in every iraqi house. no, no, my dear, your picture is now under iraqi. the popularity the united states is diminishing day by day if not every 2nd. we reject the presence of the american army or even the awnings by the us forces we reject them. we do this as an act of occupation. well, if you save almost alleviate political, unsecure, unless one bogged down phase, i'm sorry to have enormous support in iraq, but more militant fall with the putting in chaos to the country. he has amended amount among his followers and the last election is about a $160000.00 votes altogether for political part. so that basically is the base for his power. that's all iraq in baghdad to particular he has a large number of supporters,
12:04 pm
but that there is no issue with the problem with the malicious, the ironically call his school, which is the militia connected to mr. i felt that a good history so bad we had very all day long nights aubrey by michelle attack, that many large government post and engine people had even targeted civilians to ukraine. now where 1200 of kias troops have been killed and have failed offensive in the countries south, according to russia's defense ministry, moscow say, thea craniums or the last 48 tanks and almost a 100 other armored vehicles off the trying to advance on 3 fronts at once and being beaten back by the russian military,
12:05 pm
the most offensive is said to have been ordered by president lensky and candidate intensified ukrainian, selling of civilian infrastructure in southern regions which are controlled by russia. one of the latest attacks hit a key bridge and the cast and region based on verified amateur 30 age appears to show the immediate aftermath of the bombing. the bridge is mainly used by civilians . local authorities to set up an alternative pontoon bridge to help people get a cross fit has also been challenged by ukraine's army. and in the neighboring zap osi, a region local russian back toll authority. the ukraine is once again showed the city of n, the dust under screen. it is the aftermath of a previous attack which wounded 9 people on sunday. and our guitar is located near these upper don't see a nuclear power plant, which is expected to be visited by a delegation and from the international atomic energy agency. later this week was i thought the facility was bombed multiple times with russia blaming ukraine for attacking the site which could spark a nuclear disaster. we got reaction from some of the local residents. that is
12:06 pm
of this is horrifying. i have no words. this is over the top, they're just shelling civilians go up. this is complete. melissa. you see it all. naturally. after the exclusions and fires, we began to look around hold. i found these shell fragments, and there is a hole on the 2nd floor where i found even more fragments, which have been sent to law enforcement authorities. and now to don baths, where russian lead forces are intensifying their offensive to take back major strongholds held by ukraine. a correspondent, egleston of reports from the front lines. ah drone footage is become a fundamental part of the wall in ukraine. it helps adjust artillery fire. it helps
12:07 pm
confirm hits. it strips the enemy of morale on the outskirts of the town of solid r. there's no rest for ukrainian and russian. how it is. we are basically the epicenter of an artillery duel between the russians and the ukrainians. in fact, the positions of both sides are so close that we can only hear has the shells it like that the russian side, but we can hear the ukrainians firing them. so essentially we can follow the whole root of any shell coming from the ukranian side from the moment it was fired to the point just like that to the point when it was over our heads and and as it heads somewhere close in the vicinity of the russian artillery positions . bloody gruesome street fights within the town limits have slowed down russia's
12:08 pm
advance in solid r to a trickle ground. troops are relying on artillery support to clear the way, but keep troops realized that too, while on other parts of the front, russia out shells ukraine, roughly $20.00 to $1.00. here the ratio is way more close. ukrainian shows blow a black smoke at an uncomfortable distance. offices on the ground q our escape, the moment a brief flow comes amid the storm. i ah mm. oh my gosh darn of reporting from the don bass. our t washington claims is worried about the unfolding european energy crisis and is promising to help deal with the threat of potential shortages which
12:09 pm
have been prompted by us. lead sanctions. a top whitehouse aid says he's confident that europe's commitment to ukraine will not be affected. despite the use problems on the home front, we're concerned about potential energy shortages in europe as the winter approaches . we'll be latched up with allies in partners to try to do what we can to alleviate any shortages coming through. what we see from a diplomatic perspective, what we see on the economic front, and frankly, what we see on the security assistance front is an impressive and absolutely unchanged sense of resolve in unity over supporting ukraine. well, i'm afraid it looks like it's now europe's turned to find out that washington's promises aren't worth the paper on which they are written in a letter that the wall street journal editorial board has described as bullying. u . s. energy secretary jennifer granholm has instructed the nation's top refiners, including exxon shelby p and chevron, to refrain from exporting fuel at a time when america is european allies are in deep need,
