11:00 am
ah, the headlines are not us troops quit tech he gun based. the taliban make significant advances in the north. but president biden, apparently not been moved to talk about it by happy the outbreak in london, new york over the weekend as julian us on tomorrow. yet another day behind bars for the impact of his case and may go far further. i think we'll start getting everything in western notions of, you know, unity on america's independence day. the celebrations of blotted over racial issues on the program. we looked at how even the saw on stripes now divide the nation.
11:01 am
ah, we do a top stories for this our, on this monday program. welcome to it. this is asi international. but the us is leaving its main military base and off canister. that would be the bad grammar feels very close to the capital cobble. it's been the heart of military operations in the country now for 2 decades. as us coalition forces moved into the base at the end of 2001, it developed into a huge facility housing up 210000 troops and more than a 100 aircraft making it vi strategic point of operations for washington and nato allies in the region meanwhile, a dozen more districts in the country have fallen under the control of taliban militants. however, the american president has so far been rather unwilling to address the issue. the taliban reported, i think
11:02 am
a deadline for all foreign troops to be gone by september. after making attempts to seize the abandoned background base, which local authorities say is also attracting lewters, i don't is, law poured into the information that we have american forces left bag room air base last night. this has not been officially carbonated and reported to us, but from the ground we get these information from the situation in the area as several looters, opportunists, and others, storm background air through this morning. and with a quick response from our district administration, we were able to fall their plants a more important question present itself. how long will the afghan government be able to hold it? because looters weren't the only ones excited about the us withdrawl. the taliban is coming back in force and according to reports just in june, they seized more than 700 trucks and armored vehicles from afghan security forces and have also gained significant chunks of territory throughout the country.
11:03 am
humanitarian organizations are now in panic. warning of yet another wave of refugees from the country and the afghans themselves, more than a 1000 of which have recently fled to the jacob stand to seek asylum. say they want to escape the fighting by any means necessary. the. they got it. there's no what was that i'm leaving 3 to 4 days with some friends relief because of the lack of job who'd leave this country otherwise? ah . where there are concerns about the return of the taliban. therefore, when to leave the country before the situation gets worse than most of the districts of school. and there is not even one district where there is no fighting . the taliban has even reach. the chief of police and provincial camp come here to
11:04 am
get possible get out of afghanistan is not the i must get out with all the problems who would want to leave. and if it's done in the, it's very hard to leave here. i'm going to go to belgium, the the decades of fighting and instability and of gas than have already displaced some 2700000 people from their home country. in terms of numbers that 2nd only to syria. but this mass us exodus might make matters even worse. so what does joe biden think of all this after all journalists have been growing him on this issue for a while now. well, apparently not a lot. he'd rather talk about happy things like fireworks and the 4th of july is
11:05 am
going to be in the next few days. my fall the we are hearing around the comment taking more and more than happy to help provide any kind of a parent for military or me. i'm i can answer any more question again is to look at life. we're bringing out our, bring our troops home. we have all across america. people are going to ball games, i guess if you pretend to problem doesn't exist at all. just go away. perhaps that's just uncle sam's method. in the end, the u. s. came it saw and then it just left. and the question on everyone's mind right now is, what the hell was it all for? join list on the political and list a robot inlet cash. so as to pentagon withdrawal actually symbolizes the entire 20 year campaign. seeing the massive death and destruction brought on afghanistan
11:06 am
and the fact that the illicit drug trade expanded with us presence there. and of course the taliban has been able to expand with u. s. presence there all these years. americans not really knowing what the war is, even about the former president of a dentist on how need congress. i has even said that the u. s. role and war in the country. the longest in us history has actually allowed extremism and terrorism to have free reign, essentially in the country, and has been a spectacular failure. what we could see is that the united states may be, enters back into us, and he's done restore under the bomber administration, which joe biden was part of, that obama had no problem getting back in iraq after he announced that he was going to withdraw all his forces and it is something of course, which is not something to out of the ordinary for the united states,
11:07 am
back and involved in a war, which it says that it has withdrawn from in an exclusive interview as folks posted for the taliban political office and cut out of told us the war with ultimately, based on a miscalculation not unfortunately, the situation in the country is getting worse. if not for the occupation, the situation would not have worse than to that extent. they should have thought about that before. invading under the country like af canister, and now the american president has announced the foreign american troops will finally leave our country. there is no need to lay foreign troops in the country. we want to solve problems through negotiation, and we have a maintaining such a position from the very beginning. but we will negotiate with gene not as a representative of the people, but us with just one of the guns sides. we cannot recognize the regime which has appeared along with the occupants, which has completely corrupted to have
