effected an rti news crew reports from the front line. the small fire, the guys are trying to put up with their own hands. so my little piece like this burned down dozens of mile forest. ah, i broadcasting my direct from studios and moscow. this is our international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us in a breaking news coming in this hour, more than $300.00 people have died after a $7.00 magnitude tremor struck haiti the craig, which was also felt in neighboring countries, brought down buildings and left rubble strewn throughout stories almost 2000 people were injured have come to us, hated continues to face political instability, month after the assassination of the president's job and more using a tropical storm is also expected in the coming days occurring just 150 kilometers
7:02 pm
from the capital. the quick was even more powerful than a tremor in 2010, which killed around 300000 people, devastated the nation and sparked to humanitarian crisis. a senior researcher at seismic ology department in mexico national autonomous university has parallels with that tremor and says, an effective warning system is a problem for places like haiti in look at this as quick has similar characteristics to a devastating trema that occurred 11 years ago. fortunately, the time it didn't happen near the capital, most populated city poor to print as it did in 2010. however, we still see it's effect and here use of damage to infrastructure for an early warning system to work. then the unit detecting from us should be near the, at the center of the population should live farther away, giving them valuable seconds to react. but in places like haiti and california
7:03 pm
quakes occur in well populated places, that isn't an effective warning system which would give people time to prepare. now switching gears to the latest developments and i've ganna, stan biden is to increase the number of us troops to 5000 in cobble in order to protect evacuating american embassy staff. while warning that any action against us personnel will receive a military response. the new total almost doubles the original number, but he said that he would send just $3000.00. this comes as unconfirmed reports. say the taliban is now just 11 kilometers away from the capital. couple of the decision to increase the number of follows. another day of gains by the taliban seizing, i've got the 2nd largest city condo hark. meanwhile, the u. s. embassy in the capital couple is urging all americans to leave immediately going so far as to offer loans to those unable to afford plane tickets home and use any available commercial carriers. and here are the latest pictures
7:04 pm
from the capital where locals are desperately seeking shelter. after fleeing the tale bonds rapid advance men, women and children are struggling with harsh living conditions and an acute shortage of food and water. much smaller, i came from the northern jo john province. there was ongoing, brutal fighting and we could only save ourselves and fled to cobble and my mother, myself and some people of the town. car, condos, and bergland provinces came here to the park. we have all fled to fighting. there is no food and no water. these families have very worried because they have no idea what to do with lead from the here are proven due to have this fighting. many other families also flood and live in, in that conditions. if the situation continues like this and i've got to stand, then you want us to return. they should support us and give us weapons so we can defend our country as we have lost our family members during the case of the war. now as african women, we should get weapons and fight. now we discuss the latest developments enough kind
7:05 pm
of stand with a couple journalist belong, sir wally. the fact that the americans need almost 5000 us troops just to quit, you know, thousands of 5 lines in the embassy. it tells you where, honest son is after 20 years of massive investment in blood and treasure, not only by the americans, but also by the international community. and every time you hear to these countries tell the citizens to leave us on as soon as possible, especially cobble those type of messages. it is terrorizing ones who are already very fearful of what could happen. we heard. busy a lot of gotten fired from the police chelsea area, it's in p d 12 where the biggest prison is and everyone thought that this was a target bonus inside the city of cobble. so it did terrorize the local population,
7:06 pm
especially when a couple years. we're flying over the prison, then we were told by going to fish and that there was a problem in the counter narcotics wing of the prison. so you can imagine the impact of what is happening around the country. so it's not a success story. and it's also not the time you know, that the americans could blamed africa needed in africa. leaders could blame, you know, the americans. i think everyone has lived down the avalon people. and now we can see even more bloodshed and sufferings if the sci fi does not come any time. so now across live to kennestone, hamilton coalition to stop the war. now, thanks for being with us here in rti international. so if we get right down to it does bind, increasing the number of troops from 30025000 suggest that washington has miscalculated,
7:07 pm
