websites galleries section. and not so great britain the u.k. singled out as europe's worst place to live and you quality of life find out why brits have it so bad at r.t. dot com. residents of the libyan capital tripoli have taken to the streets to protest the presence of heavily armed revolutionary fighters bands of young rebels brandishing weapons flooded the city during the capital's fall battling audience meanwhile thousands of civilians have been in the coastal city of syria. by fighting between anti and pro get out the groups have the shelling and tank fires been heard on the eastern and western france and nato planes were seen flying overhead aid agencies
2:12 am
are ringing the alarm bell saying about the town is plunging into humanitarian chaos with supplies of water power and food drastically low red cross official in tripoli says the internally displaced people or i.d.p.'s are in a desperate situation. the situation inserts we have heard the cons of i.d.p.'s. and it through city being and a lot of difficulties with the we do what supplies with with the access to food and access to medical supplies and medical health services. we have not been able to have the guarantees from all the sides all the parties to the conflict so we have no idea of what's going on right now in the city of sirte unfortunately what we do know is that there are a lot of i.d.p.'s coming out people are fleeing from the city of sirte passing
2:13 am
through that are bridge and many of these i do p.'s have choosing to remain around as closely as possible to their home town they are living in difficult conditions there are a lot of children and women also pregnant women who have difficult access to medical care so the situation is dire we are very concerned especially about their health situation right now and for procrit out his supporters the outlook seems graham robert perry from online investigative magazine consortia news says those of back to colonel have no chance in the new libya because no one will protect them. but seems that the goal now is to simply wipe out what's left of it are used for sense and to bring the country under the control of the former rebels who are now recognized as the official government of libya in other words the people the still the civilians around to be on the side of gadhafi are not going to
2:14 am
be protected and they're going to be punished how far they go with that it's unclear or maybe efforts to negotiate some final surrender but clearly there's a great deal of suffering going on in these civilians are not being protected there is evidence even going back to the very beginning that the eastern part of libya was a hotbed of islamic radicalism some of these people have been connected to hyder one of the leaders who was killed recently a tier was a libyan and he came from this general area and now we know that one of the leaders of the rebel forces that took tripoli was also considered very close to al qaeda and was indeed detained by the united states for some time before he was allowed to go free so it appears that the people with the guns on the underside of the libyan rebels are now the government who are people who have this very mixed background and it's not clear how that also sorts out when you get down to the point of once
2:15 am
the country under the control of this forest which side of this force will will be predominant. the u.s. military operation in libya still hasn't brought peace to the region the spied this being its primary goal this as america's ten year presence in afghanistan still struggles to and the country's turmoil. it's probably another. war that probably is not a winner. the other saw going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others going. r.t. asked people in new york whether they think the decade of fighting was worth their results. but easily the ship remains unfazed by the festering debt crisis in greece maintaining that greece should not cannot and will not default their message however is falling on increasingly deaf ears as a leading economist investors and academics say it's inevitable weeks meanwhile are mobilizing for a new mass rallies as government imposed
2:16 am
a scary begins to break the back of the country's economy salaries pensions and jobs are at freefall while taps and so are all the efforts to satisfy e.u. demands in return for yet more debt in the form of bailouts and according to william dart both and am a p for the u.k. to have a party that is obsession with the euro can only end in disaster. for the greek before a concern here is to the single currency means higher taxes lower government expenditure and cuts in the son of the living but also for and also even even for a country like germany and france specifically a country like germany and here is the single currency means massive transfer payments paid to countries in southern europe and what's happening is that the germans are no longer putting up with it we shouldn't be where we are no this is because of the fanaticism of this european elite and we should look very carefully
2:17 am
what they have to say in the future these are all guilty men and they are discredited and what is very worrying is that as my as my father used to say. to me when i was a young man he said if you make a financial guarantee the nature of fire financial guarantees is that they get cooled and there is a limit to how much even a country like germany can produce because a country like france is actually much much less and there will be a long term question marks over the credit credit worthiness of france and germany if the multiple trillions of your is which are required are actually paid out and called. and was greeks up in arms about their government sponsored predicament the u.s. is also witnessing a growing protest movement of its own in the nation's financial hub after a modest start two weeks ago the demonstration named occupy wall street has rapidly grown with sixteen hundred people reportedly tans today you say they are protesting against the tremendous influence and misdeeds of corporations and billionaires

