sacrifices we just cut the food stamp project by twelve billion dollars we have multiple experimental ongoing programs in the defense department each of which is large enough to offset the food stamp cuts and i think if we have forty one million people already who are dependent on government aid for food getting food to them is probably a first priority but defense secretary leon panetta is looking further afield for his priorities we are a nation at war. we face a broad and growing range of security threats and challenges. your military must be prepared to confront from networks to rogue nations that are making efforts to turn in a nuclear capability. with a rising power. but only just look at those to determine whether or not we will in fact maintain a strong defense here and throughout the world eyes on the world while citizens

6:16 am
peaceful weekend protest against the fatal shooting of a man by police it is in the british capital announce joins us live we're at how police brought the situation under control. well obviously it's much less attractive to shops in the daylight and i think that's part of the one of the factors that has brought this situation much more under control this monday morning we all still as you say hearing reports of pockets of on right sort of groups if you ranging around particularly in the areas of brixton in south london and and fields and then the surrounding area in the north but mostly what's underway at the moment is is a massive cleanup operation after last night's looting and rioting that happened in large parts of north london it started off in the enfield area and then seem to spread outwards towards the city center and also broke out in the south of the river thames here in brixton. parts of those towns are still closed off for
6:17 am
police are treating me entire area as a crime scene they talk all the pavements they're examining the broken glass from the shop windows and picking up any clues that they can find as to who did this in order to try to make arrests they've made one hundred sixty arrests altogether over the last couple of days. of these disturbances police cars have been smashed up and attacked police themselves have had. reports of petrol bombs having been thrown at police and certainly they were attacked the bricks by riots is shops with that far too and looted now i was in enfield last night where that the center of the violence started and there were guying you ranging through the streets smashing it right when he actually whatever they could attacking shopfronts particularly shop fronts with attractive things inside computers stores phone stores bike shops you
6:18 am
saw people making off with televisions literally as big as they could carry i saw one man making off with a vacuum cleaner so literally they were just grabbing everything they could in some cases loading them into the cause and then driving off with the loot you. an attack pharmacies in enfield town center and also starbucks coffee shops and staff and the violence then quickly spread to other areas is the travel between this small area in north london and the party they were communicating on twitter and blackberry to tell each other where they were and where the police weren't and i don't mind telling you that it was it was pretty scary up and for the last night it seems like the violence really spiraled out of control and quickly why did it sound so destructively. well it started off on saturday nights in top what started off as a peaceful protest outside the police station following the fatal shooting by police of a man called mark duggan there about three people holding that story three hundred people holding a silent vigil outside the police station we're hearing reports that what sparked
6:19 am
it was a member of the police attacking a seventeen year old girl with a bottle that quickly circulated around the crowd and we're hearing that that's what sparked this violence at these areas that we're talking about particularly tottenham where this all sparked off it was really sort of a sort of sprawl of gun powder keg this this fatal shooting of mark duggan. it's an area of massive social privation there's a lot of. police is relationship with the community and there has been for many many years the police in that area and in many other areas in an operations stop and search policy which basically means they can stop and search the belongings of anyone that looks george even if they haven't actually done anything and people in those areas particularly ethnic minorities feel that they're unfairly targeted by these policies there's also huge amounts of unemployment talking one of the highest on the youth unemployment figures in london and living off benefits has become
6:20 am
a way of life in these people some of them are literally hopeless they live on benefits at the moment they see no time in the future in which they will will have a job and be able to better themselves so people do you feel ignored and neglected in these communities they're not making a political point we should make that clear these are looters and they're criminals and they're running around grabbing whatever they can but lots of people are saying that it's pretty important a political point is taken from this that these people feel disassociated from society and this should last into great hold on policing and social integration. of course we'll continue to keep an eye on the situation in london for us live from the british capital are to use more. now london's definitely a city on the tabs right now as we heard and there's one group that has an extreme solution to its troubles as we report dot com hard line muslims want to lay down

6:25 am
a lot of times the euro is a really taking it to the brink and being able to pull back from the post last week again we've seen the u.s. be downgraded by standard and poor's to weaken losing that aaa rating the first time in u.s. history as of today to cut a deal to raise the debt ceiling in the u.s. right up until literally the eleventh hour so there's still a lot of uncertainty at the moment is take the markets will be able to ride this out and find some stability we've had in the deputy finance minister here in russia russia doesn't intend to change its investment policy. the u.s. downgrade we have a lot of analysts that this is remember only one of the major three ratings agencies has downgraded the u.s. has seen. small symbolic then necessarily having this huge apocalyptic impact as some people were carrying today it's a more of a ripple effect rather than the ways but there are people who say you know this is really challenging that is that since they were in place that the u.s.
