The best of the uk's automative and defense injury nearing skills and successfully integrating sixteen thousand Into of the entire range of the british army's current fleet from challenger tanks to landrovers. This doesn't fill me with confidence. In view of what we've just seen. We invested more than twelve million in a new. Uk omid fighting vehicle center of excellence. Well this is just outrageous. So they begin three point. Five billion taken twelve million out of a tube to make up pr center. Yeah that profits are pretty huge. They will some comments in the ogle about the prophets fake walls. But it's it's billions and we've established a new omid pointing vehicle-assembly integration and testing facility in south wales to deliver ajax to the british army. So this is just disgraceful stuff but what we need to understand is this is part of a program to dismantle britain's own capability so his the daily mail from april two thousand seventeen where it says tanks for the memories brit names tanks production off to ninety three years future tank models will have german guns and if we get into the detail just did a little bit for our audience.

Journalist ex fleets editor. He says Financial industry consultant on political communications special advisor to the u k on the eu He's calling blair a war criminal who deserves to put on trial. He said His blair's acquiescence to us demands for an attack on so the said earned blair the us medal of freedom from george bush and twenty years of Appropriate opprobium from british public. Which has only increased as the years apostol on par with his own Immense personal wealth opole in two thousand seventeen to third of the british public. Would like to see blair put on trial as a war criminal. I think that is probably understatement of the truth but nonetheless It's an interesting article. Do have a readout on. It's very interesting because of course at blair started this whole issue of can we say this of Islam and terrorism in the country because we have got involved in these countries in the first place. we've been really have this problem with lloyd's weapons of mass destruction and his support of course for the knowing eleven so story so now that we're out of afghanistan We've got The rhetoric started builds to make us fearful of the next terrorist attack. And this is ken mikhail. At from 'em i five And he has been saying that the terrorist threats of the uk. I'm sorry to say is a real during saying he's particularly concerned. that Neither afghanstan has fallen to the taliban that is likely to have emboldened uk terrorists. He said He told bbc this. I think on the today programme The twilight terrorism or at least the threat from terrorism would change overnight There could be morale-boost for terrorists. So they've got a morale-boosting they're they're coming back wasn't go to morale boost. The free equipment in the military equipment was left to them in in afghanistan. He said the terrorist threat to the uk. I'm sorry to say is a real enduring thing. There's no doubt that events not ghanistan will of heartening and bolton some of those extremists and so being vigilant to precisely these kinds of risks is what my organizations focused on with a threat to a with a range of other threats. Terrorist threats tend to change overnight in the sense of directed applauding training camps or infrastructure. The sorts of things that al qaeda employed enough ghanistan at the time of nine eleven These things do inherently take time to build and the twenty year effort to reduce the terrorist threat has been for from us. grimstad has been largely successful.

Biden Administration Mum on Number of Americans Left in Afghanistan

"The number one story is the number one story. It's hard to find any about. The americans left behind afghanstan. The reason you won't find out about it much. As the wall street journal headline this morning biden seeks to shift focus to domestic issues after afghanistan exit. He wants us now to forget that he abandoned the thousands of americans and l. Pr's and i'm just going to start saving thousands of americans because while we know between one hundred two hundred american citizens and we don't know if that's the real number i frankly have credibility issues with team biden because they're being paid about this but what does it say hundreds of citizens and thousands of legal permanent residence l. ers so it's thousands of americans because an american green card holders at american. They're not a full citizen but they choose not to be but they are often days weeks months a year away from citizenship. You know a lot of l. pr's bet you don't even know that they are l. pr's they just haven't told you their green card status and they're americans in their stranded there as well. That doesn't count are afghanistan allies and so team biden. Doesn't wanna talk about it. I'm gonna talk about it a lot. I'm asking you this morning at one. Eight hundred five two one. Two three four. Is this a story. You care about the americans abandoned and now that president biden wants you to forget about because he doesn't want to hostage crisis even though he's got one now four americans got out. Yesterday they got over the border. We don't know which border the group that help them. Across the border Was done with private assistance. There are several americans on the runway at mazari. Al shreve which is the second largest city in afghanistan. The taliban are not giving permission to the airplanes which have been there for maybe a week. Now maybe six days. Maybe it's seven days now waiting to take off. The state department has been blamed in part. But they say it's not our fault. The taliban hold them hostage