a lot of those moves to the farmers are committing suicide due to the influence of the other from ors who committed suicide rama locksmiths husband is one of many who succumbed to drought and debt and took his own life some of the driest seasons in decades and an increase in pesticides and fertilizers have rendered their land bare for the grieving families left behind the future is graeme but how should i carry on with my life nothing is good for me and my children and there is no one to help us how do you are better the struggle someone needs to help us. while the government has a tentative deal with the high number of farmer suicides i compensating two thousand dollars to affected families many families say they haven't received any money and even go through have say it's not enough studies show that during the ninety's farmers were able to make around sixty dollars per acre of land every year
2:21 am
of today just about forty dollars for almost four acres of land the government has pledged billions of dollars in relief package is to farmers and promised to increase the minimum rate on certain exports but many believe the farmers are being ignored. the government is neglecting agriculture you can from asian like wind power will be there when north is not available for the farmers government is not providing sufficient loans which is forcing foam is to knock on the doors of money lenders. those who've tried to beat the drought themselves took out huge loans to dig wells but for many it's in vain. we are losing by making these wells but we are surviving because we are determined not to come. it's suicide we are leaving a very sad life just sinking water levels mean these walls are useless but have left a deep hole in farmer's pockets to see beings turn their backs on those who couldn't
2:22 am
repay their dads the loan sharks are now demanding high interest rates and won't take no for an answer to the books money lenders and finance years are frequently visiting our home and torturing us they want to be a huge widows like rama lakshmi are now the bread winners tending to two acres of desolate farmland and rolling cigarettes to earn money to feed her children like her late husband she has no one to turn to and no way out a lonely life even though there are thousands just like her preassure either r t tell him gonna india. now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world thousands of medical workers to to the streets of the capital demanding an improvement in labor conditions althea's organized the seventy two hour strike against privatizing the sector accusing the government of the lack of dialogue with health workers chile has also been witnessing large scale student protests demanding that government continues to

provide free public education. the white house says the drone strike the targeted u.s. born terrorist. also hit a top bomb maker delivering a major blow to the group both of them were allegedly involved in a number of attacks on america including a thorough christmas day bombing in two thousand and nine american writer and investigative journalist jeremy scahill says it's still unclear eighth. a genuine threat to u.s. security. but i think there's been tremendous exaggeration of the role of importance of he was at best mid-level management of a.q. a.p. the greatest threat that he posed the united states were his videos encouraging young english speaking muslims to you know join a jihad against the united states and you know that's that was despicable some could say it was hate speech or inciting violence but we have a way of dealing with people that engage in those kinds of activities particularly when they're u.s.
2:24 am
citizens you don't just want to sesame them there would have been a way to deal with i wear a lockie that was not assassinating u.s. citizen without due process and i would love to see someone show evidence that he was posing a direct threat imminent threat to the united states which would have been required under the authorization for the use of military force to hit him in yemen afghanistan mark stan years since the u.s. invasion but is there a he's lord harford has found out u.s. citizen still don't believe this war story will have a happy ending. it's been ten years since the u.s. bound to afghanistan as a prelude to an ongoing war later has it been worth it this week let's talk about that so was this. don't want to go doing there for ten years i don't know what they have said but they do and i don't know it's probably another vietnam. war where the problem is not a we're not. going to win it's just
2:25 am
a case of more and more americans and others dying i think is clear cut see that it's not work but i don't see a goal and i really see anything changing even if we stay there another hundred years it was worth it to hunt down al qaeda but i think we did there at the start with our special forces and for the past nine years i don't think we've accomplished much at all very controversial question and there's pros and cons to the situation but at the present the proses i think that we have to make a statement that we aren't able to. say things sitting down that we have a voice and whether it's there's more peaceful ways to present that probably how does that go on for ten years that if you take a stand for ten years it's a hornet's nest there's no win over there. we're in there with them but what we have to do. well eventually going to bring peace and i mean that's such a nebulous thing right like how we really bringing peace to afghanistan well only
2:26 am
time will tell you know i don't really know enough about it to say what it was worth there and you know do you think that's crazy that your country's been at war for ten years and you don't know anything about it that is a problem. but yeah do you think most americans feel that way you know i'm sure a lot of americans there were pro and and so i i look i mean for for a war there for that long i mean i better be for something and we've got to be. it's a bit out of it and that's going to happen now it seems like most people don't feel like the u.s. war in afghanistan has been worth that unfortunately no one in power these to be listening. of raises up today here on our g.o.p. back with a headline shortly stay with us. on. the
