opposition to blame need to. try to treat. the internationally rich which is so faint that the rebels like the hold up. it just before kofi to syria. a. press about the situation. there are a pussy show. who are very unscrupulous they don't want to go back to a situation in which they might have to take the possibility of. a bit of what their way back they just want to remove by force that's a very serious risk especially with their older players who boldly that each approach to china there is. a zero for syria there is so. by turkey could trigger a broader war. well where the whole a massacre occurred on the eve of coffee and a visit to syria this latest
a bloodbath comes just ahead of a u.n. security council meeting to discuss syria later today but in the halls of the united nations deadlock over the mask is proving no barrier for the u.s. which is finalizing plans for a post office in syria artie's moreno port now reports. the united nations is the only diplomatic forum where every country is supposed to be governed by the same rules the united nations founding charter calls upon us to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security a founding member and biggest financial contributor america ratified inside the u.n. treaty in one thousand nine hundred five which prohibits unprovoked attacks or military interventions in sovereign countries unless authorized by the un security council. my fellow americans today our armed forces joined our nato allies in air strikes against serbian forces responsible for the brutality in kosovo in recent decades the us has been seen violating the very international laws it helped create we have
acted with resolve the u.s. and its allies also acted without authorization from the un security council when it launched a seventy eight day aerial attack on yugoslavia in one thousand nine hundred nine nato starts war against the federal republic of yugoslavia serbia and montenegro. serbia for seventy eight days occupies kosovo and this doesn't have you an authorization until the very end the us again disregarded international law in two thousand and three after the security council refused to support a military strike on iraq they withdrew their new additional resolution rather than face defeat clearing it is their argument the way for a military campaign without any new u.n. approval the united nations security council has not lived up to its responsibilities. so we will rise to ours is not in conformity with the u.n. charter from our point of view and from the charter point of view it was in the by
circumventing international law for geo political interests experts say the us has systematically damaged the confidence and credibility of the un it's been used by the united states i think as a fig leaf to to get multilateral approval from the policies that the u.s. u.s. wants to do but if the u.n. doesn't agree with the united states as you know the case of iraq or kosovo the united states just disregards in the case of syria we're kofi annan fragile peace plan has showed slow progress washington is prepared to once again bypass the un if the security council fails to impose more pressure on damascus and members of this council and members of the international community are left with the option only of having to consider whether they're prepared to take actions outside of the annan plan and the authority of this council groans have no need for diplomacy they have
the legion's apparently the united states thinks it has no need for diplomacy it has missiles and drones the u.n. was founded at the end of the second world war as a place for countries to solve conflicts through dialogue rather than gunfire however the honorable goal of maintaining global peace and security becomes harder to attain every time a member state decides to play by its own rules growing up or not i r t new york. well clashes in syria have already spilled over the border to lebanon where the country's interior minister who believes a virus of this year in violence could be contagious for the whole region well here's a taste of what's coming for you next hour. we have some global and arab interests clashing and we all understand that we don't understand where this clash will take us in the end but we can say one thing with if the syrian conflict is resolved one way or another. this will affect the situation in lebanon lebanon security and doesn't depend on lebanon alone in the politically and in terms of security lebanon
depends on external factors as well the queen the people of lebanon have close religious i'm family ties with neighboring states. now the out of sporadic violence by both sides in the syrian war and the start of dialogue based on the country's sovereignty and that's the message coming from central asia six pioneering powers as a shanghai cooperation organization summit in beijing wrapped up well all eyes now are on its fringes where iranian and afghan issues will be brought to the forefront . explains. well the shanghai cooperation organization summit which last two days now has come to an end with some very important security agreements have been signed between the parties involved but definitely the most interesting events of today are the meetings. the leaders of iran mahmoud ahmadinejad and afghanistan first of all. china for him it's just the place to be because it is probably one of
the few places in the world where he is not being threatened by sanctions where you can all feel relaxed and smiling we saw on the cameras as he was walking inside the building how children relaxed he was definitely putting on him have a lot to talk about because russia plays a very important role in mediating the conflict between iran and the west moreover the timing of this particular meeting in beijing is very important as well because in the middle of june we're expecting a five plus one group of negotiators to meet in moscow to discuss the iranian issue certainly this happens i mean the time when washington does not rule out military action against iran and constantly keeps slapping iran with different sort of economic and trade sanctions both russia and china support to support the civil nuclear program in iran at the same time they would not support any military nuclear program in this country now as for the meeting with it's also seen as very crucial because russia is now playing a very important role in afghanistan providing one of its military bases in the
