occupied since early october eight people were arrested when mounted police raided the encampment officers said they were simply enforcing a no camping wall and activists are allowed back into the park but the demonstrators say it was a full scale. movement has seen some heavy handed police tactics including the recent taser shocking of a protester in d.c. kevin zeese from the it's our economy think tank believes that the activists are smart enough not to overreact to excessive use of force by the police. who knows what's going through their head space on that you know when we i watch that video it's available online and it looks like there was no justification for it when i went to make fires in the day to ask about it people said the only thing he was doing was taking down signs around the tents that said no camping and so that was the rationale for tasering him he was dropping values not being as frightening looks like a excessive use of force my sense is that it's not going to provoke the campers that they're more. disciplined than that to fall for that trap the occupy movement
in a few months. and show you american people that if they get mobilized and organized that we have power we can change the direction this country so the future's going to be an american spring that's going to explode on the scene and become more important the presidential race in two thousand and twelve asia's leading economy china has pledged to consider pumping cash reserves into the euro zone to help with the blocs debt crisis the offer comes after strong lobbying by the german chancellor during her three day trip to the country it comes as the e.u. away to the conclusion of a drawn out greek debt talks the negotiations are key to athens receiving a second bailout and are seen as its only opportunity to avoid default at the same time readers are working feverishly to force popular financial legislation not all the member of the european parliament for the u.k. independence party says that people won't take kindly to these measures being forced upon them. they're going to get worse i mean at the moment they're bending
jamming the flags on the streets of athens i predict it will be roll next and then there's been you never know it could be toppled as well the tensions between the countries particularly between the north of europe and the south of europe is only going to get greater and what you've got is you've got protests in the south and what we're seeing in the north is a political revolution where new parties are springing it all and skeptic parties are getting better results than ever before the scary thing here that you have is once you start tinkering with democracy and trying to change things. i think you're on a very slippery slope in these and what's happening at the moment over here is that the e.u. is really showing it through to children what it's all about it doesn't want to listen to the people they're talking about an intergovernmental agreement and this will go into primary e.u. law through secondary legislation which means that the people can be bypassed there will be referendums across the continent particularly in iowa where there should be a referendum on this and what will happen is they will bypass the people and it will go straight into review and they will get exactly what they want and it is a complete affront to democracy he used to consider vladimir putin as our gentlemen
blaming him for the death of his son alexander litvinenko the former f.s.b. officer but this week saw an unexpected change of heart from the fierce kremlin critic who now admits he simply said what the western press wanted to hear walter levin yankel spoke with r.t. as your company. but is. this is how we found like that lead me and co praying in his tiny italian apartment no electricity no gas no court water. if it wasn't for the help of various people i would have died from hunger or frozen to death the last time i took a bath was on christmas eve. we expected more because six years ago after his son former aphis be officer aleksandr litvinenko was poisoned in london he was taken care of by some very powerful patrons like suffix outtake khun boris berezovsky and
have and a tourist former chechen militant both hiding in the u.k. . yet extremist dorsett there are. given you're pretty you're doris you would be. one vicariously namco sent a letter asking to be interviewed by russian television we expected more of the same but instead. but the image of a different. remit of it if you're watching this program please forgive me for all the slander the thai said and wrote about you for the hatred i had for you eventually i had known my son worked for british intelligence i would not talk about his death he could easily have been shot as a double agent the chinese should be short of story what else can i add to the. live in. the u. turn vaulters says came when his sons we doe marina bin and co revealed to the
british media that her husband had worked for m i six alexander litvinenko was receiving a retainer of around two thousand pounds a month from the british security services at the time he was murdered at first by truly thin and cold like many others claimed his son had been poisoned with polonium to tan on putin order the former f.s.b. officer and fierce critic of the kremlin alexander litvinenko spent twenty three days in a london clinic slowly dying from a toxic substance possibly consumed through a cup of tea even before police in london started questioning suspects the victim's father was actively kissing the russian government today by their at me it's he was saying only what the west wanted to hear. of course i realize russia's f.s.b. and the idea you have to take polonium to london sprinkle it over some heads and leave traces everywhere and they're suspect. you're not
