2:01 pm
hello good evening this is r.t. from moscow is kevin owen here at h.q. tonight ten pm in moscow it's also ten pm in some petersburg as well and that's where u.s. president barack obama has been struggling to gather international support for strikes against syria the issue divided world leaders indeed at the g. twenty summit which is just earlier this evening drawing to a close and some petersburg will bring a full coverage from russia's northern capital of them. she tried to shoot you and some predisposed with the latest updates what's been happening at this a two day event as i say is drawing to a close now but there's been an awful lot talked about. kevin that's absolutely right there has been awful talk about certainly on a day to hear the g twenty has some petersburg you continue our live coverage for
2:02 pm
you here this wrapping up the g twenty for twenty thirteen last year mexico city was to host next year australia will carry the torch for the three g. twenty but this right here the fifth anniversary of the global economic forum right here in st petersburg it has been a busy day as kevin was saying just a moment ago the american president barack obama struggling to gain support for some type of military strike against syria what we've all tamale seen here over the past forty eight hours at the g. twenty summit is ultimately a snowballing avalanche effect or a surge of opposition to any type of unilateral perhaps bilateral if indeed france gets involved some sort of a bilateral intervention in syria the pope he was costing his two cents he actually dispassion a letter of urgency pope john says did to the delegates here the g twenty saying you must not allow a strike against syria the u.n. chief ban ki-moon echoing the same words the u.n. mediated through syria. also echoing the same sentiment but why am i giving you
2:03 pm
these details when i can cross over to aussie's and he said no way she filed this report about the rough up to the twenty thirteen g. twenty economic summit or bowling operation but was meant to be a two day summit focusing on how to revive the global economy how to reverse economic global downturn turned into a two day debate on syria that's putting it lightly almost all of the round tables the discussions the bilateral meetings in one way or another came down to syria and whether or not a u.s. strike on up. damascus was in fact something that they should support a lot of different views here president putin sacked down with obama despite speculation that the two won't meet and it has to be said their views not only of the chemical weapons attack back in august but in how to deal with syria as a whole couldn't be more opposing. i was elected to end wars not start a u.s.
2:04 pm
military intervention in syria dominated talks at the g twenty but if obama was looking to gather overwhelming support at the summit he didn't get it in st petersburg. so who should see if. there is no military. we will not participate in military action aside from france turkey and saudi arabia a few countries expressed outright support for obama's proposal of a military strike in a joint statement they condemned the use of chemical weapons blaming the office of government and called for some kind of response but they stopped short of backing a u.s. attack on syria summit host president putin accused the rebels of being behind a chemical weapons attack near damascus in august that he says was carried out to discredit syrian authorities in the eyes of the west just as. i view everything that happened with the so-called use of chemical weapons in syria
2:05 pm
as a provocation by the rebels who count on help from abroad from those countries that originally supported them that's the reason for this provocation i also want to remind you that the use of force against a sovereign state is acceptable only if it's done for self-defense and we know that syria hasn't attacked the u.s. and only if the un security council approves such action as one of the participants of our discussions on the issue put it yesterday those who do otherwise put themselves above the law. obama continues to insist also it was behind the attack and he won't wait for the u.n. to respond be assad's regime brazen use of chemical weapons isn't just a syrian tragedy it's a threat to global peace and security the u.s. president is due to address the american public on tuesday and try to make his best argument for an attack on syria one that failed to convince global partners at the g twenty just to give you a better idea of who exactly is opposed to military action in syria along with
2:06 pm
russia you have china india indonesia argentina brazil south africa other countries' economies of the g twenty did sign a joint statement condemning the attacks back in august they do believe that also it was behind it and the joint communique goes as far to really hand that they also support these countries bypassing the u.n. role russia and many other partners here think that's a very dangerous precedent that's going to be set up and what will happen then to smaller countries what will happen with north korea how will they see this kind of a brazen overstepping of international law what kind of precedent will that set up in terms of trying to convince north korea per se to get rid of their nuclear program so very hot debate here over the past two days but it should be said that leaders are leaving st petersburg with no kind of solution on how to move forward with syria. and he said now right there at the convention center here in some
2:07 pm
petersburg constantine palace for the g. twenty summit let's go let's bring in a christopher bambery chris bambery now a political analyst joining us live from london to try and talk about this a bit further here regarding the big elephant in the room that of syria dominating the talks are the g twenty summit chris hyatt's rorion some petersburg i hope you can hear me ok i was going to ask you why the g. twenty is failed to find consensus on syria but i'd rather ask you what's washington's true motivations here for two days now analysts have been telling me it's got nothing to do with chemical weapons it's all about a change of balance in the region. i think it is about a change of balance in the region and i think you've got to take this picture that the americans are seeing if those is the question of syria it is a question of iran it's a question of his ball they're kind of painting a new axis of evil if you remember way back in two thousand and three after nine eleven the original axis of legal now they're presenting a new axis of evil and they'll say this is why we have to intervene in syria you're
2:08 pm
changing the story because the onus when you hear a bomber say that syria poses a threat to world and regional peace syria is always consumed in a civil war as much as sides talk to energies are devoted to that it's not good to attack anyone else in that region it hasn't attacked anyone it's going no history of aggression this isn't it doesn't wash it's all i have to say i think obama is weaving since he has a dog with his tail between his legs the los angeles times says he's going to go home and choose the to address what it calls a sketch of cool nation will heal so the public in america rallied behind a military strike but it seems to me that the public in america just as a public in britain is appalled to any strike and it's becoming more and more difficult for obama not just instant petersburg not just elsewhere internationally but even the whole know to win support for a case for a military strike on the basis of these allegations of chemical that can. well
