crossroads of osama bin laden the reason for the u.s. invasion of afghanistan is gone and now the world is waiting to see if his death will bring about change and how america handles the driving conflict. as tribes in libya are seemingly getting nato nowhere the possibility of a ground attack looming ever more but experts say this most the alliance is planned all along. and the likes of legislation and authorities in decisive actions against pedophiles in russia means many parents resort to a doctor a vigilante justice. worldwide
news live from the heart of moscow this is a hearty welcome to the program rather the symbolic reason for the u.s. presence in afghanistan has gone with the fall of osama bin laden the question is whether america is going to stick to its war plan this summer u.s. forces just are pulling out from the country but there are fears the recent milestone may put the brakes on the withdrawal. porton i reports people are already asking if bin laden's death was indeed a victory. nine and a half years on the war in afghanistan has grown visibly worse while u.s. rhetoric surrounding it has consistently spun in circles we are making progress that is what it was unable to make the progress that we had made and i think it's possible that by the end of this year a year. since two thousand and three washington has repeatedly proclaimed turning
points for a conflict that critics call failing the. reality is that things are still mean that things are worse than they were this time last year every year we send more troops there every year as we spend more money and. the insurgency grows and size karzai government gets weaker and the violence gets worse nearly fifteen hundred u.s. soldiers and ten thousand afghan civilians have been killed in a war costing america two billion dollars per week meanwhile after assassinating the man it's been hunting since two thousand and one the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden i disconnect between what the u.s. says and what the world sees may have deeper a defining moment in the war against al qaeda the war on terrorism between the head of the snake effectively you have this aging sickly old man who really hasn't
done anything of real political significance for a long time and the great it's kind of triumph against evil that the western leaders are really kind of starting to trumpet at the moment. bush before him turned. into this kind of symbol of evil following the nine eleven attacks is actually more a creation of the west than he is a real political kind of terrorist threats in himself u.s. officials branded good lodgings killing as a success and strategic blow to al qaeda it is going to have i think very important reverberations through. the area on the other side of network in that area and i think you're going to see them start eating themselves from within more and more this as some see the u.s. turning and spinning fiction into fact you know afghanistan itself it's not going to have that much of a role we're fighting taliban for the afghan taliban in afghanistan we're not
fighting you have a new generation of young radicals who have grown up watching these wars over the past ten years that are far more radical than their predecessors osama bin laden claimed responsibility for the nine eleven attacks that killed nearly three thousand people and devastated new york city nearly ten years later his death is being reported as a victory for the u.s. all the work that america waged to get him still struggles to find a conclusion. hartstein new york. when i was the first time for the united states to pull all of its troops from afghanistan and rethink its anti terror tactics so says katrina vanden heuvel editor of the u.s. based magazine the nation. it's an important moment to consider where we go from here and in my view this isn't a moment of opportunity. to end the war in afghanistan to bind an expeditious
end to this war and in to do the tough regional international diplomacy as required terrorism as an odious tactic you cannot reach war against a tactic intelligent policing intelligence diplomacy counter terrorism i do think we will see a shift and that is celebrating. the counterinsurgency tactics that have been. what general petraeus and others have tried to impose our policies in afghanistan will now take a backseat counterterrorism has worked and i think we see the cost of a land war that even secretary of defense robert gates said it was quite a few weeks ago any advisor would visor president committed to lend or should have is not exempt i think it is a moment to reappraise that national security template in this country which is not made this country saper or more secure. so what will bin laden's death really mean for the stability of the region and for the wider world that's the question being discussed by his guests on today's crosstalk that's coming our way at five thirty
g.m.t. . thirty thousand civilians have died in the last ten years in crisis i'm just hungry your attacks so i don't see this being in any way a success even though it was a somewhat lardons killing will probably generate more and more such attacks and if you if you look at the kind of flux obama is saying that this could be for a gonna sound and that doesn't make any sense either because osama bin laden has been a man on the run he sees god nor provisional capabilities not been involved in battle he's not been involved in any way in the only in the liberation war in afghanistan and when i was reading the papers today in pakistan. and the statement by one of the spokesmen of the afghan taliban. saying that they were actually surprised that osama bin laden was actually alive or to know.
what's coming your way in about three hours time here and i see now it's only world host the next major international meeting on libya leaders from nato and the arab league will gather this thursday and plan the political transition following the departure or ousting of libyan leader moammar gadhafi and his stalemate grips libya a nato spokesman says the use of ground troops may be the only way to move the situation for. a real bombardments of libya's reach to according to nato libya's leader colonel gadhafi years dug in defensive positions meanwhile civilian casualties from allied bombing continue to mount and nato spokesman review this solution send did ground troops. the u.n. security council should adopt a new resolution on libya was a little nine hundred seventy three there's not invisible man operations we need
a new resolution. and forces planned that all along says a leading u.s. law professor early what we're seeing unfold here in libya is a pre existing war player by nato by the british by the french by the americans who care move here everything now is going according to plan which is why i believe that since they have failed to our polls could our fee with these steps are so far the next stage will be moving into a ground invasion nato powers have jukes the international community into supporting the war and that's one author protecting civilians was the claim that grabbing the country's resources is the real goal this is one of the most the. reason transgressions of the rights of nation national sovereignty and international law we've seen in the post world war two period the west the u.s.
