[000:00:00;00] the headlines are not to use. the taliban celebrates sweeping gains across. i've gotten us on, including another border crossing that has the u. s. president confirms troops will be out of the country by the end of next year. you know, mission right. and responsibility that can people alone decide their future and how they want to run their country. meanwhile, the refugees continue to flee the country for a new life in europe, a brutal rape and murder of a 13 year old girl and austria, the hands of an african migrant once again. but the issue of immigration back in this was also to haitian americans, are among the suspects,
6:01 pm
detained in connection with the murder of the haitian president. on the one i welcome to the program. this is the international law for moscow. we do start this program without guidance done. it's where the taliban has been making further territorial gains. it's fighters, in fact, were filmed, celebrating bed latest line grab the, the jubilation is over the capture of the border crossing with iran. videos on social media, purportedly show the taliban militants taking down the scan flag from the local customs office. in the past week, the group was also taken crossings that lead into both tajikistan and was becca stones. meanwhile, us troopers, which have been in the country for 20 years,
6:02 pm
are packing their bags. joe biden has defended sending them home while leaving the country to face. well, he's called the strongest taliban in 2 decades. the u. s. president says there's simply nothing more for washington to do. now, mission accomplish permission was accomplished in that we get scott some and widen, and terrorism is not emanating from that part of the 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. here's what i've got on looks like right now in terms of who controls what taliban areas in red cover. roughly half of the country that the group itself claims to be in control of 85 percent areas in yellow are contested with a pockets of green showing whether government still holds from sway. with the u. s . president saying americans achieved its objectives in the country. there are some
6:03 pm
critics who decry the price that's been paid me. oh i a i the, the me the as the remaining us troops pack their bags, dozens of afghans who work for them, including interpreters,
6:04 pm
have rallied in cobble. and they want the americans to get them out of the country as they fear the taliban will try and kill them in revenge. i washington has promised to help what it looks like. red tape is getting in the way we make that the migration for you. it does the work with us military on the life of the regular one of the monday gave us a recommendation. saved not only my life, my family and i did all the working service which i was jumping on you providing that service for the all not done. and i'm going to be done with really when we don't have any issue we have now,
6:05 pm
we want to take any decisions or united initial yes, we're not everything most we worked at foreign compounds. we delivered food food and i worked with foreigners for 10 years starting in 2010. about 20 days ago. they left but we remain here. what's our fate now? what's the fate of our families? you call yourself humanitarians, but what kind of humanitarian saw you left me here after i worked 10 years for you . one former, i've got interpreter who asked to be called rafi for security reasons. told us about the persecution they face from the ton of since 2001. the narrative. was that taliban or terrorist for against dollar bond, whatever was from day one, from the dated did it existed. however, when the world came to the open stop and they said they're fighting the terrorism and i live on the terrorists. there was some,
6:06 pm
some of the people from the community side to the donation community and the war against terrorism, which resulted in capturing killing in thousands of these a terrorist. today. the americans before running away released some 6000 of these terrorists. they have already struck the deal that another $7000.00 of these terrorists will be released now who will be left behind to pay for the declines. the americans off committed the americans being enough to understand war wasn't a crime. then why would you run away like that and leave interpreters and those will worked alongside you interest. so if the americans running away like that will leave the interpreters behind facing the, the brutal justice system off the telephone. well, the british troops have also now wrapped up their mission and i've gotten this don,
6:07 pm
according to the u. k. prime minister, most of them have already left the country. and the wisdom of that decision, though, was questioned by one of his own. m. p. 's ex soldier tom took an hot, who so action in afghanistan, and who also related how he fought alongside another member of the house. this is an enormously personal issue for me. i didn't meet the hon 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 there in the desert. as we were fighting side by side against the enemy's. he's just listed, 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, 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,
6:08 pm
how does britain foreign policy work in a country like half gonna stand 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 royal air force officer who served in afghanistan. he shared his thoughts on the withdrawal and the in time mission overall. on the one hand, ethically it's right for us can to determine its own future. that will happen. it's just a 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. 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. there's tom to have correctly said, we've had 20 years,
6:09 pm
20 years with trillions of dollars thrown at this campaign. and to achieve what 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, the us military operation comes to an end and i've gotten just on whichever way the whole future plays out. it will effect lives both inside and outside the country. according to recent estimates, the exodus of african refugees is on the rise sharply. the number actually is closing in on 3000000, putting a big strain on countries forced to cope with the newcomers. germany, france, and romania top the list of a few countries taking in the most afghan microns in austria. a 5th of old refugees are now from afghanistan. the large numbers are also bringing a host of problems, some gruesome as really up a trunk and reports. imagine you're in charge of
