anti muslim sentiment in europe in the states taking them in germany's new interior minister has become the latest politician to enter the immigration debate he says islam doesn't belong in europe. up next our own sophie shevardnadze is joined by two leading world affairs academics to look at what the future holds for troubled libya and its neighbors and why foreign nations should stay away interviews coming up next. stephen cohen it's really good to have you back. on your who also good to see you again so stephen has come out with a new book called the victims return survivors of the gulag after star and that's coming out in london next week but we'll still need to talk about what's going on
8:32 am
in the middle east because some shake news coming out and now it's being seriously discussed that u.n. and u.s. could intervene in libya. are we seeing a cause over iraq here i think it's very different than iraq i think iraq was a moment when the united states in the name of democracy formed democracy by bringing democracy at the tip of a bayonet or with bombs and i think we're seeing the ripple effects of iraq in the region. i'm opposed to u.s. intervention i wish the united nations had more capacity to end violence and bloodshed in countries like libya but i think for the u.s. to intervene. would be dangerous because the countries in the region themselves it seems to me as we saw in egypt people in those countries need to take control of their own destiny and i have not followed libyan politics carefully but i think we're at a tipping point in the country where the forces arrayed against gadhafi will
8:33 am
alstead in the next. yeah i do think so you're seeing that so for the u.s. to intervene we create a backlash in the region that could harm the possibility of future democracy in that very unstable and important region being older than. it was for more longer of the united states or of any moment for me and so many countries in the north korea very rarely are that worked out for. kind of makes the point of american ritual. discredits you know heard of the trigger and it's being thrown because it appears the pirate was overthrown with the backing of the united states in the forces of freedom or domestic democracy we've seen. in addition what we're seeing in egypt and in libya. it's not clear these are pro-democracy movements or these are and. despotic which they want to get rid of a dictator but getting rid of
8:34 am
a dictator from one of many countries doesn't mean necessarily that democracy that's a process in these countries will be very difficult we're going to go real democratic culture american adventure make it harder one of the point. if intervention is necessary should be the collective action of the united nations and this might not be a bad thing to the united nations was created in an effort to maintain pink's and to act as if there were a war and violence against the corporations so you know we're going to be intervention i think people who care about the future of this country should insist that the signal to the united nation not in the white house and not a rational or i mean for you all know how decisions are made or is that really matter well good part of the problem in the countries we're watching in the middle east now is that the institutions of democracy have been so guarded and attacked over the last decades by the despots in power that it will take generations to
8:35 am
build those institutions but in the same way the u.s. relationship with these countries has been so heavily dependent on military and national security relations that it has distorted our relations and so we talk a good game in the united states of support for democracy but we've really been supporting stability and support of oil or in support of other measures so i think we need a new national security. policy or new thinking to use a term that was popular in this country in order to develop a relationship that would emphasize economic development which is going to be critical because so many of the protests in the region have to do with economics despair and joblessness and i think support for civic governance not the meddling but just actual changing relationships so it's away from military it's a more civil political you look at the situation generally what kind of lessons are throwing for what's going on right now in the arab world well i think the lesson is that you're witnessing people who've been suppressed and repressed for decades who
8:36 am
are disgusted and fed up with the cronyism the corruption the suppression of not necessarily democracy but people's ability to lead their own lives and an anger about the joblessness but i do think the corruption the sense that these leaders were willing to put in their own sons and his family despotism has led to something we rarely see in this world we saw we saw some of it in one thousand nine hundred nine in this part of the world but it's people rising up and seeking their own destiny it's never as simple as that but i do think that that's what we begin with and from there it will get very complicated i think in america i don't know about your country but there is a sense or you know democracy has car no regime change has barely come these dictators have been ousted and what follows will be a measure of international support of non meddling of countries
8:37 am
ability to come together and find the resources i come back again to economic development i really think that's going to be critical in this region because you have millions of young people and that's how it started in tunisia it's like new dominoes the young man who couldn't get a license and who was disgusted by the corruption and lived in self up on fire and suddenly you. had you seen this and then finally you had the ability to communicate the social networks are not to be treated lightly people were able to see if you could get rid of a dictator in one country it could happen the problem in the united states where we just come from because there are a lot of good lessons being drawn in the. war and for saying this is a lot of it isn't and i would really want to journey maybe it's the first step but it's a long journey that's for certain second people think this is a revolution as well as story. react badly to the generalization and egypt for
