the hello welcome to watching archie international where it's just gone. 10 pm moscow. now top story, the situation has continued to deteriorate in afghanistan, where the taliban has quickly swept to power across the country after the u. s. the through and it's led to turbulence scenes that could bull's main airport tons of tens of thousands of both foreigners and afghans remained stranded as they desperately try to flee the country. the welcome fire can be heard in the scenes from overnight. the heavily guarded airport with military personnel attempting to contain massive cries that had gathered earlier on friday evacuation flights resumed after several hours. now while the airport remains one of the few places, not yet under taliban control, these images from the south east, the country and the city of cost. the street said being patrolled by the militant

could you don off takes a closer look. this video right here, claims to show taliban fighters, flaunting american, made gear and well looking as natal. like as it gets headed, come out just a month ago. it would have been rubbish. as an obvious fake, but today it's you really believable americans left behind weapons and war machines worth billions of dollars. so many in fact that the taliban might not even need them all. 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 hand it over to us at the airport and getting this much advanced weaponry, including a whole air force would have been bad enough. but misery loves company. americans also forgot to destroy biometric devices, used by the us forces to keep track of african nationals. the devices known as
3:03 pm
handheld interagency identity detection equipment contain identifying biometric data, such as iris scans and fingerprints as well as biographical information and are used to access large centralized databases. now, among other things, these gadgets can reveal if an individual ever cooperated with the american military. now these people could be literally one ice can away from death. the embarrassment of c captured americans systems paraded in the straits is going to be something which will hold us for a long time. but even worse is the fact that the us mismanagement, caused washington to abandon allies in ways which were disloyal. and this is going to make it very, very hard for the united states to,
3:04 pm
to game that will regain the trust of its major allies, including the united kingdom, australia, japan, india, and the like weapons and equipment is not the only stuff the u. s. wasted in gunnison billions of taxpayer dollars would dumped down the drain of failed projects and initiatives. $20000000.00 that makes the soldier look like he target on the shooting range. i mean sure. as long as it looks good, i hate to be an afghan soldier wearing a uniform. it's sort of like, shoot me written on the back. yes. the american military spent almost $30000000.00 on the uniform with a for as design to be used in a country which has only 2 percent of its land covered by trees. 176000000 was flashed out on a road that failed to last even a month, and not because it was bombed or anything parts of it were simply washed away. america also burned through $9000000000.00 to eradicate of gamma extends in from

a poppy fields. instead, year to year, the rates of opium cultivation showed a steady rise. despite the investment, the cultivation of opium poppy in galveston has trended upward for 2 decades and insecurity has made it difficult to reverse. the growth of gaston developed its own ways for thousands of years. america tried to reverse its traditions and impose a new order for 20 years. so turns out opposites do not attract and garrison was going to start a yearly, not a place at coach. he says there are a lot of different people there. there are a lot of different tribes her the culture is much different than what we would expect or are used to dealing with. we often underestimate their own ability to be dedicated to remaining in control of their country and being able to move forward to do that and have the patience to do that. the
3:06 pm
failure and a lot of these interventions that turn into war and misguided misplaced money are because we don't think about the populations and the people we think about interests are much larger, strategic scale. and geo political competition, if you will, on who has more power in these regions and society. him all the pentagon has sent helicopters, rescue nearly 170 americans from a hotel near compose main airport. it is the 1st time since the afghan capital fell to the taliban, that american troops have moved into the city to evacuate. individuals would have warning that you might find the following footage, disturbing. early this week i made chaotic scenes on the runway to men frantically held on through u. s. military plane. while it was taking off, they tragically fell to their death. just moments later,
3:07 pm
