cases they see it isn't punishment to the scribe it's the inevitability of punishment but thanks to europe's open border prospective terrorists can be sure no matter what they always have that chance to slip away. other news russia's defense ministry says a large convoy heading to the syrian city of date is or has been hit by the russian air force multiple vehicles along with ammunition and weapons were destroyed more than two hundred terrorists killed the ministry pointed out that i still terrorists are trying to make their last stand in the besieged the daters or after the terror group suffered heavy losses in the provinces of iraq and homs the defeat of us all there would be devastating for the group's presence in syria according to the russian ministry at the map you're looking at right now used to have
a lot more black white areas even at the beginning of august a lot of change due to a series of successful operations carried out by the syrian army with the support of russian. tensions are running high on the korean peninsula as the u.s. and south korea have started large scale joint war games amid continuing anger from
pyongyang prior to the drills north korea threatened a muscle to strike and warned washington of the risk of uncontrollable nuclear war the annual show of force will last ten days and nights of military conflict with an isolated country opinion says the drills practice and invasion while the u.s. maintains their defensive in nature this year more than seventeen thousand american troops are taking part in the drills which involve land sea and air exercises also computer simulations back in july russia and china proposed a halt to the games in exchange for a freeze of pyongyang's missile tests. from the korea policy institute believes the exercises or a provocation these particular exercises coming up are substantially computer simulations to involve thirty thousand military personnel from the united states and south korea as well as other nations including the
united kingdom and australia but these are mainly current puter base simulations rather than physical exercise of however one of the simulator simulating war with north korea so that's a provocative. step in itself right on north korea of the united states. very. idea of diplomacy is to apply or threats and person does not perform with you at all for with the pattern of. threats haven't worked in north korea therefore more threats that are needed backwards way of thinking. the military exercises come off north korea earlier said it would hold off on strikes handing the next move to washington let's just take a look now how the recent crisis between shelling and washington has been unfolding .
to stand together. in the months and years ahead with the people of south korea to both preserve their freedom i don't think you know we want to risk a nuclear war you have to be crazy to do so and actually got to crazy it's a very unpleasant state we take very complex and root and it up against the numbers day which is not in the steadiest of hands of men but really mildly but if you look real the point of all this from a north korean point of view isn't just to sound. impressively threatening it's with the regime to survive so i don't think the whole point of all these things is
for the regime to survive and of course it can't just apply if it uses anything kind of. our u.s. guided missile destroyers collided with an oil tanker in the strait of malaka located between malaysia and indonesia as a result of the accident five navy sailors were injured and another ten i'm missing a search and rescue operation is currently underway this is the second similar accident in the last three months back in june the warship the u.s.s. fitzgerald collided with a merchant vessel off the coast of japan. the middle east israeli authorities have raised to the ground the house belonging to the family of a palestinian terrorist he stabbed and killed three israelis last month according to locals the assailants father mother and three brothers have been detained as well managed to speak to the uncle of the alleged terrorist but didn't get a better look at our navy last night about two am we woke up and told the
bulldozers are heading our way to demolish our house we got dressed and about ten minutes later the only came out because they started destroying the inside walls of the house with sledgehammers and then the bigger came up and started hitting the house from the front and back you seen yourself was lifting nothing. or definition is a widely used punitive measure by israel in retaliation for acts of terror committed by palestinians since twenty fifteen alone the practice has resulted in a displacement of one hundred forty nine people that's including sixty five children a human rights watch has repeatedly said destroying family homes violates international law no demolitions have ever been undertaken against jewish people who carried out terror attacks a palestinian activist told us it's a clear example of discrimination. before doing anything even conducting the investigation they demolish the homes clearly here israel is using no law
actually they are functioning outside the ranks of proper law demolishing people's houses and families houses is the worst form of collective punishment but more than that israel and the israeli army practices this collective punishment is also discriminatory in the sense that when an israeli jewish person commits an attack on palestinians including for instance burdening the list and like has happened today on the. man from young boys from kabul for their family nothing is done to their family or no act of punishment like that like demolishing their house to explain you have two systems of laws for two people living in the same area one law for the israeli jewish people and the other low for palestinians and that is called an international law a system of apartheid and racial discrimination free speech comes under the
. the voters elected the businessman to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before . the program of violent clashes erupted in on sunday when i do you fascist activists confronted a new nazi march. i. europe's ultra right groups gathered there to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the death of hitler's top henchmen rudolf hess was a heavy police presence on the streets in a bid to separate the two groups however that didn't prevent impassioned verbal spots the sending into fist fights. or near nazis marching in the streets is not
the full extent of the problem recently an investigation was launched that without a geisha is that members of an elite unit of the german army had been giving nazi salutes and playing new nazi rock music at a party auntie's miguel from santiago has been looking into the story. have you ever heard of germany's special forces command that's right probably not because this is a german special ops team the process to join which the so-called k s k rigorous only a handful of soldiers are accepted out of hundreds for operations in conflict zones all over the world just recently a young woman came forward in german t.v. channel claiming that she had been invited to a k. ask a farewell party her task was to police the commander with the prize but it's alleged the chaos broke out nazi salutes were flying all over the room alcohol was being consumed to excesses and even a pig's head was being thrown about all to a backdrop of a german nazi song being blasted out of the speakers
a witness we called some of the lyrics showing how some feel nostalgic for the once powerful regime we are examining the incident the investigation may eventually be taken over by the stuttgart attorney and to lawful after ensues or symbols have not been confirmed so far headlines about right wing extremism in the ranks of german armed forces have been plaguing its military with some reports suggesting more than twenty five hundred cases have been registered in germany and unnecessary distraction to the many threats it's facing as of now it's nearly as problem is. most of the digital military is not really a threat and more. of course are the military this is the mob that is only accepted by the majority of people of your country when you were in the military and you know a lot. except it by your friends and by the problem because you're going to take my
