to seventeen years of war in afghanistan the country is stuck in a vicious circle of violence elections assassinations and reconciliation with the world around afghanistan changing the country be able to escape the bloody cycle of . the. democrat politicians. reacting to the. media polarizing america. the media also has a responsibility. a civil tone to stop this hostility. from a. program
we talked. about this. also with the syrian opposition delegation of the russian foreign minister lavrov within twenty four hours to discuss the situation in the last remaining militant stronghold. on the program we also discussed with the international committee of the red cross. and i was completely overwhelmed by the scope of. absolutely. sure that these people can regain access to some basic. news stories of life for me and the whole crew here. welcome to the program. the u.s. president is facing a backlash. after a number of prominent u.s.
politicians received packages containing crude explosive devices c.n.n.'s headquarters were also talking to a critic say trump's divisive rhetoric and attacks on the media are in part to blame the president though in turn says it's the media those polarizing americans and fueling hostility as part of a larger national effort to bridge the divides and bring people together the media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories have to do. they just send a bomb to c.n.n. and the president doesn't say a word about that and then tells us we are to blame did you learn nothing from today. not a word for anybody not
a word about himself. the total number of eight packages were intercepted none of the apostles detonated and the mayor of new york described the incident as an act of domestic terror adding that there was an atmosphere of hate. this is a very painful time. in our nation. it's a time when people are feeling a lot of hatred in the air in addition to new york city mayor bill de blasio we have heard from the n.y.p.d. as counterterrorism chief and he has confirmed that four of the explosive devices that arrived in suspicious packages seem to have the same source the devices that were sent to barack obama and to the home of hillary and bill clinton the device that was detonated on monday at the home of billionaire george soros and the device that was found at c.n.n. headquarters all seem to have the exact same source they seem to have come from the same person the device was capable of going off these are pipe bomb like explosives
now we're also hearing at that at this point in addition to the package containing the explosive there's also been a package containing suspicious white powder discovered at the c.n.n. headquarters explosive devices had to have projectiles and that's or. excuse me that sounds like a fire alarm here we'll keep you posted on that. we evacuated the lights were turned out and as we got out. the end of the month we both still evacuated in addition to that we're hearing that at this point andrew cuomo new york city governor his office has had a package discovered at the office of maxine waters prominent democrat in california has been evacuated the office of debbie wasserman schultz former chair of the democratic national committee in florida has also been evacuated now hillary clinton has spoken up in response to today's events talking about divisiveness in u.s. politics this is hillary clinton but it is a troubling time isn't it. and it's a time of deep. division.
and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together hillary clinton others talk about you know rancor. you know the tenor of just what it's all over the place. it's everywhere there is also on another wave if you will of rhetoric and that is various democratic leaders maxine waters in eric holder who are saying you know go out there and when you say you had strong supporter in our restaurant and have at a gas station or or somewhere you get in their face when they go low we fight this rhetoric granted not on the level of pipe bombs and white powder but this is what we've been talking about all over the place. meanwhile tensions are also heating up along the us mexico border as a large migrant caravan approaches the frontier and of course with mitt looming
various politicians are certainly seeing an opportunity to school points. i've been watching for weeks as the caravan came up not letting them in and not coming in and they're not coming and. everyone in this room is an immigrant you know who in the white house it's a little bit of a different picture he was talking about this caravan the caravan the caravan caravan. there has been a sure illegal immigration recently caravan of immigrants was stopped by a group of flag waving protestors ministration official say they're working as efficiently and as effectively as possible u.s. government doesn't give them any necessity when they dropped off the bus station. shows you the challenge the trouble ministration had in dealing with the crisis they inherited from the obama administration who got
