2:30 am
welcome back here with our t. here's a look at the top stories british m.p.'s accuse a government of great misjudgment over the selling of weapons to arab regimes now using them against their own people the u.k. sold the worst three hundred million dollars worth of weapons to colonel gadhafi shortly before i believe you know uprising began. at present in one finds himself under attack for speaking out against children terrorised local market and his terrilyn supporters in helsinki finland shelters an extremist islamist web site work amar for make statements about terror attacks in russia. and breaking the news
2:31 am
breaking the budget u.s. network scandal the cost of covering disasters and war but still find the millions needed to pay their star anchors some outlets have spent most of your and your budget in just a few months. well despite public criticism of home over its participation in the bombing of libya britain continues massing its forces as i were active as john breeze told r.t. floor am at but government will not was draw from the conflict before the coalition reshapes the political map of the region and here's more of his thoughts. today i'm talking to john reese he's very active in the stop the war coalition that position is that the british military should not have got involved in intervention in libya john reese thank you very much for talking to r.t. now the government says that the airstrikes prevented a massacre in benghazi why are you right and they're wrong well i think the longer
2:32 am
term effects would be even worse than the effects might have been on benghazi but i don't actually accept the government's argument about benghazi either if you look at the guardian reports on the day before the air strikes took place from benghazi it's clear that the rebels in benghazi stop gadhafi. before he got beyond the suburbs and i think it would have been impossible for a force of maybe tens of thousands of soldiers to have taken the city of a million people so i don't accept that that was a sufficient justification for the war in the first place i also think there is some evidence again report in the guardian newspaper that we actually moved into playing the take shelter from possible air attacks so far from producing the effect that the government said it would produce the opposite effect so your position is just stand back leave well alone and let them sort themselves out well i certainly think that when a revolution takes place in the country it's no business of the people in that
2:33 am
country to conduct a revolution and my point about western intervention would be this i don't think that they did intervene in order to assist a revolution process i think they intervened in order to get control over additional process and we begin to see now in the weeks since the western intervention but there are protests and figures emerging as the dominant it was within the beginning ministration often they're the same people who only yesterday were in the regime who were feeling very happily with the west for the last decade so i think that they're shaping and molding the uprising in ways which are compatible with the interests of the western powers whereas. regional riparian certainly wasn't what damage do you think western this type of western involvement does to regional uprising how does it corrupts the original purpose of it well i think it's very very clear in the in the libyan case that there are people now coming to the fore who were trained in the west have links with the west have links
2:34 am
with the west and security services who wouldn't have come to the top had the west not intervene there was a democratic structure in benghazi the transitional national council was a body represented by twenty local council beneath it but when the western powers intervene the people who become selected to become the leadership of it are people who have the ear of the west therefore the whole democratic process of representing the libyan people become distorted there are people who know the era of the west who are the authorities the people who can broker the deals over with the intervention of the people to broker the deal that's taking place with qatar about the sale of oil the whole principle of a popular democratic revolution becomes corroded corrupted and demeaned by the intervention of the western powers and what did you experience in the region what's your feeling about the sort of sentiment that prevails on the streets now i think is a very very powerful impulse both to have
2:35 am
a democratic society but also i think the roots of the revolutions are to do with the rejection of the nearly probably economics which let's face it the mubarak was very strongly associated with a neo liberal economic policy privatizing state industry and i think a lot of the the fire in the engine of egyptian revolution was to do with a rejection of that and we can see by the massive strike wave as taking place actually in the two days before barack felber but massively expanded since then but this is a very very big issue for many millions of egyptians we know the u.g. couple to be the union into music. it was at the heart of the revolution which overthrew ben ali and we know that economic and. economic questions were central to the beginning of that revolution i believe will be central to the future of it as well so democracy yes but a rejection of near liberalism and also i think a very deep dissatisfaction with the alliance between the dictators in the region
2:36 am