town it will be honest for the nato troops to deliver its military cargo to afghanistan to help with draw all of the u.s. troops from the country by the end of twenty fourteen it's evident to many that the war on terror in afghanistan is not working out as it was planned civilians are being killed by terrorists drug trafficking in the still there so russia certainly wants to play a very important role in bringing this country to peace both russia and china have agreed to bolster their military ties of the news which would probably be unwelcome in the west and particularly in the united states definitely this latest meeting between the leaders of china and russia a very interesting spin to the international geopolitics. so shift your boarding there now we're always interested in your thoughts on the stories we're covering here on araa to use on our website or to dot com we're asking what you think the reasons behind russia stepping up its military ties with china are let's take a look at the cycle that we've got there for you at the moment. and i just think
you'll see that the majority of the respondents think it's to keep washington's asia pacific ambitions in chad seventeen percent say moscow wants to ensure regional security others are split between two options to keep tabs on china's growing military might and gain more leverage and the un security council will do us know what you think on this issue by logging on to our website party dot com. the bloodletting continues to span all across afghanistan with scores of people killed in the recent wave of bombings including a nato air strike local officials say eighteen civilians died at a wedding ceremony when the alliance forces launched on air raid on a village in the country's east nato commanders have denied reports claiming the only wiped out taliban fighters on the same day three suicide bombers hit a market outside a sprawling nato base in kandahar killing twenty two people investigative journalist gareth porter says nato activity in afghanistan has become a magnet for civilian deaths were ever it happens. this whole problem of u.s.
and nato military operations both air strikes and night raids is a situation that has caused enormous opposition from the population particularly of the population in southern afghanistan the. region of the country are to increasingly oppose the presence of u.s. and nato forces if you look at the casualty figures for civilians and you compare them with the level of foreign troops operating in afghanistan you can see that there's a direct correlation between the two and the more u.s. . nato forces particularly u.s. military forces are active in a particular area the more civilians are going to be caught up in the fighting so been in the exact opposite is really the reality of the claim but the united states could ever protect the civilian population. well still to come for you in
a program the pirates riding a wave to success there is mutiny on the political ship in germany as a pirate party uses the economic crisis and a friendly face to take the first step on to the latter to power plus the trial of america's most famous army whistleblower gets going in court it turns out it's the u.s. government that's hiding skeletons in the closet. that is coming to you later in the program before that the health of ousted egyptian president hosni mubarak has worsened dramatically well comes just days after the eighty four year old was jailed for life for complicity in the killing of protesters during last year's uprising the former leader is currently in intensive care suffering from shock high blood pressure and severe depression at the raaf looming on june sixteenth hundreds of thousands in tough square calling for mubarak's former prime minister ahmed shafik to be disqualified from the presidential race for many egyptians their
revolution haven't brought the change they were hoping for and that's particularly the case where women are to sara first explains. when this egyptian woman was dragged into tahrir it to be exposed and abused by the military men and it serves as a stark reminder that barrack mice of being toppled egypt's arab spring has many hurdles to overcome if it's to blossom into a democracy for a conservative cult show watching a woman exposed in that way open the floodgates to shocking tales of female protesters subjected to violence and sexual harassment not just at the hands of those they opposed but their fellow revolutionaries as well so we're having a small profit on with some men and the streets that there are still a little bit again as to having women with them side to side in the list of women played a vital role in egypt's revolution but will the future now holds for women and
their rights. and certainly the life of women actually is what water i'd like my do to live. i do less in the same way i live my i do this with no harassment sexual harassment is rampant in egypt forcing women to wear conservative clothes and even avoid areas where they might come into close contact with men because of the problems a sexual harassment but a lot of women complain about. the metric system has some areas for women only many of the women say that's the voice of the men's wondering. egypt's now facing the prospect of an islamic government that's raising fears over what it could mean for women's rights i met with as around one of just eleven female m.p.'s and a member of the muslim brotherhood she's controversially condoned the practice of female circumcision which was banned under the former regime. who agreed the rules
of the constitution first. broke the rules for women and where and we will do what is right. these coups to revoke hard won women's rights could risk egypt's new modern democracy becoming a terrifying throwback to the past ages of female oppression now. from. point which is very for street because usually off to. you feel that you are going to gain the political revolution in egypt may be in full flow but the cultural one it seems could be just getting stoned to serve. him. well for more on our headline news had to r.t. dot com and here are some of the other offbeat stories available on line so u.s. president likes to keep things trim by his obsession over looking slick go so far
