1:02 pm
him after 20 long years and no victory? anyone would struggle to on? why? so the $47000.00 civilians could be killed so that only half the population can live in poverty. so the country could lie and ruins faced with this ugly reality. is it any wonder the bite and decided it was find me time to come home? i will much send another generation america to warn i can stand with no reasonable expectation of achieving the different outcome. oh, there was no mission accomplished. i mean, there was a conflict in that we get to scott some in widen and terrorism is not emanating from that part a little. we achieved those objectives. well, not quite. i'll carnita might be gone, but the taliban is ascendant. advancing so quickly that a now came to control 85 percent of off chemist on and with the country view,
1:03 pm
s and nato allies having jumped ship. it's people have been left to fend for themselves or calling them again. everyone is 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. well, i mean, i'm very clear the yes had 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. some have already fled to neighboring pudgy cust on and iran, but that might not be an option for long. the ton upon control to thoughts of the border with tajikistan and recently captured the crossing to iran, meaning of the on many escape proof left. an especially dangerous prospect for those who worked with foreign armies, fearing for their lives there,
1:04 pm
now cooling on washington to get them out. the monday gave us a recommendation. they not only my life, my family, and i also looked up with really when we don't have any show we have now we want to take any decisions or united nation or what you call yourself humanitarians. but what kind of humanitarian saw you left me here after i worked 10 years for you. russia is also worried that the fighting will spill over into its territory. so it's arched restraint promised to g, cuz tom back up on the board and maintains dialogue with the taliban. and the country that created this whole mess just up didn't left. oh,
1:05 pm
i the i up to the left in the dead of night without what apparently the washington claims that local officials knew that withdrawal was imminent. the very next day newton was seen plundering a background base, funny american souvenirs left behind. with this hasty exit parallel to being drawn with another open us, as for, for was vietnam wage a war on terror realized that the tree is impossible in could deal with the enemy of found in your allies and get the hell out of that. well,
1:06 pm
let's just hope the carpool doesn't fall as quickly as south vietnam did. to buy didn't at least has faith. is a tale bond takeover of afghanistan now inevitable? no. it is known. is that what the goal was? 20 years ago? that devastation, no plan for long lasting peace. i hope that the government wouldn't crumble as soon as the u. s. left. how many more countries will be put through this vicious cycle before the us finally launch? it's lesson. united states is a far very global empire. we are absolutely totally addicted to war. our economy cannot survive unless we are either actively engaged in war or preparing for war. and so there is obvious parallels between afghanistan and vietnam. when i was in vietnam, i was only met in the mom. so i was seeing the rapid disintegration of american
1:07 pm
involvement in vietnam. so i was seeing the homicides the suicides, the ramp, and heroin addiction shit out among the american soldiers within our own. you obviously, at that point at 97071, we were questioning, why were we ever in vietnam? you know, because a lot it was thought that we were there to preserve peace and democracy and defense, the united states government. but that was all a lie, everything was a lie and the same thing is true for the war in afghanistan. you're going to see a lot of rack and ask, stand better is probably committing suicide. there are a lot of that are going to drink and drugs themselves and death because they're going to ask themselves, what's the point of me ever being in rack or hundreds of undocumented migrants or on hunger strike in brussels and a bit depressed the authorities to ground them aside,
1:08 pm
them from even sewing their mouth shut to show they have no say on wednesday government officials met with protesters, so we understand no agreement was actually reached. but the union representing the migrant says some progress was made. officials now say fighting economic exploitation is one of the top priorities. they say that there are a 150000 living here illegally. and the $200.00 people that decide to stop eating should be regularized individually. what would be the result? a week later, you get 202020000 people who would do exactly the same around a 1000000 microns and the e. u in 2015 and what blame for terror attacks and a sharp rise in friday. some migrants who have been in belgium for more than a decade, say their asylum appeals still haven't been processed. all these shot into buskey reports from bras, indigo long term migrants across russell's taking action into their own hands and resorting in some extent to extreme measures. to demand their rights seem assigned
1:09 pm
