just no more a day left before america plunges off the fiscal cliff the still no deal in sight between the firmly entrenched republicans and democrats millions of americans stand to see their taxes go up dramatically on new year's day but the sticking point holding up negotiations is the rage for the rich the republicans are rejecting any deal that would see those taxes rise while the democrats insist the wealthy to pay a little more investment advisor patrick young told us the u.s.

is heading he thinks towards further recession if he can experiment. i'm really worried going into twenty thirteen i mean ultimately the great thing is that humankind will survive and we will all remain the same people but the problem we have is first of all america seems to be heading suicidally towards this thing the fiscal cliff the possibility that it may enter another leg of recession or possibly even depression as a result of legislators inability to curb their how bit of spending like footballers' wives and then on the other side of the atlantic we also have this problem the european union is getting to the point where it seems to think it's soldiers problems solving your problems means that twenty five percent of the workforce of several countries are out of work fifty plus percent of the youth of say somewhere like spain are out of work that really frightens me. and share the world talk about this next in the let your imagination run wild online for us the animated blockbusters like wall-e.

and ratatouille did selling himself the task of creating a new superhero every day of the year see something creations on a website such a bag might cheer you up but if it's a case of another day another scandal we need to look at greece twelve million euros from greece's tourist industry just when the country needs it most the reporter who's played at r.t. don't. dozens of jailed activists in bahrain who took part in anti-government protests have had their sentences reduced but the opposition's keeping up the pressure repeating its demands for the immediate release total release of all political prisoners. he spoke to some of the activists about what lies behind the unrest.

when it came to supporting calls for democracy in middle east or north african states while denouncing government sponsored violence leaders of the west were vocally critical from our graphic has lost legitimacy to lead and he must leave out a very clear message for president which is it is time for him to go but when scenes of violent clashes between riot police and reform complainer scheme from bahrain the definition of democracy shifted and rhetoric softened. in the summer of the us state department came up with a statement expressing its concerns over the human rights situation and alleged torture in bahrain this was only several months after washington had restarted weapons sales to this gulf state dissenters in bahrain have been directing anger at their government for months now stop arming the killers is a message they are more often sending out to the west some of the in bahrain blood
3:35 pm
is worthless and the libyan blood is more important it's just critical a stand so you do see from travels to europe to direct attention to what he believes to be brutal repression in his country and he and others like him have managed to alert human rights organizations but that's as far as it goes they go. clinton made a statement about bahrain about the. situation in bahrain and this. one protester was killed you know and show you that there is no impact on the ground we are a victim and bahrain because we live in a country they condemn the violence committed by the bahraini government against the peaceful to put the sword and beheading but that is still continuing for decades bahrain has been one of washington's closest allies in the gulf its naval base houses the u.s. fifth fleet and six thousand troops in a seemingly irreversible decision made decades ago despite a growing anti-american mood among some of bahrain's neighbors. anything happens
3:36 pm
the bushehr plant or any of the other plants that there are allegations of a nuclear weapon being built we are very close to all of those sites and we have to make the right decision in preventing any kind of catastrophe coming here we are all are not capable of doing that and that's why we turn to our friends and allies and officials firmly deny that washington plays a decisive role in preventing any revolution happening in bahrain but even the bahraini government's information minister suggests the us main fact be playing a double game. i think the iranian opposition is a key ally of the us leader of the opposition and the terrorist members of the opposition have close ties with foreign embassies in bahrain we can leak some of the old many documents proving that if this is true than washington sitting comfortably we can quickly switch sides but for now the opposition in bahrain is left to wonder as to why calls to support democracy from some are less worthy of
3:37 pm
attention than others like see russia ski r.t. reporting from the kingdom of bahrain. oh you stay with us all the way very soon russia's role in solving syria and how to stop war splinters a period between moscow and washington russia's foreign minister talks exclusively to us at r.t. after this break. which is slough near enough and knows that to ride a horse you've got to catch it first. for him it's a daily routine that you're soft as a horse breeder on the island of bohol and at the heart of bike of his life on an
3:38 pm
