as in egypt's revolution last year there's also added tension around these protests because very shortly egypt will enter the second round of its presidential elections but many people here expressing a lot of frustration they see the choice in those elections as being really no choice at all one candidate mohammed morsi is from the muslim brotherhood he's been trying to garner support here at the protests going on around the crowds saying that if he was elected president he would drag mubarak back to trial and try and how often execute it which has struck a chord with some of the protesters however he has received criticism from a wide wide number of groups as well they see the muslim brotherhood as religiously conservative and warn that they may try and hijack this revolution the other half of it shafique is mubarak's last prime minister and a former air force officer the protesters just as angry about him they say that he
could well be or should well be darker standing in the presidential elections but his links to the old regime are simply too close and that he's going to have a lot of convincing to do to try and make people believe that he's not in with the old regime and the military council that's ruling out the moment this atmosphere has brought people out not just here in the capital but all over he gypped this was intended to be a million man march tonight we're not sure whether a million of have turned out it doesn't seem that it's that many but it certainly is a huge protest and a real re ignition of the spirit of protest against what is seen as very little change compared to what was wanted from last year's revolution.
ruling military council meanwhile as it suited the parliament with a forty eight hour ultimatum to agree to a constitutional assembly or contend with one sided on the general's kannan and contributing editor of foreign policy in focus dot org says it's a lot to me that the military is working to extend the egyptian impasse and therefore extend its rule over the country if your feet is removed then of course you have no choice but that the military council stays so i do think that the military has set things up in such a way that they will continue as a major force how much of a major force i think depends on those people who are out there in the squares and what finally comes out of this election my concern is that if the military or the police decide to provoke something with the demonstrators then you might have a shift in the direction of shift feet because people are concerned about state delivery excedrin keep in mind he still did not start over the question of
democracy he started over a question of bread of unemployment poverty except or a so this is not just about roses this is about bread and that has not gone away. well there too in the program another regional hot spot syria allows humanitarian aid workers into the country comes amid an installation of violence as a fragile cease fire is left hanging by a thread. on america's defense chief cozies up to india's leadership as a string of bad luck because the us short of bases ahead of its military move into the asia pacific. we killick supporters are sending their forces on wednesday as bradley manning one of the major contributors to the website faces his latest hearing he's charged with twenty two separate crimes including aiding the enemy which is a capital offense but in a question over reports washington's interpretation of the freedom of speech
depends on who you actually are. from a former cia officer who questioned waterboarding to suspected we keep small bradley manning the obama administration has waged an unprecedented war on whistleblowers prosecuting more of them under a span ash laws than old previous administrations combined but it seems one man snitch is another man's spin doctor the problem with the current situation with the current white house is they have leaked classified information for both times what it serves to do one of those with what was with the book obama's wars done by bob woodward or they played out two chapters of information about current operations and also with the careful bagel bigelow project regarding seal team six taken out of bed was last year at this time the film in question which is titled as zero dark thirty covers last year's raid by u.s. commandos on the pakistani compound where some of bin laden was hiding the conservative watchdog judicial watch has obtained records revealing that hollywood
filmmakers were given access to proof the undisclosed information about the operation oscar winning director kathryn bigelow and screenwriter mark boal were even granted at tour around the fold as cia building were tactical planning for the raid took place the film is out in december but was initially due to be released just weeks before november's presidential elections sad facts all some flak fly the administration's way while the entire project has raised concerns over the way intelligence is being used it's best that this kind of information particularly as it revolves around what's surrounding this movie remains classified it absolutely has to it's very unfortunate that it's coming out to be used for political purposes for a congressional election however there is nothing unusual about the defense department
collaborating with the makers of hollywood blockbusters. it's a partnership that dates back to the middle of the twentieth century and it has proved effective the pentagon has what hollywood filmmakers won access to millions of dollars worth of military equipment to use in the movies and hollywood has what the pentagon wants the end plans to sugarcoat its actions and attract millions of potential recruits in recent months to other movies about the navy seals long survivor and act of valor how for safety official assistance veteran hollywood reporter david roth says the pentagon has for a long time had access to the scripts of hollywood filmmakers to show the military in a better light and the american people are seeing hundreds and hundreds of thrones and television shows that have been sanitized by the military and to make military seem more heroic than it really is and never wrong and always good but this creates
