young people demanding freedom of speech and greater presentation but the voice of news according to some has been silenced. the new government is comprised of the elderly that shows what kind of new tunisia we're talking about the main problem is the political parties which have been given a chance to the young people who gave their lives and blood for the revolution the western media has hailed that there is an evolution as the beginning of a new democratic chapter in the history of the country northern africa region a year has passed and people who live here is the very few of the soldiers they have asked for actually taken place they are going to leave everything is still as it used to be the elections have come and gone and the town hasn't seen changes unemployment is still the same if not worse the only things that changed we can now express our opinion but the rouge main goals haven't been accomplished. the fervor which sparked a revolution maybe on a slow burn from now on but if the grievances which is parted for mean so with the

people's inspiration to revolt against it in those carty city was it tunisia. earned a trip to wait for it to new zealand the road to revolution is bracing itself we get more violence at least nine have died and over three hundred fifty have been injured since friday also the army moved in to dispose demonstrate is a military protest. square and. they jerusalem says the army's frightened at the prospect of an egypt being run by islam this but it's. there are a symptom of a wider power struggle that's taking place between the military. led parliament the new parliament that's been elected that's being elected in phases i think that the military is very frightened of the prospect of an egypt that would be led by islamist political parties they're worried about security they're worried about the economy what this could do to tourism and they're very reluctant they've gotten used to being in power for many many years since the fifty's i think they're very
10:05 pm
reluctant to let go of that power i don't think that there actually has been a revolution yet i think that what's happened is that the figurehead of the military regime has been deposed very dramatically certainly that's a hugely significant event it's an earthquake but i thought i would define a revolution as the ousting of the elites from power and i think that the elites in egypt which which are the military i think they're still in power and once the military is gone from power fully gone from power then i think we can describe what we're seeing in egypt as a revolution until then when i think these two sides are stuck in their current position fighting it out through a range of ways and one of these ways is street battles between the military security forces and the people so i think it's going to be unpredictable violent in some cases and it's also going to damage egypt's ability to maintain law and order on its streets. so people have reportedly been killed across syria as the arab league demands damascus let's say an international observers. threatening to turn

10:09 pm
strikes or even out if those people in the old dressed in cars and the guys uniforms this is fairly strange for a strike if they're huge uniformed you know they were just crashing things around. and they were behaving too organized and they weren't attacking at thore just and at least until the police came in it looks like this is being let down. it is now under control we have heard a state of emergency. but this is. because of. reporting there live from kazakhstan eager many thanks indeed. and more on our breaking news story this hour we're hearing more reports that an offshore drilling rig seventy six people on board more than a sword has overturned in the sea of a haunt skin the russian far east and it's not yet known how many may have survived

