they show it on t.v. you go from one country to another like a rolling stone you have kids and nothing to feed them with and no job. in september the unemployment rate within the eurozone hit a record high of eleven point six percent in the seventeen countries united by a common currency for more than eighteen million people are now out of work that's an increase of around five thousand every day since august during the years of growth you're of was in desperate need of a cheap labor force and therefore provided immigrants from all over the globe with work but with the worst economic crisis since the second world war now in the gulf in the continent not only is the able to provide jobs for outsiders it cannot even create works for locals turning the tables and sending many of those in a search for a better life abroad or to know we for example a non eurozone and only used state two factors some analysts say that have averted this can even country from disaster. in our region krone is one of the safest
currencies in europe many people here in germany and in other european countries believe that our monetary system is being pressed up against the wall and this makes us weak. when the economic crisis fully engulfed greece last year brussels was on alert then a bailout treaty brought hope and relief apparently for mature spain and portugal joined the club and someone will still be others to come let's raise switzerland and norway and not say you members they're doing better than any other european country as we do denmark in the czech republic. countries and we never hear things about the whole system when it's steals all the major powers from state political economic diplomatic and military and give it to brussels and washington is doomed with german chancellor angela merkel saying at least five more years will be needed to recover it's clear. countries like no we will not have
a deficit in labor force at least some more decades to refashion our teeth from you know we germany and france. they will see for our coverage of the e.u. mega strike as workers unite against austerity will bring you aussies south us from the trade. when we go now france has become the first western country to recognize the new syrian rebel coalition as these soldiers have a voice of the syrian people the u.s. and other european nations stop short of doing so saying the foreign based group should first show it's able to represent syrians inside the country paris also said it would look at arming the rebels policy and now reports. the french president francois hollande said that the syrian opposition coalition would act as a temporary government in the future and he said that it would be the tosca of the
syrian opposition to now establish a transitional government and earlier in the week six gulf states recognize the opposition coalition which we could tolerate foreign minister saying that this recognition obstacles to the security of weapons to the syrian opposition it is important to make a distinct parallel with what we've seeing back on the tenth of march two thousand and eleven we saw the same scenario unfolding when france was the first country to recognize the transitional national council which was essentially the opposition fighters in libya and this is what we witnessing this parallel situation now in syria these are what happened in libya and following that french recognition back in libya this set the pavement for international recognition and ultimately lead to foreign forces intervening in that country the arab league which is arguably the most important body in the arab world has given a hesitant welcome to this opposition coalition it has however stopped short of recognizing it as the legitimate voice of the syrian people and then you have
members of the arab league such as iraq and lebanon that have not fully given their support to opposition fighters in their attempt to topple the syrian president bashar assad they are a number of questions and concerns still outstanding not least among them the whole question of the supply of weapons the question of foreign intervention and also the question of who makes up this opposition coalition it has for days if not weeks now been fractured by internal bickering it is essentially a patchwork of organizations and people that have very different political and religious backgrounds and affiliations so many people are asking well if in fact it is effective and how effective its connections and its ties are with the syrian opposition that is active inside syria. process for endorsement of the syrian opposition unity blog comes amid fears that there is a growing number of extremists fighting on the side of the rebels and in fact al masri from the free syrian army the military branch of the opposition told us their
commanders are not always in total control of. the free syrian army is not a regular army but the soldiers of the revolution some troops claim to be part of the efficacy but at the same time do not follow orders killings take place but as we are in a revolution we cannot control such events certainly there are some extremists some gangs and some thieves who want to take advantage of the. still ahead for you this hour how private passions at the pentagon have caused a very public humiliation a look at what separated he was only trying to go from day to the trend says commander in afghanistan has been trying to the scandal that brought his predecessor. and let's now go to our top stories and for more on this mega strike and number of the european countries you can now go live to his in madrid for starters a strike has been dubbed historic with millions of europeans europeans united in coordinated protest against austerity so what can we expect today. with people
ready out of the streets it was a tiny taste like we're here at the play but it's one of the bank train stations as you get the budget of most cities that much less why is that because the thing that people hate dealing with the bus we were just got one of the bus depots and they're all hopes up not going anywhere today because it's not just saying it's going to go look it yesterday it's raised many many other countries that going to be standing still it's actually at least a step back that they can go in general strike. probably get the money that it is that is no it was thirty the people standing out today again very very big. happening here that we see that they get here and they
