fighting against as drug war at home have their own demons to contend with as policy or now report. abdulrahim used to put people behind bars for doing drugs now he's been put there himself but the former army commander denies the charges he insists he never swayed from the white side of the law. we saw a truck driving on the main road something made me suspicious and i checked out the cargo we found our car tax heroin in some drugs but what for him claims he didn't expect to find a driver who told authorities he was involved in drug smuggling. by himself is guarded by another policeman if. he's been taking drugs since he was twelve and went for treatment only recently after the prison warden found out he's in good company according to recent u.s. congress report nearly half the afghan police are doing drugs well. when i graduated as
4:01 am
a policeman as i was doing i can't quite i bought for about two years although the other policeman here knew about it quite a few police drug addicts not telling anyone they're just saying i'm smoking something about politics afghanistan's biggest jail many of the five thousand prisoners here are doing time for drug smuggling and or drug use but the locks are not sure safe way of keeping the drugs out. there on the move these are the different kinds of drugs we collected over the past years. this is a mix of all your contacts. but then all of this is opium but this is the kind of tricks drugs inside a calm family members coming to visit bring these with them we found drugs in shoes over the years prison guards have been charged with lending a hand. up there will be yes it's true when i joined
4:02 am
a few years ago lots of guards were involved in smuggling drugs into the jail they are not very good educated and they don't have enough so there are a lot. joining the produce truth out of the people who join the police to start going south but the ministry of canton a cottage insists it's now got a hold on the problem before the police can become a police he get tested he will have certain tests before coming to before going through the exercise part of our are becoming a police sergeant. this is something that has been developed and are to be level but questions remain what if some of those fighting afghanistan's drug war are actually foot soldiers for the other side and with the many challenges the country faces doesn't really have the resources to tackle become option within its ranks
4:03 am
inside these four walls is a snapshot of the problems facing afghan society telep members drug traffickers and petty criminals and the prisons over crowded porous fear are teen preaching keep was in kabul. now for more on the story we're joined in the studio by your heart a political expert from the institute of world economy and international relations thank you very much for being here with us well as you've just heard from this report this problem is massive and may have huge implications for other countries so what can be done to stop the drug flow. no drugs flow just one problem in a line of many problems a government faces the united states and its faith. and to name a few those who have to talk about the taliban. influence growing all over the concho you have to take about movements getting into afghanistan likely slam it movement. so the problem is that united states and allies face so many
4:04 am
challenges in afghanistan and the situation has spiraled out of control already so you see drugs are just not a priority and so could you tell us a bit more about the challenges that the u.s. is facing there you know as bush administration failed to nation building going to get too focused on. against saddam hussein not of guinness then for many years and no obama administration is trying to correct that but you know it's too far too late so i think that there is a number of challenges united states faced first of all. to live on is getting more and more public support in afghanistan itself and in pakistan also there are lots of radical islamic movements from x. for you to publics of central asia and those movements like this learned movement of his biggest and are fighting against americans in afghanistan and pakistan
4:05 am
they're fighting to get the kabul government they're fighting against islam above government and you know the street was so complicated some miracles face so many problems that fighting drugs isn't just the priority of the moment there's i think the biggest tragedy for those countries that neighbor the region. well it looks like the country won't be able to tackle this problem are by itself but given the complexity of the situation there could we see that some countries perhaps maybe even taking advantage of ghana stance drug problem are you know i don't think any country can take advantage of that but i think that the united states just ignore the issue they have their own problem with drugs coming from believe they're coming from colombia. drug enforcement administration of the united states is fighting those drugs coming from coming from of the latin america through mexico and they just don't care much about that and on the contrary european allies of the united
4:06 am
states. with the influx of drugs coming into their country but you know it's american war americans are taken the stall of the war the major force fighting the libs and actually they just ignore the problem i don't think they take advantage or some kind of conspiracy you see around that but they just don't care much about it and that's. ok let's take a look at the situation now i mean russia and its southern borders as of the country have several central asian border several central asian states how concerned russia is about this problem unlike the soviet union that. border with afghanistan more than russia doesn't border of afghanistan so there's a number of. soviet republics central asian republics that are between afghanistan and russia but you know the problem is the trash doesn't have. truly border the
