9:02 pm
a day after the military vowed to bring peace to the country. the, the shooting started after demonstrators took down the militant groups, black and white banner and hoisted the african national flag instead. public resistance to the taliban takeover has been limited. those similar protests have been seen in other provinces as well. for example, further south in the city, of course, people also torn down to tell a bunch banner from the main square and hoisted the old african flag and said, taliban fighters opened fire soon enough, but no casualties were reported. local general de la worry, says the militants are under greater scrutiny these days with everything ending up on line. one's going to install the african national flag. if you are the taliban, you would have not expected this 20 years ago. today it's a different one and then there's a younger generation people have access to social media. so we will have to see
9:03 pm
what is the official position of this other bond about this issue right now. this is a major headache for the taliban soldiers trying to police the city a city. i don't. busy know i see that too complicated and this vacuum, some people have just thought ok, this is the time. let's go and pick up some vehicles and weapons. for more facials at the taliban have been shedding at their what's up number, the number of cell phones asking visit and to basically get in touch if they saw such incidents. and they have been rather swift in quick, in terms of responding 20 years ago. no one could speak and had access to social media to did want to start watching in the world is watching. in the meantime, a more serious threat to the telephones power grab is forming in the countries north. it is reported that around $10000.00 afghan army soldiers are rallying in punch here province. it is the only region of afghanistan that is still contested. it was an outpost of taliban resistance in the 1990 s, and was never captured during the civil war. it also held out during the soviet
9:04 pm
invasion pendulum province is located within a valley of steep mountains that form a solid natural defense spearheading the resistance. there now is the afghan 1st vice president ruler sally. unlike us nato, we haven't lost spirit and see enormous opportunities ahead. useless caveats finished joined the resistance. sally has declared himself half gonna stand legitimate, acting president after his former boss flooded the country. amid the tele bonds advance on cobble, he has fought the islamist before and was also in charge of spying on the militants leading. the national security directorate and other key figure is helping him rally the resistance together. a commodity sued the son and namesake of a prominent african warlord, who opposed the 1st taliban rule. here's what masoud was saying back in june about defending his homeland. they're going to fight for the rights of the people. they're going to fight for the rights of women,
9:05 pm
and they're going to fight for many other values. the 2 chairs and you look at, you can see that you're the 1st line of defense. we are defending europe. you're defending division, and africans are fighting not just for themselves, but for everyone. and videos have already started emerging on line of the resistance forces. here you can see the troops flying the green and white flags of the northern alliance. this was formed after the telephone 1st came to power 996 and it fought the group until the us led invasion. we discussed the emerging resistance with a number of experts and opinion is divided over whether it poses any real threat. the telephone well, did you remember the machine? how strong this is going to be? but it is a moment to sort of symbolic way because the ton of under one control of the country, pretty much all of it. and this is all small pockets. resistance could be remaining there and they couldn't develop, decides doomed in the, in the short term not get very big. i think one big question will be whether any
9:06 pm
foreign countries don't recognize no going to lunch or any other resistance group and to try and ostracize. and i'd like to try to been given that one city valley, the conser district has a history of standing up against any kind of italian rule. let it be the soviets later. but the 7 law, i'm the only one that is a good chance that all those were pushing the, on the one would rally around the literacy of i met some assaults some masoud at the moment. i'm given that vice president stared back and he's making the claim . he's going to be very, i'll on the mental in terms of goal is things that particular produce and which was in there pretty slowly coming together. and the fight promises to be a bloody one. as the taliban has gotten its hands on the high tech arsenal worth billions gifted by the americans to the african army. us national security adviser
9:07 pm
faced some embarrassing questions about all the weaponry left behind. those black hawks were given to the tall one. they were given to the african national security forces to be able to defend themselves. we don't have a complete picture, obviously of where every article of defense materials has gone. but certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the taliban. and obviously we don't have a sense that they are going to readily handed over to us at the airport. taliban fighters have been creating a round cobble showing off their new made in america, rifles and humvees. telephone. social media accounts have been posting videos, films, in other cities and regions of arms originally supplied by western powers. earlier we spoke to the founding editor of the online new site. this can't be happening. he says, the seized weapons wouldn't stand a chance against foreign enemies because of the nature of the taliban african army wasn't being armed to fight against a,
9:08 pm
a high tech opponent. so i'm not sure that it gives the tell by a lot of material to oppose a force that's getting arm saved from the wes, they've got some pretty fancy stuff and they may have a lot of like hardware they don't have any of the really high tech stuff they don't have any aircraft, missiles and things like that because the, the ask and military wasn't supplied with those. so i'm not sure it gives a great advantage. they wouldn't have things or attacking another power coming in. because the they were being armed against the taliban. remember, comedian jimmy dorm has some advice for washington on how to avoid such a 1000000 humiliations. he shared it with option with thompson on our to use going underground. do you want a u. s. intervention a military intervention? tell me about which country you want the u. s intervening, and i think it's about, i mean, because
9:09 pm
