hello and welcome to our c twenty four hour news live from moscow i have all of us thanks for joining as russia has criticized a new u.n. resolution on syria as one sided and supporter of the armed opposition moscow says the non-binding motion passed of the general assembly does nothing to ease the conflict this comes after the u.n. envoy to syria kofi annan announced he was stepping down casting doubts over the future of the peace effort and the citric and a has more from new york for us. this resolution apart from condemning the security council for failing to move the syrian peace process forward also condemns the syrian government for failing to stop using heavy weaponry as well as condemns the syrian government from now for not withdrawing from civilian areas among the ones that voted against this text was of course russia russia believes that the behind the humanitarian facade of this resolution lies the militarization of the opposition and russia says this
1:02 am
resolution is not helpful and that the countries supplying weapons to the opposition are well known take a listen it is a this resolution exacerbates the confrontations and solving the syrian crisis it's not helping the sides enter into dialogue find peaceful ways to solve the crisis in the interests of syrian people this resolution is not how can you because it contradicts the efforts to realize the annan plan it undermines the syrian led crucis from a political resolution. russia believes that this particular text is one sided and balanced as well as the whole idea of pushing the syrian government of stepping down is really an intervention into sovereign affairs six point peace plan remains on the table as coffin and steps out of the picture this plan of course called for the creation of the transitional government in syria the idea was to have both sides of the conflict. form this government to hold new elections however the idea

the sovereignty of syria and we don't want the syrian people to determine their own future william hague suggested he's going to offer non-lethal aid he hasn't given specific details of this yet but it does seem like it's going to be intelligence it does seem like there's going to be an awful lot of support announced for the rebels over the next few weeks and of course this comes just after president obama has announced well it hasn't been announced but it has been revealed that there has been a secret plan basically allow the cia to assist the rebels as well the thing i find very striking about this is that there's a real historical amnesia that's taking place among western leaders where they don't really know who the opposition is there are a lot of concerns about the makeup of it though you have you elements there are a lot of people who the west would not like to be dismissed with their stuff into this mentality that they draw to help anyone get into power they drive a sports any of the opposition in syria then they would support assad's assad has become this bogeyman just like it before him and they just see we need to get rid

coincidence that the rising rejection rates occurred as america's economy tanked but acting on the perceived fear that immigrants were taking american jobs has had the opposite effect it's unfortunate. denials are being made that are justified because what happens if it ends up being an incentive to u.s. companies to locate more resources outside the country in some ways in ways that might. well u.s. immigration authorities have increased the rejection rate of temporary work visas for citizens of all countries india has been the hardest hit just last year a lot of infrasound of indian applicants for a certain type of temporary work were rejected while only around rebirth of applicants from countries like germany and the u.k. were rejected for the same type of temporary work visas. the other sting in the

constraints on to this process and then you saw the iran contra scandal it was the first test case really what would congress really hold the president to task in and make sure that he couldn't go off in his own direction the institutions of washington failed to both. enforce the law or see the law was in force but also in just explaining to the american people what had happened there are still many sections of the scandal that we don't know the full story about or even a chunk of the story so much of this remains still something outside the historical picture that the american people have been denied we don't really know who did what and why and even how. i got flags how very new york president went to find out rather people remember on the thing about the biggest current of the reagan presidency.

america is a hypocrisy do you think that the world knows that this is a hypocrisy. i guess we know a little bit about it but sometimes i find us to be very naive and we are not really enough to wear over everything that's going on out there they were in a war with iraq so you know we were we thought that they were they were the good relative good. in iraq was the you know the bad guys you know it's just the whole it's ridiculous if we change our definition of of who's good and who's bad to suit our needs when ever doesn't that kind of make good and bad relative and meaningless absolutely it's almost thirty years ago so there in thirty years someone can go from being an ally to an enemy well unfortunately that happens yeah so we should probably be more careful with whom we give arms to that is a very good old. savation but then again you never know which side of the regime you fall when you support something on one of the issues of u.s.
