2:01 pm
i or 9 o'clock on friday night here at moscow. this is archie international. a very welcome to you. we saw the program in, i've got an s dawn where the taliban has been making further territorial gains. it's fighters were filmed, celebrating the latest line graph the jubilation is over the capture of the border crossing with iran. videos on social media portals show. the taliban militants taking down the african flag from the local customs office. in the past week, the group has also taken crossings that lead into both tajikistan and was beckett. meanwhile, us troops were shopping in the country for 20 years are packing their bags. joe biden is defended, sending them home while leaving the country to face what he's called the strongest
2:02 pm
taliban in 2 decades. the us president says simply nothing more for washington to do that. now mission accomplish commission was accomplished in that we get to scott some in widen, and 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. so have a look at this. this is what i've got on looks like right now in terms of who controls what a taliban areas and read to cover an estimated half of the country though the group itself claims to be in control of 85 percent areas in yellow are contested with a pockets of green showing where the government hold sway. and with the us president saying america is achieved its objectives in the country. critics decry the price that's been paid me.
2:03 pm
oh i a i the her the but it wasn't just garbage. the u. s. has left behind, there afghans have been selling plunder to us goods off, looters ransacked. what was america's main military base and background. a us
2:04 pm
troops slip out of the field in the dead of the night without notifying local forces. well, that's the claim of afghan officials. the pentagon denies not saying the ass guy, military was well informed of the withdrawal. nevertheless, locals living and working nearby, worried about what lies ahead. calling them, they've got everyone who's worried about how long the uncertainty will continue. no one is doing business, the markets, and the people that work that have been badly affected business has collapsed because there is no stability before when the u. s. didn't plan withdraw, things were stable, but instability is increased since they left. i mean, i'm very clear the yes had contracts with markets 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. british troops have also now wrapped up their mission and i've gotten the song. according to the u. k. prime minister, most of them have already actually left the country and returned home for the wisdom of that decision was questioned by one of his own. m. p. 's ex soldiers tom
2:05 pm
took a hot, who saw action in afghanistan, who also related how he fought alongside another member of the house. this is an enormously possible issue for me. i didn't meet the hon member for bonds, the central here or in any of the clubs, the think tanks around westman, so i met him about 20 miles to the west of gums here in the desert. as we were fighting side by side against the enemy's. he's just lifted, and the achievements that he has listed were won with the blood of my friends. and i can point him to the grave where they now lay. because that legacy is now one that is in real doubt and we know it. and we know that it's not just his decision. we know that the u. s. decision to withdraw forces was fundamental here. but he can, he explained to me, how does britain this foreign policy work in a country like african it's done. if persistence isn't persistent,
2:06 pm
if endurance doesn't endure, then how can people trust us as an ally? how can people look at us as a friend? we spoke to a former royal air force officer who also served and i've gone on to share his thoughts on the withdrawal and on the entire mission. on the one hand, ethically it's right for us can to determine its own future. that will happen. it's just the future may well be particularly unstable. brucell takes us back to the medieval period of time without the democratic will or the democratic infrastructure being in place. the ask and security forces were established to create it. and i think to be realistic, we need to wait and see what the future holds for tom to have correctly said, we've had 20 years, 20 years with trillions of dollars trying to this campaign. and to achieve what
2:07 pm
we've achieved in 20 years, which is unclear as a military guy myself, i somewhat ashamed of that outcome. ashamed of that. so in less than 8 weeks, but u. s. military operation comes to an end in afghanistan, whichever way the whole future plays out, it will affect lives both inside and outside the country. according to recent estimates, the exodus of african refugees is on the rise considerably. the number is closing in on 3000000, putting an incredible strain on countries forced to cope with the newcomers. germany, france, and romania top the list of e u. countries taking in the most afghan migrants and austria, a 5th of all refugees. now from august on and the large numbers are also bringing a host of problems. some of them gruesome as really a patricia now reports. imagine you're in charge of a country shocked by a creepy rave skin. the victim who died had just become
2:08 pm
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 and 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's lately been facing this precise challenge . sebastian kurtz, the chancellor of austria, often i find it intolerable for people to come here, thing 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 stun or a watering down of asylum laws for asylum seekers. who permits crimes? what exactly did he mean by barbaric ah
2:09 pm
ah, and 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, 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
2:10 pm
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 its 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. our laws offer enough options, but we just have to apply them in a consistent manner. moreover, in 2019, the european court of justice ruled that you members have no ride to the port a refugee even for committing a serious crime. if he or she prove that live by 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, his party has locked horns with the greens justice minister saying he will push for more rigid migration and repack ration rules. at the level. the
2:11 pm
e u silence 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 dana stand, pull up the silent 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. 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 in the stick minister of interior. miss denise has now admitted that the
2:12 pm
