some. official data. it was the bloodiest month in iraq since two thousand and eight and while the country's prime minister america. gets the u.s. drug treatment as a strike goes the leader of the pakistani taliban who apparently wants to negotiate . that is almost like a symbolic overwatch with populists it makes your paranoid as a new n.s.a. complex is besieged by protesters critics brand new senate bill designed. as a way to watch me legalize the data collection of millions of americans.
quite a saturday morning here in moscow this is with me rule re sushi thanks very much for joining us today. has become the bloodiest month in iraq now in five years the data coming from the country's interior defense and health ministry now putting the death toll at nine hundred sixty four people almost ninety percent of them being civilians and according to the government the number hasn't been this high since april two thousand and eight when more than a thousand people were killed in the numbers don't quite correspond with the findings of the u.n. which puts july as the bloodiest this year but whatever the figures turn out to be it's clear that the country though is facing an increasing security problem no surprise then that the iraqi prime minister is in washington for help. the story we know that the iraqi leadership has made a request for u.s. assistance in the fight against terror we don't know they'd. details of that
request the leaders wouldn't elaborate on that the iraqi prime minister called al qaida a scourge for iraq and the middle east the iraqi prime minister has arrived in washington in the month that turned out to be the deadliest in the last five years for those who are following the news it's becoming such a repetitive phrase the deadliest month in iraq for this many years said we we hear it all the time the fact is that following the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three terrorism has skyrocketed in iraq the six carrion war that broke out as a result of the invasion has created a great environment for terrorists the iraqi prime minister says it's getting worse because he says as a result of the so-called arab revolutions there is a power vacuum in the region which extremist forces take advantage of his specifically spoke about syria and the situation there of course even though iraq's nouri al maliki knows what the u.s. invasion has led to in his country he can't be too critical of washington because after all in a way it's thanks to the u.s. that he's now in power and the political analyst she ones allowed says the level of
ballance has recently spiked across the entire middle east region. the prime minister of iraq when he made that call i think what he means by it is providing intelligence arms and support to because he fears that the spillover from syria is affecting the level of violence in iraq and. the level of violence in iraq as a whole has increased because of that but the reality is the politics of iraq is broken and the violence is is a result of that is not only because iraqi army's weak is just because the. iraqi politics as a whole is dysfunctional and hasn't worked for the last ten years or so. i don't think what's going on in iraq is going to be a risk to the global sort of risk but obviously is going to be rich to oil markets in the around the world is going to be a risk to the region as the middle east iran and what's going on in syria i mean this could turn sort of this ball from syria and then to iraq and then it can you
never know what is going to stop. pakistani taliban has vowed to avenge the death of its leader has been killed in a u.s. drone strike and a pakistani officials say the assassination is now peace talks with the militants let's cross now to islamabad and get the latest from local journalist. joining us here on the program good morning to you from moscow what is the situation right now all security measures being stepped up and perhaps i should ask you what sort of response are expected from the time about now. good morning yes we're hearing right now and overnight the security has gone and there is a lot of security in major cities of pakistan in the heart. because of course so far the statements from the government have been very grim and. leaders have been saying that this is being down to sabotage the peace talks between pakistan's
government and the taliban as far as the united states is concerned the state department has said that it is internal poncing and they will not be seeing any statements so far we haven't heard any details from down as to what is the next step what is what is the government the pakistan government right now is again at the crux as to decide whether they should continue with the peace talks are whether they should just focus on keeping the country safe because right now the security has become an issue. here minister of pakistan he has stated that only david for yesterday was talking about peace talks and they were almost underway right now yes today's event of another drone strike that. country is again. to what should be the next step what to expect from the taliban
so far today is a few. key moments. there have been talks as to the new leader for the. most probably it would be. safe on he is also always a leader of the south waziristan and he would take over as the general leader of. and as far as the government by stars government is concerned the strike strongly condemned this attack and they are expecting to. continue with the peace start but so far it seems. so far it's at a dead end and it's difficult to say right now what would be the next step because there would be a bloody retaliation from the taleban and the security is heightened in the sound and everyone is just in anticipation as to what would be the next move all right