"Six thousand troops ride. That can deal with a lot of contingencies. Might my sense is once it starts to move. They wanna move it all out very fast in that could be very messy moment. I mean this is again. Why like this. Why that's important we have to. This has to play out and and the the objective is to get as many people out for as long as you can safely. You can't mitigate all these things it's possible that people are gonna shoot jonah way out you just have to try to execute and and trying to judge to sing and real time on social media. Don't do that. I think it was wrong. When everybody was presuming that the biden people are abandoning the afghans entirely five days ago. Now i see some people kind of dunking and the other direction. Look at this is the greatest evacuation history. We're in the middle of it. Let's just let this thing play out here yet. Chill the fuck out with that. This is not over until it's over in like a lack of avenue. It's i'm with you so ben. We're clearly the very beginning of what will likely be a big fight over refugee admissions. Yeah the good news is that the. Cbs poll over the weekend found that eighty one percent of voters including seventy six percent of republicans. Say they want to help. Afghan interpreters the united states. That's an amazing number. The bad news is that there is already a concerted right-wing effort to undermine that sentiment. Here is hollywood. Darling turned venture capitalist turned. Belated maga suck up ohio. Senate candidate jd. Vance on tucker. Carlson forty percent of afghans. Believe that suicide bombing is a reasonable way to solve a problem. Who wants people like that in their community. Now we know that. Jd dance is a piece of shit. Our and that he's doing this for political purposes is back in the day he attacked trump and said the following quote trump people. I care about afraid imigrants muslims etc because of this. I find him reprehensible. God wants better of us but now. Jd is worshipping at the altar of republican primary voters. So that's the issue here but you know republicans. No this is what their base wants to hear the caravans. The you know syrian imigrants etcetera. What do you think is the best way to take this. Fight on these. I'm just worried about democrats. Making argument is basically like look. We promised these afghan interpreters. We'll take care of them. And then the republican rejoinder will be. I didn't promise anything. You know what i mean. We gotta take care of america. I am not worried about the terrorism fearmongering etc. Well first of all. Where did the forty percent of work that he probably made in kenya break. First of all That's such a bad faith predictable. Racists nativist opportunistic piece of bullshit from jd van. Toronto beat supplements put this guy. Yeah he's trying to beat the only guy in the country who acts like an even bigger creep than him but look. Let's just step back here and look at this right so first of all the numbers. Let's we should lay them on the table and i spent. I called around to try to get a sense of this because it's pretty ambiguous. But how many afghans could credibly say that. They worked with us for us etc. It's a big number because when you add up yeah the interpreters but it's also military kind of contractors. The guys who were you know you see at the airport. During the perimeter the people who do maintenance or things like that but then also as we talked about afghans who took money from your cad. All this i think you gets you. North of one hundred thousand people then attributed to the the nato warford afghanstan for twenty years that include their families. No okay so that's what i can get to like. Then you're basically that after about five hundred thousand people right when you talk about. How many kids. These people have in their spouses now. Nobody would suggest that five hundred thousand. Afghan refugees quarter should be settled in the united states. this were an allied effort. Comes in and you've already had the uk. Say they take twenty thousand canaday the two thousand and if you kind of project that out over the nature lines part of what. The biden team. I think has to do is say that. We're not the only ones that everybody who is involved in this war. Effort is during their share to take in these afghans who worked with us who blood with us who saved our lives who sacrificed with us And we're doing this kind of proportional to our role in that so we should take more than everybody else by a good healthy margin given how much this was our war and given that much bigger than those countries Then i think look. You're never going to win. These fights in a defensive crouch right and so the thing that we learned the obama years i think is that when we were trying to kind of make an argument about the vetting of the refugees and all the stuff will. You're never gonna be as you know. Trump just said super extreme. Vetting right like you're never gonna win a securitized argument. No ben in by just give a speech and he talked about how they're going to do a background check on people that are that are coming out right now. I just thought to myself. It's literally just to do a background check on someone who's who's lost all their possessions. You have to make a values arc. Yeah you just have to go at it directly. Say it is. Our moral responsibility is who we are as a country to not not just refugees but in particular to take refugees who died by our soldiers who saved our soldiers lives. And frankly what what. I think biden and the democratic party have this time around that we didn't have under obama is is our military it you know. These people have been so passionate about wanting to get out the people that served with them to get out there. Interpreters those powerful voices but even absent that you know. I think that like this is a this is a simple argument like these people sacrificed for us. They stood up for the things that we believe in like. We have an obligation to them in. That's part of who we are as a country. Like i think this has to be an all hands on deck no d. once you start being defensive then then the appearance to the public and i remember from being a lot references. A wait a second. These guys are nervous about something. You know Or if these guys are saying we have to do extreme vetting of these refugees. Why we're not just go with the people talking. We should just keep them out. You know So it's it's gonna be a big fight and by the way it's going to last a long time because these these aren't just going to be decided next month's this is going to be years that they're afghans who are trying to get permanent homes. We gotta find these. Interpreters find the servicemembers they worked with. Send them to every state. Sit them down for local. Tv interviews where they tell their story about how they work together. How you know this interpreter saved this marines life. I mean like bring it home right. I mean that's why that's why this last week has been so searing because we're talking about these these personal stories you know the personal You know the struggles of the people trying to get into the kabul airport etcetera like we have to tell that story once they get here as well about like what they did for us as a country. Yeah an you know if anything positive can come of this whole calamity. it's the lives at all. These afghans are going to lead in places like the united states. The things that they're going to do here for the next several decades like the way that they're going to rich communities the ways that they're gonna make their mark and by the way if the taliban proves incapable of governing well and that starts to crack at some point like you want also like a diaspora that has experienced in civil society and the new so there. there's so many reasons Wide to our benefit not just from a moral perspective but from from every other perspective to to deal with this you gotta make sure these people.

