1:02 pm
children other troops claim that they were ordered to do so by their commander and the firing on civilians was an accident now the judges ruled that there was not enough evidence for the call for q should prosecutors wanted twelve years in jail for the suspects this is the first time that polish troops have been caused a war crimes in the afghanistan war and if in fact this is added to the calls for the nato troops to leave afghanistan of course the war here is extremely unpopular throughout the european union already we just saw a president a. cause of afghanistan saying that america was on its last chance the nato troops having killed another fourteen civilians recently really gave. kens no choice but to declare war on the nato troops if they continue to
1:03 pm
kill civilians to kill innocent afghans he said really there was no excuse for the amount of this nato have apologized but the civilian casualties are considering continue to mount they have been hundreds of civilian deaths from the bombing and military experts here really see no sign of the toll fully. bushel reporting there . from the polish group stop the war told me earlier that this case is given a whole new insight into what polish soldiers do in afghanistan and the case of various really important in poland because it is the fairest is really the first case when it is seen that polish troops in afghanistan are not you know building schools and so on and how it is usually seen in media but. to be honest is just that people for an iceberg we know the polish government is doing and. the officers are doing. to say sending troops to afghanistan it's making the object if
1:04 pm
it's ability it's conditions to such a tragic or crime situation will happen we really don't know if those soldiers are guilty or not but which we know now there are other people should be punished for sending troops to afghanistan who are being there as a people from other cultures who have no idea about language about the religion of the people of afghanistan so in the extreme situation it goes through simply you know lack of dignity lack of respect or of any people people koskie from the problem start the war initially very giving his view on his country's mission in afghanistan to a bit earlier. former bosnian serb army chief is set for his first appearance before the hague war crimes tribunal on friday a sixty nine year old will be asked to enter a plea on charges of genocide he's accused of ordering the killing of some eight
1:05 pm
thousand muslim men and boys at srebrenica in one nine hundred ninety five result his country knows that of his found many questioning the legitimacy of the evidence sixteen years on the run six days in serbian court and the rest of his life in the hague. official belgrade was more than ready to extradite former bosnian serb army chief. in a matter of hours but the i.c.t. y. is not as ready to prosecute a war that is accused of ordering the mass murder of muslim men and boys in the villages that are beneath say in one thousand nine hundred five. the hague tribunal does have a lot of evidence regarding the massacre but is all of it valid if you look at the forensic evidence and. you look at very carefully it is not supported at all anything close to the conclusion that eight thousand people were summarily shot for the conclusion of the servants operation.
1:06 pm
in somalia from the five. in any criminal case of this nature the first thing you look at is the forensic evidence and the forensic evidence is the flimsiness part of the case there are questions about the way the evidence has been interpreted for instance with the autopsy reports the i.c.t. why presents three thousand five hundred sixty eight reports as corresponding to three thousand five hundred sixty eight bodies but many researchers who went through the files say most of them are body parts which means a lot less people but even if the hague tribunal didn't support it without gathering further evidence it will still be many months before the trial can begin he always says kind of plan things as they go along i mean it's it's been an improvisation they've changed indictments some people they've written indictments
1:07 pm
on people who've actually been found already exported to the hague meaning first you get arrested and then you get an indictment against so best way the hague works so it won't be a surprise if they adjusted like me in fact but few more times they did it with milosevic they did it with others they've done it chesham so it's just standard procedure for a tribunal in the case of former president slobodan milosevic it took over a year for proceedings to start because milosevic had to familiarize himself with over a million pages of things ailes and time. is precisely what i've come luggage doesn't have. or staying with. you don't need to be an expert to understand what my father is in a very poor condition he can't even read he has to go through thousands of pages to be able to testify in court but he's simply unable to do that he has difficulties with speech too how will he consult with his lawyers it's impossible he's got
1:08 pm
problems with his memory he may remember things that happened long ago the same time he can remember what happened yesterday or the day before yesterday how can a person with these health problems appear in court or are you so the i c t y may well find itself in a tight spot again more and more people are criticizing their lack of objectivity and they have yet to complete a high profile case and that is a worry for belgrade which wants to complete this particular episode to history official belgrade extradited after a lot of in a matter of hours hoping to close this chapter of their history as quickly and painlessly as possible open your guarantee that his trial in the hague will take at least a few years means that for serbia this chapter will remain open for just as long. as r.t. on the serbian capital belgrade. welcomes political analyst me should stop with the tribunals not going to be impartial towards. basically the do america's bidding.
