8:01 am
a person as he outlines the goals for the country's government and parliament which should be this bill is in the details in about two weeks it's. a very warm welcome to you this is all see live from moscow with me alice said those france is joining the u.k. and sending military officers to to advise the rebel forces where the move is aimed at breaking the stalemate between pro and anti good saffi forces after two months of clashes will announce its decision to deploy up to twenty advisors to apply the un resolution on protecting civilians and schools like. more from the aussies the war and national this north so move would argue that this goes beyond the un resolution on libya how all fronts justifying that decision. well they're saying
8:02 am
that these are not on the ground they are military advisors they are only to protect themselves according to the u.k. and apparently they're not going to be wearing uniforms and they are to do what's called what's being called organizing the rebel troops as opposed to training or arming the foreign secretary william hague here in the u.k. saying that they're going to be involved mainly in intelligence gathering also in the just sticks and in teaching these rebels how to improve communications strategy now we understand it's not clear what the numbers are but we understand that there are going to be about ten french officers who are being sent and possibly up to twenty put itself in since all the other reports say that the numbers there are all more even but i mean one thing is clear whatever these people are going to do this does are the u.k. and france its commitment to this conflict in libya and many people are saying that this is the biggest move yet to ward putting troops on the ground as most of these
8:03 am
governments have said that they don't want to do now i spoke to john baron he who is one of only thirteen m.p.'s to have voted against the intervention in libya against a total of five hundred fifty seven who voted he has great worries about how this mission is progressing let's hear what he had to say. but i think the majority of people. who voted for the convention and i respect. assumption. for monetary. or. the u.n. resolution ground. i think would clearly go beyond that resolution becoming apparent is that we now have the no fly zone in effect becoming the force of the rebel fighters and i question whether that was within the spirit. as it was originally defined. i should say that when i spoke to john baron he said that there
8:04 am
would be huge public outcry if ground troops were deployed in libya but nevertheless there's a lot of worry here in the u.k. government so much so that members of parliament from all parties have requested that parliament be recalled from its easter break to discuss what is happening in libya and whether this does constitute mission creep and what about the libyan government or what is tripoli said about this decision by the nato ally. tripoli's very angry about the foreign minister has come out and said that this could indeed worsen the conflict and in fact move deal a peace deal between the rebels and the current government further into the future he said that it would encourage defiance amongst the rebels if they thought that they were getting an ever increasing amount of support from nato and also that he says that it's a clear violation of the u.n. security council resolution which allows only the protection of civilians he says this is going one step too far as they say lots of division here in the u.k. as well talk of mission creep talk of this being outside the bounds of the u.n.
8:05 am
security council resolution and of course the ultimate worry that this is just the first that. along the road to sending in ground troops many say that this situation could turn into a similar situation to the one that you see in afghanistan where of course british forces have been involved there for ten years and counting and they're also saying that the u.k. learned nothing from iraq and afghanistan but in fact one prominent politicians campbell went one step further reminding everyone that in fact the sending of military advisers in exactly this situation was what it was the u.s. is first move when they went into vietnam nor many thanks for the course in london. coming up on the program and lost hope in the caucuses. i have. no money and no social supports. all i can do is to deter like you feed my sick child

8:07 am
interests of large corporations creating resources belonging to cash strapped countries what they do they very often pressure governments to what we call pro-cyclical the economy is weaker than recession and they want them to cut spending or raise taxes that can be very very dangerous you can slip back into recession makers certain words i tell all too familiar to line america the middle east. and most recently greece. where tens of thousands storm the streets protesting austerity measures public spending cuts and tax hikes . as the largest financial contributor launching to and also wields the largest voting power at the i.m.f. the fern of the i.m.f. it is run program by the u.s. treasury department and with some input from the european country but there tells
8:08 am
you most of the problem this is supposed to you know hundred eighty something countries and it's run by just a handful or maybe just one and american has always served as president of the world bank since its creation in one nine hundred forty four but now with its own backyard in disarray america is hardly in a position to hand out financial advice to others in two thousand and eleven america's financial management is best defined by a nonstop borrowing binge seat up talk over there it's a running ticker of u.s. debt which has surpassed a ceiling of fourteen points. three trillion dollars now the u.s. navy want to consider investing in a bigger clock with a few more digits on the display problems so bad the u.s. president can't ignore it and the government can't seem to solve it we have to live within our means we have to reduce our deficit republicans have refused to support measures such as raising taxes on the rich or cutting defense spending we're
8:09 am
approaching arsenal that on a par with the total g.d.p. of the country this is very serious because most economic research suggests that countries tend to decelerate in their growth and have more and more severe economic problems once they get the g.d.p. ratio gets above about ninety percent and we're about to go through that level all eyes are now on the nation that sets the bar for others to see if they get clean up its own bad debts at home or nine r.t. new york. on the way the u.s. looks to improve its economic standing by exploring in the energy resource before it is out why the extraction eases shale gas complete rest in the health of american. plants say they can't find a decent job at home because of the the wall so look we are back in just a few of them. or daughter says it's doing all it can to help the poor
8:10 am
through hard economic times but not everyone in the government supports thousands live below the poverty line struggling even to afford to put food on the table as a lot of our ports are from tbilisi. the small sunni country of georgia has long been known for its fresh organic produce recently it seems the fruit of georgia's economy has been rotting away. people come to the market and don't buy anything because they can't afford it out of all the goods here only that i knew them potatoes a local everything else is imported from greece and turkey and iran and so overpriced who stay here anyway because we have to try and sell something so we can eat. it yvonne knows all about having nothing to eat she hasn't even been able to afford apples were hand you can't daughter too expensive you know the money i have no home . no money and no social support all i can do is sit outside
8:11 am
a church and i can feel my sick child the only money we get is my pension around thirty u.s. dollars a month and. altogether it comes out to about seventy five dollars a month so that we have to pay the bills and buy medicine for the area which is impossible for a young has cerebral palsy and is in desperate need of surgery it can only be performed in germany but her family has new hope over raising the money other me on the normal got that she's already had. operations i mean it's five markets but i've almost lost hope i even went to a charity t.v. show if you turn you down. get one and her family live well below the poverty line and in this they're not alone you for a. second percent of. the alarm. thirty five percent.
