a standoff between rights groups. is heating up. international report accusing the. disrespectful. the iraqi security forces have put the safety of civilians is the absolute centerpiece of the liberation of the city in providing support to the iraqi security forces we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that when we strike we only kill the enemy by using explosive weapons with wide area effect on disproportionate airstrikes in densely populated areas the u.s.

led coalition and iraqi forces fail to adapt their tactics to the reality on the ground when i during the n.t.i. saw operating in mosul iraq and u.s. led forces used unguided artillery rockets mortars and improvised bombs as weapons are highly imprecise and according to human rights watch they use in heavily populated areas like mosul can be quote unlawfully indiscriminate the coalition also used white phosphorus which in some cases is allowed under international law however charles schumer a former counterterrorism intelligence officer says the use of white phosphorus phosphorus and populated areas will likely be considered a war crime. if these weapons such as white phosphorus or. tools such as white phosphorus are used as weapons in civilian areas it is likely to constitute a war crime in any case because you are using a weapon that is an incendiary against civilians or in
1:03 am
a way that is reckless as to whether civilians are endangered and therefore it would be could consider it because it is a disproportionate use of that tool as a weapon the obligation legally is to use weapons in a proportionate amount of minimize the risk as far as is possible to civilians but what we see again and again isn't just the use of heavy weapons such as a five hundred thousand pound two hundred fifty five hundred kilo weight bombs and so on being used heavy weapons from across. the indiscriminate unguided weapon such as rocket launchers such as artillery and mortars these can be quite accurate but many of them on not we saw a position weapons being used by the americans a couple of months ago that the target was to kill to isis snipers and yet one hundred four civilians were admitted body americans to have been killed in that attack even using precise weapons. after the victory over i

saw in mosul u.s. command warned the iraqi government about the possible reemergence of the terrorist organization caleb maupin delves deeper into the story. making sure that i still doesn't set up shop again might be just as hard as getting rid of it in the first place amal everyone is celebrating the liberation of mosul a top u.s. commander in iraq says to be aware of isis two point zero if we keep isis two point zero from the much of the iraqi government is going to have to do something pretty significantly different so what exactly should the iraqi government do differently any advice i think the primary condition that caused the rise of isis was the fact that a significant portion of the iraqi population this case the sunni's disaffected the iraqis have to make sure after isis is defeated that all iraqis view the government in baghdad is their government so sectarian violence is the main destabilizing
1:05 am
factor now didn't everything start to go wrong a few years back after a certain little military intervention you know iraq invasion one point zero the consequence was that as we were trying to rehabilitate the country for those elements we're trying to rid. terry of violence and that is what we did not foresee so after reducing a formerly stable country to over a decade and a half of chaos the usa now warns baghdad that it better start building bridges and enforcing reconciliation the usa for its part intends to stay the iraqi government has expressed an interest in having the u.s. forces and coalition forces remain after the defeat of isis our government is equally interested in that as are several coalition governments have expressed an interest in joining in that effort so all of this help with sectarian violence the violence in iraq and syria has only made the long standing feud between the sunni and the shia worse on top of that you have the kurds in their upcoming independence
1:06 am
referendum a lot of this sounds like shutting the barn door after the horse has already bolted it's almost like a case of now. national amnesia we forgot what happened in two thousand and three when president bush said mission accomplished we've done everything we need to do a great victory the reality is that just created the problems that we're still fighting today so the idea that we're going to do the same thing which is to defeat so-called enemy there and then remain indefinitely and somehow the result will be different i think it is an absolute fantasy so we won't necessarily turn iraq into switzerland if we leave but it's inevitable but that somehow the iraqis will have to solve their own problems in one way or the other so stay or go it looks like either way the united states will have to make the best of a bad choice what mop and artsy new york. the pentagon has briefed the german military on the new f.
