2:04 am
the outrage against the bailouts not just to greece but to countries such as school and this political unrest seems to keep growing and will keep growing with a second bailout of portugal the alternative is there will be a default in these countries at the moment the real approach just seems to be delay it for as long as possible it looks as if germany and france are dictating this and they are trying to protect their banks and delay the inevitable default if you allow the countries to fund themself for short amount of time a year or two but ultimately these countries are insolvent and they will not be able to point us in selves in the long term so they will need some form of debt relief in some form of debt restructuring so it's better to get through this sooner rather than later as all only increase in terms of both political costs and economic course. in all these countries is yet to peak and will continue increasing over the next year so the eventual restructuring the eventual write downs which need to be taken just get larger not to mention as we've already spoken about the political costs of continuing these bailouts and the austerity measures. financial

and in greece. where unemployment hovers at about sixteen percent and the debt crisis has sparked anger nearly all of this anger stemming from poverty and failed economic policies in the us as well high unemployment sits atop a mountain of problems like a housing crisis and slow financial growth. this is the world christine legarde inherits as she begins at her new post as managing director of the international monetary fund in her first formal meeting with the press at the i.m.f. headquarters in washington she seemed optimistic in her hopes the international monetary fund is here to serve and to provide services to its hundred and eighty seven members if not the sexiest of news stories but still the inaugural press conference for the new managing director of the i.m.f. did garner quite a bit of media attention most likely it had less to do with christine lagarde
2:07 am
herself and more to do with the reason why she's here. what lessons do you think ought to be drawn from the way the u.s. legal system to handle this current case we could be any reforms in the human rights and human resources policies here do you plan any changes and in light of the controversy over mr strauss kahn the controversy of course with dominique strauss kahn accused of raping a hotel maid in new york that case now starting to crumble after it turned out the maid had credibility problems but back to the i.m.f. or lagarde will take over then yes you have a couple of issues what worries you the most la garde did her best to stay on message we cannot be only driven by the hope to reduce fiscal deficits and organize fiscal consolidation in a big way whether you look at advanced economies or whether you look at emerging

2:10 am
a look at detail. but you know there was a discussion and russia says such actions violate the arms embargo that was imposed on libya and the weapons supplies also breach the un mandate that was given to establish a no fly zone and protect the libyan civilians the u.n. authorization was given in the middle of march and since then nato bombings have killed scores of libyan civilians undermining the goal of the operation speaking of goals western powers have their logic of understanding the goals of the operation they say in order to protect the civilians they need to get rid of gadhafi in order to get rid of gadhafi they need to weaken his strongholds which means intense bombing of the country and that's what the forces are now actively engaged in but by all means alone they say will not bring it desirable and to the conflict which is ousting khadafi so there needs to be action on the ground that the u.n. resolution explicitly says no foreign troops on the ground in any form and that's why they arm the rebels according to france for example but critics say that logical change takes us very far from the initial goal stated in the u.n.
2:11 am
resolution which was to stop the massacre and nowhere in that resolution that is a forceful regime change many say nato is actions that old were meant to stop the massacre have brought about a lot of destruction not to mention that it's a direct and now a long lasting involvement in a civil war france was the first to acknowledge weapons supplies to the rebels in libya we're talking about rocket launchers assault rifles machine guns and anti-tank missiles there are several aspects that analysts point out in france is this dispatch apart from the fact that he very clearly breaches the arms embargo that was imposed on the one their radical elements among among those rebels while and there are likely to show mercy for their opponents and those arms supplies most certainly inflame the situation even more and the way it was done the weapons were parachuted from planes who knows who got hold of them it could be kids it could be criminals but it seems nobody cares as long as the the rebellion and that's the phrase used by the french as the reasoning behind the airlift to boost the rebellion but many libyans now say the last thing they want is a boost to the to the civil war that has to take. and so many lives that has torn
