syria but it's that lakhdar brahimi will be taking over from kofi annan as the next special envoy on the syrian crisis now the seventy eight year old former algerian foreign minister does have pedigree when it comes to dealing with serious conflicts he was instrumental in forming a peace in the late one nine hundred eighty s. in the lebanese civil war in two thousand and one he was sent by the u.n. as the envoy to afghanistan as the united states invaded the country following nine eleven he was again sent to iraq in two thousand and three for the invasion of that country representing the u.n. on that occasion but it's also interesting to look at what type of an envoy he will be kofi annan quite openly spoke to both the syrian rebels and the assad government that if we look a little bit better he means personal life his personal contacts we might see a different approach from him but he's daughter a former b.b.c. and c.n.n.

reaction and insight from foreign affairs analyst richard had barry richard thanks for joining us today now hillary clinton's visit comes as steps up threats to weigh in with force against syria tell us how likely is direct intervention at this point . what i think there's a complete. on the level of the united nations and the money terry and tragedy on the ground is very clear more than two million displaced twenty thousand people killed and. i think. because of a lot of the syrian regime and the most recent one being the prime minister and so so i think what the clinton administration is trying to be right now is really try to coordinate some sort of. approach and possibly also with the help of user and then all of that are of. serious concern because they feel that the opposition has a chance to retain its stronghold and much of the country so i think there's going to be very intensive discussion in turkey not only in terms of some. but also.
12:05 am
safe zones or a no fly zone and regime is also using its force. and forces within a level now turkey's increasingly alarmed by kurdish activity in northern syria having suffered attacks by kurds seeking autonomy in the border region surely turkey has a right to defend itself if it feels threatened. but of course turkey has its own interests i mean there are two sides to us on the one very much concerned with a humanitarian tragedy in the flow of refugees from syria into turkey right now it's the biggest recipients of refugees from syria but more than the u.s. you are right number one concern for not only the civilian leadership but also the military intelligence security part. possible of rice insurgency and what we see in recent weeks is that there's a growing chorus you need. between syria and. kurds in syria and most kurds in the
12:06 am
route and turkey's burden is going through a grueling course. because i've been of the. kurdish majority of regions in southeastern turkey so i think turkey is also trying to make sure that the kurds and not exploit the situation to launch their own kind of. independence hall and see if you can start so i think turkey is a symptom concerned with the humanitarian aspect. but also trying to hedge against the balkan will be frequently now turkey's a nato member but the alliance has so far shunned military action even after syria shot down a turkish plane in june what do you think it'll take to get the blocks to reconsider . well i think a more day i mean on the one hand i think long as the opposition forces the episode will not be able. to full or major regions of your eye going

to turkey will be able to really move forward on sort of military intervention in the in order to he heard waiting for united states and then also a clear signal that. we could see military forces. from this line not only in the just that he's going to be the going to be the one does not want the east on leadership and he's on quandary by stepping in alone we've got the nation and other major. us forces and species concerned but more than that this is a remember the turkey other important neighbor to the east iran is very much against any kind of intervention gregory also richard i'm sorry to interrupt you i'm afraid that's all the time we have thank you for joining us live from the philippines that was foreign affairs analyst richard hey daryn thanks here. so i had the question of who should watch the what governments worldwide struggle with how. to keep us safe on the internet so how do you do it without raising suspicions

reports and expert predictions that such an attack could in fact be around the corner the peepers front page article on friday offered by its senior commentators and reportedly based off of conversations with israel's defense minister says that if it were up to benjamin netanyahu and his minister of defense israel would cause a military attack on iran sometime within the next several months importantly israel's security cabinet ministers have been resisting such an option for now what's important here is while israel is weighing this option we know of course that iran continues to insist that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes exclusively and we have seen the obama administration be careful in urging israel to stick with diplomacy and now of course the big question is whether israel may in fact go ahead with such an attack and whether or not it will wait for a green light from washington importantly experts in this article are quoted to say
12:10 am
that if such an attack were to take place before the u.s. presidential elections there this would cause a major embarrassment to barack obama as well as really cast a blow to his success in these elections because as we know his main rival republican mitt romney has never excluded such an option. well as the media frenzy over a possible strike on iran gains momentum the u.s. president has tightened economic sanctions against the country a new law signed on friday prohibits american entrepreneurs from doing business with the iranian oil sector as well as shipment and insurance companies the measure also blocks stock and gold trading with a number of iranians to. two shows including its central bank. and still to come this hour the egyptian jews fearing for their future. certain. high titles people to forget. articles insight on how wrong he relations between
