damascus to do anything of the sort surveys come out of this or omission the statement denying any use of chemical weapons saying that this actually is a well known tactic used by terrorist groups according to the statement of the syrian army when these groups feel that they are on the fallback they talk to chemical attacks to stop them from advancing or going to discuss the circumstances surrounding these attacks and it doesn't make a lot of sense for the syrian government and swimming tommy achieving actually substantial most regains of more than one from that it would do something that would enable the rebels to benefit from international support to actually force the army to bring its operations into a complete halt when washington was asked to back up its allegations that damascus was preparing a chemical attack it failed to provide any evidence but as daniel bushell explains the u.s. doesn't seem to need much proof when it comes to accusing assad russia has one

2:04 pm
a villain but man would go off and america is batman. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if it does something really dumb for no reason again the u.k. will join the us in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action and if you've been following events in syria recently you know they'll hitting the united states has attacked as i said five times and what they say is self defense. problem is justifying the prolonged conflict isn't easy western voters don't want another gung ho i mean campaign they learned their lesson off the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions

2:06 pm
literally posting a mock video of a wrestling match between him and of course c.n.n. it with thank you. trump has been accusing c.n.n. of producing fake news him being biased against him since his election in a tweet he said he was thinking of changing the channels name to fraud news c.n.n. . the fake media tried to stop us from going to the white house but i'm president and they're not with the were the fact is the press has destroyed themselves because they went too far.
2:07 pm
and have responded with their own tweets accusing the president of encouraging violence and juvenile behavior. c.n.n. has been on the defensive quite a lot this week several undercover videos were posted online allegedly exposing attitudes of the channel towards russia related stories they want to see them constantly in. russia because from. this regimes this freedom reserve the right but also you. know it's just like. it's mostly the you know we don't know. john. what do you think's going to happen this week it's all russia. that's going to be really . now what you just saw was a c.n.n. producer and one of their political commentators is the last of van jones responded to the undercover video saying his words have been taken out of context and that he
2:08 pm
did not think there was nothing that claims team trump colluded with russia and tried to cover it up but it's videos were released by investigative journalism group project a virus house best found that is already facing a million dollar lawsuit over an undercover video sting against democratic organizations on the activists we asked americans about what they think of the media's coverage and of the obsession with rush related stories. are you tired of hearing about trump and russia oh yes actually i guess that's all i hear about problems. it's just getting a little tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to be the truth has to come out and the truth is that there was interference in the american electorate system but by putin the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. is they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not me not a my friend i think they would that something if if there is something secret about
2:09 pm
something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out in the open if there is something you'll come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less and less i'd like to hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares i know it could be my next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it only as the people behind the undercover video what the russia to. through the entire video out there i mean people can judge for themselves and you have an earthling from the conversation but that's certainly my interpretation and i think that's the way the mainstream media from first reading it what the way the drug war and look at the line of strikes again in the president of the united states just to a radio zogby ursule instagram's you know so i'm assuming your group is well it's not just c.n.n. i want to make it clear you are the mainstream media in america you know you are
2:10 pm
telling lies you're betraying or you're keeping stories you're keeping the little or none of them through you're on our list. for the start of the week so the u.k.'s minority conservative government government finally signed a deal with northern ireland's democratic unionist party to shore up its power but the deal came as a price with prime minister to resume a having to stump up a billion pounds for the province over the next two years. we have reached an agreement with the conservative party on support for government in parliament disagreement with operate to deliver a stable government in the united kingdom's national interest at this vital time the agreement sees the prime minister backtrack on a number of key election pledges including reforms to pensions and benefits but do you paint house they agree to support the tories on all matters of confidence including breaks it talks and national security issues that need to see
