12:12 pm
a lot of tough talk i heard experts say that's how mitt romney makes up for a lack of charisma what's interesting about the backbone comment is that mitt romney himself is often characterized as lacking the backbone as he has flip flopped on so many issues like abortion he was for abortion before he was against it or illegal immigration he was for giving them legal status that he was for deporting them mitt romney is flip flops have been widely discussed they've become an endless source of inspiration for comedians this is this is from the tonight show with jay leno it says actually mitt romney and hurricane isaac have something in common they can both change directions at any moment and another comedian goes obama is like you can be whatever you want to be while romney is like i can be whatever you want me to be there are tons of jokes about mitt romney and his backbone issues apparently one way of showing some backbone for him is this kind of

a fraction of what they were but abramovich says that in fact him but his own skin whenever business partners that he was making payments to it as well to keep it they were only for political protection. roof in russian he wanted five point six billion dollars on top of the one point two billion that he received back in two thousand and two from this is being one of the biggest civil trials ever held in british legal history it's been. hundreds of hours and resulted in millions of dollars worth of legal fees so we've heard the results of this case when this time around we may see more cases of this nature here in london. well news of that mega rich a squabble over billions in london might not go down well in the crisis in spain kelley hard to come by everyone in fall is now out of a job according to the latest figures from your a stat one that in a few minutes. also ahead acting in bad faith that we explore the reasons

behind an unprecedented rise of islamic extremism in russia pulling a series of assassinations of moderate muslim clerics. the defeat for justice that's how a u.n. official branded a verdict by an israeli court or that cleared the military of any blame for the death of u.s. activists rachel corrie she was run over by an army bulldozer in two thousand and three mm the twenty three year old was taking part in a protest against the demolition of palestinian homes in gaza but the judge ruled that her death was an accident and that she had brought it on to herself the verdict sparked a wave of concern among human rights groups who feel the case will set a dangerous precedent and allow israel to escape responsibility journalist said tom dale witness cory's death and says he saw the driver killed her on purpose. it's tremendously just pointing out on the facts of what i saw on that day in two thousand and three it's absolutely not possible to characterize what happened as an
12:17 pm
accident in my view so i told the court and as i told the israelis. before the bulldozer driver. a very long drive up. before he got to rachel during which time he must have been able to see for the last. page was visible above the top of the supply just before she was crushed and she climate on a mound of trying to escape so my mind absolutely no doubt that he would have seen a culture in the israeli military impunity for such crimes and that culture impunity is the should it take it fortunately sometimes by the quotes. right check out our t. dot com for more on this and many other stories here's what you can find the why now i mean ever deal was funny girl allegedly falls victim to a new mom accused of trying to frame her blasphemy in the koran burning case.

