4:06 am
it saddens me that. right now there's a chance you might lose everything that we know in this country and there's really not much we can do after work. if all the europeans know the cold dead and would be dead but. why do they lend this money plus don't they want the money but the thing with the situation right now it is that we don't feel real secure about anything but our salaries our health and you know in my aids thing about the children going to make and of the season so i have to do it from them from now it's a really sad because. everybody here things that you know the things could be better there's something more than the there's something north very very angry because there is a lot of unemployment in greece now. that the people in greece are
4:07 am

4:09 am
well lose their aaa rating and some point in the future what they do have to do of course other than just daily nelson countries and putting up some defenses in the short term is have a really good look at the trees and the infrastructure of the whole project and see if there is some reform they can make it more workable of course when you have seventeen different very different economies in very different countries setting one uniform military policy is always going to be haphazard and when the e.c.v. itself counseling the country then it's going to be very problematic. and still ahead for you this hour when confrontation is not an option. we look at how israel's military muscle flexing and a fearsome foreign policy is turning its own people against signing up for service . and why russia is a restive a north caucasus he is rising from the ruins with a powerful p.r. machine helping to attract thousands to the region. for activists protesting
4:10 am
against america's plans to use a new south korean base for the u.s. navy have been arrested at the site opposition to the base is mainly from locals who fear it could destabilize south korea's relations with china as well as that damaging the environment i just matthew holy who is near the base says the voices of discontent are going unheard with government not playing fair. this was a small demonstration we went to the conference to deliver a message. about their concerns it was dominant leaders and it's the are small and there's our gravity's being held but disabled people at least stations where there aren't we and it seems this is going to be one of the largest military bases in the world the needle bases we could pass city it is a size twenty large destroyers two aircraft carriers. and it will be outdated aegis realistic missile defense system where there are less than three hundred miles away
4:11 am
from the chinese mainland this is a very attractive location in the united states you know what sorry initially there was a boat at least eighty seven people. and struction at the base protested they held another boat ninety four percent of the residents said they didn't want the base government said that they wanted that results about both recently the presidential government guarantee eighteen demanded that construction be stopped and military said no inviting five years. incarcerated the mayor is currently in prison but i fear is that it was just about every legal aachen were fighting a very sound rational nonviolent resistance government simply isn't listening there russia has issued a clear warning to israel over a possible attack on iran the foreign minister was responding to the israeli president's suggestion that a military strike on iran is more likely than diplomacy sergey lavrov said any such attack would be a serious mistake with unpredictable consequences so you can watch dog is about to
4:12 am
report on iran's nuclear activities where it is thought it will reveal computer models of an atomic warhead and other weapons related work israel's main ally the u.s. says it will focus on diplomacy but is ready to keep all options open political analyst i bet you it says washington is unlikely to support israel's push for an attack. in china when mao and the chinese got nuclear weapons mao made direct threats to nuke the united states and of course when johnson explored military options etc and of course they didn't take the chinese nuclear weapons out so i think you can deter this we have thousands of nuclear warheads russia has thousands of nuclear warheads i think the iranians could do what japan has done because japan has taken it all the way up to actually building a nuclear weapon and they haven't done it they've shown they have the capability it's or maybe that's what iran is trying to do maybe around never build a weapon they've shown that they can design a warhead that will fit on a missile hitting the missile over here we've seen north korea had
4:13 am
a lot of problems with that so we're not in the panic mode yet but i think what the foreign minister said there was absolutely correct there's no good military option here if you want to make sure you get all the stuff you have to launch a ground invasion which would make the invasion of iraq look nice right and it looked easy runs a much bigger country the terrain the people there are not in a good mood towards america etc you have a lot of a lot of problems and now of course they could attack by air israel or the united states could do that and that's the that's the fear i think but there's just no good option it's israel's increasingly tough talk of it's driving away the very people it would need to defend itself that's on top of recent aggressive foreign policy moves such as the ground invasion of lebanon in two thousand and six and gaza three years ago well it's clear reports on the israeli conflicts that are repairing its conscripts. for years it's been a cornerstone of the country's security at these days there's
