the bomb a speech in washington's plans to help iraq is one of the features of today's breaking the set you can watch the full show a little later today but just for now is a quick preview. because he spoke mostly in a vague military jargon you had to listen closely to understand the underlying u.s. response to isis is growing influence while obama insisted no troops would be sent to actually engage in combat he didn't consider the fact that so-called military advisors were the original precursors to the us invasion of vietnam not to mention that two hundred seventy five troops have already been sent to quote secure american interests in the country but probably the most interesting part about obama's speech was his claim that iraq is a sovereign nation that has the right to choose its own leaders seriously when did iraq become a sovereign nation the minute the us and realize that it's a war in the country result in the creation of yet another failed state because see no western powers have done nothing but violate iraq's autonomy by dismantling its

world isis belongs to a faction of sunni islamic committed to radical fundamentalist convictions that they seek to impose on other muslims their advances have long stopped being just iraq's problem these darker green spots are where the population is predominantly shia you can see iran is the main shiite power in the region syria is largely sunni but the government of bashar assad is alawite which is a branch of shiite islam isis being an extremist sunni forces managed to advance this far both in syria and iraq because of the support of sunni communities on their way iran wants to help iraq's shia government repel the onslaught of isis and initiative which washington seemingly supports but targeting sunni areas which i says controls could create a backlash with other sunni nations getting involved like saudi arabia which shows already warned against foreign intervention there's not going to be
3:06 am
a simple military solution to this issue isis is also controlling parts of syria fighting against the government to rostock these problems are intertwined in a really demonic way u.s. politicians have tried to present the conflict in syria as being between those who want democracy and those who don't need the spices in walking is that they're showing how complicated the dynamics in the region really are. r.t. washington d.c. . or the could see. living in northeast iraq are also fighting on their own battlefront after isis launched its advance could ish forces were able to push the islamists out of the city of kirkuk taking control of a vital oil center that is defense consulted more in a row believes kurds have been given a chance to create their own independent state of the country has been broken away as it is except it's not officially broken where they've wanted to separate the oil

rich or kurdish region in the north away from the main iraq it's been set up from the beginning from the ninety's the americans gave them the possibility of a semi autonomous region now all it is is their been running the kurds have been running their own kurdish region since the ninety's. and now all they're going to do is break away from iraq once and for all and declare independence the isis scroope fighting in both iraq and syria is estimated to have around ten thousand soldiers at its disposal with volunteers coming from all across the globe and reports indicate there are three thousand foreigners in their ranks and also according to the u.k. foreign minister around four hundred of those are british citizens now it says the group itself is enjoying wide support online from people right across the globe including the west as r.t. sara first now reports. from the front lines in iraq and syria and another

battle is being fought in the u.k. this week banned isis making it an offense to be a member of the group but the organization is still enjoying a wave of online european support dubbed by some of the isis fanboys well i've been speaking to some of the isis supporters and i vs one station media why is supporting isis despite the reported killings and he's applied for me that he. has come the closest yet to establishing an islamic caliphate why do you think isis holds such appeal for some of the people back home i think. if you could to use this word in its. terrorism so he plays is more of a threat the one sort of actually going to travel they're going to come back all the people here in the u.k. right now he won't ever travel but i'm going with. quite right the two

constituencies important for. those who have a sense of nine eleven so in a way that constituency has always been that it's possible that they'll be more encouraged by. what's happening in syria and become more active not as a direct result of this film on the sort of wave of islam isolation of the world and then you've got the people who actually come back and who can spread who can become active or recruit first and that's a really dangerous thing that's a meeting is the national security council this week prime minister david cameron said the government was doing all it could stream to address the threat posed by foreign fighters including interviewing individuals in u.k. folders canceling all with touring u.k. passports and introducing new measures to prosecute days he planned to train. terrorism of the rule. of four should be united states and its allies have known
3:10 am
about isis and their activities and the danger they pose for a few years why haven't you stop these groups from pretty average why do you allow these groups to get stronger and stronger why do you allow certain countries to support them financially why do you allow foreign partners to get into the last estimate that the number of british fighters abroad at four hundred and growing professor griffin tells r.t. the government now desperately needs to strengthen its response to some of the most precious people coming by people who are pretty disillusioned by what's happened. and who can produce a counter narrative of people. seemed killing an explosion does to a baby and comes back intent on stopping it. that other side of the story could be more crucial than ever much of the british population watches in horror the grisly images of some of the killings taking place in iraq at the hands
3:11 am
of isis fighters but to its european supporters i say this is not the enemy the west is. so i see reporting from london. i do rest assured we will be keeping our fingers bright on the pulse of events in iraq both on screen here and online you can log on to our website r.t. dot com for the very latest updates on that story along with expert opinion and analysis. moving on to eastern ukraine where four people who've been killed during the latest military offensive in the city of slavyansk a thirty year old woman died when a mortar shell hit her backyard her five year old son was taken to hospital with multiple head wounds and we have just received information that he has died of those injuries and the shelling continues despite president poroshenko has promised cease fire under his new peace plan what exactly the fourteen point proposal to end