journalist joining us live here on our t.v. from islamabad thank you very much for. you were signed up pakistani officials recently praised the way the bilateral relations have been developing but this latest drone strike will likely tarnish that trend and lead to just more killing that's according to peace activist nor to me. it's an absolute defiance of. on behalf of the u.s. government of what no law should have had explicitly stated was necessary for a pox on to take the matter into its own hands and this just seems to be a slap on the face to say your peace talks really do not mean anything to us and it seems to be the u.s. stating that it wants absolutely nothing to do with the pakistani government's stance on this i think the negotiations are going to be put to a halt and we're going to see severe repercussions the last time that the negotiations were on the table there was another drone strike and the pakistani taliban the t.t.p. said they were not going to negotiate any more we're already seeing calls from the
from the police on the ground in pakistan tightening up security measures because there probably will end up being some bombs on the ground against innocent pakistani civilians that are caught in the crossfire in the retaliation so we see a regression in terms of in terms of where we could be heading or lover most goats are taking a bite out of a problem europe's on a high alert over a recent rabies outbreak in france all amid fears it could spill over the border. we're not protecting ourselves received the flood and we've put ourselves at risk coming up here and i'll tell you we take a close look into how the u.k. so authorities are handling disease prevention with birds arguing they are taking their eyes off the ball. and on the program the u.s. senate committee has passed a bill to rein in the n.s.a. following the revelations of the leaker edward snowden critics say the measure
would actually do quite the opposite. senator feinstein's bill is an effort to codified the n.s.a.'s bulk collection of americans telephone records which is in fact on shaky legal footing right now and there's another program that's being legalized in this bill which has not gotten as much attention as is it really should which is the back door searches of international communications and so what has been happening is that the n.s.a. is allowed under the files and then its act to go collect huge amounts of communications of people who are suspected to be foreigners overseas without any individual warrant because they are foreigners overseas what ends up happening is the n.s.a. scoops a lot of communications between people overseas and americans and also ends up scooping a lot of purely domestic communications of americans into that as well these are all communications americans communications that the n.s.a. would need an individualized order court order or warrant to look at under ordinary
circumstances and yet another sign of the ever growing reach of the national security agency is the brand new utah data center which is called the i have a crowd of persistent protesters who have taken over a part of the mogul highway to demonstrate their outrage at the surveillance practices oxys marina portnoy has the story. known for its desert wind. and picturesque mountains utah has long been home to the nation's largest population of mormons today it's also home to america's soon to be biggest spy complex i put it inside of the middle of an army base so you care about be protesting the army to protest the n.s.a. . damn garfield learned his lesson on independence day when police prohibited more than a hundred restore the fourth activists from protesting in front of the n.s.a.'s one point five billion dollar data center. shortly thereafter the group thought of
a way to claim a two mile long stake right next to the n.s.a. they keep on trying to kick us out for being here why don't we just adopt a highway we can come in we can clean up in the coming weeks a big sign will be placed right here that says restore the fourth you tom and for each day that employees report to work at the data center they will pass by this sign reminded of the public distrust of the n.s.a. and its ever expanding surveillance programs r t four members will be required to clean the highway at least three times a year but many activists like lorraine a potter plan on being outside the data center much more often armed with an anti n.s.a. picket sign they believe that it is their place. to take in harvest all of our information the fourth amendment to the us constitution guarantees the right to be secure from unreasonable search and seizure. r t four was born into
a nationwide grassroots movement after whistleblower edward snowden revealed how the n.s.a. spies on its own citizens as well as foreigners world leaders and even the vatican we're never going to be able to reverse this if we don't speak up if we don't say something if we don't get people aware of what's being done so what's being done inside the utah data center according to reports the surveillance complex will be filled with servers routers and computer intelligence experts working to intercept capture and analyze vast quantities of the world's communication. or other after buildings back there the secrets inside the data center are heavily protected by fences the national guard and countless warning signs that overlooks the whole valley. kind of is almost like a symbolic overwatch of the populace that makes your paranoid. r.t.
