9:12 am
having more than four thousand american military personnel on the ground may be viewed by the bahraini government as assurance from them but for some it's out of date and running out of time. the irony about the persian gulf dictatorships is they don't really need to be submissive at all they do have power energy power and the facts of these persian gulf dictators continue to be so. to washington and even london displays what kind of colonial mentality must surround these dictatorships families being left alone to sort out a solution isn't easy but. they at least acknowledged transgression against their own civilians in the ugly scenes between protesters and police was that a human rights violations and behind us the very human rights violations in america there were human rights violations and i think the. saying is that allowed no it's not allowed and that's why we are working. today in which they were

9:15 am
front group if you want observers is already in syria and everyone agrees that the u.n. needs more eyes on the ground to make sure that all sides of the conflict are doing their part because the plan addresses government forces as well as opposition forces and you do have people there who don't like to plan the opposition has not come up with a common response or whether they're going to engage in a dialogue with the government to work out a political solution to the crisis and that dialogue is also part of the plan as far as the u.s. washington says it supports the plan but at the same time they kind of expect it's failure here is what secretary of state hillary clinton said the u.s. is preparing for the potential failure of kofi annan plan to end the violence in syria and will take additional steps against the syrian government if it does russia on the other hand sees kofi annan plan as the only way to bring about peace in syria and the you want observer mission as crucial to verify whether everyone is committed to just this tuesday the rebels blew up an army truck in damascus there