a free pass from the media on causing this crisis what happened to the democratic party as juan said bill clinton president obama understood that border security helps define a country. it's not the right or security and the. it's really believe this is a moral and humanitarian crisis we simply cannot allow people to four into the united states undetected undocumented this is what we just got from president obama he writes immigration can be a controversial topic my administration acted to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people so we are a better country than one that cares families apart we turned it into a great political football and people are still all kinds of political parents. did president obama really poured more people than any other president in total president obama had deportees more than two point five million undocumented people
by twenty fifteen. immigration becomes a political issue when there is obviously a policy on the table or some ships going out on this particular matter it is being made on both sides and i think when we get you know a dozen days away from. such a vital election not too surprising. you know i think the question is how what damaged in the kind of rhetoric from both the right you know last half hour we're not just little people but for the next time that. monsanto is facing accusations that paid tens of thousands of euros to enlist the support of farmers across europe to lobby against a ban on one of its pesticides a greenpeace also says monsanto set up fake farmers groups to promote the benefits
of the pesticide it was artie's explains some of their members are in fact very real. an investigation carried out by greenpeace says it uncovered some startling truths about how monsanto a company taurus for its controversial range of weed killers has been lurking will being its interests in the investigation alleges that hundreds of thousands of euros were spent in creating fake farmers' groups to promote the main chemical found in monsanto's products so fake farmers fake groups at least that's according to greenpeace but when. a little bit closer something didn't quite smell right greenpeace say that this lobby group in france isn't real but we are to search for the people behind the names we have earthed real farmers use it but it's free to news it's not good it's not true i'm real and i know other members
that are real farmers who work every day i'm not fake i'm not a ghost i'm a real farmer i'm passionate about my work we asked greenpeace to detail why they believe the farmers were fake despite giving the organization five days to respond greenpeace said it didn't have the capacity to get back to us as stuff was swamped so the farm is a definitely flesh and bone but who's behind this organization supporting the chemical is it the new tourists monsanto to me isn't sure why but you tube is really good if i can list the companies as i don't know them by heart but i understand why the industry and its farmers defend themselves everybody criticizes monsanto i don't want to defend them monsanto produces very little of the glyphosate in the world it's other countries and companies that produce the most. denise says he cares about the land they slant his product so why does he use
a product that's been labeled. toxic to aquatic life and is described as a probable human carcinogen by the international agency for research on cancer. although all the other and now assists in tests we're talking about eight hundred studies in the world confirm that this product is not dangerous why do we use guy for sait because it's practical because we use very diluted amounts you want to punish us by removing it while it's not considered dangerous. in a landmark ruling a judge in the u.s. awarded a former groundskeeper thirty nine million dollars after he developed cancer following exposure to the company's weed killer saying monsanto had failed to warn him of the risks monsanto denies the product causes cancer some countries aren't sold on the safety of the chemical and have already restricted its use but the pharma we talked
to is worried that a ban on the weed killer will do more harm than good if. we shouldn't forget third sif we are the only country just stop using it we will be disadvantaged the primary task of carbon emissions will increase will need to work the soil more and overuse the equipment more work hours instead of a little dose of driver seat which allows us to make the work easier and we shouldn't forget about that. almost a tickle group which now owns monsanto has dismissed claims that the chemical than question is carcinogenic despite repeated warnings made by the world health organization on exactly this issue and one agricultural expert we spoke to says the chemicals impact may only become evident over time. you know you don't see. animals and plants keeling over and dying. in an immediate manner
the problems are related to much more subtle effects on ecosystems and on human health that are linked to the sheer amount of blood for so that is being used and i believe it is essential that more research is done the science is not clear but to turn around and say that the use of. contending how besides save does not sit with the overall science. i was told that in the program here on r.t. international a delegation of syrian opposition forces is set to meet with the russian foreign minister sort of a laugh it off here in moscow inside twenty four hours we'll give you the details in just a moment. you know world big. and conspiracy it's time. to
dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell. we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. let it be an arms race. very dramatic. only. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. to sit down.
