tent tree. the situation like hell for people especially for men and a suicide attack. talks their life off hand and a sense of value and daily basis and different cities off afghanistan not only a couple of and now there is a whole topic and reports in afghanistan that the only person in afghanistan who's satisfied off the job is that coffin seller and also about the almost all of it in a couple of pulled against this backdrop the u.s. media has published a revealing article which details years of deliberate to some formation on the part of top american officials who it transpires have been putting on a brave face despite knowing the unpalatable truth about the war in afghanistan. hundreds of thousands dead trillions of dollars lost generations traumatized but you know what nothing good comes easy nothing in afghanistan we
7:04 am
helped liberate an oppressed people. and we will continue helping them secure their country rebuild their society and educate all their children boys and girls. all that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is within reach and we're doing a tremendous job. and as you know a big part of the job is isis certainly the biggest and al qaeda and we. we've got them down very low numbers you didn't need to be nostradamus or clairvoyant to know that someone was telling bull it's just logical fallacy you can't keep fighting the same guys for 20 years and claim the joule winning but then appearances must be kept up it's important that everyone thinks you're winning right up to the moment you admit you lost why well it's obvious no one has the remotest clue
7:05 am
we were trying to do here we didn't have the focus notion of what we were undertaking there is a fundamental gap of understanding of the front end of the stated objectives grew lines in the military and the lack of understanding of the resources necessary and we'd never have known if it hadn't been thousands of secret and classified documents on afghanistan and stuff from the white house from the pentagon the un and the various n.g.o.s well we would have known it's pretty damn obvious that the war is going terribly but who says mouth and all that it is worth considering what the president the deficient said and what they actually believed when i called our troops in action i did so with complete confidence. their courage and skill and tonight. thanks to them. we are winning the war on terror. and.
7:06 am
today we lack metrics to know if we are winning or losing the global war on terror are we capturing killing or deterring a dissuading more terrorists every day than them addresses on the radical clerics are recruiting training and deploying against us does the us need to fashion a broad integrated plan to stop the next generation of terrorists the us is putting relatively little effort into a long range plan but we are putting a great deal of effort into trying to stop terrorists the cost benefit ratio is against us see when you're in your 2nd term and you started a really messy war that you just realized you can't hope to win there only so many ways to save your own but here's a list of words you should use courage democracy kids schools and hospitals and for the people that don't buy your baloney get a hope in there as well thanks to the courage of these military and civilian personnel a nation that was once a safe haven for al qaeda is now
7:07 am
a young democracy where boys and girls are going to school new roads and hospitals are being built and people are looking to the future with new hope also poor in money into huge infrastructure projects to obligate money that was appropriated to so we could spend it through building infrastructure in ways that have again instant could never sustain or even the use in some cases if you're a nato country taxpayer i honestly don't believe you can comprehend how much of your money was poured into this adventure you 1st need to understand the sheer degree of incompetence that these leaked documents show imagine for example someone's putting together a crew for a bank heist they invite a bunch of people give them a time and place and tell no. one what the rule is no plan so everyone shows up thinking that everyone outs knows what to do and things go as you would expect now
7:08 am
is the time to save your own heidi let's add a few more words difficult days human rights confidence success we will reward good governance work to reduce corruption and support the rights of all afghans men and women alike. there will be difficult days ahead but i am absolutely confident we will succeed you just cannot put those amounts of money into a very fragile state in society and not have if you corruption you just can't a legacy of mass corruption that's putting it lightly what else the jew expects the guys on the ground they saw disaster they were reported back to washington washington with its countless departments that now have the courage to stand up and say they screwed up so they put up appearances everyone was doing what made them
7:09 am
look best rather than what worked best interesting enough many of the documents were published with the name lessons learned perhaps an effort to extract something anything of value from this unmitigated disaster but you know as it has got a star not long ago and after seeing what i saw there i can tell you all asleep i can guarantee you that while they may have learned their lessons they sure as heck putting them to use and write a retired u.s. army colonel told us the american leadership was ill informed but when it had with the war in 2001 regardless. well like so many government officials great to admit failure and the idea that the united states military and the us foreign policy could possibly fail was something that they personally could not accept and so they kept pouring billions of dollars into afghanistan in the hopes that maybe
7:10 am
it would be a success the senior leadership of the united states government did not have a real clue on the history of foreign involvement in afghanistan they all should have known but they felt that for domestic political concerns they had to do something after 911 so the easy thing was to go to afghanistan a country that had essentially no real military and that puts thank thought the u.s. forces would be able to overwhelm very quickly. a russian delegation headed by the country's top diplomat visited washington d.c. on tuesday much to the irritation of u.s. democrats president trump though seemed happy about the visit just had a very good meeting with foreign minister sergey lavrov and representatives of russia discussed many items including trade iran north korea and if treaty nuclear arms control and election meddling look forward to continuing the dialogue in the
7:11 am
