4:02 am
the tenor bands offer to hand over the summer. been loudon was rejected by the bush administration that led to 2 decades of war. countless lives lost and at the end of it all the militants back in charge. morton cast here porch now from couple on what was really achieved the afghan war. and it's just shy of it's it's 20th anniversary, the. the war, a vengeance that was launched by the united states, as revenge for 911, and quickly morphed into something else. one of the most protracted conflicts in modern history, an exercise in a nation building before losing all lame and tylenol towards the end. neither the united states nor any of its allies still knew what it is that they hoped to achieve. here. the end result that is, is that it was unanimously considered an abject failure. but taliban is, is back in control and more absolutely than it was before the united states invaded
4:03 am
afghanistan. and the question that we're hearing now in the halls of congress, in parliament, in europe, and the press of either on television internationally is, is who do we blame? we need to consider some uncomfortable truth that we did not fully comprehend, but the up of corruption and poor leadership and her senior ranks. that we did not grass a damaging effect of frequent and unexplained rotations by president ghani of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp why there was only so much for which and for home. many of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year multi administration drawdown. not a 19 month or 19 day neo, these scandal is nowhere near over the americans calling it been ghazi on steroids,
4:04 am
the republicans as well as ordinary americans that she, the end of the war is humiliating for america. they want someone held responsible, the biden, the miss administration, as well as the pentagon. so far they have done their best to absolve themselves of all accountability for what many americans again see as the catastrophe. they argue that the fault is with many american administrations that, that preceded them. and that is ignoring the tremendous financial cost of the war. some that could have made the lives of americans and many of their allies at the taxpayers so much better and so much easier. ah, ah ah ah
4:05 am
ah ah ah, we are the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and yet we have the highest child poverty rates of almost any country on earth. from the perspective of a civilian, there is scott evidence here on the ground in afghanistan of any of that money other making its way here. aside from half finished clinics, him and broken roots, testament to record breaking levels of corruption that, that so brilliant siphoned off into the bank accounts of corrupt officials into the pockets of private contractors. though the evidence of these billions being here is
4:06 am
in the hands of the taliban, the guns that they wield, stamped with made in america, the vehicles military vehicles left behind, industrial quantities, the taliban, or of course jubilant. they have dismantled everything that the united states built here, the human rights, the tolerance, the democratic institutions, and the matter of weeks. and they are jubilant. they have after 20 years of, and so wretched and rebellion, believe they want. ah ah by virtually any measure, this war was a failure. in some respects,
4:07 am
it even made things worse. from a humanitarian perspective or a 3rd of afghans near an offer on the verge of starvation, with no hope inside the drugs manufactured and export to that of, of gustavo, kill countless youth. worldwide. from a geopolitical perspective, the taliban considered an international pariah. since its inception is now having to be negotiated with it, i counted with even a, the un bob from a security perspective. yes, al card, the eve of gather thought may have been degraded but, but something worse has taken its place. and that is isis which has bound to the challenge to afghanistan. dominance by the taliban. were aghast if they're reporting from cooper. i also, this week in afghanistan, scores of people were killed in an explosion at a sheer mosque in the countries northern city of conduce the blast happened during
4:08 am
friday. prayers and over a 100 people are reported to have been injured. and i says k suicide bomber was behind the attack. it is the sanitary script, 2nd assault and a mosque in a matter of days. and they do have a long history of targeting, she muslims in afghanistan, when a local journalists visited the site of the blast and sent us this report. oh, the explosion was so powerful. according to some officials, the new taliban government had warned a tax like this one were possible. earlier taliban security personnel visited this place and they gave the opinion that it might be a suicide blast. after examining some evidence, we've seen such a blast in the past hitting mosques and killing worshippers. systemic faith, we're targeting, she an era. there were targeting, she are in syria. they were targeting, she are everywhere in the middle east. so that i wouldn't be surprised that this, this is the, as i said, you know, this is actually the work of them expired because they're considered she are, oh,
4:09 am
there it is there another good believer over there. so this is, this is the execute. but i mean, the major aim is who these fabulous afghanistan to actually be stabilized by taliban rule and of them is that so this is mrs. the beginning and i wouldn't be surprised actually more of the big li at that slide miss will take place. and there are few weeks a month sir, ahead we while senior representatives from the u. s. and the taliban have met this weekend in kat hours, capital of doha. these are the 1st such talks to since the us pull out from afghanistan. now, officials from both sides do say that the ongoing negotiations assented on the evacuation of foreign citizens and afghans from the country and counter extremism. but the taliban have rejected joint operations with the us to suppress isis k in afghanistan. and while the u. s. is may declare to that the talks don't signal the
4:10 am
