hardly be very welcome in the west in the united states in particular which have been growing a very much war with china's growing military might and the recent visit by the u.s. secretary of defense mr panetta to the asian pacific region basically confirmed all these worries with producing statements like the united states must be vigilant in the face of. china's growing military power but beijing is also growing very impatient and very irritated with the actions of the united states which in particular this visit often that the saying that a growing military presence in the region may destabilize the whole situation we certainly are waiting to see whether there will be any reaction coming from washington on these statements coming from beijing but definitely the fact that russia and china are growing their military ties certainly adds a very interesting spin to global geopolitics. and if you follow that story i'll be interested to know later this hour we look at how the u.s.

snitch is another man's spin doctor the problem with the current situation with the current white house is they have leaked classified information for the times when it suits them to do so one of those with what was written with the book obama's wars done by bob woodward or they played out two chapters of information about current operations and also with the kathleen bagel bigelow project regarding seal team six takedown of ben lauder last year at this time the film in question which is titled as zero dark thirty covers last year's raid by u.s. commandos on the pakistani compound where some of bin laden was hiding the conservative watchdog judicial watch has obtained records revealing that hollywood filmmakers were given access to precisely undisclosed information about the operation oscar winning director kathryn bigelow and screenwriter mark boal were even granted at tour around the fold as cia building where tactical planning for the raid took place the film is out in december but was initially due to be

released just weeks before november's presidential elections bad facts all some flak fly the administration's way while the entire project has raised concerns over the way intelligence is being used it's best that this kind of information particularly as it revolves around what's surrounding this movie remains classified it absolutely has to it's very unfortunate that it's coming out to be used for political purposes for a congressional election however there is nothing unusual about the defense department collaborating with the makers of hollywood blockbusters. it's a partnership that dates back to the middle of the twentieth century and it has proved effective the pentagon has what hollywood filmmakers one access to millions of dollars worst off a military equipment to use in the movies and hollywood has what the pentagon wants the insolence to sugarcoat its actions and attract millions of potential recruits

in recent months to other movies about the navy seals biver and act of valor how for safety official assistance veteran hollywood reporter david robb says the pentagon has for a long time had access to the scripts of hollywood filmmakers to show the military in a better light and the american people are seeing hundreds and hundreds of films and television shows that have been sanitized by the military and to make military seem more heroic than it really is and never wrong and always good that this creates a false image in the american people's mind so while for some small gadgetry walked out others are trying to project patrick johnson and propaganda on to the silver screen but i didn't question archie reporting from los angeles california and just about just waving catchy yesterday the world's top whistle blower julian assange
10:10 am
has got his very own interview program here on this child well if you missed any of the episodes including yesterday's latest one go as catch them online as well the streaming whatever you want to see the dot com. bridging rules during public protests may no cost a pretty penny here in russia as lawmakers approve a new bill supporting tougher punishment for violations it's yet to get signed off by the president but the bill's already caused a storm among politicians and opposition groups and even set a new parliamentary record for the time it took to be passed what is it called piskun office got the details. the draft aims significantly increasing the fines for violating the rules of taking part in mass rallies from the current seventy year olds up to a maximum of seven thousand euros for average citizens who are around two hundred hours of community service so that's why it's caused such a wee of fierce criticism and anger both from the official and unofficial opposition many of whom are calling this draft draconian but its supporters say
10:11 am
that it corresponds with western european standards and actually if we compare the figures the penalties in some western european states are often much more severe and the fines could be much higher as well reaching seventy five thousand euros the draft was initiated after a launch protest rally ended in clashes between some of the protesters and the police we've seen pieces of concrete flying around small grenades and injuries on both sides it was more of a marathon last night when it took eleven hours for the lower chamber of parliament the state duma to work through the draft because of a new tactic which is being taken on by the opposition which is new for russia but it's a practice which is similar to filibuster ring in the united states when some deputies try to be as abstract as possible to do real the vote but by around midnight it still ended up being passed to despite this fierce debate. now we go all later

