uniform. yet this option turned out to be preferable to having the baby learn 1st steps under the taliban. i've done, women took the groups, promises to treat them fairly with a huge pinch of salt too. but to take them is a tool order even for american nationals who were beaten and rude to the couple. airports. contrary to jo biden's claims, we have no indication that they haven't been able to get in trouble through the airport. we've made an agreement with the, with the tale bond thus far, they've allowed them to go through and they're interested in a go through. so we know of no circumstance where american citizens are carrying an american passport for trying to get through to the airport. we are aware that some people, including americans have been harassed and even beaten by the taliban. this is unacceptable and we made it clear to their designated teller bun leader. but joe biden is far from the only person taking the flack when i'm going to stand collapse
3:05 pm
to us. vice president camera harris went abruptly silent that despite previously heralding herself as one of the motives before the pull out to date, this is her only comment on the evacuation chaos. we are closely monitoring the situation in afghanistan. oh, priorities to continue evacuating us citizens, special immigrant, thesis applicants, and vulnerable of guns out of the country. the german authorities are scorched for evacuating beer before local staffers who risk their lives working for the military . and after that, relatives of a do, each of villa correspondents have been killed by the hardliners as they are right now trying to find the reporter himself, chancellor angle americo had to openly admit that the african nation billing experiment was a mistake. i list, fussy, didn't succeed, aren't accomplished as we had planned. the realization on the mit is terrifying for
3:06 pm
the millions of afghans who supported the more free society and who with the support of when they've gone through for democracy and women's rights and made important progress. prisons, foreign secretary is edge to step down. as the media alleged, he did not help. african interpreters for the u. k. army escaped the country before the taliban takeover and possible revenge attacks. and all of this is happened with smaller scandal, like the possibility that the evacuation might not be free for americans. and amid all of this, it appears the u. s. leadership still does not have a single clue how to contain the full out of this disastrous withdrawal. i cannot promise with the final outcome will be we don't have the capability go out and collect up large numbers of people. the us was caught unawares and i think once again, they have failed to analyze what the situation was. it really puts on full display,
3:07 pm
the delusions of the us, which after all has been in afghanistan for almost 20 years. consuming, according to some estimates, 2 trillion dollars. this money has not gone to the benefit of the afghan people, obviously. and this whole enterprise has been very bad for the american people as well. many us soldiers have died. the good thing about exposing the delusions of the us empire and the neo conservative to run u. s. foreign policy is that it's going to make them harder to continue, so there needs to be a lot more criticism and expose sure of what the reality is versus what are the promises and the, the false estimates by us intelligence, operational. so as we've heard that many people have not been able to get
3:08 pm
a flight out of couple, we spoke with a german national, he's currently stuck in the country with his afghan fiance. and i just got so i'm a german citizen. throughout the day i stay in constant contact with the german foreign ministry and the german ambassador to couple. i received an email saying that one can enter germany, only one is a family member of a german. my fiance is such a person, but she's not being recognized in the official status, and she's a citizen of afghanistan. we hope to leave the country as soon as possible on one of the evacuation charter flights. of course we're very worried about what's going on. we haven't gone out since the day before yesterday since the taliban set up checkpoints all around the city. were also worried that they could find out that i'm a foreigner or that in the future our situation make it worse. if they find out that my fiance is engaged or married abroad once we arrive safely in germany, will of course have no more reason to fear for our lives. we live in a free and democratic country. that's where i want to return to. that's where i belong. i'm calling on the government and the german foreign ministry to let us
3:09 pm
finish all the paperwork in germany. we have the originals of all of our documents in our hands. let us finally leave this caliphate. give me my fiance permission to enter germany. now, while confusions as rain at the airport in the city of couple itself daily life is all but ground to a halt. a local journalist took us on a tow also several days that they call, we'll see the capital off a gun at some fall into the fall of one. it seems that the sales, the city is quite sharp, that we are seeing you here. they're all clues. the bonds, the restaurant, the supermarket, get all crews. and if you see this region here, it's a complete yet. why is it 3? if you compare it with us before we do a month before or before the telephone capture, the city, it was a very rock city. it was the use areas, in fact, the very russian area of call. but now it's very, it's looking very why we will our majority of the stomach,
