among allies for the next 30 years, and how the victim say they still live with the consequences. today. the a mission far from complete about president biden confirms the us will be our to get this done by the end of next month, leaving the country to fend for itself. no mission accomplished the right and the responsibility of afghan people alone to decide their future. and how they want to run their country. meanwhile, as refugees continue to flee the country and they can you life in europe and the brutal rape and murder of a 13 year old girl in austria, towns of an afghan. mike, when once again puts the issue of immigration firmly back in the spotlight when the discord hits belgium over a french plans to build off shore turbines. as high as the i phone tower,
we hear from coastal communities who tell us why they are far from blown away by the idea. if this has any impact on the territory, why is it not the inhabitants to the side? why is someone empowered making the decision ah, mid day in the rushing capital, hope you're having a fine friday wherever you're catching the program from today, our top story, joe biden has defended pulling crib zoned of of gun less than leaving the country to face what he's called the strongest tell upon, in 20 years, but after 2 decades of war, the u. s. president believes there's nothing more washington can do. now, mission accomplish i. mission was accomplished in that we get to scott some and one
in terrorism is not emanating from that part a little. we achieved those objectives. that's why we, when we did not go to afghanistan to nation bill. and it's the right and the responsibility of afghan people alone to decide their future and how they want to run their country. what the us military moving on it in a hurry of ghana stone is already facing new challenges. afghans have been seen selling, plundered us goods after looters ransacked. what was america's name, military base, and background. us troops slipped all of the earth fields in the dead of night without notifying local forces. that's the claim of africa. officials, the pentagon denies about seeing the african military was well informed of the withdrawal. nevertheless, locals living and working your by are worried that but last lies i had calling them, they got everyone who's worried about how long the uncertainty will continue. no one is doing business, the markets, and the people that work there have been badly affected. business has collapsed
because there is no stability before when the us didn't plan withdraw, things were stable, but the instability is increased since they left me. i'm very clear the yes, have contracts with market owners here and we used to purchase from them that withdraw will affect our business. we can buy any goods because there are transportation problems. well answering questions from the media. the president rejected comparisons to the 1973 u. s. paula from science vietnam, where the government fell 2 years later, biden claimed there's little chance for the taliban to take control of galler done . but his remarks come of the groups already been making sweeping territorial gains . well, this is one, know the number of front lines between tell about fighters, enough gun forces. the army has been forced onto the back foot with more than a 1000 soldiers recently fleeing across the border to g. for the latest estimate
itself, the tell about no controls. one 3rd of afghanistan was former united nations weapons inspector, scott ritter, had told the program the u. s. mission in the country was far from the success. if all are, all we want to do is kill been law and in the mail. if we could have done all of that much sooner without undertaking that, which we did undertake why and can say otherwise. but the reality is we were involved in nation building. we did build a nation in afghanistan, a failed nation, and now we're abandoning it. you know, i will be the last person to argue in favor of a continued american military presence, but we need to be honest with the people with their neighbors or regional neighbors and the world. what we did for the last 20 years was fail. we lost and now we should be looking to the international community,
especially afghan stance regional neighbors offer assistance in helping come up with a solution by pretending that we're a mission accomplished. that we, we did what we wanted to do and now it's on the ask and people to fix this mess. that's just disingenuous. scott ritter, so in less than 8 weeks, the u. s. military operation comes to an end enough gamma phone. whichever way the future plays out, it will affect lines both inside and outside the country. according to recent estimates, the exodus of afghan refugees as well on the rise. the number is closing in on 3000000, putting an incredible strain on countries forced to cope with the new comers. germany, france, and romania top the list of you countries taking in the most the afghan migrants in austria. first of all, refugees, or know from montgomery it's done on the large numbers are also bringing a host of problems some gruesome earlier for tranquil reports.
