4:03 am
due to take place in lease on a young girl in a band called the family and wants to know nato's position on missile defense systems in europe and it also wants the new blueprint nato's blueprint for a new strategy of the twenty first century to reflect russia's own security interests and so now as far as missile defense shield in europe is still some what russia wants to know is how is it going to be integrated into the new system as a mere observer or a hands on the disband in that system in the whole row says wrong is still stuck shown to its activation we know that previous plans by the us administration on to the president george w. bush had serious his sport relations with russia but after president obama scrapped those plans now several countries been saying that in particular germany just
4:04 am
recently that russia must be integrated into the new system into the new show. at the moment nato and russia are assessing common threats and challenges of the twenty first century and this document is expected to be ready by the time the example summit takes place at least now another important issue on today's agenda is again a start nato desperately needs russia's help in the war in afghanistan was mrs visit console the heels of a very successful over ration care adult with the help of russia's intelligence agencies who are trying to see for traces were destroyed to between afghanistan and pakistan and trucks blood some two hundred meters to. the russians that she suffers most to draw my thoughts the jews stay in afghanistan most still have against the jews there with ends up in russia and the. the russian foreign minister said on
4:05 am
monday the russians in those circumstances go to sunday school just to get a standard such scenes that the state was pleased to take part in the hope gracious like the one they were the last week aimed against the trophy from the ghana stand currently most to russia's educating of intelligence officers and its universities so it has recently provided the brushwood for military supplies to afghanistan so coke ration continues on to day stops the hobson like this has become an eyes great people with the sides that see the world atop the discussions in these because analysts are saying that both full scale and nato acknowledge that fundamental disagreements still divide for example russia's current look for job training lease nato expansion east wars as one of the main routes to its national security but analysts are also saying that the difference being is now that the sides are willing to grasp the most sensitive issues but open debate on the stage and
4:06 am
facebook late last night in his rival to moscow andras for rasmussen wrote time has come for a fresh start in nato russian relations the clear message to the russian people is that nato does not see russia as an enemy but as a quote not a strategic war but while sco today will be pushing for more than just words from nato chief. for more on the nato chief's talks in moscow where now joined by a hundred by car these are critical analyst from moscow state university of international relations thanks indeed for joining us here on down to you know after the war in self-assertive two years ago russia's relations with nato you should know what to do with almost blue content rosen do you think they've now been the steward to rebuild the. world and fulfilling the image was full so i think that. we haven't yet restored our relationship to the pre-war levels but if we look
4:07 am
at the history of russian nature relations over the past two decades almost you'll see that it has been a history of lows and highs in our relationship which means that we now try to cooperate on the most effective basis there are areas we would like to cooperate areas where we have disagreements and this is probably the best description of a problematic operation that sums up partnership at this point so i don't think that we should be very much set about the fact that we are not intensely cooperating as we used to because we have interests words from some both of us and we have arrows of. mutual interest in a way that's demanded albatros the attention that is why i think the relationship will be developing that's as at a slower pace than they used to in the midst lying to us but still they'll be a lot of constructive areas where we need to focus our attention yes so you mentioned the mutual areas there russia has been accusing nato of not doing enough to tackle illegal drug production afghanistan but last week there was
4:08 am
a major joint operation against drug producers does this show that the positions of moscow in brussels on that issue are getting closer at least. what i think in a way brussels just paid heed to russia's concerns about. not doing enough in terms of fighting against drug drug traffickers in afghanistan at the same time i don't think that brussels has the same concerns as russia has because brussels realizes that drugs is probably one of the pillars of the current i've got economy and if we continue fighting against drugs well that's a very sort of. high speed it will just end up having no i've got the economy at all which will lead to bigger to come because just a free the going to stop which is what i think they're trying to sort of produce an impression that. they are heeding russian russia's concerns but in fact i don't
4:09 am
think that our positions on the rate as sort of getting getting close either way i don't think that it is happening in chile still with afghanistan or russia has become a supply route for nato troops there how successful in your opinion has this been and how important is it for nato. world made to blames the tough ones very old friends for mates in terms of being the supplier and we actually don't bow to us with thinking about it made so realizes that it's russia can be some help in this respect we are ready to help but on the other hand it is also you know our best interest to keep track of what is happening in afghanistan because it's may pose a threat to our national interest but i think that is again another area of the shell corporation and of regional interests so well they need to see the losses in the political part but russia also realizes that it's important to book to be operative to this respect yes so looking into the future that nato is expected to present its new strategy in the lisbon summit later this month what role do you
4:10 am