3:10 pm
a monarch press kind of fraud. i told the people and call them that they are protected by the ton of on w. w number is also said that i'm thinking about leadership. i have all the fighters that don't have permission to enter for any houses or to any to search. i know how it is built they, they are not allowed to enter the house. has our inquiry on the government. people know i'm here in the check point of a ton of money and public. i'm booked with the commander of the check. fine. that's how they can show the security people and what they are saying. what people call up my name is above the rock mancha child and the major hit in the baseline. the camera movement. it has been 18 or 20 years that we've been in the mountains. now we've captured capital city. i hope you are not set and we have not great the problem for the capital people. now i see the shops and markets are closed. what's the message to the shopkeepers and owners of the market? look as i do want a good will given them freedom, they should common,
3:11 pm
opened their shops. there is no problem for them. the fight in finished and again a stack. fighting has finished and have gone this done. there is no g had anymore before this has gone to her. now we should come together and save our country. this is one of the cobble national airport get. lots of people just got here to get charles to get inside of the airport. quite a few of the security forces that they don't get permission, anyone to get inside of the airport. now i'm going to interview with one of the guys who is waiting for long time. it is good, but did he couldn't find the chance to get inside of the airport? so how long have you been behind this gate? it's been around 3 days. there were people that stormed the airport with a certificate for an english course. people went with electricity bills, but those of us with the real documents couldn't get inside. i have my special immigrant visa which has been accepted and approved but i still can't get inside
3:12 pm
the mall. the taliban takeover has revived. major concerns about the inflow of migrants into europe with the u. officials openly fearing repeats of the 2015 crisis when more than a 1000000 flooded into the block of leaders today repeated his firm opposition to taking asylum seekers despite a cheaper slip on the line just the day before stating its europe smallwood gt; to help afghans is to the absolute est clearly opposed to us now voluntarily taking in more people and that will not happen during my child from the ship. i'm not of the opinion that we should take in more people quite the opposite. that's legal. i think it is very important that we all for legal ways to those who have to flee afghan is down because of their conviction. we must now offer them safe ways to leave the country and be accepted. this week, hungary said it won't make it. citizens pay for what it called florida american decisions. greece's migration minister insisted to the country when again become
3:13 pm
europe's refugee gateway. and the french president, menu macros called on the members to coordinate to response against irregular migrates re flows even germany, the state that took most migrants in the 2015 mass in flux. wounds that i've got stands neighbors must take asylum seekers and that the whole block actually agrees with that policy. however neighboring to mean the stand under pakistan have taken practically no african refugees. just 14 and 13 migrants respectively. offrey, as former foreign minister told me, only a controlled migration policy can actually work. certain countries have announced that they will, if i made, freighted like that i think, and 2 groups of political refugees friends announce they would like to take our to john or the some other say they would like to take medical socks that are in area. and so they would like to pick and choose. now this is what actually
3:14 pm
and even my and ego asylum seeking mechanism should be involved. but i don't see it happen in this case. i mean, where were people righteous? where can people book the sites and get the family ready for moving? we simply cannot, with you said the whole african backup only to this migration issue it's, it's a much, much wider when it comes to security question when it comes to political responsibility . and as many think it means over tax it's, it's the complete lot of trustworthiness, of credibility, of what all these call well in terms of human rights, respect, attentional. and i think the destruction of an image is which will fall
3:15 pm
on our hat in the even much more noisy away and into currents. my question christ is, we have seen a tremendous decree of in come to terms. and i'm not surprised by the type degree of being competent and knowing a little bit of some of the organizations from the inside. some of the people who are now in the high of criticism it's it's, it's an absence of sense of realism. it's an absence of being able to think in the category of your politics, of human nature and of history. and all that i would say, i've got this done is an emblematic symbols of, of what is still to come in terms of tremendous crisis of
3:16 pm
