to teach me the creation of why you should care about you and. this is why you should care what you only. e.u. flogs but enough of the believe in the president's agenda is diverted grounded on such an action dubbed by latin american leaders kidnapping and humiliation for the entire continent. you feel does seem to do the bidding of the united states of america which infringes on national sovereignty and does leave the country to be a colony of greater political power. the alarms raised over a year of being nothing short of washington's. changing of the guards the upsetter braze as the former egyptian leaders fall from grace and are restive what is amiss lick their wounds before what many predict will be a new clutch. this
10:01 am
is coming to live from moscow hello and welcome to the program latin american countries are saving over the decision to ground on reports of that search and jet carrying they believe in president over rumors whistleblower edward snowden was on board almost the entire continent surrounding the levy a schools. hospitals have. things are not looking so good for the diplomats european diplomats accredited in latin american countries some of them may actually be expelled in particular those working in believe the that will be more clear after the emergency summit of they want us to organization which unites most of the latin american countries which will be held on thursday some
10:02 am
statements will be produced there but following this nightmare flight of ever more or less through europe last night we've seen an unprecedented solidarity from all the american countries on the matter they've all been very critical of what happened with the believing president now the president of argentina cristina the commissioner said that this was the humiliation of the entire south american continent president of venezuela nicolas maduro said this was a dangerous disproportionate and unacceptable aggression a joint statement coming from the colombian government stated that the airspace denial is an act of aggression and last but not least the venezuelan foreign minister described it this. is denial as fascist well this kind of criticism has been coming from all levels in level latin america even from a terrorist organization the fark which describe it as a an act of infamy but clearly the most offended side here were the bolivians with the foreign minister describing this as equating in this to. a kidnapping attempt.
10:03 am
this is an unprecedented situation this goes against international conventions and treaties this goes against international law and all the rules that have been established over a long period of time this shows disrespect of the country's independence by. the countries involved in hijacking president morales his plane and making a mistake they think that others steal attack invade territories wage wars impose embargoes and go back on their room would just like they do the current policy of the usa and their allies in nato aims at ensuring their rules. security at the expense of somebody else's. we've also received a reaction coming from the russian foreign ministry which was also far from have happy about how things pan out for the bolivian president so you subclass somebody . with that as the machine due to the failure of european states to give permission
10:04 am
to the aircraft of the bolivian president to fly through their airspace and is forced landing of this special flight in vienna the following should be noted the activities of france spain and portugal could hardly be regarded as friendly towards we live near as well as russia from where president mirrors was traveling after his visit to moscow moreover the refusal to grant the right to fly the aircraft could have endangered the safety of the passengers including the head of a sovereign state or europe receive the lion's share of criticism for their actions in regards to the bolivian president where some latin american officials saying that despite europe is criticizing what edward snowden has actually revealed still that acted as a colony of washington but of course the united states have also been criticized on this matter because of reports that they may have had a hand in this particular incident in fact the united states never made secret that they contacted countries in europe about snowden possibly traveling through their
10:05 am
territory and that she should be handed over to the united states authorities for charges and later trial so this story is definitely far from over we are anticipating this summit and believe that emergency summit of owners who are and what steps will be taking next and as long as edward snowden reportedly remains at moscow's sheremetyevo airport will be definitely seeing more crazy twists and turns to this saga. the french interior minister if edward snowden applied for diplomatic shelter in his country there's almost no chance he'd of gases all this after the whistleblowers revelations the e.u. was a major target of american surveillance caused hereis reaction in the blog and ignited a wave of outrage against washington and archie's were a few national is here with us so with the details hi there maria from paris right great to see you so the french government was among the loudest voices against a u.s. spy tactics but it's reluctant to help out the man who revealed it all so why this
10:06 am
twisted rhetoric well what we see is actually a curious evolution of france's position over america's spying activity from an extreme outrage to an even more extreme tolerance and even support we all remember that france has become furious after it was revealed that america's intelligence services had been more natori in high ranking french and european union officials even abroad and also at home and then the angry france's president has demanded washington to stop spine immediately and has even threatened to reconsider economic partnership with america and delay the talks over an ambitious project with america over the world's largest free trade zone america france and european countries have been working on for years this is exactly what francois hollande has said then. the world. we cannot
10:07 am
fix this kind of behavior between partners and allies we ask that this immediately stop because they can be no negotiations or transactions in all areas until we have obtained these guarantees for from. all of the union. but what we saw next has actually indicated a radical change in the country's position the european union countries including france have first agreed that the talks over the free trade zone should go on then later france has not allowed to believe its president jad to enter its airspace because an undesirable person edward snowden could also be on board of this plane and that's allegedly following america's request not to allow the jet to land in france and now with this recent comments from france's interior minister france makes it clear the former america's national security agency contract would