2:09 pm
weapons use. now if i can chris jump in for a moment here i suppose one of the questions would be regional implications a moment ago you mentioned iran you also mentioned hezbollah in lebanon as well that we understand here at all it's either iran is threatening to retaliate if indeed america strikes syria by striking american targets in iraq and hezbollah in lebanon also echoing similar sentiments in different parts of the region talk to us about regional implications curse us three goes because one of the biggest regional implication is that it comes at a time where there is a new iranian president rouhani who is making so gestures towards the united states in terms of iran's nuclear program he's taken control through the foreign minister of negotiations and yet the americans are continuing with this hardball attitude towards blaming iran these claims i think i should say these are the pinch of salt that there is a sanction attacks on americans and interests and israeli interests in inside the
2:10 pm
region and some skepticism if i was a rhino with a hobby having held out on all of branch the americans i would be coming back and thinking well actually maybe we should be getting a nuclear weapons in order to protect ourselves from this danger not something i hope will happen but if you can see the iranians must be thinking the americans are hell bent here in some kind of military adventure and i think it has got serious implications and of course we already see the implications in iraq which is becoming a sectarian hellhole as the civil war in syria extends into iraq with terrible sectarian consequences in the shia population of iraq are being targeted in a daily basis and it says a lot of what the american states a decade ago in the right and the right continues to be in this sectarian. as a product of the past interventions by the americans so i think there are terrible
2:11 pm
regional into. cations here if the americans go ahead with a strike his bar must be almost duty bound to do something and it's our nation for it. if you threaten violence and it can only deepen the. terrible war taking place inside inside iraq and why the americans want to proceed against the background of international opposition from the g twenty summit from the united nations grew opposition in inside the way i don't know why it seems to me that obama might get away with this no and he may end up looking rather way britain's david cameron who failed to win the vote in support for a war president who's going to hole under the water why damaged goods. that's absent well you know the sun a lot of people saying cameron got a smack in the face when parliament said absolutely no to some sort of a strike on syria chris bambery a political analyst joining us live from london thank you so much for that indeed
2:12 pm
but we continue our live coverage here on c.n.n. as a as mr barry was just saying perhaps perhaps the american president barack obama is flying back to washington now with chris bambery said with his tail between his legs broke obama when he made his speech his main address to the g. twenty today was a very very short address on the american president looked pale and very tired and perhaps exhausted and drained by what is ultimately a surging growth of opposition to any type of american strike against syria well if you can stay with us here on r t we continue to do our live coverage of the g. twenty two thousand and thirteen summit here in st petersburg. the host of venture capital will join us very soon hope you can stay with us. here back to the car just a bit later so the predictably and understandably a lot of focus on syria at the g. twenty of the last two days the latest from syria than government forces have
2:13 pm
battling. rebels who attacked a christian village earlier this week model is home to some of the world's oldest christian sanctuaries is one of the few places where out of may exhibit the language of christ is still spoken rebels have now been forced out there but fierce clashes continue for national reports from damascus. i tried to go to my little village shortly after we heard that the clashes erupted there and it's just one hour drive from damascus north of the capital but we were stopped by the army and warned that it could be a one way ticket because first of all the road from damascus to milo is not safe but even if we're lucky enough to get. to the village the clashes still continue there and the raw are still some snipers who are active on the ground so the situation is very dangerous so it's better not to go there as we were told we're hearing that the fighting is between the army and the militants mostly from. al
2:14 pm
qaeda affiliated groups fighting here in syria. against the regime of bashar assad but mostly for the radical islamic state and we can see that the tactics were also. very similar to those that terrorists all around the world use we know that. early on wednesday. suicide bomber struck a checkpoint at the entrance of my little village and after a car exploded the checkpoint the militants of the stormed in and we have online and i hope you can see it right now showing rebels. in the city and residents have been telling media that the same day the militants managed to take over a mountain top saffir hotel and they've been firing from that city to poor into what we know is that my little village is
2:15 pm
a very special place not only speaking. in terms of syrian reality but internationally speaking it is home to and also strine for century catholic church and dozens of more sex where residents local residents in the shops and. during their daily life they speak aramaic the language that jesus christ believed to speak so course the whole christian community not only here in syria but all over the world was shaken and our t. managed to speak to one anon from le talk here about the situation and about the fears of the fresh and minority here in syria i mean and how can the international community ignore the brutal killing spree in latakia earlier on august the fifth and the target affected five hundred people including children women and all the people in the villages travel that they massacred all the residents and burned down their houses twelve alawite villages were subjected to
2:16 pm
this horrendous attack it was a true slaughter house people who were mutilated and beheaded there is even a video that shows a girl being dismembered alive with a so. well it's worth to mention that malula has very troubled neighbors another village of broods center of smuggling here in syria just twenty minutes drive from my little homes the city known as the percent of the question is one hundred kilometers away from this village was the only one not taken not. touched by the rebels of course one of their reporting on the ground in syria.