isolated farm is about blue sky green grass and his horse is worth it sometimes it gets lonely here but horses have become part of me now i've fallen off so many times sometimes they bite as well it's part of my every day life. i hornsby and home to ignore the rats locally just laugh for centuries most still live off the land cattle and fish every evening local villagers place their nets and in the morning the catch is always good. we always have enough here. or. if by call is often called the pearl of siberia and horn is said to be the pearl of by call it's all end of fake forests. if vast

staps. it's also a place of ancient traditions respected by locals and travelers alike eric with a cough and. economist turned adventurer has crisscrossed by call shores and learned its customs well. you see pillars like this to have supernatural powers every traveler who comes here all the spirits to make the journey easier give them strength and fulfill their dearest wishes. virtually undiscovered by tourists until some twenty years ago i was in a square can become a magnet for nature lovers and you will see cars but those used to five star pampering and maybe even for a surprise the island's infrastructure has yet to catch up with the growing demand here quite some way from civilization here accommodation on the island is very basic so you can forget about a t.v. or even running water for most people
3:40 pm
a tent is the only real option but for those who come here it's exactly what they're looking for. you and your need to buy coal can be unique trip of a lifetime and the local say once you've seen it you'll be coming back again and again.
3:41 pm
so you love rolph russia's foreign minister thank you very much for being with r.t. today my pleasure the year ending with a visit to india russia has been clear in its support for india's aspirations to become a permanent member of un security council how do you think the much criticized u.n. security council will benefit from india's participation. first of all i would say that criticism is not always warranted the latest wave of criticism was related to the fact that the security council allegedly cannot act on syria. by these by the desire to see some action on the part of the security council the
3:42 pm
critics want to pass the resolution under chapter seven which provides for the use of sanctions on the use of force eventually and russia and china are convinced hundred percent that this would be a disaster and that this would be the beginning of a very slippery slope and will bring us to the libyans in the area which we cannot afford anymore and the region cannot afford the security council was once expended only in the category of nonpermanent members and now. after several decades of the council functioning in the unchanged composition there is a very strong movement towards expanding its membership to better reflect the. pluralism of the of the world community and we are strongly in favor of this we are convinced that the developing countries and the first of all the new economic and financial leaders in the third world countries like india brazil for example that
3:43 pm
they must be represented in the security council and we would be in favor of making them new permanent members. provided of course the decision is taken to create new permanent seats like yours said russia is permanently blocking attempts of some of your own security council members to pass a resolution for that would allow in a foreign intervention into syria but do you think a military action could still play take place going around the un like it happened in case of iraq. well not only in case of iraq but also in case of the former yugoslavia yes it is it is possible and you just cited that one example there are some others but i also feel that those who would like to interfere in the syrian crisis they don't want to do this without some kind of
3:44 pm
legitimacy or at least would some kind often action in the united nations which could be used to justify this as being legitimate some people would like very much to internationalize this situation and to expand the violence beyond the syrian border or set them said being made to specially in cases when the refugees have to flee syria because of the disproportionate actions by the government forces. but on the other side. the opposition the armed groups of the opposition which are several which are not united on this single come on the whole series of acceptable methods absolutely contrary to international humanitarian law. they can cost. the staging terrorist attacks and that is very disheartening that our western call digs in the security council start that they
3:45 pm
refuse. condemning terrorist attacks in syria saying that yes there is ms bed but you must take into account the overall context of what is going on in syria and why people the result the terrorist attacks it's absolutely unacceptable and this logic we will might lead us if we follow this logic might lead us to a very dangerous situation not only in the middle east but in other parts of the world if. patmos and the west would begin to. qualify terrorist as. bad terrorist and acceptable terrorists one more reason that arises time to time that could actually ok the foreign intervention is serious possession of chemical weapons do you believe that syria will use chemical weapons
3:46 pm
or is this another pretext for invasion i don't believe syria would use chemical weapons it would be political. suicide for the government if it does and it is also accepted by. everybody including western colleagues the europeans and americans that the biggest threat. in this situation is. the probability that the rebels might take hold of chemical weapons and therefore when while recognizing this when our western friends say but still the responsibilities with the syrian government even if the rebels they called it it's a very strange logic because at the same time there was a very people encourage rebels not to negotiate with the government but to continue fighting and giving them arms money and moral and political support so it's
