we would be told today by the coalition it was very clear that they would no insurgents in the area the un expressed his deep concern over the mounting civilian death toll in the syrian city of black after coalition air strikes reportedly killed doesn't. have to stand hits back at donald trump after the president named it among the countries not doing good enough to help solve the afghan quagmire and demanded kharaj do more. and r.t. visit the twelve year old yemeni boy who suffered appallingly from the war undergoing no less than twenty three operations as the country's gripped by
conflicts between who think rebels and the government backed by saudi arabia's bombing campaign. that this is r.t. international broadcasting to you live from the russian capital on the karen good to have you with us. the u.n. is raising the alarm they have reports that as strikes by the u.s. led coalition have killed dozens of civilians in the syrian city of raka. yesterday unconfirmed reports indicate that over thirty people were reportedly killed in the us keeney neighborhood while eight internally displaced people from the same family were killed in a separate attack in another part of the city in recent days and weeks scores of civilians have reportedly been killed or injured in iraq judah airstrikes and
shelling when you first hear some of these reports it's easy to believe that they exaggerations take a recent one by the u.s. led coalition is accused of bombing a house packed with civilians killing dozens and dozens of innocents even more bodies buried under the rubble and then multiple sources begin repeating the same reports footage begins to a much videos pictures that supports these reports and these claims one thing to do more travel to the off hospital and you know a witness and survive with testimonies anything to go by these things happen regularly and if it can was we were directly targeted by the coalition it was very clear that they would new insurgents in the area there were children playing in the streets and we were carrying water from a tap on house and civilly in homes would do great be targeted reports about the use of white phosphorus civilian areas being peppered with chemical weapons.
in which we heard that the coalition use white phosphorous near iraq it was dropped by the warplanes who else could have done it it had to be the planes they were targeting a civilian neighborhood. we've contacted the u.s. led coalition are asking them to comment on some of these allegations and we got the standard response that they're taking all of this very seriously and that they are investigating and karen one of the defacto we need is of the u.s. led coalition is actually in the edit be with us james mattis the u.s. secretary of defense and d.'s well optimistic. we will continue to be part of iraq the people. make proprietor future. pain the stability that will burn a very very high price a very high cost hardly does justice to how much iraqis have lost and sacrifice during this struggle take mosul an hour's drive from us once
a city of two million now reduced to largely a wreck abandoned by its people just west of that is. well james mattis is optimistic here that it be two hours drive from here he's jets a pounding and not the community tens of thousands of people a trap now in a new war zone the iraqi military the u.s. led coalition of trying to push isis out of. the conditions there are said to be desperate food is scarce medicine and even drinking water running out of now those people are in chaos everything you know life is destroyed this is my mother she couldn't walk so i put it over my shoulder and we walk like about thirteen hours now we are here and we have nothing. more but it looks here is difficult there is no air conditioning there is no food with the wrong food the transit system to salute. at the end of the day there is little doubt that isis in iraq will be
defeated albeit at a tremendous cost but the u.s. led coalition and the iraqi military have demonstrated that it is a price they will let the civilians of iraq pay. sorrow as a car way from the international committee of the red cross told us that telephones residents face multiple dangerous even if they manage to escape from the city. no i think that it is for civilians to flee or for aid agencies to enter its military you don't want that course is going to get even more intense the people who are fleeing be able. to leave many of them well planned nine while being shot at the operations have been painful and of course we think that there are a lot of to be in that have been affected now of course the people and and and
things similar. to what the moving up suffered on the left food. water. in addition of course to. not having seafood to the. well it's one of the program i'm going to be delving deeper into the story and discussing it with david swanson from the united nations office for coordination of humanitarian affairs so do stay tuned for that. pakistan has hit back at trump's claim that it supports terrorists islamic back responded that the country is being singled out as a scapegoat that's off the trump announced his new afghan plan in a major u. turn but it seems that other countries are also being caught up in the president's criticism or let's find out more about this and discuss it with our correspondents americain samir a good to see you so how is trump's new strategy playing out in
practice. well trumps new strategy for afghanistan raises a lot of questions of what exactly is new about it more troops and not setting a timeframe for withdrawal sounds very similar to the policies of past administrations but it also seems like washington is actively actively looking around to find someone else in the region to fight the taliban or just someone to blame for the failed campaign. trump seems to have chosen pakistan let's take a look this time for pakistan to demonstrate its commitment to civilization order and to peace. well suppose an ally pakistan was singled out by trump as providing safe havens for terrorists this is an allegation baucus on reacted angrily to accusing trump of trying to find a scapegoat for the us his failures in afghanistan washington also somehow through
india into the mix calling upon india's support to resolve the conflict though trump wasn't exactly clear how. we've got to put the pressure on india that they have to be part of the political solution or doing it together it's not the united states alone and of course the usual suspects have already been named allegedly behind the taliban successes on the battlefield. we have large the shore with. russia is supplying arms to the taliban and that is a violation. well russia and iran have comically been accused of supplying arms to the taliban even though it makes no sense whatsoever as it contradicts history and current current geopolitical situation russia however has stated it has no illicit contacts with the taliban and even insisted that they