imagine you're in charge of a country shocked by a creepy rape skin. the victim who died had just become a teenager. the suspected rapists are young and again, refugees. you've got no choice but to take action. if you don't, the public won't get it. and that's if you're lucky, if you get too tough on those who escape misery and war back home in their home countries, political opponents will give you a p r b t plus that will raise some liberal u eyebrows. let's hear from the man who has lately been facing this precise challenge. sebastian kurtz, the chancellor of austria. often i find it intolerable for people to come here, sing seeking protection, and then commit cruel and barbaric crimes in austria. politically, this means for me that we will stick to our line with me there will definitely never be a whole to deportation to county, stan or a watering down of asylum laws for asylum seekers who permits crimes. what exactly
did he mean by barbaric the body of a 13 year old girl was found next to a tree in vienna. she reportedly died of an overdose. after a group of afghan use had given her drugs and sexually assaulted her 3 suspects are in custody. police are still looking for one more in austria, more than 4 percent of all rapes, an 8 and a half percent of all murders are committed by afghans. of course, not all refugees are thugs, but e statistics in 2020 show that afghanistan citizens have the highest number of asylum applications in austria and for 3 years in a row, they also are the 2nd largest group of asylum seekers arriving in europe as a whole right after serious, some are worried that higher numbers of refugees could mean more potential trouble . i want to be clear. the u. s. military mission can stand, continues to the end of august, where the future of of dennis day and looking murky beyond the withdrawal of us
troops and the taliban making large territorial gains. it's only natural that a new wave of refugees from there is expected in europe. it's obvious that austria can close its borders. it has already regularly tightened it's asylum policies recently. the justice minister for the green party says more such steps wouldn't be right for the country. the asylum law has already been tightened in recent years. i will lose often enough options, but we just have to apply them in a consistent manner. moreover, and 2019 the european court of justice ruled that you members have no right to the port a refugee even for committing a serious crime. if he or she prove that life back home would be in danger. all of this does seem to tie the hands of chancellor curts, who like you've heard, is in favor of different patients for criminals. the minister of interior from mr. kurtz is party has locked horns with the greens justice minister saying he will
push for more rigid migration and repass ration roles at the level. the asylum system is not working, migrants who committed criminal offenses have to be reported immediately. while the advocates of the harsh approach towards refugees in the austrian government are teaming up with colleagues from hungary and the czech republic, the iraq received doesn't exactly paid the way for quick changes in a solemn rules. certainly, they won't be as quick as jo biden's, keen of dennis stand, pull up just something to add to earliest reports member of the austrian federal console from the freedom party. dr. johan us, who told us it is astonishing in his view, that austria house and yet send pack a single off can migrant asylum system as we have it in europe is just a way to turn illegal immigration into legal immigration when the illegal immigrant arrives in any country of europe. ready and he, he says asylum,
asylum immediately becomes illegal immigrant in the european asylum procedure, which usually takes place is a general problem, which you console was one or 2 measures, at least the mini stick minister of interior mist. anyhow, my has now admitted that the asylum system up to europe in union is a disaster. but austria and the government has done nothing to change that or to avoid it. because austria, through the dreams of the european union, has collaborated in creating the system. we didn't send 11 single africans. i've gone home for years in austria, not one, and hundreds we street, for example, have a quote of about 50 percent, the austrian citizen in the long run. this is a problem because it tracks and tracks migrants from all the 3rd world.
well austria and feminists have been having their say on the issues and they've accused local media, racist reporting, which they said by mike was a group of activists, even storm the offices of a local newspaper, confronting journalist. we've got video of that story. you can find not a whole lot more decides on r t dot org troubles is blowing in over francis plans to build off shore wind farms with turbines as high as the length of 3 football pitches. belgium has launched legal action against the move after locals outlined their objections, paris. nevertheless, as the wind it seals, the president of the commission for energy regulation, even suggested opponents should have their energy cut off. charlotte duban ski travel to the area to discover more. it may look calm, but a storm is brewing, and it's a huge one. france plans to build an offshore wind farm just off the coast here.
the turbines would be as high as the eiffel tower, around 300 meters tool. so they'd be pretty imposing. the idea has caused a fury in neighboring belgium so much so that the q e u countries affect to go head to head in court as belgium threatens to sue a complaint will be launched with a european commission because our country has not been consulted about the location of the area, while european directives require it independently owned the french belgium board of that anger is palpable. since it is very close to the boarders. about 10 kilometers, it will be very visible from our beaches, this landscape and the feeling we have of liberty and seeing the thing to horizon is actually our main products. that is why people come to our shores. that is why
people buy property with an ocean view. it's because as he does horizon, they don't come to department to see windmills for francis. very important project . i understand that. but that doesn't mean that you have to put older burdens with the neighbors and take all the advantages of nations. so as you've heard that there is really strong opposition to this wind farms from the belgian side, but they are not alone in this. we're about to cross the french border, where there are protesting groups who have been opposing this windfall ever since. it was suggested that if you do a little bit of research, you will find that this project, this planned in the heart of the natural habitat, which is supposed to be a safe space for the species living there. and it's also a historic site of operation. dynamo, meaning this project also does not respect history from, says president mat, call and have set himself up as this defender over the environment. now he won't
