soko this says president obama's administration is twisting your arm to keep them onside increasingly costly war nato is functioning basically as a fig leaf for us foreign policy and us military strategy north atlantic treaty organization afghanistan where one hundred fifty thousand nato troops there really american troops for some auxilary forces are there there is a branding of their operation at u.s. military operation to make it look as if the world has come together to share against a shared objective against the war on terror against al qaeda but really i believe that nato is nothing but a fig leaf for u.s. military strategy and many of the other nato countries all over europe those populations they don't want to go along they don't want their governments that be accomplices for the u.s. war in afghanistan so the obama administration is twisting arms in lisbon it's putting pressure on the different european governments now to abandon the american government as it continues its war in afghanistan. they tow secretary generals

verification treaty between the two countries so this this this treaty maintains takes on arms control for foot and and takes the first step in a very long road to that is around obama's position so he's certainly not about trying to score political points here he's exposed himself to some extent to opponents who do seem to be trying to use this treaty themselves to score political points against him very very difficult political situation but i have to say if that treaty comes up for ratification on the floor of the senate will pass the debate is when it comes up for votes and the objections are largely about not having enough time to properly scrutinize the treaty senators have had eight or nine months to do this it's plenty of time compared to previous treaties so it really is quite baffling as to whether there really any concrete objections to this treaty coming from the senate. and coming up later in the program reaction to sarah

a viable candidate for president and the united states this week let's talk about that i think absolutely she could not be president. i don't think that she has the smarts i don't think if she has the political backing i think that she's made a career out of being. a t.v. personality and i think that when it comes to the brass tacks the republicans will not nominate her so you don't even think she'll get that far when it comes to the nomination you know i do not stranger things could happen but she's not getting my vote do you think she'll get enough votes. possibly possibly how do you feel about that. let's america if she gets the votes she can run but i'll be voting and not for her why are we giving her so much attention if she doesn't have the support out there do you think because the media is very good at giving attention to someone who's good at making a stunt of themselves so is that all it is but when it comes to election day if she actually was running you don't think that she would get in i hope that we had the

radioactive danger lies underneath. explains almost a quarter of a century since the chernobyl fallout a special confinement structure called the circle for gas is still preventing more radioactive emissions into atmosphere this structure the circle for us was built in nine hundred eighty six just months after the disaster the chernobyl nuclear power plant back then experts predict it would last for only twenty years until two thousand and six that is but as you can see from here it was strengthened and improved extending its lifetime for five more years the biggest question is how much nuclear fuel remains under the surface some experts believe that there is none as most of it did vaporize into the atmosphere and was spread around the chernobyl exclusion zone but many experts believe that there are ninety five percent of nuclear fuel still remaining under the surface and that could be tons and tons of nuclear material. we believe that the nuclear fuel under the cyclone for greece is
3:28 am
no longer a solid mass like it's almost twenty four years ago there now was more of three layers of dispersed dust so should the presence of course because collapse we could see it proved powerful explosion at facilities as powerful as a nuclear one. in order to avoid another catastrophe europe invested in the building over new confinement in two thousand and seven french company that article was allowed to start the construction of an arch like steel structure to cover the facility three years later the project is underway with more than five hundred engineers building the new circle for gas next to the contaminated plant it won't be just the frame yeah it will be a technological complex as multi-functional crane system will be installed inside the new structure eight. finals cap the new safe confinement should provide the see the works in farrant the projects initial cost was thought to be half
3:29 am
a billion euro now sources in chernobyl report that figure has almost doubled but in the fight for the continent safety no some is too much the new confinement is expected to be completed by the year twenty thirteen and is expected to last for another hundred years the only question is what is the fate of the nuclear power plant in chernobyl some say that it may be dismantled under this new dome but that is only a speculation for now we only heard that this is a process which may take another seventy years and there are no technologies to this date which would allow this to happen. see reporting from the church noble exclusion zone in ukraine. where you can discover much more at r.t. dot com back with headlines in just a few moments to stay with us.
