fishel political body set up after the revolution in libya starts in the mid february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of libya there is no other being you then you there will be in you. you must be with them where you are against them they talk about freedom and democracy there is no freedom or democracy they just want to power the refugees here say they now finally feel safe and it's not that safe from the sound of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in nato airstrike he called in to leave and government officials a bomb landed on the private compound and flattened the road killing fifty 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
8:02 am
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 the new dog ground in this symmetry is still fresh while nato has already claimed that the operation to protect civilians must go on with clashes containing and benghazi and nato intensifying its bombardment of tripoli but is 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 won't be enough people left to experience it were originally r.t. reporting from western libya. criminals and barbarians that's how colonel gadhafi called nato states following a recent strike that killed civilians the alliance has said that it regrets the
8:03 am
deaths but investigative journalist michelle collins who only returned from the war torn country just a few days ago told us here at r.t. that innocent lives mean nothing to the coalition that's only in libya for financial gains they killed mall civilians that the losses from the initials problems there feels more civilians than lives or bombings so the real idea is not protect civilians the rio de to achieve the economical strategy called interest off there of the west us in europe i mean the oil i mean the financial reserves of libya i remind that the us is a bankrupt country and also all preventing that gaddafi would be a sort of turner used to do i.m.f. some buying for african development your idea is to make the public international opinion accept the idea that nato is a couple of the world of that that nato has the right to make wars where they want
8:04 am
to revisit the people in hospitals 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 war while the nato campaign in libya is losing the support of its allies after the coalition admitted that killing civilians did occur in its bottom and it only has called for an immediate halt to the air strikes while the general public across so many states are getting to question the conflict as they learn more about the truth parties are going to go has the story. civilian deaths in libya are 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 a weapons malfunction may have caused civilian deaths and knowledge one of which of course last night in tripoli and may be to blame for civilian casualties the
8:05 am
operation has been going on for three months and according to libyan officials hundreds of civilians have 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 media nowadays. it's just they go along with whomever is in power and the whole idea of critical reporting. and it's not just the 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 the sanction of all military action and to allow aid in to libya france and britain have however dismissed the calls for 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
8:06 am
always been to oust colonel gadhafi some leaders from countries back in the campaign say that's not the job for nato. people to decide the british public don't really understand why we've been taken into these wars and yes indeed while we bombing 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 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 libya continue the move. and its political backers the only exit. was to say we will leave when you're going to get if you will even if the feet. if they're going to be. ok for. an option. but if not the point is they will do exists resort. which will
8:07 am
be. it will be. nature's admission of killing civilians in recent days and may have made the headlines. of expressions of regret over not being on the ground in libya unlike the western bombs and missiles which continue to. those. it's there to protect in brussels. the. situation in libya. today we're asking why you think. so far. we're trying to. pilots of.

the crew on our new trial. now i ten minutes past the hour here in moscow 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 amid warnings from u.s. commanders that progress against the taliban is fragile and reversible there's also
8:09 am
concern that less troops will not mean less collateral damage as gun h.d. counterpoints let's note 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. those thirty thousand troops the drawdown will start this year with some ten thousand troops expected to be withdrawn by december many 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 place year and he had to deliver the bigger question is what results has he brought 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 out more than half of all kinds of
8:10 am
leadership and thanks to our intelligence professionals and special forces we killed osama bin laden the only leader that al qaeda had ever known here in the u.s. 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 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 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 high that they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as
8:11 am
invaders after one of the recent strikes that killed a significant number of civilians including children even the u.s. backed afghan president karzai has 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 leader doesn't get him and 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 there. in that one do that again. unilateral action industry 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. so if your soldiers to justify at home so it becomes possible to wage
8:12 am
a war without having to face all these accountability issues so many afghans are worried that less troops doesn't necessarily mean less bombs in their view it's a common thing in the us media for example when they talk about war losses they just keep 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 the growing insurgency in afghanistan is the feeling or to fact that 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 america's war on terror as a double edged sword when it's fighting and provoking terror at the same time he's going to write that coming up later this hour here on our. talk to a human rights champion and that of a joy she claims that u.s. led occupation of our country has thrown the afghan people from the frying pan into
