6:01 am
hello, they're welcome, the latest developments and the look back at the last 7 days you watch in the weekly here are naughty international. now this week we marked 20 years since the us and its allies invaded afghanistan, toppling the taliban regime. and i on the wake of the western pull out many questions, is still being asked. not least why the tailor bands offer to hand over sama, bin laden, was rejected by the bush administration that led to 2 decades of poor, countless lives lost. and at the end of it, all the militants back in charge more at cast their porch. now, from kabul and what was really a chick, 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 morph into something else. one of the most protracted conflicts in modern history,
6:02 am
an exercise in a nation building before losing all lame and ty like normal towards the end. either 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. the taliban is, 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, in the press and either on television internationally is he is who the we lay. we need to consider some uncomfortable truth that we did not fully comprehend the depth of corruption and poor leadership and her senior ranks. 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 why there was only so much for which
6:03 am
and for home. many of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year malt, i, administration, drawdown. not a 19 month or 19 day neo, these scandal is nowhere near over the americans calling it been ghazi on steroids . the republicans, as well as ordinary americans that see the end of the war as humiliating for america. they want southern held responsible, the biden, the mish 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
6:04 am
taxpayers so much better and so much easier. ah ah ah, ah ah. you're 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
6:05 am
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 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 after 20 years of, and selection and rebellion. believe they won.
6:06 am
ah, i virtually any measure this war was a failure in some respects, 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 killed 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, shall card the eve of gather stock may have been degraded but,
6:07 am
but something worse has taken its place in that is isis which has bound to the challenge to afghanistan, dominance by the taliban. mcgasey of there. and couple will also in afghanistan, this week, scores of people were killed, an explosion at a sheer mosque in the country's northern city. conduce or the blast happen during friday. prayers and over a 100 people are reported to have been injured. and isis k suicide bomber was behind the attack. it is c, c terrace groups. second assault on a mosque in a matter of days. and they have a long history ting of targeting shameless limbs. in afghanistan, a local journalist visited the site of the blast and sent us this report. childhood 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
6:08 am
a blast in the past, hitting mosques and killing worshippers. some faith were targeting chia and era. there were targeting chia 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, this is actually the work of them expired because they're concerned that she are out there, etc. is there another good believer over slam? so this is, this is the executor. but i mean, the major aim is, who does that belies afghanistan to actually these to believes that taliban rule and of denison. 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 a few weeks a month sir, ahead me while senior representatives from the us and the taliban have met this weekend in kat asked capital of doha. these are the 1st such,
6:09 am
talked to since the us pull out from afghanistan, officials from both sides said that the ongoing negotiations are centered on the evacuation of foreign citizens and afghans from the country and to counter to 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 the talks don't signal the recognition of the taliban anti war activist brian beckett says that they did. 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
6:10 am
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 of or sees the assets of afghanistan simply because the u. s. occupied the country for 20 years. and this news from this sunday man casualties are reported following a, a massive blast in the jamini port as port city of aidan, according to local media. they're a comp on targeted a convoy carrying the local governor and he survived the attack. yemen has been in a state of civil war since 2014 when he rebels asked the president the country
6:11 am
faces military intervention by a south side led coalition. earlier today, 16 people, including the pilot and co pilot, were confirmed dead following a plane crash in the republic of tartar stan in central russia. a 6 people have been injured and are in a critical condition. the plane a let l 410 had 20 members of a local parish club on board. the twin engine playing came down soon after take off near the city of mens zalinski which is around 1000 kilometers east of moscow. or it was believed that the incident may have been caused by engine failure at the aircraft, which belong to the club. had been in service since 1987. i boiling gas prices in europe have been reduced to more of a similar after a flatbed pace. and said that russia is ready to stabilize the market, addressing the countenance energy crisis. on wednesday, the president did add that moscow would continue in its commitment to ukraine in
6:12 am
regards to gas transit does from a shortage gas. 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 gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange. but there is no need to buy any one in a difficult position, including ukraine, despite the difficulties in relations. second, there is no need to undermine gas prompts confidence as an absolute reliable partner in all respects. present poison earlier blamed europe's gas crisis on an overly hasty transition to green energy coupled with brussels decision to switch from long term gas contracts to volatile spot. trading at the gas price had been
6:13 am
steadily increasing since spring, but really shot off over the last couple of weeks putting a huge financial strain on many european households. ah ah well, despite the pledge to help reduce the price is in europe, moscow is still being accused of manipulating the market. congressman, for example, michael mccaul called 1st sanctions again against the north stream to gas pipeline . we spoke to maximilian cra, her m e p for alternative, for germany,
6:14 am
parssi and also with karen i. so she's a former foreign minister of austria. they gave us our perspectives 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. use ouster in south stream prevented from being constructed in the summer 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 measure taken in terms of making gas as much as way level 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,
6:15 am
for instance, opec era countries tuesday, in the 9th and seventies. we had several instances non supply and non export of oil. this what we can call it in like an, an a to weapon. if you want to use that natasha. but in the current context of the many context, long term delivery castillo contracts that exist between the russian federation and various you conference. and beyond that, 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, then europe gets new, opportunity is ended, you world europe is not any longer, completely dependent to the united states. certainly, america, europe, america, are playing politics to preserve their global leadership as the only super power. and they don't care about consumer prices and energy security in europe. they care
