1:03 pm
disturbing the past few days have been an ultimate exercise in white washing for the white house. the beverly collapse of gaston following the us withdrawal happened as people were being shot, desperate of gunny scaling jets, some even tragically falling off the chassis to their deaths. and as a curator in chief biden searched for excuses, and he initially went for the statue of limitations defense. we've all seen the pictures. we've seen those hundreds of people packed into a c 17. we've seen afghans falling. there was 4 days ago, 5 days ago. it was actually 2, but that's not really the point. anyway. it was the fact that service dogs booted planes and flew to freedom while crowds fought for axis on the runway below. and the us ambassador to the un didn't seem to mind. we are in a says,
1:04 pm
trying to get people out and our friends and allies are not hanging off of planes. there aren't many things that can make a loving parent to give away their infant child to complete strangers in military uniform. yet this option turned out to be preferable to having the baby learn 1st steps under the taliban. i've been, women, took the groups, promises to treat them fairly with a huge pinch of salt to me. but to take them is a tool order, even for american nationals who are beef and rude to the couple. airports. contrary to jo biden's claims, we have no indication that they haven't been able to get in trouble through the airport. we've made an agreement with the, with the taliban as far they've allowed them to go through and they're interested in and go through. so we know of no circumstance where american citizens are carrying an american passport are trying to get through to the airport. we are aware that some people,
1:05 pm
including americans have been harassed and even beaten by the taliban. this is unacceptable and we made it clear to their designated telephone leader by joe biden is far from the only person taking the flack when i'm going to stand collapse to us . vice president campbell harris went abruptly silent that despite previously heralding herself as one of the look of motives before the pull out to date, this is her only comment on the evacuation chaos were closely monitoring the situation in afghanistan. oh, priorities to continue evacuating us citizens, special immigrant visa applicants and vulnerable guns out of the country. the german authorities are scorched for evacuating beer before local staffers, who risked their lives working for the military and up to that relatives of a do, each of villa correspondents have been killed by the hardliners as they are right now trying to find the reporter himself. john, hello, angle americo,
1:06 pm
had to openly admit that the african nation building experiment was a mistake. i just didn't succeed and aren't accomplished. as we had planned. that the realization and the bitter one is terrifying for the millions of afghans who supported the more free society and who with the support of western states. strong for democracy, dictation and women's rights, and made important progress. prisons, foreign secretary use edge to step down as the media alleged, he did not help. i'm going to interpreters for the u. k. army escaped the country before the taliban takeover and possible revenge attacks. and all of this is happened with smallest scandals like the possibility that the evacuation might not be free for americans. and amid all of this, it appears the u. s. leadership still does not have a single clue how to contain the fall out of this disastrous withdrawal. i cannot
1:07 pm
promise with the final outcome will be we don't have the capability to go out and collect of large numbers of people. 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 u. s. 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 the neo conservative to run u. s. foreign policy is that it's going to make them harder to continue. so there needs to be
1:08 pm
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. now, many people weren't lucky enough to get a flight out of cabal this week. we heard from a german national, who's currently stuck in the country with his afghan fiance. and i just got set up . i'm a german citizen. throughout the day i stay in constant contact with the 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. and she's a citizen of afghanistan. we hope 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 are situation. mikey worse. if they find out that
1:09 pm
my fiance is engaged or married abroad once we arrive safely in germany, 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 originals of all of our documents in our hands. let us finally leave this caliphate. give me my fiance permission to enter germany while confusions as rain at the airport in the city of can pull daily life there has all ground to a halt. a local journalists took us on a tow also several days that the call will see the capital off. i've gone to some fall into the column, and it seems that the sales, the city is quite sharp, that you are seeing you here. they're all clues. the bonds, the restaurant, the supermarket did all cruise and if you see this region here, it's a completely all wired 3. if you compare it with the year before we do
