believes the military is trying to hide its crackdown on the opposition by calling it a war on terror. this is this is the reality of them it lets you military coup folding in front of our eyes this is the military this is the reality of the coup military you will try to force it all on edge and on the people and you will have to fight back the country is divided that's no doubt about that i'm not saying the country is united just the word terrorism is a very like political word and cc's using it is using the war in terror just to bring and his own crackdown islamist and put it in make it like sound more american war into or isn't that the same war that george w. bush started so he wants to tell his friends in the united states that i'm doing the same as you do and i'm fighting terrorism too but in fact it is not in the reason there are peaceful protesters. sitting in the streets demanding that own
3:05 am
freedom and demanding that all votes be counted against a military coup this is i understand if you fight in terrorism and say now you are going to do there isn't and by the borders but do resume in the middle of this peaceful protest or that's does make and doesn't make any sense now of course we had our tea have additional footage coming in from egypt now these are the latest videos from a cairo field hospital as you can see in this film recorded allegedly by the muslim brotherhood many injured people coming in in fact casualties continuing to arrive at the hospital certainly disturbing video of course there's been a lot more disturbing pictures coming up on twitter from the violence in the clashes that have taken place in egypt from the previous evening now we can see some of them here some of those injured according to these pictures are children and claims in fact of a thirteen year old boy was killed in alexandria that there are also pictures

showing people allegedly firing live rounds at pro protesters which we do have on our web site right here you can logon r.t. dot com to check out the timeline of the turmoil that egypt has suffered since president morsy was deposed and of course those dramatic photos and accounts that we had mentioned r.t. dot com. i am. on to syria now the syrian national coalition met with the u.n. security council and had agreed to participate in edging up a peace conference but as artist marina poured lyall reports on a number of preconditions still have to be met before the meeting could actually
3:07 am
take place. the delegation representing the syrian opposition that is visiting new york promised to attend the geneva two meeting it seems as though the delegation has a lot of. before it will actually arrive that this should be able to meeting it seems as though they want to make sure that syrian president bashar al assad has no authority following the geneva two meeting and another precondition possibly that we could that was spoken about by the by the french envoy was the fact that once the transitional government is established that that transitional government would have full authority over the security of the military in syria as russian ambassador to the u.n. really underscored here is that all this talk of prevent the geneva two meeting from actually moving forward and taking place i understand everybody is going to act with the national committee with the supreme council of the kurds of syria but
3:08 am
there is. an understanding has not yet been achieved among them to be jointly represented presented to. the syrian opposition would like to receive the weapons in arms and military aid that the obama administration recently promised to provide to the rebels fighting against syrian president bashar al assad many ask why would washington be shipping more weapons in. the civil war that is now we see two and a half years france's envoy to the u.n. i just spoke to the media and said that the vast majority of you would member states already recognize mr jardine as the sole representative of the syrian people legally i don't know how that can happen within the u.n. there there can't be official recognition of someone that is not a head of state or without it being processed within the united nations also with some experts are questioning is the overall legitimacy of the syrian national
3:09 am
coalition critics say the group has no power and lots of work and recognition inside of syria. isn't piri an activist for the answer anti-war call action believes the syrian rebels are only willing to negotiate when they have the upper hand the united states and the united kingdom france other western nations have really made clear that they will only accept the fall of the side and despite the fact that they continually try to say that they're for peace negotiations it seems at every turn whether it's sending arms to the rebels whether it's sending them quote unquote non-lethal aid money in general supporting the gulf countries that are also supporting them that really all of the talk about peace is disingenuous and unlike russia and other countries they seem very. determined to push forward the syrian rebels as the new leadership of the country regardless of the situation on the ground when the russian the united states where originally trying to promote the geneva two conference we saw that the syrian rebels essentially said that they
3:10 am
had no intention of negotiating until the situation on the ground changed that is so they gave the military upper hand so from their perspective they seem only willing to negotiate if the military situation allows them to have the upper hand in negotiations but if they seem to be losing the war if it seems that support for them inside of the country is dropping all of a sudden they have no desire to negotiate and they only want to continue to push war which is the subtext of this entire meeting where on the sidelines they have been pushing for more and more military aid from the united states and for it to come significantly quicker. chris up to tina who is an analyst for a public opinion on political strategy when each believes that u.s. involvement in syria could potentially create another iraq. there are so many factions that have so much influence with this coalition and even the assad government has brought in others outsiders if you will to sort of prop up their government that there doesn't seem to be any particular group that can claim to be in charge or one side or the other the whole situation has become balkanize the
3:11 am
last thing people in america want is to get into another situation or rock which is very confusing we never really pick the side. to be on that seem to be the right side and ten years after our invasion they're so good there doesn't seem to be any kind of coalition no around a governing body that all rocky's can agree on is as far as most americans are concerned this is just another big mess well don't go away have lots more stories for you on our team coming out of washington says that it is moving towards closing that one on one play the president by sending two inmates back to algeria as we hear later on in the program their future in the country may not work out for the better also to report on how some folks in venezuela are turning to so-called self-defense groups to call the danger of staggering street crime and the police to be powerless.

