"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this week, a special hour of discussion from the World Economic Forum that has been taking place in Davos, Switzerland.
First up, a GPS exclusive with the King of Jordan: will fresh elections quell months of public discontent? Fareed explores the implications for the region.
Also on the show, a 1-on-1 with Dmitry Medvedev, in which Russia’s prime minister addresses the question of a potential new Cold War between his country and the United States, corruption and Moscow’s role in Syria’s civil war.
“From the outset, the Russian Federation was not an exclusive ally of Syria or President Assad. We had good relations with his father and him, but he had much closer allies among the European states,” Medvedev says. “We never said that our goal was to preserve the current political regime, or making sure that President Assad stays in power. That decision has to be made by the Syrian people.”
And in What in the World, the Algerian hostage crisis: sign of a grave new terror threat?
The World we live in:
-Almighty God gave to Satan authority, for the time being;
-Evil things are considered as High-Techs and those who created are called, smart;
How about having a table round discussion and confessions with:
Former and current U.S. Presidents vs Russian leaders vs Chinese leaders vs N Korean leaders, together in one room?
Fareed we need to exercise caution in the way encourage full blown democracy in the Arab world. From the practices in Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia etc the news has not been good. We need to encourage the leaders to open the political space just a little and watch events unfold. For Russia they have my support by not turning their back on Syria. Look at Iraq and Afghanistan has America not literally turned its back on them! Democracy may be good but it needs time and space to be nurtured before it can grow and develops to become a culture.
"Evolve instead of Revolt"
Smartest concept I have ever heard. Is he legal to run for Governor of Texas? What a (actual) genius. Good interviews.
Excellent interviews and I enjoyed watching them. Good info.
No wonder Putin sends Medvedev abroad to attend international summits and events. Medvedev portrays himself well – reasonable and amenable. It's a pity that Putin didn't let him stay for a second term as president. Medvedev seems to be decent, unfortunately weak in the eyes of the Russians.
One day Jordan might turn out to be another Bahrain. The only difference is that the loyalists of the Hashemite Kingdom will belong to be minority, outnumbered by Jordanians of Palestinian origin, who like the Shia majority in Bahrain demands more rights from their Sunni leadership. Kind Abdullah didn't sound optimistic. Indeed he has loads of problems at home to deal with.
