4:01 pm
syrian airspace on her is about to take quote necessary action against its southern neighbor while damascus says it acted within the bounds of international law if an ocean reports. turkish president has tried to justify the potential crossing of the syrian border by turkish fighter jets by saying that it's a routine for war planes flying as a such a high speed to cross front here from time to time for short distances since the beginning syrian military officials have been saying that the plane deeds and to the syrian air space and did violate didn't break the border regulations and they had no choice but to act according to international law and equal in the turkish president they've also been stressing that they did the plane has been flying at a high speed but also at a very low altitude and this is the case they say when the plane tries to abort a defense system the turkish side is also not reporting the rescue and search
4:02 pm
operation is now in to go in in the area in cooperation with the syrian side and of course the investigation continues but took each president has been equal in turkish prime minister who sat before that turkey's ready to take all necessary measures designed simply while the details emerge this news has come a time of the grease to volunteer in syria and of course the incident with need to country member five to jet short here in syria could provoke even further escalation and many analysts have been saying that nato could get involved turkey has been involved in this crisis in syria they've been many reports about the rebels stationed in turkey the rebels training in turkey and what phones and ammunition is being smuggled through the turkish syrian border and just recently we've been hearing about cia offices based in the southern part of the country not far from the syrian border. coordinating
4:03 pm
a weapons delivery to the rebels inside syria so all that is is very dangerous to the questions us remains open how far turkey is ready to go to topple the regime and president bashar al assad someone been they've. criticizing and they've been condemning for like a crackdown against his people for for a long time now thank. some perspective on this from blogger and. joining us live from dubai so what's been the reaction a you've been seeing among syrians to this incident with the turkish jet well you know for the last fifteen months we have see turkey acting against syria. in very very. aggressive way of funding terrorists within the turkish border one time only. truly and looking and this young people have. been quite
4:04 pm
frustrated not to know i was not actually up to against turkey or. these countries are. they are. doing actions that they. create what this is like a declaration of war what you have is a terrorist in the border and being armed and then sending them over the border to kill people is a declaration you want to assume things are very very close to it but i don't i don't understand how this could be a declaration of war i mean perhaps what are some analysts are saying that this is a recognizance flight that simply crossed the border when it got too close well you know this is what turkey is saying now because they're trying to dump its solution i feel that they don't want to get into a war so they have been downplaying it but the sooner people are quite happy to see
4:05 pm
that syria has the fund. to sit its ground there enquired hard mistaken when you say the syrian people you're talking about those who support the regime. well you know not necessarily because i for one. support the government along with i am definitely against these formally and cities trying to war in my country so i'm definitely. in favor of the scenes of violence eating and kids and there's no incidents inside inside syria that are just like me it's not a case of being poor it gives the government it's a case of defending syria your whole night it is what is clearly a. little g.c.c. countries turkey and israel so when you say the syrians like you how do you classify yourself if you say you are not for the regime or do you side yourself
4:06 pm
with the opposition or what do you want to see happen in syria well what we refer to ourselves. to a position we firmly want to see peace still in our country. if only some parents. only we have been is poor reforms to be allowed to case peacefully without. countries like the us qatar saudi arabia are sending money to these insurgents and basically foreign mercenaries and such as the libyans and some get used to create destruction and chaos i can't so what do you think about the anon plan well then i think it's basically just. the un with a body that's too tall but you must. it's totally look mutual funds
4:07 pm
just means how it's such a good buy this is the first plan that has everyone on board with all the members of the security council are saying that they are backing in the end on play. well you know these are just games and that they did announce well is a way to get them rebels entrenched and we are it's not. what you see you doing to get both sides to lay down their arms and move forward with a negotiated process that can bring the country through a transition i don't feel that many of the members inside. who to. feel this way perhaps undo what some. members such as syria and its armed guards feel that this is the ability willing to do that not book but and none for themselves. many other members of the security council don't see that like this
4:08 pm
really see it as a way to stop only the student government from. and the military from stopping fighting the insurgents they want only just to stop it don't want the rebels just look at even the rebels did not repeat the client insults me but it's partially large so some factions that need to do it and others didn't and then the syrian government wasn't expected to and not. so i just feel that because of these numbers insecure to plant. is going to fear because they are undermining so enough we used to just listening in if you must. they are using the plan differently which is not what it's designed to do you speak syria all right we have to leave it there syrian activists some broader meaning fact america if we're keeping
4:09 pm
a close eye on reactions in feet are now in syria and you can get up to date by logging on to our facebook page and twitter feeds where we have the latest. tens of thousands of egyptians filled protests against the military which is accused of staging a brutal power results the presidential runoff will be announced on sunday four days later than expected meanwhile the standoff between ruling generals and the muslim brotherhood continues many fear the military could use the.
