5:02 am
toppling the taliban regime and on the way can see west and pull out. many questions are still being asked not least why the tanner bands offer to hand over sama, bin laden, 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 were a cast here for post. 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 tiring 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,
5:03 am
is back in control and more absolutely than it was before the united states invaded afghanistan. and the question that we're hearing now in the halls of congress, in parliament, in europe, and the press and he's there on television, internationally is he is who though we lay, we need to consider some uncomfortable truth that we did not fully comprehend, but depth of corruption and poor leadership and nursing arrange that we do not grass a damaging effect of frequent and unexplained rotations by president ghani of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp what there was only so much for which and for home men of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year bolt, i, administration drawdown. not a 19 month or 19 day neo. these scandal is nowhere near over the
5:04 am
americans a cooling, it's been ghazi on steroids, the republicans as well as ordinary americans that she, the end of the war is humiliating for america. they want someone held responsible the bible and 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. 7 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,
5:05 am
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 in 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
5:06 am
pockets of private contractors. though the evidence of these billions being here is 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 are of course jubilant. they have dismantled everything that the united states built here with human rights, the tolerance, the democratic institutions, and the matter of weeks. and they are jubilant. they have off to 20 years of, and selection and rebellion, believe they won. mm .
5:07 am
i virtually any measure this war was a failure and some respects it even made things worse, from a humanitarian perspective, or a 3rd of afghans near enough on the verge of starvation, with no hope inside the drugs manufactured and export to that of, of gustavo, kill countless youth world wide. 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 qaeda eve of ghana stud may have been degraded but, but something worse has taken its place. that is isis which has bound to the challenge to afghanistan. dominance by the taliban. were a gas, if they're in kabul now, also this week in afghanistan, schools of people were killed in an explosion at a sheer mosque in the country's northern city of conduce the blast happened during
5:08 am
friday. prayers and over a 100 people raina are reported to have been injured. and i says k suicide bomber was behind the attack in his the seni terrorist group. second assault and a mosque in a matter of days. and they do have a long history of targeting shameless limbs. in afghanistan, a local journalist visited the site of the blast and sent us this report. an explosion was so powerful, according to some officials, the new taliban government had warned attacks 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 chia and the era where we're targeting, she are in syria. they were targeting t r everywhere in the middle east. so that i wouldn't be surprised that this, this is, as i said, you know,
5:09 am
this is actually the work of them expired because they're concerned that she are out there, etc. is there another good believer over there? so this is, this is the executors. but i mean, the major aim is to these that belies afghanistan to actually these, to believe that taliban rule in afghanistan. so this is mrs. the beginning and i wouldn't be surprised actually more of the bitterly at that slide miss will take place and are few weeks a month sir. ahead. while senior representatives from the u. s. and the taliban have met this weekend, and kat asked capital at doha. these are the 1st such talk since the u. s. pull act from afghanistan. officials from both sides thing say that the ongoing negotiations are centered on the evacuation of foreign citizens and afghans from the country and also to counter extremism. but the taliban have rejected joint operations with the us to suppress isis k in afghanistan. and while the u. s. has made it clear that
5:10 am
the talks don't signal the recognition of the taliban. anti war activist prime becker 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. r, 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
5:11 am
new partners the united states does not legally have the right to take control of or sees the assets of afghanistan simply because the u. s. occupied the country for 20 years. not boiling gas prices in europe have been reduced to more of a sim, a half to flat imitating this week, said that russia is ready to stabilize the market addressing the continence energy crisis. on wednesday, the president added to that moscow would continuing its commitment to ukraine in regards to gas transit. as she does, she guessed from 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
5:12 am
gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but there is no need about any one in a difficult position, including ukraine despite the difficulties in relations. second, there's no need to undermine gas prompts confidence as an absolute reliable partner in all respects. present peyton there earlier blamed here it's gas crisis on an over overly hasty transition to green energy coupled with brussels decision to switch from long term gas contracts to volatile spot trading. the gas price had been steadily increasing since spring, but shot up in the last couple of weeks putting a huge financial strain on many european households. ah
5:13 am
ah well, despite the pledge to help reduce the price is in europe, moscow is still being a key to manipulating the market. and congressman michael mccaul, even called again for sanctions against the north stream to gas pipeline. we spoke with maximilian cra, anatomy, paid for alternative germany party in also carry nice still a former foreign minister of austria. and they gave us that perspective. some high 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. you ouster in south stream was prevented from being constructed in the summer
5:14 am
2014. and so now it seems as if all the ice, all the criticism available is simply directed against the most stream. and it simply doesn't make sense of a real match take in, 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, opechi arab countries use the in the 9th and seventies. we had several instances non supply and non export of all this. what we can call it in like an, an a to weapon if you want to use that matter. but in the current context of the many contract, long term delivery, 0 contracts that exist between the russian federation and various you countries.
