7:02 am
moved 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 is that it was unanimously considered an abject failure. metallic banners 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 in the press in there on television, internationally is, is who the we blame. we need to consider some uncomfortable truth that we did not fully comprehend the depth of corruption and poor leadership in nursing or ranks. that we do not rational damaging effect,
7:03 am
are frequent and unexplained rotations by president gunny of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp that there was only so much for which and for home men of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year multi administration drawdown. not a 19 month or 19 day neo, this scandal is no anywhere 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 some one held responsible and the biden and miss administration . as was the pentagon so far, they have done their best to absolve themselves of all accountability for what many americans again see as a catan tripping. 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.
7:04 am
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 ah ah, we are the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and yet we have the highest child poverty rate of almost any country on earth.
7:05 am
from the perspective of the civilian, there is scott evidence here on the ground in afghanistan of any of that money other making its way here aside from path 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 did industrial quantities. the taliban are of course, jubilant. they have dismantled everything that the united states built here, the human rights, the tolerance, the democratic institutions, and a matter of weeks. and they are jubilant. they have after 20 years of answer,
7:06 am
rection and rebellion. believe they won, won by 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 enough, are 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 at the un, bob from
7:07 am
a security perspective. yes, al qaeda in afghanistan 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. we're going to have reporting there will also this week and afghans scans scores of people were killed in an explosion of the sheer mosque in the countries north and city of condos. the, the blast happened during friday. prayers over a 100 people reported to be injured there and i says, k so. so palmer, it said was behind the attack, hits the sunny terrorist groups. second assault on a mosque at a moderate days. and they have a long history of targeting sheer muslims in afghanistan to a local journalist visited the site of the blast and sent us by this report in the week. so the explosion was so powerful, according to some officials, the new taliban government had warned attacks like this one were possible. earlier
7:08 am
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. as them faith were targeting chia and iraq, they were 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 the, as i said, this is actually the work of them expired because they're concerned that she are as they're, etc. is there another good believer over slam? so this is, this is the executor. but i mean, the major aim is to these that belies afghanistan, to actually be stabilized by taliban rule and afghanistan. so this is mrs. the beginning and i wouldn't be surprised actually more of the bitterly at that's like this will take place and a few weeks and months sir. ahead. we're running parallel on
7:09 am
a political side of things. senior representatives from the u. s. and the taliban met. so this weekend in carter's capital door, these are the 1st such talk since the u. s. polo from afghanistan. officials from both sides said the ongoing negotiations. herb centered on the evacuation of foreign citizens and afghans from the country. and it took center extremism. but the taliban projected joint operations with the us to suppress isis k in afghanistan. and while the u. s. has made it clear the talks do not signal the recognition of the taliban. anti war activists. brian becker in the week. think sir, in his view, it clearly does 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
7:10 am
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 that 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 some of the news this sunday just came in a couple of hours ago and he's full people have reported to been killed at a massive explosion of the yamani port city of aidan b. the report say it was a car bomb targeting the local governor and another senior official both of whom survived. yemen has been in the grip of civil war for the past 7 years with
7:11 am
islamist rebels fighting for control of the middle east and country. on this came in to news him from russia or a plane crash in the central. the countries killed 16, including the pilot and co pilot 6 others survive. put their in a critical condition this afternoon, the planar let l 410 at 20 members of a local parachute club aboard. at the time, it was a twin engine at croft apparently came down soon after taking off near the town of men's lengths, which is around a 1000 kilometers east of where i'm talking to from here. moscow authorities believe the instant may have been caused by engine failure, the still trying to work it out plain which belong to the club. had been in service since 1987. those boiling gas prices in europe have been reduced to more of a similar this weekend after vladimir putin said russia is ready to stabilize the
7:12 am
market, addressing the countenance energy crisis. on wednesday, the president added that moscow would continue in its commitment to ukraine in regards to gas transit to us from yesterday, she gasped 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 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 has no need to undermine gas prompts confidence is an absolute reliable partner in all respects. or president potent earlier blamed europe's gas crisis on an overly hasty transition. he said to green
7:13 am
energy coupled with brussels decision to switch from long term gas contracts to a volatile spot. trading 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 ah, despite the pledge to help reduce prices in europe, moscow still being accused though of manipulating the markets. indeed, congressman michael mccaul, called for sanctions against the brand new nold stream to gas pipeline. we spoke of
