3:04 pm
to us and now we have to pay a very heavy price of. casualties civilian casualties and also military casualties. yes i think the time has come for the world to understand that this conflict has to come to an end immediately which is very unlikely to happen any time soon when you dug around in these cemeteries to crash while nato has already claimed that the operation to protect civilians must go on with clashes and benghazi and nato intensifying its bombardment of tripoli both eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to say and people are dying on both sides of the frontline many on the ground fear that when the democracy there were talks about will finally come here they will not be enough people left to experience it. or ignore our reporting from western libya. but if you want your say on the situation
3:05 pm

3:06 pm
the white house is standing by its decision to withdraw a large part of the u.s. kerrison from afghanistan barack obama is running up support after announcing the pullout of more than thirty thousand troops by the end of next year france and else says it's also prepared to pull all of its forces out by the same date but the news comes amid warnings from military commanders that progress against the taliban is fragile and reversible really seventy thousand u.s. troops are set to remain in afghanistan with a complete put up promise to take place by twenty fourteen your state secretary has been trying to convince congress that obama's strategy is the right approach to winning the war but he's got to check on reports. clinton faced the difficult task and that is to justify the billions of u.s. taxpayers dollars on the ward that seems to have no end in sight and there was a great deal of skepticism among the senators even amid the announced withdrawal of troops in afghanistan so the secretary of state had to focus on progress accomplished there and did she mention the killing of key al qaeda members also
3:07 pm
that as she said the u.s. has broken the taliban momentum although various reports on the ground suggest the insurgency is not really subsiding there and some even say it's growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by nato strikes doesn't help experts say many of those now fighting against the allied forces in afghanistan are not they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as invaders after one of the recent strikes they killed a significant number of civilians including children even the u.s. backed afghan president karzai had to make a harsh face saving statement warning nato that if they continue killing civilians that the whole of the afghan population will treat them as occupiers actually it's not just the afghan people it's also the neighboring pakistan whose assistance is key to the u.s. efforts and u.s. efforts in afghanistan and nonetheless the secretary of state said the pakistanis would rather see the u.s. leave of ghana's then take a listen but they would be perfectly happy if we picked up and left tomorrow but
3:08 pm
what would we get for it and what would they do with it and i think the answers to those two questions mean that the president's approach which is this steadied careful transition while we try to work the the diplomatic and political piece of this which includes pakistan. is exactly the right way to go and many afghans are actually worried that less troops doesn't necessarily mean less bombs on their homes i mean these upcoming troop withdrawals the u.s. has reportedly stepped up airstrikes including grown strikes in afghanistan is thought to be part of this twenty first. training intelligent war strategy as they call it you know when you have no troops on the ground no deaths of your soldiers to justify back at home so it becomes possible to wage a war without having to face all these accountability in pakistan the u.s. doesn't have puts on the ground but it's chasing suspected terrorists with drone
3:09 pm
strikes and very actively doing so would end up killing most of the three wins in those strikes the pakistanis are furious that they were government is allowing the americans killed there to kill their own people the leaders of doing that in exchange for a view millions of dollars they received from washington and some experts say killing innocent people the u.s. is only going i generate more extremism in the region but that was not one of the issues hillary clinton addressed in her testimony before the senate committee on foreign relations this thursday kind of talking to me a little earlier one of the voice of russia radio has recalled a young he's told me that president obama is scoring political points ahead of his reelection attended by making such announcements if you look at the timeline that president barack obama did announce while he was running for the presidency and it after he said by this time we had to have a troop drawdown but remember he's also running for reelection so there's an issue
3:10 pm
of not only the safety of u.s. . troops there there's also the point is being reelected in twenty twelve and the overall issue of money being spent there so there's about three things that he's had to deal with and announcing mr other critics of the obama administration have said that despite how many people that he the president is going to. draw about there will always be there may be a u.s. presence in afghanistan for decades to come. coming up in just over an hour's time marty talks to afghan human rights champion malalai joya she claims the u.s. led occupation of our country has thrown the afghan people from the frying pan into the fire. they removed it brought in power difficult the taliban as the by the situation getting worse and millions are part of gone by the presence of concerns cows and stripes in afghanistan they suffer from injustice insecurity
3:11 pm
joblessness polity and now of course this town is the second most corrupt country and of course more than sixty million dollars in she received from the so-called international community and in the end of the construction of afghanistan schools are funds. but most of these money when people park across these while lost family are comic as they himself corruption a star from the palace and to the small. part finality live below the poverty line like i did while it is against the increasing more and more intense outcomes in south innocent people has become most common in children there are close enough. democracy never come by military invasion democracy never come by cluster bomb by white phosphorus by muscle car by bombing our wedding party. politician here bill this is being requested over charges of inciting hate and

discrimination he faced five separate counts for the controversial speech he gave attacking and comparing it to nazis and the court ruled his comments fell within the boundaries of legitimate political debate and member of the european parliament phillip a close he's told me that the verdict will destroy is a victory for the freedom of expression. this is very important not just for here truth but for freedom of speech in itself i think you cannot have a working democracy a functioning democracy if you don't have freedom of speech and certainly as a member of parliament various and everyone else should have the right to speak freely and openly problems like mass immigration is a miser and multiculturalism you know we've always been told that multiculturalism in was going to be great and was going to solve a lot of problems on the contrary it has become a problem in itself and it's very important that everyone should be able to you know put forward his own solutions to the problem and that it is balanced and free

a surprise announcement that sixty million barrels of oil would be released from strategic reserves this will come from the u.s. with other major economies providing the rest the move is intended to offset the loss of loss of production from living here which is currently engulfed in civil war big parsons head of research at national australia bank explains why he thinks the i.a.e.a. has taken this rather unusual step. two reasons the first of these relates to the global economy and bear in mind that central banks around the world central banks and governments alike fairly alarmed at the prospect of rising inflation and oil prices are a major contributor a factor here they certainly don't want to drive their economies back into recession. by overtightening interest rates in order to deal with inflation so working directly at the root cause of these price increases i think is a very very shrewd move so the first reason is because they're concerned with
3:23 pm
inflation i think the second reason is also to show the balance of power across the world doesn't lie entirely without break and i think the opec decision fifteen days ago that was taken not to increase production i think did actually upset many people around the world so partly it's about power it's also about inflation. now looking at the equity markets the u.s. markets are trading negatively in response to the prediction of far greater unemployment than was initially anticipated and european markets closed trading on a negative note also with the decks and the footsie both well over one point five percent in the red line is and down as well the dancer and blanco are losing two percent and banks also down with lloyds three percent and. and here in russia the plummeting oil price dragged the markets down with the r.t.s. closing over two and a half percent in the red. looking at some individual shares on the my sex energy majors were among the main losers with lukoil down almost one percent banking