and france and britain have been called berkeley according to the evidence that's leaking out covertly arming the opposition to gadhafi in hopes of grabbing the control of the oil and the different parts of libya the libyan government promise is still for nato if it sends in ground troops some agree such a war may be tougher than expected that we will see increased. iranian air but also on the ground and maybe this will solve the problem from a speck of nato countries or maybe. the one who. bombing from thirty thousand feet the coalition soldiers feel fairly safe but then see what activists want putting troops on the ground risks not just more civilian killing but many deaths as well the further away they get from high. tech and the nearer they get to low tech then the greater the danger of casualties on both sides turkey china and russia who will criticize the bombardment of libya for minister
sergey lavrov thinks nato has already gone far beyond the first u.n. resolution to maintain a no fly zone he hits a second resolution to move in ground troops may not come as easy now several nations feel tricked. if anybody wants to ask for this monday it will come to the u.n. security council we will discuss trying to understand what was planned because that integration is from a mandate that we are seeing now are enough to learn lessons with international opposition on the rois and the two states face an open field told to make a case for more war while britain's prime minister will dealt big ground troops to libya he's defeated sixty three admitted to polo but they played exactly that but you have members good at the number of civilian deaths from. the drug likely to welcome escalation of the conflict the new bush your party london well meantime british politician john barrow who was among those who voted against intervention
in libya he says that nato could have done more to resolve the conflict before starting the operation you can watch artie's interview in about twenty minutes time but here's a preview. this is where the if you like the vagueness of the resolution kicks in because it does talk about him forcing a no fly zone and protecting civilians and using all necessary measures to implement that policy could theoretically include that when the syrian neighbors improves attacking. and patrols and in tripoli is a baseball and i think we have got to be very careful before you commit troops. you've got to make sure you put moral high ground you've got to make sure that it is the measure of last resort where all other avenues of negotiations have been exhausted and i'm not sure we met those criteria when it came to libya as well so i think lessons still need to be learned and i'm afraid.
it would r.t. live from the russian capital now moscow what's going to ease that u.s. missile interceptors in eastern europe will not pose a threat to russia this comes as romania and as plans to host one of america's anti missile defense shield. explains moscow's concerns. most case calling for legal assurances from washington that is here to missile defense shield winds target o.b.'s threats to russia's strategic be careful says now this comes of yesterday's announcement by the remaining is going to haze a u.s. short range missile interceptor system all one of its bases does the first such deployment in europe it is actually remain is actually plan b. full the u.s. there were previous plans to host a similar long range missile interceptor and poland but now these plans are scraps by the a bomb the administration and two thousand and nine off to russia placed in

in russia in a country where seventy percent of paedophiles up and rolled with their virginity turia fanned vigilante justice is often used as an attorney to court of law for all who go with him lynching is ill admissible but it starts with the state fails if poor mothers and fathers knew that offenders would get fifteen years in prison or more would be castrated before being released would never be released without a satellite tracking chip as in the usa the police are no doubt their every step i'm pretty sure they would not kill them. there have been numerous attempts to toughen the laws on paedophiles in russia in a decade dozens of bills stipulate in chemical castration a life imprisonment has been discussed by this t. duma but not a single one has passed the morgue for paedophiles aren't without support in russia disney and some police officers who receive money for allowing brother walls and
dance to operate of the court system acquitted the criminals and i am not only talking about the child porn industry there is so much money in so many people involved in this corruption this evil is to hard to fight but some don't give up and fight their own war so he's hiding his face he says the country's paedophiles on hunting for him killer and information from east papers m.t.v. has created an online tree to file database with child draw files and forto. in ninety percent of cases child abuse is real. people should know who they are they should know what they look like they should be on alert sergei says in the thirteen years he's been working on the site and not a single official has taken any interest in his plight and with better they do have far greater databases but just don't want to open them up we did what they should have done sex offenders here are divided into categories from those serving
sentences to those deceased but there are many who are martyrs at large or wanted at terrifying forward for parents everywhere. every day some six the children become victims of paedophiles. in the two weeks we've been working on this report more than eight hundred kids have been abused for years russian legislators have been talking about protecting children but for each day they claim to act even more innocent lives of the story. now see more. you can always find much more news on our web site of course that's marty talk on along with expert opinions on blogs the best video clips just a glance a couple of our top online stories right now and under the cover of night thousands of troops tanks and heavy artillery rolled into the center of moscow this russian general support everything is ready for the capital's upcoming
