in the us. when the economy's bad unemployment heart blame china many us politicians use that tactic to get elected this year maybe you ought to run for senate try something close to hatred is being promoted against china here to the point when new york city mayor michael bloomberg said enough is enough . i think in 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 u.s. politicians used to score points. when it comes to security and defense issues there is 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
6:01 am
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 deputy accession we are just going to bolster that latter group of people who 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 cahsee quinces may backfire
6:02 am
badly if you look at the us 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 theories and some u.s. politicians take advantage of it but a question they don't answer is a beer will be able to remedy the country's economic difficulties or make americans more secure get a check on r.t.e. washington d.c. . the ratification of the latest russia u.s. reduction agreement has been stalled by washington the new start treaty signed in april and should cut the two country's nuclear arsenals by a third but it wouldn't come into force until ratified by both sides something

moscow says it's ready to do foreign policy reporter josh rogin explains what's holding washington back. if they've made this 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 marriage 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
6:04 am
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 in the administration and in 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 rosslyn 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 russia 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 rogan well still to come for you here in the program on our t.v. sometimes the old one of the best one. cartoon. in the world is marking the international day against the war more than two decades after the fall of the berlin beriah palestinians who still live surrounded by a concrete fence in the west bank demanding it be torn down but is. has 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 bills 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 our shoulders trying
6:06 am
different ways to get me to move they try to force and also by offering me money indirectly they offered me an open check 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 ironically as well as keeping people out it's also been bringing others in businessmen up to his son runs what he calls alternative to it 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 shocked i have a lot of people been occurring in the proof you know on the have like some jewish
6:07 am
people come with an offer often have jewish americans but jewish israelis until now to sign up to go into the palestinian territories it's it's it's shutting this well i mean i as a fan of pink floyd i thought that this world belongs to belong to the past so this is this people here they cannot get inside jerusalem nobody some of them there but they have to go through checkpoints. you know that's 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 in fact 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
6:08 am
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 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 police fear r t israel.

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 their affected children get their chance to live a life with as much normality as their conditions allow a woman who can treat kids and then detain 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 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.

a new animated feature film about the famous one nine hundred sixty s. . bass talks so far it's sold well but its critics say it is just a copy of american cartoons. certainly there are some american clichés nonetheless is a unique product a unique russian picture we tried gathering as much information as possible about the fifty's and early sixty's to demonstrate it in our film despite the team's hopes some old russian cartoon makers worry that the innovation of the soviet era 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 characters that parents watched soviet and russian animators have long innovated despite a lack of funding the cartoons they created seen if anything to be growing in