1:09 pm
the principle of all civilized countries all legal laws are will be ques and all those who participate in the legal process must be subject to the same laws as the accused no one is above the law is the statement well here everybody but everybody is above the law other than the accused let's consider for example the one being afraid your television serbia in belgrade with twenty third of april one thousand nine hundred ninety. six think people have died as a result of the bomb being which happened by a us pulling the tribunal never actually indicted anyone over that that's an important situation only those are being trying to work with the us government actually is targeting forward something comes from washington basically and then somebody tries to carry it out later and find an appropriate charge there that has happened on numerous situations already with the tribunal. still ahead of
1:10 pm
the program tonight the gift of a future thousands of russian children diagnosed with cancer given new hope with a new state of the art hospital bill to help try to fight the disease. and nato is extending its operation in libya by another three months the alliance chief says the decisions meant to signals of colonel gadhafi that the coalition's determined to fulfill the u.n. mandate to protect the libyans get more or less than from antiwar activists chris nine a middle of the summer line from london it's not a very good evening thanks be on r.t. as nato has decision to prolong its campaign in libya taken you by surprise. no not at all really i think it shows two things first of all it shows that. he projects so far the intervention so far has been a failure i mean clearly once again the western powers felt that they could just move in very quickly and change a situation with a few bombing raids which they should have learned doesn't work in afghanistan and
1:11 pm
iraq and secondly it shows that. contra contrary to the nineteen twenty three un resolution this is all about regime change it's not really about humanitarian efforts all what they are effectively saying to get afi is we're going to keep bombing you keep killing civilians keep bombing libyan towns and cities until you go well that's their hope so really i mean and i and i felt that from the very word go this this was really all about regime change anyway. none the less is that it's sending a signal to the libyans now with this extension that it's on their side with bombs apparently is it the right signal wanted something to instill democracy. problem is again people should learn from afghanistan and from iraq you cannot introduce democracy by bombing a country it really doesn't work them out because it can only be brought about by the actions of the people in a particular country and in fact what's happened as many of this is i believe that
1:12 pm
this this intervention has actually taken the civil war it's not actually help the movement for democracy. because i think it's entrenched because he from the start was saying that the popular movement. in the in the in the west of the country was. sorry in east of the country was a was a movement that was sponsored by the way and he used that to bolster his position well that has now come to pass is now clearly true that the west is backing one particular side and so that actually serves the purpose of strengthening its support making it harder for people to break away sections of the military and other elements of the government. away from away from good i think so i think what's happened is the the war has been lengthened the war has been deepened and it's actually a good half is in a strong if not stronger position now than he was when the west first got involved
1:13 pm
and i guess chris following your train of thought there you're not going to be surprised by the reports that we've heard this week that u.k. troops were spotted on the frontline with rebels in misrata that's where away from that original u.n. mandate isn't it. well absolutely and big government is making a kind of spurious slightly spurious point that these are these on official troops you know they're they have no connection with. with with the kind of foreign obviously a material world but clearly you know they are they are there they are fighting and that means once again that the perception that this is a western operation to sustain and secure western control over post gadhafi libya will be reinforced crist you kind of going to say that because around the war activists of us ask you know if nato wasn't in libya gadhafi maybe would be waging war against his own people why are you speaking out about. well there's
1:14 pm
a few years waging war against his own people and we did speak out against the atrocities they committed. in the situation when the popular uprising first happened but the problem is we are now in a situation where there is for the third time in a decade a massive western onslaught against a muslim country that changes the whole dynamic of the situation and that means that you know what we're really saying is is there is a move this isn't a humanitarian operation the idea that suddenly the west has been converted towards the side of the arab people is laughable when they are still supporting the bahraini government. the king in saudi arabia doing nothing and they are in fact backing the regime in in yemen and so on and so forth this isn't about humanitarianism this isn't about to not see this is about the west trying to reassert its control. in a situation where they feel as if they're losing it because of the arab spring in the whole region in the middle east and north africa and that reassertion of
1:15 pm
control is is is is being conducted with the utmost brutality i mean we don't know the western reporters and western governments they don't count the number of civilian dead but they must be hundreds and hundreds of civilians three hundred sorties being flown bombing sorties being flown every week they tell themselves that they've destroyed more than they destroyed thousands of targets there must be huge collateral damage this is a brutal onslaught against against a foreign country and really i don't believe it's going to do with democratic change whatsoever it's to do with the real position of western power in the region and that's why we oppose it as you would like to visit christiane and talk to us from london tonight thank you. fourteen million americans are unemployed now and it's a number that's rising relentlessly and with so many people on the breadline economists say forget the war on terror the lack of jobs now is the biggest threat
1:16 pm
facing the world's wealthiest nation when important. there is a golden arches that stretched across the globe from london to brussels to moscow and millions flock to mcdonald's in search of french fries in big macs but what about those in search of a career if i was in dire straits i might go to mcdonald's but the entire time i was there would be looking for something better not to offend because i don't employ he says i would look for other things first that's for sure i don't know but it's yeah. i think it's just the words that you would say about the job. meanwhile just across the atlantic they seem a roma coming but are much greater sense of appreciation for straight work and i was able to go from a real person to restaurant manager. the benefits ongoing benefits of working with people day in and day. it is a secure career in
