5:07 am
the regime's latest threat of a missile strike near u.s. territory in the asia region the president send the following warning to kim jong un. he utters water threat or if he does anything with respect to qualcomm or any place else that's it american territory or an american ally he will truly regret it and he will regret it yes trump tweeted the u.s. army is locked and loaded against the secretive east asian state it's the latest in a long line of rhetoric from the american leader. north korea this not make it even worse threats to the united states. they will be met with fire fury. like the world has never see the people that would question that statement was it too maybe it wasn't tough enough that if there is a state that has nothing to do with there that's a statement and while it's still
5:08 am
a war of words for now western media report the pentagon has plans for a preemptive strike on north korea's nuclear facilities and that's raising fears across the border in seoul. reports. so what if mr trump goes forward and all these roughly two dozen north korean missile launch sites testing grounds and other facilities go boom there is no way kim jong un won't take revenge what are they going to aim at. the north korea shover to you and dignity army will launch the merciless own troop decision strikes from the ground. under water so they'd better stop being reckless and even without the stuff trump wants to wipe out they've got quite the arsenal toy unleashed hell over the thirty eighth parallel for decades north korea has been prepping artillery for that very moment and now what they've got loaded and ready to fire are twelve thousand pieces of two barks hillary and twenty three hundred units of multiple launch rocket artillery.
5:09 am
the direction southward is clear where precisely will kim point across here here are two words for you to learn counterforce and how to value targeting south korean and possibly even u.s. military facilities near the demilitarized zone versus an attack to destroy economically critical infrastructure and to cause immense civilian casualties i mean it when i say immense look at the range of north korean artillery beyond the border millions of people live there more than half of south korea's population so with roughly ten million residents and with almost three million and su one over one million all these cities are in that zone and some estimates say that forty eight hours of artillery rage may kill over one hundred thousand in and
5:10 am
around so all but what kind of specific north korean threat have we been mostly hearing about from the folks on t.v. the dramatic escalation. in tensions with north korea overnight the regime divides defy president trump with a new threat against the u.s. territory of guam a chilling new warning comes as the rogue nation threatens to strike guam home to thousands of u.s. service members this is a regime that's trying to not only establish its power but demonstrate its power everyone splaying the talent kim's missile range game though even if it is capable of reaching the u.s. island in the pacific how realistic is the threat of a successful launch a launch that would dog america's. worst. the. if
5:11 am
you are us citizen on the coast of no doubt you're still pretty stressed but hey say that to south koreans from somewhere near seoul they'll be the first to get zapped if mr trump pulls the trigger on the host of a going underground. discusses the u.s. north korea escalations with award winning journalist and filmmaker john pilger the full interview will be throughout the day here on this channel but it's a short clip. trump is a bit of a wimp compared with obama a bomber ended. having put american interests seven wars including the longest war in its in its history having increased the development of nuclear. warheads more than any president since the cold war obama's record was on the soup a whole trampas has a long way to catch up with he's pretty to say that's what i really should stop
5:12 am
simply looking at trump the man but trump as a kind of symptom and i mentioned. a character a true almost a cartoon version of a system a system. that was produced people that have almost brought us to the edge of nuclear war. and all the talk of armageddon suddenly got business brains buzzing it seems that's clearly cash to be made from a crisis as us american reports. it's back the prospect of nuclear armageddon and with it and media with panic about how to survive the fallout people begin weighing their disaster plans a nuclear warhead that could land in hawaii in twenty minutes fissionable information on radiation from a potential nuclear blast this is an accidental tried to the united states google searches for how to survive a nuclear attack have gone through the roof within the past few days beating old
5:13 am
classics like how to get rich and how to be happy no surprise then that nuclear holocaust survival guides are appearing all over the place garnering tens of thousands of views nobody ever wants to experience the devastation the schools to buy nuclear weapons please get prepared while you still can a great still means coming on time is quickly running out even old guidelines are getting a new lease of life like the rather ominous affair posted in two thousand and fourteen by a local health care agency. i know you can. teach me. that being outside. your explosion. is the worst place thinking. it best to dark for you here's a cheery little ditty advising people to stay indoors and watch the news only if the cloud is in the sky. but you've got to get this out the door is going to be
5:14 am
too serious or even. here it is just. to stay tuned to them. but if you don't have faith their house or main standing you could always invest in a bunker many factors say business is booming with giant increase sales especially in the last three days this tremendous fire here it probably is century after. the storm it is also the business of wall so the tensions are very high. people are taking precautions they're interested in shelters well bunkers like these might not actually save you from a nuclear holocaust but they might just protect you from all the media hype leading up to one. on our team washington d.c. the news continues in just a moment. oh there are already.