6:10 pm
a country shocked by a creepy rape 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 you 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 saying the deacon 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 off. can he's done or a watering down of asylum laws for asylum seekers who permits crime? i think what exactly did he mean by barbaric
6:11 pm
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. 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
6:12 pm
can close its borders. it 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 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 deport 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 kurtz, who like you've heard, isn't favor of deputations 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 repatriation rules at the level. the e u. asylum system is not working, migrants who committed criminal offenses have to be reported immediately. while the
6:13 pm
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 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 yes. why? this is a general problem which you console with 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 and union is
6:14 pm
a disaster. austria and the government has done nothing to change that or to avoid it. because austria, through the green mediums 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 when 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. often feminists have been having to say on the issue, they've actually accused local media over racist reporting, which they say vilified migrants. a group of activists. steven storm, the offices of a local newspaper, confronting the journalist, can find video of that story and a whole lot more. besides right now, a few clicks away off. ah, so now on the program, the haitian government has asked the united states to send troops over to help
6:15 pm
protect some of the countries key infrastructure. it comes in the wake of the assassination of the haitian president, which has left the country in thomasville. let's learn more about this now across lives, off and joining us here on the program available. we know so far about this request from haiti for us military assistance while the biden administration is drawing down and ultimately withdrawing the us military presence from afghanistan. but we, from what we understand now, there is a call from haitian officials for the u. s. a. to send troops to the country. they're calling on the united states to send in the military, to protect gasoline reserves, ports and the airport in haiti. and at this point, it's the deterioration of the situation after the president was killed 2 days ago. it seems to be the justification they are giving for wanting to expand the us
6:16 pm
military presence in the country. now we did hear that the biden administration is planning to send the f, b i and some homeland security forces into the country. not confirmation yet about troops, but they want to basically help the investigation of the assassination of the haitian president. here's what we heard from the white house spokesperson. the united states remains engaged and enclosed consultations with our haitian and international partners to support the haitian people and the aftermath of the assassination of the president and response to the haitian governments request for security and investigative assistance. we will be sending senior s t i n t h officials to port a prince as soon as possible to assess the situation and how we may be able to assist. now details have been emerging about the gang of 28 assailants who ultimately took the life of the haitian president and severely injured his wife. at
6:17 pm
this point, there were 28 trained killers, 2 of them were haitian americans, the rest were from the columbia. and essentially, as the police have track these assassins, there was a fire fight that went on into early hours. the morning, late last night, 3 assailants were killed. there were a number of suspects to actually went into the taiwan embassy and went into the taiwan embassy. there were some others that were captured. there was a scene where the crowds of haitians were actually, you know, we had grabbed, i've grabbed 2 of the suspects and were called on the police to burn them. there were also, there was also a situation where the media was presented with rifles. michelle, a and other seized tools along with columbia and passports from some of the assailants. let's take a look at that. good. see these assailants, the thugs, who killed the president? we've caught them. we've captured them there in the hands of the police. as you can see now,
6:18 pm
2 of the assailants were haitian americans who are being reported to be us citizens . now the us state department will not yet confirm that one of the individuals was apparently detained at the canadian embassy in haiti. and on his personal website, he described himself as a, quote, certified diplomatic agent. in addition to that, it seems like all the colombians were former military personnel. they were former members of the columbia military who are now apparently operating and engaged in armed combat. beyond the colombian military, let's take a listen. 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 cooperate in
6:19 pm
this investigation. so that these events can be clarified. now the details about the scene of the assassination or rather gruesome. we've been told about the president with 27 bullets inside of him, as well as his eyes gouged out. rather gruesome images coming out. rather gruesome scene being depicted in the reports, the reason that the assassins targeted the haitian president is not yet known. now, there were widespread allegations of corruption. there were protests all across the country, demanding that he leave arguing that he was in office unconstitutionally. there's been widespread unrest and protest across haiti for the last several months, and it appears that that unrest is now escalating. haiti is rated as the probably the poorest country in the western hemisphere in the caribbean and south america. and it seems that the situation in the country is escalating, the countries under martial law, the parliament is pretty much defunct. there are 2 individuals who are claiming to