"Bad so pen that clip you just played comma harris. That was from april when joe biden originally said we gotta get out of afghanistan. Yeah april twenty fifth. I believe but she hasn't said anything in the last six days. Okay oh then. I stand by my therapy. They are protecting her so that She doesn't have the stink does matter. She's she's the worst and nobody likes her. So right she. She thinks she's on her way to the oval office and the white house. But we'll see you know. I don't know if we've ever seen this kind of bipartisan. Discussed with the with the president me. Both sides are admittedly the even. The democrats are admittedly pissed off here and frustrated with the guy because for anyone with half a brain or even a partial heart. This goes way beyond the petty bickering that we normally see. When you see the kind of catastrophe occurring right before your eyes. That's unfolding right now. You're not human if you're not absolutely horrified so whether or not you believe that. Our economic system for instance should be free market based or come from a central location and manufacture and distribution should be handled by the government. None of that matters right now because people are dying as a result of this president's debacle and we have up to fifteen thousand americans who were still. There left behind to try to fend for themselves. Good luck everybody. Yeah we don't have any capability to get you out because of this president's bockel buckle. We've got brave afghans. Who helped american soldiers at great risk to themselves. We made promises to we. Said we'd there for them. And now they're in grave danger because of this president's debacle everybody knows the biden would never follow a plan outlined by trump and now there's proof he didn't do that plus trump hasn't been around for seven months. So how are you gonna try to pin this on him. He's not the one that didn't lift a finger before the troops pulled out you know biden keeps saying no no no. It would get any better you do better than this. I don't know evacuate people before you evacuated the military. How about that. Maybe you could have started this process. I dunno January twenty first for instance. Since you knew you're gonna do this anyway. Any anywhere along this path they could have started evacuating people and it isn't trump who left billions of dollars worth of weapons behind either for the taliban have i mean we've really set them up for a good long time. This one is impossible to mistake for anybody else's responsibility but joe robin biden squarely on his shoulders. He can say what everyone's he can squirm. he can lie. He could tell us he didn't make any mistakes. Everybody knows that this was probably as bad as you could possibly do it. This seems to have been carried out by literally by four year olds. Who don't understand the world don't understand what it takes to get people to safety to rescue large numbers of people. Why would you ever take the military out. And then say okay. You're good your era. You're on your own everybody. I mean seriously it makes. Do you think this'll be the downfall. His presidency in other words. Will this cut him short. Well he's going to be cut short anyway. But i don't know if this'll short stay might not know. Maybe i think what it might do. Wake people up to how incompetent he is how damaged she is and how degraded his faculties are. Somebody's gonna have to now take a look at him because they understand. He's not capable of making good decisions. And i stick by that. They are going to distance comma harris as far away from kabul as they can. Yep sure they will end and then that will allow her to be see. I had nothing to do with that so you should put her in now. Boy this is what a dark time for. America it is. Yeah it really. It feels like it's designed to. I'm not gonna lie this this this feels like a a purposeful collapse in every arena imaginable. And and yesterday you know. He pivots off of afghanistan into a cova speech which was terrifying. If you like liberty just even a little bit my gosh. What are we in for us. A nation bad stuff man do we. We have some of that speech but we. I don't know we have the we don't have now. We don't we don't have any. I mean love. How just wheeled around and left. Oh do do we have the full screen. Though of work told him to leave. Oh yes so. Put the teleprompter and prompter imaging right there. Right leave now yes. Please do americans in harm's way or whatever and then underneath that last phrase on the teleprompter leave now. Yeah don't don't take questions or get out of the room mr president. That's the teleprompter there. And he did. He left now rather than saying. Get in trouble for this. Let let me take some questions. Yeah so i mean i. I did live tweet. This as he was speaking. I mean he basically just said he's gonna use the department of education to threaten states and aren't mandating masks and schools city pull federal funding from healthcare facilities. It didn't force employees. Get their shot. All business owners for sure employs to get the shot. He hinted at institutes of higher. Learning should be forcing students to get the shot. You're gonna need a booster shot and eight months after you get the i. It was terrifying and if he wanted to pivot the conversation off of afghanstan boy he did a good job of that at least in the moment but my goodness what are we in for. America take a stand. Take us and go to your school board meetings. Tell your employer. Just i mean you. Got to on a on a micro level. Everybody's got to go to their towns and be your own school. You and your spouse be your school board in homeschool. I mean if you can possibly pull it off. Nobody cares about your children. More than you really should talk.

"Over two days. There was a point in time here. I think this was what john kirby. The pentagon spokesperson was going by when he said this on saturday because the day the day after he was completely wrong. Here's what he said there. kabul is not Right now In an imminent threat environment whoops right now. He said he's gonna say well. It's not right now. It was the next day bill. Oh my god yeah when you nightmare when you say something like that it's like okay but what's even sadder is presently united states. The vice president united states. The head of this. The secretary of defense were they. How come none of these people have addressed the nation to tell us exactly. What's going on now at the same token now that they've waited so long. I won't believe a word they say. Here's the word from nbc news as this one is currently monitoring this situation from camp david with no public events on his schedule for today eliezer addresses the nation. There is so much discourse over this whole thing addresses. The nation tells us what's going to happen. What's the future from here. Are we going to be able to get our people out what happens to the refugees. No answers nothing. They're all asleep at the switch. So here's another. Here's something that came out yesterday. Okay on sunday. And i think the plan has changed. I think because of how badly escalated A fox news report was that department of defense spokesperson john. Kirby seemed guy we just heard from right. Set up to thirty thousand. Afghan applicants for special immigration visas would be housed in to texas basis up to thirty thousand wishes shocking enough. That was the the big gotcha story that may not even be possible now. Because they can't get out i was going to say. How many planes do you need to move thirty thousand people. Even if they're cargo planes in ellen in you're sitting people on benches like you see you know like pale used to sit at the cargo. Sh the crafts. But i you need. i don't know thousands of flights. I can't get one off the ground. So we have tropes troops going back in to try to figure this out to try to get our people but are they can be able to get refugees out if so is that the plan which is going to take them here. I guess th- that's on top of what is unsustainable according to our immigration official my orches- who was at the border in texas and mexico and said what's happening there already is unsustainable. So what do we do with all these people even even if you can get them out. This isn't amazingly bad debacle It's just it's it's terrible. Did they not know. Okay and i know nothing about military strategies but even i'm smart enough to know when the president of an a country leaves in the dead of night. You got a problem. don't you know there's there's there's imminent danger for anybody. Left behind the president afghanstan bolton on saturday nights later by i'm leaving and left all those people behind what kind of president z. By the way is just he left with a with bags full of money in fact so much money that he couldn't take it all..