3:47 pm
a very controversial position. in general the logic of those who say no negotiations with us it is really very controversial and very dangerous because. well they're not justifying what the government is doing they have been making a lot of mistakes have been using force disproportionately the security forces clearly war. are prepared to face the public. protests and the protests in the cities and in the villages they have been threatening you know to call into foreign aggression not to keep law and order civilized men there but the opposition is provoking the government as i said resorting to terrorist attacks taking hostages and also introducing into this conflict the stick there in
3:48 pm
a mansion which is very dangerous it is already reverberating in the muslim world. arab currents. and b. and that's nick and confessional sic their income position of syria is so complex that if. the campus is established there it was very great all over the region but coming back to the present situation if people who say you know negotiations with us and. if they believe that. he's departure in whatever form is number one priority then they must understand that for this job political goal of theirs they would have to pay the price but the price in the lives of the serious of the syrian civilians nato is the claimant of patrick miss out on turkish syrian border is that part of solution and where they
3:49 pm
really targeted that we recognize the right for turkey to think about its own security and the right of turkey to use for this purpose the international arrangements which turkey has in that particular case nato membership. and we accepted this as a given. on the other hand the more military to be are you accumulate in one place. the more risk you have that this one day would be used . as for the. purpose of this deployment yes i read here that some experts believe that if it is intended to prevent any. syrian crossfire. then that could be positioned to be different and as it is in the visage to be positioned
3:50 pm
some people say it is quiet. useful to put the. american radar which is part of the american missile defense system that building codes in the threat from iran. if this is the case then it is even more risky i would say because this multiple purpose deployment. could create additional. temptations that about iran rather than syria well that's what that's what some people say. the configuration as it is being presented in the media it. really looks like it could be used against their own you know syria is not the only issue between america and russia first think obama did when he got reelected is that he signed the so-called magnitsky that would sanction
3:51 pm
russian citizens and some russian officials what does it tell you about the mistake if they russia u.s. relations with putting a bomb at the helm but i don't think this was the first thing about one hundred years was really like that this was inevitable with. the senators senator cardin and some other centered use this idea that it was clearly. to create catch twenty two for the administration because that ministration was moving the removal of jacksonville amendment with the support of quite a number of people on the heel. and this was absolutely obvious that americans wanted because it was russia accession to w two. keeping jackson verdict would mean depriving the american companies of the benefits of. membership of the russian federation so they had to do this anyway and then the republicans i
3:52 pm
think decided to have this trick and to hinge the jackson very. remove all on magnitsky act which was at that moment i think most of it. done against president obama. because as for the russian citizens who have been included on that list and they haven't seen that it's still. not published. if they want to prevent russian citizens they don't like to enter the united states they can do it without their children having hands without any show well remember the off record conversation that obama and mediates had and obama promised to be more flexible right after elections but from what you're saying how how how much flexible can he really be or allow himself to be with this republican opposition in congress well i think that's
3:53 pm
the peculiarities of the american system and in a congressman can freeze consideration of. very important issues just because the beef from his particular state is not being admitted to one country or another for the senate the reasons and. the issues of global importance could be just frozen because of the. interest of one single state in the united states. the interest having nothing to do with the substance of the issue in question. so sometimes the issues of huge importance like the you know the israeli palestinian conflict and the need to settle it being the just for years and years. because of the
3:54 pm
peculiarity of the american electoral cycles we would prefer. to approach international issues on the basis of the their merit and on the basis of the crying need to do something together was out looking back at your domestic politicking interests so you are both russia's foreign minister thank you very much for this interview thank you. the government no longer represents the. people who are going to take such.
3:55 pm
