third a suicide bomber managed to blow himself up. on the white house has warned syria's president he will pay a heavy price if he goes through with a chemical attack which the u.s. says he's preparing however no evidence was provided to support the allegations so watch season without investigates. 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 as sad 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 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 i ask how does something really dumb 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 hitting the united states has attacked assad five times what they see. these self-defense problem is 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 you know it's just a part of the script meanwhile moscow has slammed washington's ultimatum to syria
calling it a profit cation which looks like a threshold for a full blown us military intervention one is in its name 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 you know both military and information know it start getting you not only syria but russia as well scott 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 to make provocations and shift the blame onto the syrian government. meanwhile the u.s. state department was grilled over the lack of evidence to support the claim the motto was rejected it made statements in teligent. i think just
because you didn't see share with us about this potential preparation for these chemical weapons is 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 what you say it's evidence or proof of intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you not to face of america is looking for some sort of provocation in syria and is actually putting pretext 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 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 a case of two 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 words 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 internationally in the meanwhile the united states u.n. ambassador claim the lack of any recent a chemical incidents in syria is simply down to washington's threats 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 to 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 kooky dance a big show in noise to make them look tough ineffective maybe the advance of mr
trump's meeting with mr putin at the g. twenty washington says the preparations it claims to have seen a similar to the ones carried out before a chemical incident in syria's lead province back in april but it was a this week for example the un's chemical weapons watchdog confirmed the victims of that incident were exposed to sarin gas however it did not identify any perpetrator it also turned out that the entire fact finding mission didn't even visit the site of the alleged the time to investigate it all citing security risks as a territory is under the control of opposition groups that means the conclusions of the report emotionally based on either interviews of people claiming to be survivors or post-mortems of alleged victims delivered to a neighboring country which the o.p.c. w. refuses to specify we discuss the findings of the report with russia's representative to the group. there are
expressions in the suit like the team was on the able to pull the team will all of these. daunting calls of all the we're unable to determine where. the feel will all. teach all the. e-book side the. fuel bills. to treat we can't books interprets. these missions is the mission so just the serious improved sections two mile. davies or mission and these are people that. it was impossible to implement
the chain not past the point the key. for samples from the schools and these is the only in the far. reaches of something's. going to work somebody more. when somebody. just absolutely no evidence cole it will deal with and another development from syria israel says it at 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 actually a syrian territory occupied by israel since the one nine hundred sixty s. and this follows five almost identical incidents in the area throughout the past week israeli prime minister previously said his country would not tolerate any spillover from the syrian conflict and will respond to all incoming fire we spoke to investigative journalist. stunning he believes israel is actually and quite
deliberately escalating the situation. as the syrian army advances and slowly but surely it is crushing the the armed opposition that terrorists would in 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 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 a t.v. channel video cameras have been giving c.n.n. a fair few headaches this week as how for a string of embarrassments over the network's coverage of russia in one video it senior political commentator revealed his true attitude towards russia. what do you
think's going to happen this week with all russia. was going to feed nothing really . and more revealing videos were released this week by the investigative journalist group project various house with details here's a correspondent on 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 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 leak from project there a thompson jon bon a field an important producer for c.n.n. says the russia story is even 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 but we also the people behind the video what the russia thing refers to. we put the entire video out there i mean people can judge for themselves sometimes you happen earthlings in the conversation but that's certainly my interpretation and i think that's the way the mainstream media even for reading it the way the drug or as the headline of heat strikes again in the president of the united states just put out two of our videos on his personal instagram channel so i'm assuming he agrees as well not just c.n.n. i want to make this very clear if you are the mainstream media in america end you are telling lies you are defending people your gate keeping stories you're keeping the public from knowing the truth you're on our list the week long headache for the
come on northern ireland's d.e.p.t. agreeing to support highly criticized policies of theresa may but at a run some price those details off to the break. one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with. attribution who did it where did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks i mean you've mentioned one across the recent run somewhere it's still unclear where that originated 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.
good to have you with us at the start of the week so the u.k.'s minority conservative government finally signed a deal with northern ireland's democratic unionist party to shore up its power but the deal suddenly came at a price prime minister theresa may having to stump up a billion 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. to deliver a stable government in the united kingdom's national interest at this time the agreement will see the prime minister back track on a number of key election pledges including reforms to pensions and benefits the do you pay has agreed to support the tories on all matters of confidence including talks and national security issues our correspondent. takes a closer look. i know i know you said he there was. no nonsense oh no. 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 previously inks with violent paramilitary
groups in northern ireland not a perfect ally but attendee 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 in funds to northern ireland and who is footing the bill you may ask as always the taxpayer thanks paris 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 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 once they see a party funded opposition labor leader jeremy coleman claimed the deal was not in the national interest but rather in may interest and he voiced concern about where the money for the agreement was coming from and the fact that there was no investment for the rest of the country we discussed all of this with various analysts. g.'s it managed to get this group b. 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 all this government together bush doesn't get she's got simply with the secret police she's also got a fairly. divided party on the conservative party is still massively divided over the major issue at the moment which is brics it and the e.u.