"No i don't wanna keep troops in afghanistan. I understand that there will be consequences to that. But this is what i believe. And it's also where. I think there's a sizable piece of the american public. Puce been asking this question since at least two thousand and four in while there's a pretty big partisan divide on the question of how active the us should be globally with republicans. Far more likely to say no. Focus at home than democrats even among democrats. You've seen shift in recent years. Where less and less want to say like yes. Let's be on the world stage. In which the way we are. And i i think you know with afghanstan kind of see democracy building in another nation as hard and it's not guaranteed success. And what do we have at the end of twenty years at this point. Do views on foreign policy breakdown by party or is there a bipartisan consensus. Around anti interventionist. More isolationist policies. I think both parties have moved in that direction. I still think that foreign policy is one of the areas where voters are the most likely to follow partisan or leadership cues. I mean you saw that. For instance in views of whether russia is a threat or not prior to the two thousand sixteen election. It was republicans. Were most convinced that we were headed back into cold. War number two with russia and you had democrats. That thought. That was silly. The cold war called at wants its policy back and then you get past the two thousand sixteen election immediately that flips suddenly democrats few russia's this massive challenge on the world stage and republicans. Start to think well maybe russia's not as big of a problem..

It's middle Afghanistan. That's where West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner found himself in twenty twelve after more than a decade serving in the military he was working in. Afghanistan is a military contractor, the roads there were under frequent attack. The mountains were treacherous and the weather could be nasty, and so there were literally months. Wouldn't get mail.

"It looked like only people who kill commies in that region, we're, we're talking about anything else was not. And you brought us up into the late eighties. Basically, the communism fell in Russian eighteen in nineteen ninety nine and so if we look what happened in the nineties, then is development of that source of people coming in from Saudi Arabia, including mister bin Laden, and his friends, and using Afghantistan as a NIST to settle in and using the welcoming of the Afghan people who by that point of radical. Very much in their Mudra says. And so, and, and so then we bring us right up to the decade of tyrannising of us in various, bombings around the world, and many of them, engineered by people who come to have ghanistan found harbour there, what we are suffering today with international Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. We can look at as having been spawned in many ways, but are unfortunate encouragement of what went on there? It's something that if one follow the flow of history, we can see where it's led to even though at the time who could have imagined what it could conceivably lead to. Absolutely. And in other words, if, if it hadn't been for Charlie Wilson, it hadn't been for the I in the US government, they would not have been a successful jihad Soviet Union would not have been pushed out of Afghanstan bin Laden would not have been able to claim that I LA and allow loan with the faithful can roll over the next. Superpower, but they billion dollars of American money, but that's not borrow that one in rhetoric the point. Yeah, but that's key point this was not this is a this is a sensually a fiction, and it it's dangerous fiction that exists in the mind of, of every Islamic student, and the and the world right now because the United States did not take credit for having engaged in this having played a decisive role with the Afghans. It did not go in, and then leave something positive behind with the Afghans didn't manage, the, the energy flows. And so what you get is the Victor stealing the credit and the whole idea is the bin Laden crowd. They do who they did it. They did it alone. And the United States is looked at as an opportunistic group of people that they did something as messenger to kill Russians. But. It wasn't really key. And if people take a look at what's happened subsequent to are very successful, venture in Afghanistan, a year ago, routing the Taliban, they are coming back in some place. It's certainly better today for Afghans in many places than it was. But we have basically bugged out in the sense of being indifferent. But we have not maintained a force to build Afghani society, Kabul has better things for human beings than it had before women. I still fearful of going out without their burqas much is returning to where it was. And this is an amazing thing. We ought to have learned this. We don't we don't learn in Iraq. I don't want to participate here, but, I mean, the notion that we can get out in a couple years without a turning to dust is Mirage and the fact that we thought we could get out of Afganistan of winning by we're done with that will go up to something else, and that nothing, bad would happen belies history, and it's amazing that we are doing. Now with ghanistan after we liberated what we did back then when we helped liberate, it quietly, we, we liberated this time noisily and waving flags. Look what we did look what we did, and then we buy buy buy buy take, you got his run your country by do what they have been able to do ever democracy.