near future. the russian foreign minister also held talks with u.s. secretary of state mike pompei 0 issue of alleged actions meddling was race but the meeting wasn't all about us russia disagreements as your style of explaining from the outset it became clear how much room for improvement there is in the relations between russia and the united states for instance one of the cases election meddling the secretary of state my company has been very adamant that any interference in america's relations is unacceptable by a foreign power to which russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov stressed that all such accusations still exist in the realm of speculation. now as for meddling or not you suggested simply to read the report we did and there is no proof of any collusion. also has repeatedly said that russia is ready to release
7:12 am
full transcripts as to what was said by the russians and by the members of the trump team via a special communication channel that had been established back in 2618 but according to the russian foreign minister those attempts to make those transcripts see the light of day have so far been stopped by the trumpet ministration. after the integration of donald trump we suggested to our colleagues that in order to dispel all the bases suspicions let us publish this close channel of correspondence starting from october 26th until november 27th so that everything would become very clear to people unfortunately the current administration refused to do so now the bone of contention between russia and the united states is the i.m.f. or rather the absence of the deal now and both parties of both ministers have kind that clashed as to how they see the moving forward for instance the russian foreign minister sergey lavrov has again said that the countries could use the start treaty
7:13 am
that had been signed back in 2010 but might bump a has made it. clear what the united states don't like about that deal. agreement that was entered into many years ago when powers were very different on a relative basis around the globe. it was at a time that the weapons systems the threats were very different than they are today too so we believe not only do the conversations need to be broadened to include the chinese communist party it was year was that the russian president spoke again about russia's preparedness right now to agree on its extension to alleviate tensions in the global community given that the last instrument of arms control between the united states and russia will stop operating we are prepared to do that even today on the other hand circular labral has reiterated that russia has been making unilateral steps of good faith for instance the russian president had previously said that russia wasn't going to deploy any weapons that had been found under the i.n.f. treaty in europe unless washington or its allies decide to do that 1st but it
7:14 am
wasn't all negative there are some points where russia and the united states do see eye to eye on where they do see each other as valuable partners syria afghanistan north korea all those aspects all those political crises see russia and the united states working together and both countries and seeing did their best both ministers at least did their best to try and move that train forward as much as they could. for us democrats the meeting between russia and america's top diplomats was one more reason to suspect secret links between trump and moscow. trump is meeting with russia's foreign minister in the oval office again i'm visser he's invited in out last time they laughed about trump's firing of komi today they can celebrate the success of russian propaganda reagan wouldn't recognize this g.o.p. tromp lavrov and compare our meeting in broad with this afternoon what conspiracy
7:15 am
are they cooking up today congress congress seems to have been captured by a desire to destroy us russian relations used to splurge and shoot adam schiff describes normal by literal contacts between countries in particular the reception of the foreign minister of one country by the president of another country as a triumph of russian diplomacy well he might as well throw doping accusations against russian diplomats following the case with the athletes and call for our criminal liability to me position is just absurd. but panic over trump russia links wasn't the only thing getting democrats excited on tuesday earlier democratic house leaders officially rolled out articles of impeachment for the president they claim he think nord and even injure the interests of the country. and picks up the story . now the meeting focused on nuclear nonproliferation as well as other international issues but it appears that negotiations and moving forward on these vital international matters is being held back by some internal turmoil within the
7:16 am
united states of america and it just so happens that this meeting is taking place on the very day that articles of impeachment have been drawn up against donald trump over a phone call he had with the ukrainian leader and allegations that he obstructed the congressional investigation into that phone call the 1st article for abuse of power it is an impeachable offense president should be engaged in an unprecedented categorical and indiscriminate defiance of the impeachment inquiry. this gives rise to the 2nd article of impeachment for obstruction of congress i think it's a disgrace if people could make it be true that if the thing that was a perfect conversation they were perfect cover say here is the thing. and i think it's this very this is somewhat of a pattern whenever a high level meeting takes place but it seems that it's followed by a harsh attacks on the president and accusations of some kind of inappropriate
7:17 am
relationship between trump and russia or cia director john brennan was among the 1st to float the t. word treason officials and pundits even begin speculating whether russia had something on trump that would cause him to so publicly side with you have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an american president donald trump's action just today were quote appalling and shameful shocking and sad damaging and a threat to american democracy those harsh words related mainly to the investigation conducted by bob mohler regarding allegations of collusion now interestingly a new report has just been released regarding how that investigation was carried out the new report seems to indicate that the f.b.i. made great errors and how they what about investigating donald trump during this this probe into alleged collusion donald trump spoke critically of the f.b.i. and pointed toward the report the report actually and especially when you look into
7:18 am
