time the rebels said that these authors were insincere and could not be trusted so certainly a lot of mistrust between both sides neither willing to be the first to lay down arms but on the full measure trying to slightly different picture is emerging we are hearing from the country film the prime minister mr. o'grady that the lines of communication have been opened and that they're hoping to intensify them they say that they are talking with the british the french and the americans to reach some kind of neutral settlement that would see the stopping of killings of civilians now we are hearing the same line coming out of london it has confirmed that in recent weeks it has been meeting in private with several high ranking libyan officials we know that just on reins day mohammed ismail who is a cast of aid after duffy's son was in london he was trying to organize what we understand some kind of exit strategy for the gadhafi family but landed insisting that any kind of deal any kind of settlement plan would have to include gadhafi

2:04 am
are slightly better organized than they are now stopping the inexperienced young fighters who showed themselves to flee in the face of chaos from actually reaching the frontline we are also being told that they have new communication instruments with them in the form of satellite phones in the form of radios these have no doubt provided by the international community we're also being told that their bills have water and some new recruitment they are stripping out the fight on the ground we're hearing from the european union that if asked is really to send a few managerial mission it what you see in chile hold or not a military operation that will provide humanitarian assistance in the sense of hoping to evacuate displaced people and also provide assistance to humanitarian organizations working here. well journalist and author susan though says the rebels are too weak disorganized to dictate conditions to get doctors forces. will never step down he's

a fighter to the end and it is seems extraordinary that the losing opposite the opposition forces while they are losing the war we try to dictate the terms of surrender to the party to winning which is the united nations has jumped into this conflict before they were before they understood who they were teaming up with they did not understand anything about this opposition force the opposition force is not highly motivated they may be passionate in their politics but they are not highly organized on the battlefield essentially you're going to have to have a ground war to remove gadhafi. well meanwhile some say the policy of double standards may play into the hands of criminals but leaders around the world continue to rally against moammar gadhafi of the past seven sometimes it is a punishment for the crimes they commit. an israeli businessmen

2:09 am
the seventh of two thousand and eight the georgia begin the major artillery bombardment of the sleeping city of thought and of the peaceful palace in. the region which georgia wanted to bring under its control was razed to the ground . hundreds were killed in the attack joe maestas nearly lost his daughter in sacrifice really as bombings she was visiting relatives in one of the towns in the south of setia i believe saakashvili should be removed from office i think you should be tried in international courts for rule crimes but when it comes to me even though the e.u. finding mission determined that he started to worry in two thousand and eight and ordered the bloodbath in south the safety of the georgian president is still supported in the west they have no strategic interest in. supporting his overthrow the notion that decisions get made on the basis of humanitarian concerns is simply
2:10 am
false it doesn't it's not the basis for the decision about libya it's not the basis for decisions about georgia about palestine about kosovo the question of who is held responsible and how is very much a strategic question it's not a legal question as it should be to boost its strategic importance among other things georgia has dispatched one thousand troops to join allied forces in afghanistan and became the leading troop contributor relative to georgia's overall population the boundless and as this ox. the interview shows almost unstoppable praise of the u.s. is also believed to have played a role in the west supporting saakashvili no matter what his crimes america's like because it's based on british and american archer and more and more even referred more through got to the elders of this because say for a regulation that the bastards are here now as the world has declared a no fly zone over libya to stop gadhafi many wonder why
2:11 am
a no fly zone was never on the table when the georgian has launched the campaign or when israel bombed the gas it was three weeks in a row on the question for example of gaza where you had a blatant act of aggression clearly a violent massive violation of not only international human rights norms but work crimes crimes against humanity being created fourteen hundred people killed of whom or the nine hundred were civilians more than three hundred were children it was a situation that went on for days the problem there is that israel is the protector protectorate of the united states and the u.s. is not going to allow anyone the united nations or anyone else to actually engage in a serious way in stopping that massacre you would think if a leader commits atrocities he would be pretty like they could be denounced banned
2:12 am
from travel but that's not the way politics works the georgian president killed scores of civilians but was exonerated by the west politicians accept him as a friend business leaders are looking to invest in his country and since the grass is happy to continue turning a blind eye to the blood outside but he's head i'm going to check that reporting from washington our team. well still to come for you on the program why the u.s. dollar could be out of the picture of the creation of a new global interest. i think it would be. what we have were a free country you can come from nothing and make a million dollars. but you have opportunity. and other opinions are gathered by the rest and show host on the streets of new york. and putting the pieces in place we report on the assembly site of the so you spacecraft the actual show you if one of us real space exploration program.

