10:02 pm
can go to this missile it was built to save critically injured american troops fresh from the front lines but doctors here also treat afghan civilians caught in the war's crossfire with nowhere else to go for help nine year old wally was shot in the head by a stray bullet earlier this year when u.s. marines going to a firefight with the taliban his village in helmand province the bullet shattered part of his skull and would have killed him if not for emergency surgery in six months dr miller park says he's treated more than a fair share of afghan bystanders mostly gunshot and bomb blast victims in this follow up operation he and his team are reconstructing the boy's forehead with a titanium miche that will restore his appearance i started what i had been going on i was surprised by to make a difference i wish i would very likely not.
10:03 pm
michel. in the recovery ward well he's part of the argument is that while he sure it was a u.s. marine corps that is he's grateful for the first class treatment he is receiving which other words i'm just happy that he's ok the shooting was a mistake so he's forgiven accident or not the enduring insurgency suggests that no amount of good will can compensate for civilian casualties that continue to climb each month you know war the growing zone chasing workload. for. as the u.s. occupation of afghanistan and as its second decade american forces out facing growing resistance to our people sick of never ending war american all there was a lieutenant colonel until a shopper says the u.s. is falling in the footsteps of the soviet union and should have led the country long ago. in two thousand and three we actually achieved our major military objectives by two thousand and three what you've seen since then is just essential you are dealing with a culture we don't fully understand following the same failed path the soviets
10:04 pm
followed in their occupation silly to actually try to secure the urban areas to basically modernize the culture and some hope that they would become a twenty first century society it's not our job to make the the the lives of the afghan people better our job was to ensure the terrorist attacks cannot be mounted from there and that's what we did in zero three frankly everything since then has been a waste issue until we decide we're going to get serious this is really pakistan the afghan government knows that we know that and finally admitted within the last two weeks that the eye of the pakistani intelligence service has been helping the taliban but basically you have a pentagon which is committed to a failed course and they are not only doubling down on the tripling down on things that they know they cannot win it's time we believe if it were up to me i if i were president obama i would declare victory that we actually did back in zero three and zero four and let it go this is the deal you have to seek regional so solutions this is not an american issue this is truly a pakistan afghan india iran issue and frankly we should be work with those people
10:05 pm

10:07 pm
rounds are being pumped into a seemingly unwinnable war and the life hundred million as a nation in development the ngos are saying well no is no reaching is the right people is not going to sit you know and go to really having much of an effect and i want to let you know thousand troops that are being killed in. a us university brown university in the thirty thousand other people having to go in in this case. civilians insurgents to. talk more about this is john hillery from the demo it's a charity war on one's own life is very much for speaking cellphones and. letting others on the human rights situation going on in afghanistan where he says better or worse and it was a nice ago but i think in the last five years in particular we've seen a terrible problem in human rights just is the poorest escalates here it's failed to bring any extra stability to you see many more children being to drive to their rights and many more people being killed and creating an escalation of violence in pakistan as well as in afghanistan because there's another lurching thousand people
10:08 pm
have died in indonesia as well so it's not getting better in any way is hearing much money from prison house has also come forward and address the fact there is ramekins eruption in afghanistan and in the process of getting aid to the people are really needed but he's blaming it on the international community she really said where nigeria russia will go is that training and others oversee in selling corruption within the whole of the afghan government and the key thing here is about getting the foreign troops out the people in afghanistan we found in britain we know here seventy four percent of all people want our troops down and that's what we're saying to the government gela trim sound and you can start dealing with all of the problems in afghanistan. people in the streets of london have been demanding an end not only to the afghan conflict but also to nato presence in libya and among the high profile faces of the protest was a wiki leaks founder julian assange we're told also you believe an interventional is simply the u.s.
10:09 pm
and europe taking of a country the lesson from libya is that there are only two superpowers in the world worth speaking why one those are the united states and europe least two superpowers who have gotten together to take over the country the regional justification in the balloon boy a no fly zone over libya has been completely abused it shows that there is no effective rule of no knight in nations is. be a lesson to us every time that a small mandate is given. military and intelligence powers. it is a slippery slope that leads to the takeover of countries or hundreds. meanwhile the need be a revolutionary forces have launched one of the biggest assaults yet on mama gadhafi his hometown of sirte and they have already seized a major highway that opens the way to attacking a key base of the candles nor lists the interim government claims to control most
10:10 pm
of the city now but it's still facing fierce resistance from point as loyal to the ousted need to revisit interim administration say says fall is crucial to fully declaring liberation and changing and actions but lindsey german from the start of the war coalition says that by shedding said for that reason nato demonstrates a very selective approach to protecting civilians. but the whole idea of the bombing was that it was meant to protect the civilians and bang goes i think you know why does he want anybody inside up to the idea that you have main killing civilians in the lover city or town in their beer and that's exactly what's happening so many times very selective about what civilians it supports it doesn't support those civilians remarkable was it really does support reality want and of course we know you want this war was about it was about regime change i wanted to get rid of gadhafi if i could just to stop this helping civilians in libya. if not
10:11 pm

10:12 pm
are these are the people you know. accused of being anarchist and disorganized the occupy wall street encounter meant it's far from chaotic it is set up like a small village broken up into themed sections way better organized than i thought it would be. they really have it set up so that there isn't a clear leader in the organization and the way that it's being done but at the same guy. every part seems to be handled by someone a medical area staffed by volunteers provides on the spot assistance or comfort area supplies sweaters mboya gets to keep demonstrators warm as the season gets chilly or while the donated sleeping bags pile up as the number of protesters grows bigger we just took the charge it's our buzzer beater from richmond virginia. the kitchen providing a traditional american breakfast bread bagels and peanut butter and jelly plant

10:17 pm
a bigger movements it's been going on for a couple weeks and every day gets larger and larger so. i think eventually it'll bring results i think there's a large amount of discontent with what's going on in this country and i think that this is it makes it so people can identify me like no other people are feeling this way as well so i mean it and this is of a rallying point i think that this is this is going to draw attention it's also going to draw people in whether or not you agree with their methods the bottom line is these people are getting the word out. and you can head to our twitter feed to get more and i'm going to corporate protests around the u.s. and our correspondents in america and across the nation stand shareable they see. you know one of her tweets says is a culture park in new york packed with protesters as almost two thousand demonstrators have gathered there so follow us on twitter has. to get all the updates on this story. and let's now return to our top story they tell front of us
