nine pm thursday night watching r.t. live from moscow very good even if you just joined us money kevin zero in first this hour pakistani police have reportedly used tear gas buttons and fired warning shots to push protesters away from the american embassy in islamabad eight offices is said to have been injured in those clashes more than a thousand voters vented their anger at the u.s. made film the pokes fun that is protests flared up across the muslim world last tuesday after a trailer of the film was translated into arabic and put online american diplomatic missions have come under attack in several countries since after the u.s. ambassador to libya was killed last week here's artie's arabic correspondent you dean from. the police and the security forces has managed to push the protesters back from the entrance of the diplomatic area where they were trying to trade some of them actually managed to come across the barriers which has
been. made. using the containers and. armored barbed wires and also cemented blocks but. the police has asked for some kind of. enforcements from the army. special forces as well as from the rangers they managed to control the situation using tear gas and there were also some injuries among the protesters and the policeman tomorrow is friday the government of pakistan has announced a national. where everything is and holidays and everything is off the protesters will be coming from other cities. in the shower and other some cities nearby. most of them actually belongs to the islamic hardliners political groups as well as political parties and he told me that
tomorrow by all means we will be we will try to break in all the security arrangements enter the diplomatic area and reach the american embassy from that area almost two kilometers away the american embassy is located from the area where the most written are already gathered and centered the government to pakistan and the security forces agencies has already taken very huge and. extremely tough measures to deal with the situations tomorrow there is expectations of cutting off all the networking and center for ones as well as they have spread some kind of enforcement of the police as well as the rangers on the entrance as well as the the places where the in the city which is the. twin city of islamabad in order to. stop the protesters who are coming from the other
cities the situation is grave the there are situations also in other cities pushover. i'm karate the sentiment of the hatred against the american is high in pakistan because there is one reason and one very measure factor here is the pakistan especially in the tribal area the are very angry against the americans where the drawn attacks are occurring in the tribal belt these attacks actually according to the cia and american. officials that they target terrorists also civilians among the pakistani populations bordering afghanistan all these factors actually it is piling up. and has also been directed to from so over a new cartoon of the prophet muhammad in a satirical magazine chants of death to france have been heard in the iranian and afghan capitals but gathered around the french embassy to voice their grievances
paris is closing its diplomatic missions in twenty countries fearing raids of police in the capital of the protest in the city's main mosque live for reaction from the middle east expert peter rare the peter good evening of this french magazines appears to be only adding insult to injury further and raging muslims why would they want to escalate the unrest. well we have to come back to the movie if you can call it movie it's a grade intimidating movie very very insulting nature i watched it it's bordering on pornography so one can understand the reaction and i would go as far as saying it's more of a psyops cia mossad m i five sort of arrangement with the intention of doing exactly what he's doing which is intimidating the people of the middle east the islamic nations and also to create this unrest because when unrest occurs then it's a very close scene between denny rehberg into
a potential conflict which then could lead to you know world war whatever you want to call it so it's very intimidating and one must also add to this the danish cartoons maybe out again there's a lot on you tube. baseball and now these terrible ads they want to put up that go on camera so peter to answer my question why. why well first of all there is an intention by the west and by nato i could quote nato because i know and you've heard me say this many times before i refer to the grand master plan of the new world order which was to take out seven islamic countries over a period to five to ten years this was planned over twenty years ago and reiterated again in the pentagon just after nine eleven we well down the track on that and this is just a step further to cause disruption in the middle east and as the ad that will go on
the new york subway next week will show in any war between the civilized man and quote the savage support the civilized man supports israel he. had been what you expect from structure. well amidst all this self-hate is calling for more protests more attacks on u.s. diplomatic missions worldwide. all muslim protest is a thing that call or is it the case more of the terrorist cells simply preaching to the choir. i think each actually is the the in western forces you know die the crowd as i call it or the s.a.'s or special operators except for and hired assassins mingle with the crowd which all of this if you can recall during the arab spring where a lot of the unrest in the shooting of innocent people were not done by the local government but but done by third parties we we saw this in libya syria said now
