this is the artsy international news channel my name's kevin i would welcome to see if you just joined this it's now eleven pm here in moscow our top story france is one its nato allies and their campaign in libya could be doomed to failure unless ground troops are deployed to the country but that would be against the existing u.n. resolution and indeed the image of french soldiers marching off the war could be a fatal political blow for president nicolas sarkozy back home. reports. france is now fighting in three wars the first four states to go into libya the laws just force in ivory coast civil war and this just sent more troops to afghanistan but supports the french media and this is what you get the americans are responsible for the rising civilian death toll and there's no mention of the french contingency the locals welcomed their western liberators with open arms. we're being for propaganda beers no relationship to the truth we're told the
community is behind us but france just wants africa's resources. this reporter explains how the french government dictates national coverage you will basically follow our editorial line on foreign policy or you will not be invited or included to come back and ask questions or press conferences but we will not be cooperative with you when you seek interviews but if you turn to the internet the view of president sarkozy's policies a much more critical frige people are growing increasingly worried about their country being labeled as imperialist with little regard for its victims opposition to the war centers on the rising number of casualties and the damage it does to france's reputation activists say france's media coverage is one sided but the real story will eventually get through of the almost a decade of war in afghanistan news of the dozens of french soldiers and thousands
of civilians killed is finally hitting home born of god. although the media treated. quite positive. the invasion of iraq the biggest and she will rallies in history there were experts say libya could become soccer's easy raw and disappoints government's efforts the. current rules is also coming out of the new push to see paris. russia's foreign ministers also join the criticism of nato strategy in libya the alliance wants colonel gadhafi out it is supporting the rebels with a. circular process toppling that our fees not sanctioned by the united nations. the u.n. security council never change for regime change in libya or any other country the forces that are now using the security council resolution to justify regime change
are clearly violating the you would mandate. the opposition in libya is struggling to lift the weeks long siege by colonel gadhafi forces this thousands flee fighting in western cities figures from libya's transitional national council suggest ten thousand people have died since the beginning of the conflict and elsewhere in the arab world syria is lifting its nearly half a century old state of emergency giving into one of the main demands of the protesters earlier in the day security forces opened fire to disperse an anti-government demonstration in the country's third largest city this video data was taken of the streets of homes during heavy gunfire before dawn on tuesday human rights campaigners say movement two hundred people have died in the lethal crackdown since the demonstrations began all this comes as new disclosures the tape by wiki leaks suggest the u.s. has been secretly financing some syrian opposition intent on toppling president bashar al assad.
many share the opinion that washington is pursuing a larger goal than just regime change across the arab world. fish from the institute of world economy and international relations he told us at r.t. that he thought the uprisings are being instigated by washington to undermine china's influence in the region. ultimate goal of the region is to change. regimes even applying for instance you know regime. change the. egypt and how the contras they were quite quiet or world to the united states but no bombers administration wants to feel even more pliant regimes and this striation many countries including russia including china if it's true they feel the interest are being threatened because of these are going to be more a world of the united states and are not likely to fulfill. all the commitments to
talk about policy of china towards the whole situation china has always advocated noninvolvement policy but what we see now is a general change of china's policy china is going to play a more active role and as we see now americans are trying to remove chinese competition for mainly regions of the rules south asia middle east and africa not all the north africa but also central african region resources so china has quite a lot of options to. first of all of course march she was from china china is the major creditor of the united states and today the financial rating of elected states was changed has been changed so i guess that china for this quite a lot of levers still painful the situation both economic and political.
times correspondent per escobar spoke to be investigating the rivalry between the u.s. and china over africa he told me more governments will fall victim in this race for power. it goes way beyond libya in fact i'm working on a story at the moment fixing the pentagon against china this is the big story in africa for the next fifty years i would say it starts in the beginning of the two thousand creation of the african union gaddafi was a very important end in this mechanism it was a mechanism to give a political force to africa in terms of a better unified africa in terms of political decisions and not you know of course economic integration and then china started investing much more than he was investing two hundred ninety nine is for african at least thirty countries we have more than nine hundred projects all over africa and then came the reaction from the
pentagon two thousand and seven two thousand and eight with the african command which has just launched its first african war when they launched their tomahawks three weeks ago against i guess tripoli basically so this is the chess board and step into gunfire at african i guess the chinese investments. i will say at least fifty african governments and scrambling to see ok we're going to go down. so serve a purpose speaking to me a little earlier on the autopsy still ahead in the program kidnap tab on european a cash flow while the plane criticized over how chooses to spend its a seven billion euro aid budget. also come these men who fought for the country say they're now being neglected nords over pork coming up from georgia and.
