by tomorrow nato will be out of posts gadhafi in libya but the regime that helped him to power is left with a nationwide gun problem the late colonel's arsenal was plundered during eight months of civil war and how those who were once united to defeat him are split over their agendas international observers say infighting is already happening between former rebels who are armed to the teeth artie's and he said ali reports now from libya. the war is over but the weapons are fully loaded. human rights watch has expressed grave concern about leftover arm in libya their number one fear warehouses thought to hold ground to air missiles which could in the wrong hands take down passenger aircraft it's through mates oh and nato allies in the region which these weapons have been flooding libya and also libya is quite a world country anyway the population has has quite a lot of light weapons in its possession and those light weapons are becoming
a heavy burden on the national transitional council now relying on an army of former rebels for security we try to control the bends and we check if there is somebody has work and we ask him if he has a shoe in for this we are not. checkpoints have been set up across tripoli to check that those carrying weapons have proper documentation and those who do have the paperwork are being called on by the national transition committee to return their arms the question now what if they don't and what does that mean for parts gadhafi libya and its stability and now as you can see is being secured here everything is under control and the only word thing that you will make some mechanism how to give back the weapons but we see something very different i asked the head commander what the plan is to disarm the population. i swear i don't
know if you. could let the select the internet as i said at the home we have some of the. tents. and a makeshift arms collection center that covers one neighborhood in the capital we are shown there. these are the weapons people brought to me today not many walk down one block in tripoli and you'll see twice as many fire. so you know how many weapons there are in libya i think just like have to have incentive yeah i think everybody have a weapon some think the front of arms in the country could spell disaster ahead in the vacuum after gadaffi imposed revolt chaos as groups fight out vicious battles of power. what you have now in libya is scores of armed factions who have no respect for each other and who have no respect for mates
or actually either they've opportunistically used to achieve some aims and nato has been foolish enough to go along with this so i think what we're going to see now is an intensification of the civil war between increasingly the factions which have overthrown but the gadhafi regime. and he's now a r t tripoli. libya's national transitional council which was never elected is now in power well some of its members are ex gadhafi loyalists and many of us fighters have links to al qaeda middle east commentator call cheryl thinks libya started into a volatile country. people have way too much faith in the n t c which is quite obviously not in control of this generation on the ground in libya at the moment and in fact you can see the sentient between the entity command and some of the more islamist led groups on the ground and in fact if you see some of the fighters on the ground they have the characteristics of islamic fighters that had
a long kind of history of from afghanistan onwards so this is all original identity has full control on the ground is not actually correct and i would say that the events that we are seeing them could be personal vendettas could be their normal run of wars but maybe another party in libya could of the presented their evolution of the aspirations of the villages imitation for change better that and done that entity that still has a lot of former gadhafi associates and cronies within it so that's really the nub of the problem. well colonel gadhafi may be dead and buried but for some western leaders there are some skeletons that probably won't stay in the closet the late dictator's most influential song signals self over to the war crimes court and could spill the beans on how liberal cash was supported to help local law sarkozy into power among others more than that and hour's time on our team. syria's president is warning western nations that intervening in his country will
cause an earthquake that will tear the middle east but charlotte told britain's sunday telegraph newspaper that international involvement could turn his country into another afghanistan his comments follow the u.n. latest call for the repression is to end after a week and a clash was claimed a reported fifty five arab league's also weigh in and with strong criticism and would lead syrian officials later on sunday the u.n. that believes more than three thousand people have perished in the unrest since march but this is a serious writer and democracy can be an artificial kyllo things most people there don't want a military solution to the crisis reza something we're against military intervention whether it's a day tomorrow or in ten years' time even if the regime is to ny late every one of us would still be against military intervention we fight for freedom and we don't want to add external slavery to our domestic law we don't want it to become a part of the struggle between the international and internal forces syrians are
peaceful they want to progress under conditions of freedom and development and they don't want to turn into a concentration camp a poly gone philology country. brian becker from the u.s. based antiwar coalition answer believes that unlike libya syria is too strong for the alliance to intervene and that's why the west wants to spark a civil war to bring about regime change. more using the same lingo the same scenario the syrian opposition is borrowing a page from the playbook for libya they know that they can come to power only with the advance with the support with the intervention to multiple means of the nato powers of the western powers and i think what we can tell the syrian people is look at what happened in libya the issue of a no fly zone sounds like a way to defend civilians it's really a way to begin the war to begin military operations against the syrian air force or
air defenses i think the first step and this is the plan of the obama administration is not direct military intervention but to promote a civil war inside of syria i think they realize that the syrian government is substantially stronger militarily and within the arab world as compared to khadafi but they can use the human beings who have grievances valid or not to be the human materiel for a civil war and i think the u.s. government officials signaling the syrian opposition and the syrian president that they should learn the lesson of libya is a clear message begin the civil war they want to weaken syria first as a as a prelude to a more direct intervention for regime change. still to come this hour on our team another outbreak of violence in the middle east report on how a deadly exchange of fire between israel and gaza is overshadowed installed bounced protests at government spending. and the whistle is blown over
