russian police officer suspected of organizing the crime. the civil war in libya rages on many say the country could go the way of egypt and up with a disillusioned society impatient for reform but some believe it could be much much worse laurent talks to newspaper editor. for his views on at the recent events. i'm talking to abdel bari atwan who's the editor of the london based on arabic newspaper al could be he is obviously going to talk to me about libya and he says that there's a huge potential for libya to turn into another afghanistan i missed out on thank you for talking to r.t. today now explain to me what the fact is all play all comparable between libya and afghanistan. there are a lot of similarities here between afghanistan and libya we have the need to
8:32 am
intervention military intervention it is true this intervention is not actually sending troops on the ground but the same. way or another and try to say libya could like afghanistan the other point is you know libya. could turn to a failed state like what happened in afghanistan nobody can predict what will happen after that we know if we would be removed from power because he cannot actually need police and he hasn't got backup abilities but the big question is you know whether that positional council which is that or presenting that will be able first to contain the differences divisions in its ranks second whether it is capable to run the country and to keep as a united state that seems like an excellent overview of the issues but let's talk
8:33 am
about the more specifically first of all where do you think gadhafi is that maybe what's he going to do you think you'll fight to the bitter end qaddafi is a very kind of despite to many people and their words you know describe him as a crazy mad i met him three times in my life he is you know i should politician whether we like it or not he calculates very well we don't know where he is actually hiding it took the need to under american fifteen years to find osama bin laden and kill him i don't know how many months how many weeks how many years you know it will take them to capture every nobody can kill where about he's hiding that he could be in. about ex military barracks in paper only he could be. his hometown he could be in the south where. you know his tribes actually situated so we don't know but definitely he's still alive and definitely used to
8:34 am
libya to for his son his sons actually to to be here to be in playfully itself i think this is a clear indication is that if you could be there it would be incredibly itself and as far as the mood on the ground goes what do you think will happen when and if the rebels catch him will they kill him will they they talk big about the international criminal court what do you think will happen it is a huge question is we don't know what will happen if he is captured we have a very bad experience when a better bill actually tried to capture. the human is the chief of staff of that he will army you know shoot him dead. and his bodyguards problems also so maybe the same thing could happen to get their feet we know that there is a you know a sense of revenge spreading that liberals and so it depends who is going to capture him if he is captured by fanatic. groups whether there are almost
8:35 am
he could be shot dead you mentioned gadhafi. is really his favorite son and was the heir apparent how much power do you think he will. still actually popular among the loyalist of his father and his father supporter actually so he is an important figure he knows how to communicate with the media itself he's still a very prominent character among khadafi interact. with that he has military power i don't believe so he has some political part but you know i don't believe that feeling will survive and i think the most he can actually try to negotiate for a safe exit for him for his family at the death is. presence or not libya is obviously particularly because up till now the rebels have really been united by
8:36 am
a common hate. how likely now do you think a violent splits in the transitional council is i think the problem after that post got there fair could be more actually problematic than the problem before or before the removal of very cheap because there is a huge slick split among the bills themselves and the factions who are participating in this fight. there are united by the hate to cut that free but if he's captured if he's killed i think you know now we will turn against each other and we know that some brigades you know who are fighting with their bills. by the extremist muslim groups. they wouldn't fight with the secular and the same time even belief used to talk to those secure those or to those actually liberals they consider. part of the western conspiracy so maybe those people will turn against
8:37 am
each other and also we knew that you know the majority of the people who are fighting muslim extremists or actually you know people who believe that they should slip mixtape and so how that the two is going to deal with those people after about a mobile of chemical are they going to legitimize them consider them illegitimate illegitimate after but part on the future libya so there are huge question marks here. personally i believe the post will be more problematic than that. david cameron has been talking about sending british troops to libya as a peacekeeping force but will that be enough to keep a lid on what is potentially a nation at war if david cameron sent. army. personnel on the banner of keeping peace in post gadhafi era this will
8:38 am
be seen in libya and also in the arab world as a foreign intervention exactly like what happened in afghanistan. and this would complicate the whole situation it could actually make some of those muslim extremists among the rebels to turn against the demonstration and council and also to turn against nato so now we are fighting troops after being finished his job actually they might turn against the british or french troops who will be sent to keep law and all that in and post get their fear i so it could be a huge mistake from from programs and from sarkozy to to actually send troops to leave the stakes are massive out there now nato and the u.k. specifically is talking about democracy by the libyan people how realistic do you think that is talking about democracy is very easy option actually practicing
8:39 am
