europeans concerned that strong economies are once again forced to pay for others to profit off the eurozone. and the fountains of women dying every year at the hands of violent husbands in russia lead to calls for a change in a lot to encourage those suffering in silence to come forward. this is aren't you coming to live from moscow i'm writing josh welcome to the program. the friendly fire of a nato airstrike is skilled at least five and a gadhafi rebel fighters alleviate some sources suggest it may have been dozens and that will only add to the criticism coming from the opposition who say the alliance is not doing enough to help them and for those countries who were pushing for this operation three weeks ago the very real chance of a stalemate looks likely to bring some grand ambitions crashing down daniel bushell
reports from france. france was among the first countries to push for a military solution in libya but now watch as a questioning its justification for going in france wants to get in on what i call the imperial condominium a really kind of africa already having long term connections on the continent paris called forgive colonel gadhafi for fighting its military it may bring chad in the 1980's and challenging its corporations in the region ever since the french did it a french quarter or is it a sarkozy see your way that he tried to convince the world that he's demanded. to be their leader of the g twenty. and also the way that he tried to survive in frost reports le pen by god was putting an invasion already last year
have prompted accusations of revived imperial ambitions calculated as a coach with france's president the move has backfired french foreign minister island paces the invasion could last days or weeks but months into its third week war in libya is turning up longer and harder and wanted to. sit with that peace force is still standing firm rebel games only come with the heavy had different nato helping the war in libya with both the food for interpreting feeds abroad congress or the government the popularity of power instead of the bombing continues oppositional both thaw it is growing these demonstrators say they see through for all these noble claims that they can claim humanitarian intervention but it's really empowering isn't it in local elections nicolas sarkozy got thumped his you had people to winning just knowing two hundred
percent of the folks the french president hoped for ratings lift from the board. he's got the opposite. because of. course it ends for ever for the last forty years given france's troubled history in the region many fierce countries be remembered they called the poles and humanoids against the former colonial. countries that have genuine revolutions genuine grazing and then being able to unite i think that is something which the imperial powers don't really want to see with trolls facing a growing backlash and the rule elite talk of a quick fix belt of. the new cultural sea powers a front line shifting forwards and back and control weapons traffic and chaotic allied airstrikes are just possibly your who is in tripoli has the latest developments on the ground in libya. major has denied responsibility for
a strike on an oil field in the south east of this country instated says it was gadhafi trying to sabotage oil supplies to the east imports city of two broke from where the rebels have begun exporting the first consignment of crude oil some one hundred million dollars to qatar now in a separate mater is trying is still confusion over what exactly happened but we hearing from doctors on the ground that at least five rebel fighters were killed and some twenty two were injured what seems to have happened very is that the rebel point is we're trying to advance with heavy weaponry when they came under attack by nato of a quickie retreated to the town of ajdabiya which was some seventy kilometers to the width of the rebel headquarters in benghazi and the two they were shelled now nato has not directly acknowledged responsibility for that is strike and for the casualties that have brought but it does say that the situation on the ground is extremely fluid but the frontline keep shifting plans are flowing forward and
backwards and that it's not clear what's actually happening the last few days have seen there where there's so no doubt that too has hampered nato operations here on the diplomatic front there is a proposal on the table from the turkish prime minister a road map for peace there does include the establishment of humanitarian corridors it would also see gadhafi removing his soldiers from some of the proceeds thirty's and implementation of some kind of democratic processes but we are hearing that the rebels have already rejected this proposal because they say nothing short of gadhafi slipping down and leaving this country would be acceptable. calloused from the eva times believes the coalition's actions and media are leading to stalemate. the nature of going on is nato incompetence number one ok you know what they want they want a colon of tanks of cut off the forces sit in the desert like sitting ducks so they can bomb them at will what kind of resources are going there disguising their
remaining tanks and armored personnel carriers inside or around the cities he's using guerilla against the guerrilla cleverest spencer going general strong to start the new this would be a stalemate the u.s. and the brits basically want to arm the rebels you know that could happen in effect is already happened they raided some arms depots eastern libya and this al qaeda related fringe areas in the already have surface to air missiles and b. so peace out of libya so it's probably somewhere in shot in central africa so this is already happening can imagine if these rebels are armed by the cia pentagon s.a.'s from britain and all that can be measured this is six months we're going to have mujahideen to suit. so as a foreign intervention in libya drags on the struggle to justify it gets tougher as you'll see on our cross-sectional coming your way later in the program today.
if there are regime is kids around here and their government as a whole is something that the whole entire wall does not have the word doesn't really want to have you have that if you rule so the world has actually moved and saved. lives if i may jump in here john john john if i was to go to you i mean if we look at recent memory you could ask he was being run out of the cold i think we recall but these arguments were exactly the same as we 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 that at the very line which. 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 government and the obvious one factor is that it's touring the middle east so the
weaponry to they want to go to the go to war isn't true but there's some sort of this embodied world community but he's backing this. the rescue operation for portugal's economy starting as e.u. ministers me to discuss a bailout package for the country however critics say that once again european taxpayers will have to tighten their belts to meet their belt and as john guy out of the e.u. referendum campaign told r.t. to heavily listing ship of the european economy could eventually be sunk by the eurozone. we don't have a duty to bail out portugal we did not achieve our island we made seven billion pounds worth of welfare cuts and then we gave seven billion for an island go figure that does not have and now spain is going to go the same way and our lousy coalition government will give the british people the right to have a vote and you know the reason they won't give us the vote because they know that seventy five percent of people in a recent e.u.
