thank. you very well. president mulls his public refusal to curb his power will also spend constitutional changes further infuriated it should the opposition reject his call for talks and promises more protests on friday. the multi-billion dollar mega some through project finally breaks ground the pipeline into directly such as why europe's appetite for gas. and the china and india face off in the scramble for the world's resources of the south china sea building up their military and throwing accusations to stake their claim.
7:01 am
they're watching our t.v. live from moscow with me to say new protests expected to engulf the egyptian capital with president morsi as much anticipated state address failing to quote public anger the opposition is disappointed with morsi his refusal to resign to the disputed draft constitution and is calling for it israel is a final ultimatum to the country's leader car obeys reportable true an hour to his time boxen are following developments for us president mohamed morsi basically stuck by his decisions he said in his speech he said this constitution that duration which is very contentious very people described it as a power grab was essential basically in the transition period to democracy and very important protecting the constituent assembly which drafted the constitution so that we get to this point where we're going to have a referendum on the constitution next week he also blamed third parties for the violence that we saw on the streets. in cairo on wednesday between anti and pro
7:02 am
brotherhood supporters he said that third parties backed by foreign funding had infiltrated the groups and caused the violence and he blames us some opposition groups he said those serving the remnants of the former regime to overthrow his dismissed authority and basically rejected any use of violence in the form of protesting however he did call for dialogue and he asked opposition forces to meet him on saturday the eight to december to talk through some of the points of they have with this constitution the coalition of opposition forces who are running a sit in into her square the national revolution front issued a statement saying that they would not have dialogue with the president until he rescinds his decree thousands gathered at the presidential palace in opposition to president morsi is decision my colleague tom barton who was there on the scene and has this report some of the protesters behind me are trying to move the barricades that have been put up by the army in front of the presidential palace in cairo
7:03 am
a very tense stand off a fairly large crowd here yes it was just a child seeing us live in such as we watched the downfall of the regime calling or see the new. egyptian president mohamed morsy supporters was here in the day over all the other side. and there was this it was a standoff between pro and anti mohamed morsi protesters and some of the country's top judges and the opposition like the people here on one side very much against i want to see if they say doesn't provide your rights for minorities and women in a no vote need to tie the political situation is a very trying dockage the fear the violence we saw last night could be repeated more despite the army and the security services best efforts. and sort of uniting the nation mohamed more. sees address seems to have divided it even further but dr
7:04 am
walid for us a counterterrorism adviser to the u.s. congress says that despite the opposition's determination to make morsi back down he has a strong chance of keeping the new powers he's handed himself but the country is clearly split but mr morsi is strong because he has many institutions under his control the parliament the presidency the upper layer of the army now has replaced many officers in his calculations on december the fifteenth he will win because the most organized force now in egypt at least for the next few months is the muslim brotherhood and their allies the salafist they've gotten a majority in the parliament with allies of course we've got the president elected with allies and now some of his allies have abandoned him but they don't have the strength to organize and reach out to citizens the way the muslim brotherhood have so this looks like a recipe for a long trial civil uprising against the government i am not sure that this is going
7:05 am
to go immediately into what people think could be a civil war on less acts of violence are going to continue day after day and that's what she was concerned about the syrian rebels have declared the country's main international airport a military zone warning civilians in airlines they approach at their own risk the u.s. is concerned a rebel breakthroughs could force the government into a chemical attack something the white house says would trigger foreign intervention washington reportedly believes that president assad is preparing to use chemical weapons and as artie's granted he can reports allegations could be all it takes. u.s. officials said intelligence agencies have detected that assad's government has been preparing its chemical weapons stockpiles for possible use the obama administration's message to syria the u.s. is ready to act if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable there will be consequences. there
7:06 am
will be consequences we have sent a an unmistakable message that this would cross a red line how does america the media quickly picked up on the alarming news of the syrian government's alleged plans citing secret intelligence for fox news confirms that syrian troops now have the deadly nerve agent sarin gas weaponized and at the ready the syrian government flatly denied the possibility saying it would not use such weapons against its people. we would not commit suicide we fear there's a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in syria by these countries during creasing pressure syria. the syrian government sure knows that if they use chemical weapons he would give nato and some of their arab neighbors who are itching to intervene in syria the green light to go ahead with their plans damascus itself says it would be suicidal for them to do so but with the fear and the hype building
