foreign policy realists that's what they say for this and your public come up with a career stretching across five american expert ministrations so we'd like to discuss several foreign policy issues with you and your view what are the consequences for the u.s. middle east policy after the toppling of mubarak in egypt and ben ali in tunisia you know one is always caught off guard by revolutions. because there are a surprise if there were a surprise to president ben ali and to president mubarak it's hardly unusual or be a surprise to the united states. the instabilities in the region are of course obvious and have been for a long time the question is can may be handled can it be dealt with. in a plot for sensible way or does it have to involve.
unrest and violence and i think you know we have to wait and see so far the egyptian crisis has been managed i think quite rowdy rejection armies behave i think very well leave their repressing their demonstrations and your encouraging so . it's changes coming to the region and that was that was inevitable as the old leaders. pashmina see so i think we need to be careful but not to mistake fundamentally fundamentally our policy should change in our policy is the development of open societies cooperativeness and progression of development for all of the countries of the region and i'm told from the point iraq president obama has started withdrawing troops from iraq once all the forces including security personnel leave the country in your view is there
a danger of iraq slipping back into the civil war i think iraq is in or is interpretor precarious state there are still in fact forming a government months after an election to do so there are sharp divisions inside the country. and it's hard to say exactly how they will develop i would be more comfortable. with a somewhat longer american presence so that they would be more inclined to solve their problems by discourse rather than strength but we'll have to wait and see that you don't think that. the danger is there oh i think the danger is there i think there are still still many forces tending to pull our country the side indeed one of the reasons for the strength of the
dictatorship was to hold the country together but i am hopeful that the people will see the benefits of compromising their differences rather than insist upon them and destroying the state do you think that the nato mission in afghanistan is doomed just like the britons failed in the nineteenth century in the soviet union just think two years ago no i don't think so because i think we are the united states is there for a different reason which is not to control afghanistan but to make sure that al qaeda or other terrorist bad don't use afghanistan as a base from which to attack us you anybody else so yeah our our goal is much more limited and i think they're for. one can have more optimism and one did
at the previous occupants of afghanistan you yourself i think have been saying that the term war on terror. was compromised it has indeed been compromised how does that marry with the you know with the terrorism threat but it's not going anywhere where terrorism threat is one thing a war is another and terrorism is a technique of combat it is not you can't make war on a technique so i think war on carer's was designed to motivate the people for a maximum effort terrorist something that we all have to deal with and i'm going to have to for wong period of time it's in part a product of the modern age like television like radio people are now politicized
by issues that they didn't care about before because they didn't know about and so i think it's a long term struggle against extremists who want to destroy a civilization that they can't cope with it seems that there is no progress in stopping the iranian nuclear program and in your view what are the chances that the united states may resort to the military option i think there is still the possibility to avoid a confrontation. i think iran is a case that's relative related to the reason that i'm here and that is cooperation between the united states and russia are no whole nuclear fuel cycle. iran has every right. to have nuclear power that does not have the right girl nuclear weapons and i think.
the extent to which we can cooperate to induce iran to take the opportunities that are available that is there really are fuel for russia to return a nuclear fuel not insist on enriching its own uranium or doing things right. and i wouldn't rule out that. that we would be successful how much is you know is this the opinion shared in the united states i don't think i'm alone i'm not sure but i don't think there's any eagerness. to deal with iran by force and i think the extent the increasing degree of cooperation between the united states and russia on this issue will have a big impact. on iran and what it decides to do but there is also quite strong
mood within the government of israel and sort of you know they support and it's time on iran well israel has what it considers and existential problem with iran but i think if we can deal with the nuclear problem. then israel will be reassured that what is your assessment was the recent. and asked by the obama administration sees a girl brought any serious results it's not what could be the reasons i was a little disappointed for a year or so i am now encouraged i think now that we're beginning on a much more positive course. both sides have ratified the new start treaty and that is. a major step forward in terms of renewing our cooperation of sense the. nuclear cooperation agreement the one twenty three agreement as we call it
is now in force and i think the the the warmth between the two and the progress we've made together with respect to iran for example and i think even on afghanistan there is a sense that we pull the we have a common problem there common of the export of terror the export of heroin so all those things. are leading and i feel good about the reset now why were you disappointed then did you feel that those two little happening yes yes i thought that i thought the language of reset was good but but there didn't seem to be much follow through for a time and now it just took time to catch more but now i feel very good about it since you've already mentioned start what is its political impact on the u.s. russian relations i think what it really does is that is continue
the framework that we've built up really over fifty years of how to talk and how to deal. with the military nuclear issues that if it continues that process and now we can look at ways we still possess over ninety percent of the world's nuclear weapons so we need to work together to ensure that those weapons are never never need be used and that is to increase the stability of the nuclear bomb so whatever the problem between us there is no incentive. he is a man i think now the way it's clear for us to sit down and have that kind of discussion and there's still there's so many nuclear weapons out there but just not just a matter of numbers it's doing the kinds of things that ensure those weapons are never going to be used and that take that'll take a lot more discussion negotiation thoughtfulness on both sides but i'm sure we can
make progress now that we've laid the groundwork as a scowcroft thank you very much for this in spirit and you're very welcome. place. looks well to the. period in a blizzard of winter blues easier to slow since try out some textbooks bush has got the olympic caliber excitement in its southern melting skill trainers to keep you in top form and watch life on the go along carving the trail the sochi twenty four . and six colors you update here on a look we've got the future covered. clusters the same as the spears let me tell you what i see here the real craziness the price of oil percival
