9:08 pm
a showcase for people who've overcome their disabilities and achieve something amazing but hanging over this event is a shadow cast by may just toss it's the firm the government's paying to assess disabled people's ability to work but it's blamed for humiliating the vulnerable and forcing people off benefits as part of the country. they are making money out of other people's misery quite naturally the old many of them sponsoring the paralympics i think is really lost on them and he seems to divide people into the serving disabled and the un to serving tony bradstock went through an at or sest moment which resulted in him losing his entire income for six months he says he was made to feel like a criminal and the process resulted in him attempting suicide that. was going for the world and. this was it. because we sit

9:12 pm
united states wants to retain attach amount of control not only aware bahrain but over the entire persian gulf monarchies in the entire middle east in order to keep that crude oil flowing however they realize that with increasing democratic opposition in all these countries that they can no longer rely on the autocratic dictators to maintain control and this is particularly true in bahrain where the population three quarters of the population are out on the streets on a regular basis telling the government to leave saying we are no longer in support of monarchy we don't respect you and we don't fear you anymore so what the u.s. is doing with president barack obama is to replace these autocratic despot we started with the north african regime egypt mubarak was removed in egypt we had ben ali go we had khadafi go with. the regime in yemen go and so
9:13 pm
now if iraq obama is reelected and november sweeps of this year then he will complete is edge i'm on a transition lead regime. more than one hundred nations have unanimously supported iran's nuclear program as long as it's used for people's full purposes after the nonaligned movement wrapped up in tehran it amounts to a resounding slap in the face for the us and israel have been trying to downplay the role of the gathering the latest i know a report issued during the summit claimed iran has doubled its nuclear capacity by installing newer you radium in richmond centrifuges to iran the object of the documents saying it was all politically motivated geo political analyst eric draitser thinks the i.a.e.a. has never been an impartial body. the iranians do it partially for self preservation they also do it for propaganda purposes and to lend themselves clout on the world stage they have the inherent right according to the nuclear
9:14 pm
nonproliferation treaty that they have the right to have a nuclear program so long as it's for peaceful purposes as is now accepted international law so i think that's the first one the second one of course is the geo political reality that they look around them you look at the map and they see that they are surrounded literally on all sides by the united states or various allies of the united states and the principle is quite clear that the united states will invade nations that do not have the threat of nuclear weapons and the united states does not invade the nations that do have that threat i ate a in many ways is part of what the leader in iran called the overt dictatorship of the united nations that is to say that the i.a.e.a. is always led by us produced think tank individuals like l. barra die or his predecessors who will inevitably execute the agenda of the western powers regardless of whether that contravenes international law cited mohammad
9:15 pm
marandi a professor at the university of tehran says iran would never have launched a nuclear program but for international pressure. the iranians are saying that this report came at a sensitive time to sort of distract attention away from this iranian success the nonaligned movement. conference in tehran has been highly successful instead of iran being isolated the united states has become isolated scented opposed senior figures going to tehran and many major world leaders have come to the country in addition the president. seems to be iran which is a political earthquake the iranians are producing uranium. enrichment at twenty percent for his so if he's in tehran we should then produce medical isotopes the fact that the united states and the europeans tried to prevent iran from
9:16 pm
obtaining this fuel in the past met that meant that they were taking iran in cancer patients hostage the irony here is that the iranians at the beginning had no intention whatsoever to produce your aenima twenty percent and then produce nuclear fuel but americans and the europeans by taking iraq citizens and people hostage for sea iranians to take that politicians senior politicians really know that an attack on iran would be devastating for the united states and not only for its economy but for its global position and its credibility. the washington seems reluctant to endorse a strike on iran israel is getting all geared up for it people in tel aviv have been practicing emergency drills which simulate missile attacks and as artie's policy or reports war preparations have also moved to the ideological arena as well . this fifteen page emergency brochure is being distributed by the israeli army across the country and it puts

9:18 pm
planking on israeli television and it shows the way in general we sit with the israeli army officers and they're trying to convince him to him this the put him in his reign of attack on him in the state presumably in russia we can go ahead and stage to take a bite out of the shop to pay for not getting in front of him and see fit coming up behind us don't let go not with the israeli misinterprets we need to have given them the green light to the operation of the missiles dr paul ryan and you have those who are on the roof situation and the israelis so we have been putting up there with great and it does seem as if there is something on the go we have heard some israeli politicians on record saying that a strike on iran is going to happen soon but the official line to be from the government in terms of. this pressure and when we fight like that it's nothing little just in general public when people hate me for no one in eight