that he even flies his own barber known as that with and from chicago every ten days before an obama surprising main street on our web site plus. your line viral video series of the so-called russian quiet word continues as these guys brave strong winds to do press and stand and cheer up some girl hundreds of the year is in the air without any safety. and the european commission has proposed more control of banks which means they will come under much greater central oversight this comes after financial institutions of europe's economic bastiaan germany fell the global european squeeze following the downgrade by moody's on wednesday investment advisor patrick young
says europe is now paying a high price for turning a blind eye to problems which have long existed. we've really heard the truth that i think many in finance knew all along but i'm such as commerce bank they build themselves up by huge portfolio where they thought they were being very very clever by buying themselves boards of places such as greece italy spain and in other words all the places where not they can't possibly sell their debt because the governments are effectively in huge problems so therefore what's happened is one small or another little layer of the onion let us say because we are way and that's examining and showing us that ultimately the euro has no clothes the european union is in a total mess due to its three years of denial of its economic problems all of the politicians hope basically left the people stranded the new government in spain
went into denial mode from the government they came into office and six months later they've suddenly realized what anybody who was remotely financially literate could work out six months ago or two years ago even spanish banks are lost and ultimately there needs to be a way in order to manage to rescue them but the conventional belike mechanisms are not going to work and that's why ultimately it's very difficult to see tragically whether or not there really is a future to the euro as a currency because it's a disastrous political scheme rather than an economic engine of prosperity rather it's the opposite it's putting people out of work for up work rather than putting them in jobs and at eight thirty am g.m.t. mexico either will be looking at the u.k.'s efforts to stay or can i cross terrorists and the financial crisis. the metropolitan police in the u.k. are going to go after them. well max and i were there to witness some of the
buildings they raided and they all looked suspiciously like council flats over nine hundred police officers are busy working across london tackling financial crime against businesses and the public as part of the latest operation in the m.p.'s is total war on crime in the last twelve months the police have seized over fifteen million pounds in cash from the small time economic fraudsters well they've got it backwards as the federal bust yet said a couple of centuries ago eluding at the top begets looting at the bottom if you want to get rid of the looting at the bottom there were looting at the top which means get rid of cameron get rid of born get rid of mervyn king until that happens expect more looting at the bottom. as a european financial roller coaster and keeps bringing just economies but also governments down it's given some political parties a chance to get to the top of the pirate party and germany has seen
a surge in popularity as people decide not to put their trust in traditional fractions are going off assesses the air political ambitions. it may seem like a hollowing convention but don't let these outfits for you this is the annual conference of the pirate party of germany only three years ago it had just about one thousand members now there are almost thirty thousand and with deputies in the three local parliaments including in berlin paris or hijacking their way into mainstream politics paris have become more beautiful landscape in germany that part of parties have to take and you already see that are people reacting to the party success story started in new in local elections last september when they surprisingly won newly named percent of votes now according to opinion polls the party would capture up to thirteen percent of votes across junee if the election to the national parliament was held today. a newcomer within the party system they
produce a policy making people didn't expect from a traditional party. and political communication and they are kind of a platform for the transport of political protest. the bars are all about participation and transparency allowing all members to take part in discussions online and it doesn't seem to matter that so far leave only submitted to me to political motions and school spy ware until conservation ones or that their favorite meeting spot is a bar in berlin they don't have a stance on foreign affairs or the financial crisis and have already made a few mistakes along the way with one senior member comparing their success to the first years of hitler's nazis though he quickly apologized we don't take ourselves so seriously we're not just plumb first as other politicians are we we know that
we're human and we we make mistakes and accept that make mistakes and therefore we have no fault of this. ok sorry i was wrong germany's national election is planned for next year and the planets and ready for battle just like most young organizations the pirate party over germany's going through its own case of growing pains but its popularity and flyers are on the rioters and it could be time for mainstream politicians to watch out for the new kids on the block is going to have or to germany. let's take a look at some other stories from around the world that literally agents have dozens of workers al queda rico's largest airport on suspicion of smuggling millions of dollars worth of cocaine thirty three people are accused of sending the drugs aboard commercial flights for at least a decade they are suspected of belonging to two puerto rico based drug trafficking organizations that work together and stop the drugs were sent to several american
