8:02 pm
well conservative. and he said, david amos has died following a multiple, stopping this afternoon during a constituency surgery meeting out the methodist church directly behind me here in south. and what exactly that is. it's an opportunity the members of the public to meet with the local m p face to face and discuss local political issues. but around midday this afternoon, a young man ran into the building wielding a knife before attacking the veteran politician and killing him. the time and beaten came to the scene, paramedics for treating him at the scene where he was fighting for his life. but he tragically passed away the sea. now essex, please. humph. released a statement saying that they were cool to the scene at 12 o 5. but confirming his death just after 3 pm. now, what they do know about the suspect is that he's 25 years of age. he was arrested,
8:03 pm
and a knife was recovered. here at the scene, he is now in custody. now the police say that they're not looking for anybody else in relation to this incident. now we don't know much about the suspect nor his motivation behind the attack. but what we are seeing now is tributes and statements are pouring in throughout the day across the political spectrum. we've also heard from forest johnson at the prime minister who is now in downing street, and he said, i think all our hearts are full of shock. and sadness today and above all, to david amos was kind and decent politician. he was one of the kindest, nicest, gentle people in politics. and he also had an outstanding record of passing laws to help the most vulnerable david with a man who believe passionately in this country and in its future, or people in the local community. absolutely heartbroken and have held
8:04 pm
a vidual to remember his life. they say he stood up for the rights of local people and used his parliamentary platform to advocate for them to. now of course david amos was $69.00. he spent 4 decades in politics. he currently held his seats since 997, but was serving m p since 1983, making him one of the longest standing m p. 's in government. now he was a big voice in many campaigns, not least, the breck that campaign, and also a huge animal rights advocate as well. sadly, he leaves behind a wife and 5 children. now as the nation is in an absolute state of shock, many also and now calling for more security unsafe protocols for members of parliament in britain, especially considering the really chilling similarities to the murder of jo cox who was stopped on short to death back in 2016 again,
8:05 pm
that was just before her very own constituency surgery meeting. it's also really sad to know that said david, a mrs. last tweet was actually talking about this constituency surgery invitation, saying to the local community to com and chat to him face to face for, for many m p. 's. this is a really past the no tragedy for them on to terrible reminder of the very real risks that they face in the jobs of a normal friday today. turns very hiring and very violent indeed, and a much investigation is now underway. so david amos had been a frequent guest here on r c, where he had his opinions and views on politics in the u. k. joining me now for more on this is conservative m p for south and west said david amos, i was elected on the same day, 983 as this gentleman. we need to have a government who know what they're doing. i don't mind hard work,
8:06 pm
in fact the already is it would go back to so as of constituents, so i had when i used to represent pounds of them. i don't think it's anything to do with policy politics and the number of seats to david. thanks for speaking to us. and let's go live now to dr. george some where they senior research fellow to the global policies, chief of london, mr. somewhere they thank you very much indeed for joining us. what are your thoughts on the killing of said david m as being declared a terrorist incident? well, it was really all bits. i think that when the story broke, and there was a considerable delay in revealing the identity of the origin of the perpetrator or the perpetrator, that it was likely to be a terror attack. and he was likely to be someone motivated by islamic
8:07 pm
i think it's a, it's a tragic, it's a, it's a very unfortunate event, but it follows you know, the terror attack very recently in no way. also, you do to islamic motivation and we're now getting elements that daily horrific a terrorist attacks in afghanistan. so i think the issue of islamism and terrorism is going to be a major question in the near future. yeah, exactly. isn't shocking that such a time could take place so publicly secures had such meetings. turner, a fairly relaxed. yes. yes. it is a bother the old world of the you know, where would be very familiar with and p. they have these regular surgeries, in which their constituents come to them all their problems,
8:08 pm
all very relax or informal, but it's part of an old world and you know that that world sadly is gone, i think. but now it just, it has to change off the list. and also off the joe cox's mother 5 years ago that you know, that, that nice, cozy old world is no more. so and do you think that probably security rolls around m p 's meetings with can see trends will change in the wake of this incident and if you have them, how well i think obviously there's going to be the when you come in there's going to be the usual risking which is very unpleasant and i imagine to be some kind of security detail with any n p, we with police officers or some possible security that will be assigned by parliament. but the pleasant one on one that the constituents used to have with
8:09 pm
