ActualidadRT 9/11/2012 - Las cacerolas vuelven a sonar en Argentina , Entrevista exclusiva de RT al presidente de Siria, Bashar al Assad , EE. UU. podría activar sus campañas militares para "salvar" el dólar


Los argentinos salen a las calles para expresar su desacuerdo con la política del gobierno de Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. La manifestación, convocada a través de las redes sociales, fue apoyada por algunos ciudadanos de ese país en el extranjero. La jornada del 8N, convocada a través de las redes sociales y respaldada por varios partidos opositores, se realiza en la capital y en otras ciudades del país. Una manifestación similar se realizó en septiembre pasado. El ruido de las cacerolazos trae diferentes razones por las cuales los manifestantes están descontentos con la gestión de Cristina Fernández; entre ellas la inseguridad, la restricción para la compra de dólares y la próxima aplicación de la ley de medios audiovisuales. Las cacerolas vuelven a sonar en Argentina Entrevista exclusiva de RT al presidente de Siria, Bashar al Assad En una entrevista exclusiva a RT, Bashar al Assad, presidente de Siria, habla del papel desestabilizador que desempeña Occidente en el conflicto sirio,revela por qué algunos países temen declarar su apoyo al Gobierno, bajo qué condiciones se puede llegar a la paz y qué pasaría en caso de una intervención extranjera. El mandatario dejó claro que el problema del conflicto sirio no es entre el pueblo y él y los que están en su contra son EE.UU., Occidente, varios países árabes y Turquía. "Occidente siempre crea enemigos. En el pasado fue el comunismo, luego el islam y después fue Saddam Hussein, por otras razones. Y ahora quieren representar en Bashar, un nuevo enemigo; por eso dicen que el problema es el presidente y que por eso debe irse", opinó Al Assad. EE. UU. podría activar sus campañas militares para "salvar" el dólar La crisis económica en EE.UU. podría costarle la vida a millones de personas en todo el mundo, advierte el economista Juan Torres López. Según el experto, para salvar el prestigio internacional de su moneda y recuperar su dominio financiero, Washington podría activar sus campañas militares. Dos puntos principales de la agenda del presidente estadounidense reelecto Barack Obama serán no permitir que el país vuelva a caer en recesión y encontrar una solución para una deuda que se incrementa de tal modo que convierte al dólar en "papel mojado", según López. Si esto no sucede y la crisis económica en EE.UU. sigue profundizándose, esto pondrá en peligro "la paz, los derechos humanos, la libertad y la vida de millones de personas en todo el planeta", opina el analista. Elecciones en EE.UU.: "Todo es una hipocresía y todo lo decide el dinero" Los observadores internacionales destacan que los comicios presidenciales en EE.UU. tuvieron ciertos defectos que deberían ser eliminados, pues en el proceso electoral se registraron distintos métodos para consumar fraudes. El director del periódico 'La Nación Cubana', Pedro González Munné, consideró que "el círculo político que constituyen las elecciones, en este caso presidenciales, da una muestra de que lo que realmente es la política en este país, donde todo tiene un precio". En diálogo con RT, González enfatizó que en la actualidad, la palabra democracia significa "como nosotros queremos" y que "en EE.UU. todo es una gran hipocresía y sencillamente todo lo decide el dinero y los grandes centros de poder". Detrás de la noticia: Mandato renovado Barack Obama ganó las Presidenciales frente a su rival republicano Mitt Romney. En medio de las celebraciones y felicitaciones, los expertos intercambian opiniones sobre los posibles cambios en la política estadounidense, en el ámbito nacional e internacional. Mientras, el mismo proceso de votación levanta dudas sobre su transparencia. La oposición siria ocupa Ras al-Ayn La oposición Siria ha tomado por la fuerza la ciudad fronteriza con Turquía, informa Jerusalem Post. Según la oposición, la ciudad tiene importancia estratégica porque les podrá abrir un paso a Turquía por el que podrían recibir provisiones y enviar a los heridos. Este hecho ha preocupado a los kurdos del país. El Consejo Supremo Kurdo --una coalición de partidos kurdos que se oponen al presidente Bashar al Assad-- ha llamado a la oposición a dejar la ciudad. "El Consejo Kurdo confirma que toma parte en la revolución contra el régimen, pero la gobernación de Al-Hasakah debe mantenerse como una zona pacífica y segura para los refugiados que llegan aquí desde otras regiones", se dice en el documento difundido por el Consejo Kurdo. En tanto, el Consejo Nacional Sirio eligió a sus nuevos dirigentes, quienes tienen un fuerte perfil islamista. Estos