a rerun of that but they're not getting their own way because russia is standing alongside them and that show that continues and now of course we've got this massive american joint nato exercise in the gulf remember that nato is a military arm of the new world order not representative of the u.s. or anyone else in your we all agree called the way the war on terror when it started out it was against al qaida now al qaeda flags may raise did say u.s. embassies during the latest protest course the catch here is the u.s. and its allies continue to support al qaida ways the line between friend and foe what happens in the war on terror. while there is no war on terror you know it's an animation there's no al-qaeda there's never been out there was a bin ladin that been lobbying for the cia and he wasn't killed last year like the profession in pakistan he died of natural causes on the fourteenth of december in
a military hospital in pakistan in two thousand and one so this is all of all sure it's just to keep the war on terrorism the streets of europe the streets of america the streets of england perfectly straight there is no islamic terrorists all these so-called terrorist attacks that took been in my up to date inside jobs flanks not . to do with muslims live in the u.k. tonight middle east expert peter rare thanks for your thoughts thank you. thousands protesting the republic of georgia in reaction to leaked footage showing prison guards torturing and raping in made some one of the country's jails the president's now replaced the guards with police officers but i agree demonstrators say they won't back down until everyone responsible for the abuse is brought to account article piskun offs in the georgian capital. these are the largest protests georgia seen in years and i'm not only talking about the thousands of people taking to the streets in the capital tbilisi by process of also happens in many other large towns
across the country many people here are very angry with this video right now and some protesters keenlyside see the reef we have barely addressed georgian authorities others as signs saying concern is not enough addressed and european union official some people claim to have recognized their own relatives. allegedly abused by prison officials and this is a small country and news here really spreads quickly and so does public anger and the people testers are demanding not only the sacking off officials responsible for the interior ministry but also for their illegal prosecution now the videos themselves were leaked by a former employee a staff member of one of the main prisons in georgia not far away from the b.b.c. this man is going in exile in belgium and the video show alleges abuse by the staff members of the inmates not only the beating up of inmates but also literally
torture including sexual abuse and including abuse of minors all of this is happening in light of a major public city campaign promoting the recent report of georgia's going to change the system jails are presenting it with an image of being as transparent as they get inmates even have a voice to get rid of cash to fight corruption so these videos and this whole scandal is definitely a huge blow to this p.r. campaign georgia is preparing for parliamentary elections there's already tension in the air the opposition is being quite active as well and so these videos are a major punch in the piece to georgian authorities the well what's also interesting is that many protesters have. compared these videos to forage from the. prison if we talk about guantanamo there are terror suspects held there while the
people who are in these videos are just in mates. can often tbilisi there is across the latest from georgia for you can also stay up to speed with them as well by following on twitter coming up very soon tonight on r.t.c. to a long lasting mystery britain promises no more delays in the inquest of alexander . the twenty this story. just ahead. of. its perched atop a jaw and
a view from the kremlin stretches as far as the eye can see. for a city to siberia for centuries. it lost its economic importance even before it was bypassed but a chance. but a spiritual. the . scenes like these are a yearly occurrence thousands of. them selves. to commemorate the baptismal jesus. would the matter with it doesn't matter if it's minus thirty it's a siberian tradition i do it myself every year. for everyone to overcome their worst fears it is desired to take the plunge. but that's picture postcard churches
the story of a city built by opportunist explorers political exiles and crafty fur traders. in the fifteen eighties the russians had only just conquered siberia taking it from the muslim. surrounded by enemies the balls to be their stronghold constructed on top of the city but soon enough it became an economic hub siberian fire was the oil of its time bringing in a third of all russia's state revenue but the ball scribbled location head of the says for the russians. to moscow's one of the most popular places to send political dissent is not any people were exiled that once a giant power that was used to incite riots was supposed to set a three hundred ten. the russian heiress across who led a revolt against the eighteen twenty five known as the decembrists worse than hair and drove. there they created a replica high society adopting the latest fashions as soon as they came out or at
least once they made it from paris to siberia but the city also served up some bitter irony for the russian royal family after the bolshevik revolution. this is the office where nicholas the second spend most of the last year of his life his whole family had been exiled here and they were the fairly comfortable existence this was a big house but they weren't allowed to see visitors or go outside themselves was leading the ordinary normal countryside life style they even had thought of a scape but within the year bizarre and his family would be dead. never again its political significance but the streets will always echo with a glorious past that will likely provide a livelihood for some habitants in the future.
