the mountains of. headlining the islamic state fighters abandon their last stronghold in syria yielding to advancing syrian democratic forces but a top u.s. general says the fight is far from over despite donald trump for painted claims to the contrary. he claims that the migrant crisis has passed its were dismissed by hungary which warns the bloc on the brink of breaking up. and split the us democratic party disagreement on a resolution condemning anti semitism anti muslim discrimination. so we come to. bigotry racism. evil evil
is evil. there is the eighth of march it's international women's day welcome to the international i'm calling you new so far this friday hundreds. to us back forces in the syrian village of bugaboos the last i saw held area near the iraqi border and in addition to the jihadists who have surrendered there are also women and children of the sea some of them all the wives of i still fight still believe that it's not the end of the caliphate. has been a focal point for syrian democratic forces for several weeks now and despite donald trump repeatedly declaring victory over the top u.s.
general says the fight is far from over. have a look at but who's right there near the border with iraq we didn't really hear about it in the course of syria's civil war misery now's the time it is really being called the last remaining eyelet of territory in syria about to be stormed by u.s. backed kurdish troops we expect a fierce battle later at the end of the civilian evacuation given the will remain in bag who's of the ones brimming with the ideology and the ones who is not an option indeed we've seen crowds of escaping civilians and even jihad as who did choose to surrender the current say they want to make sure all innocent people make it out of the goos before the guns go off but the main still be trapped in there either not able or not keen to escape just
a short while ago though donald trump was bragging about his army and allies crushing islamic state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over ever since then however we've kept hearing absolutely different takes from those who are actually responsible for what's happening on the ground the head of u.s. central command is sure eisel hasn't surrendered he's confident it's not been defeated instead the terrorists after some tactical thinking have chosen to lay low and wait for the right time to make a comeback reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent extremism is far from over we have won against isis now we've won and at least for
now president trumps proud announcement that the american soldiers were pulling out makes less and less sense the. well out would have definitely scored mr trump some valuable political points but nothing seems to be certain here especially with this but google's thorn in the side you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of ice and see a resurgence you know are winning out we'll come back if we have to anyway whatever happens next depends on what ignites and this small but vital strip of land known as booze middle east studies professor joshua landis believes the fight against islamic state is likely to suffer further setbacks well as a general votel testified in congress recently and just today he said that. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it is not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have formed we believe that
forms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know and at some future date from the later clarified that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's a hundred ways to count troops and that may not include a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps national forces you see advisers diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so isis is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. e.u. officials are claiming the migration crisis on the continent has passed its worst
and is all but over but not all agree ministers says the bloc could break up if it continues to impose programa gratian policies his bitter all over. great news from the european commission this week the migrant crisis is over over the past four years the e.u. has made significant progress with tangible results in addressing the challenge of migration europe is no longer experiencing the migration crisis we lived through in twenty fifteen to structural problems remain it's a statement that's backed up by figures from the un refugee agency that show that one hundred twenty thousand people tried to cross the mediterranean last year and that is down almost ninety percent from the high in twenty fifteen but that doesn't mean that everything is sorted though crime statistics across europe show migrants are overrepresented in many countries the italian interior ministry say that while foreigners in the country represent only eight percent of the population they make
up over thirty percent of suspects in criminal cases. job and my colleagues jobs are to ensure security and it can be provided without supporting the smugglers and n.g.o.s that are accomplices to these criminals but by supporting those who watch the check the borders here in berlin three quarters of those in pretrial detention came from outside of germany while in norway a journalistic investigation revealed it to out of three people convicted of a violent crime were migrants those that work closely with refugees and migrants say it's no surprise that they feature so prominently in crime figures the arm are vulnerable they have experienced more trauma some of them come from violent cultures and they take it with that among those against the e.u. commission statement on gary and prime minister viktor orban has been the most vocal make that migration increases crimes especially criminal acts against women
and introduces the virus of terrorism in our midst but we cannot get stuck in our fears we have to understand that the european peoples have come to a historic crossroad. yes his government has launched an information campaign criticizing what he sees as brussels plan to encourage immigration that everyone has the right to know the proposals that fundamentally being hungry security in his mind or barnes claims are dismissed as pure politics by the e.u. commission he says he's trying to create a baseless narrative of a shadowy constant received the commission has. a vote or opinion of the guardian government complaints that distort the truth and six and seek to paint a dark picture office secrets. to drive more migration to europe allegedly so what the europeans think about claims the migrant crisis is over totally
disagree i don't think it's over now that other people are still coming just. to europe. will probably continue coming in we can't let. me can pretend it's really all that i would want some to know any of the things that the polity of the country etc. it has been worse but but. it isn't fixed that's not i don't think it's over and i don't think it will be over for a while we took a lot of people in only if you have we're only a child training or education and i think they should be integrated into society better while european chiefs may be claiming the refugee crisis is no longer a problem at the border others plea believe because the problems are already here peter all of our. place in the us democratic party deepens the u.s. house of representatives has passed a resolution condemning hate and intolerance including anti semitism and anti