a concrete shame whatever friendly relations we have if we are not being heard we will answer that's what i had to do it wasn't against obama but against the policy that the us has adopted if they continue to be rude we will respond if they hear our concerns we will work together. in the wake of protests against this month's election results which have been held across russia the president said he saw and heard the people's concerns but he said political changes in the country should be started from within and never be a result of outside pressure one rally wrapped up in moscow on saturday with a turnout of someone on the whole a thousand supporters of the yabloko policy which didn't make it past the seven percent threshold needed to win seats in the state duma moscow's lot in a square where they gathered became the focal point for protests last week when tens of thousands converged to voice their dissatisfaction with the poll results. a russian vote soyuz rocket has successfully blasted out from the european spaceport in french guiana it was carrying french and chilean spice satellites into orbit so
10:12 pm
french observation stations will be gathering military intelligence and providing three d. images of targets so that while they treat an eye in the sky will mainly be used for mapping farmland it's only the second time a russian rocket has launched from outside the former soviet union following a similar successful mission last month also from french guiana after america's space shuttle program was shut down so easy remains the only means of taking people i thought to light into space. and your court ruled that iran provided material support for the nine eleven attacks but the hearing was settled by default because the defendants including iran's supreme leader did not have pain called professor paul sheldon food from california state university says this is part of the campaign to demonize iran and bring plans to attack the country. this is what we call a kangaroo court in america this is totally outrageous its allies by the american government if we want to look for blame we can start with saudi arabia where most
10:13 pm
of the hijackers came from having lived and worked in arab countries i can tell you there is no way that the arab government did not know what was going on in saudi arabia we could look to germany where many of them lived we could look at american flight schools we could look at f.b.i. agents reported disappear ears and spurious did nothing. iran has no involvement in this whatsoever no they are neoconservative warmongers are trying to demonize iran even more and build up to a war and unfortunately the average american voter knows so little we know congresswoman michele bachmann a couple weeks ago was able to say that she would close the american embassy and bring home the ambassador and staff and that wasn't subjected to great ridicule every american i've talked to so far doesn't know anything wrong with that statement right after nine eleven i was shocked that the iranian leadership said they would permit american military to use their airspace to attack afghanistan
10:14 pm
that they would help any downed pilots they that they would help supply anything else they bent over backwards to help america beyond belief that iranian journalists had been murdered by the taliban there was no love lost between the taleban and the iranians. a u.s. military court has opened pretrial hearings in the case of alleged whistleblower bradley manning by rejecting a defense request that the presiding officer should step down they claim his other role investigating the found we can make. private manning who served as an intelligence analyst in baghdad is accused of leaking classified military and diplomatic data to the whistle blowing web site has already been held in detention for nineteen months and could face life in prison or even execution of convicted kevin. bradley manning support network says the soldier will receive a fair trial after president obama has stated that he is guilty. we think that
10:15 pm
manning is not someone who is a traitor he was. documents to foreign enemies he didn't profit from them he is accused of giving them to the media what he gave to me were allegedly were very low level documents low security internet i probably should not have been declassified documents at all were also worried i mean i can't get a fair trial president obama has already announced that he's guilty he's the commander in chief it's a command structure in the military cerebrally who is involved in the judge the jury under president obama's command and their careers on the land line they're no choice but to say meeting is guilty if they want to keep their military career since the president already said he's guilty a soldier who's in that situation is a choice of ignoring the nuremberg principles and becoming complicit in these crimes or exposing those crimes if meaning is guilty of what he's accused what do you get what he's guilty of is telling the truth telling the truth so the american what we can see what the u.s. military and state department actually are doing this trial is embarrassment to the u.s. military and the united states it shows
10:16 pm
a great deal of fear of the truth and fear of the truth is what's driving this the prosecution. at least fifty people have all tree protests is how going to rest is until they broke into a private balkan manhunt and as the movement said month anniversary the demonstrators who were evicted from their security paul had called his last moments attempted to set up a new in the city's do our city park service that ripped holes in the fence around the product grounds and used this to climb inside police just past protesters claiming that the occupiers could not call in the shop to enter the hall where turning violent. information on that right thing you had to a website. that you can also find out how the occupy rallies and it was new quad downs in north carolina and iowa. from the u.s. as well you know where the whole thing is only relevant to new york hospital that what at that time it was subjective view of the news with the mainstream media
10:17 pm
being. are you sick of the media being biased this week let's talk about that do you feel like the media's biased sure they are just going to pick the right one that you want to listen to is the right one around one no. you're going to listen to them all and make up your own mark when do you case a political party is it government is in power i can't. see things on the media i absolutely do think it's important for the new sutra to be on bias but unfortunately everybody brings their own slant to their reporting i don't think it's avoidable even though it's desirable of it's possible for anybody to be on bias so why would we expect a news organization to be unbiased because they're professionals it was the journalists who set up but they're still human. well they have
10:18 pm
a lot of stuff you either read or the news is untrue and a lot of it to a lot of it isn't that a shame that the news would be untrue. but the thing is it sells papers and it sells news and people watch it people watch the channels that bother you no not at all just the way the world. believe what you want to believe do you think it would help people be more informed if news organizations admitted their bias. i think sober people wouldn't believe them and then they'd turn whoever was biased anyway there's a lot of people that think the some channels are fair and balanced other channels aren't leaning in any direction well i mean i think we all know that's not true right we all this into the news every single day and we all hear the ridiculousness on both sides yeah but i think fox particularly will report both sides in both views and they have people of opposing views on very frequently so you don't think they're biased that i think they themselves in my b.s.
10:19 pm
slant but i think it's a moniker that people have put on them. i don't there's no good here but they are they are but that's ok they should just admit it they do i think i think some know they're fair and balanced baseball owners and each person should be these experts they come in every individual has his own personal bias you get away from that maybe instead of demanding our media be less biased we just start demanding they admit their bias and maybe they'll at least be accountable for the opinion they report. and more news in brief for you this hour massive floods triggered by an unexpected topical storm have least four hundred fifty people in the southern philippines with schools more missing many residents were asleep when the floodwaters tool through towns overnight after hours of torrential rain tons of silence have sought refuge in evacuation centers across several provinces. ship carrying more than three
