8:04 am
to a military dockyard athens is not quiet about this and has come on record as saying that no ships distant from gaza will be that supports and international critics say that it has no right to do this the country can in fact prevent ships docking at its port but it cannot prevent the opposite it come up from actually leaving its ports depending on where that ultimately land to say oh. i'm going to this comes a little over a year off douras the minarets had to break balls cade's and did. people ended with people being killed about how with the activists point to reach us that means this time. well let's go to that has been dubbed the freedom to tell it to and it's been in the planning for at least two years since that first fatality and last year that came at the end of may and it ended in disaster with nine hundred citizens being killed on board one of the ships not activists are pains to prevent this from happening again they've made
8:05 am
a point of saying that their whole attempt to bring humanitarian supplies to gaza is a violent mission at the same time these radiophone teams have been at pains to also try and prevent this from happening and that is why they've been pushing pressure on governments around the world to prevent and put pressure and intimidation on the citizens not to allow them to participate in this year's particular this is why critics accuse athens of bowing to pressure particularly from the united states and israel. in terms of not allowing to be one such as jonathan is on board one of those. one of the boats of the flotilla we had ten altogether that started this mission one of them the u.s.o. tried to make its way to international waters where due to me with the other ships fifteen twenty minutes out toward waters the coast guard came up to stop the ship from in front with a couple of large coast guard. wearing masks thing carrying automatic weapons got
8:06 am
down into it dodie and pulled up alongside the ship threatening to use tear gas burning to board the ship all believe they can do with the rest of the trip was a skirted back into a port israel is already attacking and we know we saw we heard prime minister netanyahu comments yesterday that he made where he thanked prime minister probably for basically doing israel's work for it and what we know behind the scenes that israel has been putting as well as the united states have been putting a ton of pressure on the greek government the greek government is a very weak position because of its economic problems is not a very popular government and its. concern the fall prey to such pressure and we believe although we don't have concrete evidence of a step we are we do believe that both the united states and israel were putting economic pressure on greece as well we will continue to challenge we're going to challenge the cabinet decision which our lawyers here believe is an illegal order
8:07 am
we will be challenging it in the courts we will be challenging the blockade itself i mean essentially our passengers now understand perhaps better than ever before a little bit better what it must be like to be a palestinian in gaza he can get out into open sea which is right in front of us from the port where we are just like palestinians together with the sea right in front of them can't access it. well the bottom of this year is a lot bigger than it was last year we're talking here of about ten ships whereas last year there were only six we're talking about some three hundred activists from twenty two countries who are participating in freedom flotilla to remain clear high profile politicians they include a number of jews and israelis and a number of political activists from european countries and the united states all
8:08 am
really trying to bring that message home that there are one and a half million people in one of the most densely populated areas on earth suffering and they say that while they do not have any illusions that they will be allowed by the israelis to reach gaza they were tempted really to bring attention to the situation they're. going to do now. well the activists themselves are in a number of different positions some of them are out at sea some of them have already been arrested and are being detained we are hearing that they do plan a number of large demonstrations in athens to call on the greek government to explain to give and the just an explanation as to why it is preventing these ships from sailing we've also been hearing reports of sabotage there were reports that an irish vessel that at this moment is in turkish seas was sabotaged by israeli divers who worked underground to prevent their engines from working obvious really foreign

8:17 am
personalizes the cold war at its peak robert gates was anything but controversial and he has garnered full respect all across the board during his valedictory exit tour from havana stand all across europe and back to the united states robert gates displayed unbelievable specter of sincerity and candor providing he's honest and unvarnished assessment of the united states strategic of all the reach all across the globe and somehow i have a hunch that in his upcoming memoirs robert gates will explain his one unfinished dream that is to finish the job keith initiated in his previous bassy as the cia chief when he opened up at the pound or a box of extremism in pakistan and in afghanistan only to be called
8:18 am
back to duty almost thirty years later to eradicate the evidence which he's so carefully rared and groomed in his previous capacity as the cia chief. social media gives everyone a chance to play their part in any story it's been a communication revolution encouraging not surprising in some countries on cause and controversy and others with the perceived lack of censorship resident in new york at the sidewalk people there think of the social networking the same. in today's social media driven world you can post whatever hate speech doctored photos or other nonsense you want with virtually no consequences how do you feel about that defining our times this week let's talk about that i was as still looking a guy on facebook once and by mistake instead of rising his name into the search i put as my status was all good i knew got me these things very quickly adding
8:19 am
everybody to really see did you learn your lesson people just pretty thing on here young girls young kids you know home addresses and everything like that i got a nice. open approach is that. people see what you show them not what you actually are in my experience and if you put something on the internet people will watch and think that that's actually your life you know when when people could be sitting at home doing nothing for a whole weekend they might just make things up just to make themselves more interesting a lot of people tend toward being snotty or rude and they've been taught through television and other media that that that's the new cool yet there's a shift in our culture going on for battle change as people start to understand that day and result of that is isolate you isolate yourself when you do that kind of stuff we need to be center of attention. as the world just become a giant high school. we would say yes we are all just a big giant but we owe
8:20 am
a life goal we all hated it so why do we want to live it every day that's a good question that's a good question and it's almost even in the more middle school that sort of mean girl kind of thing. and i think even adults get into which is. do you think that as we grow as a society people will get smarter about what to post or will it just get worse and worse i think people always be people you're going to have people that are smart you can have people that are not and i think that always be fruitcakes that put things on me that is just unhelpful and. regardless of how you feel about the pitfalls of social media the bottom line is it's probably going to get a lot worse before it gets better if it ever. rushes caucasus region is doing for its outstanding male wrestlers but now the local women the hot on the hills pumping iron in the gym and testing their limits
