america we've got to stop blaming the chinese and blaming everybody else and take a look at ourselves but china is not the only scapegoat us politicians use to score points. when it comes to security and defense issues there's a host of other countries actively promoted as bogeyman in the u.s. fliers like this are being turned out by a major conservative think tank in washington their designs to form a negative public opinion on the landmark arms control deal with washington that's up for ratification in the senate it would be absolutely wrong for anyone to try to demonize russia at a time when we need russia's cooperation in order to limit the amount of nuclear weapons when it comes to the future of the start treaty the ramifications of washington's fear mongering policy can be destructive as far as i'm concerned forget about reset by not ratified start by not going forward with the beauty of
accession we are just going to bolster that latter group that people don't want to do business with the west sending mixed signals has become normal business in washington d.c. has the media organization which oversees america's international broadcasting walter isaacson has recently included the country's supposed partners china and russia on his list of america's enemies as he put it a statement that he later backtracked on speaking of capitol hill is popular trend in demonizing china michael bloomberg warrant that the consequences may backfire badly if you look at the u.s. you look at who we're electing to congress to the senate they can't read i'll bet you a bunch of these people don't have passports we're about to start a trade war with china if we're not careful only because nobody knows where china is nobody knows what china is. fear mongering thrives where there is
a lack of information with ignorance making people more susceptible to bogeyman theories and some u.s. politicians take advantage of it but a question they don't answer is the fear will be able to remedy the country's economic difficulties or make americans more secure get a check on our team washington d.c. . the ratification of the latest russia u.s. arms reduction agreement has been stalled by washington a new start treaty signed in april should cuts the two country's nuclear arsenals by a third but i won't come into force until ratified by both sides something moscow says it's ready to do and foreign policy reporter josh rogin explains what's holding washington back. if they've made the decision that they want to postpone the vote on the agreement on next year or if they just want it to go down altogether or not pass at all that's a decision that's going to be made totally absent of the rational substantive arguments for against the treaty how it affects our security this is pure politics
it's not really about the merits of the treaty it's about the politics of republicans versus the obama administration you've got the public in leadership who wants to sort of see if they really think this could be a benefit to national security and then you've got this far right group the heritage foundation and their friends in some party some members of the tea party caucus who are just going to be against it off together who stands to benefit those who want to put an end to the u.s. russia reset as put forth by the obliteration the bottom line here is that what they have to benefit is to deliver a huge foreign policy failure to the bomb ministration what we have here is their white house putting all of the credibility of the reset process on this agreement and it's also one of the only few foreign policy successes that they can really count this year so if this goes down this looks very bad for obama it looks very bad for the senate democrats it looks very bad for those republicans who want to work with senate democrats so there is a new thinking about russia both of the administration and congress but for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction so those who are skeptical of the u.s. russia relationship are ripping up their efforts to oppose this new dynamic and that's
what we're seeing here and unfortunately the takeover of the house foreign affairs committee by a noted russia skeptic representative roslyn and points to increased power for this group within congress minority and small as it may be for resisting further u.s. russia cooperation so it's much easier to thwart initiative then to implement it so what we're going to see here is increased attempts by those who are russian skeptics to push back against the administration's efforts to improve relationship with russia and the administration will have to read but its efforts even more to overcome that we just don't know yet how it's going to play out. that was foreign policy reporter josh rogin there now still to come in the program modern day t.v. not just for kids is what some pair wrongly believe as the truth is all the story of cartoons for their children. the world is marking the international day against a wall more than two decades after the fall of the berlin barrier palestinians who still live surrounded by concrete fans in the west bank are demanding it be torn down but as pulis liers been finding out some locals are using the five hundred
kilometer long wall for their own benefit. honey a mare lives on a hot piece of real estate but it's not because of his view seven years ago the israeli army both had sworn in front of his house and behind it and to the sides of it so that now he's completely closed in this gate his only contact with the outside world and he's the only one with the key bridge over i was all just trying different ways to get me to move they tried to force and also by offering me money indirectly they offered me an open chair and told me how my life would change if i took the money and left the country construction on the wall began eight years ago among the nine hundred forty nine armistice line between israel and the palestinian west bank israel insists it's for security but palestinians complain it's a part hate and the international court of justice has said it breaches
international law since the wall was built so i want to clear as well as keeping people out it's also been bringing others in businessmen who his son runs what he calls alternative twigs and brings tourists to see israeli settlements checkpoints and border fences but he's highlight the wall of the mill mine mainly the work he was shot i have a lot of people been crying in the pool you know on the have like some jewish people come with an offer of to have jewish americans but jewish israelis aren't allowed to sign up to go into the palestinian territories it's it's it's shutting this well we i mean i as a fan of pink floyd that i thought that this world belongs belong to the past so this is this people here because i know deep inside jerusalem nobody some of them there but they have to go through checkpoints. you know what's the what it's like. israel insists the walls kept suicide bombers out army spokeswoman avatar leibovich
says most of its nearly five hundred kilometers is infected feigns with less than four percent. concrete in the entrance to bethlehem you will see a concrete wall because in two thousand and four fifty percent of the suicide bombers that entered israel came from bethlehem so only in those places that has extra security sensitivity that's where the concrete wall was built elsewhere as you can see here we're talking about a regular fence with electronics but there's nothing regular about caging people in say this israeli couple who are taking the wall on to a goal to gussy is leaving for america where she's arranged to give talks and raise money to help palestinians you know surrounded by a wall and that she can't live without having certain elements. and you live in poverty but the war means money for some travel agencies winning business from showcasing or perhaps revealing in israeli security measures. if you're planning
