10:01 am
and spain hitting record unemployment. we look at how the upcoming presidential election in america could determine an attack on iran action that america's ally israel is increasingly pressing for. live from moscow with twenty four hour world news this is are with me wrong. libyan forces are now using foreign mercenaries and they were sold on the town of bani walid the traditional stronghold of the toppled khadafi regime it's all according to sources who spoke exclusively to us here at r t a deadly siege is said to be turning more violent just days after washington objected to a u.n. call for a peaceful solution in the region artie's poorness. while fighting continues in the perceived libyan city of baghdad where it has been on the go for more than three
10:02 am
weeks now we are beginning however to hear disturbing reports that a foreigner troops and snipers could be used in the assault on the city. they told something dangerous that. the sniper is the flood or not the new t.v. and maybe if it got out of room somewhere inside the city today to look to fit into this a bit you know and. now earlier in the week they were completely. reports that the city had fallen these reports have proven untrue but not before thousands of residents try to make their way back to the city now we are hearing from our sources on the ground that these people have been stopped by roadblocks that have been set up by militias at the entrances and exits to the city that there has been firing in the air widescale panic and that now thousands of people are on the desert highway in addition to this our sources tell us better continues to be
10:03 am
armed gangs and militia in the streets and are ransacking people's homes we're hearing reports of homes being bulldozed of homes being looted and we continue to hear these reports over the at the moment and verified of the use of chemical weaponry i can confirm that these militias used internationally prohibited weapons they used phosphorous bombs and nerve gas we have documented all these in videos recorded the missiles they used on the wide transfers raining down from these missiles many people died without being wounded shot they died as a result of gases the world needs to see who are they targeting other really good doctors men other children women and old men killed his men the united states state department was questioned by our team in terms of why the story is being ignored in the way it's done their answer was that they're not ignoring the story they are following it but you only need to take a look at the u.s. state department website and see that the last time it was mentioned was back at
10:04 am
the beginning of the year we support the efforts of the libyan government to get control of militias and to provide security throughout the country including in bani walid and to do so in a way that. is respectful of the human rights of all citizens and allows humanitarian organizations to get in so we or watching the situation very closely now the libyan army was given the order. to use all means necessary to deal with the subtle and certainly what we're witnessing is that all means necessary are being employed to all parasites or leeches the masses to all of them across libya wherever they are whoever you are and however strong you are and who are your backers are the revolution should win for them also we hear from our sources both within the setting and elsewhere in europe and north africa people who have family
10:05 am
inside the city that the killings are far from over. well meantime author and journalist neil clark believes the worsening humanitarian situation in bani walid is an inconvenient truth for those who threw their weight behind last year's armed revolt in libya let's think back to every twenty eleven we couldn't because the newspaper in the u.k. or us or put on the b.b.c. or c.n.n. without hearing about what was going on in libya a humanitarian disaster or a hole colonel gadhafi forces were killing lots of people they were going to have a massive massacre in benghazi and because of that we went to war that that was a reasonable war and today the situation leverage much worse you've got a humanitarian catastrophe taken place the number of people killed since needing to been has gone up but by between ten and twenty times we've got massacres going on at the moment and their silence complete silence here in the u.k. and in the u.s. they got what they want what they wanted they got rid of gadhafi they've got a crow western government in power now in tripoli they've taken control of the oil industry this privatization western corporations really you know they don't really
10:06 am
give a toss to be honest about what's going on about about human rights abuses the fact that demonstrations are banned throughout the country it's time to move on on to syria of course. this is r.t. new cases of violence have been reported in syria despite a four day truce between the army and rebels coming into force marking the muslim holiday of aid that's however according to opposition activists of the ceasefire has also seen a rare agreement at the un security council over syria with its members it unanimously calling on regional and international powers to use their influence on all warring parties let's not infringe on us robert harness has been keeping a close watch on developments in and around the troubled country it's a pleasure to see you today russia has repeatedly accused the u.s. and its allies of not using their influence over the syrian opposition to lay down
10:07 am
its arms is there possibly a lack of impartiality to this conflict when it comes to outside influence certainly has. what you reports from the united nations is certainly a change and encouraging how sincere the western powers are of course is another matter they are beginning to realize that what they're doing in syria because it's taken so long and been so messy and unsuccessful is beginning to make them look very bad indeed i don't think there's any doubt that the west if ever they have done are losing the argument the intellectual argument in this case they're beginning to look very shoddy they're leaving to look as if all they're interested in these oil and power and it doesn't matter how many syrians get killed eventually it sinks into the to the political leaders that this actually doesn't make them very good look very good in the domestically eventually people are going to notice so they start moving a little in the security council but how sincere they are i seriously question well let's let's address the issue of the al qaeda link to al nusra front fighting on
10:08 am
