if. a major u.s. bank allegedly loses a billion dollar investment by libya putting the financial woes of the american and the libyan people in the same boat. a huge fire which as we know raging for more than exactly blew up and i mean even death row in the central russia has been extinguished leaving over eighty people injured. and the smartphones are not secure for the size of moscow tech fun claims it can retrieve personal data from any device or some.
global news live from moscow this is artsy i'm a real researcher welcome to the program well libya could be another name on the list of alleged victims of the joint us investment bank goldman sachs and bank is currently being investigated by the american government for its part in the two thousand and eight financial crisis and its supposedly lost a one billion dollar investment made by tripoli some three years ago but it's also important i reports from new york the bank is hardly concerned. long before the u.s. led airstrikes against libya's moammar gadhafi the dictator and one of america's most profitable banks were firm financial friends in two thousand and eight according to the wall street journal open sacks offered khadafi the chance of becoming a huge shareholder only after losing ninety eight percent of libya's one point
three billion dollars sovereign wealth fund in just a few months they have lost a staggering percentage i don't know how you'll lose ninety percent or something it was a bet on options on the european banks and energy companies whose stocks plunged shortly thereafter but in any case clearly they saw a gold mine in the one the fund controlled by colonel qadhafi nearly empty goldman pointed out all first to recruit losses according to the journal libya would get five billion dollars worth of goldman shares in return for making a report seven billion dollar investment in the securities firm libya agreed to buy the banks debt with the promise of a lucrative annual six percent return for twenty years gave me knew it was about him who knows. and there they were selling them selling these libyans a piece of junk which was themselves libyan sovereign wealth fund officials are
reportedly accusing goldman of misrepresenting investment deals and making trades without proper authorization but others proudly admit playing fast and loose with gadhafi is money american real estate and reality show tycoon donald trump those that he lied to and deceive the libyan leader in the past i reckon from a piece of land he played we were there for one reason i don't know where jews were at all here after two years and then i looked through the meters away and what we should be doing was that over new jersey we want to use the word strawberry scared of now. now critics say the libyan people stand to get screwed by wall street trump's comments were very interesting in terms of the attitude that american executives and american officials have too as other countries did there to be screwed and he said it publicly and he advocated it as a policy and he did it personally due to frozen assets and financial sanctions
imposed by the u.s. europe and the united nations libya's sovereign wealth fund argued for gotten about unless one of the world's top financial firms is house accountable so americans have been demanding that for years without any success can't get duffey achieve what the american people and the american government can't or won't achieve i don't think so i think that they're going to get away with this you know big billion dollar boondoggle with libya just as they've done it with america goldman sachs is currently being investigated for playing a major role in the two thousand and eight financial crisis a crisis that cost americans millions of their jobs homes and life savings while a military conflict currently divides the u.s. and libya uniting citizens of both countries is the financial game wall street has made at their expense or in upper nile artsy. so meantime
a florida based investment banker bunny goldman says that the bank's operations with libya could actually be part of why don't. when you have two percent of the world's oil supply you become a target the sovereign nation firms have been the primary target of some of the biggest investment banks worldwide but the obama administration has created a criminal investigation it is now getting information our sources tell us they have good evidence and the bankers were told that the materials they were selling in the sovereign nation firms were truly bad assets they knew they were bad assets and they were moving them or their account and putting them on the accounts of libyan norway and iceland and that's a crime. but as the list of u.s. banks troubles gets bigger so does the country that has the possibility of the debt ceiling being raised becomes a more of a reality experts say the move could only mean more economic pain the country would
report in just a few minutes. later helicopters have their first targets in that. russian foreign minister sergei laugh it off as did else the deployment as a step towards a ground operation. we expressed our opinion of at least escalation of the military operation we think what's happening is a shift towards a ground operation this will be very regretfully because the violations of the security council resolution already taking place and more than enough to think about the attitude towards un's decisions. british and french opposite tucked his forces in the port city of rego they were deployed just days after nato extended its intervention for another three months recent weeks have seen intensified allied airstrikes on the libyan army. there are indications that the low can start which will produce a genuine libyan political process if you simply keep dictating things from the
outside and by supporting the rebels by saying that this person has to go all this person has to stay bringing somebody in announcing that some particular individual is legitimate the other is more legitimate then you have to drop the country just go ahead on the dot the country do not go to iraq in libya we don't believe as a i was trying to say that as foreign capitals determine who is going to leave the country and what is happening or going to happen there there has to be a political process so how radia is that there must be a ceasefire as quick as port as possible because it can produce a situation where civilians are not going to suffer any longer and the political or economic told us earlier that nato is stepping up the attacks on libya is more proof that the mission cannot be called right of terri and. and there just thinking . it's a symbol is no they're not. but there's no use for.
