u.s. involvement in libya there is also an interesting point that some experts have made with regards to the public perception of the war in libya it's off the headlines american use channels have been focused on congressman winners quite shocked for weeks now and there is fear that certain inertia develops in a public perception with regards to the war in libya inertia which some say could be very dangerous that it's got reporting there now the head of the center for constitutional rights michael ratner says president obama is staking his political career on the war in libya the perspective i have and why didn't the president come to congress and the issue is obviously once a war starts you're in the middle of supporting nato when its whole operation it's much harder to cut off the funding but the president didn't go to congress he's constitutionally required to do what he didn't do it and it's really it's an outrageous constitutional violation so what we're seeing here is not just political posturing we're seeing deep resentments around us fighting so many wars at once i
think people are saying it's too much it's too expensive what are we just the war machine and i think you're seeing a really strong opposition building to the war what's interesting is that i think obama looks like a real who will use it looks like he made a real mistake to not go to congress to get the authority to go into an illegal war that's contrary to the u.s. constitution and contrary to the war powers resolution which is a statute that was passed by congress a number of years ago is a bill are illegal acts and yes by leaving the constitution isn't reachable of sense if and when our congress ever got. the former finance minister and hosni mubarak's ousted egyptian government has reportedly found safe haven in the u.k. that's despite the fact he's been sentenced in absentia to thirty years in jail for corruption profiteering and abusing state assets by a kyra court artist laura m. it looks of why the u.k. sheltering senior figures from the regime at the same time as
a publicly supports the arab spring. when egypt abrupt it into violence at the start of the year the u.k. was among the first to support the uprising out with the old dictatorship and in with a new era of democracy the old guard was swept aside but many running in fear for their lives ran straight to a new life in london and the local egyptian community is horrified angry disappointed some of them calling. because it is a long time now with the british government being allowing people running oil not just from egypt from all over the world boutros ghali is just one the former finance minister instead of beginning a thirty year prison sentence for embezzle meant in egypt he said to be running around london a free man who trusts god he was convicted in absentia of corruption profiteering and abusing state and private assets he's also been ordered to repay more than ten
million dollars and p. andris slaughter has demanded the british government does something about it but is disappointed by the response but expect to see some more action both against the money and other goods that's been extorted from egypt and other. arab countries but also against fugitives from justice in this country and that's what i feel pressing to govern here today but secondly we do have a very strong tradition in this country of upholding international law and i want to see that continue i do want the current government to neglect that you take many think they're already negligent in case an international arrest warrant has reportedly been issued by egypt but critics feel money and connections secure a ticket to freedom in the u.k. which is going to be would not have a problem to getting to the united kingdom for so many reasons and the simplest one of them is the money has got i mean you can get to remain with your money in the
u.k. if your money. meanwhile in egypt people aren't surprised england they say is where corrupt middle eastern officials go to hide he's not a stranger to the west he's very much one of the websites men in egypt was one of the west's men in egypt so that he's found refuge in london is not surprising to anybody the egyptian diaspora in the u.k. is called a million strong benefits here in london to a community to say that people assume angry that's no guarantee took ali will stay safe and the longer he remains the more the u.k. allows itself to be excuse to pull chrissy pledging support for the middle east and pro-democracy movement while katie bring to the polls great great see your avatar team. and there's plenty more still to come on the program here's a quick taste of what's ahead why some of your skeptics think that european
currency has no future and have decided to bury it quite literally. plus we will cat what it takes to work and survive in antarctica one of the most dangerous environments on the planet. it's a state created for millions of jewish people from all over the world to call their home but now growing numbers of israelis are lining up to leave fears over security mean many are opting for american citizenship to meet their expectations of a promised land policy has a story. rachel shites has no reason to like germany she was born there before the second world war and within six years had been expelled and most of her family killed but the irony is she now wants a german passport. and one of the german citizenship to help my children and grandchildren which might be shocking if it wasn't so common in israel today in the last decade some fifty thousand israelis have applied for us citizenship a quarter of a million already have
a second passport it's unlikely that any other country in the world has such a large percentage of new immigrants preparing to leave it's really. the story because it is or was a stubborn to become a shelter for the jewish people now europe becomes the shell of the juice leaving. this is my place the american heart of tel aviv here you'll hear more english than hebrew and you'll be forgiven for thinking that you're in the us and not the promised land most israelis here have a second passport many of them grew up abroad or have a parent who came from another country i have canadian israeli and i would never give up my canadian and probably would give up my israeli the american i wouldn't give up because i have family there and i want to be out to go there any time british passport or european passport is a doorway to opportunities eight years ago the bar was blown up by a suicide bomber three people were killed and fifty injured the bar didn't close down but some say the rush for new passports heated up in very peak of suicide
