damascus flight was used to carry ammunition but the departure airport also saying the cargo was absolutely legal. hello and welcome to our team thank you for joining us this friday with me karen tara while the nobel peace prize has been awarded to the european union for its role in securing peace to the continent nobel committee says the accolade is meant to be encouragement to the union in difficult times norway the home of the prize is itself divided over membership and has twice refused it and then nationwide referendums stay tuned with our two for more on this decision we will be joined by host of the kaiser report next. the peace prize was conceived by
6:02 am
alfred nobel to foster fraternity between nations but as guy naja can now reports some recent winners have done more to fuel cult flicks around the world than to calm it. the decision on the nobel peace prize is often politically motivated for a simple reason it's mostly about war and peace and we know that it's those with power who can wage or stop wars but where there is politics there is room for argument here we have the nobel peace prize laureates from the last ten twelve years let's try and bring up some of those arguments kofi annan served as the u.n. secretary general from one thousand nine hundred seven to two thousand and six while in office is stood by the u.s. and supported the nato bombing of former yugoslavia essentially bypassing the u.n. security council the move set a precedent in the polls cold war war than in some sense paved the way for more unilateral interventions by the way as was the iraqi invasion so kofi annan
6:03 am
received his prize in two thousand and one another you unofficial on the list mohamed el baradei you were served as the head of the u.n. nuclear watchdog for more than a decade until two thousand and nine you received the peace prize in two thousand and five years later mr el baradei announced that he regretted his silence over the u.s. invasion of iraq in two thousand and three at that time the u.n. watchdog had no evidence of your iraq having weapons of mass destruction and many argued mr el baradei could have done more to stop the invasion on false grounds but he didn't back to our list several u.s. politicians among the awarded including president jimmy carter. from nine hundred seventy seven to nine hundred eighty want is peace prize in two thousand and two shocked those who remembered that ministration helped indonesia slaughter tens of thousands of people in east timor then there was al gore a presidential nominee who received the prize in two thousand and seven for raising
6:04 am
awareness on climate change there were some arguments about that when as well and in two thousand and nine the nobel peace prize went to president obama probably the most arguable choice of the prize committee because at that time he was on less than one year into his presidency he has just announced the surge in afghanistan yes he was pulling out if iraq but the deadline for withdrawal had already been set by the bush administration and it's worth noting that later the obama administration was working behind the scene to persuade the iraqi government to ask for a certain number of american troops to stay on but the iraqis didn't go forward so there was only one known american head of state on the list king de jong awarded in the year two thousand the former president of south korea contributed to easing tensions with north korea and to the economic progress of his country whatever arguments one may have with regards to each of those laureates the nobel peace committee doesn't have to explain their choice of process is known to be very
6:05 am
secretive and they wouldn't even say who the other nominees were until fifty years after the prize was awarded in washington. and while europe celebrates its peace prize award a new scandal is unfolding in the u.k. over the conduct of its troops in afghanistan seven british soldiers are only arrested in a hushed case involving the murder of an afghan man last year. and tension is in the air over the israeli love a known border has been lost says it sent a drone three hundred kilometers into israel's tightly guarded airspace a message that experts say could signal its readiness for war more on that coming up. a hot and hostile show from the two american vice presidential candidates as they faced each other for the first and only time.
