on the back you're watching are you going to live from moscow here is a reminder of the top stories america's proxy war in syria u.s. intelligence has been given the go we have from president obama to back gravels their violent drive to overthrow the assad regime. wave of states aggression rolls over rising social movements in the gulf the latest victims the nine activists arrested in the united arab emirates. and join a sound as mother speaks out for her son personally urging the ecuadorian president to agree to the whistleblowers asylum. all next on our t. our interview with u.s. congressman dana rohrabacher with his criticisms of washington's foreign policy and
american double standards on china. we are sitting down congressman dana rohrbacher u.s. representative from california forty sixth district also a former official with president reagan's administration congressman thank you so much for sitting down with us i want to focus today on some foreign policy issues so let's start right away with china i know you've been a staunch critic of the way the u.s. relationship with china has evolved how would you rate that relationship today well we're giving our just rewards for having those stupid policy we have built china into a major economic power without demanding any type of political reforms we've given the most favored nation status one more free trade we permitted them to steal our technology they get away with murder quite literally economically or figures
or really economically but quite literally. you know in reality when they're murdering dissidents and taking the people really just dissenters like the falun gong and throwing them in the prison so what we've got is we've created a monster what was a very weak country before we are permitted to them to build into a massive economic power with the course are a lot of our own industrial leaders making a profit by doing that well i was just about to say you know along those lines china was only one of a handful of countries actually exempt from u.s. sanctions these are countries who were importing crude oil from iran china doing that but was exempt why is that why you know these policies how do they benefit the u.s. well i think it. is a horrible double standard that we have what. we have heaped on russia all kinds of
requirements and restrictions and mandates if they're going to get anything even if it's the repeal of jaxon van eyck which would have been twenty years ago which less most favored nation status. well china has had no liberalization at all and russia's had enormous liberalization their churches are full dowen you have opposition groups in opposition papers in russia you've got nothing like that in china whatsoever but let's be honest china has in many cases taken up the debt of the u.s. has come to lend it helping hand i'm always ready to mouth but also to be very aware that we bend over backwards for those people before they had our debt we have we are the ones who created them into an economic power and which they could. loan money back to the united states so it is there or there is a certain member of big business that in this country who have profited greatly by
the china trade the average working people have lost out greatly because the jobs that they should have in manufacturing have gone over to china and the technology that they paid for in their taxes the r. and d. has gone to china for free who specifically has benefited in this country well you've got some very big businesses of established manufacturing units in china and they do so thinking that they're going to go for my ten percent profit to a twenty percent profit well in the long run the the the people who own the stock it. lose out because the chinese confiscate some of the properties over there and our own working people because they lose manufacturing jobs and then there's maybe the c.e.o. puts a couple million dollars in his pocket as a bonus and then after a year or two faves away even though the long term result has been catastrophic for for his company what is your concern if these policies continue are you worried
that it could have a negative impact on the u.s. i think it to be a negative impact on the whole world to have the world's worst human rights abuse or which china is. to have enormous economic. power and thus transferring that to military power and i think you will find that china is becoming is already becoming much more aggressive than it was twenty years ago and i think you'll find that places whether it's russia will find for example that china will start making claims again to territories that were taken at the time of the czars from china china now claims all of the south china sea they claim huge areas in india that's the size of texas this is a regime that's made arrogant land claims and i might say frightening lying claim client land claims because if they try to move forward based on those claims all bs will come close to a war and i think russia and all the other countries surrounding china had
better start thinking about the future and realizing when as they gets more powerful it's going to become a much greater threat to them let's switch over to afghanistan i know you recently had a trip planned there president karzai i thought ah congressman rohrabacher is not welcome here what had you planned to do when you went and why do you think president hart i don't want to see you well president karzai is a stooge of the pakistanis all right he is their boy in afghanistan and by the way our state department. just kisses up the pakistanis it has been doing so for the last thirty years which is one of the major reasons we've had problems down there but isn't it that one of the major reasons that that the us needs to do that is to keep the borders open to be able to get you know the flow of goods to afghanistan where the troops you know my wife who wants to be in afghanistan i mean why should anybody the russians should understand how that that is
a rotten place for people to station their foreign troops. and they're not going to make any friends and the afghans traditionally when they open their eyes and they see foreign troop. around them they say i don't like them and i don't want them here in my country and. what we've got is afghanistan has been manipulated policy has been really really manipulated by pakistan and i think that my recognition that that the government this was a stablished after nine eleven and afghanistan does not reflect. the values of the afghan people themselves and so it's a totally different structure it's a centralized system where afghans demand more centralized authority in their village and tribal leaders and karzai of course has no basis support so as i'm pointing those things out and the fact that he's so tied into the pakistanis. cars