Battle for legitimacy: Afghanistan v the Taliban

"Afghan militants and American officials sat down for their latest round of negotiations in Qatar last week, even as violence continued almost eighteen years since merica and other NATO members invaded Afghanistan. The Taliban is still a powerful and lethal force. Earlier this month an attack by the insurgency group on an American run compound in Kabul, spread chaos and left at least five people dead. In response to the unrelenting violence, America and its allies are now, negotiating with the Taliban seeking withdrawal in exchange for commitment from the group, not harbor terrorists on the ground in Afghanistan are plenty of clues as to why the Taliban has been so hard to beat. So I found myself at this truck stop outside candidate city in southern Afghanistan know, sat on rug of the t there was this kind of enormous storm coming in Daniels is an international correspondent, at the economist, he's been recently reporting enough ghanistan, and these guys told me about what it's like to drive across Afghanistan, they drove all over the country carrying goods. And they, you know, they told me about how they get stopped all the time. By with guns. They get stopped by the Taliban and they get stopped by the Afghan army. And by the police, and what they told me is that, you know, difference between the two, you know, both groups are guys with guns who wanna take money from you. But when you get stopped by the Taliban, there's a kind of fixed fees, they, they look at what you've got and they charge you a fee and they give you a receipt, and you can charge that to your customers. Whereas the government is different. They stop you every time and they just take whatever they can they rob you? So you know what that told me is that the Taliban kind of more organized in some ways than the Afghan government. And that's a problem. And why, why were you in Afghanistan, what were you trying to find out what I wanted to? Find out is why of the eighteen years and almost a trillion dollars and so much support the reason to government in Afghanistan that sort of capable of holding territory that with all the backing of a superpower. Why is it that the Afghan states is not able to win the war with this kind of ragtag group? Taliban. And so you went to kinda hard to find out. Yeah. So I went to Kandahar, and I went to Kabul and Kabul, I met governments fficials and diplomats and people who trying to do this from the top, and then in Kandahar, and I went tonight, talk to ordinary people lorry-drivers and police officers Newsom officials to see kind of their how basil things at the ground level. And what did you learn? So one person I went to see was the governor guy could hire to the higher anything to. He just recently arrived in Kandahar. He's sort of in charge of trying to, to make this place work. And he's very insistent about how important Kandahar is to Afghanistan. The heart is key. If Kandahar is safe of montesano safe it come to hurry, stabilize. So it's devised. He points out that this is really the heart of Afghanstan a place where the first true independent, Afghan state emerged in the eighteenth, century. It's also where the Taliban themselves came from the nineteen nineties Muller, Omar, who is the leader of the Taliban lived in Kandahar. You visited Kabul twice when the Alabama and control it was really one of those places that they, they were adamant in two thousand and one that they would hold onto and NATO troops invaded. And, and so this ambitious new governor, what's, what's his plan. What he talks about the need to recreate the relationship between the government and people make people trust the government and give them reason. To back the government, as opposed to the Taliban was assigned to come here to bring or establish that relation between the central government and, and Kandahar thing relation was a bit weak. He you know, he concedes some real problems in can how that, that the government is not very countable that things need to change. We have people here were here for the last seventeen or eighteen years and are not capable of their jobs, as far as the income is concerned. I think the whole thing is not going into the government pockets, you can see that the Taliban that they have their support that they influential would, you mean when you say that they have influence in, in LeBron's like Kandahar, what do they actually control in terms of actual control in Canada? How the Taliban, they didn't have that much territory, daring control of, but there's sort of a lot more. Influential in places that are not in control of so they're able to mount attacks and plums. And things, but they're also able to work with farmers is a lot of people growing opium in Canada. Opium poppies, which they sell to Taliban middlemen, who, who often do things like provide seek capital who helped people grow, so that they can take chunk of the prophets later, they quite organized in that sense. And that stretches even beyond the parts of the country that they control. And I suppose with this level of organization. And if you like community involvement, that, that gives them a lot of legitimacy notwithstanding, the violent part, I mean, legitimacy is quite strong, but they more legitimate than the government, and that sort of all that they need to be. They're not popular Taliban people don't like them, but they will turn to them, because they're so dissatisfied with the actual government as these talks with America play out and discussion turns to, to draw down from from American troops. How do you think Dr would respond? What would it look like? So that's the big open question is just what happens. So the Afghan government if the support, it's getting from America is disappears, or is, is reduced a lot. They really rely on kind of American military support to be able to still controlled territory. And I think the, the big fear is that the Taliban be able to come back, they'll be able to take a lot more territory. There'd be able to really operate more in the open and have a great deal more influence. So if you have a provincial governor kind of admitting that the central government doesn't really have a good grip on place like Canada, Har. What did the officials in Kabul tell you, you know, not everybody says exactly the same thing? But this kind of picture merges of the president, and the president Ashraf Ghani is a guy who seem pretty much everybody thinks he genuinely wants to transform Afghanistan for the better that he's very committed to the idea of having a better government. But at the same time he's kind of a control freak. Can he thinks that he's the only guy with the plan, and he's really tried to centralize power and to, to hold power to make? All the decisions himself. And that has actually weakened, the legitimacy encounter ability of the government out in places like Kandahar. So what's to be done? Then after eighteen years of American support of, of the central government doesn't seem to have done very much and the US now kind of heading for the door. What, what do you think should be done? So I think could Ashraf Ghani. Well, he has to do is recognize that he's not going to have the support that he has had in the, in the pasta and he needs to it out and get people who don't particularly like him right now onside and perhaps, give up some of the pallet that he is kinda hoarded for himself in Kabul. And, you know, only that way, will he be able to kind of come up with a legitimacy that will allow the government to survive? Thank you very much for your time.