by the western powers and the state of israel so i think that in all three registers political democracy economic challenge to merely produce a challenge to the imperial structure of the region we're going to see very very profound developments and you mentioned iraq and a lot of people are comparing this to iraq and afghanistan but this is a bit different isn't it i mean after all these are strikes do you support what was essentially initially a popular uprising yes but as i say it was an intervention not to save revolution but to subvert revolution and and it's as well here is also to remember an important element of the history in iraq especially actually from the first gulf war because there were no flows on with the no fly zones were imposed on northern and southern iraq just after the coalition had defeated saddam hussein they allowed saddam hussein's helicopters to fly under the cover of the no fly zone to put down
2:37 am
the rising of the marsh arabs in the size it's not inconceivable actually that if they come to a cease fire if they come to some kind of settlement they will allow gadhafi to put down the remnants of a rebellion here as well so the fact that we're fighting gadhafi you know doesn't preclude that it didn't in iraq the fact that a no fly zone by will be used against the rebels in the future could this turn into anyone out there in iraq and afghanistan people are warning that it could go among them the turkish prime minister i mean there doesn't seem to be any such thing anymore as a sort of quick and clean it out operation well the difficulty is here that the coalition forces are actually jammed up by the political developments surrounding this. interventional they're obviously very very concerned about full scale military intervention on the ground so in that sense i think the antiwar painting both here and in the united states has prevented a full scale invasion so far but as any military analyst will tell you you can't
2:38 am
win a ground war simply with air power and they are obviously winning it and that's why there's all this talk about stalemate that a stalemate is very hard to resolve without the. without the deployment of ground troops i sincerely hope that doesn't happen it would be a massive curation of the situation if that were to be the case but if it doesn't happen then i think we are looking at a very very messy situation which may lead to the partition of libya may lead to a prolonged civil war actually if the west are kept out funnily enough the market over sooner and ahead is the war in iraq there's a huge public outcry you know hundreds of thousands of people out on the streets demonstrating against public opinion is increasingly against this war in libya but do you think the main thing that the government has learned from iraq is how to sell a war to the public no i think it's learned not to commit itself to a war very quickly see i mean it was obvious that there was going to salute the massive ground invasion i mean apart from the other came after the invasion of
2:39 am
afghanistan it was absolutely clear what was going to what was going to happen i think the public opinion is actually calibrated to the degree of move from them over the fact is avoiding a ground war i think is reflected in the opinion polls of people who are against what's happening but they don't see it on the same scale as the iraq war which indeed it is and yet i think if there were any sign that there was going to be a serious deployment of ground troops in libya you would have an absolutely massive response partly as we can see from the opinion polls. there is a majority against the into. but there are a very large number of turnovers that would alter very very quickly if there were talk of a ground war i think what role do you think the media plays in egypt and i think an interaction like this i think the main difficulty with the media is that it doesn't have a sense of history not even over a very short period actually and so it's trapped within what happens today the
2:40 am
trouble is you can never understand. just what happened yesterday in the previous week in the previous year in the previous decade and so it's the struggle to recall exactly those exactly those points because you take they are given for the billions of pounds practically every western corporation in called the oil says he's in libya he was fated to be academic institutions and others in this country and this is very very important to recall if we want to have some it's terrible sense about what we might be doing in the region and finally and briefly where do you see this going in there in the short to medium term very difficult to tell i think it is grinding down to a stalemate it's very difficult to see how you could actually hold down the entire population of the east africa of the country and it's also very good to see how well the present circumstances. the rebels and grass in control can take tripoli
2:41 am
and i don't believe that the western intervention fundamentally resolved in a way what is the kind of institutionalizing to make. the situation a civil conflict rather than resolving it so i hope that the comes of. the rebellion because it shows this will. help has done with you because it's a civilian life is actually causing civilian casualties it's like using one. in three. generations to come this far simply hold the balance against against the. we would be better thanks very much a good thing i'll find the resources within the revolution itself which my funds just about would be a big turnaround it would mean chopping up all the people now who are in the leadership of the benghazi rebellion who are pro western who are old gadhafi had
2:42 am
some very long links with the west and that's quite hard to imagine as well so i think the western intervention has made an incredible mess which will last for a long time in libya can we thank you very much. hussein. charge of iraqi citizens. this event brings further assurance to torture chambers and the secret police are gone forever. to get over embassy in kabul. to once occupied afghanistan. now to try sales at guantanamo bay.