10:08 am
not get an asylum from france even if he applies for that because at the snowden has not done that yet and that's an interesting detail because that means that this is france's own initiative to make it clear and to emphasize that ad was snowden is not a desirable person here in france so why we see this change people here on the ground both ordinary french and political analysts are saying that this could be explained as an act of populism from france all around because his ratings are among the loyalists in the history of his presidency and of course he could think to gain some points by saying what exactly the french electorate wanted to hear from the leader of the country they want to be strong independent and they don't want to be humiliated or violated and. actually been hearing that kind of opinions
10:09 am
before even that france will not go beyond words. and would not dare to spoil relations with america and actually what we see now only proves that that comes. he's more of a national life of paris maria thank you very much indeed for that thank you. and commenting on europe's role in this scandal robert oulds chair of the british group policy think tank says he used to say it's happened abandoned colonial past and comes to their relations with the your. it's an infringement of sovereignty and an abuse and of course you need to respect the independence of other nations and there they are via the european union does seem to do the bidding of the united states of america which shows that use not really independent in terms of its own foreign policy european union follows what america does it really does seem to accept
10:10 am
american foreign policy goals rightly or wrongly but that's not an independent voice any but i and other countries within the european union under the common foreign and security policy so really it does mean that the cherished principle of a nation state having its own foreign policy is undermined and that then does leave the country to be be a colony of a greater political power which of course contrary to democratic legitimacy and the lesson are getting more and europe's role in this scandal from political analyst paolo reform and he joins us now live from brussels mr if i want to thank you very much indeed for your time so how will brussels or respond to this united voice that's where hearing from latin america. well this is the situation. because what the zeppelins with the flights of
10:11 am
the president. is just showing how much and the real security decisions for europe are taken in washington and. europe is a do to partner in the western alliance as it is always been over the past six years i mean this is not nothing new. of course that is a matter of being accountable to their respective electorate to to show that they have some word to say and some dignity to defend so with they will probably try to raise their voice but at the end of the story there will be a political settlement of all this matter so that it was the european countries so dependent on washington that they do whatever they all stem so are we talking about it can only call my station here what do you think. the history since world war two shows that there is no real autonomy when there are real stakes where
10:12 am
the western values or interests which means the american ones are. endangered we have seen it in the world types of military interventions around the world whenever it has been necessary at the end even reluctant states have been forced to go and follow the united states and those who didn't follow have been harshly punished even with some kind of. undeclared regime changes so the situation is not surprising is affects europe has not been capable of emerging as a political political power and therefore has to rely on the american leadership and capacity of intervention which pulls in europe when necessary and europe can just deny this kind of support here by talking about the added snowden case don't you think that they did have a right to force the plane down if they had
10:13 am
a genuine suspicion that edward snowden was on that plane. there could have been a suspicion but you know the parent is if we are talking about several states several states should be respected as such the rules of international law have been totally. shaken. i did say since one thousand nine hundred nine on. a level that even among the western powers now there is a situation where someone is more equal than others and. the possibility of a sovereign state to adopt a decision regarding asylum or protection of a certain individual are completely put aside. to favor the major interest of the center of the imperial system which is washington and this gets no right to call analyst power rough or net thank you very much indeed for
10:14 am
your time thank you. under oath and consultant adrian salberg she believes the forced landing of the believin president's chap sounds out a clear message that everyone can be washington's next target. i think that they have made a serious mistake because this is just one more example of the way things are going to be not only throughout latin america but throughout the world already where you have powerful hager man's told to be disrespectful towards the national sovereignty of all countries bolivia has already the support of other countries that are also modeling to united states like venezuela in a way argentina probably brazil and definitely ecuador ecuador venezuela were about to consider giving asylum to snowden and then you have the other countries that are traditionally are aligned to the united states and britain that will definitely try to keep a very low profile on this chilly colombia and even mexico however they are all
10:15 am
very much aware of the fact that this is a very serious event and there will probably be some sort of combined action or at least a combined declaration saying that this event has been deplorable because you never know who's next so even a country that is friendly to the united states might find out overnight that it is no longer friendly to it. its president also. where they believe in playing ground as part of the u.s. hunt for snowden while washington be held to account in breaking the sat abby martin looks at whether the unfunded suspicion could lead to. i guess my question is who that whole does obama think it is only after a week of declaring that he wouldn't scramble jets for a twenty nine year old hacker obama forces down the plane of a foreign head of state that's ludicrous and humiliating just imagine if another country demanded air force one to land mid flight based on an on founded suspicion as centrally the u.s.
