iran's exclusion from the upcoming international meeting on syria in geneva casts doubt over the impact of the gathering which aims to find a way to end the country's bloodshed. this one mistake that we've committed we put all our eggs in the american fast. allies turning into anime's three out of four pakistanis now think of the us as the or foe with anger growing over civilian deaths from america's drone attacks. and divided they stand disagreements between leaders play the bloc summit even before it starts with germany rejecting the idea of debt sharing crushing the hopes of crisis hits countries.
this is r t coming to life from moscow i'm maria joshie iran will be briefed on the results of an international meeting on the syrian crisis despite not being invited according to the office of u.n. peace envoy kofi annan earlier the u.s. objected to iran's participation of the talks on saturday and at uniting influential states behind proposals for a syrian led political transition russia and the us are divided on the issue of iran's involvement with the two nations along with a number of western and arab countries due to tand the gathering diplomats say saturday's meeting in geneva will focus on an idea of a syrian national unity cabinet that would include government and opposition members but would exclude quote those whose participation what's on their mind it's not exactly clear what that means for the talks however are likely to be marked by further there are differences between washington and moscow a little analysts say are more success taking sides of the conflict undermines the
credibility of the mediation effort. has not been invited because of the firm you. it's position that iran be excluded from any talks when it comes to syria the secretary of state made it very clear that basically because iran supports assad they should be excluded from any talks with that which is absolutely absurd position to take because washington actually supports regime change so by that you know the country is on logic it should actually be excluded from any talks on the situation in syria so really this is washington's heavy hand coming down again on international affairs and particularly in this region and you know as russia has stated this conference coming together really well not much impact if it excludes iran and it is very unfortunate this is unfortunate kofi annan who also insists that iran should be included has caved in to us will on this and has excluded iran from the upcoming about and. u.n.
panel of investigators has admitted it is unable to determine who was behind the whole massacre in may that left one hundred eight civilians including many women and children dead at the taft or most western states at the time to lay the blame squarely on the government martin cited from the globalist online magazine says he's not surprised the panel failed to reach a definitive conclusion. i think the report is so uncertain because the evidence it had to sift through was on certain this was not a cut and dried case despite misleading reports in the western press that it was i think this is a classic case were both public pundits and even the spokesman of major governments needs to learn to watch their language until they know for sure what the facts of a situation are and this was not done in this case people shot from the hip objectivity requires coercion it requires a restraint from pointing figures rushing to assign blame that is not responsible
diplomacy it leads to very dangerous say so it's between major powers it's a very responsible behavior when our team has got hold of video footage purporting to be of an alleged massacre in the syrian city of hama and you may find some of the following images disturbing why syrian family claims their relatives were slaughtered by rebels we'll bring you more of the story later today on our team when we're joined by our correspondent live from syria. three and four pakistanis now consider the u.s. anatomy according to a new survey published in america ties between the two countries have recently hit new lows over the civilian casualties caused by ongoing u.s. drone attacks more than twenty people have been killed in militant attacks in pakistan over the past few days alone adding to the thousands of lives lost since the washington led war in afghanistan began eleven years ago i just get it takes
a closer look at a complicated alliance. it's not only u.s. bombs that fly in pakistan but also the stream of demands and accusations from washington there are several things that where asking the pakistanis to do more and better number one they've got to do more about the safe havens inside their own country even ridiculed the u.s. defense secretary has laughed at pakistan for being in the dark on the bin laden raid. literally in washington's rhetoric now suggest that during the decade of war in afghanistan pakistan had been there myself instrumental ally in the region the united states could not have had security gone in stone in three weeks with minimum cost in terms of. money and in terms of in terms of the lives of its
soldiers that would not have been possible without fox and the assistance and help three sentiment towards the alliance with the us has fueled domestic insurgency pakistan hoxton has lost about somewhere between five thousand to six thousand soldiers and paramilitary soldiers but more than that we've lost more than thirty five thousand civilians and these people died because of these spate of bombings in a crude comparison the us has lost two thousand troops in afghanistan they want the pakistanis to do our dirty work for us and the pakistanis have simply said we've supported you forward eleven years we can't do it anymore you're killing our stability they have to stop the civil war in the country they have to stop the war that's going on on their own territory because of their help for the united states so they have a number of problems which i think amount to a mass and they're going to be left high and dry when we leave many washington see
a different picture of a country that does not fully do their. waiting in exchange for the billions they'd sent them were given taxpayer money to this country which is not treating those who were eight we've made a mistake we were we have trusted pakistan way too long the pakistanis see another mistake there's one mistake that we've committed we've put all our eggs in the american basket and part of the deterioration in our genes strategic position over the past decade since two thousand and one is because of this fact that we completely relied on the americans and it's not the first time they've dished it be before as well but but so to speak we made this mistake and we're trying to know correct that mistake pakistan is now working hard on its regional alliances primarily with china but the u.s. still needs pakistan washington has been able to continue drone strikes in pakistan likely because of its military leaders tacit agreement the u.s. also needs the short route through pakistan to supply the troops in afghanistan
