the. we are being treated this time on the border where the grease used to love the syrian blood. for and your heart is become more heavily involved in this iran conflicts where the opposition pleasure to carry on fighting and a rejection of president assad's new peace plan. a war of words between britain and argentina but could it turn into a real war the u.k. prime minister says he is ready to fight to keep control over the falkland islands . and marking also christmas in russia and around the world as people park into churches and cathedrals for special celebrations.
and you saw in russia and around the world this is all see with me. and a very warm welcome to the program. they see we're in opposition and western leaders have rejected a peace plan proposed by president assad and instead they are again demanding that he should go in a raid to address bashar al assad offered a national dialogue and a constitutional referendum to end the nearly two years of a conflict that he pledged to continue fighting what he calls terrorist violence and urged foreign nations to stop funding his enemies assad's speech was punctuated with loud cheering for his supporters but his opponents dismissed the address as hypocritical political analyst marcus papadopoulos believes there are elements within the syrian opposition that will continue fighting despite any peace
proposals. it's very important to make this clear in particular to western audiences who are unfortunately not fed the full picture when it comes to syria the free syrian army is a lethal cocktail or various groups including many islamist groups and many groups linked to al qaida and the street free syrian army is of course backed by certain countries in the west and certain countries in the region and the free syrian army has been responsible for. terrorist acts in the last couple of years in syria but ultimately it's got to be america turkey saudi arabia qatar they've got to stop supporting the militants people who are ideologically speaking the same people who bought about the terrible attacks in new york washington and london madrid and bali . so questions have a reason even in western nations supporting the rebels as to who exactly is fighting in the syrian conflict ati's arena going to takes a look now at how the standoff with the trucks incompetence from beyond the
country's borders. she keeps her son's room exactly the way she left it last spring his clothes and art supplies are the only reminders she has of twenty one year old son. sami told his mother he was going to a conference in libya you couldn't stay more than one week to ten days he went in for the whole week that he stayed there he called home every day he called in the twenty second of march and said he's coming back to tunisia but never arrived at the beginning of april i got a skype call telling me my son was captured on the border as he was crossing from turkey to syria in a group of fighters. that further proof came with a syrian t.v. report in which sami was featured among the capture example fighters he talked about coming from tunisia to fight for the syrian people still explanation wasn't enough to please the minds of his parents if anything it made matters worse these simply can't understand how intimidating man can formed into
a jihadist notice how well they do have this. began and i was very happy because i'm a muslim and i thought it was a good thing. maybe after that he started going to a mosque and heard something that made. official reports claim some four hundred out of the five. controlled by radical islamists who call in their followers to take part in jihad in foreign countries. the exact number of tunisians fighting in syria or libya or iraq is not known but the families and friends of those who went off to fight in a foreign land are saying that even one death is already one too many especially for those who are fighting a foreign leader in a different country the government says that they're watching the situation closely but relatives of those who have died are not convinced they believe that the
government's silence is as good as a green light for the impressionable youngsters. i would like that although it's known that for the last ten years most terrorist groups have tunisians in their midst some a job in belgium others have been killed in afghanistan but we know that a great number of to millions have gone to syria recently and it's likely that the government was encouraging them to go by being silent about it know about these things but don't say anything these fighters went to libya then they went to syria by way of turkey we're talking about more than one hundred tunisians already killed in fighting in syria. this statement is supported by united nations human rights investigators this report published at the end of two thousand and twelve more of an increasing number of fighters pouring into syria investigator said people from at least twenty nine different countries are fighting alongside syrian rebels most of them are sunni's hailing from neighboring countries but some have come to syria
from this far away as america and europe they get called in for supposedly higher purpose but once they're on the ground the situation proves far more mundane. it's impossible for any arab cumbersome fighting in syria to be treated whoever gets injured dies i dare them to worry me a single arab who got injured and treated in a field hospital we are being treated as cannon fodder we are the grease used to syrian blood for them a city got to see despite his warnings many young men in tunisia still choose to go abroad to battle infidels in the name of allah it only goes go r.t. in tunisia. argentina has told the british foreign minister to make jobs not more in a robust response to his comments about the falkland islands david cameron said the u.k. military is ready to fight for the disputed territory sparking concerns there could be a repeat of the armed conflict between the two nations said he gives ago isaf that