11:08 am
a protest and outrage showers. julian assange marks yet another birthday behind bars. hundreds of support have gathered in london and new york to celebrate his 50th over the weekend and demand his release. washington is still seeking his extradition, where if found guilty, he could be sentenced up to a 175 years. julian, his own, just charged with conspiracy to her government computers and espionage. he gone to huge global attention when a wiki, lynx published classified military documents, allegedly exposing war crimes in iraq and afghanistan. and over the past decade, a san jose spent 7 years in the ecuador and embassy in london, and 2 years and a british maximum security prison. the latest twist, in his case, came when a key witness against him or portly, admitted to giving false testimony. but we spoke with a philosopher's trouble is jack, who says the assange case is exposed, how certain countries are trying to maintain an illusion of freedom. a socialist
11:09 am
acumen is not just what people usually being disclosed to some documents and so on. in our songs made us aware that we are in a new era where state control and social is going over. our eggs is much more resigned because it doesn't directly in being on or leave me our freedom. you still you after the 7 inch and to one you are already be money related and under control. the wish to maintain the idea of freedom. there is no the logic is lost and when somebody be this
11:10 am
follows experience of freed on will be demo states always. so the link between comp, i'm used to reach control and us google and so on. and state secret agencies like in their say and so on i being a sounds started getting this challenge everything that follows in west no sense of freedom. 2 many associate the 4th of july with parades parties, and fireworks. does. the us celebrates the bus of a nation, but this year the holiday meant to unite the country is ultimately splitting it apart. democratic congresswoman corey bush posted that hold the holiday is about american freedom, but it's only for whites. the country has stolen land and black people still aren't free. well, the truth is, you can imagine promote all sorts of reactions with some ultimately denouncing her
11:11 am
view of this national holiday. republican pointed out that bush herself is black and went from being a nurse to then. so thing in the house of representatives and other claim message i dishonored every black person who ever fought for the nation with race now even being taught in schools and causing division along with the symbols at the heart of the republic as he's met at garcia. now looks at what american identity really means today. what makes it american, is it being a, a patriot lesson serving in the marines. paying taxes is waving the flag, putting up the stars and stripes and poll outside your house. know that according to that media, just might make you of fanatical republican today flying the american flag from the back of a pickup truck or over a lawn is increasingly seen as a clue will be. it's an imperfect one to a person's political affiliation in a deeply divided nation. while they're right about division, which the media,
11:12 am
of course fad, inflamed in the name of ad revenue. but it's everywhere. people see everything differently. everyone has an opinion that they'd rather they'd rather die than give up. everything is a battle ground, race, religion, routing, sex, orientation, police, immigration, and war. there is almost nothing left that americans agree or have the flag symbol of unity. as now as symbol of oppression. it is chatted dated, divisive an incorrect, it no longer represents democracy and freedom, it no longer represents all of us. it's not fair to be forced to own it. it's signed for a new flag. what if the flag looked like this? and just like that out of the sheet as soon you can see it a little way down the road protests and counter protests about changing the flag riots and shootings and enmity. because one person's idea is
11:13 am
a bob winnable to another. you're found on an idea. we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men and women are created equal, endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, life, liberty to suit, happiness, sounds corny, to america. we learn this in grade school and high school. and the idea that seems to have expired, what did they learn in schools now? critical race theory, the idea that no, we weren't created equal, but we didn't leave equal. and that racism has tainted every aspect of institutional america. that's what they learn in school. now, a far cry from created equal, you talk about critical race theory, which is pretty much going to be teaching you how to hate each other. how to do, how we treat people is based on who they are and in a minute. this is, this is how children think right in critical race nearing want to in one couldn't
11:14 am
only wonder how the land they go to go off the asian americans next. and then latino paps maybe a few decades down the line in the sick twist of already they'll turn it against african americans at the end of the day, america is bursting at the seams. it's. it's not over population. it's over belief where everyone has an idea that they think is better than everyone else's. and they demand that people respect it. a grave risk to the environment. the warning from greenpeace on the weekend, the underwater gas pipelines that live out the gulf of mexico was certainly part of it. and the incident took place less than 200 meters from a drilling platform and small t, a quote, see a fire for 5 hours before being extinguished. and the company responsible is reportedly more than a $100000000000.00 in debt on the reportedly failing to maintain its facilities.
