. the greek authorities are conducting a sweeping crackdown on the extreme right to go. dawn party arresting its leader and a dozen a senior officials and members it stems from the murder of a prominent anti-fascist rapper two weeks ago allegedly by a golden dawn activist the party has become the third largest in greece and is best known for terrorizing immigrants and attacking political rivals dr alexander because a mess who is a specialist in the country's politics spoke to my colleague kevin owen he believes that the more the government tries to suppress the organization the more it is likely to flourish so far as the position of the m.p.'s for whom arrest warrants have been issued is concerned by the fact that they will be on trial in under arrest they win or lose their status as members of the greek parliament or so seems to be the case if you try and close something down and you drive it underground it thrives. that is correct and i am personally

disgraceful reduce the profile of repatriation ceremonies for sessions of hearses carrying coffins straight to the union jack when bodies are brought back from afghanistan. but a war weary british public isn't keen on having its opinion swayed and is particularly adamant about keeping repatriation the ceremonies in the public i think there should be respected for what they've done and we should be aware that it was just more just a. little. thing they can do. publish to write any move possible should be. a thing basically fish should be going to war so it's really trying to avoid war rather than try to make it sound it makes an interesting way the paper appears prescient as it was written before the british parliament voted against getting involved in syria under the immense weight of public opinion the. it seems unlikely that the public will be manipulated into

confrontational approach at the u.n. labeling it a smokescreen norman solomon from the institute for public accuracy says that hawks in washington are pushing at the white house to be more hardline and its policy towards tehran. the u.s. government is under great pressure from the hawks in washington many of whom want the united states to either attack or wink and nod towards israel launching an attack on iran within the next year or so the role of the us i think is now to see what's possible diplomatically and i think it's a combination you know it takes two to damp and ronnie and obama are beginning to doubt that was not possible under achmet din a job it was not possible or would not be possible under a president romney or president mccain for instance and i think that is