islam law shutting down last year in response to the killing of two dozen pakistani soldiers but with elections approaching their end with people furious at the u.s. there is little chance the pakistani policymakers will want to be seen as being more accommodating to the united states the mockery and condescending remarks from washington make those chances even slimmer during the last decade of war and have got is that pakistanis have dealt with an unprecedented insurgency in their own country terror which has killed an awful lot of people much more than the losses carried by the u.s. in afghanistan and that to a large extent was the price pakistan paid for its alliance with the u.s. but these days in washington it seems hardly anyone keeps that in mind when handing out another portion affect his ations and humiliation to the nation they once convinced to become their ally i'm going to stick our reporting from washington our to. u.s. war is also come at a high price for the american public art a special report focuses on the families whose loved ones died on foreign soil.
excuse me can i speak with you sure did me good news but. i sort of don't agree you don't agree with everything my son is and isn't is a marine i don't know what is going to be for you fair to. be. sure of your country. country. did you cruise to moon or hope to help you find me. you find in some of the. some things. well there's a kind of reports coming your way next hour here on our team so i had for you this hour thousands throw their support behind weakly excited or juliana songe that what a war is amnesty's in the u.k. and us receiving a flood of e-mails urging the nation to accept the world's most famous. plus
the official anti obligation to go on the phone on pod touch from the choose our. life on the go. video on demand tease mine comes an r.s.s. feeds now in the palm of your. question on the dot com. deeply divided evaders are gearing up for a summit this thursday this has german chancellor angela merkel insisted there will
be no debt share in europe a stance that won't sit well with troubled states such as spain and italy and there's also no relief for greece where the country's most vulnerable suffering under a sterile as art has taken graves now reports. dealing with the problems facing disabled greeks on a daily basis is all too familiar with the realities of euro zone back to stare or to the new government will be as you step in the bounds of the second bailout and. that means that you have car public. spending. within a month actually up to further eleven point five years she points out it's been three months since anyone has been paid five to disability benefits it's really difficult to have a health problem in greece today fighting a long term battle with multiple cirrhosis sophie is now without state support
stricken health care system is left out on the road. i want you because i have money from my job but that other people cannot even get their medications. from my own pharmacist. and get medications. for help i'm going to go. so if you don't get. this money you can't austerity fewer state cutbacks often prove in the toughest of those who need the money the most cases like the fees are by no means unique in modern day greece but one question is now being asked of the government is it down to a simple lack of state funds or are they misspending what little they do have nearly full on the current government is largely made up of old factions new democracy and the past party made up the ruling coalition of the previous administration presiding over
a period of cuts for the military remain somewhat shielded in two thousand and ten as debt ridden greece penned its first bailout deal signed away one billion euro to france and germany and one. that is contracts but even with no obvious conflicts looming is an expenditure still defended this is because. in the military we don't have so much clout as we have. in the social structure of for example in the hospitals we have. that we don't have in the military greece is not the country that can stay without an active army but given the current plight of many greeks it appears there's nothing left to axe from health care on the back of public pressure the new government is now seeking a reworking called the bailout conditions was the sun may have set on greece's latest round of political instability as economic troubles are still very much
under the spotlight to hear greece see things but while germany continues to call for more discipline among the debt ridden states the nation is unwilling to implement the same measures at home that's according to british and i p fort. we have another european summit where everybody seems to be disagreeing before they even get into the room. speaking to german colleagues speaking to for example finnish colleagues there's still enormous lee uncomfortable with the idea that they effectively guaranteeing the other countries in the euro zone's debts and the two sides to this deal they say on one side you're asking us to guarantee you a debt to these euro bonds on the other side if we're going to do that we want to have control of how you spend your money we want to have control of your national budgets and so then the the week tending to be seven european countries is saying no we're not going to give up that lack of self and one are going to give you
control of our. own national spending and huge democratic deficit that that would cause so that's the big argument to germany saying there's no guarantee unless you also give his control of the budget and then say we're not going to give you control of our budget and interestingly just last week i'm in a fight where germany has decided they don't want to disclose the size of some of their debts so she is sort of saying one thing to others and then not to do the same thing herself. and on the other side of the atlantic the five biggest u.s. banks are drawing up contingency plans in case they fail one of them is j.p. morgan which among other financial institutions was recently downgraded by moody's as max kaiser is stating herbert reveal later today the american giant would have been even lower without government support. there's cufflink the jamie you know the congress. fellow. the one.
