all of us here in moscow this is r.t. with me us of our thanks for joining it's ten years ago the u.s. began one of the longest wars in its history invading afghanistan in response to the nine eleven attacks masterminded by osama bin laden former commander of nato coalition forces a retired american general stanley mcchrystal says a frighteningly simplistic understanding of the country means the u.s. and its allies are only a round hard way towards reaching their military goals and jason that model our visit an air base north of kabul and reports that while america plans to leave afghanistan it's continuing to build up its forces where. if the united states is drawing its troops from afghanistan why is its largest base getting bigger when u.s. led forces overran the taliban in late two thousand and one bug amir field is little more than a flight tower in a cracked runway since then the former soviet base in the plains north of the afghan capital has grown into a small city that's helped over twenty five thousand full time personnel fleets of military cargo aircraft and enough equals to cause traffic jams it's an expansion
is now underway aided by scores of contractors u.s. military engineers are constructing new housing and storage facilities to make room for even more many more hardware after sending an extra thirty thousand troops to afghanistan last year president obama started bringing them home this summer but with afghan forces struggling to stand alone it's likely that less will leave than planned bases like this one are going to shrink in time so. at least there are plenty of home comforts for soldiers staying on for tough you know long deployments they can shop for everything from flat screen t.v.'s to find jewelry enjoy a cappuccino or grab some take on the new pizza hut franchise and if they're tired of working out of the gym they're free to go to the salon for a haircut and massage although some officials have tried to limit such amenities calling them a distraction from the war the troops are happy to have them and these are extremely. useful if even the latter would take.
the right. model afghan merchants are also glad to have the extra business both inside and outside the wire without beggarman the soldiers my business would be nothing we like having them here but not everyone agrees deadly taliban rocket attacks are on the rise and as the base becomes more and more crowded the threat to those living inside multiplies no matter how high it's almost become every rock it's a close call when you this can just get this much equipment personnel it's all into one tight spot get close it's going to destroy something or someone easy as it may be to forget at times this is still a war zone jason muckluck in bagram for our team. almost two thousand eight hundred american and coalition soldiers have died trying to rid of ghana's son of the taliban but according to president karzai nato has failed to provide security for civilians ruthless insurgent attacks have increased in recent months that with several high profile assassinations and shootouts in the heart of the capital kabul
civilian casualties are also on the rise it all comes after the u.s. announcement of plans to withdraw combat troops by the end of twenty fourteen and. juking of estes muslim chaplain north carolina said it's hard to accept how this one hour has achieved in afghanistan after all the military resources and money spent. it is really horrible and depressing. it is really it was a little painful to witness the bleeding wound up on society as a result of one war and destruction after another and it is it is really unfortunate after all these efforts and all this money and all these struggles hollymead a little looser national community a lot of government has achieved i understand today after ten years of you has being there i think in many ways it is worse off not better off. doing the actual. target. is to.
see. a ship to bring peace and stability to. you don't be left in danger. libyan interim government forces have launched a renewed assault on colonel gadhafi as hometown of sirte with heavy tank and grad rocket fire despite reports claiming substantial progress and the efforts to take the city there are still facing stiff resistance from those loyal to the ousted leader while thousands of people are said to have left many more have yet to do so there is a real treat for civilian casualties and is in his most recent order your message he proposed libyans to keep fighting against if the rebels now in power the civil war fought under the count of nato following a u.n. mandate to protect civilians has already claimed thousands of lives and planned
chand activists and journalists we shouldn't expect western powers to leave anytime soon. from the part of the global south africa in particular this is being an absolute disaster and civilians are clearly targeted and i think. china in this last few days china and russia have vetoed the u.n. resolution which is a similar program by nato which they cannot from libya but they want to conduct now in syria i think china and russia have admitted that they were fooled over the resolution one thousand seventy three on on libya and they're not going to before the game there's no sign whatsoever that nato is going to leave nato as will intervene even for the if the faction were amongst the rebels continues to this is the relationship continues to worsen and it's very clear that for the west and for minutes so there are men on the ground is people like jabril and so the battle is far from over. russian president dmitry medvedev has once again stated he's found
that it's not up to the united nations or native to decide the political course of the country a country should follow and he says russia will not support any u.n. resolution to impose sanctions on syria r.t.c. group is going to explain that moscow doesn't want a repeat of the libya scenario. president to do the fix pulling that russia strongly criticizes the ongoing violence in syria it supports the idea that the country is in desperate need of democratic reform it also thinks that if the current of the thirty's will not be able to create this change then we will have to go but we need to be there for stress that this will have to be the choice of the syrian people and not a result of some foreign military intervention similar to how the end vans are unfolding throw me in libya and since it be you on draft resolution on syria backed by the west did not exclude the chances of foreign military intervention russia had to block it of that it is the resolutions alters didn't take our concerns into
