saddam did to go publicly and run the since the colonel was her job as a retreat. washington takes the first step to approving the long awaited deal to increase the u.s. debt limit just a day before a potential devastating default. the destiny of the bill is now in the hands of the u.s. senate after months of political bickering will it be enough to avert a national crisis. global stocks rally as a self-imposed crisis in america is a verb it but confidence in the u.s. economy's reputation as the world's creditor has been severely damaged. russia says you want action could help bring an end to violence in syria but once again successive measures that could lead to a libya style intervention experts stress the e.u. what american sanctions being enforced against a mask just the only making matters worse. the voices of tens of thousands of

anti-government protesters in east row calling for the prime minister to stand down are going on reported by the international media. and in business russian equity markets open lower wage by energy and banking stocks that's despite positive news from the u.s. warning what's causing the downfall business bulletin and threatening that. well just after eleven am here in the russian. capital you're washing our teeth thanks for joining us now the lower chamber of the u.s. congress has passed a last minute deal to prevent a devastating full scale default after months long political confrontation well the only remaining hurdle for the legislation is senate approval which is expected later on it tuesday well are to visit washington with more. not
3:04 am
a lot of good news in terms of the big picture for the u.s. economy of course the only thing that we can be certain of that this deal means is that it averts the self imposed potential crisis of a u.s. default what we do know in this legislation is it does sort of cut spending by about two point four trillion dollars over the next decade what that means in the short term for the u.s. economy is potentially a lot of willing of growth now we have to keep in mind that the unemployment rates are still astronomically high at nine point two percent and so a lot of economists are saying this is not really the time to be cutting the spending this whole battle over the debt limit is kind of a proxy war an ideological proxy war between the republicans in congress and the democrats in congress what we saw with the past election is the rise of the so-called tea party wing of the republican party and ideologically what a lot of those folks want is they want a lot of major cuts in government spending almost no government spending with the
3:05 am
exception occasionally on defense they also want to lower tax rates they believe that this is the way to really stimulate the economy now this is diametrically opposed to the democrats' worldview the democrats argued for you know closing tax loopholes on for example corporations and other like companies they want to tax reform they want to social spending for the poor and they don't want middle class americans low class americans to sort of face the brunt of of the economics just a crisis but really what this is all about and of course we wouldn't have seen this whole fight connected to the debt limit if republicans didn't want to make a political point and we have to keep in mind. the two thousand and twelve election is coming up for both the congress and of course president obama and a lot of political analysts are saying this is just another way for the republicans to try to embarrass the president to make them look bad the irony in all this is that neither the left and nor the right really liked what came out of the deal at
3:06 am
the end we saw one democrat said that this is a sugar coated satan sandwich left in a bun and nobody likes what they see and of course by creating the special commission that will sort of figure out where to cut spending over the next few months that issue is still going to come up right in time for the elections so no one really wins in this deal well it's a position shared by jason johnson a professor of political science who says washington and the president have little to celebrate who wants to claim victory or a force for good and that's all that's left of congress's approval ratings have dropped to twenty percent the president's approval ratings have dropped no one wants to claim victory at all but no one is really happy with it so you're not you're a hero or you're going to hear a lot of people so pretty well where an overt you're going to hear people saying let's move forward and try to get their over policies through before the end of the year it's going to be a huge impact on two thousand and twelve at least in the short term or overall it's a writer who's one of the who are raising ever yet strangely still have
3:07 am
a higher rating now because reagan did at this point it has to be at this point is who are going to be harder so he can recover if you can reassert leadership and do something about the economy is still sixteen months away because it has got to do something to reinspire the public because this was the first of. all the risk of america's possible self-imposed default has resonated far and wide with the global stocks rallying following the house vote but artie's appreciate a reports of the spike the immediate economic relief more voices calling to replace the dollar as the world currency are being heard. chinese newspapers are calling this entire u.s. debt deal debate irresponsible and even immoral so although people are celebrating the fact that this did pass there is a lot of cautious optimism here what's important to know. about the interest in what's going on in the united states that is held by asian countries china being
3:08 am