10:16 am
is saying we can do whatever the hell we want even if that means outright disrespecting leaders of nations there will be consequences for this kind of disregard for the world stage and if you think that it's completely insane to join me and let's break the said. it looks like it will. never seen anything like that. after the break as agents of the raise the end of president rules his rule set will this with change of power could bring to the country and its people to stay with us . it is not a surprise to me that we've got problems and one time during a time of budget cuts we spend one hundred and fifty million dollars each year to imprison one hundred sixty six people get more as become
10:17 am
a symbol around the world for america to believe what. we speak your language i mean some of the will not advance. news programs and documentaries in spanish what matters to you. is a little tonnage of angola's stories. that all teach spanish find out more visit actuality.
10:18 am
welcome bob this is a day off for military career toppled a gyptian president the country's new leader is showing little mercy to mohamed morsi and those close to him with a claim on syria having been sworn in as interim unita the general prosecutor has had the is the most muslim brotherhood supreme guide and his deputy arrested but the swift change of power has infuriated beck's president's supporters triggering triggering renewed clashes on the streets. reports. well it certainly does seem as if this is it will be for the president and his supporters all those you see behind me there are celebrations ongoing here in toughness where there are huge numbers of pro morsi supporters who understand and fear that a full army crackdown is on the cards they are living in fear of being
10:19 am
a waste and we know in that the film of president morsi and his entire presidential office are currently under house arrest they are being held in a minute change intelligence facility there also at least some we hundreds of waste woman said have issued for the leaders of the muslim brotherhood the military has away he began rounding up these needed and the wasting away and now only a two day way means full met head of the constitutional court was sworn in as the interim president of egypt he took an oath in which he states he swears to uphold the constitution he swears to uphold the republican system and respect the constitution and law he also said that it was his mandate to safeguard the people and protect the nation from those words coming from eighteen and so he says that these mass protests are something that should be praised and have managed to not to gyptian but certainly that's not what the scene on the ground what the sinking divisions within the egyptian society since sunday when these mess demonstrations
10:20 am
started at least fifty people have been killed we're just receiving reports right now that being on t.v. offices in cairo are witnessing behind into the clashes not far from them so this is an indication that the violence is far from a beta that will see here in statements from overseas meant that they're going to get some kind of jihad some kind of poll you will find that they can fight to the end because they are not willing to accept this this this is taking away off a president having said that though they. the muslim brotherhood leadership they say that they won't be an armed struggle even though they do not accept what they are forming a military coup the question of course is whether or not the leadership can control the people on the streets there is my t.s.p. content yet to be some kind of showdown between me and the army just how this plays out of course that i mean only in the coming hours the army has laid down to load in terms of how it sounds to govern the country moving forward it has of course
10:21 am
suspended the constitution it has dissolved the parliament and it is going to be calling for fresh parliamentary and presidential elections and it is establishing an interim council that is being lead by the film a hit of the constitutional court. and the joining our discussion now live from tel aviv is diplomatic correspondent for the jurist lynn post kanan mr kagan thank you very much indeed for joining us now it's i'll see many projects egypt will spiral into more violence and some even say civil war how likely is this scenario. look i mean it's difficult sitting here in israel it's very difficult to kind of predict what's going to happen in egypt i think i think the officials in israel are watching the situation very carefully and very warily worrying how it all could impact on egypt's relationship with israel yes how will this spillover effect being tiring. but again
10:22 am
