markets why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy because a report on our key. to the. a major u.s. bank allegedly loses a billion dollar investment by libya putting the financial woes of the american and libyan people in the same boat. we think what's happening here is a shift towards a ground operation russia's foreign minister slams nato deployment of helicopters off the make it better first targets in libya. a huge part of which destroyed an ammunition dump in central russia has been put out sleeving over eighty people injured. and hundreds of people don through the jefferson memorial in washington d.c. claiming that holding their first amendment rights similar action last week led to
apply the rest. international news and comment live from our studios here in central moscow this is . libya could be another name on the list of alleged victims of the giant u.s. investment bank goldman sachs the bank is currently being investigated by the american government for its part in the two thousand and eight financial crisis it supposedly lost the one billion dollars investment they made by tripoli three years ago i was in the arena port now reports from new york but bankers are hardly concerned. and long before the u.s. led airstrikes against libya's moammar gadhafi they dictate or end one of america's most profitable banks first financial friends in two thousand and eight according to the wall street journal goldman sachs first could be the chance of becoming a huge show. holder only after losing ninety eight percent of libya's one point
three billion dollars sovereign wealth funds in just a few months they have lost a staggering percentage i don't know how you lose ninety eight percent of something it was a bet on options on european banks and energy companies stocks plunged shortly thereafter but in any case clearly they saw a goldmine in khadafi when the fund controlled by colonel qadhafi nearly empty goldman ponied up off first to recruit losses according to the journal libya would get five billion dollars worth of gold and shares in return for making a three point seven billion dollar investment in the securities firm libya agreed to by the bank's debt with the promise of a lucrative annual six percent return for twenty years gave me knew it was about to head into a nosedive and there they were selling them selling these libyans
a piece of junk which was themselves libyan sovereign wealth fund officials are reportedly accusing goldman of misrepresenting investment deals and making trades without proper authorization but others proudly admit playing fast and loose with gadhafi is money and eric in real estate and reality show tycoon donald trump those that he lied to and the libyan leader in the past i read to them a piece of land he paid me well if you are now you could be spirited away and it was worth it all year after two years and i don't get a lot of news the way and that's why we should be doing more sent over new jobs we want to use the word strawberry screwed up now critics say the libyan people stand to get screwed by wall street trance comments were very interesting in terms of the attitude that american executives and american officials have towards other countries their dear to be screwed and he said it publicly and he advocated it as a policy. and he did it personally due to frozen assets and financial sanctions
imposed by the us europe and the united nations libya's sovereign wealth fund arguably could be forgotten about unless one of the world's top financial firms is held accountable americans have been demanding that for years without any success came to pass the achievement the american people and the american government can't or won't achieve i don't think so i think that they're going to get away with this you know big billion dollar boondoggle with with libya just as they've done it with america goldman sachs is currently being investigated for playing a major role in the two thousand eight. millions of their jobs homes and life savings while a military conflict currently provides us libya uniting citizens of both countries is the financial gain wall street has made at their expense or in upper nile artsy
new york. well florida based investment banker bernie goldman says that the bank's operations with libya could be a part of a wider column between you two percent of the world oil supply you become a target is the sovereign nation firms have been the primary target of some of the biggest investment banks worldwide but the obama administration has created a criminal investigation it is now getting information our sources tell us they have good evidence of the dacres were told that the materials they were selling in the sovereign nation phones were truly bad assets they knew they were bad assets and they were moving them or their accounts and putting them on the accounts of libya norway and iceland and that's a crime. and as the list of u.s. banks troubles gets bigger so does the country's deficit and the ability of the debt ceiling being raised becomes more of
a reality experts say the move could only mean more economic pain for the country r t has a report on this in just a few minutes from now. but first nato helicopters have hit their first targets in libya russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has denounced the deployment as a step towards a ground operation. we expressed our opinion over to circulation of the military operation we think what's happening is a shift towards a ground operation this would be very regretful because the violations of the security council resolution already taking place are more than enough to think about the attitudes towards humans decisions. british and french helicopters attacked calligraphic forces near the port city of brega it was a ploy just days after nato extended its intervention for another three months recent weeks have seen intensified allied airstrikes against the libyan army. there are indications that the low can start which will produce a genuine libyan political process if you simply keep dictating things from the