the side of the rebels it announced two days ago it would not abide by the terms of the cease fire of a do you think the actions of one group could ultimately threaten to jeopardize the entire agreement well the fact is that the anti. government forces most of them except. apparently agree to a cease fire is encouraging it's a sign that they realize it's in their interest because of course you have to realize in these situations nobody ever agrees to a cease fire and i say think they're going to benefit from it and that i'm afraid goes for the syrian government as well probably because they wish to be seen to be reasonable but what happens in ceasefire is you've got to remember is that everybody gets restocks ammunition. for the acts trash the fight the judge. said that they wouldn't agree to anyway of course makes them look in the eyes of the extremists makes them look good they are on their own i think would not be capable of recognize cease fire but one has to wonder how sincere the
10:09 am
anti-government forces are and then of course the government forces themselves said that they would agree to a cease fire whether they would react if anybody did anything this of course means all you have to do is log a few grenades about and get a few snipers going and it's business as usual but on the other hand also i'm sort of jumping it just for fun to apologize but is it fair do you think that the west is already claiming the assad regime will fail to stick to the cease fire and when we have a rebel group refusing to take part in the first place well absolutely but then we we here have become totally hardened to this constant anti syrians in everything that happens is the fault of the syrian government it doesn't matter as a bomb going off in love and what it is is always the fault of the syrians and it's tragic that the western media has so lamb and sadly failed to put a balanced view of what is going on and what i'm running low on time here that's one question i get out here one of the issues is certainly some people say the regards to syria what's the point of western nations getting involved some talk
10:10 am
about the geo strategic usefulness of syria here we are two weeks out of the u.s. presidential election there's a lot of war rhetoric and saber rattling going on against iran is a possible do you think that getting a foothold in syria could be a crucial first step. washington and tel aviv before israel in gauges iran. i think if they could have knocked syria out if they could have been there for a split syria which is what they talk about under bush they would have their position against iran would have been much stronger but my own view is that they messed it up they failed and that iran is not going to let syria go down neither is russia for that matter and so therefore the plan to use syria against iran has failed but its course that was the intention you you knock out syria you knock out one of the props of iran independent journalist or robot harness or joining us live on r t a great pleasure thank you. for the iranian opposition has
10:11 am
a new voice this on the airwaves of a london based t.v. channel the founder of iraq t.v. a businessman and leader of an anti government movement says its primary goal is regime change in tehran by the launch came on the heels of a ban on more than a dozen state run iranian t.v. and radio straightens all across the e.u. taking up the story now artie's party boy. in london we went to the launch of a brand new and very different iranian news channel this studio belongs to t.v. now from foss the rocket translates to freedom and that could give an indication of the political agenda behind the new t.v. station in fact its founder is so very opposed to the current government that he says that he wants to help the iranian people to capitated the current regime he denies having any financial backing or any seal of approval from international
10:12 am
organizations or western governments cannot believe. that the british government back. to the regime can be a t.v. for the change of dictatorship. they want to put this regime on the news in fact the very emergence of a new oppositional iranian television channel in britain teamed with involuntary departure of press t.v. from the u.k. that's led some to question whether the brits with all their love of trumpeting free speech and balance are doing so very selectively obviously. very early on the first country in the world that. television news channel there are only. a propaganda channel as it were the one percent does no one in iran even those opposed to. even those opposed to do it islamic theocracy. would support
10:13 am
this out of t.v. its founders say that they're inspired by the arab spring and television channels like al-jazeera and al-arabiya in fact they say that unlike in libya and afghanistan they want to promote political change from within and looks like perhaps because of their oppositional political agenda nobody here is stopping them . london. no surprise that sauron has come between the u.s. presidential candidates. iran should not obtain a nuclear weapon iran may not have a nuclear weapon and israel continues to push washington to back action against iran obama and romney on all that far apart on the issue in the pre-vote campaign and more on that certainly and other stories after a short break. nineteen
10:14 am
iranian channels have been banned in the countries that's called iran for not tolerating free speech among other things well played lads well played i love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning personally a bit of censorship doesn't bother me that much because there has always been censorship and there were always be censorship if there are any words or symbols or opinions that could get you bumped off the air or legal trouble in your country then guess what you have censorship sorry to say it but that's how it is i don't mind a country saying that there is something so antithetical to their way of life that it must be banned i'm fine with that that's your business in your country and you should be able to protect your culture and your values but the light in me and tell me that you live censorship free when you don't it's your choice you let your reading channels back on the air or come out of the closet and admit you believe in
10:15 am
restricted speech but that's just my opinion. the issue is that so much given to you to be sitting on the market living in a tricky and dangerous neighborhood this is long been let in on state the assassination of the country's top security official and the political. want to lies ahead for. will the movement mobilize cools for a new american who stands for the ninety nine percent u.s. election a close go. to twenty ninth on r.t.e. . it's.