muslim discrimination it was drafted and put to the vote after democratic representative was accused of being anti-semitic for criticizing the israeli government. we must reject all forms of bigotry and prejudice directed at any. of our fellow human beings just describe against one. so we come together today hopefully asshole the. bigotry racism every time that anti-semitism rears its ugly head we need to stop it how long does it take to figure out just don't know. how many times how many how many pages does it take to sign ill in the evil evil is evil how all of the resolution was passed the process of drafting the text was fraught with disagreements between party members on the only issue the democrats have been quarrelling about deeper into the divide. top democrats in congress have spent the last week drafting
a resolution condemning what they consider to be bigotry and offensive speech and it's not from trump or republicans it's from fellow democrat ilana omar the freshman congresswoman she talked about the israel lobby and they say that is offensive to jews i want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is ok for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country some democrats are demanding an apology for a comment they say represented blatant anti semitism i'm sat in the representative omari continues to mischaracterize to perjury israel i urge you to retract the statement and engaging further dialog with me on why these comments are so hurtful edition only questioning support for the us israel relationship is unacceptable so the democrats had their resolution it was all set they were ready to put it to a vote but then they had a big problem because people from their own party came out swinging against it i'm
curious if representative vargas will further explain his stance here that it's unacceptable to even question u.s. foreign policy some democrats through willing to compromise and added language to the resolution condemning islamophobia as well as anti semitism what congresswoman omar said i thought was wrong and hurtful but i also want to say that what happened linking all muslims to the terrorist attack was wrong and hurtful if you look through everything that she has said it makes no references to jews or jewish individuals to the jewish people namely because there are jewish she added. to the netanyahu government is an indication that indeed deep state if you will the democratic party structure is still in place is still strong enough and the divide is getting deeper at this point the hard left democrats are rallying around the
green new deal this is a resolution that would completely revamp america's transportation system reorient the energy markets and build lots of infrastructure at first nancy pelosi had quite a few questions about it. the green dream or whatever they call it nobody knows what it is but therefore it's right it will be one of several many many suggestions that we receive that republicans were ready to put the green new deal up for a vote but then democrats got fired up they're bringing a resolution forward so they can vote against it. this cheap cynical ploy evidently represents the sum total of senate republicans leadership on the vital issue of climate change the same goes for impeachment the democratic socialists one trump ousted right away when your silence is used as home alone if you want bullies don't wait and see things out because we're going to go in there really some of
them. but the top dog democrats say they should cool their heels before you impeach somebody you have to persuade the american public that it ought to to happen you have to persuade enough of the opposite of the opposition party voters sort of trump voters this fight didn't begin in twenty nine team back during the twenty sixteen democratic primary rank and file leftists felt as if the nomination had been robbed from them and later wiki leaks confirmed that it was indeed a rigged against them and they didn't forget about it either. did video from last night really feel like they are being shut out. thank you. for. the change that is
happening in the democratic party is something that started with the recent elections the roots of moderate and brute others young progress are pushing for new ideas i think that is a sign to who that perhaps more popular involvement in the project could. the democrats and twenty sixteen trump swept in democratic socialist wing wants to take the democratic party in a new direction as well but there are some pretty solid and entrenched leaders who are determined to stop the fusing to allow the conservative fox news channel to host any of its debate during the twenty twenty presidential election campaign donald trump's threatening to do the same with pro-democratic channels where he hasn't specified which ones. recent reporting in the new york only inappropriate relationship between president trump his administration and fox news has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates therefore fox news will not serve as
a media partner for the twenty twenty democratic primary debates democrats just block fox news from holding a debate good then i think i'll do the same thing with the freak news networks and the radical left democrats in the general election debates in announcing their decision to boycott fox news the democrats cited a report in the new yorker magazine describing the close relationship between the channel and the trump ministration it says that the network has turned into trump's propaganda machine and the article points out the various fox news pundits are now working in the trump of ministration they include former fox co president bill shine who is now the white house communications director it also claims citing sources that trump was given advance notice of a primary debate question with the help of the now deceased former head of fox news roger ailes although the leak of a debate question on the other side of the political spectrum in twenty sixteen was actually confirmed former c.n.n. commentator donna brazil admitted that she used her position to give
a heads up to hillary clinton on the questions of the c.n.n. hosted debate in twenty sixteen she was working as a party chairwoman at that time political commentator steve multiple seeds of the democrats' response as hypocritical. you know how many members of the obama administration are now staffing the positions at c.n.n. and m.s.n. b.c. and n.b.c. and c.b.s. and a.b.c. the whole thing is just of seen and ridiculous in the tank they all are the opposition to donald trump they're not fair and balanced if you want to call it they hate trump so much so you know how we're going to take it from fox news fox news is the epitome and the body image of all that's evil in the world i think one way or another see it motivates their base and they were just looking for some excuse to pull off of fox and then they came up with an excuse the white house is urging him to leave not to join beijing's belton road infrastructure project and that's causing
a strong reaction from china among all stories still ahead. can socialism bring about a radian future a growing number of voters seem to think so what are these voters and some members of congress mean by socialism free stuff for all the state controlling the means of production orders. why are so many falling out of money with capitalism. you know world's big partners through the mud and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell us more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the bad 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 for watching the hawks. welcome back china has defended its growing partnership with italy after criticism from the united states its after the white house urged roman not to join beijing's belton road infrastructure project. we've you built and road initiatives he made by china for china initiative we're skeptical the italian government's indorsement will bring any sustained economic benefits to the italian people and it may end up harming italy's global reputation in the long run this position taken by the u.s.
