6:08 am
a state that has nothing to do with their that's a statement now trumps remarks are just the latest in a series of aggressive exchanges between the president n.p.r. news but has escalated to the point of north korea state media outlining a possible plan to attack the u.s. territory of guam a threat that trump says john own will not get away with and when the question was posed to the president if americans should be frightened by the current state of affairs trump said in fact the opposite is true that north korea should be the nervous party here if. north korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack. of anybody that we love what we represent do our allies or us they could be very very nervous i'll tell you why they should be very dubious because things will happen to them like they never thought possible north korea better get their act together where they're going to be trouble like few days should ever have been to trouble in this world now while term profuse
6:09 am
a comment on whether the u.s. . it was considering a preemptive strike against pyongyang he spoke about the importance of the u.s. military and his plans to drastically beef up their defense budgets by quote many billions of dollars and this is all because of the threat posed by north korea and a strange twist will trump spoke of strengthening america's arsenal he also warned that nuclear power is the world's greatest threat stating that he would like to denuclearize the world yet on wednesday he tweeted about the us a strong and powerful nucular stockpile hinting that it could be used if necessary so while other nations are still pushing for a democratic resolution threats flying back and forth seem to be pushing the world closer and closer to the edge of war with possible nuclear implications however america's close allies of britain germany are calling on the u.s. president to deescalate tensions well even at home also facing the opposition u.s. senator says the whole style of rhetoric is the opposite of what's needed and could sleepwalk the country into war we also spoke to a former u.s. ambassador to the u.n.
6:10 am
who says that such threats put trump on the same level as north korea's leader. i don't see the plus in these threats were we getting something in return from these president's threats i don't see it i've never seen that tension so high in the korean peninsula i'm extremely concerned i hope the president's advisors rein him in general kelly you know the new chief of staff he's got to tell the president you can't conduct foreign policy the way you're doing with words with fiery words exchanges stooping to the level of kim joe moon in the north koreans who generate this rhetoric almost every day but this rhetoric has gotten a lot more intense also from the north korean side and china meanwhile has condemned trump's fire and fury remarks beijing warned the u.s. president against playing with fire over north korea it said any accidental spock
6:11 am
could trigger a conflict what's more chinese state media reports the country will protect the north korean regime if indeed the u.s. decides to strike. now the possibility of military confrontation is causing a split among america's allies australia says it will stand shoulder to shoulder with washington but new zealand says it's not ready to support any aggressive military action. we stand shoulder to shoulder with the united states the anzus treaty millions that if america has attacked we will come to their right if a stranger is attacked the americans will come to our right we are joined at the hip the american alliance is the bedrock of our national security committing to i'm aggressive response now while encouraging all involved to avoid risk is not a position we want to take a trumps turn of phrase when it comes to north korea has not gone unnoticed on social media twitter users getting the impression the president's becoming more
6:12 am
like a character from a popular t.v. series caleb maupin has more. when donald trump threaten north korea with fire and fury everyone online apparently had the same thought game of thrones north korea best not make it work threats to the united states. they will be met with a five year period. like the world has never seen. now arguably the only other world leader whose tirade sound as much like a fantasy villains is kim jong un so we decided to go out and give americans on the street a little quiz we'll give them the quote and they tell us was it was it kim jong un or was it game of thrones the days are gone forever when our enemies could blackmail us game with their own game of thrones. game of thrones out.

6:15 am
or anyone else but criticizing bigoted intolerant ideas is entirely right and proper i hold the likes of peter who i have a lot of respect for the human rights over the years he's deeply misguided that what he supports an organization that has made it mission to demonize islam and the religious belief of muslims in this country around the world many of us who are marching or individuals from muslim heritage so i myself am a british pakistani who grew up as a gay individual in with and this is my community i have no interest in galvanizing hate against muslims because i will be subjected to that same hate this group was targeting islam must homophobia it wasn't targeting muslim people or even islam in german or the council of muslims has never criticized or condemned muslim people
6:16 am
it is only condemned and criticized is the most extremists who advocate hatred and violence against the people if these people are left and that's their right let's accept that they got a right to live there why are they constantly obsess about islam they need to get a life move on enjoy their life on their new freedom as they tell is asking us to leave the religion and then be silent about. kin across the world who are being victimized by muslim states is a request they are rampant islam or for big organization they are responsible for promoting hatred against muslims now let's just say that is there a council of christians is there a council of jews a council of x. induce a council of x x where religion is legislating against people like gays we will challenge that and we will challenge. i was. always. a very

