6:29 am
syria, the violence is now approaching the government's front door. gun fights and demonstrations are erupting in damcus, long considered a stronghold for president bashar assad. now, gunfire live in the streets. arwa, you're joining us live by phone. pictures from damascus, does the assad regime sense trouble? >> reporter: certainly, because it is imperative for the survival of the regime that it maintain control over the capital, over damascus itself. we saw pretty intense clashes erupting in a fair number of neighborhoods. some of them in. heart of the capital itself. now, the capital suburb pretty much was it.
6:30 am
they are only able to go out and demonstrate for a minute or two before security forces show up, and they are even able to hit the streets in abu dhabi. this happens for short periods of time but then the government goes in and always gains control. this level of wide were spread clashes throughout the capital, in the heart of damascus itself, this is not something we have seen in the past during this entire uprising. it most certainly is an interesting development, one that definitely is going to have to regain control over because it cannot afford to have this happening time and time again. >> this has been going on for 15 months and i'm not sensing fatigue around rebels or government forces. are you? >> reporter: you know, in some
6:31 am
ways, that is what is 1yujust s amazing. after 15 mont they're somehow able to muster and go out and demonstrate. on the few occasions where i have been able to join them during demonstrations, it takes them days, if not weeks, to organize one demonstration. but when it comes to damascus, it lasts around five minutes before security forces show up, yet they have been doing it, as you mentioned there, 15 months. i know they're not going to give up and the government is confirming its position as well. both sides are so determined, so polarized against one another. also, both sides, randi, are imminent to stay to it very end. there really is a fight for their very existence when it comes to the opposition when it comes to the regime.
6:32 am
the great concern, if nothing changes this becomes a long drawn out civil war. a war of attrition that is only going to see more massacres, more bloodshed, and the war in syria won't stay contained in syria. it will flow over. >> that is certainly the big concern. arwa damon for us in beirut, lebanon. arwa, thank you very much. secretary of state hillary clinton has been front and center calling for action on syria. she met with kofi annan yesterday to discuss annan's peace plan. check out what the american people think of the problem. only 33% of america think the government should intervene. a rise over what it was in february, but still not a big number who think the u.s. has any responsibility in syria. joining me now, mark katz, a professor of government and politics at george mason university. professor, good morning to you. let's talk about syria here. i mean, we have seen the horrors.
6:33 am
so why isn't the united states pushing for military intervention as they have in many areas before? >> i think because the american public and the american government are tired of intervention that didn't work out so well in iraq or afghanistan, and i think that the u.s. fears that intervention in syria could be a years' long effort which is going to be inconclusive. >> when you look at the syrian situation, though, how is it any different from libya, where the u.s. partnered with nato on air strikes? >> i think that's partly because libya took much longer than expected. that people don't have a stomach for syria. i think people thought with the nato air strikes in libya, gadhafi would fold quickly and then, of course, it dragged on for months and months. the anticipation is that syria would be much, much more difficult a conflict to get involved in. >> you have said that the u.s., you believe, is hiding behind russia and china, which we know both russia and china are
6:34 am
against sanctions being imposed on syria. what do you mean by the u.s. hiding behind those two? >> i think in the past the u.s. has not waited for security council approval. the u.s. has been willing to argument outside the security council. we did this in -- not only the bush administration in iraq but the clinton administration in kosovo in the former yugoslavia. i think the russians know as well enough to know if we're serious, the choice we give them is that either they support us in the security council or not, but we're going to go in, and the fact that we ar you know, claiming that russia and china are blocking action, well, they know from our past behavior, that that's not a real op stickle. we must not really want to go in. >> all right. mark katz, appreciate your time this morning. thank you very much. >> thank you. well if you're up with us this morning, we're certainly glad you are. maybe you're eating your breakfast, looking for ways to
6:35 am
live a healthier life. my next guest believe as vegan diet is the answer. plus this -- >> have you cleaned up your act for the new season? >> well, let's see. yes. so far. >> she is back, and just as beautiful. linda grey dishes on all the drama for the "dallas" dynasty's return to television. >> a family machine. i won't be able to make the wedding.
6:36 am
6:37 am
welcome back. all right. so put down the eggcmuffin. stay away from the bacon. not that they're fattening but that they contain animal products. according to my next guest if you throw out the meat ayou can cure diabetes. the doctor joins me now. good morning. >> good morning, randi. >> this is a fascinating conversation. i've been looking forward to this. you're well known for your book "the color code." your new book suggests a vegan diet for your patients. how does this actually work to help control diabetes? >> worldwide, both people young and old are developing diabetes at an alarming rate. a vegan diet can help people turn their lives around.
6:38 am
i have seen in my own practice, real diet makes real difference in terms of diabetes control. helping people control their weight and getting on to a healthy life. >> you have some very specific tips for a vegan lifestyle. a lot of people might not know what it includes. one of the things, include plenty of beans, nuts, seeds, and avoid red meat. >> exactly. >> that plant proteins are best. why are plant proteins actually better than meat? >> well, plants have within them phyto nutrients. one way to include more plants, follow a vegan diet. one thing that people should not dot is eat red meat. it's been shown even three ounces of red meat per day can significantly increase the risk of developing and worsening of diabetes.
