tobacco tours the telephone on nice is a hail of bullets on a crowd of people raise the african national flag a symbol. the militants have replaced across the country with that. and it's not the only show resistance as $10000.00 down soldiers report to me. rodney, in the north of the country onto the need to ship the vice president who and says he's now i understand the legitimate need. it's claimed they've already rested back perez and a couple of on code by ripped open old wounds in europe was, are mounting fear of a possible repeat of the 2015 might put a crisis last 20 years and 3 trillion dollars later in the us political commentator says his thoughts on what the rules was,
4:01 pm
was about. we invade the inner cities of america and we bring health care to those people. we bring shelter to those people. we bring medicine to those people. we bring counseling to the how about we invade america? and we start trying to help america. ah, quite a lie from the russian capital. this says on the international for myself and the whole team had r h 2. hello, on a warm welcome, and let's focus on afghanistan because 3 people are confirmed, killed in the afghan city of july, about where taliban fighters opened fire on a protest against the group seizure of power a dozen more was injured. it comes a day off to the minutes vowed to bring peace to the country. the fire was opened up,
4:02 pm
the 2 people saw to taking down the groups black and white and i'm hi and be down national flag instead. public resistance to the town upon takeover has been limited, so similar, protest hopping seen in other provinces. for example, for the south in the city of coffee, people also pull down the bonds bond from the main squared wasted. the old can flag instead kind of on fight is open fire soon enough, but no casualties have been reported. local journalist blah, suarez says the militants are under greater scrutiny these days. so that pricing ending up the course on line one. going to install the african national flag. if you are the taliban, you would have not expected this 20 years ago. today. it's a different one. it's then there's a younger generation people have access to social media. so we will have to see what is the official position of those other bond about this issue right now. this
4:03 pm
is a major headache for the taliban soldiers trying to police the city. a city i don't know, a city that's too complicated. and this vacuum, some people have just thought ok, this is the time. let's go and pick up some vehicles and weapons from formal officials at the taliban have been shedding their what's up numbers, the number of cell phones, asking residents to basically get in touch if they saw such incidents. and they've been rather swift in quick, in terms of responding 20 years ago. no one could speak and had access to social media. did i want to start watching in the world is watching. in the meantime, a more serious threat to the telephones power grab this for me in the countries north. it's reported that around 10000 ask around army soldiers, all writing and punch had province a fairly regional best artist on that. still contested fact, it was an outpost of taliban resistance. back in the ninety's was never captured during the civil war. and also held out during the soviet invasion. punch problems
4:04 pm
is located within a valley of steep mountains that form a solid, natural defense spearheading resistance. and now is the african vice president fast umbrella sala? unlike us nato, we haven't lost spirit and see enormous opportunities ahead. useless caveats finished joining the resistance. sala has declared himself afghanistan's legitimate acting president of his former. both fled the country. amid the telephone's advance on cobble, he has for islam as before, one was also in charge of spying on the militants needing the national security directorate and other key figures. helping him rally the resistance together about my food, the sun and namesake of a prominent afghan warlord that opposed the foss town upon rule. here's what my food was saying. back in june about defending his homeland. they're going to fight for the rights of the people. they're going to fight for the rights of women,
4:05 pm
and they're going to fight for many other values. the 2 chairs and you look at you from the past 2 tickets. you're the 1st line of defense. we are defending europe, you're defending division, and i have cancer fighting, not just for themselves, but for everyone. and videos have already started marching on line of those resistance forces. here you can see the troops flying the green white flags of the northern alliance. this was formed off to the town about foss came to power in 1996 and at fort the group until the us led invasion. we discussed the emerging resistance with number back spots and opinion is divided over whether it poses any real threat to the taliban. well, did you remember the machine? how strong this is going to be? but it was a moment to sort of symbolic way because a ton of under one control of the country, pretty much all of the conditions, small pockets resistance could be remaining, then they could develop, decides to doomed in the short term, not get very big. but i think one big question will be whether any foreign
4:06 pm
