from germany's party of reason thinks the eurozone is already beyond repair and i'm glad merkel's optimistic messages are going to change any of that oh they doubt she does not think that it's working she is not optimistic she is just lying to the people this is what politicians usually do all the life of the people she knows that portugal can never pay back they stopped you cannot avoid bankruptcy these countries are all bankrupt they trust have to declare than that of the public but they want of course of what harm to the people and to the country but the harm would be even greater if you delay to drop out of the euro zone either to drop out of the paper money system it does harm there's no way to avoid this every paper money collapse goes this way so you can't avoid. the syrian conflict continues to break its borders with israel no feeling the ripple effect the jewish state's fired missiles over the border for two consecutive

days in response to mortar shells landing in the golan heights party's policy or has more on that. a mortar shell landed in an open area near the vicinity of in his lady defense force military base in the occupied golan heights it did not cause any injuries or damage but israel immediately responded and fired shells now according to israeli military sources they did hit a syrian mobile artillery but we have no more information at this stage in connection with that but certainly the israeli army confirming that they were direct hits taken on the syrian side now the audio was also issued a complaint with the united nations forces in the area they say that any kind of fire into israel from syria will not be tolerated and that israel will deal with those in the harshest terms this is the second straight day that they has been a mortar fired from syria landing in northern israel the first incident saw israel
2:06 pm
responding with warning shots but what is significantly different today is that we are witnessing direct hits now there has been a truce in place between israel and syria since nine hundred seventy three and for the better part of the last four decades there has been an easy peace between these two countries but those latest incidents certainly is sending alarm bells and people are significantly worried that the situation could escape having said this is well does not believe that the mortars that landed in israeli territory were targeted to wards as well but they're rather they are the by products of the fighting that is happening inside syria between rebel forces and forces loyal to the syrian president bashar assad. will move toward the gulf states of recognized new rebel coalition as legitimate representative of the syrian people the body was formed after tomorrow from talks with various opposition factions in cattle's capital though or across weakened the deal is the result of relentless pressure
2:07 pm
from the u.s. and its european and arab allies who want to see the current syrian regime toppled but some analysts are questioning whether the newly formed. rebel coalition is taking the real syrian people's interests into account. from the very beginning of the conflict in syria the big question is how much influence do these groups outside of syria actually have within syria and i think there's a strong argument to say that they don't have much widespread support within syria i think a fundamental point which has been missed is that the future affairs of an independent sovereign country are being discussed by foreign governments in a foreign country that is absolutely outrageous we're talking about the united nations the pillars of the united nations states. being completely undermines i mean if there was a domestic crisis for example in spain would it be acceptable for foreign governments to convene in rome the capital of italy to discuss the future affairs
2:08 pm
of spain it's absolutely outrageous and it's also illegal ones of international who are. the u.k.'s top general suggested the british troops are on standby to intervene in syria in the case of a worsening humanitarian situation in the country but some british politicians argue the crisis will of deteriorate further with foreign action. well the humanitarian situation is very bad and the only solution to the humanitarian crisis is a cease fire the cease fire isn't going to come about if western forces intervene there will make the situation markedly worse we've had interventions in iraq and libya and there's been a huge loss of life that's followed from that there is no stomach amongst the ordinary people of britain for british forces to be involved in yet another war this has to be sold as a sale to clay and it can only be solved politically if the big powers all of whom have close relations with either syria turkey iran or the neighboring countries get
2:09 pm
together and promote an effective ceasefire the political future of syria that has to be the way for the intervention absolutely no way intervention is not going to bring about peace it will only prolong the conflict. generally called with check out one analyst says no more first hand reports from syria they will also find a timeline of the long running civil conflict. the b.b.c.'s in a bad way tonight botched journalism false child abuse accusations and revelations of decades of paedophilia this ng a number of key executives feel the heat that the a broadcasters head of news and a deputy of the latest to step aside today just days after the director general quit his laura smith reports from london. the director general george and wessel resigned over the weekend saying that it he felt it was the owner of both thing to do but what might not be seen as the honorable thing to do is that he's currently taking all four hundred fifty thousand pounds of his yearly pay packets despite
2:10 pm
having been in the job only fifty four days and of course much of that fifty four days he spent some would say in effect actually trying to fight these fires that keep on breaking out the b.b.c. and that money will be paid by the taxpayer just the latest thing is these allegations by a man called steve meston who said that he was repeatedly sexually abused as a child by a senior politician that was reported on the b.b.c.'s flagship current affairs program news night and all it only all of that was this steve messam showing the first graph of lord mcalpine and he said oh no actually i'm sorry i was mistaken it wasn't him after all if that hadn't been enough in itself of of the jimmy savile scandal again newsnight had done an investigation into jimmy savile who was a much loved children's entertainer back when i was growing up which essentially exposed him as a paedophile that program though was spiked by b.b.c. b.b.c. leadership they were ordered to drop it at least in part because other parts of the

syria where the b.b.c. used to ferry to graph that was taken in iraq in two thousand and three but used it to illustrate a massacre in the syrian city of houla and there was also back in two thousand and three a very serious instance where a b.b.c. journalist revealed that dr david kelly was the source for his report that the government had sex stop the dossier on the weapons of mass destruction in iraq which of course led to the invasion of iraq. after being outed in that way was subsequently found dead again in the wake of that the director general resigned but this is this is an erosion of trust really that's been going back for some years. reporting from london there and indeed home is not a u.k. citizens these days were. very. professional.

were part of their pillow talk pickle is that i don't know if a lot of you heard this but d.c. and extend actually had taken a couple of living militia members prisoner in and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back so that it's still being vetted the challenging thing for general to translate is that in his new position he's not allowed to communicate with the press by the way the cia adamantly denies the allegations that they held prisoners at the consulate in benghazi and nobody at that point heard anything about the cia holding prisoners in benghazi but everybody knew about the access that paula broadwell had to the general because she was his biographer now it turns out that she had an even greater access to the general when general petraeus resigned he cited his own extremely poor judgment and some are wondering whether that your judgment was just about the affair or it could also be about having shared more with his mistress than just a moment together there's another twist to this is when your parents the fall of

broadwell was not the kind you think her felt the f.b.i. were investigating her allegedly caressing his e-mail sent the woman who also happens to know general petraeus and as officials here are saying that's how they found out about the affair general petraeus was idolised the public had to go through a similar trauma if you will with the other again and then general who was also idolized in many ways general stanley mcchrystal he fell from grace and resigned when the rolling stone magazine quoted him saying unflattering things around the administration from the media here of course it's been all over the train a scandal when they learned that there was another woman involved it got. i'm spinning all over again with her discussions about how the level of testosterone affects a man's judgment on all kinds of things they say word every detail of this story and one thing that was actually said to watch is that what the agency and i mean the cia is actually doing doesn't get that much coverage things like how they pick
2:19 pm
the targets for the targeted assassination program things that the public should want to know if national security and it's secret but when he comes to the director's bedroom all of a sudden everybody wants to know and the media are there to question every detail of the affair as far as let's say collateral damage from cia drone strikes not as interested gun and she can they will probably ask about has been keeping an eye on the key players in america's military and intelligence as the asia times roving correspondent left with thoughts you've got about it pepper you going to you well you know you really who has done over this all the media who how much damage really has this scandal dealt with first of all as to whether. well it's a bedroom farce not harps back to the nineteenth century or the late eighteenth and france in fact the problem is spread through is a national hero the problem is the second problem is that pharaoh is a national hero but he's basically