1:07 am
thirty five fighter jet as the european nation considers it as a possible replacement for aging tornado jets however the possible procurement has raised some eyebrows given germany's participation in the competing eurofighter typhoon program. jacquelin berger examines whether the f. thirty five would make a good substitute. the f. thirty five was meant to be the ultimate aircraft the swiss army knife fighter jets ready and equipped for everything the project has been years in the making worked on by the brightest minds from all over the globe and has cost billions and billions of dollars. some write well the creation of this jack of all trades plane has been
1:08 am
a bumpy road the project has seen numerous drafts due to various issues including having the blueprints stolen at one point and the budget has expanded over time as well nearly doubling the initial figure of thirty five's program programs record of performance has been both a scandal and a tragedy that his experience issues with cost is going to become completely in affordable aircraft deliveries amount to no more than a mere trickle relative to the original promises of the program what's going to happen with that employee is going to die a slow when i get to his in the day so what is so great about the f. thirty five it must be perfect for air combat well now and according to a report released by the department of defense it displays objectionable or on acceptable flying qualities but surely it has top notch perception accuracy again no only if the target is clearly marked and undefended the department of defense says the f. thirty five will be forced to fly much closer to the ground to engage targets and
1:09 am
those will likely need to be only lightly defended ones at most well at least it must be great for a pilot to fly running thanks. thank you. try has it been a good value well now it's been dubbed the most expensive plane anywhere ever i think you know the answer i know its production costs could yet again up another seven percent hitting four hundred six point five billion dollars just for a bit of perspective belgium's entire g.d.p. in two thousand and fifteen was four hundred and fifty four billion dollars so with all of that in mind you think the project might have been reconsidered already i think the united states government is to fall too far along with what the f. thirty five just to abandon it at this point you have other governments now that
1:10 am
have committed in there whether nato and nato but surely when so much money has been thrown at it there must be something to be proud of so what is it good it's not good at anything what do you think a turkey can fly at least a little bit about something jack of r t washington d.c. . and pasta in moscow u.k. opposition parties have the government over its refusal to publish a report on the funding of terrorism in the country the decision was announced by the home secretary. i have decided against publishing the classified report produced in the review in full this is because of the volume of personal information it contains and for national security reasons a lot of politicians have been waiting a long time for this report the home office had been criticized for delaying it
1:11 am
earlier on this year but now the fact that it's not going to be released at all has sparked a lot of anger from various opposition parties tim farron the outgoing leader of the liberal democrats he said that it's utterly shameful that it's not going to be published he said that the government needs to be naming and shaming the states and the institutions that fund terrorism in this country instead of supporting them he's obviously referring to speculation that saudi arabia and the u.k. as of the gulf allies could be named in that report the green party co-leader caroline lucas she said that the statement gives absolutely no clue as to which foreign countries are funding extremism here in the u.k. so you've got the government saying that the report publishing the report would be damaging to national security but as this angry response already demonstrates refusing to make it public has only increased speculation about what's contained
1:12 am
within it it's pretty much as vague as it gets it doesn't list a single country it admits that for a small number of extremist organizations here in the u.k. overseas funding is a significant source of income however it says the vast majority of extremist groups in the u.k. overseas funding isn't a significant source it also says that it's going to introduce more stringent checks on where overseas funding comes from for some of nonprofit organizations and things like charities and at the very end of this very short vague summary it says as part of our wider international engagement on countering extremism and. island extremism the government is going to raise the issues of concern supported by evidence with specific countries and that last line really contains the million dollar question who are this specific countries and why is the government to
1:13 am
term and to keep them secret journalist mike ruddy told us the report was deliberately buried due to financial interests whenever we hear national security concerns usually a euphemism for the jeopardy of corporate interests and in this case obviously the corporate interests of those would be a systems because the kingdom of saudi arabia the autocratic regime is one of the biggest customers and we're selling weapons that will inevitably end up on the battlefields of syria in the hands of isis and al-qaeda groups and then also be used in yemen to kill civilians so that's a crucial part of the british economy is selling weapons for a. reason in the gulf allies to kill one another. the u.s. president is due in paris on thursday for a two day visit amid disagreements with the french leader a donald trump and emanuel to hold a meeting later today and attend the annual parade on france's national day on

elected to run this country business because. it's not business is business like it's never been done before. and i thank you joining us here on our. analogies in u.s. politics have become something of a trend this time the victim was fox news host tucker carlson for suggesting the u.s. should work with russia in syria and i just accept that people who are bad people share interest and you sound like chinese leaders in one hundred thirty eight saying hillary has been attacked i think he's insane he you can think it's insane all you want he's compared me to a nazi apologist because i asked a simple question he is as bad as hitler well as soon as i stepped into office so the fear of comparisons started flooding in. now the scrubwoman is
1:19 am
hand in hand with i know the classiest choice trump being there reminded me of hitler addressing the nazi party can i feel better in these streets a moustache traded for a jew i like ninety percent of what he says i'm like this guy gets it however protesters may have been given a taste of their own medicine and they were filmed cheering a rally speech by pranksters comprised entirely of quotes by i don't think. there is one thing we must never forget richard you can never replace them their life is like a mirror. if you smile they return. donald trump seems to be true for you don't worry until it frequently you know it will be only it's not the truth that matters. right.