5:15 am
this transition to batteries and this new energy paradigm is really remarkable is happening quite rapidly. if this network economics that transforming the global economy and central banks are fading. fading electricity and batteries battery technologies. so it's really. defining transition to a new
5:16 am
a new world in china is business and. at least sixteen civilians have died in a u.s. strike in eastern afghanistan that is according to local officials the u.s. military's acknowledged the bombing raid in the province but claims militants were killed afghan officials disagree with this report from an eyewitness of the strike . my father and my mother were both killed. eleven people being transported in the vehicle three women five children two men were killed and one of the women was wounded her legs were blown off the bombing was carried out by warplanes i saw the place where the airstrike hit. my two brothers my mother and my sister were killed. the latest claims about civilian
5:17 am
deaths come amid increasing talk of a change of tact by the u.s. in afghanistan more now with more. according to the afghan government these civilians were killed in eastern afghanistan the u.s. government says that that is not accurate it says that only militants were killed we reached out specifically to the pentagon to get a clarification and for more information about the situation we did not receive an answer now this comes as donald trump is talking about reworking u.s. strategy in afghanistan we just heard him speak on it and he says his intention is to make it quote a whole lot less messy it's a very big decision for the took over a mess. we're going to. make it a lot less messy but that has been a place seventeen years old there's horrors i read in one of your code and frankly . it's going to be a decision that's for the diversion of now at this point roughly eight thousand four hundred u.s.
5:18 am
troops are in afghanistan they're joined by roughly five thousand nato forces that are there alongside them from various nato countries the united states has been in afghanistan for over sixteen years there's been a series of incidents in which civilians have been killed and increasingly in u.s. airstrikes we've also seen afghan security forces being killed much controversy surrounding u.s. activities in the country but as the u.s. intervention in the country continues there have been calls from the military for an expansion of the u.s. military presence in afghanistan now one proposal is being put forward on afghanistan and it's coming from erik prince now erik prince is the founder of a private security firm a military contractor formerly known as blackwater this quite controversial he's proposing that the usa privatized its war in afghanistan there would be contracted people professionals former special special operations veterans that have experience in that theater to go do that work would it be profiting from the war. well we're not there no but in even the again that solves that solution that's
5:19 am
that's capitalism that's that's what it's about now the expanded use of. terry contractors in afghanistan and other parts of the world raises questions of accountability when such forces violate international law or engage in activities that are questionable but this is just one of the many questions that are raging as the sixteen year intervention by the united states and afghanistan continues. and i we spoke to depends on list ivan eland he believes a change in approach will come sooner rather than later. the u.s. has killed civilians and they usually say they are killing militants because they think that's the standard line i think the real issue is whether the united states should pull out of there and that's what's being decided in washington i think president trump is less enthusiastic about leaving u.s. troops there were increasing u.s. troops then the military is that the united states even if they're losing conflicts
5:20 am
they want to keep their finger in the dike hoping for turnaround if they couldn't win with one hundred thousand troops u.s. troops in there it's very difficult to train afghan military that's corrupt and. very ineffective into a fighting force they've been trying to do that for you know sixteen years and has works. a german. initiative designed to appeal to all in the community is facing a backlash for using top names such as my met gulch on members of the talkers community in the city of dues book where the campaign is taking place complain they're being singled out. i think it's a great campaign it will be nice to find your own name and it supports people to predict garbage in garbage cans and not leave it on the street. it's going to
5:21 am
really get this message through to encourage people in cleaning up after themselves and not to throw on the street on the ground. but one local politician one member of the talkers community defending the b. initiative saying it's not against us yeah i did he also didn't believe it was an act of exclusion or an act of discrimination but we also spoke to a member of the alternative for germany party he told us our lack of integration could be to blame for the backlash. this whole issue is just
5:22 am
