that artificial intelligence, the point obviously is too great truck rather than fear i would take on various jobs with artificial intelligence. we'll summoning the demon a robot, most protected phone existence was thought about how y'all was going to have a message to any possible invader. but anyone who looked denise them with bad intention, they will face what the united states has face today. america's hasty departure from afghanistan leaves the country in the hands of the very taliban regime. the washington promised to overthrow 20 years ago. by the chaos and bloodshed during the final days of the us military presence,

the biden administration continues to praise the outcome of america. the longest war the foreign powers raised to get the last of the people out of cobbled hundreds of guns they want employed has been left without protection for bring separate to who works for the british embassy tells us the case, but trade it's local stuff is a bit i will put them in a very good way. i had a more than my car. you know i tuesday afternoon that for here most got my name is colleen bray with the world news from the international law. save august then means i've got this done is now entering a new phase in its history. but under the same old taliban rule, the same regime that was in charge 20 years ago. the last us military flight took off from cobble apple monday night bringing to an end america the longest wall.
9:02 am
oh, it remembers of the taliban inside the airport? some appear. well equipped in what may be american give. just a small part of the trophies guarded from us troops during the steve retreat, abandon helicopters could also be seen inside hangers. the telephone now have full control over the countries key transport hub. it's witnessed chaotic and deadly seen since the millet and swept back the power across afghan. it's down and now of the 2 decades of a u. s. military presence, the group has issued a very clear warning marble. how y'all was going to have a message to any possible invader. but anyone who looks to get this done with bad intention, they will face what the united states has face today. there is something of a sense of relief here and that sense of relief isn't because the americans have gone not that relief is being felt by diplomats,
9:03 am
but by civilians here. and that is no more incidents took place as the evacuation was wrapping up at capital airport. the taliban went into the airport proper. merely minutes, minutes after midnight, minutes off the american troop. the last american troops at campbell airport. and then i've got to start had taken off and off to for hours and hours we heard the rule of god and 5 machine gun and we, we, we thought we had even had a large caliber far from all directions in the city. that was the taliban. celebrating laboratory godfather, they are now in control of the airport. they went in, they inspected the place, allegedly, they're now in possession of even more aircraft left behind by the ass, gotten military left behind by the united states and its allies. though from what we've heard, many of the, the jets,
9:04 am
the aircraft at the airport were made dysfunctional so, so they were purposefully destroyed, tied go, tied with by evacuating american troops. nevertheless, the tyler, but he's celebrating and they held a ceremony at the airport saying that now we finally won at hungary love you by the way. thank god. first of all, i would like to say that again, son is finally in every sense, free and independent. and our forces are controlled. the military and civilian parts of the airport. normal activity of the airport will start both in the civilian unit as rules, the military unit resume and see how much all of capital completely uncontested. they are in control of most of a i've gotten saw there is only one province that is still holding out against the taliban. the, even that even that is surrounded as for the evacuation. what the united states has been saying, well, aside from them, praising almost tied about,
9:05 am
saying that they were helpful and useful and holding a firm perimeter around the airport. the united states sees this evacuation what happened here as a success. this is been a massive military, diplomatic and military and undertaking one of the most difficult donations history and extraordinary feet of logistics and coordination under some of the most challenging circumstances. imagine that we will continue our relentless efforts to help americans foreign nationals and atkins. leave afghanistan, if they choose, we worked with pencils to evacuate and relocate and work alongside us. and our particular risk reprice. we've gotten many out, but many are still there from the perspective of a humanitarian point of view. it is arguable that this was the success that, that trumping it to be, because so many people, hundreds of american citizens,
9:06 am
the load never mind european citizen. just yesterday we met people who had british possible to have australian passports. and that was just a small number of people that we met and they've all been left behind. they were unable. and even if, if they were able to get to the airport, they weren't allowed inside either by the title or by the troops. then the nato troops there who wouldn't let them in the spot them showing papers and passports they wouldn't let them in until they had prior approval forms and flips of paper as we heard from some people. so. so definitely many people have been behind desperate people who, who believe there is a real threat to their lives, to the security and safety of their families. and there is, it is absolutely clear. there is no idea among them how to get out of the country. what the future holds, whether the taliban will abide by the promise of amnesty, the taliban itself is said that yes, these people will be allowed to leave and molested the taliban of the obviously
9:07 am
once into the actual recognition. and that recognition will only come if they act now in a civilized manner if they allow people to leave. nevertheless, only time will tell if these people will be able to get out of i've got to start with the biden team, still painting the outcome of the 20 year mission as a success. there are 90, retired us generals and admirals, demanding that the defense secretary and joint chiefs of staff stepped down over the chaotic withdrawal. they've called it a reputational disaster and stressed that it would fracture trust in the us among its allies. the loss of billions of dollars in our advance military equipment and supplies fall into the hands of our enemies is catastrophic. the damage to the reputation of the united states is indescribable. we will be seen for many years as an unreliable partner in any multinational agreement or operation. trust in the united states is irreparably damaged, and it's not just retired. top brass, have
