where people are dying from a lack of vital supplies amid ongoing fighting something experts say makes nato's mission to protect civilians more questionable than ever. argues interview with noam chomsky linguist author and mit professor is coming up 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 with 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 just a short him through the financial institutions the banks are bigger and richer than before a 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 the institutions behind them so fiscal policy is what taxation rules of corporate governance deregulation and so on those set in motion a vicious cycle which is getting worse and worse in new york so walk down the streets you can see a very serious poverty on the other hand phenomenal wealth right side by side the much like a certain world country where you see if you go to so if there are enough with the 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. exceed one billion dollar each friended canada that is and massive you know probably much higher than where does that come from well you know there's a lot of it comes from financial institutions but if you look at the two thousand and eight election what's one obama what. gave him the election was primarily financial institution contributions they prefer him to mccain and expect to be paid back when they work. and the next one will be even worse and so that's only a part of it in parliamentary systems clued in our own up till maybe twenty years ago. positions of influence and suctioning part of
a parliamentary system care of a committee. comes from principle at least from experience seniority. letters with contributions and so on that's gone now they're brought if you if you want to become tear of committee. in the house of the senate you have to pay off the party and to pay for it where do you get the money to pay for same pockets you know so. provides even more influence to the already overwhelming influence of concentrated capital so it's harder 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 of what's left of america's democratic system if this is the process that has some make.
what is really left from every angle their very nicely just take a look at public opinion they'll tell you. about two thirds of the public thinks the entire congress ought to be thrown out. doesn't mean you have it's going to happen no but it means that the system isn't working and the public knows. the popularity of favor ability rating for congress and single digit president not much higher and the same runs across all other institutions it's a very widespread sense that everything is going wrong that tells you the democrat . 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 capitalist societies are pretty remarkable you released a book recently. called nine eleven was there an alternative focusing on the us assassination of osama bin laden and that continuity you say between george w. bush and barack obama the killing of us on that laudanum interesting case it was done in such a way as to in europe pakistanis which is extremely bad drivers that's the most dangerous country in the world and go into it when 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 a plea 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 conservatives military have a list soon wrote about the bin laden assess nation i quoted some of them pointed out quite accurately that the 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 one ton of our bug rum or some other torture chamber you know twitter extract some information out of them we know what it was like to describe it obama's policy was just to kill. killing them all over the world targeted assassination camp and you know and kidnap them and torture him just kill him. in the bin laden assassination 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 wrong now you just kill him if you think they're guilty so he was apprehended. no resistance he was alone with his wife the defense doesn't. 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 her and. hatred throughout the muslim world in fact and when anybody has got their eyes open you talk about the obama administration and how the u.s. actions 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 u.n. membership and statehood the u.s. 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 house 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 too noisy and revolutions they opposed them they sit 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 they supported the dictators until the last minute and when. the army turned against them and it was no longer possible to support them then they said ok want democracy is wonderful and then they moved to try to ensure that the regimes would stay pretty much as they were and so it's a very old pattern but putting that aside it's true that the united states
announced that it would test of the periphery so as 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 supported almost no relevant party disagrees with it except that the united states and israel let it happen the fact that egypt right now and turkey have really sever their relations it's really see that's an effect of the arab spring what's happening there are changes in the world what's happening is israel's getting harm or isolated meaning the us is getting for more isolated for example a couple months ago there was a meeting of the the oligarchy people pretty much on the economy they warned the government that they better accept something like this resolution because that is
it otherwise israel will be as they put it south african iced even more isolated boycotts refusal of ships and so on and our economy will collapse now it's interesting that israel is reacting pretty much the way so. if you look back at the history but about nine hundred sixty we have the records south african foreign minister called in the american ambassador described this to and said we don't really care as long as you back us because you're the one who matters and that's how it works right through the one thousand nine hundred eighty s. u.n. border u.n. embargo corporations were pulling out. sanctions were all over that they were doing fine. the reagan administration was backing them. as long as the us was supporting them nothing happened then the us withdrew support almost instantly apartheid
collapsed saying it's in israel's best interest and the us still allow this palestinian un membership to say look i fought 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 talented lead 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 think george bush to. bring the message to do what the united states tells you to stop this nonsense about statehood and go back to negotiations that's where we now stand and it's up to the people danced industrial countries to compel the government to go along with the world that has chomsky thank you very much for your time you know. very first verses of the bible that all human beings are created but set of it all came in god's image and it doesn't say just jews or god just. sixty to seventy percent. what i did as a combat soldier. was to do with. doing what we call making our presence felt to go out. to the other corner and to another. religion and nationalism not just judaism. a part of the problem. part of what leads to.

