kill it's spectacular mission. and the big question of why didn't make these changes before finally the problem grew to such a spectacular stage that they could no longer ignore the attacks of groom because first of all they've been as they now admit ending people to these forces without venting and secondly because there are just greater proximity in third because there is greater stress both stress on the afghan soldiers and police stress on the us forces which helps them behave in ways that broke the afghan soldiers and police i think the deeper question is you know what can we learn from this about u.s. policy and the credibility of the generals who are always told to defer to the generals the generals ever control until there are some spectacular episode that shows that they don't have
8:08 am
a situation to be drawn what should we conclude from that about western in particular u.s. policy i think that is really where the focus of the west should be and you know what are we going to do to change that policy which is so clearly spectacularly failed. so i have for you later this hour daily anti-monarchy demonstrations rock band as thousand strong marchers filled the streets with riot police often turning peaceful protests ugly. clothes the children's cartoon classics that may now be suitable for adults a new age rating system for t.v. programs and russia animated anger. just after assuming his new responsibilities the new international peace envoy to syria has described his job as near impossible like that of brahimi went on to say that not enough is being done to stop the violence both on the side of the

government and the rebels and as the death toll rises so do the streams of refugees fleeing syria to join the hundreds of thousands who have already left the situation has become so dire that jordan and the u.n. have appealed for seven hundred million dollars to help provide care and support sanctions to make ordinary life difficult in syria with canada alone ramping up its measures against damascus ten times this year. on a boycott reports it's now up to syrian farmers to act as a last line of defense against a humanitarian catastrophe. reaping the harvest of economic isolation and a good one farmers across syria are is busy as ever collecting to foods of their labor decades of economic sanctions haven't taught syria to rely on no one but itself at least when it comes to agricultural production and there are no sour grapes about it now while the political pressure on syria is mounting this country
8:10 am
is still fully able to feed its people. almost everything that adds up on syrian tables is growing here in the country south far from the clashes and this year spared the usual drought. these fields are probably the government's best had against all sort of foreign pressure aiming to undermine its support base. syria has experienced sanctions since the 1980's and it has told the country to be self-sufficient now i agree culture is well structured we have all the seeds fertilizers and water if they haven't been damaged by the sanctions or by the ongoing clashes i can say that agriculture still remains among the sectors least affected by the clashes well this place still looks like a sanctuary of peace the actual war is heard here all too well seventy three year old jimmy webb says he understands the young who want their country to change what he can't accept is there means that. people who are misled and hold weapons fight
8:11 am
the government and destabilize the country are wrong i hope they'll calm down we all need peace to return to syria. polarized in so many levels the syrian conflict has also drawn the line between villagers and city dwellers as violence continues in urban areas people in the countryside are working hard to feed the two warring parties attacking villagers out in rural areas isn't going to really help them in accomplishing their task which is to try to get assad out of out of power and so i think that's certainly not going to get the syrian people on their side so i think that the attacks are being concentrated in urban areas where they have the greatest chance to affect syria economically and potentially to strike at the military targets in the lap or clashes are still the order of the day but twenty kilometers west mohammad is trying to preserve one of his family's to be colonies the other
8:12 am
and here homes is thought to have been destroyed they couldn't access it for more than six months. they don't want to come into politics it's too dangerous now all i can say is they think using weapons was the biggest mistake was the. syrian beekeepers are absolutely convinced that a beast as superior to all foreign species and i believe it to withstand hardship and the blight of their pastures and as clashes in the north continue taking that toll on the industry many here hope that there is the only answer of syrian peace will also be transferred today it's not artsy syria. but the main focus on syria but mainstream media is not so all seeing seems to keep messing what's happening in bahrain another arab state that's been engulfed by protests for over a year now dozens of anti-government protesters happened clashing with riot police west of the country's capital this comes days after thousands of people swapped the

creative for an adult audience graphic and really explicit content is often watched when children something which russian religious leaders try to put a stop to. people usually associate themselves with fictional characters they see on t.v. and if adults can understand and analyze that for children the characters both positive and negative are models which they absorb and take with them in order for the new forces t.v. radio online media to market the programs that are showing way for each category ranging from six. moreover programmes depicting things like sex drugs and so on can now only be shown after eleven pm and. there's just one problem. there is a paragraph in this which is supposed to explain which content this applies to and we should doesn't like for example information of cultural historic value but