i don't want me around so he exercised is for argument though just to be clear you think that you the u.s. should not be in afghanistan at all i think that right now we should get our butts out of afghanistan as quickly as we can so that as few americans are lose their lives in afghanistan as it is. as much as possible you have some perspective on this i know that you you know when you worked with reagan back in the late and play eighty four in afghanistan against you or was over watching from russian t.v. i mean i i think that i was there with the mujahideen and where you also said the taliban wanted to form wanted to establish a disciplined moral society what happened. now that quote what happened was i was opposing the taliban every step of the way and the taliban were not the mujahideen who defeated the soviet union the the the taliban were creation of pakistan's
military intelligence so you can not support the taliban and never never but there's a couple two or three quotes that have come out. because i was opposing. and then it was a fait accompli they took over kabul and i tried to put. the most hopeful about clothes as they could be out for two or three weeks and then the back of the taliban started acting the way i always knew they would i depose them every step of the way they got power i tried to put the best face on it for a couple weeks but after that i went to work in the one nine hundred ninety s. creating the coalition against the taliban based on the king of afghanistan and what later became the northern alliance so all of this nonsense about quoting two interviews i did and was trying to be optimistic but it didn't turn out how things change certainly as far as afghanistan goes i mean you said that we should get our
butts out as fast as possible a lot of people are starting to be concerned that when if and when that happens there's just going to be a crazy ridiculous civil war that all the factions are already preparing us and reporting on this are ready preparing their training they're putting up weapons and then it's going to be back to you know the soviet. afghanistan and has a very. decentralized culture and decentralized system of power and they have ethics. groups that have lived next to one another for centuries and the think groups of know that they have to have be have arms because then they call them warlords but in fact what they are are armed ethnic leaders who protect their people from attacks from other ethnic groups that's why it's been for century after century after century so there's nothing wrong with these people having arms they always will that's their culture but what's happened is that you
have pakistan trying to working through an alliance with one ethnic group the push to trying to dominate all of afghanistan that's what the taliban were all about wintel are meant to go over cop. all thirty thousand of these quote taliban were actually pakistani troops dressed up as taleban and yeah if when the united states leaves the most important thing is that those people who have opposed the tele bomb are not left vulnerable and we can do that we can do that very easily could make sure that. we do not leave for example we can work with those in the northern alliance that defeated the taliban originally and make sure they can defend themselves all right congressman dana rohrabacher from california forty six that's jack thanks and that's right.

hello to all the ladies from the london games here nazi thanks for joining us this hour the headlines. hungry for gold rush claims diving and fencing but a little to talk paula finish for a second day in a. golden world record. hungary wins the men's two hundred mi to breaststroke with the fastest ever time. and most decorated british olympic thirty two year old cyclist bradley wiggins wins the men's time trial for his fourth olympics gold. but first russia's run of medals continues at the olympic games to silver and bronze to save on day five with all the details and. now russia's fences are just rattling their sabers at the moment they are winning
medals with them so fearfully kyra the latest she grabbed a silver in the women's individual event the second seed got through to the final but there she did lose to the korean kim gone who was the slight underdog but it is still a silver for the fences and the bronze they got in the men's individual saber earlier in the week while another silver came in dramatic fashion in the diving charnas pair of queen new young tong won the three meter synchronized springboard russia's years ahead of you can use nets of snatch silver under the nose of the americans a spectacular four and a half somersault tuck enough the second place meanwhile the cyclists all visible in sky is celebrating her second bronze of the games it came in the time trial which was won by american christine armstrong who retains her olympic title and germany's world champion judith lance got the silver was able to get on the podium just by two seconds and that is the second medal for her after she picked up
a bronze in the women's road race earlier in the week. but it was the first medal was the hardest to get the second one in the time trial was quite expected for me although it could have been better than bronze i'm a bit disappointed with the fact it wasn't gold but i'm still proud of myself that i gave my all at once and it paid off me more maria sharapova stays on course for the golden slam of tennis she has won all four majors and is just waiting for that limping title to complete the set she was through to the quarter finals after beating the germans to being the. also in the last stages fellow russian maria kirilenko although. able to add to the bronze she won in beijing she lost the serena williams and that is also act now it's rare that badminton makes the front pages but it has here at the london games because some players have been disqualified for trying to lose on purpose but it isn't all bad news because russia could benefit. to explain more here's richard with thursday's preview.
