it's all poor ranking u.s. security officials michael matz who spoke to the opposition leaders was that it shows the incompetence of the current opposition in the country and that they have to learn to negotiate with their thirty's on their own in achieving their goals and that's even though during the bush administration the u.s. has shown support to the country's opposition the situation has changed nowadays washington should pay more attention to significant incidents related to freedom of assembly in russia to solve problems in russia civic society parties should sit down at the negotiating table both russian and the us governments and representatives from n.g.o.s it is up to russian activists to build up their relations with their administration with very tree lighting on america michael maxwell has also said that the united states is not indifferent or blind to the
7:03 am
human rights issues that do exist in russia nonetheless it's not going to side with the opposition leaders the who are asking for that so much has changed in the relation between russia and the united states since the bush administration of especially after the so-called resets of the relations between russia and the united states but as head of the presidential election in two thousand and twelve russia's opposition wants the united states to side with that in order to more be their interest but the response from the us ambassador to russia to that was that it shows the incompetence of russia's opposition and the fact that they do not have the same understanding of democracy as americans do. to further improve relations between russia and the us the a bomb or administration has a stand simply refrain from vocal support for democratic reform civil society activists in russia are unaware of the contours of the u.s.

7:05 am
foreign holder of u.s. debt limit is likely discussed human rights with saying china is willing to continue talks based on mutual respect and the normal interference in their internal affairs. for reports of the two countries mixed relationship. i went into burger king with my son and i thought of this and i think it's is. the true z z h u z h u and recognize the that is chinese for some americans the word china elicits fear recognizing china's rise means recognizing america's decline and now we are getting knocked. our toys and our things in our little happy meals which should be banned there so dangerous. not just our toys in the bag made in china but the image and everything else culture coming from china.
7:06 am
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. capital 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 it they're doing it we're spending boring and consuming rather than saving and investing for the future
7:07 am
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 than i think they're trying to develop their economy and share some of the wealth with the folks i could nominally 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 mushrooming all across the country and increasingly attracting prestigious foreign professors and even american students like philadelphia native zachary franklin. just a better decision to be in the country learning about economics where so much is happening economically getting a master's in shanghai doesn't mean crippling student loans chinese students themselves you know not plane absorbing amounts of money for an education in this
7:08 am
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 fit the bill for every high speed rail link bridge or metro expansion america just adds streams so we've got the whole interstate highway system where you build gigantic infrastructure projects in u.s. history the city more unified as a people are moving in a positive direction that 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 in ford r t washington d.c. . gallon among still has the globalization alice gave us his reasons why selema is becoming a new political. the rise of china is not against the prevailing
7:09 am
edgemont in the world america but the rise of china is we in the hedge market system itself and 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 they're trying to get stronger and feels more secure they're starting to you can issue tips on the oh they're starting to try to create a consumption class within china itself 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 dependent 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 they're also each other's greatest competitors and this is most
7:10 am
we've seen in the competition for global resources and this has been outlined in strategy peepers in american since the early ninety's where the aim is to prevent the rise of the power by controlling world resource well the u.s. death toll comes on the screw you see in the kaiser report later this hour i have as my safety revealed a destructive straight dwelling through the. wall street. psychological profile of jamie dimon lloyd blankfein goldman sachs j.p. morgan this guy daily is that of the arsonist the arsonist likes to burn things down their pyromaniacs here on wall street if 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
7:11 am
economy like they're doing at this very moment and what is the obama administration 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 this is doa . now it's been described as israel's a big it is a huge facility where it's claimed phone calls and e-mails from all across the middle east and beyond to me most and for intelligence hidden from prying eyes for decades in the desert this is become a focus for investing to this. has more on who's listening in. many israelis have probably driven past year 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

7:13 am
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 haven't heard about a boat i don't know what's the word based refers to exactly what is the reason behind the focus if there is a focus of 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 recently when hey. went public on ash but first surprise was that they could that there was this huge spying facility which will be found the enforcing the politics of the middle east and beyond but then the second great surprise was that

7:15 am
actually brought before the. international court in the hague and investigated the rest of the world would have far more respect for the international process because the moment the most prominent people come before. the. temps a resting place for him to see the current trial that's going on charles taylor from liberia and the past process on the loss of it the situation in yugoslavia went up but the perpetrators of this war. the iraq war are in the united states and in europe and i think it would do an awful lot for the standing of this because there is a bit of a feeding a round ok you go off to big guys in small countries you go after big guys and big countries. again it's