2:11 pm
a check and it has been taking a closer look. no you said there was. no nonsense oh oh oh oh oh oh instead of stepping down the british prime minister had a different plan but it seemed like whichever way she turned there was potential for trouble the tories have penned a deal with the democratic unionist party of northern ireland which is opposed to hard bracks it something may has accepted as a possibility on top of that the d u p have been criticised for their policies on same sex marriage and abortion as well as previously inks with violent paramilitary groups in northern ireland not a perfect ally but the attendee u.p.a. m.p.'s have been crucial for theresa may so much so she was ready to pay their support again with a hefty price tag of one billion pounds to be spent over the next twenty years that's in addition to the previously announced five hundred million in funds to northern ireland and who is footing the bill you may ask as always the taxpayer
2:12 pm
taxpayers resent politicians cooking up deals behind closed doors that invariably end with their cash being thrown wherever it's politically advantageous rather than where it could be best spent to recently called it a good deal and they do you p.r. delighted if you think the same applies to scotland and wales think again this is the worst kind of pork barrel politics which has shredded the last vestiges of credibility of this weekend prime minister it is outrageous that the prime minister believes she can secure her own political future by throwing money at northern ireland was completely ignoring the rest of the u.k. despite the british government having now plastered together a solution the question is for how long will it stick after all the irony is that a mere seven tory m.p.'s switching sides would potentially be enough for a majority to slip away and if the party wanted. opposition labor leader jeremy kohl been claims the deal was not in the national interest but rather in may's own interests and he voiced concern about where the money for the agreement was coming
2:13 pm
from and the fact there was no investment for the rest of the country. after the break we'll be going live to some pages back where football's confederations cup final is underway. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around quite. come from washington washington post media the media. voters elected to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before .
2:14 pm
one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with cyber crime is. who did it what did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks and you've mentioned one across the recent won't run somewhere attack it's still unclear where that originated from so our clear message to government is to work together around the world to minimize this risk to grow those relationships and make sure that diplomacy is the key to everything. while it's the last day of the confederations cup two thousand and seventeen as the final between chile and germany is now underway neil harvey and stan collymore and some pages but i have been closely watching because ing stages of the tournament let's hand over to the now for our special coverage.
2:15 pm
yes the world. continued coverage of the confederation cup and this is what it's all about it's the final it's underway thirty minutes played at a.b.c. chile no germany no thank all of our alongside me and it has let's be honest it's been all chilly so far if you hear me shout out to refuse to moyes diverted because we've got the monitor and i'm watching the game i'm a football man i love the screaming of the sport it has been all cheering from beginning of the cool experience coming to bear at the beginning of the game think of two boxers george foreman against muhammad ali mohamed ali on the ropes all of those years ago so everything that you want foreman had to offer in this case it's chilly throwing everything at germany stood the pressure and then he came out on top this is a very young inexperienced quality like you can german soil and now i'm just
2:16 pm
stunned to see that in the last couple of minutes after incredibly bright start where chile were pressing hard in the ball very high up the pitch peppering standing in the german goal with shots germany have taken a big deep breath every organized and they've gone again so we're going to start to see the game calm down around fifteen to twenty and this is the situation in all fairness that we saw in the group meeting between these two sides chile on top they dominated the got the goal on that occasion and this and this meeting germany have managed to withstand do you think we'll see them now growing confidence and grow in energy levels very difficult over ninety eight football match to express to people who haven't played at this kind of while time level you can go into the compressed memory hole lots of teams do it in world football possibly with little message i think of liverpool and the european club put the moment trying to do the same at manchester city and other countries across the other teams across the continent price toy hauler. and then you basically bludgeon your opponents into submission
2:17 pm