8:38 am
example mubarak was gone but the regime the story where the military regime went over the country that's not a revolution that's for you call that regime change at the moment it's a leader change i don't know what's going to happen in that period commission it still be a change we missed the word revolution talk of a desperate fall and so there's a lot of misperception and then the other thing that's the warm western in the united states i think is that the united states should do something word to shepherd you know the support of shepherd like a former guide for his flock of sheep or in his cattle to or the idea of a united states that's to shepherd these countries as a force for us from god or his and bradley these countries will make an order or maybe make it all the united states doesn't understand the situation but there is a danger of a political involvement of your god which would be remiss i mean there are two things that have arisen in the united states in the last few days one is of course
8:39 am
the renewal of democracy promotion this idea that america has the right or the wisdom to impose democracy in other countries and you see a lot of this in the commentary president obama should bring democracy to egypt or bring democracy to tunisia that's not our role we need to get our own act together inside our country but also of course there's a concern that there will be more terrorist threats and danger in the. the feeling yes that the instability will fuel terrorist threats well you could argue the opposite that the repression of the possibility of democracy in these countries has given fuel to terrorists who have been i mean have been angry and enraged over these last decades by the u.s. occupation and presence in these countries to very tricky time i'm not even talking about the role of israel in the region in the united states there's a great live in iran and also well iran i think is in an interesting position
8:40 am
because there's iran has become again as it was because of the failed iraq war and more powerful in the region and i think or oil and other factors may make it even more powerful with israel in the united states you have a strong support for israel and a concern that it will lose allies the fact that you had the board as its main israel's main ally has caused many supporters of israel concerned i think you will see a region which is not going to be anti israeli but will not be as willing to support agreements that have been so inconsistent with the human rights of palestinians and so inconsistent with the rights of other countries arab countries and in the region but there is great concern among those who feel israel be threatened by the changes two years ago obama sought to reset relations with russia what humans are there to talk about so far world tour achieve some really can't say there's nothing we can
8:41 am
a more quiet voice an inch or two countries there is more cooperation in afghanistan there was a view that it was going to be cooperation around and i think that was an illusion the big achievement of course of the start treaty going agreement to reduce nuclear weapons are for i've just written a long manuscript about this and i came to a conclusion. that when it's a very unstable because we. underlying disagreements that created really a new cold war after making one roommate for doing all the arrangements on the would be going to shows for example why was the reset even necessary why wasn't the restriction you carton a ship after the storm or the strategic partnership a group which often your grandfather created with or reagan bush that was lost after going to war and he won. the united states blames putin but that's not of per explanation there is no agreement on the car secondly nato expansion is clearly the
8:42 am
biggest thing is the biggest stumbling point between america and russia it's even bigger than people understand and i will tell you why the president made a serious news on russia's entire go through a sphere of privileged interests in the former soviet republic has security or it is something political and we say we need the united states not we say no because no countries are allowed to have a sort of influence anymore it's an evil what is the expansion of nato it's an expansion of the american sphere of influence a vast expansion into the territory used to be was for europe was a soviet russia so. mr washington why didn't you get this for us and in our backyard and we get none of this is the league geo political conflict over a time and there will be reset now there is a solution but nobody's prepared to put it forward in the united states. till this problem is solved. there are going to be no partnership and your mr big you know
8:43 am
steve speaks as a scholar of russian the soviet union but he doesn't speak about the enormous opposition even this modest reset has confronted in the united states you had again a republican party which for decades has supported bipartisan arms control treaties and how many republicans did you finally get seven i think at the most so the resort is modest i agree with steve's analysis of the ongoing problems but the fact that it's. under fire in america is a failure of both the c.e.o. of a solid successor leadership this is one area where presidents both have enormous power in front of gorbachev and reagan world posed by their own parties but they overcame it and they get it as being attacked in moscow for more he said obama there but this is where leadership is required but don't forget these guys inherited this problem of nato expansion obama didn't expand nato he did not he inherited this problem it has to be resolved and he goes and worse by the day remember the united
8:44 am
states is still saying that georgia should become a member of nato and saakashvili is saying yes we want to and the united states is even saying the ukraine crane should become a member of nato even though ukraine says it's not interested now these are fundamental conflicts i mean we already had one world with us and georgia there could be another country to finally who'll stephen cohen thank you very much for this interview.
