2:02 am
in battle day by day in the town of kona we heard stories from the fog of war this is small settlement in the mopti region was seized by the more yo tribe they fled to the north when french troops showed up but it's reported that the cost of that victory was high while french planes killed only two rebels the number of civilian casualties was an estimated fourteen he said i wasn't home when the bombing began i started praying when i learned my house was under attack they ruined everything i had my family and my livelihood my wife's name was i mean she was forty my son ali was eleven when adam was ten and say no god was six they all died. as honest. people such as this farmer idris ask themselves if the victory was worth it. we also met the campo family who had suffered badly when the bombing began everyone

2:05 am
dirty work in a continent where china has been establishing an economic presence now very successfully for a large number of years so there is a ground ball for africa isn't there is it just to grab the resources yes it is obvious that the securing of energy resources is one of the key factors behind many if not most political developments today and that's why i say that the of course the issue of hydrocarbons and uranium and other energy sources is a key and may even be the decisive factor. people in oil rich gulf states enjoy a high standard of living because they're sitting on a treasure chest of natural resources but countries such as bahrain and kuwait haven't been in you into popular and rest resorting to violent crackdowns against protesters who want more of the same asking is this a cap and examines now at all struggles plaguing the people of the prosperous
2:06 am
kingdom. yes you. see. my life in the gulf used to look like this. but the black gold hidden beneath the sands transforms the arabian states from inhospitable deserts came storing structures of glass and steel physical testaments to their wealth and power in a wider region known for its tinderbox tensions the gulf monarchies have stood out for their relative stability and for an oil dependent west eager for a military stronghold to counter on the gulf became a strategic away says petro dollars to help to insulate the gulf against economic hardships plaguing other states but not against popular uprisings now the gulf monarchies as a whole have been struggling to stave off the effects of the arab spring with varying degrees of success kuwait is largely seen as the most tolerant of the gulf countries but the worry is that the trend could be reversed activists say that it
2:07 am
already has been political gatherings of more than twenty people are banned as are political parties and when the last opposition dominated parliament challenge the ruling authorities it was dismissed voting rules were changed to ensure critics say a more compliant parliament speaking out against the system has landed many activists in jail just as for those who took to the streets to protest we were beaten up by. the special forces team and the sound bombs and but all and and after the modish whoever it is on the street is it just being detained and thrown into jail it's a struggle activists in bahrain are all too familiar with. three days after egypt's former president was ousted from power protests began in both frames like the kuwaitis they weren't demanding an end to the monarchy but more representation at a violent crackdown saw a shift in some of those demands because the new law to stop it is that the elite
2:08 am
in many different it is against the regime. against that he took the ship i didn't stand the situation i don't know one thousand five hundred there's another we have . every day we have a lot of. security forces surrounding the gate is attacking the people are taking their houses as in other gulf states the monarchy blames the unrest on a radical minority they are hardliners they want to see regime change they want to implement their own style of government and impose on the rest of the population. a system of government that is unacceptable these demands called for a. minster style democracy captain hill style democracy in being go but critics disagree saying the protesters simply want their governments to listen i want to comes to violent crackdowns he says westminster and capitol hill simply turn a blind eye without
2:09 am
a victims because we live in their country which have already so the us and the united states and the u.k. they don't get aboard the people they don't care about the humanity they don't care about the bahraini blood they care about. whether in bahrain saudi arabia qatar oman or kuwait seems like this one are becoming increasingly more common but nasa shows a power outage like this one show that the dots well wolf alone isn't enough to insulate the countries from people taking to the streets and demanding a greater say in their political system and unless the monarchies show themselves willing to listen their stability may prove to be a mirage you see caffein of r.t. kuwait. as john kerry begins his time as the new u.s. secretary of state has been revealed that many of the ambassadors serving under him were major donors to the president's campaign a new report says this year's competition among big money bankers to land the most sought after diplomatic schools was especially tight also he's going to check on.
2:10 am
as you can imagine the competition for diplomatic post is tough especially in safe and wealthy countries somewhere in western europe and asia a recent study by two professors of international relations at pennsylvania state university looked at available information on president obama's donors direct political contributions and the positions that they received and they concluded that those whose political connections to president obama were measured in dollars for the administration service had an increased chance of representing the united states and western europe and a smaller chance of serving in say central asia or sub-saharan africa donors and advisers involved in the diplomatic selection process say the competition this year has been so tight that those who have raised less than a million dollars are for the most part unlikely to be considered so what is the quote unquote price tag for the highly sought diplomatic posts according to this study friends and monaco topped the list with
2:11 am
a level of personal contributions at six point two million dollars quote unquote the price for a position in the u.k. the authors find appears to lie between six hundred fifty thousand dollars and two point three million dollars a posting in luxembourg is valued as three point one million dollars and appointment to portugal was predicted to have a value of around six hundred thousand dollars like all modern presidents before him president obama has appointed friends and donors to about thirty percent of diplomatic posts while seventy percent of the posts go to career diplomats so judging by this research career diplomats go to places like yemen while big donors go to monaco nobody of course calls it bribery here these are just respectable donors who get what they want when they pay the price. panic over immigration the u.k. makes to put all ball gary is khomeini and britain as public citizen negative propaganda

2:15 am
security funds is also being a record along the frontier with syria on the golan heights but many see this as an exploration of syrian territory and dr germ awwad him thanks it has very little to do with security. imposing a buffer zone will make israel and the future. negotiate over withdrawing from this buffer zone rather than withdrawing from the golan heights this is very similar to the attempt of israel in one thousand seven hundred two by un impose a buffer zone in south lebanon where it was the same claim that it wanted to defend its northern border derrida objective is to annex more territories and at the same time and to threaten damascus so. israel extends its domain by another seven kilometers this will make it reach close
2:16 am
very close to damascus this is very dangerous for the stability of the region and where it will give the insurgents like three years on three base a secure base to launch attacks against the syrian regime so this is a direct and the moment of israel. and online for you now web site rule is out there rules i should say bad to be broken if you're the american president barack obama has claimed the right to launch cyber attacks on whichever country he wants even if there is no concrete evidence of a threat so had to outright call for the details. and also that decision in pakistan while some of bin laden was killed is to get a fund make over to improve its image about antti dot com to find out what the former home of the world's most wanted terrorist is in mind. it's cold and wet so you really shouldn't come that's the message the u.k.

a bad influence on social cohesion and some ministers have suggested limiting remaining in symbolic ariens access to health services and housing when they arrive as you can imagine not all the romanians living in the u.k. are cleaning the toilets some of them are highly qualified even to understudies there so they find this a very aggressive and under society campaign really whether or not the anti britain campaign will ever make it to a billboard near bucharest is now beside the point the british government has already made the ease newest members feel that little bit less welcome here. r.t. london. now to some other stories from around the world at least two children have been injured by a current grenade in the northern kosovo city of mitrovica a boy and a girl aged three and nine suffered tropical wounds when the grenade was thrown through a window of their home by. her skate it was