cambios son interpretados por el analista político Miguel Guaglianone como un intento de la cúpula opositora de reorganizarse para tener el visto bueno de EE.UU. y añade que Washington no confía en el Consejo Nacional sirio. Experto: Pese a la presión internacional, EE.UU. no cambiará su política hacia Cuba La semana que viene la Asamblea General de la ONU considerará la exigencia de Cuba para poner fin al bloqueo económico de EE.UU. que, según los expertos, no va a obedecer ya que le tiene inquina a La Habana. "Yo creo que EE.UU. nunca va a perdonar, al menos mientras Fidel Castro esté vivo, el hecho de que hayan tenido desde el punto de vista estadounidense el atrevimiento de estar dispuestos a instalar misiles nucleares desde donde se podía atacar cualquier punto de territorio estadounidense", le dijo a RT el analista político Julio Aliaga. "A EE.UU. desde luego le importa lo que opina la comunidad internacional pero no tanto o de lo contrario, por ejemplo en el caso de Guantánamo. Ellos más bien obedecen a las presiones y a las corrientes políticas dentro de EE.UU., a la política interior de EE.UU.", agregó. Irán, otra vez sancionado por EE.UU. Washington ha impuesto este jueves nuevas sanciones contra Irán. Los estadounidenses tienen prohibido cualquier contacto con algunos altos cargos políticos, cinco entidades gubernamentales del país, dos universidades y la Empresa Nacional de Petróleo, entre otros organismos. Tanto a los funcionarios sancionados como a las entidades -Ministerio de Comunicaciones, Consejo de Supervisión de Prensa, dos universidades vinculadas a la Guardia Revolucionaria de Irán y la Empresa Nacional de Petróleo de Irán- se les imputa apoyo del terrorismo y ejercer censura que impide "la libertad de expresión o asamblea de la población" y un acceso libre a los medios de comunicación extranjeros. Según los medios estadounidenses, en un futuro próximo la ofensiva de la Casa Blanca contra Teherán podría acelerarse aún más. Actualmente los legisladores están elaborando un nuevo paquete de sanciones sin precedentes contra Teherán para impedirle el comercio con la mayor parte del mundo. La iniciativa conjunta del senador republicano Mark Kirk y el senador demócrata Robert Menendez prevé sanciones a todas las áreas, desde los activos iraníes en el extranjero hasta todos los productos que el país importa. Periodista de RT: "Al Assad está completamente demonizado por la prensa" El conflicto sirio es exponencialmente más complicado que el que presenta la prensa y el presidente Bashar al Assad ha sido víctima de una demonización de los medios, dijo la entrevistadora de la exclusiva al líder sirio, Sophie Shevardnadze. "Tuve la oportunidad de hablar con él durante unos 15 minutos antes de la entrevista y él está completamente demonizado por la prensa, porque es un hombre muy educado y muy agradable. No parece tener esa enfermedad de ser un presidente y todo eso. Él es un tipo muy sensato", opinó la entrevistadora. Según Sophie Shevardnadze, lo que más le sorprendió fue es que en realidad la situación en Siria es mucho más complicada en comparación con cómo la pintan en la prensa. Tras hablar con la gente, la periodista dijo darse cuenta de que incluso a la gente a la que antes del inicio del conflicto no le gustaba Al Assad, está muy asustada de que los fundamentalistas, que luchan en el bando del Ejército Libre Sirio, lleguen al poder. El cártel de Sinaloa compraba armas a la Patrulla Fronteriza de EE.UU. El testigo colaboró con la procuraduría general de México en la persecución de un contador del cártel dirigido por Joaquín 'el Chapo' Guzmán. En su testimonio se revelan detalles de una serie de enfrentamientos librados entre los cárteles del narcotráfico que intentaban expulsar a las bandas rivales del territorio del oeste en el desierto mexicano. Para ello, el grupo buscó la compra de armas de los EE.UU., incluyendo al menos 30 rifles WASR-10, una variante del AK-47, supuestamente suministrados por agentes de la Patrulla Fronteriza, informó la revista mexicana Contralínea. De ser cierto, este hecho podría reavivar el debate sobre la operación 'Rápido y Furioso', en la que las autoridades estadounidenses permitieron la adquisición de armas por parte de grupos ilegales mexicanos para tratar luego -infructuosamente- rastrear su paradero. El testigo, que tiene el seudónimo 'Victoria', se unió en 2009 al grupo conocido como Gente Nueva, aliado del cártel de Sinaloa. Allí trabajó para un grupo más pequeño llamado Las Jabalinas. Su trabajo, a lo largo de 2009 y 2010, era eliminar a miembros de los cárteles rivales de los Zetas y los Beltrán Leyva que se habían apoderado del territorio del cártel de Sinaloa en el desierto del oeste de México.

