u.s. backed forces bombard islamic states last stronghold in syria people are fleeing the area including the wives of beisel fighters loyal the so-called caliphate. venezuela's self-proclaimed leader says he will ask the national assembly to declare a state of emergency. for a us intervention. today the solution is intervention airlines plane with one hundred fifty seven people on board crashes just minutes after taking off from.
5:01 pm
there are no survivors. and i welcome to the weekly here in r.t. international. thanks for joining us this hour u.s. backed fighters in syria have resumed their assault against the last area held by islamic state terrorists fighting is now raising in the town of near the iraqi border the final showdown with arsenal was delayed to allow families to flee the area a spokesperson for the syrian democratic forces says the military are close to wiping out the last contingent. our troops began an offensive at six pm local time planes targeted the terrorists weapons depos there is fierce fighting on the outskirts of the camp our forces are now ready to finish what is left of i saw off of the village of baghdad has been a focal point of the democratic forces for several weeks now despite donald trump
5:02 pm
repeatedly declaring victory over i saw america's top general says the fight is far from over with more. 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. 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 booze before the guns go off 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
5:03 pm
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 i still hasn't surrendered 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 pullout would have definitely scored mr trump some valuable political points but nothing seems to be certain here especially with this
5:04 pm
but goose thorn in the side you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of isis see a resurgent you know they're going 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 well as general votel testified in congress recently and he said. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it's not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have farms we believe that farms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know edge at some future date trying to later clarify 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
5:05 pm
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. many of those who escaped the fighting in bugaboos have been put into a refugee camp there though they are facing a new threat some of the shortages of food and medicine. and looks. at how much talk yeah i didn't want to john isis i love seeking jihad
5:06 pm
for god because we are all muslims and we have verses about jihad and the one about the killing slaughtering into truth that regime would have. the right approach. the conditions are definitely dying to count the problem is nobody was expecting these kinds of numbers so it has been overwhelming and it hasn't stopped. because. of the political divide in venezuela is deepening with the rival crowds filling the streets of caracas throughout the weekend opposition leader one boyd or dressed his supporters call them foreign powers to bring down the moderate government thank you
5:07 pm
solution using to thank thank. you. germany they tried to fabricate this whole show claiming the military would join them but there is only one answer yes to loyalty and no to be true that medicine is a clown. and a criminal after a very tense week opposition supporters are back on the streets to protest against the government of nikko last month europe they called was may but one way go on monday after returning an international tour does heat up the already tense climate menace was up in two or three days in a row in a malicious power less one of the better than i'm protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity no water new food the government should step down in the world know that i am here to defend the democratic choice
5:08 pm
of our people when you voted for nicolas maduro as our president under the constitution he is the only president unlike one why dole who chose and proclaimed himself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. door who declared himself interim leader in january says he would ask the country's national assembly to declare a state of emergency this comes on the fourth day of a nationwide blackout caracas called the outage an act of sabotage by the u.s. ideas about what caused that u.s. senator marco rubio staunch advocate of removing tweeted that the cause of the power outage was a transformer explosion in germany it turns out though those no such thing in venezuela. today another transformer explosion at the german state caused another massive blackout sen marco rubio an important transformer exploded in believer and that's in part again collapse the venezuelan
5:09 pm
electric system however it was not in a dam much less german my name is again man down i am one of the journalists who publish the information. and washington insists that nicolas one zero is no longer the leader of his way or the u.s. state department went so far as to break journalists who fudge that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one guy joe as the opposition leader or the self-proclaimed president. neither is correct relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize as interim president of venezuela get this for your complaining because. you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct all that's all it's like a complete week he is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him
5:10 pm
to be president as you say. other countries. recognize him as you know president but they're all more than a hundred members of the. time to act in support of democracy and the news coverage of the legitimate leader the president is going to interpret more functional but we don't want to feed into rhetoric of the current dictator the pressure was stepped up further on the venezuelan government this week u.s. vice president mike pence announced that seventy seven officials linked to nicolas what doro would have the u.s. visa revoked washington special envoy to venezuela abrams hinted at sanctioning third parties for best supporting the venezuelan leader and the u.s. national security advisor john bolton said there would be new instructions targeting venezuela like cuba the whole region should stand against the rockets but
5:11 pm
more his more aggressive. the united states is exceptional literally that by different rules to you and me other nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't state supports any. number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the credibility of the argument you're making no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase munroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be
5:12 pm
colonized by europeans out of bounds for european roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the u.s. now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world terry quire threat assessment a strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and say no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there i do not see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here america knows better in syria half the world away it's
5:13 pm
the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us in work with our partners to expel every last iranian group and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you our sovereignty reform the liberal
5:14 pm
international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european colonisers what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn continents oh you've got to be special all right now. we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one thousand nine hundred eighty four with arbenz or the interventions that he carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s.