6:06 am
your own or where your mom about more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change what there's old nobody is right i said i know this is a price i know we're under a lot of to rest to make up. but i think it will be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other well if you don't take it all four minutes it but where obama and romney remained courteous in their debate here it was all about making a point republican hopeful paul ryan attack to the democrats for the death of america's ambassador to libya citing security blunders incumbent vice president joe biden in turn called out his rivals double standards on taxes and eagerness to go to war abroad with accusations of lies dissent from ation and even ignorance flying they show that there is no love lost between republican and democrat but california state university professor paul sheldon foote says honesty was obviously not a priority after the first debate between obama and romney you political
6:07 am
cartoonists true picture i don't hear those fighting each other with their noses this is no different these been one other way to life throughout neither side would attack the other on things in which they were both rebel and that's why you have to pick these tiny little issues her example of biden was biden said correctly that. ryan had voted to acquit iraq and afghanistan wars on the credit card helping to cause the deficit is actually right he was right about that he didn't bother to say the democrats were. right and of course he's one of the ones who says it's going the way he did he says why total world domination by total military power. but at the same time you're going to want to say that iran was the world's leading supporter of but terrorism for example impacted america and saudi arabia one more terrorist organizations in the region than anybody else it's time for them to quit whining start you know that's what the american voters will the world. we return
6:08 am
now to our top story story of the nobel peace prize being awarded to the european union for more on the decision we're joined by host of the cause report max keiser . max thanks for joining us now and the e.u. has won for its role in uniting the continent but at a time of rising separatism and the economy in a slump how do you explain that well this is the rise of the machines this is a machine selection that chose a machine the e.u. is a tech knocker see governed by machines joined with the banking establishment to suck wealth from all of the citizens of the e.u. and send it to brussels as set it to the banks and set it to the world bank and the e.u. and the troika this is the rise of the machines this is the machine choice is as far as far sickle i mean they could have given this nobel prize to bill clinton's left testicle and it would have been more legitimate then then giving it to a technocratic monstrosity this is like giving the prize to frankenstein for being
6:09 am
the best monster created during the past twelve months where they go from here or they're going to give it to next i mean they're going to give it to a genetically modified seed in india where farmers are killing themselves by the thousands because of companies like monsanto give it two months out till next year nobel committee i mean your track record for giving this prize to warmongers of bank stars and corporate fascists is becoming quite impressive mag's well this award give any kind of economic boost to the union and sort of help it out of the pit that it's in. no absolutely not the european union all along they want to create a new super bank take the power from the e.c.b. run it out of brussels and impose a new debt for junk scheme rolling up all the toxic debt into a new super european central bank to impose more austerity and to kill for more money from the citizens the the direction that this is going is absolutely
6:10 am
catastrophic christine lagarde i'm sure she'll get the nobel prize next year for having caused another one hundred million people to go into poverty and another few you know one hundred people committing suicide let's give it to christine legarde she's she's a warmongering genocidal maniac give her the peace prize now how do we then balance the peace prize with the ease intervention in libya i mean e.u. members on the ground and in iraq and afghanistan and its support for the armed opposition all in syria how do you go about doing that look there's only one contender for the peace prize this year and that's julian a saunders the fact that he did not win this prize is will be in a tunnel stayman on the nobel committee no one has done more to push peace than julian astonished we should be getting this award from this committee the fact that they turn to a bunch of machines of technocrats in the e.u. is an embarrassment they should go back to making dynamite which is a nobel prize committee that's how they got started go back making dynamite and
6:11 am
forget about this peace prize your illegitimate even barrister selves just follow you commit suicide for a change is that of encouraging people in greece to commit suicide. max thank you host of the kaiser report there max kaiser with his thoughts. all right well i'll be back with more news in just a few moments to stay with our. it always amazes me the lengths that people go to for things that are pointless people camped out for a week waiting for a new i phone that will be archaic by next year when the next one comes out every black friday many but thankfully not all americans celebrate this holiest of shopping days by waiting outside of a wal-mart in the early morning to fight over trendy plastic gifts for their
6:12 am
children that they're too young to appreciate hey even i'm willing to sometimes wake up early in the morning to drive downtown and pay twenty five bucks for parking to watch a football game on rare occasions but just imagine a world where we actually were willing to wake up early and stand a big crowd for something say more important than some stupid gizmo or the sake of our favorite sports team just imagine iraq and that world would be here maybe standing around some protester collecting signatures won't do anything we can't be naive enough to think that big corporations will bow to ten people with signs bought spending days worshiping at the altar of the i phone it's certainly won't improve your country but that's just my opinion.
6:13 am
even in the movie years. it's never too late to start a. stream. when a bar or a live in ship. or become a. mission
6:14 am
. critical free storage. arrangement free. free. free. and free to be over for your media project a free media dog r.t. dot com. thank you for joining r.t. with me karen terrell cheyne out seven royal marines have been arrested in the u.k. over a murder in afghanistan last year the killing apparently happened after running gave them what they alone afghan man who was apparently in violation of the rules of combat for more on the arrest and the secrecy surrounding the case we have artie's
6:15 am