1:20 am
or political analyst charles will tell told us the extreme allegations against trump supporters are being used as a destruction. just think there's an element on the left that is very fond of gaslighting that is to say when trouble is approaching they come up with the most incendiary comments to distract from the real damage that's going to come the hillary clinton side they've they've come up with this enormous canard they get the press whipped up and over here our mainstream press moves in lockstep so if the theme comes down that we've got to compare trump to hitler you'll see the washington post do it the new york times the mainstream media c.n.n. and cetera and i don't recall and i wasn't following it continually during obama's eight years i don't recall protracted assaults against obama under a theory that he was some kind of hitler to call somebody hitler may that's a very serious accusation to make if you know anything at all about history and so i think the people who are making those accusations today should be ashamed of

themselves. the u.s. tested its missile system on tuesday by shooting down a simulated incoming intermediate range ballistic missile similar to the one in the jet li being developed in north korea a young yang has warned that any kind of military confrontation will quote inevitably lead the u.s. to self-destruction and evolve to turn america into a pile of. the us drill had been planned months ago however it is being seen as a response to north korea's latest missile test a week ago. after that test expressed dissatisfaction with china for not putting more pressure on north korea auntie's emily sue investigates. even before the eleven missile tests north korea conducted this year the u.s. has long demanded beijing to do more to curb pyongyang's nuclear program this rhetoric even got a term of its own the china responsibility theory which angered beijing if you don't don't change you should condone joyner is neither
1:22 am
a focal points of contradictions over the issue no real driving force behind the current escalation of tensions on the peninsula if china is striving to put out the foil while the other is a fueling the flame how can china's if it's achieved expected outcomes how can the tension be eased to be fair china is only major diplomatic ally and key economic partner so makes sense for the u.s. and others to urge beijing to use its leverage on north korea china and other regional partners should also step up their efforts to help shove the security situation we need to work together to deal with some of the pressing difficult issues such as the threat from north korea but is it fair to expect beijing to ease tensions on the peninsula while washington fans the quizes by flexing its military muscles in the region every chance it gets.
1:23 am
on top of that we are talking about trump and kim two politicians who have little to agree on except maybe their desire for attention and this is how people think north korea does it you want to see what. you're. doing i would. just baby some attention. china understands what the p.r. nyang government actually thinks that came junk in government thinks they believe that nuclear weapons are absolutely essential for their own security the u.s. government carries out war exercises simulating the destruction of north korea twice a year they just did a nuclear bomb dropping drill. the chinese never had the ability to tell north korea what to do donald trump either did not understand this another words a failure on his part to actually understand the relationship or he was just trying to do arm twisting against china but we can see now from china's statement that they have run out of patience that they consider it to be an abrogation of u.s.
1:24 am
responsibility to find a way to come to a solution in the korean crisis bear in mind that north korea also said its ruling to return to the negotiating table if the u.s. is willing to meet the hermit state halfway namely to stop large scale joint military exercises with south korea and this is how the u.s. responded you know that has to be denuclearization the secretary said he's not going to negotiate his way back to the negotiating table plain and simple so instead of the china responsibility theory perhaps washington should stop provoking north korea and take heed of a chinese proverb don't fan the flames support the fire or next to an awesome international puerto rico. and that's what joining us from the u.k. larry king doll thank you.
