the ah, the evacuation slides regime a couple main airport to send and receive for free africa. and then i wanted to tell about room after the disastrous for through us. meanwhile, during the tail to pull out the western coalition leaves ammunition of the insurgents, including advanced weaponry from across the vehicle, even biometric devices. and also this, our americans claim that they are being refused life saving treatment. if they have an advocate with faxing, even if that condition means they can't be, you know, we put the issue up for the why you all we actually trying to discriminate against bully horizon. so small number of people chose not to take the boxes and i think

everyone should be treated regardless of whether they do or not. these females to discuss this with the see if it's the right thing for you as an individual. ah, hello. well, can you watching international now the situation has continued to deteriorate in africa. stand where the taliban has quickly swept to power across the country after the us the true. and it's lead to turbulent things to compose main airport, where tens of thousands of both foreigners and afghan from main stranded is they desperately seek to flee the country. the gunfire can be heard in the scenes from overnight. the heavily guarded airport with military personnel attempting to contain massive crimes. large numbers were also trying to get to the
6:02 pm
airport throughout the day to but were stopped by based taliban and american guards . on friday evacuation flight did regime office several hours when the airport remains one of the few places. not yet under taliban control. these images from the city of cost in the southeast to show how streets are being patrolled at the moment by the militant group who were telling low cost to return to their normal lives. they do insist they will maintain their promise of greater tolerance and respect for human rights, and also said they will not see correct for fusion or revenge elsewhere. though footage has emerged showing taliban fighters now enforce checkpoints on key highways. this one that stretches out of the capital this year to the strategic city of july, the bad, near the border with pakistan militant to seem carrying assault rifles, machine guns, and even rocket launches the inspected cars on the road before waving some of them

through. however, pockets of opposition, notably the national resistance front for afghan. the stan do say that they will not surrender to the taliban and are prepared to fight tone. well, nobody is facing having creasy powerful taliban, which has gained possession of vast quantities of west and weapons. and those to include advanced artillery and aircraft that were captured from government forces or simply handed over to them. because you don of a small this video write him claims to show taliban fighters, flaunting american made gear and well looking as nate alike as it gets headed. come out just a month ago. it would have been rubbish as an obvious fake. but today it's really believable americans left behind weapons and war machines worth billions of dollars so many in fact that the taliban might not even need them all. we don't have a complete picture obviously of where every article of defense materials has gone.
6:04 pm
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 hand it over to us at the airport, getting this much advanced weaponry, including a whole air force would have been bad enough. but misery loves company. americans also forgot to destroy biometric devices, used by the us forces to keep track of african nationals. the devices known as handheld interagency identity detection equipment contain identifying biometric data, such as iris scans and fingerprints as well as biographical information and are used to access large centralized databases. now, among other things, these gadgets can reveal if an individual ever cooperated with the american military. now these people could be literally one ice can away from death. the
6:05 pm
embarrassment of, of save captured american systems paraded in the straits is going to be something which will hold us for a long time. but even worse is the fact that the us mismanagement cause washington to abandon allies in ways which were disloyal. and this is going to make it very, very hard for the united states to game or regain the trust of a major allies including the united kingdom, australia, japan, india, and the like weapons and equipment is not the only stuff. the u. s. wasted in gunnison billions of taxpayer dollars would dumped down the drain of failed projects and initiatives. $20000000.00 that makes the soldier look like he target on the shooting range. i mean sure. as long as it looks good, i hate to be an afghan soldier wearing a uniform. it's sort of like, shoot me written on the back. yes. the american military,
6:06 pm
you spent almost $30000000.00 on the uniform with a for as design to be used in a country which has only 2 percent over slander, covered by trees. 176000000 was flashed out on a road that failed to last even a month, and not because it was bombed or anything parts of it were simply washed away. america also burned through $9000000000.00 to eradicate of gum extends, infamous poppy fields. instead, year to year, the rates of opium cultivation showed a steady rise despite the investment. the cultivation of ot and poppy in galveston has trended upward for 2 decades and insecurity has made it difficult to reverse. the growth of gaston developed its own ways for thousands of years. america tried to reverse its traditions and impose a new order for 20 years. so turns out opposites do not attract in
6:07 pm
garrison. i'm going to start a really not a place a coach. he says there are a lot of different people there. there are a lot of different tribes her. the culture is much different than what we would expect or are used to dealing with. we often underestimate their own ability to be dedicated to remaining in control of their country and being able to move forward to do that and have the patience to do that. the failure and a lot of these interventions let turn into war and misguided misplaced money are because we don't think about the populations and the people we think about interests are much larger, strategic scale and geo political competition, if you will, on who has more power in these reasons i'm society. be more,
6:08 pm