2:17 pm
well if you're going to like. the face you sound like you. pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i roll researcher. wealthy british style. market why not. come to. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike's cancer for
2:18 pm
a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune in to kaiser report. hello again still think it's safe and sound when on live over don't it seems a new batch of documents on a joint u.s. british surveillance program have been unveiled they show countries snooping agencies are able to look pick any digital data you possess using a multi-billion dollar budgets they who fight moneys to create nami of eavesdropping super computers while lobbying their way as well at the same time to weakening some of the major brands software nora smith picks up the story. it seems that they're capable of doing practically anything essentially all of the stuff that you do online the emails that you send the banking data that you insert when you transfer money shopping all those passwords that you've created to protect yourself online even your medical records it turns out that the guarantees that
2:19 pm
you've been given by the internet companies that all that stuff is protected are rendered practically worthless by this they've got these super computers which basically use brute force to break codes and then here's the kicker it turns out that they're collaborating with the internet service providers themselves secretly also inserting back doors into commercial in christian software so again in on the ground floor and it turns out has made significant inroads into breaking into hotmail google yahoo and also facebook where they don't work or don't structure of course there are always these these direct taps that they've got on what's called the backbone of the internet these cables that run under the sea transatlantic that carry all the internet traffic and then of course intercepting satellite communications so essentially the message is from these leaks that if the n.s.a. wants to get into your computer it can but there are some things that security experts say can make it more difficult for them to do that and ultimately that's
2:20 pm
what you're aiming to do really so first of all you can use this redirecting software enables online anonymity but you can also encrypt your communications again not failsafe not foolproof but it will protect you slightly better another thing that security experts in the guardian are suggesting today is to have a computer that has never been connected to the internet also as we've learned don't control don't trust commercial encryption software because that's likely had a backdoor inserted into his already by the n.s.a. or g c h q this is here's the experts in the guardian sums it up by saying look you know the n.s.a. . amazingly efficient at doing this it seems but ultimately they're not magicians they can't do everything in their constrained by the same financial and economic constraints that all the rest of us are so basically all you can do is make it as difficult for them as possible and just cross your fingers. laura smith in london
2:21 pm
from her now about the top story in russia the g. twenty summit in st petersburg. aussie's live coverage continues from the twenty third team g twenty summit here in russia's northern capitals in petersburg on rory sushi thank you for joining us today we are wrapping up day two of the g. twenty it's been a very busy day indeed if you've been watching us here on the program i hope you have or you've seen there's been a lot of controversy over the past two days regarding syria but also that of a global economic development so ultimately being a bit sidelined by the current crisis with syria however regardless of that let's get some economic brosnan talks here let's get down to it here with all the host of a venture capital joining us here on the set i hope you're a bit warmer than we were last hour you had a bit of a coup you call the i.m.f. chief today in front of a camera but also there was there was some global economic a mr tibbs that will pass through today as well what can you tell us a must to say well actually business wilson fake is protected the first off the
2:22 pm
night because it was the b. twenty and that's when a five hundred of the most influential business plays of the wild come together with the police. they want to talk about job creation they want to tax evasion and all of that but they warn all he says if what i said i did speak to a lot of the business community today and people like. he's the head of us have a stall a big assume people like him who is saying she would pretty satisfied that there's cooperation in terms of bass so what it means a touch of asian is the big multinationals it's going to be more law more regulation i should say because the likes of us dollar lots google apple they have been in the sport life to the beijing but they haven't been breaking any laws not because there haven't been any tolls in place that it doesn't have all the loopholes absolutely i suppose said because they've got the money to employ accountants to do that so it has been a cut down on that one but there's also been
2:23 pm
a call all of its official ball bulls and almost compare. the economy to that of a sick child now i caught up as you say with the i.m.f. chief christine legarde and i asked her why stimulus measures one she was quite shocked by my question. what would you say that the monetary policy doesn't work because we believe that it does hard to very positive effects and certainly seeing the u.s. economy and the japanese economy pick up us as they are at the moment despite the. you know fiscal. policies that door in place and that we would like to see improved a bit so no i wouldn't say that they have not worked as i would say that they have worked alone it's a question of how they or tapered in such a way that it continues to work without producing negative spillovers that could not be addressed. that was at the i.m.f. chief christine lagarde dogs he's critical be managing somehow to what schwartz the other journalists and get through for that interview with christine lagarde what
