10:25 am
themselves this is being played up as a as a nationalist sentiment nationalist fervor it has the potential to to get bigger it will see if it does broaden out into the region we see the u.s. starting its asia pacific pivot so i think it actually has an interest in increasing tensions between japan and china because that makes japan ever more eager to accept an american military presence which up until now there's been quite strong protest against but now we see them renewing miller. joint military exercises in guam etc so so it is increasing the japanese reliance on the american security blanket as the as it were and i think that that plays into american interest and a couple of minutes our team talks with a wiki leaks spokesman about the limitations of journalistic freedom and the future was a blowers across the globe to stay with us. courageous