countries don't recognize north and line any other resistance group and to join and ostracized. and i'd like to try to been given that one suited valuable contra district, has a history of standing up against any kind of italian rule noted by the soviets. later to the civil law. i'm the one that is a good chance that all those were pushing on the rally around the literacy. paul, i met some assaults some at the moment. i'm given that to the vice president stared back and he's making the claim he's going to be very, i'll on the mental in terms of goal is things that particular produce and which was in there pretty slowly coming together. and the fight promises to be a bloody one, has a ton upon has got to towns on the high tech, also was billions gifted by the americans to the afghan army, us national security adviser face and roll them virus and questions about all what
4:07 pm
weaponry that was left behind, those black hawks were given to the tall one. they were given to the african national security forces to be able to defend themselves. we don't have a complete picture obviously of where every article of defense materials has gone, but certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the taliban. and obviously, we don't have a sense that they are going to readily handed over to us at the airport. taliban fighters happening, parading around, cobble shut off the new made in america, rifles and humvees, and ton of on social media accounts in posting video is filmed in the cities and regions of armed supplied by western powers. on the line now is dave lindo founding editor of the online news site. this call be happening? well, i think that your new sites name is very appropriate for what is happening right now in afghanistan. i think most people say that the funds we want to ask you about
4:08 pm
will this weaponry, i mean nancy pelosi is called the military kit. the taliban got quote, some stuff. now, how much extra cloud has this stuff she potentially given the telephone? well, i think they've got some pretty fancy stuff and they may have a lot of like hardware they don't have any of the really high tech stuff. they don't have any aircraft, missiles and things like that because the, the afghan military wasn't supplied with those. but they do have, you know, armored humvees, they have they have probably heavier artillery they've, they've got rockets, but again, they don't have the stinger missiles and what kinds of things knock down helicopters and that kind of thing. which of course, all bun don't fly. so you know, they, they didn't need to shoot anything down like that. so i'm not sure it gives
4:09 pm
a great advantage. they got a lot of guns. they got a lot of ammunition. they probably have me. i don't know, you know, hand grenades, things like that. they wouldn't have any tank equipment, they wouldn't have things or attacking another power coming in because the they were being armed against the telephone. remember, i mean, we saw, of course i still using us applied to guns and humvees to build a kind of fit the size of belgium is, are a consign this new kit that, that, you know, flaunting on social media, also kind of supplies and themes, it's expansionist, tendencies, i don't know, i, you know, because because of the nature of the tell a bond and who they were, they were fighting with, with basically send me automate or automatic rifles assault rifles and r p g s s about it. and so the african army wasn't being armed, fight against a,
4:10 pm
a high tech opponent. and so i'm not sure that it gives to tell, by a lot of material to oppose a force that's getting armed safe from the west. if some, if the west were to come in with arming with helicopters and sporting them, they wouldn't have the equipment from the us to shoot down playing some helicopters and to attack tanks other than the refugees. they have returned at a 2nd. so i don't know, i mean they, they got a lot of weapons. so if they're going to be fighting against the northern alliance or something, it gives them a real advantage. but aside from that, i don't see it as anything like what happened when libya was overthrown or you know,
4:11 pm
when material gets captured from a legitimate army. and like i say, the syrian army, if it's over run somewhere, they lose serious equipment. well, that's what i want. also got that you mentioned there. i mean, some of the things did happen that happened in theory that happened in iraq. i mean, why is the u. s. failing to learn, it's less than was it simply carelessness or they are ready to get out and they need to get out best so quickly. but they've said, you know what, just leave. we don't need it. you know, they didn't withdraw date, they retreated, you know, they ran out really as fast as they could in the and they, they left most places in the dead of night. it was pretty humiliating. it was a real defeat for the us. and that's why they left, there were a lot of material behind, even even the u. s. did not just the stuff that they gave to the african forces. but that's not the 1st time they've done this. they did it and
4:12 pm
