6:04 am
of course that was live in moscow, the russian foreign minister and his libyan counterpart of the issue of kindest on did come up, left off saying the russians position is exactly is basically the same as it was that what seeing and i've got just on confirm structures, position reconciliation talks have got to take place. the talks must be held between all relevant groups. and that group is comprised of pakistan, iran, china, india, russia, the us and of course, all conflicting parties. more details on this online right now. darcy dot com for the meantime, back into your regularly scheduled news program. so the taliban has now declared the creation of the islamic emperor of afghanistan, country name the militants, used when they and they ruled until they tumbled by us forces in 2001 a 4 days on from the taliban. dramatic return to power and chaos continues had cobbled international airport as people continue to flee on wednesday, hundreds crowded airport barriers. i
6:05 am
would suggest the u. s. military station to the airport use to gas. that as both crowds, i'm asking of the engine and dozens of people were sitting on the ground waiting to be evacuated with their possessions. lying all around the afghans, queuing at the perimeter, it's now been confirmed. us troops have been firing warning shots as quote, a crowd control measure. now, this following unverified video shows asking women at the airport pleading with us god. so let them in. the pentagon says it has to defend the field because thousands could overrun it, putting their own forces at risk. america and other western countries are prioritizing, getting their own nationals out 1st. meanwhile, taliban fighters and checkpoints surrounded the board on wednesday. the pentagon now admit to having a tough time getting people out. we don't have the capability to go out and collect of large numbers of people. we're really working hard to get as many people
6:06 am
through as possible, and quite frankly, we're not we're, it's obvious. we're not close to where we want to be in terms of getting the numbers through. so we're going to work that 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. the u. s. was caught unawares and i think once again, they have failed to analyze what the situation was. it really puts on full display, the delusions of the us, which after all has been in afghanistan for almost 20 years. consuming, according to some estimates, 2 trillion dollars. this money has not gone to the benefit of the afghan people, obviously. and this whole enterprise has been very bad for the american people as well. many us soldiers have died. the good thing about exposing the delusions of the u. s. empire and, and the neo concern to run
6:07 am
u. s. foreign policy is that it's going to make them harder to continue. so there needs to be a lot more criticism and exposure of what the reality is versus what are the promises and the, the false estimates by us intelligence officials cobble. apple has still overcrowded, with people struggling to flee. and while the list of countries conducting operations to get people out is quite long, the number of those who have actually managed to leave isn't so big. and these are some of the problems people are facing. the us doesn't have enough troops to god the bordeaux provide security along the numerous taliban checkpoints. now some countries have security doubts about taking in refugees and a more preoccupied with getting the return of their own citizens and fair enough, one might say, the u. s. has evacuated so far, the largest number of nationals and plans to rescue 22000 refugees by the end of august. as what the u. k. the authorities have so far pro back more than 300
6:08 am
british nationals and 2000 afghans. a germany which was slammed for only taking 7 people on his 1st plane out of cobble is now helped almost a 1000 a peter oliver picked up the story. well, what we've been hearing here in germany from the interior ministers of the 16 states that make up the federal republic is there petitioning whole state hoffer, the federal interior minister, saying germany needs a new african refugees program is the official message or the message coming from the top of government here in berlin low is that they want to see african refugees . how has been looked after in neighboring countries to galveston, countries like iran and pakistan as well. what we've heard from angular merkel though is she says there are lessons that must be learned from what's happened enough gone to some these are still the missing at this point, i can say that we have, nor did she tell of goals. and we have to discuss what lessons we have learned from this german evacuation flight. the continuing to leave the airport in cobble as of
6:09 am
thursday morning, around 900 people had been taken out on lowes plains, but not before. they'll germany vacuum 265000 cans of beer and 340 bottles of wine. the common for some criticism for doing math before people were put on those planes. we're also looking at how it's being perceived in the why the european sense, a lot of you politicians desperate to avoid a repeat of the 2015 refugee crisis. what we've, what we've heard from the likes of a manual mark on the french president, this him saying that his country needs to be protected from those who a seeking refuge. austria has said that camp need to be set up in neighboring countries to i've got us done to detain those people who've already previously been expelled from the european union to stop them. essentially trying to get back in to the you when it comes to greece,
6:10 am