you talk. there are some that are taking measures into their own hands in a bid to beat the n.s.a. by creating an innovative new spy proof platform of phillip zimmermann the president and co-founder of silent circle explains how his company aims to coby e-mail surveillance through the encryption of data. we're trying to restore the privacy that we feel that has been lost by pervasive surveillance email is intercepted by intelligence agencies all around the world and we've discovered through these snowden revelations that. our own government is spying on its own citizens so it's turned all americans into foreigners as if we were. you know intelligence targets we can't make everything surveillance proof but what we can do is try to reduce the amount of exposure of e-mail metadata that's the data that says what the man who it's from who we date and time and these days the method
data and the mail header is is really important for being able to surveil a society and see who's talking to who. in the meantime the controversy continues over the people who allowed the revelations to be revealed to the world it's come to light the reason the partner of journalist glenn greenwald was held at heathrow airport in the summer was because the british authorities claim that he was involved in terrorism and espionage the statement was disclosed during a court hearing earlier miranda filed a legal action against the british government seeking the return of his possessions on a review of the legality of his detention among the things congress created the material supplied by edward snowden which the authorities said could endanger the lives of people if released and greenwald lambasted the claims in an e-mail to reuters he said the government was quote absolutely and explicitly equating terrorism with
a journalist in that little number now we'd like to know what you think about the ongoing n.s.a. scandal you can log on to our website r.t. dot com and participate right now in our latest poll today we are asking you given the stream of n.s.a. spy revelations since june what impact will the further leaks have and here are the numbers on odyssey so far though the majority believing politicians would just make more noises about it respecting privacy but they'll do nothing to rein in the government snooping almost a quarter say they'll lead to a rise in social resistance to n.s.a. practices such as the recent stop watching us march that took place in washington d.c. a thirteen percent feeling nothing will happen at all with people getting used to the exposé zone there are no more surprises left in store though a minority thinking that a sincere discussion of surveillance practices will take place and steps will be taken to ensure that privacy is prioritized well that's nice you can have your say online right now at odyssey dot com. all right well the n.s.a.
spying scandal it's already costing america's telecom giants a very pretty penny across the atlantic expansion plans of the country's leading provider and now up in the air over its direct involvement in eavesdropping operation. more informational not a click away right now and. also the chinese confusion between switzerland and sweden the country's consulates of come up with a rather funny solution to explain which is which the web site has the details for you right now. what it's about. today morning here and this is. back in a moment. with the. technology innovation. developments around russia.
t live from moscow thanks for joining us today ukraine's going up to sign a partnership deal with the european union at the end of november it would guarantee the former soviet republic free trade access to the blocs markets but as the country's a car industry ready to take up this task it could be a big one. has the story. entering the association agreement with the e.u. is being sold to the public as a step forward and while indeed the country's farmers might enjoy better export deals with a projected four hundred million euros annual profit the machinery bosses are not so happy the country's factories might simply not be able to afford modernizing standards that would cost almost a staggering one hundred thirty billion euros and that would repeat the fate of the industrial giants who have already been caught in that trap hungary's bus factory it was the leader in public bus production throughout nineteen seventies europe producing more than fourteen thousand buses
a year in two thousand and seven it shut down having failed to compete on the european market it's now reopened only to export small shipments of buses to latin american countries and repair all their models in the one nine hundred seventy s. poland's lightweight delivery buses were exported to over one hundred countries all over the world but in two thousand newsome orders and f. a c. factories both vanished from the face of the earth after being purchased by dell and g.m. respectively lot to be as rough buses were well known in the year in the soviet union those were probably the most widespread public transport vehicles on the country's roads but in the one nine hundred ninety s. the company failed to meet standards and lost the eastern market as well riga was so keen on your integration that it blocked roughs last ditch attempt to save itself through a merger with a russian gas company in one thousand nine hundred the car factory was officially declared bankrupt there are more examples of such failures in central and eastern europe all united by one issue failure to survive in the european market as things stand it's hard to imagine which industrial enterprises in ukraine would be able to
avoid the same fate. begin with a shooting at the los angeles international airport. where a twenty three year old man stormed into a crowded opening fire with a rifle killing one and wounding six of the incidents in a huge down pete actually a part of the world's busiest airport were evacuated over several hundred domestic disrupted by the shooter was overpowered remains in custody with or to say that he well he was pretty well loaded with ammunition as well as anti-government materials those details right now the updates of. a powerful explosion of a chinese fireworks factory has killed eleven of its chloe's and injured seventeen and the blast reduced the building to rubble blew out windows in nearby houses most of the victims were said to be women assembling fuses for firecrackers and the cause of the blast not yet clear chinese factories are pretty well known for the
poor work conditions. thousands of muslim brotherhood supporters of rallied in egypt in a nationwide protest ahead of the trial of the toppled president mohamed morsi clashes between police and protesters broke out in cairo and alexandria where police arrested dozens of demonstrators the trial begins on monday with morsi and other key muslim brotherhood members facing charges of inciting violence. and more than one hundred firefighters are battled a major blaze at a scrap yard in the east of london and the sites believed to contain house gas cylinders it started just hours before firefighters were due to walk out in a strike of a salaries and changes to pension conditions. francaise issued a rabies alert after a kitten died of the disease rabies thought to have been eliminated from the country in two thousand and one can be fatal to humans if not treated as warning has raised concerns across europe forcing health officials to use elaborate ways to prevent further outbreaks but as aussies now reports vets in the u.k.