attempts in sewing up their own lips. just to the shocking moves the migrants have taken to show just how serious they are. while we've been have 3 people have needed urgent care. some for men and women taking part in this protest have been in the country for more than a decade. and they say that they have simply had enough of government inaction. there's also criticism that brussels and even europe as a whole, have been so hesitant and imposing any kind of rooms for their situation, leaving them no choice. i have started this and i have to continue to the end of last 15 kilos. but i am ready to lose another 15 or 20 just to be legalized. some other people rest their lives even more. my body carry me recently swallowed a razor blade. he had to get an emergency operation for other people. so the lips
1:10 pm
always actions are one, go to show that we really need the documents. i am the nipple guy, but my child is not nibbling. they don't understand polly kennedy speaking the police and they speak only the does the things. so my child is, is property of belgium. give me will for me to deny i can walk and i can give you food, my child. the belgian government says it won't change policy. it's frustrating. we are trying to help people as much as possible to get their dos is to be treated as fast as possible. but of course not every undocumented person, not every person who is here can stay in belgium. the hunger strike is not going to help issue of undocumented migrant isn't just confined here in belgium, in front of also being processed stage to call attention to the thousands who also in a similar situation the
1:11 pm
in the i the but is a regular a shouldn't a real solution in some other countries, of course the e, u, spain, portugal and italy, that's the route it's been pursued. however, that too has caused problems. italy is trying to grant access to around 600000 undocumented migrants. but the process has been fruit with allegations that permits a being issued arbitrarily with collective regular possession 9. that is only meant new trucks of illegal immigrants doesn't work before the politic election. is there all responsibility of the government or citizens of this country? if our government gives it opens up more actions like this for
1:12 pm
a new way. will the immigrants coming to our country? since you are the picture, let's together to make your situation more her oral than it already is. wrongest ortiz all refusing to budge those supporting the protesters say that off the 6 weeks, the situation is now very desperate. the undocumented people who have been in hunger strike, especially though stay in one of our campuses, have reached you pin point where they can irreversibly put the health a great risk. where you grab that public us or just remain deaf to their quest. which will continue to support, stay faithful to our humanist commitments and our sense of justice. yet, despite all of the focus on migration, at an any level, there's still no coherent strategy, which many think will only make the problem worse. the problem is, is huge. it is without any doubt, the biggest problem facing belgium and the european union right now. every single
1:13 pm
domain is under enormous pressure because of mass migration. i'm talking about public safety policing and migratory services, but also about things like education, housing, and the judicial system. if we decide to ignore the rules because people go on hunger strikes that we're setting a horrible example. that migration law in belgium is not strict at all. so if your application to get red residence papers is rejected, that means you, you really don't deserve them. and you have to go hope the problem is that the belgian government isn't doing enough to make sure that these illegal migrants who have their application regret your objectives effectively go hope. in many countries, they are, they are put on a plane back to their country of origin. but in belgium, they just receive a paper that says they have to return home. a former police officer may be new
1:14 pm
york's next mail. after winning the democratic nomination. he was picked despite a year of black lives matter of protests where states, while the state of aims included that of the funding. the police. now in the city crime is soaring with the new york state governor andrew cuomo, declaring a gun islands disaster emergency. and the new may oral candidate is eric adams. he served in the police force for 22 years and is currently the brooklyn barbara president. the forefront of his platform is a commitment to combating gun crime. now he does support police reform, but it's firmly 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 in some ways. they
1:15 pm
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, to find the police movement has been a large failure. demonizing and attacking cops has been 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 country. chicago's man has asked the president for help after the city stores bloodiest weekend over independence day were more than a 100 people were shot police when i was call him again instead of the public or demanding on says and action. however, the leaders simply put enough listening. the bias 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,
1:16 pm
but people know what they see. they know they here. and you can 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. the weekly program returns and just about the summer solutions where we focus on the solutions. not so much. the problem stay right. we are joined by jeff booth author of the price of tomorrow. the the