be at nom in a massive way. they did it in, in, i guess, in iraq. they pulled out pretty quickly and left a lot of stuff. you know, when you look back the u. s. s. in one very many worse sense, let's say world war 2, they didn't win and korea, that was a stalemate. they didn't win vietnam, they didn't win in iraq. they didn't win in afghanistan. now, the only winds i can tell you up is grenada, which was a tiny little island, defended mostly by my cuban airport laborers who happened to have guns with them. and after that, it's hard to come up with something like this. so this is just old, one of a long list and the lesson never gets learned. us goes in and messes place us up,
4:13 pm
but it doesn't win. well, i think when people are looking i was unfolding head. so i can last for the us. it's the last for the ask around people primarily who at the moment to get actually any p, the only winner. the only winner has been the arms industry in the united states. and the generals have gotten promotions because they were able to say they, they were active in a war, but it's something that i've been hearing time and time again over the last few days. and it's something, it's become increasingly obvious experts you amongst them. thank you so much as a dave, it was to have you on the program that was dave lindell founding out of this can't be happening. make sure, having a comedian jimmy talk has some advice for washington on how to avoid such humiliation that we were just discussing here. he said it would actually returns, you know, he's going underground. do you want a u. s. intervention a military intervention? tell me about which country you want the u. s. intervening. and i think it's about,
4:14 pm
i mean, because a lot of people are saying we need to stay in afghanistan to help the women. i say, how about united states takes about 3 or 4000 troops and invade los angeles and brings health care and medical aid, and shelter to the 60000 homeless people in los angeles. how about we invade the inner cities of america, and we bring health care to those people? we bring shelter to those people. we bring medicine to those people. we bring counseling to those people. how about we invade america? and we start trying to help america. when is, when is america going to care about the women? and, you know, one out of 5 kids in america lives in poverty. so if you want to help people, why don't you give women and children, plenty of women, a living wage in the united states, give them health care and give them an education. ironically, that's what the government of gamma ended up until we invented the taliban. if you took, so there's 600000, according to statistics are 600000 homeless people in america. lot of those are
4:15 pm
women. lot of those are children. now if you gave them each a $1000.00 stipend a month, a $1000.00 a month to go get housing. that would cost $7200000000.00 a year. 7.2000000000. you know, we've been spending 2 trillion dollars or the last 20 years, 300000000 dollars a day to kill people and get it then. so the united states ever really cared about women. they could spend a $7200000000.00 to do or take care of the homeless people in the united states. give them a 1000 that they won't do it. so yes, joe biden, nancy pelosi jobs humor. mitch mcconnell, all the leaders and both parties, they know that they're, that one out of 5 children lives in poverty in the united states, along with their mothers. and they don't care the now for off can install itself. it's international app put in the capital for more themes of chaos on wednesday. yeah,
4:16 pm
i just unverified figure says, asked on women, not hob meeting with us, gods to let them in. america and all the western countries are prioritize in getting their nationals out. meanwhile, proud to vaskins, queuing outside the perimeter. it's now been confirmed us troops flying warning shots as quote, a crowd control measure. the area surrounding the bow is being patrolled by taliban fighters who also open fire to disperse the crowds that not reportedly an east shooting at people. long queues have also formed outside different embassies and cobble made up of people hoping to escape. france has moved its embassy to the capital that port to speed up processing, and ensure greater safety for those trying to flee. what a fool now reaches beyond afghanistan borders, of course, several european nations are refusing to take in refugees from the country ripping
4:17 pm
wide open old divisions over mass migration with many faring, a repeat of the crisis of 2015. when more than a 1000000 people came to europe, i'll pull a slip picks up the story. while an increasing number of european nations are refusing to accept refugees from afghanistan, what they most afraid of is a repeat of the 2015 migration crisis and countries. i'm not afraid to admit that you have, for example, austria saying that it's against immigration. the interior minister said that the aim of europe should be to keep the bulk of the gun population in the region. at the same time we heard from hungary saying it's refusing to take in more refugees it. it won't make it citizen pay for the quote floor the decisions of the united states wanting from the french president in manuel crohn has come under fire for using the term irregular migration coming from a gunny son. and this had left
4:18 pm