asylum system up to europe in union is a disaster, 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 $11.00 single africans, african home for years in austria, not one and hundreds we know austria, for example, have a quote of about 50 percent, the austrian citizen in the long run. this is a huge problem because it tracks and facts migrants from older 3rd world. meanwhile, austria and feminists have been having to say on the issue, they've accused local media or racist reporting, which they say vilified migraines, approve of activists, stephen storm and the offices of a local newspaper, confronting the journalist more on that video and the whole story online at r t dot com right now. haiti next in our program,
2:13 pm
where 17 people have been detained in connection with the motor of haitian president. holman, l moiz, among them 2 americans of haitian descent. we understand police are also looking for 8 other sex suspects in the case. let's learn more about this right now. live to all these hell off in. okay, look, good to see you the, the trickle of information has gotten well under way. now what's, what's the latest in the investigation that you know what we have an ongoing situation where the police are trying to track down suspects. this was quite a high level crime, the killing of the president of haiti. and now we're starting to get a more clear picture of the perpetrators. there is a team of 28 professional assassins. it appears professional killers. now 2 of them apparently were haitian americans. and in addition to that, you had
2:14 pm
a number of people from columbia. many of whom were ex military folks from columbia . now at this point, from what we understand, there was a situation where the police tracked some of the suspects to a house. there was a fire fight that went on late into the night. and at that point, a 3 suspects were killed in that confrontation. we had a situation where some of the suspects were able to break into the embassy of taiwan. and to barricade themselves in the embassy of taiwan, we had another situation where a crowd of haitians gathered, confronting some of the suspects are urging the police to burn them. and now we're also starting to get a more clear picture of the weapons that were used. the rifles and the machetes take a listen to some of what is being revealed when these assailants, the thugs, who killed the president. we've caught them. we've captured them there in the hands
2:15 pm
of the police, as you can see. now haitian officials say that there were 2 us citizens of haitian descent among those held a suspected killer as part of the killed team. now the us, the us state department will not confirm that these are indeed us citizens. one of the individuals was apparently detained at the canadian embassy in haiti, and on his personal website describes himself as a certified diplomat diplomatic agent. in addition to that, there are apparently retired military, the colombian assassins are foreigner members of the columbia military. take a listen to our nation indicates that they are colombian citizens retired members of the national army. we have given instructions from the national government to our police and the army to immediately cooperate in this investigation so that these events can be clarified. now president mo,
2:16 pm
ease was killed on wednesday when the team of 28 got into his home. we also have a situation where his wife, you know, she was seriously wounded, an air lifted to florida. now it's important to note at this point, that we're hearing a descriptions of the crime scene that are rather gruesome. the president apparently had 12 bullets shot into him after which his eyes were gouged out, was rather a brutal, violent killing. those some suspect the original intent of the assassin squad was not to kill the president payday but simply to arrest and detain him. so we have, you know, in the lead up to this we had a situation where basically you had calls for. busy moiz to step down, there were protests going on throughout the country and now that the president is gone, there is a power vacuum. the parliament is pretty much defunct. we have 2 individuals claiming to be the president's rightful successor. the military is on the streets,
2:17 pm
having declared at martial law, and there is already growing on rest. in many fear that the unrest in haiti may even further escalate. at this point with a power vacuum created by the death, the killing, the rather brutal killing. i should say of the praise haitian president. i live in new york on see kill him often. thank you. now according to report, so the 2 americans claim they were working as translators for the hit squad. and filter reported that the operation had been planned for at least a month, and that its aim was not to kill the president, but to bring him to the national palace a short time ago in the program. i spoke with daniel shore, a professor of latin american and caribbean studies at the city university of new york, who says the assassination was a classic palace coup. the links between the drug enforcement agency, the different intelligence services in columbia, in the us, in haiti, definitely coordination. nothing happens in haiti economically, politically,
2:18 pm
diplomatically, militarily paramilitary without the u. s. is being involved. this could be the justification for the next us away. if you win the try factor of evil, imperialism for the next invasion and occupation of haiti, where the entire economy is us sweatshops and us agribusiness. so this whole month about haiti being poor and having no geo political and economic strategic importance for the united states is ridiculous. so right now, it looks like a palace different wings of a haitian booth was the both of which would be in touch with different parts of the state department or the pentagon or the c, c i a, or the d e a, or the proxy forces from taiwan and what we're seeing columbia, they would be buying for this power. they would have their own rights which open up . and there's a lot of egos in narcissism involved. but at the end of the day, this is a lot of pal is entry with what matters are the interest of the haitian people. and
2:19 pm
as they said to me as i was still in transit to new york city, leaving cap haitian, the 2nd biggest city and haiti, we were hungry when we woke up on tuesday. the president in the dictated was killed . we had the same hunger when we woke up on wednesday, and your program returns and just about ah ah, special episode of summer solutions today we're talking with john robina of dollars collapse dot com. they write 2021 has been the year of the i word inflation. even the central bank is mentioning inflation. is that transitory? however, as the central bank is arguing, or are we going to see something worse coming forward in the next year or 2?