she have tried to do that but the problem me you come up dude up annoying to me to unsustainable like human beings are not robots so with that must point that must be why the chilly out in the first ten games they might well get cool tight at the back end of the game and that's where some of these young home great german players probably one of the top posting to change might well when this came from and this would have been a very exciting first opening thirteen fifteen minutes or so for the chilly fans in particular have been very vocal singing an awful lot they believe in their team has found out what the atmosphere is like in the funds and here in st petersburg our state party chair is in the mix what's it like a. hi there guys yes as you can see we are definitely in the mix but when we first started out about half an hour ago it is filling up nicely here plenty of fans the atmosphere is quite tense and pretty partisan actually as we've seen play on turds plenty of chili fans and the occasional jerry found but one area where you stephanie
2:18 pm
a bit more mixed was when they were face paint saying look it's when they're having germany flags and she likes painted on their face their arms and everything else and also people been playing table full but now it's all down to the ten spirits oh i think there's a bit of a chance going on behind me and sent me a lot of the local beer is flowing as well so she bowed to the atmosphere tense though it is now what's a goal is scored and a few more drinks have been sunk the get even more lively here in the fans i need to be just back. to many thanks kate for gold does go and make sure you take shelter is nothing worse than beer flying over your head and spending for the rest to be made from the fans on to the stadium you know neil's been meeting fans just outside the something big stadium where the game is now of course in full swing here's what he told us earlier. i've been speaking to a number of soldiers you know got a lot of german style girl at the beginning of the tournaments just they do and there was they couldn't even run the world cup straight for europe each other tips you don't really need to. federation's cup today not so for change the people i've
2:19 pm
been speaking to say we want to tick off the box it's a young team but it's a good team a lot for charity and fun so i've seen twelfth oyster so i think of trouble from the show you know it's a long way a lot of experience so it just goes to show they're fully behind their team they've just won the copa america for the second straight time so the funds are here on their expecting a lot of from the likes of sunshine is a doll i've just been really good lawyer at the press center as well you know but oh he'll bump into there after mill your faces one of whom was somebody i've talked about for a long time in my previous job as a sports center at the woods. she's a double gold medal medalist multiple world champion in the pole vault and i got a few minutes with you let's take a listen to watch tell me. first of all your thoughts on how russia has welcomed the world for the twenty seventeen confederations cup well i think we host a one on their very high level and they really hold it all fun. and believe all
2:20 pm
come to move will keep. till the next here and they will surprise them more and for the world championships what one of the things going into the tournament there are a lot of scare stories would russia be able to host a tournament of this size the press a lot of the western pressure seeing russia has welcomed the world don't well people are writing great stories about it how happy how satisfied are you without reaction from the press not just the fans here well of course your leg tractions from the press because it's important. to world to what you know who we are and what we are doing here and when they speak in a would do a bad for us had to be good to have meant and of course that would lead to some three hundred so. minutes cervical minutes to the ever seen and very welcome everyone in the country and really every look forward to provide the best will to jump in ships two thousand one hundred and just a word by phil. legacy what what russia leaves behind here when it comes to
2:21 pm
confederations on the world cup how important are looking at a beautiful stadium here lots of new buildings infrastructure the importance of the legacy the importance of what russia lease behind after these events well of course . they will temper ships it gives as the huge push for development we will develop football in our country here more than it was before because now we have a parts you need to have such a beautiful stadium as you mentioned before of course of course we will grow up our football players throw from young so we create their new football schools so they didn't have that to be didn't have before because if you've never had there they will turn to shit so of course for development of football it's a huge. huge cheer task but let's see and now all the infrastructure survey will help us in that and i'll just leave you with a thought but she only infantino the face for president said speaking about russia
2:22 pm
hosting the games in response to how well russia has got it he said well russia we're supposed to be bob hope so if every tournament is like this i don't care how bought it is if it continues to be hosted like this so that it's words of praise from the fake president himself. you can not turn your back on the action for a moment we've had a goal it's been chilly chilly chilly although i am not i don't go about like this and gentlemen is why i'm here because chilly of color on the blocks the experience it is that cup final time thing because of the trophies and everyone in south america but do not discount the human germany team and. one month uselessness if you don't cloud your bravo the hero of course of the semifinal he loses the boat and ends up. quite simply topping the second you could go quote from principle we often launch tindall to get the third goal to go level with. want to prove. you know it's pretty chilly you know and you know one percent of the good player has
