a prison to what could for the government britain looks to reinforce its new cyber defense force with convicted hackers but not all the cyber criminals are keen to sign up. live from our headquarters in moscow you're watching archie with me and he says now i good to have you with us our top story this hour iraq's prime minister is in the u.s. asking for help to fight the terror attacks that are ripping his country apart on a daily basis. and we want an international war a global war against terror if the situation in iraq is not treated properly it will be disastrous for the whole world what we are saying is that the international community is responsible as well. while these men in washington
10:02 am
a series of bombings have rocked his home country at least twenty three lives were claimed by violence in various regions in iraq all this adds to a global wave of attacks which could make two thousand and thirteen the deadliest year for terrorism in history beating even twenty twelve's death toll of fifteen thousand and as are going to each to cam reports the most active terror groups are all aligned with al-qaeda even twelve years after the u.s. launched a war against it. terrorist attacks have more thing since two thousand and one when the u.s. began its war on terror the number of attacks some 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
10:03 am
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. was a power vacuum was created another terrorist organizations were able to exploit its and gaining ground they benefited from the fall of state 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 have eliminated all of
10:04 am
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 the numbers if anything during the years of washington's war on terror terror only grew in washington i'm going to. now africa is seeing a surge of radicalism spoke to iraq war veteran michael prysner about the issue and he believes the first step to stopping all of this is shutting down the drone campaigns. the first thing that would go on a really long way to changing this 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 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
10:05 am
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 attack anybody in the world at any time to kill anybody in the world at any time to torture anybody in the world at any time to arrest anybody in the world at any time that it to spy on anyone in the world at any time but that is that their definition of american exceptionalism which is driving this. doctor while the director of the future of terrorism project says brute force won't be enough to get rid of terrorism it's ideological roots should be pulled out first the growth of those you hardest production meaning that many ideological schools indoctrinating radicalizing and creating a much wider demography of the hottest and then you have another structure that is
10:06 am
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 knowledge of 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 not going to be able to stop recruitment to al qaida and others. so with the war on terror rumbling on today peter the vel and his guys discuss america's use of drones to fight militants in pakistan and the quantum the consequences for the people of the country crosstalk is coming up later today. but really she was something that
10:07 am
we can talk about and we should talk about it we should change it really has to be from the american people who are starting to get educated about this issue and starting to organize and protest you know we demand others live up to a standard of accountability that we don't hold up to ourselves. countering terrorism is still the main argument american politicians used to justify spying programs but some u.s. authorities are more or less admitting it's gone too far at least according to the latest comments made by america's secretary of state john kerry said these activities were taking place without his or the president's knowledge happening on automatic pilot because the technology and the ability are there but the n.s.a. chief question diplomats attempts to plead ignorance following comments from a former u.s. ambassador that surveillance on foreign leaders has little to do with national security keith alexander suggested it's the policy makers who decide who to monitor
10:08 am
including ambassadors now a rift is growing in washington's political establishment as the buck is passed over who is responsible for the spying which is cause a loss of trust at home and among allies and that breach of trust in germany could see edward snowden come to berlin to testify over the u.s. tapping of chancellor angela merkel's phone in a letter to german authorities the former n.s.a. contractor expressed hope the growing support for what he did will prompt washington to a bed of what he called harmful behavior. has the details member of german parliament christians met with that noted in moscow on thursday have they have discussed this notice possible just twenty in front of the german parliament and the former n.s.a. contractor has actually issued an entire letter address it to the german chancellor angela merkel in which he said that he would be more than willing to come and testify because he knows a lot about the n.s.a. exigencies no just in europe but in the entire world. would be happy just to talk about that but he can only do that have berlin guarantees him
10:09 am
a safe passage meaning that text will not be extradited to the united states on top of that edward snowden of course added that he would be more than willing to testify not of berlin but in washington unfortunately that is impossible. the moment regarding edward snowden's life in russia where he has been since june well according to his own russian lawyer that. snowden has gotten a job with one of russia's top internet companies we don't know we don't know exactly whether that is true and what company that is but russian journalists have speculated that it could be the country's largest social media web site of course that it would be doing internet security for them at least these are the reports that we're getting. we also had a chance to speak to edward snowden's lawyer in russia trail my he told us the whistleblower would not necessarily have to travel to germany to testify.
10:10 am
because as we know he. moves to a different country it is then he loses this. with. any question and snowden on behalf of germany. through treaties signed between germany and russia. doesn't need to travel there to give some evidence to. the threat level is still very high. almost a daily basis we hear. from the u.s. governments that he's still on the wanted list. israel launched another strike inside syria according to us media reports citing an official inside the white house the target was a military base in the west of the country which stored a miss a missile arsenal apparently destined for hezbollah in lebanon and the israeli military has refused to confirm or deny that the attack near the port city of
10:11 am
latakia even took place but this is not the first time the country has been accused of breaching syria's sovereignty and bombing targets there have been three similar attacks this year in january may and july the israeli leadership refused to confirm as well analysts say this will continue to happen as long as a power for our eye has israel's back you do not have the right to it another sovereign nation and is rio has done that and if we had a functioning government according to war and we went function according to war this would be condemned and israel would be reprimanded in force would behave like a sovereign nation. it won't confirm but everybody knows they did it and that's the way they operate. go. and should not accept it and the only reason it is accepted is because the president united states
10:12 am
obama allows you to occur otherwise you could not occur. syria may now have destroyed all of its equipment to use to produce the i should say to produce toxic weapons but the job is just beginning this is the first time a nation has gone through a process of chemical disarmament during a time of war as archie's polis leader reports from damascus that makes the task far from straightforward. 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 shall eliminate. whatever wicca but
10:13 am
you know this is a very complicated the process complications fueled by so-called security concerns and 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 verbal 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. groups to leave 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 surely women are syria actually stop producing chemical weapons in one
10:14 am
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 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 the next deadline in the destruction of syria's chemical weapons program is the middle of next year by then damascus must have destroyed or removed its entire stockpile and ambitious timeline in very difficult circumstances policy r.t. damascus. coming up after a break we report on how cyber criminals in the u.k. are getting a second chance if they change sides stay with us. well

com for the whole story. protests in rome over alley housing policy is left six people injured most of them police officers security forces used tear gas to disperse the provocative crowd demanding the government control accommodation costs and stop massive fictions marial corrado who witnessed the walkout says clashes were inevitable. what i saw is that there were some people. who came to the demonstration with the helmets and so i think that intention was really to start a fight with the police and not to have a peaceful protest well i think the police and the situation correctly they're only hostile to was to throw the smoke bombs but only because they had been attacked by the protesters and i think what happened is very symbolic of what is happening right now in the nation the government isn't really much caring about the proudest

10:25 am
there was institutionalized abuse throughout the whole over here and also with the coroner ruled out that neglect had led to the deaths of five elderly people there were instances of wrong doses of medicine being given to residents or calls the need more than generally just a low standard of care being given but none of these would have come to light if not for the decision of one of their staff to blow the whistle of what was going on inside it was a very tough decision i didn't come home and do it lightly it is the wrong thing to do and they all ring the place. but and i just thought i couldn't going to work every day. you know we were trying time and time again there was a problem and but in the nobody wanted to do anything lisa martin was working as a business administrator should manager at all give you she lifted the lid of what was going on in there and her actually led to an inquest and eventual closure of the home she was later made redundant that's something she didn't expect and she's