the un's top nuclear fishel has warned that the operation to solve the crisis stricken fukushima facility will be prolonged over three weeks after a devastating earthquake and tsunami situation when serious. pan's prime minister sets of dallas facility to boost morale among those working at the site workers have been using fresh water from a barge and they suspect. it's also say that expanded twenty kilometer evacuation zone the radiation was registered forty kilometers from the city american writer and commentator on japan. says the government is not doing enough to resolve the crisis. of the biggest problems they are dealing with here is this whole thing is it left in the hands of the electrical company and in most of the large countries of the world i think if you had a problem of this seriousness you'd have the now the central government coming in
2:14 am
with all the big resources at their disposal the army the navy the resources of this phone company are not up to it they don't have enough cars and vans and so on to get through to the site well them. wealthy countries like japan there are other ways to do it and yet the government just seems to just unwilling to make a move beyond what some bureaucrat's in the electrical company are telling them look there are many problems not only variations one of the curious questions is why are they staying at a facility that is subject to radioactivity just fine. meters from the site they're cutting waste to bring in tents to go temporary shelter say a long kilometer or even two which will lower the amount of radioactivity that they're exposed to the issue is not so much what the electrical company did or didn't do but why the central government seems unwilling to step in and not. rest

scandalous some politically charged trial in georgia has ended with an israeli investor being sentenced to seven years in jail or any food who is charged with bribery maintains that he was set up on a georgian government invest one hundred million dollars. which over. rony folks is not only a major investor in georgia he's also an on record solent position combining both economic development and all the rock diplomacy he works as an oil trader in new york for some people teen years and yes he invested huge amounts of cash in georgia back in the nineteen ninety s. and of course surprisingly before he managed to the last year he received an invitation to visit george air from the prime minister of the country himself now why surprisingly because peeved teen years rooney folks has been demanding one hundred million dollars from georgia the money which georgia owes him for
2:16 am
a bridge to grammont on construction of an oil pipeline back in the ninety's now a court in london that year ruled that georgia indeed should pay the money back for georgian authorities but obviously didn't want to pay that money to any folks here believe that invitation is just a formality to put an end to this fifteen year old dispute now shortly before that visit in quite a read see a hotel room and turkey there was an unofficial meeting between. and georgian authorities and there they reached a verbal agreement after drinking lots of cognac. would receive only seventy two million dollars instead of ninety eight when george owed him but on one critical condition in return he gives seven million dollars back now the agreement was reached only one formality was allowed to come over to georgia shake hands with the prime minister and finalize the deal now minutes after that happened in front of
2:17 am
georgian t.v. cameras rony folks and his business associates were arrested the question is how do you combat a businessman who georgios that huge amount of cash and up in a d.c. prison now the lure of it was a trap. wisely set up by. himself there was in for a. cooperation a collaboration between four important ministries of the government and probably with the approval of the president of the ministry of finance the ministry of justice or the ministry of the interior and the prime minister's office all of which came together with the two intra broad issues fuchs was that informed through diplomatic channels that he would not be released until the arbitration award was waived now shortly after his business partner was over they were all for
2:18 am
it runs of what could be called a ransom was put on the table now georgia said that he could be released if you let me have the kilt and if he gave the money back but rooney folks refused to do either now we know that your agenda wants the world to believe that it's on a war against corruption and. personally wants to attract foreign investment into the country so of course here saved this one hundred million dollars obviously but the question is how much will he lose because now foreign investors will have to think twice before bringing money into this country or the controversial case may well deter other potential investors from doing business in the country that's according to cover of the conservative party of georgia. pryde know it's a signal not only for israel businessmen but also i think for european business groups or american business been paid if you are not being corrupted doing sweet jordan dorothy can you do business in georgia the same signal was the i think it