1:10 pm
a month before, before it's all about capture this, it was a very rock city. it's what the, what these areas, in fact a very rough area of call, but now it's very looking very why we will our majority of the stomach, him out in the press kind of frog i talk to people and call them that they are protected by the ton of on w w w. i also say that it's not about leadership. i have all the to the fight as that they don't have permission to enter any houses or to any to search. i know how busy they are not allowed to interpret any houses or inquiry on the government. people know i'm here in the checkpoint of a ton of money in public. i booked us with command of the check point. that's how they can show us 3 people and what they are saying. what did people come up? my name is above the rock mancha chime. i'm the manager hit in the land. the camera . it has been 18 or 20 years that we've been in the mountains. now we've captured capital city,
1:11 pm
i hope you are not set and we have not great of the problem for the terrible people . now i see the shops and markets are closed. what's the message to the shopkeepers and owners of the market? look as i do what a good will given them freedom should common open their shop. there is no problem for them. is the fight in finished and have dentist fighting has finished and again, this done loads had animals before. this is gone. now we should come together and save our country. this is one of the couple international airport get lots of people are just got here to get charles to get inside of the airport. was it the security forces that they don't give permission? anyone to get inside of the airport. now i'm going to interview with one of the guys who was waiting for long time, but he couldn't find the child to get inside of the airport. so how long have you been behind this gate? been around 3 days. there were people that stormed the airport with the certificate
1:12 pm
for an english course. people went with electricity bills, but those of us with the real documents couldn't get inside. i have my special immigrant visa which has been accepted and approved, but i still can't get in sight getting well the taliban takeover has revived. major concerns about the inflow of migrants into europe with the u. officials opening, fearing a repeat of the 2015 crisis when more with when more than a 1000000 flooded into the block, austria leader has today repeated his firm opposition to taking asylum seekers. despite the chief ursula on the line just the day before stating its europe's moral duty to help africa is to the absolute est, clearly opposed to us now, voluntarily taking in more people. and that will not happen during my chance from the ship. i'm not of the opinion that we should take in more people quite the opposite. that's legal. i think it is very important. we all for legal ways to those who have to flee afghan is down because of their conviction. we must now
1:13 pm
offer them safe ways to leave the country and be accepted. and as i mentioned, while i also this way hungry said it won't make it. citizens pay for what he called floored american decisions. greece is migration minister in the country once again become europe, refugee gateway, and the french president, amanew micron called on the members to coordinate a response against irregular migrate re flows. even germany, the state that took the most migrant in 2015 does, that ask, understands neighbors must i take the assign him see because and that the whole block agrees with that policy. however neighboring to stan and inspect his stand have taken practically no african refugees. just 14 and 13 migrant respectively. let's get more in this now for the tower. nice. well, she's a former australian foreign minister and you're very welcome. karen, from your point of view, what you may think of what's being said in europe this week, many countries coming in and saying that we really don't want any more migrants, doesn't matter where they come from,
1:14 pm
even from off can stand. good evening when it's so only and more fragmentation more deeps let's inside the european union data we have 6 years ago. so what's the solution g saying? because one policy put forward is that some refugee smith can stand, should be accommodated in neighboring countries to afghanistan. is that not just passing the book? exactly, you put it in one frame. it's not very well the reflected suggestion. i would say for domestic consumption, whoever receives systematic consumption. but it's a headline, it's nothing more and there has to be a much better reflected action. so what do you think they could do or should do, given the current political climate about this in europe slash?