ActualidadRT 8/11/2012 - Un babuino adopta a un gatito que se coló en su jaula del zoo , AVANCE: Detrás de la Noticia. MANDATO RENOVADO , Voluntarios prestan ayuda tras un incendio en un refugio de animales en Moscú


En la periferia de Damasco se han realizado operaciones antiterroristas, mientras en Alepo no ha cesado el tiroteo en toda la noche. Los expertos opinan que la oposición no tiene éxito porque "su programa son las bombas y los asesinatos". La artillería siria disparó la mañana del jueves en Damasco contra los rebeldes que se instalaron en los distritos de Maidan y Nahr Aisha. Los medios locales informan de que a Damasco se dirigen las tropas rebeldes desde la vecina provincia de Homs, donde recientemente se llevó a cabo una operación antiterrorista. Las fuerzas de seguridad bloquearon por la mañana el suroeste del distrito de Kfar Susa en la capital siria. La abogada y escritora Purificación González de la Blanca, opina que esta oposición, apoyada desde el extranjero, no tiene ninguna credibilidad porque se dedica a sembrar el terrorismo. "Aquí se trata de la denominada comunidad internacional encabezada por EE.UU. que trata de saquear los recursos en Siria como ya lo hicieron en Libia y se dedican a sembrar el terrorismo para saquearlo y dejar detrás el caos". "La oposición siria que se dedica al terrorismo no tiene credibilidad alguna" Voluntarios prestan ayuda tras un incendio en un refugio de animales en Moscú En el sureste de Moscú más de una decena de gatos y perros han muerto en un incendio provocado anoche por unos desconocidos que arrojaron un objeto sin identificar al refugio para animales Alma. Las jaulas y materiales de protección contra el frío prendieron causando la muerte de al menos 12 animales por quemaduras y asfixia. Los trabajadores del refugio piden ayuda para poder proteger a los gatos y perros frente al inminente invierno. AVANCE: Detrás de la Noticia. MANDATO RENOVADO Barack Obama ganó las Presidenciales frente a su rival republicano Mitt Romney. En medio de las celebraciones y felicitaciones, los expertos intercambian opiniones sobre los posibles cambios en la política estadounidense, en el ámbito nacional e internacional. Mientras, el mismo proceso de votación levanta dudas sobre su transparencia. Un babuino adopta a un gatito que se coló en su jaula del zoo El felino se niega a abandonar la vivienda del mono, quien le ha tomado mucho cariño. El babuino cuida de su pequeño amigo como si fuese su propia cría. Lo acaricia y hasta le saca las pulgas. Las autoridades del zoológico informaron que aunque el babuino cuida del gato no siempre se llevan bien. A menudo, el primate puede ser visto robándole la comida a su visita. El director del zoológico piensa separar los animales si el mandril sigue su actividad ladronesca. Sin embargo, por el momento la pareja puede continuar disfrutando de la convivencia. El soldado Manning aceptaría su responsabilidad por el caso WikiLeaks Durante la audiencia preliminar en Maryland, la de defensa de Manning ofreció un acuerdo al fiscal según el cual el soldado "aceptaría la responsabilidad general de proporcionar la información a WikiLeaks" que incluye cables sobre la guerras de Afganistán e Irak, memorandos secretos del Departamento de Estado y el video de un helicóptero Apache de EE.UU. disparando contra periodistas y civiles en Bagdad, entre otros. "Manning no se declara culpable o inocente", explicó Kevin Gosztola, coautor de 'Verdad y consecuencias', un libro sobre el soldado y su implicación en caso WikiLeaks. En ese sentido, precisó que se trata de una maniobra para asegurar el mejor resultado posible para él en la Corte Marcial. Asimismo, Gosztola explicó que no se trata de un acuerdo con el Gobierno, ya que será el juez quien decidirá aceptar o rechazar la petición. En caso de que la respuesta sea afirmativa, Manning se enfrentaría al Gobierno en un nivel más bajo y podría evitar ciertos cargos en su contra, incluidos espionaje y fraude informático, aunque el cargo de "ayudar al enemigo" aún permanecería, según Gostzola. El analista político Emilio Viano considera que la concesión hecha por Bradley Manning es consecuencia de la presión psicológica que sufrió. "Hay una posibilidad de que pudiera haber sido impuesta sobre él, que tiene solo 24 años, claro una presión psicológica de tantos años en la cárcel y sabemos que particularmente en el inicio fue muy mal tarado", así que "hay algo traumático que ha impactado mucho y quiere evitar el proceso que puede ser más traumático", dice el analista.