a trip to the holy land gone are the days of visiting traditional religious sites now if you go online you'll find two is like the ultimate counterterrorism mission a tour with the army or territories and a tour that involves a palestinian raid but it's no holiday for honey because while tourists can come and go he's stuck hear him didn't buy an israeli wall paula sphere r t israel. a prominent russian journalist who was brutally beaten in moscow is a critical condition in hospital two attackers ambushed on their caution with metal rods on friday night nearly beating him to death he is currently in a coma with one lakh both parts of his jaw and fingers broken president dmitry medvedev says it was clearly not a random assault and has vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice police have so far been i'm able to identify and locate the attackers who were caught on camera cautions beating has sparked an outcry in russia and abroad the journalist made
a name for himself by slamming several high profile government officials investigators say cautions professional activity was the most likely cause for the attack before the vietnam war and its several decades ago but the suffering it created is continuing the us poisonous herbicide cold agent orange was used to destroy forests and agricultural lands but it's also killed hundreds of thousands and still continues to cause horrific birth defects i find some of the images in katrina's are his report disturbing. vietnam may be one of only five socialist states in the world but its economic progress is notable business is booming hirees offices sprout up everywhere and the people have opportunities to improve their lives but that wasn't the vietnamese struggle and not the french or reasons. that saying all this their love and war has been used to justify many military decisions but when during the vietnam war the united states began deploying
a chemical weapon nicknamed agent orange over this country not many could have predicted that those from the most well be the soldiers on the battlefields but their children most at home or even born at the time. hoochie whom is thirty four years old he would never guess by looking at or born blind and with many severe physical difficulties her parents feed and bathe her to this day her life was taken away from her before she was even born. my daughter was born blind and we didn't know why until would soakers of the hospital in one thousand eight hundred one and the doctors did some blotches that's when they said she was affected by agent orange it's very difficult second care of her because she is completely helpless completely dependent. for a decade american jets dispersed eighty million liters of the then brand new herbicide over the territory of vietnam operation ranch ranch did not win the war
but did achieve its goal of destroying millions of hectors of agricultural fields and expose nearly five million people to its deadly poison. half a million children in vietnam were born with severe physical and mental disabilities all because of agent orange. no u.s. government nor the chemical companies that made the herbicide have paid a single cent in compensation to those whose lives were destroyed by their work their only relief has come from the vietnamese government and various international organizations like the red cross who have set up so-called peace villages there affected children get their chance to live a life with as much normality as their conditions allow power woman who can treat kids and then to tame them at the same time we only get fifty cents per child from the government but we need more of course to help the children in the home they study in a school on site play with friends living in the village and get medical and physical treatment from the doctors but not many of them will ever grow to be fully
independent and self-sufficient adults and that is the harshest of all their burdens. even if the united states paid some compensation for what they did no money can give my daughter her life back nothing can pay for this pain. gas runners are r.t.e. vietnam. and a top afghan government official has been killed by a roadside bomb in the east of the nato all or two of its service members were killed in action in afghanistan over the past twenty four hours u.s. led international coalition is struggling to bring peace to the country as the alliance plans to begin a troop drawdown next year however britain's top military commander says at least a thousand u.k. troops might stay after twenty fifteen. jamar says a party with links to the military has won eighty percent of the vote in the country's first election in two decades the poll promoted fighting between rebel

protest looks set to rage on despite police using tear gas and baton some campaigners on sunday. now despite the odds of it cartoons remain a favorite was both young and old and as criticism towards modern day telly and its obsession with violence rises a number of parents are turning to old school cartoons as a means of educating their kids however huge funding cuts are drawing out a grim picture for russia's modern day cartoonist artist tom barton reports. it's cartoon time in the musculature household. on the telly not the latest animation creations rather old soviet classics i mean apart from many other things these cartoons lay the very basics of my concepts about life what's good and bad what's bible and what's to be ignored. like them or not these old cartoons have a huge following throughout eastern europe in the former soviet union and new
generations are just as captivated. yes they gave us a very good message. demento many say they prefer soviet cartoons even if they're decades old to western creations and one called hedgehog in the fog the little hero has to find his courage and some friends to help him out of the mist of beer that are mostly it's about good over evil he was lonely and fearful in the fog but able to tell who or what was around him then he was helped by his friends and was rescued here the cartoons creator says that works like his to live a healthy morals to children as well. speaking of humaneness pope john paul the second used to say if you want to bring up your children in a humane way show them cartoons. of the most famous is called. let

is over the reason capitalism in the financial crisis have slashed state funding in half. with state sponsored films one could take a risk the film that didn't go to distribution could be written off the program produced it these days would never take risks he just wants to make money from films. which means that for now the mascot children who stick with the current that parents watched soviet and russian animators have long innovated despite a lack of funding the cartoons they created scene if anything to be growing in popularity with the current funding situation as bad as it is the question is whether you question animation can survive children like these. let's go. all the on line for twenty four hours a day with many more stories and videos and here's a taste of what you'll find right now at. the new mayor of moscow is now tapping the city's most pressing issue traffic as outlined basic measures aimed at solving
