12:06 am
the situation in libya are cross-sectional here's. the fact that their regime is kids around here and their government as a whole is something that the whole entire war does not have the word doesn't really one they have they have that if you rule so the world has actually moved and saved lives if i may jump in here and john john john if i was to go to you i mean if we look at recent memory you could ask he was being brought out of the cold i think we call that these arguments were exactly the same as they are going to use for the invasion of afghanistan and iraq and nobody thinks that what we've got in either place is a model of democracy and the argument at the very language. is that this is a dissembling language to say that the world community there is no world community i'm a citizen in this country my country is at war a majority of people in the opinion poll don't want to be bombing libya our
12:07 am
government and the army's one factor is that it's touring the middle east so the weaponry to they want to go to the war to go to war isn't true but there is some sort of this embodied world community but he's backing this. portugal has asked for a bailout from the e.u. something that can carry a pasty one hundred twenty billion u.s. dollars priced out for europe the countries plea for help because those are greece and ireland and the fear of it means that spain will soon follow suit john gone's of the e.u. referendum campaign told r.t. that heavily listing share of the european economy could be sung by the eurozone. we don't have a duty to portugal we did not achieve our island we made seven billion pounds worth of welfare cuts and then we gave seven billion to ireland can't figure that does not and now spain is going to go the same way on our lousy coalition government well give the british people the right to have
12:08 am
a vote and you know the reason they won't give us their vote because they know that seventy five percent of people in a recent e.u. referendum campaign and congress poll said they want to get out of this expensive undemocratic and the euro is going to crash and burn spain will follow portugal and i say no perry to portugal not one single penny one single cent one single euro it's nothing to do with the united kingdom we want our country back thank goodness we never ever joined this madness how can you link the economy of an economic powerhouse while the united kingdom or germany with somewhere like greece should get no well the answer is you can't and it fails and the sooner it collapses let that sell for having a referendum on may the fifth on the alternative voting system that's not a referendum we need the referendum we need in our great country is it straight in or out should we stay or should we go should we say to you and the british people
12:09 am
want out but whether we get the referendum or it's kind of becoming irrelevant because this currency is doomed the old country python sketch you know this parrot is deceased deceased power is no more well let me say this currency is dead it is deceased is is it is extinct it can not survive spain will go next. and coming up it's not just europe bats and trouble. the u.s. debt problem is big fourteen trillion dollars big meanwhile the solutions lawmakers are coming up with to solve this problem are small. actually looks at the gridlock as the u.s. tries to twenty eleven budget and its roads to its credit rating. every year fourteen thousand women die as a result of domestic violence in russia even more decide to suffer in silence lawyers say only a change in a law allowing greater involvement in family lives but help the victims are reports

she cycle freely and. we had clients he raised his hands happened so many times i held on for as long as i could when i realized that it could end something that i found out about the center with the help women my child and ran to save my life. it was a this help center. where unit was finally able to cope with the scars left by years of emotional and physical abuse at the very thought are gone my child witnessed it all and it's twice as hard for me to understand that i told the rate at all that i thought i was guilty for something and they have done something wrong. research conducted by n.g.o.s shows fourteen thousand women lose their lives to the mystic wilds of russia every year that means that every four minutes one dies at hands of her husband tens of thousands more continue to suffer the abuse but the numbers are all approximate because often victims choose to stay silent about their plight.
12:11 am
as thorkell aspect is a plea here traditionally beatings one thought of as a problem beating means loving as they are all dressed in single ninety percent of the time women don't turn to authorities for help going to the police is used as a trail by their husbands the woman is afraid to destroy the marriage whether it's because she can't provide for herself or for the sake of her children. unfortunately existing laws make it hard for victims of domestic abuse to get adequate protection. we must change the legislation was it a big government may be able to interfere with the personal rights of citizens in cases of domestic violence in soviet times we had such laws but not every individual has to be able to prove they were wrong if it means many russian women truth to stay silent about aggression towards them sometimes until it's too late.

