you're watching r.c. coming to you live from moscow i'm marina joshie welcome to the program a growing number of civilian casualties in libya raises serious misgivings about nato intervention even among supporters of the campaign but it's not only nato bombs that pose a threat to b.b.'s the rebels stand accused of committing atrocities against their own people and often has a story. this family hasn't had a walk wasn't peaceful like this one for months they've escaped through the libyan rebel stronghold of benghazi to hide in this refugee camp in the west of the country after a life in their native town became a nightmare. it's not safe there anymore it's become dangerous and it's not only because of explosions and gunshots one day people from the government and then you call the rebels we call them terrorists came to me and told me we have to arrest your daughter because we know that she supports gadhafi. these kids has been long
and hard or they were in the family well i remember that it could not have it it was i had to hide for some time from them as they've been searching for me and then we knew there was a bus coming from benghazi to nazir the bus with the rebels for their purposes we took about bus with our faces covered and everybody was against gadhafi on it we told them that we were also against him and a lot of soon we kept silent until we went to egypt and from there via tennessee and we were sent here. the son was brother look there's a surgeon has also fled the city he says they've made three attempts on his life but he only finally left when he saw a killing. to kill from from from you killing him in front of your own good the world because the doctor says people from the national transitional council were behind it this is the rebels official political body that are part of the revolution in libya started on the meter february its members are recognized by
many countries throughout the world as the your legitimate representatives of libya the view it is. then you will be in you so you will not be. there you are again it's. about freedom and democracy there is not freedom or democracy there's just all. the refugees here see the now finally feel safe but it's not. that's safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in one thousand airstrike in code and even government officials a bomb landed on the private compound and flattened they would kill in fifteen people including three kids we have been calling for peace and negotiation for months and no one wants to listen to us and now we have to pay a very heavy price so if. casualties civilian casualties and also military
casualties i think the time has come for the world to understand that this conflict has to come to an end immediately which is very unlikely to happen any time soon when you dug around in these cemeteries still fresh while nato has already claimed that the operation to protect civilians must go on griffin otieno r t what's in libya. maybe a leader curl could articulate as nato of murder after a recent airstrike killed civilians investigative journalist michelle cog who was in libya just a few days ago believes the actions of the alliance are only motivated by money. mall civilians that's the losses from the initials problems their fears most civilians the nato bombings so the real i.d.'s not protect civilians to indeed he's to achieve the economical strategical interest off there of the west us
in europe i mean. i mean the financial reserves of libya remind us see is a bankrupt country and also preventing that caffie would be a sort of can do i.m.f. some buy in for african development the old idea is to make the public international opinion accept the idea that nato is the cup of the world over that that nato has the right to make wars where they want to revisit the people in hospitals and we saw victims in the civilian population is a fact that must be very clear it has nothing to do with him in a chair and war with nato bombs falling out of people and aims to protect in libya the campaign is losing its initial allies there have been some calls from air for a halt to the coalition airstrikes i just read english records on whether nato has trapped itself in a conflict it can no longer escape. civilian deaths and leave class making
news on western news networks they say has acknowledged that a number of civilians may have been killed in an airstrike last night still nato says it regrets the loss of innocent lives and the weapons now function may have cause civilian deaths and they were acknowledged one of which of course last night in tripoli and maybe the blame for it should go in casualties the operation has been going on for three months and according to libyan officials hundreds of civilians have really been killed by nato bombs so why has it taken so long for the major t.v. networks and newspapers to report on the carnage because the big problem with our media our mass media nowadays is not that they're left wing right wing it's just so they go along with whomever is in power and the whole idea of critical reporting is gone and it's not just media noticing that something is going wrong with the involvement in libya it's only a nato member has already lost faith in the operation in facts wrong has called for
an end to all military activity and to allow aid in france and britain have however dismissed the calls for the station in need to is relentless pounding of libya and they do is acting under a u.n. resolution to protect civilians but many believe the alliances mean aim has always been to oust colonel gadhafi some europeans who titian's from countries back in the campaign say that's not the job for nato but food even people to decide the british public don't really understand why we've been taken in cities was and yes in the while we bomb them now colonel gadhafi is a murderous vicious dictator in the world and libya will be better off without him but it is our business to go in there and out of office if the libyans want to have a revolution and get rid of him then good luck to them others believe the longer the attacks only been continue the more difficulties for nato and it's put it. bakker's the only exit option of words to say we will leave when they get it he
