worse actually ordinary disable able to play no part in this sporting event. in a statement the company defends its practices and passes responsibility back to the government department for work and pensions which actually makes the final decision we do not make decisions on people's benefit in thailand or on welfare policy but who continue to make sure the disservice who grew wide is a highly professional and compassionate as it can be. but disability activists say that's just passing the buck and that his sponsorship of the games gives it a whitewash it doesn't deserve they're trying to clean up their image by trying to associate themselves with sports and you know this is so disability i don't keep those activities has really given the other side of my our house call for loans thank you know my call to my team g.b. athletes appeared to highlight the branding on their power olympic accreditation
juror in the opening ceremony but activists say that's not enough when at last in the government expect to cause a round hole for a million people to lose their independent living benefits in the next four years laura smith. all right still ahead for you and the program the u. wasn't real on left embarrassed as more than one hundred nations support iran's atomic program as i expect to believe the country needs it as a repellant against international military aggression. also ackles of war and the black sea munitions dumped in the water seventeen years ago are still threatening towards hotspots. was a few. weeks
today. these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. trying to rule the day. here with our team and more than a hundred nations have you know now that misleads supported iran's nuclear program as long as it's used for peaceful purposes after the nonaligned movement wrapped up and are wrong it amounts to a resulting slap in the face for the u.s. and israel who've been trying to downplay the role of the gathering the latest i.e. a report issued during the summit claimed iran's doubled its nuclear capacity by installing new year rein him in richmond centrifuges though rejected the document saying it was all politically motivated geo political analyst eric draitser thinks
the i.a.e.a. has never been an impartial body. the iranians do it partially for self preservation they also do it for propaganda purposes and to lend themselves clout on the world stage they have the inherent right according to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty that they have the right to have a nuclear program so long as it's for peaceful purposes as is now accepted international law so i think that's the first one the second one of course is the geo political reality that they look around them you look at the map and they see that they are surrounded literally on all sides by the united states or various allies of the united states and the principle is quite clear that the united states will invade nations that do not have the threat of nuclear weapons and the united states does not invade the nations that do have that threat the i am a in many ways is part of what the leader in iran called the overt dictatorship of the united nations that is to say that the i.a.e.a.
is always led by us produced think tank individuals like eldora die or his predecessors who will inevitably execute the agenda of the western powers regardless of whether that contravenes international law. mohammad marandi a professor at the university of technology says iran would have never launched a nuclear program but for international pressure. the iranians are saying that this report came at a sensitive time to sort of distract attention away from this iranian success the nonaligned movement. conference in tehran has been highly successful instead of iran being isolated the united states has become isolated scented opposed senior figures going to tehran and many major world leaders have come to the country in addition the president egypt into iran which is a political earthquake the iranians are producing uranium. enriched uranium at
twenty percent for facilities in tehran which should then produce medical isotopes the fact that the united states and the europeans tried to prevent iran from obtaining the fuel in the past that meant that they were taking the iranian cancer patients hostage the irony here is that the iranians at the beginning had no intention whatsoever to produce twenty percent and then produce nuclear fuel but the americans and the europeans by taking iranian citizens and people hostage forced the iranians to take that step the politicians senior politicians really know that an attack on iran would be devastating for the united states and not only for its economy but for its global position and its credibility. now washington seems reluctant to endorse a strike on iran israel is getting all geared up for it people in tel aviv have been practicing emergency drills which simulate
a missile attacks and those are just possibly are now reports war preparations also move to the ideological arena. this fifteen page emergency brochure is being distributed by the israeli army across the country and it puts a father's smiling face on very serious and grim statistics the crush of hate about what people should do in a state of emergency it says that there is a need for and we hope that family should get together and talk about what to do if this country is in a state of crisis at the same time if it's at anywhere between fifty fifty and three minutes is the time frame that israelis will have from the moment fire when found until there is a state of emergency here and also going to people to go and check that they bomb shelters up to scratch how the pressure doesn't make any mention of any kind of meat on the ranch but certainly it is giving some kind of urgency and there have been those who suggested that it is really the day to day by israeli politicians in
preparation for human and war and certainly for that kind of rhetoric coming out of the israeli political elite some officials have said that we're looking at a civilian counsel from five hundred people in any kind of war that would follow and is waiting to strike on the run parallel to the brochure there is an advert that you might think on his radio television and it shows a way in general research with the israeli army offices and then trying to convince him to give their support in an israeli attack on an enemy state presumably the ranch the general at that stage take a bite of the chocolate hazelnut that sitting in front of him and he said something along the lines of let's go nuts which the israelis misinterpret to mean that he has given them the green light for this operation for the missiles start to fall guy and you have those who want to move situation the israelis so we have been putting up there with that and it does seem as if there is something on the go we
have heard some israeli politicians on record saying that a strike on iran is going to happen soon but the official line to be from the government in terms of. that's gross you know and when we don't know what that it is nothing more than just the general public awareness campaign that people need to know what to do in a day you know. what you. are with our team and still to come this hour in a sense or impunity human rights activists march out of washington and strive to put an end to the probe into the cia's interrogation tactics they say torture is being swept under the rug. the beaches of ukraine's crimea draw thousands of tourists every summer however a recent underwater discovery may compromise the resort's long established reputation artie's alexander ships he finds out how far the authorities will go to keep inconvenient facts from surfacing. locals in the crimea admit that the tourist