prosecutors now say that those five men were able to compromise roughly one hundred sixty million credit cards causing upwards of three hundred million dollars of damage they were able to elude authorities for around seven or eight years now but actually masterminding this operation itself took a lot of very careful planning now of the five men that are believed involved in this each one kind of had a separate little niche that they would specialize in for instance were experts when it came to penetrating computer networks others were would go into these networks after they were compromised in mind for data even more would build up a very very sophisticated internet network should be able to communicate anonymously so by having different specialists in different sectors they are all able to to put the pieces together and cause millions of dollars hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage and affect people around the globe two of them were arrested one of them has since been extradited from the netherlands the other one is awaiting extradition and three of them are at large so once they are brought

to choose a moscow friendly course the league is moving in the opposite direction afraid of dissent because the voice of the protesters isn't a new one to be. at the same time moscow wants to see its next door neighbor to play a bit of a more active role in regional cooperation for example by starting by joining the customs union of which russia of course is a. player prince a common means also highly dependent on russia with some seven hundred thousand ukrainians employed in russia on top of that there are forced cultural and religious ties he if at one point has been the center of the slavic lands and it was here that one thousand and twenty five years ago he was adopted and that it's that religion is a better fact among other things a force that keeps the countries close through all the trials and tribulations and many warn that if your crane chooses to steer away from russia hoping to find a better role or a better future within the european union it risks losing not just its independence

a society's ills today they're known either as protectors of the community or violent vigilante groups depending on whom you ask we need to get is also known as now a senior member of the evil. for some time ago american imperialism that had infiltrated latin america in venezuela in particular cause massive spread of drugs across our territory we have to combat this disease that's when the movement of our own kid even protests and narrow started we also start of a model of urban groups that fight drug trafficking and violence we clean up the streets. so we're here at the us and there are a lot of shanty towns here and it's very rural who go chavez and also pro but it's also home to a very strong leftist activism and people here tell me that they don't welcome the police they don't want to see him here because they say that the police here are corrupt instead they have groups armed groups called the collective us who maintain
3:24 am
security in this area may. be going after drug traffickers but it's widely believed that at times they also resort to lethal means some locals say however that there's no alternative for now police corruption has been so rampant that in two thousand and nine the government even admitted that twenty percent of crimes were committed by crooked cops but the quality was self proclaimed role as protector may be challenged as nicolas maduro pushes his secure fatherland plan deploying some three thousand troops into the streets of caracas let's take the example of the quality was they might help the government one day and then they might become all allied with local mafias on the next day mr nikola motherhood of the new president and with chavez out of the scene is certainly going to have much greater difficulty in bringing them under the sway of government policies and government orders he's definitely getting into very very difficult waters there because if he sends at

3:26 am
boy boy oh. there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there from mysterious extra planets drip killian creatures living among us but there also may conspiracy theories that are very plausible and some that are well actually true one that i've heard for a long time is that they are specifically trying to fill the police with dimwits to abuse the american people which is silly right right according to a.b.c. news a discrimination lawsuit revealed that robert jordan was denied the chance to become a new london police officer because he was too smart his entrance exam score was a thirty three which is an i.q. of one hundred twenty five and it was just too high to allow him to defend the public good that police department only accepts candidates who have scores from twenty to twenty seven the logic is that people who are too smart get bored as policemen and they're more likely to quit after years of costly training. yeah this is proof of a conspiracy theory well the lowest score they accept is still around an average
3:27 am
i.q. so that doesn't mean they're specifically trying to fill the place with subpar people but it does seem really weird to fear people with high i.q.'s entering the police force this case to have a confirms nor denies the conspiracy theory but is definitely food for thought and does it kind of not make sense to discriminate against anyone ever for having a high i.q. i don't know but that's just my opinion. welcome to the kaiser report i'm max kaiser the u.k.'s business secretary vince cable as compare the bank of england to the taliban and to the hottest vince made this comparison not because of their reckless quantitative easing nor because of their
3:28 am
overlooking bank fraud and infinite retired profit cation that is to say because they are indeed terrorists now vince cable saying that the bank of england are jihadi he's for insisting banks have minimum capital reserves vince. old boy as i've said for years the bank of england are indeed like the taliban but only because they provided the safe haven for the jihadi of banking fraud who strapped on the debt packed suicide vests and blew up the entire frickin economy. and that same taliban central bank is now papering over the bloody aftermath with little pieces of digital paper that explain more we turn to stacey or when max first of all i did look at jihad and i'm sure the n.s.a. knows i looked it up on google and the definition provided by google was that it's
3:29 am
a war of struggle against unbelievers so this is important for the rest of the episode this notion of unbelievers which i think we should return for the west as disbelievers nobody believes their lies and fraud anymore vince cable calls bank of england capital taliban vince cable has stirred tensions within the bank of england by apparently comparing policy makers to the taliban over restrictions imposed upon banks well first of all let me say something which is that i coined the term financial terrorists and now here comes vince cable glomming onto my toy atic characterization of the bank of england and all the banks and the u.k. as financial terrorists by creating this term of capital g. hottest but of course he's misapplying about term the banks of course they would need capital reserves.