has more. here with i asked this question in an interview whether britain would fight to keep the falkland islands and prime minister david cameron saying of course he would say he made his position there extremely clear if an attempt was made by argentina to retake the falkland islands that military treats would be the fly by birth and so absolutely very clear on that very strong rhetoric coming from the prime minister over that issue this comes on the back of argentina is president really making these accusations that the falkland islands were stolen from argentina by britain i think she called it a nineteenth century colonialism and i think some concern for people here today that you know this is something that is very much focused on in the course of the interview this is some of the strongest statements so disheartening a little bit some of the other very important issues that are happening on a national level at the moment here in the country we've got the cuts the trials that they're coming in this week it's cheese day that are going to the house of
commons so very important issues here at home at the moment of course a lot of people say we're talking about fighting a war somewhere else when it when actually was fighting our own battles here in the country on the remote screen nearly thirty years as we saw the end of the focus war it definitely has a very strong resonance with people here in britain that we seeing this result may kick off again as i said you have very strong comments from the president in argentina is also of course come in much more recent argument again because it's been discovered that there are large oil reserves of course i think that's really going to play a big part in seeing this contest over the islands to tween britain and argentina really heating up again it doesn't look like it's going away. and as david cameron's popularity at home is dropping some analysts say the renewed debate over the clint islands could be used to distract attention away from issues the government is failing to address. but david cameron it's
a great issue that it's come up again because the economy here is in dire straits and britain will stare and she is really biting people are very unhappy with what he's doing and so i think that they are and it's very much that this was about were to bring back the memories of nine hundred eighty two and the people's attentions here from the very popular things that he's doing at home but this issue to come up now is very timely because the government is well down of the opinion polls the government is really unpopular i can't recall it becoming so on popular so quickly and so i think that he will want to keep this in the news headlines species why he's reacted in such a sort of strong way. so lead he'll not see it's not only enemy fire taking its toll on u.s. troops but also mourning the sad that with the misery a war for so long when one american soldiers to take their lives. and violence has once again spread through the northern irish capital raising
the old free blog video for your media project free media r.t. dot com. welcome back this is egypt's muslim brotherhood is accused of illegally accepting hundreds of millions of dollars from the u.s. government before even coming to power a group of egyptian lawyers has triggered an investigation also saying that the brotherhood funded on cells that sparked violence at protests and yes let's say the hamas felt filed a complaint says that actually u.s. payments were all about preserving trust. we're going to start of this money might have been beneficial for both the american side promises support for the muslim brotherhood while they in turn promised to secure american interests in egypt namely a u.s. air force base in the province of. dealing with the brotherhood as
a political authority is permissible for funding it before it had even come to power is not we also believe that the brotherhood run cells tasked with provoking public unrest and violence and protests the former active member who quit the brotherhood spoke of such groups which carried out operations for the muslim brotherhood benefit if someone to suicide rate in the us has rocketed with the number of those taking their own lives now higher than those who perished so he's got an ashtray count finds out while the government trumpets its military success stories they come at a high price for individuals like so we're told tonight. oh another feel good moral boosting against the us president is the liberal many of those rockers trying to convince the american people that the war was worth it when you're missing a birthday or you're missing
a soccer game or or what you're missing out of verse three those of us back home are able to enjoy it because you. when soldiers come back home they missed much more than that their own selves when you go into combat you know what you kill people and what you spent a year and an environment you are not seeing first team kenny came back severely wounded from a tour in afghanistan two years ago having spent ten months in combat the vehicle on which he was a goner was blown up nine times when i got crushed by p.t.s.d. i mean. i was suicidal you know i mean but i'm married with four kids and i just couldn't find a way to kill myself and some kind of accident that my family wouldn't have to suffer. he was able to step this fellow servicemen were not so fortunate. more american soldiers committed suicide last year than were killed in active