the pentagon has sent helicopters, rescue nearly a 170 americans from a hotel near bull's main airport. it is the 1st time since the afghan capital fell to the taliban. the us troops have moved into the actual city to evacuate individuals, word of warning, might find the following image is disturbing. early this we can make chaotic scenes on the runway to men frantically held on to the us military plain while it was taking off. they tragically fell to that death just moments later, both who under 30 years old and one was adopted. the other was zacky and warry, a 19 year old football or for the african national youth team. but washington's m boy d u. n does insist that no friends of america were actually among those clinging to the aircraft. we are in a process of trying to get people out and our friends and allies are not hanging off of planes or friends and allies are getting the support of the u. s government,
6:09 pm
i think her parents might have been on fire for the images that i've seen and i haven't been over there. but if those images are actor and they're not shooting a film, that lady might be lying. i mean, he got into play on his own will. so you got an a plane, you fall off your own right. and we'll do addiction. so that's all in his on doing . and that was just a stupid action that was regrettable. i believe it was a lot. he was a i was doing that. i think pretty much anybody i was in couple was probably a friend of ours since they were working with our military. they, not only have they been straight up gas and they betrayed our citizens, are still there and allies that for, alongside us, we seem to put our young men and women and that situation and they turn around and leave the course. you try to be, you go there with so many people helping us there. right? and then we just leave your on your own. now, you know, you wouldn't do that to an enemy, let alone a friend. and you know, it's going to happen as soon as you leave there, so yeah, that's terrible. we don't do that. we didn't do that. and that's the reflection of leadership. well, on friday, joe biden did,
6:10 pm
gave an address and fielded questions to one the crisis. i'm washington's decisions and run up to the last sundays, full of cabal, spite mounting criticism from all sides. he did try to put a brave face on a thrill, though admitted uncertainty to vacuum ration. mission is dangerous, and evolves risks to armed forces and has been conducted under difficult circumstances. i cannot promise with the final outcome will be well biden. he essentially used his address to try and divert attention away from what were obvious shortcomings and lapses in judgment that led to the taliban serge over the weekend. now biden did try to sell the ongoing evacuation as if it is some sort of success. now, there is a situation as we understand where there are a number of american citizens that are still stuck in cobble. now it's also important to note that, you know,
6:11 pm
mainstream media has been quite critical of joe biden, on this certain networks that tend to lean towards the democratic party and their coverage of launched scathing attacks on biden and how he handled the situation. secretary blink, and how did president invite and get this so wrong? how could officials have miss fis? how did it happen? how do we get here? does president abide not bear the blame for this disastrous exit from afghanistan? now in his speech biden admitted that the administration thought up until the very last moments that the afghan forces would not collapse so quickly, the taliban would not be able to search ahead so quickly. and it's also important to note when he was speaking, he seemed to indicate that it was not the time for criticism. the can overwhelming consensus was that this was not what they were not going to collapse the afghan forces. they were not going to leave or not going to just abandon and then put down their arms and take off to be plenty of time to criticize a 2nd guess massage races. but now, now,
6:12 pm
i'm focused on getting this job done. now, seeing as this was a joint nato alliance that was operating in afghanistan, the hasty pull out has put that nato alliance once again into question. in europe, there are some that are beginning to call into question america's leadership of the nato coalition. no, we have not heard any like overt, straightforward criticism. some tropes have been found in the media lately and in the public domain. it's a remarkable change in tone because up until then biden had been viewed as the opposite of donald. trump has more reliable and trustworthy by the nato allies. however, there seems to be rising disillusionment among nato allies. and joe biden, though, says this is not something he's concerned about. i have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world. i've spoken with our nato allies.
6:13 pm
we've spoken with nato allies, the secretary state or national security via he's been in contact with his counterparts throughout the world. and our allies, as has the general r c b, i keep calling them in general, but my secretary defense the fact of the matter is i have not seen that matter of fact the exact opposite i've got. now donald trump has said that this is the greatest strategic error in u. s. history. he called it capitulation. donald trump has said that joe biden owes america an apology. the world is now looking on and watching the scenes and cobble the white house is certainly under quite a bit of fire. joe biden's, whole numbers are dropping. many are looking on the situation and afghanistan and saying that the united states seems to have pretty much dropped the ball here. caliber in reporting that will washington's allies are also counting the cost of events after their 20 year campaign in afghanistan. the simon right now explains
6:14 pm
betrayed, abandoned latin fend for themselves, forced to face up to their own weakness, not the poor people of afghanistan on america night. so i have been left humiliated by washington. sudden decision dropped back on in the deep do do. on the 2 decades britton's defense, secretary even started welling up to me get back. somebody get back the u. s. golf and so forth. it didn't enough time to get people out and have to send some troops back. us general mar, community kind of admitted they had the off the taliban to help them get american safely away through the state department. but taliban are facilitating the safe passage to the airport for american citizens. embarrassing. what was embarrassing that it was for washington night, so i like the room is, are they willing even consulted on the timeline? what consultations did happen?
