a church account has the story. terrorist attacks have more thing since two thousand and one when the u.s. began its war on terror the number of attacks and fatalities has reached a record high the national consortium for the study of terrorism and responses to terrorism estimates last year alone there were more than eight thousand five hundred terrorist attacks worldwide they killed more than fifteen thousand five hundred people across africa asia and the middle east you walk faces an incredible surge of violence this year they recorded six thousand civilian deaths here is how terrorists skyrocketed in iraq following the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three. the iraqi prime minister is here in washington he just said his nation is facing quote a war of genocide and that the revolutions in the region have made it worse. what is a power vacuum is created another terrorist organizations were able to exploit its and gaining ground they benefited from the fall of states structures terrorists now

flocked to syria for safe haven and the firth of syria is from a deal between the opposition and the government the closer it is to becoming the failed state where al qaeda and groups similar to al qaeda rule the day so as all these countries iraq syria libya face growing terror washington says they decimated al qaeda leadership and al qaeda is not as dangerous as before as a result of the enormous pressure we've put on the group we've eliminated all of al qaeda senior leadership in afghanistan and pakistan and because the current leaders about leaders of al qaeda core so worried about their personal safety they're far less able to plan attacks but the words don't match his numbers if anything during the years of washington's war on terror terror only grew in washington i'm going to go. far as. the director of the future terrorism project he
3:04 am
says bullets alone won't solve the terror of the world must fight its ideological roots the growth of the hardest production meaning many ideological schools indoctrinating radicalizing and creating a much wider demography of the harvest and then you have another structure that is al qaida or a variety of other jihadist groups and in many countries who are recruiting so the pool is getting larger problem is that over the past few years the administration policy makers in the united states are not acknowledging the fact that behind that in addition to political issues that are diverse around the world there is one common root which is the ideology so if you don't identify the ideology if you don't work with civil society if you don't work with moderates in the arab and muslim world and in other regions as well if you don't have a plan for that in addition to just sending drones and military operations we're
3:05 am
not going to be able to stop recruitment to al qaida and others. are all due in part to a surge in radicalism in africa the number killed globally in terrorist attacks doubled between two thousand and eleven and two thousand and twelve iraq war veteran michael prysner believes the first step to stopping all of this is simply shutting down the drone campaigns. the first thing that would go on a really long way to changing the situation is closing down all of the u.s. military bases that are in over one hundred thirty countries around the world many of them muslim countries with ending the regular drone strikes that take place on these countries and of course kind of a daily terrorism and acted by the united states against other countries through drones you know that there's this term that they use to justify all of this is termed american exceptionalism which of course is an offensive term to many people but it's real meaning is that the exception is that the u.s. considers itself having the right to tax anybody in the world at any time to kill
3:06 am
anybody in the world at any time to torture anybody in the world and any time to arrest anybody in the world at any time that to spy on anyone in the world and that is that their definition of american exceptionalism which is driving this policy. and veteran american filmmaker all of us stone he's the guest in today's breaking the set with abby martin it's where he tells us about washington's military machine and how lawmakers got away and continued to get away with setting up a surveillance empire. we put up the system where we were looking for terrorists right there what two thousand three thousand i don't know it's a small vial of people but people would now have the right to look at the entire haystack for the needle we get was so the result is it's like hitler would hitler god use a lot of it got a lot of his power from the people because he was wailing about terrorists is germany always they talk about terrorists that's just
3:07 am
a first. it's always the first method in george orwell's ninety four it's always about terrorists even in the car thielemann nut cases drove a car of the terrorists communists planted in our schools and our government so who's creates this fear that in american people. our thanks for joining us here on r.t. today the israeli military is refusing to confirm or deny reports that its warplanes have yet again breached syria's sovereignty embalmed of multiple targets there according to u.s. media reports citing a white house official the israeli air force attacked a military base storing a missile arsenal apparently destined for the lebanese group hezbollah the incident happened near syria's port city of latakia and it's not the first time though that israel has been blamed for blatantly ignoring international laws by launching air strikes in the state a similar attacks which the israeli leadership refused to confirm took place in
3:08 am
january may and july this year lawrence freeman from the executive intelligence review explained why tell of we keeps on getting away with it. you do not have the right to it another sovereign nation and israel has done that and if we had a functioning government according to war. in the korean war this would be condemned and israel would be reprimanded and force would behave like a sovereign nation. but everybody knows they did it and that's the way they operate. and should not. and the only reason it is accepted because the president united states obama allows you to occur or why as you could not occur. meanwhile syria has met the first deadline in an ambitious plan to get rid of its toxic arsenal by the middle of next
3:09 am
year a mission of international kept inspectors has said that all declared chemical arms production and mixing facilities have now been destroyed and as aussies policy now reports from the capital damascus it was a very difficult and dangerous task certainly under the circumstances of war. dangerous and dirty that's how the nobel prize committee described the work of chemical weapons inspectors inside syria not to mention a brutally tight deadline october twenty five damascus provides a detailed plan of its chemical weapons stockpiles done october twenty seven foreign inspectors visited all declared sites missed and by today syria finishes destroying all equipment used in the production and mixing of poison gas and nerve agents done yesterday we should eliminate. whatever we can but you know this is a very complicated process complications filled by so called security concerns and
3:10 am
that's the reason why one deadline already has been missed one of the biggest problems the team faces is how to access sites in rebel controlled areas so far the rebels have been unwilling to cooperate foreign inspectors have managed to visit twenty one of twenty three sites and although they haven't verbally blamed the rebels damascus insists it's doing its share until now. those. sites being visited are under government control and we hope those who are controlling the. group still them to implement what they are expected to implement it's the most difficult mission if undertaken by the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons destroying a country's chemical weapons stockpile in the midst of a civil war two women are syria actually stop producing chemical weapons in one thousand nine hundred eight as a possessed alternatives that can be a strategic substitution and are not in conflict with international law but none of
3:11 am
this answers the reason why foreign inspectors are in damascus in the first place a chemical attack on august twenty first in which hundreds of people were killed off two rockets with sarin gas were fired at damascus as suburbs those responsible are still at large sister agnes mariam de la cruz has spent months investigating videos. posted online of children purportedly killed in that attack she's convinced the videos women depleted demand means that you have a buddy. die many days before the event and they've. is a victim of the chemical attack the next deadline in the destruction of syria's chemical weapons program is the middle of next year by then damascus must have destroyed removed its entire stockpile and ambitious timeline in very difficult circumstances. damascus. and the destruction of the chemical equipment means the
3:12 am
country can no longer produce new toxic weapons but it still has to get rid of more than a thousand tons of chemicals that already exist here at all to you we spoke to middle east analyst short of money not a one day she believes the syrian government will actually be greatly relieved when all of its chemical weapons are destroyed there is evidence that rebels have some their hands on some chemical weapons we've certainly seen in iraq and turkey rebels being apprehended with chemical agents components of chemical weapons in their possession. really important point and this is something i heard from a syrian government official earlier this year the syrian government has for some time now viewed chemical weapons as a liability and a burden precisely for these reasons because potentially rebels could get their hands on small amounts of these chemical agents and use them across the border in israel or turkey to then justify a military attack against the syrian government so they have been quite pleased
3:13 am
that the international community has come together to in fact to rid them of these weapons so that excuse no longer exists. thanks for joining us here on r.t. the best line of defense it's a good offer and that is the tactic that could be adopted by edward snowden the whistleblower might get the chance to testify against the n.s.a. and its spying scandal with angela merkel that story just ahead for you. as the story of a search for greener pastures that's. the european financial crisis hits hard the migrants in italy leaving thousands out in the streets without a job and without a roof over their heads. now it's a britain where sometimes being too good at committing crimes can actually secure your future especially if you are a hacker and so after it was revealed in the newly formed a u.k. cyber defense units looking for reinforcements from the ranks of its convicted enemies smith reports. the life and times of