democracy. it is a very complicated process democracy cannot actually parachuted to the people in iraq or an afghanistan democracy is a culture it is a huge process first you have to start this process in a country like libya you know for the last forty two years never had the you know multi-party system never had the parliament been ever had institutions democratic institutions or any institutions so to start the democratic process actually it will take a long time but it is very sweet talks about about democracy and we know that under the banner of democracy the west intervened in afghanistan in iraq look what happened for example in august we are going to celebrate that tenth anniversary of that invasion and occupation of afghanistan the worst now is our top. to true to reinstate taliban import in the beginning ten years ago they went there to remove
8:40 am
taliban from power. to destroy there and first lecture no way these you know there are throwing the poll there are talking to taliban and they want to have exit from afghanistan they lost or they are losing seven billion dollars a month the same thing in iraq you know now iraq is a completely different story and you know that democracy in iraq is very valuable democracy do you think the rebels basically sold off the oil when they accepted western military support there finitely the need to bombardment played a major role in the success of their able to capture most of the cities of leap year to advance toward tripoli so. presumably there was a deal struck between that and lead be unbearable that need to put it in and france in particular we know nato is not
8:41 am
a charitable organization we know britain and france there are looking for contacts for all the people of business in libya is destroyed completely undercut their fijian there is no infrastructure at all so i believe that libyan kick is very lucrative there you know that they want to share how much. business actually was agreed to by the council of council and they need to come that is especially britain france we don't know yet but definitely that nato is looking for a price and the libyan future government should pay and will pay a very heavy price for it is not. a free service you know definitely there is something behind that. i suspect that need to would like to have military bases in libya i suspect that you know british and french companies looking for exploration
8:42 am

gunning was the only real shock inflation south africa's first game will be against wales in wellington on september the eleventh springboks will then also face namibia fiji samoa and hosts new zealand in group d. which is a tough pool according to submit. your pretention challenging for games and hopefully you know with well it's it's probably a pull you can have to treat with but we. have really got to get some rest and not shift too much about namibia but i mean the risks that are going to be are going to put a move to challenge the very. serious history of pool sort of where you can see the flipbook one of the most appealing and you don't want to create a good result now i met a sports team red bull are leading the way in the formula one season and they have also paved the way to what will be the circuit of the americas next year because all zones and former driver david coulthard got back behind the wheel to test out the dirt track in texas and in just under fifteen months they be on the f one
8:53 am
calendar the circuit in the state capital of austin is set to host the last one race of the twenty two all season and it's hoped this will raise the profile of the high octane sport in america. now to a sport that has been played for thousands of years polo over the last century it all but faded out completely in russia but now it's being revived with help from sports historic powerhouse option tina but for the young has more. horses count among the most trusted friends of mankind in wildlife this is why polo is one of the most popular sports in this game was first played in persia more than two thousand years ago and has only slightly changed since then. it still takes the same skills to score goals with a long handled maillard on the field that's twice as big as a football pitch. the most important thing in polo is probably the so-called chemistry between the man and the horse they should be sympathetic to each other
8:54 am
also it's crucial to learn the equitation in childhood although even adult persons who come to the sport late can reach pretty good results in terms of training hard every day back at the turn of the twentieth century polo was quite a popular sport in russia but after the revolution the tradition was broken it was only brought back to life several years ago and the most cool pole club which was established in two thousand and six by exceeded dunker is now one of the major centers for the sport it also hosted the russian open championship which was being held for the sixth time you need a lot of players you need a lot of horses you need a lot of competition as in any sport you need to practice practice practice you need to invest invest invest and so far we're we're doing what we can but it's all private and it's all based on the enthusiasm of the players themselves and their money. in terms of price horses are like cars it's not only about how expensive it
8:55 am
is it's very important to choose the one that would suit you in this respect you should always take an expert's advice as for the price it may be from eight to ten thousand dollars saying argentina and up to five hundred thousand dollars at some auctions and i think the human resources are always a crucial factor in this respect fall in russia as a competitive advantage the traversal brothers to grandmasters from the sports powerhouse archon tina these time around glamorous russian fans of this elite sport have got unique opportunity to get up close with their known for a short masterclass on the secrets of polo and witness the rush. open finals where the tournaments top player and a hundred left his team beluga to victory. however there is still a lot to do to make russian pull competitive on the international arena is low now
8:56 am
because it's new it's a new sport here and we need a lot of work. and we need the people who have to know what is bordeaux because i love a bit it doesn't know what is. but i think he's improving. with a publishing deal with this he's possible to garner more people to play polo has never been only about winning and losing with another member of the winning team russia's top will look titian or me how you were. being the best proof of it is the economic pressure of my first the better you treat your horses the better they perform i don't care if i lose or win i just enjoy it it's a team sport and first of all it team here means the horse and the rider and that's the best thing about it. and that idiot which often leaves the fastest way to success. robert but in your own r.c. school region. and that's all the sports.