7:14 am
maximilian crop these debbie pay field, tentative germany party and also karen. can i sell a form of foreign minister for austria? they both gave their perspectives on how politics they thought is clashing with energy security. about 7 years ago. that could have been more supply to do your market wire pipeline that was never built them. use house 3 south stream was prevented from being constructed in the summer 2014. and so, so now it seems as if all the i and 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 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,
7:15 am
for instance, opechi arab countries use the in the 9th and seventies. we had several instances non supply and non export of oil. this what we can call it something like an an a to weapon. if you want to use that met tougher, but in the current context of the many context long term delivery castillo complex, it's exist between the russian federation and various you countries. 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 opportunities and a new world or europe is not any longer, completely dependent to the united states. so d, america, europe, america, are playing politics to preserve their global leadership role as the only superpower and they don't care about consumer prices and energy security in europe,
7:16 am
take care on their arm. and since we have all others pro american politicians fear of 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 be a no because of economic interest. but the reason behind this angie, rushing leave is gee, and politics made a deep stain on washington dc. thanks for watching out international this weekend to kevin. oh, in here we always appreciated all the team that this is coming up. wasn't this big news, billions of facebook uses, unable to use the site for hours because of technical problems being blamed for the outage shut. once happened twice. we'll tell you more off the break with
7:17 am
him on driven by drink shaped bankers and those with there's sinks. we dare to ask ah
7:18 am
ah ah, ah, also in chances of passing curtains resigned, it falls, mounting, followed of a corruption allegations made against both a politician and his inner circle. the claims against him include breach of trust, bribery and making false statements to parliamentary committee. mister kurtz denies any wrong doing, saying that the accusations are solely based on all the text messages published in austria. media recently is decision to resign came after raids on his part, his off this the chancery and also the finance ministry. as a part of the probe into the case as the leader of the conservative block, he still holds parliamentary immunity from prosecution. he insists his decision to
7:19 am
step down is to bring political stability to the country. men landis new v sticker . 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, if the throne of will say spoke. now next has been in the headlines this week. big time was now if you're going to do it, do it in style. the attack john experiencing to serious outages. the 1st blackout happening on monday when the uses of the platform along with whatsapp and instagram, we're unable to get access to the pages for 7 hours straight. the 2nd disruption which happened on friday evening, continued for a couple of hours. both the said to have been caused by technical errors within the company. in official statement, facebook engineer said the problem was because of a connection failure between the tech companies data centers. the outage had a knock on effect on individuals and businesses all over the world. the platform
7:20 am
itself was hit hard. it last, almost $60000000.00. journalist and commentator chadwick more telling us, sir, a big question mark about how such a vast company could be so vulnerable to a technical failure like this. not once but twice. 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. busy 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,
7:21 am
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, acknowledging back 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 can just wipe out revenue. whether the shut off was intentional or it was just the mistake. so for you was at paradise, i was at pain when he goes, donald took his for world without a spoken word. 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,
7:22 am
the facebook headquarters or wherever their services are located. so engine is when they tried to get in, they found out that their electronic cards, their passes simply did not work. so they had to literally force 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
7:23 am
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 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 did 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 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
7:24 am
general, this whole thing, it underlines especially the fact that other businesses not, not, will account in 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 used facebook 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,
7:25 am
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. yeah, well facebook insisted the service outage didn't lead to any use. the dates have been compromised, but it's still another setback, isn't it wakes up for a former product manager claim the social network knowingly allows uses to spread hate and misinformation in the week, i guess, gave us that he's on where facebook the brand currently stands off to 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 preteens and children. i mean, even children, so there is a kind of convergence of several bad instances. i mean,
7:26 am
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 officials, that crest of the wave is now headed downwards. a 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, 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. yeah, but wait for them mostly. well, the other is the way the week shaped up from the world news i was reported by us to you. thanks for watching out international this sunday. i'm kevin. oh, it 3 the team here. we hope you have a great rest of the weekend. ah
7:27 am
