syrian army the main armed opposition group in the country has threatened president said he would follow the fate of libya's leader moammar gadhafi this as bush said at his exclusive interview with r.t. he has no plans to leave syria thought all musri to have a say video department who's listened to the words of the president says us it is do me that it in you statement you will channel he said he would not leave syria we know these are very well because he will not be able to leave syria he and his people not money to leave the country the free syrian army will not let him do this he will not get out of syria long enough you'll be lucky if you reach the same fate as. now the western backed syrian opposition is still locked in talks over the creation of a unified group to forge a broader alliance against the government the syrian national council vying to keep its main role has chosen
a new leader appealing for more weapons to help oust asad an anti-war activist brian becker says the opposition was never after a peaceful solution to the conflict. if the opposition is saying to the government and other forces within the syrian government that their fate will be the fate of sodomized and murdered by a mob of course that leaves little incentive for the syrian government to sit down and negotiate but these forces within the syrian opposition have never wanted to negotiate there were forces that did want to negotiate did seek to have change and reform in syria but without foreign intervention and without civil war and they have been pushed to the side by the syrian the free syrian army and i have also been pushed to the side by washington and by the nato powers who really only wanted civil war as the main method to carry out the regime change in syria. the syrian president says only the ballot box can determine his future insisting he has the support of his people and the army bashar asad warned against foreign intervention
in syria saying the western powers have picked him as one of the bogeyman the sophie shevardnadze spoke to the embattled damascus. that he is not a western puppet he also denies the fact that civil war is taking place in this country he's saying that it's not civil war it's a conflict where he has to fight different fractions of terrorism he says on the fact that the financing of this terrorist fractions precedented and it was coming from abroad what he told me that if the finest that were to stop that he would probably need about two weeks more to restore peace in his country and he also said that if the west were to intervene militarily it would have a domino effect from atlantic to pacific and no one would be gained from that and he also said that west tends to create enemies for themselves like communism in iraq saddam hussein and he feels that bashar al assad in syria is the new enemy not syria but he himself so he feels that the fact that conflict has asked related it
is because the west has created a new anime in the space. that there wasn't a problem. you know it would create any means it was. seen for different reasons they want to create the new. program the president has to do first of all you have to focus on. listening to what they say i asked him it's not just the west but a lot of countries have betrayed you on the first occasion why do you have so many so many enemies in the arab world he said well actually a lot of arab countries support me but they're afraid to say it out loud i asked him why it is that because they're all under the strength and power of petro dollars i also ask him about turkey and if the war with turkey was a real possibility and he didn't doesn't believe that there's going to be an actual war with turkey but he also emphasized the fact that the turkish people are the enemies of syrian people and they're always been
a friendly nation it's carried on and his government that's the problem and that's against bashar and wants to all special because god wants to reassure his and strengthen his political position in turkey and in the region personally. and you can throughout the region as it was doing that with many people you. different it's. important not to be ready for what do you hope you think that he's asking do you regret anything what's your biggest mistake he says of course i have requests and of course i have made mistakes but when i ask him what is your biggest mistake he wouldn't give me a precise answer he said it's too early to talk about precise mistakes and precise regrets because the war or the call think is still going on i also asked him if he were to turn the clock back to the fifteenth of march that's when the protests started to escalate would he do anything differently and he said no i wouldn't because within the marches within the protest marches there were people who started
to shoot innocent civilians and the government forces so the government army had no other choice than to respond with force to want to do exactly the same. exactly to think the. different parties to forge. and to stand against the terrorist group but i always thought you didn't start. the cover of motions but within those motions you had militants who thought that the civilians. at the same time so he said he wouldn't change much about a year and a half ago when the protests started to grow and escalate he would do exactly the same and if you see the full exclusive interview with syria's president bashar last at eight am g.m.t. here on r.t. it's also available on our web site r t v dot com. i'm feeling and i mean. maybe you feel you have to be fancy you know but stephen

of world war two related to d.-day invasion one hundred forty four had an affair with his driver f.d.r. president. roosevelt knew about it but they didn't believe it so there's something else deeper here something else that i don't think anybody fully understands this general general petraeus may have is the critics over c.i. a lot of folks have problems at cia i'm a trained case officer trained by cia. but i know a lot of friends over there and you know they have a very unique structure a very unique culture and anytime it outside or comes in such as betray us and others as well there's a great deal of resistance because all we see is not an insider is not a trained intelligence officer so used techniques his leadership was. there was a lot of folks who are used to it let's face it the military technique is a general he's used to doing things a military way syrians a civilian organization i think from day one there were clashes dabbling clashes

did you vote are you happy with the outcome yes i mean what do you expect to change in the next four years. i guess i was. expecting for you make these well i don't know exactly was going to change i didn't vote i didn't really care why not i don't even know why quite anybody stood for just not something that interests me i just go with the flow so you don't think it affects your everyday life i'm sure it does. i'm sure it does but do i have much control over it and it really feel that but voting is the only way that you can control i still in feel like i had that much control no i didn't why not i was torn between the two. figure to be in my own interest but there were more than two running you could have voted for someone else no i do think there were more the people that were running for the presidency and you didn't even know it. those two
parties are too strong and they're entrenched and i don't think you want to change that but what about if we start really trying to separate money from politics or put solutions like that on the table. we'll have the right to vote. these people out do you think though there might be room for a third party come two thousand and sixteen. well i focus on whatever i can hope and they can do something but it's you know it's a tough road to go you know what's it going to take for the american people to wake up and realize there's more than two parties. i'm not sure i sometimes think we put a lot of pressure on the president and a lot of the change has to come from with us as well you know we can't rely on him one hundred percent you know you've got to you've got to get up in the morning and you've got to work for your country yourself you can't rely on one man to do it all for you oh i. i think the only people in this country that have ever really been able to make a difference usually end up dead. that is so sad sad but true but. do you think it'll ever change. i would hope it would i don't know what the catalyst for that
will be but do you think you and i can be a catalyst don't you think that people can demand more and make a change. i'd like to think that so do you think that we can make people more aware in these four years that we have until the next election i think so how do we do that. that's a good question we're doing it right now we are whether or not you expect anything to change in the u.s. the bottom line is real change is probably not going to start with the president in visioning it it's going to start with the people demanding it. in just a few minutes we've got breaking the set's was house abby martin. tucked in between the russian mainland japan and the suckling island is the island of

washington post which censors civilian death count through drone bombings were lacking for the government it's kind of hard to sort through the dissent from ation so that's where i come in a break is that. what. we're up to do you ever seen anything like. here's a disturbing story the kansas city family was completely startled when they discovered a surveillance camera on a tree in their front yard take a look at this. and he said it was first learned about the care about last thursday after her father noticed it my dad came through the front door and said big brother is watching us and i don't know what he's talking about so he brings me to the back door and he points out the camera that he spotted while he was walking around the yard took these photos of the camera which he says were pointed at her bedroom her children's room.