how rapidly the telephone would seize the territory. yes, you clearly washington did did miscalculate, and it scrambled to increase troop levels to compensate for that. and then it began bombing and attacking taliban forces using b 52 bombers and other military equipment, killing many innocence, afghani civilians in the process. now, there's kind of a damned if you do damned if you don't situation happening here right now, because america will be criticized either way. was it the right time for america to pull out or as the reallocation of troops seem to be suggesting? is there ever going to be a right time for america to leave? while the u. s. should never have been. and nato should never have been in afghanistan in the 1st place. this was a unilateral and illegal invasion and occupation that took place without the
7:08 pm
approval of the un security council. and it provoked 20 years of a terrible tragedy for the afghan people who lost hundreds of thousands of lies whose and 100 millions more were turned into displaced people and refugees. now today, the united states of staging a withdrawal, a retreat from afghanistan, and they're doing it in a unilateral fashion. again, they are, they are leaving chaos and disorder behind. and i think that was a deliberate choice. because despite their, their stated commitment to the doha peace process, they didn't, they didn't use the help that they could have called upon from russia, china, india, iran and pakistan. and those regional and, and asian powers to organize an orderly withdrawal. and the
7:09 pm
creation of a stable government in kabul, that one that might have been a government of national unity or a power sharing arrangement or coalition government. instead, the u. s. deliberately left mass and just as they left the mass, a failed state and libya, a mess in iraq, mass in somalia. and in many, virtually every country in which they intervene. so from start to finish, this was the us acting illegally and recklessly and without any concern for the, for the interests of the people of the countries they've invaded. it seems that there's no, no good comes from being in afghanistan that the soviets were there. now the, there earlier this week biden said that he does not regret withdrawing us troops yet some say, if we look at the expense and loss of life in afghanistan, there is everything to regret in time. do you think the u. s. will grow to reevaluate their situation there. i think that the u. s.
7:10 pm
will continue to meddle in the affairs of afghanistan, even after lay leave. it's part of their process. it's part of their foreign policy to, to create chaos and undressed in various countries, fracture countries in order that they can better obtain heads your money or keep hedge ammonia over the continent of asia and the whole world in fact. so if they can, so disorder in the middle east, in central asia, in africa they, they feel that it's in their long term interest in order to be the super power of the world. and be able to control events to be the top dog. in other words,
7:11 pm
i don't think the leopard is going to change its spots, but i'll tell you what the peace movement wants and the peace movement in the united states and canada. because canada was involved to in this war in kandahar for 6 years. and another 6 years, i think, in capital what the peace movement wants is this. we want there to be an app, dan, a version, an afghan syndrome. the same as there was after the vietnam war when there was a vietnam syndrome. and the people of the united states would not support any foreign wars. we hope that after this debacle in afghanistan, the people of the united states again will not support foreign wars waged by their ruling elite. all right, thanks very much. can stone hamilton, nicola should stop what, thanks for being with us here in our, to international. interesting to get your thoughts on this topic are now if you look at this map right here shows just how much afghan territory is now under control of the telephone, including 2 thirds of provincial capitals and the biggest cities outside the
7:12 pm
capital, such as kandahar where they have reportedly seen hundreds of weapons and vehicles as well as large amounts of ammunition ramped up there offensive. in april, after the us president announced he was pulling out troops. earlier, we spoke to people in missouri sheriff, the 4th biggest city in afghanistan. it has recently fallen under control of the telephone model and i came to missouri sharif to defend my people that the taliban came here to ruin the country. they invite people to an islam does not really as long as if they think that they are also afghans. they should common negotiate with us. or if they want to take power, they should go for election and make people vote for them. but the only thing they actually want is to ruin afghanistan and our people jenco, especially then they got whole people are fed up with the war and unemployment. i've been jobless for 2 months already and we are tired of fighting. we want peace . people are fleeing from a dentist in their go into iran and turkey because of the situation here. they are
7:13 pm
selling their houses at half the price just to be able to leave. i wanted to do the same, but it ran close their borders because of the warren of ghana, samsung them or how much our life was ruined because of this war. have the people escaped, but those who had no money had to stay. these attacks scare our families because they always happen at night. people cannot even go to hospital just because they don't have money. and even those who eventually go often don't get proper care. and the head of an italian group working in afghanistan smoke, most women's rights says washington has left civilians in the lurch. the main concern though, is to ensure security for us where and the afghan women and children, they're taking care of our representatives. preoccupied with the fate of women's rights which they've been fighting for for 20 years earlier today, we decided to shut down our office and hide documents,