7:07 am
up over the use of chemical weapons against civilians in syria it seems the u.s. might be preparing grounds to jump the gun on this one the jumping the gun scenario is not new for the u.s. almost twenty years ago the bush administration had confidently presented false evidence to invade iraq america's cited bogus intelligence on saddam hussein's chemical weapons that never existed the invasion triggered a civil war that killed more than one hundred thousand innocent iraqis and years later all washington had to say about this was the president thought it was correct congress thought it was of course i regret that it turned out a lot of it was wrong in the run up to the iraq invasion the us media was instrumental in selling the case to the public the congress never. ever present ever of weapons of mass destruction all came from tony blair. bush who writes now that the u.s. has drawn a red line on syria it has made it clear it's ready to take action but how i'm not
7:08 am
going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of. a credible evidence that the assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people but suffice it to say we are certainly planning to. take action if that eventuality were to occur to american warships are already near the syrian coast with some ten thousand. u.s. marines and dozens of fighter jets on board on top of that nato is sending american german and dutch batteries of patriot anti-aircraft missiles to turkey's border with syria meaning hundreds more u.s. and european troops will be deployed to the frontier nato says deploying patriot missiles along syria's borders is a defensive step to prevent syria from attacking turkey i don't think there's any requirement whatsoever for patriot batteries on the ground in turkey again the
7:09 am
patriot missiles are designed to really protect primarily against incoming fire ballistic missiles or aircraft the syrians are not going to attack the turks the turks of the most powerful military establishment in the region the largest army in nato and intervention in syria will be as bad if not worse than what we experienced in iraq the pentagon said they would need seventy five thousand troops to secure syria's weapons of mass destruction the question on everyone's mind is are they seriously considering that kind of a mess of intervention because that could mean another you rock coming soon an invasion that could be followed by years of bloody civil war in washington i'm going to check out. instead of a searing warnings for the syrian government to the international community should be concerned about. is using chemical weapons that's the view of middle east expert tough week. i don't see the regime style is the style that will likely use the chemical weapons against his people and how
7:10 am
however when it comes to the jihadists attacking him. in the last moments you never know what can happen again this jihad this what is important to mention a vital issue here the jihadists are even more dangerous if they got this chemical weapons in their head so if you are told that the regime may use this chemical weapons of possibility that the jihadist will use it against their opponents will be much much more that you have this have no problem to behead people alive you deal with people like bin ladin and the radicals of al qaida who have no his it is to use any form of wilpon to really like control any place we religious believes in ideology. and there's i'm very find evidence suggesting that mt us our forces may have been even seeking to launch a chemical attack of their own energy dot com we have a video where an alleged rebel fighter uses
7:11 am
a deadly gas on animals promising to do the same to government supportive. construction of the ambitions multi-billion dollar south stream pipeline is finally about to start the project is a joint project involving europe's biggest energy giants and the russians a gas pump straight to the continent in a question of our report. also on the school's winter day in may not sim like it but this beach is a gateway to fun and sun the summer when you russians during their holidays and now this place will also become a gateway for russian gas into europe this day marks the start of the construction of one of the most ambitious answer to the expanse of energy supply systems on earth the south korean pipeline will go directly through the black sea to bulgaria and on to greece italy and austria the project was dreamed up on to the idea the
7:12 am
more the merrier in other words of the mopani the more secure the delivery to customers will be now it's a need that arose from transit countries ukraine and particular destructive deliveries on a number of occasions and the past fifty percent of the pipeline will be owned by russian energy giant gazprom the rest of it with its leave france and germany however may need to europa question whether this project is if it needed critics say that a whopping twenty billion dollars cost for a pipeline is way too much especially in current times of economic recession but it seems these fears are not enough to stop a project like this was the big question will be hoping the only choppy waters they face of are on the very seat they will be going directly under. so they had this india is ready to flex its muscles in the south china sea and as a country prepares to stake its claim float here joyland gets filled i guess i'm