1:15 pm
i mean i personally, i believe that we won't see more than bilateral or trial actual agreements. johnson macro had overcome so that in 2016, 17 acknowledging that there is no such thing as a common european asylum policy migration policy. we don't have it. and even so, if the commission create new terms like save migration, corey's ortho whatsoever, you have immediate rejection of these new terms, some twisting introduction of maybe a politic concept that could turn into a legal law and the we have to election in france. we have elections in germany, so nobody really at that mean for, for that issue to tackle it even low. you know,
1:16 pm
when you look at what's happened over the last 20 years, enough canister, many people would say, what's it achieved? and surely. now you need to do something when it's very clear, you need to help them. afghans will ask, understand enough to understand, leave country, why you just sitting back. i mean, the pressure is very great for you to do something, can't just sit back on it and say, it's not our problem. now you're free right? and to, to burden to read. i'd say to have to be some sort of region i solution is definitely all the, not the way through certain countries have announced that they will from a rated like that pick and choose certain groups of political refugees. frowns announced they would like to take our 2 journalists, some other they would like to take medical doctors that are in area and they would
1:17 pm
like to pick and choose. now, this is what actually alina, my, and me go, asylum seeking mechanism, should be involved. but i don't see it happen in this case. i mean, where were people righteous, the where can people book the sites and get the family ready for moving? so always, you know, i fear that we will see more announcements. them really well. the reflected action is a way i to this, to encourage those countries that neighbor ask honest and to act is holding areas if you like. so refugees go into these areas and then their, their application is process because it's very difficult to they will visually in afghanistan at the moment. yeah. well, we have seen that in old kind of was whether it was the wreckage dilemma ever since $948.00, whether a level trophy cheese,
1:18 pm
i mean the list is long and we have also seen that whenever there is such a mess this in flux be from a neighboring, from the regional country, if it has, it carries the risks to, to stir up internal instability. we have seen it. and so that countries, the immediate neighbors have always been affected by the situation of going on in particular that you're wrong or the last decade. and i don't see many of the guns now trying to catch a flight to get out of gun is done. really sit and wait in to clean it the biggest in order to go to the america of the year. i think this is really just the headline of today, but we, when we wish we simply cannot reduce the whole african backup only to this migration issue it's, it's a much,
1:19 pm
much wider is doing when it comes to security question. when it comes to political responsibility and as i've stated the means over a text it's, it's a complete lot of trustworthiness of credibility to all of these cor, well you're in terms of human rights respects and sexual. and i think the destruction of an image is which will fall on our hats in the, even much more noisy, a wait, and then, and then the car and my question christ, that's interesting what, what sort of things would you expect to have from them? because how we did, in fact, for example, li, forum poll, see going forward when you have to interact with countries and they look at the situation. what's happened in afghanistan? it's, it's a deep sense of uncertainty. what
1:20 pm
is, what is the world of that word of honor? i don't see if there's a contract worth. it will have tremendous repercussions. although on, on, on the relation in, in south. it's not an asia because we have, we have heard about this and she was gone yet not like 75 again and again. but it's much worse than both the song vietnam and $975.00. where today and much more interconnected world. we have tremendous arsenal. of weapons was rein, combat combatants were there. let me remind me of secretion in $1092.00 where and the us invaded tamaya over without even taking notes off of what the situation on the ground was. special forces were drained by the us in early $990.00,
1:21 pm
later on at the stage as the pirates at the horn of africa. and that's most trouble enough for international trade. now what we see in terms of spill older effect perception of the west bar enlarge this, this, this, i think when would be the real, really big repercussion that in my assessments will be much, much worse than the whole migration issue. it's their challenge, karen, to salvage something here and offer effective humanitarian a to the people in afghanistan, all practically speaking. it's not just impossible, given the situation that sarah, the moment i'm not under crowd, i mean you're into your there. i tell us several people on the ground and then they can re to the picture of total confusion. others say people who have remained in couples,
1:22 pm
they taliban or some our contribution to some other civilizations. well conflicting perception. but for us, you have to provide people with, with the basic supply because i mean this is the system morrow komatt to, to, to wherever they will arrive. but i mean that the entire decide who to, to give money to find people in your will have to recruit people to do this if you minutes area and work into your organizations. and other than that that, that would be difficult. i mean, and we have seen a tremendous degree of in competence, and i'm not surprised by this high degree of competence and knowing a little bit of some of the organizations from the inside of the people who are now