a lot of people angry, micron disorders, france, he mainly wants people to stay there. he doesn't give a damn about anything. it is important for him that no one comes to us. what about the right to silence? what about these children? these women, these men, her flaying the terror of the taliban, france must not stand aside. conquered actions are needed. now convenient, wait for this has agreed to pay. can 5, not 50? not 500, not 5000, but 5 refugees. how many times in the last 3 days have we heard your pin leaders talk about human rights? they seem to be saying all the why things, when it comes to love and compassion and justice. and yet the reality speaks a very different story. these huge qual at the moment between brussels and member states and that quarrel is over quoted. it's over protective measures and the like . at the same time,
4:19 pm
we've heard these european leaders practically reaping when it comes to the issue of women's rights. and yet it just remains words, it's almost like it's fancy p r. the overall sentiment really is one that europe does not want migrant and they're not going to be offering any kind of helping hand . and just in case you need further proof of it, germany has come under fire for using its military ship to bring some $65000.00 cans of beer to germany instead of bringing hundreds of us guns and their families who have hoped the german authorities in afghanistan these people were not going to be and they had not been evacuated in time. the german president had said that the gun turmoil shamed the waste, the images of desperation at campbell airport. shameful for the political west. we are experiencing
4:20 pm
a human tragedy for which we share responsibility. pearlin must do everything it can to bring our people and all afghans who stood for years by their side to safety, germans are increasingly worried about an influx of refugees. almost 2 thirds of the population has admitted that they are concerned about a repeat of the 2015 migration crisis. now this comes as important election ought to be held next month. a general election in germany and presidential elections that will be held in april next year in from the issue of migration is likely to be a hot potato. come those elections, which is why you have politicians fighting over the us gun migration, attention crisis. the u. k. parliament in the meantime has been recalled from its summer recess to debate the situation of can start increasing report treating people and taking in refugees. britain has pledged to resettle $20000.00 afternoons
4:21 pm
per and $5000.00 in the 1st year, while the entire withdrawal and in suing kale left many m. p. 's incensed the reputation of the west to support democracy across the world has suffered recent defence not going to stand, shade the west trying to impose just a weston example of democracy possibly was a roots that we should reconsider. we look at many options with the speaker, including the potential for staying longer ourselves. factoring complacency from our government. was our intelligence really? so whole. what would, what would i do differently? i wouldn't, i suppose, failed. now, to shop, take the time of doing everything the con to get these people. so what does everything that can mean that evacuation to go ahead? we get this done in a expeditious fashion as we can y'all sacrifice deserves better than this. and
4:22 pm
so to the people they say on lives on their lives for that fellow, when i'm for the whole it will support just 5000 in the 1st year. what the 15000 men to do, i know round and wait until they've been executed. k officials are working, run the hundreds of thousands of british people of flowed talk, going to start to serve the private to flew to avoid public service. this is off the mac marketing point, rafael, the file system. the politicians decided to withdraw. the politicians must be responsible for the consequences while parliament was debating inside, outside protest as a gathered to condemn the government's response. the current events among those while people with family trapped in the country with some carrying signs, saying guns had been left to be butchered. the protest is autumn, wanting more people be brought to not to the u. k will also in the crowd with the u . k. x opposition leader. i'm hoping that the government will both explain
4:23 pm
the chaos of the back to ation. would agree on a much larger number of messages, counties this come to this book for them, dropped the anti refugee rhetoric pretty patella's been dish out with the past few months. a bubble of give us coming thing thinking to learn the foreign policy lesson. britain, after all, was returns to the training the african i've written after all, set up a training cool to the army and the result has not been a good idea. we heard from free, but if you don't tell the british national stock in afghanistan, she told us and you can officially have done little to help bring back elderly mother. my mother's a 79 years old, fragile disabled woman was previous history of a stroke. and she is currently going through severe arthritis and which is waiting for a surgery. and so she cannot travel without a wheelchair access. and she has services from the airport on freshman issue is not
4:24 pm
