12:11 am
question for me is while isis was in control the attacks were fairly local. but now i ask myself that these networks are striving to the couple on their own and whether they'll become more widespread and marker. the fruit seller across from the bar. in brussels what's going on he knew a hell of a lot more that was going on with the police but no one seems to be. remember standing what is going on in these networks and there are other examples as well manchester bombing survivor chris pauley also managed to escape death again. and for another survivor moment the boss a loner attack was so rushed with terror and perhaps it's no surprise if you look at how often attacks rock europe these days experts now say that terrorism is

12:17 am
thing that's owned by slave owners. you know this should be there's a difference between honoring history and recognizing that we shouldn't repeat it. racial tensions in the u.s. have been stalked after donald trump appeared to back down from singling out the role of white supremacists and less of a scrolls than a virgin a rally similar to the ones in charlottesville took place in boston on saturday thousands of counter protest against a planned rally for free speech with minor clashes between the demonstrators and police more than thirty people were arrested also this week hundreds protested against trump outside his residence and york and also in washington d.c.

the position has been launched on the white house website calling for an t. fund to be declared a terrorist certainly zation over one hundred thousand people have already signed and just three days now the white house has to issue a response and has been looking at how america's political debate is increasingly about labeling divided groups a warning his report contains scenes of violence one of the chants most frequently used at the protests is no trial no k.k.k. no fascist usa especially trumpeters supporters are being tarred with the same rush as white supremacists like i am i think the below that i was like i was there was a callous suspect in the whole. with that charlottesville car ramming was in itself a member of the far right but the mayor of this city was very quick to put his
12:19 am
blame on the white house and president trump and he wasn't alone he should look in the mirror and he made a choice in his presidential campaign the folks around with him to you know to go right to the gutter to play on our worst prejudices and i think you are seeing a direct line from what happened here this weekend to those choices trump has made it clear with bannan gorka in the white house and the klan in the streets it is now the white supremacists house. the incitement of hatred to that got us here is as real and condemn the bill as the white supremacists and i was tweets the democratic response to the car ramming mirrors the way republicans responded to the shooting at the congressional baseball practice they blame democrats for stoking up the atmosphere when reality attack was carried out by a was a republican a guy you had an increasing intensity of hostility on the left because intensity has been building. i think since election night hyperball the vitriol from the left
12:20 am
has spurred threats and now action without historical parallel events like today are exactly why we took issue with and why elites glorifying the assassination of a president now most americans liberal conservative or otherwise are not violent however it seems like the leaders of the two major political parties try to make the other half of the electorate look like they are and that seems to be mobilizing people in both camps if you want to start something. and demonize me and i don't your mouth. was. thank you. thank you that is. that. was the united states has created a political system in
12:21 am
a way to demonizing one side means supporting the other side for many voters those who haven't really learned that much about their party's yet the solution to this is to reduce some of these impediments to we need a system in which political parties have to fight for their own ideas they have to show why what they believe is a good wife right watch an excellent idea. and not just focus on demonizing the other side so no matter what your political outlook is the best strategy seems to be the same generalizing. it will pop and r. to your. north korea has threatened to strike on war and washington of the risk of uncontrollable nuclear war of planned ten day military drills between south korea and the us i had the annual war game simulating military conflict with an isolated country killing young says that their drills are a provocation while the u.s.

maintains their stance of the nature this year some seventeen and a half thousand panag on troops are expected to take part. emeritus professor at king's college templates in the u.k. says there will be retaliation if killing in tax american soldiers this very dangerous situation arose. which is happened in the past when north korea has actually. has always been the. sort of real. time. to many in the forces i mean there would be retaliation i believe you should ever think to the challenge to use nuclear. weapons as a threat because it is possible to use. have been used before and they all use results or absolutely important. i don't think north korea
12:23 am
wants to risk a nuclear war i mean you have to be crazy to do so. she. said how us foreign policy sometimes goes against the wishes of the international community when it comes to foreign policy it seems that trump is trying to twist the knife in. some of the most balto international issues. there's fire and fury for north korea while the international community is calling for deescalation in the region trying to spouting some of the most aggressive rhetoric that's been heard and done. and this man will not get away with what he's doing believe they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see the kind of attitude will see the escalation rest breaks suddenly doesn't solve the problem the solution to this crisis must be political the potential consequences of
12:24 am
military action. to even contemplate. the two thousand and fifteen iranian nuclear deal and a group that took years to reach and one that was hailed as a landmark diplomatic treatment this is a historic day. in response to washington's threats of more sanctions to promise said that they could pull out of that deal altogether but america's u.n. ambassador doesn't appear all that concerned iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage the nuclear deal must not become too big to fail. and then there is venezuela a country divided after months of violent protests and the run up to a key election.
12:25 am
help bring an end to that trumps in just meeting fire with fire apparently the white house wants to kill a divided society and political scene with more violence we have troops over the world in places that are very very far away venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering and dying we have many options for venezuela including a possible military option if necessary. whatever happened to trump's promises of making the world a less nasty place to live i would love to be able to get along with everybody right now the world is a mess but i think by the time we finish i think it's going to be a lot better place to live for now it seems the president has zero in time chance of making friends with everyone. r.t. washington d.c. . the american civil liberties union hailed to his story factory after a case involving the cia's torture program was. saying it was filed against two