also online the blog the humor rising is she and scratchy characters from the simpsons are losing captain wild game to russian lawmakers find out how the. attacks against muslim leaders in russia have been on the line recently prompting fears of a steady growth in radicalism and influential she was like children tuesday in dagestan when a female suicide bomber and says a cleric disguised as a pilgrim and blew herself up as some left a double assault on the muslim figures in central russia in july he's a god he's going to also found out where the roots of extremism on the leading. the trip to work that turned to tragedy that our stance had moved he was driving when a series of blasts threw him from his car the man who's been openly against the spread of radical ideas and on the lever survived to find out his deputy was shot dead in another part of town investigators still don't know the exact motivation
12:19 pm
behind the attack but the spotlight is now on the other stun most people here are muslim and that gets mentioned more and more when it comes to the spread of radical islam in russia just some of the local muslim communities are financed by arab families from states where whack a bit and as an official religion the money has to be worked off and they demand their ideology is spread here. like a business is one of the most fundamental branches of islam it's strongly advocated in saudi arabia which backs it up with billions of dollars of support across the muslim world its followers often oppose all other religions sometimes even calling for jihad holy war against them but any other radical movement of us live of course not part of the official religion here but i thought the same different ideas often taught in small mosques hidden from the mainstream. like this one form a boiler house we build into
12:20 pm
a mosque in one of gazans many apartment blocks the aren't it's a mom's denying being radical but admit they do not support their stance of visual branches of islam. we don't divide brother muslims and there can be no radicalism no terrorism these are words only used by prove a kidders who want to discredit islam. we were told here believers are taught to sincerely any quality there are no longer up held in modern society with justice can only be achieved through islam and when someone says islam is the only fair way of life and social order they're called radical or extremist and what's the punishment for stealing the hand is chopped off. not the kind of punishment you'd find in russia's criminal court nevertheless such ideas are reportedly gaining more support among young muslims for some experts it could be partly to blame on how the list of banned extremist literature was thrown together. often in books by
12:21 pm
classical world famous authors are banned or the some of prophet muhammad sayings how can we expect muslims to react and of course the radicals use this to gain influence. of course start their stand is a long way from becoming involved by the worst of radical islam how the state reacts to the spread of extremism is now the wrong moves could only worsen the situation you've got going to all of our guys on that understand. the latest unemployment figures for the euro zone put it at a record eighteen million in july that's more than ten percent the highest jobless rate since one thousand nine hundred ninety five the worst affected countries spain where a quarter of the population is now out of work journalist and author mcgill on szell moraga says said current day konami policy isn't bringing a resolution of the crisis any closer. we haven't really tackled the problem with the eurozone we just have
12:22 pm
a program of our study to for all the different countries to reduce the deficit very certainly not and also is not working. i fling growth which is an even worse problem and we are in the midst of a recession certainly here in spain and very soon in many other european countries so unless we have a clear idea of how to reform the euro no we are not in the indigo troat but it's not just the economic crisis it's also the economic policies. he said it is now performing a very hard agenda of a study to cut some dieties actually biting all sectors of the spanish economy and the problem is that it's not working it's not bringing down the deficit which is the main targets and then as i say he's damaging all the aspects of spain's economy we'll have more on the eurozone crisis next hour including an attempt to tap into the time of well german chancellor angela merkel trying and will be thinking of the billions to prop up the eighty euro zone. and to while the
12:23 pm
politicians are working out a way to keep the single currency afloat back in germany the older dog it's. proving to have more than just sentiment pulled back. the u.k. is sounding the alarm over illegal immigration promising to take tough measures and create a hostile environment for those who don't have the right to stay but before they can be deported they have to be found and that's what the british legal system is having trouble with our for it report. the black hole of the u.k. immigration system easy to guess in but no one's been properly tracking who should be and is going out last month chief inspector john vine revealed just how bad things at the u.k. border agency were guessing when he discovered more than one hundred fifty thousand migrants that have been refused the right to remain in the k. had simply disappeared some people may have left the country some of them most
12:24 pm
still be here i think the key fact was that the agency had no idea how many were actually still in the country and how many had left in the wake of the revelations the government began talking tough immigration minister damian green said warning sent to immigrants would reduce the number who are overstaying their visa the government's made a lot of noise about its efforts to cut immigration but at the total seven hundred billion pound government spending budget just one point nine billion is allocated to the u.k. border agency that's just a third of one percent it's an incredibly small amount and historically underfunded and still cripplingly under-resourced the u.k. border agency is now under pressure and the latest revelations that more than one hundred fifty thousand migrants the missing could just be the tip of the iceberg let me explain where one hundred fifty thousand figure came from it's just a category of people have applied to extend their leave to remain in the u.k. have been refused and then go into a much bigger part
12:25 pm
a million sounds about what the number of people who are here illegally about half which actually immigration lawyer i mean is eighty tells us this the blue agencies don't have any hope of reducing the number of missing migrants they need to radically change their approach i think you need two percent stop promoting a very tough line because the people who absorb the tough line in the media or of course the markets and sells and they don't come forward if you promote a transparent fair line and say we'll take every case individually as they want but these individual groups can stay. most people would come forward this hundred fifty nine would go down instantly and then applications be processed properly instead it seems it will be a need database that will be depended upon to track down those staying in britain illegally expected to launch next month among the companies bidding for the tender is g four s. g four s. the company that created a high profile controlled the c. recently in its third to deliver enough stuff for the olympic games they're seeking

