tv   Cross Talk  RT  July 12, 2021 9:30am-10:00am EDT

9:30 am
to discuss these issues and more, i'm joined by my guess. better gaming in plymouth. he's to enter turned bounder of 21st century wire dot com and, and also we have going diesel. and he is a professor at the university of southeastern norway as well as the author of the new book, re power politics in the 4th industrial revolution, or a gentleman, cross talk rules and effect. that means you can jump anytime you want. so i always appreciate it, 3. ok, let's go to hospital 1st. glen, you know, american media is obsessed about the withdrawal of afghanistan. how it got to this point who's to blame. but very few people actually thinking about the future except for maybe the drifters that want to somehow profit from the post more environment having an aircraft outside the country prepared to leap in. but if necessarily, i mean this is, these are the people that don't want this the end. however, a lot of things are happening and it's been and they're not getting a lot of coverage. just recently the taliban visited russia. the russians obviously
9:31 am
are very concerned. what's going to happen next because the we have to spend and respect has been ask and stands borders. and of course, the metaphor of saigon is on a lot of people's minds. i don't know if it's over iraq, but people have to be prepared here because we have again, troops going across their border, leaving the country. that is obviously a security risk. so how is this going to be played out? because during the entire course of the history of cross thought, we have talked about how long this war has been going on here. and i've always said, and i hope i'm not wrong, the region has to take care of itself. and i think that's an opportunity. go ahead and no, i agree, and the us withdrawals very quickly. there's a vacuum left behind. it is obviously the challenges for neighbors because they're not going anywhere. and obviously as you mentioned yesterday is all of this, this, this could very easily be stabilized ventilation in the military and i'm more
9:32 am
instability. and so i think i have not gotten government to read explaining to projects. and again, they build, having the renewal of the civil war of the 90 s could be quite problematic something and obviously most goes quite concerned about it. but again, there's also some opportunities i would say because the u. s. strategy and it's all the centralization was to large extent, did the central nation read them from countries like russia and china. so this was with economic projects that everything was geared to in this direction. now, and this was consistent with the u. s. u. k. history of your asia, which has been brought to divide by the major powers. so the news coming out from china and russian, but even iran to smaller extent is the failure of the us natal condition in the sun while it's chris on the challenges. it also opens up so for today's military,
9:33 am
you're ation solutions. something that russia would support as well. this include most of the neighbors come from russia, china, iran, central asia, leaving india and the world integration of this great 3 ration region, which is a key project for the chinese russians to be complete without and it's coming down through economic coming to the and we are here in a chinese is interested in to push this trillion dollar bump enrolled initiative on something investments talking about. and i was obviously would welcome. and there's also other years for corporation. i would also just love the shanghai corporation organization, which is now forming us the main, an organization to organize the race which has all the main status. so russia, china, india, the central ations and ideally, would also bring in iran later on as full members. not just observer, and this could be of this institutional great mission. so again, this risks,
9:34 am
but there's also for tunic is to finally find the regional solution which just them based on connecting these countries instead of slipping them. you know, it's very interesting because if you, if you look at and take seriously some of the issues that the taliban had talked about over the years, they don't have ambitions outside of the boarders about them. however, there's a very important caviar here in the u. s. u, a back door continues to support the corrupt regime and war. they could change the, the facts on the ground because you're going to be that have government troops using the other side of the border. it's as a pain in, you know, how the conflict spill because of the taliban are going to continue their path. the power as it were. and you have these troops in going over the border. they may go and go after them,
9:35 am
which of course is the worst nightmare for the entire region. it seems to me it's still very and contingent in us is going to leave and i keep asking expert, what does it mean and what does the word finally leave me go ahead. yeah, there's a good question. what is leave mean? just look over to the situation in iraq, and you can see that even a us pull out could mean nato coming in or multinational force. and that's just moving the chess pieces around. because sensibly nato's controlled by the united states in the, in the u. k. effectively, in terms of the bulk of its forces and it's strategic direction. so for, i guess it's a big, it's a big problem. you know, is not an easy solution to it a, no, there's never been an easy solution for western powers or, or even your asian powers in balancing the situation of gas down for centuries. so right back to alexander the great, so running into the same similar situations in terms of geography. but you know,
9:36 am
the u. s. grand strategy. generally, if you look at the arc of the strategy over the last couple of administrations, it's to slowly pull out their hard assets out of places in the middle east, and then rely on what they call local enforcers in order to prosecute western us or, or largely corporate policy direction. and so who is that local enforcer for afghanistan is certainly can't be the afghan government in cobol or the afghan army because they'll fold like deck chairs on the titanic. you know, so it's pakistan would be that local enforcer. but that hasn't worked because they pump billions of dollars into, to fight counter you know, for counterterrorism funding in pakistan arguably is all probably the people believe the i s i is partly responsible for a lot of the terrorists activity and extremism and gun running and all sorts sorts
