this in a minute sort of passed between the time i was asked to come on the show i walked about a mile through places in new york where there are already protests they do not look very spontaneous to me they have printed flags printed placards you know i think people on both sides are spoiling for a fight here and we ought to think very carefully about what actually happened find out who may be guilty of what offenses best to get them and punish them accordingly before we leap to a conclusion as to what may have happened. the violence in virginia many continue to blame it on deep divisions within american society and increasingly polarized politics. by spitta by you and i do we stand divided people but i'm gutted that i try to respect the people who planted. the democratic leader.

reunited with their relatives back home relatives who desperately love them or i guess the. from dagestan russia. day pass this week without a fresh exchange of threats between the united states and north korea. they will be met. by you're. ready. to state that. maybe it wasn't so. i and all this rhetoric between the two leaders has led to some colorful comparisons as caleb maupin explains. when donald trump threaten north korea with fire and fury everyone online apparently had the same thought game
5:12 pm
of thrones. north korea. best not to hear what threats to the united states. they will be met with five years as. 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 trumped was it kim jong un or was it game of thrones the days are gone forever when our enemies could blackmail us came with their own game of thrones. game of thrones out.
5:13 pm
donald trump game of thrones it's kim jong un ok all right. i tried you know as many people as i can you never know which one you'll need. non-neutral also donald trump donald trump donald trump came through and you're correct that is game of yes all right our military will be given the resources that its brave warriors richly deserved. to. control them came of their own can join them. down a trail right that's donald trump i will not allow the mistakes of the recent decades to define the course of our future. came through and donald trump donald trump i'm just going to go with donald trump again that's correct and you're right you're right we can keep any cesspool of evils in the earth. including them within our striking range game of their own. game with their own spin. on.
5:14 pm
your enemies steals and murders your children. kim jong un donald trump to be. able to. control the game of thrones. the great. confrontation between the two military powers has of course provoked a lot of international reaction while russia says that the risks of war are high china warned trump against playing with fire over north korea some u.s. allies have also stressed they're not supporting the escalation for example germany says that a harsh exchange of words isn't the correct response or the u.k. insists that the situation should only be dealt with through the u.n. some analysts that we've spoken to believe both the u.s. and north korea should change their policy. 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
5:15 pm
i've never seen the 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 i think the north koreans have put forth look we will stop our missile tests if you stop your war games we've been doing war games on that peninsula for fifty or sixty years from now so what good does it to walk away from that entry point into negotiations other than the fact that the united states simply does not want to really enter into negotiations is not one we only want negotiations where the negotiating entry point is the north korean surrender syrian pro-government forces a celebrating the liberation of
5:16 pm
a key town in the country's east who explain after the break. seemed wrong. just. to shape
5:17 pm
our. engagement. find themselves worlds apart. to look for common ground. syrian government forces and their allies have liberated the town of also in the east of the country from islamic state it fell into the hands of jihadists in may two thousand and fifteen should the same bottle when i still captured palmira for the first time russia's defense minister says the liberation of also paves the way to advance on to the strategic city of dare resort. we're going to do things today that everyone is ready to fight and today there was just. a resume which i would.
5:18 pm
have been courageously defending it for years now food medicine. to the liberation of the city would be a point in the defeat of. all these video news agency ruptly film they say exclusive footage from inside which was the last islamic state stronghold in the homes region is just fifty kilometers away from the border with dead as a province which is still mostly on the eisel control trying to explain the significance of the events. syrian war geography the south east as where the color coded key is least complicated government controlled red vs eisel held the black divided by won't long doesn't front line and it's just shifted to the right of a town called no. there's plenty to celebrate for these for with food and their commanders saving. edges them
5:19 pm
closer to their ultimate goal and this part of syria dare as zoar where one to two hundred thousand people are completely surrounded by islamic state and a few more months the siege will have been ongoing for three years. more on that ballet getting to the neighbors as isis terrorists raided our house my thirteen year old cousin was staying with us i hid her in a water tank so that the terrorists didn't take her as a slave. it was obvious that is not good is the situation in there is or is catastrophic terrorist from iraq execute civilians in the streets and leave bodies lying there for up to five days i secretly drove my sons out of the city otherwise
5:20 pm
isis militants would recruit them by force inject psychotropic substances and gives them suicide bombers. civilians don't have access to regular good to commodities to services planes aren't always able to reach that or iraqi power through the equipment or the food which is needed for the many civilians in trapped inside the city and the soldiers who are fighting on the front lines in strategic terms is the last stop on the way to dare as province taking control of this province will mean why being out i sold impromptu or production no more cash for the terrorists from al so the government troops can also push to the north and if they can we night with fellow soldiers and the rock a province isis forces will end up cattle in the geographical heart of syria
5:21 pm
certainly it's definitely the beginning of the absolute end of isis in syria where there are definitely two potentiality of a subcommittee is only fifty kilometers away from that is over retaking that particular city is of vital importance to the reopening of the route and the road to that is or now the other option is to actually link up with the forces coming in from the northwest now that would create a huge pocket of remaining i think a force that is i think the army will potentially link up with what's left of the horses and at the same time push for their vote in the quickest form a new way possible we've seen the syrian army gaining ground and then relinquishing some tough lessons in war geography have been learned those trapped in the arizona can breathe momentarily with relief but there's still a long way to go. a group in the united kingdom calling itself