that you're not going to downgrade me more than to do categories or i'm going to have to cut off all your junk to go and then i'm going to have to make sure that you don't have the gas to even get home today because i'm jamie cap with a gumbo and you know there's still the same kind of language you're wiretapping when you drop in on the mafia they're like so the the dead fish love bongo is saying that you assumes that you can always get a bid rigging done in a certain period of time or he's going to come over there to soome that you know going to be living much longer. while ecuador takes its time to decide and julian assange just plead for political asylum there are a growing number of calls for the latin american country to say yes more than ten thousand e-mails of support for the whistleblower have been sent to the ecuadorian
embassy and the u.k. and u.s. in a separate show of support thousands have signed a petition a move and initiated by u.s. based civil liberties group just foreign policy are to talk to robert de mint policy director for the organization who initiated the campaign. my sense sense of other people i've talked to this that ecuadorian government officials are sympathetic to their requests they understand the situation the same way we do understand the threat to join the songs from the united states with the threat that sweden once they got custody of assad would hand them over to the united states which would then prosecute him under the very controversial espionage act we don't know everything about what the u.s. government has done a night or might do but we know that a grand jury was impaneled in the united states to investigation of wiki leaks and bring charges we know that bradley manning's attorney believes that his harsh
treatment in u.s. custody was an attempt to get him to. testify against julian assange there is a recently that they have the opportunity to try to get him and u.s. custody they will do so this is totally rational the documented fear. and don't forget just hosting his own injury is serious here on our team and if you have missed the tampa so set how ready eric are still available in a special section of our web site www dot dot com. i mean julian assange. it is true what you read where they expose the world secrets these jackets belong united states government being attacked by the united states strongly condemn. it legally shoot five hundred days now being detained without charge. that hasn't stopped.
the day we're on the quest for relief ideas that can change the world tomorrow. now take a look at some of the stories from around the world and out of control wildfire has destroyed dozens of homes and forced tens of thousands to evacuate the region in the u.s. state of colorado the flames reach parts of an air force academy destroying over a third of its property president barack obama is expected to tour the area friday where heavy smoke can still be seen hollering over in neighborhoods and lighting strikes sparked the wildfires several weeks ago. more than one hundred people are dead after landslides and floods wiped out parts of southern on the dish heavy rains pounded the region for days with forecasters projecting more bad weather it's increasing the possibility of further destruction but officials claim to honor the fifty thousand people are still stranded in the disaster zone with public transportation of entirely cut off to feed. their religious minority who once proudly manned israel's military are now refusing to join the ranks some of the man
or even choosing prison over a national service artist but with we are now explains. a family united in grief but divided in loyalties the tears mixed with feelings of regret and loss and the perpetual question did their loved ones die serving the enemy. i used to see them as march. i see them as victims and my brothers who were victims of the zionist movement and they died fighting the room people yemen's family belongs to israel's drew sect an offshoot of islam of about one hundred fifty thousand people there our being culture and language but are loyal to the jewish state for years this son served proudly in elite israeli units first as volunteers and for the last fifty years as conscripts and although it was the jews who asked to be drafted today a growing number of the youngsters choose prison over army service. years are the
men who were used as a tool to oppress so people the palestinians who want to take part in it anymore. spearheading the changing mood is this man whose two brothers and one uncle died serving in the i.d.f. outraged by many israeli government policies he works as a lawyer defending palestinian prisoners in israeli jails so the question of the ins and we've druze are palestinians and israel can't change that we have always been and will always be palestinians youngins uncle silo was killed while working in the israeli border police in one thousand nine hundred ninety his brother florida fell on christmas eve thirteen years later then tragedy struck again when his older brother named after his fallen uncle was killed on mother's day by his bullets to a side bombing in lebanon. as you know ever since he died i do not celebrate mother's day i do not accept gifts from my remaining children i can't bear it so i