claim the government's actually underestimating the overall threat. nowadays it's free and his dog can travel to the u.k. . friendly animal you meet. imagine rabies in britain back when this public information video was made westminster's fear of rabies was so high that any animal coming into the country had to enjoy six months in quarantine first rabies is a killer we must keep rabies out but the rules were relaxed last year when britain was forced to join the european union's pet travel scheme. it's really like the razor says these dogs have come a lot from brazil them bob way vietnam in thailand they all need to be quarantined upon entry to the u.k. but pets coming in from europe and some other countries are exempt all they need is a pet possible and
a microchip. since the scheme started there has been seven hundred fifty one cases of rabies in animals in romania and three hundred eighty five in poland the latest case of the disease was in holland there was no longer the requirement for a blood test on a six month wait which means that the doc can be vaccination be within the ukraine three weeks which bears no resemblance to the integration period easy's actually those who work with animals say that angry at the government's failure to challenge the e.u. directive and safeguard the u.k. and saudi. and everything europe seems to say we seem to have to we're not protecting ourselves we seem to side in the slot sights and sounds we've put ourselves at risk this pictures owners take her in an out of the u.k. on a regular basis this is what her e.u. pet possible looks like but campaign to say that mess so easy to forge the number of dogs being smuggled into the u.k. illegally has increased by four hundred percent since the rules were relaxed.
that dog can be brought into the country go into a house mix in a park with other dogs if that thought was a carrier they mixed up this process you know so after runnable then you've got it out right travel. it cools absolute devastation the department for environment through denver left as says the risk of a dog with rabies entering the u.k. is still extremely low but animal charities disagree several have already said that they're stocking up on rabies vaccines in order to protect the. r.t. us and it's good to have you with us here and i'll tell you on this saturday though the british banking system is going down the drain that's according to mike's kaiser this program's coming your way in just a moment. but in a day's work for this woman she opens up a manhole cover and scoops out this much slower because she can delighted by what
she finds what others might view as revolting she sees as a pet nuns and she works in the streets at the southern chinese city of shenzhen a foot soldier in china's so-called customer oil industry as you see she was pulling the gutter oil straight out of the sewer and then processing and giant vats of toxins and chemicals in order to create the gutter oil there's an analogy here between converting the sewer garbage that slop in to reprocess tidbits available as a combustible or yes on the street with the slump in the financial system so we take credit they take collateral that's been abused and has been sold down and resold hundreds of times and they put it on the balance sheet of the bank of england and the bank of england exchanges fresh slop me in the form of guilt which is then the collateral upon which the housing bubble in london is based and if you were to examine the balance sheet of the bank of england you would find
a process of pork slop and gutter slop and oil. it all kinds of dog bar bit. you know phil and whatever it is you know it's time to kind of you know get into a little mandarin there. to stay with us for the kaiser report a bit later in the day here on the finale breaking this sad you're watching on c.n.n. . the office of civil rights in the city of seattle washington has told city employees that certain terms may not be used in official emails and discussions according to
google fox news these terms would be brown bag and citizen ninety nine percent of americans when they hear the expression brown bag think of taking a nice healthy lunch you know in a brown paper bag to work with themselves but in a politically correct insanity land these words are an obvious reminder of the days when a person's skin color was compared to a brown paper bag to determine race well if any were even remotely linked to an incident of racism needs to be banned then we've got to get rid of the word blanket because they give the native americans disease till blankets to kill them i and they block their land with beads so we've got to get rid of that word to remember the separate drinking fountains and segregated buses based on race in america yes so we can't say those words anymore either or we might just possibly remember something bad which could lead to the ultimate horror of the modern western world unpleasant thoughts we see a lot of western countries the term citizen becoming offensive because it makes resident foreigners legal or illegal feel like second class people well compared to actual citizens legally you kind of are if you're offended that you are not treated
as a citizen of seattle why not assimilate become a citizen of the united states. join the team but that's just my opinion. of the. of the the. o. and up so i began to and this is breaking the set so since senator dianne feinstein had a change of heart this week which went from being a cheerleader for the n.s.a. to calling for a top to bottom review of the agency in the wake of the spying on allies leak and just yesterday feinstein put forth a bill that will lead to the reform the spy agency's surveillance practices that then i read the fine print the bill basically leaves the bulk metadata collection untouched and codified as the practice is already put in place well so they need