11:15 am
however, the regulator insist everything's fine. the mexican energy environment and safety agency follows up on the event that occurred in the cam. petrucci prob, related to a gas line. the incident did not generate any spill footage of the thing in the gulf. as res, painful memories of a catastrophe. just about 11 years ago now, the deep water horizon. gasoline spewed more than 200000000 gallons of oil into the gulf of mexico, covering thousands of kilometers with crude from louisiana to florida. are portly, the worst fill in history, the wild life disaster killed nearly a 1000000 buds alone environmental campaign. all of a tickle says we've been lucky with the latest accident. it looked absolutely scary and appalling. the most surprising thing about it is that it seems to be an environmental term is almost entirely hung. so i'm not saying that we weren't
11:16 am
find, you know, the school or the dead sea, but you know, that will be but it seems to be just on a new home. this is absolutely pales in comparison in terms of the environmental impacts. the leak was coast off completely within 5 hours and didn't touch an environmental terms. if you're going to have a leak nice, then this appears to lead me fine or natural gas. it is actually much better in a way that it does catch far than the g. g simply release students to the atmosphere because me thing is a very potent greenhouse gas over 20 years time horizon is a few times more powerful than condo it. so in terms of climate change is actually much better than that. it should be the high chord for england and wales has rejected a challenge by a former inmate who claim she was sexually assaulted by a transgender prisoner and rule that trans women,
11:17 am
sex offenders can be held in female jails. but the claimant expressed fears the ruling could lead to more victims. i bring this challenge, i did not seek to prevent trans women in prison from living in dignity or to exclude the old trans women from women's prisons. however, i feel that trans women have a history of violence and sexual affairs and against women should not be in a situation where they can put o a safety at risk. the claimant's alleged attacker is said to have been convicted of serious sex offences against women. although the incident has not been officially confirmed, the judgment notes almost a 100 sexes salter code and female prisons in england and wales from 2016 to 20. 19 a 7 were allegedly by transgender women who didn't have a gender recognition certificate. the judge accepted a female inmates fear of but tact, but defended his decision. i readily accept the proposition that some em,
11:18 am
perhaps many women prisoners, may suffer fear and acute anxiety if required to share prison. accommodation and facilities with the transgender woman who has male genitalia, individual decisions may be susceptible to challenge, but that does not render the policies unlawful regard opposing reaction to the issue from august. assaults in prison, sexual assaults in prisons are a big problem. women, a woman man on man, women, men, jones didn't do women own women. it is a big problem in prisons anyway. so knowing that half of all trumps gender, people in custody, have sexual and violent assaults in their history. then the prison service is required to go through the appropriate risk assessment. i think what happened in this particular case was those risk assessment failed assault upon transgender
11:19 am
prisoners is also at a very high level. so generally violence and sexual assaults in prisons is really the headline story here. broadly, there are 2 policies that are followed. one depends on whether or not you are legally classed as of the gender you identify with. so in other words, have you got gender recognition certificate? if you have the starting point as you would be allocated to the female state because the law considers you a woman. if you don't, that was done a comprehensive risk assessment. if you've got on speak hypothetically here a male sex offender convicted, raping for example, women in those circumstances, i would argue it would be entirely inappropriate to put that person in the general population in the women, the state, and the policy of the prison service. and the ministry of justice foresee star,
11:20 am
what the court did make clear is that there is scope for challenge in individual cases. if the particular risk level for an individual prisoner is such that it's not appropriate, that somebody should be held. for example, in the email of state, when that can inappropriate circumstances be challenged, but it's case by case hundreds of children have been wounded and 7 years of war in the eastern ukraine, often by ordinance fired near their homes are just dropping outside their bedroom. windows ortiz launched a children of war project to help get to get the help, i should say to those who needed the most of correspondent roman culture. ref has this report from the region. such a family lives just a few 100 meters from the dedication line between the ukrainian military and the self proclaimed the nest republic. he last part of his hand after a rocket, he tried to throw a lot of fuel. backyard exploded. he still shy to show his hand to strangers,
11:21 am
