says that the air strikes prevented a massacre in benghazi why are you right and they're wrong well i think the longer term effects would be even worse than the effects might have been on benghazi but i don't actually accept the government's argument about benghazi either if you look at the guardian reports on the day before the airstrikes took place from benghazi it's clear that the rebels in benghazi stop gadhafi. before he got beyond the suburbs and i think it would have been impossible for a force of maybe tens of thousands of soldiers to take the city of a million people so i don't accept that that was a sufficient justification for the war in the first place i also think there is some evidence again report in the guardian newspaper that he actually moved me to take shelter from possible their attacks so far from producing the effect of that the government said it would produce the opposite effect for your position is just stand back leave well alone and let them sort themselves out well i certainly think
that when the revolution takes place in the country it's the business of the people in that country to conduct the revolution and my point about western intervention would be this i don't think that they did intervene in order to assist the revolution process i think they intervened in order to get control over evolutionary process and we begin to see now in the weeks since the western intervention but there are pro western figures emerging as the dominant figures within the book and in this direction of them they're the same people who only yesterday were in the regime who were feeling very happily with the west for the last decade so i think that the shaping and molding of the plane goes the uprising in ways which are compatible with the interests of the western powers whereas. regional rebellion certainly wasn't what damage do you think western this type of westerners all meant does to a regional uprising how does it corrupts the original purpose of it well i think it's very very clear in the in the libyan case that there are people now coming to
the fore who were trained in the west have links with the west have links with the west and security services who wouldn't have come to the top had the west not intervene it was a democratic structure in benghazi the transitional national council was a body represented by twenty local council beneath it but when the western powers intervene the people become selected to become the leadership of it are people who have the ear of the west therefore the whole democratic process of representing the libyan people become distorted there are people who know the ear of the west who are the authorities or people who can broker the peals over with the intervention of the people from broker the deal that's taking place with qatar about the sale of oil the whole principle the popular democratic revolution becomes corroded corrupted and demeaned by the intervention of the western powers and what did you experience in the region what's your feeling about the sort of sense that prevails
on the streets now i think is a very very powerful impulse both to have a democratic society but also i think the roots of the revolutions are to do with a rejection of the near liberal economic sort of let's face it the mubarak was very strongly associated with the neo liberal economic policy with privatizing state industry and i think a lot of the the fire in the engine of egyptian revolution was to do with a rejection of that and we can see by the massive strike why it has taken place actually in the two days before barack felber massively expanded since then but this is a very very big issue for many millions of egyptians we know that the u.g. couple to be the union into an easy. it was at the heart of the revolution which overthrew ben ali and we know that economic and complete anomic questions were central to the beginning of that revolution i believe will be central to the future of it as well so democracy yes but a rejection of mere liberalism and also i think
a very deep dissatisfaction with the alliance between the dictators in the region of the western powers and the state of israel so i think that in all three registers political democracy economic challenged nearly a prism challenge to the imperial structure of the region we're going to see very very profound developments and you mentioned iraq and a lot of people are comparing this to iraq and afghanistan but this is a bit different isn't it i mean after all these are strikes do you support what was essentially initially a popular uprising yes but as i say it was an intervention not to save revolution but to subvert revolution and and it's as well here is also to remember an important element of the history in iraq especially actually from the first gulf war because there were no flows with no fly zones were imposed on northern and southern iraq just after the coalition had defeated saddam hussein they lived
saddam hussein's helicopters fly under the cover of the no fly zone to put down the rising of the marsh arabs in the size it's not inconceivable actually that if they come to a cease fire if they come to some kind of settlement they will allow gadhafi to put down the remnants of a rebellion here as well so the fact that we're fighting it that you know doesn't preclude that it didn't in iraq the fact that a no fly zone by will be used against the rebels in the future could this turn into a when out there in iraq and afghanistan people are warning that it could go among them the turkish prime minister i mean there doesn't seem to be any such thing anymore as a sort of quick and clean it out operation well the difficulty is here that the coalition forces are actually jammed up by the political developments surrounding this. interventional they're obviously very very concerned about full scale military intervention on the ground so in that sense i think the antiwar opinion both here and in the united states has prevented a full scale invasion so far but as any military analyst will tell you you can't
win a ground war simply with air power and they aren't obviously winning it and that's why there's all this talk about stalemate that a stalemate is very hard to resolve without the. without the deployment of ground troops i sincerely hope that that doesn't happen it would be a massive curation of the situation if that were to be the case but if it doesn't happen then i think we are looking at a very very messy situation which may lead to the partition of of libya may lead to a prolonged civil war actually if the west are kept out funnily enough you might have been over sooner and it is the war in iraq there was a huge public outcry you know hundreds of thousands of people out on the streets demonstrating against it and public opinion is increasingly against this war in libya but do you think that the main thing that the government has learned from iraq is how to sell a war to the public no i think it's learned not to commit itself to
a war very quickly see i mean it was obvious that there was going to be so little massive ground invasion i mean apartment the other came after the invasion of afghanistan that was absolutely clear what was going to work we're going to have i think the public opinion is actually calibrated to the degree of move from all over the fact is avoiding a ground war i think is reflected in the opinion polls of people who are against what's happening but they don't see it on the same scale as the iraq war which indeed it is and yet i think if there were any sign that there were going to be a serious deployment of ground troops in libya you would have an absolutely massive response partly as we can see from the opinion polls. there is a majority against the interim. but there are very large number of turnovers that would alter very very quickly if there were talk of a ground war i think what role do you think the media plays and he just said i think an intervention like that i think the main difficulty with the meeting is
that it doesn't have a sense of history not even over a very short period actually and so it's trapped within what happened today the trouble is you can never understand what happened last year what happened yesterday in the previous week in the previous year in the previous decade and so it's the struggle to recall exactly those exact point because they found him to the billions of pounds practically every western corporations control the oil he says he's in libya he was feted in the academic institutions and i was in this country and this is very very important to recall if we want to have some it's terrible sense about what we might be doing in the region and finally and briefly where do you see this going in the in the short to medium term very difficult to tell i think it is grinding down to a stalemate it's very difficult to see how you could actually hold down the entire population of the east of the country and it's also very difficult to see how i
want to present circumstances. the rebels and backgrounds and compel can take tripoli and i don't believe that the western intervention girl fundamentally resolved in a way what is going to be kind of institutionalize and make permanent. the situation civil conflict rather than resolving it so i hope that the comfort where the rebellion because it shows the school. hasn't helped has what we feel we have to say as above is actually causing civilian casualties like the music. industry. and health for generations to come because this i simply hold the balance against against the. we would be back to the trademark a good thing oh my resources within the revolution itself which might find itself about would be a quick turnaround it would be trotting out all the people marry who are in the leadership of the benghazi rebellion who are pro western who are old gadhafi hand
some very long links with the west and that's quite hard to imagine as well so i think western intervention has made an incredible mess which will last for a long time in libya thank you very much. who says. this if it brings further assurance to torture chambers and the secret police are gone forever. to get to see the couple. too much occupied afghanistan. now occupy sales at guantanamo bay.