2:20 pm
the people with diabetes to number raises, whether it's not adequately managed or that they have some immune problem. then their risk of infections and something like the coven 19 pandemic, was very bad news. the people diabetes. and we consider it as one of the very high risk situations in terms of people being infected ah, the ah, are 20 past the out here in moscow. trouble is blowing in over frances plans to build off shore wind farms with turbines as high as the length of 3 football pitches. belgium is launched,
2:21 pm
legal action against the move off. the locals outlined their objections. pirates, nevertheless, as the wind and sales, the president of the commission for energy regulation, even suggested opponents should have their energy cut off, investigating and traveling to the area for more author, charlotte to ski. it may look column, but a storm is brewing and it's a huge one front 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 2 e u countries affect to go head to head in court as belgium threatens to sue a complaint will be launched with the european commission because our country has not been consulted about the location of the area,
2:22 pm
while european directives require it independently owned the french belgium border that is palpable since it is very close to the borders about 10 kilometers. it will be very visible from our beaches. this landscapes and the feeling we have of liberty and seeing the seeing the horizon is actually our main products. that is why people come to our shores. that is why people buy property with an ocean view is because as he does horizon, they don't come to the fantasy windmills for francis a very important project. i understand that, but that doesn't mean that you have to put all the burdens with the neighbors and take all the advantages as a nation. 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,
2:23 pm
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 is 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 that this project also does not respect history from, says president, mat, call and a has set himself up. is this defender all of the environment. now he won't france 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 no idea. and the pressure is also mounting off. the high council for climate in france says that the country is going to miss it's greenhouse gas emission targets that failure would be embarrassing. but reason phone like the one that's planned for here are not popular with every one. if i go,
2:24 pm
we launched a petition. and despite that, when the minister came to don cack 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 for 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,
2:25 pm
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 has also just adopted a measure that could allow local meds to v to such plans. meaning that francis idea to be greener than green could soon have the wind knocked out of them. charlotte deven sky for all see on the french belgian border. well, it used to be upheld as literatures most searing indictment of racism. but now to kill a mockingbird has been taken off the syllabus at one school in scotland simply for being 2 racist r t is poly boys. looks at how the council culture is killing off all the classics . is only the most inspirational book of all time. a present surprise when it was
2:26 pm
originally van for its wound depiction of racism and sexual violence. but now one school in scotland has a bond to kill him walking by harper lee for another reason. the anti racism classic is now deemed braces to because it plays into a white savior. narrative. the name of when i say band, i mean more like cancel the teachers than jane gillespie hurtful in algebra, i stopped teaching it to students as part of an effort to the colonize the curriculum and stein backs of mice and men and being cut to for it. racial stereotypes and frequent use of the and was sure to it's not, not there, but when i tell ok, i get the whole white savior thing in to kill a mocking bad. i really do. in fact, it's a great topic for discussion in say, an english class, and i get that just one percent of students that study english
2:27 pm
literature at g c. s. c. that's the exam that kids take at the age of 16 in the u. k. study a book by a person of color and just 7 percent of students in gfc study, a book written by a woman that is abysmal. and by the way, that research is going to be provided to us by penguin books, u. k. who could take a leaf out of their marketing and disclose how many of that is on, on white for females. for that matter? look, i'm not saying that stay a reading list. couldn't use a refresh load. you know, white kid make up about 30 percent of students in the u. k. and they ought to see themselves and their experience is reflected in the canon. but why does the colonizing the curriculum mean killing off to kill a mocking bad fresh research by frank lungs? has found that overhaul, when people under the cars stopped talking to someone that's actually stopped a relationship with someone because they disagreed with their political views. sure
2:28 pm
. no, thank you. so i guess i'm sweet enough. throwing out a classic because it doesn't conform to modern standards. feel somehow connected to children in this court with more common sense and new and the decision to remove all police family novel from the reading list, albeit from just one school so far is making people angry. i think it's very wrong for a few people to hold everyone as hostage in the important about the book is that they portrayed the unwritten truth of the time. we have this white liberal christ david turns out to be re said to me, right? this is the 2nd american story. the canon of literature is fluid that all myriads of that, that was classics that didn't age well and then retired into obscurity, but huge to kill a mockingbird to be one of them. let's discuss that in the classroom. i, thanks for joining us here on our team. to national for this, our pride
