well look. it's technology innovation all the developments around russia we've got the future. evolution returns to egypt as hundreds of thousands rally in tahrir square with efforts to deepen the political and religious divisions an ominous warning of more trouble ahead. as one of the major contributors to wiki leaks charged with aiding the enemy bases his latest hearing washington gets caught red handed in a very selective approach to handling classified data. and some of eurasia is the leading powers with russia and china in the driving seat gathered to thrash out security council backed little grandstand of the west.
watching are welcome to today now hundreds of thousands of egyptians have packed into the now iconic tahrir square in cairo running for the death penalty for former president hosni mubarak in the in the protests where the country's islamists out in force ahead of the looming presidential vote in the country and eager to capitalize on the burgeoning unrest what is tom barton is into. thousands of protesters have converged here a race where in the center of cairo you can hear the sounds of protests reverberating around the square around me a real feeling of anger in the streets tonight and it's primarily focused around the verdict in the mubarak trial hosni mubarak egypt's former president is now going to spend the rest of his life in prison it seems unless the protesters get their way at least some of them wanting to do a bit more of
a back than that and to give him the death penalty and what really set them off was six of his senior security officials who were acquitted of involvement in the deaths of hundreds of protesters in egypt's revolution last year this 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 protest going around the crowds saying that if he was elected president he would drag mubarak back to trial and try and help in 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 bed 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 barred from standing in these presidential elections but his links to the old regime are simply. to 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 at the moment this atmosphere has brought people out not just here in the capital but all over egypt 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 really ignition of the spirit of protest against what is seen as very little
change compared to what was wanted from last year's revolution. for egypt's ruling military council meanwhile has issued the parliament with a forty eight hour ultimatum to agree to a constitutional assembly contender one decided on by the generals in the contributing editor of foreign policy in focus dot org says it's likely 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 selection my concern is that if the military or the police decide to provoke something with the demonstrators then you might have to
shift in the direction of sheer feet because people are concerned about stealing the exciter keep in mind these demonstrations did not start over the question of democracy they started over a question of bread of unemployment poverty except for a so this is not just about roses this is about bread and that has not gone away. well later in the program another regional hotspot syria allows humanitarian aid workers into the country becomes amid an escalation of violence as a fragile cease fire is left hanging by a thread from syria coming up shortly. and america's defense chief cozies up to india's leadership as a string of bad luck he's the us short of base its head of its military move into the asia pacific for. now we could exporters are assembling their forces on wednesday as bradley manning one of the major contributors to the web site faces his at latest hearing he's charged with twenty two separate crimes including aiding
the enemy which is a capital offense but as in the 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 can take small bradley manning the obama administration has wasted an unprecedented war on whistleblowers prosecuting more of them under a spanish 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 when it suits them to do so one of those with what was written with the book obama's wars done by bob woodward where they played out two chapters of information about current operations and also with the catholic bible bigelow project regarding seal team six taken out of the law 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 where 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 data 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 blockbuster. 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 once the endsleigh institution called its actions and attract millions of potential recruits in recent months to other movies to about the navy's. viber and to valor how for safety official assistance veteran hollywood reporter david robb says the pentagon has for a long time had access to the scripts of hollywood filmmakers to show the military in a better line and the american people are seeing hundreds and hundreds of films 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 that this creates a false image in the american people's mind so while for some it will get you back . others very trying to project patrick and propaganda on to the silver screen my integration archie reporting from los angeles california about. how to remind the world's top whistleblower to the sones has his own t.v. show right here at r.t. latest edition is coming up next hour. terrorism and extremism both are on the table at the annual summit of the racers a six pioneering powerhouses this time being held in china the book known as the shanghai cooperation organization but also touched upon the global foreign policy the leaders of iran and afghanistan invited to join the gathering parties a look see a shift key reports from beijing. we have
a very busy day ahead of us were understand that. a state visit to china his first state visit as russia's president will be transforming into the summit of the shah high corporation 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 we're also expecting very many important meetings on the sidelines of the summit between. the presidents of ghana stan and iran the 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 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. there well for more analysis on this let's cross live now to de saying he's a deputy director of the renmin center for china's foreign strategic studies and he
joins us now live from beijing thank you for joining us here at r.t. now the annual summit of the shanghai cooperation organization is due to start later today will be focusing on countering terrorism extremism in central asia how successful is it likely to be your opinion. on the security issues the ready to go to. organizations achievements because i used i you know if i open the front part now we can say is if we're not with this organization without a book question of constraints that the partners would be much worse off. while the organization has existed in its current form only since two thousand and one so does that mean it lacks influence on the global arena. so far i should say. it's down much in russia comparison