both were under 30 years old. one was a doctor. the other was zaki and warry, a 19 year old football or for the african national youth team. but washington's m. boy to the went us insist that no friends of america were among those clinging to the aircraft of trying to get people out. and our friends and allies are not hanging off of planes. our friends and allies are getting the support of the u. s. government. i think her parents might have been on fire for the images that i've seen. i haven't been over there, but if those images are actor and they're not shooting a film, that lady might be lying. i mean, he got into play on his own will. so you got a plane, you fall off your own right and we'll do addiction. so that's all in his on doing. and that was just stupid action. that was regrettable. and i believe he was alive. he would say i was doing that. i think pretty much anybody i was in couples, probably a friend of ours since they were working with our military. now we have a trade off gas and they betrayed our citizens. are still there. and allies that
3:08 pm
for, alongside us, we seem to put our young men and women and that situation and they turn around and leave the course you betrayed to be, you go there. we have so many people helping us there. right. and then we just leave your on your own. now, you know, you want to do that to anatomy, let alone a friend. and you know it's going to happen as soon as you leave there. so yeah, that's, that's terrible. we don't do that. we did do that, and that's the reflection, a leadership. well on friday, joe biden, to give and address and feeling questions on the crisis. am washington's decisions in the run up to last sundays full of bull, despite maintained criticism from all sides, he did try to put a brave face on it, although he did admit uncertainty. so vacuum ration mission is dangerous and evolve risks to armed forces and has been conducted under difficult circumstances. i cannot promise with the final outcome will be well biden. he essentially used his address to try and divert attention away from what were obvious shortcomings and
3:09 pm
lapses in judgment that led to the taliban serge over the weekend. now biden did try to sell the ongoing evacuation as if it is some sort of success. now, there is a situation as we understand where there are a number of american citizens that are still stuck in cobble. now it's also important to note that, you know, mainstream media has been quite critical of joe biden, on this certain networks that tend to lean toward the democratic party and their coverage of launched scathing attacks on biden and how he handled the situation. secretary blink, and how did president biden get this so wrong? how could officials have miss fis? how did it happen? how do we get here? does president abide not bear the blame for this disastrous exit from afghanistan? now in his speech biden admitted that the administration thought up until the very last moments that the afghan forces would not collapse so quickly,
3:10 pm
the taliban would not be able to search ahead so quickly. and it's also important to note when he was speaking, he seemed to indicate that it was not the time for criticism. the can overwhelming consensus was that they were, this was not, they were not going to collapse the afghan forces. they were not going to leave. and we're not going to just abandon and then put down their arms and take off to be plenty of time to criticize a 2nd guess, malice operations over. but now, now i'm focused on getting this job done. now, seeing as this was a joint nato alliance that was operating and a half ghana, stan, with a hasty pull out, has put that nato alliance. once again into class gen in europe. there are some that are beginning to call into question america's leadership of the nato coalition . no, we have not heard any like overt, straightforward criticism. some tropes have been found in the media lately and in the public domain. it's a remarkable change in tone,
3:11 pm
because up until then biden had been viewed as the opposite of donald trump has more reliable and trustworthy by the nato allies. however, there seems to be rising disillusionment among nato allies. and joe biden, though, says this is not something he's concerned about. i have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world. i've spoken with our nato allies. we spoken with nato allies, the secretary state or national security via he's been in contact with his counterparts throughout the world. and our allies, as has the general are see me, i keep calling them in general. but my secretary of defense, the fact of the matter is i have not seen that matter of fact the exact opposite i've got. now donald trump has said that this is the greatest strategic error in us history. he called it capitulation. donald trump has said that joe biden owes america an apology. the world is now looking on and watching the scenes in cobble.
