welcome says r t it's eight pm thursday night my name's kevin o. him and first this hour belgium may be an international by word for unity with its nato and e.u. headquarters but it faces a messy breakup of its own right now with a reprimand north south divide it's only a bushel explains the split that's tearing the country into could echo throughout europe. some wait till the divorce before planning their next marriage but not well lowlier the southern region of belgium the country's been with delta fictive government for record fourteen months fringe speech in the cells and flemish speaking flanders in the north disagree on pretty much everything many analysts think the most likely outcome will see the country break into as soon as it splits
12:02 pm
with floor this is complete the world will look to hook up with france for richer or poorer but mainly for richer going it alone when your small region is clearly not appealing and while they say political clout is important the main appeal is money. the looniest part of france in everything but name that we have the same language we watch french t.v. not belgian but above all our economy is controlled by french firms with polls suggest that hall for sixty percent of the french want to become one presidential front runner marine le pen last week said she would with the southern half of build them with france president sarkozy's ruling party and the opposition are already in talks to tie the knot we have contacts with other parties with you and he then we have contacted the socialist it has been confirmed to us that's in kate's version would speed up then what would be welcome in france. the biggest party in the
12:03 pm
northern half wants the split to experts say bill jones already divided people don't know any more about the other half of the country the flemish people don't know who are the popular singers or writers today in the french speaking part of vice versa king albert fears bill jim's national day last week was its last he added the crisis threatens not just every belgian but european integration itself and. the e.u. is scared that the worst of belgium was the rest of europe catalonia leaving spain scotland leaving britain were really seen separatist march as an excuse me towns here it turned violent with guns getting called take just one day clash for brussels to become serial that's conflicts or a mass killing not suffered in europe since world war two labors turned on each other as you can slove a broke up and the determination of regional identity is not to be underestimated
12:04 pm
for its unionists say they have the flag and everything else worked out to become france's twenty eighth region all that's left are the details the new bush will see brussels. and later in the program we look at a part of eastern europe where separation brought anything with peace and stability . course they've always thought the session is free products or in other words a service for down of course all still believe themselves to be part of serbia as fresh violence flares up in disputed disputed border between serbia and kosovo we told the balkans experts as a un closed session. now it's the germany's finance ministers not at all happy that one of the key points in the greek rescue decided by e.u. leaders last week he says the eurozone fund didn't agree to blank checks for buying greek bonds and in another development the i.m.f. is warning fronts that it needs more cuts to avoid becoming the next victim of the debt crisis or help us put these two news lines in perspective let's talk to thomas
12:05 pm
t.v. signals from a c. b. merchant banking joining us on the line from copenhagen tonight thanks for being on the program let's talk about france first if we can what might happen if france europe's second biggest powerhouse economy hits the buffers do you think well of course the same way as we've seen other countries in europe call in that case it's the end of the line for the european bailout experiment which should be clear cause that france is not bankrupt fundamentally in any way that's similar to greece but if markets decide to cut from funds then even healthy governments control costs and that i guess is the risk that we're faced with here but it is a big board is going to put it all in is in a bit to try and the problem is even further in france is being told it does need to bring in these cuts to avoid this worst case scenario there's already deep resentment of course among the french to a higher retirement days and talked about last year a lot of trouble over that can sarkozy risk angering the public so close to the election with any more tightening of a belt. well i think there's obviously
12:06 pm
a political risk if he decides to do so but more importantly i don't think it's the right way to go right now those their problems that are being pointed out by the i.m.f. they could potentially be resolved over a period of five or ten years you do not want to go in a weakening economy and the more downside risks for growth right now and i don't think that the case but doing that is so pressing but obviously if bob gates decide this is what they want in order to keep funding the french government then we might come into a situation where sacrifice is necessary after all let's look at other news that i know that submerged today and told me see if we can brief respite for the e.u. last week when it agreed on a greece is the latest rescue but now from the finance minister is anxious that the idea of how going to buy about greek bonds isn't a well what does this tell us about a high level faith in greece being able to pay its debt. well i think there are sixteen or impression that three years down the long down the line some kind of
12:07 pm
restructuring will be necessary regardless of what we're doing right now i don't think the illusion that we can fix that problem is out there the question is how you apply enough time to do this in an orderly fashion and i think it's deeply worrisome that the bigger countries in the euro zone apparently would not have enough faith to put up their money in order to just buy it's worth three years stemming the hemorrhaging of our capital from greece and giving them time to buy some longer term solutions or find some longer term solutions so i guess they're clearly here what the euro zone again is is telling markets they don't even really stand behind their own plans i mean more from the german finance minister whose words carry some weight of course he said the crisis of trust in the euro can't be sorted out within a single summit like we saw last week but can it be repaired at all normal people are asking now. i actually agree that you cannot create a new nation state over a weekend summit if you look to see history countries like the united states or the
12:08 pm
