lifesaving drugs many are turning to alternative medication putting their health in danger. of about one another update for in less than fifteen minutes from now in the meantime let's get more insight into the continuing unrest across the arab world and a recent article in the wall street journal it would look like a writer and u.s. military strategist said that the removal of egypt's hosni mubarak would lead either to anarchy or to muslim extremists coming to power. and for more analysis on this and that's in an interview next here on r.t. . edward luttwak thank you very much for being with us today who do you think pulled the rug from under mubarak and pulling the strings right now well pulling the
12:34 pm
strings nobody's pulling in the strings because this is a crowd action crowd this is the popular insurrection it's not the revolution it's not the coup it's not some clever colonel who takes three tanks and takes two powers this is a real popular insurrection which is people are living under a government for one and ten and twenty and thirty years and one day they all gather because of an incident something happened in this case of as you know it didn't happen in egypt it happened to me one person was pushed around burnt themselves there was a crowd and they overthrew tunisia so this is the true popular uprising quite special but also very interesting to observe how states turned their back on the barracks quite sure quite quickly because. yes i know but the american government
12:35 pm
is always in a state of embarrassment when its friends are not democratic. so the united states. has always to manage a contradiction on the one hand we are normal american people we like friends and we don't like any on the other we also want democracy we talk among crecy so when you become a friend in the states and you're not democracy you're in the difficult question because the americans always talk about the markers so it's always been the balance in the americas of course on the one hand barack is a friend on the other he's a dick and so once the people go rob the rule is this if you open fire you lose there is so long as you don't shoot the americans can be half an hour once you tell the police to shoot that's it the rain ians shoot the crowd the syrians can shoot
12:36 pm
the crowd but if america is your patron you cannot shoot well all of this month in wall street journal if mubarak leaves now the result is likely to be in an article or islamist egypt or some of both until another dictatorship emerges is still second to that yes yes i do i do and the reason is that democracy is not something you come by in a shop it takes centuries of development to go to democracy for example the united states went into iraq remove saddam hussein. and what happened is not that the iraqis became the region speaks they remained who they are so therefore it took enormous difficulty to form a kind of mixed religious balance a democracy. half working ok and you cannot create it you cannot jump ahead i believe that the conditions don't allow democracy at the present like that
12:37 pm
on the other hand the united states cannot be. what happens to a dictator who shoots his own people you cannot do it politically it's not possible that this is a u.s. president you cannot do congress will cut to the money that's also if you look at what's going on right now starting from tunis it's a chain reaction of social apparatus like you said popular popular uprisings right and if they do not dictate or should they do not want to cater should know they want to. have a leader who to follow no you don't need a leader to have a democracy what you do need is to have respect for political rights could there islamization instead of democratization is quite possible islamization i mean if i look. at these nominees ation is retreating in iran because they have islamic government if you go to turn around today have to people in tehran to drink whiskey
12:38 pm
not because they like kristie just to give it to the god so islam is ation is increasing in egypt when this preacher this fanatic guy went to cairo one million people came to this because at this stage of the. religion is much more meaningful democracy and to have democracy have to have real respect for human rights and personal individual rights but let me tell you the middle east lost its importance already with the world and it's even less important to it generates a lot of headlines but the real politics now is in the pacific and it is china and china that's where world politics is it's not the middle middle east is just pictures television pictures of people shouting what is this what's going on there
12:39 pm
nothing there's nothing going. this is you're talking about countries that don't we do produce and they don't invent anything they don't develop. then like you and some of them have that's. the center of world politics is completely different to that do i understand correctly that you believe the europe is most likely to suffer the most out of this wave of unrest tourists europe europe is yet like of course i already know already started last week my prediction in the wall street journal is they paid the price if you read the article. first boats arriving from tunisia of people just want to entry to the day the boats you know arrive in these islands they have a plan to do is a. is the island's first i said in the article that be refugees because you're bizarre the upheaval tourism industry is that so right away people have no money so
12:40 pm
they made the immigration and this is a big problem for europe illegal immigration coming in and of course from a business point of view egypt did much more business with europe the united states and the states was providing strategic support not only weapons to egypt but the business of the europeans gone holiday shoppers say and you know if there is an islamist government in egypt you can forget about going to the beach and some say europe is much more close to tunisia in egypt than you neistat so you're quite hawkish on iran to pray mildly if you believe iran wants a bomb now i don't care if they want to bomb or not it's not important first of all iran is not exactly a great center of technology i'm not worried because of the technology they make wonderful donkey's samples but as for the rockets they're not the process and the
12:41 pm
nuclear program has been going on for year after year after year and nothing happens now the problem with iran is a different it is the fact that the iranian regime is in a constant state of instability they're always in an instability and they resolve the problem by external pressure so they are every day. criticizing attacking subverting. one to their paying every day hamas. sending rockets to hamas and hamas is sending the rockets on the heads of my jewish relatives and as you know i don't like that they are funding thirteen million dollars they're paying every week to his brother in lebanon a maybe they say steady maybe fifty of them know so hizbullah is a in effect a guerilla terrorist kind of organization as well as a political organization. and they're actively doing terrorism there are
12:42 pm
states supporting terrorism therefore they are disturbing element in the middle east and therefore i believe that even if their government was popular they would be our enemies. as it happens the government is unpopular but iran is still a sore point what do you suggest could be done because while sanctions could hire people on the government the sanctions are symbolic measure i. there are some few things that could be done will be useful for example. there are measures the europeans could take very cheaply measures that would really create a problem for iran for every day iran air is flying to italy to frankfurt to rome and with these flights they are bringing some jurors from the south but usually government. who are doing government because. closing those flights would
12:43 pm
put the real pressure. and make it clear across so that there will be some leadership sanctions target like for example we will not give a visa to anybody that is a government official that's. the visa you work for the government you have a no so this will be cheap easy measures to make but i don't believe that it really works what will work is time time will suffer because they are creating a post islamic society in iraq iran is the only muslim country. which is becoming less muslim every day every day there's another irregular who says that i'm finished with that the only thing that bothers me frightening will be too strong the word is that we have a serious financial about strategically this is not a threat no. we don't this is not the cold war so this is the time for the nice
12:44 pm
face to focus on domestic financial public finance problem not the economy the economy has to solve itself but public finance. at this moment forty three cents of every dollar spent by the u.s. government is borrowed half of it from abroad from germany japan and china. that's not really sustainable supplies there's a that's big stuff not for this middle east noise stuff all that comes out of the middle east is noise. nothing important happens all right edward luttwak thank you very much for this interview thank you.
