turning midday here in moscow thanks for joining us on r.t. international take your world headlines. a standoff between rights groups and the u.s. military over coalition actions during the liberation of mosul is heating up. the international report accusing the coalition of partial responsibility for civilian casualties a senior u.s. commander called the allegations disrespectful and naive. the iraqi security forces have put the safety of civilians is the absolute sense of peace the liberation of the city in providing support to the iraqi security forces we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that when we strike we only kill the enemy. of my children were killed in fighting in iraq you. i blew
a six years old when my youngest girl was five this year my older daughter also died she was seventeen she was killed by now. by using exposed weapons with wide area facts disproportionate airstrikes in downstate populated areas the us last college and iraqi forces failed to adapt their tactics to the reality on the ground during the anti eisel operation in mosul iraq and u.s. led forces used unguided artillery mortars and improvised bombs these weapons are highly imprecise and according to human rights watch they use in heavily populated areas like mosul can be quote unlawfully indiscriminate the coalition also used white phosphorus which in a rare cases is allowed under international law. former counterterrorism intelligence officer says the use of white phosphorus in populated areas could be considered a war crime. if these weapons such as white phosphorus or. tools
such as white phosphorus are used as weapons in civilian areas it is likely to constitute a war crime in any case because you're using a weapon that is an incendiary against civilians or in a way that is reckless as to whether civilians are endangered and therefore it will be court considered like this because it is a disproportionate use of that tall as a weapon the obligation legally is to use weapons in a proportionate matter to minimize the risk as fast as possible to civilians but what we see again and again isn't just the use of heavy weapons such as a five hundred thousand pound two hundred fifty five hundred kilo weight bombs and so on being used heavy weapons from across largely indiscriminate unguarded weapons such as rocket launchers such as artillery and mortars these can be quite accurate but many of them on not we saw a precision weapons being used by the americans a couple of months ago that the target was to. to isis snipers and yet one hundred
four civilians were admitted body americans to have been killed in the attack even using precise weapons. after the victory of i'm still in mosul u.s. c'mon to warn the iraqi government about the possible reemergence of an upgraded version of the terrorist organization. and investigates. making sure that i still doesn't set up shop again might be just as hard as getting rid of it in the first place and while everyone is celebrating the liberation of mosul the top u.s. commander in iraq says to be aware of isis two point zero if we keep isis two point zero from the iraqi government is going to have to do something pretty significantly different so what exactly should the iraqi government do differently any advice i think the primary condition that caused the rise of isis was the fact that a significant portion of the iraqi population this case the sunni's disaffected the
iraqis have to make sure after isis is defeated that all iraqis government in baghdad is their government so sectarian violence is the main destabilizing factor now didn't everything start to go wrong a few years back after a certain little military intervention you know iraq invasion one point zero the consequence was that if we were trying to rehabilitate the country for those elements we're trying to rid spicing terry of violence and that is what we did not foresee so after reducing a formerly stable country to over a decade and a half of chaos the usa now warns baghdad that it better start building bridges and enforcing reconciliation the usa for its part intends to stay the iraqi government has expressed an interest in having the u.s. forces and coalition forces remain after the defeat of isis our government is
equally interested in that as are several coalition governments have expressed an interest in joining in that effort so all of this help with sectarian violence the violence in iraq and syria has only made the long standing feud between the sunni and the shia worse on top of that you have the kurds in their upcoming independence referendum a lot of this sounds like shutting the barn door after the horse has already bolted it's almost like a case of nash. well amnesia we forgot what happened in two thousand and three when president bush said mission accomplished we've done everything we need to do a great victory the reality is that just created the problems that we're still fighting today so the idea that we're going to do the same thing which is to defeat so-called enemy there and then remain indefinitely and somehow the result will be different i think it is an absolute fantasy so we won't necessarily turn iraq into switzerland if we leave but it's inevitable but that somehow the iraqis will have to solve their own problems in one way or the other so stay or go it looks like
either way the united states will have to make the best of a bad choice what mop and artsy new york. the pentagon has briefed the german military on the new f. thirty five fighter jet as the european nation considers it as a possible replacement for its aging tornado warplanes. now examining whether the f. thirty five would make a good substitute. the f. thirty five was meant to be the ultimate aircraft the swiss army knife of fighter jets ready and equipped for everything the project has been years in the making worked on by the brightest minds from all over the globe and has cost billions and billions of dollars.