8:20 am
stipulation is written so loosely nobody understands exactly what's cultural value and what sort of information is of such value. since the law doesn't give a list of films which are of special value potentially even the classics. remission could have banned for children like one theme a series of. the wolf sometimes smokes tobacco. it's absurd that cartoons were used to me not only humane there into treating children in a positive way and smoking is merely a quibble it's up to media outlets to discern for themselves which programs can be shown when and what age waiting to give them but an official commission will be tasked with any breaches of the guidelines the penalties include a fine of up to six thousand dollars and even the possibility of the suspension of the stations broadcasting license for three months many people agree an initiative

8:24 am
a look at the russian markets you'll see what i'm talking about now is also despite something in the oil price we're seeing that it's them particularly well especially in the my success concern getting almost on the per side of the sour now i was talking about the oil flies and. earlier in the day we saw again spot now in five percent decline seven surely but now we see the mixed picture light sweet losing just a notch and the brant blend still going higher now and then just in fact about here in russia oil output i'll continue talking about oil but you can look at me now when it comes to oil hit a post soviet record and in fact private and state companies extracted their combined ten million barrels a day for the month of august and we're seeing that production is rising as we have companies trying to benefit from the fact that our high for this month now let's move on to as i was saying the business really is getting ready for the kickoff of the summit was a unique bridge one position between europe and asia actually learned
8:25 am
a helping hand at the summit and ahead of the actual summit we caught up with one of the biggest industrial holdings in russia that's suma group and the person that we spoke to said that there is a great potential in the region let's take a listen. chairing apec russia demonstrated that it is capable of using its soft power our initiatives in regional integration transportation food security and innovation growth have been supported by all other business council members russia will only be able to fully capitalize on its role of a geographic land bridge between europe and asia if it improves its own infrastructure and regulations at the moment less than one percent of all trade volumes between those two parts of the world a chance ported by russian territory it's literally nothing of the projects we are offering to develop will enable russia to increase the volume of transit through its territory by up to five percent. how will your company culture be out in the
8:26 am
development of business in the region what. we started to large scale asia oriented projects in the far east we are building coal and grain terminals we think that after last year's tsunami in japan demand for russian coal will rise as it will be just as l.n.g. substituting for nuclear power stations going out of service as for the grain terminal well russia has enough grain to increase its exports from the current twenty five million tons to forty however in russia's far east existing infrastructure only allowed to export seventy thousand tons last year and we will be able to export over one hundred times more. of the main problems that russia has over in the order to be able to capitalize on it. like a still in the rate order. which is to make russia more attractive for international cargo flows we need to solve the problem of insufficient railway access to ports that keep cargo idle on the tracks for days before it gets on board
8:27 am
a ship customs regulations are another issue it takes almost two weeks for a container to get customs clearance almost the same amount of time as. it takes to transport it from blood it will stop to moscow once we improve services and customs procedures brushes a tentative cargo route such as the chance siberian railway and the northern syria it will become attractive for international businesses. and of course we'll have more exclusive interviews for the apec summit as that all kicks off there we have a correspondent there live updates all that's coming up but for now back to you karen in the car and thanks for that update. and i'll be back with a recap of our top stories in just a couple minutes. sigrid

8:29 am
around russia we've got the future covered i had a family i lived in a fairly nice community it wasn't rich it was an upscale it was just like you know the society. then they started showing up what happened was my company decided i could get cheap labor and they get rid of. these are. the rules of the eaglets love legally we have to get up every morning we have to go to work and you know we have to pay our bills and we have to do it and it gets just the american dream and if you want the american dream you have to go by the laws i figure is here's one of the major trails in that state so that. i watch and they run run down my property and you about this the more you see. all these people. and the wire is protecting the country i'm the kind of guy who doesn't mind goodness pay and sturdy so i come out here you know we're all immigrants as well know that
8:30 am