number one szczepan being number two so confidence has really gone down here the another thing that a lot of people are worried about is the fact that two point four trillion dollars is said to be cut in the united states spending but a lot of that hasn't been decided and seeing as how long it took for the jet deal to be finalized a lot of people are worried about whether or not the spending will actually become another sort of political game many critics of this deal are saying that this isn't going to do anything to help american unemployment which directly impacts the asian economy as well as you know asia is the manufacturing center of the world so if the unemployment problem isn't solved in the united states that also means that consumer confidence goes down for america and that means that they're not going to be buying exports from asia so that can really impact. people's jobs here in this continent so people are definitely worried there's also been a lot of talk about the fact that the dollar has been at some of the lowest rates
3:09 am
we've seen and in the past year and so there has been a lot of muttering here in about perhaps an alternative reserve currency or perhaps looking into a basket current the including japan and china as well. russia is keeping a close eye on washington's political struggle to resolve the crisis and prime minister vladimir putin says the american economy stays risk despite the deal which means washington can no longer be a symbol of economic stability around the world. actually there's nothing good about it just this boom system it was. fourteen trillion noble means that the country has been living on credit which is really bad for one of the world's leading economies this means they live beyond their means of putting the entire economy to some extent they sponge on the world's economy and on them on a police state dollar positions this means that firstly the reserve currency should
3:10 am
show up in the world not just the dollar and the euro should be consolidated and you should come up with a regional reserve currencies the ruble can become a regional reserve currency. and coming up ahead on the program go unreported voices. i haven't seen anyone from c.n.n. or fox news or any other big news channel here and it's really sad we also deserve a chance to be heard out of tens of thousands of israelis demanding that their government stands down says that the national media is turning its back on the country's problems. the reports are coming in of dozens more protests or deaths at the hands of government forces in syria and moscow says the limited un security council action could bring a quote good results in helping stop the ongoing violence in the country but russia's un envoy vitaly churkin wars that any measures must be restricted to
3:11 am
solving not aggravating the conflict that the security council has held a close to emergency session on syria that's ahead reports government forces there killed over one hundred protesters on sunday moscow has already issued its strongest condemnation of the violence calling on both sides of the conflict to refrain from using force russia has been a cautious about international action on syria fearing a repeat of what it calls the violation of the un mandate on libya well on monday the e.u. slapped a fresh round of sanctions on damascus and washington is also calling for action against president bashar al assad's regime but a former u.k. ambassador to syria told r.t. that internal developments in the country are likely to oust the leader. the economic sanctions are not of themselves going to bring down but what will undermine him over time is the fact that the economy is collapsing it is
3:12 am
a truism of syrian politics that if he loses the sunni middle class support from damascus and aleppo to a lesser extent. he will not be able to maintain his hold on power and when they see that the road he is leading them down is leading to economic disaster then they are more likely to turn against him the moment he has talked about reform but not done anything he's talked about checking the security state but in fact is unleashed it i don't see that intervention militarily would be anything other than disastrous within syria all syrians would object to that would be the one thing that might unite all syrians behind the government in fact. so i don't see any prospect of it a western officials have ruled out military intervention in syria but economic sanctions against a baskets are being stepped up middle east expert joshua landis thinks this will
3:13 am
eventually backfire on the syrian people. all of the syrian opposition leaders who have met. elected executive committees have all demand that there be no foreign intervention now of course foreign intervention is a very broad and gray area there's military intervention like libya but there's also economic strangulation could come along the united states already has sanctions fairly severe sanctions on syria the west feels it needs to do something it doesn't want to stop trade you know we've tried sanctions in iraq iran libya they haven't worked very much and when they work they starve the people not the government and that's the danger of sanctions they feel good because you feel like you're doing something and you could tell the opposition you're on their side but they in fact they often hurt the people you don't want to hurt and of course we're following all the events taking place in the middle east where the unrest continues
3:14 am
you can go to our website that's our team dot com to get the latest news updates and the videos and waiting for the right now egyptian police clash with activists of the long stand lasting demonstration on cairo so we're square trying to disperse those angry at the interim government for a lack of political improvement. and also on our web site a hacker group hijacked the twitter page of the whole region mass murderer and there's a brave big claim of the breach was an attempt to undermine the killers on my posts and his ideological statements. and wild west meets the east of russia where people turn into cowboys and indians at the start of the annual cowboy festival.
