8:30 am
her warm welcome back it's home now i had some lines of the fall like the rest of the crane as victory day celebrations i'm old my blood and nationalist and profound she's slogans that time veterans and prevented them from paying tribute to those who died securing the country's freedom in this second world. naysay golems in libya in the capital destroying several government buildings in
8:31 am
one of the heaviest and strikes in weeks it comes of it off position claims of an anti keep down rising is building up in tripoli some clubs something the government denies. and several militants are killed in a fresh anti terror operations in russia's volatile north caucuses one of them is believed to be behind last year's murder of a muslim religious leader in the republic of dagestan a suicide bomber has blown himself off part of being stalled on a check. up next on as he talks to. us about nato his involvement in libya and it's a suspected use of unconventional but it's. i'm talking to kate hudson from the campaign for nuclear disarmament and c.n.d. said from the off that the military intervention in libya was a mistake and that it could in fact result in a major civil war in libya kate thanks for talking to us now do you see your
8:32 am
prediction is coming true well unfortunately what we will. be taking place that it hasn't been some kind of quick humanitarian swoop that will be over very rapidly and peace and justice will be miraculously introduced unfortunately that hasn't happened and we see now from the initial number of countries involved now we have nato involvement we seem to be more entrenched this doesn't seem to be any visible end in sight it's now widely recognized this is easy in a civil war that of course intervention in the civil war is illegal but i think one of the most tragic occurrence of course is the repeated unfortunately now repeated incidents of the interventionist is actually killing the side stance of the are there to support which just really underlines the complexity of the situation the difficulty of the situation and the absolutely appropriate interests of military
8:33 am
intervention what would you like to see happen out surely you wouldn't want to see nato pulling out and leaving the libyans essentially to a bloody civil war well unfortunately i think that that would indeed be the most appropriate thing to do it's a complex situation it's clear that rather than what was initially suggested which was one mad to say to go around killing his people or masses is now clear that there are two political and military sides and that in a complex situation like that it may be very difficult to move towards a negotiated settlement a political settlement but that is what has to be done military means are not a quick. fix and there is no substitute for that detail kind of negotiation facilitated by the international community yes but that has to say place is going to be hard will have to take place what do we know about the weaponry being used in libya i'm thinking specifically of depleted uranium we've heard prime minister david cameron saying that it's definitely not being used and yet the ministry of
8:34 am
defense still says that it's a necessary part of the arsenal yes that's quite an interesting contradiction that has emerged it's led some people to suspect that david cameron didn't really understand what depleted uranium ore was and that perhaps he was actually talking about cluster munitions but there are very serious concerns that depleted uranium munitions are now being used in libya at least uranium is a byproduct of the uranium enrichment process mystical nuclear power it results in a very very heavy metal very dense heavy metal and it's typically used in armor piercing shells that's why it is popular with armies and both the u.s. and the u.k. do still have a policy of using them to appreciate your a need to be additions to the weaponry which britain is currently deploying is not suitable for british. missions there are land based munitions in our case but
8:35 am
certainly the united states typically uses depleted uranium munitions on a ten airplanes those are the kind of gunships which are essentially a plane constructed around a cannon and they thought are in for thousands of rounds of depleted uranium munitions the top brass u.s. top brass has announced the. gunships are being used then did so scrutiny say do you munitions were being used on them yet so to speak but we have no confidence in that statement because in the past in the past conflicts where do you it's been. notably in the first gulf war in bosnia. in one nine hundred ninety nine and subsequently very extensively in iraq on all those occasions they denied the usage of them and it only became evident afterwards they had indeed a new so we do not have confidence in the current assurance that the eight deployed
8:36 am
in the area are using depleted uranium and we know the terrible consequences for the health of the environment as a result of depleted uranium usage it's a radioactive weaponry form there is great instance sharp increases of birth defects of cancers particularly brain cancers lymphomas and so on in iraq and those are the places as a result we've heard time and time again that these airstrikes are designed to protect civilians but even the tension of pieces uranian gives the license actually well absolutely because depleted uranium is a weapon of indiscriminate effect because of the impact what happens is that when the cheryl or the round hits its target it is explodes and it has what's been described as a kind of aerosol effect of radioactive particles and you can't ever ensure that those particles will only affect military personnel that means that they can
8:37 am
