good evening you're watching a weekly here not with me andrew farm. now syria's chemical weapons must be removed or destroyed by the middle of next year under a deal reached by the us and russia there are six key points in the ground breaking agreement so let's take a look at what they are firstly the exact quantity of syria's chemical weapons will be determined and put under international control but first syria will have to submit a full list of its stockpiles within a week after that these arms can be destroyed under the chemical weapons can convention international inspectors will get immediate access to weapons storage facilities to begin the destruction process and if syria doesn't comply it could lead to a chapter seven u.n. security council resolution which langage the use of force but as artie's and he said now he reports this still doesn't necessarily mean that the threat of a u.s. strike is no longer looming over syria signed sealed and if delivered it could
12:02 pm
see syria hand over its chemical weapons stockpiles russia and the u.s. agreed on a six point plan after a week of talks i think the main factor is the willingness of russia to take responsibility and russia taking the lead russia making some proposal this is really changing the whole figure of the whole fiona me of the of the situation the plan is seen as a last diplomatic push to prevent a military intervention into syria there can be no games no room for avoidance or anything less than full compliance by the regime in the event of noncompliance we have committed to impose measures under chapter seven within the u.n. security council all sides including rebel groups will be responsible for the safety

of international inspectors and will have to provide free access to the sites. of course this does not mean every time a violation is reputed actions will be taken with a massively who first have to verify such reports spirally because there are a lot of fabrications along these surrounding this issue and we have to be very careful if russia is still wary of u.s. threats of course but more than welcomes the u. turn in war rhetoric from the white house obama seemed more than ready during tack at the r word when he was forced to back off on a policy that very a week ago he was committed to want a bombing campaign and i think the russian leadership and the american people have boxed a minute but some experts aren't convinced that this step by the ousted regime with u.s. and russian support will be enough it also has some american commentators pointed out leaves the way open to do to assert what the americans did to gadhafi could

offer after all agreed to give up his chemical weapons his various of the noncommercial weapons and then a few years later he was attacked and the rebels immediate rejection of these latest diplomatic efforts makes it clear their pursuit for foreign intervention is not over damascus now has until next weekend to provide the u.n. with a complete list of its stockpiles if i also continues to cooperate will it be enough to push for peace without the cooperation of the rebels and their supporters and he's now a r.t. moscow well on wednesday russia's president stated his case against military intervention in syria to the american people an open letter published by the new york times to me putin laid at the reasons saying such a move would not only be ineffective but also dangerous and there's already a response being planned by one of america's high profile politicians in sea france has more now about what the russian president had to say. one of the biggest parts

of it was the need for international law that the united nations should not go the way of the league of nations it's got to be valid then he went on to speak about the poisonous gas possibly used in syria itself and the danger surrounding the way we go in and deal with that let's listen to what he wrote about that no one doubts the poison gas was used in syria but there is every reason to believe it was used not by the syrian army but by the opposition forces to provoke intervention by the foreign patrons who would be siding with the fundamentalists reports that militants are preparing another attack this time against israel cannot be ignored another thing he addresses that to garner a strong reaction from many americans was what is so often heard in american political speeches it's that of the so called american exceptionalism that since
12:06 pm
america is often motivated to act based on moralistic reasons it is therefore exceptional greater better or separate and he points out that that is a very slippery slope and a dangerous mentality for any any nation to have it is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional whatever the motivation different but when we ask for the lord's blessings we must not forget the gold created just equal media has turned out reports of senator mccain expressing a wish to pen his own editorial in russian publication probably the however a little confusion popped up because it wasn't known whether he was referencing probably the printed publication the communist party mouthpiece all through soviet times and it must be said not exactly in new york times of russian media however there is another problem prob rue the news website at times very of on guard now however surprise the russian public may have been hearing this one person stepped

