11:07 pm
a terrorist. here is the footage little slow. me know, some this on january 1st. some strangers called me and offered to participate in the rally over $200.00. since i'm unemployed in kurdistan. they bought me plain things on january 2nd, nicely to my feet. and i was brought to an apartment where there were also citizens of standards based on there were about 10 people. i didn't understand what they were talking about. when the relative began, i got scared, returned to my apartment to spend the night, and the next day i decided to go home. then i was detained by the military. also. it also quotes him. meanwhile, relatives and friends and colleagues have identified the man in the video as re, crum rosa, phone of a courteous jazz musician. they claim he is being tortured and they don't know his whereabouts. authorities in his home country have said that he is not a terrorist. and have sent a protest notes to because like embassy,
11:08 pm
he was reportedly invited to give a concert in our medieval for the protests broke out. a crowd gathered at the embassy in the capital. bish tech, demanding his relief, a conflict on central ages. biggest republic and shares long borders with russia and china. the protests have been driven by long simmering resent bent over disparities and wealth with the most violent clashes erupting in almighty in the south, east of the country, reporting from their ears, or to correspond with garcia with the details of the destruction that has been unleashed. it had been said to say that the peaceful protests in kazakhstan caused all that much economic damage. it, it was of the peaceful protest. it was the riots the may. hm. and the looting afterwards, that of a scant days has caused more than $200000000.00 in damage to the country. mostly here in the city of amity and those are preliminary estimates. the real damage is
11:09 pm
expected to be much, much more kazakhstan has said repeatedly that it believes this wasn't spontaneous. it was organized, looting with more systematically hitting shopping centers and businesses. at the shopping center, c. c. t. v cameras caught the mayhem in this shopping center and elsewhere. looters, of course when for easiest pickings 1st that is electronic shops, jewelry stores, as well as a t. m. this, for example, was a food shop, not a lot left aside from a few broken gadgets. shelves were cleared in minutes. security could do nothing but watch and police were engaged in fatal fire fights with armed gangs elsewhere. and the looters went to town. there's very little doubt that this was planned because the people that came here and did this brought the right equipment. it takes a lot to get into cash machines,
11:10 pm
but they manage to do. it's taking the cash cassette posters. typical bullshit. i don't want this to be happening. of course it was scary. we stayed home for almost these were not off people. we were all resting after the new year's celebrations. were some foreigners were doing all this is we were waking up or people just went out to the square to peacefully protest and then left. and then it all erupted record that there. i heard some kind of running around voices, so i looked out available, most likely. they knocked out the doors of some shops. there are many electronic stores on the street level and it and then they got into the car and left. there was no police, which was it is the level of level they destroyed everything. people were in danger of being killed. it was scary. it's good that we live far away. it didn't reach us . everything was awful. that there is no street lighting yet. and people are not turning on the lights in their homes. people are afraid. there were different people on the streets. at 1st the protests were peaceful. monday's fishing there
11:11 pm
still worse, cuz it what can a pensioner say? i'm sitting at home, i'm afraid to go out. good, it's good that we have peacekeepers now. it was a terrifying time for civilians. many hidden their homes turning off the lights to avoid attention as gangs lay waste to the city of alma t. there was nothing they could do. no, when they could call for help. until the peacekeepers came ah ah ah ah ah ah, at the now secure airports of almighty evacuations are underway. russians and other
11:12 pm
nationals that being evacuated abroad charter flights and military cargo planes. they went through can only be described as an ordeal. rational up and yet it was scary. of course. yes, there was no informational communications. russia helped me along. so, but i'll get back to paris that i have to explain that how bad the situation here is. they don't report it on the news, so france is not organizing anything yet. i do not think as they say in france, that it is bad that the russians have arrived to this is assistance to the country, the situation, and the citizens of russia. yes, more than that now it's a more or less normal situation. thank god. we were waiting for these planes to evacuate us where stockton is with us. we faced a crowd that was armed, believed in hotel next to the square. we saw however, she was burning flash grenades were frown, so it was very scary. it's scary because i was born here and it has seeing all the events that happened in that happening. but everything seems to be getting better
11:13 pm
when you're sick. i'm more of a hassle. socrates could have put down the rights on their own. but how long would that take? perhaps there would have been even more casualties. all in all about a 100 people are being evacuated on this one military flight, but altogether about a 1000 people have contacted the russian culture and asked to be evacuated out of our multi alone, just just one city and they will be evacuated over about 10 or so flood, but authorities have told us that they expect more people to contact the counselors into request evacuation among them for a national. there's no more fighting in al mity though occasional fire flights are still being reported outside. the city now begins a long process of healing for a population that truly believed. nothing like wish could happen to them. ah,
11:14 pm
in what could be seen as a caustic opener ahead of crucial talks this week, us secretary of state anthony blinking has claimed, let me put in, wants to restore the old soviet union, and russia has a gun to the head of ukraine. former defense secretary leon panetta said a few years ago that what he believes drives potent is a desire to restore the old soviet union. do you agree? i think that's right. to make actual progress. it's very hard to see that happening when there's an ongoing escalation. when russia has a gun to the head of ukraine, with a 100000 troops near its borders, the possibility of doubling that on very short orders. moscow and washington are currently embroiled, and a diplomatic and political crisis. the u. s. accuses russia, they build up of troops at the border of ukraine. moscow in turn, has pledged to defend the don bass region. if there is a military escalation there. some are concerned that the u. s. is trying to curb
11:15 pm
rush as legitimate activities in the region. yes to this is of course a reflection of the general us strategy. they have their national interest in every country. russia can't have its national interest. but all the while the united states has its national interests all over the world. i have no doubt that the west, as in the case of but a roof will use the situation. first of all, in terms of propaganda and moscow, ahead of wednesdays talks between russia and nato says it won't succumbs pressure from washington. this follows reports. the bite in administration is working on tough sanctions against russia. if he does invade ukraine, russia will not bow to you as pressure and will not accept any concessions. the unilateral approach proposed by the u. s. nato can't be used as the basis for discussing security guarantees. these high level talks to avoid further escalations over ukraine are set to take place between the united states and russia on monday.
