2:06 am
is being kept to the british though to give chinese exports an advantage. china supports very hard for the u.s. jobs meaning its trading partner. china is also the largest foreign holder of u.s. debt and there's also discussed human rights with say china is willing to continue to. respect and should not interfere in internal affairs policies coming forward reports to countries next relationship. i went into burger king with my son and i. think it's a z.h. using. z h u z h u and recognize the that is chinese for seven americans the word china elicits fear recognizing china's rise means recognizing america's decline now we are getting not our toys in our things in our little happy meals which should be banned there so dangerous. not just our toys
2:07 am
in the bag made in china. but the image and everything else culture coming from china. or others china elicits feelings of inferiority according to the pew research center forty seven percent of americans think china is the world's leading economic power only thirty one percent think america. that's certainly the opinion among students at millinocket school in maine which will welcome paying chinese students to close its budget gap next year i think the chinese are going to be total shock i think about high tech in a way more advanced than us like ten times more money in like in a better society and then you look at a similar way poor and. as hu jintao tours the u.s. capitol american officials are eager to quell fears about what a rising china could mean for the world's only superpower still some analysts say that the united states should be focusing on what it can learn from china rather than merely containing it china knows how to develop their doing we are expanding
2:08 am
and consuming rather than saving and investing for the future a sentiment echoed by many we spoke to a lot to learn terms productivity organizational resources and also having a culture that values hard work more you know i think they're trying to develop their economy and cheer some of the wealth with the folks economically politically militarily china is on the rise. and while the u.s. put education on the chopping block this year china invested four percent of its g.d.p. in primary and secondary schools in poor rural area chinese universities are mushroom in all across the country and increasingly attracting prestigious foreign professors and even american students like philadelphia native zachary franklin seemed. just a better decision to be in a country learning about economics where so much is happening economically getting a master's in shanghai doesn't mean crippling student loans chinese students
2:09 am
themselves you know not paying absorbent amounts of money for an education in this country. china is also speeding ahead on high speed rail lines in massive infrastructure chinese officials say they will complete the first eco city by two thousand and twenty which will be home to three hundred fifty thousand as u.s. lawmakers squabble for years over who will foot the bill for every high speed rail link bridge or metro expansion america instead dreams to rebuild the old interstate highway system we built gigantic infrastructure projects in the u.s. our history the city more unified as a people are moving in a positive direction and i wish we could say the same president obama has plenty to put on the table as he hosts his chinese counterpart at the first u.s. china state dinner but will the white house be equally eager to learn from its gas and ford r t washington d.c. . economist max war says that even though china is booming one the u.s.
2:10 am
is on the way in both countries still depend on each other. but is interesting to see the triumvirate of an american government being very solicitous of the chinese government and bringing in its big guns who are very much part of american policy toward china and that would be the leading our fortune five hundred u.s. companies companies like general electric and goldman sachs which are very much represented in today's meetings and they do kind of suggest that there is a nexus of power between large american transnational corporations and u.s. china business relations which have shifted a bit over time as some of the initial excitement about china in corporate circles has given way to very much still excitement but with some concerns about u.s. export access to chinese markets there is every indication both in the american and the chinese consciousness that china is on the rise and the united states is struggling unsuccessfully to keep up its portion of the world economic engine that it's been we're in that danger of falling below twenty percent of world g.d.p.