a symptom of failed integration if you feel that. that. race is discriminated against you easily take offense luckily the german disposal company who started this initiative brushed off all complaints and carried on business as usual it was just a very very harmless compay and i should say these are things that apply to all the people who live in that area it has nothing to do with racism as a tool then again if you want to be offended you will always find something to be offended. seventeen men and one woman belonging to a child sex network have been convicted of abuse in the u.k. it's after years of committing child rape and trafficking the group lured underage girls with drugs and alcohol all but one of the convicted gang members were of
5:23 am
asian origin the fact that they targeted mainly white british girls us or the former head of the crown prosecution service brad did a profoundly racist crime and we put the whole issue up for debate on a mass scale and it may not be every single case but on the my scale these men are muslim and the thing that when people are afraid of say it isn't that people are afraid to say the word agent they're afraid of saying the word morsi between eighty and ninety percent of child sex exploitation perpetrators are white non muslims i'm not saying you know i also absolutely i also know you're not you are someone in your view that you know muslims should be held to some kind of superior moral standard because i happen to be a muslim and even one muslim doing something reprehensible is one too many for me but i think. i would be actually. but focusing disproportionately on i don't these but when muslims do it is doing nothing but
5:24 am
allowing the this deep problem which with deep roots throughout the establishment to perpetrate further and to claim that it's some kind of. gang just merely because i really agree with if i can interject just for a minute your right when you say that eighty percent of crimes committed there are paid a failure rate white people this is still a majority of white country but when you look that muslims are according to statistics five percent of the population and then that the statistics of how many are carrying out these these heinous acts against but only warrant girlz there is the racism the racism is towards the white girls asian people and muslim people are not excessively outside of statistical significance disproportionately represented when you look at the country as a whole now in places where there's where there's a lot of asians slash muslims i agree there is a lot of likewise people who are from this background are committing certain crimes
5:25 am
and we have to address that but trying to forge a mystical link between islam all the brownness all muslim s. and these types of crimes is only diverting attention away from where it needs to go to actually to actually. see this all where are the majority. you can't solve this with science first of all are and i am not a scientist so blinded me with science is pointless anyway i come at this from somebody who is a survivor of gang rape i know what right does to a person and supporter i give these girls a gone through being targeted by muslim men who have passed on from one cause brothers cousins that unfortunately is a silent state they face then it does not mean that all muslims do it it does not mean that the most it community justified but it does mean it is happening and therein lies the importance to distinguish between
5:26 am
a stereotype based on one person's opinion and one person's. experience however tragic and sad it may be and statistical significance if we don't actually look to the facts as they are when for the actually referred to experts don't actually refer to people who can actually credibly fix this problem they will just be toast chasing our tails and people calling each other racist or islamists or radical of this or that. thanks for sharing yourself today with us here we're all t. international we're back with more of your world news and about offer no.
5:27 am
one else seems wrong. well we just don't all. get to shape our. culture. and in. the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
5:28 am
i am max kaiser this is the kaiser report oh oh man it feels good to be in crypt. hitting new all time ha ha. you know i dream of a parallel universe and in that universe is jim records and he's crying. this is due is the let's check in with stacy and see what's on a person leave as it were. well up my sleeve we have a lot of geopolitics and jim rickards has been right regarding geopolitics may be wrong regarding crypto currency but you know on there up and down ride the global geopolitics space is also as volatile as the cryptocurrency space but before we go on speaking of crypto i do want to say we have to say that we are on steam it dot
5:29 am
com as well as kaiser report i'm supposed to say something about a squirrel and some knots i'm not sure what that's about but i'm supposed to do that just so you know we are there every squirrel has not they like to bury them now and so our first headline going back to geo politics and economics there are two inextricably linked in junction oral have bigger nuts and others for yes those are the ones i like the acorn so male of the species so going back to the headline geopolitics economics much of it is driven by the quest for energy whether it was coal or whale oil or oil of course one of the most volatile regions in the world some people will say oh those middle eastern people they just don't know how to run themselves they're backwards culturally or it could be to do with the oil that they're sitting on top of which makes it difficult for them to develop.