a fool either way it was anger and blind hatred speaking inside of me vikram now believes his son fell victim to his own game of double agents now he wants his words to be heard but the media outside russia which once you let down his door for interviews now won't even reply to his requests this is. why is that. because they like it when i scold the regime i was a real treasure for their move on the whole there are very few people who would say as many horrible things about as i did. you know maybe in two thousand and eight but the only thing young call flat russia for sanctuary needs healing is settled in the sleeping quiet town of sinegal it offered a new anonymous life the man claimed putin was his number one enemy so hiding in europe he believed was the only safe solution today by the litvinenko is still afraid to open this door not because of putin though but because of his landlord to whom he owes a lot of money this miserable life has made him
a slave of his sanctuary but surely the namco sold everything he had in russia to come to italy he opened a small business several years ago but it went bankrupt things got worse after the seventy three year old had buried his wife but for now fears here casket could be removed because he hasn't paid the cost of a barrel plot and it's been months since the electricity was shot on to his flat he was lost for two euros went on a gas canister and that is gone to the with this is how most of us talk at the number in the door to let the southern wind inside. there is east only as russia. learned from. children who want to go home to russia i do want to stay here he said in a great show of an r t c ghalia eataly now time to take

settlement of the establishment of a global missile defense system about. this plan research is in jeopardy even the new strategic arms reduction treaty between moscow and washington has been unable to help. at a time of warmer bilateral relations nato's top brass decided to deploy a missile defense system aimed at protecting europe but they were setting up too close to russia's borders and moscow didn't view it as a friendly gesture. we want to defend the whole of europe not just some european countries we want to european allies and friends to join our missile defense strategy. to jeannie with the event of the situation with a european missile defense system becoming unfavorable to russia we reserve the right to take no further steps in the nuclear disarmament area. the kremlin has
repeatedly demanded that nato guarantees that the european missile defense shield would pose no threat to russia's strategic interests sofa the west has refused to cooperate with moscow on the issue. intercontinental ballistic missiles are transported through snowbound russian forests under the cover of darkness. the movements are shrouded in secrecy the people in charge need to perform training drills and test the hardware on the move . suddenly the convoy comes to a halt there's a forest stream blocking the path. crossing it's quite a challenge for the drivers of motor vehicles weighing many tons. as specially
considering the carrying nuclear warheads. engine is make sure that the heavy launches safely reach the opposite bank with the most hazardous huddle behind it the convoy is on the move again. as the convoy forges ahead to its destination they leave the forest and pass through villages the sound of powerful engines thundering past is becoming a common occurrence lately for local people. we need such missiles to defend russia we were good we would be crushed if we didn't have them. but that's all there is to it.
working when you hear them rumbling past you get a sense of great might there is no dealt we will be able to defend our country. without an agreement with the united states on missile defense and in the face of potential military threats russia was compelled to think of countermeasures. the country has declared in the past that it may withdrawal from the strategic arms reduction treaty and said it will introduce measures to counter the missile defense shield. we will go ahead with the deployment of our missile defense system it is obvious that this presupposes deployment of its components in poland in romania in a radar station in turkey obviously this will also until the is their mission of
a base in spain for american ships equipped with the system. it is obvious that the missile defense system will be targeted at the russian federation rather than some mythical middle eastern countries possessing a virtual missiles. at least fifteen countries around the world have been involved with the nato missile defense shield. their radar stations in denmark and britain which is also host to interceptor missiles in. canada two is going to join the project anti missile functions will be given to norad b. agency responsible for north america's air and outer space defense. japan has decided to assist the nato missile defense shield it's taking part in the manufacture of a just into septa missiles. japan is going to build a forward based radar station on its territory. a similar radar station has already
been built in turkey. the czech republic rumania hungry and poland are ready to allow nato as missile defense complexes to be placed on their territory. but if that were america forward based american military presence which means the deployment of bases in post is so. republics notably in central asia is an element of us global domination as a powerful ramified infrastructure any military base has the capacity to deploy units of agents supplying electronic intelligence. russia has taken adequate measures to counter such actions but i'm like it confines its activities to its own territory a radar station is being put on combat duty in the kaliningrad region russia's western. systems are being deployed in the country's west and. they could hit any target within a radius of up to five hundred kilometers. what is most important is that the
russian ballistic missiles are being gradually equipped with new warheads capable of overcoming nato's missile defense system. this lift carries people down to a secret radar station in european russia it's tucked away deep underground in a few minutes time major will be on duty to protect russia's space. to get everything about the station is classified the equipment behind these doors is the responsibility of special officers the station itself can operate autonomously it has its own power source and water supply and a ventilation system in.
