8:03 am
do 1018 and now and the difference is incredible. italy about g to be making a huge effort to job journalists. they gave us an interview. the 1st interview, the ministers, 1st interview, as the minister of information of, of got his thought was to a russian group of journalists. and he said that the taliban has changed. he assured that his assured that is, over the last 20 years, the taliban has learned many things. they've evolved that they're now able to govern a country with, with many different views. they've also said that the, the effort to rebuild, i've got to start the devastated country off the 20th war, could only begin once the americans and nato troops leave the airport. they say that there's, there's no alternative and unless they do that, they will be forced to make that very difficult decisions. that the political office, the minister told us, you also said that the taliban month, good relations with the united states withdraw with china, with europe,
8:04 am
with every one, all of their neighbors that there is no threat coming out of i've got to stop that . they don't want to exploit that ideology thing out onto their partners, as he said that the taliban also will honor any trade economic political agreements with the, with any other country before that in place now that they will abide by them according to, according to international law, well, the situation remains incredibly tense. there are still huge numbers of people at the airport still crushes. sometimes there's the taliban shooting in the air. there's troops, native troops inside the airport that, that is scaring away, would be refugees. people who don't necessarily have the papers that even those who have the papers and you are unable to get into the airport, whether they're not being let in by the taliban or not. being led by nato troops. american troops predominantly that while we were driving to the ministry of
8:05 am
information and back, we saw a huge number of people near a hotel and all of them had papers with them. at diety, there are rumors going around the capital, the western diplomat racial, someone else as setting up temporary offices in hotels or in, in buildings and stamping out these is there and some people said people are desperate. they heard what the united states, what and said, get to the airport more vacuum and they took them. but there was, this is something that the taliban results have said. they believed them. they believed that they'll get a better life in the west if they just managed to get to the airport in the end result is the huge mobs of people at the airport, the, the huge flash bulbs i would call them, of people turning up at random locations in the city, hoping that someone at the nearest room, hoping that someone will stamp a visa into their passports and they'll be able to be able to fly away. russia has also been lifting people from cargo by the tail stricken international airport for
8:06 am
russian military jets had been part of the operation rescuing 500 people from the country. they include citizens of russia, bella, luce, ukraine, and the scanner stance former soviet neighbor to just on oh, i know we hadn't expected the evacuation to go to this. well, it's been very good, crowded. it's usually taken 5 or 6 days to evacuate. we were told yesterday and today will already on the plan. ah, let me see, i want to think precious president and defense minister for taking us out of the
8:07 am
dangerous place and bring us to them. they fed us too many thanks to them done. oh, i distribute them we had to wear home and children can do for school. i went to the same cry ship, helping us in this situation because it's very difficult now to get to the airport with me. the situation on the straits. a council remains tennis with taliban fighters patrolling and armen vehicles and brandishing weaponry. there's also a cash crisis. long queues have been for me outside banks and hope they might reopen. they've been close for 10 days now. ever since the taliban swept to power. in the face of adversity, some citizens are adapting to the new reality and trying to earn a living this fund or a set up shop outside the abandoned us embassy. he's selling taliban flags,
8:08 am
bought the nearby market. while the u. s. sector states has confirmed 802000 people have been flowed out of afghanistan since the evacuation started. and although many more are unlikely to make it out by the looming august 31st deadline, antony blink and insist that they will not be forgotten. there is no deadline on our work to help any remaining american citizens who decide they want to leave to do so. along with many afghans who stood by us over these many years, the expectation of the international community is that people who want to leave afghanistan after the u. s. military departs, should be able to do so. the taliban has repeatedly said there can be no extensions to that evacuation deadline and with just a few days to go now retired us army, colonel and right believes that only a tiny fraction of the population will be able to get out. the great majority of the 38000000 people that live in ghana, stan are not leaving the country. the ones that are primarily are the ones that
8:09 am
have worked with the united states government. and then there are some other afghans who saw the opportunity of going to another country. many afghans have left the country because of the lack of employment that will actually give enough money to support your family. but the people that have worked with the us government over the last 20 years, certainly feel that their lives may be in danger because it's all about may take retribution against them. well, 3 quarters of americans recently polled. now believe that afghan son will once again become a breeding ground, the international terrorist just like 20 years ago. and he said his darn off reports on what went wrong with the u. s. mission. gaston americans were promised a triumph. a whole generation was raised to the 2, no vows that the mission will be a success. we will win this conflict by the patient accumulation of successes. we
8:10 am
will disrupt this mantle and defeat al qaeda. while preventing, i've got to stand from again serving as a base for terrorists, but instead of 2 decades on the u. s. finds itself in the middle of an exodus of truly biblical proportions. the american military has evacuated more than 80000 people in less than 2 weeks as of ghana and crumbled under the advance of the taliban. the gall this scaled and pace is unprecedented. 80000. yet this still swarms of people besieging the airport and bearing the fact that despite all efforts the u. s
8:11 am
. withdrawal is still a catastrophic failure, especially to those who spend months and years thousands of miles away from family and friends trying to build an american dream. amid the sounds of ghana and ah ah, when i joined the military, i was pretty ideal as i wanted to go out and served my country right out of high school. i had sent back with my knees and stuff and i kept trying to get into mess and i finally did and i wanted to serve my country and. ready all that stuff, man, i'm 35 years old now it's wildly different now it's you see things they really are and i feel like i feel like the worn out again to stand in and of itself.