6:19 am
commissioners racking up hefty bills on foreign joints with the usual tabs left as per norm well to be picked up by the e.u. tax payers. visit. by john the first visits to your country our meetings today encounter with foreign minister discussion good discussions on a range of issues a wide strange of issues and also talked a lot. of european commission i'm presiding over is not
6:20 am
a group of technocrats but it's composed of politicians this is not a commission that would promote the virtues of a foolish and blind policy. but it's not only about money. even if that since. it doesn't play a minor role. the lavish lifestyles of e.u. officials were only exposed off the campaign has waged a three year battle for the release of travel expense records and we spoke to the spanish transparency ngo access info which first obtained the documents but they say they've only scratched the surface. hundred twenty requests made freedom of information access to documents requests was actually for the whole year of twenty sixteen however the commission decided unilaterally to only release information at this point for january and february twenty sixth when they felt that it was an advantage to burden and it was disproportionate to release information for the whole year now that doesn't seem to make sense given that they also have this
6:21 am
information passed on to the auditor's into the parliament so if the data is already collected and is made available to those. institutions then why can't it be made public more generally one spokesperson has defended the travel expenses but critics say sometimes it's rather difficult to see where there's value for the money. the the european commission really and unlike national governments don't own any airplanes and do not have the flexibility to therefore it's just our own plane that's why we have to charge. you know needs whenever there is no out of the disability throw that in when a commercial flight would not be viable because of the constraints of the polluted or because of security reasons often really people tell me these expensive trips and then they just come out with fairly innocuous statements at the end of the day
6:22 am
really achieve much less the company benefits from face to face meetings are so you know it's good that there is a focus on those problems in armenia and azerbaijan but really the hasn't been much progress for a long time now given they are spending taxpayers' money they ought to try and get those places as cheaply as possible within reason and if you look at for example it's a mr young because troops have arrived there are several direct flights from brussels to right every single day on a normal sehgal deadline so why couldn't they have called on those normal slice instead of booking this private jets. german journalist has found herself making the news as opposed to reporting it it's awful she claimed in an interview that german media is biased towards the government in its coverage of the refugee crisis claudio zimmerman said journalists are instructed to report in a pro-government way when it comes to the migrant crisis adding that they are compelled to cover the issue in a positive light now this revelation was made back in january twenty sixteen and
6:23 am
during an interview over the cologne sex attacks that she gave to a dutch radio station it is a topic that zimmerman has covered extensively and our sister channel r.t. deutsche spoke exclusively to the journalist in the middle of this controversy. journalist tends to support chancellor merkel refugee policy throughout the media not just at the channel i work for some journalists including me trying to teach more critical. stories but they were not approved that's why i spoke out stories did fail to wall come or support this policy are being blocked honestly everest i did not understand the situation the whole situation that occurred because of this as the channel stated there was a lot of damage in a public field i cooperated i did everything possible to minimize the damage to w.r. t.v. channel i'm still officially not fired he just don't approve my pitches my topics haven't changed yet but it suddenly turned out not trustworthy anymore
6:24 am
a report published in june this year claimed media outlets are closing their eyes to the concerns and fears of the german population with regard to the country's migration policy claudia's anyone claims there are topics journalists want to cover but are simply not allowed to i would wish to many more colleagues dare to do more critical coverage the pressure comes from to top down i know from some colleagues that there are certain topics we would like to cover but those topics were not approved because you were too critical because did don fit deferment of to program i think it's significant it would be significant for journalism in germany. wildfires and italy have told their way through thousands of hectares so far this year that's partly due to a record breaking heat wave but as politics explains there are more sinister reasons as well. as temperatures soar across southern europe wildfires have become common particularly in italy. but the sheer
6:25 am
number of forest fires has raised suspicions and police have discovered that many fires are less acts of god than acts of some very desperate men and the courses themselves are eyebrow raising in sicily fifteen volunteer policemen have been arrested for either starting or reporting fires so they could earn an extra ten euros an hour for putting them out while suspicions were raised when the number of fires went up from the usually volunteer number forty to one hundred twenty the alleged ringleader a man known as hddvd is even under house arrest as he apparently constant his practice of driving to an area and sparking up while police indeed say he is one twisted firestarter he said he wanted to set of a bomb to take the money available if the emergency vehicles needed to be repaired another scandal like the fires has also spread to rome where two hundred hectares of a nature reserve have gone up in flames and so powerfully has the reputation of
6:26 am
a former t.v. director who local media citing the investigation claim is part of a racket who started the fires to intimidate a group of transvestite prostitutes working in the area to make them pay their protection money where he was found with a flyer in one hand and a lighter in the other one could perhaps say the evidence against him is incendiary . i joining us so far here on r.t. international today your world news continues with my colleague in about half an hour. walk still of you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they're going. to do socks for the tell you that will be gossip and public but. they. tell me you are not

6:28 am
and on larry king by now you're well aware of the rising tensions and rhetoric between u.s. president donald trump and north korea is this president rome's first international trial and how is he handling it let's talk about this and more with former u.s. representative david jolly republican of florida he joins us from tampa james madison david off for defense secretary one north korea of the destruction of its people donald trump talked about fire and fury and hell long leash like never before are we going to do here is shimon august what's happened what's going on. you know and those messages conflict with what our secretary of state rex tillerson has been trying to accomplish when he talks about a peaceful negotiation suggesting we don't want regime change. we know that
6:29 am
the escalation when north korea has reached a point that no president has faced before yes they've had a nuclear program has been the subject to framework talks since the ninety's but we have never faced a north korea with a nuclear military capability of reaching the united states and that's what donald trump faces the only military solution should we end up in that situation is shock and awe where we saw like we saw in iraq which would really a blitter rate north korea and i think that would be the worst solution for the world which is why we do need to reach a peaceful solution but larry we can't overlook the fact that we also have a president that over six in ten americans don't trust who they don't find credible for decision making is like he's facing right now and that is the underlying anxiety that we face as a country we lack full confidence in our commander in chief to confront what is the three.