7:14 pm
so that the women under our watch can be tracked down. we will continue doing our job on the cover from home, telephone trip to just live in columbus is from couple things to them, not encountering any resistance. i'm afraid. the total present in the caps was just a matter of faith, probably there waiting until the definitive pull out of us troops scheduled for august 30th. before capturing the capital of 1st, it seemed with us to withdraw. afghans got the opportunity to run the country on their own. however, in fact, it turned out to be american, the west established a puppet government, which could not care less about afghanistan. and today's officials are only concerned about saving their lives. i think the americans could have handled better . they retreat talk more about ordinary people and they're right. tragic news in from turkey now. we're a russian fire fighting plane has crashed while helping extinguish blazes in the south of the country. all 8 people aboard died in the incident. according to the russian defense ministry,
7:15 pm
5 russian citizens were among the crew. an investigation into the tragedy is currently underway. a thousands are out again in paris, protesting against covered restrictions for the 5th consecutive week. the outcry is over, the mandatory health passes now needed to get into restaurants and other public places. are these policies here? take a closer look. well, as many as a quarter of a 1000000 people are estimated to have turned out to the streets from today to protest against the mandatory wearing of the mosque in public places and also having to show their health past monday. this is why we rallies taking place here in paris the saturday and they were moving for 200 that are taking place across the country. we are hearing our vine and in the city of leo, way the police are being forced to guess against protesters. the feeling on the ground is 31 of the creation people having turned out,
7:16 pm
awaiting you for 5 straight. we came saying that they'll be back next weekend until the situation is dealt with. the running call has been no, i'm a con. we will not accept will pass people to be shouting liberty while the various tech, hard from posters make reference to this health path, being a reminder of the possible use in a party south africa. i've also seen posters saying that this is a health dictatorship and shame on the past. the people i've been talking to are angry or frustrated and this is what a few of them had to say. we don't want to, we don't want the sanitary sewer or we don't want this. it's not. we're not again, vaccination. we're not again, health issues. we're not against all that. we just don't want to. this president has cornered us into depriving us or our freedom. i mean it's, it's crazy. it's soon, 984. it's for concrete and i'll be done to go in, in

7:18 pm
this is our international ah so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy plantation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, a very critical time, time to sit down and talk the problem on the desk failing is that it forces them to admit what that number is like and 3 or 2, which are the money supply numbers. once the numbers got so scary, they stop reporting them. similarly with the debt ceiling kabuki theater,
7:19 pm
that happens every couple of years. they're just going to get rid of it. no one even announced that number. it'll be impossible to find what the american is. and i'll just say a number sign for infinity the, the ah ah, welcome back. this is already international. state of emergency over wildfires has been expanded to cover to vast regions in eastern russia. fix. smoke has covered parts of the cooties for weeks and has spread it to the neighboring could sca region the fires are now threatening a dozen villages with several having to be evacuated this week. 19 news team has been following frontline cruise

7:21 pm
but the shift fast and the wind an open escape. sometimes they move one kilometer in each direct me of everything, just sort of us where is and fire and you're told everywhere. that's how you get burned. it's a total nightmare. i've never seen it as bad as this before, i think smart. so where is the fire now? that obvious, the main part is now behind the village. mistake with everyone is trying to do something to save the forest or it will all burn it was this year. this is how the forest bird. this is the epicenter. i can't even breathe here. the small fire to the guys are trying to put up with their own hands. so my little piece like this burned down dozens of miles a forest. mm me . ah. what
7:22 pm
else? what we were told the summer would be the same as usual on the more area. that's understandable because it happens every 5 to 10 years. we've been preparing for this, but would we have now? is the draw summer in history? we could not imagine. this is a very serious challenge, me in me, ah ah, according to new guidance published by the scottish government children as young as 4 are able to change their name and gender at school, claiming that it's possible to come out as transgender at any age. and schools have been recommended to support people's if they wants to transition without their
7:23 pm
