6:04 am
within syria it's a message to deter any further such action and it's also making the most of an opportunity to do as much damage to rein in forces as possible israel's government has long warned of a growing threat from iranian bases and missiles inside syria it seems to have decided to act sooner rather than later and. we have of course hit all the infrastructure not all but almost all of the iranian infrastructure in syria they must remember the saying if it rains here it will pour over there and i hope that we finish this chapter and that everyone got the message. syrian state media said syrian air defenses it inserted most of the incoming rockets over the capital damascus but also confirmed that a radar station and a weapons storage site was struck. with iranian state television said syria had given a quote crushing response to. israeli attacks the strikes were carried out hours

iranian revolution and even until recently israel attacked syria several times bombed them bombed military bases to avoid direct syria chose self-preservation even iraq in the saddam era israel hit the atomic power plants whenever the zionists wanted they would break the sonic wall and attack the south of lebanon and syria iraq and other countries so far they haven't seen any response but recently they saw the f. sixteen shut down syria stood firm despite being weakened by seven years of civil war so because of that they have been considerably frustrated they are accustomed to being invaded and they never receive response be sure that if confrontation occurs surely the country who would be damaged the most is the zionist regime jamali added that he hoped the actions taken by israel by launching missiles at syria would eventually result in the liberation of the golan heights very strong words coming from iran's parliament and no matter what iran senior leaders say in coming days two things are certain that this represents

6:25 am
bailout could lead to another crisis many blame the i.m.f. source territory measures from a financial collapse in the early two thousand but left millions in poverty. about their workers they will not stop nor the storm we workers they're not going to like congress to accept the interference of the international monetary fund the increase of tariffs or labor reform we are going to fight until the end so that those infamous resolutions of the macro government to turn back on their workers have a memory we know that. lead us to hell and we will not allow it. to stay with us story. is the co-director of the center for economic and policy research in washington he says argentina's government could have avoided going to the i.m.f. . they're not facing the kind of situation even that they were facing in that depression from one nine hundred ninety eight to two thousand and one which of course the i.m.f. is is quite
6:26 am
a bit of fault for our times are very much worried about going back to the i.m.f. you know poverty rose during those few years from eighteen percent to forty two percent of the population and that was a country that was you know not long before that one of the richest richest in south america i think perhaps they think that this will restore credibility with the markets. that's kind of the way they look at these things and i think also it's way and this is typical in many cases of the i.m.f. where the government wants to take measures that are going to be deeply unpopular they're going to cut spending most likely could possibly push the economy into recession and they use the i.m.f. as cover things in the i.m.f. is making us do that we have to you know we have an agreement and so i think those would be the reasons why they would do that you know all these programs and i am
6:27 am
left typically they reduce the deficit by cutting spending and pushing the economy towards recession because then people have less money to spend the import less and that's not the best way to do it of course for most people but it could be the way that some of the government investors and people they care about look at it the u.k. government has apologized to a former libyan dissidents and his wife for the role that spies played in sending them to libya to be tortured in two thousand and four abdulhakim bell and his wife were abducted with the help of british agents and handed over to moammar gadhafi security forces is lawrence lee. if revenge is a dish best served cold then the fourteen years it took abdelhakim bell and his wife atom of blood shot to get their apology will have been worth it we come now to

intelligence. it took a full six years for the u.k. authorities to accept his arguments he had asked for nothing except an apology. if the woman who did. today the british government has acknowledged and apologized for the suffering of my wife and myself years ago i thank them for this brave step the british government has learned a lesson from this and i hope other governments around the world will learn it as well. and outside the u.k. parliament fastener held up the letter from the british prime minister offering the total apology for what they've done. the u.k. lost its way when it got mixed up in the rendition of an innocent pregnant woman and to get off a dissident but today i think it stood on the right side of history by recognizing its mistakes and by apologizing. and so where does this leave the reputation of m i six it's worth bearing in mind that spies do what their political masters tell them