2:24 pm
else can you tell us from today day two of the g. twenty day two will probably i would say one of the biggest events has come out of this a g. twenty in terms of the business would be the bric development bank because before we came here we didn't have any details when this was the case and talk about the break some talk about brazil russia india china south africa and i before we came here we didn't know how much money each one of these countries was going to contribute and just to put this into context is a rival for the likes of the world bank and the i.m.f. because there's a moment we know the developing world is suffering they are dealing with volatility they're dealing with that current is the suffering that's in light of ben bernanke even federal reserve chairman sankey is going to be attending the taps off of the so-called medicine the so-called steroids if you like for the sick patient as we've been calling it let's get back to this by now this bank will have the boke with the money in this because it is the biggest economy out of the breaks it's going to contribute forty one billion russia india brazil are going to give eighteen billion in today's five billion will be from south africa this is believed to be
2:25 pm
a big deal because before. this as i say there were a few negotiations as to how much money each of these countries was going to give so they've laid the foundation if you like fool the banks i mean you're talking big money here but to disseminate this don't they day any change to reach consensus on a million result fun yet katie pilbeam some good news there and you can use that in your venture capital program in the next few days on sunday he was saying casey pilbeam and venture capital join us we're looking for about katie thanks for joining us here on our full ultimately the wrapping up of the g. twenty summit here we're going to be life for a couple more hours any late breaking news will give it to us straight from some petersburg here so we're winding down day two of the g. twenty a for myself. katie pilipino venture capital thank you so much for watching we hope to see you next up. so that in talking of a big name some person talking to us to cover from all realms of life after the

break the twenty twelve miss universe talks about his ex on a boycott by the responsibilities that come with being a beauty queen is on its program tonight. iraq afghanistan the balkans somalia haiti libya yemen and so on and so on the list of engagements and airstrikes by post cold war nato just keeps getting longer and now it looks like it's serious turn a lot of people have written me asking me to predict what is going to happen next which for me is a possible i'm not good at predicting the future but i can see is that we are living in a very tense moment in history many argue that the u.s. economy with its unfathomable debt is really propped up by war in the petro dollars so if the u.s. backs down here won't could be the beginning of the end for the world's only hyper power but if they do attack syria there will probably be some sort of reaction from
2:27 pm
iran russia and. if you haven't noticed nato has been trying to encircled these nations and had russian internet conspiracy land a lot of people are saying that russia is next you see if there is no resistance in syria then one by one all resistance to the un ending hunger of nato will be smashed out one by one the reason syria is so important and so scary is that you have one massive military force that could be very motivated to attack for its old self interest while you have a group of massive military forces how they build evaded to counterattack for their own self interests this is a very tense standoff that could lead to a major moment in history military history but that's just my opinion.
2:28 pm
to take russian writer for the play of the sad ones that beauty will save the world but more than a century and a half later this is yet to be prevented what is beauty and what is its place in the world well because that knowledge will and by miss universe two thousand and twelve all of the accomplished thank you very much for your time olivia of course how would you define beauty. beauty is defined by something that is not only outward i really think that being beautiful is making other people feel good in whatever way you can and that's something that you can achieve just by being pretty it's about what's inside and about what you can give to others but when you can
2:29 pm
make them feel interesting i know that what do you think these type of stands for because. you know part of your job is promoting certain brands now but is there anything more to the title than just being your beauty to you particular product absolutely i work closely. awareness and something that has been carried on every title there and but for me another important thing is just being able to be a role model for girls i came from a school that was all girls so having that camaraderie is really important to me and i feel like i can help a lot of girls that don't have a role model it's interesting that you say that because. this pageant is actually be very social scientists. bias you know beautiful people have an easier time getting a job or getting a loan and there is even some studies in your own country in the united states that .
