7:32 am

van dooren and across telegraph road. all right julie thank you. just days after a failed rocket launch north korea's few leader delivered his first major public speech sunday as the impoverished state, celebrated its founders 100th birthday the north also unvailed what appears to be a new missile this comes on the heals of thursday's embarrassing launch attempt which is still stirring up a lot of questions joining us now with more insight, jj green national security correspondent for wtop radio a lot to cover, let's jump in before we get to the specifics of the launch and missile yesterday and speech and all that last week it seems to me has been rather extraordinary we have seen a lot of north korea this week which we don't usually see including you know, the attempts to have the west witness this rocket launch and all that stuff what have you gleaned overall from what we have seen over the past week. >> typical of north korean policy, that is to make sure
7:35 am
the west is aware north korea is there x to make sure the west is a-- and to make sure the west is aware north korea knows how to engage make sure the west knows north korea knows how to gets the that it wants using items of power as it views it, its nuclear program its threat to launch rockets just its whole idea of disturbing business as usual in the east. >> they spent all that time leading up to the launch sighing this isn't a missile test nothing like that reas suring us and then yesterday, there is a missile coming down the parade route a new missile what do we know about that? >> well, they have lots of options and ideas in terms of things to launch but look let's go back to what happened what they did when they launched that missile the other day they damaged themselves in three important ways one they lost a lot of food aid for people who need it food coming from the
7:36 am
u.s., two, what they did was jacked up the pressure on the chinese who are big brother to them, helped them a lot and made it a lot tougher for them in china, having its own problems right now and number three, north korea makes its living, if you will, by selling illicit items such as nuclear technology or black market missiles and what they did was damaged their prospective sales by scaring off prospective buyers by that miserable rocket launch into the ocean, so this missile that was trotted out yesterday was most likely in the minds of folks i have spoken to an opportunity for them to say we've got more and can keep trying. >> all right are they more likely now, with that launch failure, to want to do a nuclear test? >> well, you know north korea, they need food, they need help with whatever it is that they are missing that they are lacking to feed their people
7:37 am
and make them as comfortable as possible and you know that is always skeptical when it comes to north korea whether the government is really concerned about its people but they need some way to keep the west concerned about north korea, if they didn't do it most likely a lot of folks would say the west would forget about them, but they do need to keep the eye of the west on them and this is the best way they can do it right now. >> can the u.s. apply more pressure to china and if we do, you know like you say they kind of put china in an awkward position with the launch the other day will china respond. >> china has already to some degree said to them based on folks i have spoken to, behind the scenes said you need to chill you need to calm this down but they have got a new leader, but they have the same old people around him, some of daddy's henchmen and grandpa's people, still around him, and some of those decisions that
7:38 am
they are making for him, and helping him to make are reflective of the same decisions made in the past, and china knows how the get to these people the question is are they going to listen they haven't listened well in the past. >> i want to turn quickly to afghanistan, just this week well, during the last 24 hours we had attacks by the taliban, afghans fought them back after an 18 hour attack in kabul what do we know from this? >> we know every year it will happen whenever the winter breaks and spring comes taliban views it as an opportunity to get out and make its point that we are relevant the way they do that is by spring attacks this is a situation you have members of the taliban been there for a long time they know how to do these things and even though, supposedly this iron wall around that area, they have folks inside we cannot forget there was one time when the taliban used to run afghanistan, that country, and
7:39 am
the government, they know where the trap doors are. >> ten second answer, afghans put it down in 18 hours are we impressed with that >> i would say we got lucky and that is what i think most folks would say. >> all right good to have you here thanks see you soon melanie back to you. thanks tony 7:37 a.m., 63 degrees under the microscope, nursing home disaster plans. >> they put their lives on the line for our freedom military dogs could soon have something to look forward to after retirement,. first looking to upgrade those old pots and pans? today's my fox half off deal is for you, $15 buys $30 worth of kitchen tools on the website universal kitchen tools. go to look for my fox half off on the right side of the beige page here's my rubarb marmalade, my cheddar cheese marmalade,

councilmember vincente orange headed this way they are getting ready to go to a prayer breakfast but might just stop by and see us first hello sir. >> hello we brought jesse jackson with us as well. >> all right, we will talk to him but you are the one who introduced legislation to make this a holiday here in the district what is going through your mind today >> i am just very pleased everything has come together the lord has given us a beautiful day to rejoice in and celebrate this great day in the district of colombias, 3100 slaves were released from bondage 130 years ago. >> clearly this is an important place to be good morning to you. >> it is pain and joy, emancipation day but we are not emancipated we have more taxes than several states more soldiers in the military than several states yet we have the right to vote every major government in the world, cuba,
7:54 am
venezuela, russia, britain france and latin america, this place, we are set aside but did not set aside our democratic rights the congress and the white house and courts have an obligation to free dc. >> this has been such a long mission for some time in order to get voting rights here in the district to be represented fairly what is it going to take to finally make that change the message has been out there for a long time. >> well, 150 years for the congress and the white house and the courts to afford for us here what they fight for around the world democracy, that is the main of it all taxation by representation it is real true here when this is set aside they want to go through be part of slave states, abolition states, out of here comes our capitol and virginia took its part of the land back let maryland have its part, and here we are in the situation, they will be appealing, the
7:55 am

7:56 am
only example of when the federal government actually compensated slave owners for freeing the slaves how important, is that to be a part of the story? >> important because the federal government paid $1 million for the freedom of the 3100 slaves the average payment was $300 to the enslavers those enslaved that wanted to two back to haiti or liberia were paid $100 the other key point is that dc enslaved pushes were freed first -- persons were freed first which set the proclamation declaration, 9 months later. >> by in large across the country slave masters got compensation for friends losing their property we fight reparation, it has been paid out to those who conquered and those who are owned people it is a great moral flaw in our society, it is a cut in our characters, i want to thank
7:57 am