recognition of the taliban, and she wore act of his prime back. he says that they do, the afghanistan government is insisting is that the united states not have the right or not to believe that it has the right to continually intervene into the air space. or territory of afghanistan talks between the taliban, lead government in afghanistan. and the united states and other talks with the e. u a, constitutes a kind of defacto recognition that the taliban in fact are the government, the both the european countries and the united states have to make a choice. if they refuse to recognize the taliban government officially, if they continue to hold the seized assets of the afghan government, making it impossible for their government to meet basic needs of the people in afghanistan. i think it's very likely that the afghan government will seek to find new partners the united states does not legally have the right to take control
4:11 am
of or sees the assets of afghanistan simply because the u. s. occupied the country for 20 years, not pointing gas prices in europe have been reduced to more of a similar half to fanny mae peyton said this week that russia is ready to stabilize the market addressing the continents. and he crisis on wednesday. the president and a to that more sky would continue in its commitment to ukraine in regards to cash trends. it, as she touched his chest, prom believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay a fine to ukraine and increase the gas volume pumping through the new systems. but there's no need for that. there's more pressure in the pipe, less c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere. everything turns out cheaper. and at $3000000000.00 a year, it is necessary to fully comply with the contractual obligations for the transit of
4:12 am
gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but there is no need to buy anyone in a difficult position including ukraine despite the difficulties in relations. second, there's no need to undermine gas prompts confidence is an absolute reliable partner in all respects. and present payton there earlier blamed europe's gas crisis alone . overly hasty transition to green energy coupled with brussels decision to switch from long term gas contract to volatile spot. trading at the gas price has been steadily increasing since spring, but shot up in the past. couple of weeks putting a huge financial strain on many european households. ah
4:13 am
ah, well, despite the pledge to help reduce prices in europe, moscow is still being accused of manipulating the market. congressman michael mccaul called for sanctions against ethanol string to gas pipeline. we spoke with maximilian cra and emmy pay for the alternative for germany party. and also with karen i. so she's a former foreign minister of austria and they gave us their perspective on how politics is clashing with energy security. about 7 years ago that could have been more supply to do your market wire pipeline. that was never billed them. the south during our stream was prevented from being constructed in the summer 2014. and so now it seems as if all the ice,
4:14 am
all the criticism available is simply directed against the most stream. and it simply doesn't make sense of a real match is taken in terms of making gas as much as well as the contracts allow when we speak of energy weapon, a lot of people, even though those who have been born here, then 73 will all the think of all what, for instance, opec era countries use the in the 9th and seventies. we had several instances non supply and non exploit of oil. this is what we can cause. i'm so like an, an, a to weapon. if you want to use that matter. but in the current context of the many context, long term delivery castillo contracts that exist between the russian federation and various you countries. and beyond that,
4:15 am
it simply doesn't make sense to use it. if you western europe and russia become into a partnership over economic change over energy supply than europe gets new, opportunity is ended, you world europe is not any longer, completely dependent to united states. so d, america, europe, america, are playing politics to preserve their global leadership rule. that's the only superpower. and they don't care about consumer prices and energy security in europe, they care on their part. and since the whole of is pro american politicians here a whole industry of turns, this is very powerful. so what we have there is no rational reason there is no, there is no rational reason because of rushing behavior because of economic interest. but the reason behind this angie rushing rave is g in politics made by the deep state of washington
4:16 am
d. c. so come here on the weekly billions of face. the keys is unable to use the site for hours with technical problems being blamed. the anchorage will have more what caused the black cat this week to start with 20 years ago to taliban were different. today, are you using the principal can, has their own interest. but years ago, there was some sort of kind of dialogue with the others to see what they can do today. they are so kind of restrict your limits. if you check your chicken one cabinet, one existing question and from inside question, do just completely concentrate on what's called a join
4:17 am
me every 1st day on the alex simon. sure. and i'll be speaking to guess on the world politics sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. ah, so welcome back to the weekly now the austrian chancellor sebastian kurtz, has resigned. it follows mounting fall out over corruption allegations made both against the politician and also his inner circle. the claims against him include breach of trust, bribery and making false statements to a parliamentary committee. mister kirk so denies any wrong doing, saying that the accusations are solely based on an old text message published in our free media. recently his decision to resign came after raids on his parties,
4:18 am