whatever the west has claimed to stand for. now the russian president, vladimir putin, has dismissed the plan by western states to put afghan refugees in central asia, according to the proposal they would have the u. s. e visa's process say before traveling to the final destination. it must be our goal to keep the majority of the people in the region. europe shouldn't wait until people stand at our external borders. for vladimir putin was speaking up specifically there against several proposals that were given by european leaders to confine afghan refugees to the region until they purportedly received visas from the u. s. or some other western country. but of course, nobody knows exactly how long that's going to take, or if they're even going to receive visas at all. it's important to remember that throughout the the ladder years of the afghanistan war and now a lot of people in afghanistan who collaborated with nato forces the us led
3:17 pm
coalition. they were promised visas and never received one and now they're fearing reprisals from the taliban. so let's hear what the russian president had to say about the situation. but even with western partners frequently raised the question of accommodating african refugees in central asian countries before they get to us visa or some other one. so you can send people without a visit to these countries to our neighbors, but they don't want to take them with the visas to their own countries. is quite a humiliating approach to the issue. now putting statements come amid the preparations for tomorrow's collective security treaty organization meeting that's, that's an organization in which 3 of its members states are cars. exxon could courtesan and said you can stand. these are all countries that are located in the central asian region where afghanistan is also located. and this especially series for to stand because it shares a common border with afghan, a stand. but one of the bigger problems really is that who's to say that all of the refugees that come into the region are actually going to be refugees,
3:18 pm
are not militants themselves. i mean, this is a serious problem that the russian president has said, has a direct relationship to russia. national security when you had teams to but we don't, once militants disguise those refugees appearing in our country to her as we are witnessing now enough kindness, then these horrors were on our territory not so long ago. no one wants a repeat of that. that's why we don't one those elements coming from them. now of course those horrors on the territory of the russian federation and in central asia that was referencing there, of course, had to do with the terrorist attacks that the region and russia have have had, had a problem with throughout the early 2, thousands and even after 2010, and nobody really wants to see of course, a repeat of these terrorist activities on quarter reporting that when the face of the welding is missed offensive, afghans have rallied across the country to show resistance to the taliban regime in compose, cried march through the streets denouncing the countries take you,
3:19 pm
but they chanted anti taliban slogans and carried afghans flags that have become a symbol of defiance. this unverified video does purport to show taliban fighters seizing afghan flags from a man in the street and then slapping him in the face. women also took part in the protests. his fear that they are among the most threatened in today's taliban control, which i've got to stand since to tell you. kelly st. adverts and bull showing female faces have been painted over, be to sell on beauty salons, have closed their doors, fearing reprisals and local say that women have practically disappeared from the streets altogether than any a very small number. daring to come out or that spite the taliban is promising to respect women's rights seems though that africans don't have much confidence. in those words. we don't want to go back 20 years. they used force against us and broke our smart phones. and they told us that you cannot raise your
3:20 pm
flag. they told us, go and sit at home. your women be ashamed of the one who fools to protest against him to show the world that the taliban government does not have any value. not just for us, it has no legitimacy in the world. i colleague horace, see show you talked to the man of couple about the situation on the grand. they are in touch with me. they called me and they informed me that they should continue my job for seems to some that the taliban is perhaps putting on a bit of a p. r stunt at the moment the taliban saying that they want women to have the opportunity perhaps to even get a job. busy it says women can perhaps even get an education a we have educated women, we have women who can provide services. we have woman can, can be part of the economy. therefore, it's only logical for itala by government our, for any government to make sure that we take advantage of that the issue of women
3:21 pm
has to be dealt with and the context of human rights. and islam, of course, within that context, there are freedoms. we cannot deny that from the women of upon this one. do you think the lack of resistance, even the lack of blood spilled, suggests that actually strong support for the taliban within the country. there was a little bit of both for support for paula bon resentment of how things were managed. the satisfaction among racket, rank, and file in the military executed forces to not to fight because they didn't want to fight or something unknown. the. everything was defined around individuals rather than systems. therefore, the motivation to fight for a person or persons was not enough for the people to fight. therefore there was no bloodshed thing got. do you think mister mayor, the people of cobble are going to accept taliban rule?