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 pray they have a working majority of thirteen of course and only 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 a manageable level. thousands voice their anger with the current government in central london just yesterday protesters demanded teresa mayes resignation holding pockets reading tories out and not one day more demonstrators walked for around three kilometers among the focus of complaints will austerity and privatisation
along with demands for better education housing and living standards we spoke to some of the activists. his story numbers of people here today is really quite unprecedented and you know i think i just show use the level is just such people have to discover these been a very long standing growing resentment especially i think you know the young the millennium every generation our people are there realising the future if it is bleak unless they get out and do something about it this is if they really have. image overseas certainly did say you pay that coalition come on some issues but in parliament so i think the the idea of this is the bridges all together but also to unite around some policy measures so we can push for an argument where the french today we could see the government now i think myself in a very very dangerous position for. a migrant borehole back is developing on the italian french border where controls have been tightened with drones on guard dogs
deployed the following video captured in a makeshift camp biology's video agency ruptly shows the heavy price people are paying to traffickers to continue their journey north. even. at least become the main entry point for refugees crossing the mediterranean mostly via libya and this week italy threatened to start turning away migrant rescue ships arriving on its southern shores and warn that you you the situation has become unsustainable tensions have been spiking with a series of. protests sweeping the country. this is r.t. international so the stage is set for the final of the free for confederations cup
hosted by russia. neil harvey and former england player stan collymore bringing you special coverage of the tournament. the final germany against chile on paper they look pretty well balanced who do you think has the upper hand coin credible i can't remember a big tournament where the champions league or world cup or confederation is called having such a huge experience go on three goals for germany. two goals for germany lost in long two goals for germany. three of the corners in this tournament have thirteen caps thirteen appearances for their country between them converse sanchez who plays for austin and england has got one hundred fourteen appearances for chile so it's a huge gap in experience and it's going to be fascinating. let's go to the stadium
big stadium which is where the final will be played our correspondent part just outside just before when we were looking at all the numbers of fans who bought tickets signed for russians watching the tournament chile and germany were among the fans who bought the tickets so lots of them there are they've been anticipating good final pitch for a moment a long two trips over a month have been saying so much as anybody other than but their beautiful eyelids that maybe man woman and child racism hooliganism where receipt nobody has reported anything i think to the delight of fee for particular russia as well but johnny infantino was full of praise we were hearing about violence about incidents. of. racism nothing we had no incidents everything run smoothly everything run perfectly good hitting about the infrastructure. how will it work infrastructures are absolutely beautiful beautiful football
stadiums transport works is something that does not happen in many other counts. 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 for hooliganism 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 to try and . study after study from all the force which has been absolutely fantastic. i would say that you know it's not like people are looking for problems in the but you know hearing and he said. absolutely. i. see. my. home studio i like you
still and. this. is. probably. joined by peter chief correspondent for gold dot com peter great to have you in the studio now first of all just explain to us what are you doing here in russia well obviously it's the big tournament next year the world cup and a lot of our team we haven't been to russia before for work to visit so they've set me on almost an exploratory mission here it's going to be a proper world cup next year i know a lot of people in the u.k. and ireland in the united states might have certain fears or preconceptions about what it's going to be like on the ground here next year. you know this sort of you know should really anybody's fears about coming here i found great stadiums for a straight stadiums great infrastructure great help from the volunteers free transport between the cities and around the cities for all the found and i just find it the people you know the conduit for your people that are warm there and
like i said the country will for you if we get a bit of weather for the world cup next year that's all we want i think that's the main thing obviously. neil will both be back throughout the day here in our international with the build up to the final to join us if you. hardwell here coming up next on this network now more hard news in all for now it's time for the marines i bow the president of the philippines comes clean over a large scale war on drugs while there are various death squads operating on his borders all the documentary is next. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned
on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now that the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never
been done before. bosler 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 in them a little bit before this on the celestial get out of that it was such a traditional story some nas comes by him sometimes to see them as we've done is by no means a school my days and i'm on my feet while the cities try desperately not to collapse all powerful corporations collect the profit of vision totally cool with who put the couple who probably global on the dole coffee cup with dolly economy in the bushes up the on sobs knock up the suppose it's only a. good. fun.