bombings and there was a feeling of insecurity so yes there was an increase both in immigration and in the demand for passports and that demand has only grown in the last five years israel has been in two wars and many fear another is not far off and the government's policy of settlement expansion has only isolated the country internationally so it's no surprise his leading israeli journalist gideon levy that people are tired of living in a war zone the israeli leadership. basing its leadership on creating. fear frying the comparing against anything and the payoff is a population that feels unsafe with one eye on europe. damn the sun has processed nearly five thousand applications for a second passport in the last ten years that works out at about forty passports a month and he's only one lawyer working in the field afraid of the drop in world war two. the one who are favored were the ones who got the wide berth for
the election is that if you can get a paper that can help you to move out of danger zone then you do it every year more jews leave israel for europe and the skates then the other way around one in five or so if you choose has already returned home and with no israeli palestinian peace talks on the horizon and growing israeli and security about the arab demonstrations on the doorstep this so-called insurance passport is unlikely to lose popularity any time soon point to see r t television as the u.s. is looking for a way out of afghanistan not everyone is happy with president obama's troops withdrawal plan pulling out ten thousand soldiers by the end of the year and twice as many by next summer is considered premature by military commanders but not fast and it scares me for anti-war activists are just military contributors says despite
staying in the country for ten years conventional u.s. war tactics have yielded few tangible results. if anybody was impressed by a barrage of bomb a speech regarding the tempo and scale of u.s. forces withdraw from afghanistan it was afghan president hamid karzai on the one side the afghan leader was a happy camper regarding the american president announcement and on the other side there was so much apprehension regarding their we action from the u.s. military and from afghan vox populi as far as the military effort hanchen is concerned it was mostly limited only to armchair commandos and the u.s. secretary of defense robert gates in fact to the admiral michael mullen opinion represents the bunker mentality and conventional wisdom conventional group thing
the only part of the u.s. military and intelligence community who really have a grasp of the situation less likely to step up to the t.v. cameras and to spill their guts that after ten years all of us uphill battle in afghanistan it turns out that ninety percent of the failure of a conventional force is due to conventional thinking. now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world thousands of anti-government protesters have marched across syria with least fifteen people killed in separate cities after security forces fired on crowds syrian state t.v. says identify gunmen were responsible for the deaths this comes as the e.u. has introduced fresh sanctions against a masters for its crackdown on protesters for more syrian companies and seven new individuals were added to the black list topped by president bashar asad and his
brother. in lebanon as the leader of hezbollah says the group has captured three among its low level members its claims two of them were recruited by the cia although the agents were not considered a serious threat to the movement the u.s. embassy in the country has dismissed the militant group's claims as empty accusations. new york lawmakers have voted to legalize same sex marriage the decision to send hundreds of people to the streets to celebrate what they described as a victory for civil rights and york has become the six american state were gay couples are officially allowed to marry and have families comes after president obama encourage lawmakers to support the rights of sexual minorities. to greece now where people are facing tax rises and fresh cuts to services as e.u. leaders calling politicians to support slashing spending if they want more rescue cash to be handed over the government will vote on
a proposed twenty billion euro budget cut over five years next week if approved it will mean a second bailout of twelve billion euro the money will save the country from defaulting on its debts and up option the prime minister has repeatedly ruled out that many argue that attempts to rescue release are too little too late and that athens economic failure will leave the euro zone dream in tatters. at the skeptics who believe the euro is dead and buried. this is a funeral procession in the center of brussels where the european leaders are meeting to discuss the future of the greek debt and of the eurozone itself they believe the euro can be salvaged but most people including euro skeptics believe that it is impossible and there will be no reserve action of the euro well to me and i think a lot of people it's beginning to collapse around the red sea and bailouts billions of pounds of taxpayers' money especially from the germans putting a lot of this bill and i think the public about enough of it and i've had enough if the leaders of the european union have presented greece with draconian conditions
in order for the country to receive the remainder of its bailout unfortunately for greece they will have to take extreme measures which are incredibly unpopular in the country and that presents a major challenge for the greek government right immediately after it has just been for shuffled the leaders all unanimously wrong again. they'd be wrong about greece from the very start she should never have been allowed to join the euro in the first place she wasn't suited to it they were wrong to buy her out first time wrong drawn by the rope a second time and if the greek parliament on tuesday except this package then this time next year i'll be talking to you i'm up against the bailout so while the european leaders are extremely excited about the fact that the future of the euro could still be resurrected most of the people in europe do not believe so and unfortunately for the european leaders the common europeans believe that the end of the euro is near. their english their reporting there now on the other side of the
atlantic things are looking to promise either bankers are being laid off in huge numbers almost twelve thousand jobs have already been cut since the beginning of the year and there's hardly much sympathy for wall street high flyers among ordinary americans but his financial journalist cuts a watch tell its planes they should be concerned as it hints at a new low for the u.s. economy i think of what happened was there was kind of an idea that was happening that maybe a recovery was on the way because banks were making money again there were huge bonuses being paid out last year and that was an issue there was a lot of backlash and i think that's one of the reasons they actually salaries instead of keeping bonuses the fact now that they're not making money shows that perhaps the economy isn't growing as fast as i thought it was the numbers keep coming out suggesting that jobs on growing across various sectors and i think that if there's not money being made on main straight. kind of effects finance the