And so it's the only time that there ever asking. For prayers 'cause they wanna get closer to the father know things like that. But we get so distracted with that. So much of us here in the west, you know, we've moved into preaching messages of self preservation rather than spending ourselves for the gospel. And I mean, that's what crisis called the stew for gonna have a best life. So all of a sudden we immediate forty five minutes after landing on the second trip. It was actually my third trip Afghanstan but second trip that year we were we were pulled over by the military arrested and he forty five minutes after getting off the plane, boom, we're being pulled over and they bring us down, and they interrogate us. And it was just oh my gosh. It was it was it was unnerving. We had peace entire time. You know, you got guys vacate forty sevens deserve all all other weapons are kind of Russian issue. And. We're like man, you know, like, this is it this could be in. You know, the guys like Mike commander's gonna come puller bullet in your head. And I told everybody has don't call me Robby. When you when we if we get one when they were pulling us over don't anybody called me Robbie because Robert is my legal name, my passport as because if they Google Robby Dawkins were dead, they'll kill us as soon as they see a minister as soon as they see, you know. Best-case scenarios? They just you know, deport you. But but the reality is there pattern is the other way round. And so anyway, they don't just it's not just they don't just do that to Americans. It is it is because of been Christian leader, you know, that's that's the main reason why so all of a sudden they take us in three and a half hours interrogation. You know, they asked they want information about where you're meeting your meeting west. Doing going through that interrogation. Hi, I'm giving them nothing. I'm like, we're here to see friends, which is true. I these guys raw friends, I'm not I'm not giving them any information. I'm not talking. 'cause I if I tell them, hey, we're here to train people on how to minister the gospel UCLA had to go out on the streets. And you know, if but soon as they opened my suitcase, very foolishly had puts fit. Gene, New Testaments in Farsi on the top of my clothes.

They should be arrest because the culture of the country that we came from. But I just wish for them that there will be so many girls that they will stand up for their rights. And because the only thing we can change as a woman we have to fight for our solve there's nobody else can fight for us as a woman, if we doubt ourself, I'm sure we won't get anywhere because as a person if you doubt yourself, you should not expect from anybody else to tell you who you can be and I just wish for them because every human needs freedom, and I wish for the woman's enough Afghantistan to be who they wanna be and finally. I should raise their waists in fight for what they want. What can the US and the international community be doing to empower women and Afghanstan they have done so much so far to empower women because I was in Afghanistan, and I would see how much they support how much they want women to be an armed force. They want women to be in congress. They one woman to be educated. But only by funding Afghan woman, it does not work because sometimes it not all of them goes to women we need to change more men mentality in Afghanistan to get where we want to be with women's because if we do not have the support of men with us. I don't think this will empower war more women to be there because they're afraid they're afraid that they will not be welcomed there. And as a woman, it's difficult because if you don't change the society. Just I think it doesn't help really it has to be changed through a culture through a man. And that's when we can empower women, and of course, raising lots of women's and getting lots of women's together that they should be together and supporting each other. And if we are congresswoman we are there to support other women in the country, and that's how it should be. And that's how all those women when they are there. They need to fight for other women that they don't have a ways, and I hope this will change. I hope this will definitely change in Afghanistan. So it sounds like it will take women empowering other women and men's inclusion in all of these conversations to really raise the voices of of women themselves. Absolutely. Because as a woman, we need Hauer woman to support us have if we don't have the support of our woman, I think it's difficult. We don't we shouldn't expect from. Don't support that. We don't have the support of woman as you've told your story if you times, what has no one asked you that you wish someone would ask you. Oh, that's awesome. You know, there's always questions in our mind that we wish people with ask us. I think for me. I wish always if people would ask me if I was given the second live who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do differently. I think if I was given the sicken chance I think I would approach it differently. I would try to empower more women, and I would try to keep my family away from this. And I would have opened a flight school for girls in Afghanistan that I would get lots of women's there. If I could train lots of women, those women could train lots of other women. So that's how we would create a bake pilot woman community, and that was the time that we would go out in the society, and we would work the same as other men's and that time would nobody would tell us. It's only one woman one woman is always Josh d-. And that way, we would be plenty of woman and. Nobody would tell us. This is not how replace strengthened numbers. Yes. Exactly. I think it's a perfect way to wrap this up, captain, captain, rob Mony. Thank you so much for the time, and for for helping paint a picture of what life is like for you.

I mean, let's be honest about it. We don't pass a budget. We look at the government is you and I are talking. The government is still locked out hard working people supposedly to provide services to our fellow citizens are not able to go to work or are going to work with no pay. But you know, you look at this on that. And and there's strong now and stronger support growing support for the president's position among Republicans. Yes. And that is that is exactly the way in which the country has been polarized by a president who signed off on. Agreement. David said to Mitch McConnell bring to the floor. I will sign it and a couple of days later because government that keep the government open the government opens people moving in. And and this president is not go shitting. He doesn't negotiate. This is a man who claims to be the world's greatest negotiator negotiating he pulled out of TPP. Did he fix it? Did he do something for workers? Did he make it better? No just pulled out ceded power in Asia. Which you know, we worked extremely hard to build up that that position you can disagree with EP. I'm not sitting here as advocates. But if you if you're great negotiator present it to them with some changes. And I guarantee you he could have had a new agreement within months. It said, look, I am the greatest negotiator pulls out. A Paris gets absolutely nothing on climate change accord gets absolutely nothing for pulling out of Paris pulls out of Iran doesn't get anything. Except now a greater polarization greater danger of the possible. In the war, greater conflict. Not empowering the Iranians to be able to come to the table. He pulls out of Afghantistan. He says we're going to get out of Afghanstan pulls the rug out from under his own negotiator. Who was about to sit down and go she ate with the Taliban. That's the biggest card of all whether you're going to pull out or not pulls out of Syria without leveraging out of the Syria agreement something for the Kurds something with respect to Russia and ran in order to have an agreement as to the future of Syria and Iraq and the region. None of these things take place. This is the this is the pull out walkaway presidency. And it is not enhancing the interest of the United States of America. You secretary Pompeo was is is just been in the Middle East. He made a speech in Cairo in which he was which was a repudiation of the Obama foreign policy. Did it from the very platform? I was there in ten years ago. Oh and President Obama made his outreach to the world tried to isolate extremism, and he said the age of self inflicted American. Shame is over. Look at all the things I just said are who's kidding? Who are you? Are you kidding me? The age of shames over when a president United States capitulates, the president of Russia and adopts his point of view Afghantistan when he stands up, and and in a moment of ignominy just capitulates in from the president on whether or not says, I believe Putin not my intelligence community with respect to what happened in America. That's a moment of shame. When the president nine states. Pulls out of Syria and General Mattis resigns Brett mcgurk who's done a masterful job working the counter ISIS warns resigns that is a moment of shame. So I just you know, we gotta get our fact straight here. He was. You know, when when I was watching the serious story unfold, I thought of you, and when I see these guys traveling Middle East trying to settle and the world trying to settle allies down after the president did would he did an announcer spontaneously? He was pulling out in you had this uncomfortable situation in two thousand fourteen relative to the red line, the use of chemical weapons, you you're a strong proponent, and you write about it in your book that America should have gone forward, and bombed you actually with the White House is knowledge agreement gave a speech that lay the predicate for all of that. And then the president lay Lakeside. side. Thanks presence insider, and the president made you think it was mistakes. I think that.