2:11 am
a place we haven't been since before world war two actually and the chinese are very much galloping had terms of their portion of world g.d.p. their importance their relevance in africa their relevance in south america the united states has borrowed so much money from china in many different vestiges and forms that the united states and china are in a mutually dependent relationship they need to make sure we can pay them back and that we keep borrowing to keep buying and we need to make sure they keep lending and keep favorable to us because we really rely on china both as an import and export market and you see the leaders working to domestic constituencies uncomfortable with that mutual dependency but they know they have to nurture it and sort of drown out voices that are hostile or suggest all kinds of non-viable and dangerous breakdowns in bilateral relations. while andrew kavanagh szell who's at globalization arista gave us his reasons why china is becoming a new geopolitical e to. the rise of china is not against the prevailing edgemont in the world
2:12 am
america but the rise of china is we in the hedge money system itself what i mean by that is that globalization which is a western driven reach driven project. has facilitated the rise of china so china rises so much as the west allows it to rise and now the chinese stronger and feels more secure they're starting to weaken issued it's on their own they're starting to try to create a consumption class within china itself to become more self-sustaining so americans are now have a very codependent relationship in which china finances america's debt allowing america militaristic around the world controlling resources american consumes chinese products which are developed cheaply benefiting both china and america so they're incredibly that and in terms of finance and banking they're heavily heavily integrated but there's also it's gets a frantic relationship in a sense because there are also each other's greatest competitors and this is mostly
2:13 am
seen in the competition for global resources and this has been outlined in strategy peepers in america since the early ninety's where the aim is to prevent the rise of the power by controlling world resources. the u.s. death toll comes under scrutiny in the kaiser report late today on naughty as max and stacey reveal the destructive streak running through the upper echelons of wall street. this psychological profile of jamie diamond lloyd blankfein goldman sachs j.p. morgan this guy bailey is that of the arsonist the arsonist likes to burn things down there pyromaniacs here on wall street you have got debt maniacs they like to destroy things with debt and they like the price of debt to be as cheap as a pack of matches. if the price of dead is a cheap as a pack of matches as it is now they can continue to burn things down to destroy the economy like they're doing at this very moment and what is the obama administration
2:14 am
doing they are giving the pyromaniacs and the arsonist more starting fluid more lighter fluid more matches whatever they need to destroy the economy so you have to ask the question is obama in the pocket of the financial terrorist yes he says. it's been described as israel's big is a huge facility where it's claimed phone calls and e-mails from who cross the middle east and beyond to me monitored for intelligence where hidden from the prying eyes for decades in the desert it's become a focus for investigative journalists. has more on who's listening in. many israelis have probably driven posture and not cast a second glance a few satellite dishes outside a little known town in the negev desert but this is no ordinary military base this is the largest or equal stowing facility that i've ever seen on and hagar should
2:15 am
know he's been studying signal intelligence or electronic spying for the last twenty five years a tip off gave him access to people on the inside you know want to talk to paul or and still get there could be stepping up this guy would answer it simply to come on the back it had never been seen but now it's showing up all of a satellite images with thirty different listening antennas directed high over the equator each targeting a different dish in the sky the cape everything that passing over the satellite system simply doesn't discriminate ever be listens travelgate and that's a lot of listening from this hub every telephone call every email can be intercepted and according to duncan campbell somewhere where along the coast north of tel a large groups of people are listening in typically you have large windowless what looked like just real warehouses but with massive security you are
2:16 am
seeing many such places across the united states and several hundred people will check in in the morning start filing through checking emails looking at the listening to telephone calls but inside israel no one's talking of it heard about a boat i don't know what's the word based refers to exactly what is the reason behind the focus of the reason focused on this particular word is just a platform you have to understand the new comes to intelligence you need a platform in order to carry whatever needs you need in order to intercept but why wasn't this platform itself intercepted it was pretty well hidden until. when hagar went to public on ash my first surprise was. that there was this huge spine which will be profoundly enforcing the politics of the middle east and beyond but then that the second great surprise was that clearly being there as long
2:17 am
as some of the bases which point the birth of. russia any of those states to other countries and just maybe that's the point of those who need to know know exactly where it is what it is point c. r. t. tel aviv. britain's iraq war inquiry could leave some feeling as an important piece of the jigsaw is missing that's because a correspondence between george w. bush and tony blair in the run up to the conflict won't be heard commission is supposed to question military and political thinkers on why britain invaded when british politician and germany corbin's party was in power at the time and tells r.t. later that investigation would have more respect for the went to an international court. if a european politician former head of government in the case of tony blair was actually brought before the. international court in the hague and investigated
2:18 am
the rest of the world would have far more respect for the international process because the moment the most prominent people who come before it have been. the attempts at a rest in the president of sudan the current trial that's going on charles taylor from liberia and the pass process on milosevic and the situation in yugoslavia but the perpetrators of this war. iraq war are in the united states and in in europe and i think it would do an awful lot for the standing of this because there is a bit of a feeding the rand ok you go off to big guys in small countries you won't go after big guys in big countries. want to take a look now at some other headlines from around the world the south fifty three members over deposed two museum president's family have been arrested in front of
