11:01 pm
and broadcasting live from our studios in central moscow this is r.t. quite have you with us now washington and turkey are weighing bringing in a no fly zone over syria as well as getting ready for worst case scenarios including any use of chemical weapons by the assad regime u.s. foreign policy chief hillary clinton has pledged a further five and a half a million dollars in aid to syrian rebels during a visit to turkey that brings total funding for the opposition to eighty two million since the conflict began last year in istanbul clinton received a far from warm welcome riot police clashed with turkish anti-war activists from a leftist party trying to reach the building where she was to meet prime minister at the one officers responded with a baton tear gas injuring at least five people. recently stepped up threats to use force in syria if it feels threatened from across the border while western states are stepping up plans for a post assad syria journalist don de bar says that by supporting the rebels they
11:02 pm
are only adding to the violence. there's been some discussion of the possibility of . so-called black ops chemical attack where some of the u.s. agent forces that are on the ground in syria fighting the government would launch a chemical attack and attempt to lay the blame for that on the syrian government mind i think that's a real possibility and very dangerous game to play you on the one hand creating an enemy that has no state. really isn't almost silent anywhere and that just is highly weaponized very angry and extremely religious the conduct of the war against the government on the soil where the syrian people live obviously cannot bring peace to the syrian people it's intended to provoke a response from the government the government has the choice of either not responding in allowing armed terrorists to blow things up and blow up their troops and to blow up and execute civilians all of which has been happening or to fight back which of course means that there are parts of the cities that get bombed and
11:03 pm
there are people that are displaced these two choices are what are being presented by american policy in syria. the u.n. chief has back to the presence of international monitors in syria which would have provided impartial means of assessing the situation on the ground the observers extended mandate expires in less than ten days with a veteran algerian diplomat touted to become the new u.n. and arab league envoy after kofi annan quit here's artie's put it all over with more. it's not a job many people would have wanted you think considering the situation in syria but it's that lakhdar brahimi will be taking over from kofi annan as the next special envoy on the syrian crisis now the seventy eight year old former algerian foreign minister does have pedigree when it comes to dealing with serious conflicts he was instrumental in forming a peace in the late one nine hundred eighty s. in the lebanese civil war in two thousand and one he was sent by the u.n.
11:04 pm
as the envoy to afghanistan as the states invaded the country following nine eleven he was again sent to iraq in two thousand and three for the invasion of that country representing the u.n. on that occasion but it's also interesting to look at what type of an envoy he will be kofi annan had quite openly spoke to both the syrian rebels and the assad government now if we look a little bit better he means personal life in his personal contacts we might see a different approach from him but he's daughter a former b.b.c. and c.n.n. correspondent is married to wear one of the sons of the king of jordan. strong family ties there jordan of course a country that has been linked to the smuggling of weapons and other arms into syria into the hands of the syrian rebels and jordan of course a haven a place of choice for those defecting from the assad government to go so perhaps we
11:05 pm
could see me focusing my attention focusing his attention on speaking to the rebels as opposed to the way that kofi annan tried to do it with speaking to both the rebels and the assad government but it looks like he will take over from kofi annan so it looks like the next envoy going to be locked up or he the four algerian foreign minister taking on that difficult job in syria. peter all of our reporting for us there now qatar has reportedly tried to bribe the syrian ambassador in my allegedly promising one million dollars and a political asylum in exchange for defecting the syrian diplomat is thought to have turned down the offer calling it flagrant interference in syria's internal affairs middle east history and politics professor jeremy salt says gulf nations are using their huge financial clout to help topple the government of president assad what about the gulf states is they have any supplies money. to buy people out and this is the first question that should be asked will these defectors how much they pay
11:06 pm
you how much do you get then there must be some kind of sliding scale i mean what is the ambassador with what is a foreign minister worth what is a kind of a low level represented mauritania worth i mean he was reportedly been given also a one million dollars plus twenty thousand dollars a month for the next twenty years which you know is pretty good but one would imagine that people would be offered even more than we know what the beginning of this whole protest movement qatar is a bribe. the foreign minister tried to buy him out he refused he just rejected their offer so it's very important possible i mean anyone who's now high up in the syrian government if they want to kind of defect they're going to get a lot of money sure and they can go live in doha which might not be to have once taste but they will certainly get a lot of money if they turn their backs on their own governments. well coming up on our t.v. the fall out from the revolution in egypt so a few remaining jews if you're asking waiting with threats from the country's new leadership as cairo's relations with israel. and keeping the internet
11:07 pm
safe and free but is it really possible to achieve both of us to investigate in a few minutes. washington says it has a visibility inside iraq's nuclear program confident it will know if you're wrong moves towards building a bomb the remarks look to be directed at israel which warned earlier that the international community might not realize in time to prevent iran from acquiring a weapon israeli media suggests the country could launch an imminent strike on iran before the presidential elections in the united states the plans could lead to a rift between the allies as the u.s. insists that tightening economic sanctions is you know a new law signed on friday prohibits american entrepreneurs from doing business with the iranian oil sector and also shipping and insurance companies are to use on associates are going to reports according to a major daily israeli newspaper the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and
11:08 pm
his defense minister would like to strike iran as early as before the u.s. presidential elections taking place in november this year now amid escalating media reports and expert predictions that such an attack could in fact be around the corner the peepers front page article on friday offered by its senior commentators and reportedly based off of conversations with israel's defense minister says that if it were up to benjamin netanyahu and his minister of defense israel would cause a military attack on iran some time within the next several months importantly israel's security cabinet ministers have been resisting such an option for now what's important here is while israel is weighing the. option we know of course that iran continues to insist that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes exclusively and we have seen the obama administration be careful in urging israel
11:09 pm
to stick with diplomacy and now of course the big question is whether israel may in fact go ahead with such an attack and whether or not it will wait for a green light from washington importantly experts in this article are quoted to say that if such an attack were to take place before the u.s. presidential elections there this would cause a major embarrassment to barack obama as well as really cast a blow to his success in these elections because as we know his main rival republican mitt romney has never excluded such an option you remember there are always more stories for you that are to dot com here's a look at what you can find there right now. a shocking find during a special operation in central russia the police discovered a bunker full of cult members and dozens of children that spent ten years in underground cells without daylight. plus social media thrill seekers are paying the price for playing up to the camera another fatality from the craze for