washington knows only too well that russia can easily control the entire space of eastern europe this radio is one of the instruments the military installation protects the moscow region from attack by ballistic missiles it's thought to be controlled by russia's president who is also commander in chief of the armed forces . some time ago russia suggested to the united states that they jointly control delta space over the middle east he was in a similar radio transmitter stationed in azerbaijan if nato's top brass agreed to cooperate they would receive reports of any unauthorized iranian missile launches that washington would see as a threat to america. britain has developed milicic missiles capable of hitting targets in a little east in eastern europe this poses a threat to u.s. interests in the region. i don't agree with the u.s.
government belief that this is a serious problem with iran is doing is they're using very simple relevant nothing simple about rockets but the using very early generation rocket technology the only rockets they could build that could receive ited states would be enormous in size and not be mobile this city would have to be launched from fixed locations where the united states and russia if russia joined the united states could monitor these these missiles many in the united states dislike the views of theodore postol he maintains that the european missile defense system is ineffective the scientist estimates that it has no chance of protecting the united states from a rainy and missiles instead it creates problems for russia if russia believes is the fence is not needed but it doesn't pose
a theoretical threat to russia. my guess is that the russian government will say ok if you want to spend your national treasure this will help you so it solves the political problem and it provides much more people build a fence there with the united states currently building goods are. much cheaper. the professor believes that the purpose of nato is re done with europe is to track the movements of russian strategic weapons and to monitor russia's new military technologies. the real target could be russia but certainly it makes the people of europe less safe it draws them in in fact as a geo strategic pawn by great powers as they maneuver and use the missile defense shield not as a way to defend your not as a way to defend anybody in fact but to provide a first strike a potential capability against the adversary.
this is how we are going to train ourselves in order to be ready for any situation . these people crossing a field of kelp have serious worries about the global situation. they feel that as long as nuclear weapons exist they need to know how to protect themselves. if they're to survive in the face of a real threat they need to have everything necessary close at hand. the coach tells them that a compass and a mobile phone unlikely to help. the problem is that we can only get our bearings by looking at tree branches there are
more branches on the side where they are exposed to see. some light outside points to the cells. the people involved in a survival experiment will have to cover several kilometers in full gear their training mission is to reach an abandoned military base where they can hide from the harmful effects of radiation. but i. was struck with the idea of australia leon there's nobody around to see the film on screen yeah if you want to have sex go and have
seven family live in a military camp that is off limits to the public. keep going keep going. keep going. alexander was in a secret unit manning missiles when he. always makes a point of spending time with his wife and children. he's well aware of the standoff between nato and russia. it makes him apprehensive about what kind of future awaits his sons. of course my wife and i often talk about the future. we would like to see a bright future without crises. and. we want everybody to live in peace and we want everything to be just fine.
the i.c.b.m. so accompanied by a combat escort the world today we have always covered ground very difficult conditions for a thrust forward i do hope everything will pass off without any incidents. trucks carrying nuclear warheads lined up in a quiet glade the snowy forest provides good kemah flash for them together these mobile missile launches a cold and i guess in russian on the lingo they need to be ready for action at any moment. right dress. attention. come on major section chiefs is all reporting unit is ready to go. fully in. yes prepare the aggregate for. for haste. the sample intercontinental ballistic missile known as the s s twenty five to make this move
a twenty one meters long it's almost two meters in diameter and weighs about forty five tons of fuel. despite its impressive propulsion so the russian missile still hits targets with absolute precision mage's on its if joe is making sure that the missile launches how cool weighs in working order moving military home the job he's always felt with danger. with a couple this is a highly accurate weapon this is a range of up to ten thousand kilometers and lands within not more than two hundred meters from targets. you certainly realize that for the purposes of a nuclear strike this means a direct hit. the united states cannot give russian legal guarantees that the missile defense system is not directed against it this would be the wrong move as the matter consumes the defense of need two countries.
