a soaring again pushing them to take their business elsewhere in the short run we would be doing you should we be increasing the prevention we would be increasing the impulse of the concert for the buses by overseas he's referred to china also known as the factory of the world with a major chunk of every manufactured art of today either fully or partly made in china i'm here in the heart of the largest chinatown. there have been for generations of chinese that moved to japan and they've been fitted greatly for the rise of this country economically but ironically irrational country they had left has now overtaken their adoptive home to become the second largest economy in the world which means japan is now chasing the pack rather than leading it and japan you're quite right still seeing you're stuck in the mud struggling to generate. growth beyond the u.s. so the sluggish. and i'm not sure
2:04 am
either of those things are never going to change many would say we're witnessing the beginning of china's era its economic clout is undeniable at the recently concluded g. twenty and apec summit barack obama repeatedly demanded that china. the let's the you want appreciate seeing below chinese currency is hurting u.s. exports chinese president hu jintao remained unmoved china gets the last word that's the new reality in asia if not the whole world. tests are cilia r.t. yokohama japan. and still plenty to come this hour here in our team clothing. at the. sundown as an imperialist power republicans seem eager to throw countless piles of dollars at us to fans mostly at the cost of social benefits. are they a way of saying sorry apologies service opens in moscow where anyone can pay to

bribe the wrongs of the air relationships. and military assistance is what's on the table as the lebanese prime minister is coming to moscow saad hariri is expected to meet with his counterpart was a reporter during the two day visit had his trip are to talk to the lebanese premier on relations between the two countries as well as international issues such as russia's role in the middle east peace process and watch the full interview in about twenty minutes time here on our team here's a preview. and therefore i think russia could play a very important role does mean your friends in the arab world we need to use our relations with russia in order to communicate the arab stance and think through the international community because it is very unnerving to see that in just as done by israel to palestinians as well as to lebanon and syria we can no longer ignore that israel is trying to pose its own agenda it keeps using lands daily unfortunately
2:06 am
the world is not doing anything about it literally relations with russia are very important to us and we would like these relations to be economically beneficial as well also like to find out how russia could assist lebanon and equipping their army and security forces in this respect we are going to propose some ideas to our russian friends. the republicans call to slash spending across the board seems to have gone down well with voters in the u.s. midterm elections with the economy in ruins politicians say there will be cuts in education and health care but there is one multi-billion dollar area that they won't touch. with the u.s. debt in the trillions in the economy still in the toilet it's no surprise politicians in washington are calling for this solution it's across the board spending cuts and in fact it was the rallying cry heard round the cable channel talk on midterm election night when you get right down to the details so charity
2:07 am
made here medicaid you can however that is not what i say it looks a lot more clear that across the board cuts really exclude a fifty eight percent chunk of the budget and i mean clearly it has turned to spending would you cut defense across the board as well as the best example you do you do not cut defense that how can politicians afford not to touch the six hundred billion dollars a year elephant in the discretionary room. that rises to over a trillion dollars depending on what you factor into what you're calling defense minutes a politician democratic or republican or a particular session of congress begins to reduce significantly cut spending there's an immediate outcry of those congressional districts that are impacted. i'm sure it's political and hey being a superpower doesn't come cheap it's a question of brain training ready to have the capability to project force in other words it costs a lot of money to support this it's our empire we have an empire we have half
2:08 am
a million of our troops in other people's countries all over the world. maybe the spending isn't that big of a deal when you put it like that sounds like a huge giant number of terms of u.s. dollars but we have a fourteen trillion dollar economy but here is what else is quickly approaching fourteen trillion dollars the u.s. debt get the u.s. continues to demand spending almost as much on defense as the rest of the world. fine relies on other countries to pay for this countries like china to fund us debts or another words to fund us to america storing all of these dollars in iraq and. afghanistan in japan and its bases around the world that's what the deficit is and that's what the us isn't talking about the federal american politicians would rather sidestep the issue i know. or protect defense at the cost of programs americans count on such as social security some high profile players
2:09 am
are drawing attention to what actually resembles reality comedians for one america is like a family that spends way more than they bring in and dad to give up that big stupid boat. and you know what america's stupid boat is it's our empire oh yeah and former budget director is a republican president. and the. son is an imperialist power and we can't have credit card imperialism we can't be the policemen of the world anymore because we can't afford it we're going to cut defense drastically but with the will on capitol hill looking more like this do you do not cut defense and the president overseeing this astronomical defense driven debt what does this really mean for the country it means that mr obama is trying to turn the united states into a third world country just as george bush did and just as clinton did there's just as reagan did so there's been a constant movement of the united states to run up foreign debt without any ability
2:10 am
to pay or even without any intention to pay and when that credit card is maxed out that tough talk we're hearing now that you're going to be falling on defense you assume it's more in mr r t you your. and there are always more stories on our website or t. dot com but here's a quick preview what my cats are right there. forecasters predict the coldest winter right. ever seen there is no sign of a yet but mosque of eyes experiencing record breaking warming of them for days. to discover why horrific side effects of the vietnam war are still felt today with mary saying now about of the west compensation to give them back their health all this and more at r.t. dot com.

