there on and bashar al assad stopped calling each other france turkey has played a very active and some would say and very distractive role in the syrian affairs turkish territory is being actively used to smuggle weapons for the free syrian army and on the top of that's reuters news agency has revealed that turkey alongside saudi arabia and qatar has set out a secret military base in one of its southern cities to direct vital military communications support for the free syrian army now a number of experts have long warning that turkey's adamant support for the syrian opposition may come at a cost to its own security for a number of decades the turkish state has been struggling against its own militants i'm talking about the crudest on its workers party the been fighting for the establishment of an independent sovereign state for the kurds world's largest

people without a state a few months ago i haue the chance to visit several kurdish settlements around syria and i was very surprised to find that they are defected independent they have their own security force their own schools that own administration so old these developments with the kurds in syria leave turkey very nervous. and on thursday its prime minister accused bashar al assad of aiding kurdish militants in syria and as are the answered that his country it reserves the right to strike kurdish targets kurdish locations within syria pretty much like it does in iraq and at. least may be needed for turkish all self defense but if those attacks ever carried out that's going to make a very volatile a very bloody very unstable situation in this region far worse the u.s. was also allegedly involved in setting up

a secret weapons hard to smuggle weapons for the syrian rebels dr ali mohamed the editor in chief of the syria tribe young says turkey and the gulf states are acting far beyond international law the u.s. seems to have finally understood that it will not have a clean clean clear success in syria and if it decides to intervene it will ruin the whole country on the way and that's why it's leaving the dirty work to do its local proxies so dearie turkey seem to to like the idea of middle east controlled by the muslim brotherhood which they can control easily thinking that this is their battle it seems gives them the privileged. that's what they think nothing allows them to do so this is against international law this is against every concept of neighboring countries so they think it's ok for them and they think they will get away with it and that's why they act this

shadow of the pyramids or ancient temples in a desert sites here egyptians dig for a quick and illegal back it is easy to go deep under the cover of darkness and far from the nearest security guard but many don't even go there far instead turning over the own backyards under the ground on the every house there are only one so if you want to go to looted from million people on the ground even something as simple as a knife from the times of the pharaohs can sell for up to fifty million dollars on the black market deals are done through a labyrinth of illegal buyers across europe and the united states. of money digs happen and vast open places that are difficult for us to access those responsible then leave the country by sea or across the border where we have few police it's impossible to know what's been stolen directly from the ground as we have documented evidence that at least three hundred pieces restore them from museums
3:14 am
since the revolution it's estimated that illegal digs have increased one hundred fold in the last year those trying to safeguard egypt's in comparable history feel powerless the country's treasures are falling into the wrong hands and lost to the people forever the egyptian president may have more pressing matters right now but many archaeologists here feel the legacy of the people is surely worth fighting for before it's too late egypt is in a state of flux and while there are many people here worried about its future there just as many more you do about preserving its past policy r.t. . some of the main stories in brief for you now their man calling himself a joker person arrested in the u.s. state of maryland after he threatened to shoot up the business he was being fired from he reportedly made several threats after which police searched his apartment and found a heavy arsenal of guns a suspect in last week's paid. which left twelve killed and dozens wounded at the

