8:01 pm
after taking off from. a broadcasting live from our studios in moscow this is our chief international i'm sean thomas certainly glad to have you with us. all right now u.s. backed fighters in syria have resumed very assault against the last area held by islamic state terrorists fighting is now raging in near the iraqi border the final showdown with eisele was delayed to allow families to flee the area a spokesperson for the kurdish led syrian democratic forces says the battle is almost over. the truth is dead there is fierce fighting on the outskirts of the camp forces and i'm ready to finish what is left of eisel off or the village of bugaboos has been a focal point of the syrian democratic forces for several weeks now despite donald
8:02 pm
trump repeatedly declaring victory over eisel america's top general says otherwise we have to try to go comment. 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 she 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
8:03 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 eisel hasn't surrendered he's confident it's not been defeated instead the terrorists 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 one against isis now we've one point 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 you see a resurgence of isis see a resurgent you know they're going out will come back if we have to anyway whatever
8:04 pm
happens next depends on what ignites and well as general photo testified in time very recently 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 regular soldiers perhaps special forces you see advisers diplomats there there is 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 i says
8:05 pm
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 they are facing new threats with shortages of food and medicine. and let's. talk i didn't want to john isis i love seeking jihad for god because we are all muslims and we have verses about jihad in the comics but at the spirit of the regime it had the right approach. the conditionals i definitely diet into account the problem is nobody was expecting
8:06 pm
these kinds of numbers so it has been overwhelming and it hasn't stopped. because. the political divide in venezuela is deepening with rival crowds have filling the streets of caracas throughout the weekend to opposition leader addressed his supporters calling on foreign powers to bring down of the material government. if you say the solution is intervention thank you. germany retreated from record this whole show claiming the military would join the
8:07 pm
there is only one answer yes to loyalty to be true and not made a stand. alone. in 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 why don't monday after rejoining an international tour don't heat up the already tense climate menace was up and you are three days in a row in a massive blackout the biggest wind of penicillin history at the moment the whole capital is powerless but at the foot of the town i'm protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity you know water new food the government should step down if you look at all but i am here to defend the democratic choice 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. won by joe who declared himself interim
8:08 pm
leader in january says he will ask the country's national assembly to declare a state of emergency this comes on the fourth day of a nationwide blackout caracas that calls the outage an act of sabotage by the u.s. but the opposition says the material government is to blame some though had of removing the dural tweeted that the cause of the power outage was a transformer explode. today another transformer explosion at the german state caused another massive blackout senator marco rubio an important transformer exploded in believer and that in parts again collapse the venezuelan electric system however it was not in a dam much less german my name is again man dum i'm one of the journalists who publish the information. washington insists that nicolas maduro is no longer the leader of venezuela the u.s. state department went so far as to berate journalists who fail to accept that view
8:09 pm
we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one quite go as the opposition leader or the self-proclaimed president neither is corrects 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 and get this straight you're complaining because ease our lives are part of the but it's harder when you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct all that's all it's like a complaint to me and it seems pretty weak he's the easy interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president as you say fifty other countries. recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than
8:10 pm
a hundred ninety members of the united nations so they're fifty countries is not even close to half. the time to act and to them a leader the president is going to inter is more function is to look we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator. the trouble ministration introduced new measures against venezuela this week blacklisting officials and threatening sanctions against countries that support nicolas maduro or his but i ghazi have comments now on the sanctions and how they fit into washington's broader policy objectives. the united states is exceptional literally balland by different rules to you and me of the 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
8:11 pm
know the state supports any number of dictators who are only human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the the credibility of the argument or make no i don't think it does make it separate and i think work in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says new nation in the americas maybe call on everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us 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 and a zoo ella and
8:12 pm
a bill that legitimizes us meddling there terry quire threat assessment a strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pagi because it's too friendly with russia and saying no not that then he asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't 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 and there a knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us in work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of
8:13 pm
iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out 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 suv of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what his but nine policy protecting the weak from european
8:14 pm
colonisers what that has been turned into a license. to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn the continents oh you've got to be special all right 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 nine hundred fifty four with arden's or the interventions that it carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the fight the moment on cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like
8:15 pm
bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron clothes on board more on that tragedy after breakthrough international. law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race based on scary dramatic develop the only
8:16 pm
really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very ok to kill. you sit. in. this is the weekly on our to international now an ethiopian airlines plane has crashed killing all one hundred fifty seven people on board it was heading. to nairobi the victims include thirty five foreign nationals and one thousand staff from organizations linked to the united nations artie's done a quarter earlier discussed the tragedy with my colleague you know. ethiopian airlines is reporting is that the c.e.o.
8:17 pm
has arrived on the crash site and he confirms personally that there are no survivors 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 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
8:18 pm
as to what caused this crash in the first place it's well it's one of the newest model so that's another us. 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 boeing sexy and yeah the boeing seven thirty seven max and just to give you a 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 reacted to that and to this situation back event 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 boeing airplanes actually
8:19 pm
also responded on twitter to this specific crash saying that the company is aware of the accident and they're closely monitoring the situation. now for something completely different a dolled up adolf hitler wearing lipstick and long eyelashes has been spotted in madrid and barcelona on the side of a bus the furer mobility is part of a campaign by ultra conservative catholics who are unhappy about spanish laws on gender violence which they claim discriminate against men the bus tour and several other spanish cities in the run up to the international women's day on friday the campaign was organized under the hashtag stop feminazi which is how the organizers refer to certain types of feminists its spokesman explained why. the gender laws are really very. very very bad laws because they discriminate men from women in the penalty of the pinnacle to discriminate also or in the
8:20 pm
presence of innocence it's breaking principle of equality that this in our constitution what we are asking is for already done this what supposedly feminists are asking for but in fact are not they're not asking for equality but they are asking for a super innocence and a not a time way. i have a campaign is seeking to repeal a two thousand and four law on gender violence under which special courts and rehabilitation centers were created to protect women at risk people on twitter have bitten back coming up with a few of their own alternative bus slogans accusing the campaign of being very behind the times body confidence advocate joy and being but alice thinks the hip lower bus fails to get its point across. has me think it's quite hard to take a group an organization seriously when they use that has inflicted so much pain or
8:21 pm
many people so it's quite hard to just read the speech understand what i'm going to say she's trying to pick and i don't think he's the right present for the basic this campaign specially what they're trying to do i don't need really that the current do you think is a bit of an insult to women especially because of what he was about and what he thought about women in particular and just aren't trying to do and i do agree that something needs to be done but again senate violence against. men and women domestic violence is many when it happened both ways so maybe it's not the right present again do you think it might be insulting to men directly. south africa's anti-racism drive has had a hurdle after incendiary remarks from an m.p. 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
8:22 pm
we're not calling for white people to be killed but for white people to be our domestic workers. julius malema is the leader of the economic freedom fighters a far left party which is currently the third largest political force in south africa over the years has stirred a national debate with his views on race and class he has twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against white people and he was expelled from the governing a.n.c. party in two thousand and twelve for selling division within the organization. and the apartheid policy in south africa and did more than two decades ago but the country is still struggling with division white people make up nine percent of south africa's population but own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation has already been launched by the government but both the problem and efforts to solve it are causing animosity across the board. general ideology of julius malema
8:23 pm
in 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 one that want to obliterate want to end completely this system which is construct them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes 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 i mean a good country thirty five thousand white families only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i over nothing i am in fact i think a tenant white people only everything the government is
8:24 pm
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 what 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 deny a list of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect. below first movement took to the streets of paris again on saturday in its continuing stand against the french government. the iraqi. was.