account worse they declined the simple proposal to station there would be no external military interference in the conflict this means only one thing our partners in the un security council do not rule out a replay of the libyan scenario although they said more than once that they clearly understood syria is very different to libya russia will continue resisting attempts to legitimize unilateral sanctions through the u.n. security council that aim to overthrow political regimes the u.n. was not created for that meanwhile the violence in syria continues according to the leaders figures coming out of the year one nearly three thousand people have lost their lives throughout the entire conflict the west says that it will continue applying pressure on syrian authorities while russia hopes that the country will be able to conduct peaceful democratic reforms on its own. still ahead for you this hour the u.k. may be tracing its words to konami crisis in pastry think of england leading counties that the country feels that bind to recession with banks downgraded and
the government implementing desperate measures to prevent. last russian prosecutors prepared to bring new charges for the murder of journalism and a political discussion of that in moscow exactly five years ago. in the u.s. occupy wall street protests again in momentum have spread to more than a dozen cities across the country including boston chicago los angeles and washington d.c. chanting the movement's message and waving placards rounds marched downtown through the american campus so active it's a way out but out worsening unemployment and the rule of the wall street bank is and blame them for causing the recession but some of the protesters have been at times by politicians rather accuse them of trying to divide the country and i know we spoke to occupy wall street activist. who believes that the simplicity of the campaign demands its greatest strength. i think actually it's an int there's an
interesting contrast there in the police response is that we're. sort of have friends pepper sprayed the water over the head with. a certain solar eclipse. it's it's intense. and so like this i was there like this. all. of this all of us are perfect i think it was lots of fear there's an incredible stress of not having a clear it was the right answer to this moment is a little bit different i don't really think this person has to come up with its own demands this articulation the need of some of the words those through the press roots organizations and movements the size of the forest service added one of the cells i think that's hurt the rebels for a time i think that we have an enormous potential to really build a movement capable of both creating an alternative structure that cycle to carve out the space for that stuff there. because that line to british banks have
suffered another body blow raising agency mages has downgraded a dozen leading u.k. or national companies including lloyds and draw bank of scotland believing the british government is now less inclined to bail out banks again if they get into trouble deepening concerns have prompted the bank of england to pump seventy five billion pounds into britain's faltering economy but mark little the director general of the u.k.'s institute of the canonic affairs says the cash injection why do the country know. we already have inflation of around about five percent in the united kingdom which compared to recent years this is hardly putting more money into the economy risks actually increasing that inflation is supposed to be the bank of england's central key task to actually keep inflation under control two and a half percent or less my concern is that quantitative easing throwing another seventy five billion pounds into the economy is actually a distraction from the u.k. government needs which is
a very aggressive and radical approach strachey's one that i think they lack at the moment what we've got to get away from in the united kingdom and actually right across the western world more generally is this idea that every single bank is copper bottomed because if they get into trouble the taxpayer will buy all them out and one of the key things that the u.k. government is struggling with is how do we allow our bye to go through the wall and to fail without very truly destroying the wider economy and i think that these these downgrades. actually reflect the fact that we are beginning to move a why promote was a hopeless and helpless situation in which basically every bank you get if you crash in the time when the government would come to the right so it's a grim warning put in the same way as you would wish to have an almost a toy from your doctor about your state of health i think it is a welcome warning. russian prosecutors are to file for us charges against kay suspects in the murder case of prominent journalist anna politkovskaya she was
gunned down five years ago at her apartment building in moscow investigators suspect. though kyra of masterminding the assassination human rights activist and painting journalist anna politkovskaya sought to expose corrupt security officials and human rights violations but while her murder has drawn worldwide attention no one has yet been convicted over the killing the slain journalist daughter says that the investigation is moving forward but valuable time may have been lost. video of that there have been different periods in the process both busy when two people were arrested almost simultaneously in two thousand and seven and passover when nothing was happening however the events of recent months give us certain optimism for a successful ending successful in terms of finding the mastermind of the murder i can tell you if the investigation was as active five years ago as it is now by this time we would have had more evidence i was well aware what kind of journalism my mother was into she would ok janelle is see if something happens to me documents