a lot of people are saying we need to stay in afghanistan to help the women. i say, how about united states takes about 3 or 4000 troops and invade los angeles and brings health care and medical aid, and shelter to the 60000 homes people in, in los angeles. how about we invade the inner cities of america, and we bring health care to those people? we bring shelter to those people. we bring medicine to those people. we bring counseling to those people. how about we invade america? and we start trying to help america. when is, when is america going to care about the women? and, you know, one out of 5 kids in america lives in poverty. so if you want to help people, why don't you give women and children want to have women living wage in the united states, give them health care and give them an education? ironically, that's what the government up gavin then did up until we invented the taliban. if you took, so there's 600000 according to statistics or 600000 homeless people in america. lot
9:10 pm
of those are women. lot of those are children. now if you gave them each a $1000.00 stipend a month, a $1000.00 a month to go get housing. that would cost $7200000000.00 a year. 7.2000000000. you know, we've been spending 2 trillion dollars or the last 20 years, 300000000 dollars a day to kill people to get it then. so the united states ever really cared about women. they could spend a $7200000000.00 to do or take care of the homeless people in the united states. give them a 1000 that they won't do it. so yet joe biden, navy pillows each up humour. mitch mcconnell, all the leaders and both parties, they know that they're, that one out of 5 children lives in poverty in the united states, along with their mothers. and they don't care. ah, that's where i've kind of stand itself. it's international airport in the capital.
9:11 pm
so i'm more chaotic scenes on wednesday the this on verified video shows afghan women at the air hub of pleading with us guards to let them in. america and other western countries are prioritizing, getting their own nationals out 1st. meanwhile, with crowds of atkins, queuing outside the perimeter, has now been confirmed. the us troops have fire warning shots as quote, a crowd control measure. the area surrounding the airport though is being controlled by telephone fighters who also opened fire to disperse the crowds. they are reportedly not shooting at people as well. along queues have also formed outside different embassies in cobble made up of people hoping to escape. france has moved its embassy to the capital airport to speed up processing, and ensure greater safety for those trying to flee the fall outreaches beyond afghanistan's borders. several european nations are refusing to take in refugees from the country ripping wide open,
9:12 pm
old divisions over mass migration with many fearing a repeat of the crisis of 2015, when more than a 1000000 people came to europe. our policy here picks up the story for us. pull in increasing number of european nations are refusing to accept refugees from afghanistan. what they most afraid of is a repeat of the 2015 migration crisis and countries. i'm not afraid to admit that you have, for example, austria saying that it's against immigration, the interior minutes to say that the aim of europe should be to keep the bulk of the gun population in the region. at the same time we heard from hungary saying it's refusing to take in more refugees it, it won't make it, so it isn't pay for the quote floor the decisions of the united states wanting from the french president in manuel crohn has come under fire for using the term irregular migration coming from a gunny son and this has left a lot of people angry micron disorder and france. he mainly wants people to stay
9:13 pm
there. he doesn't give a damn about anything. it is important for him that no one comes to us. what about the right to silence? what about these children? these women, these men, her flaying, the terror of the taliban, france must not stand aside. congress actions are needed now. levine yet wait for this has agreed to pay. can 5, not 50, not 500, not 5000, but 5 refugees. how many times in the last 3 days have we heard your pin leaders talk about human rights? they seem to be saying all the why things, when it comes to love and compassion and justice. and yet the reality speaks a very different story. these huge qual at the moment between brussels and member states and that quarrel is over quoted. it's over protective measures and the like, at the same time we've heard these european leaders practically reaping when it
9:14 pm
comes to the issue of women's rights. and yet it just remains words. it's almost like it's span cpr. the overall sentiment really is one that europe does not want migraines and they not going to be offering any kind of helping hand. and just in case you need further proof of it, germany has come under fire for using military ship to bring some $65000.00 cans of beer to germany instead of bringing hundreds of guns and their families who have hoped the german authorities in afghanistan. these people were not going to be uses and they have not been evacuated in time. the german president has said that the gun turmoil shamed the waste the images of desperation at campbell airport. shameful for the political west. we are experiencing a human tragedy for which we share responsibility. pearlin must do everything it
9:15 pm
can to bring our people and all afghans who stood for years by their side to safety . jim is increasingly worried about an influx of refugees. almost 2 thirds of the population has admitted that they are concerned about a repeat of the 2015 migration crisis. now this comes as important. elections are to be held next month, a general election in germany, and presidential elections that will be held in april next, in from the issue of migration is likely to be a hot potato. come those elections, which is why you have politicians fighting over the us gun migration potential crisis u. k. parliament has been recalled from its summer recess to debate the situation in afghanistan including repatriated people and taking in refugees. britain has pledged to resettle 20000 guns, but only 5000 in the 1st year. the withdrawal and in soon chaos has left many m. p . 's,
9:16 pm
incense. the reputation of the west to support democracy across the world has suffered recent defence not going to stand, shade the west trying to insult just a west him example of democracy possibly was a route that we should reconsider. we look many options, which is because including the potential for staying longer ourselves. factoring complacency from our government. was our intelligence really? so whole what would, what would i do differently? i wouldn't, i suppose sexual failed. he shot trick now shop. take the time on doing everything the con to get these people. so what does everything that can mean that evacuation had to go ahead? we get this done in a expeditious fashion as we can y'all sacrifice deserves better than this. and so to the people they say on lives on their lives for that fellow,
