that are independent of what might be called the us military empire and replace them with pro-u.s. rulers so we have the dichotomy of supporting dictators in countries that are a loyal to the us government and trying to oust dictators that are not loyal to the us the us is committed to the ouster of the assad regime and whatever you hear of the united nations is just designed for the american taxpayer the american voter create the appearance that the u.s. is interested in spreading democracy and freedom when in fact it has a long history of supporting dictatorial regimes in saudi arabia even iran under the shah of iran syria itself don't forget that the cia used the assad regime to torture some of its rendition torture victims and so the the whatever goes on in the un is really ridiculous and senseless the answer of syria has been raised at
the annual un general assembly gathering this week has russia called on those who support the rebels to stop side stepping international law they were a long running question of whether iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons it's also up for him to debate with israel trying to draw up quite literally a case for intervention very important i reports. as world leaders gathered for the annual u.n. general assembly international anger over and islamophobia american film was still blazing in the muslim world addressing the world body u.s. president barack obama condemned the video nonetheless defending the right to free speech as president of our country and commander in chief of our military i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so obama also pledged his support for arab spring nations like egypt and libya however when egypt's new president spoke at the un for the first
time mohamed morsi said free speech will not be accepted as a free pass to insult islam speak only prophet. the obscenities recently released as part of an organized campaign against islamic center is unacceptable and requires a firm stand egypt respects freedom of expression one that is not directed towards one specific religion or culture but the opening of the un general assembly is usually criticized as political theater with a lot of talk this year however there was no talking with u.s. president barack obama the leader of the country hosting the un left immediately after his speech on day one and held no bilateral meetings on day to the eighth and final speech of the always controversial iranian leader saw accusations of corrupt western politics and a subtle tipping of the hot to the occupy wall street movement or are we to believe
that those who spend hundreds of millions of dollars in election campaigns have the interests of the people of the world at their heart in the united states and in europe their voices are not heard even if they constitute ninety nine percent of their societies meanwhile israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu called for a military all tomato on iran over its nuclear program using some surprising methods to illustrate his point this is a bomb this is a fuse a red line should be drawn right here before we iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment. necessary to make a bomb israel stole the show in more ways than one will be. what's more the why only coyote nuclear bomb. do you really good of her tandem are you going to pretend that you don't know what a nuclear bomb well it's like. to hear israel. run downstairs and look in the
basement on another us show russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov recalled another time problems were used at the u.n. executive to garner support for military intervention as you see. my good friend colin powell colin powell was shaking this violet's some white powder in the security council. then there you can see what they're doing us unless we also writes the use of force against iraq we would be on their own thoughts a few story. and the turned out to be that there was no anthrax and that while today russia and the u.s. remain divided over how to end the civil war in syria moscow says some countries supporting the opposition are turning a blind eye to terrorist attacks committed by the rebels and you say push syria even deeper into the base of bloody internet strife the militarization of the
conflict is continuing with a cool of an open intervention russia says confidence in the un has also been compromised by unilateral actions taken against countries like cuba iran and now syria stero consequences to unilateral sanctions imposed by state states in the un to advance their political goals we have no doubt that such sanctions when they are applied next territorially weaken the unity of the international community and undermine the effectiveness of its efforts the un was originally founded as an arena for all parties to respectfully discuss issues and diplomatically collaborate on solutions as the sixty seventh year of the general assembly begins many are left wondering why at least one country has cemented a pattern of acting alone or enough r.t. new york. taking a look at some of the stories making todays world news this hour
a series of bomb attacks targeting shia communities has killed at least twenty six people in iraq some sixty eight more were injured in explosions in several cities from the country south to the mainly shiite north the deadliest blasts were intolerably where eight people died in back to back compliments no one has yet admitted the attorney. libyan authorities have encouraged people to hand over their weapons and a bit to boost security amnesty areas have already been set up in the country's capital and the second largest city in the gall city this comes after a wave of rallies across the country assault demand the introduction of a national police force and army libya remains on stable after last year's revolt with the government on able to contain powerful militias. a member of nato staff and a civilian contractor have been killed in eastern afghanistan in an apparent green on blue attack it's the latest such assault in the country which taliban militants