3:15 am
the suspect arrested in connection with an explosion that took place at a kindergarten in eastern russia which left one girl injured has confessed to the crime police are questioning the twenty eight year old whose name wasn't disclosed in the interest of the ongoing investigation well the blast wounded a five year old pupil who noticed a small box decorated with a ribbon on the terrace of a kindergarten in the city of qom some. reports say the ball was packed with a also and other small metal objects leaving her with multiple cuts and severe burns local authorities are treating the assault as a terrorist attack. and on the way back to the front line after two decades we'll find out why the us build a multi-billion dollar deal to supply a russian helicopters to afghan security forces. any israel foreign media are being accused of burning their has in the sand over coverage of
3:16 am
the biggest antigovernment protests the country has seen in decades while tens of thousands of people fed up with the teary rating living standards are staging the demonstrations calling for prime minister benjamin netanyahu to stand down as artie's policy or reports from tel aviv protesters voices are simply going on heard by the rest of the world. tens of thousands on the streets of israel angry and protesting for change but is anyone listening when it comes to a lot of the foreign media want to see more of an action movie and this has been very violent it's been very hadn't been violent at all it's been very positive. well into week three the largest demonstration in israel in over a decade and how did a.b.c. c.b.s. and n.b.c. cover it they didn't a younger woman set up the tent while the editors of france twenty four b.b.c. and sky coughed up just a few meager seconds perhaps not even that interesting. you know back
3:17 am
in the studios ok there's a protest well what exactly is a protest a social protest for the revolution it's not the same kind of story that they used and it's not as big and dramatic some of the bigger revolutions happening around the middle east and i mean isn't surprised by the worldwide lack of media interest he's worked in the israeli press for decades reporting from media both foreign and local there is a box that the international media has put israel in and the israeli palestinian conflict or so the israeli lebanese and. syrian conflict and anything that doesn't kind of fit into that is not the immediate type of of news item which is unfortunate mistreats has been dubbed top corner by some of the people here and optimism perhaps that they can bring down the government in the way they made it into his square. but what is the plan was they were willing nonstop here they put
3:18 am
you up so that just makes hundred reyes and others angry for nine days she's been camping here furious that she can't make ends meet as a university student it makes me feel sad that when egypt decided to stand up and say we've had enough and in lebanon they've decided to say we've had enough the media was all over there i haven't seen anyone from c.n.n. or fox news or any other you know big news channel here and it's really sad we also deserve a chance to be heard out but according to independent media consultant jeremy rudin the protestors need to be patient has really reached international proportions yet it's either the government is falling this is like an inside. story and that is a bit of a problem when you're looking from overseas trying to figure out what to cover it's not that you know the economy is collapsing but long before the economy collapses
3:19 am
the protesters him might have to throw in the tome because as demonstrators have learned to run the world without the international press and without the pressure of foreign governments the protest can go only so far to see on t.v. television is a barrier to her. oh. well blogger danny schechter says that the reality of life unease roll off and goes unnoticed because the contrie only attracts coverage for its role in conflicts. many americans think somehow the israeli government is very popular the leaders of israel are to get a lot of attention in the american media israel is presented almost as a monolithic country when it's actually an extremely divided country a massive protest of the kind we've seen in israel about you just the economic realities that people there are experiencing is something americans have no understanding of because there's no context in the reporting israel's only reported
3:20 am
in the context of its conflict with iran or its conflict with palestinians the actual reality of life in israel and what's happening to people there and how this right wing government in israel is handling the economy is something that we never really hear about whatsoever it's a very unstable situation the economy there is very unstable as well you know when you look at the middle east generally speaking they talk only about the arab countries only they have internal the discord never hear about israel's internal discord and the fact that this uprising essentially is taking place in israel while the same time as one going on in syria this one going on in egypt you know shows that the same pressures are you know being experienced by israeli people as well which is inflation economic pressure food prices rising oh all
3:21 am