9:17 pm
when i'm for the whole it will support just 5000 in the 1st year. what the 15000 men to do, i know round and wait until they've been executed. k officials are working, run the hundreds of thousands of british people have flown, gonna stand to serve the private to flew to avoid public service. this is off the mac marketing point for our fail to find them. system the politicians decided to withdraw. the politicians must be responsible for the consequences. while parliament was debating inside protesters gathered to condemn the government response to the current events among those where people with family trapped in the country and some carrying sign saying, afghans have been left to be butchered. the protesters are demanding more people be brought sooner to the u. k. also in the crowd, the british ex opposition leader. i'm hoping that the government will both explain the chaos of the evacuation will agree on a much larger number of refugees,
9:18 pm
counties this come to this for them, dropped the anti record to rhetoric pretty battelle has been dish out with the past few months. a bubble will give us something thing. they can learn the foreign policy lesson. britain, after all, as returns to the training, the afghan. i. britain, after all, set up the training cool to the army and the result is not going to go earlier. we heard from cerebral have p t. the daughter of a british national, stuck in afghanistan, she told us officials have done little to help bring back her elderly mother. my mother's a 79 years old, fragile disabled woman was previous for history of a stroke. and she is currently going through severe arthritis and which is waiting for our surgery. and so she cannot travel without a wheelchair access. and she has services from the airport and freshman issue is not say the twice at the airport by crowd passengers trying to get into these
9:19 pm
slides and other civilians who was trying to flee couple so pressure. and she wasn't able to avoid the flight because of her medical condition. when she attended in the office. there was one in the couple on threat. surely she was constantly being dismissed by the guards. i tried literally bombarding their treasure account, the social media current trying to get their attention to and bear in mind and pay attention to my mother's condition. unfortunately, every time i contacted them, i was getting the same call continues on. the embassy was interesting and encouraging. all citizens to try and a commercial life which on question may be full, been suspended because of the us troops trying to control the airport. us president joe biden admits he knew there would be chaos enough galveston, but he decided to pull out the troops anyway in an interview with a b. c. news,
9:20 pm
biden asserts that the security collapse in the war torn country was unavoidable. i don't think it could have been handled in a way that we were going to go back in hindsight, look, but the idea that somehow there's a way to have gotten out without chaos and suing. i don't know how that happens. i don't know how that happened. the decision seems to have caused by an dearly back home with the u. s. president's approval rating sharply hitting an all time low. here is our correspondent, kill him up with commentary. the chaotic scenes and cobble have certainly not been good for the white house. the approval rating of joe biden has now dropped to less than half only 46 percent of americans say they liked the jobs that the new president is doing. now, the events in afghanistan have certainly been a factor because prior to them he was at 53 percent. so a 7 percent drop seems to have resulted. some polls are now showing that joe biden
9:21 pm
was handling of afghanistan is less popular than george w bush's handling of afghanistan. and we now have a situation where a senator bob menendez, representing the u. s. foreign relations committee of the senate. he's coming forward with this statement. the events of recent days have been the combination of a series of mistakes made by republican and democratic administrations over the past 20 years, including the trumpet, ministrations floored negotiations with the taliban, and the biden administration's floored execution of the u. s withdraw. the committee will seek a full accounting for these shortcomings. now republicans are being far less forgiving. they say that jo biden's decision to rapidly pull out of afghanistan is harming the united states, discrediting the country, hurting relations with allies. there's been a fire storm of anger from the republican side of the aisle. this biden
9:22 pm
administration said they plan for every scenario. they told us to day prior that koval cobble was not imminent. he told us less than a month before that this would never happen yesterday. hope president biden would accept responsibility and explain how he would fix the catastrophe in galveston. instead, he blamed his 3 previous asses and the ap guns with ford, beside our troops for 20 years. thing pointing won't solve this crisis boaters. there should be top to bottom accountability at the pentagon and within the administration for this disaster that this stunning failure has been met with silence from didn't biden's cause into serious question. his ability to carry out his duties as commander in chief, the president's failure to acknowledge his disastrous withdrawl provides no comfort to americans or afghan partners whose lives hang in the balance. now to add insult to injury, there are millions, if not billions of dollars of weapons were talking gun ammunition tanks, helicopters that have simply been abandoned. these were weapons that were given to
9:23 pm
the u. s. trained afghan forces and they seem to have been left behind. and from what jake sullivan was the national security advisor joe biden says it's pretty unlikely that the taliban is simply going to hand them over at the airport. now. nancy pelosi stepped up and defended the president on this point. i command the president for the action that he took. this is what happens when you withdraw you some stuff. some equipment is left there. now joe biden stands by his decision. he says that there were not ever been a good time for the usa to pull out of afghanistan. this would have resulted at any point in which this happened. he says he did the right thing. polls are showing americans are not pleased. there is also some outrage in the international community, not a good day for the white house. biden's, denial of american nation building in afghanistan has been slammed by china with beijing saying u. s. military intervention has not only been unproductive there, but also in plenty of other places as well. would you lead all by then?