6:15 pm
but julie ignored, we have seen the consequences of a difficult decision made by 30 allies together. when you decide to end them intermission, that the nato gentle factory, then release my mouth open welding, bending the june a little bit. because even in the nighttime and the degree there was a need to come back and it's done literally none of the others wanted to leave in the dead of night, leave the current developed more to the point they wanted us to stay behind. because without america, the other 29 men measure about you for the mascot on me regimen and taking on the taliban into play. molly, useful. what really must things off the for the trunk? truth bombs about how useless nato minus america actually is. dividing came into office, thanks for this, but our alliance, just a strong foundation, which we can our collective security and prosperity can continue to be built. but
6:16 pm
he didn't mean it. uncle joe made his eyes look more pointless than ever. the 1st opportunity for you to be in teresa money was that all? did we just feel that we had to follow the united states and hope the dollar william depressed it would be all right on the 9th. if that's exactly why in the west could not continue this us lead mission emission, conceive acute in support, and defense of america without american logistics with us guys. american money got ahead to say out loud in jim and children, anglo american lawyers by saying we'll basically dependent on the decisions of the us government. father's money. micron is too busy, lurching right to win an election thing he's most worried about stopping refugees heading is way in a petition. we need to ensure that we are protected from a large hill influx that cannot detrimental effects. ordinary ass guy left on their
6:17 pm
own. again, there have been some talk about trying to control the tunnel by using the weapon of choice functions. i doubt it's going to work. he's why and how about have over in afghanistan represents challenges for china, but also opportunity and aging has been laying the groundwork for some time for these quote unquote friend really friendly relations and they help to establish with the group. oh yes. join is coming on, board is checkbook and design the on the on the mind. us both china already step and good job. everyone turns on these. i think it's always worth giving a good shout out to some old school cynical with self preservation. on the one hand, this guy stands as president of gone poorly, fled the country on sunday, with 4 cars and a helicopter stacked with cash. he's denied that by the way, my congratulations go to the gym forces whose priorities are well in order that may
6:18 pm
have left behind a load of their local support staff that they did find time to take home. yet 60000 can be no more than 300 bottles of wine. around watching, i'll teach the crowd to the streets of paris for the week of protest against the policy will be reporting from the capital just off the product. oh i use i me ah
6:19 pm
ah, i use join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business. i'll see you then in the moon. the
6:20 pm
hello again, frances, enter the 6 weekend or running against vaccination passes after authorities made the mandatory to enter public places. almost 200000 have been eyes on the streets again to protest from paris porter slayer sent this report, standing quite a significant place in paris in the square in front of the lou museum. so this had huge symbolism for the people of france. and i would say, easily $10000.00 people have turned out at this particular demonstration, it's one of the 4 that is happening concurrently. often in fact, a day in paris alone is more than $200.00 demonstrations across the whole country. now people have taken to the chief because they're against the company to be vaccination. at the same time, miss march started at the offices of a p agency prong crate. and that is because credits are against the mainstream. french media that they say has been incorrectly proclaimed that the coven
6:21 pm
vaccination is 100 percent safe. they also argue that they've been depicted negatively in the media, that they, people who are pro liberty, not people who are and i'll coast and he back says and all the others. however, this is the, as i mentioned, the 6 consecutive, we can, that we've seen protests like this across crowns, and the protests have sometimes resulted in violence. this particular protest has been organized by the yellow bit. and we'll take a quick look now at what some of the previous protests have seen. the news, the
6:22 pm
the now there is a strong police presence. as the protest had marched down some of the main street, given pirates, the police have been following behind in various bands and on foot. and at the same time we all, what's the thing? a strong police presence here. they've been following the marches down the main streets of paris whenever the marches of the police have been jeering at them and a short time ago. there was some shuffling happening here in front of the loose museum. i've been talking to a number of the protesters, and the point that they've really been making is that they worried about the future of france. they think that the country has not been divided into those 2 pro to help cost that is needed to into any kind of topic space and have been in practice for almost 2 weeks now. and those who are against take a listen. i'm here to to show the work that liberty
6:23 pm
is really close to everything we have. you know, so if you're taking our living, what do we have? what do we have left? nothing, all of these rules, this new rules about the past are just are just worsening. and i think we don't have any freedom left and, you know, trying to like sneak children, try trying to forbid people from going to the restaurant, etc. is like, you know, a big change in our society and that's about it. i think i'm here because i just don't want to society comp coming towards this. and i'm fighting for my own generation. i'm fighting for the next generation as well. i want them to know what freedom is. now you can see to the right of me a position of police bad. these are police who are inside the vehicles. there are many that are amongst the crowd with
6:24 pm
