7:02 pm
evening was really to ensure that the constitution was drafted and put through referendum so the president's main aim really is they say how this constitution puts in place how he reacts to the to the boycott by the opposition forces i guess in there or not is a huge boycotts nationwide or whether it is not large enough to make an impact behind me the republican guards have had tanks stationed outside the presidential palace they've also built a twelve foot concrete barricades however the protesters on friday in quite extraordinary scenes century overwhelm the republican guards and pushed through in front of the presidential gates where they are now people on the streets of the republican guard essentially stepped aside and so many leading many to believe the military perhaps not backing morsi to the same extent that he is saying they are he has called for them to secure the streets there are fears the violence will escalate this bloody scenes on wednesday when rival groups clashed here just at the

presidential palace between pro brotherhood pro presidential supporters and protest is leaving at least seven dead at the national salvation front themselves in this press conference said this referendum will really just simply increase division in the country and possibly to further violence as these protest groups maintain that positions so definitely the military may well we may see more time on the streets here in the. egypt has this is the crisis the pain is the u.s. has made a no comment on egypt draft constitution that's despite the document coming in for criticism for undermining basic freedoms to political analyst f. william engdahl says washington is secretly supporting the muslim brotherhood to turn egypt into an islamic dictatorship the whole decree was a saint to begin with so allow the president through. the proposed new castle to chanelle on the referendum for the fifteenth of december not given the opposition and the liberal groups and second persons or time to really debate it openly in the country so that voters have an informed choice for coptic christian groups are

threatened if the book brotherhood gets its constitution and imposing sharia law for. other groups of the muslims for example sufi their places of worship are under attack in egypt and likely will be increasing it so this is probably one of the most major earth here in intelligence projects above the last fifty years and since the us government support of the muslim brotherhood to create islamic fascist regime you want to use that term across the islamic world across the muslim world from afghanistan down through turkey into saudi arabia qatar and of course egypt. syria's rebels have joined forces under one military command which they hope will unite diverse groups in the western backed struggle against president assad this past week the international community again voiced fears that the syrian government could deploy chemical weapons to defeat opposition fighters something damascus
7:05 pm
tonight going to touch you can look at whether the chemical arsenal is a real threat or a pretext for 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 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
7:06 pm
a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in syria by these countries they're doing creasing pressure 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 the meskins 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 us might be preparing grounds to jump the gun on this one the jumping the gun scenario is not new for the us almost twenty years ago the bush administration confidently presented false evidence to invade iraq we have an descriptions of biological weapons factories on wheels and on rails 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
7:07 pm
congress thought it was worth it 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 had any proof ever present ever of weapons of mass destruction all came from tony blair to the bush and congress 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 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 or already near the syrian coast with some. one thousand u.s. marines and dozens of fighter jets on board on top of that nato is sending american
7:08 pm
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 theater ballistic missiles or aircraft the syrians are not going to attack the turks the turks have 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
7:09 pm
invasion that could be followed by years of bloody civil war in washington i'm going to check on. syria in a political activist dr he is on the dollar if the international community is worried about a chemical attack in syria they should look to the rebels not the government. recently there have been some troubling videos that we have seen on you tube and some other reports of of the jihadist groups in northern syria assessing some chemical materials with the name of a turkish company on them and the background there was a music playing with this chance it's very worrying they were conducting some experiments on the rabbit said difficult to verify but if it is not a bluff then this is this is very very worrying because judging by the effect of this gas it is a convulsing so it's it's a it's a nerve agent and and this is a dangerous development perhaps if you look also at the fact that the united states
7:10 pm
has recently started listing parts of the syrian armed opposition all of the armed opposition in syria as terrorist organizations that say something that probably aware that their part of the of the armed opposition in syria and probably the the most powerful part of the armed opposition who are the nasr front probably aren't possession of said such materials and probably are planning to use them as a threat and so i think the danger is that the the west is aware of such materials in syria but at the same time it's going to be used against the syrian government as a pretext for intervention. britain is now facing five more years of austerity. the treasury chief insists that cutbacks will help the country's a struggling economy find out the details later this hour. also after the break hamas about to liberate palestinian lands inch by inch as israel refuses to abandon