side is lawful as a major country italy knows exactly what policies serve its own interests and it can make its decisions independently run is expected to sign up to the initiative when chinese president xi jinping visits at the end of the month italy's coalition government is talking up the benefits one way for us to increase trade values is to first increase investment this is done by these memorandums one belt one road it is a very fertile area for investment the belton road initiative spans three continents all the way from china across to europe and africa and to the indian subcontinent as well as planned that connects nearly two thirds of the world's population by linking k. cities via roads railways and ports beijing's pledged a trillion dollars in infrastructure development over the course of the next decade towards this however the united states has expressed security concerns over the project and it's questioning china's motives sociologist paolo bernardino he believes italy has much to gain from the initiative. clearly there is
a strong because of the political crisis because the last numbers they are taking advantage of these lies is to act in this particular not a single frankly. i mean. what it would be. telling us what we have to do at all you are acting for the poor the benefit also for the benefit of the environment i'm an american i think would be a great advantage for me. several points of view it would be really really people i was intimate if they were in trade. was the both of. you asked by way of the. sea and all the stupid beneficial for you there would be a new link between the same great continent all the way through and i don't see any potential damage for the united states on the sponsor and the. young people in the u.k. taking a trip across the pond it's becoming less about attraction with many of them
blaming donald trump for making the united states uncool reporting from london. that transatlantic road trip they used to be most students dream holiday things like route sixty six or recreating the journeys of the beatniks from the road or feminist fugitives like bella and louis s. but according to the u.k.'s biggest youth travel operator the kids of today no longer consider the us a cool destination backpacking trips and holidays over to america are down twenty three percent from the start of the year and the travel operators are blaming it on something called the trump slump they say that socially conscious millennial is an generation's ias a shining america because their perch off by none other than the president himself would you shun would you shun a trip to the u.s. because of trouble yeah i can understand why people boycott and make so would you
very sure merica on holiday would it be kind of top of your list of where you want to go not the top of a line on him i don't know she's never really appealed to me and especially with all the poses going on and so it's not like there's a no you prefer to go some are a bit more. culturally appropriate. would you want to go to america or just donald trump but you will know all too personally so you not pull the i'll go america which you. do you go to trip you have the opportunity to go to america you still go you know like i wouldn't care but don't try to i don't like what he does but like i like to go but it's probably not to my lists for me just so we moneywise maybe i'd like to have me and but i think i think going for a holiday those very different going over that's live all i see is migration and everything and so i really kind of choose to live i think that everything going on is quite intense and i think i want to but then again you know the whole thing is like parts and stuff so you know it's already great very that bastion of hard even
here to say. you know coming to the. you carry because of political situations that really should have an impact on people choosing the whole data scenary should say still still travel. america is great i don't know about in denver colorado where we're where we're from but i can tell you i don't like don't very much if you aren't from the us would you go to the us on holiday probably not really why don't . i probably just want to stay here where where i know what's going on where there's no chaos whatsoever and it's still very very calm on advertising here to. take on terror merica. dozens of orthodox jews have been arrested in a crackdown on anti conscription demonstrations in jerusalem. god iraq
was thousand. security forces used water cannon mounted officers to disperse the protests that disrupted traffic for several hours according to israeli law all true orthodox jews were exempt from treatment and service but they still need to receive a deferral notice from the army otherwise they risk being seen as draft dodgers and the rest of. it's been an exciting few days in football's champions league title holders rael madrid crashed out on tuesday while wednesday still porto and manchester united go through to the quarter finals all three teams have one thing in common they were all once managed by cho say marino who's back on r.t. with a new series on the touchline. they were not afraid to play at the bell the guys assured great. you know they put the needle in the wall
when things go wrong. everybody goes into the direction of the guilty man there's a. much lesser not the results of phenomenal results eventis man city barcelona bind to take the last political of the i would go with the. job say and everybody speculates about where you're going next can you give us any hints now i'm going home. i hope to be working in the in the summer i promised one day that is unsing to say i relax and. so show premiered here yesterday if you missed the launch episode you'll find it on you tube page right that's the way it looks so far this friday i'm calling moscow
most people think just stand out in this business you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest race in truth to stand out in the music business you just need to ask the right questions and demand the right answer. questions. during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was most of my family were unemployed working. there wasn't it was bed you know much worse objectively than today but there was an expectation of the things were going to get better. there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america was shaped by the ten
principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduce democracy attack solo down engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles according to. one set of rules for the rich opposite. that's what happens when you put her into the. narrow sector of will switch will is dedicated to increasing power for chills just as you'd expect one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america.