9:37 am
of things so that there's a huge amount of problems. i don't think there's an easy solution, but what happens in this situation where there is no easy solution as the opportunists will seize on business opportunities. afghans been a great money spinner for the military industrial complex, the global corporate transnational, corporate haven't been able to get us a stable foothold. so in the meantime, just make money off of the military situation. the price of heroin globally has plummeted. so, you know, that does benefit certain people in, in the pharmaceutical industry as well as on the black market. and just generally the malays of cities around the world. so is this, the, this was going to be long term, low intensity conflict in and out again. another $911.00 type narrative could be plastered on afghanistan and then they would come in again, full throttle in 10 years. i mean, so i don't think the prospects are great looking at it right now in terms of the
9:38 am
long historical picture. it particularly $1001.00 limited. and i keep using like a word here it's, it's a grid. i mean, this is really why a lot of pockets for people are all very long time and, and saying that is something that's been worried, but maybe have martin millen that had to be joined to stop. i mean, you basically crying and run a president biden, you know, what about children and women, you know, and all that. i mean, here's, here's a guy who's supposed to be in charge of the national security being said new, worried about the nation building. and i don't know if he's worried about his buddies making a whole lot of money like they have for decades. glenn, one of the things that is very interesting is that go back to your 1st stanza here . this is the real opportunity for russia and china, and then again player such as pakistan is pointed out here. but i mean if,
9:39 am
if there is a, if there is a solid consent of these large powers outside about san i think that gives reason. the hope here because they all see the back of the matter is the us it respected, but we have that get if that doesn't really affect, you know, i would say what happens when i get to spend affects the region greatly. and these be, these are real stakeholders here. i mean, what could be a 1st step here? because the russians have been very open as being a fair broker. they have but they have invited and talk to the television even though they have been in rushes game, a terrorist organization, when they're going the extra mile here. what, how is this going to affect the internal affairs of a company? because the russia can't be a guarantor of the government in control because it doesn't have the, the, the strength and the support in the country. go ahead. no, well obviously the vacuum will be filled by some states. i mentioned that i cannot
9:40 am
make, which were china, the main actor about the security field. obviously, ross, it's a key security provider, but what i was referred to then was the instability among those based on them then, especially tajikistan. and they will need to rely on the c s d, which is the regional, the russian lead military alliance. so, and this will create a greater demand for when you secured the institutions to feel the vacuum. but the difference from suggesting that to absorb assessment would be something closer. it's simply no chance at all that most would ever accept putting in a more what's on the ground in afghanistan. and either should, i think the lesson over the past 20 years has been that the piece was to fall in place of control. now, we'll have to, so obviously more schools would prefer power sharing government in couple rather than simply tell about taking over. however, if it takes over russia, it's not going to stand in this way and dictates what a new government should look like. it's simply gonna have to make it in place for
9:41 am
the best possible governments come into play and government is in place use the magic tools to help, but also the economic offers of corporations and simply begin to integrate this, this country into the ration region. so there's some problems about the issue of the social on their mind. the huge challenges and risk, especially if this are still logged into a huge, massive civil war. and now it's very like us to give across the borders. give it a last minute to you, patrick. here as the, as the foreign policy blog watches this unfold, have they learned any lessons from the last 20 years? go ahead. 40 seconds. i don't, i think it's worse for the you go, the younger these people are getting, you know, people like jake sullivan running. the white house is foreign policy. port leon, he's what 40 years old. what is, what does he know? the main problem? enough gas dance always going to be we're trying to impose
9:42 am
a western style democracy on was effectively an area that's been governed by tribal forms of government and tribal politics. and until they can bridge that gap and do that in a, in a good way for both sides, then i think you're going to have this constant friction. yeah, i think that i think the u. s. and western power should stop helping dennis then it might turn out better. will say, are gentlemen going to jump in here, we're going to go to a short break. and after that short break, we'll continue our discussion on some real stay with the ah the board over
9:43 am
the summer solutions where we focus on the solutions. not so much. the problem, stacy, right. we are joined by jeff booth author of the price of tomorrow. she won't fall soon, but he will thing a little slow letting them go. well the oh, i don't want to come a little to go see me when you have a week when you have
9:44 am
a meeting in the room initial, authentic steamy and the spelled on the one, let me know which finance was going to look at me and i'll start with you soon. this is just looking here. when you mentioned the illusion, this little thing going on on the, on the financial young moody illusion. but you least could, you could shoot it to the lower the with the the, the, the welcome
9:45 am