claim is part of there and telling nato tactics two thousand u.s. military personnel that died in afghanistan to become pleat withdrawal of nato troops is due by the end of two thousand and fourteen the gloves are off in georgia head of monday's parliamentary election in a few minutes we report on the opposition that setting out to mount a tough challenge to the country's ruling party after holding a hundred thousand strong march. also the remote rocks now being fought over by three. moving asia's biggest power players more on this week's developments in the south china sea after a short break. good runs deep to the russian so it is prudent to ensure a. for songs and poems and as the country's main north south artery and decades ago
schumann ingenuity connected it to the dawn river to the west the vocal dawn canal is an engineering marvel within a day a vessel can pass the canals thirteen blocks ten million tons of shipping does so every year. another concrete giant is this finished fifty years ago it's the biggest hydroelectric plant in europe it powers the local city of volgograd and sends lots more electricity to moscow hydroelectric plant behind me is a potent example of how much the volga can provide but harnessing the revel like this isn't without its cost. fishermen have been watching fish stocks for years they see the slow damage the downing of the river has done especially to russia's prized sturgeon the source of caviar. the hydroelectric plant has done significant damage because it's stocked fish swimming up river to their spawning grounds. within a year all these houses would have gone fallen into the river depending on how many
of the hydroelectric plants turbines are on the water level can change suddenly and dramatically too suddenly for the banks to absorb. control of the river flow by the plant has made building on the shoulders floodplain more attractive serious floods are less likely but the water that is put into the drains is taken away from the fish that need it now but last the voice of the voters of color jay might start being heard. the first time in fifty years the rules will contain a point on maintaining biodiversity in the river we still have a chance to bring the volga back to life. meaning that the mighty volga is treated with the respect it deserves.
hello and welcome back you're watching our team a lot from moscow with me parents are all chain while julian assange has managed to address world leaders in new york despite still being holed up in ecuador's embassy in london it's been sheltering the wiki leaks editor for months during which britain stressing the latin american nation must hand over songs to swedish authorities here's our teeth sorry for. being holed up. in the way that. we. find stuff like. you assume ministration is in trying to erect. a national regime of secrecy a national regime. a regime where you need government employees revealing sensitive information to a media organization can be sentenced to death life imprisonment or not he spoke
knowingly about his little bit about the implications that this kid if the us continue along this cools the song the founder of wiki leaks wanted in sweden questioning the sexual assault allegations some of the songs critics say. and his legal team claiming it. will be tempting in some way to have a justice not in the thinking. about the fact that they want the questioning to go ahead they're ready to. say they want to hear whether. the document that came in the u.s. . even there are any clues that wiki leaks the people he was with the leak.
that we. like. and the overall quote detail. that the u.s. government said well probably didn't know about. later on r.t.i. wiki leaks spokesman tells us more about freedom of speech and the future of whistleblowers. this is making the case who we see and documents that have sources that show that that communicating with we can be some provided we can use with information and consider is considered communicating with the enemy aiding the enemy. is the enemy. what is we can use it's a platform for whistle blower to get information out to the public we are doing what any media organization should be doing we are doing journalism and the
implication is that journalism getting the truth out there is considered. an act of an enemy that is the obviously what is the into the intention of the obama administration it is who would deter people from not just cooperating with we can leaks but the mainstream media as will so this is a very serious cornerstone for the mainstream media which has to wake up as well and you know the coffee this is getting very serious and in this situation. georgia has seen some of its biggest opposition rallies to date with over one hundred thousand people target out for pre-election demos in the capital and the country's second largest city on saturday georgians well choose their next parliament tomorrow anti-government mood has been fueled by the recent prison torture scandal which sparked mass protests and international condemnation georgian
authorities are also accused of high level corruption and cracking down on activists who speak out against the government the opposition blames the police say of using dirty tricks to retain its image and as you corpuscle over parts there are claims that some where at the expense of georgia's northern neighbor. if we aren't going to receive alleged police not receive georgia's bellew with the russians we probably will begin. eleven suspected terrorists did he she says the armed men were chechens crossed into georgian territory and kidnapped around two locals if you'll be caught by police the news spreads quickly but not everyone is buying it the only this was all organized by georgian security services. the lack of transparency and details about the incident has led many to believe the whole so-called anti terror operation was a complete hoax georgian authorities have been very successful in creating an image
