6:00 am
i am. europe follows the u.s. in slumping sanctions on syria over the crackdown on anti-government protesters while critics accuse the west of seeking regime change in order to control the region and. the european union may seen in light of the seizure of the un security council all giving it more power as a single brawl it could damage the strength to some member states in the pedants. also georgians have to turn to the international human rights course to get justice for a murder committed by high ranking official is experiencing an inherent floor of the
6:01 am
country's much transit legal system. and. a very warm welcome gee this is ours he like from moscow with me honest it's international pressure is mounting on syria with the government's intensified crackdowns against any opposition conway on the further scrutiny both following in americans that steps your house up fresh sanctions on the country's top officials including an all troubled by. these reports are all concerns it has very little to do with the promotion of peace. rebels clash with security forces hundreds die and the west calls for the bloodshed to stop sanctions slapped down and arms sales in baggage but this isn't libya's it's syria and it's following
6:02 am
a road map that made to just one place for its african arab neighbor nato intervention who watches it's a regime dissent that tantalizing western leaders there's a greater washington. aspect of anger trailing the syrian government. the e.u. has put a freeze on assets of thirteen top government military and intelligence leaders topping the list is this man the syrian president's younger brother he's described as the principal overseer of violence against protesters but no sanctions are being applied to the man calling the shots president assad himself to some assad is a convenient ally for the west although that's what was being said about gadhafi in recent years before the sanctions kicked in. member states including. perhaps
6:03 am
it's still possible to do business with russia. western educated. wife as well so they see. the force of opera. in the country the e.u. says could be censored if p. fails to stop the brutal crushing of opposition but he needn't worry the arab lawyers association says no one his staff would keep assets in their own names so sanctions takes less u.s. and international community is being reduced from an international organization into a domestic police authority where by you begin to freeze assets of individuals sometimes the individuals. and you will but it's a it's a gimmick which is used in most of the instances and this gimmick in part is counterproductive because it just make noises. and i think it is this credit
6:04 am
effective or not europeans have grown camillia with imposing sanctions but that was relatively easy to apply to libya which had long been suffering isolation even among arab states but syria has friends the west might be reluctant to provoke not only syria is you know very sensitive environment as there is. if you can situation situation who are peaceful situation with israel you also have all these connections that syria has with iran you can even use has been a lot as well with the palestinian have as we should we very dangerous or full communicate. with them unitary intervention in syria we know and turn it seems to president bashar assad's regime the u.k. led the charge in pushing for a quicker response to the syrian crackdown and british foreign secretary william hague said he welcomes the sanctions but so battle weary britons this looks all too
6:05 am
familiar it's more than six weeks since sanctions on libya were judged to failure and the public face the role of the diplomatic syria can only prompt a similar fate and see the mediterranean gunships sail east nor ever its arty. functions on more of a struggle for the protection of civilians according to come from the group called civilians for peace in the bia. the west would like the syrian regime like the libyan regime and like with hizbollah and the palestinian resistance to disappear yesterday now achieving that is a whole different kettle of fish i think where the west is at now in this historical moment everyone knows that the uni polar world has finished entering into another take on our world on the west is panicking about how they can sit back and allow the break nations of the global south just to rise up or for them to just
6:06 am
to go without without a fight so now is really the historic opportunity for western germany to try to pull back a little bit of world domination that they've lost in the last decade but frankly even if they did go into syria which i don't think they will i think the syrian regime will hold tight but even if they did i mean what's happened the last decade iraq and afghanistan yes they got rid of saddam hussein yes they got rid of the taliban but what is the net result the net result was they were bogged down morally politically economically diplomatically they were completely completely outmaneuvered by the global south and rises the global south and the bric nations in particular and this what happened in the next several years coming as we're well heavy shelling has been reported in syria since your home was the scene of the largest antigovernment protests in recent days human rights groups believe within seven hundred fifty people killed. almost two months ago which seems
6:07 am
that it's now a london based specializing in middle east policy says the syrian regime needs reforms to prevent the bloodshed. the americans are offering president assad one last chance to see if the dictator can dictate so i believe that the syrian regime really has to have a sign of who from within from whether you call them reformers or what else to try and prevent essentially great a bloodbath happening in cities that are arrested because it seems that the cells are creating a momentum and it's that momentum that the regime is found impossible to stall it's offered a variety of carrots including most famously getting rid of the emergency law but it appears now it simply only have sticks left in its cupboard so it is a deeply worrying trend as far as the syrian people are concerned well in another country lebanon may be a thing of the past if their legacy still remains if you do what documentary about lebanese volunteers who put their lives at risk the country's unexploded nine.
6:08 am
a cluster. and inside the container you have maybe a small bomb and you can have anywhere from dozens up to hundreds of them there's a huge market right now for battle area clearing because there are a lot of countries in the world that are contaminated by unexploded ordinance. and so you got these companies and n.g.o.s that have basically sprung up that have an expertise to get rid of these weapons what they do is they go to these places they will hire local train the locals how to do the clearance they'll let the locals basically take ownership because you know they have a vested interest in clearing their homes and they're putting themselves at risk every single day when they go out there to clear areas of these was. a.
6:09 am
big. rock hard. european and. the weather they want my right to come and grab sense about the u.n. security council as all season reports the new been met with come to make shit from some members who believe that is not going the union it is the sets. there's been a horrified response around the world and here in brussels the idea of giving the european union a permanent seat on the un security council would allow the e.u. to look at the world security decisions both britain and france this is the first step. of their permanent place on the council. and they will move many other countries for example india's billion plus people
6:10 am
less worthy of a voice than it used five hundred million giving the seats as well as from some brits and also of the many parts of the world notably africa and latin america who were on the security council's composition is already boy towards the west this move was proposed by a member of the european parliament from spain one of the biggest. seats where it. claims the current financial difficulties corporation in foreign policy. there's no unity in the european union in politics. we've seen that again just recently over the invasion of libya and the same with the portugal's economy the un general assembly has just voted to give the european union as a single block much greater powers this move to get a permanent place on the u.n. security council is expected to receive much more a position. with the e.u.
6:11 am
wants a moral authority for itself on a level position of power is. already great and expensive large. and with an adult in about twenty minutes. we have to look at the expense of parliament itself and there is a very. very simple example why the european parliament should have two seats one in brought so. and the other will instruct work it costs additional almost three hundred million euros per year if you have to move once in a six week from brussels to strasburg so let's have only one c. and we give and we can show my perfect example to the people of europe that we are able to save the taxpayers money.
6:12 am