there and peas. i think that's the thing of the or how the implications for the suspects of the killing being declared the terrorist attack. well, the implications are quite serious because of course, as you know, it's something like, i don't know, hundreds of thousands, we don't even know exactly how many were evacuated from. afghanistan has been notoriously a center of tara for decades now. that wasn't really proper venting. and, and the real question, i mean, would be, you know, who are these people now being brought somebody being brought into the u. k, some have been brought to europe, a great number of them have been taken to the united states. and there was a real issue, which is, are we going back to 2015 when the was the agree i agree,
8:10 pm
migrant, and accompanying terrorism? i think that's the thing, you know, given this event, given the event in no way. and now is that now been 4 major terrorist attacks in afghanistan, and supposedly of taliban had had conquered dealt with the terrorist issue in afghanistan. so overseas happened. so this is going to be a very serious issue. so and what does this mean for the u. k. daniel, do you think the terror threat level will be raised in light of this or talk or is it hurley to say so it will take time to analyze the whole thing. i think it will be raised. i think it, this is of magnitude greater than previous terrorist attacks because you can have somebody going crazy and killing of bystanders in a london street or even killing
8:11 pm
a police officer run along the st. louis, you're clearly horrific when you stop murdering and then p and n t, you 26. you and that you are raising it to a completely different level because now you're talking about drinking. an elected representative in the name of some crazy di ology. and i think that there's no question that the british government is going to have to take a very serious measures. so it's, it's, it's the level of any previous attack, at least in the u. k. r. i then dr. john, somewhere a senior research fellow, the global policy institute of london. thank you very much indeed for your time. we appreciate now a us marine have been sent and stuff leading guilty to disobey his superiors and had criticized the military leadership for the way they handle the exit from
8:12 pm
a gun. it's done. see, a shallow remains ottoman that, that they told bronze need to be held to account. our senior corresponded broadcast, the fix of the story. there is the opinion that he got off very light. all things considered the scandal that he caused winter when right up to congress and the united states military, we will know it doesn't like scandals. it does, it's best to deter for those who would start scandals and it, it squashes scandals out sometimes in a very harsh way. so it was surprising that instead of a pads jail time, perhaps a dishonorable discharge, all he was sentenced to was a $5000.00 fund, which will be dogged from his wages next month, as well as a letter of reprimand. there's told off basically. so he gets an honorable or less than honorable discharge, as well as gets the keep all of his or all the pension that he has worked up on the
8:13 pm
17 years of service before he went into the court. ah, he said that ultimately he had to bear responsibility for his actions. just as those above him had to bear responsibility for their actions as including the chaotic withdrawal from canister. i did what i did because i thought it was in the best long term interest of the marine corps going forward. i'm still demanding accountability. there were those who supported him. have said that, yes, these evacuation was completely humiliating. it was insulting to all the americans that sacrificed their lives who owe their health in order to fight that born of canister and for america to leave in such a manner. it was absolutely tragic. there were also those that said that we should have done this because the united states military has a different code of conduct and. a so they're not allowed to criticize those above them of senior rank. but ultimately, over the course of all these videos that we saw released by him in the build up to
8:14 pm
this trial, he was making one point and 11 point only that somebody must be held accountable for the disaster. as many americans he, it that we saw at the end of august at the airport and cobbled people are upset because they're senior leaders, let them down. and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed this up. i'm not saying we've got to be in the in afghanistan forever, but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield, the strategic air berries before we evacuate everyone. i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his bad assumptions, not because i've been dear, but because the senior leader he to be help how to the same standard as us the terrorist attack the on the input of gobble and the 26th of august. it was a, it was a mess. there were almost 200 people killed. everybody has admitted that yes mistakes were made. but to date,
8:15 pm
nobody has decided to bear responsibility for what happened there and cobble they tell evans return to power. following the u. s. exit has failed to improve the country security situation. according to local officials, more than 40 people were killed in a tank on a most con, friday schools more were injured just a warning. you may find the former images to stabbing explosion happened at a sham most in the city of kandahar during friday prayers. a large crowd had gathered that the taliban government says it's launched an investigation. so friday's blast comes just a week after an explosion tool through another shame mosque in the north of the country. at least 50 people were killed. there is like state co sign province claimed responsibility without heart or c contributor. richard matters. let's bank and what happened then, and asked why isis is intensifying instead like services in the country. last week, a tragic terrorist attack in afghanistan. the explosion occurred during friday.