a false image in the american people's mind so while for some weeks we'll get true walked out others are trying to project patrick to some and propaganda on to the silver screen my integration archie reporting for a las angeles california. remember the world's top whistleblower julian assange has his own interview show here on r.t. they tested this news coming up in about twenty minutes from now. regional terrorism and extremism both are on the table at the annual summit of the races six pioneering powerhouses this time being held in china the book known as the shanghai cooperation organization but also touch upon global foreign policy with leaders of iran and afghanistan invited to join the gathering what is next the r.c.s. the reports now from beijing. we have a very busy day ahead of us we're understand. a state visit to china his first state visit as russia's president will be transforming into the summit of the shah
corp organization the organization which has celebrated its tenth year anniversary last year and definitely all sides all countries involved in this organization have been noting that the corporation has been very successful especially in this security field something which has been a burning issue for the central asian states and that's where we already know that there has been very great success in the talks between the leaders of the countries were also expecting very many important meetings on the sidelines of the summit between. the presidents of ghana stan and iran something which we of course will be bringing more information on as soon as we get it and this will probably be the main focus certainly this summit comes just a day after the start of it would an official state visit to china these sites have managed to sign very important agreements and listing economic ties and have managed to exchange their views on many different global policy issues and reported that they have been seeing eye to eye on all those issues in particular certainly
the growing military strength of the united states in the asian pacific region something which greatly concerns china russia is agreeing with beijing on that matter and certainly the developments in the middle east even if we didn't mention did that russia and china are seeing eye to eye on the syrian conflict such a strong relations between beijing and moscow have been causing some concerns in the west primarily because china is a growing developing developing state with its economy and military being stronger every year we are following certainly all the interesting developments during the summit in the next two days here and we'll be bringing all the latest information to our viewers as soon as we get it. chicago based international affairs commentator rick ross off says the shanghai cooperation organization has the potential to become a serious. as we know this is the twelfth summit that will the head of state meeting of the shanghai cooperation organization which created in two thousand and
one to place matters in perspective we have to recall that with not only the full six members of the c.e.o. but with the fact that in two thousand and five india pakistan and iran in mongolia are well were welcomed as observers of maize from the sense on of course voters in sri lanka the ground what are called dialogue partners there's been discussion i have of the summit and was to get the pounds out that afghanistan may join is that there's an observer in turkey may join as a dialogue partner but even as currently constituted this shanghai cooperation organization is correct the population response how to leave them on the graves to lie on my house so see all members of the observer states sixty percent of the eurasian land so this is a very important organization and that's one that still even twelve years up there is foundation stone the embryo stage in money in many ways and one that once it's fully bore and comes into the world in earnest is going to be one of the most important developments in his career. but remember we've got all the latest stories

a process of talks so it would appear to me that what we now have is an end game situation where the united states has decided to remove this regime and will use everything in a spot to do so. well as well as being the scene of ongoing violence syria has been locked in a so-called information war as countries minister of information adnan the who told r.t. mainstream media coverage often clashes with reality his full interview is coming up next hour but here's a pretty. the very people responsible for deaths film bear crimes and sent the footage to the media blaming the government for the atrocities and a recent study shows that ninety percent of satellite coverage on syria has nothing to do with the actual situation in the country it's all lies and fabrications this again proves that there is a real information war waged against syria with real facts being substituted with
fabrications these lies and the only way for them to achieve their objectives in their war against syria the houla massacre is a good example of that that as soon as the first pictures of the massacre were released everybody started accusing the syrian army and security forces but we all know who was really behind this crime today the people of syria are targeted by terrorists who are armed and sponsored by regional powers like qatar saudi arabia and turkey as well as by western nations such as the us. there are united states losing a slew of critical bases across central asia the pentagon has apparently launched a new drive to secure more defense secretary leon panetta is in a toiling publicly asking new delhi to take on a greater role in afghanistan and a say there's that state and washington has got india slated for
