a new austerity both to secure another bailout. that's an interview with investigative journalist a so winstanley focusing on the turbulent situation iran syria. today i'm joined by a so when stanley an investigative journalist rajan on the middle east and his latest piece delves into the discrepancies amongst the casualty figures in the syrian crisis and he said thanks for speaking to r.t. now from our most quoted sources for those casualty figures is the syrian observatory for human rights but you've recently found out information that suggests it can't necessarily ways be trusted why is that i think first of all you have to establish who really is this is the syrian observatory for human rights. in our investigation we didn't really uncover any particular reason to doubt the genuine abilities figures. but there is another group led by this man
1:32 pm
with a very his figures are slightly higher than the original observatory's groups the syrian observatory for human rights led by romeo. makes a point. they say you know they're independent human rights and that they record all deaths whether they're soldiers syrian soldiers loyal to the regime all the defectors all the protesters as. now is very spooky painted as well that their figures for the number of. military there are much much lower. seems to be you know a certain agenda there and behind it all seems to me basically. although both sides deny differences in in military intervention essentially in political differences there is different trends in the syrian opposition and mainly between people who support outside intervention and the protestors who don't so you've got groups like
1:33 pm
the syrian national council which are now openly in favor of a no fly zone which to me seems ridiculous because you know there isn't any even claimed that i know of of. the syrian. for all its many crimes there's no claim that it's problems people so a no fly zone just seems the political pretext of greater me and ran me up the right man and the original syrian observatory for human rights group is against that that it was going to say we don't support any of the lies and they said that sami and sons of the east these two sorry these two groups they both seem to although they deny direct links to different factions of the opposition they seem their position seems to line up why hasn't this from internal reforms in the syrian opposition been more widely reported do you think it's damaging for all the potentially damaging for the original syrian observatory for human rights if they get into a slanging match about or with just two sides frightening to the sort of thing and
1:34 pm
they they would they i mean they don't want to speak around very to mean the original syrian observatory group because of that last one factor another factor is this just embarrassing for example for the b.b.c. to say well we didn't properly check this guy and we put him on b.b.c. news channel as a spokesperson for the syrian observatory which has become a really highly quotes it's source in the news can we still trust it they think there is a good question i think i think it still needs to be looked into more i think it's very difficult that this is duration in syria it's it is very very difficult to get reliable information from anyone. and the main reason for that is the fact that the regime has not allowed free access to journalists and of because of is the ongoing crime that is committed wish to seem to be. hopefully not but things do
1:35 pm
seem to be spiraling towards the scenario of civil war i think well it's what is good that it's journalists are open to the views of activists on the ground which is i mean essentially what was the simplicity of human rights that's where they get their information from these activists and eyewitnesses on the ground i think it's good for journalists to be open so that at the same time they do need to check them so i think there is a tendency for. the media in this country in america to accept it's more uncritically the views of activists on the ground in the case of syria and also iran because it they're seen as anti western regimes whereas if it's in the case of things like palestine for example they far far far less regular for them to take the views of activists on the ground how willing has the foreign media would you say in its consumption of the figures published by the azhar we group
1:36 pm
a lot of the mainstream news channels sort of were taken in by his area and he's appeared on the b.b.c. unit appeared on zero english and c.n.n. and probably others. as a spokesperson for the observatory he's very are direct rounds groups and he was never a spokesperson for them his kind of narrative which is becoming increasingly shrill working it plays into the narrative of to do something we meaning you know the west or the british government or the american government or whatever we need to intervene or we need to do something it plays into that kind of narrative i mean for example periods last month on. straying into any news there were genocides which of what's happening now i mean that that that seems to me exaggerated for all the crimes of the brush ourselves regime he's kind of see. to be inflating it which
1:37 pm
to me is is parenting to your position and that's what people who i've spoken to who are part of the opposition or sympathize with your permission asked why they're kind of they don't like this kind of approach because the crimes of the regime and bad enough without some kind of. using words like unified. syria observatory the original group emphasized to me that they're against in the flood zone and that's part of it doesn't seem to be picked up by the media in general that although they call their figures a lot they don't quote the fact that well they said explicitly to me in heaven capra said to me that we were against a no fly zone we don't want a war in this country we want we just want democracy. so again that the media seems to be quite selective of the parts that they pick. does i suppose the reality of. bloodshed on the ground those does play into it and see what's going
1:38 pm
on in the u.n. to certain extent but i think there's greater political forces at play here how damaging could a foreign intervention be in syria any answer a military intervention in syria would be. very different from worse a kurd it's. a regional conflagration. and it could even increase support for the regime in country we saw we see what happened in the case of iran army grows opposition. from within the there is rhetoric from the outside of threats of either bombing from israel or . the u.s. well all this talk of immediate threats i like regimes to then say i look you have to support us because otherwise you're going to go in and you're going to get
1:39 pm
bombed and broad based opposition people they're not general position they're just agents and so on and so forth so. i think an outside intervention. in terms of whether it's just the so-called no fly zone or any kind of military intervention very much many things worse the arab league solution to the syrian crisis is for the present as to see power to his deputy is that fair i think that's a way of keeping the regime in place and changing the figurehead and that seems to been very much the g.c.c. plan in yemen for example where they wanted. to to step down and. as i think i'm very proud of our parents who vice president was. the resume regime essentially staying the same there's a look what's going on in the region is there's very much a cancer revolution to their way of revolution to the sweats the region the horrible sense. in is in uprising the successful in the cold.
1:40 pm
when heavy there's a very powerful counter revolution which is led by saudi arabia and backed by the americans. or so by in a more indirect way by israel. the aim of this krantz revolution is all means to keep regimes in power and if necessary shading the heads but and so you see that happening in egypt where the military rulers were able to preserve themselves by dispenser and i think these same powers would they are open so that happening in syria keeping the same there really care about democracy perceval just want to know that whatever is best for their interests here and if if there would be a more manageable. regime which then had a different figurehead they certainly go for that and so in stanley thank you thanks.