3:12 pm
the white house is certainly under quite a bit of fire. jo biden's poll numbers are dropping. many are looking on the situation and afghan. stan and saying that the united states seems to have pretty much dropped the ball here. and i'm hoping that will washington's allies are also counting the cost of events after their 20 year campaign in afghanistan, as simon right now explains betrayed, abandoned fend for themselves. forced to face up to their own weakness. i have not the poor people of afghanistan on america night, so i have been left humiliated by washington. sudden decision dropped my gun. it's done and they do do all the 2 decades britain, the defense secretary, even started welling up to me. get back. some people get back the u. s. golf ball that didn't the mountains get his
3:13 pm
own people down, have to send some troops back. us general mark community college emitted. i had the off the taliban to help them get american safely away through the state department . but taliban are facilitating the safe passage to the airport for american citizens. embarrassing. what was embarrassing that it was for washington night, so i like the room as they weren't even consulted on the time line. what consultations did happen. but julie ignored, we have seen the consequences of a difficult decision made by 30 allies together. when you decide to intermission, that the nato general factory then released multiple, multiple job and bending the june a little bit. because even if the nighttime and the degree there was a need to come back on his don, literally none of the others wanted to leave the dead of night. leave the car developed in the hall and more to the point they wanted us to stay behind. because without america, the other $29.00 men measure about youthful then africa on me regimen taking on the
3:14 pm
taliban and play molly on usual. what really must things off the full we the trunk? truth bombs about how useless nato minus america actually is. joe biden came to office saying stuff like this, but our alliance just a strong foundation, which we can our collective security and prosperity can continue to be bill. but he didn't mean it. uncle joe made it look more pointless than ever. the 1st opportunity for you to reason was that the off did we just feel that we had to follow the united states and hope the dollar went into press. it would be all right on the night. yes, that's exactly why i'm and the west could not continue this us lead mission emission, conceive, executed in support and defense of america without american logistic, with eyes u. s. f. how are you guys? american?
3:15 pm
i've got ahead to say out loud in jim and children angle american lawyers by saying we are basically dependent on the decisions of the us government process. my new micron is too busy lurching right to win an election thing. he's much worried about stopping refugees heading is way in port issue. we need to ensure that we are protected from a large scale influx that cannot detrimental effects. so ordinary ass guy left on their own. again, there have been some talk about trying to control the tunnel by using the west weapon of choice sanctions. i dial is going to work his line. tell about, hey, we're in afghanistan represents the challenges for china, but also opportunity and beijing has been laying the groundwork for some time for these quote unquote friend relieve, friendly relations that may help to establish with the group who oh yes, join is coming on, board is checkbook lead designs on the jan nathan to mind us both
3:16 pm
china very step and good job. everyone in times are these. i think it's always worth giving a good shout out to some old school cynical and self preservation. on the one hand, this kind of stands as president of gone were poorly fled the country on sunday, with 4 cars and a helicopter stacked with cash. he's denied that by the way, but my congratulations go to the gym forces whose priorities are well in order. it may have left behind a load of their local support staff that they did find time to take home. yet $60000.00 can be more than $300.00 bottles of wine washing i can fill out for the saturday nights. crowds hit the streets of paris for 6 week in protest against you. the passes will be reporting from the capital just off the bright. ah
3:17 pm
ah, with me ah. ah, i use so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development. only personally,
3:18 pm
i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful at the very critical time. time to sit down and talk the hello again. that frances enter the seat weekend, randy's against vaccination passes after authorities made mandatory to enter public places of bananas from the streets again to protest from paris porter slayer sentence report quite a significant place in paris in the square in front of duluth museum. so this had teach symbolism for the people of france, and i would say, easily $10000.00 people have turned out at this particular demonstration. it's wonderful that is happening concurrently. often in fact, today in paris alone, there's more than 200 demonstrations across the whole country. now people have
3:19 pm
taken to the sea because they're against the company to be vaccinations. at the same time, miss march started at the offices of a p agency prom crate. and that is because protests are against the mainstream. french media that they say has been incorrectly proclaimed that the coven vaccination is 100 percent safe. they also argue that they've been depicted negatively in the media, that they've people who are pro liberty, not people who are and are coast. and he back says, and all the others, however, this is the, as i mentioned, the 6 consecutive, we can, that we've seen protests like this across crowns. and the protest have sometimes resulted in violence. this particular protest has been organized by the yellow this . and we'll take a quick look now at what some of the previous protests have seen. the
3:20 pm