the side this forces suspend operations as it struggles to five growing financial pressure. first score some demonstrators supporting the occupy wall street movement have been arrested across the u.s. overnight riot police in denver moved detaining activists who refused to leave their camp and earlier police used pepper spray to disperse the crowds while at least thirty people were arrested in the states of portland tennessee and california after police want to enforce curfews removing protesters belongings it was made sure threatening demas in new york after the city was hit by a seasonal snow blizzard however the activists say they're ready to and stab harsh weather conditions to make their point and as reports from washington the occupy protesters are serious and their determination. the peace nationwide movement
that turned violent overnight in oakland. police attacked protesters with tear gas stun grenades. flash bombs and rubber bullets we had been there for weeks we had been taking care of ourselves there been no incidents with the police and they came in one of the most terrifying shows of force that i've ever seen in my entire life and they came in and they either flushed everyone out of the camp or the rest of them and then they began to systematically sample all of the tents cut them apart and just need people really really angry a former u.s. marine an iraqi war veteran was seriously injured by a tear gas canister that police fired. footage of the wounded veteran and police brutality spread quickly. the shock of it galvanizing the nation and the occupy movement across the country. google says the company received requests from local law enforcement agencies to remove youtube videos of police brutality they did not
comply the stronger of forcible response five establishment the stronger the movement will get the larger the protest will become the protesters through these past six weeks of being careful not to taint the movements reputation with violence by a march most reports suggest that this movement has been almost entirely peaceful but some in the u.s. media use the night of violence you know clinton to portray the protesters as radicals and more violence from the occupiers a lot of these people are professional agitators a good number of these people are radicals no doubt about it you might ask how radical was this elderly woman in a wheelchair who was tear gassed by police or jasper father of two who's working on his ph d. at the university of california berkeley you know they characterize you know. the. perspective of the movement as the marginal and radical and fringe in order to
discredit it this moment really is about all americans it's not just about people that have a story we've been poor this is about now it's to the middle class that is starting to feel the impact of corporate greed that has run this country for so long as the movement grows bigger and more structured it's becoming harder to ignore the message of the campaigners who call themselves the ninety nine percent and protest against corporate crime and government complicity protesters tends marshner and throughout the country there will be more the movement is only expanding several weeks ago police crackdown on protesters with pepper spray this week it was tear gas and stun grenades protesters now want to hit big business where it hurts a general strike next week demanding banks and corporations shut down. for a day but will the police response be anyone more brutal crackdown i'm going to check our reporting for washing our teeth. over keeping a close eye on the protests that are hitting the united states from coast to coast

a two month. knesset the parliament is returning from his recess we just hope that they'll reconsider their budgetary considerations the problem has been that the budgetary considerations have been about parties and politics they've been about leaving the tycoons he seemed to control everything we want the budgetary considerations to consider just the general good of the country here in israel it's very very important to realize we are not in economic recession our problem isn't that we don't have enough money our problem is that it's being mismanaged the government decisions about what to do with the money is bad but the lives that are . thirty when you hear the cries of people here and really they slogan is the people demand of social justice people here saying that the government can do what it wants to attract attention but they certainly will not give up on what they say are very legitimate demands. and coming up in a few minutes and israeli politician explains what's hampering

magazines believes it's only a sticking plaster solution and greece needs agitating from the euro zone. it's just buying time this is really not the everybody has been asking for i would describe it as a water pistol is of course prevents for the moment that we really get to a kind of thing escalation of the greek adept level which is now growing in the direction of hundred and eighty percent of g.d.p. but you cannot call this a structural resolution to the different greek problems they are a little bit afraid to really bite the bullet here because if you look at it closely there is only one solution for greece and the truth has been put on the table already several months ago that for greece to leave the euro zone but that is a decision everybody's afraid of and what has for example not been discussed now but which is fairly much on the minds of several of the european leaders is that
there is a huge problem brewing in portugal because this country is going down to greet the greek growth quite rapidly now so if one does the action today on greece one immediately has to put a similar kind of action into operation with respect the board to go. well the e.u. may have agreed how big the bailout basket should be but now it has to fill it with cash and to do with leaders are looking to china and set the fund chief there to generate a bit of economic enthusiasm but beijing's hardly jumping at the chance economists there believe china is treading carefully so it doesn't throw good money after bad . we'll draw in the back of all the savior is bob china will not be a white knight in this regard because china is not very satisfied satisfied with the. those that the austerity plan didn't come on the right time and there are still the war between different stakeholders within within this form not.
