continuing to. protest. surely. it's going to. continue. for the weekly. headlines today. the white house has warned syria's president he'll pay a quote price if he goes through with chemical. claims he's preparing no evidence was provided support. correspondent. but shah al assad has. one really bad habit and that habit is and you need does
this when he's winning he ruins everything by doing something really stupid for no reason at all. take acids army now they're crushing slavek state liberating vast swaths of syria and out of the blue comes this the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime i said knows the probable cause and sequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now that could ruin him by giving his enemies the opportunity of a pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal
a classic super villain booth stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind of villain batman would go after and america is not mine. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if asked how does something really dumb for a new reason again the u.k. will join the us in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action if you've been following events in syria recently you knew they aren't kidding the united states has attacked assad five times what they see is self-defense problem. justifying the prolonged conflict isn't easy
once the voters don't want another gung ho bombing campaign they learn their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions and you only thing left is to wait for asaad to give them a cause and since he's a comic book supervillain well it's just a part of the script meantime moscow house washington's ultimatum to syria calling it a provocation which looks like a threshold for a full blown us military intervention one is reasonable it is even when you're both statements from washington we also knew that the us officials refused to confirm the claims with any facts so we don't know what these conclusions are based on the situation looks like a massive probation both military and informational its star getting not only syria
or russia as well as good if the war mean if it is likely that what we are seeing at the moment is the threshold of a new intervention. i look at the us experts and they say openly that extremists could use these claims by washington make provocations and shift blame onto the syrian government meanwhile the u.s. state department was a queer old over the lack of evidence to support this claim the matter was rejected i mean statements it's an intelligence matter best evidence kids shared with us about this potential preparation for the use of chemical weapons because that was an absolutely right and nor would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you guys believe that it's in your interests you do put out what you say it's evidence of truthful. intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you to face of america is looking for some sort of provocation in syria and is actually putting. pretext is for some sort of possible intervention
and if history is anything to go by then trump definitely does not have any qualms in actually attacking syria militarily on the ground as we've seen trump does seem like he wants to do some sort of intervention and he's looking for a reason to do so and what people need to comprehend is that we're at a stage in the war now where the assad government is almost. a victory towards the end and this wasn't the case a few years ago so the assad government would have no reason logical or rational or military reason to actually use these weapons at this moment in time where the rebels have every single reason to provoke such an attack and to possibly use these weapons themselves and see the reaction that they want from the united states and their allies international the united states u.n. ambassador claimed the lack of any recent chemical incidents in syria has been due to washington's threat of retaliation i can tell you that due to the president's actions we did not see and i would like to think that the president saved many
n.s.a. men women and children be have mr madison and bassett or haley essentially claiming credit for the non occurrence of event that was unlikely to have occurred in the first place it's very strange and it makes you wonder if this was all some kind of a big what we call a kabuki dance a big show in noise to make them look tough that effective maybe advance of mr trump's meeting with mr putin at the g. twenty. washington says the preparations are claims to have seen a similar to the ones carried out before a chemical incident in syria's province back in april of this week the un's chemical weapons was confirmed the victims of that incident were exposed to sarin gas and a statement from the water also pointed out that its mandate did not include identifying any perpetrator adding that his team was unable to visit the site of the attack so the report's conclusions are based on post-mortems and biomedical softballs
collected from victims who were moved to quote a neighboring country we discussed the findings of the report with russia's representative to the group. there are little expressions in the suit like the team was on the able to pull the team they will all of these. daunting force of all we were unable to will determine where runs on. the field to serious little league. teach all the. side the you know it will be. cool for speed goals to with two three three we can't books in europe pretty. much since there's a mission so. just the serious and put it in sections to put it
mildly. there is a mission and that is these are people that. it was impossible to implement the chain not past the point the team. will simply put on to school and he says they really didn't. reach reason to do something good. but somebody more used to be going to somebody and they just absolutely no evidence cole it was a deal and in another development from syria israel says it attacked a syrian military position in response to a stray mortar shell fired from somewhere over the border israeli defense forces targeted an artillery battery in the golan heights a syrian territory occupied by israel since the one nine hundred sixty s. as follows five almost identical incidents in the area throughout just the past week is ready prime minister previously said his country would not tolerate any
spillover from the syrian conflict and will respond to all incoming fire all investigative journalist rick starting believes israel is actually escalating the situation. as the syrian army have been says and slowly but surely it is crushing the the armed opposition the terrorists within syria israel is escalating its attacks and its intervention it's really dangerous i mean a couple of facts about that situation number number one is that there's been nobody injured on the in the israeli occupied territory and yet israel has attacked in two syrian soldiers were killed just a couple of days ago so it's extremely dangerous it's clearly a violation of syrian sovereignty. for t.v. channel video cameras have been giving c.n.n. a fair few headaches this week and softer
a string of embarrassments over the network's coverage of russia and one video its senior political commentator revealed his true attitudes towards the country what was what he thinks could have been the speed of the russian oh such a thing to be nothing really. more revealing videos were released this week by the investigative journalism group project veritas with more details his caliber. yet another leak related to c.n.n. from james o'keefe and project vera toph's that was van jones who briefly served in the obama administration and is now a commentator for c.n.n. in the clip he says that the the russia thing is a nothing burger and now it's important to be clear here we don't exactly know what he's referring to about the russia thing could be the russian investigation could be the allegations about trump the context of the clip is not exactly clear who this leak comes on just in the aftermath of another recent leaks from project veritas and jon bon a field an important producer for c.n.n.