sarraf earth live in london sara so what can you tell us about these arrests. well there's very little in the way of details from the ministry of defense at the moment we know that seven marines have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of an afghan insurgent and this incident took place in helmand province in afghanistan last year now they're being questioned at the moment it's all they haven't yet being charged a system to suspicion of murder and it's sort of that investigation that was launched. the code of silence is very typical of most of the marines to break in now that investigated is going to be now carried out by the service just to and it's going to focus around the rules of engagement the treats operate under very very strict rules and if they get it wrong then they can be prosecuted now the ministry of defense been very clear that this is an insurgent but some of the questions that will be are around the rules of engagement will be what this person
6:16 am
did they drew praise the direct threat to the tree certainly as he said very dissolute in the way of detail a lot of questions that need to be answered at the made it a very very serious allegations indeed now it's not the first time british troops have been embroiled in a misconduct scandal is it. absolutely we were actually ceremonial sunday marking the eleven years since the south of the afghanistan war now going into this twelfth year one of the biggest issues that were raised there and you know there are afghan civilians who are there citizens who are talking to us and they're saying you know it's the fact that the coverage over this eleven years old still very disciplined the way of detail about you know what actually has occurred in the way some of these incidents that we're seeing the we're now finding out about it was in any of this as there are in a big issue is the fact that whilst we are very aware as we've reported one of the
6:17 am
streets killed and what their activities are we very rarely hear the names of the afghan civilians he's being killed today in the paper this story is on the seventh page of the morning free paper it's a very very small piece of the pulse in that you know as we said very dissimilar in the way of detail at the moment because this you know this isn't an isolated incident we've seen many incidents coming out from this particular force and how this province where the critics have been based you had a british soldier sent to jail for eighteen months at the end of last year to stabbing a ten year old afghan boy was he was drunk on vodka you know we've also seen incidents like the us sparking widespread protests of today but the koran in september this year we had a nato airstrike that killed eight when they eighty billion afghan women you know these types of incidents nothing to support the energies assertions that the troops are out there to support and protect the afghan civilians so i mean certainly it is
6:18 am
very very concerning and as we said this incident has come out because it's thought that that code of silence that marines had have has been broken so you know this is just one of the incidents that is actually making it three and that we're actually hearing about right now all right live from london there a shower for authorities correspondent thank you sara. damascus has lashed out at on car all over allegations that the syrian passenger jet intercepted by a turkey mid-flight carried a russian made to have munition syrian authorities along with the moscow airport that dispatched the flight maintain there was no legal cargo on board more on this now from artie's medina question of our. syria calls it turkey should allegations said that the syrian no plane was carrying on the mission and some other sort of military cargo was absolutely on true stressing that the plane was not carrying anything illegal so far the tricky side hasn't provided any out of
6:19 am
a dense proving this statement in response to see where accused turkey also piracy over the detention off its cleena late on wednesday meanwhile the russian airport representatives from where the plane a initially departed to damascus as south of the costumes and the security did not so find anything suspicious before the planes take off and now the documents coming from the airport have already been handed to officials for further inspection again of this incident took place at leeds on wednesday when having departed from one of the moscow airports syrian air passenger plane that was carrying thirty seven people on board was heading to damascus when as soon as it crossed the turkish border tricky style sixteen fighter jets forced the plane to a land and off through the search that lasted for more will then the ninth hour worse sex and later the people onboard of this plane completely poor and at times
6:20 am
to very aggressive attitude and treatment coming from the turkish security forces the plane's cargo was confiscated in only after we found the plane could continue its roots in syria claims that this turkey should be heaver get again proves its policy which is not aimed at keeping peace in the area according to mark allman professor of international relations for turkey's phil kent university the incident with the syrian plane as part of on cobbles proxy war against the assad regime. you know it's paraphrased show me the contents of the cargo hold of any large airplane and i'll find something in it to cause a diplomatic incident and i think this is in a sense or the government has done it is very hostile to the government in syria it is supporting the rebels it's allowing this the b.b.c. showed earlier this week large quantities of ammunition and rockets into ten questions which can also cause by the way if there was to enter syria from turkey and of course that confession had to be so people say is it wise is it right what
6:21 am
we are we as a conduit to warm side in a civil war when it's not be told here that it's just a war between democrats versus a dictator who's the worse of the problem or some of these weapons may already have found their way back into. terms of the leader of hezbollah has claimed responsibility for launching scouting drawn into israel during the weekend and vowed to send more according to the lebanese movement the unmanned craft to manage to reach sensitive locations including the dimona nuclear facility political analyst come along and says this means hezbollah is ready for war. the message to the israeli it's message to prime minister netanyahu has been like putting a lot of pressure on the obama administration to draw a lot of the rug lie in today i think has about a law cross one of those red line and then the other the israeli air space for the first he didn't say for the first time he said that it's not the first time and
6:22 am