4:07 am
well guarded border between between russia itself and cause a stun so that influx of drugs coming from again a stern because not of a guest of an order was a ten x. and they smuggle drugs into to jigger stone sometimes is just one family divided by a river that. crosses the contras and then the traffic gets into russia and then after having affected russia it gets further into europe so you see european countries are pretty affected by that russian law enforcement to my mind is one of the most effective in the world. and in fighting against drugs a jew to the specifics all for the situation inside russia russian drug enforcement administration isn't corrupt you see it so unlike many other countries like in latin america where you see that common business between police and drugs in russia i have never found i've been studying the issue for fifteen years i've never found
4:08 am
any science of. corruption so russian drug enforcement restriction is pretty effective it's rather brutal but it's quite effective the problem is there's a large amount of drugs coming from again a system fails they get into a central asian states and then further to rush into europe so that's a big problem and we can solve the problem by fighting drugs in afghanistan itself otherwise even the most effective drug enforcement can solve the problem completely right you have law political expert from the institute of world economy and international relations thanks very much indeed for being here with us in the program. you're watching r t and security is being tightened across the north of india as authorities fear a legal judgment on a religious side will spark massive unrest the high court has to rule whether the land of the ancient town of. belongs to muslims or hindus it's a story dispute the has already taken thousands of lives as current singh reports
4:09 am
an uneasy rests on the streets of new york here the battleground for them in defeat legal showdown in those considered a two week a plot of land the sacred birthplace of law a hindu god but previously it was an islamic mosque that stood here until in one thousand nine hundred two a hindu mob destroyed it that and the anti muslim riots that followed remain a brought on india's image as a secular country since then the government has resisted attempts to build a temple or a mosque on the disputed site and now there are fears that riots will follow but that the court supports the claims of hindus or muslims and that anger has residents of all faiths because they feel trouble is usually fall vented by outsiders and i believe that my character in the entire muslim community here wants peace whatever the verdict is whoever the man goes to we are ready to make sceptics for so many years political parties have used the religious sentiments of people to
4:10 am
create trouble and game votes we will not let them succeed this time. there's a real desire for a quick decision to allow people to get on with their lives shopkeeper. says his sales are down because pilgrims are staying there we discovered that upper limb pick to cement this is a temple town and if people don't visit because of trouble or increased security i can sell them my goods how can they survive like this. many analysts insist the india of two thousand and ten is different from the india of nine hundred ninety two and both people and political parties will show restraint most indians have moved on from the divisive politics of religion to the more pressing issues of jobs and livelihoods feticide for you. the government should let the verdict come out whoever it may be if it favors the hindus that our muslim brothers should not mind it they should accept it peacefully as a decision of the court and if it favors the muslims then my hindu brothers should
4:11 am
also accept it gracefully. whatever the verdict this will not be the end of the judicial process as the losing side is certain to appeal to india supreme court nevertheless this is an opportunity for the people to showcase an inclusive india of the twenty first century where the rule of law is followed and where religious bigotry has no please god and seeing. new delhi. and he always go to r.t. dot com for more stories we're on line for you twenty four hours a day here's a taste of what you'll find there right now. america's infrastructure succumbing to the laws of gravity find out why thirty five bridges have collapsed in the state of minnesota alone. and as moscow's mayor gets the sack rush is gay community is allowed to stage a protest on the capital streets for the first time for more head to our. major media outlets as the un general assembly gathered to cover speeches from

they were quite slow to realize that the sovereign crisis in the yours had never actually gone away spreads were actually rising over the summer particularly in august when we had all the concerns coming through about the cost of resolving the financial sector crisis it all and and i think now we're in a situation where the markets realize this isn't a one year problem it's a multi-year problem while europe is busy cutting its way out of crisis much to the displeasure of public sector workers and the data from the u.s. is anything but comforting investors are looking for the next growth areas top of that list appears to be the bric countries brazil russia india and china but other strong enough to perform well if the developed nations start going into reverse again at least one analyst thinks not if indeed there is a second wave the second shock in the us or europe markets will not be able to sustain that growth why do was say that is that because of a large share of trade and capital flows still a link to the u.s.
