suicide the have been renewed kohls in russia to bring back the death penalty to punish those responsible for the terror attacks go to r.t. dot com to find out whether the initiative received much the poll. the sectarian slaughter in the central african republic has reached a vicious new level according to the un reports are emerging even children are being lynched by marauding morbus and that's despite france's military intervention as artie's maria phenomena reports. less than a year after french moods marched into mali france again is fighting in another of its former colonies in africa. that's a church or the situation in the central african republic is alarming if not frightening that your paris received a green light from the un security council to use military force to restore order after deadly ethnic russians in the country escalated. i have decided to act
immediately or more precisely this very evening this eight hundred french soldiers were sent to the violence torn country to join the six hundred already deployed there. a force that france has no where the most of them to save human lives and months later and lives are still being lost on all sides. france's sixteen hundred strong force appeared and mabel to put an end to ethnic tensions dating back to the central african republic independence in one thousand nine hundred sixty four through france a former monopoly is responsible for helping to create in africa a number of totally artificial states like ca are and now they jump in with this operation which is stupid militarily economically and politically dangerous scandalous from a human perspective and lead to zero results that zero results if we are talking
bringing stability to the country but alan krueger been president of france is new and to capitalist party believes there is more to paris's decision to intervene your fourth france used the pretext of human rights and in fact it was aimed at protecting its economic interests in the c.a.r. is rich in resources but it mostly has value due to its strategic location in the center of a vast and rich area so it's eventually all about dominating and controlling the entire region. but i. others see the african countries central location on the continent as the key to fulfill the stated goals of the french military mission of securing the entire region. through me france and other european countries are threatened by islamic radical and terrorist groups that are now decentralized and developed in the belt from the mercian teenie a coast to somalia. and french troops deter these dangerous forces and also prevent
pirates and drug traffickers from uniting. but would both critics and advocates of the french military operation in the central african republic equally agree on is that no matter what the intentions are behind france's authorities' decision to get involved it's the french people footing the bill that holds. the operation only became needed as there was a failure of diplomacy and politics in this ga are a failure of the un the african union economic community of central african states and the you but who pays for this pricey campaign french taxpayers. surveys show less than half of the french population supports a country's latest mature expedition to africa pushed forward by france's least popular president in polling history well more than a thousand french soldiers are now in the central african republic here in paris the intervention into the country's former colony still gets
a mixed reaction no one's really sure if it's an act of goodwill or a calculated move to benefit france. residents not see reporting from paris. from institute of oriental languages and civilizations says there's particular significance in when france decided to act. first of all the central africa was them under french influence since they became independent not through the french army and soon central africa second point is is that former central african president was kicked out from power work just at the moment when he signed agreement with chinese. oil companies i've done time france didn't react and it is very important to serve chinese economy is growing economy and in an economy much more active in africa.
