in the. stuck in the middle with intensified nato bombardments claiming civilian lives and alleged atrocities committed by rebel forces some libyans are feel betrayed after what initially started as a nation wide after. the u.s. trades a boots for bombs in afghanistan obama announces the withdrawal of over thirty thousand troops while deadly drone strikes are stepped up it's upping the fears of more and more civilian casualties. and of bringing in the best of russia and its heart and soul to a global audience twenty four hours a day sees a brand new documentary channel goes live with the help of the president.
worldwide news live from moscow this is artsy well throughout the course of the four month long revolution against colonel gadhafi regime libyans have found themselves surrounded by threats nato forces have killed hundreds of civilians during that bombardments that's according to government claims and rebels have been accused of committing atrocities against their own people. explains. this family hasn't had a walk like this one for months previous keep to 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 in the garci you call them 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 cave has been long and hard for the real and the family but i remember that it could never have predicted i had to hide for some time from them as they've been searching for me from them we knew there was a bus coming from benghazi to near zero the mass of the gravels for their purposes no return about us with our faces covering and everybody was against gadhafi on it we told them that we were also against him and a lot of saying we kept silent until we went to egypt and from there by agency and we were sent here. rather look as sorry as 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. taken before from or from. killing him in front of i.c.u.
and his body on the world that was about the doctor says people from the national transitional council were behind it this is the rebels official political body set up after the revolution in libya started in the mid february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of libya there is no i've got or green you want then you will be in your. you must be with you i get this. about freedom democracy there is no freedom or democracy they just want to kill all the refugees here say they now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. of these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in the air strike he called in to leave and government officials a bomb landed on a private compound and flattened killing eighteen 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 anytime soon and who dug around in these symmetries still fresh while nato has already claimed a ration to protect civilians must go on with clashes containing in benghazi and nato intensifying its bombardment of tripoli both eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to say and people are dying on both sides of the frontline many on the ground fear that when the democracy the west talks about will finally come here there must be enough people left to experience it grief notional r.t.
reporting from western libya criminals and the barbarians that's how colonel gadhafi called nato states following a recent strike that killed civilians the alliance has said that it regrets the bets but investigative journalist michel colum who only returned from the water on country just a few days ago told us here at odds he that innocent lives mean nothing to the coalition that's only in libya for financial gain. they are skilled mall civilians that's the losses from the initials problems their fears most invasions the nato bombings so the real id is not protect civilians the rio de east to achieve the economical strategy called the interest off there of the west us in europe i mean. i mean the financial reserves of libya i remind that the us is a bankrupt country and also all preventing that caffie would be a sort of turn of used to the i.m.f.
some buying for african development your idea is to make the public international opinion accept the idea that neutral is a copy of the world or that that mantra was the right to make wars where they want to revisit the people in hospitals and we saw victims and you did this indian population is attacked that must be very clear it has nothing to do with him in a chair and walked all the nato campaign in libya is losing the support of its allies after the coalition admitted killing civilians i think a car in its own bottom and it's only has called for an immediate halt to the u.s. strikes while the general public across so many states beginning to question the conflict as they learn more about the truth or in a close call has their story. civilian deaths in libya are at last making news on western news networks they say has acknowledged that a number of civilians moving children and strike last night to nato says it regrets the loss of innocent lives and admits the weapons now function may have caused
civilian deaths in tripoli they don't acknowledge that one of its airstrikes 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 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 the media are mass media nowadays is. left wing writing 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 in libya it's only n.h. remember itself has already lost all faith in the operation in fact rome has gone as far as to call for a suspension of all military action and to allow even to libya france and britain
have however dismissed the calls for a station in need to his relentless pounding of libya nato 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 leaders 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 think i can intervene as was and yes in the war we bomb them now colonel gadhafi is i murderous vicious dictator in the world and libya will be better off without him but it is it our business to go in there and balmy mouth 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 taxil even continue the more difficulties for nato and its political backers the only exit option of nato was to say we will leave when we're going to get if you will even if political defeat is skilled or if clinical or free to leave the
problem in his own ok for me to do with an option to raise it but it's not the point is they were there briggs it's a result. actually doing nothing which would be full nato and specially for london and for police it would be great to get visas through need his admission of killing civilians in recent days and may have made the headlines back home at the expressions of regrets not being felt on the ground in libya on like it was two bombs and missiles which continue to fall killing those airline says it's there to protect in brussels it is our team. and if you want your say on the situation in libya just go to our website about stocking dot com you can take part in our most recent poll but today we're asking why you think the leading campaign is failing to succeed so far the most popular view is that libyans support gadhafi and for not betraying him also online. the pilots of
a large passenger jet to prevent a major accident with another plane at new york's j.f.k. airport check out the gripping radio recordings are from the crew and you can find that on our nuclear. power ten minutes past the hour here in moscow on barack obama is rounding up support for his decision to withdraw more than thirty thousand troops from afghanistan by the end of next year france says it could also pull all of its
forces out by the same period but nearly seventy thousand american troops will remain i mean warnings from u.s. commanders that progress against the taliban is fragile and reversible there's also concern that less troops will not mean less collateral damage as counterparts. this thought was numbers there 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 right to pull out those thirty thousand clips the drawdown will start this year with some hand thousand troops expected to be withdrawn by december and analysts say it's not a groundbreaking move from a 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 meet the promise that would call school starts his year and he had to believe or the bigger question is what results has he made it so far pick 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 your intelligence professionals and special forces we killed osama bin laden the only leader that al qaeda and there were no here in the u.s. the pressure president obama faces with regards to afghanistan mostly has to do with the end war most war spending and the number of casualties among american troops president obama was elected as a war and but ended up waging more wars and spending more of taxpayers billions on who's in 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 cautiously talking about progress fragile progress as they put it put various reports on the ground say insurgency is growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by rights doesn't help save many of those now
fighting against the allied forces in afghanistan are not to cry that they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as invaders after one of the recent strike 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 as a pocket leader doesn't get him and 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 people can no longer reach that can actually be. unilateral action industry got word from find worrying is that i mean these upcoming troop withdrawals the u.s. has actually stepped up air strikes 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 just iraq home so we becomes possible to wage a war without having to face all these accountability issues so many afghans are worried that less troops those unnecessary bombs and their it's a common thing in being the us media for example when they talk about war losses they just need a 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 the growing insurgency in afghanistan is the failure to factor we 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 americans war on terror as a double edged sword when it's fighting and provoking care at the same time he's going to write that coming up later this hour here on our. talk to
a human rights champion. joya she claims that u.s. led occupation of our country has thrown the afghan people from the frying pan into the fire. they removed the taliban but brought in power to put a copy of the taliban as they do by this situation getting those ten million subplots going by presence of concern for thousands troops in afghanistan they step up from injustice and security and joblessness quality and now afghanistan is the second most corrupt country and of course more than sixty two million dollars prize is due received from the so-called international community under the name of the construction of of course running schools our phones radios etc my the most not to smile when peter parker called these warlords who aren't even family at home because they had thought corruption to start from the palace house to the small offices and millions of pounds gone now to live below to live like two dollars
