in. brighton if you move. from plans to. start on t.v. dot com. press wiki leaks revelations show russia's opposition leaders begged washington for help against the current leadership but what turned down. for a car bomber pressures his chinese counterpart to that beijing's currency rise as fear is increase of americans of the eastern economic heavyweights growing might. and israel's is on the east report on one of the world's largest buying facilities it will have intercepting every phone call and e-mail in the entire hemisphere.
there it's at one pm here in moscow and you're watching r.t. welcome to the program our top story the russian opposition leaders and human rights activists pleaded with top u.s. officials to support their plans for political and social change based on fresh files from wiki leaks russia's komsomolskaya pravda newspaper reports that the groups were consistently critical of the kremlin and wanted american help for reform the request was apparently given short shrift by washington for more on the timing of the copra tell you what are the latest revelations. well russian opposition is blaming washington d.c. for basically turning a blind eye to human rights violations taking place in the country they want the u.s. to monitor the situation with civil rights in russia much more closely they also believe that criticism from the us towards russia is crucial to a healthier situation with human rights. in the car to the also wanted russian the
united states to sit down at the table together and think about how they could improve the situation with human rights here well. they have told one of the us stop for security officials that the u.s. help is needed for them to improve the situation but the response from mr michael mcfaul was rather straightforward he has said that russia's opposition has to learn to negotiate with the country's authorities on it so. washington should pay more attention to significant incidents related to freedom of assembly in russia to solve problems in russia civic society parties should sit down at the negotiation table both russian and the us governments and representatives from n.g.o.s it is up to russian activists to build up their relations with their administration with value to relying on america. mr mack for has said that the united states is
not blind or indifferent to human rights problems in russia but it doesn't look like the united states is going to be showing any support to russia's opposition in that respect but indeed as you mentioned washington's not going to interfere in relations between russia's government and the country's opposition so what reasons did it give for that approach. well of course the during the years of bush administration the u.s. has showed much more support to russia's opposition especially when it came to questioning the country's democracy but now it looks like the two countries the administration's of the two countries have a much more better understanding in specially after the reset of relations of the relations between the two which by the way of russia's opposition's russia's opposition considers a big threat to the country's democracy and that is why prior to the two thousand and twelve presidential election in russia the country's opposition has also asked for the united states to intervene and how. make the elections more democratic
because they believe the main threat is coming from the possibility of prime minister put in becoming president once again which in their view will see very early and them edge their relations between russia and the united states but in that respect the top one of the top u.s. security officials has said that sir perhaps or the united states and russia's opposition have very different views on democracy even said that perhaps the president has no understanding what americans understand under democracy. to further improve relations between russia and the u.s. the a bomb or administration has a stance simply refrain from vocal support for democratic reform civil society activists in russia are unaware of the contours of the u.s. approach to shuman right and its record of public statements and speeches russia's democrats remain in near terminal disagree constant personality disputes disagreements with the kremlin differences over the viability of political activity
. another reason why it doesn't look like the united states is going to be showing any support to russia's opposition is because like mr much force that they believe that the opposition is acting in a rather an effective way. ok for now and tell an overcoat that thank you for that . still to come on the program russian fashion is stepping across borders. these are the vogue. russian made for. the wall easy enough to come by in russia fashion found in europe that found it much harder to get back on the meek that. is how traditional boots that kept the peasants and czars worn for centuries now spread into groups towards. barack obama as keeping the pressure on china to the value of its currency rise with further comments during
the chinese presence for the troops united states is one of the most divisive issues between the two nations in america saying the rug is being tapped into the you've times exports vantage. on the sports nearly half a million u.s. jobs it's not just trading partner off to canada mexico is also the largest foreign holder of u.s. debt but to leaders also discussed human rights jintao same china is willing to continue talks based on mutual respect the interference in internal affairs. and for the ports on the two countries next relationship. and we're going to burger king with my son and i. think it's a z.h. using the jews e z h u z h u and recognize the that is chinese for seven americans the word china elicits fear recognizing china's rise means recognizing america's decline and now we are getting not our toys in our things in
our little happy meals which should be banned there so dangerous. not just our toys in the bag made in china. but the image and everything else culture coming from china. or others china elicits feelings of inferiority according to the pew research center forty seven percent of americans think china is the world's leading economic power only thirty one percent think america is. certainly the opinion among students at millinocket school in maine which will welcome paying chinese students to close its budget gap next year i think the chinese are going to be total shock i think about high tech in a way more advanced elastic ten times more money in like in a better society and then you look at eisenhower like whore and nothing as hu jintao towards the u.s. capitol american officials are eager to quell fears about what
a rising china could mean for the world's only superpower still some analysts say that the united states should be focusing on what it can learn from china rather than merely containing it china knows how to develop their doing we are expanding boring and consuming rather than saving and investing for the future a sentiment echoed by many we spoke to a lot to learn terms of productivity organizational resources and also having a culture that values hard work and i think they're trying to develop their economy and share some of the wealth with the folks economically politically militarily china is on the rise and while the u.s. put education on the chopping block this year china invested four percent of its g.d.p. in primary and secondary schools in poor rural areas chinese universities are mushrooming all across the country and increasingly attracting prestigious foreign professors and even american students like philadelphia native zachary franklin seemed.