it's we just have to have a little patience and wait and see how things play out i think will take some time i think in general you can say a couple things about how israel looks at these types of events israel is adverse to chaos is the first to unpredictability and i think what this does is this sends the whole region into a certain degree of chaos in a certain degree of unpredictability which is uncomfortable for israel israel like stability it likes predictability even if those dealing with are not necessarily favorable toward it however like to know how they're going to take syrian president bashar assad for instance very tough relationship with israel over the years but as you kind of knew what he would do knew how we would react now in syria there's complete chaos in egypt also now catechesis ways and it's tough it's tough for israeli policy makers to look at this and define what to do and this is exactly what i'm going to ask you we're seeing the reaction coming in from from neighboring countries what does israel stand here on this question. israel will not say
10:23 am
anything about this i think the u.s. government officials what they what they what they think what they say what's going to happen and then one response is we're watching it carefully israel realizes that this isn't anything that it can impact on israel has no impact or any significance on internal affairs inside egypt anything they say anybody they would perceive to be backing would be used by the other side against that person so israel as in syria by the way very careful to stay out of the events. and last has been in the office for only i gather why is he being blamed for all this triangle's egypt faces than look i think i think what happened to a large extent is you have a situation where expectations were raised from mendis lehi lot of internal problems inside of egypt is going to take a long time to fix them and you can't expect somebody is going to be able to do it overnight i think he would he raise unrealistic expectations i also think that he
10:24 am
you know he erred in not be more inclusive in not being kind of a big tent and getting other elements within egypt and society underneath that tent so will comes next then for egypt and its people. i think it's going to be a perilous situation nobody nobody can really predict to you what's going to happen i think if you look back you know two years ago nobody saw what was going to have with mubarak you vast intelligence agencies around the world is mubarak going to fall will what happened to spread to egypt i mean most people would have told you they don't know or know of the of the same situation here i think to be reckless for anybody really to predict how this thing is going to play out will the military step out of step out of the way now will they just hand it over to a civilian government or will they want to keep control it's much much too early to tell the whole right thank you very much that was diplomatic correspondent at the jury a slim posts to hug. mr kenyon thank you very much indeed for your time thank you

10:27 am
but problems can have multiple causes and the authors of the book rich food poor food believe it could be tied to eight foods that are allowed in america but are banned in many other countries across the globe some of these chemicals and techniques and foods that are banned by some other countries are a less strong which is in many snack products which lower scale worries but kills your body's ability to absorb minerals brought me to flour which saves tons of time for the baker but beats up your internal organs and of course our good old friend synthetic growth hormones which are in livestock which have been linked to cancer big problems rarely have simple solutions you can run around and exercise as much as you like but if you're being pumped full of these chemicals that are illegal in much of the world well your chances of fitting into that bathing suit are ironically slim but that's just my opinion.
10:28 am
an infinite number of people coming who are taking jobs that pay over one hundred thousand a year you know they're going to pay taxes we create lots of other jobs around those people in my basic view is that the country should welcome as many of those people as we can get and what the corporations during the tell congress or there's a shortage. of engineers is a shortage of scientists we can't find any this is all absolute total law would be a chore many corporations will go to any lengths including these legal but deceptive practices to hire cheaper foreign labor look at this video clip recorded at a seminar conducted by an american law firm for human resources professionals and our goal is clearly not to find a qualified to be interested u.s. worker and you know that in a sense that sounds funny but it's what we're trying to do here i get fifty resumes my god this is the last thing i want to do is interview these fifty people does the
10:29 am
law require that i actually interview each and every candidate you know everything if it gets to the point where the somebody is that they might do very well but we asked them to have the manager of this specific position step in and work the qualifications within this necessary stage of that interview just in the process to find a legal basis to disqualify them for this particular position that whoever the displaced workers are still who ever talk with this the fact that i'm thinking this means the answer is either no or almost no. i can't offhand remember. a case you know we professors tend to be ivory tower types. and. what they've done for the last twenty years is destroy the ability of people who work hard play by the rules to decent retirements big.