promise to have 40 percent of its energy to come from renewable sources. so wind farms that by 2030. now, those wind farms are crucial kogan. that idea, and the pressure is also mounting off. the high council for climate in france says that the country is going to miss its greenhouse gas emission targets that failure would be embarrassing. but reading foams like the one that's planned for here are not popular with everyone. if i go to petition and despite that, when the minister came to dunkirk and we tried to meet her, she refused to talk to us. and then she came to tell us the details of a press conference. she told us that this project will be carried out no matter the opinion of the locals. if this has any impact on the territory, why is it not the inhabitants to the side? why is someone in paris making the decision locals here have even demanded
a referendum over the project, but that has been completely dismissed by the state france. he's also ignoring the, please from its fellow e. u. member. the government is determined to conduct offshore wind farm projects. will of course, continue the dialogue with our belgium and france to take into account the concerns . but the fact is that the dunkirk park is strategic for the implementation of our energy program. and that we must not waste any more time. however, that could be scuppered, not only has the french military now decided on new restrictions and constraints as to where wind farms can be built. but the senate in france is also just adopted a measure that could allow call madge to veto such plans. meaning that france's idea to be greener than green could soon have the wind knocked out of
them. charlotte, diva sky for all see on the french belgian border. another story to bring you this friday. a former police officer could become new york next mirror after winning the democratic nomination. he would pick, despite a year of black lives matter protest, which included the funding that police. you remember as one of their stated aims in the city crimes. soaring with new york state governor andrew cuomo to carrying a gun violence disaster emergency. the new my world candidate is eric evans. he served in the police for 22 years and is currently the brooklyn bird president at the forefront to his platform is a commitment to come bobbing gun crime. he supports police reform, but as against the funding, the force if black lives really matter, it can only be against police abuse and has to be against the violence that's sitting apart our communities. people want to feel safe. right now they don't feel
safe. crime is happening all around them. shootings are up. robberies are up, homelessness is up. they see in the subway. they don't feel safe nor subways. they see it out in the streets, in their homes, in the neighborhoods, and they want to feel safe. so this gentleman ran on a platform of public safety and making people feel safe in their resume with them. and that's it. you know, the defined, the police movement has been a large failure. demonizing, an attacking cops has been a failure. and people are ready for change and hopefully this is the capital is to some sort of change. well, it's not just new york polling shows concerns about violent crime or a 4 year high nationwide, with homicide rates climbing across the u. s. chicago mer has asked the president for help after the city, so it's bloodiest weekend on july. 4th, when more than a 100 people were shant policemen. z arkham, again, sees the public is the mounting action, but he isn't sure. leaders are listening to violence is right in people's faces.
you can put all the crime statistics out there, say your crime is going down. you can have all the feel good moments, but people know they see, they know the here. and you can't deny that. so people definitely want to change, they want some sort of action to be taken. they want to feel safe. that's what's all about public safety. now you're not going to convince someone that just finished watching someone get robbed or know about shooting is going on in the neighborhood that they're safe. they want something done. taliban delegates are in moscow will tell you why what's been spoken about after the break. this is our teacher, the the
ah, me, the planets i contribute there we found 25 years ago. took only 4 days to go around the stars, which means to plant is very close. so that was really the big surprise. and we have learned since then, that own system is maybe one among many. that's not the archetype that's not the stand out the way to our planet. another shot because everybody was expecting the planet to look all the same.
ah, 20 minutes past midday here and most welcome back. a new tool which predicts how long patients and long term care are likely to live has been developed by canadian researchers. the calculator titled respect aims to improve the quality of politics cur, those behind it say it'll allow people to spend more time with their loved ones. the respect calculator allows families and their loved ones to plan. for example, that can help and adult or child blend when to take a leave of absence from work to be with a parent or decides when to take the last family vacation together. yeah, the application is already being trialed encountered and the developers say it's designed to help sick elderly people who are often deprived of sufficient care in the last years of their lives. however, it's raised the number of ethical issues such as patient consent on the attitude of
medical workers towards them. we put the development up for debate the so called calculate the fear if he's a dangerous intervention because it gives mister legion of scientific reliability to some, some these in truth a little more than yes, talk an educated guess. if you, i guess, i mean this tool is, is a development from tools that are already used by, by doctors to help anticipate, to identify when patients might be reaching the end of their lives. and to help those individuals make important decisions. but used to go predictions can easily be wrong, and individual cases we have on elias using the us model and that is all the days you are going to die shortly. so that's not bother about trying to save you.
