are broadcasting live and direct our studios in moscow recapping the week's top stories with our weekly program this is r.t. international now the leader of north korea has told his nuclear scientists to step up their bomb making efforts kim jong un was speaking on saturday at a huge party to mark the country's sixty ninth anniversary pyongyang has continued to defy warnings from the u.s. government. enough is enough i think enough is enough the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now time is short action is required our country's patience is not unlimited the policy of strategic patience is over or is never something the united states wants the united states does not seek conflict only the strongest sanctions will enable us to resolve this problem through diplomacy to all of our counterparts need to impose dissensions we will defend our allies and our territory the united states is prepared to use the full range of our
capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies earlier the u.s. rejected a russian chinese a plan for a double freeze initiative under the scheme north korea would halt its nuclear and ballistic missile tests and in return america and south korea would stop their joint military exercises but the pentagon has shown no sign of scaling back its role in south korea had recently announced plans to provide extra troops and weapons for u.s. bases in the country an aircraft carrier strike group says anti-missile ships as well as fighter jets and helicopters will be sent to south korea and as artie's jacqui invoke explains the crisis means a big profits for arms makers in the north korean threat is something we hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials but the statements pouring bremer and grammar and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for war. they will be met with fire fury the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now this may not get away with
what he's doing lately and the urgency is still strong the u.s. rolling out a range of american made weapons to save the day on offer for remaining rocket launchers for the u.s. missile defense system for south korea also increased amounts of highly sophisticated military equipment which trump this kind we allowing both south korea and japan to purchase and the infamously troubled after. high fighter jets also be added to that package i think i'm funny but not free of course but look forget that north korea is by no means the only threat to global security and america for decades iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror threatening the region and causing so much of by lintz all nations of conscience must work together to isolate and all of those attacks are music to the ears of saudi arabia an american ally and fellow detractor of iran so of course riyadh was all too ready to
sign a one hundred ten billion dollar defense deal with from neighboring qatar also agreed to buy over twenty one billion dollars worth of american military hardware now trying to approach the conflict is definitely pragmatic make a quick buck if you can right and clearly this guy can sell anything even man a spine the way to been continuing america's sixteen year long war in afghanistan as the prime minister of afghanistan has promised we are going to participate in economic development to help defray the cost of this war to us hey if you can't solve the problem see if you can at least turn a healthy profit instead of i'm a businessman that's what i'm supposed to do that's what i'm supposed to do i think a lot of people project on the behavior of the united states maybe of other countries that it's all about business it's all about making money for the arms manufacturers of the plane manufacturers and so forth the people who make missiles the militarization of the policy of using military threats and military force is
the only item in our tool kit his sudden how become so ingrained in their mentality they really don't consider other alternatives you have people who believe that the united states is and must be the global head of one that every solution must be solved by a detached from washington and whatever force and threats are necessary to achieve that end will be employed. this week of the syrian army secured a key victory in the fight against islamic state breaking a three year blockade of the city of berries or a local journalist giana more chad has details for us to. see that only unit regained full control over the final round most quader in throes of their l's over said he and the international highway of their results now this is a cheese month come just off to work a few days of. lifting full siege of the in the city of their resort and
just a few hours after they broke the siege of eyes the militants on the military airport and it is or. this achievement also should the determination of syrian and drash and governments to it is a key to extremism on the syrian soil some analysts and observers believe that this is would be in maintaining points in the war against goal is to liberate all that is the initial areas that are just a few of those areas then szell areas and districts in the hands of extremists civilians live is going to be much easier from now on and their suffering will and the syrian army has been advancing rapidly in recent months in june islamic state controlled around a quarter of the country but three months on around half that territory has been lost during the army's advance on there is or it was gaining around eight commers a day the breaking of the siege triggered celebrations among soldiers and civilians
of the the the main fifty four and then be on for food can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in some pocket jihad these still. hold sway so it going at beth beth going to take a number of months before the syrian government really control over the whole of syria. just to two weeks to go before germany's federal election chancellor merkel has been out on the campaign trail but not everything has been going her way . chancellor was booed at a rally on thursday and two days earlier she was hit by a tomato thrown from the crowd at a similar event but it wasn't just demonstrators who got in the way of her speeches
while addressing parliament she was interrupted by her main rival from the social democrats for taking credit for their work. that's been used by thick sounding unfairly by name the few months humans. eating it has. i. if it isn't my thing i was really you know side about being mind that when you inspect it when clinton is in parliament it's nice. that she was here and we all know merkel looks is said to win a fourth term as chancellor with polls giving her party a clear lead over the social democrats the left party trails in third place with the free democrats behind them and then the anti immigration alternative for
germany party is expected to gain its first seats in parliament or he peter all over takes a closer look at the election. with most pundits already calling this german election a win for. schultz there isn't a great deal of intrigue what's more exciting though has been the battle for third place and who will perhaps become the kingmaker in the next coalition government. documents are the piece. of guns. i want to have close to the mouth of. the president to.