a veterans and courting off the protest as the concern of course is that that could result in violence still to seem to say, but certainly a strong feeling here. and we are witnessing bigger numbers and we saw last we came so it's 30 is an indication, the anger and frustration on the streets of paris is far from over the poor slave. there will be more laughter, more than 200 days in lockdown, and has also boiled over in the strolling city of melbourne with clashes between anti restriction protestors and police this weekend. and more than $200.00 were detained as offices 5 pepper sprayed, break up, the cried. 6 police officers did require hospital treatment. and every protest you're arrested 9 faces, fines of around 5 and a half hours in destroying dollars, such just under for us demonstrations, arrested after authorities extended lock dance across the entire state. the victoria for another 2 weeks of restriction, also in place to other regions,
6:25 pm
author spiking case cases. similar rallies were seen in sydney. and for the for the fall out from the pandemic continues over the u. s. to because the number of doctors, their medical institutions and i denying care to those unvaccinated against cove with 19 even if they do have life threatening conditions in the state of alabama, which has america's lowest inoculation. right? adults laid out why he won't be treating any body with act a jap. if patients asked why i told them cove, it is a miserable way to die and i can't watch them die like that. unfortunately, many have declined to take the vaccine and some end up severely ill or dead. when washington a patient will deny deliver transplant as he didn't have a co vaccine. he says he's not a nancy vac, sir, but his medical condition means that a job could cause serious complications. we put the issue of who should be treated
6:26 pm
up for debate. he is for certain people talk of actually him because he's caressing . he's refusing to see his patients last 5 years, actually breaking up across retired because they are cheap. you mustn't from intentional wrong thing and all these patients are not the same. i don't want to say at risk of home, i think everyone should be treated regardless of whether they do or not. i just kind of help thinking that we've got to get out of this somehow, although i did, which couldn't be a mismatch. so we're now in a situation where we got found people dying on a daily basis, again, got a 3rd or 4th way in the u. k. in america last tracks. now, i'm thinking that this doctor's really trying to make a point. the only way to get that normally we're not going to control the infections. i think it's just trying to convince people really, and people should be doing their own research,
6:27 pm
but they should be looking in in the right places. i think when we are in a position in the united kingdom, where we are 8075 percent of the population vaccinated and rising. why all we actually trying to discriminate against bully horizon, though small number of people who chose not to take the boxes very often. the reason it really makes me feel better at a middle class in a policy has no medical benefits. what's happening with this 5 ration program? people hoping us by source or bains, even with good advertising, a ninety's females to discuss this with your daughter. see if it's the right thing for you as an individual for your individual, how these fact sheets and then you can picture in the us. for example, we're in a situation where we've already got 6 people. hospital. we haven't got time and 3 people. so we need to just fax might as many people as possible we're going in for the winter and we want to try to avoid, you know, the last time we try when this ludicrous situation. we're so very recently,
6:28 pm
if you've been vaccinated twice and you tested negative for the crowd of ours, if you're in the same room or somebody tested both, if you were forced to stay off work 600000 people today are not doing work in the united kingdom anything, any medical procedure carries way that risk. you've got to balance thought risk for very many people being box next will be the right decision. and for all that, it will not be the right decision. but we have not mandated vaccines. those saw an axiom program. it's been overwhelming success. leave people alone. you don't want to do it. the danger of forcing them is not worth it. another news tonight, vladimir putin, his ankle and merck, which oppressed kiev on it's quote, alarming legislation that risks re igniting violence from the east of the country. russia's president made the request to his gym and came to part after their meeting on friday ahead of her visit. to cry was it wouldn't it though it is
6:29 pm
alarming that ukraine has adopted a number of laws and by laws that contradict the meanest agreements, it looks like the leadership of this country has decided to abandon a peaceful resolution to the situation. and in this regard, we once again on the chancellor taking into account her upcoming visit to kia, to urge the ukrainian side with regard to implementation of all earlier agreed obligations will put in added that more than a 1000 seas 5 violations have been recorded. any ukraine already this month pointed out new legislation being considered by ukraine's parliament would essentially mean kiev exit from the mince protocol that lays at peace terms with its breakaway regions, as well as ukraine piecing merkel discuss the growing crisis in afghanistan and the north stream to pipeline linking the 2 countries to provide gas to europe. geopolitical, i want to say rein rock 1st thing that germany has been to hesitant and its approach to resolving the cranium conflict. i think both countries,
6:30 pm
one to exert some influence on germany to take either one or another side. the role of germany has been to has a tent and germany has not really also taken its responsibility to make it greater efforts in the years to resolve the conflict for germany with quite neutral alike. none of my business, and this is not really a strategy that will bring us further. and it situation which shows that the influence of germany is not very far reaching and in that region anymore. and this is also a part of the doubtful legacy of germany. policy for.