these technology i fear, might encourage the approach as well. like like any, any medical test, it has to be used wisely and interpreted in the light of other information about a patient. and so these sorts of concerns about unreliability actually suggest we should be using this tool rather than what people might already be doctors might already be using, which are less accurate predictors of when somebody might be reaching the end of their life. the don't have any reliable tools, and these new calculator is not liable to, to predict the time of death. and so you will need to have, as proper scientists do, have you need to have some humidity to recognize that there are some things you simply cannot. the same typically busy with the tele bond,
claiming it currently controls 85 percent of afghan territory. a delegation from the group is in moscow right now. for talks it comes after a number of off can soldiers fled across the border into bordering to just on the run, fleeing from advancing taliban fighters. the backdrop, too, of course, being the imminent polite of all american troops from the country. let's go live now to our correspondence, who has been following discussions, eager done off, eager. tell us more about specifically what's on the table, what we can expect and has anything come out of the locations as yet. well, essentially this media conference, it was a massive p r. stand by the taliban. the situation is quite out of the ordinary. see the taliban as a group with their a band in russia. they're designated as terrorists. but lately in the past couple of years or so, moscow has been offering itself as
a platform for talks between the taliban and its opponents, its enemies and so on. so the trumpet ministration, they broke it a deal with a talent, a troops to allow deal. and now the now basically all the processes within the framework of this deal they have, they have been set in motion. so as the us are pulling out of gas has done the taliban on the rise again. so here's how the taliban representatives describe the situation on the ground and that relations with the us right now. more of the negotiations with the us resulted in a deal which stipulated by may american troops with completely withdraw from african territory. however, due to reasons unknown to us, the official deadline was postponed. recently the us troops have pulled out from the biggest military base there, but granted, so we believe americans will keep their promises over. as the united states troops
are leaving of gan has done the taliban on the rise. essentially they've been boasting massive gains territory wise. in fact, according to the representatives of the taliban, they are, they're fight is not good for controlling more than 80 percent of the territory in afghanistan. that's even before all of the united states, troops have had a chance to pull out. it perhaps comes as quite puzzling, if not embarrassing, given how much money and time the united states invested in training and equipping the african regular army. in fact, some soldiers have been fleeing so quickly, the fighting they had to, they had to flee across the borders with iran. and did you get done in the north to jake? it's done being a major rushes ally. well, they are worried, and russia is worried as well, even send its military officers to monitor the situation on the board. and so i
asked the taliban representatives if they realized the consequences of attacking a country that's in the same military block with russia and other nations about your charge. the nation has awarded. they do not have boarding because we had talks with them. we are a lot of contact with them and out of a while, we assure them that there would be another power that create water is part of empower other countries. so that is one thing that they have worries. so essentially the taliban though this is probably one of the main, if not the main reason why they've decided to come here to most to, to give range reassurance is, excuse me, to the kremlin that their ambition do not do they do not spill over. they do not go beyond the borders of their own country, but still moscow is wary. this is how the foreign ministry has described. what
would happen if the taliban was to? well, it was to spill over the borders. pushing for you mister necessary additional measures will be taken the resistor min nation in the spirit of the russian centric alliance to prevent aggression uttered earle provocation. while in general, these representatives of the taliban, they did not sound like a terrorist group at all. it seems they made it very clear that they are trying to be as peaceful as possible that they even promised equal rights to everybody if they come to power. like, for example, education rights to women, which is something you do not expect to hear from a radical islamic movement. they've also told me that they can guarantee the safety to those agen nationals who worked for the us troops during the intervention. like for example, for interpreters, but again the taliban will be the taliban,
so everything they say has to be taken with a pinch of sword. they had previously given reassurances that they would not target or persecute interpreters for the americans that did not reassure those people in afghanistan at all. they still feel abandoned by the big brother by washington. so there's only one way to see if they put their words. they put their money, excuse me, where there was, ah, and that is just to wait. indeed, it is. for thanks very much for taking us through all the us. art sees igor, shit, them all the need to know from the business world expense form takes us beyond the headlines and moment season. the british and american governments have often been accused of destroying lives in their own interest. while you see in this,
these techniques is the state devising message to end essentially destroy the personality of an individual lifetime. means this is how one doctors, theories were allegedly used in psychological warfare against prisoners deemed the danger to the state. that was the foundation for the method of psychological interrogation, psychological torture, disseminated within the us intelligence community, and worldwide among allies for the next 30 years. to have the victim say, they still live with the consequences today. alas, we end appears to be near washington's 20 year. have for 2 nation bill in afghanistan was always going to end this way, a complete and total failure. it is doubtful. the corrupt government in kabul will last long after the american withdrawal of dennis and remains broken and the american people poor and no one is held to account
the news the this is been bus, so if you can't afford to miss, i'm rachel blevins and i'm bridge aboard watching thing coming up around in the court to impose punitive damages on these social media giants. we're going to hold the big tech very accountable. former us president donald trump has filed the lawsuit.
