than ever. the standoff threatening to turn into one arm complex on the service border with northern cos of zero as nato is attempts to dismantle world blocks in the disputed checkpoint leave several people injured. parties interview with noam chomsky linguist author and mit professor is coming up for you next. r.t. sitting down with for over an ounce scholar at linguist author and mit professor noam chomsky professor chomsky thank you very much for taking time speak of r.t. glad to be with you the first issue i want to speak with you about is the recent clashes that have taken place on wall street between americans who are turning out to demonstrate and police officers from what i read you recently sent a message to support the activists of this group called occupy wall street you've called them courageous and honorable you can talk to me about your take on occupy
wall street well as in the wall street in just a short him through the financial institutions the banks are bigger and richer than before corporate profits are retreating record levels for much of unemployment about the level of the great depression real unemployment these people are saying no let's blame a couple of the institutions behind them so fiscal policies like taxation the rules of corporate governance deregulation and so on it does set in motion a vicious cycle which is getting worse and worse in new york so the walk down the streets you can see it very serious poverty on the other hand phenomenal wealth right side by side the much like a third world country what you see if you go to so there are not enough with that meanwhile infrastructure is collapsing and schools are collapsing and all of that increases the. keeps the cycle going and like rising well.
it's about time for some protest what may be new in the coming year for that twenty twelve election is that many including yourself have speculated and assume that campaign spending for the u.s. election two thousand and twelve will exceed one billion dollars each for have a date twenty that is a massive it will clearly be much brighter and where does that come from well you know a lot of it comes from financial institutions like you look at the two thousand and eight election and what's one obama what gave him the election was primarily financial institution contributions they preferred him to make and they expected to be paid back when they were. on the next will be even worse and certainly that's only a part of it in parliamentary systems including our own up to or maybe twenty years
ago. positions of influence in a functioning part of a parliamentary system the chair of a committee. comes from principle at least from experience he knew already. legislative contributions and so on that's gone now they're bought if you if you want to become chair of the committee. in the house of the senate you have to pay off the party have to pay for it where do you get the money to pay for it sam pocket you don't so. provides even more influence to the your already overwhelming influence of concentrated capital so it's harder and harder to distinguish between the elected officials and. economic concentration it never was easy to distinguish i should say this is not something novel but now it's reaching the extreme level but what's left of america's democratic system if this is the process that has been
cemented in plates and what is really left if from every angle there's these very nicely we just take a look at public opinion they'll tell you. about two thirds of the public thinks the entire congress would be thrown out. but that doesn't mean that it's going to happen no but it means that the system isn't working and the public knows it. the popularity of favor ability rating for congress and single digit president not much higher in the same month across all other institutions it's a very widespread sense that everything is going wrong that tells you the democratic system is just not functioning now in fact i don't want to suggest that this is totally new so you go back a century and you can still predict throughout all this period pretty well the outcome of elections by campaign funding but there are degrees and now it's gotten
extreme. the levels to which the u.s. has departed from other top of the societies are pretty remarkable you released a book recently. called nine eleven was there an alternative focusing on the u.s. assassination of osama bin laden and that continuity you say between george w. bush and barack obama. the killing of osama bin ladin is an interesting case it was done. in such a way as to infuriate the pakistanis which is extremely dangerous that's the most dangerous country in the world and go into it but you have a professional army committed to the sovereignty of pakistan the pakistanis were already. overwhelmingly the american this shoots through the stratosphere the army is bitterly angry not only at the invasion of
the country and the murder of someone on their soil but also that they're being pressured forced to take part in an american war in afghanistan some of the not you conservatives military out a list so wrote about the bin laden assess nation i quoted some of them pointed out quite accurately that there's a shift between bush's policies and obama's and this bush bush's policy was to kidnap people. whatever you thought about them. take them to guantanamo or bob graham or some other torture chamber and try to extract some information out of them we know what that was like to describe it obama's policy is just to kill. killing them all over the world now is targeted assassination attempt and you know to kidnap them and torture him just kill him. the blood necessitates it was a case in point it's hard to remember but there used to be
a system of justice in the west which said that a person is a suspect until he's proven guilty of until then he's a suspect he's innocent until proven guilty well that's one night you just kill him if you think they're guilty so he was apprehended. no resistance he was alone with his wife but the feds nothing. highly trained commandos could certainly have apprehended him and they didn't they were under orders to murder him and then toss his body into the ocean acts that are almost designed such a way as to increase. the hatred throughout the muslim world and when anybody has got their eyes open you talk about the obama administration and how the us actually is right now could be infuriating the muslim world the arab world the obama administration has supported the tunisians has
supported the egyptians has supported the libyans and the so-called arab spring the palestinians have officially submitted an application for un membership and statehood the us says that they will cast if you go against it if they do because they believe that the record low shisha should take place between palestine and israel before there's an independent palestine first of all i have to make a qualification of the united states and its western allies did not support the egyptian museum revolutions they opposed them they said they back to them and to me as it was mostly france they are calling me fix go i mean egypt was the united states and britain they supported the dictators until the last minute and when. the army turned against them and it was no longer possible to support them and then they said ok what democracy is wonderful and then they move to try to ensure that the regimes would stay pretty much as they were and cites a very old pattern but putting that aside it's true that the united states
announced that it would cast of the for about thirty five years the united states and israel have been rejecting a political settlement that is supported by virtually the entire world the arab league the organization of islamic states which includes iran and hamas supports it almost no relevant party disagrees with it except that the united states and israel won't let it happen have the fact that egypt right now and turkey have really suffered their relations with israel see that's an effect of the arab spring what that what's happening there are changes in the world what's happening is israel is getting far more isolated meaning the us is getting for more isolated for example a couple months ago there was a meeting of the the all the gore people are pretty much on the economy and they've they've warned the government that they'd better accept something like this
resolution because that is it otherwise israel will be as they put it south african eyes even more isolated boycotts refusal of ships and so on and our economy will collapse now it's interesting that israel is reacting prematurely ever going to if you look back at the history by about one hundred sixteen we have the records the south african foreign minister called in the american ambassador described this to him and said we don't really care as long as you back us because you're the one vote that matters and that's how it worked out right through the nineteen by the one nine hundred eighty s. u.n. and boy are you in a ballpark of what corporations were pulling out. sanctions over boycotts they were doing fine. the reagan administration was backing them. as long as the u.s. was supporting them nothing happened then the u.s.
