in india g.'s available in the movie joint b. that shows the a movie that's a great way to go to the grand imperial truly george was the good girl and you can oh well it's a little close mission viejo civility to go and clear on this in the can it was that you know as you're a treat. washington takes the first step to approving the long awaited deal to increase the u.s. debt limit just a day before a full tensional 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 financial crisis. global stocks rally as the self-imposed crisis in america is averted but confidence in the u.s. economy's reputation as the world's creditor has been severely down. russia says u.n. action could help bring an end to violence in syria the wars against excessive
4:01 am
pressures that could lead to a libya style intervention experts stress the e.u. when the american sanctions are being enforced against the fastest are only making matters worse. and the voices of tens of thousands of anti-government protesters in ease row calling for the prime minister to stand down are going on reported by the international media. just after twelve noon here in the russian capital you're watching r.t. now the lower chamber of the u.s. congress has passed a last minute deal to prevent a devastating a full scale default that's after months long political confrontation where the only remaining hurdle for the legislation is senate approval which is expected later on tuesday well archy's lucy capital it is in washington with more. not
4:02 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 a 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 stifling 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 and we have to keep in mind that 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
4:03 am
to try to embarrass the president to make them look bad the irony in all of this is that neither the left and nor the right really liked what came out of the deal at the end we saw one democrat said that this is a sugar coated satan sandwich you look at the bun and nobody likes what they see that 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. while the compromise agreed in washington comes just in time to prevent an immediate catastrophe the national analyst max keiser believes it won't be enough to persuade rating agencies to lead america keep its precious triple a credit score. u.s. treasury bond market will be downgraded it will no longer carry the aaa rating no matter what they decide and this is exactly what wall street banks want you don't make much money trading aaa rated u.s.
4:04 am
government debt most of the economy in america over fifty percent of the economy is tied to investment banking and wall street trading so they control the g.d.p. for them to continue to make money they need to look for new business new revenue is turning america's aaa rating to junk will make them many many billions of dollars in fees it's just simple economics and simple business just follow the money of the folks on wall street the american public by the juggler and they get to keep squeezing until they end up putting another fifty or sixty million of people permanently into poverty and just destroy this economy what obama needs to do if you're working in the interest of the people would be to nationalize j.p. morgan and goldman sachs immediately fire these strokes and start all over again because you've got a predatory monopolist down there in los trade who's interested in wiping out the middle class for a quick buck and that is tyranny of the risk of america's possible self-imposed
4:05 am
defaults has resonated far and wide with global stocks rallying following the house vote but artie's british leader reports that despite the media 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 but it's important to note they have a huge vested interest in what's going on in the united states that is held by asian countries china being number one shipping and being number two so confidence has really gone down here many critics of this deal are thing that this isn't going to do anything to help american unemployment which directly impacts the asian economy is all as you know asia is the manufacturing center of the world so if the unemployment problem isn't solved in the united states but also means that consumer confidence goes down for america god means that they're not going to be buying

4:08 am
damascus and aleppo to a lesser extent. he will not be able to maintain his hold on power and when they see the road he's leading them down he's 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 as 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 the baskets are being stepped up middle east expert trashmore
4:09 am
landis thinks these measures will eventually back far on the syrian people. all of the syrian opposition leaders who have met send and elected executive committees have all commanded there be no foreign intervention now of course foreign intervention is a very broad and gray area there is military intervention likely up but there is also economic strangulation of a country which might 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 in iran libya they haven't worked very much and when they have work they starve the people and not the government and that's the danger of sanctions if they feel good because you feel like you're doing something and you could tell you opposition you're on their side but in fact they are going to hurt the people you don't want to hurt. oh well we're following all the events taking place in the middle east where the rest continues
