welcome back you are with the our team here is a reminder of the top stories a massive syrian military forces allegedly preparing a final assault to crush the defined roles stronghold in aleppo the city seen sporadic fighting in shelling over the past week with insurgents claiming to hold more than half of its districts. the trial the female punk group pussy riot and jurors it's second week whether the fans are expected to continue making its case the three women are facing up to seven years in prison after pulling an anti put in stunt and russia's main or of the excuse feed. and here since last august
12:31 am
destructive rides said london ablaze man i believe the issues that so far the unrest have yet to be addressed one nurse feel unemployment and biting hysteria in poor areas could cause a repeat at any time. of us with headlines here in r t next i want are you with us congressman dana rohrabacher has some strong criticism of washington's foreign policy especially towards china. we are saying that one congressman dana rohrbacher u.s. representative from california forty sixth district also a former official with president reagan's administration congressman thank you so much for sitting down with us i want to focus today on some foreign policy issues so let's start right away with china i know you've been a staunch critic of the way the u.s. relationship with china has evolved how would you rate that relationship today well
12:32 am
we're getting our just rewards for having those stupid policy we have built china into a major economic power without demanding to any type of political reforms we've given the most favored nation status when we want a free trade we permitted them to steal our technology they get away with murder quite literally economically or figures certainly economically but quite literally . you know in reality when they're murdering dissidents and taking the people religious dissenters like the falun gong and throwing them in their prison so what we've got is we've created a monster what was a very weak country before we are permitted to build into a massive economic power with the course are a lot of our own industrial leaders making a profit by doing that well i was just about to say you know along those lines
12:33 am
china was only one of a handful of countries actually exempt from u.s. sanctions these are countries who were importing crude oil from iran china doing that but was example why is that why you know these policies how do they benefit the u.s. well i think it. is a horrible double standard that we have what. we have heaped on russia all kinds of requirements and restrictions and mandates if they're going to get anything. you know if it's the repeal of jackson van eyck which should have been done twenty years ago which less most favored nation status while china has had no liberalization at all and russia's had enormous liberalization their churches are fold aoun you have opposition groups in opposition papers and russia you have nothing like that in china whatsoever but let's be honest china has in many cases taken up the debt of the u.s. has come to lend it helping hand i'm always ready to mouth but also to be very
12:34 am
aware that we bend over backwards for these people before they had our debt we have we are the ones who created them into an economic power and which they could. loan money back to the united states so it is there are there is a certain member of big business that in this country who have profited greatly by the china trade the average working people have lost out greatly because the jobs that they should have in manufacturing have gone over to china and the technology that they paid for in their taxes the r. and d. has gone to china for free who specifically has benefited in this country well you've got some very big businesses who've established manufacturing units in china and they do so thinking that they're going to go from my ten percent profit to a twenty percent profit well in the long run. the people who own the stock get it so lose out because the chinese confiscate some of the properties over there and
12:35 am
our own working people because they lose manufacturing jobs and then there's maybe the c.e.o. puts a couple million dollars in his pocket as a bonus and then after a year or two fades away even though the long term result has been catastrophic for for his company what is your concern if these policies continue are you worried that it could have a negative impact on the u.s. i think it to be a negative impact on the whole world to have the world's. worse human rights abuse are which china is. to have enormous economic power and transferring that to military power and i think you will find that china is becoming is already becoming much more aggressive than it was twenty years ago and i think you'll find that places whether it's russia will find for example that china will start making claims again to territories that were taken at the time of the czars from china
12:36 am
china now claims all of the south china sea they claim huge areas in the india that's the size of texas this is a regime that's made arrogant land claims and i might say frightening lie and claim flat land claims because if they try to move forward based on those claims nobody's will come close to a war and i think russia and all the other countries surrounding china had better start thinking about the future and realizing when as they gets more powerful it's going to become a much greater threat to them let's switch over to afghanistan i know you recently had a trip planned there president karzai thought ah congressman rohrabacher is not welcome here what had you planned to do when you went and why do you think president hart i don't want to see you well president karzai is a stooge of the pakistanis all right he is their boy in afghanistan and by the way our state department. just kisses up the pakistanis and has been doing so for
12:37 am
the last thirty years which is one of the major reasons we've had problems down there but isn't that one of the major reasons that that the us needs to do that is to keep the borders open to be able to get you know the flow of goods to afghanistan where the troops. who wants to be in afghanistan i mean why should anybody the russians should understand how that that is a rotten place for people to station their foreign troops. there. they're not going to make any friends and the afghans traditionally when they open their eyes and they see foreign troops around them they say i don't like them and i don't want them here in my country and. what we've god is afghanistan has been manipulated policy has been reliably manipulated by pakistan and i think that my recognition that the government that this was a stablished after nine eleven and afghanistan does not reflect. the values of the
12:38 am
afghan people themselves and so it's a totally different structure it's a centralized system where afghans demand more centralized authority in their village and tribal leaders and karzai of course has no basis support so as i'm pointing those things out and the fact that he's so tied into the pakistanis. cars i didn't want me around so he exercised is just to be clear you think that you the u.s. should not be in afghanistan at all i think that right now we should get our butts out of afghanistan as quickly as we can so that as few americans are lose their lives in afghanistan as is. as as possible if you have some perspective on this i know that you you know when you worked with reagan back in the late night plane eighty four in afghanistan against you or as it was over watching from russian t.v. i mean i i think that i was there with the mujahideen and where you also said the
12:39 am
taliban wanted to form and wanted to establish a disciplined moral society what happens but now that quote what happened was i was opposing the taleban every step of the way and the taliban were not the mujahideen who defeated the soviet union the the the tell about a creation of pakistan's military intelligence so you cannot support the taliban and never. never but there's a couple two or three quotes that have come out. because i was opposing them and then it was a fait accompli they took over kabul and i tried to put. the most hopeful about clothes as they could be out for two or three weeks and then the back of the taliban started acting the way i always knew they would i had opposed them every step of the way they got power i tried to put the best face on it for
12:40 am
a couple weeks but after that i went to work in the one nine hundred ninety s. creating the coalition against the taliban based on the king of afghanistan and what later became the northern alliance so all of this nonsense about according to interviews i did and was trying to be optimistic but it didn't turn out well things change certainly as far as afghanistan goes i mean you said that we should get our butts out as fast as possible a lot of people are starting to be concerned that when if and when that happens there's just going to be a crazy ridiculous civil war that all the factions are already preparing their reporting on this are ready preparing their training they're putting up weapons and then it's going to be back to the soviet. afghanistan and has a very. wise culture and decentralized system of power and they have ethics. groups that have lived next to one another for centuries and the think groups of no they have to have be have arms because they
12:41 am
call them warlords but in fact what they are armed ethnic leaders who protect their people from attacks from other ethnic groups that's why it's been for century after century after century so there's nothing wrong with these people having arms they always will that's their culture but what's happened is that you have pakistan trying to working through an alliance with one ethnic group the push to trying to. and all of afghanistan that's what the taliban were all about wouldn't tell them and took over kabul thirty thousand of these quote taliban were actually pakistani troops dressed up as taleban and yeah if when the united states leaves the most important thing is that those people who have opposed the telly are not left vulnerable and we can do that we can do that very easily could make sure that. we do not leave for example we can work with those in the northern alliance that
12:42 am
defeated the taliban originally and make sure they can defend themselves all right congressman dana rohrabacher from california forty six thanks and that's right. and claude how can the truth be revealed if. there was a very bright day to the servicemen who were given no problem protection to the