just a better decision to be in the country learning about economics where so much is happening economically getting a master's in shanghai doesn't mean crippling student loans chinese students themselves you know not pain absorbing amounts of money for an education in this country. china is also speeding ahead on high speed rail lines in massive infrastructure chinese officials say they will complete the first eco city by two thousand and twenty which will be home to three hundred fifty thousand as u.s. lawmakers squabble for years over who will foot the bill for every high speed rail link bridge or metro expansion america just adds dreams to rebuild the whole interstate system where you gigantic infrastructure projects in u.s. history the city more unified as a people are moving in a positive direction and i wish we could say the same president obama has plenty to put on the table as he hosts his chinese counterpart at the first u.s. china state dinner but will the white house be equally eager to learn from its gas
and ford r t washington d.c. well and to govern national who's of globalization honest gave us his reasons why china is becoming the new geopolitical needa. the rise of china is not against the prevailing edgemont in the world america but the rise of china is we in the hedge money system itself and what i mean by that is that globalization which is a western driven reach driven project. has facilitated the rise of china so china rises so much as the west allows it to rise by now that china is stronger and feels more secure they're starting to weaken issued it's on their own they're starting to try to create a consumption class with engineering itself become more sense of steam so american journal had a very codependent relationship in which china finances america's debt allowing america to be militaristic around the world controlling resources america consumes
chinese products which are developed cheaply benefiting both china and america so they're incredibly dependent in terms of finance and banking they're heavily heavily integrated but there's also it's schizophrenia relationship in a sense because they're also each other's greatest competitors and this is mostly seen in the competition for global resources and this has been outlined in strategy papers in america since the early ninety's where the aim is to prevent the rise of the power by controlling world resources by the u.s. death toll comes under scrutiny in the kaiser report that they all ought to be as max and stacey were of a of a destructive streak running through the upper echelons of wall street. this psychological profile of jamie dimon lloyd blankfein. morgan this guy daley is that of the arsonist the arsonist likes to burn things down there pyromaniacs here on wall street have got debt maniacs they like to destroy things with debt and
they like the price of debt debate as cheap as a pack of matches. if the price of dead is a cheap as a pack of matches as it is now they can continue to burn things down to destroy the economy like they're doing at this very moment and what is the obama administration doing they are giving the pyromaniacs and the arsonist more starting fluid more lighter fluid more matches whatever they need to destroy the economy so you have to ask the question is obama in the pocket of the financial terrorist yes it is. he's been described as israel's big is a huge facility where it's claimed phone calls and e-mails from will cross the middle east and beyond can be monitored for intelligence or hidden from prying eyes for decades in the desert it's become a focus for this because journalists ortiz course there was more on this thing in.
many israelis have probably driven past year and not cast a second glance a few satellite dishes outside a little known town in the negev desert but this is no ordinary military base this is the largest or equal storing facility that i've seen on the earth and hagar should know he's been studying signal intelligence or electronic spying for the last twenty five years a tip off gave him access to people on the inside you know want to talk to or and still could be stepping up its simply to come on the back it never been seen but now it's showing up all over satellite images with thirty different listening antennas directed high over the equator each targeting a different dish in the sky kate everything that passing over the satellite system simply doesn't discriminate ever be with you and that's a lot of listening from this hub every telephone call every email can be
intercepted and according to duncan campbell somewhere here along the coast the water tell a very large groups of people on this typically you have a large window what looked like dust through a warehouse but with massive security you are seeing many such places across the united states and several hundred people will check in in the morning start filing through checking emails looking at the listening to telephone calls but inside israel no one's talking haven't heard about the boat i don't know what's the word refers to exactly what is the reason behind the focus if there is a focus of this particular word is just a platform you have to understand the new comes to intelligence you need a platform in order to carry. needs you need in order to intercept but why wasn't this platform itself intercepted it was pretty well hidden
until recently when hey. winter public on ash my first surprise was the style that they quit that there was this huge spying facility which will be profoundly enforcing the politics of the middle east to be old but then the sick and very surprise was that it clearly being there as long as the symbol the basis what's your point the brits had it in germany russia any other states and other countries and just maybe that's the point of those who need to know know exactly where it is what did. he tell of if. not to britain where the iraq war inquiry could leave some feeling that an important piece of the jigsaw was missing just because a product or spondon between george w. bush and tony benn ran up the call that. morning conditional supposed to quest to the rich and political figures on line with no they did was just politician a journey congress was in power at a time when x. talent he tells us on the investigation of what respect it's wednesday to an
international. conspiracy. i feel the judgment and it's that he is the only one that was involved in every single one of the decisions in every single one of the meetings he's the one who saw the attorney general's apparently informal advice he's the one who decided what from the attorney general would be put in front of the cabinet he's the one who discussed with jack straw and with jeremy greenstock what went before the u.n. security council and he's the one side of what he was going so to what he didn't say to prom so yes he's absolutely central to it but this is in a sense the last chance saloon. british public inquiries because we had the foreign office. committee inquiry we had the parliamentary process and then gordon brown agreed that this inquiry would be set up and indeed it has been set up if we're to have any reasonable standing as an effective democracy then this inquiry has got to
go into some very serious detail about it and recommendations about what's going to happen next no it's not a judicial inquiry which many of us wanted but i get the feeling that a legal process could emanate as a result of the evidence that's going to come out. is that a look at outside the headlines from around the world. three members to receive president's family have been arrested trying to leave the country they're accused of crimes against tunisia. only a promise to live up to the people's revolt and with total break from the past violence demonstrations continue with all that asked of president supporters refusing to recognize the government. woman gabrielle giffords is expected to be moved to a rehabilitation center almost two weeks after her attempted murder will say she is now able to stand with assistance and is ready to begin the next phase of. giffords