withdrew support almost instantly apartheid collapsed they're saying it's in israel's best interest and the us still allowed this palestinian un membership stay with us for thirty five years the same scenario which a murderer is now that it's been for almost forty years there's a choice between security and expansion very clear choice israel is like other states is preferred for since the early seventy's it's had a choice between security and expansion can have peace but not with expansion into the territories which incidentally is recognized to be criminal but everyone including israel they can get away with it as long as the most powerful state in the world backs them and as long as europe goes along and europe is remarkably tolerantly them out like this but they don't like to step on the opponent also the masters so they go along so you know it's the quartet has backed the united states
they picked tony blair you know i don't have to comment on him but then i might as well pick george bush to. bring the message you do what the united states tells you to stop this it's about statehood and go back to negotiations with that's where we now stand and it's up to the people then just industrial countries to compel the governments to go along with the world the rest chomsky thank you very much for your time you. discover it. communicate with you want to. test yourself and become free.

sports news with kate. welcome to the sunday evening sport here's what's coming up top drawer ballots and returns to grab the late equaliser as ten months pontypool to two with leaders in the sunday fiction premier league clash here in moscow. while testing times ireland wales and argentina grab quarterfinal spots but the black star don carty is out of the tournament rugby world cup in new zealand. and begin japan done it but i was acquainted when of the season with a dramatic victory in clash japanese botha g.p. . the first football and violets in return from his three game ban to snatch the late equaliser ten months sponsor through to two with table toppers and bitter
rivals in it in a struggling russian prime really clash of the stadium alexander a new course put through his own nets to open for the fourth place and side after twenty three minutes. miguel danny levelled the need after forty minutes in the garage playing through a nifty cross to beat the offside trap that's the striker would soon be left feeling a spotlight nicole asked but i thought apparently punched him in the face so straight red card with often fast approaching however there's a golf seeing fully restored after the interval as the league's top scorer made the needs extra man count just two minutes into the second half he would later pick up a leg injury which could jeopardize him being called up for russia as they travel to slovakia for the euro twenty twelve qualifier on saturday however it was returning volatile you have the last say off the bench netting with ten minutes to go and to soon it was how it finished. the elsewhere taste i missed the chance to
capitalise on that result the army men would have gone level on points with an eight at the top if they'd beaten down the trustees to banning kuzma but a goal this draw was all the moscow club could manage if they did overtake cross city runs denominate into second spot two points adrift at the summit. paul in the early could barely understand the salvatore book at least scored a second half brace twice for what champions were being a to know when the bottom side tome that victory all but securing rubin's top eight finish at the end of the regular season before getting to the top of the table go into could be for the title in places that if the tom was there eight last nine matches. me more about the palace has taken charge of andre as player coach but that i should have the luck of that was the businesses who lead one nil thanks to philippe criseyde as it's been it's tried well into the second half. wow over in england frank lampard scored
a hat trick and former trotter daniel sturridge netted a first off brace as chelsea regained third spot with a five point triumph of slimeball said while andrew johnson also netted a hat trick as goal and claimed that after speech of the season with a six no triumph it means you keep your eye on the west london d'albret it's causing early penalty and danny graham strikers of swazis unbeaten home record day to nowhere and with stoke and call walkers seventy third minute shots was put thought it was two one up at home to austin north london darby into the last five minutes that. will be drug in our diet and have progressed to the quarter finals of the world cup for the fourth time and have set up a clash with wales after thrashing italy thirty six six in pool c. well italy put up a lot of resistance in the first how america masco getting both of their penalties keep the attitude contention early on but ronan o'gara scored three penalties for the irish to give them a nine six leave before the break and it was all island in the second half with
keith running to three tries and i mean feat for the center to mark his twenty fourth birthday allan have taken part in every world cup since the torrance inception twenty four years ago but it's the first time they've talked there has to be run through the group states. i but that was the best year and it was just to see green everywhere you looked and. our job was to give them something to cheer about. our interest in spades and. it was really incredible to play here. well i have never made it further than the quarterfinals and standing in the way now whiles he thought sixty six mil to finish second behind south africa in pool day while argentina defeated georgette twenty five seventeen called the expense of scotland paul a win as new zealand finished off with a seventy nine thirteen thrashing of canada that win was overshadowed by the start flying off down carter will miss the rest of the tournament. going during