9:08 am
a speaking out, want senior us marine has been dismissed after accusing the government of botching the african stam pullover speaking in the wake of the cobble apple bombing. stewart shell posted a video on social media that went viral. reason people are so upset on social media right now is not because the marine on the battlefield. let someone down. people are upset because they're senior leaders, let them down. and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we mess this up. all of these people are supposed to advise, and i'm not saying we've got to be in the in afghanistan forever. but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate barger airfield, the strategic berries before we evacuate? everyone? did anyone do that? and when you didn't think to do that, the thing when raise their hand and say we completely mess this up on just hours after posting that clip. that's kind of kind of shallow said that he'd been relieved of duty over a lack of trust and confidence in his ability to command. however, he did get an outpouring of support online. and on sunday he posted another video
9:09 am
saying he's also resigning his commission, adding i forfeited my retirement all entitlements. i don't want a single dollar. we also heard from former us marine corps intelligence office, a scott ritter who thinks that someone needs to be held responsible for what's happened in afghanistan. first of all, the issue accountability is 100 percent, correct? i mean, we have a failure of policy that seems to be driven by political objectives that overrode operational reality. there has to be accountability, or else there, there will be no lessons learned from this in this take. so on this point, illusion occur sheller is 100 percent correct? i take umbrage it away. he got his message across. he was a really relief for cause because his job was to train young marines to be prepared to fight in future conflicts. his job was not to be critical of policies passed by is senior leadership. while i sympathize with his position,
9:10 am
he had no right to do this while he was uniform and he was fired. justifiably so we cannot have a situation where military officers feel that they have a duty to be critically outside of the chain of command about policies. they disagree with, or else we'd have chaos, an anarchy. we wouldn't have the will discipline military that we, that we need if we're going to actually, you know, maintain our, the national security states. meanwhile, republicans, according for joe biden to resign or face impeachment over his handling of the gunners down, pull out party members, say the president failed at his job, left hundreds of americans in our lives behind and made the world less safe because of his decision a. he's a look at how buying himself reacted to the afghan crisis along the way. the mission to degrade the chairs tread about cod in afghanistan in kilo some been lot and was
9:11 am
a success. i believed that our presence in that ghana span should be focused on the reason we went in the 1st place to ensure afghan it would not be used as a base from which to attack our homeland again. we did that. we accomplish that objective force, take any questions or go ahead and ask janice and i'm not going to forget jared, a deal. the president trump negotiated with italy was never a good time to withdraw us forces. if he succeeds in getting americans to walk through the 5 stages of grief,
9:12 am
you know, we've seen him expressed the denial, the pounding of the fish. there's, there's an anger, a walking away from the podium when he's asked questions about afghanistan. there's a negotiation. well, maybe it can be not that bad. well, we'll see where we go with policy. there's, there's a depression, and right now it's less walk the american people over through the end of the process to accept. he also said terrorism as metastasized, and there's this excuse with the global war on terror to send more troops to more countries. so i don't think this is over because biden is doing his job as an actor is getting that emotional by. and i am very afraid that if, if biting successfully walks americans through this emotional process, he is going to be able to suck us in. do a sustain global war on terror that could last another decade. after stating power,
9:13 am
the taliban announced a general amnesty in afghanistan for all citizens, including officials who worked under the previous government. but with reports growing of taliban reprisals. anybody who links to foreign forces may well be in danger. we spoke to a former interpreter who worked for the british embassy and cobbled during the 20 year campaign. he asked that his name and location be kept secret. rehab a lot of the government because as a powerful government we never thought of we will in the situation when be for us, i don't know why did it like why without protection, without almost one week or more than that. i don't have an issue. i'm a, i'm keep changing my, my place. we went from the scheme from the government and the movement people to the airport. but we couldn't even see it because
9:14 am
they were feeding people like saying if i'm thinking and doing and some of the 1st visit to me by a piece but also be like, you know, with this being, even though i think i tried, many parents call them even then i have to show another when i know what to do, but that they're not getting the response. i lost everything with the hope of the i will, i will buy from the color bands deployed extra guards and surrounded cobble airport . the only colorado around the country after last week's bombing, which killed at least a 170 last toll through a crowd throwing bodies into a nearby open sewer people up and gathering up the airport for days trying to flee the taliban return. and that format interpreter again, talked to us about the blast and accuses the british government of betraying the
9:15 am
