after two pm here in moscow you with our team i'm rory soon show welcome to the program but the growing number of civilian casualties in libya raises serious misgivings about nato intervention and even among supporters of the campaign it is not only nato bombs that pose a threat to libyans the rebels stand accused of committing atrocities against their own people parties murther national has the story. this family hasn't had the war quiet and peaceful like this one for months they've escaped from 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 in told me we have to arrest your daughter because we know that she supports khadafi. these keep has been long and hard for they were in their family but i remember. 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 gravels for their purposes we took that bus with our faces covered and everybody was against gadhafi on it we told them that we were also against him and they let us assume we kept silent until we went to egypt and from there via tennessee and we were sent here. summers brother dr sabri 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 and hearing. from from from your killing him in front of your own good. the doctor says people from the

national transitional council were behind it this is the rebels official political body that are after the revolution in libya started and february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the your legitimate representatives of libya but there is. there will be new so you will be. well you are going to. look at that freedom democracy there is no off with them or democracy there is just war. the refugees here say the now finally feel safe but it's not. that say from the side of the frontline either. of these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in one thousand airstrike accordant and even government officials and bar landed on a private compound and flattened it killing fifteen people including three kids we have been calling for peace and negotiation for months and no one wants to listen
6:04 am
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 then you dug around in these cemeteries still fresh while nato has already claimed that the operation to protect civilians must go on the reef and optional r t what's the libya what i mean time the libyan leader colonel gadhafi is accusing a nato of murder after a recent strike killed civilians investigative journalist in michelle collins who was in libya just a few days ago believes that the actions of the alliance are only motivated by that of money. they are skilled at mall civilians that the losses from the initials problems there are few small civilians the little bombings so the real id is not
6:05 am
protect civilians to rio de these to achieve the economical strategical interest off their of the rest of us in europe i mean that oil i mean the financial reserves of libya are i remind that the us is a blind corrupt country and also preventing that kind of fear would be a sort of paternity used to the 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 copy of the world or that that nato has the right to make wars where they want to revisit the people in hospitals and we saw victims this in million population is a fact that must be very clear it has nothing to do with immunity or in war. well with and a host of bombs falling on the people of aims to protect in libya the campaign is losing its initial allies some calls from italy for
6:06 am
a halt to the coalition air strikes are to. report on whether nato is trapped itself in a conflict it cannot no longer a scam. 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 air strike last night says it regrets the loss of innocent lives and admits the weapons now function they have called civilian deaths and there were guards at one of its areas of course last night in tripoli and maybe to blame for civilian casualties the operation has been going on for three months and according to libyan officials hundreds of civilians how 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 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 they're all idea of critical reporting
6:07 am
and it's gone and it's not just media noticing that something is going wrong in libya it's only in a three member itself has already lost all three in the operation in fact rome has gone as far as to call for a suspension of all military action and to a lot adrian to libya france and britain have however dismissed the calls for suspicion in nature was relentless pounding of libya need to 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 european politicians 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 in the while we probably 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
6:08 am
a revolution and get rid of him then good luck to them others believe the longer the attacks in libya continue. the more difficulties for nato and its political backers the only exit option of nato was to say we will leave when printed if you will leave it if you live to defeat it skewed if going there could actually lead to . ok it will be looked into doing it but if not the point is if you exudes a result achieving nothing which would be for little in specially for longer than for boris it would be pretty great these are three meters admission of killing civilians in recent days and they 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 in missiles which continue to fall killing those the alliance says it's there to protect in brussels. and r.t.

6:10 am
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 if that is a guy nature can reports the american leaders decision doesn't have the complete support of his military. that's how it was numbers there are around one hundred thousand american troops deployed in 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 one percent of pullout goals thirty thousand troops the drawdown will start this year with some thousand troops expected to be withdrawn by december and analysts say it's not a groundbreaking rule 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 me he promised withdrawals to start this year and he had to deliver the bigger question is what results has its leadership brought so far take
6:11 am
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 these we have taken more than half of all cards 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 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 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 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 very sort of course on the ground say is serve in c. is growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by nato strikes
6:12 am
doesn't help experts say many of those now fighting against the ally 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 of a pop it doesn't get him a 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 b.p. can no longer. in that. community action industry don't find worrying is that i mean these upcoming troop withdrawals the u.s. has actually stepped up airstrikes including growing strikes in afghanistan is
6:13 am
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 those and necessarily mean less volumes on their homes it's a common thing in the us media for example when they talk about war losses they just give nato losses very rarely do they mention 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 a growing insurgency in afghanistan is the failure to effectively deal with the groggy 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 in provoking terror at the same time. he's
6:14 am

6:16 am
it's not going to just the thing reese is going to affect all of your. banks all over europe are very much exposed to greece and banks in europe are very highly leveraged for example when lehman brothers collapsed they were leveraged thirty one to one which was absolutely horrible now german banks actually hold a lot of greek debt and there are leveraged thirty two to one at this point so greece goes down is going to ripple effects across the entire world and there are experts all throughout the financial industry that are warning that this could set off another two thousand and eight style crisis. and there you can find more views and personal experiences over events in greece of course on our website r.t. dot com but here's what else you'll find online right now the european commission puts an end to lushington this move to access personal data on passengers flying between europe and the u.s. saying the proposed anti terror plan is illegal. and
