serbian public is tired of the west interfering. unfortunately, this is a decision. this comes after many bad decisions in the last 9 years. and from the beginning of the so called brussels process. since the you started to mediate the negotiating process, it was always bias. and the result was that serbia gave up so many of the state authorities paid for it to the illegal for albania, separate this institutions. and in return, serbia didn't get anything. however, i must say that the situation is very grima for the whole being in independence. many states are rethinking their decision or record over recognition of the succession of customer thoughts here from serbia. and many

nato's chaotic withdrawal. ah, today mark's one year since britain bry. it's disastrous, 20 year presence in afghanistan to a close in the process, leaving many of those it employed and has now promised it will relocate behind me. i me why my hand man that you ation for just

11:20 pm
the pull out itself is remembered as one of the darkest days in nato's history. with british authorities showing a complete failure to understand the situation on the ground. here's archie's donald quarter, with more a colossal failure by the world's most formidable military power. one year ago, joe biden pulled the plug on the u. s. his 20 year long, military occupation of afghanistan, i concluded as timed it and america's longest war. it's time for american troops to come home. the troops began to pack their bags. there was no need to rush after all us intelligence had no doubts. there was time to spare to book come under pressure from the taliban in as little as 30 days and full to the extremist group within 90 days. but as the taliban advance showed no sign of abating washington began to realize it had not 90, not 30, but only a handful of days before the taliban would be at the capital's gates. on august
11:21 pm
15th kabul became the seat of power for these law mach emerett of afghanistan. ah, before they knew it, the americans were forced into the awkward position of having to cooperate with their decades old enemies to bring their people home. and this time, they had reason not to drag their feet 1st on evacuation. we agreed that we will continue to close our close corporation to get people out as efficiently and safely as possible. we are currently on a pace to finish by august the 31st millions of dollars of military equipment left behind collaborators abandoned into the hands of the taliban. those 90 days were a figment of the imagination of a u. s. intelligence. and because of their critical mistake,
11:22 pm
u. s. troops periodically fled with their tails between their legs. ah, let's not forget the subordinates of this us led coalition also reeled from the defeat. the international withdrawal from afghanistan has been a disaster in terms of planning, execution, and consequences for the united kingdom slider interests. even if the exact point at which the taliban ascendancy became inevitable could not have been predicted with certainty, the special committee believes that greater prudence and therefore,
11:23 pm
a more proactive approach was warranted in response to your scanning stance. clearly where sitting trajectory for washington's closest ally, the u. k. the political fallout was devastating. senior members of his party criticized both the decision to withdraw and the government's response to the rapid takeover of afghanistan by the taliban ministers have acknowledged being taken by surprise. and johnson and his foreign secretary dominic rob were forced to cut short their vacations to return to london. as the afghan capital cobble was taken. johnson's predecessor theresa may suggested the prime minister had hoped on a wing and a prayer. it'd be all right on the night in afghanistan and warned the u. k. now faces an increased terror threat due to the taliban and things were no better for the administration at the forefront of it. all. the survey conduct to before the u . s. military puller was completed, also finds that 69 percent of the public says the united states mostly failed in achieving its goals in afghanistan. the public is also broadly critical of the
11:24 pm
biden administration's handling of the situation in afghanistan, 42 percent, say it has done a poor job. decades went by trillions of dollars were spent. nearly 200000 people were killed all for the most well funded, most well equipped military in the world to fall before a ragtag insurgency. that in the end was more determined to win. there's more special coverage to come on the k arctic. let's draw from afghanistan here on our tea in the next month, but for now you can read extra stories on our web page in social media, and don't forget to leave a comment or to stay tuned. no nation, no nation has ever done anything like it in all the history. with

john and now to former american president george w bush, who has been boasting about his past foreign policies known for launching a u. s. lead preemptive invasion of iraq and afghanistan. he is now giving decision making lessons. i recognize very few people watching this will become present. i think you will find lessons in leadership. them applied to your line. i'm george w bush, and this is master class. if you've been looking to work on your leadership skills, then master class has the mentor for you. former us president george w bush is the newest talent acquired by the streaming platform. and he's featured
11:26 pm
in a lecture series on authentic leadership. yes, you heard that right? the same man who authorized the u. s. invasions of iraq and afghanistan is now lecturing the public on tough calls he has made during his career. and they are expected to pay for his advice. as president, sometimes i had information to the american people didn't know and therefore i did make decisions. what was best for the country on knowledge? there wasn't a range of all of a series, includes topics such as accountability leads to results. it doesn't give any tips on how bush himself has escaped accountability for the last 2 decades. although bush has been rehabilitated into a harmless grandfather who enjoys painting and sharing candy with former 1st lady michelle obama. his real legacy will never be forgotten by the millions of people who are impacted by his policies directly. in fact, the war on terrorism, bush declared in the aftermath of 911, is still active to this day. his pledge to show what
11:27 pm
a leader he was by giving the u. s. military a blank check to target. anyone they described as a terrorism suspect set in motion of foreign policy that has impacted countless lives without any form of due process. when looking at afghan, a stand alone, the u. s. invasion led to a 20 year along occupation after tens of thousands of civilians were killed in the war. the nation is now facing a humanitarian crisis. that is one of the worst in the world. then there's a rock, perhaps the leadership called bushes, best known for as it was made by his administration. and they're promised that they would find weapons of mass destruction. intelligence gathered by this and other government leaves no doubt that the iraqi regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised. this regime is already used. weapons of mass destruction,
11:28 pm
against iraq's neighbors and against iraqi people. no one was more shot and angry than i was when we didn't find the weapons. i had a sickening feeling every time i thought about it. i still do. not only did they not find the weapons, they claim to know so much about, but the war didn't and there, and it's estimated the early years of conflict resulted in the death of more than 1000000 iraqis. the results, the u. s. military is still present in iraq to this day, and it concerns that if they leave the government and the military they have spent years building will meet the same fate as the one. the u. s. spent 1000000000 supporting and afghanistan, of course, bush isn't using master class to finally be honest with the public. instead, he does that when he's delivering a paid speech and he includes the 40 and slip of the century. in is 2010 memoir. bush made the comment, we got things wrong in iraq, but the cause is eternally right. although nearly 20 years later,
11:29 pm
the public is left to wonder whether that cause was for those who stood to profit off of the conflict. because it certainly wasn't for the well being of the iraqi people. and when it comes to bush and his leadership abilities, he's not the only one who has walked free after accusations that he was complicit in a host of war crimes. that seems to be the standard for every member of his administration who sold the lie of w and d 's. and for the overwhelming majority of military members who indiscriminately killed civilians even when they were caught laughing about the lives they had just taken on camera, a late individuals with from this clients who are subjected to his reign of terror in the middle east to the u. s, military veterans who went on to live with years of crippling p t. s. d. far to many know the reality of bush's leadership style. but of course, master class didn't see fit to include any lessons on how to wage
11:30 pm
a legal invasions, how to get away with occupying nations for years on and or how to lie about all of it, and be accepted by the mainstream public. a tough call indeed. ah, charging tina now we're protestors took to the streets and forced to show support for the countries ex president who faces up to 12 years in jail on corruption charges. ah, water cannons and tear gas were used to disperse the crowd that broke through police barriers in the capitol when all sight is. meanwhile numerous supporters of foreseen a cure center. now, the vice president gathered in front of her apartment to show solidarity prosecutors of called the case, the biggest corruption scheme ever known in the country, and are calling for character to be banned from public office for life. she has been accused of leading a criminal investigation.