referendum campaign and congress poll say they want to get out of this expensive undemocratic well and the euro is going to crash and burn spain will follow portugal and i say not a penny 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 like the united kingdom or germany with somewhere like greece you know well the answer is you can't and it's failed and the sooner it collapses let's out we're 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 great people went out but whether we get the referendum law it's kind of becoming irrelevant because this currency is doomed the whole country parson sketch you know this
parity is to cities to cease fire is no more let me show you this currency is dead it is deceased is is it is extinct it can not survive spain will go next. and coming out it's not just europe that's in trouble. the u.s. debt problem is big fourteen trillion dollars big and meanwhile the solutions lawmakers are coming up with to solve this problem are small r t looks out of a gridlock as the u.s. tries to agree at twenty eleven budget read threads to its credit rating. every year thousands of women die as a result of domestic violence in russia even more decide to suffer in silence a lawyer say only a change the law allowing greater involvement in family life can help the victims. reports it was a cycle. we had he raised his hands it happened so many times
held on for as long as i could but when i realized then that i found out about the center where they help women took my child and ran to save my life. it wasn't this help center named ideas that were even i was finally able to cope with the scars left by years of emotional and physical abuse at the very thought of my child's witnessed and it's twice as hard for me to understand that i told them rated all of it i thought i was guilty for something that i've done something wrong. research conducted shows fourteen thousand women lose their lives to domestic violence in russia every year that means that every forty minutes a woman dies at hands of her husband tens of thousands more continue to suffer the abuse but the numbers are all the proximate because often the victims choose to stay silent about their quite. good thoughts as turco aspect is a plea here traditionally beatings weren't thought of as a problem between means loving as the old russian saying goes ninety percent of the
time women don't turn to authorities for help going to the police is viewed as betrayal by their husbands the woman is afraid to destroy the marriage whether it's because she can't provide for itself or for the sake of her children. unfortunately existing laws make it hard for victims of domestic abuse to get adequate protection . or we must change the legislation sort of big government to interfere with the personal rights of citizens in cases of domestic violence and superior times we had such laws and every individual has to be able to prove that he refused to go on the wrong it means many russian women choose to stay silent about aggression towards them sometimes until it's too late quality of school. what people sharing amateur video online often help bring stories into the light but
there are some foods including that of professional quality also available for our viewers to download at artie's privity a service whatever it takes to guard dramatic picture is of a. a drug sting in siberia world police seized a large stash of heroin and. a puppy that was found alive in a rubbish heap just days after suffering a life threatening injuries. and the u.s. republicans and democrats can overcome their differences on the spending cuts needed to agree a budget for two thousand and eleven but the proposal seems small fry in comparison to the nation's debt and the threats from grading agencies that could make paying for it a lot more expensive arches lauren lyster explains. while u.s.
lawmakers in washington baker over the budget and hurled blame across the aisle for the gridlock calling opposing colleagues relatively small that stream group of. who are an anchor dragging down the budget negotiation process. another group of decision makers has been weighing in on the to 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 has been warning for months that the u.s. debt could threaten that 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 and meanwhile the solutions lawmakers are coming up with to solve this problem are small this time any dot represents even the larger sixteen billion dollars in cuts republican lawmakers originally proposed meanwhile the u.s. government continues to spend a lot more than it takes in resulting in more than
a trillion dollars in budget deficit so with all of this there rating agencies as unsustainable and a concern and if that path the u.s. has been on for a while forty three cents of every dollar we spend this year. we've 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 it would be another crisis 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 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 i'm do your proposal 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 needing less money to spend it home then we have to start cutting really aggressively and for many things they're 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 and whether the u.s. would really be downgraded is up for debate the u.s. has the exorbitant privilege after all of 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 a situation that once would have been unthinkable lauren lyster r.t. washington d.c. . economist mike norman says fear mongering over a looming debt crisis in the u.s. is diverting the government's attention from what really needs to be done. 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 an impossibility the united states of america issues the u.s. dollar they could spend it in any amount that it was 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 whole unsold 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 transportation on alternative energy these are things we did in the past these are the things that created the real capital that was passed the world from generation to generation it's what made this country rich and it's exactly dipping or 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 is in a possibility and now some other headlines from around the world a violent aftershock measuring seven point one is shaking japan threatening a second nuclear plant i want to leak from fuel pools has been detected at the on a golf is silly and these pictures are from a yagi television offices in the city of sendai one of the worst hit areas from last month's huge quake and tsunami this latest aftershock injured over a hundred and ninety one. place. a mass has two of its members happened. by the latest israeli air strike on gaza comes after

a blaze of pomp and publicity. by has the story. there are memorials like these all over the world set up to honor all those and fought for their countries a sign of respect and remembrance but many of the veterans here in georgia feel that they have been completely forgotten captain davidson sansa went through the war and has in the 1980's and decorated officer he now has to survive just fifteen dollars a month 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 but they got old taken away in two thousand and five and i go by in two 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. the sort of 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. and 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 recalling a hunger strike they were simply sure. some were even arrested according to officials for refusing to comply with police orders and being under the influence of alcohol. 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 our government building. brings foreign dignitaries by to see it but it's a farce because in reality the veterans in georgia are dying of hunger poverty and nobody cares they are being fired from their jobs evicted from their homes before
the police came a break up our protest the president drove by he stopped his wind. 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 by reports of police violence and the georgian t.v. channel reported on the event but 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 if the political battles continue to rinse who've already sacrificed so much for a country that largely ignores them are being drawn into this war as we. can't you know serve our tea b.c. georgia a principle here in our tea and kareena will be here with the latest business for us in just a few months. her