11:16 pm
but before anyone has even sat down at the negotiating table, the u. s. is already threatening big economic sanctions. biden's administration says that russia is planning to invade ukraine, even though moscow has time and time again. it is said, it is not planning to do so. so it did sure seems interesting that the white house would say it's going into these negotiations without optimism. while it seems like it's ready to torpedo the negotiations before they even began. we're going into these meetings with a sense of realism, not a sense of optimism. we are willing to see whether or not rush it comes to these talks with a spirit of seriousness, willing to discuss these issues in a concrete results oriented way, was by the way to do that, i will let them cheer themselves up somehow. but if you will, these talks are set to be held on the backdrop of heightening tensions with ukraine . they're also set to take place alongside a propos, treaty by russia for security guarantees between itself and nato. moscow's proposal
11:17 pm
primarily seeks to stop the for the further eastward expansion of nato into the former soviet sphere. this is something that russia said it was guaranteed many years ago. back when the former soviet president mikhail gorbachev was in power. however, the us state department has called moscow's proposal a list of non starters and nato officials have also echoed that sentiment saying they will not outright reject any countries that are looking to join the military alliance. so with nato officials in washington, seemingly unwilling to consider russia's terms, it remains to be seen how effective these talks are going to be. former pentagon security analyst, michael maloof, says blinkin statements paved the way for moscow to be vilified by the west once again. but i think he definitely lay the groundwork for a negative approach. it, many of his allegations that follows a particular narrative that they have to maintain to show that
11:18 pm
a russia remains the bad guy. just, just like they blame russia now for bringing in troops into cause it's down when it's part of a, of a general military alliance that exists there. these guys just have this problem with russia and they want to try and contain moscow from all, from all sides. russia has legitimate spheres of influence in that region. there's no question about it. they got russia, russian f ethnic, people living in those areas the same and dom, boston, ukraine. those 2 elements are not unrelated as far as i'm concerned, because it's my belief that like we saw in ukraine in 2014, with the, with the coo from the west, instigated by the west. we're seeing the same thing in catholics down right now. in preparation for these talks under france, now fierce protests erupted in major cities across the country. this weekend,
11:19 pm
many saw clashes with police over mandatory vaccine passports and other code restrictions. thousands demonstrated nationwide with riot police escorting, resorting in some cases to buttons and tear gases to try and restore order. ah ah. the protestors took to the streets of songs on saturday in the cities of paris. nice and of you non, to protest against the covert pass the scenes turn violent with police using tear gas and battens against many of the protesters a similar throw back to the scenes that we saw in late december. now this is despite the fact that on monday you had as many as 400000 people testing positive
11:20 pm
for covert in france. it comes as the french president emanuel micron used vulgar language against people who've chosen to be unvaccinated. his comments were to clyde across the fringe, public and across the political spectrum, and he made them as the national assembly debated a law that would see unvaccinated people being banned from much of public life. it is expected that their call will be introduced in the coming days. this comes as massive protests against covert continue across europe. in vienna, there were fumes and a lot of noise as protest as demonstrated against the vaccination and against covert restrictions. here in germany, in the city of magda burg, thousands of people took to the streets. i
11:21 pm
. it seems to had lined with the police using tear gas and battens to try and disperse the crawl. there were scenes of protests in many other cities across the country, including the capital berlin. at the same time, the german hotel and restaurant association has issued a statement saying that these latest restrictions are of a disaster for businesses and have a negative impact, particularly on restaurants, who rely heavily on wilkins. and they have urged the government to provide urgent assistance. the needs are being guided by the latest message from the world health organization stating that although the latest variant, omi called is less severe than the previous variant of delta, particularly amongst those people who have been vaccinated in no way. can it be classified as mild? just like previous variance, omicron is hospitalized people and it is killing people. in fact,
11:22 pm
the soon army of cases is so huge and quick that it is overwhelming health systems around the world. it is expected that there will be more protests in the coming days, as governments across europe continue to tighten restrictions and introduce mandatory vaccines to try and stop the spread of covered. now when you think of green energy, you may think of solar panels or wind turbines. well, however, meant a fuel crisis that you now wants to include natural gas and even nuclear power. plant, however, has attracted plenty of criticism with germany, calling it green washing tro davinsky has more of the story a new year and a new spat is brewing between new members. bickering has a rapid with state split over how energy from nuclear and gas sources should be classed in the future. the you want to categorize investments in some of these
11:23 pm