it. he said. at the very least. it's not even. it's a. baby and later it's the so you. need to stop the world and say different we'll see if it's occasional that's what we don't know it was one zero on the saving the lives of others i love. you the same way these ladies normally need concessions because the only americans are literally regular there we were on sale in. egypt all. week and socially it was eating everything we mentioned in the beach. now the u.s. congress has a slam president obama launching the operation in libya without its consent but with a stranger i think. we can predict that it's really going to have very little effect
for two rounds you by rude editor of the palestine chronicle books you can check out our website our team dot com for the full interview. you are with r.t. live from moscow now the russian military says a massive i mean it's been raging for over twenty four hours has been extinguished but the number of those injured in the accident continues to rise and currently stands at eighty six now thousands of buildings have been a destroyed almost thirty thousand people forced to leave their homes are pretty one of them is in the region. we're actually at the moment on the edge of the security perimeter that's been set up around this munitions holding facility we've seen helicopters and airplanes dousing the smoldering area around it there are no flames there we can see just now firefighters said that they hunt the situation localized it contained now from what we've seen we've been here this morning that is exactly the case they are
a few areas of the forest around where the storage facility is that are still smoldering but this they are not on fire and have been doused from the sky there are however explosions still going off about three or four an hour now these on to the same type of explosions we saw from the fire that started over twenty four hours ago these are controlled explosions being carried out by special forces bomb disposal experts they've been working round the clock to make sure that any ordinance that was damaged by fire can be safely put out of harm's way and we've been hearing some horrific tales from the villages about the evening when when this spy it took place. where we were right now inside some of us who are still wearing our sleepers and my guns. and i was putting on my jacket when i heard a shell around into the wall plaster began falling off i grew up whatever i couldn't started running. when we arrived we saw huge flames it's a massive explosions. now the pictures that we've seen from this this blaze when it
was at its height the shells exploding all around some horrific scenes of course many people were injured some of those have been released from hospital some are still receiving treatment but this village is home to a lot of elderly people when this fire started they they sought shelter in their basement and had to be rescued. then mainly elders who hid in basements and were evacuated by rescue teams we didn't soak over and move them to hospitals in evacuation centers no one understood what was going on so everybody took cover. this is the could just last week there was a fire in cheery and a similar type of facility to this one where i am now president dmitri medvedev has been scathing in his comments suggesting that to fly is in two weeks is too many to be allowed to think he saw a train was beginning to appear though he promised a full investigation into how this was allowed to happen it is promised that heads
will roll if you finds out this any people in power were flaunting the safety procedures present medvedev has said this if any senior military personnel are found to be negligent they will be removed from their positions. not his reporting right there you can follow the situation in russia as republic. as well as watch a spectacular videos of the fire online just log on to our website r t dot com and check out the artsy free video section and check out a unique footage of the fire taken by unmanned drones the state of the our planes are used by the emergency services to monitor the situation you can view and even download the high definition video at free video. dot com. couldn't take three. arrangement free is free. free. free
volunteer to mediocre for your media project a free video game to r.t. dot com. with r.t. live from the heart of the russian capital now has a month before he has to enter a plea to charges of genocide during his first appearance at the hague tribunal the former bosnian serb general called the accusations monstrous and not just the former army chief is being charged with eleven counts of war crimes including his part in the massacre of eight thousand muslim. i have to live it she was arrested. after sixteen years in hiding is handing over to the court was seen as a key condition before serbia could join the e.u. but still there are many steps to be taken before membership some experts say it's not always this complicated to join the groups. those conditions don't need to be met if the e.u. likes you. remain everything for very obvious strategic reasons and didn't meet any
particular conditions at all in so doing now the real reason that serbia is outside the e.u. club as it were is that the serbian succession is province of course or has not been resolved that's a situation that still needs to be resolved and the e.u. prefers serbia to negotiate regarding that situation while on its knees which is a position that is the public is very familiar with those original figures eight thousand came out care about from these are bigger which is a missed side they were prepared in advance. thousands of people were hidden soldiers and drafted back into the. list forces without their families even being informed so there is certainly a great deal exaggeration in the figure the tribunal is so sure that justify its existence it was set up by madeleine albright's some point an accusing finger at the serbs and to hide the existence of the joint criminal conspiracy to destroy the state the sort of forms the state of yugoslavia over half of the half of the adult