right now. a delegation of syrian opposition forces is set to meet with the russian foreign minister. right here in moscow on friday the situation in syria. was sure to be topping the agenda of the talks the two sides will also discuss the launch of a so-called constitution committee for syria and this is seen as a key step towards finding a political solution to the crisis in the country now after seven years of war it is now the only remaining militant stronghold left in the country there are an estimated thirty thousand there including ten thousand. according to numbers from the united nations a deadline for militants to pull out of a buffer zone around the province imposed on the russia brokered deescalation deal
was recently extended and roughly three million civilians live in it but each and every day they continue to flee. if you take it with me we were living in a camp life was difficult there was no aid no bread no water everything was scarce the situation was terribly bad well after the second there is barely any shelter in winter and in summer you would suffer from the heat that was our life since the first film and it was still hot and director of operations at the international committee of the red cross has just returned from eastern guta a militant stronghold recently regained by the syrian government. just returned from eastern court yesterday and. i have to say i was
completely overwhelmed by the scope of destruction in the eastern i think i have never seen anything like this in my twenty seven years of career based international committee of the red cross the scale of the needs starts starts to emerge and definitely there will be a need for huge support for all those people who are living there in these areas affected by conflict as well as for those who are returning east. of. approximately three even more than three million people who used to live there and now it's only three hundred fifty thousand and. the place where i was nearly ninety percent of the infrastructure is completely destroyed you see entire neighborhoods that are at the steroid houses that are become have become completely
unlivable. is what i was talking about the people who are back and people who are living there they can fend for themselves some of the basic needs we are distributing food on a daily basis together with the syrian arab red crescent what is now absolutely critical is to ensure that these people can regain access to some basic services such as water sanitation hales and here there is still a lot to do and again together with the syrian arab red crescent here see he's making a very serious contribution. well. particularly concerned about the possibility of escalation. of violence in that there are up to three million people living in this province.
would simply result in a humanitarian disaster so very grateful for all the efforts that have taken place in the past few months and hopefully we'll continue to avoid escalation. leap because as i said this would result in a very very serious humanitarian disaster. the whole war that has been watching the syria conflict for a force for seventy years and we have all known for a very long time that this is and continues to be the war conflict that we see very very long and yet there doesn't appear to be sufficient political convergence to bring this conflict to an end so i truly hope that we now see the end of that we will now see the end of this conflict so that humanitarian aid
can finally reach all the people of syria who are sold desperately longing for peace and need to be supported for a long time to come we definitely do all we can to convince. all those who are supporting the humanitarian effort been syria to continue supporting the people of syria as i said if anything needs are just going to grow in the coming months and years and really. the i.c.r.c. use consarned to continue our effort at the same level as in the past few years because now people are also are all all also getting more accessible and therefore we can do more and we absolutely need to make sure that we can maintain the
humanitarian effort that the levels of the previous years. the border between bosnia and croatia was the scene of yet another episode of violence between migrants and police as hundreds attempted crossing into the. demanding to enter croatia could be seen getting aggressive with police who responded by firing tear gas and using batons to disperse the crowds several people were left injured in the scuffles. has become one of europe's main entry points for migrants hoping to reach wealthy countries such as france and germany. reluctant to accept e.u. migrant protos creating a bit of a stumbling block in talks to result of my current crisis. the start of nato's largest war games since the end of the cold war tens of thousands of troops as well as warships and planes arrive for the drills and norway which of
course shares a border with russia but this is an important they. need to be used to exercise since the end old a cold war. is fictitious but the lessons we learn will be real. meantime the russian defense minister has expressed his concern about nato has increased military activity to russia's borders he said that it's reached a level not seen for nearly three decades. well the thing is that the need to use
military activity at the borders of russia has reached an unprecedented post cold war level the scope of operational military training at our borders is expanding and becoming more intense bloc countries are engaged in offensive drills the aim of all this is increased capacity to swiftly deploy troops across europe gates has been aggressive towards many countries as in wars with a number of countries right now has military in about one hundred seventy two countries has about twenty times the number of foreign military bases as all other countries combined and i see these new war games close to russia as a further and severe that aggression in this case towards russia the united states made a promise after the fall of the soviet union that it would not go into knots in nato into the warsaw pact countries or the former soviet countries and today
it's in thirteen of those countries so it never abided by that pact and this is clearly an aggressive move on the part of the united states and nato in my opinion . well i need more of your worldwide headlines still to come here on r.t. international quickly turning into a busy day for your stories and two of my hair and a half an hour's time to bring you more of the next program. prosecution will need to be criminals in this show. called where you push. the threshold finds the most up by the number one place you do i mean yeah i

a co money city with almost no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal was a said that that was a drive to see these people the survivors of a world disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in a million years i would see that and it's happened it's happened. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter us of the with one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each dish. eighty five percent of global wealth you want to be ultra rich with six percent market saw thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building
a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only number you need to remember is one one business shows you can afford to miss the one and only boom bust. as soon as an acquittal lets out a hundred. dollars such serious secure. you know i always saw was a couple. show your face and told the streets well i don't actually it's easier you know like that i don't want too much attention. here you know.