crucero three months ago dug a stone club slipped to eighth. wow over in england frank lampard was struck a hat trick and daniel sturridge netted a first half brace as chelsea regained third spot with a five one triumph of bottom side bolton andy johnson also scored a hat trick as foreman claimed their first victory of the season a six nil triumph at home to q.p.r. in the west london derby swanzy preserves their unbeaten home run with eight to nowhere and with stoke and co workers seventy third minute shot to gave taught them a two on when the time to ask not in the north london derby. moving to rugby and ireland have progressed to the quarterfinals of the world cup for the fourth time and set up a clash with wales after thrashing italy thirty six six in pool c. it's really put up a lot of resistance in the first half medical beggar moscow hitting both of their penalties to keep get sorted in contention early on but ronan o'gara scored three
penalties for the irish to give them a nine six lead before the break and it was all ireland in the second half he sells running two of their three tries and no mean feat for the center mark his twenty fourth birthday ireland have taken part in every world cup since the tournament began twenty. well years ago but it's the first time they've talked they're cool thanks to the run through the great face. but that was the best year and it was just to see green everywhere you looked and how our job was to give them something to cheer about in the cup our interest in spades. was really incredible to play. well i'll and have never made it further than the quarterfinals and standing in the way now a wales who thumped sixty six nil to finish second behind south africa improve day while argentina defeated georgia twenty five seven to progress from pool at the expense of scotland call a winners new zealand finished off with a seventy nine fifteen thrashing of canada but that win was overshadowed by the
news all black star fly off down caught up will miss the rest of the tournament after damaging his growing during a practice session on saturday. i just feel for this young fellow. he's been is already up to this world cup probably maybe it wasn't his it was a vision two 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 quarterfinal draw season eight team line up with that scotland for the first time in the world cup as favorites new zealand face argentina south africa take on australia england will play france and ireland take on wales and those games will be played next weekend. now russia's debut world cup campaign has ended with the team flying back to moscow on sunday the bears might not have managed to win a game but as richard found poor feet 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 vast majority of the team they have never experienced such a level of interest from the general public if league managers in russia only attract a few hundred spectators it's very surprising for the squad top similar numbers attending the training sessions or even autograph sessions. were not really used to this level of attention from the fans and the t.v. and sanral 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 motivation to work even harder. this was in 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 the bay of hide from this world cup it's been awesome and it's really good to be to be here at the heart of the world is a real b. and b. that the world cup stage is just it's just an amazing experience and very welcoming from from from the local people and we've already been to quite a few towns and cities so it's very interesting to see lee did mention that russia had to do plenty of traveling and this was perhaps fear only downside of the trip being new boys to rugby's biggest event the bears were given a very tough schedule which would see the team have to travel more than seven times to different locations unless for the mum of the critics of the russians there were hardly ever any complaints and they always had a smile on their face while they would 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. only zero is good enough supporters rush is they they probably
are going to have many supporters so we will go for and say my russia first cap and a greater an easier and there is plenty for russia to build on the over the next four years they will have to find a new head coach after nikolai nero's 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 turned proudly back home in the knowledge that they have played some excellent rugby over the last month or so here in new zealand the rush of the world cup campaign has come to an end of one experience or has been for the bears over the last month or so i was worried a lot of friends around here in new zealand and around the world. very exemplary behavior off a bridge. and spirit in which very very rich aboard really ought to you know also. now down a producer has claimed his third win of the season with victory at the ratio george allen's dramatic japanese motor g.p.

a powerplay to finally break the deadlock and then the army men proceeded with confidence netting a goal in each of the three periods who shared. their names to the score sheets. looked well on their way to completing a shot at but finished forward yardy later saved some point persevere with his goal in the dying seconds but it was too little too late as the visitors felt their fourth straight defeat. and finally defending his world crown is not enough for extreme kayakers some sudden as the daring new zealand plans to take three titles from as many attempts next year the extreme kayak world championship took place in austria. and sutton was in terrific form in the tilt body. the twenty three year old broke his own course records to retain the coveted piece of silverware he first shot at the mark in the semifinals and then went on to lower that in the decider with a championship winning run
a fifty five point eight four seconds russian surprise package avoiding call for cops to settle for a ninth place prevailing qualification however while such was a happy mom the trick of titles is what the young dare devil is really quite. a pretty hefty in row i mean to do studer one more starts over for a finish my goal after work to mix to the next and celebrate. and that's all sports news by phone. culture is that so much a lot of people are curious will there's an old worth of difference to the life and slowed down of social democracy in the west an idea once deemed to be part of the very foundation of democratic values.