9:24 pm
i have noticed that the president biden said that the goal of the united states and a scanner stone is not to rebuild the contrary. she was right in iraq, syria, or a dentist, and wherever the u. s. military goes, it leaves behind turmoil, division, and destruction of homes and people. it has always lived behind the shambles. the power and role of the united states is destruction, not construction. the chinese foreign ministry spokes person affirmed that beijing respects half chemistry and sovereignty and about the china will help to rebuild the war, twin country, and fort anyone seeking to harm china from africa and territory. we discussed meetings, criticism of america's actions with politics. professor joseph gregory mahoney, who says u. s. involvement in central asia has always been the stabilizing disengagement from afghanistan is generally recognized as part of washington's efforts to re
9:25 pm
position strategically against china. so for this reason alone, we shouldn't be surprised by the agents criticism. you know, american involvement in central asia, starting in the late 19 seventy's up to the present, has always been the stabilizing. when the u. s answered after 911, was incredibly due stabilizing, and not just for us. but the whole region, especially as the americans put our bases in several other central asian countries, creating new security risk. also for china and russia with the current american withdrawal. chinese criticism is not, that's the us is leaving. rather it's the complete mess it's made and it's departure starting with trumps unilateral deal with the tele bond followed by, by these incredibly, the stabilizing character. i think china will try to work positively with the taliban. but keep for some time, a little bit of
9:26 pm
a diplomatic distance. i think they will work through their positive later, but pockets time to try to shape the situation in afghanistan. more positively. that's a rap on this. our coverage of the unraveling situation in afghanistan. we have been following it closely and will continue to do so. this is our international life for moscow. the the who, while the make no sure, you know board is blind to tease you . we don't have authority, we go to the back seen the whole world,
9:27 pm
leads to take action and be ready. people judge governors crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each of their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is to response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we need together in what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy plantation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful,
9:28 pm
very critical time time to sit down and talk to me. ah ah, i'm absent or you're watching the season finale of going undergrads as the world potentially witnesses. the end of the so called american iraq, coming up in the show, the ambassador to the united nations of regional power broke about this time and why he was not allowed to speak of the emergency security council meeting on afghanistan. and what is next to the de facto ca created taliban that finally defeated the usa,
9:29 pm
u. k. and other nato nations occupying the so called graveyard of empires. and why is the military industrial complex allowing us president joe biden to withdraw from janice john lee zone in the global scale of us, m with the host and the jimmy door show jimmy door. all listen more coming up in today's season finale of getting underground for any nature veterans watching this show. there are multiple help lines in your countries for those disturbed by the issues in this episode. that's of course because the formerly ca armed taliban has defeated nature nations like the usa and u. k. after 20 years in one of the most g o strategic places on earth, critical to afghanistan, future will be pakistan. and joining me now from new york is the un ambassador to pakistan and the former president of the un security council. when here, my master, thanks so much for coming on. i should just say that amidst all the mainstream media around the world, reporting on this little comment about the fact that you said after the emergency meeting at a press conference at the un in new york that you weren't allowed to speak at the emergency meeting. i mean, they're relevant to vietnam, arguably,
9:30 pm
not so much of estonia. why? when you are now to speak at the meeting with joe enough, just sheen by the indian president of the council. it was widespread support. almost all the members of the one to pakistan and other regional countries to be able to but india getting to that without giving any reason and only in right, a kid representative. so that represents at the moment. but communicate on yawning, on, i believe, speak. none of us now, i think it was because it was not one at the cable industry,