and you can catch the kaiser report throughout the day right here on our team. the olympic games in london have gotten off to a shaky start with political controversies security failings and traffic conditions and concerns now it's some of the athletes in the main spotlight and it's not just because of their sporting skills it's their toned bodies that are grabbing the headlines as art he's an associate can i reports. faster higher stronger bodies built like machines and olympic extravaganza of athletes grace magazine covers baring it all it would be nice to tate like to not look at these athletes like you know these are special specimens almost members of a different race but these are people just like us they could they could help us strive to do better their superhuman bodies are on display in a competition for attention and personal exposure the olympic gold is not just the the gold at the when and where but the good old of all these endorsements and all
3:19 am
this this ability you know they want to cash in on it's their moment in the sun unfortunately i think that undermines the olympic goal and ideal. the original ideal and old two of lettuces in and human might scrapped the olympic dream and culture now transformed into glossy images of athletes striking a pose in the nude the original olympics were performed completely naked so you could make the case this is turning back to the original form of the olympics and while london will see plenty of action and t.v. coverage some people will choose not to watch simply because of its location i don't think london is a fun city to have it in and the brits are boring people so i'm not interested. in an ever expanding entertainment culture surrounding the olympics self p.r. is the new tradition and the fifteen minutes of fame an opportunity not to be missed you've got hundreds of athletes who come back to nothing but
3:20 am
a lot of them really look back and say well what do i get out of the last four years i could have made more money being a manager at mcdonald's corporation that's one of the biggest sponsors of the olympics is on a journey to send a somewhat confusing message while the athletes are busy promoting their stunning bodies mcdonald sets up the biggest joint in the world outside the olympic stadium a record one hundred fifty thousand condoms are also being distributed at the olympic village that's roughly fifteen condoms for each athlete some argue sexing up the olympics is slowly racing the true meaning of these historic games the marathon really became into effect and they base it off this is the great story in regards to peter's coming from wanting you know so that citizens about basically how the war was ending with the persians and going twenty five miles and just having bleeding feet and how that inspired the marathon for what it is today. while
3:21 am
the aura surrounding the olympics of today's anything but poised sportsmanship appears to be the last guest joining this party and hearty new york and while these athletes work hard to look fabulous and attract attention many people don't really remember their names neither do they pay that much attention to the olympics themselves as our very own new york resident has been finding out. do you really care about the olympics this week let's talk about that are you excited about the olympics i know i'm here. but is it crazy back home because of it yeah and we got out what are you excited about well team usa i hope we go all the way to be really great does that mean we're the best country in the world if we win all the gold medals oh i don't know about that people really aren't that into track and field and not so much you know then the swimming you know the media build up
3:22 am
between. phelps and his rival you know but you don't even know the name of the right man even to give his name on the front just finished and i think . for a minute do you think that the olympics are kind of a way to just distract people from what's really going on might be you know from your problems do you think people remember the names of all the athletes three months after the olympics are done i guess it depends what kind of sponsorships they've got and what advertisements are doing but yeah if their names are in plays and in lights everywhere yeah they're selling us wheaties yes exactly those athletes yeah they'll be remembered a lot of them probably wouldn't be you know i guess a sort all some boss that did push ups in london for a double decker bus with a big push up so that might for the olympics yeah that's insane so they're trying to yeah they're getting they're getting people excited any way that they can what
3:23 am
is why do they do that just for the good of sports no idea probably just try to drum up some more money for the country at that right over here tourism you know historically the olympics is something that's always meant to be a unifying action yes so it doesn't that kind of take away from that message of unification when it comes down to just drumming up business. you know i think greed is unfortunately taking over the priority of some folks whether or not you care about the olympics the bottom line is that you should be prepared to be bombarded by a lot of media coverage in the coming week. praised for preaching freedom and reform the georgian leadership is cast as a fledgling democracy success story both by the western media and by the state channels at home however some journalists working in the country see
3:24 am
a very different picture as i. found out. that's exactly what we're seeing you know my cancer of the world in my part of the world you know you are a liver and begin your energy by giving people more freedom freedom is the key word find words from the georgian president some western officials like hillary clinton continuously praised me truly for his supposed program of reform but journalists in the country are less impressed and say talk of freedom doesn't extend to the media made at being a journalist is now a dangerous profession in georgia there's always a risk of being accused of being a spy journalist get beaten up frequently all of this is happening in front of the entire country. of ourselves the chances are that most people in georgia won't find out about these cases from their evening news according to the latest polls more than eighty percent of georgians depend on t.v. as their main source of information yet georgians only have free access to three
3:25 am
channels all of them controlled by the state one way or the other. one channel is owned by saakashvili eight another by his friends relative to all people get really is just state controlled propaganda and i think so whatever georgians don't get the full scope of their country's events from the t.v. sets after all there is always the internet but still they have to understand a lot of people here still live in rural areas and for a lot of them the world wide web is simply not available readily at their fingertips independent channels like of can't see or channel nine are available only to those who have satellite dishes and other luxury from most georgians. sometimes i have friends or relatives visiting from other parts of georgia and they watch these channels and say what is this really happening in this country we knew nothing about it. but operating an independent media outlet isn't easy here journalists say their cash flow has run dry since advertisers were told by
3:26 am
authorities to stay away from channels which may be affiliated with the opposition on top of that their every move is being closely watched by authorities here i know that i constantly find myself facing over the top control from local officials i'm always being followed by some strange people who say they're from someone known news agencies and ask me questions why do we film stories about political prisoners for example. just it's about state officials don't feel comfortable coming to us because we ask questions they don't want to answer but state controlled media never ask those questions. president saakashvili is a frequent guest on various american t.v. channels but he's never made an appearance on any of the opposition channels at home perhaps it's not so much the questions that he minds as the effect his answers may have and billy see ga. r.t. . our interview show spotlight is coming your way in a few minutes that's after
