international community because it is very unnerving to see the justice done by israel to palestinians as well as to lebanon and syria we can no longer ignore that israel is trying to impose its own agenda it keeps using lands daily unfortunately 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 the army and security forces in this respect we are going to propose some ideas that are russian friends. eastern members of nato will benefit from its partnership with russia has ation secretary general has sat. in an interview to a german newspaper address fogh rasmussen also stated that russia nato cooperation is the best protection for the alliance members the secretary general was optimistic about joint work on missile the fans in europe which will be
a key issue at the nato summit in lisbon this week which russia will attend from the moscow state university of international relations is positive about russia nato joint project but says moscow shouldn't forget its other allies. i believe should the mentum be retained in russia need to relations should russia formally because. all the defense many of these issues will be sorted out by themselves given the level of mutual trust between the two and russia will increase significantly should they have joint missile defense which of course russia will need not to compromise any of its existing. blog relationships such as to its. relationship with china russia will only become. as objectively as some of the world's most effective militarily countries blogs.
choice key political analyst from macarthur foundation. republicans cold to slash spending across the board seems to have gone down well with voters in the us midterm elections where the economy in ruins politicians say there will be cuts in education and health care but there is one multibillion dollar area that they won't touch. with the u.s. debt in the trillions in the economy still. 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 for middle ground that cable channel talks john midterm election nightmare when you get right down to the details she really made here american you can say reality is not what i 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 that life has turned to spending would you cut defense across the board as well as the most exact figure 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 really to significantly cut spending there's an immediate outcry and 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 maintaining ready to have a capability to project force in other words it costs a lot of money to support it it's our empire we have an empire we have half 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 in 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 combined so it relies on other countries to pay for this countries like china to fund u.s. debt or another words to fund u.s. defense america's storing all these dollars in iraq and iraq afghanistan in japan in its bases around the world that's what the deficit is and that's what the u.s. isn't talking about of the federal american politicians would rather sidestep the issue i know that it's a good approach toward or protect defense at the cost of programs americans count on such as social security some high profile players 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. sundown as an imperialist power and we can't have credit card imperialism we can't be the policemen of the world 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 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 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 differential ceilings and more and lyster are t. new york and there are always more stories on our website r t dot com and here is
a quick preview of what my cats are i. think while forecasters predict the coldest winter russia has ever seen there is no sign of it yet but moscow is experiencing record breaking warm the damn birth dates. that seem to be popular at first sight when what you read gordon was presented with this bulgarian out of train trip to the country joins the labrador and tigers in the past all that and more. fresh claims of organ trafficking in costs of all have revived sinister allegations made against the region soldiers during the war seven people have been charged was luring foreign nationals to the region and harvesting their organs for sale one
suspect is lengths to the cost of a liberation army accused of trafficking the organs of captured serbs ten years ago the indictment is a starkest revelation of the extent of organized crime in the country since cost of a declared independence day greece in allegations claims this no good night's crime group including ducks his and a high level health official were involved in organ trafficking and as the investigation continues there are now growing concerns that with political instability and a weak justice system close of a could be becoming a breeding ground for criminal activity organ trafficking on fortunately exists in other parts of the world but the people who want it it's basically a big business or course the people who do it to don't do it on an ethnic basis but do it because there is a lot of money in it and the opportunity to sort of top. environment which has been existing impossible for pretty much the last ten years is of course something that
they would welcome the allegations focus on the medical private clinic and first surfaced he is a gay forcing the census to close shockingly r.t. have discovered that two things named in the indictment have continued to work ever since as another health center you're a medical and just next door to where the alleged crimes took place so we went to confront your america about. we just tried to speak to your america they want to talk to us who are asking them about the two employees who are supposedly still working there despite having been involved in the medical fears ago where you can see the proximity is extremely close the indictments have shed a harsh spotlight on organized crime in kosovo both its government and western countries cuse of turning a blind eye to the lawlessness has been growing ever since it declared independence from serbia three years ago there are also many who accuse the ruling authorities
of miscarriages of justice that date back to the wall being drawn between medicare's and the yellow house case the alleged murder and harvesting of organs of serbian war prisoners by members of the cost of a liberation army but there was insufficient evidence to bring that case to court my husband was taken just after the war ended despite surveillance having been promised security regardless of ethnicity never came back the families of kidnapped and killed people in carson have been fighting the red tape in the un mission in concert. for a long time but so far was out in new result the biggest problem is that those who are killing and kidnapping people on course have changed their soldier uniforms for this use of m.p.'s. overnight with the help of international institutions the focus is now falling on whether the territory is up to fighting organized crime
and say many can still say clearly because the abuses of the past there for. also 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 have a vote on southern in the pants the parties have to mark eight of their disputed border so the nice citizens will have the right a live on either side registration for generous referendum has now begun and the vote is part. a peace deal which and a long north south civil war several years ago. turbulent times continue for the israeli airline quantas another of its planes the star of a boeing seven forty seven was forced to return to sydney when smoke started coming from its electrical systems and the cockpit jumbo was carrying two hundred twenty one people and heading to argentina by the problem across. the pacific and this is the airline's fourth such and so then this month the most serious was an explosion in the engine of one of its brand new a three eighty s.
and its fleet of super jumbos has been ground it ever since. french president nicolas sarkozy has reshuffled his cabinet but kept in place as prime minister that's despite francois. resignation on saturday most other cabinet members have lost their jobs so political experts say the move will give the president a much greater support allowing him to implement his controversial hysteria measures. with thousands of people living rough on the streets of moscow all the chief concern for them remains how to make it through each night but thanks to one only doctor help is at hand however sean thomas reports she ballasts with a chronic lack of funding to bring treatment to the city's poorest people. as winter approaches in moscow hundreds of homeless people stand in line waiting for just a small bit of food. well people come here to eat you see this food here and eat some of it and take the rest to my kids i've got kids you know. sygate
a car the of is just one of thousands of homeless in moscow simply trying to get by but i live in a railway platform that are like forty of us there that are two openings so twenty people fit in one of them and twenty feet in the other i have been living there for one year recognizing a needle is a veteran drink and regularly sets up a makeshift clinic and distribution center near the pub you let's go to a train station in central moscow she has also started a blog to let people know the problems moscow's homeless face those who come to her for help simply call her doctor elisa. we help some people to return home the priority here is people who are seriously sick with cancer and tb those who are beaten up if we can we find their relatives i also try to help those who have come out of prison or all at once a week the homeless and the needy from all over moscow come here so that they can
get supplies of food and even medical treatment if needed but as is the case with many operations of this kind the supply just does not meet the demand. in summer we'll act shirts in the winter we don't have enough food because they need to stay warm in the winter which is impossible without food we need more room it would be good to have a place where they could stay at least when it's really cold though she faces a daunting task with limited resources those who know her say their lives are better because of dr lisa's influence. which when i met elizabeth in two thousand and six here help anywhere i can we met when we were in difficult places in our lives her mother was sick and my daughter was also at the same high. one of my daughters died in a car accident the other one barely made it she noticed me and asked what was wrong that's how we met everything i have now is thanks to her and while those who come here for help understand the stakes in these and when your daughter born i don't
know what we would do with it this help were not for these charity organizations we would be done for them dr lisa's fear is that politicians with the power to make real changes just don't understand the problems well. i don't know why this issue is being ignored because these are active people who could be returned to normal life we need to 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 no where to go for help but dilemma that gives dr lisa the inspiration to continue to help one person at a time sean thomas r t moscow coming up the syrian r.t. would take a trip to a place geologist call nature isn't a well what's our special report on the contact but instill in the far east of russia but here's