their multi-million pound contract it's a place to aid the cleanup of a catalogue of disasters and mismanagement in the u.k. immigration system so if r.c. london. and i pick a vendor of the past has been brought back to life in russia thousands of actors in historic uniform have recreated the battle of bora deano when russian soldiers for the invasion of napoleon exactly two centuries ago artie's tom barton has more from the front line. battle is raging here at the field of bora deano to the west of moscow the french and the russians have squared up a cannons are blasting the infantry squaring up and the cavalry is preparing to charge and the reenactment of the climactic battle of napoleon's invasion of russia two hundred years before cousens of people have turned out to see this reenactment and reenact as a combo for russia and all the way from france and germany to take part really all
12:27 pm
of this on the scale of a hollywood film all the people here getting just a part of the experience of what it was like to be present at that great historical moment polian marched into russia in one thousand told with what was there a largest army ever assembled he intended to make imperial russia super peace and so become a master of europe but it was here at this point to the west of moscow that the russians decided to stand and fight the result being an enormous long and brutal smorgon much of a battle the french guns pounded the russian lines all day rather like this but the russians failed to break they stood their ground the next day they were forced to retire from the field having lost so many men but polian took moscow but he wasn't able to keep it within two years not only had the polian failed to make imperial

of this multi-billion dollar fortune. than the republicans freshly nominated presidential candidate mitt romney promises the hardline stance against russia but faces criticism for flip flopping a major it seems. more on the upcoming us presidential election and the troubles with america's political system as we talk to author andrew levine. we're sitting down with an author professor of philosophy and currently a senior scholar at the institute for policy studies and your living thank you very much for joining my cute are writing me you contributed to a book it's titled hopeless for rock obama and the politics of illusion what was the illusion in your opinion and how did it get hopeless well obama of
12:32 pm
course campaigned on the idea of hope and the possibility of change but he was skillful in turning himself into something like a rorschach figure which anyone could see whatever they wanted to see the changes were not certainly ruptures with the past. and they dashed at the expectations of virtually every constituency that supported them because they envisioned. transformations of american domestic and foreign policy that were far more far reaching than what obama actually. even attempted let alone achieved as far as foreign policy you're writing that president obama's wars could come back to bite him even the ones he didn't start but which you argue are his by now he pledged to withdraw from iraq and afghanistan he says that's what he is
12:33 pm
doing in what way could they bite him well they could all fall apart. if the united states lost both of those wars even before obama assumed office but the imperative that obama faced which was also the imperative that george bush faced in his final years was not to lose face i'd like you to expend a little bit on afghanistan you argue that ghana stand in particular certainly into a face saving operation for the president how is he handling that. well to the extent that he can develop a consensus in the political class in the united states to get out as soon as possible which seems to be happening not particularly through his own initiatives he will get out but unless that develops is going to happen it's going to have to be a continued presence there of some sort which is going to continue to wreak murder and mayhem and not to achieve any of the official objectives that the united states
12:34 pm
put forward in entering into that conflict in the first place if that explodes then obama will look bad because the united states will look weak and it will look to it will look defeated and that will and that's not a recipe for success for someone who has worked on an electoral campaign aside from the wars already on the u.s. plate you wrote that by far the biggest bullet for president obama to dodge is a war against iran do you think it might actually happen i mean expert even in the was government so crazy idea. well it looks now like obama has dodged that bullet at least until november by basically bye bye bye bye in law for israel with our arms what do you think about the president's approach with regards to iran when he's trying to cater to to everybody in a way to the israelis by saying that he would be ready to go to war and to everybody else by saying that he actually doesn't like the drums of war and there's
12:35 pm
still a chance for diplomacy to work i think the result is that although he may be have succeeded in avoiding the war between now and the election and maybe even afterwards one could hope the rationale for the war remains intact and so the past so the danger that some events could transpire which would lead to which would reignite the danger and maybe even lead to what to look at the eruption of the war remains real and obama hasn't effectively addressed that issue i think this is an instance of a general problem with obama's presidency and it's partly why it's very hard for anyone any of obama's supporters to come up with any reason for. it before supporting him especially for supporting him enthusiastically in the upcoming election other than that the alternative is so much worse. because whatever he's accomplished that on balance be given up
12:36 pm
a plus it's always in cumbered by negatives that are very nearly cancel cancel out the benefits the contenders for the republican nomination they have a pretty scary rhetoric when it comes to foreign affairs everyone minus ron paul. they don't seem to have words political solution in there with capillary right and yet you called president obama the most heart of the lot why well who's the most hawkish of the lot with respect to some issues there not with respect to to all issues his position on afghanistan. is at least momentarily probably more hawkish than that of mitt romney they they. they have all of them said the.