which is one of those countries that is at entry into the european union for refugees and migrant. well, they're saying they're not going to see 2050 repeat itself. very strong words coming out of athens, as they say absolutely no way. is that going to happen there, in fact threatening, they'll send people back to turkey, which is in turn, say no way they can't take any more refugees coming over these particular routes. president, one, they're saying fences and walls will be erected the commission as well. those saying refugees need to avoid those routes that had been used since 2015, 16 to get in to the european union. we should avoid irregular routes, dangerous routes that are of that facilitated by smartness. instead, we should engage in legal, safe ways for people in need of international protection to come to your opinion. well, it's not just those people that have being referred to is illegal. a regular that
6:11 am
are having issues at the moment. those that have right says it would be to get out of cobble airport on some of those planes are also at a loss how to do that right now. our colleagues that are p shut german language systems service, spoke to one german passport holder, one german citizen, who told us his situation. and i just, i'm a german citizen throughout the day i stay in constant contact with a german foreign ministry and the german ambassador to couple. i received an email saying that one can enter germany, only one is a family member of a german. my fiance is such a person, but she's not being recognized in the official status. she's a citizen of afghanistan, but we hoped to leave the country as soon as possible. and one of the evacuation charter flights, of course, were very worried about what's going on. we haven't gone out since the day before yesterday since the taliban set up checkpoints all around the city were also worried that they could find out that i'm a foreigner or that in the future our situation make it worse. if they find out that my fiance is engaged or got married abroad once we arrive safely in germany,
6:12 am
will of course have no more reason to fear for our lives. we live in a free and democratic country. that's where i want to return to. that's where i belong. i'm calling on the government and the german foreign ministry to let us finish all the paperwork in germany. we have the rich of all of our documents in our hands. let us finally leave this caliphate. give me my fiance. permission to enter germany, the deputy chairman of the last parliamentary group in a bundle dog under a horn coat believes the german government has actually been masking the reality of the situation in afghanistan for quite some time. says a lot of high poker c at the moment and just to ation, we have to fear it is a complete disaster. what we are witnessing even and the beginning of this year, the government created to picture in our parliament that there is a full democratic state. ready enough to understand there is
6:13 am
lively, severe society and all these nato involvement success . all this is, of course, this hypocrisy it's, it's page, it was for 4 years painted a picture which is not in line with reality, which we can see, you know, i think we should take and bring refugees who are in fear of life. but at the same time, i think it's necessary to really talk to the real power in afghanistan, the tardy bands to go to negotiations to negotiations as well. concerning the refugees and not to break all diplomatic ties. protective gathered a lot, going on wednesday condemning the u. k government funds to events and i've got us
6:14 am
on a cold for those still stock that can be brought to you as quickly as possible. i'll be a u. k. foreign secretary dominic rob is faced big criticism in the media. it's offered was reported, african interpreters who was with british troops, missed being evacuated from cobble because the politician was too busy to agree to move while away on holiday. i've got ministers refused to talk to a junior minister and delay the call by which time the taliban, of course had swept to power. the daughter of a british national stock and i've gotten asked on saturday, but how easy has told us officials have done little to help from others is 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 and freshman issue is not say the twice at
6:15 am
the airport by crowd passengers trying to get into these slides and other civilians who was trying to play a role. so on person and she wasn't able to afford the flights because of her medical condition when she attended in the office was on and the couple on stress. surely she was constantly being dismissed by the guard. i tried literally bombarding their twitter account, the social media current, trying to get their attention to and bear in mind and pay attention to my mother's condition. unfortunately, every time i've contacted them, i was getting the same call, continues on. the embassy was interesting and encouraging. all citizens to try and seek commercial life, which on question may be full, been suspended on the remains of a difficult situation, but can cobble that have been rather hard wrenching scenes of the airport have
6:16 am
a look right here. i don't have enough pictures of desperate parents to be, you know, trying to get their children over the barbed wire on the 10th. and they're hoping to give them a better chance of getting evacuated. gunfire still being heard around the sides, least 12 people have been killed in the chaos will be at fulton, funday dozens more, have been injured. all right, let's cross live now to cobble and local jonas joy, but not resort. joining us to live on the program. good to see you show up, give us a sense if you will, of the current situation of the african capital right now, all things improving. well say that that is why if you can picture this off today is that only as a holiday for the whole in the days that he's under
6:17 am
control of the bus today? no money. no, he's not getting back to their normal life. i was just going to review like quite often and i was interested and don't show almost apologize. we've just got a really bad connection with you right now. obviously you're coming to us live from cobble. we're going to try and strength the connection and come back to you local