bring some scandal and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the political scene it's all to germany it looks like they will and to call it the bush timing following this election and they run on a message against. policy even drafted in one of the out agencies that helped promote trump in his campaign. good alternative for germany is not going to be called to the any coalition with. likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic. liberal business they charisma and photogenic leader has appeared front and center however he does appear to have lifted so of his migration policy right out of the alternative think jodi
playbook if peace prevails refugees must. choose a new place in the womb. i'm not being harsh this is really speaking the a.f. did may prove to be a wise move as he looks to shore up his own party's position basically this is just a political maneuver to get more voters from this from this side of the spectrum f.t.p.'s at the moment constantly collecting in all kinds of fields voters for example with all these digital subjects and now with this new statement about refugees they try to pick of course also people from the if the from the right wing side the likud has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time outs at the end lagging way behind in the polls there's even the possibility that we could see into the grand coalition with the social democrats on this when it comes to coalition possibilities there are even some that would see him do a little not be good
a chancellor of germany however the most realistic options are that the free democrats will not only return to the fold to start following september the twenty olds vote but that they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all of us in. the russian government responded angrily this week it to the seizure of diplomatic compounds in the us videos of f.b.i. agents on the roof of the san francisco consulate also ripping up the ceiling were released by the russian foreign ministry agents checked basements and attics drawers and cupboards with moscow claiming the whole operation made no sense washington is expected unexpected move rather sparked outrage in moscow russian officials described it as a gross violation of international law and an openly hostile act against russia meanwhile the u.s. state department spokes person faced
a barrage of questions after she referred to the searches as a tour of the facilities. this is normal does that include i'm sorry sorry what's your name let's move on move on to something else if you still consider that sovereign russian property or were those property searched because there was a concern that they were being used for intelligence purposes which would be like a different issue i'm just not going to get into that let's let's not let's move on to something else here in russia or any other point treat us missions that if they cheated had been searched by the host. governments you know what i don't know if you are working for r.t. today or what but i think the member. at the start of this month of the us ordered russia to close three diplomatic premises with just forty eight hours notice immediately after the eviction officers searched the san francisco consulate and trade missions in new york and washington in response president vladimir putin ordered the foreign ministry to take legal action. because because the american
counterparts didn't let russia use its property it's a violation of property rights i will tell the foreign ministry to go it's a coup see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the u.s. works. two days after putin's remarks the u.s. state department had this to say. we would like that's relationship to improve we don't want to continue this kind of diplomatic tit for tat people in the united states need to get over this anti russia hysteria and that's what it is that's being. by the media here and americans need to call for more friendly and constructive relations with russia it's my firm opinion that russia all along has want to friendly relations has wanted the u.s. as a partner and there's no reason that we should reject that all of branch that i think russia has been holding out for some time on us entering that property was a violation of the vienna conventions. and i don't know where it's going to and i
city is not coming from the trump administration which is being victimized by this the imaginary hobgoblin of the russian collusion with the trump campaign is being used by enemies and adversaries to do. welcome back you're watching the weekly here on r t international now hurricane has slammed into the southern coast of florida bringing storm surges and sustained winds of one hundred eighty kilometers per hour these are the latest pictures from the city of naples which is near the eye of the storm entire roads have been turned into rivers more than six million people have fled the storm's path in the biggest

out by officers he later caught a bus and got past a checkpoint with the help of hundreds of locals who overpowered the guards now the former official was once a close ally of ukraine's president but they fell out last year after saakashvili accused petro poroshenko of blocking efforts to tackle corruption has also made plenty of enemies in his homeland in georgia as well and also in russia political commentator martin summers told us saakashvili dealings with ukraine show the deep chaos and gripping the country. relieved self is wanted for corruption in georgia as we know of course the danger of him coming back this is that the ukrainian authorities are full met with the most experience in but it's georgia to face trial there so he's taking a bit of a risk by trying to come back into the country is very old play such a big role in ukrainian politics unseasoned ukrainian and being given the governorship of the adesa region which is very keen region especially because it's cold last russian population parachuted in really boy boy the western powers i
think what's going on is just shows how in disarray and in politics all. you know the revolutionists and incredibly sour nobody really knows what to do next the colonies in free fall they're not going to be joining the european union and so on saying they talking about joining nato but all that will do is pursue potentially spall for the war. the work of tank crews was honored in russia on sunday to mark the event are to go went to take a test drive in a bonafide war machine. there's a battle ready frank quite all the training range but before i get close to it i have to test the doggie to re myself.
