5:01 am
to remember russia's. reopens after a six year no expense spared renovation with an exclusive grand god. there it's one pm here in moscow you're watching our weekly news review welcome to the program well this week saw nato officially announce the end of its aerial campaign in libya starting from next month the country's interim leadership will take control of all security responsibilities they're also tasked with rebuilding the country as well as preventing gulf era military stockpiles falling into the wrong hands of tall order and a nation flooded with weapons and he said only reports. the war is over but the weapons are fully loaded. human rights
5:02 am
watch has expressed grave concern about leftover are in libya their number one fear warehouses thought to hold ground to air missiles which could in the wrong hands take down passenger aircraft it's through made so i mean two allies in the region which these weapons have been flooding libya and also libya is quite world country anyway the population has has quite a lot of light weapons in its possession and those like my parents are becoming a heavy burden on the national transitional council now relying on an army of former rebels for security and we try to control the benz i'm going to check if there is somebody who has work and we ask him if he has a thursday show for this we are not. checkpoints have been set up across tripoli to check that those carrying weapons have proper documentation and those who do have the paperwork are being called on by the
5:03 am
national transition committee to return their arms the question now is what are they doing and what does that mean up for pulse gadhafi libya and its stability and now as you can see is being secured here everything is under control and the only one would think that we will make some mechanism how to give the weapons what we see something very different i ask this has commander what the plan is to disarm the population. i swear i don't know if. you know that it was just at the theater of the sea. and a makeshift arms collection center that covers one neighborhood in the capital we are shown this. through these are the weapons people brought to me today not many. walk down one block in tripoli and you'll see twice as many firearms. do
5:04 am
you know how many weapons there are in the gear i tend to slaughter to have incentives i think everybody have a weapon some think the flow of arms in the country could spell disaster ahead in the vacuum after gadaffi and post revolt chaos as groups fight out vicious fattal's from power. what you have now in libya is schools of armed factions who have no respect for each other and who have no respect for me the actually i believe opportunistically used may fail to achieve some aims and nato has been foolish enough to go along with this so i think what we're going to see now is a intensification of the civil war between increasingly the factions which have overthrow of the gadhafi regime with many libyans not yet ready to say a farewell to arms the empty sea which could only be good daphne with nato help is now asking the alliance to continue its mission
5:05 am
a vivid indication of just how unstable the country is and he's now a r t tripoli but now that nato is wrapping up in libya the organizations chief describe the operation is one of the most successful in the it says history but it's patrick hayes a reporter for the online magazine spiked says nato had no strategy other than regime change. what we see here more than anything else is opportunism of the worst possible sorts from western political leaders who are effectively trying to rewrite history throughout this entire conflict and to give the impression that they have some kind of strategy they were completely disorientated completely reacting to events rather than directing them the transitional council broadly have been cherry picked five nato these are people that effectively don't pop it of the west that have been put in there because they are kind of safe representatives because the west fears you know what might actually happen if the libyan people actually try and take the democratic initiative for themselves affectively the n.c.c.
5:06 am
has become quite dependent upon western leaders for guidance and i think that's really kind of problematic in many ways because again they're not genuinely representing the libyan people and their particular interests they're orientated instead towards the west and their interests. but it's thought that colonel gadhafi is most influential son saif al islam has for it and is there currently looking to hunting self over at the international criminal court he's reportedly used the spokes person to make contact with the hague to deny charges of crimes against humanity for some experts putting it off his son on trial is the last thing some western leaders want to see i bet it expects. to some moammar gadhafi was a man who knew too much secrets which will supposedly be buried with him i think that there were tremendous sighs of relief or older capitals in western europe this is somebody who cut all sorts of deals with the french and also the
5:07 am
british and the italians and to a certain extent the americans as well i think they did not want him put on trial for any research and i am not that surprised that he was captured alive if you very quickly ended up here at effie's return from diplomatic cakes are was spectacular hugs handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him good after he's now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat is far from buried and gone for years will do his group three seasons with it but the dealing with him has cost a lot of additional. will go away obviously because the situation was mission probably grew or. believe it was jewish with brazil or whoever it is then british prime minister tony blair was instrumental in good daffy's
5:08 am
rehabilitation bringing him in from the cold in two thousand and seven that play didn't lead empty handed trade between them flourished so did the cozy relationship there were six more secret meetings after blair left office his people denying they were about releasing the local. chama apple basket i'm a granny britain would lose its lucrative libyan deals i regret myself and obviously that gadhafi was put should he should have been said to the international criminal court put all the trial forced all it's a question through all the terrible things he did and if it cabbage the temporary world lose the previous regime to leave his task. we need to know. what is darby. with. some details of the murky dealings have already emerged claiming the reputation of one of britain's leading universities the london school of economics agreed to contracts to begin acting regime worth over two million

5:10 am
to answer for his own actions in libya is drawn out battle for control but it's what he could reveal about the diplomatic deals with his father that's keeping the western power plays sweating after bennett r.t. london. in his first interview with the western media since syria's uprising began . actions against his regime could transform syria into another afghanistan his comments came after the un secretary general once again condemned the country's violence calling for the repression to end and the arab league also urged us to end the civilian death toll of three thousand killed and the rest since march ministers are going to meet syrian officials later today to press for dialogue between the government and the opposition some protests as calling for a no fly zone over the country support their claims but this isn't a syrian writer and democracy campaign. it's