2:23 pm
been to make one opportunity for a good young player to get to you and. sucker punch germany on the ropes they come out with a big swing and they have connect it's incredible that we have a game on our hands because chile not the door for the first fifteen twenty minutes they have been bought for the better team germany's goal has led to a real charmed life but now germany have taken the lead chile have to come out even more the best thing for the guys because both teams will have a really good go and that's what we really wanted was the tournament is really gone without a hiccup so far and all it needed the cherry on the cake was an early goal an exciting find with garnett's and like you never ever discount the germans and bring to some the tournament where you look at them and think how they got to the semi final have they got to a final but they keep on doing keep producing top quality players gives the germans the lead after about one pool to fifteen minutes and i said that the tournament is gone without a hiccup without a problem so we've got the perspective of
2:24 pm
a kid and bending his balls ready for the guardian to get his take on. kevin you've been covering the torch first the what is it you're looking for on your field trip to show off a really great time very enjoyable yeah there was a lot of concern among foreign fans about whether russia was ready and generally you know whether russia was a safe place to count but from every outspoken to it's passed with flying colors have you enjoyed it because we've been here filming all of you here the first time in a long and seeing the changes in russia boiling. the usual suspects coffee shops and big department stores a chance to have a lot since i first came in fifteen years ago we surprised you so yeah i was this is my third time in russia and i think that i think for me it's done a great job make it more accessible for fun fans from the airport signage the friendly volunteers have been really impressed by the volunteers actually done a great job always very accessible and willing to help out. i don't want to
2:25 pm
overstate how great things are going nowhere is perfect there must be something you feel could be improved but you know i mean it is a rehearsal essentially for the world cup what more can be done yeah exactly i think the crowds are a little disappointing that's not entirely unexpected this is not a big you know he's not a huge tournament we're going to get their fans coming in their millions but that was fear in the group stages was disappointing and i really hope tonight in st petersburg we see a packed stadium i think the big question for the hosts and for the local the i think media is are the less the city's lesser it has a population and some are a serious matter in but it's actually very ready but i'll certainly be telling all of my friends and colleagues back hard that you know next year two thousand and ten world cup is going to be a really fantastic one. so we still will know to germany surely continuing to press the coming very close germany still in danger on the break i would assume stand guaranteed more goals what will happen now is that the camel settle down a little bit you'll see want to defend chile about lots of opportunities but i need
2:26 pm
to be very careful every time i commit more than six or seven bodies into the german home as was proven with the german goal the counter-attack in football is very very important in germany use it very well i'm really enjoying the start of this game i'm sure the six thousand fans are in the arena and of course we'll bring you a bridge as we go through the village find out how it's going see you next. it's . possible the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live there or is it. crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life and i'm a little bit before this on the celestial was such
2:27 pm
a traditional story some knowledge i am somebody else you've done as we've done. a school but there's a lot while the city has tried desperately not to collapse all powerful corporations collect the profit of. the supper will probably globe on the dole coffee cup at home in the bushes up the on saabs knock up the supposed to mean a. good. life. is a tourist phobia will fail fall into an identity. plundered
2:28 pm
welcome to well to part with much of the syrian of war the iranian air of consensus has played handsomely into israel's hands and that is until the friends of syria group imploded from within with turkey and qatar now being more open in their defiance of the saudis and the americans found growing ever more unpredictable what does it leave israel well to discuss that i'm now joined by golan chair one of israel's senior peace negotiators mr sharon is such an order such a pleasure to have you on the show thank you very much for your time i thank you
2:29 pm
now it's believed that israel has largely stayed out of the syrian war even though occasionally it did conduct airstrikes as well as had some assist them assistance program going on to how the government groups operating in and around the golan heights what is your sense about this conflict where is it heading now well it seems that the conflict this terrible tragic bloodshed is moving slowly towards some kind of subsided arrangement and israel has been very consistent since the outset of this conflict it does not intervene in this internal tragedy we've been on the sidelines since the outset as you know except for one thing and this is treating the war wounded over.