of bob minton is certainly not a sport the russians have much success with over the last few years however that could be about to change on thursday on day six of the london two thousand and twelve olympics as a women's doubles team of. a new no visa competes in the last four and of a minute managed to win backlash they will move through to the gold medal game however had a bit of help on the way as for the leading pairs from around the world two chinese teams one from indonesia one's from south korea were disqualified for not trying hard enough during their round robin games for russia sunday have a lot of success on the judo man's hands this competition so far with two golds and a bronze to show for their efforts so far and they'll be hoping to increase fan tally on thursday as a men's one hundred kilogram can't agree to a year high bely if he's competing as well as in
a winning seventy eight kilogram category that's where you'll be having efforts a time when a medal for russia as well or even a new front over the latest russians when judo made only one a bronze if you remember and this is what he had to say about russians going up on the first orange go and you know the reigning world champion currently the strongest one in his weight class because of course it's hard to make any predictions but he's been in his best shape recently so let's hope luck will be on his side of fencing has been love a sport where russia really excelled so far at these games and they've got every chance of adding to their medal haul on thursday as for women's team for oil will be competing in the team competition while they're the reigning world champions coming into this competition ranked this second just behind italians so is every chance there that they could at least try and battle out for a place on the podium if not a gold medal overshooting. same bed love to have the a success russia's fences of had they came into these games
a lot of hope and expectation was also very good shooters just haven't had a lot calmer side so far these games well the last person to be was the sharman and he missed out on a bronze medal in the playoffs really he lost to his qatari opponent so certainly will be looking for a bit more lock and heavy hoping for a bit more success and hopefully make beijing game balance in the means of double trap on thursday which will see the tally for kids and of asylum or soon competing and hopefully they can earn russia their first shooting medal of these two thousand and twelve olympic games in london. so after five days of competition if you do look at the medals table you will see that russia had two goals for silvers and five bronze medals not bad in the first week which traditionally is russia's weakest andry farmer in london.
well say in the british capital in women's basketball russia through to the playoffs that's after beating great britain in the third match of their group stage race a close case charges started the match in a poll where is they found themselves ten points behind the first quarter twelve to two but they recovered in the second going to eighty nine twenty seven ahead by half time the final quarter turned out to be pretty hectic but the russians held on to their advantage and claimed victory give me a billet call was a top scorer for the winners with twelve points. but it's now moved to the aquatic center in london where. another world record in swimming hungary's didn't. want to go in the maze two hundred metre breaststroke with a time of two minutes seven point two eight seconds that's three hundred ths faster than the previous world's best ever time in the event the great michael jamieson finished second for silver while japan's rated.
another world record also tumbled in their respective women's event rebecca soni blew away the field in the semifinals and previous fastest time to the american is now the red hot favorite to retain the title from bayji. over to cycling now where bradley wiggins has claimed gold in the men's time trial for it to a difference when needed fifteen minutes and thirty nine seconds to complete the forty four kilometer course that was forty two seconds faster than just one world champ into a martyr and another brit chris froome completed the pull to line up sixty eight seconds behind wiggins thirty two longer than is now great britain's most decorated olympian with seven levels one two and two branches. are never ever going to experience anything about that ever again in most books and career so. you know these last weeks with. i think i'm never going to talk to most boys in
green oh winning the school and coming back and winning one hundred one and beginnings and a fourth a big gold medal. you still can't think oh well you know but he's just. he's. a vodka tonic. now russia expected to dominate in all seven weight categories in wrestling in london while trying to improve on the beijing medal haul four years ago all three gold silver and one braun's and one course truth introduces the team. basically do go for one bronze in beijing in the fifty five kilogram class four years ago is the only one of the seven wrestlers making a second deliberate attempt this time though he will try his luck one step over his previous weight in the sixty kilograms addition jamaal of our soldano will defend the russian colors in the lightest fifty five k. division the three time european champion want to stick it to london by defeating
the world champion victor live if in the russian nationals. on to the sixty six kilogram class where a longo guy is certainly on a why of course after the twenty two year old won the most recent european championship and the russian title in st petersburg the gum petition for a place in london in the seventy four kilo category was widely considered the main event of the russian nationals in st petersburg featuring a clash between the sydney champion of downsides and suits on a world champion uprising and they did denise our wish despite his brother bo bice our support who is a three time olympic champion himself citee of lost even target the coveted place on the team and zorro to ship of russia's republic of alba jean o'boyle caria to wrestle in the eighty four kilogram class while that's once a twelve european and russian champion the salon that diesel will try to roll the match in the one hundred sixty loads of vision the super heavyweight category of one one it's going to take these years the explosive d'agostini build all model