season this year may have been better but still we're talking hundreds of thousands of stories from all over the world who have come here for summer holidays but none of them are aware that swimming in the sea here might actually be dangerous this summer dozens of dead dolphins washed up on crimean shores ecologists say this is down to an infection and the actions of local poachers but others have connected these deaths to something more sinister divers recently discovered these barrels containing poisonous gas which were dumped in the sea by the retreating soviet army prior to the nazi invasion of one nine hundred forty one archives suggest one thousand two hundred containers are scattered around the crimean coast we have find and identifiable creations of around five hundred in twenty ten the integrity warranty of these bottles officially expired meaning that starting from twenty eleven these containers can start falling apart. if poisonous substances are released into the sea water the consequences could be on imaginable he breathed gas
can theoretically kill everything within forty kilometers however the state ecological watchdog firmly denies this threat even exists. are divers and specialists from the interior ministry check the bottom of the sea or the board tories tested water for poisonous substances and we found nothing. but this recently declassified documents suggest the opposite in two thousand and four crimea's authorities urged private colleges to check the coastline for threats that is when those containers were found former m.p. oleksandr cool is probably the only politician in ukraine who is making comments on the issue because she says the authorities are deliberately keeping the public in the dark and you ship it with it now that cement talita of local bureaucrats who come in for a year or two now and don't want this problems in their hands meanwhile more and more kids who turn this virus infections from crimea to summer holidays and this is
the. by travel project state of the sea water google says lifting those containers from the bottom of the sea is impossible they will fall apart that's why experts suggest a different solution. there's a technology which allows to see all these containers all for seven hundred years underground succumb for gases are constructed and put above the decaying barrels would solve the problem. it is hard to estimate how much this kind of operation would cost but as long as these barrels are a threat to every black sea country key of would most certainly get international aid should it appeal for help this year's tourist season has finished with no major incidents but some say that next year unless there's urgent political action the region may not be so lucky alexi russia of ski r.t. reporting from crimea in ukraine the two runners in the u.s. presidential race are desperately trying to outwit and outmaneuver one another when
the hearts and minds of americans. but the question is do voters even care r.t.s. resident asks people on the running streets of new york amid of that pre-election fever now in other news the u.s. justice department has ended a long running poll been to the cia's brutal treatment of detainees without filing any charges the last remaining cases involve the killings of two terrorist suspects were tortured to death in the agency's facilities in iraq and afghanistan the investigators say they didn't have enough evidence but some experts believe might have been destroyed on purpose. the cia destroyed some of the tepes that in itself is a criminal action now that it still shouldn't be pursued. would be pursued since then but this has been you know this is the george w.
bush administration's activities been carried on by the obama administration actions as. the lead prosecutor on this and done and was appointed by me who was appointed under george w. bush who was one of the neo cons who. was very put in. islam in the number of respects so we're seeing the same kind of thing going on under those who ordered them and those who covered it up those who ordered the cover up they should be and we should be investigating them all right it's twenty one minutes past the hour here in moscow it's time now for a look at some other stories from around the world. a double suicide bombing near a military base in central afghanistan has claimed at least thirteen lives including nine civilians more than fifty others were also wounded
a bomber on foot was followed by a truck driven by another attacker who's device exploded shortly after afterwards the taliban have already claimed responsibility for the blasts. thousands of protesters have occupied the main highway leading to capital to demand greater freedoms and a democratic government that demonstrators held up banners and flags urging the release of jailed activists leaders. the state which is ruled by a western backed sony dynasty has been hit by an arrest and protests for over a year. and the us the presidential race is heating up with fresh maneuvering two months before the election republican candidate mitt romney has paid a sudden visit to the gulf coast areas hit by hurricane isaac stealing
a march on barack obama he's planning his trip there on monday romney had earlier slammed his rival for his handling of foreign affairs while obama's staff criticized romney for paying little attention to troops in afghanistan the question is how much do americans really care for pre election exchanges artie's resident is in new york to find out. in the u.s. republicans and democrats are holding their national conventions and they hear the media and politicians talk about them that the most important things going on right now so who's watching and what have they seen this week let's talk about that i have you been watching why not because i don't like either one of those guys so you don't watch and you don't vote i meant that no i do but i like voting for the worse . not the worst of the two. but do you need to watch the conventions to be informed
know it's all crap have you been watching it all absolutely none of it why now what i hate the republicans are you going to watch the democratic convention probably not why not i don't need to do you think there is actual information being said sad at the conventions or is that just kind of b.s. but i think it's sort of you know sounds good on camera do you think. these conventions actually do anything. spend money our money our money how do you feel about that i don't like that. i do we get them to stop because you know romney's going to say leave town. the content is not so much the port important as the outside how people perform that that's my first impression that people are choosing the heads not the terms i think most of europeans are true obama and that's it's but you need to watch any of the badness not really want to show us
that i was really i mean congress or us is smarter than that was really awful i'm sure chadwick that's what irritates me is that these people aren't too bad that she's really think we're stupid what are they covering up well that she's a very intelligent lady but i mean she sat there for an hour striking mitt romney so you go well you know americans smarter than that you know that way i mean america needs someone to stand up and take charge i think it let's face it. people that are out for themselves that's it i give up on it but don't they when i mean you're not happy with the way things are going and so the solution you've chosen is to check out doesn't that mean they they went for yes. yes so it seems like most people aren't even watching but if you do decide to tune in and remember to watch it for what it is extremely calculated very expensive showmanship designed to influence the way you think whether or not that works is up to you.