you're watching r.t. russia says it expects a probe into the murder of former security service officer alexander litvinenko to be comprehensive hearings have resumed in british courts almost six years after he was allegedly murdered by radiation poisoning in london so first got the story. there's been nearly sixty years since alexander in yankees death and today at a pre inquest review held here in london we heard from the assistant deputy coroner . who apologized and said that there would be no. delay now the inquest through the held today was to set the parameters ahead of the full inquest which is next year just to give you some background to remind you about the details of the case alexander litvinenko died in november two thousand and six after being poisoned with polonium tea ten now the original investigation found that he had tea
with two russians in a central london hotel one of him was identified as andre a little boy now at the time of that original investigation we saw a serious souring of relations between moscow and london after the crown prosecution service asked. the boy to be extradited for questioning now he's since become a russian m.p. and have refused all requests to extradite him speaking outside court today alexandra de witt day said that she hopes that this time around that justice will be done she spoke of the fact that she's very glad that this is taking place in the way that she very much kate said that this time around there will be some answers of course as we said six years on and still no concrete answers into that so everyone's very much going to be hastening for a better outcome this time but of course there are concerns again that this could reignite the tensions between moscow and london david cameron met with president
putin during the olympic games and said that this incident still very much remains a source of tension and stands between britain and russia surf r.t. london show you the next for our next story as well britain's a battle deputy prime minister's released a video apology over why. he broke election pledges which riled the country need clegg's liberal democrats went into coalition with the conservatives given their first taste of power in generations but it's played but tracked on breaking which we should freak out which sees students nine thousand pounds a year to go university let's go live to london for action from leeds the other two of the starters blog george evening mr clegg try to win voters trust is new with this apology after repeatedly reneging on pledges question is is he going to work. yes. this is more than two years after the. increase was passed
and i think clearly recognises that it has been. the biggest thing holding him back and that has caused the station on balance i think he was probably right to apologize because you aren't willing to forgive him what about their minds changed anyway i think what changed their minds those who are willing to give him may have been persuaded by the video. may have been the big question is no no of course the broader picture it still sorry years until the next election and the coalition show you increase in fractures do you think clegg can write this seen as someone who can't really stand up to the tories end of the day will his own party see him as the personification of broken promises. of the moment and less and less clegg shows that he can turn the lib dems fortunes around and i think he probably will be replaced for the next election oh sure that vince cable the business secretary would give the lib dems four points balance in the polls and
given how poorly performing at the moment they're out of around nine or ten percent of base polls that's a significant increase and i think as we get closer to the election. saying well it's changing beat it means we get to keep our seats and let's do that some of the liberal democrats of course claim that if the party got enough seats to form a government of their own in the first place these pledges would. do you really believe that those little cumberland coast. it's interesting that two different lines of the plague and his apology suggest that the party should have made that pledge in the first place because there's no money around it would have been too expensive term events now what song that is saying is we would have kept the pledge but it was a hung parliament. but it can't actually the lib dems haven't got one single message on this and i think until they so they do then. take them seriously give us your thought about nick clegg before the election he was the outsider and the every
man hero that i deal pretty quickly was he out of his depth always he just eat a lot of people want to but it would buy those to. be good at that. yes they are and it was always going to be difficult. because. so long the lib dems had presented themselves as a policy of the left. they frequent what they were government and the labor from the left and so it was always going to be difficult when they use. a right wing conservative party but i don't think it's in south with his handling of the tradition he signed up to the n.h.s. reforms of our reading the bill company had they lost the referendum they've lost the house of lords reform it's a pretty poor record. and i think that's why place in such a difficult position now briefly what's your prognosis for the camera the conservatives nick clegg with the wrong end of losing the coalition partners are actually keeping. yes i think that's why you've seen. the
divisions over house of lords of form off to the reshuffle to try and present a united front legs better the moment is that his best hope of tightening his party's fortunes around. that they can achieve things for the country and government rather than spend. the conservatives try and see the french are. themselves there were made by the hour while i think that play is probably finished and that's the part he will replace in for the next election so why is it disastrous to beat we shall wait to see with interest georgie thanks for your thoughts editor of the a status blog on the line from london that preaches a. quick time check for us twenty two and a half minutes past nine at night tom thanks for being with us here at our business now. and that the business desk is done a bushel it done your president putin's change his stripes you saying that verse to jim rogers kevin after forty six years he says he's no longer getting the current
