a little later today but just for now here's 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 did announce that he would be sending up to three hundred military advisors to the country sounds innocent right unless you 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 realize that it's of 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 government launching

5:06 am
a simple military solution to this issue isis is also controlling parts of syria fighting against the government of bashar assad 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 so maybe the crisis in iraq is an eye opener showing how complicated the dynamics in the region really are. going to check on r.t. washington d.c. . and the could. living in northeast iraq where they are also fighting on their own battlefront after isis launched its advance kurdish forces were able to push islam it out of the city of kirkuk taking control of a vital oil center there and defense consultants mowen rove believes kurds would be given a chance to create their own independent state the country's been broken away as it is except it's not officially broken where they 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 the been running. 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 group fighting in both iraq and syria is estimated to have around ten thousand soldiers at its disposal with volunteers coming from all parts of the world reports indicate there are as many as three thousand foreigners in their ranks and according to the u.k. foreign minister around four hundred of those are british citizens the steady flow of recruits is also maintained by the pro campaign being staged on social networks with many internet users actually voicing their support for the militant group online and take a look here is one such twitter user from the u.k.

5:18 am
a strong following and a clear message as only we are here present we jews know being cruel we are well trained well equipped we're not afraid and we should be more afraid of us than we are 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 my friends some. felony crazy for doing this 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

5:20 am
police we know there are some people the will to do their job but at some point you have people in here that are blocking the five 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 two members of the j.p.l. training in an office full building that was being leased by the police many were quick to connect the dots if the police. training them 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 racism 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 for r.t. . or the jewish defense league burst into the limelight several years ago following
5:21 am
perceived anti semitic comments from the popular fashion designer john galliano he'd been caught on camera in a local cafe in paris apparently expressing his love for hitler responded by later targeting the premise is covering it in posters labeling galliano an enemy of both israel and friends. meanwhile over at r.t. dot com a new tool to keep protesters a base hitting the markets we'll tell you about new mini drones capable of firing pepper spray paint balls and what critics say their danger is being underestimated . plus the world's biggest eye in the sky the european southern observateur has blown the top of a three thousand meter high mountain in chile so it can set up the largest ever tell it. now it's the small village in the philippines may have to make way for a huge u.s.
5:22 am
military base as part of the asian nations fight over the resource rich south china sea military cooperation with the u.s. could bolster america's presence in the region where washington already has tens of thousands of troops dozens of bases and this month the nations will hold naval drills near the disputed territory which the philippines says beijing is trying to steal from right under its nose journalist james corbett believes that putting more pressure on china could lead to bitter conflict. this has to be seen as just part of 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 pull 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
5:23 am
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. tongue us take a look at some other headlines from around the world starting with an explosion in central syria that's killed more than thirty people fifty more mostly civilians were injured after the bomb went off in a government controlled village near the city of hama officials described the assault as a terror attack and put the blame on rebel forces operating in the area more than three years of civil war in syria have left an estimated one hundred sixty thousand people that. elsewhere torrential rain has triggered massive floods impossible

garia leaving at least ten people dead near the black sea resort of hundreds more have been evacuated after the deluge blocked roads and swept away because heavy rain has also damaged houses and flooded villages just outside the capital syfy forecast to say the extreme weather will continue throughout the day. of the thousands of children in rumania see their mothers or fathers is becoming a rare luxury and that is because the crippling economic situation in the country is driving parents to seek work abroad the strive for a better future is already coming at a high cost as artesian corpus can offer explains. it's become very rare that ten year old william gets to see her mother she went from india to work in italy a year ago leaving her daughter with her grandparents. it's very sad because i have no want to talk about my problems too. is younger and much more introverted he
5:25 am
prefers to spend more time alone both of his parents work in germany while he's also being raised by his grandmother. they sent me toys and clothes but i don't remember when was the last time i saw them. unfortunately nowadays in romania cases such as well in jena in andries are far from unusual this here is called the heart of wishers it's filled with notes from the children where they wrote their wishes and they were told that they would come true next year so all these notes are about parents for instance this one says i wish my mom would come back from london bring toys and then would go together to another countries another one here says i wish my mom would come back from italy and i wish my dad would find a job sure these kids haven't been abandoned by their parents in fact one of the main reasons they want to work abroad is to ensure a better life for them but the long distance relationship can be much harder on children then it may seem they feel isolated. might feel depressed they
5:26 am
feel lengths. and they may be not having so much friends like this. according to official figures over eighty thousand remaining children have their parents working abroad but n.g.o.s are reporting much higher numbers reaching three hundred fifty thousand since most parents used to head off without notifying authorities the situation is they see here is specially when the mother is leaving. mainly for the smaller kids because they're very attached to their mothers and also all well. and especially when the girls sort of dollars sense and they need some guidance and support recently the government passed a law obliging all parents not only to notify the states when they head off to work abroad but to appoint someone to be responsible for their children in court while
5:27 am
they're gone but frankly with the average salary in romania barely reaching four hundred euros per month it's unlikely parents will stop looking for work abroad any time soon you got this going off party bucharest romania. and you know you can join you know neil at the top of the hour for the latest news headlines for now that's all from that maybe we'll be watching is in the world i do hope you have a great day. some people say that when it happens to someone in time not a very nice one the curtain falls down. at some point i could no longer stand it i decided to kill myself. even though i was scared of what i'd done i punched but i didn't understand where i didn't want a man raising his head and the woman should. run from him.