back across the top where all things considered peter la bell. this is the home edition remind you were discussing some real news. i okay, let's change gears gentlemen. let's talk about the, the tragic fate of julian salvage over the last week or so we've seen the b o j a case against killing a size collapse complete, where he collapsed. i mean, it is this, it is floating in mid air gentlemen. okay, though it, it hasn't changed the position of the d o j the u. s. government to try again to expedite jolena. they say their case against them was he hacked, he was a hacker this time, this was what made different from the in the previous ministration. this is the, there was an enforcement in iceland,
9:46 am
a gentleman that had known criminal history was committing crimes while he was working with the it is unclear if he was compensated mail. i'm on a terribly but there's obviously he was the key to they. the prosecution persecution of julian assigned. and so, and then on top of it, the element of desperation is seeping in the terms and conditions of his detainment in the united states where he might serve his term if convicted badger this smells of desperation, the case the case is collapsed. ok. and now they're trying to look for a way out to save face instead of just dropping this ridiculous bear in the 1st place. go ahead. no, you're right. it's all about. it's all about saving face. i don't think that they can save face in the long run. this is just the machine doing what the machine does . you know they're amazing that the federal government would, would pay a convicted felon to fabricate evidence for a federal case. and then, you know,
9:47 am
and this should cause it to collapse. i mean, the, but it's not because they're there on a mission. and the mission is it's about shutting down parts of the internet globally. this is already being done via silicon valley, but there's some loose ends to tie up independent portals. free press, stopping any real leaks from happening. that's really what we helix represents. are there so far down the road with julia signed with this? the sham of a process. it's always been the case of the missing case. ok. and now it's kind of obvious, but we're, we're so far down the road and now they're making promises that we're going to move it to us. you know, he'll be moved to australia and things like this and there's all sorts of other caviar that are put in. and it's quite clear that this is all an abrogation of due process. because, you know, you talk about these things. speaking like he's already been convicted basically. so there isn't that that should give you the signal. that's the dog whistle from
9:48 am
washington that he will, he will be extradited, he will be convicted. and then what they do after that in terms of shuffling them around, is anyone's guess. so i don't believe any guarantees made by the d o j because they can even keep an international treaty like, you know, the jcp or have that they work 2 years on. don't think that the keep any promises before the fact of what they're going to do to julius time. so there's never been a case. and, but unfortunately, i've sat through that trial in london for a week and it's just unbelievable how corrupt the system is geared against him. they have him locked down. they'd like to drag this out forever. and i'm sad to say they'd be happy if he didn't make it out of prison. that would just make things a lot easier for them to him. i mean, that's the strategy. obviously, you know, going also, you know, the d o j has act on it because it was actually recognize the,
9:49 am
the rolling of this very peculiar judge in the u. k. dealing with this case here is that ability massage work to be expedited. his faith in the, the american legal system in the prison system would be in question. and i think that it's obvious to anyone. but the, you know, to, to patrick's point here is that this is just to drag it out. i mean, this could, i mean, even if he were expedited, i mean the, the case itself could take a decade. it could take that long and considering the way the d o j at least previously is previewed case is that even during the sanchez lawyers wouldn't be able to see the evidence against him. a jury is up in the air, a judge. we determine what that is is valid. i mean, this is just a, i mean, calling it a tangle record is insulting. can go rooms. i mean, what kind of process is that?
9:50 am
i mean, he's doing this on should have no, they mean they certainly have no bait in the british legal system. jumping bail. oh my goodness, being and superman like that. so, i mean, it is an atrocity all the way around and you know, what the biggest route atrocity is, is that we're one of the only programs talking about this. there's nothing in the mainstream in the us about this. so i mean, this is, this is, this is a huge conspiracy of silence when the crime being committed in broad daylight. all this was recognized in early nineties that a paradox of having essentially a liberal empire that it will start to tear away at the domestic system. and again, this before comes an interesting or unique form of arthur and isms as correct to point out to demonstrates how the rule of law is being corrupted. so in a society based on the rule of law, the focus is on the integrity of the process. and not the outcome, even though the outcome of august would have been decided. but what we see here is that the decision is
9:51 am
a little been made to destroy us on which lake males have demonstrated that the legal process is to take them the weapon. but if they don't even need really conviction old and needed to drive on the court proceedings for eternity, and therefore just keeping the prison and again, it's important to us to walk back because it's eating away the principles and credibility of their legal system. keep in mind that this is the journalist, they arrested the you and demanded they should be released. the court, you court said denied extradition in january, and that's the point that correctly he witnessed recent. there was admitted to an advocate and accusations against the function yet now they're going to let's give the u. k, u s. government permission to appeal this is simply because to making all that assurances which let's be on, that's not going to be not really worth that much. and you know, even if you will be transferred after a while to say, doesn't get jeffrey in treatment in jail or he will even be allowed to go to
9:52 am
