"Empire" of Aljazeera - War & Revolution - Promo

Europe has dramatically changed its tune. Having once embraced Arab autocrats it is now supporting democracy in the Middle East, selectively.

France and Britain, who not so long ago were openly courting Gaddafi's oil money, were quick to send their fighter jets across the Mediterranean. And Italy belatedly joined the bombing operation, signalling another volte-face for Berlusconi, who had touted his 2008 "Friendship Treaty" with Libya as his greatest foreign affairs success. Raw-News with cameraman Enrico Marra covered the shooting in Italy. Watch here the promo