1:17 pm
the, the the the the the the, the, the ah, they're going to be to join us for the weekly a 6 months off the u. s. last, it's bid to have whistleblower julian assange extradited. a u. k. court has granted
1:18 pm
washington the right to appeal. the judge is reported to have agreed with 3 of the 5 justifications. the u. s. submitted thing, while the biden administration is apparently now prepared to let us orange of any prison sentence in his australian homeland. his partner claims he already has the right. i sell of orest this week also gave her reaction to the granting of the appeal from outside the court. i was able to speak to julian about the decision and you know, it's mixed because on the one hand it's been 6 months and we haven't had any news. so it's like an endless purgatory. but at the same time it doesn't here. and julian's very unwell, he's happy when, when he i went with our eldest this morning. and so it's not representative when i see him. because obviously it's a, it's a one rest fight he get off. but even, you know, belmont prison is
1:19 pm
a horrible place. he won his case in january. why is even in prison? why is he even being prosecuted? there is no legal case against him. all. there is an indictment based on life by washington. once it's on her face challenges of hacking and espionage which could get him in well convicted for a 175 years. in january, a british judge ruled against his tradition over mental health issues. in 2019, he was forcibly removed by police of the ecuador and embassy in london after quito terminated his 7 year asylum, where he leeks editor in chief christian hampson says the sheer length of the entire process is shameful. well, it's a great disappointment for julius johnson for all of this is continuing. one would hope that the united kingdom courts would to recognize how ridiculous this case is and not to grant the appeal. this means that this will drag on for
1:20 pm
some time for a prisoner to have to wait in a prison cell for 6 months for half a year, just to get a decision of whether the appeal is allowed to to his opponents or not is rages. this decision comes on the week of the it is revealed that the indictment against union does not have a leg to stand on. the key which says retracted to testimony and says basically the testament which was cited by the business judge numerous times as truthful allegation doesn't hold true. it is a fabrication and the americans now know if they're still continuing on this truck . this appeal is an attempt to pro long the inevitable. inevitable is the freedom of julian. if he does not get his freedom, it is such
1:21 pm
a load to our society and what we believe in that it is almost amount to turning off the light. so this must come to an end, and i can fence in my bones that it will be coming soon. meanwhile, australian m. p. 's having come by ja moment and grouping together, urging president biden to drop the u. s. government extradition appeal, the straining citizens want. julian, his honor to be free, his treatment violates the convention against torture, and his persecution threatens journalists worldwide. the pfizer and my dad and the covert vaccines can potentially cause heart inflammation. and people that is the conclusion of the european medicines agency
1:22 pm
which has recommended adding the condition to the list of possible side effects. it's the 2nd time to find the job has made headlines this week. that's after the israeli health ministry reported that its efficacy had dropped by almost a 3rd earlier studies had given it an efficacy rate of 94 percent for the latest data show. the figure had followed by roughly a 3rd. however, the report claims it still provides good protection from various illnesses. as of now, the pfizer by a tech job has been approved for full or emotions to use and more than $100.00 countries, i should say worldwide, including many, many regions. it also received emergency validation from the w h i. with the end of last year, we discussed the new findings with the head of the vaccination program at the tel aviv medical center. we have data which shows even if the immunity of doses of defy their job, even if the immunity is waning, it's winging very, very, very slowly. it is possible at some point, everybody will need another dose. obviously we're worried about the drop. the delta
1:23 pm
vary and has already been studied in britain and elsewhere in the fighting. 15 has been found to be less effective against it, but not as less effective as seen in our preliminary data. we will have to watch it closely as, as the data unfold. the full 5, the vaccination requires 2 shots, like most coverage on a growing vaccine hesitancy. trend has seen people refusing to get a 2nd dose in the german capital. for example, nearly one in 6 appointments have been canceled or postponed in reason of weeks stuff reporting to the german red cross, which has suggested a 30 hero fine for those. failing to show up the head of the organization, but in branch says vaccine absenteeism is increasing. in our experience every day, 5 to 10 percent of those who have appointments do not attend in the arena bell in area alone, around 3000 people vaccinated every day. while the rest of the centers around
