3:07 am
is key to economic growth so they don't want to see the rich becoming richer and the poor becoming more of that gap widening therefore they don't want to sacrifice stability in their pursuit of their economic goals for more insight now i'm joined by mark matrona from goldman sachs asia thank you very much for joining us now we have seen that the consensus from the brics summit how do you think their consensus is going to impact the comic and political fallout i think this is a very positive development so well so i think the fact that these five major economies across all major of consonance the world now comes together i quit my passion is very positive this being a general. understanding of the rise of the economic power of the poor countries and also now with africa included it's the rise of these five areas and so i think europe and the us have been acutely aware of the the never simple economic strength and rising strength of these areas and thinking carefully on how to how to interact
3:08 am
and deal with it but it's it's it's a reality thank you very much to these a country certainly looking for more cooperation and coordination economically but also politically correct that we all five countries are members of you i think you would acknowledge that we do want to see more. powerful and therefore they want to be a pursuit again economic power in line with their political problems. and more on the challenges the global financial system is facing later this hour here on r t. brazil russia india china and south africa say it's time for leadership of the i.m.f. and world bank to work black changes of the global economy a transformation from club based to all inclusive. with me i can't even explain what i felt inside when i met him he gave me goosebumps when i saw him that's how russian bombshell describes how she fell under the charms of know what

3:10 am
alarming other parts of libya isn't in the western part of libya. in order to help them win what is the civil war the original reason that was given for britain being involved was simply to stop those airstrikes on benghazi and indeed regionally this was marketed to the public and to the world at large as being simply the enforcement of a no fly zone that is not what is now happening and indeed it isn't what's been happening really from that first week on words. western backed away to call changes in the arab world would create a batterer environment for al qaida that's the view of former cia counterterrorism analysts i call sure who told r.t. of the western hopes for a democratic middle east are in a. i think the end of the tyrannies in the middle east they're creating an environment in which islamised groups whether it's al qaeda or any of its allies
3:11 am
will be able to operate much more easily and with with much less pressure from security services the successor governments aren't going to be as effective and they're not and they're going to be more islamic i don't think they're going to be fundamentalists they're not really we're not really worried about al-qaeda taking over any particular government but we're going to have a situation where operationally it's much easier for these groups to exist to train and to plan and mrs clinton is really a fan to says she really believes somehow that this is going to be a secular democratic revolution in it's as far away from that is it possibly could be. levy and nights in terror into a goldmine for private security firms reports say that the u.k. is already hiring mercenaries to protect the interests of the big corporations they are once colonel gadhafi goes but there are fears there checkered history in previous interventions could turn the civil war a foreign country into a proper wild west artie's a war and it has more. homeless and displaced people disrupted water

hand private security is i think. libya increasingly looks like being a volatile state good while to come and new conflict zone means a new cash cow for private security companies the reality of modern warfare is that private contractors are now doing the work so military force is used to do without many of the rules and regulations that govern army engagements that could mean a new round of human rights violations in unstable country and while it would be libya that would bear the brunt of that cost for security contractors it only brings in more business. on the latest edition of crossfire people of the on his guest explore how western powers orchestrating foreign politics may now be skating on thin ice. that's coming to fifteen minutes time. the west has got to understand that if they go in premature it will go image in countries and