But I got ninety people got a bunch of people on board the bus already and the girlfriends and concubines waiting at the airport to go on this trip. I mean ready for. Do some duty free shopping. So it can drink a bunch of Hennessy on the way over and be good and Baraja when they land in Brussels. What are we doing president canceled the trip president? Did you tell the speaker? We're on the phone with the right now, what did she say? Well, I can't quote her. You get you get two or three of these opportunities in your entire life to just perfectly stick it to somebody to leave somebody so in the lurch that that they just they find themselves shaking with rage and anger. And that's what that was what was happening with her. And it's so beautiful to think that all night long the president. Well, he never sleeps. But to the extent that he was laying in a bed was laying in that bed. Watching the clock going. I can't wait till three. Oh, I can't wait till three o'clock tomorrow. Nancy? You're gonna get it. You're gonna get it. Fancy. Nancy? You're gonna gal look at it. It's one forty five in the morning, I'm so tempted to just put it out there known alumni, wait till they're on the way to the airport, and we're gonna pull the pull the plug pull the plug. See Nancy Pelosi, and these congress people if they were committed to the trip they would just go and fly commercial. But you know, what Nancy and the congress people were most afraid of they have to go through a air force airbase to fly over there because otherwise they would be subjected to the anger and rage of the flying public at Dulles or at Reagan, and they would be subjected to the anger and rage of the TSA workers who do you like, what are you guys? Go. Conan Afghanstan Brussels with the house. We don't even get paid. We're dying over here. Oh, my kidney for an apple product does a guy. But I mean, this is what's happening. They're afraid to see the people. President must have just been laying in that bed last night going home. I'm going to get her. I'm not going to cancel it. I'm gonna postpone it because she wants me to postpone the state of the union, I'm gonna postpone her trip. This is a very bad. No. It was not a very bad decision. It was pretty smart decision. Because you look really bad. The president has an audience of one that he is championing for himself. You must keep your caucus your fa- Kochta caucus together. And they don't want to stay together. They don't trust you, Nancy. They don't trust you at all. Don't you know, who I am? Yes. Yes. You're the speaker of the house of representatives of an essentially shut down government. Congratulations. Boy, did you win the prize?.

