russian foreign ministry has condemned what it calls a smear campaign against the syrian government ministry spokeswoman money as a cause of it was referring to video circulating online claiming to show the aftermath of a chemical weapons attack ordered by president assad. the social media smear campaign under the banner assad used chemical weapons has now started just as we predicted you'll see more of this fake videos over the following days the complain this planned to be on a grand scale of videos purporting to show victims of a gas attack by the syrian military flooded social media on saturday that was off the white house accused the syrian government of preparing to use chemical weapons syrian journalist alibre him says that he's a shouldn't makes little sense to survey the commanding officer on the issued a statement denying any use of chemical weapons saying that there's actually is a well known tactic used by dong terrorist groups according to a statement of the syrian army when these groups feel that they are on the fallback they talk to station chemical attacks to stop them from advancing they are going to
discuss the circumstances surrounding these attacks and it doesn't make a lot of sense for the syrian government when it's winning militarily in achieving actually substantial most regains or more than one from that it would do something that would enable the rebels to benefit from international support which would actually force the army to bring its operations into a complete halt i want washington was asked to back up its obligations that the mascot's was preparing a chemical attack it failed to provide any real evidence as daniel bushell explains though the u.s. doesn't seem to need it when coming to accusing assad russia alice said there's one hundred bad habits and that's how it is and he only does this when he's winning he ruins everything but doing something really stupid for no reason at all. take oh me now they crushing islamic states liberating vul swathes of syria and
belts of the blue comes this. the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime i'm said knows the pro bowl consequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now who could ruin him by giving his enemies 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 both stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind a villain man would go off and america is batman. 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 it does something really dumb for no
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 and if you've been following events in syria recently you know they are getting the united states has attacked and said point it's time for what they say is silly bandz. problem is just the following the prolonged conflict isn't easy western voters don't want another gung ho i mean campaign they learned their lesson all for the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions the only thing left is to wait for asset to give them a cools and since he's a comic book supervillain that's just part of the script. jan oberg who has written extensively on the war in syria says the western media campaign against their side is verging on farcical the mainstream media the large media that are influencing
the western decision making process and just citizens of about is you take the case for instance of the totally black patron there he painted all of our last and now nobody can be as evil as he's been made in the western world it is very important that we are aware that not only good analysis is wrong it's all good in the background these days in international politics. meanwhile washington says the proper ations claims to have seen are similar to ones carried out before a chemical incident in syria is in the province that was back in april last week the un's chemical weapons watchdog excuse me confirmed the victims of that incident were exposed to sarin gas however it did not identify the perpetrator it also turned out the fact finding mission didn't actually visit the site of the alleged attack citing security risks the conclusions are based on interviews with people
claiming to be survivors and post-mortems of alleged victims delivered to a neighboring country o.p.c. the statement didn't specify which country that was and we discussed the findings with russia's representative to the group. there are full length expressions in the city like the team was on the able to pull so all the little so all of these it daunting force of all the we're unable to or will determine where it lands on. the hill tool says the. law teacher all the. side the. source of fuel cost people's casualty with food treated we can't books interpret. these missions there's a mission so just they're serious imperfectly sections to put it
mildly. there is a mission and that is in these reports that. it was impossible to implement the chain not past the point the team. or some place prone to schools and this is very thin but. reach really is a bit of something. you can buy somebody a boarding school and been brought by somebody and they just absolutely nor evidence call it was a deal with. the u.s. president donald trump has taken another swipe at the media posting a mock video of a wrestling match between him and c.n.n. i was with was
with trump has repeatedly accused c.n.n. of broadcasting fake news about him in one tweet he said he was thinking of changing the channels name to fraud news c.n.n. . the fake media tried to stop us from going to the white house when i'm president and they're not i was the fact is the press has destroyed themselves because they went too far. and responded to donald trump's wrestling video accusing him of encouraging violence against reporters the statement went on to say the president should be focusing his attention on running the country rather than indulging in juvenile behavior political analyst shows alltel told us the network is not entirely blameless in his dispute with trump the case of c.n.n. we are talking as regards trump and indeed as against the conservative elements of
the united states of america of a nonstop this information campaign and when it comes to trump spewing fraudulent nonsense about you know what happened in the election and after the election they've severely lost their way which is evidenced i think in the long term trend in their viewership but let's remember this is the network admittedly they later fired kathy griffin for holding up a mock severed head of our president and c.n.n. the same network is complaining about a cartoon i mean give me a break i would say that c.n.n. has a lot better things to do than they than they did for example a couple years ago wasting all the time on the missing malaysian flight and then in the last number of months here going on and on and on about this suppose a russian collusion hacking story which i i hope at this point has been dealt with i mean see it's kind of rich for c.n.n. to call the pot calling the kettle black here. c.n.n.