people sharing out of their video online often help bring stories into the light but there are some food in it including that of professional quality also available for our viewers to download artie's free video service whatever your taste. of god dramatic pictures of other drugs. in siberia where police seized a large staff of heroin and a puppy that was found alive on a rubbish heap just days after suffering life threatening injuries. in the u.s. republicans and democrats can overcome their differences on the spending cuts needed to agree of budget for two thousand and eleven by the proposals seem small fry in comparison to the nation's debt and the threats from the rating agencies
12:13 am
that would make paying for a lot more expensive arches lauren lyster explains. all u.s. lawmakers in washington big are over the budget and hurled blame across the aisle for the gridlock calling opposing colleagues relatively small that string group of india logs and warren i think are dragging down the budget negotiation process give me a brought another group of decision makers has been weighing in on the did be one of the country's top credit agencies telling the feds something has to get done on this debt ratings agency standard and poor and moody's have been warning for months that the u.s. debt could threaten the country's golden aaa credit rating telling investors in u.s. bonds essentially they may have to worry about getting paid the u.s. debt problem is big fourteen trillion dollars big while the solutions lawmakers are coming up with to solve this problem are small this tiny dot represents even the
12:14 am
larger sixteen billion dollars in cuts republican lawmakers originally proposed meanwhile the u.s. government each year continues to spend a lot more than it takes then resulting in more than a trillion dollars in budget deficit so with all of this there rating agencies see as unsustainable and a concern and it's the path the u.s. has been on for a while forty three cents of every dollar we spend this year. we borrowed against the future of our children continuing on this trajectory of borrowing and spending however would not be an option according to financial analysts if the u.s. was downgraded so what would happen but it would be another crisis economist max broad wolf says even putting the u.s. on official downgrade watch would be devastating it would create global shock waves in part because most models and understanding of the global investment landscape landscape take is their sort of central banker the u.s. ten year treasury bond as the risk free asset and if that asset goes from risk free
12:15 am
to risky for u.s. bond holders like central banks and investors all over the world so goes the stability of currency as just one example and so goes the low interest rate the u.s. pays to borrow money as it is the interest the u.s. pays on its debt is staggering it was one hundred eighty seven billion in two thousand and nine and i'm do you propose on it increases to eight hundred forty four billion that number would grow exponentially faster with a downgrade because the us would likely have to pay higher interest rates to borrow money meaning less money to spend at home than we have to start cutting really aggressively and for many things there are too important for americans really to to be able to agree to cut them right now drastic cuts in everything from energy to education to the military certainly and in dangers the u.s. position is an empire around the world being able to reach into every corner of the
12:16 am
earth yes absolutely and whether the u.s. would really be downgraded is up for debate the u.s. has the exorbitant privilege after all the printing dollars the global reserve currency to pay its global credit card bill the scarier scenario may be that the u.s. has even reached this point i think much more disturbing important by the fact that the u.s. financial situation already. possibly merits a downgrade i think she wasted it once would have been unthinkable perhaps a downgrade pretty well whether it happens or not lauren mr r. t. washington d.c. . economist mark norman says fears of a looming debt crisis in the u.s. are being overplayed and causing panic and the debate is that people have a misunderstanding of this they view the reality in a way which is mired in misconception and myth and this is this is pervasive from

the common person on the street all the way up to the highest levels of policy including our own president who goes out there publicly and says we are out of money that is in possibility the united states of america issues the u.s. dollar it could spend it in any amount that it was to with a nine percent unemployment rate and millions of people at a work and industrial capacity far below what our potential is and millions of on hold and sold homes and all this other excess capacity that we have what we should be doing is increasing demand and the way that we do that in an economy where most people are trying to cut back their dead is for the government to step in and stimulate demand by spending on infrastructure on education on health care on basic research and development on transportation on alternative energy these are things we did in the past these are the things that created the real capital that was passed along from generation to generation it's what made this country rich and
12:18 am
it's exactly the thing we're not doing now because we've been we've become sidetracked on this nonsensical issue of the government of the united states running out of money when it isn't a possibility. i was to look at some other stories from around the world the hamas government and gaza said that once a ceasefire with israel to prevent a further escalation of recent violence follows the latest exchange of fire between the sides in which five palestinians were killed and two israelis injured as well spotted the shelling of a bus with airstrikes ok there's been no official reaction from tel aviv to the ceasefire tam's. a major selling point for aftershock as strong. words for free before lights are places for the nuclear plant under fred to save one from a power supply there the facility was switched to emergency power sources to cool the reactors at the trouble for the plant however no irregularities were detected

12:20 am
that they have been completely forgotten captain very soon sansa went to war and highs in the one nine hundred ninety s. integrated officer he now has to survive just fifteen us dollars. so i don't get a pension now and i won't until i'm sixty five but will i live to see that money we used to have some sort of support the hospital the free treatment social benefits that they got all taken away in two thousand and five and i got fired into a thousand and three with no explanation whatsoever. lives in a house that he claims is unfit to live in yet to send his family away because he can't provide them with food. my house has no gas no running water i can't pay for any of it i can't get a job the only reason i'm still alive is because of my friends i live in what they can spare. and there he does not alone is like more and more veterans in georgia feel the lack of support from their government but when they try to draw attention

to it by calling a hunger strike they recently shot at the way some were even arrested according to officials for refusing to comply with police orders and being under the influence of alcohol who cause the most outrage among veterans and the international media was the fact those detained got slapped with a two hundred twenty five dollar fine not one of them has that kind of money. but government building. brings foreign dignitaries by to see it because of cost because in reality the veterans in georgia dying of hunger poverty and nobody cares they're being fired from their jobs if it did from their homes before the police came a break up are protesting the president drove by he stopped the load his window looked at us one hour later we were pushed out of the way like we were nothing but a dozen n.g.o.s and human rights groups demanded an official investigation into the

actions of the police even the u.s. ambassador to georgia officially stated he was disturbed her reports of police violence. georgian teach our reported on the event opposition parties were quick to make as much use of it as possible. it is essential the international community reacts strongly to what is happening with the georgian government and society i don't know the political battles continue and those that are ins who've already sacrificed so much for a country that largely ignores them are being drawn into this war as well. catherine as are about r t b.c. ga another business of eight with kareena stay with us. hello and welcome to our business all of them good to have you with me this hour the ruble has made steady gains against the dollar and the euro since the beginning of the hear the strong up oil price has added further it but just to its rise