was spoiled and beautiful after he was killed i said no one will go to the army ever again it had been solace try. to serve on the front line is the commander of a combat unit he wanted to play his part fighting for his country but it's that same country that now his brother is making sure no one from the family puts on a uniform to defend it again. if he were here and i'm sure they would have reached the same conclusion. i'm sure that they are proud of me but pride is a feeling lost in the anguish that stalks these walls the shadow of death a reminder of the all too high price this family's paid many israeli jews complain they treated as second class citizens because while it's true they do enjoy some benefits because of the army service like palestinians in israel they suffer inequalities in municipal budgets education and employment policy r t. all right it's time now to check out the latest business news maria what do you
have for us this hour hiring or bella's basically all the markets are heading south including europe which is where will start from the time around basically we saw that are open higher but now it seems that investors don't have much confidence of more european leaders will it leave later when they kick off their summit in brussels i'm always see is the fourth simonson point seven percent the german one percent in the red and basically what we have analysts saying is that there warre that the european leaders of won't take any adequate measures to stem the european debt crisis from getting even worse if we move on and take a look at. rough and markets in fact we still have a story remaining on the europe and that problems aren't enough there's also trouble brewing with its banking sector several banks are under investigation right now for trying to manipulate interest rates at which banks lend to each other and this of course comes after barclays was fined four hundred fifty million dollars
after it's traders law it's to make the bank look more secure during the financial crisis and the problem isn't restricted europe banks in asia and the u.s. are being monitored now as well. and if we continue with the international markets here in russia we can see that there are tracking losses overseas r.t.s. is now setting over one percent my sex is slowly heading into one percent in the red this while prices are and help and i'll get to that in a second but also this is coming after we got news that standard and poor's all graded the country shorts and foreign c. foreign c. credit rating and also said that the outlook is stable but that doesn't seem to be affecting investors today the more focus in on european issues if we move on and take a look at the individual moves on the my six of course naturally a sea of red ball though a little has rebounded slightly this hour but it was so with the m.k. b.p. with all that b.p.'s a russian by now looking for
a partner and it's power generation program it's that's it's a long term priority now and it's willing to put up about three billion dollars but it's looking for a part that's provide the rest when it comes to luke will we see that it's rebound in the ever so slightly a positive territory this hour and you know with the company has allocated two and a half billion dollars for its recently started buyback program and later on it will it plans to put the shares for sale on the hong kong stock exchange bt b. which was the launch but alas i was at least some positive territory now is setting all one percent financials are doing great even this hour moving on let's take a look at oil prices that there haven't been help in the russian economy lately and all the lights we does now if i can negative territory trading under eighty dollars per barrel in fact they have said one fifth of its value since the beginning of the year the brant blend is now trading at ninety two dollars and seventy one the cents moving on let's take a look at asian markets they are now closed and the hang sinus slipped into
negative territory and it's been extending the losses ever since then they still managed to finish on the one and a half percent in the black and that we know that energy and financial shares that particularly well because they managed to close before europe. so investors are mainly tracking the gains we saw on the wall street if we can take a look at those basically in the u.s. markets extended their gains into a second then that's because investors there were reacting to positive data one was housing and the second one was better than expected results and the orders for durable goods there and if we can say a final look at currencies let's see what's happening there with the numbers was that the euro is now losing that against the u.s. dollar and the ruble this time around is losing against both major currencies and this brings up. this edition of business more present in the mall this summer i'm sure you know about surprised by now well it certainly sounds like a mixed bag there but we keep hoping yes basically we're waiting for that east
summit to kick off and that's when we'll really know what investors are feeling we all know about they just want to see action not so much talking about what can we do well fortunately clowes will be removed from the horizon thanks very much indeed marina for the sub date and a quick look at the headlines is coming your way. they've