8:12 am
didn't have to last as long as we went there to go for okay, to get those as possible. and then it should have been just that and the worship ended sometime in the 2009 drag on the way it has. the ross school is a veteran organizations, apparently seeking to secure a chat with the commander in chief who so far has remained delusive. failing to meet obligations to these against would not be a national security risk. it would also condemn veterans and survivors of the conflict and have gunnison to lifetime of moral injury. but the bite in administration is taking a stand here. the mission is a success and that's the heel they are ready to die on. what you do is you adjust and we've adjusted, and while we are continuing to face genuine challenges, we believe we are making progress. i would say that this is and now on track peter to be the largest air lift and us history. so,
8:13 am
and that is bringing american citizens out, it is bring our asking partners out. it is bringing allies out. so no, i would not say that is anything but a success. well, it's not hard to tell how convincing they actually are. jo biden's approval ratings plummeted in the wake of this operation. and the majority of americans, well, they remain unfazed by the supposedly high evacuation figures. and believe biden is not doing enough to help those stuck in taliban ruled of ghana. stan, this isn't the mitigated dissolves. to of epic proportions, that should be a stain on buttons, presidency. i think he's going to have blood on his hands for what they did. another bitter ring the allies in the fact that the us invaded afghanistan to get rid of the terrorist threat that was emanating from the country. yet now the hasty evacuation has raised concerns that some people who bought at american plains weren't vetted properly. yeah,
8:14 am
people are upset with people. i talked to our ag it's completely botched. there is no. ready political will, and there is still americans trap in afghanistan and still haven't been able to get to go. and as far as lessons learned from, i mean other previous words. i mean, if we haven't learned from vietnam, if we didn't learn from, you know, from iraq in their early 2 thousands. i mean, we're just going to continue to make the same big mistakes because they were not the ones that are pocketing the mit and were just being used for the will of the m i c. and that's and that's what i'd say about that. the 2 decades of america and i've gotten a stan wrapped up with a resounding fiasco and one can only guess how much more time it will take to mitigate whatever fall out it is still to bring. as we saw in acres report there, all the veterans of voice, their anger at how the situations played out. we also heard from iraq war veteran
8:15 am
and former marine sniper says, you can check it. he believes that entering afghanistan in the 1st place was a mistake. the real failure of this war enough can expand or whatever you want to call it. a conflict was explicitly pointed out in the dentist and papers where a lot of generals basically spoke about the fact that there was no mention that had no mission. they didn't know what they were doing there, and they didn't know what they were going to do in the future anyway. so yeah, so of course i think, i think not pulling out of just even invading up. dennis sam was a radius taylor. historically, no one has been ever able to conquer up down. and so do you think that military us know that child and more able to succeed in iraq, we're going to succeed and janet spend that? so that's really funny. so the chaotic withdrawals from afghanistan put the us at odds with some of its allies. joe biden is rejected calls coming from the u. k. and
8:16 am