6:16 am
on their part. and since the whole of is 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 the rushing behavior or because of economic interest. but the reason behind this angie rushing way is g in politics made by the deep study that you're watching the weekly here. and i still had fewer this out. billions of facebook uses, unable to use the site for hours with technical problems being blamed for the i teach, we'll have more on what caused this weeks. black hacked to start ah
6:17 am
hello, driven by tremendous shapes bank, concur, sent those with theirs sinks. we dare to ask for what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it creed, even foundation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful. very political time, time to sit down and talk with
6:18 am
welcome back. now the austrian chancellor, sebastian kurtz, has resigned, follows mounting fall october corruption allegations made against both the politician and also his in a circle. the claims against him include breach of trust, bribery, making false statements to a parliamentary committee. mister kurtz, though, denies any wrong doing, saying that the accusations are solely based on a no text message published in austria media. recently his decision to resign came after raids on his parties, office, the chancery, and also the finance ministry is part of the probe into the case. as the leader of the conservative block, he still holds parliamentary immunity from prosecution. although he insists his decision to step down is to bring political stability to the country. my
6:19 am
land is no vista 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. ship that soon not facebook has been in the headlines this week with the tech giant experiencing tea. serious outage is the 1st happened on monday when users of the platform along with whatsapp, an instagram were unable to get across to their pages for 7 hours straight. the 2nd disruption occurred on friday evening, continued for a couple of hours to ham. both the said to have been caused by technical errors. well, in an official statement, facebook engineer said the problem was due to the connection failure between the tech companies, data centers, the active shutter, knock on effect to on individuals and businesses all over the world. the platform itself was hit hard, and last up to $60000000.00 journalists and commentator chadwick more though,
6:20 am
has questioned how such a vast company can be so vulnerable to a technical failure. 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 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 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've got 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, and now with whistleblowers as well. i cannot impact this has
6:21 am
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 can just wipe out revenue, whether the ship that was intentional or it was just the mistake. putting a stop to this through a world with that facebook and what's 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 engineers, when they tried to get in, they found out that their electronic cards,
6:22 am
their passes simply did not work. so they had to literally forced their way into the server room to manually rebuild 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 sista 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 tendered 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
6:23 am
advantage of what's that not working. and that's the telegram messenger. they eserman 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 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 may have unfolding. have a look. we're working to get things back to normal. telegram you single, come over, the servers are up and my parents aren't home. so yes, 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, not well, apparently linked which didn't appear to billing to facebook. that they experienced
6:24 am
troubles, it really points out how much people on the 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 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 saw 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
6:25 am
relying on will facebook insists of the service i synch didn't actually to any user data being at compromised, but it still another set back on the last weeks after a former product manager claimed that the say from that would knowingly allow she's is t spread hate and misinformation, i guess, gave a said he's aware facebook the brand currently stands after these 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 by any trust effort to break it up, coupled with now what these lead documents show is and understanding by facebook
6:26 am
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 the user 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. 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 watching us international and the weekly that's, i think, looking so far today here are not international back again at the top of the ah aah and his other voice us the point,
6:27 am
but mostly with daniel's purely with castile with was just food, say that him and then you would you that is images, it goes up was good for supposedly good. have my did some i would say again to spend your music in which is spread. so weak, i'm on my side, so through hope was out of the to get the vote. if i give you with all of your group plan it some way up. all of the bella reviews. right. you didn't leave the to the shelf, little push up with
6:28 am
oh, is your media reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way? or are you being led to somewhere? direct? what is true? what is faith in the world corrupted? you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah, a
6:29 am
towing, welcome joy. a that has been a business and no one's responsibility. other powers, big and small, perceived that on the agenda there with little regard for the country, customs or aspirations. and the taliban has abandoned familiar status. the question a since trajectory and what it 4 times for the region as a whole is more grasping than ever to discuss with him now joined by a brother of the late resistance. later, i'm not shocked my suit and format garrison's ambassador to the united kingdom and that's what i miss it. it's great to talk to you. thank you very much for finding the time. you're welcome. thank you very much. thank you. now,
6:30 am
a few days after the taliban claim to full control of afghanistan, you called for international support. and i assume and agreeing to this interview, you are also seeking to mobilize the international public opinion. and i know that you are clearly mistrustful of the taliban. you have reasons for, you know, holding that opinion, but i wonder why i, you know, equally skeptical or cynical of the so called international community because foreign powers have used your country so cruelly, so cynically, for so many years. why ask for their support now? thank very much. well let me 1st i agree that i totally agree that unfortunately our country have been used and misused and no matter how much we try to make something at the end of the day and center. because because of your own interest, the user can keep was.