local staff. from one aim. when he went away, you can smell the blood of the last minute that i saw by my own eyes, the body. i saw there divided my way. i'm going to bid and you couldn't, couldn't even walk with a lot of what is inside the water. i'm not a, don't go on the wall. so i a very good off in terms of the and also that it wouldn't be clued in there was no way to do. i did inform the can be informed you okay about before this happens, but they do that after that the time was too late for the it is a bit res. i work for them in a very good way. i hope in a more than my conference is the 1st day when the from the clear, you know, not
9:16 am
a we will not on those people who will be post not handing over government options, but i don't think i may be missing. how's the thought going occupied my house and they are going to tell me all i can do the right to survive. but when they will build up the i know the only night we are cars. we didn't know if they help us. we believe that the other one will kill the most. that's boy, they're not even they're not even talking with him while british foreign secretary dominic rob is admitted. he doesn't know exactly how many u. k. nationals are still in afghanistan. he's facing growing anger over the handling of the british evacuation mission and put the number left behind in the low hundreds. during the recent interview. look, of course, when we are lament the fact that anyone would be left behind. i know that the number of u. k. nationals,
9:17 am
the particular responsibility of the foreign office is now down at a very low level specific, well, low hundreds given that we've taken in total $5000.00 out. and most of those are difficult cases where it's not clear around the eligibility of their undocumented, believe us or not dominate ra then went on to say that no other department and the united kingdom has handled the crisis in austin east on any better than the foreign office, of course, the very department that he is in charge of now, that has rates you must consent and raise many eyebrows. among many colleagues in the hall of westminster close dominic roles has been long embroiled over the last few weeks in many controversial issues. and the handling of the crisis in afghanistan because of course, when koppel fell to the taliban some 2 weeks ago, dominic rob was nowhere to be seen. in fact, finally seen sunbathing abroad on holiday with his family. but not just that,
9:18 am
allegedly he declined many phone calls, he did not pick up the phone to his counterpart in on, on paki stall, which is lead to many people pointing. many thing is of blame. dominant rob. so the foreign secretary to go a while during an international crisis of this magnitude is nothing short of a shameful. i think it was amazing, staggering that the foreign secretary was still on holiday, while i canister was collapsing to the taliban. you've got to be on duty during that sort of period where we're so deeply and intimately involved in it. we haven't heard from the foreign secretary and about a week despite this being the biggest single foreign policy dissolve this and suez . so i don't know what the foreign office is thinking. while his handling of the crisis in afghanistan has really gone from bad to worse. in fact, he's now saying and advising that, anybody that still need to leave ask on a stone would probably be better off, going to a neighboring country to try and return to safety here in the united kingdom.
9:19 am
however, of course, i easier said than done considering the taliban operating board checkpoints and really is putting a lot of trust in the taliban to uphold that side of the deal. allowing any safe passage to anybody that wishes to leave. it does come. of course, the britain promised that all you k citizens all u k. nationals, and indeed all of those assisted and the occupation assisted the british army and the occupation over the last 18 years would be able to return to the united kingdom . however, as the weeks and days then passed, many ministers in parliament was saying, not everybody would be able to get out. and now dominic rob, as we heard, is it missing? he has no idea how many british citizens still remain in afghanistan. but is it actually maintain that the u. k has done a good job and that people should stop attacking the u. k for its own as occupation process. anyone getting back passing briefings either at me or the foreign
9:20 am
commonwealth and development office is frankly not credible. and it is deeply responsible. we have absolutely been on this, and you can see we have been on this. why? because we have got 17000 people out. well, it's not just the u. k. citizens that are in need of returning here to the united kingdom, but many, many afghans are actually desperate to flee from the taliban takeover as well and have been e mailing the united kingdom, the foreign office trying to get some help. so what we're hearing now is the minister has admitted that emails from schools of people have not only not been replied to a process, but not even being read by many, many ministers here in westminster. meaning that many people are still stuck in the region and fearing for their lives without any sense that they will ever be able to get out. despite all of this, dominick rob the foreign secretary is still maintaining. they were real, a tangible gains from the 18 year occupation when colleagues all around him over
9:21 am
the past few weeks have even been pushed to the point of floods, of tears in the house of commons, saying the absolute opposite to dominic rob. now he will indeed be stopped in a foreign affairs select committee. that's an opportunity for many m p 's to really grill the foreign secretary off his handling of this crisis. no doubt, it really will be a grilling, indeed that tomorrow. but many people are really questioning how on the dominic rob is in this position still in this position, a crucial role. but at a critical time. okay, this is all on 2 other knees and a couple of minutes does a bleak cobra warning for europe from the world health organization or russian. scientists say they're all the way to developing a medication to treat those who get sick and that's off the break. oh i
9:22 am
use i me ah ah, i use join me every thursday on the alex summon 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
9:23 am