don't provide weapons to the insurgents but at the moment washington is just searching for an exit strategy from a sixteen year deadlock by trying to share the burden and the blame even by sending demands to other countries to do so. ok samir a thank you for that update. talking live from washington d.c. . the u.s. air force says it may increase airstrikes on afghanistan that's following president trump's decision to step up the sixteen year military campaign on monday trump allowance for an open ended surge of troops and money to the country in a major u. turn on election promises it sparked protests in arizona also out of venue where he was due to speak. barrier to prevent breast smoke bombs and fireworks with thrown at offices hundred
scame out to protest just over a week off the deadly violence in charlottesville on the president's much criticized remarks on the role of hates groups in the country racial tensions have intensified in recent days which may have overshadowed chunks radical shift on afghanistan. the way president donald trump is portrayed you think he is an evil leader the likes of which america has never seen shadow of moscow seems to haunt president trump the world's shining light of democracy as one of the most radical everybody you know if you're a speech is take a look at what some of the neo nazis are saying about his speech. even terms announcement of a new afghan strategy was skewed to supposedly show how the president was stirring up racial tension the president began his nationally televised address monday night urging americans to come together to rise above racial and ethnic divisions he wanted to speak to the nation about charlottesville and his comments he should have
spoken to the nation about stroke zero and modeled it by putting it into a speech about afghanistan that's what i thought as an american but can we just get back to afghanistan for a second please the president just made a fairly hawkish decision to boost america's military presence in the country sound familiar on my orders the united states military has begun strikes against al qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime in afghanistan i know that many of you have grown weary of this conflict. as you are well aware i do not support the idea of endless war given what's at stake in afghanistan i am firmly convinced that we should make this extra effort i doubt we will what both previous presidents both democrat and republican. chose to do so it seems hard but clearly not impossible to chalk it up as just another misstep by the big bad billionaire we will also expand authority for american armed forces to
target the terrorist and criminal networks that so violence and chaos throughout afghanistan this is in tradition with all u.s. president trump is no continuing that long held tradition and if we look at u.s. foreign policy over the decades it is one long today pretty much on broken interaction or gender always regime change or military intervention is always the order of the day and diplomacy always takes a backseat over the years afghanistan has been a massive drain on both u.s. financial and human resources and yet trump is choosing to soldier on. and all of those resources have led to little measurable success loss to the quagmire of the afghan conflict understand it's my responsibility we're not winning
in afghanistan right now. this in tahrir is intended to put pressure on the taliban to have the taliban understand that you will not win a battlefield there three we may not win one but neither will you things are going to get worse for the people of afghanistan especially the civilians we're going to see formal casualties their country in general is going to continue to spiral out of control some of the neo con generals the retired generals a couple years ago talked about a military u.s. military presence in afghanistan for at least fifty years they might be exaggerating but i can easily see that happening because there's this hardly any opposition serious. so despite the promises of making america great again it seems that washington is just going to continue to fight and look for it seems almost impossible of actually winning to go r. t. washington d.c.
. under trump's new plan the u.s. is expected to stand up to four thousand more troops to afghanistan with the exact number of remaining a secret america's top commander for the middle east as if it tells says the first new forces could arrive within weeks former u.s. congressman ron paul told us about the implications of the president's decision. changes the words and makes it sound like the world will come apart if we don't continue to be the world's policeman he says he's not into nation building but there was a pretense anyway how many nations that we can really build or improve we've torn nations apart so he is seen as a flip flopper which i think politically is a bad position to be. going to be perpetual war nobody knows exactly who the enemy is and nobody will know when it is ended i think trump has been maybe a little bit more upfront that his goal isn't to get done in six months or
a year it looks like he's planning to be there for the long term. he wants to increase the troop levels mean he will but we don't know exactly and we who are on the pro peace side think that he should do very very little without the consent of the congress and yet it sounds to me like even though he wants to give away some of his authority and say well the generals are in charge the generals in charge let them make all the decisions. that he flip flops and goes along with the neo cons which it looks like he has he's not going to win them over the people who support mccain and graham and rubio they're not going to all of them say oh yeah it looks like trump is one of us now we're going to support a so i think he loses i think he loses in a political way he loses support from some of his base and he's not going to gain any support from the people who are now saying oh he looks like he's waking up in
the he's accepting the neo con position approach to a war we visit a small spanish town let terrorists behind it see recent it's honks grew up we've got that story and we'll off the bank. was sold you on the idea. dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle. for you socks for the tell you the lobby gossip the tabloids by fell. off the bad guys and tell me you are not cool enough to buy their products. that we along with all you want.