5:15 am
and beyond that, it simply doesn't make sense to use it. if you western europe and russia, we come into a partnership over economic change over energy supply, then europe gets new, opportunity is ended, you worlds or europe is love any longer, completely dependent to united states. so be america, europe, america, playing politics, to preserve their global leadership. as the only superpower and they don't care about consumer prices and energy security in europe, they care on their palmer. and since we have all others pro american politicians here, whole industry of this is very powerful. so what we have there is no rational reason there is no, there is no rational reason because the russian behavior or because of economic interest. but the reason behind this angie, rushing rave is, gee, and politics made by the state of washington dc. you actually still had fi this
5:16 am
afternoon to face, but uses unable to use the site for alice with a technical problem that's being blind to the active this week. we'll have a look at the courses to stuff a what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on offensive, very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk with
5:17 am
ah ah, welcome back to the weekly now the austrian chancellor sebastian kurtz, has resigned. it follows mounting fall act over corruption allegations made against both the politician and also his inner circle. the claims against him include
5:18 am
breach of trust. bribery are making false statements to a parliamentary committee. mister kurtz though denies any wrong doing, saying that the accusations of sony basin and i will text message published in austria media recently. his decision to resign came after rates on his parties, office, the chancellors, and also the finance ministry is part of the pro been to the case as the leader of the conservative block. he still holds parliamentary minisey from prosecution. he insists, though his decision to step down is to bring political stability to the country. men lundy snobbish to 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 suit that we discussed the yet developments say with dr. hines, gartner hayes professor for political science at the university of vienna. and he says that given the circumstances, the austrian chancellor had little option. but stepped back it us any better is
5:19 am
because he came up under pressure of his party to resign. and their coalition partner to green parties that they would not to hold together is in the same coalition versus chance not chancellor, because he's not qualified a for his job because of all it is allegations and accusations. so either the coalition would but fall apart. and then to people's party would not be in power at all anymore. or he steps down to people's party remains impala. lisa. it shawn patrick santos. i'm parish. i send you a chance law. and of course, so chancellor, former chancellor aroused incurred street still a bullard to strengthen that back on. so he beat remained the strong man and alexander showing shine faggots are very loyal to us to boston or kurtz. busy so and it might well be
5:20 am
a sebastian courts hopes that he really cleared took all. busy his expectations, especially the, came in at eci accusations and can't. it might well be that he comes out somehow clean and thrown again in. there are $23.00 or 4 on the elections. again, my facebook has been in the headlines again this week with the tech shines experiencing to serious averages. the 1st black hat happened on monday when use is off the platform, along with whatsapp, and also instagram t were unable to get access to their pages for 7 straight hours. the 2nd disruption happened on friday evening, and that continued for a couple of hours. both the sets have been caused by technical errors, but in an official statement. facebook's engineer said that the problem was she to connection failure between the tight companies data senses. the active had a knock on effect to on individuals and businesses all over the world. the platform
5:21 am
itself was hard to and last up to $60000000.00 journalist and commentator though chant whitmore has questioned time. such a vast company can be so vulnerable to a technical fire. facebook. oh is 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 of the 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 sounds really strange. the fact that this and facebook always a privacy problems and they always have problems there and they always go offline, it went down to one. so it's, it's very suspicious. and it's also suspicious that facebook seems that they are problems and most tech companies with these issues and,
5:22 am
and i would whistleblowers as well acknowledge impact. 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 companies have it so much control, so much power. they are monopolies and look at how they could just wipe out revenue . whether the shut that was intentional or it was just the mistake because some of tickets through wells with that 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 well, we'll, 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 engine is when
