foreign minister later on wednesday. so what exactly will rasmussen be doing. when the relations. between moscow and the current instead. it will be a stroll so far so good gracious but a crucial russian made zero summit that will take place at beyond open the bombay nice pool and then nato will resign to its new strategy for the twenty first century the summit will help to decide on the strategy the strategy also includes relations with russia now the crimea once these strategies blueprint to reflect russia's own security concerns today in particular i'm a bit of fun ross my son will be talking about neda's invitation to take part together in a joint a. defense system in newark the document promises that russia will figure into these new systems but the question mosco wants to know the answer to which more
3:04 am
schools to know is how would be integrated into the system how we would take part in it as an observer or as a knight on hans' to stand in the in type roses from wherever the structure into activation of the system would know that u.s. plans to be able to shoot in eastern europe so close to russia's borders on to the previous administration of the united states had world relations with russia and up to drop a bomb a scrap those last several countries like germany have been saying that russia must be a part of the new show at the moment russia and nato are working on an important document which they dub a joint assessment of the main threats and challenges of the twenty first century they will decide on those rides on the side and where they originate from now another important issue on today's agenda will be again a stop russell says because it is comes just as we talked to
3:05 am
a very important and i'm for saddam to joint oh gracious in afghanistan russian intelligence officers helped carry out an antidote to operate which destroyed several tons of firewood worth over two hundred million tula's. russia's saying that under no circumstances would sun soldiers step ghana stand but it is willing to continue working with nato want to have good agitprop policy most apparently because in afghanistan and up in russia is just still the main issues on today's agenda pull still be many more it seems that these two days told. it will provide kind of a relaxed break icebreaker before the leaders sit down to more serious business in these form so with the rocher and nato working together on so many issues that you mentioned there was so analysts saying about how the future now looks for their relationship. with analysts are saying that of course russia and nato acknowledge that there are fundamental disagreements that stupid to buy that for example
3:06 am
russia's current military doctrine lists made those expansion eastwood's as one of the main threats to its national security but i am also saying that the difference being is that now the two sides seem willing to address those sensitive issues to address them through hope and to think. no tensions have been mounting over georgia's invasion is all the searching all the stupid thousand and eight. and now the primary source of disagreement between nato and russia have been these guest plans to drop an anti missile system into eastern europe so close to russia's borders russia had strongly opposed those plans and it keeps saying that one man's short is another man's sword. the whole of the many disagreements still on the table between the two sides but as there's been a certain floor in relations between washington and moscow nato was so weak spots will be ever sucked in relations between nato and russia just like russia for
3:07 am
example and washington agreed on sanctions against iran they signed the start treaty last year wash agreed on a new militaristic. to get his staff made to also expect stood to benefit from russia's. good attitude to nato he this summit is a success just last night and he's a rival to understand the route on these websites the time is right. in nato russian relations he a message to the russian people he said that nato does not see russia as anything but is also teach you. well today the russian president and the prime minister will be who she. will be pushing for more than just words from nato. a well of course will be covering more of this in full throughout the day here and . thank you for now. to the u.s.