11:18 pm
even weaker than what's on the books elsewhere but for online activists countries like the u.s. or britain are case studies in how not to regulate the web you can see the different countries use different tactics whether it's copyright laws or cyber security laws or just using national security as an excuse to go after for screech crease speech may be enshrined in america's constitution but in a world where acts of terror could come not only from a few extremists and suicide vests but from a few keystrokes on the computer the keystrokes of u.s. citizen. are increasingly under suspicion if you see something say something according to the f.b.i. fliers anyone with a passing interest in personal data security could be a potential terrorist report suspicious activity before. the crime detection may be the stuff of fiction the homeland security department is considering

other people who say i just don't want this and i'd rather eat whole foods and things that are grown organically or or at least stain of leaf if you think of this search object for it how our attitude towards changes when we move toward natural is very big when i was his sixty's and seventy's it's come back now again and people are starting to do things themselves again the room you know that stumbles and your meat and the cheese and things like that so this is definitely action against industrial food right now but i think it's going to be the next trend in a major way for the next several years our hey that's eaten g.m.o. corn it's not directly consumed by humans but it's indirect and down the line other things we don't really know about that ten years after consuming people find that's something seeds but the government so far has decided that these are virtually equal you know the corn that it's g.m.o. and the corn that isn't. really you don't have the test that you have a lot of because the same organs which i think you might might disagree with. and

11:24 pm
think about it a glass of wine is like nine dollars and it costs the same amount why do you think organic costs so much more regulation at least in finland it's really strict on what you can do and how you do it and the crop is smaller so that's the problem doing doesn't that defy logic shouldn't it be cheaper to eat a tomato yeah yeah it should be true that's the world we live and yeah i'm a medical doctor is there that the food is. let's say polluted or or it's not healthy like contains a lot of transfer sun so on and so on then it can lead to cancer but genetically modified food cannot lead to consummate this nonsense so there's a lot of people that assert it dies why do you think they get away with that but why does the demo have such a bad rep i think it's mainly some kind of propaganda a lot more people are interested to get healthier and other parts of the world so where do you think america falls in that spectrum very well oh peace today is the number one for kids here is it just
