himself president. from the moment he assumed power the young head of state had to face the threat of neighboring libya. colonel moammar gadhafi wanted to an exchange. he was an equally ambitious revolutionary but all the more powerful thanks to the money he made from oil. in the name of his pan african dream he ought to strip of land in knows who the neighboring territory of libya and launched a rebellion against is an apple. and. then. a son in to get it into. the. gadhafi threatened western interests. not only in chad but globally. he
supported revolutionary movements and financed international terrorism in. the west extended supporter is an outbreak that's absolutely and cost. you. ronald reagan do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and. we can and will raise out of the problems which now confront us you and the president reagan came into power we were instructed to do everything possible to stop libyan activities america was like going against gadhafi he was just doing everything to foment revolution so in that context chad became an important
area for us the americans have the sort of they were going to support dissing the united states didn't care in chad per se but they did have a very strong interest in reigning in the ambitions of of colonel gadhafi. what we did was we assessed were chair. needed. charlie and soldiers more point and shoot it had to be pretty simple. it was part of my function to coordinate all that . we were to deliver them to the airport in the middle the day. be delivered at night rather than over their own who were not reporting to the congress and the press they were engaged in this program. the united states is an abberation regime but fronts was hesitant to do so.

most feared torturers in chad we see from the entry logs of the d.d.'s the liaison from the us to the d.d.s. was coming in and out of the d.d.s. it would be really hard to say that the us did not know what was going on. yet when the russian shots went and why the design would up. and answer can i find out from the fisherman. of course we knew about human rights violations. in chad. it was not an issue for us and as i said before our main focus was libya. of course we frequently have to help people we who are not very nice to do our things
but we do not regret anything there it is real politic yes. if you get a show that's it. by the mid one nine hundred eighty s. gadhafi had still not withdrawn his troops from northern chad he did not fulfill the agreements that he made with me tell tensions were rising between france and libya border such as it was there which i.
don't. like girls or below. near the city of what he doom the libyans built a two mile long runway to channel weapons and initiate a fresh attack on the country alone to get daffy once again to try to persuade him to see reason. get their feet. and then apply this is. and then. it is. all of you know. she would you. have your local. beach is something.
to do and he would. love us all for says a boy about this image and they are all more not sitting at his mother and then getting france reiterated their support for its and our brain with operation apell being. the french and the americans were now in the same position they had to clamp down on the libyan advance to threaten stability in the region. libyan army was very well outfitted because libya had a lot of oil wealth and the soviet union that thought happily provide them with a lot of equipment. so if the same hardware was going to go after that you know he
had a good case to make we provided ten stinger missiles under very strict controls . and they were he wanted. a new reality. this modern equipment allowed. to launch an assault on the pros libyan forces a battle known as the toyota war took place in the vast desert of chant. on that he had to get that money. and for a. set of your own but i. feel for the men. the toyota war ended with the taking of what the doom gadhafi stronghold in china. is and how bray in the end destroyed the libyan army.
and killed thousands of libyan troops that would not have happened if there had not been effective french or american cooperation. is very happy he came we had lunch with president reagan and we had a long talk president are convinced. that the relationship between our countries will continue to be strong and productive and was an honor and a great pleasure to have had him here as our guest.

a shock your commission says that the city after the pussy peace usually. on the list of cannot fight heathy and. if you do this you. aegis debbie's relation to this case has always been very complex on the one hand he was his and harbor his military chief during one of the bloodiest periods of the government on the other hand after he broke from his and harbor a many of his best friends and many family members were killed by his and. when you're the authoritarian president of a country. and simple citizens have brought to justice the previous president it's very it's an uncomfortable situation it's a democratic victory that you don't. you know necessarily want to be encouraging.
to did notice for seventy. one offense because this one is it doesn't. end soon month and a buddy is on it keeping a buddy mr dylan responsiblity jimmy deep blue sky is in of this it on then it is off that i suppose it's. going to be a method in my. human mind. a kid is a free kick into wealth at a point and then ends up. even on his selection.
welcome back so look at the weather across the levant some western parts of asia is quiet and then after quite an unsettled spell of weather but we have got a weather front which stretches across parts of iran and through into the gulf region so that could be some rain here and elsewhere around the caspian sea could be wanted to showers on the eastern shores when the eastern side of the mediterranean the weather conditions general looking fairly quiet twenty one in beirut heading on into choose day we have got this low pressure beginning to move in getting as far cyprus i think during the course of the day not that stage or the highs of nineteen and back down to a bit warmer in tehran that fourteen now as we head across in to arabia and pincher weather conditions generally fine for the most part but this front could give the threat some rain across parts of saudi arabia would entirely rather chance of a shower pushing to qatar but it shouldn't be anything of any intensity otherwise
weather conditions looking fine upper darby looking pretty good temperatures there rising to twenty nine so that's heading into southern portions of africa where it's quite unsettled at the moment we've got some rain effects in parts of zimbabwe and through into mozambique some heavy showers still for the east coast of madagascar and still some showers affecting the eastern side of south africa but as you head on to choose day becomes largely dry here fun in cape town is twenty two. people or not he was trying to shoot themselves and their other countries have managed to solve this problem are you worried that this conflict could erupt into a right open war that the city should know security people who pay the price there right up in prejudice setting the stage for a serious debate up front at this time on al-jazeera.
we're here to jerusalem bureau covered israeli palestinian affairs we cover the story with a lot of internet we cover it with that we don't dip in and out of the story we have presence here all the time apart from being good government it's also very important to be a journalist to know the story very well before going into the fields covering the united nations and global diplomacy for al-jazeera english is pretty incredible this is where talks happen and what happens here matters. we will maintain the finest fighting force the world has ever known united states army was so reliant on the private sector i would call the dependency we have a mismatch between the way we. work to be and the reality of the twenty first century in africa here. for you and i want to show you how many of the persons that you're sending out you should be child soldiers like i said my child soldiers