probably would not be the last time i mean challenge israeli security after israel actually violated lebanese airspace in the last five six years so i think hezbollah was able actually to make make that issue very challenging for the prime minister of israel and actually wanted to send very strong message to the israeli that there are ready and capable and they have the means and the well to do what it takes if a war break out in a regional level. now to some other stories making headlines around the world eighteen people have been killed in a u.s. drone strike in the tribal area of pakistan the strike targeted a militant compound compound linked to the hakani terror network it's the second attack in as many days coming on the heels of a massive protest against american drone strikes in pakistan. and colorado
6:23 am
protesters have once again descended on top where square infuriated by the acquittal of mubarak loyalists a group of former officials has been charged with sending mounted armed men to forcibly break up demonstrations last year the protests have marred president morsi is forced hundred days in office with public outrage forcing him to remove the country's top prosecutor activists have called for more action on friday. let's cross to our business desk now marina how are investors reacting to europe's win of the nobel peace prize well i have to say as really change the picture at all i should say it's gotten even the worse let's not forget that this noble prize was where the one point two million dollars but i'm going to say that the european countries have spent around three and a half trillion euros to help the unions banking system stay afloat so if you do the math you'll see that this is not really helping that much and many analysts us
6:24 am
a sack of the same thing and we actually caught up with paul marceau from the bank loan barred all of the year and he shared his thoughts on the future of the european union. ultimately i think the eurozone will break i think will see a hardcore euro and then a sort of euro lighters i would term it the hardcore euro be largely germany and so therefore will be a proxy to which market will be comparatively strong and then you have a satellite group of comparatively weak currencies. and let's take a look at the international markets starting with the euro as i said that this is where she went from black to negative the footsie shattering over a quarter of a percent similarly with the direction of a little bit more they're all firms and drug makers are performing the worst in the session right now let's talk about greece because every second young person in greece is failing to find a job as the jobless rate there it's record twenty five percent for the month of july one point three million greeks for an employer that month more than one thousand jobs have been cut every single day over the past year of course suffer
6:25 am
serious measures are likely to push the country into another year of recession and the jobless rate could rise even further and currency rates the euro is still managing to strengthen against the u.s. dollar when it comes to the ruble it continues to gain against the currency basket this hour moving on to the russian markets have been tracking losses overseas i want to talk about losses in particular asia and the wall street overnight and of course we know that europe is not the very well either with the r t s and m i six are approaching one percent in the red and then let's talk about oil because we have a very important story here that has to do with roles that process oil giant which is looking to help local african companies build a gas pipeline from zimbabwe to mozambique the project is being reviewed by engineers and all the documents should be ready in time for the new year holidays the pipeline could be as long as seven hundred kilometers and cost around seven hundred million dollars and also wants to build an oil storage terminal and
6:26 am
zimbabwe. and that's not all it's this hour kerry all right thank you so much marina in a few minutes all artes laura smith interviews daniel hannan member of the european parliament who condemns that use undemocratic structure and blames euro kratz for showing no respect to voters. in japan the average height for men is one hundred eighty two centimeters ten centimeters shorter because of that some employers refused to hire me one of them even told me directly that i was too short to deal with the client's computers already spent three months in this hospital and plans to stay for another four to add the coveted seven santa majors to his stature invented by the famed soviet orthopedic is good for you is there a from the nineteen fifties these frames were initially used to treat fractures in deformities by cutting bones and slowly pulling them up or therefore stimulating tissue regeneration it was out of was able to receive arms and legs and people who
6:27 am
thought they were crippled for life be sent to the other patients. and their shattered lives will go when professor of design his first brain bicycle parts sixty years later he says invention is increasingly being used to help people quite eager to fracture their legs to become a few centimeters taller than the ultimate goal is still the same six thing somebody is live both literally and figuratively about a third of patients admitted to be always out of center nowadays seeking series three focus medical reasons most of them a man and most are not what you would call vertically challenged professor novick of who operated on many of them says it usually comes down to a man's pride some of the first patient to turn to us with a leg length i mean a quest to meet his fifteen centimeters to still want to surgery because panos tool
6:28 am
than him we like to say that we need to break their legs in order to fix their head maybe nothing wrong with them from an orthopedic point of view but there is something psychological that prevents them from living their lives fully being happy and we fix it like lengthening surgeries are banned in many countries and even the women allowed their press. expansive in russia the entire course costs eleven thousand dollars about one tenth of the similar package in the united states financial considerations for one of the reasons that brought this washington state native to western siberia his main motive for the surgery had to do with how he fared in the others in america advertised as one seventy five i was one sixty seven or one sixty eight and so one eight centimeters would have brought me right to average thirty one of the average for women height isn't so important you know i think girl can be short and it's not a big deal why do you guys it's like expect to be taller just before the operation
6:29 am
most mad a russian girl who found he's a regional hide quite endearing yet he still want to have a jury adding seven more centimeters to the self-confidence she told me the whole time you're crazy you're normal you're perfect. so now or should i call you so what a compliment for somebody who's used to falling short of his own expectations. today i'm talking to daniel a conservative member of the european parliament he's about to bring his euro skepticism to the hot of brussels mr howe thanks for talking to us now apparently doing the rounds in brussels is a popular which says that if the european you.
