of the media makes its judgment on a rushers a political future this in the wake of the interview over his decision not to seek a second term. a very warm welcome to you this is on the line from moscow with me wrong research. nor the cause of our nato peacekeepers have used a shoot to kill threats to break a roadblock by protesters on the border. to remove it this week failed and left several subs and now. he has this report from close to the action. on friday the k. four troops removed one of the barricades which because it was set up
in order to block the police and the k. for troops from gaining access to the area and we understand that more than one hundred twenty four troops came over there pointed their guns at the serbs locating this particular area and ordered them that they should leave the serbs obeyed and retreated peacefully with no violence and set up another a manmade checkpoint and two large trucks on a bridge thus blocking the road the access ok for troops into the northern part of course there was still more than ten people remain in local hospitals in the middle of it so in the town of. after being injured in tuesday's clashes with a k. four troops we managed to pay them a visit and ask them what exactly happened on tuesday. of this. we were standing by the barricade when the soldiers started shouting and shooting at us i didn't know what they were shooting with so i got scared and started running away and i was hit on the shoulder and it turned out to be
a perforated my lungs the most interesting fact here is that they came for troops and nato have been trying to convince everybody that they only used rubber bullets and tear gas grenades against the angry mob to pacify them but doctors and local hospitals told us that they those people who were injured in those clashes were delivered to hospitals carrying gunshot wounds to the room. seven men in heavy condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises they were not from rubber bullets not a single of them had a rubber all those wounds were caused by regular bullets which we extracted from their bodies. now the serbs may have lost one of their checkpoints but they have lots more around the area we've counted more than ten different checkpoints the determination of the sort of people is very strong now to show that they do not want to be part of the course of the republic. and they are telling us to
leave because we have no way to leave this is because castle is our land our home and our life it seems that we are on our own now and we will stand our ground there has been very harsh international response on the actions of this week here in kosovo with the united states using the course of a service of provoking violence and the russian foreign ministry expressing deep concerns over the situation here saying that this may seem as a small as a minor border crossing this but in reality this could destabilize the situation in the whole region. reporting actions of the nato peacekeepers may only provoke not prevent violence that's according to belgrade based political analyst alexander . they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when
they were the air force for the albanian separatists are now acting as their infantry so this is what we have said this is clear breach of the un charter and of the resolution twelve forty four all they're doing right now is that they're actually. destabilizing the situation they're actually bringing conflict. everything was reasonably peaceful until they gave the green light for albanian special police forces to forcibly take the administrative border back in july and ever since then they've been giving them full support disappear encouraging actually the government to preach to me. headed by a hotshot chief wanted for various charges from organ trafficking to drug trafficking and that they're encouraging him to more violence they're not a peace factor at all they're total factor of war and the stabilization.

looking for their presence provides little security as they follow no particular order isn't far off their weapons at will robert perry he's the editor of internet investigative magazine consortium news he thinks people are now just realizing the cost of blindly supporting the revolutionary forces. there was 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 al qaeda one of the al-qaeda leaders who was killed recently it 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 qaida and was indeed detained by the united states for some time before he was allowed to go free so it appears that people with the guns on the side of the libyan rebels are now the government are people who have this very mixed background and it's not clear how they play out when you get down to the point of once the country under
the control of this force which side of this force will will be predominant. now a libyan revolutionary forces say they have surrounded a city of sake of half a stronghold meanwhile aid agencies are alarmed at the thousands of civilians fleeing the perceived town people are being driven from their homes by fierce fighting and an overall back of supply lines the deputy editor of the independent online magazine spiked says the situation has only been made worse by nato. this is the inevitable consequence of the think things that they got rolling back in february you know the kind of half hearted intervention was always going to end up with last stand by gadhafi forces in fact this is the last stand that we expected in tripoli a few weeks ago that never happened and it's clearly there's a lot of this thing about the rose leaves national community now could be making things worse not simply called bombarding the city put oil actually having made
such a fuss about civilians being injured or for her sleep perfectly healthy but by saying that if given the khadafi force there's a real chance to keep those civilians in the city. probably. really that would like to get out of there no. we're trying to shield by which the they can they can stay there for a high on for a bit longer and with no end in sight to the libyan conflict many are warning that one could follow the path of the afghan war that's been raging pro decade now and later in the program here on r.t. we ask people in new york what they think ten years of fighting there but you. don't see a goal and really see anything changing even if you see there another hundred years for a war there for that long it better be for something you know we've got to be years of get out of it if you think that's going to happen no more opinions on the worthiness of the afghan war from the big apple that's coming your way in just