made your complaint was skewed too to the state of our house has many. factors but on the some of the issues like that little call on the eurasian continent geopolitics and a counterterrorism. which the russian shopping centers i think it's a still very french so does it have a potential that could become a more powerful force outside of that. is it likely to be more powerful outside of those issues you mentioned. so far because. some of the grievances which we the member states are was the future role it could so i think it's mainly because of that kind of disagreements between the members it's limited to protection so if the main players could hit it with each
other then i think. a lot of potential but really now as you know china is a veto wielding permanent member of the u.n. security council and has resisted u.s. demands a function is over iran how much does that strengthen iran's hand. because with the whole house a lot of water for the wrong. stuff or trying as the job. i think in some more passive gesture it's that you cannot say that china is playing around should china do not take any side between iran and or bust it's immoral. and neutral which. now looking at the area now in both moscow and beijing are reading from the same page when it comes to the syrian crisis trying to repel growing calls down the tracks and that why is there
this unity between the two nations. and we always talk about a strong russian relationship or a chance to put a strategy to call the nations that both of us live updates you saw those structures short form but last so early it seems not to need a new dynamic in mind cannot believe that china and russia are close to each other and on the global and regional strategy it's used to keep records with each other to try to match or so on business and we're used to china not have done much rather interest involved and obviously china russia kind of the support of russia on that common sense and the full full full of all we may june when we talk about to that it's you know we take it we understand in such
a way say she really is a syrian case years or more records and hundred different. it's just right that she our dr rice and that the. concerns on the n.t. show horse and. bill strategically group the. chris bieber provocatively coming future we just want to keep independent keep in neutral position between these different powers and of course the. tariff to leave it there they don't have the rector of the renmin center for china's foreign strategic studies thank you for joining us. well remember we've got all the latest stories and videos on our website r.t. dot com it's a taste of what's there for you right now an extraterrestrial phenomenon which left both astronomers and amateurs gasping check out the spectacular images and video transit of venus crossed the sun. done his latest state appearance has
provoked the wrath of france aspiring writer find out why it's not been music. to. the syrian government has agreed to their aid workers into the country for the first time be based in four cities hit hard by the violence among them homs since the rebels said they were abandoning the u.n. cease fire plan there have been violent clashes with security forces who are syria has given the marching orders to seventeen diplomats from u.s. britain france and turkey. basters has accused foreign powers of funding and arming the opposition fighters at least explanitory county police those countries are motivated by regime change. when america
vassal state slow growth some talk about transition what they are effectively mean is regime change that is what they did in libya with dire consequences as we can see in their concrete today in syria the plan to bring both sides to the table have been negotiated settlement is obviously the best way to move forward but the united states and britain there are other red lights absolutely no pressure on the other side to come to the negotiate negotiating table. start 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 aspire to do so. well as well as being the scene of ongoing
violence syria has been locked in a so-called information war as the country's minister of information told r.t. mainstream media coverage often clashes with reality his full interview is coming up later this hour but here's a preview. of the very people responsible for their film their crimes. 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 big substituted with fabrications these lies and the only way for them to achieve their objectives in their war against syria out of 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. now the white house says if president assad hands control to the opposition it will help bring an end to fifteen months of bloodshed but i said has consistently maintained that his country's real war comes from the outside people of ellen the guests at this gas the syrian conflict in detail in crosstalk i think evan thirty g.m.t. today. with the syria case when we talk about the end there are no peace plane in play and it's being observed all the clear that is just the stepping stone for validating setting the pretext for military intervention by the nato powers there is a lot of smuggling of arms from. and to syria there is
a lot of smuggling of arms from iraq to syria and the longer this conflict festers the more smuggling there is going to be the more radicalized the fighters are going to be and the more outsiders are going to intervene in this conflict. and. now anyone who breaches the peace during demonstrations in russia would not be hit hard in their one itself the senate passed a new bill dramatically hiking fines for low violations comes after a record american in parliament but it took eleven hours to approve the legislation with a meeting with lasting through the night fines have been ramped up to fifty times taking into line with levels in europe. first time for vandalism you know half a dozen euros in italy for example not following a police dispersal results in
a five thousand final written present mattias been introduced after several opposition rallies in russia turned violent protesters throwing paving stones and attacking police off they set up tent camps in public places. now with the united states losing a string of critical bases across central asia the pentagon is apparently launched a new drive to secure more analyze and secretary leon panetta is on a p.r. toward india publicly asking new delhi to take on a greater role in afghanistan the analysts say there is far more at stake and washington has gone to india slated for a bigger role i mean last pakistan support of america's future afghanistan threatened by a resurgence turnabout the much touted move to the asia pacific. parties preassure to reports now just why america is so eager to cozy up to india. the world got it india it's the planet's biggest arms importer and if that hundred billion dollar.