kinds of economic uncertainty. well more news is coming from where the prime minister has announced he is ready to discuss israeli borders with palestinians benjamin netanyahu has agreed to negotiate a possible return to pre-one nine hundred sixty seven territory lawns lees well has been occupying land in the west bank for palestinians hope to build their own state since the six day war over forty years ago peace talks over borders have been stalled since last september due to construction of jewish settlements in the area . afghan officials say at least four people were killed and ten wounded in a suicide bombing in northern afghanistan when an attacker blew himself up at a local guesthouse two other insurgents broke in and engaged police in a two hour shootout well this comes two days after eleven people were killed in an assault on a police headquarters in the south of the country. japan's energy

hundred people. well a legendary russian military helicopter which has been in service for decades is coming back to the front line and that's got a step well the u.s. has bought over a dozen choppers from russia for the afghan security forces are. reports. i've got it's is the nickname soviet soldiers gave to the strong standing wind of afghanistan over twenty years ago they regarded as their main enemy as they struggled through air missions over high mountains in extreme weather now it's you see these the soviet designed am i seventeen which made its name as afghan and survivors. the engine if this helicopter i mean not to be the most advanced but it's well protected from the destructive sound unlike many of its alternative is very powerful and perfect for the extreme climate of afghanistan it will be able
3:24 am
to operate here for about twenty five years. the u.s. led mission in afghanistan will end soon when nato troops go the only seventeen's will make it come back to face the afghan is winds once again russia will ship twenty one helicopters to afghanistan to help the country's security in years and pilots work together to perfect and ease operating of m y seventeen and while it seems quantum physics to me afghan pilots already familiar with the machine many of them trained under soviet air force instructors even now twenty years later speak perfect russian you know. i graduated from a pilot school in the russian city of christendom in one thousand nine hundred four when i got back to afghanistan to serve in the army we only had soviet aircraft those machines were the best to get to the most difficult and isolated parts of the country regrets that the u.s. will be for afghanistan's m.-i seventeen's something which put american helicopter
3:25 am
manufacturers in a spin with congress using russian military aircraft the countries had. plenty of helping hands after the soviet invasion russia provided millions of dollars worth of military hardware and a ten billion dollars to the us or so are now the deal was sealed russian engineers are working to assemble the helicopters the m i seventeen is proof that military might doesn't always mean advanced technology as long as it's got the tough stuff for the terrain and they've beaten they've got it's wins before and then we go r.t. doesn't. add up next all the latest business with kareena. our welcome to our business up that this hour the united states may have avoided defaulting on its debts but that has created little optimism on the market instead investor focusing on the poor state of the world economy also adding concern is the
3:26 am
fact that washington will be cutting spending by two and a half trillion dollars over the next ten years. with these due in plays we're going to see some significant cuts in public spending in the second half of gear exactly at a time when the u.s. economy is slowing down so obviously reply some good old. divisions in good old united states and united states is the biggest economy in the world i think that there were some good old divisions in the world and in such kind if you want one usually russia doesn't do very well we have done a couple of calculations we estimate that if. growth united states for example was used to do by one percent growth in russia could actually suffer by two percentage points which is not non-trivial nontrivial impact. looking at the markets all prices are under pressure following a disappointing record on u.s. manufacturing that pulls that concern over crude demand light sweet is currently trading below ninety five dollars per barrel while brant is losing twenty six cents and is trading at one hundred sixteen dollars

3:28 am
start of the trading session. now mark i have seen metropole believes investors will be focused on the other side of atlantic key indicators about the health of the world economy. a lot of this was going to the sidelines particular during the second part of the week. anticipating the u.s. labor market reading on friday morning and this statistics that that's been coming out of an ice age is been painting a mixed picture and that's why i think a lot of into investors are going to be trying to stay in the sidelines until at least this number comes out and particular this is going to coupled with a seasonal slowdown in august so when a lot of investors given all the uncertainties in the market prefer to sort of stand aside lawns and take conservative positions but i mean we're still in the bull market and this is just the pause and i think now when we pause in the good