6:18 am
join us to show you, but not jeff is out stand by. we appreciate. now the hasty withdrawal of forces has seen a significant amount of us and nato weaponry and equipment goes straight into the hands of the taliban. following footage recently emerged on line from campbell. this shows and abandoned headquarters of the international security assistance for stuff and nato mission. you can see looks like stuff, seemingly smashed up all their computers, leaving bits and pieces all over the floor. they were apparently destroyed to prevent sensitive data from getting into the wrong hands. in a recent interview with a b c news, the u. s. president admitted he knew that would be chaos enough gotten us tom, but said, simply put, it will be unavoidable. this circuit, i don't think it could have been handled in a way that there we were going to go back. and hindsight, look, but the idea that somehow there's a way to have gotten out without chaos and suing. i don't know how that happens. the decision that seems to have caused biden rather a lot back at home,
6:19 am
his approval rating hitting an old time low. is caleb often not explain? the chaotic scenes and cobble have certainly not been good for the white house. the approval rating of joe biden has now dropped to less than half only 46 percent of americans say they like the jobs the new president is doing now. the events in afghanistan have certainly been a factor because prior to them he was at 53 percent. so a 7 percent drop seems you have resulted. some polls are now showing that joe biden's handling of afghanistan is less popular than george w bush's handling of afghanistan. and we now have a situation where a senator bob menendez, representing the u. s. foreign relations committee of the senate. he's coming forward with this statement. 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,
6:20 am
ministrations floored negotiations with the taliban, and the biden administration's flawed execution of the u. s. withdraw. the committee will seek a full accounting for these shortcomings. now, republicans are being far less forgiving. they say that jo biden's decision to rapidly pull out of afghanistan is harming the united states, discrediting the country, hurting relations with allies. there's been a fire storm of anger from the republican side of the aisle this biden administration. so they plan for every scenario. they told us to day prior that coble. ready cobble was not eminent, he told us less than a month before that this would never happen yesterday. president biden would accept responsibility and explain how he would fix the catastrophe in galveston. instead, he blamed his 3 pre discusses and against the 4 decide our troops for 20 years thing the pointing won't solve this crisis boaters. there should be top to bottom accountability at the pentagon and within the administration for this disaster that
6:21 am
this stunning failure has been met. with silence from biden's cause 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. now to add insult to injury, there are millions, if not billions of dollars of weapons. we're talking gun ammunition tanks, helicopters that have simply been abandoned. these were weapons that were given to the u. s. trained afghan forces and they seem to have been left behind. and from what jake sullivan, who is the national security advisor, joe biden says it's pretty unlikely that the taliban is simply going to hand them over at the airport now. nancy pelosi stepped up and defended the president on this point. 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. now joe biden
6:22 am
stands by his decision. he says that there were to not ever been a good time for the usa to pull out of afghanistan. this would have resulted at any point in which this happened. he says he did the right thing. polls are showing americans are not pleased. there is also some outrage in the international community, not a good day for the white house. as politicians play the blame game over what's happened in recent days. our sister tunnel r t. america put the whole issue up for debate. former president george w bush issued a statement on this. he said that he felt, quote, deep sadness at the return to power by the taliban, and called biden's withdraw. these are all quote, he said, a mistake and unbelievably bad. we really began to lose the war in afghanistan in 2003 when he diverted attention to iraq. and instead of focusing on afghanistan as we got deeper, deeper and iraq, afghanistan became known as the forgotten war. and people were wondering what's
6:23 am
going on with that war ended by the way. and that allowed taliban to begin to creep back in. and because all resources, all attention was thereby focused on iraq trying to trying to nation building and regime change. nation building, which were really, really crappy at the, by the way, and we need to get out of that business all together. and we, we failed. we failed in both countries. now we've got nothing but total disasters in both countries and over $60000000.00 worth of expenditure, not to mentioned the treasure of life and limb of countless americans and others that have been lost. and it's just, and it's a tragedy, as, as might just say that there are nato invoked article 5 that you know, and an attack on one member state is an attack on all. so at what point should they have returned to their original mission of keeping afghanistan secure? you know, we've seen these heavy handed interventions by the us and nato and western european
6:24 am
