2:01 am
this is r.t. coming to live from moscow eleven am and the russian capital i'm marina joshie welcome to the program now idjit president has scrapped the decree that gave him sweeping new powers and effectively put him above the law of the land but a referendum on the controversial draft constitution is still scheduled for next week for the latest on these developments we're going now talk to bill troops based in cairo so bell does mohamed morsi is move come as a surprise to gyptian and how is the opposition reacting to this. it does come as a bit of a surprise at the moment as people really think you know the president wouldn't move on his stance against the opposition forces demands yesterday and today they had a meeting which was dubbed the national dialogue meeting between political party leaders the president and his cabinet notably some of the key open. the national salvation
2:02 am
front that are behind the protests and sit in the last few weeks and not present the results of the controversial constitution that duration would be revoked which of course is president morsi sweeping powers which is part of one of the demands of the opposition forces and widely seen as a good move however they are rendered on the constitution which the opposition forces see to be illegitimate as it was drafted by the curation consent to assembly would go ahead on the fifteenth and this is why the problem lies the opposition forces i replied yesterday saying that the results of the b. thing were meaningless as the president hasn't seen to move forward with that demand against this referendum or the group said that it was really just another form of deception this comes after the minute she stepped up security around the presidential palace behind me in the last two days that you see to statement yesterday saying that they were calling for dialogue and this was the only way to get the nation out of its crisis implying that perhaps they were willing to take
2:03 am
a role in the ongoing situation in egypt. well over the past week we have seen people protesting in the streets we have seen. demonstrations and more city administrations and we've seen a divide in the society there so could this move by morsi actually u.-turn break the deadlock between the government and the opposition. yet to be seen at the moment i mean the opposition forces as i mentioned the salvation front have said they will continue to protest against this referendum that to expect more people on the streets in the coming days as you mentioned we've seen quite a lot of violence on the streets since this one second of november when the content of that decree was announced by the president as rival groups have met in class which is led to the deaths of at least seven people on wednesday we have yet to see really what will happen in the in the coming future but the president keeps by this referendum and i'm sure that the opposition forces won't move to really even though
2:04 am
we had this development yesterday at this meeting they're still looking at a divided egypt a political deadlock. all right bill thanks very much indeed for bringing us this update live from cairo. now was the opposition and willing to back down some observers say president morsi is facing and new revolution that could spiral into civil war. he feels that if the vote goes and you get more sure once as you get that constitution passed. and i think the opposition knows that you can do that there are forward they want to stop that but i do want to protest there is a leadership that was once here and. they want to start the process all over again from syria actually if they want a new election maybe one new parliament and in their case the change goes away and new constitution so what are you going to do you're going to try to kick
2:05 am
them out of power if you try to change kidnaps after. this a civil war and risk being the islamists into the streets as long as population in general makes a. i don't think or. so where it's a very very dangerous situation it's by once achieved. what concerns rising in the west now the syrian regime may use its huge arsenal of chemical weapons and now there are troubling video appeared earlier this week on the web it shows what is claimed to be chemical weapons being used on the lab ravitz after the test a masked man then threatens to use the poison on syrian civilians all of this comes as rebel groups from across syria are uniting under one command and the latest western backed efforts to topple president bashar asad artie's guided to count looks into whether all the chemical fears of the west are really
2:06 am
a preview to foreign intervention. 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 will be consequences we have sent a unmistakable message that this would cross a red line next how does america the media quickly picked up on the alarming news of the syrian government's alleged planes citing the 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
2:07 am
a pretext for any subsequent interventions in syria by these countries during creasing pressure on syria. the syrian government sure knows that if they use chemical weapons it 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 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 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
2:08 am
a lot of it was wrong in the run up to the iraq invasion to us media was instrumental in selling the case to the public the congress never had any proof ever present ever of weapons of mass destruction all came from tony blair and bush are right 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 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
2:09 am
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 syrian 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 patriot missiles are designed to really protect primarily against incoming fire ballistic missiles to recruit the syrians or not to 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 and the invasion that could be followed by years of bloody civil war in washington i'm

a huge number of settlements across the west bank on the circular roads and of course the problems of east jerusalem suggest. it's quite difficult to achieve it unless there's a real will to withdraw the. public starting to develop and i don't see that will actually with netanyahu if he can't even rely on governments to basically quite sympathetic to israel and israel's claims then he's losing out big time all around the world and he just needs to wake up i think the washington support will wane very quickly obama has been reelected and a reluctant president into a second most powerful think who might do well to remember that he also very much involved in the internal politics of the usa during the election campaign of that contravene did himself very much the administration the movement around the world for power stone for palestinian people is unprecedented should wake up and recognize that. belgium is on high terrorist alert as we report online that's out