providing beijing plus. the u.s. senate received some books had medicine from moscow in response to his decision to slap the travel ban on russians thank you so great human rights that send other international stories after a short break. a forty nine year old southern california man was thrown in president charles with possessing materials to make explosive device all because of his rather unusual wristwatch despite the bomb squad saying that his watch was not a weapon here rated custody for twenty four hours it was charged with the crime anyways a spokesman for the el meter county sheriff's department said that the man's watch had all the components to make an improvised explosive device minus the explosive
7:14 am
material you know having a lighter in your pocket is also everything you need to self explosion minus the gun powder but before we make a victim out of this watch where i have to point out one thing the watch she was wearing was designed to look like some sort of bomb with fuses and wires and switches so who's more idiotic someone who wears a device that looks like a bomb on an airplane or a government who can fix someone for having the components of a bomb without that bit of the bomb that makes a blow up i'd say both are pretty dumb but that's just my opinion.
7:15 am

oil and gas exploration efforts as r.t. as you go to peace can offer imports if they can settle the dispute amicably the authors who are ready to take full advantage. as china and india rise economically their military muscles are growing as well both need energy to keep that kind of growth going and that may be putting the two asian giants on a collision course because of the mess that nationalism the indian government cannot afford to be seem to be weak in dealing with china obviously a higher power with government popular over two hundred billion barrels of oil and large amounts of natural gas that's more than the vast majority of the world's energy rich nations have all hidden under the south china sea china claims most of the territory for itself but india has also managed to get access by buying a stake in a vietnamese gas field shortly after hanoi accuse chinese boat of sandwich dodging
7:17 am
exploration india warned it's ready to use force to defend its interests hopefully as i said that should not be leading to a longer term conflict but you know it's it's you know the inevitable because both these countries now large and visions of becoming global actors and players both china and india have been pumping billions of u.s. dollars into their armies and navies holding drills on a regular basis and beijing has also announced its police will soon start to board and inspect foreign vessels to have vast oil reserves in the south china sea are just too big of a cash for neither china or india to pass out what they really want to accomplish between the two economic power houses so it's a really a game that neither can win the two asian giants can't afford any weaknesses and that would make it easier for other countries to take a bite of the vast resources the u.s. has long been increasing its economic and military presence in the region this in
7:18 am
yes there west's trying to take this expansion bible in their jana in terms of the last. four goals that the last thing that they want is a military clash so if the two eastern powerhouses can share nicely they catch me they will go to some other players already prowling on the sidelines you got this going all of our team. so there are more stories to catch up with the online including russia's prime minister gets a grilling from journalists yesterday face questions on the infamous pussy riot case current defense ministry scandal and allegations of political screws not being i turned to our to dot com to find out what the by minister had to say. the writers of olive petition inspired some bizarre ideas in america one bright spot collecting signatures for the u.s. government to build a village they think should. russia

investing in the united states now this move was met with a furious response here in moscow with the russian foreign ministry saying publicly that it is nothing quote but a vindictive desire to counter russia in world affairs it is quote perplexing and propose to hear human rights complaints from the united states where torture and kidnappings are illegal in the twenty first century they went on to tweet that quote apparently washington has forgotten what year it is and still thinks the cold war is going on the u.s. decision to impose visa and financial sanctions on certain russian citizens is like something out of the theater of the absurd russian foreign minister say sergey lavrov had said that in response russia will be imposing a similar travel ban against american officials accused of human rights violations now we know that this could have been of course a more joyous day for the two countries done with miscast was tacked on to the

repeal of the so-called jackson that a amendment to this has was imposed in the one nine hundred seventy s. and effectively was a result of the cold war but now that russian trade relations are normalized we do have this new diplomatic spat over the magnitsky act now the reaction in europe to this has been quite mixed we heard from two former british foreign secretaries who have called for a similar ban to be imposed in the u.k. meanwhile the french ambassador here in moscow had said that his country is not going to be following suit with that kind of legislation so again mixed reaction but certainly a lot of theory and. feelings between the two former cold were those the united states and moscow. now some other news of from around the globe five people have been taken to hospital they want me to hide tsunami hit the me argue province in japan it was triggered by a seven point three magnitude earthquake that struck the eastern coast with aftershocks felt as far away as the capital tokyo but tsunami alert has now been

thousands of kilometers of unspoiled countryside make up an area where it's still possible to live off the land such spectacular scenery makes it a paradise for fisherman and provides a business opportunity for hunters there are defined hunting seasons in russian but lax enforcement means many animals are killed out of a lot of times which can leave young animals orphaned and unable to survive. the heart of chisti less forest provides a sanctuary for the most famous beasts in russia it's home to a group who rescue often bear cubs and raise them when they're old enough to fend for themselves the cubs a target taken to a remote location and released back into the wild but it's not just bears who find a haven here this is wolf island here wolf pups who've been captured by hunters or bought from zoos have a second chance at life and conservationists have a unique opportunity to observe them these walls are all around four months old and they'll stay in this area for up to three years then most will go back to the wild
7:26 am
for good just viewing them from the car was an experience in itself but then after a bit of a bumpy ride came an opportunity i just couldn't pass up and this is where i was hoping for when i heard i was coming to a place called. a chance to get close and personal with the locals and it's these guys are going to act as foster parents for the next generation will come here using the older walls as surrogate parents has already proved a successful technique. every year i place infant wolves with one year old wolf cubs whose parental instinct is totally shaped and they take them as their own cubs it's going to continue to take time and money to rehabilitate the wolf reputation in russia. but the keepers here hope their research and dedication will mean the oil and remains a place where visitors can truly understand the cool of the wild. to
