antacid of law let us imagine for argument's sake that bashar al assad's sent his security forces against a group of syrian demonstrators that those troops were met with stones they fired live ammunition back and then claimed they did it in self-defense i think that we can already hear that the rise of the laughter of west implications and western media and here today would have us believe that they were acting in self-defense when fighting first radical it's and then live ammunition at rock throwing surface but what were they doing there in the first place the notion that they were actually helping touchy called a snake impose his control on the border between costs of uncertainty which should be properly called administrative dividing line means that they have exceeded their mandate and they're no longer acting in accordance with resolution twelve fifty

vowed to veto the variation in support of its allies israel meanwhile televisa been slammed by the international community for deciding to expand its settlements on occupied palestinian soil poor not reports. so far there is about six security council members on record that have thrown their support behind the palestinian bid a total of nine out of the fifteen countries need to support the application and there has to be no vetoes none of the veto wielding members of the security council should cast a veto as we know the united states a staunch ally of israel has vowed to veto the palestinian bid for u.s. membership if it house to israel is very much opposed to this the us president barack obama said the only way that there can be independent palestinian state is if the palestinians and the israelis get back to the negotiation table and discuss the middle east peace plan that comes to fruition so at this point some critics say
6:11 am
the palestinian campaign for you another ship is doomed to hell but the palestinians are very appreciative that security council is moving so quickly and at the very least this is bringing to it bringing attention to a problem that has lasted for decades and has not yet been solved there has been condemnation coming from the international community against israel's plan to expand its settlements russia has said it's deeply concerned with the plan and hopes that it would be revised the united states and european union also voiced criticism of this plan and some critics say that the settlement expansion is actually a violation of international law and if anything israel's actions can be seen as provoking and already sensitive circumstance not helping to reach a. peace agreement the palestinian authority say that israel clearly with this move is not serious about peace whatsoever and we can imagine that
6:12 am

6:14 am
in space exploration program with few but very precise steps every launch for them is something new but for now they are really the point we had reached thirty years ago as for technology they may well have borrowed some of it both officially or unofficially from russia the u.s. and europe all over the place but one of the reasons the chinese are developing their own space program is that they weren't invited to join the i assess they were even refused permission just to visit the station so russia and europe had nothing against it so we have to bear in mind that trying there is a different civilization it was once willing to go hand in hand with us and the americans but will simply go their own separate way so this launch is the first step into their own module based space station which they plan to start building in two thousand and eighteen. and elsewhere in the galaxy attend the centimeter piece
6:15 am
of daybreak may not seem like a big deal on less of course it's careering around earth's orbit three people on the international space station are now preparing to take evasive action to avoid an encounter with the runaway space john let's get the details on all this stuff from marty's piece are all over peter so is the crew of the station in any danger but the crew themselves are prepared for this type of eventuality. it actually happens around six hundred times a year the average is that they have to make a vase of maneuvers on board the i assess to avoid bits of debris that are flying around now there are an estimated twenty thousand pieces of space junk being tracked going around going around the planet at the moment this particular piece of space junk is a a ten centimeters size bit of a rocket that was launched in one thousand nine hundred ninety one to send a satellite into orbit now what happens if the eye assess detect that they are on
6:16 am
a collision course with a piece of space junk that they try to make emergency maneuvers if they can to try and get out of the way however if they can't make those those maneuvers and be one hundred percent sure that they can get out of work out of the way there's only one course of action left. the crew take shelter in the most protected area of the ship the safest place is the capsule in the so use module so that's where the entire crew hides when the station is considered to be in danger but it blogger mars version that bit of it under the satellite in orbit plus a manned space station what can actually be done to tackle the dangers posed find space john well unfortunately as it stands at the moment there is no viable plan in place to to try and clean up space to clean up space there is no method of giving space a spring clean all of those theories that have been put forward are either too expensive to outlandish some of been done
6:17 am
a little bit too side by or they're just not workable they just basically the technology isn't advanced at this present time now the big problem comes is as i say around twenty thousand objects are being tracked at the moment the most recent one you can see a shot of just right there that came down to earth the most recent large object was the usa r.s. . research module that was a nasa satellite that will be monitoring the the atmosphere that came down to earth last week and part of it went through the atmosphere and all the the reason that we have so much space junk in the big problem comes is that the space junk is growing exponentially due to something called the kessler effect now what this is one piece of space junk crashes into another piece of space junk and makes more space junk so the scientists and those who are are monitoring the pieces of debris that are up there the big concern for them is that and around six years we might not be able to
6:18 am
actually get. to it there might be as much enough space junk up there to cause problems from launching will anything from earth into space due to the fact that there simply isn't any isn't any room around the planet so at the moment there is no way of tidying up all of this debris to make sure that we can continue the exploration of space. he said they have that r.c.s. piece for all of that. and we've got some news just in now here at r.t. german the lawmakers have approved expanded powers for the euro zone a bailout fund m.p.'s took part in a vote today in berlin the fun could now be extended to a total of four hundred and forty billion euros now mainstream media is thrown into a tailspin after an independent trader tells the b.b.c. how the world of big money in politics it was from the inside here's our report now

awareness to what many call a corrupt system really was. and still others have argued for years that the government's actions are dictated by the big banks the very special interest in on wall street the insurance industry these guys these are the people who are writing the laws that obama is passing they are keeping him in power they are the ones that have financed this campaign and the laws are being written for their benefit. as anger builds here perhaps better questions need to be asked here so that a different message is sent to decision makers here that the system that has been sustained and protected for decades might need to change in washington christine for our tea. ok let's take a look now at some other world stories this hour america needs to vote for the twenty six year old man and charles taylor plotting an attack on the u.s. capitol and pens you can using remote controlled model aircraft packed with
