1:16 am
a beautiful if they have one claim it's beautiful and they chose their their fight . before i go to mel actually follow me follow up on something you said explain how you mean the term deep state because it means different things and different countries explain what you mean when you use that term. well deep state as we understand it here in the case of algeria is also all agreed that the claim of people is not necessarily against bush would. govern them does not really govern the country there are people around who support a state of power they're pushing towards some kind of. some kind of continuation of of a state of power the way it is now so all of those deep state in my opinion in algeria are those who are behind the scenes that push in and hiding behind the beautiful to say that whatever it is in the country is because of what for what i believe the
1:17 am
deep state here will try to do in the end if they see the protests of the jury in people who will be strong enough they are i think ready to let go but they will negotiate some kind of power settlement with the people ok. a male same question to you did you feel like that was something like this just a matter of time ari surprised. bronson that's the result of the loneliest of course but what we have witnessed so far it's really a myth forks to control chanche you know it's trying to hold your hands have been asking for a chance in sixty to eighty eight months you on whatever demands of chance were taken from them to set the rigid interest in eighty eight it was like to launch free elections well then relax where where ever you want to but then we will stop their victory post as you want no more military important than a little grand vicksburg of the so-called fifth of presidents you want to mold
