the leader of the very syrian opposition coalition which the u.s. has just formally recognized and is supportive of came out and asked that the u.s. to reconsider their decision on almost right because they've been so helpful in the fight against al saud but the decision to formally recognize the syrian opposition coalition will pave the way for more support for these rebels and they're asking for weapons for a lot of weapons including heavy artillery but washington is accusing the massacres of using weapons bound for use in populated areas and its fight against rebels who serves to further allegations that scud missiles have been fired and warnings that the chemical arms could be the next step jacob holmberg founder and president of the future of freedom foundation so the u.s. is deliberately demonizing the syrian government. we've heard this stuff before about you know saddam hussein's debbi m.d.s. and he was going to unleash them on the us and mushroom clouds over american cities

and it was entirely bogus it was that it was a way to get the american people to support the invasion and occupation of the country and that's what all of this interventionism is all about to install their dictators into power look like how the us empire is not complaining about the dictatorship in bahrain i mean there you've got a military u.s. military base so they got to stay quiet about that tyranny and day you see what went on in egypt you see in saudi arabia i mean the u.s. has long supported dictatorship saddam hussein was one of the ones they supported and so this is about regime change in the hopes of installing a pro u.s. regime but as we've learned things don't come out is there as they often plan him to be on a deadline issued by syrian rebels threatening to kill ukrainian journalists captured back in october expires on thursday the kidnappers of edge of the members of the free syrian army are demanding a fifteen million dollar ransom for release middle east correspondent their reports

. the journalists unhappy coach never was taken hostage in october hones the free syrian army has held her for nearly two months they have accused her of being both a russian and a syrian spy she has appeared in two youtube videos that were released earlier by the free syrian army and in one of those she appealed to the embassies of ukraine and russia as well as to the syrian government to meet the demands of the kidnappers it's very difficult to say whether in fact these demands will in fact be made she read a text in those videos in arabic in which admitted to having participated in the fighting and having worked as a military interpreter with syria and russian officers but n.g.o.s doubt the authenticity of these videos believing that they were made while she was under duress now the ukrainian foreign ministry has also released a statement released last month saying that officials were negotiating for her release but they did not offer sort of the details they have of course urged

damascus repeatedly to work more actively in trying to secure her release coach nevers not the first journalist to have been kidnapped or faced the fear of death by the hands of the rebels if you remember earlier this year there was a new brain in journalism who was allegedly killed while doing a live report according to press television which was the broadcaster he worked for he was killed by a rebel fire we also had in november of this year although not a journalist a prominent syrian actor by the name of mohamed ruf lie who was also tortured and killed by the rebels for his anti rebel views so this certainly is a lot of intimidation that is happening within syria at the hands of rebels for people and particularly for journalists who are seen not to back their position. but an early christmas boost for britain's support at least some of them are expected drop in the oil rich region of the recovery. dictates of the steps away from recession. in the localizing the internet russia china. and

minister but that should be enough in order to see them receive the next round of bailout money that the country's been crying out for in fact they've been waiting for that cash since june the international monetary fund had expected greece to be able to get its debt situation down to one hundred and twenty four percent overall economic output by twenty twenty now that really does not seem likely right now this is because the i.m.f. to say well we won't be lending any more money to any countries that can't pay back their debts however there is a dangerous precedent with this in terms of greece being able to return the money of course private investors private creditors see greece well a lot of banks and a lot of insurance companies have already had to take that hit and it may swell there's no way we're going to get this cash back from greece but that is subsidy that the i.m.f. certainly are not willing to accept right now. europe is now one step closer to

governing of the internet and particularly naming numbering the web sites across the world is in the hands of one organization based in the united states which is called the corporation for assigned names and numbers and definitely this has been outraging several countries including russia china and saudi arabia who are looking to change that who are looking to redistribute the control over the naming the websites and basically governing the internet among different governments among many countries in the world there has been certainly massive outrage in the last year or so over the fact that the internet is being governed at all but the idea of the countries willing to change the system is basically that if anybody governs the internet it has not to be one organization or one country has to be fair for everyone and everyone has to take part in this obviously the final answer is in the hands of the united nations agency for international to communication and we expecting this decision to be delivered on friday during a conference in dubai but clearly the biggest opposition to the current. change of