russian federation they were they did not create a nation states in a meeting that lasted a week and so it is something where you need a lot of time. this could be fixed and i think everybody in europe would probably be better off if a broader eurozone is kept together this is politics and the leg of confidence that you can hear from the statement suggests that while the things might come to a point when the politicians are ready if you hold the strings if you pull the lever what would you like to see the eurozone do as a way forward. well i think because these are very important very political decisions you need to cry the necessary time for the borders and the populations of europe on board the only way you can do that is in fact by its ring that blank check that you will be prying whatever it takes to keep french italian and spanish yields from rising in the same way as they did increase if you're not willing to back up with with capital like that then i guess there's no solution in sight. of
12:09 pm
your expert opinion on the program for nestle banking joining us there from copenhagen tonight thank you thank you. u.s. military says it will continue airborne reconnaissance missions near china despite beijing's protests last month after two chinese fighter jets intercepted a huge two spy plane over taiwan which china claims as its territory called helen from the american based foreign policy in focus think tank says the rift is part of competition for energy routes in the region. prey on the united states is the number one user of energy in the world and china is the number two and chinese oriel eighty percent of chinese energy supplies moved by c. that you move through the streets of rome once which is controlled by an american should sleep well immortal malacca straits which controlled by the american seventh fleet chinese are very sensitive to this and they they don't worry about the fact that the united states could sort of put it on the original again this is part of
12:10 pm
a worldwide competition for energy resources between the number one and the number two powers in our energy users in the world and the fact that the united states has pretty much surrounded most of china with pieces that go all the way from central asia to the north pacific that's the context in which this takes place. and a few minutes of the program to store strikes back with that thought out in russia's heat wave right now but the real danger is on the ground it isn't small over and eight bombs could spark a number of choking and smoking some of the reporters there are a. lot with diplomacy between washington and moscow as the u.s. bans travel for russian officials for the billing for lawyers there from jail even though the probe is not yet complete got the files on that. financial crisis for some is an opportunity for others and with money in short supply for

12:13 pm
the last thirty years so many people you. do to me and i do think that is the wrong thing to do is hidden there. the thing and it's not just manufacturing work american i t. companies and innovation jobs are also moving here in droves as well as huge savings on wages many companies say india's fast growing economy and young workforce make it a desirable place to find staff there are amazingly talented people here in that part of the workforce and you know it's a matter of helping other other markets understand that you know there are very talented people here who can do a lot of great work and it's not just about outsourcing and it's growth that these american companies don't anticipate will add and anytime soon within the markets. in the last forty years ago most laws are being asked british military would like

12:15 pm
analyst alexander public should both great says shouldn't be treated as an infringing minority are bad they still regard it as their of. their trying they're trying to enforce some unilateral moves in order to change the reality on the ground to change the reality as it was as it is under un resolution security council resolution twelve forty four also always towards the session is through probably excel in other words the serbs were down in course it was still believe themselves to be part of serbia and they're acting in that capacity now the western states mostly nato states that have recognized course or treating them as a minority on the other hand states that have not recognized of course or independence and not treating serves as a minority but are seeing them as having equal rights as all of the citizens of serbia so we must remember that the key to this situation of course it was really in nato hands to take control militarily the entire province so
12:16 pm
really whatever happens down there is under their control and it's something that they will tolerate or not tolerate. so we must also remember what happened yesterday with the burning of the border checkpoint we still don't know who actually did it these were masked men who really could have been any nationality we don't know whether they were serb albanian or french or even american we just still don't know that a suicide attack on a government compound in southern afghanistan has left at least nineteen dead and over thirty five injured it follows a string of attacks on the killing of president karzai brother and it comes as the u.s. withdraws its forces former cia intelligence officer michael scherer told us to see the violence in afghanistan alone escalate more watching the charade unfold here in afghanistan the afghan army the afghan put national police force are never going to be able to control become tree not just because there have been trained
12:17 pm
sufficiently and also because they're divided tribally when you're gone when they go leaves they'll go back to their tribes and they'll fight each other again so the whole the whole house of cards will come down after the united states and its allies complete their their withdrawal and withdraw in defeat really ultimately what we have the after ten years of effort in afghanistan is a body count that's all we don't have any measure of progress against the enemy the kind of hard story the hard fact is that we went there with one mission which was to destroy the taliban and to destroy al qaeda and quite frankly we haven't killed enough of the enemy and their supporters to make any difference we instead tried to build a western democracy in a country that's conservatively islamic and deeply islamic and so we failed to do that and the situation is going to remain violent and probably. detrimental certainly very detrimental to pakistan as long as we stay there as long
12:18 pm
as the ally and stays in afghanistan. former cia intelligence officers michael sure thought it was their boat earlier and he was indeed one of the masterminds of a raid to kill bin ladin and he shares his experience about fighting international terrorism on our website also talking to r.t. dot com today bolivia's president about fighting against bin freight. train charging us with illegal activities with drug smuggling or terrorism for instance so ultimately destroy is that's their plan and i believe evan rolley as outlined why he feels the threat from the u.s. right now plus. can't think credibly posters appear across moscow with president would benefit the trader's superhero captain america check out the authorities reaction to the comic book make over at r.t. dot com.