1:24 pm
$15000.00 vaccinations take place every day of those 3 files and every day, $150.00 total people do not attend. that is quite a lot if you consider the amount of effort that goes into this 1st, this is not fair to those who would like to make an appointment for the vaccination . we cannot do this due to the lack of free time slows. and secondly, a complete waste of all resources vaccine pharmacists, and doctors. therefore, i'm calling for those who do not attend their appointments about counseling them to be given a fine absenteeism. i unchecked in the u. k. could be having to change their ways. the country plans to ban boiling lobsters alive as possibly things to activists from cross station compassion, who say the animal's feel pain. there is more than enough evidence about the ability of this senses if captivating, creatures to feel pain and suffer. the undergo paul in treatment in the food industry. the government also intends to recognize crabs. octopus is an squid as
1:25 pm
capable of pain as part of the animal welfare bill, which initially only applies to vertebrates. a few countries have already banned. boiling lobsters alive, including switzerland, norway, and new zealand. alternatives include stunning, the lobster 1st, either with electricity or ice or killing it mechanically. well, some scientists though, argue that the will cross station nervous system, it's incapable of pain claiming that their bodies respond merely reflexively to that of stimuli. a critics of the bill also argued that it will be detrimental to fishermen who didn't come depends on their love to catch when i had the chance to put the issue up for debate with a panel of guests showing compassion to more species that does that. a good thing, isn't it? a lot of concerns have been raised about this bill that there are going to be many unintended consequences in terms of what we mean for fishermen, for full food production for the final cost to the consumer. and i think there's
1:26 pm
also a question of why it is being done. now. we have a global and domestic pandemic that we are still struggling to get through. there is going to be a huge economic pool out from it. kate over to you, forgive me for being devil's advocate, but what's next? cockroaches, when would you go on what this land titles us and right now it tells us that animals with a nervous system can feel pain and stuff. you know, we think that this is a really big step forward for the most. it's not just that but a sentence. and by recognizing that you know, this and craft and other stuff from dr. puds concealed pain, the government is, is going to then protect them further with other animal welfare legislation, which will mean that they can no longer be killed in an inhumane way. transported handled in an inhumane way. seaford becomes incredibly dangerous because of coming into bonds. then what happens is it becomes impossible to effect so they get their
1:27 pm
outcome. i actually would much rather sit and be honest about those. i'd say me out to be about bombing bait fighting, fish and bonding all forms of slaughter for the purposes of something that you know, this isn't about binding the thing. animals obviously piece of would like to live in a world where people are killing and consuming animals, but this isn't going to make it illegal to eat lots different crabs makes them a lot more expensive for the, for the average consumer. and so predictions are the sorts of wealth measures will increase the, the final cost, the products by about 20 percent. it's not for the government to tell us what we should or shouldn't be having. this is the 21st century. the people should be in charge. yes. the puppet needs to be in for it, but they also need to know that these animals and their 70 and i most people, when they find this information, i will align the morals with the actions. i'm okay.
1:28 pm
if it is purely a public information campaign, then we don't need these measures to band practice in the press the fishing industry. and we don't need based these measures on products. if it's just about the return label science, we can lay the science before the public and leave the public to decide. just about wraps up this edition of the weekly here on asi international that we got a whole nother program for your coming away in about half an hour's time as we highlight the top stories off today and of the week. oh, the the people with diabetes are number raises, whether it's not adequately managed or that they have some immune problem, then their risk of infections and something like the kind of the 19 pandemic was very bad news. the people diabetes. and we consider it as one of the
1:29 pm
very high risk situations in terms of people being infected ah, the rather driven by drainage shaped by those with the in me thing we dare to ask me. ah, you know, you don't do it. you know it when you spin them but didn't want, you know, you did,
1:30 pm
you know, i don't, i don't, i don't go down there for the food that i've all use in the body in there. i guess it's like, i mean that i think we're pretty on the find the article from he just took a look of the middle who need to get through with those who knew that belong to plenty. possibly individuals going to separate your.