countries like in libyan syria. and i've had, you know, disastrous consequences. so, one would hope this, my situation, f canister might be a wake up call. you know, these military interventions don't work affectively and cause a lot of hardship and suffering for the population of these countries who have to solve their own internal political problems. most international legal scholars, the war and afghans dance was illegal because the taliban never directly sent 911 hijackers to bomb the trade center. and there are no legal basis for that war. so the swift advancement made by the taliban is the failure of the afghan forces. i mean is that kind of tone deaf and simply just punting responsibility. the us cannot and should not try to deflect blame for what's happened there at the end of the day. we are the ones who invaded that country. we're the ones who over through
6:25 am
the government there and replaced it with, with our own. and so when we suddenly decide to leave and everything goes to crap, we're ultimately responsible for that. you cannot, you cannot shock blame in this situation and ultimately all falls back on the united states of america for the devastation that being rotten, that country right now. we also did africa and president after ref, ghani has defended his decision to resign and flee. cobble in his 1st public address and leaving gonna blame the failure of the peace process for the taliban snatching power. he also rejected rumors, he run away with hundreds of millions of dollars stuffed into suitcases. despite reports, he tried to take so much cash he couldn't for the old inside his helicopter to them, you know, before you're welcome to come 1st. if i had stayed there, it would have led to bloodshed in campbell with the telephone and their national and international colleagues. had said clearly that while i'm there, they won't see any peaceful course. if i had stayed there,
6:26 am
the president of august on would once again be hanged before the very eyes of the guns and the big, shameful and historic disaster will happen once again. i was forced to leave the dentist on with one set of traditional clothes, a vest and the sand off it was wearing. i didn't have the intention to flee and abandon the country and i'm going talk to return back to get this done and continue . the fight that i take over hasn't led to the widespread bloodshed that many were faring, a public resistance for the groups return. so bobby, and limited have been some protests against changing the national african flags, but taliban black and white americans did kill and injure several protests as earlier on wednesday when they opened fire on a crowd. however, the demonstrations can't necessarily be viewed as anti taliban, as people have been waving the national fly to mark the countries independence day, one man was seen right then climbing all the way up a lamp post to fly the flag in front of a charing crowd. heading a bit further south to the city of course. and people also tore down the taliban
6:27 am
banner from the main square and hoisted the old da scan flag and said, oh we understand. taliban fighters did open fire. but there were no casualties report while the taliban has used the occasion of the 100 and 2nd anniversary of the country's independence from british rule. to officially announced the creation of b as law mac emperor of afghanistan. meanwhile, a more serious threat to the thought of power grub is potentially forming in the countries east. is reported. the afghan army soldiers are rallying in punjab province. it's the only region of canister that still contested. it was an outpost of taliban resistance, back in the 1900 ninety's. it also held out during the soviet invasion upon j. a province is located with an, a valley of steep mountains that form a very solid, natural defense and spearheading the resistance. there now was the afghan 1st vice president, umbrella, sally. unlike us nato,
6:28 am
we haven't lost spirit and see enormous opportunities ahead, useless caveats finished joined. the resistance sala has declared himself. i've got to start legitimate acting president offers for my boss, fled. he has a ford is the most before and been in charge of the national security directorate and other key figure is helping him rally the resistance together. that's not much sued. he's the son and the namesake of a prominent afghan warlord, who opposed the 1st taliban rule. a must suit, spoke back in june, about defending his home. they're going to fight for the rights of the people. they're going to fight for the rights of women, and they're going to fight for many other values, the church and you look at you from the past to see that you're the 1st line of defense. we're defending europe, you're defending division, and i've been fighting not just for themselves, but for everyone. my food has now urged western countries to provide weapons and ammo. and videos have started emerging on line of the roosters and forces. you can
6:29 am
see them here on the motorcycle waving the flags of the northern alliance, recalled reactions from experts including the former african interior minister about whether the lions is any threat to the taliban. the final of most, who did that expected, figured in the key mesh, incentive of national legal. maybe, tyler, i don't see that to me, but the majority of people that read. so it has been since it was fun shaded sensitive media and it's hispanic. so what i understand, they got to cautious, they don't want to stall me the want to, to continue negotiating, given the funds to valley the punch. a district has a history of standing up against any kind of a sort of guardian rule legged with the soviets. later by the civil law, i'm the only one. so there is a good chance that all those who are pushing the on the one would rally around the literacy. paul, i met some message,
6:30 am
some i'm at the machine at the moment. i'm given that to the vice president stared back. i'm the is making these defined claim is going to be very, i'll on the mental in terms of going listening, that particular opposition, which wasn't there, but it is slowly coming together. the ah ah, ah, the ah, ah.