expect russia to play in the alliances new strategic vision of space. well as it is very well known the only little is known about the content of this new strategic concept of nato but what we expect it to have in this continent is that nato will continue expanding its role and mission and the arrows can still see the logic graphic of it but also in the problem areas and russia is expected to come closer to leighton in tackling those issues because in fact if we look at least to russia and nato since two thousand and one we'll see that's been in effect so russia has become an associated member of laserbeak the way that it has been dissipated all of the major nato operations which is an abrasion of afghanistan so i think the new strategic concept that's going to be presented in november is going to. sort of justify russia's euro the ladies of gracious it's ok we have to leave
4:11 am
it there for now. political analyst from the moscow state university of international relations thank you very much indeed for joining us here not thank you. but moving on to the us now where president obama's party has lost control of the congress in the midterm elections democrats have managed to retain a majority in the senate and the house of representatives is now in the hands of the republicans with congress divided between the two parties it would make it much harder for president obama to go forward with his legislative agenda but many voters have other concerns they were at about the corporate bankrolling the candidates the vast amounts of campaign cash was poured into these elections a spokesman for the u.s. green party says the runaway spending is detrimental to the country's political system. of the important thing to point out is that that money comes from corporations and corporate money has poisoned our democracy but the real problem is
4:12 am
an election system that is rigged against us in several ways there are state laws regarding ballot access that democrats and republicans have passed together to privilege themselves to privilege their own candidate while hindering the ability of all the parties and independents to participate in the democratic process we need to get those laws overturned and we need to make the us a multi-party democracy the only real democracy is a multi-party democracy. well with political difficulties in sight for getting legislation through former congressman tom andrews says it will make it even harder for washington to solve its pristine economic problems. there are a lot of things that need to be done in this country that are not being done unfortunately the script in this election is number one we haven't seen the change in the economic prospects of this country change enough with
4:13 am
a nine point six percent unemployment rate nationally and in some of these very competitive districts double digit unemployment rates and of course the deficit has continued to increase as the economy has continued to slide so what you have is people who are taking advantage of that very dire situation and saying it's the politicians in washington who are spending like drunken sailors and causing this economic collapse and we need to change fundamentally the decision makers in washington d.c. the problem that we're going to face is that these candidates who are now being elected who have been running on the basis of this very very high octane rhetoric and all these negative ads are not going to be in a position or feel that they're going to be comfortable compromising and engaging in the kind of give and take that you need in order to make a government work people are anxious they're nervous they want to see immediate change what they don't want to see is gridlock and i'm afraid that one of the consequences of this election will be gridlock in washington and i think that will
4:14 am
translate into a pox on everyone both parties houses if washington can't step up and get some things get some things done once the election smoke is cleared here in the nation's capital. yes thomas sanders their former congressman talking to us from washington well still ahead in the program fighting for survival. still being forced to fend for themselves even if it means breaking the ice a few minutes. this week has been the bloodiest in iraq for months at least seventy six people have been. killed and two hundred wounded in a series of attacks in maine a sheer neighborhoods in baghdad the blasts came just two days after al qaeda militants took a christian congregation hostage leaving fifty eight dead total u.s. pullout shaving off the end of next year when iraqis say they feel abandoned amid escalating violence it's forcing some to join me and me one sunni group raised by

4:16 am
these paramilitary groups upholding the rule of law or are some of their activities questionable as suggested in the four hundred thousand iraq documents released by wiki leaks in one account has sons of iraq leader is said to be responsible for the murder of innocent civilians conducting insurgent activities under the guise of a sons of iraq leader extortion and rape. everything has a positive and a negative some leaders use their position for settling trouble scores stockpiling weapons making money and killing innocent civilians but the majority brought stability that women. but that majority also feels abandoned by an america which armed trained and paid them and despite big promises less than half of the ninety thousand strong force has been given work or absorbed into iraqi security forces but this man is one of the few who has but he's afraid to reveal his identity. to
4:17 am
talk after the americans were finished with his groups after iraq was secure they no longer supported us especially when the iraqi government charged our leaders with crimes a lot of the leaders have lost trust in the american and iraqi government and are afraid that while working for them for they might face charges and or assassination . iraqi security officials say hundreds of sons of iraq members have returned to al qaeda and that many of the thousands now on the iraqi government payroll secretly aid the insurgency for observers like ideal iraqi security forces are running a losing race to keep up to speed to either integrate the groups or to be able to secure iraq without them and i think that how that the training given by the u.s. was not complete and it never will be because america wants iraqis to keep beating them they don't want to rock to build a strong army and that way they can justify staying in the country and making sure iraq is never strong enough to control the region. in army bases like those iraqi