stories on our website it's quick taste a couple there right now you might be interested in the rest celestial sight we're bringing you here live in both astronomers and stargazers gasping in amazement over the r.t. dot com for spectacular footage of this there it is a little spot the transit of venus across the sun but a look at our website because don't look at it direct really happens every hundred five years and staying with the final frontier we investigate the mystery of an american satellite which returned to earth after a year in orbit with its mission cloaked in secrecy. a morning nato air strike in eastern afghanistan has left at least eighteen people dead including women and children according to local officials there people living nearby say all those killed were celebrating a wedding a nato denies that claiming they took out a military commanders in that strike and doesn't mention at all civilian casualties in this statement let's talk about this in a couple of other matters no that point to race she's joining me live she's
10:13 am
president of the pac nationalist forum is on the line from islamabad rather are there's talk about this event first it's only a week since the un report since talking whether the number of civilian deaths in afghanistan by nato saying it was far too high now today we have another deadly airstrike what impact is this latest. air strike one of a better word i'm going to say x. that we don't know there's a strike going to have. kevin first of all i'd go with the report of the of government and their complaints about the civilian deaths of course i would not take into account the denial of the nato because the government does not have a reason to lie and of course they have a reputation to protect in front of their own people they have their answerable to their people so i would go with the afghan government is saying and they're saying that civilians have been killed today and i think without exaggeration it would be safe to say now that the vast majority of the of gun people have really rebelled against the foreign occupation of their country though the only reason you're
10:14 am
seeing increasing and more blunt and more courageous resistance attacks against the coalition forces in afghanistan is because the ordinary of guns are providing sanctuary are providing protection of providing access to the resistance fighters to the to the al qaeda to the taliban whatever you want to call it whatever nato wants to call them so basically and everything you hear frankly about winning the hearts and minds is really ancient history that the americans have absolutely lost it as far as the of gun people's hearts and minds are concerned on the mission was to protect the wider afghan population wasn't this but another event as well twenty two civilians killed again until i've just been talking about twenty two civilians killed in twin terrorist bombings earlier on of the day as well this protection of the afghan people is going so well as it. the of gun people kevin have lost more of their civilians in the first decade of the twenty
10:15 am
first century then the united states lost on nine eleven it was a tragic event of nine eleven but this is no less a tragedy and frankly we don't see any justice in this that the afghan people did lose this many of course nato and the u.s. military in afghanistan a very quick to condemn the taliban for their bombings in various cities where and attacks of course were civilians are killed but how is the u.s. military and nato any different they kill as many civilians there and i think and i hear we hear we talked to a lot of gun activists and i think any feature of government in afghanistan after the americans are in order to reclaim credibility i think they will have to initiate some sort of a reconstitution process whereby they would have to move some legal cases maybe go as far as the u.n. or the international court of justice and ask for compensation for what happened i mean of going to stun will be left with with with wounds that would take it decades
10:16 am
to heal i mean just just it thousands and thousands of civilians have been killed who would look after the the orphans who would look after these psychological and the other social problems resulting from the that this is an ending endless deaths of civilians and milk out to belittle whatsoever on the u.s. military and the nato. that's let's talk about for a minute we complained about the u.s. drone strikes they don't choose they say in the alliance acts against international law is markedly similar doesn't it to what western aid is accused syria's president of doing kind of double standards own them. i see no one has been really undermine the international system in the twenty first century the first decade now of course we're in the second decade of the twenty first century no one has undermined the international system more than nato and the united states and this is very very dangerous i mean this might sound a little alarmist or romantic maybe but if we go back
10:17 am
a hundred years ago the early years of the twentieth century the very reason the world went on to extreme armament didn't weaponization and of course endless wars is because of the mistakes committed by the western powers and i'm very concerned to see these very same western powers sort of messing up and really planting chaos in our region and we will pay the price for what these people are doing here and and i think i think the people of this region the countries in the region the major powers in this region russia china pakistan others should really step in and try to sort of contain some of the mess that these western powers are leaving behind or i thank you for your thoughts are there on the line from islamabad president of the park matchless form as you are. so international news in brief now at seventeen minutes past six o'clock moscow time hundreds have marched through to rome to in support of quebec students have been rallying for months against jewish and hikes