would be if given the freak is. if critical if he believed it but will at least own ok for me to do with an option to two exits but it's not going to use. briggs it's a resume achieving nothing would truly be full and specially for wimbledon footballers it would be pretty disastrous need his admission of killing civilians in recent days and may have made the headlines back home but the expressions of regret have not been felt on the ground in libya unlike it was two bombs and missiles which continue to fall killing those the alliance says it's there to protect in brussels it is r t a time now for a quick look at what's still ahead for you in the program and beller road police crackdown on protesters taking part in an anti-government demonstration it's being called the silent revolution. and travel far in question more
a new documentary channel from artsy brings the best of russian global audience. russian aviation aspirants have rolled out technical failure as a possible cause of a failed passenger jet crash in the country's northwest they are now decoding information from the black box flight recorders to discover what caused the plane to hit the highway on monday night relatives of victims and locals have come together to pay their last respects near the scene to pull one three forks quotas killing many of the passengers on board eight survivors were rushed to hospital with severe injuries to whom a ten year old boy later died bringing the death toll to forty five. the u.s. has vowed to change its mission in afghanistan from a role of combat to one of support president obama has confirmed his decision to pull out a third of ground troops currently deployed in the country by next summer but as
guidance you can reports the american leaders decision doesn't have a complete support of his military. and that's not what is numbers there are around one hundred thousand american troops deployed to afghanistan right now thirty thousand of them were every part of president obama two years ago now he says by the end of next year the question of those thirty thousand troops the drawdown will start this year with some pent thousand troops expected to be withdrawn by december many analysts say it's not a groundbreaking move from the strategic point of view after all he is filling out what he added at the beginning of his presidency but ahead of presidential elections coming up next year it might be a face saving rate he promised they would call school starts this year and you actually believe or the bigger question is what results has reached the clock so far take a listen we're starting this drawdown from a position of strength i'll tell you that is under more pressure than at any time since nine eleven. together with the pakistanis we have taken out more than half of
all kind of his leadership and thanks to your intelligence professionals and special forces we killed osama bin laden the only leader that al qaeda had ever known here in the you asked of pressure president obama faces with regards to of ghana's that mostly has to do with the enormous war spending and the number of casualties among american troops president obama was elected as a war end but ended up waging more wars and spending more of taxpayers billions on inconclusive battles overseas that's what a lot of americans are frustrated about what doesn't get enough spotlight here it is actually the results on the ground if you listen to american military officials they are constantly talking about progress fragile progress is they put it very sort of ports on the ground say insurgency is growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by nail strikes doesn't help experts say many of those now fighting against the allied forces in afghanistan are not all cry that they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as invaders after
one of the recent strikes that killed a significant number of civilians including children even the u.s. backed afghan president karzai had to make a harsh face saving statement warning nato that if they continue killing civilians the whole of the afghan population will treat them as occupiers we have to understand that the image of karzai is a puppet leader doesn't get him it doesn't get gain him any popularity at home so he has to take a stand here is what he said a few days ago he can no longer tolerate a challenge. in that. unilateral action industry gone what some find worrying is that i mean these upcoming trip with draws the u.s. has actually stepped up air strikes including growing strikes in afghanistan it's got to be part of this twenty first century intelligent war strategy you know when you have no troops on the ground no. so if your soldiers to justify at home so it
becomes possible to wage a war without having to face all these accountability issues so many afghans are worried that less troops those don't necessarily mean less bombs on their homes it's a common thing in the us media for example when they talk about moral losses they just give nato a loss it's very rarely do they measure the number of afghan civilians killed and that number is so many times higher experts say apart from civilians killed another thing that contributes to growing insurgency in afghanistan is the failure to effectively deal with the drug issue since the invasion in two thousand and one drug production there has increased enormously and it's known that some of that vast drug trade income goes to carrots so many see americans war on terror as a double edged sword when it's fighting and provoking terror at the same time. now everyone believes the u.s. will ever leave again a stand for good we spoke to afghan activist and former m.p. who says that despite the promises trails military bases will remain.
honest politician who continued to climb served in afghanistan and occupied my country just lawyer from one hand telling publicly to our people and to give people that they will leave afghanistan by the middle of two thousand and eleven or two thousand and twelve but from another talking because it's not the solution the stopping. the us one of the only two basis points to. leave afghanistan i see no way to use. an occupation force as i think the people of us i don't have one very clear with my people that democracy never come by our completion democracy never by military integration democracy never by cluster bombs by white phosphorous by muscle car by bomb bring our wedding parties.