12:10 pm
given the historic level of u. s. refined product exports. i again urge you to focus in the near term on building inventories in the united states, rather than selling down current stocks and further increasing exports. granholm cited quote, historically low inventory levels of gasoline and diesel in parts of the country as the justification for looking out for america's interests. first, the last thing, the biden and the democratic party need right now heading into the november mid term elections is a fuel shortage. that risks handing victory to the republicans. brussels was led straight down the garden path by washington and sanctioning its own cheap gas supply from russia. recalled back on june 27th, that the e u and the white house issued a joint statement saying that they were quote, working together to find ways to further reduce rushers, energy derived revenues in the coming months. and that quote, the united states and the european commission have made important strides towards
12:11 pm
reducing the european union's dependence on russian fossil fuels by decreasing natural gas demand, cooperating on energy efficiency technologies, and diversifying enter supplies. great. so where's the help from america? now while the truth is that washington just doesn't currently have the infrastructure to meet europe's massive needs and faces environmental pressure against any such expansion. so the e was stuck having to run door to door worldwide begging for gas while the u. s. energy secretary tells it's fuel companies, kids turn off the lights, hide behind the couch and pretend that no one's home, especially if it's that you guy looking for energy. meanwhile, here in france, prime minister, elizabeth bona just told an annual meeting of the countries corporate executives to draw up quote, energy sobriety plans. oh, we're all just so drunk on energy here. we need a sobriety plan. so basically, the french government is now resorted to treating its corporate citizens like drugs
12:12 pm
in a pub last call and threatening to cut them off with rationing. speaking of hugs, those in the u. k. now risk mass closure over energy costs, by the way, the ceo of multinational shell oil and gas company isn't sounding too optimistic about any of this. it may well be that we have a number of winters where we have to somehow find solutions through efficiency savings through rationing and a very, very quick build out of alternatives that this is going to be some how easy over i think is a fantasy that we should put aside easy to say for a guy making around 6000000 british pounds each year to dictate how the working class ought to live and sacrifice. or for us energy, secretary, gran home or for western establishment deletes who don't struggle to cover basic living costs. as they skyrocket, it's a scam, but they don't care because they know they personally will escape the consequences of their own policies. so when the french president announces that his people are
12:13 pm
facing the end of abundance, he's not talking about himself. he is not facing the end of abundance, none of them are mac crown and all of them understand they will always be re and always be protected. they know that for certain, washington is looking out for its own interest. first and foremost, an individual member states should consider following hungry example in doing what's best for their own people, you know, hungry with it's new nuclear reactor announcement built with russia and it's new gas deals with russia. they should be looking out for their own people and independently securing their own energy need before it's too late. well, the u. s. is accused of undermining chinese sovereignty and tie. one paging has both feet and americans backyard. china's influence in latin america is growing with ecuador, the latest country to announce a free trade agreement with beijing, and kudos production, trade and investments minister julio. jose prado announced that the administration of president dmo la su, seeks to achieve
12:14 pm
a free trade agreement with china. this year, ecuador, and you are guar, palomar, colombia, and nicaragua in finding such agreements, well, 21. latin american countries are also part of aging cells and road initiative. since 2002, china is total trade with the latin american countries has sky rocketed from $18000000000.00 to the $450000000000.00 in 2021. the gregory will pack save us dominance over latin american countries is waning. china is offering much better conditions in terms of its investment in terms of the deals it's offering to latin america. and so it's making it a lot more interesting for the countries of latin america to switch towards china instead of the united states. and of course, the fact that the countries in latin america have have had social movements
12:15 pm
that have moved the government towards the left basically with which are more critical of the united states. at the same time as china has become a much more viable trading and investment partner compared to the united states, the summit of the americas that took place in los angeles this year earlier this year was basically a big failure because lots of governments and latin america decided to boycott, their participation are refused to participate in that summit and to the u. s. essentially a sabotage count. it's all in summer time in which was the 1st and over a decade in our, in on us soil. and so that was a very embarrassing situation, and it's really quite stunning how all these foreign policy, experts from in the bible and ministration did not seem to think that this would happen in the past. there are literally in the back pocket of the united states government and that is definitely no longer the case,