cities including miami and new york. space shuttle enterprise has arrived at the final home after floating out the hudson river it's been lifted into place at the sea air and space museum in new york although it's never been on a natural space mission it was used as a test vehicle for experiments on the ground it was brought to new york after nasa decided to and thirty year shuttle program. the pretrial hearings and the case of bradley manning accused of the biggest classified data leak in u.s. history half kicked off and maryland but there is growing concern over their fairness where the u.s. government withholding more than two hundred thousand relevant documents from manning's defense bloggers haven't got starr who witnessed first hearing shares his impressions. what was really clear today is that the government has been misrepresenting intentionally the sort of evidence that it has in its possession
that it knows agencies possess which they do not want to turn over to the defense they cite legal reasons and all name military justice rules they talk about the fact that the defense hasn't been specific and they make up how they haven't you certain terms that you would normally use so you're just you know going above and beyond to stall and make sure that they can keep going where they don't provide the information that the defense wants that's just not the role the judge is actually the person who makes the decision on whether evidence is supposed to be turned over to the defense is the government or the prosecution's decision. all right turning now to the world of business we were in hospital we're looking at asia now so our agent asked are so optimistic. in fact it's the second there that we're seeing this optimism and that's not forget that in the beginning of the week all the markets across the board were deep in the red so it's
a breath of fresh air i have to say if we take a look at the latest figures we'll see that there's been little change from the past hour and this is basically a more optimistic then that has to do with the fact that they'll be more monetary easing in the u.s. and europe and they think that this will come with concerns about the global on the force because that the naked eye is that another one percent well that is slowly approaching one and a half percent in the blood when it comes to japan and we could use the next waters of another panasonic that's still gaining over four percent now moving on so there you were as someone with some international markets in their performances on wednesday. and as i did particularly well both getting over at supersonic and five shares there again more than they have to because they gave in the past year so far of course. now also another. optimism that was the it's the fact that investors thought that spanish banks will be rescued so we'll see more financial stability
there and also the federal reserve show the survey which indicated there will be more growth and the u.s. economy and that it will pick up speed then moving on so you have a similar picture there equity markets and the day on the positive note both the footsie in the diet over two percent in the black and there we have the european central banks that are good people it's interest rate unchanged at one percent despite calls for it to be decreased and also banking stocks are among the best performers there including mining and energy stocks as well now staying with the europe the spanish government will test the waters off the global credit market later today the cash strapped economy will try to raise one point six billion euros and that some of speculations it's been seeking a bailout from the fonz spain needs to find that least eighty billion euros to shore up the banks struggling due to bad property loans. then here in russia it's now in the hour ahead of the opening bell and if you can see that the u.s.
is in gained over two and a half percent of all the my sigs over a one percent in general the russian economy has been doing quite well despite the eurozone crisis. currencies now this hour the euro is a new saying the against the dollar as you can see there ever so slightly and when it comes to the ruble the figures from ones they gained against both major currencies and five we've seen some weakening of the ruble in the past couple of weeks for the month of may four percent of its value but since then the central bank has been put in a lot of efforts to make sure that the ruble is strengthening and we'll see that it's one thing there and then when it comes to crude get in now for a few more days and that's following the news that us that there will be more monetary easing in the u.s. as well as in europe and also when it comes to iran it's signaled that award of a hard line on this nuclear talks and of course the combination of the two brings the results that you see on the screen right there. getting confused with all the
marinas here that we have. all right thanks very much for that and of course as always looking forward to more days from you were in business. all right and coming up here on r.g.p. we've got. to delve deeper into washington's foreign policies focusing on the volatile middle east before that though i'll bring you the headlines.
with a vacuum watching our tears over the top stories of massacre in danger of losing syria government forces find dozens of women and children butchered in a homeless style slaughter once again coinciding with a high profile appearance of kofi annan. touching sore points global political attention shifted eastward as president would leave there were any and now get leaders in beijing revving up his chinese tour. plus the political revolution death failed to bring a cultural one and women in egypt fear their fight for equality is doomed as long as some rise from the ashes of the uprising. that's now lines here in our team coming out next stanford university professor william perry shares his views about president obama's foreign policy record and america's challenges and the middle
east stay tuned for the late spotlight. well. it's a technology innovation called the least developed from around russia we've got the future covered. however welcome to the spotlight the interview show on r t i would know one thing my guest is william perry. as the presidential campaign in the united states is in full swing it's affecting life not only in the u.s. but the other countries as well what guarantees all the americans are ready to give the russians consoling the a.b.m. system in war what's cooking in washington concern.