projects as being green, but others argue this is essentially green washing. label nuclear energy as sustainable is wrong. this is a high risk technology. it is questionable whether these greenwashing will find acceptance on the financial market at all. that we think nuclear technology is dangerous. we still think the waste issue is unresolved. we expressly reject the assessment on nuclear power. under the commissions proposal investment, the new nuclear energy facilities should be classified as a group if they meet certain technical standards. now that lead to accusations that the commission is destroying the credibility of the european eco label for financial investments with germany leading the charge of nations against these proposals, but could put it in direct collision. of course, with the blocks of the heavy weight that is france, 70 percent of energy here is generated from nuclear power. so,
11:24 pm
convinces president michael and nuclear is a way forward. he financed a 1000000000 yuru investment. expanding the industry will go home in order to guarantee frances energy independence to ensure our country's electricity supply and to achieve our objectives, in particular carbon neutrality. in 2050. we will, for the 1st time in decades, relaunch the construction of nuclear reactors in our country. and continue to develop renewable energies on the house, the support from some eastern block nations. with for the vacuum prime minister agreeing that climate and neutrality just called be met without you clear energy. but australia is furious over the plan, saying it will take the commission to court if it moves ahead with them. will examine the present draft carefully and have already commissioned a legal opinion on nuclear power in the taxonomy in this plans are implemented in
11:25 pm
this way. we will sue because atomic power is dangerous and not a solution in the fight against the climate crisis. meanwhile, germany is also coming under pressure over its anti nucleus stand from the czech republic. berlin has just all the clues of half of germany's remaining nuclear power plants as part of a plan to withdraw completely from the technology proc describes that as being a radical step. our government will have to work patiently and hard look for allies in europe and convince partners. finally, it also has to move forward with the construction of nuclear units and to encourage investment in other reasonable renewable sources. that is the way out of the energy crisis. the alternative is under development and poverty, and nobody wants that. all of this comes as europe is in the midst of an energy crisis, with some expert suggesting that the crunch will last roy the way until 2023. that
11:26 pm
moved by germany and closing nuclear react is also could push up prices even further. prices in german neil was twice as high as they could be. there is an energy crisis that the prices of the rising. rising cost means that the industry need more energy and that heating your home becomes expensive. we need cheap stable, any politician that run our country a lot focused on the interest of jim and industry in german customers. but that's the holo ideological agenda and de polar to your logical agenda. the 1st is that day thing. they don't need gas because they want to do everything with the nubile. it's a kind of magic. they believe that they can do that again. as the 2nd ideological agenda, they follow that there are hard core intro,
11:27 pm
rushing one solution to that coin. this could be the approval of the nord stream to pipeline that would supply us directly from russia to germany. however, with tension tie you between the you and moscow, the green light for that project is far from certain, leaving the you scrambling to find the money to pay increasing energy bills while members remain bitterly divided over the future of energy policy. charlotte tv ski r t para whether that for me and in fact it does it for the weekly. but don't worry, my colleague con bray will be here in about 32 and a half minutes with a another full and fresh look to stay with us. this is our internet, the you know, everybody concerned about that point being upon this game, but in fact,
11:28 pm
that's the only thing other than thought upon that came with an open source project built my volunteers. but there are a lot of policies out there. join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world. the politics sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then me ah, a time after tanzania watching going underground the team and i will be back for
11:29 pm
brand new season on wednesday, the 12th of january. but until then we'll be showing you some of your favorite shows from this season. the history buried by the victor. exactly 232 years since the creation of the united states department of war has today. the u. s. u k. in israel ratchet up tensions with iran august. the 7th is also exactly 31 years since the 1st american soldiers arrived in saudi arabia, as part to persian gulf will, one and 57 years since the passing of the gulf of tonkin resolution, which escalated doomed. washington mass killing for vietnam to lau and cambodia. the real history of these events is often missing from textbooks and history classes in nature. nations, a new volume by retired u. s. army officer major danny certian attempts to remedy all that by telling a true history of the united states. he joins me now who lawrence in kansas, daddy welcome to going underground before we get to this monumental history, the united states. i mean, it's up there with the howard zinn arguably and how you manage to teach this to
11:30 pm
a u. s. army soldiers at west point, which will get hundreds. mazing, the whole idea of it. you will take, obviously, on us troops fleeing in the dead of night, from afghanistan. will you fought with the u. s. army? well, i think it's a tragedy for the afghan people, but it's been an ongoing tragedy in general that there's been 40 years of war. and i think the american troops leaving the dead of night is a fitting way for the imperial u. s. sort of forces to go. this war is been over for 10 years or longer when, you know, when i fought there in 201112 and was the height of the u. s. true presence and we barely controlled anything but the ground. we stood on, i'm for the withdrawal. i don't think that american meaningfully, you know, influence the outcomes in afghanistan and the whole thing is a tragedy. but more.