says that the russia story is the polite term is nonsense that was just recently released as well and it's important to know that these videos that are coming out are not without controversy james o'keefe is personally facing a million dollar lawsuit at the hands of a contractor he interviewed after he interviewed them posing as someone else and this was a contractor allegedly working with the democratic party so there's a lot of questions that still remain and we asked the people behind the video what the russia thing refused. we do the entire video out there i mean people can judge for themselves sometimes you have to infer things from the conversation but that's certainly my interpretation and i think that's the way the mainstream media is reading it that's what the way the drudge report and look at the line ok he strikes again in the president of the united states just to a radio urson the instagram you know so i miss it may very well it's not just c.n.n. i want to make this very clear if you are in the mainstream media in america you
know you are telling lies you are getting people you are keeping stories you're keeping the public from knowing the truth you're on our list you're watching the weekly here on our to international thanks for joining us so it was at the start of the week that saw the british prime minister a minority government by handing a huge chunk of cash to northern ireland's do you paint that story on the rest of the top stories of the week just. one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with cyber crime. who did it why did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks mean you've mentioned one across the recent won't run somewhere or attack it's still unclear where that originated from so our clear message to government is to work together around the world to minimize this risk to grow those relationships and make sure that diplomacy is the key to everything.
in case you're new to the game this is how it works in the economy is built around quite. confirmation from washington to washington post media the media. voters elect. to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. good to have you with us today it was the start of the week that saw the u.k.'s minority conservative government finally sign a deal with northern ireland's democratic unionist party to shore up its power with
the deal came at a price with prime minister theresa may having to stump up a million pounds for the province over the next two years we have reached an agreement with the conservative party on support for government and parliament this agreement will operate to deliver a stable government in the united kingdom's national interest at this vital time the agreement will see the prime minister back track on a number of key election pledges including reforms to pensions and benefits do you piers also agree to adjust some of its key policies aussies and i see it as being taking a closer look i know you said he was very nice because. instead of stepping down the british prime minister had a different plan but it seemed like whichever way she turned there was potential for trouble the tories have penned a deal with the democratic unionist party of northern ireland which is opposed to
hard drugs that something may has accepted as a possibility on top of that they do you have been criticised for their policies on same sex marriage and abortion as well as previously inks with violent paramilitary groups in northern ireland not a perfect ally but the ten d u p m.p.'s have been crucial for theresa may so much so she was ready to pay their support came with a hefty price tag of one billion pounds to be spent over the next two years that's in addition to the previously announced five hundred million in funds to northern ireland and who is footing the bill you may ask as always the times they are. taxpayers resent politicians scooping up deals behind closed doors that invariably end with their cash being thrown wherever it's politically advantageous rather than where it could be best spent to recently called it a good deal and the do you be are delighted if you think the same applies to scotland and wales think again this is the worst kind of pork barrel politics which is shredded the last vestiges of credibility of this weekend prime minister it is
outrageous that the prime minister believes she can secure her own political future by throwing money at northern ireland was completely ignoring the rest of the u.k. despite the british government having now plastered together a solution the question is for how long will it stick after all the irony is that a mere seven tory m.p.'s switching sides would potentially be enough for a majority to slip away once they see a party funded opposition labor leader jeremy corbin claim the deal was not in the national interest but rather in may own interest and you voiced concern about whether money for the agreement was coming from and the fact there was no investment for the rest of the country we discussed this deal with various analysts . managed to get this group the little coalition together but the do you pretty whole ten see she's still a minority government i think she's going to have real problems lasting i certainly think they'll be in an election by toba i think she'll find it very very difficult to hold this government together because don't forget she's going to be pleased to
see you please she's also got a really. divided party on the conservative party is still massively divided over the major issue at the moment which is breaks it out of the e.u. so it might make you a little bit was more secure for a few days but this is no one so i think it bites that obviously makes position more secure because with the do you play they have a working majority of thirteen of course i don't know your ploys to confidence and supply matters government isn't going to get much of a legislative program through but that was over didn't in the thin nature of the queen's speech in a sense it's save the conservatives what could have been a great deal of trouble with some of their own supporters who are very unhappy about these changes it's going to make it more difficult for the conservatives to balance the books which they're having problems with anyway in terms of trying to reduce the budget deficit to manageable level. thousands voiced their anger over the current government in central london yesterday protesters demanded to reserve
