3:05 pm
anything most we worked foreign compounds. we delivered food and i worked to foreign tenure starting in 2010 comes about 20 days ago, but we remained. what's our fate now? what all the family was out of the you call yourself humanitarian. but what kind of humanitarian saw you might be here after i was 10 years, we probably don't want to make british troops have also now wrapped up their mission in kindest, on, according to the prime minister, most of them have already left the country that the wisdom of that decision was questioned by one of his own. m. p. 's ex soldier. tom took not who store action in afghanistan. and he also related how he fought alongside another member of the house. this is an enormously personal issue for me. i didn't meet the honorable member for bonds, the central here or 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. he's just lifted and the achievements that
3:06 pm
he has listed were won with the blood of my friends. i can point him to the grave where they now lay. because that legacy is now one that is in real doubt. we know it, and we know that is 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, 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 ra afo's officer who also got his don, who shed his thoughts on the withdrawal and out of the entire mission. on the one hand, ethically it's right for us can to determine is a future that will happen. it's just the future may well be particularly
3:07 pm
unstable. brucell takes us back to the medieval period of time without the democratic will or the democratic infrastructure being in place of which the security forces were established to create it. i think to be realistic, we need to wait and see what the future holds for this tom to have correctly said, we've had 20 years, 20 years with trillions of dollars trying to this campaign and to achieve what we've achieved in 20 years, which is unclear as a military guy, myself, i somewhat ashamed that welcome to change. so in less than 8 weeks, the us military operation comes to an end in afghanistan. and whichever way the future plays out, it will affect lives both inside and outside of the country. according to recent estimates, the exodus of african refugees is on the rise considerably. the number is closing
3:08 pm
in now. 13000000 putting a big strain on countries forced to cope with the newcomers. a germany, france, and romania top the list of a new countries taking in the most afghan migrants in austria, a 5th of all refugees and al, from us honest on. and the large numbers are also bringing a host of problems. some of them gruesome as really of her trunk on our reports. imagine you're in charge of a country. shocked by a creepy raid skin. the victim who died had just become a teenager. the suspected rapists are young and afghan 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 e u eyebrows. let's hear from the man who has lately been facing this precise
3:09 pm
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 deportations. i've done or a watering down of asylum law before i commit crime ticket. i think for me, what exactly did he mean by barberick? ah 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
3:10 pm
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 syrians. 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 ghana stan, 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 the solemn 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, in 2019,
3:11 pm
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 live back home would be in danger. all of this does seem to tie the hands of chancellor kurtz, 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 rules. at the level. the 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 ganeth stand, pull up the silent system as we have it in europe is just
3:12 pm
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 it a general problem that you've console with measures? at least the mini stick minister of interior missed and the how my as now as me to the asylum system up to europe and union is a disaster that austria and the government has done nothing to change that 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,
3:13 pm
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, austrian feminists have been having best stay on the issue that accused local media over race is reporting which they saved. villa 5 migrants, a group of active, it's steven storms. the opposite of a local newspaper confronting journal. if we can find a video of the story and a whole lot more besides at r t dot com, let's get to have you with us for the friday evening program. here. 17 people have been detained in connection with the murder of haitian president hoffman. l. moiz. among them 2 americans of haitian descent of police are also looking for 8 other suspects. in the case as alt. he's a kayla mohan reports now. the trickle of information is slowly getting underway. well, we have an ongoing situation where the police are trying to track down suspects.