"And of course. It was allowed us thing. Anybody heard in a while? So I- patted my stomach, and he said, well, it must be hungry. Which obviously wasn't it. Just eight seventeen pounds Chinese food. Got it. Sam you ever have that happen? Same can't speak right now. Because this topic especially she probably knows what you're talking about. I definitely does. Because we have the same sort of stomach. Yeah. Also because she's probably heard your stomach do it. So you kidding me? Her whole life. What do you believe that that probably that's for? Sure. That's that's literally she's heard playtime. It's eight eight eight nine four one pags joepags dot com. Let me go to the phone lines. I appreciate your patients going to be Bob in Texas. Hi, bob. How you doing tonight living the dream happening? Well, I was thinking that, you know, everybody wants people don't wanna wall, and we got the greatest in the world instead of running around the world taking care of everybody else lists just put on our borders and protect ourselves. The only way we could do that. Because a lot of people have said that Bob it because the military's job is not is not to do that. That's the national guards job at for some reason not allowed to let them do it. If you if you make installations in basis along the border that would make sense to me because then you would have people actually stationed there, but just to put them on the border with guns drawn and tanks and ready to go. I think that's the job. It is our job is to protect the United States. And that I know because I spent twenty two years in the military. Okay. We'll tell me when you were stationed on the border protecting the border. I'll listen. I'm here in Texas or heard Fort Bliss bliss. Fort Hood is nowhere near the border. Okay. Let's let's be honest. All right. Well, it's a little more than that is about three hours of San Antonio. It's probably another hour and a half two hours from there. Having said that I'm not gonna argue with you because you've got you've got great service. And I appreciate your service. But I'm just making the point you were in the military. Hold on hold on. I'm listening. I promise you finish the idea of putting people on the border, and you said you were in the military for so long. My question wasn't rhetorical or facetious. How many times were you stationed on the border to protect it from people coming in the answer? I would think is none. But if I'm wrong, tell me. Correct to a point, but we do have bases along the border. And that's what I'm talking about. I think that your idea works if you put basis on the border, but you know, the military's job is to go and fight wars. And yes, an argument could be made that there's a war on the border that there's an urgency in the border, the president has to declare these things or the congress has to declare these things I would much rather tell me what you think of this idea. Maybe maybe I'm all wet. But I would rather we take the national guard and put them near the border or on the border to bolster the border patrol and ice to actually guard the nation that's supposed to be the job. You can't take the national guard. They're supposed gardening. But if you take a national guard and put him somewhere else that national guard is going to complain because you're taking him out of his regular job. He's not make as much money as he was what did they fit? No, no. I'm saying I'm saying leave them at their pay leave them at their job, and let them actually guard the nation by putting them near the border doesn't that make sense to call the national guard. Right. But not a lot of not gonna go 'cause they're not gonna wanna leave the area. They live in the go somewhere else to bad when you sign you sign up. That's. The military guests to say your they want. I agree. I agree. I did that Obama bubble here to tell you that. I don't disagree with you and fury. I wouldn't either to be a declaration of war by congress before I want the US military to go and be on the border ready for a fight. You have to look at somewhere somewhere along the line. We have to stop taking people in and we have to stop cleaning police for the world. We agree. I absolutely agree. We are the police for the world that a lecture. I'm not sure how we got that roll roll. Yeah. This is it a war in the Middle East right now. We got soldiers in Syria. No. We don't have soldiers in Syria. I don't think but we have soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. We're pulling soldiers out of Syria. And that what they said we're pulling any presence that we have we're not they're fighting a war our job. There was to train the the locals how to fight ISIS and so on. I mean, you know, that that there are different missions for military around the world. The Warren Afghanstan is still going on that hasn't ended. So yes, there's a war in the Middle East. Okay. No. Well, yes. The congress gave the president the absolute ability to go to Afghanistan and get the guys they trained al-qaeda absolutely congress agreed with Bush. What's that? But the thing is is. Those the people over there that we're helping they're not fighting. We are. All right love you like crazy. But I think we can probably go for the next seven hours. I'm not really sure every time I say, something, you you change topics. But I I love your service. I love your mind. I love your perspective. I don't disagree with you. But without a declaration of war or without an emergency declaration. I don't see sending our military to the border. But it carried that you get the feeling that no matter what I said Bob just wanted to talk some more. I do. Yeah. Could've gone on for like a brother. Now. I mean, all right here in Texas. I thought. Fort Hood was on the border. I don't know. But it's not driven through clean many times. And I love being on there where we're on including now, but I just get traffic tickets down. I'm just saying you see me coming Kaleen, Fort Hood. Just just give me a pass one of these times. Eight eight eight nine four one pags joepags dot com. Let's take a break.

"afghanstan" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show

"I don't necessarily think that translates into a solid policy that became particularly true in President Trump's talks about issues of history. So you don't need to be a historical scholar to achieve the right answer on foreign policy. But sometimes it helps it means that you are less gullible. It means you're less likely to fall for a cell flattering version of history. Pushed by revisionist historians of the Russians are the leading revisionist historians on planet earth right now every intervention in which they've ever engaged was apparently justified. Vladimir Putin sounds like he was whispering into President Trump's ear when President Trump talked yesterday about the situation Afghanstan he basically suggested that he was interested in pulling out from Afghanistan. And then he made a very weird move. He started talking about why the Russians needs to be involved in Afghanistan, and he defended the nineteen seventy nine Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. No, I don't know why he would do that. I will admit that. I would listen to a drunk history podcast with President Trump doing history. Because this is not bear any relationship with reality. What he's about to say. And the fact that you have a Republican president who's now praising the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, which lest we forget happened under Jimmy Carter and leads wreck lead to the election of Ronald Reagan in nineteen eighty why Republican president would now be praising the policies of Leonid, Brezhnev. That's beyond me. But here's President Trump defending the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. I guess to defend the idea that we should thrust responsibility for Afghanistan on the Russians maybe something like that. Reason Russia was in in Afghanistan was because terrorists will going into Russia. They were right to be there. The problem is it was a tough fight. And literally they went bankrupt. They went into heating called Russia again as opposed to the Soviet Union. A lot of a lot of these places you're reading about now are no longer part of Russia because of ghanistan. Okay. That is I'm not sure there's a thing there. That's true. So number one Russia did not go into Afghanistan because of terrorism the rise of radical Islamic terrorism and Afghanistan and today well postings the Russian leaving Afghanistan and the American leaving Afghanistan, right? The rise of Osama bin Laden happened in the aftermath of the mujahideen driving the Russians out of Afghanistan in the first place. The reason that Afghanistan was invaded by the Russians because the Russians cooed legitimate government, Afghanistan and put in place, a communist governments Afghanistan, which was then attempted. There was an attempted rebellion Afghantistan and the Russians have. At the behest of their communist puppet. Governments went in an occupied the country. Right. That's the reason the Russians were in Afghanistan. The notion that the Russians went in there because of terrorism and their right to be there is almost insane one. Okay. It's just patently historically illiterate. It is not true in the slightest. And when the president says that Afghanistan, drove the Soviets bankrupt, it damaged the Soviet capacity wore mostly damaged them in terms of public relations meant that all of the fringe nations on the edges of the Soviet Union looked at the Russians, and they said, well, you don't really have the capacity to keep us here. So if we feel like leaving we're just going to leave but to say that Afghans San is what drove the Soviets bankrupt will communism. Drove the Soviets bankrupt Afghanistan was just a symptom of the Soviet bankruptcy that had already taken place. Now, why does any of this matter? I'll explain in just saying why isn't interest President Trump mouthing off. I'll explain in just one second first, let's talk about how you can make your business better.