may's resignation holding pockets reading tories out i'm not one day more demonstrators i walk for around three kilometers i'm the focus of complaints for austerity and privatization along with the bonds for better education housing and living standards here and i'll tell you we spoke to some of the activists this historic numbers of people here today it's really quite unprecedented and you know i think that to show use the level is just such such people have to discover these been a very long standing in growing resentment especially i think you know the young the millennium goals every generation now where people are realising the future if it is bleak unless they get out and do something about it and so i think that's what we're seeing here today is a lot of young people often a lot of protests and these people all you know so much younger crowd the normal sense is they really have a job or say certainly did say you pay that coalition partners come play on some issues but in parliament so i think the the idea of this is to bring us all
together see say yes we'd like to achieve these inmates it said to leave now i would like another election and we're confident that the progress that parties could win on that i would say in an election but also said to unite around some policy measures or we can push for an alderman where the time stay we could see the government night i think by itself in a very very dangerous position election day by the by the lack of success that he had in those. nine twenty am here in moscow at the stage is set for the final of the fifo confederations cup which is being hosted by russia. former england player stan collymore bringing you our special coverage of the tournament. the final germany against chile on paper they look pretty well balanced who do you

watching the tournament chile and germany were among the fans who bought the tickets so lots of them there there are they've been anticipating good final text which for a moment to put in long two trips over a month i haven't seen so much as anybody other than but their beautiful eyelids that made man woman and child racism hooliganism where receipt. well there isn't any apparently across reports across the whole of the media or across the world as well and nobody has reported anything i think is to the delight of fee for particular russia as well but johnny of fanzine it was full of praise we were hearing about violence about incidents holy go. about. racism when we had nothing we had no incidents everything run smoothly everything run perfectly we're hearing about the infrastructure. beautiful football stadiums transport works visa free entry with
free transportation between the venues by train this is something that does not happen in many other countries were big events since the time that the world cup bid was announced and whether she would be and then about the confederations cup we've been hearing about the negatives about the potential for races and the potential of the infrastructure way but it's all coming together and for once we cannot concentrate on the positives it's all about a cracking game of football between two of the world's best teams here at the magnificent stadium to petersburg on sunday night the stadiums are ready the trouble is. a lot of stick to say from all the four cities has been absolutely fantastic. i would say that you know it's not like people are looking for problems and about you not hearing anything but. absolutely. the. only family was not. from syria i like you

the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive immunoglobulin that my body gets and some bodies that i cannot produce itself around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity no one does this because it helps people it's just that one of the side effects is that it helped this applies more. to put the money on your car immediately. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plasma as well as come from their own motor car and. one of the risks of paid donation. then is prove that the frequency of this is money paid.
planned welcome to all to part for much of the syrian war the anti iranian air of consensus has played handsomely into israel's hands and that is until the friends of syria group imploded from within but turkey and qatar are now being more open than their defiance of the saudis and the american stance growing ever more unpredictable to what is a plea for israel to able to discuss that i'm now joined by golan chair one of israel's senior peace negotiators mr sharon is such an order such a pleasure to have you on the show thank you very much for your time i thank you now it's believed that israel has largely stayed out of the syrian war even though occasionally it did conduct airstrikes as well as had some a system assistance program going on to how the anti government groups operating in
and around the golan heights what is your sense about this conflict where is it heading now. well it seems that the conflict this terrible tragic bloodshed is moving slowly towards some kind of subsided arrangement and israel has been very consistent since the outset of this conflict it does not intervene in this internal tragedy we've been on the sidelines since the outset as you know except for one thing and this is treating the war wounded who ever needed assistance or life saving got it from israel well mr sze you are you mentioned a phrase subsided there arrangement and if you look at the latest events in syria the americans took down the syrian jet a few days ago the real.