10:16 am

10:17 am
approved by european union leaders these day ego were designed to tackle the debt crisis that german chancellor angela merkel described as europe's worst economic crisis since the end of world war two e.u. has spent months hammering this package out and eventually it was proclaimed and it was hoped to first save greece by a write in of how awful for its that which amounted to that at that time again to one hundred sixty percent of the country's g.d.p. and the second aim of this package was to protect other european countries from this financial instability too and for that purpose it was decided to a more than double the european union bailout fund also known as europe. financial stability facility we've been hearing skepticism already than but a year later it's clear that not only has the crisis is not drawn back but also the european financial climate has more certainty with more and more countries now
10:18 am
joining greece and experiencing financial economic fallout likes a call to go. for national reporting in the meantime. zimmer says e.u. leaders are putting the interests of the people at the bottom of their list in a strategy that really must be challenged. one hundred twenty million people of the european union are living in poverty or and socially excluded that is not a good sign not a good symbol for a european union which was not by as a noble peace prize if we are not able to ensure social peace in the european union it's not a good sign it's not a good some of. the people on the contrary our door for situation if you if you use the same. reason for surprises you for you have to find methods at this hour here on our to discuss the e.u. woes with a man known as the guru of the crisis but also just ahead for you. all those they'd
10:19 am
be looking at a one year on i'll be checking out the global x.e. market where young and have expert analysis from banks a bank naming it groundhog day join me in about ten minutes time. now though israel's calls to bomb iran have stoked the u.s. presidential debate making support for television for a tough issue for both candidates as artie's guy nature can explains president obama his rival romney and are walking a tightrope with less than two weeks left until the big election day a road alone should be drawn right here the line beyond which lies war with iran. many thought benjamin netanyahu was message at the u.n. general assembly this fall was addressed not so much to the international community but to washington netanyahu would like to be able to communicate to the world that . the israelis are ready which he has to attack and that it will be done with the
10:20 am
full support of the united states and he's not getting there the tension in the media peaked when president obama practically referred to is world's warmongering as noise that he's trying to block out any pressure that i feel empowered to do what's right for the american people and i am going to block out any noise that's out there pledging full and unconditional support for israel is part of any presidential election campaign in the u.s. the possibility of war with iran needs a new dimension to this election season the israelis will attack the iranians they will attack it's just a matter of when so americans must decide which presidential candidate can better manage the situation despite campaign big president obama has thrown allies like israel under the bus the last debate on foreign policy has shown the candidates hold almost identical views on the issue what if the prime minister of israel
10:21 am
called you on the fall and said our bombers are on the way we're going to bomb iraq what do you bob is let's not go into hypotheticals of that nature had our relationship with israel my relationship with the prime minister of israel is such that we would not get a call saying our bombers are on the way what i've sent young men and women into harm's way i always understand that that is the last resort not the first resort of course a military action is the last resort as far as red lines for iran i understand and share this or not you know who's insistence that iran should not obtain a nuclear weapon my red line is iran may not have a nuclear weapon iran is a nuclear nation is unacceptable the united states president obama said exactly the same thing. twenty nine standing ovations to these really prime minister's speech before congress among other things showed just. how powerful these really lobby is
10:22 am
in washington despite president obama's support of a two state solution for israel and the palestinians his party members at their convention this fall called for moving the capital of israel from tel aviv to jerusalem it remains evident that there is no daylight between the two parties of israel obama was the guy who gave the impression with his cairo speech and others that he was willing to begin to renegotiate america's policy. on israel and palestine but in fact when he came down to hard political realities has backed off but will he back off when israel decides to attack iran whoever is elected as america's next president will have to walk on the same razor blade which is between its rope that is itching to bomb iran and the american people who don't want another costly and devastating war based on phony red lines in washington i'm going to check on. well the other u.s. presidential candidates will have their second debate next tuesday sharing more
10:23 am