of the european countries for the evacuation to be extended beyond the 31st of august deadline. but the u. k. foreign sector insist that the circle, special relationship with washington does remain strong. looking at events yesterday in the g 7 summit is a special relationship over foreign secretary. mary coast isn't. it's matters huge . okay, let's cross live to london now are corresponded, knows k, partridge, k. good afternoon. britain apparently has failed to persuade america to extend the evacuation deadline. where does that leave the trans atlantic relationship? was we heard u. k. foreign secretary dominate. rob says britain's failure to persuade the us to extend the evacuation from afghanistan, doesn't mean the special relationship is over, but it has left a bitter taste in the mouth, and joe biden has been harshly criticized. the u. s. president says,
8:17 am
staying longer in cargo would raise the risk of an attack. why is logic state and strain a tenuous working relationship with the taliban? but a former u. k commander says the terrorist threat now coming from us on the stone is worse than before. 911 and biden should face and military court. i don't believe prison button should be impeached. he's the commander in chief of the us armed forces. he's just essentially surrendered to the taliban. he shouldn't be in paste. he should be court martialed for betraying the united states of america, and the united states armed forces were body also being condemned by am pcsing parliament, some calling his criticism of the afghan army shameful mt to buy a cell which he served in afghanistan says the special relationship is not what it was gone, why britain didn't sound to us, but the harshest criticism the fight and have come from former prime minister, tony bless you took britain into afghanistan 2 decades ago. it is so obvious, this isn't to withdraw from again. his son in this way,
8:18 am
was driven not by grand strategy, but by politics. we did it in a, b, d, and soon, mr. like political slogan about and in the forever wars as if our engagement in 2021 was remotely comparable to our commitment 20 or even 10 years ago. while it was british prime minister, winston churchill, who 1st used the term special relationship in $946.00 popular. when margaret fletcher and ronald reagan were in car. but the withdrawal from us on the stone has exposed the fact. it's an unequal relationship. and when the u. s says it leaving its allies must follow, and in a post breaks it world where trade deals a key, the british might protest, but ultimately need to keep their closest ally on side. bring his own religious life from london that saw correspondent k partridge. will do us withdraw from us, can astound this triggered phase of another refugee crisis. with the use home affairs chief now say that the block should try to prevent african refugees from flocking to its borders. we shall not wait until people end up at our external
8:19 am
border. the issue for today is to support a gun is in afghanistan to support of gone is in the neighboring country to prevent people from going on dangerous smugglers roots, while african refugees set their sights on your there's still no clarity on how many of them will be accepted to oliver reports, the european union is yet to set any figures for how many african refugees they intend to take in. we'll have been clear though, is european leaders saying they have no intention of seeing a repeat of 2015 refugee crisis. we do not want to relieve what we experience in 2015. it is not the duty of the e. u o. levine, near to help them pay everyone on the planet who is fleeing instead of fighting for their homeland fight. chris foster has the 2nd biggest community of africans in europe,
8:20 am
much more than other you states with only sweden having more than us. now we have many problems with in our country. we are not interested in becoming a failed states. the austrian chancellor says that no way more refugees will be arriving here on his watch. people on the streets of vienna though much more mixed in their opinions. i think we should take refuge here because we have space. we have the money, we have everything, no more actually just we have enough. and if we have the ability to help, why not everyone in europe hesitate, refugees, in fact demonstrations in support of doing more to help african refugees being taking place across the u. and in the u. k. the ah.