office, the chancery, and also the finance ministry is part of the probe into the case as the leader of the conservative block. though he still holds parliamentary immunity from prosecution. although he insists his decision to step down is to bring political stability to the country. may landis new obesity go. my country is more important to me than myself. what is needed now is stable conditions. i would therefore like to make room in order to resolve the stalemate. i've already discussed these developments for dr. hines, gardener, professor thor political science at the university of vienna. he says that given the circumstances, the austrian chancellor had little option, but to step down it was inactive because he came up under pressure of his party to resign. and the coalition partner to green parties that they would not all together was in the same coalition versus chance not it chance let because he's
4:19 am
not qualified a for his job because of all. busy it is allegation center, accusations, so either the coalition would but fall apart and then the people's party would not be in power at all anymore or he steps down and get people spotty remains. he bought. busy a shot bear products on the shiny bear k as in you a chance law. and of course sir john sla, former chancellor of austin quits really still bullied to strengthen that back. answer he be to remain the strong man and alexander showing sean fergus are very loyal to sebastian courts. so it might well be a sebastian course hoped he'd be clear to orders. busy expectations, especially the came in or a check your patience and think it might well be that he comes out. i
4:20 am
somehow clean and i'm again in the are in d v. a for the electrons in my facebook has been in the headlines this week with the tech giant experiencing to serious act, which is the 1st black out happened on monday when uses the platform along with whatsapp and instagram. we're unable to get access to that pages for 7 hours straight. the 2nd disruption came on friday evening. hannah tech continued for a couple of hours. both sets have been caused by technical iris. well, in an official statement, facebook engineer said that the problem was g to a connection failure between the tech companies, data centers, the act, each had a knock on effect t on individuals and businesses all over the world. the platform itself was hit hard and last up to $60000000.00, journalist and commentator though chadwick moore does question have such a vast company can be saved vulnerable to technical fight. facebook. oh is
4:21 am
a one trillion dollar company and i like these outages happen a lot. it happened in april in june of just this year. you don't see google outages or any other big tech companies. apple happening quite so frequently. so it's a bit bizarre that facebook has a problem with this. it seems to be that all of their, these properties oculus, instagram, whatsapp, and facebook all run through some sort of similar server. facebook is now sort of saying they were making upgrades and, and, and program or gotten locked out or something. sounds fishy sound really strange. the fact that this and facebook always a privacy problems and they always have problems there and they always go offline. they blink on one. so it's, it's very suspicious and is also suspicious that facebook seems that they are problems and most tech companies with these issues and, and i with whistleblowers as well. acknowledge, in fact, this has a look at the dangers of these monopolies. if they can blink out of existence so quickly, hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue was lost in 6 hours today till these
4:22 am
companies have it so much control, so much power. they are monopolies and look at how they can just wipe out revenue. whether the shut that was intentional or it was just the mistake when he goes down off, took us through a world without facebook and whatsapp was quite an experience. and in fact, it was one of the longest outages that facebook has experienced in its history. so yet it was long and there were long, tense hours because nobody seemed to know what caused the outage. how long it will last and world will what we should all do with it. when facebook service went down, they took along with themselves the so the infrastructure inside the, the, the facebook headquarters or wherever their services are located. so engineers, when they tried to get in, they found out that their electronic cards, their passes simply did not work. so they had to literally forced their way into the server room to manually rebuild them. so,
4:23 am
and it took mark zuckerberg also hours to come forward and explain what was going on. facebook, instagram, whatsapp and messenger are coming back online now. sorry for the disruption today. i know how much you rely on our services to stay connected with the people you care about. you might think that it was just facebook, instagram and you know, facebook sr companies essentially, but no, a lot of other companies, a lot of other businesses that do not necessarily rely on facebook as a social platform, but rely rather on their technical physical infrastructure like service they all went down to, from well tended to netflix to zoom, to literally websites of airline companies and world bank apps as well. so a lot of a lot of sites, a lot of services that were used to using they, well they went offline. but one app seem to take advantage of it and mainly to take advantage of what's that not working? and that's the telegram messenger. the s a ma'am, their social media team even had their fun on twitter before twitter went down as
4:24 am
well. and well, they tried to attract new users and did well they successfully did. so because it is estimated some 50000000 new users join telegram and it almost went down as well, but not because of the facebook thing, but because you had pro says so many new accounts being registered. so yeah, and there were a few funny reactions on line to this whole mayhem unfolding. have a look. we're working to get things back to normal. telegram, you're single, come over, the servers are up and my parents aren't home. so yeah, being a little tongue in cheek, the s m m team there, but probably well capitalizing on the whole situation. but in general, this whole thing, an underlying, especially the fact that other businesses not, not well upon can link to which didn't appear to billing to facebook, that they experienced troubles. it really points out how much people on the general, massive massive companies rely on the infrastructure of one particular tech giant.