2:14 am
it hospitals that could solve many problems related to prolong to deaths or chronic disease it's not just the patient himself who is handicapped but the people around him who are the caregivers also become emotionally handicapped they have nowhere to go for help a dilemma that gives dr lisa the inspiration to continue to help one person at a time sean thomas r.t. moscow. and i will take a look at some other stories from around the world and the african union says north and south sudan have agreed a framework to smooth out tensions ahead of a vote in southern independence the parties have disputed border sudanese citizens will have the right now to live in either side and registration for january's referendum has now begun the vote as part of a peace deal which anabel long north south civil war several years ago. turbulent times continue for the australian airline quantas another of its planes this time

2:16 am
chop the future of the welfare state is up for debate in today's cross-talk next hour here in our. study to me properly. the problem is that the government doesn't believe that we can afford it well peter can you afford it. i don't see why i don't it's a great decision about how you spread in public but in the welfare state is not another pay t.v. program which we can switch on and off it's part of a social contract it's part of our constitution the welfare state we're helpings making some people better off or a clear proof proving their welfare but we've got the same time around on welfare state for those people are paying we're we're redistributing.
2:17 am
now if you're in the doghouse with your loved one while we look at next could be your get out of jail free card one russian entrepreneur has started up a new business and its unique product is apologizing on your behalf yeah be careful though as it could have the opposite effect and prove the final straw are these hapless from magic jacob greaves want to find out more. for many asking for forgiveness is a daunting task but it doesn't have to be any war that's now a sneak peek and by the apology even plucking up the courage to say to a loved one was not you know when it comes to apologies a person needs help so i think that it's a great idea to help people make peace with each other and the five letter word can come in many shapes and sizes and they all know we have a list of the forms of apology that we offer clients so that is envelopes that can be personalized by the customer we also send get you like cuddly toys balloons and flowers so his what they have on offer i'm in thirty roubles can get you

2:19 am
paper decided it was a sign and came here. there are however those who see the rise of such services as a warring trend in modern society to shun face to face contact in favor of the latest means of communication in france in my opinion it demonstrates the tendency for people to shy away from expressing their feelings nowadays we communicate via the internet and mobile phone a lot and stay in sort of isolation from each other. but even with its detractors many who showed up for forgiveness from a stranger feel it's a minor price to pay but it helps reno is a long time love as jake agrees. and coming up adds ten am g.m.t. here in our tale we take a trip to a place geologist called nature's and make what our special report of the can talk about insulin and the far east of russia here's a preview. for you. are comfortable shuttle

2:22 am
conditions moreover we think that they're based on the research shows that we have . presented for the ministry of finance the minister of transportation minister of economy it is clearly showed that during the time of the construction there will be a ratio of different new industries that are going to be created in russia cost jobs and a lot of new services as well as saving time high speed real shoes to go looking to make development in russia's regions foreign partners will provide to knowledge and expertise forming a joint venture with an attitude to subsidiary cost estimates excess of forty billion dollars but that could come down. that means that all new high speed rail is a built to the same standards the rolling stock is built to the same standards and in theory you should be able to run a train anywhere in european network has been built so be very careful which standards it chooses if it wants to have a low cost railway for the future and you ear of rail travel began in russia with