4:10 pm
as you can hear tensions are soloing here in town his way away tens of thousands of people have turned out to demonstrate on saturday night they're chanting for the army to step down and indeed as they have been chanting for the past few days they calling for the muslim brotherhood candidate dr mohamed morsi to be named egypt's makes president they're also chanting things like we are strong and that we are preparing for war finds an ominous threat that comes as the electoral commission says that it will and mounds the official results of last weekend's presidential polls on sunday three pm local time but there is confusion over this because we're hearing from other electoral commission officials that it has not yet been determined when these results in fact will be announced now as you can hear this growing anger in taffy's square and this is because many of the people here who are muslim brotherhood supporters are cautious of the fact that they think the little commission is delaying and non-singing as olds because the army is trying to
4:11 pm
organize that its candidate after much traffic the main to egypt's makes president and there are growing concerns that if indeed shafiq is announced they will be violence here in egypt the military is worried about those they have warned of potential violence they have warned political leaders on both sides to put a lid on growing on waste but they've also said that despite these protests despite the growing anger they're not going to back down from we sent a constitutional and judicial changes that they made earlier i spoke with author and journalist hugh miles also in cairo he says the announcement of election results won't quell tensions and even stir them further. egypt is a very divided society and that is not going to be a satisfactory outcome whatever whoever is named president the other side is going to be led by the clad victory. very unstable moment sorry cold transition. a number of. dramatic possibilities.
4:12 pm
are out that that could be a huge response toppers glad i could be a revelation again could be a revolution spreading to the military which is the worst case scenario for the military rulers in this country the ministry of minister and to the power of the president last week. whoever the president is going to be the weakest president in egypt history. stay with us here on r.t. still to come a big game for a big drinking with england advancing in the european championships the team is out for the cup but the fans are out for a pint health experts though warn that a first for laurie is becoming a dangerous excuse plus. we need more money or less money or. yes because we have all this stuff as the financial crisis takes its toll on people across the globe the resident asked people in new york how fat a paycheck they need it and if more money to them happy.
4:13 pm
but first julian assange and his fate still in limbo as ecuador ways whether or not to grant him political asylum in american countries recalled its ambassador to britain for a consultation if we can lease editors request is denied he'll likely be arrested by british police the moment he steps out from the ecuadorian embassy where he's been holed up since tuesday or tears elena million churches in ecuador is capital quito and has been looking into his asylum checksums all on the sunshine has been claiming that he's case was politically motivated denying sex crime allegations which he's wanted for questioning in sweden and it's exactly those claims of political nature of the case that are being tara we looked into hearing that whether or are there still no sign of the season is on the way now president rafael correa says ecuadorian authorities are assessing if there is a real threat to a songes life the latin american leader has stressed that ecuador rejected the penalty so if he finds there's strong grounds to his fears of being ultimately
4:14 pm
extradited to the united states he might decide the whistleblower needs protection he would. have to see if there's any death threats against julian assange will have to analyze his reasons for requesting asylum if he's had due process. ecuador is a country that rejects persecution for ideological motives. lost his extradition appeal to the u.k. supreme court even he said if there is ultimately. handing over to sweden his likely to be detained immediately that's what assad said himself in his first public comments since he took refugee in the ecuadorian embassy on tuesday after having spent eighteen months under house arrest without charge weekly excited to add it is not looming their solution to sweden that worries him the most but his possible removal to the united states where he claims he is the subject of grand jury proceedings he also said that the u.k. and sweden deliberately slowed down his case to allow the u.s. time to drop charges against him for leaking hundreds of thousands of secret u.s.