hello and welcome to our team karen taraji with your top stories syria's rebels declare civilian airports are there to target and warn that entry mashaal flights shouldn't stray anywhere near the country's two largest cities. actions speak louder than words of israel as the country launches a massive war propaganda campaign along with emergency drill. plus the sponsor getting attention for all the wrong reasons at the london paralympics anger among disability activists as a firm which they say humiliates them as a backer of their games. next as promised our
interview with jan van wake up. as one of the world's major economic and political powerhouses germany has a lot of influence which it can exert over global situations not to talk with me a little bit more about what germany is doing on the global stage right now i'm joined by. the foreign policy spokesperson for the left body here in germany thanks very much to me. syria is of course the major flash point in the world right now what's germany's view on the situation moment. i would love to know i know what my position is in syria and i think i'm the only side i can take that those people are still peacefully demonstrating for the right for the democratic and human rights. but the german government officially they don't take sides something sure of the.
human rights. repression within the country sure enough but officially they're not taking any other sides with the rebels or whatever but informally and we see it from their involvement you know with a spy ship on the ground there. and they invite syrian petitions for the time thereafter and train them here so officially they seem to take sides but it's unclear to me who they are now you mentioned the training of politicians for a syria without assad how would those people chosen i know i do your i mean this is by it's not the government think tank but it's think think that's close to the government we have here in germany so somebody selected people and i don't know on the basis of which criteria no clue i mean we now have been invited for final discussion. i mean how can you train some people and others not i mean we left party to link in germany we have contacts left politicians some people in
syria i would know what i would pick but obviously these are different people. so these people being brought here to germany because germany sees them as being beneficial for the country in the future sure obviously i mean there's sort of an idea this government has which is not out in the public space i don't know about it but obviously they have an idea who they want to govern the country with that this is ethnically based religiously based politically based i've no no clue i can't figure i can imagine i would think that they would look for people who are not too close to the muslim brothers so to islam for way from from us that it's possible maybe not too critical about turkey but i don't know so is germany setting itself up as the best place to to train politicians for the post. that's what they are doing i mean obviously they are inviting people here and they
call it training for the situation there after. so yes they're training people for government positions and sure they want to have the relationship with the german government and eventually the muslim brotherhood there or another country where they have a huge influence of course in egypt how do you view the situation in that country after their revolution and their transition into a new egypt was very difficult situation for a long time i was afraid that the army would take over. and now as of today it looks better so that they are losing some of the power of the military to the elected president this situation continuous hopefully to future for the situation within egypt what this means for the whole region i mean we have to clash at the border to israel so really have no idea i think it's a very volatile right now for israel for libya syria. and especially
then all the threats from israel against iran so it's too early to say that the revolution in egypt is one is over everything is peaceful and happy happy but it looks better today than four weeks ago. well to move to libya now what's the situation there in your opinion how does a country like libya is going to rebuild itself one of the after months very few people talk about is that many of those who fought in libya now went to the area and are now fighting in mali for example were we have no sort of a civil war you know some really extreme muslim took over the north a part of mali many of those fought before that and worked with weapons everything were trained in the area so we see sort of the fallout of this war and libya in the neighboring country is there a chance that the type of situation we see right now in libya could be repeated in syria as of today the situation for me in syria looks much worse than in libya because i mean the whole environment you know with the middle east conflict. is one
problem the other problem is that right now there seems to be so many other countries who have their own interests within syria supporting one side or the other turkey with a kurdish problem so they are supporting the movement just to prevent the kurds within syria to have their own you know autonomy then you have the gulf states supporting the rebels you have the cia on the ground you have german spy ship something i mean this seems to be the whole world have their interest now with one group or the other syria and that looks to me like a recent piece for a long civil war within syria now we talk about contagion when we're talking about the eurozone crisis is the risk of a war contagion in the wider middle east area if the situation in syria continues contagion is the very risk why the west right now is hesitant to intervene because they know if you go into country like this.