3:18 am
a strong following and a clear message as only we are here present we are jews noble and cruel we are well trained well equipped we're not afraid and we should be more afraid of us than we are of them the jewish defense league claims its goal is to protect the jewish community from hatred and anti-semitism but some jews accuse it of doing the very same thing it's meant to be fighting against and these people say the organization is not protecting anyone but it's liking those who don't share the same views and opinions jonathan mall adopted claims he felt the rights of the league when he started researching them in paris i exposed to with my friends some zionist felony crazy for doing this job in september two thousand and twelve my car of been bombed by a. bomb i received death threats and a couple months ago i went to cover a protest against anti-semitism they reconnects me and they were like fifteen people jumping on me break a my camera and. beating me up on the ground what is being done to prevent this
3:19 am
from happening again what is the police doing at one point intervened and took me out of the protest and i told them there were many of them on the place so i told them why don't you oh if we do anything it will create a riot the jewish defense league is an international right wing organization even though it's considered a terrorist group by the f.b.i. it's completely legal and countries like canada and france where it has around three hundred members. at the crease is present of course but it's not everywhere so we have to do what they are incapable of doing correctly from attacking left wing students propellants tinian groups and even writers of their own book launches the league has been accused of being behind a string of violence but the victims say the police have no interest in investigating and accuse them of willful and action. pretty strong and in the police we know there are some people that will to do their job but at some point
3:20 am
you have people in here that are blocking the fight and when those people go on trial the judges most of the time they're being they're being lenient in two thousand and four a documentary actually filmed members of the j d l training in an official building that was being leased by the police many were quick to connect the dots if the police are calling them they are training with their arrest and really had no desire to talk to us when we contacted them about their publicity speaks for itself . do not get in our way because will hurt you very very very badly various local movements an answer rices them activists have called for the group to be banned the french authorities have ignored those calls and those who feel victimized by the group are left looking over their shoulder marina cost survive reports in from paris forty. and we have plenty more stories on our website if you head over to r.t. dot com you will find out about
3:21 am
a new tool to keep protesters at bay which is hitting the markets yes find out about the new mini drones that are capable of firing pepper spray and paint balls and why critics say they're dangerous being underestimated. and you don't find out more about the world's biggest eye in the sky the european southern observateur he has blown the top of a three thousand meter high mountain in chile just so he could set up the largest ever telescope. takes a small village in the philippines may have to make way for a huge u.s. military base as part of the asian nations fight over the resource rich south china sea the country claims that china is trying to take over most of the sea by building artificial islands military cooperation with the u.s. could bolster america's presence in the region where washington already has tens of thousands of troops at dozens of bases journalist james corbett believes putting more pressure on china could lead to a bitter conflict. this has to be seen as just part of
3:22 am
a trend towards the deepening of the us and philippine military alliance that goes right along with the developing us japanese military alliance the us australian military alliance so i think this has to be seen as more part of a regional trend that's developing both china and the us and its allies are playing to their respective political bases and they're looking for economic stimulus that comes from militarization so they are looking to divert more government funds towards the defense sector i think it's part of a feedback loop where one side makes a move so the other is seen to respond to it so the other side responds to the response etc and i think when we're caught in that type of feedback loop it runs the risk of running into a some type of military confrontation scenario simply because when you have all of these ships in these highly disputed territories that are at times running into each other as we start to see these types of incidents that could become a hot war scenario perhaps inadvertently. ok time now to check out some other
