mediating meanwhile the violence continues to escalate in syria there is going to have been more terrorist attacks also the rebels have been targeting military airstrips and government forces have been also replying with the mortar shelling. ok we knew that thinking he got actually got a piece in off in moscow. sectarian cracks in iraq are leading to a surge in violence across the country the sunni who used to hold power now say they are second class citizens in their own nation and they want something done about it as we report shortly. also the public versus politicians later this hour our season end of year series features the events which got russians more fired up over their government. has entered a new phase in its naval war games in the strait of hormuz which is
a vital oil shipping route the exercise involves warships submarines and jet fighters and aims to show tehran can maintain security in the region around earlier said it could block the strait effectively shutting off a fifth of world oil trade if it is attacked iran is feeling the pressure from the west as the u.s. and its allies pile on the sanctions over its nuclear program soraya poor alric is a writer and global diplomacy specialist she says iran only wants to show it is capable of protecting its borders. thirty two years war the west pacific the united states is the waves of corporate war against iran so you know why it has been preparing itself and demonstrating its group to defend itself i don't believe that you rhymed would ever take action if we see more of naval military exercises right now it's because the media is focusing on iran whereas.
earlier this month there was operation lucky mariner with twenty seven countries participating. although a lot of them were observers and they were all the way in the persian gulf or in iran as territory and the media was silent on this but when you run demonstrates its readiness to defend its sovereignty and its national interests then there is the media focus on iran. your resolutions are now being ambitious and short lived so should we just give ourselves a break. mezzo a way. forward to. the more promises we will struggle to keep join us in new york the city that really knows how to handle new year. moscow's ban on the adoption of russian children by u.s. citizens will come into effect on new year's day the bill containing the measure
was signed into law by president putin on friday the legislation also includes travel financial sanctions for certain americans as well as further restrictions for noncommercial organizations working inside russia but always in retaliation for washington's blacklist of russian officials which it links to the death of lawyer segment the magnitsky in two thousand and nine russian studies and history professor stephen f. cohen from new york i'm princeton university says he's never held any illusions about the two countries relations here is an old russian saying we're friends are also deep it's a lot of people in moscow and washington may pass the magnitsky act and now the ban on adoption in moscow may have thought they were just talking showing off playing grandstanding politically as we say in america but these words have consequence they have bet very few all this new cold war atmosphere which is enveloping the relationship between our two countries it's going to affect american relations with
russia regarding afghanistan regarding missile defense regarding syria regarding iran these are very serious matters but bomber has continued the policy toward moscow begun by president clinton a democrat and continued by president bush a republican that policy is advancing nato toward russia's borders building missile defense on russia's border. interfering in russia's interest politics most recently the street demonstrations this is the same policy we began twenty years ago with the soviet union the fundamental american policy toward russia has not changed so it's ridiculous to call long soft on moscow i mean just because two leaders get together as they always do and say we are friends it doesn't mean reality here is that the partnership we need between washington and moscow to make the world safe for all of us has not existed since the soviet union and we may be farther
from. today as a result partially of this orphanage where we have been in twenty years. forget anonymity there is one place you need to use the internet and that's china where new rules insists every web user must use their real name online we reported dot com bust the survey that says chris for christians is no longer about the birth of jesus they're not to be struck on sunday. but for most people this week's festivities have meant
a time for family decoration and the once a year spirit of goodwill in the u.s. so spare a thought for those who have little to cheer such as the eleven million french people living in poverty alexi our shared ski reports from the capital on whether the bright lights are leaving ting many citizens in the dark. it is beyond any doubt that in the daytime paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world but after dark the french capital lives up to its other name the city of lights. many parisians regard the launch of the christmas elimination as one of the most important events of any year. this year in central paris alone the famous installing christmas lights was a cheap christmas elimination because there on one million euros it shop on the shelves it is contributing to the christmas lighting depending on the number of trees they have in front of their of their shop eighty percent money money from the