6:39 am
so it's a real issue. >> i'm sorry. go ahead. >> and, also, i think the idea of eating lots of fruits and vegetables, trying to get up to eight to ten servings of fruits and vegetables every day, try to eat a rainbow of colors every day, that would include, your mother always told you, eat your green, but also eat your reds i don't blue, oranges and your yellows every day. a whole rainbow of colors. >> you're a big fan of the berries. why are berries so important? i know they're low in sugar. that's a good thing. right? >> well it turns out berries are pote ent antioxidants. of all the fresh foods ever tested, wild blueberries are the highest in terms of their antioxidant benefits. and to start every day with, for example a blueberry smoothie is just awesome. and you can throw another high-antioxidant foods. everything from spinach, sounds crazy, but just combining
6:40 am
different antioxidants, it turns out that you get the most benefit if the food hasn't actually been cooked in general. if you're eating it fresh and you're getting thoseanti-e anti-oxidants. people with diabetes and high blood sugars benefit especially from having these brightly colored fruits and vegetables throughout the day. >> and you also suggest that drinking water, coffee, tea, but only using the sweeteners such as zylotal? that the sweetener, not so healthy. >> an all-natural product from peru and the sugar alcohols are quite healthy, i'm xylitol and so on.
6:41 am
also on the market, stivia, i see that as a healthy sweetener and not chemically derived. xylitol was derived from the bark of birch trees. it's a healthy product. >> for some it might be too extreme to go veegenigan diet. a vegetarian diet, would that help too? >> you're absolutely right, randi. something some fish from time to time or a few times a week is not a bad idea. i do try to get people to stape aw stay away from darpy products. milk was designed to make a cow gain weight through the course of a year. people who eat a lot of cheese and high in dairy products will often have a hard time controlling their weight. so i try to get people to move
6:42 am
away -- i say vegan mainly to try to get people to consider the dairy products in their diet, and try to reduce those. it's better for them to be eating plant derived foods. you know, the things that we mentioned. the berries and the beans and legumes and whole grains, so on. two or three servings of whole grains we are pay reduces the rick of diabetes by 30%. >> even if you don't have diabetes, i'm sure you'll agree, eating that way, anyway. it's healthier? >> absolutely, randi. the point, some people like to say, it's a diet for people with diabetes. i argue there's only one diet. a healthy diet all should try and follow. >> i hope folks are waking up early wir us and taking notes here. doctor, thank you so much. appreciate having you on the show. >> thank you so much. and if you follows the

rivals of the ewing family, the hit show "dallas" is back following a new plan and new generation of scheming ewings. a sneak peek of the new series. if you're a fan of the show, i think you'll like what they have to say. >> rebecca's parents. there are a lot of warning lights and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning.. you can feel. introducing the all new cadillac xts, available with the patented safety alert seat. when there is danger you might not see, you're warned by a pulse in the seat.

6:46 am
>> dysfunctional being the key word? >> yes. i knew we would never get to work together again because we're too recognizable as these characters. this was like a yahoo. let's do it. go to texas and do it again. >> josh, are you ready to join this dysfunctional family? >> i'm completely ready. i guess ready as i can be. i don't really know what to expect, except that i feel blessed to be part of this. >> so how true to the original series is this going to be? >> it's -- it's a continuation. and i must give patrick duffy the credit, because he says it's year 14. and that's exactly what it meals like. it wasn't a glitch, a glump. it just seamlessly goes from what you saw before to this new generation to 2012. >> tell me about this new generation of ewing.
6:47 am
you play little j.r., as i've seen it called. are you going to be as ruthless as your father? >> i'm like the sweetest guy you've ever met. it's -- >> i don't know about that. >> it's kind of weird that john ross is so -- >> a ruthless another and ruthless father. i don't know. >> how did he turn out to be so nice and caring and respectful? >> a chip off the old block. you know? he definitely knows thousand do business one way and that's the j.r. way and he believes that it's his fate to be an oil man and hopefully he wants to be even bet around one-up j.r. i don't know if he thinks that's possible, but that's his goal, and he's an intense, passionate young man who has issues from not having the best parenting, and you know, here we are now. thanks, mama. >> so tell me about the target audience, because i'm wondering as fan of the original series, watching it now, will it make me feel older or bring me back to the time and make me feel young again? >> as "dallas" always was and
6:48 am
still is, it's an entertaining you. >> i am sick to death of this family devouring itself over money! >> keeping you engaged with the characters and the -- >> the cliffhangers. >> and the cliffhangers. now it's a continuation. it will blend. blends beautifully with the older characters and the young characters, and there's not this -- there's nothing that will have you say, to my knowledge, anyway, and we've seen them all, that you won't just sit there and go, nah, it's not like the old days. it will just be like, oh, my god. did you know this and this? they'll just forget about it and feel that it's just this flawless segue into this new show. >> year 14. >> yeah. year 14. >> and that's how it feels. it feels like that to us, the three of us. and it just feels smooth. >> so it seems the new "dallas" will pick up where the old one left off. will anyone get shot?