service in afghanistan staggering statistics that's almost want to day when they were i think. i can't anymore. because they don't think america is. normal society. officials in washington seem to be trying to present afghanistan as a success story while for those coming home it looks anything but that. they do put lipstick on a pig or cancer to speak very clearly you're in. for the mainstream media in the u.s. with their everything military their questioning of the cause of the war usually comes down to this sort of makes you the most proud about what you've done here a mindset this test will be perpetuated that the ends justify the means while those ends are often identified in abstract terms like freedom and security what have we
done we've got quite a bit i mean honestly the afghan people even from when i was appointed in iraq and all three during the invasion you could see the iraqi people and the afghan people starting to do stuff on their own having more freedoms and stuff like that stuff like that also includes almost twenty thousand afghan civilian deaths and drug production which has gone through the roof since coalition troops have been in the country towns like this never make it to mainstream airwaves neither do major u.s. news channels dwell on the subject of the afghans overwhelming desire to see american troops out of their country instead another success story on t.v. but there was another war the war on terror continues to go somewhere else would you still go without it without a doubt yes these are paintings by all soldiers mother who was petrified her son would be deployed he never was and she counts her self lucky but the fear caught up with her and it's. these series of paintings are reflections on those who were
turned wounded physically or emotionally reflections that clash with the mindset that human suffering should be the price you have to pay for a cause in washington i'm going to check out. next hour as he's crosstalk guests try to figure out how u.s. policy is defined the perception of the west in general and all the term cold war means nowadays. with. a ditched france and switch to russia in iraq over time with many branding a traitor but some projects that movies stunt show roundup of jews only others will follow amid criticism that french policies are driving out this approach and my
colleague spoke to told us about the world's second most popular destination for migrants has to offer a new conference. let's look at the taxes and that's the question at hand right now if you look at russia at the current laws we have a flat tax rate here of thirteen percent in fact france and germany they both have complicated tax codes if you look at france forty one percent right now up to forty one percent in germany up to forty five percent as opposed to russia's thirteen percent but if this new law comes into effect in france that. market for france goes up to seventy five percent certainly that when it comes to the global meltdown that we've been seeing for years particularly twenty twelve was not a good year for the eurozone if a much of the world indeed but somehow russia managed to avoid the global economic crisis and that that is certainly the case in fact it is one of the brics countries which means it is one of the emerging markets in the world but if you look at what's been happening around europe in fact in the past year we've been seeing
austerity protests we've been seeing people come into the streets who are looking for jobs and in fact the unemployment rate's if you look at greece twenty six percent if you look at the e.u. in general the average there eleven percent if you look at the unemployment rate in russia only six point four percent the united nations that actually taken a moment to appraise russia's immigration policies that what's what's that about well certainly if you look at the numbers the most recent numbers in fact show that russia is the second most desirable country for immigrants to come to only second to the united states in fact in fact it can be a little bit confusing because people look at the numbers about moscow being one of the most expensive cities for ex-pats to live with that's for ex-pats and it is true things here it is a big city it can be expensive but if you look at average cost of food it's cheaper than the rest of europe much cheaper to live here for gas prices as well i think that the real reason people come here is that you get two christmases and you get two new years. and don't forget you can always share your opinion on debt but

in northern ireland hundreds have again clashed with police in belfast over the weekend in protest at the decision to fly the british flag only on designated days and that jason was from the christian science monitor things the conflicts driven by the funds that poor british protestants are losing ground to the growing catholic majority who mostly favor leaving the u.k. to form a united ireland. but hostess traditionally throughout its history been a predominantly at protestant unionists city and the latest census results show that's not really the case at any longer it's not slightly republican nationalist a majority or catholic were fair the decision itself to fly the flag only on seventeen designated daisy or taken on december third. reflects this change and that seems to be what's troubling loyalists rather than the flag itself because in fact flying the flag on designated day simply brings into line with other at

from a bird's eye view the oddly shaped triangle formed by moscow's kremlin could be seen as to heart of russia a small state within a state these red walls have been protecting moscow's kremlin for more than five centuries so to give you an idea of its size so we decided to actually go around it before going inside we have a start right here at the spassky tower so time you watch. the extent of the kremlin walls is over two kilometers and if you want to go around it you better go real fast because the winters in russia a really cold it's minus ten today.