parent's consent. it means that trans children should be able to use whatever bathroom or changing room they choose to help the kids better understand their gender identity. schools have also been advised to suggest neutral books and uniforms, but activist marion calder thinks that it's a dangerous path to tread on. this is inherently flawed through all id, all the jews, which is the pushing on the lobbying groups, which helps right this. this document 4 year old has no idea what the gender is kind of easily influencing the very easily influenced. ready by adults and what they say around them. so gradually putting kids in boxes that's an age of 4 years old. and that you're saying, oh, well, if you're a boy and you're like you're playing with dolls, maybe you're actually trumps. these are very dangerous ideologists that we're actually going into and i'm sort of being progressive naturally betting the question. but the scottish government says children are happier and learn more at
7:24 pm
school when they feel safe, respected, and included whenever they decide to transition. here is how broadcast her former british m p george galloway season. the nationalist government here frustrated by its failure to achieve its primary goal. the breakup of brits on the independence of scotland has made our turn to matters, solve sexuality and gender in a truly remarkable way. i have, as it happens, a 4 year old school, and if the teacher wanted to take her to the park, she would have to have my consent to do so. but under this new set of regulations, if my 4 year old wanted to change our gender, her name, her personal pronouns, they wouldn't have to even inform me. nevermind. as for my consent,
7:25 pm
this decree undoubtedly rob's parents of the rights and the european human rights convention. it is absolutely illegal in my view, i'm responsible for my children until they reach the age of majority. human rights groups are accusing canada of breaking international law over the sale of weapons to saudi arabia. a report from 2 organizations also states and canada, violated in arms treaty and humanitarian rights over the war in yemen, we spoke with the reports co author be endeavored to not only analyze, but refute the findings of canada's report and come to the conclusion that kansas export of l a. v. 's and other canadian made weapons to saudi arabia is actually in contravention of kansas legal obligations under the arms trade treaty to which
7:26 pm
candidate has been a safe party for a couple of years now. canada cannot permit the export of weapons to a recipient where there is a substantial risk that that recipient is going to use those weapons in contravention of human rights to facilitate human rights abuses. in 2019 canada, exported nearly $3000000000.00 worth of weapons to saudi arabia the very year. it also signed up for an international arms treating. and despite global pressure on the saudis, over the assassination of washington post columnist jamal ca, shoji in 2020 canada, still raked in more than a $1000000000.00 in weapons deals. but canadian leaders insist there are strong control systems in place, and there is no risk of rights violations. and much of this, of course, centers around the ongoing conflict in yemen, where who the rebels, who over through the government are up against a multinational coalition, led by saudi arabia. more than 200000 havanese have died since the conflict started
7:27 pm
in 2014. 4000000 have been displaced in tens of thousands are on the brink of starvation. un warns it is the world's worst humanitarian disaster. kelsey gallagher says, arm sales from canada. facilitate that war. it's been a hot complex, it's 2014 and is deemed one of the world's worst humanitarian crises happening today. and certainly can provision of weapons to saudi arabia has a substantial risk of facilitating that conflict. and that is not just our assessment. in fact that's, that's actually based on the assessment of the group, the u. n. group of eminent experts on yemen who have for a couple of years. now. i stated that the provision of weapons to saudi arabia is not only feeling the conflict, but last year in their annual report. they actually sent it out and directly named canada as one of the, the few countries directly named as supplying weapons and thereby feeling the violence. lots of news happening in the world and want
7:28 pm
a positive note. it is august 15th here in moscow at least, which means one thing. happy birthday mom. this is our today the one the make. no, certainly no borders and the blind number t's as emerge. we don't have authority, we don't, the whole world needs to take action and be ready and not a joke. people are the judge crisis, we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is paid for the response has been massive. so me,
7:29 pm
good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we need together in now we have e cigarettes. i just heard that it was a healthy alternative to figure out how do we trust tobacco companies with their message that these new products are actually going to reduce these new cigarettes or making the tobacco tours the the max size or this is the kaiser report. you know, stacy,
7:30 pm
i was thinking about fact and then 1980 the levers buyouts of those days. and the idea of going private. this law become germane to what we're speaking about. well, 50 years later. remember, we're heading right into the 50 year anniversary of the great reset of $971.00, which was the nixon shock when president nixon took the us off the gold standard. he announced that late at night on a sunday night, august 15th august 16th we were off. right. so we're yet again starting another great reset, i believe. and in this reset, you'll own nothing and you'll be happy. they've already told us what it's going to be right for every for seller, there's a buyer, black rock. so this is a wall street journal article that i was referring to here. max under the eviction band. many smaller landlords have struggled to collect their monthly rent checks and some have gone into forbearance on their mortgage.