5:15 pm
supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vise the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. and i feel your pain and islands passenger plane has crashed killing all those onboard more on that tragedy just in a few moments time. there
5:16 pm
was no need no digital trade but in the five years ago those were kicked out because relations were more purity economy but now the religion is very very close intertwined saw i think it's ok to have a new treaty and you negotiation. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sport business i'm show business i'll see you then. i. i. welcome back to the program i mean this plane has crashed killing all one hundred
5:17 pm
fifty seven people on board it was heading from about to nairobi the victims include thirty five foreign nationals and nineteen stuff from organizations linked to the u.n. little call to discuss the tragedy with my colleague. ethiopian airlines is reporting is that the c.e.o. has arrived on the crash site and he confirms personally that there are no survivors in the majority being from kenya canada and the e.u. now this was one of ethiopian airlines regularly scheduled flights although the plane crashed only six minutes after takeoff it took emergency services two whole hours to get to the site now this is especially shocking because reports were saying that it only crashed about fifty kilometers south of the takeoff zone at the airport one witness even told the b.b.c. that the result of this delay was because the fire was so strong that people were unable to approach the plane on the crash site the office of the ethiopian prime minister already reacted to this on twitter they said that they give their
5:18 pm
condolences to the families of those who lost their lives on this plane the big question is of course the causes what happened to it do we have any kind of going to be investigation of course but but early stages of why this happened yet well that's another surprising detail hours later and we still have no details available as to what caused this crash in the first place it's one of the newest model so that's another aspect we have to bring in here it's actually called the boeing seven thirty seven max and it's a new addition to the theo be in fleet only from back in july of last year and a lot of people are drawing parallels to the plane crash that occurred last year in indonesia with lion airs model of the same plane the bone exact same plane yeah the boeing seven thirty seven. max and just to give you couple details about that it was a very similar situation the plane crashed in indonesia only several minutes after taking off and over one hundred eighty passengers were killed now boeing also
5:19 pm
reacted to that and to this situation back then last year boeing issued a warning year later about this model of aircraft saying that the seven thirty seven max might have a tendency to do a nosedive against the will of the pilot of the plane and during airplanes actually also responded on twitter to this specific crash saying that the company is aware of the accident and they're closely monitoring the situation. over six thousand activists gathered in central moscow on sunday demanding the protection of internet freedoms as off the lawmakers gave their initial approval to a bill granting the authorities greater control over which sites are accessible of course was the scene. we came to report on this rally here and central moscow people who gathered to the front of the freedom of the internet and russia but ironically he wasn't allowed to. the organizers of this event told us that we
5:20 pm
belong to the media that they do not support so this is the only way i can report on what's happening back there by standing here i can only tell you that you see cons of people in many mostly young people we saw here. that flocks they were holding different slogans all damning the rest of the bill that was proposed by russian officials now the event organized by a group of activists was earlier approved by moscow city hall. thousands of members of the french algerian community have rallied against the president of algeria reelection bid it's the second weekend in a row of such them instructions other french cities saw since he suffered a stroke in twenty thirteen sunday's protests came as good if you could plane left geneva where he was receiving hospital treatment. south africa's racism drive has hit a hurdle after incendiary remarks from an m.p.
5:21 pm
who said true freedom will only come when the white population is subservient to the black i don't want blacks to work for whites i want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them how to carry babies on their back they must feel what our parents have been feeling we're not calling for white people to be killed but for white people freedom fighters a far left party which is currently the third largest political force in south africa over the years. as third national debate with his views on race and class he's twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against white people was expelled from the governing a.n.c. party in two thousand and twelve for sowing division within the organization now the apartheid policy in south africa ended more than two decades ago now the country those still struggling with division white people make up nine percent of south africa's population but only more than seventy percent of private farmland
5:22 pm
efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation have already been launched by the government but both the problem and efforts to solve it are causing animosity across the board. the general ideology of julius malema wherein he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't wonder that one to obliterate one to completely this system which is constructed to do off white people on top and uplifting and exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities as businesses to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean a good country thirty five thousand white families own eighty percent of the land
5:23 pm
we don't own as i speak to you as a black person in south africa i over nothing i am in fact i think a tenant white people always think everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. thinking it is true but i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says we must take the land even these politicians controlled by money who has money south africa why it's when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true why people are somehow denial lists of old crimes of the old government is incorrect. as for the sour from the to myself thing to not international see you in thirty

influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. countries are very reluctant to are back. the fact that is that is why i'm like formally and also to admit that they were perhaps wrong and tad ok condemning them or siding against and so with glee in the early stages of the war and so their title is i mean to undermine the reconstruction process by the prolongation of safeguards i think that western countries would want a situation where this is serious we can start it but in case you know ways in which he started by a third power not russia and iran not by the west and by the g.c.c. or my child.