the feeling of. every the world to be real. and you get it on the old the old. the old according to josh. for the. welcome back at least thirty five people are being killed off an asteroid hits a hotel in the yemen's capital sana'a that's according to his the rebel media but he blames the attack on saudi arabia which is regularly carried out bombardments on the country riyadh supporting the yemeni government which is fighting against the rebels we have not been able to independently verify this information but the saudi
led coalition has been repeatedly accused of killing civilians in yemen or their riyadh denies the claims. aarti has been to visit a yemeni boy aged just twelve he's already had almost two dozen operations after falling victim to armed classes in his country and warning you may find the following image is upsetting. her mates father told r.t. about the heartbreaking suffering his son has already been through and he saw life . you've had a project to be at even a slight cough affects him badly he's very weak his elbow has been damaged by
frequent falls as you can see his neck is injured as well all these tragedies come from war the boy spent a month in intensive care before regaining consciousness he's undergone surgery many times and will need more operations who could all his injuries he's lost all his hair. how we'd rarely gets a chance to leave hospital with his constant battle against cholera the saudi led coalition is being blamed for the widespread outbreak caused a horrific disease in you have been thought to be the worst cholera epidemic ever recorded that's after the coalition cut off supplies of medicine and food to rebel controlled areas but damning conclusions come in a study from the queen mary university of london. someone living in rebel controlled areas is seventy percent more likely to contract cholera and fifty percent more likely to die from cholera than somebody living in government controlled areas so the. international recognized governments in yemen are supported by
a saudi that coalition in this coalition has formed the rebel controlled areas pretty much most of the city. and without much concern for for civilian life. they've been civilian infrastructure so we've seen hospitals destroyed in schools destroyed the side of the coalition's when forced a naval blockade on the rebel controlled areas this means that there are shortages of food shortages of fuel shortages of medicine all of which contribute to a situation where cholera and possible. the sleepy spanish town of ripoff now lies at the center of a major investigation into last week's terrorist attacks it's where members of the terrorists behind the atrocities grew up together and were radicalized.
police investigators have identified the less rambus terrorist as. the suspected driver of the van comes from the pier and in town. police searched the apartment of an inn maman recalls it said could have been a radicalizing force. used to see them walking to buy bread on a small community until now with peacefully together but this peace has been broken . just believe in the room there are twelve people in this terrorist.
and these are the suspected members of this cell some have expressed surprise at just how young many of the boss alone are talking you know as up a yard for example was just twenty ten years old however vatican law is young men and even teens are not a new phenomenon last year a sixteen year old syrian oil was arrested on suspicion of plotting a bomb attack. this is a weekly test of the no weather radio all hazards warning device for station k.-i twenty eight in philadelphia pennsylvania during potentially dangerous weather situations

them to recognize signs of possible radicalize ation in a very early stage with toddlers and in the aftermath of. the barcelona attacks you know very good she about you know radicalization is law related terrorism or jihad isn't. but the problem could be much more widespread than previously thought across the e.u. almost five hundred cases have been found of schools with radicalized nation issues and political commentator david vons told is the root of the problem. conventionally when we talk about radicalization we normally refer to i guess young man in there perhaps leave teens or early twenty's as we've seen for example in barcelona and we've seen the horrendous consequences in this instance what we're talking about is radicalization in the kindergarten before the even got to primary
school there being an cool kid of on exposed to horrific ideas you know if we are actually having kindergartens annoy centers for potential. you know and kill kitchen of jihad theology them we've got a fundamental problem. have your say on the day stories by following to us on facebook and twitter and i'll be back in thirty minutes with morning. what is it when the swiss national bank the central bank and other central banks on behalf of governments are now the biggest owners of stocks when japan is the biggest holder of exchange traded funds that's called nationalization that's socialism and combined with the central bank the politburo that is fixing the price of money it's not a free money market for money and combined with the purchase of open houses nationalizing those assets that's pretty good communism that's nationalism that's
why this is a joke global economy is shrinking because the social breakdown of what danny blanchflower our says they're not operating in ways to free markets. the sort of situation of those. concerns on the part of the four arab countries egypt so. eurabia emirates. as relates to policies of cut up about to have to be addressed to have had a very adverse impact on our national security and the case of material evidence exists in the face of policies that have adversely impacted has created and has caused a loss of life in egypt this is an intolerable situation. here's
what people have been saying about rejected in the sixty's people on. the only show i go out of my way to you know what it's really packed a punch in the john oliver of r t america is doing the same. apparently better than. i see people you've never heard of. jack tonight president of the world bank hate. me seriously send us an e-mail. stanton glantz only learned of this case through the documents we showed him you know approaches that they used to attack the person doing the research on linking cured meats with cancer were the standard things they do one is to go through her work with a fine tooth comb and find every little thing they could possibly complain about
and because the issues tend to be fairly technical. you know if you're a politician or if you're a reporter or english or a highly specialized reporter all you hear is well this person said there was something bad and this other person said that they didn't know what they were talking about and settled these efforts to go after the scientists and to discredit the scientists is a key element of a much larger strategy to just gum up the entire policy making process to the point where nothing happens that translates into hundreds of billions of dollars of sales and profits for them so the whole game is just to slow down. in the documents on dr preston martin other even more machiavellian scenarios were studied. here it was suggested that talks be held with the scientist. here.