3:22 pm
both sides have to come to grips with reality and naturally follow, but will also have to come to grips with reality that up on the sun is not the same up on a song 20 years ago. so there is a given take that has to take place longer with the destruction in afghanistan is reached america to with valleys pouring onto the streets that protest against the taliban. seizing power. after the u. s. coalitions rapid troll, a protest broke on both and west coast from allay to washington dc with demonstrations chanting pre afghanistan and biden, the traders. they also demanded that the white house helps struggling afghan population. people are being persecuted, women and children do not do not have a future enough dentist and under the terrorist, the taliban, it's a terrorist organization. there are the same ones that have that we've dealt with in the past. the u. s. never says that we'd never deal with tara. why?
3:23 pm
why are we sitting down on the same table and making agreements with me at home? there was not gonna be a job that i was going to come to you guys because there are the enemy are going to me woman, you know, be on the market the they just need a hot pretty late was no mention gonna come knocking your door. the translators are left their left bleeding. taliban are going around killing every single one of them. we're not doing anything about it. the united states government that promised every single one of these workers that wanted to come get you out there or not there. those people are dying one by one. meanwhile, the tunnel band has
3:24 pm
a huge johnson of high tech weapons with billions of dollars originally gifted by the pentagon to the afghan army, the u. s. national security advisor. hans had questions on all the items that were left behind. those black hawks were given to the tall one. they were given to the african national security forces to be able to defend themselves. we don't have a complete picture, obviously of where every article of defense materials has gone by. certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the taliban. and obviously, we don't have a sense that they are going to readily handed over to us at the airport. well, footage from the week does show taliban fighters parading around comple with american made rifles and military vehicle acquisitions. washington, still trying to estimate just time much weaponry. antec has fallen into the hands of the insurgents and by the insult to injury to the taliban is also created a faith to oppertunity, one of its special command unit, steck directing us gear. recreate isn't iconic. world war 2 photo of troops raising
3:25 pm
the american flag. speaking twice he's getting on the grounds. comedian, political commentator jimmy door gave us his thoughts and his country's handling at the crisis. you want a u. s. intervention a military intervention. tell me about which country you want the u. s. intervening . and i think it's about, i mean, because a lot of people are saying we need to stay in afghanistan to help the women. i say, how about in the united states takes about 3 or 4000 troops and invade los angeles and brings health care and medical aid, and shelter to the 60000 homes, people in los angeles. how about we invade the inner cities of america? and we bring health care to those people. we bring shelter to those people. we bring medicine to those people. we bring counseling to those people. how about we invade america? and we start trying to help america. when is, when is america going to care about the women? and, you know, one out of 5 kids in america lives in poverty. so if you want to help people,
3:26 pm
why don't you give women and children? plenty of women living wage in the united states give them health care and give them an education. ironically, that's what the government up gavin ended up until we invented the taliban if you took. so there's 600000, according to statistics, or 600000 homeless people in america. lot of those are women. lot of those are children. now, if you gave them each a $1000.00 stipend, a month, a $1000.00 a month, to go get housing. that would cost $7200000000.00 a year. 7.2000000000. you know, we've been spending 2 trillion dollars or the last 20 years, 300000000 dollars a day, to kill people and get it then. so the united states ever really cared about women, they could spend a $7200000000.00 to do or take care of the homeless people in the united states. give them a 1000 that they won't do it. so yet joe biden, nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, mitch mcconnell,
3:27 pm
all the leaders and both parties. they know that they're, that one out of 5 children lives in poverty in the united states, along with their mothers. and they don't care the now another news tonight, 17 people including 2 total is a confirmed dead. more than 40 people are missing off the severe flash floods in the u. s. state of tennessee. 300 and cause heavy rain cause i t mobile phone service is 2 in the state. national guard has been deployed to help stranded resident riah police if i say gas water cannon and rubber fully protesters demanding for the resignation of thailand. prime minister over his handling of the pandemic, fun demonstrates, was left in the coma for the bullets lodged in his head during the clashes as rise is held fireworks and projectiles. protests gathered at the national police headquarters as well as blocking major most ways through the capital bank. coke. volunteers are planting 10000 c to seedlings in the bid to restore siberian forests