has been on the defensive throughout the whole week several undercover videos were posted online exposing attitudes at the channel towards russia related stories the more i see. and consequently in. russia the structure of. this is ratings because ratings razor. but honestly. it's just like. it's mostly right now we don't have. john. proof what do you think's going to happen this week. that's going to be nothing really. what you just saw was a c.n.n. producer and one of the political commentators the last one van jones responded to the undercover video he said his words had been taken out of context and that he did not think there was nothing to claims team trump colluded with russia both
videos were released by investigative journalism group project vera tass their founder is already facing a million dollar more suit over undercover videos thing against democratic organizations and activists who asked americans about what they think on their media's coverage of russia where i did stories are you tired of hearing about trump and russia yes actually yes that's all i hear about it it's just getting tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to be the truth has to come out and the truth is that there was interference in the american electorate system but by the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. is they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not me not a my friend i think they would that something. if if there is something secret about something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out in the open and there is something else come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less less i'd like to
hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares i know it could be my next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it will last if the people behind me on the cover video what the russian thing actually refers to we were 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 from first reading it what the way the drug or ugly headline okee strikes again in the president of the united states just to a radio zogby ursule instagram channel so i'm assuming your group as well not just c.n.n. i want to make that clear if you are the mainstream media in america you know you are telling lies you are defending people you are keeping stories you're keeping the public from knowing the truth you're on our list of the week long headache for the channel continued when it did
pretext of navigation freedom the u.s. side once again sent a military vessel into china's territorial waters this constitutes a serious political and military provocation the chinese side is dissatisfied with and opposed to the relevant behavior of the u.s. side of the u.s. guided missile destroyer came within twelve nautical miles of triton island that's part of the disputed island group which china considers to be its own territory this comes at a time of heightened tensions between the two countries and washington recently announced plans to sell arms worth one point four billion dollars to taiwan that move infuriated china but also raised doubts over president trump's efforts to improve relations with beijing jim di editor of veterans today told us the dispute in a south china sea is unlikely to die down. this is part of a sparring campaign that i think is going to go on for quite a while this this dispute over who has sovereignty over the south china sea
is going to be with us for years it really doesn't involve the united states because it's on the other side of the world but the u.s. likes to show the flag but china has major interest here because it's got a billion people a huge energy. appetite which it's spending a lot of its foreign earnings importing so a long range if there is energy found in this area it wants to lay claim to it and of course the u.s. is basically saying we will we will challenge that. and germany has won the fever confederations cup for the first time defeating chile one nil in st petersburg and javi and stan common law that bring you all of auntie's special coverage.
all the beautiful white knights they created and secularly fantastic even for germany the world champions are now going around the top seventy confederations cup winners with a well known victory over chile alongside me stan collymore you called this you said germany going to win it maybe not in the fashion you predicted no i think that's a huge congratulations us to go to the truly national team as well it was all of nothing tonight i put all of their effort the bodies on the line my start to extremely well huge congratulations to them and i'm sure that they wouldn't want to lose the game in the middle of the aidid but when you send so many players forward so often there's always the possibility of that and you can get hurt and that's exactly how i said it wasn't a mano that we expected germany to win in that they were expected to boss the game that chile would defend it was the other way around chile dominating possession
throughout germany snatch the chance to talk us through this is shocking moment for the defender the central defender for chile the he was the man you just see the ideas on the edge of his own books and you just don't want him in possession the ball and you have to keep the ball moving in particular when you've got you know usually home reply use chasing around you to look to win the ball that's exactly what jeremy did you know neil was inside the stadium watching the game and he caught up with some of the players just afterwards so all quiet at the same petersburg arena this is where the competition began and this is where it ended they say football is a simple game for ninety minutes twenty two men run around the field after a ball at the end of it the germans when it was the germans who came out on top to make history because after all the world cups they had won after all the european championships they want they'd never got their hands on the confederations. well i spoke to some of their players after the match including embrace shown a liverpool man who gave his thoughts not only on the game but also on his at

now over to the u.k. where the minority conservative government finally signed a deal with northern ireland is the necrotic united party to shore up its power. price though with prime minister to resign my agreeing to provide an extra billion pounds for the province over the next two years. we have reached an agreement with the conservative party on support for a government in parliament this agreement will operate to deliver a stable government in the united kingdom's national interest at this time. of the agreement sees the prime minister backtrack on a number of key election pledges including reforms the pensions and benefits. has been taking a closer look. i was right there was a no nonsense oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 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 bracks it something may has accepted as a possibility on top of that the d u p have been criticised for their policies on same sex marriage and abortion as well as previous links with violent paramilitary groups in northern ireland not a perfect ally but attendee u.p.a. 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 twenty years that's in addition to the previously announced five hundred million and funds to northern ireland and who is footing the bill you may ask as always the taxpayer taxpayers resent politicians cooking 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 they do you p.r. delighted if you think the same applies to scotland and wales think again this is the worst kind of pork barrel politics which has 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 and party fund it. opposition leader jeremy corbyn claimed the deal was not in the national interest but rather in may's own interests and he voiced concern about where the money was coming from and why no other parts of the u.k. are receiving extra funding we asked the radio host and a politics professor for their views. managed to get this group be a little coalition together but the do you pretty hotel to see she's still a minority government i think she's going to have real problems lasting i certainly think they'll be an election by toba i think she'll find it very very difficult to
hold this government together because don't forget she's got simply was the seizure thing you see she's also got a. divided party on the conservative party to still be massively divided over the major issue at the moment which is breaks it out even more so it might make her 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 you 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 were very unhappy about these changes and 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 a manageable level. he and his ready peace negotiator is on worlds apart talk about
his country's role in the middle east i'll be with you again next hour. because there's a survival guide book stay single malt to start at least. those who don't get it back. public no good says a repatriation scheme will get the rest to seventy. philip a separate kaiser for. basile in the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live there or is it. crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life before this on the same national get out of all such a traditional story some not as i am sometime soon as we finally

welcome to well to part for much of the syrian war the iranian arab consensus has played handsomely into israel's hands and that is until the friends of syria group imploded from within with turkey and qatar 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 people to discuss that i'm now joined by golan chair one of israel's senior peace negotiators mr share 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 to conflict this to.