welcome back now believing american university johns hopkins has ordered one of its professes to take down a blog post criticizing the national security agency professor of cryptography matthew green voiced his concerns over the methods the agency uses to defeat encrypt the official who wanted the removal of the post later apologized for the incident after receiving a barrel of complaints but we spoke to professor green who told us what was behind his message. what we learned is that the n.s.a. has a hard time breaking crips and so what they've done is they've actually tried to take the products that that perform and corruption and make them worse make them weaker so that it's easier for them to break that encryption the n.s.a. is is willing to make us security a little bit weaker because remember it's not just you know non u.s. citizens are using these products it's americans too and they're willing to you know in a sense put our credibility on the line our tire industry on the line in order to access that communications of whoever it is they want to listen to we have

a big debate ahead of us how much spying i mean there is there's a range anywhere from zero percent spying to one hundred percent spying and i think we have to figure out what the right balance is i think what we're learning is that the american public is not comfortable with what we're learning about that balance beam on in britain university students on having most of that electronic life monitored in that school is not only previously concerns but also sparking a debate about had they collected data could actually be used or were smith has the story. remember the film minority report it's the one where tom cruise is a cop in the future and uses pass in the day to stop crimes before they happen while the fictional feature is now universities are out allies in the electronic trail of students how often they use the library what books they get out even where they park their cars to create a picture of them and how they learn and they use the data in different ways the different you need for marketing courses but also to predict which students are

depression but to have a decade on how the lumen lessons been luddites what it seems the risk taken habits are hard to shake just last year will see its biggest bank j.p. morgan chase lost at the six billion dollars on credit default swaps which the bank tried to cover up there's also been accusations of improper and if you try to report the bank children of chinese officials to help with business and several cases of misleading customers on identity theft products and mortgages as well all together these legal disputes will cost the bank just under seven billion dollars a teeny tiny paid out for a bank with assets of two point four trillion dollars so now i'm joined by young from d.v. advisors so patrick tell me have the lessons been a. fundamentally when it comes to lehman. i think we can safely say that nobody's learned any lessons from this escapade whatsoever government overall has simply
12:27 pm
missed the object they've ended up actually in the back pockets of the banks fundamentally the banks themselves haven't realised the fact that they have to change indeed if we want to look at this from a big picture in history standpoint the thing that the collapse of lehman smart is the absolute peak power from now on it's the power of networks disinter mediating the banks that will challenge the financial monopoly government doesn't understand this the bankers don't want to accept it and have we learned our lessons sadly not see the governance felt that the bankers have too much power. oh fundamentally i think banks have ended up in an incredibly toxic alliance with governments and that's a fundamental problem for society it's not that we don't need money we need money we need capitalism but we don't and we should not have a situation where any industry is fundamentally subsidized by the government and
12:28 pm
when it makes mistakes the government rushes in to help it the fundamental flaw of lehman and what came after it was this sudden massive industry whether in the usa or whether in the european union of bailing out the banks suicidal socialist politicians such as gordon brown in the united kingdom collectivize the u.k. banking system in a manner that was not on the gerson to stalin the only difference was at least in the comrade stalin he would have shot a few bankers made these terrible mistakes in the first place the fact is nobody has brought the banking industry to hill and the politicians annoyed or completely pliant and common client in allowing the banks to continue making the mistakes they've made for multiple generations and starving small entrepreneurs small business of the funds they need and if we go back five years to the lehman situation do you think it was handled appropriately it should talk about
12:29 pm
governments but the government didn't actually bailouts lehman's did a lehman marked a very very interesting and beneficial moment in so far as it was a lot to fester on the vine that was the one moment the governments were acting successfully the tragedy was as the domino effect started to take place governments panicked very quickly how much money are we talking about then because it is quite mind boggling really how much money these governments have put into the banks how much are we talking and will they realistically ever get it back is that just not going to happen i think it's impossible to put a sum on the whole amount of money but what. talking of bodies most tipples of the g.d.p. of a major european nation has alternately gone into the world banking system if not more and not before we start looking at this funny money quirk of quantitative easing the governments of the world have spent hundreds and hundreds of trillions.