3:14 pm
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 a number of people from columbia. many of whom were ex military folks from columbia out 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 the 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. are getting
3:15 pm
kind of a clearer picture of this squad. some of the weapons that were used, the rifles, michelle tase, the these assailants, the thugs, who killed the president. we've caught my eye, we've captured them there in the hands of the police, as you can see that now haitian officials say that there were 2 us citizens of haitian descent among those who held a suspected killers part of the killed team. now the u. s. the us state department will not confirm that these are in need us citizen, one of the individuals was apparently and is actually described as a certified diplomatic agent on his own website. the colombian assassins are former members of the columbia military and they put my initial information indicates that they are columbian citizens retired members of the national army. we have given instructions from the national government to our police and the army to immediately
3:16 pm
cooperate in this investigation that these events can be clarified. now, president mo 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. so 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. in the lead up to this, we had a situation where basically you had calls for moiz to step down. there were protests going on throughout the country and now that the president is gone, there is a power vacuum. parliament is pretty much defined to be up to individuals claiming to be the president's rightful successor. the military is on the streets, having declared at martial law, and there is already growing unrest and many fear that the unrest in haiti may even
3:17 pm
further escalate. at this point with a power vacuum created by the gas, the killing, the rather brutal killing, i should say, of the praise haitian president. according to report. so the 2 americans claim they were working as translators for the hit squad. it's also reported that the operation have been planned for at least a month, and that its aim was not necessarily to kill the president, but to bring him to the national palace. daniel shore, a professor of latin american studies. it says the assassination was a classic palace qu, 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, diplomatically, militarily, militarily, 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,
3:18 pm
imperialism for the next invasion and occupation of haiti, where the entire economy is us sweatshops and us agribusiness. so it's all about haiti being poor and haven't know geo political and economic, she's important for the united states is ridiculous. so right now we find a palace giving wings of the 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 this power. they would have their own rights job and, and there's a lot of egos in narcissism involved. but at the end of the day, this is a lot of pallas entry what, what matters are the interests of the haitian people. and as they said to me, if i was still in transit to new york city, leaving the cab patient is 2nd biggest city and haiti. we were hungry when we woke up on tuesday. the president in or the dictator was killed. we had the same hunger
3:19 pm
when we woke up on wednesday. and your program returns in one minute. the the planet i trip it there, we found 25 years ago, took only 4 days to go around the us, which means to finance is very close. so that was really the big surprise. and we have learned since then. all in system is maybe one amongst many. that's not the archetype that's not the stuff out the way to our planet. and i'm of the shots because everybody was expecting the planet to look all the same special episode, summer solutions today were talking with john beano of dollars. collab dot com
3:20 pm
state right. 2021 has been the year of the i word inflation. even the central bank is mentioning inflation is a transitory however, as the central bank is arguing. or are we going to see something worse coming forward in the next year or 2? the the the choose. ah, it is good to have you with us for the program this evening from moscow now. 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 for being 2 racist r t 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
3:21 pm
originally van for it 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 racist 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 hopeful in algebra. i've 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 b and was sure to it's not, not there. but when i tell ok, i get the whole white savior thing in to kill them off. bad i really do. in fact, it's a great topic for discussion in say an english class. then i also get that just one
3:22 pm
percent of students that study english 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 at gmc 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 female 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 34 percent of students in the u. k. and they want to see themselves and their experiences reflected in the canon. but why does the colonizing the curriculum mean killing off to kill a mockingbird? fresh research by frank lungs has found that overhauls of people under the co

classroom. trouble is blowing in over francis plans to build offshore wind farms with turbines as high as the length of the eiffel tower. belgium has launched legal action against the move off. the locals outlined their objections. paris nevertheless, as the wind in its sales, as the president of the commission for energy regulation, even suggested opponents should have their energy cut off. is authorized charlotte reuben's k. 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 countries affect to go head to head in court
3:25 pm
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, 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 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 older 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
3:26 pm
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 that little habitat which is supposed to be a safer space. it will just be she's living. and it's also a historic sizable ration. dynamo, meaning that the project aspect history, fancies president not call and has set himself up, is this defender 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, 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
3:27 pm
would be embarrassing. but we didn't foam like the one that's planned for here are not popular with every one. once if i got to petition and despite that, when the minister came to gun and we tried to meter, 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 local or any in tax on the territory. why is it not for the inhabitants to decide why is someone in paris making the decision? the 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
3:28 pm
. 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 local meds to veto such plans. meaning that francis idea to be greener than green could soon have the wind knocked out of them. charlotte diva ski for all c on the french belgian border. there were serial top stories for this hour here lie for moscow on our t into national. thank you for sharing your time with us. here we are back soon with me. the.