all western economies and i think that's one of the basic reason of conflicts in africa it's to compete issues between western powers and china. so to come in the program those that fear south africa is on the edge of an icky we look at the white minority families preparing genocide contingency plans saying the death of anti apartheid icon nelson mandela race motivated slaughter could start at any moment. two foreign teachers have reportedly been found dead in libya near a major oil and gas complex not far from tripoli the bodies of a british man and a new zealand woman were discovered right next to their luggage that was untouched and it raised questions over the possible motive for the violence lawrence freeman is the editor of executive intelligence review magazine and he believes it's a further sign of al qaeda control in the country. libya doesn't really exist
as a country right now it is made up of all kinds of militias and on groups with very significant control by al qaeda so it's unclear who are doing great he's doing what except that we know the countries in the state of lawlessness where you know the west coast the story of libya the nato intervention their failure they were for magical you know overthrowing khadafi and carrying out regime change and trying to tell a little fraying ok they're bringing democracy and that now al qaeda runs the country libyan people have a right to have a country and not be controlled by these outside forces mean the al-qaeda which is being backed by the major western powers up to this point. we're going to take a short break now but when we're back a different side to the lympics city. and the other that i find myself in a big giant pot but this pot will be
a mounting one come february. aside from watching the winter games we look at what can draw crowds to salt change and keep them that also imagine heading to the gym to feel excess calories and powering the city while you're at it but that's not a possible one british club that's being forced to go green by any costs we've got the stories and a couple of minutes. unexplored antarctica what is it in this icy expanse that attracts the people who come here. but you know i only go to the dock. and enter into. a new generation of polar explorers is coming. we have a new group of specialists here now all of them are young how are they going to get along with each other and i don't know. how you. to be
icon gone some members of his white minority believe in genocide are just around the corner and that's despite reassurances from politicians over the country's stability. as the story. most of the black people say as soon as mandela dies or little white people are going to die like flies the duplicity family live in south africa's improvement on the problems in a predominantly white neighborhood they belong to a group called the safe and is convinced it's only a matter of time before the country's white population is slaughtered by the black majority in their garages full of supplies in preparation for d. day so we had together now for diesel and fuel for of a different vehicles we get another fuel to you to last us about a thousand five hundred kilometers this story chad's going to go on our vehicles that is for making food and keeping warm then. prep myself with some cereal some pastors rise all that's kind of stuff that can last

a permanent location where they'll set up a base if need be for a year or more this is my country i was born here just one more piece of land just give me what i what i want for me and my family to grow up and have some opportunities in life that's all i want but most often africans think dion's fear is exaggerated south africa belongs to everyone who lives. in eight black and white that is a world renowned constitution that takes their four but says even if his preparation is in vain it's better to be safe than sorry and so while mandela's passing heralds the end of an era a minority of white south africans are fearing a future as bleak and as gloomy as the dark years of apartheid policy r.t. south africa now defenders of women's rights in saudi arabia may see their

bring it this is the moment they're reporting from a very cold and snowy windy mountain is tough beyond the olympics but to say. thanks for being with us a today coming up next it's and breaking this. recently the federal reserve system celebrated its one hundredth birthday you know that big concave that just a few years ago no one seems to know about has been in place for one hundred years so let's celebrate the federal reserve by remembering all their accomplishments since nine hundred thirteen firstly they've managed to take the printing of money out of the hands of the u.s. government and thus out of the hands of u.s.
voters i what it comes to money who needs to mock received representation anyways they also managed to whittle away the dollars tacking the gold until nixon finally said for. gold let's print our way out of vietnam because there's no link between the dollar and gold the purchasing power of the dollar has reduced by at least twenty three times since the fed came into being lovely but what about the next hundred years well if the recent rounds of quantitative easing are any sign of things to come then we're going to be seeing a lot more inflation and big private bankers getting richer while we all get for bad people generally don't survive one hundred years but bad systems sadly can go on and on and on forever but that's just my opinion.
the. people of earth i'm not being martin this is breaking the set well after publicly opposing government surveillance last week internet search giant google has enjoyed a wave of good press but before we all decide to instill our full faith and trust the benevolent and almighty google they might just want to use their search bar to google boston dynamics he said yesterday sergey brin the little company purchased boston dynamics an engineering firm with strong ties the military's defense advanced research projects agency or darpa so what is boston dynamics all about this terrifying and shah dropping robot such as big dog four legged robot that can climb hills or cheetah
a robot that can run at twenty nine miles an hour and most life like that man humanoid robot that can move around like a human and detect chemical leaks so what the hell is one of the biggest internet companies in the world do. we're just seeing these spooky cyborgs all telling me in google's keeping tight lipped about its intentions but keep in mind the corporation has a newly created secretive robot division and it's the bible on other contracts that boston and previously had with the u.s. military great so i guess the real question here is why should we trust a corporation that holds so much of our personal information to develop absurd war machines for ethical purposes after all we really want private companies and in up with robots that can do this. i don't know if i'm ready for google to have a pride.