looks awesome right well the creation of this jack of all trades plane has been a bumpy road the project has seen numerous drafts due to various issues including having the blueprints stolen at one point and the budget has expanded over time as well nearly doubling the initial figure of thirty five program programs record of performance has been both a scandal and a tragedy that his experience issues with cost is going to become completely in affordable aircraft deliveries amount to no more than a mere trickle relative to the original promises of the program what's going to happen with that airplane is going to die a slow when i get it isn't that what is so great about the f. thirty five it must be perfect for air combat well now according to a report released by the department of defense it displays objectionable or unacceptable flying qualities but surely it has top notch perception accuracy. given no only if the target is clearly marked and undefended the department of
defense says the f. thirty five will be forced to fly much closer to the ground to engage targets and those will likely need to be only lightly defended ones at most well at least it must be great for a pilot to fly around again. ok last try has it been a good value well now it's been dubbed the most expensive plane anywhere ever i think you know the answer i know it's production costs could yet again up another seven percent hitting four hundred six point five billion dollars just for a bit of perspective belgium's entire g.d.p. in two thousand and fifteen was four hundred and fifty four billion dollars so with all of that in mind you think the project might have been reconsidered already i think the united states government is to fall too far along with what the f.
thirty five. just to abandon it at this point you have other governments now that have committed in there whether nato and nato that committed to the f. thirty it's now become a project that's too big to fail but surely when so much money has been thrown at it there must be something to be proud of what is it good it's not good at anything . ok i turkey can fly at least a little bit about something jacqueline r.t. washington d.c. . ten pasir in moscow the us president is in paris for a two day visit there were made disagreements with the french leader donald trump and emanuel to hold a meeting later today and attend a bastille day parade on friday. i have friends who go to france they love friends you know love it any more they're not going to he said i wouldn't go to france france this is no longer france france is no longer france or the all of our of.
president trouble there's a paris to celebrate best deal day the president is scheduled to visit paris president heads to paris. protection will lead to greater prosperity and strength. to me. you didn't you didn't see if. this is a message for american researchers please come to france you are welcome.
though the discord between the presidents might be eased on thursday evening with a bit of wining and dining as micron is poised to take right there the famous eiffel tower for a rare blue lobster dinner but meanwhile some see the upcoming meeting as a battle between two superheroes so we hit the streets of paris to find out what people there think about the two men's and superpowers. captain planet. he's welcomed americans to france got to know our indian supervillain. we still need. to come i can run. the does he really suppose pumped up about the books tell me it is a pistol. true it's ours it's
a good sophie may be pretty easy to manipulate. their money you don't know their way on the. plate i just tell you. the place you mention down push him down being me good let me get you know was. the book. to come the superman. movie can come out it's not that even the big guns ok micro ok this is just like you know it being ok might compose. arrived. in the palace for talks on bolstering ties between the two countries despite the american and german leaders both coming to the french presidential palace within hours of each other we understand according to the show jewels that will not be
crossing. still many more stories coming your way here in artsy today including protestors mistakenly celebrating. a back number. in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around. corporations washington washington media the. voters elected to run this country business it. must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done. what hope to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or
rejected. so when you want to be president. some want. to go and. this is what the three of them will be good. interested always in the water. thanks for joining us for your years. analogies and u.s. politics have become something of a trend this year this time the victim was fox news host tucker carlson for suggesting that the u.s. should work with russia in syria. except the people who are bad people share interests and he still likes chinese leader the one hundred thirty eight saying hillary hasn't attacked us i think he's insane. you can think it's insane all you
want he's compared me to a nazi apologist because i asked a simple question he is as bad as hitler but as soon as i stepped into office the fewer comparisons started flooding it. now the scrubwoman is. weird i know the trolls trump being there reminded me of hitler addressing the nazi party but i feel better if streets i must traded for are. like ninety percent of what he says i'm like this guy gets. protesters may have been given a taste of their own medicine they were filmed chairing a rally speech by a prankster comprised entirely of quotes by at all fit. there is one thing we must never forget the majority can never replace the man life is like a mirror if you round it round. if you smile in return. donald trump seems to
all of your get up while i tell everybody you know it will be only it's not the truth that matters. right. on the political analyst charles all told told us the extreme allegations against trump are being used as a distraction i just think there's an element on the left that is very fond of gaslighting that is to say when trouble is approaching they come up with the most incendiary comments to distract from the real damage that's going to come the hillary clinton side they've they've come up with this enormous canard they get the press whipped up and over here our mainstream press moves in lockstep so if the theme comes down that we've got to compare trump to hitler you'll see the washington post do it the new york times the mainstream media c.n.n. and cetera and i don't recall if i you know i wasn't following it continually during obama's eight years i don't recall protracted assaults against obama under
a theory that he was some kind of hitler to call somebody hitler may that's a very serious accusation to make if you know anything at all about history and so i think that people are making those accusations today should be ashamed of themselves. bloody may putin's recent trip to a monastery got the tabloids gossiping after a lady in red was apparently spotted in the back of his car but all isn't quite as it seems.
