again flared up. these are the images the world is seeing from the streets of canada. trying to corporations rule today. the day of rage the syrian opposition calls for more protests while the u.s. urges sanctions over the crackdown but as the uprising spread it's iran that could be next in line. the world's biggest oil producer feels the petrol rush it because exports to keep the fuel running at home. a life behind bars on the cards for a russian pilot after the u.s. finds him guilty of conspiring to smuggle drugs his defense insists there are critical flaws in the conviction.
6:01 am
two pm in moscow i match reza good to have you with us here on r t our top story syria's opposition is planning a day of rage after friday prayers in the face of violent crackdowns on protesters the u.s. is calling for sanctions against syria blaming president assad for turning to iran in a way they could unite the two against israel washington's closest ally in the region or he's really delusional looks at the potential for the arab uprisings to spread further east. some like it hot but this spring things have heated up perhaps too much in the arab world is ips libya now syria more than african region and the middle east and often brutal civil wars with the western powers playing an important hand some believe this won't start anytime soon so who is next in line for the greater evil in the region the answer may lie on the surface. that
6:02 am
president assad is disingenuously blaming outsiders while at the same time seeking a rainy in assistance in repressing syria's citizens this need to be a thinly veiled hint it's where exactly the united states is looking to get involved i think iran has been targeted for some time now and if you watch the propaganda about syria washington is now claiming. iran is helping syria oppress protesters which different about syria. protesters in both cases really know for a fact. the united states government was supporting our position groups and so only those two countries where washington has an interest in going to t.v. ron has been a long standing alliance with syria in this strategically important region right
6:03 am
next to iran's arch nemesis israel syria syria isn't the same as libya geopolitically we've always realized that syria is iran's springboard in its fight against israel this is why it will eventually make a powerful signature to impact on iran's positions this brings us back to the question what country will follow syria events in syria progress according to the libyan scenario we will probably see a similar development in iran unfortunately that is iran will repeat a syrian scenario iranian ships have dropped anchor in syrian ports. enormous proximity to tel aviv but damascus crippled by a crisis iran may lose its footing in the region this is again a continuation of the idea that you use the international machinery to achieve your national objectives under the pretext that you are actually trying to protect human rights should the u.s. and its allies decide to go through with
6:04 am
a habit of meddling in aiding revolutionary forces in the region the result may be catastrophic that if there is foreign intervention in syria yes iran's intervention in response that is a definite and very real possibility just as much as it interfered in iraq when the u.s. invaded that country and if suspicions proved true the world may be in for an entirely different ballgame if iran in the u.s. get involved in the real hunt confrontation. e.u. officials are meeting later in brussels to discuss sanctions against the syrian regime a former belgian deputy speaker says any sort of international action might work in the long run but europe's main aim should be to stop supplying weapons to syria. this is not a regime that's going to feel the pressure of sanctions on the contrary he did the question is why so fast now after we see that the libya it's a mess in libya why do it again if this is about human rights or about them about
6:05 am
the massacres why not start with the most cruel medieval regime in the arab region saudi arabia if this is about preventing massacres one will do something about the illegal occupation of palestine i mean the e.u. could do so much for example to stop supporting these. in the first place let's not forget these dictatorships are suppressing their own people. with the support that the arms of their boat from europe i mean let's stop doing that in the first place of course that is not going to have a short term impact on things but maybe this might be a time for reflection over what we have been doing for the last forty fifty years in the middle east and in the north africa recent sanctions can work yes in the long run like if we see what happened with apartheid in south africa. yemen's president has been speaking with our ears the standoff in his country gets even more entrenched demonstrators continue to madding his immediate resignation despite
