8:18 am
there is no blank check. true that we have faith in him. and we believe in his good intentions, but the implementation remains an obstacle for both supporters and opponents of the president to niecy and now appears to be at a crucial cross road gillian wolf, al jazeera. or thank you, back to afghanistan, they were the 1st group of interpreters he helped us forces during the war or on their way to america. i said plastic as to james space, a lie for us in kabul. and james, this all comes after the senate passed this emergency bill providing extra visas, extra funding to help facilitate the transfer of interpreters from afghanistan to the us. that isn't enough to help all of those who worked with the americans during the war who are in real danger, all reprisals from the taliban. well certainly we know that there is
8:19 am
a mass evacuation of military interpreters taking place. and the 1st of this series of flights is on its way, we believe about $200.00 people on board. and we know that the u. s. has in the past, brought out some of the interpreters with them in afghanistan. but i think it's worth considering the scale of the number of africans that have worked with international forces over the last 20 years. rewind, 10 years. there were about 150000 nato. and us troops here that are about 400 international military bases across afghanistan. just think how many guns were employed in all those bases as interpreters, because it wasn't just the us, all the nato allies were here. so that 20, you know, in other countries as well, that were well over 2025 or bowl. other countries that are nato members that were part of the south coalition. but we understand that some of those forces,
8:20 am
some of those countries have also extend an invitation to interpreters, but there are many more who want to get out. one example, for example, canada, canada, said that it's interpreters can come forward if they want to leave the country. but initially from also what they said, that they had just a matter of hours just 3 days in order to put their application in. that now has been clarified by the canadian saying that they will accept applications off to this point. and remember also, it's not just those that work for the military forces. remember that there are many outcomes for international organizations. for n g o for contractors, for media organizations, or the big question is this. if the americans don't think it's safe for those with us forces, then what is that message to all the others that work for the international community? and for that matter, what so message to the rest of the 38000000 population of ask us dawn that they are
8:21 am
going to leave behind. ok, james days, they'll just say plastic ads are live in capital. james, thank you. the syrian military has stepped up, its bombardments of the southern provinces, dera after rebels loans, the tax on army checkpoints, at least 18 people have been killed in size and displaced is the worst violence and government forces we took the area 3 years ago. lawrence cor, was a senior fellow at the center for american progress son's, a former us assistant secretary of defense. he says, much will depend on russia's reaction after the election. most of the people in year i did not even both. and i think i saw and was trying to get control of the whole country now that he's had this 85 percent support in the election. and when he tried that, the rebels who were allowed to maintain some of their arms on the russian broker
8:22 am
agreement and 2018 they resisted. and so now you've got a lot of violence there. and the question becomes, one of the russians going to do, there's really no reason for it except psychological because basically this says, we've maintained our independence from assad. we have not cave. and so it's much more psychological. and i think that really the question is all the rush is going to intervene like they did in 2018, or are they going to say, well, some slices is gone. you guys go ahead and fight it out. what there's a question that this why they could spill over into the surrounding areas and they even involve israel. what's nobody was protests in guatemala or colon for the resignation of the president and the attorney general after the heads of the countries. anti corruption agency was dismissed demonstrators, blood traffic and condemned what they say is a brazen is brazen. corruption at the highest levels of government, manuel,