6:20 pm
be the rightful successor of the dead president. so at this moment, now haitian officials appear to be calling for us troops to come to the country. we shall see what moves the biden administration takes. all right out is caleb martin . thank you. now, according to reports to americans claim they were working as translators for the hit squad, those are reported that the operation had been planned for a month and that its aim was not to kill the president, but actually to bring him to the national palace on a warrant the u. s. says it will send f b i and homeland security officials to assist in the investigation following a request from haiti. earlier in the program, i spoke with daniel sure, professor of latin american studies. he says this was a classic palace qu, the links between the drug enforcement agency, the different television services in columbia, in the us, in haiti, definitely coordination. nothing happens in haiti economically, politically, diplomatically,
6:21 pm
militarily paramilitary without the u. s. is being involved. this could be the justification for the next us away as you, when 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 coup. different wings of the haitian bourgeois z, both of which would be in touch with different parts of the state department of the pentagon or the c, c i a, or the d. e. a. or these are the proxy forces from taiwan and what we're seeing columbia, they would be buying for this power. they would have their own gripes. we jovan them and there's a lot of egos in narcissism involved. but at the end of the day, this is a lot of palace intrigue. what would matters are the interests of the haitian
6:22 pm
people. and 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 or the dictator was killed. we had the same hunger when we woke up on wednesday. your program continues in one minute. ah, i ah, with me
6:23 pm
ah. ah, i use join me every thursday on the alex salmon 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 news. ah, it is good of you to join us. the trouble is blowing in over frances plans to build off shore wind farms with turbines as high as the eiffel tower. and belgium has
6:24 pm
lawrence legal action against the move off. the locals outlined their objections. paris nevertheless says the wind in its sales as the president of the commission for energy regulation, even suggested opponents should have the energy cut off. is correspondent charlotte dubin 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 countries set 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,
6:25 pm
while european directives require it independently, owned the french belgium border, 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 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 say you're not alone in this, we're about to cross the french border where there are protesting groups who have
6:26 pm
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 house 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. front sees president mat call and have set himself up as this defender over the environment. now he wants france to have 40 percent of its energy to come from renewable sources. so, when forms that's 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 its greenhouse gas emission targets. that failure would be embarrassing. but we didn't foam like the one that's planned for here are not popular with everyone.
6:27 pm
looks if i go, we launched the 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 decide? 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 belgian friends 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,
6:28 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 is also just adopted a measure that could allow local meds to v to such plans. meaning that frances idea to be greener than green could soon have the wind knocked out of them. charlotte diva ski for all, see on the french belgian border. a flare up of a covert strains around the world has the time to the community. rather concerned. studies suggest that to variance in particular, may even be more infectious and resilient vaccines than the current. well, predominant stripes. the lambda strain told to originated in peru has now been detected as far away as australia. although it was 1st discovered
6:29 pm
a year ago. the strain is starting to cause concern. lambda makes up the vast majority of all covered cases in peru and an increasing number of all infections in latin america. now, epsilon is the other covert varying that is causing alarm among that of the scientific community. it was 1st detected in california, and a recent study suggest it's even more infectious than others drains. researchers also found that epsilon is more resistant to both anti bodies produced by vaccines . and naturally, they believe that the effectiveness of current jobs could be in half by now. professor pablo to k. m a told us that covey and his mutations are something we're all just going to have to get along with. the virus keeps all being and it's really becoming more smith school. we don't know yet about it. it's about the city of though it is being driven down by the next team. so the most likely scenario was everyone vaccinated you started koby will keep transmitting in the
6:30 pm
human population in certain countries. and it will, it will not really go away. the ready cation at this point is almost impossible, because he has a transmitter in so many countries at such high rate. also, even if you might think it's best to, to reduce new katie humans to 0 koby. well, toby to has already jumped into other animal versus was, and was a virus junk outside humans. it's almost impossible to eliminate that's the program for now here on autism. national, thank you for sharing a time with us here at moscow. more of the stories returning and half an hour with my colleague, daniel ah, in the