8:16 pm
prayers at a mosque in conduce, in northern part of the country. at least a 100 people were killed or wounded. most of the victims has ara shias and a thing minority. isis k quickly stepped up to claim responsibility for the attack . but with one intriguing detail, turns out the suicide bomber was the you grew muslim from china's changing province . this is very interesting because you girls are indeed a minority muslim population in china. usually the only thing you hear about them is that the chinese government is committing genocide against them. but here's something the media i haven't told you. there are indeed many ogres in afghanistan, militants who are members of various jo, hottest groups like al qaeda arises there, actually. so many of them, the united nations put out a report in june about foreign fighters in of gaston. the report estimates that there are between 8010000 foreign terrorist fighters,
8:17 pm
comprised mainly of individuals from central asia, the north caucasus region of the russian federation, pakistan and the shin, january thomas region of china, among others. although the majority are affiliated foremost with the taliban, many also support al qaeda. others are allied with iso or have iso sympathies. another one of these groups is e t i m, which stands for the east torcous don islamic movement. this huger extremist group used to be on the united states list of terrorist organizations. but for some reason, in 2020, the united states, remove them from the list us cozying up to terrorist groups, using them as proxies for regime change in countries. they don't like where we seen that before. latin america of gannons, dan, syria, speaking of syria, there are 5000 uga terrorists over there, fighting alongside other jaundice. but just going back to afghanistan for the last
8:18 pm
20 years, the u. s. has had an enormous military footprint on china's doorstep. now the most of its truth of withdrawn and the united states is shifting its focus from them, at least to china. us wants to keep china's border with janice, then as unsafe as possible, and a constant worry by tacitly endorsing, for the very least turning a blind eye to terrorist groups. and the u. s. in the u. k. m is supporting separatist movements in china going back decade. this is all part of america strategy to mess with china. create chaos, divide and conquer with the united states is making a huge mistake once again. just like they back the majority, dean and the 1980s to fight soviet. now they're implicitly backing you the terrorists in order to fight the chinese. and you know, there comes a point where you really have to understand that backing jihad has, is not a good idea. there is nothing beneficial about someone blowing themselves up and committing a terrorist attack. i mean, this is incredible. how many times is it gonna take for the united states to
8:19 pm
realize that backing j dean and of gannon, stan, or anywhere for that matter is a really bad idea. they did it in the 1980s. they back been loudon. it came back to bite them. it always does, and this is no exception. and earlier we ask for his could come and say to chris bon brand until actually his ron becca was a 20 year loan american. and had tara operation actually achieved flop ganeth son. today case, american red occupation increased the number of charges groups increase the energy high despite us on the growing the afghan, aside as a reaction seemed what the americans did to could industry killing of civilians by drawing the bombing at science at the for i don't think we should hold off the american presence as being a forced to stability in afghanistan. it actually de, stabilize the country across the board. and it rebuilt support the tower. but the mason point on makers is that the americans are not part of a solution in afghanistan. they were part of the problem. let's remember the big
8:20 pm
picture, the context. when the united states invaded afghanistan on october 7th, 2001, there was no isis. the whole war on terror by the united states, which is included the death of 250000 afghans during the past 20 years. and that has created that has created that has been the trigger or the catalyst for the further expansion of ice is or isis like formations. so from a on its face, the war on terror has been a complete and utter failure because rather than containing or stopping this kind of extremism or terrorism, it has accelerated and expanded it as a phenomenon. still had the ceiling into a stall most is no backing down up to stopping us whooshing from apparently attempting to violate russian territorial waters that i'm not coming up shortly.
8:21 pm
join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. i'll be speaking the guess of the world of politics. sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm. well the jig is ah, rather glad merican country armed with volcano energy is calling out the wall street and the whole financier class. ah also for eric room identify 2 types of freedom, freedom from and freedom to. and while we all idealized the lesser achieving the
8:22 pm
former, the freedom from use on abuse is no small feat in this day and age. this is especially true for africa, which for centuries has been exploited under all sorts of pretext. what needs to happen with the cotton and to truly take its deserve place in the world? ah ah, this is nancy international, let's move on now. so the former us national security advisor don't. bolton will be sharing, he saw us on the us pull out along with other foreign policy issues. when he sits down with alex, he's going into grandchild. you'll be able to watch the full interview here later on saturday. you say in your book the room where it happened, the afghanistan deal that's trumps one time will prove who is right. and the full extent to the deal may not become apparent until after trump leaves office. what is
8:23 pm
your assessment? as a former national security adviser of fee by the administration foreign policy, especially on afghanistan. well, i think this is one of those few instances where biden and trump agree on policy both wanted to get out of afghanistan and both ignored the consequences. i think many people thought were foreseeable, what biden did was take trump's deal, which was flawed in many, many respects, and essentially adopted it as is on policy, disregard of the advice of senior advisors and the pentagon. the state department, the white house, and i think the consequences have been playing to say return to afghanistan to control by the taliban. and everything that's flowing from that, including the likelihood of foreign terrorist returning. and again, using afghanistan as a base to plan terrorist operations around the world. so this is a retreat by the united states, from the international stage,