know that putting it up more than twenty five of them looks or very important to get what we wanted to the day looks like record highs it is the other point is that what that actually translates in reality is that people look close to get out to put struggling so they can sleep and not feel that it's just hard to sleep well. that's a tax hike to add to that outfit that was so i mean there really is a very strong feeling of course here at the time we've seen this protest across the board is that everyone feeling together in the spirit be it mega strike is basically saying that it's easier than the proselyte budgetary meeting thankee has does it just take her week time will be processed meat cause that any change in the policy is pretty hard to say i think the government may make very very addicted to this part of the narrative that many people take
a defeat down they take the cuts he did not tell people to get out of their message at this in this even further in than think interestingly in the last week the bank takes that song lightly with when it comes to addiction you know really because it is a shame that it can be very very public and all those tragically add numbers to size if the food being evicted the fact that. the most serious case that it likely will be going it may take it over a year if needed it publicly but in many ways people in the teeth of that government made a bit of a deal with the devil they got the bailout with him but they can't take these very very big cuts and that's really how big the technical part of that but i mean look very closely to see it again take it day is the time the easy. way to approach it is this week that really nothing hold it down on the strike take it like
a look here but. also you saw first reporting there from madrid sorry many thanks indeed. decorated on the journal's fulling from grace in connection with the racist candles is becoming an alarming trend in washington the correll the current commander in afghanistan is now in jeopardy also he became. in time gold in the case that led to the resignation of cia chief david petraeus says he had to quit after revelations i went affair with his biographer sad they emerged as a result of a plot launched after complaints by a florida socialite who received many e-mails she said amounted to harassment non-genuine allen who succeeded to trash in afghanistan is under investigation over inappropriate communication with the very woman who started it all feeling is growing that as natural to the case and people passionate moments like this i think we're getting a glimpse of life at the top in the army and marines as far as general officers are
concerned four star generals in particular these are people that frankly think they are immune from accountability but i'm not sure that the sexual dimension is though interesting or are at the root of the problem but i think there is concern about national security and i think we'll discover over the next couple of weeks that betrays his departure has much more to do with that than an affair the f.b.i. doesn't normally investigate. extramarital affairs unless a foreign agent is involved think we're seeing that the afghan war like the entire experience of the last ten years is really an artificial construct these generals have cultivated an image of themselves that is an accurate they've tried to create the illusion that we are fighting a great enemy in reality we don't face armies air forces or air defenses we're not fighting the vase an s.s. in the yard in this we're not facing hundreds of thousands of chinese troops on the
korean peninsula this is not strictly speaking a real war in that sense. and more opinion and speculation what's behind this high profile scandal calls for you so you had better have you also say i want to make all the timing and here's how opinion is divided at the moment just over a third say the damning information came out to prevent general betray us from testifying about that time the u.s. consulate in benghazi a little over a quarter of believe it's part of a bigger part of the whole leadership in a number of top jobs nineteen percent say the timing is linked to the u.s. presidential vote with a cover up taking place to ensure obama's re-election and the same numbers seen no foul play say it's purely betrays his mistakes that led to his downfall so let us know what you say on the dot com home page. all right hold back with more international news in just a few minutes. looking

a dog kennel in the village kids from the local open age came around to take care of the dogs and one day they state their life might seem extreme to some the boys wake up at six to feed to the dogs before school in the evening they spend up to three hours training their full legged friends but smother her schedule also encourages her kids to become dab hands on the computer and internet the boys regularly updated their website and they're in touch with the busy maga twenty four seven on the phone itself. but children are the most important thing my only interests not play any rule any more and regardless of whether parsky has huskies window race or not she hopes the competition will take place in the village next year. but called these dogs and the children it really is not the winning but actually just the taking part that counts.

and china now from currency and trade to military dominance and asia pacific who is the main cause of the growing mutually retention and beijing a washington. well i didn't really have to say watching him because what he did is part of the worst part of the declining west with the rising east and claiming powers or powers that are receding always. from over things in order to somehow stabilize or maybe cater or dance there are seeking a position where they it's more than that it's more that we're moving into a bipolar period of us showing to. the world will be really on that that relationship just as for so many years through the war it was a vital relationship in the world the room the world. and the united states for the
unlike the soviet union or relationship this is not ideological it would be tollway of wall to wall economics. and with the european economy crisis now the use looking east was but how big is china willing to lend a helping hand and what would it get in return. i don't think it's going to. be here in the western way of stating that it will make a deal. china is going. to be very very helpful here. have to have trade offs they are not going to do it is some charitable move but there are opportunities to make the story mary arrangements the whole strength of the west for the most four. years through. john when you were in charge of making the benefit of the party no i was not going