In many states voting has already started, to get all the information you need to vote, go here: http://OFA.BO/PENHuZ The 100th Day of the Romney Administration Take a look at the first 100 days of the Romney administration. Elections have consequences, and this is the "real change" that Romney is promising. It's the kind of change that Americans simply can't afford. In four days, Americans will decide if they want to continue moving forward with President Obama, or if Romney gets to deliver the change he has promised, taking us back to the same failed policies of the past. President Obama in Springfield, OH - Full Speech 11/2/2012 America has come too far to turn back now, and as the President reminded voters in Springfield, Ohio earlier today, there's still more work to do. That's why President Obama is fighting for the change that gets folks back to work and strengthens the middle class by making smart investments in energy, education and training, growing small businesses, promoting technology and innovation, and reducing the deficit in a balanced, bipartisan way. Lo Mismo de Siempre - Anuncio de Televisión de Obama for America President Obama Makes Some Calls After early voting in Chicago, President Obama thanked volunteers over the phone. Republican and Voting for President Obama David and Christine Poulin from New Smyrna, Florida share why they're Republicans and voting for President Obama. A few years ago their son Matthew was diagnosed with a rare condition attacking the heart. He survived after receiving a transplant and continues treatment with daily medications. Without the Affordable Care Act, the Poulins would be burdened with higher prescription drug costs and the threat of Matthew losing his health insurance. As Christine and David share: "If the Affordable Care Act were repealed there's no way that we could afford the medical bills and prescriptions that come along with the heart transplant. The pre-existing condition clause was a big relief to us. When I heard Mitt Romney say that if he's elected President he will repeal the Affordable Care Act on day one, it makes me angry." "The next president can decide the quality of my son's life and the length of my son's life. So if I vote for Governor Romney I'm voting for limiting my healthcare options for my son." Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden: Honoring our Commitment to Veterans Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden share how President Obama has demonstrated his strong and steady leadership as Commander in Chief and how he continues to honor the commitment to our troops and veterans.

Obama for America's new television ad highlights last week's powerful endorsement from retired four star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. In his support of President Obama, which represents a powerful show of bipartisanship, Powell cited the President's leadership in bringing us back from the brink of economic collapse, ending the war in Iraq, putting in place a plan to end the war in Afghanistan, and his strong record of fighting terrorism as reasons for his endorsement.

The President is fighting for the same things he's always believed and run on -- that this country cannot succeed without a growing, thriving middle class. In the decade before President Obama took office, middle-class security was undercut by the same top-down, failed economic policies that Mitt Romney is now promoting. While Romney thinks that means 'change,' the President will continue to move our country forward to real change that boosts the middle class and creates a stronger future for all Americans. President Obama in Boulder, CO - Full Speech 11/1/2012 The President is on the road meeting supporters and sharing his vision for the country.

Mayor Ed Koch Endorses the President for Four More Years Today, Obama for America released a new video endorsement from former New York City Mayor Ed Koch. Mayor Koch is proud to cast his vote for Barack Obama because of the President's unbreakable support for Israel and because he has, time and time again, proven himself to be a true friend of the Jewish state. As Mayor Koch says, "I'm confident President Obama will continue his unambiguous commitment to the Jewish state in his second term, building on his record of leadership by preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon and funding the Iron Dome missile defense system that is saving Israeli lives." Mayor Koch is also standing with the President because he is the "clear, best choice on domestic policy" and has the right ideas for moving our country forward. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan want to take us back to the failed policies that led to the worst financial crisis in a generation, and they would shred the social safety net, turning Medicare into a voucher program and cutting Medicaid. And the Mayor knows that President Obama understands we have a responsibility to look out for one another in tough times -- and that he will keep fighting for the American people every day for the next four years. As Mayor Koch says, "Those aren't just American values, they're Jewish values too."