8:24 pm
something by and believe then since at least 2009. so i say i radically trump the wave done it to i think it's a mistake for the u. s. i think it's a mistake for well stability. certainly it's a mistake for the people of afghanistan. tougher work isn't a silly, are threatening strike action over a new kind of a health path system with the run is held in several major stages across the country. people are protesting against new rules which require ok to either show proof of vaccination or negative kind of a test. well, go without pay. i'll europe correspondent piece only. i witnessed one such marching room, and he sent us this report to a it's lee has become the latest country to see it. citizens upset about the introduction of coven 19 vaccine passports, the, the e. u. green pass, a digital certificate that allows you to show that you've received a vaccination to is commonplace across the whole of the european union. however,
8:25 pm
in italy, they're looking to use it to a stronger degree than it is being used elsewhere. and that's why on friday we saw demonstrations in 9 different cities across italy, the largest of those demonstrations was interested in the northeast of the country . we can have a look at what was going on there right now. for fiesta, we are here to protest against the green pass for workers would think that the green pass is an unlawful tool, an improper one that should not be forced upon the workers because it is discriminatory. so we are demonstrating against this government degree audit and also today our constitution is being trampled on what is happening to there's like back in 1938 when i say no to this discrimination anteriano, this deepening cluster vite, we're not looking for confrontation, both openness and opportunity for reasoning. here we are talking about economic recovery, but whose economic recovery her families left even more in crisis. those who previously could not make until the end of the month now find themselves in an
8:26 pm
average of $200.00 or 300 years less from having to pay for the testimony. while the reason people have been upset with this move by the italian government to demand that the digital coven pass, the green pass be shown is because they've gone farther than most of the european countries. people are gonna have to show this in order to go to any job already you having to show it to, to get into restaurants, to eat indoors, also to go to, to more leisure activities. but for everybody to have to show want to go to work. that's a different issue entirely, especially when it comes with the prospect of a 1500 year old fine for those that can't produce a cove at green pass. now we've heard from a union leaders, particularly those involved with the ports in which shipping saying it could potentially cause huge problems with the supply chain in italy. because many of the workers who are employed as things like ports, they come from eastern europe and have been vaccinated with russia's sputnik
8:27 pm
vaccine. now, the sputnik job is not approved by the european medicine's agency. and therefore, if you've been vaccinated with sputnik, you can't get a european green pass, so therefore you would be be falling fall of the rules here. now those demonstrations took place on friday. we are expecting demonstrations on saturday of a different kind. now these are going to be organized by the, at the left party here in italy as well as the, the oldest union in the country. it's after the headquarters were ransacked last week during a demonstration by fall, right, ellamin. so the anti covered pos, movement. now they've organized this protest to say no to fascism across a italy and would be keeping an eye on that protest as it develops throughout saturday. and journalist, danielle de, nor said, told, as he thinks they turn and government is trying to st. stand the constitution already set in the autumn and is trying to push the green pass to bypass the cross
8:28 pm
additional point that some demonstrate there are trying to to check to the solution . they haven't to, by to the commission political issue that they're trying to push a lot of people like r q or senior people that i'm on. but to me to do to do so. if you have to mean young people to me, your worker, maybe you can have trouble in logistics. you can have troubling security because, you know, or how to me that out or maybe the 20 percent of our how to me. i still need to our government are trying to to discuss with the defects and give them some i don't know backseat benefit, we'd about this pc office. i think from being frank, being something like the menu restriction,
8:29 pm
not liking you need to leave the other fancy, not even try to to, to discuss something like the war. if you like. one of the 1st he writes, need, the website was really, really hard to switch back that other country than that not going to be my opinion. they're not gonna be the same as he is doing right now. the defense ministry has summoned the us military, shy of the naval forces, blocks and alleged append by an american war ship to violate russian territory waters in the city of japan. the u. s. military has denied dedications with more of the story. his, his daniel armstrong, russia, the defense ministry, has summoned the us military attach a after a u. s. war ship attempt to cross russian maritime borders in the russian far east . now that happened when the u. s. s. chafie attempted to cross the russian borders
8:30 pm
. the pizza, the great war ship, had been operating according to sources in the sea of japan. up until that time. now, the sea of japan is important because right there at the moment, russian and chinese forces undertaking military training. the maritime interactions 2021 taking place, and that includes the use of live artillery. now the u. s. s. chafie attempted across the board is and instead of taking heed of warnings, raised is called flags that indicates a helicopter taking off from its deck. he also makes it impossible to change its speed on its course. it was eventually persuaded to turn back by the russian anti submarine vessel. the admiral 3 boots. now, the russian defense ministry has called this a grave violation of international rules. whereas the white house, on the other hand, the said he still is not aware of any confrontation between us and russian warships