you know. we don't like that living but i call those those in. one of my goals is a test drive to see if a person with a regular license like myself can get this t. a t. go in. the driver's seat is right here. here we go. this dirt everywhere. trust me there is not much room in here. so. there is no steering turn right. but go on right now.
when you're driving a regular. or. the other way. but. first. let's get a little. mylan one of the shills well obviously i didn't do that well but at least i didn't get off track and i'll tell you what these guys got a really tough job aside from firing the cannon and three told me everyone at the base has the skills to easily drive the eighty three times faster than me
but the wind would seem much smoother and we agreed to this so i know other test will i spill any water from this cup if and pray is driving that tack and if he goes full throttle. i built by him. old far so good. whoa whoa. i managed to keep the car almost full good job and drink i'm going to tell him about a. little while i did but if i did it still made up would feel if i'd see enjoyed it but i leave. you have a drink or moscow region. should set up. and there you have it more news coming up in about thirty five minutes time you
watch mark international and the weekly stay with us. i'm a trial lawyer i've spent countless hours poring through documents that tell the story about the abuse i will. corporate media reach uses to talk about the current. i'm going to paint a clear picture about how disturbing council for conduct has been in march these are stories that you no know. tony your host of american. question. i do not know if the russian state into john podesta e-mails and gave them to wiki leaks but i do know barack obama's director of national intelligence has not provided. to support his claims. i also know he self in a senate hearing. for the revelations provided by edward snowden he denies the
n.s.a. was carrying out wholesale surveillance of the u.s. . the hyperventilating corporate media has once again proved to be an echo for government claims that. you would have thought they would have learned something after serving as george w. bush's useful idiots in the lead up to the invasion of iraq. it is vitally important that the press remains rooted in a fact based universe especially when we enter an era when truth and fiction are becoming indistinguishable.
would you have for breakfast yesterday why would you put those sure. what your biggest fear was in a big moment a right when. you say if you have a man who's the best quarterback. it's a sociable. question more. my passion tonio and this is america's lawyer to say that the justice system of the united states is broken would be a gross understatement corporations and corrupt politicians are taking control over the just judicial branch of our government entirely turning the once impartial
judiciary into a tool that the elite used for political gain one of the more well known instances of politicians using the justice system to achieve their own ends was the prosecution of former alabama governor don siegelman governor siegelman was specifically targeted by officials within the george w. bush administration because they wanted to take back the governor's office in alabama. governor siegelman will join us to tell his story and to talk about why our justice system is in such a disaster and later in the show a look at how female entrepreneurs are saying enough is enough to make male investors in silicone valley actually play right where it comes to sexual harassment so don't go anywhere america's lawyer starts now.
don siegelman was sworn in as governor of alabama in january nine hundred ninety nine in for the start of his term his republican opponents set out to take him down by any means necessary siegelman a democrat in a very red state drew the ire of republicans in alabama so they turned to dirty tricks master call rove the architect behind george w. bush's entire presidency rove in the republican operatives came up with a plan to have siegelman investigated for alleged bribery after he pointed a campaign donor named richard scrushy to a position of the state hospital board and it was a position that screw she had already held under several republic. and governors from the very beginning it was obvious that these charges would never stick they couldn't stick but rove and his associates managed to find just the right prosecutor just the right judge and even a jury that eventually convicted siegelman and soon to prison there have been.