on beefing up its military arsenal over the next decade while many weapon makers from far and wide are lining up to cash in on this need to modernize the united states has dash to the front of the pack. to strengthen its need. to fund our america. ships and also. grow through the movie to many it's seen as part of the u.s. is bigger shift towards asia one that its defense secretary leon panetta is now touring the region to actively engaging in a chair you were a report issued by the american government of china has listed along with iran as one of the us is biggest adversaries the report also specifically singled out india as the main country washington would pursue as a strategic partner in the region the united states has already been thinking better of all amount of energy strengthening military ties with india it just told
them time military transport planes for four point four billion dollars india also conducts the most military exercises with the united states than any other country many analysts say that it could be a way for washington to use new delhi to counterbalance its new enemy china. to china you know. what are you going to say is that. what this includes. and. it was to american influence an issue while india is happy to have a partner to advance their arsenals and many observers are watching the american interest with caution is one of india's biggest trading partner i mean we are neighbors we can reach each other we should not be made a proxy rather power soon or. every should not for the bad moods of the americans i
mean the americans i think got a big lining. it's a declining superball. region as the united states continues to buddy up to india it looks like it could be using their new found friend to bully its enemy preassure either r t new delhi india. brief look at some other top stories from around the world the south two suicide bombers have blown themselves up in kandahar the largest city and then a stone south killing at least twenty two people and wounding fifty others the blast occurred at a market several kilometers from nato running around the field all victims are civilians supplying the base police reports the taliban has kind of sponsibility for the attack. the. panic over the euro crisis is not only to reach germany's defenses with great agency moody's downgrading seven bits major banks
commerce bank second largest bank is to teach justifications that europe's economy cannot withstand potential financial shocks matters in the euro zone deteriorate. also here two or three of those largest financial groups this just a day after another agency standard and poor's so there was a one in three chance of greece leaving a single currency in their future. time to business news now it's course able to marina thanks carol well of course following the european markets someone the last war expected would see the markets head south but we're seeing a completely different picture if we take a look now at the latest figures we'll see that both the sea and the dikes are posting gains today footsie is up over one percent in the dikes and slowly approaching one of the half percent in the black and also we know that investors are waiting for a key interest rate decision made by the european central bank and many analysts are speculating that it will be left unchanged at one per cent and also e.c.b.
staff are expected to downgrade their growth projections if that does happen it's safe to say that we will see markets go down once again now in other news we know that the european commission later today will unveil a new proposal also nuts to make sure taxpayers' money isn't do used to bail out failed banks they want to prevent banks from dragging down the entire system and this issue of was of course highlighted with greece and spain and let's not forget that spain is currently trying to find some one hundred billion dollars to strengthen its capital buffers and officials want to ensure that banks shareholders and creditors are the ones held accountable for losses incurred by banks. now look at asian markets they have now closed for the day session and they ended the day on the positive note the nikkei added close to two percent. well that close to one and a half percent and we know that in hong kong property and consumer stocks were among the ones in particularly well and also in japan the weaker again help
japanese exporters there and the yen dropped after the g. seven conference call meeting according to japanese to the japanese financial minister the euro zone member said that they wouldn't object to tokyo taking further measures to make sure incur the volatility of the yen now moving on to a year and second look at the latest figures both the r.t.s. and the mindsets are gaining higher oil prices off course to help in and of course it was take a look at currencies and see the euro is gaining against the dollar when it comes to the ruble it's game against both major currencies and we know that for the past three trading days the central bank has been selling about hundred million dollars daily and that's to support the ruble and we see the result right there and this so we have time for this nation of business i'll have more for you next hour by for now.