news, the me the now there is a strong police presence. as the protest had marched down some of the main street in paris, the police have been following behind in various bands and on foot. and at the same time we all, what's the thing? a strong police presence here. they've been following the marches down the main streets of paris whenever the march of the police have been cheering at them and a short time ago. there was some shuffling happening here in front of the loose museum. i've been talking to a number of the protesters, and the point that they've really been making is that they worried about the future
3:21 pm
of france. they think that the country has now been divided into those who are pro, to help pos that is needed to, into any kind of public space and have been in practice for almost 2 weeks now. and those who are against and take a listen. i'm here just to, to show the work that liberty is really close to everything we have, you know? so if you're taking our leave, if you, what do we have, what do we have left? nothing, all these rules, this new rules about the past are just are just worsening. and i think we don't have any freedom left and, you know, trying to find the children try trying to forbid people from going to the restaurants, etc. is like, you know, a big change in our society and that's about it. i think i'm here because i just
3:22 pm
don't want the society that, you know, comp coming towards this. and i'm fighting for my own generation. i'm fighting for the next generation as well. i want them to know what freedom is you can see to the rights of me a petition of police bad. these are police who are inside the vehicles. there are many that are amongst the crowd with a veterans and coding of the protest is the concern, of course, is that that could result in violence still to seem to say, but certainly a strong feeling here. and we are witnessing bigger numbers and we saw last we came . so it's 30 is an indication, the anger and frustration on the streets of paris is far from over mile after more than $200.00 days in low time. anger has also boiled over in your striding city of melbourne, the clashes between and huge friction protestors and police. if we can. more than $200.00 were detained officer 5 pepper sprayed to break up the cry. explain this required possible treatment,
3:23 pm
and every pre test arrested does not face signs of around 5 and a half sized industry $1000000.00 such just on the authorized us dollars demonstrations erupted after authorities extended lock dance across the entire state of victoria for another 2 weeks tougher restrictions often place to other regions after spike in k v cases. similar rallies also seen in sydney and bridge. the on the for that some panoramic continues over in the united states too because there are a number of doctors and medical institutions and i denying care to those unvaccinated against co with 19 even if they have life threatening conditions in the state of alabama, which does have americas low, snarky lation, right adult to lay that why he wouldn't be treating any body with act a jap. if patients ask why i told them cove it is
3:24 pm
a miserable way to die and i can't watch them die like that. unfortunately, many have declined to take the vaccine and summoned up severely ill or dead. when washington the patient was denied liver transplant as he didn't have a k with vaccine. he says he's not an anti vac, sir, but his medical condition means that a job could cause dangerous complications. you put the issue of who should be treated up for debate. he is for certain people talk of actually because he's para sigma. he's refusing to see his patients last 5 years, actually breaking up across retired because they actually you mustn't from the intentional wrong thing and on time these patients are not the same doctor. i don't want to say at risk of home, i think everyone should be treated regardless of whether they do or not. i just kind of thinking that we've got to get out of this somehow we couldn't get it could
3:25 pm
be a mismatch. we're now in a situation where we got 1000 people going on a daily basis again, because it said or thought way in the u. k. in america, most tracks. now, i can't help thinking that this doctor's really trying to make a point. the only way to get that normally we're not going to control the infections. i think it's just trying to convince people really, and people should be doing their own research, but they should be looking in in the right places. i think when we are in a position in the united kingdom, where we are 8075 percent of the population vaccinated rising. why you all we actually trying to discriminate against bully harangued those small number of people who chose not to take the boxes very often. the reason it really makes me feel better at a middle class did a policy, has no medical benefits. what's happening with this last 5 ration program? people helping us buy will sort so bains even with advertising and ninety's females to say discuss this with your daughter,
3:26 pm
said if it's the right thing for you as an individual for your individual, how to have these fact sheets. and then you can picture in the u. s. for example, we're in a situation where we already guess people off the job. we haven't got time and 3 people. we need to just back tonight as many people as possible. we're going in the winter. and we want to try to avoid a lot when this ludicrous situation. we're so say recently if you've been vaccinated twice, i'm due tested negative for the crowd of ours. if you're in the same room as somebody tested both that you were forced to stay off work 600000 people took guy. i'm not in work in the united kingdom. anything, any medical procedure carries way. there's a risk. you've got to balance thought risk for very many people being box next will be the right decision. and for all this, it will not be the right decision, but we have not mandated vaccines. those fall off of actually program has been overwhelming success. leave people alone who don't want to do it. the danger of forcing them is not was just coming to our past 10 in the evening here in moscow.
3:27 pm
good to have the company will be back with more stories in about half an hour, but i forget go to web site for the stories too. and you can find that at the join me every 1st 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 the