4:15 pm
documents while ecuador might hoop to be seen as a defender of these are the end ideas by accepting the world's number one whistleblower as a political refugee it could be made to suffer for its actions for example it's been suggested that ecuador is three we do united states and consequently thousands of jobs my suffer immensely in the latin american countries shelters are signs obviously there's a lot more to this than meets the eye we have to wait and see how these seemingly never ending saga plays out swedish writer ascaris ward says it's not a sergeant's fear of prosecution by stockholm that push him to take the dramatic step of seeking political asylum. in this week's issue is that he's afraid of getting them convicted for sex crimes i think that's much too simplistic even if he would be convicted in sweden and he would be immediately released because he has been serving so much time in england so basically off he comes here might be
4:16 pm
a couple of weeks in imprisonment and then prosecution maybe but the after that he would be released and then what happens then well sweden has a record of being very subservient to to the u.s. when they want peace or they want crackdowns and certain things in sweden and so on so that is the reason for him being scared of getting to sweden. course we always welcome your opinion on the stories we cover today on our website we're asking what you think the future holds for a songe here's where they've used at the moment the majority more than a third think assad will safely get to ecuador and right away he leaks from there less than a third think the whistleblower will spend the rest of his life on the run a little less a quarter reckon assad will be handed over to the u.s. and eventually sent to guantanamo ten percent say he'll spend years in the ecuadorian embassy in london while on to r.t. dot com and have your say. from the pitch to the pub excitement over the euro two
4:17 pm
thousand and twelve games are reaching its peak and so is the drinking this weekend sees engelen play its second round match and with the country's bar is said to be packed emergency services are taking all the necessary precautions sarky sorry for a report from london. i. eat sleep. and the days that tickets they'll be in a better place to catch the game than down the local pub watching football in the pub can be absolutely fantastic it's a great big communal shared experience and i've saved many great games in big hundreds of people and there's not been an ounce of trouble just a fantastic atmosphere and if you can't be there a lot of people feel it's the kind of the next best thing certain things like the knights we were always at danger it could turn ugly but when it's right is a wonderful why to watch football coming up the game is part of english drinking culture and thousands of books in london's bars and pubs whenever
4:18 pm
a match is on. the ballgame or no we're always a responsible drink as you probably think for us if you're so into the game it's like you have to physically. but the stats say something very different is a big problem for us and over all we've lost over five six years we've seen a massive increase in alcohol calls and we're now talking with around sixty thousand incidents every year the london ambulance service operates these. very drunk on the regular service the alcohol recovery center normally dispatched on a friday and saturday night extra services are now being provided in binge drink person big football games complete especially busy. for the euros. every home. and foul behavior from drunken english football fans can be more than a little. we have. a queer feeling
4:19 pm
of. every shift before we go. because what happens is most people in the trunk will. go to closure for code that by providing this service that more calls to the taxpayer is the british government scoring a goal by catering for the problem rather than tackling it head on and england's better than expected performance has meant more people out drinking and being a weekend time to get drunk because it's the late sixty's called. sport and alcohol and you put them together generally speaking you'll find it doesn't matter whether your team's winning or losing in general people will use that as an excuse to drink and so our advice is to keep an eye on how much you're drinking tournament and not just but actually let's remember that the tournament lasts for three wakes if
4:20 pm
you're drinking a lot each guy name actually i've got three week period to live in might have taken a bit of a battering with p.z. fans letting the side down by being such a burden to the health service many feel it's high time english football support is save it up so there are. plenty more news for you on our website r t v dot com including this might there be such a thing as an honest computer hacking the dutch political party trying to legalize the online attacks just so long as you warn your targets before you strike us. there's no place like home and some people are willing to go extraordinary lengths to get there one woman decided to lie about being a murderer just to score off where you ride from the cops all the details on r t does.
4:21 pm

4:23 pm
a cancer ridden economic corpse from which a new economy must be born. well no matter the state of the economy in the country for you which your watching us it seems like most of us for most of us the money we make is never quite enough this week the resident takes to the streets of the big apple a place often associated with big money to find out what kind of salary would make people there happy. how much of an annual salary would make you feel think that's this week let's talk about that thirty five mm hm. a euro per year that would be enough for you i think it would be good seventy five thousand here on a grand hundred grand it's forty thousand dollars some preserve the fun really serves five with forty thousand dollars around a bit
4:24 pm
a hundred fifty thousand per couple or so that would make you feel like that's all i would say probably. two hundred thousand dollars that's a lot yeah but this is why do people want so much money can it in the united states we think about its consumption but everyone knows that the things that you own own you and that the simple life can make you happy why does no one subscribe to that it's just philosophical it's what we grew up with it's what we were trained with it's what we believe do you think the answer varies from country to country in terms of success on sure does so what do you think on the scale americans fit and. do we need more money or less money more. yet because we have all the stuff especially in america the money is everything america is the money we like to live in because we. live well you know schoolteachers are definitely are in more
4:25 pm
banks why do you think that schoolteachers earn so much less than people who don't necessarily add as much value as you do i think it's because we're just good natured and we are caring and we don't we're not in it for the money sound yeah so those kinds of jobs are going to get paid less because you're not greedy as much money as i need. to live healthy and with my family in good shape and and just to be lucky i think that's that's all i don't need that much money no more than that no more than that do you think if you made more than matt you'd be happier that's though i think you spend what you make so no matter what. just go spend what you make yes so if you make eighty thousand dollars you're going to spend more i'm going to spend more and i'm getting a bigger house and a bigger boat and everything else to go with it we don't need that stuff. yes i do cut back the bottom line is your annual salary might increase but that doesn't mean