5:23 am
they tried to get in, they found out that they have electronic cards. their passes simply did not work, so they had to literally forced their way into the server room to manually reboot them. so, and it took mark zuckerberg also hours to come forward and explain what was going on. facebook, instagram, whatsapp, a messenger 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 says to 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 seemed to take advantage of it and mainly to
5:24 am
take advantage of what's that not work. and that's the telegram messenger. they estimate their social media team even had their fun on twitter before twitter went down as well. and well, they try to attract new users. and well, they successfully did so because it is estimated some 50000000 new users joined 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 may have 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 by probably, well, capitalizing on the whole situation. but in general, this whole thing and underlines, especially the fact that other businesses not,
5:25 am
not well. a banking linked which didn't appear to billing to facebook. that they experienced troubles, it really points out how much people and in general, massive massive companies rely on the infrastructure of one particular tech giant. millions of businesses rely on facebook now and many other, 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 off site. but you know, this shows us the extent to which we rely on digital technology across the board. and a cyber attacks of sorts can bring down all 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 attack. i'm not saying this was a, a cyber attack. in fact, i have a theory about what happened. but ah,
5:26 am
this shows you the fragility of the entire digital infrastructure that we're relying on will facebook doesn't says that the suicide teach dad didn't lead to any use a day to being compromised, but it is just another set back on the last weeks after a former product manager claimed that the social network knowingly allies uses to spread hate and misinformation, i guess, gave a steady so my facebook, the brand currently stands after recent events. what's interesting about the leak documents of the wall street journal published is that they show quite clearly that facebook is in decline and knows it's in decline. 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 what these lead documents show is and understanding by facebook
5:27 am
officials, that crest of the wave is now headed downwards. that facebook is not infallible. and what's app is definitely not infallible. what's that also came under scrutiny because there were reports that even though they claim that they use your messages, 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 of the claims that facebook whatsapp, your, 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. ok, well before we go, let's give you an update on our breaking news because 16 people including the pilot and co pilots and i confirmed dead after light aircraft crashed in the republic of tar to stand in central russia. 6 people have been injured and are in a critical condition to play in a less al, for 10 had 20 members of a parachute club on board. twin engine transport aircraft came dancing off to take
5:28 am
off. maybe to see if mens illinois which is around a 1000 kilometers of moscow or to say, had been in service since 1987 and belonged to the yes that brings upstate the emotional weekly we'll have more than about 30 ah ah ah ah ah ah ah a
5:29 am
ah, when i see black america, i see part of my so i was growing like america spoke to me. why destroyed it? did not have to say black lives 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 was like missing. and i wasn't known from black america. i learned how to speak back to white. aboriginal people, here are your every day. we're out. now with the police were out with she's the i'm scared that more children are going to grow up in the country that think
5:30 am
says no racism, but they're more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. then there are other fellow friends in daycare when $140.00 for around 4 year olds, finding a done accidentally shooting and to them a gun violence is a uniquely american problem. good fire isn't uncommon around with the local skate. great. 19 year old man, shot gun violence takes the life of a young african american man. every 5000 is driven. and because of where he spent the of the young life taken while handling to loaded guide, his brother accidentally shot him. we were playing with a gun with me and is recovering after being shot in they called go dad ever show it.