it and the details of the report are far worse than anything i would have even imagine this was an overthrow of a government this was an attempt to overthrow the report shows is that the democrats are not even the democrats but any government official that did not want donald trump that wanted to support hillary clinton but that does not want donald trump in office or donald trump as president united states will do anything including lie lie to congress light a senate questions feed stories to the media break protocol violations of confidential investigations in order to feed those. stories of the media to create certain narratives to harm trump the report effects the impeachment process in general and hopefully you know most americans probably are going to read every single word but i hope that they do it's far more damaging than some of the outlets have made it sound there are lots of facts in there remember the report the i.g. report was never supposed to indict anybody or bring criminal charges it was supposed to show that there was wrongdoing and how these investigations started in
7:19 am
the 1st place how the russia trump lie started in the 1st place. still to come protesters in france demand that a new pension reform be scrapped but the government is pushing forward a story and more after the break. when almost sure seems wrong but we'll just don't call. me. yet to shape out these days to come after. and in detroit equals betrayal. when something the find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. you know world's big partners. and conspiracy it's time to wake up
7:20 am
to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back the french government is pushing ahead with its controversial pension reforms in the face of mass protests and strike action over the issue prime minister edward philippe will present the plans to the economic social and
7:21 am
environmental council on wednesday the day before more than 300000 people took part in demonstrations across france according to the interior minister but labor unions say the number was amongst the times higher with more from the french capital yes. well as you can see we are in the thick of it the country is trying to deliver their message to the government before it now says there are far no plans for the pension reform in france although we did hear from the country's prime minister that for them for now there is no intention to change their plans if we don't make serious profound and progressive reforms to date someone else will make a much more brutal reform tomorrow i hope that we can convince a majority of french people that our reform is fair it is universal it makes the special pension plans gradually disappear and is financially. balanced now just for a moment let me give you a clearer picture of who these people are for instance one is we've already been
7:22 am
used to the yellow vests but as you can see these are orange and what it says on them is s.n.c.f. this is the french railway company which is by the way one of the main driving forces of the protests here almost 85 percent of the railway staff members wait on strike and this really caused chaos in the country's transport system. about iran world war i can tell you that the professions range from air traffic controllers to actually police officers and lawyers so this is just how vast it is but i do have to mention though that last week protests in various cities of these countries did turn ugly and violent.
7:23 am
i can tell you that most of the slogans that we are hearing in these protests are aimed directly against the president emanuel macron one you can see right here it says macro don't touch my retirement the idea for the pension reform is to introduce a universal point system which will make the pension sums universal for different layers of the society but some of them in france do fear that they will lose their privileges they want to give us a time to talk to see. whom you have every hour who will die you forms
7:24 am
but almost. there with bring you a point never knows where now this is just a warning for the government but it's not hard to predict what's going to happen if emanuel macron in his state decides to stick to the. science and business don't only intersect and iran musk's office moscow state university has hosted a key forum for young talents looking at how the 2 spheres interact teleporter paid a visit. it's a glance into russia's future for the country's top university moscow state a place where the scientific achievements of young people are put on display for the world to see this year's innovation in practice congress has a large exhibition on how to improve education and job training is going to be everything from v.r. devices to agricultural technology so let's go take a step inside and find out what russia's brightest minds have to offer.

7:27 am
impeachment mania has dives drawn on both sides of the political divide the i.g. report clearly demonstrates the f.b.i. abused its powers when targeting trumped the judiciary committee is hell bent on impeachment articles ideological obsession the name of the game. when the balance came in 2008 oh there's a lot of money printing going on people said where's the inflation the government says there's no inflation you know and then a lot of people say well actually health care and education are skyrocketing in value you don't count those and that's why you're misreading inflation and this has been going on for years new evidence suggests. we found it we found the missing inflation.

a push we announced this week that they would be moving ahead with the impeachment of us president donald trump jerrold nadler democratic representative out of new york made the big announcement with house speaker nancy pelosi at his side they were told the media this. is a serious way to do the. work. he has to be taken. as he's being judged as it is the case. with the. naturally president trying to accuse usual twitter bullhorn responding to the impeachment talk saying to impeach a president who has proven through results including producing perhaps the strongest economy in our country's history to have one of the most successful presidencies ever and most importantly who has done nothing wrong is sheer political madness well clearly my friends the impeachment circus has not affected our president's sense of self accomplishment entitlement but while democrats
7:30 am
republicans and their pundit lackeys have been busy lobbing sound by hand grenades at each other these 2 warring factions and u.s. policies politics did find something to agree on this week the military industrial congressional complex as military dot com reports that to the tune of a $738000000000.00 bill house and senate negotiators have reached a deal on a defense policy bill aimed at avoiding a government shutdown creating a space force and getting rid of the so-called widow's tax. yes my friends right on the heels of discovering lie after lie after lie about the longest war in u.s. history through the afghanistan papers your republican and democratic representatives in congress just handed billions more of your tax dollars to the pentagon. and they wonder why we are always watching the hawks. if you want to.