a concern out here is to the single currency means higher taxes low gov expenditure and cuts in their standard of living and also for and also even even for a country like germany in fact specifically a country like germany at here's 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 now and it is because of the fanaticism of this european elite and we should look very carefully at what they have to say in the future these are real human 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 caught 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 koreans of your is which are required are actually paid out and called on and it's now. only greeks up in arms about the situation they've been dumped into but us is also witnessing angry mood right in the nation's financial hub hundreds of throwing their weight behind the latest demonstration it's called occupy wall street the whole point is to protest against the huge influence and bad behavior of corporations and billionaires artes and i see a truck and i was there. testers are here for a simple reason they feel duped and defrauded by the system that street greed keep our financial meltdown that led to an economic collapse one in six americans currently living in poverty bankers were held down accounts and it was people have to suffer this could be the skeleton. getting of what you are somebody as high profile activists and scholars started joining these crowds it became harder for the media to ignore these demonstrations it also became hard for most americans to
not take these crowd seriously as police brutality started to occur last weekend over eighty three were arrested several women were surrounded by police man and nice with pepper spray but these protesters say they're willing to pay any price to get their voices heard a lot of people are from the one percent you know and you know a fraction of the one percent that have all the money and really all of our if you think about it because would they say goes they influenced a lot of decisions which doesn't help anyone else but them. that's why everyone else is going through the test gather first family and support. system become reminiscent of what america is something the stance in this country for up to seventy thousand people essentially support the capitol building because there was one of the union support that he has to have.
any of these demonstrators are planning to see here and growth numbers until a real he's ready to ship her after all if the arab spring was applauded by the powers that be why not listen to a similar cry for change. is the situation our team. and i want as the authorities are accused of trying to silence the angry voices on wall street. cars around the refusing to stay quiet let's have a look at why some are so keen to put an end so you financial. all rooms. the world bank the fed to be o.e. all agree there we can't talk to peer in the financial world here's a little bit ago cliff i want to turn to and this is the former greek finance minister yeah nice papantonio and he is that talking about this rumor is that a fifty percent. haircut and greek debt should a solution require a fifty percent hack out as as i believe the current fronts minister has suggested . you know they've got to put its muses closer because if you could be this be said
dangers to pretty dangerous proposition for greece yes pop antonio financial harpies i mean that's and he doesn't want to talk about it understandably but the cure for financial purposes yanis antonio is you've got to talk about it you've got to go to the doctor or whatever and you've got to take care of your financial harpies i realise it's embarrassing and you should have been fornicating with the i.m.f. they gave me the financial herpes and now you're a pariah. and i was just a quarter past the hour here in moscow you without me but the russian president is speaking of the russian press now is chewing over the president's latest interview that of a president here it's where he explained his decision not to enter the upcoming presidential race of the president because he shares common goals with vladimir putin and the current prime minister's high popularity levels make him the best man
for the kind of see he got a piskun off now has the reaction from the paper's. well the president's interview with the heads of the three biggest t.v. stations in russia did focus on some of the most important the latest political events in the country such as his decision not to run for a second term in office his recommendation of prime minister rudd even a question for the job job and to the sudden dismissal of former finance minister aleksey who didn't so there's a loss of analysis and opinions in saturday's press in russia opinions both positive and not so positive was started with the crimean sun newspaper really you were well known here in russia and it's published an article trying to show you this polish laura go under the title of what were you after your ambition and the analysts that the newspaper was talking to have been saying that even though the the media has finally announced his political plans and he plans of his stand them
with prime minister why do you push and there's still a lot of uncertainty since the official political programs for the upcoming problem entry and presidential elections still have not been announced however this point of view is not shared by the analysts that he's this did you speak for a school to use another well known big newspaper in russia is published an article under the title of how significant is the timing and its analysts have been saying that the media has finally managed to close a deal list of the biggest clears during that upcoming presidential election next more true now lots of focus is definitely on the sudden dismissal girls now former finance minister alex equally who is always thought to be the key ally both off the government's hands off the president's administration the camera suddenly newspaper says that step to dismiss him as receiving more questions into what else could
happen well be that he did if he's still in office. however there are analysts who see. the dismissal just shows that the president is serious in his ambitions just too much of the problem and she oh action will be held in russia in the g. samara and the presidential glow will be held next more cheney going to happen still for indeed meeting indeed if it's still going to be up to the people to decide who gets to run the country next despite any recommendation for. me to see. what i mean time political analyst. he told us here at r.t. and that the logic and mission of decision was clear from the day it wasn't and now i think this situation is pretty logical. and mediator football for representing the same political force united russia not being completely similar nor being poor is in politics they're still pretty close to logically and
politically at this point is needed if explained. is more popular then we did of himself and the question is about winning the next presidential election there will not come automatically it will be a fight he was more equipped to lead the united russia in their fight presidential struggle at the same time he did it for years keeping his position as an important political figure as a potential prime minister and potential leader of the united russia which makes him a politician with great perspective in the future. i go you can watch the full version of interview on artsy dot com. devastated by drought and crops killed by chemicals farmers in india face a battle for survival one of the driest seasons in decades has left thousands of

not a winner. the other soldier going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others dying things clearcut see that it's not worth. 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 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 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. seek things sitting down that we have a voice in whether it's there's more peaceful ways to present that probably how does that go on for ten years that you take a stand for ten years it's a hornet's nest there's no winner over there we have great. we're in there with them but what do we have to do. well to go to bring peace and i mean that's such a nebulous thing right like why we really bringing peace to afghanistan well only
time will tell you know i don't really know enough about it to say whether it was worth it don't you think it's crazy that your country's been at war for ten years and you don't know anything about it that is a problem there. but yeah do you think most americans feel that way you know i'm sure a lot of americans there were pro and anti i'll look at this what i mean for for a war there for that long i mean i better be for something and we better be. it's a bit out of it if you think that's going to happen. it seems like most people don't feel like the u.s. war in afghanistan has been worth it unfortunately no one in power seems to be listening. with our headlines.