8:12 am
percent of. the georgian government has a growing social welfare system that includes cash benefits free or low cost health insurance pensions and souters for getting care the social benefits are aimed at the poorest of the poor however actually thousand and nine world bank poverty assessment showed that only thirty percent of those citizens actually received cash assistance and it seems qualifications don't help either. it is run as a professional singer and in these tough times music is all she and her daughter hallow. the only real music to their ears would be an offer of help something neither has much faith they'll hear anytime soon he government is claiming that it's doing everything possible in the current financial climate to help its people but with more and more georgians clearly have no money for even the basics like food medicine and living like this it's clear that the poverty line is very evident
8:13 am
in the heart of the georgian capital. cashiers are r.t. b.c. georgia. now only has more than three. united states is that pairing a deep on the ground school exaction and nice as is being given top priority for eg the risks to health and the environment i'm not being taken seriously about i don't know who is corrupt. it's cheap it's readily available and it's made in the united states washington has hailed shield gas as the next big thing for energy development over the past five years the u.s. has invested billions of dollars into the field bringing cheap energy to consumers chil deposits lie deep underground and unlike natural gas cheryl is widely available in the us which means the country doesn't have to pay for imports go out for. the shale revolution stems from high gas prices like the main question right
8:14 am
now is how will the shale gas industry survive where the gas prices are one hundred two hundred fifty dollars which is four times less than they were say six years ago . this tight back european countries are also looking at potential shale gas resources on their territory albeit with some hesitation rights now it's more holds then facts and we have really just being can realistically about this source of energy we don't want to think in the terms of cause in russia and america have thought another potential plus of shale of course is stopping countries dependence on russia which the players most of europe with natural gas already saying that if shale deposits are found in europe most poor will lose the advantage of supplying gas to other countries what the inhabitants of the gas from
8:15 am
power don't seem to be losing any sleep over this supposedly right because people here's why. we're watching the situation and we think that local eatery buyable but it will remain a local gas supply in the us it's impossible to extra gas to last for long and if you look at the shale gas players right now you'll see that most of them are losing money. shale gas may be easily available but its development. does not come cheap and if i was what you order to get shale gas you must drill horizontally incessant cap and that means the profit margin of the process gets lost very fast with profile of the put out and though the above on ministration has hailed shale as an environmentally friendly out for the natural gas a recent study this on this question several scandals have already broken out in the us because of the facts of shale gas development only environment and people's health. chill gases extracted by hydro fracking that means special chemicals around
8:16 am
into the water to break up the rock formations the components of these chemicals are kept secret by the companies in the united states and claim it's a commercial secret water laced with chemicals ends up in drinking water so shale gas development poses a serious threat to the environment and health in the united states may have done russian gas production two years ago but like any seeming miracle cure shale gas may prove yet another thought and dangerous economy. now from all the international news this hour and there's renewed violence in yemen in separate incidents around government protesters killed by mozart gunman was a policeman that died in clashes it comes a day after security this is at the demonstrations in the capital sanaa killing at least. the victims died of gunshot and nine others are in

russia's the prime minister's annual address to the country's law makers last year prime minister putin has promised that his government is going to do everything it can just beat up the bruises over the recovery of russian economy from a global financial crisis and here are some figures for you on that as russia's g.d.p. grew four percent in two thousand pounds and that's more than in any or all of the g. eight countries and the forecast for this year's growth is four point two percent also capitalization over the russian financial markets exceeded the cap capitalization of markets all the great group of countries of emerging economies in two thousand and seven now the forecast for inflation in wash out of this year is from six point five to seven point five percent in comparison to last year's eight point eight percent still government debt in washington in two thousand and ten was just ten percent of the country's g.d.p. while in countries such as the united states for example the government has