government now has its investment climate right brushes i've been saying good things for a hundred years but then they were always take everybody's money away and now they seem to be from what i can gather the actions are such that they are actually putting up their own money to invest side by side with outsiders that is a remarkable change from anything that's ever happened in russia before from what everything i can see the russian government now understands how the international economy works and they realize they have to play by the same rules as everybody else. new york's continues poor run off the u.s. job loss claims for less than hope let's check out the figures for you both the dow and the nasdaq almost a third of cent down for the dow just over for the nasdaq rose once again shedding despoiled brussels new bond buying plan but the ruble is getting some joy off miserable week and details are emerging on the piece of his russian interest bill prices also hit six week lows and that's especially hurting energy stocks here the
o.t.s. in particular is on the all wrong and that's the business for the. chip with a very soon next year then you'll know there's a more money inside on the way as well shortly tonight lauren list is couple of can only from washington d.c. here on our. well you know the. syrians technology innovation all these developments around russia we've got this huge you're covered. the sun rises over what seems like and lost forest but here in the new directions quite hundred kilometers north of light of all stalk as in much of the world it's disappearing at a catastrophic rate. mortgages
both illegal and those finding ways to outsmart the system and filing down the forest of the region for them profit goes well beyond the future of our planet and the result could be an ecological crisis the world wildlife fund for nature makes regular trips to help local rangers do what little they can to stop the logging but it's not easy longer set up trucks making them hard to reach an already rough terrain and have mastered ways to jump through legal loopholes this is a nature reserve we're only sanitary logging of disease trees is allowed according to law and not a single berry can be picked but loggers like this use their sanitary logging permit to cut down absolutely healthy trees and sell the profitable timber over the border in china we are on the hunt for illegal loggers and it's not going to be easy to forests. and their chances are slim now for now we can stay in our dreams but as soon as we find solid tracks we'll have to drop our wheels and get out
silently in order not to scare the loggers off alexander someone in ca has been a ranger for over twenty five years he can spend weeks at a time tracking a single group of loggers easier to work when snow falls in autumn it's impossible to find. human tracks and even transport tracks are hard to see after hours of driving we get sent in the right direction by word of mouth you can see that the ground is soft here which means that twelve tractor trails are very fresh which in fact means that we need to be quiet in order to not scare them off as we get closer . this team says they're illegal but have no documents now xander can now call the police to take over his work here is done he's overwhelmingly outnumbered there are too few rangers working in the region and the w w f says the government isn't doing enough to stop it i guess the government now for more of. the. forest and according to.
the guys in the forest to the still. deal doesn't work. no one tries to stop them in just five years the force will be gone they'll sell it all to china what will the people who live afterwards do. it's a question more and more people are aware of today climate change in the safety of our environment as a whole are being discussed around the world and perhaps it's those small steps that might be a start to people living in harmony with nature. good afternoon welcome to capital account i'm lauren lyster here in washington d.c. these are your headlines for wednesday september nineteenth two thousand and twelve simpson bowles it was obama's bipartisan deficit commission in two thousand and ten
but it keeps coming up mitt romney paul ryan joseph biden they've all flung around as a political football in recent speeches or interviews we will talk to a former republican senator a senator and he was the co-chair of the simpson bowles commission alan simpson about the facts and how he proposes to fix the deficit and the august u.s. housing starts number came in below analyst expectations today while mortgage lending declined to its lowest level in sixteen years for two thousand and eleven according to a report from federal regulators also fed ex which is an economic bellwether cut its global growth forecast i could go on the point is this is all more evidence the u.s. economy and any kind of we're covering his slow going at best so how do you sell us deficit reduction as a top priority in this environment plus the u.k. city of bristol launches its own currency and it reportedly is off to a pretty solid start as the u.k.'s largest alternative to sterling we'll talk
alternative currencies and loose change let's get to today's capital account. so simpson bowles in two thousand and ten it was the bipartisan deficit commission president barack obama created whose moment of truth report was a proposal to reduce the us budget deficits by close to four trillion dollars by twenty twenty stabilizing the u.s. debt and then reducing it over the next few decades sacred cows right and left were put on the chopping block included was an overhaul of the tax code so perhaps it's no wonder that it didn't get very far.