day from the shops of the shows an easy. twenty percent this money city hall but the budget has gone up by a third across the whole country in a year where the average person has struggled financially the authorities say they're splashing out the extra millions to help people forget how little they have . but there is crisis there is financial difficulty people have less money to spend so we have to create a festive atmosphere to give them back the will to buy and celebrate it's clear that you're in crises in developed countries people tend to economize and spend less money so it's important to avoid this negative spiral of the economy under courage people to go ahead and spend a bit. but what if you have nothing to spend françoise cares little about how her city looks or what the biggest christmas sales are for her the whole day is all about bringing her terminally ill daughter to numerous charity events over the
festive period. to see. my daughter has leave a cancer her medication is being paid by social security but i have to pay the doctor out of my own pocket we are poor and i cannot afford that it's unacceptable they spend so much money on beauty while we are neglected. and. there were hundreds like fronts was that this charity event a recent concerning poverty in france produced some shocking figures we have. to ask the french if they felt they were heading that way only eleven percent of the french consider themselves being below the poverty line but thirty seven percent say they feel they are becoming poor the french feel that their country is slipping into decadence and social stratification is taking place. christmas is many things to many people some of the atmosphere or make you healthy you wrote for others it's about finding survival regardless of the financial state that next year
will be better than the previous and who knows maybe those in peril now may join those enjoying the. next christmas looks the rush of ski reporting from paris. well max kaiser is a man who lets no one off the hook for cultivating the gap between rich and poor here's what's coming up next hour. after stranger to exploitation of colonisation they've been ignored and they have developed some interesting products in the telecommunications space kenyan phone market is leapfrog over the traditional phone market but again once it hits critical mass it's going to be colonized by the foreigners as usual asia about the asian financial crisis of one nine hundred ninety eight there was a crisis cooked up on wall street the city of london export it to asia and blow up that economy now they're buying dollars to protect themselves against continued marauding by the opium dealing the british people who don't arrive with
opium to. the residence products for the same effect get junk securities. there is more world news on the way from sky aftershock. if you're from my generation or younger and you were born into the one percent that i have a lot of college debt i sure do you know the deal used to be that you paid a significant amount for education but in turn that gave you a much higher salary later but now the system works in reverse many young americans studied very hard to not make any money at all around nine percent of americans with student loans have defaulted and at least nine but maybe up to eighteen
percent are ninety days late with their payments given the situation the people at u.c. berkeley were nice enough to give away a million dollars in scholarships for everyone everyone that's an illegal immigrant yeah that's right if you're born in america then pay till you die but jump the border and enjoy the red carpet education treatment the people who will be getting the scholarships are mostly the children of illegal immigrants who spent many of their formative years in america and yeah i could see the logic that could be hard for them to get an education when their when they aren't citizens but they came into the country illegally it isn't taxpayers jobs to help them but wait berkeley is a private institution so i guess they can give out the money to whoever they want whenever they want however they want but berkeley management if you're watching this i would really appreciate if you chose some financial mercy to american citizens it isn't like they don't need the help but that's just my opinion.

the park right next to ours another station and i realized how. people. really turned uncontrollable. and caught in just as easily you know chaos. of people trying to get political points in the past twelve months. the best way to do that would be. one thing that was important to get across covering it is people's political flavor in this country what they did was deeply offensive to a huge number of people something that. looking at the. press release about our interview with president putin the first that he's ever given he's stirred inauguration we see dozens and dozens of calls from international media representatives and they were all asking us just one question did he say anything about the case nothing. more challenging the conversation would be of
course not. the big list of my other want to hear about his thoughts on the ongoing syrian conflict also whether the polish one of the pussy riot pump was indeed with hindsight maybe to have we had some interesting comments to make about what he thought about the russian opposition movement one of our big stories of the year the streets are available for protests. and i think it's good that people pontus about politics well politics is not a big deal of money most people who are in this country would want to be given the team's record only be good for society and i think the authorities reacted with road to the world. the world is still none the wiser as to whether america can wrestle a solution to its imminent fiscal cliff which could have far reaching ramifications president obama has charged democratic and republican senate leaders with finding a compromise to the budget impasse