outside by supporting the rebels by saying that this person has to go all this person has to stay bringing somebody in announcing the son a particular individual is legitimate the other is knowledgeable and then you have to adopt the country just go ahead on adopt the country do not go to iraq in libya we don't believe as a friend was trying to say that as foreign capitals can determine who is going to lead the country and what has happened going to happen there there has to be a political process so our idea is that there must be a ceasefire just with that thought is possible because it can produce a situation where civilians are not going to suffer any longer. and u.k. foreign secretary has made a surprise visit to benghazi in libya expressing support for the rebels journalist and author actually returns he says the fact that william hague is sitting down with one of the sides accused of war crimes is a disaster. so deliberate the attempts at stopping any type of seized peace process
all we now know is that william hague the british foreign secretary is seated there and he is in with the rebels the u.n. panel in the past few days or said that there are war crimes being committed by some of the rebels some of the british foreign secretary if it ever came to an international criminal court decision i'm sure he'll be being subpoenaed and it's looking more and more like a disaster with only russia and china holding any cards to play or to go with what the u.s. congress has slammed president obama for launching the operation in libya without its consent but will this change and i think. we can predict that it's really going to have very little effect. talk to ramsey prove he's editor of palestine chronicle dot com you can check out our website r.t. dot com for the full interview. now let's go to washington d.c. where hundreds of people have been dancing at the jefferson memorial claiming they're exercising their first amendment rights last week america adam kokesh and
four others were arrested by the police for dancing at the same spot. has more now from our d.c. bureau. this is what i saw the crowd was dispersed sort of pushed out of the jefferson memorial but dozens of people really risked being arrested for just peacefully dancing at the memorial and everyone had this fear that it could happen at any time to many it sounded like a joke because freedom is you know the first amendment of the u.s. constitution explicitly to protect freedom of assembly and actions that symbolically express a view point if those actions are not harming anybody and one could think what could be more harmless than dancing people who took part in this dance for freedom flashmob say they do want to remind of their constitutional rights which they claim are being breached recently there was a court decision specifically regarding the thomas jefferson memorial that prohibited dancing there that's what triggered the movement if you will last week a small group of people protested the decision we dislike of the new memorial we
were brutally rastignac one of them was an iraq war veteran civil rights activist adam copus who is a recently also has his own show on our t.v. just a week later thousands of people after the arrest in different cities by the way not only washington d.c. joined him and others to say no to police brutality take a listen. to everything else so for all the other oil reasons or for going to the trashing of the economy after everybody who suffered in this country under the good will of the police treats it's going to dancing that's the only freedom we have local going to come in and do it for people who say oh we believe it really really brings high ideals and then when it comes down to something like this in the summer divided on it sometimes real obviously for a lot of people this dance flash mob has turned into something very symbolic especially here in washington at the thomas jefferson memorial he is one of america's most we've year of founding fathers jefferson envisioned america as a great quote and part of liberty liberty which as if you were saying today americans are getting further away from with every other court decision it's not
just about dancing in a public place of course there's a lot more serious stuff many here are talking about the post nine eleven patriot act that. curtailed many of their cars they can fold freedoms and our very new elite introduce laws as well so this is their thing flash mob is just one symbolic walk in the public eye over what they see is why lation of their right. and you can also get to watch last week's clashes with police and the arrests that followed which were described as too aggressive and unconstitutional clips from facebook dot com slash two minutes. more news today violence is once again flared up. and these are the images go girls and seeing from the streets of canada. showing corporations are rooted a.
the russian military says a massive fire at an ammunition that's been raging for over twenty four hours has been put out but the number injured in the accident continues to rise and currently stands at eighty six dozens of buildings have been destroyed and almost thirty thousand people were forced to leave their homes piece of it brings us more now from the region. thousands forced to flee from their homes as a fireball turns the night sky orange. the fire that broke out at the military munitions depo on thursday night left the local population many of whom are elderly terrified and fleeing in their thousands. suddenly there was a big and their windows smashed i thought it would be thundering. and bouncing up and down and went all through the night like that i'm spraying are numbered. might
help me stay alive but. two elderly people suffered heart attacks believed to have been brought on by shock and died many of the old couldn't escape so here in whatever shelter was available to them. they mainly elders who hid in basements and were evacuated by risky teams we do and took over and moved them to hospitals and evacuation centers no one understood what was going on so everybody took cover as best as they could helicopters and other aircraft were used to douse the flames from above while bomb disposal experts removed any damage ordinance authorities say the danger has passed that it will merely mystically myriad behind the ammunition warehouse the station itself has cleaned up to make sure that the sea for the people living around here all the residents will be able to return to their homes by the end of would be. a local shop in several houses were looted in the chaos.

