the border crossing between china sea and libya. and there certainly is a growing sense here that as the situation in libya deteriorates so too does the possibility for foreign intervention grow now the u.s. president barack obama in his strongest words so far against the libyan leader moammar gadhafi stated he had lost all legitimacy to rule and must sit down you also say that he had approved the use of american military equipment to assist in the evacuation of egyptian and other refugees from libya now there is concern here on the ground as there is in the international community that as the situation deteriorates under the guise of humanitarian assistance the united states the u.k. and other players who are motivating for some kind of intervention will go ahead with it the responsibility to protect is a very selective principle just a week ago twenty nine demonstrators there were peaceful demonstrators were killed

in iraq by a government that has been propped up by thousands of american troops at the same time there have been demonstrations in the rain for weeks now we are thirty's have been firing tear gas and shooting on protesters the united states has not come out and said anything about this many people suspecting because it has been hit politicized at its feet there now the argument that the international community has a responsibility to get involved and stop gadhafi from firing at his people does not pull that much weight when you reach remember that wow hundreds of libyans have been killed just a few weeks ago when three hundred egyptians had been killed the response at that time from washington was the strained on both sides and more for any kind of international intervention libya has the largest oil reserves in africa at the same time european energy companies are invested deeply here this is why those in the international community calling for some kind of intervention is motivated by personal reasons rather than anything else i think we. actually think well the

world. from what is going on in the middle east the people of the region in tunis here in egypt in bahrain and all these places and so with great courage exactly how you do get rid of the haters arms they have to be allowed to do this in libya the international community of the rule of the people who hosni mubarak right to with the people themselves are there for the arms and weapons which is now using against his own people and it's simply a fact that you cannot trust them to intervene we've already seen in iraq we've already seen in afghanistan the terrible mess that the americans and british have made and they really should not be even thinking about trying to intervene in any way here now the latest word from washington is that they are not ruling out a no fly zone this is in contrast to what the pentagon chief said a short time ago he said they're doing this would be an act of war it would require the bombing of libya's air defenses the latest word from president obama also was
7:05 am
that they were considering all options on the table violence has continued throughout the day today friday that government troops have been firing and rebel forces particularly in the east of the country rebel leaders say that they will not give in and told gadhafi steps down the latest word from gadhafi he is as defiant as ever he says that he is going nowhere in the short time friday prayers will begin and then they will finish in fearful countries around north africa and the middle east there has been calls for protesters to take to the streets today has been dubbed ajay of rage and we expect demonstrations and clashes to many around the capital city of tripoli here at the border at the moment it is closed the last time it was open was there is day thirty five thousand bangladeshi came through there about sixty thousand people here they simply don't know where they're going or what they doing and the latest word we hear is that there is complete uncertainty as to when the school will be opened and what indeed will happen here

in the coming few hours. when it comes to revamping a damaged image p.r. is the weapon of mass destruction whether it's a bloody dictator or shady businessmen they all turn to certain companies for help polishing away their so he reputations or he's laura and it reports there is no such thing as dirty money. the influence of p.r. companies in distorting the truth is well known in hollywood movie wag the dog a p.r. agent engineers a war to distract from the president's plan during the to do should be the it's a pageant. and sometimes truth is stranger and much more damaging than fiction spain has increased in middle eastern politics for many many years i mean spain is what took britain into the iraq war for example kras headlines about weapons of mass destruction and within forty five minutes p.r. industry experts reckon the majority of the arab states in turmoil bahrain egypt
