3:11 am
only fractionally increased by a couple of percent but we're expected to commit the same job of rehabilitation in such difficult circumstances and in effect. which is where those prisoners are and i don't think that is the answer to society's problems the government thinks it is encouraging tougher sentences to deter more writers like this man who got sixteen months for stealing just two scoops of ice cream but others fear that the cramped conditions this will only if you really offending if you send people to prison. suggests that it is it is nor. is the most effective way of reducing reoffending we know certainly with young people and people in short term prison sentences up to seventy percent of people were. if i'm within twelve months of coming out that can not be

3:15 am
an impact did that make. i guess we can see the impact. there too that was. chosen by the prime minister to show this emotion. of the point. that the prime minister says about it we're going to decide to do with this little room to act. i think there's testament to the pope this do. furthermore i believe if prime minister blair will do anything. close to true even more quarters to find their way to show contempt for him and that room and i believe it will be a good week to a man to see there was a out of the demonstration but what about the protesters themselves i mean they are
3:16 am
taken down there to hance now but they say they will continue to demand a change. yes the camps. are very very strong quietist but it can't last forever school started university starts now discipline is coming and this is the time and next that the next step to translate the path that popular protest into political measures to see how we can change the current government that. the current government is map a government that can change and will grow the new society in israel so i think the next step will be to create a. political entity that can give the solutions and to keep on the path of coming and live. one else protests in israel have been compared to the arab spring dots
3:17 am

a counterinsurgency doctrine we chico we have u.s. marine general martin dempsey the importance is not only limited to the effect that general petraeus pioneered and led the way to recess aetate to revamp grades and to promote the counterinsurgency doctrine in the new century the most significant fact is that general. doctrine has ignited the intellectual awakening all across the military services and well beyond the united states it was the first step into the right direction from the calcified my bunker mentality conventional wishful thinking into the new vision of the world that some of the general trails to be able to respect it remember and that my and for well beyond the military community because it was he's in color actual endeavor with the coin dog training and that precipitated the parity shift in the