still there are many steps to be taken before membership and some experts say it's not always this complicated to join the group. those conditions don't need to be met if the e.u. likes you. remain you who have beautiful and very obvious strategic reasons and didn't need any particular conditions at all in so doing the real reason that serbia is outside the e.u. club as it were is that the serbian secession is group province of course a lot has not been resolved that's a situation that still needs to be resolved and the e.u. prefers serbia to negotiate regarding that situation while on its knees which is a position that is the public is very familiar with those original figures eight thousand came out ahead of out from these are bigger which islam is side they were prepared in advance. thousands of people were hidden soldiers and drafted back into the. just forces without their families even being informed so there is certainly a great deal of exaggeration in the figure the tribunal is so sure that justify his
existence it was set up by madeleine albright's to point an accusing finger at the serbs and to hide the existence of the joint criminal conspiracy to destroy the state the sort of forms the state of yugoslavia over half of the half of the adult population of serbia died some form get emails of elation of soviet guides of yugoslavia which was destroyed by the west over ours and their hatred of you is there's a plane an entirely different picture it's the one tunnel most of europe where people are held for years without trial waiting for trial when they're when their verdict is known in advance in fact is even worse than the going to find a way of europe because at least they're in the ground some abate the judges know what the rules are at the hague tribunal this kind group court the rules are worked out as they go along and always at the expense of the serbs. rob lyons the deputy editor of the online magazine spight says what's going on in the hague now is a show trial with the outcome already set in stone but i don't think there's
anything. about this trial at all about the whole process. or what's what's happening in. the code the outcomes have been but it's been that already it's a bit of a show trial i think. as a result i think it's very much about bolstering the west's position and making the west look like it's a free defender of justice and the largest has already been set up by the bad guy and this i'm not. allowed to choose our wonderful human being but. crimes on all sides in that war and to pick out one side was worse than the other is a bit peculiar oh it was a. they were opportunist nationalist politicians on all sides and some fairly brutal people behind them as well and contributors to the r t four and some are saying the hague tribunal should be dissolved in their view it has no legal grounds

moody's ratings agencies warned the us it may downgrade its credit rating if washington doesn't make progress on failing with its debt as increased regulation the u.s. will have to raise its debt ceiling which has already reached the mid ninety's but economist peter schiff believes that will only make a bad situation worse but we have to do is stop borrowing all this money you mentioned earlier that one of the problems is that we have to raise the debt ceiling that's one of the only good things out there that debt ceiling is still there unfortunately they're going to raise it we're going to go deeper into debt which means bigger problems and this is not you know the economists are describing this is the stock it's not it's quicksand and economists who think this is a stock that these are the same people who want to do two thousand and seven so the u.s. . tommy had never been in better shape he didn't see this crisis coming right never
understood the problems of the u.s. economy and they still don't understand they've been bad government stimulus made the problems better it didn't mean allow the problems to get worse and the number of people finding a new job in america is at its lowest level in eight months and a very a new york resident has hit the streets this time finding out if it's worth paying for an education when there are no jobs at the end of the line. with today's tough job market is there worth spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for college education this week let's talk about that how much does college cost in poland college for free. any dave it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars so. it's a problem. and and young people from all over the world are bought off on it and it needs to start now i'm not going to say that the government
needs to pay for it but i think young people need to wake up and look around them and say you know it's not an accident that bill gates was so soft maybe if kids took two or three years before they went to school and had a little life experience and then had some purpose to their study might make more sense. but you still be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars even at that point i don't think so i live on one year of accounting i took undergraduate. i've earned millions of dollars on that one course which i only paid two hundred dollars for i own a business i hire the best people i can get if you're not if you have a college if you don't have a college education don't even come to my office and apply to what you where did you go to college i went to college in texas and you use what you learn every day absolutely do you think it depends on what field you're and possibly but let me tell you this without an education you just have a whole lot tougher time in life but we're also told that we all have to go otherwise we won't succeed. that's true that's true but. i chose not to go to
beauty as you call about. need to go known to be way out of range if you go to the tops. i mean the rich people can afford it why is that don't do you think that that would let us back over the long run in terms of what we can produce. i think if you look around you economy and the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is falling away people are seeing the real estate in the data new economy i think the american people are suffering the bottom line is that most employers still think a college education is important and ultimately it's their opinion right or wrong on that matter. and i let's take a quick look at other news making headlines across the world in our world they say
top al qaeda militant leader has reportedly been killed in a u.s. drone strike in pakistan the u.s. a place to five million dollars bounty on the head of. he's accused of masterminding attacks in afghanistan pakistan and india pakistan officials said because i was among nine jihadists killed in the strike. times government troops reportedly reached the rest of syrian city of hama activists say security forces of foreign protesters at least six day comes a day after dozens were killed in a violent crackdown on a massive anti-government demonstration internet services have been restored after being caught in a position from posting videos of clashes and. high radiation levels have been observed in the crippled fukushima nuclear plant in japan the operator says it's the most innovative radiation that will ever detected in the air inside the number one reactor steam is also being coming from that part of the plant on the high levels with the ticket a remote controlled robot. when our city life can take its toll working hard and playing hard can certainly do. the treason artie's moscow up this is the best