we all came from somewhere else. and i welcome to you know aren't as they are here in moscow on top stories the world's two largest armies those of india and china vale plans to work more closely leading western countries on an average over their growing influence in the pacific . boss now wants london to explain its move to ben nelsons of russian officials from entering the u.k. over their allegedly role in the muck made some the case for died in custody. and the u.s. suspends training of some afghan security personnel after a surgeon insider attacks on coalition forces that's as nato admits it's failed to
8:31 am
conduct a thorough background checks on local recruits. as the tension around. the third holiest site in islam continues to build r.t. talks to dr shaikh somebody former guard mufti of jerusalem and palestine who thinks that the israeli government is deliberately targeting the sacred site. what we have said. she thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. israel allows was one was to make programmed to mecca but on the other hand it for birds men under the age of fourteen from entering the mosque during ramadan to play on fridays how do you explain this contradiction. the suburb this contradiction is due to the fact that they let our brothers who live in the areas in one nine hundred forty eight carry out the harsh susie's their legal right there are also
8:32 am
some political benefits to be gained from demonstrating that there is freedom of religion x. as for the. rules of the strictest their senses on their territory for love it was situated somewhere else that no such measures would be taken against it now the focus is on. the occupation authorities on criticized only for that the most of their actions deserve criticism and you have said that jewish authorities are trying to sensitize was them sensitivities to access why do you say this. hell israeli or cubans are trying to make it seem like the al aqsa mosque is not really that important they say that muslims have the holy cities of mecca and medina so they don't need to rush limbaugh. they also want to weaken the link between muslims and palestine since i lack so connects one point five billion muslims to jerusalem and palestine this link is made of belief and faith they think
8:33 am
that if they weaken that link loosely and are going to lose interest in our own reality though what the muslims that don't live in afghanistan and who are mostly bears they know is in danger as are their beliefs and so whatever the occupants do to diminish alex's significance is bound to fail. that you have also said that if the israeli government and fanatical jewish groups since a weak muslim reaction they see this as a green light to move forward so what in fact should muslims do now sadly muslim countries are now more concerned with their domestic issues neglecting the issue i'm not sure in jerusalem and allowing israeli or key points to carry out their plans and they have quite a few of those including the jewish organization of jerusalem and taking control over. there making the most of the numerous domestic problems that the arab and muslim countries are busy addressing right now so they can carry out their plans without any resistance. why do you believe that you are the muslim worlds first
8:34 am
line of defense against israeli and jewish ambitions in jerusalem. the thing is jerusalem is isolated from other palestinian territories palestinians from the west bank and gaza strip are not allowed into the city not that the only people who can get into the palestinians who live in the areas occupied in one hundred forty eight that they can do that because they live there so it's only the people who live in jerusalem in the areas that i mentioned you can come to iraq. these are the people who protected coordinate action to preserve it so if these people stop going to iraq well there will be no one left to protect it that we are grateful to them for what they do their leisure that what do you think about israeli claims that the wall and checkpoints are there for security reasons. why the israelis claim that the wall was built for security reasons have nothing to do the reality this is not true because they do not observe the nineteen sixty
8:35 am
seven borders about it they have occupied a lot of palestinian territory in addition to those that were seized in nineteen forty eight and secondly making all people feel like prisoners is not the way to solve security issues the way to do that is to ensure security of all people as well as grant them full human rights a way that would be a fair approach is not a solution of the year over the years have the israelis changed their treatment of palestinians wanted to come and pray at al aqsa mosque minister that i am a little balmoral plenty and the occupation regime treats palestinians in a way which is far from humane cruel oppressive they don't have mercy for this one issue that's not reported in the media i'm talking about palestinian women who don't always get a chance to give one other thing hospital occupants not ambulances at checkpoints and sometimes because of these delays ambulances cannot get to the women in labor on time as
8:36 am
a result they cannot give birth at the medical facility sometimes the baby dies and even the mother herself can bleed to death and we have very disturbed over three hundred cases of human behavior on the part of israel and the florida keys up associate that i have met with a number of delegations are american scholars and i asked them if they have ever heard of this and they all said no the western zionist media do not report these cases and i the only one is that these checkpoints are set up to inflict more suffering to kill unborn babies whose mothers to give birth on the way to hospital them how far has the israeli digging and i'll ask some mask on and how much of a problem is that to the structure of the building i'll have for the. i'll have for the. next give a shit more extensive they are digging into directions from seal one going south and to the west of the mossad but again because of this digging that houses a muslim artifacts get damaged i look at it actually they haven't discovered.