4:25 am
millions of businesses rely on facebook now and many other ah, many others use, say, spoke in order to, to connect to other apps. it sends a huge warning across the bile because here we have a major social network site. but you know, this shows us the extent to which we rely on digital technology across the board. and cyber attacks of sorts can bring down whole systems. and facebook is just one. it's a social networking platform, but a lot of businesses as we've said, relying on it. but imagine a much more intrinsic infrastructural, so attack, i'm not saying this was a a cyber attack. in fact, i have a theory about what happened. but ah, this shows you the fragility of the entire digital infrastructure that we're relying on while facebook doesn't assist. since i teach dad didn't lead to any use the day to being compromised. it is just another set back though. weeks after
4:26 am
a form, a product manager there declined the social network knowingly allow cheese is to spread hate and misinformation. oh, gas gave you said he's on where facebook the brand cover can stands after recent events. what's interesting about the lease documents that the wall street journal published is that they show quite clearly that facebook is in decline and knows it's in the car. and so you see all these desperate measures of attempting to attract pre teens and children, i mean even children. so there is a kind of convergence of several bad instances. i mean, not just to shut down, but to any trust effort to break it up, coupled with now with these lead documents show is and understanding by facebook officials, that crest of the wave is now headed downwards. that facebook is not infallible. and what's up is definitely not infallible. what's that also came under scrutiny because there were reports that even though they claim that they use their messages,
4:27 am
were encrypted. that they were actually sending some user data to authorities in order to help with different types of prosecution. so if there's a message to take away from this, i think it is absolutely that we should be very skeptical the claims that facebook, what's that you, all the subsidiaries are making about their ability to keep your, your data private. because clearly it seems like they can't, at least for the moment i keep their sites even online. okay, well let's just give you an update then. and i'll breaking news to say because 15 people, including the pilots and co pilot and i confirmed to be dead after light aircraft crashed in the republic of tartar stan in central russia. as 7 survivors have been pulled from the wreckage, one of them in a critical condition. the plane had 20 members of a local parish club on board. he came down near the city of mens zalinski, which is around a 1000 kilometers east of moscow. or
4:28 am
what brings you up to date, so you'd be much in the weekly here. we're not international. just coming up to half 11 in the russian capital will have morphy at the top of the when i see black merger wasn't part of my so i was growing like a marriage. a spoke to me with what australia did not go through. so black life matter is a movement we are importing from america. know nothing of who we are. i lived in a world where wide lives mattered. and i was not wide like ms. newman and i wasn't new from black america. i learned how to speak back to white aboriginal people of iraq more every day. we were out modern system. now with the
4:29 am
police were out with she states, i'm scared that more children are gonna grow up in a country that think says no racism, but they're more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. then there are other fellow friends in daycare. so got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally and going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk with
4:30 am
the way of life of reindeer herders leading a traditionally nomadic lifestyle in the tundra is similar to a parallel reality which sharply contrasts with the usual realities of megacity. while the men drive the herds, women carry the weight of the household work on their shoulders, but no one would ever put housewife on their cd. it's not considered a profession or an occupation that you'd get a salary or a pension. however, in the vast expanse of russia, there is a spot where a housewife could secure regular employment status. it's in the far north, but there's just one tricky bit unlike any other housewife, such a woman would have to live in a cham attend covered with randy a heights that moves location several times a week for.