on the twice at the airport by crowded passengers trying to get into these flights and other civilians who was trying to flee couple so pressure. and she wasn't able to afford the flights because of her medical condition when she attended in the office. was it on couple on stress? surely she was constantly being dismiss. why did god, i tried literally bombarding their treasure accounts as social media current trying to get their attention to and bear in mind and pay attention to my mother's condition when, personally, and every time i contacted them, i was given the same call continues on the embassy was insisting and encouraging all citizens to trying a commercial life which are fresh and may be full, been suspended because of the us troops are trying to control the airport. jo biden's decision to pull out all that kind of stock which triggered the collapse of
4:25 pm
the cobbled government seems to have cost him dearly back home. would be us president's approval ratings, sharpie hitting and time low. while for more i'm now join fi. she's caleb moore, penn, straight from the big apple. i kayla the biggest test biden's presidency. so far you could argue, and if the numbers are to be, believe the people think it's a fail. indeed, we have seen the poles and it seems to indicate that as media is showing the fall out of biden's decisions for a rapid pull out of afghanistan. the public is not approving. jo biden's approval rating is now 46 percent less than half and that is the lowest. it has been since he has taken office. now keep in mind before the recent events in afghanistan, it was 53 percent. so this is a 7 percent rob, we're also seeing poles. busy that show that joe biden's handling of afghanistan is
4:26 pm
now less popular than george w bush's handle and of afghanistan. so quite a drop for joe. by now. he is blaming things largely on his predecessor, donald trump, who arranged a deal with the taliban. and furthermore, we have us senator bob menendez, of the foreign relations committee, stepping up and issuing this statement to listen. the events of recent days have been the combination of a series of mistakes made by republican and democratic administrations over the past 20 years, including the trumpet, ministrations, flord, negotiations with the taliban. and the biden administration's floor execution of the us withdraw. the committee will seek a full accounting for these shortcomings. the now republicans are being far less forgiving and they are saying that jo biden's decision is hurting the united states, hurting the reputation of united states around the world. it's emboldening our
4:27 pm
enemies. it's rather strong criticism coming from conservatives. this is what they've said. this biden administration said they plan for every scenario. they told us to day prior that coble. ready cobble was not imminent, he told us less than a month before that this would never happen yesterday. hope president biden would accept responsibility and explain how he would fix the catastrophe. and again, it's done and start to blame. tis 3 previous s's and the absence of ford, the sight troops for 20 years. thing appointing won't solve this crisis boaters. there should be top to bottom accountability at the pentagon and within the administration for this disaster that this stunning failure has been met with silence from president barton calls into serious question, his ability to carry out his duties as commander in chief. the president's failure to acknowledge his disastrous withdrawl provides no comfort to americans or afghan partners whose lives hang in the balance. so at this point,
4:28 pm
to add insult to injury, there are millions, if not billions of dollars of weapons. we're talking ammunition gun tank helicopters that have been simply abandoned by the u. s. trained afghan forces. they've been simply abandon. people are very concerned about whose hands these very expensive weapons good ends up in the hands up and from what national security advisor jake sullivan said. it's unlikely that the taliban is willing to just hand them over at the airport. here's what he said. i commend the president for the action that he took. this is what happens when you withdraw you some stuff. some equipment is left there. that was nancy pelosi talking about the fact that these weapons have been lost. now at this point, joe biden's approval ratings have dropped to less than half the world is reacting
4:29 pm
rather negatively to the scenes in cobble, but joe biden is sticking by whose decision he says there would never have been a good time to do this. at any point they went to the usa pulled out of afghanistan, there was going to be chaos. he says it was the right decision to make. so the world will just have to wait and see what happens next. joe biden is not popular for what he did, but it has happened and he sticks by his decision. was just fact. they'll probably be an emergency p meeting in the white house pretty soon to try and scramble to solve that situation. that was kind of open reporting from your many banks. and that is the rob on this, our coverage of the unraveling situation. i've gotta stop, we've been focusing, we've been following it playfully. we will continue to so this is our team national life and the ah, ah
4:30 pm
ah, ah, 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 are these, these are making the tobacco tours in the.
