9:13 am
what we see is the program crisis it's very soon it to see these things developing but it was more planned within the euro because different countries like greece and germany are not fitting into one currency and indeed end of the day you will have this is what we have now we have violence on the street it is not possible to realize everybody knows this the whole problem that we have in the eurozone cannot be solved by rescue packages cannot. cannot be solved any. it can only be solved by a breakup of the euro that means that germany pulls out and the worst of the countries in the use you in the very new euro zone will devaluate their money then they are again competitive against the world then they can bring. the greek crisis on the top of the wave of warrior it's causing for europe are all up for
9:14 am
discussion and people cross talk of the two sides of the single currency debate making their cases i hear on the fifteen thirty g.m.t. . i think the french people for example already tired of paying for the problems in greece and i think that's the general concept of the eurozone is now everybody's frustrated paying for everyone else's mismanagement of the euro was founded on a pie in the sky idea that ended up being an economic straight jacket and nobody can escape at this point that's the problem and working against the economy for political reasons just because everyone has a great political will i'm not sure how long that can last when people aren't working there are going hungry you know i think we're seeing it already with some of the election results that the people have just write a great show we don't we don't have people going hungry in europe in big numbers no no couple that's not there times are hard and we're really people are unable to find jobs that would mean there's nobody there is you know going to greece if they choose there's no email you really if you're willing to tell these to believe that
9:15 am
there's nobody going hungry you're saying there's nobody and related issues but we're not back into the 1930's no no really you know you know you just say you know what was the reason not greece or the value we were in trouble if you were in trouble it would be trading lower than the dollar. you can talk later in the day here on the controversial video footage has surfaced showing men in a waffen s.s. uniform teaching children and latvian kindergarten this in a country which holds annual parades to see veterans which is widely seen as an attempt to twist historical truth about the second world war correspondent in eastern europe alexey got a chef ski as the story. we understand that this incident happened on the march the sixteenth in the law to be in kindergarten we see two men wearing s.s. uniforms waffen s.s. uniforms walking into a kindergarten before and what they describe as apache or to bring
9:16 am
a lesson to three four year old kids they tell stories about the law to be an s.s. legion which was fighting back in the 1940's on the german side against the allied forces but not only they were wearing s.s. uniforms but they also brought weapons from the nine hundred forty s. the ones which were used by the s.s. legion of law to be in the war those war machine guns and even grenades and they even let the kids play with these weapons this incident is not a one off for this baltic states certainly every year on march the sixteenth they are organizing marches all of the former s.s. fighters the s.s. veterans certainly this has been causing widespread condemnation in russia and in many post soviet states because of the attempts of the baltic states to rewrite history to glorify naziism certainly this new incident adds new more fuel to this fire and it's interesting to see whether there will be any reaction coming from the european union which a lot of a certainly a member of because just as in russia and in the post soviet space everything
9:17 am
related to nazis is outlawed in europe so it is interesting to see whether this incident in the kindergarten which has already outraged many critics and russia will cause some controversy across the european continent. reporting right there and just a moment the aussie wild update but for now the u.k. has been branded as a police state by civil liberty campaigners heavy handed security measures just ahead of the of the big games plans include high velocity missiles being stationed on buildings close to the olympic park some people have even been banned from the games altogether laura smith explains. the olympic torch is lit and on its journey to london accompanying it fear uncertainty and code red level security impinging on the lives of people from london to las vegas that's where to milk in lives he's supposed to be in the u.k. training martial arts enthusiastic but as he was boarding his flight he discovered
9:18 am
the home office had excluded him from the country on the grounds that his self-defense course might incite vigilanteism being that i have a fifteen year history of coming to the u.k. training thousands of people from the u.k. and also european clients coming into london and had no incidents whatsoever in and the rhetoric that's being used is absolutely inconsistent with what i teach it's a level of paranoia that increases the closer the olympics gets but london a simon mall won't get anywhere near the games he protested the building of basketball courts on a green space near the olympics and was slapped with a control order that forbids him from going near the olympics or any other celebration taking place this summer he faces five years in prison if he disobeys these that legislation is being used to prevent. lawful and
9:19 am
understandable protest to aspects of the games which are on them across the koran popular. furthermore these are just this legislation won't prevent people from disrupting the games as to what it will do is it will give the ability of the thirty's to to punish people more severely i think it's insane i think that it shows the prevailing. consciousness in governments and on the world which is one of the well to fear and control luckily for simon he. he doesn't live near the stadium but would betide anyone who does this building's less than a kilometer from the eleven pick park the plan is to station a battery of high velocity missiles on the roof of this block of flats for two months over the olympics a proposal that's already triggered an explosive reaction resident brian whelan
9:20 am
learned of the plans from a leaflet pushed through his door late one night some people are worried about the effect the property values some people think it might be building a target for terrorists some people think that it's discipline and is not secure enough some people don't want to be turned into some sort of military base. will really affect the quality of life. might my big argument is. nobody consulted him or he never spoke to us the two thousand and twelve games have spawned a level of security that's unprecedented seen by many as overwhelming and repressive the question many british people are asking is if it's like this already what's it going to be like when the olympic circus finally rolls into town laura smith london. straight to egypt for the r.t. world update now and egypt's two election front runners have squared off in the country's first ever presidential debate mubarak era foreign minister mussa and
9:21 am
moderate islamist abdel moneim aboul fotouh both challenge each other in a four hour debate over religions rolled into mockery of c o two are among thirteen candidates running in the election gyptian experts have already begun casting their votes with the rest of the country going to the polls will be on may twenty third. the former chief executive of news international has told a british inquiry into media friendship with the country's prime minister david cameron rebecca brooks said she received messages of support from him after stepping down from rupert murdoch's company in the wake of the phone hacking scandal. set up the ethics inquiry large in response to revelations that the news of the world had hacked into the phone of a murdered british schoolgirl. well it claims that iraq had weapons of mass destruction led to the us invasion in two thousand and three in about ten minutes
9:22 am
time now here on nazi our special report shows how bogus assertions were used to start a fool scale conflict here's a preview. the people of the united states and their friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder is a regime as an active program to acquire and develop nuclear weapons and let there be no doubt about we know for a fact that there are weapons there. this were just being carried out into the direction of dr david kay respected scientist and former u.n. inspector was leading the weapons search in iraq we are determined to take this apart we have a tremendous a group of dedicated american men and women involved in this with the best assets of the intelligence community and provide. data cheney is not going to be done with this for quite some time david kay wants more time and he says it could take
9:23 am
another six to nine months to make a definitive finding ministration is asking congress for hundreds of millions more six hundred million dollars to fund a continuing search have not yet found shiny pointy things that i would call a weapon before we can draw from conclusions we need to let the iraq survey group complete its work. we were all wrong probably in my judgment. and that is most disturbing. sometimes the true patriots takes the unpopular course but helps the country and for the stakes and even if they come this way at least from patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels and i think these are scoundrels they have no argument now they have no defense for what they did the country is in a terrible international security situation but i think it's perilous so they're attacking the patriotism of other.
