there will be new so you will be with them or you are against them they talk about freedom and democracy there is no freedom or democracy they just want to barrow the refugees here say they now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in the air strike code until 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 now we have to pay a very heavy price of. 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 are dug around in these symmetries still fresh while nato has already claimed that the operation to protect civilians must go on more if notional r.t. . maybe a leader colonel gadhafi accuses nato of murder after a recent airstrike killed civilians investigative journalist michelle coughlin who was in libya just a few days ago believes the actions of the alliance are only motivated by money. they killed the mall civilians that's the losses from the initials problems they have most of engines the nato bombings so the real i.d.'s not protect civilians the rio de these to achieve the economical strategy called interest off there of the west us in europe i mean. i mean the financial reserves of libya i remind the us is a bankrupt country and also preventing that kind of fear would be assault of china
to do i.m.f. some buying for african development the old idea is to make the public international opinion accept the idea that nato is a couple of the world of the that nato has the right to make walls where they want to revisit the code in the hospitals and we saw victims and indeed the civilian population is attacked that must be very clear it has nothing to do with him in a chair and wall 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 airlie for a halt to the coalition airstrikes are just a regular reports on whether nato has trapped itself in a conflict it can no longer escape. civilian deaths in libya are last making news on western news networks they say has acknowledged that a number of civilians may have been killed in an airstrike last nice little nature
says it regrets the loss of innocent lives and admits the weapons malfunction may have caused civilian deaths and tragically acknowledged one of which of course last night in tripoli and may be to blame for civilian casualties the operation has been going on for three months and according to libyan officials hundreds of civilians held ready 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 media mass media nowadays is not that they're left wing right wing it's just that 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 us to sation in need to his relentless pounding of libya
need do is acting under a u.n. resolution to protect civilians but many believe the alliance is main 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 fully been people to decide the british public don't really understand why we've been taken into these wars and yes indeed while we bombed them now colonel gadhafi is i murderous vicious dictator in the world and libya will be better off without him but it is our business to go in there out of office if the libyans want to have a revolution and get rid of him then good luck to them all others believe the longer the attacks in libya continue the more difficulties for nato and its politike. bakker's the only exit option of nato was to say we would leave when it is good if you would leave it to the free. if going there going to be.
in his own ok for me. to do exists but if not the point is they really do exists achieving nothing would truly be full specially for them than for you could be going to. need his admission of killing civilians in recent days may have made the headlines back home but the expressions of regret have not been felt on the ground in libya unlike the western bombs and missiles which continue to fall killing those lion says it's there to protect in brussels. a time now for a quick look at what's still ahead for you and the program and balor road police crackdown on protesters taking part in an anti-government demonstration it's being called the silence revolution. and travel far in question more a new documentary channel from our t.v. brings the best of russian global audience. russian
aviation aspirants have rolled out technical failure as a possible cause of the fatal 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 a highway on monday night relatives of victims and locals have come to gather to pay their a last respects near the scene to pull one three four exploded 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 has got an education reports the american leaders decision doesn't have a complete support of his military. let's start with numbers there are around one
hundred thousand american troops deployed to afghanistan right now thirty thousand of them were added by president obama two years ago now he says by the end of next year the what he's going to pull out those thirty thousand troops the drawdown will start this year with some ten thousand troops expected to be withdrawn by december i mean analysts say it's not a groundbreaking move from a strategic point of view after all he is pulling 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 way he promised the withdrawals to start this year and he had to deliver the bigger question is what results has to live if you drop so far take a listen we're starting this drawdown from a position of strength. is under more pressure than at any time since nine eleven. together with the pakistanis we have taken more than half of all kinds of leadership and thanks to our intelligence professionals and special forces we killed osama bin laden the only leader that al qaeda has ever known here in the us
the pressure president obama faces with regards to afghanistan mostly has to do with the enormous war spending and the number of casualties among american troops president obama was elected as a war and 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're cautiously talking about progress fragile progress as they put it but various reports on the ground say insurgency is growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by nato strikes doesn't help experts say many of those now fighting against the allied forces in afghanistan are not a car 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 of a poppet leader doesn't get him it doesn't get again him any popularity at home so he has to take a stand here is what he said a few days ago people can no longer tolerate the attention their homes in that one do that going to go it would be foolish to take unilateral action industry got what some find worrying is that these upcoming troop withdrawals the u.s. has actually stepped up airstrikes including growing strikes in afghanistan is thought to be part of this twenty first century intelligent war strategy you know when you have no troops on the ground no. deaths of 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 doesn'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 neda 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 terrorists so many see america's war on terror as a double edged sword when it's fighting and provoking terror at the same time. not everyone believes the u.s. will ever leave afghanistan for good we spoke to afghan activist and former m.p. joy who says that despite the promises a trail of military bases will remain. this on a sponsor. who contended with crimes enough going on in my country
just lawyer from one hand telling publicly to our people and to get people that they will leave afghanistan by two thousand and eleven or two thousand and twelve but from another talking to because you stop accusing the stomping to the us part of the military bases what's going to stop. me from going stone i say no my people use it. for warlords and patient forces i think the people of us i don't do what they agree with my people that democracy never come by our completion democracy never by military invasion democracy never by cluster bomb by white phosphorus by mustard car by bumping our wedding parties. and you watch the full interview with afghan activist mari joy and just about fifteen minutes time here on our team. in time a second bailout for greece is crippled economy will dominate