12:16 pm
especially with what had been what some have been calling the 2nd pink tied. next we bring you the latest on ask on install on the trials and tribulations, all big civilians who are still struggling piece that lives back together a year off. the disaster if u. s. military withdrawal of their country intensive passes. ah, according to a recent poll, 50 percent of americans think the war in afghanistan was a mistake. u. s. senate has also criticized the binds administration for the hasty withdrawal describing the bush pull out as a legacy of american betrayal. ortiz don't course asthma. people clinging on to a plane for dear life, only to fall to their deaths, a suicide bombing chaos that was kabul one year ago,
12:17 pm
as the u. s. withdrew its troops from afghanistan, that was, according to joe biden, a success 20000 people evacuated the safety. that number's more than double what most expert sower possible. no nation, no nation has ever done anything like it in all history. the only united states had the capacity to will believe you to do it and we did it today. if biden's disorderly withdrawal succeeded in doing anything, it was depriving the u. s. puppet government in couple of any chance to defend itself in the run up to the pull out u. s. air support for the afghan military was cut off. american troops, abandoned bagram air base without even warning the afghan commander there. all the while washington knew the country, security forces would only be ready to act on their own. no sooner than 2030, no surprise. the afghan military just cut and ran. special inspector general for afghanistan reconstruction found that the single most important factor in the
12:18 pm
afghan national defense insecurity. fos is collapse in august 2021 was the u. s. decision to withdraw military forces and contractors from afghanistan. these events destroyed foster morale. in a matter of days, kabul fell to the taliban. once it did, thousands of people were left behind afghan collaborators, even american citizens, to fend for themselves against islamic fundamentalism. the failure of senior biden's administration leadership to plan for this fateful day resulted in a rush to fuck you ation of hundreds of thousands of americans, 3rd country, nationals, and afghans. it left behind hundreds, possibly thousands of american citizens. tens of thousands of afghan partners and a legacy of american betrayal of allies. this failure of leadership cost u. s. military personal lives and has left tens of thousands behind to an uncertain fight on the telephone control. it wasn't long before outrage ensued across the political spectrum in washington. president barnes was today was hollow,
12:19 pm
one american left behind as one to many the factories president biden abandoned american son of gaston live in them at the mercy of the taliban and isis k. the president made the morally indefensible decision to leave americans behind dishonor was the president's choice. may history never forget this cowardice? oh, then it is clear to me that we could not continue to put american service members in danger for an unreasonable war. i also believe that the vacation process appears to have been a graciously mishandled. i think it has been an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions. this is going to be a stain on this president in this presidency. i think he is going to have blood on his hands for what they did. 20 years of military occupation over $2.00 trillion taxpayer dollars down the drain, hundreds of thousands of people killed. at the end of it all, us backed president osh. ralph gone, he fled the country and was accused by afghan officials of taking millions of dollars with him. the same man that washington itself described as paranoid and
12:20 pm
undermining for moral a year later, the u. s. still refuses to come to terms with its failure on the virginia state senate in which and blank says the u. s. should never have waited into afghanistan in the 1st space. the withdrawal was chaotic. ah, perhaps a little bit more that it should have been. it was an amateur ball, but we would leave and it was inevitable that the departure would be k audit from the very beginning. this was a perfect government. collapse was inevitable. in a sense, the african armies rapid collapse was somewhat of a blessing because it avoided perhaps a year or 2 unnecessary bloodshed. this government has always been a mere facade. and the instant that we cease to profit of it collapse, american people had been convinced to invest fabulous sums of money that went into
12:21 pm
swiss bank accounts for, for arms manufacturers and wealthy politicians. the president of the rock don't stand reportedly played with a $150000000.00. the fact is we never should have been there. we were in violent conflict with the culture of about ghana, stan, we were flying the rainbow sodomy, flag over the american embassy. and we were just in the terrible conflict with the way that people live and during much of the time that we were transitioning to create this app, can army about a 3rd of all us casualties. people killed in afghanistan were killed by the same troops. and we were trying to train, so it was just a disaster. the u. s. was tacitly over