life protos you are not really into this and you don't get the best people so they're going to tear it you see the military and it really has a crisis that's. all that it is simply in the. if you have the bridge. did. you have a lot of the sticks there all of the states that have. a discussion on free speech i got at a university that was due to be held on tuesday has now been canceled after a backlash on social media activists on facebook accused the event of giving a platform to fascists they threaten to disrupt it with counter-demonstrations ryerson university shut down the discussion citing safety concerns counter-demonstration though will still be held outside the campus now the panel includes four speakers including four speakers one of them the controversial professor jordan peterson he became known for those of you remember too refusing to
use gender neutral pronouns another was behavioral scientist gad saad who's against so-called thought police on campus it was quite extraordinary that the people who are organizing this protest who are trying to disrupt the event or accusing the speakers myself included of being fascists nazis anti semites what kind of person could actually accuse a person with my background of being a nazi and anti semites to you but in any case ryerson university has struck canceled the event of an on the stifling of freedom of speech on campuses. i'm not sure that i need to say anything else i have a good there were. the two of the speakers were conservative journalist and
psychologist. he says a poem is the side of the simply use labels instead of having productive discussion. we're not promoting hatred well promoting fascism bigotry or anything of the sort look at the truth behind the labels is what we're trying to promote so this was about trying to compel people to be able to speak up to be able to have again you know on this discussion and civil discourse with people maybe you disagree with we're trying to promote the right way to have these kinds of discussions because it's not working the way it's been going for the last few years so identity politics people have become so simplistic that if you don't fit into this category that they like if you're not with them then you're automatically the enemy today's world if you aren't on the far left you are seen as a nazi. good intentions without proper knowledge behind them sometimes you putting virus in results and that's exactly what happened with the new road safety campaign by transport for london take a look. not
one of us had scoff i don't wear a headscarf and i know many people many of the people who don't that is not a function on who we are as muslims muslim women come in all shapes and sizes from all different types of nationalities different backgrounds different ethnicities the company itself though one tank is going to understand that so many people would have looked at this company and signed off on it before she went when talent makes me think that perhaps for london they they perhaps need more diversity training.
you know what radio host sean gold believe such campaigns achieve the exact opposite of what they're actually supposed to do this is just in the classic example of politicians desperately trying to appease the muslim minority and it backfired spectacularly because not only has it been a waste of true million pound issue so upset large sections of the most in community look these children didn't have to be identified by their religion political correctness shouldn't have come into play you gave it to issue just speaking about road safety but it's typical of people in government and in the local councils to act in this way and this kind of madness is called a politicize ation this kind of treading on eggshells right ethnic old religious minorities needs to stop. the use rough up so far for this monday but so
was more from us through it all to dot com i'm back and often how we've been next live update here and we'll see you then. when else should seem wrong. but all. just don't call. me old yet to see proud disdain become active. and engaged equals betrayed. when something you find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground . what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or
kids sure it was suggested but not proved and a fairly strong one there were two thousand were out so involved in the study it's a very extensive study done by a well respected scientist. do chemicals that down the appetizing pink color really increase the risk of cancer nightrage remains are known to infuse damage in the large intestine is it a shared skepticism they do not believe that step horace is is truly by independent scientists so did the need industry pig you for this i received some compensation for my time as was the others why is that the meat lobby definitely do like what we've been doing and if you want to learn more you'll get a definite on seeing the outflow you are only here and do not go back to. is it big business against health. as it started to show us.
all stand ins saved. a batch or sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself in taken your last wrong turn. you're at it up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry if only i could so i write these last words and hopes to put to rest piece things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was again still some are fond of you 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 a mind it's consumed with death. quite different speech because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker.
what politicians do you should really think. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure more some want to be rich. but you'd like to be closer to see what before three of the more people get. interested always in the waters of. their should. not set aside the promise of the nearest u.s.
administration to mend ties with russia foreign policy hawks and their merican political establishment are standing firmly against a warming of relations. is the way forward for moscow and washington we ask a woman who helped the two great powers find common ground at the height of the cold war advisor to president ronald reagan russian scholar and author suzanne messi is with me today. twenty five years since the end of the cold war the u.s. and russia once again find themselves in boiled in a standoff with old rivalries regenerated and gentian schweizer and with the white house changeover there is hope that personal goals on the intro been totally made remember faced by rolling out of control. of a new us president be able to find common ground with moscow and shakes their swirls below to settle clashes of east. normally completed two interests a little more personal approach by the two leaders really be a decisive factor in lifting the relationship out of the rubble. suzanne massie
advisor to president reagan on russian foreign policy it's really great to have you on our show today welcome thank you and still happy to be here so the washington post says that the white house doesn't have enough capable acts for its on russia and a more compared to reagan times what do you think is our people who are behind the russian foreign policy in washington misinformed well i'd like to be tactful about this but i do think we have a lack of such things at least recently we did recently much more recently. no i don't think right now that we have i don't like the word expert but i mean people who really know you and who know the language who know your history and who feel your history i don't feel we have very many like that right now in official positions now when you start working with president reagan he actually reached out
to you because you wanted to work with people that weren't part of his inner self circle washington experts right do you think the current administration is ready to make an effort like that. i wouldn't speak for them i think that everybody in america at this moment it seems is very confused about our new president very very going and what he's going to say next i think to him. i happen to care a great deal for russia and i have for many years and i have always maintained the exact position from the beginning and that is that you have a lot to give us and we have a lot to give you and we should be together because together we could do a great deal more than we can do a parts for the rest of the world that's been my position if they ever wanted to talk to me about that i would be happy.
