2:06 pm
concerning this case is that. because the outset made this is planned he wrote manifesto and published it outlined his plan in this plan was to do an outrageous criminal act and then use the court proceedings later this around the world and in that sense. one might say that he has succeeded in that he himself has taken the stand that starts first tomorrow and there's been of course a lot of debate about that here in norway. to what extent he should be allowed to do that in the court case he has a monster this called an my numerous witnesses extremist witnesses both from the extremist right side and islamic extremists to sort of. build under this notion that he has that there is a war a clash of civilizations and there's been a debate in some of the witnesses i've been called and have actually refused to go and which they don't want to be part of this propaganda that he is using the court

2:09 pm

2:20 pm
in the region the egyptian military has been widely accused of cracking down on peaceful protesters and egyptians want to put an end to the overreaching power of their military but that seems to have had no effect on washington's decision to keep going with business as usual with the injured business as usual ceased to be a reality almost a decade ago unfortunately our leadership in the white house and in the state department have not caught up with that reality the new reality is it is not business as usual we are not buying loyalty but not even the egyptian military's loyalty may be enough to secure business as usual between washington and cairo the muslim brotherhood is the ruling power in egypt's parliament now and their candidate could well when presidential election in may the rather hood has declared israel america's closest ally in the region enemy number one we will not be able to

2:23 pm
about exploration which is a very difficult technologically difficult process and russia lacks the know how in order to do so and it's getting this know how from its american partners the second factor is of course the legal fact that ross now had to abandon its partnership with b.p. basically leave b.p. at the altar as this deal contradicted already existing agreements between b.p. and its russian partners in a joint venture t m k b p and the third factor is of course money because it requires a lot of investment we're talking about three point two billion dollars of initial investment but the companies admit that this value could go up ten fold we could see tens maybe even hundreds of billion dollars of investment coming in on these projects and of course foreign companies required some kind of sweetener to go ahead with this deal and they got one last week when the government announced new