australia even if he, if they will take over the years and years. and they're correct. the media does not seem to care about this. if this was one of america, the others there is with gentlemen, there will be tanks and the media would not stop right about it. but some of the non issues and we're, where's the media? this is quite extraordinary. and no interest at all. really. this is quite amazing . yeah, i mean, glad i had you on recently we, when you were tried to explain to me with your great intellect, with my mind or intellect, trying to explain to me what rules based order is. how does the julian a sorry case fit in with the rules based order that we have secretary state blink and, you know, did his, you know, rules based order tour and then back i do within the u. k. what is the journalist day when, when julia found you in prison? so what are the rules based order? when it comes to the fate of julian authority,
9:53 am
the fate of journalism which is basically faded away, go ahead. i mean, what i'm getting at it was rank apostrophe, can you go ahead one? no, i agree. and again, this is where international law and the rules based on are obviously diverse because the rules based order gifts for the special privileges based on the so called the liberal complication. so it becomes a huge paradox at the end. but again, this thing with that are the reason why the media doesn't care because they did, they did like a founder previously when he revealed the bush crimes. then he was a special on the left. he was a bit of a hero. we were in the trump era, they then began to lend themselves very much against, but honestly, they were very much pro journalism and freedom journalism. every time from sense tweet about cnn. they were very much concerned about that title journalism, but this actually actual journalists to go to jail. that doesn't seem to be much
9:54 am
interest. and the reason is revealed a lot of the war crimes committed on their obama and also the embarrass clinton in 2016. they blamed funds to great extent for clinton losing and trump winning. and in addition, in the air rush gates, when the through the russian agent laid him, all the rules could be thrown out the window because now your agent, the russia, and it's not a journalist, there, wilson law don't apply and it's very dangerous place to be. so need to find a way of walking this back in the media should really go back there. may go. well, empire never says, sorry, patrick, let's remind our viewers what the alleged crime, the julian a so much committed. he revealed the war crimes of great powers, particularly of the united states. that's why he's sitting in prison now. and that's why they want him essentially to die in prison because he told the truth about war crimes committed by western powers back in his, his queen's counselors during the crown court hearings before the pandemic,
9:55 am
they dismantled the, the u. s. case just day by day just tore it to pieces. fitzgerald and somers and they did it annually. and the argument from the u. s. side from the, the extradition side in the u. s. had hired guns there. there argue was, well that argument doesn't have standing because this is curly about extradition and not about whether the charges have any merit or anything like that. so that was just kind of a pre, a preview of what you, you're going to see in a u. s. us national security court, but the main thing, the main part about all of this is in a democratic system. it doesn't matter what happens outside the courtroom in terms of the public conversation. and the press would normally lead that the press would elevate the issue. people would rally around that again, due process, rule of law,
9:56 am
all of that has been wiped away. that says little more about the state of democracy . in the democratic world, it's leading the rules based international order and in the rules based international order. you has the, the gold makes the rules or he has the most money makes the rules. but it's funny that when anthony lincoln tried to pull the rules based card with china at that summit, alaska, china reminded anthony blinking, who has the gold, apparently, because they didn't show any respect to the u. s. is shenanigans summit. but so it is very worrying because this is, that is a sunset moment for, for democracy. and the assange case, it's just is a touchstone of, of that process here. when this is all about is they may never want another julian ever to happen again. 2020 seconds go ahead. yeah, yeah, no,
9:57 am
absolutely. and he is achieving incredible status amongst activists and people who really believe in the free press and he's become a real icon is the question is, can more people rally around this issue? what, what will that, what would, what would take for that to happen? that's the big question is looming, and if it doesn't happen, what does that mean for democracy and constitutional forms of government going forward? a lot of you know what, i think i get them off low and implement. what i think be worth watching if you are the next time, remember the ah ah, is your media a reflection of reality? the in
9:58 am
a world transformed what will make you feel safe. tyson lation community, are you going the right way or are you being direct? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to defend the so join us in the depths will remain in the shallows. ah, in join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then me ah no,
9:59 am
you don't do it. you know it nice number didn't pull the one where you know, you didn't come home. i don't, i don't gonna don't good down the phone that i'll use and 46 and then i get it looks like i need it there. that i think we're pretty on the find the most of it off the front of it and then we can just talk to the middle, who was the nation with those who knew that all along 20 possible initials could potentially use
10:00 am
the we will not allow the opponents of the revolution mercenaries were sold out to the u. s. government to provoke destabilization. cuba accuses washington of inciting mass demonstrations across the country. thousands of taken to the st, protesting and economic crisis. and what they're calling for handling of the kobe pandemic. providing the spirit of neo nazi segregation in europe and russia takes a shot at france over covert vaccine. that's as a senior official tells europe to reject jobs offered by moscow. and beijing and starvation will eclipse the devastation of the pandemic. that's according to oxfam, which says 11 people are dying from hunger around the world every minute. we got insight from the charity.