1:23 pm
in the profile criticism. it's it's, it's an absence of sense of realism. it's an absence of being able to think in the category of your politics, of human nature and of history. and all that i would say is an emblematic symbol of, of what is still to come in terms of tremendous crisis of what the west has claimed to stand for profound statement, then we're going to end it. that's a really good to talk to you tonight. we have an after time, but that was kind of nice. so a former austrian foreign minister, thanks very much for coming on to our. com. now in the face of the overwhelming is mister fence, if afghans have rallied across the country to show resistance to the taliban regime
1:24 pm
in couple crowds did march through the streets denouncing the country where they chanted anti taliban slogans and carried afghans flags that have become a symbol of defiance novice unverified video to support to show a taliban fighter seizing afghan flags from a man from a man in the street. then slapping him in the face of women also took part in the protest. it's fear that they are among the most threatened in today's taliban controlled afghanistan. since to tell you, cobra street have seen cabal showing female faces have been painted over p. d. alarms have closed their doors, fearing reprisals to local say. women have practically disappeared from the streets with only a very small number, daring to come out to toll or that despite the taliban promises to respect women's rights. it does seem. afghans don't have confidence in those words. we don't want to go back 20 years. they used force against us and broke our
1:25 pm
smartphone, and they told us that you can not raise your flag. they told us, go and sit at home. your women be ashamed. was the one who forced to protest against him to show the world that the taliban government does not have any value. not just for us. it has no legitimacy in the world. will any push back against the new regime? does faith, heavily armed forces? because taliban now also has a huge arson of high tech weapons, were billions of dollars originally gifted by the pentagon to the afghan army, the u. s. national security advisor hands had questions and all the items that were left behind. those black hawks were not 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 by. certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the taliban. and obviously we
1:26 pm
don't have a sense that they are going to readily hand it over to us at the airport. well footage from the week does show that taliban fighters were parading round, coupled with american made rifles and military vehicle acquisitions. washington is still trying to estimate just time much weaponry and tech has fallen into the hands of the insurgents. and to add insult to injury to the taliban also created the face of oppertunity, one of its special commander unit stake, tighten us get recreated ny conic world war. 2 photo of troops raising the american flag. speaking to ours, he's going underground, comedian, political commentator, jimmy, to shed his shed this advice for washington to avoid such humiliation. do you want a us intervention, a military intervention? tell me about which country you want the u. s. intervening and i think it's about, i mean, because a lot of people are saying we need to stay in africa and help the women. i say,
1:27 pm
how about in the united states takes about 3 or 4000 troops and invades 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. how about we invade america? and we start trying to help america. when is, when is america gonna 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 want to have women, a living wage in the united states give them health care and give them an education . ironically, that's what the government up gavin ended up until we invented the taliban. if you took that there are 600000 according to statistics or 600000 homeless people in america, a lot of those are women. lot of those are children. now if you gave them each
1:28 pm
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 to get it then. so the united states ever really cared about women. they could spend a $7200000000.00 to take care of the homeless people in the united states. give them a 1000 that they won't do it. so yet joe biden, nancy pelosi jobs humor. mitch mcconnell, all the leaders on 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. i just hop on state and even here mostly be watching weekly. that's why we're things looking for the moment. we're back again with more stories and about half an
1:29 pm
the the problem driven by adrian shaped control. those in me, i think we dare to ask me ah,
1:30 pm
the at the height of the 2020 corona virus pandemic mass media really covered stories from africa. the world was more interested in kind of it, and africa had far less infected people in europe. so one story got people's attention. newspapers reported that kenya was having an elephant baby boom journalists linked the unprecedented surge and the elephant birth rate, to tourists being restricted from the park. they said it was the most positive side of a low down. but kind of it had nothing to do with it. ah, ah, prince, to my biggest issue. so you see 2018. we go to pretty good green and we have