the the, the, the ah, hello again, the european union's recommending that the united states be removed from safe trouble lists over a surgeon cove in 19 cases. meantime, the world health organizations warning of a decline and vaccine uptake vaccination is a right, but also a responsibility. the stagnation and vaccine uptake in all region is of serious concern. no, that public health and social measures are be relaxed in many countries. the public's vaccination acceptance is crucial if we are to avoid greater transmission, more severe disease in caritas in debts and they bigger disc,
9:24 am
that's new variance of concern will emerge. vaccine scepticism and science denial is holding us back from stabilizing this crisis. it serves no purpose and is good for no one. w h have also predicts that more than 200000 people in europe could potentially die from covert and related health issues. by december. with phase the new school year will exacerbate the situation further. and while the delta strains reported to have more serious outcomes, one lab here in russia is working on countering the virus altogether. mia 19 and new medications specifically developed to counter covert 19 is going through the 2nd phase of clinical trials. and it's expected to be registered next month, equal to donald has the details. when russia registered the world 1st vaccine for over 19 sputnik green. it was initially met with skepticism both abroad and at home
9:25 am
phase will later put aside by well months of successful use all over the world and multiple publications in science journals. so now another institute aims another record, and that is registering the world's 1st effective medication for cobra. maintain the drug cooled mir 19 is still in the early stages of testing. it's almost past face to clinical trials, but has already managed to drastically reduce coven 19 levels and subjects with the medication targets a certain parts of the sauce called to genome, which then undergoes certain modifications and this finally eliminated. so this medication effectively prevents this virus from replicating the pre clinical trials we carried out. so that mid 19 decreases the viruses, reproductive ability by 10000 times which the drug is about to undergo the most critical part of its testing on a large number of volunteers. the way mir 19 is supposed to be administered,
9:26 am
will be familiar to anybody who's suffering from asthma, for example, through an inhaler just like this one. because apparently it's the most effective way of targeting the virus. as we move this infection into the body through the upper respiratory tract. so we have to block this gateway for the virus. our testing prove that this method is more effective than others in tackling the virus . i'm told that the main challenge that scientists faced here was to make the drug target only the genetic material of the virus and not of the human host. it also doesn't when developing a medication that is based on 2 components. it's important to make sure that one of them doesn't prevent human genomes from functioning properly. on medication only blocks the viruses genome. we carried out a thorough analysis that is proven the safety of the medication. the 1st stage of clinical trials the poses no threat to healthy individuals. today, we are the 2nd stage of clinical trials, which involves people infected with covey. 19 our previous results reassures that
9:27 am
it will not cause any side effects. we hope that ultimately it will be allowed for youth and people from all age groups, starting from the elderly. the children. if mir 19 proves and safety and efficiency, it could be a game changing, ending the pandemic, and amid fears of another wave of infections looming. the medication is eagerly awaited not only here in russia, but japan and south korea have also apparently shown an interest in the drug makers done of reporting for the 1st infection by the delta. very, it was reported in india earlier this year, and it's now been detected in over a 130 countries. delta is highly contagious and can have a more serious outcome that other strains that one most research center describe the battle against the barrier. here in russia, which a double cuckoo after the delta variant emerged and essentially became the predominant
9:28 am
one. we had to look into his essence crate vaccine against that we will follow exactly the same part he pursued. when working on the job against the alpha stream, it will require various examinations pre clinical and clinical trials and so on. so now it's all unclear because koby 19 itself is a young no virus. it is changing all the time and we don't know when it's evolution will finally solve. we don't know whether we'll be dealing with one strain which will ultimately supercede the others with a number of strains. right now, our task is to identify and examine the existing strains that we can use them in drugs. ah, the thought mean you might, i mean, as with the vaccine against the variance, the introduction of a new one will take around a year. you should bear in mind that this timeframe is absolutely unconventional. and last time the process was accelerated due to the regular treat incentives. on the last time we prepared reports of our performance and
9:29 am
received 100 requests from abroad, seeking to produce our senses, vaccine known as covey vac. this issue raises 2 problems. first of all, the world is also played by lack of production capacity. secondly, there is a global shortage of such equipment. so these are 2 major constraints at we are not out of the woods yet. are we ok that should use for now for moscow i'm called embrace, but with your next update in a little over half an hour, i hope to see you then the psychiatric drugs are essential for millions of patients or are they they want that pill that they hope will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term they really work. the problem is in a long term, they're mostly disastrous. suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition it was meant
9:30 am
to treat instead of beneficial effects of these different medicines, any up to something wonderful, very often they're harmful effects and up to something terrible can pills, so of all ills or are we trying to mitigate life itself. i just think i was like i was just scared, scared, little girl of 24. and like me didn't have to be so complicated driven by adrian shaped by those in me.