a coming into immediate range ballistic missile similar to the one allegedly being developed in north korea meantime yang has warned that any kind of military confrontation will quote inevitably lead the u.s. to self-destruction and evolve to quote turn america into a pile of. or the drill was planned months ago it is being seen as a response to north korea's latest missile test that was a week ago now after that test trump expressed dissatisfaction with china for not putting enough pressure on north korea artie's emily soon are looking at looking at washington's well stance on potentially leaning on a regional powers. even before the eleven missile tests north korea conducted this year the u.s. has long demanded beijing to do more to curb pyongyang's nuclear program this rhetoric even got a term of its own the china responsibility theory which angered beijing if you don't don't think you should join or is neither
a focal points of contradictions over the issue no rude driving force behind the current escalation of tensions on the peninsula if china is striving to put out the for now while the other is a fueling the flame how can china's if it's achieve expected outcomes how can the tension be eased to be fair china is only major diplomatic ally and economic partner so it makes sense for the u.s. and others to urge beijing to use its leverage on north korea china and other regional partners should also step up their efforts to help of this security situation we need to work together to deal with some of the pressing difficult issues such as the threat from north korea but is it fair to expect beijing to ease tensions on the peninsula while washington fans the crisis by flexing its military muscles in the region every chance it gets.
on top of that we are talking about trump. two politicians who have little to agree on except maybe their desire for attention we're going to beat these aliens because we've got the because the military you want to see what. you. do out. this baby some attacks that. china understands what the p.r. government actually thinks that came junk in government thinks they believe that nuclear weapons are absolutely essential for their own security the u.s. government carries out war exercises simulating the destruction of north korea twice a year they just did a nuclear bomb dropping drilled the chinese never had the ability to tell north korea what to do donald trump either did not understand this another words of failure on his part to actually understand the relationship or he was just trying to do arm twisting against china but we can see now from china's statement that they have run out of patience that they consider it to be an abrogation of u.s.
responsibility to find a way to come to a solution in the korean crisis bear in mind that north korea also said its ruling to return to the negotiating table if the u.s. is willing to meet the hermit state half way namely to stop large scale joint military exercises with south korea and this is how the u.s. responded i know that has to be me or sation the secretary said he's not going to negotiate his way back to the negotiating table plain as the ball so instead of the china responsibility theory perhaps washington should stop provoking north korea and take heed of the chinese proverb don't fan the flames that support the fire. the killer of russian opposition politician boris nemtsov was just being sentenced down your whole going to join me live with more details on this right here on the program today. daniel how has the trial concluded. it's been almost two and a half years since. killed on the bridge outside moscow kremlin in
a case that will resonate both at home here in russia and abroad with accusations and speculations very quick to fly in all directions in the days and weeks following the murder several men were arrested within weeks of the murder already chechen men from the southern part of russia with one of them named as the mastermind behind the organization behind the organization of the murder with a fifty million dollar reward allegedly offered to these men to kill the opposition figure now putin was quick to personally promise that the killers will be found and brought to justice it has taken a while for that to happen though not least because of complications with the jewelry the case has been long and very difficult with much evidence to be reviewed the jury have to take pauses several times to jurors were released from the case really has dragged on now it seems the case can be brought to
a close it has been named as the mastermind of the murder he's been on an international wanted list since the end of two hundred fifteen and is still at large but several of the men now have been convicted to eleven to twenty years in prison so it's hopeful people involved affected by this case in russia and abroad as i said earlier can now finally have some closure in what's been one of the most dramatic murder cases of the most high profile murder cases in russia of recent years right artie's i don't know hawkins thank you. are coming up next here on this network the kaiser report. found out that you. can't you just gave them. elite. hate. being that doesn't mean
i'll build. on them and. by then i got a session on the nod that they know. by then is assess the long. haul of a startling audience and most is going on want. some. solace . and also it was revealed to the multiple injuries among current america so for them to keep sophie hold the look of the show's real year mars on the phone to the book and if you can book a political symbol for the sister you're welcome to put in a little some of what my. mom hanumant of nothing of. us allowed me. somethin to work. on long enough something not set in. the market until huddles look
oh mary says or this is the kaiser report mexico city they love it here oh it's fantastic and you know they've got some situations brewing very important stacy next person i have to give her this is our friend guillermo is the guitarist for the day of the dead. the dead markets the dead monetary policy the dead currency used that rule our world i think is quite important i as i understand the gemmell as a friend of plucky. plucky could make it on the trip well clucky is a central banker and garo is the guy who is waiting for the central bankers when their policies inevitably fail yeast he's always telling them you know he's that he's he's deaf essentially yes yes gallows waiting for the central bankers to come
across over the river styx into the realm of death and i believe there's death in the story coming up of course janet yellen again we have to remind you that we can half ago that she said to the markets fed's yellen says not another financial crisis in our lifetime member she was over in europe and she was in london chorus where all the financial crimes really that's the nexus of the financial crimes that's where they are all nurtured and baby and. lives behind present good word so she said what i say there will never ever be another fight national crisis you know probably that would be going too far but i do think we're much safer and i hope that it will not be in our lifetimes and i don't believe it will be now i just want to say like i said gamble here has.
