in the mid february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of libya the villagers know about being new and very new so they will not be. where you are again it's. about freedom and democracy there is no freedom or democracy they just want to bury the refugees here say they now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in the air strike in cold until even government officials a bomb landed on the private compound and flattened it killing fifteen people including three kids we have been calling for peace and negotiation for months and no one wants to listen to us now we have to pay a very heavy price of. casualties civilian casualties and also military
3:02 pm
casualties 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 the new dog ground in the symmetry still fresh well made too has already claimed the two your peroration to protect civilians must go on with clashes containing and benghazi and nato intensifying its bombardment of tripoli but is eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to say and people are dying on both sides of the front line many on the ground fear that when the democracy the west talks about will finally come here they'll last me enough people left to experience it. r.t. reporting from western libya. well if you want your say on the situation in libya go online and take part in our poll there on screen you can see that today we're asking why you think the libyan campaign is. failing to succeed so far the most
3:03 pm
popular view is that libyan support betrayed him you can change your opinion on the subject. also online at the moment. prevent a major accident with another plane at new york's j.f.k. airport you can check out the recordings of the crew on you tube channel. four news today. these are the images. from the street. operations the day. the white house is standing by its decision to withdraw a large part of the u.s. garrison from afghanistan barack obama is running up support after announcing the
3:04 pm
pullout of more than thirty thousand troops by the end of next year france 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 nearly seventy thousand u.s. troops are set to remain in afghanistan with a complete promise to take place by twenty fourteen u.s. state secretary has been trying to convince congress that obama's strategy is the right approach to winning the war. on reports. clinton faced a difficult task and that is to justify the billions of u.s. taxpayers dollars on the war that seems to have no and insight 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 podhoretz accomplished and there and did she mention the killing of key al qaeda members also 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
3:05 pm
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 al qaida they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as invaders after one of the recent strikes that 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 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 to u.s. efforts in afghanistan and nonetheless the secretary of state said the pakistanis would rather see the u.s. leave afghanistan take a listen they would be perfectly happy if we picked up and left tomorrow but what would we get for it and what would they do with it and i think the answers to those
3:06 pm
two questions mean that the president's approach which is this steady 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 many afghans are actually worried that less troops doesn't necessarily mean less bombs on their homes i mean these upcoming trip was across the u.s. as were part of the stepped up airstrikes including drone strikes in afghanistan is thought to be part of this twenty first. training talent into war strategy as they call it you know when you have no troops on the ground no deaths of your soldiers to just to fly 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 to it's on the ground but it's chasing suspected terrorists with drone strikes and very actively doing so it ends up killing mostly sebelius in those strikes the pakistanis are furious that their government is allowing the americans

killed there to kill their own people they their leaders doing that in exchange for billions of dollars they received from washington some experts say by killing innocent people the u.s. is only going to 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. talking to me a little earlier on the voice of russia radio host ricardo young he's told me that president obama is scoring political points ahead of his reelection attempt by making such announcements if you look at the timeline that president barack obama did announce while he was running for the presidency and a bit 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 of not only the safety of u.s. combat troops there there's also the point of is being reelected in twenty twelve
3:08 pm
and the overall issue of money being spent there so there's about three things that he's had to deal with in announcing this drawdown critics of the obama administration have said that despite how many people that he the president is going to. withdraw all 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 a country has thrown the afghan people from the frying pan into the fire. they removed it brought in power difficult the taliban as dubai this situation getting wallsend million south going by presence often suffer thousands troops in afghanistan they suffer from injustice insecurity corruption joblessness poor and now afghanistan is the second most corrupt country and of course more than sixty two billion dollars in she received from the so-called international community

loss of loss of production from libya which is currently engulfed in civil war nick parsons head of research at national australia bank explains why he thinks the i.a.e.a. has taken this problem in usual step. boeing has two reasons the first of these relates to the global economy and bear in mind the central banks around the world central banks and governments alike but fairly alarmed at the prospect of rising inflation and the 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 inflation i think the second reason is also to show the balance of power across the world doesn't lie entirely with opec and i think the opec decision fifteen days ago
3:21 pm
