across the entire arab world it looks to me like a vagabond quote it's a double or nothing strategy they seem to be shooting the works for destabilisation mubarak is not dependent enough he's not dependent enough on nato he's not dependent enough on the i.m.f. above all they're looking for some kind of end there jerrick regimes that could be played against iran or for other other purposes they're also trying to appeal to this generation of young media lists across the arab world whose imaginations have been captured by a sun you know i don't know if that there were real grievances there for price the gasoline price the unemployment but those really have more to do with the wall street depression than with somebody like mubarak then of course there is the question of political oppression and repression which has been going on in egypt look at the weakness of the u.s. the u.s. could not determine the government in iraq even though the u.s. was occupying the country they wanted allow we they got more leaky the pro. in

lebanon the u.s. has tremendous influence on. that's another country that's heavily dependent in this case the the new government is more controlled by hezbollah than by the united states so it would seem to me now that we're going to find out soon enough whether the weakness of the us has reached such a point that they can no longer overthrow a government like egypt and of course in iran in june and july of two thousand and nine there was an attempt to have the twitter revolution yet another called a revolution that one failed similarly in lebanon whenever you're dealing with a with a well organized force that opposes the color revolution the cia people power coup has a very very hard time in succeeding if the army and the police continue to support mubarak and the internet stays turned off then it looks to me like the the smart bet is probably that this is not going to be a cakewalk for these demonstrators and the other question of course is what's their program do they have any solutions or anything their solution seems to be down with

mubarak some people would say that if the muslim brotherhood gets the upper hand the army might step in some people in the in the demonstrations seem to want the army to take over but that would simply be a new mubarak investigative journalist webster tarpley he was talking to our. on the horrific bomb attack at moscow's busiest airport the kill thirty five show the rush hour is dealing with a very serious threat we ask people in the street now how the world should react to such terror and what measures should be taken that's coming your way shortly but the president. obviously horrible what happens but these people that's what they're trying to get they're trying to get the reaction he can't let them have that kind of power over society and be scared all the time. disappointment and lack of trust in the media some americans turning to alternative

sources for news they claim big corporations are pushing their interests out of the public rather than the facts he is anastasio chuck and i went to find out who's behind the information being broadcast in the united states. everyone seems to know that he who pays the piper gets to call the tune. in the us paying the piper and running the show are corporations that you may call what american see hear and read it's a money maker it's a cash cow people don't think that that there's any money in the media i mean aside from health care these days there's probably the media is is the industry of the twenty first century half a century ago fifty corporations rammed a major networks and newspapers since then a rapid concentration of media ownership has resulted in a near media monopoly spearheaded by a lucky few pumping money from the news cash cow and piping corporate interests to the viewers and readers the danger of this kind of media concentration is that it

journalists treading lightly around corporate and governmental elites it almost defeats the reason for their even existing the purpose of existence for corporations is profit meaning investors interests are police to head of anything else that would matter in journalism good business is bad journalism good journalism is. bad business broadcaster laura flanders says counting on getting facts from the corporate media is simply naive because be reliant on military contractors. to bring us news about the war any more than we can be reliant upon television networks that are run by disney to bring us the truth about what's happening in our economy our media are increasingly monopolized the number of voices interested in bringing their viewers a little something called truth has decreased as a result instead of representing journalism the media have become louder mouthpieces for corporations if that's the truth in our hearts. because of this
4:09 am
doubt in the media more americans are turning to the internet and other alternative news sources to find out the truth but radio host alex jones says the world wide web is in danger of becoming manipulated by big business it's another issue is that you have the old dinosaur media now owned by five or maybe six major conglomerates and they're really teaming up with the government and getting secret payments so this came out five years ago famous cases of reporters being given hundreds of thousands of dollars apiece by the bush administration armstrong williams is one of the famous instances to go out and promote new federal initiatives that bush was pushing and this really exploded under clinton expanded under bush and it's now just gone into warp speed under barack obama so it's not just that you have these five to six mega corporations that have all these other corporate subsidiaries and they won't report on things that put them in a bad light you have direct government payments of taxpayer money she currently

world remain in shock of a suicide bomb attack at moscow's dome of the head of airport last monday thirty five people were killed and still over one hundred remain in hospital president dmitri medvedev has called for a much tougher approach towards tackling terrorism and in an interview to bloomberg he said russians should stand closer together in the face of such danger. consolidating all public forces and we vanquish this evil we have no right to get hysterical phone terrorism and spread out who this will make terrorism stronger look at the way americans came together after the events of nine eleven even those who are not very fond of president bush said which yes he's got to be at the helm he's got to be tough it's got to be the same for our country that's the only way we can defeat terrorism but that wasn't looking. now you can watch the full interview with bloomberg on dmitri medvedev to find a website that's auty dot com now russian lawmakers are already working on stepping up antiterrorism measures they've drawn up a draft law to introduce
4:12 am
a new terror alert system in the country and he warning of an impending terrorist attack will be assessed on a three level color scale with the red alert being the highest security services with and take preventive action in accordance with the level of danger the system is already being compared to a similar one in america lawmakers promise it will not affect the right so freedoms of russians u.s. intelligence expert fred burton says fighting terror is all about balancing technical and human resources. there has to be a careful balance in essence you need that very granular intelligence to tell you who to look for and also need the technology to help you there are some very good technology that's available to do that they can be deployed but at the end of the day in essence if you look at a lot of these catastrophes it boils down to human failure blood boils down to very good human intelligence on very specific terrorist plots the problem is
4:13 am
most intelligence services lack that granularity on any specific threat so your base to a lot of your security ramifications on threat assessments looking at probability and also trying to evaluate your intelligence gaps when you look at this kind of threat what you don't know is almost as important as what you do know i mean time web journalist laura hoffman is also known as the resident she asks people in the big apple how do we challenge terrorism and whether we actually have the answer to even stop it. the suicide bomber in moscow the car bomb in iraq the shootings in tucson considering the recent spate of violent acts around the globe are we doing enough to prevent terrorism this week let's talk about that i think we could be keeping
4:14 am
lines of communication open and i think we can be trying to consider other people's perspectives i think we can be thinking more about policy and less about rhetoric are you willing to do more for if it meant the world is going to be protected more like strip searched at airports if necessary i'm i willing to be censors. i think the new machine i have is fine see through clothes you're ok with that ok do you think the scanners are ok if it means we're safe yes your clothes are coming off a nobody stacia do you think it's ever justifiable old you think anyone ever has a good enough reason to get that angry to do something like that no no i think those. there's obviously something vulgar wrong with them to thank about we that it's but it's a good thing to kill people and kill themselves illinois but what if you were being enslaved and you felt like you had no way out when you feel like violence would be an option then. not for other people to suffer no you have to go to these people
4:15 am
you can't obviously it's horrible what happens but these people that's what they're trying to get they're trying to get the reaction here let them have that kind of power over society and be scared all the time so if the media turns it down a little bit of the coverage it will have an impact on that make them consider whether or not they're going to do it i think so whether or not you think we're doing enough to end terrorism the bottom line is with all the recent violence clearly we have yet to succeed. it's now a quarter past the hour here in the russian capital you without say the deputy governor of afghanistan's a kandahar province has been killed in an apparent assassination and a suicide bomber on a motorcycle rammed into the official's car while he was on his way to work the blast killed abdul latif us now on the spot three of his bodyguards were wounded in