3:08 am
now where president obama's party has lost control of the congress in the midterm elections democrats have managed to retain a majority in the senate but the house of representatives is now in the hands of republicans the congress divided between the two parties it would make it much harder for president obama to go forward with his legislative agenda but many voters have other concerns they're worried about the corporate banqueting of candidates both amounts of campaign cash was poured into these elections a spokesman for the u.s. green party says the runaway spending is detrimental to the country's political system. all the important thing to point out is that that money comes from corporations and corporate money has poisoned our democracy but the real problem is an election system that is rigged against us in several ways there are state laws regarding ballot access that democrats and republicans have passed together to
3:09 am
privilege themselves to privilege their own benefits while hindering the ability of all the parties and independents to participate in the democratic process we need to get those laws overturned and we need to make the us a multi-party democracy the only real democracy is a multi-party democracy. with political difficulties inside forgetting that just nation through former congressman thomas andrews says it will make it even harder for washington to solve its pressing economic problems there are a lot of things that need to be done in this country that are not being done unfortunately the script in this election is is number one we haven't seen the change in the economic prospects of this country change enough with a nine point six percent unemployment rate nationally and in some of these very competitive districts double digit unemployment rates and of course the deficit has continued to increase as the economy has continued to slide so what you have is
3:10 am
people who are taking advantage of that very dire situation and saying it's the politicians in washington who are spending like drunken sailors and causing this economic collapse and we need to change fundamentally the decision makers in washington d.c. the problem that we're going to face is that these candidates who are now being elected who have been running on the basis of this very very high octane rhetoric and all these negative ads are not going to be in a position or feel that they're going to be comfortable compromising and engaging in the kind of give and take that you need in order to make a government work people are anxious they're nervous they want to see a media change what they don't want to see is gridlock and i'm afraid that one of the consequences of this election will be gridlock in washington and i think that will translate into a pox on everyone both parties houses if washington can't step up and get some things get some things done once these elections smoke is cleared here in the
3:11 am
nation's capitol. yes thomas andrews their former congressman talking to us from washington. now still ahead fighting for survival how the hard brazil forced to fend for themselves even if it means breaking the law that's in a few minutes time. well this week has been the bloodiest in iraq for months at least seventy six people have been killed and two hundred wounded in a series of attacks in many sheer neighborhoods in baghdad the blast came just two days after al-qaeda militants took a christian congregation hostage fifty eight dead the total u.s. pullout shelf for the end of next year when iraqis say they feel abandoned the escalating violence and it's forcing some to join the enemy one sunni armed group raised by the u.s. for its help providing security is now falling back into the hands of local warlords and al qaida party's policy. there is still
3:12 am
a force to be reckoned with tens of thousands of sunni muslims angry at the shiite iraqi government known as the sons of iraq four years ago they were run over by american dollars to fight al qaeda one of the strains they live in the neighborhoods in which they keep watch. we did a great service to iraq. working with the terrorists before they join and they give us information about the armed groups. but despite attempts at iraqi government to disarm them in communities like this they continue to patrol the streets because they insist iraqi soldiers just can't keep the peace. and security forces sometimes just turn a blind eye to what's going on there's lots of human rights violations and there aren't enough human rights organizations to defend and protect people from. but all these paramilitary groups upholding the rule of law all some of their activities questionable as suggested in the four hundred thousand iraqi. documents released by
3:13 am
wiki leaks in one account his sons of iraq leader is said to be responsible for the murder of innocent civilians conducting insurgent activities under the guise of a sons of iraq leader extortion and rape. everything has a positive and a negative some leaders use their position for settling troubles stockpiling weapons making money and killing innocent civilians certain but the majority of stability a third woman but that majority also feels abandoned by an america which armed trained and paid them and despite big promises miss than half of the ninety thousand strong force has been given with or absorbed into iraqi security forces where this man is one of the few who has but he's afraid to reveal his identity. to talk after the americans were finished with his group's after iraq or security they no longer supported us especially when the iraqi government charged early theirs
3:14 am
with crimes a lot of the leaders have lost trust in american and iraqi government and they're afraid that's going to working for them so he might face charges and or assassinations why do you iraqi security officials say hundreds of sons of iraq members have returned to al qaeda and that many of the thousands now in the iraqi government paid secretly aid the insurgency for observers like ideal iraqi security forces are running a losing race to keep up to speed to either integrate the groups or to be able to secure iraq without them and i think of how that does not mean that the training given by the u.s. was not complete and it never will be because america wants iraqis to keep giving them and they don't want to rock to build a strong army and that way they can justify staying in the country and making sure iraq is never strong enough to control the region. in army bases like those iraqi federal police are trained in intelligence a tactical side exploitation. medical anything like that thing. patrols connor i
3:15 am
believe is that for many iraqis what the americans left behind was destruction and devastation it will take a lot for them to rebuild the ruins of their lives. armed and dangerous these paramilitary groups struggle to find a place for themselves leading some observers to warn that while they might have been used for short term military gains in the end they could be the roadblocks to peace policy our team baghdad. and then forget we've got much more fuel our web site r.t. dot com including videos blogs forums and a lot more as a look at what's online right now elise take on life in the military a former intelligence specialist in the us army talks about sexual harassment and male domination to be an inside look at the struggle of female fighters. in plus microsoft promises millions of dollars to boost russia's silicon valley and help start ups with investment all that and more at our website that's our team