a practice session on saturday i just feel for this young fellow. he's been building up to this world cup probably maybe it wasn't it is there's a vision to ten years ago that certainly over the last few years and it was a big stage for him twenty nine at the peak of his powers and that's been taken away so that's very said well look at the quarter final draw sees an eight team line up without scotland for the first time in the world cup and spacex new zealand face part in tina south africa take on australia england france and ireland take on wales those games were played next weekend and. now russia's debut world cup campaign has ended with the team flying back to moscow on sunday the bells might not have managed to win the game but as richard reports they were warmly received by a very appreciative and sometimes fanatical local support. over the last month or so rusher of made a lot of friends around new zealand for the vast majority of the team they have
never experienced such a level of interest from the general public if league managers in russia only are trying to few hundred spectators it is very surprising for the squad similar numbers attending the training sessions sure even autograph sessions. we're not really used to this level of attention from the fans and t.v. and to groups here that have done throughout my life here everyone follows both russian and global rugby it's great it's inspiring and it gives you the mood to ation to work even harder. this wasn't most of the players first experience of new zealand the team had been here on a training camp just after the new year. the squad would take the opportunity to see the sights as well as taking time off to take their minds away from all things rugby. this was by far the biggest events russia's players ever played in and in terms of experience it will take something special to beat the memories of a fire from this world cup it's really good to be to be here at the heart of the
world's a real b. and b. at the world cup stage is just it's just an amazing experience and very welcoming from home from the local people and we've already been to quite a few towns and cities so it's very interesting but sealy did mention that russia had to do plenty of travelling and this was perhaps fear only downside of the trip being new boys to rugby's biggest events the bears were given a very tough schedule which would see the team have to travel more than seven times to different locations in less than a month the critics of the russians there were hardly ever any complaints and they always had a smile on their face while they were pick up an army of unexpected followers along the way who went to rather extreme measures to show their dedication to a new found heroes. we're only going to support as russia is they they probably are going to have too many supporters so in a birth they will go for a nomad tamer i fear so oil cap and
a greater and here and there is plenty for russia to build on over the next four years they will have to find a new head coach after nicholai nearest resigned however at the moment it is likely that kingsley jones will take up the reins of the bears on a more official basis before the moments for russians can be termed pride. only back home in the knowledge but they've played some extra rugby over the last month or so here in new zealand the russians are welcome but it's come to an end of one experience that has been for the bears players over the last month or so i was made a lot of friends around here in new zealand i am around the world are very exemplary behavior coverage trouble and spirit and we're very very rigid on board radar to nelson. that any progress has claimed his third win of the season with victory at the research old and dramatic japanese motor g.p. it was an action packed race on the first lap to cathy valentino rossi crashed out forcing ben speeds to run off the track as well then championship in that case the
stone started on pole and was in front of the rest up brake failure saw him run into the gravel on route for operators that seized his chance to head the field in his wake there was more drama though the barber tumbling on the take the circuit of breaking his collarbone on he also hit the time like recovered to finish sevens however to try to stay out of trouble for victory seven seconds ahead of fellow spaniard jorge lorenzo stoner managing to finish third the australians championship lead was cut to forty points by the end zone with three races left. gays made a mistake and they were here going to beat show you know the freeway so i was going to need to do their best love them so good in the bag was working graeme will show that it was not so bad when we could do a great race. to us like you know it says go moscow have bounced back from their defeat by city rival sparta because the army men comprehensibly beats to be at three one on home ice the hearse had to wait more than
a quarter of an hour for their opener for example to scoff into the power fight from and break the deadlock and then they proceeded with confidence in this new goal in each of the three periods the cheek. manya adding their names to the score sheets to start loops while on my way to completing a shutout but city's finished forward your later save at least some pride for the visitors his goal in the dying seconds that's it was too little too late a severe felt their false defeat and little. and finally defending his world crown is not enough for extreme kayakers some sutton as the daring new zealand plans to take three titles from as many attempts next year the extreme kayak or championship took place in austria and something was interesting for me to old body of saw the twenty three year old broke his own course records to retain the coveted piece of silverware the first shot of the mark in the semifinals and then went on to lower it further in the decider with a championship winning run
a fifty five point four seconds russian surprised by kick a good schoolboy week off had to settle for ninth place on prevailing in qualification though while sutton was a happy man to have trick of titles is what the young daredevil really craves. a very happy and grow i mean to do is to do one more it's our job if there are finishing my goal directed me to do then i can celebrate. and that's all sports news bison.