but that could soon change when his flown to moscow to receive a new prosthetic replacement, his re now not to be officially disabled and to get his driving license. when he turns 18 and the head of the children of war project and my vision is that we take care not only of little children, but also older ones. these are not only children with expose of injuries, although they are the majority of the moment, but also all the children. the project was created with the support of the editor in chief margarita simon young. costa lost his arm 4 years ago and needed several operations after a shell he found, while fishing exploded, a specialist takes a cast mold for a new by jani, prosthetic, and cost your nose. life is far from over. come september. he will struck to school with a state of the art functional arm, but he saw him. thank you very much for my sons by only post faces. thank you to
11:22 am
the people who helped us to all those who didn't say indifference or trouble. a year ago, doctor's extracted, at least 40 shell fragments from the most body after explosion rocked his village. he also lives just a few 100 meters from ukrainian military positions. on the horizon, we can see the positions in the cranium military, their armed forces. you can imagine that right now they're looking at us through their sites were driving straight along the dimmer cation line. local medics managed to save the muslim from amputation, and he will soon undergo an operation and rehabilitation in russia. carina just gave birth to triplets, a joyous occasion for the war torn area and to potentially huge burden for this young family. after a cold for help, we collected enough funds to buy them and all season baby carriage and the stock of diapers. the 7 years civil war in the of ukraine claimed the lives of more than 120
11:23 am
children, according to estimates. more than 260 kids have been wounded and many are in desperate need of aid. to give them a chance for a better life artsy, special humanitarian project. children a for has been set up to work directly with the families needing medical help from sourcing biotech prosthetics to treating those with illnesses such as cancer. the schemes already assisted more than a dozen kids from the region. the projects working with donations from thousands around the world to restore hope to the region. i hope that the boys and girls hit by the conflict can have a bright future for me on costs, or if our team scores, all rights groups have signed an open letter to the president biden, demanding the us and lethal as strikes outside of recognized battlegrounds. we write to demand an end to the unlawful program of lethal strikes outside any
11:24 am
recognized battlefield, including through the use of drones. this program is a centerpiece of the united states forever was successive. presidents have now claimed the unilateral power to authorize secretive extra judicial killing outside any recognized battlefield with no meaningful accountability for wrongful death and civilian lives. lost and injured. we asked one of the secretaries as to why he got involved. first of all, i think we signed that letter because don't it acts as a tendency to petty disgraceful and very wonderfully dangerous a new, a new tool in the war. maybe one letter maybe signed by 7 and authorization does not have immediate impact. but we like to educate, we like to mobilize the american public opinion against the whole global war, and that this war is against american values. this body is creating,
11:25 am
like it is mentioned in the letter racial injustice. those were killing the muslim that black the minorities, this was not the solution. these are, this is not the solution to have peace in the ward. nearly 500 strikes were conducted against targets outside of afghanistan, iraq, and syria between 292015. the u. s. acknowledged more than $100.00 civilian deaths while rights groups say the figure is likely much nearer a 1000. dr. buccheri again says drone strikes should be made illegal at the un level donte or bast, the september 11. and the united states was it was in global water and data. and i think what they got instead of destruction in the muslim country, especially, and also with huge financial loss for medical money should be spending the american development infrastructure development and over in the better image of america use

of grown is especially very it's a very dark optimist issue that you are the machine you are. you are saving your life, your personal buy. you are calling human over the assembly and it should be declared at the level that it is illegal to use this type of rap on that. these type of tools in the walk. let's check out some other headlines for you just embrace quickly anti gay rioters of a storm. the l g b t community offers and ga, capitol tbilisi, forcing the cancellation of the countries 1st ever gay pride event march for dignity gay activists say the government's failing to protect them with international observers demanding authorities stop further violence. officials have launched a series of planned terrorist attacks have been prevented by authorities in southern russia. a 6 there's lots of state followers were killed in a raid when they resisted arrest. a 2 others have been detained. an investigation