financial sector as well and if you're not making money trading then these banks can keep the bankers on. that as business insider because i watched all sharing her opinion on america's stuttering financial plight but what do people in the streets think about these problems the residents talk show host laura harvest find out in new york. all the latest data indicates the global economy is going limp are you personally affected this week let's talk about that have you felt the effects of the bad economy need a better job this economy is not given you a better job here desire to try to go to college and then i can because car my car gas is all expensive at school so expensive so it's on the vicious cycle is really bad but i'm happy because brazil is growing like for me is good so is that kind of
the way it goes when when some countries are hurting other countries can prosper more yeah greece is looking bad sprain is looking bad but i feel like we're on the right. so they're just exaggerated not in greece and spain no no i feel like the reports in the u.s. are i'm actually in the military so i do not feel it at all that's the only perk that i'm one perk my job i've been getting steady paychecks for five years yet i can't see that the american military is going to go out of it if they do any time soon and i guess we have bigger problems to worry about the economy and you had to cut back or we had to cut back even more would show we could take cruises to come to new york this. crucial british first time in new york city today so that doesn't sound like you're hurting that it sounds like you're doing ok we have to cut back on a lot of other things you think that we've seen the bottom of this crisis or are we headed for bread lines and even worse things that we've seen the bottom what is the bottom look like. well it was pretty bad during the great depression is
a bottom that we can compare it to i don't know if we'll get that bad but i don't think we're there yet so do you think we can fix it i'm a global level or do you think it's time countries started looking at themselves first i think we have to fix it on the global level but i think we reach country have to lower their their expectations of. the living standard i think we all have to go down whether or not you've been personally affected the bottom line at the global economy apparently continues to fall lads'. you live from moscow and don't forget to check out our team online and we have a lot more news and eye catching videos there on our website our call but here's what's lined up for you there right now. think al qaida by any other name correspondents found on bin ladin this compound reveals that top terrorist was planning to rebranding his organization admitting to losing a p.r.
war with the west. in and out of moscow graduation bash and with a bang as a boat hosting celebrating teenagers gets smashed into by barge well for more on how disaster was narrowly averted so i had to our website r t dot com and over again to check out our other videos on our new to. the official on. your own phone called talk from the.
lawyer on the. video on demand. and omission street now in the palm of your. question on the dot com has one of the most unpredictable climates in the world but for people who go to antarctica in the name of science dealing with environmental extremes is a daily reality in the latest in a series of special reports ours is showing thomas has witnessed how people survive at the ends of the earth. antarctic storms are known to be fierce sometimes forcing those who have to endure them to take safe harbor and it was pretty bad it was. and. thirty to thirty but not. so it was just rolling around a bit we had to put the. kids. in this in between us. so
we were rolling around pretty violently trying to make a good writer. as. the crew of this ship was able to pull through the tempest and even work with nearby stations to repair their damaged vessel but they were lucky operating in such a remote environment means that replacement parts aren't always available and the workers here have to make do with what they can it is pretty hard to get here good equipment to get here sophisticated equipment so. one challenge is to try to make your big science was a very small amount of equipment because of the hearts and three weather conditions that there is considered one of the most dangerous environments on the planet and because of this operating down here logistically it can be more than a convenience it can be done right deadly during the same storm the crew from that would go on t.v.'s base lost one of their team when a jeep wall down an embankment into a frigid antarctic lake. that was most difficult experience in my career in such
moments i start to sing that good just once is to try is out here. but in antarctica time is a valuable commodity and work crews have limited time to prepare the base for winter after the accident happened we didn't even have time to make a stop which the moment required a stop to think to express compassion we had to go on with our work which we finished at about four am the next day the incident sparked an outpouring of international support from the surrounding bases but in a twist all too appropriate for the harsh realities of working in antarctica the chilean air force plane that was to airlift. the body back to south america suffered an explosion in the left engine as it was taking off the pilots on board of hurting another fatal tragedy by a matter of seconds still the southern continent doesn't provide the opportunity to dwell on the difficulties when it was here under the key thing is all problems as soon as possible or the opportunity will be lost when there is no immediate
response would be cautions and avoid actions that me get when i was hurt for example when the airplane engine field we have avoided doing anything that could have gotten any of us hurt in any way so we don't have to airlift anybody else out of here we have void in your wrists until another airplane arrives when you need a system derived from unfortunate necessity which keeps those living and working in the face of danger and safe as possible in antarctica sean thomas. while he was called the father of the balsamic revolution and though highly debated his role in russia's history cannot be underestimated and a little later retrace lenin's past in moscow. for street leading change the course of the straight and starting off here on red square next to the magnificent moscow kremlin. as we take