8:21 am
the banking 20152016. it was germany that took in the lion's share of refugees coming to europe. now the german president is calling for europe to act with compassion to the the need, but recognizes that there has to be limits. we cannot take in all the people seeking a better life for good reasons. but we must grant refuge to those who have the right to protection and asylum under our laws. the e. u wants refugees to seek shelter in neighboring countries and has pledged monies to hell plot. but those who decide to try and use the route through up galveston to europe through northern iran and across turkey set to face strong obstacles. ankara has approved the building of another 64 kilometers of border wall to keep refugees
8:22 am
out. we want to show the whole world that our board is on possible how biggest cope is that there is no migrant wave from afghanistan. we need to remind europe and france of this fact. europe, which has become the center of attraction for millions of people, cannot stay out of the refugee problem by hostile sewing its borders to protect the safety and well being of its citizens. moreover, with this attitude, europe not only violates international law, but also turns back on humanitarian values. turkey has no duty or responsibility obligation to the europe. refugee warehouse on a run in pakistan are already home to millions of african refugees, according to the united nations, germany, and france. and right here in austria also. hi, you're on the list. notably right down at the bottom though, is the united states switch as of 2020, it only take it in 2000 refugees from afghanistan with the current chaos. the result of the united states is decision to pull out the ship to be called to
8:23 am
washington to do more instead of letting its allies do the heavy lifting. this is a worldwide international problem just because we are the, the nearest, physically the nearest country. that the african refugees seek refuge to doesn't necessarily should mean that we should be the only one dealing with turkey has been housing millions of syrian refugees. now adding more to this, it's really hard to bear with us is undoubtedly the only source of what's going on that can stand right now. they have creates the best. and now they're trying to avoid the, the, the cost because they have already started, you know, lifting out people afghans to african countries. and they have also, in the past week or so have leaked, i'm calling for statements to the media from the back channels that the cherokee may, may accept. most of these refugees on behalf of to us and the, the turkish,
8:24 am
1st of all, research president, the form that everybody has said, you know, as totally was that they had never heard of it. the prison inmates in the u. k. could be roped in to cover staffing shortages in key industry. thankfully, road haulage and abbot was the government's considering releasing them on temporary license, the aim being to integrate them back into society. the lack of manpower is being blamed on both brags. it's in the pandemic and it's already seen gaps appearing on supermarket shelves. the current shortfall of around $90000.00 heavy goods vehicle drivers, placing unsustainable pressure on retailers and their supply chains. and it's not just the lack of transport, food, food produces in restaurants, a source outside of sources of manpower with currently about $40000.00 vacancies. according to the association of independent meets, the buyers may processes on the latest sex off in the government. if daily
8:25 am
prisoners can fill the gap, predict the right fit. and we look at corona irish prior to breaks it, we had a large number of a migrant workers based in the country who were to major processing sector. but we're not just looking at prisoners and prison leaders to fill the shortage. we are looking at service personnel through their recruitment agency, given that we've tried to recruit from a case, domestic labor force for months and months and months. and we still have a lots of vacancies. we have to look at other pools of labor that are available, the public response to the idea of prisoners plugging the shortfall of that mix on social media and also on the st. forced labor is morally wrong. an unpaid job merging animals on a killing reduction line wouldn't be 1st choice for paying them back. oh my god,
8:26 am
let them use prisoners. you mean you want slaves because that's what you're saying . for you. information under no circumstances can they be allowed to happen? the nightmarish combination of brazenly were slavery criminalizing of protest, and extraordinary hiring could cove it in meat processing plans makes this a recipe for dystopian, considering that there is a lot of jobs out in the market right now that are not taken by, as i can say, a lot of people does they thing that a bit like you know below them, feel like there are a lot of opportunities out there. why not to give a chance to people that have already of that time and out there and can actually do the walk and make their contribution. you have to give them a chance to be around to this in the society. i'm not to be put down and i look at them like they're not doing well. what is navy shows and things that like starting up the streets and things like that because it's getting productive work from like him to the co promise. some of the other come national grid as well they,
8:27 am
they employ police fish business. otherwise, let people out of prison. i'm going to job to go to the for the recall the crime. i mean supplies say that the prisoners pay and conditions are the same as regular employees. they also claim of inmates or model workforce. they didn't for you again when released prisoners under the release from temporary license program eligible for voluntary labor. if successful such a program could set a precedent for the increased use of prison labor, any initiatives that assists prisoners gain employment upon release means great themselves back into our communities is beneficial. ready for society, for ex offenders. so we welcome these initiative stuff. gave the opportunity for people to change their lives for the, for the benefit of everyone that oppertunity to 7 prisons again, skills and get them, gainful employment, partner release, which can help them change their lives, benefit society and reduce the overall re offending rate with
8:28 am
a 1000000 job vacancies and 92000 prisoners in the u. k. this sort of work is, might say, won't be a some, suggesting it's close to exploitation. the sets in the gray area when it comes to using cheap labor from a literally captive audience. saudi all see in london in the world news, israeli forces of fod tear gas rubber bullets and live ammunition to crowds of palestinian protests. as at the garza border, a number of people were injured, the demonstrators demanding israel remove its blockade of gossip and allow rebuilding work to begin after the area was pounded in an 11 day or so back in may in the us hundreds of been processed in new york against mandatory, cosy shot, demanding personal freedoms, dividing, decrying the jobs is experimental. city government is requiring school staff to have at least one dose by september. and in japan. activists confronted

8:30 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy plantation let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk to the news . welcome to the alex sam issue where we look at the history of political pulling in.