indiscriminately affect civilians and that of course is illegal under international law also could have a very long term effect because of the radioactive qualities has a negative impact also on the environment so these are illegal under international law some countries haven't yet recognized that there is indeed you you've seen on the websites the british government justifies the continued use but it's absolutely unacceptable if you're talking it's an exceptionally in any particular field talking about being there to protect the civilians to use a form which. impacts on them in so devastating a way it's absolutely shocking feasts started off in libya as the people's revolution how do you think that the involvement of nato in naps corrupts the idea of this revolutionary fervor amongst the people well i think it's the legitimacy is
8:38 am
the idea of popular sovereignty that that's been very much the case in all these uprisings recently it's been very much about all canary people coming to the pool finding their political voice and saying that they want things to be run differently and they want the people to go through the ballot box whatever democratic they choose and of course if you have foreign powers intervening on one side or the other in that conflict i think it really withdraws the sovereignty element particularly when you consider the key countries involved in the intervention that's to say initially of course britain and france both have a long history and tradition of colonial intervention in that region and of course the united states since the second world war also has a history of military and political intervention in north africa and the middle east so it's a bit like a throwback almost
8:39 am
a throwback to previous methods from those countries ways of establishing or reestablishing their involvement and control and that is not a good start for water essentially liberating movements in those countries headed towards democracy away from authorities here in government and what do you make of these shifting intentions by the coalition on libya do you think that the u.n. security council resolution has been absolutely they've gone far far beyond the terms of the u.n. security council resolution one seen them juggling with words trying to make what they're doing. fits with the terms of the resolution but of course it's transparently not possible to do that and of course as in the case of intervention in the civil war that is illegal under international law and the un resolution to that effect wouldn't make it legal but in fact that that resolution doesn't cater
8:40 am
for intervention in a civil war we've now seen the rebels saying that they're disappointed in the amount of help that nato has offered them what do you make of that well i said i imagine that they probably don't have experience of dealing with nato were dealing with foreign governments and their their intentions intervention and so on i'm sure that they were hoping that military intervention would mean that they would very rapidly meet their military goals which of course is to come to power in their country and establish democracy in whatever their goals are i'm sure they must've felt that it was a much simpler matter and will be very disappointed to know that not only have their own side been killed by the interventionist forces but that this is a long increasingly protracted struggle with no easy end in sight and i feel for them in their disappointment but. i'm sorry to say that there is no short quick way of solving this without those very details political negotiations that will have to
8:41 am
take place ultimately thanks to a recent government report we now know that the u.k. was selling weapons to get at these regime as little as four months before this trouble starts is the report says that that was a misjudgment of the risk that these weapons would be used on civilians do you accept that as a misjudgment well i think that's rather hard to say i don't quite know what what their intentions were in doing that i don't know if when they sell arms to regimes they have a kind of human rights political democracy and free. and benchmark against which they measure their sales i'm sure they can't have that because if they did they wouldn't sell arms to a very large number of countries that currently do and i'm sure that commercial interests have always come first in those kinds of deals and i very much hope the
8:42 am
will be a real reassessment right now recently you and four hundred thousand others marched in london against the government how much support did you perceive for your hands of the middle east position at that march do you think that public outcry against this intervention is growing stronger yes obviously most people were there or everyone was there really protesting about the government cuts but it's not wasted on paper not most people look back so much money is being spent on one of the points we were making was if there's not money for education for higher education for the libraries for nurseries all these types of things people are being made and employed same is no money why is money always found woodward why is it the nuclear weapons. in afghanistan could also. be justified and i think. very strongly that the majority of people agree with us on this is
8:43 am
a. fairly small minority now supporting the government in its minutes. in its intervention in libya and the majority are not in support of that and i that doesn't surprise me at all because i think particularly since what's what happened in iraq and the government should manikins over that dishonesty about our war aims i think people are now much more critical and much more. to make their own assessment of these things and of course with the development of the internet a lot of information is there for people to arrive at their own judgement on balance the british people in their majority arrive at the judgment for peace. thank you very much thank you.
8:44 am
if. morning's today violence is once again flared up. these are the images kobolds been seeing from the streets of canada. shine corporations are on the day.