5:11 am
there's just nobody to put more police out there to fight them the police chief really only had one solution offer a given situation go home lock your doors and load and you know what actually that's not that bad of a proposition america's always been a country where people been expected to look out for themselves and i appreciate the police chiefs honesty but i know the world we live in and i have a feeling that the second some homeowner shoots a guy who jumps over his fence at night that homeowners going to go to jail for life you can't expect a nineteenth century attitude towards crime we'll be able to work in a twenty first century world where rapists can sue you because they slipped on your slippery kitchen floor if you want people to be able to defend themselves that's great but you have to allow them the legal liberty to do so or else the criminals will just take over but that's just my opinion.

revolution at the time of the shah why should they give up now just because western powers say so while iran's nuclear program is now a target of western political discourse there is only suspicion and no internationally recognized evidence that the country is moving towards build an atomic weapon iranian officials believe all this tension is fabricated with the sole purpose to demonize them in the eyes of international community if you have know you've in your kitchen and some of the recent concert contouring. it's very dangerous. to some. this is. george king. the perceived fear is that the iranian regime can't be trusted with a nuclear capacity but even the. he's one to two to change of leadership seat should be non-negotiable for the country.

a country cast out by the international community and north korea has been widely criticized over its recent successful rocket launch with the u.n. security council becoming the latest to condemn the move it promised an appropriate response sparking speculation the country may be facing further sanctions which are eagerly sought by the u.s. and some european states while north korea says it merely put a weather satellite into space countries like japan claiming it was a long range missile test. second attempt to fail in april an expert on north korea professor ruediger frank thinks sanctions are highly unlikely to change the country's course of military development. sanctions or an appropriate means to show your political dissatisfaction but in terms of being effective. useless in terms of north korea sanctions up in the closet for decades. korea had enough time to find ways around those sanctions the humanitarian concern as it is the allies
5:19 am
the tried it so i think sanctions have more or less a symbolical function but they will have little actual effects on those korea but are it's a rocket or a missile is definitely a question of interpretation from a political perspective because technically both devices would be you saying is the difference is what the pay a little bit you put a satellite tall it's a rocket if you put a nuclear warhead on top it's a missile that basically it's the same thing to go to the u.n. to see a resolution there are hoodies interpretations on the legal expert but it also if he doesn't believe the office resolution is enough to prohibit. all of that launches for peaceful purposes frankly speaking i do nothing to believe that north korea intends an all out attack on its neighbors this program including nuclear program has purely defensive and the deterrence of purposes it's in no size interest to have war because if you have war in korea both korea selection is off for a lot as long as the regime is stable in north korea and that's actually the key pressure

economy on the right market so we're still getting some of the tail end of summer olympics effect and we're not sure whether when we start to move out of a period you're going to still see this really strong employment growth particularly amongst young people take for example those on the government's work programme that they have to come along to the job center is part of that program and to be signed up for mandatory unpaid work experience now those people will no longer be included in the unemployment statistics very clearly that's very far for a more ordinary people indeed these people on the program themselves would consider employed so you can see you have to be very careful with this not these statistics giving us do you feel like the government's doing enough to help young people can see anything around me. really and how you find the on the work program a lot of young people we stay can t. have you know i haven't found it all that helpful most of. the people are looking for the. young person who. never would have before in their

lives that's a. of course is not all bad news there are some encouraging signs in the statistics but it's very early days and to conclude the labor market here in the u.k. is back to full health with not only be full holiday it would be dangerous to you in fact predictions saying that in twenty thirteen we could see youth unemployment told that one million marker again now that could have either long term implications for the young labor market here in the united kingdom and right now where things on the precipice of venturing a triple dip recession and so for millions of workers all across the twenty thirty is looking for that to be very far from a happy new. survey are a london now fighting shopping and strong language that's not a bar in ukraine but how the first session of the country's new music to parliament

sixty years ago there was only one person who could ride out of the kremlin specif tower gate cis one one five soviet limousine he had power that any emperor would envy. this car belongs to joseph stalin driving home from work which is no simple affair for the leader stalin used to sit on a special converted seat protected by guards on each side he trusted no one. the soviet leader strictly instructed the driver which way to go in the car would often turn abruptly from the white when he was on to moscow's side streets weaving along and confusing. he was ready to kill people and he did kill them and if he could do it he felt they could also act this way and scared him to death.
