if you're watching r t coming to you live from the russian capital welcome to the program and now it's a war top story for the first time ever a so you spacecraft has failed to on the international space station leaving the crew stuck in orbit two russian cosmonauts and a naso astronaut were due to return to earth when an alarm signal technical problems. brings us the latest. the crew is safe but it was originally decided that say you spacecraft would undocked from the international space station at three thirty am g.m.t. but due to technical difficulties with the automatic lock that connects the two together so you spacecraft failed to do so right now engineers are working to fix it originally it was decided that the undocking would be dispelled by three hours now at the time was extended to twenty four hours currently there are six people in the international space station among them there are two cosmonauts
9:02 am
a russian cosmonauts including a captain looks on that score itself and engineer. and enough turn up from nasa tracy called about now the mission spent nearly six months and they are assess and apart from maintaining the space station their duties included unloading progress space crafts as well as some scientific experiments right now of the mission is that into the international space station and they're all safe she's doing. an alarm went off aboard the spacecraft saying that the airlock isn't properly secured and the vehicle isn't isolated from the vacuum of space after a thorough inspection and it turned out this was a false alarm we could have proceeded with the undocking and landing today but we decided to do it tomorrow just to be sure there is nothing wrong with either the station or the landing module. now in case of emergency in case the spacecraft
9:03 am
fails to undock again there's always a back up module that they can he's. elite anti terror kill teams run by america's intelligence agency have now taken the u.s. led war beyond afghanistan now those are claims in a new book called obama's wars by veteran journalist bob woodward reveals that a secret army of some of three thousand afghan fighters sent to haunt al qaeda and the taliban have now infiltrated pakistan well i'm now joined by our from the think tank project for pakistan in the twenty first century thank you for joining us now what do you make of these claims that the u.s. has been secretly carrying out occasional commando raids into pakistani territory. i'll just take you back ten months back to the coast the attack on the station in the khost province right on the border with pakistan if you recall the suicide bomber who carried out the attack was actually an asset of the
9:04 am
jordanian intelligence agency and it was the jordanian intelligence agency that was actually handling its assets and sending him inside pakistan to penetrate and do you know various assignments now that was a very early indication for the pakistanis that as a matter of fact there are incursions taking place inside pakistan and that the the war on terror in the tribal belt the border region of pakistan is not limited to aerial attacks cia led drone attacks but as a matter of fact there is a ground activity a concerted ground activity and that there is there are incursions taking place not just by cia the cia is using various other tools as well including intelligence agencies from other countries in that case of course in the coast attack it was the jordanian intelligence agency and there are others by the way are doing this so now of course we have this revelation know where there is this secret mercenary army
9:05 am
that is carrying out attacks inside that box in the tribal belt i will just. mention here that over the past three years the pakistani authorities have arrested a large number of people of gun citizens in the tribal belt of pakistan who were not able to explain what they were doing there who were not ordinary refugees by the way as you know most of the refugees the of gone citizens in sight box on carry special refugee cards that really pinpoint them to exactly which refugee camps they belong to but in the rest of the cases of those arrests these people were arrested who were of course alone who sometimes carried. weapons equipment ammunition communication equipment and of course so this thing has been going on for some time and of course it would be unfair to say that this activity has been going on without the knowledge of at least some parts of the pakistani political or
9:06 am
military establishment at some level there is a certain level of coordination this would this would be a shocker of course for the pakistani public opinion but i'm not sure this would be really such a big shock to the pakistani military establishment oh i will if we recall the u.s. also used the tactics of training and funding local proxy forces in afghanistan in the one nine hundred eighty s. the soviet mujahideen now washington then lost control over those forces and this led to afghanistan civil war and the rise of the taliban now could we see a similar scenario where a new threat arises in the region. absolutely there is no question no doubt about this we already have confirmed reports of how military equipment weapons provided by the u.s. military to the two. gun mercenary forces and of course the of gone national army have already found their way to the insurgents into the black market so we have
9:07 am
this leakage going on of course and it is not too much to expect that a certain point in the future when the u.s. engagement in afghanistan would of course would draw down that we will see this kind of situation or scenario emerging there's no doubt about this but there's another very important point that we need to mention here is that the united states continues to rely on warlords in afghanistan when when i heard about the mercenary force of three thousand well trained of guns i still there's one part of the story that is still missing and that is where these three thousand of gone volunteers for this mercenary army came from and i have no doubt about the answer to this question and that is they came and they were recommended by some of the warlords of course as you know there is a there's a problem of loyalty and enough to understand you cannot recruit people without knowing exactly where they're coming from so most of this three thousand force must have come recommended from some of the warlords and these warlords are really
9:08 am
milking the u.s. government and the u.s. military they're making a lot of money and of course we all know the story of what happened in toto bora back in november and in december two thousand and one when some of bin laden actually escaped from total vote of thanks actually to the very allies of the u.s. military the of gone warlords who some of them according to reports took money and let many almost one thousand al qaeda fighters really escape so you really these are really shifting loyalties and these three thousand fighters must have come from somewhere and they must have loyalty is to some warlords inside afghanistan and this confirms actually the basis of your question that we will have problems about these militias and these mercenaries getting out of control at some point in the future ok well we know that one of the u.s. run paramilitary units was involved in killing ten police officials in afghanistan now when these things happen ultimately is that the u.s. or afghan authorities who answer for the actions of these units. i think there's no doubt if you go back to these reports in these incidents the of gun at least the of
9:09 am
gone public opinion pins the blame squarely mainly on the coalition forces and of course the u.s. military we all know of course the state of affairs of the of going government to the government of president hamid karzai i think the of guns and we have gone public opinion and of course the way the media has reacted in of got us down it's very clear that the blame is squarely placed on the shoulders of the quotient forces and of course the u.s. military all right thank you very much for your insight that was. the think project for pakistan in the twenty first century. now middle east peace cutting a nuclear weapons and the un so make over should have been the highlights of thursday's general assembly session but the ukrainian president again stole the show and that's the spite sending peace in the audience marching for the exits r.t.s. and us to see it sure can i explains why didn't god got people's blood boiling both inside and outside the u.n. headquarters. considering how hard the international community especially in the