population of serbia died to form their own male population so we decided to form yugoslavia which was destroyed by the west and the hague tribunal is there's a plane an entirely different picture it's the one tunnel most of europe where people are held for years without trial waiting for trial when they're when their verdict is known in advance in fact is even worse than the guantanamo bay of europe because at least there in the guantanamo bay the judges know what the rules are at the hague tribunal is kangaroo court the rules are worked up as they go along and always at the expense of the serbs. and robert lyons the deputy editor of the online magazine spike lee says that what's going on in the hague now is a show trial with the outcome already set in stone i don't think there's anything. fair about this trial at all about the whole process. or what's what's happening it is that the kind of the outcome is kind of been it's been set already it's a bit of a show trial i think. as
a result i think it's very much about bolstering the west's position and making the west look like it's for free it's a friend or of justice and the largest has already been certain the bad guys in this i'm not. allowed to choose are wonderful human being but the crimes on all sides are not war and to pick out one side has been worse than the other. it was a much murkier there were opportunists nationalists politicians on all sides and some fairly brutal people behind them as well. and the contributors to the r.t. for them are saying that their pay tribunals should be dissolved in their view it has no legal grounds to exist now you can go to our website to have your say on whether general or practical malathi it will get a fair trial at the u.n. war crimes court r.t. dot com that's the address where you can express your opinion. but a huge source of personal data in the palm of your hand that's what

without a life from moscow now a movie's ratings agency has warned that the u.s. it may downgrade downgrade rather its credit rating if washington doesn't make progress on dealing with us debt there's increased speculation the u.s. will have to raise its debt ceiling which was already reached in mid may but economist peter schiff believes that will only make a bad situation worse. but we have to do is stop borrowing all this money you mentioned earlier that one of the problems is that we haven't raised the debt ceiling that's one of the only good things out there that debt ceiling is still there unfortunately they're going to raise it we're going to go deeper into debt which means bigger problems that this is not you know the economists are describing this is a soft patch it's not it's quicksand and economists who think this is a soft patch these are the same people who want to do it in seven so the u.s. economy had never been in better shape they didn't see this crisis coming right
never understood the problems of the u.s. economy and they still don't understand them they think that government stimulus made the problems better it did it allowed the problems to get worse now the number of people finding a new job in america is at its lowest level in eighteen months and our very own in new york president has held on to the streets this time finding out if it's worth paying for education when there are no jobs at the end of the line. with today's tough job market is it worth spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for college education this week let's talk about that how much does college cost in poland college for free. any this paid for it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars so probably it's a problem. i get to khan and young people from all over the world are
bought off on it and it needs to stop now i'm not going to say that the government needs to pay for it but i think young people need to wake up and look around them and say you know it's not an accident that bill gates was so self taught maybe if kids took two or three years before they went to school and had a little life experience and then had some purpose to their study might make more sense. what is the we were hundreds of thousands of dollars even at that point i don't think so i live on one year of accounting i took undergraduate. millions of dollars on that one cause which i only paid two hundred dollars for i own a business i hire the best people i can get if you're not if you have a college if you don't have a college education don't even come to my office and apply to what you where did you go to college i went to college in texas and you use what you learned every day absolutely do you think it depends on what field here and possibly but let me tell you this without an education you just have a whole lot tougher time in life but we're also told that we all have to go
otherwise we won't succeed. faster than the serps went out and i chose not to go to u.t. as we call it a time around if i set needs a guy who's known to be way out of range and if you go to the top schools thing and he the rich people can afford it why is that it do you think that would set us back over the long run in terms of what we can produce really is. i think if you look around your economy and the rich are getting rich and the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is falling away people are seeing real estate in the new economy i think the american people are suffering the bottom line is that most employers still think a college education is important and ultimately it's their opinion right or wrong that met. your without you live from moscow let's check out some other headlines from around