of a modern western civilized state a beacon of freedom if george w. bush once called it but in this case the opposition's accusations are fighting supporters on the other side of the caucasus meet his very own them of he spent two decades fighting on the side of chechen militants against moscow and officially representing them in georgia he also has doubts about what really happened at this latest water operation. first of all their weapons were american made second none of them fired off a single shot that's not so the uniforms of the so-called fighters were brand new that was saakashvili plan he sent his guys across the border into russia and then have them shot by the georgian police this was a setup just to frame russia no one will ever be able to prove anything of course. he said he cleans the beaches for dijon with terrorists began in the ninety's when he personally helped chechen separatists by delivering weapons and aid from
georgian. surely the pankisi gorge in georgia is really close to chechnya it takes just ten minutes to fly across the border by helicopter so we helped our warriors from georgian territory from the gorge we delivered weapons money to the injured and then send them all around the world for treatment and all with the help of georgian security services and it was god sent us glad we got the weapons from the depository of the georgian terrace center our guys came there with cash were able to choose whichever weapons they wanted and. album of says these interesting didn't diminish even after president saakashvili came to power a man often bridge street as an envoy of democracy. they. everything is still controlled by the anti terror center. dean and the gym marks are in its hands they are their people any chechen who lives in georgia and wants to study in an islamic
country to go through the anti terror center to take you to tbilisi you go to this center meet with some official and they won't let you go into you say yes to us free to work and then a good album of claims that his knowledge almost cost him his life following an assassination attempt he was allowed to return to church. from russian authorities after he asked for forgiveness now he plans to reveal everything he knows you want the school of art the rosalie the children republic his trade relations between china and japan grew this week their dispute revolves around a chain of islands in the east china sea which both countries the us there are and as tom barr reports other countries are now also staking a claim the dispute between japan and china over the islands in the east china sea has now expanded to include taiwan it all began when a taiwanese flotilla of fishing boats escorted by coast guard vessels set off to
try and reinforce their claim to the islands however met when they met with japanese coast guard vessel something of a giant water fight ensued. in the areas surrounding the disputed islands the japanese coast guard vessels use their water cannon on the taiwanese fishing boats the thai were nice coast guard vessels then turned their water cannon on the japanese ships a few hours after it all started the taiwanese vessels withdrew but all of this was watched by nearby chinese vessels that were waiting outside of the disputed waters the islands themselves are a small group of unpopulated rocky outcrops attention really began after it was thought that there may be large mineral resources in the surrounding waters japan has been holding meetings with china to try and calm that is spewed this latest tension began after japan bought the islands from a private owner and nationalize them that caused huge protests in
a number of chinese cities china has made it clear that that japan should be under no illusion in the dispute and that it will accept no infringement it says of what it considers its territorial integrity taiwan japan and china all claim the islands as their own and there are other players including the u.s. that have security interests in the region domestic politics in both china and japan are due to undergo large changes in the coming months and that puts pressure on the leaders there to show that they are not backing down all of which has led to fears that this dispute over these small islands could lead to some very big consequences. investigative journalist james choir better than some world powers are interested in stoking the conflict. a sense of believe this is about the
potential oil and gas reserves that have been estimated to be in that area but i think we have to understand this entire dispute not in terms of the islands themselves this is being played up as a as a nationalist sentiment nationalist fervor it has the potential to to get bigger it will see if it does broaden out into the region we see the u.s. starting its asia pacific pivot so i think it actually has an interest in increasing tensions between japan and china because that makes japan ever more eager to accept it with the american military presence which up until now there's been quite strong protest against but now we see them renewing military and joint military exercises in guam etc so so it is increasing the japanese reliance on the american security blanket says that as it were and i think that's that plays into american interest coming up we continue to examine the rise of extremism in europe in our two special report.