a haka in britain from cruising through cyberspace to banged up in prison to what can for the government as details of the u.k.'s proposed defense. officials admit that considering hiring convicts it's just the you know the implication is right that in black and white that it's ok for governments to have people but if people had governments it's a cry must. convey to depok he paid the price and is now studying computer science soon he'll be looking for a job but he will be looking to the government think it's it's quite. for two. years because other people would still. be state sponsored. i think they should be trying to confuse computers security for everyone trying to help governments to keep breaching the books which presumably was based on
3:15 am
intelligence from m i six and the plan is to get the h.q. the communications agency to help train up the. volume of the revelations that you know. within. the british citizens it doesn't exactly have the best reputation at the moment but maybe the woods national security have become tons about just. given all the. stories you have every year it's quite difficult to buy into just. national security especially when national security seems to be so often infringe on basic civil liberties experts say even the name is a misnomer. it's a cyber war as well just be the defense that will have attack capabilities to. strike on any foreign power perceived as a threat if the future of walls is in cyberspace.

3:18 am
a rally to demand better social housing conditions police used tear gas in response to eggs bottles and smoke bombs being lobbed at them a journalist though he was at the protest he says the people are desperate to be heard and seem to think that violence is the only option what i saw is that there were some people. who came to the demonstration with the helmets. so i think their intention was to start to fight with the police and to have a peaceful protest the police and the situation i read there only was these small bombs but only because they are being. very symbolic. right now. the government isn't really much caring about it because they think they have bigger issues like the government itself. and

a german inquiry is ready to testify in the investigation into the alleged spying on chancellor merkel and this came out there was a blow up met with hans christian strobel a well known german lawmaker on thursday here in moscow just last week merkel personally called obama for explanations after reports suggested her private phone had been tapped officially washington claimed the surveillance was not presently taking place but didn't make any comment if indeed the n.s.a. had been snooping on the german leader before an investigative journalist dave lindorff told us that snowden's possible testimony would put german authorities in a very awkward position. to some extent the german government is complicit in this and so you know to the ex if they were to try to. expose it the wind up exposing their own culpability if people are furious at. miracle now that she was not upset when it was revealed that the n.s.a.
